On Thursday night of last week a robbery
wai committed et the Susquehanna House,
in Sunbtiry, kepi by Michael Wilverl, by two
men, who enteied one of the windows and
carried of nine coats, a pair of boots and a
hut. The latter was dropped in the slieet
before the thieves succeeded in carrying
oway their booty. It appears that two boat
men belonging to a boat lying at the coal
wharves had been at the house in the eve
ning previous to the robbery, and when the
tlielt was discovered early the next morning,
Mr. Wilvert immediately suspected these
men. Warrants were obiained from Squire
Sbindel, and Constable Brosions proceeded to
ihe boat to apprehend the supposed offenders
They were not to be found there but pres
ently made ihtir appearance ill a skiff from
ihe other side of the river. Upou being ques
tioned what i hey" had been doing on the oilier
side ol iho river they replied that they had
gone across to feed their horses; but the dri
ver of the boat assured the constable that the
horses were not on the oilier side of the river
the men were arrested upon the additional
suspicion produced by their prevarication,
{subsequently, the officer crtftsed the river,
mid found the coats concealed under a rock
along the Blue Mill. Ten coats were found,
although but riii e had been stolen. Mere
was a mystery that could not be solgcd, until
it was discovered that one of tho men, who
appeared before the Justice in his shirt sleeves,
had fallen into the river,-and the tenth coat
was found to be wet, and in the same moist
condition as his other clothing. It was his
coat, and lie had placed it with the stolen
goods until it would become dry. This cir
cumstantial evidence was too strong to be
disregarded, and the (wo gentlemen who had
made so fine a start in the clothing business
were provided with rooms in Sheriff Wise's
boarding house. We have not learned their
names, nor the section of country from which
they bail.— Sunbury Giuette.
Some of ike Signers of the Memorial. —The
New Haven Register says:
"Among the signers who remonstrated with
President Buchanan against the observance
of bia oath to 'see that the laws are faithfully
executed,' are the names of persons who con
tributed six of the twenty-seven rifles given
at the famous North Church meeting in 1856,
to 'shoot border-ruflians.' It was on that me
moriable occasion that Rev. Henry Ward
Beecher told the New Haven Kansas Com
pany that 'it was a shame to shoot at a man
and not hit him!' These worthies seem to
have changed their tactics of late. Remem
bering that 'those who take the sword' are
apt to 'die by the 6Word,' they have wisely
dropped the 'border-ruffians,' and taken to
'praying for the President'—a safer, and we
trust, a mora fructifying occupation."
A TOWN IN KANSAS.—The Sumner (Kan
sas) Gazette says of that town : It is only six
teen weeks old, contains between three and
four hundred inhabitants, has or.e of the best
steam saw-mills in the western country in
active operation, and two more building; has
*" enckl hotel.and one commenced that will
cost 823,000 when finished ; has seven stores,
one wagon-maker, one shoemaker, one
blacksmith, and three carpenter-shops; has
subscribed 81,000 for a church edifice, and
haß a printing office and a free school.

case, recovery is certain.and in a shortor time

other treatment, even after the disease has baf
i fled the skill of eminent physicians and resist
ed all the means of cure. The medicines are
pleasant without odor, causing r.o sickness
and free from mercury or balsam. During 20
yea is of practice, I have rescued from the
jaws of death many thousands, who, in the
last stages of the above mentioned diseases
had bean given up to die by their physicians,
which warrants me in promising to the afflict
ed, who may placs themselves under my care,
a perfect and most speedy cure. Secret dis
eases are the greatest enemies to health, as
they arc the first cause of Consumption, Scrof

' terror to the human family. As a permanent
cure is scarcely ever effected, a majority of
j the cases falling into the hands of incompo
tent persons, who not only fuil to cure the
diteasrs but ruin the constitution, filling the
system with mercury, which, with the disease,
hastens the sutferei into a rapid consumption.
But should the disease and the troalment
' not cause death speedilv and the victim mar

are horn with feeble constitutions, and the
current of life corrupted by a virus which be

Self-abuse is another formidable enemy to
health, for nothing elsg in the dread catalogue
of human diseases causes so destructive a drain
upon the system, drawing its thousands of
victims through a few years of suffering down
to an untimely grave, ft destroys the Ner

of life, causes mental derangement, preveuts

confidence I assure the unfortunate violims ot

can bo effected, and with the abandonment of
ruinous practices my patients can be restored
