Pocket Book Lost. Thomas Chambers, of
Grahamton, lost his pocket book on Friday
last, between Howard Merrell's tavern and
tho former place. A description or the con
tent is given in an advertisement in another
colnmn of this paper.
Another. Geo. Wilson, of Bradford town
ship, whilst in this place, on the 29th, lost his
pocket book, containing 30 in money." The

New Bcildisg. We are pleased to learn
that James B. Graham, Esq., is about commen
cing the erection of a large store-house on
Market street, between his residence and the
Row which bears his name. It is to be of
brick, S4 feet front by 54 deep, three stories
liigh, and is to be completed so that it can be
occupied next spring. Such a building will
not only be an ornament and credit to our
town, but it will show that we have men hero
who are abla aud have the enterprize to keep
up with the progress of tho age, which exhib
its itself bo strikingly in almost every other
ssction ol this great country of ours.
Highway Kobbert. On Tuesday of last
Week, a colored man named Jones was robbed,
In broad daylight, near Lumber City, in this
county, of $27 in money and a promissory
note of $102. It seems that three men in
duced Jones to take a walk along tho River
beach below the town, for the purpose of en
gaging in a game of cards. : A short time af
ter, he was found there in a senseless condi
tion, caused, it is supposed, by either drugs
or liquor,) and robbed ot his pocket book con
taining the money and notes. Ono of the
men, named E. II. Baker, was subsequently ar
rested, and on Thursday brought to this place
and committed to jail. Yesterday evening,
the other two men who are charged with tl
ofience, were also brought here and lodged in
prison. Their names are Robt. 31. Reed and
W nr. Lyons-. Baker alleges that he did not take
part lo tho robbery, having left before it took
"place. Highway robbery is bad enough under
any circumstances, but for white men to rob a
negro in the manner in which this one is said
fo have been robbed, is a degree of meanness
and degradation in crime which we were not
prepared to hear of being attained in any civ
ilizcit country. It is a satisfaction to know
that the guilty parties are not natives of our
county.- We hope-that all who are guilty will
be punished to the utmost extent of the law. :
1eath or a Revolutionary Soldier. On
Friday, March 23d, Joiin-Lcdwiq Snyder, died
at his residence in Burnside township, 1his
county, at the advanced age of one hundred
j&nd thirteen years, seven months and eighteen
Aaysf lie was born in Michaelstadt, near
Manheim, Germany, on the 5th day of August,
1716. He arrived in America in 1758, being
22 years of age at the time of his arrival, and,
consequently, has resided in this country 101
years, 7 months and 18 days. He entered the
American service in 1775, and continued in it
throughout the wbolo war. He was along with
Washington when he crossed tho Delaware on
Christmas night 177G, and was in tho battle of
Trenton, Dec. 2Gth. Day was just breaking
when they drove in the outposts of the Hes
sians, through a violent snow-storm, ne took
part in the battle of Brandywine, Sept. 11th,
1777, under Lafayette, and, having been trans
ferred to Gen. Wayne's division, was in the
flefti-tof "JIad Anthony," near Paoli, Sept.
20th, 1777.siIo was in the battle of German
town, Oct. 4th, and encamped with Washing
ton at Valley Forge, Dec. 11th, of tho same
year. He considered that winter tho coldest
he ever experienced. The soldiers suffered
much fromscantiness of elothing, and, shoot
ing squirrels, they flayed them and drew the
kina over their feet for shoes.; On the 28th
of June, 1778, ho was in the battle of Mon
tnonth under Wayne, and along with him at
the storming of Stony Point, where they ysed
that thrilling watchword, "Remember Paoli,
brave boys 1" He was with Lafayette at the
surrender of Cornwallis at Ybrktown, October
29th, 1781, and in a number of other engage
ments of less importance than thoso men
tioned. We are not aware at what period he
came to this region, bat ho was among the
first settlers of the south-western part of our
county. Ho leaves a Urge progeny to tho
fourth generation his descendants numbering
near three , hundred. .. II is wife died in 1858,
gad 108 years. Immediately preceding her
death, they were tho oldest living couple in
the United States. Sir. Snyder retained the
igor of his constitution to a remarkable de
- gree, always enjoyed good health until of late
he began to have weak spell, and was only
bedfast from the Sabbath before he died.
When he was upwards of 90 years of age, he
walked to Clearfield town, a distance of 30
miles, and back again the samo day, which
would make 6G miles, and did not feel any the
worse of his walk. A number of persons liv
ing near his residence, can testify to the fact.
He never missed attending the polls at a Pres
idential or Governor's election since the or
ganization of the Government, ne was an
upright man and a good citizen never mur
mured about any thing had no enemies that
e was aware or, and died respected and hon
cred by all who knew him'.
Accident. On the 2Gil nil., Mr. Robert
Whiteside had one of hss thighs fractured and
was otherwise injured by a saw log rolling ovr
him, whilst he was engaged piling up logs on
Clearfield creek, about two miles this side of
Gled Hope, in this county.
Camkron Cocnty. The bill providing for
the erection of a new county out of parts of
Clinton, Elk, McKean and Potter counties, to
be called "Cameron," in honor of our distin
guished U. S. Senator, has passed both branch
es of the Legislature, and is now in the hands
of the Governor for his approval or rejection.
" . Burglary. A few nights ago, the store of
Geddes, Marsh & Co., in Bell township, was
burglariously entered and robbed of several
articles. A young man, named John Mont
gomery, charged with: the ofience, was arrest
ed on Monday by constable Snyder of that
township, and brought as far as Curwensville,
where ho managed to make his escape from
the officer, and has not been heard of since.
Death" of John R. Morrow. By a letter
from Knoxvillo, Rock Island county, Illinois,
directed to his brother, II. Hays Morrow, of
the Clearfield House, we learn that John R.
Morrow, formerly a resident of our town, was
killed at Knoxville, on the 21st of March, by
the premature discharge of a cannon, which
he was assisting to fira on the occasion of the
death of Gov. Bissel. It seems the swabbers
had not been sufficiently careful injcleaning all
the fire out of the gun, and an explosion en
sued when the load was in but a short distance
The ramrod was split into pieces, ono of which
penetrated tho breast of Mr. Morrow, cansing
his death in a few moments. He was buried
on the 22d, with the honors of war. He leaves
a wife and three small children. .
Infanticide. Last Friday moruing the body
of a white male infant, which had seemingly
come to its time, was found in the Susquehan
na river at this place. The coroner elect not
having lifted his commission, Esquiie Frank
was called upon to act in tho case. Accor
dingly, ho summoned a jury, who being duly
qualified, proceeded to inquire into the mat
ter, for the purpose of ascertaining, if possible,
who was the mother of the child, and how it
came to be placed in the River. Tho body
was then taken . up and removed to a room In
the Town Hall, where a post mortem exami
nation, was made by Drs. Wood, llartswick
aDd Wilsot,who mado use of the usual tests to
ascertain whether it had been born alive. After
this, a largo number of witnesses were brought
before tho inquest, and from their testimony
the jury were led to believe that Mrs. Sarah
Brenneraan, a widow, was the mother, and a
warrant for her arrest was issued, on Saturday
When the officer went to serve the warrant, he
found that the woman had disappeared, and,
as was subsequently ascertained, had conceal
ed herself in the woods near town. The next
morning, near daylight, she was, however, dis
covered entering tho house of her mother on
Second street, where she was at once appre
hended, brought before a justice, and- com
mitted to prison, after having confessed t'jat
the child was hers. On Monday, tho jury of
inquest took some additional testimony, and
then rendered a verdict to the effect that the
child was born alive, that it had been deprived
of life by violence on the part of its mother,
and that Lctitia Dunlap, the mother of Mrs.
Brenneraan, was accessory bef ore and after the
fact. A warrant i3 out for the latter, who has
not been arrested in consequence of her leav
ing town. As the whole affair will be judici
ally investigated, we refrain from making any
comments on it-
THE FSEE BANKING LAW.
The following are the main provisions and
safeguards of the bill to incorporate a system
of Free Banking in this Commonwealth as it
passed both branches of our Legislature :
"A certificate stating the particulars as to
the bank to bo established must be drawn up,
appioved by the Attorney General, published
in tho newspapers, recorded in tho Courts.
and a copy deposited and recorded in tho Au
ditor General's Office. -
"The Auditor General has the notes engra
ved and printed. Every note must be signed
by him or by his clerk, numbered and regis-
tered, and have stamped on it "secured bv the
deposit of public stock."
"The stocks deposited must be cither of
this State, or cf the United States, and tho
amount of notes issued to the Bank by the
Auditor General to be equal to the market val
ue of the stock less five per ceDt. provided
that this is never to exceed ninety-five per
cent, of the stock.
"Twenty per cent, in specie must bo paid
in before the bank can begin business, and it
must always keep in its vaults, in specie,
twenty per cent, of the amount of notes issued,
as a security additional to the stock in the
hands of the Auditor General.
"The capital stock cannot be less than fiftv
thousand nor more than one million of dollars.
No note less than five dollars to be issued.
"As soon as a bank stops the payment of
specie the Auditor General appoints three
citizens to make inquiry, and if they report
that the Bank is suspended, he is to appoint a
receiver, who is to turn all the assets into
money and pay first the note-holders ; second
the depositors; third the other debts ; and
fourth to distribute tho remainder among the
stockholders pro 'rata. ; ; -
- "The condition of each bank must be pub
each semi annual dividend day a statement is
to be made on the oath of the President and
Cashier, which is to be sent to the Auditor
General and published, setting forth minute
ly the condition of the Bank. Existing banks
may come under this bill.
1 "Defalcation is to be punished by impris
onment in the penitentiary for from one to
ten years. "
- "A tax is to be' paid on dividends to the
State of from eight to thirty per cent."
The Governor has approved the bill.
. trPotatoes have experienced a great fall
withinttbe past two weeks, and it is said, are
now selling through Burlington county, N. J.,
at thirty to thirty-seven cents per bushel, and
it is thought that prices will rulo still lower,
as there is a largo stock on hand and no signs
of the rot.

OOSTETTER'S STOMACH HITTERS
jLM. It is a fact that, at some period, every mem
ber of tho human family is subject to disease or
disturbance of the bodily functions; but, wilh tho
aid ot a good tonic and the exercise of plain com
mon sense, taey may be able so to regulate tho sys
tem as to secure permanent health, in order to ac
complish this desired object, the true course to pur
sue is certainly that which will produce a natural
state of things at the least hazard of vital strenirth
and life. For this purpose. Dr. Hostetter has in
troduced to this country a preparation bearing his
name, which is not a new medicine, but ono that
has been tried for years, giving satisfaction to all
who have used it.. Ihe Bitters operate powerfully
upon the stomach, bowels, and liver, restoring them
to u healthy and vigorous action, and thus, bv
the simple process of strengthening nature, ena
ble the system to triumph over disease.
Jror the cure ot Dyspepsia, lndisestion. Nausea.
Flatulency, Lossof Appetite. or Bilious compUints,
arising from a morbid inaction of the Stomach or
era Morbus, Ac", theso Bitters have no equal.
Diarrhaja, dysentery or flux, so generally con
tracted by new settlers, and caused principally by
the change of water and diet, will be speedily reg
ulated by a brief use of this preparation. Dyspep
sia, a disease which is probably more prevalent,
in all its various forms, than any other, and the
cause of which may always be attributed to de
rangements of the digestive organs, can be cured
without fail by using IIOSTETTER'S STOMACH
BITTERS, as per directions on the bottle. For
this disease every physician will recommend Bit
ters of some kind; then why not use an article
known to be infallible ? All nations have their
Bitters, as a preventive of disease and strong ;hen
er of the system in general; and among them all
there is not to bo found a mere healthy people
than the Germans, from whom this preparation em
anated, based upon scientific experiments which
have tended to prove the value of this erear, pre
paration in the scale of medical science.
h evkh and Agce. Ihis trvini and Brovoltincr
disease, which fixes its relentless grasp on the bo
dy of man, reducing him to a mere shadow in a
short time, and rendering him physically and men
tally useless, can be driven from the body by the
use of IIOSTETTER'S RENOWNED BITTER'S.
Further, none of the above-stated diseases c;m be
contracted, even in exposed situations,.if thij Bit-
iurs are usca as per aireciions. Ana as tiiey nei
ther create nausea nor oflend the palate, and ren
der unnecessary any change of diet or interrup
tion of ordinary pursuits, but promote sound sleep
and healty digestion, and the complaint is remo
ved as speedily as is consistent with the produc
tion of a thorough and permanent cure.
l'or Persons in Advanced Years, who are saCer-
ng from an enfeebled consitution and infirm body.
these Bitters are invaluable as a restoratire of
strength and vigor, and need only bo tried to be
appreciated. And to a mother while nursing theso
Bitters are indispensable, especially where the mo
ther's nourishment is inadequate to the demands
of the child, consequently her strength must yield,
and here it is where a good tonic, such as H s tet
ter's Stomach Bitters, is needed to impart tempo
rary strength and vigor to the system. Ladies
should by all means try this remedy for all ca
ses of debility, and, before to doing, should ask
their physician, who, if he is acquainted witli the
virtue of the Stomach Bitters, will recommend
their use in all cases of weakness.
Caitfion. We caution the public against nsintr
any of the many imitations or counterfeits, but ask
for Hostetter 's Celebrated Stomach. Bitters, and see
that each bottle has tho words "Dr. J. Ilostetter's
Stomach Bitters" blown on the side of the bottle,
and stamped on the metallic cap covering the cork,
and observe that our autograph signature is on the
