CLEARFIELD, PA., JULY 18, 1860.
Several mistakes were Inadvertently made
last week in the list of Vigilance Committees.
The list is now correct. ;: s ? , : " V
.' Tail Clovsr. Mr. Isaac Thompson, of
Lawrence township, left at oar office some of
the tallest sort of clover one of tho stalks
measuring 6 feet.
IlABVESTDia. The farmers in this county
are busy cutting their rye and wheat, and so
far as we have been able to learn, the yield and
quality of these cereals will be good. The
hay crop is unusually large and good, and oats
and corn have a promising appearance.
Da. A. 31. Hills desires to notify his friends
and patrons in the vicinity of New Washing
Ion that be will visit that place on the week
'commencing 30th July. All persons desiring
his services as a Dentist, will please call early
in the week, so that arrangements may be
made to accommodate all. 2t. .

A Splendid Mineral Fountain. Loraino
Jt Co., at their establishment on Market St.,
have a mineral water fountain which surpasses
anything outside of the cities, and has but
Jew equals in them. Persons fond of indulg
ing in icy.cold and sparkling mineral water,'
should by all means call at Loraine & Co's. '
Hoese Stolen almost. On last Sunday
inorning, before daylight, some fellow entered
"Win. A. Wallace's lot, at the lower end of
town, it which he was pasturing his horse, and
catching the animal, started off with him.
Some or Mr. Morgan's family, being disturbed
by the noise, rose from bed, and seeing what
was going on, gave the alarm. Sheriff Miller
and Andrew Shugarts started in pursuit, and
chased the scamp so close that he abandoned
the horse about four miles east of town, and
made good his escape. The horse was brought
back by the pursuing party.
Accident. On Wednesday, the llth inst.,
Mr. George Perkins, whilst engaged in remo
ving slabs (trom the saw-mill of Mr. Charles
Schnars, in Karthaus township, this county,
met with a sad and painful accident. It seems
ihat ho was in the act of removing a slab from
the mill, and instead of drawing it back before
elevating it, ho raised, or attempted to raise it
iver the circular saw, whilst it was in motion,
induing which the end of the slab nex;tlie
saw was caught, and with Mr. Perkins drawn
tgaiust the saw, which cut his arm badly, near
ly all the muscles between the elbow and wrist
lcing lacerated. Had not the slab struck one
f the timbers in the mill, and stopped, Mr.
LP. would in all probability have been sawed
Fbiohtfil Accident. About 6 o'clock last
'Saturday afternoon, a frightful accident oc
curred at the drug store of Loraine & Co., in
this borough. It appears that among other ar
ticles which had just been unloaded at their
ttoor, was a 5-gallon bottle of sulphuric acid,
which, after being placed on a box,' was acci
dentally broken. ' A large quantity of the acid
Mruck Mr. Loraine on the less above tho
.knees, snd running to his feet, destroyed his
pantaloons and burnt his limbs in a dreadful
manner. Several other persons standing close
by, were more or less bnrned among them
two small boys, one a son of George Richards
uud the other a son of George Thorn. Mr.
Charles Larrimer and Mr. George W. Rheem
unls' boy was being taken home, to the oppo
oito side of tho street, II. B. Swoope, Esq.,
hurried i.Ho the drug-store to get some soda
to apply to the burns and neutralize the effects
f the acid. When he came out of the door,
he did not perceive that the acid had collected
there, and stepping into it, he fell, dashing
his right foot and right hand through it,burning
them frightfully. His face was also burned
badly, and his entire suit of clothes destroyed.
He has been confined to his room ever since,
but his wounds are gradually improving. Mr.
Loraine has been moving around some, but
his injuries are also severe. The injuries sus
tained by others, were comparatively slight,
and subject them to little or no inconvenience.
It is rather astonishing that, with such a num
ber in close proximity when the accident oc
curred, so many escaped unharmed.
Another "Mysterious Disappearance."
Mr. J. W. Dutcher, formerly of this place,
urs the Tyrone Star, but who has latterly been
residing in Greensburgh, Westmoreland Co.
left his home, on the 2Gth of June, for the
purpose of going into Clearfield county, to
look for a place where he might establish him
self as a jeweler. His wife, not hearing from
him for some days, became alarmed and, on
making enquiries, learned that her faithless
husband had left Clearfield, on the evening of
the 1st of July, in the direction of Brookville,
in company with a woman named Martha
Potts, who bad formerly resided in his family
as a domestic, and who is well known in this
neighborhood. She also Ioarncd that, previ
ous to leaving Clearfield, Dutcher had bought
this woman a handsome bonnet and a silk
dress, and made her many other presents.
-Mrs. Dutchcr is now In Tyrone, and in the
-deepest distress. Her heartless husband had
left her entirely destitute, with a young child,
and a prospect of soon becoming again a moth
er. A mark should be placed upon him wher
ever be goes, ana editors will confer a favor
upon his wife by noticing this article. Dutch
cr is a jeweller by trade, dresses well, and is
-rather prepossessirg in his appearance, ne
has jewelry with him for sale. The girl is
rather stout, with black hair, and large black
eyes. Any information of her husband's
whereabouts Will be gratefully received by
Mrs. Dutcher, and, if he will return, she is
willing to forgive him everything.
A man answering the above description
was in this place about the time mentioned,
and left in company with a girl with "black
air, and large black eyes." Ed. Jourkal.
