IQ In answer to the many inquiries rel
ative to fishing with nets in Big Fishing
creek and its tributaries, we would state that
we passed an Act through the House last
winter, near the close of the session, pro
hibiting the fishing with all "kinds of nets in
said stream, but on account of its lateness,
and the rush of bill in the Senate, it wa3
not reached, consequently did not become a
Never within our recollection has
there been so little uniformity in articles of
ladies dress. A lady can don a narrow or a
wide brimmed Tiat' a bonnet, shawl, coat,
cape or dres3, of almost anj' shape, cut or
figure, and it will be considered as one of the
different stylet, and not commented upon for
not following the one prevailing fashion.
Certainly the ladies have a fine opportunity
to please themselves in articles of drtsss.

try, we observed that the fruit trees oa every
farm were heavily burdened with caterpil
lars, and we would, suggest that their imme
diate destruction demands the direct atten

"With a little attention now they can easily
'be found und destroyed, and we beg of every
possessor tf & fruit tree to wage a war of
' extermination pon the pests without delay.

trolled the election of officers at the Agri

The rush still continues at Millers'
Store. This old and well known establish

tronage, and now, more than ever, is prepared
to accommodate all with every article of

and "Ike," are loved by the young ladies,
and well liked by every body else. Who

25"" On last Saturday afternoon we had
the pleasure of witnessing a match of
the Bloomsburg Base Ball Club. The club
is composed of some of our most athletic
young men, who go earnestly into the con
test for victory. The only ill-features of the
came, wiiicn we noticed, were tnese: one
man went home with his lower garments
badly torn and another with his eye badly.
blackened, the Iasacaused by an accidental
stroke of the ball.
Yesterday morning we were surprised to
see the people rushing up street in unaccus
tomed haste and earnestness ; and upon in-
quiry as to t be cause, we were pleased to
. a w
learn that a fresh supply of goods and gro
ceries at A. llartman s store was attracting
the people and tempting them to buy. The
inhabitants of the town know this fact, and
the people from the country are invited to
call and accommodate themselves with choice
goods and large bargains.
BSy We advise the peace officers of this
town to be a little more strict in the perform
ance of their duties and save their fines. It
is rumored among decent people that we
have, of late, land too much profanity, loud
quarreling, black-guarding, and causeless
fighting, on our streets to be longer tolerated.
It is a disgrace that all this should be done
under the very eyes of the officers of the
law. Let it be remembered that the Dis-
unioni.sts elect the peace officers of this town.
Creditable, isn't it

B3- Hon. Levi L. Tate and R II. Little,
Fq., with their wives and little son, started
yesterday morning on a fihing excursion to
the head-waters of Big Fishinjrcreek. The
uncommonly cold weather at this time may
render their journey less cheerful than usual,
but as they expect to be gone several days
we hope they will be favored with some
warm and pleasant weather, and about eight
peck3 of fish, ere they return. "We don't
want any body to envy our situation, as Mr.
Tate and Mr. Little are our near neighbors
and they both know very well that we like
fresh fish. Our pans and our thanks are
ready for the scaly animals, but we won't let
any body know how bad we want them. No

Woman Shot. On last Saturday a trag
edy was enacted in Frederick county, Md.,
across the Tountain, ia lie neighborhood of
Bolivar, the particulars of which, as near as
we could get them, are these :
Daniel Shoemaker, who is a married man
with a family, has been in the habit of ma
king private visits at th.3 house of a widow
lady named Mrs. Schilduknecht, for the pur
pose of meeting her daughter. On the
night in question, Shoemaker had made an
appointment to meet the girl at the usual
trysting place, and after dark concealed him
self in the yard, near the house, to await
her arrival. In the meantime the mother
had discovered the illicit intercours3 held be
tween them, and that they were to meet that
night. She arrayed herself in the clothing
of her daughter, and at the appointed time
went out to meet him. Not suspecting any
deception, Shoemaker came from his con
cealment, and met the mother of his victim
instead of the young girl. Reproaches were
hurled at the vile seducer of her daughter's
reputation which so exasperated him, that
he drew a revolver, and fired three shots at
her, one of which took effect inflicting a se
rious, if not fatal wound. The seducer and
would be murderer fled immediately, but
has since been arrested ttnd confined in the
Frederick County prison. Odd Fellow.
Bold Robbery. On Thursday night, as
Mr. John Lydon, of Wilkesbarre, was pass
ing along Thompson street, near German-
town avenue, on his way from the North
Pennsylvania Railroad Depot, he was way
laid by three men, one of whom held his
hands behind his back while another placed
a handkerchief over his mouth by which he
was prevented from giving the alarm. The
third party then robbed him of his wallet
containing upwards of eleven hundred dol
lars. The robbers after committing the act
made their escape. Age.
