Deatu of Col. W. A. Todd. Our
citizens were startled on Tuesday last, by
the news of the death of Col. William A.
Todd, of Indiana. The melancholy event
occurred at his residence, in that place,
on Sunday last, after a painful illness of
about two months. The deceased was a
lawyer by profession, and was a resident
practitioner at the Ebensburg Bar for
about two years. He left this place in
company with the Cambria Guards, asd
with them, rendered his country signal
service in the war with Mexico. After
peace was restored, ho returned to Indi
ana, the place of his nativity, where he
resumed the duties of his profession, and
continued in successful practice until
within a short period of his untimely
death. As a lawyer he had acquired an
enviable distinction ; as a soldier his brave
ry never quailed ; as a man, he had many
good qualities both of head and heart.
llis bereaved relations here, as well as in
Indiana, have the sympathies of the en

Tuesday evening, January 10th, by Rev.

this place, to Miss Harriet Thomas,

The "Weather, that fruitful subject
for localizers, has been rather out of gear
for some time past or in common par
lance, "slightly mixed." One would al
most imagine that the season of Indian
Summer, instead of that of old Boreas,
were here. The snow, under the genial
influence of the sun, has almost entirely
disappeared, and the umerrie jingle of ye
bells," as a consequence, is heard no more.
But from present indications, such a con
dition of things will not long continue.
Talking of sleighing, an editor out "West
