The Homicide in Gaysport. The
ETollidaysburg Standard gives the follow
ing account of the late murder of young
Crawford ; We regret to announce that
a terrible and distressing tragedy occurred
on Monday afternoon, (16th instant,) at
half-past one o'clock, at the store of D.
Watson & Co., in Gaysport. It was the
monthly day for settling with the hands,
and James Crawford, aged about seven
teen, and son of JMaj. Jesse R. Crawford,
of Gaysport, was engaged on the part of
Watson & Co., in settling with Nicholas
Eiley, one of the hands at the furnace of
the Blair Iron and Coal Company. Sonre
dispute took place about the correctness
of ouo of tho charges, when, as we arc iu
formtd, angry words passing, lliley struck
young Crawford in the stomach with
several blows of his fist, from the effects
of which he died in a few moments. His
body was removed across the street to the
residence of his father, where he had but
a 6hort time before left his mother and
sisters all unconscious of his fad fate.
The family are plunged in the deepest
distress, and we leel sure that they have
one and all the sincere sympathy of the
community. Major Crawford was absent
at the time, and was at once telegraphed
by the friends of the family.
lliley was immediately taken into cus
tody by Sheriff Uechtel, and, with the as
sistance of Constable Moorehousc, was
lodged in jail.
Coroner Weidensall held an inquest cm
tho body, and returned a verdict in ac
cordance with tho facts above stated.

Political Heminiscences. A few
days before the election, Win. A. Wal
lace, Chairman of tho Dem. State Cent.
Committee, promulgated an "Addresa,"
in tho course of which he was so kind as
to say : "Tho present and the future now
demand cf the Republican party that it
answer : 1st, Are you for or against Pres
ident Johnson's policy of reconstruction ;
2d, Are you for or against negro suffrage
and negro equality V The Republican
party has spoken. We would like to know
how Mister Wallace construes its answer
"for," or "against !"

Wednesday before the election, "you who

able newspaper, then a majority of 20,000
of the electors of Pennsylvania are in ia-
ver oi negro sunrage.
"If Harry White is elected State Sena

27th, "he will be in favor of striking out
tho word "whito" from our Constitution,
and will vote for a negro suffrage man to
represent U3 iu ihe Senate of the United
States." Tho voters of thi? district had
full and timely warning from the Dcmo-
ocratic pres3 that this would be the case,
and yet they ratified Harry White by a
majority of 1,539 !

on the 5th September, 1S65, iu the 85th
year of his age. 31 r. Allen was born in
England, but many years ago made his
home in this country, and during all these
years was known a a loyal, industrious

ber of years been a member of the M. E.

Attempt to Rreak Jail. Gore, the
murderer of Policauan Holmes of Johns
town, is kept ironed, as is generally known,
to guard against his escape from jail. On
Thursday of last week, the watchman of
that institution, while "going the grand
round-," discovered that the prisoner had
cut the hobbles environing his feet, pre
paratory doubtless to attempting to break
away, lie was immeaiateiy re-ircncd,
and more securely, and it is thought he is
now safe. Although a strict search was
nstituted thevefor, the hobbles Gore had
relieved himself of could not be found for
a long time, and it was feared some one
of the prisoner? had swallowed them; but
at length they were discovered in an ad-
oining cell, concealed under the bed.
The prisoners in the jail are a shrewd,
reckless set; strict watch must be kept
over them, or some cf these fine mornings
not one will be left to tell the tale of the
escape of the others.
Attempt to Throw the Train Off
the Track ! A 'diabolical attempt to
throw the train off the track on the Eb.
& Cresson Railroad W3S made ou Monday,
at a point a short distance north of Mun
ster. Several fence-rails were carefully
laid across the track, and rendered solid
and stationary by a large number of stones
piled on top. The 6-o'clock train ran
into the obstruction, but, although under
good headway, was not thrown from the
track, and no damage was done. No pun
ishment could be too severe for the wretch
who could thu3 trifle with" the'lives of a
car-load of passengers.

Mr. Andrew Johnson : Dear Sir In No
vember last I had a severe attack of Rheu
matism, to which I have not been subject for
nearly three years. The attack was so se
vere that I could not move my head nor raise
my arm. After trying different medicines in
vain, I was induced to U3e your rubdmatio
compound and blood pckifier, and before I
had taken three bottles I was so completely
cured that I could perform any duty to whicb
my country might call me. 1 can gladly and
confidently recommend it to my fellow
soldiers as the quickest and surest remedy I
ever used. Your true friend,

Mr. JonNsoN Dear Sir : This is to certi
fy that by using three-fourths of a bottle of
your RHEUMATIC COMPOUND and BLOOD

than eighteen years. It has been over tour
year3 since I was cured, and I have not felt
the slightest symptoms of its return.
I remain yours trulj,

M?. A. Johnson : Dear Sir My wife was
taken bad with Inflammatory Rheumatism in
March lait. She was very much swollen and
the pain she suffered -was severe ; she was
confined to her bed. I was advised to try
your Rheumatic Fluid and Blood Purifier, so
I got a bottle of it, and before the half of it
was used she was entirely well. The cure is
a perfect one ; I never saw such medicine.
She had only taken three doses of it when
the swelling and pain began to abate. All
your medicince wants is to be kuown in or
der to give it success. Yours affectionately,

Most cf the mixtures sold for coughs are

really do harm. The Imperial Cough Syrup

Mr. R. E. Sellers: On the lith ult., I

yet notwithstanding I had slept none the
night before my cough was so severe that I
could not sleep, neither could those in the
room with me. The person sleeping with
me was so much annoyed by my coughing
that he got up and went to a drug store, and
bought a bottle of your Cough Syrup, one dose
of which to my great astonishment, stopped
my cough as if by magic. I went to work in
the morning, and am now quite well.
