The A than tee war is reported as at

as indemnity, ttd the delivering of all

The Southern people are advancing
in civilization, as is illustrated by the
refusal of their chief representative,
Jefferson Davis, to fight a duel.
The National Grange of Husbandry
were in session at St. Louis last week.
All the State were tepresentcd except

A FRIEND gave Fra .k Cowan a bot

A rn!t.AHEl.PttlA paper of the Gth

svlvania, and Dr. T. H. Andre as, also
of the first named institution, who, in
company with a few other gentlemen of
the uicdical t rofession, composed the
representatives of the commission of
Philadelphia physiciaus to make an au- J
topsy of the bodies of the deceased j
Siamese twins, (bang and Eng, and
who journeyed to their late residence I
Mou.-.t Airv. North Caroliua. returned .
boms yesterday afternoon. As a re
sult of their labors the doctors sn-
nounoed that for want of sufficient ac-'
commoditions, and the forward state of
decomposition of the bodies, it was im
possible to make the dcsiied examina
tion, aud that to make a thorough au
topsy it became neci.-sary to subject
them to the process of eabalmin.
A consultation was beld with the
widows of the tains and their consent
obtained to allow tbe bodies to be
brought to this city for the purpose ot
solving the mystery of that link which
held these two beings so closely. An
agreement was drawn up between the
ladies and the doctors, the purport of
which was to the e.Tect that the physi
cians will be beld severally responsible
for the safety of the bodies aud their
proper interment, and that no unneces
sary mutilation of the same be allowed.
Tbe bodies of Chang and Eng ar
rived in this city late last bight, and
were conveyed to the CoIIeege of Physi
cians, at Thirteenth aud Locust streets.
They will remain there for a few days,
until the embalming fluids bave perme
ated the veins of tbe bodies, and ren
dered decomposition almost impossible.
The Everett Press (Bedford county)
of tbe 5th inst. says : From street ru
mors told by persons who bad been iu
Bedford aud reported by others, we get
the following particulars of tbe most
daring robbery ever perpetrated in this
couuty. Mr. Hugh 15. V.'erti, a bach
elor and Sell-to do farmer, with his
ti;aiden sister, is livii g on a Cue prop
erty about two miles from Mann's
Choice. On Saturday evening, shortlj
after dark, they were startled by foot
steps ou the porch, and almost imme
diately thereafter four persons came
into the room. Mr. Wertx noticed that
the leader had a club, and almost iu
ctantly received a blow over the bead.
The blow was not enough to strike bim
senselesx, aud comprehending the situ
ation be at once grappled with bis an
tagonist, wrenched the club from him,
ll-directod blow, sent
and, with we
bim over the stov. The three titers
cama to the rescuo of their companion
and in a short time overpowered Mr.
Mr. Wertz, and bound hitu and his sis
ter, when they at once communced ran
sacking the house.
They Lad satchels and deposited ev
erything of value that thev could find
iu them. Iu the strugglu .Mr. Werta
saw that they were white men with onij
their facts and hands blackened. After
they left the house, Miss Wertz, man
aged to get loose aud at once loosened
her brother, and both started for a
neighbor's house, but were sera by the
robbers, driven back to the house and
agiin bound. On loosening thetnlvcs
the second time, they succeedcj in
giving the alarm, but nothing could
be f'.uud of the perpetrators of the
deed. About $2000 in gold, river
and Government loi.Js were taken.
Four men on three horses are reported
to have been seen passing through Cen-
treville early on Sunday morning, and
three horses were stolen in Cumberland
valley on the same night. Y.o doubt
they were the same party on their way
to Cumberland. .Mr. V.'erti offers
three hundred dollars for their arrest,
TlIC Wilmington Commercial relates

Correspondence from Fort Defiance re
ports that the Navajo Indians and Mor

have killed three or four Nav.-.jies, and
the Indian are retaliating. Great
fears are enter'aiued of trouble next

date of Feb. 5th, as follows : At three
o'clock this morning fire was discovered
issuing from the grocery of Chris. Mchr,

The details show the sufferings of
the victims to have been horrible.
There were, when the fire broke out,
about ten persons in the bouse. Mrs.
Mchr seized two children aud rushed
through toe flames, and a boarder
seized another of tbe children. Mr.
Mehr rushed out, and seeing that some
of his children were missing, again rail
into the house, and was not again seen
alive. W hen found, he bad clasped iu
his arms three children wbo bad been
left behind, the four bodies being burned
almost to a ciuder. T'jese four were
the only persons burned to death. Most
of the others were more or less burned.
HUNTINGDON COI NTT, AS PES BCKT
On Thursday last, about ten o'clock,
the employees of tbe Huntingdon Car
Works run a truck containing a huge
oil tank into tbe shop for the purpose of
repairing the tank. Mr. Luden Long,
of this borough, got into the tank for
the purpose of repairing it. A lad ran
and bauded bim a red-bot rivet, which
ignited tbe gas in the tank, when an ex
plosion took place, knocking bim back
into the tank, and carrying away a large
portion of the roof of the car shop.
The men at work in the shop, seeing tbe
fire blazing np to thereof and the shops
in danger of being set on fire, ran and
pushed the truck out of the building on
to a siding, and rolled off tbe tank.
