SHERIFF HOFFMAN took nine pris oners to the penitentiary ami workhouse last Thursday afternoon. Previous to going, how ever, they had a hearing before Esquire Muntz.

The new trial was granted because the plaintiff, immediately after the verdict had be.-n rendered, dined eleven of the jurors at the St. Charles hotel. SPRING bulbs, such as Hyacinths, Tulips, Croons, etc., are now offered for sale by most of our seedsmen.

EVERY reader of this paper, who receives his CITIZEN regularly each week free of postage, owes a debt of debt of gratitude to the memorv of the late Sir Rowland Hill, who died in Ifampstead, England, August 27th, njed eighty-four. It i« to the efforts of Mr. Ilill, that in 1830 the reduction in postage rates, the abolition of the grosslv unjust franking privileges, and other postal reforms were in augurated. The results of his efforts are en joyed bv the civilized world to-day. Perhaps we cannot better realize just what our postal facilities a",- thau by attempting to picture to ourselves the year 1879 without them. HATS, Caps and Gents' Furnishing Goods, at Charles R. Gricb's. A wifiTER in Atlantic for October next tries to make out that "Foreign trade (is) no cure for hard times." His argument is that in competing with European and Asiatic man ufactnrcrs and producers, for foreign trade, we impoverish our mechanics and laboring people (by forcing them to take as low wages as ore paid in those countries), and that thereby we destroy home trade. He suggests no remedy, but we suppose he means an export tax 011 both manufactures and produce. There issome sense in the idea of putting an export tax on raw-cotton, grain, and other articles, its it would force the entire manufacture of those articles at home, but an export tax 011 manu factured articles, means a decrease in the num ber of your customers. A decrease in the number of your customers means a decrease in jiiices. and that means a decrease iu wages. WILLIAM ALAND, Merchant Tailor, has just opened the largest line of woolens for men and boys wear ever offered in Butler. THE abortive attempts to regulato freights by joint action have recentlv led the railroads to try a new experiment. They have jointly appointed a commission of arbitration, consisting of experts, who are to study railroad questions and adjudicate differences which may arise between the roads. The gentlemen selected are Charles Francis Adams, Jr., David A. Wells aud Johu A. Wright, who aru to recoive liberal salaries and surrender their timeto the subjects which may from time to time be submitted to them. It is understood that in controversies between the roads their decisions are to he final. This arrangement points in the right direction, aud is very well so far as it goes. But how are these experts to enforce their awards ? If the roads should prove as faithless to this engage ment as they have been to their compacts on the subjects of freight, it is difficult to see how in the absence of law, they can have any remedy against one another. The idea of a commission is excellent; but it should bo a commission created by law and clothed with authority. In England there is such a com mission appointed by the Government and in vested with adequate powers to make its action and its decisions legally binding—a commission which not merely protects the railroads against each other, but protects the public against unjust discrimination by the roads. We believe the time has come when Congress must take this subject iu hand in a spirit of equity toward all parties concerned. BEFORE ordering your wintor cloth ing call at J. it G. F.

Fall of Plankroad Bridge—Four Men Badly Hurt. ! About four o'clock last Wednesday afternoon | a part of the bridge over the creek at this place, known as the Plankroad bridge, at the | South end of Main street, fell to the ground, a ' distance of about sixteen feet. The part fall * iug, eight spans, was constructed entirely of | wood, with wooden trestles for supj>ort, and was beim* repaired. Ex-Sheriff Abraham Me ! Caudleas had the job of repairing, and with J three of his sons, were on the part tailing at the time. It seems the timbers and plank at 1 this end were being removed from the stone | abutment, and being free from any brace by l the same, it is supposed the jarring caused by the throwing off of the heavy old sills, and the | pressure upon the wooden trestles, caused them to waver and fall, tiie whole eight spans drop ping down in a body. Upon these spans at work were ex-Sheriff Abraham MeCaudless, and his sons George, Abraham, Jr., and Howard. They are all more or less injured, supposed to be caused by the clash and rebouuding of the planks trorn the sills and trestles when ail struck the ground. The ex-Sheriff himself is the most injured, having both arms broken, one of them literally smashed at the elbow, and both legs badly bruised about the knees, one knee cap bone being cut in two, which perhaps is as danger ous and painful a wound as lie has received. He is now near sixty-five years of age, and has been a successful bridge builder, building more wooden bridges perhaps than any man in the county. Much sympathy is expressed in this misfortune in his declining yean. He, with his son George, are laying at the house of bis son Martin, in this place, and every care is being taken of them. George has a severe wound on liis forehead, one of his feet hurt, and complains of injuries and pains in his side, back and body generally. He is not, however, supposed dangerously hurt. Abraham, Jr., has one foot badly hurt, supposed to have l*en caught between the planks, on the rebounding of the planks, as many of the other injuries are supi>osed to have occurred. His back is also sprained and very sore, but if his foot gets along it U supposed he is in uo danger. How ard, the youngest son, is the least hurt, but has one foot also much brnised and other slight injuries. He is now upon his feet, at the house of his brother Abraham, and is moving about, while the other three are still confined to their beds and may be for some time. Our singular part of the occurrence is, that a team of horses and a colt, belonging to Mr. McCandless, were upou the bridge at the time and were not very badly hurt, having appa rently maintained their feet during the fail. The result of this serious accident will doubt less cause a different and better structure to take the place of the old one. The wooden trestles should at least be replaced with stone piers. Had they been stone no accident could have happened. The unsteady foundations of the wootlen ones caused all the eight spans to coine down together, whereas, if the supports had been stone piers but one span could have fallen. Besides, the time would seem to have arrived for dispensing with this high trestle work, is dangerous at best. Fears have been entertained of this bridge for years past, and we hope to see it repaired with stone pier*, or with an iron one, if possible. We omitted itvabove to state that Mr. Mar tin J. Reiber, of this place, who was standing near at the time, was struck by a timber and had two ribs broken. Mr. George Mcl'andless, brother of ex-Sheriff, was working on the bridge but was near enough the abutment to spring off and thus escaped uninjured. *At l»l, New stylos Cloth Street Hats, at IIITTER & RALSTON'S.

GRAND JCIIY PRESENTMENT. To the Honorable Jiulyrx of the Court of Quar. t'T Seuion* of the Peace of Holler County : We, the grand inquest in anil for the said county of Butler, made an examination of the countv jail and found everything inside in good Condition. The outside of the front and the doors, windows, cornice and fence in front need to be painted badly. We would, therefore, present, and request that your honorable body instruct the Commissioners of the county to have the jail painted in front, and have the windows tightened up, and also that they have the old privy vault removed and a uew one built. We also visited the various offices in the Court House anil found them in good condition, except the back room of the Commissioners' office, which was very dusty and needs cleaning up.

Colored Camp Meeting. There is a colored camp meeting being held near Pros[>ect, in Wolford's grove, about a quarter of a mile south of the town. It began on Friday last, and will continue a week or more. On Sunday last, we, with others, paid a visit to the grove, and found in the after noon a large crowd in attendence. At one o'clock the exercises were opened with singing and prayer, the choir composed of about a dozen line singers, with organ acconipaninent. After which a very interesting sermon was preached by Rev. 15. W. Thomas, of Fisk Uni versity, located at Nashville, Tennessee. His text was, "Behold there came a leper and worshiped him, saying Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean." The next sermon was preached by Rev. Whiting, of Mansfield, Pa. This gentleman gave his hearers a well digested sermon, and at times eloquent as well as interesting. He is a good orator, voice strong and clear. This with prayer ami several beautiful hymns and jubilee songs by the choir ended the afternoon exer cises. On Monday aud Tuesday nights, the party gave concerts in the M. L. Church, in Prospect. We care not what may be said of worship in the woods, it is certainly pleasant on a fine day to spend a few hours in this manner—out am.ng the forest trees, their tall heads uplifted to heaven as if pointing with Natures own finger, up to Nature's God. These niiiiistrela are certainly first-class sing ers. There was a policeman on the grounds, but his services were not needed, for a quieter, more attentive audience could not lie found anywhere. We noticed that Mr. Kelso, proprietor of the hotel on corner of Franklin and Butler streets, was doing a wholesale business in furnishing the hungry with something good to cat; and he well deserves the name of a prince in the hotel business.
