TIIE remains of John Howard Payne,
the authcr of "Home, Sweet Home,"
have been brought to his own country
for interment. He died recently in
Europe. His verses, "Home, Sweet
Home," are regarded asthemost tender
and beautiful in the English language.
TUE resolution offered ia the Legis
lature, providing for. the changing of
moving day and renting day from the
Ist of April to the Ist of May, did not
meet with perhaps as much considera
tion as it should have received. A time
later, say three weeks, than the Ist of
April, wonld certainly give better
weather for moving aud be in time for
farm and garden work.
A TERRIFIC explosion occurred at
Westminister palace, London on Fri
day week la.st, and at the same time an
explosion occurred near the London
Times building. The first shattered
the windows and doors in the imme
diate vicinity of the place where the
explosion occurred, and the damage in
flicted is estimated at $25,000. The
explosion near the Times ollicc did no
damage. Dyuamite was used, and the
London papers charge that the whole
affair is the beginning of an effort to
terrorize the English people by a secret
organization of Irish agitators in order
to force concessions by Parliament to
the Irish party.
IT is to be hoped the sad .accident
happening to our Senator at Harrisburg
last week will not impair his useful
ness to his constituents or to the State-
For a time he may have one "finger'
less in any legislation before the Sen
ate, but that will be the only loss.
Prize fighting is a manly art, but when
practiced, or imitated, among our Sen
ators, they should be equally sized.
The "overgrown boy from Bntler"
should not have selected "one of the
diminutive Senators" to experiment
The following is the account of the
accident aB given in the Harrisburg
Teleyraph :
"Senator Greer, of Butler, was
sportively imitating the battle between
McKnight and Emery, with one of the
diminutive Senators, the smallest now
in the chamber, when he dislocated his
finger so badly that a physician's ser
vices were uecessary. The queer oc
currence occasioned an infinite amount
of fun."
To which the Pittsburgh Commer
cial Oazetle, in referring to the matter,
adds the following : "What is to be
come of the dignity of the State Senate
if the application of Emery ruflles the
temper instead of smoothing the rough
places in legislative life? And how
unfortunate that another Senator in
playing boyish antics and making
mockery of his brethren of that House
should break his finger instead of his
leg. His neck could not well be spared.
Another such a day would make the
institution about ready to fence in, roof
over, and exclude it as much as possible
from public observation."
To Henry Bruncrmcr, of Connoque
nessing township, wo return thanks for
a copy of the DemocraticJlerald, of
date of December 20, 184.'», sent us in
response to our request of last week.
It contains the "Trial of Samuel Mo
hawk," at December term of Court,
1843, and from this it would appear
the execution of Mohawk must have
been in tho year 1814, and not in 18 45,
as stated last week. If Mr. Brunermcr,
or any other person in or out of this
county, can scud us an old Jlerald with
the execution of Mohawk in, or con
taining a.i article from Rev. Jlasxlf.r
on Mohan;!:, wo will be greatly obliged.
It must have been published iu the
winter or spring of 1844, as the exe
cution took place about then.
Patent Issued.
The land department at Harrisburg
last week issued a patent for some 30
acres of land to the heirs of the late
William I'urviauee, Esq., deceased, of
this county. This land lays in the
Bald Uidgu oil district and is supposed
to be quite valuable at present for oil.
Two good producing wells are already
in operation upon it. It appears
Mr. William Purviance obtained a war
rant for the land in 183H, but never had
his title conipleti d by a patent, which
is now issued to itis heirs on their ap
plication. The application excited
much interest and opposition from
other parties now claiming oil rights
through other parties. Hut if these
heirs are justly entitled to this land
they should have it, and will have it.
M iss Dott Purviance, one of the heirs,
has shown gn at pluck and success in
prosecuting their claim, ar.d is highly
commended therefor. What effsci tho
patent will have on tho litigation now
pending in our Court as to this land we
cannot say. The Purviance heirs were
represented before the Hoard of Proper
ty by Senator Herr <t. Son, of Harris
burg, and the opposition to the patent
by Messrs. Thompson, It »binson and
Brandon, EMJS., and Simcox it Myers,
Phipps, Itcnfrcw and Dodds, parties
Congressional Districts.
Before the Legislature met we said
that the re-districting of the State into
new Congressional districts. as the : ;v\
requires, would be pcrhaps the most
difficult ta.-k at the present session.
Our prediction seems to be veriiied and
we think it now very doubtful if auv
bill is agreed upou. One reason is the
great number of Statesmen ambitious
to go to Congress, who naiura'.iy want
districts formed to suit them politically
One of our members of the llou.-e,
"Curie Jacob," seems to l)e iu this
clars. Iu fact from the below remarks
made bv him last week, when the bill
agreed upon by bis fellow Democratic
members was up, it would seem that
he has for a long time pas! had Con
gressional aspirations. Ibis bill places
or joins this county with Armstrong
and Indiana counties for a district. If
would be a Republican district and is
one of the few districts in that bill that
Republicans could not well object to-
But the Hon. Harry White lives iQ In
diana county, and as he is charged
with being a kind of standing candidate
for Congress, Uncle Jacob" does not
want to be in the same district with
him. So when this Democratic bill
came up our member is reported as
speaking as follows:
"Uncle Jake Ziegler, of Butler, made
a vigorous but ineffectual kick against
having his county put in Harry White's
district. 1L; closed the debate by say
ing 'I suppose I'll have to vote for the
bill, as the lessor of two evils. When
Butler was joined to Allegheny I was
iu Assyrian bondage; then I was sent
into Egyptian darkness, and now I am
to be banished into Babylonian captiv
ity by being joined to Indiana. Fll
vote for the bill, but iu the clasi-ic
words of Colonel Slote, "'Holy
Moses !' " A vote was then taken and
the House adjourned."
We regret that Uncle Jacob yields
any consent to this bill. In many of
its other features it is a clear gerry
mander, and we do not see bow the
Republicans of the Senate can ever
agree to it. Much as is the demand for
the passage of some bill in that matter,
yet we think the Republican Senate
should hold out for a more fair one
The bill offered by the Republicans in
the House joins our county with Mer
cer and Venango counties, which would
be a much more natural district. At
present it looks as if the bills re-district
ing for Judicial districts, and for Sen
ate districts, may be agreed upon and
passed, but as to the future Congress
districts there is evidently trouble
A Bold Thief.
On last Sunday week, 18th inst., Mr.
John Bortmess, who lives in Oaklaud
township, this county, about two miles
west of Millerstown, was the victim of
the arts of as bold and bad a thief as
has appeared in this county for some
time. A well dressed and genteel
looking gentleman visited that section
on Saturday, tho day previous. He
first stopped at the farm house of Mr.
Simon S. Reep, a neighbor to Mr.
Bortmess, and represented he was from
Mercer county, aud in tho search of a
couple of farms which he wished to
purchase. He showed a paper he had,
with the names of Mr. Reep and Mr.
Bortmess upou it, as persona desiring
to sell their farms. This looked like
business, and be soon closed a bargain
with Mr. Reep for the purchase of bis
farm, stock, etc., being in no ways
particular as to price, aud agreeing to
make payment on coming Ist of April,
when possession was to be given, etc.
He tben went to see Mr. Bortmess
was also pleased with his farm aud con
cluded a similar bargain for its pur
chase. While negotiating with Mr. B.
he asked to see his title papers, to show
him which Mr. B. bad to open a
bureau drawer. The scamp by this
means discovered where Mr. B. kept
his key, his money, etc. It is supposed
he saw some money that was iu the
drawer. It may be stated here that
Mr. B. is a widower and living alone.
Night coming on the purchaser of real
estate concluded to stay all night, aud
was permitted to do so. They retired
to bed. In the morning Mr. B got
up, leaving the purchaser of his farm
apparently asleep, and went to his barn
to feed his flocks. After being at the
barn for a short time his guest came
out to the barn also, and, after the
salutations of the morning, said to Mr.
B. he believed he would take a stroll
over the farm to see the most suitable
site to erect good buildings. He went
—and not returning for some time Mr.
B. began to get suspicious, but not un
til some time iu the afternoon did he
think of looking in his drawer, which,
when he did, ho found he was robbed
of his money, $25 in silver. No elue
has as yet been had of this adroit
rascal. If caught he should be hung.
His device and mode of obtaining ac
cess to the homes of honest farmers is
the latest and most dangerous that
could be designed. To ward off sus
picion for a time he left a light gray
overcoat in Mr. B.'s house before taking
his walk over tho farm. He is describ
ed as about 5 feet, 8 inches iu height,
with side whiskers and dark clothing.
Ho appeared to bo an educated man
and gaye his name as W. P. Warner.
His exploits are certainly a v:nrnin<j
to all.

Birth-Day Celebration.
On Wednesday March -21 st, ISB3, a
goodly number of the many friends of
Mr. WIN. Turner, of tLc Turner farm,

About one o'clock dinner was served
by the hostess and others, to which all
done honor to the many good things
set before them, and not until the sun
had set did the self-invited gmvts dis

pleasant time and wishing the boat

Franklin Twp. fcoliool No. 5.
EDS. CITIZEN :—As news is a very
scarce article in Franklin township just
now, I thought if you would be pleas
ed to publish a few notes relative to
old "Hickory Tomer," I woyld ?ive
the reading public a few statistics
which, no doubt, will draw the atten
tion of those connected with tt.is dis
trict. The winter term closed on
March 19th; and owing to the new
"departure" made by the directors, the
schools wiil not have thoir usual six
weeks' vacation, but will go on till the
six month terra expires, with a reduc
tion of only 35 per cent, of the #rjuter
wages. I wish to return my sincere
thanks to all parents, pupils and direc
tors for the courtesy they have shown
mo; and I hope I have, done nothing
to hinder anyone from feeling the same
to waul me.
AH teachers, »s well an parents, should
endeavor to instill into tne minds o»
all, a desire to become useful, and a
never-flinching disgust for idleness;
and though the seed may, for a while,
lie dorniaut in the youthful soul, let us
trust it will withstand the droughty
season of youth's indifference, aua tli-t
tjje showers of life's spring and the
sunshine of manhood's summer will
expand the bidden gei-ao into a sempi
ternal flower called "Usefulness."

The Bill Pa-ned With Ameiid
U.\uitisBi;ttu. March 21.—The <lc
feat of Ex Seuator Everhart's purpose

auce of free passes—wu« indicated by
the Senate's adoption of
| Cooper's ameudiu.iu to permit passes
to be issued fur charitable and benevo
lent purposes Le«j moved to strike
I out tin* word "benevolent." He held
; that this would enable tbe railroads to
; evade the law and give a to auy-
I body.
"It would give tbe Senator from
Delaware a chance to get a pass,
Id. hough he is not a proper
'subject for charity," said Stewart.
I'ooper smiled, and the smile grew
into chuckle when Lee's notion was
defeated by a vote of 22 nays and 16
yeas as follows:
YEAS —Adams, Agnew, Emery,
Longenecker, Sill, Stewart and Watres,

All tbe Senators not named iu the
above list were absent except Lee,
who was pared with Davies, and
Laird, who did not answer to his name.
Henninfrer, Democrat, although he had
voted to strike out "benevolent," now
spoke for Cooper's amendment.
"No Court," he said, "would so con
strue 'benevolent' as to include Legis
lators "
Stewart advised Henninger to study
the. mottling of the word in a good
dictionary. Stewart added that if
Cooper's amendment were adopted the
Legislature might as well not pass the
bill at all. He asserted that it was
Cooper's plain purpose to have the
free pa.-s system continued unchanged.
Stewart drew Irom Cooper the admis
sion that be, after fighting for tlje
amendment, would v >te against the
bill. He criticised Cooper (or misstat
ing facts in relation to the transporta
tion of troops during riots or war.
He ask' d Conner to give an instance
of the csrrviiir of troops without
charge. In reply Cooper mentioned
the riots of 1877, but Stewart said that
was for the protection of the railroad's
"And for the public good also," in
sisted Oor.pt:?,
"When was it donejn time of .var?"
asked Stewart.
"I said at half rates, not free," re
plied Cooper.
"Yes," said Stewart, "because the
railroad charter says so."
\fr. Wagupr t|ien amended the bill
so »s to require passes jested to officers
and employees to be tor tjiofap actually
in thu service <>f the company. This
was agreed to and the bill thus amend
ed passed third reading and was laid

In a SOLID GOLD WATCH, aside from
the necessary thickness for engraving anil
polishing, a large proportion of metal is
needed only to stiffen and hold the engrav
ed portions in place, and supply strength.
The surplus gold is actually needless. In
J amen Loss Patent Gold Watch Cases this
WASTE •is saved, and SOLIDITY and
STRENGTH increased by a simple process,
at one-half the cost. A plate of SOLID
GOLD is soldere*! on each side of a plate
of hard nickel composition metal, and the
three are then passed between polished
steel rollers. From this the cases, lacks,
centers, bezels, etc., are cut and shaped by
dies and formers. The gold is thick
enough to admit of all kinds of chasing,
engraving and engine turning. These
cases have been worn perfectly smooth by
use without removing the gold. This is
the only case iruiile vndcr this jtrocess. Lack
case is accompanied vith a talid guarantee
siijned by the manufacturers warranting it (a
vicar 20 years. 150,000 of these Cases
