heaven is at hand," etc.
—The verdict in a case tried week before last
was for the plaintiff for damages to the amount
of Jive cents. Six and a fourth cents damages
carries costs with it, but the attoruies we have

that the plaiutiff in this case will have to pay
the costs of the suit.

—The town has been divided into sections
and committees who will call upon the people

—The Etna Iron Works Company, of Sharps
burgh, are drilling a new well for gas on the
Samuel Anderson property, in Clinton town
ship, about halfa mile below the well on the
William Harvey farm. Some of the wells in
that section that have been supplying their
mills with fuel for some years, are failing and
the object is to increase the supply.
—The Water Works meu shut off the supply
from the Court House and jail last Saturday.
They claim that the coutract between the com
pany aud the couuty has expired and want
SSO more or $450 in all per year. This the
Commissioners refused to pay, and claim that
the old contract is yet in force. The matter
be,settled by the court.
—A large number of our citizens—probably
three hundred or more—got on the special ex
cursion funeral traiu ou the S. & A. Railroad,
last Sunday, and rode up to Mercer and back.
The train consisted of six cars aud by the time
it reached Mercer all the cars were crowded.
The cheapness of the ride—so cents for the
round trip—was the principal attraction,
though there were a few persons on the train
who really went for the purpose of attending
Judge McDermitt's funeral. For the rest it
was but a Sunday holiday excursion enjoyed
under rather'pecu'.iar circumstances.
—A man named James Williams was com
mitted to jail last Saturday, charged with the
late robbing of Rhodes «Sc Christy's store in
Sunbury. Williams aud another man have
lately been selling hardware very cheap in New
Brighton, Beaver county, and were arrested on
suspicion. Word was sent to Rhodes & Christy
of the arrest, and Mr. Christy went down ana
identified the hardware as being his aud Wil
liams was committed, but his partner, who had
a hearing on another case, before Mr. Christy
arrived in the town, was discharged.
—During the year 1834 the Agricultural de
partment of the Pittsburgh Weekly Commercial
Gazette will be of inestimable value to the
farmer aud husbandman. Mingled with this
farm news and notes he will get reliable politi
cal information, Republican reasoning and the
news of the world. For the familv there will
be the fashions, the household selections and
the best collection of miscellany possible to be
gathered into the space of a newspaper of com
manding size. Subscription price of the Com.
mercial Gazette is $1.25 per year.
—The Nation seems to be passing through
an epidemic of murder and suicide, aud several
dozen cases of each were reported in last week's
papers. The worst case of murder was that re
ported from Lacouia, N. H., where a man
named Salmon murdered his mistress, a mar
ried woman named Ford, cut her body to pieces
and put it in a trunk and wheeled it to his
boarding house, and being detected that night
in trying to dispose of it, murdered the family
he boarded with, piled their bodies on the floor,
put a mattress over them, soaked the mattress
with oil, set it ou fire and ran for his life. The
woman of the family, however, returned to
consciousness before the lire reached her aud
jumped out of a window and gave the alarm.
•Salmon was arrested.
—The beautiful, and in some respects fright
ful, sunset spectacle of last Tuesday evening,
was repeated iu a less striking form the follow
ing evening. On Tuesday evening the red glow
spread all over the western heavens, leadiug
some people in Butler to suppose that a great
fire was raging at Bald Ridge, and it did not
entirely disappear until nearly two hours after
the sun had set. The cause was undoubtedly in
the atmosphere, and astronomers suggest that it
might have been meteoric dust, as the earth
has lately passed through'the track of the No
vember meteors and most meteors are consum
ed a hundred miles or more above the surface
orf'the earth and the products of their combus
tion find their way slowlv down through the at
mosphere. It is not impossible, also, that the
earth, in its journey through space, sometimes
encounters meteoric matter which is already in
the condition of dust, and which slowly filters
down through the air. Whatever the cause
may be, there have certainly been some most
surprising atmospheric phenomena in the last
two or three months in several <|uarters of the
globe. India, Ceylon, and South America have
recently been treated to the spectacle of a green
sun and a green moon, and now iu more north
ern countries we are having the evening sKies
set allame with strange reflections. The in
habitants of the earth sometimes behold mar
vellous sights in their travels through the
universe under the guidance of the journeying
tun. *
—The glass works >n this town, started up
again last week and is using natural gas in its
furnace —8 jets, one under each pot. The pro
prietors are talking of drilling a well foritas,on
their own property. The firm of Richards <Sc
Hartley, proprietors of the Pride street glass
work in Pittsburgh, have obtained a good gas
well on their property near Tarentum, and
propose moving their glass works to that point.
The use of natural gits in manufacturing gla-s
promises to revolutionize the business and give
the manufacturers of the western part of this
State an immense tdvantage over the
eastern manufacturers. Richards <fc Hartley
expect to save from $->,OOO to *IO,OOO a year.
An "average factory now consumes from 200 to
400 bushels of coal daily, ami employs two
teezers, each of whom are paid about $lB a
week, an expense which would be avoided
where the natural gas is utilized."
—The counsel for the prosecution in the
case of the Commonwealth versus John
Snyth Esq. asked, in court last Monday after
noon, that the bail of the Esq. be forfeited on
account of his not appearing that day. This
the court refused,, but upon application of his
bail, awarded a process for him This was
put in Sheriff Donaghy's hands, who imme
diately drove up to the Esquire's home iu
Cherry township, and there found him sick
in bed. The Sheriff stayed there all night, and
came home nest day with an affidavit signed
by Drs. Washabaugh and DeVVolf, setting
forth that the Esquire was not in a fit condi
tion physically to be removed from his bed,
and that such removal at present might be at
the risk of his life. This return was deemed
unsatisfactory by the court. Esq. Smith and
his bail were called and their recognizances
forfeited aud respited till this morning, and
another process put in the hands of the Sheriff,
who, with the bail, immediately started for the
home of Esq. Smith to bring him to Butler.
—The celebration of "Evaluation Day" at
New York city, on Monday of last week, closed
the centennial celebrations of the important
events of revolutionary times. The celebra
tions of these events have been a remarkable
series of commemorations. They began with
the observance in Philadelphia, on the oth ol
September, 1874, of the centenary of the assem
bly ol the Continental Congress, and they end
with that of the evacuation of Xew York, on
the ('2sth) 26th. of November, 1883. Their cul
mination was naturally that of the central event
of the Revolution, the Declaration of Inde
pendence. During this long period the Revo
lutionary story ha* been told and retold in a
manner deeply to impress it upon the national
mind and memory, and the tiual result is un
questionably a more vivid and adequate knowl
edge of the national history. It is one of the
great good fortunes of the country that the cen
tennial season did not occur until the civil war
had ended, and the national Union had endured
successfully the prolonged and vital test of its
character and power. The war is already merely
one of the incidents of our story—an incident
which will soon have left no baleful conse
quence. There are, however, two more events
belonging to the period immediately following
the war for independence whose cdutennial an
niversaries will doubtless excite very general
interest. They are the adoptiou of the Federal
Constitution and the inauguration of the Gov
ernment under Washington. There may be
some difference of opinion as to the dates when
these events should be celebrated. The
National Convention which framed the Consti
tution finished its work and signed the instru
ment on Sept. 17, 1787. But it was not to be
come valid till it had been ratified by nine
States. The ninth State happened to be New
Hampshire, which accepted it on June 21, 1788.
Which day will be selected for the grand cele
bration It was provided that the Government
under the Constitution should commence on
March -1. 1789. A Senate and House of Repre
sentatives were chosen, and Gen. Washington
was elected to the Presidency in the previous
winter months. liut, owing to various causes,
Washington did not take the oath of ofiice till
April 3u, 1789, when the new Gevernment went
into full operation. Will March 4, or April
tO, 1889 be taken as the proper day for the
celebration ?
The fine steel engraving of Rothermel's cele
brated picture of the battle of Gettysburg, pur
:hascd by N. P. Reed and brothers, of the Com
mercial Gazette of Pittsburgh, will be formally
presented to the "Grand Army Post," at the
i'ourt House, in llutler, on Thursday evening,
December The presentation speech will be
made by Col. John M.Thompson. The picture
will be received on behalf of the Post*by the
Post Commander, and an address will be deliv
;red by Capt. G. W. Fleeger on "the campaign
)f Gettysburg." The fact that Capt. Fleeger
was- present and participated in the battle is
sufficient guarantee of a rare treat on that occa
sion. The proceedings will be interspersed
with old army songs by the G. A. R. All old
soldiers, whether they belong to the Grand
\riuy or not, are expected to "fall into line,"
ind the citizens generally are invited to onie

1 1
While a young man named Kennedy was
1 passing along the Kittanning road, near Judge
: Mitchell's place, hist Wednesday evening, after
! dark, his attention was directed to a whitish
' colored object lying at the ide of the road
' down an embankment. Stepping into the
• I house of Joseph Baldauf, nearby, lie obtained
1 | a light and he and Baldauf, and Samuel Mit
' ! chell and another man who happened to be
1 passing examined the premises, and discovered
; J not only a horse, which is of a light gray color
| aud which Kennedy had first noticed, but also
| an overturned wagon and two dead bodies lying
in the gutter at the foot of the embankment.
1 | The bodies were recognized as those of Harry
■ ! Costly, of Clearfield township, and his mother,
i Mrs. Costly, who for some time has been living
in the little shanty back of t hris. Stock's tin
I store, in Butler, and who has lee i supporting
| herselt by washing. On the giound near them
I was found material for a Thanksgiving dinner,
I some candies, etc. There were no bruises up >u j
j their persons excepting slight ones upon his I
face and her band, and no bones broken, but
f the physicians called to the inquest discovered
I evidences of internal injuries which caused
their death. Mr. Kennedy caine to Butler and
notified Esq. Keek, who, with Drs. Pillow and
Graham ami some others, went to the spot
where the bodies were lying and held an in
quest. The bodies were then removed to Mr.
Baldauf's andpiext morning taken to Costly's
I home, in Clearfield township. The horse,
I which was lying at the foot of the embank
i in en t, tangled in the harness and unable to i
| move was released. It had evidently turned
j from the main road into the side road leading
| to Samuel Mitchell's, and Cosily, discovering
the mistake, had tried to make a turn while on
the embankment, thus precipitating the whole
party over it. Mr. Costly had, with his mother,
started from Butler for his home in Clearfield
township about dusk, and the accident must
have happened between six and seven o'clock,
as their bodies weie discovered about seven.
He is said to have been drinking that afternoon
aud a bottle containing whisky was fouud on
his person, after (lie accident. It was not
broken. Mr. an I Mrs. Costly, the old couple,
resided ou the Duffy farm in Clearfield town
ship, until about one year ago, when Costly de
serted her. since which time she has been living
in Butler. They were very poor people and
the expenses of the funeral will likely have to
be paid by the township. Mr. Costly was a
married man about 36 years of age and leaves a
wife and five small children behind him.
