the expectation that he would be. at lea«t.
partially sober in the morning and fit to
discharge. The surprise came when they
found him at daylight drunker than he
was the night before. The secret was dis
covered a lew days ago. His wooden leg
was holiow and capable ol holding a com
siderable supply of whiskey. In his soli,

Andrew Stinson, of Beaver Falls, left
home in company with Nick Welsh, for the
purpose of going to Pittsburg. The young
men boarded a freight train and at a point
near Conway. Stiti-on attempted to walk
over an ore car. In the center of the car
was an opening, through which the un
fortionate young man fell. That he was
not ground to pieces, seem# almost mirac

his right leg was crushed and terribly
mangled below the knee.
The New Castle papers have a queer re
minder of the vociferous and halcyon days
of special legislation, before the present
State constitution was adopted, when al
most every bill that passed the Legisla
ture concealed a job of some kind or other.
It is in regard to one of these acts of spe
cial legislation that legal notice is not
given that the present Legislature will be
asked to repeal an act, so iar as it relates
to Lawrence county, entitled "An Act to
reduce the expenses of collecting State and
county taxes in the county of Venango:
to incorporate the Greenville and Ohio
State Line Plank Road Co., and authorize
the appointment of an auctioneer in the
county of Lawrence." approved the third
day of April in the year of oar Lord 1851.
which wa> extended to the counties of
Crawford and Lawrence by an act entitled
"An Ac* relative to the collection of taxes
in Crawford and Lawrence counties: to
authorize the Commissioners of Erie coun
ty to borrow money: relative to a State
road in Crawford county; extending the
time for completing the works of the Cen
treville Water Co. and relative to the
Justices of the Peace in Bedford county."
With some slight additions it would seem
the old-time legislators might have made
one act cover a whole sessions legislation.

A production of unusual raasru tuJe will
' be jriren at tfc? Armory Opera Hrns*. arrt
! Saturday Lineola J. Carter* *u
perb scenic melodrama -The Fml Mail.
A* it? name indicates, it deal* largely with
the rail mad in its incident.-. bat it present*
an abandar.ee ot effects that are daric? a
j their magnitude and admirable in their ex
ecution. The steamboat is said to be i
wonder of clever conception and ma t.-r!r
mecbancical work, and the railroad scene,
with its trains poing at a terrific rate of
speed, makes the stag® teem like a piece
of reality. The Niagara Kalis scene is
wonderfally beautiful, and it may safely
be said is more elaborate than any
thing of the kind ever before attempted in
this city.—There are a multitude of minor
effects that contribute to make the per
formance a revelation of realism. The
whistles, bells and are heard as
the boat leaves the wharf. The sounds
that tell as of an approaching train herald
the approach of the freight and the fast
mail train —the latter rushing by with
people ?a?:ne from the wiadow at the he
roine who has just saved her lover's life
by fastening a letter to the mail pouch.
The roaring of Niagara FalN is heard, and
the mist that rises from it is showu vividly.
The play is under the personal direction of
L J. Carter, the author. The cast is .«aid
to be a capable one. The play is startling
at times in the intensity of its climaxes,
and these, when presented with all the ef
fects of the intricate stage setting-, bring
the interest to a degree that is rarely at
tained even in the melodrama. A large
number of people are employed in the;
production, which is in many particular* j
plainly the result of care and skill com !
