Tee New MILL.--It is said that the first
grist mill ever erected in this State is yet in
existence. It is a quaint old building, and ;
bears data about 1680. It is situated on a
small stream near Germantown, and some of,
•the machinery imported from En gland is still
retained in the mill. This would make a, fun.
.tty appearance contrasted with the beautiful •
building lately erected is this place by Messrs.
Fisher it MeMurtrie, on the site of the old mill.
We made a visit to this improvement last Sat.
urdity ; examined the building, machinery, &c.
have room only for a brief description.—
The building is of brick, three stories high, and
'put up in a substantial and excellent manner.
The machinery is all of the latest and most
improved patterns, and so far as tested, works
'admirably. We examined the work done, and
unhesitatingly pronounce it unsurpassed by
.any other mill in the Commonwealth. This is
an improvement long needed in this place, and
tho enterprising gentlemen who have seen ou r
want in this line and supplied it, deserve the
universal thanks of the community. The mill
has been erected in the short space of six
months, and when entirely completed will com
pere favorably with any other in the State ; it
having been the aim and object of the proprie•
tors to make it a perfect model, without regard
to trouble or expense. And we believe every
one who examines the same will acknowledge
they have succeeded beyond the most sanguine
expectations. Farmers and others no longer
will be under the necessity of waiting and wiii
tins fur their grid!, hut ran have it at an hour's
notice. Take it all in all, we look upon this
improvement as the most beneficial and uni.
sersally needed to the town and surrounding
, chuntr_y that we.cau name, and as inlets, we
deem tut.right and proper that we should in•
nlulge in a jubrate item, over its approaching
Completion. The railroads and canals benefit
m id vastly, but an improvement calculated to im
prove anti cheapen the "emir of life," is of is
calculable adeautage.

the truth of this—plaiu and undnbitable. We
khan notice this further hereafter. In the
mean time compare the "sow and the litter.'
You all kuow Lewis, (if you don't, read the
article on the 4th page, and you will) and as
"like begets like,' you may judge whether the
litter is improved stock. But' Barr—poor fel

Whig says of him :
"When friend BARR of the Huntingdon
American forks over the amount due as for
"checking" him home from Philadelphia, it

were first divulged to the shepherds' listening

have echoed and reaoheed until the whole world
is filled with the wondrous sound. While wo

NATURALIZATIUN.—The number of natural

a mixture which approaches something akin to
Wm. Lewis' heart. We have been in the habit
of sending our "circulars," to advertisers, with

this gentleman, magnanimous us he is, sued us
for the same—done it to get up a counter-cur.
rent, to shield himself from the honest indigna
tion of the people of this place. We were un.
der the belief that we were permitted this li
berty "according to law," and knew no better
until the editor of the Globe sued. Well, we
forgive him his petty attempts to injure us, well
knowing that "Shame is lost when all virtue is
lost." Wo would not have sorb a heart in our
bosom for the dignity of the whole world.
DREADFUL MURDER 1 -It becomes our pain
ful duty to announce the death of that old and
respectable citizen of this place, Mr. 11. og, by
the most dreadful means imaginable. His
throat was cut from "car to ear,' by a butcher.
knife, in the hands of an individual, (whose
name we withhold for the present) on Wednes
day last. This was one of the most unprovoked
and bloody deeds on record. The victim was a
peaceable citizen; quiet and retiring, and be
loved by a large circle offrien4.l and acquain•
tasters. He gave no cause for the bloody deed;
the perpetr..tor of which is still at large. His
remains were consigned to the "family vault,"
on 'Thursday, where we presume they will re•
main in pick/a until ready for the smoke (not of
the infernal regions) but of the smoke-house.
SeV" Wm. Lewis, the editor of the Globe,
says, Mr. Gahm denies having said that Snare
took all the printed mailable packages in his
post ace, according to Lewis' order, and that
we lied. The galled jade winces. We dop't
believe Mr. Gillnm ever said so. For we have
witnesses, good and reliable, who will be quail•
fled any day or minute, that, Mr. Gillam used
these precise words :—"Mr. Snare took all the
printed mil matter in the office, except, I be•
Neve, a bundle of extra American." This we
are reedy to arm before any Justice, and this
we can prove by those witnesses who were pro.
sent when the expression was used.
