Ear On Tuesday night of last week
the dwelling house of Mr Thomas Fisher
of this place was entered by burglars, their
ingress was by a window which happen
ed to not be fastened.
A bold venture was made into the bed
roam, and while Mr. Fisher was enrap
tured in the enjoyment of morphius, the
villain or villians stole from him a gold
watch, which cost $l6O.
On the same night, and no doubt by the
same villians, the dwelling house of J. P.
Anderson Esq., was entered and a booty
of $2O in money carried off.
After the above operations the burglars
made good their escape.
Cutting Timber for Posts.
Tho American Agriculturist gives the
.following thiails of an experiment in set
ting posts, by E. Haines of N. J. Those
cut in June and Set green lasted fifteen
years and over, Those set dry lasted
only five. The time in which the dry
posts were cut is not stated. It was prob
ably in Spring before the leaves started.
We regard mid-Summer, as the best time
for posts The bottoms should be char
red upon the outside. They should in
the ground the top end downwards. The
charring should extend a little above the
surface of the ground.
ear A writer in the New York Times
recently intimated that Mr. Forney's Phil
adelphia Press is about to surrender its
opposition to the Lecompton policy of the
administration. This Mr. Forney indig
nantly denies. He says 'lt would afford
us great pleasure to agree with the gener
al administration on this Kansas question;
but this will never be, until the adminis
tration is true to itself, and to the pledges
upon which it was elevated to power.'

rienced here. The storm lasted about twenty
minutes, and after it had to all appearance
cleared up it was succeeded by the most ter
rific wind ever known in this section of the
State, the rain fell in torrents, and nearly
every house in Lexington was unroofed and a
number of them blown down. The passenger
traits from St. Louis, by which I send this, was
blown from the track and cars tipped over,
but, with, the exception of a few slight flesh
wounds, the passengers were uninjured. Be.
fore the train capsized all the car windows
on the windwurd side were blown out, the en.
gineer and fireman were both blown from the
engine, and a brakeman was also blown off
the cars. 'the storm struck the train a short

We learn from a passenger on the above
capsized trails that great damage was done by
the tornado itt the junction of the Peoria and
Oquaw•ka roads with the St. Louis Alton, and
Chicago railroads. Both station houses were
unroofed. five or six emty freight ears were
blown from the track, dwelling houses were
unroofed, moved bodily twenty or thirty feet,
or entirely demolished, and yet, amid all this
wide spread disaster, he could learn of no one
seriously injured.

Execution of a Murderer at Harrisburg.
HAIIIIISRURG, May 21.—William Williams,
convicted of ihe murder of John Hendricks, at
the upper end of this county is May last, was
executed to day in the prison yard. The oc
casion drew a large crowd of people to town,
and about seventy obtained admission into the
jail to witness the melancholy spectacle, among
whom was William A. Crabb, of Philadelphia,
who occupied a position close to the scaffold.
A large crowd was outside, and the roofs of
the houses oeorloohing the prison yard were
filled with people, anxious to witness the exe
cution. Some of these positions were rented
at fifty cents and a dollar each.
The prisoner was attended by the Rev.
Messrs. Bartine, Marty and Marquet.
The wife, three children, and sister of the
condemned visited the prisoner yesterday and
this morning. He exhibited but little feeling,
evincing a solid indifference.
The prisoner was brought out of his cell and
placed on the scaffold at ton minutes of twelve
o'clock, dressed in a shroud of white flannel,
and wearing a cap. He uttered not a word,
except simply to reply 'Yes,' when asked
whether the minister should pray for him.
A brief prayer was then made by Dr. Bar.
trine, after which an appropriate hymn was
The drop then fell and the prisoner was
launched into eternity.
The Kansas Election.
From the St. Lonix Democrat.
Information derived by us from private sour
ces, of the late Kansas election, is to the effec t
that the vote was very small, and that the op
position has very likely carried the Territory
against the Leavenworth Constitution. The
following letter, however, from a correspon
dent at Quindarn, looks tho other way :
A very small vote was polled here to day.
The State ticket 'received only about sixty
votes—the Constitution fifty three.
Two or three Slave Democrats drummed up
all the drunken Wyandotts they could, and by
making some believe they were voting against
Lecompton, and others that they were voting
against negroes, succeeded in gettin4 about
seventy votes against the Constitution. If our
friends had been active the straight vote might
have been doubled. I presume the vote for
and against will be very nearly equal in this
There will also be considerable opposition
in Jefferson, Johnson, Unn and Franklin
counties. In the Territory there will probably
be fifteen hundred votes adverse to the Con.
stitution, and perhaps six thousand in favot,
making the vote about the sante as that. of
The English dodge is received with a right
spirit in every portion of the Territory. It
will be voted down with a vengeance.

Railroad Ca malty.
A few nights since, a United States soldier,
bound with his company for Leavenworth, lien•
sax, accidentally fell off the Railroad 'Bridge,
at Harper's Ferry, into the Potomac liver, a
distance of thirty feet. The night being dark,
the soldier came out of the car, and walked off
the platform on what he supposed to be the
ground, until he found himself in chaos. When
he struck the water his hat floated down the
stream, and when the soldier blew the water
from his mouth, instead of making immedi
ately for shore, he swam after his beaver,
caught it, and paddled towards the shore with
out a scratch. The feat astonished all who
witnessed it, and created a tremendous excite.

cism nod doubts in reference to its character arc
entirely removed ; and I can and do most cordi
ally oral confidentially recommend its use by all
who would have their hair restored from white
or gray (by reason of sickness or age.,) to origi
nal color and beauty, and by all young persons
who would have their hair beautilal.
Very truly and gratefully iimrs,
FRIEND ROOD : It inns a lung time after I saw
yon nt Blisstield bolero I got tho bottle of Re
storative for which you gave mo an order upon
' your agent in Detroit, and when I got it wo
concluded to try it on Mrs. Munn's hair, as the
surest test of its power. It has done all that
, you assured me it would do ; and others of my
fatuity and friends, having witnessed its effects'
are now using and recommending its use to oth
ars as entitled to the highest consideration you
claim fur it.

My hair was becoming, as 'Thought, premature

resumed its original color, and, I have no doubt
psrmanently so.
