FnosT.—The past week is one which will be
remembered by many, as remarkable for the
extraordinary streak of weather it brought
with it. First came the buil, knocking down
nod smashing the vegetable kingdom, general..
ly, and doing other injury, 'too tedious to mete
lion." No sooner hail the hail taken its di intr•
lure, than Jack Frost made his unceremonious

lien.—The hail storm of last week, done
more considerable amount of damage than we
bad at first anticipated. The course of the
storm was iu a south easterly direction, but its
violence was confined to a small territory, of
about three miles in length, and about a milt, in
breadth. The greatest injury was done in some
localities, especially in the southern part of the
county, to the fruit trees and growing crops.
A. number of fields of grain is Juniata and
Penn townships, were totally ruined, and the
fruit crop partially destroyed. We have been
informed by a gentleman of the latter township,
who has been a sufferer to a considerrble nit•
oust, in both field and orchard, that on tho day
succeeding the storm, on some parts of his pre.
mines where the hail had been washed down
gulloys, it lay in piles front four to six feet in
depth. lie also states that two fine fields of
rye were beaten down, and his cherry and oth

yield, in their season, hoplessly ru Med. Con
siderable damage Vine done in other parte of
the county, each as demolishing window glass,
twisting trees, knocking off fruit, injuring the
grain, and in two instances badly cutting and
bruising individuals, who were unable to find
a shelter from the mercilessly pelting' of the
' , thunder stone."
A CHAPTER or Ftnurs.—Whether the war
in Europe has wakened the belligerent spirit
of our citizens, or whether it is caused by 'spit..
its acting upon spirits,' in the shape of strych•
nine whisky, we are unable to say ; for as yet,
the .`dog star rageth" not, and the whang doo•
die is silent on the hills. On Wednesday eve•
ning last, a brace of our "nice young men . ' got
into a squabble at the post office, which result

affair, but would not be wrong, we suppose, in

G ossipts.—Onc of the meanest of mean
things is the exceedingly bad practice of gni
silting. Fur the benefit of any given t o this
vice, to our community, we give the following
from a cotemperary. Keep your eye on your
neighbors. Take earn of them. Doi.'t 'let
them stir without watching, They may pos•
sibly something wrong if yen do. To be
sore you never knew them to do anything very
bad, but it may be on your account they have
not. Perim; as if it had not been for your kind
care, they might have disgraced themselves
and families, a long time age, Therelbre
don't relax any effort to keep them where they
ought to be ; never mind your own bus:ness,
that will bike care of itself. There is a
man passing ulono—he is looking over the
fence—be suspicious of him, perhaps he con.
template stealing something; there's no know.

though it is said there was silence in Heaven
fur the space of half an hour, don't let any
such thing occur on earth; it would be too
much like Heaven for the inhabitants of this
mundane sphere. If, after all your watchful
care, you can't are anything out of the way in

I'HOF. 0. J. WOOD ; As . you ore about
inanuf.totare and vend your recently discover
Flair Restorative, I will state, for whomsoever
may concern, that I have used it and knot
others to use it—that I have, for several yea,
been in the hal it of using other Hair Rester
tives, and that I find yours vastly impeder
any other I know. It entirely cleanses the he
of dandruff, and with one month's proper t
will restore any person's hair to the original c
for nod texture, giving it a healthy, soft a
glossy appearance ; and all this. without dise
tiring the hands that apply it, or the dress
which it drops. I would, therefore, reeomme
its use to every one desirous of having a li
color and texturoto the hair.

For the Lancet. Leeches and Blisters 11!
whon the undersigned, after a long series 01
laborious and costly experiments, became fully
confirmed in his conviction, that the Antiphle
atio Salt which ho now has the happiness to
present to the American public, was a '
for Blood-letting, Leeches and Blisters, his
mind wan so agitated that be could not sleep for
many nights. The cause of his agitation Wen
the striking tact, that the manner of he operation
like that of toe sires in vaccination, could nor
be natisfacterialy explained upon any karma
principle. How, in whet w ty, it so effectually
sabdaed htflosionafory Disease and no Oleo;
was at first wholly inexplicable—but, on Nodal
experiment, it was proved that it ortifixes tie
fluids ol the Ludy, the want of an equilibrium ht
is the sdha cause of inflammation. Such ..
is its potency, that like the vaccine matter, t .
requires merely 'sat adheres to thepoint ors quill
dipped into a solution of it, to effect the eistira
system—but must be instantly used to preytaa
deco inpos'tion and secure •its full virtue. Thh:co

The discoverer lies withheld it from the pub
lic till now, by tire advice of a judicious physi
cian and valuable friend whom he eoneulted--
at gentleman known and felt in the medical
world—and who desired to stibmit it to the test

scrutinizing rye, its signal triumph over both

The disuse or tire lancet and Whalers, is de
mantled both by humanity by humanity and
science. Is it not n mistake; to suppose that
a kettle of boiling water (the inflamed blood)
will cease to boil, by dipping out a port of it--
or a cask of bed eider (had bitted) be made
good, by drawing a• pallet' of it? Is it not a
mistake, to suppose that blisters and rubefacients
will remove inflammation. when they virtually
stiperadd one inflammation its another 7 The

As the discoverer of this Salt, solemnly protests
against having it placed in the category el
frauds and impotitions. he has resolved that it
shell go forth to the world, like the pure gold
