OerMan named RUDOLPIT Wlsara, while
crossing the river, and in attempting to
catch a piece of floating timber, fell into
the river and was drowned. The boat
we understand floated down the river,
and was caught at Colntibia. We are
not aware that the unfortunate man has
any relations in this part of the country
to morn his fate. From his previous
Intemperate habits it is believed that ho
was intoxicated at the time of the acci
dent. His body has not yet been found.
Efiir On Friday afternoon of last week,
n frightful storm and rain visited this
IS ection, doing great damage to fruit
trees, fences, &c. The Susquehanna
swelled almost bank full, and almost any
amount of floating timber, trees, wood
&o. completely covered the surface of
the infuriated river. Three or four rafts
lying over from last spring, and for a
long time "high and dry" on shore,
'wore swept away and scattered between
this place and Columbia.

ROBBRRY WII EATIAND : On Satur
day night or Sunday morning the carri
age house of Ex-President Buchanan at
Wheatland was broken open and a very
valuable set of double harness carried
nff. The thieves effected an entrance
by prying open the door and found the
barnese in a small closet or box kept for
the purpose. Those harness wore pur
chased at Washington by Mr. Buchanan
shortoly after his inauguration as Presi
dent, at a cost of five hundred and thirty
dollars. They are heavily mounted with
silver, and as the rogues will hardly at
tempt to dispose of them, through fear
of detection, it is likely they will cut off
the mountings, melt them down and sell
it as old silver. The silver alone in this
shape, would probably yield them several
hundred dollars. After securing the
nbarness the rouges visited the ice house
,and carried of all the marketing that day
purellased by Mr. Buchanan's house
keeper. The rascals were apparently
well acquainted , with the premises.—
Gir The ;Election comes off on Tues
day next, and it is to be hoped that
every freeman will go fearlously to the
polls and exercise that dearest of a free

For our sick Soldiers.
Some ladies of our borough desire to
make up a box or boxes of much needed
articles for our sick soldiers in the Wash
ington and other hospitals. Jellies,
apple and ether fruit butter, canned and
dried fruits, pickles and_ other like re
freshments and dainties, so grateful and
salutary for invalids, are respectfully
and urgently solicited. Also, blankets,
woolen socks, yarn for tho same, or oven
money to purchase yarn and pay freight
on the boxes, will be very acceptable,
as all these are.needed by our brave
sick and wounded soldiers. And many
ladies who cannot afford to buy yarn
will gladly knit socks if yarn is furnish
This appeal is made, not only to our
townspeople, but to our farmers also,
most of whom have some of these arti
cles in abundance, and any of whom can
spare some even. of their choicest stores
for the comfort and restoration of these
poor fellows who are bearing our bur
dens, fighting our battles, suffering in
our behalf, and languishing on hospital
couches of sickness and pain for our
sakes. Shall we not prove, by such easy
sacrifices—such kind tokens from their
fellow-citizens at home in the enjoyment
of quiet and plenty—that we remember
them, care for them, and are grateful to
them. Yes, shall we not show by these
simple, yet useful and needed gifts, that
we are grateful to God, their and our
common Father in heaven, that by their
devotion to our common country, the
fearful desolation of battle and of war
have been kept back from our peaceful
fields and happy homes ?
Let all who thus foel, contribute liber

gives them opportunity.

Fast Day Evening.
Mn. EbITOR: I don't know who wrote
that letter for your paper, praising up
Mr. Wheeler's Sermon on the Fast-Day;
there is no doubt, however, but that it
was some selfrighteous Pharice, who
thinks, that his own sins, and those of
his northern friends of tho same color
as hithself had little or nothing to do in
bringing about the Rebellion, and who
was mightly pleased to have the whole
blame laid on Slavery, an institution
that don't exist amongst us. Does it
not scorn to you, Sir that Mr. Wheeler's
eloquence was wasted on the occasion ?
I think if it was of the' kind that "X"
would have ns to believe, it ought to
have been preached at Richmond, Vir
ginia, or to some congregation that
needed it. I don't know of any slave
owners in Mr. Wheeler's congregation;
if "X" does, I hope ho will name them.
It is plain to me that if Slavery is done
away with in the South, some folks in
the North must help to take care of the
cattle. Perhaps "X" will tell us what
ho would do with there, and if ho can't,
could ho not bring Mr. Wheoler to the
rescue, so that between them, your read
ers might get a little more light on this
dark 'subject. A. B. C.
Gr The editor of the Monmouth (N.
J.) Democrat has been on a visit to ex-
President Buchanan. lie writes back
to his paper as follows : I visited Wheat
land, the maidens° of ex-President
Buchanan. I had never seen him, and
gladly embraced the opportunity, As
we approached the house, we saw the
Stars and Stripes floating from a fine
flag-staff in front. He received us in
the library. HO had just recovered
from a fit of sickness, the first he said
ho ever had. Ho looked well, but com
plained that his former strength of body
was gone. He entertained us for an
hour in conversation, which principally
turned upon the rebellion. He related
many personal anecdotes of the leading
military men now before the country,
North and South. He was emphatical
ly of the opinion that there is no way
to get out of our difficulties but to fight
it out. I came away well satisfied that,
James Buchanan stands firmly for the
Union, and that whether mistaken or
not, he has always acted from the high
est motives of patriotism.
