A young man named CaHhner,aged 16
years, of Hopewell twp., York county,
on Saturday evening aweek, while at
tending singing school at Bowman's,
was shot in the thigh, by the accidental
discharge of a gun, carelessly left under

the gun mistook it for a stick, and in
pulling it through the fence received a
terrible, if not fatal wound in his thigh.
The Law of Estrays. Many people are
unfamiliar with the law in regard to
estrays, and for the benefit of such, we
print the following information :
The first duty of any one taking up
an estray is to place a description of it
on the books of the township clerk, and
to advertise the same in a newspaper
within ten days thereafter. A failure
to do this lays such person liable for
damages. It is a foolish as well as a
dangerous thing to take up property of
this kind and hold it awaiting an ofl'erof
a large reward.
Married but Not Mated. Most of our
readers will remember the marriage of
Miss Seager, of Blain, which took place
several years since under rather queer
circumstances, and as both of the parties
are former residents of this county will

take from a Chicago paper. So far Miss
Seager seems to have the best of the

Express Thieves. On Monday night,
when the Philadelphia express was on
its way East from Pittsburgh to Balti
more, the messenger discovered, when
he reached Altoona, that the door of an
express car which had been securely
locked when the train left Pittsburgh
had been forced open and a lot of goods
Btolen from the car. The thief, or
thieves, had destroyed the manifests
to prevent the messenger from ascer
taining what amount of goods were
missing, but as the goods were all regis
tered at the Pittsburg office before leav
ing that city, the amount of theloss and
the description of the goods missing can
be readily ascertained. The car was
what is termed a " through car," and
had been carefully locket! at Pittsburgh.
The thieves, evidently, had spotted the
car before it left Pittsburgh. The re
maining goods were removed from the
car at this city by Colonel Bingham's
employees. llarrisburg Patriot.
Almost Suffocated On Tuesday night
Capt. James Elder's wife and three sons
narrowly escaped suffocation under the
following circumstances : The captain
was absent from home on business, and
the mother, with her three children,
slept together in one room ; but before
retiring for the night, a coal fire was
prepared to burn until morning; the
damper was properly fixed, a hod full of
wet coal was dumped into the stove, the
top lids of which were left about half
open. Some time during the night little
Mac, the youngest boy, awoke from his
stupid slumbers, exclaiming that " his
head was bustin." He managed to
arouse his mother, who immediately di
vined the cause of the trouble with the
boy's and her own head. Mclntire be

Shocking Accident at Bridfleport.
Robert Lovegrove, aged twenty-one
years, who was the main support of his
widowed mother, residing at York, and
a worthy young mechanic, finding work
scarce, entered the service of the North

four weeks ago. Last Saturday a week

A Peculiar Case. About three years
ago Frederick Fletterer, Jr., of Lancas
ter county, was convicted of fornication
and bastardy. . Not having been able
to pay the usual fine, costs, etc., he was
removed to jail. Proceedings were sub
sequently had looking to his release
under the insolvent act, but unfortuna
tely the petition for the discharge of the
prisoner was presented to the court at
the wrong term. The court, according
ly refused to order his release. At the
next term another petition was filed,
but the court ruled that after the presen
tation of a petition under the insolvent
act a future petition could not be legally
recognized. Application was then made
for redress to the county commissioners,
but they declined to remit the fine and
costs. An appeal was then made to the
board of pardons and the case was argued
on Tuesday. The board dismissed the
application on the ground that as Flet
terer had never been sentenced to im
prisonment they could not help him
out of the difficulty. The prisoner can
obtain no relief even from the governor,
as his power is confined independently
of the action of the board of pardons,
to a remission of fine not of costs.
The only remedy the prisoner has is a
cancellation of his indebtedness by the
commissioners or his friends. Unless
this is done, he will probably have to
serve for life.

Holmes Parvln, a citizens of Patterson,

Monday afternoon. He was assisting in

Mr. William Rice, of Lack township,
died very suddenly at 12 o'clock noon,
