Hon. Jno. I. Mitchell, of Tioga
county, was elected Senator on Wednes
day last, the Compromise Committee
having agreed upon his nomination the
night previous. Mr. Mitchell is at pres
ent a member of Congress from the 10th
district, and was also member of the
forty-fifth Congress. Previous to his
ejection to Congress he was a member
of the State Legislature, having served
there from 1872 till 1870. The new Sen
ator is comparatively a young man being
aged about 43 years.
tiriTE a flurry in the stock market
occurred on Friday last, stocks falling
from 5 to 20 per cent. The cause is laid
to the action of the banks which con
tracted their volume of currency nearly
thirteen millions of dollars by taking up
bonds and returning their notes to the
treasury. This action on the part of the
banks was taken because they dislike
the section in the new funding bill,
wbich compels them to use the new
three per cent, bonds as a basis for their
currency, aud from appearance this bill
will pass, though there Is a hope that
the president will veto it. The Secretary
of the treasury attempted and partially
succeeded in stopping the panic by call,
ing in ten millions in bonds and thus
relieving the market to that extent.
Withdrawals of Bank Circulation.
Washington, Feb. 23. There have
been deposited in the Treasury about
$4,000,000 in legal tenders by national
banks to withdraw circulation on ac
count of the Funding bill. The amount
deposited to day was $2,800,000, being
from twelve banks. Two of these banks
are in New York City, one each in Phil
adelphia, Boston, and Albany, and the
others in New York State, Pennsylvania
and New Jersey.
Most of the bonds withdrawn from the
Treasury since the Senate passed the
Funding bill by banks retiring their cir
culation are five per cents. Since
November 1st last there has been a
decrease of $16,000,000 in five per cent,
bonds deposited to secure circulation of
national banks, a decrease of $14,600,000
in the deposit of fours, and of $2,140,000
in the deposit of four and-a-halfs. No
effort was made to dispose of the Fund
ing bill to-day.
Important to Newly-Elected Justices of the
The persons' recently elected to the
offioe of Justice of the Peace, will avoid
much annoyance by giving heed to the
following section of the supplement to
an act entitled "An Act providing for
election of Alderman and Justices of the
Section 4. That the Aldermen or
Justices of the Peace elected under the
provisions of this act, shall file an ac
ceptance of said office with the prothon
otary of the proper county, stating there
in the name of the Alderman or Justice
of the Peace whom they succeed, with
the caue of vacancy ; and said pro
thonotary shall certify the same under
his seal of office to the Secretary of the
Commonwealth, whereupon the Gov
ernor shall issue commission to such
persons as shall appear to be duly elect
ed, for the term of five years, to be
computed from the first Monday of May
succeeding the election, for which said
commission each person so elected an
Alderman or Justice of the Peace shall
pay three dollars, to be received by the
recorder of deeds of the proper county,
to be by him transmitted to the Secre
tary of the Commonwealth as fees for
other commissions are transmitted : and
the said Alderman or Justice of the
Peace shall be by the said recorder
sworn or affirmed in the manner now
provided by law.
We might also add in this connection
that it is necessary for constables to file
their oaths of office.
A Sad Case.
A Tuesday's despatch from Milwaukee
says : " Coroner Heckman was yester
day notified that a dead body lay In a
house on the plank road, a short dis
tance from the city limits. On proceed
ing to the place h'e found a family in a
horrible state of destitution. The in
mates consisted of the mother, ill from
giving birth to a child eight days before,
and which had been dead in the house
for two days, and four children ranging
in age from ten years down. The fami
ly had had no food for forty-eight hours
other than scrapings from an old swill
barrel which had formerly been used In
carrying slops from a distillery. The
squalor and filth of the place Is describ
ed as sickening to the laet degree. The
father, Ernest Latz, is in jail awaiting
trial for the theft of an old harness.
He completed a term of sixty days in the
house of correction on Monday for some
petty orense,and was at once rearrested.
A Fellow Who Wants Lynching.
A despatch from Richmond, Indiana,
Tuesday states : Walker Amos has en
tered a plea of guilty to the charge of
kidnapping, and has confessed that he
enticed a Buiall boy, named Adolphus
Williams, from his home, No. 3C3 Bright
street, Indianapolis, and started on foot
with him towards this place. They
walked sixteen miles the first day, aud
when the boy's feet became sore, Amos
made a cat-o'-nine tails out of a rope
and lashed the boy to make him walk
on, whipping the boy until he almost
fainted. They walked on to Blchmond,
begging as they went, the boy being for
bidden on the pain of death to make
any complaint. At this place he took
another little boy named RatlllTe, and
started on towards Pittsburg, compell
ing the boys to walk over frozen roads,
and beating them unmercifully when
ever they complained. They had reached
Troy, Ohio, when they were overtaken
by persons from here and brought back
to this place. Amos says he Intended to
take the boys to Harrisburg, Pa., to his
mother, and have her raise them. The
fellow is a lightcolored mulatto, very
tall and slim. He says he was a porter
in a disreputable saloon in Chicago dur
ing the winter.
A Death-Bed Confession.
A Bloomlngton, 111., despatch says:
George M. RoUBh, a prominent stock
raiser, died three years ago suddenly one
night in his bed. It was supposed to be
heart disease. His estate, amounting to
$30,000, was divided among his three
children and wife, the latter following
him to his grave about a year later. The
eldest son, Peter, went to Northern
Iowa, succeeded in adding to his wealth,
married wealthy, and was accounted a
valuable citizen. A few days ago he
died. When informed he could not lh e,
in the presence of physicians and his
family he made a confession that he had
murdered his father in order to get a
ehare of the property. Mr. Rousu was
in the habit of placing a glass of water
near his bed, and Peter slipped into his
room and emptied poison in the water,
which his father unsuspectingly drank
in the night.
' A Girl Changes Her Mind.
Earnest Graham and Belle Boper
started from Clement, 111., for St. Louis,
where they were to be married. They
were accompanied by Lewis Lindsay,
who was to be the groomsman at the
wedding, and a party of relatives and
friends. Their train was delayed, and
they did not arrive in St. Louis until
too late to have the ceremony performed
at the appointed time. But a postpone
ment was not the only disarrangement
of the programme. Miss Boper an
nounced that, during the journey, she
had changed her mind and would not
marry Graham, but would request the
clergyman to make her the wife of
Lindsay, which was done.
" Murder will Out."
Two years ago, at London, Ohio, Mrs.
Samuel Armstrong was arrested for
murdering her husband, who was found
in bed with a pistol-shot through the
head. She was discharged for insuffi
cient evidence. Two weeks ago Mrs.
Armstrong married Herman Cornelius,
and on Saturday luat she was rearrested,
together with her mother, on the charge
of murder. A man in Texas named
Adams, who is supposed to know some
thing about the murder, has also been
arrested. A brother of the murdered
man has been collecting evidence for
two years against bis brother's wife,
and the officers say they have a clear
Shocking Cruelty lo Children.
A terrible story of cruelty to children
is told by a correspondent : The victims
are orphaus who were sent from various
asylums of the Quaker City to Delaware.
Tom, a little boy, in the household of a
Sussex farmer Reuben Johnson was
worked almost to death, and during the
cold weather was furnished with such
an Insufficient supply of clothing that
his feet were frozen and the flesh drop,
ped oft from the toes, the frost bitten
flesh extended to bis knees. This poor
little boy, with a pair of nearly worn
out brogans, had been on the morning
of December 80, when the mercury was
seventeen degrees below zero, in the
face of a driving snow storm, sent to
protect his master's unhusked corn from
the cows and crows. He remained
standing around in the snow until 4
o'clock, when he drove the cows home
received a piece of cold corn pone and
was sent out in the snow again to chop
stove wood until dark. Having no bed,
he slept that night In front of the fire
place, with his frozen feet buried In
warm ashes. The following day he was
hardly able to walk, and from that time
forward he suffered intensely. This is
only, however, a hint of the shocking
story. Johnson was arrested and fined
$32. The boy's feet had to be cut off and
he is in danger of losing his legs.
. Dancing Church Members.
Pastor Marsden said to his Methodist
congregation, at Yarker, Ontario, that
if certain members persisted in attend
ing dancing parties they must withdraw
from the church. Six persons instantly
stood up and asked for dismissal.
ty-The father of Charlie Ross, writing
to the latest discoverers of the lost boy
in Canada, says that the last spark of
hope has gone out, and he mourns the
lost one as dead. After giving reasons
why the Canada boy cannot possibly be
Charlie, he adds : " I have always be
lieved that my Charlie, although only
4 years and 2 months old at the time he
was taken, would remember bis brother
Walter, who was taken away with him,
and had also thought that be would even
have a distinct recollection of the feeling
of loneliness that he must have experi
enced when he found he was in the
hands of strangers and separated from
his parents." On another recent occa
sion, Mr. Ross said : " The only tidings
I have ever received of Charlie since he
was stolen was the demand for a ran
som of $20,000. If I had paid that, I
would have had him long before this.
As it is, I have spent $00,000, and have
not got him."
0 About half-past one o'clock on
Thursday morning, a fire was dis
covered in the drug store of Solan Bros.,
East Liverpool, Ohio. It is supposed
that Solan being a new comer did not
understand the heavy pressure at times
of the natural gas and left it burning In
the store over which he and his family,
a wife, seven children and a brother-in-law,
Mr. SkellB, were sleeping. When
Solan discovered the fire he awoke
the family and found the stairs had
burned away. He took his daughter
three years old and leaped from the
window to the ground. He told his
wife, who had the baby In her arms,
and the children to follow. Solan broke
his leg in jumping. The wife and ctall
dred failed to jump and were tgirned to
death; also, Mr. SkellB. The bodies
were found next morning the wife,
with the baby in her arms, both burned
to a crisp. The five other children were
found huddled closely and Skells was
probably smothered by the smoke.
UTA great sensation has just been
created at Liberty, Sullivan county, N.
Y.,a small town nearPort Jervls, by the
elopement of Mrs. De Witt Beebe, the
wife of a well-to-do and respectable
mechanic, with an Impecunious musio
teacher named Loomis. Mrs. Beebe
took with her $1200 In money, her cloth
ing, jewelry and all the valuables she
had. She was the mother of two bright
little girls, one of whom, an infant
scarcely two years of age, she took
with her. The guilty pair were tracked
to Middletown, where they remained all
night and from where they had taken
the curs for the West. Mr. Beebe, who
is an houest, hard-working and highly
respectable man, is much broken down
by his misfortune, but will take no steps
to catch the guilty party. He will bring
suit at the coming term of court for a
