THE Pittsburgh Dispatch now issues a paper every day in the year, the first Sunday edition was issued on Sunday last and is a most excellent sheet, full of late and intering reading matter -and contains 12 pages. The Dispatch is miles ahead of any other Pittsburg paper as a vehicle of news, home and foreign, and the addition of the Sunday paper makes it complete. THE Carrolltown News says: We are informed by an old experienced lumberman, who is well poste d in the timber business along the head of the Susquehanna river and Client Creek, that twenty million feet of pine will be put into these two water courses this fall and winter, to be floated to market next spring. Besides this there will also be a large amount of hard timber put in. ROUT. MITCHELL, of Diantqndville ; B. F. Pitts, of Cherrytree and Jno. M. Gutherie, of this place have purchased the Two- lick Mills property at Lower Twolick. The purchase includes mills, lumber and logs on hand and some timber land at the head of the creek. The consideration is said to be $80,000. It is a most valuable property and was owned by Jas. A. McGee the estate of the late Jease M. Harter. MB. I. C. BANK, of Montgomery township this county, met with a serious accident on Thursday last,while pulling stumps. He had pulled a large stump and hitched a team to it to haul it away. In turning the stump over a long root struck Mr. Itank on the head and shoulder, felling him to the ground. Fortunately no bones were broken though he was unconscious for an hour and is still confined to his house and suffering severe pain. SAHTTEL MCCAULET, in jail at Greensburg, charged with killing his father, gave a judgment note to H. W. Walkinshaw, his counsel, on the 3rd inst., for $350, and on Thursday the Sheriff levied on the personal property of the prisoner, being all his stock and utensils. Some hold that this explodes the theory that he has $10,000 in the bank, while others s»y it is a mere legal formality to prevent the property from falling into the hands of others during his incarceration and its possible sequence. SHERIFF JAMISON disposed of the following properties on Friday last: Interest of A. D. Armstrong in 250 acres of land in Conemaugh township, sold to Mrs. Harriett Biehey, for $7,000. Interest of Martin Womer in 60 acres in Brushvalley, sold to Fanner's Bank for $1500. Interest of Beuben Axe in tract of land in Brownstown, Burrell township, to S. D. Long for $200. Interest of Geo. Schlemmer in tract of land in Canoe township, sold to Wash, Banks for $187.

This is caused by the fact that- they keep a large stock on hand and selltl low prices. They are practical workmen- and know a good piece of furniture witen. they see it. Besides,if you cannot be srfiid by anything they have in stock, tber os£ make any article desired. There is great demand for their shop work and a lanfe force of hands are kept constantly employed- Beader, if you want anything in the furni-' ture line you will make a mistake if you don't call at this establishment before purchasing. This is true, and don't forget it Dr. a N. Hickok, Grand Master of the Grind Lodge of I.O. ofO.

THZ Greensburg Argus says :. A correspondent, who professes to be posted, furnishes us with the following geological information in regard to the route of one of the proposed new railroads to traverse a portion ( of this coi-nty : "There are few persons,' even along the proposed "new route" who know the great wealth of the minerals along it, such as iron ore, fire clay, potter's clay, and thousands of acres of coal the thickness of which runs from two to fourteen feet; limestone and other minerals in abundance, and the best kind of timber in great quantities, in short, the greatest mineraT wealth in the State lies along the proposed new route, np Crooked creek and Plum creek, via Marion or Plumville to Punxsutawney.'-" FROM correspondence of the Oil City Derrick we abstract the following: Last Saturday a man named Sylvester Knott, who had been crated by excitement at the meetings of the Salvation Army, took his eight year old 'boy into the woods and attempted to crucify him. He had nailed one of the boys [land to the cross when his cries attracted some wood choppers who released the boy, the father having fled. That same night he returned, broke the door of his house,knocked his wife insensible with an ax, took hie uxteenyear old daughter,bound and carried her into the woods where he had erected an altar of cord wood, laid her on it and set fire to the wood, intending to offer her up as a sacrifice. She was recued after she was )adly burned. The fright has made her insane. The father has been arrested and confined. THEK£ is, or was,a base ball club in TJn- .ontown. They claimed to be the "champions" of southwestern Pennsylvania and manifested a strong itching to measure wil- ows with the Magentas, of this place. Accordingly a game was arranged for Friday ast and the Uniontown boys put in an appearance. They are a well made,athletic set >f fellows and we anticipated a good game rat the opening score will show we were disappointed. The Magentas made 10 runs on the first inning and it appeared to have a depressing effect on the champions of "south western Pennsylvania" and they worried through the balance of the game in a listless manner and appeared only to be anxious for ;rain time to arrive that they might go home The following is the score by innings: Magentas 10 6710208 *—34 Uniontown 00021000 0— 3 ON Saturday night last the barn of Mr. IVilliam Bissinger, near Homer City, was discovered to be on fire. Before assistance could reached the barn the flames had gained such headway as to make it impossible to save the structure or any of the contents and soon the whole concern was a mass of ruins. Thirty-three tonsjof hay, 400 bushels of oats, .00 bushels of wheat, together with many arming implements, harness, &c., were in he building and were destroyed. Two fine lorses were in the building and it was be- ieved that both had been burned; but on he following day one of the animals was bund in a corn field near by, but it was hockingly burned that it was deemed best o shoot it. The hair was almost completely turned off it and both eyes were destroyed. Jr. Kissingers loss will not be les.» than one housand dollars on which there is an in- uranee of seven hundred and fifty dollars. ?he fire was the work of an incendiary. A DISPATCH from Beading dated Sept. 6, ays: The man who was the actual father f more children than any other person in 'ennsylvania, or probably in the United States, was killed last night by being struck y a train at Lancaster. He resided in this ity for many years. His body was brought lere to-day. His name was John Huffner, ged sixty seven, a rag picker by occupation Ie was the father of forty-two children.' Ie was born in Wurtemburg. He was first married when he was twenty-five years of age in Germany, in 1840. The wife bore to im seventeen children in eight years.twins i nd triplets, and she died. The eldest child ras seven years of age. In 1849 Huffner ook his second wife, and she bore him twins very year for five years. Tliis wife lived ine years.

FBOM the court proceedings as published in the Ebensburg papers, we clip the fol- owing which relates to a little episode in be life of Jno. Brown who resides near irmagh, in this county: The first case tried this term was that f Commonwealth vs. George Kurtz, and Daniel Allen, charged with ighway robbery. Allen was the only ne of the trio in the toils, and hence he tad to bear the brunt alone. John Brown is an Indiana county farmer n pretty fair circumstances, and although uite gray, he is strong and vigorous. On lie third day of April last he came to 'ohnstown with $100 cash in his pocket, 'his by collections, etc., he increased to wrhaps $175, John will drink, and when n his cups is "a hale fellow well met," Of ourse he soon had plenty of company, but, nfortunately, not of the right kind. After ark he and one Oliver Evans, together rith Allen, Kurtz and , were in Jostlow's saloon on Portage street. Brown was then so drunk that he was refused li- uor. He seemed to have an inexhaustable upply of money and flourished it about reely. With his company he left the sa- oon and immediately he was robbed of his money. He could not identify Allen as ne of his assailants, but the testimony of lichael Quinn, the saloon keeper, and of Oliver Evans tended to sustain the charge f the Commonwealth. He was ably represented by James McLaughlin, Esq., W. I. Sechler, Esq., for the Commonwealth, ury rendered a verdict of guilty in manner, etc, .Gettysburg Items.

That Lead Mine found at Livermore, A correspondent of the Leader says : It is reported that a party of men who|have been searching for the long lost lead mine in the neighborhood of this place have at last been successful, and the new company will in a short time be ready to commence active operations. Nearly every person in this county has heard his father talk of a lead mine, and every one is unanimous in locating it on the farm of William Bergman or that of the heirs of the late John Gallagher, but itn definite location is known only to a few, if indeed to them. Mr. Bergman is not all alarmed at the prospect of his farm being dotted with shaft, and is pursuing the even tenor of his way heedless of the richness or poverty of the land which lies beyond a iew feet below the surface. A few miles Tom his farm the reporter found Captain 8. N. McComb, the village postmaster, at Oewisville. On being questioned the captain said that he had often heard his father talk of such a mine, and that he knew it to )e a reality, as his paternal ancestor had used the lead thus procured in making bul- ets in the early days of tjbe settlement. Etis father who was at that time a farmer, also served in the war of 1812, and nearly all the recruits from this neighborhood get the weightier portion of their ammunition from this same mine, the Bergman property being then owned by an old Irishman named George McElhauly. Whan the latter felt that his days on earth were few he entrusted the secret to his wife,and when she in turn felt the clammy hand of death oa her brow, told the secret to David jriffin, a steady going young fanner. When the late war broke out youag Griffin enlisted in the army, and when a rebel bullet crushed in his brain the secret was for ;he time lost. Besides these people men- ioned, however, there were others who inew the story, and these were the Indians, aut they were too cunning to allow the white man t9 take advantage of their tnowledge. Thus the case has stood for many years, and unless the present company can get possession of the prpperty'on rhich the mine is located it will likely remain a mystery. Captain McComb says that his father always used the lead in its purity, just as it was taken from the ground jy the aged Irishman, The tract on which it is supposed to be located comprises over one hundred acres, and the upper portion where, it is alleged, the mine is located, is stony and unproductive. Marlon Borland's Book. The following review, written by Judge Tourgee, the celebrated author, and editor of the popular magazine, ''The Continent," embodies in a few words the pith of the many hundred testimonials received as to the merits of "Eve's Daughters." Marion Harland's new book, "Eve's Daughters," is the most remarkable work of the kind ever published. The graceful and spmpathetic writer, whose hand has already done much to lighten the labors and orighten the lives of her sisters, in these pages admits every American mother,daugh- :er and wife to a eeries of confidential talks, every'word of which is instinct with candor, good sense, delicacy and sincerity. No man can read it without gathering from its pages a new lesson of tenderness and sympathy for the yoke-fcllow of his life ; no mother without yearning to instil its truths into the tender heart of her daughter, and no daughter without learning to honor with a still tenderer devotion the mother who hes died to the world that she might live in it. The author recognizes fully the fact that the writers of all such works have forgotten heretofore, that every new generation faces new duties, exits under new, conditions, and that yesterday's juide-books are only hiJf-reliable charts of to-morrow's journey. She speaks to the girl, the wife, the mother of to-day, and not one of them should fail to read her words. One can readily imagine the father giving the volume to his budding daughter with a kiss, and the daughter thanking him with bright eyes when she has perused its pages. Marion' Harlar.d leads every reader to think upon the most important of all earthly subjects, and in a fashion that ie sure to do them, and those who are to come after them, good. We devoutly wish that every American woman would con its pages and heed the lessons of this charming and preeminently useful book. Its lessons are especially needed that the life of to-day may be made better and the hope of to-morrow made brighter. S. J. Beighel the General Agent of the publishers, will be in town until after Institute. Frigtt-Sight-Nigkt.

Ktinei.- 1354-* I . Important The Grand Jury last week made the fo' lowing presentment to the Court. To the Hon. John P. Blair, Judge of th Court of Common Pleas of Indiana Conn ty:— ^"The Grand Jurors now in session, Sept 5th, 1883, do respectfully present:—Tha the public roads leading from 'he county seat to the borders of the county are in very bad condition, owing to the negligence and carelessness of the supervisors having charge of the same. In many townships m proper effort is made to keep them in repair. We would especially mentioa the fol lowing as being in such bad condition as to re quire immediate repairs to make them safe ly passible, to-wit: The road leading from Indiana to Mechan icsburg, through White and Brushvalley townships. Indiana to Strongstown and Mechanicsburg to Strongstowa, through White, Pine and Buffington. Indiana to Cherrytree via Greenville anc Pine Flat, through White, Cherryhill am: Green. From Greenville to Diamondville am Cookport, through Cherryhill and Green townships. The New State Road from Indiana through Whith, Bayne, Green and Montgomeay, and also mail ronte from Dixonville to Cookpor and Cherrytree, through Green. Mahoning Boad leading through Kellys- burg, Marion, Marchand and Covode; also, branches of the same from Marion through Decker's Point and Gettysburg to Cherrytree, and from Marion via Bichmond and Smithport, through townships of White, Bayne, East Mahoning, North Mahoning, Grant Montgomery, Canoe and Banks. Boad from Indiana via Chambersville and Plumville to Smicksburg, throngh White. Bayne, South and West Mahoning. Boad from Indiana to Elderton via Shelocta, through White and Armstrong. Boad from Indiana to Blairsville. through White, Centre and Burrell. Indiana to Saltsburg via Clarksburg through White, Centre, Blacklick and Con emaugh. Also, mail route through Buffington from Blacklick Furnace to John W. Duncan's mill. We would therefore recommend that the Supervisors of the several townships mentioned shall be notified by order of the Court to proceed without delay to put these several roads in good repair for safe, easy and convenient passage, and that the District Attorney shall be directed to prepare indictments against them and to prosecute the same at the next term of court, unless in the meantime they shall have complied with the order of Court and furnished thr evidence that they have done so. We would also request the Court to give some general instructions to Supervisors, as >o their powers and duties, in order that they many not shield themselves under the >Iea of ignorance of the law.

Thougn vales and mountains Intervene, In vision, ona night, I lately seen My youthful liome. so dear to me; So full of golden memory, It seemed just like tne long ago: Like the scenes I loved in chi dhood so, I saw my brothers as boys again; Busy at work on the farm, and tnen, I thought we girls had gone- to play. And hunt the eggs in the newmown nay, While parents dear had taken a walk, To see the corn and the fatning stock, As down at the sparkling water's brink The cattle all had come to drink. The lowing herd from off the hill, Had come to the quiet shady rill. But since I awoke how changed it seems; For I had beea in the land of dreams. And the dear old larin has long been sold, And tilled by otber bands, I'm told; While the pebbled h.ouse,with white washed walls, Now echoes when a stranger calls. And other children's feet now treads The paths so-dear, of my old homestead, And as I sit and write to-day, Of my childhood's home,so far away. The house, the barn and every neld, Alike fond recollections yield; Oh, yes, it seems there's not a spot. But with|the choicest memories fraught, The porch in front of the house so long; How it used to ring with a merry song, -And bow we children from off our boot. Would underneath the railing look, (That top-most railing placed so high) To view the frequent passer-by, And as we come to theold door sill. For there, with mother side by side, I so often sat in the eventide, To wait for father to come home. After a hard days work was done, And when we've o er the threshold part, Remembrances come thick and last, Of rarest joys within that home. Of purest bliss, in days by gone. Now, as I on the past do muse, I think of those who did infuse First principles of heart and head. As being numbered with the dead; While sisters three, we yet remain, Made glad in other homes again; Of brothers, two, I played with them, Have long been active business men; And one his country's cause to shield, A true and noble life did yield; Yes, when our country was assailed, And the dear old rtag was torn and trailed. None braver ever fell than he, As all who knew him will agree. Now, as we through the lapse of years, Look back and see this land In tears, Full well we know how we did share The anguish incidentto wa» But 'tis a glad consoling thought, To know the cause for which he fought, A lasting victory did gain. And that he did not fall in vain, O. may we all, whose lives are spared. Live so that wemay be prepared, To join the others in that home, Where separations never come. COKE. No Smell!
