THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE We this week publish on our first page, m appropriate to the season, the Declaration of Independence promulgated by the revolutionary father of '76 To the younger portion of our readers, who may not be familiar with its utterances and the grievances complained of by the fathers, we commend its careiui reaaiug. u u refresh their memorise with the great doctrines it inculoates, and let its plain, practical lessons of patriotism be pondered. The Declaration as it appears in our paper to-day has been standing in type, tnat is, 11 nas reuimuwi " ur, period of 47 yei rs. In the winter of 1850 two strangers came to Allenlown, and it wasn t long before it was discovered that they were engaged in passing counterfeit banK bills, ana inai iiiey bad victimized quite a number of merchants and other dealers. They were traced up, takeu in ens. tody at Hethleheui, brought back, and aftor a bearing jailed for trial at court. Their names were Simpson and Ward, and, as came to light soon afterwards, they belouged to Williamsport, Pa. One of them, Ward, was a printer, and his idleness in jail being wearisome and a punishment in itself, he begged the then publisher of the Democbat, Mitllin Hannnni, now deceased, to place in his cell several cases of type, so that he might have something to do. The proposition was accepted, and bemg a nrst-ciasB w pe-Biir no weekly set np a large lot of matter which was carried from the prison to the printing ofhee on "galleys." Among other things he set up the Declaration of Independence precisely n u appears in our columns to-day. Mr. Haunnm soon after it bail been in print the first time procured a new dress for the paper, and the type in which ' . the Declaration had been set being in tolerably good condition yet, it was retained in its setup form, and has since then been brought m use occasionally on Fourth of July week. both Sim p- . son and Ward were convicted, and ou July ord, 1851, at about noon. Deputy Sheriff (J. . Humes, now dee'd.. Dr. George C. Hand, and one or two others whose names we can not remd', started to convey them to the eastern Penitentiary at Phila- . delphia in a carriage-the intention being to go as far b Doylestown that day so that the eouvicts might be safely jailed there over night. The party had not departed over an hour from here when Mr. Simpson, the father of convict Simpson, arrived in town, stopping at the old Allen House, (the site at preseut occupied by the stately Hotel Allen,) then kepi by Edward Seider. deed. Making inquiry about the boys iu prison ha was told that the Sheriff had that morning started to convey them to Philadelphia. Upon this tlio pa- : rent became very angry, he seeming to think that too mnch hat-ts had been exercised in carrying out the sentence of the ennrt. He hud come to town by team, and aftor having learned that the prisoners were even then on their way to Cherry Hill in charge of deputies, and in fact all the pir-ticalars of their removal from the old prison here, be intimated that he had a pardon iu his pocket, and hurriedly ordering his team be started in the direction of Philadelphia, saying that the boys would never enter the portals of the State prison there, and that they would spend the 4th of July with the same unrestricted freedom as the Sheriff aud his deputies. Phis report soon spread over the town, and reaching the ears of Col H. C. Lougnecker, who then was District Attorney, be became excited, and at once took steps to have the convicts re-arrested in the event of pardon papers having been issued. He hurriedly went abont town to find one of the counterfeit notes, and secured a $10 bill that bad been passed on Charles S. Mussey, the jnweler, now deceased. The I utter readily couseuted to 'appear before John P. ltnbe, one of the justices of tbe pence in and for Allentown, and men swore out a warraut for the re arrest of the convicts in the event of a pardon having lieen issued by the Governor. The day was a rainy and disagreeable oue. and to get some one to fnlli.w the party iu charge of the convicts for deliering tbe new warrant to the Sheriff a j h the District Attorney hail not counted upon. He went about town all afternoon to rind some one to en t r npon tbe undertaking, but without snccoss until abont 10 o'clock at night, when Mr. Hiram Gntb, then a clerk in Pretz's store, now the head of the dry goods firm of H Gnth & Son, No. Ivil Hamilton street, Mr. James W. Micklny, also a store clerk, now deceased , and Mr. P. Z. Heebuer, who died last fall while holding a position in the post-otlice department at Washington, agrerd to enter upon the journey, and by a burd drive got to Doylestown on towards morning, and at once made delivery of tbe warrant to the actiug Sheriff. The latter prevailed npon the new comers to contiune their trip clear through to Philadelphia ahead of tbe original pirty, with instructions to stop at the Bald Eagle hotel, North Third street, and to have two cabs ready for the immediate conveyance of the prisoner i to the State prison on reaching the city. This plan was successfully carried nut, hut on reaching the penitentiary all the principal of ficers were absent, owing to the day being a national holiday, and it was only after a long wait that one of them returned aud admitted the party for making delivery of the convicts. No pardon bad been presented at the penitentiary, and the prisoners served out their fnll terms-three years each. Both are dead now. THE BIO ROCK. -Abont three and a half miles from this city, on the Lehigh Monutaiu. in Salisbnry township, is situated a big rock, or rather a pair of rocks, to which an annual pilgrimage is made with as much regularity as are the pilgrin ages of the worshipers who wend thtiir weiry w y to Mecca. These rocks are situated on the higi -est point nf the Lehigh Mountain, and command a view of the snrronnding country which is only bounded by the power of tbe human eye. Th height of these rocks from the base to the bit' lie t part is nearly 15 feet, while they are 1300 feet above water level. Their average circumference is about 60 feet. At harvest time from time immemorial it has been tbe custom of the dwellers in the valleys and on the bills and in the towns which are to be seen in pnnoramin view to make a visit or pilgrimage to the top of the mountain and to tl e top of the rocks. The farmers being very bniy on week days, they take Sunday for the visit And the towns people, the greatest number of them, for some reason take the same day. And bo there is a crowd on the Sunday which comes in the midst of harvest each year being nsually the first after tbe Fourth, and as the harvest will be generally commenced in a few days, next Sunday week will be the proper time to take in the pleasing and cheerful sight presented by the golden shocks of grain placed in readiness for bousing A view of at least twenty miles around can had. and over a section of country that stands preeminent for agricultural richnesk and beauty. In particular is it grand after grain cutting when tbe eye lights npon the pleasing diversity of colors produced by the dottings of the rich and yellow harvests. No one that hai ever heboid it has failed to bear testimony to iti grandeur. PHILADELPHIA MARKET'S. June 28 -f tour.

THE BOSS WHEAT. Onr friend and patron, Mr A iron Bittner, of near Limeport, kept quiet while other people were making so much fuss abont their tall rye, clover and other stuff, and now that they have ail got thmngti he exhibits a stalk of wheat picked from one of his fields that beats the heap. The stalk is 5 feet and 10 inches in length. He sass it is a fair average of tbe field from which taken. He moreover tells us that the crop is extraordinary well headed. The stalks are uniformly strong in straw, and promise an immense crop if nothing untoward should happen. The stalk above mentioned is tbe product of Democratic soil, anil it is doubtful whether it can be excelled anywhere. Mr. li. is an active and progressive farmer, and by hard work and fertilizing with home-made manure ho has bronght his farm hi a very high state of productiveness. He has fine wheat aud grass, aud all of his eropi are very promising. CALLED HOME ON A SAD ERRAND. Mr. C. O.

The charter for tbe con Btruotion of a railroad from Easton to Mahoning Creek, near Slauch Chunk, was granted by the TWialattirn on Anril 21. 1846. to the Delaware. Lehigh and Schuylkill Railroad Company, but the road was not opened until iseptemoer, iom. Thorn wore then hnt two trains daily between Allentown and Philadelphia, and the company started with two locomotives, ine projectors were men of prominence, and while Judge Asa Packer was the father of the operation of the road, James M. Porter, a prominent citizen of Easton, was the first President. Besides Mr. Porter there were other men equally well known who subscribed their names to the charter ot tne com-nanv nmnnv them Solomon Fogel.of Fogelsville, and Henrv King, of Allentown, the latter one of (ha first TWetars There was such a rapid in crease in the business of the road that in 1HIV-J it E radically built the Penn Haven and White aven Railroad, a distance of eight miles. This made a connecting link with the Beaver Meadow Railrnad and Ciial Conmany. which extended from Mauch Chunk to Andenried, twenty-four miles. In 1864 the Beaver Meadow Kaiiroao ana Coal Company was merged into tne Luigu v auey. and in lHoii th Ihivh Valley and Mahanoy Rait road extending from Black Creek Junction to Mount Carmel, about 100 miles, was merged into the, Ihiirh Vallnv avstem. The Ilnzleton Rail road and the Lehigh and Luzerne Railroad Com- Sanies, which branched from Fenn itaveu w me azleton and Black Creek coal fields, were merged in Iftfift This crnvp tliA nnmnanv an extensive sys tem of lines in the Lehinh coal field, and made it one of the big coal carriers at that time, rrevious to 1SW tbe North Branoh Canal Company, which extended from Wilkesbarre to the New York State line, a bug the Susouebanna river, a distance oi 104 miles, was bought, and the Lehigh Valley Railrnad ( Vininnnr nn the r.ronertv thus acquired, constructed the road which is now known as the Pennsylvania and New York Canal and mnroaa Company. The Lehigh Valley Railroad Company leased the Morris Canal and Banking Company in 1871, and about a year afterwards the Easton and Ain-boy Railroad, from Phillipsburg to Perth Amboy, was commenced. A hie increase in business npon the lakes led to tbe establishment of a fleet of iron vessels, and six wooden ones. Within tiie past yeir the company has acquired the Middlesex Valley and the Elmira, Conrtland and Northern Railroads. The company now has osi locomo tives (Yei.riit ,., 41 rfi coal cars, 1,171 passenger and other cars nd in conducting the IniRltiAMR nf tliA nnmnnnv II now has 1. 14ii miles of single track, 530 miles of econd track, which, with branches and sidings, m;ike a total trackage of 2,490 utiles. Since the comp iny was orgauizea it has acquired over 100,000 acres of coal land. GRAND FREE BAND CONCERT. PIC NIC ANU t'Akb. WALK AT CHAt'MAN'S STATION. On Saturday evening.

Mrs. Jennie Hartman, a widow, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Lntz, of Slateville, Lynn townBhip, this county, has been suffering for some time with what was supposed to be a tumor. There was a gathering of considerable size on the right side below tbe lower rib which failed to yield to ordinary treatment. It was painful, and local doctors did not know what to make of it. Mrs. Hartman lost flesh and strength, and was very much reduced in both. An operation was finally determined npon. She was taken by Dr. Follweiler, of Lynn port, to a Philadelphia hospital, where her strength and vitality were gradually built np sufficiently to endure the operation. It was performed on Thursday. The doctors, however, instead of finding a tumor, came across a kidney which had become detached and floated aronud until it lodgid firmly where it was fonnd. Another incision was then made iu the back, and the kidney placed in its original and proper pnsitiou and sewed fast. The or ration was apparently successful, and Inst accounts were to the effect that tbe patient was progressing to-wards recovery. FIREWORKS. Mr. M. Frankenfield, tbe popular confectioner at No. 614 Hamilton street, recently received a large invoice of all kinds of 4th of Jnly supplies which he is offering to the public at very low rates.

The now United Evangelical congtegation at Powder Valley is building a new frame church at that place, to measure 30 by 40 feet, with an addition for the Sunday School. The corner stone was laid nn Sunday afternoon by Rev. H. D. Schultz. of this city, assisted by the pastor, Rev. O. W. Heffner, of East Greenville. A large audience was assem bled, and it was very responsive to Rev. Schnltz's eloquent plea for means to finish the church. the collection and n edges amounted to $1,141. an unusually large snm considering the times and the financial condition of the community. The text of Rev. Schnltz's sermon was Isaiah 28:16. The following was placed in the corner stone : Bible, Discipline of tbe United Evangelical church, and a number of church and other newspapers. REPORTED BURGLARY AT HELLER- TOWN. An attempt was made on Wednesday night to force an entrance into tbe store of George is ueemer. at Uelleitown. The alleged burglars were surprised while at work by John Ttce and Constable Henry Boehm, who fired several shots at them. A nn tuber of bnrnt matches were fonnd around, and there were marks on windows and cel lar doors. Ouly the other day Mr. Deemer hired Edward lioiuladd to act as a special otlicer to watch the store at night. It is said that two suspicions characters were seen about the town at night. Others assert that the alleged attempt at bnrglary was only a scare got up by a certain per son who wants the position of special watchman. THE PROPOSED EASTON AND BETHLE HEM ELECTRIC RAILWAY. Tbe projectors of tbe proposed new electric road between Easton and Bethlehem report that matters are proceeding smoothly, and that the right of way is being secured quite rapidly. It was hoped that all releases could lie had by July 1st, but owing to some delays which were unavoidable, it will be a week or two later than that date. As soon us it has been se cured a survey will he made and the work pushed iorward. THE STRAWBERRY SEASON. The straw berry se ison has closed, and raspberries are now coming in their place. Tbe crop was probably the largest and finest ever produced in this county. There ib only one thing about it that is to be re gretted, and that is that the strawberry season is too short, but then it should be remembered that nature is by far too "cute" to make her best things common, and hence once a year will have to do for a strawberry blessing. WINTER STALL FEEDING OF CATTLE. A well known farmer, who bought a lot of steers last fall for winter fattening, kept an acenrate ac count of all. he fed them, and finds that it took 28 bushels of corn to bring each one in prime condition for marketing. Farmers can now easily figure ont in what way it pays them best to dispose of their corn. RESICMED AS ORGANIST.-Miss Maggie E.

SOI.WEI.I. F1I.CS. THE HARVEST SEASON.-With the farmer this is emphatically the busy season. The bnlk of the haymaking has been finhhed, and the grain harvesting will be generally commenced next week. In the upper end of the connly few rye fields, nn summer hills, were cut within the past few davs. and after nianv months of toil, anxiety and susponee the farmers are now abont reaping the reward of their labor. Of all the periods of a farmer's life harvest is the most beneficial and iovful. When the fields with their waving golden grain are ready for the renp-ing machine, to be taken off and gathered into the barn, and when everything is amply prepared for tbe vitality of man during the cold blasts of a long and dreary winter, it is then, after all these things are accomplished, that the husbandman can go forth with a heart fnll of glee and receive the reward of Lis faithful summer's toil. The wheat crop is one of the best that we have had in a number of years, and this is not nnlv true br tn this connly, bnt in regard to all Eastern Pennsylvania. The rye crop is the best raised in a great number of years, being tall and strong in stalk. The wheat stands very heavy, and the beads have nnea wen with plump, fully developed grains. There are many fields in which the average yield will exceed 30 bushels to the acre, and it is a poor field that will fall below 25 bnsbnls. The crnn has had favorable weather, and has not been visited by very severe storms, so that bnt little of the grain has lodged, aud hence it can be readily cut without waste. A GREAT GRAPE VINE SPREAD. In. the columns of the Democrat, something less than a year ago, we made brief mention of a prolific grape vine which Mr. W. 8. Knlp, the widely known proprietor of the restaurant at No. 17 North Seventh street, this citr. hail so carefully trained over wires that it covered the entire open space in the rear of his Baloon, which is devoted to the nso of his p drons during the warm days and nights of tbe summer season. It was, tit that time, worthy of inspection, hut this season's extensions ore truly wonderful nnd really astonishing, and elicit the admiration of all viewer. It now almost ntirely covers a space of 55 by 17 feet over BOO square feet, from which are pendant not ouly hundreds bnt acthallv thousands of large and finely develop! bunches of grapes. no oue as yet who has inspected this extensive vine clad area has ventured to say that he or she has ever seen it equalled. Mr. K. takes great care and pains in its en I tore, and gladly welcomes all who choose to call for tbe purpose of inspec tion.

And still better, Mr. It. gave us tbe assurance that it was not an extravagant sample of the growth of tbe entire field tbe crop throughout, which is still rapidly growing, showing the same tall proclivity. - It is needless to reuiark that this oats grew ou Democratic soil, and that it was raised by an unadulterated Democrat. If anv of onr readers can beat Mr. Haas ou oats we shall be most happy to acquaint tbe public with the fact. BURGLAR SCARED OFF AT SCHNECKS. VILLE.

On the farm of Jacob Mn h, at Vera Cruz, 8 or 10 of bis fiuest apple trees wero cnt down. AViac Men Know It is folly to build upon a poor foundation either in architecture or in health.

TALL TIMOTHY WHO CAN BEAT IT?-Mr. Tilgbmau P. Kline, the well kuowu western Salisbnry farmer, ono day last week while trim-niiug a hedge fence along one of his fields pulled np a timothy stalk that measured 6 feet aud 9 inches. There are great lots in the field of a length of six feet, aud Mr. K. would like to hear of some one able to raise timothy stalks of the first above mentioned measurement on Republican soil. Tbe one spoken of was grown on land that has been owned continuously by Democrats for over 100 years, and which promises to contiune to be bo owned for generations to come. Bnt few people know of tbe origin of timothy. Many believe it to be an American grass. This however is a mistake. It was introduced from Europe soon after tbe war of the revolution, and only a few years before clover was transplanted nere rroin tbe old world. It was known in kurope as cats tailor herd grass. The name "timothy" originated in a very singular way. Timothy Hanson, a prominent Quaker, residing near Dover, Delaware, imported the first seed in about 1788 and cultivated it on his farm. His enterpris ing neighbors watched the growth of the new grass, and the next year his Quaker brethren, who are always accustomed to speak of a " Friend" by using .the first name, went to bny "Timothy's seed." Chester county farmers came and bought it, aud the name was finally transformed into " timothy seed," which it has since retained on this side of the Atlantic tbe country over. The first clover seed was brought over from Europe in i ,Vi by Ualeh Rirfc, of near lork. Pa., bnt was not generally cultivated until Boine years later. DEATH OF MRS.

They doubtless thought they had a sheltered spot, but they were watched all the while by a party of haymakers, who at first very seriously contemplated carrying away their clothes, and thus leaving them the chance of making their way borne as best they could. And what a pity it is that they didn't carry ont their resolution an that the young misses would have been compelled to parade their Bhauielcssness before tbe public. DEATH OF WILLIAM BECKER.
