Mr. John Ayres, brakeman on the branch passenger train, had two fingers of his right hand smashed on Saturday, while leading wood at Blairsville Intersection. The jury in the case of the Commonwealth vs. John Y. Smitten, for barratry, returned a verdict of acquittal, and divided the costs between the defendant and prosecutor. Pittsburgh has developed a water ring. Water works there, which were estimated to cost §2,294,478, have already absorbed nearly five millions and two million more are demanded to continue the job. An exhibition of the West Indiana public school will be given in the Normal School chape!, <:n Tuesday evening, March 28, 1876, beginning promptly at 7J o'clock. All ^are cordially invited to attend. A pauper named McPherson, who was incarcerated in the Clearfield coun. ty jail, in January last, for attempting the East Ohio Conference will meet at Steubenviile. Annie McGaire, aged fifteen, the girl who fired Mr. Cunningham's house on six different occasions, at Livermore, of which mention was made last week, wascommitte-i to jail in Green burg on Monday. It is su. posed she is slightly der.iii'-'pd.aad war-subsequently removed to the department for that clas.s at the Poor House. In his lecture on Tuesday evening, Dr. Ftiirfield said, iu his opinion, the coming Ceii'enuial ExhibH'on would be incomplete if the Commission would 11 it have au Indian wigwam and an old log cabin, such as our frontiersmen first lived in, in Pennsylvania, and as some of them still live in, erected on the grounds. A land slide occurred on the branch road, at the Blacklick curve, on Friday last a short time before the noon train was due at that, place. A youag man named Weir, who lives near by, B aw the slide and signalled the train, which was stopped just in time to avoid a wreck. The traiu was delayed about an hour by the occurrence. On Monday of last week, a very distressing accident occurred in Alloona, whereby a little daughter o George Detwiler was burned in such a manner as to cause her death. During the absence of the mother the, child drew close to Ihe fire, aud from some coals in the grate, her clothes took fire, and burned her in such a manner as to cause her death in a short time thereafter. Samuel R.(?) Smith, of the Indiana Messenger, says the Punxsutawney Valley Spirit, "is favorably spoken of as a candidate for the Legislature iu Indiana county." So! That is news to us, we had been informed that Samuel A. Smith, of the Messenger, had his weather eye on Sheriff. but then he is big enough for both. Burgess, Coroner, Legislator, Sheriff, Statesman. That fixes Samuel pretty well. Bully for Smith. There is a man living within six miles of Wayuesburg, between fifty and sixty years of age, who is u well- to-do farmer and has several thousand dollars at interest, who was never put side the limits of Greene county but once in his life, aud that was years ago when he.went over to Miltsboro, just over the county line into Washington county, for salt. He never saw a steamboat nor a railroad, and it has been as long a [.eriod-as-twelve years that he was not even in Waynesburg.

Moody and San key, is called to meet in New be realized for the same, as the demand will likely be. equal to the supply.— Clearfif.ld Journal. Mr. Moody says man is a failure. Probably Mr. Moody never saw a young man play base ball all day, and billiards half the night, and get up the next morning and jaw round for an hour because his mother didn't put more stiffening in his shirt bosom.

The bill for the formation of new counties (now pending at Harrisburg) is much opposed. All that is essential under the bill, as it now stands, to secure the formation of a new county, is to have a petition signed by 1,500 persons, an area of four hundred square miles, without having the boundary line within ten miles of any county seat; a population of 20,000 within the area of the proposed new county, and two-thirds of the vote within the same. It is said that schemes are already being concocted, which can be carried out under the House bill if it becomes a law, to divide Eria, Warren, Crawford, Mercer, Veuango, Butler, Armstrong, Clarion, Indiana, Clearfield, Allegheny, Washington, Greene, Bradford, Tioga, Lycoinmg, Luzern, Lancaster, Dauphin, Berks, Bucks and Montgomery. The above is a synopsis of the new county bill. It has been amended so as to require a majority vote of the citizens of the county to allow a part to secede for the purpose of forming a new county. In another shape it would be an act of great injustice to many counties in the State, especially Indiana county. Just think of one section of the county seceeding and leaving the remaining portion to pay the county debt that the seceding part had helped to make, and that is no more, nor less than what the new county bill virtually proposed to do. It would be a law conferring the same privilege upon parts of counties—the right of secession—that was denied to the Southern States. As a principle, there is no difference. In this more;than useless Legislature it is hard to tell what shape the bill may get into before it passes and becomes a law. A Legislature that has already trampled upon the rights of the people in so unjust a manner, as the present one has done in the repeal of the Local Option law, will scruple at nothing, if there is auy money in it. ! liquor without license.

The eqniuotical storm w hich we are experiencing at present gives us sufficient north-westers to keep people moving along the street at a business gait at least. Messrs. John Bruce, Paul Graff and Eev. Lauct^ are absent attending M. E. Conference at Canton, Ohio. Messrs. Thos. Maher, Geo. McCune and John Curry, who were out on the Engineer Corps at work on the P. & N. road, are at home. It seems that they have not received any pay for several mouths and are not likely to. Chief engineers Bird and Daugherty have brought suit against the parties who were at the head of this enterprise for conspiracy to defraud. ; A:number of our colored men had a debate recently in their church. The question was, "Which is the most destructive element, fire or water?" Brackson Jackson was on the affirmative side and Abram Johnston on the negative. It is said that the question was a very lively manner. In a flhort.time they propose to have another debate, which, no doubti will be well attended. ever who York City, OB the 29th and 30th inst. It is expected that it will be the largest meeting of the character ever held in nd a Ad- this country. Each church to send a to murder Dr. died in his cell If of the Johns, of Peunfield, on Monday night of last week. He was about 54 years of age. Last week was a busy week in Court. There is a general complaint that too many petty cases are being brought before the Court to occupy its time, this is the case, is there no means putting a stop to this drain county funds ? The Philadelphia Timese&ys the State representation to the National Convention consists of two delegates from each of the thirty-four Congressional districts and two delegates for each U. S. Senator. The Times would do well to consult their Almanac to find out how many Congressional districts we have in this State. The Pittsburgh Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, which has been in session in Canton, Ohio, for a week past, decided yesterday to divide by the State line. Both the Conferences will meet in the fall. The Pittsburgh Conference will meet at the Butler street Church, Pittrburgh, and delegate minister and layman dress all communications to Richard C. Morse, Secretary, N. W. Cor. 26th Street and Fourth Avenue, N. Y. Pota'o bugs promise to make it as lively for the growers of this favorite of the soil as ever. II is hoped that the> will take up their line of march for another country this year, but the fact that they have not in the past is evidence that they are well pleased with this country. It is claimed that potato bugs are the worst things to multiply in all the world. Those that have noticed passing events certify that the unweaned potato bug of this morning has an endless flock of grand children and great grand children the next morning. The Philadelphia Inquire of the 18tb inst., says: There took place a day or two ago, from a house on German street, the funeral of a woman who weighed, the last time she was on the scale, over four hundred pounds, and whose dimensions increased very materially since. It took eleven men to handle the coffin, and to get the latter out of the house the door jams had to be removed. Notwithstanding the immense size and weight of the woman, she was able to do washing, and performad that work for a livelihood until within a short time previous to her death. Recently a widow, past the prime of life, sued a prominent citizen of Tidioute for the amount of a note, about $20,000 which had been discovered after the death of her husband.

The worst case of a liar . we heard of, was the young man visited this place on Friday last, and tried to create a sensation by stating that a man had been killed that morning near Marion. His story was substantially as follows: He stated that he and his partner were boiler makers, and had came from Pittsburgh one day last week to this place, and from here had gone to Plumville, where they had repaired a couple of boilers for seme manufacturing firm in that vicinity. From that place they went to Punxsutawney, at which place they also done some work in their line, and on Thursday left that place for Indiana, but could only get as far as Marion, where they stopped over night. On Friday morningy-in order to get to Indiana in time to take the evening train to Pittsburgh, tbey concluded not to wait on the stage, but hired another conveyance, in the shape of a buck-board, and with the owner of the vehicle as driver, they started for this place about half past nine o'clock. According to the story of the young man, when they reached the bridge on this side of Marion, the driver thought best to return and get s-osne robes, as the weather was cold. This was agreed to, and in turning his horses, the wagon was thrown over, one of the horses and the yoang man's being precipitated into Conrt Proceedings. Commonwealth vs. Samuel S. Smith.

No doubt the, object was a double one, they probably desired to show their culinary ability as well as to gratify the appetites of their -gallants. As the supper was prepared by themselves, no doubt, after this supper, if any of them propose they will be' accepted at once as it is said to have been well prepared.

McFarland & Son, Triece, creek, and driver was thrown out upon the ground, his head striking a stone and killing him instantly, the narrator gentleman claimed that the note was not a just one, and contested the matter in the courts. Fortune favored the widow and she won the suit. Soon after a young man began to court her and a few weeks ago they were privately married. After the marriage had been consummated the citizen carried the case up to the Supreme Court, where he got a decision in his favor. It is supposed that this dampened the young man's love, at any rate the whole family have disappeared from Tidioute society. The number of rafts on the West Branch and its tributaries, that will be gent to market this season, will reach about 209. This is a wonderful decrease. In 1874 over 2,000 rafts were ruia to market from the same localities, and in 1875 about 1,300, of .which perhaps, some 250 rafts are slill unsold; but, thes? are at the lower markets, and cannot be made available above' Marietta. In view of this is but fair to presume that the lumber, that will be run this spring will find a ready market along the river between here P nd Marietta, and that good prices will however, escape injury being fortunate enough to He said he did not but thought "Josh." He know the man's name, the people called him also stated that one of the horses had been killed, and that the people had taken the dead man back to Marion. What possessed this young man to tell such a deliberate lie is beyond our comprehension; but he had better be careful in the future, or his big stories may be the means of getting him into trouble. Last week being court week, a good many people from the vicinity of Marion were in town, and this story created quite an excitement among them, and they were left in suspense as to whom the unfortunate man was, until the arrival of the stage in the evening, when their minds were set at rest by being informed that the story was entirely false. . ., After it became known that-there was no truth in the story, and that the man who told it was from Pittsburgh, some said that the "Penn Point" man of the Pittsburgh Leader must have broken loose, and-had Strayed in this direction. _ . - .
