tention to the fact, that never was
there greater inducement to per
sons to engage in the business of
supplying timber for the Steam
Mill in this pjace, than is now of
fered by its enterprisirig proprie
tors, Messrs. Tannahill & Laven
der. The prices which they pay
for timber, and to those who want
the facilities for its conveyance to
water, the means proposed lo be
furnished by them for the purchase
of team, &c, must necessarily
make it a business of considerable
profit to those who may be dis
posed to embark in it. The
offer for all timber (merchantable)
from 6 to 7 dollars per thousand
a price which would realize ti

Tannahill & Lavender, is, we un

attributed in no small degree, the
prosperity of our town. By their

Truth is stranger than Fiction
Under this ominous head, the
Hamilton Gazette, (published at
Stevensburgh, Ind.) gives the fol-
"In June, 1833, there arrived
at Stevensburgh a laboring man,
about 35 years of age, who soon
alter engaged himself to lake
charge of the farm of Samuel
James, Esq. of this village. He
represented himself to be from
Orange county, M. Y. by name
Alexander Jackson. After living
with Mr. James until January,
1834, he purchased a lartn about
tune miles distant from this place,
and shortly afterwards offered bis
hand in marriage to a young wo
mau who resided in Mr. James!
family, an adopted daughter ol
Mr. James; in fact, she went by
the name of Sarah James, and no
person in this vicinity knew, un
til recently, but that she was a
natural dauguter of that gentle
man. Mr. James objected to the
match, but Jackson represented
hitnseil'as a relation of the Presi
dent of the United States; and be
ing a good looking, and with al)
an intelligent person, Miss J. was
pleased with him, and urged her
father to consent to their marriage.
In the May following they were
married, and Mr; James gave
Jackson a handsome farm, ad
joining his own, as Sarah's por
tion, on which Jackson built him
self a house, dud they lived very
happily together. Since their
marridge Mrs. J. has borne her
husband two fine boys, the young
est being at present but two mouths
old. But let us give the history
ol Jackson, as now discovered by
ids own confession, and by the
appearance of a person in this
cuinuiunity, who has turned all
his domestic joys into a cup of bit

left the scene of his disgrace,

Singular Fotality A dream.
On Sunday night last, a workman
by the name ol' Cunningham, who
was employed in the glass factory
of Mr. Sevrhour. BrookKn.
dreamed that he saw the clouds
roll away in tlie sky the hea
vens opening and a being like
the Son of Man descending to the
earth, surrounded with numerous
spirits and augels. tn the morn
ing when he awoke, he told his
"tie ot nis aream, and said lo
lier, "My dear wife, I do believe
I am called hence; I feel that my
day is come."
"Oh! now, husband, why should
you talk so? It is only a dream."
He resumed his composure, sat
down to breakfast, eat silently
with his family, and then rose to
go to his work. Before he left
his apartment, he loaked back,
and beheld his wife gazing after
him. He immediately returned
and bade his wife an affectionate
farewell. "Farewell," said he,
"my children, for . I do believe 1
am called hence, and shall never
see you again."
His wife endeavored to SraootU
over the grief which preyed upon
his mind in consequence of the
dream. 'Twouid not do. He
went to his work at Mr. Seymour's
factory. He vas attentive as
usual but extremely depressed in
spirits. But the denouement
came at last. In the middle of the
afteruoon he was caught by the
machinery and his whole body
torn to pieces.
The singular incident is exact
ly true in ever particular. We
had the facts yesterday from a
gentleman who received them
from Mr. Seymour himself. Of
us truth there is no doubt. A
great excitement is created in
Brooklyn. Can any philosopher
or divine explain the phenomenon
of his dream, his presentiment of
death, bis feelings, or the sad ca
tastrophe? Will .Prpisor Silli
man, or any other avan, go and
examine Mrs. Cunningham and
her children? lt should be inquir
ed into. JV. Y. Herald.
Awful QccurretiCt ly Jirt On

milled great destruction, and pro
duced moie melam holy calamity
than perhaps has ever recurred in
this tommy fi;h) the homing of
a single mansion.- rl he fire br ke
out at a late hour in lhe night, and
before its progress was dUcoVcr-
ed, it succeeded in the entire de
struction of the dwelling house,
together with its contents, which
were likewise consumed. Btit
the above losses, however consid
erable they may at first seem, are
nothing comparatively to what re
mains to be told, Esq. C. and big
wife, together with three of their
children between the ages of one
and seven years, likewise prrished
amidst the devouring flames. The
evidence that exists is the fartt
that their bones were to be seen
bleaching upon the ruins next
morning; and that they were not
to be found by their friends. Tlwe
balance of this unfortunate fami
ly, consisting of some five or six
children, together with some ser
vants, succeeded in making iheir
escape, it is said that Airs. C. at
one time effected an escape from
the burning nuns, but on recollec
ting that her children were sleep
ing amidst the flames, she imme
diately yielded to the impulse of
woman's generous nature, and in
the plentitude of maternal afiec

Unhappy Disclosure A few
evenings since, fwo young men

called for refreshments A Iter

were to be abstracted. In tie

he repaired to the bank and ap

had heard. Several checks had
already beep paid.-The teller

length hit upon one of doubtful
character. After a rigid scrutiny,
he pronounced it spurious. The
teller, and his informant repaired
instantly to the oyster cellar, where
the plan had been concerted. Oti
entering, the teller wa.kerf up to a
young gentleman, whom he re
cognised as the person who had
presented the check, and observ

morning is a forgery." The culT
prit, conscience smitten, confess

The affair having reached the
ears of the merchant, whose name
had been used, he insisted on
knowing the name of the offender,
that he might be brought to con
dign punishment. The teller re
fused the merchant insisted, and,
at length, grew furious-abused'
the teller threatened to expose
him, &tc. The teller, finding it
impossible to appease him, invited
him into a private room. The
urgency of the merchant here re

criminal, he was quietly informed
that it was his own son. He It ft
