morning, some time before church hours,
a party of them, armed with crowbars,
forced an entrance into the basement sto

of this movement; wisely resolved, in or

Anticipation. A man by the name of
Murray was to have been executed in
Philadelphia on Friday last, but on the
morning of the day was reprieved. The
people, however, who had got up a dying
speech and confession, together with a

for the occasion, not willing to lose their

infuriated ninb from their homes and
property in Philadelphia, to seek shelter
and protection among the farmers of our
county.' Their numbers, previous to this
influx, had become in some places troub

considering the circumstances of the case,
may be borne with but the first indica

we feel confident will, call forth a rigid
enforcement of the statute against the
admission of blacks into our boundaries."

Melancholy Accident. On Thursday
last, eleven young persons, seven gentle
men and four ladies, residents of Brid
port and Addison, in this State, started
on an excursion for the purpose of gath
erinir blackberries. In order to arrive at
the place where the berries were expect
ed to be found, they were obliged to pass
over a portion of Lake Champlain. I In
they attempted very imprudently to do in
an old anil leaky fish boat. They had
proceeded but a short distance from
shore, when, melancholy to relate, the
boat filled with water, and nine of the
eleven, five gentlemen and four ladies,
before assistance could be obtained, in
the midst of life and pleasure, and with
scarcely a moment's warning, met a wa
tery grave. The other two saved them
selves by swimming ashore. On Friday
night seven of the bodies had been found.
The gentleman who was said to be the
best swimmer in the company was drow
ned; when found, was hooked up with
three of the young ladies still clinging to
him with so firm a grasp as to render it
difficult to separate them.

Curious fact in Natural History. A
snake nine in-hes in lonoih, was found
in the cellar of the Hon. David E. Evens
of this village, suspended by the tail from
a spider s web, shnpen like, an inverted
pyramid. The reptile hung frooi the
apex by a knot tied in its tail, and like
another Gulliver, was "being teased" and
preyed upon by. its Lilliputian enemies,
the spiders. We profess to be able to
see as far into a mill-stone as the most
hawk-eyed of our learned Thebans, but
we confess that we should be terribly
puzzled were we required to describe the
precise process by which his snakeshiri
was thus suspended in durance vile.

Important hint to Farmers. A gen
tleman, residing between ibis town and
Boston, who has been making some agri
cultural experiments, requests us to men
tion, for the benefit of other agricuhur
ists, the result of his experience during
the present season in the use of manure.
In September last he spread a quantity
of stable manure on part of a meadow;
and February he manured the remainder
of the field in a similar manner. The
crop of grass on that part which was ma
nured in September has turned out re
markably heavy, while from that manur
ed in February a very light crop indeed
has been gathered, lie accounts fat
this difference in the produce of the same
field, by the fact, that the manure spread
in February prevented the rain from
reaching the roots of the grass. Tho
moisture was retained by the manure, and
was evaporated on the first sunny or win
dy day; whereas, during the wintet
months, the moisture does not evaporate
so speedily, but has time to soak into tho
ground. Preston Pilot.
ffT'It is a fact that cannot be too gen
erally known, that if the wound made by
the bite of a snake be immediately suck
ed, the poison is mostly extracted, and
the danger averted. In some of the
French Hospitals, women are specially
employed to suck wounds, and extract
poison; which is always attended with
good effects to the patients, and no inju
ry to the operator.
