County of Clinton and State of Pennsylvania: Tbe Grand Inquest inquiring for said County at the January term, A. D. 1800, respectfully report as follows: That fifteen bills were presented for consideration, ten of which we returned as true bills, and five ignoramus. We examined the jail and Conrt House. Tbe jail we found to be in a remarkably clean condition, wHob reflects great credit on Sheriff Leahy. We extend onr congratulations to the Commissioners of the County for some needed improvements in the Conrt House. We understand the oost of heating tbe jail with beaters, eta., and the repairs connected therewith yearly are no small matter, therefore we recommend the introduction of steam. There being no water closet in tbe private departments of the Sheriff's residence, we recommend that one be placed there without delay. Tbe Commissioners, Prothonotary and Recorder's offices sre in wsnt of more files for the preservation of important papers connected with their respective offices, and recommend tbe Commissioners to furnish them. We recommend that tbe Prothonotary and Recorder's offices be furnished with stationary wash stands connecting with the city water works. We also recommend that the Commissioners examine into tbe ventilation of tbe Conrt House banding and see if it cannot be greatly improved. There is another very important recommendation whioh we wish to call the attention of tbe Commissioners to which sbonld be attended to at onee, that Is the Grand Jury room; the tip staff most stand at the top of tbe stairs, and witnesses on tbe stairs, whioh Is very uncomfortable and in winter very cold, therefore we recommend the Grand Jury room be partitioned off for their convenience, and if they find the room then too email for the Grand Jury, then pat lo an areb at tbe door of tbe adjoining room. The concrete pavement in front of the. Court House on the lower side, needs repairing as soon as the weather permits. The road leading from lsaao Packer's to Queen's Ran is reported to be in terrible condition. " . That portion of tbe Bald Eagle, Nittany, Brush and Peons' Valley Turnpike road between Cedar Spings and the county bridge at Flemington is in bad condition at various points and needs repairing. Tbe crossing of tbe Beeck Creek railroad at Mill Hall is in bad oondition, it being almost impossible to drive across witb safety. Lastly, we recommmend that the Commissioners psy no costs in discharged esses irom Aldermen or Justices of the Peace, unless ordered to do so by the court. Tbsnks are tendered District Attorney Brangard for bis promptness In furnishing bills, etc Thanks are also dne to Wm. H. Hay, our efficient tip staff, who attended to our wants in a bnsiness like manner. Respectfully submitted. R. R. Bridoenb, Foreman. Attest: H. T. Jarrett, Clerk. A Successful Institute. A correspondent writing from Howard ssys the Farmers' Institute now in session at thst place is a sueoess. Tbe practical Instructions of Messrs. Terry and Slsson are especially valuable and interesting. Tbey will both be at tbe Mill Hall insti-tnte and will put In fall time tbere. Every farmer sbonld bear them. REGULATORS AT WORK.

Pittshttrg, Jan. 8.-Hookston, Beaver county, Pa, was thrown into the wildest excitement last night by, the appearance of a gang of regulators. They called at the residence of Johnston Calhoun, one of the oldest and wealthiest and best known residents of Beaver county, and demanded that he make amends for his alleged brutality to his wife. Tbey called upon him to come out on the street. He first refused, but was finally induced to make his appearance. The regulators then seized him, and placing him on a rail started on a march through the streets of the town. The constable and others attempted to interfere, bnt tbe men wero determined. A oonstant fuailade of shooting from revolvers and shot-guna was kept up while they marched through the streets and aronnd the square where Calhoun resides. Calhoun- is a very large man. At first he fought desperately, then pleaded lustily for mercy, appealed to his neighbors to protect him, and finally offered the regulators any money they would name to release him. Tbey refused bis money, and then bounced him ou a rail around the town for nearly half an hour, and only desisted when their strength bad given out. By tbis time be was badly hurt and terribly frightened, and upon his promise to treat his wife better in the future, be was tossed from the rail and allowed to go into hia house. Calhoun is over 60 years of age, and his wife is young and quite handsome and, it is said, he has been insanely and nnjustly jealous of her. Th* Third Wight.
