THE WOfiK OF CONGRESS YESTERDAY A large shipment of old worn-out and generally broken down horses from London a few days ago, revealed the fact that they were iotended for butchers in France and Germany, by whom tbey were to be con verted into juicy steaks and appetizing bologna sausages. What Senator Allison knows, says the New York Herald, is that he has seven full years in the Senate before him, with no one to molest him or make bim afraid. He was sixty-one years old the other day, and will be sixty-eight before bis Senatorial life now assured runs out. That is a good thing to know. The announcement that ex Chief Justice Agnew in the evening of his long and useful life is threatened with blindness will be heard with sorrow by his fellow citizens all over the State. No more respected jurist ever sat ou the bench of the Supreme Court, and it is sad that this affliction should weigh him down in his old age. Passed its Eighth Milestone, DuBois Dally Courier.

Clinton i county is Democratic and the tat>k of maintaining journals of the opposite political faith therein has not been an eaey onft, ' and the fact that they have so well suo-1 ceeded is greatly to the credit of all, both j father and sons, whose ability and enter-: prise have given to the Republicans of! Clinton an organ of which they may well; be proud and which they should still more ! liberally support. ; C banco of Venae Or anted.

Mr. Kincaid made.no effort to escape while he was at liberty, and announced his intention to surrender himself to the authorities in case his pistol shot should result fatally.; Within an hour after bis arrest Kincaid was so prostrated with nervous exhaustion that it was necessary to call his regular physician, Dr. Harrison, who remained with him the most of the day.

The Lancaster Examiner says the market in that section is showing great activity. Some buyers arc at work purchasing the new crop, paying from 5 to 15 cents for wrappers, while exceptionally fine crops j bring a few cents more, and considerable 1 quantities were delivered at the ware- \ houses on Saturday. But the buyers who , have been purchasing most largely, have, ! tbey nay, ceased operations because of tbe piescnt unsatisfactory conditiou of the crop. J. Gust Zook says that ho has stop- | ped because much of the crop is badly \ dam need with stem and black rot caused by the wet eeaeon and too early stripping. , lie will suspend operations until after tbe I crop 18 sweated, and says that farmers; should look after their tobacco carefully and re-handle it after sweating. Those | who were nut too hasty iu taking their I tobacco from the poles may have escaped I the danmgvs others have suffered. I Stanley'* Own Book. Mr. Stanley has advanced so far with hi* account of his adventures in achieving tbe rcscuo of Einiu as to be able to announce tho title of bis book.

NEW YORK MURDER MYSTERY Efforts of the Police to Clear Up the Foul Crime Rewarded by Success.

The estate of the late Dr. David Hostot-ter, tbe great Bitters man of Pittsburg, has at last got into the courts and a - con-tost is impending which dates back to a transaction in the early life of the parties in Lancaster county. A sister of the great bitters king is still a resident of this county and as one of the parties to tho suit tbe probable heir to a great fortune. The story reads like a romance. Jacob HoBtetter, the father of Dr. D. Hostetter, was a resident of Eatt Hempneld towrs'iip, Lancaster county. He oarried on business in a small way in Lancaster and, as recent developments have shown, was the discoverer,of the famous reoipe out of whioh Hostetter's bitters was-manufaotured and which has made millionaires many times over of its possessors. Aocording to tbe allegations of the plaintiffs in the litigation which has just been commenced, David Hostetter by means not now understood on February 17, 1838, got a transfer of tbis reoipe to himself from Jacob Hostetter, his father, and on this was fonnded the great bitters house of Hostetter & -Smith, of Pittsburg, which made many millionaires of both tbe proprietors. Jacob Hostetter had three children-David, now deceased, Mrs. Hoofstetler, at present living in Millersville, and Mrs. Stoner, of Pittsburg. Tbe surviving sisters allege tbat their father, Jacob Hostetter, was of unsound mind on February 17.1858, when the transfer was made, tbat he bad been an imbecile for some time previous, and that if David Hostetter got tbe transfer of the recipe from his- father he procured it . from a lunatic by fraud, and that it was therefore void, tbe rec.;pe remaining part of Jacob's estate, to which the two sisters were entitled to an equal share with their brother. Tbey therefore claim tbat they are entitled each to a third of tbe immense profits arising from the manufacture of the bitters under their father's recipe. A short time ago Mrs. Hoofstetler and Mrs. Stoner, the surviving executors of their father's will, gave formal notioe, through their counsel, Brown & Hensel, of Lancaster, and George C. Wilson, of the Allegheny bar, to the administrators of David Hostetter, tbat tbey would insist on an accounting of all the profits made from the reoipe during the long period which has elapsed since the time of the alleged transfer, over thirty years. At Pittsburg, last week, the personal estate of David Hostetter, amounting to $5,899,459, was distributed among the heirs, bat the Court directed tbe administrators not to lay out any money to tbe widow and children without taking a refunding bond which wonld protect tbe heirs in the event of the pending litigation being deoided against the estate. The Teal estate of Dr. David HoBtetter, aggregating a large amount, is still undisposed of by the administrator. Tbe present litigation whioh will doubtless attract the attention of tbe entire country, grows out of an accidental discovery made very recently, up to whioh time the sisters were in entire ignorance of the existeuco of the transfer of the reoipe from Jacob Hostetter to bis son David. Up to that time it was supposed tbat David was tbe discoverer of the recipe. When the estate of G. Wash. Smith, who bad been a partner of Dr. Hostetter, was being settled, a dispute arose over tbe partnership accounts. Dr. Hostetter claiming that Smith's estate was only entitled to the profits arising from the manufacture of the bitters and tbat Smith bad no property interest in the reoipe itself. In support of his position Dr. Hostetter produced in Court the famous transfer from Jacob Hostetter to David, showing the latter to be tbe sole owner. Tbis was the first intimation tbe sisters had-aa to its existence, and tbey immediately began to make investigations which have resulted in the present litigation. Eminent counsel bave been retained by both Bides and a big legal fight is on the tapis. New Corporations Chartered.
