The Low Rate Excursion to tho Popular Seaside KeaortH. From present-indications the, Monday, August ltith, four to Atlantic City, Cape May, Long Branch, or Ooean Grove, bids fair to be a "red letter day" for the excursionists. Tho fast express time and excellent train equipments of this company is alone a pronounced attraction, while the exceptionally low rates come within tho roach of all. Speoial train will leave at 5:30 a. m. and excursion liokots will bo sold to Atlantic City or Capo May from Lock Haven at a rate of $4.75 Tickets will also be sold to Sea Isle City, Ocean City, Avalou, Anglesea, Wildwood, or Holly Beach at tho same rates as quoted to Atlantic City, or Cape May. * Excursion tiokets to Long Branch or Ocean Grove will be sold at a rato of 50 cent additional to above rate. These tickets will be good to return until Aug-uBt 28, inolusive, on all regular trains except limited express train, and admit of stopping over in Philadelphia within limit. The fact of tho Camp Meeting ceremonies being at their height in Ocean Grove will prove an attractive feature, while such a rare opportunity for visiting all these much-talked-of resorts may not present itsolf soon again, and this is tbo chance to embrace one of tho Pennsylvania Railroad's spocial train trips.

The Splendid Boating: Coarse of the loin Clab-SometblDK About a Popular Ex-Shetin and a Faithful Ex-Editor-A Word About tho Present and Kx-Poetmaater and Everybody's Friend Will Dowart. [Special Correspondence.] Suxbcry, Aug. 7."-There is much to see and study in this ancient borough, and the visitor if hs is of an inquiring turn of mind, cannot fail to be edified and delighted. It is the oldest town in this part of tho State, so far as white settlements are concerned, the Moravians having a mission hero as early as 1747, Tbey soon afterwards established a smith shop, which was aarricd on for several years and was greatly appreciated by tho Indians, because they could get their firearms repaired when out of order. Shamo-kin was also the seat of an Indian vice-King named Shlk*elli-my, who was stationed here by tho Six Nations to go vara the Indians; and if the accounts left by the Moravian missionaries are to be credited, he was in every respeot a "good Indian," and saved the scalp of many a white man. Tho old king died December 17, 174S, aud he received a Christian burial at the bands of the Moravians. Bishop Zeisborgor, was present when he died, and left an ac~ count of his death, which is on file amoug tho Moravian archives at Bethlehem. A wooden coffin was made for him and be waa laid away in the Indian burial ground near where Fort Augusta was afterwards built. Tho old chief is . supposed to have been the first Indian who was honored with a coffin at this place on his departure for "the happy hunting groundd." Speaking of this remarkable aborigine reminds mo that Shamokin wjis a famous place for- collectors of Indian antiquities, and many raro specimens have been gathered here. M. L. Hendricks is the possessor of a very fine collection made by himself. In 1853 his father owned the farm on whioh tho cemetery was located and as young Hendricks had a taste for acquiring Indian relics, he opened many graves aud was richly rewarded for his labor. In one grave whioh contained the crumbling remains of a oofiin, bo found about 400 beads of glass, bone and amber, besides many other trinkets, including a copper modal adorned with a portrait of George tho Third, a rusted musket barrel, knifo and tomahawk. As no other graves contained such a large and valuable collection of trinkets, Mr. Hendricks entertains the opinion that Shik-elli-my was laid there, and as he has a piece of tho coffin, there seems to be no doubt but what he is right in his ^conclusions. All theso valuable antiqultios are kept in a neat wooden oase, with a glass top, which waa manufactured out of pine timbor found among the crumbling ruins of Fort Augusta many years ago. lie takes pride in exhibiting it to visitors and antiquarians are always dolighted in examining it. Tho hills which surround Suubury aro bold and picturesque; and with tho wide river in front of the town, the scenery is charming in tho extroaio. There is no finer boating placo in the country than on tho pool of the dam, and tho lola Club is ono of tho institutions of the towu. Tbey own an ample outfit of shells, and tho sport is exhilarating as well as exciting Tho dam is spanned by a gracoful aud oostly iron bridge erected by the Reading Railroad Company, and a public bridge by private enterprise Ik talked of lor the c: n venienco of Suydor couniy reside^;*. Such a htruciuro, it is believed would nr-d groatly to the trade of tho town, and it will probably be built before many years. Tho buzz of tbo politician is already hoard on the streots of the town, and as a numbor of couuty officers aro to bo elected this fall, it is believed that tho campaign will bo a sharp and exciting one. A Sheriff is to bo elected, and Jacob Kromcr, of Watsontown, will bo one of tho Ropublicau candidates. Ho served one term three years ago and mado such a popular officer that on retiring ho was promptly nominated for Treasuior and elected, lie is jtifcf now closing his term, but lib: irieuda throughout the county itisitt thM be shall go ha ok into tho Sheriff's nfibjf\ uud as his strength in great there is a p.Hi- wu heard by many, aoveral cattle minium looso in the woods have been killed aud partly devoured. If this report is true a riug hunt should bo organized and tho brute hunted down. The rcoun-; ain range ontends southward for hundreds of miles and the panther evidently oomes north on a summer vaoation. This country has been remarkably clear of such visitations, but the report goes to show that tho paDther race is not extinct. He IntiignHiitiy Denlee the Allegation Tbat He Gave Orders to Have the Current Stopped-He �ajs He Was 1'rewnt to Make a Scientific Examination of the Brain. New York, Aug. 7.-Dr. Spitzka, who was present at the exeoution of William Kemmler at Auburn prison yesterday makes the following statement: "The aspersion attributed to a phyai-oian from Buffalo tbat the undersigned ordered the currentB Btopped or in any way directed the steps rendered necessary at the Kemmler exeontion is utterly unfounded. No one in the execution chamber knew or could know anything about the voltage, nor did any one order the oar-rent tamed off. It was turned off in accordance with a previous understanding. Dr. Carlos MacDonald and myself (between whom and myself complete harmony existed), on being asked by the warden what time should be taken, agreed to fifteen seconds and actually seventeen were allowed to elapse. When Kemmler's death appeared doubtful, I suggested in a hurried way, to the warden to have it instantly turned on again, and it waa the warden who gave the order then and there. I went to Auburn solely to make an examination of the brain, and not as an assistant executioner. The dynamo, as judged by the action of Kommler'a body, acted very irregularly. The source of this it will be interesting to ascertain, as well as the animuB whioh dictated the gratuitous and untrue statement of the person alluded to, if really made by him. As an avowed opponent, and as one known to be such of the electrical method, 1 went to Anburn. Under these circumstances it wero scarcely consistent for me to volunteer as performer of that method. Had either my associate, Dr. Carlos MacDonald, or myself been able to anticipate Buob misstatements bmug made, we oertainly should have declined to aet in the medical capacity whioh we alone held. My sole suggestion was ooncided with by all' present. The turning on of the seoond current was diotated by humanity, in view of the doubt as to the oomplete destruction of life. Respectfully, E. C. Spitzka." PUNGENT POT POUKRI. A MlsceUaneatu HJlxtere of Seaaa and Mon-enie Scissored and Scribbled. A skunk will smell as bad whether yon call it a skunk or Mephntis Ameri-oanus.

Comments of the British Preee, London, Aug. 7. - The Chronicle, commenting upon the killing of Kemmler by electricity, says the scene was worthy of the darkest chambers of the inquisition in the sixteenth oentury. The 1 imes says it would be impossible to imagine a more revolting exhibition. It ad-vocatos a lethal chamber in preference to electricity. The Standard says: "The scene can be described as a disgrace to humanity. Itt] will send a thrill of indignation through, out the civilized world. We cannot believe that Americans will allow the electrical execution act to Btand. Tho Lumber Trade Depression.
