Editors you will permit an Bumble writer to intrude a Little upon j our columns in times like these with a Plain unvarnished though s id tale. To Day saturday april 18, quiet Villiage. New Berlin Union county pa., was thrown into violent confusion by an incident which reminded one More of the Days of the Spanish inquisition than arts to be expected in a land where enlightenment and civilization fostered by the most extensive Freedom and Justice Are said to have Lull your communicant was quietly attending to his own business when suddenly to heard a it tremendous noise. I looked around to see whence it came and to ascertain its cause. I had heard apparently seven or eight Racks like pistol discharges and then noticed men women and children in the greatest consternation and fright Rushing out of Tho three doors of the Large German Befort Ned t and lutheran Church in the Centre of j our town. Although having been a-1 mid excited crowds before i never j witnessed anything to approach j much less eau Tiitu Tife. Bell a a few moments before had apprised me of a a funeral gathering there. Now i thought perhaps the galleries had give j in Way with the crowd but having hurried up towards the place 1 learn red from the first i Paft that a vat 11 Beard were actually pistol shots fired j in the inner Sanctuary before the be j by altar where a peace on Earth and a Good will toward men has been pro a claimed hundreds of times. I made it my business to inquire into a tic ulars from Eye witnesses who de j Velo Pei the following facts j some time ago say four or five months a certain Jamesh Minel of j Snyder co., whose Sisters last remains were interred Here to Days deserted from the army. And now several Days ago a certain sergeant Geb Hart formerly from Centre county who styles himself a member of the u. Provost guard came to the neighbourhood alleging that it was his business to arrest deserters and Send them to Camp. It seems be knew that Hummel would attend a funeral at this place to Day and thought this would be a Nice place to show his prowess and skill in napping deserters. He followed the procession to j the burying place and from Thih of to the Church. While in the Church he again bad Hummel pointed out to Tui and asserted to those we us we re a in the secret with him that Nore was i the place to take him. They tried to dissuade him but of no Avail this a was the place Ito make a chivalric dash. Just before Tho Sermon commenced to walked up to Hummel now sitting quietly in his Pew to do the last pious honors to a dead sister and presented a Colts revolver to his breast mumbling something supposed to have been a you Are my prison Hummel Drew a Sharpens four shooter from his pocket. Meantime Gebhart snapped his Cap which burst to to effect. Hummel then shot Gebhart in the breast. Gebhart snapped his next Cap to no effect. After that each discharged his remaining balls also a or. Smith assistant to Gebhart discharged one Ball. At the excitement had become intense and a the shrieks and cries of unprotected and innocent females and children were almost heartrending. Both Hummel and Gebhart now left the Church. Hummel went to Bis Home whither two physicians soon followed him and found him hung two v and so Ono through the lungs supposed to to Mot Tal and another slight in the aim Gebhart fled Thiol go a by Way towards the Mountain and was discovered a while alter two mites from town. Some men who seem to to rather Friendly to those who Deal in cold steel and blood brought him Back to town and i am told almost made a Demi god of him. I presume if be were Black they would have called him the next hero to John Brown. He showed three Bullet Boles in Bis overcoat which on account of being thickly batted to broke the effectiveness of the balls from hummels inferior weapon As to do him Little or no injury. Whilst i cannot help most unqualified Day condemning Gebhart for his rash and Foolhardy Way of executing Bis official duty for which so far As i know nobody has More than his own word showing neither warrant nor order for such duty i do not mean to defend Hummel in my Humble opinion there is nothing to justify any Man who is not really i a half a Devil to go Prfto a Church or anywhere where there is a crowd of i innocent people to provoke Buch an affray. If Gebhart knew he could not j arrest Hummel without Force Why a did he not attempt it outdoors where he has had the Chance for months Why attack the peace and Harmony of a worshipping congregation ? fortunately the missing balls hit no one of the crowd. There must certainly to a proper or an improper Way for an officer to discharge his duty. If any officer in England would perpetrate such an outrage he would be degraded perhaps shot. Our forefathers rebelled against the tyrannical oppression of a foreign Power but j if such things can pass with the Connivance of our present government the time seems not far Distant when we should wish for even the Rale of a George Iii. But i must forbear writing any More and subscribe myself a Lover of Justice. Wonderful presence of. Iliond. A two take from a French paper de Temps the Nai Rativo of an incident which adds one More proof to the Many already Given of the intelligence and bravery of the parisian populace a few evenings ago says the Tempan omnibus Driver of the Orleans railway named do rid tier was proceeding to Bis mornings work. On crossing the Boulevard Deal hopi Tal near Quot the March earn che Mux horse Market he perceived a shining object at his feet. Thinking to have made some Lucky discovery be Bent Down Ana found it was the Blade of a knife passed through the bars of one of those Iron doors or gratings inserted in the pavement in different parts of the Uburtis of Paris with the intention of throwing a Glimmer of Light into some of the More gloomy passages of Tho catacombs. Bending Down to Beard the voice of some one inside imploring Succour. Hurrying immediately to the nearest Public House where to found some workmen he returned with them to the grating forced it open with the Aid of a Crow bar. A moving spectacle presented itself to their gaze a wide chasm whose Depths was buried Iii darkness Yawn i de before them. At the opening was j the Man who implored assistance clinging to the Side of the Wall with bleeding hands his features convulsed with terror. They seized him by the arms a and lifted him out but no sooner was the unfortunate boing Safe than to. Bent Down Over the aperture i As if trying to perceive some object in the with that marvellous instinct that at times characterizes the parisian populace it was at Oncie understood a that another sufferer at a depth which the obscurity concealed yet remain j de to be delivered. Cords were 1 brought and another unfortunate Hu-1 Man being exhausted even More than a the first was brought to Light. After recovering a Little these men narrated that they were journeying Stone cutters. ,. They had entered the catacombs on monday at about twelve of clock in the morning by the Entrance in the Rue de chateau Des be tiers for the purpose of executing a piece of work underground. Their lamp went out and they bad omitted to furnish themselves with matches. In trying to retrace their Steps they had erred still further in that endless labyrinth they went on at Bap Hazard till half past seven the next morning. Tbs a then perceived a faint Ray of Light glimmering through the trap door above mentioned. Though it was placed seventy feet above the ground the Workman who had managed to preserve the greatest coolness and strength managed by taking Adan Sage of Small projections in the Side of the Wall and by cutting but pieces of mortar with his knife to obtain a bold for the introduction of Bis fingers arid nails to Recti the top. After a Gallant Effort he at last attained the Suo Imit while i amp a amp mrs de unable to follow was lying helpless ground once theron to tried vainly to raise the Iron grating with his knife this failing he passed the Blade through the opening turning it in Bis hand hoping that some one would be at. Traded by jts gleaming. It was by this signal that he saved his own and Bis comrades life. To conclude Dou Voutier the omnibus Driver whose zealous Effort had been crowned with Suee Ess and who had even risked Bis Lifen Bis anxiety to Succour them refused to give his name to the men whose lives be bad saved. It was afterwards Given by Bis employer. 05�?o a Little Boundary War has broken out Between California and he Ney Lakeva Ley. Resistance was made by arms to a service of process by a California sheriff six of his men being won ridged. At last accounts both parties were a Fri conquered and a Efian. The first great negro battle., the Richmon Clear Miner gives the following Laug Libie description of the first great Battle to to fought it is supposed about the Middle of june by the coloured army now being recruited to Supply the places of the 300,000 White t soldiers whose term of service will expire in May a a a the Fate of theme Gro of the White population at the South and of the Northern array respectively will to decided in a Brief font Cost which will occur about the Middle of , and which we will describe As gravely and succinctly As possible. On the first of May fifty thousand negroes who have been previously various Camps of instruction will be debarked at acquit Creek. Pugnacious Joseph Hooker foaming at Tho Mouth from Long delay will organize them into brigades and divisions with the velocity of frenzied impatience. But it will require six weeks of incessant toil to perform this simple feat. It is at last accomplished. The pontoons Are Laid safely and crossed without opposition. To prevent Accident the grand coloured division is put in the Van Greely its commander remains at acquit Creek a with a powerful Glass a after the manner of Burnside. The skirmishers of the grand coloured division Are thrown out. They deploy. A the voice of an1 overseer calling hogs is Beard in a Distant Field. They rally Reserve. No rebels being visible they Are again thrown Forward. They fire at nothing fifty feet in the air and hit it every time. The rebels being thus driven to their earthworks the grand coloured division advances at the de charge to storm the enemy a position and to a carry the Crest at All hazards. Of a sudden the artillery of a. P. Hills command belches Forth a Hurricane of Shell and shrapnel. There is a rising of Wool As of quills upon the fretful Porcupine under the Caps of Dusky brigadier and sooty major generals Thero is a simultaneous effusion of Roeli Fuoua perspiration from fifty thousand Tarry hides there is a display of Ivory like fifty thousand flashes of lightning fifty thousand pairs of charcoal Knees Are knocking together and one Hundred thousand eyeballs Are rolling madly in their sockets like so Many Drunken and distracted Moons dancing in an ebon sky the grand motored division trembles like a mighty Pointer dog on an icy pavement there is a Universal Squall As if All Africa bad been kicked upon. Tho shins and at the self same moment a scattering As if All the blackbirds brows and Buzzards in creation had taken wings at once to a Man the Northern army lies prostrate in the Field asphyxiated by the insufferable a odor bequeathed to the atmosphere by the dark departed Host. For a like cause the rebel army is in full Retreat to Richmond. Solitary and alone with his nose in his hand a. P. Hill surveys the silent a thoughtless boy punished. A i shall never forget writes a correspondent of the agriculturist a lao incident of my Clil Debood by which i was taught to be careful not to wound Tho footings of Tho unfortunate. A number of us school boys were playing by the Road Side on saturday afternoon. When Tho stage coach drove up to a no 0l Bor not Ern and the passenger i Isumu As usual we gathered around it to Obs Rve them. Among the number was an elderly Man with a Cane who got out with much difficulty and when ground he walked with the most curious contortions. His feet turned one Way his Knees another arid Bis whole body looked As though the different members were Independent fit and each other and every one was making motions to suit itself. 1 unthinkingly shouted a look at old rattle Bones a and the other boys took up the cry with mocking laughter while the poor Man turned his head with an expression of pain which i never can forget. Just then to my Surprise and horror my father came around the Corner and immediately stepping up to the stranger Shook his hands warmly assisted him to walk to our House which was but at a Little distance. I could enjoy no More play that afternoon and when Tea time came i would gladly have hid myself but i knew that would in vain arid so trembling by went into the sitting room. To my great Relief the stranger did not recognize me but remarked pleasantly to my father As he introduced me a such a Fine boy was surely Worth How the words Cut Rao to the heart. My father had often told me the Story of a Friend who had plunged into the River to save Moas 1 was drowning while an infant and who in consequence of a cold then taken had been crippled by inflammatory rheumatism and this was the Man had made a butt of ridicule and a laughing Stock for my i Tell you boys and. Girls i would give Many dollars to have the memory of that event taken away. If Over you Are tempted As i was remember that while no Good can Tomc a sport whereby fihe feelings of others Are wounded to Romair be laying up for Yoti solves painful recollections to Haf a will riot leave you fat a lifetime a t r i Lars pm bodily Carriage. Instead of giving All sorts of rules about turning out the toes and straightening up the body and holding Tho shoulders Back Aii of which Are impracticable to Many because soon forgotten or productive of a feeling of awkwardness and discomfort which procures a willing omission All that is necessary to secure the object is to hold up the head and move on letting the toes and shoulders take care of themselves. Walk with the. Chin but slightly above a horizontal line or with your Eye directed to things a Little higher than your own head. In this Way you walk properly pleasurably and without any feeling of restraint or awkwardness if any one wishes to be aided in securing this habitual Carriage of Tho body accustom yourselves to carry your bands behind you one band grasping the opposite wrist. Englishmen Are admired Tho world Over for their full chests and Broad shoulder Sand sturdy frames and Manly bearing. This position of the body is a Favorito with them in the simple promenade in the Garden or gallery in attending the ladies along a crowded Street or in Public worship. A single Rule Well attended to in this connection would be of incalculable value to multitudes use chairs with old fashioned straight backs a Little incl Riig backwards and sit with the lower portion of the body close against the Back of the chair at the seat any one who tries it will observe in a moment a grateful support to Tho whole spine. And we see no reason Why children should not be taught from the beginning to write and sew and knit in a position requiring the lower portion of the body and the Back and the shoulders to touch the Back of the chair at the same time. A very common position in sitting especially among men is with a space of several inches Between the chair Back and Tho lower portion of the spine giving the body the shape of a hoop it is the instantaneous instinctive and almost Universal position assumed by any consumptive on sitting Down unless contracted by an Effort of the will hence parents should regard such a position in their children with apprehension and should rectify it at s journal of health.

A in a Bure i did no to request you to upset your Coffee a a but you put me in a a i put you in a it fusion 1 you have been Cross As a Bear Ever since you got up charge of judge Pearson. On monday a week judge Pearson delivered the following charge to the grand jury. Gentlemen of the grand jury the exigency of the times and my great anxiety to Benefit the country and shelter the claim Unity from impending evil must be my apology for travelling out of the Ordinary description of crimes and misdemeanours and calling your attention and through you that a of the people at Large to the danger of. Vii Abiog certain recently enacted Laws of Congress passed for the purpose of enabling the government to carry on successfully the War for National which we Are now unfortunately my Oiven. To meet the immense demands Public Treasury and raise the necessary funds maintain the National credit heavy taxes . Business and certain descriptions of property have been imposed by Congress. The measure was indispensable without which or some one of Kindred character the wheels of government would come to a dead stand. Although this i3 Well known to every person of Ordinary certain designing individuals for unpatriotic and sinister purposes have raised a Public clamor against the tax with the View of rendering it unpopular and in Many parts of the country the people Are urged to elude its assessment and resist its collection. In a country professing to be governed by Laws every evasion of their obligation or resistance to their enforcement is a violation of the highest moral duty of the citizen. Liis Only Protection for life Liberty or property is to be found in the Law and he can with no propriety claim its shelter if he condemn is its sanctions or evades its responsibilities. These tax Laws do not fall upon the real property of the country. Congress considered that sufficiently burdened by the state county and municipal taxes but they imposed it business of the dealer the manufacturer and the professional Man and More especially on incomes salaries monies at interest stocks and obligations of various kinds and forms. The Burden should be met cheerfully and the tax paid honestly for never had this country greater necessity for the Aid of the citizen in return for the Protection which he has received. It is not Only the moral and Legal duty to which i desire to Call your attention but also to apprise you that the Law contains severe Legal sanctions Aud imposes heavy penalties against those who make false statements or resist its execution. The Law providing for a system of conscription to fill the ranks of the army has been the subject of severe Anima version. This opposition doubtless arises in part from an honest difference of opinion among Oor citizens As to the Best method of effecting the object but is pressed mainly by those who out of disaffection to the government or sympathy with the rebellion Are opposed to any system which would strengthen the military Force of the country. The provides for enrolling the whole militia of the United states and exacts service from All Able bodied men Between the Ages of Twenty and forty five with a very few exceptions. They Are divided into two classes those Between the Ages of Twenty and thirty five form the first and those above thirty five the second class. The requisite draft is to be made in the first place from the younger class until it is exhausted after which the elder May be called into service. The failure to serve in person or by a substitute will probably subject the delinquent to a penalty of three Hundred dollars. The provides severe penalties against any resistance to the draft or counselling or advising any one to resist it or not to appear at the place of rendezvous or perform military duty and punishes with severity any assault officers engaged in making it or obstructing them in the performance of their duty. The same statute also imposes a heavy Fine and a Long term of imprisonment on any one who shall procure entice or counsel a Soldier in the service of the United to desert or who shall Harbor conceal or give employment to a deserter or Aid him to escape from the service knowing him to be such and you will understand that this applies even to the nearest relative harbouring and concealing a deserter unless it might be to the Case of a wife concealing her husband so that it is the Bounden duty of every one knowing that a deserter is on or about their premises to give immediate notice thereof to some Provost marshal or other officer of the United states. Every citizen must Bear in mind that combinations formed to resist the Law Are of themselves High crimes and those so uniting or combining May even without the commission of any overt be indicted for a conspiracy and if resistance by Force occurs the parties so resisting Are guilty of High treason. You Are doubtless aware that one Branch of the definition of High treason As declared in the Federal Constitution consists in levying War against the United states. And judge Grier has decided in the circuit court in strict conformity with the decisions of nearly nil of the United states supreme judges that levying War against the United states is not necessarily to be judged of alone by the number and array of troops but there must be a conspiracy to resist by Force and an actual resistance by Force of arms or intimidation by numbers. The conspiracy and the insurrection connected with it must be to effect something of a Public nature to overthrow the government or to nullify some Laws of the United states and totally to hinder its execution or compel its repeal. Another Learned judge in conformity with All the authorities declares Nihat levying War embraces not merely the of formal or declared War but any combination forcibly to prevent or oppose the enforcement of any provision of the Constitution or of a Public statute if accompanied or followed by an of forcible opposition in pursuance of such not Only those who use the Force Are guilty of High treason but every one who counsels or encourages the becomes principal traitors for in treason All Are principals. This crime by the Laws of the United states is very properly punished with death for it is the highest offence which any citizen can commit against the government of his. Country the Endeavor to destroy it. The Public speakers Quot and editors 6r writers la a newspapers flippantly advis e resistance to the Laws can certainly but Little reflect off their should those who they address Titke them at their word and resort to forcible resist Cace not Only a offed the cd via cd but the Eli atom a family paper Foxtow n Amo count re is printed and published weekly by we.

It sometimes happens that Provost marshals or their guards meet with res Stanco when endeavouring to compel drafted militiamen or deserters from the army to attend at the places of rendezvous. Those making it must Bear in mind that their resistance is unlawful. The officer or his guard come under the shelter of Legal authority. If those making the resistance Are killed it is justifiable homicide. If the officer or any aiding him Are slain it is murder in All concerned in making the opposition a it is very confidently asserted that societies have been formed in an adjoining county the direct nature and object of which is resistance to the National Laws and it is also intimated that they Are in part composed of citizens of Lebanon county. If any of our citizens have been so imprudent As to connect themselves with such institutions we counsel and urge them to sever the connection without delay else they May find themselves involved in that which May Lead to their ruin. Every combination of men for any unlawful purpose is a conspiracy add May subject the conspirator to imprisonment in the Penitentiary. It is an offence against the Laws of the Commonwealth triable in the state courts and if the grand jury or Auy member of that body knows of the existence of such societies in this county it is their Bounden duly to present them. In addition to the Laws of the United states already referred to we have a highly penal statute in our own state against endeavouring to persuade any person from entering the military service of this state or of the United states or being in such service advising or Eude adoring to persuade them to leave it. As this is an offence against the state Laws if you know of any such acts having been committed it is your duty to present them. There is an evil of very considerable magnitude at the present time and of almost daily occurrence for which it is supposed that there is no adequate Legal remedy i allude to that of persons reviling and railing against the government under which we live and praising and expressing a preference for that of the rebels Buck conduct frequently leads to violence part of the Loyal citizens at which we need not be much surprised although it is not justifiable in Law. The proper course is to have the parties so reviling the government arrested and taken before a magistrate where they May be bound Over for their Good behaviour until the next session of this court when the cause can be fully heard. We have no doubt that such seditious and traitorous expressions at a time like the present if not indictable afford Good ground for binding the perpetrator for his Good behaviour if for no other reason because it tends to breaches of the Public peace by exciting others to break it but numerous additional Legal reasons May be adduced to justify such a course. It May be thought by some that we Are introducing a Mere question of party politics into court which we entirely disclaim1. These questions have no relation to party but to National existence. Partisans May and perhaps always will differ As to the Best and proper method of administering the government but the Points diseased go to its very existence a shall we have a National government at All the Rebelin if successful destroys our nationality and throws All things into chaos. Citizens Hare a right under the provisions of the Constitution to change their rulers at the expiration of their term of office and elect those who will administer the Public affairs differently but no Oue has the right to government itself. Every sue is High treason. In a contest like that now waging in this country All whose feelings wishes and sympathies Are with tie rebels Are traitors in their hearts and All who Render them Aid or Comfort directly or indirectly Are traitors in their acts All who Are riot for the government Ato against it. In this great struggle for National existence there can be but two parties True Juifen and traitors there can be no of urals. Every Man receiving the Protection of the government is bound to Render if Bis warmest support whether be a Pioves or disapproves of its administration.
