ALL OVER.-Mr. Jacob Hanes moved his family and household goods to this place last Monday. Mr. H., has rented the dwelling formerly occupied by Mrs. Canutt. Jacob is in dead earnest and does not propose "going back on his dignity."---FIRE.-Yesterday morning, the residence of Dr. B.H. Boyd, of Attica, took fire from a defective flue. The fire originated in the rear part of the building, and was considerably damaged. The promptness of the citizens in getting to the scene of action, in a great measure, was the means of saving as much as was saved.---CORONER'S INQUEST.-Again a mysterious death has occured in our midst.-A man was found dead yesterday morning about half a mile north of town near where Dan. Jordan lives. The coroner held an inquest yesterday afternoon, but we have not room this week for the facts. Look for it next week.---PETER CARTRIGHT.-On the Saturday evening's 6:42 accommodation, going west, Rev. Peter Cartright was aboard, going to his home in Illinois. The old gentleman, and pioneer in Methodism, is in poor health. A lady of this place being aboard at the time, and learning that the Rev. was also a passenger, sought him out and formed his acquaintance.---A MISTAKE.-Last week in the announcement of Mr. Brown for Judge, we were in error in regard to the counties composing the eighth Judicial Circuit. The counties in this Circuit are Fountain, Montgomery, Boone, Clinton, and Warren. Blame any one you please-the proprietor, compositor, or, if you like, blame the devil-but don't blame Brown.--- By all means go to the Lecture tonight.---OUT.- Albert Clem who was sentenced for three years to the State Penitentiary, at the October term of the Circuit Court for killing James Becket, by the reversal of the case in the Supreme Court, has a new trial. He was returned to the county jail last Friday night and last Tuesday was released on bail in the sum of $25,000. He will have a new hearing of his case at the coming term of the Court which begins one week from next Monday.---THE SPRING.-Since Spring has fairly opened we have had grand weather. The roads are becoming good, and every thing is starting into fresh vigor and growth. Fruit trees of every description in a short time will be in bloom, filling the air with a sweetness unsurpassed by the breath of art. At this time of the year everything seems as far advanced as last year, in the month of May. We attribute this to our mild and open Winter.
