The incident narrated elsewhere, of a constable undertaking te swell 12 miles actually traveled into 8S2 miles legal mileage, admirably illustrates the pre vailing practice of extortion among our public officials. Had the officer of the law been less grasping in his attempt te rob unfortunate litigants and increased his fees four or five hundred per eent. above their legal amount, his demands might have been satisfied without chal lenge ; but when he made the excess some two thousand per cent of his rights it was a little tee stiff te be paid without remonstrance, ending in examination and an abatement of the unlawful de mand. The example, however, will prove use ful te all classes of the public in exhibit ing te them the process by which fees are illegally increased, and the danger of being robbed te which ...

Oxford narrowly escaped a ftener.il con flagration from the burning of tueMeneujjh hotel stables en Saturday night. The wind blew in the direction of the Presby terian church, and it was feared for some time that it would be burned, as a tenant house belonging te the bank standing near it had taken lire. The fire department was promptly en baud and worked assidu ously and effectually nndcr the direction of their chief engineer, Geerge E, James, who displayed great coolness and skill in the management of affairs. Streams were thrown upon the burniug stable and upon the tenant house, which was saved, but in a charred condition. Had this building burned it would have been extremely difficult te have saved the church. The wind then veered te the op posite direction and set flre te te the sta ble of Jeseph A.

The city of Harrisburg has just bor rowed sixty thousand dollars at four per cent, te replace a six per cent, lean, and received a premium of one-half percent, beside. This is as surprising as it is gratifying; and we are told by a bank ing firm in this city that it will take a Lancaster city lean en the same terms. By all means let four per cents, be sub stituted for our present obligations. We de net understand why a city lean should be taken at that rate, but arc content te knew that it will be.

Wells in these parts have often been low, but never perhaps lower than they have been most of the past summer and autumn. Many were looking anxiously for rain, se that the springs might rise again. But local rains have nothing te de with our wells, and this can be seen by any one who has anything te de with digging of the ground.
