Accident and Narrow Escape. On Tuesday last, says the Reading Gazette, as Dr. J. Seiberling, of Hamburg, in company • with a lady, named Kcehler, was on bis way to Upper Bern township, in a light vehicle, an accident occurred, which had well nigh proved fatal. Upon crossing the canal bridge al Hamburg, the horse took fright, and sprang over a steep declivity, more than 20 feet deep, intn the canal below. The horse was instantly killed, and the vehicle broken to pieces. The lady was precipitated with her head against the rudder of a canal boat, and seriously, though not fatally injured. Doctor Seiberling providentially escaped without the slightest hurt. » 9 —: frozen to Death.—A man by the name of Wood, a tinner, by trade, was found in a road in Cbsnarvon township, Berks county, about ten days ago, frozen (o-death.

Sowing Clover Seed. If you have not already sown your clover seed, you should loao no time in doing so, after the ground is relieved from the frost, and take our word for it, that you will advance your chances of success by rolling it in. Indeed, we would both harrow and roll after seeding, wilh Ihe confident belief that we should benefit the wheat crop, by encouraging its tillering. In advocating the sowing of clover seed we are prompted to recommend its culture because we conscientiously believe that , without clover and lime, no permanent improvement of the soil can be effected, on any lands which may have been exhausted of its calcareous element, or, perchance, may not oiigiinilly have had it. This opinion, thus incidentally advanced, forces us to the confession, lhat it is useless to sow clover seed on fields where the soils are destitute of lime, unless ashes or lime accompany such seeding.

The Chambersburg Outrage. There are most painful suspicions afloat in relation to the outrage at, Chambersburg, on the night of the 26th of February. There was a difficulty between the former Treasurer of Ihe county,-told the Commissioners in the settlement of his account, and within a few weeks several communications have been pnblished, charging a defalcation. The books had been so kept, that the matter could, wilh the utmost difficulty, be investigated, yet an investigation was progressing. Tlio office of ihe Treasurer was on ihe night of the 26ih of February broken open, and the docket running from 1847 lo^he present time, so completely mutilated, that it is utterly impossible to make anything out of it. The object was not to obtain money, and suspicion was so strong under the circumstances against the former Treasurer, that he was arresteu anri i,oi,i .~ i>»;i m c,vuv nullum to answer.

Iron Coffins. A correspondent of tho Philadelphia North* American, writing from Delaware, suggests—and he deems tho suggestion of perhaps some commercial interest to the Stale of Pennsylvania, and worthy, from economic and oilier reasons, the consideration of philamropiets—the feasibility of casting iron coffins and making them a substitute for costly shells of wood. "It is believed," he says, that such articles can be made light, (and wilh occasional ribs) of sufficient strength for any purpose required, and at a cost considerably lower than is usuall y charged for tho wooden article now used.—- Different sizescould be advantageousl y packed in nests for transportation—and if (".lightly covered with gum-elastic, or something similar corrosion might probably be prevented, and perpetuity measurably secured thereby.
