"""SBjsver Creek Coax. Mines. The.
coal vein recently discovered on Beaver
J-"" Creek, i "tributary bf tha South Santiani,
f upon a thorough examination, is proving
to be a 'big taing" for the owners. A
company has been organized ' and the
work of developing the vein has ; been
inaugurated.'; Specimens of ; the coal,
taken from the vein a few feet from the
'surface shows it , to be superior to the
same article , brought here from Paget
pouna -wie miners "go aown on
the vein it increases in width '" and rich
ness. It will be but a short time ere an
abundance ' of coal .from '. the Beaver
Creek minoi will be offered in our mark
et, at very fair rates, thus "cutting ia"on
the charcoal business to a grent extent.
.SliouM the efforts now making to secure
a small steamer for the navigation of the
Sautiain succeed, coal from these mines
can ba laid down in this city in short
order at a very reasonable rate. It seems
to be the firm conviction of all acquaint
ed with the river, that it can be success-
fully and profitably navigated as far up
at least as Lebanon, and to piove the
sincerity of their belief they are willing
to aid iu a liberal manner any man or
company that will undertake the enter
prise. Let some wide awake, enterr ris
ing man look into the matter j it may
prove a Letter investment thau the first
glance would fecui to indicate. Good
chances for liiukin a "bi;r raise" on a
small capital are riut so plenty that this
matter tnny be passed with impunity.
Christmas Tuee. The Methodist
people of this city and their friends, as
announced last . week, enjoyed their
Christui is festival at the Court House ou
Saturday night. Three large trees were
erected, tastefully ornamented and brill
iantly illuminated, on the branches of
which were hua, iu rich profusion, some
Gve hundred presents varying in value
from a splendid gold watch and chain and
splendid sets of jewelry to a stick of
candy or a cigar. A short address was
delivered by Kev. Mr. Todd, the Metho
dist pastor, and the occasion was enliven
ed by excellent vocal and instrumental
music. The spacious court room was
crowded to its fullest capacity by as
merry and happy an audience as ever
went a Christmas treeing. Great credit
is due Mr. Harry Kuhn, who had charge
of the whole matter and brought it to
so successful and pleasant an issue4 ?
Pajjokama. Dore's celebrated pano
rama of Milton's Paradise Lost, will be
exhibited at Parish Hall in this city on
Saturday evening (to-night), the canvass
moving at half past seven o'clock. This
celebrated painting, has received the
highest praise of the press, everywhere
throughout the United. States, and as a
satisfactory evidence of its great popu
larity those who have once seen it express
a desire to attend the exhibition again
say they cannot see it too often. As the
exhibition is for one evening only? of
course everybody will want to go, and a
full house will be the result. Those
desiring choice scats should go early.
: Removal. By reading the new ad
vertisement elsewhere it will be seen
that Messrs. A. Carothcrs & Co. haven
removed their largestock of drugs, chem
icals, paints, oib, essences, etc., ' to 1 the
Foster brick on First street, which ; they
have filled up iu the neatest and most
tasty manner. The energy, enterprise
and accommodation of this firm, although
in business but a few months in the city,
has secured them a large and paying
business. You are invited to call and
see them in their new quarter.
The Show. Barney & Taylor gave
an entertainment in " Parish 1 Hall on
Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, to
tolerable audiences. ' Barney's execution
of a medley on one string of his "fiddle"
was very good indeed fiddling is decid
edly Barney's heavy suit. Taylor's de
lineation of Yankee character, description
of a miners life, etc , were quite enter
taining, in every case "briuging down"
the house. His local song, although not
extraordinarily brilliant, was equal to the
occasion, and seemed to meet the appro
bation of the audienee generally. We
guess everybody who attended got their
nioney'n worth, and that's mote thau we
can say of all the shows that come this

At the ,U. IK

C'iTllE Ball. The ball given , by the
' Albany Brass Band on the evening of
the 2Gth, was a pleasant aud agreeable
one, enjoyed hugely by all present. There
were som3 hundred persons present, we
should judge, all of whom appeared to
have come to the party- on purpose to
enjoy themselves and they did. The
supper, prepared at the St. Charles, was
all that could be wished, and puts another
feather iu the hat of the pleasant and
atteutive lacdlorcL Mr. . Brenner. Ball
