THE TREASURE THAT WAS FOUND IN
About a month iigo Jacob Klink,
a farmer, near Fox Chase, was saw-
ing down a large chestnut tree, w hen
the teeth of the saw came in contact
with some metallic substance. Fear-
ing the presence of something ex-
plosive, he directed the workmen to
saw on the other side ot the tree.
Tney did so. After the tree had
been felled, a gold watch, two gold
pencil ca-es and a gold chain were
found imbedded in the wood, eigh-
teen inches fiom the surface. They
were wrapped in a soiled sock. The
tree was sawed off close to the
ground, and they had evidently been
hidden at the junction of two roots,
and the wood had grown over and
enclosed them. The watch was
old-fashioned, having a case which
could lie detached, and was inscribed
with the date 1740. One of the pen-
cil cases was provided with a pen.
The other had only a pencil and
was minus the seal. The chain was
long and ii tended to pass around
the neck of the wearer, There was
also ;i gold key, which, however, did
not fit the watch. The tree had at-
tained a great age, being about six
feet in diameter. An old mansion
once stood near by, and it is sup-
posed the articles in question were
buiied during the war of the Revo-
lution. The watch was uninjured,
except that the hands were rusted off.
The finder has had it repaiied, and
will exhibit it to any who are curi
ous to see such a relic. He lives
about a mile above Fox Chase, on
the county line.—Philadelphia Tel-
TO BE INVESTIGATED.
The dispatches published in the
Times ot Sunday, together with the
editorial endorsement of the day fol-
lowing, charging Attorney-General
Pierrepont with having employed Ins
high authority to extort from Dis-
trict Attorney Dyer the evidence up-
on which he relied to convict Bab-
cock for the gurpose of communica-
ting the same to Babcock’s counsel,
ha» created great excitement in
Washington and will lead, our cor-
respondent informs us, to a special
Congressional examination. This is
just what the Times suggested and
just whatof all things it desires shall
be done. The Times states most
emphatically that the charges can be
substantiated to the fullest extent and
that the only way to get at the bot-
tom facts in this disgraceful business
is by just such an investigation as
was suggested by this paper and is
There is no necessity and but little
use for bluster on either side. At-
torney-General Pierrepont has only
to ask for an investigation to obtain
one but whether he asks for one or
not Congress should see that it is
had, and that very speedily. We
trust that the right man will move in
that direction at the first opportunity.
The witnesses are few in numbei
and easily had. It is not likely they
will volunteer any testimony, neither
will thev evade the giving of it.—St.

The objections raised against danc-
ing, in a moral point ot view, are
very strong, hut they proceed entire-
ly from a contemplation of the rec-
rc.■: on, as it is absurd. This is ;u
i 1 ■- esting question, as it must bt
patent to all who have considered
the matter that the tendency at the
present day is to its abuse, and that
it is tending to justify the opponent-
of the art in denouncing the pastime
altogether. The young men of mod-
ern society have a free-and easy*wa\
of conducting themselves in a bal
room. They do not go to a dune,
to contract the habit to easy genlie-
tlcmanly deportment, which Lessen
