Abraham Reed, an unoffending youth of 20 years, was stabbed in the cheek with a dirk knife on Tuesday evening, by a young rowdy named Dover, while returning from a Methodist meeting in the village of Cohocksink. Dover had insulted him repeatedly at the meeting, and upon being remonstrated with by a friend of Reed on the way home, inflicted the fatal wound and fled. The knife penetrated through the right side of the face to the jugular vein.

DEATH BY HYDROPHOBIA.--A daughter of Mr. Jacob
Brown, of South Easton, aged five years, died on Sunday the 23d ult., of
this terrible disease. She had been bitten by a rabbid (sic)
dog about six weeks ago. We learn that a similar death occurred at
Stroudsburg a short time since. We see by the papers that mad dogs
have appeared in several of the neighboring towns, and we would suggest
that our Town Council adopt precautionary measures here. The safety
of the community, in this respect, demands that something should be done
MORE COPPER IN PAHAQUARRY--Gen. James S. Hunt, who has recently returned
from a geological tour to Missouri, has just discovered a new copper mine
in Pahaquarry, in this county. It is located near the residence of
Samuel Shoemaker, Esq., and in the vicinity of the mines already opened
by the Alleghany Company. The ore, a fine specimen of which has been
left at our office, is of the best and richest quality, yielding about
80 per cent, of pure copper. We understand that the vein is large,
and promises to be very productive.
The attention of men of capital and enterprize has for some time past been directed to the copper mining operations in Pahaquarry, and we learn that a large amount of capital has already been invested in the business, with a prospect of full success. It is conceded on all hands, we believe, that the ore of this region is excelled by no other. It is of the purest quality, and is found in great abundance. Those disposed to embark in this business, could not, therefore, find a more desirable opening, and one which would be more likely to meet their expectations, than the Pahaquary Mines.
A locomotive on the railway
from Dover to Morristown, one dark night last week, run down a horse and
wagon left to occupy the track by the owner opposite J. M. Losey's store.
Of course the poor animal was killed and the wagon destroyed. The
people in the mountains are not used to rail-roads yet.

There were 154 paupers in the establishment, at the time the disease made its appearance, some fifty of whom are still remaining. Several left the premises through fright. Of some six or ten, who were still down with the disease, several have since died.
We learn from the same source, that the bad condition of the Institution, and the inefficiency of the Directorship, are freely commented upon.--Easton Sentinel.
