Mr. John Klinger, from Juniata county, while attending court in Middlesburg, Pa., was politely informed, on Thursday last, that a neighbor of his had taken advantage of his absence and eloped with his wife, leaving her husband and five children.  Amos Shadle, who succeeded in alienating her affection from her former husband and gaining her good graces, was also married, having a wife and four children.

The Greencaste (Pa.) Ledger says that the Rev. J. Rebaugh, in a funeral sermon which he preached on the occasion of the death of Mr. George Cushwa, which took place week before last, stated that he (Cushwa) was the thousandth person he had buried in the course of his ministry.  Mr. Rebaugh is not an old man, and we believe has never preached in a city, which makes the matter astonishing.
