FAST WORK – A Mr. Miller, one day last week, for a wager, undertook to husk 35 barrels of corn, from sun-rise to sun-set, which he more than accomplished, having husked 37 ½ barrels in less than nine hours, besides typing up the fodder.  The feat was performed on the farm of Mr. Graham, adjoining the borough. – Carlisle Democrat.

The Easton (Pa.) Argus  mentions an incident of an old gentleman recently deceased in Lehigh county, who had been suspected of having considerable money in his house, although no one knew the amount.  On examining the premises after his death, no less than eleven thousand dollars were found in specie, which he had doubtless been saving and concealing for many years.
