Clifford - A troupe of Indians are expected to camp in this place for a couple of weeks, in the near future, with medicines, which they have to sell. AND Quite an accident happened here last week. As Mrs. Roberts, from near Lenoxville, and a lady that was visiting her, were driving through this place, the wagon became uncoupled by the king boll breaking, throwing them out and breaking the arm of Mrs. Roberts' guest, and otherwise injuring the ladies.

Lenoxville - Our stage driver, Dannie Robinson, met with a painful accident recently, received by a kick from a horse.

Harford - The death of Mrs. Almeda M. Vadakin removes another of the very few whose life runs back to Harford's early days. She was the daughter of Capt Asahel and Nancy Tiffany Sweet, daughter of Hosea Tiffany, the leader of the Nine Partners Her recollections of him were very distinct. Her life, till marriage, was spent mainly in Harford. In her girlhood Rev Ebenezer Kingsbury Father Kingsbury," often placed his hand on her, calling her "my little curl head " We purpose a more extended notice hereafter.
