Says the Indiana Democrat; A son of Abel Stewart, of this place, accidentally shot himself with a pistol on Monday last. The young man was engaged in loading the pistol, when it went off, the ball striking him in the stomach.

Mr. Richard Crossen, who was injured at the explosion of a puddling furnace in the Rolling Mill, has since died from the effects of his injuries, and was buried in St. John cemetery, west of Cambria borough, on Saturday last.

Mr. Joseph Freidhoff, one of the oldest and most esteemed citizens of Munster township, died very suddenly about 2 o'clock on Sunday afternoon last from hemorrhage of the lungs, or more properly speaking, perhams, from suffocation produced by hemorrhage of the lungs. The deceased has partaken of a very harty dinner and was getting ready to go to the Summit to consult a physician in regard to some other ailment which afflicted him, and was up stairs putting on additional raiment when the dread summons came. Mr. Freidhoff was an uncle of County Treasurer Freidhoff and was aged about 68 years. He was a married man, but we believe had no family, and made his home with one of his nephews in whose home he died. Interment in the Catholic cemetery, Loretto, on Thursday. May he rest in peace.
