Hastings, O., Oct. 14th., 1876 -- An accident occurred to SIMON STALL, of Newville.  While making cider at J. SNYDER's he was caught by the tumbling rod and thrown to the ground, breaking both bones of his left leg midway between ankle and knee.  The bones were set by Dr. J.P. HENDERSON, of Newville.  The house of J.P. HENDERSON is under repairs at this time by P. BERRY and hands.  We bought eighteen hundred pine shingles for said job and think it will not be enough.  The house of DANIEL MOWRY was moved by M. BOLINGER a distance of eighteen rods with care and speed.  The carpenter, WM. CHARLES, will force it to a speedy completion.

SIMON HOOVER arrived from the Centennial last Tuesday.  He was greatly pleased with his trip.  He brought a few pounds of some extraordinary large and fine rye, which was found growing wild along the Humbolt river and is now being successfully cultivated.  He also had some of Roger's Wheat;  this we think is the finest specimen of wheat we have ever seen.  When viewed through a magnifying glass, the grains resembled gold, perfectly beautiful.  Mr. H. has already committed these seeds to the coil, on his own farm.  He is also going to try one thousand peach trees on the Jersey style.  he visited some of the Jersey peach orchards.
