McKinney Public Free School. The next session will open on Monday, the 2d day of September, 1872. Pupils should be present on day of opening. W. P. CLOYD, Principal.

Our friends, ASTON and HELMS, of the Police court, A. WALTHERSDORFF of New Orleans, and a Mr. GRAY, were robbed of their loose change and parts of their clothing last Tuesday night by some light-fingered chap, who entered their sleeping apartments at the McKinney Hotel and helped himself while they slept. The thief got a pair of pants, a couple of hats, a pair of boots and about fifteen or twenty dollars in money. Such things do not often occur here.

Some one or two persons whose names we have not learned, under the influence of bad whisky, entered the house of freedman Isom MALLORY, one night this week, and after frightening the family away, one of the party made an attack on Isom with a knife. The latter escaped without injury and went to a deputy sheriff for assistance. One of the parties was subsequently arrested and gave his horse in pledge for his appearance the next morning, but afterwards went to the stable got his horse and departed. Such conduct is exceedingly reprehensible and the guilty parties ought to be punished.

A letter to Sheriff BUSH from the sheriff of Johnson county, bringing information of the capture of a man who represents himself as T. H. SANDERS. SANDERS, it will be remembered, was convicted of the murder of HUFFINES, before the district court of this county, some months since, and is one of the five persons who broke jail at this place on the night of the 3rd ult.

Last week, in enumerating the cases of varioloid which occurred here during the late small pox visitation, through misinformation we classed with them the case of the little daughter of Mrs. BARTLETT, of the Central Hotel. We now learn that she had never been vaccinated, and that hers was a case of small pox in a very virulent form. This correction is due the attending physician, Dr. McCARTY, to whose experience and skill the little girl is believed to be largely indebted for the preservation of her life.

Our old friend, E. L. HUFFMAN is in the dry goods business at Lebanon, in this county, and receives country produce in exchange for goods.

Senator M. C. HAMILTON has our thanks for bound copies o Congressional Globe, and other interesting public documents.

We understand that a boy whose name we have not ascertained, was killed by lightning at or near HILL's Store, beyond Lebanon, in this county, during the storm last Saturday; also that a traveller from Arkansas, a Mr. GARRETT, was killed in the same manner, at the house of Mr. J. W. KIRBY, six or seven miles from town. All the inmates of the house except Mr. KIRBY, were, our informant tells us, felled by the violence of the shock.

Yesterday (Wednesday) we had the pleasure of forming the acquaintance of a venerable old gentleman - a Mr. George HERNDON, of Cooper county, Missouri, who came to this county about a week since on a visit to two of his sone, the Messrs, George and James HERNDON, of this vicinity. The old gentleman has been a resident of Missouri for more than forty years, having settled in that State in the year 1831. He was born in Spotsylvania county, Virginia, in the year 1779, (three years after the declaration of American Independence) and consequently is now in the ninety-fifth year of his age. His hearing is a little impaired, but his general health and bodily and mental vigor, seem to be remarkably good for one so aged. His descendants, we are told, number about three hundred. He left town on the up-train on the Central, an hour after our interview with him, for his home in Missouri.
