170 Years Ago

The Muncy Luminary

Saturday morning

January 1, 1842

Charity may cover a multitude of sins; but it is not a circumstance to what money will cover; for it will totally obscure sins, physical deformities, and mental imperfections. It is a universal panacea – an open sessame to all hearts and houses.


The Patent Office at Washington City was lately robbed of several valuable articles which were worth about $15,000, consisting principally of presents from foreign governments.

An earthquake recently occurred in Guatamala, Central America, and several villages were entirely destroyed, and many inhabitants killed. The survivors were left destitute of food and shelter.


Is hereby given that I, Henry B. Weaver, keeper of the Union Hotel in the Borough of Muncy, intend to, apply for a Tavern license, to keep a public Inn or Tavern in the house now occupied by me as aforesaid, as a Tavern called the Union Hotel, in the Borough of Muncy, for one year.


Muncy, Jan. 1st, 1842



Has returned to make his usual yearly visit to Muncy, in his Professional capacity. and all those who need his services either in repairing or inserting new teeth, may be accommodated by leaving word at Mr. Kelchner’s Hotel, as he does not call from house to house, peddler-like, as some who profess dentistry do.

His charges are moderate and work warranted to be as good as can be done any where else in the State.

Families will be waited upon at their residence when requested.

Muncy, Dec. 25th, 1841.
