A little boy in Huntingdon died

An editor in an adjoining county

Huntingdon is to have a Building

"Ye ancient borough" is looking up.
The "Devil's Brigade" is the name

BLOWN DOWN.— During the terri

smokestack of the Crystal Mills owned
by the Messrs. 1 lartley was blown down
and completely demolished.

John Hollar, William Hill, Levi Car

GOOD HUNTING.— The "local" ofthe
Jlarrisburg Patriot brags of a hunter
in that vic'iiity, who has shot six wild
turkeys this season. We can beat this
easily. Mr. Geo. StifHer of this place

otheis have shot over thirty. Any
thing else in our line, Mr. Local ?
HI DDEN DEATH. —On LAST Tuesday,
W. T. Daugherty, Esq., died very sud

I'p to that day the Judge was enjoy

court through all its ses-ions last week.
We deeply sympathize with the fami

COL. ROBERT FYAX.— 'The many
friends of this gentleman, in this coun

has be. n re-elected to the office of Pres
ident Judge of the district in which he
resides, in Missouri. Mr. Fyan is a
Radical of the strictest sect, but his
general popularity may be adjudged
from the fact that in his dirtrict, with
the exception of Grant, he leads the
whole Radical ticket. Col. Fyan is a
son of Robert Fyan, Esq., the oldest
merchant in this place.
CORNED BEEF AND CURED HAM-.
Many persons do not know how to put
up Pork and Beef so that it will keep
good and sweet for a year or more; it
is easily done when you once know
how, and costs but a trifle. Call tit
Heckerman's Drug Store and get some
of the preparation and instructions
how to use it. All who have used this
cure for meat, say it is the best, and

up in Bedford. Let our people respond

SNOW. —On last Sunday night and
Monday morning a deeper snow fell
than we have had for years. The
snow of the latter part of last week
was duly taken advantage of by par
ties who delight to he on "runners,"
and even in this first little jaunt of
sledding we coukl record a number of
"spills," "runaways," and other etcet
eras, incident to sleigh-ruling. If the
present weather continues, what a
merry time the jingling hells and the
marriageable belles will have.
TOTIIK GIRLS.— Girls beware of tran
sient young men. Never suffer the ad
dresses of a stranger ; recollect that a
steady farmer boy or a mechanic is
worth all the floating trash in the
world. The allurements of a dandy
Jack, with a gold chain about his neck,
and a walking stick in his paw, some
honest tailor's coat on his hack, and a
brainless skull, can never make up for
the loss of a father's house and a good
mother's counsel, and the society of
brothers and sisters; their affections last,
while thoseof a rich lookingyoungman
are 10-t in the wane of the honeymoon.
'Tis true, girls, be not deceived.
VALUABLE SALE. —We learn from
undoubted authority that the Lemnos
Furnace and lands belonging thereto,
were bought by the celebrated Iron
Company cf Johnstown, —Wood, Mor
rel! & Co. Knowing Something of the
character of this Company, and the as
surance they have given to re-build
the old works we hail their advent in
our neighboring township, as a pledge
that the incalculable treasures of Iron
Ore known to exist in our valleys are
about being developed.— Bedford Co.
ADJOURNED COURT.- -The causes
tried at the adjourned court, last week,
were few, but each cause occupied a
good deal of time, it being necessary
to hold a number of night sessions.
The following were disposed of:

JUVENILE PROFANITY.— We know
no vice which needs a more thorough
reformation than the low and vulgar
practice of profane swearing. It seems
that boys labor under the mistaken i
dea that it looks manly—that it adds
to their ephemeral importance, and if
they can place themselves behind a
segar, and blaspheme their maker with
impunity, they are acting like men !
No one who walks the streets of our
town, in the evening, especially, can
fail to see the prevalence of this abom
inable and wicked practice. It appears
to be on the increase. Our schools
for moral or religious instruction seem
to have done little toward the sup
pression of a habit, the great extent of
which argues a laxity of morals which
does no great credit to us as a people.
ADVERTISING APHORISMS.— If you
don't mean to mind your business, it
will not pay to advertise.

advertising is the staff of life in trade.

Many years aco the writer of this no
tice and an invalid physician, while
visiting the Island of St. Croix for
their health, experienced and witness
ed many surprising and beneficial
effects of the Hum there pro luced up
on many of the invalids who were, like
ourselves, seeking health, obtained a
full history of its medical virtues. He
was delighted and surprised, and deter
mined to make it the basis of a Tonic

of his labors was a glorious success for
hinisel f and suffering humanity. The
celebrated Plantation Hitters was thus
made known to the world. Being an
article of real merit, founded on new

vegetable kingdom for its medicinal
effects, it worked a rapid revolution in

HON. A. K. McCLI RF,, Philadelphia, Solicitor.
The Chinese Government having (through the
Hon. Anson Burlingame) conceded to this Com
pany the privilege of connecting the great sea
ports of the Empire by submarine electric tele
graph oable, we propose commencing operations
in China, and laying down a line of nine hundred
miles at once, between the following port •. viz :
Hang Chean 1,200.000
Total 5 910,000
These ports have n foreign commerce of $900,-
000,000. and an enormous domestic trade, besides
which we have the immense internal commerce of
the Empire, radiating from these points, through
its canals and navigable rivers.
The cable being laid, this company p>roposes
erecting land lines, and establishing a speedy and
trustworthy means of communication, which must
command there, as everywhere else, the column
nieations of the Government, of business, and of
social life especially in China. She has no postal
system, and her only means nowofeommauioating
information is by couriers on land, and by steam
ers on water.
The Western World knows that China is a very
large country, in the main densely peopled; but
few yet realize that she contains more than a third
of the human race. The latest returns made to
her central authorities for taxing purposes by tho
local magistrate make her population Four hun
dred and Fourteen millions, and this is more
likely to be under than over the actual aggregate.
Nearly all of these, who are over ten years otd.
not only can bt do read and write. Her civili
zation is peouliar, but her literature is as exten
sive as that of Eurepe. China is a land of teaeh
ers and traders; and the latter aro exceedingly
quick to avail themselves of every proffered facili
ty for procuring early information. It is observed
in California that the Chinese make great use of
the telegraph, though it there transmits messages
in English alone. To-day great numbers of fleet
steamers are owned by Chinese merchants, and
used by them exclusively for tho transmission of
early intelligence. If the telegraph we propose
connecting all their great seaports, were now in
exister.ee, it is believed that its business would
pay the cost within the first two years of its suc
cessful operation, and would steadily increase
No enterprise commends itself as in a greater
degree renumerative to capitalists, and to our
whole people. It is of vast national importance
commercially, politically and evangelically.
The stock of this Company has been un
qualifiedly recommended to capitalists and busi
ness men, as a desirable investment by editorial
articles in the New York Herald, Tribune,
World, Times, Post, Express, Independent, and
