A modern prophet says we are to

of them very deep.
Ladies—remember that this is the

Finished—the grading of Juliana

left in bad condition for the winter.
Gentlemen who dye their hair and
whiskers should not complain of the

A little boy in Huntingdon died

An editor in an adjoining county

warm victuals tasted good to him.
Huntingdon is to have a Building

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

BLOWN DOWN.— During the terri

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

BEAR CAPTURED.— We learn from
the last Inquirer that Jacob Hardtnan,
.John Hollar, William Hill, Levi Car

Hollidaysburg Register , was in town
last week, attending Court. David

GOOD HUNTING. —The "local" of the
Harrisburg Patriot brags of a hunter
in that vicinity, who has shot six wild
turkeys this season. We can beat this
easily. Mr. Geo. Stiflier of "this place
has killed eleven, and a party of three
others have shot over thirty. Any
thing else in our line, Mr. Local ?
SUDDEN DEATH. —On last Tuesday,
W. T. Daugherty, Esq., died very sud

Up to that day the Judge was enjoy

court through all its sessions last week.
We deeply sympathize with the fami

COD. ROBERT FYAH. —Tito many
friends of this gentleman, in this coun
ty, will he gratified to learn that he
has been re-elected to the office of Pres
ident Judge of the district in which he
resides, in Mi-souri. Mr. Fyan is a
Radical of the strictest sect, but his
general popularity may be adjudged
from the fact that in lis 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 at
Heekerman'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
Will use no other.
TinrTSSISreSV. -There will be a
Festival and Grand Concert on Tues
day, Wednesday and Thursday eve
nings, between Christmas and New

place, for the benefit of the Cemetery
Ass'n. These entertainments promise
to be the best of the kind ever gotten
up in Bedford. Let our people respond
in such a manner as will make these
concerts a success, and result profitably
to the Cemetery Association.
Sxow.—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 be on "runners,"
and even in this first little jaunt of
sledding we could record a number of
"spills," "runaways," and other etcet
eras, incident to sieigh-riding. II the
present weather continues, what a
merry time the jingling bells and the
marriageable belles will have.
To TH N Gi RES.— 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 back, 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; theiraffections last,
while thoseof a rich lookingyoung man
are lost in the wane of the honeymoon.
'Tis true, girls, be not deceived.
VAIXARLE SALE.— We learn from
undoubted authority that the'Leinnos
Furnace and lands belonging thereto,
were bought by the celebrated Iron
Company of Johnstown,—Wood, Mor
rell &- 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 ('o.
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. Itseems
that boys labor under the mistaken i
dca 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.

Newspaper advertisements are good

Hand-bills and circulars are good of

No bell can ring so loudly as a good
advertisement. People will believe

Bonner, for several successive years,
invested in advertising all the profits
of the proceeding year. Now see what
Quitting advertising in dull times is
like tearing out a dam because the wa
ter is low. Either plan will prevent
good times from ever coming.
The wise man of Scripture evident
ly did not refer to advertising when
he said, "Cast thy bread upon the wa
ters and after many days thou shalt
see it again," or he would have added,
If you would add to your business,
put your "ad." into our list.
A FIXED FACT— That Irvine, of

to do it.
ADVICE TO LOVERS.— Never risk a

Many years ago the writer of this no
tice and an invalid physician, while
visiting the Island of St. Croix for
their health, experienced and witness

effects of the Itum there prouueed up
on many of the invalids who were, like
ourselves, seeking health, obtained a
full history of its medical virtues, lie

of his labors was a glorious success for
himself 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. McCLURE, Philadelphia, Solicitor.
The Chinese Government having (through the
Hon. Anson Buriingame) conceded to this Com
pany the privilege of connecting the great sea
ports of the Empire by submarine electric tele
graph cable, we propose commencing operations
in China, and laying down a line of nine hundred
miles at once, between the following port t. viz :
Hang Chcan 1,200.000
These ports have a 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
Us canals and navigaljle rivers.
The cable being laid, this company proposes
erecting land lines, and establishing a speedy and
trustworthy means of communication, which most
command there, as everywhere else, the commu
nications of the Government, of business, and of
social life esneoialiy in China. She has no postal
system, ami her only means nowofeommnuicating
information is by couriers on land, and by steam
ers on water.
The Western World knows that China i 3 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 fox 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 old,
not only can but do read and write. lior civili
zation is peculiar, but her literature is as exten
sive as that of Eurt-pe. China is a land of teaeh
ers and traders; and the latter are 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 the transmission of
early intelligence. If the telegraph we propose
connecting all their great seaports, were now in
existence, 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.

qualifiedly recommended to capitalists and busi
