Jit? l-rEayTHifEi Homo and Around. HUNTINGDON AND BROAD TOP lt.rt. -WINTER ARUAXGEXENT.—TIMETABI.R —Oti and after Sept. 1 fith, paa-engcr trains will arrive and depart as fellows: Mail Train leaves Mt. Dallas at 1.10 p. in . ar rives at Huntingdon at 4 21 p. m.; leaves Hunt ingdon at 9.05 a. in., and arrives at Mt. Dallas a' 12.18 a. in. Aecininodation Train leaves Saxton 7.30 a. in., and arrives at Huntingdon, at 9.20 a.m.; leaves Huntingdon at 4.35 p. m , and arrives at Saxton at 6.27 p. m. Going—the Old Year. Coming--the Holidays. On hand—a surplus of snow. Delighted—the children at the near approach of Christmas. Scarce— Green backs, butter and Rad icals who don't want an office. The late snow storms have stopped work on the buildings in progress in this town. A modern prophet says we are to have eighteen snows this winter —two of them very deep. Ladies—remember that this is the last month in Leap Year. Improve the few moments yet left you. Finished—the grading of Juliana street. Some of the pavements are left in bad condition for the winter. Gentlemen who dye their hair and whiskers should not complain of the ladies who use powder on their faces. Tit for tat. Somebody has flattered Boston by saying it has the prettiest women in America. That somebody has never visited Bedford. A man named Farner stole a horse and buggy from a stable in Johns town, and was arrested in Somerset c >unty and put in jail. A little boy in Huntingdon died from the effects of drinking some lini ment containing hart/horn, which his father had been using. An editor in an adjoining county boasts of the Thanksgiving dinner he helped to eat. I'oor fellow ! No doubt warm victuals tasted good to him. Huntingdon is to have a Building Association, a stove manufacturing company and a furniture manufactory. "Ye ancient borough" is looking up. Tiie "Devil's Brigade" is the name given to that class of fellows who linger about the church-doors, staring ladies out of countenance. Very appropriate. Plenty—applicants for the post office. Those seriously inclined that way had better apply toNasby at once. Grant has no policy on the P. M. sub ject. What is snow? A sentimental "lo cal" responds: White feathers falling from celestial doves; the sky shower ing v.'hite blossoms on the grave of the departed year. The Teachers' Institute of Hunting don county meets on the 14th, that of Somerset on the 21st. Our County Su perintendent, 11. W. Fisher, Esq., is announced to be present at both. IF your feet itch and burn, buy a bottle of Ileckerman's Regelon. Sold at Heekerman's drug store. Price 25 cts. A sure cure. BLOWN DOWN.— During the terri ble storm of Monday night, the irpn smokestack of the Crystal Mills owned by the Messrs. 1 lartlev was blown down and completely demolished. THE VICISSITUDES OF FoßTUXEcan not dest roy mental culture. Education rise-above panics and fluctuations of trade. Knowledge and refinement are better than gold. Your daughters can enjoy superior advantages at the liolli daysburg Seminary. RUNAWAY.— Last Thursday the ex cellent span of horses owned by Dan iel Cessna and driven by him on that day, became frightened and ran away. One of them ran against a tree with such violence that he was instantly killed. BEAR CAPTURED.— We learn from the last Inquirer that Jacob Hardtnan, .John Hollar, William Hill, Levi Car penter and Samuel May, of Harrison tp., captured a bear on Buffalo moun tain, near Buffalo Mills. He netted one hundred and eleven pounds. ♦ IN TOWN.— David Over, Esq., of the Hollidaysburg Register , was in town last week, attending Court. David looks as though editing a hitter Radi cal sheet in Blair county agrees with him. He's for Geary for next Gover nor. 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 denly at his residence in this borough. Up to that day the Judge was enjoy ing good health, having attended the court through all its sessions last week. We deeply sympathize with the fami ly which has thus suddenly been be reft of its head. 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 Year days, in the Court Hall of this 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. Press. 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: Solomon Dicken vs. Moses Dickon's Ex'or. Feigned Issue. Jury find for Defendant. William Rogers vsThe Riddlesburg Coal A Iron Co. Ejectment. Jury find for the Defendants. Simon Walter et al vs Joseph Ilelsel ct al. Ejectment. Jury find for De fendants. P. G. Morgart, Committee, Ac., vs. Daniel Ilarshberger. Summons in As sumpsit. Verdict for Plaintiff for $211.10. David Over vs G. W. Ilupp et at. Summons in Assumpsit. Jury find for Plaintiff for $1292.52. 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. Bread is the staff of human life, and advertising is the staff of life in trade. Don't attempt to advertise unless you have a good stock of a meritori ous article. Newspaper advertisements are good of their kind, hut they cannot take the place of circulars and hand-bills. Hand-bills and circulars are good of their kind, but they cannot take the place of newspaper advertisements. No bell can ring so loudly as a good advertisement. People will believe what they see, rather than what they hear. Bonner, for several successive years, invested in advertising all the profits of the proceeding year. Now see what be is! 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, "with interest." If you would add to your business, put your "ad." into our list. A FIXED FACT— That Irvine, of the Re.fntaf.or, is selling to everybody from his large stock of superior boots and shoes, furnishing goods, queens ware, glassware, groceries, &c. if our readers desire to select their goods from a large assortment in these va rious departments, Irvine's is the place to do it. ADVICE TO LOVERS.— Never risk a scolding by neglecting to supply your betrothed with PHAI/N'S "FLOR DE MAYO," the new perfume for the handkerchief. It is a sad thing for an engaged couple to have a misunder standing about a (s)cent. Sold by all druggists. FINE Bibles and Hymn books, suit able for Christmas presents can be bought cheap at the Inquirer Book Store. 2t.

Stj t Jgjpu pstEADnratA, Apr. i-tii, SSBE JACOB SCHKETZ —Hear Sir: It gives me pleasure to bear testimony to the efficacy of ".S ieheetz's Celebrated Bitter Cordial My daugliter, who has been afflicted for the last two years with In digestion and Dyspc-psia, for which she had the services of medical skill, and also tried various remedies without a vail, was at last induced to try your "Celebrated Bitter Cordial," and I am happy to say her health has been en tirely restored by its use. I would therefore recommend it to others sul fering from the sameeause, as J believe it to be an invaluable remedy in such cases. Very respectfully, It. \V.

Smith, Boston, used at the late convention, de serves an especial notice, a large doub le banked instrument of 14 stops, whose heavy sub-bass notes were dis tinctly heard above the whole chor us of out) voices, while in accompanying the recitatives in theoratorios, the effect of the soft stops and tremolo were very striking. We notice that the use of these beautiful instruments is begin ning to be appreciated by musical soci eties in the largest cities.— Burlington Free Press. 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 ed many surprising and beneficial 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 was delighted and surprised, and deter mined to make it the basis of a Tonic and Restorative Medicine. The result, 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 principles, and relying wholly upon the vegetable kingdom for its medicinal effects, it worked a rapid revolution in the treatment of physical debility. MAGNOLIA WATER.— Superior to the best imported German Cologne, and sold at half the price.

MICKLES, Vioc President. GEORGE ELLIs (Cashier National Bank Com monwealth,) Treasurer. 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 : Population. Canton 1,000,000 Macoa 60,000 Hong-Kong 250.000 Swatow 200.000 Arnoy 250,000 Foo-Cbow 1,250.000 Wan-Chu 300.000 Ningpo 400.000 Hang Chcan 1,200.000 Shanghai 1,000,000 Total 5,910,000 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 thereafter 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. £-g?~The stock of this Company has been un qualifiedly recommended to capitalists and busi ness mon, as a desirable investment by editorial articles in the New York Herald, Trilune, World.
