evening; Miss. Catharine Beech, a J * hplp’.* lint
the “AltooEa Hoose," met with a serious Adri
ft. which may prove fatal. She had accoin
pinlcd some friends to the Branch train. Which
now etandfl on the sod was in the
act of returning back to the house, as the Al
toona Way Train, was coming into the depot.—
Col. Cramer, the conductor of the branch-train
told lier nol to eross thesidingdn whichthe Way
’'“Approaching, until the train bad atop
ped. Bntabe, confident in her ability to dross or
bewildered by the head-light of the locomotive
stepped upon the track right infront of it. Col.
Cramer instantly seized her by the shawl to pull
her hack but unfortunately the shawl slipped from
rhouldeis. Perceiving her danger then, for
the first time, she caught, hold of the Col. to pull
herself back,, but his feet slipping on the icy plxt
.form both fell on the track .right in front of the
locomotive. The cow-catohor caught the Col.
and threw him off the track, but he was unable
to get Miss. Beech off. Kerfaet werc caught be
tween the cowcatcher and the trills, horribly
mangled and one leg broken. She gave vent to
the moqtheart-rending shrieks, which wore dis
tinctlyheard at a distance of two squares. As
soon as possible aha was extricated from her
perilous situation andlconveyed to the “ Altoona
House; 1' Pra. -Chriaty and Thomas were prompt
ly 'Calied in and did all in their power to remedy
tbddnjuries anJ.allevlate the pain'of the unfor
tunate girl. They decided that the amputation
of cjne foot was necessary to the preservation of
her life, but she refused positively to allow such
operation to be performed. She said she Was
butia poor girl,-dependent>upon her labor for
her support,, and to lose a foot or a leg would
incapacitate her frdm working and, render her a
public charge, and she would rather die now
than sustain such a .position. Her wishes were j
acceded to and up to the present time the phy -
siciana arc trying to saVe her life without ampui
bitiqu. They may succeed but the result is doubt
ful. At tbeALme of writing this (Wednesday
.afternoon) she is still living and seems to be
mending. Wo trust spe ia. This is a sad case
which ougpt to call into exercise the benevolent
jeriiugs of bur citizens. [■ Something ought to be
done fur her and it only requires .some . ope to
•take tho initiative. ; What
themselves a-Committou tb solicit contributions I
in her behalf ? The noble attempt made by Co!.
Cramer, to save her, calls faith the hearty com
mendation of aIL He is a manly, whole-souled
fellow and it is not the first time he has jeop
arded his own life to save that of others. We
trust that ho may never have cauje to regret bis
alaoity in complying with the dictates of his
noble heart.

ceiobi ate the anniversary of the birth o'f Wash
ingtoo, and, although the number on parade was
Email, they made a very creditable appearance.
We .observed a few persons dressed in the uui
form ofibeQuarils. but saw aqlhing ofthe com
pany 6a parade; How comes this ? Has the
compajuy be.eoiisbaudeiL. or is there B o little

devote five hours to the celcUration of the day

We he id the last supposition is erroneous The
1 miUtary spirit appears to bo rising iu other farts
of the jeountry; companies axe being organized
and thfji? ranks fast filling ; v hy then is it
flagging in AUobna » Is the spirit infused pe
riodically nad'iu different localities at different
periods, that patriotism and pride- iu military
affairs is ia aaort-lired ? Certainly this is not
the case. Thou where else will we rest the cause
than with the members of the company. To the
Rangers, also, a part of remarks are ap
plicable* Their numbers have sadly diminish
ed of late. We hope that this .will not long be
the cas£, and that by the time inspection day
comes dround their‘mnks will be full. If Ko t.

I presume, from mat accounts, that you will
think wo are a very insolent and prevaricatihg
-set of people in this “neck; o’ timber.” Be
this as it may, ever sipce I have been in this
regiop, (termed Texas,). I have always found
peace end harmony predominating: and a more
obliging and benevolent people is nowhere to be
found. All live to the interest and welfare of
their fellow men, and delight in sustaining the
cause of education, promoting' truth, and ban
ishing from amongst them, (not by stratagem,)
such poor, insolent little scamps as “ Alpha,”
who once had his residence here, and who has
lately assailed us so violently.
We had no suspicions whatever of any hos
tile attacks from Springfield, or any other source,
but I notice iu the last number of the Tribune
that “ Alpha ” has been coming down upon us
with a vengeance, accusing us of being guilty of
v faul-mouthed lyiog.K Yet be this as it may.
we are well able to, stand all such “ wraps,” es
pecially when we consider the source, as it ap
pears from late accounts that his veracity is
very much to be doubted. If#ot, I really tlunk
ii somewhat derogatory to hia dignity ns a school
ketpcr (not teacher,) to express his sentiments
in such an erroneous manner. I want you to
tell him that “ Stuns” well knows how to take
cure of himself and don’t thank him'for his sym-
pathies, and also, that I think it would be advi
sable for him to “simmer” right down, or else
look out for breakers in the future,
But to change the subject, things on this side
of the mountain are passing along smoothly:
The generality of our enterprising farmers are
busily engaged iu threshing out their crops, of
the yield of which they can not complain.
Sbiue hove done and are now hiking their case,
waiting the return of spring. x

With the present camber, tho TSfifiane has en
tered upon its third volume. Commenced at*
time when the confidence of the oilmens of JM
tooaa in newspapers and newspaper publishers
was .considerably shaken, if not totally aimihiia
ted, it has slowly bnt sorely restored that coto
fidence, and now stands open a sure foundation,
and is universally acknowledged 4o’ bjs cue of
-the fixed institutions of our town. ; 'Butphis re
sult has not been achieved witbout'hlidr|f strug
gle, and considerable expenditure ,; of tinW and
means on the part of its, editors, i The steady
increase of patronage, however, hs| afforded in
dubitable evidence that their labors hafeboen sp
cinteti. ... • • I';
In entering upon the .now volume! it is^almost
unnecessary to; say that the Tribune will poutiu,-
uc to be “ IsDKPsxoEST ix Brufratxb," be
ing biassed neither by fear, favor uor affection.-
in favor of parties or sects. In this respect it
is only necessary to say that the pHst affords a
fair index as to pur futurecourso. i’ 1 i'
It has always'been our aim to niOke the Tri
bune, a reliable first-class ,J.ocal IWcr/os, wo
believe that in that character kloqei country pa
pers can successfully compete with' their flashy
city neighbors. To this end we have secured
correspondents in various parts of the county,
who furnish us with all the items of local inter--
\est in their vicinity. Wo purpose adding others
to our list as soon as we can obtain-ihepi. Ba
ring the next year we shall redouble our efforts,
to make the Tribune a perfect conipendintn of
Home News—a reliable, first-class Local
Paper, second to none in the country, and as
such a welcome weekly visitor to Our patrons,
whether at home or abroad;
Put while the Local Department Shall be our
special care, we shall id so devote a considera
ble space to Literary Matter, Fra and Ilo
mou, and the chronicling of events of general
interest to our readers. We purpose also pub
lishing from time to time “ OriginaliSketches of
Men and Things ” which will befarnished Jby
our contributors. Wo have made arrangements !
also to have a weekly letter from Philadelphia,
and judging from the reputation ou|,ooiraspon
derit sustains is a popular writer, lettera
will be a rich treat- to our ; v i
A s we arc dcddedly. journalists of the pro
gressive school, wo hate concluded to adopt the
cash system iu out business. Thd neglect of
quite a number of onr patrons to pay Up prompt
ly, and the-rascality of others, has compelled
us to adopt this course. Time and;'erperioace
lias fully proved to our satisfaction that the
credit system will not work with
publishers. From this date no paper will be
sent from this office, unless paid forjinadvance,
arid at the (xpimtion pf the tiuje ipaid’for, if
no; nut wed, will be promptly stopped. This
arrangement no injustice to our patrons, |
while it will protect us from the impositions of
Soulless scoundrels, and enable us to devote j
more attention to our paper.
Recognizing, the principle that contracts to
ne satislactury should bo,fraught with mutual
ocnofit to both parties, and as money in large
amounts, in advance, is of nipre J veluo to us than
when received in driblets, as an induce
aieut- to numbers who would otfaerwise;discon

taken the paper, we offer it at theifallowing

There arc plenty of young gentlemen
as well as plenty of old ones, whose wards arc

advise such of our readers to useTrof. Wood’s
II aii - Restorative, which- will, ih tho coiirse of a

It does not dye the hair like the most of the
hair restoratives, but produces a gradual change
of color from the roots of the Bair to the final
cud, and gives it a fine and' glossy appearance.
’ e have seen many persons who have- used it
successfully, and pronounced it the Only inven
tion which has come tip to their idea of ft “ cure
for grey heads.’? We commenced usingit about
two months since, and if we arc any judge of

-years younger; in fact we are beginning to.look
quite young, and feel very much like gettTpg h
young wife. The change is'mlipachlbus/and it
would be as difficult to find a grey hairihow as
it would be to find an idea in the healtj of the
Buke of Buckingham. We know several old
maids and some young widows, whose are
just beginning to assume a silvery hue, mid who
have been talking seriously about resoking to
this remedy, and we advise them not to delay
any longer. It never fails .~Sr Lortttyinttd
