The Cheapest Paper in the Chanty I
With the present number, the' Tribune hm en
tered upon its third volume.' Commenced eta
time when the confidence of the. citizens of Al
toona in newspapers and newspaper publishers
was considerably shaken, if not totally annihila
ted, it has slowly bat sorely restored that con
fidence, and now stands upon a sore foundation,
and is universally acknowledged to be one of
the fixed institutions of our town. But this re
sult has not been achieved without a hard strug
gle, and considerable expenditure of time and
means on the pert of its editors. The steady
increase of patronage, however, has afforded in
dubitable evidence that their labors have been ap
. dated.
In entering upon the new volume it is almost
unnecessary to say that the THfiuacwill contin
ue to be “ LrozPKHDKKT is Evkstthimo,” be
ing biassed neither by fear, favor nor affection,
in favor of parties or sects. In this respect it
is only necessary-to say that the past affords a
Ihir index as to our future coarse.
It has always been our aim to make the Tri
bune, a reliable first-class Local Papxb, aa we.
believe that in that character alone, 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 finter
efit in their vicinity. We purposeaddisgothen
to our list as soon os we can obtain them. Du
ring the next year we shall redouble bur efforts
to make Die ‘Tribune a perfect compendium of
Hons News— a reliable, vibst-class Local
Papke, second to*none in the country, and as
such a welcome weekly visitor to our patrons,
whether at home or abroad.
Bat while, the Local Department iholl be oar
speoial care, ire shall alto devote acanaidwa
ble space to Litcrarx Matter, Fuji and Ho
mor, and ibe chronicling of events of general
interest to onr readers. yte purpose also pub*
lisbing from time to time “ Original Sketches of
Men and Things ” which will be tarnished by
our contributors. We have made arrangements
also to haye a weekly letter Cram Philadelphia,
and judging from the reputation onr correspon
dent sustains as a popular writer, these letters
will be a rich'treat to our readers.
As we are decided!/ journalists of the pro
gressive. school, we have equcluded to adopt the
cash.system ia opr .bnsinees. The neglect of
quite a number ofow patrons to pay np prompt
ly, and the of others, has compelled
ds to adept’this. corpse. and experience
has foliy. proved ,to our satisfaction that the
credit (/stop will not work'-with newspaper;
publishers. From- this date no paper 1 will be !
sent from this paid for in advance, J
and at the expiration ofthe time paidfdr, if
tud renewed, will; be promptly stopped. This
arrangement does no .injustice to our patrons,
wfaile'it will protect ds from Che impositions of
soulless scoundrels, -and enable us .to devote
more attention to onr. papier. = ~ \
Becoguiiing.the prinoiplo that contracts to
be satisfactory should beiftaught with mutual
benefit to both parties, and as money in large
amounts, ,m advanet, is of mere .value to os thso;
when received in as an •• induce
ment to numbers who would otherwise- discon
tinue, as well as to those who here never yet
taken the paper, we offer it K at tike following

“Is it possible, Rose lieavitt ?” exclaim
ed I, as 1 saw a lady whom I recognized
as one of jbhe beautiful heircsses.of Boston
enter my office. ■ \
“ I dare say you are surprised, hah my
bdsiness is of a strictly legal character, so
you most not wasteany exclamations upon
the. event,”
Rose Leavitt was a beauty and an heir
ess, bntshe wasa strange girl for all that.
Her father had died when she was
about sixteen, leaving something like a
millioh to be dimded between her and her
two brothers. 1 Charles and Henry lieavitt
were much older than she, and both of
them had long been settled down as cpriet
orderly business men. They w;ere respec
ti&le in (he iUllesfc sensie of the word*, and
were never Icpowrn to be erring in the
slightest particular.
' Rose seemed to be cast in another en
tirely different mould from-that in which
they had been formal. Atschoolshehad

tress could control'ber-' She would bar*
her bwh way, a peculiarity towhioh t am
sorry, to say, very many young ladiesare
addicted* ■ -
For the proprieties of mean
for those set forxhalities of life, whighbass
as such in tfze world of fashion—she had
sovereign obntempt. She hated dandies,
hated pianos, music books, French and
German methods, in fact sheseemed stri
kingly disposed to live oat Imrexisteace
after tho dictates of her own faney/orher
caprice, as the reader may choose
gard it. She passed into her twenty-first,
year without having done anything to call
the attention of the world at large to her.
Her whims had only been manifest in the
school, or at the home of her oldest broth
er/with whom she resided.
She was now twenty-two, and was in a
fair way to become historical, as-1 shall
inform the reader. Of course, Rose had
a profusion of always
had them as plenty as suolv-flakes at
But Roaevery summarily disposed of
this crowd, by selecting from them ’ one
who was certainly a very superior fellow.
He was not rich, and had not been very
forward in his attentions, until it was plain
to him, and all the worlds that she had
taken a fancy to him. Charles Carpenter
war poor, but he sincerely loved theway
wod girl, and would: hot bavh beat
i£sh« had notjovod her;
• Thenßpse, after she had secured him
in her toils, as -the spider does the fly,
■seemed a little disposed to play the co
quette. . Now Charles Carpenter had not
assurance enough to deal with a coquettish
heiress, j He was not a man of the world.
He was conscious of the Vast difference in
their social- position, and when'she began
to flirt with another, he did not resent it;
hut seemed to regard it as a change of
sentiment bn her part, to which he could
offer no reasonable objection. Calmly
yielding to the fate which denied him the
bliss of being loved, he let u concealment
'like a wbnn in the bud feed on his damask
Rose, flirted. A new star had risen in
the firmament of that circle in which she
moved in the person of Mr. Sampson
Doele. ! H0 had lately come from Balti
. more, was the son of a merchant prince,
pwned a fine estate on the Rappahannock
in Virginia; with tifo hundred negroes.
Rose flirted with him, and Mr. Sampson
Deele was as constant as a needle to the
pole. Soon the flirtation assumed a more
serious aspect. The elegant gentleman
was ever at; her side, and she never failed
to smile upon him. Poor Carpenter gave
up all for lost, and never intruded upon
her presence.
For about three months Mr. Deele had
clung to her, and then it was whispered
that he had proposed and was accepted.
Rose’s brothers were in ecstacies. They
had been afraid she would throw herself
away upon A poor fellow like Carpenter;
and both of them declared that it was the
most sensible thing thing they had ever
known her ite do; .inasmuch as they did
not expect much of her in the way of mat
I had heard all about these things as
matter of gpsssp. I pitied poor Carpen
ter, with whom I was well acquainted ; but
the wealthy position, prospects and mag
nificent expectations of Mr. Sampson Deele
could not be gaipsayed.
“ How is Mr. Deele?” I asked when she
was seated.: . ■ -
“He is a knave,” replied she, smartly.
I was Utterly astonished at the ebullition
of feeling, i
“ Read that letter, Mr. Docket, and let
it explain my business in a lawyer’s Office.”
I took the document; it was from Mr.,
Sampson Deele. From it I learned for
the first time, that the engagement be
tween the parties had been broken up.—
It appeared, that she had formally dismis
sed him. The letter was strictly a busi
ness document. If he had written any
thing more delicate, he had done so before
this was pejaned. In this he laid aside
the character of the lover, and assumed
that of business, looking out sharply for
his material interest. The substance of it
was that tie writer, would prosecute her
for a breach of promise, if she refused to
marry him.!
“Whatshall I do, Mr. Docket?” she
asked, trying to laugh, but I could observe
the trepidation that filled her mind.
“Really, Rose, this is a bad business.
Why did yqu banish iiim ? I can con
ceive what a terrible misfortune it must
be, to be exiled from your presence.”
“ I banished him because he is a knave,
I can prpve-thai he is a. gambler, a profes
sional gamester.”
“ That will not be sufficient.”
“I feared not, but one*thing is certain,
I will never speak to him again, let the
consequences be what they may.’*
“ Have you committed yourself ?”
“I have.?
“Has there been any letters?”
“Yes; he has everything in blabk and
white.” •
“ Badj bad, Rose.” ■
u I knew: that, ot* I should not have
come to yott with such an affair."
I questioned her closely as to all the
particulatrs of the afihir. Mr, Sampson
Heele cquld have iio better ease sofaras
fißmgs wept then. It looked Just as if
everything had been done ty design; and
before the interview was miihhea' 1 was
. satisfied that he .was; a scoundrel ; that all
he Granted was my fair clients fortune.—
Bntrose was cbmjfietdy in hm jibwer.
JFor two or three days I fretted over the
case and then decided to go to Baltiitiore
myself. Enjoining upon Rose the strict
est secrecy iin regard to my movements, I
departed. >lt would take mncH space to
relate the ‘incidents of my scarohTn Bal
tore, brides it would spoil ~se story,
I withhold them.
On piy return, Ihastcnodto Baseband
desired her to send for Mr. Bede He
came and impudently. stated : the grounds
of his claim toHhe-haifd of the heiress.
“Ilow much Trill buy you off,. Mr.
Beele?”I asked, with all appearance of
deep anxiety. ' N x
“ Well, sir, I do not wish to prosecute
the lady. If she has ceased to love me, it
is not my fault; but it is not right that I
should be a sufferer by her change of sen
timents. She is worth, I ani told, some
three hundred thousand dollars. I will
not be hard with her. Give me one-sixth
of her fortune, and I will return the let

“One word mo,re: do you think your
claim upon the lady is good ?”
“ Undoubtedly."
“Wait a moment, then, and I will con
vince you to the contrary.”
I opened the door of ah adjoining room,
and Rose conducted a lady who had come
from Baltimore with me, into the apart

for the defense,” I remarked.

his hat and rushed from the house. :

In, a word, the strange lady was Mrs.
Sampson Deele, wife of the aspirant for
Bose's hand and fortune, whom the wretch
had deserted several years before.- So
much for my visit to Baltimore. Rose re
warded Mrs. D. for her trouble, aud it was
h profitable journey to her. About a year
after, Charles Carpenter was made happy
by receiving the hand of Rose, and, I am
pleased to add, she has made a very steady
The Duke of Somerset, (a Seymour)
commonly called the proud Duke, employ
ed Seymour the artist to paint the por
traits of his horses at Petworth. One day,
at dinner, the duke filled his glass, and
saying with a sneer—
“ Cousin Seymour, your health,” drank
“My lord,” said the artist, “I believe
I have the honor of being related to your
The proud peer arose from the table,
and ordered the Steward to dismiss the
presumptuous painter, and employ an
humbler brother of the brush.
This was accordingly done; but when
the new painter saw the spirited works of
his predecessor,, he shook his head, and
retired, saying:
“No man in the world can compete
with James Seymour.'*
The duke now condescended to recall
his discarded cousin.
“My Lord,” was the answer of Sey
mour, “I will now prove to the World that
I am one of your blood—l won’t come!”
Upon receiving this laconic reply, the
duke sent his steward to demand a for
mer loan of one hundred pounds sterling.
Seymour briefly replied that he would
write to his grace; he did so, but directed
his letter, ‘Opposite the trunk-maker’s,
Charing Cross.”
Enraged at this additional insnlt, the
duke threw the letter into the fire without
opening it, and immediately ordered his
steward to have him arrested.
But Seymour, struck with au oppor
tunity of evasion, carelessly observed, that
“it was hasty in his grace to barn the
letter, because it contained a bank note of
one hundred pounds sterling, and there
fore, they were how quits.”
For this reason, stepping on a woman’s
foot is equivalent to squeezing her hand,
and equally proper, bat sometimes more
convenient, as it can be done under the
table. Be careful, however, never to at
tempt it at a crowded table, for fear of
making a mistake.. We once saw a lady
very much confused, who was trying to
give a signal to a gentleman opposite, and
instead of his, she trod, and' pressed on the
corn covered toes of an old bachelor. He
bore it as long as he codld, when be very
quietly remarked :
“Madame, .when you wish to tread on a
gentleman’s toes, he particular arid get the
foot that belongs to him—for the last five
minutes you haVe been jamming my corns
most unmercifully.”

Thill distinguished divino, Unquestion
ably the most popular; pulpit orator in the
United States, has an enviable faculty pf
impressing upon his hearers in short, terse
sentences, the opinions which he wishes
to inculcate. For example take the fol
lowing maxima, selected from a work enti
tled Life thoughts, a volume of fragments
gathered from his extemporaneous dis
course by a member of his congregation:
“I, think the wickedest people on earth
are those who use a fbrce of genius to make
themselves selfish in the noblest things
keeping themselves aloof from the vulgar
and the ignorant and the Unknown: rising
higher tad higher in taste, till they sit,
upon the ice, oil the mountain-top of etor?
nal congelation.” ,
“Men afraid of slight outward acta whioh
will injure them in the eyes of others,
while they are heedless of the damnation
which throbs in their souls in hatreds and
jealousies end revenges.” ‘
“ Many people use their refinements as
aspider uses his web, to patch' theweak
Upon, that they may be mercilessly dpvonr* '
ed. Christian men should use refinement
on this principle: the more ’ I have, the
more l .owe to those who are less thahl.’?
“ The most 'dangerous, infidelity of th%
days is .the infidelity of the rieh and ortho*
dox churches.”
“It is not well for a man to pHy oreaiixl
and live skim-milk.?

“ There are many troubles. jhtt
can’t cure by the . Bible and ; the Hymn*
book, but which you; can cure by a good,
peibniption and a breath of fixah’air.
u lt would almost seem as if there were
a certain drollery of art which leads men
who think they are: doing one thing to dd
another and very. different one. . Thus,
men have set up in' their painted church*
windows the symbolism of virtues and gra*
ces, and the images of saints, and even of
Divinity itself Yet now, what does the
window do httt mock ' the separations and
proud isolations ef Christian men ? .
there sit thti audience,, each one taking I
separate color; and ‘there are bluaOlma
tians and red Christians, there are yellow
saints and orange saints, there are purple
Christians and green Christiana; but, how
few are simple, pure, white Christiana upi*
ting; all the cardinal graces, and proudi
not of separate colors, but of the whole
manhood of Christ !”•
