I a wxixfiiUKKTXD TqWkmjof Rbspxot. —Many'
I of our readers are no doubt aware of tho pro*
I motion of George W. Grier, Esq., late Foreman
I of the Pittsburgh Shops, to the responsible po-
I gUlon of “ Master of Machinery;,” over the en-
I line of the Pennsylvania Railroad. This ap
jpoiatmoat necessarily involved his removal'to
I this place, and dissolved, in a partial manner,
[ jj[ 3 connection with the Engineers and Firemen
lof the Western Division, many of whom bad
I drawn the first throttle and thrown the first
Istlck of wood under bis administration, and who
I could not suffer the relations which had so long
land satisfactorily existed between them, to be
■dissolved without testifying, in a suitable man-
Iner, the bigb estimation in which he Waa held
■by them, as an officer and a gentleman. Accor*
Idingly the presentation of a gold watch and
I chain was decided upon, in of which
[ a committee, consisting of William Wills, rep-
I resenting the Passenger Engineers—James
I Smith, representing the Freight Engineers and
John W. Ridley, representing the Flrmneb, ar-
I rived in this place bj the Express Train, on
Monday morning, and having called Mr. Grier,
into bis office, Mr. Will*preempted tbejtoken,
[accompanied by a few appropriate remarks. —
[lie assured Mr.rO. tijab wherever hlalot might
[be cast in the future, tbo weU-wisbes of the en*.
[tire Division would accompany .him, and that
[so long as bis connection with lire Pennsylva
[nia Centi^-aontinacd—which,thoyhopedwould
[be to the end of his Railroad career—he could
[calculate upon , their sustaining him as one man;
■confident that be—a working .pisnand pne wbo
[bad justly risen from their'.ranks sqlely;bjrbis:
■own untiring: exertions and acknowledged me
lehanical abilities—w6uld properly appreciate a
[faithful dischatae of duty on theft part and at
[the same time .ask nothing at tjieir hands .which
[the best intemtsof the company and the men :
[did not alike demand. .;
Mr. Grier not being aware of the intended
demonstration wastal;ea altogether by surprise.
He said they a)l kpew that he,,eten if prepared,
could not express himself in a manner to do
justice tO;his feelings,-and he hoped, !therefore,
that they would exciuo him : from. attempting an
extemporaneous address. Mr. Grier was evl
i dentiy much affected by the affair, and remark
ed that, much #s .he prized this token just re
jeeived the sentiments which { accompanied it
were of much -more value-to bim. Being per
fectly, satisfied- that no officer can satisfactorily
discharge his duties unless he eqjoys the confi
dence and. respect of the men under his charge
os Well aathat-of tbe officers placed over him,
he had always endeavored to secure this, and
was pleased;.to know that he bad tosome extent,
succeeded ; .tiiat,his coxirse in the future, in the
[performance of the duties of his new'office,
would-be the same end, and be hoped
with a like result Mr. ,G. again thanked the
[g?ntienym for the elegant present he had rc
| ceived at their bands, advising them to continue
| to perforin their du ties in a satisfactory manner
•o long as they remained in the service of the
| Company, and assuring- them that by endeav
| oring to promote its interests,. they would cer
| tainly promote their own.
| Ihe committee then withdrew, evidently much
■pleased with the interview and. interchange of
■friendly feelings. 1 -
I It always gives us pleasure to .record eridea-
Ices of good-will existing between employers and
■employees, but in this cam wo have a peculiar
■gratification, Mr. Grier is emphatically a work
ling, as well as a self-taught, man, and is always
■ready to put bis shoulder to the wheel when no-
Iccssity requires. From a poor apprentice-boy,
■he has risen, by his own exertions; to the fore
■most rank in his profession. Having commen-
Kced at the foot of the ladder, and gradually as--
pended to his present position, be can. foily ap
preciate the titoationof thqse under.his charge,
land it is therefore not surprising that he has
I succeeded in securing their good-will.
| We congratulate [the company upon haring
[secured the services of one so well-qualified to;
[ promote the interests of the Road, and also the
| men under him, that one of their number, who
[knows their trials aad can appreciate a faithful
[discharge of duty, has been placed over (hem.
19* Morality appears to be at alow ebb in
Altoona. Tbe' load department of the' Tribune
|of last weekis almost entirely filled with rob- j
.beries; from petty ,thefts to .{hiring highway;
| attempts. The recent discharge of 140 men by
the P. R. R. • Co, in that place.-who were get
[ ting up a ** strike,” may have, bad something to
Uo in produmng this sod state of affairs.—
We hare ever been tanghtthat the slanderer
was an individual more morally debased, more
[contemptiblymean, and a greater villain jbwi
the most daring thief or burglar, Shakapearo
[beautifully portrayed tbe difference In the fol
lowing lines:
“ H« who steals my parse steals traib
Rat be that filchce from mo my good name, x -
RoW me of that which not enriches him,
And nukes me poor indeed.”
We commend them to the calm consideration
iof'the junior of the Herald, who claims the
paternity of the above item, than whom a more
abusive slanderer, if we may judge from his de
partment of the paper, can not ho found in the
Interior of the State. We beg him,,ere he again
fcomments on the low ebb of morality in neigh
boring towns, to rid his own of a viler specimen
bf immorality than ever disgraced this place,
py taking a hasty exit therefrom.

With one exception, that of the nominee for
Coroner, wo are unacquainted, personally, with,
the gentlemen composing the above ticket.
This is owing, however, to our limited acquain
tance in the county anti the foot that we ham
taken little ornopart in political or public af
fairs. K number of those named are well known
to moat af the people of the county, personally,
and to us by reputation; and we feel no hesita

are concerned, they ore as popular men aseoold:
Jbave been selected.
It was ‘boped and expected .that a different

proceedings of the convention, that a resolution
waa offered to the.effect that it was inexpedient

this resolotion was not adopted the proceedings

in the ficld,andanotber yet to be nominated.
What tlte result wtU-bCfShoakl they all continue
on the track, is easily.surmised. Theeffcrts of
the admipistration party, will be directed to one
object, that of 'preventing a union between the;
Amcricanand Republican parties, and in the
accomplishment of this lies their only hope of
success in this county, if we may judge from the

Ison Cixx Couksbcial College, PirrsAima,
Pa.-—Our attention has been called to the sue-:
cess, growth and great popularity of (his Insti
tution, bynotieing the many improvements on
the Building this spring, making it an orna
ment tofur City. The exterior is finely paint
ed and decorated with now signs and transpa
rencies. The interior of four large Balls, 20 by
40, 22 by -70, 20 by 80, will be found beautiful-;
ly papered and carpeted,' and furnished with
every convenience suggestive of a njodel coun
ting boose. ■ These Ralls are well filled by above
200 Students. Upwards of 60 young men have;
entered this school within the last six weeks.—i
Now considering that this is the dull season of
the year for Commercial Schoolsr~'tbis plainly
shows that the present popularity and success
of the Iron City College are entirely without
precedent. The Business men of this City refer
with pride to'this Institution, and we recom
mend it to yonng men, parents and guardians,
as the our country affords fox acqui
ring a thorough commercial education for ac
tive business life. For Circular and specimen o/
Penmanship address f. Jenkins, Pittsburg Pal
—Evening Chronicle,
A friend has requested us to call the
attention of those Whose business it is to abate
such nuisances, to the fact that « number of
persons are in the habit' of collecting in the
vestibules and about the doors of some of the
churches, during the hours of evening service]
and annoying those who occupy back or gallery
Seats, with their cont'mdal talking and running
in and otit of (ho chnreh. Especially was this
the case at the .Lutheran Church on Sabbath
evening last, when the annoyance was so great
that those on the gallery could with much diffij
unity distinguish what was said by tbe minis
ter. We are ashamed to be compelled tp add
that some bf those who thus misbehaved ore
ypung men. and who no doubt wish to be con
sidered gentlemen, but they lack the first prinr
oiples'ili&t constitutes a man a geutleiran. If
ijhey do qotwish to go into the church, or havb
no desire to listen to the preaching of the gosf
pel, common sense we think'should teach them
to stay away from the house entirely, and not
disturb tlibse who do wish to hear and leorni j
Spanish Quabtees.— Two of tbe remaining
evils of tbe late suspension are the circulation
ofgpanisb quarters and unbankable money.-|
As before the suspension, business men ought
quarters for more than 20: centos
or if,token tft par they should pot be paid out
again, but collected in sums and carried to the
mint to be .exchanged for American silver. Ip
this way they bring from 22 to 25 cts. each.—
And the notes of our interior Banks ought toj be
collected and sent borne' by an agent and the
gold demanded Jqr them. If .this plan were
f°r a.time .these Banks would make ait
arrangbteent to keep \thoir notes at par ip
Philadelphia. It may not beknown to the pub
lic generally ,that these Banks pity specie at
their counters, but do not settle their balances
in .coin ot Philadelphia, consequently thmr p*-
peris generally 1 to 2 per centdiscount Can't
something be done to remedy this evil 7 r ' |
Shall w* hav*a Fourth or Jult in At
toora!—This question is now being agitated
by some of -car citixens, who propose to cele
brate the day in the good old-fashioned way, by
gathering together all the men, women and chil
dren in the place, and repairing to an Adjoin
ing grove and having a general jollification.—
We call attention to the subject at this time,
for the purpose of requesting the different so
cieties in this place not to be' too hasty in get
ting up celebrations of their own, and* also to give
notice that a meeting will shortly be called for
the purpose of completing arrangements for a
general celebration, in which it is hoped that
all associations and denominations will take
port We shall speak more at length of the
matter next week.
Ball and Suffer.—We have recently printed
navigations for a Ball and Supper to be given at
the Washington Hotel, in this place, on the
evening of the 16th of Juno. From the char
acter of the Managers announced, we anticipate
it will be a grand affair, and that all those who

RsHACis dirGEM. Smith.— The remains of Gen.
P. F. Smith passed through this place, on Thors
day last, on the Fast Line, accompanied by an es
cort of twelve; members of the Duquesne Greys,
of Pittsburg. The car appropriated by the
Company jfor the purpose was suitably arranged,
being heavily craped on the outside and deco
rated wjth couple of American Flags oh the
inside. Quite a crowd had collected at the
depots hoping that au opportunity would be
given to obtain a sight qf the honored dead, but
the ear being kept looked, they wexq' disap
pointed. :
“AiraA” is Teoubus.— We notice in the
last pf the DUtirsvUle Record, that our
correspondent, “ Alpha” has stirred up a hor
net’s nest about his ears, by the reference he
made to the “ widows, old maids mad marriage
able ladies” of Blairsville, in hie first letter to
the Tribune, from that place. Onp of the “ mar
riageable ladies” tikes him in hjaiid and draws
him over the coals in & pretty rough manner,
and promises him a little more of the same sort
should he again allude to them. Whether
“Alpha” -will “dry up” at her command or
not, remains to be seen.
Tin elt Advice. —To those who are subject to
Coughs and Colds, and those various Pulmon
ary Diseases incident to oar climate at this sea
son of the year, we would advise the trial of a
bottle of Dr. Kcyscr’s Pectoral Syrup, by this
time well known to our community, and a med
icine that stands higher for its curative proper
ties than any other medicine with which we are
acquainted. ; It is a matter of wonder to us that
any person will allow a Cough or Gold to fas
ten on the lungs when so pleasant a remedy is
at hand.. Ypu con bay it at G. W. Kessler’s.
Pehhakbhip.—Thorough and practical in
every other department, Duff’s Merchont’s’Col-
Icge, of Pittsburgh, furnishes unequaled advan
tages to the student for the acquisition of a
splendid style of Penmanship. Professor Dan
can, who has charge of this branch, has long
stood in the front rank of American Chirogra
phists, and many of his students have won for
themselves high positions in the art. —PUUhurg

My Young Friends:—You have doubtless
heard or jfead of the great Bdl Crevaeee apjpo
rite the of New Orleans, through urmoh
the Raters of tho Mississippi ore pouring tbem
selves with an arrow's speed, and in 4<uthtity
equal: to ihe Susquehanna. This ww<wf« i$ a
break in-the levee, or embankimeiri thrown up
to protect t|e low-lands from feeing overfqwu
by the Mississippi. But the swollen condition
of this great Father of Rivers, by the late
heavy and rimost incessant nuns, has created
such an imniense pressure, that in several pla
ces the fto« has given way, and thus is formed
a erevaete, through which rite water pours and
foams like mad, dessolating and overflowing
thousands upon thousands of acres of the best
sugar growing lands. Now, young friends,
there Was a erevque ia my time, last week, which
ran away with no little of it. This is my apol
ogy for not greeting you with the accustomed,
lu my lost two letters, I have spoken at some
length of a few of the dangers Which surround
you in this place. But you enjoy some advan
tages too, and of them 1 wish now to speak.
It the first place, the character of the town
is a matter of very great advantage to you, by
way of inspiring you with energy and forming
in you active, industrious, and correct business
habits. In life, energy, industry and business
opportunities it is no ordinary place- It is none
of yoor “ ojae-horse" towns. No.sir. it baa
tfco y«sl city* bun about it. -sjbtop is many a
jpbme dubbed **eUy,” ia the Wcst,apdeven in
this country, (Tyrone, for inBtance,)that will
not compare with it, either i» number of inhab
itants, wta|tb, industry orburineas. - Nuwwho
dtocH not know that to live, in, or be connected
in business with, such aplace, has an inspiring
effect upon * mail* which is calculated to call
out his energies: and make blni, in his habits,
partake of the character of the town and peo
pie around him. Bring a man from one of your
dried np, finished towns, like foine we could
name, not a hundred miles off, and behold what
a change. Uesocms to be anew man, with
fresh life, new energy and changed habits. The
fret is, a man oan hardlj help bat be like those
around him. If Jbe Ores in a town of iasyloaf
era, he is Mosty to be a lot for too; b«t If be
Hm In 'Altoona, where every bod/ seems to
have thdr hands foil of business of their own,
and. attend to that without ihedling with others,
he can hardly helpbeing like Altoouians. Here,
where everything is done on an active, liberal
scale, men learn to be active and liberal. The
difference between living in some other place
and here, is Just about the difference between
the speed of one of the bid six* hone> Conestoga
teams and that of the Fast Line on the P. B . 8.,
with the “ Gaselle” as your horse and the good
humored, good-hearted Harry Gray ns driver.
Why, so inspiring is it to be in a plaei like this,
that even Joe Weitzel, stern and exact as he. is,
can hardly keep the “-Blazing-Star” Within the
limits of schedule rime, Bren the locomotives
seem to .catch the spirit, and some time break
over all restraint, for the other evening, with all
Joeoonlddo to hold her bock, the “Blazing
Star” held up before the Logan House the fifti
eth part of a minute ahead of time—Schedule
No. B—that is, if Bob. didn’t make that much
of a mistake in making It out, or if my watch
was correct (for the correctness of which 1 would
not like to vouch.) Now then, young gentlemen,
how is it possible that you should live in the
midst of influences like these, without beingl
inspired by them. It is not possible. Uncon-i
sciously to yourselves your habits will, must be
moulded by such surroundings. It is to you u!
decided advantage, and if you use the advan
tage aright, it will be of service to the world, as
well as yourselves. N
To illustrate this point a little further, let me
cite an instance. Here is the General Superin
tendent of tfaeTennsylvonia Railroad, acknowl
edged on all hands to be one of the shrewdest
and most active business men in the State—kind,
aflable, gentlemanly, and yet unflinchingly firm.
Now suppose the force pf circumstances had
kept Irim all his life in London—rthe place of his
birth and boyhood—a little village at the east
ern slope of the Cove Mountain, in Franklin
county. Fa., is there any probability that in
that case his business energies and qualities
would ever have been so fully called out and
thus perfected! To my mind there is not the
siighest probability, of it. Circumstances make
men; men do hot :create circumstances. ’Tis
said, '
“Thero u a tide in the affairs of men.
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune.”
The circumstances which surround you are well
calculated to make you active, energetic, indus
trious citizens, nnd will, if you allow them to
produce their legitimate effect
Another advantage enjoyed by yon here, is
the liberality with which your labor and efforts
are reworded. -I scarcely know of a place where
labor commands a higher price. The advan
tages to you are not so much what you are able
actually to save, as the liberal and enlarged,
views of matters and things which it is likely
to beget in you. It may be that after oil you
do not actually save more than some men would
do iu other places at less wages; for liberality in
the reward of labor is apt to create a highet
price for the necessaries of life. But here is
the thing—you put a man down to very low
wages, and it makes him narrow-minded and
contracted in his thoughts, his feelings and his
actions. While on the other hand let a man
feel that he is liberally and punctually reward
ed for his work, and he is most likely to be free
hearted and liberal in all Ms ways. Look for
an illustration of this iu what Altoona has done
in- the last ftw years for public purposes.—
Where in the State—perhsps in the Union—is
a place, which for its population and wealth,
has in tho samo rime expended os much for
public improvements ? lam yeiy sure I knew
of no place. And how can we account for it
but in the liberality of the people, brought
about by the liberal scale on wMch everything
is hero done ? I Jpowof no other way.
Another advantageJo you, young wen, is the
stimulus to which here exists. That
stimulus arises from die prospect of promotion.
It is the standing rule of the P. R. B. Co., to
promote their own men s as fast as vacancies
occur. Some of herihighest functionaries at
present, onbe occupied subordinate stations.—
True merit, the result of their own efforts, has
elevated them to positions. The
rule according to wMp| they promote, is merit—
not time in the service. Here then is a stimu
lus for yom Set your bim high, nor relax an
effort until you havereached the mark.' I have
some more to say to you abbot your advantages,
but must "for the present bid you adieu.
A Cainl from Samuel Swan A Co.
TO THE PUBLIC,—The extraordinary course j
panned by the rival managers of different Lot
teries ' to. 'injure nb because our liberal schemes
and prompt manner of doing business has ma
terially affected them, compels us to call special
attention to the facts, which all who deal with
us know already; that is, that our Lotteries are
legal; the managers and trustees honest and
honorable men; that we have sold more prases'
in the last twelve months than all other Lotte
ries in the Union, and that they have been
promptly cashed in all cases on presentation.
The effort to injure us is aimed not only at
our business by our rivals, but is also intended
to act politically on one of onr partners; and
wo assure our friends and the public that with
owe comosbU au is Bronx, and this, the legal
investigation which we shall urge to a hearing,
will folly demonstrate.' in 'toe meantime onr
business will be conducted asusnhl.

QBkdffa.—Professor Wobd’s Halt Tonic restores
the color, not by the nitrate of stiver process,
bat by & restoration of the healthy functions
upon Which the original and natural color of
the hair and its moisture, its gloss, its life, and
consequently.its original beauty depended.
Professor- Wood, at the age of thirty-seven j ears,
was as gray as a man of eighty, ami his hair
was dry, thin and dead. Now he has not a single
grey lock upon his crown, nor is his hair thin or
dry, but soft, pliable and moist ns that of a
Child of five yean. This preparation acts upon
the loots, for after an application, that portion
of this hair nearest the scalp is found restored
to tire original color, whatever it was, whilethe
ends of the hair sow gray. Try Wood’s Hair
Tonic, find dn not apply any other till after you
bnvfc thhk With Ibis resolution you will noror
have occasion to use n hair dye.
