The cause of the phenomenon has for years
past been a subject of much speculation among
the learned of the world, but nothing certain or
’■ reliable has ever been produced. Astronomers
hare told us that it was the reflection of the
Arctic iceberg under the illumination of the
God of Day ; but rational as the idea seems,
philosophers have hooted at it, and attempted
to explain it on electrical principles—philoso
phers in tbeir turn, have been laughed at, and
the matter has been an uncertain mystery, i'et
the results of Sunday night's display have proved
beyond doubt that electricity has, to say the
least, a great deal to do with the so-called Au
rora Borealis of the Temperate Zones. All over
our State, (we read in our exchanges,) the tele
graphic wires were rendered useless on that
evening, ,aud at Harrisburg one of the operators
cbanceil to one of the witos, and was
"thrown, by the violence of the shock which he
received, actons the room.” And, moreover,
philosophy as now tpugbt,.(aad actual observa-
tion,) deiaonst^ttes^heifact that the Earth’s »t-
nosphcrc, when surcharged with electricity, is
rcndercd brigitl; .and,on Sunday , night .last, pur
forced to add gn additipbalblanket
m their beds, to prevent a chill—not to mention
lie visible frost on Monday morning. A .ncjr
sabjecl for investigatiob, nt any tati?,. is presen
ted to our philosophers, and we think they will
finally and universally adopt the opinion, that
electricity has more to do with the phenomenon
of the Northern Lights than the reflection of the
tun upon the icebergs of the Arctic Regions.
ATTSStriKD RoEßEur.—-Ou Tbursdftj morning
last, as Geo. .\Volm, desk ip Plack’s stqre-aqross
the way, was opening tke store, he observed'a
Snn passing with several pair of boots -and a
pair of shoes on his arm. The man -looked s
little suspicious, which prorap ted .George to ask
him' where he had obtained his goods, and the
stranger replied' that ho" had got them at the
I’eoplcs’ ; Store. This confirmed
George’s suspicion, as he observed .that the
proprietor of the Stipe Store had, not jet opened
liis cstablisluuent and consequently was not
about, and b.e plied the fellow with a few more
'{ucstionß which he could not answer satisfacf
Urih, wbenhc determined to take the boots from
tie chop, to which operation lie did notserious
iy object, but afterwards made himself scarce,
hheo Mr. Kimball opened his store shortly af
terwards, he missed several pair of bpots which
lad been loft hanging close to the show window,
and on examination ho found that one half of a
broken pane of glass had been, slid.up past the
'■dher, andthe boots thus taken out.' On
making known his loss the boots captured a
ehort time .previous were shown him and imme*
diately identified. When we consider .that this
operation was performed after - daylight and
when a number of persons were qn the street,
ve think it about as bold an one as could well
kc undertaken. *

The Peksdytebian Colony.— The Presbyte
rian Colony project is getting along finely, as
we understand from Mr. Crawford, the Secre
tary.‘ He informs us that ninety-one men,
(most of them having families,) have signified a
desire to embark in the enterprise, and have of
fered to inv|eBt some §50,000 in it. Their vo
cations arojvoried aad suitable, comprising far
mers, carpenters, cabinet-makers, tinners, prin
ters, teachers, preachers, stone-masons, mer
chants. attorneys, clerks, &c. &c. Having now
secured nbont the complement fixed upon in the
first place, the managers of the affair will issue
a call fpr ji meeting of those interested, to be
held in the bourse of a few weeks, to appoint a
committee to visit and repori upon proposed lo
cations for the colony, &c. Several poipts are
offered, and strong inducements ore hold out to
secure the settlement, but no one .is able to give
anything mote than , a vsgne guess as to where
the choice will fall.—Persons at any time desi
ring. information as - to the Colony, should ad

Altoona! Gas and Water Works. —Quite a
large force jof men are now at work laying the
gas and water pipes through the streets, exca
vating the basins for the water and gftaand lay
ing the foundation of the gas house. Should
the weather prove favorable, and all the pipe
arrive in time, the works will be completed by
the first, or, at farthest, the middle of Novem
ber. It is the intention of the company to have
all the pipe laid down through the streets by
the time tl\e- reservoir and gas works aip fin
ished, so that water and gas can beconveyed to
all parts of the town as noon as If is received
into the reservoir and manufactured at the gas
house. Thqse who wish either should signify
their desire ( to the proper persons immediately,
so that the jiipes may be tapped opposite their
residences or pLices of business, as they nfe
laid downf thus saving trouble hereafter.
Show Anpcr.—On Monday morning last, a
travelling caravan - stopped at this place ami
pitched a tpnt on - a vacant lot up street, and
hung out a number of life-size pictures—one of
a lady called the snake-tamer, who performed
various.feats!;With the subtle .enemy who temp
ted and betrayed mother Eve. Another of a
mermaid, with a womnn’-s head and fishes tail,
likely the same one we read of in P. T. Bar
naul's life of himself -together with others which
vvo did not stop to admire. Very few of ouf
citizens exhibiting a desire to “ go in” and “ get
squeezed” or. humbugged-, the proprietor pulled
up stakes- and left next morning. The people
of. Altoona have been eo muoh surfeited with
exhibitions qj’ this kind lately, that it now re
quires sometjiingentra to draw a crowd at such
entertainments. ’
Bovs is rijtE ‘‘Lock-Up.”—Two small boys,
whose names, we did hot learn, were placed in
the “Lock-tip” on Tuesday morning last,
charged with; stealing plums. “ The way of the
timnsgressqr Is hard,” and they have early found
.it s4| We hdpe i* may prove a warning to them.
We think it right to .inflict punishment on boys
for a crime like this, and hope that more exam
ples may be made, nut plum thieves are not
"theonly ones who should be thus dealt with.—

Sunday School Celebration.
Messrs'. McGrcm & Dees The scholars,
teachersi and ‘friends of the “Union Sabbath
School,” belonging to the vicinity of Gwin’s
School House, in Logan township, held a cele
bration on Thursday last, 25th inst. At nine
o'clock in the 'morning the scholars and teach
ers met in the school-room and afterwards form
ed in protesaioh- in classes, each teacher taking
the head of hi&or her class. In front was car
ried a beautifully painted and decorated banner,
having on one side the words “ UNION SUNDAY
SCHOOL;.” and; on the other side the words
INCLINED.” gor this banner the school is
mainly indebted; to the late lamented Dr. G. D.
Thomas,! of Ailtoona, who procured it for the
school Bogie twh months previous to his death.
Thus they marched under the supervision of the
officers of the school—their only music the sweet
voices of the children who song “ Away, away
to the Sabbath School,” —until they reached the
grove selected, .for the future exercises of the
day, near the residence of the Superintendent,
(Hon. J. L Gwin) where, after a short address
by him, t&e .sotiool was dismissed. A number
of swingsihad bfcen put up which were soon re
sorted to by those fond of that amusement, while
others joined in friendly conversation. Here
were to he found the aged, who had attained
their fourscore years, down to the little pratler
in its mothers; { arms. Parents, children and
grand-children were brought together—friend
ships .were renewed—neighbors met not as they
ordinarily meet,; having only time to speak and
part, but with leisure to hold friendly conversa
tion with each other. It is thus a community
is strengthened'in its friendships and its plans
of usefulness. There the Sabbath school as a
living reality is thought before the vision of many
who, perhaps do not see it at other .times.—
The very looks of the children seemed to say
“ come then with us (to the Sabbath School)
and we will do the 4 good.”
The table haying been spread, all Were invi-
ted to come and partake of the goods things
with which it was so bountifully ladehed. After
.thanks were offered to Almighty God for his
goodness !,in seeding the rain, the fruitful sea
son und atmndagt harvest, and his blessing im
plored, all pyespnt to the number of 130 or
140 partook of the dinner. Dinner over, two of
the scholjira recited a dialogue and two others
delivered addresses which were listened to with
interest. |A discussion was then bad as to the
propriety of Sunday School celebrations! After
heating 6f both: sides, a vote was taken which
showed a large majority in favor of annual cel
eOrations. | A resolution was also adopted fa
voring holding of a Convention of the fri ends
ofSabbath Schools at an'early day. Thoschol
an were ; then dismissed to engage in their re
creations jinti! the time to return to
arrived. |A number: of persons from Altoona
an&otherjparts'of the county were present and
CzpreuedlAhempsfres well pleased, not a single
incident occurred to mar the pleasure of the
day. ; Thus ended the third annual celebration
of the school referred to. May it greatly pros
per, smd aboutid in good works is the sincere
wish of ydhr correspondent, LOGAN.

rqwWw wstem as to secure permanent
to accomplish this desired
object, the trneooorse to pursue is, certainly
that which still produce a natural; state of' the Uasthazsrd of vital strength and
life. For . this purpose, Dr. Boat otter Kny fa»-
tfodneed to this country a preparation bearing
Us name, which is not a.nqtr medi<ji4e,-bat one
that haa been tried for years, giving Bolistec
tion to all who haw used it. » The Bitter*
o®emo powerfully uphn the stomach, bowels,
tuid luver, restoring them to , 4 . healthy and
vigorous action,- and thus, by fhesimplt pro
cess of 'ntture, enaMe the sys
tejo to triumph oVerdisease. ,i
For the oteo of Dyspepsia, Indigestion, Nau
wa, Flatulency ,EoB3 of'Appetite,or anyßilioua
Conmlunts, arising from a morbid Unction
of tho Stomach or Bowels, producing.tirainps.
Dysentery, Colic, Cholsra Morbus* &«., these
Bitters hare no equal.
Diarrhoea, dysentery os flux, so gdhcndbr con
tracted by new settlers, and cauSed principally
by the change of water anddiet, viral be speedily i
regulated by a brief use of this preparation.
Dyspepsia, a disease which is -probably more
prevalent, in all its various; forme, than any
other, and the cause of which may always
be attributed to derangements of the digestive
organs, can be cured without foil by using !
directions on tho bottle. For thia disease every
physician will recommend Bittcrhof some kind;
then why not use an article known; to be infal
lible ? All nations have their Bitters, as a pre
venflße of disease and strengtbeher of the ays?
tem in general; and among them all there is'
not to be found a more healthy people than
the Germans, from whom this preparation oma- -
nated, based upon scientific experiments which
have tended to prove the value of this great
preparation in the scale of medical science.
Feveil and Ague. —This trying and provok
ing disease, which fixes its relentless graap on
the body of man, reducing him to a mere sha
dow in a short time, and rendering him phy
sically and mentally useless, ca|n be driven
from the body by the use of HOSTETTER’S
RENOWNED BITTERS. Further,,none df the
above-stated diseases can be contracted, even
in exposed situations, if the Bitters arc used
os per directions. And as they create
nausea nor offend tho palate, and render Un
necessary'any change of diet or interruption
of ordinary pursuits, but promote sound sleep
and healthy digestion, the complaint is re
moved as speedily as is consistentiwith the pro
duction of a thorough and permanent cure.
.For Persons ia Advanced Pears, who are
suffering from an enfeebled constitution and'
infirm body, these Bitters arc invaluable as a
restorative of strength and vigor, and need
only be tried to bo appreciated. And to a
mother while nursing these Bitters arc imlis-i
pcnsable, especially where the mother’s nour
ishment is inadequate to the demands of the
child, consequently her- strength must yield,
and here it is where a good tonic, such as
Hostctter’a Stomach Bitters, is needed to Impart
temporary strength and vigor t<j the system.
Ladies should by all means try! this remedy
for all cases of debility, and, before so doing,
should ask their physician, who, if ho is
acquainted with the virtue of the Bittersj will
recommend their use in ail cases of weakness.
CAUTION—We caution the public against using
any of the many imitations or counterfeits, but ask
for llostetter’s Celebrated Stomach Bitters,'
and see that each bottle bas tho words “ Dr. J.
Hostetler's Stomach Bitters” blown on the side
of the bottle, and stomped on the; metallic cap
covering the cork, and observe that bur autograph
signature is on tho label.
