The Committee of Arrangements to prepare

Chief-Marshal, Geo. W. Patton, announced the
appointment of the following Aida; E B. McCrutn,
li. F Rose, Jas. S. Mann, E. -H. Turner, Geo.

All necessary arrangements having been made
by tho subcommittees, heretofore announced,
and there being ao further business, on motion

I>. T. Caluweli, Scc^.
The soldiers of the war of 1812, and the
.Mexican war,,met at SLulU’a Hall, on Satur
day evening last, for the purpose of preparing
for the colebraition. Wm. Garden, of this
place, an old aoldicr of 1812, was called to the
chair. Some 2® or 3(1 of -the soldiers of the
Mexican war were present. We learn that they
had spirited meeting. A commiUee-jvas
appoifftcd ,and! instructed to Invite all the
soldiers of 1812; and thoMexlcan war, who live
in this and Adj|uning counties, to /smite- with
them. A dag had heen cartled in Mexi
co, was brbdglft 'la during the' meeting and
presen Ud Ao of Out war to be car
ried -by them to-.dfiy. One of their number
present wpa appointed to proceed to Pittsburgh
■to procurt a Sag earned at Lundy's Lane, for
\ lhe oIJ soldiers of 1812, and omr carried at the
battle of Chepnltepeo for thi soldiers of the
Mexican war; ;
We can form po correct, estimate of the num
ber of the soldiers of either war who will turn
out, but presume there will be some 12 or 1G
of the old soldiers of 1812, and from 26 to 50
of the Mexican war. Should there be but half a
down, or less, of the old heroes of 1812, there
■«ill be enough to send the patriotic blood ting
ling to the ends of the fingers of every specta-'
tor, and a corporal’s guard of the soldiers of the
Mexican war will inspire feelings of veneration
for those who braVed disease and.death, in that
unhealthy clime, at their country's call.
The preparations making, and now almost
completed, for the grand parade to-day, and il- j
lamination and torch light precession to-night I
arc on the most extensive scale, certainly far J
more extensive than we had any idea they would i
be when wo first mentioned that our citizens ;
were moving in the matter. Should the day i
prove favorable, it will be a gala day and even- ;
ing in Altoona. _ j
The entire : «shops of the Pennsylvania Rail j
Hoad Company will be ,handsomely illuminated, 1
mtd all who know anything about their extent 1
can readily imagine the grand sight they will !
present with a lighted candle before every light I
f gIaBS - Tljp “Logan House” will also be I
handsomely iiluminated, aud it is contemplated
to have a display of fire- works in front of it in
liie evening.
Quite a number of transparencies, with appro
priate designs and mottoes, are being prepared
tor the torch-light procession, which will un
doubtedly be large, and much attraction added
‘Oit by being accompanied with so many Bands
of music. ‘ •
Our streets willbc handsomely decorated with

Several of the board walks around town need
repairing very badly. Would it not be as well
for those who own them to substitute brick
pavements in their stead—especially on the
principal streets Bishop Simpson, of the M.,
E. Church, has consented to deliver a lecture on
Palestine, in the Methodist Church in this place,
some time during the month of January. Due
notice of the time will be given A conven
( on of the .Junior Sons of America will bo held
in Williamsburg, iu this county, on Wednesday
and Thursday, December 29th and 80th
Rev. Dr. Happer, formerly pastor of the Pres
byterian Church, at Tyrone, now missionary to
China, arrived safely at Hong Kong, on the 4th
of September, after a voyage of nine-two days.
Constable Bdyer, of Tyrone, on Wednesday
lost, arrested a man calling himself A. Mussel
man from Lancaster county, on the charge of
robbing a former of $22,00 at Kellerman’s Ho
tel, Hollidaysburg., ....Rounding a corner up
street, the ether evening, in somewhat of a hur
ry, we came within an ace of having a collision
with a fair wearer of crinoline, who was descen
ding the grade at a rapid speed, with brakes
down, but they wouldn’t hold. Ladies.who ven
ture out on slippery pavements should be pro
vided like locomotives, with “ tenders,” os a
tumble would be found neither amusing nor
agreeable with the fashions as they now stand.
Whose duty is it to see. that the gully’s in
the streets, occasioned by the laying down of
the service pipes of the Gas and Water Compa
ny, arc filled up ? A short time since the j
springs of a carriage were snapped completely :
off, on passing over a gully in front of our office.
\ irjginia street is full of such carriage breakers.
Judging from the amount of pork now being
brought into town, we think this weather must
be death on hogs People who consult the
safety and convenience of pedestrians, will
sprinkle ashes or salt on their sidewalks in icy
weather, instead of scrubbing them with water.
It may not look quite so well, but they will re
ceive thanks therefor, where they would other
wise receive curses The Railroad Company
has erected a lamp post at the corner of the
street opposite our office. W e have no fault to
find with the arrangement “ Young Ameri
ca” has been making good use of the x icy hill
sides for the past week, to the no snHftl detri
ment of corduroy and sole-leather Turkeys
have been pretty plenty in market for a few
days past, but the prices asked for them are a
few pennies above our pile, partial as we are to !
the critters We are sorry to learn that Capt.
Jaa. Cramer, of the Hollidaysburg Branch Train,
has been seriously ill for a few days past. His
tralp is in charge of Gapt. Franks Col. L.
W. Hall repeated his lecture on Dr. Franklin, at
Martinsburg, in this county, on Friday 'evening
last, to a large and appreciative audience. .
There are now over eighty inmates in the coun

all it snys be true, and we do not doubt it, the
officers of the law,should bo stirred up a little'.

! Electiok ! — Great Excitement I — The colored
folks of our county have an organization they
call the “Sinking Fund Associationand on
Monday last the election of its officers came off,
and occasioned a high excitement among the
members. There were two tickets in the field;
one denominated the “ Regular” and the other
Guerilla; and the supporters of each brought
into requisition every cunning expedient to win
the day that they could devise, even to the
“ double-header” dodge; but the “ Regulars”
were too many for their opponents and laid theni
out “flat,” electing for President, Wm. Nesbit;
Vice President, 11. Molson; Treasurer, Moses
Brown; Corresponding Secretary, Thos. Shor
ter; Recording Secretary, M. B. brooks; Man
agers,' John Alexander, Daniel Williams, jr.,
Samuel Thompson, Charles Ambrose.— Remitter.
Atxektion ! ins Right ! — -Of course every
body will want something to eat to-day, as peo
ple can not live on excitement alone, (although
it has been said that a few do,) arid about as
convenient a place as we know of to obtain eat
•ables in the line of oysters, cakes, pies, apples,
&c., is at George W. Cunningham’s .saloon be
tween the “ Model” store and the Post Offiee.
He will have a fine stock on hand to-day and
can accommodate all who may call on him.

Harrisburg Telegraph, of Nov. 80. The meeting
alluded: to was held in the Methodist Church,
fmd the minister was Key. 'Wilson, one of the

That Christian Conductor.— In a recent Is
sue wcu published an item, extracted from the
UnTon K£- th % Phil ?; <lelphia Suada 7 School
Union, in relation to a Conductor on the Penn
ifterTe , fiadin S on hoard a min
heard lecture the night previous,
: ““ kecl ho would like to have him hold a
at where the clergyman
2 1 night< The latter con
ented, provided the Conductor could make the
necessaiy arijingements. “The Conductor jump
a!the aext station, telegraphed to Al
toona, that, a meeting be called for one of the
cnurches at once—that it be notified all over tho
town, that on the arrival of the train everything
“ lgh *. b ® “ readiness. It was done. At the
Bta^ oa > the reply came through the tele
grapn that the order was obeyed, and every-
IS, sdy ’ JP 19 meeti “g was held—the
house filled to overflowing, and a solemn occa
.,° au was to;all." Wo have since learned that
the Conductor alluded to is our townsman. Col.
Joseph Weitzel, one of the most polite, accom
modating and popular officers on the road, and
a very zealous and consistent member of the Lo
cust Street Methodist Church.
Fra at Home.— Doti’t° be afraid of a little fun
at tome, good people! Don’t shut uproar
house, lest the sun should fade jour carpets;
and your hearts, lest a hearty laugh should
shake down some of the musty old cobwebs
there! If you want to ruin your sons, let them
think that all mirth and social enjoyment must
be left on the threshold without when they come
home at night. When, once home is regarded
a» only a place to eat, drink and sleep, the work
is begun that ends in gambling houses and reck
less degradation. Young people must hare fun
and relaxation somewhere; if they do not find
it at their own hearthstones, it will be sought in
other, and perhaps leas profigble places. There
fore, let the fire burn brightly at night, and ]
make the home-nest delightful with all those lit
tle arts that parents so perfectly understand.—
Don’t repress the buoyant spirits of your chil
dren ; half an hour merriment round the lamp
and firelight of a home blots out the remem
brance of many a care and annoyance during
tho day, and the beat safeguard they can take
with them into the world is the unseen influence
of a bright little domestic sanctum.

East, Dec. 12, 1859.
Mcssn. Editor^— Next Thursday the celebra
tion will take-place. Then the whole town will
be alive, like a beggar's shirt There will be a
general stirring up of the genus homo from one
end of the county to the other. The fires of en
thusiasm will be kindled in every heart, and
many of those who look on in patriotic glory
wiU doubtless supply themselves with the arti
[ cle at the houses around the corners. Dear
friends, this sixpenny patriotism is horrible stuff.
It is patriotism: of the head, and not of the
heart; it makes you feci too independent alto
gether. It induce# you to fight in time of peace,
and takes all the starch out of your courage in
time of war. While this artificial patriotism is
effervescing; in your cocbanuta, your boasts of
independence pro loud and clamorous, but when
its spirit has evaporated you are the veriest ser
▼il«s that ever writhed under the lash of despo
tism. If you suppose, my friends, that th e pro
per way to observe our celebration is by drink
ing brandy slingji and gin cock-tails, you arc
about as much mistaken as the boy was who set
a bear trap to catOh bed-bugs. My dear friends,
I like to see you celebrate the introduction of
gae and water, if ft be not done in N a vain and
braggart spirit, land my gratuitous prayer is,
that you may enjoy it as long as you are per
mitted to squat ojn' this side of Jordon. To pre
serve your collective strength, your hearts must
all be joined together like tie links of a log
bhain. You must all hang together like a string
offish, and-itick; to one another through thick
and thin like a bunch of burdocks to a bell
wether’s fleeide. Remember, my friends, that with
all your boosted gas and water, you are poor,
weak*.miserable, dependent beings. The same
hand which jprovides you with soup and shirts,
beef and breeches, I can take them all from you
in a little lass thhn no time, and leave ybu as
naked as an dapple jbt|p in mid-winter. Yes, my
friends, you musti Remember that you are depen
dent ka Well as' independent, and that all the fa
vors you reejeivo fire donations from heaven, ’ tod
brought down by angels of mercy and distribu
ted impartially nnppng the grabbing, snatching,
