Tue Scott Testimonial. — On Friday last,* the
beantifol service of silver ware intended to be
■ j,resented Co Thos. A. Scott, Esq., lato Gen’l
<apt , i qOW '* ce President) of the Ponn’a R.
R. Co , "was opened at the Logan House, to: af
ftirJ those who had contributed to it an oppor
lonitj of seeing and inspecting it. There are
J; eK n pieces, consisting of a waiter, coffee urn,
its pot, water pot, sugar dish, slop bowl, cream
pit, soup tureen, fruit bowl, cake bosket and
pitcher. The waiter and coffee urn have the
following inscription engraved thereon ;
ThC .
April Itt, 1860.
I Each of the other pieces have the name of
Thus. A-Scott engraved thereon. The entire
tost of the service was $1,252. It was manu-
I fsttured by Wm. Wilson &' Son, S. W. corner
Fifth and Cherry sts., Philadelphia, and is a
I credit lo their establishment. The workman-
I ship is without a flaw nnd the material the best
to b« obtained. To say that this is a fitting
testimonial fo a deserving man', is nothing more
[ than all who are acquainted with the recipient
i tell knows. It evinces the high pldce which
be occupies in the affections of those with whom
lie has been associated, their appreciation of
iim as an efficient and impartial officer, and is
ircbuke more expressive than words, to those
iho envy that which they cannot emulate.
Candidates for the Penitentiary and Gal-
.otrs.—On Saturday evening last, a crowd of
[bya about half- in their teens, accom-
Mnied J by a few; who have probably reached
their majority, but who, out of respect to the
imiuaurace. wc not call men, collected in
lie vicinity of-the Methodist Church and indul
ged in a breach of the peace, such as would j
live been a disgrace to the dcnizcqs of the Five *
Points in New York City, in its worst days.— ;
Such blasphemous oaths and obscene exprea- ■
tints as came from the lips of the beings there
•oliected,. we never heard before and hope we I
L: v never hear again. The inciting cause of
•.bisUispheniy was a ring fight between a little
.’irkey named “Charley,” who hits been in this
[lace for some time past, and a couple of white
boys who are a disgrace to their color, their pa
rents and the town, and who, if dq not al
ter their course in life, will laud in the peniten
tiary or on the gallows ere they are five years
i.ler. Had a police officer been in the vicinity,
the whole party would have been treated to a
night in the “Lock Up,” which they richly de
arved. ’ •
How to Treat,the Bite of a Uuo.— Dr. Ste
i Lru \\ me, of Boston, in his testimony in a re
'-■-Ht case, which grew out of injuries from the
dte of a dog, furniphed the following valuable
tilrice: *• In the case of the bite of a dog where
toe teeth of the animal penetrate the flesh,-
'tbethiT the dog was known to be mad or not,
be should use the same precautions. He would
the wound with warm water,'extract all
iiic virus possible by sucking * the wound with
bis lips, and then cauterize it deeply with Che
caustic most readily obtainedbut should use
potash if it could be procured at once. The
time in which the effects of the bite of a rabid
dag would be seen varied from two to three days
to as many years; but if no effects were felt af
ter two or three months, as a general thing the
patient might feel hungelf safe. Bites made
through clothing are seldom productive of much
bann, even if the dog is mad; the clothing ab
-•rtis the virus before the tee thT reach the flesh,
ost of all the fatal cases occurred where the
person was bitten on some naked part.”t Coh
cctning the possibility of a cuife in a real case
‘pediophobia nothing was said.

To PiAoraa.—The peach ertipi of
this promises to belarger (ban it has bean
for sis yens past, consequently every igty ig
makingpreparstieiw and calcnlationa, for pre
serving this delicious’ fruit in cans. Some. of
oar lady readers know* Bp' well how to preseri*o
fruits; that any advice from os would be con
sidered gravitons, if not positively impertinent;
but there niay be those who will be benefits
by the following directionsTo preserve
peaches in cans, take the ripe fruit, pare them,
and throw them into cold water, which will
keep them from losing thfcir color, Whenrfeady
put them in cans, adding an much sugar to theta
as would make them palatable. Then set the
cans in a Vessel of boiling waiter, allowing them
to remain until heated, through. A quart can
will require at least twenty minutes to heat pro
perly. Seal at onco, taking care to keep the
lid pressed down until the pement hardens—
This is said to be the best plan for preserving
peaches. ,
Infernal Machine—Not Quite. A few
dajs since, our townsman, Col. L. W. Hall, re
ceived a box,, by Adams’ Express, froni Chicago,
or some point West of that city. Not having
ordered, anything from that part of the country,
and the size aud weight of . the box being rather
suspicious, ho imagined it was either a hoax, or
an * Infernal Machine,” and declined opening
it for some days. At last he lifted it and de
termined on solving its contents. After open
ing the box and unrolling an indefinite number
of papers, ho turned out, wha: ?—why an excel
lent Plaster of Paris -bust of the Peoples’ candi
date for President “Old Uncle Abe,” which had
been sent to him by a friend.
The bust now occupies a conspicuous position
in the office of the Logan House, where it can
ho seen by all who desire to look npon the coun
tenance of the “honest old rail-splitter.”
Regular Habits.—The health of the human
body depends in a great measure on habits of
regularity and careful protection from the sud
den changes pf temperature incident to oar cli
mate. Wet feet or a sadden blast of cold, has
produced an obstruction that has frequently laid
the system under a contribution from which it
has never recovered. ' These are the seeds which
bring around a cough or cold, which, unless
early and carefully attended to, end in consump
tion, from which few recover. The cough or
cold is_. always icurcd by a bottle or two of Dr.
Keyser s Pectoral Cough Syrup- and sometimes
even the latter disease, but very rarely by any
thing. It will always ease the complaint/how
ever, and as it costs a mere trifle, it should be I
tried. It will surely never do any harm. Sold ,
by G. tv. Kessler, Altoona. I
More Improvements.— We are pleased to
note that bur enterprising townsman, Richard
McClain, has removed the unsightly old stable
which stood bn the alley in the rear of the Al
toona House, preparatory to erecting a good
brick building upon its* cite. This is an im
provement that has long been needed in that lo
cality. The new brick building is to adjoin the
Hotel building, and the first. floor to be fitted
up fot a store room and the second story for
sleeping rbpms, the present bed accommodations
ol the Altoona House being entirely too limited
for the increase of custom flowing in upon Col.
Woods, the accommodating host.
Esquire good is also putting up a large buil
ding, with brick front, on Virginia street, oppo
site Hileman’s store. When finished it will add
much to the appearance of the block.
Celestial PnEXOM'ENOs.-fA meteor of unu
sual brilliancy illuminated tiis place on Friday
evening last, but unluckily, we did not get a
sight of it. A coteraporary in speaking of it
says:—“ About half-past nine o’clock, one of
the most beautiful-meteors wc have ever beheld
passed through the heavens. Its course was
from the northwest to the southeast, and its mo
tion was, apparently, hot swifter than that of a
rocket. It had much the appearance of a,comet,
though the tail appeared to be broken into small
portions. It Was' preceded by an aurora: and,
after its disappearance, a small cloud in the
southeastern horizon continued to emit flakes of
light for several hpurs.
Shout Crop of Potatoes.— Wo bear a num
ber of persons complaining of the short crop of
early potatoes, there being only three or four
potatoes to the stock, and these not very large.
For some time past the ground has been too dry
for these esculents, and unless we have plenty
of rain hereafter, the late crop may also be
short. There is now no moisture in the hills,
consequently nothing to help them along. Con-,
sidcring the heavy crop of wheat our farmers
have just housed, they should not complain if!
they are a little short in “praties.”
BgL-llev. Thoa. Mitchell, President of Dick
inson Seminary, Williamsport, Pa., preached in
the Methodist Church, in this place,' on Sunday
morning last, and at Qollidaysburg in the even
ing. llis sermon, from the text, “ißehold the
lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the
world, ’ —John I,29—was satisfactorily received.
He explained and applied the text in a clear and
forcible manner, and mode a very favorable im
pression upon-the large audience.
Oh Saturday evening last, the German
Band of Hollidaysburg paid our town a yisit
and treated oar citizens to a serenade, and were
treated, in return, to several glasses of lager By
our saloon keepers. Considering that the band
has been but lately organized, the music was
very good,-and our citizens have no objections
to a repetition of the treat whenever the Bond
may find it convenient. n
Pic Nic.—The teachers, scholars and friends
of the Maria L. Bo Peyster Memorial School, or
Altoona Academy, held a pic nio in Beale’s
Woods, on Friday last. The day was fine end
the out quite large. Everything passed off
pleasantly. , The .lady „who remembered the
printers with a fine fruit cake has the thanks of
all who partook of it, as all pronounced it ex
cellent. / • •
8&~ The Secretary of the Altoona Gas and
Water Compajiy publishes a notioe in another
column which it would be well fhr who
have heretofore-been leniently - deadt with by
the collector to read and remember.
Renounced that the rumor of the
new \ motive power in Paris is
tra% mid it has beebinade ptoblie; It is hydro

polsion. The benefit to navigation is anticipa
te M being immense doing away at once with
the necessity of coal and steam, which wonld
enable vessels tb perfonn the longest voyage in
an incredibly short space of time. The system
was submitted to the Emperor; so says the re
port, during his sojourn in Italy, by tne inven
tor, M. Cavanna, and is bat just completed in a*
manner satisfactory ienough to be brought to Pa
ris, where it is about to be examined and criti
cised by the first engineers of the day, and ex
periments are to be made at the expense of the,
Government. The savans and practical men of
every branch of science, are waiting with the
greatest impatience to learn the result of the
first experiment, which is to be made as private
ly as possible. The success of this entirely new
machine will determine at once the fate of the
long-established sovereignty of steam in naviga
tion, and the movement is felt to be one of in
tense interest. : '
People’s Party Meeting. —A mass meeting
of the People's Party was held at Hollidnysburg
on Tuesday evening, ut which addresses were de
livered by Hon. S, S. Blair, Col. A. G. Curtin,
and Hon, Henry D. Moore. The crowd of peo
pie in attendance was acknowledged to be the
largest that has attended an evening political
meeting in that place for many years, A dele
gation of over one hundred, accompanied by the
Altoona Brass Band/ went out from this place.
Van Tries Cornet Band was also in attendance.
The speeches were well received by the audi
ence, .especially that ;df Col. Curtin.
-We noticed quite a iaumber of transparencies,
containing appropriate inscriptions, carried thro’
the crowd, and also an emblem of Lincoln in the
shape of an nxe, maul and wedge carried on the
end of a “ Lincoln rail.”
While Mr. Blair was speaking, a large balloon
manufactured of red, white and blue paper, was
sent up, which mounted the air rapidly until
above the houses, when it sailed slowly away
over the hills
