Delicious Fbdit.— On Saturday evening last,
oor friend, H. B. White, left upon our table a
basket of the finest peaches, both as regards size
and quality, that we have ever seen, and, we
think, surpasses anything of the kind raised in
this section of the country. One of the peaches
measured 9J inches in circumference one way,
and 10 inches the other, were all so near
ly one size that it was hard to tell which was
the largest, This fruit was raised in Mr. W.’s
lot, in East Altoona.
Can any of our citizens beat the above ? •> If
they can, we should be pleased to hew: from
them. Mr. W.’s fruit clearly shows that we can
raise. Just as good fruit pp bore as they can
about the oiiles, iuid all that ia necessary to have
it, is for our people to exercise a little more
care in selecting their trees, and attend to them
when they get them/ \
A Tnnty Wonn or Caotios.—As the season;
for political meetings in the open air is at hand,
• we beg to caution all persons, except the most’
> robust ybang people, from attending snqh gath
erings without overcoata. The temperature of
the air jin the day and early evening is no. crite
rion to judge what it will bo by 8 or 9 o’clock.
Hundreds of persons have taken agues and
fevers, or laid the foundation for consumptions,
by standing in the chilly, Autumn air at political
gatherings. Let two things always be attended
to—first, provide a board covering for your
speakers stands, and second, take your overcoat
with you. Those wiho enjoy the benefi ts of gra
tuitous speahing, Shoald not expect the stump
er to risk a cold or the rupture of their lungs by
speaking .without,a sounding h.oard.
Wril we kniowa
that "iCheap John” has arrived in town end now
.holds forth nightly,in Constable Ely’s building,
in East Altoona. ’ John” is a funny fellow,
and makes everybody laugh who attends his
sales. He sells goods ~a little cheaper than the
cheapest, and .his manner of doing it is rather
hovel. ‘ ‘ John” is a character, and no mistake.
He draws a crowd wherever be goes, and guar
antees to eveiy man the worth of his money. If
you want to “laugh:and ■grow fat” attend his
evening sales, fie says be has everything from
a “ cradle to a pig’s bom.”' See his advertise
Cauoht at Last.—An old citizen of Cambria
county, by the name of Fred. George, and two
young men named Brindle, were arrested on
Monday last and lodged in the jail of this coun
ty, on the charge of having, on Sunday last,
stolen a heifer, the property of James Stevens,
of Juniata township, in this county. They were
seen shoot the heifer, and the beef and hide was
found in their possession on Monday. They
confessed their guilt. George is said .to be an
old offender in the way of taking other people’s
cattle which have been put in the mountains to
Thzft. —On Saturday last, while H. Fettiu
ger and his olerks were busy serving out daily
papers, to customers, some person pocketed a box
of two dozen medals containing the likenesses
of the candidates of the different parties for
President ‘and vVice -President. Doubtless tho
thief thought he was getting a box of gum drops,
as they were in a box of that kind, but it may
be that he knew what they were and wanted
them to sell. Should any be offered for sale in
this place or vicinity, the person to whom they
are presented should inquire where they came

TbbbibiiK Aocidbxt.—Qu Thursday morning \
last, Mr. GeOrge Denning, a freight conductor |
on tbe Penn’a R. 8., met with an accident which
resulted in his death in less than 24 hours there- i
after. According to information he was either |
thrown off or fell from the bumper of a car, near i

“ The deceased hqd for some time been be
trothed to an estimable young lady of this city,
Miss Gray, and both looked forward to a speedy
and happy union. When it was ascertained that
Mr. Denning could not possibly survive, at the
mutual request of him and his betrothed, and
with the consent of the parents of both, they
were married, Rev. Mr. Carson performing the
solemn and impressive ceremony by the bedside
of the dying man. The bridegroom passed from
altar to the tomb, and the devoted bride of
an hour changed her wedding garments for the
habiliments of mourning. The bride of yester
day is the widow of'to-day! In the midst of
her grief, however, there is sweet consolation in
the thought of a re-union with the loved one

The End or Sdmmee. —On Saturday last the
reign of Summer ended, and we have now fairly
entered upon the season of the “ sere and yel
low leaf,” our delightful and unrivalled Ameri
can Autumn. The harvest is passed—the Sum
met is ended—the morning songs of the wild
feathered warblers have ceased—the leaves of
variegated hue are already making their appear
ance on the forest trees —and soon the voice of
the katy-did and the light of the glow-worm
will usher in the Autumnal • evenings. How
short the time seems since Spring was with us,
so swiftly do the seasons pass! The years of ! (
human life, have very aptly been compared to
the degrees of longitude, which shortens as we
approach the poles. The ardent youth thinks
the years of fearful length until he attains ma
turity—then they seem to shorten and decrease
with every subsequent period of life’s journey,
until he exclaims, with Job, “My-days arc
swifter than’a weaver’s shuttle.” Autumn is
the.most delightful season, teeming with the
fruition of the year—the harvests are gathered,;
the fruits are ripe, and plenty abounds.. It in

Hon. John Hickman, of Chester county, will

Deuocbatic CoßGßESstos<u;: Conybbencb.—
The Democratic Congressional Conference of
this district met at Johnstown, on Monday lost,
and nominated Archibald .M’Alllqter, of this
county, as their candidate. We are not person
ally acquainted with the nominee, but learn
that he is a very clever gentleman, popular
where known, and a friend of protection to
American Industry.—being an iron master.
' We learn from the Hollidaysbnrg Regis
ter that four men, named John MoGafferty,
Isaac Lafcrty, Simon Baiy and B. M. Morrow,
were arrested and held to bail in the sum of
$3OO each for riotous conduct, in attacking the
“ Wide Awakes” with stones, while in atten

of scorn, and the hiss of contempt are more
than mortal man can endure. Yet, dear as
reputatior is, and, in my soul’s just estima
tion, prized above all prizes, it is not too
dear, it is not too sacred fop the slanderer to
tarnish and destroy. He can take from me the
coufider of employment, the respect of my
friends—can blast my reputation with his pes
tilential breath, and feel not a pang of remorse;
he glories in nothing so mucii as the slaughter
of character; h e would blight the fairest flowers
in the garden of innocence, demolish the lof
tiest temples of human purity, nud place his
broad stamp of infamy on the holiest servants
of the living God. The slanderer has not a sin
gle pretext or .excuse to palliate bis offence. A
desire of gain may urge some to the commission
of crime.' The incendiary and assassin may be
excited by their base passions to perpetrate their
deeds of darkness and death. But the man that
attacks me with slaudcr has no hope of personal
good; and if he robs me of my character, he
robs me of that which enriches him not and
makes mo poor indeed. For every idle word
that a man shall speak he shall give an account
thereof at the judgment seat of Christ. May
you jand I.vdear reader, bo saved from Ahe sen
tence which awaits that man whose tongue is
the tongue of a slanderer. *•

and during that time have maintained a high character in
almost every part of the globe, for their extraordinary and

Anxiety, Langour, and Melancholy, which are the general
symptoms of Dyspepsia, will vanish, as a natural conse
quence of its cure.
COSTIVENESS, by cleansing the whole length of the In
testines with a solvent process,, and without violence; all
violent purges leave the bowels costive within two days.

lar circulation, through the process of respiration in such
coses,'and the thorough solution of all intestinal obstruc
tion in others.

TISM permanently in three weeks, and GOUT in half that
time, by removing local inflammation from the musclcsand
ligaments of the Joints.

I beg Icavo to call tho attention of the citizens of tho
United States to tho above Wines and Liquors, imported by
Udoltho Wolfe. of New York, whose name is familiar in
every part of this country for the purity of his celebrated
Schiedam Schnapps. Mr. Wolfe, iu his letter tome, speak
ing of the purity of bis Wines and Liquors, says: “ 1 will
stake my reputation as a man, my standing as a merchant
of-thirty rears' residence in tho city of New York, that all
the Brandy and Wines which I bottle are pure as imported,
and of the best quality, and can be relied upon by every
purchaser.” Every bottle has the proprietor’s name on the
wax, and d fac simile of his signature of the certificate.—
The public are respectfully invited to call and examine for
themselves. For sale at Retail by all Apothecaries and

Bead the following from the New Yoi k Courier:
Enormous Business for one New York Merchant,-—Wo
are happy to inform our fellow-citizens that there ;s one
place lu our city where the physician, apothecary, and
country merchant, can go and purchase pure Wines and
Liquors, as pure as imported, aud of the best quality, w e
do mot intend to give an elaborate description of this mer
chant’s extensive business, althbngb it will well reiuvy any
stranger or citizen to visit Udolpbo elfo s extensive ware
house, Nos. 18, 20 and 2U, Beaver street, ami Nos. 1 ( , 1.1
aud 21, Markelfield street. His stock of Schnapps on hand
rcaily for shipment could not have been less than thirty
thousand cases; the Brandy, some ten thousand case's—Vin
tages of 1836 to 1856; and ten thousand cases ot Madeira,
Sherry and Port Wine, Scotch and Irish W hiskey, Jamaica
and St. Croix Rum. some very old and equal to dny in this
country. Ho also had throe large cellars, filled with Bran
dy. Wine, ,tc., in casks, under Custom-House key, ready for
bottling. Mr. Wolfe’s sales of Schnapps last year amounted
to one hundred and eighty thousand dozen, and wo hope in
less than two years lie may be equally successful with his
Brandies and Wines.
His business merits the patronage of every lover ot ms
species. Private families who wish pure Wines and Liquors,
for medical use should send their orders direct to Mr. »»oife,
until every Apothecary iu the laud make up theirnunds
to discard the poisonous stuff from their shelves, aud re
place it with Wolfe's pure Wines and Liquors.
We understand that Mr. Wolte. for the accommodation
of small dealers in the country, puls up assorted cases of
Wines aud Liquors. Such a man, and such anuerchant,
should bo sustained against his tens ut thousands of oppo
nents iu tho United States, who sell nothing but imitations,
ruinous alike to human health and happiness. •

will effectually prevent tins hair from turning gra Jf until

with certainty restore it to its original hue, giving It a dark,
glossy appearance. As a perfume fur the toilet and a Half

agreeable fragrance; and the great laeilitles it affords in
dressing the hair, which, when moist with the Invigoralor
can be dressed in any required form so as to prraervs ita

Prop. Wood: —Thee, wilt please accept a lino to inform
theo that the hair on my head all fell off over twenty years
ago, caused by a complicated chronic disease, attended with
an eruption-on the head. A continual course of suffering
through life having reduced me to a state of dependence, I
have not been ablate obtain stuff for caps, neither have I
been able to do .them up, in consequence of which my head
has suffered extremely from cold. This induced me to pay

dollar bottle of thy Hair Restorative about tho first of Au
gust last. 1 have faithfully followed the directions and tho'
bald spot is now covered with hair thick and black, though
short, it is coming in all over my head. Keeling.confident
that another largs bottle would restore it entirely and per

Prof. 0. J. Wood; —Dear Sir: —In the latter part of tho
yearlsa'd, while attending the State and National Law
School of tho State of New York, riiy hair, from a canto
unknown to mo, commenced falling olf very rapidly, so Hut
in the, short space of six months, the whole upper part of
my scalp was almost entirely bereft of Us covering, Mut
much of tho remaining portion ujion tho side and back part
of my head shortly after became gray, so that yott will not
be surprised when I tell you that upon my return to tho
State of Indiana, my more casual acquaintances were not
ho much at a loss to discover the cause of the change in ray
appearance, as my more intimate acquaintances were to
recognize me at ail.
I at once made application to the most skillful physi
cians m the.country, but, rsceivingfront themnoassurnneo
that my hair could again bo restored, 1 was faced to be
come reconciled to my fato, until, fortunately, in tho latter
part of llieyeni lfcs7, your Restorative, was recommended
to me by a druggist, os being the most reliable Hair Resto
rative in use. I tried one bottle, and fonnd to ray great
satisfaction that it was producing the desired effect. Since
that time I have used seven dollars’ worth of your Reitoi
