Verily, wo were disappointed in the “terrible
castigation” we expected to receive in last week’s
issue of the Tyrone Star, not, however, ns the
editor of that paper would flatter himself into
4he belief, because we dreaded it, but because
he bad so loudly trumpeted through this and
other places that be intended to “sew us up,”
while, in reality, his article was only a begging
of the question, concluding with a few indirect
charges, which, as be put them, simply meant
The editor of\ the Star- says he Has always felt
the kindliest feeling towards us, and yet in less
than five lines following- he misrepresents us in
a:manner wjjicb is calculated to-do us nn injury
•where his true Character is not known. He
charges that .we lend our influence in favor of a
certain political party. This is is not the case.
We published an extract of a speech, mode by a
Republican ispeaker, atthe request of a number
of our patrons who are members of that party ;
but we also plainly ..stated at the same time that
oqr columns were open to our patrons of other po-
litical parties, for the same purpose, nud if they
•dp not possess themselves of our offer it is not
our fault. In an editorial, article in the same
paper in which the extract referred to was pub
lished, we commented on “ political trickery,”
and especially upon the contemptible practice
of garbling, extracts from speeches. In doing si
WO bad no reference to particular persons or
parties, but because the; editor of the Star was
guilty and the shoe pinched, he construed our
remarks into an Attack upon him, and to justify
his attack upon us in return, he charges us with
being the aggressors; but this “ stop thief” cry,
By the guilty party, will not deceive those who
read both papers. We did not become the apol
ogist of Carl Sburz, for reasons which we gave
in the article to which the Star took exceptions.
Certainly the actions of the editor of the Star
not in accordance with his professions.
With week’s issue of the Star we are
done, add now come to notice an article in the
issue of Monday of this week, in which we find
theindirect charges of Inst week made anew,
with such alterations that we can now under
stand them. We dislike, and have ever tried to
avoid, personal controversies with our cotempo
raries, bat a mean personal attack made upon
us by the Star, compels us, injustice to ourselves
and others, to reply in like manner; and if we
chan&e to reveal some things, not agreeable to
the feelings of our slanderers, they Lave no one
to blame but themselves; We copy the follow-
ing extractfrom the Star, of Monday last:
“We might have referred more particularly to
.Thomas Ford, and his celebrated raid in Penn
sylvania, in 1856, and have edited Mr. McCrum
tb the witness stand. We might have alluded,
in pointed terms, to somp of the influences ex
erted in behalf of Mr. Blair’s election in 1868,
bringing the Records of Blaircounty in evidence.
We might hafo said something in regard to a
certain offer made week before last to the Bell
and Everett State Commit te, and called upon a
banker to substantiate what we said.”
. Thej first sentence, in reference to the rail of
-Thomas Ford, in 1856, is meant to revamp the
.story put in circulation by IT. Bucher Swoope,
immediately after the ’56 campaign, in which it
was-charged that the Altoona Tribune received
$4OO forsnpporting Fremont. This charge was
fairly and flatly contradicted at the time it< was
'biade, and it was found necessary to transfer the
charge from the Aitoonato the Cambria Tribune.
Mr. Jolly, ns well- ns every other person who
read the Tribune in 1856, knows very well that
we did not support Fremont, and this fact alone
.is»a sufficient refutation of the charge. To set
Jbls matter at rest and stop future harping there-
McCrum, whom the Star summons ns a
Witness, now takes thestand and is ready to be
.qualifi.ed-to the fact that no sum of money was
paid. Slither directly or indirectly, by Thomas
; Pord dr any other person,. to the theb proprie
- tors of the Tribune, for political purposes; and
Mr. McCrum bo w offers to the editor of the Star
«oe*balf the amount said to have been paid the
' Tnbvnt, if he can prove that snob was the case,
jf-e want bo more of this charge without the
proof. i
We now come to the second sentence in the v
extract quoted, in which! reference is made to
the records of Blair eouhtjr. Herein is the black
rad craven heart of oup assailant laid open.—
The atmoapbere Tthichsui?onnd3 a being so lost
■ to sU.the finer feelings ofepmmon humanity
\M-^o : #ei*e' upon the misfortunes of another and
attempt tp construe them into a reproach, pre
sents,ns from a near approach, and , sinks him
. go low that jne can hardly hope to reach him,
- jat not so low but that such insinuations as be
makes, if allowed to pass unnoticed, roiglitwork
tb;jbtfr, injury. ' Bis insinuations are intended
tojconTpy tbb impression that ye bad some.diffi*
-suity.jtt law] in and;, that Mr; Blair was !
concerned therein. and' that be thereby coerced j
ni Into his sjtppbrt. This is untrue. We never I
for or against as, consequently be eoald not
bsvabad any influence ove r ue inthat way.' While
speaking of difficulties at law, we might as well
tell Ailittle more. We had difficulty, financial
ly, alongwithmany other men who
ffelt criffii' of 1857—68. But why had we
the ’simply because a set of as grace
lesascampsas the country affords, persisted in
keeping in their pockets the money we had fair
ly earned, and with which we hoped to pajr our
debts. . Among that number is M. H. Jolly, ed
itor of the Tyrone Star, who stands indebted to
ns to the amount of $25,76, fur work done in
1856-57, and, although frequently dunned, has
not offered topay one cent of it. Such, read
er, is the man who would make the misfortunes
which he helped to bring upen us, the basis of
a mean and cowardly insinuation which is inten
ded to fHph from ns that which be does not pos
sess—a character.
Lastly we come to the insinuation (bat we
bate made on offer to the Bell and Everett State
Committee, in which case a certain banker in
this place is witness. The person referred to is
David T. Caldwell, as be is the only banker in
this place who is connected with the Bell and
Everett party. If he-is the person to whom ref
erence is had, and be says that we ever made
an offer to the Bell and Everett State Committee,
through him, or any other person, be tells what
is false, and wo call upon him to substantiate the
charge. The only conversation we have ever
bad with any'person, which could in any way
be construed cinto an offer to jthe Bell party, is
simply this:—Some time since Mr. Caldwell
came into our office, and after talking over po
litical matters, he remarked, as we thought, in
a joking manner, that in case Bell was elected
President, he bad the disposal of this post of
fice. We replied, in a joking manner, that if
he would insure us the post office, we would go
for Bell. This was all that passed in reference
to the matter, and it certainly does not read
like a proposition to ..the Bell and Everett State.
Committee. If Mr. Caldwell told the editor of
the S(ar anything more than we have detailed,
aud thatdt was other than a joke, we repeat
that it is'falsc, aud M. H. Jolly, or the person
who gave him bis information, are hereby called
upou to prove the charge, or wear the braud of
deliberate falsifiers.
We ask pardon of our readers for devoting so
much space to the charges of the Star. Were
it not that such charges, made iu the midst of
nu exciting policnl campaign, are more likely
to be received and circulated to our prejudice,
by those who side with the person making them,
we would not have deemed them worthy even a
passing notice. Here, where the author is
known,-be can do us no injury. Here it is ouly
necessary to say that such an assertion was
made by Jolly, in order to cast doubt upon its
validity, or elicit a contradiction eveu from Lis
own partizans, few of whom have any confidence
in him. But ns mercy (?) has been shown us, we
must be merciful in return, therefore we will
say no more at present.
Shocli) oo to School. —The editor of the Ty
rone Star should go to school and learu a little
in relation to the time and body of men who
elect the next President, in case there should
be no election by the people. In ibis week’s
paper, which appeared the day before the elec
tion, he appealed to the Bell, men to vote for
McAlister, and against Blair, for the reason
that In case Blair was elected he would vote for
Lincoln, should the election go to the House.—
Now everybody knows that in case the election
of President does go to the House, it must be at
tended to previous to the 4th of March next, up
to which time Mr. Blair would hold his seat, even
though he had been defeated; and consequently,
that Mr. McAlister, had be been elected, would
have bad nothing to do with the selection of
a President. The editor of the Star ’must be
either an ignorant politician, or an accomplish
ed falsifier and deceiver, and warnings and
instructions from that source should be received
with caution.

Correspondence of the Altoona Tribune.
Messrs'. Editors: —Before I left Altoona, I
was asked by some of my friends, who are sub
scribers ;to your paper, to furnish letters for the
Tribune, givijig a history of my travels and a
description of the country 1 passed through. I
also promised the junior Editor that I would
write occasionally, and I now comply. I have
not been idle since I left you, and if I give you
a full description of the country 1 have now
passed through, then this is only one of a series
of 1< n,' letters ; and if they are read with as much
interest as I felt in visiting the different places,
1 am sure a great interest will be manifested.
I left Altoona on the 10th of August, but wit
nessed nothing of interest on my trip to New
York. ;On the 18th of August I found myself
on board the steamship Kangaroo, and dis
tinctly heard the Captain say “ Let go the
ropes.”,arid presently the good ship was out in
the river, with her beak turned down stream,
and weiwere sailing smoothly down the river.
1 was seated about the middle of the ship, and
could see the vessel capering in the water with
a motion similar to a small bird known by the
name ofKildeer,” i e. “up before, down be
hind—up behind, down before.” The conse
quence of this motion was that the passengers
began ito get sea sick. Now commenced the
perplexities of a sea voyage. Passengers were
lying carelessly on the decks fore and aft,
each with their heads resting on one hand, and
in the,: Other baud - a tin vessel, and all were
shouting; “y-0-r-.k,” As for myself, 1 was uot
yet affected in th<i least, but 1 looked forward
with drpad to the time when I would be. About
six; o'clock we lost sight of “ ray own, my ua-jf
tive laud,” and with it went u long. Heavy and
deep sigh, us I caught the last glimpse of the
land. I’did wish if was Pennsylvania—aye—
tbq hills around Altoona, that I might bid fare
well to .places familiar. But they were lost to
my sight; and I.never lost sight of an object 1
loVed so-much, because that land contains my
home—jaye, my wife and children, the jewels of
my hous4-hold. Oh! how much did 1 appreciate
the wonls, '
‘ j; “ 7 here to no place Ike home.”
.Time] passed very pleasantly, I saw a num- ]

\'-'r ■ ■. , .. •. i
up two ,sfreams, and these I I was told were
spc whales, they being , the only ones that
spouted thru.ugh two nostrils. | Porpoises were

ogreoablyuntil Monday, met-
CoLEiuiN. County Antrim.)
September Ist, 1860. )
uiog; 25th, when it was announced that one of
pur number, a lady, had died. She had passed
herself to the captain as being perfectly heal
thy. She took her bed in a few days after she
came on board, and the physician being sent
for, it was ascertained that she bad consump
tion. She was without friends or acquaintan
ces, and gave as her reason for acting as shq
did, that she wished to be upon the ocean to.
find relief. She found relief in death. AH'
were lively and gay when the steward an
nounced her death, and an immediate gloom
was cast over the passengers. She died with
out the presence of a solitary person. In a
short time she was encased in a coffin and placed
in the most obscure place in the ship. Just as
she was found, so she was coffined, —not a friend
to shed a tear over her departure or to sec her
properly encased. Alas I what adeath, to die
at sea.
All was gloomy on Monday. On Tuesday,
about noon, a crowd gathered around the mid
ship. I went to learn the'cause, and saw there
the coffin. Shortly the Captain appeared with
books in hand and read the funeral service, after
which four sailers picked np the coffin contain
ing the corpse and pitched it feet foremost into
the angry ocean, apparently as a feast fur the
hungry sharks that were around the ship in
swarius. It sunk, but rose again and floated
at the surface. 1 was sitting ut the guard, and
as far as 1 could see, the black coffin still float
ed. Poor woman ! found the relief she so
ardently sought fur. sea was rolling very
angrily and the waves were becoming larger and
larger. They rose before us like mountains and
seemfcd to bid defiance to 1 our gallant ship. It
was a sight I shall never forget. As I sat on
the bow and watched the motion, she capered
among the waves like a young duck, and such
waves uS would not melt before her she gallant
ly leaped on top of them, only to settle down
in tbe next billowing vale. And so it continued
until 1 o’clock on Thursday morning, when the
Giver of all said, “ Peace, be still,” and it was
so. As I bad no sleep until this lime, I wnq
glad to fall into tbe endearing arms of Mor
pbeus. I was dreaming of homo and its jewels
—of Altoona and its pleasures—bad just picked
up the Tribune and was about commencing to
read the “ Locals,” when tbe steward called for
breakfast. !• was inclined to pall his ears, but
Was told “ Laud was in sight !" I jumped up,
washed and run up on deck, when low and be
hold, there were, in reality, (he rocky, barren,
shrubless bills of “Quid Ire'and.”
We landed on a steamer, in the cove of Cork,
about 11 o'clock A. M., but did not .get on the
land until u o'clock P. M. It was about 13
days past since we taw land, and to see it was
not sufficient: I longed to stand on it—to touch
it, aye, to’take earth in my hands, for certainly
thirteen days without enjoying what 1 had en
joyed every moment of my existence, would ap
pear a very long time. Such may appear silly
-talk, but let any one, who never before crossed
the ocean, try it, and my word for it he will
conceive the time much longer than it really is.
But 1 must first give you a general and cor
rect description of tiie island of Ireland, and af
terwards 1 will commence where I lauded and
give you the particulars of all particular places
on my route —and I may go out of it, for 1 hear
tuuclb—and write nearly all down.
JL’ho island has been called by the natives,
from the earliest times, “Eri” or “Erin,” signi
fying ‘-Western, ’’ and from most of which its
Other names are derived. Thus, the Greeks
knew of it under the name of “lerna,’’ while
Ptolemy and Javenae called it, respectively,
“lowerna” and “luverua," hence the corruption
“ Hibernia ” By the ancient Britons it was
Called “ Iverdom,” and afterwards named by
their Saxon conquerors “Ireland,” or “lerland,”
the former being ;he present name. The appel
lation of “Scotia.” sometimes applied to Ire
laud, originated in the fourth century, when it
was in common use among the learned. This
title, however, properly belongs to Scotland. It
is called “ Emerald’s Isle” on account of its
beauty, and well may it be so called, for it is a
lovely country. The surface is' an undulating
plain, rising in some parts to a considerable ele
vation, and at others forming extensive levels,
occupied by bogs or moorland. Its scenery is
characterized by openness of prospect, beauty
and picturesqueness, but wants in grandeur
More than one-half of the land, is arable, and
about one-sixth under cultivation, the remain
der being covered with either moorwater or
buildings : there are no hills that could proper
ly be called mountains, though some of them
very nearly approach that rank. The tempera
ture of Ireland is more equable than that of
England or Scotland, the winters being less se
vere and the summers not so warm. This dif
ference is especially noticeable ou the western
and southern coasts, where the effects of the
gulf stream are (mediately felt. The donkey is
used to a very great extent. They are about as
large as a four month’s colt though not so heavy.
The Kerry cove is fast disappearing. I am
told that squirrels are rarely met with nud
wolves never. Frogs are plentiful, but the com
mon toad never found. At a town culled Bally
mena, I saw a notice stuck up in the garden,
reading thus:—•• Poisoned snakes set here,”—
The less repulsive waterjack or yellow striped
toad is * found in county Kerry. What I have
written I have been tol l by persons of good
authority. Bed bugs are scarce, but fleas, oh I
horrible? Two persons should always travel
together, so that they may be of service to each
other, one while the other sleeps,
otherwise to sleep is utterly out of the question.
