Yeeeitcd word that Uij. Anderson had surren
dered. This was discredited by many, although
the eequel proves it only too true. In this case
the American Flag was hauled down and the
Secession Flog ran up in its stood. Here was an
open insult to end defiance of the glorious ban
ner under wfaieb we bare thought ourselves
proud to lift, and that insult wasgirenby those
-whom we, a few months since, regarded as broth

Citixons brook such an insult? No, Sirsl Had
our ensign of liberty been disrespected and tram
pled upon by a foreign foe, the indignation of
our people, and their determination to wipe out
the insult, would not have run so high ; bat to
have It Urns dishonored by those who hare been

In theranks were quite a number of our young
townsmen, (two of whom had been engaged in
our ofice,) and the scene at the depot, where
they parted with their relatives and friends,
was truly affecting. The erowd which had as
sembled to witness their departure, was very
large, and cheered them loudly as they started.
This company was accompanied by Gol. Jacob

We copy-the following description of this ex

seen that the attractions offered surpass any
thing ever yet brought to Altoona :
This Great Exhibition eonaists of five splen
did Panoramas, painted in a new and novel
style, with Dioremio effect, on a scale of mag
nificence never before attempted. They present
to view as distinct and plain aa though one
stood on the spot represented in the following
The city of Washington—the Capitel, with
the new Dome and Marble Extension—the in
side of the Capitol—the new Senate Chamber,
with its gorgeous decoration—the Halt of Rep
resentatives—the Public Buildings at Washing
ton—the Patent Office—the C. 8. Treasury—
the President’s House and Grounds—the Smith

the President’s House, where all the Levies are
held—showing all its furniture, marble mantles,
magnificent mirrors, and glittering chandeliers,

Then comes five splendid views of Niagara
Falls—shewing them in every aspect, in Sum

on the River St. Lawrence—the Hudson River

But the great feature in this Exhibition is the
Voyage across the Atlantic Ocean, from New
York to Liverpool, with a Storm at Sea, in
which all the incidents of three thousand miles
travel on the water ore presented to view, with
a distinctness and vividness mocking reality,
and leading the spectators to believe themselves
on the briny deep.
The great phenomena of the Moon Rising
from the Sea, is to be witnessed by all, while in
the Sconn at Sea, all the elements in their ma
jesty are to be seen and heard with such start
ling reality,.as to cause old men to shirer, and
the young children to elingolose to their parents.
Arriving at Liverpool we have a view of that
city—then a splendid view of the great City of
London—with the River Thames end Bridges
new Houses of Parliament, St. Paul’s Church.
Leaving London, .the beautiful , scenery of the
River Rhine, is presented to view—the Swiss
Alps—Scenery In Italy—Ruins of Pompeii—the

of the Eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, os it appeared
in the year ’7O, when it destroyed the cities of
Herculaneum and Pompeii
This Magnificent Entertainment was first ex
hibited in London for 280 consecutive nights,
and was visited by more than half ajnillion of
people. It has recently been brought to Amer
ica, and exhibited in the Hew England States,
where it has been visited by admiring thousands..
The Exhibition will be shown in this place
precisely the same as in London, and all who

wonderment and delight.

viction thereof, be sentenced to pay a fine not
exceeding one thousand dollar*, and to undergo
an imprisonment by separate or solitary con
finement at labor, not exceeding five years.”

With streakings of the morning light
Then from its mansion in the eun.

And the long line comes gleaming 60/ J

And as his springing steps advance

Like shoots of flame on midnight's pall.
Then shall tby meteor glances glow,
