Hicham fob the Fourth or July. —Fourth
of Julys follow each other much more rapidly as
we grow older. To the juveniles of the present
dav, we presume, it is as it was with os, when we
were passing through that happy period, the Fourth
of Julys are an age apart, and they would like to
have at least two a year. On that day every
youngster is privileged to do as he pleases, so he
thinks, and in too many instances he does it. —
Fire wheels, chasers, spit-devils, sky-rockets, tor
l*Jocs, bengal lights, squibs, etc., are his delight,
and lie can find them all; at Fettinger’s Oak Hall,
where may also be found a large assortment of
Hags and other decorations for the coming anni
versary. Fet. has just received a decidedly hand
some stock of fancy notions, such as china mantel
ornaments, largo china dolls, children’s toys, song
looks, novels, violins, photograph albums, a beau
tiful article, a large stock and great variety of
walking canes, fishing tackle, and other articles
■■ too tedious to enumerate.” If yon want to view
the beautiful, call at Oak Hall.
V*s ASburgh & Co.’s Menagerie.—To-mor
row (FridkJ,) this great collection of living hcasts
and btrds—the only exhibition of the kind in the
Carted States—will arrive in town with its enor
mous golden chariot, the great elephant Hannibal,
and all the animated wonders which wit) be fbund
described in the advertisement. The grand pa
rade to be given in tbe forenoon will be a pageant
of great splendor, apd all will have an opportunity
of witnessing it gratuitously. The colossal lent,
which is described as being an exhibition of itself,
will be open both afternoon and evening, and at
each exhibition a variety of astonishing perform
ances by highly trained animals will add to the
attractiveness of the show. There is instruction,
as well as. amusement, to be derived from a visit
to such an establishment, and hence, wherever it
goes, it draws out immense crowds of the very best
portion of the community.
Bbownlow’s Book.— We have been reading
I‘arson Brownlow> Book, and, although we had
previously read a number of the articles copied
therein, which were published in his paper, the
Knoxville Whig, during last summer, yet we pe
rused them again with interest and still more ad
mired the courage and loyally of the man while
surrounded by such a cut-throat band as infested
Knoxville. It will pay to read this book, as from
it will be obtained a correct knowledge of the ori
gin of the rebellion. The proof is given with the
arguments. All who are able should purchase a
copy of the Book, and leant whit it was, and in
some places is yet, to be a Union man. Few men
would havcßorne np under the pressure as Brown
low has done. Nothing but his true courage Saved
iiis life. They were afraid to kill him or hang
Mm. The Book can be had at Andy Clabaugh’s
store, in Brant Bow.
Counterfeit Com.—The Baltimore Sun says:
"A large quantity of half and quarter dollar coin
ate now in circulation in the city, and they are
generally so well executed ns to entirely escape the
notice of those not familiar with metal. Some of
them are said to be composed of a portion of silver,
am} ring almost as well as the genuine coin,
though they are utterly worthless. They are
heavily plated by aid of the galvanic battery, but
are light, and more- easily detected by scraping the
surface than otherwise.”
We publish this for the purpose of patting onr
citizens on their guard. Doubtless the same spu
rious coin will be circulated here, if it has not al
ready been done. . - ,
Rent.—We want no better evidence of the rapid
growth and prosperity of our town, than the fact
that— although a great many new buildings are con
stantly being erected—almost any kindiof a house
commands ah enormous rent. This being the case,
why do not onr capitalists get their eyes open—
awake to their interests—and erect more buildings?
Money invested in this way pays .well —much bet
ter than patting it in Bank, or boarding it np
in stockings. Then, get to work—erect sub
stantial buildings, and improve your lots—thus,
" ,u add to the beauty of the town, (which, by
the way, wont hurt it a bit,) you will increase
>onr own income, and you will contribute to the
welfare and comfort of families less prosperous
than you have been.
. Gas & Water Stock.—By referring to a no
lce in another column it will be seen that the
soanl of Managers of the Altoona Gas & Water
onipeny have declared a semi-annual dividend of
Joorptr cent on tjj e j r capjml stock, clear of State
,ax ’ Wable on and after July Ist, 1862, at the
office of the Treasurer, B, F. Rose, Gas & Wa

Seatons Accident.— Quite a serious accident
« on Tuesday afternoon, at a barn-raising
at .. r ' Kellerman’s, near Hollidaysburg, by
" lch 'wo men were badly injured. ’Squire Bran
nan 11811 **“ shoulder broken, and the other man is
“njnred to suchan extent that his life is despaired of.
®* Clabaugh still keeps on baud those
stationery, periodicals, dailyandweekly
notions in profusion.
Meanness.—Meanness shows itself oftenest in
little things, in.scant measure, light weight, sasng
half-cents in making change, requesting a mer
chant to take a few cents short to save changing a
bill, in being last at work and first at dinner, in
watching the clock or the sun at the close of a
day’s work, and'in similar tniles. Like drops of
water, they are felt, and in time will wear out the
endurance of the best customer and the patience
; of the most indulgent employer. .
Wkitwo.—Why do sonic folks write such a
miserable scroll that nobody can read it ? If yon
ask them, they will say the fault is in the pen. —
Now, reader, if that is your “fix” try one of Bar
nard’s carrugated pens. They are “a new thing,”/
and arc so constructed that you may pick your
teeth, play “ mumleypeg,” or dp what you will
with themi and still they will write. Fettingcr’s
Oak Hall is the only place to get 'em.
Accident. —We have just learned that Mrs."
Frew of Woodberry Township, Blair county, while
crossing the canal below the three mile dam, was
thrown from the board walk; and falling headlong
into the lock was injured so badly that her life is
despaired of. Her injuries are about the head, and
it is feared her skull is fractured.— Register.
Cobser-Stose Latino. —As noticed in a for
mer issue of our paper, the corner-stone of the new
German Lutheran Church, in the East Ward, will
be laid on Sunday, the 29th instant, at 2 o'clock
P. M. There will be preaching in English and
German at 10 A. M. and at 2P. M. The public
arc respectfully invited to attend.
Mill Burned. —The flooring mill of tbe Messrs.
Hawn, in the neighborhood of McConnellstown,
was totally destroyed by fire on Wednesday night
lost, together with a large quantity of grain. The
origin of the fire is unknown. We : have not
teamed to what amount the building was insured,
if any, —Huntingdon Journal American.
Delicious —Those fine large red strawberries
brought to our office, this mprning, by Mr. Sam
uel McGlathery, of Logan township. Printers
are just tbe chaps who know how to appreciate
such a treat. Who will.be the next customer?
Pic-Nic. — A pic-nic for the benefit of the Ger
man .Lutheran Church will take place in Beales’
Woods, on the 4th of July. The time is drawing
near,,and all who wish to be “in the ring” wonld
do well to seenre tickets immediately.
Not Hard to Take.—That mead manufactured
by Andy Clabaugh, and for. sale at his store in
“Brant Bow.” In fact it is about the best drink
of the kind we have yet come across. Call for a

Charles D. Murray, Esq., editor of the

He was about 30 years old..

To tuk Public ! — An experience of six months
has fully convinced me that the cash system. is
the best, both for merchant and consumer. It ena
bles the merchant to sell at one-half'less profit
and make more clear money, with less trouble than
he con by selling on credit; and the reason is ob
vious—he gets the money down for everything he
wants to.sell, and has the use of it immediately.—
The consumer also saves by buying for. cash, be
cause he gets his merchandise at from 25 to 50 per
cent, below what he would have to pay if he bought
on credit, or even if he bought at a store which
sells on credit. The credit business always loses a
certain per centage, which must he made up from
cash or prompt ihontbly payers.
I am determined to do nothing but a CASH
BUSINESS, and have but ONE PRICE for my
