Tub Fourth is Ai.toosa.-jVs intimated in
our last issue, there was no. general demonstration
ill this place on the Fourth, and the town, between
the hours of 10 A. M. and it I'. M., wore a Snn
ilav appearance. Nearly every place of business
inis dosed, and all who felt like enjoying them
selves in the country, attended some one of the
pic-nics in the surrounding groves.
The only ceremonies which partook of a general
character were those got up by the proprietor of
Oak Hall, the programme of which we published
last week. rVt the apjjointol time, (i A. St.-, Mr.
Bohjer's String Band performed an overture, after
which the stars and stripes were flung to the breeze
l.v Master Harry Woods, dressed in the costume
uf "Young America,” while the String Band and
a company of vocalists performed the “ Star Span
gfcil Banner.” After the crowd had saluted the
tlag with three hearty cheers, S. M. Woodkok,
Esq., stepped upon the platform and read the Dec
laration of Independence in a clear and distinct
voice, the band and vocalists following it with a
national air. D. J. Neff. Esq., was then called
for and responded in a short address, replete with
)<uriotism and eloquence, and paying a merited tri
bute of respect to the memory of the hcroes who
have given their lives for their country in the
present struggle. His remarks were well re
ceived by the audience, as was evidenced by their
frequent hursts of applause, anil three cheers when
he concluded. jVnothcr National air was then
performed by the musicians, concluding the cere
monies at about 7 o’clock. jVltogether, we con
sidered this enterprise of the proprietor of Oak
Hall an exceedingly appropriate aijd happy manner
in which to usher in the Nation’s birth-day, and none
pa-sent, we think, regretted having left their couches
so early to be in attendance. After the ceremo
nies. the speaker of the morning, reader of the
Declaration, musicians, and a few invited guests,
jiartook of an excellent breakfast served up by
Messrs. Woods & McClain at the jVltoona House,
This part of the programme was exceedingly ac
ceptable, and all did ample justice to the,good
things spread before them. This concluded, with
many thanks to the proprietor of Oak Hall, the
company dispersed to'spend the balance of the day them seemeff best.
A number of persons residing in the immediate
vicinity of Julia and Relwcca streets displayed
their patriotism and good taste by erecting, on the
corner of the streets named, one of the prettiest
iriumphal arches which we have ever seen in a
country town. Four arches were sprung from cor
ner to comer, across each street, and two across
the centre.. These were covered with evergreen
and fancy wreaths, and a number of flags and
lianners. The likenesses of Gens. Scott, McClel
lan and other military heroes of the day, were sus
pended from the arches, handsomely encircled with
wreaths. In the evening the affair was brilliantly
illuminated, and was much admired by all -who
wimessed it.
To speak particularly of any of the picnics
seems almost invidious. We could not attend all
rf them, to witness the mirth and pleasure of the
participants, but from the accounts we have re
ceived wc. believe that all passed of well, with one
The members and Sunday School scholars of
St. John’s Catholic Church met at the Church
in the morning and marched out to M’Cartney’s
"pods, preceded by a martial band, and spent the
day very pleasantly—a great abundance of good
things and various sources of amusement having
been provided.
The German Lutheran picnic in Beales’ Woods,
was well attended. The refreshments and accom
modations were excellent, and good • order was
maintained throughout the entire day. All who
participated in this picnic speak of it in the high
est terms of pfaise. The crowd upon the ground
at one time was estimated at near 1000 persons.
The Social Club was exactly what its name in
dicates— a club of social, jovial, accommodating
jadics and gentlemen into whose hands it is a
I'? thing to fall when you have an appetite for
a . dinner or good times generally. Their
1 uief desire seemed to be to enjoy themselves and
'.aiise t * le,r guests to do the same. Thev deserve
their name—social.
The Select Club held their annual pic-hic in

Farewell Meeting. —On Itlonday evening
next, a farewell missionary meeting will be held
in the Methodist Church, in this place, preparatory
to the departure of Rev. Henry Mansel, of the
Pittsburgh Canference, as a missionary to India.
Mr. Mansel lias been in this place, for several
weeks past, making preparations for the voyage,
across the ocean, which will occupy four or five
months. He will sail from New York about the
first of August.
It is expected that Dr. Durbin, of New York.
Secretary of the Missionary Society of the M. E.
Church, will be. present and deliver an address;—
Addresses will also be delivered by Kev. C. D.
Chcnowitb. P. E. of the District; Kev. H. Mansel,
Rev. W. Lee Spotswdod, and others. The minis
ters and laity of udjoiniug circuits aud stations,
and the public generally, are invited to attend.—
No collection.
0“J. H. Moore is an enterprising character. —
By energy and perseverance he has established a
profitable business, and is now well known by the
mercantile portion of this and several adjoining
counties. From jieddling matches he has risen to
an extensive wholesale dealer in notions and small
wares. Formerly he traded with a single wagon,
How he keeps two going-all the time, and is about
to add n third. He manufactures two qualities
of steel pens, one qf which, the Falcon Pen, we
consider equal to any we ever placed on paper.—
There is now a great competition among the mas*
ufacturers of this article, because of the great
number used, and there arc so many good' brands,
ns well os bad ones, that if is wrong to say one is
better than another, nevertheless, wc can say that
Moore’s Falcon Pen Is equal to any.
Another. —On Tuesday evening we were the
recipients of a truly patriotic boquet, accompanied
by the following patriotic note: —
“Will the Tribune editors please accept this bo
quet of National colors, from a friend at ‘ Ingle
side ?’ May beauty and loyalty ever combine thus
The boquet was composed of red, white and blue
flowers, tastefully arranged in the order named.—
We accept the gift most gratefully, and prize it
the more because of the patriotic sentiments ac
companying it. Would that there was os much
patriotism in the heart of every lady in the land as
there is in that of our friend at “Ingleaide.”
Patriotic. —The “Model Conductor” of the
“ Great Southern Train” spread his patriotism be
fore the gaze of an admiring and sympathetic con
course of his fellow countrymen and ladies, on the
morning of the Fourth, by embellishing the Cars of
his train with sundry evergreen and fancy wreaths,
gracefully drajicd and appropriately arranged
around the eves, the \vhole surmounted with an
avalanche of miniature emblems of our glorious
national ensign. “ Long may they wave” (that
is Jim and the old F’lag.)
On His Own Hook.—Our young friend, James
S. Mann, as will be seen by referring to another
column, has gone into business on his own hook,
or rather in partnership, but lie attends to the
business himself. His stock of goods are equal to
any ever brought to the town, and the gentleman
or lady who cannot find something on his shelves
to please them, must he indeed fastidious. Re
member the place, and if you want anything for
the head or feet, give him a call.
C.u-T. Crozier. —We are glad to learn from
the correspondence of the Senior editor of
ister, who is at Washington, tliat Capt. R. J. Cro
zier, of this place, is now at the Douglas hospital
in that city. He says • the Captain is not dangers
ously wounded and expects to be able to come
home early next week. According to the Captain’s
account 14 of his men are wounded and missiqg.
but he is uncertain as to the fate of them.
Tiuhote or Respect.— -At a stated meeting of
Altoona Lodge, No. 473, held July 4th, the fol
lowing preamble and resolutions were adopted:
Whereas, By a dispensation of an all-wise
Providence, we are called upon to mourn the loss
of our much esteemed brother, George W. Burley.
Resolved, That in the death of brother George
W. Burley, our Lodge has lost a useful and con
sistent member, and the communitiy a useful citi
zcii, and the country a valiant soldier.
Resolved, That we deeply sympathize with the
sorrow-stricken parents and friends of our deceased
brother iu this the time of their deep affliction, and
trust that He, who iri his wisdom has seen fit to
afflict them, will sanctify their affliction and sus
tain them by His grace.
Resolved, That our Lodge room be draped iu
mourning, and the members wear the usual badge
of mourning for thirty' days.
Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be
furnished the family of our deceased brother, and
that thev be published in the “Altoona Tribune.”
Pittsburgh Female College.
We copy the following notice of this excellent
institution from the Pittsburgh Gazette of the 3rd
The Seventh /Annual Catalogue of the Pitts
burgh Female College has just been laid upon
our table by the President, Rev. I. C. Pershing.
We confess that we have examined its contents
with a degree of satisfaction amounting almost to
pride, as we have marked the fact that we have in onr
midst one of the most Vigorous, well managed and
successful institutions in the land. Wc question
much whether one in ten, even of our own citi
zens, has any real conception of the status the col
lege has reached, or the grand and glorious work
it accomplishing. The recent commence
ment, at which nineteen young ladies received
their degrees, gave evidence not only of woman’s
capabilities, but also of the superior facilities af
forded by the college for their development. The
'entire commencement was a brilliant success and
reflected the highest honor on all concerned.
As an evidence of the prosperity of the college
we need but state the fact that the attendance the
past year reached the large number of two hundred
and forty-eight, gathered from nine States. In
order to accommodate the constantly increasing
number of pupils, an addition has been made to
the Faculty, which how numbers fifteen. Most of
the old teachers remain. Among the new ones
are Miss Martha C. Dole, a lady of large experi
ence, and for some time a teacher in the celebrated
school at Mount Holyoke, Massachusetts; and
Miss Fannie A. Fish, who has earned such an en
viable reputation in our community. The utmost
care is taken in the selection of teachers, and the
present Faculty will compare favorably with any
in the country.
We aro pleased to learn from President Persh
ing that an effort is now making to put up an ad
dition to the building. The design is to add 40
feet to the Chapel, divide the second story into a
Library and Heading-room, and also a Hall for
the Browning Association, and devote the etilire
third story to the porpoises of an Art Gallery and.
Cabinet. The design is a noble one, and we trust
it will Ire carried out.
The next terra will commence on Tuesday, Sep
tember 2d. We need hardly urge upon onr read
ers to patronize the College. .If fine buildings,
thorough equipment, a vety large and able Fac
ulty, and earnest devotion to the work of Chris
tian education, can give claims to' patronage, then
has the college claims which qre second to none.
We advise onr readers to send for a catalogue,

Miss Mary E. Laub will please accept the
thanks of the Junior for that boquct left upon his
table a few evenings since. Knowing how much
printers appreciate the lieantful in natnre and art,
(and what competent judges they are,) our friends
seem determined to vie with each other iu con
tributing to our happiness.
To thk Public !—An experience of six months
lias 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 pbofit
and make more clear money, with less trouble than
he can 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 lie would have tp pay if helmught
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 fie made up from
cash or prompt monthly payers.
I am determined to do nothing but a CASH
BUSINESS, and have but ONE PRICE for my
I have just returned from the cities of Now York

cents. Sugars at 9, 10, 11 and HJ cents per lb.

ha. G. H. Ktrsot : T I taka pleasure in making this yul
notary itatement in Ihvor of a medicine prepared by you
called “ LiimsßT's Bioon Searcher” I had suffered for
five years with Scrofula which broke out on my head and
forehead so as to disfigure me very much, aod took off the
hair when the disease made it? appearance; it also broke out
on my arm above and below the elbow, and eat Into tin*
skin and flesh so as to expose a fearful sore. The disease
on my head went so far that several small pieces of bone
came out. 1 was very week and low spirited, and had
given up all hope of ever getting well, os I had tried sev
eral skillful physicians and they did me no good. In Sep
tember last, 1861,1 was induced to try “ Litoskt’s In
proved Blood Searcher.” I must confess I had no fcitU
in patent medicines, but after I had need three bottles of
Blood Searcher, the ulcers on my head and arm began to
heal.' I have now taken eight or ten bottles, and my head
and arm are entirely well except the scan remaining from
the sores. I will also state that 1 had the rheuteatism
very bad in my arms and legs. The Blood Searcher also
cured the rheumatisml lam now a well man, over forty
yean of age, and I fee) as suple and young as I did when
I was twenty, and have increased in weight twenty pounds.
I would also state that the disease in my foreheard was so
bad that when I stooped and lifted anything' heavy, the
blood run out of the sore. Dr. Keyser had a photograph
takeu oi me by Mr. Cargo, the artist, after I began to get
well. It does not show my appearance as bad os it was
before I commenced taking the medicine. You can see
the photograph, one of which is now in my possession
and iVIBO at Dr. Keyset's 140 Wood street. 1 would also
state that I took the Blood Searcher which was made be
fore Dr. Keyeer commenced making it. Although it
helped me some; X did not recover fast until I got the kind
made by Dr. Keyset himself One bottle of his did me
more good than two of the old. I believe it is a great deal
stronger and better. I bare recommended the Blood
Searcher to a great many of my friends for various dis
eases, and I believe it has helped the whole of them. Yon
may publish this if yon wish, and I am anxious that all
who are afflicted as I was may be cored. I live in this city,
No. 4 Pine street, and am employed at Collville t Ander
son’s Union Marble Works, 54 Wayne street. ,
I lire in Sligo, at Clinton Mill, and have been nearly
blind in both eyes for neatly four years, t called on Dr.
Keyser about three months ago and asked him to give mu
directions to the Institution for the Blind in Philadelphia.
Ee told ins that I need not go to Philadelphia to get well,
as he bad medicine that would cure me, as he said my dis
ease was in the blood. I was treated for it two or three
times in the hospital in this city, and was relieved, but
my disease always returned after a month or two alter I
came out of the hospital. 1 found'my disease was re*
turning and I called, by the advice of a good friend of
mine, on Dr. Keyser, who has restored 1 my sight, and my
eyes are nearly as well as ever. The Doctor gave me
* Lindsey’s Blood Searcher” and a wash.

PrtETßuasH, September 18,1861.—1 hereby certify that
I have bad a sore leg for over a year. It was covered
with ulcers and sores so that I could not work for nearly
a year. My leg swelled so that 1 was unable to do any
thing for a long time, for at least six months. I tried
several of the beat doctors in the city, but without any
benefit; finally I called on Dr. Keyser, at No. 140 Wood
street, who only attended me about two weeks, and gave
mo but two bottles of medicine, and 1 am now entirely
well and have contincd so tor six months. lam employed
at the Eagle Engine House, on Fourth street, where any

A Lma Flow Enouitn.—Mr. John Pope, of Blaenu
von, near Montypool, Monmontshire, England, writes aa
Sin:—An old woman iu this place has .wished me to
writs you respecting Likbsit’s Blood a»»»<-w»n, from
which she found great benefit, and wishes to have a little
more. She has been suffering from a disease of a cancer,
ous nature for the last six or seven years. Her daughter,
who is living in America, obtained it for her, and sent her
eighteen bottles, She is now quite out of it, and I have
written to her daughter twice and have received no an
swer; of coarse she is anxious to get more, to get com.
pletely cured. I told her I would write to you for the
agency in this country, and she felt very much pleased to
bear me say so. I now beg to ask you on what terms you
will supply me; you will please bear in mind the car
riage, and supply me as cheap as possible. The carriage
on the one dozen bottles was £1 8a 6d. The medicine was
a present from her daughter. I would like to have the
Blood Searcher in a jar or small cask, if you can send it
in tliat way, or in pint or quart bottles. I will send a bill
through bank or registered letter, which ever will be most
convenient to you, if you will send me carrier’s receipt of
the parcel as security. I would send you a stamp to an
ewer this, but as it is uncertain of this reaching ydu, on
account of the country being ip six and sevens, a term
w blcl> is commonly used, yon will be kind enough to
charge me with the jmstage.
