A Quarter of a Century Shut Out From
The Pottsville Standard of the 21st ult,
has the following;
Manyfears ago there lived in Pbila
delphiaawo brothers named Harper, who
were engaged in business together, and
were successful merchants. They lived
in luxury, and seemed in the enjoyment
of all the blessings of life. One of them
finally concluded to go to Europe for a
year, partly on business, but as fully as
much for pleasure, and elaborate prepa
rations were made for the trip, which was
in those days quite an undertaking. At
last &11 was ready, and Mr. Harper took
passage for London, where he arrived
safely In good time. He visited the vari
ous countries of Europe, and prolonged
his stay to two years, occasionally hear
ing from home and gaining assurance
that all was well there. At last letters
ceased coming, and Mr, Harper, Rearing
something was wrftng, took passage for
Philadelphia, where he arrived to find
Lis brother dead, and himself a ruined
man. The brother that had remained to
care for business had fallen into the
habit, during his brother’s absence, of
visiting gaming houses, where he had ac
quired a love of gambling, and this led to
bis ruin. After losing all they both pos
sessed, the brother shot himself in a fit of
desperation, and bad been buried some
lime when the subject of our sketch re
turned from Europe. His sister, the only
relative besides the brother in this coun
try, bad died of grief, and he was left
alone. Covered with chagrin at the un
happy turn in his worldly affairs, and
Stowed with grief at the disgrace that bad
been brought upon bis name by bis
brother's conduct, he determined to quit
the home of his youth for some spot
of mao could not
He accordingly found hia way
jaf lhe northeastern part of the county, in
West Penn township, bordering on Berks,
where he lived the life of a hermit.
Bis little hat was rudely built by his
own hands, tinder the shelter of a huge
rock and there be dwelt in silent seclu
sion upon his misfortunes, and held no
converse with the real of mankind. How
be lived or what he lived on no one knew,
bat the old residents of that part well re
member the queer man, who “dwelt with
■solitude and walked the rocks and forests
like a wolf,” and his coming and going
was watched with interest by all who
knew the story of his strange manner and
still stranger life. At last all traces of the
hermit was lost. Ho one saw him any
more, the people believing him dead,
visited the cabin, expecting to find it the
grave of the dead stranger. But h# was
not there. Neither was his body any
where to be found, and no traces of the
strange man’s whereabouts could be ascer-
after his disappearance in West
Penn, a queer old man with bent form
and wrinkled visage appeared in Ring
town at regular intervals and purchased
some few necessaries of life, and then de
parted without a word to any one. His
movements were so strange that he was
followed, and his path led top little rode
hot in the gorge of the mountains, bor
dering on Columbia county, where be
lived alone. This was the hermit of West
Penn. He had left the former place to
make his seclusion more certain, and had
sought this wilder and more rugged place
to remain during the balance of his life.
■ A short time ago he wandered over in
to Columbia county, evidently on the
verge of starvation, and died there, at the
ripe age of nearly three score and ten
years, nearly one-half of which had been
spent in the silent solitude of the moun
tains, without a companion, save such as
Nature created about him each changing
season. The story of bis strange and
lonely life, as given above, was briefly
told us in his last moments, and the old
man came near passing away without
leaving behind a trace of intelligence of a
life of bitterness and solitary seclusion
such as has rarely been known in the
history of our race. It is believed that
the terrible cold of this winter drove the
old man from his desolate home to the
shelter ot that cizilizalion that bo had
shunned for years, and among the - scenes
of a happy country home in the glooming
of a winter's eve his hermitage cessed,
and be passed away from the goodly
scenes of an earthly existence that had
been to him of a most unfortunate charac*
BATABD TAYLOB AND HORACE
Bayard Taylor, in some reminiscences
of Horace Greeley, written from Gotha,
Germany, says: I first saw Mr. Greeley
in Jane, 1844, when I was a boy of nine*
teen. I applied to him for an engage
ment to write letters to The Tribune from
Germany. His reply was terse enough.
“Nodescriptive letters!”he said; “I am
siok of them. When you have been there
long enough to know something, send to
me, and, if there is anything in your let
ters, I will publish them.” I waited
nearly a year, and then sent seventeen
letters which were published. They were
shallow enough I suspect; but what
might they not have been without his
Towards the end of 1847, while I was
engaged in the unfortunate enterprise of
trying to establish a weekly paper in
Pboenixville, Penn,. I wrote to him—for
seeing the failure.of my hopes—asking his
assistance in procuring literary work in
New York. He advised me (as X suspect
be has advised thousands of young men,)
to stay in the country. But I had stayed
in the country, and a year too long; so
another month found me in New York,
In his office, with my story of disappoint*
ment,and my repeated request for his
favorable influence. "I think you are
mistaken,” he said; “but ! will bear you
iu mind, if I hear of any chance.”
Six weeks afterwards, to my great sur
prise (for I supposed be bad quite forgot
ten me,) he sent for me and offered me a
place on The Tribune. I worked bard and
incessantly during the summer of 1848,
hearing never a word of commendation or
enconragment; but one day in October
he suddenly came to my desk, and said :
“Ton have been faithful; but now yon
need rest. Take a week's holiday, and go
into New England.” I obeyed, and
found, on my return, that he had ordered
my salary to be increased.
I think none of hia associates, at that
lime, ever wrote a line which he did not
critically read. His comments sometimes
seemed rough but they were always whole
some and almost Invariably just. Once
he called me into his room, pointed to a
poem of mine which had just appeared in
literary magazine, and abruptly, asked :
“Why did you publish that gassy stuff?”
My indignation was even greater than
my astonishment 1 retorted fiercely:
“Mr. Greeley. I should feel hurt by your
question, if I bad any respect whatever
for your judgment in regard to poetry 1”
He smiled a sad forgiving smile and said
nothing. Years afterwards I saw that be
was right; the poem was only a pelce of
sounding rhetoric, for which “gassy” was
perhaps a coarse but certainly not an In
appropriate epithet In that as in other
respects, the discipline to which he sub
jected me, was excellent; if not the result
of his intellectual perception, it manifest
ed an Instinct even more remarkable.
Two pictures, equally illustrative of the
man, remain with me from that first year.
On an afternoon In the little editorial of
fice under the roof, Mr. Greeley bending
over the yellow transfer paper on which
the telegraphic dispatches were written.
The light from the window fell upon the
lop of his bald head, which presented its
fall circumference to me as he leaned
down. I was looking at it, vacactly,
when I saw a fiery scarlet flush rise from
his neck and temples like a wave and
flood the white crown. The next mo
ment he rose, threw hack his bead, and
ottered a fearful shriek. For a minute,
nearly, I thought him mad. He Sung his
hands op and down, and cried: “It has
come!” and laughed in a half-delirious
ecstacy. It was the news of the passage of
the Wiimot Proviso.
Another day, his little son Arthur,
whose exquisite features, blue eyes, and
golden hair remains in my memory as a
more angelic apparition than any cherub
face which Raphael ever, painted, came
into the office to meet hia «»»«*«
«juumof. vraen he saw the hoy
he gave a similar shriek, caught him un
der the arms, tossed him aloft, and finally
clasped him to bis breast with a worldless
outcry of passionate love and joy, so in
tense that I almost shuddered to bear it.
I felt then that I had caught one of the
clues to a correct understanding of his
nature; that he was dowered with love of
love, which, in this reticent world, feels
itself to be something akin to weakness,
and often feigns its opposite in order to
make its presence. He did not see, nor
do the most so dowered see, that it equal
ly belongs to the strength of strength.
The Aim la Advertising.
It was the remark of a very eminent
Bostonian that he regarded an advertise
ment in a paper as a personal invitation
extended to him to call, and he added,
“while I sometimes hesitate about enter
ing a store the proprietors of which have
not thns sent their card to my residence,
1 always feel certain of a cordial welcome
from the members of an advertising firm. ”
There is in this remark an assurance of
one of the many results of advertising.
The trader and bis calling becomes Iden
tified, and the name of a man is insepara
bly connected in the mind of the public
with bis merchandise. It may not be the
very day ah Advertisement appears that it
bears its fruit; weeks or months may
elaspe, and then when the want arises
the article to be obtained immediately
suggests the advertiser. This is the effect
of general advertising when persistently
followed. A special class of advertising,
where some novelty is announced, is more
immediate. A shrewd business man once
advertised a trifling article in a manner
which would scarce prove remunerative.
His neighbors- expressed their regret at
his folly, but he appeared contended.
Thongh his gross sales of the article,, did
not cover the cost of his advertising, he
attracted a new class of people to his
store, and his shrewdness paid him in a
very short time, for new eyes saw what
he had to offer in addition to the special
ty advertised, and fresh parses came under
contribution to him.
The object which all aim to accomplish
in advertising is an increase of business.
The nimble shilling Is what we require in
this age. It costs very little more in the
way of expense to carry on a business of
two hundred thousand dollars than it re
quires to do half that amount. The cost of
rent, personal living, and many incidental
expenses, do not increase in the ratio of
business, while time Is saved; for there is
greater profit resulting from a trade of
two hundred thousand in one year than
from the same amount, and even more,
extended over twice the space of time.
These simple facts are well known by en
ergetic business men, who adopt adver
tising as the most powerful method of
saving time, by increasing business and

One of tbe most fiendish and unpar
donable outrages we were ever called to
record, was perpetrated about a mile be
low Mercer, on Wednesday afternoon of
last week, by a vllliau calling himself
Jim Hanna. He had previously been
employed by John Carter as a hack driv
er, and in company with another driven
named Jack Zillafo, went in the direction
named, ostensibly to hunt rabbits, bring
ing up at the house of . Miss Eleanore
Mathews, a maiden lady, over seventy
six years of age, who lives by herself, a
short distance from the residence of H. M.
Magoffin. Hanna callled for a cup to get
a drink from a spring near by. Return-
Ing with tbe cup, he entered.. the bouse,>
closed , the door behind him, and drawing
a large knife, told the old lady that he
wanted the balance of that gold—she hav
ing been robbed of a small amount a few
weeks since, while absent from home.
She told him she had none, when he
threw her on the floor, brandished the
knife over her and threatened to kill her
if she did not tell him where it was. She
stiH insisted that she had no money—that
it bad all been taken before. He then
threw aside his knife, and in a most brut
ish manner, ravished her person,
her in a prostrate and dangerous condition.
As soon as she had sufficiently recov
ered to do so, she communicated the facts
to the family of Mr. Eherly, living near
by, and on Friday complaint was made
against the two men, by Mr. Wm. Jun.
kin. Both were arrested on Monday—
Hanna in Sharon and Zillafo in this place.
They were lodged in jail, and on Tuesday
evening had. a preliminary hearing be
fore Justice Rodgers. There being no
evidence to criminate Zillafo, he was dis
charged. Hanna was committed to an
swer for the above heinous offences. His
case came up before the grand fury on
Wednesday evening, and two indictments
were fonnd against him, one for “attcmp*•
ed burglary” and one for “rape.” He will
probably be tried on the first indictment
at this session, and on the other at the
regular oyer and terminer.
There was a deep feeling of Indignation
on Tuesday and Wednesday, and it would
have required hut little agitation to have
organized lynch court, that would have
suspended the villain to the first tree
within reach. —Mercer Digpatch.
