THE HUNTINGDON GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, &C.

The County Superintendency.
On the 4th day of May, the School Direct
ors of Huntingdon county will assemble in
this place to elect a County Superintendent
for the ensuing term of three years. We
earnestly hope that these gentlemen, to whom
has been confided the supervision and care of
the schools of their respective districts, will
come to the discharge of their duties with an
ardent zeal, and firm resolve, to do the very
best they can for their constituency. The
official posts in our government will, at a day
not far in the future, be intrusted to the gen
eration now acquiring the rudiments of our
language. In the education, intellectual and
moral, of the uprising youth of the country,
then, we have, or should have, a deep and
abiding interest ; that interest should incite
us to the adoption of every plan and measure
which may better and advance the condition
of our well-devised system—and to the selec
tion, for its working positions, men of the
very highest order and qualifications. Teach
ers should be well skilled in all the various
branches of their profession, but it is neces
sary that the recipient of the honors of the
Superintendency, who is in fact, the head of
the Co ' on school organization of the coun
ty, s•I ld embody and possess, in an eminent
• greee, all the requisites of a good teacher.
Then for the credit of Huntingdon county,
which will acknowledge no superior in the in
telligence of its citizens, or in the interest
felt for general education, it is to be expected
that the Convention of Directors will rise
high above any local, personal or other preju
dice, and be governed in their selection of an
officer by high motives to advance the general
good. OLD HUNTINGDON.
LETTER FROM OMAHA, N. T.
OMAHA CITY, N. T., April 13, 1857.
Steamboat Arrivals—Missouri ricer "on a
high"—Capitol of Y. T.—Ontalta, Sara
toga and Florence—" Sulphur Spring"—
Claim Clubs—Claim Jumpers—Land office
at Omaha open to preemptors.
Mr. EDITOR.—In my last I promised my
next should be from Omaha. I now proceed
to make good that promise. I arrived here
about four weeks since, and during the inter
val have endeavored to " post" myself ccn
corning the current events here. Since my
arrival we have had several steam boats from
"below." As I write the steamer "Silver
Heels" is discharging her passengers and
freight at the landing. The clerk of the 'Sil
ver Heels" reports three hundred passengers
from this place. The Missouri River is unu
sually high—the knowing ones here predict
that in consequence of the large quantity of
snow "up north" the "Big Muddy" will be
higher during the present rise than it has
been for many years. The Capitol building
at this place is far advanced towards comple
tion—the brick work of the third and last
story is about complete, and about twelve
thousand dollars worth of ornamental iron
castings for the columns &e. are on the ground.
Unfortunately the appropriation for its com
pletion was defeated in last Congress, in con
sequence of the negligence, cupidity or igno
rance of the delegate from this Territory.—
This however will not, we presume, retard
the finishing of the building, as the " Sover
eigns" here have determined to complete it
and trust to future congresses to refund the
Omaha, Saratoga and Florence, dubbed
the " Trio City," are situated upon a beauti
ful plateau six miles long, extending from the
southern limit of Omaha to the northern boun
dary of Florence..:-Omaha was incorporated
last winter, and the " City Fathers" are ta
king active measures to improve the city.—
A first class hotel to cost seventy-five thous
and dollars is now under contract, the build
er of which is to receive a bonus of twenty
thousand dollars from the city. Omaha has
a population of about two thousand ; the peo
ple here claim twenty-five hundred, but this,
I think, is a little too high. Florence has
about eight hundred inhabitants. Saratoga
(situated between Omaha and Florence) was .
but recently laid out. It belongs to the "Sul
phur Spring Land Company." This Com
pany has about three thousand acres of land
and. a large cash capital, and has taken meas
ures to have two hotels erected in Saratoga.
The " Trinity House," costing twelve thous
and dollars is to be completed by the Ist of
June next. The " Saratoga Hotel," is to be
a first class house, to cost from fifty to seventy
five thousand dollars, and to be completed by
the Ist of January, 1858. The plans and .
specifications of the latter house are now here.
They were gotten up in the city of Baltimore
at a cost of three hundred dollars. There is
a beautiful Sulphur spring upon the town
site of Saratoga (hence its name) which is
certainly stronly impregnated with mineral,
and said to possess valuable medicinal quali
ties. " Claim Clubs" are now organized
throughout all the river counties of the Ter
ritory, designed to protect claimants in three.
hundred and twenty acres: There has been
considerable trouble in this vicinity caused
by "jumpers." By the term " jumpers" is
meant any person who " squats" on a "claim"
already taken, and attempts to hold it under
the pre-emption laws of the United States.—
The "Regulators" were called out a short
time since and proceeded to several claims
which were "jumped," brought the " jump
ers" to this place, and after an " impartial"
trial it was decided that they be sent over the
Missouri River. They were accordingly es
corted to the. shores of lowa and politely re
,quested.not to return' to the Territory under
pain of It more severe penalty—that is, put
under instead of over the Missouri. The Uni
ted States Land Office is now open to pre
emptors, and many legitimate claimants are
proving up on one half of their claims 160
acres, and hold the other half under the
" Claim Club laws," to be entered when the
land comes into market. Claims within one
to five miles of this place are selling at from
one hundred to ten thousand dollars. As
some things herein narrated may seem a lit
tle wild and speculative to those unaccustomed
to western life, I would say in self defence, I
have from the best data accessible endeavored
to approximate the truth as nearly as possi

and City of Washington at this port yester
day morning, respectively from Southampton
and Liverpool on the Bth inst. They brought
seven hundred and thirty-eight passengers,
and the Fulton landed $140,000 in specie.—
A good deal of anxiety was expressed in
England to know the exact nature of the
amendments made by the Senate to the Dal
las Clarendon treaty. The document reach
ed Liverpool on the 6th., and speculation
was already rife as to its merits and tenden
cy. Up to the latest accounts 365 support

had been returned to the new Parliament,
giving thus far a majority of 116 in favor of
Lord Palmerston's administration.

English government had ordered the fitting
out, with extraordinary despatch, of an ex

for the Chinese waters. Gen. Ashburnham

An opinion prevailed that the five ports of

settled some of the points in dispute between

A NEGRO BABY IN A MOLASSES BARREL.—
The Wheeling (Va.) Times says a short time
since, a man who keeps a grocery in the vi
cinity of Fairview, Va., some distance out on
the National Road west, came to Wheeling
and bought a barrel of molasses. He took it
home and commenced retailing it in. small
quantities to his customers, all of whom were
attacked with a strange sort of sickness, from
which, however, they speedily recovered.—
No one could account for this singular fact
until the molasses barrel was pretty well drain
ed and the head knocked out of it, when the
whole community was astonished at the dis
covery of a negro child, about eight days old,
inside the barrel. The child was lying in the
bottom of the barrel in a state of partial pu

DISFRANCHISING WHITE MEN.—The Bos
ton, Traveller thus chuckles over the prospect
of disfranchising some white men in Massa
chusetts for "the crime" of being unable to
read and write :
The Democratic Committee of Suffolk
county, are very ardent in their denunciation
of the proposed reading and writing amend
ment to the Constitution. Their warmth is
the warmth of interest. Their party would
probably loose half its meagre number of
voters in this county, should the amendment
be adopted—as it will be.
BAYARD TAYLOR'S TRAVELS.—The Cologne
Gazette states that Bayard Taylor returned
to Stockholm from. his winter tour in Lapland
about the middle of February. The most
northern point reached,.by in him and his com
panions was Kautokrino,Finmark, 69 de
grees north latitude. They travelled in Lap
land costume on sleds drawn by reindeer,
and were objects of great interest with the
natives, as Taylor was the first American
man in those parts.
SOME SNAKES.—WhiIe several negroes be
lowing to Dr. Silby were engaged in clear
ing up an old field, situated in the upper por
tion of Liberty county, Mo., they killed on
about four acres of the field, twenty-one rat
tle snakes and one moccasin snake! Some
of the rattle snakes mentioned were of large
size. This story is vouched for as true.
Er Eggs, which are now so abundant,
can, it is said, be better preserved in corn meal,
than in any other preparation yet known.—
Lay them with the small end down, and if
undisturbed, will be as good at the end of a

bances have ocurred between the white settlers
on Salt Creek, Nebraska, and the Pawnee

REWAED.—Left my board, (at which ho has 'let with
an air of self-importance, until his accounts amount to
seventy-five dollars,) on Sunday, the Bth of February; be
tween the setting and rising of the sun, a certain animal
in human shape, WhO calls himself MOSES NICKOLES. (he
probably will assume another name,) described as followks
Said Niclwles had on, when he left, a black cloth cap,
black coat and pants, none of which were much the worse
of wear, and were not paid for, black straight hair, thiti
black whiskers, (if he has not shaved them off,) deep black
eyes, black heart, and not in the right place, consequently;
stout built, weighs about ISOlbs., and is about2.s years old-
This notice is not intended to have the scamp apprehen
ded, but to caution the public, and especially my brother
Tradesmen, against the imposter.
And to add insult to injury, I have every reason to In) ,
love that the said Nickoles, influenced and decoyed fronr
my employ, a young Irish boot maker, who also left in
debted to me some sixty dollars. Said Nickoles left sun ,
dry other bills unsettled, among which is one of $S or $lO,
duo a poor negro woman for washing, which, of itself,ist
sufficient to brand the villian with infamy: He attached
himself to the Church, to enable him more fully to mac- .
the his rascality upon the people hero. He is a shoe ma
ker by trade, and works on women's work: So I bid you
all beware of the black-hearted villian.
