Medicinally, for the removal or cure of disease
s undoubted for.bathing purposes it is un
excelled. The following analysis, made about
the year 1800, or perhaps before that year, by
an eminent medical man of the times, shows
its true character:

the Waters of the Warm Springs, near
Huntingdon, by T. D. Smith, M. D.
The temperature of these waters, found by
tveral fair trials on the spot with a good
thermometer, is 64 degrees. Their specific
gravity exactly that of pure rain water. The
taste is soft and smooth : but at first drinking
nothing can be discovered in it by an unpreju
diced person differing from that of other soft
water. Some short time after drinking the
saliva is secreted freely and a taste similar to
Tart. Emetic can very plainly be perceived.
They agree perfectly well with the weakest
stomach and after repeated drinking become
Their sensible operation is, they increase
perspiration, cause light gentle evacuations
by stool, and very copious evacuations by
urine—the latter even when taken in small
quantities. They promote appetite and even
restore it to those who have long labored un
der its loss.
The effects produced by mixing it with va
rious substances are. With marine and vit
riolic acids, white vitriol, corrosive sublimate,
alum and volatile alkali at first a light pearl
blue, which in about two hours grew three or
four shades deeper. With lunar caustic, a
thick muddy white, which by degrees, turned
black till it became entirely of that color.
We have, of late, been repeatedly request
ed to call the attention of parents, to the mis
conduct of their children on the streets, and
in other public places. But we must confess
a reluctance in saying a word upon the sub
ject, when it is so well known that many pa
rents laugh at and virtually encourage the
public blackguardisms of their children, who
have.and do almost daily, violate not only
every principle of moral decency and respect,
but the laws for the protection of life and
property. .• None are free from their insults
and outrages—citizens or strangers—old or
young—male or female. We have seen pa
rents stand in their doors, and - witness and
laugh at the outrages of their children, that
would or should bring the "burning blush of
shame," to the cheeks of any parent having
the least respect for him or herself, or in the
least solicitous for the proper training of their
children, and their future advancement and
respectability in life. But their outrages do
not stop with insults alone. Failing to be
noticed with these, they seem to have.adopted
a system of stoning both ladies and gentle
men. No matter how inoffensive, innocent,
and respectable the persons are, it is all the
same. Now, in the name of all that is good,
must these things be quietly, tamely submit
ted. to? If children receive no training, no
education at home, under the parental roof—
in the public school, the Sunday school, or
the Church—are they to be allowed to violate
the laws with impunity, and go unwhipt 'of
The complaints against these offences, are
like the occasions for them, becoming more
numerous every day; and both the offences
and complaints. seem to be as well known to
our public officers as anybody else—if they
are not, the officers are a dreadfully ignorant
set of men, and "know nothing." But if
they aro, then the officers are either grossly
negligent of their duty in the premises, or
base, paltry timeservers, and with a compla
cency truly astonishing to uninterested per
sons, compromise their oaths of office, and
the laws, through fear of offending ! By the
unanimous verdict of public opinion, one of
the two things is true !
It has come to this in the borough of Hun
tingdon, that the public authorities must, by
due course of law, teach the children of pro
fessed christian and enlightened parents,
what they are not taught at home, public
morals and public decency.
We think the hint thrown out in last week's
Journal, relative to the publication of the
names of young street blackguards, would
have a very salutary effect upon both parents
and:children. It would indicate where there
is a. lack of family government, discipline,
and moral training, and would probably be
the most effectual means of stopping the scan
dals of the children. 'Sias much for the pres

THE PRESS AND GOOD BUSINESS.—There is
no discount on this paragraph, if a coternpo
rary is correct in the assertion:
Some men advertise for a short time after
they commence business, and think that is
sufficient ; others intermit advertising after
they have established a flourishing business
by its aid. This , is . eke. From the
moment a house ceaset', E .advertise, however
large its reputation :-• Manding, it begins
to decline. The changA are so rapid in this
country, and the public mind is so constantly
occupied for new applicants to its favor and
its attention, that to be out of the papers,
where everybody seeks for information on ev
ery subject, is to be forgotten. The press is
daily more and more becoming a necessity,
and its usefulness as an advertising medium
is constantly increasing. No man is wise, or
just to himself, who undertakes to do busi
ness without availing himself of its ad.vanta-
But we consider it almost superfluous, to
argue the advantages of advertising. The
business men who do not advertise, need only
look at those wile do—those who started on
"little or nothing," and have risen to wealth
and affluence, and who still advertise. They
know by experience, the advantages to be
gained by it, and would as soon think of aban
doning their business, as to abandon the sys
tem of advertising. To business men in Hun
.we would recommend The Globe, as
the best medium—it having a circulation in
this town and surrounding vicinity, of about
three hundred copies, and supposing on an
average, that each copy is read by , five per
sons—a fair estimate—you have your adver
tisements read by fifteen hundred persons,
who reside near enough to make their daily
purchases from you! A hint to the wise is
HUNTINGDON COUNTY AGRICULTURAL So
=Tr.—By reference to our advertising col
umns, it will be seen that the President of
this Society has ordered a meeting to be
held in the Court House, on Friday the 12th
instant. In view of the expected abundant
harvests, it is contemplated to hold a Fair,
in the fall, as usual, since the organization
of the Society; and it is to be hoped that all
the officers, and as many of the members of
the Society as can, will respond heartily to
the call of the President, and attend this
first preliminary meeting. The desire to
have a Fair this season seems to be general,
and if Farmers and others - interested will
take that active interest in the affairs of the
Society they should, and begin in time to
prepare for the exhibition, we predict the
most successful one that has yet been held by
the Huntingdon county Agricultural Society.
Let all attend the meeting on the 12th inst.

The Hog Cholera.---A New Theory
Dr. Dougherty, of Paris, Ky., who has
lately dissected a hog that died of what is
termed "hog cholera," thus writes to another
" Upon examination, I found the brain, spi
nal marrow, lungs, liver, heart, stomach, the
large and part of the • small bowel without
disease. But that portion of the small bowel
next the stomach was literally filled with
worms to the extent of several feet and in a
high state of inflamation. The worm was
from two to five inches in length, resembling
in appearance the ascaris of the human sub
ject, but harder, more active, and apparently
more tenacious of life. So closely were they
crowded in the bowels that their form could
be distinctly traced through its coats.
"The disease, then, of which the hog dies,
is inflamation of a portion of the small bow
el, caused by this bard, active worm, and pro
ducing the symptoms noticed in its course,
viz :—drooping, indisposition to eat, d iarrhoea,
an d fin ally, convulsions and death. The treat
ment it seems to me must be altogether pre
ventive. Ido not believe the worms could
be dislodged by any treatment after inflama
tion is set up ; but before this, while the hog
is apparently well, able to eat and drink, I
have no doubt that they may be destroyed or
removed in many instances, by judicious man
The doctor thinks the disease "incommu
nicable," and the best remedy is some medi
cine to dislodge the worms in their course of
THE COMET.-A correspondent of the Con
nersville Times, thinking it not impossible
that the comet may be open to persuasion,
addresses it thus in a recent letter:
"What's he got against us? What have
we done that he should, directly or indirectly,
in his Wandering Jew style of perambulating,
on our premises, and frighten Mr. Buchan
an's people out of their senses? Why can't he
pitch into one of his own size? say a North
River steamboat, or lash his elongated fiery
narrative against the seven wonders of the
world, and let us alone? Mr. Comet, what
is the use of acting in this way? Go along
about your business. We are not ready to
go yet, and if we were, we are not so absent
minded as to ask Gabriel to blow his horn.—
You know there's plenty of other planets.—
What are you foolin' round here for? Go to
the Arctic regions and melt things, that Yan

Walker's Pillibustering Career.
The return of WALKER from the scene of
his exploits in Nicaragua closes, for the pres
ent, the drama of fillibusterism. Consider
ing the extraordinary combination of perils
by which he was environed, and the utter
hopelessness of his position atßivas, his sur
render was peculiarly opportune, and the in
tervention of Capt. DAVIS and his retreat to
the 11. S. Sloop of War, St. Marys, a very
fortunate solution of his difficulties.
Whatever errors of judgment WALKER may
have committed in Nicaragua, - and whatever
we may think of the character of his enter
prise, it is certain that he has throughout
displayed extraordinary bravery, and his final
surrender and abandonment of his projects
was only induced by such a combination of
mishaps and of hostile influences as would
have appalled the stoutest heart that ever
beat. He had openly arrayed against his
little handful of followers an allied army
vastly superior in numbers; his forces were
rapidly thinning by death, sickness and de
sertion; starvation stared him in the face ;
all hopes of relief were cut off; and all idea
of further resistance was absolute folly. The
statistics of WALKER'S battles exhibit an ex
traordinary series of successes against tre
mendous odds. Gen. HENINGSON'S account
of the war sums up the results as follows :
Force of Walker from the time of his land
ing in Nicaragua to the Ist of May, 1857,
a space of nearly two years, (exclusive of
Lockbridges force,) - - 2,510
Total force of the Allies, exclusive of
1,200 Costa Ricans, said to have been
on the river, - - - - 18,800
Of this number, 11,500 men were from
Guatemala, Costa Rica, Honduras and Salva
Total killed and wounded of Walker's
force 815, say - - - 850
Total Allies killed and wounded, - 5,860
This is without counting on either side
those who died of disease. The mortality in
the enemy's camp was very great. Two gen
erals died at the siege of Granada ; and in
April 16, 1856, of 2,400 men who retreated
from Rivas with Mora, at least 1000 died of
cholera, only 500 entering San Jose with him.
To this force of 2,slB—the total force Wal
ker had under arms during two years since
his landing in the country—it is hardly neces
sary to add the armed citizens, who fought at
Granada and Rivas, because they were, with
a score of exceptions, disbanded soldiers; and
it must be borne in mind that if many un
wounded died, a large proportion of the woun
It is estimated that, during two years, of
2,500 enlisted or holding commissions, about
1,000 were killed, or died of wounds or sick
ness, 700 deserted, 250 were discharged, 480
were at Rivas on the Ist of May, and 80 in
garrison or on steamers on the river. Total,
2,46 s—leaving 53 unaccounted for.
It will be perceived from these tables,
which are substantially correct, (whatever
errors they contain being in favor of the al
lies,) that this has been no ordinary contest,
either as regards the obstinacy with which
Walker's men fought, or the odds against
which they were pitted; and to enable the
reader to discern that this has been no holi
day work, it will suffice to point out that in
proportion to the number engaged, the loss
of the Americans in this war in Nicaragua
averages more than double the number lost
in the battles of Mexico, by Taylor or Scott,
and, that Walker's men were engaged against
an average of more than double the disparity
of force which the United States armies had
to struggle against in Mexico. Those readers
who will take the trouble to figure out the
matter will discover that the loss, for instance,
at Rivas, 11th April, 1856, was 24 per cent.
of the American force engaged; at Massaya,
Nov. 17, 35 per cent. ; at Granada, 37 per
cent. ; at San Jorge, in the first battle, 23 per
cent. ; in the last, 18 per cent. Gen. Tay
lor's report for the first day's battle of Mon
terey, in Mexico, gives about 8 per cent.
They will further discover that the average
fighting in Nicaragua has been rather more
severe (in proportion to the numbers enga
ged) than the memorable struggle of Niaga
ra and Lundy's Lane. When it is consider
ed that this lighting has been really done by
about one thousand men of Walker's force,
under most unfavorable circumstances, it may
fairly be regarded that they have sustained,
as far as courage is concerned, the credit of
their-country's name, and redeem the weak
ness or the shame of those who could not face
prolonged endurance or continued danger, or
shrunk from before the frown of the insid
ious protector of Central America—England.
GOOD GRIT.-A Train of Cars Stopped by
a Woman !—A correspondent of the Norris
town Republican relates the following inci
dent as occurring on the North Pennsylvania
Railroad, in Whitemarsh. The lady in ques
tion was evidently not born to be killed by a
"A lady, who wished to take passage in a
certain train was too late, and came in sight
of the station, at which she intended to get
aboard, just as the ears were leaving it.—
As she was near the road and the train was
coming towards her, she was determined not
to be left behind. She sprang upon the track
and waved her handkerchief as a, signal for
the cars to stop. The engineer slackened his
speed and steamed his whistle furiously to
warn her to "get out of the way;" but she
was made of sterner stuff than to be fright
ened by steam, and stood her ground (man
fully!) The iron Torso being reined in and
brought to a halt, she was taken "aboard"
and accomplished her journey.
SEIV-By the quiet fireside at Home, the true
mother in the midst of her children, is sowing
as in vases of earth the seeds of plants that
shall some time give Heaven the fragrance of
their blossoms, and whose fruit be a rosary of
angelic deeds, the noblest offering that she
can make through the ever ascending and
ever expanding souls of her children to her
Maker. Every word that she utters goes from
heart to heart with a power of which she lit
tle dreams. Solemn at the thought, but not
more solemn to the Christian mother than
the thought that every word that falls from
her lips, every expression of her countenance,
even in the sheltered walk and retirement,
may leave an indelible impression upon tl
young souls around her, and form as it were
the underling strain of that education which
peoples heaven with that celestial being, and
gives to the white brow of the angel next to
the grace of God. its crown of glory..

IRVIN, wife of Henry L. Harvey, aged about 27 years.
The deceased was a native of Lycommg county,
born in Jersey Shore, having resided for the last few years
in this county. Respected and esteemed by all who knew
her ; a kind and affectionate companion; a devoted and
confiding friend; a consistent and worthy ehristian ; her
sudden and unexpected departure has caused a void in the
family circle, in society and in the church of the Redeemer,
which will not soon be filled. Mysterious, unfathomable,
and utterly beyond the comprehension of finite minds, aro
the ways of an all-wise Providence! How little did the
writer of this brief notice suppose when last we met to
gether ; when sharing the joys, and partaking of tho hos
pitalities of that happy family circle, that this peaceful
home was so soon to be overshadowed by the dark wing o f
the Destroying Angel, and that this sad tribute to the
memory of departed worth was so soon to be required.—

beyond the portals of the tomb—beneath the unclouded

nature, "al! is well" through Him that bath loved us and
washed us from our sins in His own precious blood.
"Row sweet it is to think—hereafter
When this spirit leaves its sphere,
That Love on deathless wing shall waft her
To all she loved and longed for hero 1 •
And if no higher boon were given,
To keep our hearts from wrong and stain ;
Who would not strive to win a Heaven,
Where all we loved shall meet again."

Dr. Hardman treats Consumption, Bronchitis, Asthma,
Larryngittis and all diseases of the throat and lungs, by
Medical Inhalation, lately used in the Bromton Hospital,
London. The great point in the treatment of all human
maladies, is to get at the disease in the direct manner.—
All medicines are estimated by their action upon the organ
requiring relief. This is the important fact upon which
Inhalation is based. If the stomach is diseased we take
medicine directly into the stomach. If the lungs are dis
eased, breathe or inhale medicated vapors directly into
the lungs. Medicines are antidotes
.to disease and should
be applied to the very - seat of disease. Inhalation is the
application of this principle to the treatment of the lungs,
for it gives us.direct access to those intricate air cells, and
tubes which lie eirthof reach of every other means of ad
ministering medicines. Tho reason that Consumption,
and other diseases of the lungs, have heretofore resisted
all treatment has been because they have never been ap
proached in a direct manner by medicine. They were in
tended to act upon the lungs, and yet were applied to the
stomach. Their action was intended to be local, and yet,
they were so administered that they should only act con
stitutionally, expending their immediate and principal ac
tion upon the unoffeuding stomach, whilst the foul ulcers
within the lungs were unmolested. Inhalation brings
the medicine In direct contact with the disease. without
the disadvantage of any violent action. Its application Is
so simple, that it can be employed by the youngest infant
or feeblest invalid It does not derange the stomach, or in
terfere in the least deg - ree with the strength, comfort, or
business of the patient.
Other Diseases Treated.—ln relation to the following dis
eases, either when complicated with lung affections or ex
isting alone, I also invite consultation, I usually find them
Prolapses and all oilier forms of Female CoMplaints, Ir
regularities and Weakness.
Palpitation and all other forms of Heart Disease, Liver
Complaints, Dyspepsia, and all other diseases of stomach
and bowels, Cc.
All diseases of the eye and ear. Neuralgia, Epilepsy,
and all forms of nervous disease.
