THE HUNTINGDON GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS,, &C.
The Utah News from
[Froth the St. Louis Itapublican of March 15th.]
Very unexpectedly, Mr. John Hartnett,
Secretary of the Territory of Utah, arrived
in this, city Saturday night, from the Camp

different kinds of food, the scurvy was alto
All intercourse between the Mormons of
Salt Lake - Valley and the troops at Camp
Scott ceased. after the first of January. It
was, however, well established that the Mor
mons were actively employed in fortifying
the most important passes leading to salt
Lake city, and that they intended to offer re
sistance to the advance of the army upon
their city. It is admitted that the cannons,
fortfied and in the posession of determied
men, offer very great, if not insurmountable
obstacles, to the march of the troops: and it
was seriously discussed in camp whether the
march upon Salt Lake city should not be
made by another route, a hundred miles lon
ger in distance, but presenting fewer obstruc
tions, and those of no serious magnitude.—
This, it was supposed, would be done as soon
as reinforcements, supplies, and particularly
animals, could. be obtained. Col. Johnston cal
culated upon receiving this aid by the latter
part of May, or first of June. Ile had order
ed the troops at Forts Laramie and Kearney
to join him at the earliest possible period
this spring, and they will move, it is under
stood, as soon as forage sufficient for the an
imals can be obtained.
It is satisfactory to know that the reports
which represented that the Indians of that
country were in the interest of, and would
takes sides with, the Mormons, are incorrect.
A large party of the tTtahs—two • hundered
in number of the principal men—had been
in Camp Scott, were well recieved by the
Superintendent, who distributed presents to
them, and assurances of peaceful intentions
towards the Americans were given. Such
was the general tenor of the information ob
tained from the traders among them. The
Cheyennes on the route also professed a de
sire to be at peace with our people, acknowl
edging they had been whipped by them.—
The Indians were not, however, so peaeea
lap inclined toward each other, and as large
numbers of the Cheyennes, Pawnees, and
sioux were in close proximity to each other,
near O'Fallon's Bluff, a fight was expected.
The coldest weather experienced at Camp
Scott put the mercury 14 degrees below zero
at sunrise, but the days were usually warm
and dry, and as the camp is favorably loca
ted in a valley, and wood was plenty, there
was not a great deal of suffering from this
cause. At no time had the snow been more
than five or six inches deep there. A theatre,
under canvas, was one of the most popular
sources of amusement for the troops, and. it
was well attended.
In his progress from Camp Scott, Mr. Hart
nett's party found scarcely any snow until
they got to the South Pass. On the south
side of that Pass, the snow was from one and
a half to three and a half feet deep for thirty
miles. The crust of the snow was sufficient
to bear the weight of the men, but the pack
mules suffered terribly, breaking through the
crust, and frequently stumbling and falling
down. From that point to Fort Laramie there
was no snow, but the weather was exceeding
ly cold. On the second day out from Lara
mie, a general thaw commenced, and the road
was muddy — and full of water until they had
reached Fort Kearney. There the weather
was warm and the road better. Grass may
be expected at an earlier period than usual.
The Territorial Government was in rather
a passive state at Camp Scott, waiting the
movements which would take the officers to
the seat of Government at Great Salt Lake
City. Col. Johnson was very popular with
his command, comprising, with the volun
teers, some two thousand three hundred men,
and the most friendly relations existed be
tween him and the civil division of the
Notwithstanding the culpable delay of
Congress in providing means and money for
the troops which have been ordered to the
assistance of Col. Johnston, and which, it is
admitted, should have been done, the Ad
ministration has not been unmindful of its
duty in this emergency. In three or four
weeks, at least 3,000 troops will lie en route
from Fort Leavenworth, and every effort
will be made to reach Camp Scott in the
time indicated by Col. Johnston. But wo
be to Congress, if, from their neglect, that
succor should fail, and this gallant army be
cut off. It is known to be in the contempla
tion of the Mormons to attack Camp Scott, if
a favorable opportunity is given them, before

occasioned in Cumberland county,' Pennsyl

years ago. The gipsy girl's father was so
enraged at this, that he kidnaped her, and
sent her to parts unknovrn. Mr. Fry mourned
her loss two years, and then married again.

Remarkable Angelic Visitations in Han
cock County, Ohio.
[From the Kenton (Ohio) Republican, March 12.]
According to the most accurate and relia
ble information we can get, Orange town
ship, in the southwestern corner of Hancock
county, has recently been made the favored
locality of one of those remarkable visita
tions which the people have learned to re
gard as very "few and far between"—an an
gel visit. We briefly give the particulars,
as we received them, front a source that all
will concede is entirely reliable and entitled
to , Confidence: Some time in August last, a
bright, intelligent little girl, aged five years,
daughter of Mr. Charles, who resides in the
locality described, while near the well in the
yard, about noon of the day, seemed to dis
cern something high up in the air, and de
scending towards her. The attention of the
child was so much drawn to the object, that
her gaze became riveted upon it, , and. as it
drew nearer, she was observed to make fre
quent attempts to reach it with her hands,
and form a closer acquaintance -with the
strange visitant. When the mother of the
child was called to the scene, the little girl
informed her that she was in the presence of
an angel ; that she had. talked with it ; that
it had made communications to her ; and
furthermore, gave a description of it, accord
ing in every particular with the generally
received impression of the appearance of
these messengers from above. To satisfy
herself that there could be no delusion in
the matter, the mother entered into conversa
tion with the stranger, and after being satis
fied. with the reality of the interview—and
after having seen and talked with the- angel
face to face—and after receiving information
from it of the precise time when her own
death would occur—she retired from the
spot, taking her little girl with. her, and the
angel waving its bright wings, returned
When the mother and child were alone,
they talked freely of what they had seen
and heard, and the mother's sadness was
made deeper by the artless story of the
child, who said that " the angel told her she
would die just two months from the time
she first saw it, at precisely twelve o'clock
and twenty-five minutes; that she would be
three days in dying ; that her death would
be unlike that of others ; that her friends
would suppose her to be in a trance ; that
her eyes would not be closed ; that her funer
al sermon would be preached in three weeks
after in the new school house of the neigh
borhood, by a man whom, with his horse
and buggy, she described, and that her
friends would have difficulty in procuring
the house for the occasion." The mother
kept the sad secret to herself, and waited for
the appointed time, hoping that all might
yet go well with her and hers, and not caring
to be reckoned as one who would attempt to
revive the defunct doctrine of spiritualism.
But with the time came the terrible blow.
Three days before the time predicted for
her death, the little girl fell upon the floor,
from whence she was taken to bed, and at
the hour and minute foretold, on the third
day breathed her last. Her eyes remained
open after death, and could not be cloSed.—
'Friends, supposing her to be entranced,
made vain efforts to restore her to life. A
few days after her burial, Rev. 11. P. Darst
was passing that way, a friend of Mrs.
Charles required him to tarry awhile and
preach the little girl's funeral sermon. The
reverend-gentleman excused himself on the
ground of having prior engagements, but
promised to do so in a short time. His per
son and- equipments corresponded in the
most minute particulars with the prophetic
description, and when he did return to re
' deem his promise, the workmen who had
built the new schoolhouse, having a lien
upon it, refused to let it be opened for the
funeral service ; but subsequently they gave
up the key, and the sermon was preached at
the exact time predicted.
The bereaved mother intended that the
knowledge of these prophecies and their ful
filments should go out of time with her, but
recently, the secrecy bearing more crushing
ly upon her, she determined to reveal the
whole Matter, and in accordance with this
determination, one day last week she sent
for John Latimore, Esq., and Samuel Wood,
one of our county commissioners, and to
them gave the particulars, the most promi
nent of which we have given. The gentle
men named are among the oldest, most re
spectable, and influential citizens of our
county, their well-known character for integ
rity is sufficient guaranty that they would
not favor a wrong action, or in any way as
sist in giving publicity to a story, as to the
truth of which they had a reasonable doubt.
These gentlemen, we understand, have taken
down the facts, as Mrs. Charles related them,
for the purpose of giving them to the public,
in pamphlet form. They both bear testimo
ny to the good character and standing of the
lady who makes the revelation, and would
regard anything coming from her as entitled
Bank Robbers---How they treat them. in
A recent arrival from Europe brings intelli
gence that the directors of the the Royal Brit
ish Bank have been tried, convicted and sen
tenced to imprisonment for misdemeaner in
the management of the affairs of that institu
tion. These men were regarded as respecta
ble citizens, moving in good society. They
may be presumed to have had numerous
friends, and we may suppose that potent in
fluences were brought to bear to screen them
from justice. But the laws are impartially
administered in England. No man, however
lofty his position, can expect to escape with
impunity, if he is guilty of fraud or outrage.
We commend this example of British justice
to those who are continually asserting the
superiority of our own legal administration.
In this country, the directors would probably
have escaped without even a trial. Far from
being condemned to a prison cell, they would
continue to be received in the "best society."
The security of the community depends up
on the certainty of justice, and in this re
spect, England, with all her arristocratic
distinctions, enjoys a decided advantage over
the United States, with its "political equali
ty." The truth of these remarks, however
unsavory they may be to our republican nos
trils, were only too truly verified in this com
munity, by the escape of certain gentlemen
who plundered without stint and who moved
in the "best society." Had they lived and
committed these depredations in England
they would have met quite annother fate.—

The Great Northwest—What the Census
of 2860 will Show.
The United States census, which according
to law will be taken in 1860, will show the
"Great Northwest' a Republic in itself. In
extent it far surpasses the Southern and East
ern States combined, and the figureswill show
that in the increase of its population and
wealth, it has left the other sections of the
Union clear in the back ground.
Among the States so designated will num
ber then the following :
Ohio, Wisconsin, Indiana,
lowa, Illinois, Minnesota,
Michigan, Kansas, Nebraska.
These States and Territories are now rep
resented in Congress - by - twelve Senators, fif
ty-six Representatives, and three Delegates.
Under the census of 1860, with the present
ratio of representation, they will be entitled
to eighteen Senators, and from eighty to nine
ty Representatives, far more than enough to
hold the balance of power in both branches
of Congress, between the ,North and South.
Instead of fiddling second to these older sec
tions of the Union, and being set aside when
ever the honors and emoluments of Govern
ment are distributed, the world in future will
know there is a West. It only wants concert
of action, combination, if need be, like our
brethren of the South, to have our proper in

Mississippi and the basin of the Great Lakes
must inevitably be the political as well as the
centre of this great nation—such is manifest
destiny. The trade of these inland seas now
equals our whole foreign traffic—a fact which,
lately announced in Congress by one - of our
Western Representatives, was despatched by
telegraph to the Associated Press, startling
the whole country. It is time this Western
world threw off its swaddling-clothes and be
gan to set up business for itself. t It has been
in the hands of gnardians long enough. It
is of ago as we in the West count years. and
its manhood should now be asserted. We are
dependent on nobody for anything. We raise
all we want to eat and wear, and have pro

the world besides. We have a commerce of
our own, both foreign and domestic. We
have the largest prairies, longest railroads,
and the richest lands on the globe. We have
all the elemnts of individual happiness and
national greatness that any people can desire,
and we only need the determination to con

we do it? Shall we now break off our vas
salage to other and older parts of this Union,
and take our position as the integral but In

on this subject? Let us hear from you, gen

you that do their own thinking. Let us see

John McDonough, who died a few years
ago in New Orleans, left an enormous for
tune, which he had amassed through a long
life of miserly toil. He allowed himself no
indulgence, had no society, no friends no plea
sure, intellectual or animal. He was not a
scholar, nor a man of taste, and he never even
allowed himself the happiness of doing a gen
erous action. He never sought the zeptrta
tion, while living, of being benevolent or
charitable. To the day of his death he de
voted himself to accumulating money and in
creasing his possessions. Ile left lands and
property equal in extent and value to many
an European principality, and he died totally
unlamented. His will showed that his ob
ject in accumulating was to build up a name
for benevolence after death. He could not
carry his fortunes with him, and he bequeathed
the greater part of it to the city of Baltimore,
where he was born, and the city of New Or
leans, where he resided. The wonderful van
ity of appearing to be a great man after he
was in the grave, made him deny himself all
rational happiness in life.
The instances are very rare in which large
estates, left for benevolent or charitable pur
poses, have been administered so as to fulfil
the testator's wishes. A will of that kind can
rarely be faithfully executed. A great amount
of the property is always wasted in litigation,
and trustees always take a wide license in
the management of their trust. This McDon
ough estate, which was believed to be worth
many millions, has been depleted and reduced
by litigation, and, at length, after some years
have elapsed since the decease of Mr. Mc-
Donough, the Supreme Court of Louisiana
have substantially declared the will a nullity.
The estate will be distributed among a num
ber of private hands. The cities of New Or
leans and Baltimore will obtain considerable
property, which may become very valuable:
but it will not amount to anything like what
was expected, and the grand plans of the tes
tator, which formed the plan of his miserly
life, will never he carried. out.
If there are, among our readers, any who
may be contemplating plans similar to those
of McDonough, and hoarding money in life,
with a view to bequeathing it, in trust for be
nevolent or other purposes, to corporations,
we trust they will. take warning by his case.
No man can have his wishes carried out by
deputy so well as by himself, and the risks of
their failure are far greater, if they are left
to be executed after death. However care
fully framed the laws may be, there are al
ways loop-holes, through which administra
tors and trustees, who may be disposed to vi
olate a will, can escape. Again, all extraor
dinary bequests, out of the line of regular
inheritance, must run the gauntlet of severe
litigation, and courts always incline natural
ly to construe wills most liberally in favor of
lawful heirs. There is very little sincere re
spect for a dead man's wishes, especially if
the man had been niggardly and selfish in his
lifetime. It is a grea deal better to dispose
of a fortune while living, to see that it is not
wasted or perverted. For any failure in at
taining the object proposed, the owner him
self is then alone responsible. The instan
ces, like McDonough's, of the waste of the
vast estates left for special public objects, are
so numerous, that it is astonishing to hear of
any one proposing to bequeath his property
in a similar manner.—Evening Bulletin.
Regular Habits of Industry
Industry is but of little value unless it be
regular. No good is gained by working by
fits and starts. To avoid the formation of
habits of irregularity, endeavor to go upon a
fixed determinate plan, in reference both to
your periods of study and reflection. To a
perseverance in tho plan you have laid down
for yourself, add the virtue of punctuality.
One half of the people you meet with, have no
accurate idea on this important 'natter.—
They make life a play, and what is truly ri
diculous, many of them perform their parts
very badly. Instead of being punctual. they
care not show they keep their engagements,
and thus punctual men get ahead of them.—
Many complain that they are prevented from
being punctual by the.multiplicity of their
engagements. But this, in most instances,
is a delusion ; all men may be punctual to
the extent which is necessary to gairx , them

DISASTROUS FIRE.—The Fort Pitt Machine
Shops and Foundry Destroyed.—Loss, over
slBo,ooo.—About 3 o'clock, Thursday morn
ing, fire was discovered in the Fort Pitt
Works, owned by Messrs. Knapp, Wade &
Co., and located in the Fifth Ward, upon the
bank of the Allegheny river, immediately
above the Water Works. The 'works occu
pied an entire square, about 250 feet in
length by 100 feet in width—and were bound
ed by O'Hara, Walnut and Etna streets, and
the Allegheny river.
The fire was first seen issuing from the
second story of the Engine and Finishing
shop on O'Hara street, and the watchman
on the premises giving the alarm immedi
ately, a number of engines were soon on the
ground and playing on the burning building.
The firemen worked with a will, and strained
every nerve to subdue the flames, but the
dry material with which the upper story of
the building was filled, coupled with the fact
that a high wind prevailed at the time, ren
dered their efforts useless, and the. destroy
ing element swept on, nor was it checked in
its wild career until the entire works were
reduced to a heap of ruins.
The flames extended from the Engine and
Finishing shop to the other buildings, con
suming in turn the Boiler and Smith shop,
the Foundry, the Cannon Boring mill, the
office, sheds, &c. The main buildings were
all large and substantial, and stored with
very valuable machinery. Five steam en
gines were destroyed, and an immense quan
tity of the choicest and most valuable pat
terns. The lower part of the office, which
was partly fire-proof, and in which the books
and papers of the firm were kept, escaped
with comparatively little damage. One of
the doors gave way or warped before the in
tense heat to which it was subjected, and a
few papers lying on a desk near it, were
burned ; but the books, &c., of the office, re
ceived no injury whatever. In the second
story of the office an immense number of
drawings, many of them gotten up at a great
expense, were stored away. They are a to

were founded in 1814. The articles there
manufactured are celebrated all over the

establishment could not be excelled, their
guns being superior to those made at West

The Humbug of Disunion
The Richmond Enquirer of the 11th, in a
sensible article on the subject, thus speaks
of the rumored movements of certain fire
eating members of Congress looking towards
a dissolution of the Union :
Whispers are circulated to the effect that
something of concealed importance is now
in process of concoction among members of
Congress, which threatens a speedy outburst
of sectional dissension. Let us not not be
deceived. Members of Congress are not pos
sessed of an exclusive privilege either to
read the signsto of the times, orcontrol the
tendency events. They may do much to
obstruct, and more to assist, certain popular
movements. But there are some things in
our political world which are far beyond
their reach. - It requires the warmth of sov
ereignty itself to hatch disunion, and not
one sovereign voice has ever yet pronounced
in favor of dissolution:* Newspaper corres
pondents may discover mares' nests—honor
able members may shrug their shoulders
and wear mysterious faces—violent dema
gogues may raise a loud cry of false alarm—
air this and more may become a matter of
daily recurrence, and yet the Union will re
main safe in the hands of its proper guardi
ans, the people of the States. The treasure
of the Union and the treasure of State Rights
are both intrusted to their keeping. There
is no danger of their being lulled into a false
security. When they are called upon to pre
pare for the worst—to face disunion itself
for the sake of State Rights—their answer
will be, "We are already prepared." - * *
There is no present danger of disunion, sim
ply because there is no proximate cause of
disunion. Conservative Democrats need only
prepare to defeat an attempt against .their
party organization. This is the only danger
which can possibly result from all the in
trigues and clamors which affect to assume
the form of a movement for a dissolution of

" I suspect there_is no city in the Union—
I am confident there is none abroad—where
the majority of the ruling authorities are so
invariably from the dregs of the people, as
they are in this wretchedly misgoverned city.
It is almost impossible to secure a seat here,
in either Board of the Common Council un
less you keep a tavern, a faro table, a livery
stable, a model artist saloon, a policy office,
or the haunt of some clique of shoulder-hit
ters, panel-thieves, and blacklegs. Either of
these respectable callings will entitle you to
become an alderman or councilman, when
you are at liberty to get drunk, to fight in the
streets, to get up disturbances in the bagnois
of our city, and to disgrace your constituents
generally with perfect impunity. The more
infamously you may conduct yourself en such
occasions, the more characteristic will it be

On Wednesday, the 10th inst., in the neigh
borhood of Edward Furnace, Shirley town
ship, Edward Custis, aged abont 30 years,
and his sou James,- aged about 15 years,
were so horribly mangled by the premature
explosion of a blast, as to cause their death
soon after. The unfortunate sufferers were
in the act of mining,—excavating a drift un
der ground,—and in blasting a rock, through
whic they were penetrating, the powder by
some means ignited, while the elder Custis
was operating with the needle, literally shat
tering his hand and a portion of his arm by
the explosion, and otherwise injuring him so
as to cause his death on the following day.—
The boy, who was, at the time of the explo
sion, close to his father, had his head and
face horribly mangled : ho lingered until
Friday morning, when death terminated his
suffering. The father, after the explosion,
walked to his residence, a distance of half a
mile,.and reported the occurrence. Mr. 0.
Etnier repaired to the scene, and found the
boy lying on the ground at the place of the
accident, in a horribly mangled condition.—
He, with much effort, carried him to a neigh
boring house. There were none else at work
at the time of the accident. The deceased
leaves a wife and three children.—Shirleys
