ME CENTRAL BANK OF TIOLLIDAYSBITEG.-
From the Hollidaysburg Register of Wednes
day we learn that the Central Bank of that
place, chartered by the Legislature of 1857,
is at least in a way of being fairly established.
The necessary stock has been subscribed by
substantial business men in Philadelphia—
fifteen of them subscribing $lO,OOO each, and
paying in $75,000. They were to elect offi
cers and regularly organize on Thursday, and
would commence operations without delay;
taking for their banking rooms for the pres
ent the place now occupied by Billy Smith's
Girard Saloon. The Register thinks that the
institution will stand on such a basis, and be
in the hands of such men, as will entitle it to
the confidence of the country.
A frightful accident occurred a few days
since on the New York Central Railroad at
Sauquoit creek in Oneida county. A pas

and 40 or 50 badly injured.
On the 15th a bridge on the Lafayette and
Indianapolis Railroad, gave way as the night
train from Cincinnati was passing over it,
and the whole train was precipitated into the

• lam now amid the scenes of my
childhood. Old and familiar friends greet
me. The recollections of the past crowd thick
and fast upon my memory. I traverse the
haunts of former days ; I rest beneath the
oak whose shade has oft refreshed my weary
step ; I meander along the mountain base,
where grows the stately elm; I recline on the
mossy bank of the crystal rill, near which I
have passed many a silent hour in pensive
thought; I listen with increasing delight to
the merry voice of nature's songster as it rises
on the wings of the air in sweetest praise to
the source of its life. Then Igo to visit once
again the halls, whence gush in rich profu
sion, the streams of knowledge; I gaze upon
the inquiring mind as it bends to " drink
deep of the Pierian Spring." I linger; then,
turn away from all these scenes, sad that they
are by me no more to be enjoyed. Yet, there
is pleasure in my sadness. The thought that
that these, all these once were mine, throws
such a halo around the past, that, for the mo
ment, I forget its sorrows, musing silently
o'er its joys. But brief, ah t stung brief, is
this fond feast of mind. There is one retreat
that has been forgotten. Forgotten? NEVER.
I view it now. 'Tis the spot where the re
mains of loved ones repose. Hallowed be its
memory forever ! Its solemn silence speaks
a mournful truth. Its livid marble, sad in
dex of mortality, points to buried hopes, to
departed friends. Tread gently o'er this sa
cred ground; softly repose beneath its wil
lows' shade; for soon its dampened clay shall
be thy winding sheet, its hollow winds, thy
This scene, so full of gloomy thoughts, I
leave to seek the social hearth of those with
whom I long have mingled. Here, happy
place, the heart's deep fountains overflow
their bounds and open a world, to formal life
unknown. Sweet retirement, like the gush
ing oasis in the desert's waste, you cheer the
weary pilgrim on his way.
This, my native Cassville, completes thy en
dearments. ➢Tay time never dim the remem

her everlasting abode in the homes of thy
people ; and may thou, old Cassville, remain
just as thou art, the Mecca of my mind.
Borrowing a Dollar
In the Pittsburg correspondence of the
Philadelphia Press, of may 6th, we find the
"The learned and excellent Bishop O'Con
nor, of Pittsburg, has reached his home after
a prolonged absence in Cuba and Mexico.—
Between the Mexican capital and Vera Cruz,
the coach in which he was riding was sur

travellers complied with all the grace and
resignation of the unfortunate wretch who
seats himself in the cushioned arm-chair of a
dentist for the purpose of having aback tooth
extracted. Clergymen are invariably poor.
On this ocasion the Bishop, fortunately for
himself, had but eighteen dollars in his pos

As the gentlemen of the road were about ta

of a dollar." The money was at once given
him, and the robbers went on their way re
joicing at their good fortune. Such are the
incidents of life. how diversified, how strange
and how stirring ! The distinguished divine,
the profound theologian, and the beloved
spiritual adviser, who has dined with Popes
and supped with cardinals, and reclined on
the banks of the classic Tiber, is reduced to
the necessity of borrowing a dollar from a
rude guerilla, in order to meet the charge of
a jolly landlord for a morning meal! I have
this story from a prominent member of the
Catholic church, and believe it to be strictly
true. It is interesting and suggestive, and
in the hands of llogarth or Cruiksbanks would
made a capital picture."

The St. Louis Republican has received the
Independence Messenger of Saturday last.—
It speaks of the arrival of J. A. Freeman,

before the patty left, from Great Salt Lake
City, in a bad plight,--frost-bitten and near

were equipping companies to go out oil the

harass the troops.
The best news is that Colonel Hoffman,
with two companies of cavalry, and one hun

one hundred and fifty miles this side of Port
Laramie on the 13th of April. About one
hundred and fifty wagons with supplies were
ready to leave Laramie as goon as Colonel
Hoffman arrived. These trains would reach
General Johnstons early in May.
The first ox-teams that started this spring
were met just beyond Big Blue, and then
trains were continually passing; but in con

slow progress, and some of them had stopped,
waiting for better roads.

A Tale of Terror
A very singular and rather a marvelous
story has recently appeared in a Vienna jour
nal. It appears that as a farmer of Orsinovi
near that city, was lately returning- home
from market, lie stopped at a roadside pub
lie house, and imprudently shoWed the inn
keeper a large sum which he bad received.—
In the night the innkeeper, armed with a
poignard, stole into the farmer's chamber
and prepared to stab him, but the farmer,
who, from the man's manner at supper, con
ceived suspicions of foul play ; had thrown,
himself on the bed fully dressed, without
going to sleep, and being a powerful man, he
wrested the poignard from the other, and
using it against him, laid him dead at his
feet. A few moments after, ho heard stones
thrown at the window, and a voice, which he
recognized as that of the innkeeper's son,
said, "The grave is ready !" This proved to
him that the-father and son had planed his
murder, and to avoid detection, had inten
ded burying the dead body at once. lie
thereupon wrapped the body in the sheet,
and let it clown from a window, he then ran
to the gendarmerie and stated what had oc
curred. Three gendarmeries immediately
accompanied him to the house, and found the
young man busily engaged in shovelling earth
in to the grave. "'What are you burying ?"
said they. "Only a horse which has just
died ?" "You are mistaken," replied one
of them, jumping in to the grave, and rais
ing the corpse, " Look 1" and he held up a
lantern to the face of the deceased. "Good
God!" cried the young man, thunderstruck.
"Itis my father !" lie was then arrested,
and at once confessed all.
The New Militia Bill
One of the acts of the last Legislature was
to pass a militia bill, which we find put into
the following condensed form by the Reading
"Its provisions require every able-bodied
men between the ages of eighteen and forty
five years, with some specified exceptions, to
be subject to military duty." 'leis to provide
himself with the necessary equipments, un
der the penalty of a fine of one dollar for
non performance, if a resident of the rural
districts, and one dollar and fifty cents if liv
ing in a city—the fund thus raised to be ap
propriated to the support of the "enlisted and
equipped" militia men. The militia enrol
ment is entirely dispensed with, and all vol
unteer companies parading are allowed for
every person on parade each day, not exceed
ing six times during the year, one dollar
and fifty cents per diem out of the fund. In
addition to this, the commanding officer of a
regiment may order out the companies com
posing it for an encampment parade, not ex
ceeding six days, once during the year.—
These provisions are intended as an induce
ment to young men who cannot afford to lose
the time which gratuitous parades necessari
ly require. The new law will suit the citi
zen soldiers very well, and go far to increase
the military spirit througout the State."
TERRIBLE MURDER NEAR PORTSMOUTII, 01110.
—The Portsmouth Tribune, of May 7th, has
the following account of the murder of Mrs.
Samuel Morgan, by her husband, at Frank
lin Furnace, Ohio. Morgan is fifty-five years
of age, and has a large family. His charac
At the time of the murder, (about 7 o'clock
on Wednesday evening,) there were some of
the smaller children at home, and a woman
named Sarah Chamberlain, who, It seems,
has been an inmate of the house for some
time, and a cause of difficulty between Mor
gan and his wife. The house is situated
about three hundred yards from neighbors. On
Wednesday evening a dispute arose between
Morgan and his wife, when she started across
the yard to escape. In getting over the fence,
Morgan struck her with a piece of fence rail,
felling her to the ground, and he repeated
the blows until life was extinct. Mrs. Chtun'-
berlain and the children were witnesses to
the damning spectacle. After Morgan found
his wife was dead, he bade one of the chil
dren bring him a log chain, which he put
around the neck of the corpse, and then
dragged it across the yard. Here he pro
ceeded to strip the body of all clothing, and
then left it lying at the door all night, while
he remained in the house until next morn

"The grand jury of this place has found a

who, several weeks ago, shot 11. C. H. Stone,
whom he charged with seducing his daugh

trial will probably take place in the course of
a month, or six weeks. Public opinion now
seems to be that the homicide was totally in
excusable, and that young Stone had met an .
unmerited fate. This is a truly melancholy
case. The father is comparatively an old
man, and stood well in the community as a
teacher of youth ; now he is immersed in a
dungeon and charged with murder. Stone
was just entering life with peculiar advan

;3Er There has been a great deal of excite
ment in Franklin, Johnson county, Indiana,
recently, in consequence of the mobocratic
demonstrations of an old woman, named Ma
ry B. Myers, upon the groceries of that town.
It appears, that the woman Myers demol
ished tha stock in trade of a man named Pet
ty, while he was at dinner, consisting of can
dies, raisins, candles, and a keg of beer and
cider. She then attacked the establishment
of a Mr. Isacs, who defended his premises,
for which he was fined twenty dollars I She

woman Myers was fined one cent and costs!
A Tale of Horrors---An Incarnate Fiend
---Can it be ?
Gov. McWillie, of Mississippi, is charged
by the Vicksburg Sonthron with having par
doned out of the Penitentiary a man named
Dyson, who had assassinated another man
named Nelms, for which he was simply sen
tenced to the prison for fourteen years.—
That paper says of the criminal:
He waylaid his victim, with whom be had
a deadly feud ; brought him down at the first
shot, and then, emerging from his hiding
place, taunted his dying victim with words
of insult and reproach, and finally concluded
by placing the muzzle of his gun to the body
of Nelms and firing a second time. This
shot produced instant death, and so close
was the gun to the victim that the flesh of
the murdered man was burnt by the explo
sion. Having completed the work of slaugh
ter, he deliberately mounted his horse, rude
to the house of Nelms, called his wife out,
informed her that he had murdered her hus
band, and directed her where to find his
mangled corpse! _
Dyson is a blood-stained, blood-thirsty, in
carnate fiend. He is not a man, but a fero
cious tiger, and Gov. MelVillie has no more
right to turn such a. beast loose upon the
community than he has to open the cages of
a whole caravan of tigers. His antecedents
are well known, too, and they should have
forbidden all hope of Executive clemency.—
The murder of Nelms was not his first taste
of blood. He had previously, in a most base
and cowardly manner, murdered a lawyer
named Moss, of De Soto county, by shooting
him in the back as Moss rode from him.—
He had murdered three of his own negrocs,
and one of them in a manner so horribly ap
palling as to cause the death of his own wife.
This case occurred at his own table, and the
victim of his fiendish rage was a woman.—
Taking offense at something the woman did,
or omitted to do, while waiting at the table,
he rose, drew a bowie-knife, and, with a sin
gle blow, ripped her open. His wife swooned,
and when she awoke to consciousness, he - had
cut the negro's heart out, and, with it upon
his knife, he thrust it into her face! She
swooned again, and the result of her horror
and fright brought on convulsions, from the
effects of which she soon died.
The Governor of Mississippi, in this event,
beats the Governor of Ohio in his acts of Ex
Peter Gregory, of Union township, Luezrne
county, was shot by his brother Jacob Greg
ory, on Friday night, April 30, and died in
twenty-four hours. Dogs had been after the
sheep belonging to Jacob, on Thursday night
and on Friday night they returned. Jacob
went out with his loaded gun to watch them.
Soon after Peter, who lived with his brother,
also went out and stood in the road in a stoop
ing position, with a stone to throw at a dog,
which was coming towards him, when Jacob
fired striking Peter in the arm, shattering
the elbow, and penetrating the kidney and
stomach. As Jacob went to the house, sup
posing he bad missed the dog, Peter called
to him, " Jake you have killed me." Jacob's
wife hearing, called for Peter, supposing him
still to be up stairs, and told hint that her
husband had shot sombody. Neither broth
er knew that the other was out. Jacob is
almost wild with grief and regret. His broth

PRINTING-OFFICES.—The Printing-Office has
proved a better college to many a boy, has
graduated more useful and conspicuous mem
bers of society, has brought more intellect
out and turned it into practical, useful chan
nels, awakened more minds, generated more
active and elevated thought, than many of
the literary colleges of the country. A boy
who commences in such a school as the print
ing office, will have his talents and ideas
brought out ; and if he is a careful observer,
experience in his profession will contribute
more toward an education than can be ob
tained in almost any other manner.

PO INVALIDS .—Dr. Hardman,
-Analytical Physician.—Physician for Diseases of the
Lungs, Throat and heart—ForwArly Physician to the
CINCINNATI MARINE IfOSPITAL,
Also to Invalids Retreat, Author of "Letters to Invalids
IS COMING! See followitig Card.
1)11. ITAIIDMAN, Physician for the
disease of the .I . ,niqrsi, (formerly Physician to Cincin
nati Marine Hospital,) will be in attendance at his rooms
as follows :
Huntingdon, Jackson's Hotel, Wednesday, May 23
llolliday - rburg, Exchange Hotel,
Lewistown, iNats- - Ilotel.
Dr. Hardman treats Consumption, Bronchitis, Asthma,
Larryngittis and all diseases of the throat and lungs, by
Medical Inhalation, lately used in the Brunton 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 out of reach of every other means of ad
ministering medicines. The reason that Consumption,
and other diseases of the lungs, have heretofore resisted
all treatment has been bccaus3 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 ullottending 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 degree with the strength, comfort, or
business of the patient.
Other Disrwees Treated.-7n relation to the following dis
eases, either when complicated with lung affections or cX
'sting alone, I also invite consultation, I usually find them
Prolapsus and all other 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, &c.
All diseases of the eye and ear. Neuralgia, Epilepsy,
and all forms of nervous disease.
