For the Season
The following hints for the season, from a
cotemporary, are in season for our readers :
"Everything admonishes us of the return of
winter. Out in the country, the farmers are
clearing up things preparatory to the fall of
snow. The good woman is hurried to death
with the winter clothing, the stewing and
the cooking and the other thousand and one
cares of a farmer's wife. The Children de
light in their new .niittens and discuss their
new school-master, and rise every morning
-with the hopes to see the ground .911 white.—
It is a hard season to the poor, cosy to the
•comfortable, hilarious to the young—but &;--
signed to draw all together in closer bonds,
and to render all wiser, more useful and
more happy. Let us think of a few things,
that the season may not find us unprofitable
First, let us study economy. With the
exception of fuel, our wants in general are
less than at any other time of the year.—
'Appearances'—those terrible creatures—de
mand less of us than in the summer, when
we are visibly before the world, a greater
portion of the time, and the display of na
ture encourages that of human nature.
Secondly, intellectual improvement. To
three-quarters of our people, the long winter
evenings alone afford far more opportunity
for mental acquisition than all the rest of
the year put together. But what shall we
read ? We certainly shall not allow our
selv,es to be caught by that question. Not
but that it is not Pertinent, and suggests it
self to many an earnest mind. But it can
not be answered with any practical force.—
Let - every one thoughtfully, because pro
crastination is especially to be avoided, and
the 2nanncr of reading is often more impor
tant than what is read. We would merely
say, however, that instructive works, such
as require thought and repay it, should form
a part of winter-reading, because the lighter
kinds can usually be taken up at any period.
But we would by no means exclude what is
called "light literature." On the contrary,
books of travel, fiction of real merit, essays,
periodicals and newspapers, ought to be
read by every man who aspires to a well-cul
tivated mind. But even the most fugitive of
these, the newspaper, should be read intelli
gently. The dictionary, the atlas, and other
books of reference, should be constantly in
the hand. The editor's opinions should be
weighed, and neither hastily accepted nor re
jected, because he is or is not on " our side."
The political movements, the commercial
facts, and all the varied events of the passing
age, should be reflected upon as something
more interesting than the thin fictions of the
novelist, and more important than the grave
narratives of the historian. The man who
knows how to read his newspapers, is a "gen
tleman and a scholar," and will take care of
himself in this world.
• Thirdly, charity. We fear we are to have
another hard winter, perhaps of greater se
verity to the poor than was the last. It
therefore becomes all outside of the ill-fated
circle, to have an eye—and by that we mean
a heart and a hand = for the poverty-stricken
around them. Money.may be the least bene
ficial thing that 'can be given them. A word
of kind advice at the right time, a little as
sistance towards saving money 'or getting a
situation, some clothing here, some food there,
a. job given to this and an order for fuel to
to that—may all be much more serviceable
at the time than nioney, and may have far
better moral effects. But cases will trans
pire where the money only will answer,
sometimes to be given in person, and some
times to the noble societies which have or
ganized the dispensation of charity with
the wisdom and effectiveness. These are
matters for every one to determine for him
self.' If he has the will—as we may say,
the good will—the way will not be behind
hand. We only want to intimate that there
is such a thing as reckless charity, and often
that it neither " blesses him - that gives or
him that takes."

CORRESPONDENCE OP THE. GLOBE.
Mn. EDITOR :—For many years Pennsylva
nia was regarded by Educationalists as tardy
in her movements, if not illiberal in her con
tributions to the great causse of intellectual
improvement. However, true this may have
been, she can now boast of a system of Com
mon School education so perfect in its work
ings as to challenge a rival; while Academies
and Seminaries of learning are springing up
throughout the length and breadth of her
Astonishing as the announcement may ap
pear, it is nevertheless true, that, Stone Val

It was my privilege to attend the first ex
amination and exhibition of the " Moores
ville Collegiate Institute" on the 27th and
28th ult., and justice to the teachers, pupils,
and patrons, demands a public notice.
This Institution is delightfully located on
an elevated spot surrounded by forest trees,
in the immediate vicinity of Mooresville, or
Green Tree. It is under the supervision of
Rev. Richard Curran, A. M., assisted by E.
J. Osborne, A. B. The first session of the
school opened under favorable auspices, num
bering between forty and fifty students,
(male and female.) The closing exercises of
the term gave evidence of diligence and pro
gress on the part of the students, and the
high qualifications of the teachers. The at
tendance, during the day-time was quite re
spectable ; at night, the commodions Exhibi
tion Hall was crowded to overfloWing. One
attractive feature of the exercise was the su
perior quality, and unusual amount and va
riety of music.
Mr. Curran's accomplished daughters dis
coursed some excellent and soul-stirring mu
ic, from the piano, while "Harry" Neff, Esq.,
with his melodeon and band of choristers,
likewise added much to the entertainment of
\lr. Curran's superior scholastic attain
ments, n ;:d long experience as a teacher,

of public patronage for the " _Mooresville
It is a fact not generally known, that Stone
Valley, during the past thirteen years, has
sent abroad, for the education of a few (an
elect members as cur Presbyterian friends
would say) of her sons, more money than
would have erected and sustained a first class
Academy at home, during all that time.=
Now, Mr. Editor, would it not have been a
wiser policy to have circulated those funds
at home, and extended to hundreds the ad
v antages realized by afric ?
That the mass of our wealthy citizens, who
have children to raise, may give less attention
to filling thepocktt, and exhibit more zeal in
the cultivation of the intellect and heart is

ze2s-- It is becoming the custom out West,
fur newly married people to send to newspa
per publishers, along with their marriage no
tice, the amount Of a year's subscription.—
This is a very sensible custom. Next to a
good wife or husband, the greatest earthly
blessing is a good newspaper.
A Chicago correspondent of the St. Louis
Republican, writes the following:
"The next Illinois Legislature is a theme,
of much interest just now. Its political com
plexion is well established—eight majority
on join tballot. No earthly doubt is felt hero
concerning the re-election of DoucLAs.,, The
Senate and House will comprise an unusu
al extent and order of talent, the strongest
men of both parties haying naturally come
to the surface from the recent furious storm."
It seems that the late election has done for
the Chicago Triune, the Republican organ.
The same writer says :
"With one or two exceptions, the propri
etors are known to be good livers—and there
was no exception to the general flash char
acter of the paper. "Big Indian, me!" was
written upon the door portals, and labelled up
on every inner department of the large con
cern. Eight proprietors, heads 9f families,
some of them, I am told, apeing the "Mich

to feed from the establishment, besides book
keepers, clerks, foreman, jours and appren
tices ad libitum. The big auger bored
through and the failure is said to be a bad

been holding a prolonged meeting at Concord,
New Hampshire. They number about one
hundred, and have not yet fully decided on
their name, but are inclined to call them
selves the "Orthodox Catholic Church."—
Their creed is said to be as follows : "They
believe in o community of goods. Civil law
they do . not regard, and endeavor, as far as
they are able to separate themselves - from its
influence. Their laws are Bible laws. Hu
man authority is weak, and, consequently,
cannot be perfect. - To avoid acknowledging
the law of the land, they do not intend to
buy any real estate, but in the spring they
will hire farms, where all the brethern and
sisters may live together in peace and har
mony. They hold that; after one has re
cieved the reviving influence of the Holy
Spirit, it is impossible for him not only to
fall from grace, but even to he tempted.—
Absolute perfection. seems to be their expec
tation. AS an offshot of the old Second Ad
ventists, they believe in the speedy coming
of the Savior. The time is riot yet revealed,
but soon will be. - They intend that, when lie
'comes, he shall find his church ready
and waiting, apart, by theniSelves. They
respect the marriage covenant. Three apos
tles, who are to have charge of their affairs,
have been chosen."

Grand Celebration of the Centennial An
niversary of the Evacuation of Fort
[From the Pittsburgh Morning Post, Nov. 26.]
The twenty-fifth of November, the one hun
dredth anniversary of the occupation of Fort
Duquesne by British and Colonial arms under
General Forbes, was duly celebrated by our
It is not necessary for us again to reiterate
the historical occurrence of the period imme
diately proceeding the evacuation of the fort
by the French forces about the 25th of No
vember, 1758, which was, in fact, the surren
der of all claim on the part of France to the
rich and fertile valley of the Ohio. Brad
dock's defeat, in 1755 ; the change of affairs
upon the accession of the Earl of Chatham to
the head of the British Ministry, in 1757;
the organization of the three expeditions
against Louisburg, Ticonderoga, and Crown
Point, and Fort Ifuquesne, and the success of
the English and Colonial arms here, are mat
ters of written history.
To us a peculiar interest necessarily at
taches to the latter event. The Father of
his country took part in the military expedi
tion here. The success of the mother coun
try was at that time our own success. - ale
occupation of the dismantled and burning
fort was the birth day of our city. At that
time it received its baptismal of Pittsburgh,
in honor of the great statesman under whose
auspices the campaign, which resulted in es
tablishing Angle-Saxon supremacy in the
West, was instituted.
A hundred years have passed since these
events occurred, and a great and flourishing
commercial city has grown up around the
spot where the old fort stood. The astonish
ing growth of our Western cities is a frequent
subject of wonder. The contrast between
Pittsburgh now and Pittsburgh a hundred
years ago is a most remarkable one. The
small frontier settlement is now a noble city,
in the enjoyment of all the arts of peace, and
the applioances of wealth, of civilization, and
We are proud of our Iron City. With all
the dirt and smoke which surrounds us, her
habitations are filled with true and noble
hearts—her mills, her factories; and work
shops arc wrought by the hands of strong
and honest labor, an intelligent and ChrAan
people worship the Great God who has given
us these blessings in a, hundred temples ded
icated in his name: and around us and in our
midst on every side are seen and felt, and
enjoyed, the gifts of a bountiful Providence
and of human progress.
In a hundred years monuments of civiliza
tion have been reared up which will increase
the happiness of those who shall come after
us a hundred fold beyond our forefath
ers enjoyed, or we now enjoy.
There is a fitness and propriety in the,-cel
ebration of the first day in the history of
such a city, and the proceedings on Thurs

It neither rained nor snowed nor froze, but
the weather was a threatening comening,ling
of all varieties of unpleasantness. But, in
spite of the weather and the mud, the people
turned out - in thousands upon'thousands';and
at an early hour in the morning the streets
were thronged by delegations of workmen,
societies, and citizens; headed by the military
and accompanied by bands of music. Ap
propriate banners, with suggestive mottoes,
were borne aloft, and the residences and
places of business of many of our citizens were
gaily decorated with flags, banners, and em

During the day there was much that was
note-worthy to observe, but on such an occa
sion reporters are compelled to "write as they
run," and many interesting facts will inevi
tably escape notice. The arrangements made
by the various committees were very happily
carried out, and following we give a detailed
account of the proceedings of tile day.
At nine o'clock in the morning the streets
presented a very animated appearances. On
every avenue delegation were assembling un
der the directions of the chief marshal, pre
paratory to taking their places in the c•r•-
lcg'. It was expected that the immense mass
would be ready to move as early as nine
o'clock, but various delays were experienced
in getting the delegations to their proper
places, and it was fully eleven o'clock before
they started'. The procession was two miles
long, and occupied two hours in passing a
given point. The number in the ranks was
variously estimated at from five thousand to
eight thousand, the first being nearest the
actual number. The number of persons
along the line of the procession, on the side
walks, could not have been less than 25,000.
At every available point where the procession
was to pass, deuce crowds had collected, and
whenever there was a.balcony or a window,
a group of ladies might be seen, awaiting pa
tiently the passing of the pageant—the fair
ones seemingly as little affected by the chilly
atmosphere as their more stalwart lords.—
Every one seemed happy and in excellent
spirits, and, notwithstanding the unfavorable
weather and lowering skies, the display was
an eminent success, reflecting credit upon
those who originated and executed the plan.
The procession passed over the prescribed
route, at one o'clock returned to the Du
quesne depot, which had been prepared for
the oration and other exercises.
Around the stand, which.was erected about
midways of the building, were gathered wo
men and• men in thousands.. A sea of human
faces was spread out before the speakers.—
The great extent of the building, and the
sounding clang of many footsteps upon the
platforms, rendered it impossible fur human
voices to be heard at a distance greater than
a few feet from where the speaker stood.
The officers of the day, a number of dis
tinguished strangers, and invited guests took
their position upon the stand.
The vast assemblage cheered, and then lis
tened with eager silence, as the silvered head
of the venerable president of the day, lion.
William Wilkins, rose -before their view.—
More than three-fourths of the events of the
century which has passed since the surrender
of Fort Duquesne, have been contemporane
ous with his life time. Before him stood
hundreds whom he- had known in childhood,
in youth, in manhood—nay, even in the au
tumn of their days, for around him we ob
served many. whose heads were like his own—
silvered with honorable years. What mem
ories of the past must thrill through the patri
archs of the land on days like this I What
present pleasure to the hearts of such men
as Judge Wilkins, General Markle, and Dr.
Herron, to regard, as they did that day the
succets and happiness of a generation of peo
ple, who look upon them with the respectful
veneration of children to a father I
In a few brief and appropriate remarks,
Judge Wilkins referred to the complete suc
cess of the celebration, and spoke in brief
but eloquent terms of the occasion which had
brought together in our city so large an as
semblage of people.
A short and eloquent prayer was then ad
dressed to the great Father of all by the ven
erable Dr. Francis Herron, of the First Pres
byterian church, one of the the oldest clergy
man in the West.
Judge Wilkins then introduced the Hon.
Andrew W. Loomis, the orator of the day.—
Mr. Loomis occupied about forty-five minutes
in the delivery of his address. Those who
were so fortunate as to be located near the
speaker to hear what he said, speak of his
oration as a most masterly and eloquent effort.
We greatly regretted that Governor Packer
could not have been present at the celebra
tion of the hundredth birth-day of the second
city in the State, the governmental affairs of
which he so wisely directs.
Letters were read from Senator Douglas,
Governor Packer, and others, which wo re

Babes In the Woods
A correspondent of the Concord (N. II.)
Congregational Journal, writing from Stew
artstown, N. IL, states that on the 26th of
October, John Brown, 7 r., 13 years old, ac
companied by Wm. Brown, a lad of nine
years, was sent into the woods at Hereford,
Canada, by the father of the first lad, who
had just removed thither from Colebroak,N.
11., to gather a basket of moss, with which
to stop the crevices between the logs of their
new house. Night came, but the boys did.
not return. Until morning, the parents
passed the night in unavailing search. Next
clay, from fifty to one hundred men from the
neighborinr , towns, roamed the' woods until
night, with no better success. Two cold
nights had passed, and no tidings of the lost
ones had reached the anxious parents.—
Thursday morning, an increased number re
sumed the search, and continued it during
the day, with no better success. Friday and
Saturday were spent in the same manner.—
On Sunday, a fresh start was taken, which
resulted in the discovery of the children.—
The elder lad, on perceiving their approach,
started up from the side of the other and
made an attempt to run. On being told to
stop, for they would catch him, he obeyed,
saying, "Don't hurt me, I have been in the
woods all night." The younger was sleeping
at the root of a small tree, with one arm
around it ; his arm was stiff and cold, and it
was with difficulty and caution that it could
be straightened so as to unloose his hold.—
The hand was black, and so were' the feet,
and the latter so swollen that the boots had
to be cut before they could be stripped
The boys were found only about two and a
half miles from the house of Mr. Brown.—
They seemed not to'be aware that they had
been out more than one night, and were
probably , partially deranged after the first
night. They had eaten nothing during the
whole five days.
Fighting with a Bear in the Water.
; passerzers by the Port Huron boats, de
scribe il2e of a large bear in the neigh
borhood of that &ace, a day or two since, in
a peculiar mar.'ner. A man - who lives on
the river, early in the morning, and on the
way across, discovered a largo bear, who
was engaged in the same mn:.`110 1 1 as himself,
viz: endeavoring to gain her ;la,iesty's do
minions. He immediately made fur the ani
mal, and being able to make better 'headway
through the water, soon overtook him, and
struck him on the head with one of his oars,
having no other weapon. The bear turned
on him, and with the utmost coolness, com
menced climbing into the boat, the man in
the meantime belaboring his skull with the
oar,,with all his might. The assailing party
by this time found that he had caught a Tar
tar, and that he was likely to become the
captured party himself. This apprehension
was rendered nearly a certainty by the cap
sizing of the boat, just as his bearship had
nearly loaded himself into it. The man,
now thoroughly frightened, found him
self in the water, clinging to one side of the
boat, with the bear looking at him over the
inverted bottom, from the other side. He
then made a desperate effort, righted the
boat, ducked the bear, and. got in again ;
but was no sooner ' aboard, than the bear
made another rush at him, and upset the
boat again. A lively scene of flounderings
followed, which was fast bringing matters to
a crisis, when the battle was ended by the
arrival of another man in a boat, who had
witnessed the fight from the shore, and come
off to the assistance of the first adventUrer.
He split the bear's head open with an axe,
killing him instantly. The animal weighed
over 400 pounds. —Detroit Free Press.
CHILD BURNED TO DEATH !-A most dis
tressing occurrence took place at Conemaugh
Station about four o'clock on Wednesday
eveninglith ult. A little girl of three years,
daughter of Mr. Henry Ketury, was playing
about the stove, when, at a moment when its
mother was temporarily absent, its clothes
took fire, as is supposed, from a lighted sha
ving. Ina moment the child was enveloped
in flames, and before its cries could reach the
mother, they had • burned and charred in a
horrible manner its body, arms and face, and
even its eyes and the inside of its mouth.—
The mother assisted by a neighbor, put out
the fire as quickly as the means at their com
mand would permit, but in so doing burned
their own hands and arms considerably.—
Drs. Bramwell and Yeagley were immediate
ly summoned to the bed-side of the little suf
ferer, but all their efforts to save its life were
fruitless. It died during the night, after suf
fering the most excruciating agony. It is a
heart-sickening cam—Johnstown, Tribune.
COUNTERFEITS ON THE BANK - OF CHAMBERS
EURG.—ParticuIar,, care should be taken to
avoid counterfeit 4.;10 notes on the Bank of
Chanibersburg. The plate of the counterfeit
cannot be distinguished from the genuine,
especially by persons who are not very ex
pert in such matters. The paper of the
counterfeit is white and the impression pale.
The bills of the genuine and counterfeit are
not of the same size, but as it may be incon
venient to institute such a comparison, the
better way to detect the spurious, is to ob
serve the spelling of the President's name—
on the genuine, the President's name is
spelled Jos. Culbertson, in the spurious it is
spelled Culbertson.' Across the X and 10
on the corners, there is one dark line in the
counterfeit, while in the genuine, there are
two lines at equal distances from the centre.
This is a good way of detecting them, but
we advise that an eye be kept to the spelling
of the President's name.—llitrrisburg Union.
Frightful Calamity—Two Boys Fall to
the Bottom of a Well and are Killed.
A shocking calamity occured at Norwalk,
yesterday noon, the particulars of which
have been furnished us by Mr. Rust, engi
neer on the Cleveland and Toledo Railroad.
A few weeks since, Mr. McKinley, a machi
nist, and his two sons, Charles and George,
dug, a well near their house, to the depth of
fifty-seven feet. The well was about eighteen
inches in diameter at the top, and three feet
at the bottom. Yesterday they commenced
erecting a curb around the well. The wind
lass which had been used for drawing up
dirt, was still standing over it, and by some
means the bucket attached to the windlass
rope, became unfastened and fell to the bot
tom. One of the boys put his feet in the
iron hook at the end of the rope, and went
down to recover the bucket, the other hold
ing the windlass the while. When some ten
feet on his way down, the boy slipped from
the rope and fell to the bottom of the well.
Mr. McKinley, wild with horror, put his
other son upon the rope, and bade him go
down and save his brother. The boy attemp
ted to do so, but lost his hold when some
twelve feet down, and fell to the bottom, as
his brother had before him. A light was
lowered into the well to enable those above
(there was a large crowd congregated) to see
the unfortunate lads, but the air was so foul
that the light instantly went out.
A large number of men worked all yester
day afternoon to recover the bodieS of the
boys. They were raised several times to
within eight or ten feet of the top, but the
opening was so extremely small that they
could not be pulled out, and fell violently
back to the bottom. It was proposed to dig
the well out to-day.
The boys were aged seventeen and four
teen years respectively, and are described as
smart and worthy boys.,
By special private despatch from Norwalk,
we learn that the bodies were recovered at
twelve o'clock last night. Physicians state
that the boys must have died from the foul
air in the well rather than from their fall.—
Mr. McKinley is nearly insane with grief.—
The bodies had fallen and been pulled nearly
up so many times, that they were terribly
mutilated when eventually recovered.— Cleve
