MerrtaxEss.—There seems to be a very
poor conception at the present day, of what
. be styled manliness of character. To
see this truth illustrated, we have only got
to look out of our own windows—take a
walk upon our own streets—or visit our pub
lic meetings and places of. Divine worship.
The boy, of twelve or fourteen is now a man,
or at least, be thinks he . is. He sticks a
plug of tobacco in his mouth, or a cigar out
of it, and struts the streets with as many
airs as those who are twice his age. And as
if this were not enough, the little urchin is
heard to utter the most profane oaths, and
indulge in the most filthy and obscene lan
guage. And we suppose that if inquiries
were instituted, it would be found, that this
same class off "hopefuls" might be found
with flasks_ in their pockets, taking their in
troductory steps in the downward road of
drunkenness and ruin. Anti this is all re
garded as a part of manliness. "This is the
way men do," says. Young America, " and
we must be men, too." But how much mis
taken I Is it necessary, in order to grow up
men, that we must begin by running the
streets at night, when we should be at home,
reading our books and improving our minds?
Is it a part of manliness to first learn to curse
and swear, and use filthy words ? Do these
things make boys, men? Is that man pos
sessed of true manliness, who is seen stagger
ing from side to side on . our public walks,
and' occasionally tumbling into our gutters?
Surely, such an one is no man. This is not
'manliness. Such conduct is unmanly, if not
a great deal worse ; and we are unwilling to
connect the idea of manhood with any such
doings. : •
,our boys, then, remember that to 'be
men, it is not necessary first, to learn to
smoke " cigars, chew tobacco, swear great
oaths, misbehave in church or school, and
get drunk I But to be a man, it is necessary
that we should strive': to cultivate the true
feelizzgs of manhood. This we may do, by
improving our minds by reading and study ;
cultiVating good manners by imitating the
wise and good, : and by associating with such.
This is the way to be Men.
A CIIAL LE NG E.-Ilfr
formed that certain persons are just now
doing me great injustice. It is not true that
I have been "stumped" by any mathematical
question sent me by any person whatever.—
It is not true that I hare reftnedcto work any
question, provided the curious ones who sent
it, were willinglo pay me for my time—l do
not find it very profitable working fur nothing.
I am somewhat proud of my mathematical
attainments, and to those who wiSh to know
how much I am capable of doing, I will
make the following proposition :
I will give the demonstration or solution
of any question, problem, or proposition, in
Arithmetic, Mensuration, Algebra, Geometry,
Trigonometry, Surveying, etc., and involving
the principles of Philosophy, Astronomy,
Geography, :or Geology—provided that each
question Sent me, be accompanied by $25. If
the question, problem, or proposition, be ex
ceedingly difficult; there may be an additional
charge. I would like very much, in these
hard times, to make a little money in this
way—please. send in your order.

LIND SLIDE.—On Wednesday night last,
. o'clock, a part of the stone
quarry, just below town, and on the line of
the Pennsylvania Railroad, gave way with a
terrible crash, carrying with it everything
in its way, completely demolishing three or
four cars standing on the siding, loaded with
coal, and covering up the track for several
rods. No one was near the place at the time
it fell, but the watchman, who was passing
along, and who was immediately under the
embankment, but; fortunately, escaped with
out injury; and as the train from the west
wasdue at 11.50, he signalled them of their
danger, thus preventing what might. have
been : a most appalling accident. The fast
lines due at 11.50 P. M. and 12 M., changed
passengers and baggage at the slide, and
backed to the places from which they started.
The Railroad Company had a gang of work-
Men promptly.on the spot, and at half past
seven, Thursday morning, they bad the track
clear, causing a delay of only a few minutes
to the Express train:from the east, due at
7.11 A. M.
THE BONES or A MAN FOUND.—On Wednes
day the 22d inst., the bones of a man was
found on Terris mountain, by Mr. John. Hef
ner. From the appearance of the bones, and
a peddler's small wooden box close by, it was
supposed they had been lying there undis
turbed for five or six years. There was
nothing in it but a match box and a few shirt
buttons. The bones were lying between two
trees, the full length of a man of six feet, and
some fifty yards off the road leading to Cass
vine, distant from this place about seven
-miles. There are strong suspicions in the
.neighborhood that the man was dealt foully
•Music.—By reference to an advertisement
in another column, it will be seen that Prof.

intends to permanently locate in this place.

TIIAT ExurniTlON.—On Friday nighirlast,
as , was announced, the. Standing-Stone Liter
ary Association gave .n exhibition, which,
we are pleased to say, did credit to those
who participated in the exercises. We were
very agreeably surprised at the vast amount
of intellect displayed on this occasion.—
Every one deserve great praise for their ef
forts, and as we anticipated, the whole thing
came off with great eclat. The orations were
exCellent pieces of composition, and well de
livered. The debate was handled with mark
ed ability on both sides. The essa . V. on
"Health," was a masterly production, and
the author should extend his 'efforts still fur
ther. The "Literary Casket," edited by one
of the members, , shows tact and ability.
We think they could not have selected a
more competent person. A choir of vocal
music enlivened the exercises, which, in our
opinion, was hard to beat. They also de
serve the praise of the community.. All in
in all, the whole was a grand affair. After
the exercises were concluded, a vote of
thanks was unanimously agreed to by the
PRESENTS.-Mr. C. Schneider has our
thanks for the fine beef steak he left with us
for our Christmas breakfast. It was fine and
Our friend, 11. Roman, presented us - with
a large can of fine Oysters, which took the
place of the turkey We had'nt, for our Christ
mas dinner. He will please accept our
thanks for the hand Some present.
Mr. A. Lewis and lady, of the Mt. Union
Hotel, will accept I our thanks for the large
cake, &c., sent us the morning after the so
cial party given by them. We understand
that Mr. L. did not dispose of his Hotel—and
we . are pleased to learn that he intends to
continue as landlord, and will be pleased to
render satisfaction to all who may favor him
with a call.
•On Sunday evening last, the Rev. 0.
0. McLean preached his farewell sermon in
the Presbyterian Church of this place. The
sermon was directed more particularly to the
young men of our borough, and contained
some very seasonable advice, and if heard
and heeded by all of them, there would be
less drunkenness and. rowdyism on our streets
after nightfall. The young men would then
find more time to engage themselves at home
.reading some good and useful book.
Christmas passed off with but very
few incidents worth chronicling. Drunken
ness seemed to be the order of the day. The
wily thing that transpired worthy of note,
was a surprise party, gotten up by some of
our young people, and which came off at the
~11otel, now kept by Col. T. K.
Simonton. Everything passed off pleasantly
and to the entire satisfaction •of every one
present, not excepting the Col. and his esti
A NEW PArErt.—A new Democratic paper,
the Pennsylvania Slate .Sentinel, has been es
tablished at Harrisburg. It is a large and
well-executed sheet, and ably edited by C.
D. Hineline, Esq. It is an independent pa
per, repudiating the new platform nianufac
tured by President Buchanan, Bigler, Black
& Co., for the Democracy of Pennsylvania.
It defends the platform of the last Demo
cratic National Convention, and leans warmly
towards Hon. S. A. Douglas.
OUR NEW BusucEss.--.We have had our
Book and Stationery Store open but two short
weeks, and the patronage of the public gen
erally has been so unexpectedly liberal, that
we cannot avoid returning
We shall use every honorable means to merit
a continuance of favors.
,ssrAlr. Jon. Focht, colperter of the Amer
ican Tract Society, after a three weeks stay
in this place, returned home last week.—
While here he visited 380 families, including
those of Smithfield, and sold books to the
amount of $107.00. He was kindly received,
and tenders his thanks. . ,
CnANGEs.We learn that Sheriff Zeigler
retires from the Jackson Hotel in the Spring,
and that Mr. John S. Miller, of the Franklin,
takes the House. Col. Wm. Williams goes
into the Franklin, and Mr. Christian Couts
takes the Farmers Home.

the young sold at Lewis' on and before Christ

GOOD TIMES COMING—as an evidence, the
Carrier of the "Globe" his concluded to ad

is hoped, will keep to the right and left.

DALLEY'S MAGICAL PAIN EX
TRACTOR.- In all diseases, inflammation, more or
less, predominates—now, to allay inflammation, strikes at
the root of disease—hence an immediate core.
PALLEY'S MAGICAL PAIN EXTRACTOR
and NOTHING ELSE, will allay inflammation at once, and
make a certain cure.
DALLEY'S MAGICAL PAIN EXTRACTOR
.will cure the following among a great catalogue of dis
cues :—Burns, Scalds, Cuts, Chafes, Sore Nipples, Corns,
Bunions, Bruises, Strains, Bites. Poison, Chilblains, Biles,
Scrofula. Ulcers, Fever Sores, Felons, Ear Ache, Piles, Sore
Eyes, Gout. Swellings, Rheumatism, Scald Head, Salt
Rheum Baldness, Erysipelas, Ringworm, Barber's Itch,
Small Pox, Measles, Rash, &c., &c.
To some, it may appear incredulous that so many dis
eases should be reached by one article ; such an idea will
vanish when reflection points to the fact, that the salve
is a combination of ingredients, each and every one apply
ing a perfect antidote to its apposite disorder.
DAILEY'S MAGICAL PAIN EXTRACTOR
in its effects is magical, because the time is so short be
tween disease and a permanent cure ; and it is an extractor,
as it draws all disease out of the affected part, leaving na
tore as perfect as before the injury. It is scarcely neces
sary to say that no house, work-shop, or manufactory
should be one moment without it.
No Pain Extractor is genuine, unless the box has upon
it a steel plate engraving, kith the name of Henry Dailey,
