Huntingdon, Wednesday, Feb. 2g, 1859
TuE WEATITER.-All of last week, the
;weather was dark, cloudy and rainy. Now
a ray from old Sol, then a sprinkle. from
those dark, heavy clouds which overhang
the earth during the winter time. On Sun
day last, the weather changed from a soft
and mild Spring-like day, to one of cold and
blustering winter ; the wind blowing almost
a tornado, and flukes of snow flying hither
and yon, making a red-hot stove quite an
agreeable companion. We predict some
Tough weather yet, before Spring opens.
colored meeting which is going on in this
place, the minister remarked the other even
ing, that " all the white people knew, they
had borrowed from the blacks, and that in
twenty years hence, the colored people were
going to take it back, and leave the whites
in total ignorance."
Pretty strong language, that. We were
not aware before, that we owe our intelli
gence and learning to the black race. All
we have to say, is, (if such is the case,) that
in twenty years from this date, the whites
will be so intelligent, that they will not need
what it is alleged they have borrowed, and
have been requested by several persons, to
give a correct statement of the ease heard be
fore Esq. Snare, on Wednesday last. We
have come to the conclusion to suppress the
names of the parties, and merely give the of
fence and the judgement of the Justice.—
Suit was brought by a congregation worship
ping at McConnellstown, against an individ
ual of another Church, for disturbing their
worship, by addressing their preacher in an
insulting manner during his discourse, which
the evidence proved was general. Preaching
was suspended for a few minutes, during
which time the defendant retired front the
church. The individual having refused to
apologize to the congregation us publicly as
he had insulted their preacher. the Congre
gation brought suit against him for disturb
ing their worship, and Justice Snare, after
hearing the evidence en both sides, read the
law, "and gave his opinion in a clear and able
manner, and required the delentiaot to pay
fine of $lO and costs of prosecution.
A friend has handed us the foltovvin,
" komplante," in regard to taking''skawl
liri babees," to church, for us to publish, and
as it comes up to our views of the matter, we
give it verbatim et literatint. Here it is:

Ynnrn Religuslee,
Xt.-- - Z-lire take the following notice from an
exchange, of Dan Groover, the unmitigated
scoundrel who figured so conspicuously in
this place, some time since, and who borrow
ed money of every person green enough to
lend it to him, and then sloped. It will lie
seen that he has been arrested in Baltimore:
" Iv LIKBO.--Dan Groover, a young man,
who formerly resided in this place, and lately
traveling through the country, playing Jeremy
Diddler, by borrowing sums of money from
every person he could, has at last been
brought to a halt, and placed in one of the
police station houes in Baltimore, to await
trial for swindling. Groover has been doing
the amiable to our Baltimore cousins, as
well as to those on the North and West
Branch rivers. Persons residing in the little
town of Milton, suffered some through Dan's
peculiar financiering abilities. Dan is deci
dedly a fast young man, and unless he should
turn his talents to better account, we should
not he surprised to hear of his incarceration
within the walls of some penitentiary."—

STRAY Tuovonrs.—Often, often, as persons
sit musing over scenes gone by, are they
made glad by such thoughts, but alas, how
often are others made to mourn, Perhaps
over the departure of some near and dear
friend, or perchance, a wife, a husband, a
child, or a sister or a brother. Then again,
there are those who never allow their thoughts
to d ;veil upon solemn hours because it saddens
their 'hearts, and very often is the means of de
priving them of their reason. Others again
dwell upon scenes of their childhood, pleas
ant scenes, and mourn because they have ar
rived at a more mature age, and are deprived
of childhood sports ; or at an age when the
world calls on them to act their part in life's
drama, with those of their years. Fur our
part, we Icce to dwell on childhood sports,
and not reluctant in bestowing a passing
thought on some loved and dear one, who has
passed from this earth to that realm above,
where sorrow and pain cannot reach them.
We, love to dwell upon the thought of some
school-mate, who has been called to leave
this world to join the angels around the
throne of mercy. We delight to muse over
boyhood scenes, such as are marked down in
the life and history of almost every youth ;
and as we pass along the streets, every day is
our attention directed to the boys amusing
themselves at some trick or play, which re
nmiicd• us that we were once a boy, and enac
ted the same scene which we have just no
ticed. Such is life, and thus may it ever be.

SuADE-G' Ar, Feb. 10, 1859
LEWIS :-My former letter closed with
' a few allusions to Black-Log valley. From
thence I made my way to the upper end of
Tuscarora; and down the mountain-foot for
miles, finding but few objects of material in
terest, until my "highland Mary" welcomed
me to dine under the roof of her aged parents.
Parson Gray, well known to a large circle of
friends,and whose days are in the sear:and yel
low leaf, gave me his usual hearty welcome.
The old man was reclining on his easy couch,
and when I entered, he. seemed like an aged
patriarch, preparing to go to his long resting
place. But on hearing my name announced,
he aroused and presented his nervous hand ;
though it still retains vigor enough to remind
one of the peculiar grasp of his countrymen,
rendered more affectionate by a long minis
terial life. His mind retains an unusual ac
tivity and vi ;or, changed only in a relief from
earthly cares and a closer attachment to
house,the abode of the pure affections. There
is a pleasure in the conversation of those who
entertaian none of the animosity so prolific
in Our day, who look above and beyond the
petty jealousies, turmoils and envyings of a
selfish world ; and live in faith, hope and
charity, not that they may be honored amen,
but that they may have its own real enjoy
ment and its future promises.
Still down this valley, in my course, I
found rural life in various forms, some staring,
stern necessity in the face, and now and then
thrift and opulence turning a deaf ear to it.
A common error here is, that the people are
trying to cultivate lands which should re_
main in a wilderness. If only the reasona
bly productive portions were tilled and the
barren hill-sides were valued only for their
timber, the whole would sustain as Large
population as other-wise. Wheat and &el:-
wheat are scarce, from a partial failure of
last year's crop ; and it is estimated by some
that Tell township will import 150 barrels of
flour this season. Shingles are made and
hauled to Cumberland in exchange for flour.
Five teams were sent on that mission the day
that I entered the valley. The saw-mills are
doing a fine business, and occasionally the
porch, or the kitchen has been converted into
a convenient shop, for the manufacture of
shingles. The people here seem to enjoy I
themselves about as well as elsewhere. Tell 1
township embraces a district, say 30 or 35
square miles between Shade and Tuscarora
mountains and has no vo.q-cylice.
Since my arrival in this village, we have'
had two evening lectures in the Academy
hail, one on the "Mechanism of the Earth,
and the other on the subject, "We all see
with different eyes." The same lecturer
promises another lecture on the subject, "The
pleasures of thinking." The lecture on the
subject, "We all see with different eves," ap
peared to me, to have philosophy and reason
for its basis,' and I have heard some others
speak well of it. A full house—an intelli
gent audience was in attendance. I was
pleased to make the acquaintance of the
Principal of this Academy and his excellent
Lady, and. also the interesting students that
cluster around them fur instruction and. ad
vice. The junior students, sitting at the
head of the dining-hall and receiving tho se
kind attentions win look upon them in future
years, with sacred recollections.
From here I intend to go to Springfield, and
will give you aiew more dashes at familiar
life on the Aughwiek
Affairs in Utah.

CAMP FLOYD, U. T., January sth, IS•30
The people of the United States are led to
believe that by maintaining a large and ex
pensive military force in the midst of these
religious fanatics they effectually disarm the
arch imposter of that cruel tyranny he has
practiced upon his deluded followers, and
thereby established the power of a civil tri
bunal, which Mormon and Gentile shall alike
be forced to respect. With this view, they
are taxed for the support of an army of three
thousand men, located thirteen hundred miles
from the nearest available depot, when in re
ality, they, by means of This very military
force, are - fostering the Mormon Church, end
feeding and clothing the naked and hungry
dupes of a misguided fanatic. This is no idle
tale, but a proposition which can easily be
Now as far as the political power, which the
army exerts here is concerned, it is well
known throughout the whole of this country,
populated by these Latter Day Saints, the
influence of Brigham Young has not in the
least abated, and that his midnight warrants
are executed upon those, whom policy upon
his part, and a strong desire for their future
glory, induce him to hand over to his merci
ful Danites. Three mouths have not elapsed
since a Mormon sought protection in a milita
ry camp on Spanish Fork, from the knife of
the assassin, who under cover of "secret or
ders," was only waiting an opportunity to
deal the fatal blow, and it is not uncommon
to hear of the sudden disappearance of men
and women in all parts of this singular com
munity. The mangled body and open throat
of the poor deaf and dumb boy of Salt Lake
City is but one of many such sights as have
met the eye here before, and indeed all back
sliders from the Church are required by rev
elation to be taken where their cries cannot
Le heard, and disposed of in sueh a manner
as shall benefit their souls. Their bodies are
placed along the public highway as warnings
to the lukewarm in the faith.
When the army enteral the valley of Salt
Lake, with the exception of a very few at the
head of the Church, the followers of Brigham
were in a state of abject poverty, and it was
with difficulty that they could procure neces-
sary clothing, with the savings of their daily
labor. This state of allhirs will not be won
dered at when we consider the numerous re
sponsibilities resting upon the - Saintly hus
band and father—one-tenth of whose labor
and funds are required in the treasury of the
Lord. The advent of the army was a God
send to these paupers, and the establishment
of Camp Floyd, furnishing a market for the
products of their labor, has filled their pockets
with Uncle Sam's gold. The attention of the
people of this Territory is signally called to
this fact in the Governor's late message,
where the Mormons are informed, that as
long as they continue disloyal, the troops will
be kept here, and of course their living de
pends on their disloyally. These people will
therefore continue to thrive as long as this
farce is played in Utah.
'Tis thus that the people of the United
States are building up, by daily contributions,
this odious theocracy—this festering sore
upon our country. Brigham Young has
brought the army here for this purpose, and
Tie will keep it here, if he can. He has out
generalcd all the ()Teat leaders of the day.

These Machines sew from two spools, as purchased from
the store, requiring no re-winding of thread; they Heat,
Fell, Gather, and Stitch in a superior style, finishing each
seam by their own operation, without recourse to the
hand-needle, as is required by other machines. They will
do better and cheaper sewing than a seamstress can, even
if she works for one cent an hour, and aro, unquestionably,
the best Machines in the market for family sowing, on ;Lc
count of their simplicity, durability, ease of management,
and adaptation to all varieties of family sewing—executing
either heavy or fine work with cymil facility, and without
special adjustment.

Extract of a letter from Tito% R. LEAVITT, Esq.. an
American gentleman, now resident in Sydney, New South
Wales. dated January 12, 185 S:
".1 had a lent made in Melbourne, in 1353, in which
there were over three thousand yards of sewing done with
one of Grover & Baker's Machines. and a single seam of that
has wastood all the double seams sewed by sailors with a
needle and twine."
"If limner could be called up from his murky Mules, he
would sing the advent of Grover Baker its a mere be
nignant miracle of art than was ever 'Vulcan's smithy.
Ile \vont(' denounce midnight shirt-making as 'the direful
spring of Woes nnnumbered.'"--.Prof. North.
"I take pleasure in saying. that the Grover & Baker
Sewing Machines have more than sustained my expecta
tion. After trying and returning others, 1 have three of
them in operation in my different places, and, after four
years' trial, have no fault to find."'—,T. 11. Hammond, Sen

day in commemoration of their good deeds for humanity."
--Cassius-11. Clay.

can be adapted from the finest cambric to the heaviest cas
simere. It sews stronger, faster, and more beautifully
than one can imagine. If mine could not be replaced,
money could not buy G.Brown, Tenn.
