THE YOUNG AMERICAN LANCERS.—We are
pleased to learn that some fifteen or twenty
of our boys, between the ages of twelve and
eighteen, are preparing to have a good time
on the Fourth. They have organized a com
pany of the above caption, and are now be
ing drilled by Corporael Stewart, who knows
how to do it, as he served a long time in Un
cle Sam's army. They 'purpose drilling and
parading on horseback, on the Fourth of Ju
ly. Their dress will consist of black pants,
with red stripes, white shirt, trimmed with
blue, a belt around the waist, and glazed caps.
In our opinion we think the dress the most
suitable one they could have selected, and
will look very pretty. They will carry a lance
in the right hand, resting on the right foot.
We like to see such a, spirit manifested amongst
our boys, and we hope they will not let it fall
through, but come out on the Fourth, array
ed in all the splendor of American soldiers.
Put them through, Joe.
See. We notice in many of our exchan
ges, an item taken from' the Huntingdon
Journal, which, if believed, will have the ef
fect of greatly injuring the travel on the
Broad Top Railroad. The item states that
a 'locomotive got off the track, while on the
high bridge at Stonerstown. We are as
sured by persons who should know, that there
never has been a locomotive off the track,
either on the bridges or trestle work of the
road, and that it is just as safe to travel over
this road as any other in the State. Every
part of the road is now in the very best order
for safe travel, and we are gratified to learn,
that the travel has greatly increased the pres
HOPE THEY HAD A GOOD TlME.—While up
the country on Thursday last, we noticed a par
ty of some fifteen young ladies on a " bust."
They were received on the morning train at
Spruce Creek, and landed at Tyrone, where
they put in the day—can't say how they be
haved there. At a late hour in the evening,
they were again received in the cars and
safely returned to their starting point. A
livelier party we never saw, and we hope they
had a good time generally. If we were
" out of the harness," we might be permitted
to say, that we did not believe there could be
as many pretty girls scared up in that neigh
Tau CEMETERY.—During our perambula
tions on Saturday last, we strolled up the hill
to the Cemetery, and were surprised at the
amount of care being ttricen of that sacred
place, by our borough fathers. It is really a
beautiful place, and we love to visit such pla
ces sometimes, although it brings 'back to
one's mind the memory of some loved and
dear one, who has been lain there to await
the sounding of Gabriel's trumpet, to sum
mon- them to the bar of God. After wander
ing around for some time, reading the inscrip
tions carved on the marble slabs, we wended
our way homeward, thinking to ourself how
sweet is life, and how sad a thing it is to die.
To CORRESPONDENTS.—AImost every week,
we receive communications from different
parts of the county, but in nine cases out of
ten, too late for publication. We would here
mention the fact to those who wish to corres
pond for our paper, that they must mail their
letters, so that we will get them on the Sat_
urday previous to our publication day, and
written on, only one side of the sheet, and ac
companied by the author's real name. Our
correspondents will please bear this in mind.
Star On Saturday evening last, a fellow
having iao fear of the law, or of breaking the
necks of pedestrians passing along the streets,
drove at break-neck speed up and down Hill
street, in a one-horse dearborn. This is an
other nuisance that is not. tolerated in any
other town but ours, and should be stopped

colored man living near Mill Creek, was kil

A CURIOSITY.—We have in our possession
an old " shinplaster," printed in 1772, pre
sented to us by Mr. Jacob Goodman. It reads

MR. EDITOR:—TeII it not in Gath, pro

I, the inimitable of all inimitables, did re
ceive on Thursday last, from Miss M., of Pe
tersburg, the prettiest, the loveliest, the dear
est, the sweetest smelling, and altogether,
the most charming Bouquet that has ever fell
into the hands of a poor reporter like me.—
It came down in the nine o'clock train, and
was handed me by a friend, who is not the
author of my letters, but is a candidate for
County Treasurer. I am not acquainted
with the lady myself, but my friend is. So
you see, Mr. Editor, that I am in a quandary,
as to how to go about expressing my thank
fulness to the lady, for her kind remembrance
of we poor creatures, who have to rack our
brains to enlighten the people, who look to
us for all they want to know. However, let
me do it up in this wise :
Dear Miss M.—For the beautiful Bouquet
which you sent me, you will please accept
the sincere thanks of an entire stanger, with
a wish that your life may be a long and happy
one, and if you are not married, I hope you
may be soon. If you are, so much the bet
ter. May your husband be all to you, that
you could wish him to be, and may prosperi
ty and happiness over attend both of you,

Printed by D. Hall and W. Sellers, 1772.
and in the meantime, may you always re
member the printer. I know you must be
pretty, or else you could not arrange a col
lection of flowers so tastefully, for pretty la
dies generally have a taste for flowers. As
I write, the sweet perfume arises from off the
lovely flowers, and when I attempt to expreis
my heartfelt thankfulness, mg pen refuses
to do its bidding, and my thoughts wander
to your side.
It is with no little regret, Mr. Editor, that
I announce to your town readers and the citi
zens in general, that the morals of our town
are in a deplorable condition. On Sunday
last, it was stated in one of our Churches,
and truthfully too, that there is more sin and
wickedness in our borough, than in any other
town of its size in the State. Lewd men and
women are more numerous than can be con
ceived by the innocent ones. Even the drivers
and fighting men of the Circus that exhibited
here two weeks ago, declared that it was the
worst place they had ever visited. This is
truly a deplorable state of affairs. In the
name of all that's good, why is this tolerated
by our authorities ? Why do they not see to
it at once ? This is the last time I shall ever
write of the morals of our town, and I im
plore the authorities to work a reform by
some means or others, for I fear lest it will
become my sad duty to chronicle a horrible
murder committed in our midst. A decent
man or woman cannot any longer walk our
streets, without the fear of being insulted.—
I call on the Burgess and Town Council to
enact laws for a reformation, and then see
that they are enforced, irrespective of per

west as—well I won't say where, but you
can imagine, I will not be able to furnish
your readers with a letter next week.
CASSVILLE, June 10, 1859.
Ma. EDITOR:-It has long been a matter
of regret to your correspondent, that this in
teresting little village has been left without
representation in the press of the county.—
County papers, if the name has any signifi
cance, are legitimate media for the circula
tion of county news ; but so long as the dif
ferent portions of the county are not repre
sented by resident reporters, the people fail
to realize the full measure of advantage to
which the circulation of these papers, may
be turned. Influenced by these considerations,
and knowing that the surest method of ac
complishing anything is to set about it, I have
determined to assume the responsibility of
collecting whatever items of interest may
transpire in this vicinity for the purpose of
giving them publicity. If the design meet
your approval you may set me down as Cass
Reserving a contemplated sketch of the to
pography of Cassville and vicinity for a fu
ture communication, I shall at present, note
only current events. In humble submission
to the invariable practice of all ages and. na
tions, I place first on the list, that prolific
and exhaustless subject, the weather. Des
cription, it is to be feared, is impracticable.—
If we have not enjoyed, during the past week,
a spell of weather, the weather has unques
tionably had a number of spells. Awhile,
Sol pours down his rays with a vigor and inten
sity portending luck to the venders of parasols
and palm-leaf fans, when lo ! Aquarius un
folds his watery mantle, and, to the conster
nation of pic-nie schemers, shakes from its
ample folds a deluging torrent. Anon, the
rain ceases and we step forth to greet the re
turning sun, but meet instead, an atmospher
ic "cooler" chill enough to be the breathing
of the veritable Boreas. Then comes the sun
again, but what next, dear knows ! Great is
—the weather ! The crops, however, are do
ing finely, and promise an abundant yield,
despite the frost and the fly.
A distinguished characteristic of the Cass
ville people, is their patriotism. I remember
hearing it remarked, not far from the "Globe
Office," that there was sure to be something
" going on" in Cassville, on the Fourth of
July. The approaching fourth bids fair to
be an unusually merry time. The ladies—
their name is legion—have taken the matter
into their own hands, and, having formed
themselves into one grand committee, are
working with an energy which promises a
celebration, " the like whereof hath not been
seen" in Cassville. , They intend holding, in
a delightful grove near town, a grand festival,
to which they cordially invite everybody, in
tending to provide entertainments, both fes
tive and social, on such a scale as amply to
supply all that may attend. There is also to
be a concert, under the direction of Mr. B.
M. Green, an accomplished teacher of music,
well known to the people of Huntingdon, and
other parts of the county. -Now, Mr. Editor,
if you wish to enjoy Independence Day, just
make up your mind to come and see how they
do things here, on that day, and you will be
delighted with the excursion.
As first letters should not be lengthy, this
is, perhaps, already to long;* therefore, it
shall be no longer. C. C.

When Dr. Hance first prepared these Pills, he intended
them solely for Fits, Cramps and Spasms; but subse

Considering the author's well, known capacity, and long
and unremitting devotion to the task of elementary teaching,
we have strong reason to hope that the public are now to
be furnished with a thorough, systematic, progressive, and
entertaining method for the Piano.
We can confidently recommend it to teachers and pupils
as better adapted to the purposes of elementary instruction
than any others with which we are acquainted.
The plan pursued in this work is substantially thesame
as that developed in 011endorff's method of teaching lan
guages. It commences with the simplest elements. The
progress made will be gradual, so that every step will be
perfectly intelligible, and be rendered of positive value to
the pupil. Every difficulty is met with singly, and, after
thorough analysis, overcome by practice.
This method will, undoubtedly, provide teachers with a
well digested, progressive, and entertaining plan by which a
sound and correct knowledge of the art of playing the
piano may be acquired with comparatively little labor, and
iu so short a space of time as will almost scorn incredible
to those who have confined themselves to some of the
tedious systems heretofore in use.
This work contains ten engraved figures, illustrating the
different positions of the hands and fingers; and also a
likeness of the author.
Its typographical accuracy and appearance have never
been equalled in any musical work that has heretofore been
