THE _HUNTINGDON GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOT ED TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, &C,
Huntingdon, Wednesday, Aug. 10, 1859
LOCAL 8c PERSONAL.
SATURDAY ND:MT.-All hail Saturday night !
The night - prior to the poor'man's holiday, or
rather day of rest. But how is Saturday night
spent by the poor man ? Is it in preparing
for the Sabbath ? Or, is it in drunkenness and
rowdyism.? Alas! too true I Hundreds, yea
thousands, spend it in drunkenness and de
bauchery. Of course, there are some who
prepare for the coming Sabbath, and who
spend their evenings at home with their fam
ilies, but we-are inclined to the opinion that
a, majority piss their Saturday nights in
hatipts of- darkness, where the poisoned, cup
and:the enticing game leads them to utter
ruin and damnation ; where friend meets
friend, and each strives to fleece his neighbor
out of- his hard .earnings for the week. And
what becomes of their families, whilst they
are in these dens on Saturday nights ? Oh !
name it not, for it will make their conscience
smote them in their downward course to de
struction., When the husband returns from
his week's labor on Saturday evening, his
wife meets him with a smile and a kiss, and
announces supper in readiness. Supper over,
the husband puts on his hat and is about go
ing out, when his wife intercepts him, and
inquires what time he will be home to-night?
Ito informs her that be will not be gone
long; that he has promised to meet a friend,
and that it was impossible for him to break
the engagement. Poor wife, little does she
know What awful deeds her husband is com
mitting while she is patiently waiting his re
turn. She reminds him before he departs
from her side that it is Saturday night, and
that she would like to have his company.—
Ile assures her that he will not be gone long,
she kisses.him affectionately, he departs, and
she waits his return 'with the patience of
She watches the hands' of the clock, as
they. tell the hear Of night. Eight o'clock
comes but no hUsband. Nine, he comes not.
She listens with that attention which only a
wife and mother can listen, for the footsteps
of her .husband. Alas ! he comes not yet.—
" Great God," she at last exclaims, " four
o'clock, and husband not borne yet." At
last he comes, reeling and tottering under
the maddening influence of the intoxicating
bowl, his money all spent, and his hopes
blighted. She, however, meets him with a
sad smile and puts him to bed, where he
spends most of his Sabbath. She entreats of
him to do so no more. He promises, and all
goes smoothly along again until Saturday
night; . he making- some kind of an excuse
for being so poor'when his dear wife entreats
of him Tor a morsel of bread. By her shrewd
Management, however, they make out to get
.along until next pay day. Thus is Satur
day night spent by thousands, and thus is it
spent bij some in Huntingdon. Young men,
take warning. Old men set your sons a good
example, and teach them to shun the haunts
of wickedneSs and corruption.
Boy KILLED.—We are informed that a boy
was killed by a freight train on the Broad
Top Railroad, at Saxton, on Saturday last.
It appears that the train was' switching off
the main track to the siding, and, as is cus
tomary with boys everywhere, he was jump
ing off and on the train whilst in motion, and
being caught somehow or other, he was thrown
with his head upon the track, the wheels pas
sed over it, taking the upper part entirely off.
He died instantly. We did not learn his
name. This is another sad warning to boys.
Every day do we see boys climbing about the
cars while they are in full motion. This can
be, and should be stopped before such an 'ac
cident occurs again. It is forbidden by the
Railroad Companies, and why is it tolerated ?
We are only surprised that it does not•become
our sad duty, as a reporter, to chronicle more
accidents of this kind. It is no pleasant task,
we assure . you, to write about such things,
and the less we have to do, the better we will
be satisfied. Only last Saturday evening,
we : witnessed a foolhardy attempt of a young
man to jump on the passenger train going
west, whilst in full motion opposite the Post
Office. He missed the hold he reached for
and was thrown with great force to the ground,
and we.only wonder that be escaped getting
his neck broken ; however, he did not receive
any, serious injury, more than being dread
fully frightened. We wonder that any sane
man would attempt snob a rash act. Parents
would do well to : keep their children away
from about the cars, else, some day they may
see them brought home a. corpse. Not only
in this town is it practiced, but in all others.

FRUIT JAR'S.-Our neighbor, Mr. Jas. A.
Brown, of the Hardware Store, has just re
ceived a large supply of air-tight jars, for
putting , up'.fruit. They are the best thing of
the kind in use. The lid is in two pieces,
and made or cast iron with an India rubber
ring between the two plates, with a screw on
'the top,' which, when screwed down, expands
the India rubber, making the jar perfectly
air-tight. They are of the best finish, and
are strong and durable, and as the season for
putting up fruit is at hand, persons in need
of the article will do well to call at the Hard
-ware Store, as it is the only place in town
where they can had.

• .PERSECUTION.—We know of no class
of individuals who are more subjected to per
secution or blackguardism than editors.—
Last week's leader contained a sentence which
does not meet with the approbation of all.—
It was either too strong or too weak. - It was
either deviating from the correct principles
which he professes to support, or it was not.
Another article, not exactly under the edito
rial head, was altogether wrong. Some, how
thinkit.was exactly the thing. Such a
notice would have been better had it been in
sertedin the—stoie, &c., &c. 4 Now in the
name of all the God's at once !" what• is an
editor to do. How can we pleaSe "everybody
and all their relations." That's the question.
How is it to be settled ? Just this way
Let every editor do the best he can and please
as far as is possible for him so to do. Every
day is he 'held up in.some•light or other, eith
er in ridicule or just the opposite. It has
been so in all ages past, it will be so in all
ages to come, and .we say let it be so, for
we, as an editor, do not pretend to please
everybody, for we know that a man of sound
mind and good judgment, will condemn no
editor for publishing what does not exactly
please bim, , because he happens to be en the
opposite side of the question, or because his
views of the leading political questions of the
day do not exactly agree with those of the
AUGUST.—Beautiful August! The last
Summer month of the year; and we can soon
exclaim, with the prophet of old, "the har
vest is past, the summer is ended, and we are
not saved." Soon - will the leaves turn yel
low, wither and fall to the ground. How,
dear‘reader, have you enjoyed the warm sum
mer months that are passed and gone? We
have spent a happy season. We are perfectly
satisfied with the pleasures and sports we
have witnessed and- participated in, and, we
think, when a printer has no room for com
_rio person else has. How thankful
we all should be, for the bountiful harvest
we have been favored with. Soon autumn,
with all its varied changes, will be upon us.
How we love the autumn; how we admire
the beautiful aspect it presents. The green
foliage of to-day, will then be changed to a fas
cinating yellow. But it is not our intention
to deliver a sermon on the beautiful season
near at hand, so we will close, by quoting a
few lines from Bryant, who exclaims,,
" Oh, Autumn ! why so soon
Depart the hues that make thy forest glad;
Thy gentle witid and thy fair sunny noon,
And leave thee wild and sad!
Ah! 'twere a lot too blest
For ever in thy colour'd shades to stray,
Amid the kisses of the soft southwest,
To roam and dream of aye.
We go to pres; on Tuesday at noon,
consequently we can not give the proceedings
of either of the party Conventions. The at
tendance on the People's Convention which
was held yesterday afternoon, was large, and
the Democratic which meets to-day promises
to be more than usually interesting. The in
dications are that harmony -and nothing else
will prevail in our Convention. This is grat
ifying to the true friends of the Democratic
party and its principles. We shall give the
Tickets nominated, and the proceedings of
both Conventions in our next.
THE DELEGATE ELECTIONS IN THE BOROUGH.
—The Democrats were united and selected
by acclamation, Owen Boat and Lewis Ber
0 2 o ens as delemates
The People's Party had a "high time" of
it. Two sets of delegates were run, Rothrotl►
and Nash on one side against all opposition,
and their delegates were elected by four to
one. We have never seen . a wanner or more
Da7. Visitors from the Bedford Springs are
fast returning to their homes in the cities.—
The amount of travel done on the Broad Top
Road just now, is considerable. The Wa - rm
Springs have been pretty liberally patronized
this season. had• we the time and the means
we might take rooms at some of the celebra
ted watering places with many of our eastern
brothers, who are rusticating with the "bugs"
in every direction.
rt:b=- On Saturday evening last, while Mr•
Albert Owen, County Superintendent, was
riding along in the country, a short distance
from town, his horse became unmanageable
and ran against a fence, injuring him consid
erably. We did not learn the extent of his
injuries, but are informed that he is recover
ing as speedily as can be e,xpected.

of Geo. Householder, was almost instantly

Last Sabbath was quarterly meeting of the
M. E. Church, and, as. usual on such occa
sions, the sacrament was administered. Af
ter the meeting adjourned, the members went
their several ways, some to dine with friends
in town, some to their homes in the country.
In about an hour the doctors were in requisi
tion in every direction ; the whole member
ship was seized with a simultaneous "billions
attack," and the demand for remedial agents
was general. The first smell of the sump
tuous dinners prepared prowled sudden and
involuntary eructation on the part of all the
orthodox members of the respective families.
The venerable Peter Cartwright, Presiding
Elder, for whom extra preparations had, of
course,. been made, retired from the prospect
as dinner came on, a little bent over, with
both hands placed below his vest buttons, de
claring that "he didn't feel like eating."—
One brother is said to have made for his house
half bent, and in reply to his wife's "What's
the matter ?" exclaimed in a despairing tone,
"Oh! I've got the cholera!" The epidemic
spread all through the country, exciting con
siderable alarm, and occasioning a general
casting up of accounts. But the panic sub
sided, when it was ascertained that antimo
nial wine had been, by mistake, administered
to the whole body of communicants ! We
understand that "Uncle Peter" said "it was
the first time lie ever knew an attempt to
vomit the devil out of the church." Although
it was a serious matter, the sinners, owing to
the hardness of their hearts, did laugh.—
Winchester (Ill.) Chronicle, July 16.
THE TOMATO As FOOD.—Dr. Bennet, a pro
fessor of some celebrity, considers the tomato
an invaluable article of diet, and ascribes to
it very important medical properties :—"lst.
That the tomato is one of the most powerful
aperients of the liver and other organs; where
calomel is indicated, it is probably one of the
most effective and the least harmful remedial
agents known to the profession. 2d. That a
chemical extract will be ohtained from it that
will supersede the use of calomel in the cure
of disease. 3d. That he has successfully
treated diarrhoea with this article alone.-
4tb. That when used as an article of diet it
is almost sovereign for dyspepsy and indiges
tion. - sth. That it should be constantly used
for daily food ; either cooked or raw or in the
form of catsup, it is the most healthy article
now in use."
We are not aware of any acts in the
personal or political history of Mr. Breckin
ridge since his elevation to the Vice Presi
dency, which should call down upon him the
censure of a Democratic newspaper—unless
it be considered a crime in him to desire the
election of Mr. Douglas, with all his faults,
to the U. S. Senate, in preference to Mr. Lin
coln, one of the blackest of the Black Repub
licans of Illinois. This may be an unpardon
able sin against party fealty in the eyes of
the Pennsylvanian, but it is not so consider
ed by the Democrats generally of our noble
A SINGULAR DEATM—On Tuesday of last
week, says the Wadesborough (New York)
Angus, John Sibley living near Cedar Hill,
met with a sudden and violent death from a
most unexpected and singular cause. He
was in the act of passing through the gate
leading to his brother's house, his knife in
his hand peeling some fruit. While thus en
gaged, the gate, in closing, struck his arm
and drove the knife into-his- heart, causing a
wound which proved fatal in a few hours.—
He died on the following morning, he was
about sixteen years of age.

Dr. Seth S. Hence :—I was in Baltimore in April, 1854,
and from a paper I received of yours was induced to buy a
box of your Pills, recommended as a sovereign cure for the
Epileptic Fits. At that time one of my servants had been
atUcted with fits about twelve years. When reaching
home, I commenced with the pills according to directions.
Ido not think she has had once since. My wife, though,
is somewhat induced to believe she may liave had one only.
Enclosed you will find five dollars, for which you will
please forward me two boxes. I suppose you can forward
them by mail. Your compliance will oblige me. Yours
respectfully. M. P. SLEDGE.
Dr. Hance's Epileptic Pills are also a sovereign remedy for

neuralgia, ticdoloreux, or ordinary headache, afflicted with

experiencing any other pain of disability arising from the
unnatural condition of the wonderful machinery which
connects every member with the source of sensation, mo

THE SALANA-VDER SAFES OF PHILADELPHIA
AGAINST THE IWORLD
EVANS & .WATSON
Have had the surest demonstration in the following cer
tificate that their manufacture of Salamander Safes has at
length fully warranted the represenations which have
been made of them as rendering an undoubted security
against the terrific element:
Philadelphia, April ifith,lBs6.
Messrs. Ev.ors S: WATSON—Gentlemen—lt affords IN the
highest satisfaction to state to you, that owing to the very
protective qualities of two of the Salamander Safes which
we purchased of you some few months since, we saved a
large portion of our jewelry, and all our books, papers. &c.,
exposed to the calamitous fire in Ranstead Place, on the
morning of the 11th instant.
When we reflect that these Safes were located in the
fourth story of the 'building we occupied, and that they
fell subsequently into a heap of burning ruins, where the
vast concentration of heat caused the brass plates to melt,
we cannot but regard the preservation of their valuable
contents as most convincing proof of the great security
afforded by your Safes.
We shall take much pleasure in recommending them to
men of business as a sure reliance against fire.

PHYSICIAN AND SURGEON:
OFFICE, Hill street, opposite Pr. Lucien, offers his profes
sional services to the citizens of Huntingdon and vicinity.
The history of "IIOOFLAND'S GERMAN 1117-
TEICS," the most remarkable medicine of the, day, and
the many cures that have been performed with it in cases
of LIVER COMPLAINT, DYSPEPSIA, NERVOUS DE
BILITY, and diseases arising from a disordered liver or
stomach. place it among the most astonishing discoveries
that have taken place in the medical world. The diseases
to which these Bitters are applicable are so universal, that
there are but few of our friends who may not test their
virtues in their own families or circle of acquaintances,
and prove to their own satisfaction that there is at least
ono remedy among the many advertised medicines, deser
ving, the public commendation. It is a fact that, in the
minds of many persons, a prejudice exists against what
are called Patent Medicines; but why should this prevent
you resorting to an article that has such an array of tes
timony to support it as Boofliners German Bitters? Phy
sicians prescribe it, Why should you discard it? Judges,
usually considered melt of talent, have and do use it in
their own families. Why should you reject it? Clergy
men, and those the most eminent, take it; why should.
not you? Let 110 t, your prejudice usurp your reason, to
the everlasting injury of your health ; if you are sick, ani
require a medicine. try these Bitters.
These Bitters tire prepared and sold by Dr. C. M..Tack
