YOUNG LIENS' TEMPERANCE CELEBRATION.-
We have been invited to attend a celebration
of the above caption, to be held near the 'Un
ion School House, on the Ridges, on the 27th
inst. The young men composing a Temper
ance Society, are the getters up of this cele
bration, and we are inforMed that it is the
intention of those interested, to make it one
of the grandest affairs ever gotten up in that
region, 'No•pains will be spared as regards
eatables, as they intend having a real feast.
Several able gentlemen of this and other pla
ces are expected to be present on the occasion,
to address the assemblage. No Providence
preventing, and we can possibly escape from
our arduous duties, we may be expected to be
present with our little basket on our arm.
ra. 7- Mr. Samuel Couch, a millwright, aged
about sixty years, a citizen of I - lenderson
township, met with a sudden death on Wed,
nesday last. He was engaged making re
pairs at Neff's mill in West township, when
of a sudden, the machinery started, the fly
wheel attached to an engine striking a board
upon which M. C. was standing, throwing
him with great force against the ceiling, and
falling between the wheel and the wall, his
body in an instant was awfully crushed. It
is supposed he was killed before he fell be
the machinery, as his head struck the
ceiling with great force.
ALMOST A FATAL ACCIDENT.—On Tuesday
evening of last week, while Mr. Isaac Rich
ardson of Franklin township, was examining
a revolver pistol for sale at Mr. Summers'
news stand near the post office, a load was
discharged which came very near taking the
life of Hugh R. McAlister, a young man from
Philadelphia. The e l)ullet entered the mouth
of Mr. M., cutting his lip and tongue some,
and struck a large back tooth breaking it off.
The striking the tooth fair in all probability,
saved the life of Mr. M. The bullet and tooth
were both found on the pavement.

MR. ElliTOß:—Permit me to compliment
you upon the excellence of the last number
of the Globe. It contains a real treasure of
amusing, interesting and .instructive matter.
He who at the present day fails to recognize
the usefulness of properly conducted news
papers, must be an incorrigible blockhead ,
and he who neglects to read them, is likely
over to remain in ignorance.
I have nothing of special character to.an
nounce at present, my chief object in writing
being to notice the second lecture before the
" Normal Class " of our Seminary, which
was delivered on Wednesday evening, by
Rev. J. M. Elderdice. Mr. E. is a man whose
voice is never heard but when something is
to be accomplished by speaking, that is, never
except for a good purpose, and when he does
speak, he speaks to purpose. He remarked
that as the teachers had been previously di
rected to what they ought to know, and what
they ought to do, he would direct their atten
tion to what they ought to be, and how they
ought to do. With his characteristic modes
ty, the lecturer started out by imploring the
charity of the audience, and then proceeded,
as every one who had ever heard him knew
he would do, to deliver a most thorough and
interesting lecture. Not wishing to trespass
on your space, I shall not enter into a synop
sis of the lecture. It related, of course, to
the habits and manners of the teacher. In
order to form a character upon the model of
"Christian gentleman," the lecturer pointed
to those divine arts of purity, gentleness and
love, which a Chesterfield may counterfeit,
but which the bible only, can effectually
teach. How much would the true soul of
courtesy and good manners gain, were men
and women to burn their books of etiquette,
and in the bible study the love of God and of
their brethren !
In haste, yours, C. C.
CAssvILLE, August 12, 1559
A MAN BURIED ALIVE.—We. learn of a
sad casualty which happened yesterday (Au
gust 2) in the town of Walker, some three or
four miles from the city, resulting in the
death of a young man named Charles Fitch.
It appears that he was engaged in digging a
well on his father's premises. After digging
down a few feet through gravel and " hard.
pan," a vein of -and was struck, through
which the well was sunk some ten or twelve
feet more without curbing, when they again
came to hard earth and gravel. It was in
this, nearly twenty feet below the sarface,
that young Fitch was at work some time in
the afternoon, yesterday, when the sand
stratum suddenly caved in, crushing and
burrying the unfortunate young man beneath
it. The neighbors instantly rallied and vig
orously set to work to rescue him, and it
proved no easy task, the sand having caved
and filled the well to - the upper crust of hard
earth. We are informed that they reached
him and uncovered his bead, when he was
found to be still alive. The earth caved in
again, and again he was hurried from sight,
and it was not until this morning that they
succeeded in rescuing his body, life having
fled. The affliction of his agonized parents is
a sad one, and was fearfully heightened by
the knowledge of his gradual and torturing
death.—Grand Rapids. Eagle.
To the Public.
MR. EDITOR.— Sir : Will you be so good as to grant me a
space in your paper, to show to the people of the county;
what my claims were, and what position I thought I oc
cupied when I went into the Convention on Tuesday last,
asking for a nomination for the office of Sheriff. It is known
to almost every person, that I went into a contract
with my brother, (who is since dead,) in January 1840, for
the erection of the Court Ifouse, and went on from that
time to November 1841, when the Court House was so far
completed that it was estimated that eight hundred or a
thousand dollars would finish it. At this time, there was
due us on the article of agreement, the sum of twenty-six
hundred and fifty dollars, when, by the duplicity and dis
honesty of two of the Commissioners, (for there was one
honest man in the Board,) assisted by their counsel, who,
I believe, was brought to do as he did, we were forced into
an assignment of our contract, and after the house was
finished, and viewers appointed to pass on it. they allowed
the sum of eleven hundred and fifty-five dollars and fifty
cents for extra work, which was done before we made the
assignment, which, with the Stan above mentioned, would
amount to the sum of thirty-eight hundred and five dol
lars and fifty cents (3805 50.) And after the matter was
all settled, and, as I supposed, paid, there still remained
the sum of seven hundred and fifty-five dollars and fifty
cents, which, according to the assignment, was due to me
and no one else. And, after the Commissioners had been
notified by my friend John McCahan, deed., not to pay it
to any, other person than myself, notwithstanding, in June
1844, (if I mistake not) the Commissioners paid it out to
other persons, by their giving their indemnifying bond
for the same, and have it to this day, besides three hun
dred dollars which is due and unpaid to this time. One
hundred and fifty dollars which is entered on the back of
the article of agreement, for the extension or addition of
four feet to the Portico, with one hundred and fifty dollars
for another addition or extension of four other feet, which
was to have been paid for by other persons, whose docu
ment I have to show any person who doubts my word for
what I say. This sum of $3OO is yet unpaid.
Notwithstanding all this, everything that I had in the
world was taken front me and sold, except what the law
then allowed, which was the zaltry sum of thirty-three
or four dollars, and left me a Yeggar, to get along as best
I could. And after having been broken up, and broken
down in spirit, I had nothing to do from January '4l, the
time my property was taken from sue, until August '47,
(I believe it was,) when I got a job from the Engineers on
the Pennsylvania Railroad, in the survey and location of
said road for nearly two years, ambafter that, my friends
took me in charge and put mein the Commissioners Office
for the terns of two years. now I discharged the duties
Of. my trust, I leave to the people of the county to decide.
These are my claims, if any, and the reason why I went
into the Convention on Tuesday last. But because I did
not belong to the Baptist Church, or the packing opera
tion which took place on Monday night last,l was thrown
out, almost without a hearing, notwithstanding, I thought
I had nine delegates certain on the first ballot, and one
doubtful—and that, I thought, would be as strong as any
of my competitors, beside the assurance of backing after
I never asked any man to go" for me because I was a
Presbyterian. I considered my claims, if claims at all,
and the time I had lived in the county, to be sufficient for
All I thought it was necessary for me to do, was to lay
the matter before the people, which I endeavored to do,
(as they had responded to a not exactly similar case a few
years ago,) by riding the county for twelve or thirteen
days, and thought it was so well understood, that I could
depend upon the honesty and intelligence of the people
for a verdict in my favor, by setting me on my feet again
and giving me something to do, that I might be enabled
to make a living for the remainder of my time in this coun
ty. But no! You are acquainted with the result.

Dr. Setll S. Hance :—I was in Baltimore in April, 1854,

nave had the surest demonstration in the following cer
tificate that their manufacture of Salamander Safes has at
length fully warranted the representations which have
been made of them as rendering an undoubted security
against the terrific element:
Philadelphia, April - 12th, 1856.
Messrs. EVANS & IVATSON—Gelltlerneil—lt affords us 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
couttuts 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.

A f fEDICAL SCIENCE.
The history of `•IIOOFLAND'S GERMAN 13.11 1
muti," 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
one remedy among the many advertised medicines, deser
ving the public commendation. It is a Met 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 Moorland's German Bitters? Phy
sicians prescribe it, Why should you discard it? Judger;
usually considered men of talent, have and do use it in'
their own families. Why should you reject it? Clergy- 4
men, and those the most eminent, take it: why should
not you? Let not your prejudice usurp your reason, to'
the everlasting injury of your health; if you are Sick, and'
require a medicine, try these Bitters.
These Bitters are prepared and sold by Dr. C. M, Jack-'
son, No. 418 Arch street, Philadelphia, Pa., and by drug
gists and storekeepers in every town and village in the
United States, Canadas, West Indies, and South America,
at 75 cents per bottle. See that the signature of C. - 5.1.
Jackson is on the wrapper of each bottle.
