leer sister counties—that she has good farms
awl good and proud farmers. Bring your
stock, your grain, your fruit, your vegetables

TIIE HUEY Boys.—On Saturday evening
last out Sanctum was honored by a company
ofjuvenile singers, "The Huey boys,"—Mas
ters Eugene E. Simonton, Matthew Taylor,
David Elliot McMurtrie and William Scott.
They delighted us. with several songs, and
for new beginners they emecuted their parts
admirably well. The ancient borough is not
behind any town in the State in its musical
talent, vocal and instrumental, and we
pleased that the youth receive proper encour
agement from their parents to become perfect
in innocent amusements. All boys have suf
ficient time from their books to learn to play
upon some kind of an instrument, and while
they are thus engaged they will not be abus
ing themselves on the streets. The younger
they begin the more perfect they will become.
11" A soldier by the name of Platt, from
Jackson township, this county, was shot clean
through with a nail, by One of the guard at
the Lewistown encampment, on Friday night
last. The nail entered his abdomen, and
came out near the back bone. There are sei
oral stories afloat concerning the affair, and,
as we do not know which is the most reliable
ono, we forbear mentioning any. The last
accounts we had from the wounded man were,
that he was yet alive, but there were no hopes
of his recovery.
A RARE TREAT.—Prof. Coyle, assisted by
the Continentals, will give a concert in the
Court house, every evening during the Fair.
The exercises will consist of vocal and instru
mental music. All we have to say is, if the
people in attendance at the Fair, want to
hear good music, soul-stirring music, and
music which cannot be excelled, attend these
.ciar Will be in town next week—all the
candidates on both tickets. Of course they
will make themselves known to the voters
and make as many friends as possible... All
right. And we hope the voters will deter
mine before the day of election who to vote
for—and when they go to the ballot-box vote
boldly as an American citizen should.
4... qr A fellow, calling himself a Pennsyl
vania-Dutchman, held forth to quite a res-
Pectable audience on post office corner, on
Monday evening, trying to sell them the best
blacking in the World. He talked pretty
well, but it didn't appear to bring .in the

township apples. It would take but very few
such to fill a half bushel.
Mr. Jas. Hutchison left with us a specimen
of very fine potatoes. He has our thanks.
pEr The Excelsior Cornet Band, after be
ing lionized at Lewistown for a week, returned
home on Saturday night last. The Excelsior,
took everything down that came in their
way, this time, as on all former occasions.
They are bard to crawl over, that's so.

unmitigated scoundrel and thief, stole about

MR. EDITOR :-It was my privilege recent
ly, to attend a Sunday School Celebration,
which awakened an interest and produced an
impression, such as it has seldom been my
happiness to witness. A brief account of
the same, we think, cannot fail to interest
your many readers, and, we trust, awaken a
deeper interest among them in behalf of the
Sunday School cause.
This Celebration was held on Wednesday,
the 14th inst., in a beautiful grove, on the
farm of Mr. Pomeroy, at the foot of Tusca
rora Mountain, near Blair's Mills, Tell town
ship, in the south-eastern corner of our county;
almost on the identical spot where the four
counties of Huntingdon, Franklin, Perry and
Juniata meet. This ground had recently
been occupied by a Methodist Camp meet
ing, and many of the tents were yet stand
ing. The day was beautiful—a warm bright
sun and gentle breeze. Arrangements had
been made for all the schools to meet at the
Presbyterian Church, of Upper Tuscarora
Valley, of which the Rev. G. Van Artsdaleu
is the stated supply, and who has borne
a conspicuous part in getting up this Cele
About nine o'clock the schools began to
arrive, in large wagons, drawn by four, six
and eight horses. But such wagons, and
such loads of living freght, we never saw be
fore. Our school, just established this sum
mer in a destitute place numbered one hun
dred and nine, teachers and scholars, and these
were all brought in two wagons. The wag
ons were all beautifully decked with ever
greens, and the horses with flags. Some
3chools came singin:r beautiful hymns with
their charming sweet voices ; whilst others
brought the soul stirring music of the fife and
drum. One delegation after another arrived,
till the whole campus around the church was
one dense mass of human beings. And still
they come ! Excitement was now raised to
the highest pitch. The hills and valleys
echo - With the martial music of fife and drum ;
the chief marshal rides to and fro through the
crowd, making arrangements for the march,
and giving the word of command ; the ban
ners and flags float upon the breeze, whilst
the eyes of hundreds of children sparkle with
delight, and clap their little hands for jay,
saying one to another, " This is the Celebra
tion!" Indeed, Mr. Editor, it was worth a
ride fifteen or twenty miles, to witness the
enthusiasm manifested. One individual re
marks to us, he came . forty miles, and was
About two o'clock, the word of command
was given to march to the camp ground,
about a mile distant. This parade was per-
Imps the most imposing spectacle of the day,
and much credit is due to Col. Noss, of Noss
the chief marshal, for the good order
observed. First in the march was the band,
followed by the orators of the day ; then
came the choir ; next the schools, thirteen in
number, defiled in regular order, followed by
hundreds of citizens, and a long train of ve
hicles, the whole not less than half a mile in
length. It was a procession worthy of the
day and Occasion. It was worth an angel's
visit, and we doubt not many an angelic spirit
looked with delight on the scene. It was
such a sight, as was seldom if ever known,
amid these hills and vallies. We agree with
one of the eloquent speakers on the occasion,
"it was the greatest day of the kind ever
known in this region, since God fixed these
mountains on their immovable foundations."
By actual count, it was ascertained there
were over eight hundred children in the line
of march: Each teacher accoznpnnied his or
her class. Each school was headed by an
appropriate banner; not expensive, yet beau
tiful and neat, ornamented very tastefully
with evergreens and flowers. Several of
these banners had inscribed on them beauti
ful and appropriate mottoes. We noticed the
following : " Suffer little children to come
unto me," " In the name of our God we will
set up our banner," " Choose you this day,
whom you will serve," " Feed my lambs,"
" The fear of the Lord is the beginning of
wisdom." On one we observed the simple
but emphatic motto, "Onward." On another
two hearts entwined together, and over them
the word "Union." Not the least interesting
feature in the procession, was a band of little
girls dressed in white, with their heads un
covered and beautifully decked with ever
greens and roses. We saw one little girl in
the procession, who, we were told, had com
mitted to memory this summer, the whole of
the New Testament, as far as GalatiAns, and
she hoped to complete the whole boitli before
her school closed. This is one of the blessed
effects flowing from Sunday Schools. The
minds of the young are richly stored with
the precious truths of God's word, which are
as a lamp to their path through all the jour
ney of life,.
The religious exercises of the day were
under the direction of the Rev. G. Van Arts
daleu. After singing the opening ode, com
"We meet again in gladness,
And Iliankful voices raise,"
prayer was offered appropriate to the occa
sion, in which all seemed to unite.. Several
addresses were delivered, varying in style
and ability, but each adapted to do good, and
was well received by the large and attentive
audience. The interest of the occasion was
greatly increased, by the excellent perform
ance of the choir, of which all spoke in praise.
There was a spirit—an earnestness about
their singing, which wo have seldom beard
excelled. And when they sung the beauti
ful parting hymn,
"Bow pleasant thus to dwell below,
In fellowship of love,
And though we part, 'Hs bliss to know,
The good shall meet above,"
many. eyes were affected to tears.
The dinner and refreshments provided,
were partaken of with a good relish, during
an intermission of two hours; a part of which
time the band played some of their choicest
music. This was another interesting part of
the programme. The early breakfast, the
long ride, the march, the excitements of the
day, all tended to sharpen the appetite. But
there was enough and to spare. Such bas
kets of bread, butter and cheese, chickens
and hams, cakes and pies ! The children
were served first, by their Superintendents
and teachers, after which, all were invited to
come and partake. And though it was esti
mated there were two thousand present, all
were amply satisfied, and much taken away
This was a Union Sabbath School Celebra
tion, embracing as it did, Methodists and
Presbyterians, United Brethren, Lutherans
and Associate Reformed Presbyterians, all
coming together as one. Denominational dif
ferences were forgotten. Each seemed to vie
with the other, which should best promote
the common cause of Sunday School Educa
tion. It was a glorious,..day ! It was good
to be there! Long be remembered by
many ! The demonstration was eminently
calculated to do good, and good effects will
inevitably flow from it. Not a single event
occurred to mar the pleasure of the day. - -
About four o'clock, the vast assembly dis
persed in good order; the children highly
pleased with what they had seen and heard ;
the Superintendents and teachers forming re
newed resolutions to devote themselves more
entirely to the noble work in which they had
