THE HUNTINGDON GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, &C,
Walking in the country one morning, in
early spring -time, we seated ourself to rest on
a large stone near an Orchard-gate. Very
soon we observed a large man hanging to the
top-most limbs of a small apple tree with one
hand, while with the other he was cutting off
twigs and branches. We bade him good
morning. He answered cheerfully ; and we
ventured to hint that the tree he had climbed
bore a heavy burden, "Yes," he said, " the
trees all need pruning, but I can only attend
to a few of them. The others wouldn't bear
" Why don't you fasten your saw to a pole,
stand on the ground, and prune such limbs
as most require it ?" we asked.
" Well, I declare," he answered, " that
would do—l didn't think of it."
There was a valuable lesson in that confes
sion—"l didn't think of it." It explained
why, in many respects, the farmer was not
prosperous. He was a hard worker. He
endeavored to be economical; but he was
always behind. His orchard didn't yield
abundantly—his cattle had disease—his grain
was often poor—and be could only sell at a
low price, because he didn't think. He had
never learned fore-thought—he did not know
what it was to consider—he did not under
stand how judicious liead-work assists hand
Didn't think—that is the sorry expla
nation'Of much error—of many a crime—of
many a failure—of many a hardship, and
many an abuse.
Little boys and girls, bear in mind that
whatever advantages you may have at home,
in school, in business, or in society, unless
you think, your lives will be sad and your
efforts unsuccessful. Learn, then, while you
are young, the art of thinking. To be great
and good, you must understand the art of
reflection, as well as appreciate the pleasure
The Secret of Happiness.
The most common error of men and women
is that of looking for happiness somewhere
outside of useful work. It has never yet been
found when thus sought, and never will be
while the world stands, and the sooner this
truth is learned the better for every one. If
you doubt the proposition, glance around
among your friends and acquaintances, and
select those who appear to have the most en
joyment in life. Are they the idlers and
pleasure-seekers, or the earnest workers ?
We know what your answer will be. Of all
the miserable human beings it has been our
fortune, or misfortune, to know, they were
the most wretched who had retired from use
ful employments in order to enjoy themselves.
Why, the slave, at his enforced labor, or the
hungry toiler for bread, were supremely hap
py in comparison. Earnestly would we im
press upon young minds the truth we have
stated. It lies at the foundation of all well
doing and well-being. It gives tranquility
and pleasure to the youth, just stepping across
the threshold of rational life, as well as to
the man whose years are beginning to rest
upon his stoop shoulders. Be ever engaged
in useful work, if you would be happy.—
This is the great secret.—Arthur's Magazine.
A TOUGH STORY.—There is a place in
Maine so rocky that when the down easters
plant corn, they look for crevices in the rocks
and shoot the grains in with a musket ; they
can't raise ducks there no how, for the stones
are so thick that the ducks can't get their
bills between them to pick up the grasshop
pers, and the only way the sheep can get at
sprigs of grass is by grinding their noses on
a grind stone.
But that ain't a circumstance to a place
on the eastern shore ;—there the land is so
poor that it takes two killdeas to say " kill
dea;" and on a clear day you can see the
grasshoppers climb up a mullen stalk, and
look with tears in their eyes over a, fifty acre
field ; and the humble bees have to go down
on their knees to get at the grass ; all the
mosquitoes died of starvation, and the turkey
buzzards had to emigrate.
But there is a county in Virginia which
can beat that—there the land is so sterile
that when the wind is at the north-west, they
have to tie the children to keep them from
being blown away ; there it takes six frogs
to see a man, and when the dogs bark they
have to lean against the fence; the horses
are so thin that it takes twelve of them to
make a shadow, and when they kill a beef
they have to hold him up to knock him down.
Ser Mrs. Partington says : " I haven't
any desire to live longer than the breath re
mains in my body, if it isn't more than
eighty years. I wouldn't wish to be a cen
turion; and the idea of surviving one's fac
tories always gives me a disagreeable censo
riousness. But whatever is to be, will be,
and there is no knowing a thing will take
place till it expires."
Air Precipitation ruins the best laid de
signs ; whereas patience ripens the most dif
ficult, and renders the execution of them
Ate°m Every man must in a measure be alone

THE SALAMANDER SAFES OF PHILADELPHIA
AGAINST THE WORLD. •
Have 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 at WArSos—Gentlemen—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, .tc.,
exposed to the calamitous Ere in Ranstead Place, on the
t 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.

L The history of "1100FLAND'S GETIMAN BIT
TER.:," 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 Hootland's German Bitters? Phy
sicians prescribe it, Why should you discard it? Judges,
usually considered men 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 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

"Having had ono of Grover & Baker's Machines in my
family for nearly a year and a-half, I take pleasure in
commending it as every way reliable for the purpose for
which it is designed—Family Sewing."—Mrs. Joshua
Leavitt, wife of Rev. Dr. Leavitt, Editor of N. Y. indepen
"I confess myself delighted with your Sewing Machine,
which has been in my family for many months. It has
always been ready for duty, requiring no adjustment, and
is easily adapted to every variety of family sewing, by
simply changing the spools of thread."—Mrs. Elizabeth
Strickland, wife of Rev. Dr. Strickland, Editor of N. Y.
" - After trying several different good machines, I pre
ferred yours, on account of its simplicity, and the perfect
ease with which it is managed, as well as the strength and
durability of the seam. After long experience, I feel com
petent to speak in this manner,
and to confidently recom
mend it for every variety of family sewing."—Mrs. E.
B. Spooner, wife of the Editor of Brooklyn Star.
"I have used a GROVER & Bs zza Sewing Machine for
two years, and have found it adapted to all kinds of fam
ily sewing, from Cambric to Broadcloth. Garments have
been worn out without the giving way of a stitch. The
Machine is easily kept in order, and easily used."—Mrs.
A. B. Whipple, wife of Rev. Geo. Whipple, New York.
"Your Sewing Machine has been in use in my family
the past two years, and the ladies request me to give you

household sewing."—Robert Boorman, New York.
"For several months we have used Grover & Baker's
Sewing Machine, and have come to the conclusion that ev

done, would be most fortunate in possessing one of these
reliable and indefatigable 'iron needle-women,' whose com
bined qualities of beauty, strength and simplicity, are in
valuable."--.T. W. Morris, daughter of Gen. Geo. P. Morris,
Editor of the Home Journal.
Extract of a letter from Taos. R. LEAVITT, Esq., au
American gentleman, now resident in Sydney, New South
Wales, dated January 12, 1858:
"I had a tent made in Melbourne, in 1853, 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 outstood all the double seams sewed by sailors with a
needle and twine."
"If Homer could be called up from his murky hades, he
would sing the advent of Grover & Baker as a more be
nignant miracle of art than was ever Vulcan's smithy.
He would denounce midnight shirtmakinn• as 'the direful
spring of woes unnumbered.'"—Fh•of. North.
"I take pleasure in saying, that the Grover & Baker
Sewing Machines have more than sustained my expecta
tion. After trying and returning others, I have three of
them in operation in my different places ,
and, after four
years' trial, have no fault to find."—J. H. Hammond, Sen
ator of South Carolina.
"My wife has had one of Grover & Baker's Family Sew
ing Machines for some time, and I am satisfied it is one of
the best labor-saving machines that has been invented. I
take much pleasure in recommending it to the public."—
J. G. Harris, Governor of Tennessee.
"It is a beautiful thing, and puts everybody into an ex
citement of good humor. Were I a Catholic, I should in
sist upon Saints Grover and Baker having an eternal boll
day in commemoration of their good deeds for humanity."
—Cassius M. Clay.
"I think it by far the best patent in use. This Machine
can be adapted from the finest cambric to the heaviestcas
simere. It sews stronger, faster, and more beautifully
than one can imagine. If mine could not be replaced,
money could not buy it."—Mrs. J. G.Brown, Nashville, Tenn.

sily understood and kept in repair. I earnestly recom
mend this Machine to all my acquaintances and others."—

with pleasure recommend it to the public, as we believe the

care, I will wager they will last one 'three score years and
ten,' and never get out of fix."--JOhn Erskine, Nashville,

perfectly satisfied that the work it does is the best and most
beautiful that ever was made."—.Atag,gie Aimison, Arash

linen stitching, and the work is admirable—far better than
the best hand-sewing, or any other machine I have ever
seen."—Lucy B. Thompson, .21 - ashville, Tenn.

ever seen, made either by hand or machine, and regard the
Grover & Baker Machine as one of the greatest blessings to
our sex."—Mrs. Taylor, Nashville, Tenn.

use in my family, and find it invaluable. I can confidently
recommend it to all persons in want of a machine."—G. T.

every description of work for months, and find it much
stronger and better in every respect than work done by
hand. —Mrs. D. Ir. Wheeler, Nashville, Tenn.

Machine for a large amount, could I not replace it again at
pleasure."—Mrs. TI. G. &creel, Nashville, Tenn.

of twenty young ladies. We with pleasure recommend
