THE HUNTINGDON GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, &C.
[Correspondence of The Globe.]
I once read eal anecdote of a little boy
whose father kits a sta. Captain, and who was
taken by hitt to sea. to leatn to be a sailor.—
To test his agility he was requested to climb
to the mast-head. This Was easily accom
plished; but when about to descend, he looked
down ; And seeing the great height to which
he had arisen, became terrified. He called
to his father to aid him, who replied, "Look
upward , l my son, look upward ! if you look
down you will become dizzy, but look upward
and there is no danger." The boy followed
his father's advice, and descended in safety.
The story made an impression upon my mind
at the time, which has never been erased,
and as Franklin remarked of himself when
he spent all his holiday money for a whistle,
" This little incident has since been of great
service to me," if not in a practical, at least
in a theoretical point of view. And the re
sult of my theorizing is, that whatever be
our station in life, if we would meet its vicis
situdes with a firm, unwavering faith in God's
Providence—if we would leave the world bet
ter for reason of our having lived in it—if
we would accomplish the ultimate end of our
existence—in short if we would be truly
great and good, like the boy who climbed to
the mast head, we must look upward.
Can any one doubt it, who in his daily in
tercourse with mankind beholds them alter
nately rising and falling on life's arena, and
observes the different effects these changes
produce upon different individuals.
If such a person does exist, he is not a good
philosopher. Afark the aspirant to wealth as
he moves onward through the jostling crowd,
adding dollar after dollar to his already abun_
dant store ! Sycophantic flatterers are around
him—summer friends flutter like gay butter
flies about his path—he scarcely realizes the
height to which •he has attained among his
fellow-worshippers of the shining dust—un
til some unexpected turn in the wheel of for
tune induces him to pause. He looks beneath
him, the dizzying height causes him to trem
ble ; his heart sickens as the startling fact is
presented to him, that by stratagem and dis
honesty alone, he can sustain his present po
He struggles for awhile between the alter
natives of wealth and .a guilty conscience,
pciverty and an unsullied name. The conflict
is terrible ; but when the crisis has arrived,
he hears the voice of the great Father calling
unto him to look upward! and with unfal
tering trust, that the Omnipotence that aided
him in his prosperity will support him in ad
versity, he safely descends to his former po
sition, scorned, it is true, by haughty world
lings, but bearing within his own bosom that
richest of earthly treasures, an appraving
conscience, while the smiles of the wise and
good beam upon him like rays of sunshine
upon a ruined tower.
View the ambitious student as the waver
ing hours of night find him bending over his
arduous task, conscious that his emaciated
frame is fast wasting away like the flicker
ing taper beside him, from the effects of his
unrelenting toil. The votaries of pleasure
beckon him to join their ranks; he pauses a
moment between their allurements and the
imperatives of duty. To remain stationary
is impossible. He looks beneath him and
knows by relaxing his hold now, he must sink
into . oblivion. He looks upward ! Fame,
honor, rank, eminence, are extending toward
him their glittering prizes , . He feels that by
unwearied efforts he may attain thein, and
~T he youth who bore through snow and-ice,
A banner with this strange device,
"His brow be sad and his eye beneath
Flash like a falchion from its sheath,"
be toils on, heedless of the light of happy
homes ; heedless of the entreaties of maidens
fair; heedless of the warnings of peasants
and aged men ; heedless of everything save
the object for which he is aiming, until
"From out the sky serene and far,
A voice falls like a falling star,
The end has been reached ; another im
mortal name has been enrolled upon Fame's
blazoned scroll. The enfranchised soul has
attained the acme of its aspirations—eter_
nal freedom in the Paradise of God ; an
acme attained only by looking upward.
Another example I would give, it is that
of the christian pilgrim. He who along life's
beaten pathway meekly bears his daily cross,
and who amid " the lusts of the flesh and the
pride of life," sometimes realizes the warn
ing of the stars of faith and hope within his
bosom. For a time, perhaps, he falters in his
course ; but " a still little voice" is heard
bidding him look upward.
He remembers the humble supplement in
Gethsemane's garden, his spiritual eye dis
cerns the lowly Nazarene bearing his pon
derous cross toward Calvary's summit ; he
sees bim insulted, buffeted, scourged, cruci
fied ; he feels that all these sufferings were
borne for that frail erring race of which he
is a unit. Again, the stars of faith and hope
brighten—illuminate his way toward the Ce
lestial City—for his soul has been strength
ened by looking upward, and he has learned
from due experience—
sublime a thing it is
To suffer and grow strong."
V'elluesr teachers, if the random thoughts
I have just presented contain anything that
may inane you to look upward amid all fu
ture changes, my humble efforts have not
been in vain. Let this be our motto in eaCh
conflict . that awaits us in the performance of
the responsible duties of our noble profession
or teaching. For only by looking upward
can we accomplish a great work. D.

AGAINST THE WORLD.
EVANS & WATSON
Have had the surest demonstration in the following cer
tificate that their manufacture of Salamander Safes has at
length fully warranted the representations which Dave
been made of them as rendering an undoubted security
against the terrific element:
Philadelphia, April 12th, 1556.
Messrs. EvAxs Wiasea--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, &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.

The history of "lIOOFLAND'S GERMAN BIT
TEIts," 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
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,
ving the public commendation. It is a fact that, 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 Iloofiand'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
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,

"Having had one of Grover & Baker's Machines in my
family for nearly a year and a-half, I take pleasure in

which it is designed—Family Sewing."—Mrs. Joshua
Leavitt, wife of Rev. Dr. Leavitt, . Editor of N. Y. Indepen

is easily adapted to every variety of family sewing, by .
simply changing the spools of thread."—hfrs. 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 Gitovsa. & BAKER Sewing Machine for

Extract of a letter from Taos. B. LxtviTr, Esq., an
American gentleman. now resident in Sydney, New South
Wales, dated January 12, ISSS:
"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, ho
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 shirt-making as 'the direful
spring of woes unnumbered.'"—Prof. 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 i
them in operation in my different places ,
and, after four
years' trial, have no fault to find."—J. H. Hammond, Sen

the best labor-saving machines that has been invented. I
take much pleasure in recommending it to the public."—

beautiful that ever was made."—Maggie Aintison, Nash
