THE HUNTINGDON GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, &C.
Thomas String's.ld and Gen. Jackson. •
When a little boy we heard the eloquence
of Thomas Stringfield. We saw him at the
last General Conference for the first time.—
In a few days after its adjournment he died.
.In the editorial correspondence of the Nash
ville Advocate we find a most interesting re
miniscence of him. R. M. Stevens said :
" I must tell of an interview with General
Jackson, which brother Stringer with myself
had about twenty days before the General's
death. We were riding along and called at
" General Jackson was sick, and not see
ing company; but the name of Thomas
Stringfield was a pass-word. Stringfield had
been a soldier under him—a Christain soldier,
for he was converted at eight years of age—
and through the war was steadfast as well
as brave. We were shown in the room where
the old warrior and statesman, whose fame
was.world-wide, sat feebly in his arm-chair.
The greeting between him and Brother String
field was hearty ; it was like the meeting of
brothers long parted. The sight of String
field, and the thoughts recalled, put the old
General in tears. They coursed down his
furrowed cheeks. Jackson was a man of
tears, notwithstanding his iron nature.—
" Ah, Mr. Stringfield, what times have been
since we met first ! -You were a boy in camp
at Emucfaw, and your head was bleeding
from an Indian bullet." So it was, and
Stringfield's forehead bore that scar to his
grave. He was a modest man, and quickly
turned the conversation from himself.
" Well, General, you are weak and failing
now. General, bow is it with your soul ?
What are your prospects beyond the grave?
To which Jackson replied : "My friend, I
am not afraid to die." A pause—" My hope
is in the Redeemer of the world; if saved, I
shall be a sinner saved by grace." "Had it
been in a camp-ground, of even in this church,"
said Brother Stevens, "I would have shouted
out loud; I never wanted to shout so bad in
my life. The place was turned into a sanc
tuary. We all wept. The farewell was
touching." " Good-by, General ; God bless
you." "Farewell, Mr. Stringfield; I hope
we will meet where wars are no more."—
And doubtless they have. met—the General
and his soldier—not as the first.but where
No rude alarm of raging foes,
No cares disturb the long repose."
Physical Benefit of the Sabbath
- The Sabbath is God's special present to
the working man, and one of its chief objects
is to prolong his life, and preserve efficient
his working $.11 . 4e. In the_ vital system it acts
Eke a comp,Stion pond ; it replenishes the
spirits, Jhe' r elasticity, and supplies the force
which is to fill the six days succeeding; arid
in the economy of existence, it answers_ the
same purpose as, in the economy of - income,
is answered by a saving bank. The frugal
man puts away a pound to-day and another
pound next mouth, and he who, in a quiet
way is putting by his stated pound from time
to time, when he grows frail and old, gets
not only the same pound back again, but a
good many pounds besides. And the con
scientious man, who husbands one day of his
existence every week—who instead of allow
ing-the Sabbath day to be trampled and torn
in the hurry and scramble of life, treasures
it devoutly up, the Lord of the Sabbath keeps
it or him, and, in the length of days, the
hale old age gives it back with usury. The
savings bank of human existence is the week
ly Sabbath:l—North. British Review.
Influence of Mothers.
" My mother," said Mr. Benton, not long
before he died, " asked me never to drink li
quor, and I never did. She desired me at
another time to avoid gaming, and I never
knew a card. She hoped .1 would not use
tobacco, and it never passed my lips.• Not
long ago, the Rev. Dr. Mills, in one of his
powerful appeals to mothers to consecrate
their children to the ministry of the gospel,
said: "A youth, after great deliberation,
and with the knowledge that his mother de
sired him .to be a clergyman, decided at last
to become alawyer; and soon after, his mother
inquired of him, in a tone of deep and tender
interest, " My son, what have you decided
to do ?" "To study law mother." She only
replied, " I had hoped otherwise ;" and her
convulsive sobbing told the depth of her dis
appointment, "Do you think," said he, " I
could go into the law over my mother's tears 2"
He reconsidered the case, and has long been
an able and efficient clergyman.
oar A dull parson cornered a farmer who
he seldom saw at his ministration, by asking
him directly, after a little reproof of his sin
of omission :
" Shall we see you at church next Sabbath ?
" Y-e-s," he replied slowly. " Yee, I'll go
—or send a hand."
zr. No man can tell whether he is rich or
poor by turning to his ledger. It is the heart
that makes a man rich. He is rich or poor
according to what he is, not according to
what he has.
stiy Voltaire, on one occasion, when his
friends were conversing on the antiquity of
the world, observed—" The world is like an
old coquette ; she disguises her age."
bar The most tender-hearted man we ever
beard of was a shoemaker, who always shut
his eyes - and whistled when he run his awl
into a sole.

trA.," 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 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 lloofland's German Litters? 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,

GROVER & BAKER'S CELEBRA
TED FAMILY SEWING MACHINES.
.New Styles—Prices from $5O to $125. Extra
Charge of $5 for Hemmers.
730 Chestnut street,
These Machines sew from two spools, as purchased from
the store, requiring no re-winding of thread; they Hem,
Fell, Gather, and Stitch in a superior style, finishing each
seam by their own operation, without recourse to the
hand-needle, as is required by other machines. They will
do better and cheaper sewing than a seamstress can, even
if she works for one cent an•hour, and are, unquestionably,
the best Machines in the market for family sewing, on ac
count of their simplicity, durability, ease of management,
and adaptation to all varieties of family sewing—executing
either heavy or fine work with equal facility, and 'without
special adjustment. -
As evidence of the unquestioned superiority of their
Machines, the GROPER S: BAKER SEWING MACEEIKE COMPANY
beg leave to respectfully refer to the the following
"Having had one 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 H. Y. Indepen
"I confess myself delighted with your Sowing 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. I'.
"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 GnovEn. & BAKER 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
their testimonials to its perfect adaptedness, as well as la
bor-saving qualities in the performance of family and
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
ery lady who desires her sewing beautifully and quickly
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."—j. W Norris, daughter of Gen. Geo. F. Morris,
Editor of the Home Journal.
Extract of a letter from Taos. R. LEAVITT, Esq., an
American gentleman, now resident in Sydney, New South
Wales, dated January 12., 1858:
"I bad 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, be
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
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 bad 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. Harms, 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 holi
day in commemoration of their good deeds for humanity."
—Cassius N. 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 notbuy G.Brourn, Nashville, Tom.

sily understood and kept in repair. I earnestly recom
mend this Machine to all my acquaintances and others."—
Mrs. N. A. Forrest, Memphis, Tenn. --
"We find this Machine to work to our satisfaction, and
with pleasure recommend it to the public, as we believe the
Grover & Baker to be the best Sewing Machine in use."—
Dcary Brothers, .Allisonia, 2'enn.
"If used exclusively for family purposes, with ordinary
care, I will wager they will last one 'three score years and
ten,' and never get out of fix."—John Erskine, Nashville,
"I have had your Machine for several weeks, and am
perfectly satisfied that the work it does is the best and most
beautiful that ever was made."—Afuggie Aimison, Nash
' "I use my Machine upon coats, , dressmaking, and fine
linen stitching, and the -work is admirable—far better than
the best hand-sewing, or any other machine I have ever
seen."—Lucy B. Thfnupstm, Nashin7le, Tenn. •
"I find the work the strongest and most beautiful I have
ever seen, made either by hand or machine, and regard the
Grover & Baker Machine as one of the greatest blessings to
our sex."—Nrs. Taylor, Nashville, Tenn.
"I have one of Grover & Baker's Sewing Machines in
use in my family, and find it invaluable. I can confidently
recommend it to all persons in want of a machine."—G. T.
Thompson, Nashville, Tenn
" I take pleasure in certifying to the utility of the Gro
ver & Baker Sewing Machines. I have used one on almost
every description• of work for months, and find it much
stronger and better in every respect than work done by
hand."—Mrs. D. W. Wheeler, Nashville, Tenn.
"I would be unwilling to dispose of my Grover & Baker
Machine for a large amount, could I not replace it again at
pleasure."—Nrs. 11. G. Scowl, Nashville, Tenn.

of twenty young ladies. We with pleasure recommend
the Grover & Baker Sewing Machine to be the best in use."

seen "—Mrs. Bryan, wife of Bev. A. M: Bryan, Memphis,
" It affords me much pleasure to say, that the Machine
works well; and I do not hesitate to recommend it as pos
sessing all the advantages you claim for it. My wife is
very much pleased with, it, and we take pleasure in certi
fying to this offect."—R. C. Brinkley, Memphis, nun.
"It gives me pl . casure to find the Grover & Baker Sew
ing Machine giving so much satisfaction. I have it in
constant use, and find it all that could be desired. It is
the most simple and durable machine in use, and I heart
ily recommend it."—F. N. White, Memphis, Tenn.
"Having seen, examined, and used many other kinds of
Sowing Machines, I feel fret to say, that the Grover &Ba
ker Machines are far superior to all others in use."—.3l.
Francios Sell; .Nashville, Tenn.
" I consider my Sewing Machine invaluable, and Would
not take five times its cost, if I could not supply its place.
With it I can do all my family sewing in about one-fourth
the time I could with my hands."—N.T. Seat ; Nashville,
