Huntingdon, Wednesday, Dec. 28, 1859
LOCAL & PERSONAL.
OUR "KEEPERS."—On Thursday morning
last, we received by the hands of a friend, a
package, accompanied by the following note:
THREE SPRINGS, Dec. 20, 1859.
Ir. Lewis, Esq.—Dear Sir: While killing a lot of Tur
keys to-day, the thought struck me that one might not
come amiss to the Editor of the Globe, 1 therefore forward
you one per Pa. It. It., trusting your "keeper" will not
take umbrage at it.
1 remain most truly your friend,
A happy thought, and a fine turkey, and
we assure our friend that our "keeper" will
not feel the least offended.
On Friday, we received from our old friend
Mr. Frederick Schneider, sr., several pounds
of excellent sausage. These came in good
time, as we were out of the article, and our
" keeper " ditto.
In tl:e evening of the same day, we re
ceived from our young friends, Geo. & Wm.
McCabe, a large sirloin roast and a large sir
loin\ steak of fine beef. We can't complain
of our "keepers"—one and all have our
CHRISTMAS IN HUNTINGDON.—Some of our
citizens who were afraid their turkeys might
spoil, observed Saturday, but Monday was
more generally observed as the holiday.—
The young American Lancers, under com
mand of Maj. John S. 'Miller and Capt. A. S.
Harrison made quite a respectable appear.
ance. During the day there were several
displays of refined rowdyism, and one or two
arrests. In the evening the Excelsior Cor
net Band treated our citizens with their usual
good music, and at a late hour in the night,
we were aroused from our slumbers by a
" concord of sweet sounds" for which the
Home &ring Band is noted. The gentle
men of both Bands have our thanks.
TUE LOST LETTER.
Mt. Eli/Or :—The silence of Colon in his
last organ on the last letter question, is strong
presumptive evidence that the "unity," "sim
plicity" and " beautiful rounding" of ray ar
ticle was perfectly clear to his understanding.
If not, why did he not ask for further explana
tion upon that question. If he will meet the
issue like a man. I will give him something
more pointed—something ;bat will be proof
positive that my process of thinking is pre.
eminently worthy of belief.
„gErn The ladies and gentlemen of Peters
burg and vicinity are respectfully informed
That the Continentals, assisted by Prof. 11.
Coyle and two musical gents from Massachu
setts, will give one of their pleasing enter
tainments in the Presbyterian Church, at that
place, on Saturday evening, Dec. 31st, 1859.
All, are cordially invited to attend, and ow
ing to the kindness of Mr. Scott, persons
wishing to attend from this place, can do so,
as the 11 o'clock train east, P. M., will stop
at Petersburg on that occasion.

Marriage of First Cousins
The evil consequences of the marriage of
blood relations have become so formidable that
they have finally commanded the attention of
Chief Executive Officers and Legislatures of
several States—usually the very last parties
to whose consideration such important facts
are presented. In the State of Virginia, the.
consequences of family inter-marriages have
become appalling, and an effort is about to
be made to interpose legal obstruction against
it. In Kentucky, similar disastrous effects
have been realized, and Governor Magoffin,
in his late message, dwells upqn the subject
in language which fairly portrays the extent
and magnitude of the evils growing out of
legalized incest, and earnestly recommends
the passage of a law utterly prohibiting the
marriage of first cousins. Ile says there are
over 800 idiots and feeble-minded children in
Kentucky, and the number is steadily in
creasing. He attributes the evil chiefly to
the cause above assigned, and while recom
mending the establishment of a School of
Imbeciles, he exhorts the Legislature to pass
an act for the " prevention of marriage
between first cousins," and proceeds to re
" By a single act of the Legislature, you
save in the future an immense amount of suf
fering. You can diminsh, according to the
opinion of those who have fully investigated
this subject, twenty per cent, of the number
of imbeciles, insane, deaf mutes, and blind
children. Render the marriage of cousins
illegal, and a great evil is at once eradicated.
At least from fifteen to twenty per cent. of
all these sufferers are the offspring of cous
ins. A gentleman of science, of learning
and enlarged experience, who has for a long
time paid a great deal of attention to this
subject, recently informed me he never yet
had seen all the children so related, sound
in body and mind. There is always among
some of them some defect, mentally or bodily.
A large number of pupils (so say the teach
ers) in the Deaf and Dumb Asylum are the
children of cousins. At Danville there are
four sisters, deaf and dumb, the children of
cousins; they- have two speaking brothers,
both in delicate health. There is also from
another family there, a sister and brother,
children of cousins. There is another in
stance of sister and brother there, also deaf
and dumb, the children of second cousins,
showing that the defect extends beyond even
the second degree. In the institution at Dan
ville, as in other States, I am informed from
sixteen to 20 per cent, of the pupils are
now, and always have been the children of

arising front a disordered Liver or Stomach.
Every family should have a bottle of these Bitters in
ONE DOSE will instantly relieve a sick stomach.

These Bitters can be obtained at any Druggist's or seller
of Patent Medicines in the United States and Canadas.
Price 75 cents per bottle. See that the signature of C. M.
Jackson is on the wrapper of each bottle.
We do not think a person can evince a more benevolent
trait of character than being moved at the distress and
suffering of others, and furthermore, anxious to do all in
their power to alleviate by every possible means human
suffering. In this view of the case, we do not know how
the humane and benevolent can do an action more in ac
cordance with their philanthropic views, than by calling
the attention of their afflicted friends and acquaintances
to the fact, that Dr. SETH S. !Luta, of 108 Baltimore street,
Baltimore, Md., has discovered a preparation, which is put
up in the form of a pill, that has a specific action for
curing Epilepsy, or falling fits, spasms, cramps, and all
forms of nervous diseases. Among those who have been
permanently cured, we might mention a member of the
family of James 11. Beadle, Huntsville, Alabama; Mr. M.
P. Sledge, Cabin Point, Surry county, Va., and Mr. W. P.
Ligon, Grenade., Missouri. We might go on enumerating
a number of others, until we had entire'y filled up this
column of our paper; but we think we have said sufficient
to satisfy every person that the subject under considera
tion is one of vital importance to every one. Reader I if
you are a well man or woman, and have no need of a rem
edy, perhaps you know some person who is not equally.
blessed as yourself, if so, cut out this notice, and send it
to him or her. It will cost you but little trouble, and
probably it will make you instrumental in curing some
poor, afflicted mortal of that dreadful visitation, Epilepsy
or falling sickness.
Dr. Hance sends his pills by mail, free of postage, to all
parts of the world, on the receipt of a remittance. His
prices are: one box, $3; two, $5 ; twelve, $24. We have
given his address above.
