LOCAL & PERSONAL.
DEATH FROM MATCHES.—Parents should
take care to prevent their infant children
from meddling with 'Lucifer matches, as we
are constantly informed by our exchanges of
deaths occurring in consequence. As sure
as they get hold of a match, they invariably
put the dipped end in their mouth, and the
phosphorescent matter carries death wherev
er it touches inside the body. The, last in
stance of its fatal effects is that of a little girl
in Johnstown, who died the other day, after
eating the tops of two or three matches.—
Parents cannot be too careful in this partic

DONATION, Feb. 20th, '6O
MR. EDITOR :—Having seen communica
tions from almost all parts of the county, I
have concluded to write you a few lines to
let you know that we are not froze up yet.
Donation, situated half way from Hunting
don to Innisville, consists of one dwelling
house, a blacksmith shop, store, post office
and school house—the last mentioned being
the best in the township, and as good as there
is in the county. The school, at this place,
is in charge of J. A. Livingston. There are
also two other schools in this township
which are taught by Messrs. Stewart and
White, who are gentlemen capable of teach
ing. I paid a visit to Mr. White's school,
and, in justice to him and his scholars, must
say that I was never in a school where there
was as good order, or where the scholars ap
peared to feel as much interest in the exer
cises. Times are rather brisk this Winter.
We have meetings four and five nights of
each week of different kinds, and, in general,
they are attended by large and well-behaved
audiences. The singing class, of this place,
under the instructions of Mr. E. J. Green, is
making very good progress. Mr. Green is a
young man who understands his business,
and, by practice, will make an excellent
teacher. There will be a concert at this
place about the first of March.
CHRONICLES, CHAPTER I.
And it came to pass that in the reign of
John the third, there was established in the
pine and oak country a singing school, where
all the young people were wont to meet to
mingle their voices one with another.
And so it happened that at one of these
meetings, two young damsels were present,
from the country of much corn, (Corn-hill,)
and they were fair to look upon, and pleased
the eyes of two young men of the pine and
oak country, so much that when the singing
was over they approached near them, and
said, may we accompany you even into your
own country, and the damsels replied, yea,
and you shall dwell with us, and they ac
But in journeying from one country to the
other, it became necessary for them to ascend
the mount which stands eastward of the pine
. and oak country.
And it so happened, that it was very icy,
and difficult to ascend, so much so, that half
the ascent had to be made on the hands and
After sojourning with the fair damsels for
some time, the young men thought of their
own country, and started on their journey to
And when they had come to the top of the
mount, they were troubled ; for the descent
was even worse than the ascent, and had to
be performed mostly on the back.
The king has since sent forth a decree,
that none of his subjects shall be permitted
to enter the country of much corn.
And the young men who accompanied the
damsels, do sorrow, on account of not being
allowed to return again with the fair ones to
their own country. Yours, &c.,
The undersigned appointed to distribute the bal
ance in the hands of Jane Wilson, Administmtrix of Sam
uel Henry, late of Barree township, dec'd, will attend to
the duties of his appointment at his office, in the borough
of Huntingdon, on Tuesday, the _'Bth of February, at one
o'clock, P. M., at which_ time and place all persons having
claims upon said fund, are required to present the same to
the Auditor, calm debarred from coming in on said fund.

CAN EPILEPSY BE CURED:
We think the following letter from a respectable citizen

doubts from every unbiased mind:
GRENADA, Miss., June 5, 1555.
Dr. Seth. S. rliyuce, Baltimore, Md.—Dear Sir: I take
great pleasure in relating a case of spasms or fits, cured
by your invaluable Pills. My brother, J. J. Ligon, has
long been afflicted with this awful disease, He was first
attacked while quite young. Ile would have one or two
spasms at one attack at first; but as he grew older, they
seemed to increase likewise. Up to the time he commen
ced taking your Pills, he had them very often and quite
severe, prostrating him body and mind. His mind had
suffered seriously ; but now, I am happy to say. ho is cured
of those fits. Ile has enjoyed fine 'width for the last five
months past. Iris mind has also returned to its original
sprightliness. All this 1 take great pleasure in communi
cating, as it may be the means of directing others to the
remedy that will cure them. Yours respectfully, &c.,
No person who is suffering from Fits or Spasms, should
neglect sending to Dr. Hance, after this, for a supply of
his inestimable medicine. His prices are as follows: one
box $3; two $5; twelve s24—sent by mail free, on the re
ceipt of a remittance. Address SET/I S. HANCE, 10S Balti

To THE PRESIDENT OF THE PENNSYLVANIA AGRICULTURAL
SOCIETY :—The subscribers, your committee to examine the
contents of a Salamander Safe, of Evans & Watson, after
being exposed to a strong fire on the Fair Grounds for eight
hours. respectfully represent—
That after seven cords of oak wood and three of pine
had been consumed around the Safe, it was opened in the
presence of the committee, and the contents taken out, a
little warmed, but not even scorched.
Several Silver Medals heretofore received by the manu
facturers, and a large quantity of documents were in the
Safe. and came out entirely uninjured.
The experiment satisfied US of the capacity of Safes of
this kind to protect contents from any lire to which they
may be exposed.

Gentie,num, :—The Salamander Fire• Proof Safe of your
manufacture, purchased by us from your Agent, Ferris &
Garrett, of our city, some nine months ago, was severely
tried by burglars last Saturday night, and although they
had a sledge hammer, cold chisels, drill and gunpowder,
they did not succeed in opening the Safe. The lock being
one of "Hall's Patent Powder•proof," they could not get
the powder into it, but drilled a hole in the lower panel
and forced in a large charge, which was ignited, and al
though the door, inside and out, showed the explosion not
to have beer a small one, it was not forced open. We sup
pose they were the greater part of the night at work on
it. We are much gratified at the result of the attempt to
enter it, and if the above facts are of any service, you aro
at liberty to use them. Yours, truly,.

GREAT FIRE!—ANOTHER TRIUMPH!!
KNOXVILLE, Tennessee. March 13th, 1859.
Messrs. EVAN'S & WATSON, Philadelphia:
Gentlemen—lt affords me great pleasure to say to you
that the Salamander Safe which I purchased of you in
February, 1858, proved to be what you recommended it—
a sure protection from fire. My storehouse, together with
several others. was burned to the ground in March last.—
The Safe fell through into the cellar, and was exposed to
intense heat for six or eight hours, and when It was taken
from the reins and opened, all it: contents where found to
be in a perfect state, the books and the papers not being

The history of "IIOOFLAND'S GERMAN BIT
-1.E13:_,," 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 Iloolland'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 aro sick, and
require a medicine, try these Bitters.
These Bitters are prepared and sold by Dr. C. M, dick
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,
at 75 cents per bottle. See that, the signature of C. M.
Jackson is on the wrapper of each bottle.
