THE HUNTINGDON GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOMD TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, &C.
Huntingdon, Wednesday, Feb. 29, 1860
CORRESPONDENCE OF THE GLOBE.
Letter from our Ex-Reporter.
PITTSBURGH Feb. 27, 1860
Mit: EDITOR :—Many moons have waxed
and waned since I last wrote you over the
non de plume of Ex-Reporter, and doubtless,
many of your readers suppose that I have
forgotten you entirely. But not so. When
.1 started from home, I secretly resolved that
I would write you a letter whilst in this city,
and now I will endeavor, as far as my ability
extends, to execute my purpose.
I arrived-here at 2 o'clock, Saturday morn
ing. and plat up at the Mansion House, one
of the best Hotels in the city, and under the
auspices of George Aurentz, Esq., a clever,
and obliging gentleman, who spares no pains
to make his guests feel perfectly at home,
and when combined with the attention of his
gentlemanly clerks, no one can feel otherwise.
His table is of the very best, and is furnished
with almost every luxury the market affords.
Should any of your friends hare occasion to
visit this place, I would recommend to their
favorable consideration the Mansion House.
Since I first left Pittsburgh—almost eigh
teen months ago—many changes have taken
place, passenger railways introduced and in
active operation, whole blocks of houses have
been torn down and others erected in their
stead. One of the finest buildings I ever
saw, is one erected on Fifth street, between
Wood and Market, where the Second Presby
terian Church used to stand. The building
is five stories high, and the front is one mass
of iron. It is occupied by almOst innumera
ble business houses of almost every kind,
from top to bottom.
Business is stagnant here at present.
Several large establishments are only run
ning about one-third of the time—just enough
to keep the thing moving. However, the
operatives appear to be in pretty good spir
its, and inform me that they feel pretty sure
that business will resume its former activity
in the Spring. Such at least appears to be
the general impression.
There appears to be a split in the People's
Party of this city, in regard to the Governor
ship and their nominee. The Commercial
Journal, a rampant Opposition paper, refuses
to support Andrew G. Curtin, the nominee of
the late State Convention which net at Har
risburg on the 22nd, while the (Prz , 2l/e, an
other of the same stamp, goes in for him
body and breeehes. They are talking very
cross to each other about it. The Opposi
tion, in the city, as far as I can learn, have
two favorites for the Presidency—Cameron
and Seward. Some say Cameron will be the
nominee, while others assert he will not
stand a ghost of a chance. Others again
say they have no particular choice. Doug
las stock is advancing every clay. The Post,
until lately, a strong Administration paper,
says that Douglas will be the Charleston
nominee, without a doubt. Douglas is de
cidedly the man of the times, and should he
fail at Charleston (which we are not at all
afraid of) the Democracy of this country will
undoubtedly be thrown out of power and
position for the nest four years. No man in
the Democratic ranks can be elected so easily
as Stephen A. Douglas. lie holds a place
in the affections of every true Democrat, no
other man in the country dare hope to gain.
Ile is the only true conservative Democrat
named in connection with the Presidency,
and should the Charleston Delegation do
their duty, he will be nominated on the second
without a doubt. With him as their
standard-bearer, the Democracy are certain
of a triumphant success, without him, they
are sure of an ig,nominous and disastrous
WAIMEN COUNTY, 111., Feb. 22, 1860
DEAR a LOBE have thought for some
time past, of writing to you, as you have no
correspondent about here I believe. I have
been in this State about four years, and have
seen the good times as it was at first when I
came, and the hard times these last two years.
Times are a little better now than for a couple
of years, and money seems to be a little plen
tier, still it is very scarce, especially with
some who have pressing debts to pay. Wheat
is now worth one dollar per bushel at the
Mississippi river, and corn abont3o cents ; the
market at the Railroad, is not quite so good.
There is an immense quantity of corn in the
country yet for sale, and a great deal has al
ready been marketed. I expect it will he
more than the above price before another
crop comes in. Seine are holding theirs for
the summer market.
There is some political talk out here, about
the approaching campaign. The voice of the
Illinois Democracy seems to be unanimously
for Stephen A. Douglas as the best candidate
for the Presidency. I think his chances for
nomination by the Charleston Convention
seems to be very good, at least I hope it may
be the case.
The weather here this winter, has been ex
tremely cold nearly all the time, till within
the last few weeks it has not been quite so
cold. There was a couple of times that the
thermometer was as low as 20 degrees below
zero. There was snow part of the time—but
snow as a general thing, never lies very long
here at a time, so we never have very good
sledding, and I have never seen more than
one sleigh since I came 'West.
A man was recently shot and killed by a
woman in Oquawka, he was attempting to
enter her house through a window, when she
ordered him to go hack, he kept on trying, to
climb in when she shot him, killing him in
stantly. I guess it was rather a bad charac
ter that the house bore, it is little difference
—the woman gave herself up.
The weather seems mild these last two days
with a prospect of an early spring.
F. T. P.
The friends of the present Common School
System have reason to congratulate them
selves for the firmness, the unwavering fidel
ity, manifested by successive Executives, the
heads of the School Department; and for
the achievements won by their zealous la
bors. For the last few years the Governors
and State Superintendents seem to have been
the men for the times. Our first acquain
tance in The Department was with IL L.
Dieffenbaugh, the present Dept. See. of the
Conmonwealth ; and_ we shall never forget
the anxiety, the earnest sincerity with which
he seemed - to lOok forward to the success of
the System. Without the pleasure of his
personal acquaintance, we hope and we be
lieve there is a better day coming for him.
Gov. Pollock, and his excellency, Gov.
Packer, have considered their official duties
with no careless indifference. In the midst
of tumult their messages have gone before
the public. From our stand-point on the
beach they have - appeared like columns of
strength with the waves of tumult and pop
ular prejudices drifting around them. H. C.
Hickok, the present State Supt., too, has had
an eventful time in probably the most trying
era, of the System's history. Our observation
has been closely fixed upon the movements
of the Department during his official term.
That term is now drawing to a close. Mr.
Hickok will leave his present position, and
carry with him the confidence, esteem and
gratitude of the educational men, and a host
of friends throughout the State. With an
unusual zeal, and a conservative policy in
his course, the-system has grown into favor.
Mr. Hickok is a good public speaker : his
earnestness and eloquence has sustained him
in positions that few of his predecessors have
been necessitated to meet. If Gov. Packer
would think proper to re-nominate him, the
Governor's friends in this county would be
satisfied with the result.
A Terrible Winter's Journey
[Prom the St. Paul Mianesotian and Times, Feb. 10.1
Mr. Anthony, one of the party who was
lost on the prairie, and whose sufferings are
depicted below by the editor of the Nor'
Wester, published at the Red River Settle
ment, called upon us yesterday. The fol
lowing account is taken from the Nor' Wes
ter, the second number of which lies before
Never have we met with a more sad and
melancholy narrative than that which it is
our painful duty this week to recount. The
boiler of the Anson Northrup not being in a
fit state to commence work in the spring, the
Messrs. Burbank, of St. Paul, resolved to
send over to Fort Garry, during the winter,
a competent person to examine it ; it was ac
cordingly arranged that he should go to
Georgetown, a newly formed station at the
mouth of Buffalo river, about 200 miles from
here, and that Governor Mactavish should de
spatch a party thither to bring him on to the
The engineer, it would seem, had arrived
at Georgetown somewhat sooner _ than the
date fixed upon, and having waited there a
few days, he grew impatient at the delay, and
requested to be sent on. Mr. Mackenzie, the
young gentleman in charge of the station, de
layed a little longer, and then started with
two others, besides the engineer, make the
grave mistake of taking mules instead of
dogs. None of them had traveled the route
and, of course, could not possess a
correct knowledge of the road or the dis
Mr. Mackenzie said it was five or six days'
journey, and provided supplies accordingly.
On Friday, December 23d, they started, go
ing eastward, in order to fall in with the
trail from Crow Wing. They had not been
out longer than two or three days when the
mules began to "give up!' They then felt
that they could not reach their destination in
the tittle anticipated ; and what was worse,
that their provisions would fail them. A
feeling of incipient despair crept over them.
here they were hopeless, in the heart of a
vast dreary, unknown prairie, in a cold week
of the black month of December, far beyond
the reach of all sympathy and aid, with star
vation staring them in the face—their condi
tion was one of desperation. On Thursday
the 29th, Mr. Mackenzie resolved to start
ahead and try, by a bold effort, to reach Pem
bina, and send back succor to his compan
ions. The engineer accompanied him. The
d a y W as cold and stormy, and a bitter blast
Coon the North drifted the snow in their faces
and drove them back. They all camped to
gether that night near Pine river, about fifty
miles from Pembina. In the morning the
brave hearted Mackenzie started again—star
ted never to return, and, alas I never to reach
This time he was alone. He seemed to
have a presentiment that he would not get
through, and he named David Tait, the man
who had been with him at Georgetown, a
present of his gun, in case that he had him
self no further need for it. He wore but one
thin coat, and was lightly clad throughout
wishing to be as little burdened with clothes
as possible, as he intended to run most of the
way. A hit of pcmican, the size of his fi s t,
was -all the food the party could supply. Ile
put that into his pocket, provided himself
with matches, and shook hands onee,more.—
It was a last sad farewell ! Had 14-reached
Pembina in due time, his companions would
have received assistance on Saturday night
or Sunday morning. Sunday morning pas
sed, however, and Sunday night, ton, without
bringing any help. Their worst forebodings
were now confirmed, and the feeling of pain
ful suspense gave way to a feeling of desper
ation. On Monday morning David Tait pushed
ahead, and by great exertion he succeeded in
reaching Pembina the same evening. A brief
inquiry confirmed his worst apprehensions—
Mr. Mackenzie had not been there.
Mr. Rolette at once provided two men
with every requisite and sent them away,
Tate accompanying them. They fell in with
the remnant of the party shortly after mid
night on Tuesday, and after supplying their
urgent needs they went off in search of the
ill-fated Mackenzie. They sought him in
vain all that day and night, and on Wednes
day they came upon traces which brought
them to his corpse. After leaving his com
panions he seemed to have followed the trail
for a considerable distance, and then to have
lost his way. Night came upon him, and,
bewildered by the growing darkness and the
drifting snow, he made towards a clump of
trees, with the intention probably of kindle
ing a fire. If such was his object, he seems
to have been unable to accomplish it ; and
his beaten track shows that to keep himself
from freezing he had spent the hours of that
lonesome night in running around in a cir
cle. With the break of day, he started again
across the trackless waste, every step that he
took carrying him further from the spot
which he was straining every nerve to reach.
Another weary day of fruitless travel was
followed by a second night more dreary even
than the first. Again he had managed to
stave off what he must have felt to have been
the hour of his dissolution by long hours of
ceasless activity. A third day's journey
brought him towards Lae des Roseaux. Here
he attempted to run around as before. But
the strength and courage which had hereto
fore sustained him, now forsook him.
lie dragged his tired footsteps through the
loose snow towards a tree, from which he
plucked a branch and hung thereon a shred
of his tattered coat as a signal to mark his
dismal resting place ; he next tore off an
other branch of the same tree, which ho
placed as t pillow for his cold bed, and then
laid upon it his weary head and died. The
powerful body and determined spirit which
had so long braved the merciless storm, in
spite of hunger and fatigue, had at last to
succumb l His right hand was on his heart,
and his left hung by his side, firmly holding
a compass. The body gave indications of
having undergone intense suffering. Some
portions of it had been frozen and thawed
many times in succession before death inter
vened and released it from further anguish.
Meanwhile James McKay had been des
patched to Georgetown to bring on the engi
neer. But, as already stated, the hapless
party had left before his arrival. They had
taken.different roads, and thus he had missed
The remains of the deceased were brought
b Pembina, on Thursday week, and to Fort
Garry on the following day. The body con
tinued there until yesterday, when it was
conveyed to St. Andrews, and interred side
by side with Mr. Mackenzie's father and

SAD AFFAIR-A WOMAN THROWS HER
CHILD OVERBOARD FROM A STEAMBOAT AND
JUMPS AFTER IT.-A melancholy affair oc
curred on board the steamer Fanny Bullitt,
during her trial-trip from New Orleans to this
port. Among the deck passengers were a
woman and her child, a boy of about two and
a half years of age, who had taken passage
at New Orleans for Louisville. The woman
had recently been separated from her hus
band, and the circumstance seemed to weigh
on her mind to such an extent at times, that
she was in a frenzy of excitement. What
were the reasons for the separation could not
be ascertained, but the woman was well
dressed, as was also the child, and she was
evidently an American. While the boat was
a short distance above Helena, on Tuesday,
the woman was observed standing on the
guard of the boat, holding her little son by
the hand, gazing into the muddy waters of
the stream with an anxious look. As she
seemed to be quiet, but little attention was
paid her. All of a sudden she was observed
to clasp her child in her arms, and after kiss
ing it frantically and glancing upward, threw
the little fellow into the river and jumped
after him. The boat was promptly stopped,
the yawl launched, manned, and started after
the unhappy mother and her child. After
considerable effort they were rescued in a
senseless condition and taken on board. The
ladies in the cabin took them in charge, and
endeavored to restore them to consciousness.
As regards the little boy they succeeded, but
all efforts to revive the poor mother were un
availing—her spirit had fled ! A_ purse was
made up for the little boy by the gentlemen on
board, and it was said that Captain Dunham
would adopt him as his own. All inquiries
as to the name of the unfortunate woman
were fruitless. Her body was taken on to
Louisville."—Menzphis Avalanche, 91/i.
SPITEFUL REVENGE.—The following singu
lar occurrence is rumored as having taken
place within the last few days : A young
man residing in town, who has been a regu
lar visitant at the residence of a young lady
citizen, and whose attendance upon the same
was understood as a prelude to an eventful
proposal, was sitting by her side at the fami
ly tea-table on a late evening, when during
the course- of a rather jovial conversation,
the mother of the lady turned upon him with
the smiling question: " When are you and
M-- going to get married ?" The gentle
men responded, with an appearance of great
astonishment, that ho had never entertained
any such intention, and proceeded to joke
upon the idea. The young lady immediately
arose without a word, and went into a room
adjoining, from whence she shortly returned,
with a bottle of vitriol in her hand, and with
out a sylable or gesture of warning, dashed
the terrible fluid into the unsuspecting face
of him whom she had supposed her lover,
shockingly disfiguring his features, instant
ly destroying the sight of one eye, and inju
ring its fellow hopelessly. This most bar
barous result of a lover's disappointment is,
we think, without a modern equivalent.
Beffalo Courier, Feb. 1.
BADLY SOLD. —A little affair happened the
other day which is too good to be lost. Mr.
A. called on one of our farmerP., and asked
him the price of oats, and was informed that
they were worth 35 cents per bushel. He
agreed to pay 40 cents on condition that he
should be permitted to tramp them in the
half bushel. To secure the bargain he paid
for twelve bushels, and the next day took his
wagon and went after them. The farmer
filled the half bushel, after which Mr. A.
got in and gave therma most vigorous tramp
ing, contracting their proportions considera
bly: The farmer thereupon emptied the oats
into the bag without filling up the measure.
Mr. A. raved, but it was no use, the farmer
had complied with his part of the agreement.
and as an evidence, told Mr. A. after he had
measured the oats, ho might tramp thorn all
day.—Tersey Shore Republican.
SECESSION Or A SPIRITUALIST.--The Spring
field Republican, in an article upon " Man
ifestations" and " Phenomena," says :
" Perhaps the most serioits blow that
Spiritualism has received, is the defection of
Rev. T. L. 'Harris, lately the inspired poet of
the new movement in this country, now a
Swedenborgian minister, and at present lec
turing against spiritualism in England. He
does not deny the fact of possession, by
spirits, but thinks they are spirits of a low
order, both in intellect and virtue; that they
are of the same class with the demons spo- .
ken of in the New Testament, and that they
pass themselves for the spirits of the friends
of those consulting them, or of distinguished
men, in order the better to deceive and ac
complish their destructive purposes. The
effect of this possession Mr. Harris says he
has felt in his own mind and person, and
he describes it as most fearful. Only a few
years ago it had such a hold of him that it
gave a fixed rigidity to his muscles, and a
terrible unearthly expression to his coun
tenance. Ile had known many excellent and
amiable persons under this influence to have
their energies crushed, lose their appetites,
be deprived of sleep, find their self control
destroyed, and their bodies wasting away
and their mind enfeebled, as if under some
fell disease. Mr. Harris gave a shocking ac
count of the moral influence of the doctrine
he has just abandoned, and we have no
doubt he greatly exaggerates it, with the zeal
natural to a new convert."
