Rev. S. L. M. Conser, preached his first
sermon in the Methodist Church of this place,
on Sunday morning last. Judging from his

logician and an able minister.
Two slight fires occurred in the back streets
last week. Fortunately, they were discover

MArn.ntosur..—Last week we noticed the
fact of there being sixty marriageable ladies
on llill street. A lady friend, who signs her
self " One of the Sixty," sends us the follow
ing, which we fully concur in—with one ex
ception. She says "some enterprising young
man," &c.; but we would have the lady re
member that we said " a friend of ours," &c.
It might have been a lady friend, or it might
not, who knows; however, we'll not quarrel
about that. It would be well if some of our
young men would take the remarks of the
lady home to themselves, for she tells more
truth than is generally contained in so many
lines. But hear her, she talks like ri book :
MR. EDITOR.—Some enterprising young
man has taken the trouble to count the mar
riageable girls on Hill street, and declares
their number to be sixty. With these we
have nothing to do, we are perfectly satisfied
to class ourselves among them. It is the
sterner sex we have to deal with.
In our little town we muster some thirty
young men. We do not say that all of this
number are not MARRIAGEABLE, but how many
would make desirable companions for life, is
a question not so easily answered. We ask
this simple question, How many of these
sixty girls would have the courage, boldness,
strength of mind and missionary or self-sac
rificing spirit, to undertake the reformation
of some of these so styled "Lords of Crea
tion ? Would it not require some nerve ?
In conclusion, will the young man who
takes such a moving interest in the Hill street
girls, please forward his name, so that we
can exercise our leap year privileges, and
wait on him in a body, (and if the height of
his matrimonial desires does not culminate in
a fortune rather than a lady,) see what capi
tal he considers necessary to taking a part
ner-sour in his firm. With one voice, we
sixty girls declare ourselves for the " Union."
ONE OF THE SIXTY.
MR. LEWIS has been stated that Rev.
S. H. Reid will be a candidate for the office
of County Superintendent the next term.—
Again, it is reported that be is not and will
not be ; and that other parties are making
use of his name for effect. Will you tell us
how this is?
We think we have some good material for
the office in Morris, but if Mr. Reid will be a
candidate, he will find no competitors in this
corner. Mr. Reid has recently been a teach
er of a Seminary in this township, and he
was successful. Would not he be the man
for the present situation of affairs, as there is
much discord at work ? Moßais.
NOTE.—In answer to the above we will say,
Mr. Reid has consented to let his name be
used by his friends, and, if elected, he will
give his time and attention to the school in
Murtomt.--Willia.m Gates, son of Peter
Gates, was arrested at Petersburg and brought
to this place on Saturday last, and lodged in
jail for killing a man (whose name we did not
learn,) in Woodberry township, Bedford co.,
one day last week. The facts of the case are
not known, but Gates says they were fighting,
when lie picked up a stone and struck his ad
versary somewhere about the head or face,
which caused his death a short time after.—
When further developments of the case have
been made known, we will advise our readers
of the fact.
TEACHER'S EXAMINATION.-AH examina
tion of teachers—applicants for schools in this
borough, will be held at the public school
house on Saturday next.
BROICE JAIL.- - William Gates, (whom we
notice in another place,) Doctor Thomas,
Black from Mill Creek, and a fellow
from above McAlevy's Fort, made their es
cape from the jail, on Monday night, by
boring through the ceiling of their room
with an auger, by means of which they es
caped to the garret, then through the trap
door, to the roof and from the roof to the wall,
where they jumped to the ground and made
good their escape. Up to the time of going to
press, no traces of the fugitives have been
BOROUGH ELECTION.—On next Monday the
annual borough election will be held. One
burgess, three councilmen, two supervisors,
and a high constable are to be chosen. If
our citizens desire competent and efficient of
ficers, let them see that such men are placed
upon the ticket. It is too late to complain
after the election is over.
LOCAL CO .1Z 11 E 2 P 0 .LV D E .4V C E
DEAR GLOBE :—Local news at present are
scarce, in consequence of which we are
obliged to adopt the adage that " brevity is
the soul of wit."
Tho educational spirit of this township is
still moving forward. Its schools are sup
plied with proficient teachers, who, by indus
try and timely success, have won not only the
esteem and approbation of their patrons, but
of the friends of learning in general. And
we could hail with gladness the time when
the chain that should link in happy union
the:parents and teachers of our common coun
try shall be complete. In union there is
strength, and in co-operation success.
Our spring election was attended by an
usual excitement ; however, no fighting ex
cept by that unruly member of which Solo
mon speaks. The citizens rallied round the
polls to elect good school directors, which is
a certain indication of their literary fidelity-
The " Ladies's Social Circle," of Mechan
icsville, gave, on Monday evening last, anoth
er public entertainment. The whole perfor
mance was creditable and highly interesting,
at the close of which, Mr. Anderson, teacher
of :Mechanicsville school, favored us with an
eloquent and timely lecture, (subject; Lan
guage,) for which he received the warmest
thanks of the " Circle." We understand
that the ladies are about to solicit a copy of
said lecture for publication, and we hope
that Mr. Anderson will not decline their re-
We feel under obligations to the " Circle "
for the privilege granted us from time to time, of
attending their select performances ; and can
truly say that we are proud to see them man
ifest such an enterprising spirit and such an
tiring zeal in the acquisition of social quali
ties and literary accomplishments. A neg
lect to cultivate such qualities has, certainly,
hitherto, been a great detriment to society.—
And since all nature combines to impress
upon us the fact that we are designed to be
intellectual, social and happy, why not meet
the design of our creation ? why not culti
vate a spirit of unaffected and social friend
ship, and acquire learning sanctified by the
presence and spirit of piety ? Remember
that " he only lives in fame who dies in vir
tue's cause." Let this be accomplished, and
the future will reveal a revolution in society
and a complete triumph in literature.
What Will Our Delegates Do ?
John B. Bratton, Esq., the able editor of
the Carlisle Volunteer, a paper that has con
sistently defended the course of the National
Administration, in an article calling the at
tention of his readers to the speech of Judge
Douglas, says :
"Speaking of Judge Douglas, reminds us
that the National Convention is rapidly ap
proaching, when a candidate for the Presi
dency is to be selected. Judge Douglas will
be warmly urged for the nomination by his
thousands of enthusiastic friends. What the
Pennsylvania delegation will do at Charles
ton, we know not. A number of the dele
gates we know to be Douglas men ; some are
for Mr. Breckenridge, Gen. Lane, and oth
ers. If, however, the delegates from this
State find when they arrive at Charleston, that
Judge Douglas is the choice of the Western,
the New England and nearly all time Northern,
as well as a number of the Southern States,
it will be their duty to fall in with the pre
vailing sentiment, and give him the vote of
the State. We sincerely hope the delegates
from Pennsylvania (all of whom are honor
able men and good Democrats) will, on taking
their seats in the National Convention, for
get all former disputes, and do the best They
can for The party. Let them imitate the ex
ample of the Reading Convention, and all
will be well. So mote it be."
AN ITEM - or PomTicAr, Llisronv.—lion. Or
lando B. Ficklin, M. C.. from Illinois, in a
letter written to Mr. Colquitt, of Georgia,
thus alludes to an item of political history :
" At the Cincinnati Convention, in 1856, the
Hon. Jacob Thompson, Secretary of the In
terior, presented to the Committee , on Reso
lutions a resolution announcing the doctrine
that the Constitution carried slavery into the
Territories, which, after discussion, was re
jected. Some of the members of the com
mittee from the South, though holding that
doctrine themselves, took the ground that, as
they had been beaten upon it at home, it was
not proper or generous to attempt to force it
upon the free States ; and, instead, the com
mittee embodied in the platform the doctrine
of the Kansas-Nebraska Bill of 'non-inter
ference by Congress with slavery in State
and Territory or in the District of Columbia,
as embodying the only true solution of the

REASON AND COMMON SENSE.
Our readers may remember we have on several occa
sions spoken in very eulogistic terms of a preparation
which Pr. SETH S. lIANCE, of 108 Baltimore street, Balti
more, Md., has discovered for the cure of Epileptic Fits.
Now, in doing so, we have been actuated by the very best
motives, viz: the alleviation of human suffering. From
circumstances which have lately come to our knowledge,
we fear there is a certain class of persons who are not dis
posed to try this remedy in a common sense manner. We
allude to the fact of selecting a particular case in a town
where perhaps there are six or eight cases, and trying it
on one case. Now, perhaps the case selected might be the
only one of the whole number that it would not cure.—
This is neither doing themselves nor the medicine justice.
If a dozen per,ons were stricken down with cholera in
one town or neighborhood, would they all send for a phy
sician, or would only one employ him, and wait and see if
lie cured the first patient? That plan of procedure would
lie most absurd. So in the case of Dr. llanee's remedy,
every one who has Fits should try it for a reasonable
length of time. It will not cure in a day or a week, noth
ing, worth doing can be accomplished at once. What is
easily done, is as easily undone. The growth of time is
enduring. From the most respectable testimony we have
examined, we feel assured that by a proper perseverance
in this remedy, nine cases of Epilepsy out of ten may be
cured. The Pills are sent by mail free of postage to any
part of the world. Price: one box $3; two $5; twelve
$24. You will find the address above.
