THE HUNTINGDON GLOBE, A DKNOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, &C.
Huntingdon, Wednesday, April 4, 1860
LOCAL & PERSONAL.
LOCAL BREVITIES.-Our friend Mr. Ben.
Whittaker, a son of Capt. John Whittaker,
of this place, started for California on Tues
day night of last week. We wish him suc
cess in the land of " ye sparkling gold."
A slight fire occurred at the Penn'a Rail
road Depot on Wednesday last. The flames
were checked before any damage was done.
A lad, son of Henry Honstein, was kicked
in the mouth by a mule on Wednesday last,
which rendered him senseless for a time, and
knocked all of his front teeth out. We learn
he is recovering. We only wonder that we
do not have to record such accidents oftener,
for scarcely a day passes but we see boys
playing about and teasing horses, &c. We
trust this will be a warning to them.
The " sixty" girls question has created
quite an excitement in " social circles." We
publish two letters from members of the
" thirty" club to-day. Our friend Trough,
of the Standard, says we can beat Hollidays
burg in numbers, but not in good looks. We
beg leave to differ from you, slightly, friend

Mrs. De Armit, together with most of its con

We had two or three as fine days last week
as we could wish. All nature seemed a glow.
Everything presented a spring-like appear
ance ; the sweet and ever welcome carol of
the pee-wee, the first messenger of spring,
greeted our ears. Oh ! with what delight did
we pause to hearken unto its sweet chirpings ;
the ladies flooded our streets in all their beau
ty and loveliness, and all the world seemed
happy. The.beautiful moonlight nights ad
ded even more loveliness and grandeur to the
coming of the new-born spring; but Sunday,
the first of April, was dark, dreary and wet,
yet there was a charm about it which other
and abler pens have often depicted. We love
spring, for it is then that the trees bud and
flowers bloom. We hail it with joy and glad
The Tyrone Star is not afized star, as our
Standard friend announced last week, but
still lives. We learn from it that a coach
carrying the mail from that place to Lock
Haven, took fire on Friday last, between Lock
Haven and Bellefonte, and was entirely con
sumed, The fire was caused by one of the
passengers, who carelessly threw a lighted
match into the straw in the bottom of the
coach. The passengers escaped unhurt.—
The horses became frightened and ran away,
and before they could be stopped, the coach
was so much burned, that neither mails or
baggage could be saved.
Monday was a stirring time in town with
a number of families, and for a week or two,
a general fixing-up will be the order of the
New Clothing fur Spring and Summer, can
be found at 11. Roman's and M. Gutman &
Co's cheap Clothing Stores. They each have
a fine stock ready for customers.
D. P. Gwiu, Fisher & MoMurtrie, and Ben
jamin Jacobs, have received their new goods.
We would advise all in want of fine, fash
ionable and cheap goods to give them a call.
Our readers will remember that about one
year ago, we noticed a quarrel which took
place between Wm. Sttirtsman, a well known
" plug" in these regions, and John Swivel,
at the ]road Top House, and also of Sturts
man striking one of the officers whilst attempt
ing to arrest him, and afterwards making his
escape. He continued to elude the grasp of
the officers until Saturday last, when he was
arrested by Jailor Shoemaker, in Houck's
blacksmith shop, and taken to the stone man
sion at the head of Smith street, where he
awaits the action of the injured parties.
Brown is now opening a general assortment
of Hardware, Fine Cutlery, Fancy Articles,

Mr. Valentine Crouse has taken possession
of the Franklin House in the Diamond, and
is prepared to give general satisfaction to all
who may give him a call. The Franklin is
located in the business part of the town, and
we have no doubt it will receive a liberal
share of public patronage.

SEir The following quaint comparison is
forcible and true. It would be well if our
young men would note the moral of the terse
passage we quote below : "The tree frog ac
quires the color of whatever it adheres to for
a short time. If it be found on oak it is a
brown color ; on the sycamore he is of a whi
tish brown color ; but when found on the
;rowing corn he is sure to be green. Just so
it is with young men. Their companions
tells us what their characters are ; if they as
sociate with the vulgar, the licentious, and
the profane, then their hearts are already
stained with their guilt and shame, and they
will themselves become alike vicious. The
study of bad books, or the love of wicked
companions is the broadest and most certain
road to ruin that a young man can travel,
and a few and well-directed lessons in either
will lead him on, step by step, to the gate of
destruction. Our moral and physical laws
show how important it is to have proper as.
sociations of every kind, especially in youth.
How dangerous it is to gaze on a picture or
scene that polutes the imaginations or blunts
the moral perceptions I"
DEAR EDITOR :-It seems to be generally
known who is the " enterprising young man,"
that had the boldness and impudence to as
sert, that there were sixty marriageable girls
on Hill street. While upon the other hand it
is equally true, that the fair authoresses of
those two letters which appeared in the Globe
and Union of last week, are "known, honored
and loved of all men."
Having introduced ourselves in true hoosier
style, we proceed with fear and trembling.—
At the time we so boldly asserted that there
were sixty marriageable girls on Mil street,
we did not imagine for one moment, that the
truth of our remark would so readily go home
to the sensitive hearts of " One of the Sixty"
and " One of the Girls on Hill street." But
we were sadly disappointed, and immediately
upon learning the fact, we were forced to ex
claim in the eloquent language of the poet :
The flesh will quiver where the pincers tear,
The blood will flow where the knife is driven."
We do not intend to produce figures to sup
port the truth of our assertion, for any one
possessed of ordinary arithmetical powers,
can easily satisfy themselves upon that point.
Could those two fair nymphs, who have so
sanguinely espoused the cause of "sixty girls,"
imagine how OUR hearts bled for them, upon
learning the state of matrimonial affairs on
Hill street, we feel confident that they would
no longer doubt that we are wanting in that
true affection which feels fur the unhappy
condition of others.
We were too happy to learn, that " ye an
cient borough" could muster at least thirty
young men,—but sorry, that they are not all
How truthfully ha th it been said by one
of old, "While there is life, there is hope."—
Never despair ! For while old lluntingdon
can boast of at least sonic MARRIAGEABLE young
men, you need no longer fear that wonderfirl
period spoken of in a certain BOOK, which
says : " In that day" sixty girls, " shall rise
up and take hold of one man."
We hasten to a conclusion. You ask us
(who take such a moving interest in the Hill
street girls,) to forward our names, so that
you " can exercise some of your leap year
privileges, and wait on us in a body." We
comply with your request cheerfully. Our
address will be found at the bottom of this
lengthy epistle. While we consent to do this,
we ask at least equal candor on your part,
viz : Your address, &c. We also request an
interview, and that you fix the time and place
of meeting ; and as you have so modestly pro
posed, we have no doubt that if the interview
proves agreeable to all the parties concerned,
both individually and collectively, that " One
of the Sixty" and " One of the Girls on Hill
street," can, in the fullness of their warm and
affectionate hearts, adopt the " painfully "
true language of a certain married lady, who,
in a great part attributed her many domestic
troubles, to the irregularities of her husband.
"Well," said the old maid, to whom she was
complaining, " I told you not to marry him,
that he would not make you a good husband."
" lle is not a good one to be sure," replied
Mrs. " but be is better than none."
So we ladies, " apologies" as we are, offer
our feeble services, to ameliorate in part, your
Two OF THE THIRTY.
MR. EDITOR :—On perusing the columns of
your paper my eyes fell upon a trite reply,
bearing a matrimonial caption, and as I have
an interest with the thirty young men of our
illustrious town, it may not be deemed im
proper for me to take a part in the reply.—
NoW to the sixty marriageable ladies of Hill
street, I would say, that I am struck with
amazement at your very low estimate of the
young men of Huntingdon, and if your sen-
timents and feelings continue to incline this
way, you may depend upon it that your num
ber will not diminish very fast. No, rather
augment, unless you migrate to some more
marriageable clime; and that we all would
sadly deplore ; old as well as young. No,
no, we had much rather you would grow up
old maids, than to be robbed of the benign in
fluence that you throw around us. Ladies,
can you sincerely say that this is the reason
why you remain unmarried, because our
morals are at a very low ebb ? Do you know
why the fox said sour grapes ?

CORRESPONDENCE OF THE GLOBE.
A Ride Over the Alleghenies on Horse-
MR. EDITOR :--15a this age of improvement,
when men send their letters by lightning, and
travel by steam, to cross the rock-ribbed,
pine-clad Alleghenies on horseback, is some
thing of the primitive and romantic, especial
ly when the storm king is on a March jour
ney. Being somewhat of a cosmopolite, and
having occasion in my perigrinations, to cross
the old back bone of Pennsylvania, I sad
dled my pony in the town of Phillipsburg—
more about this place hereafter—tied him to
a post until I would equip for the journey—
not forgetting to put the hitching strap
through the bit rings. Pony concluded, in
my absence, to try a tight rope performance.
Braced front feet, right side motion, left side
motion, back pull, double bit, compressed
jaw—poor performance—no go—gives that
up and bites post. I pulled on overcoat and
gloves, mounted and took the pike for Tyrone
City, Blair co., Pa. Up and still up the
mountain I rode. Trees on this hand, trees
on that hand ; cliffs above, ravines below.—
Mr. Editor, did you ever see tai trees? Well
if you have not, you have read Longfellow's
Hiawatha. He must had some of these old
mountain giants in view when he wrote about
" the land of pine trees." You look up to
see the top, and at the first effort you get a
sight of the first limbs ; you then throw back
your head and look again. This time if your
eye sight is good, you catch a glimpse of the
top, far in the distance. Passing along I no
ticed several beautiful springs bubbling out
by the road side. I wish you could just see
them—the white sand rolling up, and sink
ing in gentle waves beneath the crystal
stream that flows down the mountain. When
I had gone a few miles, I came upon one of
those institutions so annoying to a traveler on
a cold day—a toll gate. The keeper, kind
soul, knowing the poverty of an itinerant,
chalked my hat, and I went on my way re
joicing. About noon, I came to the top of the
mountain, and stopped to replenish the inner
man, at a house kept by Richard Copeland.
Had my horse put away, and seated myself
by the stove to await the sound of the dinner
bell—a sound peculiarly gratifying to a hun
gry traveler. Presently a couple of rough
looking customers came in, stepped up to the
bar, and looked wistfully at the old black
bottle. Richard seemed to understand, and
handed it over. Soon a very liberal portion
of the fiery contents went fairly hissing
down their throats. Quickly as possible, they
filled their glasses with water and poured that
down after "old whiskey." I observed when
they turned around, that there were large
tears standing in their eyes. Now, Mr. Edi
tor, I have read about Jacob crying when he
kissed his beautiful Rachael, and I would
like very much to know if kissing old king
alcohol, alias the devil, produces the same ef
fect. Soon the sound harmonious, from the
iron-tongued musician, fell upon my ear; tel
ling the pleasing story that dinner was ready.
I must say the dinner did honor to mine
host and his worthy help-meet. We had a
fresh ham nicely roasted, potatoes, corn cakes,
well flavored coffee, good bread and cakes ;
also fruit and pies for desert. As my fore
noon's ride had given me a good appetite, I,
with others, did " ample justice to the sub
ject." Should any of your readers come to
the mountain in the summer for whortle ber
ries, you cannot find a better place to get
your dinner than at old Richard's. But don't
take any of his " tangle-foot," for if you do,
you will get lost among the mountains ; and
if the rattle snakes did not know you had
been drinking whiskey, they might bite you.
Having finished my dinner, I was soon in my
saddle and on my way down the mountain.
Getting cold, I concluded to lead my colt and
walk a piece. Just as I dismounted, pony
became frightened and jumped over the bank
backward. Fell six or seven feet among the
brush, jumped to her feet and tried to get up
on the road. Too steep, fell again; sprang up
again, got on the road, worse scared than
hurt. Hope that lesson may prove benefi
cial. Verily, " the way of the transgressor
But I see my letter is getting too long.—
Suffice it to say that I arrived in Tyrone in
good time, having had, taking all things into
consideration, rather a pleasant ride over the

BEAUTIFUL, BUT TRUE.
A few days since, 31r. Jas. 11. Beadle, of Huntsville, Al
abama, called on us and gave us permission to publish for
the benefit of suffering humanity, the astonishing cure
which had been effected in the case of his wife by the use
of Dr. Hance's Vegetable Epileptic Pills. He informed us,
that at the time his wife commenced using the medicine,
her system was so entirely prostrated, by the number of
spasms she bad undergone, as to reduce her weight to 100
lbs. Since she has been taking the pills, she has entirely
got over the spasms and has gained in weight and bodily
health. She now weighs at least 200 lbs., and declares she
is in better enjoyment of health than ever before in her
life. Mr. Beadle also related the case of Mr. Harrison
Lightfoot of the same town, wino has been entirely cured
of the worst form of Epilepsy by these same pills. Mr.
Lightfoot's case was so bad that he never passed a week
without having an attack, often falling down in the street.
Ile has not had an attack for more than a year. Mr. Bea
dle thinks that if the pills ever fail in curing a case, it is
for the want of a proper persevefance on the part of the
person in taking them, as ho feels assured from observa
tion in the case of his wife,
that if they arc taken for a
sufficient length of time, they will cure any case. Sent to
