THE HUNTINGDON GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, &C.
Huntingdon, Wednesday, June 20, 1860
LOCAL (Ye PERSONAL.
THE STOLEN JEWELRY BROUGHT TO LIGHT.
—On Friday evening last, while a number of
boys were bathing in the mill race, above town,
one of them felt something sharp pierce his
foot, and on stooping down to ascertain the
cause, discovered it to be a lady's breast pin ;
and on searching further, found jewelry in
abundance. As a natural consequence, the
news soon spread, and, in a moment's time,
the race was surrounded by a host of boys
and girls. The boys immediately rolled up
their pants and waded into the stream—all
appearing to be very successful in obtain
ing a goodly share of the glittering gold. (?)
The jewelry is evidently the same that was
stolen from Mr. Colon's store, some three
weeks since, and supposed to be thrown into
the race by the thief or thieves, from fear of
detection. Every youngtser in town is now
sporting a breast full of brass jewelry.
TAKING TtIE CENSUS.—The gentlemen who
are engaged in taking the Census are fre
quently subjected to vexations and deten
tions, on account of the ignorance or obsti
nancy of many persons who refuse to give
their name, age, &c. We know of an in
stance, in this county, and not a great dis
tance from here, in which an old lady re
fused to give the desired information. lie
informed her that he must have it; where
upon she became very angry, and threatened
to put him out of the house, if he did not
leave immediately. Ile went out, but re
turned again, however, and informed her that
he would force the law if she did not imme
diately comply with his commands. At last,
she gave the information—told him to go
about his business, ordered him out of the
house, and closed the door on his back.
HARD BUTTER WITITOUT ICE.—To have de
lightfully hard butter in summer, without
ice, the plan recommended by that excellent
and useful publication, the Scientific Ameri
can, is a good one. Put a trivit, or any open
flat thing with legs, in a saucer ; put on this
trivit the plate of butter, fill the saucer with
water, turn a common flower-pot upside down
over the butter, so that its edge shall be with_
in the saucer and under the water. Plug
the hole of the flower-pot with a cork, then
drench the flower-pot with water, set in a cool
place until morning, or if done at breakfast
the butter will be very hard by supper time.
How many of our town school girls, who have
been learning philosophy, astronomy, syntax
and prosody, can write an explanation of this
within a month.
PAINFUL ACCIBENT.-A young daughter of
Mr. Pope met with a serious accident on the
Pa. R. R., about a mile above this place, on
Saturday evening last. As the cars stopped
at this place, some person thoughtlessly placed .
the child on the platform of the cars, thinkinc ,
perhaps, that her father, who was in the cars
at the time, would take her off as he came out.
But, unfortunately, however, he went out of
the opposite door, and, of course, did not ob
serve it. The cars started off, the child re
maining on the platform, and when about a
mile above town, fell off, fracturing her
skull, and otherwise injuring herself. She
was carried home insensible. The child was
still living at the time we write, (Monday.)
but little hopo is entertained of its recovery.
SUNDAY SCHOOL EXHIBITION.—According
to previous announcement, the scholars of the
Methodist Sunday School gave an Exhibition
in the M. E. Church, on last Tuesday evening
a week. The exercises consisted of speeches,
dialogues, and solgs, by those connected with
the school, and Music by the String Band.—
All who embraced this favorable opportunity
of listening to the scholars expressed them
selves highly delighted, as indeed they could
not otherwise be. The Church was literally
crowded, and the seats were not sufficient to
accommodate half that were in attendance.
Music.—We are happy to inform the pub
lic, that Prof. H. Coyle's class of young la
dies, misses and lads, will give a grand en
tertainment, on the 28th and 29th of the pres
ent month, at the Court House in this place.
Judging from the abilities of those concerned,
we have no hesitation in saying that the affair
will be one well worth the patronage of all lov
ersof the art. The entertainment will be inter
spersed with music on the violin, by a class
of boys, that evince a natural talent. The
selection for the occasion, cannot help giving
THEFT.-A young Englishman, called the
" Pot Boy," and pretending to be a boring
master and prize-fighter, entered the office of
Wilson & Petrekin, during their absence, on
Friday afternoon last, and took from the safe
fifteen dollars, and fled. A warrant was im
mediately placed in the hands of the consta
ble for his apprehension, and search institu
ted ; but at the time we write, (Monday,) no
Arrest has been made, nor has be since been
heard of. •
To DESTROY FLIES.—To one. pint of milk
.add a quarter pound of raw sugar, and two
- ounces ground pepper ; simmer them eight
or ten minutes, and place it about in shallow
dishes. The flies attack it greedily,
soon suffocated. By this method, kitchens,
&c., -May 'be kept clear of flies all summer
without the danger attending poison. We
.00py this from an anonymous source. It is
gully tried ; and if eirective, will be valuable.
TIIANRS.—The M. E. Sunday School So
ciety tender to Prof. Hugh Coyle, their heart
felt thanks for the kind and efficient service,
rendered by him, in the getting up, and per
formance of the musical part of the S. S. Ex
hibition held in the M. E. Church, 0..1 the
evening of the 12th inst.
The Society also extend their thanks to the
"Home String Band," for their kindness in
discoursing their pleasing and highly enter
taining music on the same occasion. _

Iluntingdon, Pa., June, 1860.
MORE STRAWBERRIES.—On Saturday last,
we were presented with a large dish of mag
nificent strawberries by Mr. T. 11. Cremer,
which were raised in his own garden.—
They were by odds, the finest specimen of
thisfruitwe have seen this season. The editor
being absent, and not expected to return in
time to help us "put away" this delicious
fruit, and as we have had a good share of it,
we feel it our duty to tender Mr. C. our hum
ble thanks, which we hope he will accept.
STYE ON THE EYELID.-A correspondent
sends us the following remedy, which, she
says, she can vouch for : " Put a teaspoonful
of black tea in a small bag ; pour on it just
water enough to moisten it; then put it on the
eye pretty warm. Keep it on all night, and
in the morning the stye will most likely' be
gone; if not, a second application is certain
to remove it."
FounTa or JVLY.—An Excursion train will
leave Huntingdon at 9 o'clock, A. 111., for
Broad Top City, arriving in time for dinner,
returning same evening. The Excelsior Brass
Band has been engaged for the occasion, and
a pleasant time may be expected. Tickets
$1.25 for round trip.

den, measuring 32- inches. Two or three
quarts of the same size, with cream, would
be easy to take.
'Strawberries promise to be very plenty
this season, and it is thought they will be so
cheap that printers and other people can buy
them. This luscious fruit is selling in Balti

Slander about Women
We adopt the following "hints," which we
find floating around at random on the sea of
newspaperdom as a genuine "home item," and
we wish all our readers may suffer them to
be ever present in their memories. We have
probably, all of us met with instances in
which a word heedlessly spoken against the
reputation of a female, has been circulated
by malicious minds until the clouds have be
come dark enough to overshadow her whole
existence. To those who are accustomed—
not necessarily from bad motives, but from
thoughtlessness—to speak lightly about fe
males, we recommend this " hint" as worthy
of consideration :
" Never use a lady's name at an improper
time, or in mixed company. Never make as
sertions about her that you think are untrue,
allusions that you feel she herself would
blush to hear. When you meet with men
who do not scruple to make use of a woman's
name in a reckless and unprincipled manner,
shun them, for they are the worst members
of a community—men lost to every sense of
honor—every feeling of humanity. Many a
good and worthy woman's character has been
forever ruined, and her heart broken, by a
lie - manufactured by some villain, and repeat
ed where it should not have been, and in the
presence of .those whose little judgment
could not deter them from circulating the
foul and bragging report. A slander is soon
propagated, and the smallest thing derogato
ry to a woman's character will fly on the
wings of the wind, and magnify as it circu
lates, until its enormous weight : crushes Coe
unconscious victim. Respect the name of
woman • for your mother and sisters are wo
men, and as you would have their fair names
untarnished, and their fair lives unembitter
ed by slander's, bitter tongue,• heed the ill
that your own words may bring upon the
mother, sister or wife of some other fellow

CASS VILLE, June 11, 1860,
DEAR GLons.—The light of your smiling
countenance greeted me for the first time, in
the classic shades of Cassville, on Wednesday
evening last. Oh ! how my heart leaped for
joy. A sweet messenger from home, as it
Cassville is pleasantly situated in a small,
but romantic valley, near the base of two
mountains. It contains four stores, two black
smith shops, two potteries, one tavern, three
churches, three or four shoemaker shops, and
about fifty dwelling houses. The town pre
sentS rather an ancient appearance, and if I
may be allowed to express an opinion, I think
that it has come to maturity. I find the in
habitants to be kind and courteous, and spare
no pains to make a stranger sojourning with
them feel comfortable.
The Cassville Seminary is in a flourishing
condition. Quite a number of students from
abroad are in attendance. The Principal,
Mr. Walsh, is a ripe scholar, a gentleman in
every sense of the word, and deserves to be
liberally patronized. The Assistant Princi
pal, Mr. Hughes, is also an excellent scholar,
and neither spares pains nor trouble, to teach
" the young idea how to shoot." The build
ings are well adapted to the purpose for which
they were intended. To sum the whole up
in a word, this is the place for those who wish
to study. The scenery is wild and romantic,
and rather pleasing to one who is an admirer
of the works of nature. Shut out from the
whole world, as it were, there is nothing to
attract the eye or divert the mind, except the
beauties of nature and the smiling faces of
Cassville's fair daughters, who, by the way,
are as robust and healthy a looking set, as I
have seen for many a long day. But to an
individual like your correspondent, who is
proof against the winning smiles and artful
manoeuvres of the fair one ones, their charms
are lost in the admiration of Bullion's Gram
mar and Quackenbos Course of Composition
I must confess I feel somewhat lost here.—
The shrill scream of the locomotive is never
heard. The toot-a-toot of the boat-horn and
familiar words, "Lock ready," are lost in the
deep silence of the forests which intervene be
tween this place and the great line of public
Very little interest, (or apparently so,) is
manifested here, in regard to politics. How
ever, I am inclined to the opinion that Doug
las is decidedly in the ascendency, from the
fact, that while passing along one of the
streets the other evening, I observed the fol
lowing-notice attached to a fence, bearing
these significant words: " No North, no South,
no East, no - West, but Douglas, Foster, and
the Union !" The idea was expressive of
good taste, at least.
The weather—that inexhaustible topic—
was playing all sorts of pranks last week.—
It was rain, rain, rain, nearly all the time,
intermingled with thunder and lightning.
The grain crops promise a plentiful yield.
The wheat and rye fields present a beautiful
sight. The corn and oats crops are coming
on finely, and from appearances, also promise
an abundant harvest. May it be realized.—
P. S.—l am informed that several candi
dates have been here already, urging their
claims to the different offices to be voted for
this fall. Ea-R.
MOORESYILLE, June 13, 1860
MR. EDITOR. :—ln perusing the columns of
the Shirleysburg Herald, of last week, I dis
cover the production of a. correspondent from
Mudville, who names himself Velazquez, Jr.
Now, as far as I can understand,- the Mud
ville he has reference to, is our own beautiful
little village of Mooresville. Why he called
it the above name -I am unable to answer ,•'
but I presume it was owing to the great quan
tity of mud surrounding it during the rainy
season—which of course was found in alma
dance everywhere. During dry weather, we
have streets as free from mud as any other
village or town in the county. 'Tis true,
South St., at the lower end of the village, re
mains a little disagreeable for a few days af
ter a tremendous shower. But, taking all
things into consideration, the village is well
laid out, (for wet weather,) being considera
bly elevated. Therefore, I consider Mud
ville a very inappropriate name. But again
he says, " It appears as if it was rotting off
at both ends, and not growing much in the
middle." Well now, Ido not see how he can
make such appear. Does Velazquez really
pretend such is the case ? If so, let him
answer in his next. As far as the growing
in the middle is concerned, I will coincide
with him, because our village consists of two
ends. The one called the upper and the oth
er the lower end. The middle is uninhabita
ble. But as for the ends rotting off, lam able
to say is a mistake ; and would tell Velaz
quez, Jr., the next time he undertakes to view
or inspect our village, to look a little sharp
er, or else put on his " specks." Further
comments upon V.'s production I consider
Last Friday evening the Mooresville Senate
met in the college building, one door south of
the Institute, and set for three long successive
hours. There being no regular business be
fore the house, Stewart F. Thompson, M. D.,
of this place, was called upon to address the
vast multitude of people. Mr. Thompson
arose, amid enthusiastic cheering and tre
mendous stamping, and entertained the audi
dence satisfactorily, for about one hour. His
address consisted chiefly of the government
of our glorious republic. He cited back to
the youthful days of Washington—when be
occupied the Presidential chair, and followed
up until he reached the present administra
tion. The picture he represented was grand
Mr. Thompson, though young, is a gentle
man of high intellectual abilities. He is a
lover of freedom. He fights for truth and
right, and if he is not able to accomplish his
political designs with the tongue, he can do
it with the pen. More anon,
POISONOUS LIQUORS.—The following is the
result of an analysis, made by Dr. Griffith,
of some liquors which were presented to him
for examination :
Writ. LEwrs - :—I have within the last few
days examined chemically a few samples of
Whisky, Brandy, Gin, Ale and Lager Beer,
and did not find any one pure, all containing
more or less drugs of the most noxious and
poisonous character. The Liquors were pre
sented to me for inspection by an individual
whose name at present I am not at liberty to
give; in the name of justice let us have pure
liquor when we feel like using it as a bever
age or for other purposes. The Alcohol alone
is sufficient without the admixture of some of
the most deleterious drugs. Can there be
nothing done to prevent this wholesale pois
oning with drugs suspended in water, and
palmed off on the unsuspecting, under . the
fascinating colors of old Bourbon, and French
Brandy, of the finest brand, &c.
