Huntingdon, Wednesday, Oct. 17, 1860.
LOCAL & PERSONAL.
HOW' TO FORETE v T e L WEATLIEL—In a manual
of the barometer, compiled by Rear-Admiral
Fitzroy, and just published by the Board of
Trade, the following useful observations oc
cur ; " Whether clear or cloudy, a rosy sky
at sunset presages fine weather ; a rod sky
in the morning, bad weather, or much wind
(perhaps rain ;) a gray sky in the morning,
fine weather; a high dawn, wind ; a low dawn,
fair weather. Soft looking or delicate clouds
foretell fine weather, with moderate or light
breezes ; hard-edged or oily clouds, wind.—
A dark, gloomy, blue sky is windy ; but
a light, bright, blue sky indicates fine weath
er-. Generally, the softer clouds look, the
less wind (but, perhaps more rain) may be
expected ; and the harder, more " greasy,"
rolled, tufted, or ragged, the stronger the
coming wind will prove. Also, a bright,
yellow sky at sunset presages wind ; a pale
:yellow, wet ; and thus, the prevalence of
red, yellow or gray tints, the coming weather
may be foretold very nearly ; indeed, if aided
by instruments, almost exactly. Small inky
looking clouds foretell rain ; light scud clouds
driving across heavy masses show wind and
rain ; but, if alone, may indicate wind only.
High upper clouds crossing the sun, moon
or stars in a direction different from that of
the lo;ver clouds, or the wind then felt below,
foretells a change of wind. When sea birds
fly out early, and far to seaward, moderate
wind and fair weather may be expected;
when they hang about the land or over it,
sometimes flying inland, expect a strong
wind with stormy weather. There are other
signs of a coming change in the weather
known less generally than may be desirable,
mid, therefore, worth notice ; such as when
birds of long flight, rooks, swallows or others
hang about home, and fly up and down or
low—rain or wind may be expected. Also,
when animals seek sheltered places, instead
of spreading over their usual range; when
pigs carry straw to their sties ; when smoke
from chimneys does not ascend readily (or
straight upwards during calm) an unfavora
ble change is probable. Dew is an indica
tion of fine weather ;so is fog. Neither of
these two formations occur under an overcast
sky, or when there is too much wind. One
sees fog occasionally rolled away, as it were by
wind, but seldom or never formed while it is
GORGEOUS OCTOBER.—The year is drawing
to a close, and glorious as an army with ban
ners she, walks through October. In the lan
guage of Virginia Townsend, they who re
joiced in the gladness of the spring, and the
beauty of summer, shall soon revel in such
paintings of sky and earth as only God's
hand can accomplish. The forests are great
pillars-of flame. In the west are seen great
fleets with sails of crimson, and looking on
the face of the earth, we know that solemn,
and stately, and gorgeous October has taken
up her march in the sisterhood of the months.
In a little while the year will fall into chill
and shadow. The wood-fires will be kindled
in the kitchens of old country houses ; there
will he the sad, rustling sound of the leaves
on the earth, the fall of apples on the pale
orchard grass, the dropping of nuts in the
woods. And later there will come that last
smile of the year, the still, serene, yearning
Indian. Summer, and afterward the early
nights, the cold, pallid, stricken days and
the wild storms—and then the year must
arise and gird herself, and prepare to go out
REPUBLICAN JUBILEE.—On Friday night,
the Wide-Awakes, and other friends of Lin
coln, Hamlin, Curtin and Wharton, paraded
our streets, with torches and transparencies,
in honor of their late victory. The whole
procession was headed by the Excelsior
Band. A number of the victorious candi
dates were also in rank. After parading all
die streets in the town, they again returned
to the Court House, the place of starting,
where a series of resolutions were offered,
read and adopted, reading Dr. Benj. E. Mc-
Murtrie, Major McMurtrie, Wm. McMurtrie,
Major Jas. Steel, J. Sewell Stewart and Jona.
McWilliams outside the pales of the party.—
'hey also had a bon-fire in the Diamond,
where tar barrels and boxes had to suffer.—
In the procession were three or four transpa
rencies, with mottoes emblematic of their
party. One especially attracted our attention,
as we were somewhat concerned. It was a
ship bound for Salt River, with our Post
Master as Captain. Old Abe was conspicu
ously displayed on one of the transparencies,
:and looked as ugly and natural as life.
CHICKEN THIEVES ABOUT AGAlN.—These
midnight marauders have again commenced
their depredations on the chicken coops of
our citizens. On Saturday night, Mrs. Har
ry Wharton had fuur chickens and a turkey
taken from her coop, and Wm. McMurtrie
bad five taken from his premises. It is about
time that this thing should be stopped. It
would be. advisable for our citizens to keep
an eye on their hen-roosts, and give the first
person seen prowling about them, a dose of
pepper and salt.
CURE FOR SORE TUROAT.-It is said that
good fresh yeast, taken internally, will give
instant relief in cases of putrid sore throat.
This disease prevails to a considerable ex
tent, and we recommend a trial of the above
simple remedy, which cannot injure the pa
tient, even if it fails to effect a cure,
11Erl•Ve are requested to state that the pub
lication of the People's Defender has been
suspended for two weeks, in order to get the
subscription list of the same arranged. We
are also informed that there has beep under
handed work carried on with some of the
Postmasters in this county to prevent the cir
culation of that journal, which will be rigor
ously attended to if further persisted in.
NOTICE.—The Committee of Arrangements
for Camp Patterson, are requested to meet at
the Court House, on Thursday evening, the
I.Bth inst., for the purpose of settling up ac
counts. By order of the Chairman.
XteJ`^ One of the children of Mr. John Mc-
Cabe, whom we mentioned as having been
badly burnt a week or two since, died of its
injuries on Friday night last.
A Hanging Scene at Pike's Peak
A letter from Colerado city, dated the 25th
ult., says :
"Four weeks ago a Mexican was brought
into town, accused of stealing horses. It was
Sunday morning, the people were on their
way to church, the captors, with the prisoner
attracted attention, a crowd collected, and a
court was speedily organized. A lumber
wagon was used for the Judge's bench,elerk's
desk, & - c., and near the wheel, sat the unfor
tunate man, with one end of the rope about
his neck, the other in the hands of the sheriff;
he was surrounded by the crowd, all of whom
were the jury. Counsel were appointed, and
the trial commenced. It had proceeded but
a short time, when the clergyman who was
to preach that morning appeared. lle moun
ted the wagon and stated to the crowd that
he was late, but if they would give him a
quarter of an hour, be would be ready to
preach them a sermon.
" A person informed the reverend gentle
man that they had a hanging job on hand
and could not attend to him. The clergyman
then put the question to the assembled crowd,
whether they would have the hanging or the
sermon first. They decided by an unaninious
vote to have the hanging first, and proceeded
with the trial. The evidence was conclusive
that he had stolen the horses, and he was
sentenced to he hung. The prisoner begged
for mercy ; offered two thousand dollars, fifty
head of cattle, and twenty horses to be re
leased, promising to leave the country and
never return. His offer was refused. When
he found there was no hope he begged them
to hurry and hang him as soon as possible.—
A platform was constructed. Ile declined
making any remarks, and in the presence of
the citizens of the town, he was launched into
NEWSPAPERS IN OLDEN TIMES.—When
newspapers were first established, they were
quite destitute of advertisements, and nothing
was more common than for papers to be issu
ed with a blank page. The first newspaper
printed in America had only three pages of
reading matter, as there was not foreign, or
domestic news enough to fill out all,the col
umns ? In England, after a while, a new
method was adopted to fill up the space not
required for the current news, by published
selections from the sacred scriptures,
many an old newspaper is now extant with a
whole page copied from the Bible. Chapters
from the New Testament were placed at the
head of the column, and the space below was
filled out with a. psalm of the required length.
In the period which this to us novel proceed
ing was resorted to, to fill out the newspaper;
the Bible was not so common or so cheap as
at present, and doubtless much good resulted
from the practice. What would some of the
subscribers to our popular journals say if
their favorite sheet was to appear with seven
or eight columns selected from the Scriptures?
Doubtless, in some -quarters, even in our day,
extracts from the Bible would be, "new in
