THE HUNTINGDON GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL S DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, SiC.
Huntingdon, Wednesday, Nov. 28, 1860.
LOCAL & PERSONAL.
AN EARNEST REQUEST.--We have publish
ed the Globe regularly for fifteen years, du
ring which time thousands of dollars of ar
rearages for subscription and advertising,
have accumulated upon our books. We have
never pressed those of our friends in arrears,
for a settlement. But now, as we have in
contemplation some extensive improvements
in the size and appearance of the Globe at an
early day, we intend, before making those
improvements, to have the wheat sifted from
the chaff, and our books squared up. There
fore, all.who are indebted to us are requested
to call before the Ist of December and square
their accounts. We hope there will be no
delay on the part of all our patrons in ar
rears. We are politically defeated, but
neither frightened nor dismayed.

A RAZE Musical, TREAT.—The celebrated
" Continentals" will give a grand concert,
in the Court House, bn Friday evening next.
Lovers of good music should not fail to go
and hear them.
CHANGE OF CAR TIME.—The passenger
trains on the Pennsylvania Central and Broad
Top Roads, commenced running on new
Schedules on Monday last. See tables as
corrected in another column.
SOMETIIING NEW AND GOOD.---Just received
at Lewis' Book Store, a new article of writing
fluid. It costs but a trifle more and is much
superior to any writing inks.
PIRES.—The Shirleysburg Herald of last
week, says the mansion-house at Brewster's
old factory, in Hill Valley, Shirley Township,
was burned to ashes on• the afternoon of the
6th inst., with all its contents. The house
was occupied by two families at the time ;
James Palmer living in a portion, and Mrs.
Cornelius, widow of the late Reuben Corneli
us occupying the renainder.
The fire originated from . stove-pipe in
Palmer's apartment. Mr. Palmer and wife
and Mrs. Cornelius being absent, and none
but small children at home, the fire gained
such headway before assistance was obtained
as to make it impossible to save the effects of
the inmates, who were thus rendered desti
titute. A lad confined in Mrs. Cornelius'
room with a broken leg, was with difficulty
rescued. Mr. Palmer was attending the Elec
tion at this place at the time. The house
was a commodious two-story frame building—
the property of Mrs. Speer, wife of Gen. G.
W. Speer, and daughter of the late Judge
Brewster. The joint loss is considerable, but
falls most heavily upon the unfortunate in
mates, who, by the occurrence, lose their all,
and are made to rely on the cold charities of
the world. We are happy to state that,
through the efforts of kind neighbors, relief is
speedily being extended.
ANOTHER.—About 5 o'clock on Friday mor
ning last an alarm of fire was sounded through
our streets. On ascertaining its cause, the
buildings of William Johnson, in this village,
were discovered to be in flames. The fire
originated in his store-room, a small frame
building close to, but detached from, his man
sion on the south. When discovered, the in
terior of the store was thoroughly enveloped
in flames, which soon vented themselves
through the gables and roof. On the north,
and close to the store, stood a long log and
frame superstructure, consisting of stabling,
bark, and mill-house, and: tan, or finishing
house, attached to his Tannery. The fire im
mediately communicated itself to the roof and
cornice of the dwelling on the south, while
at the same time, the stable on the north,
which was log, (the mow stored with hay,)
was also in flames; the fire venting its fury
rapidly onward, as if to devour the entire
builidng. Fortunately, through the exertion of
the citizens, a large number being then pres
ent, the roof of the bark-house, connecting
with the tan-house, was torn away sufficient
to arrest the progress of the fire at this point,
and save the finishing apartment. The dwell
ing-house is of brick, or its destuction would
have been certain. The roof was burned
through, and at several times it was almost
surrendered to the flames. Its entire contents
were removed, in view of its certain conflagrn_
don ; and, in the extreme hurry of the mo
ment, the furniture, &e., was much damaged
in its removal. The entire contents of the
store Were consumed. A considerable quan
tity of bark in the shed suffered the same fate.
The loss is considerable ; but we are happy
to learn that the greater portion, if not all, is
covered by insurance in the Perry County Mu
tual Insurance Company. The origin of the
fire is enveloped in mystery. It was through
the almost superhuman efforts of the citizens :
and the convenience of water, that the rava
ges of the flames were so fortunately arrested.
Neighboring buildings were in imminent dan
ger. The morning was calm. Mr. Johnson
and his sons were absent on that night, but
were summoned home through the day.
DESSERTS.—The lady who has charge of
the Housekeeper's Department of the Ger
mantown, Telegraph, says of desserts, that these
are the agents which cause a vast amount of
human suffering, inasmuch as they tempt the
appetite and bribe nature to transgression,
which never fails of being punished sooner
or later. All eat as much as they want of
the ordinary dinner before the dessert comes
in, and, without the dessert, would feel a
comfortable exhilaration for the remainder of
day. But the tempter comes in ; the satia
ted palate is tickled, is whipped up ; the man
stuffs on, and for the remainder of the day is
more like a gorged anaconda than anything else
—so full that he rises from the table with de
liberation, strives against coughing lest he
might jolt up his dinner, and then sits down
to doze away a whole afternoon under the
oppressive influence of an inglorious surfeit.
A large addition would be made to the com
fort and health of any family which should
discard the whole catalogue of pies, pastries,
and puddings as desserts, and take in their
stead one or two oranges or apples, or a dish
of fresh ripe berries in their natural state;
or if out of season or unattainable, an agree
able, neat, and healthful substitute may be
found in a " mint-stick," a bit of cream-can
dy, or a piece of pure maple-sugar.
GOOD ADVICE.—GirIs, let us tell you a stub
born truth. No young woman ever looks so
well, to a sensible man, as •when dressed in a
plain, neat, modest attire, without a single
ornament about her person. She looks then•
as though she possessed worth in herself, and
needed no artificial rigging to enhance her
value. If a young woman would spend as
much time in cultivating her mind, training
her temper, and cherishing kindness, meek
ness, mercy, and other good qualities, as
most of them do in extra dress and ornaments,
to increase their personal charms, she would
at a glance be known among a thousand—
her character would be read in her counte
nance. That's so.

1861, only 3 cents, for sale at Lewis' Book
MANAGEMENT OF A. HOUSEHOLD.—Young la
dies, cut this out and pin it in your bonnets :
—" No young woman ought to feel herself
qualified to become a wife until she is sure
she understands how to do the most that can
be done with her husband's money. The
management of a hosehold is not a thing to
be properly and safely entrusted to hireling
hands. A. servant is a broken reed for the
head of a family to, lean upon. There are a
thousand little ways in which money must
be expanded, in which real shrewdness and
enterprise are requisite in order to use it to
the best advantage; and there are a thousand
other ways of saving money known, only to
those who have studied aright the art of econ
omy. The Turkish proverb has it, that " a
prudent woman is a mine of jewels," and,
like many other Oriental sayings, this is
beautiful for the truth it embodies. A waste
housekeeper not only actually robs those
for whom she undertakes to manage, of the
comforts it is her duty to provide for them,
but keeps her husband's head over ears in
debt, and makes the domestic life of a poor
man a continual series of experiments in shin
ning it from one day to the next ; in keeping
the stomach full,though the purse be empty."
THANKSGIVING.—Next Thursday will be
thanksgiving, and we suppose all who can
will make it a day of feasting and prayer.
The good old yankee custom of devoting one
day in the year to the Almighty in thanks
for the many benefits which, as a people and
individuals, we enjoy at His hands, is one
that we hope will never become obsolete.
Probably some of our readers do not know
how the custom originated. It was in one of
the early colonies of New England. One
year they had not raised enough to live upon,
and unless help should come from the mother
country, England, they must perish. It was
a sorrowful time, and they appointed a day
of fastiug and prayer, that God might send
them relief. The day before that so appoint
ed, a ship laden with provision arrived, and
the fast day was changed to a thanksgiving
day, and it was thereafter commemorated
A TIP-TOP DINNER.—On Thursday evening
last we received by Express a box containing
a baker's dozen of very fine large fat par
tridges, which had been taken on the wing'
the day previous, near old Derry Church
in Dauphin county, by Major J. L. Poulton,
C. M , of Harrisburg, and by him sent to us
as a present. We can assure the Major that
we had a good dinner the i-next day; that
Christmas turkey wasn't thought of. Our
thanks—hoping you may have good luck
GRAND HUMBUG.—Two weeks ago We beard
an occasional loud whisper of a great turn
out of wide-awakes that was to come off in
this place on Tuesday night last. Well, it
did come off—but what did it turn out to be
—nothing more than a dull, fiat, funeral-like
procession. There was no enthnsiasm what
ever. The poor fellows walked along, side
by side, shivering with cold, regretting that
their mamma's knew they were out and that
they were so far away from their homes and
DEATH OF CHRISTIAN COITTS.--Our oldfriend
and fellow citizen, Christian Couts, is no
more; lie died on Thursday morning last af
ter a few days illness. Mr. Couts was well
known throughout the country, and by the
travelling public generally, as he had been
for a number of years and up to the day of
his death, one of our most agreeable and ac
Two young meu were fined, recently, in
Allentown, for defacing handbills. The boys
of this town who are in the habit of mutilating
and tearing down bills, almost as soon as they
are posted, will do well to make a note of the
fact that it is a finable offence. We shall en
force the law against all who deface bills
printed at this office.
COLD FEET.-If you have cold feet, immerse
them morning and evening in cold water, rub
with a rough towel. In one month you will
be entirely relieved. All the red pepper and
mustard applications are like rum to the stom
ach, relieve you to-day, but leave you colder

THE GLOBE :
THE OFFICIAL PAPER OF CONGRESS
I rntrusn now my annual Prospectus of The DAILY
GLOBE, and THE CONGRESSIONAL GLOBE AND APPENDIX,LO re
mind subscribers, and inform those who may desire to
subscribe, that Congress will meet on the first Monday of
next December, when I shall resume publishing the above
named papers. They have been published so long, that
most public men know their character, and therefore I
deem it needless to give a minute account of the kind of
matter they will contain.
TILE DAILY GLOBE will contain a report of the Debates in
both branches of Congress as taken down by reporters,
equal, at least, to any corps of short-hand writers in this,
or in any other country. A majority of them will each,
be able to report, verbatim, ten thousand words en hour,
while the average number of words spoken by fluent
speakers rarely exceeds seven thousand five hundred
words an hour. When the debates of a day do not make
more than forty-five columns, they will appear in The
Daily Globe of the next morning which will contain, also,
the news of the day, together with such editorial articles
as may be suggested by passing events.
Tax CONGRESSIONAL GLOBE AND APPENEDM. will contain a
report of all the Debates in Congress, revised by the
speakers, the Messages of the President of the United
States, the Annual Reports of the Head of the Executive
Departments, the Laws passed during the session, and co
pious indexes to all. They will be printed on a double
royal sheet, in book form, royal quarto size, each number
containing sixteen pages. The whole will make, it is be
lieved, at least 2,000 . pages. This is ackr.owledged to be
the cheapest work ever sold in any country, whether a re
print or printed from manuscript copy, taking for data the
average number of words it contains.
The coming session will, without doubt, be an unusual
ly interesting one,
because the debates will, in a great
measure, be upon the policy of the President elect, and
The Globe will be, as it has been for many years past, the
only source from which full debates of Congress can be
THE CONGRESSIONAL GLOBE AND APPENDIX pass free
through the mails of the United States, as will be seen by
reading, the following Joint Resolution passed by Congress
the Gth of August, 1852:
Joint Resolution providing for the distribution of the
Laws of Congress and the Debates thereon.
With a view to the cheap circulation of the laws of Con
gress and the debates contributing to the truo interpre
tation thereof, and to make free the communication be
tween the representative and constituent bodies :
Be it resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives
of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That
from and after the present session of Congress, the CON
GRESSIONAL GLOBE AND APPENDIX, which contain the laws
and the debates thereon, shall pass free through the mails
so long as the same shall be published by order of Congress:
Provided, That nothing herein shall be construed to au
thorize the circulation of the DAILY GLOBE free of postage.
