COFFEE RUN, May 15, 18G1.
DEAR GLOBE: MO! look this way
and behold the third bright constella
tion which yesterday appeared in the
national firmament of Coffee Run.—
About 4 o'clock, P. M., a large and
beautiful flag was flung to the breeze
amidst the deafening cheers of nearly
two hundred sound and avenging peo
ple of both sees.. We extend our
most serious and heart-felt thanks to
Capt. J. H. Wintrode, who delivered
what may be termed an uncontamina
ted, soul-stirring, patriotic speech.—
Also, to the ladies who gave a most
bountiful *supper to the whole assem
bly. After supper, we were quite
amusingly entertained by Mr. Joseph
March, who exhibited his skill on
horseback. The whole crowd was
raised to the highest pitch of aston
ishment upon seeing the expertness
and activity of Mr. March. He is
mernlrzr of the Light Horse Company
under Capt. Wilson, and I venture to
say he wilt not be excelled by any of
the chivalrous sons of that company.
Yours, MOUNTAINEER.
HAWN'S SCHOOL nousE,
May 18, 1861.
War. LEWIS, ESQ.: Permit me,
through your columns, to report the
prodeedings of a meeting of a large
number of the citizens of Juniata town
ship, held this afternoon, for the pur
pose of raising a Union pole. At
about 8k P. M., the raising commenc
ed; the first effort was unsuccessful,
inconsequence of the insufficiency of
One of the splices, together with the
absence of sufficient ropes and tackle,
the procuring of which was entrusted
to one of the citizens of the township;
who, for some cause, was not present.
The break,howcver,was soon mended,
and all thitigs being'adjusted, the pole
was seen gradually but surely ap
proaching its wonted position. In a
few minutes the stars and stripes, to
gether with a beautiful pennon, were
seen floating to the mountain breeze
at a distance' of 115 feet from the
ground. The flag is a very pretty one,
and is the work of the patriotic ladies
of Juniata. God bless the ladies !
their patriotism appears to know no
limit, and their Union sentiments are
unprecedented in boundless magnitude.
After vociferous and long continued
cheering for the flag, the Constitution,
&c., the crowd withdrew to the sehool
house adjoining, for the purpose of
formally organizeng the meeting. On
motion, James Johnston, Esq., Was se
lected as President, Win. Geisinger and
Wm. Dean, Esqrs., Vice Presidents,
Maj. Wm. Secretary. Speeches
were made by Mnj. J. H. 0. Corbin,
A. L. Grim and Frank Zentmire, who
made the surrounding hills echo with
their patriotic eloquence. The whole
proceedings were diversified by sever
all patriotic songs sung by Col. Wm.
J. Geisinger and others, with the cho
ruses of which, , the very hearers seem
ed to be filled by the united voices of
the whole assembly. After three
cheers for the ladies, and three times
three hearty cheers.for the Union, the
Constitution, and the Laws, the as
sembled hundreds withdrew to their
respective homes. SPECTATOR.
The Past Weelts
Let us look back to the 4tli of March
of the present year, when Abraham
Lincoln was inaugurated President of
these United States, when the official
robes were thrown upon his shoulders,
when he was required to take the oath
of allegiance to the Constitution, and
preserve, protect, and defend it against
all its enemies. See what followed
this inauguration. The people of the
Southern States, declared the inaugu
ral address to be of a warlike character;
they formed themselves into conven
tions; they seceded from this glorious
Union; they ratified their own Con
stitution; and they brought about a
Civil Ivan
Fort Sumpter, one of our strong
holds, was taken by them, and embold
ened by this victory,. they attacked
and destroyed other property that be
longed to the Federal Government,
and even threatened the Capitol, where
fifteen Presidents have already gov
erned. Immediately were the Federal
forces ordered out by Lincoln, and
thousands flocked under the banners
of Freedom, to defend that shrine of
each patriot's devotion"—Washington.
Little exciting war news has occurred
since the Secessionists have found that
we are prepared to defend the city, of
Washington to the last; each army is
awaiting the attack of the other; our
important posts and strongholds are
being vigilantly guarded, and strongly
reinforced. Every town and city that
is likely to be attacked, is supplied
generously with Union-loving soldiers
and citizens.
The time has come for every one,
from the bey of 18 to the man of 45,
to defend himself and his home against
invading hosts of rebels, traitors and
conspirators. Every one between those
ages should, to the best of his ability,
be accustomed to the use of the rifle
or the musket, so that when they are
called upon, they , will be ready to fight
and conquer.

HUNTINGDON, Pa
Liberty Pole Raising in Cassville
At a meeting of the citizens of the
borough of Cassville and vicinity, held
a short time ago, it was resolved that
the stars and stripes—the emblem of
Liberty and Union—should flaunt in
the breeze from the summit of Shirley's
knob, a bold elevation whose, top
reaches several hundred feet above the
level of the village and the surrounding
valley of Trough Creek, so that the
world,might see that the people of this
locality were true and unfaltering in
their devotion to our venerated Union.
Dr. H. L. Brown was appointed chair
man of a committee raised for the pur
pose of procuring a suitable flag, and
Christian Miller selected as chairman
of a committee to prepare a pole.—
Saturday, May is., at 2 o'clock P. M.,
was the time fixed for the commence
ment of the patriotic work.
The day came and with it came hun
dreds of patriots from the adjacent vil
lages and towaships„,pld and young,
male and female wereanxious to witness
the exercises of the day. The Scott
Artillery, commanded by Capt. Simeon
Wright, added interest to the occasion
by their martial bearing and stirring
music. At the appointed hour, the
assembled people proceeded to the site
selected for the pole, and all things
being in readiness, the arrangements
complete and perfect, strong arms, ac
tnrted by patriotic hearts, soon raised
the towering mast, with its star-em
blazoned ensign, amid the strains of
enlivening music and the cheers of the
multitude, to its appointed place.
The people then repaired to the vil
lage beneath. A public meeting was
organized by the selection of Capt.
SIMEON WRIGHT, of Union town
ship, as President, JAMES ENTREKIN,
of Hopewell, tp., JOSHUA GREENLAND,
Esq., and A. W. EVANS, of Cassville,
and GEO. W. HAZZARD, of Union tp.,
as Vice Presidents, and James E. Glas
gow, Esq., of Union tp., D. Clarkson,
Esq., of Cassville, and J. Simpson Afri
ca, Esq., of Huntingdon, Secretaries.
Able and eloquent addresses were
delivered by Dr. J. H. Wintrode, of
Penn township, Rev. Chenowith, Pre
siding Elder of the 31. E. Church, and
Rev. C. Graham. These addresses
abounds(' in patriotic expressions of
devotion to our- glorious Union and
its time-honored banner which has
emerged to glorious victory without a
single stripe tattered or a star obliter
ated, from the smoke and carnage of
full many battle-fields. May it be so
forever!
The meeting adjourned and thus
closed an eventful and memorable day
in the history of Cassville,
Our Army Correspondence.
CHAMBERSBURG, May 20.
En. GLOBE :—I have just bid good
bye with the Commander at Camp
Slifer, Gen. Williams, with Colonels
Irwin, Meredith, and Emory—their
respective staff and company officers.
Taken as a Brigade, I have never seen
so fine a body of soldiers, active, intel
ligent and patriotic—under very ac
tive drill—men obedient, and officers
kind, consequently rapid progress is
being made, preparatory to the great
contest for Constitutional liberty, and
equality of rights.
From present indications, the con
test will soon be begun. Eight hun
dred Virginia troops encamped on the
Virginia side of the Potomac, opposite
the town of Williamsport, Maryland,
on last Saturday evening. It is said
that the Union feeling is being over
powered
.by military force in all that
region. Union men are fast flying
north—we see them every day in the
cars, many of them having left their
homes in the night.
For what purpose these troopse have
taken the above position, we are not
infbrmed, but suspicions and surmises
suggest a double purpose,—first to car
ry the Secession candidates at the elec
tion ; second, to invest Williamsport,
it being a great grain and provision
depot, and a point where the Secession
army can get supplies. The above
report came by the Ila,gerstown cars
this morning, and raised very consid
erable excitement about town and
Camp.
There are now about 3000 troops in
Camp Slifer and Camp IrWin, near
this place. So many good officers and
good men, as soldiers, were perhaps
never collected at one Camp, without
special, selection, in this or any State
before. I would not attempt to make
a distinction between Colonels, Majors,
or Captains—all, every ono is ambi
tious, attentive and • faithful in duty.
Order prevails in and around the
Camp. Preaching„morninr , ' " and eve
ning yesterday. No liquor allowed on
the ground, nor none sold to anybody
in town on the Sabbath. Many of the
soldiers were to be seen sitting in their
tents reading the Bible, others singing
hymns. All seemed contented and
happy, and join, with cheerfulness, and
without distinction of political party
feelings ' or religious sectarianism, in
support of the Government, the Con
stitution, and the flag of our common
Country.

conversion and bringing them to Christ. The subject of

This work contains 201 pages, and tipster& of 800 Roles
and Examples, entirely and thoroughly practical, Ruch as
arise army day in the common pursuits of Business. It
has already passed through a number of editions in tepid
succession, and is pronounced by all classes of business
men to ho the handiest book of reference, pertaining to.
calculations, that late over been published.
Every example in the book is wet hod out in full and
stated in a plain manner, so that when - a parallel case ari
ses, those referring to the work will find no difficulty in
solving it• in a word, the general arrangement of the
CALCULATOR is simple, that any ono who kuows how to
IMO, subtract multiply and divide, can easily solve any or
dinary example that arisen in business, or arrive at the
true remit ofany estimate required.
The chief alai of the author has been to eschew theory
and philosophy in figures, aiming only at facts and slinplis
(dry, beltoving that Laciness men care little about spen
ding time in discussing the philosophy of rules, or the
solemn, of figures, deeming it sufficient for their purpose
to be able eta moment, by reference, to arrive at the true,
result. The CALCULATOR differs in this respect from alt
other Arithmetics of the day and kindred works—it is a
key to practical business calculations—it is, in the hands
of the businessman, what the key to mathematical works
in the hands of the teacher is the school room—it facili
tates time and insures correctness.

1,200,000 ACRES
Of Rich Farming Lands in Tracts of Forty Acrog and
llpaard, on Long Groin and at Low Film.
MEGIRNICB, FARMERS, AD W3ILKT MGM
Tho attention of the enterprising and industrious por
tion of tho community is directed to tho following state
ments and liberal inducements offered them by the
ILLI 010 CENTRAL RAILROAD COMPAIiT,
Which, as they will perceive, will enable them, by proper
energy, perseverance, and industry,to provide comfortable
and permanent homes for themselves and families, with,
comparatively speaking, very little capital.
LANDS or lutoots
Na State in the valley of the Mississippi offers no groat
an inducement to the settler na the State of Illinois.—
Thero is no portion of the world 'alters all of the condi
tions of climate and soil so admirably combine to produce
those two great staples, corn and wheat, no the prairies or
Illinois.
RIM ROLLINS PRAIRIE LANDS,
The deep rich loom of the prairies is cultivated with
such wonderful facility that the farmers of the Eastern
and Middle States aro moving to Illinois in great numbers.
Tho area of Illinois is about equal to that of England, and
the soli is so rich that it will support twonly millions of
people.
EASTERN AND SOUTRERS: MARKETS.
These lan& are contiguous to a railroad seven hundred
miles in lenoh, which connects with other roads and nav
igable lakes and rivers, thus affording an unbroken corn,
municatation with the Eastern and Southern markets.
I!CIEME=MI
Thus far capital and labor havo been applied to develop
log the soil ; the great resources of the State In coal and
Iron are almost untouched. The Invariable rule that the
mechanic arts Boorish best nhoro food and Mel are cheap
est. will follow at on early day in Illinois, and in the course
of the next ten years the natural laws and necessities of
the case warrant the belief that at least five hundred
thousand people will be engaged in the State orlllinois in
the various manunettuing employments.
RAILROAD SYSTEM OF ILLINOIS,
Over $100,000.000 of private capital have been expended
on the railroad system of Illinois. Inasmuch as part of
the income front several of these works, with a valuable
public fund in hinds, go to diminish the Etat° expenses,
the taxes aro light, and must consequently every day do.
THE STATE Dm
The Slate debt is only $10,105,398 14, and within 'the
last threo years has been reduced $2,959.746 80 ; and we
may reasonably - expect that in ten years it will become
extinct.

026 persona Laving been added nince 1860, making Om pop
ulation 1,219 406—a ratio of 102 per cent. in ten yearn.
ACMCOLTURAL Pnonovi.s.
The agricultural products of Illinois are greater then
those of any other State. The products sent out during
the past year exceeded 1,600,000 tons. The wheat crop of
1800 approaches 38,000,000 bushels, while the corn crop
yields not less than 140,000,000 bushels.
15=2122:2
Nowhere can the industrious farmer secure such illllllo.
diate results for his labsrus upon these mairie soils, they
being composed of ufleep rich loan, the fertility of which
is unsurpassed by any on the globe.
To ACTUAL CULTIV &TOSS
Since 1854 the Company have sold 1,30%000 RCVS. They
sell only to actual cultivators, and every conttract contains
an agreement to cultivate. The road has been constructed
through these lands at an expense of $30,000,000. ",/n 1330,
the population of the 49 counties through which tt passes
was only 335.598, since which 479.293 have been added, am,
Lilly the whole population. 814,891—a gain of 143 per cent.
EVIDENCES OP PROSPERITY
A. an evidence cf tho thrift of the people, it may be
stated that 6110,000 tons of freight, including 8;600,000 bum.
of grain end 250,000 barrels of flour, were forwarded over
the line last year.
IZEZEI
Mechanics and workingmen will find the free school
system encouraged by the State and endowed with a large
revenue for the support of schools. Their children can
