We have not the time nor the incli

ber of persons who have unsettled ac
counts upon our books of several years
standing. We shall, therefore, from
day to day, without respect to persons,
place into the hands of a Justice for
collection, all accounts of over two
years standing. All those who wish
to save expense, will do well to give

ytm. The news by this morning's
mails is of a very meagre character.—
Everything is quiet along the Potomac.
By the arrival of the steamer Jura at
Portland, from Liverpool, we learn
that the excitement in England rela
tive to the Trent affair continues una
bated, and war preparations continue.
The United StateS Consul at Paris had
communicated to the-French papers a
letter from Gen. Scott. The London
Star thinks that the letter will receive
a hearty response in England, as a
message of peace. The action of Eng
land is condemned by the French press.
'SAD ACCIDENT AND DEATII.—It be-
Tomes our painful duty this afternoon,
to announce the untimely death of Mr.
DAVID M. CONFER ; Dispatcher for the
Penna. Railroad company at this place.
Yesterday evening about five o'clock,
while in the act of coupling some cars,
he was caught between them, and so
severely injured internally, that he
died in about two hours afterwards-r-_-•
We called to see him a few minutes
.after the sad casualty, and found him
-suffering from the most acute pains,
although not a bruise and only a very
slight scratch could be seen, yet it was
evident that his insides were horribly
crushed. Dr. McCulloch was in at
tendance, and rendered all the assist
ance medical skill could suggest, but
his injuries were of too serious a char
acter, and but little relief could. be
given. He was sensible up to the
'time of his death, and although suffer
ing under the most excruciating pains,
he conversed freely with those around
him. Mr. Confer was a sober, polite,
industrious, accommodating, active
and energetic business man, and dur
ing the four or five years he' resided
in this place, he won to himself a large
circle of friends and acquaintances.—
He was universally beloved and es
teemed by all who knew him, and his
sudden and painful demise has cast a
gloom over our town. Only a few
short hours ago, Mr. Confer was one
of the healthiest, most robust, and
most active amongst us, and now he
lays cold and still in death. " Truly,
in the midst of life we are in death."
He leaves a wife and seven small child
ren, the youngest only a week or two
old, to mourn his unexpected death.—
His wife loses a fond and affectionate
husband, his children a kind and in
dulgent father, Huntingdon a good
and useful citizen, and the Railroad
Company, a prompt, careful, active
and trusty employee.
P. S. Just before going to press,
we learn that Mr. Confer was aged 33
years, 2 months, and 3 days. Ile will
be buried in the Cemetery at this place
to-morrow at 2 o'clock, P. M.
SHORT LOCALS.—The weather con
tinues as warm and genial aslEay - .
flow much longer it will last is a ques
tion we aro not prepared to answer.-
-James Vanzandt bad his leg broke
on Tuesday. lie was employed at one
of the trestle works on the B. T. R. R.,
and while raising a stick of timber it
fell on him causing the fracture. He
was brought to his borne in this place,
and is getting along as well as can be
expected.—The Engineer and Su
perintendent of the Penna. Railroad
Company for the Canal Department,
has had full instructions to repair the
canal between this place and ilolli
daysburg, in order to give the inhabi
tants of that section of country a
chance of communicating with the
" world and the rest of mankind," by
way of the "raging canawl," once
again.—Chas. Dorman, an employee
of the B. T. R. R. Co., had his hand
smashed while coupling cars on Tues
day.—BrO. Pot of the Standard says
that birds of a feather dock together,
and asks us why should not good look-
ing editors? We don't see any reason
why they shouldn't; but, if you still
pretend to say you are good looking,
we cave. If you want to see real
beauty (not your kind) and grace com
bined, come down here some day and
step into our sanctum sanctorum, and
you will behold us with wonder and
astonishment—astonished that so much
beauty, grace, elegance, and refine
ment could bo centered in ono editor,
and wonder, that we are not clad in
robes of the costliest texture, the in
habitant of a gorgeous palace, and an
accepted suitor for the lovely (?) hand
of some millionaire's beautiful(?) daugh
ter. P. S.—lt is hardly necessary to
add that we are not at all ostentatious.
—An exchange says " the days, just
now, are most distressingly short at
both ends—about as short, indeed, as
they make them in this latitude with
out consulting the almanac. Thank
fortune they will soon commence don
gating again." Truo as preaching.—
We hear it is strongly suspected that
the man Patrick McLaughlin, a mem
ber of the McClellan Regiment, and
whom we noticed as being killed by
the ears the night before the regiment
left Camp Crosman for Harrisburg,
was unfairly dealt with. As the sto
ry runs, he and some others were at
a house in the lower end of town, and
while there they got to fighting, and
after beating this man almost to death,
they carried him out and laid him on
the railroad, to hide their crime. We
doubt the story. We know to our
own personal knowledge that the man
was intoxicated in the early part of
the evening, and we are inclined to
believe that he laid down on the rail
road of his own accord and went to
sleep, and was struck by a locomotive.
If any ono has cause for such. suspi
cion, why not investigate the matter?
—The editor of the Standard, in no
ting that the Senior had received sev
eral presents in the way of sausage
and pudding, goes on to say that ho is
no "great shakes " in the way of good
looks, and that' he can punish more
" bow-wow " meat than any other edi
tor in the Juniata region, &c. Sour
g-r-a-p-c-s. The senior is absent on
business—not after a fat government
take, however—but just wait till he
comes home and we will tell him all
about what you say. Yes, wait till
Dad comes home and you'll catch it.
Mind that now.

Our Army Correspondence.
CAMP CURTIN, Dec. 17, 1861
EDITORS OF GLOBE-SIRS : In accor
dance with my promise, 1 seize a few
moments to address a few lines for
the benefit of your readers.
In the first place, I Would return,
through your journal, to the citizens
of Huntingdon, the thanks of the 84th
Regiment, for the manner in which
they were received and treated while
sojourning in Camp Crosman. Hos
pitality everywhere greeted the mem
bers of the regiment—such hospitality
as is the companion of a true human
heart—a heart that feels for the wants
of man when he is separated from
home—home comforts, home sympa
thies. The uniform courtesy shown
by your citizens will not be forgotten,
but will live in remembrance wherever
we may be called to fight the battles
of our country against its enemies..
What a dark future appears before
our country at present. Never before
has our nation been called to pass
through the ordeal that now threatens
it. Engaged in civil war against trai
tors to her Government, and now
threatened with war from a Foreign
power—a power that stands forth as
one of the strongest on the face of the
globe. But what is the duty of every
loyal citizen ? is a question that may
arise. The duty Is plain—it can be
said in a few words—to come forth
boldly in defence of our Government;
to come with the inborn conviction
that his duty calls him—duty not only
to his country, but his duty to his God
and his fellow man. To boldly stand
in the ranks of those who aro willing
to give all they have, if need be, their
blood, as a sacrifice upon the altar of
their country. Though dark the pros
pect before us, let .us not give way to
fears—such fears as may naturally
arise under the circumstances, but let
us feel like throwing ourselves, as a
nation, into the strife; feeling that our
trust is in a higher power than man,
entering into the geld as did our fore
fathers, with a firm reliance on a Su.•
Contrary to our expectations, our
Regiment is still in camp here. Where
wo will go, or in what part of the
country we will be called ufion to de
fend the glorious Stars and Stripes, are
questions such as cannot be answered
at present. Various rumors aro afloat,
which, of course, cannot be relied on.
Let us be called into the field, and I
feel confident that the 84th Regiment
will do her duty.
The Regiments formerly encamped
at Camp Crosman still remain here.—
Doubtless, however, one or two Regi
ments will leave the present week.
Col. Maxwell's 57th Regiment left

Effect of the English News in this

CINCINNATI, Dec. 16.—The English
news produced a profound sensation in
commercial and financial circles, and
the impression seems to be general that
there is great danger of war with Eng
land. Whilst the people admit that if

due apology should be made, they at
the same time assert that if his act
was right no humiliating: concessions
ought to be entertained for a moment
to England or any other Power.
PITTSBURG, Dec. 16.—The English
news was received here with general
astonishment and profound indignation
at the tone of the English press and
the alleged policy of the British Gov

country must be maintained, and no
concessions made to English bluster.

The Tone of Commercial Letters
CALM AFTER A STORM.
NEW YORK, Dee. 18.—The Everting
Post learns from commercial letters of
the highest character from London,
that the British government proposes
to seek explanations of the Trent af
fair, and perhaps an apology will be
asked for an irregular proceeding, but
no mention is made of a demand for
the surrender of the rebel prisoners.—
The English writers of these letters
