Recollections of The Irons° of 'York."
My notice of the "House of York," in con
nection with the death of Mr. Read, publish
ed in the Globe a few weeks ago, seems to
have touched a sympathetic string in the
heart of one of its old inmates, and soon a
voice responsive is heard, speaking io us
from the far distant and beautiful plains of
lowa, bearing evidence to the truthfulness of
my remarks. The tones are familiar and I
at once recognized them as coming from our
friend Major Campbell. The Major in his 1 :
remarks confines himself to his first year
there, and his description of the boarders is
just such as might be expected from his pen,
well said' and excellent. Poor McCoy, so
fond of controversy, it was very amusing to
see how skillfully he could change sides, on
finding you agree to an opinion advanced by
himself; then so good hearted and kind, be
loved by all.
My time at the "House of York" common
ced later; I think in the fall of 1837, and ex
tended to the Spring of 1841. On first going
there I found all the inmates spoken of by
the Major, except the Benedict family, who
had gone to housekeeping. Since writing
the above I have seen a communication from
some writer in the Globe over the signature
of 8., and nt first was led to believe from his
general accuracy, that the writer was an old
member, but when he speaks of the lamented
Dickson, as having on Ids death bed courted
and won the heart of Miss-, one of its
inmates, be is slightly in error, and I pre
sume has it from hearsay. She was not a
member till sometime afterwards. The true
little romantic story is as follows: Mr. Geo.
M. Dickson, the young man spoken of, be
came an inmate of the "House of York" dur
ing my time there, I think in 1839. He was
a graduate of Jefferson College, tall, intellir
gent, handsome, and light of foot as a young
roe, and could easily outstrip any of us iu
the manly sports of running and leaping, so
.much practiced in those days.
And then the young lady was so beautiful,
so interesting, so intelligent, so accomplished,
fresh from hoarding school, and reputed an
heiress ; is it to be wondered at then that she
had many suitors ? But then young Dickson
woo her affections, distancing his competi
tors with the sane ease he could in a foot
race. They first met nt the residence of her
step father, were mutually pleased with each
other, and a friendship was soon formed
which ended in love, and it was well known
to their intimate friends that a marriage en
gagement existed, long before it was known
that the fell destroyer consumption had mark
ed him for its victim. And when in the fall
of 1840 sickness confined that poor young
man to the house, far from home and the
endearing attentions of n fond mother, sis
ters and kindred, end dark clouds settled
thick around him, her constant and loving
heart clung to him all the more. 0, it was a
I ,beautiful sight and one that the pure oyes of
an angel might look on approvingly, to see
her day after day call, and in company with
her aunt, than an inmate of the house, render
him such little endearing attentions as only
the kind heart of woman knows how to be

HUNTINGDON, May 18G8
We had the pleasure of witnessing
an interesting ceremony on Friday
evening last, at the Jackson House of
this place. About a dozen of the
boarders, who have organized them
selves into a society styled the Fra
ternity of Johns, were mot in session
in the parlor for the purpose of pre
senting a silk hat to the proprietor,
Mr. Wm. Long. That gentleman ap
pearing shortly after they had met,
Mr. "John" B. was called upon to de
liver the presentation speech, which
ho did in a neat and impressive man
ner. After the presentation ceremo
ny was concluded, remarks were made
by several of the "Johns" present,
which combined the sublime, ludicrous
and sentimental. Throughout the
evening the enjoyment was uninter
rupted, and all who were present have
a "fixed" pleasure since in referring to
the good time on Friday night.
