, MEssas. Enrrotts:—ln an editorial
in your paper of the 11th inst., in - re=
gard to the increased - vote and popula
tion of the borough of Huntingdon,
you use the following language, to wit:
"When the census was taken in 1860
the population was about 2500." I beg
to correct this mistake. By the offi
cial censuai.of 1860 ithe• population of
the borough of Huntingdon was as fol
lows, to wit: White, male, 840; female,
899; free colored, male, 73; female, 78:
total white 1739, colored 151; total
population '9O. If the number of inhab
itants is Dow, as the vote at the late
election indicates, about 3800, the pop
ulation of our borough has doubled in
the last ten years- '
and within the
same period every loot of goound in
the borough has more than doubled in
value. What other borough in the
State can say as much ?
The total population of _Huntingdon
county by the census of 1860, was
27,810. ,Yours, &q., B.

ililleeroitr, fur 1869. We call the - attention
of our Merchants to this now and valuable
little work of reference to the trade of Phila

merchant buying goods, or doing business
with Philadelphia to the extant of a thousand
dollars a year. It will contain a classitiod

professional men of Philadelphia, arranged
in systematic alphabetical order, a well exe

City. In ordering goods, directing corres
pondence, or ascertaining where to obtain
any article of trade, or manufacture, it will be
indispensable to our merchants. Such a
work is much needed, and its popularity, and
the standing of the publishirs, is vouched for

CO'. MR. EDITOR :—Several Of your corres•
pondents, very old and respectable nu' doubt,
seem: to be wonderfully exercised as to the
origin of our PLANTATJON BITTERS. So long
as these bitters are * all that' we represent
them to be, we do not knew that it makes
any difference from whom they come, or from
whence they originated; but for the in forma
tiati of the public generally, and old CAPT.
\VENTZ in particular, we will say that he
told the truth, and that these Bitters origina
ted in the Westlndia Islands—that many of
the ingredients have been favorably used fir
over a century, but our emnbinati n of Calls
aya is entirely new, and our own. The rum
and other materials are the same, and as
your correspondent says, a b,etter' Bitten and
Tonic, is not made. We recommend them
partidularly for dyspeptics, fever, and egos,
loss of appetite, and in all cases where a tonic
and stimulant is required.

.Engine No. 46, used-for hauling
coal trains on the Hollidaysburg
branch, exploded on Monday, at twen
ty minutes past one o'clock, just as
the engineer' started to NM in on the
near Portage Iron Works .and
in the vicinity of Duneansvlle. The
engineer, Robert Patterson, and his
fireman Philip Davis were both killed
instantly.: Mr. Patterson wee thrown
by the violence of the e.Fplosiou a dis
tance of about Eig()Teet, passing over
the new Methodist chureb, across the
pile, and above. t dwelling holm—
alighting in the,; ear end of a lot. The
force of the concussion mangled his
body in a terrible manner—tearing
every bit, of platting from his person
and completely diiemboweling
Ile came down in the vicinity of a
fence and portions of his ,flesh were
thrown between and against the pal
ings. The fireman was knocked over
tho bank and figainst a fence a few
yards from the engine. Tho explosion
stripped the boiler, from the - dome . to
the boiler head, hut only - ,that portion
above the crown sheet. Tho remains
of the deceased were taken 41 Holli
daysburg where an inquest was held
over them. Both men wore rebidents
of Gaysport borough They Ivere mar
ried, and each leave large families.—
Mr. Patterson was about 'forty years
of age and his fireman about fifty-two.
The tracks under the driving wheels
were broken but the engine did not
leave the iron. When the explosion
occurred she was forced . forward a dis
tance of about thirty yards. We have
heard no reason assigned forthe awful
calamity, and as such aeoidents gener
ally result nattily for 'those who may
be on_the engine at.the time, the cause
can only be conjectured. This engine
was recently rebuilt at the works here,
and was said to be one of the 'strong

TUE _PEELING AT TUE CAPITOL.—The
Cabinetmakers that throng the city
have already begun to ply their vocal

has been thumbed and clipped until
there is little left of it to furnish mate
rial for this industrious' class of per
sons. Probably during the' past few
days enough proposals . have "been
made for General Grant's acceptance,
to supply.all the administrations for. a
half-century to come. It is not un
common to hear of one Democrat na
ming a dozen persons for the position
of Seeretary'of the Treasury, that be
fug apparently the office which most
excites their solitOnde. The number
of original Grant men Here is really
astonishing. Tlio departments throng
with those who declare that Grant was
their first and only choice for Presi
dent, and hundreds insist that they
would have resigned had Governor
Seymour !leen elected. The class thus
embraced does not include alone the
overpaid clerks; who, so vigorously
press their twenty per 'cent: claims at
each session of Congrisq; but .geveral
