CARPETS. NEW STORE IN HUNTINGDON. JAMES A. BROWN has just opened CARPET STORE The thermometer is nine degrees be low zero and yet it is falling. 'Tie very cold l How it snows! flow it blows I Ugh, the chills run over me. Thank God I have this comfortable shelter—wonder if the poor aro all en joying comfort, or if there is any mor tal obliged to endure this weather shelterless, without the comfort of a cheerful grate ? Ah, the fire is pleas ant, I will change my coat for my wrapper; my boots for my slippers, and take ease in my old arm chair. Thus, solliloquized Dr. Blanchard, af ter he had arrived safely home from Colton five miles distant, where he had been called professionally. After seating himself in the old arm chair, which was one of olden style and occupied a place in the homestead since the days of his great grand fath er—consequently it was considered a relic of more than ordinary value, he examined the package of mail he had received on hie way home. Letter after letter was opened. One inquired about this disease and another that. Some wished one prescription, some another, and a few advocated the true princi ple of honesty by enclosing amount duo. "What can this he ?" he loudly re• marked, picking up at the same time a paper. "Literary Caseaon," "that's something new," he said, for that was the heading. "I am glad to have something of this kind to read such blustery evenings." Column after col• umn was perused until suddenly his eyes fell on an article entitled, "Wee to the Bachelor," by C****. Now the Doctor was one of that peculiar title and of course was interested. It was a very imprudent article, thought he. Why are we called monstrous? Why vagabonds, inhuman, forlorn, &c? I term it indecent—the essence of perti nonce and I will retaliate. "Where is my pen and pencil ?" ho.muttered as he arose from the chair. Soon they were at hand and the old chair again occupied. A few moments reflection PLOWS, THRESHING MACHINES, 1.. , and the Doctor proceeded thus on the eccond floor of hie brick building, where buyers will find one of the largest and best assortments of BRUSSELS, INGRAIN, DUTCH WOOL, COTTON, RAG, LIST, VENITIAN and SCOTCH HEMP €o l n,i-p4E3t:s s , Alen, COCOA and CANTON MAT TINGS, and FLOOR OIL CLOTHS, Ever offered in central Pennsylvania.

DOCTOR BLANCHARD, OR THE BACHELOR'S LOVE When I eaid I would die a bachelor, I did not think I should lire till l. were married.— Shakepcare. DAMIELOR, He 18 called, old bachelor, Monstrosity of life, Vagabond, forlorn, inhuman, Because he chooeeth not a wife Yes, ho is called old bachelor, old vagabond, forlorn specimen of human ity, &o. All because ho prefers happi ness to that of sorrow; peace to that of rebellion and prosperity to that of adversity. Old bachelor ! simply be cause he prefers single blessedness to that of double thunder. Was not every man born free and equal and of the same inalienable rights? Has he not•the privilege; the pleasure—yea. the power of doing as he pleases? Cannot man enwrap himself in the blessedness of single statedness with out every body pointing their fingers at him and endeavoring to stamp the blush of shame where all is right, bright and a happy future ? Is he an old forlorn specimen of humanity, simply because ho prefers quietness to an in fant bedlam ? Is be an old cold heart ed wretch because he would ten thou sand times rather live in a hut, or dilapidated hovel by himself, than in a large mansion or beautiful palace with a woman who is continually scolding, eternally brawling and everlastingly yammering? Is be an old vagabond —monstrosity of social life, because he prefers the company of his favorite dog, or affectionate cat to that of Miss Wonder, Miss Thunder or old Mrs. Pollywant? As ouo in the name of all that is true, harmless and good ask, why do people strive to heap on our shoulders that which is unjust, that which would cause angels to frown and devils to blush. Ab, methinks I hear them say, "we know not what we do." My heart is made to throb— yet they say it is flinty; my pulse is made to beat, my eyes sparkle and my whole soul is made to tremble when I gaze around me and view the picture of sorrow, want, grief and despair, arising from the great fear of being an old bachelor. See the great panorama spread out before us. View each pic ture closely and singly, observe the poverty, wretchedness, disgrace and criminalities. See the unhappy homes, the discontented views and the miser able little ones. How many have orig inated from the fear of being an old bachelor? Would it not be better for huldreds ; yea thousands of men if they were enjoying the solitude of a happy bachelor's life? Would it not have been better if they had done as I have done? Endured the fears and sneers of a portion of inexperienced humani ty and allowed themselves to become forlorn ? Take all things into consid- I oration and remember that if the old bachelor is a poor forlorn devil, the 1 poor forlorn devil deserves his due. After finishing the production, then reading it and re-reading it; making an erasure occasionally and punctua ting accordingly, be seemingly sat in profound study. "Step out to tea, Doctor," said a lit tle intruder who bad suddenly flung open the door• and popped in. Arousing from his reverie, the Doc tor arose and obeyed the summons. At table he appeared unusually quiet. Hastily partook of a frugal re past then returned to his MS. "What is the matter with the Doc tor this evening?" ;staked Mies Mary De'Forest, a frequent and distinguish l • ad visitor of the family with Whom the Doctor had preferred his home. "Likely he has a difficult patient," suggested Mrs. Climpson, the lady of the honso, BLAKE & bIoNEIL. -PERSEVERE.- BY TRANI. I ~ ( 1 47` JCVIY ' "Bachelors aro frequently quiet.— What solitude they must endure," re marked Mrs. Climpson's mother, with a smile. Many were the surmises, sugges. tions and remarks relative to the Doc tor, but of course no one was the wiser. After the Doctor had returned to his room, lit his favorite "havens" and occupied his former position in the old chair, ho resumed study of the subject before him in this wieo. Who can C**** he ? Perhaps 'tis Clare Rou. tette. If so I would bo immediately suspected as the author of this com munication, should it appear before the public eye. I will pursue a different course. It'twas Claro I will know it. Clare Roulette was a young man of great ability. Ho was an original ge nius and a young man whose every act foreshadowed a prosperous future. He was the only son of a wealthy pa rent, Major John Roulette. The Maj or was of very humble heritage, his father being a laboring man, and at the breaking out of the war of 1812 ho Enlisted as a private where be con• tracted a severe cold which termina tad in consumption—finally death. Consequently the Major, four brothers and three sisters with the mother, were left to the guidance and guardianship of Divine Providence. The Major, or rather John, left the parental roof very soon after the death of his father, he being the eldest of the eight children. It was one of those whole souled, benevolent neighbors that took John—reared him-up in the way of wisdom and taught him her paths were the paths of peace. At the age of eighteen ho began an apprenticeship with a shoemaker, that being his favorite trade. Time rolled on. At the business he became an ex pert. So rapidly did be learn, that on one occasion before he donned "appren tice" for 'jour," his boe3, be being a dutchman, remarked, "Sb on will soon be more as able to instruct as to be in structed." What a gala day when John was free. Not only with himself, but with the old boss who presented John with a freedom suit worthy the occasion and a purse of fifty dollars. Extend ing the latter, he said, "Shon I gives you dish. You leaves to-morrow—your fortune you seeks. Alwsys remember your old boss, and Shon, always mind the great principle of honesty ish the goot policy; mind dat Shon and you'll be a rich man." The morrow at hand, all things in readiness, John Roulette started out on his own responsibility as journey man shoemaker•. Every effort he made proved successful. All work was done on the principle of honesty —ho seemed destined to prosper. By strict attention to business on a grand moral principle he soon became pro- prietor of a large wholesale and retail boot and shoe store. At this business he continued to flourish until one day, as ho termed it, "becoming tired of the monotonous handling' of leather," he became speculator in land. Even in this, prosperity forsook him not. One successful speculation after another added so immensely to his store of wealth, that to•day he is worth four hundred thousand dollars. "God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform." The poor journeyman shoemaker a few years ago is now John Roulette, the wealthy Major. About the time Major preferred new business ho preferred himself a part ner by choosing the only daughter of Hon. T. Gale a highly respectable citi zen in the same town which he resided. They had two children. Besides Clare, whom I have already mention ed, there was Olive, frequently called the "idolized," originating from her ap pearance at home as well as in society. Always pleasant and agreeable. A friend to the poor as well as to the more fortunate. Clare considered her unequaled, excepted by one. She was pretty. A truer heart never beat, a purer soul never lived. "A soft subduing grace around her breath ed." "Each free and joyous word, that flowed In music from her tongue, Like gush of marble fountain, showed The pure source whence it sprung. I never saw a cloud come o'er Her brow of virgin snow, Except when pity bade her pour, The tear for others' woe." It was ono of those beautiful May evenings after Clare's correspondence to the "Cassaon" that Dr. Blanchard loft H.—, after visiting a patient, and while passing through the town a storm overtook him. Tho clouds grew heavier and darkness enshrouded the earth. One peal of thunder after an other rent the very heavens. Amethy stine flame after flame froliced in their forked course across the horizon. The Doctor rode - on, thinking "it would soon blow over, perhaps pass around." Ho was mistaken. Scarcely bad he left the town until the rain and hail fell thick and heavily. nastily rein ing up his !steed, alighting at a gate of a very large yard in front of a brick mansion, ho hitched hie horse, opened the gate and soon' took shelter in a grape arbor which afforded little pro. tection from the icy missiles that fell regardless of objects. The rain soon began to find its way through the leafy covering,the Doctor decided to retreat. Imagine his surprise when discovering the horse which ho left at the gate bad already bade farewell to Doctor, hitch ing strap and post to lead the advance. He concluded to remain and maim the best of it. Down ho sat meditating exposure of physicians, wet doctor, horse gone, and worst of all ten miles to walk. When would he got home 7 How would he got there (1) were questions arising in his mind. Soon the rain abated. The "golden orb" once more sent forth his invigorating rays TERMS, $2,00 a year in advance. through the heavy mist which over hung the earth. Nature assumed a different aspect. Sublime were his thoughts as he sat in the arbor view ing the beauty of the enclosure. Flow ers were on every side, representing nearly every color in the rainbow, while at the same time, the bow had arched itself across the eastern sky. LETTER FROM INDIA The following is the copy of a pri vate letter from Rev. J. D. Brown, who for eight years past has been sta tioned as a missionary in India: In Camp at Golagokam Nath,l Oudh, India, March 8, 1869. Another day's active duties are over, and I have time to write you at least another page. Suppose I give you a resume of to-day's work. This will give you a pretty fair specimen of missionary work of several kinds. I was about at daylight and my native cook had me a cup of tea ready by the time I had dressed. This "chote haz ari" (little breakfast) is the universal custom in India, and in a country which gives a home to so many stom ach and liver diseases, a cup of tea and a toast before going out in the morning are real preventatives from disease, at least to a great extent, and I am not sure but that the same ens torn would prove beneficial in Ameri ca, especially in the regions in whiob fever and ague frequently prevail. This over, 1 sallied forth with one of my native preachers by name Ab dul Ali. We met a few persons and scattered some Gospel seed, much of which doubtless fell by the wayside. AL about 8 o'clock, we returned to my tent and I devoted an hour in the not by any means light duty devolving upon me as a member of the Confer ence Publishing Committee, viz: re viewing or rather examining a manu script on Theology in the Urdu lan• guage. There are three members of the committee, and all MSS. in Urdu and Hindi, designed for publication at our mission press, have to pass through our hands and undergo inspection and criticism. If a MSS. is accepted by the committee, it is forwarded to the man ager of the press for publication, but if rejected it goes back to the author. Next came breakfast, which consist ed of boiled rice and "chichki," an In dian dish consisting of 'green peas, cabbage, potatoes, "ghi," (clarified but ter,) and a number of Indian spices. Yon would probably hay& condemned the whole affair, but to an "old Indi an" like me, it is no mean dish. With this I had a cup of good coffee. While at breakfast the village postman hand ed me a letter from my wife, a copy of the Globe of January 13th and the Christian. Advocate of January 14th.— These papers had been read and sent to my camp by my wife. A few min utes had of course to be devoted to these highly prized weekly visitors from home, after which my native preachers came in to prayers At about noon I went out to visit a Government Anglo-vernacular school, near at hand. Spent over an hour in examining the boys in the various lan guages taught, i. e., English, Urdu, Hindi and Persian. I concluded with an address in which I did not forget to introduce religion, wrote my opinion of the school in the "Visitor's Book," and returned to my tent: Spent ano ther hour on the Urdu manuscript and wrote a letter to my wile. In the meantime my cook was preparing my dinner, which consisted of grilled chic ken, boiled potatoes and very good cold slaugh, or rather hot slaugh, which by the way I had taught my cook how to make. Dinner was over at 5 o'clock, and taking ono of my native preachers I started for the Bazaar, for onr regular evening preaching. I had no trouble in collecting a good sized crowd on the street, to which I triad to explain the folly of idolatry, and the way of salva tion through Christ. When I had spoken about half an hour I intro duced my native preacher and sat just behind him, while he followed up my sermon with a solemn warning con cerning the awful end to which'thoy were fast hastening. While he was speaking, an impudent Brahmin came into the crowd and tried hard to get the people to go away and leave that "babbler," who as ,he said, was only talking nonsense; but two or three persona turned on him with unusual independence, (for the people general ly are afraid of the Brahmins,) and told him that if he did not wish to hear ho could go about his business and not trouble them. By the time my native preacher had finished his address it was getting dark. So we turned our faces toward our tents, which we reached just as dark had settled down over the grove. A cup of tea was relished after the hard work of out-doer preaching, which by the way is much more tiresome than preaching in a church. The Globe claimed a little more attention; ppen• ing it I found and read through care. fully Governor Geary's Annual Mes sage, which I consider a very able State paper. May old Pennsylvania always have as clear-headed a man as General Geary at the helm of State. I was also much gratified to learn from another column that the caucus of Re publican Senators and Representatives had honored themselves by unanimous ly nominating our friend Ron. John Scott for a seat in the United States Senate. I have no doubt he was duly elected, and will prove to be one of the most reliable men in that august body. After finishing the perusal of the Globe my native prenebins and Bible colpor• tours came in to prayers; and I wish you could have heaid and understood the earnest and highly appropriate prayer offered up by one who four NO. 45.

Terms moderate. years ago was a Mohammedan manic', or preacher. lam sure it • would have done you goad. After pleading earn estly for a blessing on the poor, delu ded thousands gathering here in 'the vain hope that they scan wash away their sins in a pool of duty water near at hand, he eontinued his prayer (in Hindostan of course) about thus:— "Now, Lord, why not save these thou sands, yea, all of the people at thieMe la by means of ns thy servants; not that we may get honor thereby, but that thy name may be glorified. There is nothing too hard for thee, 0, Lord I Come then, we entreat thee, and - save save all these people, &0., &c." After prayers my dear native brethren went to their little tent alongside of mine, not forgetting to utter tenderly the genuine oriental salutation "Salaam,"- which means, as you know, "peace."' May God bless those dear servants of Christ One of them has nearly preached his lungs away. I doubt if he will live another year. Just now one of them called nut to the clowki-' dare mentioned in the former part of this letter, "Chowkidar, khabardar mho," i. e., "Watchman, be vigilant." The watchman who was half asleep,. simply gave a grunt and repeated the name of his god "Ram:rara." But heavy eyes warn me that it is time to conclude the recreations ae well as la bors of the day, so with a prayer for you and yours, as well as my owe dear ones, I Bay good night. , March 10.—The people are , gather: ing by thousands, singing the praises of their heathen idols or rather deities, as they come. One or two in a crowd will sing almost through a verse, the. last word of which is "mahadeo,"-but just as he reaches that word ail the crowd, men, women and children,joia in, at the top of their voices, and make the plains ring again with "mabadeo" (the great god.) Sitting in my tont I can see the crowd passing, , like a straggling army, toward the sacred pool. Here aro men with children on their shoulders; there a woman with a, four year old boy naked, with the ex ception of a few charms, principally: consisting of shells, tied around his, neck. The boy sits astraddle of her shoulders; balanced on her bead is a mud vessel, a kind of large jar; before her walks a diminutive donkey, with a, baby in one side of the pannier, and some vegetables, etc., in the other.— Here comes a fakir finely dressed, i. e., his hair, which reaches almost to his heels, is stiff with a rather odorous ointment, which is simply cow dung; over his entire body is smeared a thick ; coat of ashes. This is the amount 'of his toilet, always excepting a string of. sacred wooden beads, which be carries• in his hand, and turning one after ano ther over his fingers, mutters "Ram ram." By - him walks a Mohammedan , fakir, more decently dressed. -He wears no tnrban, and hie long robe is, dyed a dull orange color. This son of the false prophet heartily despises his Hindoo brother—calls him a "kaf fir", a dog, &0., but you observe he too bassi:String obeads, which be counts as be goes, repeating as each,bead drops from his fingers "Alab, labk"' (God, God,) or "Subban Ala, Subban Ala," (Praise God, praise God I) " Here comes a big fat Rajah riding on an elephant. Before him rides a. man on horse-back, with an old fash ioned boo-hive shaped drum banging. on either side of his horses, shoulders, like a cavalryman's holsters. These. drums he beats vigorously, but fails to. make as good music as you and I used to bring out of mother's old brass ket tle. Beggar boys by the dozen run beside 'arid behind the elephant, and perform gymnastic feats which far out-do anything old Huntingdon hope fuls dare venture. See yon wiry little: fellow has made a wheel of himself, and throwing ,himself sidewise goad, over and over faster than the 'elephant can walk. At each turn he shouts : "moharar (greatliajah)"Abad raken" (may you live for ever.) Servants, dressed in all styles precede and follow "his majesty," some on camels, some, on horses, others on mules, asses and bullocks, Red many on foot. Next follows a long line of pilgrims, each. carrying a basket filled with diminu, tive bottles of Ganges water on each end of a bamboo, thrown across the shoulder. But enter• the Bazaar.— What a sight! Here are men from Cabul and Cashmere with dried - fruite of various kinds, a step farther brings, us to the shop of an enterprising go ,hammedan. Here you can buy almost ' anything from a row of pins to a Yan kee clock. The shopman recognizee, the "Pudu sohib" (me) and lISIFS me to grant him prosperity for the day .by buying something. Now wo meet some boys who attend the English schools in various parts of the district. Not wishing to lose so fair an opportu nity for displaying their English, they step forward and say (just remember it is 4 o'clock, P. M.) "Good morning, isir," (they cannot say "sir" without putting an i before it,) "are your hon-. or well?" Remembering distinctly our own blunders when we began to talk Hindostan, we smile as easily as possible, and answer in a language' they understand much better than they ever will English. But preach. ing hour has come. See yonder crowd listening to my native preachers ex pounding the word of life. I must go and take my turn, for the crowd wilk not disperse until after dark: T.
