Deeoration Day.
Saturday last will be a day long to
be remembered by our citizens and
those who witnessed the ceremonies of
decoration day in our borough.. The
principal ceremony was the strewing
of flowers and wreaths on the graves
of the fallen braves from this county
that aro buried in the Cemetery—a
tribute of respect and gratitude to the
heroes that we trust will ho kept up
until our nation shall cease to exist.
At an early hour in the afternoon the
Court House was filled with people,
and the lino of march was shortly ta
ken up toward to the Cemetery bead
ed by the Huntingdon Silver Cornet
Band, which. played the Dead March
in such a sweet but mournful manner
that not a few were so impressed with
tho solemnity of the occasion that the
tears started to their eyes. A silent
prayer was offered up for the brave
fathers who slept as the boys and girls
of the Cassville Soldiers' Orphans School
rnarched past neatly dressed in army
blue, and thankful indeed should every
patriot be to see the loved ones of the
dead Soldiers fondly cared for arid in.
structed at thee° homes which grace
our Commonwealth.
On arriving at the Cemetery the
order of exercises was opened by the
Orphans singing "My country 'tis of
thee," after which Bey. J. W. Plannett
offered a prayer. Next followed read
ing of the General Orders of the G. A.
R. in relation to the ceremony, when
Milton S Lytle, Esq , then delivered
the following address :-
SOLDIERS AND CITIZENS :—On this memorial
occasion, this second recurrence of our new
national anniversary, we have assembled at
the request of the surviving soldiers and in re
sponse to the sympathies of our own hearts, to
render some token of honor and veneration
to those who went down to death in that
great struggle which is still so fresh in our
And in doing this, is it not in accordance
with the motives which should actuate us to
hope for some incidental benefits to ourselves?
May we not experience a renewal of our pa
triotism and feel a glow of gratification and
delight in contemplating the perpetuity of
national life which has been secured for us?
If it be of any value to observe with fitting
ceremonies the day that gave birth to our in
dependence, how much more important that
we commemorate, appropriately, the services
that saved us from the most inglorious death
that could have been aimed at a nation. Let
us, "by public assembly and by solemn obser
vance, by anthem and by eulogy," extol the
valor and achievements of our national bene
factors and render thanks to God fur eminent
blessings, early given and long continued, to
our highly favored country.
Wo are here, my friends, for the purpose
of placing wreaths of flowers and evergreens
on the graves of our fallen comrades, whose
remains lie in this Cemetery. This simple
service is in honor of men fur whom the last
sad rite was not performed when they were
borne to this final resting place—men who
took their lives in their hands and boldly
ventured and lost them in defence of the
country they valued more than self. If we
were to come here with each return of this
beautiful season, and place the richest gar
lands on their mounds, if we were to shed
floods of tears that could TERSE be dried, if
we were to inscribe their names on entabla
tures bread as the earth itself, the debt which
we, as a people, owe them, could never be
paid. How spiritless, how inexpressive; how
insignificant is all that we can do or say to
manifest our admiration and gratitude, com
pared with what they deserve?
Peace to the patriot's shade? Let no rude
hand disturb the laurels that lest on his tomb!
'Lot orphan tears bedew his sacred urn.
Aud [sine's lend truinp.proclaint the hero's Same, •
Ear as the cit cult of the spheres extends."
But the purpose I have mentioned is not
the only one fur which wo are here. Great
and grand as that purpose is, yet the time
1 and the occasion rise into sublimity when we
remember that the ceremonies of to-day are
figuratively designed to recall and preserve
the memory of that vast army that lies in
trenched on many fields. Those who sleep
in honored graves among their kindred are
but a few when we think of the thousands
who went and returned not. I know that of
this large assemblage of the living, by far the
greater portion do not find hare the more im
mediate objects of their affection and rover
, Once. Each heart reverts to the scene of car
nage in which it was bereaved. The name
of every battle field is in our minds or on
our lips. Touching and melancholy as it
might seem, it would, nevertheless be a pleas
ure to tell you where and how those brave
men fell, to recount their gallant deeds, their
patriotic endurance and their self sacrificing
devotion. But I cannot go from Gettysburg
to the Rio Grande to point out each spot that
was crimsoned by a soldier's blood. From
Sumter to Appomattox, though but a few
years, in point of time, embraced the events
of ages. Those things have passed into his
tory,- and already fill a considerable part of
its volumes. As we comprehend the extent
of the theme, we see the inadequacy of
words to do justice to the memory of the
dead or to repay the services of these who
With peculiar propriety, the humble trib
ute we endeavor to pay, by strewing the
fresh flowers of Spring on the graves of de

pardons in the hardships and participants in
the perils of the fallen—the veterans who
have resumed the garb of civilians and re
turned to their peaceful pursuits and to their
accustomed places in the community. If moth-
ors forget not their sons, nor wives their hus
bands, not' orphans their fathers, per sisters 1
their brothers, neither will these men forget
the comrades who fell by their sides. My
voice is heard by ears that have caught the
last words of the dying—flowers will be
strewn to-day by hands that have closed ex•
piring eyes, and laid the dead to slumber,
with no "useless coffin" to enclose his breast,
no "martial cloak" but the rough blanket in
which ho had often rested his weary limbs
after the day's march. The performance of'
these tender and brotherly offices was a duty
surpassed in sadness only by the necessity
which sometimes came upon us of surrender
ing the field to an enemy that cared not to
give decent sepulture to our dead and who
buried them, if buried at all, where the
graves will be forever unmarked and un
Among the many results scoured by these
annual offerings, of honor and respect, the
soldiers, who are now here as citizens, net
only re-open the hearts of a generous anti
grateful people, but keep alive fraternal feel
ings among themselves. They are reminded
-again of the many occurrences of the war—
the earliest as well as the latest. They
think of the conflicts on the Peninsula, com
mencing almost with the disembarkation at
Fortress Monroe, continuing up to the very
gates of Richmond, including the Seven Dap
Rattles, and ending when our army OA re.
fuge at Harrison'a - Landing. Then followed
the witdrawal - from the James river,' the sec
ond disaster at Bull's Run and tho retreat in
to Maryland, where, under Providence, we
were permitted to retrieve the glory and re
putation of our arms. I see those here who
may well remember that September day on
the banks of tho Antiotard. They have not
forgotten the sifetit •mitreh'of the night be
' fore, when not even a whisper was allowed
in the ranks, not a sound that could warn
the enemy of their movements: Rapidly
passed the remaining hours that separated fee

where troops had never gone before, and
where none went afterwards.
The limited time I can occupy to-day will
not permit mo tb give even a passing notice
to the More important of the battles in which
soldiers from Huntingdon county were en
gaged. They fought and - fell,' not only on

Nothing , Its.been more thoroughly tried
and proved la experience than the qualities
of the American soldier. So numerous, in
deed, are the evidences of his courage, his in
trepidity, and his steadinessin battle, that it
isimpossible to fell what particular instance
most demonstrates his Merits. Ile has been
described as the civilized, sober, well educa
ted citizen, animated with the consciousness
that he, was fighting fora great cause, in the
success of which he and his children had a
deep, personal interest, and who learned obe
dience because both his common sense and
his sense of duty recognized the necessity. I
have said that he has returned to his peace
ful avocation. Long may it be until he shall
be called from it again. But we may feel a
safe reliance on his strong arm, if it shall
ever hereafter be needed to defend our coun
try's interests against any foe, he it British
dominion on the north of us, Mexican anar
archy on the south, or Spanish despotism on
the islands of the se.i.
The presence of so many of the people of
this community and county hero to-day,
shows that our eyes have not grown dull, our
hands slack, nor our hearts cold in this sa
cred trust. The spirit that has brought us
here, is very similar to that which has been
displayed in other places by the erection of
memorials to render secure and enduring the
name and fume of our heroic fallen. How
soon shall a monument rise heavenward from
this ground to acquaint future generations
with the mighty deeds that have been done in
these days! Let us, in the first place, per
petuate the records of the men who accom
plished this great work, and then transmit a
knowledge of the means by which it was done.
Let the hardships - that have been endured,
the difficulties that have been encountered,
the perils that have been met, the examples
of unselfish patriotism that have been given,
and the romance that has been added to the
story of the human race, go down together,
unforgotten, through nll coming time. I
would embody in marble and brass the senti
ment of the poet;
"Abek arbentlieir statues are placed on high
Under filo dorm nt tho Union sky,—
Thu American soldier's temple of Fame,
There Aria. the glorious General's name,
Ile it said in letters both bold and bright .
Hers is Vic steed Mae saved the day
By earr,ying Sheridan into thefighl
From ifinc4ester—twenty miles away."
I cannot believe that any fail to realize and
appreciate the sacrifice that has been made
in defense of our personal safety, in mainte
nance of free government and in support Of
the integrity of the Union. Though we are
not here to do honor in the durable and last
ing manner in which it should be bestowed,
though this ceremony is to be plain and Un
ostentatious, yet we may trust that it will so
sink into our hearts that the glory of their
deeds and the light of their example will
never fade.
After the address the Orphans sang
a' piece entitled "O'er my Father's
Grave,"after which the following poem
was read by Mr. Robert McDivitt:
COMO I -cliff-girt Juniata,
Thy pities' /Dam moan!
Some "Storied Urn or Statue,"
Shall cheer the gloom
Of their dark tomb,—
The good who bled,—
Thy honored Dead
And bravo of "Standing Stone."
When Freedom's loud Reveille
Stirred Gettysburg's dark field ;
And Fiend of fell Rebellion
Piled hill and plain
With her brave slain;—
Their memories claim
A greener fame
Than stone and marble yield.
Comrades in death shall greet them
From many a field of gore,—
Bull Run and red Ardlotatn,—
Whore fierce the strife
'Gainst Freedom's life,
By Heaven accurst,
In thunder burst
Above Potomac's your.
From Hundred of Bermuda,
From Richmond and Shiloh,
Atlanta, Chattanooga
To patriot eyes,
Her heroes rise f--
From every sod
Pale Freedom trod—
In those dark days of woe.
Shades of departed soldiers!
"Comrades of battle" elain !
Though the marred body moulders
In earth to rust—
Yet, o'er your dust—
Shall laughing May
And Flora gay,
Their wreathe and laurels train.
When blushing, Borealis,
To north, wins Sol abroad;
Spring peeps o'er hilts and valleys;
With emerald sheen
To dock the green
Sward of the grave,
Whore sleep the breve
Till roused by tramp of God.
So as, from east, Aurora
Gilds earth with gorgeous day,
May soldiers' graves of glory,
Through tears and blood,
in beauty—bud;
And fragrant floyfpr,l,
In crimson ehtivrera,
Be wept upon their cloy.
The members of the Post at this
place then formed in lino and marched
to the graves of the soldiers, where
they strewed the flowers and wreaths.

DARING ROBBER.--0a Friday last

tatirant to 'get a glass of lager,' and
while there felt some one feeling about
his person; but did not discover his
toss until the train had proceeded seine
distance toward this city. The station
spoken of must have been Huntingdon,
that being the only station between
Mifflin and Altoona where trains stop
long enough to allow passengers to
partake of refreshments. The belt
was cut and slipped off'. Another
German having paid fair in the cars

grants) to this city, on the arrival of

"Oh I" which was continued about
eight or ton times. The fears of those
who heard it were awakened, and

House to see -what vas the matter.—

nothing was seen to verify the =suspi

other awful tragedy had been commit

to take notes, but our calculations in
regard to something terrible to tell our

being informed that the unearthly

the question whether it pays a man to
invest ut hOtne, there are some things
to be looked at. We have intimated
that it depends upon what a man in, and the discretion - be uses.
A man might throw his money away,
very easily: For instance; somebody
wants to make a speculation in oil, or
in some other imaginary article (for
which it requires a great deal of faith
to realize the substance,) and away
men go after the fancy idol, and in, the
and they lose their money, in a major
ity of instances. In this connection
we might also mention lotteries, where
a man will go ten or more dollars in

tie,Montioned, but ono which claims
particular, attention, and which we
hinted ae,before is. the too great desire
of many. to follow in the same steps of
another, instead of taking some other
direction; in other words the folly of
too many in starting the same kind of
int - sinus. - ,We have noticed that in our
town no new thing lasts a year of it
self. An enterprising man sees what
the town wants, and ho goes to the
expense and trouble of getting it.
When once in operation the hawks are
around to find out whether it pays,and
Wit does, np starts a few more institu

effect of disheartening the enterpris
ing man, and fooling those who expec
ted to make a fortune. Of course, the
people are the gainers of the competi
tion that immediately follows, but
would it not be wiser for those who
have money to invest to give it to,
some new object? IMPROVEMENT.
