To the Citizens of Huntingdon
Last winter the Young Men's Chris
tian Association gave a series of lec
tures that were a source of much pleas
ure, and served greatly to enliven the
town. The Association desire to get
up a course of from six to ten lectures
and readings for the coming winter,
but as they suffered financially by last
winter's course, and as it is hardly fair
to ask a young society, working only
for the public good, to bear the risk
and responsibility of so large a course
of lectures, they propose the following
plan for the coming winter, in order
that they may feel assured beforehand
that they will be sustained in their
effort. A committee will call upon the
citizens of the town and ascertain how
many will take "SEASON TICKETS;"
price five dollars; each ticket to admit
two to the whole course. If about
one hundred and fifty season tickets
can be sold, the Association will im
mediately communicate with John B.
Gough, John G. Saxe, Mrs. Randall,
and other popular lecturers, and if pos
sible secure their services; if the tick
ets cannot be sold the Association can
not bear the risk, and the lecture pro
ject will have to be abandoned. The
cry generally is '•how dull is this old
town ;" the opportunity is now offered,
which if accepted and patronized, will
insure many evenings of true pleasure
and entertainment. In a financial view
this plan is advantageous to the buyer
of season tickets, for it a single admis
sion were fifty cents, in a course of six,
eight or ten lectures, the cost for two
would be six, eight or ten dollars.

A young horse belonging to - Mr.
Logan, County:Treasurer, became un
manageable-in the Diamond, on Fri
day morning last. Mr. L. was trying
to break it of running to the stable
every time he passed, and he used the
whip to do it. The horse not liking
this forcible training commenced back

theii started off on a double quick to

from being dragged by knocking the
lines off his feet with his hands.

Mr. Hight's bed chamber, when he was

clothing. Mr. 11. followed the thief
down stairs, but he slipped off before
he could be caught. The burglar left
a butcher knife in Mr. Hight's bed

murder was intended.

A correspondent of an exchange thus
describes the now furnace at Riddles.

T. R. R
"The furnace of the Kemblo Coal and
Iron, Company, at Riddlesburg, was
completed and put in successful opera
tion on.the first inst. his one Of the
finest hot .blast furnaces in the United
States. Work was commenced on its
construct in on May 20,1868, by ex
cavating and grading railriiad siding
and getting in stone.„- A. stack 44 feet,
high, of stone, and 16 feet of boiler
iron, was built. The" hearth
wall are of best quality of fire-brick.
There are two hot blast ovens, of Play
er's patent, containing' ,100 tons of
castings, ono steam.blast engine, with
steam cylinder 32 inches in diameter,
6 feet stroke, a blast cylinder 6 feet in
diameter, 6 feet stroke, capable of pro
ducing from 5,000 . to 6,000 cubic feet
of air per mitiute','six boilers, each 36
inches in diameter and 45 feet long,
with mud boiler and steatn,drums at.

ing. Stock is delivered'at the trundle•
head by' water-lift, 'the water being
supfilied for lift and tuyerers by two
Cameron steam-pumps, capable of de
livering ono thousand gallons of Water
per minute. In fact all modern im
provements in furnace-building have
been introduced. `The furnace is con
structed for using coke as fuel, and it
is calculated that a sinall*ainount of
raw coal can be 'used successfully.
Coke is made in the Pittsburg oven, of
Broad Top Coal and so fur has proved
an entire success. It does not furnish
as largo an amount of gas as was an
ticipated, but a little time and raw
coal will overcome this difficulty. :The
amount of iron that will be made per
day is yet to bo determined, but it is
estimated that at least 20 tons will be
produced every 24 hours, and-possibly
this'rate may be exceeded. The stack
and ovens contain 250,000 firebrick
and about 300,000 common brick. The
furnace will consume 80 tons of coal
per day and about 6,000 tons of lime
stone per year. About 24 tons of the
fossil ore used at the furnace, will
make a ton of metal. The Company
own in fee simple a large tract of coal
and ore lands, the best and most ac
cessible in that region, and have with
in themselves all tho elements of suc
cess in the manufacture of Pig iron.
Daniel Worden, Esq , is the Superin
tendent of the works, and is a gentle
man admirably qualified to discharge
the onerous duties of that responsible
position. The company could not have
made a better selection. .In truth, the
furnace at Riddlesburg is a splendid
achievement and will add greatly to
the wealth and prosperity of our.coun
try. It is, however, only the pioneer
of other works of a similar character,
which will soon follow." M. J.
Mr. John Fulton, Resident Engineer,
writing of this enterprise says: "Dur
ing the first week of its operations it
made 86/ tone of superior No. 2 grey
foundry metal. When full load and
blast shall be attained, it is expected
that 150 tons of metal per' week will

old proverb is true—‘misfortune comes
not singly,' but it is evident also that
the converse of this proposition is also
truth. For, during the progress of the

Pittsburgh Female College.
We have recieved the fourteenth
annual catalogue of this first class in
stitution from Dr. Pershing, its worthy
President. We learn from this cata
logue that there have been in atten
dance during the past year two hun•
dred and ninety-four ladies. This
shows the continued prosperity of this
widely known institution of learning,
and the general estimation in which it
is held. Ite students are not only from
the most prominent and influential
families in our midst, but they flock
hero from the extreme west, and also
from the cast. The faculty number
over twenty teachers, and in their tal
ents, their aptness to teach, and their
long experience, cannot be surpassed
by any in the country. The course of
study embraces all that is taught in
our first class institutions The train
ing is thorough, and it is the aim of
the teachers to discipline the mind, to
teach those placed under their care to
think, and not only to learn defini
tions, and whole pages of matter, with
out understanding their meaning.
Although so much attention and
care is bestowed upon the literary de
partment, the ornamental branches
are not neglected. There are five
teachers of music. Instruction is giv
en in French and German by native
teachers. There are also teachers of
drawing, painting, needle-work, wax
work, etc. With such advantages, we
do not hesitate in saying that any pa•
rent sending their (laughter to this
school may feel confident that she will
receive a proper training and acquire
a finished education. The fall term
will open on Wednesday, September

7, is a
question often asked by strangers who
visit it. The invariable reply is, wo
have not the men who wijlimprove it.
It carmot'be - said.witti truth that F.P
have not - IVO wealth,' ftif`We believe ,
there is scarcely a town on the line of
the Pennsylvania. Central that posses
ses in its citizens so much capital as
Huntingdon. We do not propose to,
determine.how.ourwealthy men amas
sed their wealth, but of one thing we
are certain, that it has not been by in : ,
vestment in any home enterprise.. The"
investments upon , Whiehrthey bate re
alized heavy percentage were centered
upon foreign institutions that have
benefitted the towns in which they are
located to the extent• in which they
have succeeded. The prosperity of
other localities aro attributable to the
success of.the manufactures in their
midst, and it is this fact which leads
us to comment upon the lack of the
same institutions in our own midst.--
Strangers have good cause to wonder
at our want'oe enterprise Wheti'`they
notice the great natural advantages
which Huntingdon possesses as a
manufactiring*town. The supply of
water is abundant, and the area is suf
ficient, the general health of our citi
zens.warrants the assumption that it
is a , lrealthy location I"and added to
these natural advantages we have two
railroads, one going. oast and west, and
the other south: 'The public roads
leading to and from Huntingdon are
numerous, but it is true they 'are not
the best; but public spirit started
in one direction would soon pervade
and prevail in another, and it would
not ibe long until our public roads
could bo made as good as any in the
State. All that is wanting to make
Huntingdon - one of the largest busi-
nese towns_in the State is a proper
spirit of enterprise to take possession
of the _now laggard propensities of our
citizens. We have many men who
will acknowledge the truth of the re
marks of strangers about the leek of
enterprise in our town, and whilst they
sometimes think of 'doing something,
they have not the heart to pia their
plans in execution. We want more
determination in fulfilling a project and
loss speculation on the probable suc
cess of it. Our town will never grow
if we give up to ruminating on differ
ent enterprises. To succeed in any-;
thing we must first lay our plans and
then work diligently. We could have
had a host of institutions in our town
long ere this -if the thought of them
could bring them here. It'takes more
than this, and much could bo done if
our capitalists would come together,
meditate on some enterprise, and then
resolve to put it up immediately. _
