bring the journal into disrepute, and the mo

Murder on Brood Top.
A most cowardly and cold blooded
murder was committed on Broad Top
near Dudley on Saturday evening the
21st inst., between nine and ten o'clock.
Patrick Mackey, a miner, working in
the coal mine of D. Blair, on his way
home Saturday night from Dudley to
Barnotstown was waylaid and mur
dered near the Barnet Bank ; he was
struck across the back of the neck
and across the forehead with 'a piece
of flat bar-iron, breaking the skull and
injuring the spine. He lingered un
conscious for several hours and died
Sunday morning. Several parties are
under arrest for the commission of the
offence, and warrants are out for oth
ers. We understand that Mr. Mackey
the man who is thus brutally murder
ed was a peaceable, industrious and in
offensive young man. He leaves a
brother and two sisters to mourn his
untimely end. It appears from what
we can learn, that there is a Miners
Union League or Society on Broad
Top which undertakes to regulate the
price of mining coal and other work
in and about the different coal mines;
and on account of one or two men,
members of this League, not getting
the work and the wages they wanted,
no work was permitted by this League
to be done at the Blair wine for the
first ten days of this month. A new
set of men, of whom Mackey the mur
dered man was one, started the mine
and were deriounced,as "black sheep"
by the members of this Union. This
difficulty no doubt led to the murder
of poor Mackey. But as the whole
matter will undergo a thorough legal
investigation we forbear to say any
thing more at present.
On Tuesday night of last week Mrs.
Caroline E. Spaulding, wife of Wm.
Spaulding, formerly of this place, but,
lately of Bridgeport, Huntingdon coun
ty, committed suicide , by banging her
self with a clothes line to the grape
arbor in H. M. Pratt's yard 'in this
place. She 'was found hanging and
dead by Mr. Pratt about 10 o'clock.
Coroner Miller was apprised of the
fact, and held an inquest, the jury ren
dering a verdict of death from suicide.
SpaUlding was 87 years of age,
and had been married a number of
years, but left no children. For five
years past her health had been very
poor, and she became subject to fre
quent fits of melancholy. These seem
ed to be aggravated by the religions
revivals or excitements of 'last winter,
since which time she has repeatedly
expressed the wish that she were dead.
In consequence apprehensions had
been entertained for some time by her
friends that she might some day at
tempt to destroy herself, and her
movements were therefore generally
watched. Her maiden name was Tay
lor, and she was originally from Corn
wall, Conn. She was a cousin of Mr.
Pratt, and was on a visit to his family
at the time of this sad occurrence. Her
remains were interred iu the Presby
terian cemetery.— Lewistown Democrat.
far On Wednesday last, a party
hunting berries .on the Cross Moun
tain, South of the Little Cove, found
the remains of a child, which upon ex
amination proved to be those of the
little daughter of James Strealy who
was lost in the Cove Mountain about
three months ago. It seems that after
becoming separated from her compan
ions, the little creature wandered off
four or five miles among the moun
tains, and then t erished from hunger.
At the spot where she was found, a
quantity of moss had been collected
which she had arranged in the form of
a playhouse, against or under a lodge
of rocks. The remains of the child
were identified by means of the hair•
and vestiges of clothing which were
strewn around. The remains were
brought back to the home of her par
ents, where they were interred, the
community manifesting deep sorrow
a❑d sympathy with the afflicted par•
ents. The spot where they were found
is not more than two miles from the
residence of Solomon Heiser, Esq.,
who is well known to the people of
this town.—Franklin Repository. -

The Newspaper Cask System.
The Wisconsin
‘ editors have been
holding a convention at which the prop,
osition was broached for establishing a
general newspaper systein out there of
cash payments. • Why not every
where? It is the only proper way.
Most-of our country newspapers live
half-starved on the credit system when
they might get fat and Saucy on the
cash system. Our war correspondence
for instance, during the fate rebellion,
cost over half a million in cash. We
could afford it with our cash system;
but whore would we have been under
the old stupid Credit system ? No
where. Of all things in the world
newspapers call for the cash system,
and it is always best for buyer and
seller. "Mr. Speaker," once said Sohn
Randolph, "I have found the philoso
pher's stone. It is pay at you go, sir,
and be paid as you go."—N. Y. Herald.
Exactly so. But not only printers,
but every class of society would be
benefitted by a strictly:cash system.
There is nothing to prevent it, hut a
fear of losing, which is only imaginary.
People must' live, and. just so long as
money circulates, somebody must get
it--:•then why not pay as you go. •It is
much easier to do this•than to wait
and let the sum accumulate to fright
ful proportions, when the possibility of
paying that:thou c:weSt is infinitely
more uncertain and distasteful: We
are pained to heai of the complaints of

world, who, like the miser, scrape up

Chicken Choleen

lowa Department of Agriculture, says:
My chickens have been dying of
cholera for the last two years—even
turkeys have died of the same disease.
When the hens begin to droop and look

spoonfuls of strong alum water, and

Another gentleman, writing to the
same department says :
Take two eggs, one tablespoonful' of
finely pulverized alum, and a sufficient
quantity of flour to make a thin paste,

there are two chances to one that it
will recover. I have also used alum,

Mxssas Entrons :—Apropoe- 'of the
subject upon which I am writing, I
see in a western paper an account of a
speech delivered by Hon. John-Sher
man, at Canton, Ohio, on the 14th inst.
In :his remarks, ho referred to the
prosperity of that town, which a few
years ago had the reputation of being
a sleepy-going town. It, like Hunt
ingdon, Was not improving, and there
was but little • employment, except
that given in a few stores and shops,
while there was the ward number of
nomproducers, lawyers, doctors and
preachers. Now, the population of
Canton is doubled, and property val
ues trebled. Every industrious man
who wishes employment can have it.
Its workshops now produce annually
more than .a million dollars worth
of machinery, ;the raw material for
which is found mainly in neighboring
soil. Mr. Sherman asks: "What is
the cause of this change? - Ibis in the
diversity of employment, and the di
version of labor. No nation can be
great without this. We must develop°
agriculture, mechanics and commerce.
When liberty and property are secure
then the great object of civil law is to
develop 'industry. The diversity of
its industry is, the gauge of its pros
perity. The mechanic and the farmer
should each produce what the other
wants, and the exchange of these pro
ducts should take place near to each
other. Then the surplus, products of
both goes off 'into the 'market in its
more valutible form. You may at
tribute your prosperity to the fact that
your county is underlaid with coal and
iron. This is indeed of' greater value
than your surface soil. But it is of
equal value to your neighbors, for the
cost of transportation has been so
greatly cheapened by railroads that
your coal and iron is as valuable to
other places as to you."
We have repeatedly commended the
energy in western towns, but as it is
in Canton, so it can be in Huntingdon.
No town will prosper so long as it
does not seek to improve ite own re
sources, and draw from its own ma
terial in the manufacture of its' own
implements. As Mr. Sherman says of
a town : " Tho diversity of its in
dustry is .the gauge of its prosperity,"
and that sentiment should be the
motto of the people of , every town.
One branch of industry alone- should
not, be cultivated, as that would cause
such competition that there would be
a ruin in prices;
but in diversity there
would be mutuality, and each branch
would Assist the other in,. developing
the grhateit'proportion'of our resour-•
ces. In how short a time would
Huntingdon rival the most enterpri
sing of towns if the works of art Were
only more extensively introduced and
diversified in our midst; but it cannot•
bo done unless steps are taken to pro
mote such a desirable result, and a
full and hearty co-operation is exten
ded by every cien. . .

Tribute of Respect.
At a' triceiing'of . Mount Hope Ledge No,
209,1.0. of G. T., at - Petersbkg,July'net,
1869, the following resolutions were adopted:
How oft we ale called to realize the sol
emn truth that we are mortal—that iin the
midst of life we are upon the verge of the
grave, and that our time upon earth is but as
a moment when compared with the vast eter
nity before us. The grim monster Death has
taken from our midst one of the leading spir
its of our beloved Order; he who of all others
showed both by precept and example that-he
was in earnest in the Temperance work, In
his Christian life he has left us an example
worthy of imitation. He has left us; but we
mourn not as those without hope. He died
as he lived, in the enjoyment of a good' hope
of immortal bliss. ft was our privilege to
visit our brother during his lust illness, when
he told us that his work was done, and that
he was, resigned to the will of his Heavenly
Father. To-night he sleeps his last sleep.—
We miss him from our councils. No more
shall his stately form - be seen among us ; no
more his wise counsel guide`us ; no more his
kindly greeting meet us; but our less isihis
gain, and we feel that we canlatiy; "Thy will
be done."
In view of, the above, your, committee
would offer the following:

STEvENs, this Lodge has lost One - of

Resolved, That to the mother and relatives
of the deceased, we tender our warmest sym
pathies, feeling that their loss is irreparable,
yet rejoicing to know-that he has gone to a

"Sitikness, sorrow, pain and death
Are felt and feared no more."

memory of our departed broTher, the charter
of the Lodge be draped in mourning fur thir

At Huntingdon, on Friday evening,
13th August, inst., MR, SAMUEL
ENT, highly respectable citizen of
this place, in the 81st year of his age.
The deceased was born in Philadelphia,
and spent hie early days in that city and on
the seas. He removed with hie family to
Huntingdon about the year 1845, where he
has since continued to reside. The desth of
a kind and affectionate wife, his companion
for nearly forty years, a little over one year
ago, was a shock from which he never re
covered. Mr. C., many years ago became a
member of the Protestant Episcopal Church,
while yet in Philadelphia; and ever since his
removal to this place, has been a consistent
member of St. John's Protestant Episcopal
Parish, and an efficient member of its vestry.
The funeral took place on Sunday the 15th
Aug., inst., at 4 o'clock, from his , lab resi
dence in the following order: After the
reading of the beautiful funeral servicevip
pointed by the Church, his remains were
escorted to the cemetery , by the members of
the Mount Moriah- Lodge of Free Masons,
and a large concourse of friends and neigh
At the grave the ceremonies were conduct
ed wholly by the brethren of the masonic
order. By many present the funeral rites
and ceremonies of this ancient and honorable
order were seen and heard for the first time.
They are certainly grand, beautiful and hn
pressive beyond 'conception, and in paying
the last tribute of respect to the memory of
their departed brotheroley did 'not felt to'
present them in their moat attractive form.
When the young and middle aged die, a
feeling of sadness net easily suppressed will
overshadow us. We weep, because•-to us
who see through a glees darkly, the time of
-their departure seems too soon. how unlike
this is it when the good old man, full of years,
after having'snecessively passed
,through the
spring;Mimther and autumn' 'of' life, and at
tained te 7 almost partriarebal age, is called
hence to receive his reWard.',!Like fruit fully
ripe, lie drops into the earth and is hid from
our view, only to reappear-in' a• form more
majestic and beautiful among the first fruits
of heaven's immortal ,spring . - :surely there
is no cause of sadness in such a death, hilt
much of joy. •,• , : - F. B.
