HUNTINGDON, PA., TUESDAY, OCTOBER•2S, 1870.
Goldenbair climbed upon grandpapa's knee ;
Dear little Golden hair. tired was site,
All the day busy as busy could be.
Up in the morning as soon as 'twos light,
Out with the birds and butterflies bright,
Skipping about till the coining of night.
Grnndpapa toyed with the curls on her head.
"What has my darling been doing," ho said,
"Since she rose with the sun from her bed ?"
"Pitty much," answered the sweet little ono
"I cannot tell so much things I have done;
Played with my dolly and feeded my bun.
••And then I jumped with my little jump
And I made out of snme water aid soap
Bootiful worlds, momma's castles of hope.
"I afterward readed in my picture-book ;
And Bella and I we went to look
For the smooth little stones by the side of the
"And then I corned home and ented my tea,
And I climbed up on grandma's knee,
And I jes as tired as tired can be."
Lower and lower the little head pressed,
Until it had dropped upon grandpapa's breast
Dear little Goldenhair, sweet be thy rest!
We are but children ; things that we do
Aro as sports of a bobs to the Infinite view,
That marks all our weakness and pities it too.
God grant that when night overshadows our
And we shall be called to account for our day
Ile shall find us as guileless as Goldenhair's
And oh, when aweary, may we be so blest,
And sink like the innocent- child to our rest,
And feel ourselves clasped to the Infinite
For the Globe
Spots on the Sun.
It is not my intention to unneces
sarily alarm the public—far from it.
I am not an agitator, no sir, but sir the
people should be prepared. As the
chances are the sun wont enlighten
them much longer I must; I am a less
er light, but the shine is not all out of
Beloved public, do you know the
danger that threatens you; in all can
dor have you read the papers? do you
ever neglect the sacred duty of' perus
ing the chronicles of the world's pills.
ations ? I fear me you do, some of
you. Astronomers, those doctors of
the winds, tides, comets, moons, who
measure space, currents, lights, shad
ows, and burl stupendous arrays of
figures at the common bends of the
dwellers on the globe, sure that no
man but a monomaniac on the subject
of arithmetic would ever attempt to
question their correctness, and if he
did what would wo care—not much—
only a matter of a million or two of'
miles. There has been your mistake;
you have paid
. more attention to a
delegate election, a ballet girl's limbs,
or the price of- butter—now you must
see your error,
Fellow-humans, aye, all of you deni
zens on this mundane sphere, beware,
prepare sun's full of spots ! You
know how an honest man hates to bo
spotted—now, how does Sol stand it?
The Old Boy's face is caving in ! The
cusses above referred to (astronomers)
say ho has an opening you could drop
the world in without touching the
sides. Bless my soul ! suppose some
of them astronomers should try to drop
us in the hole to prove the correctness
of their measurement. Let the police
look to it; "eternal vigilance is the
price of liberty ;" let, every man be vig
ilant; shoot down the first astronomer
who would drop his motbor earth into
the sun's vacuum. Let rifle clubs or
ganize; tax balloons; take the draw
ing glasses out of the telescopes; grease
the earth's axis that she may run fast
er; get longer poles; petition Grant to
send Anna Dickinson as special envoy
to court the sun—anything to make
him keep his distance until ho recovers
his ancient health. Suppose he douses
his glim, what will we do? has any
preparation been made ? has Congress
put such a. tax on coal oil that wo can•
not export it ?—that should be done
instantly—we must light up our end,
at all hazard we must. Are not the
beacon lights of liberty ours? Is not
the light literature of the world ours?
Are not our Legislative bodies famous
for the light manner they regard their
duties ?—don't they all represent en
lightened constituents? Can we afford
to lose all this? When the eyes of tho
rest of the world are shrouded in gloom
let the American eagle, surrounded by
patent suns, fed by invisible tubes of
coal oil, be seen arising in his full
spread, shrieking: "For coal oil Eagle
,my name; out for a bust, my coves,
out for a bust, my coves, for coal oil
Eagle is my name," etc.
I offer• myself as the American Vic
tor !Ingo, and address the sun as fol
lows: By your memory ofJoshua, be
ware! Do you know us ? Do you
think wo will permit secession ? Look
at Appomattox Court House. Again,
beware ! Withhold your rays, and wo
will raise—. Ali, ha! you tremble!
Would you have us cease our revolu
tions? where then would be your re
flections ? Are we not of a common
paternity ? aro we—do you know? Go
1 7 /1 :•: 7., ,
"tii;F:% l l ,
on in this way putting your comely
visage in mourning and we will export
Coolies to your realm—then what will
become of your intelligent skilled
workman? Ah, ho ! Lilly White is
good fur blotches; is your blood out of
order? try Ilelmbold's, or Hostetter's,
or Schenck's, or any other, titter rem- .
edy—we can spare them (aid the corn:
pounders.) Reflect ! ar-ray yourself
in cheerful garb ; do us a smile. What
will our poets do ?—what substitute
for "rosy dawn," "genial rdys," "glare ,:
of molten lead," for 'beams kissing'
fair nature's band ?" Don't go back
On Nature; she's been true to you, old
man ; you gave her rays, and she's
raised from her plenteous bosom, flies,
mosquitoes, fleas, bugs, corn, oats, se
rials infinitum, quinces, persimmons,
poppers and other luscious fruits.
Would you have alt us children of
earth singing sadly "who will care for
mother now ?" Don't leave us or
phans; will each man's portion be a•
sigh-lam ? What will the Mrs. Grun
dys of the planets say at this base de
sertion ? A thought is mine—accursed
thought—have the winds, those tru
ants, vacillating creatures, carried in to
your realm ally of Greeley's articles
on Farming ? No wonder you frown,
no wonder your cheerful face wears
gloom for raiment; we can't help it;
we have done a little to prevent its cir
culation, and we promise More. All
portions of this home of ours has its
trial or curse—vomito, cholera, war,
missionaries—and wo have Greeley I
Possibly yiin smile; whyfime ? where
fore? Air your laugh chronic?
Oh Sun ! ho Sun ! we beg thee heal
up, close up, fill up, shut up; affright
us not by dread of your loss. Don't
chuck us into your gap; we are not
warriors—would rather die in the last
ditch than a gap. Just light us up
again by a breakfast of stars; we can't
get along without them. If you have
not light enough to go round, give us
the moon's share; she don't do us much
good. We aro not in love—if we were
we would prefer a lamp with adjusti
ble burner. She makes our lunatics
worse, (witness our congressional pro- I
ccedings,) and fills our show-windows
with artistic daubs, for .1 picture's not '
a picture without moonlight Send
Luna off without her share, and save
us from our artists. Astronomers say
she is not inhabited ; they told us of
your failing, and 1 guess they know .
We aro inhabited—yes, badly Adieu!
We would bless you. Fall gently on
our mother's peek. say you forgive us,
say you will smile again, or else, or
else, we will use your waning beams
to batter you into subjection. We
would not resort to harsh measures—
beware! be good or be hanged!
We hope much from this address ;
we think the effect will be good—if not
we will ask Wm. D. Kelley to write an
article on the tariff. We hate cruelty
and would not use so severe a remedy,
but self-preservation actuates us.—
Something must be done and soon
The more I think of this subject the
more agitated I become.
Our currents aro all out of order, so
say the astronomers. I notice the crop
has been poor for some time, and su
gar's very dear; the electric current's
the worse—kit course was formerly N.
S. W. E., but now its E W. S.N. Any
man of intelligence can foretell the re
sult—it must come. It's all wrong; it
pervades everything. What would
poor Christopher Columous do now, in
the present state of the currents? how
would ho navigate? like Toodles ?
The electric needle vacillates and it
points uncertain ; it knows no north,
no south, no east, no west. You can't
get the proper elevation of the atmos
phere; an observation is impossible ex
cept on the part of the crew; then to
take a reckoning is almost useless.—
Our ship-owners are gradually over
coming that difficulty by employing
Yankees—“l reckon" that's a good
plan. I should not be able to write as
intelligently on this subject of naviga
tion had I not bought some canal
shares and joined a boat club.
Every man owes a duty to posterity;
posterity is always looked• to by unap
prcciated intelligence to do them jus
tice—that's me—but my warning voice
was raised, and the future historian
writing by the light of other days, (the
sun having passed away,) will say, I.
was notan idle ALARMIST.
/3^Z" A liitlo ragged urchin, being in
the streets the other day, was asked
by a lady who filled his basket if his
parents were living.
"Only dad, ma'am," said the boy.
"Then you have enough in your bits ,
]:et to feed the family for some time,"
said the lady.
"Oh, no I haven't neither," said the
lad, "for me and dad keep five board

The Old Withered Leaf.
An aged man, much bent with years,
with white hair, and shriveled face,
stood looking into a Sabbath-school
room. There wore multitudes of chil
dren gathered there to attend tho an
niversary, to sing their songs, and then
to join a pie-nie. Who ever know
children to be absent from a pie-nie ?
Soon the .old man turned away, and
the tears were falling fast as he reach
ed a bench under the big elm and sat
down alone. I thought perhaps he
once had a child in that room with the
; t_hildren but now no more; or perhaps
lie was mourning that be had no such
ildvantages when'm child. So I went
to him and said :-
"My friend, Can I comfort you ?
Perhaps if you will tell me the cause
of your tears I may be able to help
you. Have you lost a child ?"
"No, but I have lost something not
loss valuable. I em an old man as you
see. I have never done anything
worth mentioning for the Great Mas
ter, and I must die feeling I have. been
a barren tree in his vineyard."
"Have you never tried to do any
thing for Him ?"
`'Yes, but I was old when I came in
to the vineyard. All I have done is to
teach one class of little boys. I tried
to drop a few seeds into their hearts,
but, alas, what a useless life !"
He was silent, and wept no more,
and I was thinking how to comfort
him, when I heard footsteps behind
me, and turning, saw a min who was
young and old at the same moment!
Ho walked with a measured tread, and
strong wings, and I knew in a moment
it was the Angel of Time. Gently ho
took the old man by the hand and led
him out into the field. In the middle
of the field stood a solitary tree ; it had
one single, withered loaf' hanging alone
on a limb.
"Do you see the withered leaf ?"
'Now listen to it, and mark what it
says.' The old leaf began to quiver
and shake, and with a dry, husky voice
tried to speak alokl:
"Well, hero 1 am, the last of my gen
oration ! low fresh, and green. and
young we once wore as we rustled our
wings in the joy of summer. How the
birds hid and sang in our shade, and
the sunbeams tried in vain to get in
among us. Alas, they aro all gone,
and I am left alone, dry, withered, for
saken and useless! I never did any
good and never shall. To be sure 1
have a little seed wrapped up in my
foldings, which a storm threw in tb my
boson: ; it is a very little seed, and all
I could do was to keep it warm thro'
the winter. But now I must (Bop off
and be lost and forgotten, and the lit
tle seed be lost with mc."
Just then there came a strong wind
through the tree, and the poor old leaf
was wrenched otr and driven over fen
ces and fields, a long distance, till it
fell into a garden. The old man look
ed and followed it more earnestly..
"Now," said the Angel of Time,
"mat k she resell."
The old man watched the leaf as it
slowly unfolded and dropped the little
seed upon the ground; it then spread
itself over the seed to protect it, and
soon it began to decay. In a short
time the leaf had all turned to (lust,
but in the place where it lay there
sprung up a little stem, presently it
grow larger and larger, till it became
a great tree, loaded with the most lus
cious fruit; birds came and built nests
and sang in its branches; a kind lady
came often and plucked the fruit and
carried it to the poor people in the vil
lage; people sent from a distance to
obtain scions from the tree for graft
ing their own ; year after year, for a
century, it stood in the garden, a bless
ing to all.
"llost thou see what has come out
of that little seed ?" said the Angel of
Time to the old man.
"Truly I do, and marvel that such
great good could como from ono little
seed. But why must that old leaf re
calve and hoop that little seed ?"
"Because if it had fallen on the soil
in the shade, under the tree on which
the loaf hung, it could never have
grown. It needed to be brought into,
this very garden, and planted in that
very spot, and it needed the old leaf
to cover and shelter it, to make it live.
Was the old leaf useless ?"
"Oh, no 1"
"Never will the little secd that you
received and dropped into the hearts
of those little boys bo lost. Trees of
righteousness will come from it yet."
The old man wept again. They were
tears of joy now; his heart was glad

We remember a very comical boar
that belonged to Mr. Hammond, and
amused with his tricks, the mirth lov
ing people of Oxford county, Maine,
many years ago. He was captured
when a little cub, and was brought up
by hand as ono of the family. He
claimed the warmest place on the
hearthstone, and nestled in cold wea
ther with the dogs before the fire.—
None of the pet animals about the farm
were tamer than he; and none loved
better to climb up into his master's lap
and receive his caress.
One Sunday the family went to the
church,and left the boar alone nt hoMe.'
Bruin improved the opportunity and
rumaged all over the house in search
of fun or something to eat. Unfortu
nately the good housewife had left the
cellar-door unlocked and ajar, and it
was not long before the bear discover
ed it and crept down the stairs. Once
down the cellar he espied a molasses
barrel, and if there was anything in'
the house he was excessively fond of
it was molasses or honey. Bruin paw
ed over the barrel, licked the tightly
driven bung,,and was about abandon
ing it in despair, when he espied the
spile. Grasping it with his strong
teeth, ho easily withdrew it, and 'out
came the thick molasses in a steady
stream, to the great delight of the
bear, who clapped his mouth to the
hole, and sucked away with grunts of

the bear kept his mouth to the orifice,
pausing now and then to take a long
breath. At length ho was full; his
stomach could hold no more, yet his
appetite was not satisfied. He squat
ted on his haunches and viewed the
still running stream with disgust to
think that the supply was so abund
ant, and that, alas! he could take no
The molasses had now run out in
largo quantity, and had formed a great
pool on the floor : but Bruin dove into
it, and rolled himself a thousand times
in the thick fluid, until his shaggy coat
was covered from his nose to his tail,
with molasses, dirt, and gravel-stones.
There he lay in the sweet pool, tho
picture of self-satisfaction, as eats roll
and tumble in a field of the catnip herb.
All at once Mr. Bear became sick at
the stomach; and it, was a new sensa
tion for him—something he had never
felt before. As he grew worse ho
thought of his master and mistress, so
he crept up stairs to ask far their con
solation; hut they had not returned
from church. • Then ho crawled up an•
other story, and got into the girls' bed
drawing the snowy-white sheets over
his besmeared form. There ho lay

he started on the run for the haymow,

It was some time before the bear got
well, and still longer before his mis
tress forgave him.
An old darkoy in the Fourth dis
trict of Now Orleans, has daily for
months past, selected the door-step of
a prominent residence for his noon-day
nap. , Being driven off one day he
comes the next. With his bead
thrown back and his mouth wide open
ho snores away, to the exceeding dis
comfort of the inmates. Called to the
door by this disagreeable diapason a
few days since, the lady of the house
concluded she would try an experi
ment. For this purpose she procured
a small piece of ice arid dropped it into
the huge orifice that served as Sambo's
mouth—it disappeared like a shot, and
with a cough and a snort, Sambo star
ted to his feet.
"Ugh !" he cried ; as the ice sent vi
olont thrills through his stomach.
"Nat's dis?" and his fingers clutch
ed nervously the afflicted parts.
Just then some ono cried out in the
house that a big rat had run down

key's eyes protruding like saucers; and
the convulsed and anguished face,
showed that real pain was strongly
enhanced by his imaginary terror.
"Oh, golly, how ho do jump and
kick about," and Sambo again gave
himself up to a paroxysm of lamenta
"Drink warm water, Uncle Sam,
and drown him," suggested the lady.
Without any hesitation Sam started
for, the water plug. He turned on the
crank and the water started. Sam
glued his lips to the nozzlo until his

India Rubber Carpets.
Dr. Jones, of Mobile, in the year
1834, in a letter °Prof. Silliman, said:
"Having some lndia-rubber 'varnish
left, which was prepared for
purpose, the thought occurred Co me
of tryino• b it as a covering to a carpet,
after the following manner :—A piece
of canvas was stretched and covered
with a thin:di:oat of glue, [a fine canvas
will probably answer best,] over this
was laid a sheet or two of .common
brown paper, or newspaper; then ano
ther coat of glue was added, 'over
which was laid a pattern of. wall-pa
per with rich figures.• After the body
of the carpet was thusprepared, a very
thin touch of glue was carried _oventhe
face of the paper, to prevent the,lndia
rubber varnish from, tarnishing the
beautiful colors of the paper. After
this was dried, ono or two ceatd,las
may be desired] of India-rubber varn
ish were applied, which, , whenidried,
formed a surface as smooth as,polished
'glass, through which the variegate / 4
colors of the paper appeared_iiiith"tift
dimjnished,, if. not increased y,lustro.—

impenetrable to water or grease , :ef;any
description. When solid; ft.'"may be
washed likwa smooth piece of:marble
or ,w00d.. - .lf silver or, gold leaf forms
the last coat, instead of .papering, and
the varnish is then applied, nothing
can exceed the splendid richness of "the
carpet, which gives the floor the: ap
pearance of being burnished with gold
or silver. A neat carpet on this plan
will cost [when made of gold papering]
about thirty-secien and a half cents
yard. When covered with. gold, or
silver leaf, the cost will be about one
dollar, or one dollar and fifty ceptd
