THE GILOIVTII or lILTNTINGDON.—The
growth of our borough during recent years,
the prospects of its continued improvement
and expansion, and the means by which its ex
tent and importance may be increased, are to
: pies of frequent discussion among our citizens
and in which all of our people seem to be in
terested. We; believe that subjects, to which
so much importance is attached, are well
worthy of some attention in these columns,
and that we cannot give place to anything
more valuable, in a local point of view, than a
retrospect of our late progress, and some sug
gestions as to the manner in which our advan
tages and resources may be most rapidly de
veloped and improved and the greatest general
It requires no effort of memory to recollect
the time when Huntingdon was in size a mere
village, surpassed in spirit and enterprise by
many neighboring country villages; when
like a wagon with the lock applied to its
wheels, it seemed as difficult to move back.
ward as forward ; when Standing Still was a
more appropriate name than "Standing Stone."
Those of our oldest citizens, who were born
about the time the first foundation was laid
here, might have believed that they had lived
to see Huntingdon a finished toil'', but this
delusion cannot longer exist. It has been
driven from intelligent minds by the light of
The spirit of improvement commenced to
revive about the close of the war. At that
time "the town" lay east of Charles street, and
although the borough limits extended more
than a mile further west, those who had ven
tured to build beyond that street were looked
upon as irretrievably lost in the country. That
part was regarded as too distant for the resi
dence of any but the few whose business call
ed them in that direction and those who had
no business anywhere.
It is not strange, therefore, that the men
who then had capital to invest in fine houses
preferred to build in the old town. The cheap -.
ness at which lots could be obtained in West
Huntingdon was the inducement Oat first led
people to buy there. Many purchasers, whose
object was to secure homes within their means,
scarcelyimagined, that at this early day, their
property, not including improvements, would
be worth from two hundred to four hundred
per cent. more than it cost them. So rapid
was its increase in value that men of wealth,
taste and foresight became anxious to be own
ers there and were willing to pay six hundred,
eight hundred and even a thousand dollars,for
lots that sold five years ago, for two hundred
dollars each. The result of this is that West
Huntingdon is to-day, as far as it has progress
ed, more beautiful and attractive in appearance
than Old Huntingdon. The buildings on
Washington street, from Fulton to Locust, in
the former, a distance of five squares, are, as
a class, superior to those on Hill street, from
St. Clair to Charles, in the latter, also a dis
tance of five squres.
But if West Huntingdon had never been
built, and no other improvements had been
made-than those in the Old Town, our people
would have just reason for pride. Onr finest
structures have been the work of a few years
past, while in the northern part of the
borough and in Oneida township, which is in
fact but a suburb of Huntingdon, the comfor
table dwellings that have been built, or are In
process of erection, are scarcely less numer
ous than in West Huntingdon.
That we have commenced another year
that will be more remarkable than any preced
ing one, for the growth and progress of Hunt
ingdon, is the opinion of the intelligent por
tion of our community. Capitalists are turn
ing their attention to this place for opportuni
ties of investment, and prices are offered for
lands in this vicinity,which by the short-sight
ed, are considered extravagant. But we may
safely conclude that those,who have the money
to dispose of, are wiser than the ones who can
not see how it is to be profitably invested here.
The relative facilities offered by different
points in this State for the establishment of
manufactures are at the present time being
carefully inquired into and compared. Be
tween several towns a warm rivalry has
sprung up as to which possesses the greatest
advantages in this respect. Harrisburg and
Lebanon are discussing their comparative
merits and competing for the location of con
templated works. The argument of one is
that it is situated in the midst of a vast iron
ore region and that iron manufactures can be
more successfully and cheaply carried on there
than in the neighboring town. The other in
sists that the railroad systems, of which it is
the centre, afford conveniences for the trans
portation of coal, lumber and iron, which the
first is deficient in. Thus disinterested parties
dare convinced that neither offers all the in
dacenteuts necessary to make it the seat of ex
tensive manufactures. Where can we find a
combination of the advantages claimed by both
these towns? Certainly ta Huntingdon. Our ore
fields cover the whole county. In the west
ern, southern and southeastern parts they are
inexhaustible. They extend from the Juniata
river, opposite Huntingdon, to the Maryland
line. We have also coal in abundance. After
we finish the under-mining of Broad Top, though
our prophets have not told us when that will
be, the Clearfield, Centre and Allegheny re
gions will still be open to us. Our railroad
facilities are as good as could be desired,
and are soon to be added to by the com
pletion of the road from Mt. Dallas to Bridge
port, and, we hope, by the making of the Lewis
burg, Centre and Spruce Creek and the Buffalo
and Washington roads, the latter traversing
the country from the Fulton county line to
Mount Union. The proposed enlargement of
the Pennsylvania canal is also a project the
value of which we will not attempt to predict.
We arc unsurpassed in everything but en
terprise. And as we lack originality, we
might well follow the example Oct us by the
town of Columbia. There the citizens, by
public meetings, the appointment of com
mittes, the wide p"uidication and circulation
of their proceedings, and other means, are at
tracting the attention of manufactures to that
place. Owners of available sites for machine
shops, furnaces, mills, and other works are
offering to contribute lauds and to sell more
at fair prices, and the probability is that Colum
bia, with not half the advantages, will soon
be far ahead of Huntingdon.
The difficult question to determine and the
one which is most likely to divide the moneyed
men, is in what particular place in or about
the borough should manufacturing establish.
meats be located. We have conflicting per
sonal interests and men who are selfish enough
to think that whatever is for their individual
benefit should be adopted. Such persons are
more injurious than useful. They must take
back seats in the advance our borough is des
tined to make. Our factories, furnaces and
rolling-mills must be erected at the points
which offer the best facilities and which will
insure the greatest return for the money to be
invested. If West Huntingdon is such a place,
let it be selected. If water power, that un
tiring worker,taking neither food nor fuel, is
required, it can be found in extent beyond all
necessity, between the canal and river, below
Burchinell's planing mill. If superior advan
tages are offered on the other side of the Ju
niata, lot that be the place for improvements.
Each must so far ignore what seems to 'be
best for himself as to co-operate harmonously
iu measures intended for the general good.
Until this is done the locks so long applied to
the wheels will not be removed.

ri IILA'I: DISCOVERY OF IIESLiTITE ORE
AT ORBISONIA.—The article which appeared in
the JOURNAL of the 18th ult., has drawn out
the following letter from one of the• beat in
formed citizens of the lowei. cud Of the* pun-
ty upon the subject of the late Oro discover
ies in the neighborhood of Orbisonia. We
present it to our readers with pleasure, and
hope others will take similar interest in dem
onstrating the resources of their respective
I like the spirit of enterprise you show in
your paper in encouraging the manufacturing
interests of the community, and particularly
the iron interest. I read with pleasure, an
article in your paper on the 18th ult., speak
ing of the town of Huntingdon as a good place
for manufacturing purposes. This is my idea
exactly, and I have told the people of Hun
tingdon so, frequently.
"You speak of the ores in Woodcock Valley
and in Tussey's Mountain, and mention some.
thirg of the ores near Orbisonia. I will give
you a description of this part of the county
and of the deposits of ore that have come
under my notice. The same kind of ore is to
be found here that is in Woodcock Valley.
There is a vein of 36 inches running through
the Black Log Mountain, some 600 feet above
the water level, whirls we have worked. This
vein is on our lands for eight miles. The
Black Log Mountain runs parallel with Tus
sey's Mountain. This ore makes iron of a
cold short character. There is fully as much
of it here as there is in Woodcock Valley.
"But the mineral wealth of this end of the
county lies principally in the deposites of
Hemotite Ore which is in great abandance.
The discovery of this ore-has been made with
in the last three years. We have found it on,
I may say, hundreds of "acres within the last
month. I have come on a vein of it seven
feet in thickness, and we have tested it for
some 400 feet in depth. This ore is the most
valuable of any in the State—it makes a very
strong iron and is very much sought , after for
the purpose of mixing with other ores that are
not so strong.
" Huntingdon county has an abundance of
ore and coal and is no doubt destined to be a
great iron county at some future day; all
that is required, isZthat the people become in
terested for the good of the county and for
future generations. There is a large quantity
of coal land on the east side of Broad Top,
and the coal can only be taken out on that
side. It looks as though a railroad would be
built from East Broad Top to the Pennsylva
nia Central and run through this Valley.
Should this be the case it will be a great
thing for this county; and Tor your town. In
order to make good iron, different kinds of ore
ought to be used, and all the ores which are
necessary, as well as coal and lime stone,
are within easy distances of Huntingdon. Our
ores contain from 4o to 54 per cent. of pure
" It seems to me that if the people of Hun
tingdon county do not wish to invest in
the manufacturing business themselves, they
should take some action by which their re
sources can be made known to those who
would do something towards developing
them. There is certainly no better locality in
the State for the manufacturing of iron than
the town of ,Huntingdon."
ATTEMPTED MURDER.-On Friday
morning the tranquility of our city was dis
turbed by the report that an assault, with in
tent to kill,had been made upon Andrew Feay,
an employee in the New Car Shops of the P.
R. R. Co., in the First Ward, by a man named
Hamilton Starr, employed in the machine shop.
Shortly after the employees of the shops had
assembled for the purpose of commencing their
daily avocations, Hamilton Stars entered the
Car shop and inquired for Andrew Fcay. The
latter was working under a car in close prox
imity, and was pointed out to him. Advanc
ing towards Petty, Starr deliberately took aim
at him and fired, whereupon the assailed, see
ing the danger to which his life was, exposed,
turned and fled, rapidly followed by his assail
ant, who was all the while firing, the employees
joining in• the chase and endeavoring to get
pos-ession of the revolver, now in the hands
of a man whose heart.seemed to be on fire, and
whose demoniacal expression caused not a few,
who witnessed the tragedy, to craze with fear
and excitement. In an adjoining shop,a ball from
the revoker had the effect of bringing Feay
to the ground, whereupon his assailant rushed
upon bins in his helpless condition, and fired
several shots before the spectators of the aw
ful scene could succeed in extricating Feay
from his perilous situation.
Feay was immediately conveyed to his resi
dence, on Eleveth avenue, and Dr. Fay sum
moned. Upon examination of the wounds it
was discovered that five of the shots fired had
taken effect. Two entering the back of the neck
and passing out at the Mouth, two entering the
shoulder, and the other entering the arm.
The Doctor was of the opinionthat the wounds
would not prove fatal, and we since learn,
that nnder the care of his skillful physician,
Feay has so famaecovered as to be able to
walk in his room.
After committing the deed, Starr surren
dered himself to Mr. Levi Geesey, and was
taken before Alderman McCormick, for a hear
ing. lie was subsequently placed in the lock
up until a commitment was made out, When
lie was given in charge of two-police officers
who had him heavily ironed and conveyed to
prison, at liolliday-sburg, to await the result
of Feay's wounds.—Altoona Tribune.
THE PENNSYLVANIA HOUSE IN PAT
TERSON, BURNED TO TIIE GROUND.—
Another disastrous fire occurred in our phice
on Monday of this week. A little before 11
o'clock, a. m., of that day the roof of
Mackey's Pennsylvania House, near the rail
road, was discovered to be on fire. The
alarm was at once given, and the citzens of
both towns flocked to the place. It was soon
apparent that the Hotel property could not
be saved, and the efforts of those present were
directed to saving the personal property and
and the adjoining buildings. The engine re
paired by our authorities since the late fire
done effective work. It was a calm day, the
snow was falling fast, water- in abundance
was convenient—which added to the constant,
indefatigable labors of hundreds of men and
woMen, - prevented the fire from spreading.
The losses sustained, as far t.s we received
them, arc as follows :
F. M. Mackey, hotel,- valued -at $6,000, in
sured for $3,400 in the Lyeomiug, company.
Win. Young, occupant, personal property,
loss $O,OOO no insurance.
J. Fennel, store goods, loss $2,500, fully in
Mrs. Mickey, personal property, loss $6OO,
Wm. Wright, loss to building and personal
property $l,OOO, insured in Lebanon com
Besides these, the personal property was
removed from the following dwellings, and
were more or less injured: F. Roam, Mr.
Loudenslager, D. A. Doughman, Mrs. Ilan-
The Lewistown fire company was sent for,
but owing to the engine breaking down did
not arrive in time.
The fire was undoubtedly accidental, and no
blame is attached to any one.—Juniata Rep.
of last ?reek.
A PRETTY ORNAMENT:—A pretty or
ment may be obtained by suspending an acorn
by a piece of thread tied around it, within
half an inch of the surface of some water con
tained in a vase, tumbler, or saucer, and allow
ing it to remain undisturbed for several weeks-
It will soon burst open, and small roots will
seek the water ; a straight and tapering stem,
with beautiful glossy.green- leaves, will shoot
upward and present a very pleasant appear
ance. Chestnut trees may be grown this man
ner but their leaves are not so beautiful as
those of the oak. The water should be chang
ed once a month, taking care to suply water
of the same warmth ; bits of charcoal added
to it will prevent the water from souring. If
the leaves turn yellow, put a grain of nitrate
of amnia in the vessel which holds the water,
and it will renew their luxurlante.

the intelligent families of Pennsylvania. It will
be devoted to Independent Journalism, will defend
and advocate the rights and interests of the people
and will assist every effort to advauce the religious
educational, moral and social condition of humani

be, us it now is, more than any other political or
ganization, the enactor and defender of liberal and
impartial laws, the protector of American Labor,
the promoter of American Manufactures, and the '
leader in all great reforms, the Journal will advo

State, and the rights of the laboring men employed
therein, shall always find favor in these columns.

and religion. It is a good agricultural paper, a
good educational paper, a good temperance paper,
a good religious paper, a good family newspaper.
The Journal is published by the "Harrisburg
