TIIE MONARdII OF ADVERTISERS.—
What an enterprising Doctor made by a judicious
use of Printer's Ink-Z.llelmbold's princely turn
out.—llelmbold's big sleigh was out in the
Park yesterday with a load of Judges and
Generals. A Sun man, meeting the Doctor
asked him how much the bells cost.
"They're gold plated. There are 378 of
them. They cost me $970," answered the
little giant of the medical world.
On further inquiry the reporter learned that
the harness cost nearly $4,000, and the buffalo
robes $1,850. Thinking that a man with such
a turnout ought to be worth something, the
reporter came down town and hunted up the
Doctor's assets. Ile found them to be as fol
Five story Lrown stone store 594 Broadway, $2OO 000
Stock in store, 100 000
Furniture in private residence,
Horses, carriages, sleighs, harness, and the finest
turnout ill the world, 30 000
Stores at Long Branch, 60 000
Hotels at Long Branch, 35 000
Cottages at Long Branch, 25 000
Furnitute in cottages, 10 000
Land in Long Branch, 120 000
Stocklin the Philadelphia labratory, 150 000
The reporter learned that the Doctor owns,
in addition to the above, several lots on Mad
ison and Fifth Avenues, and some on the
Boulevards. The reporter was assured that
there was not a pencil mark against all this
property. The Doctor's business is immense.
The orders have reached $30,000 and $40,000
in a single day. Seven years ago he came to
this city with $30,000 in his pocket. Now he
is worth his millions, and spends as much
money as any man in the city.
"How did he make his money?" asked the
reporter of the Doctor's agent.
"Through t.dvertising liberally in the news
papers," was the reply, "same as Bonner,
Smith & Street, Ayer, and Jayne."
The Doctor is advertising in 3,150 newspa
pers. He buys is own merchandise, and con
tracts for his advertising in such a manner
that he is prepared to discount at seven per
cent. per annum any obligation that may be
presented. The Doctor is emphatically a self
He has a special fondness for yachts, and is
spending large sums of money in procuring
models of the Dauntless. He proposes to
decorate his drug store with these models.
TN MEMORTAM.—Pursuant to adjourn
ment, the Court met on Tuesday, February 7,
1871, at 9 o'clock in the morning, Hon. D.
Clarkson presiding. Immediately after the
Court was called Samuel T. Brown, Esq., an
nounced the death of J. SEWELL STEWART, Esq.
and moved that the Court adjourn out 4
respect to his memory. Judge Clarkson then
adjourned the Court until Thursday, the 9th
inst. Immediately after adjournment a meet
ing of the Court and liar was organized by
calling Hon. D. Clarkson to the Chair and ap
pointing J. S. Blair, Esq., Secretary.
David Blair, William Dorris and Samuel T.
Brown, Esqs., then made addresses in which
they very feelingly bore witness to the high
character for integrity, the kind heart, and
the social and gentlemanly qualities of the
deceased, after which William Dorris, Samuel
T. Brown and M. B. Massey, Esqs., were ap
pointed a committee to draft the customary
resolutions. The report of this committee, as
adopted by the meeting, is as follows :
At a meeting of the members of the Bar, on
the recent death of one of its members, reso
lutions were drawn up by our brother J. SEW
ELL STEWART, and after their adoption be ex
pressed a desire that when he died the same
resolutions should be passed. The committee
appointed for that purpose have therefore
adopted, with such alterations as are neces
sary, those resolutions and preamble as fol

by a rigorous and impartial enforcement of
His laws, to sever the cord that bound our
late brother, J. Sewell Stewart, to things
earthly and to translate his spirit to that pu
rer and happier sphere where sorrows never

Resolved, That while deploring the untimely
death of this generous, kind and truthful man,
we tender to her, who was his faithful and
loving wife, and to his children, our condo
lence in their great bereavement.
Resolved, That as members of the Bar wo
will attend his funeral in a body.
Resolved, That a copy of the proceedings of
this meeting be presented to the family of the
deceased; and that copies be furnished to the
town papers for publication.

SKETCHES.—Dear Editor : If you will
devote me the space, I propose to write a sketch
of the different townships of our county, be
lieving or hoping they will prove interesting
to the readers of the JOURNAL, or at least to
those of the respective districts. And to be
gin I will take
It evidently takes its name from our "Blue
Juniata" river. It is one of the smallest town
ships, though not the least in area, containing
about twelve square miles. It is bounded on
the North by Walker and the Juniata river;
on the East by the Juniata river and Terrace
Mountain, the latter separating it from Union
township ; on the South by Terrace Mountain
and Penn township, and on the West by Penn
and Walker townships.
The territory is somewhat mountainous and
some of the laud not very productive. In its
Valleys and along Raystown Branch of the
Juniata, which meanders from South to North
are to be found some of the most clever people
of the county.
The Assistant Marshal of the district, for
taking the last census, reports her as having
a population of three hundred and ninety-five
Juniata is not by any means an old town
ship—having only been organized in 1857.
By the assessment of 1870 she has 82 taxa
ble inhabitants, and for the same year is as
sessed with $248.22 for county tax ; $18,03
for State and $14,00 for militia purposes. I
cannot give the amount of tax for her school
purposes. I wish that her educational system
ranked higher than it does. Five schools with
the average number of months taught, but
four. Not one female teacher, and the average
salary of the gentlemen who taught but $25,-
65. Seventy-eight males and forty-four fe
male pupils, making an average of nearly
twenty-four scholars per school. Quite a suf
ficient number of scholars, but to prosper with
our age, I must say to the directors, you must
pay better wages and have longer terms if you
want good schools. Politically she is all right.
The last Presidential vote stood 58 for Grant
and 21 for Seymour.
Hotels there are none, but the lager beer or
ale establishment, on the opposite side of the
river from Huntingdon, is well known to citi
zens as a place where "suckers" are want to
go—on Sunday. More anon.
COMPULSORY EDUCATION.—Mr. Editor:
As our Democratic friends are painfully exer
cised in regard to the question of compulsory
education, we commend to them the following
extract from "Lectures on Law" by James Wil
son, L. L. D., late one of the Associate Justices
of the Supreme Court U. S. Vol. 2, page 235,
"In the reign of Charles the Second, the
lords of the -ommittee on plantations trans
mitted to Virginia a series of inquiries con
cerning the condition of the Colony. Among
the angwerg roturned by Sir William Berkeley,
who was then its Governor, we find the follow
ing one, too extraordinary to be passed with
out particular notice : '1 thank God, there are
no free schools, nor printing ; and I hope we
shall not have, these hundred years. For
learning has brought disobedience, and heresy,
and sects into the world; and printing has di
vulged them and libels against the best gov
ernment God keep us from both By the
Court of Charles this prayer was received most
graciously; and, agreeably to its principle, a
succeeding Governor was ordered 'to allow no
person to use a printing press on any occasion

WE kart, from the Piiiebxirgh Commer
cial, that President Hughart, on a tour to the
Ohio Pile Falls, reports that the building of
the road in that vicinity has been greatly re
tarded by slips, which for the past month have
occurred very often, but that the greatest ob
stacles have been removed and that track lay
ing will now proceed at the rate of from a mile
to a mile and a half per day. On Monday last
trains passed over the bridge of Bear Run,
which is 150 feet long and 52 feet from the
water and is 21 miles east of Connellsville•
The Brook Tunnel, which is GOO feet in lengths
will not be completed for some time yet, bu
a temporary track has been laid around and
across the mountain, so that there will be no
delay whatever on that account. The track
encounters a grade of 185 feet to the mile.
Shoo Fly Pinkerton and Sand Patch Tunnels
are all completed and ready for the track. On
the eastern division the track has been laid a
considerable distance west of Southampton.
The contractors are proceeding with the track
at the rate of 2,500 to 3000 feet a day. Mr.
Hughart is confident that at present rates of
laying track the road will be ready for the
t ransportation of freight by the 15th of Febru
ary. The formal opening and grand excur
sion in honor of the road will, it is stated, not
take place until sometime in March or later, as
the company desires to have the road in first
class order before running regular passenger
trains by schedules.
A "CITIZEN" writes under date of En
nisville, February 12th, as follows :
"We are gratified with the appearance of
our new HUNTINGDON JOURNAL. It opens out
bright and clean, neat and new from its clear
caption to its final column. Its contents af
ford us a very wholesome pabulam ; we enjoy
the stimulus and welcome every issue. The
citizens of Jackson township never revel in
dailies. the weeklies are therefore the more
appreciated. We seldom write for newspa
pers, being but slightly acquainted with Edi
tors and unable to surmount a delicacy of
feeling which intrudes when we attempt to
write for immortality. But if you will come
and see us we will fill a tripple sheet for you.
Our resources are inexhaustible. We have
ties for a railroad, stone for a turnpike, sensa
tion enough for a bulletin board, and news
enough for a telegraph."
[We would be much gratified to pay such
a highly favored community a visit, if we
could only find time to do so, but we will be
happy to see "citizen" when he comes to town
and to take him by the hand and make his
personal acquaintance.—ED. JOURNAL.]

that I ever read, or at least the first I ever sub

I now take, in addition to the JOURNAL, the Zanes

I am able and very willing to pay for them

me that I have made some good selections.

from there, therefore, the JOURNAL is a very
REMOVAL.—"The Union Bank of Hun
tingdon" has been removed to the new room,
in Cunningham's building, finished: special
ly for its business. The vault is a master
piece of workmanship, being built in such a
manner as to defy the assaults of burglars or
the fury of the flames. It is constructed of
large square stones, cemented and fastened
together by iron "dogs," and the safe inside
of it is one of the best manufactured, while
everything about the room bears evidence of
security. The counter is EL beautiful one, and
reflects credit on the manufacturers, Burch

SOMERSET must be an awful place to
get married in. We picked up the Herald the
other day and waded through a column to
find that our friend J. C. Wright, of Bedford,
had done right once in his life, and had gone
and taken unto himself a wife ; but the way
they go on about it in Somerset is enough to
scare a man out of his wits during all the bal
ance of his natural life. Is it a new thing to
get married up there ? We will wager our old
hat that there will not be a wedding there for
the next ten years. No doubt John considered
it Wright good Pteking.
THE RAILROAD.—Work on the Bed
ford & Bridgeport Railrord is being rapidly
pushed. We learn that on the Bridgeport end
about eight miles of the grading has already
been completed. Between this place and
Bedford the contractors are hurrying matters
with commendable zeal. The work on both
ends begins to show for itself, and it is really
cheering to witness the progress that is being
made. By the first of August, at the farthest,
it is expected that the "iron horse" will be heard
to scream for the first time in Bedford. Glory

A DISTRESSING ACCIDENT.—David S.
Black, jr., an employee in Burchinell k Son's
Planing Mill, in this place, on last Wednes
day morning, while working at a machine call
ed the "sticker," endeavored to change it
while in motion, and the wrench slipped and
carried his hand beneath the chisel, which cut
away the thumb and index finger of the left
hand and otherwise terribly mutilated it. Drs.
Brumbaugh and Miller were called in and
dressed it. At the last accounts the young
man was suffering very much with the wound.

Mr. Stewart was born in West township, in this
county. on the Ist day of March, 1819. He gradu
ated, with distinction, at Meadville College in the
fall of 1840, when he came to Huntingdon and
commenced reading law with James Steel, Esq.
He was admitted to the bar in April, 1843, and
from that time he has been actively engaged in the
duties of his profession until 1865, when he was ap
pointed Assessor of U. S. Revenue, for the XVIIth
District. From 1848 to 1856, he was District At
torney. In 1851 and 1352, he was Editor and Pro
prietor of the Hu BriNonox JOUICNAL.
As a member of the bar he established a reputa
tion for scrupulous honesty and fidelity in watch
ing the interests of his clients. Having strong
self-control, he was rarely thrown off his guard in
the trial of causes, and in his demeanor towards
the Court, witnesses and opposing counsel, was al
ways respectful and gentlemanly. In this particu
lar his example is well worthy of emulation.
Mr. Stewart was a student by nature, and in ad
dition to a well stored legal mind, he had traversed
the fields of literature and science so successfully,
that his opinion was generally sought after by our
citizens on all questions of a scientific nature. He
gave much time to literary pursuits, and some of
his writings, especially his poems, have had a wide
With the kindliest feelings towards mankind he
was an earnest advocate of every scheme calculated
to elevate and advance the interests of his fellow
creatures of every race, and tongue, and color, and
the principle of his life appeared to be to confer the
greatest good upon the greatest number.
Kind, genial, sprightly, and original in conver
sation; overflowing with wit and humor, he was
the life of every circle. Ills society was always
sought after, and he was universally honored and
beloved. "With malice toward none, he had char
ity to all," and we do not believe he loft a■ enemy
The news of SEWELL'S death flashed over our
community bringing sorrow to many hearts. No
common man has fallen in our midst! How sud
denly has he laid clown the daily, pressing cares
and burdens of life, and leaving home, wife, chil
dren, friends, gone to his rest! How emphatically
does Providence, in this dispensation, speak to as,
"lie ye also ready."

THE STATE JOURNAL.
THE WEEKLY STATE JOURNAL
Was established at Harrisburg to supply a want
long felt in all parts of the State. No effort will be
spared to make it an acceptable weekly visitor to
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 advance the religious
educational, moral and social condition of humani
ty. So long as the Republican party continues to
be, as 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 promotor of American Manufactures, and the
leader in all great reforms, the Journal will advo
cate its principles and defend its policies.
The mining and manufacturing Interests of the
State, and the rights of the laboring men employed
therein, shall always find favor in these columns.
National and State measures proposed and enacted
for the protection of American industry will ever
be urged, advocated, and defended. The latest
news, political, commercial, agricultural and social
from all parts of the world, will be published
weekly. _ . _
The proceedings of the Legislature throughout
the session will be reported fully and promptly, so
that the readers of the Journal may know what is
transpiring at the State Capital. The Weekly
Journal, like the Daily, is a first-class newspaper,
thoroughly sound in politics, education, temperance
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
Printing Association," a corporation chartered by
the Legislature, and composed of gentlemen of am
ple means, whose sole purpose is to publish a first
class newspaper for Pennsylvania. The best talent
and the ablest writers have been employed to con
duct the affairs, and contribute to the columns of
