OLDEN WEDDIN , . PorLr, Esq.,
of Alexandra, county, one of the
oldest and most respeeted citizens, of that
county, and 'cell known here, en the lath of
this month celebrated his .rohieo wedding. As
events of ths kind rar iy happen, and c, we
have never known one to have occurred
this part of the State, we desire to give no
account of it, so far as it may be of public in
terest. Porter was married on the 13th
March, 1821, in Alexandria, to Maria, daughter
of the late Conrad Bucher, Eq., of tile same
place. The 11ev. James Thompson was the
officiating clergyman. Israel Graf Esq.,
of the same place, was on that occasion the
groomsman, and Miss L;tewart, afterwards
niArried to Mr. Thompson, was the brides
maid. Of course the usual assemblage of
friends was present as witnesses and guests,
and it is remarkable that after the lapse of
fifty years a number of the original witnesses
were present to bestow anew their congratu
lations upon the bride and groom on this their
golden wedding. Esquire Craffius, now a
widower, once more took his stand at Mr. t'or
ter's right, and, though bent with the wtight
of years, was ready to support Isis venerable
groom in the trying moment. The same
bridesmaid—now the widowed Mrs. Thompson
—still well preserved, stepped briskly to the
side of Mrs. Porter, as she had done fifty years
before, and the picture of bait a century ago
was traced again, but in graver and more
sombre lines. The young people of that day
were here again, but they were the old men
and women of the party. Charles Porter, Esq.
and his wife were there; Nicholas Cresswell,
Esq., Col. John Cresswell, of Petersburg, and
John Umnmil, Esq., and wife, anti a number
of others Were preacnt, as they had E3CI). long
ago, and thins furnished niditionul evidence of
the r mar;mble character of event.
The ceremonies, if they may be'called such,
were of simply a social and religious chant:-
ter. Mr. Milliken, a son-in-law, produced an
old, time-stained copy of the Huntingdon Ga
aette published in 1821, which had curiously
been prezerved by some antiquarian, and read
therefrom the originally published marriage
notice. The entire company, accompanied by
the piano, then sung the second part of the
Old Psalm, which will be found beautifully
appropriate. Some passages of scripture were
read and suitable remarks made by Rey. T. C.
Porter, son of Mr. Porter, after which was
"Blest be the tie that binds"
and then prayer and the long metre doxology.
Then came the congratulations of the friends.
just as cordial and fervent and happy as of
fifty years ago, except that to these were now
added the salutations and greetings of the
children and grand-children who delighted to
honor their venerable parents on this extraor
dinary occasion. Then the feast at the table,
the re-union of friends long since separated,
with little knots and groups here and there
discussing- many ass many a ny-gone, the eye
ing passed quietly away, and the occasion was
made one long to be remembered. No one
present could fail to be impressed with the
changes of time. A retrospect of fifty years
of united married life, with its numerous in
cidents and 'changes, was for the honored
pair alone. For others—how many a loved
help mate bad long since been dropped by the
way-side—how many a loved child had been
followed to the grave. A rare thing is a golden
wedding, and all the sons and daughters there
which God gave them, save only one little
lamb !
Great interest seems to have been taken, by
the friends outside of the family in this uni
versal event, and kind wishes and conaratula
lions were received from all quarters—amongst
others from lion. 11.Itoit Speer, at Wash
ington, and Hon. 11. Bucher Swoope, at. Pitts
burg. Valuable and appropriate presents
were made by the children and others to the
i.bride and groom," who in turn proved snore
than generous to those who hart nvrt to houor
Mr. John loiter was born in Huntingdon
county, Sept. 3d, 1897, aid has resided iu that
county ever since. He was for many years
engaged in. the mercantile and shipping busi
ness, but latterly has retired from business
and contented himself with looking after his
farms and coal land. He has always enjoyed
a character fur intelligence, probity and worth
in his county and wherever known. He has
bees for fifty years a member of the Presby
terian Church, and for about that period has
becu Ruling. Elder in the Alexandria church.
He Las been Superintendent of the Sabbath
School for forty-four years, and whilst he has
most generally been the delegate to Presby ,
tery, he has twice been commissioner to the
General Assembly. He was a member of
last General Assembly of the entire church:
when it met at. Pittsburg, and was again a
member of the re-united church at Philadel
phia, 1870. Thus 1837 and 1870 are no less
memorable to him than 1821 and 1871. Du
ring the administration of Governor Snyder
he was commissioned by him 2nd Lieutenant
of Ist company of 2nd battallion of 29th regi
ment of retina. Militia, and v." 11.3 afterwards
made Adjutant of the regitnent. He was elected
to the Legislature for the sessions of 1831-:,
and though often importuned since to run for
the same and other positions of honor, he has
steadfastly refused. He has delighted, far
many years, in giving much of his time and
mesas to the church with which lie has been
so long connected, and we know lie esteems it
no greater honor than to be a faithful servant
of the Master whom he ims long and faithfully
endeavored to follow. -
The children are : Rev. Thomas C. Porter,
D. D., Professor in Lafayette College, Easton.
Ile was married to a Mss Kunkle, sister of the
late John C. Kunkle, Esq., of Harrisburg.
George B. Porter, Pennsylvania Furnace, who
was married to a daughter of the late John
Lyon, Esq. Maj. Jim. M. Porter, who is mar
ried to a daughter of Maj. W. Moore, of Al
eaandria. C. Howard Porter, who is married
to a dam :fitter of lion. Thad Banks, of Holt,

Sawa. Milliken, Erg., of 110111daysborg; An

vania Furnace; Clara, wife of Dr. S. T.
Charlton, of Harrisburg, and Ellen, wife of
Aug. S. Landis, Esq., of lionidaysbnrg. There
are also living eighteen grand children.
Mr. and Mrs. Porter still reside in Alexan
dria. All their children haze married and left
the parental roof, and thus, as fifty years ego,
Viey arc alone. But they are in the enjoy
ment of good health, and in the posseasion
all their mental faculties. And so, after a
family re union perhaps never to lie ro
tented, they turn from the congratulations and
kind wishes of their children, their grand chil
dren and friends, once more to the comforts
and enjoyments of their quiet home. And
who, as he stepped out on the threshold of
that hospitable roof, or as the carriage roiled
away from the door, would not in the fullness of
his heart invoke the richest blessings of Heav

day last week, was thrown off and ore of the

the only wonder is, that more accidents do not
occur. Parents, why do you leave your chil

daily, sad yet you do not train your children
better or it would not be done. Do you want
your children to be crippled? Certainly you
do not, then see that they keep away from

The following infamous circular has been ex
tensively ciren:ated all over the country, and
as a specimen of impudence and criminal so
licitation, it excced3 in infamy all the many
e:renlar letters which the scoundre:s, who
live their headquarters in New York City,
have been able is concoct. We hope there
are none so verdant as to yield to a solicita
tion or this kind. But when we remember,
that almost weekly, we hear ofa simpleton who
has been '•token in" and "done for" we would
not be ,urprised in bearing of ...body get
ting into the clutches of the lair :
Aar Sir :—While conversing with a gen
tleman Irmo your locality recently, you were
named a- a shrewd and reliable person, guff
one likely to enter into a business the nature of
which will be explained in this :ester. At ali
events, he said whether you go in or not, you
would keep a still tongue, and would not ex
pose me. lie totd me that under no cireuni
• stances must I inform you wito recommended
you, and as I claim to be a Mall of honor, I
will never violate a pledge. Ile who recom
mended you shall never know that you took
Cold of it. I have on hand and am constantly
manufacturing large quantities of the bess
counterfeit money ever produced in the world.
The sizes are $2, $5 and $lO bills and Su cent
stamps. They are printed on first , class bank
note paper. The signatures are per.eet and
the engraving is admirable. Not one banker
in 500 can detect them. I will take a solemn
oath that the bills which I send you will never
be detected, unless you make your business
known to persons who have no right to know
it. The least amount I sell at one Hine is
$509. I charge $45 in good money for a
package. For a $1,005 package 1 shalt
charge you $BO. For a $2,500 package I shalt
charge $l9O. For a $5,000 package I shah.
charge you To af f ord you to attest the
matter thoroughly before you invest much
money, I shall requ ire but one fourth of the 111011
ey in advance, and will wait 30 days for the re
maining three-fourths. Therefore, if you pur
chase a $5OO package, you must scud me
4jll 23 in ads - auce by express, and I will wait
30 days for the balance. If you desire more
than $5OO of my money, all you have to do is
to send me one-fourth of the price, and I will
immediately forward you the stuff.
When you send me any money or letters,
go to the nearest railway station, ask the ex
press agent for a money envelope, insert your
letter with the money and see that it is prop
erly directed to me. Never send any money
in a registered letter, as the clerk in the regis
tered letter department has a suspicion of my
business. Your express agent never heard 01
me and he will have no idea of the nature 51
the business you are about to transact with
use. When writing to me, always write your
name very plainly, also the name of your town
and county. If you can spare time come 011
and see me. Call at my private office, No. 11
Ann street, room 8, second floor. Don't make
any inquiries of any person, bat come straight
to the office. I will then conduct you to my
manufactory, where you can select whatever
quantity of the bills you desire. No person in
the building k ows what business I carry on ;
therefore you arc just as safe as if you were
going into a theatre. Homy person suspected
my business 'would not have yAt cal. Now. '
sir, if you manage this business properly you
can make $20,000 in a year. You have unu
sual advantages for passing the bills with per
fect safety. Always ruffle them up to stake
them appear slurry and old. You can pass one
of my bills at every store, and, as the c'•^-ge
you receive will be geouille, you will be able
to clear at least $2,000 a month. Not one in
ten thousand of your neighbors can distiugu
Lab a genuine bill front one of mine. There-
fore you are foolish for not grasping an op
portunity to make money that may never oc
cur again. I could name a man in your vicin •
sty who made a fortune in the same way. All
his neighbors wonder how he made it. Gut he
keeps a still tongue. Probably you know who
I mean. I deal on the “square" and if you are
true to me you will never regret it. I pray
you will not betray me in ease you do not go
in. You will find by dealing with me that I
have the best counterfeit money in the coun
try' and that I deal more honorably than any
other man in the business, because I deal on
the "square." The reason I ask you for any
cash in advance is, it will be a guarantee of
good faith, and satisfy me that you really
mean business. Read my terms carefully and
remember them. Bear in mind that I will I I
give no more credit thanl state in this letter.
- One or two of my bills have already been
passed on you, and you have in turn, 'sassed
them on others. Therefore you should be
fami iar with their appearance and quality ;
of course you did rot know they were counter
feits. Read the following instructions care
fully. Be sure and follow theta. Then no
mistake can be nettle. If you come on call at
11 Ann street, roses 8, up stairs, but if you
send ne money or letter by express, direct it
to sty manufactory as follows

A Fus, EY IVOMAN.—A few weeks ago
it was our fortune to have a genuine Miss
Fussey committed to cur charge, and of all the
"worry" that we have gone through, in this
troublesome sphere nothing in our experience
bordering on the ridiculous was to us half so
ridicuously ridiculous as this. We intended
to leave on the eleven o'clock train. It is now
half past nine ; an hour and a half till train
time. Here she come,
"Oh dear, Fin so worried all day. I've just
been going constantly to get ready. Do you
think the train will soon be here? Uh, it is
so slow ! An hour and a half yet? Indeed!
I thought it would be here in a couple of min
utes. I think I've everything ready now.
Woiider whether my trunk has gone to the
station? See the porter, do, its got my name
on it—he can't mistake it. What if they
would mistake it? Do you-think I would ever
get it again ? Oh, yes; checks, exactly! Ido
wonder what I was thinking about. There !
Ain't that the whistle? Yes it to. Let's go!
Only ten o'clock? Well, is it possible? Let
me see ! have I got everything ? Where arc
my artics ? Bless me 1 did I forget- my over
shoes ? Do run and get them I The train will
be here before you get back and I can't go
without theta? However it will not be very
cold in the train, do you think it will? Oh,
yes, I can go without them 1 But here he
comes with them! glad I am that I
missed them in time ! I could not have gone
without them! I thought I had everything.
Now I guess I am ready. Pretty near time
now ain't it ? Only half past ten ! Are you
sure your time is right? Suppose it was teo
slow and it went and left us? Yes, we would
take the next train, but it is such a trouble to
get reedy again. You say we will walk down?
Very well, I'm ready! Let me-see! Where is
my basket? Did you see my basket any
where? I certaialy had it here! Didn't you
See, it? Oh my here it is hanging on my arm !
Pm all through other ready now !
Where is my veil? I'm sure I put it in my bas
ket before I left home! Its not in my pocket
now? Oh on my bonnet! \Veil, did you ever!
Such a mix as I am in I Do you think the
porter took my trunk down ? I do wonder ?
What if we were to go °if and leave it?
Where did I put the check? Oh, you have it?
But suppose the baggage -master forgot it?
You think it will all be right? I do hope it
will ! Is this ticket right? Are you sure it
is? Tilers ! vogue is the train ! Where is
my basket, my veil, my ticket? Hurry! hurry!
or we will be left! Why not get iu this car ?
Oh its tic mail car is it? This one then?
Baggage, eh? !low provoking! What a
pleasant fellow that conductor is 1 Bow kind!
Such a nice mustache I Bless me ! I've lust
my glove ! Oh run into the ticket office and
get it for me I must have dropped it there?
I ant sure I had it ! Its . too late now the train
is starting 1 Wonder if the conductor would
stop the train a minute if I were to ask him ?
Be is so pleasant ! Oh, see here, I've got my
glove ! It was in my pocket! Tickets I where
is my ticket ? You gave tug one I Well what
could I have cone with it! What a pleasant
conductor! Who is that fine looking gentle
man in front of us ! What fine whiskers I
Olt, here is the ticket sticking in my glove!
Such a stew as I ant in I"

in that sort of a "stew" until the end of the
trip while we were constantly in hot water.

• U ar;el,, Pra•ly
written by us, a few weeks ago, upon adver
tising agents, has been copied into several pa
pers that have come to our notice, and we feel
gr-' , ed to know that a number of our co
temporaries are willing to join us in an effort
to establish the independence of the country
press. We have every respect for the ad , er
tisin:.; agency which deals fairly and squarely,
and treats us like out gentleman treats another,
but we cannot be bullied into accepting what
ever is offered us, and if our prices should
be accepted, be sharped into doing twenty
time the amount of work that would be re
quired by a home advertiser. The following
copied from the Carroll Couhty (Ill.) Gazette
is suggested by our article, we think, and
though in the interest of so af;eney,
some handsome truths:
"In looking over the lists is this vicinity,
as made out by this firm, we very frequently
see ineltnled papers of very small circulation
in counties that contain other first class jour
nals of good circulation. The reason of this
may be that the rates of the former are so
much lower, tb•it tho agents give it the prefer
ence on account of the old adage t "Put money
in thy purse." At the same time the circula
tion may be worth nothing to advertisers,
while the other paper might benefit them ma
terially. We know of papers whose printed
terms are as much as these of the best paper
in the state, and who charge their home cus
tomers these prices invariably, and at the same
time will insert foreign advertisements, for
advertising firms at half or quarter of these
rates and allow them twenty-five per cent corn
mission. No conscientious publisher will do
this. He wll give his home customers cer
tainly as fair a show as he will strangers.
This is a mattter that must .be remedied, in
fact must remedy itself. If the patrons of
these agents were confined to New York and
other eastern cities ; there would be no diffi-.
cultj; in palming off all these papers as the
best in their respective localities. But busi
ness men in different parts of the country are
constantly becoming the patrons of these
agents, and they arc very apt to form an
opinion of their lists, from the papers included.
therein, that are published in their own int
imcdiate neighborhood. The dependence on
general patronage for success, must actually
force all these advertising agents into a re
vision of their lists; weed out second, third
rate and no rate at all journals, and substitute
only first class."
ComiNo.—The approach of the Spring
months brought with it the notes of busy
preparation for building and improvement in
all parts of our borough and suburbs. Already
the masons, carpenters and other mechanics
can be seen at work on dozens of new build
ing,. To get a correct idea of the amount of
labor of this kind in progress, it is but neces
sary to ascend one of the bluffs in the rear of
town, from which a distinct view can be ob
tained for miles in different directions. The
bright, mild weather of March has been very
favorable and many who did not intend com
mencing operations until later in the season
are making their arrangements to begin at
once. All this has been takng, place without
any very positive assurance that the various
improvements, such as furrmees, factories,
rolling mills, he., so much talked of recently,
and which are so desirable as a means of giv
ing. employment to our increasing population,
would ever be erected. Now, however, we
know that the Penna. Canal Company has
commenced a work of importance to Hunting
don and one that will give a new impetus to
the progressive spirit of our people. The en
largement of the Canal will make this the
point for the transfer of heavy freight, such
as coal, lumber, ete., from railroad to canal.
We obtain important information on this sub
ject from the Legal Opinion of Harrisburg,
which we lay before our readers
'•Over 700 men are employed on the Penna.
Canal between Clark's terry and Columbia
(the eastern division) 200 between Clark's
ferry and Rockville, 175 between Rockville
and Harrisburg, 175 between Harrisburg and
one mile below Middletown and 175 between
that point and Columbia. This force is en
gaged in deepening the channel sufficiently to
admit of six feet of water (one foot in advance
of the old depth), increasing the width of the
bottom and strengthening the banks. Before
letting the water into the canal it is the in
tention to have the contemplated improve
ments finished between Clark's ferry and the
point below Middletown, which it is thought
can be effected by the Ist of April. The ob
ject of the Pennsylvania canal company is ulti
mately to have cimilar improvements perfected
along the entire line, but before its full' accent
plishment several years will necessarily
—Repairs are rapidly going forward on this
road. The cid trestles are being rapidly re
placed with sew ones, while at least one has
been filled up so that the road is assuming a
most substantial character. Under the man,
agment of Superintendent John M'lCillips the
road has been paying and at the same time
been kept in an excellent state of repairs. Mr.
M'Killips deserves great credit for his success
ful management of this enterprise and we be•
hove it is universally conceded to him.
thgdon JOURNAL is a good paper, indeed, one
of the best of our local exchange . The town
of Huntingdon is situated on a first class rail
road, and will, before long, be at the head of
slack water navigation. The people of the
town and county of Huntingdon aria an enter
prising class, and need, and deserve, the en
couragement and support of the local news
paper. To do this properly and with enect
should be the study and delight of such an
enterprising and go-ahead paper as the Jove-
SAL. But such is not the case. The editor of
that sheet imagines lie can attend to other
people's business as well, if not a little better,
than to his own. He imagines himself "mon
arch of all he surveys," and several counties
thrown in. L . our streets are muddy, if a
poor, but honest, man in Bedford county
builds a hen roost at what the editor of the
Ic^asaL thinks to be the wrong place, he at
once makes him the subject of severe news
paper criticism. What interest the people of
Huntingdon can possibly have in our affairs,
purely local, we cannot for a moment &Aide.
But the JOURNAL seems to think otherwise.
And on this rock we split.
We once heard of a man in Kentucky who
got immensely wealthy by—minding his ow n
business. Let the editor of the Jounxat pro

The Bedford fellows don't like an outsider
to say any thing about their "lien roost," the
Poor-House. Outsiders can compliment their
springs, town clock, water works, etc., etc., as
much as they please and they are wonderfully
tickled, puffed up, and feel their keeping, but
the moment there is any allusion to their Poor
ilou,e the claws of the auhnal appear in all
their ugliness. This .;:s our business, howev
er ; we help "to pay the piper." The local of
the Gaz2ite is only mad because we give our
Bedford county readers more of their local
news than he does But, friend John, you
can draw on our columns us much as you
please. We won't complain. Do publish our
article on the Poor House.

111. C. R IL—We are pleased to learn
that the extension of the above named road,
from M'Kee's Gap to Martinsburg, is now a
fixed fact. Chief Engineer Joe. A. Wilson
has adver;ised that proposals for grading the
road to Martinsburg will be received up to the
25th inst. This will be welcome news to the
people of Martinsburg and vicinity, as it will
give the farmers and business ma of the Cove
an outlet to the world which they have long
felt the need of. We had the pleasure of tak
ing a ride with engineer Young and conduc
tor Stroup on Saturday, over the road to
Brooke's to which point it is now
completed, and from the energetic manner in
which the work has thus far been pushed, we
may reasonable expect to ride into Martins
burg behind the iron horse before the autumn
leaves begin to fall. So mote it

dwelling house or Donald St. George Frazier,
Esq., near Saxton, Bedford county, was entire
ly consumed by fire on last Thursday. The
inmates of the house were sitting at the din
ner table, unconscious of the presence
of the devouring clement, when they
were first arousod to a sense of their danger
by their neighbors giving the alarm of "Fire!"
The greater portion of the furniture was saved.
A large New Foundland dog, belonging to Mr.
Frazier, is said to have accomplished wonders
in carrying out articles of value belonging to
the house. The fire is supposed to have orig
inated from a spark falling upon the roof from
the stove-pipe. The ions is estima'ed ut $4OOO.
