universal activity. They contain not only
rare specimens of human idiosyncrasies, but
afford a general view of life in every possible

they minister to love ; they speak of change ;
sometimes they excite a smile, sometimes a

The art of advertising, if not one of the
fine arts, is certainly one of the most useful.
In fact it has become almost necessary to

who have endeavored to make it in reality a

the way in England of liberal and systematic
advertising by impressing his razor strop in

instances of business success in this country
by means of advertising, and in fact nine out
of every ten of our successful business men
will inform you that they owe their prosperity
to liberal advertising.
The season is at hand when our merchants
and traders are receiving fresh stocks of goods
for the spring trade. The competition in trade
is quite lively, and lie only succeeds who con
stantly, by advertising, keeps before the pub

ple require. The man or firm that does not
advertise cannot expect to succeed in business.

bIrOItTANT TO SCHOOL DIRECTORS.—
We copy the following from the late school
law, for the information of some of our school
boards, that they may know what the law re
quires of them: It shall be the duty of the
board of directors to publish an annual state
ment of the amount of moneys received and
expended, and the amount due from collectors,
and setting forth all the financial operations of
the district, by one or more publications in
one or more newspapers of the county in
which they reside. If there is an amount of''
tax not collected, or any amount due to the
district, it is to be stated as "amount of - -
yet due," at the foot of receipts, and so car
ried out; and if there is an amount of debt
yet due by the district ; it is to be stated as
"amount yet due for and so carried out
at the foot of expenditures ; in order, in both
cases, to balance the account in accordance
with the facts. If there was a building tax
and a house or houses erected during the year,
the amount of the b:ilding tax, and of the
portion of it expended in the year for this pur
pose, it is to be stated in the same way, with
the balance on hand, or the debt for this pur
'pose, if any, under proper heads "Receipts,"
and "Expenditures for Building," RS in case of
ordinary school tax and expenditure.

Grand Jury, some twelve were continued till

in Carbon township in June last, and the trial
was reported after the first trial.
William Griffith of Broad Top, charged with
manslaughter, in causing the death of Mrs.
Mary Ann Morrison in November last, was
tried and acquitted. The facts elicited in the
progress of the trial were about as follows
The accused was a man of intemperate habits,
and had , been absent from home a day or two
on a drunken spree, returning some time du
ring the night of the 25th of November,
Thanksgiving day. It seems that he had n o
family, and the old lady that he was charged
with having killed was, and had for some time
previously, been living with him as his house
keeper. About 4 o'clock on the morning of
the 25th, some of the neighbors were aroused
by the accused who stated to them that some
one had murdered the old lady, and on going
to the house they found her lying upon the
floor lifeless, her head badly bruised and her
elbow dislocated, injuries which upon a post
mortem examination were found sufficient to
cause her death. It was in evidence that the
accused was seen during the day at Dudley,
and later in the evening at Cookstown, on his
way home, and also within a short distance
of his dwelling about 9 o'clock at night. No
other person had been known to be near the
house, and the old lady was seen by one of
the neighbors on the previous afternoon'
Nothing more is known of Griffith till his ap
pearance at the house of one of his neighbor s
the next morning as aboVe described, with
the information of the murder. No weapons
had been used in the accomplishment of the
murder; no other masks of violence were
found on the body, and, except the breaking
of one window, no disarrangements of the
furniture to indicate that the deed of death
had been perpetrated by any oue for the pur
pose of robbing the house. The statement
made by the prisoner next morning was that
on arriving at the house he found the back
door locked, contrary to the usual custom in
his absence and failing to awaken the old lady
or obtain an entrance to the building, he was
about to leave the premises when he discover
ed that the front door was unlocked and ajar,
and upon entering the house that he stumbled
over something on the floor but was not in a
condition to examine what it was, and sat
down there till morning when he found the
old lady lying dead and immediately started
out to give the alarm. That a murder was
committed was clearly established by the evi -
deuce, and not denied, but additional facts
elicited did not seem sufficient in the opinion
of the jury to fix the guilty agency on any one,
and the perpetrator, whoever he may be, has
so far escaped the hand of justice, while the
whole matter remains shrouded in mystery
which human skill is as yet unable to solve,
and the lashings of a guilty conscience may
in all probability be the only punishment
meted out, in this life, to the murderer.

PUBLIC SCHOOLS OF IhINV"NODON.—
Mr. Editor.—lt was my pleasure to visit the
public school of II untingdon a few days ago.
The system which was adapted for the last
term of having a principal to superintend all
the schools has worked admirably. The schools
Ere evidently improved. Too much cannot be
said in commendation of the faithful corps of
live teachers in these schools.
We know something about the toils of the
school-room, having had a practical experi

with the teacher as well as critcise his work
I was pleased with the singing in the schools.
It was very good. It seems to me that in ev.
ery public school vocal music ought to be
taught. If teachers cannot sing they might
teach the children the principles of vocal mu
sic and they would gladly do the singing.
Who does not love to hear children sing?

other good trait is that there is not much
prompting,. Children ought to be permitted
to say all they know about a subject, and then
be told that which is too difficult for their
mind to comprehend. Some teachers have

We may .be truly proud of our schools—
what a contrast between the schools of to-day

I was pleased too, to hear the scriptures

PITTSBURGH AND BALTlMORE—Com
pletion of the Pittsburgh and Connelisrilk Bail
road.—The following dispatch announces the
gratifying consummation of a work which has
been long anticipated, and which must tend
largely to enhance our business, swell our
population, and increase our wealth:
SECTION 90, P. &C. R. R., 1
MONDAY, April 10, 1871.
C. P. Brigham, Esq., Editor of Pittsburgh (Mame-rata
We drove the last spike at 3:20 o'llock to
day. W. O. HUGHART
President P. k C. R. R. Co.
The last spike, binding the rail which closed
the gap in the track, and completed the con
nection between Pittsburgh and Baltimore via
Cumberland, was driven yesterday afternoon,
at twenty minutes past three o'clock, at a point
near the Forge Bridge, three miles west of
Mineral Point, the original place of meeting
of the tracklayers.
The President, W. 0. Hughart, Esq., and
Chief Engineer and former President, B. H.
Latrobe, Esq., of Baltimore, performed the du
ty of “spiking" the last rail.
SPEECHES OP MESSRS. LATROBE AND HUGHART.
A very large crowd of people witnessed the
driving of the last spike. When it was being
driven there was loud cheering, and when it
had been finished Mr. Latrobe said:
I commenced the road in 1837, and the
President completed it. I have always at
tached more honor to the one who finishes a
work of this kind than to him who commences
it, and I cheerfully give to the President that
honor. Continuing he said, five and thirty
years ago he came over the valley and made
the first survey of the line, and was it not now
an occasion for joy and gladness that the road
was completed. He said that it was a great
road, and proceeded in his usual eloquent style
to portray to the people of Somerset county
the untold benefits they would derive by the
completion of the road. He next referred to
the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad .Company to
which the Connellsville Company had allied
itself, and stated that the driving of the last
spike did not by any means complete the road.
Were it to stop here it would not be in accor
dance with the age of progress. There was
yet a great work to be done, and when it was
done and the road successfully opened, the
speaker would be brought to realize the many
advantages of an independent line.
He then thanked the people for their kind
attention, end characterized the gladness and
joy every where manifested as befitting the
occasion. He congratulated Mr. Hughart, not
only as a most successful President, but on
having struck more correctblows on the spike,
and excusing hifriself for his b_evity by rea
son of a lack of breath, in consequence of the
labor attendant upon driving the spike. He
was frequently interrupted by applause, and
when done was vociferously cheered.
Mr. Hughart was now called on from every
quarter, and in response, said he had not ex
pected to see any one present but those sturdy
sons of toil who had labored all of last winter
and until now upon this line of road. He said
nobody had been invited by him, but lie most
heartily welcomed everybody present on an
occasion of such vital importance to the.peo
ple of Western Pennsylvania. [Cheers.] What
could be say in addition to what Hr. Latrobe
had spoken. The completion of the road bad
let the bight sun of heaven in upon the coun
ty of Somerset, and had brought the people of
the county into civilization. [Cheers.] He
could but add earnest and heartfelt thanks to
God for what had been done. To this there
was a response "amen" from the lips of a great
He said it had come to be pretty well under
stood at one time that the hemispheres were
divided into three partitions—land, water and
the Pennsylvania Railroad. (Loud Cheers.]
But now the Connellsville road would come in
for a share of this three-fold partition. He
then went on to show to the people a few of
the advantages that would certainly follow the
completion of the road. Paid a glowing tri
bute to Mr. Latrobe, from whom he had at all
times received the most hearty co-operation,
counsel and advice, and upon whom , hecould
rely at all times and under all circumstances
for assistance. To John W. Garrett, Presi r
dent of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, was
also due a considerable amount of praise be
cause of his unwavering zeal and undenying
effort in behalf of the road. The speaker was
warmly applauded. Mr. Page, Secretary and
Treasurer of the Pittsburgh and Connellsville
Railroad was now observed in the crowd and
calls being made for him he said he was no
speech-maker and could not make a speech.
He could but re-echo the language of a man
not blessed with a too great amount of sanity,
who, after hearing the remark of a learned di
vine who had sermonized for a considerably:
time, and then asked what more could he say,
answered for heavens sake say amen. Tiles
could he could say and no more.
Cheers were now given for Mr. Latrobe.,
President Hughart, the Connellsville Railroad,
and the tracklayers, Messrs. Wheeler and Mur
ray, after which Mr. Hughart read congratula
tory messages from parties in Pittsburgh, and
the trains moved off, one carrying Mr. Latrobe
over the western division, and the other Mr.
Hughart and Pittsburghers over the eastern
division. The ride over the eastern end was
most enjoyable, and 'was all that could be de
sired. P. F. S.
Immediately upon the completion of the
track, a passenger train from Pittsburgh—the
first passing over the road east of Confluence
—took aboard all present—Messrs. Latrobe
and Blanchard, of the Baltimore and Ohio Rail
road, and Messrs. Hughart, Page, Pendleton,
Stout and Turner, of the Connellsville Road;
Caren, Angell and citizens of Confluence,
Cumberland and Connellsville, and started di=
rectly to Cumberland, which was reached
The train consisted of one passenger car and
baggage tar, with Mr. Samuel Beatty as Con
ductor, Mr. John E. Sampsel, Engineer, and
Win. Wilson, Fireman.
On leaving Connellsville, nine car loads of
iron were attached to the train, and the opin
ion was freely expressed that Engine No. 7
could not take it to Confluence, the grades
being about thirty feet to the mile to this
point. But Mr. Sampsel did take the train to
Confluence without experiencing the least
trouble. Here he was met by Engine No. 719,
of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, Wm. John
son, engineer, which took the cars of iron and
pushed them up the grade of fifty-two feet to
the mile, until near Brooke tunnel, which, in
consequence of being unfinished, has to be
passed on top. A temporary road, over a mile
up and a mile and a half down, in zig zag form
has been constructed, with grades of two hun
dred feet-to the mile, over dangerous chasms,
and on the bank of steep declivities. Around,
and up this line the "Camel" pushed the iron
cars—five at a time—and Mr. Sampselfol
lowed with the passenger train, having been
previously given to understand, that it was
useless for him to attempt to take'the train up
the incline. But he was not to be baffled. tie
had been promised two years ago that he and
No. 7 were to take the first train to Cumber
land, and he determined on accomplishing the
task, and it is but simple justice to say he suc
ceeded admirably—with only one hundred and
five pounds of steam, and without using sand,
and in letting the train down the other side
of the mountain, the most rugged and picttr
esque perhaps-encOuntered, lie won the praise
of all on board.
In short, the engine, though small, perform
ed all and more than was expected of herould,
when she made her appearance with the train
;'resident Ileghart's car, was greeted with
cheers'and waving of handkerchiefs.
'Yesterday - morning, there was ft mile and
280 feet of track to be laid, but bright and
early the mcp were at work, and so energeti
cally and rapidly did it progress that the cud
was reached at the time stated.
The. total length of the road to Baltimore is
925 miles, and from Pittsburg to Cumberland
—the division now completed-149 miles. Ex
press trains, when running regularly, will
make the time in eleven hours to Baltimore,
and ten hours to the National Capitol, by the
the Point of Rocks route. Of course there is
a great deal of work yet to do, but when all is
completed the total cost of the road will foot
up the sum of $9,000,000.
On next Monday through passenger trains
will likely commence running, there being one
train cinch way daily.
The route of the road has been described so
often and so fully in ourcolumns that it would
be useless to repent it. Suffice it, therefore,
to say that it passes up the north bank of the
Youghiogheny until it reaches Confluence,
thence winding along the Laurel Hill river until
near Brooke tunnel, where it leaves the last nam
ed stream, passes through or over the hill 'and
strikes on the other side of the mountain the
Castleman river; following the north bank of
this stream also to Sand Patch tunnel. After
passing through here it strikes the headwaters
of Wills creek, and follows down Wills creek,
until it reaches Cumberland. It is an easy
route, of grades perhaps not excelled, and is
the shortest route through the Allegheny
This town, the .me of which was changed
from "Turkey-foot," is eighty-five miles from
Pittsburgh, and sixty-five miles from Cum
berland. It is a perfect Turkey-foot, made
so by the peculiar• natural course of the Yough
iogheny, Castleman and Laurel Hill rivers. It
contains about twenty-five houses thus far,
a good hotel, kept by Barney Winslow, form
erly conductor on the Pittsburgh and Connels
ville railroad and is sure to become the Al
toona of the road. The town has been eligi
bly laid out, and a large number of lots sold,
and it only remains for the Railroad Company
to develop the business of the line to make
Confluence among the first towns in the State-
Our reporter was informed that four acres ly
ing immediately contigous to the railroad have
been set apart for a public square to be known
as Logan Place. Orders have been given by
the Confluence Compeny for the grading of
the streets running around the square, for the
same, and also for the planting of one hundred
trees in the Park. The point plat comprises
one hundred and thirty acres, but including
the'plats on either side of the Castleman and
Laurel Hill rivers, which will be connected
with bridges, already contracted for, the whole
town will contain four hundred and eighty
five acres. A bridge across the Tough will
also connect Fayette county with the new town•
The railroad company have orders out for the
erection of a large depot and station house,
and the Confluence company have laid out
grounds for a large hotel, for the accommoda
tion of the traveling public. On the north
bank of Laurel Hill river, as our reporter was
informed, a large number of summer residen
ces will be built this season.
The stations, after leaving Comte'Wyllie, at
present established, are in the order named :
White Rock, Sand Works, Indian Creek,
Ohio Pyle, Bidwell, Draketown Run. Conflu
ence, Ursine, Brook Tunnel, Castleman, Mid

dent of the First Branch of the City Council of
Baltimore telegraphed as follows to Mr. Hugh
art : "Allow me, in the name of the citizens

JUDGE PAXSON ON DRUNKENNESS.—
In a recent charge to the grand jury, Judge
Paxson, of Philadelphia, thus speaks of the
offense of drunkenness "From the able and
interesting report referred to, 1 extract the
further facts that, out of the above stated
number of commitments for the past year,
3283 were for intoxication; and that the en
tire number of commitments, 11,266, or about
four-fifths, are traceable to intemperance.
This is a starting fact, and one which should
be brought to the knowledge of every person
not only in this city, but throughout the Com
monwealth. The offense of drunkenness itself,
aside from the crimes of which it is the active
cause, has become n very great evil in this
city. It is so common that many persons have
ceased to regard it as a violation of law;
whereas not only public but a private intoxi
cation has been an offense for a very long
period. By the third section of the act of 22d
of April, 1794, it is provided that 'if any per
son shall intoxicate him or herself by the ex
cessive drinking of spirituous, vinous, or other
strong liquors, and shall be convicted thereof,
he or she shall forfeit and pay the sum of sixty
seven cents for every such offense; or if such
person shall refuse or neglect to satisfy the
said forfeiture, or goods and chattels cannot
be found whereof to levy the same by distress,
he or she shall be committed to the House of
Correction of the proper county, • not exceed
ing twenty. four hours.
"This, it will be observed, inflicts a penalty
for private drunkenness. So greatly does the
law abhor this vice that it punishes it even if
committed in the privacy of a man's own
"Public drunkenness is also an offense, and
is more serious by reason of its evil example.
The act of Assembly, 41st of March, 1856, pro
vides that any person who shall be found in
toxicated in any street, highway, public house,
or public place shall be fined, upon the view
of or upon proof made before any mayor, al
derman, or justice of the peace, not exceeding
five dollars, to be levied with the proper cost,
upon the goods and chattels of the defendant.
"A subsequent act has reduced the fine to
two dollars, which is certainly a very moder
ate one for an offense so hurtful to the public
morals. The proceedings, it will be seen, are
summary in their nature, and it is to be re
gretted, in view of the number of drunken
melt, boys, and even females, to be seen upon
our streets, that the law upon this subject is
not more rigidly enforced. No man, however
respectable his position in society, should be
allowed to exhibit himself upon the streets of
the city in a state of intoxication without be
ink arrested and fined for such conduct. For
the respectable man the excuse is less, and the
effect of the evil example the greater. The
law recognizes no social distinctions. It falls
as the dew of heaven, alike upon the poor and
upbn the rich."—Legal Opinion.
