HUNTINGDON & bROAD TOP RAILROAD.
—This road of late is becoming one among
the most important of the State. The first
object of building it was principally for an
outlet from the vast coal fields of Broad Top.
This alone has made it of considerable impor
tance, sod will Busily be a success, as there is
now about as much coal being shipped over it
as any other road in the Union. Sot it, like
other roads has planted the seed of enterprise,
and the result is, business of all kinds is fast
springing up along its route, making trade, for
the road and saving money for the communi
ties through which it passes.
At present it extends from Huntingdon to
Mt. Dallas, a distance of about 44 miles,
but is under construction to Bedford, a dis
tance of eight miles, and from thence to
Bridgeport, about twenty-four miles, making
altogether about eighty miles. When the
road is completed it will form one of the best
lines for traveling South and Westward in the
Slate, making a direct and continuous line to
Pittsburg... o We cannot boast of the fatness of
the laud through which it passes as the geo
graphical location of the better portion of the
country was not suitable for a railroad, hence
it was shifted to a more suitable location,
which happened on a whole, to be the poorest
part of the country until it gets in the vicinity
of Bedford, where it strikes through better
land ; but to those of a cultivated taste, and
who admire natural scenery, there is every
thing to instruct and please. The fact is
there are few roads that can boast of more
beautiful scenery. There is something to suit
almost every taste, mountains and hills, rocks
and rills, rivers and bridges, and almost every
thing else except " breakdowns," which have
occurred so seldom that such a thing a bridge
breaking, a trestle tumbling to a side, or the
iron horse running off the track is never
thought of. The perfect safety that now at
tends this road is due to Mr. John M'Killips,
the present Superintendent. As an evidence
of his perfect confidence in the safety of the
road, he is found aboard almost every train:
It is true that while so beautifully sailing
through the air, over a ravine or across the
river, some chicken hearted souls wriggle and
twist and scream a little, but that is owing
to a natural weakness of such creatures who
always cry in the absence of danger. Such
persons lose the best part of the ride, as those
places are undoubtedly the safest part of the
road, no accident having occurred to passen
gers since its construction. The sights in
passing over the highest trestles and bridges
arc grand, and were it not for the Pleasure of
having a "look" from the highest points we
would call it a dull ride.
Another grand feature of the road is the
Bedford Springs, one of the desirable
summer resorts in the State, and perhaps in
the Union. The waters arc not so efficacious in
restoring invalids to health as were they of
the pool of Bethesda, but when enjoyed in
connection with pure air and other advan
tages that the place affords, they have invigor
ated the mind and given health to the body
when medical treatment failed. By the time
of hot winds and long days the road will be
completed to Bedford, which is in close prox
imity to the mundane paradise, and the health
seeking And pleasure loving public will have
all desirable facilities of reaching the modern
Bethesda. Therefore we would say to the
traveling public, if you wish to take a pleas
ant ride, enjoy beautiful scenery, haying a sue
cessful hunting excursion, catch trout or talie
a bath in the Bedford Springs, get aboard the
" Broad Top."—Crine.
SPdOKE CONDENSER.-A test experi
ment to condense smoke and utilize it for fuel
was successfully made at Pittsburgh on Sat
urday last. The Comwrcia/ gives the follow
ing description of the test
The inv,ntion certainly demonstrated to
those present that coal (or slack, which was
the article used) can be consumed as fuel with
oat permitting the escape of a single particle
of smoke. A small furnace about two and a
half feet high and thirty inches square, was
erected in front of an ordinary locomotive
noiier, and on arranged that the fuel was
wholly consumed in the furnace, and the heat
and flame only conducted under the boiler, by
means of a communicating flue. The furnace
is prcvided with an ordinary fire bed of grate
bars, but the front is all closed up except a
small aperture, two inches wide by eight inch
es long, for the admission of air. The slack
is supplied through a hopper, immediately
over the fire bed, and combustion started by
air which is admitted through the small open
ing already described. The gases In the foal
are here set free, and start off with the draft
towards the boiler.. An opening is left in the
top of the furnace, about midway between the
hopper and boiler, through which a Strong
:trent of cold sic is Admitted. In the rough
model, which we arc now describing this open
ing is about eight inches square, The air,
striking the flame and mixing with the gases,
produces what the inventor calls “perfezt corn
bastion•." A brilliant white flame is the re
gal!. so intense that no smoke `or soot escapes
unconscmed. The quantity of air admitted at
this was regulated by placing a fire brick over
the aperture, but in a properly constructed
furnace the draft is regulated by dampers
The flame i- of such dayzling brightness that
it pains the eye, and compares with the .sun
itself in brilliancy. The teat is an intense
that it cannot safely be applied tinder the
boilers directly, but it can be so regulated that
with its US& tile boilers will sustAin much less
injury than:by the urdint4 method of genera
ting steam. The'boiler used in this tort was
a fifteen horse power, and pressure of ;sixty
poands was maintained, the fuel need being
at the rate of three bushels of slack in ten
hours. The furnace, however can be so regu
lated so to produce as much or as little heat
as may be -required. try throwing open the
furnace door of the boiler, and thus admitting
an access of void sir, smoke will issue in about
five seconds from the top c,f the stack, and
cease in about the same time, after the door
is closed.- This eiterlineht Was tried a num
her of tithes tti shbw how perfectly the appa
ratus worked. All present were greatly in
terested in the results, and seemed convinced
that the invention could be applied satisfaa
torily in all our manufactories. It is to be
hoped that Mr. McKenzie will have an oppor
tunity to apply his furnace to.soine of the lar
ger establishments, so that its practical work
ings may - be more fully demonstrated:

I.lOltR !SON 'S CO V E.—A correSpondent
of the Hollidaysburg Standard is indignant at
the newspaper press for calling the "Great
Cove" or -'Morrison's Cove" "Leather Cracker
Cove ;" and he proceeds to give a brief state
ment of facts. We some fifteen years ago,
published a history of Leather Cracker, which,
if resurrected, would settle its status. We
will look it up. At the time of its publication
it was a little unpopular, and' the only wonder
was that we escaped with a whole hide, but it
was, nevertheless, very. near.y. correct. The
Standaid correspondent says:
Whilst "interviewing" several papers we
noticed various articles, written by different
persona, giving vent to their pent up imagina
tions in regard to this beautiful and fertile
valley by terming it, vulgarly, "Leather
Cracker Cove." This Cove; attopt-.which we
write, was'originally called the "Great Cove,"
and subsequently "Morrison's Cove," and was
settled by Seoteli-Irish
. as early as 1749.
"Morrison'' Cave" commences at Pattonsville,
in Bedford county, and terminates at Wit.
hamburg, on the "Blue Juniata.," in Blair
.county—bounded ; by lltiniting's and Lock
mountains on the west and Tussey mountain
on the east—being about thirty miles in length
and averaging six miles in width, containing
an area of about two hundred square miles.
It comprises six townships, viz: Woodbury,
Huston, Taylor, and North, Middle and South
Woodberries, the two latter lying in Bedford
county. The name is familiar to every school
boy within its litaits, owing to the fact that
the first permanent settler was one Morris, in
whose honor the name was changed from
"Great Cove" to "Morrison's Cove" about
the year 1770.
It is true that a small portion of this great
cove, lying in the south-eastern part, within
the limits of i3edford county, containing an,
area of some two hundred acres, is called'
"Leather Cracker." It is bounded on the east
by Tussey mountain, west by Mutton Ridge,
the two approximating to a point -at the south
ern end, (and right in here is "[Adder Krack
er.") The origin of its name, as handed down
trotu generation to generation, is as follows:
In the happy days of yore—long gone, John,
forever—when our grandfathers wore leather
breeches, one of the first inhabitants, with gun
on his shoulder, wended his way up the steep
-acclivities of the far-famed "Mutton Ridge" in
search of deer. And havidg imbibed to freely
of the "0 be joyful," he wandered far from
friend and house. During his peregrinations
and perambulations among the cliffs and rocks,
his feet slipped and lie was precipitated into
the abyss below—the result of which was a
crack and—rent in his leather, breeches, the
air becoming noisome with foul perfume !
Hence the name "Leather Cracker." Such
being the origin of the name, and confined to
en small a portion of this extensive valley, it
seems unfair to apply the vulgar phrase to the
whole area embraced within these picturesque
mountains—the Alps of America.
Hoping that writers may profit by this com
munication, and in the future give its proper
and significant title—' Itorrison's Cove"—we.
remain yours truly.
31ARKLESBURO ITEMS.—The following
items we clip from the Cr i tic published at
Our genial friend, Wm. Reed, is building
a new residenc?. on north side of Railroad
street, immediately below Main. If Svc are
to judge by the foundation he has laid, amount
of lumber near at hand, and number of car
penters, masons, etc., already at work, we
think it will be a first-class residence.
"Our young enterprising; and gooa looking
friend, J. A. Feiffner, is erecting a neat and
commodious building on the west side of Main
street, lower end, to be used by him as a car
riage and wagon manufactory. It promises to
be a good building. We had predicted that
Jim would lie compelled to erect it cottsge for
his future comfort before oilier buildings.
"The amount of iron ore shipped from this,
is, we are sorry to nay, on the decrease. Du
ring the month of April only about four hun
dred tons of the red 21:e was shipped on the
H. &B. T. The amount of yellow fossil ship
ped we ard unable to give, as it is not weighed
until after ft leaves this place, but it will fully
equal the amount of red ore. The decrease is
all owing to a scarcity of operators, we are
told, but at the present time the prospect for
an immediate increase is encouraging.
The more enterprising portion of our citi
zens have gone to work with tt sp rit, that con-,
verts hamlets into flourishing towns. We be
lieve it is not to much to say, that the founda
tion is now being laid for a town to outvie our
older and sister boroughs in a business point
of view. A house completed here, another
begun there. A large and neat Lutheran
church about completed, which does credit to
the skill of our mechanics. Why not a hun•
dred more going up? It is not the fault of
capital or location, for we, are favored with
both liere. An investment in this way will
pay two-fold. A larger per onstage than any
other yon could make, besides the extra value
added to your lands, and lastly, the no little
honor attached to the vanguard of such en

THE Alit BRAKE.-48 Arturtaliilitll to
Freight Tiains.—The Westinghouse air brake r
for railway trains, which is now being so large
ly manufactured in this city, has long since
demonstrated its utility and safety in passen
ger trains, bat it has never yet been applied.
to freight trams. The demand for the brakes
for the fitting out of passenger trains has be , P l 'l
so pressing that the company has had no
opportunity to experiment with freight cars...
There is ho.question, however, that the appa
ratus will work as well, and prove as benefi
cial on the one class of ears as on the other,
On Saturday some thirty passenger and bag-.
gage cars, belongipg to the Pennsylvania Rail
road Company, which had been supplied with
the air brake, were collected into one train'
for the purpose of testing the effect of the
brake pa this number of cars. Seven cars is
the number which usually make up the pas
senger trains, while - the freight trains, nre
much larger. Two engines were attached to
the cars, as one was not sufficient to haul
