SABBATH SCHOOL CELEBBATION AT
ALEWDRIA.-Mr. Editor :—The Presbyteri
ans of this place witnessed a gala-day On Sat
urday last, in consequence of a Sabbath
School Celebration which took place in
"Piper's Woods" a short distance from town.
As t.e hour for assembling approached,
groups of old, young and middle aged were
seen emerging from almost every direction,
with baskets of provisions; all tending their
footsteps towards Porter's drug store, where
the eatables we e left to be taken to the
grove in a wagon.
- - - -
At nine o'cloek the bell was rung and all
participating, me. at the church, formed in
procession and marched to the grove.
The procession was headed by the officers
of the school. Next were the female classes,
arranged according to rank, and following
them the male claszes observing the same or
There were two banners in the procession;
one born in front of the ladies, on the one side
of which was the name of the school and on
the other side tie inscription "God is Love."
The other, carried in front of the gentlemen,
exhibited, in connection with the name of the
school, a picture of the open bible.
On reaching the grove all were requested
to he seated, and the exercises of the day were
opened by singing "Happy Greeting" after
which a prayer was offered by the Superinten
dent, Mr. Porter.
Mr. Porter, in a brief address stated the ob
ject for which they had come together. Ile re
minded the children of the source from which
come alt the blessings they enjoy, and admon
ished them that while they engaged in the
festivities of the day they should ever remem
ber "Thou God seest me." The little boy
keeping in mind this important truth and the
one inscribed on that banner would not be
guilty of falsehood, profanity or any wicked
and sinful practice. At the conclusion of his
remarks the school joined in another piece of
feeling that should characterize the assem
blage, with external circumstance so favora
ble. "He must be a churl indeed who feels
dissatisfied with himself or a tytbing around
him on such a pleasant morning as this."
"While everything inau:ma e is so eloquent
ly praising God, should not we who are en
dowed with powers of mind show forth our
gratitude for the continual blessings we en
He thought the celebration eminently an
occasion for reviewing the past, e pecially its
blissings, and for making resolutions for the
Without stopping to notice the general and
continued causes for gratitude, he would
speak of a few special causes, First, we bad
been preserved as a Sabbath School. Over in
Germany and France many a happy Sabbath
school band that met a year ago had since
been broken up by the destructive arm of
war. We should be thankful for the blessings
But our gratitude should also rise for indi
vidual preservation. . .
Other years death had entered our circle
and born away here a pupil and there a teach
er. The Sabbath School of a sister church
had lately been robbed of a beloved teacher.
This year had put his great arm luviugly
aroun 1 us and warded el every dart which
the Destroyer may have aimed at us, and to
day we are superintendent, teachers and pu
pils, an undivided band. Ile hoped it would
be so when we should• be assambled before
the Judge of the world.
after speaking of the influence we exert
upon those with whom we associate, and the
effect of their in lueuce upon no, and our
great responsibility on account of that influ
ence ; and of the importance of placing be
fore us a high ideal of excellence, he closed
by saying that as he looked into the smiling
happy faces before him be was led to think of
the future of these children.
He remembered the wrecks of humanity be
had seen; the drunkard, the sensualist and
the low degraded of every form and when he
reflected that these were once as bright, joy
ous and happy as those before him, and with
as little thought of falling as they, he was
forced to ask whether .Ateh would be the sad
fate of any little boy in his hearing.
lie appealed to them toavoid every step that
tended in this direction, and as total abstinence
was the only safeguard against the fate of the
drunkard, he admonished them to "touch not,
taste not, handle not the wine."
Mr. 11'Divitt acquitted himself very credita
bly, told received the just plaudits of all pre
Mr, Porter said that although he had often
thought of presenting a plEdge of total absti
nence to the Sabbath School, he had neglected
it, but since the subject had been so appropri
ately and forcibly presented by 1 r. M'Divitt,
he would do so now, and if all signed it and
kept it, it would be a very profitable meeting.
So, while a couple of pieces were being sung,
a pledge was passed - around and was signed by
nearly every one present.
These exercises being over, the party separ
ated into different parts of the grove to engage
in various amusements, such as are indulged
in by picnic parties. After an hour or so had
been spent in this way dinner was announced.
Although we eot:lt not say that "the table
legs groaned beneath the luxuries of nature,"
the dinner was none the less relished because
of the fact that the table-cloths were spread
upon the ground. There were viands to tempt
the appetite of the most fastidious, and in
abundance to satisfy all present.
Dinner over the amusements of the day were
resumed, and in these the old seemed to take
as much pleasure as the young, many of them
participating in the games ti at were played
with as great a relish as did the lads and lass
es. These were continued until a late hour in
the day, when a threatening shower dispersed
the happy party, each of which felt that the
day had been pleasantly and profiiably spent.

Alexandria, June 19, 1871,
BLACK SLATE.-PCMOIIS who do not
understand mineralogy, are frequentlx . deceiv
ed by Black Slate, believing it to be the out
cropping of coal.. A gentleman laboring un
der this delusion forwarded, in . a letter, a
specimen of this slate to the editor of the U.
S. Railroad and Mining Register, who dispo
ses of all notions of this kind in the following
"The specimen enclosed in this letter is a
small fragment of black slate, and comes from
a bed of clay charged with a certain percen
tage of carbon. If it were a good deal richer
in carbon than it is, it would be a very poor
coal—a coal which would indeed, but burn
with great difficulty, and leaving such a quan
tity of ashes as to be practically worthless.
Amberson's Valley, is one of the two up
per end divisions of Path Valley, which opens
into the Cumberland Valley at Louden, near
Chambersburg. These valleys are alike geo
graphically. They contain the same rocks.
One and the same mountain (known by many
names, Cove mountain, Tuscarora mountain,
Dividing mountain, Horse Valley mountain, or
North mountain), surround them, forming a
continuous wall, except where streams make
breaches through it, like the gap at Concord,
and the gap about Mount Pleasant Furnace.
The bottoms of these valleys are limestone, of
Silurian age, an age much older than the age
of the Coal Measures. The sides of these are
slopes of slate ; and the enclosing mountain
is a wall of white sandstone. In those very
ancient slates, above the limestone of the val
ley and below the sand rock of the mountain,
are traces of vegetation, or at least of organic
life ; but too scanty to stake a coal bed. Pre
cisely such coaly clay as was sent in this let
ter has been found in a thonsand other places
where this slate formation comes to the snr
face. It comes into the State at the Delaware
Water Gap, and runs past Harrisburg, through
Maryland and Virginia into Tennessee. It en
circles not only Path Valley, but Kislincoquil-
Hs, Brush Valley, Nittany Valley, Morrison's
Cove, Sic , Sm. Everywhere along its outcrop
a little search will reveal thin lavers of tins
black coaly clay ; and hundreds :f thousands
of dollars have been thrown away by farmers •
in following it into the ground to see if it
would turn into a good coal bed. But it nev
er does, and unless human experience is worth
nothing, it never will. The fact is, in that
early age the proper conditions for the deposit
of workable coal beds did not exist; and it is
even doubaul whether the carbon in this clay
came front plants. There are some good reit ,
sons for believing that this clay was blacken:
ed by a charge of atomal carbon. But be this
as it may, the geology of this slate formation
has been too thoroughly and extensively
studied, and too many pits have been sunk in
these very layers of black slate, to leave any
hope alive of ever finding coal in Aniberson's
Valley, or in the other similarly constituted
valleys ahoy, mentioned."

- A (Ivy IS KNOWN BY ITS JOCIINAL,4:'
—lf a traveler wishes to know the character of
the citizens of any city he may learn ii nearly
by simple inspecting its daily journals, and
finding out the extent of the circulation of each.
If he finds the religious papers tolerant and
liberal in sentiment, the political journals re
spectful and moderate iu censure and criticism,
the commerical papers truthful and since rely
devoted to the welfare of the mercantile class
es, the newspapers careful in their selections,
diltent in pursuit of news, scrupulous about
reprinting trash and the production of what is
smrrilous and indeceut and careful at all times
in the choice of language, and if he find,,
moreover, that the journals of a city are at all
t*.mes courteous in their tone and words to
wards each other, he will conclude that he is
in a city made up of ladies and gentlemen, peo
ple of good taste, fine preceptions, sound prin
ciples and good manners. But if, on the con
trary, he finds the • religious papers carping,
censorious, spiteful and abusive each towards
all other sects than the one which it represents ;
if he finds the o. gnus of political parties filled
with hard language each toward the opposirg
pr.ry, indiscriminate in its use of abusive
epithets, diligent it i.s search after libelous
ed!ect".ves, cons:o - tt in imputing base motives,
always putting the worst construction upon
every act and speech of the candidate or office
holders of the rival party, and always usieg
language in formal essays which would not be
tolerated in a lady's parlor; and if he finds
drily in the columns of the papers devoted to
news, to commerce and to business masses of
vapid trash, obscene jests and allusions, details
of filthy criminal trials and slanderous com
munications, and if he sees that each journal
was perpeinally - finding fault with rod trying
'to damage all the others he would cm L,i , tly
conclude that he had fallen into a neat of en , -
fin v tinu of thieves end bleekgua •ds, a ci
destitute of honorable and high minded men
and women. "By their .ruil,3 shall ye know

WHAT LEGS CAN DO ; Olt HOW A
DETECTIVE WAS FOILED.—Last Saturday morning,
between the hours of 7 and 8 o'clock, a gentleman
entered the Barber Shop under theJacitson house,
and was followed by the Barber, who continence('
pulling at his coat for the purpose of attending to
the wants of hir supposed custeiner. Ile was cool
ly informed that his visitor did not wont any ton
sorial or other operation, but he wanted a quiet
word with him and he was blandly invited up
stairs its the hotel to receive it. The Barber was
not a little agitated at this singular request, but
he suppressed his agitation as much as possible,
and accompanied hint into- the Jackson House.
What occurred at the interview "deponent milk
not," but a few minutes later the Barber was seen
descending into the street at a Irmo that would
have thrown even the Fast Line into the shade,
with the gentleman, who was no other than a
Philadelphia Detective, hard upon him. Into Mr.
Africa's Confectionery dashed the Barber, back
through the first room, into and through the sec
ond, the window was open and through the win
dow he went, pell-mell, helter-skelter, in less time
than you could say "Jack Robinson." 'The De
tective halted, wheeled and ran around Broad
Top Corner, in time to see the Barber go up the
Canal at better speed than is made by fearless nav
igators of that raging highway. Tho Detective
began to yell at the top of his leng,s "Stop thief I"
"stop thief !' but the Barber didn't stop, nor did
anybody stop him. The Broad Top train had just
left thedepot and was moving off gently towards
the bridge. The Barber saw his opportunity,
doubled his speed, seized the platform and clam
bered up and waved a gentle adieu to his bungling
pursuer. It is said that the Detective was very
much disgusted with -the whole affair and when
the 8.33 train came down ha left fur the east. It
is reported that there is a wonma in the ease.
.14ZAIL u:: THE ADAMS EXIatESS OF
FICE.-On Saturday night last, some unanown
parties forced open the front door of the Al
- Express office, in this place, with Li chisel
and-enttred. They blew up the safe but did
not succeed in getting anything of value. The
agent, Mr. K. M. King, had taken all the funds
out of it during the evening before a ii pd secu
red them elsewhere, for which he is entitled to
great credit, as a set of expert burglars, as
these were, would go through a safe like the
one in question in less than ten minutes. In
fact it was scarcely- an obstacle. They first
sought an entrance from the rear of the build
ing, but an inside shutter prevented ingress
from that point. While attempting to effect
an entrance here they threw down a door lean
ing up against a fence on an adjoining build
ing which was distinctly heard by D. Caldwell,
Esq. The chisel with which they pried open
the door was found in Mr. McMurtrie's yard,
which, when fitted to the marks, corresponded
exactly. A large sledge, such as are used by
blacksmiths, was left in the office, with . which
they intended to demolish the safe provided it
did not yield to powder, but it was entirely
uunteessary in this instance. The blast was
made under cover of a passing train of cars in
all probability. During Saturday Mr. King had
54,000 on hand, but they did not get a single
dollar of it.
MORRISON'S COVE RAILROAD.—We
learn from Mr. Wilson that his surveys of Mor
rison's Cove have been completed, and a line
been determined upon past Martinsburg to the
ore beds in Leather Cracker Cove. The road.
from Hollidaysburg to McKee's Gap, 8 miles,
is finished and in running order. It turns the
end of the mountain at Itollidayshurg, crosses
the Juniata river below the reservoir, and en
ters the gap near water level. From this point
to Leather Cracker measures 13 miles, with a
branch, half a tang long, to Martinsburg. Mr.
Wilson's original line intended McKee's Gap
at a much higher level, in order subsequently
to gain grade in ascending the ravine of Plum
Creek; and it then kept around the flank of
the Loop mountain, to north and east of Mar
tinsburg, above the village, so as to have a
free ruu along the central ridge of the valley,
southward to the gap of Yellow creek, and so
to Broad Top. But local interest, especially
those connected with the large deposits of ore
at Bloomfield Furnace, demanded a location
more to the west, invo!ving heavier grades.
The line settled, therefore, leaves Plum Creek,
after getting through McKee's Gap, and keeps
up Rock Run, passing by Martinsburg below
and west cf the village. The I 3 miles of loca
ted line are all under contract, and the ores
of Leather Cracker Cove will probably be seen
passing llolliday.iburg, on their way to the
Cambria Iron Company's furnaces next fall.—

TIIE REASON IVIIY.—The immediate
cause of premature fading or blanching isf the
hair is an obstruction of the oil vessels which
afford the coloring matter. The remote cause
may be general ill health, trouble of mind, etc-
Hence, in order to restore its natural color and
beauty the oil vessels must be restored to
their normal condition. It is on this principal
that NATT'RE'S HAIR RESTORATIVE is com
pounded, and it has proved a complete suc
cess, wherever faithfully applied. It is not
a poisonous dye, consequently the effect is
gradual, and in severe cases two or three bot_
ties are necessary to produce the desired 're
sult. See advertisement.

Mr. W. 13. White, of Penn township, was at

trade, and after unsuccessful attempts to get
possession of the horse his anger got the bet
