On last Wednesday afternoon, at 2 o'clock,
or thereabouts, Dr. Brumbaugh pulled up the
straps that control "Nellie," bid the boy to
tell those who might want physic in his ab
sence, that be would supply them with less.
"bitter pills" on his return, and we dashed down
Sixth to Hill street, and up Hill to Allegheny,
across the most miserable railroad crossing
in America, at S. E. Henry & Co's store, through
Portstown, across the bridge, up the river,
through Smithfield and out the turnpike in
the direction of Alexandria. The Sun was
tcnsly hot and we were dressed as if we in
tended to accompany Capt. Hall on his Artie
bound voyage. We fairly wilted! The Doc
tor's umbrella was just the thing and we pro
tected ourselves from the scorching heat as
best we could. A trotting buggy may be a
good thing for a horse but it is very little pro
tection to a man.
We passed the Kennedy and Bryan farms,
looking cheerful, but the road was most pro
vokingly rough. We reached the sheltering
pines of "Warrior Ridge," but "Old Sol" occa
sionally got a thrust at us and we longed for
a glass, only a glass, of Summer's ice-cold
lemonade, the best in Pennsylvania. Try it.
A mile or two out the roughness of the road
passed away, and it became as smooth as a
We reached the celebrated 'Pulpit Rocks" and
we would have given a kingdom to have
scrambled up to their respective summits,
but the Sun was too hot. Every fellow with
a name in the county appeared to have been
there before us and carved it or daubed it
there on those beautiful curiosities. We in
tend to get to the top of those old "felleys"
some time or other, and, when we do, we will
see what is to be seen. We quietly rolled on
down the ridge; the road was splendid; the
green foliage and the thick underbrush were
charming. At last the Valley of the Little
Juniata lay beneath our feet and we rapidly
descended into it, crossed the stream, on the
old wooden bridge, and sped forward towards
Hatfields' iron works. The Valley reminded
us very much of Morrison's Cove. The land
appears to be equally fertile and produces the
heaviest crops. Off to the left was the Fur
nace and Forge and the many tenement houses
for the numerous hands employed. On the
right was a colliery where a large quantity
of wood was being burnt into charcoal, and
still further on was the spacious mansion of
Mr. Hatfield, with its broad yard filled with
many trees. Here we crossed the canal and
before entering Alexandria re-crossed it.
As we approached the river we were astonish.
ed to see that its waters were quite green. We
called the attention of the Doctor to the fact,
who stated that his attention had been pre
viously called to the matter, and that there
was more decayed vegetable matter in the
river this season than there had been for many
years. That the noxious vapors which
arise even now, along it, on a still night,
are almost suffocating. The river is full of
moss which throws off a very offensive smell.
If we are not favored with heavy rains to clean
it out the communities along its banks will
suffer fearfully the coming autumn.
We dashed into Alexandria, a quiet moral
village, which, like most of towns off of the
line of railroad, does not exhibit very much
go-aheadativeness. We stopped at the "Walk
er House," kept by our mutual friend, J. M .
Piper, Esq., and found that that gentleman
was up the river at "Camp Spangler." We
pulled up the strings again and struck out
for camp. "Camp Spangler" was about a mile
out of town. We met Piper on the way up
and made him turn in with us. A short dis
tance on our left we recognized the Stars and
Stripes, floating in the breeze and there the
broad ensign of the Club lettered thus : "Jo.
niata Club, 1869."
We left the turnpike, passed through a
beautiful grove, in which a number of the
Club were playing croquet, and approached
the river bank, where we reined up and took the
"Club's" splendid little boat and passed "over
on the other side." We ascended the bluff
on the opposite side, and on a shelf, a small
table at the foot of the mountain, known as
old Indian Camp, we found "Camp Spangler."
Stewart and several others were lounging in
hammocks, tied up to trees, trying to sleep;
the Captain, the immortal Spangler, and
Bowen, the Lieutenant, and others with the
artist, had scaled the mountain to photog,raph
the Valley. Stewart took us in. He found
plenty of lemons and ice and applied them to us
vigorously. They had a cooling effect. Then
he showed us their great tent, a most capital
arrangement, their sleeping apartment, their
store-room, their cellar, their kitchen, their
table, their lemons and ice mixed with claret,
their amusements, their organ, Capt. Spang
ler's battery, and everything appeared to be
a "reel convanience " At this point other
visitors were announced, Col. G. Dorsey
Green, with his wife, sister and several little
folks were ushered beneath the shade. Then
came Robert 11. Jacob, and Mrs. Jacob, of
Huntingdon, and Miss Woods, of Lewistown,
and then, just is the niche of time, returned
the Captain, who knew everybody in a m -
ment, and who talked, and jested, and said
pleasant things of his companions, who in
turn endeavored to make the Captain the
butt of their jests, but they general recoiled,
and in time, they found the laugh at their own
expense. At last the hour came to leave, and we
were ferried keross the river on a scow and bid
ding all hands good-bye, we started for Water
street. The Juniata. Club consists of about
thirty Philadelphia gentlemen, who organized
it in the year 1869 and who camp out annually
dcring the month of July. They have had
a very pleasant time while encamped at "Camp
Spangler." Souse five or six of their number
have been obliged to return home on account
of sickness, which it is supposed, was brought
about, in a great measure, by the condition of
the river. They broke camp on Friday eve
ning last and returned to Philadelphia by the
After leaving Camp, we drove up the road
toward Waterstreet and admired the magnifi
cent scenery along the river. It is truly
-grand I From Waterstreet we returned to
Alexandria, took an excellent supper at the
"Walker House," and in the cool of the eve..
ning drove back to Huntingdon. The trip
was a very pleasant one and we enjoyed it
BEDFORD AND BRIDGEPORT RAILROAD.
—So much has been said in regard to running
through to Bedford, by the first of August,
that the mind of the pubdc will be disturbed,
no doubt, to learn that there is no prospect of
getting through on cars to that point before
the 25th of August, or Ist of September at
fartherst, and then we want a regular old
jubilee. We expect our friend McKillips to
furnish cars enough to take half of Hunting
don to that quiet old town, up the Raystown
Branch, and we will waken her up 1 We expect
three or four bands, two or three military com
panies, and great numbers of civilians to form
in procession, with Ben Garretson and Sam
Barclay, and one of each of their old coaches
at their head, march all over the old place,
and bring up at the Poor House cemetery and
there bury Garrettson, Barclay and their old
coaches in one common grave,. the Bands

na officiating. Hurry up the cakes, we are
coming 1 Bedford must wake up
ON Tuesday next, August Bth, a con
vention of the Ruling Elders of the churches,
which belong to the Presbytery of Hunting
don, will be held in the Presbyterian church

ALMOST A SUICIDE, OR WHAT “DUTCH
JAKS" DlD.—West Huntingdon, or" New Town,'•
is a village of "magnificent distances," where
in are to be found splendid residences, noble
manufactories, a thrifty population, good hus
bands and clever wives, with here and there a
rare exception. And it is of one of the exceptions
we desire to speak. Among the thrifty den
izens of that enterprising locality, away up at
seventeenth or eighteenth street, lives a teuton,
who is well known throughout the immediate
neighborhood as "Dutch Jake." Jake is not
a bad fellow in many ways, but sometimes his
ways are a little mysterious. Jake has a wife,
a very good, industrious, honest woman, and
like many another man, Jake believes he owns
his good wife, body, soul and-bustle, and when
he says "bark I" he thinks she must "bow,
wow." This is the season for gathering ber
ries, and good women, who can, without cost,
at only the expense of time, assist in adding
to the make-up of the table, by a few hours
labor in searching fences and woods, do so.
Well, Jake's wife, like many another woman,
went for berries, we presume, and he objected
to Mrs. Jake going, but Mrs. Jake took her
own course like other women do and—went.
Well, after the return Jake came home mad,
furious,aud he went for his "frau" in a way
that was not "childlike and bland." He pum
melled her, he mauled her, he punched her
head, he switched her until his Dutch was up I
Then he took the pan or bucket of berries and
smashed the pan, or bucket, and made jelley or
jam out of the berries in a way out of the
usual manner. He played smash until there
wasn't a berry to smash! Then he was re
lieved I But with the relict came conscious
ness of having done wrong, and Jake began to
feel bad I What was he to do? Shoot him
self of course I And Jake determined to do
it. In the presence of his well used-up wife,
he took up his baby, and with tears coursing
'down his cheeks as large as horse chestnuts,
he kissed it a hundred sad farewells, and seiz
ing his musket, repaired to the attic, and in a
few minutes there was a loud report, which
startled the good citizens of the vicinity, but
on inquiry it was ascertained that "Dutch
Jake" hadgone up stairs to shoot himself, and
as everybody concluded that was about the
most sensible thing that he had ever attempted
in his life, they gave themselves no concern
about it. Jake first dodged carefully up to
one narrow window, then to another and
peered out to see whether anybody was coming,
but no one came, and Jake became disgusted
with the whole suicide business and swears
most heartily now that it is a humbug.
CASSVILLE SOLDIERS' ORPHAN SCHOOL.
—lt was my pleasure to attend the sixth an
nual examination at the Soldiers' Orphan
School at Cassville. The examination began
in the morning at nine o'clock at which hour
the children assembled in their usually neat
appearance. Too much cannot be said in
praise of the decorutn which the children ob
served during the examination, and of the or
der and system with which everything was
conducted. The pupils all acquitted them
selves nobly, proving that they had been well
drilled, and had learned thoroughly - that which
It is seldom that children of the same age
are met anywhere who are so far advanced in
the various branches of studies pursued.
It was apparent that no particular branches
of study was made a hobby, as is too ofteti
done in our schools, but all received due at
In the evening the visitors assembled in the
parlor and were entertained with a speech on
the "Rocky Mountains," by Prof. A. L. Guss,
when he exhibited some my fine specimens
collected from the different mines on his late
tour to the Rocky Mountains. We then pro
ceeded to the study hall where we were enter
tained with declamations, essays and music
by the children. The exercises were closed
with short, pithy speeches by a number of the
visitors, expressing their gratification with all
they had seen and heard. G. W. s.
UNION SABBATH SCHOOL CELEBRA
TION.—The Sabbath Schools composed of the
Valley, the Ridge and the Loop schools will
hold a Union Celebration, on Saturday, the
sth day of August, 1871, in Collins Hamer's
woods near the Loop school house, in Porter
township. The following persons will ad
dress the children : Rev. Mr. Peters, Rev. M.
L. Smith, Rev. J. W. Plannett, Hon. R. Milton
Speer and Miles Zentmyer, Esq. The Silver
Cornet Band, of Huntingdon, will discourse
soul stiring music on the occasion. A cordial
invitation is extended to all who take an in
terest and who are workers in the cause. By
order of the Committee of Arrangements.
A SUBSTANTIAL IMPROVEMENT.—The
municipal authorities have been erecting a
very substantial bridge over Muddy Run, on
Hill street, near the late residence of Hon. A.
P. Wilson, 48 feet long and 10 feet high, with
a span of 60 feet. The masonry is pronounced
a most splendid piece of workmanship by the
best of judges. George W. McEldowney, of
Bedford county, was the sub-contractor, and
he deserves much credit for the superiority of
the job and the short space of time employed
in completing it, which was at the rate of
thirty days for one hand. This improvement
was much needed and will add very much to
the safety of travel in that locality.
Mr. Editor.—You will please let me know
whether Mr. J. E. Smacker has given notice
that the accounts will be confirmed at next
Court. I have been examining the JOURNAL
closely for two or three weeks and I cannot
find any notice. There are no other Hunting
don papers taken just here, but at least eight
or ten copies of the JOURNAL. I have filed my
account, and I want to have it confirmed, be.
cause lam tired of it. Please let me know by
return of mail.
[We respectfully refer S- to Mr. Smuck
er who can tell all about it. As far as the
JOURNAL is aware he has not advertised.]
BARN BURNED.—On last Friday night;
the 28th ult., the barn, with all its contents,
valued at $lOOO, of Matthew Hamilton, of
Hopewell township, this county, was burned
to the ground. A short time ago, Levi Evens,
Esq., of Coalmont, agent for the Juniata Val
ley Fire Insurance Company of this place,
took a risk of $lOOO upon the property and
the Company, will, consequently, have to pay
up $666. The fire was the dastardly work of
an incendiary. He is supposed to be known.
LITERARY NOTICES. Our Young
Folks, for August, is at hand, and a clever

Le Bon Ton.—We have received from Mr. S.
T. Taylor, 391 Canal street, New York, the
August number ofLe Bon Ton,the great French
Fashion journal. It is prepared in the highest
style of art and has been accepted, for many

est.. It is published bb 11. 8. Menamin, Phila
delphia, at $1 00 per year.
WE last week published the audited
school accounts of ➢it. Union Borough, which
must be a great satisfaction to every taxpayer
in that place. The Auditors, Messrs. Appleby
and Blair, deserve great credit. Under the
existing laws both school and township ac
counts must be audited. A fine of $5O is
imposed upon town clerks fora neglect of this
duty by a late act.
ON next Friday, August 4th, the "Steel
property" is to be sold at Sheriff's sale. Good
locations on Hill street are getting scarce, at
any price, so that any one wanting one of
the choicest situations in Huntingdon, for a
residence or for business, would do well to be
on hand at this sale. We are assured by the
attorneys that there will be sold a full and
Ma. J. C. BLAIR, of Huntingdon, has
imported directly from the manufacturers, in
England, a large quantity of the Falcon Steel

hope that his enterprise will be fully appre

As an index to whatever the Bible contains
or teaches on any subject, it is invaluable.
Each chapter or section being a distinct and
separate subject. It cannot fail of creating an
interest in Bible reading in every family that
is fortunate enough to obtain a copy. To the
minister it will often throw more light upon
his chosen topic than a whole days' search
could secure. It has also Cruden's complete
concordance pronouncing and interpreting

nations, a history of-the Bible, family record,.

inestimable value. We append the following
Rev. M. W. Jacobus, D. D. Professors of
Biblical Literature and Theology, Allegheny
City, Pa., says Talbot's Analysis was good,
West made it better and Dr. Hitchcock, in this
fine volume has made it best. Nothing in this
way is left to be desired. It will be a treasure
to any household.
From Rev. Geo. F. Wisnell, D. D., Pastor of
Green Hill Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia,
Pa.: "Any book that fadilitates and incites to
the study and critical knowledge of the Holy
Scriptures is a positive good in the world.—
Hitchcock's Analysis is such a book. I shall
count it a good work if in any way I can pro
mote the circulation of such a valuable book
among the families of our land."
Rev. Geo. D. Boarmau, D. D., Pastor of
First Baptist Church, Philadelphia, says in his
concluding remarks "I counsel every one,
who wishes to use the Bible most advantage
ously, to purchase this volume."
Rev. C. F. Shafer, Evangelical Lutheran,
Philadelphia ' says : "The interest of our holy
religion will be greatly promoted by au exten
sive circulation of this precious book."
Having examined, with some care, Prof.
Hitchcock's Analysis of the Bible, I have no
hesitation in recommending it as a valuable
aid to the study of the Sacred Scriptures.—
Those who purchase and peruse it will, I think,
never regret the money and time thus expend
ed. G. W. ZAHNISER,
Pastor Presbyterian Church,
July 31, 1871.
The above recommendation of Hitchcock's
Analysis of the Bible I heartily endorse, and
am free to say that the expense incurred by
the purchase will never be regretted.
L. D. HTECRLE,
Pastor of Reformed Lutheran Church,
To all who wish, with the least labor and
with the greatest possible dispatch, to know
