NORMAL ScncoL.The Huntingdon County
Normal School, located at Alexandria, Pa.,
closed its second annual term on Tuesday,
August 18, 1871.
There was about fifty students in attendance
during the term, most of whom intend to teach
in the county, the coining winter.
We have already seen sufficient results to
cause no to feel well satisfied with our sum
user's work, and to warrant the assertion that
the school has been a success.
In commendation of our students, we arc
glad to say that through their careful demean.
or and their courteous conduct towards the
citizens of Alexandria, they have now a high
moral reputation in the community; and by
their strict obedience to the regulations of the
school and their willingness at all times to
perform the duties assigned them, they have
secured our highest esteem and warmest
The closing exercises of the school took
place on Friday evening at 8 o'clock.
We were glad to have so many of our friends
from the borough and vicinity with us to wit
ness the exercises, and especially gratified
with the presence of Prof. Gast, of Franklin
and Marshall College, Lancaster, Pa.
The following is the programme: Prayer,
by Prof. Gast, Lancaster, Pa.; Salutatory Es
say, "The Head and the Heart," Miss Beckie
Patterson, Alexandria ; Recitation, "Green Ap
ples," Mr. S. B. Hall, Alexandria; Eulogy,
"John Quincy Adams," Mr.Wm.Crowel, Birm
ingham, Pa.; Referred Questions, "which is
the greater invention, the Steam Engine or
the Sewing Machine ?"
The question was answered first by Mr. P.
H. Bridenbaugh, of Arch Springs, Blair Co.,
who argued that the "Steam Engine" is the
greater invention.
He was followed by Mr. D. 11. Knode, of
Alexandria, who presented the c:aims of the
"Sewing Machine."
Declamation, "Voice of the Dead," Mr. J.
W. McMahan, Neffs Mills, Pa.; Referred Ques
tions, "which, has the greater curiosity, Man
or Woman r
Mr. J. B. Cutshall, of Dublin Mills, Fulton
Co , Pa., opened the dies scion with a humor
ous argument in favor of the greater curiosi
ty of "Man."
His opponent was Mr. W. Scott Wilson, of
Shavers Creek, Pa.
Oration, "Our Nation's Progress," Mr. S. H.
Isenberg, McConnellstown, Pa.; Recitation,
"The Drowned Child," Miss Rattle McDivitt,
Alexandria '
Pa.; Valedictory Oration, "The
Levelers of Society," Mr. N. P. Corbin, Hunt
ingdon, Pa.
The above persons who represented the
school in the closing exercises were selected
partly because of scholarly ability and liters
ry acquirements, and partly because by their
deportment they had won the Confidence and
merited the approbation of the authorities of
the school. . _
Without commenting on each exercise, I
simply remark that all did exceedingly well for
the amount of culture they have had and the
length of time allowed them to make prpara
The closing remarks to the school was made
by Mr. S. I'. McDivitt. In an address which I
will not mar by epitomizing, he argued the
importance of having pure and noble ideals of
character as models for imitation, and of
striving earnestly to reach these ideals.
• '•
We never rise higherthan our aspirations
and hence the necessity of aiming high if we
would have our lives result in anything good,
noble or good.
Ile aimed also to impress upon teachers the
nobility of their work, cause them to properly
appreciate its claims and responsibilities, and
create in them a desire to attain higher litera
ray and professional qualifications.
The exercises were then - closed with the
benediction, by Prof. Gast.

—The following notes of places in this county
we cut from the Harrisburg Patriot :
is a little village on the Pennsylvania railroad,
in the Huntingdon county, right in among the
big hills, with three or four stores, a mill and
one hotel. Spruce Creek runs through it,
ever which you may pass without toll. Little
regularity is observed in the streets, and the
architecture of the houses is not remarkable
for great beauty. The church is only a small
and plain structure, without ornament, but is
used by an honest and devout christian peo
ple. From the slight opportunities afforded
us for forming acquaintances we should judge
that the people are a hardy and happy class
who did not envy their neighbors, nor strive
after positions they cannot reach. A very
flue religious influence is felt antoug them,
and a good division of the Sons Temper
ance is doing its work well.
A ride of about four miles "up the valley
by the side of the • little babbling brook,"
brings you to
This is a mere hamlet, but is romantic in ap
pearance, and the inhabitants are kind and
intelligent. A couple of churches, a few shops
of various kinds, two stores of small dimen
sions, and a few unpretending dwellings coin
prise the buildings of the place. They have
no hotel, as no ardent spirits can be sold in
the town, and temperance hotels are not very
profitable, the morals of the people are good,
and like other places of the same kind, there
is a spirit of contentment and happiness
among them beautiful to behold. Here a di•
vision of Sons of Temperance is also at work,
and doing the preventive office of the reform.
A very remarkable cave is near this place, but
the weather was too oppressive to invite an
examination of its peculiarities. We were
struck with the beauty of the scenery around,
and the healthfulness of the inhabitants. Fur
naces and kindred establishments are frequent
among the bills along the valley of the Spruce
Creek. _ _
It is good to breathe the pure are and drink
the clear water of these mountain towns, and
we were not anxious to see the dirty hack and
lean horses coming to take us away.
forty-five or fifty years ago, there was a camp
meeting held at what is now called the Old
Taylor Camp Ground, near Cassville, this
county. During the progress of this meeting,
a colored woman came to Cassville, and was
captured by a constable of the place, who
supposed her to be a runaway slave, and that
be might make some money in the operation.
On Sabbath, before going to camp, he confined
his prisoner in the garret of an did house near
where Isaac Curfman now lives, in Trough
Creek Valley, and also near to Cassville. But
when he returned to sec hisprisoner, he was
horror stricken to find that she had hanged
herself to a beam of the rafters. This news
was soon conveyed to the campmeeting, and
hundreds went to see the horrible sight. An
old gentleman that witnessed the scene, says
that they bared her shoulders and breast, and
he feels satisfied that he could not have put
the point of his finger on her breast or
shoulders without putting it on a scar from
the whip. She proved to be a Virginia slave
and chose rather to take her own life than be
taken back to cruel bondage. Her master
pursued her as far as Three Springs. There
he heard of her death andturned back, fear
ing no doubt, if he went on he might have to
be at the expense of burying her. This is what
slavery was fifty years ago.
learn that the public house kept by A. Leisher,
in Hollidaysburg, was entered about two
o'clock last Wednesday Morning by a burg
lar, and robbed of a pair of pants, twenty dol
lars in money, a gold watch, and several other
articles. By some means Mr. Leisher was
aroused and gave chase, and overtaking the
thief a tussle ensued. Mr. L., being struck on
the head with a jimmy returned the compli
ment by sending a bullet through the rascal's
shoulder from his pistol, when, after .another
tussle, assistance coming up, he was secured
and lodged in jail. The watch was secured
But the pants containing the $2O in a purse
was not—which leads to the belief that there
was an accomplice in the job and that they
were thrown out of the window to him.—Al
toona Tribune.
ON Satuaday week the barn of James
H. Lyons, near New Enterprise, Bedford coun
ty, was struck by lightning and burned to the
ground. Mr. Lyons is an industrious colored
man, and the loss falls heavily upon him. We
are glad to know that the people of Morrison's
Cove are showing their sympathy for their
neighbor, a meeting having been held, on
Tuesday evening following, and $llOO raised
to assist him in rebuilding. Such actions are
characteristic of the people of Morrison's
A Mosr disgraceful scene occurred on
the express train of the 11. & 13. R. It. on Sat
urday night last. At Saxton three or four
drunken rowdies got aboard the train and at
once became boisterous to the great terror of
several ladies, and the annoyance of the pas
sengers generally. The appearance of the
gentlemanly condudtor, Mr. John Rohm, we
supposed would at once quiet these reckless
specimens of humanity, but not so, they con
tinued their noise and cursing. When remon
strated with by Mr. Rohm two of them abused
him by words and blows till "forbearance
ceased to be a virtue" when he rang the bell,
summoned his engineer and fireman, (there
being no brakeman nor baggage master on
the train), who seized the rowdies and ejected
them from the car. It was only after the
grosest insults that these cowardly villains
were thus dealt with. We hope to see the
officers ofjustice on their track and hear of
them receiving the highest penalty of the
law. Ought there not be a law prohibiting
drunken men from riding on public convey
ances ?
ADVERTISING.—There is a class of per
sons who imagine they are doing very judi
ciously by advertising through the medium of
circulars. They scatter a few thousand
through the city, announcing their business,
and await the result, fully convinced that in
so doing they have taken all necessary prelim
inaries to success. Various circulars are al
most daily to be found on the doorsteps and
in the entry-ways of respectable houses. Their
fate is, generally, that they are either thrown
into the street by the indignant servant girl
who answers the bell, or summarily pitched
aside by the man of the house who finds
them when he returns house, and who desires
no suggestions of new methods of lightening
his purse. The use of circulars may, in certain
limited cases, answer every purpose; but the
vast majority of those who have made money
by advertising have found that the columns of
a newspaper are the best and surest, and in
the end the cheapest, medium of communica
tion between the business world and the pub
FIRE.—The dwelling house of Daniel
Magahen, of MeConnellstown, this county, took
fire, it is supposed, from the spark of an oil
lamp, and burned to the ground about eight
o'clock on last Sunday evening. A large por
tion of the furniture and other valuables were
consumed. There was no insurance. 31r.Maga
hen is a laboring man, and by this severe loss
is left without the means to replace his house.
TITRAL SOCIETY.-The Third Annual Exhibition

ciation), will be held at the City of Altoona on
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday,
September 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 1871. The
grounds are the largest and most complete, and
the driving course equal to.the best, in the
State. The very liberal premiums offered by
the Managers must command the attention
and attendance of all parties rearing good
stock, or interested in agricultural and other
inventions. The following summary of pre
miums will convey an idea of their magnitude:

one of $500; one of s2so—the whole making
over $6,000 in premiums for the present sea-
