TIIE JOORNAL FOR 1872!
A Rare Chance to Secure the Leading
Literature of the Day !
CHEAPNESS COMBINED IVITH SUBSTANTIALITY I
Every head of a family, in the country, should
subscribe and pay for his county paper. He
that attempts to raise a family without giving
it the advantage of a newspaper, in this en
lightened and christian age, is criminally neg
ligent. We think that every man, without
exception, raising a family, should spend from
FIVE dollars to TWENTY-FIVE dollars a year,
according to his means, for this kind of edu
cation, and we hope to live to see the day
when there will not be an exception to this
rule in Huntingdon county.
We want every body in the county to take
the downier, we don't care what party you
belong to—Republican, Democrat or Temper
ance man. If you are a Republican, we are
with yon heart and soul; if a Democrat, you
ought to know what we have to say about
you, so that you can act and vote intelligently,
and if you are a temperance man, we assure
you that no one will administer severer blows
upon the whiskey business than the JOURNAL
will, and if the whiskey men don't like it, why
let them do as they do with whiskey that is
distasteful, take the less of it. We believe
newspapers, like preachers and school teach
ers, should be on the side of morality and good
order. But the .Tounset will uphold only that
which we, in our humble judgment, think to
be right, regardless of consequences,
The development of the county, in every re
spect, will be its constant and undeviating aim,
and in this respect it will be to every man's
interest to subscribe for it. We want to build
up Manufactures, Mechanics and the Arts on
every hand, and by subscribing for the Jona-
Sat you assist and encourage us in our design.
The next year will be an eventful one; a
President, Vice President, Governor and Con
gress are to be elected and a Constitutional Con
ventiou will be 'selected to remodel the Con
stitution of the State. We have outgrown the
old one, and if you want to keep posted you
must have the papers, 'Take the JOURNAL first,
and if you won't take it, in the name of intel
ligence, take some other one, but don't be
without the news.
For the purpose of distributing good Litera
ture, in connection with the Jotranet, which
we think good enough of itself, we have ar
ranged to furnish the following-named leading
periodicals, jointly for the remarkably low
price stated below •

any of our subscribers, who hare paid up ,
desire to take advantage of these rates and

AN EARNEST WORD TO THOSE
OF OUR SUBSCRIBERS WHO
HAVE FAILED TO PAY U?.
Those Who Owe us Nothing Need not
Read This—lt is not Intended for
ire hope, however, that every subscri
ber, who has not settled with us, will read
what follows and take advantage of the
suggestions: We do not desire to dun you,
and yet, for the life of us, we do not see
how we can avoid it. You fail to pay and
we need our money badly. If there were
only one, or two, or a dozen, or even a
hundred of you, we might very readily
stand it, but when you are told that out of
the 1600 bona fide subscribers on our list,
not one-half of the number have paid up
for the year 1871, you begin to see that it
figures up an aggregate that will run our
establishment four or five months. But
independent of the inconvenience we BUS
tain, in not having our money and in being
obliged to make our creditors wait, it is
only adding additional expense upon you.
And here we desire to say that there is no
man in Huntingdon county so poor that
he cannot take and pay two dollars a year
for his county paper. Where is the man,
we ask, who cannot save one dollar, in six
months, for a newspaper ? And as to the
relative influence of the newspaper, it is
next to the Bible; the latter teaches the
way to Heaven, while the former teaches
the way of the World, and no one can ex
pect to make much headway, either here
or hereafter, without a pretty accurate
knowledge of both. Bat this is a digres
sion. The rich man just as frequently
fails to pay as the poor man. Why ? Be
cause heconsiders two dollars a mere trifle,
and, we suppose, thinks we regard it in
the same light. We might were it not for
the frequent duns that are thrust at us.—
But remember the ocean is made up of
drops of water and the desert of mere tiny
grains of sand. But outside of our needy
circumstances we would like to get our
subscription business to as near a cash ha.
sis as possible. We can't have a very good
opinion of the subscriber who allows his
subscription to run for years without ma
king an effort to pay up, and before any 4f
our subscribers have time to run up bills
we want them to pay and ke.•p paid up.
Now, then, if any of our sub,eribais.
who are in arrears for 1871, will come for
ward and pay us FOUR dollars, at any
time up to November Court, we will give
them a receipt for this and the next year.
or, in other words, we will receive payment
at the rate of two dollars per year. Don't
fail to avail yourselves of this proposition.
AN EDITORIAL RAMBLE
Newspaper men, like the generality of
other people, require recreationa resting
or breathing spell, yet, from year to year,
they seldOm have a day to themselves which
they can call their own. The lion. Horace
Greeley, sonic years ago, wrote that he had
desired to take a fishing excursion for
twelve successive years, and up to the time
of writing, he had never found sufficient
leisure. This is a common experience.
There is truly no business more exacting.
The same amount of work has to be done
day in and day out, year after• year, and
if the paper does not come up to expecta
tions, there is not only one or twc to com
plain, but hundreds and thousands. But
the campaign being over, and feeling re
markably good on the strength of the re
sult, we determined to forsake our post
and spend a day or two looking over the
region developed by the Pittsburgh,Wash
ington and Baltimore railroad. For the
purpise of carrying out this design, we
stepped on board the Fast Line, on last
Saturday evening, a week ago, at 7:40
o'clock, with valise in hand, and headed
for the "Smoky City." This is the crack
train of the Central, and it is usually
crowded to excess, but on this occasion it
was very thinly peopled, and we had the
satisfaction of a seat to ourself.
The Fast Line is a wonderful institu
tion. It ignores all the small towns along
the way, such as Lancaster, Middletown
Lewistown, Johnstown and Greensburg.
but very properly stops at Hunting
don. it hurls the traveler forward at the
rate of forty miles an hour until h:s head
grows dizzy and his breakfast goes to grass,
or saute barren place along the way. The
ladies generally prepare themselves with
"smelling" bottles, which not unfrequently
smell strongly of brandy. We were aston
ished at the size of some of these bottles,
and the length of time the poor sufferers
would elevate them just below where the
nose ought to be.
The car was, in a manner, empty, and
amongst the few on board,we knew no one,
so that we stolidly resolved to "go it
alone." At Tyrone the train was stopped.

Hon. William A. Wallacc,who was return
ing from some Democratic mischief down
At Altoona we met our friend "Becky,"
of the Continental Life of Hartford, who,
semi-occasionally,corresponds for the Jona-
NAL, under the signature of "Richard,"
and "took him in." We felt considerable
relief with Berky in tow, or, perhaps, the
converse would express it better. He runs
about so much and sees so many things
that he has au eye single to any thing
that is likely to be both pleasing and prof
itable. He satisfied us, in less time than
it takes to tell it, that the car we were
in was not the one best adapted to a pleas
ant ride. Far from it. The why and the
wherefore we do pot now understand, but
so he made it to appear. He found just the
thing—two vacant seats—in the rear of a
pretty bright-eyed young lady. How
charming!! Of course there was no design
in this! Oh, no, Berky is insensible trithis
. Ave_ el,++.4. +.14
story after story, and commented upon a
thousand different things. Occasionally
the young lady would glance in our direc
tion—always at us, never at Berky—but
there was no way of breaking the ice. A
strapping big fellow went up to her and
told her something about the train stopping
off at Pittsburgh, and then took the advan
tage of this little ruse-to take a seat by her
side for half an hour. Berky grew stupidly
dull about this time. What was the cause
of it we have no idea. The big fellow had
to get off the train, and instantly Berky
was as "lively as a cricket." He wade
some excuse to get over on the seat next
'to the young lady and she, uodesigning
soul, ,sked him what time it was, and it
just ta,k him three-quarters of an hour to
explain. When he came back to us,who were
in a dreamy state, he said something about
sufferer by the Chicago fire, lived in New
York, was going to St. Louis, would have
to lay over in Pittsburgh. We couldn't see
through it owing to our being too sleepy,
we suppose. We fell asleep again and
when we awoke Becky was talking the
poor thing to death, and only cut it short
when the brakeman shouted "Pittsburgh!
change cars for San Francisco. Pekin and
Constantinople !" or something like it
These are way stations on some of the
branches of the Central.
We trudged up the mirky old city to
the pillutial residence of Berky, on Centre
Aveuus, and turned in for the night.
On Sunnay meriting the Smoke was less
dense than usual, but it was enough to
make it cheerless in the extreme, and we
felt as if we had leaped out of October into
December. We attended Christ's M. E.
Church and heard the Rev. H. W. Thomp
son, of Chicago, preach a rather ordinary
sermon. He was delegated by the Meth
odist Episcopal Churches, of that place, to
seek aid for them. A meeting, for the
purpose, was appointed for Tuesday night
following. Christ's Church is one of the
finest church edifices in Pittsburgh, and is
just a little notorious, at this time, owing
to the disreputable cmduct of its late pas
tor, Rev. Gray. This fellow is a disgrace
and a reproach to the ministerial profes
sion, Such men as he go farther towards
shaking the confidence of people in religion
than a thousand men of the world, and the
persons who try to shield men of this kind
stab the church to the very vitals. If men
will be libertines and debauchees let them
practice their baseness outside of the
church. There is no reason why to their
infamy they should add hypocrisy. We
do not speak thus because we claim to be
more holy or more moral than the gener
ality of men, no, we make no pretensions,
but we insist upon it that when men array
themselves in the garb of ministers that
they do live up to their professions. The
church is not the place to do the devil's
work, and the m;nister who attempts to do
it there is one of whoui satin should even
We visited a number of pl4ces of inter
est on .londay, in company with Berky
and Mr. Sansom, and among others was
the inclined railway from Birmingham to
the summit of Mount Washingon. The
ascent of the plane is by cars drawn by a
stationary engine at the summit. The in
clination is at an angle of forty-five degrees,
we suppose, and is truly frightful: Our
head grew dizzy, and had we not changed
our look downward to a. steady gazeahead,
we might have unceremoniously ejected our
dinner. From the summit of Mount Wash
ington there is a splendid view of Pitts
burg, provided the day is windy. When
we first reached the summit there was a
calm, and feint outlines of the city were
dimly visible through the deep hazy smoke.
It looked like an enchanted city, or as we
have good reason to believe an enchanted
city would look. In a tew minutes a strong
current of wind sprang up from the south
east and pushed the smoke up the Alle
gheny river, and Pittsburgh lay at our feet
sooty and in mourning. She is growing
very rapidly. We see vast changes in a
few years and hundreds of new buildings
arc now in the course of erection. The
population will almost, if not quite, double
in the next ten years. The cpening of the
Pittsburgh and Connellsville railroad has
given her a fresh impetus, and if the con
templated extension should prove a suc
cess, she will have advantages that should
make her the greatest city on the great
rivers of the Mississippi valley.
We spent Monday evening very pleas
antly at the residence of Mr. Samson' and
his lady, it being the fourth anniversary
of their nuptials. We wish them many
returns-of the day and hope we may nover
fail to be present on the successive ocea-
At half past six, on Tuesday morning,
we left the hotel de Berky and took the
Pittsburgh, Washington and Baltimore
train for Cumber hind, Berky accompanying
us to Mineral Point. The car was an ex
cellent one, and in a few minutes it was
crowded full. A great many mechanics
and laborers were leaving the city this
early for their employment from three to
eight miles out. The bed of the road lies
along the north side of the Monongahela
river and is principally made by a heavy
side cut. Much thrift and money have
built numerous splendid mansions and neat
cottagee,wherever sufficient eligible ground
could be procured, for miles out. Our train
was a remarkably slow one. It took us
from 7 o'clock A. at. to after 12 P. Al. to
reach Confluence, a distance of 86 miles.
We stopped and stopped until stopping
became an unmerciful bore. Every station
gave evidence of thrift and enterprise.
The scenery along the river was charming.
Hete and there we noticed a lam! number
of barges, loaded with coal, waiting for a
rise. Furnaces and other iron establish
ments were dotted along the route at in
tervals. The great Cmnellsville coal field
is on the right of the route, from which
vast quantities of coal are mined, high up
above the railroad and let down and load
ed into cars by means of inclined planes.
A vein of coal, from four to six feet, crops
out for miles between the shelving rocks.
Here, set in the cliff along the way, are
hundreds of coke ovens fed front this vein,
which turn out the celebrated Councils
ville coke which is shipped in all directions,
even as far west as Piitst Knob, Missouri,
for the manufacture of iron. We pass

last we reached Connellsville, the • ter-

min us of
looks just now as if it were only a sta
tion on a great trunk line. The going
forward of the road makes it of less impor
tance than it was a few months ago. From
here the toad follows the Youghiogheny—
we are not sure that we have the proper or
thography of tans word. It is,tve think, the
most outlandish word to spell in the Eng
lish language. Lippincott, we presume,
spells it correctly, but as we are not blessed
with a copy of their valuable work we are
in the darli=to Confluence. We took a
position on the rear platform of the ear, by
permission of the conductor, our old friend,
Gaither, well known to many of our read
ers as the eleven and gentLmany conduc
tor, of years ago, on the Broad Top. He
is a fine specimen of the good natured and
popular railroader. The scenery along the
river is truly picturesque and grand, moun
tains loom up on every hand in wild, fan
tastic shapes. The one in which the road
is suspended only yielding space enough
for the road bed by a huge trench cut for
cibly in its aid while in many places great
hungry rocks look down, a hunclreefeet,
frowning and threatening destruction for
the intrusion. The engineer hurled us
along through this weird gorge at a frigbt
ful speed, until our head grew dizzy, and
the gorgeous panorama before us swam,
twirled and eddied about us, until we were
obliged to seek safety in the ear. Here
and there little notches, cut by dame na
ture in the hills and mountains, have been
seized upon by aggressive grasping man
and babitationa have been erected and they
glory in being called stations. At Let we
reached Confluence—a paper town of same
considerable pretensions. Berky had en
tertained us for a whole hour in describing
the park and other attractions of the place.
He may be speculating in lots. Here we
ate a most capital substantial dinner, for
which we paid only fifty cents, aud we
warrant the landlord makes money. Here
we met Isaac Hughes, Esq., of Somerset.
Isaac is getting old. The next point of
note is the rival town of Ursine, Wm. J.
Bears' town. The rival feelings, we were
told, of the inhabitants of these latter places
*es bitter as clubs against spades.
Here the railroad leaves the Youghioghe
ny—that terrible name-,and cuts through
a summit to the bed of the Casselman riv
er, by what is called Brook tunnel. The
cars have only been running through it
for a few weeks. Previously a temporary
track had been constructed and used up a
very heavy grade to surmount the difficul
ty. The "scenery on the Casselman is vqry
fine. At Ursine we took on W. H. San
ner, Esq , member of the Assembly elect
from Somerset county. Mr. Sooner was
all smiles and bows. He evidently has not
taken off his electioneering habit yet. He
is a very excellent gentleman and makes a
capital member. At Mineral Point Berky
and a large number of others switched off
to Somerset. We parted with him with
reluctance, and we only wish now we had
gone along up to tile proud old town that
has just wakened up from a Rip Vau
At Dale City, the most named place in
the State, we took on our friend M. A.
Hunter, late of Riddlesburg, who is now
located at that place. He etecompanied
us to Cumberland. Dale City, which is
also called Meyers' Rao and Meyers' Mills,
is growing very rapidly. Here H. E.
Holsinger, late of Tyrone, has located his
printing office for the publication of the
Uhristian flompanion and the
Pious Youth. It is one of the best locations
that Mr. Holsinger could have selected
for this purpose. From Dale City to Sand
Patch tunnel the country is very heavy
and wild. We passed through the tunnel,
which is nearly • a mile in length, and
reached Will's Creek, the most turbulent
and treacherous stream in the State, and
followed it, crossing and re-crossing it some
six times, to Bridgeport. The latter place
begins to look up, but up to this time very
few improvemmts have been made. Here
the famous Bedford and Bridgeport road
puts in an appearance. It is located to the
Maryland line, which is but a short dis
tance from where it is contemplated to
connect it with the Cumberland and Penn
sylvania railroad. It runs parallel with
the Connellsville railroad for ten or twelve
miles. Thp part from Bridgeport to the
State line is under contract and baing
pushed rapidly. Messrs. Lowry, Williams
& Co., of Bloody Run, have the contract.
We found the Connellsville road a most
excellent one and we congratulate Mr.
Hughart on his sucesss.
At four o'clock we reached Cumberland.
Took the first porter whom we saw to be
an acquaintance, but after shaking.. hands
with him vigorons:y, we discovered that
be was only a person ofthe same color and
not the individual we took him to be. The
Revere Mr se, being nearest the railroad,
we put up. It is a large fine house, but it
looks as if it were out of water, or rather
as ii dirt had the mastery. It is! very
doubtful whether it has been scrub4d for
a. month. Everything about it wettrs a
dirty air. After shown to a room,
which was rather an improvement; upon
the down stairs portion of the housb, we
sauntered forth to take a look at the'tewn.
Seventeen yearn ago, and not since, we
visited the place. There ~re very few traces
of the old town. Thu private residences,
many of them very costly, are very fine.
Perched upon elevated grounds, surround
ed by beautiful yard •, filled with showy
shrubbery, they are very attractive. We
were extremely annoyed at the absence, or
illegibility' 'of door plates. Every man
ought to have pride enough to put up
something with his name 'on it. It would
be a great satisihetion as well as a great
convenience. Every filmier along a high
way ought to do -this. We saw more
drunken men in Cumberland in one hour
than we had scan in a tw nth preciously.
It mast be a good point for Oa whiskey
busine:s. We retired early - tut it was
only to battle with .musquitoes, and to
hear the tramp and clatter, through the
dirty balls below, until two o'clock in
the morning wi - Len we arose to take the
train for Baltimore. The Fast Line, on
the Baltimore and Ohio, comes along at
this unreasonable hour. The train was
composed of only two passenger cars—a
first and second class--,and a sleeper. The
first-class car, which appkred to be very
dirty and dusty. was crowded full, so with
to visit Mr, Garrett in the interest of the
Coomdisville extension from P.ttsburg
west, we were obliged to find seats in the
second-class car which was absolutely filthy.
A fellow had been drinking too much
whiskey and had emptied the contents of
his stomach in the isle,over which we were
compelled to sit or stand, for au hour or
so. The conductor was about the last
man we would have of selected for the
P-siti He tried a little trick to beat
one of our coutpaniomi out of three dollars
but it failed. We do not think that he
would steal a railway train, but it would
only be because he could'nt remove it very
readily and bemuse he might loose his oc
cupation, which miler the circumstances,
is all important to him.
It began to rain and continued to do Si
until we reached Harper's Ferry a little
after day light. Here we took a glance at
the historic Maryland Heights. They
stand out in bold relief and now smile
down on the town, while in the dark days
of the rebellion they were wont to frown
and bristle with cannon. The bridges on
the B. Sr, 0. are the most cosily we have
ever seen. They are all iron, gaudily
painted, and they present a very fine con
trast with the bridges on the Northern
Central and other roads.
Wo reached Baltimore, in the rain at
nine o'clock no Wednesday morning, and
put up at Barnum's Hotel. Here we had
a fine illustration of the first-class hotel
impositioh. We took breakfast and ate
about thirty-five or forty cents worth, but
we were charged one dollar and twenty-
five cents. We were shown to a room in
which we remained just three minutes and
for this we were obliged to pay fifty cents
room rent. It is remarkably strange that
Americans will allow themselves to be so
universally swindled by hotel men, but
they submit to it with a resignation that is
altogether admirable. Baltimore looks as
if it had been almost entirely rebuilt with
in the last five or six years. The baild
logs look new and clean, and many of
them exhibit fine tasta.
At 12.40 we took the Foot Line for
Harrisburg and whirled away, through
rather a monotonous portion of country,
occasionally dotte.l with fine villas, over a
splendid read until we reached York. The
land surrounding this place is of an excel
lent quality and the Pennsylvania Dutch
man has not failed to discover it. We ar
rived at Harrisburg and made the connec
tion directly with the Fast Line, on the
Central, and at 7.40 we arrived at Hut
tingdon, tired, sleepy and dirty.

DEATH OF COLONEL STANTON
We regret to announce, says the Harris
burg Telegraph., of the 6th inst., the un
expected death of Colonel David Stanton,
Auditor General elect, at New Brighton,
Beaver county, at one o'clock on Sunday
(the sth) morning... The death of Col.
Stanton presents-scric;in; difficulty in the
selection of a successor. The term of the
present .Auditor General will not expire
until the first Tuesday in May next, or
until a successor is duly qualified. The
official certificate of Col. Stanton's election
will be made out by a joint committee of
the Legislature, whose duty it is to count
the votes cast at the last election, but Mr.
Stanton will not be able to respond and
assume the duties of the office to which
his fellow citizens called him; hence he
will not be able to take the oath of office,
and General Hartranft will continue to act
until the Legislature can cure the difficulty.

HUNTINGDON, Aug. 3, 1871.
To the President and Members of Select
and Canmon Councils of the City of
Philadelphia. _ _
GENTLEMEN :—Returning home after a
protracted a'asence on nublic duty, I find
an engrossed copy of Resolutions of the
Select and Common Conmeils of the City
of Philadelphia, rendering the thanks of
the City to those members of the Senate
and House of Representatives of the Uni
ted States whom they name as having
earnestly and effectually urged upon the
consideration of Congress the claims of
"League Island Naval Station." The lo
cal interests of the great city of our State,
and the national interests are in harmony
with each other. Iron ships are hereafter
to be the strength of the navies of the
world, as well as the vehicle of its ocean
commerce, and as they can be built upon
the best models, and of the best materials,
and most economically upon the Schuylkill
and Delaware, there is where the Govern
ment's great National Station should be,
whether she build or buy them. Every
member of Congress from Pennsylvania
could feel, therefore, that in securing the
improvement of League Island he was
promoting not only the interests of Phila
delphia and of the State, but was doing the
nation service. Entertaining these views
it would have been duty disregarded to
have done less than was clone to give them

An Interesting Case
The Alansen Church, New York
city, has just been successful in a suit
against Jews, who occupied a room oppo
site the Church as a sewing-machine es
tablishment. Saturday being the regular
Sabbath of their persuasion, they worked
their machines as usual upon Sunday, to
the great disturbance of the Methodist
congregation. They were notified to stop,
and expressed their willingness to do so
during the service, if compensated for their
loss of time. This the congregation de
clined to do, called in the aid of the police
and then brought suit against them. The
test case came up August Bth, the Judge
holding that this country was neither
Jerusalem, Ireland, nor lianitschatka, but
the United States of America; that Sun
day was Sunday, and that no disturbance
to any religious worship of any kind could
be permitted upon that day,
Tho Great Lease
Penwylvania Rd;lroed Vic.forious—Chun-
.cellar Zabriskie Sustains the Lease.
TRENTON, October 18.—Chancellor Za
briskie, at eleven o'clock this forenoon,
rendered a decision in reference to the
leasing of the Camden and Amboy rail
road to the Pennsylvania railroad company.
He decides that the injunction must be
denied, and the order restraining the de
fendants from executing the lease vacated,
thereby rendering his decision in favor of
the lease. In a long decision the points
arrived at are as follows :
First. That the act or 1870 gives the
right to connect with other roads.
Second. That the works are continuous
through the State and connected with
roads in other States.
Third. That all the property of the
roade and their appendages may be leased
and operated without the consent of all
Fourth. That the directors have power
to lease by the consent of the State.
Fifth. That the lease is not unconstitu
Sixth. That the lease of the roads will
be beneficial to the State and so would be
for the public use and good.
Seventh. That the directors of the uni
ted companies in leasing the roads do not
take the property of any stockholder with
out making compensation.
Eighth. That the Pennsylvania compa
ny, by the terms of it: charter, has the
right to accept the terms of the lease.
