neighboring county of Bedford, resides a noble
son of toil, whose head and beard are now
silveried over with the frosts of many winters,
named Bridenthal. He is to this day, an ac
tive, energetic man, who fears neither man nor
devil, and has much less belief in ghosts than
either of the first named parties. We have
known him for years, and surely we have
known him to be an excellent citizen, yet he
has always been the champion of the weak
against the strong, and in behalf of Right and
Justice he has fought, single handed, his hun
dred battles, nor did he ever stop to consider
the result of the contest, sot he, he only
wanted to know that some one was being im
posed upon and he was ready for the affray,
and beneath his ponderous blows the aggres
sor found it convenient to do the fair thing.
This was many years ago when the common
schools had not done as much for the eleva
tion of the race as they have since done.
A long time since, Bridenthal secured a res
deuce in St. Clairsville, a small village named
in honor of General Arthur St. Clair, who was
the firstProthonotary of Bedford county, about
ten miles from Bedford, on the public road
leading to Hollidaysburg, and moved into it.
A short time after Bridenthal occupied the
house lie learned that a report was in circu
lation, among the neighbors, that the house
was haunted, and that the immediately pre
ceding occupant had left it on that account.
He was very much annoyed at the report, not
that he cared anything about it, as far as he
himself was concerned, but lest the family,
which consisted of an excellent wife and a
number of small children, should bear it and
become alarmed. The report was, to the of
feet, that unearthly noises, something like the
moaning and wheezing of a child, were heard
to issue from the house, at all hours of the
night. It was but a short time until the fam
ily was terribly alarmed and Bridenthal's
worst fears realized.
One night he was aroused, from a sound
sleep, by his wife, who was in a wild state of
trepidation, and his attention called to a pecu
liar moaning and wheezing noise, such a pecu
liar noise as lie had never before heard. lie
did all he could to allay the fears of his wife,
but fear of the supernatural is difficult to re
move. He invented many plausible theories
to account for the unnatural noise. And yet
lie bad considerable difficulty in reconciling
himself to them. The truth of it is, that the
man who, in daylight, under the eye of his
officer and the flag of his country, will march
up to the cannon's mouth, will tremble, at the
rustling of the leaves, in the woods, at night.
Bridenthal did not like it a bit. But he com
posed himself as best he could, until daylight,
when his head and nerves would be steadier.
Several sleepless nights thus passed away, and
ever and anon the noises were to be distinctly
heard. The neighborhood was very much
alarmed, and the house became famous in a
few days.
No traces, however, were visible of anything
that could produce the noise. At last Briden
tbal, who is a man of strong common sense,
and who laughed at the idea of a ghost, deter
mined to make a thorough investigation. At
tached to the rear of the house was a summer
kitchen, which was seated almost flat upon the
ground. Ile procured a lever and pried up
one end of this structure, when out popped
a cat, and ran up the street. It stopped short,
when a few yards away, and made the same
noise that they had heard, night after night,
and began to retch, and in a short time it
relieved itself of something, and on examina
tion it was found to be a bone of a chicken,
whiclibad, evidently, been fast in its throat
for a long time. There were no noises of the
kind heard after this. It were well always to
do as Mr. Bridenthal did, and there would he
a very agreeable termination of all ghost sto-
A TUIEVING "TRAMP."—We think it
our duty to warn our brethren of the press to
keep both eyes open for a drunken, worthless,
thieving jour printer named John R. Keelly,
alias Foster, alias the devil knows who. He
visited this place last week, and after begging
money sufficient to keep him drunk for two
days, on Wednesday night he took his departure
for parts unknown—he should be in the coun
try where it is unnecessary to kindle fires a t
night—taking with him, from this office, a
heavy beaver overcoat, a new cloth sack coat,
of a bluish cast, in the pocket of which was a
memorandum book, containing two passes,
and greenbacks sufficient to keep him drunk
for a few days. Said individual is about 5 fee t
6 inches high, slimly built, swarthy complex
ion, long black hair and moustache, slightly
sprinkled with gray. While here he wore a
cap, part of a pair of canvass gaiters, a black
frock coat—rather seedy looking—and half a
pair of pantaloons. lle talks glibby, and at
first sight would be taken for an honest man,
but upon closer scrutiny, any person, ac
quainted with physiognomy, could detect the
true character of this thieving vagabond. Ras
cality is depicted in his countenance, and his
every action characterises him as a first-class
scoundrel, who lives by begging and stealing
from members of a profession which he dis
graces. We hereby give notice to all profes
sional "tramps" to give the JOURNAL establish
ment a wide berth in their wanderings, as we
have "shut down," now, henceforth, and for
' ever, on all such nuisances. As far as we are
concerned, these professional beggars can find
quarters in the poor houses of the country or
starve. We again warn our brethren of the
quill to be on the alert for this thief and
drunken desperado, and we ask, as a special
favor, that they give him the benefit of this
notice. Go for him

ing from a Building.—Yesterday morning soon
after seven o'clock, a terrible accident occur
red which resulted in the death of Mr. Richard
Greenland, carpenter, who lived on Maple
street, near Eleventh. Ile had the contract
for the woodwork of Williams' brick block,
which is now being erected on Court Avenue,
opposite the Turner block, and was engaged
in setting a joint on the top of the building
when the accident occurred, which ended his
life. Ile, in company with two of his men,
had gone to the top of the building soon after
seven o'clock, where they at once went to
lay the joist. The deceased and one of his
men, named Davis, were working near each
other, and as they were so engaged Mr. Green
land happened to stand on the brick wall,with
his face toward the inside of the building, in
order to lift the end of the joist. As he was
doing so, one of the bricks on which he stood
gave way, and he fell backward to the roof of
the store of Mr. Newman, which adjoins the
Williams' block, thirty two feet below where
he was standing, and, falling on his head, was
instantly killed. The two men who were at
work with him on the building, at once low
, cred themselves to the roof of Newman's store,
where Mr. Greenland was lying, and found
that he was quite dead. His head having
struck the corner of a brick which was lying li
on the spot on which he fell, his skull was
found to be crushed in, and death must have
resulted instantaneously. His body was taken
from the roof of Mr. Newman's store as soon
as possible, and taken home, his wife having
first been apprised of tae melancholy fate of
her husband, by some friend of the family.
Mr. Greenland had lived in Des Moines for
about ten years, and was very much respected
by all who knew him. He has always been
known as a straightforward, hardworking, in
dustrious man. He leaves a wife and two
children, one eight years of age, and the oth
er only a year old, to mourn his untimely loss.
His remains were last night takes to Saline,
Jefferson county, to be there interred. Yes
terday afternoon, funeral exercises were con
ducted at his house by Elder Nash, at which
there were present a large number of sympa
Hazing friends of the friends.—Dee Moines

Pitor•. JOAN C. CLARKSON.—We had
the pleasure of taking by the hand, one day
last week, our highly esteemed friend, and co
laborer, of former years, Prof. J. C. Clarkson,
now connected with the Cassville Soldiers'
Orphan School. He is an accomplished, genial
gentleman, and one of the most successful
teachers in Central Pennsylvania. We became
acquainted with Mr. Clarkson when located
at Bloody Run, Bedford county, and we re
member, with him, making almost the entire
canvass of that county, in the year 1864,
starting in at Bridgeport and coming out at
Woodberry and winding up at Bedford. Most
of his speeches, in that campaign,were marked
by great clearness, and were delivered with
splendid effect. We performed heavier labor
in that canvass than we have ever performed
since, which, we suppose, was also the case
of Mr. Clarkson. We labored hard then to
elevate some persons to office, at our own ex
pense, who, in all probability, "went back on
us" before oc, words were cold. This has
generally been our experience. In the spring
following, Mr. Clarkson was a candidate for
County Superintendent of Common Schools,
of Bedford county, and came within six or
seven votes of being elected. Ile shortly af
terwards left the county, and for the last few
years has been connected with the above
school, where he has been brilliantly success
ful. Long may he wave.

HUNTIN.DON, Nov. 20, 1871
Mr. Editor:—The Ladies of the Relief Soci
ety beg leave to state, through your columns,
for the benefit of those who responded so prompt
ly to their call for aid for the North West; that
two W boxes of beddingand clothing, (and bag
of potatoes ,the contribution of Mr. Jno. Thomp
son of Mount Union,) have been forwarded,
freight free, by Penna. Central, and they are
now preparing a third, which they expect to
send to Chicago during the latter part of this
They would be glad to receive contributions
for it also, in money, clothing, groceries, ect..
which can be lett with Mrs. W H. Woods, at
whose house the next box will be packed.
One box was sent to Relief Committee at
Green Bay; the other, iu answer to an appeal
which we give below, being an extract from a
letter received by one of our number from a
"We have just forned a Relief Association
for assisting the destitute in our congregation,
also any special class which may come to our
knowledge—such persons as have not been
able to yet help from the General Fund.
"In the multiplicity of its duties, the G. R.
Association often neglects per.oos who are
really needy. Many of us having knowledge
of such cases, we have concluded it is our
ditty to take up a special work, but our only
way for carrying it on, is by donations from a
distance, as most of our members have lost so
much by the fire, that they are unable to give
much, if anything, to such a fund.
If your town or church has not already done
all you can, could you not send us something?
You may be sure that anything we receive will
go to those only who need it, which, I am sor
ry to say, is not, cannot always be the case, in
such a large body as the G. R. A.
You may ask what shall we send? we nay
anything, anything ever used by man, woman
or child, as there are many families who only
got away from the fire with what they had on.
I hope if you can, you will do something for
us; it would make your heart sick to hear the
tales of distress that we hear, and no way to
help them. I sometimes feel leaving the
city to get rested from the continued excite
ment we have, but if it were right, I cannot
leave my household duties.
Boxes should be directed Fullerton Ave. Re
lief Society, care General Stockton, General
Fright Agent, Chicago. Send the bill of lading
when you start the goods, and put a note into
the box telling where it was sent from.

TRIBUTE OF RESPECT.-At a meeting of the
Huntingdon Light Inf intry, N. G. of Pa., held
on the 19th inst., to take action on the death
of Private George Couts, the following prelim
ble and resolutions were adopted :
Whereas, Our late comrade, George Costs,
after long and honorable service as a soldier
during the late Rebellion, and after passing
safely through all the dangers incident to such
a life, has come to a sudden and violent death
under circumstances in which danger was so
little to be expected that it could scarcely be
guarded against
Resolved, That in the deportment of Com
rade Couts, as a soldier and gentleman, we
have an example which we may well remember
and follow, and that to do so will make us
better as members of society and as members
of the military organization to which we be
long. . _
Resolved, That we will attend the funeral
of the deceased in a body, and wear the usual
badge of mourning.
Resolved, That the proceedings of this meet
ing be spread at large upon the records of the
Company, that these resolutions be published
in the newspapers of the borough, and that a
copy of them be presented to the family of the
deceased. W. K. BURCHINELL,

FIRE—On last Wednesday evening,
between seven and eight o'clock, fire was dis
covered in the stable in the rear of the "Broad
Top Honse," which, being frame, was, in a
few minutes, almost entirely consumed. The
flames were happily arrested and but little
damage done beyond the destruction of
the stable, though in close proximity to many
valuable buildings. The fire is supposed to
have been the work of an incendiary.

to hand, containing nineteen choice pieces of
Vocal and Instrumental Music, all of which
can be had for 30 cents. It seems bard to
believe that so much can be furnished for such
a small sum, but we know that it is. It comes
regularly every month, and contains nothing
but good music.
Bound volumes for 1871 are offered, post
paid, for $5. They come elegantly bound in
crimson cloth, gilt sides and edges, and are
guaranteed to contain $5O worth of choice
Piano Music, (some 200 pieces.) If ordered
per express, $4.50 will secure it. We would
advise all those seeking Holiday Presents to
bear this work in mind. Music is always a
proper present to a lady, and in noother shape
can the same amount of good music be
bought. It is published by J. L. Peters, 599
Broadway, New-York.

at Burlington, and called the BURLINGTON
The main line of the Route running to Oma
ha, connects with the great Pacific Roads, and
forms to-day the leading route to California.
The Middle Branch, entering Nebraska at
Plattsmouth, passes through Lincoln, the State
Capital, and will this year be finished to Fort
Kearney - , forming the shortest route across the
Continent by over 100 miles.
Another branch of the B. IL, diverging at
Red Oak, falls into a line running down the
Missouri through St. Joe to Kansas City, and
all Kansas. Passengers by this route to Kan
sas, see Illinois, Southern lowa, and Missouri,
and, by a slight divergence, can see Nebraska
also. _ _
Lovers of fine views should remember the
Burlington Route, for its towns "high gleam
ing from afar"—its tree-fringed streams—its
rough bluffs and quarries—its corn oceans
stretching over the prairies further than eye
can reach.
Land-buyers will be sure to remember it, for
they have friends among the two thousand
who have already bought farms from Geo. S.
Harris, the Land Comissioner of the 13. & M.
R. R. at Burlington, lowa, or among the four
thousand home- steaders and pre-emptors who
last year filed claims in the Lincoln land or
flee, where "Uncle Sam is rich enough to give
us all a farm."
