The names of Property Holders generally —care
fully including those vho order the work —will
be engraved upon the Map,showing the exact lo
cation of each.
Extra Maps of the Principal Villages will be
engraved upon the margin o e the Map ; also a
Table of Distances, showing the number of miles
from ach Post office to every otheJ throughout
the county, together with the latest statistical in*
formation. .An ornamental border will surround
The Map will be engraved by the m st skillful
Artists in the country, handsomely Colored and
mounted, and will he delivered to those who or
der for Five dollars per copy.
Wo are now actively engaged in forwarding the
work, and shall endeavor to give every property
holder an opportunity of ordering a copy, and al
so ot examining the work before its final com
pletion; in order to make it entirely satisfactory
as to accuracy, Ac.
The map will contain all the information usual
ly fouud in Town maps, for each of the towns in
the county, and it is obvious that the most liberal
patronage is needed to sustain us in producing a
work of so great magnitude and expense. As it
is evidently of such practical utility and iuteiost
to bu.-incss men and citizens generally, present
ing so minute and distinct a representation of the
county, that even the child may readily acquire a
correct idea of each town, village, Ac., and their
trne directions, distances from each other, we con
fidently solicit and expect the heariy co-operation
of the intelligent and enterprising citizens of Ceu
S. D. TILDEN. Publisher.
These maps are said exclusively by the
Publisher, and no variation in price. No more
maps are primed than what are actually ordered.
We the undersigned, having examined there
cent surveys and drafts of Centre county, also
Topographical Maps of other counties, pulistied
by Mr. S. D. Tilden, tako pleasure in recommend
ing a Topographscai Map o f this connty, whieh is
very much needed, being of great practical value
to business men and citizens generally, and from
he united testimonials and recommendations the_
live from utstinguished gentlemen wh-.re they
ave made surveys and published county maps.—
We feel confident they will furnish an accurate,
reliable and useful Map and Directory well w tr
ty of liberal patronage.
* e hope the citizens of this county will interest
themselves sufficiently in this enterprise, so that
the Publisher may engrave upon the margin of
the map, extra plans of the villages in the county
upon an enlarged scale.
Considering the expense of such a survey of the
whole county, and being entirely a local work wo
think it is offered to the citizens on very reason

THE CELEBRATED HOLLAND REMEDY FOR
DISEASE OF THE KIDNEYS,

FEVER AND AGUE,
Ana the various affections consequent upon a disordered
STOMACH OR LITER,
Such as Indigestion, Acidity of the Stomach, Colicky Pains,
Heartburn. Loss of Appetite, Despondency, Costiveuess,
Blind and Bleeding Piles. In all Nervous, Rheumatic, and
Neuralgic Affections, it has iu numerous instances proved
highly beneficial, and in others effected a decided cure.
This is a purely vegetable eonipouud, prepared on strictly
scientific principles, nfter the manner of the celebrated
H-.Hand Professor. Boerhave. Its reputation at home pro
duced its introduction here, the demand commencing with
those of the Fatherland scattered over the face of tills
mighty country, many of whom* brought with them and
handed down the tradition of its value. It is now offered
to the American public, hi owing that its truly wonderful
medicinal virtues must be achunoledged.
It is particularly recommended to those persons whose
constitutions may have been impaired by the continuous use
of ardent spirits, or other forms of dissipation. Generally
instantaneous in effect, it finds its way directly to the seat
of life, thrilling and quickening every nerve, raising up tho
drooping spirit, and, in fact, infusing new health and vigor
in the system.
NOTlCE.—Whoever expects to find this a beverage wid
be disappointed; but to the sick, weak and low spirited, it
will prove a grateful aromatic cordial, nosscssed of singular
The Genuine highly concentrated Boerhave's Holland

We now have ample details of the last
graud battle fought in Christendom, and
they show that it is worthy of the cause of
Italy, and of the reputation of Garibaldi, and
of the valor of his soldiers. The action was
fought on the first dhy of October, and was
brought on by a forward movement made by
the ex-king of Naples, who seems to have
come to the conclusion that he must help
hiicseifif he wouldfbe helped by others
There was an abl-Ir head than his in the
work, but he showed! a hrayery and a capac
ity in the battle that has half redeemed his
fame. The combat lasted for many hours,
and though the patriots were by no means
deficient in valor orfcoolness, it is not unjust
to them lo say, that |f anything had happen
ed to keep Garibaldifahsent, they would have
been beaten. Nor would defeat, though it
might have been fuial to their cause, have
been disgraceful to them as men and soldiers,
for their enemies ware twiee as numerous as
they were, and were well-trained warriors,
supplied with ail things that were calculated
13 make them efficient in battle. But noth
ing could stand up against the energy of the
patriots and the genius of Garibaldi. Nei
ther high discipline, nor desperate courage,
nor good leading, nor splendid equipments,
Dor double strength in numbers, could avail
in opposition to ihe delivering army. That
the latter did not buy their victory cheaply,
or win it over inferior men, is apparent from
the fact that they lost 4,500 men, or Dearly
one-third of their whole number, a propor
tion of loss tha£baß but few parallels in mil
itary history. The Neapolitans, with 30,000
in the field, did Dot lose so many men as
were lost by the Garihaldians, who were not
above 15,000 strong. It was downright hard
fighting that did most of the work, the butt
and the bayonet settling the fate of many
hundred brave soldiers, whose souls should
rest in peace.
We have reports uf further actions, the
Bourbonists attacking the Garihaldians and
be og again beaten, l'he ex-ktng evidtn r y

where the Emperors cf Austria and liui-sia'

lesser potentates, met on the 20th of October,

his remnant of Naples, his imperial and roy
al brethren may give him aid to recover the
whole of "he two kingdoms forfeited by the
tolly and tyranny of him-elf and his house.
On the top of a ridge of mountains in P or-
tugal, called Estrella, are two lakes of great
extent and depth, especially one of them,
which is said to be unfathomable. What is
chiefly remarkable iu them is, that they are
calm when the sea is calm, and rough when
that is stormy. It is, therefore, probub : e
that they have a subterranean coinniunica
tion with the ocean ; and this seems to be
confirmed by the pieces of ships they throw
up, though, almost forty miles distant from
There is another extraordinary lake in this
country ; which, before a storm, is said to
make a frightful rumbling noise, that may
he beard at a distance of several miles.
And we are aiso toid of a pool or fountain,
called "Fervencias," about twenty-four miles
from Coimbra, that absorbs not only wood,
but tbe lijrhest bodies thrown into it, sueh as
cork, straw, feathers, etc., which sink and
are never stten again.
To these vye may add a remarakble spring
near Estremos, which petrifies woou, or rath
er encrusts it with a case of stone ; but the
most remarkable circumstance is, that in
summer it throws up water enough to turn
several mills, and in the winter is perfectly
dry.— Smith's Wonders.

111 assorted marriages are, in a great num
ber of instances, the result of parental re
missness, in not beginning early enough to
instil into the mind of the child such an aver
sion to certain trails of character, and such
a high estimate of certain moral qualities, as
a true wisdom would dictate in the premises.
It certainly is rot an impossible thing to
impress the youthful mind with an uncon
querable repugnance against a character the
most strining trait of which is a contemnti
ble trickery, an abhorrent profanity, a little
settled meanness, or a degrading animalism.
Just as well may tho young heart be fortified
against loving the miser, the spendthrift and
gamester—against those whose prominent
exhibitions demonstrate au irascibility, in all
absorbing selfishness or stony-heartedness ;
Of a contempt of honest labor, of religion, or
of pecuniary obligation. While our children
may be early taught an aversion to such
traits of character, their adm;ration may be
cultivated for all that is manly and honora
hie and self sacrificing ; for all that is true
and.pure and generous *, (or all who are in
dustrious diligent and economical.
It is unwise to hope for domestic happi
ness in the possession of a single favorable
trait of character ; it is better to look for a
combination, and they are to be most con
gratulated who can discern and woo and win
the possessor of the largest number of good
points. First of all, the man whom you love,
the woman whom you adore, should poseess
a high sense of . light ar.d wrong;—
next, bodily health ; and, thirdly, moral
biavery. a courage to be industrious, eco
nomical and self-denytng. With the:e three
traits, principle, health, arid a soul that can
do and dare all that one ought to, domestic
felicity will abide. None ought to marry,
who cannot command the means of enabling
them to live in comfort according to their
station In life, without grinding economies.
It is useless to talk about love in a eottage.
The little rascal always runs away when
there is r.o bread and butter on the table. —
There is more love ic a full flour-barrel than
iu all the roses and posies and woodbines
that ever grew.
No mechanic should marry until he is mas
ter of his trade ; nor a professional man un
til his income is adequate to the style uf life
which he determines upon ; nor the mer
chant until his clear anuual gains are equal
to his domestic expenditures, unless indeed
there are, in either case, independent, and
unconditional sources of income.— Hall's

Arnold s Love of Home
Smiles speaks of the attachment which the
exellent and lamented Lr. Arnold of Rugby
lull for the beauties of his home. It reminds
us of what Berwick, who was animated by a
simil-r spirit, said— 4 I had rather herd
sheep on Micklehauk Brae than he premier
Interested as Arnold wis in the ongoings
of the outer world, he intensely ecjoyed his
..wo fauii'y and fireside. At Laleham, at
Rugby, hut ah ve a'l in hi- country home at
Fox How, n -ar llydal, ir, Westmorland, bis
heart rati over with expressions of joy and
deep delight. F. x How wa- the paradise to
whicb he retreated to the turm >il of the
world. 44 It is with a mixed feeling of so
lemnity and tenderness," he said, 41 that I
regard my mountain nest, whose surpassing
sweeatnes3, I think I may safely say, adds a
positive happiness to every one of my wa
king hours passed in it." VV hen absent
from Fox Iluw, it "dwelt on his memory ts
a vision of beauty from one vacation to an
other and when present there, he felt that
41 no hasty or excited admiration of a tourist
could he compared with the homely delight
of having the mountains and streams as fa
miliar objects, connected with all the enjoy
ments of home, ones family, one's books, and
one's friends." Among the delicious scen
ery of Italy he said, that '* if he stayed more
than a day at the most beautiful spot in the
world, it would only bring on a longing for
Fox llow and it was his repeated wish
that, when he died, 14 his bones should go to
Grasmere churchyard, to lie under the yews
which Wordsworth planted, and to have the
Rotha, with its deep and silent pools, pass
Tbe Impudence of the Purpie Eartin
As is the case with many familiar birds,
such as the robin, tho sparrow, and the swal
low, the purple mar in is a most fearless and
withal quarrtls.-uie bird, greatly delighting
in annoying any other bird that may happen
to bo larger than itself, and trusting to its
great command of wing for impunity.—
Hawks of all kinds, crows, jays, aud simt'ar
birds live in constant terror of the purple
martin, which no sooner sees the hateful form
of a bav k or crow in the distance, that it flies
at him savagely, and makes such rapid and
vicious pounces, that the wretched victim is
fain to escape as he best can front the attacks
of his small but determined foe. Even the
eagle enjoys no immunity from the persecu
tion of the purple martin, which dashes at
tbe regal bird with us much ascurunee as if
it were only chasing a. pigeoc.

I common comfort, which, by daily use, has
lost its sense ; yet, ou the ear of him who

A Romantic Story.

gaged in the persecution of inilitaiy claims,
fell in accidentally with a case in which both
a man ar.d his wife reeeived pensions for
Revolutionary services. The singularity of
the circumstances struck him so forcib'y that
he instituted an inquiry, ami elicited trom
an old lady, the sole surviving descendant,
the following facts. [We state them sub
stantially, hut our infurmaut not being pres
ent it is possible that we mat he incorrect in
some insignificant partiulars.]
Early in the Revolutionary war, a man
named Lane (we thir.k) enlisted in a comja
ny raised in the neighborhood of Manches
ter. to serve three years. He went with his
regiment to the North, and there joined
Washington's army. Taking part in all the
previous battles, he was severely wounded at
Brandywine or Germatitown ; and during
the battle, and after, was taken care of by
a brother soldier, to whom he had become
greatly attached, and who belonged to the
same company with himself. The term of
service having expired, these two soldiers re
turned home, devoted and inseparable
friends. In the meantime the tide of war
rolled to the South,and the couple had scarce
ly reached their destination, when they again
enlisted to serve in General Lincoln's arinv,
at that time engaged in the seige of Savan
nah. Our readers well know that Lincoln
was cooped up in Charleston and compelled
to surrender, after a long seige, to tho royal
forces under Sir Henry Clinton.
Throughout this seige Lane and hisfrieod
stood to their post like heroes, and did their
duty bravely. At last Lane's comrade was
wounded in turn, and was carried off the
field in the arms of his devoted friend. What
must have been the amazement of Lane on
discovering that the brave comrade, who bad
so long fought by his side and nursed him
so tenderly when be was wounded, through
the report of the attending surgeon, was a
woman ! It appears that she had accident
ally fallen in with him sompwhere, and had
formed a strong attachment lo him. At the
same time, from some cause or other, she had
made so little impression upon him that he
did not recognize her in the least when he
.afterwards met her disguised as a soldier. —
She was in despair when Lane enlisted, and
under the influence of that feeling she fled
from her parents' home, donned the Conti
nental uniform, and followed him to the
wars. What folio wed was a proper final to
such a romance. The wtuoded woman re
covered, and as soon as the twain were re
leased from captivity they became one. Tbey
lived happily for many years, and left sev
eral children. Iscidents of this nature—
disguised damsels following their lover to
war in the capacity cf pages—were great fa
; vorites with all the old romance writers. —
Nevertheless, we feel assured that the tale
we have recorded is true in all essential par
ticulars. At any rate, both the man and his
wife received pensions for services rendered
as soldiers, until the days of their d jath re
The Age of Forty-Six
Thomas Hood died at the age of forty-six,
at the very moment when he had excited the
greatest expectations. There seems to he a
fatality at this period of life for a certain
class of intellects, nearly as great as that
which has rendered the age of thirty-seven
dangerous to the higher ranks of artistic ge
nius—to Raphael, to Mozait, to Burns, to
Byron. It is the grand climateric of a sol
dier's aud the statesman's life. At forty-six
Pitt gave up the ghost, E.ud passed away in
tuepiimeof bis powers. At forty six Na
poleon lost the battle of Wa'erloo, and end
ed his career. At forty-six Wellington won
that battle, and may he said almost to have
commenced his civil career. At torty-seven
Nelson's hour had ootne at Trafalgar. In
literature, we find that Spencer died at for
ty-six, Addison at forty-seven, Goldsmith at
forty-six, Hood at lorry six.
Ne'son's bus' Worshipped as an Idol
Hayiien papers of a recent date mention
the following extraordinary circumstance.—
4- Among the Aeul mountains there has been
found, in an old house, a bust of Lord Nelson
It is of white marble, somewhat stained by
time and neglect. Nelson is represented in
his costume of Admiral and bears on his
breast five decorations. One in commemo
ration of tbe battle of Aboukir, has the in
scription : 44 Rear Admiral Lord Nelson ot
the Nile." Ar other medal bears the words:
,4 A!mighty God has blessed his Majesty's
44 This bust, interesting in its artistic and
historical association, was found on an a'tar
devoted to the fetish worship, where for half
a century, it has been reverenced as the
"Deity of the Mountain Streams. ' The
names of tbe sculptors were 44 Coale and
Leary, of Lambeth."
" Thus for fifty years the bust of an Eng
lish Admiral has been worshipped asa hea
44 The finder of the statue has refused an
offer ol five hundred dollars for it."

A Train Saved SupernaturalJy
The Xenia (Ohio) Kites is publishing a
fiprips of reminiscences by an engineer. In
No. 24 of his series the writer gives the
following a f artling incident ;
I was running a night express train of
ten cirs—eight passenger and two b.tggage
cars, and all were well loaded. I was be
hind time, and wis anxious to make a cer
tain point ; therefore I was using every ex
ertion, and putting the engine to the utmost
speed of which it was capable. *1 was on
a -ection of the road usually oonsidered the
best running ground on the line, and was
endeavoring to make the most of it, when a
Conviction struck me that I must stop. A
something'seemed tot tell me that, to go
ahead was dangerous, and that I must stop
if I would save my life. I looked at my
traiD, and it was all right. I strained my
eyes and peered into tho darkness, and
could see no signal of.'danger, and there I
could see five miles in the daytime. 1 lis
tened to the workiog engine, tried the
water, looked at the scales, aDd all was right.
I tried to laugh myself out of what I then
considered to be childish fear , but like a
Baoquo's ghost, it would not down on my
bidding, but grew stronger in its bold upon
me. 1 thought of the ridicule I would have
heaped upon mc if did stop j but it was
all of no avail.
The conviction that I must,. stop grew
stronger and stronger, and resolved to stop ;
I shut off and blew the whistle for down
brakes accordingly. I came to a dead halt
got off and went ahead a little way, with
out saying a word to any body what was
the matter. I had my lamp in my hand,
and I had gone only about sixty feet when
I saw what convincd me that premonitions
are sometimes possible. 1 dropped my lan
tern from my nerveless grasp and sank on
tbe track utterly uuable to stand ; for there
was a switch, the thought of which had nev
er entered my mind, as it had never been
used since I had bben on tbe road, and
was known to be epiked, but which was now
open to lead me off the track. This switch
led iDto a stone quarry, from which stone for
bridge purposes had been quarried, and the
switch was left there but was always kept
locked and tbe ewiteii rail spiked, i'et here
it was wide open, and, had I not obeyed my
premonition—my warning—call it what you
may—l should have run into it, and at the
I end of the track, only about ten rods long,
my heavy engine and traiu, moving at the
rate of forty-live miles and hour, would have
come in collision with a eolid wall of rock
eighteen feel high. The consequences had
I done so, can neither be imagined nor des
cribee ; but they could, by no possibility,
have been otherwise than fatally horrid.—
This is my experience in getting warnings
from a source that I know not aud cannot
Sympathy of Sound.
It is owing to the sympathetic commu
nication" of vibrations, that persons with
clear and powerful voices have been able to
break a large glass tumbler by singing close
to its fundamental note. We have beard of
case where a person broke no fewer than
twelve glasses," in rapid succession.
The sympathy of vibrations, or the ten
dency of one vibrating body to throw anoth
er into the very same state of vibration,
shows itself remarkably in tne case of two
clocks fixed on the same shelf or wall. It
was known near a century ago that two
clacks set agoing on the same shelf will af
fect each other. The pendulum of one will
stop that of the other ; and the pendulum of
the one stopped, after a certain time,
yill resume its vibrations, and in its turn,
stop the other pendulum.
These effects are clearly produced by the
small vibrations communicated from the one
pendulum to the other, through the shelf or
rail, or plank on which they both rest. It
has also been found that two conflicting
sounds produce silence, as two converging
rays of light produce darkness.
A Charge as is a Charge
Judge Jonah Joels recently delivered the
following charge to the jury, in ca6e of Elim
Church, for stealing :
"Jury, you kin go out, an d don't show
your ugly mugs in here till you find a ver
dict. If you can't find one of your own, git
the one the last jury used."
The jury retired, and after an absence of
fifteen, minutes, returned with a verdict of
suicide in the ninth degree and the fourth
Then Judge Jonah Joels pronounced upon
Elim Church, this sentence:
"Elim Church stand up and face the mu
sic. You are found guilty of suicide for
stealing. Now this court sentences you to
pay a tine of two shillings, to 6huve your
bead with a bagganet in the barricks, and if
you try to cave in the heads of any of the
jury you'll catch thunder, that's all. Your
fate will be a warning to others, and in con
elusion, Sheriff, bring me a pint of red eye—
I'm awful tbursty."
Happiness and sorrow aro the mea
sures of oui mortal life ; we willingly re
cord the niomciits of gladness, and sorrow's
hours make their own impress.
Reflection is a flower of the mind giv
ing out 2 wholesome fragrance.
