Joh.nstown July 4, 1872.
It was twelve o'clock m'uhiight, when
we stepped oat of our door and started
for the railroad. We passed down
Undge street. A whistle or two from
some parties about the north west cor
ner of the Court House square, a queer
shuffling noUe iu the alb'y above pro
fessional office row, and noises of a simi
lar character from th vicinity of the
Odd Fellows Hall were all the sounds
that broke the stillness of the morning
of the new born natal day.
Patterson was unusually quiet, and
uttered no sounds, ouly those that pro
ceeded from .the movements of cars,
yet it is a question if her citizens were in
the enjoyment of sweet sound sleep in a
temnerature engendered by the heat of a
hundred degrees Fahrenheit, in the shade
as the thermometer indicated during the
D receding day.
Tlio train was on time 12 26. We
stepped aboard, and entered the rear
end of a car. The odor that greeted us
was such as onlv 40 or 50 sweltering
human beings spontaneously produce in
a railroad car at midnight of one of the
hottest days that midsummer cfu pro
duce. We did not take a rear end seat,
neither a seat in the middle of the car,
but we hastened to the front end and
took the seat nearest the door so that
when the car would move the bad breath,
of a car full of people asleep would not
constantly be blowing into our face to be
inhaled. We opened the window when
the car started, aud allowed the air and
engine soot to blow freely over us ; it
was much more preferrable than the at
mosphere in the car. A puff or two
from the engine, a few stout jirks. and
we were off. Up, up they go. We say
up. because the grade is contiuually up,
until the top of the Alleghenies are
Lewistown, Huntingdon and other
towns along the line seemed so quiet
that we were impressed with the belief
that they were trying to get cool and a
The early grey of the morning showed
itself plainly as we opened our eyes
from a drowsy state when the train
stopped at Tyrone. Here cannon were
loudly pealing, and small arms sharply
rattling the first evidence that we heard
since our start that the birthday of this
Nation, the best educated, most liberal,
most enterprising, best and greatest peo
ple in the eatth, had again returned.
We walked out onto the platform in
time to see the car in front of the one in
which we rode, disgorge a couple ol
dozen of men, most of whom appeared
as if a coffee-staioed naturalization paper
might easily find a lodgment in their
pockets until election times. We won
dered whether their deetnation was
In due time Altoona was reached. The
same evidence of joy for the return of the
national birth day that we
heard at the
town below, here also greeted the ears.
By the time the train started away
from this young city daylight had fairly
come. The passengers, however, did
not put themselves out of all shapes uutil
the train had fairly commenced to climb
the mountain. Then as if by a magnet-
ic touch they were all awake and gazing i
with bright and eager eyes upon the
wooded aud undulated mountain scenery
of the Alleghenies, as the train sped to
ward the summit, drawn by three en
gines. The trip up the mountain and the dis
tance to Cresson seemed' short, and there
the grandeur of the ride ends. How
quiet everything appeared just then and
there. How delicious was the cool of
the mountain height of a half mile per
pendicular above the level of tbe sea.
It was like passing from physical uncom
firt to physical comfort. And while we
in a half wakeful state were imagining
the delights of a sojourn there during the
hot months of summer, tbe tireless iron
horse sped on toward the summit, over
it and down the western side of the
mountain to Johnstown.
It was just six o'clock when we
walked from the traiu across the station
platform toward the town. The appear
ance of everything at this early honr
plainly indicated a holiday. The streets
were already well lined with neatly
dressed people, and flags floated from
many buildings, and business places
were as silent in appearance as churches
in tbe abseuce of divine service.'
By nine o'clock numerous pic-nic par
ties, and societies, and several fire com
pauies were out in their gayest attire.
seeking each their respectively chosen
spots ou the wooded hill tops and glens
that surrounded the town, for a day's
The regular ceremonies in honor of the
day took place in a large hall on the
Cambria County Fair Ground located
on the bank of the Conemaugh river,
three miles above Johnstown.
When we entered the town there was
no tuougbt further distant from our
mind than that we would witness, any
of the ceremonies of the day excepting
what we might accidently pass on the
streets ; but we caught the infection aud
before we had time seriously to excuse
onrself, we were seated with a friend in
the carriage of Virgil C. Elder, Esq..
Manager of the mechauical works loca
ted here, aud hurriedly driven up along
the river over the bed of the old por
tage road to the fair ground, and arouud
its broad and smooth half mile track to
the Hall. Here the day was observed
with appropriate ceremonies, opening
with the reading of the Declaration of
Independence by Howard J. Roberta,
Cashier of tho First National' Bank of
Johnstown, and an oration by Cyrus
Elder, Secretary of the Industrial
League of America. We could not re
main to hear to the end this able ad
dress, but harried to town to catch the
noon train to Pittsburg. It passed us
on the way, and of course we did not
Johnstown is surrounded by moun
tains, and is located at and about the
junction of the Coneniaugh river with
Stony Creek. It occupies the site of au
Indian village, and was an important
town duriug the prosperous days of the
enl. a the western terminus of the
portage railroad between it - and Holli
daysburg, distant about 3'J miles. We
have a distinct recollection of seeing, iu
our boyhood days, eectiou boats that the
Father, of Mifflin used to tell as. were
taken out of the water at Uollidaysburg
and hauled across the mountain to Johns
town, where they were again placed in
the canal. Traces of the great basin
here that received the boats from the
mountains are vet plainly to be seen in
many places at Johnstown.
The completion of the P. C. R. R.
destroyed the use of the portage road,
aud the great basin aud all its attending
trade was lost, and no longer a source of
revenue and business for the town.
In 1850 the population here was
about fifteen hundred at present it
is fifteen thonsand. The town is divided
iuto six separate boroughs, namely : 1st,
Johnstown ; 2nd, Conemaugh ; 3rd,
Wellsville; 4tb. Cambria City; Sib.
Prospect; 6 th, Wood ville ; and all com
prehended by the outside world under
the name of Johnstown.
The spiritual needs or wants of the
town are drawn through the following
churches : Presbyterian, United Pres
byterian, Methodist, Welsh Methodist.
Calvanistic Methodist. English Lutheran,
Herman Lutheran, Engllen liaplist.
Welsh Baptist, United Brethren, three
Catholics, Congregational, Episcopal, and

Seventeen doctors' minister to the
health of the place, and eight lawyers
settle the quarrels and questions of law
that from time to time arise among the
people. Three Bauks supply the finan
cial requirements of the community, the
first of which is the National Bank, with
D. J. Morell as President, and Howard
J. Roberts as Cashier. The second is a

There are four weekly newspapers
printed in town, three which are in the
English, and one in the German lan

young, full of vigor and ability. Tho
starting of a daily is talked of.
The rapid increase in the population
since 1850 is owing to the organization
anil establishment of the Cambria Iron
Company in 1S52. D. J. Morell, who
so ably represented the Cambria and
Huntingdon district in Congress, is the
c,jef nf this organization, the largest of
the kind in the United States. He, this

This company has a capital of two
millions of dollars, and employs 4000
hands, 3500 of whom are centered about
Johnstown, and five hundred are employ

per ton on every ton of iron ore and coa!
mined, and the men in the furnaces,
rollingmills and steel works, so much

the price of wages is governed by the in

Faykttb tVp, July 2, 1872.
Sir dlor: I seldom write anything
for publication, but if you will allow me
so much space in your columns, I wish to
say a few words in reference to the Public
Printing Question. I a communi.
cation in yotfrpaper of J une 2Cth, signed
Argus, about this matter, and I am of
opinion that Argus is about right. This
law is certainly an obnoxious one aud
ought to be at once repealed. It is not
only obnoxious but unjust. It creates a
patronage that did not formerly exist
I know that when the act of 1867 was
passed the justice and fairness of the law
was argued on tbcjOun4 that the Re
publican papers would thus secure a part
of tbe public patronage, and the Dem
oerats not recieve all the pay for the Pub
lic Printing, with this view of the case
many Republicans favored the law, al
though but few I believe knew anything
about it till it was pissed. They did not
dream that in a few years the cost of the
public printing under this law would be
three times what it had been before, and
thus increase tbe amount of their taxes.
It was considered nothing but fair, but
as soon as they learned that it made new
work for the printers and increased the
expenditures of the county so much they
immediately asked its repeal. I believe
men of all parties asked for its repeal.
Two thirds of the taxpayers were anx
ious to have itjrepealed, and had it not
been for the fact that Senator Crawford
had tbe bill repealed in the Senate, which
was made known to the public through
the papers, large petitions would have been
seut in. The petitions in our township
were signed by a majority of our taxpay
ers.aud many more would have eigued
them but they thought it unnecessary as
nnr representatives had antieinated tfc
desire of our citizens, and acted before
the petitions were sent in. so far as the
Senate was concerned, and did not know
that the House of Representatives must
pass the bill, and then be signed by tbe
Governor before it became a law, and thus
tbe matter was dropped. I for one would
not have supposed that Dr. Crawford
would so far have forgotten his duty as
an honest representative of the people,
to have been a party to such deception.
Evidently it was not intended that tbe
repealing bill should become a law. Mr
Rohrer.a profesed christian, I am inform
ed, promised to have tbe law repealed,
but what did he do t Let it go by default.
Was this worthy the name of honesty and
fair representation! He knew by the
usages of the party and so did others
that he would not be nominated again,
and tbe people would have no opportuni
ty to rebuke him for his conduct, and tbe
parties were not likely to say much about
it, and so bis conduct would pass unnotic
ed and without comment. But the act
passed last winter by Drs. Crawford and
Miteliell is much worse. . I saw a ropy
of it published last winter. It is 'a dis
grace to its authors, and an outrage upon
tbe peopld. It is no doubt iutended for
somebody to make money out of, and
somebody to get votes by but the peo
pie whose rights are songht to be taken
away by the measure, and who have to
pay the taxes, and get advertising done,
will nol let this pass unuoticcd.
I do not profess to know much about
the law, but have transacted some busi
ness where the law requires notices to be
puhli.-hed aud one paper was sufficient
for instance in admiuistcring on an es
tate. Now if I undersand this law, that
notice would have to be published iu two
papers, and the estate have to pay for it.
The county printing was not enough,
but a man's private business must be
controlud. This is Democracy with a
vengance. These laws should be re
pealed, and I, for one, would urge every
voter who pays taxes to see to it that he
votes for no man who has ever favored
such laws. Having been guilty of such
conduct once, no fair promises for future
I good behavior would induce me to vote
I for such a man. Let our county print
j iug be let by contract, to t he lowest bid
der. It will save tbe tax payers 81000,
a year. In 1861, when John Land is, an
honest Republican from this township,
was Commissioner, the public printing
did not cofct $450, if I recollect right,
while last year it cost almost $1500.
