CLEARFIELD, PA., JULY 8, 18S7.
The Asncai. ExniBiwo.v of Clearfield Insti
tute will be on Thursday Evening, July 9th,
lost., in front of the Academy. A cordial in
vitation is extended to all.
The ForRTH.- Last Saturday was the Anni
versary of our Xational Independence, and
was appropriately observed at various places
in our county. In our own Borough, there
was a Union Sabbath School celebration, at
which the Declaration of Independence was
read by T. J. McCuMough, Esq., and some neat
and pertinent remarks were made by Rev. Mr.
Galloway. The ladies had prepared, at Liber
ty Spring, a fine repast, to which ample justice
was done by those present.."
In Curwensville, there was also a Union Sab
bath School celebration, which was largely at
tended, from GOG to 800 persons having been
present. An elegant collation of the "good
things of earth," was spread in the grove
south of towji and a most beautiful spot it is,
too and there, with excellent and, enlivening
music by the Curwensville Saxe-Horn Band,
dine passed away rapidly and pleasantly. The
Declaration was read by Dr. Thompson, and
-appropriate addresses delivered by Rev. L. L.
-Still and Rev. T. Carnhart. In the evening
there was a splendid display of fire-works
decidedly the best we ever w itneased in any
- country town.
Our Lumber City friends, we understand,
had also a oo J celebration and, we believe,
there was another at Clearfield Bridge. We
lrcsunie there were others, of which we are
oot-t this time cognizant.
It is gratifying to see the peoplu engage in
these demonstrations. It shows that they re
vere the memory of those who sacrificed their
fortunes and lives to achieve the freedom we
now enjoy, and that their attachment and de
votion to their native land, its liberal institu
tions, and its manifold blessings, is" strong as
ever, and cannot be perverted by the political
agitations to which our country is necessarily
eitlject. May it be so ever! '
Oct ov Jail and is again ! A fellow nam
ed r. Henry, who was committed to our coun
ty jail a short time since on a charge of rape,
inavi his escape on Friday night, the 3d inst.
lie hung a portion of his clothing on the
bed-post, and fixed up his bed as if he were in
it, and when the jailor opened tbo door in the
evening, he slipped out into the yard, the wall
of which he managed to scale. Fortunately,
the Sheriff" happened to be in the upper end
of the count-, where the fugitive went for
some other clothes, and succeeded in retak
ing and again lodging him in prison on Satur
day. Quick work that".

riO THOSE WHO WANT FARMS.
A A FARM WITHIN THE REACH OF
THE R IDG WAY FARM COMPANY has made ar
rangements by which all who desire to settle tr
purchase a home can do so. The farms consist of
the best limestone soil of the most superior quality
for farming, in a rapidly improving plaoo. iuto
which an extensive emigration is now pouring.
The property is located in Elk County. Pennsylva
nia, in the midst of a thriving population of some
10.000. The climate is perfectly healthy, and the
terrible plaguoof the west fever is unknown. It
also has an abundance of the host quality of Coal
and Iron. The price to buy it out is from S3 to
?20 per acre, payable in instalments, to be located
at tho time of purchasing, or a share of 25 acres
entitling to locate the saino for S.'SoO, payabln $8
Eer mouth or 12i acres payable iH per month.-
liscount for every sum of $100 and under, paid in
advance, a discount of 5 per cent, wilt be allowed,
and for over 4-100 a discount ot 10 per cent.
In considering the advantages of emigrating to
this locality the following are presented :
.-First The soil is a rich limestone, capable of
raising the heaviest crops, owing to which this set
tlement has attained its present great prosperity.
Second 1 1 is the eentre of the great North West
Coal Basin, and is destined soon to become one of
the greatest business places in the State. It will
supply tho great Lake market, (according to popu
lation and travel the greatest in the Cnion.) It
has five workable vcines of the best Bituminous
Coal, amounting in tho aggregate to over 22 feet,
which makes 22.000 tons of coal under each acre.
This will make the land of inestimable value.
Third The eminent state geologist Dr. Chas.
T. Jackson of Bostou, has made a geological sur
vey of-tho land, and analysed the coal, tho iron
ore and the limestone. This report together with
maps will be furnished to inquirers.
Fourth Three railroads are laid out through
this property. The Sunbury and Erie Railroad
gives us a market foroureoal to the Lakes it runs
Trom Erie to Philadelphia. A large parted" this
road has been finished, and is now in running or
der. A heavy force is now working from Fie to
wards our land in the western direction, tho means
for the completion of which has been raised it
will soon be finished. The Allegheny Valley Rail
road connects us wilh Now York, Boston and Pitts
burg. The Venango Road connects us with the
There are already good Turnpiko roads running
through the property, various other roads havo
been opened to accommodate tho emigration and
settlement which has already taken place.
There is no opportunity cqnal to it now offered
to tbo man who wants to provide himself a homo
in an easy way, and make a settlement where he
can live in prosperity and independence in a cli
mate PERFECTLY HEALTHY.
No case of fever ever having been known to ocS
cur in this settlement. It is not like going to the
backwoods of the West, among perhaps intollerant
people, where there is no society, churches, or
schools, where the price of land is high, aud where
the emigrant, after being used to the healthiest
climate in the world, has to endere sickness and
pain, and perhaps ruins his health and that of his
family. But hero is a thriving settlement having
three tSwns, containing churchcs,.schools, hotels,
stores, saw mills, grist mills, and everything de
sired. There is a cash market at hand. The lum
ber trade last year amounted to over two hundred
million feet of lumber. In a short tiine, owing to
the coal, it will still become more valnable,' as a
number of iron works and manufactories will soon
be started ; they are at present starting them ex
tensively at Warren. Even for thoso who do not
wish'to go there, the payments are such that they
ean easily buy a farm to" save' their rising families
from want in flic future; or to gain a competence
by the rise which will take place in tbo value of
lands By an outlay scarcely missed, a substan
tial provision can be made

remedy is no quack nostrum, but is prepared from
the recipe of a regular physician, who during a
practice of twenty-live years, used it with unpar
alleled success. It is a combination of expecto
rant remedies, simple in their character and used
by every educated physician. It is easily taken,
produces no nausea or other disagreeable effects,
and gives almost immediute relief. In this ever
