"IIiLD, PA., MARCH 14, 1860.
Attention Is directed to the advertisement
of Messrs. Melloy & Ford, of Fbiladelphia.
Cocbt. Next Monday the March Term of
ur Courts commences. No J urors being sum
moned, there will be do causes tried.
The attention of watermen is directed to the
advertisement of Leonard Tottingham, In an
other column of thi3 paper.
Several of our raftsmen returned home from
Marietta last evening. When they left the
latter place on Monday, but few rafts had
reached there, and no sales were known to
have been made.
Cocstt StPEBisTESDEST. The election for
County Superintendent of Common Schools
takes place on the first Monday of May next.
There will bo near a dozen of candidates for
the office in this county, and we may reasona
bly expect a warm contest. The salary is $000.
"Wild Cats seem to be plenty this winter in
the south part of our county. Mr. Abraham
N ivling, of Guelich township, we understand,
has killed nearly a dozen ot the "varmints."
Mr. Nivling is a successful hunter, and is, lit
raily, beyond all doubt, "death" on wolves,
panthers, and wild-cats.
Rafting was brought to a sudden stand-still
last Friday afternoon, in consequence of ah
extreme change in the atmosphere, and the
tailing of a small quantity of snow. Since
hen the weather has remained cold, with a
little snow falling every day. The water in
the River 13 too low for running rafts.
An Impostee. We see it stated in some of
our exchanges, that a young man, about 20
years of age, is traveling through eastern
Pennsylvania, representing himself as agent of
the American Tract Society. Kecent devel
opments prove that he is an impostor. It is
well enough to be on guard, as the fellow will
doubtless extend his operations.
U. S. Hotel, IIarrisqurg. We take plea
sure in recommending this hotel to the travel
ing public. It is one of the best kept houses
in the State, and every attention that is re
quired to make guests comfortable, is prompt
ly given. Messrs. Hartshorn and Ten Eyck
are clever landlords, a-nd will always have a
Urge run of custom. Their clerk is also an
accommodating and courteous gentleman.
How to keep Fcrs. As the time is coming
when our lady readers will lay aside their furs,
tfco following directions as to the best manner
of keeping them, may be of interest : Fine
furs should bo kept in a cold place. An ex
perienced dealer will tell, the moment ho puts
liia hand on a piece of fnr, if it has been lying
In a warm, dry atmosphere : it renders the fur
harsh and shabby, entirely destroying the
rich, smooth softness which it will have it
kept in a cold room.
Da. A. M. Hills, desires us to say that he
will be in his office in Clearfield, most of the
timKfrom the 1st of March till after the June
court; after which time, he expects to bo ab
sent for several months. Persons desiring his
services will do well to call on him before that
time. The Doctor has improved facilities for
putting up work, and does it in such a neat
and durable mariner, that he has obfained a
deservedly high reputation as a Dentist among
those for whom he has operated. m74t.
Rafts Staved. Wc understand that several
rafts were staved last week at different points
lower down on the River. Judge Moore had
one run on the rocks at Moshannon Falls, Dan
iel Bailey had two run against a pier at Queen's
Run, Robt. Owens had two on a sand-bar near
Sugar Island, Benj. Spackman had one run on
the head of Sugar Island, Reuben Moore had
one tuck on a rock at "Mother Moore's," and
Charley Worrell had one broken or cut loose
at Lock Haven. The
extent of the damage
dene, we have not learned.

The Old Court House.' What a history there
is embraced in thoso words ! But who will un-
aertaice to write it ? Who will undertake to
dig up the incidents and events that have
transpired in and around it, since the day in
which Robert Collins had the first stone laid
for it? Who can portray the hopes and fears,
the joys and sorrows, that may have been pro
duced by the proceedings that transpired with
in its walls during the third of a century that
.marks its existence? Their recital would be
listened to with more interest than the most
highly polished story of the novelist, and
might servo as a lesson from which the pres
ent generation could derive much profit.

Tf OSTETTER'S STO.IIACII HITTERS.
11 It is a fact that, at some period, every mem
her of the human family is subject to disease or
disturbance of the bodily lunctions; but, with the
aid of a good tonic and the exercise of plain com
mon sense, tney may be able so to regulate the sj's
tem as to secure permanent health. In order to ac
complish this desired object, the true eourse to pur
sue is certainly that which will produce a natural
state of things at the least hazard of vital strength
and life. For this purpose, Dr. llostetter has in
troduced to this country a preparation bearing his
name, which is not a new medicine, but one that
has been tried for years, giving satisfaction to all
who have used it. The BUtcrs operate powerfully
upon the stomach, bowels,1ind liver, restoring them
to a healthy and vigoroim action, and thus, by
the simple process of strengthening nature, ena
ble the system to triumph over disease.
For the cure of Dyspepsia, Indigestion. Nausea.
Fla tulency , Loss of Appetite, or Bi lious complaints,
arising from a -morbid inaction of the Stomach or
era Morbus, Ac., theso Bitters have no equal.
Diarrhoea, dysentery or flux, so generally con
tracted by new settlers, and caused principally by
tho change of water and diet, will be speedily reg
ulated by a brief use of this preparation. Dyspep
sia, a disease which is probably more prevalent
in all its various forms, than any other, and the
cause of which may always bo attributed to de
rangements of the digestive organs, can be cured
without fail by using HOSTET'f ER'S STOMACH
BITTERS, as per directions on the bottlo. For
this disease every physician will recommend Bit
ters of some kind; then why not uso an article
known to be infallible? All nations have their
Bitters, as a preventive of disease and etrcngthen-
cr of the system in general; and among them all
there is not to be found a more healthy people
than the Germans, from whom this preparation em
anated, based upon scientific experiments which
have tended to prove the value of this great pre
paration in the scale of medical science.
r ever asd Ague. Ihis trying and provoking
disease, which fixes its relentless grasp on the bo
dy of man, reducing him to a mere shadow in a
short time, and rendering him physically and men
tally useless, can be driven from the body by the
use of H OSTETTER'S RENOWNED BITTER'S.
Further, none of tho above-stated diseases can be
contracted, even in exposed situations, if the Bit
ters are used as per directions. And as they nei
ther create nausea nor oQend the palate, and ren
der unnecessary any change of diet or interrup
tion of rdinary pursuits, but promote sound sleep
and hcalty digestion, and the complaint is remo
ved a3 speedily as is consistent with the produc
tion of a thorough and permanent cure.
For Persons in Advanced Years, who are suffer
ing from an enfeebled consitntion and infirm body.
these Bitters are invaluable as a restorative of
strength and vigor, and need only bo tried to be
appreciated. And to a mother while nursing these
Bitters are indispensable, especially where the mo
ther's nourishment is inadequate to the demands
of the child, consequently her strength must yield,
and bore it is where a good tonic, such as Hostet
ter's Stomach Bitters, is needed to impart tempo
rary strength and vigor to the system. Ladies
should by all means try this remedy for all ca
ses of debility, and, before to doing, should ask
their physioian, who, if ho is acquainted with the
virtue of tho Stomach Bitters, will recommend
their use in all cases of weakness.
Caution. We caution tho public against using
any of the many imitations or counterfeits, but ask
for llostetter Celebrated Stomach Bitters, and see
that each bottle has the words ''Dr. J. llostetter 8
Stomach Bitters" blown on the side of the bottle,
and stamped on the metallio cap covering the cork,
and observe that our autograph signature is on the
label. tisPrepared and sold by llostetter & Smith,
Pittsburg, Pa., and sold by all druggists, grocers,
and dealers generally throughout the United
States, Canada, South America, and Germany.

FERRY. Brown,4lie leatlcr of the Insur
rection, found guilty of Murder atul Trea.wu '
the Ft 1 st degree. lhe above named 'insurrection'
caused a great deal of .gas to be let off by leading
politicians and the political press of this great
country, and in fact, the majority of tho people of
nil parties, were more or less excited 011 reading
the first account of the insurrection some of tho
papers trying to make political capital out of the
affair and others ranking light of tho matter. But
if it had been an Italian strike for Freedom a
gainst their lawful sovereign, led on by Matzinni
or Garibaldi, the Press of this country, with but
one exception, would call meetings anl pass reso
lutions and solicit subscriptions to aid them in
th'r so called patriotic work ; but amidst all this
inconsistency there is one man that is not- the least
interested in the fate of Brown or his companions,
and that one is Frank Short of the Short Shoe
Shop on Second street, where he will bo found at
all times ready and willing to wait upon perrons
calling on him for anything in tbe Boot, Shoe or
