Snow Go 1 Our Branch train, after
an absence from this terminus of the road
of a round two weeks, succeeded in dig
ging its way back here through the snow
on Saturday night. So far, very good.
We thought our trials and tribulations in
a snowed-up point of view surely at an
end. But, in honor of the event, the ele
ments got up a grand entertainment on
Sunday, entirely regardless of expense,
with the result that on Monday mor
ning, when the train attempted its reg
uiar trip, u was no go. Tea road was

for another protracted isolation from the

it human nature can stand anything, ex
ceptmg, perhaps, eastor-oil and tight
boots. But, dammitall ! of how much in
convenience, and annoyance, and down
right embarrassment is not ihis state of
affairs the cause ! Our friends in the
lowlands, where avalanches and hurricanes
are unknown, and where communication
is never cut off by a freak of tho Weather
Clerk, can have no true conception of the
extent of the affliction.
"Blockade runners, in the shape of
sleigh-hacks, will continue to transport
the mails and passengers to" arid from
Cresson till the road is opened up.
Corn Husks. -An Austrian patent
for the manufacture of paper from corn
husks has been introduced into this coun
try, through the instrumentality of which
it is expected paper can be produced at
much lower rates than those now govern
ing the article. The control of the pat
ent, so far as concerns the manufacture of
printing paper, is in the hands of the As
sociated Press, who solicit proposals for
the furnishing of sound, dry husks, free
from dirt and nubbins the husks to be
baled in even hundreds of pounds, and
delivered at railroad stations. Mr. Jos.
fenowden, of Pittsburg, i3 agent to pur
chase these huskd for the Western Asso
ciated Press. Those of our farmers having
any to sell should write him, immediately,
stating the number of pounds they can
furnish, and at what price per hundred
Cambria Mining Company. A bill
has been introduced into the State Legis
lature to incorporate a company under the
above name, style and title, with a Capital
of cne million dollars, and with J. Warren
Body, James E. Southwortb, Wm. H.
Story, John J. Tyler, and Edward Quin
tard as incorporators, to open and mine
the coal, iron ore, oil, and other minerals
in the lands belonging to the Company in
Cambria county, and to dispose of the same
by sale cr lease, and also to build a rail
road not exceeding ten miles in length to
connect with the Pennsylvania Railroad.
This is the company which recently pur
chased the "Burket Farm' in Jackson
township, the development of the valuable
mineral deposits of which is the chief
point in view in this application for in
corporation. Not Dead ! Some time last-summer,
we made tue announcement in tnese col
umns, on what was regarded good author
ity, that Mr. Thomas P. Dumm, of the
9ih Pa. Cav., and a resident of Cambria
county, had been killed in a battle in the
Southwest. We are glad to be able now
to contradict this, and say that Mr. D. was
not killed. He was taken prisoner by the
rebels in the engagement, however, and is
at this time an inmato of a rebel prison in
Georgia. A letter has been received from
him, eaying he is well. His many friends
will be glad to read this announcement.
Railroad Accident. On Saturday
last, the locomotive attached to the local
freight train on the Penna. Railroad ex
ploded at Wilmore, this county, while
taking water. The engineer, Mr. Joseph

The Draft. Now that the Peace fal

the people of Cambria county going to
work with a will to put in their quota
under the impending draft. The time
remaining in which this may be done is
short. Prompt and energetic action is
Seeing that the discussion of the peace
question has almost totally stopped vol
unteering of late, the time for the draft
may be extended, so as to allow of an ef
fort upon the part of the people to fill up
our armies by voluntary enlistment. It
were safer, however, to be governed by the
belief that the time will not be extended,
and to act accordingly.
The quotas of the different sub-districts.
have not yet been promulgated, but a very
close approximation to the correct figures
may be arrived at by dividing the whole
number enrolled in each sub-district-by
four. One in four will be about the pro
portion of men required. '
Deer. The Altoona Tribune says that
deer are exceedingly plenty in the moun
tains in that neighborhood the present
winter. Old hunters Fay they are of a
different species from the deer usually
found there larger, and with different
shaped antlers. The theory is thatj be
coming wearied of was alarms, they have
left the mountains of Virginia and jour
neyed in this direction in quest of peace
and good pastures.

BLOOD PURIFIER !
'lnia giuat internal remedy is the best med

Dyspepsia, and as a Blood Purifier, ic has no
equal for all diseases arising from aa impare

complaints and all break-outs on the face or

which formerly have been used for those dis
eases were merely temporary in their effects,
and of doubtful virtue, but the RHEUMATIC
COMPOUND reaches the source of all trouble,
and effectually banishes the disease from the
system by its immediate action on the blood.
We advise one and all to give it a trial, and

Mr. R. E. Sellers It is from a sense of
duty, as well as with great pleastlre, that I
bear testimony to the virtue of your justly
celebrated Vermifuge. I procured a tingle
bottle, and gave it to three of my children,
who had been ill tor several weeks. The el

the youngest eighteen months. The first
passed fifty-six worms, the second forty-seven,

been doing well, and are now in good health.
