4-A short time
after the commission of the murder, &
negro named Montz was taken into custo
dy at Pittsburg by the proper authorities
and brought hither and committed to jail,
to be held as a witness. "We do not know
what was expected to be proved by him ;
but it is beyond dispute that he was kept
carofully locked till last Court, a period
of about five months, Ia course of time
the case came on witness after witness
was called and examined the lawyers
made their pleas, and the jury arrived at
their verdict; but during the entire six
days proceedings, not once was the ne
gro's presence' ia Court required, and at
the end of the trial his prison-door was
thrown open and he told to walk forth.
'tie walked forth, rejoiced that be was
onco more a freo man, at liberty to come
and go as he. might, choose, but borne
down to the earth by the consciousness
that his long and tedious confinement had
not furthered in the slightest degree the
ends of justice. To add still further to
his load of misfortune, upon presenting
his claiui for witne93-fees to the County
Commissioners, that board refused pay
ment of the same unless it was allowed
that they should first deduct therefrom a
certain amount to be charged to the ac
count of subsistence! The poor fellow
took the view that the subsistence with
which he was sought to be charged was
not of his own seeking that he was a
boarder by compulsion in the Hotel de
Lock-up, and that those who placed him
in the position which he occupied should
of right foot the bill. Which strikes us
as being an eminently practical and common-sense
view. The board continued
inexorable on the point; so the negro,
not caring to take the half-loaf extended
him in lieu of the whole loaf due him,
placed his bill in the hands of a lawyer
for collection, and - then unceremoniously
departed, doubtless with respect for the
law, especially as it is made to apply to
witnesses in Cambria county, considerably
Book Notice. "The Valley of the
Conemaugh" is the title of a new book
just brought out by Thomas J. Chapman.
It is a neat little volume of 202 pages.
Its scope, as we gather from the preface,
is to give "an historical and descriptive
account of the Valley of th9 Conemaugh,
which embraces the county of Cambria
and a portion of the counties of Somerset,
Indiana and Westmoreland." The sub
ject matter may be eaid to bo a collation
and condensation of the moat interesting
facts, figures and traditions going to make
up the history of the Valley. After a ge
ographical and general description there
of, we have a condensed yet very minute
history of tho various Indian troubles
having a bearing on the subject; the rise
andprogress of the different towns, villa
ges and settlements, with the names of
those who pioneered the footsteps of civ
ilization into these' western wilds; the
history, among other public thorough
fares, of those two monuments of the en
terprise and energy of our fathers, the
Alleghany Portage Railroad and the
Pennsylvania Canal; the magnitude of
our manufacturing and industrial inter
ests, with brief descriptions of the most
prominent producing enterprises; togeth
er with other sketches historical, descrip
tive, statistical and biographical. On
every page are evidences to be found of
deep research amongthe musty records
of the past, while the whole 13 skillfully
inked together so as to form a connected
narrative or history, which cannot fail to
prove interesting to such as are lovers of
antique remembrances, and to those fond
of contrasting our present greatness with
our one-time weakness and insignificance.
There are but few, we venture to say, that
have not at one time or another felt the
want of a clear and correct'eondensation,
in form convenient for reference, of im
portant facts and statistics having bear
ing on our earlier history as & community.
This want is experienced in the course of
common conversation as it is experienced
in attempted local' historical writiug. If
it served no other good- end, the book
would be valuable in that it embodies in
concise form these very facts and statis
tics collects and preserves them that
they may readily be found when wanted.
But it is valuable beyond this,. for it will
introduce the people of the Valley one to
the other, make plain the tie3 which con
nect them as brothers, and so show the
mutual relations which should exist be
tween them. Its mission will thus be
eminently beneficent and humanizing;
and when we remember that the world at
large, through it, will see and take knowl
edge of the fact that the natural advanta
ges of the Valley are infinitely greater
than those of most other sections, we are
led to expect that the purely practical re
sults which it will achieve will not bo of
small importance. We notice a few er
rors of fact in the book. -To instance :
On page 72, it is stated that a newspaper
was established in Kbensburg about the
year 1816, which was ealled the Cambria
Gazette whereas the paper was called
the Olive Branch, the Gazette not being
established till 1824. And on the same
page, the population of Ebensburg ia set
down at l;000whereas her population
was greater than the figure given five
years ago, and must surely be in the neigh
borhood of 1,500 now. But in the main,
the statements mad e and figures given are
believed to be correct.
The book is for sale by James Murray,
Ebensburg. Price $1.25.

less took notice, no paper was issued from

omission is to be found in the fact that

passed off pleasantly hereabout, though
no special festivities marked either their
incoming or outgoing.. ..We direct atten
