LOH INCEEASING AND EXTENDING THE VIECCLA
TION OF TIIE
"The experiment has been tried, and it is sum
eicntly proved," that a newspaper can be supported
in Huntingdon county. Nearly eight years ago the
publication of the JOURNAL" was commenced
under circumstances the most unpropitious. By
some it was whispered that it would "follow in the
footsteps of its predecessors"—go down, as did other
papers started here, by reason of mismanagement
and neglect. Others sood aloof, and looked upon
the enterprise with an eye of suspiscion and distrust.
Its founder and late editor, however, launched his
frail bark upon the " tempestuous ocean of experi
ment," and soon had the satisfaction of knowing
that he had weathered the storm and succeeded in
placing his feet upon terra firma.
Although little exertion has been made, the sub
scription list has more than doubled itself since the
commencetnent; and notwithstanding the severe
pressure of the times ever since we assumed the
editorial chair, it has steadily increased and is yet
increasing in numbers. Thus encouraged, we have
purchased new type &e, and improved the the ap
pearance of our paper, so that we are now enabled
to present the neatest and most beautiful paper ever
published in Huntingdon county or the region
We believe not only that our old friends are de
termined to stand by us, but that there are many
others, who, if solicited, would cheerfully extend
their support to their own county paper, knowing
that it will be vastly to their advantage to do so.—
For this purpose we have issued this prospectus,
hoping that our friends in the different villages and
townships of the county, will use their influence to
extend our circulation by procuring new subscribers.
We have gone to considerable expense to improve
and beautify the "Journal," and to obviate objec
tions to it. We now promise still further improve
ment as soon as our circumstances will permit us to
Our intention is to make the "Journar' etnphati
catty a FAMILY ri E PA PER-an ever welcome ve
hicle for the conveyance of interesting and useful
information to every• circle. Wo are prepared to
spread Intdligence from every quarter of the habita
ble globe before our readers weekly, as well as from
every section of our own nation, state and county.
Being in the monthly receipt of the best lierary pub
lications in the country, we can also furnish much
of the choice Literature of the day. The Farmer,
ever the bone and sinew" of the Republic, will find
his interests attended to, under the head of Agricul
ture and the cause of Religion, of Morality, and
of 7'emperance shall not tallier, while at the same
time we devote a corner of our paper to Antueernent.
The "Journal is now the only paper published at
the "Scat of Justice" of the great county of Hunt
ingdon; and there is no probability that there will
be any other for a long time to come. Time has
been when other papers were put forth here, and
political warfare was then carried on to an alarming
extent, which proved to a certain degree destructive
of the peace and happiness of our citizens. That
time, however, is past, and we trust the scenes of
excitement and violence then witnessed may never
again be re-enacted in our midst. Experience has
taught us all that no good can result from extrava
gant political wrangling and personal vituperation.
We no not wish to be understood to assume nen
„nal ground for our future course.—The "Journal”
will, as heretofore, maintain Whig principles with
all FAlnyEbs and in MODERATION, as we believe the
welfare of our common country to depend upon the
success of those principles. Believing thus, wo will
continue the humble but steadfast advocate of the
Whig cause "through sunshine and through storm"
-through success and through defeat. And Alio'
on the Presidential question, our personal predilec
tions are strongly in favor of the great champion of
our creed—Hersh r C1,11......3 - et we shall yield our
full and hearty support to the nominee of the Whig
National Convention, should that body, in its wis
dom, select some ono of the other distinguished
Statesmen whose names have been mentioned in
connection with the Presidency of the United States.
In short, no.efforts on our part shall be wanting
to make the "Journal" what a newspaper ought to
le —a messenger of inestimable value to the Former,
Mechanic, 3fanufucturcr, Nerchard, and all Dual
7108 CIUSSC.3 whatsoever.

On Saturday the 27th ult., Mr. Wise, the cele
brated - -Eronaut, made his fortieth mittt ascension
hi a balloon, front the centre square in the Borough
of Carlisle. We learn from the "Herald land Ex
positor" that it produced all that stirring excite
ment which might be expected from the announce
ment of so novel and rare a spectacle. It made the
27th of May a perfect gala day in that ancient and
goodly borough, which will never be forgotten by the
inhabitants, who we have always considered pecu
liarly fond of the marvellous. From all quarters
could be seen coming, in vehicles, heavily freighted
with precious cargoes of men, women, and children,
while troops of horsemen approached the town
through every avenue—extra trains of ears came
whirling along the railroad filled with passengers
from the upper and lower end of Cumberland coun
ty, until the usually "quiet village" of Carlisle exhi
bited the crowd, excitement, hurry and bustle of a
great metropolis. _ _
The "Herald and Expositor" continues Mean
time, within the amphitheatre which had been tem
porarily erected in the public square for the purpose,
and with aconsidemble crowd collected around him
to examine the procesa, the /Eronaut was busily en
gaged in the work of inflating his balloon. By two
o'clock this had been completed, and preparations
for the ascension commenced. The inflated tura
stet moved to and fro in its aspirations to cleave the
air and soar aloft. The signal at length was given
—the venturous .Eronaut took his place in the car
—the cords were unloosed which confined him to
the earth, and with the bound of an arrow he shot
upward from the midst of the multitude, to soar in
a purer and more ethereal sphere. The hearty ac
claim of a thousand voices rent the air as he rapidly
ascended from the view of the spectators, and ascen
ded higher and still higher into the boundless sea of
azure, until at last the immense balloon seemed to
the eye "no bigger than a man's hand," and was
finally lost to view entirely. The assemblage then
quietly dispersed, our visitors prepared to depart to
their homes, and in a few hours after our town had
resumed its usual staid and orderly aspect. So en
ded a great day in Carlisle; one which will be long
remembered with satisfaction by all who shared in
the exciting scenes of the occasion.
The following narrative from the pen of Mr.
W me. addressed to Mr. E. BEATTY, Editor of the
Carlisle "Herald and Exptsitor," we extract from
that paper of Wednesday late, It will be found
Sin:—My fortieth !Erbil Excursion made from
your borough on Saturday last, V 441.4 the most pleas
ing to me of all my adventures ; and from the enli
vened manifestations of the multitude without, and •
the audience within the arena, the gratification was
evidently mutual. When I left the arena, at 2
o'clock, 35 minutes, the lower current of Wind in
clined N. of E., moving at a moderate velocity.—
Having started with but a few pounds of ascensive
power, the ascent was slow. For several miles I
kept up a conversation with the inhabitants below,
and a number of persona mounted on horses, kept
in clew pursuit. Although the Balloon appeared
to travel slow, still, after a short chase, my eques
train friends wore distanced within five miles of the
borough. At 3 o'clock, 10 minutes, I passed on the
south side of Mechanicsburg, having also attained
the height of about a mile, and still ascending.—
When at a considerable heighth above the clouds, I
found the current of wind much stronger and mov
ing in the direction of S. of E.; the clouds beneath
moving at nearly right angles with the direction of
the Balloon. During this part of the voyage, I en
joyed the most extensive and magnificent view that
I have ever beheld, embracing in one view, the towns
of Lancaster, York, Carlisle, Harrisburg, and all the
intermediate villages, making over 40 in number.—
Upon the beauty and appearance of the Cumberland
Valley, with the rich and luxuriant landscape along
I either side of the Susquehanna, expanding wide iu
every direction, I will not attempt to descant—it
must be witnessed to be appreciated. Although
the Creator endowed man to enjoy this sublime pri
vilege, he has not endowed my bumble capacity
with language adequate to express its grandeur. In
viewing this scene of glory, I was forcibly struck
with the idea that we arc not of near no much im
portance, in the eyes of the Deity, as man presumes
himself to be—at all events, not more su to the
Creator, than the minutest insect is to man. And
now, in reference to the puerile fanaticism of "
lerism," I will only remark, that the world, clothed
with her elementary garb, looked so young and so
beautiful, that so far front having the appearance of
decay or committing suicide by elementary self
destruction, she looked more like a gay' and bloom
ing maiden, emerging from the days of inno
cence into sober womanhood. If any of the follow
ers of Mr. Miller, doubt it, let them go aloft en a fine
sunnner'a day, and view the earth, and if then, they
don't abandon such nonsensical views, nor feel
ashamed of their narrow conceptions of the great
ness and goodness of the Creator, they must, indeed,
be weak in the spirit, as well as in the flesh.
At 3 o'clock, 20 minutes, I passed over a vast
body of clouds, which reflected the sun powerfully
on the Balloon, causing it to rise to a great height
above them, and obscuring from my view, Harris
burg, and to the south, as far as York, the whole of
the river scenery. The current below, however,
being nearly at right angles wills the current above,
I soon cleared the atmosphere of the cloudy obstruc
i non. My course now, continued down the west
side of the river, until I reached the mouth of Code
rus creek, when I crossed the river obliquely in a
direction over Marietta. Having at the commence.
ment of the voyage, resolved to go to Lancaster, I ac
cordingly kept in the upper current, as the lower
would have carried me over Harrisburg, and in the
direction fur Lebanon. At 4 o'clock, I passed over
the tuwn of Marietta, in a direct line fur Lancaster.
At i 0 minutes before 5, .1 commenced a rapid de
scent, being at a point about a mile S. W. of the
I city, and calculating that the lower cum in would
carry mac into the city ; hut' found on nearing the
. earth, that the current below had subsided, so that
my descent was nearly perpendicular; and the rig

surrounding buildings, and on trial, found the Bal

rise again in majestic grandeur. The enthusiasm of
my friends was not only lavished upim the beauty of
the scene, but in their kindness, they also inflated
my collapsed money bag, which I trust, I can as
duly appreciate, as it was kindly (and to inc unex

The June number of this excellent monthly has
been on our table for several days past. It is em
bellished with several splendid engravings; butcon
tains no plate of Fashions, for the most wonderful
and almost incredible reason that there are no new
fashions for the month of June. The contents are,
as usual, contributions from the pens of the most
gifted writers in the country.
The page usually allotted to a plate of Fashions
is taken up by a beautiful engraving—" The Angel's
Visits"—consisting of four views: the sleep of the
infant; the mother guarding her sick child; the
mother's grief for her dying babe; and the angel
bearing her child to heaven, as revealed by faith to
the bereaved mother. The whole is illustrative of
the following lines.
From the Lady's Book for Jane 1941
THE ANGEL'S VISITS.
BY "Ins. s. J. HAL.
The earth Wag at rest t'Jbl the evening air
Seem'a like breath of the Infant sleeping;
And the stars stole forth like fancies fidr,
That come in the light of the mother's prayer,
When Love is her igils keeping.
But the mother felt, in her trembling breast,
That the Angel's presence was o'er her;
And she shook with a nameless fear distresa'd,
As she bow'd, like a reed by the dews oppress'd,
To guard the dear babe before her.
The clouds gather'd dark, as a funeral pall,—
The midnight wintlF. , were sighing,
And the mother's tears like rain-drops fall;
She 'lath heard the soft tone of the Angel's call,
And she knows that her babe is dying.
The sun is bright in the morning sky,
As when its first smile was given;
And' the Angel soars to his home on high,
While faith reveals, to the mother's eye,
That he bears her sweet child to heaven!

The United States Gazette of the 29th ult. eon
tains it lengthy Communication from Messrs. Walker
and Kendall, of the Philadelphia High School, giving
further cold:Wiens touching the course of the late
comet. The editor, in calling attention to it says:
The ast roamers of Europe appear to have been no
less vigilant in regard to this strange visitor, than
were the gentlemen of the Philadelphia High
School ; and it is a source of pride to Philadelphia,
that in the most important results in which they
generally concur, the Philadelphians were original
in their calculations. It will be seen that new and
important results have been reached.
'disc paradox mentioned in our paper of the 19th
ult., has been explained in a plain and simple
manner, and the short period of 21 78 years, sug
gested in our paper of the 11th ult., has been com
pletely and conclusively established.
The comet will return in December, 1864, and
will afford a more splendid spectacle than it did in
March last. It must be recollected, that the ciscov
cry of the short period belongs to the High School
Observatory and observers. No other quarter had
furnished even a surmise, when it was announced
by us, and we may add, that no other source yet
heard from, but the High School observatory, could
have furnished observations numerous enough and
nice enough to form the basis of their domonstra.

More Cancelled Treasury Notes.
Several Treasury Notes, which, upon examina

This Mr. beau Benny, it seems, had paid scattering
attentions to Miss Curtis, " off and on," for fourteen
yaars—that is, from 1524 to 1838—sometimes hap
pening in rather often, and then staying away for
two or three years. He seems to have been very
cool and considerate about the matter all through,
and the only thing like a promise, proved against
hint, was the following postscript to a very pious
though not at all amorous letter:
N. B. As to matrimony, it doesn't bear with
much weight at present on my mind."
For this promise! the Jury assessed BenjaMin
(who has since married another woman) $2OO and
costs! This is hard. A young man makes him

long years, and t e las to pay $2OO into the

lattice, out of parts of Jefferson, Clearfield and Mc-
Kean—well known as the "wild cat region" of
Pennsylvania. We had nearly forgotten it ourself,
and have just had it revived in our recollection by a
paragraph in the last Clearfield Banner. In point
of territory, the new county exceeds many of the
older ones of the Commonwealth; but in the matter
of population it is not remarkably crowded, unless
we take the denizens of the woods--the panthers,
foxes, deer and wild cats—into the reckoning. The
contest for the county seat of the new county of
Elk, seems to be between Elk Creek and Gibson
township. The area of the county will consist of
about ten miles off of JetTerson, the whole southern
projection of McKean as it appears on the map, and
a choice slice off Clearfield, the county seat of which,
in running the line of boundary, must not he ndh
preached nearer than fifteen miles. The new coun
ty organization commences on the first of September
next, and after that comes the tug. Getting a law
for a new county is not half so hard as sustaining
its expenses by taxation, with a sparse population
and no great surplus of wealth among even that!
