that they intended to haie iho $BOO. balance of

Broad Top.—k groat many of tho, contrac
tors have commenced work along the line, and
the road is progressing rapidly. Soon wo may
expect to hoar the whistle of the Broad Top

of the first coal train.

And the itemizer of the Standard "surren

by whom ho was held in the most 'abject sub

Camp ifeeting.—Never do we recollect see

the ono now being held near Alexandria.—
"Every body and all their friends" appear to
be in attendance. We have no doubt it will
be productive of much good, as large numbers
are making a public profession of religion.
Too Good to be Lost.—A gentleman from
Harrisburg, the other day inquired for the
bridge against which the "humble instrument"
"knocked out his brains." Ho was answered
by a bystander, as fellows;—"I Can show you
the pier and one abutment. As to the 'knock.
ing' it may be so, but I don't know about the
brains, I think it would be rather hard to knock
brains out of a pumpkin.
er S. S. Wharton, who failed to secure a
re-nomination from the Whigs of Huntingdon,
announces himself as an independent candidate
for the Legislature. Wo hope the Whigs of
that district will give him a lesson at the elec•
tion that will give him satielisctory proof of the
estimation in which disorganizers are held.—
Lewistown Gazette.
The Whigs of old Huntingdon are not easily
'bamboozled by a few disorganizers and inter•
ested locofucos. Our friend of tne Gazette ;
may rest assumed his hope will be fulfilled.

Ames and James C. Hall, late postmaster of

with a • pistol, so that at the last accounts his
life was despaired of. Ames was arresten iu
front of his own house, while swearing vche.

searching him, four double barrelled pistols
were found, three of which were loaded, be

Franklin's Paper in Philadelphia,
This paper, published and edited by Benja
min Franklin, first made its appearance im
December 24, 1728. It was first calkd "The
Universal Instructor in all the Arts and Scien
ces," which title was afterwards changed to the
running notice, "Containing the freshest advi
ccs, foreign and domestic." Franklin eolith'.
ued the paper weekly until 1765, when it passed
necessarily into several other hands, and final'y
expired in 1804, in the 76th year of its ego.—
The paper changed much in all these years, in
size, paper, and editorials. Its size, at first,
was that of as eight by ten. The . paper was
thin, yellowish, and coarse. Its price was ten
dollars a year, and in matter there was little
variety. Tales, poems, fables, with a little fin ,
eign news, several months old, were all it could
set forth. The advertisements now seem odd
and out of date, and no one could 6ial the pls.
cos to which they refer. Persons leaving the
Europe are spoken of as inkfuling for Europe,
and a cargo of negroes, just arrived, are duly
advertised, and persons wanted to look at the
cargo. Altogether, the sheet, in its best estate,
would not equal any village sheet which our
country now produces.
gondent of the Tribune calculates that death
and emigration have removed 36,149 persons
mere from Great Britain in the three months
ending June nth, than have been born within
the same period. by so much diminishing the
population. The previous quarter showed a
diminution of 30.000.
of June, a locomotive was run for the first time
five miles on the Egyptian Railroad, much to
the astonishment of the Bedouins, who gallop
ed along side on their fleet horses fur some time
until they found they had no chance of keeping
pace with the locomotive.
ROL DAvsn OUTLAW.—The Raleigh Degig.
ter of Saturday, claims the re-election of this
gentleman over Mr. Shaw, his Locofoco oppo
nent. It says:—"we elates on the authority of
the Goldsboro' Patriot, (hero,) the Election of
Outlaw by 18 majority. Close shaving, that."

naIitTEIBMG, Jan. 22. 1851.
DL•. Hewes, Dcnr Sir have sold a mon
ber of boxes of Cooper's Vegetable Compound
Fever nod Ague Pills, (prepared by you.)—
Every person who I have heard speak of them,
since purchasing, says that they performed a
complele cure ii► three days.
one individual who purchased a box of me,
said he had no hopes of its curing Idol, as he
had had chills and fever for full three years,
with slight intermissions, and had tried all the
popular remedies of the day, without success,
and had given a great deal of money to Phy
sicians also—but these Pills had been so
strongly recommended to him, that ho thought
ho would try them. Much to his surprise, he
was cured in three days; butexpecting it would
come back, ho never called on me until three
or four months afterwards, when ho acknowl
edged ho believed it was a perfect cure. For
my own part, I do honestly believe they aro
the best medicine ever discovered for the cure
of Fever and Ague. Yams &c.,
This celebrated medicine is for sale at Read's
Drug Storo, Huntingdon.
Thousands of Parents who use Vcrtnifitge com
posed of Castor oil, Calomel, &e., are not sworn,
that whilo they appear to benefit tho patient, they
are actually laying the foundations for a series of
diseases, such as salivation, loss of eight, weak
noss of limbs, 8:e.
In another column will ho found the advertise
ment of Hobonsack's Medicines, to which wo ask
the attention of all directly intorostod in their own
as well as their Children's health. In Liver
Complaints and all disorders arising from those
of a billions type, should make its° of the only
genuine medicine, Hobonsack's Liver Pills.
^"Lie not Deceived," but ask for Ilobenstick's
Worm Syrup and Liver Pills, and observe that
each has the signature of the Proprietor, J. N.

it in the hands of his sons. The author has devo

has offered to the world nt the merely nominal
price of 25 cents. the fruits of some twenty years

• A Presbyterian clergyman in Ohio, in writing
of "Hunter's Medical Manual," says:—
"Thousands upon thousands ofour youth, by evil
example and the influence of the passions, have
been led into the habit of self-pollution without
realizing the sin and consequence upon them
selves and their posterity. Tho constitution of
thousands, who are raising families have been
enfeebled, if not broken down, and they do not
know tho cause or the cure. Any thing that
can ho done so to enlighten and influence tho
public mind as to cheek, and ultimately to re
move this wide-spread source of human wretch
edness, would confer the greatest blessing next
to the religion of Jesus Christ, on the present and
coming generation. Intemperance, (or the use
of intoxicating drinks,) though it has slain thou
sands upon thousands, is not a greater scourge to
the human nice. Accept my thanks on behalf
of the afflicted, and, believe me, your co-worker
in the good work you arc so actively ongaged-jn."
