Wednesday Morning, 3'nly A. 1869
Tate Ire BROAD Toe.—Last week we took
m trip over the Huntingdon is Broad Top Rail•
toad, to the town of Hopewell, in company
with quite to number of our fellow-citizens
and pesona from other porte of the country.
We started about 10 o'clock, from the depot
too Allegheny street, and to the soul cheering
notes of " Hail Columbia,;' discoureed by our
Excelsior Band, our hearts beat time, and our
spirits rose as we went flying up the valley, as
gently bottle along as a child is wafted to the
land of dreams, in its easy cradle. Whilst we
are on our journey we will the opportuni
ty of throwing in a word or two relative to the
condition and management of this road.
The Broad Top Railroad is one of the moat
substantially built and pleasant roads to travel
on, iu this or any other State. The bridges
are built on the latest and beet plane for dorn•
bility and' strength ; the trestle work is firm as
'the mountains which surround it, and the ex
cavations and embankments all right. At pro.
ant it is enjoying an unusual amount of pas.
senger travel—this being the safest and near•
eat route to Bedford Springs—and the hun
dreds of tons of coal which are daily brought
over it indicate a molt thriving condition. An.
other, and we may say the sign of prosperity is
the promptitude with which the Company pays
off all its employees, etc.
This flattering condition of the road is ow•
ing to the good management of its einem—
It is unnecessary for us to say a word com•
mendatory of the worthy Superintendent, J. J
Lawrence, E.g. The Company have secured
is him one of the ablest, most obliging, and
attentive officers, to be met with any where.
Uuder his supervision, there has not been a
single accident of .y moment, any delaying
of trains, or any matter of serious consequence
occurred. But we must stop hero, as the lo
comotive', whistle sounds for Hopewell, and
our "sound" eounductor Gum Morrison, calls
oat the station. Guru is a prince of good fel.
lowa, and a great favorite with all—especially
the ladies.
After spending an hour very plesaantly, we
started on cur return, stopping at the hand
some little village of Saxton for a crowd of
passengers, among whom was a bevy of fair
ones ; and of course we counted ourself in,
itejoyiug ourself accordingly, in eo u v e r.mi o g,
seta we reached home again.
Wt.' ma Sal VcD FICAL—In our reran'
belittlens through the streets, we see and heal
little matters of news, which we shall string
together like "snits," and give to our readers
to swell on. The music in the Town Hall, the
other evening, by the String Band, was incom•
paralole ; the performers are v ell skilled in the
soothing art.—Soma of the plug uglier of
our village indulged in a free tight on Wednes•
day evening last, near the post office, which re•
stilted in the lodgment cf one of the parties in
prison.---Our Meseta are brilliantly lighted
at night by gas lamps, and our good citizens
appear to be quite pleased with the novelty of
the thing, notwithstanding the hard fioht they
had to got the "town daddies " to adopt the
good and seneikle meaeure.---Our townsman
Cramer, is having a beautiful portion put up at
Die new dwelling. The foundation and steps
are marble, and when completed will be very
bandeome.—We love to see a pretty yard
in which flowers are growing, and vines wind
ing up the porch. Why don't all our citizens
emulate Miss Prue Jackeon, in making their
premises beautiful with sweet flowers.—The
vaults in coarse of erection at the Court House
in which the records of the county will be pia
eed for safe keeping, will be completed about
the latter part of this month.—An individu•
al is town, the other evening when peening
where some ladies were sitting, to chow hie
good breeding, mimicked an expression made
use of by one of the party. We happened to
be passing at the time, and thought, in a stran
ger, we bad never omen a surer token of the
polished—poppy. —Loot Wedneaday won a
remarkable cold day for the season ; some of
our citizens were indulging in the luxury of a
rousing fire. To day it feels very much Hoe a
young Purgatory, and our collars droop to the
withering heat.—We hear some talk of form•
in a new aver company in town, to be called
the Campbell Rifles ; we hope that the idea
will be carried out. We have the material, rill
that ie lacking is some patriotic spirit to talce
the lead.—We saw a couple of fancy choice
on Saturday, manufactured by one of our lead•
log attorney., who spends hie leisure moments
le exerciee in his own carpenter shop. They
are as 11, !some pieces of mechanism as can
be man, .rtured in any place, and are not the
only articles he has turned out.
lerSpring has brought out a new style of
dress. Cloaks and furs have given place to
something else and something else will give
place to some other sort of a thing, probably not
so good and beautiful as the former.
Ladies head dresses are composed of natu•
cal hair, combed to suit the season, generally
with a backward wave and tied up with a rib.

An erect attitude is encouraged, and hoops

heat of the day, for the comfort of the children
who may accompany the flame de la maim on

SON STROM—The individual we noticed in
our last issue as having died front the effect of

working in the field, harvesting, when ho was
struck down.

desire that "this too solid flesh would melt," he
didn't think of such day. art last 'Thursday.
Tula* Ist ie vas ways,
BPROAD—On the fourth page of to.
day's paper, will be found a eplendid song, by
Prof. Drake. It is a striking contrast between
real merit and fourth•of Julyapread•eagleism.
It is fortunate for sophomore orators, stump
'peelers, Congressional declaimers, etc., of
this latter class, that Prosecuting Attorneysare
tolerant men, and do not have them indicted
for outrageous cruelty to the spread eagles.—
This highly respectable bird is compelled to
cut up all sorts of pranks, and appear in the
most ridiculous places without any regard to
the unities of time and place. One orator,
not to be outdone, has this eagle's feet "on the
highest peak of the Rocky Mountains, one
wing laved by the Atlantic and the other by
the Pacific oceans, his tail dipped in the Gulf
of Mexico, and hie beak in the open Polar
Sea." We think our Fourth of July orators
will have to give up spread eagles and take up
sums less pretending bird. If they don't come
down like Capt. SCUT T'S coon after that, they
are utterly hopeless.
ilsayssviso.—Now is the busy time of our
farmers in harvesting their grain. The weath•
er has been very propitious for this important
agricuhural operation, and much grass and I
grain were cut the past week, and front the ap.
pearnncc of the weather at the time this para.
graph is being written, the present week prom.
ices to be everything a farmer cauld wish for
cutting groin. The crop of wheat •ind in fact
all other grain in this county, promises more
than an average yield, notwithstanding the sup.
posed irreparable damage inflicted by the bard
frosts, the hail, the unusual amount of moist
weather, etc., etc. The wheat and rye fields
are rapidly " going under," and although it is
' something unusual, we hear of no complaints
of either fly weevil or blight from our country
friends. The earn is looking up finely, and in
the language of our friend Stewart, bids us
hope for a " stupendous " yield,
forlorn looking Celt. on Saturday last, WOO so
Gar overcome by the heat of the sun or flaming
reiFeye whisky, that he was compelled to lie
down on the railroad track, on the embank•
ment below town, about the time the pnsseu•
ger train was due. We happened to be in that
neighborhood at the time, and observing him
idea vored to get hint off tho trick ; wo got
him on his feet, hut he proved too much for
our physicals, and down he went, thump,
thumping, 'nine twenty feet. Not wishing to
follow in" the footsteps of the Celt," and see•
ing that he wee safe and uninju-ed, we passed
on and "left him alone in his glory," just as
the ears came thundering on.
or. We notice in the Peoria papers, copious
extracts from an oration delivered in that c'ty
on tho Ith inst., by our former townsman, Wm.
McGalliard, Esq., now a resident of the former
city. It is spoken cf RS a masterpiece of elo.
quence, unsurpassed by any oration, delivered
on a similar occasion, in Peoria. Mr. Medal•
ird is s young man of brilliant attainment.,
and commanding talent i here, where we have
had an opportunity of judging, from his long
residence, he stands high, as a gentleman and
scholar. We are not surprised therefore, to
hear the encomium which are showered upon
him, by the press of his adopted home. It is
but a jusVoken of the universal respect gent
no receives tverywhere, in this,our harpy land.
B. SWOOPK, Muftis., Annexes.—Quite a
large meeting assembled in the Court House,
on Monday evening last, to hear Mr. Swoops
expatiate on the "History, Philosophy and Pa
etry of the Bible," notwithstanding, the notice
wait " not published in the Globe," and the
drum and fife were not pressed into service.--
14e are free to say that the" historical " part of
Mr. Swoope's subject, was very eloquent, and
decidedly the best. We thought we had heard
it before, and on examining our files, we find
Almost verbatim, the sawn thing in the address
delivered by B. McDivitt, Esq., before the
Huntingdon county Tenchers' I Institute, Dec.
22, '53, and published in the Journal, Feb. let ,
1854. The curious can see it by calling at our
office. Mr. Swoope is guilty of gross plagiar.
ism, and literary.theft...
HARVEST iIOMIC.—We have been spoken to
by several of our country friends, on the sub•
ject of having a general jollification at this
place, immediately after harvest, of farmers
and all others wishing to participate. The idea
it an excellent one, and we trust our agricultn•
rat friends who have taken the matter in hand
will carry out the project. See to it, friends.
