WHAT We SEC AND Hain.—A number of
ma have been engaged for some time past in
putting in new tine on the Penn'a Railroad,
through our borough.—Last week we hail
several refreshing showers, which were badly
needed.—We noticed Chief Justice Lowrie
and also Hon. Levi Kline in town last week.--
Some boys of the genus "twee," amused them
selves on Friday last, in drowuing kittene in a
barrel of water on Mifflin street.—The or.
dinance of the Lord's Supper was administered
in the Presbyterian Church of this place, last
Sabbath.—Everybody in town should go to
the Springs at least once a week. We were
there last week, ar.d a "high old time" we had.
—Whoever was eo unfortunate as to lose a
eon,: r last Sabbath evening, can hear of it by
calling on we.— —The lady who favored us with
that hoquet last Monday, will please accept
our profoundest acknowledgments.---We chal
lenge the world to produce a better assortment
of girls than can be found in our town.—
We have been handed by a legal friend, the fol.
lowing anecdotes of the late Judge Burnside,
which he immures ins have never before been in
print On one occasion a very fat and a very
thin man stood at the entrance of the Court
Room, into which the Judge winked to pass.
He stopped a moment for them to make way,
but perceiving they were not inclined to move,
he pushed between them, exclaiming, "hero I
go, then, through thick and thin." Lawyer
Mc—, on another occasion, was engaged in
a cause before the Judge, and tormented a poor
German witness so much with questions, that
the old man declared he was so exhausted that
ho must have a drink of water before he could
say anything more. Upon this the Judgecalled
out to the teasing lawyer, "I thinlc, air, you
must have done with that witness now, for you
have pumped him dry."—Well arranged and
beautiful to behold is Mies ---'s flower basket.
--Some kind soul has sent us a box of itch
ointment, with a "Please notice." Having no
occasion to tent the qualities of the article at
present, of course we cannot pronounce upon
its virtues. We recommend the manufacturer
to send a little of it to our neighbor up town,
at he is afflicted with political scratches very
grievously. From the appearance of some of
our young gents' heads, they too might be ben
gar A letter from B. Bother Swoopo, Esq..
en closing one front Mr. McDivitt, addressed to
the President of the Standing. Stone Literary
Society of this place, has just been handed us,
in reference to the notice made by us of the
lecture on the Literature of the Bible, deliver
ed by him in this borough last week, in which
he positively denies having ever seen the ad
dress referred to, or ever having any knowledge
of eta existence until shown to him. We are
bound, of course, with this assurance, to make
the necessary correction, and regret having
dome him injustice, although the striking re
semblance between certain portions of the two
lectures meat remain to us entirely inexplica
t3ince penning the foregoing, we have recei.
ved the following card from Mr. McDivitt, and
it will perhaps bo more satisfactory to all par
ties than any explanation we can give, or any
thing else we can publish. It must be remem•
bored our assertion was based upon a mental
comparison of the two productions, one of
which, it now appears, resembles the other in
several particulars only as does one pail awn.
ter resemble another dipped from the same well.
For the Ifuntingdpit
Ma. Emelt —Upon a caraul examination
of that portion of my address delivered some
time since, and which was alleged by you to
have been appropriated by Mr. Swoope in his
lecture last week, I would say that although
there appears to be a singular aid almost un
accountable similarity existing between theta
as to style, order and language, enough per
haps upon a mere casual examination to war
rant your assertion, yet this resemblance is per
haps nothing m ore than might occur under eim•
liar circumstances, and having since been as
sured by Mr. Swoope of his entire ignorance
of the existence of my address, of which I am
well satisfied, I can only attempt to account
for it on the principle that the minds of great
men occasionally flow in the sante channel of
thought, giving place to the time ideas as well
an the same language. Hoping that this ex
planation may tie satisfactory to all potties, I
remain Yours truly, R. McDIVITT.

YOUNG MEN AND LADIES.—An exchange, in
noticing the fact that several of our cotempo
caries are reprimanding the young men of their
towns for standing on the street corners of
evenings and staring at the ladies as they pass,
says t--" Now we car. see no great evil in look
ing at the ladies as they pass; besides there is
no evidence that the Indio dislike to be looked
at. We think they rather like it of the two,
else why so often on the streets but to see and
be seen? We'll venture a dish of strawberries
and cream that if the young men were all out
of town fora month, there would be very few
young Indies' shoes want mending during that
One." Moro than likely.
Aar Hall's Journal of Health, which claims
to be high authority in medical science, has ta
ken a stand against married people sleeping to
gether, and thinks they had better sleep in ad
joining rooms. It says that kings and queens
do not sleep together, and why should other peo
ple? Well, Mr. Hall, if that arrangement suits
you, just practice it, and "dry up" your talk.
You needn't preach that doctrine in this "neck
o' woods," for it won't take. Just think of sep
arating a newly married couple on a winter
night, because Hall's paper says so! It's all
darned foolishness and we protest against any
thing of the kind.

HARVEST HOME.—We spoke last week of
the idea proposed by sume of our farmers of
a jubilee being held in this place, but as yet
have not heard if settled definitely.
Conte, ye thankful people, come,

All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin.

Ntiscritsr.—Wo understand that several boys
or young men living near this place, have been
prosecuted for stoning the ten o'clock passen•
ger train on the Pennsylvania Railroad, on
Wednesday last, immediately below town. It
i s stated that several windows in the engine
*ere broken, nod that the engineer was struck
on the head.
WARM Wxxxnxtt.—We have found it entire
ly too warm to attempt a weather article. The
poet Clare expresses the idea in this fashion
The cricket on the bank is dumb ;
The very flies fchget to hum ;
And, save the wagon rocking round,
The landscape sleeps withou r t'a sound.
The breeze is stopped. the lazy bough
Huth not a leaf that dunceth now.
A Goon Move.—A majority of the store
keepers i town have determined upon closing
their stores at 8 o'clock, P. M., from the pres
ent time until autumn. The storekeepers in
all parts of the county might adopt the plan of
early closing at this season of the year, as
business is usually very dull at this time.
PROFOUXO, VERY.—That,learned 'statement'
in this weekly; Globe.
" I am Sir Oracle ;,
And when I speak, let no dog opo'his mouth."
For the I( u ntingdon hums!
previous arrangements the glorious Fourth was
properly celebrated by the citizens of Fairfield
and surrounding, country. The sun rose clear
and bright on that day, at an early hour the
people began to flock into town, and at 8 o'clock
the Sabbath Schools farmed into procession,
and escorted by the Jackson Guards of Ennis
ville, under command of Lieut. .f. Mcllroy, (au
officer of the war of 1812,) and their guests,
the Union Guards of Petersburg, marched to
the Grove about a half mile from town, on the
farm of Mord. Henry, Esq, The processior
was nearly a quarter of a mile long, and was
truly a grand eight. After arriving at the grove
and being arranged in order, a prayer was of
to the '.t'h'rone of Grace, after which a
a hymn was sung by the choir. The Declara
tion of Independence was then rend by Master
E. W. Hartman, in an excellent style. Prof.
Thompson, of Mooresville Institute, addressed
the Sabbath Schools in an appropriate and elo
quent manner, after tvhich, H. T, White, Esq.,
of Huntingdon, the orator of the day, was
troduced, and in a splendid style and eloquent
language entertained the audience for near a
half hour. At the conclusion of the oration
the crowd partook of a s umpttions dinner, pre.
pared in a splendid manlier by the ladies . Af
ter dinner, the military companies were ad
dressed by D. J. Neff, Esq., and never have
we listened to a more soul-stirring, patriotic ad
dress. At its conclusion the procession was
again termed, and returning to town, the dif
ferent schools, etc., were dismissed. Nothing
occurred to mar the festivities of the day, and
all were delighted with the prJceedings. In
the evening, an excellent supper was served up
at Troutwein's Hotel, of which the yo nag la
dies and gentlemen partook. X.

Epilepsy, or Falling Fite:
We believe we cannot do our readers a more
important service, than by again calling their
attention to that most remarkable preparation,
discovered by Dr. Seth S. fiance, of Baltimore
Md., which possesses the power of alleviating
and curing that horrid visitation of man—Ep
ilepsy, or Falling Fits. In recommending this
preparation to our readers, we do so with a con.
viction that we are not degrading oor columns
to puff a common patent medicine, but are
placing before them a discovery, which, if ful.
ly known, would probably do more to alleviate
human suffering, than any invention of modern
times. Dr. Hance, in asking us to notice his
preparation favorably in our editorial depart
went, has sent us for perusal a number of let.
tars from persons who have used his Pills, and
have been cured thereby. All of them speak
in the most crateful and eulogistic terms.—
One great advantage this medicine possesses
is the fact, that it can be transported through
the mails, thereby affording every one ac op.
portunity of dealing directly with the inventor
and also precluding all possibility of beinr
imposed on by a counterfeit or spurious imita
tion. Dr. Hance pays the postage on all his
Pills to any part of the country, and will for
ward them by return of mail, on the receipt of
a remittance. His prices are as follows One
box, $2; two do., $0; twelve do., $24. All or
ders for the medicine should be addressed to
