Wednenday Morning, July 27, 1859.
A GOOD Sznum—Last Sabbath morning,
Rev. Reid discoursed from the text--" Men
was not made for the Sabbath, but Sabbath for
man." He clearly defined the duty of all iu
observing this sacred day of rest, and eulogized
with thrilling eloquence, our present and past
What sweeter sound e'er thrilled upon the
ear, than the peal of the village church bell,
sending its quivering vibrations through the
air, answered by another and another, and the
peal going from steeple to steeple, weaving its
airy chain of music o'er the whole, amid the
warm and ferved glory of a summer Sabbath
'day? This bell-music, softened by distance to
she gentle breathi ugs of an dEolian harp, touches
the heartstrings, and warms to life the best
thoughts of naNre. Oh, never take from
as this "golden clasp," this holy Sab'mth,
"which birds the volume of the week." Then,
the minds of men are enetranged from the toils
and strife., and bitter cares, and biting enmi.
ties of this existence, and follow in the path.
way of light to the happier and better life.—
What were poor, toiling, suffering humanity
without this day? What would be the condi
tion of our physical and spiritual natures, if
there were no rest here to give us foretaste of
"that peace which the world cannot give?"—
the mind shrinks from a contemplation of that
condition of things which would follow a sup
pression of the Sabbath, with its sacred obser
vances and duties, and shudders at the shad-
owy images of desolation the mere thought of
it conjures up.
0 Sabbath!—needed for a world of inno
cence—without thee, what would be a world of
sin I—There would be no pause fur consider.
allot, no check to passion, no remission of
toil, no balm for care! Ile who had withheld
thee, would have forsaken the earth! With
out thee, he had never given to us the Bible,
the Gospel, the Spirit! We salute as thou
commit to us in the name of the Lord—radi
ant in the sunshine of that dawn which broke '
over a nation's achieved work—marching
downward in the track of time, a pillar of re
trashing cloud and guiding flame interweaving
with all thy light new beams of discovery and
promise until thou standest forth more fair than
when reflected in the dews and imbibed by the
flowers of Eden—more awful than when the
trumpet rang of thee in S!nai ! The Christian
Sabbath! Like its Lord, it but rises in Chris.,
tianity, and henceforth records the rising day.
And never since the tomb of Jesus was burst
open by him who revived and rose, has this
day awakened but as the light of seven days,
and with healing in its wings! Never has it
unfulded without some witness and welcome,
some song and salutation! It has been from
the first until now the sublime custom of the
Church of God I Still the outgoings of its
morning and its evening rejoice I It is a day
of heaven spots the earth I Life's sweetest
calm, poverty's birthright, labor's only rest

Nothing contains in it such. a history I No.

of virtue, seal of truth ! The household's
richest patrimony, the nation's r.oblest cafe

intelligence, the strength of law ! The oracle
of instruction, the ark of mercy I—Tae patent
of manhood'sspiritual greatness. The harbin
ger of our souls sanctified perfection. The glo
ry of religion, the watch-tower of immortality.
The ladder set upon the earth, and the top of
it reacheth to heaven, with the angel of God
ascending and descending upon it.
Tea BALD nom:EL—We have now the
positive assurance from headquarters, that this
long delayed and anxiously looked for political
luminary will make its appearance, without
fail, on or about the 10th proximo. We make
this announcement gratuitously, receiving the
information from the gentleman whose name
and services have been secured to conduct it and
give dignity to the concern. The material and
"good will" of the Shirleyshurg Herald office
have been purchased for this object, and the for
mer will be removed to Huntingdon in the
course of two weeks, and Mr. Robert Milton
Speer, a promising young lawyer of this bor
ough, will then mount the tripod, and "aided
and abetted" by the valuable silent partner
ship of our ponderous pest master and his col
htague, the "man with the white hat," deal out
thai; jjf , trrue and utter those sentiments which
•mnial to the feelings and affec
tions of the fol;o7er.: of King James than
those promulgated by lift; i xitingdon Globe.
At first, it was proposed making .Mr. 8 ' Ar .
rice ed:t, we are informed, but after ct;:-.lti•
-lion, it was thought that it might operate
against Mr. A., in the presentation of his name
for office this fall, and so it was finally agreed
that thepoeticablearlike name above mentioned
should be hoisted at the masthead.
The object of this paper is to meet the wants
of the Buchanan wing of the Locofoco party of
Huntingdon county, in opposition to the Doug
las faction, represented by the Globe, and will
be the means tinder 1 rovidenee, of distracting
to a still greater degree the already torn and
dismembered sham Democracy. We hail with
exceeding gladness the advent of this new can
didate for public notice, and sincerely hope
that the "Bald Hornet" may not merely blush
into life and pass away, but that it may "ac
complish that for which it was sent ;" that we
may see again, re-enacted, the memorable
fight between the two snaix, when each takes
the other by the tail, and "pipit down" until
nothing remains of either'.
How much money has been appropriated by
'-Old Buck" to carry out the project, we are un
able correctly to state, but the presumption is
the amount is considerable—perhaps the price
of a half score of mules. The silent partners are
not noted for any "stupendous" amount of lib.
erality, but government funds are very good
backers. Again we Say, pitch in gents, and let
!'The Hiina tickle the Peaceek's tail."
DEATH or J. A. HALL—No announcement
has fallen with so crushing a weight upon this
community, for years, than the sad tidings
which greeted us on last Sabbath morning—
that our valued neighbor and tried and true
friend had passed into the portals of eternity.
Mr. Hall breathed his last at about 10 o'clock,
Saturday night, after many months of bitter
suffering, which he bore with the resignation
and calm patience which has over marked the
devout Christian, passing through "the dark
valley " which leads to the sunny plains of Par
No man has ever stood higher in the esteem
of a community than did the deeeased, and his
death leaves a blank which it is almost impos.
sible to supply. His tomb is the tomb of ge
nius; and the friend, the martyr to the educa
tion of youth is there deposited. Let his eu
logy be made in tears.
Could this beloved man, whose teachings
have been so telling upon this community, now
address us from the spiritual world, his lan
guage no doubt would be,
"All, all on earth is shadow, all beyond
Is substance—the reverse is folly's creed."
He would charge us to use all our talents and
endowments under the sensible influence of
this impression, and discharge the whole busi
ness of time with this view,—a view which un
riddles human life, gives meaning to all its
seeming mysteries, and explains the intention
of all its toils, its afflictions and its trials; that
presents an object suited to those ceaseless
graspings of the soul of which we are all con
scious, but which no mortal ever did, or ever
can fill with any possession of attainment on
this side of the grave. Ho would tell us that
the future world is to rectify the disorders, sup
ply C e deficiencies, compensate the labors and
reward tho sufferings of the present. There
the soul of virtue drinks to the full, expands
her faculties and pursues her pleasures without
hindrance, and finds that "these light afflictions
which are but fore moment, work out for her
a fat more exceeding and eternal weight of ,
glory." Filled with these reflections, we take
a last look at the ashes of one who filled up
life with usefulness and duty, who bore its bur
dens with patience, and looked forward to its'
close with pleasure. 'Who considered death
but as the birth of a new and nobler existence;
as a dark but short passage to the regions of
eternal day; and who in the very agony of his
change, could exclaim in triumph, " 0 death
where is thy sting! 0 grave where is thy vic
tory! Thanks be to God who giveth us the
victim F, through our Lord Jesus Christ."
And now, as we pay the last, lad tribute of
a tear, to the friend and instructor of our youth,
whose sun has set to rise no more until the
morn of the resurrection, we may proudly add,
to such a man No tomb shall be wanting to
his ashes uor memory to his virtues."
JERRY SNEAK.—Our community, and espe•
chilly the render of the Huntingdon papers,
is sometimes gratified with a sight of this char
actor, done up in rags and lampblack. He is
known by this peculiarity—a morbid craving
for notoriety, no matter Mr what and no mat
ter how,*so that wretched personalities may ha
thrust before the public, and "I" have his name
appear in capital letters. Master Jerry is no
doubt very smart, but he should remember that
only when a Young man is really distinguished,
when he occupies a place won by exertion of
superior intellect, when he has for years re
ceived the tribute due to superior merit, when
scholarship, political talent and tact, or high
toned yet imoblrusire worth have distinguish
ed his deeds, can be be pardoned when he din.
plays a thirst for newspaper celebrity. We
hope he will mark this, and nevercultivate that
spirit which goes fussing and blowing through
life, strutting its pretty name in every paper
and on every wall, until it drops into its grave,
when down it goes, plump, like a leaden weight,
into oblivion—or perhaps deeper, for a life spent
in a feverish chase for notoriety, seldom im
proves the soul in reality, no matter what its
speciality of vanity may have been. Long
hair and long articles are ro index to a super.
abundance of brains.
LEARN ro SWlNl.—Everybody, we believe.
should learn to swim—women no less than men,
"Beauty, the mother of love," according to one
of the significant myths of the ancients, "is the
daughter of the waves and of light." Waler
and sunshine still acknowledge the relationship,
and the fairest forms grow fairer still in the
loving embrace of the limped clement. The
maidens of the Pacific islands swim like water
nymphs; so do the Italian, Mexican and South
American w, men, and many others, and we
hope the time is not fur distant when we shall
have it in our power to chronicle the fact that
the ladies of our own country—our wives and
daughters—will be classed among the list of
, those who indulge in the deligleul practice.—
The exercise is not only a pleasant but a health.

facts be considered, and perhaps it

—will count themselves imperfectly educated
without knowing how to swim
TLIAT Lecvoas--As all parties have now
been heard, we deem it hut an act of justice to
ourself to give the full facts of the case in re
gard to the chargeof plagiarism madengainst
Mr. Swoops, in his recent lecture in this place.
Our charge was made wholly upon "casual
comparison" of the two lectures,—the ono as
it stands in our columns, and the other as recol
lected by Mr. McDivitt. It was made at the
latter gentleman's instigation, by his request
and with his authority, who also furnished us
with the dales of the same, otherwise we had
not known that such an address as he claimed
had ever been published. If any blame is to
be attached to this, we hope it will be laid at
the right place."
Pic Nic.—We have heard some talk among
a few of our young friends, relative to the get
ting up of a mammoth pic 'lie party to be com
posed of all our young and old citizens who
may wish to be counted in. We have a pro-
Motion to mats—it will fizzle ont.
Bonus Oven.—The boys whom we mentioned
last week, as having been engaged in throw.
int; stones at a passenger train of cars on the
Pennsylvania Railroad, near this place, had a
hearing on Saturday last, before Justice Snare,
who bound one of the party over for his appear
once at the August term of Court. Two other
boys engaged in the matter have disappeared ;
they will, however, be similarly dealt with when ,
they mako their ann..—
ever they mako their appearance. We hope.
this may be a lesson to those of our fast young
sters who delight in amusements of this nature;
and one which the parties in question will heed.
HAIL. STORM.—A very severe hail storm
visited the northern part of thin county on the
19th inst., confined however in its limits within
a circle of about a half mile. In the village
and vicinity of Saul3burg, its violence was
more particularly felt, although other sections
in that part of the county suffered seriously
from its effects. In the former place, we are
informed by a resident, the window glass went
down wholesale, and a considerable amount of
uncut grain was partially beaten to the earth.
We have not been informed of the full extent
of the damage, but presume it was considerable.
