say. Rev. Zahnizer delivered a splendid dis-
course last Sabbath evening, from the text—
" The harvest is passed, the summer is ended,
and we are not !laved."
&Er The place of holding the camp meet
ing by our colored population has been changed
from Beechen Glen to Happy Hallow, near the
Sulphur Spring, on the McCahan farm. It will
commence on the second day of September
REfirWe are gratified to hear of the unani.
mous nomination for the State Senate by the
People's party of the district composed of Blair
Cambria and Clearliclu counties, of Col. Lewis
W. HALL, of Altoona, a prominent and distin
guished member of the Blair county Bar. We
confidently expect his election, although he
lives in the district represented for six years
by Hon. JOHN CRESWELL, and honored as the
residence of "Beef Bigler," the weak-in-the•
knees representative in the United States Sen
ate of "our distinguished fellow-citizen," J. B.
If the people of the district know their inter
ests, they will see to it that COI. Hats. is sent
to the Senate by a majority which will tell on
the corrupt dynasty at Washington, and secure
a Senator who will do honor to his constitu
ents and himself.
ANOTHER CAVE DISCOVERED.-Cle day last
..veek, some persons employed in plowing a
field, on the slope of Chimney Ridge, which
overlooks the town of Hollidaysburg, disco,
ered a cave of considerable extent. It is one
of those singular excavations so common in
limestone formations. The aperture at the top
is circular, and much resembles the top of a
well. Those who descended say that they went
down perpendicular about 50 feet, and, that
part of the way down there was an opening
that appeared to lead off in a horizontal diree•
tion—but they had no means of reaching the
mouth of it so as to extend their explorations.
It had not yet been thoroughly explored, but
some young gentlemen descended into it on
Saturday and brought away some very curious
and pretty specimens of calcareous spar.—
Doubtless it will before long be fully explored,
and if it should prove a rival of the great Mam
moth Cave of Kentucky, we will in duo time
chronicle the fact.
A WOMAN BURNT TO DEATIII.-011 Friday
Week the wife of Mr. iV. Hagerty, residing in
the vicinity of Altoona, Pa,, was so badly
burned while endeavoring to rescue her child,
whose clothes had caught fire from a fluid lamp,
that she died the fullowinil Sunday. It appears
that the unfortunate lady had .placed a fluid
lamp on the table, and that it exploded, set-
ting fire to the clothes of the child. This
alarmed her so much that instead of endeavor
ing to smother the flames, she ran into the open
air thus fanning the flame. A Mr. Barker, at
this juncture came to her relief, and snatching
the child from her, quickly divested it of its
clothing. Ho next attempted to strip Mrs. n.
in like way, but she resisted, and it was only
after a struggle that he got off 80 much of her
dress as was on fire. She was shockingly
burned, and though prompt medical aid was
procured her, her life could not be saved.!
,Be' Some two weeks ago we inserted or. ar
ticle which was called out by the death of a
talented young lawyer in a neighboring coun
ty, from that prolific sourer, of depredation,
misery and death—intemperance t Scarcely
had a week elapsed, when another instance of
the same dreadful power of King Alcohol, in
our own town, we were compelled to notice,
And so it will continue, from time to time; and
so will we be called upon many a time and
oft; to notice the untimely and horrible end of
victims to the intluence of damning poisons,
until au arm stronger that; pitny man's, and a
power greater than any human agency can in
vent, shall interpose. It is indeed a truism,
that no other people under the heavens are
rushing so madly on as the Americans. Wo
are prating from Sunday morn until Saturday
eve, about liberty, equality, and fraternity; wri
ting eulogies upon the Amadei= Eagle, Flail
Columbia, and the Star Spangled Banner; el
bowing each other from pavement to get in the
front rank of fashion ; sending money away to
convert Australia, the Sandwich Islands, and
Central Africawhile the actual "Greeks are
at our door,"—while the devil seems really dri
ving us down the precipice to irretrievable ru
in. Our nation is young, but dissipation is al•
most universal. A few years more, and the
fruit of our Upas tree will ripen into a horrible
harvest of desolation, crime, disease arid death.
"Swinish gluttony [feast!"
Ne'er looks to heavens amidst her gorgeous
but dishes blindly on to moral chaos. The ex
perience recorded by Shakspeare strikes no
sympathetic cord in " happy, proud America:"
"Though I look old, yet I am strong and lusty;
For, in my youth I never did apply
Hot and rebellions liquors to my blood;
Nor did I, with bashful forehead, woo
The means of weakness and debility ;
Thereforemy age is a lusty winter,
Frosty but kindly."
ler Some time ago a report on "lunar in•
finance," was published in the county papers,
which agitated that question considerably. We
have received the following, from a prominent
agriculturalist of at', county (which he says he
sees in a number of papers,) with a request to
publish in our local department, for the bens•
fit of our farmers :
1. Vines, if pruned when the moon is in
creasing in light, will shoot out, spread, and
grow fast, particularly if done in the second
quarter, because, as the light of the moon in
creases, so does the sap iu the tree.
2. Vines, if pruned when the moon is de
creasing in light, will not spread nor grow fast,
particularly if it be done during the last quay
ter, because the sap decreases with the light.
3. Timber cut down when the moon is in
creasing, will soon become rotten, particularly
if she be in her second quarter.
4. Timber cut down when the moon is de
creasing, will last fur years, and the more du
ra.ble it will be if cut down during the last guar.
6. Peas sown during the moon's increase
will bloom to the last, and will be full and rich
in flavor still more certain if sown during the
6. Peas sown when the moon is decreasing
in light will be just in the opposite condition.
7. The age to which a pomegranate will
live depends cn the moons age at the time of
planting ; it will live just as many years as the
moon was days old.
8. Plants and shrubs shoot up and take
little root, if planted when the MOOR is de.
creasing in light, and in zodiacal signs, Gem
ini, Libra, or Aquarius.
Tile.—We heard two or three little ones
the other evening singing, oh, how sweetly, the
beautiful little song,
"Kind limas can never die,
Cherished and blest,
God knows how deep they lie
Stored in the breast."
How true! "Like apples of gold," they are
sweet tocontemplate. Wherever they are used,
be the home ever so humble, they bless, and
there love and gentleness reign ; for what are
kind words but types of these heaven•born qual
ities? "From the abundance of the heart the
mouth speaketh ;" and where kindly thoughts
fill our• inward life, the outward life will show
them forth in kind and gentle words. They
are the links in the chain which bind together
the forms that cluster around the fireside. The
guardian angels at the altars of domestic peace
and happiness; the gentle ministering spirits
that hover around the head of infant innocence,
ever ready to gladden the heart by some mis
sion of love ; ever active to sooth the angry
spirit of contention with the oil of their charity.
Home is not home without them ; when kind
words are unheard in the dwelling, and all the
graces that follow their footsteps have fled with
them, then indeed is home no longer the rest
ing place of the heart. The sunlight of love
has left the sky of life, and the dark night of
sorrow is brooding overhead, starless and drear.
We need kind words all along onrway on earth;
• joy and sorrow ; alike are they welcome at
the wedclingleast and the burial service. They
are angel messengers to earth's weary children,
"rejoicing with them that do rejoice. andweep
ing with them that weep." As the evening
dew drops, coming down from the skies, fall
upon the fair young flowers, freshening them
into new life, so do the gentle voices of kind•
ness come upon the human heart. And as the
little summer• streams, bubbling up in glad
music, greet the coming of the cheering sun
shine, so does the grateful spirit spring forth
to meet their touch, Oh ! could we only know
how much of usefulness lies within our power
by the aim ple means of love, how many we
might bless with our sympathy, we should not
he so sparing of it. Kind words cost nothing
but who can calculate their good results.
"Oh down it not an idle thing,
An angry word to speak;
The look you wear, the thoughts you bring,
A heart may heal or break."
