untingblyn Mourn'. Wednenday MorningTingnst - 24, 1859, LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. 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. 49E. 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 second quarter. 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; in • 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." Every member of the People's Party in this county, is ardent is tho support of the ticket. Vizr* Beware of Locofocos in disguise. A Voice From Virginia. CABIN POINT, Sorry Co., Va. Dr. Seth S.
