EDITOKHLmES, LOCAL AND GENERAL.
The "devil" of the Att'.ghanian disparages
the democratic candidates. Cause why
the devil hates cripples.
Mr. James Hall; a resident of Cambria
county for some sixty years, died on Thurs
day last, aged upwards of 90 years.
John A. Maguire, of Huntingdon, had one
of his thighs broken, a couple of weeks ago,
by being throwu from a buggy. "
B. F. Sloan,' of Henderson township, Hunt
ingdon county, had his under jaw 'frightful
ly shattered, on the 5th inst., by being kick
ed by a vicious horse.
The tailor -shop of Jonathan Stouffer. in
Ilollidaysburg, was entered by thieves on
the night of the 13th inst., and despoiled of
some 5700 worth of goods.
Two young ladies fell from a cherry tre-j
near Uniontown, on the 13th inst., and re
ceived internal and external injuries of a na
ture that it is feared will prove fatal.
Joseph Shorthill, who was confined in jail
here charged with the larceny of a horse, was
brought before Judge Murray on a habeus
corpus, one day last -week, and bailed out.
Ten freight cars wers smashed to flinders
and their contents strewn in all directions,
iu consequence of the breaking of an axle,
near Barree Station, on the Pa. K. It., on
Monday of last week. .
We gave our belief last week that "An
thropon" was a radical. It turns out so, ap
parently, for the Tribune js coming to his
relief. If ho had beeu a democrat he would
feel so fofxl about this time.
If the correspondent who takes exceptions
to some of "Sku BaPs" statements in regard
to tho visit of the Independent Jr. Club to
Indiana, will furnish his name, we will pub
lish his communication otherwise not.
The AUcgJianian has conclude! to leave
the Freeman "in it's own 6lough." Dread
ful ! Let the AllrgJianian adhere to the
truth hereafter and it will escape such pue
rile articlosas that contained in its last issue.
The grass and grain harvest is upon us,
and abundant crops are being gathered.
The grnss, as a general thing, is good, while
so far 3 we havo been over the county the
per centage of wheat and rye will be large
over any former season.
The Lock Haven Democrat publishes a
filly account of the killing of C. (Canary)
Bird by a villain called Grimalkin, in that
county recently. There is enough of real
crime in the country without getting up such
stupid burlesques as the one in qusstion.
The Tribune alleg-s that some democrats
will bolt the ticket because "they are tired
alike of rascality and dictation." If that is
what they are tired cf the radical party is a
very poor place for them to rest in. If ras
cality and dictation has a political name,
that name is radical.
A son of Mr. John Ferguson, of White
township, Indiana county, was dragged from

Wc lw?ar of difficulty among our radical
friends in Southern Cambria. The young
rads complain that tho Elders of the party,
with the Tribune clique at their head, are
anxious to sell out the Republican party

future, to certain du-sat Wied democrats.

out of bed. where it had been left by its pa

the string of its night gown caught on one

found by its mother shortly after, strangled
to death. .
"Mr. Johnston's roll rail" is the courteous
term used by the "painful" editor of the
Tribune towards the editor of the Freeman.
We suppose it means something, but ws cer
tainly "can't sco It.' If it refers to our
"HoII of Honor," as paying subscribers, that
certainly has no charms for kim so far is it
in advance of his sickly list.
We are under obligations to Mr. John
Sheridan, of Hemlock, for a list of new sub
scribers to the Freeman, as well as for the
promise of additional efforts In our behalf.
If we had a few more such earnest, energetic
friends as Mr. Sheridan the Freeman would
soon boast its thousand subscribers. We owe
our entertaining correspondent. "Sku Bal,"
a like return of thanks for similar favors.
Who will imitate these commendable exam
ples? William Johnston, keeper of a livery sta
ble in Altoona, was arrested, one day last
week, and taken to Pittsburgh, to answer
the-charge of dealing in counterfeit fractional
currency. It is alleged that a detective offi
cer, under the pretence of being one of the
fraternity, purchased 4100 worth of counter
feit currency from Johnston in April last.
The prisoner, after a hearing, was held in
$10,000 security for trial before the United
States District Court.
Peter Botto, a wealthy citizen of Memphis,
recently left home for the purpose of visiting
Europe, but when he got to New York he
deposited his valuables for safe keeping, and
went on a spree and was sent to Black well's
Island, as a vagrant, where he was found
very ill by a friend despatched in quest of
liim. This friend was returning to Memphis
with the sick man in charge, when, on Mon
day morning last, on board the Philadelphia
Express, a short distance cast of Altoona,
Mr. Botto suddenly died. His remains were
taken to Pittsburgh and put in a metallic
coCQn.and from thence conveyed to his friends.
Citt Visitors. We had the pleasure of
a pop visit, on Monday last, from two of our
Philadelphia salesmen friends, Mr. A. J.
Spigelmire, representing the wholesale gro
cery house of Gillespie, Zeller & Co., Sixth
and Market streets, and Mr. J. J. Potter,
connected with the wholesale tobacco and
segar warehouse of Cunningham, Gleim &
Co., 408 Market street. Both these gentle
men are still in the neighborhood, and we
need only say for them that they are both
tip-top fellows, and represent two of the best
mercantile establishments in their respective
lines of which the Quaker City can boast.
We heartily commend them to tho patron
age of all dealers in the goods they sell, and
feel confident that all who buy from them
ones will not turn a "cold shoulder" on them
in the future.
THE w blather for the past few days lias
been exceedingly sultry, and unless a man is
decked out in the coolest kind of umraer
garments, snch as Y. S. Barker has for sale
in good variety, at his cheap store on Main
street, it is next to impossible to keep in any
thing like a comfortable condition. Wo
commend Mr. B's stock of summer clothing
for gents' wear and summer dress goods for
ladies' wear to the attention of everybody.
Singular. T4ie large, and beautiful as
sortment of summer dress goods at J. M.
Thompson's is a constant source of attrac
tion to the ladies hereaway. Singular, isn't
it, how soon the ladieti find out when any
thing pretty comes to town. Remember

Indeed I we cannot sec (and our better half
agrees with us) how any "well-regulated
family" can get aloDg without it.
Johnstown, Jcir 22, 1867.
.Dear, Freeman A -.young man named
Potter, whose parents reside in Woodvale,
died from the effects of an overdose of laud
anum, on Monday evening last.. '. Potter had,
a few weeks previous to his death, located
at New Derry for the purpose of following
the profession of phoographer, and on Sun
day was at home on a viit. On Monday
he returned to Deny, and complaining of
feeling unwell, he bought a vial of lauda
num, and on retiring that night drank about
half the quantity, and on Tuesday morning
was found dead in his bed. . His remairs
were-brought to Johnstown and interred in
Sandy Vale Cemetery.
James Downey, sr., an old and raspected
dtizen of this place, died on Thursday last
of deb.Mity. He leaves a family of three chil
dren, who mourn the loss of a mother killed
by the 6ad accident on the 14th of Septem
ber last, a sister who died recently, and who
are now bereft of a kind and loving father.
' Wilson Myers, who was a resident of Sum
merhill, met with a terrible death on Friday
last, in the vicinity of that placo. : It ap
pears he had been standing on one of the
tracks watching a passing Height train, and
the noise of the cars prevented him from
hearing the-approach of another train from
the opposite direction. When discovered by
tho engineer it was too late to give the alarm,
and he was caught and mangled in a shock
ing manner, death ensuing immediately. - A
delegation of Odd Fellows went up to Sum
merhill yesterday, per special train, to at
tend .his funeral. 1 am indebted to Mr. P.
Doran, the popular engineer on the Mail, for
the above item.
A man named Thomas N. Dale, whilst-
standing on the platform of a passenger car
of the Cincinnati Express train east, yester
day, by a sudden lurch of the car in round
ing a curve four miles below town, was
thrown from the platform and very severely
injured. He was brought up to tho Scott
House and medical attendance summoned.
One limb was badly fractured, and several
severe contusions were found upon his per
son. His wounds, though serious, are not
necessarily of a dangerous character. Mr.
Dale hails from New Ycrk.
Quite an interesting c ise of robbery turn
ed up here last week, f.nd the mystery at
tending the affair is likely to be cleared up.
It appears that Mr. Howard, who Keeps a
small grocery on Franklin street, and re
sides in Kernville, went home the other day
and made the startling discovery that his
gold wctch and pocket book had mysteri
ously disappeared. A lady visitor at his
house immediately rushed frantically to her
chamber and found that Bomebody had taken
from a small work basket a $50 U. S. bond
and a $2 note, her propeity. No clue to the
perpetrator of this daring robbery was had
until a couple of days afterwards, when some
of the neighbors disclosed the fact that the
afore'a d Howard had visited his own prem
ises on the day of the disappearance of the
money, etc., during the abseuce of his wife
and her friend. Suspicion at once fastened
on Howard, and he was arrested and gavo
bail for his appearance before a Justice to
day, when, afLer a hearing, he was held in
$100 security to answer at next Court the
charge of grand larceny.
Considerable senstition was created in Mill
ville yesterday by three individuals hus
band, wife and wife's father who began op
erations by getting drunk. To vary the or
der of exercises the husband secured ti butch
er knife, and attempted to take the lives of
his partner and her father, but outsrne inter
ference prevented tho consummation of this
little arrangement. The parties being tepa
rated, it became the wife's turn to do some
thing, which bhedid by breaking for the river
and recklessly plunging into a cccp hole in
the water near the iron bridge. The would
be suicide was drawn out just in tha nick of
time, being so far gone as to necessitate the
carrying of her home on a board by her he
roic rescuers. In the meantime the sangui
nary husband had been taken to the lock-up
by the active and vigilant constable of Mill
vine borough. In about an hour afterwards
tho wife sufficiently recovered to be able to
go to tho "jug" to see her liege lord, and all
feelings of animosity having subsided, she
then went in pursuit of the 'Squire who had
made the commitment, to see if the erring
but repentant husband couldn't be released.
Upon receiving a negative answer 6he be
came boistetous, and the police were compel
led to arrest her, but it was no easy matter
to take her, and ere arriving at the lock-up
she succeeded in damaging a portion of our
gal'ant Major's wearing apparel. The party
accused of felling them liquor has been re
turned. A stone-mason employed on the new Meth
odist church was arrested on Friday for be
ing intoxicated, and one of his fellow work
men, attempting to interfere with his arrest,
was also "jugged." The man who imbibed
an extra quantity paid $6 for his whistle,
and the other was "socked" $13.
Mr. Peck, who served 72 hours in limbo
from the 1st of July, put in 48 hcurs more

Three men were arrested for assault and
battery with intent to kill a negro at Cone

appear at Court to answer.
A man assaulted the wife of a tavern
keeper in Cambria borough, on Wednesday
last, by striking her with a piece of cinder,
injuring her pretty severely. He entered
bail for his appearance to answer.
Another individual was bound over for
entering the bouse of a widow lady and using
violent and indecent language towards her.
Still another was taken to the jug" under
the influence of mania-a-portu. After a very
severe combat of several hours duration with
snakes, &c, he recovered and was released.
Mrs. Yetter, whom I noticed last week as
accused of infanticide, gave bail on Saturday
in the sum of $1,000 to answer at court the
charge of causing the death of her child.

Frazer bought the corner, with a front on

The Junior Independents played a match
game of base ball on Saturday with the Su
periors. The Independents won an easy
victory, the score standing 85 to 57.

B. Clubs of this place, on the 20th inst., I
hereby proceed to give an account of the
same. The Star Club is composed of finely
built, well developed, muscular young men
from 15 to 18 years of age. The appear
ance of two-thirds of the Mountaineer, Jr.,
would not indicate their ages to be over 12
years, while their activity and splendid
playing would do credit to full grown men.
The following is the score of runs made br

fellows moving to keep them from making
second and third bases. The other club,
with one or two exceptions, done excellent
playing, both at the bat and in the field.
Lowman drove the ball terribly for one of
.his size. Parrish and tftough took "flies"
that one would have thought would have
driven, them to the earth. IJoover, as pitch

Three hearty cheers were given by each of
the clubs for the other, and also for the Um
pire, when they parted with the understand
ing that another game would soon be played,
each confident of winning next time. 8.
A Good Job. No further evidence of the
jddll of Mr. J. Sharretts Dysart as a painter
is needed thau an examination of the work
done by him in the fine large residence now
being completed for Philip Colins, Esq., on
High street. His work there, we venture
to say, will compare favorable with any
similar job in city or country, "arid no one
who has any painting tcbe done need go
from home to secure a competent workman
to do it. Give Mr. Dysert your work to do,
and our word for it you will neither be dis
appointed in its execution or overcharged in
A Gbbat Disideratum. The American

only o'liection that could havo been urged
against it was the liability of its works to
get clogged with dirt. This objection has
been entirely overcome by newly improved
cases, which completely exclude dust and
render the watch perfect. C.T. Roberts

proved cases, for sale, and offers them at as

Drugs and Literature may be a strange

which, when properly used, not only con

The Blackberry Crop promises to be as

AMERICAN WATCH COMPANY
This Company beg leave to inform the
public that they commenced operations in
1850, and their factory now covers four acres
of ground, and has cost more than a million
dollars, and employs over 700 operatives.
They produce over 75,000 Watches a year,
and make and sell not less than one half the
Watches sold in the United States.
The difference between their manufacture
and the European is briefly this : European
Watches are made almost entirely by hand,
and the result is of necessity a lack of that
uniformity which is indispensable to correct
time-keeping. Both the eye and the hand
of the most skillful operative must vary.
But it is a fact that, except Watches of the
higher grades, European Watches are the
product of the cheapest labor of Switzerh'-.d,
and the result is the worthless Ancres, Le
pines and so called Patent Levers, which soon
cost more in attempted repairs than their
original price. Common workmen, boys and
women, buy the rough separate parts of
these Watches from various factories, polish
and put them together, and take them to
tho nearest watch merchant, who stamps
and engraves them with any name or brand
that may be ordered.
HOW AMERICAN WATCHES ARE MADE.
The American Waltham Watch is made
by no such uncertain process, and by no such
incompetent workmeu. ' All the Company's
operations, from the reception of the raw
materials to the completion of the Watch,
are carried on under one roof and under one
skillful and competent direction. But the
great distinguishing feature of their Waiches
is the fact that their several parts are made
by the finest, the most perfect nd delicate
machinery ever bronght to the aid of human
industry. Every one of the more than a
hundred parte of every watch is made by a
machine that infal ibly reproduces ever3' suc
ceeding part with the most unvarying accu
racy. It was only necessary to make one
perfect watch of any particular style, and
then to adjust the hundred machines neces
sary to reproduce every part of that watch,
and it follows that every succeeding watch
must be like it.
The Company respectfully submit their
watches on their merits only. They claim to
Make a Better Article for the Money
by their improved mechanical processes thau
can be made under the old-fashioned handi
craft system. They manufacture watches
of every grade, from a good, low priced and
substantial article, in solid silver hunting ca
ses, to the finest chronometer; and also la
dies' watches, in plain gold or the finest
enameled and leweled cases; but the indis
pensablc requisite of all their watches is that
they snali be GOOD TIMEKEEPERS. It
should be remembered that, except their
single lowest grade named "Home Watch
Company, Boston," ALL WATCHES made
ARE FULLY WARRANTED
by a special certificate, and this warrantee
is good at all times against the Company or
its agents. BOBBINS & APPLE! ON.
