1 LOCAL CORRESPOXDEaiCE.
Johhstown, Nov. 25, 1867.
Dear Freeman The wife of our towns
man, Mr. John Urady, met with a painful
and seiiomj accident on Tuesday last. She
had started up stairs with the youngest child
in tier arms, and when about ha'f way to the
landing, she missed her footing, and falling
backwards, fractured one of her limbs just
below the knae, and also sprained her ankle.
Fortunately she succeeded in preserving the
child from injury. Medical aid was prompt
ly summoned and the broken limb properly
adjusted, but owing to the serious nature of
her injuries she i3 now lying in a critical con
dition. This is a severe affliction to Mr.
Brady's family, and it is rendered more
poignant by the fact that he himself has been
suflaring from a fractured limb ever since the
terrible accident at the stat ion in this place,
last September a year, from which he had
only sufficiently recovered to enable him to
vibit his relatives on the mountain on the
very morning of the day his wife was so se
A man named Russell, a resident of Cone
maugh station, met with an accident one day
last week, by falling from the trestle work
at that place. His head and shoulders first
came in contact with the ground, and his
injuries are of such a nature as will confine
him to bed for some time. Mr. Ii. had just
recovered from an accident received on the
railroad some months ago.
Still another individual was arrested last
week for displnying belligerent propensities
iu a beer saloon in Conemaugh borough, and
for flourishing a loaded revolver in a threat
ening manner. Complaint was entered, and
the police took him to durance on a charge
of surety of the peace. He will have a hear
There is some prospect of the outlaw
Thompson being caught soon, as a party
who were in search of him traced him to
M'Counellsburg, where, getting wind of the
pursuit, he stole a horse in the neighborhood
and rode back in this direction. The shad
ow of his crime, Nemesia like, pursues him,
uud it would seem as if some unaccountable
fascination ever leads him back to the vicin
ity of the commission of his awful offonce.
During the past two weeks he has been seen
at various times at Ktoyttowu, Laughlins
town and Lxtrobe, and although recognized,
no one seems to have had the temerity l.t
h-nlihooJ to attempt to a: rest him. There
it a j arty row oa his track, however, who
will most certainly capture the desperado.
T ic individual who waiseut up last week
for the robbery at Mr. M'Cretght", was ctr
U.ir'.y a genius in his way. During the
oight be commuted the felony he was enjoy
ing Mac's hospitality, and it is prubble
that his ruminations were principally con
lined to meditating upon tile handsome fig
ure 1:3 would be likely to cut in his h-jsi's
hc.-t suit of wearing parapiuenalia. Ih-that
as it may, h rose from his bed and proceed
ed to uoo the aforesaid suit. His next move
w:-. to f jb a valuable gold watch, likewise
ut property of Mr. li'C At this stagii of
his pruceedings it doubtless occurred to him
that he had a. lady friend, mayhap his 'af
finity." v.ho would bo gratified in being
m.ule the recipient of some new "togs." So
a b:ud!e of Mrs. Mac'a wtaring apparel was
hastily selected, and the jcung man then
took his departure. As soon as his pecula
tions bcame known pursuit was made.
Mr. M'C. had a suspicion that the ycusg
tiaa would make for Indiana county, so
taking the train weat, he was very agreeably
surprised to see the put loiner enter the same
car at iew Florence. All the stolen pro
perty, except Mrs. M'C.'a clothing, was re
covered. Johnstown has been enjoying a decided
sensation the past two wests, which cousiats
in nothing more nor less than a veritable
perambulating ghoit. This ghost does not
diii'er in disctiption from other ghosts the
orthodox winding sheet and accompaniments
being s -ported in regular ghost of Hamlet aud
lUnquo, or famous "Cock Lane," style.
His ghostship appeared the other evening to
a lady residing in the Second Ward, and the
appearauce was so terrifying a3 to produce
convulsions. A little girl residing near the
point also got a view of it, and thereupon
immediately fainted. A gentleman in the
same locality was horrified, a few evenings
after, to tee the "gho.-t" glide into his house,
and as he did not feel very courageous, he
"turned tail and rar." It is proper to re
mark that when he came back with rein
forcements the ghost was non est, as likewise
several loaves of bread, etc., from his cellar.
The ghost has evidently a "taking way"
with it, for clothes-lines and cellars have ex
perienced mysterious disappearances, in tho
shape of "washing's" stretched out on the
former, and eatables from the latter. The
"ghost" does not cotifiue his visitations to
any particular quarter, but roves 'round
promiscuously. The individual whom it is
supposed is thus playing upon the supersti
tions aud credulity of the weak-minded is
spotted," and if caught by the party who
are anxious 1 1 see the ghost, an ounce of lead
will give him au opportun ty of solving the
mysteries connected with the land of sha
dows. The scaffolding ",has been removed f'ora
the spire of the nsw M. E. Church, and it is
certainly the neatest affair of the kind in this
section of the country.
The slating of the new School Houge is
also about completed, and the gravel roofing
of MesM-s Frazcr and Montgomery's hand
some new block, on the corner of Main and
Franklin street;, was last week finished.

Carboix Tr., Nov. 26, 1867
To the Editor of the Freeman J regret
i.ub jou leni, me columns of your paper to
a. xj. u.nste ior the purpose of
singling me out as one of the
Ilousa Directors, and must avail myself of
tne same columns as a medium of replv
....u u prfwjuai nostuity to any man
living, having endeavored to live at peace
with all men, and having conscientiously
discharged my duty, nude my oath, as Poor
Director, I am quite at a loss to conceive
wny should be singled out from tb e whole
Loard as the object of personal abuse. Let
me say a few words m reply :
In the first place let me assure vou that I
have no objection that the world shall see
and Know every transaction that occurred
at the Poor House since I have been a mem
ber of the Board. And the records will
show, and I appeal to them, that no other
Director has drawn less from the public trea
ury than I have, during the year that I
have been a member.
It is false, then, in the first place, that the
Board ever visited Johnstown at my instance.
It was proposed by my seniors, shortly after
I became a member, that a visit to Johns
town, for the purpose of arranging the pay
of out door paupers, employing a regular
physician, and other matters", would be ad
vantageous to the county, and I submit to
my colleagues whether it was not so. We
received barely euough to cover our expen
ses. and that amount wan suggested by
otherB, and not by myself. As to the pitiful
falsehood that the "party went upon a regu
lar spree." I leave my colleagues to answer.
To those who know me, no contra lictiou is
necessary, so far as I am concerned.
The other charge is that I signed an order
for a friend for upwards of Forty Dollars.
The friend alluded to is a certain Irvin Rut
ledge a man whom I had never seen before.
The Poor House train went to the station for
my colleague, Mr. Orris, and I went along
to meet the train. Irvin Kutledge was with
him, and stayed all night at the Poor House.
I never had a word of private conversation
with him in regard to any bill or order for
it. It is not my purpose to say whose friend
Irvin Rutledge was lie never was a friend
of mine, Rnd I had a prejudice against him
from h-iving heard that Ii? had an undue
influence at the Poor Hor.e. Any orders I
over signed for Lim v.eia made out bv the
Steward and signed by an older member of
the Board fir.-r. fieing the youngest mem
her of the Board, I defened very much to
the opinions of the o'er members, and never
signed an order that was not filled by the
Steward and signed by my seniors, or one of
them, if both were rot present. I did re
sist bills presented by Rutledge, and believe
I at one time prevented him from getting an
order for what I thought an improper bill.
These are the two monstrous wrongs I have
done to the peop'e. as regards thtir money.
But thU is not what's the matter ! I was
absent from one meeting of the Board. This
frequently happens, and as two Directors
form a quorum for business, it does not af.
feet the public interest. But I had a satis
factory reason for not being present at the
meeting referred to. I learned that a new
Steward would be chosen at that meeting,
and I thought it unfair to the people cf Cam
bria county for a Board to choose officers for
their successors. The proper course, as I
believ. is for every Board to appoint its
own officers, s Jone by the County Com
missioners, and all other bodies of the kind.
If a different custom has prevailed in the
Poor House, it is a bad one, and I hope we
have Bet a good example for the future.
But A. D. Criste having, by the vcte of
a living and a dying Director, been appoint
ed Steward, I moved to rescind the appoint
ment for the purpose of making a new one,
and he claims that this is without precedent.
But it is not. Only a few years since the
new Board revoked the appointment of the
old Board, and appointed the present Stew
ard ; and fortunately, too, as the discarded
Steward turned out a murderer aud the ma
tron a prostitute.
At the first meeting of the new Board I
did what I deemed my duty to the people.
I d:d not know JL. D. Cnnste to be the pro
per person for the appointment; 1 never
charged him, as he seeuia to think, with be
ing a "gambler, intemperate, or lazy," nor
did I find any fault with his family. I sim
ply treated the question as an open one,
doing what I thought my duty, but I con
fess that, elected by the Democrats, I could
hardly, against an equally qualified person,
appoint to a position a raan who, I was
credibly informed, bad voted the whole Rad
ical county ticket at the late e.ection.
It paying m commutation for military
services to the Government was not sufficient
evidence of loyalty to my country, I trust I
have partially atoned for it by choosing for
Steward one who, while he is neither "a
gambler, intemperate, or lazv" has done
his part in the army of the Republic a
man who is not only deserving but compe
tent, humane, and honest, and a man who
did not seek the Poor House as a plaster to
heal his broken fortunes.
But I must stop. I beg pardon for the
length of this paper, and my only excuse is.
that having never sought or held au office
in the county of my birth but the humble
position 1 now hold, I deem tbe attack upon
me unjust, uncalled for, and malicious.

t,ditor or the freeman JJear &ir : l no
ticed an article in your paper last week,
headed in letters quite conspicuous, "Com
munication," and signed by one having the
initials, "II. II. S." No doubt the writer
of this letter was prompted by what he con
ttdered a good motive when he undertook the
task. With a'-l due regard for the author's
good intentions while writing thiscommuni
cation, which musit naturally be classed an
advertisement, I would respectfully request
that he calculate the real worth of all so
called physicians who permit their names to
used in connection with testimonials of "won
derful cures," which are said to have been
performed by them, with the aid of some
secret remedy; which, when needed by their
duped patient Is not known to the U. S.
Pharmacopcea or any scientific druggist.
Advertising physicians are almost invariably
impostors, and always quacks.
To the readers of the Freeman -1 would
say that the communication referred to was
neither asked or paid for by me, and of the
worthy Editor I would most cordially ask
the favor that no further testimonials in my
favor be published in the Freeman without

American Waltham Watches. The
true value of Machinery applied to Watch
making is not that by its use Watches are
made rapidly, but that they are made cor
rectly." Very few people kuow a Waltham
Watch should be superior to any other. ' In
the first place, at Waithata the Watch is re
garded as only a machine, to be constructed
like any other inaohine, on mechanical prin-.
cipies. it the watches are good it ;s because
the machinery is g. od. Of course there mut
be no dt feet in the principle or plan of move
ment no mistake in the sizes or shapes of
the pieces of which it is composed nothing
wanting in their properties, and no error in
their positions. Thee points once thorough
ly settled, it rests wholly with the machine
ry, constructed with infinite diversity of form
and function expressly for the purpose, to
produoe the finished pieces. By mean3 of
multiplying gauges and microscopes, tests
and inspection for the detection of wear in
the cutting tools, and for faults and flaws in
steel and stone are made to accompany the
work in every ttage from beginning to end.
As a necessary result, the watch goes togeth
er a perfect machine. Every part is found
to fit properly in its place. Eveiy pin may
be pushed till it pinches, and every sciew
turned home. Instead of sluggish and feeble
action, the balance, even under the pressure
of the lightest mainspring, vibrates with a
wide and free motion, and the beat has the
clear ringing sound always characteristic of
the Waltham Watch. The machine is a
timekeeper from the start.
This system of watchmaking is unknown
in foreign countries, aud is entirely original
with the Waltham Company. The Comnanv
claim that by it they produce watches that
cannot be equalled for every quality which
roasts a watch valuable. Simple m plan
and correct in principle, the movement is not
only beautifully finished, substantial, accu
rate and cheap, but is uniform in the minu
test details, not easily damaged, and when
repaired always as good as new. There are
different grades of fiuish in the different va
rieties of watches ma.le bv the Waltham
Company, as there are different sizes and
shaj.es to suit all tastes and means ; but ev
ery Watch that bears the ganuine trade-mark
of "Walthaji" is guarantied to be a good
one, and no'Kdy need be afraid to buy it.

It is not true that R. II. Singer intends
leaving town, as some will have it, but, on
the contrary, intends to carry on the Black
smithing, in all its branches, stronger than
ever. In order to do this it is necessary to
