Etchings. Our friend Captain Palmer
has re-leased for a term of years that
popular hotel in Johnstown, the Foster
House. The traveling public should
make a note hereof.... The Legislature has
passed and the . Governor has approved
a bill authorizing and requiring the Pro
thonotary of Cambria county' to '-keep an
extension docket.... Major B. M. Morrow,,
of the 205th regiment P. V. during the
war, and a gallant 'soldier, died in Scotch
Valley; in Blair county, on the 6th inst.
.Y It 13 understood that our. boro. author
ities intend removing' the publio weigh
scales from their present location, in the
East Ward, to a point at or about the
center of the town... .Eight thousand dol
lars have been subscribed by the citizens
of Johnstown toward the purchase of a
steam fire engine; ' One thousand dollars
more are required ... Capt. Doherty, the
man stabbed by Farren in Hollidaysbur'g
a few weeks since, is recovering.... On
Saturday and Sunday, we were visited by
a regular old-style enow storm, which did
not entirely seal up our railroad and cut
off our communications east and west, but
which came so near doing that same that
six hours were required by the locomo
tive in which to plough its way to Cres
son and back on Monday. As we write,
(Tuesday.) the sleighing is excellent, and
the merry jingle of the bells is heard on
E.NGLisn. The Freeman last week took
occasion to find fault with our English.
What does our critical editor think of the
following 2 "Editorialises" "we don't
like to be too critic' "we commented on
the Bill became we saw it tied felt it our
duty to do so," (do what ?) "during the
last summer canvas the subject of United
States Senator was a permanent question
before the people of Pennsylvania." We
get all these out of one copy of the Free
man. If Simon Cameron (concerning
whom the words were written) is more
corrupt than the last quotation from the
Freeman, he should keep a sharp look out
or the Freeman will soon deprive him of
Hegira of Ministers. Last week
we announced that two of our Ebensburg
pastors, llev. Wilson of the Presbyterian
church and Rev. Ellis of the Calvjnistic
Methodist church, had severed their
connection with their respective congre
gations. Since then W learn that Rev.
Wm. S. Lloyd, of the Disciples church,
and Rev. D. Evans, of the Welsh Baptist
church, havo also resigned their pastorates.
The former intends removing to Alle
gheny county in April. Rev. L. Powell,
formerly pastor of the First Congregation
alist church, also designs removing to
some other locality shortly.
Visitor. Samuel D. Pryce, jr., for
merly of Ebensburg but now-of Iowa
city, is in town on a visit. Seven years
have passed since Sam went from amongst
us. Half of that time was spent with
Sherman in fighting rebels. The other
half was spent in business pursuits, and
so successfully that Sam is now a partner
in a commission house in Iowa City, and
is a rising young man. Luck be with
him always !
Collector of Internal Revenue.
Among the nominations for appoint
ments sent into the Senate by the Presi
dent on Friday last, was that of David
Caldwell, of Huntingdon, to be Collector
of this (17th) district. . Mr. C. was nom
inated by the President for the appoint
ment cf Assessor, some weeks ago, but
was not confirmed.
Killed. David Switzer, who left
Juniata county last fall to seek a home
in Missouri, was murdered in his own
house, in that State, on the evening nf
the 25th ult., by two men, whose object
was plunder. A dif patch says one of the
murderers was afterwards captured and
lynched by the citizens.
O. K. Curtain Fixture. Mr. George
Huntley, Ebensburg, is a regularly ap

LETTER FBOM HEMLOCK A "STBIKE" AND IN
ACTIVITY 12 THE COAL BUSINESS FENIAN
OPERATIONS BASK BALL, AC.
- ' Hemlock, March 18, 1867.
To the Editor of T he AlUghanian :
The mining portion of this community
being on what is denominated a "strike",
at present, the business men of town are
having a very quiet time cf it. The op
erators a few days ago notified their em
ployees that owing to the decline in the
price of coal and the small demand at the
time for the article, they, would be com
pelled to reduce the price of mining to
correspond with that of coal. The miners
not seeing the thing in that light, decli
ned to allow any reduction in their wages
unless1 the price of produce was al?o re
duced; and the result is, the operators are
holding out for a fall, while the miners
insist on having the old price or a corre
sponding reduction in ' the price of the
necessaries of . lile. We feel confident,
however, that the matter will soon be ar
ranged satisfactorily to all parties, when
we hope to have better times than we have
been enjoying the past six months.
It is said to be an ill wind that blows
nobody good, and while the "strike" has
proved a serious backset to the communi
ty in general and to the coal men in par
ticular, it has been a God-send to the
"Finnegans." Head Center Swcnigan
and General Malanigan have taken ad
vantage of the situation, and are doing a
lively business in the way of recruiting.
I am informed the H. C. has been partic
ularly active the past few days recruiting,
furnishing supplies, and forwarding men
to the field, and if the cause should fail,
(and my prayer is that it may not,) it will
be no fault of his. The General has like
wise been most active in filling up bis
brigade, the home guard, and those who
go to the front can rest assured that their
friends behind will not be allowed to
I understand it is in contemplation to
call a meeting to reorganize the Highland
Base Ball Club of this place. Hope such
is' the case. Though I have not the honor
of being a Highlander, yet I wane to see
the fun go on.
The weather to-day is cold; snow about
a foot deep, and sleighing tip-top. O.

Chest Springs, March 18, 1867.
To the Editor of The Allejhanian :
We are now having a most beautiful
fall of snow, and from all appearance,
winter is not over yet, though most peo
ple have been predicting an early spring
and warm weather. . A week or two of
good sledding, to afford the lumbermen an
opportunity to get in more saw-logs, would
be very acceptable, far this has been a
hard winter to get in logs, on account of
the deep snow. But despite all draw
backs, thero will be a great quantity of
lumber manufactured in Cambria county
this season. The Messrs. Nutter, of this
place, have made every preparation to
manufacture the article on an extensive
scale. They have had a large number of
men employed all winter getting in logs
for their mills and staves for their shook
shops. A great many logs have been put
iu the different creeks and runs of the
county, to be floated down in times of
high water to Lock Haven, Williamsport
and Havre de Grace but not so many as
there would have been had the winter
proved a favorable one.
The little daughter, of Mr. Solomon
Charles, of this place, who was acciden
tally shot by her brother some two weeks
ago, is fast recovering from her injuries,
and will be able to be about again before
Another Veto. Since spring hap
vetoed winter, and nature is budding forth
again, V. S. Barker has made another re
duction in the price of his heretofore cheap
goods, in order to make room for his spring
stock. He is determined to sell, and invites
persons wishing cheap goods to call.'
The Coming Campaign. Prepara
tions are being made, and no pains will be
spared to open out the spring campaign with
the usual large display of fashionable spring
goods of every description, at A. A. Barker's
varietj store, Ebensburg.
Plain Statement of Facts. The
attention of the public is called to the fine
stock of periumery, fancy articles, soaps,
brushes, &c, kept constantly on hand at C
T. Roberts' jewelry store, all which are being
sold at reaso unble prices.
Another Donation. Geo. Peabody 's
late donation to the Southern States has been
completely laid in the shade at Thompson's
cheap cash store. Jim is prepared to donate
any quantity of any quality of goods to pur
chasers at a small advance on city prices.
Free to Everybody. Some persons
labor under the delusion that E. J. Mills
charges an admission fee for entrance to his
store. Such it not the case; access is not
only free, but he takes pleasure in exhibiting
his cheap ready. made"clothing to everybody.
