Dallas at 1.10 p. in.. ar rives at Huntingdon at 4 21 p.m.; leaves Hunt ingdon at 9.05 a. in., and arrives at Mt. Dallas at 12 18 n. m. Acemmodation Train leaves Saxton 7.30 n. m.. and arrives at Huntingdon, at 9.20 a .in.; leaves Huntingdon at 4.35 p. in . and arrives at Haxton at 6.27 p. m. On hand—a fresh supply of snow. In a muddle— the new alms house. Talked of— occasionally—a railroad to Bedford. Xoisy— some of our "boys" on the street at night. Hard to get hold of and not hard when gotten—money. If money is the rootofail evil, edit ors are the most virtuous of men. Getting easier—money matters in the east. Hope it may soon reach this section. David Patterson, Esq., a highly re spectable citizen of Bedford tp., died last week. It is almost next to impossible to get coal -hipped over thisend of the Broad Top road. Who's to blame ? A neighboring editor lands a near relative of bis who "once upon a time" served as a county officer. It's all in the family. Simon says, "wiggle waggle," and the members of the Legislature wiggle waggle for John Scott lor I'. S. Sena tor. Simon and the Central area pow er in this state. There are several schools in this county in which the co-education of the races is going on. Truly, we are "progressing" according to the Radi cal idea. A lot of "manhoods" of this place were determined to get up a razor row the other night. Too much benzine was the cause. It is not correct, as is generally sup posed, that publishers of newspapers can live without being paid for their labor. Neither do they all steal for a living. We- hope our friends in arrears will take the hint. To be properly fitted with boots and shoes, of the best makes, the place to get them is at tho Regulator's, No. 2, Anderson's Row: also the largest as sortment of queensware, glassware, groceries, notions, Ac.,always on hand to select from. There will he a partial eclipse of the moon on the evening of the 17th of January, which will be visible in the United States. It will begin at 7 o'- clock and 20 minutes, and end at! o'- clock and 45 minutes. An exchange says: Our jail is full, and guards are on duty at night either to prevent the inmates from escaping, or to prevent others from trying to get in." That must be a healthy place to live in.

F i: Rixo P< IFETRV.— Thomas Pales, a descendant of Ham, not hav ing the fear of the Commandments be fore his eyes, visited a neighbor's hen roost with intent felonious. He has a weakness for good conditioned poultry, and, espying two plump ones, which his eyes coveted and his stomach crav ed, he converted them to his sole use and benefit. This being contrary to the act of assembly in such case made aad provided, a constable visited Thomas and asked liiin to appear be fore a magistrate. Thomas, being a little chicken-hearted, and expecting new honors, kindly consented. The J ustiee, with due deference to Thomas' ingenuity, insisted that higher honors awaited him. to reap which Thomas gave his bond to appear before the Honorable Court at the nest term. MALICIOVS MISCHIEF.— David Iru ler, Levi Imler, Ephraim Imler and Henry Imler, four young men residing in Bedford tp., were conceived of an idea that it was th<-ir religious duty, as good citizens, to throw stones at the doraicil of their neighbor, Jacob Fritz, and accordingly they set themselves heartily to work at the aforesaid busi ness on the night of the dUth ult. — Fritz protested against such conduct, and in due time, Constable Fetter brought these stone throwing youths la-fore Justice Nicodemus, who upon hearing the ease, dismissed Ephraim and Henry, and held David and Levi in *doo each to answer at the next term o( court. Throwing stones at an inof fensive old man may be good pastime in some localities, but the law arid or der-loving citizens of Bedford town ship will not permit the perpetrators of such outrages to go unwhipt of jus tice. THE NEW FURNACE.— The work at J lie new furnace at Riddlesburg is pro gressing rapidly, notwithstanding the unpropitioiu weather we have had. Mr. Worden, the Superintendent, is a gentleman of great energy and perseve rance, and proves himself to he the "right man in the right place." DEATH OF DAVID POINTS, ESQ.— We forgot to notice ihe sudden death of this estimable citizen of Red ford tp., last week. Mr. Points was an honest, upright citizen, and his loss will be felt by the community in which he lived. Jie was an acting Justice of the Peace at the time of his death. Is OFFICE.—The County Auditors were in session last week and attended to their yearly duties. M. A. iunter, ESQ., the new memDer of the board, was present. Mr. IfLUterisa shrewd business man, and makes a splendid officer. A SHAW AND CLARK $2.7 Sewing Machine (in good order) for sale. En quire at this office. jul3tf. FILUXFI THEJCHY WHEEL.— Last week the Jury Coministiioners met to fill the jury wheel for the year ISC9. The Act of 1867 makes it the duty of the "jury commissioners, president judge, or additional law judge, of the respective district, or a majority of them, to meet at the scat of justice of the respective counties, and thereupon proceed with due diligence, to select alternately, from the whole qualified e lectors," such number as may be desig nated by the court, of "sober, intelli gent and judicious persons to serve as jurors" during the year. Isaac Ken singer, one of the commissioners being absent, Judge King and William Kirk, theother cotnmisioner, proceeded to fill the wheel. Five hundred and two names were placed in the wheel.— These were apportioned among the sev eral districts of the county, according to the number of ekvtors at the late election. Thus, Colerain with four ti nies the number of electors that Schells burghas, would get four times the num ber of jurors, or 20 too. In drawing the jurors the commissioners are assisted by the sheriff. The first twenty four names drawn are Grand Jurors, one of whom is selected by the jury commis sioners to act as foreman. Then thirty eight arc drawn as Petit Jurors. Per sons who prefer serving as Grand Jur ors will thus see that the commis sioners and sheriff cannot control tho matter, but that it is all a thing of chance as to who comes out first.

PRISONERS PARDONED.— Among the list of pardons, accompanying the Gov ernor's message, we find the following cases from this county. The reasons assigned by the (Governor were no doubt set forth in the petition to "His Excellency," and upon these the par. don was granted: Jam?* Key , Bedford county, Feb. 10, 1007. "Assault and Battery.'''' Three years and one month in the Western Penitentiary. Pardoned March 29, up on recommendations from Hon. John c„"na, S. L Russet!, J. Mower, Thomas Hughes, F. Benedict, M. A. Points, John Harris, and many others, who aver that the testimony did not justify the conviction ; the prisoner had previously sustained a good character j and having suffered an imprisonment of more than a year the ends of justice had been achieved. Isaac Sha/cr, Bedford county, Sept. •">, 18(57. " Larceny ." Five years in the Western Penitentiary. Pardoned Feb, 27. Recommended by the president judge and district attorney, Hon. John Cessna, E. F. Kerr, A. IJ. Ivoontz, S. M. Barclay, A. S. Russell, O. E. Shannon, and many more. Reasons: Shafer was seventy fiveyearsold, and in declining health ;a monomaniac on the subject of horse stealing and promised, if released, to ex pose an extensive gang of horse thieves, and make other im portant disclosures. The promise to "expose and make, other important disclosures" has never been carried out. Why this hits not been done we are unable to say. A SCHOOL MONTH.— The Pennsylva nia School Journal gives the following as the law fixing a school month : "That twenty-two days shall be held to l>e a school month, and that two .Saturdays in each month, as the prop- j er board shall designate, which two Saturdays shall be held to be a part of the school month, may at the discre tion, and by an affimrative vo e of a ma jority ofall the members of the Board of Directors, or Controllers, be appro priated to institutes for the improve ment of the teachers of the said district: Provided , That in districts in which the schools are, or shall be, kept open, and in operation, the maximum term now allowed by law, and the teachers employed by the year, the foregoing clause as to the number of days in the school shall not apply any further than that the reports and statistics of the school shall be kept in accordance there- j with, and that District Institutes may be held as thereby directed ; all acts or parts of acts, inconsistent herewith, be and are hereby repealed. THE PUBLIC DEBT INC REASE.— The statement of the public debt on Janua ry Ist, just issued by the Secretary of the Treasury, compared with the previ ous statement, rendered December 1, shows an increase for the month of De cember last of I ,GG7,3*>7. The total debt, less cash in the treasury, is given at $2/> 10,707,iXi1. The cash in the treas ury stood : coin, ♦fis,76#,3Cß; currency Total cash on hand, #lll,- 820,101.

Our peace man is going into real estate, but considering the low state of the finances and what hard work Russia had to shame the Alaska money out of us, and how Denmark hasn't been able these throe years past to get within gun-shot of the seven millions and a half promised for St. Thomas, it would he as well to in termit this business till we have our accounts all straight and can pay for our fancy stock cash down. * SI2OO AND AI,L EXPENSES PAID!— See Advertisement of AMERICA* SarrrLß SEWING MACBI.NB, in our advertising columns. nov6yl MA 1111 IF.

For So years he had been a member of the Presbyterian Church, of this place, which he liber ally supported, and regularly attended, when health permitted. He was kind to the poor, a good neighbor, a worthy citizen, and an humble chris tian. A son and three daughters, all married, sur vive to mourn his departure. LYONS—After a protracted illness, borne with the most saintly patience, Mrs. Mary C. Lyons, nee O'Hara, consort of the late Nicholas Lyons, merchant of this place, departed this life on the morning of the .'ird of January, 1569, at her resi i dence in Bedford, in her 6*tb year The deceased was born and raised in Pittsburgh, but spent all her married life in Bedford She was a member ' of the distinguished O'Hara family, so connected with the beginnings, growth ar.d prosperity of Pittsburgh. Mrs. Lyons was a christian lady in tbe most exalted sense. Her appearance and gen eral manner were truly dignified—and indicated a noble and lofty soul; but her moral virtues were her brightest ornaments. Whilst she charmed, by her grace, people of the world, the pious found in her unostentatious virtues, matter of edification and example. She was profoundly religious— de vout without affectation. She was respected and loved by all ber neighbors. She was Itind gnd merciful to tbe poor, tbe widow and the orphan. No one was more beloved by the members of ber household —her domestics—and sueh was her chari ty that she had always on hands some poor friend less one to maintain in her house, for whom she : src'l provided, both temporally and spiritually. She is goiu t.. receive her exceeding great reward from Him who acknowledges as done to Himself whatever His charitable disciples do for their needy fellow-creatures. ••Then the just will answer Him ; when did we see Thee a stranger and take thee ID ?or naked uud did cover Thee ' or when did wc see Thee sick ( And the Jvtng will answer; as long as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, ye did it to M E - : M ATT -37 v.
