Tliirtdftjr Horning. March 24. IH7O. THE ucsnsonnw AXn BROAD TOP BAIEROAD. We have liefnre us the Seventh Annual Report of the Directors of the Huntingdon and Broad Top Mountain Railroad and Coal Compa ny to its stock-holders. At the annu al meeting of stock-holders, held on the first of February, B. Andrews Knight was re elected President, and J. P. Aertsen, Secretary, with the fol lowing board of directors: Rathmell Wilson, C- D'lnvilliers, John Dever eux, William Cummings, Sam'l J. Christian, James Long, James W. Paul, A. P. Wilson, Wilson Whi taker, Ed ward Roberts, Joseph H. Trotter, John B. Wood. The Gross Earnings of the company for the year 1869, were $301,184.31, an Increase over last year of $88,518,23. The expenses far 1869 were $13t,385,72, being 17.09 per cent, less than in 1868. The Net Earnings were $119,795.59, an increase of 41.€2 per ••ent over last year. Ihe number of tons of freight carried over the com pany's road during 1869, were 417,182, of which 360,778 tons were coal, the whole tonnage for the year exceeding that for 1368 to the amount of 109,122 tons. This is a very gratifying exhibit. The increased earnings of the compa ny have enabled the management to make improvements, such as filling up trestles, strengthening bridges, Ac., which in the language of the report have "greatly increased the safety and stability of the road and superstruc tures, and also contribute largely to its more economical operation." It is complained that the number ot coal cars, supplied by the Pennsylvania and Philadelphia and Reading R. R. Companies is entirely too small to sat iety the wants of a constantly augment ingcual tonnage and that but fur this ob stacle during the past year the coal shipments would have exceeded the amount reached fully 100,000 tons.— There is a probability, however, that those compauies will add 700 addition al cars to the number now in service. The board of directors express pleasure in acknowledging that the satisfactory results of the business of the company are largely due to the efficient man agement of J. McKillips, E?q. Super intendent, and John Fulton, Esq., Resident Engineer. The report refers to the project of con structing a railroad to connect Bedford with Mt. Dallas,as follows: "Amove "ment has lately been made by the "citizens of Bedford county and oth ers, to construct a railroad from the "town of Bedford to Mount Dallas, to "connect at the latter place with your "railway. They propose building this "road under the charter of the' Bedford "and Bridgeport Railroad Company," "and when it is finished, to lease it to "your company. It is very desirable "and Important that this road should "be built, but as no definite route or "plan h is yet been agreed upon, it is "probable that some time will elapse "before anything practical is aecom "plished." The writer of this has, however, been assured by gentlemen who are deeply interested in the con struction of the proposed road from Mt. Dallas to Bedford that a feasible plan for raising the means necessary to build the road has been devised and that the route will be surveyed and put under contract in the course of a tew months. The sum required to grade the road and lay down the track, Is estimated ai $150,000. It Is proposed that the road, on its completion, shall be 1 eased t >theHuutingdonand Broad Top Railroad Company, at 7 per cent. per an u urn on the cost of construction. It is doubted whether the latter compa ny are willing to pay 7 per cent., but we presume they would be willing to pay 6 percent. With theassuranceofan annual return of 6 per cent, interest on their investment, it will not be a hard matt~r to find capitalists who will sub eribe the sum necessary to build the road. Such a guaranty should induce the people of Bedford and vicinity to subscribe nearly theentire sum, them selves. Indeed we have no manner of doubt that if the Huntingdon and Broad Top company furnish L. T. Watson, E-q.. or any other active, in telligent and reliable business mat), a written guaranty that they will pay 6 per cent, per annum on the amount of stock sut>scribed to build the road, the required slso,out)can be raised in any of the eastern money centres. Meau while let our own people hold themselves in readiness to respond liberally to so fair a proposition. In another quarter of the globe an American Minister has undertaken to do diplomatic service for the Chinese government. The United States Min ister to Perujhas informed the Peruvi an authorities that the Emperor of China has requested him to protect his aubjects in that country, where they have been very badly misused. The Peruvian government, iu response, have appointed a commission to ec* amine into the condition of thai* cool- 1 lt> settlers. We don't care if the Treasurer be a Democrat or Republican, we believe that he gets his salary for his services, that the tax-payers of the County are entitled to the interest of the surpl is fund in the Treasury, and that we ought to have a general law to that effect, regulating such matters through out the State.— lnquirer. Well, then, why don't your Republi can legislature give the people such a law? Why all this waste of words, this uselessshedding of ink ? Marry, go to! Have not your party made the laws for this State for the last ten years and have they not had time enough togive us the reform you suggest? Scolding like a very drab will not give legal authority to the County Treasurer to put the county funds out at interest, but a few broad hints to your party friends in the legislature might. We, therefore, very humbly submit that a petition, numerously signed by Re publicans, of all colors, addressed to the Solons at Harrisburg, will have a better effect than all the querulous ar ticles in the Inquirer, written for bun combe, from this time until the next election. For the edification of the Gazette man we will inform him that the Addition al Law Judge does not draw his sal ary out of the County Treasury.—ln quirer. Who says he does? Not we. Nev ertheless it is a fact that the tax-payers of Bedford county contribute their share, equally with the other taxpay ers of the State, toward the payment of his salary. We spoke, in a former article, of the increased cost of holding courts, and referred to the fact that we are indebted to the Republican party for the expense entailed on the coun y by the erection of the office of Additional Law Judge. We did not refer to the salary of that officer, but to the cost of the additional courts.— By the Auditors' Report made in Jan uary last, we find that the pay of Ju rors for the year 1869, was $3210,73. For L.e year 1865 the pay of Jurors was $2203.28. This shows an increase of one thousand dollars in this single item of the county expenses in 1869 over what it was in 1865. For this additional expense the Republican party is clearly responsible. "OLE VIROISSL." "Stick" is the laconic motto of the carpetbaggers in general, and of Vir ginia carpetbaggers in particular.— Like leeches, they have fastened upon the body politic, and they don't in tend to let go until completely gorged. The scalawags who were foisted into office and power by Federal bayonets, following the general example, are not inclined to vacate the snug places which they have been holding without responsibility to any one except their master with the cloven foot and a pair of horns. The infernal pickpockets and thieves who were furnished with official position at Richmond, Peters burg, and other points, and whose commissions were signed with a pair of crossed bayonets, are not disposed to "git eout," as they say down in Yankee-land. The Radical powers have recently condescended to permit Virginia to bring the grave of Washington back into the Union. Of course, when the "mother of Presdents" had her terri torial shackles removed, it was expec ted that the military pimps and suck ,?s would be obliged to make way for the legally appointed officers of the State. But not so. They swear by the "cock-eye" of the engineer of the Dutch Gap Canal that they will not surrender. The worthies appointed under bayonet law are not disposed to make way for the appointees of Gov ernor Walker. They contest posses sion, and have secreted the public re cords. This will, in all probability, lead to difficulty. The ins seem determined to remain in. Walker has made cer tain appointments In accordance with the laws of Virginia, and he must see to it that his men are not kept out in the cold. It is due tc the law and his own dignity to insist that the carpet bagging suckers shall be thrust out. If the suckers are ousted, as they will in all probability be by judicial decree, they will invent some terrible cock-and bull story about outrages upon the rights of Union men. Tremendous yarns will be told of Ku-Klux robberies, and negroes will be slaughtered—on paper—by the score. "Forney's Mur der Mill" at Washington will be put in opera'ion, and the columns of the Chronicle will grow alternately black and red with horror and blood. At the same time Sumner, Wilson, Butler, and every other hound in the Radical kennel, will open in full cry against Walker and the legally-constituted authorities of Virginia. Then as a natural consequence, the State of Washington, Jefferson, Mon roe, and Madison will be placed in the same category with Georgia. She will be remunded back to a territorial con dition, and have her fortunes once more entrusted to the keeping of a mil itary satrap. Perhaps the murderer of ninety helpless Piegan women and their fifty helpless babes will be sent to deal with the intractable Virginians. No one can tell. We are open for al most anything nowadays.— Evening Herald. A negro woman in Virginia, seventy one years old, recently took It into her head to learn to read, write and cypher; so siie en'ered a school and regularly every day brought ten cents, which she paid to the teacher. She got along very well until near the clos3 of the second week, when she "missed her lesson," and was ignomlnlously kept In during reeeas, greatly to her disap pointment at not boiug permitted to "ply Wid de rest of the children." jSiefcfavti, p&.> PHILADELPHIA. [Correspondence of the Bedford Oeiet'e.J PHILADELPHIA, Mar. 15,1870. Madrigals. When the Madrigal Concert was an nounced by the West Philadeipia Cho ral Society, there was a general flutter of pleasure among the grave and gay. We were not surprised, then, when we found Morton Hall crowded with a brilliant assemblage —the young, of course,preponderating, for thecomposi tion of the Madrigal is of a musical and amorous character. All the history we shall give Is, that the Madrigal origin ated in the warm, sunny Italy in the Sixteenth century, and is exclusively vocal. The Selections were very fine, and were exquisitely rendered. Among them were, Forgive, Blest Shade; A wake, Sweet Love; Since First 1 saw Your Face ;.When Winds Breathe Soft; April is in my Mistress' Face; and oth ers. There were also soprano, contralto ami bass solos,all of which were encored. We are a member of this Society, but keep our musical talei t under a bushel from which it has never been brought out to our knowledge. We noticed Mr. McClure, late'of Bedford, among the eingists and this speaks conside a bly for his musical ability, as none but the best talent appear there. In the Penitentiary. It may interest you to know that your correspondent has been in the Penitentiary since he last wrote you. And you may attribute his long silence probably to this fact. But our stay on ly lasted about sixty minutes, and we were cheered during this brief sojoi n by the presence of several ladies who, of course, would not allow us to re main in durance vile. This building is immense, the front built of granite, is massive and imposing, the cells ra diate from a common centre and all can be kept under the eye of a single person. We were taken to some of the cells, bake house, culinary department, Ac. The inmates number over 500, and are kept in separate confinement, get plenty of good bread, meat, vegeta bles and soup. We all ateof the bread and it was pronounced by the ladies to be " real nice."'' So, after going thro' this place, the question arose in my mind, Who is getting punished here? Or is this any punishment at all to these hardened wretches? Some thief goes there, and he likes it so well he goes back again in three months after his time expires. He gets better bread and more of it, than he had at home; he sleeps on a good bed, "exercises for ty minutes a day," and gets fat on it; while his wife and ehildreu are getting the.punishment he deserved by eking out a wretched existence in an old shanty and starving for bread. But the Penitentiary is a flourishing iustitu ion, and will never go down for want of patronage. lam writing you on Tuesday, and we have had this week already three murders in this city. Murdoch Again. We admire Murdoch, and we run af ter him wherever he goes. He read in I Horticultural last week, and the an , nouncment was that this would be his I farewell; but we were delighted to j hear that this was not the fact—for rea j sons I care n >thing about—and so we expect many more rare treats as this ; last was. Well, Murdoch had an aud ience of about 1500, and if the nasty masculine Anna Dickenson had read her "Down Breaks" she would have had at least thrice that number. Here we may see how the world wags. Mer it never gets its reward until it gets it i in heaven. We are sorry to say that the health of Mr. Murdoch is very precarious. Blitz. We went in to see and hear the re nowned Blitz the other evening. He I has been in Europe recently and comes buck chuck full of new things. The most mysterious are his magic drum and theSphynx. The trained canaries j charm everybody. It is a grand place for little folks at the matinees, and gives thein talk for a week after. His manipulations puzzle most of the older heads. Loquacious "Bobby" is much admired, but like many others he is nothing when he is not talking. "Sheridan's Ride." This elegant painting by Read has been on exhibition for several weeks. As a work of art it is very satisfactory. The horse, however, is much superior to the man. That is, of course, you un derstand, in an artistic view. The ri der is stiff, and Read has put the eyes on with a vim so that Phil, looks scar j ed about as bad as if the rebels were af ter him. Now don't be afraid lest I dilate on the Piegan massacre. That's your thunder, and I'll not trench upon your delightful field. We merely suggest that Read has plenty of material here i for his harp and brush. Anna virum -1 r Medical Commencement. The Medical Department of the Uni versity of Pennsylvania held its com mencement at the Academy of Music on the Uth inst., at 12, m. The Acad emy presented a brilliant sight. An immenseand fashionable audience gree ted the graduates, and tender hands provided cart loads of boquets to cheer their hearts. Prof. Leidy said in his address that the physician's path was not strewn with flowers, but from the appearance of the stage we had an Idea that the ladies intended to start, them on that kind of a path, at least. Hassler's Grand Orchestra discours ed choice selections. It compares fa vorably with theGerinania. The pray er was offered by Rev. Dr. Krauth, and the Degrees were conferred by the Pro vost of the University upon one hun dred and thirteen Graduates. Among this number Were Dr. Simon Gump of Bedford and Dr. Albert Eiay of Schells* burg. These young gentlemen Were diligent students, passed splendid ex aminations, and now enter upon im portant fields of duty with flattering prospects. We had the pleasure of at tending several lectures with them, and of frequent association and are sorry they have gone. Success go with them. The Valedictory was delivered hv Prof. Jos. Leidy. M, D. L. L. I). He is rather awkward on the stage, but has a handy way of putting things with the pen, especial ly against quack and empirics. Such as is just and true—and his whole ad dress was characte'istic of the man, a noble and outspoken defense of none but educated physicians, and .n exalted love for the work in which he Is so eminent. The exercises were conclu ded by the presentation of "tokens of affection"—don't tell it out of the city —to the graduates, and Au Rev< ir Galop by the Orchestra. We attended ihe Jefferson Com mencement on Saturday. There were one hundred and sixty two graduates. But we find our letter already too long and must close ; ai tho' it is like parting at the door with a lady, we have so much to say. But unlike a woman's talk this letter has an end. LINDEN. i'OHuicNMWXIL WASHINGTON, March 1-5. In the United States Senate yester day Mr. Sumner made a personal ex planation relative of General Prim's cbaige against hi in of falsehood. lie said that the facts were that a gentle man purporting to be an agent of Gen eral Prim had interviewed him last spring on the sul ject of "settling the Ciban question in a manner advanta geous to the finances of Spain." Mr. Sumner introduced an important bill to strengthen the legal reserves of the national banks, and to provide for the rem in pt ion of the specie payments. The Georgia hill was taken up, and Mr. Trumbull delivered a forcible speech against the continuation of the Kadical outrages upon the Southern States. Mr. Stewart spoke in favor of the bill to the hour of adjournment. In the House of Representatives, Mr. Rogers, of Arkansas, introduced a bill to abolish female clerks in the govern ment departments. A free-trade reso lution, by Mr. Marshall, was dodged by the Radicals and buried in the Committee on Ways and Means. The bill paying Mrs. Edwin M. Stanton a year's salary of a Justice of the Su preme Court of the United States passed by a party vote. The Deficiency bill was then discussed in Committee ot the Whole, and Messrs. Niblack and Voorhees made excellent speeches in defence of the career and policy of the Democratic party. WASHINGTON, March 16. How to radicalize Georgia was the theme in the United States Senate yes terday. Mr. Edmunds made an able speech against the bill. He had the honesty to proclain that it was better that Georgia should go Democratic ten thousand times over than that such a precedent as the bill proposed should be established. Mr. Drake offered an amendment to enable the legisla tures and governors of reconstructed States to call upon the President for troops, and to declare martial law in disaffected districts. This proviso is marvellously like the bill just introdu ced into the Britisii Parliament to keep down Ireland. The Senate passed the House bill to present Mrs. Elwin M. Stanton with a year's pay of an associ ate justice. Mr. Wilson introduced a bill to revise the general regulations for the government of the army. Our Indian policy was discussed, and sev eral Senators defended the Quaker pol icy of the President. The Funding bill passed by the Senate was introdu ced in the House of Representatives, | and after discussion was referred to the i Ways and Means Committee. The i House theu passed the bill introdu ced by General Butler, from the Re j construction Committee, admitting the State of Texas to representation in | Congress. The Deficiency bill was ta ken up and debated during the after noon and evening sessions. The ap propriation for the New York Postof- Hce building now going up in the park was passed. The Senate Committee on Foreign Relations have reported, five against two, in favor of rejecting the treaty for the acquisition of San Domingo. This kills it, as a two-thirds vote of the Senate will be necessary to ratify. Secretary Fish sent to the Senate yesterday a list of the States purpor ting to have ratified the fifteenth ameudmeut. They are thirty in num ber, and include New York, Indiana, and Georgia. The discussion that has arisen in Madrid over the propriety of ceding Cuba to the United Sta'.es is as signifi cant as it is sudden. That any num ber of journals should take the affirma tive, and that the controversy on this point is permitted to continue, certain ly give the proposition an impor tance that can hardly be estimated. A Madrid despatch says that some of these organs of public opinion argue that as now the insurrection in Cuba is nearly subtitied, and the dignity of Spain properly asserted, it would be good policy to cede the island and thus avoid future complications. The only objections urged by the pa)*;rs oppos ed to this are that the craving for A me. ican gold should be subordinated to .Spanish honor, and that tho agitation of the question is premature at pres ent. Outof these discussions may e ventually grow the solution of the Cu ban problem. Another insurrection has broken out in Hayti. The Picket in the southern department are in arms against the new provisional government and the partizansof the late President si-.lnave are joining them. The government has seut reinforcements to the army in the field, and several war steamers have also been dispatched to thesouth. ThusSaget is hardly in his seat before heiscalled upon to go through the ex periences of his predecessor- Sal nave. The British uud French government nave refusen to recognize the provis ioal govern men.'; pntil it assumes the debt* of the Salnavo administration. Havana despatches announce the burning of more plantations by thein surgents. One of the sufferers is an A inerican lady, a Mrs. Emerson. Cap tain-General De Br.daß Is reported *.o be very uneasy about the visit ofQeu eral Quesadato the United States. A heavy battle has been fought in Mexico between the Potosi revolution ists and government troops, in which the latter were completely victorious, killing 300 of their enemy and taking 1,000 prisoners. The insurrection a gainst Juarez appears to be on the wane; hut, these advices, it is proper to state, are from government sources. Financial difficulties appear to trouble Mexico quite as much as the rising of discontented chieftains. Every day in March the distance between the earth and the sun is in creased 1,007 miles. At the beginning of the month the distance was 92 212,- 632 miles. Astronomically spring be gins on the 20th of March, when the sun crosses the equator.

New York mayl4yl Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup, i Seaweed Tonic and Mandrake l'ills. willcnreCon | sumption, Liver Complaint, and Dyspejsia, if ta ken according to directions They are all three to be taken at the same time. They cleanse the ; stomach, relax the liver, and put it to work : then ! the appetite becomes good; the food digests and makes good blood ; the patient begins to grow in fiesh ; the diseased matler ripens in the lungss and the patient outgrows the disease and git, well. Tbifc is the only way to cure consumption To these three mo.lioinds Dr J H. Schenck, of Philadelphia, owes bis unrivalled success in the treatment of pulmonary consumption. The Pul rnonic Syrop ripens the morbid matter in the i lunrs. nature throws it off by an easy expectora tion, for when the phlegm or matter is ripe, a slight eougl: will throw it off. ml the patient has rest and the lungs begin to heal. To do this, the Seaweed Tooio and Mandrake Pills must t-e freel f used to cleame the stomach and liver, so that the Pulmonic Syrup and the food will make good blood Schenck's Mandrake Pills act upon the liver, removing all obstructions, relax the ducts oC_the gall-bladder, the bile starts freely, and the liver is soon relieved ; the stools will show what the Pills eau do ; nothing has ever been invented ex cept calomel (a deadly poison which is verv dan gerous to use unless with great care), that will unlock the gall-blad ler and starts the secretions of the liver like Schenck's Mandrake Pills Liver Complaint is one of the most prominent causes of Consumption. Schenck'BSeaweed Tonic is a gentle stimulant and alterative, and the Alkali in the Seaweed, which this preparation is made of, assists the stomaoh to throw out the gastric juice to dissolve the food with the Pulmonic Syrup, and it is made into good blood without fermentation or souriog in the stomach. The great reason why physicians do not cure consumption is, thoy try to do too much, they give medicine to stop the cough, to stop chills, to stop night sweats, hectic fever, and by so doing they derange the whole digestive powers, locking up the seortMons, and eventually the patient sinks and did' Dr. Sobeuck. in his treatment, does not try to stop a cough, night sweats, oh/lls. or fever. Re move the cause, and they will all stop of thoir own accord. No one can be cured of Consump tion, Liver Complaint, Dyspjpsia, Cataarh, Can ker, Ulcerated Throat, unless the liver and stout aoh are made healthy. If a person has Consumption, ofeourse the lungs in some way are diseased, either tubercles, ab scesses, bronchial irritation, pleura adhesion, or the lungs are a mass of inflammation and fast de caying. In such oases what rnnst be done ' It is not only tee lungs that are wasting, but it is the whole body. The stomach and liver have lost their power to make blood out ot food. Now the only chance is to take Schenok's three medicines, which will bring up a tone to the stomach, the ftatient will begin to want food, it will digest easi y aud make good blood : then the patient begins to gain in flesh, and as soon as the body begins to grow, the luigscominer.ee to heal up, and the pa tient gets fleshy and wejl. This Is the only way to cure ounsuinp* ion. When there is no long disease, and only Liver Complaint and Dyspepsia, Schenck's Seaweed Tonic and Mandrake Pills are sufficient without rbe Pulmonic Syrup. Take the Mandrake Pills freely in all billions complaints, as they are per fectly harmless Dr. Schenck, who has enjoyed uninterrupted health for many years past, and now weighs 225 pounds, was wasted away to a mere skeleton, in the very last stage of Pulmonary Consumption, his physicians having pronounced bis case hope less and abandoned him co bis fate He wasoured by the aforesaid medieices, and since his recovery many thousands similarly afflicted have used Dr. Schenck's preparations with tho same remarkable success Full directions aooompanying each, make it not absolutely necessary to personally see Dr Schenck, unless the patients wish their lungs examined, and for this purpose he is professional ly at his Principal Office, Philadelphia, every Saturday, where all let ers fur advioe muift be ad dressed.
