'■BRING BACK THAT HAM'' — Petty Thi-.it ituj appears to be the order of the day in Bedford this winter, even down in MudTrwn several long Singered Gents who are pretty well known have been figuring rather strong on Woodpiles. Coal-houses and smoke-houi.es. On Tuesday morning last a ham was found in the alley leading east from Bedford St. It is about time that an example be made of some of these parties. Our citizens have been too lenient in this line; it they would have this prowling about at all hours of the night through stables smoke-houses and the like stopped and their property protected from fire and thieves let them act the part of good citizens and inform on the first rogue they catch in the act of stealing. A little watch ing is all that is necessary. TERRIBLE ACCWENT.— OQ Thursday last a terrible accident occurred at thestore of John Kaffensberger. iu Washington township in this County. Peter Good ling, a son of Jacob Goodling, who was returning from a gunning expedition and stopping at the store, met with an aeiinaintance by the name of Cornelius Ciepper. Something was said by Goodling. about selling ortradiug Ciepper hisgun, when the two, in a friendly way, commenced tuss ling with the weapon, which was heavily loaded. W bile thus engaged, it accidentally went off, the whole charge lodging in Good ling's stomach, indicting a fearful wound, and causing a laceration and protrusion of the bowels. Medical aid was immediately called in, but of no avail, as the injured man died about six hours afterwards.— York True Demi'-rat. MAIL ROBBERY. —On Friday evening last, sutne adroit mail robber succeeded in pur loiriing the through pouch from Philadelphia to Holiidaysburg, from the baggage car of the Branch Train, while the baggage master was attending to his work of leceiving baggage. In removing the through pouch, the Duncans ville pouch was drawn from the car and fell upon the track. This was run over and cut open by the wheels of the cars, and was afterwards found beside the track, with the mail matter uninjured. The stolen pouch was taken into a freight car, near the weigh scales, where it was cut open and the letters taken out and carried away. Mr. Patton tele' graphed to Philadelphia, and received an answer to the effect that there was not over ren letters in the pouch. This being the case ihe robber did not get much for his trouble. —Altoona Tribune. DEATRCCTIVE FIRE AT At. TOOK A—Pennsyl vania Railroad Company Car Shops Runted —Lass 8300,000. —A disastrous fire occurred at Altoona about eleven o'clock on Thursday night the 21st inst by which the freight car shops of the Pennsylvania Railroad company were destroyed. The building was a frame -trueture about two hundred feel in length, fifty feet deep and two stories high, and was used exclusively for the manufacture ot freight carß. The fires had beeu slacked nb,mt seven o'clock iu the evening after the workmen left the shop and it is not known positively how or where the fire originated. V\ ben first discovered the flames were burst ing out through the roof and windows, and although the firemen and citizens, a large number of whom were present, worked nobly they were unable to combat with the mad fury of the devouring elemeut, and it swept everything before it. The entire building, including ail the machinery in it and twenty four new freight cars were burned to ashes. A carload of laid and bacon, and one loaded with produce, which were standing on a sid ing near the burning building, and about thirty thousand dollars worth of lumber in the rear of the shop were also consumed. The entire loss by the fire is estimated at three hundred thousand dollars. There were between four and live hundred men employed in connection with the shop, many of whom will doubtless be thrown out of employment for a short time at least. It was one of the most disastrous fires that has ever occurred in that place. LIPEIJCCOTT 8 M.IUIZINL THE February number contains : Beyond the Breakers: A Novel.— Part 11.

The eagle which sailed over a Republican delegation from St. Ciairs viile on ac. rtain occasion and which was so portentous to the Democracy about thattim e was captured some time ago by a man in Ful ton County ana has since tallen into the hands of our friend ol the Express Office. Since his arrival here he has been christened Andy ' Johnson. 1 his has had a powerful effect on him, for notwithstanding his good treatment at the hands of the curious democrats, fresh meat has no charms for him, aud plump young chickens walk through his coop aud roost on his back with impunity, bis eyes are dull and heavy, probably going blind, and his countenance sullen and skeery as though he had stolen something; upon the whole in his present condition he is a type of decaying democracy, lie 'im loose for he is emacia ting. V INTER RULES.—Never go to bed with cold or damp feet. In going into a colder air, keep the mouth resolutely closed, that by compelling the air to pass circititously through the nose and head, it may become warmed before it reaches the lungs, and thus prevent those shocks and sudden chills which fre quently end in pleurisy, pneumonia, and other serious forms of disease. Never sleep with the head in the draft of an open door or window. Let more covering be on the lower liuibsthan on the body'. Have an extra cov ering within easy reach in case of a sudden and great change of weather during the night.. Never stand still a moment out of doors es pecially at street corners, after having walked even a short distance. Never ride near an open window of a vehicle tor a single half minute, especially if it has been preceded by a walk: valuable lives have been lost or good health permanently destroyed in this way. Never put on anew boot or shoe in the be ginning of a walk.— l'uik True Democrat. LAMENTABLE AND FATAL ACCIDENT.—The Fulton Democrat says that a most distressing and fatal accident occurred in Licking Creek township, last week. Mr. Franklin Sipes, son of Am s Sines, went into the woods, on Tuesday, (the sth in-t.,) to cut saw logs. He had felled a tree which lodged on another tree, near by. Whilst endeavoring to dis engage the partially (alien tree, it lurched away from the lodgement and striking Mr. Sipes in the face, prostrating him to the ground, falling across both of hi- legs. As m ; ght be supposed, very serious injuries were the result. Besides other severe contusions and serious wounds, the bones of both legs below the knees suffered dangerous com minuted fractures. The surgieal aid of Dr. 11. S. Wishart, of HarrisOnville, was called in, as speedily as possible, and the wounds most skillfully dressed and cared for: but the unfortunate man had been wounded past the help of surgery, and on Friday he died. ARSCONDIKO POSTMASTER. —On Thursday morning last, Andrew Dalryrnple, Postmaster at Brown's Mills, this county, left for pans ut,known. Before leaving he gave a letter to be deliveted to a gentleman who was on bis bond for the faithful Derfortnance of his duties. He hud told his wife on the morning of his departure that he was going to Cham bersburg, and would return in the evening. Evening catne, and night too, but no Andrew. His bondsman in the meantime had read the letter, and learned from its contents that he tvas in for about SSOO. The defaulter stated that he was sorry he liad to leave, sorry that there was such a deficiency in his accounts, but told his friend that he did not see any re lief except in his paying tbe money. He was very thankful he had signed hishoud.as well as for the many kindnesses he bad received at his hands. Tbe whole transaction is about tbe coolest piece of rascality we have heard of for some time. Dalryrnple has not yet been heard cf. — Franklin Repository. HARPER'S MAGAZINE lor February opens with. "A Sleigh-ride through Eastern Si beria,'" by Mr. T. W. Knox, which is an ex ceedingly interesting and well-written descrip 'ion of a country that is not tamiliar to Americans. Alice Carey has a pleasant lit tle poem. "Spent and Mis-Spent;" and "/.an zihar," by Mrs. C. L. Weeks, is such a de scription of the inner social life of Zanzibar as only a woman could discover or tell. "Executive Department and Seals," by B. J. Lossing. is instructive and well illustrated.

T Bit American Year-Book for 1869 is the title of the initial volume of a proposed an nual publication by O. D. CASE A Co., of Hartford, who have sent us a portion of its pages in advance. Since the '"American Almanac "Was discontinued in 18'ift, and the two years of the "National Almanac" in '63 and "6.4, the broad field of information thus to be annually harvested has been entirely un occupied. These publishers enter upon it now, appreciating the public needs, under standing the perils of the work, and confident of their ability to supply successfully and permanently, a year book and register which ghali be indispensable forthe intelligent pub lie The sheets before us fully sustain their promise to give to their work a broader and more valuable range than was covered bv either of the annuals above spoken of. As a compendium of astronomical, historical, religious, political, financial and con'mercial information, as well relative to our National and State governments as to foreign countries, aud carefully edited by competent writers, the completed volume of 80ft pages will satisfy so nearly all the current requirements of public men or private citizens, as to com mand for the enterprise n well-merited suc cess. It is to be issued in February, and travelling agents will soon place copies within every man's reach. To ORR PATROSS. —We have a large amount of money charged upon our books, but we find the money in our pocKet very scarce. Our friends have always responded liberally to our call and we trust that they will do so again. We have been building during the past season, and our carpenters, lumbermen, painters, in short every one we employ wants money. In fact money is the very thing we want ourselves. Now all we ask is that every one who owes us, however small the sum, will promptly pay us. Every dollar we get will pay two dollars of debts. We only want those who owe us to pay, in order that we may pay our debts; and we are quite sure that all this class will cheerfully aid us in so laudable an enterprise. Every one can tell the exact amount be owes us lor subscriptions by examining the label that he finds each week on his paper. Geo. Giles Apl. 1 08 indicates that Mr. Giles has not paid in advance tor his paper but has been going it on tick. Now if he knows how to save money he will hurry up and pay us $2.50 before Apl. 1. 09 for atter that time it will be $3.00; if he had paid for it nine months ago it would have only been $2.00 and he would have saved OOcts. In the came way each one can determine how much he owes, always re membering that it is economy to pay in ad vance. All who owe us for advertising if they have not received bills, can ascertain the amount by culling at onr office, where we will ' at all times be pleased to see them, and to ! receive and receipt "for all the little bills due as. Come along quick. W< want money badly or we would not ask for it. t. f. MARRIED. On the 2Ut inst., at the parsonage, in Martina burg, liy Rev. 11.I 1 . ShesJer, Mr. MAKIIX I.

Port Deposit, Md. piTTS B CRGII COM M EIICIAL DAILY AND WEEKLY. Now is the time to Subscribe—Grant's Election a New Era. EVERY MAN SHOULD KNOW WHAT 18 ! GOING ON. The election of Grant marks an era in the his tory of the country. The future is full of prom ise. We stand on the thresh hold of a period of remarkable interest. If the Presidential cam paign awakened a desire for reading and intelli gence, the election of Grant must create a wish among all classes to be well informed at every step in the career on which, as a people, we are about to enter. Thar people having elected a Preside nt by an unexampled majority, they will i naturally wish to observe him at every stop, know of every event as it happens, and have no intelligent uuderst tnding of men and thing* not only in our own country but throughout the world. More than ever now a jjpod newspaper becomes essential to every man, who would keep himself informed concerning passing events. THE PITTSBURGH COMMERCIAL has won a place among the first journals of the country, and by common consent is the BEST PAPER IN PENNSYLVANIA. We GIVE ALL THE NEWS. And the habitual reader of the Commercial will find hira-elf well informed on all topics of gener al interest. Few papers in the country have eo expensive a correspondence, none ha* eo com plete arrangements #<>r gathering the news, and no other pays so much attention to adapting what it print* to the wants and associations of its read ers. J'he Commercial is NOT MERELY A POLITICAL PAPER. An advocate of the principles of the Republican party, it returns to political friends and foe a thousand times what he pays. THE DAILY COMMERCIAL, since it was established, has been ahead in giving the latest, fullest and most reliable news. Sot [,r •fessing to be a party organ, and wi-hing not to be understood as the instrument of any set. ecet or combination, yet devoted to the great principles which have so signally triumphed in Grant's election, the C mmrrcial claims to be an educator ot the public mind, the medium through which it will find expression, and the advocate and friend of troth io all things. If it isthe organ of anything, it is of PEN NSY LVA NIA INTERESTS, more especially of the great industrial classes, with whom it is in the closest sympathy, and of whom it is a part. As a commercial paper, es pecially in its EXTENSIVE AND RELIABLE M ARKET RE. PORT?. the Com mo <-ial is recognized every wh< re as au tnority, aoil it is daily read and relied on in Ranks, Counting Room*, hy the Mechanic, Trades man and Reprentafire, Man of every calling. In a word, if you desire the latest and alt the news; the tulle.-1 and meat complete market re port-', the choicest general reading and literature and a complete newspaper in every respect, take the commercial. THE WEEKLY COMMERCIAL, IS a very largo sheet, each number containing an aim-unt ot tending equal to a dollar volume, pre pared expressly tor those who desire in one yaper ail the News, and Newspaper reading enough for a family, io this end wc give in the Weekly Commercial the particulars of leading event* whether of POLITICS, FINANCE, HOME OCCURRENCES OR FOREIGN I.N i ELLIGEM K.
