He was also badly cut on the forehead. The Dauntless Fire Company, having resolved to feel the pulse of our people on the lecture business, propose to secure the services of one at least of the many emi nent orators now in the lecture field. It will be a shame to our town if this lauda ble enterprise does hot meet with proper encouragement. The Catholic Fair at Wiimdre' is said to be meeting with unbounded success, the candidates of both paities in particular vieing with each other in dispensing their loose change on behalf of the enterprise, being evidently impressed with the idea that the longest pole will knock the larg est persimmons. -Our old friend, John B. Iloss; Esq.. of Blacklick township, has our thanks for several specimens of the finest apples we have eaten this year. Mr. R. is now culti vating the choicest varieties of this fruit, and hopes in a few years to supply the market with apples that have never been equalled in this vicinity. -1 he school house at Manor station, Westmoreland -county, was destroyed by fire on Wednesday night of last week, to gether with all the furniture and a Sunday school library and cabinet organ belonging to the Methodist congregation at that place. The fire is supposed to have been the work of an incendiary. Don t visit Johnstown, fair or no fair, without looking in on James J. Murphy, S. J. Hess & Bro., aud J. T. Coppock. The two former deal in clothing and the latter in staple and fancy dress goods; and either or all of theni will give you full val ue for your money, and more too, just now, as they are all selling at panic prices. I he roof of a small lrame house in the eat end of town, owned and occupied by Wm. Adam Jones, caught fire from a de fective Hue, on Friday evening last, but the prompt arrival of the Hook and Ladder Company and the liberal application of water by the bucketful saved the building from destruction. Loss slight insured. A tract of land located in North Wood bury township, Blair county, says the Al toona Tribune, was recently discovered to bo vacant. The tract comprises about six acres and has a valuable bank barn and a good orchard thereon. A vein of iron ore is thought to underlie the tract. A disci ple of Ulackstone in that city claims the right of discovery in tne case. -John Hammer, oi conemaugii town ship, Somerset county, claims to have cra dled five acres of wheat, made eleven rod of fence, split sixty rails, and then went home and saddled his horse and rode to Davidsville and back, after which he cut a half cord of wood all between daylight and daik of one day recently. Hammer is for hire, either by the month or year. The question of the right of lion. James Potts to exercise the duties of Pres ident Judge of the District Court of Cam bria county, will be argued before the Su preme Court at Pittsburgh on next Tues day. The Attorney General, Hon.

Mr. L. D. Woodruff, junior editor of the Johnstown Democrat, was nominated for Cleik of the District Court by acclama tion on Saturday last. Some people there away accept the situation others don't. The "donters" are talking about trotting out Mr. Samuel Masters in opposition to Woodruff, and hope thereby to become masters of the situation. Which would be rough ou Woodruff. Posters have been printed by us this week for a public sale of live stock, farm ing utensils, grain, etc., by Mr. Wm. 1'. Buck, of Can oil townshijs on Saturday, Oct. 18th, and also for a similar sale of live stock, farming implements household goods, and a farm of 314 acres, partially covered with pine lumber, owned by Mr. Peter Mulvehill, of Pine township, In diana county, October 28th. A lad in the West ward was discover ed in the act of lighting a quantity of paper under the end of a board pile the other day, doubtloss intending to have a little conflagration all to himself. Of course his fun was prematurely nipped in the bud, and it is to be hoped that by wise counsel, if by no stronger admonition, he has been led to see and henceforth avoid such reprehensible amusement. The late panic may bring down the price of goods even in Ebensburg, but the man that can bring them down lower than M. L. Oatman hath not an abiding place in this community. Cause why, he buys for cash and sells for cash, and therefore can do better for his customers than those who do business on the played out credit system.

The same firm have a splendid array of beautiful jewelry, warranted gold, and other goods in the drug, book and notion line in great variety, all which are offered at the very cheapest rates and guar anteed of the very best quality. Not being aware of having received any courtesies from Mr. Thomas which one gentleman might not accord to another without thought of placing the recipient under special obligations, we can't see exactly where the Voice's charge of ingrat itude comes in, even if it were possible to base such a charge upon the strictures which have appeared in these columns rel ative to that gentleman's recent political course an eminently proper subject for newspaper comment, considering his for mer position in the Democratic party. Yet admitting, for argument sake, that we have been tfuilty of ingratitude, we feel sure that Mr. Thomas can find it in his heart to forgive us, since he has thrown the mantle of Charity over a paper which indulged nn more than one occasion in the loWest black guardism at his expense, and that too with out any cause or provocation whatever. John J. urtnger, a colored man from Schenectady, N. Y., who was stealing a ride between two exm-esscara. was innt&nt. ly killed in a wreck near Bolivar, West moreland county on Sunday morning last, and George Miller, assistant depot master at Pittsburgh, was severely cut about the bead at the same time. The wreck was caused by one freight train running into several cars which had become detached from another freight train immediately in front, the Southern Express in turn run ning into the second freight Tho engi neer and fireman of the passensrer train jumped to the ground before the crash came, and thus saved themselves from se rious injury, if not from instant death. As it was, both were slightly hurti The trains were moving slowly at the time; the Express having been previously flagged ; otherwise the result would, doubtless, have been much more disastrous. Prof. John A. Light, who made a bal loon ascension from the fair erounds at Indiana, Wednesday afternoon, landed in Blacklick township, this countv. rear Thos. Duncan's mill, shortly before 4 o'clock, having made the distance, about sixteen miles, in less than half an hour. His balloon, in descending, caught fast In the topmost branches of a couple of trees. some forty feet from the ground, and it was only by the most vociferous yelling on the part of the Professor that the atten tion of some men in the vicinity was at tracted to his perilous position, from which be was finally rescued, after a good deal of effort, by the aid of a long rope. The bal loon was considerably damaged by coming iu contact with the trees, but the intrepid aeronaut fortanately escaped without a scratch. The highest attitude attained by the air ship was i,900 feet. Mr. Light re turned to Indiana the same evening. Our old friend and former partner in the publication of the Johnstown Echo, O. Nelson Smith, Esq., a gentleman well and favorably known to nearly all the read ers of the Freeman, has, wo are pleased to note, struck a prolific streak of good luck in the shape of a rich and inexhaust ible deposit of copper ore. recently discov ered on land owned by him in Texas. Half a ton of the ore was sent to Wbeatley & Harvey's copper works, at Phconixville, Pa., and uiou being smelted, yielded fifty per cent, of copper ; but as that was only surface ore, Mr. Smith feels confident that his mine will "pan out" on an average not less thau seventy per cent, of pure copper. We hope his fondea expectations will be realized, and when he has amassed a fortune from his newly found placer, and is looking around for somebody upou whom to bestow a rich legacy, wo trust that he'll not forget his old "para" in poorer days. Mr. Smith is now at his home in Philadel phia, but will ere long return to Texa to commence operations. mm Barkers ix Council. A meetinir of Bankers, to the number of eighteen or twenty, representing a large majority of the banking houses in Cambria, Blair, Clearfield, Centre, Huntingdon, Juniata and Mifflin counties, waa held at the Ward House, in Tyrone, on Tuesday last, for the purpose of taking action, as we learn from the Altoona Irtbttne, relative to the present stringency of monetary affairs, caused by the recent heavy failures in the large cities, and devising means to prevent the currency from being taken out of the country. With said objects in view the following preamble and resolution was unanimously adopted : "Whekeas, The action of the city banks in refusing to pay out to country banks cur rency for any part of the balances they owe them, is calculated to draw the currency from the country and to disturb the whole business of the country ; and, Whekeas, The several banks represent ed at this meeting are desirous of avoiding everything that will tend to destroy confi dence ; therefore, Resolved, That they will do business so tar as practicable as usual with their cus tomers, and will not draw upon each other for currency for the present, and that they will extend to the business community all the aid in their power so that the financial difficulties existing elsewhere may embar rass the general business as little as possible, and to that end they ask the business men of their respective counties to aid in carry- inc out such measures as snail tend to pre vent the currency from being carried out of the country. A Thkilliuo Bt.ar Huict. Messrs. Aaron Dougherty and Andy Green are two backwoodsmen who have achieved no Unen viable reputation as Nimrods. They have spent much of their time in the primeval forests, and the number of bear, deer and smaller game killed by them is beyond com pute. They tell some thrilling anecdotes of experience in the rough wilds or the country where they have roamed anecdotes which, if embodied in book form, would make a narrative interesting as the story of Daniel Boone's campaigning in Kentucky in the days of long agone. From amongst the mass of recollections as detailed to the writer hereof by the two gentlemen named, we put on record this sketch : , A number of years ago, in midwinter, while trailing through the woods in Clear field towaahlp', Cambria county, for "signs," Messrs. Dougherty and Green struck the track of a bear. , It was the largest track of an animal that vpecies they had ever seen. So, like, thoroughbreds, as they are, and without wasting only the quantity of time necessary to see that their guns and knives were ready for immediate service, they hurried in pursuit of the monster. From indications, easily discernible by a true backwoodsman,. it. was speedily discov ered that the track was not more than an hour old, and so the utmost caution was ob served in following the trail. This was in the forenoon. Several deer were seen ttpd permitted to go unharmed during the hours which succeeded, and the presence of foxes and rabbits went unheeded ; for, though an unwieldly brute, the bear is a fast traveler, and the two hunters well knew that the report of a gun would cause It to take to the mountains, where pursuit would be unavail ing. The trail was a most eccentric one. It led Messrs. Dougherty and Green from the place where it started, across the Laurel run ; then here, and there, atd everywhere, but always going further away from the place of beginning. At about the hour of five o'clock, when the sun was fast disappearing beyond the mountain top, Mr. Dougherty by a peculiar whistle notified Mr. Green that he had treed the game. It had taken refuge in a log cabin. Both parties silently cocked their guns and unloosed their knives, and took cover behind a treo, to await a favorable oportunity to fire. In about five minutes, smoke began to emerge fro.nl th; chimney of the log cabin. Mr; Dougherty and Mr: Green agreed in saying that it was a most remarkable occur rence that thejr or either of them had ever before heard of a bear occupying a house with a chimney to it, and that chimney belching out smoke. A closer reconnoissance was had, and it was ascertained that the inmate of the cabin was a man. He was club-footed, each of his feet cloiwdy resembling an exaggerated let ter O. He had been prospecting around that day, and Messrs. Dougherty and Green had been following the imprints made in the 'snow by his feet. Altoona Tribune. Mountain Cake.

We would call the attention of our lead ers to the advertisement of Horace Waters & Son, headed, "Waters' Concerto Parlor Organs." and for a description of them we can't do better than copy the following : The Waters Concerto Tarlor Or C'ass. We are glad to chronicle any new thing, or any improvement niton an old one. that tends to )opularize music by rendering its study either easier or more attractive. Lately our attention has been called to a new patented stop added to the Waters ICeed Organ, called the Concerto Stop. It is so voiced as to have a tone like a lull, neb alto voice : it is especially "human" in its tone.

The ex perience of the past few months should be sufficient to convince our people that Eb ensburg could be made one of the most popular summer resorts in tne country, aud why it is not that already is owing to the short-sightedness of those in our midst who have capital but do not possess enter prise sufficient to move earnestly in the matter. Nature has been very proline in her gifts to this region, and if our moneyed men understood their own interests and the interests of the community in which they live, another year would not be al lowed to go by without the proper steps being taken for the erection of the most commodious buildings of which any local ity can boast. Ebensburg should have a f 100,000 summer resort at least, and now is the time to inaugurate the movement.
