BELLEFONTE, MAR 21,1861.
Secession.
Secession appears to be the order
•f tbe day. Since tbe secession of tbe South
ern States we have daily accounts of seces
•ion sn smaller scales. We have seen no
tices to the effect that cities desirtd to seoede
*nd become seperate " Governments," end
netioes of counties desiring to secede from
States, and townships from counties, and in
faot we saw ods letter published by an indi*
vidual in which be filed his intention to ee
eede from the Government and make his
plantation a separate institution. But the
latest act of this kind, of which we have any
knowledge, is in progress ia our county at
tbe present time. The townships on the other
aide of the mountain having made known
their desires to become a.separate county, in
the abape of a petition to the Pennsylvania
Legislature. The Rericliter of the 15th inst.,
has the following on the subject:
New Connty.
" Below we print a petition which has been
put in cirulation for a new county. It may
be well to state in connection, the reasons
which are given for this movement. There
seems to be a general complaint among the
honest farmers of this side of tbe county, of
a long continued system of impositions which
have been practiced by a set of managers on
the other side, and particularly in Bellefonte,
by whieh the taxpayers of the county have
always been subjected to onorous taxation,
and that this evil is fearfully on tbe increase.
A Court House was built but a few years
ago, upon whioh thousands of dollars, it is
charged, have been squandered, and every
year, as will be seen by the published official
statements, the taxpayers are called upon to
pay enormous bills for repairs at this new
building! Looking over the Statement just
published for the last year, we find a total
for repairs and other extras of $953,13$
among which
D. K. Tate, for repairing Court House roof, sfi.S7

W. 6. Wolf, for Tinning " " 148,96
Shingles, for " " 3R,SO
A pretty little bill of repairs to foot on a
building which has just lately been comple
ted 1 We think the contractor should be held
responsible for all repairs made inside of ten
years after the completion of the building.—
The county is groaning under a heavy debt,
en aocount of the new Court House, and yet
they cry for an expensive jail. No man on
this side believes that should this 'work be
eonsmenced. it will be completed undsr SBO,-
000. Then after this, tbe people are very
apprehensive of baring a poor-house sad
died upon them, which, with buildings and
farm, would ocst at least §IOO,OOO, so that
shey look forward to be oppressed in a few
years, with a debt of $200,000, should they
be so unfortunate ai to remain part and par
cel of Centre county. This idea is enough to
make every tax-payer on this side, see the
advantages, of ene"dy "secession." There is
a unanimity of feeling in favor of a new coun
ty, in all the districts mentioned in the peti
tion ; and tbe people feel confident that we
can erect all the necessary buildings, for less
money than the above estimated cost of the
new jail.
A name for tbe new county has not yet
been determined upon, and evety one is free
to make suggestions—we would propose ei
ther Pcnn or Jackson.
Jo the Honorable, the Senate and House of
Representatives of the Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania, in general Assembly met:
The Petition of tbe undersigned citizens ol
Centre county, State of Pennsylvania, respect
fully represents; That your petitioners pe
tition for the erection of a New County, to be
railed and to coo
tain the following territory, to wit: All the
territory within boundaries of the Townships
of Haines, Miles, Penn, Gregg, Potter, liar
ris and Farguson, in Centre county, and ly
ing South and West of Nittany Mountain,
subject nevertheless to the provisions of Ar
ticle XII orf tba fast amendments of tbe Con
stitution, requiring a vote of the people there
en. Your petitioners believe that the popu
lation cf the above named townships com
prise about one half of tbe whole population
of Centre county, and residing in those rich
and fertile districts, comprising, Brush,
Penns, and George's Tallies and the Spruce
Creek Settlements, and are justly entitled to
be formed and erected in a New County, hav
ing more than 4CO square miles of territory
within ite boundaries, and would from a com
pact County, and when so formed and erpc
ted, your petitioners will be relieved from
burthensoaoa and onorous taxation, now im
posed upon them, and take their stands as
one of the confederated counties of the State.
And your petitioners will ever pray, &o."
Coal Oil for th.B Hair-
It is said, with what
troth we do not know, that in addition to the
other virtues belonging to tbe coal oil now
being pumped in such extraordinary abun
dance in western Pennsylvania, another vir
tue has been discovered by a distinguished
chemist to be possessed by this mineral oil,
which will, in the estimation of many, quite
threw the others in the shade. In a word,
the oils, just as they are pumped from the
bosom of the earth, are said to be a certain
cure for baldness ; wherever hair has ever
grown hair may be made to grow again by
ite application ; where it ia getting thin, the
oil will strengthen it; where it is turning
gray, the oil will renew its youth and bring
it back to its fading color. Wigs, toupees
and scrathee are forever rendered null, void
and of no effect whatever. Nature, in her
bounty, has superseded forever all necessity
for the artificial and fiimsy disguises. The
oil is said to renew the hair on simple vege*
table principles, by re-invigorating the bulbe
beneath tbe scalp and renewing the energy.
Should this discovery prove to be all that is
claimed for ijfc, what changes will be wrought
in the condition of the human family—long
years of venerableness will be taken away,
and miracles of youthful vigor will be wro't
in its appearance.
Hartin Stone, Auctioneer-
During the ipring
season many persons in this yieinity intend
selling out at Public Sale, aad to them it is
highly important to secure tho services of a
competent and experienced Auctioneer. We
bag leave to recommend Mr. Martin Stone
as the most suitable person to aot in this ca*
pacity. On the Auctioneer, depends, to a
great extent, the price at which an article
will ba disposed of, and we have the word of
those who have tried Mr. Stone, that bo will
sacrifice no article of goods. He is always
ready and always punctual. Ha may be
found, generally, at his obapp store on Alle
gheny street.
Our National Airs.
The effect which our good
old National Airs have upon the true Amer
ican citizen, ie truly wonderful. It matters
not in what clime ha may be found, wheth
er upon the snow-clad summits of the Alps,
or among his own green mountain tops ;
whether upon the sterile and sandy deserts
of the Old World, or upon the fertile praries
of bis Native land, the inspiring notes of
"Hail Columbia'* or "The Star Spangled
Banner" stirs up all the patriotism in his
soul, and makes him feel proud of bis Conn
try, her Liberty and her Institutions, No
matter under what circumstances he may
be placed, whether favorable or otherwise,
the stirring notes of "Yankee Doodle" stirs
up his nature, electrifies his frame and pats
him in good condition to meet either friend
or foe. Under the influence of the music of
their national airs Americans have fought
to the mouth of the cannon and the point of
the bayonet. To these tunes our fathers
marched forth to meet and battle with the
foes of freedom, when every foot left a track
of blood ; and to these tunes we their sons
will march until death shall stay our foot
steps. They were sung by our ancestors
long after their struggles for Liberty Lad
ended, and as well might you attempt to
move the everlasting bills as to attempt to
take their sacred notes from the mouths of
their children. So long as our government
has a place among the nations of the earth,
so long at' the American Eagle hovers over
our land, so lor.g will the mountain echoes
of America resound with the notes of our
National airs.
At the present time when our nation is
rent in twain, when brother is raising his
hand against brother, and traitors are loud
ly clamoring, these tunes have an untold in
fluence. The bitterest feelings have been
smoothered and the loudrst quarrelings si
lenced by the timely discoursing of one of
these tunes. And when upon certain occa
sions these airs were 'hissed' by traitors and
fools, the highest degree of excitement pre
vailed. There are, in the Union a few men,
and thank God they are few, who would, if
they had the power, banish this music from
our midst; but their words and writings
meat with the just indignation of freemen.
An editor in Motile tries bis spite on "Yan
kee Doodle'" by calling it a "musical aboms
ination" and saying that he never heard it
but with indignation. lie says "It was ever
a cold bath to every throb of patriotism, ev
er made our flesb creep and our soul sink
into the souls of oar boots—not on account
of its name, but because it is a mean, sneak
ing, be -li tt ling, contemptible tune." Mark
that man Traitor I Benedict Arnold would
baye blushed at suoh language. We doubt
very much whether an emotion of patriotism
ever throbbed in that heart, and we believe
that the habitation ol bis soul is in cl se
proximity with the soles of his boots. Let
such men write against it and let Southern
traitors hiss it when they wish ; but Yankee
boys will continue to whistle Yankee Doodle,
an J if they wage war against us we will
£ei out our drums and fifes ann hunt up all
the old muskets which they have not stolen
from us, and we will whip them effectually
to that same old tune.
You Must Stop It.
We print a piper, and
as printers, we have certain duties that tbe
law requires us to pCrform. Among other
things we are requjred to publish a notice of
all persons who sell liriuor, notifying the
publia that they have tfckon out license.—
Now there are about thirty places in this
town where whiskey, gin and brandy are
dealt out, not one half of which are licensed,
and if returnrd would be liable to pay a
heavy fine. We get one dollar for every li
cense notice we publish, and iD place of get
ting thirty not'ees and thirty dollars we do
not get more than ten notices, and not that
many dollars. We are bound that in the fu
ture we will attend to our jrart of the busi
ness, and on and after the first day of April
next, any person we know to sell liquor with
out license will be promptly returned and
noticed in this paper. Bellefonte, however,
is not the ooly pi ice where liquor is vended
against the law ; every little town in the
county has four or five doggeries wheie the
vile stuff is sold, and Dot one of them are li
oeosed to sell. All these places will be
watched by our friends, and let he who dares,
sell a drop and we will return him forthwith.
We have laid a duty of one dollar on every
liquor dealer in tbe oounty, and we are bound
to colleot our levenue. Remember we are
in favor of compulsion, and if you don't pay
willingly we will ooerce you with the law.
Notice,
Soon tbe Ist of April will be here,
and many of our subscribers, will doubtless
change tbe place of residence, and it is neo
ossary for us to be notified of the change, at
the proper time, eo that we may be able to
■end them our paper. As it would save
a postage stamp and tbe trouble of remitting
another letter, we suggest that those who
notiiy us of their change of residence will
remit as the amount of their indebtedness,
in the same letter.
Pleasant Gap Store.
Wbile at Pleasant Gap
the other day we called at the store of Mr.
Campbell. We examined many of bis goods,
and so far as we may be allowed to judge,
we think his stock far superior to that gen
enally found in country stores, We also
found that his prices were very low. Mr.
Campbell is very polite and obliging, and
customers will god it pleasant as well as prof
itable to deal with him.
Public Sale.
Martin Stone, Auotieneer, baa
received instructions to sell for Mr, R. D.
Cummings, at Port Matilda, on the 25th inst.'
a large number of horses, cattle, hogs and a
number of wagons, buggies, as well as a lot
of lumber, and various other article*.

We wish to eall the attention of our
readers to the card of Mr. J. D. Wingate.—

Moving.
The time for moving is fast ap
proaching. " Oh, that it was over I " says
some weakly better half. It has been as
serted that live times moving is equivalent to
or.ce burning out. Much time is lost in get
ting ready to move. Many times the great
er part of the household goods are put up at
auction, and sold at ruinous rates; because
they must go. Money and time are spent is
the act of moving. Money and time are sac
rificed in fixing up, and replacing that which
is destroyed ; and then it takes a month or
two to find a person's self at home agaiD.—
After which, it may be discovered, that this
place, too, has its inconvenienoes, perhaps
more than that left. That place which has
no inconvenienoes, has not yet been found.
Where can be the propriety of tenant* mere
ly changing bouses and landlords; the one
moving out where the ether moves in? —
There is something ludicrous in this.
How nice it would be for tenants, who
move, to resolve and stick to the resolution,
" that this be the last time I move till I can
move to my own property, or till I am quite
certain that I will be the actual gainer by
such an act. " There are men who spend as
much money for tobacco alone, to say noth
ing of other superfluities, in from four to six
years, as would buy a very ccmfortabie and
convenient home. Of course, the amount
spent each day seems but a trifle, but at the
end ot the year it is tbe same, whether paid
out at once, or spent in dribs. Let the cred
ulous try—deposit the, money in a safe in
stead of an unsafe, where it either evaporates
in emoke or is expeotorated in filthy juice.
Again, bow much the tenant's home could
be improved, if a little more attention were
paid to conveniences ; of which the culture
of fruit forme an important part. That great
luxury, the Peach, may be raised from the
seed in from two to four years. How grate
ful would be many a little Pettie Darling
for such a treat, and it* culture would cost
nothing except the throwing out of the seeds
and a little letting alone as the tree grows
up.
Mr Thos. J. Taylor.
While in Milesburg a
few days ago, we paid a visit to the new pic
ture car of T. J. Taylor, and had the pleas
ure of examining some of the finest photo
graph* we ever saw- Our attention was par
ticularly called to some photographic views
of tbe Farm School buildings, which were ta
ken by Mr. Taylor on the 22d of February
last. This set of pictures consists of five
differeut views of the school buildings, which
were taken to liarrisburg to undergo the in
vestigation of a committee appointed to
vestigate the claims of tbe school. We never
saw anything in the picture line to excel this
set of vies. Sinco these pictures were ta
keu he has had orders for fifty-one pictures
of the buildings. We saw many other pic
tures of different kinds that cannot be exc 11
ed, if equaled, in the country.
Valentine's Railroad.
The Messrs. Valen
tine are busily engaged at present in build
ing a Iliilroad to extend from the terminus
of the Beilefmte & Snowehoe Railroad to
their iron works above tewn f The road cros
ses Spring Creek a short distance above tbe
stone bridge. It also crosses Logan's branch
a short distance below the forge. This work
is being put through with such energy, that,
although oommenccd but a few weeks ago,
will, it is expected, be in running order by
the first ot May. When finished it will be a
great convenience to tbe Company, as it will
enable them to get their ccal directly from
the mines without obange of conveyance.—
This Company is doing an extensive business
at the present time, with fair prospects of an
increase.
Popular Tunes.
During tbe late political
campaign no tune was so eminently popu
lar as Dixie's Land ; it was in tke mouth of
every one, and called for upon all occasions
With the excitement of the campaign how
ever, it has died out to a considerable extent.
We understand that another song is very
popular in the oities, at the prespnt time,
entitled " Bully for us." It has not reached
us yet, but we understand it has for its sub
jeot the condition of our present National af
fairs, and has particular reference to Msjor
Andersons conduct. We hope it will come
along this way soon.
To Our Friends.
Again we request our friends
in the different townships to send us local
items. Sehd us everything—who is mar
ried, who dead, who is building a Dew bouse
or'barn, where new churches are being huil',
accidents, —in short everything of interest.—
Send us tbe foots, no matter in bow orude a
form, and we will cheerfully arrange them
for publication. Who will begin ?
A Boisterous Row-
A miscellaneous row was
kicked up on the corner of Allegheny and
Bishop streets, and the result was, that one
of the participants, we do not know who, was
lodged jn limbo. That vicinity is becoming
notorious for rowdyism and vulgarity, and is
almost nightly the scene of misconduct and
debauch, Our officers will do well to beep
their eyes upon it. •

Complimentary Suppers.
Our Boalsburg mu
sical friends have been feaating during the
past week at a ((rand rate. On Thursday
evening last, Mr. Geo. Musser gave tbein a
splendid supper at bis residenos near Boals
burg. We are informed quite a number of
persona were present beside the Band, and
all had a good time generally, music and
dancing being kept up until a lata hour- On
Friday evening Mr. James Johnston gave an
other supper to the Band, and we are inform
ed it was a magnificent ufiair.

I hiving inherited a Scrofulous infection, 1- have suffered
from in yariaus ways for years. Sometimes it burst
out in Ulcers on my bauds and arms; sometimes it
turned inward and distressed me at the stomach. Two
years ago it broke out ou my head and covered my sculp
aud ears with one sore, whioh was painful and loathsome
beyoud description. 1 tried many medicines and several
physicians, but without much relief from any thing, iu
fact, the disorder grew worse. At length 1 was rejoiced
to read in the (loapol Messenger tiiat you had prepared
an Alterative (Sarsaparilla), for I knew from your reputa.
tiou that any thing you made must he good. 1 sent to
Cincinnati and got it, aud used jt till it cured n;e. ] took
it, as you advise, ill small doses of a teaspoon ful overs
month, and used almost three buttles. New and healthy
■kin soon began to form under the scab, which after a
while fell off. My skin is uow clear, and 1 know by my
feelings thai the disease has gone from u\y system. Von
