X"x o .Alio i THURSPAY:::::::::::::":NOVBMBER 5'. LOCAL AND PERSONAL Chit-Chat with Our Readers. Halloween,. -the revening. preceding -All Hallow or all Saints' Day, occurred on Saturdaylast. Of course, the traditions and quaint pleasantries clustering around this historic epooh are too well known to 'require repetition at our hands, Every one is familiar with them, or at bast bought to be, seeing that Burns' inimitable poem, "Halloween," is so easy of access nowadays. The passion of prying into . obscurity and attempting to read events Hd in the dim haze of the future Jhrough the aid of incantations and charms-forms a striking feature of human nature in its rude and imperfect state. At one time, in the.lang -syne, these superstitious ob EerVances so cannlly described by ifurns were al but universal. Witches, fairies, elves, and goblins of high and low degree, were not only implicitly believed in by jvhole communities, but the simplest and taesfc common-place affairs of life were made the subjects of pow-wowings and nosseasieal ceremonies. At the present time, even, by a certain class, signs and omens are still indulged in to instance, ome folks can by no possibility be pre vailed upon to kill their, cattle, cuttheir finger-nails, or trim their hair, except in a certain sign of the moon, while others carry swine's teeth in their pocket as a .preventive of. the toothache, go into ago nies over the upsetting of a salt-collar at table, and eschew Briday as an unlucky day. VO dallr.ess 1 portion of the truly blest ! , Cilai, sheltered haven of eternal rest." Incantations "and pow-wowings, however, -are about played out at the present junc ture. Their . day is past, to return no more forever. The entire structure of Fairvdem and huiabuggerv in general has "been deiselished, and "Lchabod" written j. nrtst thanks to our Common VU . J- Schools and a more enlightened era for 'the wbkh. No one .now possesses the requisite faith for a successful belief in 'the manifestly absurd theory, unless he be h confirmed idiot or one whose early edu cation wuufojtunately totally neglected. SV wo go- TJw world is becoming more and more enlightened : errors are being ; eradicate:. false estimates ana.iaca3 cis ;jpated by the true the chaff is being separated froin the wheat and cast aside. Halloween is held in remembrance only through respect to tie talents of one of the world's great, poets it and Its super stitious surroundings would have long einc been forgotten were it not for the peculiar attraction thrown around them by the refinement of letters, v. To. those who still persist, on Hallow een, in the performance ' of any or all of those weird . charms descanted upon by Burns, we would suggest . another and more modern, warranted by an exchange to bo ?s charming as any in the market Scotch or otherwise. To wit : "Take a black cat and a negro woman ; go with them up a dark alley at midnight, repeat ing the words goodnessgracioushoopde doodeudo sixteen times in Dutch pull the hair of the negro woman and the tail or the cat, by jerks, and the first word that either of them utters will bo the name of your intended." Apropos of Halloween, the subject ot nuts is in order. The yield of all kinds of nuts indigenous to this section, but es pecially of chestnuts, is very largo this fall. -Perhaps it has never struck our readers, but it is nevertheless a fact, that quite an extensive trado is carried on in this latter article from this point. Many Ushels of the fruit, probably thousands, are -tnu&iHy ' teent to Philadelphia and Pittsburg, to afford our. city cousins a toothsome alleit somewhat flatulent mor sel of refreshment for. stray 'moments pnatched from business; Chestnuts sell here at $3.00 per bushel, or ten cents per quart when purchased by the "small" as a pWd in a certain store, we remem ber, used to designate. These figures are considerably steeper than old-time prices, but, then, these are war times, and people wftchew, and tobacco's riz out of sight and ain't good at that, and the next best thing must be something else. In fact, cheetnuts are chestnuts like everything else. - Apropos of nothing : All passes on the Ebensburg & Creeson Branch Railroad and thero were not a few in existence were nullified by order of the Penna. RR. Co. about a week since, and deadheads given to understand, that henceforth they We Tequired to duly arm and equip them selves each with a ticket, (price 40 cents, with ten cents excess when bought on the fir,) ju?t like "nny other man." This is put forth on the economical pica, not that "the Btanch" was not doing a smash ing business hetofore, but, rather, that it may do a considerably smashinger bus iness hereafter, and pay the stockholdcr a spicy little dividend on their, respective investments. All of vjch, certainly, is all right, ajjrtJ not to be complained of. We merely mention ihemiAter for the benefit of deadheads in general, that' they may know that, unlike tfre second party in-euchre, they cannot "pas?" ad libitum, and that they may govern themselves ac cordingly. Even printers' passes are not exempt from the operations of this sweep ing' abrogation I . Exemptions from mieDraft.

The greatest excitement lately wasthe appearance of the veritable Dan Rice, and his "great show." Daniel received a liberal amount of the postage ticked?, and it is reasonable to presume that his patrons got their money lack, as everybody appeared satisfied with his per formances. In addition to the circus, we have had the sleight-of-hand performer, Anderson, at; Union Hall,-for several days. The "now ou see ft and tow you" don't see it" arrangement .was not very well appreciated, as the conjure? conjured buff slim audiences' His "spectral ghost" was an exceedingly -large humbug. At Post Office Hall we have an itinerant music' lecturer, whose lectures are illustrated by music on several instruments. Our citi zens do not appear to have much "music in their souls," a3 his audiences are also small. Another of those sad accidents which for a moment pale the cheek of the gay and thoughtless, but which te the ardent Christian are but instances of the insecure tenure by which human life is held, and the necessity of being always prepared for sudden death, occurred here on Thursday last. A- miner, named Peter Murphy, while at hi3 work on that morning, was instantly killed by a mass of oal lalling upon him 4 His head was crushed to a jelly, and his brains scattered among the coal. It i3 but a short time since the de ceased recovered from a sinailar accident the coal falling upon his leg and badly lracturing it. He was much esteemed by his acquaintances, and Ioave3 a wife and large family to nioura his untimely fate. A child of David Lucas', residing in Conemaugh borough, was seriously burnt last wcekj by his clothes takiDg fire at the cooking stuve. Before the flames could be extinguished, the clothes were almost entirely burned from the child's back, and his face and arms were scorched to a crisp. Hopes are entertained of the little suffer er's recovery. Ephraim Buck, formerly our post master, and a most estimable citizen, died at his residence, on Saturday, after a short illnoss. In the way of improvements, the most worthy of note is the new Catholic church, which was put under roof last week. It promises to be one of the finest church edifices in the county, and will be a credit, to the spirit of religion in this city. At another time I may be able to secure the dimensions, Sec , of the building, when 1 will have a little more to say about it. May Leon. Grammar. At the last session of the Cambria county Teachers' Institute, holden at "Wilmore in September, an essay on- Grammar was read by Mr.- Samuel Singleton, the talented and excellent Principal cf our Union Schools; "Where upon, it was "JZesolvcd, that the thanks of the Institute be tendered Mr. S. for his excellent essay, and also that a copy be requested for publication." In accordance with this resolution, and at our special request, the gentleman has furnished us a copy of the cssa, which wd print on our outside to day. It will be found to be an able pica in behalf of the beautiful science Upon which it treats, and as such will commend itself to the consideration of the enlightened. SWORN In.

Although not disposed to favor or recom mend Patent Medicines in general, through distrust of their ingredients and effects ; I yet know of no sufficient reasons why a man may not testify to the benefits be believes himself to have received from any simple preparation, in the hope that he may thus contribute to the benefit of others. I do . this the more readily in regard to Hoofland'a German Bitters, prepared by Dr. C. M. Jackson, of this city, because I was prejudiced against them for many years, under the impression that they were chiefly an acloholic mixture. I am indebted to my friend Robert Shoemaker., for the removal of this prejudice by proper tests, and for en couragement to try them, when suffering from great and long continued debility. The useof three bottles of these Bitters, at the beginning of the present year, was followed by evident relief, and restoration to a degree of bodily and mental vigor which I had not felt for six months before, and had almost despaired of regaining. I therefore thank God and my friend for directing me to use them. J. NEWTON BROWN. Phiiad'a., Jvsk 23, 1861, -ATTENTION SOLDIERS! .

Jackson Dear Sir : While in Virgin in, owing to the change of water, I was taken with a severe diarrhoea, which'seemed incurable, and which greatly weakened me. When we reached Jfartinsburg, I feared that I should have to come home ; but noticing some of your Bitters in the store of Mr. U. H. Price, in that town, I purchased a supply, find on taking it was speedily restored to health. The diarrhoea was quickly checked, and I experienced no return of it. A number of lay comrades who suffered in the same manner and from the same cause, with whom (shared th BiUers, join me in this certificate, expect to return to the scat cf war vith the legion, and I shall certainly take a supply of the Bitters in my knapsack.
