Wo. clip the following paragraph from the A1-, toona Tribune, and direct the especial attention of our business men thereto.:. A few days since,' one of our business men, in speaking ot the benefits of adver tising, informed us that a circular, an nouncing his business and location, which he recently had distributed, had brought him one customer, whose patronage, since that date, had amounted to over $20. He knew the circular had secured the cus tomer, for sho so slated ' to bim. The profit realized on the sale of $20 worth of goods paid for the circulars and left him a surplus.. Other customers, of whose purchases he kept no account, were secu red, as they stated, in the same way ; and doubtless many more were attracted to his store by the same means. We refer to this merely to show that advertising pays. Some business men think that ad vertising does not pay, because their cus tomers do not inform them that they read their circulars or advertisements, and were thereby induced to call. No man ever advertised judiciously , without being handsomely rewarded. Did it pay in the above case? . Certainly; and it will al ways pay, although the person advertising may not know exactly how, or when. Normal Schools. The Superinten dent of Common .Schools of Cambria county, in the lasi number of the Teach ers Advocate, gives notice that Normal Schools will be opened in various parts of the county on the 17th June next pro vided this time will suit a majority of the teacheri desiring to attend. The location of the schools will be .fixed by the Super intendent so as to conduce to the conve nience of the greatest number of teachers. The tuition, in schools ot twenty-five pu pils and upward, will be $2 per month. In schools of a smaller number, the com pensation of the teacher will be $50 per month, the sum to be raided by assessing an equal amount upon each pupil. Tui tion to be paid monthly. For full par ticulars, addres? the Co. Superintendent at Johnstown. To A Correspondent. "Tyro:" By reference to Webster's Unabridged Dic tionary, you will find the meaning of the French term "on die", to be as follows "They say, or it is said; hence, a flying rumor." It therefore follows that the construction of the following sentence is entirely correct-r-"It is a late on dit (fly ing rumor) that Jeff. Davis will be tried in May." Tho assurance you received to the contrary from one whose sole knowl edge of French consists of an acquaintance with the fact that "Rupert" in that lan guage means "Robert" in ours, is like a great many other assurances emanating from the same source erroneous. Died In Strongstown, Indiana county, on Tuesday morning, 16th instant, of consumption, Andrew Jackson Litzinger, aged about 19 years. The deceased was the youngest sou of Charles Litzinger, Sr., deceased. At Latrobe, Westmoreland county, on the 6th instant, Kate M., daughter of James Fenlon and wife of Joseph A.

We direct attention to the advertisement of Mr. Jas. B. Young, Ebcnsburg, offering a tract of timber land in Cambria township, a steam circular saw-mill, &o., &c, for sale. See card of Dr. D. W. Zeigler, dentist. He comes among us well recommended for proficiency in his profession. Booms above R. JL Thomas' store. Rejected. The high prices, which have been prevalent since the opening of the war, have been rejected, and old-time prices have been adopted in their ftead, at J. M. Thompson's cheap cash store.

OPBS THK'-CAMPA.IGH WITH A GBSAY OAHI SOMS IDA -AFfOB-DS OF HOW kt "WAS - FLAW FISB WBATHXK, C. Hemlock, April 1&, 1867. To the Editor cf The Alleghanian : Mr. James Hsgan, a coal miner in one of Messrs. E. E. Evans & Coa mines, met with a serious accident on Thursday. He was undermining a "pillar," and while shoveling the under coal, the top gave way and caught him in the fall. He was badly bruised, hut fortunately no bones were broken. No fears are entertained aa to his recovery. The Highland B. B. C. had a meeting and .quite a spirited game of ball on Saturday. I have not been able to get the score of the game, but have the fol lowing report from a looker-on : A. and B., Captains, with A.'s cine to the bat. First inning. Batsman No. 1 made a nice stroke to field, and . reached first base on all fours. No. 2, a beautiful stroke to' right field; in a prodigious ef fort to make a. home run, this player sprained his ancle, and was put out on third base. Carried off the field on a rail. No. 3, an old stager but out of practice,' made a handsome foul, and went out.- No. 4 struck out. Capt. A. scored one on this. inning, batsman No. 1 having succeeded in getting home. ; Ba nine to the bat. No. 1, a heavy batter, reached first base. No. 2 forced No. 1, and both played out on bases. 1$o. 3 made a weighty stroke and a home run; coming in at home base on a back-slide. No. 4, on tho strength-of a long stroke, made the second base after the style -:of No. 3's home run. .The second baseman doubted the honesty of this kind of play, and appealed to the umpire. The empire decided it was. "all right." No. 4 so much delighted with the decision that he neglected his business and was played out on third base. Bs score, one the home run. I omit particulars of ensuing innings. Capt. A. lost a man or two on each in ning, till the fifth, when, liaving nobody left but himself and short stop, he stopped short. Capt. B. was presented with one black eye, his catcher got ;a sprained wrist, bis pitcher a bloody nose, and the rest of his men were more or less, but es pecially'morej crippled. Notwithstanding these little drawbacks, the.p.lay in the niain was good for begin ners; and toshow that the H. B. B. C. is in earnest and not to be deterred by trifles, the members have resolved to con tinue the exercises by playing a second game on next Saturday afternoon, at 2 o'clock. Weather pleasant, and everybody en gaged, in making garden. . O. A Sarity. It is not often that the people of this vicinity are greeted with such a display of spring -goods as is now being made at V.
