Ilydes new advertise ment in this issue. He keeps constant ly on hand a lane assortment of any. thing that man or woman may want. 1 Give him a call. HSyltwill be sccu by reference to our advertising columns, that Weis Brothers, of St. Mary's have just receiv ed a splendid assortment of everything useful. No one who has half an eye will fail to see their advertisement. ffcBy reference to our advertising columns it will be seen that Mr M'Bride, of St Mary's, advertises his stock in the Advocate; We would advise all wan ting anything in his line to give him a call. S&'J. S. Hyde advertises that he has some valuable lots for sale in the immediate vicinity of the railroad de pot. It strikes us that this would be a safe and profitable investing ut to per. sous desirous of getting rich. , 0"Bordwell & Messenger's Drug Store, is certainly an institution which should be patronized. The reader will see their advertisement, aud conclude that they must be doii; a good business, else how could they afford to advertise so extensively. BThc banking house of Culver, Pcun & Co .New York, has failed. They were largely interested in the oil regions, and thoir suspension will virtually cause a panic in that country. It is already rumored that several of the banks in Crawford and Venango couultes have iailed. B,Mr. J. K. Whitmore advertises Lis agency of Wheeler & Wilson's Sew. ing Machines. They have an established reputation and are the most popular family machines extant. To those desir ing to purchase, Mr. hitmore offers the inducement of furnishing them at New York and Philadelphia prices, thus saving to the purchaser the cost aud risks of transportation. 8Mrs. E. O. Clements has just started a new store, in the room former, ly occupied as a Railroad store ; and like a sensiblo person, advertises her stock in the Advocate. We call the attention of our lady readers, to one feat, ure connected with her store that will be hailed with delight by them. It is the millinery and uiantua making depart ment. This is under the charge of a lady every way competent to give entire satisfaction to customers. Fire. Tho Portland Mills wero en tirely consumed by fire on Sunday even, ing 25th inst. It appear that a fire had been built under the boilers for the purpose of thawing them out, so as to be iu order to run the mill the next day. By some means the fire was communica ted to tho wooden structure ot the mill, 1 and when discovered, the progress of the I accordina; to their mode of thinking, it I will pay. It will enhance the price of j property, and increase the population , and tho business of the place. The j erection of every good building tends to 1 advance the value of property. For instance, such a building as the resi j donee of Albert Willis. Esq., in a small ! place like Ridgway, virtually adds to the ! value of every other house in the town. ! How much more is this the case, where ! to the architectural beauties of the j building are added what is far more im. j portant the elevating influences of the church. Ridgway is unrival'ed tor the purity of its atmosphere and its water. Situated in the midst of the Alleghenies, we breathe the invigorating air of the i mountains, while almost every house iu town is supplied with water from run ' ninii fmntains. With these natural ad vantages in our fivor and the rapidly increasing development and population ot tho coal regions of the county, and the influx of wealth invited hither by the richness of our material resources, j what is there to prevent Ridtrway from becoming the social and business centre of the county. Alas, that truth com pels us to confess it, there has been. there is, but one cau e, we have no church. What man who loved his fani'ly would dare, what mother would ' consent, to move to a town, abounding with all tho snares that entrap the feet of youth, without the moral influences that counteract them. Again, give us a church and there is no reason, why Ridirway, for which Nature has done so , much, should not be a favorite summer ' resort, for the wealthier denizens of tho cities, who yearly leave the sultry con. fines of brick walls, and seek new life j and vigor in the recreations aud cooler ' climate of the mountains. Our woods j abound with game. Our streams are full of trout. We arc upon the line of: the Philadelphia & Erie Railroad. But j men will go where they can take their families, and we have no church. This i the reproach upon our fa'rninne which deprives ns of this source of pleasureand prufit. But these considerations impor tant as they are, sink into insignificance in comparison with the moral benefits to be derived from a church well sustained and well attended. Wo feel confident that if wo have a proper place for reli- gious service, it would be well suppor ted. Upon the risinsr generation the good influences of the change from a sabbath-breaking to a church going peo ple, could not but be salutary. We hope our people will view this matter favorably. We are informed that con siderable aid has been promised from abroad, when we shall take the initiative. We are glad to hear it. and it is but proper that we should do something ourselves before we ask other s tor assistance. We understand that the site selected for the church is upon the corner lot of Jlr.
