T]if v.rdfovd (BjUrtte. Local and Personal. 1118 1 F PAT THE PRINTER ! UV have just sent a number of bills ;t rsons indebted to us for job work i advertising. This kind of work ways intended to be cash, but we i Vl . waited for months on some of it :or years on others. tl'f must hare biffs pa id. Had we no debts of r own, we might give U hundred -v' grace to those who owe us. But must pay our debts, and, hence, we . compelled to collect from those are indebted to us. The hooks of F.

But we must bare our boohs ,i,rd up. and a word to the wise is •ufficient. : jW jk I I < i t THE MZTEOKS.—Some of our young . . n >ls have got excited over the Me , - question and thus deliver them . ves: With curiosity, like many of my •hbers, I spent thenightof the 12th I ; morning of the I:3th inst., Watch-; the appearance of the tileteoric .wcr, which astronomers sard would ;,!ace at that time. Patiently the j Jit vigil was kept, sincerely ho- J that we could see the meteors; for j - they fell only once in 33 years we j v anxious to witness them. But j - watching was in vain. Either 1 - was a wrong calculation or they j hindered in their course by the wring Alieghanies, or something ! Jll day of tiie 18th, numbers of y individuals were seen, showing tirhulf-closod eyes, that they, too, ;-penta night in weary star-gazing. 'of iw intending to make up our n-st, retired early to bed, to dream ijit meteors shooting across the .vetis; bat at an early hour, we were .ketiedby the ringing of bells. The i -thought was fire; the second— e are our engines? the third and thought, surely now the showers miing. and kind considerate in i :.iD are calling the good people j iiedi'ord up to witness them. We 1 ~><l those who were willing to lose x that they might awaken us to | -- the grand meteoric shower, ing at our watch the time was a rtcr of three. Hastily dressing, PI tared on the street, looked ea u;> to the quiet sky, but our gaze :no bright meteors with their trail : . We concluded wo were "sold," : wishing to see how good-humored r neighbors would take the sell, oka station on the highway, as Is continued to ring.

One youth who, as he ran, ' wered musically and comically, with xr half full of laughter, "Meteors!" questioner gazed a moment into -ky, then dosed the door with a i, exclaiming as he crawled into L "Sild!" The excitement became - vat that the chief bail iff appeared, ring the groups to disperse, hut ' was one man among so many ex 1-tar-gazers?

()NI: WHO GAZED, RUTGAZED IX VAIN, j V :> ILLUMINATION IX BED*; ■lr. Eli'or : —I suppose you j :: ard of "them stars" which | ">much attraction on the morn tiie 13th and 14th inst. Ai ry hou-e from "Texas" to ' '•□," from the banks of the ; ■ "vthc Southern suburbs of "ye j -ity," were illumined by iiglits '"a-t, notwithstanding the Bur-. ■ ' ( I'incil had made ample pro ■"' 'notify the ]>eop!e in case of the • '"J by appointing a squad of n- to act as an alarm force. | early part of the night the ; " ■ <-re made quite lively by the j ,s promenading gazers, a good- j II Tof which were fair ones. At: k. owing to the inclemency of! 'er, the majority thought prop- i ' for" their respective posts, bich were two eminent astro n-j ' ko took up quarters at j Fitt Street, and from what . "iged of astronomy, were not | "1 ill the "biz," having their full mast, shutters closed and ■p. No doubt tlicy did see stars '-leep. At a mansion on Juli > were to lie found the liead ( f de"Zozndont"and"Bloom .' '"man; also, that of a dentist, i " -bought, a part of the "Engi-1 l all "waiting for the stars I lightsat half-mast. Onßieh j Ft-to fie found a Lieutenant's ' -lights full blast. A few doors si iie "Regulator" were several • 1 a schoolmaster, waiting and watching—lights bright. At the east ern termination of the Borough line was stationed a certain mustached "typo", waiting patiently for the "fall," and, no doubt, picturing in his mind the glowing description he would give in a "local"—lights rm/ dim. At the other extremity of the same square,a "benzine" man with a young mus tache was posted. The old and well established refreshment saloon of B. & MeM., was the general resort for those who had no particular posts, a com fortable fire, large stock of oysters and general accommodations. From this "posish" one could command a fine view of Pitt St. entire. At 3 o'clock all was quiet along the line, nothing to mar the general calm, save an occa sional, "Have they fell yet?" or. "I wish they would soon begin," or "I'm so s-l-e-e-p-v!" &e., coming from the now dozing star-gazers—but, hark ! that e/ortrj proclaims "They Fall!" "They Fall!" A general break Is made by the vigilant watchers through out the town, being aware that the sig nal given was that of the force appoint ed by the Burgess and Council, and which consisted of severial lawyers, (one of whom bad the gong in charge), a proprietor of a Hotel, a dentist and others. They took up their lino of march on Julianna St., proceeding down Pitt, mnkinga general survey of the town, sounding the gong and ring ing the bells. Great was the disap pointment at the above falscalarm, for, he it known, thestrtrs didn't fall. But the re were others than those who were watching, who were disappointed.— For instance, a young lawyer, boarding at the "Washington House," left his couch very hurriedly, appearing on the balcony, minus his accoutrements , and upon realizing t!i of net, made his exit with, "Hum, sold!—wonder where eonsuble is?—somebody ought go for 'im !" Four o'clock found ail quiet, the man of the gong beneath a nine gallon hat, guarding a butcher shop on Pitt St., and thus ended the falling of the meteors in Bedford, in 18(36. "BUB." THE BROAD TOP HAIL ROAD.—The Bedford Inquirer, of last week, makes a rather ugly attack upon the manage ment of the Broad Top Railroad. We don't pretend to say that that road is what it ought to he, but we do think that there is neither sense, nor use, in the sort of complaint made by the In quirer. The "trestles" (which are the only parts of the road of which the lu quirer complains; have all been renew ed within the last two years. True, the old bent* of trestlir.g are left stand ing, the new ones being placed in be tween them, so that these bridges are really just as much stronger than they were originally, as the strength of the old bents amounts to. The heaviest coal trains pass over this road without any injury to the "trestles," and cer tainly passenger trains can be in no danger of breaking through a bridge that sustains the weight of the former. The fact is, that there is a continual re newing of going on, the de cayed timbers being replaced by sound ones, as soon discovered. Nobody likes the looks of bridges such as these. Nobody fancies short curves, especially when cattfe are on the track. But, the history of the Broad Top road shows that fewer accidents, have occurred up on it than upon almost any other road in the State, within the same length of time. The truth is, that careless run- ning has more to do with railroad acci dents than trestles or curves. If the Inquirer will change its base and attack from a different stand-point, perhaps there would be a little more truthful ness in its facts, as well as fairness in its argument. —# PRESRYTERIAX CHURCH.—As an nounced last week, Revs. Mitchell, West and Fitzgerald, preached in the : Presbyterian Church during the latter part of the week, and on Sunday morn ing installed the Rev. A. V. V. Schenek as Pastor. On Sunday afternoon, a Communion Service was held and an appropriate sermon was preached in the evening. The whole series of services j was one of unusual interest, and the sermons were powerful and instructive exhibitions of truth. They will be long remembered by those who had the! pleasure of hearing them. The Sabbath services were attended by large audi ences, and the church has marked it as "a good day." As the result of the i pastoral relations now established a fu ture of unusual prosperity and useful ness is anticipated by the church. STEAM MILL. —The Messrs. Hartley, as our readers are aware, have erected i a very large steam flouring mill in this place. It is complete in all its parts, and shows more progress in our ancient , borough than any enterprise coramenc-, ed here for some time. The sound of the steam whistle reminds one so much of the noise of a railroad locomotive, j that we almost fancy we hear tne rat tle and thunder of the train speeding' its wav toward Bedford. The Mill Is now in operation and is a grand success. 1 NEW COUNTERFEIT.—A new and dangerous counterfeit of the lilty dol lar legal tender notes, has appeared. It ! may be detected by the vignette of General Hamilton, which, on inspec tion, was found to have been split from a two dollar Treasury note and neatly pasted on the counterfeit fifty. The j engraving of the other portions of the j note is cleverly imitated, and can only be distinguished from the genuine by j the closest inspection. THANKSGIVING.— In accordance with i the proclamation of the Presidentof the j United States, Union Services will be i held in tlje Presbyterian Church, on the , 20th inst., at II o'clock, A. M. Sermon , by Rev. !L Heckerman. Subject:— j The Christian's Duty in Civil or Na-i tional Life. THANKSGIVING proclamations are now irreverently, but more euphon iously, designated as "turkey talk." I.iME.—We notice as an item of lo cal interest, that some of our neighbors are beginning to turn their attention to this great fertiliser. Farms will wear out. The little manure made in the barn-yards will not supply what the cultivation of fields will exhaust. The land must get thin, and farming, as a consequence, will not pay. The far mers of Lancaster, Franklin and other counties, where iime can be had, un derstand this, and it is no uncommon thing for them to haul lime a distance of ill teen nines and pay a good price for it at the kiln.' It pays at the end of seven years better than at tirst. As a matter of dollars and cents, besides the satisfaction of reaping when you sow, we would urge every farmer on lime-stone, slate or gravel land—even on the sides of the sandy mountains, to lime his land. Apropos of this, we understand that our townsman, (). E. Shannon, has a regular draw-kiln now in operation, and that the demand for lime is on the increase. REDUCTION IX PRlCES.—During the past week the price of flour has fallen about $1 o( per barrel, and other pro visions will probably fall in proportion. Unless something unusual should oc cur, there will most likely be a sti'l fur ther decline in the price of flour and grain. The provision speculators in our large cities appear to have slightly overreached themselves. Large car goes of wheat, bacon, flour, &c., which had been sent to Europe, are reported to have been sent back to this country for a better market, and the specula tors, who had hoarded up a large stock in the hope of making fortunes this winter, suddenly found the market o verstoeked. LONG EVEN I XGS. —Let every onedur ing the long evenings of winter, labor to improve himself; and parents should not neglect their children. One of the best things a parent can put into the hands of a child that can read, is a good newspaper. There are hundreds of Democrats yet in this county who do not take a home paper. They always regret our defeats at the elections, but are slow to contribute in the right di rection for the promotion of Democracy. There is not a democratic family in the county but which ought to take a home paper. Its influence may not at once be seen, but it will sooner or later be felt. Will our democratic friends prop erly look at this matter? It is by the slow process of gradual education that permanent public opinion is formed. PROPER VEX riLATiox. —The perni cious practice of retiring to bed in chambers containing stoves, with the windows closed tightly, and all other channels of ventilation shut up, should be discarded at once. If the door of a bedchamber is not provided with a transom, the upper sash of the window should in all cases be lowered several inches, in order to admit a proper quan tity of pure breathing air. Deaths are very frequently caused by improper ventilation. We read, no longer ago than yesterday, of the death of a young lady, caused by breathing the poisonous gases from a coal oil lamp, which she allowed to remain burning in her room over night. A USEFUL IXVENTION.—Our ingen ious friend, D. A. T. Black, Esq., has invented, and obtained a patent for, an im pro veil sled, which is provided with wheels on the inside of the "run ners," which are let down, the sled be ing at the same time elevated, by ma chinery managed by the driver. These wheels are intended to run the the sled over the bare ground, and we think will answer the purpose admirably. The whole arrangement is very simple and easily worked. A good thing can be made out ofthepurchaseof rights. VISITORS. —Among the distinguish ed strangers present at our late session of Court, we noticed Hon. F. M. Kiai med and Hon. J. McDowell Sharpe, of Chainbcrsburg,Geo. A. Smith, Esq., of McConnellsburg, and C0!..1. I>. Bod ily, of Somerset, all in good health, and capital Democrats in the bargain. MIST RKDKKM. —A misapprehension has been entertained by some of the na tional banks that they are not obliged to redeem mutilated notes except at discount. Holders of such notes should in no ease allow this discount. The lisinks are bound to redeem the notes at par, both at their own counters and at their redeemingagencies. THURSDAY, the 20th inst., is the day set apart by the President for Thanks giving and Prayer. The turkey tribe are in high state of consternation in consequence, and threaten to take part with the Radicals in impeaching the President unless he withdraws bis of fensive Proclamation. Bk a r K 11. 1 J k i.— Tobias Snyder, Thomas Steel and Jacob E. Ilitchey killa bear, a few days ago, on Tus sey's mountain, about five miles north of Bedford Forge, which weighed 310 lbs., and measured four inches across the back. Mr. Snyder's shot killed him. Pretty good for our mountains. Religiols.—Rerv. A. li. Miller will deliver, in the M. E. Church, in this place, on next Sabbath, at 101 o'clock, a. m., bis second sermon on the "Cen tenary of Methodism.'' Subject: —The- Rise and Progress of Methodism in America. Renov ation ofthe Court I locs e. —The Commissioners have refitted and repainted the Court House, and it is now both comely and comfortable. The Commissioners deserve the thanks of the public for their attention to the comfort of those attending Court. Sworn In.—David Howsare, Esq., has been sworn in as Commissioner, He will make an efficient officer. Geo. Roads, Esq., is the retiring member of the board. Good luck attend him. FOR a beautiful head of hair, use U-Exesis. Sold at Lewis' Drug Store. THE newspapers in various parts of our country are noting an immense in crease i n marriages since the close of the war, showing that nature is extending her recuperative power to make up for the ravages of the battle field and the hospital. Statistics state an increase of V> per cent, in 'OO over 1860. THE cabbage crop, always cared for by our German farmers, and of late years grown into importance every where, is pronounced this season to be most abundant and ofthe fine>t quality. The many lovers ofsourkraut will be glad to learn this fact. LAST week a number of counterfeit one dollar greenbacks were passed at different places. The bills are new and likely to deceive poor judges. Be ye also careful, and examine your one dol lar hills. FEM ALE clerks are now employed in the Dead Letter office at Washington. What a paradise of enjoyment for curi ous woirnfn! We know of a few that such situations would just suit. A NEW bonnet, asserted to IK* the la test and loveliest, has made its appear ance. It look* very much like a clam shell topped off with an acorn. They are very pretty—what there is of them. THESE autumnal days are becoming most provokingly shortened at both ends. They keep a man moving about briskly to accomplish much bet ween sunri-e and sundown. AN editor in lowa has become so hol low from depending upon the printing business alone for bread, that he pro pose- to sell himself for a stove pipe at three cents a foot. K SSI X ESS DIRECTORY.
