flic "iufifctd (I'.a-cfir. Local and Personal. t |' I I PAY THE PRINTER ! We have just sent a number of bills to persons indebted to us for job work and advertising. This kind of work is always intended to be vault, but we have waited for months on some of it and for years on others. IIV taunt have these bill* paid. Had we no debts of our own, we might give a hundred vears' grace to those who owe us. But we must pay our debts, and, hence, we are compelled to collect from those who arc indebted to us. The books of B. F. Meyers are also unsettled and must lie closed up. We ar<- driven to sending hills to all, irrespective of per sons. and we hope that we will not he compelled to resort to any thing more stringent. But we must have our lx>oks squired up, and a word to the wise is sufficient. *• i i i i i Co URT PROCEEDINGS.—QUARTER SESSIONS.— The following cases wore disposed of at the last Court of Quar ter Sessions for this county: Com. vs. A.J.

BLACK'S PATENT SLED.— We spoke, last week, of a - JCHI invented by I). A.T. Black, Esq., which runs on wheels, or runners, at the pleasure of the driver, but did not fully note its advantages over the ordinary sled. It can be run, like a wagon, over bridges, bare ground and streams of water; and Mr. Black's improvement will prevent pushing the horses going down steep hills, and slid ing to one side on icy places, it saves a great deal of horse labor and prevents the soles of the sled from wearing out. The improvement is equally applicable to sleighs. For further particulars, ad dress I). A. T. Black, Ray's Hill, Bed ford co., Pa. WARNING. —We would again warn careless people of the danger attending ;t careless handling of Kerosene lamps. Our exchanges art; filled with accounts "f accidents from this cause by which R'nmcu,children and servants lose their lives. A lamp upset, and the whole mass of oil instantly ignites, running over everything, and setting lire to the elothing of women and children who may lie near. People cannot be too careful in handling coal oil. Lamps Occasionally explode, when the oil is permitted to burn low, and such acci dent.- frequently terminate in death. MARRIAGE AND DEATH.— Why is it that thi' marriage announcements tire immediately followed by the obituary in ..ur papers? Does death fol low OOCiosdyoa the footstopoof mar riage'.' I-grief the page that carries ■ " train ot happiness ? Does the tomb "{'en wide its dark and ponderous jaws hf-ide the nuptial couch ? 'Tis the " ,r Hie gleeful songs of light a 'id merry hearts to-day, to-morrow A 1 turn to funeral chants, and sorrow ' ' ''"Dentation be beard instead of -lad. pealing laughter. We read to day oi our friends' marriage, and wish joy; to-morrow we set; their •th- recorded, and say "peace to their o lir merriest songs art; timed ''in:falls of death, and the "silver ! ml b as fragile as a spider's thread, "•''l the "golden bowl" is more brittle tniltl L'hlvs, S i.mors ACCIDENT.—We regret to : 'i that James Madura, Esq., mana ■s( r "f Bloomfield Furnace, was thrown 'I his horse, a few days since, and notisly injured. We have not been 'imtti a- to the particulars of the accident. -\>-I>TANT ASSESSORS.—We learn •""n the Bedford Inquirer that Capt. " "i I.Helm, ofthisplace, John Shuss, ''f bnake Spring, and John B. Fluke, "pcwell tp., have been appointed ■ distant Assessors of internal He venue f °f this County. DON'T FRIGHTEN YOUR CHILDREN. , —We know that it is a habit with many j parents to frighten their children into J obedience, by threats of imprisonment j in dark rooms, or by picturing some j great bugaboo that is ready to carry them off. Little do those who resort j to this mode of reasoning (?) with in nocent little ones, think of the fearful consequences that may result from such acts. A few days since a bright little lad in Kvansville, Indiana, when play ing on the steps, was threatened to lie shirt up in a dark room if he did not go in and stay in the house. The child, frightened, ran in and fell in parox ysms on the floor, lie begged hi* mo ther not to let the man shut him up, and he would never go on the steps again. He sickened from this fright and never recovered. When conscious he begged bis mother to keep the man away and he never would go on the steps again. And when the little fel low was dying he said, "l'apa, don't let me die, 1 never will go on the steps again." We hope this instance may serve as a warning to parents who read the GAZETTE, to be careful how they attempt to frighten their little ones. SAD ACCIDENT.—We learn from the McConnellsburg papers, that a melan choly accident occurred near that place, a few days ago, which resulted in the dentil ol Miss Laura Ilassler, daughter of Maj. John Ilassler, Treasurer of Franklin county, and the serious inju ry of Mrs. Baker, who in company with Miss Ilassler and a young lad were dri ving in a buggy, from Fort Littleton to McConnellsburg. On thesummitof Scrub Ridge, the boy alighted from the buggy, when the horse became fright ened and ran away, dashing the vehicle to pieces against the rocks on the side of the road, both ladies being violently thrown upon the ground, Miss Ilassler receiving injuries which caused her death a few days afterwards. Mrs. Ba ker was greatly bruised, but was not fatally injured. BUILD HOUSES.—Our town needs now, more than anything else, an in crease of dwelling houses for the peo ple. Many are crowded, two or three families into a house where there should be but one, ahd rents are only limited by the demand of the landlord. We want small houses that our mechanics and laborers can purchase, and thus put their earnings and savings into a per manent form. If the funds invested in oil speculations had hden invested in houses, they could all have been sold at a handsome profit, and the amount re-invested in like manner with a sim ilar result. We call upon our business men to unite and build houses—for each to build one, two or three, as they can spare the means from their busi ness. A MERITED COMPLIMENT.— We were shown, to-day, a magnificent anil costly regalia, of the Order of Odd- Fellows, which was, last week, presen ted by Bedford Lodge No. 202, to Dr. C. N. Ilickok, the District Deputy Grand Master of Bedford County. This is but a Just tribute to the Doctor's faithful, and long continued efforts in the cause of Odd-Fellowship. As an advocate of the peculiar principles of the society, the Doctor has few equals, and his numerous public addresses, in this regard, has given him a widely extended reputation. We are glad to record this instance of the appreciation, bv his brethren of his services. SWORN IN. —Robert Steckman, Esq., the newly elected Sheriff, has been sworn in and is now engaged in dis charging the duties of his office. Bob will make an efficient officer. The re tiring Sheriff, ('apt. Airistadt, goes out of office, with the respect of all who had official transactions with him, and we can say for him, that he was a thorough going and trusty officer. Michael Diehl has been installed as Poor Direc tor. An honest man is "old Mike," and t he public can rest assured that he will be true to their interests. COUNTY PAPERS.— Postmasters should bear in mind, for their advantage as well as that of the local press, that for every county paper delivered by them to subscribers they are entitled to retain of the post office funds ten and one-half cents per year. It is for their interest, as well as for that of the publisher, that the county papers be preferred, since there is no troubiem making collections or keeping accounts thereof, as on pa pers printed out of the county, the commission on which will not average more than from sixtoeight eentsa year. COMPLETION OF THE SAND PATCH TUNNEL.— We learn that the Sand Patch Tunnel, 011 the Pittsburg and Connellsville Railroad, has at last been cut through. It is located in Larimer township, Somerset county. It is 4,- 700 feet in length, is 22 feet wideand 19 feet high. The length of the tunnel on the Peim'a Central, between Cresson and Altoona, is 3,70U feet, just 1,000 less than the length of the Sand Patch. COCNTKRFKIT Coix.—A counterfeit five cent coin of the new nickle issue, is in circulation, nn<l is calculated to de ceive the unwary. The counterfeit is remarkably good so far as the die is concerned, but the metal has that grea sy appearance common to compounds of pewter and other baser metal ie sub stances. It is very soft and cuts easily like cheese. — Buff. Sun. IMPROVEMENTS.—' The Commission ers have re-fitted and rc-furnishod the Court House. It is now one of the most comfortable, as well as one of the neat est, Court Houses in the state. I'KKsKRVrNO Mn.K.-All easy way of preserving milk or cream sweet for a long time, or of removing the sour ness when it has already come on, is to add to it a small quantity of common soda, pearl ash or magnesia. So it is said. __j£ WE call attention to the advertise ment of C. F. Miller & Co., under head of "new advertisements. ALL IN VAIN.—The attempts to palm off upon the American publie the bogus parodies on the leading Paris perfumes, while Phalon's "Night Blooming Cereus," the finest extract for the handkerchief ever produced ei ther here or abroad, is within the reach of every class. Sold everywhere. Lx I.MPT.—Dress-makers and millin ers will be very glad to know hat from the first day of August, 1866, they are exempt from all taxation, whatsoever. Thenew law says: "All articles of dress made or trimmed by milliners or dress makers for the wear of women and children, shall also he exempt." CONVENTION OF SCHOOL SUPERIN TENDENTS.—A Convention of County Superintendents of Common Schools o! the State, will ce held at Ilarrisburg on the sth of December next. It will remain in session three days. DEER KILLED.— A fine large BUCK was killed in Jack's corner, a few days ago, by Richard Sullivan, of Hopewell township. PLENTY—WiId Turkies. Quite a number have been brought to this place within the last two weeks, by our sportsmen. SEE advertisement of "Snow Pow der," in another column. BUSINESS DIRECTORY.

This is an article for washing with out rubbing, except in very dirty places, which will require a very slight rub, and unlike other preparations offered for a like purpose, WILL SOT ROT the clothes, but will leave them much W HITER than ordinary methods, without the usual wear and tear I: removes grease spots as if by magic, and sof tens the dirt by soaking, so that rinsing will inor dinary cases entirely remove it. This powder is prepared in accordance with j chemical science, and upon a process peculiar to i itself, which is secured by Letters Patent. It has i been in use for more thau a year, and has proved i itself an universal faturite wherever it has been used. Among the advantages claimed are the fol lowing, viz : It saves all the expense of soap usually used on cotton nnd linen goods. It saves most of the labor of rubbing, and wear and tear. Also, for cleaning windows it is unsurpassed.— With one quarter the time and labor usually re quired it imparts a beautiful gloss and lustre, much superior to any other mode. No water re i quired except to moisten the powder Directions with each package. And can Ue readily appreciated by a single trial. The cost of washing for a family of five or six persons will not exceed THREE CENTS. The manufacturers of this powder are aware that many useless compounds have been iutrodu ced to the public which have rotted the cloth, or failed in removing the dirt, but knowing the in trinsic excellence of this article, they confidently proclaim it as being adapted to meet a demand which has long existed, and which has heretofore remained unsupplied.

J W LINHEN FELTER, nov.Ghvt Adm'r of J. W. Beeler. dee d RE A s OX s WH Y THE AMERICAN WATCH. MADE AT WALTIIAM, MASS., IS THE BENT It is made on the best principle. It is composed of SOLID PLATES. No jar can inlerfere with the harmony of its working, and no sudden shock can damage its machinery. Every piece is made and finished by machinery, (itself famous for its novelty, as well as for its effectiveness, and is therefore properly made. The watch is vkat all mechnnisin should be—ACCURATE, SIMPLE, STRONG ANN ECO NOMICAL. Except some high grades, too costly for general use, foreign watches ate chiefly made by women and hoys. Such watches are composed of several hundred pieces, screwd and r.iveted to gether. and require constant repairs to keep them in aity kind of order. All pepons who have car ried ' ancres, •Gepines," and English Patent Levers." are perfectly well a Wire of the truth of this statement. At the beginning of our enterprise, more than ten years ago, it was our first object to make a thoroughly good low-priced watch for the million, 1 to take the place of those foreign impositions, the refuse ot foreign factories, which were entirely un saleable at home and perfectly worthless every where. How well we have accomplished this may be understood from the fact 'hat after so many years of public trial we now make MORE THAN HALF OF ALL THE WATCHES SOLI) IN THE FNITED STATES, and that no others have ever given such universal satisfaction. While this department of ou." busi ness is continued with increased ffcilities for per- [ feet work, we are at present engaged in the man ufacture at watches of the very IIGHEST GRADE KNOWN TO I HHONOMETRY, unequal-d by anything hitherto made by ourselves, aud unsurpassed by anything made in the world. Fir this purpose we have the amplest facilities We have erected 1 an addition to our main building expressly for ! this branch of our business, aud hive filled it with the best workmen in our service. New machines and appliances have been constructed, which per form their work with consummati delicacy aud j exactness. The choicest and molt approved ma ; terials only are used, and we challenge comparison ; between this grade of our work and the finest im- : ported chronometers. We do not pretend to sell our watches for LESS MONEY than foreign watches but we do assert, without fear of contradiction, that for the SAME MOSEY our product is inoompa bly superior All our watches, of vbatcvergrade, are fully warranted, and this warrantee is good at all times against us or our agents in all parts of ; the world CAUTION.—The public are cautioned to buy only ' of respectable dealers. All persons selling coun terfeits will be prosecuted. ROBBINS 4 APPLETON Agents for the American Watch Company, nov39w 1 182 Broadway, N.Y.

The success of THE OLD GUARD has been as remarkable as it ought to be gratifying to the friends of a true American literature.

It will be continued up on the grand idea that "all is not lost," while vir tue and intelligence remain with any portion of the people. TERMS, CASH IX ADVAXCE.
