Local and Personal. JOHN W. BOWEN Esq., is a regular ly authorized agent for this paper, and will visit our friends throughout the county, for the purpose of making col lections and taking subsections. We hope that his calls will be responded to in the proper spirit. We have some st>,ooo on our books, SI,OOO of which we need very badly to pay a debt we owe in bank. In fact we must collect, and if mild measures will not answer our purpose, we will be compelled to resort to harsher ones. There are many per sons who pay promptly. To such, thanks ! There "are more who do not. To such, duns, and finally writs. We j desire to oppress no man. We are wil ling liberal to those who are in straitened circumstances. But if me do not heed our request to settle, if they treat our call for payment with con tempt, they have no further claim upon our generosity. \\ e have given away enough in our business to keep a small family five yerfrs. If we are to contin ue that sort of work, we want those who can pay to come forward and do it, and those who can't, to step upland settle. Of course, we don't refer to those who do pay. If this be not at tended to .wow, we will see whether "some things can't be done as well as others." • COURT PROCEEDINGS. -The follow ing cases in the Quarter Sessions were tried last week: Coin. vs. M.

The wo- j man's name is Catharine Weaver, wife of James Weaver, of the above named | county. The pair found lodgings some- ! where in the city, and were living j quietly and happily together, when j yesterday their quiet was broken in upon by the arrival of the husband, who proceeded to tlie ollice of Alderman Morrow, and made an information a- j gainst Jones lbr adultery, alleging that; he had a wife of his own, whom he had I deserted. He also stated thai Mrs. W. had left not on'v a broken-hearted bus-; band but two helpless little children. A warrant was issued, and Jones was found working on the Pennsylvania j Railroad, a short distance beyond the depot. He was committed to jail for a hearing. No search was made for Mrs. Weaver, and of course she did not , put in an appearance,at which the hus- 1 band seemed greatly disappointed, as j he says his object in visiting the city % was not to punish Jones, but to reclaim his faithless wife. INSURANCE. —We are requested to • announce that Maj. J. F. Frueauff, of Holidaysburg, Blair county, is Gener al Agent for the State of Pennsylvania • for the WORLD MUTUAL LIFE INSU- I RANCH COMIANY OF N. V., to whom ; applications for insurance, further in- j formation anfl to obtain Local Agencies, should be addressed. The special features of this company are as follows: Mutual premiums lower than those of a majority of the Life Insurance companies in the United States. Non participating premiums lower than those charged by any company in the world. Dividends increase annually! after two years, with the age of the policy. Losses paid in thirty days af ter due notice and proof of death. Thir ty days' grace allowed in the payment of premiums. * t- ' SPECIAL COURT.-— Judge Taylor, of Huntingdon, is at present holding a j special court in this place. The Judge j gives very good satisfaction to our bar. j TEMPERANCE LECTURE.— We had not intended to make any notice what ever of the performances of a man by the name of Uniac, in the Court House, on Saturday night last and in the M. E. Church, on the following Sabbath evening. But a member of the order of Good Templars, one of the best cit izens of our town, has handed us the following and we have concluded to publish it. We desire it to be distinct ly understood that we are just as anx ious as any man can be to see drunk ards reclaimed and intemperance check ed. but harangues like those ol Mr. Uniac are calculated rather to retard than advance the good work. \\ e ad mit that Uniac is a good declaitner and quotes Byron oxceWentiy, but his mat ter is the merest jum le of crudities possible to be uttered. The article by our Good Templar friend isu> follows: — If the Good Templars have no other than a Boston clown to uphold their cause, it would l>e much better to have him go around with a menagerie or circus in the summer, and remain at home during winter to practice tumb ling and rope-dancing. And if pul pits cannot afford any better preachers, it would he well enough for some rough carpenters to erect stages inside ol the churches so that we might have some of Paul l>e Kock's moral scenes dram atized and acted. It is much to be re gretted that the cause of temperance should be damaged by such lecturers as Mr. Uniac. 1 advise those whose taste selects men of this kind as the champi ons of temperance, to mix the perform ance, next time, with a little common sense, and ask them in the name of ev erything not hypocritical, to keep all such monkeys otit of the pulpit. A GOOD TEMPLAR. LOCALIZING.— AImost everybody has an idea of his own how a local newspa per should be conducted, but however much they differ on other items, they almost invariably coincide in the one opinion that a newspaper should be mostly made up of local items. They do not seem to think that a local editor is not omnipresent; nor that the pro prietor cannot afford to keep a "local" on every street corner; nor that either of them cannot he poking his nose in to other people's business all the time; a-king questions for which he feels he should be rebuked. To effect the grand result desired by everybody in a local paper, each member of the communi ty should be under obligation to con tribute his mite of news, with the un derstanding that every other member do the same. Thus an editor would be merely a scribe and the printer the multiplier of the records made. LECTURE BY REV. S. KEPLER.— The lecture on "The Power and Grandeur of Moral Principle as exemplified in the Statesmanship of Moses," delivered by Rev. S. Kepler, in the Court House, on Tuesday night last, was enjoyed by a large and appreciative audience. Rev. Kepler is one of the soundest thinkers of the age and never fails to impress his hearers with the beauty of his dic tion as well as the forcibleness of hfs argument. DROWNED.— We are pained to learn that Harry Tipper, of Hopewell, was drowned on Monday last. Tipper and same others were engaged in erecting a rope ferry across the Juniata at Hope well, when the unfortunateyoung man fell out of the boat in which he was at work. He leaves a wife and one child to lament his loss. WE have much pleasure in recom mending the Catalogue of Newspapers and Periodicals issued by the firm of Blackwell & Co., of 82 Cedar St., New York. It will be found a most useful publication and we advise our readers to write to them for a copy which may be obtained gratis. BRIDGE SWEPT AWAY.— The bridge at Hopewell, was swept away almost entirely by the breaking up of the ice in the Juniata, on Friday last. The loss to the county will be at least $2,- 500. NEW GROCERIES.— Irvine and Stat ler have just received, at the Regula tor, a large lot of groceries, embracing the finest Sugars, Coffees, Teas, Syrups, Ac., which they will sell very low. Coffee at 811 cents per pound. Nfew Pner MASTER..— -it, A. Hun ter, Esq., has been appointed Post Maater, at Riddlesburg, this county.

A messuage, being the mansion houss and trRCt ofland situate iu the township of Liberty, in the county of Bedford, containing one hundred and eighty-two acres, more or less, well improved and well watered, adjoining lands of Surnuel Harvey, Geo F. Steel ana others, and having thereon erec ted a SAW MILL with CHOPPING MILL at tached, the saw-mill containing circular, lath and upright saws, and eituateupon a good stream of water; there are also a turning-lathe and cider mill attached to the saw-mill. There area tenant house, dry house and other outbuildings upon the premises. 150 acres are cleared and under fence, part of the farm being limestone soil.

Upon these two last tracts there is an almost unlimited quantity of excellent timber. The whole is well water jd. The above described real estate is pleasantly sit uated in a fine agricultural district, at the very head of railroad market, where all produce raised can bo sold at the highest prices; and as the saw mill is one of the finest in the county, and there is a large quantity of valuable yellow pine and oak on the same, and the transportation to railroad is quite convenient, it is considered a valuable poiut for the manufacturing of lumber; besides there is an immense quantity of rock oak bark on the premises. It is believed that the lumber and bark capacity of the premises, alone, is worth all the money the property will sell for. The partic ular atteution of tanners and lumbermen is invi ted ; as the water-power is of great strength, the mill site is very valuable, and quite a profi table chopping business can now be done in addi tion to the manufacturing of lumber.
