We are pleased to be able to state, that Dr. Lowman of Johnstown, who was dangerously injured a fwe weeks ago by being thrown from a sleigh in consequence of his horse having "run off," is rapidly recovering and will soon be himself again.

We announce with regret the death of JAMES M'DERMIT, Esq., who was well and favorably known to a large majority of the citizens of this county. He died at his residence in this place last Thursday evening. Aged -- years. [age not listed, only --]

Mr. M'Dermitt, during his lifetime filled a number of public positions, in all of which he rendered universal satisfaction. He was one of the Board of County Commissioners from, we think, the year 1840, until the year 1842. He was Commissioners Clerk, and an acting Justice of the Peace in this Borough for a number of years. Last year he was Steward of the County Poor House. During the year 1843 he was Editor of the Mountaineer, then the only Democratic paper published in this county. He was a sincere Christian, a good citizen, a kind and affectionate husband and parent and an honest man. Through life he acted well his part. After all, as has been truly said "when life's mockeries shall vanish from before us, and the heart that now beats in the proudest bosom, shall moulder unconscious beneath its kindred clay, art cannot erect a nobler monument or genius compose a purer pauegyrie." May he rest in peace.

As the reward of her virtues, she was permitted to live many years beyond those usually allotted to mortal beings in this world. She was a sincere Christian and an affectionate mother and though dead, the
"Memory of her virtues yet,
Lingers like twilight's hues when the bright sun is set."

We return our thanks to our esteemed friend, Mr. James Luther, for furnishing us with the particulars of the destruction of Mr. Wible's barn by fire. Will our friends in the county imitate his example, and send us an account of any circumstances that may occur in the neighborhood in which they reside worthy of notice. Favors of this kind will be gratefully remembered by us.

The Barn of Mr. Peter Wible in Carroll township, was destroyed by fire on last Friday evening. The fire originated we understand in a smoke house adjoining the Barn. Mr. Wible has sustained a heavy loss. The Barn was a large building, and was filled with grain hay &c. 400 bushels of Oats and 100 bushels of Rye, and a Threshing Machine were consumed. No insurance. About 100 dollars worth of meat, was consumed in the smoke house. Total loss $1,000.

We are pained to learn that the clothing of Mrs. Mary Powell, wife of David Powell, Sr., of Cambria township, accidentally caught fire last Tuesday evening, and before assistance could be rendered her she was so severely burned that she died on Saturday.

"Will you have it rare or well done?" said a landlord to an Irishman, a few days ago, as he was cutting a piece of roast beef. "I love it well done ever since I am in this country--for it was rare enough we used to ate it in Ireland."

His remains, burned to a crisp, were discovered amid the smouldering ruins of the building next morning. He was a young man apparently about 21 years of age. We have not learned his name. The origin of the fire is unknown. Mr. Rees' loss is very heavy. All the furniture in the building was consumed. No insurance.

The Ebensburg Brass Band visited Carrolltown last Monday, and delighted the citizens of that place with choice music. A ball came off in the evening at the Home of Martin Schrotte, and while the band discoursed eloquent music, the "fair women and brave men" of Carrolltown waltzed to their hearts' content. The Band returned home on Tuesday morning, well pleased with the trip.

Death of Rev. T. M'Culloch.
We are pained to announce that Rev. T. M'Culloch, Pastor of the Catholic congregation at Summitville in this County, died of disease of the Lungs in Pittsburg, on last Monday. As a Priest he was true to the mission which his Divine Master had confided to him, & was devoted and zealous in the discharge of its sacred duties. He commanded in a remarkable degree the confidence, love and reverence of the congregation of which he had charge, and we are certain all of its members will receive the intelligence of his demise with feelings of profound sorrow. He was endowed with an intellect of the highest order, and we have heard him deliver sermons which in our opinion, exceeded any efforts of pulpit eloquence we ever heard before or since. We have not learned his age but presume he was about 45 at the time of his death.

James S. Clark Esqr., of this place has been appointed ticket agent at Cresson Station on the Penn. Rail Road. Mr. Clark is a gentleman and a good business man, and the Company have been fortunate in securing his service.

An Affecting Scene.
We last week briefly announced the death of Reverend Thomas M'Cullough. His remains were interred in the Catholic Cemetery, at Summitville, in this county, on last Wednesday. In company with a number of persons from this place we attended his funeral. The burial service of the Catholic Church is solemn and impression, but this is not the subject to which were now intend referring. Comparatively speaking, we were a stranger to the deceased, and the sorrow for his death manifested by members of the congregation of which he had no long been the spiritual Guide, excited at once our admiration and astonishment. His remains were placed in the aisle of the church, directly in front of the altar, and the members of the congregation in their turn, silently and unostentatiously took a last look at the face of their beloved Pastor. It was an affecting scene. Stern men, whom we thought were incapable of a demonstration of sorrow, after gazing on the face of the dead, retired weeping as they walked. It was a sincere demonstration of sorrow. No preferment can be hoped for from the inanimate remains of mortality; the voice of flattery cannot soothe the dull cold ear of death.

MARRIED.
On the 12th inst., by the Rev. J. Potis, Mr. JAMES LOVELL, to Miss MARGARET HOLLAND, both of White Township, Cambria County.

DIED--In this place on Thursday the 23d, Mrs. Rachel M'Donald aged 77 years.

The deceased was a sincere Christian, and bore last illness, which was long and painful, with extraordinary patience, and resignation to the will of God. Her memory will long be cherished by those who knew her in life.

Indian Massacre.
Mr. George W. Brown, of this place, handed us, on last Saturday, a copy of the Sentinel, published in Jacksonville, Oregon, containing an account of the murder of his brother A.J. Brown, and four other persons, by the Indian, about the first of May. He also gave us a letter from his brother F.M. Brown, containing all the particulars.

It seems the party left their homes, in Jacksonville or vicinity, for the purpose of selecting stock farms in a region of country as yet uninhabited. As they had no intention of intruding on Indian territory, they, of course, entertained no apprehensions of an attack, but were well armed. After the day had passed on which the party was expected to return, their friends began to fear that they had fallen into the hands of the Indians. A party was immediately organized for the purpose of searching for them. They immediately started on the trail of the missing party. The first expedition failed in discovering any clue to their fate, except that two or three dead horses, short with bullets, were discovered; they were identified as belonging to the missing men. A new expedition was organized, which finally succeeded in discovering the dead bodies of four of the party just as the search was about to be abandoned as hopeless, F.M. Brown adn Indian Agent Abbot made the discovery. A correspondent of the Sentinel says:

"The men had been assailed while lying in bed, as was very evident from their wounds. One was shot in the head, one had his head split open with an axe, one was shot in the breast and stabbed, and the other was shot through the breast. The throats of all were cut."

Mr. Brown in his letter says: "I found our brother in the grave. He had his throat cut, and a gash on the side of the head made by an axe. The wound extended from the back of his ear to the middle of his forehead." The following are the names of the murdered men: A.J. Brown, Eli Ledford, Samuel Probst, James Crow and S.F. Conger. The body of Mr. Ledford had not been discovered, but doubtless he shared the fate of his companions. A volunteer company had startead in pursuit of the Indians, but with what degree of success we have not learned.

Mr. Brown had on his person about three hundred dollars in money at the time of his murder. Of course, the Indians appropriated it to their own use before burying his remains. He was born and reared in Butler county, in this State, and was, we understand, about 24 years of age at the time of his death.

Death of an Old Citizen
Mr. John Glass, one of the Pioneers of this County, died at his residence in Alleghany township, near Loretto, on Thursday the 28th ultimo, in his 87 year of his age. He emigrated to this County some time during the year 1801, four years before the organization of the County, and a short time after Rev. D.A. Gallitzin commenced his settlement at Loretto. The territory now included within the limits of Cambria County then contained only a few hundred inhabitants scattered over a large scope of territory. They encountered all the privations to which the first settlers of the Western portion of Pennsylvania wre subject. But few of the present inhabitants of this County, can properly appreciate all the trials, privations and dangers, which its pioneers encountered and overcame. Mr. Glass settled on a tract of land near Loretto and by his own unaided exertions, succeeded in opening what is now one of the largest and most productive farms in Alleghany township. He was a strictly honest man, a good neighbor and a sincere but unostentations Christian. His remains were followed to their last resting place, by a large concourse of his relatives and neighbors, who long had loved and esteemed him. Of him it might with truth by said that

"His youth was innocent; his riper age
Marked with some act of goodness every day,
And Watched by eyes that loved him calm and sage,
Faded his late declining years away,
Cheerful he gave his being up and went,
To Share the holy rest, that waits a life well spent."

DEATH OF THE HON. RICHARD RUSH--This distinguished statesman died at his residence in Philadelphia on last Saturday morning, in the 79th year of his age. He was a son of Dr. Benjamin Rush, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. He was for some time Attorney General of this State, Attorney General of the U.S., Minister to Russia, also to Great Britian, and Secretary of the Treasury under Mr. Adams. He filled several other important offices, and was one of the first statesmen of his day.

Mr. J.F. Campbell, of the Blairsville Record, has been prosecuted, (persecuted we presume would be the better word) for Libel by Read, the late editor of the Blairsville True American. As Mr. Read commeced and carried on the controversy with Mr. Campbell, he has now no right to complain if he has had the worst of it, or to ask that the strong arm of the Law shall assist him in vanquishing his enemy. We hope Mr. Campbell may have a safe deliverance.

$20 REWARD!
BROKE JAIL of Cambria county, and escaped therefrom, on Friday, the 1st day of July inst., two men named SAMUEL M'CULLOUGH and HENRY JOHNSTON. M'Cullough is about 5 ft. 8 in. in heighth, fair hair, and about 25 years of age--has a wife living about Ninevah, in Indiana county, Pa. Johnston is about 6 ft. in heighth, dark complexion, dark hair, about 24 years of age--his father lives near Forwardstown, Somerset co., Pa., where said Henry made his home. Said prisoners were convicted at June sessions last, and Johnston was not yet sentenced. The clothing they had while in prison was left behind, and therefore must have had clothing furnished them by persons outside.

The above reward will be paid for both, or $10 for either, if taken up and accured in any prison in this State.

DIED
In this place, on Saturday the 6th inst, of Consumption, Mrs. ALICE CRAWFORD, consort of Isaac Crawford, aged 33 years 10 months and xx days.

The deceased was a member of the M.L. Church; and while sustaining that relation, she lived a consistent Christian life. Her illness, which was of several months duration, and was at times painful, was borne with meekness and patient resignation. For several weeks previous to her death, her "peace flowed like a river," her spiritual sky was unclouded, and she expressed her willingness to depart and be "with Christ, which is far better." Her death was peaceful, with scarcely a struggle she yielded up the spirit, which soared away to mingle with the blood washed throng, around the throne of God. The pure spirits of her four little children, which had passed on before, no doubt, welcomed her to the blissful home on high, where they shall be united forevermore. She leaves a husband and a number of relatives who mourn her absence, but they mourn not as those who have no hope, for their loss is here infinite gain.

MARRIED
At the Catholic Church in Carrolltown, on the 15th inst., Mr. JOSEPH GILL of Chest tp. to Miss MARY WENTZ, of Carroll township.

Well done Joe. You have acted wisely in bidding farewell to the gloomy value of celebacy, and emegrating to the happy state of matrimony, and we sincerely hope all the old bachelors of our acquaintance will go and do likewise.

Death of another Old Citizen.
MR. JAMES KEAN, died on last Friday, at the residence of Thomas Monahan, in Summerhill township, in the one hundred and fifth year of his age. He was probably the oldest man in the county. He was born in 1754 and was consequently 29 years of age at the time of the Declaration of American Independence. He was a native of Ireland, but emigrated to this country shortly after the close of the Revolutionary war. He was the father of Colonel John Kean, now of Kansas Territory, who represented this County several times in the State Legislature. One who knew him well informs us, that he was a good citizen and a kind neighbor. He never sought for notoriety, but was content with "acting well his part" as an honest and unpretending citizen. His intellect remained unclouded to the last, and he died cheered by the hope of ternal happiness beyond the grave. May he rest in peace.

The fruit crop in this County, with the exception of Clearfield township, is an entire failure. The June frost made a "clean sweep" of the applies peaches and plums, and the Mountaineers will be compelled to draw on their friends of the Juniata valley, for a supply of fruit for the approaching winter, spring and summer. We learn that in Clearfield township none of the orchards were injured by the frost, and that there the yield of fruit will be very large.

The dwelling house on the farm of Mr. John Bradley in Munster township, was destroyed by fire on last Thursday night. As the house was unoccupied, the fire was doubtless the work of an incendiary.

We learn that the right hand of Mr. Jerome Dawson of Allegheny township, was cut off a short distance below the wrist, by a circular saw on last Saturday. It seems he was endeavoring to remove some object from the log which was being sawed, when the saw caught his hand and severed it instantly from the arm. Our informant states that it was the opinion of the physicians in attendance, that it would be necessary to amputate the arm above the wrist in order to save his life.

Mr. Ebenezer Davis died in this place on last Sunday, aged about 36 years. He was for many years a soldier in the British army. He served under the celebrated but ill-fated Sir John Moore(??), during the Peninsula war, and was present at the battle of Corona. He was a native of Wales.

The Fair.
The fair of the Cambria County Agricultural Society was well attended, and the exhibition of live stock, vegetables, &c., quite respectable. The trotting match was a faslure, owing to reasons "which it is not meet we should set down." Judge Taylor delivered a very eloquent address on the last day of the exhibition. The fantastics made a very imposing display on a very small scale. They created a senation the effects of which was felt by many until two days after the election. More comments when we receive the list pf premioms.

However, as our friends the of Cambria Tribune are in the habit of boasting of the size, weight, &c., of the vegetables raised in the vicinity of Johnstown, we beg leave to lay before them at present, the following facts connected with the vegetable kingdom in and about Ebensburg. 9 Beets raised on the Poor House Far, exhibited at the fair, weighed 95 pounds. The following raised in the garden of our fellow townman John Fenlon, Esq., are certainly hard to beat: A head of Cabbage measuring 40 inches in circumference; two red peppers, each measuring 9 inches in circumference. A potato on exhibition, raised by John Humphreys, weighed 3 lbs. 6 oz, can our Johnstown friends beat that. 2 radishes raised by Mrs. Gardner, measuring 30 inhes in circumference each. We cannot refrain from speaking in terms of the highest commendation, of a "what not" manufactured by Mrs. E. J. Mills of this place. It displayed good taste, patience and stkill. The patent buggy wheels exhibited by our friend Mr. I. C. Singer, attracted considerable attention. They command the approbation of all competant judges.

***

Mr. Jacob Yost and wife of Carroll township, were thrown from a small wagon on the 6 inst., and severely injured. They are both about 70 years of age. They were returning home from this place by way of the old Carrolltown road, when their horse a short distance from town became suddently frightened at some object which arrested his attention, and he started off at a gallop down hill. At the foot of the hill the coupling of the wagon gave way, and the old lady and gentleman were thrown from the bed of the wagon in which they were seated, with considerable force. The old lady's right arm was broken in two places, but she mastered sufficient strength to walk back to town and obtain assistance. One of the old gentleman's ribs was broken, and he was severely bruised. Both are rapidly recovering.--The horse continued his "mad career" to a neighboring Farm House, where he was caught.

***

The dwelling house of William M'Gahey in Munster township, was destroyed by a fire on the night of the --- inst. The inmates narrowly escaped uninjured. It is not known how the fire originated. Loss about $400.

***

We have received a number of the Democrat and News, published in Devenport City, Iowa. It is edited by Maj. Thomas A. Maguire, formerly of this County. Maj. Maguire is an able and scarcastic political writer, and it will doubtless not be long until his services will be properly appreciated by the Democracy of Iowa. We wish our friend success in his new enterprize. Daily $5 per year, Weekley $2.

***

The new firm of D.J. Evans & Son, have now on hand, a splendid assortment of Ready Made clothing, as the old stand of Evans & Hughes. As in time of peace our government should prepare for war, so at this season of the year, every man should prepare for winter by providing himself with comfortable clothing. Call in and see the new firm and examine their stock.

***

We direct the attention of our readers, to the advertisement of W.M. Hoyt & Co's Nursery, in to days paper. They have disposed of a large quantity of Fruit and Ornamental trees in this county during the last few years, which have given general satisfaction. Their fruit trees are adopted to our mountain climate. Our friend P. Braniff, Esq., of Loretto, will attend to sales in this county.

***

W. G. Murray, Esq., Post Master, Hollidaysburg, will please accept our thanks for sending us the official vote of Blair County. The following is his letter to us:

Hollidaysburg, October 14, 1859.

MR. MURRAY,--Dear Sir.--Below I give you the official vote of Blair. I hope we may never look upon its like again.
