NUMBER One.— You have often
heard,"<iear reader, of "number one"
this and "number one" that, but have
vou ever called at No. 1, Anderson's
Row and looked at the cheap and ex
cellent goods sold by J. M. Shoemaker?
If not, don't delay a moment longer.
Mr.Shoemaker hasjyst returned from
the city with * large supply of new
goods which will be sold very low.
GOULDS'* SEE THEM.— Oar people
watched long and well on the night of
the promised meteors, but "couldn t
pee nothing." Now, if they will but
co to Irvine and Berk dresser's, they
will not be disappointed in this way,
as they can see and buy almost every
thing'at their store, especially boots
•and shoes, cheap clothing, queensware,
perfumery, etc. Remember "The Reg
ulator," Anderson's Row.
IirTCiiEKiXG. —The season for kill
ing, putting up andsaltingdown mam
moth porkers, has been for weeks, and is
now going on hereaboutson a large scale,
and those who have fostered, fed and
fattened the hog kind, are busily engag
ed in storing away safely the reward of
their produceand foresight. An abun
dant supply of sausages, scrapple, shoul
ders hamsand pudding, create comforta
ble contemplations around our winter
firesides.
DECAMPED WITH sßoo.—On Tuesday

a teamster in the employ of Dr. A. V.
MeXeai, of Brush Creek township.hav
ing taten a load of leather to Bloody
Run, received at the Express office
there, a package of SBOO for his employ

"Crossings," and decamped with the

Ax item lately appeared in the pa
per- in regard to one of the discharged
Pennsylvania Railroad conductors,
about which the Altoona Tribune has
the following: "We deem it due to
Jos. S. M. Gibson, recently a conductor
on the Pennsylvania Railroad, to cor
rect an item going the rounds of the
press, to the effect that he was com
ttitted to prison in Philadelphia, in
it-fault of $19,000, for embezzling the
finds of the Company. The truth is
le was not arrested for embezzlement,
hit for threatening actions toward
'inkerton, the detective, and he was
lot in jail but -imply in charge of a
police officer."

WHO HAS CHA NGED? —Thesenseless
charge is cot stantly repeated by the
Radicals that President Johnson, in
proposingtoadmit loyal representatives
in Congress from the (States lately in re
bellion, has betrayed the party which
elected him to office. But did not Mr.
Lincoln, from the first, propose to do
the same thing? Was not Mr. Lincoln
bitterly assailed for his policy by Ben.
Wade, Henry Winter Davis, and other
men of "progressive" (?) ideas? And
was not Mr. Lincoln sustained by the
people, and renominated and triumph
antly re-elected, with Mr. Johnson's
name on his ticket?
We copy below a letter written by
Mr. Lincoln to Hon. Edward Stanly,
whey he was about to return to his du
ties as military goveruorof North Caro
lina, which clearly indicates Mr. Lin
coln's views upon reconstruction:
WHERE TIIF. CHANGE IS.
E x F.c U T r v E M A xs i O N , WAS u i XG TO X,
September 26th, 18(52.—H0n. Edward
Stanly: My DearSir—Your note inform
ing me that you will leave for North
Carolinasoon is received. Your conduct
as military governor, as reported to me
by General Burnside, and as I have
heard it personally from yourself, has
my entire approbation, and it is with
great satisfaction that I learn you are
now to return in thesainecapacity, with
the approbation of the War Depart
ment.
I shall be much gratified, if you can
find it practicable, to have congression
al elections held in that State before
January. It is my sincere wisli that
North Carolina may again govern her
self conformably to the Constitution of
the United States.
Yours, very truly, A. LINCOLN.

Hard Times In tlie West Predicted.
An Indianapolis correspondent of
the New York Herald gives a gloomy
account of the financial prospect in the
West: "Commercial disaster seems to
! be impending on every hand in the
west. There must come a crash, and
| that speedily. Already there have
I been several premonitory failures of
business houses in this city, and thorn
\ isa painful constriction of the money
| market. The wheat crop failed. Mon
ey has been constantly flowing out, and
nonecoming in. The corn crop, though
large, has been terribly injured by frost
and wet weather, until there is little
nutriment in it. Hog feeders, who
; bought their stock on foot at ten cents
per pound, can get no better offer than
five or five and a half cents, net, from
packers. Two large packing houses
have gone into liquidation on account
of losses last year. Altogether, every
thing looks bad, and we expect hard
! times in the west."
Indian Hostilities™!"nited States Troops
Sftirdered.
ST. LOUIS, Dec. 7.— Letters from
Montana relate a terrible state of things
! among the small number of troops stu-
I tioned at the different posts from Vir
ginia City to Forts Smith and Kearney.
; Letters from Fort Smith say: " From
i this point down to the Platte the road
is a graveyard. About 160 men have
i been killed by the Indians as far as
! known. We have had no intelligence
i from Fort Kearney for many days ami
fear that communication is cut off.
The Crow Indians report 1,600 lodges
: of hostile Indians moving towards the
; post far the purpose of capturing it.

TALLAHASSE, Dec. 6. —The House of
Representatives of this (state have
taken up the report of the committee
to whom was refcrml the proposed
('onstituiional amendment, and have
by a unanimous vote agreed to that re
port. The report, it will be remem
bered, recommended the rejection of
the amendment.
ADDRESS OF THE INDIANA DEMO
CRATIC COMMITTEE.— The neonx-ratic
Central Committee of Indiana has is
sued an address to the Democratic
and National Union men of Indiana,
announcing the results of the late po
litical i-anvass, and claiming that an
ovoi whelming majority oi the people
of the United States are decidedly
in favor of the President's reconstruc
tion policy ; that Congress only repre
sents fortv-three per cent, of the entire
population; that the Executive De
partment is the only branch of tlie Gov
ernment representing a majority ot the
people ; and re-endorsing the principles
of the Indiana Democratic Convention
of March 15th, and the Philadelphia
August Convention.
It is a curious fact connected with deep
