Cherished with an honored nun:
lirnr.v Up, Bovs.—All those who desire to
cniist in the cotnpany of Scouts or Skirmishers,
now forming in this place .ami Holiidaysburg,
to be under command of Capt. R. J. Crozicr and
First UieUt. Bolts, and to be attached as a flank
ing company to Col. S. Black’s regiment, should
ttcD up at. once and give in their names, as the
company will most likely leave this week, or
certain!} - cn Monday next, for the war. This
must prove a “crack company'’ in every sense
ot the word. It will have as good officers as
v;:il take the field, will be equipped with rifles
r.aj sword bayonets, and wili have an honorable responsible position in one of the finest and
iost officered regiments in the service. Capt.
t’roiier's company is composed of nearly, if not
aa, tarec months men, and consequently they
arc well drilled, and ready for immediate and
active service. Certainly this is an inducement
to join this company.
Amt Co.ntbacts. —Messrs! Dill & McAuley,
-i this place have contracted to furnish some
two hundred grmy wagons, and they arc now
finishing their work rapidly, turning out a num-
wr of wagons weekly.
Messrs. Allison & Lowther have a contract to
■ apply the Government with five hundred horses,
and they are gathering up and forwarding nags
as fust ns they can obtain them. Those who
have horses to sell, and.went the cash for them,
ilividd bring them along.
■Mr. John Shoemaker also hos a contract to
furnish five thousand pairs of shoes for the
'■nay. Ho advertises for one hundred journey
men shoemakers. Here is a chance for jours
out of a “ sit.”
A Noted Tp.avellek —On Friday evening
Inst, Prince Jerome Bonaparte, first cousin of
the present Emperor of the French, arrived in
'this place on the Mail Train and tarried all
night at the “ Logan House.” Ho is a rather
portly gentleman, and, if the portraits of the
great Napoleon we have seen are correct, Prince
Jerome bears a striking family resemblance.—
He was accompanied by some four or five offi
cers of the French army and navy. He travels
without ostentation, preferring to pass along
quietly rather than be lionized at every stop
ping place.

—By observing the shoulder straps worn by of
ficers of the armjqtbeir rank' can be readily as
certained. A major General is distinguished by
two silver stars on his shoulder straps; a Brig
adier General has but one star; a Colonel has a
silver embroidered spread eagle ; a Lieutenant
Colonel has a silver embrodered leaf; a Captain
15 known by two embroidered bars; a First
lieutenant has but one gold bar on the strap;
'-Second Lieutenant none at all. The cloth of
‘ke straps is as follows: Staff officers dark blue;
Mtillery scarlet; infantry light (or sky) blue;
twcinea medium (or emerald) green; cavalry

\ krakda &odce Pic Nic. — On Saturday last
the members of Veranda. Lodge, I. 0. 0. F., hold
their Annual pic nie in the grove adjoining the
Vest Ward School property. They had a tine
day for it, and pionty of good eatables, music
and dancing, and altogether, we think they en
joyed themselves delightfully.
JEST" The sudden changes of the weather, of
late have been productive of a great number
of colds. Winter bed-covering is very com
fortable at night, and a warm stove in the morn
ing is almost indispensable.
i The Sixth Annua', Catalogue of this flourish
ing institution has just been laid upon our table,
and we deem this a fitting time to call attention
to its chums upon our citizens. An examina
tion of the catalogue is Sufficient to convince
any one that no Seminary in the hind affords
I greater facilities for acquiring all the elements
of a solid and ornamental education, while in
some respects it is in advance of any with which
we ore acquainted. While many institutions
during the past year have either suffered a ma
terial, loss in their patronage, or been compelled
to succumb to the financial storm winch has
swept over the land, the attendance here has
I gone up to two hundred ami thirty-seven, a
marked increase over any previous year. From
I the Fast and the far West: pupils have been
i gathered within its walls,-while at homo the
| patronage has steadily increased,
i h srst class institutions for young ladies and
young gentlemen, were fur years a desideratum,
and their want a reproach tn Pittsburgh, Wc
| have the one in the Female College, and the
[ Trustees of the University arc making vigorous
■ effort? to supply the other. And why not have
tncun here? The of Pittsburgh,
its accessibility by river and rail, the beauty of
our surrounding scenery, and our central loca
i tion between the East and: the W’ost, combine
’ to make this point eminently fit to build up in
stitutions which shall stand abreast with any in
the laud. _ The Female College must ultimately
lead ah similar institutions, if we may jo-hue
from the vigor of its management, and 'the lib
erality displayed by its Hoard of Trustees.—
Every dollar of tue income is expended in that
way, that will give the greatest efficiency to the
College, and be most beneficial to its patrons.
Its management, too, has always been liberal.
While kept under moral control’ .as it certainly
should be, nothing of a merely sectarian char
acter is over permitted. .Mono need fear to
commit their daughters to the tuition of those
placed over its interests.
The Trustees, notwithstanding tiic pressure
in the times, have .elected', a very-full Faculty
for the coming year. Many of the teachers are
well known in the community, and the few new
ones, we arc informed, have had years of expe
rience, and come with the hi pi a- a recommenda
tions irom parties well known to the Trustees
| Several important §teps have been taken
\ winch must add greatly to the efficiency and
i attractiveness of the institution—such as the
| collection of a Library: a Graduate’s Gallery,
in which will be placed, from year tn year, the
likenesses of who gradate; a Cabinet to
which hundreds of specimens have already been
; donated : an Electro-Magnetic Telegraph, and
1 a Gallery ol Tine Arts, rieveral of these are
: novel, not being found in other institutions, but
; they are moves in the right direction. The
j Graduate's Gallery will net only be attractive
| in itself, but a source of pleasure in coming
. years to these who may come to spend an hour
| in their Ai'inu Mater, The telegraph will afford
i to those who wish it, an opportunity to become
‘ operators, and thus put them in possession of ,
: an excellent .resource for the future. Young j
, ladies have already been employed as operators,
; and must ultimately fill ail our telegraph offices, \
i and where so fitting a place to learn as in a ;
i Female College? The Gallery of Fine Arts :
' must necessarily accumulate slowly, but a com- \
| ir.enccment has been made, and wc will have a ;
! permanent Gallery in the city. The influence S
upon the young ladies connected with the school, i
cannot but be excellent.
In giving this extended notice of the College, !
i we arc doing a favor to our patrons who have i
| daughters to educate, and a duty to those who j
’ have so nobly'contributed.and labored to build i
i up a first-class institution., i
| Many, and possibly some who have the least ■
: oec.ason to urge it, will plead tiie stringency of i
| the times; hut a few months may bring about a i
: vast change. Should this not be the case, the .
j very pressure of the times is a strong reason for i
j the course indicated. Why doom the child to a',
I life of ignorance, to hoard up for it wealth
j which one of these financial orisises may sweep ;
j away in a day. Some who, last year, might |
j have educated their children, but were indiffer- j
l ent about the mutter, this year are unable.— j
i Far better give the child an education and no j
I wealth, than wealth and no education.; And .
i there is no one in even modepato circumstances I
I who may not, with tv little economy, give his j
! daughter an education, aad thus leave her a rc- j
I lianoe for future life. . i
I With unsurpassed buildings—an unusually j
j large and able Faculty—an extensive course of |
I study—and the new features which aro being ,
j introduced-7-tho College will dcscre, and doubt- j
I less will receive, a patronage second to none in j
J.the land. j

| The commanders of the regiments of volua
| teers accepted by this department in the States
l of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Con
j necticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island,
j New Hampshire, Maine and Michigan, will take
| notice of and conform promptly to the general
j order this day directed to tiie Governors of the
j States above named, which is as follows:
i To tiie Governor of the State of
By direction of the President of the United
States you are urgently requested to forward,
or cause to be forwarded immediately, to the
City of Washington, all the volunteer regiments,
or parts of regiments, at (ho expense of the Uni
ted States Government, that may be now en
rolled within your State, whether under your
immediate control or by acceptances issued di
rect from the War Department, or whether such
volunteers are armed, equipped or uniformed,
or not.
The officers of each regimental organisation
that may not be full, shall leave recruiting offi
cers at their several rendezvous, ami adopt such
other measures as may be necessary to fill up
their books at the earliest date possible. All
officers of volunteer regiments, on their arrival
will report to the Commanding General, who
will provide equipments and other supplies nec
essary for their comforts. To insure the move
ments or troops more rapidly than might other
wise be none, you will please confer with and
aid all officers of independent regiments in such
manner as may be, necessary to cfficct the object
in view. All clothing or supplies belonging to,
or contracted for the several regiments, shall be
forwarded to Washington for their use, detailed
reports of which shall be made to the Command
ing General. Signed,
Simon Cameron, Secretary of War.
By the President of the United States.
Whereas, A joint committee of both Houses
of Congress has waited upon the President of
(he United States, and requested him to recom
mend a day of public humiliation, prayer aud
fasting,' to be observed by the people of the
United States with religious solemnities, and
the offering of fervent supplications to Almighty
God for the safety and welfare of these States,
his blessings on their arms, and a speedy
ration to peace; and whereas, it is fit aud be
coming in all people, at all times, to acknowl
edge and revere the Supreme Government of
Cod, to bow in humble submission to Ilis chas
tisements, to confess and deplore their sins and
transgressions, in the full conviction that the
fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
and to pray with all fervency and contrition for
the pardon of their past offences, and for a
blessing upon their present and prospective
actions; and whereas, when our beloved coun
try, once, by the blessing of God, united, pros
perous and happy, is now afflicted with factious
and civil war, it is peculiarly fit for us to recog
nize the hand of God in this visitation, and, in
sorrowful remembrance of our own faults and
crimes as a Nation and as individuals, to hum
ble ourselves before Him and to pray for His
mercy; to pray that we may be spared further
punishment, though most justly deserved; that
mir arms may be blessed and made effectual for
the ro-cstablismcnt of law, order and peace
throughout our country, and that the inestima
ble boon of civil and religious liberty, earned'
under Ills guidance aud blessing, by the Labors
and suffrages of cur fathers, may be restored
in all its original excellency, Therefore I, Abra
ham Lincoln, President of the United Stales, do
appoint the last Thursday in September nctxtas
a day of humiliation, prayer and fasting for all
Ahe people of the Nation, aud I Jo earnestly
recommend to the people, and especially to all
ministers and teachers of religion, of all de
nominations, and to all heads of families, to
observe and keep that day according to their
oral creeds and modes of worship in all hu
mility, and with all religious, solemnity, to the
end that the United prayer of the Nation may
ascend to the Throne of Grace and bring down
plentiful blessings upon our own country
In testimon
whereof, &c.

turn gray, and the scalp on the crown of my head to lose
its sensibility and dandruff to form upon ih *E?.?h of these
disagrceabilitica increased with time, .and about 4 mouths
since a fourth was added to them, by’hair falling off the
top off my head and threatening to mpke mo bald.
In this unpleasant predicament, I was Induced tr» try
Wood's Hair Restorative, mainly to arrest the falling off
ofmyhair, for I had really no expectation that gray hair
could ever be restored to its original color except from
dyes. I was, however, greatly surprised to find alter tho
uso of two bottles only, that not only was tho falling off
arrested, but tho color was restored to the gray hairs and
sensibility to tho scalp, and dandruff ceased to form on ray
head, very much to the gratification of my wife, at whose
solicitation I was induced to try it.
For this, among the many obligations I owo to her sex,
I strongly recommend all husbands who value tho admi
ration of iheir wives to profit by my example, and uso it if
growing gray or getting bald. Very respectfully.
