For some time past we liavc been prom
ising our readers that if those who are in
debted to us would come forward and set
tle up, we would, on or about the first of
October, show them something never seen
in this section of the country. W ell, the ,
first of October has gone by, and wchave i
not announced our show os opened. Ofj
coarse you want to know the cause, and, ,
to begin with, we would say that the first
and most important condition of the terms,
upon which we promised to furnish the
exhibition, has not been complied with,
viz; but few have called to settle their
bills, and thus supply us with the means
to purchase it. Now it is not to be 05-
pected that we. can get up a show worth
looking at Without money. We won’t go
“on tick,” for it, and could notget it “on
tick” if we would. Again, the gentleman
who is engaged in getting up the exhibi
tion lias given us notice that hg cun not
have it completed in less than sixty days
from the Ist inst., which will be about the
Ist of December. Delinquent friends, you
have still time enough left to settle your
accounts and get in to see the show on the
first day that it is opened to spectators. —
Come right along, and make no delay in
settling up. The show is coininy, and we
must have tKc money to pay for it. Don’t
delay payment because the time is six
weeks in advance. It will be up before
ye are aware of it, and then you’ll feel bad
about not having paid us —at least you
ought to,
The Sweet Little Man.
[Hew is a very appropriate poem, respectful
ly dedicated to the “ Stay-at Home Rangers,”
The truthfulness 0 f the picture presented will
not bo questioned, and the point will be easily
arrived at. Let all the “ sweet little men” read,
Now while the soldiers arc fighting our battles,
Each at his post to do all that he can,
Down among rebels and contraband chattel?,
What are you doing my sweet little mau ?
All the brave boys under canvass arc sleeping,
All of thorn pressing to march with the van,
Far from the home where their swtot-heartt are weeping.
What are you waiting for my sweet liltlo man ?
You with the terrible warlike moustaches,
Pit for a Colonel or chief of a clan,
You with the waist made (or short belts and soahc-i.
Where are your shoulder-straps, sweet little man?
Bring him the buttoulc?s garment of woman,
Cover his face, lest it freckle a.pd tau ;
Master the Apron-String Guards on tin; common,
That is the corps for the sweet little man.
Give him for escort a file of young misses,
Each of them armed-with a deadly rattan;
They shall defend lym from laughter and Miscs,
Aimed by low boys at the sweet little man.
All the fair maidens about him shall clustery-1
Pluck the white feathers from bonnet and fair,
Stake him a plume like a turkey-wing duster;
That is the crest for the sweet little man.
0, but the Apron-String Guards arc the fellows!
Prilling each day since our troubles began I
“ Uaudlo your walkiug-sticks!” Shoulder umbrellas!’
That is the stylo for,the sweet little man!
Have we a nation to save! In the first place
Saving ourselves is the sensible plan,
■Surely the place where there’s shooting’s the worst place,
Where I can stand, says the sweet little man! .
Catch me confiding my person with strangers 1
Think, bow the cowardly Bull Runners ran!
lu the Brigade of Stay-at-home Hangers 1
Marches my corps, says the sweet little man!
Such was the stuff of the MaUkoff takers,
Such were the soldiers that scaled the Uedau;
Truculent housemaids and blood thirsty Quakers,
Brave not the wrath of the sweet little man.
Yield him the sidewalk, ye nursery maidens!
fiauae guipent! Budget, and right about Ann-
Fierce u a shark Id a school of meuhadeus,
See him advancing, the sweet little man!
When the red flails of the taUle.ficld threshers
Beat out the Continent's wheat from its bran,
While the wind scatters the chaffy Scccsbcrs,
What will become of our sweet little man?
When the brown soldiers comeback from the borders,
How wfU he look when his features tbeyscan?
Uow will he feet when ho gets marching orders,
Signed by bid lady-love* Sweet little man!
Fear not for him, though the rebels expect him—
Life is too precious to shorten its span;
Woman her broomstick will raise to protect him;
Will she hot fight fur the sweet little man?
Now then three cheers foi the Stay-at-home Ranger,
Blow the great Fish horn and beat the big'pau!
First in the field that is farthest from danger
Take your white feather plume, sweet little man!
J®- The Blair County Whig, of last week, in
speaking of Gen. Sherman’s body guard says;—
“It was originally intended for-General Rob 1
ert Anderson, and the suggestion, coupled with
—■a steam biscuit-bakery has been pnt in oper
ation at Honolulu, Sandwich Islands,”
Why the tuggeetion should be coupled with a
tleam litcuit bakery, at Honolulu on the Sand
wich Islands, is more than wo can understand.
Will our friends of the Whig explain.

BS* We copy the following paragraph from
a correspondent of the Pittsburgh Post, who is
in Col. Blacks regiment. We arc informed by
one who was present, that CopL Crazier, and
not Capt. Patterson, was in command of the
pickets. It will be seen that the “ Blair County
Sharp-Shooters” are getting a touch of Picket
Two or Three days since, companies B and M,
Captains Patterson and Crozier, were detailed
from onr regiment to go out on picket, about
two miles from camp on fhe Lewinsville road,
north of Fulls Church. Capt. P.nnd Lieuten
ants McKee and Salisbury, with Capt. Crozier
aud Lieutenants Potts and Murray, with their
men, responded promptly aud reported them
selves tp Col. Skillan, of the New. .Vork Four
teenth, who was in command of a.battallion of
picketers from our Division. Capt. Patterson
was placed in command of one hundred and
fifty men, and daring the three days the boys
were out they bad a good time. While out,
one of his command captured seven cows, sup
posed to belong to a secessionist named Sher
wood, and reported them to Captain Patterson.
The Captain was disposed to consider them con
traband and drive them into our camp, but
when a woman presented herself and stated that
her husband was absent from home, and that
these cows wore the main support of several
children, the Captain caved in and permitted
'the woman to send after the stock. A great
many other little incidents occurred while we
were out, but as 1 have not time to note them
and you have not room to publish them, will
let them go. ;

■ Mas KxiiLKD. —Oa Friday Evening week a
man apparently an Irishman, whose name is
unknown, was killed by the Fast Line West,
about three miles above Mifilintpwn. He was
sitting on the track, and was struck by the cow
catcher. The train was stopped and the man
was picked up, still breathing but was un
concious. He was taken to Lewistown and
medical attendance provided, died on Satur
day at 11 o’clock. He was burled iu the I’oor
House grave-yard., He was apparently about
40 years, of age. , Nothing was found about his
person to indicate Lis name or residence.
A Curiosity. —Our old friend, Joe Metzgar,
brought to Our office, this '.Friday) morning,
a stalk of cabbage containing seventeen well
shaped heads, and iwo or three in embryo.—
The centre head is large and sound, and several
of tho outside ones are lit for use. It was
raised on the farm of Andrew Hartman, in
Sinking Valley, Can any one else produce
such a tutus natures?

We have received a long letter from our old
friend, Jas. T. Moore, of this place, now iq
campon Meridian Hill, 'near Washington City.
He says their regiment (Ist I). C. Vols.) has
been under marching orders for ten days, but
where- they arc to be Sent none of them know,
The &ays arc quite warm for the season, but
the nights are quite the reverse. They have
plenty of good wholesome food, and warm wool
en clothes, with the exception of bed-clothes. —
There is but a single blanket to each man.—
The boys from this part of the country, whose
names will be found iti the list below, are e.ll j
in good health. They arc well contented. The
only dissatisfaction manifested arises from hav

The Effects of Civil War, —The
division of families caused by the war,
particularly in some of the border States,
is painfully illustrated in "two instancies.
A Louisville correspondent of the Cincin
nati Commercial writes as follows ;■ —Capt.
Henry Clay, who has just received a com
mission as Assistant Adjutant under Brig
adier General Richard W. Johnson, is a
young man of fine abilities, a West Pointer,
though, not a graduate, and of undoubted
and strong Union sentiments. His posi
tion is a very strange one, and is one
among the many romantic stories of the
day. His grandfather was the sage of
Ashland, and his father died at Buena
Vista. His uncle, James B. Clay, is a
secessionist, now under bonds to appear
for trial for treason. Another uncle,
Thomas, in the U. S. service, is responsi
ble for the appearance for trial of James
B. Clay. A brother, Thomas Clay, jr., is
on the rebel General Beauregard's staff,—
His sister’s husband, with whom young
Clay resides iuj this city, has lately enteied
the U. S. servipe with two other brothers,
for the war, and now comes young Harry’s
turn, and lie accepts the unsolicited com
mission which General Johnson has ten
dered him. Here is another example ;
John J. Crittenden has one son who is a
Brigadier General in the rebel service.
Another son is a Brigadier General in the
army of the Union, but holding his com
mission from the State of Kentucky.—
Another holds the rank of Captain in the
Federal army. John J. Crittenden him
self, at the agp of 70, bears arms as a pri
vate in the Home Guard of Frankfort.

Military Uniforms. —There is, perhaps, no department
of military business in which there has been a more
marked improvement than iu the clothing of soldiers.—
Not since, officers and privates were clad in
garments which were almost skin-tight. They wore leather
stocks, which were worthy of the name, for they kept tho
wearer jn tribulation; while th*ir padded breasts and
tight sleeves made volition a matter of great difficulty.
Duriug the present war, such of our volunteers us pro
cure their uniforms at the Drown Stone Clothing Hall of
Kockhill & Wilson, Nos. 693 and 605 Chestnut strset above
Sixth, Philadelphia, obtain clothing that is perfectly easy,
substantial and becoming. Tho firm named hrve gone
largely into the business of making Military Clothing,
and their facilities enable them to fill tho largest orders In

ORtruottsYour note of the 16th inst., has been re
ceived, saying that you had heard that I had been bene
fitted by the use of 'Wood’s Hair Restorative, and request
ing my certificate of the fact if I bad no objection togivoif.
I award it to you cheerfully, because I think it due. My,
ftge is about 50 years; the color of my hair auburn, and
inclined to curl. Some five or six years since it began to
turn gray, and the scalp on the crown of my head to lose
fta sensibility and dandruff to form upon It. Each of these
disagreeabilitics increased with time, and about 4 months
since a fourth was added to them, by hair falling off the
top off my head and threatening to make me bald.
in this unpleasant predicament, I was induced to try
Wood's Hair Restorative, mainly to arrest tlio falling off
of my hair, for 1 bad really no expectation that gray hair
could ever b« restored to its original color except from
dyes. 1 was, however, greatly surprised to And after the
use of two bottles only, that not only was the felling off
arrested, but the color was restored to the gray hairs and
sensibility to the scalp, and dandruff ceased to form on my
head, very much to the gratification of my wife, at whoso
solicitation 1 was Induced to try it.
For this, among the many obligations I owe to her sex,
1 strongly recommend all husbands who value the admi
ration of their wives to profit by my example* and use it if
growing gray or getting bald. Very respectfully,
ben. a. Lavender.

Properly'speaking* every derangement of the Liver or
Billions ty.Htcm U;v Liver Complaint, Liu the peculiar state
of tho Liver to which 1 now have reference is a CArom'c
JJll'clion. and usU-hJIv arises from a torpid or congestive
state of that important organ. Sometimes the hilo U de
tlcient in quantity, or vitiated in quality, or both those
states prevail at the same time. Sometimes the dtaeauu is
owing to obstruction in the duct pipe which Convoys
the bile from the liver into the bowels; This ohstruciiou
is very frequent, and is usually caused by the pipe being
clogged up by thick tenacious slime or mucous, nad some
times by gall stones. The tiie Is then thrown Luck into
the gali-bhuider. w here it is absorbed by ni'.ni'.Uv'ns small
vessels wljuli rorrvey h into the Thoracic I)uct. a pipe
that runs up along flic spine, and terminates, in and emp
ties UseJf into the large vein of tho lot shoulder, near ila
juucti u with the veins *>-f the bead and neck, and thcuco
the bile is conveyed to the heart and becomes mixed with
the blood.' The bile in this manner being diverted ftom
its proper coarse, and circulating in a part o f the body
where it never was designed by nature, produces much evil,
and often disastrous effects upon the health of the indi
vidual —because, for want of healthy bile to mix with tho
half-digested food, a complete separation never lakes place
between tho.chyle (the milky liquor which forms tho
blood) and those port! ous of the food designed by nature
to be ejected from the bowels —for tho bile,.when present,
purili-s and separates tin* healthy fr. m the unhealthy por
tions. in the same manner that isinglass or white of eggs
separate wine or cider from their impurities—and, conse
quently, the very fountain of life is vitiated and coiruptcd.
Costiwncss prevails—or alternately cottivencts or diar
rha-u— wind in the. stomach and bowels, uud the patient is
often annoyed with worms, and frequently with tho piles.
The coarse particles of the 141.. thus mixed with the blood,
more or less obstruct the pores of Hie akin and small blood
vessels, and hence give rise to various diV«-»sc» of the skin,
such os erysipelas, cozcnm. itching*, small watery vessels,
blot chess tumors, pimples, scarfii.eb*, bulls. Pore eyes, sores
and, ulcers of various kinds. The skin is more or

and sometimes there is a perfect jaundice. The wfufcoi

passage through the kidneys, and, by its acrimony, pio
duces- pains iu the Lack, and scalds and irritates all the
urinary passage*. Some days the passage of urine is pro
fuse, and natmal in appearance; at other limes it is scanty,
and the desire to evacuate Is frequent uud urgent. Some
times the color is nearly white and milky, but usually it is
high colored, red or yellow, with a rank, offensive odor,
and sometimes it is bloody.
The tongue is usually more or loss cosited with a brawn
scurf. There is irritation, and frequently chronic Inilam
matiuij of the inner surface of the stomach and bowels,
with (i‘tenderness on prepare, and a soreness along tho
lower edge of the riL.-u

feeling of chilliness, and coldness of the foot and knees*
and along the inside of the thighs—sour or bitter or.icta-,

after eating.
There is a feeling of oppression across the stomach and

often frightful dreams, low' spirits, languor, want of ener

and a disitositiou to magnify everything, sometimes great]
wAtchrallness and m inability to sleep—at others great
drowsiness, weariness, and disinclination to motion. ; •
AT TIMES THE FACE is flushed, with more or. less
fever, especially at night or iu the afternoon. Sometimes
violent colics, and wandering pains in various parts of the.
body. Frequently there is a short hacking cough, with a
huskiutt-B of the throat, and sometimes a very severe,• dry*
and hard cough, which is often mistaken for consumption.;
This cough often commences in the latter part of the night
or early in the morning, and lasts for hours, frequently,,
producing nausea aud vomiting. If there bo any expecto
ration, it is a tough, ropy, tenacious phlegm, which «d

chronic pleurisy pains in various parts of the chest, which

Sometimes abscesses form iu the liver, and pressing up
