Mjjsdto Maple SnoAß.—For reasons known
w all our readers there will be much more maple
sugar made during the coining season by those
who have the facilities than during any previous
rfasous In view of this we take from the
jlurrii-hunt Telegraph a few instructions which may
uot come amiss, and which our rural readers may
relv upon as being valuable.
Almost every one knows how to make maple
sugar; but it would seem from the quality of most
vre find in market, that few know how to make it
right, or if they know how, they are too careless or
too lazy to take the necessary pains.
Tap the trees with a half-inch augur, put in
spiles of elder, and catch the sap in clean buck
ets or crocks; gather the sap into clean barrels or
tubs, aud boil it immediately down to good syrup;
then strain it'into a sound oak barrel in which
allow it to stand over night by which time it will
settle perfectly clear without the use of eggs, milk,
or any such articles in boiling. Place a faucet in
the barrel, tlirec inches from the bottom, through
which the dear syrup can be drawn off without
disturbing the sediment, ©raw it off, and boil
over a brisk fire till (on - dropping some of the
syrup into cold' water) it will break like glass, then
slip into wooden trays to cool, and when it is
grained stir it briskly and break the lumps. By
this method it can be made as white as the best
New Orleans or Havana, and will command the
highest price in market. The best pans or kettles
for making sugar are shallow, and made of sheet
iron, they should be set in an arch or furnace of
brick and stone, that will stand fire. The great
secret in making good maple sugar is to have every
thing neat and clean, and perform'the work with
activity and care. '
Duff’s MmojkJ?riiß CouJiGE, Pittsburgh.— ■
The foundation of this noted establishment, nearly
a quarter of a’ century ago, says the Newcastle
/Mwrence Journal, formed a new cra in Commer
cial education. With tbe accnmnlated experience
uf nearly twenty years in inland and maratinie
commerce, the Principal at once enlarged the boun
daries of the merchant’s education to a regular
collegiate course of study. His success soon filled
the country with imitators; few, if any of whom,
ever had any practical experience as merchants or
accountants, their attempts to teach the practice of
what they never practiced themselves, amounts to
nothing more than that of common schools. All
experience proves that it is to the practical busi
ness man alone that we must look for reliable in
struction in the commercial; profession. By the
new circular of this time-honored establishment,
we perceive that its students from all quarters re
tain an indelible impression of the perfection of
their training far badness.
SqDDKK Death.—The uncertainty of life’s ten
ure was perhaps never more forcibly illustrated
than in the death of Mrs. Catharine Foust, wife of
djicob Foust, of Gaysport, which occurred in this
place last 'Thursday. The deceased lady was
walking in a funeral procession, on its way to the
Baptist cemetery, and when opposite the residence
of Mr. John Bollinger, on Penn street, she was
stricken with apoplexy and fell upon the pavement
in an insensible condition. She was carried into
the residence of -Mr. Bollinger and medical aid im
mediately summoned, but before the arrival of the
physician the vital spark bad fled and her immor
tal spirit winged its way to the realms of Him who
gave it. She was about fifty years of age, and
leaves a husband and several children to mourn
their sudden and irreparable
©■On one of the cold nights last week an aged j
man in crossing the B. B. bridge near Mr. Bous

feet into the deep water below. After floundering
in the water and ice foreome time; he caught hold
of one of the ; piers, where he .hung for three hours
with his head just above water. A young man
returning home about 11 o’clock heard his screams,
and rescued him from his perilous condition, took
him to a neighboring house, and had him oared

■Charge of Elbctioh Polls.—On Saturday
next, an election will be held at the house of Jacob
Weis, jn West Ward, for the purpose of determin
ing whether the place of holding elections shall be
renewed. Mi. Weis wishes the polls removed
frbm his building, which he occupies as a kitchen.
We believe it requires a two-third vote of the Ward
to effect the change. The election will be held be

A Few Words to Cash Butees.—The “Pan- (
ic Store” being the only one in this section of the ,
State that sells exclusively for cash, and at cash
prices, the proprietor wishes to impress a few facts
"and figures upon the minds of cash buyers:
Ist,'That he has but one price on his goods, and
that price only five per cent, advance on cost.
; 2d, That by doing a strictly cash bnsiness -he
can does sell cheaper than any honse which
does a credit, because, Ist, parties buying at a
credit store, even though they pay cash for their
. purchases, pay credit prices, -for the reason that
the proprietors of credit-stores are afraid to sell to
cash enstdmers at lower figures than:they do to
'their credit customers, lest their credit customers
should find it opt and withdraw their patronage;
i and, because 2d, by selling for cash only hfe gets
: no bad accounts oh his books and loses no money,
consequently he is not compelled to tax paying
: customers to make up his losses on non-paying
ones. s . , , ■
3d. For proof of these assertions pe refers to
the following figures:

istic good natures, and disjunction to overlook dis- ’
crepaneies, I shall endeavor to give yon a few ink
lings of city life at Washington. You must re
member that for the last two months I have been
a resident of this city, baying been detailed by or
der of Gen. McClellan for the purpose of printing
for his staff, consequently my present situation is
somewhat of an improvement npon my former
“life in camp,” being much more pleasant aud
agreeable. I now enjoy luxuries unknown to those
in Camp, and you may rest assured I enjoy them
right heartily. Having but recently emerged from
the dullness and monotony of camp life to the en
joyment of city life and its luxuries, I cannot
but sympathise with my fellow-soldiers left behind
in their I trials and often spile ring. And now that
mid-winter is making another, and I hope a final
effort, as evinced by the cold March wind, inter
mingled with sleet, snow and rain which beats in
our faces here, that heart must be cold as winter
itself that does not sympathise with those brave
men who have left their cheerful firesides and ate
now risking their all, even life itself and patiently {
enduring the privations and sufferings of camp life
for their country’s sake. What wonder that our
boys are anxious for an encounter with the enemy
when the reason itself is almost beyond endurance ?
Since I have been luxuriating in the city I hate
been taking notes and improving in the study of
mankind. The principal street here is Pennsyl
vania Avenue, and as yon pass along this thorongh
fare of elegance and fashion, poverty and rags,
you meet many objects of interest and deep com
miseration. Probably the first you will meet is a
member of the bon ton, dressed up to the very
summit of fashion, apparently sailing above the
throng of more plainly dressed underlings. Then
there comes a poor, half-starved mortal, dragging
out a wean' life, looking <B though the world bore
him spite and was wreaking it out every day of his
miserable existence j and who know's but that it is
only too true. Again we see a bright-eyed, smiling
little beauty, skipping along with' fairy-like smooth
ness, creating an agreeable contrast with the two
former. She is an angelic creature, else why
should the eyes of every passer-by fall upon and
follow her ? Ah! were it not for such pure and
lovely flowers we find in pur rambles through the
garden of life, what a bleak world this would be.
And then, as we pass by Willird’s Hotel, we come
in contact with many of the military profession,
officers and privates. It is really amusing to see
with what effort some of these military fledgings
endeavor to make themselves conspicuous in the
public eye. Here we see young, smoothtaced lieu
tenants, who probably never had a gun in their,
hands, and scarce know the difference between
quarter-guard and jacket-guard, strutting along
with their brilliant shoulder straps, evidences of
their rank, and polished swords dangling by their
sides, looking as though they imagined the success
and prosperity of the country depended on them
alone. Next you --meet ;the grey-haired veteran,
walking along in all the stateliness and grandeur
of a Napoleon, conscious of having performed his
duty on the “tented field,” and even on the battle
field, and congratulates himself on his ability and
willingness to stand by his country's flag in the
hour of danger, and even to die in defence of the
Stars and stripes; Ih the midst of all his con
scious dignity,'however, the aged hero foils not to
elevate himself with all the gaudy trapplings pecu
liar to his rank, forgetting none, not even the large
protruding spurs and faultless gauntlets. And
here comes the petty or non-commissioned officer,
sergeant, for instance, or corporal, and even the
high-private. These, too, evince the same pas
sionate desire for shew and love of admiration as
their commissioned superiors. There goes, the
cavalry relief-guard, oh horse-back, engaged re
lieving the sentinels, who are placed on almost {
every comer. How handsome they look, with
their light, shining sabres and yellow trimmed
uniforms. Of all items of the service I admire
the cavalry meet, yet for effectiveness in war I pre
fer the artillery or infantry. Cavalry are rather
romantic and theatrical, while artillery and in
fantry are real and substantial.
Yonder comOs the Provost-guard, making their
customary patrol through the city, in search of dis
sipated, wandering and unruly soldiers. The offi
cer of the guard is, perhaps, one of fragility, and Illy
snited to encounter the .trials of a campaign.—
Anon he steps boldly up tb one superior to him
self in rank, halts his squad of men and demands
the officer’s pass. It ip duly pronounced correct
and off they move to meet, a short'distance farther
on, a poor luckless knight who is just emerging
from a drinking saloon, after a drunken debauch,
in the comae off which! he has lost his pass. Oh
how excitingly the mjiniatnre commander orders
Kim to “ fall in," and away goes the poor fellow to
the guard-house, there to sigh and sorrow over his
fallen condition, perhaps cursing the hour when he
consented to abide the dictates of such austere
commanders. This system, of petroling the streets
has a very salutary effect Indeed the city is
guarded from one end to }the other. There is a
mounted guard at every street comer to prevent
fast riding or driving through the streets and take
up estrays from camp bn horseback, and a sentry
at every public building to prevent fires, &c., in
addition to the Provost-guard and city watch
men. Truly tins is a;military city.
The Provost-Guard exercises unlimited power
and authority, and in some respects it is right—
especially wherein; it relates to drinking saloons.
They enter any tavern or place where liquor is
sold, and if a soldier is found drinking, or known
to have received liquor there, the contents of the
bar are immediately destroyed, the house shut up,
and the proprietor- or bar-tender lined and sent to
jail., There are matey in the city who have lost j IMPORTANT INFORMATION,

Brown, of the Mississippi Twentieth, ‘ Myself and
my officers will sign a paper against Floyd, and if
he is not hang by the Confederate government, it

Breeding Fish.—A new branch of industry
is about to be established by the Emperor Louis
Napoleon. In evety port of France immense res
ervoirs are to be dug for the purpose of breeding
fish for the consumption of the navy, as Well as
for the sailors of the merchant service. An im

Postmaster General; Herschel V. Johnson, of
Georgia, Attorney General.
MiLrrAfffUKiroaMß.—There is, perhaps, no department
of military business in which there has. been a more
marked improvement than in the clothing of soldiers.—
Not many years since, officers and privates were clad in
garments which were almost skin-tight. They woreloathor
stocks, which were worthy of the name, for they kept the
wearer in tribulation; while their padded breasts and
tight sleeves mode volition a matter of groat difficulty.

A Card to the Suffering.
The Hev. Wm. Cosgrove, while laboring as a missionary
in Japan, was cured of Consumption, when all othermeans
had failed, by a recipe obtained from a learned physician
residing in the great city of Jeddo. This recij>e bos cured
great numbers who were suffering from Consumption,
Bronchitis. Sore Throat, Coughs and Colds, and the debility
and nervous depression caused by these disorders.
Desirous of beoofitting others, I will send this recipe,

For DYSPEPSIA, these Pills are really an invaluable
article, gradnally changing the vitiated secwjtions of tl>e
Stomach and Liver, and producing healthy-actkm inthose
important organs. In coses of long standing, a cure will
be more speedily effected by using, in conjunction with the
MIFUGE. according to directions. -
For Liver Complaint, Gout, Jaundice, Affections of the
Bladder and Kidney*, Fevers. Nervousness, Diseases of the
Skin,-Imparity, of the Blood, Sik Headache. Oosdveuess.
Piles, Female Diseases, and, Billions Affections, these Pills
have proved themselves eminently successful. All that Is
naked tor them is a fair trial.
As these Pills have proved themselves so ominetly suc
cessful in removing diseases of the Liver, Dyspepsia and
dlseaseVof the Skin.l haVe thought it advisable to add Ihe
following remarks on
This is a.disease much talked abOßt,bat ai the .nanw
time very imperfectly understood.
; Properly speaking, every derangement of the Invar or
BiUiooi Qrstem li a Liver Complaint, but the peculiar state
, of the Liver to which 1 now have reference is a* Chronic
JJft&ion, and usually arises from a torpid or congestive
: stale uf that important organ. Sometimes the bile is de
ficient in quantity, or vitiated in quality, or both these
status prevail at the same time. Sometimes the disease m
; owing to obstruction in the duct or pipe which conveys
the bile froin tho liver into the bowels, This obstruction
is very frequent, and Is usually caused by the pipe being
clogged up by thick tenacious all mo or mncaoup, and some
times by gall-stones. tThe bile is then thrown back into
! the gall-bladder, where it is absorbed by numerous small
vessels which convey It into the Thoracic Duct, a pipe
that runs up along the spine, and terminates in and emp
ties itself into the largo vein of the left shoulder, near ite
Junction with the veins of the head and neck, and thence
tho biln is conveyed to the heart and l»ccomeB mixed with
the. blood. The bile in this banner being diverted from
its proper course, and circulating in a part of tho body
whore it never was designed by nature, produce* much evil,
and often disastrous effects Upon the health of the Indi
vid u al—be cause, lor want of Wealthy bile to mix vitb the
half-digested food, a complete separation never takes plaee
between the chyle (tho milky liquor which forms the
blood) and those portions of tho food designed by nature
to be ejected from the bowels—for the bile, when •'present,
purifies and separates tho healthy from the unhealthy por
tions, in tho same manner that isinglass or white of>ggs
separate wine or cider from their impurities^-and, conse
quently, thp very fountain of life is vitiated and corrupted.
Costiveness prevails—or alternately coetiveuess or diar- ,
rhoea—wind in the stomach and bowels, and the patient is
often annoyed with worms, and frequently with the piles.
The coarse particles of the bile 3 thus mixed with the bloodi
more or less obstruct the pores of tho akin and small blood
vessels. and hence give rise to various diseases of the skin,
such as erysipelas, cozetua, itching*, small watery vessels,
blotches* tumors, pimples, scurfiness,' boils, sore eyes, sores
land ulcers of various kinds. The sklnls men or lets
yellow, and (when the disease is of long standing,) often
very cforfc,and ha* a disagreeable, duty, area*? appearance;
and sometimes there Is a perfect Jaundice., the tofctaoi
the eyes also has a green or, geUow tinge.
MORE OR IiESS bile is strained from the blood lb its
; passage through the kidneys, ahd, by its acrimony, pro
duces pains in tho back, and scalds and Irritates all the
. urinary passages. Some days the. paseagdnf urine is pre
fuse, and natural in appearance; at other times it is scanty,
and the desire to evacuate is frequent and utgeht. Some
times the color is nearly white and milky, bntusuftllylt hi
high colored, red or yellow, with a rank, dfffentfve odor
and sometimes It is bloody. ' *. “ ■ ( ‘' ’ ’
Tho tongue is usually more or'lees coated with a brown
scurf. There is irritation, and frequently chronic inflam
mation of the inner sur&co of the stomach and bowels,
with a tenderness bn pressure, and a soreness along the
lower edge of the ribs.
other times there is a voracious appetite. There Is often a
feellng of chilliness, and coldness of the .feet and knees,
and along the Inside of the thighs—sour or bitter eructa
tions, and sometimes a spitting or throwing up of the food
aftereating. \
There is a feeling of Oppression across the stomach and .
chest, as if pressed down by a weight; troublesome and
often frightful dreams, low spirits, languor, want of ensr* -
gy, melancholy restlessness and diacontentednesa, dreamt
ness of mindr-timorousness and a great deal of trpubje,
and a disposition to magnify everything, sometimes great
watcbfollness and on inability to sleep—at others great
.drowsiness, weariness, and disinclination to motion.
AT TIMES THE FACE Is flushed, with more or Ism
fever, especially at night or in the afternoon. Sometimes
violent colics, and wandering pains, fn various pans of the
body. Frequently there is a short hacking cough, with a
huskinees of the throat, and sometimes e very severe, dry,
and hard cough, which is often mistaken for consumption.
This cough often commences In the latter part of the nlftt
or early in the morning, and lasts for hours, frequently
producing nausea and vomiting. If there be any expecto
ration, it is a tough, ropy, tenacious phlegm; which ad
heres to everything It tenches. There are. also frequently
chronic pleurisy pains in various parts of the chest, which
. shift about from one part .of the breast or aide to the other.
Sometimes abscesses form in the liver, and 'pressing up
ward on tho lungs, produce constriction and cough, and
breaking, discharge their contents into the lungs, whence
U most bo ejected by expectoration, or’the patient Is de
stroyed. Some persons aro troubled witn spasmodic
twitches in various parts of the body, sometimes feintness
and sighing, difficulty of breathing; reading or. talking
producing weariness. THERE 18 A BEATING SENSA
