Fusebai. Obsequies of Col. Wm. G. Mubkay.
_We noticed last week that Col. Wm. G. Murray,
of Hollidaysburg, in command of the Eighty-fourth
Regiment of Pennsylvania Volunteers, had fallen
_ at the battle at Winchester, while gallantly lead
ing a charge, at the head of his regiment;, Im
mediately on receipt of the information of his
fall, preparations were made to have him brought
to Hollidaysbrng and interred by'fhe side of his
wife. Accordingly on Wednesday last iris corpse
was brought to Harrisburg, where his mother and
sisters reside, where it was Kept until 9 o’clock on
Friday morning following, when it was placed oh
board the Mail Train, and brought to this place
and transferred to the Branch Train. It was ac
companied by the mother, sister,’ and several near
relatives of the deceased; the Joint Legislative
Committee, consisting of Messrs. Reilly, SerrilF
and Kinsey, of the Senate, and Messts. Banks,
Barron and Blanchard, of the House; Captain
Bahaa, Lieuts.nO’Neal, Burtin and Nininger, Ser
. gcont Ramey and two privates, all of the 84th
regiment, together with a delegation of citizens
from Harrisburg, intimate personal friends of the |
As the train passed the Eagle Iron Works, at
the upper end of Harrisburg, all the employees of
that, establishment,, headed O. Hickok,
Esq., the proprietor, ranged themselves in a line
oh the edge of the pavement, with their un
covered, as a mark of respect to the passing re
mains of the gallant dead.
All along the rood crowds were congregated at
the depots, anxious to obtain a sight of the de
ceased, but they had to content themselves with
a sight of the coffin. *
Previous to the arrival of the train at this sta
tion, s great crowd of people hod collected at the
depot, under the belief that they would be gratified
with a sight of the remains of the man who had
reHectcd so much honor upon his country and the
county of bis adoption, whose death they so much
lamented and whoso memoiy they will ever revtfre.
But in tills they were disappointed. As a mark of
respect to the deceased, in fact all our citizens
wen; able fo pay, in consequence of the short time;
his remains were in our midst, the flags were
d&playcd at half-mast, and all the church bells!
and the slSbp bell on the Company’s works were!
tolled from the time the Mail Train entered the
town until the Branch Train passed out.
On the arrival of the train at Duncansville, the
coffin was taken out of the car and placed on if;
hearse. Carriages were also provided for the rela
tives and escort. The procession was then formed
hv Marshals Col. John Piper and J. J. Osterloli
as follows : Van tries Cornet Baud, Sergt, Ramey -
hearing American flag draped in mourning, hearse'
with privates from 84th regiment on either side -
, with muskets reversed, officers of regiment, car
riages with relatives and Legislative escort, citi
zens in carriages, citizens on foot. Thus formed,J
the procession moved into Hollidaysbutg, the band
playing appropriate music, and marched directly
io the residence of the father-in-law, of the de- i
ceased, John Dougherty, Esq., where the coffin ]
was removed from tl|e hearse to the house, and
opened in order to afford the children of the de
ceased an opportunity to gaze upon the features of
their departed sire. This was truly an (Sleeting
and impressive interview, and brought tears to the
eyes of every spectator. 1
After the relatives and immediate friends of the
family had obtained a sight of the corpse, the doors
of the residence were thrown open to gratify the
r turiosit - v ffie public with a similar sight, and
for nearly two hours there was almost a constant
line of people entering the house for this purpose.
All the flags we the town were dis
, played at half-mast and most of them heavily j
craped. On the front of one building,we noticed,
in frame and craped, an excellent likeness of the
deceased, taken by Proctor. All business places;
were closed as the cortege entered town, and every-.
thing went to show how ranch the deceased was,
respected by those who knew him best.
We take the following account of the burial of
CoL Murray from the Standard of this week;
“At ten o’clock on Saturday morning the coffin
containing the corpse, covered, with the American
flag, was carried on a bier to St. Mary’s Church
It was preceded by the band, military, &c., In pre
cisely the same order as the day before. High’
Mass, and a' most touching and eloquent discourse
being delivered over the dead body by Rev. John
VValsh, the procession returned in the same order
t° the Catholic Cemetery. The day proceeding,
on which the remains arrived here, was singularly
pleasant and beautiful, but on the ceremonies' at
die church being concluded, a furious snow storm
was raging from the east, but it did not diminish
m die least the feelings and interest of the thous
ands who thronged the streets and followed in the,
procession. His remains were deposited by the
side of his wife, whom he had followed thither but ;

The Masonic services at the grave were beauti

from the Master of the Lodge, a white lamb-skin
apron, the emblem of innocence and the badge of
a Mason, was deposited in the grave upon the ,
coffin, “reminding them of the universal domin
ion of death.” Each member then deposited a
sprig of evergreen, which commemorated their,
faith in the immortality of the spul. The grave
was then closed, a salute fired by the military, and
ail that was mortal of Capt. Gallaher was left to

Swuhg—Qua Neighbors.-— The first of April
brings more changes than that of season. New
scenes and associations are. presented for our ad
miration and enjoyment.' . Changes in business
and locations, and in financial and domestic affairs
are the necessary concomitants of the first of April.
Those who have prospered in business ndw remove
to more congenial residences and localities, while
those who have met a reverse on the wheel of for
tune accept less agreeable, domiciles and associa
tions. Those who do not move are all anxiety to
know what kind of neighbors they are about to re
ceive. Where are the old ones going, and who
are these just arrived? are the all absorbing ques
tions. Those who move in must not be annoyed
at the numerous questions, looks, observations and
nods of the people over the way. If the out-goers*'
were good neighbors, it is pleaaant to learn they
are not going far; if they are bad neighbors, it is
gratifying to know they are entirely beyond reach.
To know the precise character, or rather the re
ceived reputation of the incomers is of still more
importance. Good neighbors are not only an
honor, but they are a comfortable blessing daily
experienced. An effort, therefore, to learn the
“position” of a new neighlror cannot properly be
ternjed inquisitiveness; but is rather a legitimate
search after desirable information. Furthermore,
the windows in the house “just opposite” were
made to look put of, and it is entirely proper that j
they should be thus used. j
About this time sidewalks should be fixed up.—
It is anything but pleasant to have the water bub
bling up around your feet as yen walfif and occa
sionally have it squelch over your boot tops. It is
a lucky thing for the ladies that balmoral boots
are fashionable. Bad pavements denote careless
ness on the part of the owner, : and lead to the be
lief that he or she is equally careless in all other
respects. Fix up the sidewalks soon as possible.
Gas ekom I’etkoleum.— The Toronto Globe
gives an account of further experiments in the
manufacture of gas from crude petroleum, which
are being made with great apparent success in that
city. The dames of the coal oil gas were shown
to be larger and more brillhint than that of the
coal gas, although the burners were nil of equal
size and the pressure was stated to be the same in
both cases. One would hardly believe that gas of
such pure quality could be produced from coal oil,
and that, too, in its unrectified state. The opera
tion by result is achieved is very simple,
and: the machinery is not so elaborate and costly
as that required to make coal gas. It is also said
that it is manufactured at a saving of 75 per cent.
Accident. —On Friday last, a little boy, about
three years old, son of Mr. John Smith, who lives
on the farm adjoining West Ward, came near
losing two of his fingers in this wise: He and an
elder brother were hacking around the wop<J-pile
with a hatchet, and the younger, in attempting to
pull a stick front off the chopping-block, just as the
elder made a stroke upon it, placed his fingers
where the stroke fell, and had the two middle
fingers of his left band cut almost oft’, midway be
tween the first and second joints. His father
brought him to Dr, Calderwopd’s office, where his
wounds were dressed. The Dr. thinks one of the
fingers must come off, find probably both.
Fntesu Fish. —Fresh fish are a luxury and de
cidedly palatable about this time, when almost
every one has had a surfeit of salt beef and pork.
Among the best fresh fish we have yet sampled is
the haddock, a species which come from “ away
down east.” ; They are received by express, from
Boston, by our townsman, Air. Bobison, whose
market honse is opposite Hilcman’s store. They
are delicious when rightly served up, and are really
as cheap as beef. Mr. K. retails them at seven
cents per pound. Call and get one, and don’t
think yon are buying a lot-.of bones. : Haddock
have no more bones than a catfish.
The Lumber ’ Business.—From the Rafts
man's Journal we learn that the amount of lumber
shipped and floated from Clearflcld county this
season will not amount to more than orie-half that
of previous years. This we presume will be the
case in all parts of. the lumbering region, and con
sequently lumber will advance in price. A great
amount of lumber will be required for building
shijM and gunboats, and other army purposes.—
There will also be as much building done through
out the country as heretofore, We would advise
all our citizens who contemplate building this sea
son, to lay in their supply of lumber as early as
possible. ' -

days since and happening to mect the editor of the

Rats.—A correspondent of Gardener’s Monthly,
says: “I tried■ the effect of introducing into the
entrance of their holes, runs or hiding place, a
small piece of chlorine of lime, or bleaching pow
der, wrapped in calico, and stuffed into the en
trance boles, and thrown loose by the spoonful into
the drain from the house. This drove them awav
for a twelve month, when they returned to it.—
, The . v w ere again treated in the same manner, with
like effect. The cure was most complete. I pre
snme it was the chlorine gas Which did not agree
with their olfactories."
It Won't Take.—The editor of the Whig is
trying to put mischief in the head of a candidate
on this side of the county, by insinuating that the
gentleman who haunts the Whig man in his sleep,
is secretly Working against the said candidate.—
That’s one of your old dodges, Johnny, but. it don’t
take this time. That dodge is played out. You
must go farther from home when you wish to make
capital in this manner. Bosh !

Tax- on Tonnage.
From the Harrisburg Patriot and Union, of Sat
urday last, we copy tlie following :
The following joint resolutions upon the subject
of a uniform tax upon tonnage were introduced
into the Senate yesterday:
“ Resolved, That our Senators in Congress be
instructed and our Representatives requested to
favor a uniform tax upon tonnage as one of the
provisions of the general tax bill.
“That if Congress shall fail to impose a general
tax upon tonnage, the Commissioners to revise the
tax laws of this State be requested to consider the
expediency of imposing a uniform tax upon the
tonnage of this State, to be applied exclusively to
the liquidation of any debt heretofore contracted or
hereafter to be contracted for the defence of tins
State or the maintenance of, the National Union,
such taxes to be so imposed as to afford every just
discrimination in favor of Pennsylvania trade and
interests ; and said Commissioners to report on the
some to the next Legislature by bill or other
The propositions contained in these resolutions
commend themselves on account of their manifest
fairness. The first proposition, it will be observed,
recommends .that the General Government should
impose a uniform' tax upon tonnage. The second
proposition contemplates the imposition of such a
tax by the State In case the Federal Government
refuses to do so. The resolution proposes to treat
all railroads and transportation companies in the
State alike, without discriminating either for or
against any—notselecting one to bear all the bur
den of taxation and allowing all the rest to go
One of the strongest arguments against the ton
nage tax upon the Pennsylvania railroad as it ex
isted prior to the commutation act of last session is,
that it was a .partial and invidious discrimination
against the greatest thoroughfare for trade and
travel in the State. If tire policy of the State had
been to collect revenue from trade and travel upon
all the railroads in did Commonwealth, there
would have been'no propriety in exempting the
Pennsylvania company, or any other, from such
-imposition; but as the policy of the State was just
the reverse of this, it looked like narrow prejudice,
or unjust discrimination, to select this road to bear
all the burden of taxation, which should justly
have been distributed among the various compa
nies incorporated by the State.
In ordinary times a tax upon tonnage cannot be
justified, but when public necessity demands ex
traofdinaty sources of revenue, and when no in
terest or class in the Commonwealth ought to es
cape its just share of taxation, the railroad and
transporting companies are fairly liable to. the pay
ment of tonnage duties. Both the friends and the
enemies of the tax on the Pennsylvania railroad
can meet on this common ground, and wo trust
that the Legislature will be induced to give a fa
vorable consideration to this proposition.

As Ingenious Yankee.—A few days ago the
government detectives found that an ingenious
Yankee was printing a large amount of Rebel
Treasury notes, of different amounts, mostlyi how
ever, of large denominations. They arranged a
time and made a descent upod the “ Yank,’i when
he was surrounded by oil his confederates, papers,
&c. -He seemed surprised at the appearance of the
officers, but quietly went with them. He said he
was engaged in crippling the UeM Treasury and
thought it very strange 1 he should be molested, as
he thought that was . their “ weakest point.”
“How is this?” asked the astonished officer.
“You see,” said the “Yank,” these are better than
the orignal article; the originals are worthless;
they are unauthorised by law.; bo I am not coun
terfeiting. I have not attempted to pass them for
money, and really cannot see : how I am doing
wrong.” “Ah!” said the detective, “of course
you were not going to pass them; but von are going
to furnish them to the enemy." The “Yank"
then owned up that ho was sending them dorwn to
flood the South, and destroy the confidence of the
people, when they suddenly found the whole coun
try flooded with a spurious issue, and their only
circulation rendered worthless. An investigation
showed that he had really sent several hundred
thousand dollars, through the South, via Tennes
see, and sold them at from thirty to fifty cents on
the dollar. The case was duly reported to Secre
tary Seward, the whole apparatus seized, and the
man allowed to go on his parole for the present.—

Concession op the Pittsburgh Mortars.—
A Pittsburgher on one of the mortar boats on the

concussjon cooked by the discharge of the mortars,
I will tell yon the effect ‘it had on some things of
my own. I had all my clothes in a strong box,
placed in the hold of die mortar-boat. After two
or three discharges of the mortar, the box was
shattered to pieces and my clothes scattered over
the hold. It oven broke the straps of my knap
sack, and scattered the contents. My cap was
blown overboard and lost. The windows of a tug
boat a quarter of a mile distant were broken.—
As for the effect on myself, it made me almost as

$3“ In Warren Coiinty, New York, there lives a
man upwards of 50 years old who never saw a
canal boot, steamboat or rail car; never rode in
a stage coach, never was but 16 miles from home,

that price only five per cent, advance on cost.
2d, That by doing a strictly cash business he
can and. does sell cheaper than any house which
does a credit,; because, Ist, parties buying at a
credit store, even though they pay cash for theff
purchases,, pay. credit prices, for the reason; that
the proprietors of credit stores are afraid to sell to
cash customers at lower figures than they do to
their credit customers, lest their credit customers
should find it out and withdraw their patronage;
and, because 2d, by selling for cash only he! gets
no bad accounts on his books and loses no money)
consequently he is not compelled to tax paying
customers to make up his losses on non-paying
ones. __ : '
