STKjawo Flowers.—What! —stealing flowers!
' that's agreat subject for a local item,
b „i wc can’t help it, although it does speak bad: for
|tl(! morals of some of our citizens. It is our duty.
s , public journalists, to show up even- secret sys
of vice, to the best of our ability, in order that
u r readers may be on their guard, and if it inter
feres in an. v wa y> 'vith the iUegal and shameful
transactions of these floral thieves, or any other
ml of audacious viUians, the best thing Urey can
a „ is to turn their attention to some more honora-
We means of gratifying their desires. The prac
|ife of entering front yards and gardens for the
nose 0 f stealing flowers, was commenced in.
ibis place last Fall, and it has been quite exten
sively renewed this Spring. Infect, it is becoming
a serious evil, for even the Cemetery, that sacred
resting-place of our' beloved dead, is not exempt
frum the unhallowed depredations of these heaveii
daring, hell-deserving vilUaus and viUia»e*se».—
What!—do females stoop to such meanness?—
[Such, we are sorry to say, is the feet, as we have
ton informed by one of our most respectable citi
zens. who, only a few nights, ago,'discovered *
couple of petticoats getting over his fence in a
style that would have been creditable to a pair of
pantaloons in pursuit of a rabbit. Opr worthy
friend naturally Wondered. “ what’s up ?” But, on
visiting his flower-bed, in the morning, he discov
ered that his beautiful dahlias were "up” by the
roots, and had disappeared with the brazcn-feced
heroines of the previous night! But this is not
the onlv instance of this contemptible petty (or
ptlticoat) larceny that has come to onr knowledge.
Mutilated flower-beds and missing plants are get
ting to be quite common; and, as we have before
intimated, it is almost useless to plant rare flowers
in the Cemetery, where there is no living hand to
arrest these shameless, heartless wretches, in their
nocturnal incursions. Now, wiiat is to be done?
Powder and balls are too good for them; and besides,
no good citizen likes to take the law in bis own hands
and turn executioner “ on his ow'd hook,” although
it may be done, if forbearance ceases to be a vir
tue. But wc have pointed out the evil, and it is
lor the proper authorities to apply the remedy', ■
S.ui Accident. —On Saturday last, as Mr.
Henry W’onderly, one of the Hail Road Company’s
clerks in the yard at this place, was attempting to
get on a freight train in motion, at the lower end
of the yard, for the purpose of riding to the npper
end, where the duties of hisyjffice called him at that
time, when he slipped and fell with his legs across
the track, in front of the cars, which, some say,
passed directly over them, from the feet to the
knees. Others say that the unfortunate man’s.in
juries were caused by the "break,” which caiigbt
his legs and shoved them along upon the track.—
Which of these stories is correct, we do not know;
but 1 we do know that his logs, from the knees down,
were most. horribly crushed and mangled. The
jKwr fellow was carried, on a board, to the resi
dence of Mr. Lyon, on Annie street, where he
and his wife were boarding. A physician was im
mediately called and the wounds of the sufferer
dressed, as well as the bruised and shattered con
dition of the limbs wonld admit. He then seemed
to rest easy, except whcn,ob!iged to cod|h or move
his body in any way, which caused severe pain.—
lie lay in this condition until Monday night, when
it was determined to amputate tire left leg, which
had sustained the most serious injury. The oper
atiou was accordingly performed, but the unfortu
nate young man did not long survive it. He died
the same night, and his remains were conveyer! to
their last resting 7 place on Wednesday morning.
Another solemn warning to employees on the
road, and also to persons crossing the yard between
the shops, where engines and cars are almost con
tinually passing up and down.
The Vlsth Regiment,.P. V.—This regiment,
commanded by Col. Patterson, is to be removed
from Camden, N. J., to Camp Curtin, with the
view of completing its organization by the addition
of three companies. Capt. Jaa. Murray, hasbeen
authorized, by Curtin, to recruit one of
these companies in Blair and Cambria counties.—
lie has ahead/ a bilge number enrolled, and will,
in a few days, send forward his men. Capt. Mur
ray is recognized os a first class officer. He com
manded a company from Cambria county, (Cam
bria Guards,) in the Mexican war, and the members
of that company who knew -him well, speak of him
in the most flattering terms. Capt. Murray Was
First Lieutenant of the “ Silver Grays.”
There are a number of patriotic young men. still
in this town and vicinity-who are anxious to-enter
the volunteer service, and this new company and
regiment presents to them a splendid opportunity.
By calling on Geo. Shank, who is authorized to
receive recruits for Capt. Murray’s company, they
will receive any information which they may de
sire. “Roll in,” young men, for this is the only
regiment that will be accepted from Pennsylvania
for the present, and, perhaps during the war.!
Keeping Fowls.—Everybody likes to keep
p>uUry; it is so nice to have a good fat “ rooster”
to kill when yon get tired of pork and beef ; and
it is also very handy to have frisk eggs with which
to clear your coffee; yet everybody in town does
not keep fowls. Why ? because they are of a wan-,
•iering nature and are not always inclined to stay
°n their own premises.: They are very apt to play
sad havoc with neighboring gardens, and they do
.not thrive so well when kept shut up. Sowe folks,
however, are not so conscientious; they will keep
fowls, no matter whose garden they fatten in. ; We

Stehlcy’s shoe shop, on Virginia street, and car
ried off three skins of Morocco leather and all of
Mr. Stehley’s shoemaking tools. The shutters of
the shop were fastened by a-bolt on th° inside, but
the thief cut a bole in the shutter near the bolt,
which he was then enabled to raise with his finger.
After getting the shutter open, he very skillfully
took out a pane of glass,: reached his hand in and
removed the fastening which held the window
down. He then had everything his own way.—
Nothing remained for him but to crawl in, pack
up the “kit” and “retreat” which he is supposed
to have done a la rebels, “in good order,” but on
a “ double quick.”

he fought like a tiger. He is rapidly recovering
from the effects of his wound, and seems to be just
as full of fun as in former days. We have known
Hiram from his youth up, and if we sympathized
with the “seefeh,” we would advise them to keep

The Great Victory before Bichmond.
THE BATTLE ON SATURDAY.
Headquarters Gun. McClellan’s Army, 1
June 2, r. m.>
Two days of the battle at Richmond have been
fought, on both of which occasions our troops have
bccti victorious, with a heavy loss on both sides.
The battle was opened by the enemy making an
attack on Casey's division, which was encamped
near Seven Pines, ’on the turnpike leading over
Bottom Bridge, and within seven miles of Bich
The attack was made at about I o'clock on Sat
urday afternoon, by Gcfi. Hill’s Division, compos
ed of five rebel brigades, the troops being, in the
most part, from Virginia, South Carolina and
The fight here was disastrous. Gen. Casey’s
troops were forced to retire > before superior num
bers, leaving all their camp equipage and two bat
teries on the field.
Colonel Baily, in endeavoring to save his bat
tery, was killed. :
General Heintaelman, on ascertaining the result,
ordered forward a portion of the divisions of Gens.
Kearney and Hooker to regain the day.
Gen. Kearney’s men, o.n being brought into ac
tion, charged with the bayonet, driving the rebels
before them like sheep, and regaining all the lost
gronnd; but after proceeding half a mile night
came on, and the operations were brought to a
Gen. Sumner's two divisions, under Generals
Sedgwick and Bichardson, crossed the Chickahom
iny at about 3 o’clock on Saturday afternoon,
taking a position on Gen. Heintzelman's right.—
Here they encountered Generals Longstreet’s,
Rains’ and Hughes' divisions—the flower of the
rebel army. The fighting was desperate, every
foot of ground being hotly contested, but our sol
diers were top much for them.
The enemy would stand manfully at a distance
of sixty yards and be fired at, but they were afraid
of the bayonet, and in every instance that oar men
charged they were victorious.
These two divisions did nobly, driving the rebels
at every point, until dark. The enemy’s loss here
was veiy heavy, many of them being killed by the
Gen. Pettigrew, of South Carolina, was taken
We have about five hundred prisoners, among
whom are several prominent offices.
THE BATTLE ON SUNDAY
On Sunday, os soon as it was daylight, the fight
by Gen. Sumner with marked suc
cess, lasting nearly the whole day.
Gen. Heintzelman on Sunday morning retook
the gronnd lost the day before by Gen. Casey.
Our loss in the two days engagement in killed
and wounded will amount to about three thousand.
A great! number arc missing, who will probably
return, having strayed away.
All hf the enemy’s killed; and most of his wounded
fell into our hands.
The country in which the battle was fought is
swampy with thick underbrush. Most of the fight
ing was in the woods.
Owing to die nature ,of die ground very little
artillery was used.
Both balloons were up nearly all day yesterday.
All the troops left Richmond and marched out
in the direction of the battle-field.
The rairoad has been of inestimable service to
us, the cars running within a mile and a half of
the battle-field, bringing forward ammunition and
The wounded were immediately put aboard the
cars, and sent to the White House.
Gen. McClellan arrived on the battle-field on
Saturday evening, where he has remained ever
since, directing all the movements in person. His
presence among the troops had a great effect.
Four separate charges with the bayonet were
made daring yesterday. In one instance the en
emv were driven a mile, during which 173 were
killed by the bayonet alone.
Lient. Washington, an aid to Gen. Joe Johnson,
was taken prisoner.
The enemy’s dead left on the field amounts to
Gen. Howard was wounded twice in the arm.
Col. Miller, of the 81st Penn’a, and Col. Rip
pey of Pittsburgh #ere killed.
Col. Campbell of Fa., was wounded in the thigh.
' To the Public !—An experience of six months
has fully convinced me that the cash system is
the best, both for merchant and consumer. It ena
bles the merchant to sell at one-half less profit
and make more clear money, with less trouble than
he can by selling on credit; and the reason is ob
vious—he gets the money down for everything he
wants to sell, and /has the use of it immediately.—
The consumer also, saves by buying for cash, be
cause he gets his merchandise at from 25 to 50 per
cent, below what he would have to pay if he bought
on credit, or even if he bought at a store which
sells on credit. The credit business always loses a
certain per centage, which must be made up from
cash or prompt monthly payers.
I am determined to. do nothing but a CASH
BUSINESS, and have but ONE •PRICE for my
