Willi uiu iijiiiuiiiiuieiii. itymoncii.
Ol'll heart beats free since wc have
learned that our Radical friend is "satis
lied with tho appointment." The Sen
ate, in turning out the Editor of the
Republican and in confirming the Edi
tor of tho Column! AX showed due IIK
crimination founded on merit.
It would seem also, that Mercur's
celebrated speech, (listened to by fifteen
sleepy members) failed to have any
effect on tho Senate, ns they confirm
such men as Chtrandorat Danville, anil
Pursel and Clark in llloomsburg with
out any compunctions of conscience.
Democratic Literati-nr. We de
sire again to urgo upon our democratic
fellow citizens everywhere tho prime
importance of spreading democratic
newspapers anil books. Xowistbe time
tobegin tho good work. Everv man who
does not take a paper should subscribe
for one, and see that his neighbor gets
ono also. Tho salvation of the country
depends upon our success.
The 'Republicans support their papers
very liberally. Reside that thoy have
milte a number of monthly magazines
In their service. Tho circulation of our
newspnpers should bo doubled in every
place. Head and circulate, should be
our watchword. 'Tls not In mortal to
command success, but surely wo may
deserve It by our labor and faithfulness.
Work, friends, work alone Is the sure
road to success.
Evr.uv public man, and every man
lidding a public position is liable to the
comments and criticisms of the pres.
Wo would not willfully wrong even a
a political opponent, much less a per
son in tho private walks of life. A
short tlpio since wo published a "local"
reflecting on the lato assessor ror "ap
proving tho accounts of a subordinate
wlien ho Know them to uo laise."
Wo inado that statement, as wo wero
warranted In doing at tho time, from
a Knowledge of tho following facts :
Last summer tho assessor mid one of
his assistants went to Massachusetts
(tho tlmo they could not find Johnson
Itonublicnns) and spent several daysi
Tho accounts of that assistant bhow that
ho charged tho Government or the
time when he. wa abtent on private bitsl
nesi. Wo havo slnco be.cn Informed that
ho employed others to perform
his work while absent, and tho
Commissioner of Internal Revenue al
lowed him to elmrgefor full time. This,
of course, exonerates tho n-sistant from
allblamo; and had ho filed a copy of
the letter from' tho Commissioner, tills
question would not have been raised.
Whether tho CammMoner had a
right to declilo thus, Is n question' wo
lenvo for our readers.
Tin: Old Strix P6sT.-Our readers
111114 remember tho old sign that for n
piarter of n century has swung In front
of the Exchange, and guided tho "wea
ry traveller on his way" (Into the Ho
tel.) It has gone tho way of all llesh.
Tho vagabond worms, envious of Its
fame nnil stability, laid hold of Its found.
nt'on, nnd with the nld of a high wind
accomplished its downfall j yet, ltko n
sinking ship after a severe battle it went
down with colors flying, nnd strango to
say, without breaking a glass In the old
lantern that hung on it. Cnslow had
his revenge. The-borors wero captured
without lo, and made glorious food for
thollshes, and they In turn were eaten by
man, showing that "It U an 111 wind that
blows nobody good."
Many arc tho changes since tho old
sign was erected and becamo "tho pride
of tho village." Our nation has passed
through two wars, acquired millions
of mile- of territory, and nearly doub
led in population and States. It has al
so stood to see our Union broken, and
In one-third of tho States tho people
deprived of representation in the gov
ernment they helped to form, no trial
byjury, but life, reputation and prop
erty the subject of military dcpotlstn,
nnd tho leading party of tho country
determined to deprive tho whites of all
political rights, and to place them in
the hands of the negroes, who have
ut emerged from slavery.
When that old sign post was new,
railroads and telegraphs had not reached
our county, and the vignctto repre
senting tho assortment of mails from
an old carpet bag, took us in memory
back to the days of coaches and packets.
Iiloomsburg itself has grown so rapidly
that the sign was almost a stranger in a
strange place. Furnaces, a Court House,
Churches, a Dank, Seminary, nil have
sprung up, and even the old Exchange
is so altered that the sign seemed an out
cast or poor relation. It did well to
bow to tho march of improvement, for
it was a tiling of the past, its mission
was ended, and by this wise generation
deemed a nuisance. "Peace to its
A "Youths' History or thi: lati:
war," lias been placed on our table. It
has been written by It. G. Horton, of
the firm of Van Evrle, Horton it Co.,
editors of the New York Day-Hook.
We have not had time to examine the
work, and therefore can say but little
in regard to its literary excellence or as
to its accuracy, but having been issued
by a Democratic firm, its views of the
objects nnd purposes of the war would
be given from a Democratic stand point,
and the work would be free from tho
misrepresentations and slanders of our
party, which constitutes tho stock in
trade of many of tho hUtoric of the
war. Our Radical opponents ilKtil their
poi-oiiousiloctrinesinto the minds of our
youth by means of school-books, hito
ries, magazines, pictorials, etc., and our
people have patronized them because
they had no other fountain at which to
drink. For tills reason we are glad to
recommend Mr. Horton's book to our
While giving our soldiers credit for
the manly devotion with which they
fought under "the old flag" for "the
Constitution nnd the 1,'niou," he prop
erly points out the designs of the Radi
cals and how they perverted the objects
of the war.
The work has numerous illustrations,
and agents are now in the county, can-viis-ing
fur it. Others are wanted. For
particulars inquire of the head agent
for the district, who can be found on

POPE'S VIltfllXIA CAMPAIGN.
On tho eighth our Division moved bo
yond Culpepper, and halted In lino of
battle about onomlle from there. Stone
wall Jackson, after rendering such effi
cient service to tho Confederate army on
tho Peninsula during tho "Seven davs
light," nail returned to his old fighting
grounds, considerably reinforced, nnd
was reported to bo crossing the Rani
dan for the purpose of attacking us, and
rope decided to give him battle In the
vicinity of Culpepper. The following
day, (Saturday), wo took up our posi
tion on n favoring ridge, measured dis
tances to Insure tho success of our nr
tlllery, and mado tho usual preparations
for a pitched battle, savo throwing up
entrenchments ; which would have
seemed cowardly at that stage of tho
war. Early In tho forenoon some slight
firing was heard in front, but it excited
no particular attention, as wo knew It
iad been determined to fight a defen
sive battle on the ground then occupied
by us. Rank's Corps was In our front,
numbering about fiOOO men, but wo be
llovcd his Intention was simply to do-
laythe enemy In tho neighborhood of
Cedar Run, until King's Division could
irrlvo from I redcricksburg, and Slgcl's
Corps from the Valley. Ranks, how
ever, received on order from Col. Mar
shall, ono of Popo's aids, as follows :
"Gen. Ranks will movo to the front
immediately, assume command of all
tho forces In tho front, deploy his skir
mishers if tho enemy approaches and
attack him immediately as soon ns ho
approaches, and bo ro-enforccd from
here." On this order Rank's Justifies
himself for attacking the enemy in su
perior numbers and in a strong position.
Pope denies having given it, but his
known lack of veracity is against him.
Certain it is that Ranks pushed his com
mand across Cedar Run, a strong defen
sive position, against an enemy who
held Cedar (or Slaughter's) Mountain
with his infantry somo 20,000 in num
bcr, among the wooded knolls below.
About five o'clock in tho evening the
engagement began by Crawford's send
ing forward a regiment to feci tho en
emy. The artillery had been at work
for an hour or two previously, but ours
could not get sulllciont elevation to
reach the batteries onthomountain. The
enemy's infantry were massed on our
right, and there the battlo soon raged
in nil its fury. The gallant Knipo
led tho Forty-Sixth thrco times across n
plain in tho faceofa hot Arc In frontand
flank, anil then fell covered with
wounds. Donnelly fell at tho head of
the Twenty-Eighth .New York; General
Princo nnd a portion of Ills command
wero captured, and Geary got ascratch,
which caused him to leave the field
Our troops fought bravejy, but bad gen
eralship, superior numbers, positional!
wero against us, and victory was hope
ess, Allcruoingall mat mortaiscouiu
thceolumnsro-crossod Cedar Run in con
fusion, leaving the dead nnd wounded
on tho field. Our loss was about 1S00.
As soon as l'opo and M'Dowell became
convinced that thoaction in our front
was general, our Division was urged
timidly forward. Wc met crowds of
stragglers, and many who wero slightly
wounded, whoio exaggerations in re
gard to the engagement had anything
but a soothing elfcct upon our mind
and especially upon the Regiments
which had never been in action. On
Hearing Cedar Hun evidences of panic
wero plainly visible. Ambulances,
wagons, .straggling masses of troops
rushed towards Culpepper, and even
Rntterics broke through our lines, and
when in a place of safety courageously
unlimbercd and threw some badly
aimed shell into our midst. It was
now dark, and It becamo necessary to
form a new line, behind which Rank's
Corns could rally, and strive to hold
the enemy in check until Sigel's Corp
anil-King's Division could arrive. Gen.
Pope knew nothing nbout the ground
or the position of tho troops, and tho
only man who seemed to poscss his wits
was M'Dowell, who quietly posted tlio

This movement in Itself was alarming,
hut added to that was tho fact that wo

pickets nor skirmish lino In our Jront.
To prevent surprlso wo picketed our
front with nrtlllerymen.
In tho meantime Hall's Maino Hal

got Into action. Tho curves of flro de

furnished a finer sight In pyrotechnics
than many of us had over before seen.
The enemy's artillery was doing us
much damage, nnd neither Hall's rifled

on account of nn Intervening knoll.
Soon however, the latter placed In bat

6. Tho structure of the neam Is snch that, though
It be cut or broken at Intervals of only a few
stltchea, It will neither open, run, nor ravel, but
remain firm and durable.
. Unlike other machines, these Msten both
ends of the acnm by their own operation.
8. With these machines, while Ulc Is used upon
the right or face sldo of tho seam, cotton may be
used upon the other sldo without lessening the
strength or durability of the seam. This can be
done on no other machine, nnd Is a great saving
upon alt articles stltehed or made up with Rllk.
9. TheNC machines, In addition to their superior
merit as Instruments for sewing, by a change of
adjustment, easily learned nnd practised, execute
the moirt beautiful and permnneut embroidery

Tlie lands held by this Company, cousInI of
VOVll HUXDltlCD AXI) KOItTY-
and sixty-four perches, of carefully selected land
lying southwest of Wllkes-Ilarre, Luzerne coua
ty, Pa.. In the western part of tlio Greal NorthMn
or Wyoming Coal llasin.
A very careful and thorounli examiiiatlon re
cently made has proven these (for tho above)
lands to ho the embodiment of n vast amount of
tlie very licst quality of nnlhraelto coal, having
every facility that could bo desired for trans
portation In all directions. The above tract l
crossed by a (rood road, and also directly In
front, and Joining nro the Lackawanna .t Blooms
burn railroad, and the Wyoming cnnal? thus af
fording the very best advantage of a carrying road
and canal running to tlie Mry mouth of the
mines without expense to tho company.
Tlio measurement of the ilirrerent beds oreams
nlrcady developed was carefully obtained nnd
ndtled together: the thickness of these Reams,
Including the celebrated "lied Ash,'' "Huck Moun
tain," or "Grand Tunnel" vein, is thirty-one nud
a half feet, (.HJl, every cubic yard of which will
yield a ton, giving a large amount of the best
finality of coal.
Tho local Un Is such thai all the veins may ba
cut nnd worked tothe greatest posslbleadvantagu
above water level, and at much less cxpenso than
can bo done from colleries operating below water
The co.il can be brought to tho surface through
drifts or tunnels which drain tho water from Um
mines nnd saves tho hoisting of the coal. So the
eligibility of those lands for cheap mining Is un
questionable. Very lately tho "Grand Tunnel"
or "lted Ash" vein has teeen opened, nnd is now
producing ns fine n quality of coal as has ever
been produced In tlio nnthrnclto regions. Th
breaker now In operation Is capable of preparing
from.l.V) to ax) tons per day. Tho surface cuntalns
nn abundant supply of woodnndtlmber very viO-
uablo for mining purimses, which gives the tract
the advantage of many othor cool liuijj. Tho
fact Ihat almost all valuable coat lands are being
rapidly taken up by heavy capitalists or largecoc
Derations, shows Hint they must steadily and
greatly rise In Ihe ninrkct value, while with the
immense nnd constantly Inerenslnjt demand for
this coal, anil the IUIIrorul and North llraueh ca
nal, pissing by tlio mouths of tho mines, through
the Great Iron making districts of Iiloomsburg,
Danville, Dunennnon, Hnrrlsburg, Mlddlotown,
Marietta, and Columbia, to tide-water nt llayro
do Grace, ono can scarcely conceive of a mors
profitable or permanent source of wealth than
may be found In lands like these.
In order toe able to open their works on a
more extensive plan, this company has placed a
portion of their capital stock In market on the
following terms: Any person taking one or more
shares of stock at
TEX DOLLARS EACH,
will he entitled annually to a ton of coal at et
at tlio mine per share, and any stockholders
not m:cr.iviNO Tim coal
as aforesaid, to be credited on Ihe books of the
Company, with the difference betwscn theoost
nnd selllngprlce for each share, to bo paid lx-fora
n dividend shall be declared.
