Once bIio said to ber mamma. mamma, won't it be nice when wo all get where there is no pain ?" Tho remark hav- ing been made "I hope, Maggie, you will soon bo out again," alio replied, "no, will not get well," and after a moment ad ded, ''it will be a long limo if I do," and then in answer to the Inquiry "do you love Jesus ?" she clasped her hands together ns if in prnyer, and said, with a smile, "yes. I do, and he loves me." A day or so before she died, she repeated a part of the twenty, third Psalm, "Yea, though I walk through tho valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil."

The wagon has just been re paired, and is as good as ever, and I hope it will have occasion to join the parade in 1838. J. C. Tkacb. Hand ainttct'H. n appeal was made to the public by the Bloomsburg Band, through the medium of circulars, on election dny. As it shows the present condition ot the finances of tho band wc reprint the circular below as fal lows : The Bloomsburg Band takes this method of calling the attention of tho citizens nnd tax payers of Bloomsburg to tho statement glveu below as being tha sum necessary to pay-annual expenses of the Band. A part of this amount has been paid from year to year by proceeds of public entertainments given by the Band, the balance being con tributed from the private purses of the members individually. Various ways have been adopted to raise funds to pay current expenses by voluntary coutrlbutions, Jtc, but failed to fulfill the purpose, for the rea son that only n very small portion of tho amount subscribed being paid into the treasury of tho band. We now propose to ask assistance from the citizens in the way of an appropriation from the Town Treas ury, and In return for such appropriation the Bloomsburg Band arc willing to enter Into an agreement with the town authori ties to furnish the citizens music free of charge for all public demonstrations in tho Town of B oomsburg, (political meetings, &c, excepted.) To ascertain if a majority of tho citizens favor the plan It h proposed to put it to u popular vote at the annual town election, Feb. 17th, 1835. Tho state ment showing the amount necessary to pay annual expenses of the Band, aro viz i For Leader, $150.00 " Hall Kent, C5.00 " Light and Fuel, 15 00 " Music and Incidental Expenses, 25.00 Total $255.00 This does not include the wear and tear of instruments and uniforms If tho citi zens will appropriate $100.00 of this amount In quarterly payments the Band will raise and pay the balance, and furnish music free, as stated above. The amount asked for would average about 10 cents for each voter. Unless some such arrange ments can bo mado with thu citizens wo cannot guarantee that thu organization can bo maintained another season. Tho majo. rity of the membcr are too poor to give the amount usually contributed by them. Hoping you will give this matter duo consideration, nnd vote for an appro priation, we remain, Respectfully, Rixjomsbtbo Band. The proposition to get nn appropriation from the town treasury failed, ns only 100 votes were cast for tho appropriation. This failure, however, Is no loss to tho Band, as tho council would have no au. thorlty to mako an appropriation, oven though a majority of tho people voted for it. But tho action of tho bund shows that In a town the size of Bloomsburg, such an organization cannot bo maintained without outside assistance There are very few occasions during the year when tho band receives pay for Its services, and the amount thus earned Is not sufficient to pay current expenses. If the Bloomsburg Cor net Band is to bo maintained It Is evident that tome assistance, by subscription or otherwise must be rendered by the citi zens. David Winner offers himself at crier at vendues.

Valentine Day has just passed us, with its usual amount of low, vulgar and ob sceac daubs, and who can tell the amount of personal enmity nnd spite that has given vent to itself in this way. And yet wo claim to be Christians. Can not there bo something done with a certain class of would-be young gentlemen ana boys In this town ? A few years ago it was said that it was little better than a lawless mob. If so then, what Is it now ? What can be done to prevent it? Somo say, Incorporate. But will that help us to a better state of things, If so, let us have It at once. Wo heard It stated last week that the legislature is to givo us a special law. It that 1 tho case, wo will not get ono yet for awhile, at tho rate they pass laws. Mr. J. 11. Shuman has his new double house about ready for occupancy. Why Is it that when we wish to have work done we must send to other places to get men, when wo have just as good me. chanlcs at home. But it seems such Is thu case, and yet you hear thoso very parties say "palronizo your own town." Just so, but then what is the use of so many pre- tensions to light and so littlo doing right. Mr, Thomas E. Harder's benefit hop has been postponed to March 23. Dr. J. H. Vnstlno proposes erecting sev. eral dwellings In tho near future. Hon. F. L.

Experiments made on the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad have demonstrated the possibility of maintain ing telegraphic communications with mov ing trains.

Tho plan is to lay a wire between thu trucks and the moving train to curry another wlro below the car axles and within a foot or less of tho ground wire, Whether the new plan will come Into gencinl use Is some what doubtful on the score of economy, ns It will require un operator on eacli train In addition to those ulready required nt tho stations. The success of the experiment, however, shows thnt thero ure practically uo limits to the possibilities of the tele, graphic Invention. MARRIAGES. HARTSIAN KNOUSE.
