FEELING AT THE AUSTRIAN HEAD QUA.R
TERS.-A correspondent Of the London /Lincs
gives the following accountuf the manner in
which the Austrian troops spend their even
ings at bead quarters. The letter is dated
Garlasco, May 25th :
Those who think the Austrian 'troops are
dispirited or that any of them, are wavering
in their allegiance, are Much •mistaken.—
Nothing can exceed the spirits- of all, and the
common 'enemy has 'caused all eternal dis
likes to cease, at.all events for .the moment.
One battalion bivouacks in the square of this
town. ,These; Men I have observed attentive
ly, and for the instruction of those who think
the Austrian troops..barbariane,' tell you
how they .pass their eveniniS., Abwit ,five
o'clock they , all' crowd round the band, whiCh
is led by Farbach, the well-known Viennese'
composer, and takes the - greatest delight .in
listening to the music. During the. intervals
of the instrumental music, parties of twenty
or thirty of -these so-called savages sing in a
manner which I have not yet had the pleas
ure to - hear equalled in France or England.
Tyrolese songs follow 'Viennese,- and then'
sometimes the band strikes up some Hunga
rian tune, and in an instant a space is cleared,'
and every Hungarian in the crowd joins in
the dance ;- or .-Farbach gives one of his. ex=
qulstte waltzek.and 'a hundred Germans sieze
the opportunity, of enjoying - their favorite
dance. Hairy fellows, in thick shoes and
greatcoats, arc their only. available partners
to be seen ; but still it is very pleasant to see
these men amusing themselves in so refined
a manner. I have even seen ono man moun
ted on a chair, reciting poetry to an attentive
crowd. The Italians stare at all this.
J. D. CAMPBELL, Secretary
Remarkable Race by Railroad---Stakes
•- One clay last week, as the eastward bound
express train reached Laport, Incl., a passen
ger stepped off while the engine was being
replenished with - Wood and water, and
walked hack and forth on the platform, and
continued to walk until the whistle sounded.
The other passengers got on board and the
train passed off, but the gentleman still
walked on. , A. few minutes after the train
had gone, a station . man saw the pedestri
an, and, going up to him, asked in a surpriSed,
" What the—are you doing here ?"
. The man started, 'opened his eyes,, and
looked around bewildered. The fact was,
he had been fatigued, - and dropped asleep
while walking. Rousing himself, he asked :,
• " Why I , where am I?" -
" Where 'are you ? At Laport." -
" Where's the train I came in ?"
"'That left ten minutes ago."
" Ten minutes ago, and left mel I must
go on,that train. It is a question of life and
death to me. Can you get me to it? Have
you got an engine here ? Where is the Su
- The section -master had an office near by,
and the two went to find that official and
procure an engine. The traveler stated hiS
case-'-he must go on—could not delay—and
offered the officer $250 if he would, put him
on board that train. This strange demand
and strange offer caused the station master
to :hasten and do what he could. The fire
was not out of the engine that had drawn
the train to that point—the bargain was Set
tled—a draft given on New York for $250
and in ten minutes the traveler started with
an engine to overtake the flying express.
- . After rushing on for thirty or forty miles,
some connection gave way about the engine.
The engine was stopped—the engineer found s
the. difficulty, and in a few minutes had a
wooden . pin whittled out and fitted to, supply
the deficiency. With this on they flew.—
The train had, of course, .many miles the
start of them, and despite the wooden pin,
the engineer crowded on steam, and tore
through the country at'a fearful rate. Thir
ty miles of the distance passed was run in
twenty-seven minutes, but the' engagement
was that they should overtake the train, and
overtake it they did, but not until more than
one hundred miles had been run, and they
were approaching Toledo.
Having at length overtaken and stopped
the train and hurried on board, the traveler
went eagerly to a berth in the sleeping car,
and took therefrom a carpet bag containing
$175,000. His treasure was safe—none had
molested it, and dismissing his faithful cou
rier, he went on his way rejoicing at the suc
cess Of his perilous and exciting adventure.—
IMPORTANT SUIT DECIDED.—We learn from
the Johnstown Tribune, that the important
suit between A. M. & R. White and the Penn
sylvania Railroad Company, which has occu
pied so much of the time of the Cambria
county Courts for a year past, was decided on
Saturday last, after a trial of eight days du
ration. The jury returned a verdict for the
defendants. The suit was brought by the
Whites to recover a balance of some $16,000
for wood alleged to have been furnished the
Company on contract. It was tried last sum
mer before arbitrators, When the plaintiffs
received an award of $ll,OOO. 'Neither party'
being satisfied with this decision, the case
was carried up to Court. It was tried at last
December term, when, the jury awarded the
plaintiffs $7,500. With this they were still
not satisfied, - and both parties demanded a
new trial, and got it, with the result above
THE WmEir.—We took occasion, recently,
to examine some. Wheat fields on neighbor

larger and better filled berries than those we

what we can learn, the foregoing is general

A good instruction book for the Piano has long been

• Considering the author's well known capacity, and long
and unremitting devotion to the task of elementary teaching,
we have strong reason to hope that the public are now to
be furnished with a thorough, systematic, progressive, and
entertaining method fbr the Piano.
We can confidently recommend it to teachers and pupils
as better adapted to the purposes of elementary instruction
than any others with which we are acquainted.
The plan pursued in this work is substantially the same
as that developed in 011endorff's method of teaching lan
guages. It commences with the simplest elements. The
progress made will be gradual, so that every step will be
perfectly intelligible, and be rendered of - positive value to
the pupil. Every difficulty imiket with singly, and, after
thorough analysis, overcome linCractice.
This method will, undoubtedly, provide teachers with a
well digested, progressive, and entertaining plan by which a
sound and correct knowledge of the, art of playing the
piano may be acquired with comparatively little labor, and
in so short a space of time as will almost seem incredible
to those who have confined Aliemselves to some of the
tedious systems heretofore in use. -
This work contains ten engraved figures, illustrating the
different positions of the bands and fingers; and also a
likeness of the author.
Its typographical accuracy and appearance have ?MMr
been equalled in any musical work that has heretofore been

The history , of "IIOGFLAND'S GERMAN BIT
TERS," the most remarkable medicine of the day, and
the many cares that have been performed with it in cases
of LIVER COMPLAINT, DYSPEPSIA, NERVOUS DE
BILITY, and diseases arising from a disordered liver or
stomach, place it among-the -most astonishing discoveries
that have taken place in the medical world. The diseases
to which these Bittiws are applicable aroSOuniversal, that
there are but few- of our friends who may not test„their
virtues in their own families or circle of acquaintances,
and prove to their pen satisfaction that there is at least
one remedy among the many advertised medicines, deser
ving the public commendation. It is a tact that, in' the
mindS of many persons, a prejudice: exists against what
are called Patent, MedieineS ; hat why Should this prevent
you resorting to an article that has such an array of tes=
timony to support it as lloothunrs GernianDitters? Phy
sicians prescribe it, Why should you discard it? Judges,
usually considered men of talent, have' and douse it in
their own families. Why should you reject it? Clergy
men, and those 'the most eminent, take it; why should
not yota Let not your prejudice usurp your reason, to
the everlasting injury of your health; -if you aro sick, and
require a medicine, try these, Bitters.
These Bitters aro prepared and sold by Dr. C. M, :rack
son,.No. 41S Arch street, Philadelphia, Pa., and by drug
gists and storekeepers iu every town • and village in the
United States, Canadas, West Indies, and South America,
at 15 cents per bottle.. Soo that the signature of C.N.•
Jackson is on the wrapper of each bottle.
