Pnor. COI LE AND THE CONTINE:sITALS.---
l'bese gentlemen gave a Vocal and Instru
mental Concert in the Court House, on Tues
day. and Wednesday evenings of last week,
to well selected audiences. We have heard
in our time, some of the best musical celeb
rities, domestic and imported, and we say
without hesitation, that these gentlemen, in
purity of tone and skillful execution, is enti
tled to rank with any of them. In our hum
ble judgment, they are far superior to many
troupes that traverse this Union from one end
to the other, and who are applauded wher
ever they go. We' are sorry they did not
meet with the reception we anticipated they
would—their audiences being rather slim.—
We know, however, that those in attendance
enjoyed a musical treat of tamest unsurpassed

repetition of the pleasure on any subsequent
effort they may put forth to amuse the pub

day, and gave a concert in the ToWn Hall, in

THE COUNTY FAIR.—The weather during
the three days of the Exhibition, could not
have been more pleasant, and the Exhibition
was very creditable to the people of this coun
ty. The display of stock was not quite as
large as it should and could have been, but
fully equal to most of the county fairs in the
State this Fall. The fruit, vegetable, floral,
painting, shell and ornamental departments
came fully up to our expectations, and we doubt
whether any other county in the State could
equal them. All other departments were
creditable, and we feel very confident that
they will be much improved at the next exhi
The crowd of people in attendance on Wed
nesday and Thursday, was very large---al_
most too large for comfort, but we believe all
went home well pleased.
We have been informed by the treasurer,
that over eight hundred dollars were received
for tickets, sufficient to pay all expenses and
leave a small sum in the treasury.

This young man, at the time of the colored
camp meeting, was slightly afflicted with the
scarlet-rash, and we are informed that while
he was on the camp ground he was abused
by some of the young men of our town, and
run and stoned, and so much over-heated and
frightened, that he immediately took his bed,
and in a few days after was a corpse. The
young men guilty of so shameful an act,
should be very thankful if they are permit
ted to escape proper punishment.
ger. A 'correspondent of the Huntingdon
Globe, over the signature of " Ridger," in a
communication says, "The future has come."
We suppose, then, after this we may reckon
the future as a thing of the past.—Browns
You had better be careful, Bobby, or
"Gudgeon" will pitch into you like "a thous

in the sense he uses " The future has come."
Come now, don't get riled at your fellow
scribe, "Gudgeon," as we used to term him
in your apprentice clays. You should remem
ber that it is " Gudgeon " that is talking.
The Circus that performed here on
Monday last, was largely attended by both
town and country folks. The large pavillion
was crowded in the afternoon and evening.—
The performance was better than we have
seen for 5ey,.. 7„ years. We never attended a
Circus wheie' so general satisfaction was
given. The collection of animals is not very
large, but of the first character. The two
performing elephants are the best ever ex
hibited in this region of country. All in all,
it is the Circus of the times.

beautiful assortment of Cloths, Cassimeres
and Vestings, which he is prepared to make

will do well to call on Mr. King. It will

For a long time a certain class of diseases have baffled
the skill and practice of the most eminent members of the
regular medical faculty. Foremost among these we might
instance epilepsy or falling fits. Happily new by the skill
and inventive genius of an eminent chemist of Baltimore,
Md., this dise..me has ki.ctri brought within the means of a
cure. We allude to the preparation called the VEGETABLE
EXTRACT EPILEPTIC PILLS, invented and prepared by Dr.
SETH S. HAzvcr, of 108 Baltimore street, Baltimore, Md.
Since their discovery many persons who had given up all
hope of ever being cured, have been restored to the full
enjoyment of health. Prominent among these we might
enumerate Mr. HARBISON LIGHTFOOT, of Huntsville, Ala
bama. Mr. L. has suffered as much from Epilepsy, as any
other person in the world; never knowing what it was to
pass a week without having an attack, and often falling in
the streets of Huntsville. He IS now fully restored and
has not had an attack for more than a year. Dr. Hance's
Pills have been the sore cause of this cure. These pills
also cure all modifications of Fits, Spasms, Cramps, &c.,
and aro very serviceable for persons of weak nerves. Dr.
Hance, sends them to any part of the country on the re
ceipt of a remittance. Price, one box, $3 ; two, $5; twelve,
