Wednesday morning, Dec. 30, 1863.
.1.0 CAC PERSONAL,
Another Young Sadler Gone.— The
remains of SOLIN A. Conmx, son of
Ferdinand Corbin, of this place, wore
brought home on Tuesday last, and
interred on ThulSday. Young Cor
bin was a member of Capt. Fee's com
pany, 2.2 d Pa. Cavalry, and while out
oh lAcket ditty in Loudon Valley, Va.,
On the 16th iiist., was shot, as it is
supposed, by guerrillas, as ho was
dead when found and stripped of his
clothing. Young Corbin would have
been 19 years old on the 2.3 d of next
month, about the time his term of ser
vice would have expired.
LEAP YE UL---The year of our Lord
one thousand, eight hundred and sixty
four, will be Bissextile . or Leap Year.
It is so called because it leaps over a
dny more in the short mouth of Febru
ary than in a common year ; thus in
common years there are 365 days, in
leap year 366. It is said that during
this year, more bachelors commit ma
trimony than in the other three, and
for this several reasons have been as
signed. Caring nothing about reasons,
we hope the halt may commence roll
ing early it; the year, and continuo
until thousands shall be able to say in
the language, of Shakspeare
She is mine own ;
And I as having sueli a Jewel
As twenty seas if all their sands were pearl,
The Waters Nectar, and the rocks'puro Gold.
CURISTMAS.—Friday last was spent
in a cheerful manner by the citizens
of this locality. Old and young were
unusually joyous on that day, and ma
ny were sorry that it was so soon gone,
to leave them in the assurance that
the best of earthly pleasures must have
an end. The children, as usual on
this holiday, paraded the streets at
early morn, to receive their annual
gifts of sugared cakes, baked in every
shape from chickens, horses, and other
animals,up to a man; the middle-aged,
after enjoying themselves in giving
and receiving presents, whiled a while
away in the healthy and merry sport
of skating; and even some of the older
ones, who would they were boys again,
gave some trials of their skill on ice,
long since neglected, much to the merri
ment and astonishment of the erowdb
.1 distribution of presents will be
made at our book store on New Year's
day, and the young folks are requested
to be present at 9 o'clock in the morn
ing, when the distribution will emu
gel. The distribution of gifts to the
juveniles at Lewis' Book Store on
Christmas day was a perfect success.
The notice given was short, but short
as it was, over three hundred and fifty
reported during the day, received their
presents, returned home, some pleased
and some disappointed. There is life
and music where there are 'two or
three hundred merry juveniles. A
lively time may be expected at the
same place on next Friday.
KEEP THEM Waum.—A distinguished
medical gentleman says that diseases
of the chest are early contracted by
exposure to the cold without sufficient
clothing. The greater portion of chit
dren from one to fifteen months old,
who die in winter, are killed by the
cold, or diseases resulting from cold.
Woolen flannel is recommended as the
best clothing to be worn next the skin
in our climate, at least - for nine months
in the year. If parents would pro.
serve the health and lives of their little
ones, they should keep them warmly
clad, especially about the chest and
feet. Woolen socks should be adopted,
lbr cold feet are almost always the
cause of catching cold.
7e1 6 Persons wishing to economize
in clothing their children, will do well
to try metal tipped shoes. Children
invariably - wear out their shoos at tho
too first. Metal tips never wear out
at the toe, and a pair of tipped shoos
at an additional cost of a few cents,
will more than outwear three pair of
the same quality without them—Bos
A HAPPY NEW YEAR.—This being
our last issue for the present year, we
take pleasure in returning thanks for
favors received during the year, and
wish all our patrons, old and young,
a Happy Nov Year.

addressed to any Executive Depart
