the question, Who of our patrons will
donate us a gobbler to gobble ? We
will await and see.
We have received from Mr. D. G.

mammoth turnips, which filled a half

they can't be beat. Mr. C. has our

Thoughts upon #
receiving a Wedding
. Our devil has led us into the secrets
of- his mind when contemplating a
wedding cake, or rather, pieces of lux
uries, sent, with ceremony, into our
hands. Wo have noted them as he
divulged them, and - we trust they will
have their weight in throwing light
upon some people's understanding.—
He first considered them the last re=
lies of a happy ovation, in which the
joyful countenances of a happy eon.
pie gave increased life and pleasure to
the scene. He imagined himself a par.
taker of the delicacies spread in invi

ticipator in the joys of the hour when
two mortals were made as ono. Af

transcendent glory, and' revelling in

the contemplation of the reality, and

He knows not whether to appease his
longing appetite or ruffled temper by

whether to preserve them as a last-ing

many soldiers in our midst during the
election who came home for the pur

they now have the pleasing conscious

the people at large. These "boys,"
together with those who went further

their countrymen will support them.
TILE UNION SUPPER.—A free Union
oyster supper was given on Saturday
evening at A. Jacob's Hotel to all Uni•
on citizens that wished to partake
thereof. A table, which accommoda
ted over sixty persons, was filled sev
eral times, and all who ate were satis

and witty addresses were made by
prominent citizens, and a band of
martial music gave a lively character
to the occasion. As the supper was
free to all, many wore prevented from

We understand that the occasion was

will observe a large increase in this

polled at the Presidential election
compared with those for State officers.
To account for this increase we have
not to attribute it to an influx of law

of the aliens, of wh!ch that section is
full, came to the polls and in the spite
of everything cast their votes for their
favorite Id'Clellan. At the end of the
voting, and after the votes had been

MEMOIR OF JAMES CLARKE
It was on the 19th of October, 1961, that Mr. Clarke

more to Lewisburg—the home of his birth, that he might
again breathe the air and review the scenes of that favor

graves of affection. And as ho looks upon the urned
ashes of a brother and nelster, the pale shadows or the
sepulchre settle on his brow. Its turns to a little grassy

It Is not my purpose, nor Is this the proper time to
trace the career, or to pronounce the eulogy of this good

of October. 1814, he attained to the age of sixty-four
years.. And then lie received the fulfillment of the prom

PRAYER BY REV. lIOUCR.
Oh God, our Father and Friend!—
We feel the sacredness of the trust
which has just been committed to us.
As a Regiment of living men, having
been marshaled as soldiers for the de
fence of our country, we have, upon
tuts • %fluty day ,',. tbm.L
ate presence, received the "Flag"which
floats in •the breeze before us, at the
hands of our Colonel from His Excel
lency 'the Governor of Pennsylvania.
Wo thank thee that in these wise dis
pensations of Thy providence Thou
bast moved us to come forth in defence
of a cause which lies so near every
true patriotic heart. Around this Na
tional banner lingers, in sweetest re
pose, our dearest interest and foodest
recollections. It emblematizes all that
is pure and sacred to us American cit
izens. The life and vigor of our own
civil, political and religious institu
tions are alike dependent upon the
protection afforded this dear "Flag;"
under its sacred folds our Plenipoten
tiaries have been respected, honored
and died is distant lands ; under it,
our proud Navy has canvassed the
wide ocoads unharmed and honored;
and bathed in its rich and variegated
shadows many a bravo heart has felt
his life blood ooze away, during the
progress of this unprovoked and san
guinary war. „And now, as the God
of our revolutionary fathers, as the
God of our liberties, as the God of the
mighty army of brave men who have
shown their love of country by dying
for it, we pray Thee make us, as sol
diers, worthy recipients of,a trust so
sacred ; and may it be the chief glory of
the bearer of this "Banner" catorry it
(in the fearof God) .through the thick
est of the smoke in the fiercest battle,
and bring it out in triumph, without a'
enemies • with vic
tory in letters of living light written
upon every bar and blazing from eve
ry star. Oh God ! we pray Theo,
bless the Captain of the "color coin
; pany'," with all his officers and men.—
Bless each Captain and each officer of
all the companies in the Regiment.—
Bless our Colonel with all the Regi
mental and Staff officers. Oh God I
may our Commanding officer be in
spired, from above, with true and pa
triotic valor, that he may successfully
lead these noble men to victory, glory
and peace. Preserve his life with the
lives .of his men, and may we all
(when peace shall have been restored
to our country, now drenched in
blood) return' to our quiet homes and
loved friends to enjoy the rich boon
for which our lives are imperiled.—
Oh God! wo pray Thee,guide the Pres
ident of these United States, with
all his advisers, in the solution of the
intricate problem of war, which now
so agitates their minds. And grant to
them the "Holy Spirit," that it may
direct them in the use of the most ju
dicious means for the speedy and per
manent termination of Oils bloody
strife. • Bless the Commanding officer
of the great Union armies. now in the
field. Oh God ! give him a proper ap
preciation of the responsible position
he holds. And under his wise gener
alship, in conjunction With the united
and harmonious efforts of .those tin
der him, may peace quickly spread
her - halcyon beams over our entire
land. All these unmerited favors wo
ask alone through the merits and in
the name of Christ Jesus, our Lord,
