ticle we furnish our readers weekly.
publishing a newspaper, the size of'
the Globe, with the same amount of
reading matter, for 61,50 a year, is a
-losing business, a fact we have been
:aware of for some months, but until
'it was decided at the late election that

friends to help us The cost of print.
ling paper, ink, labor and living, is
more than doubled since the-war be
gun, and our prices have been the
'same as they were before the war
commenced, and if we should contm
he to demand -no more for our paper,
etc., than we have .done heretofbre,
- er'y- soon the cash war prices we are

In accordance with our expecta
tion, our, subscribers are not in the
least dis Concerted by the information
that we had increased the price of the
Globs: They know the justness of the
thing, and some have-declared that it
would have been right should we have
increased the same to $2,50. But
such terms we have not instituted, and
believe that our terms are now so low
as LO make no very material detrac
tion from the funds of the poorest of
our former Subscribers. And what
does this deduction amount LO when
compared to the fact that a paper, in
every respect worth the amount paid,
is received. No loSs is sustained by
subscribers, but rather au infinite
gain. It is premature to expatiate
upon the results of the new system,
but, as we have intimated, all appear
satisfied, and we can feel easy. None
have discontinued, but many have re
newed and subscribed.
Snow fell to the: depth of eight or
nine inches on Friday night last—the
first of any consequence and made use
of this 80118014. Sleds and sleighs
were immediately brought into use,
and the steeds were inadtY to sweat
fir the gratification of jovial parties
enjoying the exhilarating breeze. The
juveniles had their sport, also, and
were coasting hillsides or smoothif.g
pavements, greatly to their own en
joyment, but imminent to the break
ing of the pedestrian's neck. We
would caution the boys, now that win
ter has set in and sled riding days
commeneed, not to make use of the
side-walks for their' fun, as they do so
much to their own and others risk.
It is very seldom we can exactly
suit the taste of our readers by selec
ting such Copy as will suit everykidy's
taste, notwithstanding our every et; -
deavor to that end. Upon the out.
side of this issue, however, we have
published - a:Uglily interesting and in
structive article, which we commend
to the earnest perusal of all lovers of
good reading. The article in question
miginated from the pen of that re•
now i‘ed author—President Abraham
Lincoln, familiarly styled "Oid
It is his latest and we may , say best.
The cry of Fire was heard on Wed
nesday afternoon last, caused by Smoke
seen issuing from the roof of the house
formerly used as a pottery. of Mr. Hen
ry Glazier, on the corner of Smith and
Washington streets; in this borough.
The fire was immediately extinguished
upon discovet y, and no further dam.
age than the horning of a portion of
the roof and soaking the garret with
water was the result. The fire was
the result of building too large a fire
in the stove, And of a defective pipe.
Ail persons who desire to insert ad.
vertisements or notices in this paper,

failure to observe this requirement
will result greatly to the inconvenience
of the compositors, and we cannot
publish any notices or advertisements
handed in when the edition is ready

We are malting preparations for a
general settlement of accounts, in
view of the high cash prices deman
ded for everything in connection with
the publication of a weekly family
journal. Bills will be made out and
forwarded as soon as practicable to all
delinquents indebted on subscription,

expect that persons upon receiving
them will cancel their indebtedness
without delay. Those knowing' them-
selves indebted and can make con•

bills are made out will confer a favor.

On bunday evening last, when the
winds - blew high, and the state o;
temperature altiont down to zero, the
cry of fire WaB heard on our streets.—
To their praise be it said a goodly
number of our citizens were immedi
ately at the spot where the cry orig
inated, notwithstanding the desper
ate frigidity. All were highly grab•
tied that the alarm was false, as it
would have been impossible, under
theeircumstances, to have extinguish
ed the smallest tegionings of a tire.—
The fact that it would have been an
unfortunate night for a fire probably
gave rise to the alarm.
Woman Burned to Deoth.
We nave received indefinite intelli
gence of the burning of a woman
named Mrs. Horning, a resident of
Cornpropts Mills, in this county. We
give.the same as we heard it, The
woman, through some cause or other,
took tiro to her dress, and was unable
to call for assistance on account of
dumbness. When discovered she was
in a horrible and •critical condition,
and death shortly afterwards ended
her agony. We hope to hear a fuller
detail of the accident.

people's and country's advantage.
Here it is :

Mr. Samuel Thompbon, of Spruce
U. S. CHRISTIAN COMMISSION.
MARTINSBURG, VA., NOV. 1, 1.861.
MISS CARRIE THOMPSON :-
It becomes my painful duty to in
form you that your brother Alfred
Thompson died last night about
M., in Hospital No. 2, Martinsburg,
Va. You perhaps-received the letter
which I wrote you on yesterday.—
Though I was fearful at the time I
wrote, he might not recover, yet I
wrote just as he prompted me. His
disease was pneumonia. About 11
o'clock A. M., when I wrote for him
I inquired if there was anything I
could do farther for him ; if there was
anything he thought he could eat; he
replied he had not much appetite, but
thought he could eat a roasted apple.
I then had religious conversation with
him and prayer with one just along
side ofhim. I can safely say I never
talked with any one who gave me bet
ter hopes that he was prepared to go
than this one. I think he was truly
a child of God, and that your loss is
his gain. Oh ! that there were more
such soldiers as he was. True, you
have parted with a brother, arid 'I can
but believe he must have been a dear
brother. How can you wish yourself
away from that Savior, whom he so
much loved—rather let it be a warning
to you to prepare to meet him in that
bright world above, where all is love.
To us it is very mysterious why God
does not spau•e such men, yet he tells
us "what I do thou kuowest not now,
but thou shalt know hereafter."—
When I returned to give him the ap
ple, he seemed to be asleep, I felt his
pulse, or for it, and it seemed to be
gone. The young man who lay along
side of him, remarked, he thought
him very quiet, for he bad heard him
breathe not long before. He was
quite warm, yet to all appearance life
was gone. The young man by him
bed written a letter to his chaplain a
few moments before. He mnst have
just fell asleep, and died without .a
struggle. His friends by him could
hardly think him dead. , He now lies
in his coffin waiting his
went to him a few moments ago, ent
a small lock of Itair,.which I inclose.—
He is to he burird at BP. M., by es
cort, of soldiers—l expect to attend
his funeral. 6P.M. I have attended
his funeral ; ho was buried with the
honors of war, with the rank of Set ,
geant. The funeral was Vet). solemn.
You were not hero to weep, but oth
ers wept, for one Of the good •is gene.
His grave is plainly marked, the board
is painted white and letters painted
on it; it may be readily found by any
one. He now sleeps with many sol
diers in the beautiful Cemetry . of
Washington. I teldom felt more in
terest in any ono than in him, from so
short ansacquaintance. I send you by
express his bible, diary, day book and
some other articles. I looked at his
book, and was much pleased in seeing
there the evidence of' a child of God.
