connection from the seaboard to Chi

The Union of the Presbyterians.
After a separate existence of over
thirty years, the Old and New School
branches of tho Presbyterian Church,
On Thursday last, decided, through
their representatives in the Assemblies
cenvoned in Now York City to re-unite
and form hereafter a single church.
The report was unanimously reported ;
in 'at, Now School it was unanimously
adopted, and in tho Old School there
were but eight dissenting voices. Al
-though the plan is to be submitted to
the various Presbyteries for approval,
it -may be,c2nsidered that the question
of re-union is virtually settled.
The Dead Soldiers.
, Tho ceremony of decorating the
graves of fallen soldiers in our midst
transpired on Saturday last, and was
iivitnessed by hundreds of our citizens
from different parts of the county.
What a fitting tribute to the memory
of the fallen ! was the exclamation of
many. Whose heart, on witnessing
such a scene as that of last Saturday,
would not go out in appreciation of
the deeds of the soldiers "who have
sank to rest, by all their country's
wishes blest." What those deeds were
It is needless for us to recall, as the
events of the late rebellion aro too
fresh in our memory to be so soon for
• gotten. Enough be the epitaph—" They
died for their country !" What proud
er title or nobler heritage for man to
win and leave than that of being a
. martyr at his country's shrine.
Small tribute indeed is the annual
assembling at the graveri of the depar
ted soldiers when compared with the
magnitude of the services rendered by
them; but that little we aro glad to
see is rendered cheerfully and sponta
neously by. our citizens, without any
distinction of party. All who could
come, we believe did come; and their
presence, of itself, was an earnest of
the esteem in which the people of Old
Huntingdon county held their fallen
heroes. Everybody appeared impress
ed with the ceremonies, as conducted
under the auspices of the Grand Army
of the Republic of this place ; and we
would here extend our congratulations
to this noble order, composed of the
living soldiers of the Republic, for their
praiseworthy effort in thus keeping
fresh in our memories the record of
their fallen comrades, who, (will we
- say it ?) might have boon forgotten
lad it not been for this step taken by
- We repeat, then, let not the dead
soldiers be forgotten; and let us regu
larlygather at their graves and strew
"flowers, sweet flowers;" but while we
cheerfully bestow this outward mani
festation of regard, lot us keep ever in
our hearts the memory of their noble
services as rendered against the one ;
Mies of our country, the fruits of which
we are to day enjoying.

adrifliss Olive Logan, who left the
stage four years ago to pursue litera
ture, in a letter to the editor of the
New York Times, says that when girls
go into a theatre to apply for a situa
tion now-a-days, they find that the re
quirements of managers are expressed
in the following questions. These ques
tions show such a deplorable state of
publie'morals that comment is unnec
essary :
1. "Is your hair dyed yellow ?"
2. "Are your legs, arms and bosom
symmetrically formed, and aro you
willing to expose them 7"
3. "Can you sing brassy songs, and
dance the can•oan, and wink at men,
and giva utterance to disgusting half
Words which mean whole actions?"
4. "Aro you acquainted with any
rich mon who will throw you flowers,
and send you presents, and keep afloat
dubious rumors concerning your chas
tity ?" -
5. "Are you willing to appear to
night, and'every night, amid the glare
of gaslights and beforo the gaze of thou
sands of men, in this pair of satin
breeches ten inches long, without a
vestige of drapery on your person ?"
"If you can 'anstver these questions
affirmatively, we will give you a situ
ation. If not, there's the door."
.Pacificßailroad fare is a subject of
interest to everybody, because every
body's taxes helped to build the road.
The general ticket agent of
,the Cen
tral Pacific of California announces
that no pro rata tickets nor coupons
issued by any other railroad will be
received by that road ; and that th . e
passongor faro will be ten cents per
mile in gold. If this be a correct stato
moat of the policy of this road, then it
is but another illustration of the heart
lessness and shortsightednets of mo
nopolies. There is no excuse for any
such rates of fare. The road has not
cost the stockholders ono dollar. It
has been built by the money of the na•
tion ; but the managers of the Contra!
Pacific assuming that they havo a mo
nopoly, and that travol and traffic
must pass over their lino, now propose
to charge ten cents per mile, in gold,
for passenger faro over their share of
the road. It is an outrage and an ex
tortion to which the American people
will not submit.
A Very Singular Will---A Novel In
From the Columbui [Ohio] donreal, May 22
Yesterday we heard of and, read
part of the most singular will on rec
ord. The maker of this will is repre
sented to be a shrewd, successful busi
ness man, who has accumulated quite
a large fortune. Ho exhibits no other
signs of insanity than maybe derived
from the extreme eccentricity of bid
will, although it is probable the courts
will, in duo course, be called upon to
determine the question whether the
testator was of sound and disposing
The will disinherits all the natural
heirs of the maker of it, and devises
the entire property in trust for the es.
tablishment of an infirmary for cats.
A most elaborate architectural plan
for the necessary buildings is attached
to and made part of the will. It pro.
vides areas for that sweet amatory
converse so dear to the feline heart,
and rut holes of the most ravishing
nature, to be kept well stocked. The
most ingenious contrivances are pro.
vided for securing to the rat a chance
to escape, so that the cats may not
lose the pleasures of the chase by find
ing their prey come to easily. High
walls are to be built with gently slop
ing roofs, for moonlight promenade
and other nocturnal amusements of the
Tho trustees aro directed to select
the grounds for this novel infirmary
in the most populous part 'of some
American city,and the devises are to be
protected by a competent force of
nurses from the ravages of mon and
dogs. No person of the male sex is
ever to be admitted within the walls,
and no female who has children or is
under thirty years old. There are
hundi eds of minute directions which
we have no time to note.
One would suppose that in the fore
going provisions the testator had
exhausted all thei eccentricities of one
man, however uniqUe his nature; but
the last provision of the will seems
more outrageously bizarre than any
that go before. Says the devisor: "I
have all my life been taught to believe
that everything in and about man was
intended to bo useful, and that it was
Juan's :duty, ;as lord of animals, to
protect all the lesser species, even as
God protects and watches over him.—
Por these
.two combined reasons
—first, that my body, even after
death, may continuo to be made use
ful; and secondly, that it may be
made instrumental, as far as possible,
in furnishing a substitute for the pro
tection of the bodies of my dear friends,
the cats—l do hereby devise and be
queath the intestines of my body to
be made up into fiddlestrings, the pro
ceeds to be devoted to the purchase of
an accordeon, which shall be played
in the auditorium of the Cat Infirma
ry by ono of the regular nurses to be
selected for that purpose exclusiyely—
the playing to kept up for over and
ever, without cessation day and night,
in order that the cats may have the
privilege of always hearing and enjoy
ing that instrument which is the near
est approach to their natural voice."
If any journal can give us informa
tion of a more singular will than this,
we should like to hear of it.
PEEL-A man from the country in
vested five cents, in Hartford, Conn.,
in the purchase of an orange, and pre
paratory to getting himself outside of
it, throw the peel on the sidewalk.—
Soon after a young woman came along,
slipped upon the peel and fell, break
ing her log. The woman was to have
been married the next day, but wasn't.
The man .who was to marry her had
come from St. Paul, Minn., and was
obliged to return on account of busi
ness, to await the recovery of the girl.
On his way back ho unfortunately took
a train on the Erie railroad, which ran
off the track, and his shoulder blade
was broken, forcing him to stop at
Dunkirk for repairs. On getting back
to St. Paul, ho found that his forced
absence had upset a business arrange
ment which he had expected to com
plete., at a pecuniary loss to him of
$5,000. Meantime the injured girl suf
fered a relapse, which so enfeebled her
health that her marriage was delayed,
which had a bad effect upon the young
man, and he finally broke the engage
ment and married a widow in Minne
sota with four small children. This
so worked upon the mind of the girl
that she is now in the insane hospital
in Middletown, Connecticut. Her fa
ther, outraged by the conduct of the
young man, brought a suit for broach
of promise, and has just recovered ton
thousand dollars, The anxiety and
expense of the whole affair thus far
have been enormous, as anybody can
see. Similar cases aro likely to occur,
so long as people will persist in throw
ing orange peel around loose.
FlNANcret. SmtNo.—The words and
phrases which have crept into use
among brokers and speculators would
form quite an interesting collection:
For example, there aro 'bulls' and
'bears,' 'aborts,' 'curbstone operators,'
'puts' and Malls,"cash,"rogular,' 'buy
ers' option,' fancies,' 'milkers,' &c., &o.
There aro equally suggestive terms in
use on the Loudon Stock Exchange.
Thus when stocks are depressed, they
are 'hanged;' whcu a speculator is bjt.
ton, he is on 'the tip;' when he be-
Conies involved he is in the meta:
ing, in despite of the falling rain, the
Friend'§Meeting House, at the north
east cornet of Eutaw and Monument
streets, was filled down stairs and up
by a large and fashionable congrega
tion, who had gathered together to
witness the marriage of Mr. Nathaniel
Cronehaw, of Richmond, and Miss Liz
zie Joliffo, of this city. The groom
and bride took the front seat facing
the body of the church with the moth
er and uncle of the bride to her left.—
The attendants occupied seats imme
diately- in front facing the happy
The bride was dressed in white sat
in with long train, trimmed handsome
ly. She wore a white bonnet with
orange flowers, and a white opera
cloak trimmed with white satin. Her
dress was rich and elegant, and she
was indeed a fair and beautiful bride
to look upon. The groom was attired
in a fashionable suit of black 'with
white cravat and gloves. There were
five bridesmaids and groomsmen.
For some time the happy couple,
evidently impressed with the impor
tance of the occasion, sat in deep si
lence and without motion, the bride
with her eyes cast down to the ground.
Amid the breathless silence that pre
vailed, they stood up, and Mr. Cren
shaw, taking his affianced by the hand,
said in a firm voice words to about
the following effect : "I 'take thee,
Elizabeth Joliffe, to be my wife,'and
promise by. Divine assistance to bo to
thee a lovingand faithful husband until
death do part us." - To which she re
plied : "1 take thee, Nathaniel Cren
shaw, to be my husband, and I prom
ise by Divine assistance to be a loving
and faithful wife to thee until death do
part us."
Mr. Franci4' T. King then read a
declaration to the purport that the
parties had declared their intention
before the religious society, and bad
the consent of their surviving parents
and their marriage was allowed 'at
said mooting and that they had appear
ed in a public meeting and thernmade
the declaration to be husband and
wife. This declaration was then sign
ed by the groom and bride, a table
with pen and ink being placed before
them. Mr. King then read further
that the declaration had been signed
by both, she taking after the marriage
custom, her husband's name, and sign
ing her new name of Crenshaw.
I,)r. James Carey Thomas then do
livered an elegant address on the pas
sage, "For Godliness is profitable to
all things, having possession of this
world and the world to come?'
The address bad direct reference to
the ceremony which had just taken
place. The beauties of religious life
were forcibly portrayed. After this
address a venerable . lady prayed for
the happiness of the young couple.—
' This prayer was followed by another
from an elderly member of the society.
The bridal party then left the church,
the groom, and bride first, followed in
succession by their attendants.—Balti

dren who work in one of the (Alice
pee (Mass.) factories, Eli Goodro, fif
teen pears old, and Louisa Stebbins,
fourteen, fell downright in love so
deep they determined, with an utter
contempt of consequences, to go and
got married, us grown folks do. Chi
copee clerks and clergy very sternly
and sensibly refused to grant a mar
riage certificate or ceremony, where.
upon the decided youth came to this
city, and obtained both. The Palmer
Journal says the civil sanction was ob.
tamed fro the city clerk, and the re
ligious from Rev. Dr. Ide. At all
events, they were successful in their
visit,and started for Thorndike, there
to spend the honeymoon until Louisa's
parents should forgive them. They
got as far as Palmer, on Wednesday
evening, and spent the night in the
depot—certainly a very elegant bri
dal chamber. But on Tbrusday morn
ing the parental Stebbinses bore down
on them ere the Thorndike craft hove
in sight, and captured the outward
bound adventurers. They wanted to
separate the bold babies, but though
Louisa, disheartened by the meagre
outset of the voyage, was willing to
haul off, Eli remarked, defiantly, that
they had been gone and done it, and
what did they mean to do about it ?
Impressed by his view of the case, and
by the advice of a Palmer justice to
make the best of it, the parents relent
ed and conveyed the precious pair
home, triumphantly happy.
al Assemblies of both the Old and new
School branches of the Presbyterian
Churches meet in Now York, otOVed

uniting these two powerful religious
orgunizations,will be completed. Their
proceedings will be watched with
the deepest interest by the religious
world and their union will be the first
stop towards uniting under one com
munion head all the various divisions
of Presbyterians. This union cannot
but prove advantageous to the cause
of Christianity. The trifling differen
ces between them have been the cause
of bitter antagonism, that -have been
prejudicial to the interests of the
churches of the Presbyterian faith,
and were the result of prejudices that
should long since given way to reason
and a liberal Christian spirit. The
prospect that the bigotry which has
heretofore separated Christians es

disappear, is an encouraging sign of

the proposed union will be :hailed

Go TO FARMING —A good living is
what comparatively few men succeed
in making in village or city life, and
yet nothing is moro easy of accom
plishment on the farm. Besides, there
is a pleasure in cultivating and embel
lishing the earth, improving and in
creasing its products, and thus adding
to the aggregate of human happiness.
Why, then, should young men hesitate
to be farmers? It is both profitable
and honorable. It is the nearest ap
proximation to independence that a
man,as a:member of society, can make.
A gentleman farmer—and all farmers
are, or should be, gentlemen—belongs
to an order of nobility that is not in
debted to place-holders for installation
and may, if ho chooses, be ranked
among the greatest benefitetors of the
human race. Lot the idle young men
go to work on farms, and quit seeking
third and fourth rate clerkships. In
short, go to farming and quit begging.
