jgV- The Senntorial Conferees of the District
omposcd of Bradford, Susquehanna, Wyoming and Sul
fivau *i" metit at Sherwood's Susquehanna Co., on
Monday the l.'.tli day of September next.
Monday, the 25 h ult., forty four
volunteers left Sullivan county, lor Camp Curtin. Tak
j n g into consideration those that have previously gone,
gullivau is doing finely.
The scveu Companies from this County
were organized into a regiment with two companies from
Susquehanna and one from Wayne, at Harrisburg, last
week. Maj. H. J. MADILI. was elected Colonel, GUY H.
WATKINS Lieutenant Colonel ; I. P. SPALDING Major
On Friday last, they were armed and started for Wash- j
ington, being the first regiment organized in the State;
for the war. The regiment is Xo. 141. P. V. We have I
been premised the muster rolls, which we shall publish
as soon as received.
jfrg-The drouth lias been general through- ,
out the country, and much complaint is made in the lo
cal papers as to the damage done. The corn lias suffer- >
ed considerably, the ears are not filled up, and the yield j
will lie lighter than anticipated. Potatoes have also suf- j
fered for want of rain, while the grass is very much parch
ed. The peaches, in many sections, are shrivelling upon j
the trees, and those that are ripe are lacking in flavor.— j
Other is suffering.
ggjv. owinto the fact that fo laiqjc a tiutn- j
ber of the male teachers from Sinithfield and its vicinity j
have gone into the army—also, that all the officers, or j
nearly all, are out of the county, it has heen thought ad- ,
visable to postpone the meeting of the Teachers' Associ- j
ation which was to he held on the 12 A 13 iusts., uhtil the
annual meeting. The ex itement consequent upon the
news from the war absorbs all other interests. All who
were to take part in the meeting, will he expectdd to
perform the same parts at the annual meeting, of which
due notice will be given.

A Company of enterprising gentlemen of Steuben Co.> i

the purpose of raising Grapes and the manufacture ot
pure Wines and Brandies. The climate upon the shore !

The editor of the Seranton Republican
; being present at Camp Curtin , when the 132 d Regiment
; was formed, pays the officers and men the following com. i
' pliment. The Regiment is composed of the foil wing Com
. pauies:—
j Capt. Townsend, Bradford county.
I Chase, " "
•' John, Catawissa Guards, Columbia co.
" Wiiituioyer, Bloomsburg Guards, Columbia co.
'• Shrcve, Danville Fencibles, Montour co.
" Stilwell, Seranton Guards, Luzerne co.
'• Archbald. Railroad Guards. "
" lughain, Wyoming Tigers, Wyoming co.
" Abbot, Carbon co.
" Willhelm, Lehigh Valley Guards, Lehigh co.
" We will answer for these men ; they will do their
duty without flinching. Their ompanies are all quite
up to, or near the maximum, and better stuff we do not j
j believe has gone out of that Camp. Capt. TOWNSEND is
a firm, determined, square-built m in, and he and Capt. !
CHASE who is stout, kind hearted, good humored, but j
prompt have their couscierfte iu this fight. We need j
say nothing better to tlicir credit than this, that when it j
was suggested that Bradford ought to have a field officer, j
they concluded each bad taken as iimeh responsibility as j
th y ought, in undertaking a captain's.
Capt. Wiiirii J.vK is a genial, liberal minded Columbia !
county dutch man, ar.d neither he nor Capt. JOHN will :
ever fiiiieli, or we are mistaken. Tlie latter is a keen, j
intelligent, blight-eyed young muu with a ready smile j
and seli-pos.-e.-.-ed manner, who gave up a profession to !
go to war. i
Capt. INGHAM i.- aire de-t, unassuming man who will j
strictly attend to bis own business and cimcieutiously J

have labored to produce the MOIT effectual altera
tive that can be made. It is a concentrated extract ol
Para Sarsaparilla, so combined with other substances of
-till greater alterative power as to afford an effective an
tidote lor the diseases Sa'saparilla is reputed to cure. It
' is believed that such a remedy is wanted by those who
suffer from Strumous complaints, and that one which will
accomplish their cure must prove of iunneu-e service to
this large class of our afflicted fellow-citizens. How com
pletely this compound will do It has been proven by ex
perinent on many of the worst cases to be found of the
FIRE, and indeed the whole class of complaints arisiug
This compound wi.L be iound a great promoter ot
health, when taken in the spring, to C-xpel the foul hu
mors which tester in the blood at that season of the year.
By the timely expulsion of them many raukliug disor
der-are nipped in the bud. Multitudes can by the aid
of this remedy, spare themselves from the endurance of
foul eruptions and ulcerous sores, through which the
system will strive to rid Itself of corruptions, if not as
sisted to do this through the natural channels ot the
body by an alterative medicine. Cleanse out the vitiated
blood whenever you lirni its impurities bursting through
the skin in pimples, eruptions, or 90ROB ; cleanse it when
you find it is obstructed and sluggish in the veins ;
cleanse it whenevei it H foul, and your feelings will tell
you when. Even wheie DO particular disorder is felt,
people enjoy belter health, and live louger. for cleansing
the blood. Keep the blood healthy, and all is well ; but
with this pabulum of lite disordered, there can be no
I lasting health. Soulier or later something must go
wrong, and the great machinery oi life is disordered or
Sarsaparilla has. and deserves much, the reputation,
of accomplishing these ends. But the world has been
egregiously deceived by preparations of it, partly because
the drug alone has uotall the virtue that is claiinea for I
it, but more because many preparations, pretending to he I
concentrated extracts of it, contain hut little of the vir- I
tue of Sarsaparilla, or any thing else.
During late years the public have been misled by large ;
j bottles, pretending to give a quart ol Extract ot Sarsa- j
I parilia tor one dollar. Most of these have been frauds'
I upon the sick, for they not only contain little, if any,
j Sarsaparilla, but often no curative properties whatever. |
Hence, bitter and painful disappointment has followed I
, the use of the various extracts of Sar-aparilla which j
flood the market, until the name itself is justly despised, i
and has become synonymous with imposition "and cheat. '
Stiii we call this compound Sartaparilla, and intend to j
I supply such a remedy as shall rescue the name from the I
1 load of obloquy which rests upoh it. And we think we !
; have ground tor believing it has virtues which are ir- i
1 resi-stahle by the ordinary run of the diseases it is intend- j
edtocrue. In order to secure their complete eradica- j
I tion from the system, the remedy should be judiciously ;
| taken according to directions on the bottle.
