BFET MURDEROUS ASSAULT- On Saturday
night last, about 12 o'clock, a pedler named PATRICK
DALY was assailed by a party of some eight negroes, and
so severely injured that be now lies in a very cl itic il con
dition at the American hotel. DAI.T was known to have
a considerable amount of money, and it is supposed that
the object of the vidians was to rob and murder him.—
Had not assistance reached him at the very moment their
object would, undoubtedly, have been accomplished. It
strikes us that the borough authorities ought to investi
gate this, as well as other similar outrages committed by
these " black pets

HQ,. Owing to the fact flint so lar;re n num
ber of the male teachers from Smithfield and its vicinity
have gone into the army—also, that all the officers, or
nearly all, are out of the county, it has been thought ad
vi.-alde to postpone the meeting of the Teachers' Associ

annua! meeting. The excitement consequent upon the
news from the-war absorbs at! other interests. Ail who

due notice will be given.

On Monday last, about two hundred
men left this place, for Harrisbtrrg rn response to the call
or the Governor, to protect the State from invasion. They
"were all armed and equipped, and went with the deter
mination to protect our borders as long as the State is
Th- company that left this immediate vicinity was
Captain —E. O.GOODRICH,
Ist Lieutenant —JAMES MACFARLANK.
2d Limit A. J. TROCT,
This county has responded to the call of the Governor
with great enthusiasm. We have not been able to ascer
tain how many have really gone.
P. S.—Since the ab >ve was put in type, we learn that
these Companies have I een mustered into a Regiment,
and ordered to Cbambersburg. JOHN F. MEANS, Esq.,
of this plaoe, has been elected Lieut. Colonel. We have
not learned the names of the other officers.
In Honduras, invalids afflicted with
"Scrofula visit the streams that have drained from wild
lauds where Sarsaparilla grows. It is found that the
waters become impregnated w'rt'i the medicinal virtues of
this drug and the nativre drank it, bathe in it, and live
on it for weeks. Whatever its effects these " teal er in to
rtures have a reputation notanferior to oar own Sara
toga and great numbers sqrely obtain relief at them from
the eruptions, ulcerations, and sores, which are so afflict
ing always to a half civilized people. Yet I find all
■classes have more confidence in Dr. Ayer's Extract of
Sarsaparillfa, than in the impregnated waters or any
compound ef the foot fhart they can make. Those who
can afford to buy it, doo, and it is in very general use
here, curing them surer and quicker than they can get
t*!ief without it. Not a few ef our staple products go
thus to foreign lands are there manipulated by scientific
artisan skill, and then come back for OUT consumption
use.— Coriesjtondenl of the Her aid from TruxMlo.
DRAFTING.—SpeciaI instructions have
been received by me requiring notice to be given that
the draft will be made of the 15th day of Septembet. 1862,
for the number of men to fill the quota for each district,
unless the district furnishes the men as Volunteers before
that day ; but in case the appeals could not be finished
by that time, the Governor might extend the time 7 but
the extension would not exceed five days, which will be
the 20tb. Each district (Township or Borough), can of
fer volunteers to the Commissioner at any time betore
that day to make up their quota, and thereby obviate the
draft entirely. But we are not authorized to subsist them
until the day of the draft.
As the sudden call for volunteers and Militia, has ex
hausted the supply of blankets fit for military purposes in
the market, and it will take some time to procure, l>y
manufacture or importation, a sufficient supply, all citi
zens who may volunteer, or be dratted, are advised to
take with them to the fendezvous, if possible, a good
stout woolen blanket. The regulation military blanket
is 84 X 06 inches, and weighs five pounds.
We are unable to ascertain with entire accuracy the
precise number of men to be drafted from each district
until the exemptions are decided, but we have made the
apportionment among the different districts as nearly as
possible, although we can only give an approximation to
the final result. The figures below can be relied upon as
very nearly correct.
The quota lor this county to fill the several requisitions
made upon this State by the War Department is 2944
The county has already sent to the service 2058

A COMPOUND REMEDY, in which we
XIL- have labored tc produce the most effectual altera
tive that can tie made. It is a concentrated extract of
Para Sarsaparilla, so combined with other substances of
still greater altcrat : ve power as to afford an effective an
tidote lor the diseases Sannparilla is reputed to cure. It
is believed that such a remedy is wanteJ by those who
suffer from Strumous complaints, and that one which will
accomplish their cure must prove ot immense service to
this large class of our afflicted tellow citizens. How com
pletely this compound will do it has been proven by ex
perineut on many of the worst cases to be found of tho
SCROFULA AND SCROFTI.OLS COMPLAINTS, ERUPTIONS
AND ERUPTIVE DISEASES, ULCERS, PIMPLES, BLOTCHES,
TCMOKS, SALT KHKCM, SCALD HEAD, SYPHILLS ANI>

AND IN DIGESTION, ERYSIPELAS, KOSP. OK St. AXTHeNY'r*
FIRE, and indeed the whole class of complaints arising
Iroru IMPURITY OF TIIE BLOOD.
This compound wi.l be found a great promoter of
health, when taken in the spring, to expel the foul hu
mors which fester in tlie blood at that season of the yea?.
By the timely expulsion of thein mnuy rankling disor
ders 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
sfsted to do this through the natural channels ol the
body by an alterative medicine. Cleanse out the vitiated,
blood whenever you timi its impurities bursting through,
the skin in pimples, eruptions, or sores ; cleanse it whet?
you find it is obstructed and sluggish in the veins;
cleanse It whenever it is foul, and your feelings will tell
you when. Even where no particular disorder is fell,,
people enjoy better health, and live longer, for cleansing
the blood. Keep the blood healthy, and all is well ; but
with this pabulum of life disordered, there can be no
lasting health. Sooner or later something must go
wrong, and the great machinery of life is disordered or
Sarsaparilla has, and deserves much, the reputation,,
of accomplishing these ends. But the world has la-en
egregiously deceived by preparations ot it, partly because
the drug alone has not all the virtue that is claimed for
it, but more because many preparations, pretending to be
concentrated extracts ol it, contain but little of the vir
tue of Sarsaparilla, or any thing else.
During late years the public have been misled by large
bottles, pretending to give a quart of Extract of Sarsa
parilla for one dollar. Most ot these have been fiauds
upon the sick, for they not only contain little, if any,
Sarsaparilla, but often no curative properties whatever.
ID nee, bitter and painlul disappointment has followed
the use of the various extracts of Sar-nparilla which
flood the market, until the name itself is justly despised,
and lias become synonymous with imposition and cheat.
Still we call this compound Sarsaparilla, and intend to
supply such a remedy as shall rescue the name from the
load of obloquy which rests upoh it. And we think we
have ground tor believing it has virtues which are ir
resistable by the ordinary run of the diseases it is intend
edtocrue. In order to secure their complete eradica
tion from the system, the remedy should be judiciously
taken according to directions on the buttle.

Normal Departnwnt —Special exercises are arranged
without extra charge for those preparing themselves as
Teachers of Common Schools. Prof. C. It. COBURN, the
able and well known Superintendent of Common Schools
in the county, has kindly consented to organize the Tea
cher's class, and direct the course to be pursued.
1 He will also be present- to conduct its exercises as often
1 as practicable, and will- delivei frequent lectures on the
; Theory and Practice of Teaching, as also on other subjects
connected with Normal training.
Those persons, therefore, intending to engage in teach
ing for the winter, will find it greatly to their advantage
to be present during the Fall term.
Prof. Coburn's connection with the institution is not
such as to in any way interfere with the discbarge of the
regular duties of his office.
No pains will be spared, on the part of the Faculty and
Trustees in sustaining the high repulatation the institu
tion has hitherto enjoyed, ana in rendering it more wor
hy of future patronage and support.
