of the Ut few weeks.
The proclamation of Gov. CURTIS aroused
ca r populace : of course, the gallant Wysox
:&n wa3 astir, and being determined Dot to be
eoouiauded by, or share a command with any
CD e else, he hurried together a Spat-tan band
of some ten or twelve iu number, aud moved
off to Ilarrisburg —encamping there in an cmp
t? house, but uot, as far as we know, ever re
porting his band to the Governor, or the mili
ar? authorities of the State. When the other
levies of the County reached Ilarrisburg, aud
promptly placed themselves at the Governor's
order, the Colouel suddeuly became impressed
(vitb a fear that " a cat was iu the meal tub "
_tbat there was danger of carrying this busi
es of soldiering too far ; that the troops
jyfjrht be illegally ordered to Maryland, where
the red clouds of battle were then gathering.
Ttiese fears impressed few besides himself.
it length, most of his men joined the new
regiment in which the Bradford levies were en
roiled, and moved onward toward the bloody
forav in Maryland ; while the valiant Colonel
took the baek traek up the river to Tuukhan
nock to attend the Democratic Congressional
Conference. Caudidatc TRACY, of course, must
not baek out, at least must uot seem to do so.

Suffice it to say, that Candidate TRACY, like
all the others, came safely out of it, and two

Colonel now (at Greencastle) took his place

"Thev are Making a Pool of Yon."
When I was quite young, I made my first
trip down the river on a raft. As we ap
proached the celebrated Buttermilk falls, we
wert told by those acquainted with the river,
that while running the falls,one of us must climb
to the top of the cabin and hold a brand oi
tire in order to save it from being extinguished
by the rough and foamiug waters. I was se
i'-cted for this important o'nty. Accordingly,
with a firebrand in my hand, I seated myself
on the top of the cabin, and holding it aloft,
listened to the ;oaring waters, which I suppos
ed would soou sweep over the raft. While thus
engaged and expecting every moment to come
to the falls, I discovered a stream of water
falling down the side of the mountain, which
awakened in my mind some apprehension that
- hud been sold. At this moment, I saw a
person on the slice who seemed to be observ
"g with some interest the movements on the
*aft aod paaticularly my uncomfortable ana
embarrassed situation ; said he to me, " young

It was enough, all easily understood. But
the lesson was not lost. In after life I have
many tunes profiled by the lesson taught tue
h? the kind hearted person on the shore.
hen I have seen men who rre honest and
upright persuaded to vote for men in office who
!ia ve failed to receive a regular nomination,
w hose aim is to break up and distract and
destroy, I would say " they are making a fool
't you." When I see candidates go into Coun
ty Convention and ask for nomination by the
nepubliean party, aud are defeated—and
"hen these men are told by the Democrats
• ut it they will bolt the regular ticket and
ine before the people the Democrats will as

hen I see men who claim to be Republi

operations of our armies in the Southwest, was
shot and almost instantly killed Monday morn

There has been a personal difficulty between
the two Generals for some time, and the im
mediate provocation to the homicide is under

guage used by General NELSON.

Upper Potomac indicates that the bulk of the
rebel force i 9 at Winchester, which place is
designed both as a base and a nucleus of op
eration ; and the statement to the effect that
the rebels are still in force on the south bank
of the Potomae probably arise from the fact
that they are keeping sufficient men in the
vicinity to dispute the crossing of the forces—
they undoubtedly wishing to detain our anny

a movement to cut off their communications

FW*- MF.DICINES THAT CURE —One of the
special peculiarities of Dr. Ayer's preparations is, that
they accomplish what is promised lor them. Who, in
ihis community, docs not know that of ail the cougii
remedies the Cherry Pectoral is by far the Lest? Who
that ever uses pills but will tell you Avers Pills are at
once the mildest and most searching most effectual ot
all Did anybody ever hear of his Ague Cure failing in
a single case ? Not an instance lias been found where
Fever ami Ague has re-isted the faithful trial of it. This
may seem a bold assertion, but we are assured it is true.
And stifl more important are the effects of his alterative
called Extract, of Sarsaparilla. One after another, pa
tients come forth from their leprosy, cleaned and puri
fie I into health, by this witchery of medico-chemical
skill. Saturated with the accumulated rottenness of
years, and poisoned by the corruption of their own blood
they could only live to suffer. This master combination,
■purging out the foul impurities, has instilled the vigor of
health, and restore them to the enjoyment ol life again.
If these are truths,and they are, should not our readers
know it ? What facts can we publish of more vital im
portance them them ?— Courier, Princeton, lit).

\ COMPOUND REMEDY, in which wo
Jt\ have labored to produce the most effectual altera*
tive that can he made. It is a concentrated extract of
Para Sarsaparilla, so combined with other substances af
still greater altcrat ; ve power as to afford an effective an
tidote lor the diseases Sa'sanarilla is reputed to cure, it
is believed that sitch a remedy is wanted by those who
suffer troni Strumous complaints, and that one which will
accomplish their cure must prove ol immense service to
this large class of our afflicted lelletv citizens. llow com
pletely this compound will do it has been proven by ex
perinent on many of the worst cases to be found of the
SCROFULA AND SCROFULOUS COMPLAINTS, ERUPTIONS
AND ERUPTIVE DISEASES, ULCEUS, PIMPLES, BLOTCHES,
TUMORS, SALT RHEUM, SCALD HEAD, SYPHILLS AND
SVPUIbITIC AFFECTIONS, M Eltt'T'Kl AL DISEASE, DROPST,
NEURALGIA OK TIC DOULOUREUX. DEBILITY, DYsrkrsia
AND INDIGESTION, ERYSIPELAS, HOSE OK ST. ANTHONY'S
PIKE, and indeed the whole class of complaints arising
from IMPURITY OF THE BLOOD.
This compound wi.l he found a great promoter of
health, when taken in the spring, to expel the foul hu
mors which fester in the blood at tiiat season of the year,
lly the timely expulsion of them many raukliug disor
ders are nipped in the bud. Multitudes cau by the aid
of this remedy, spare themselves from the endurance ol
toul 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 vitiatod
blood whenever you tiud its impurities bursting through
tho skin In pimples, eruptions, or sores ; cleanse it when
you lind it is obstructed and sluggish in the veins :
cleanse it whenever it is foul, and your feelings w ill tell
you when. Even where no particular disorder is felt,
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 Lie 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 been
egregionsiy deceived by preparations of it, partly because
the drug alone has not all the virtue that is claimed for
it, but mote because many preparations, pretending to be
concentrated extracts of it, contain but little of the vir
tue of Sarsaparilla, or any tiling else.
During late years the public have been misled by large
bottles, pretending to give a quart ot Extract of Sarsa
parilla for one dollar. Most of these have been frauds
upon the sick, for they not only contain little, if any,
Sarsaparilla, but often no curative properties whatever.
Hence, bitter and painful disappointment has followed
the use of the various extracts of Sar-aparilla which
flood the market, until the name itself is justly despised,
and has become synonymous with imposition and cheat.
Still We Call this compouud Sarsaparilla, and intend to
j supply such a remedy as shall rescue the name from tho
I load of obloquy which rests upoh it. And we think we
; have ground for believing it has virtues which are ir
i resistable by the ordinary run ol the diseases.it is intend
ed to crue. In order to secure their complete eradica
tion from the system, the remedy should he judiciously
taken according to directions on the bottle.

constant use throughout this section, we need not do
more than assure the people its quality is kept up to the
best it ever has been, and that it may lie relied on to do
tor their relief all it has ever been lound to do.
