ISU The cold piercing winds—the small
flurry of snow—the ice and frost on the pavement in the
morning, all indicate the approach of winter. Very soon
old Boreas will have everything his own way, and it be
hooves our citizens to prepare foi it. There are those
among us who are already making extravagant prepara
tions for the " cold and dreary season," and there are
others—GOD pity them—who are illy prepared for the
emergency. " The poor ye have always among you."—
" The piercing wind the shrinking flesh appal
With sharp incisions—
And everything denotes the approach of fall,
ITFK, CENTS. —This kind of coin, at one time
was looked upon" with disdain, and in many cases, par
ties who received large amounts had to sell them at a
discount. At present cents are in demand, and bring a
good premium. Considering the large quantity coined
at the mint, it becomes an interesting question as to the
whereabouts of the numerous cents which have been dis
tributed by the government. The mint in Philadelphia
coins daily about two thousand dollars of them, all of
which are distributed almost as soon as made ; but still
they are scarce. It was thought that speculation in them
could be prevented by giving only flve dollars' worth to
each applicant; but the effort was a failure, as some per
sons employ a number of boys to wait their turn, and
thus accnmnV.'e quite a pile, which can afterwards be
sold at a premium.
BFfk. THE POTATO CROP —The round potato
crop is likely to prove unusually short in the neighboring
counties in thi3 State and New Jersey. Good round po
tatoes are now selling in this irarket'at SO cents a bush
el. The crop has been materially shortened by drought.
In Missouri the same fact of a short crop i-, noticed. We
see it stated that aun ircds of acres will not yield twenty
'.uuiitds to the acre, end many that will not yield ten
We clip the above from the Philadelphia Ledger, from
which it appears that potatoes arc not so plentiful in
■ iir.e localities as they are in this section. They are tell
ing in this market at from 20 10 25 cents per bushel, and
slow rolesr.t. that. We advise our farmers to bol lon to
their potatoes for a while, as prices v, : !1 certainly 1-a bet
ter. We should not he surprised if they would bring $1
per bushel before Spring.
Jo*We are informed that rcanyof the men
who weie draff cd in this county, on the IClh ins*., have
not yet-nr'ed themselves to the proper officer. Much
curiosity is evinced to know the penalties under Stale and
National lawn Tor refusing to serve when drafted. Ihe
uralt is enforced under an act of Congress of July 17
1802, which provides, among other I Lings, that" ihe pre
sident is a:ilk<rriz;d 'o nl.s ell nectsscry rides and reg
ulations in cases where State laws are defective as to the
enrolment or execution of ihe draft. An act of Assem
bly of I'cnnsylvai ia. passed in l->i2, (65tu section, April
2d,) provides as follows :
" Each and every * * * private of the militia who
sh ill h..ve neglected or refused to serve when called into
active service in pursuance of an order or requisition of
tiie President of the United States, shall lie liable to the j
penalties defined in the aet of Congress of February 2>tli,
li' U.i, or any other acts that may thereafter be passed.
On reference to the act of Congress referred to, it v,il! !
be found to embrace the following points:—
" Every officer, non-commissioned officer, or private of
the militia, who shall fail to obey the orders of the Pres
ident of the United States * * * shall forfeit a sum
not exceeding one year's pay, and not less than one
month's pay, to be determined and adjudged by a court
matial * * and such non commissioned officers and
privates shall be liable to be imprisoned by a like sen
tence, on failure of payment of the lines adjudged against i
them, for one calendar mouth for every five dollars of
such fine "
It has been decided by the Supreme Court of this State
that those who disobey the requisition are not employed
in the service so as to lie liable to the articles of war, but
that they are liable to be tried by courtmatial, under tbe
above act. Such courtmartial must be constituted under
the authority of the United States.
fiST" "THE PF.T OF THE REGIMENT." —Here
is a pathetic and characteristic little battle sketch, which
might pass for an adaptation from the German hut for
the tutorial signature, W. O. EATON, whose genial hu
mor in prose modifies naturally into the simple pathos of
such speaking verse as this :
THE DRUMMER BOY OF ANTIETALT.
Where Antietam's long battle.
Made the mountain-echoes rattle.
As brave thousands fell like cattle
At the butcher's red employ ;
His fragile figure seeming
As be was sleeping, dreaming.
His life-blood iroin it streaming,
Lay the little drumer-boy.
Ah, well a-duy!
His son! had fled away;
They never nmre may see him who once knew ;
And the soldier ears that led
On the music that he shed.
No more shall hear his thrilling rat-tat-100.
By the she'l our ranks that troubled,
His tiny form was doubled.
And through tbe wound that bubbled,
Tbe childish spirit passed ;
Yet no distorted feature
Of the gallant little creature
Evinced the change in Nature
Which bad come to him at last.
Ah, w 11-a day I
As one. at home he lay ;
As if the eradle's peace were felt anew ;
But father more, nor mother.
Nor sister more, nor brother
Shall hear him proudly beat hi 3 rat-tat-too.
Near where the stripling perished
Lay the drum he so much cherished;
And the sticks he nimbly flourished
We his hands descried ;
• li like him was battered
By the missiles when they scattered ;
Yet though they all were shattered,
They had not left his side.
Ah, we 1 a day !
As silently they lay
As that young heart whose throbs were all so true
And their mission fitly ended
With his whose soul was blended
With the magic of their stirring rat-tat too.
Where he fell, the youth was buried .
With the drum and sticks be carried ;
And the swarthy soldiers tarried
And forgot the victor's joy ;
For hard was the reflection
That a regiment's affection
Gould give no resurrection
To the little drummer-hoy.
Sweet blossoms fail in May,
But patriot blood is fertilizing dew ;
His mem'rv 'twill revive
And freshly keep alive.
As long as soldiers love the rat-tat-too.
