Hut when the eutmies oi free government sought to pull dowu this graud ol, temple ol free dom, and treason threateueJ to destroy ihc nation, then John W. Geary, like the gallaut old Putnam of the revolution, left his plow stamiiog in the furrow, aad hurried away to the battle e!d, lo defend his country 's honor. Within tbe brief space of ten days he disposed of all his property, moved his family to Philadel phia, aud reported hiuistif to Governor Curtiu for duty !

On the ihh day of August, 1862, was fought the battle of Cedar Mountain, iu which Gen. Geary received that terrible wound in the left urai, ! which has rendered it almost entirely useless since. Gen Geary then returned home aud remained a few weeks, aud reported again tor duty at the battle ol Autietani, ou the 17th ot Sej tember, beinj absent uulj one month and nine days.

Had it not Lcea for his valor at Gettysburg, York niijjit have shared the fate of Chambershurg. an the Capital of our State fallen iuro the hands of Jx.e.

As the "White Star" was the symbol of victory when borne by the victorious legiun.s of Geary, so vurely shall he retain those honors purchased upon the fields of glory. The men who would rob hint ot his hard earned fame, who are seeking to blast the reputation and blacken the character of one ot our most illustrious soldiers, cannot be regarded as the friend. of liberty or onr country.

The Albany Kniiknbockrr is respnti ble for the to'lowins : One of tlio most I remarkable cases that has ever come tin der the observation of our medical fra ternity has just transpired at. the resi dence of a young man named Abriel, who resides oa First street, J rbor Hill. Mr. A. is a rcitirncd soldier. He has been home something less than a year. When he came home he was sufi'eriug from a niinie bj'l wound through the fleshy part of his right arm. It became so bad that the attending physician talk ed seriously of amputation. This work ed seriously on the mind of his young wife (he had but a short time p-eviously got married ) She cared fur and dressed the arm regularly, and paid every atten tion to it, not wishing to see her husband with only one arm. This was some eiltt or-uiue mouth's ago. Under the kiud care of the wife, whose whole attcutioo was absorbed in the thought of a oue aisaed husband, the wound got well, and the arm was saved Now for the setjuel. 1 be other day the wife of Mr. Abriel gave birth to a child who had one well developed arm, but the other was a btutup, similar to ouc whtc-li the poor wile's mind was impiessed with at the time the surgeons were talking of taking off her husband's. Atiipuialiou could not have produced a more beautiful stump aud what is more, the FCar of the bullet hole, so visible on the lather's arm, was as visible ou the child's arm, at the base of the stump, as if really inflicted by a ball. '1 his is the most remarkable case of ''child-mark" ever fnown. It has at- tracted the atteution of all our leading physiciuus and turocous. The ch.ld is a beaitny and beautiful 01.0, perfect in every j respect, eave be absaacs al tbe arte re ferred ti. A WORD TO SOLDIERS. Soldiers, we wish to propose few plain questions for your consideration. hen you went forth to fight, did yon think the South was wrong ? The Democrats said then, and say now, that the South was not wrong. Did you then believe Jefferson Davis to Le a traitor ? Seven Demoeratie Congressmen from this State said that he is not. Did you believe ihst a man who volunteered to serve his coun- try bad no right to vote so lung as he was in the fielJ 1 The Democracy held that you bad no right to vote in tho field. Do you think that all your officers were un true men who would tty to deceive you ? The Democratic party said so, and this was the argument they used, why yon should not vote. Did you not culist in your country's service font pure motive ? If so, do you think the Deinoctatic party was justified in calling you ''Lincoln hire lings," "mercenaries," So f Daytro think a mart who skulked off into Canada to avoid a draft, or deserted from the army and left you to do not only your own work, but to bear the burden which he should have borne, is just a honorable as you, who have done your whole duty ? The Democratic party say that desertion is no crime. If that is so, then fighting brave ly can be no houor ! Do you think that you fought to destroy tbe country ? The Demoeratie party said you did. Do you think tbe war was a failure ? The Democratic party said it was, without a dissenting voice. Do you think Mr. Clyuier is a true friend of the soldier ? If so, why do you so believe? Did he not denounce the cause for which you fought ? If he did, he said to you that you either were bad men, fighting for a bod cause, or else you were so ignorant that you did net know what you were do ing 7 Did he not vole against increasing your pay ? Did he not vote against tiv itii; tlie thanks of the people of Pennsyl vania tj General Grant for his splendid victories ? Did he ever do anything to lr-fil a soldier ? If -o, what teas it t Did he ever tprak a kind tcord for a tol ditr? Ifgo,u Jicn and ickcre ? If be opposed yo'J and your interests when away in the ILIJ, do you think he can possibly be your friend now ? If so, why ? How then can any true soldier, ot the friend ot a soldier support him for Goveinor ? He has never favored you, how can you sup port him ? Soldiers, think of these things, and when you have answered all these rpucs tions, yon mast be convinced as to which of the two candidates is more c'osely alli ed to your interests, and will best serve you. York 1 rue Democrat. TAKING CP A COLLECTION- Barely have we heard a better story or a better told story, than this, from a rev crned gentleman in Missouri ; The life of a preacher, in a new coun try, from a secular point of view, is hardly as smooth and free from difficulty as a position :u more cultivated and popular communities usually appears to be. Tbe teoiile are thinly scattered here I .,..1 t'tinrn rnonoi'H in dilTerCIlt nUIStlitS. though cbiefiy agricultural. Being col lected from nil parts of the older States, and gathered from every clasa of society, they meet upon the same common grouud upou tern. s of easy fauiiliarty. People who live in a new country generally have a pretty hard time ot it. They live a sort of "rough ai.d tumble lift," wearing out their best efforts in a struggle for ex istencc. Under these circumstances the material eotactimes absorbs completely the spiritual, and tbe people not unfre quently "get so far behind" with the preacher, they bave to be powerfully Btirei up" from tbe pulpit. On oue occasion we had a visit from tbe presidio elder of our district, at one of our quarterly meetings. We had not paid our preacher "uary dime," as the boys say, and we expected a tchortr from the elder. Well, we were not disaj pointed. fie preached us a moving discourse from tbe text "'owe no man anything." At tbe close of the sern.00 he came at oucu to the subject ia hand. "Brother," said he, "have you paid jjruttorJ any thing thi3 year? Noth- ' :n at all, I uuderstaud. Will, now.your L.w , Jive on air, and you oust ' nn that' the idea. He r . . ... ; -- ti. 7fla7-v &V.3& aai have it. StewarJ, we'll take up a col lection now." Hera some of tie audience near tlie door began to slide. ' ; . 'Don't run ! don't run i" exclaijied the elder, "Seward, lock that door and fetch nie the key 1" he continued, coming dowt ont of the pulpit and taking his seat by j the stand table in front. j Tbe Steward locked the (Joor, and" then j deposited the key on the table by tbe side of the elder. "Now, steward said he, "go round witt yoar fast. ' I must have twenty five dol lars ont of this crowd before one of yon leaves the house." Here was a "fix." The congregation were ail aback. The old folks looked as tonished, the young foiks littered. The steward gravely proceeded in the db chirne of bis official auties. The hat was passed around, anrf at length deposited on the elder's table. Tbs eldr poured "funds" On', tbe table', atA counted tbe amount. 'Three dollars and a balf ! A slow start brethren ! Go round again stew ard." We must pull up a beap stronger than that!" e Around went the steward with bis Iia again, and finally pulled up at Le eldei's stand. "Nine dollars and three quarters. Not enough yet. Go round again, steward. Around goes the steward a third time. "Twelve dollars and a half. Mighty slow brethren ! "Fraid your dinners will all get cold before you get home to cat them. Go round ffcain steward By this time the audience began to get fidgetty. They evidently thought the joke wa getting to be serious. But the elder was relentless. A?ain and azaia circulated the indefatigable bat, and slowly but surely, the pile cu the labia swelled to the requisite amount. "Twenty tour dollars and a balf! Only lack balf a dollar 1 Go round again steward !" Jast then there was a tap on tbe win dow on the outside a hand thrust in hold ing a half dollar between the thumb and finger, and a yonog man outside, exclaim ed: "Here, parson, here's your money let my gol oat o there. I'm tired cf waiting for her !' "It was the last hair that broke (he camel's back ;'' and tbe preacher could exclaim in the language of Ike Tattle, "Tbts'ere mrsct'es done." KJTHLXG LOST BY KINDNESS- Nearly half a century ago, when a coach ran daily between Glasgow and Greenock, by Paislsy, on a forenoon, wh;n a little past Bishopton, a lady in a coach noticed a boy walking barefooted, seemingly tired and struggling, with ten der feel. She desired tbe coachman to take him up and give him a scat and sbe would pay for it. When they arrived at tl.c inn in Greenock, she inquired ot tbe boy what bis object was ia coming there. II.; said he wished to be 2 sailor, ami hoped some 01 the captains would engage him. She gave hint half a crown, wislied hiui success, aud charged bim to behave well Twenty years after this the coach was returning to Glasgow in tbe afternoon, on the same road. When near B"sbopfon, a sea captain observed an old widow lady on the ro?d, walking very slowly, fatigued and weary. He ordered t''e coachman to put her iu the coach, as there jras an emp ty Feat aud he would pay for her. Immediately after, when changing bor ses at Btshopton, the passengers wre saun tering about, except the captain and the old lady who remained in the coach.
