been appealed to by the people in some of the
most respectable portions of the city to call at
tention to the fact of certain landlords renting
houses to prostitutes, to the scandal of decent
people, and the disgrace of genteel vicinithis.
It may become our duty some day to give the
names of the owners of property thus occupied.
As the fact now exists, it is certainly a cryin:
shame that men who profess decency and even
Christianity, should thus attempt to put money
into their purses.
Mr. R. Johnston, with his excellent company,
will commence thee entertainments at the
above beautiful ball this evening. The per
formances will be of a high and amusing nature,
and the pieces selected from the best English
and French writers. We are promised that
every care will be taken that nothing in the
performances shall give offence to the most
fastidious. The company, we are sure from
what we know of it, cannot fail to please and
attract, and under the able management of Mr.
R. Johnston who has had large experience in
the Dramatic World, we feel assured that their
stay amongst us will be a prolonged one.

AWvAL OP MAJ. Joansw,Maj. Thomas J.
Jordan, of the Ninth Pennsylvania (Lochiel)
Cavalry, arrived in this city this morning by the
last night train from Baltimore. Maj. Jordan
has been in the hands of the enemy for about
five months, having been surrounded and cap,
tared while on a scouting expedition in Ken
tucky. We may write that he was captured
alter a gallant resistance, having been literally
overpowered by overwhelming numbers. Dur
ing Major Jordan's captivity he was moat of
the time in close confinement, and treated with
a double severity on account of the false story
circulated respecting his conduct and course
towards the rebels and their families. While
Maj. Jordan made no concealment of his war
fare on men and his determination to continue
at war with all rebels, he was yet able to con
vinde the rebels before his release that he never
wail guilty of an act of injustice or a deed' be
neath a soldier while in the service of the
country, and the rebels received the proof
with the satisfaction of men who are convinced
of the honor and integrity of a soldier. Maj.
Jordan was relieved from all charges touching
his violation of the usages of war, upon his
own statement by order of Jeff. Davis.
Maj. Jordan looks as if be has suffered se
verely, and yet he is resolved to return to his
command as soon as the arrangement of pri

his absence, will permit. He was called on by
a large number of his friends this morning,d

A Daorauortva Bari.—The Norristown
Herald learns that a young man of, talent and
ingenuity, in that town, has invented a very
ingenious and deadly instrument in the shape
of a bullet. It Is contended by the inventor's
friends that the bullet, after being fired from
a rifle or musket, will enter the body of a man
and explode, causing instant death, and then
[sibs through the man immediately behind him,
and so on. We are not informed whether the
inventor has a patent for it or not. We refrain
from giving a description of its construction, as
the rebels might steal the patent and appropti
ate it to their advantage. It appears to us it is
as destructive as shell from cannon, while it is
not so expensive, and a man can move over
muddy roads, with a rifle over his shoulder and
his cartridge box filled with this destructive
ammunition, more easily and faster than heavy
Our notice, yesterday, in reference to the
pay of the volunteer nurses in our hospitals,
has elicited the fact that a large portion of the
sick and wounded men in the same hospitals
are also neglected in this particular, and that
for months these men have gone without their
well earned pittances. - This morning two
wounded heroes, victims of the Antietam
struggle with the minions of slavery and the
allieir of Democrecy, called at our sanctum to
beseech us to write and print a word in, behalf
of the sick and wounded men who are deprived of
their pay solely by the negligence of the officials
in the disbursing officer at this post. They assur
ed us Maj. Lyons had intimated that all which
was necessary to 'secure the immediate payment
of the soldiers in the hospitals, was the sign
ing of certain rolls in , the mustering office. An
appeal was made to that office to secure this
little favor, but the wounded men who made it
were insolently ordered to "begone" by one of
the clerks in attendance, with the admonition
that "I don't want to be bothered by such
fellows." The men who made this statement,
assured us on the honor of soldiers that it.
was true, and declared with sorrow in their
voices that their families were almost starving
for the want of the necessaries which the
money due them from the gowirnment would
provide. If the statement of the wounded
men who visited our sanctum is true, and we
have no right to question their veracity, some
one who is liberally paid by the government to
discharge a duty faithfully, is guilty of a dirty
and a disgraceful wrong.
IMMOICINO Comm.—Fatal Railroad 2k:eldest
Michael Armstrong, a workman on the track
of the Philadelphia and Erie Railroad,, stationed
at the Muncy depot, was run over and killed by
the Catawissa freight train, on Wednesday
night last, near the depot. It appears that he
and three other workmen, Michael Mulligan,
Thos. Collins and Martin Lynch, were called up
in the night to repair a broken rail, and were
in the rear of the freight train on a hand car.—
After the freight train arrived at the depot, it
became necessary to back down for some pur
pose, which it is alleged was done without giv
ing the usual titerficitiurtheillicffillifflitind
car who were coming up, did not for some rea
son distinguish the red light on the rear car, or
see the backing train, until they came in colli
sion with it. They jumped to save themselves,
but Armstrong fell upon the track and was in
stantly killed. Michael Mulligan had his collar
bone broken, and Thomas Collins was so seri
ously injured that he is confined to his bed.—
Lynch escaped unhurt. An inquest was, held
on the body of Armstrong, and the verdict of
the jury was to the effect that the deceased
came to his death through the carelessness of
those in charge of the freight train. Armstrong
leaves a wife and seven children in Wayne
township, Clinton county.—A fellow recently
stole three oxen from a farmer on Lycoming
creek, drove them to 'Uniontown where he sold
them. Bang too tired to proceed on his jour
ney, he went to bed, when he was arrested by
an officer from Lyooming county. Stealing
three fat oxen is one of the latest feats of thefts,
and was rather a big load to carry off.
This gentleman was the r2cipient of a magnifi
cent sword and belt, presented him by the officers
of the 17th Pennsylvania Cavalry, of which
he is Assistant Burgeon. The presentation was
made at Camp McClellan, yesterday afternoon,
the 2d inst., being the Doctor's birthday.
Captain Fitzgerald distinguished himself by a
complimentary speech on the occasion, setting
forth the estsem in which the Doctor is held by
himself, and the officers making this hand:-
some donation. Dr. Moore responded appro
priately, and, in a few words, with much feel
ing, gratefully thanked them for the honor
and beautiful gift conferred upon him,
pledging himself -to stand by the officers and
men of this fine regiment, as the participant of
their fortunes; and promising to continue the
discharge of his duties to the best of his abili
ty. He then read the following verses, his
owacomposition, which were well received:
'2l) the Officers of the 17th Pennsylvania Onalry, on
the Presentation of a Broad and Bell, by Immo
Moore, Assistant Surgeon:
Your gifts of a belt and a sword,
So handsome, I grateful receive ;
Your expratiOns so kind, every word
Affects me, you well may believe.
No vanishing sentiment, traced
Like characters written in sand,
Is inscribed, that can soon be effaced
From my heart, which begins to expand.
Which is filled with a warmth and a glow,
Of friendship divine from above,
Which causes the tears to o'erflow,
Welling up from the fountain of love.
When the belt is all torn to a shred,
The sword and inscription shall last
When all our compatriots ore dead,
This deeply prized sword shall lay past.
And wondering people shall say
As it lies in my archives secure,
"Look here what was given one day
As a present to Grand-papa Moore
Of a Cavalry regiment was he,
The Seventeenth 'two called of Pa.,
Full of valor and high chivalry,
Soul of honor, which at the time lay
In the camp thatikelellan'e name bore,
Brave officers, good men and true,
Not inferior to heroes of yore,
Gave this gift highly prised, as is due."
Thus, with pride, such as now will remain
Forever, this proof of esteem,
Beunrred to again and again,
And nought but respect will they deem.

Came Cuutos :—As the:ladles generally did not
attend the last monthly meeting, at which
time statements were made relative to what
had been done in the last, and arrangements
made for the ensuing month, the daily news
paper seems to be the only direct avenue through
which we can reach the members of the asso
ciation. This article, however, is intended
exclusively for those who have pledged them
selves to serve..ia tint 4401 , kitchen during
the week.
It is well known to the association that Mr.
Wm. Colder has kindly furniihed a conveyance
to the ladies, all summer, free of charge, in
which they and the articles they prepand were
taken out to camp daily. He has still more
generously lately consented to furnish those
going to the kitchen with a carriage to and fro
daily, Ant owing to the want of punctuality in
the ladies the driver has bean obliged to fail in
the agreement. All muet see that we have no
right to trespass upon good nature and put Mr.,
Colder or- his driver to ineenvenience by an
unnecessary delay. There is no: difficulty in
meeting the appeinmenty if the ladies will but.
p rac ti ce a fink management and positive &ac
tuality. The carriage be at the room at 9
o'clock At. a., to take out those whose day it is
to serve, and the business of the kitchen must
be closed these short days by 4 o'clock P. X.,
when they will by the same means be conveyed

Ma. Encroa :---I3elieving that yon would not
intentionally wrong a Christian congregation
either privately or through the wide circulation
of the Ternown, I beg the use of a little space
in your columns. In your article on the 30th
alt., you say, "Lately this secession sympa
thizer has discovered that ; one of our ministers
0 0 never alludes to the cum
try in his prayers or his sermons," etc No
name was given, and it was thought best to let
'it remain unanswered, tor it is humiliating
that a church of God shonld be dragged before
the public by a political print. The article in
yesterday's Taisonsminiwever, makes it proper
to take some notice of the matter. Yon say "a
Christian Minister , receives a handsome present
to keep silenee, when wicked men are employing a
huge wickedness "as an engine for destroying
his country ;" yen alanwarn "Christian con
gregations to take ruitk‘e t with whom do you
with your pastors to associate, and as all:this
is based upon &published letter hi another pa
per, it publiclY casts a stigma upon the lie
tormed Church of this city. From these ex
tracts the public would very naturally conceive
that in the German Reformed Church siker:e is
kept, that no prayer ascends from the pulpit for
our President or our country, and that in the
sermons preached no allusion is made to our
country, and what stigmatises the church
is that you implicate (by fair inference) that
the congregation are quietly allowing such
a course of conduct ; and the paltry
gift of fifty dollars, by a man of wealth
you declare in your iet article to be " a straw
showing which way the - wind blows, and that
money makes the mare ,go." Now, what are
the facts? Simply, that from the commence
ment of the war, there has scarcely been a di
vine service held in the "Reformed Church in
which either our beloved President, our coun
try, our army, or our navy have not either in
part or collectively been remembered at the
throne of grace. Instead of "no allusion to
our country " in the sermons, we have bad
several entirely devoted to this subject, and
many others in which our country has been re
ferred to.
As a congregation, none in this city has
in a quiet, unpretending way, exhibited more
tree patriotism, and this is said without
any improper feeling, for all have done nobly.
Our lecture rooms have been repeateily in use
by our soldiers, and after the battles in Mary
land our vestry:was the very first to offer to the
authorities freely, the use of the same rooms
for hospital purposes, which offer, as all know,
was accepted, and the rooms ever since occupi
ed by the wounded. On that memorable Sab
bath, the 21st of April, 1861, the vestry held a
special meeting, and offered the use of their
property to the Governor, and at the same time
unanimously voted that the Star Spangled Ban
ner should be unfurled from the dome of the
church, as a token to the whole community
that whatever might betide us, we esteemed
of country second only to our love to
God, and that we pledged ourselves true to
ley, as history proves our ancestry have always been.
The Reformed Congregation is loyal to the
heart's core. In proportion to its membership
it has as large a number. of representatives in
the army as ady other church in the city ; and
no man who would f.til to'pray and preach'for
the' American Union, and for those whoVitand
at its helm, would be tolerated as its pt*rifor

HEAD OF HAIR is a crown
A of glory. With proper care and culture
it will last as a protection to the head as long
as the hail's do to the fingere. of' the eyelashes
to the eyes. &rEstaio's Auturears is the only
article yet discovered that will bring about the
desired results. It is a prepUration the result
of science and experiment ; the science point
hg out what was needed, and experiment find
ing the required properties in certain roote,barks,
and herbs. It has consumed a long time in its
preparation, has been tested by persons of most
undoubted reliability in this city, and is by them
pronounced perfect, and the only satisfactory
article, and is now offered to the public. The
proprietors, deterpn to give itethe most
thorough tests, practi ces and chemical, and now
certain that it will make the hair. grow luxuri
antly on Bald Heads, Preventing Grayness and
Baldness, Reinvigorating and Beautifying the
Hair, rendering it soft and glossy.
Da. ErrsamaG's AMBROSIA is a stimulating,
oily extract of roots, barks, and herbs, and,
aside from its neatness, permanency, and gloss,
it is-medically adapted to preserve and add to
the beauty of the hair. The only article yet die
leavered that tell Cure the Disease of the Scalp, and
cause the Hair to Grow.
This is to certify that about eighteen months
ago, I commenced using &ammo's AMBROSIA.
My hair was short, thin and rapidly falling out.
I hadtried many Hair Tonics, Invigorators, &c.,
without receiving any benefit. Soon after using
the Ambrosia, my hair ceased falling out, and
commenced growing so rapidly as to astonish
me. Now my hair is thick, soft, and glossy,
and is five feet four inches in length—when let
down reaching to the floor. This wonderful
result attribute solely to the use of &AMBLING'S
Arantosnt, as since I commenced using it I have
applied nothing else to my hair.
Sworn to before me this 15th day of April, 1861.
