CURTIN is ieolitew York city, and will be absent from the State Capital - until the end of the week. Setups or Drumm from different camps in this vicinity, are being brought back to this city every day. Yesterday a number , were brought from several of the eastern counties, and to-day others arrived from the north, western part of the State. It has lbecome.a profitable business with the constabulary force of the different counties of the State to arrest and return deserters, Tino %MAINS or Luurr. H. H. Lure, of Captain Davis' Cavalry Company, who died at Nashville, Tenn., will arrive in this city at 2 o'clock to morrow morning. Preparations have been made by the members of the Friendship Fire Company, to receive the corpse as it reaches the city to-night, and the same company have in charge the arrangements for the funeral, to which they have invited the entire Fire Depart- meat, with such of the military of the city as can be present. RENTING HOME TO PROSTITUTE& —Wo have 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. I=l PARLOR ENTRRTAINMRNTS AT BRANT'S HALL.— 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. COUNTY EINPRRINTKNDNNY' Ravom.—The fol lowing extract is from the monthly report of County Superintendent of Common Schools for November : Forty-live schools were visited in the following districts : Middletown, Lower Swatara, Swatara, Susquehanna, Derry 4, Lower Paxton and Dauphin. Ninety-two hours were spent in those schools. Average length of, vis its two hours Two hundred and forty-eight miles were traveled. Engaged officially twenty four days Attended two district institutes.— Met directors and teachers of Swatara district ; satisfactory arrangements were made—so that in reference to length of month, and district institutes, the law would be complied with.— During December would be engaged visiting schools in Lykens Valley. =I Samoan's OPERA House.—Oar citizens have woke up to the fact of the necessity bf a regular place of amusement, and in the above, under the able management of Mr. Sanford himself, who has now given up all connection with his Philadelphia Opera House, we may regale ourselves that Saufoid is our own, and we must all make up our minds to patronize him during the season . Fatensive alteration is being made in all parts of the house, for the accommodation. of the audience ; also the stage will in a few nights present an entire new front. Stars are engaged to appear in rapid succeardon, thus giv. ing us novelty in new faces as well as new pieces, and acts they may bring along. Mr. Brown, we understand, is the first star. A great bill is up for to-night. One of J. D. Rice's operas will be performed, the leading character being sustained by Talbott and San ford. 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 vate business which has been neglected during his absence, will permit. He was called on by a large number of his friends this morning,d zeceinl,t4l/3 iFoultatelatiOn:bf 'who' k io w him, on his release. Peunegibanta Watt teitaitaidt v , wetting !timber 3; 11360,'' 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 artillery. THIII PAY OF TUB MIN DI DUI HOSPITALS.— 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. PRIBINTATION OP A SWORD TO DR. JADISMOORE. 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. HoN. THADIUS ElTavirra; M.

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 home. • For the 2Wegraph.] 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 twenty•fonr bore idler the time of fuleWu= l .

CERTIFICATES 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. MRS. LUCY A. BROWN.
