A guar PROM A MASKED BAITIELY —The Peculiar:
Warlareof Secesh. --When we alluded to the recent
affair in ono of our public schools, we did so at the.
request of one of the best men in the city, who
gave us a relation of facts which have not yet
been disproved. In all that we wrote, we made
no refl etion on Miss Gill, and whatever she:
may suffer by being thus thrust before the ,
public, she must hold her , anonymous defend
ers and not the Tsisonarn, responsible. Bute
her virtues and accomplishments as a teacher,
(which we freely admit,) can be no offset to
any act such as that which disgraced some of ,
the scholars attached to her school. That act
has made a deep impression on the public mind.
It has developed a domestic relation before
which the true friends of the country may well
stand appalled, and from denouncing which no
personal virtue, no professional accomplishment
or short s o journ in our city of any Individual,
can deter us for a moment.
In regard to this difficulty in the school, the
flash communication in the Patriot this morn
ing, displays a spite and a malevolence which
are in fine accord with the treason sympathy of
the writer of that production. ' He does not
disprove the difficulty by his appeals for Miss
Gill or his soapy defence of the Common
School system, because neither were or are at
issue in this matter. And if there has been no
difficulty in the school, no spiteful display of
treasonable sentiment and feeling—no assault
on the girls who professed loyalty, why was
one of the young ladies who refused to sign the
card, punished with an extra task? Will
" Justice" answer this question. And when he
next writes for the Patriot will he state to the
public whether or not a weekly collection is
taken up in any of the schools, to pay for sub
scriptions to the same journal. While these
interrogatories have nothing to do with the first
disgraceful conduct which we were so loath to
expose, an answer to each will help to show
the public that ev,•n that which was designed
to be the glory and pride of a free people, can,
by evil influences and base parties, be made to
contribute to their disgrace and humiliation.

Manhood.—Who is the Hero 9—The Philadelphia
Pros of to-day says that last summer a young
lad, a pupil In the seminary at Williamsport,
whilst sojourning in that city to pass away the
weeks .of vacation, enlisted in the Anderson
Troop, now in camp near Louisville, Kentucky.
His mother, who is a widow, was then absent
on a visit to a daughter in Maryland. Informed
on her return to Philadelphia what had trans
pired, she wrote her son, who is a minor, as to
whether she should commence proceedings
with a view to his discharge from the ionic°,
and received his answer, asking her to desist
from such undertaking, in these patriotic words:
"Yon wish to know if I like the life. Cer

better pleased than I even anticipated. I did
not entor the army because I thought I would
like it, but enlisted simply out of a sense of

not stand as a casual witness of the downfall
of that flag without raising my arm in its defence;
I could not see our glorious Union totter and
fall without rushing to its rescue. You had
four tons, and out of those four I was the only
one able to obey my count y's call, the only

SERIOUS DISTURBAION-A Recruit of the Regular
Army ,Bayoneited by the Provost Gmard. --Yesterday,
Beyond pfficers tha! Regular Army
were in this city, on a hunt for recruits, who
had been left here "loose," awaiting transporta
tion to Osage. While thus engaged, and the
number of recruits increasing, and their condi
tion being rather boisterous account of the
liquor they bad imbibed, it became necessary
to call for assistance on the Provost Guard. %,
A detichinent of the Guard wail immediatelfr

expiiri l eiiceil. Some of the men were almost
ungovernable, being 'in a condltlon of complete
and maddening intoxication. When the Guard
reached the depoi, one of the recruits became
Perfectly Opmanageable, rushing on the Guard,
and endeavoring to inflict personal injury upon
all within his reach. While thus winning
those kirotind him , tie recruit was bayonati(3d
in the abdomen, receiving a severe and what is
considered a dangerous wound.
In the confusion which ensued, it was found
necessary to remove 'all the' recruits to Camp
Curtin, as it was impossible at the time to get
transportation. The men were greatly excited
by this affair, and,threatened vengeance on the
Provost Guard. Aliwho witnessed the bayonet
ting declare that it could not have been avoided,
and that the member'of the Guard was not to
blame for his action.
Tao Pstovost Ovenn.—Their.Operation in tha
&rats Day and Night: The duty which the
Provost Guard has had to perform has been Otie
involving a great responsibility, in which the
peace of the city has,been at stake, and the life
of even man attached to the Guard constantly
in danger. This every man knowe who ha s
any knowledge of the , serVicewhich is exacted
from and which 4 faithfully performed by the
Proirost Guard. But notwithstanding all this,
we have been called on several times by some
of our 'best citizens, who seemed to think that
certain members of the Guard occasionally
exceed their prescribed duties, by assuming an
authoiity . toWhich they are ' not entitled, in
interfering with private citizens, arresting
civilians and confining them in the• guard
house. If this is really so, there is a remedy
for such arrests, in an appeal to the Provost,
Mazahai; where redress will, be found more
speedily than any which can be afforded

This morning a respectable business man in
West Second street, called to complain, that
while some of the Guard were In pursuit of an
escaping soldier, they , had fired on the fugitive,
lodging thien balds;in the shiitters and door
of his place of business. _This gentleman
'(whose name we are of course ready to give to
the Guard) complained that this reckless firing
was Uncalled for, as the escaping party was not
attempting to desert entirely the service, but
merely endeavoring to reach his quarters with

A Myrna's or TEM Canue.—Bard Times and
Brilliant,' Displays-- Desolation and Death with
Luxury, Pampered Fashion, and Wilful Extrava
gances.—What holds good in other cities is
equally discensible in the State Capital. What
our cotemporaries abroad complain of and are
puzzled with, equally arrests our attention and
confounds our understanding. There are some
things in the world, which the wisest cannot
fully:comprehend or understand, and which it is
difficult to solve by any recognised mode of
reasoning or rule of cyphering. Harrisburg at
the present time presents one of those anoma
lies in view of the prerdence of the war, the
exorbitant prices charged for everything eatable
or wearable, in the scarcity of labor, all taken
in connection with the expenditure that seems
o pervade every clam of society. The streets
never made a finer exhibition of well dressed
women, and it only needs a pleasfmt afternoon
So draw them forth • The markets were never
better supplied, and even the high prices charged
do not seem in the least toliecreasethe :patron
age bestowed upon them, ' •
Silks of the costliest character, and :dres s
goods of the most valuable 'fabrica are' 'to be
found in the ptiblic promenades, and produce
at the highest price goes, home for daily eon
gumption. Fuel ranges at exorbitant rates,
labor remains' at figures that are comparatively
low, yet, this apparently unwarranted extrava
gance continues from day to day, without any
evidence of cessation.
In thelneentinie, everything is taxed. The
check ;by which a man draws his money, the
note on which he loans it, the protest which
signifies its non-payment. He contributes to
the revenue on every telegraphic despatch he
sends to enquire as to the health of a sick
relative; and pays additional if he takes a seat
in the care to , visit one he may never behold
again. He pays for the stamp which must be
affixed to the deed which conveys to him pur
chased property, and is charged an additional
tax on the property he has acquired.
Yet in spits of all this additional taxation,
money certainly seems as plentiful in our city as
in the most prosperous times. Everybody is
well dressed. &ray hand, almost, is ornamented
with jewelry--diamonds spaxkle on bosoms that
never before even dreamed of their lustre, One
of our principal jewelers states that his Bales
are larger now than ever before. He also states
that his' information from those with whom he
deals in New York and Philadelphia, is that the
sales of diamonds and other precious stones had
been larger this, in those cities, than at any
previous season. He Could account for it in no
other manner than that army c ontractors or

FUNERAL OW AN AGED CITIZEN ON DAUPHIN
Counr.—The funeral of Mr. Jacob Mark, one
of the Oldest inhabitants of this county, took
place on Sunday morning from his late residence
in West Hanover township, and was largely
attended by his relatives and friends. Mr.
Mark was born in Lebanon county, but removed
to this county at an early period of his life. He
was for many years a consistent member of the
Lutheran church, and was highly esteemed by
those who knew him well. He died after a
short illness at the advanced age of nearly 78
SOLDIIIIB' Oomsx—ta correspondent thus
describes the coffee supplied to one of the army
camps not yet upon the battle field: " You can
form some idea of the rations it takes to feed
such a body of men, when I tell you that at
breakfast this morning it took eleven hundred
gallons of coffee to supply them, that is, what
the contractor calls coffee. I should like to
have the handling of that fellow ; I would
oblige him to drink three times a day a quart
of his villainous compound. I think he has
begun to add burnt, barley among the other
ingredients. I expect the next dose he puts in
will be a small modicum of strychnine. I think
a very good course to pursue in regard to those
contractors whO concoct these messes, would be
to serve theni as Napoleon . l. used to treat his
contractors, who furnished the soldiers poor
rations—take them out some fine morning and
give them an ounce more or less, of cold lead.
I think it would have a very beneficial effect
on those left. Our contractor, not satisfied with
giving us hodge-podgemera, has left off putting
any sweetening in it, and you can imagine what
a savory liquid it must be."
Tan MACK TONGIII in Honns.--.4 Preventa
tive and a Care.—We printed a paragraph In this
department, yesterday, in reference to the dis
ease of the "black tongue" among the Gov-:
erament horses in the vicinity of Washington.
This morning an army officer called to inform
us that he had seen the evil effects of the same
disease among the horses belonging to the army
in service in the south-west, where at least
$60,000 worth of.horse flesh had been lost to
the service before the_disease could be arrested.
The disease first shows itself in small ulcers
breaking out on the tongue, which, quickly
enlarge and become black, when in the absence
of relief, the tongue literally " rota off," thus
producing of course the most painful death to
the animal. In Kentucky, when this disease
was first discovered among the horses, it was
thought thatit wee produced by the "regulation
bit," which ie a heavy, rough and at beet a
painful piece of machinery to place in a horse's
mouth. But examination and observation
seemed to dispel thishellef, as with the same
bit, horses have been protected from the disease
by using the following preventative :
After enclosing a particle of anafedita in an
ordinary piece of cotton rag, bind it firmly to
the bit, and with this in the mouth of the
beree, - the animal will be prokeeted from eh',
" black tongue." It is of course necessary to
Provestraewciabllncoe suatiasis minosed with
the disease with others in sound health, as it is
of a contagioni character, and horses have been
known to take it that have been stabled where
others have had the disease months before. It
is thought that animals leave the contagion on
the troughs or mangers.
The cure for the "black tongue" is simple
and easily administered. The following ingre
dients are necessary . :
1 ordinary pale of water.
1 lb of copperas.
2 sticks of caustic.
These are dissolved, and the preparation used
by swabbing the ulcers on the tongue of the
diseased animal two or three times a day. The
effect of this sponging or swabbing is, of course,
to cauterize the ulcers, and in a few days the
tongue becomes entirely relieved from their
presence, and the hope restored. When an
animal is attacked, he should be removed im
mediately from all contact with others. If
this precaution, is not taken the disease will be
communicated, to others, and in a short time
every stable hi a wide circuit becomes filled
with horses suffering and dying from the effects
of the black tongue.
—We submit this preventative and cure to
those interested, and ask for it a circulation in
the columns of our cotemporaries, for the bene
fit of the government and the people.

paid a visit to that locality, and found the
representations they had heard unexamerated in

matter of fuel for the winter is there great
neglect and scarcity, although this is not at
tributed to Colonel Belknap, commander of the
pat, as he bonbons as efficient as possible under
the circumstance's by which he is surrounded.
Another great drawback results from the
fact that of the many thousands congregated
at this camp, there is a very large number of
those who are totally incapacitated from any
further service in the army. An early oppor

conduct of the war to make a thorough ex

we can point with pride as an evidence of pros

A" you sick, feeble and complaining ? Are
you out of order, with your system de

symptoms are often the prelude to serious ill

you, and should be averted by a timely use of
the right remedy. Take Ayer's Pills, and
cleanse out the disordered humors—purify the
blood, and let the fluids move on unobstructed
in health again. They stimulate the functions
of the body into vigorous activity, purify the
system from the obstructions which make dis
ease. A cold settles somewhere in the body,
and obstructs its natural functions. These, if
not relieved, react upon themselves and the
surrounding organs, producing general aggrava

Ayer's Pills, and see bow directly they restore
the natural action of the system, and with it
the buoyant feeling of health again. What is
true and so apparent in this trivial and com

deep-seated and dangerous distempers; The
same purgative effect expels theui. Caused by
similar obstructions and derangements of the
natural functions of the body, they are rapidly

Pills will neglect to employ them when suffer

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.
Du. STRILLISO'S AMBROSIA 18 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 dis
covered that will Cure the Diwate of the Scalp, and
cause Me Hair to Grow.
This is to certify that about eighteen months
I commenced using STIIRLIMG'S AMBROSIA.
My hair was short, thin and rapidly falling out.
I had tried 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 I attribute solely to the use of Sreatano's
Annaosta, as since I commenced using it I have
applied nothing else to my hair.
