BALL OF me FRIRNDSHIP FIRIII COMPA.NT.—
The members of this veteran organization an
nounce that they intend to give a ball on New
Year's Eve, for the purpose of accumulating a
certain sum of money to aid in liquidating the
debt which now bangs like en incubus almost
on their energies end usefulness. Since the
absence of so many of its members, the re
ceipts of the company have been materially
diminished. This absence, too, makes it ne
cessary that the managers of this ball should
throw themselves on the liberality of the citi•
sans for the support of the ball in question.
We otonot commend the Friendship Fire Com
pany to our readers and the patrons of balls too
highly, as one deserving of substantial support
and ret ognition.
The AMENAL iSs4.BArron.—lt was a foolish
and malignant spirit which induced the concoc
tion of the story in relation to loose powder in
the Arsenal ; but Gen. Russetl completely ex
plained the whole affair yesterday, which was
not the character of an explosion that the
Patriot eudeavored to impress on its readers.
The fact is that them is no more danger of an
explosion in the Arsenal than there is of a
collapse of the Lager Beer vault opposite.
All the powder in the establishment is in the
shape of "fixed ammueltion," that is secure in
packages and boxes, removed from all contact
with fire, and located where no possible danger
of an explosion can occur, except it would be
by a conflagration which might consume the
Mr. George Forbes, the Superintendent of the'
Arsenal, is one of the most attentive and relia
ble men in the city, His whole care aid at
tention are devoted to this establishment—his
character as a man is at once security that no
accident will meg from carelessness, and any
of our citizens who desire to convince themselves
of the perfect safety of the migraine in tha
Arsenal,. can be satisfied by visiting that'
establishment and judging for themselves. The
whole statement about loose powder covering
the floor, ike., Is an exaggeration of the mean.: -

A Baran or MB LATH COL. SDANONB.—A few
weeks ago, Mr. Samuel G. Powers, a sutler in
one of the' Pennsylvania regiments, while on
business in Washingtou, accidentally met with
a rebel prisoner who had in his possession a
military field giros, which he represented as
having teen the property of the Colonel of the
Fifth Pa. Reserves. In reply to a series of
inquiries, the prisoner substantiated his origi
nal assertion that he bad purloined the article
from the person of Col. Simmons while that
officer was lying wounded and s helpless on one
of the battle fields before Richmond. His state...
nimbi proving satisfactory and conclusive as to
the identity of the article, it was purchased bb
Mr. Powers tor the sum of $6. Subsequently
that gentleman consigned the glass to the care
of Commissary General W. W. Irvin at this
place, with the request that he should present
it to the widow of the late Colonel.
The General, accompanied by a friend, dis
charged this agreeable duty last evening, at

years—got possession of a loaded pistol, with
which they were amusing themselves, when the

Ryan, inflicting a mortal wound, from the effects

Pomo' lwrwranurros.—This morning a female
character of unenviable notoriety, whose affinity
with ardent spirits has occasioned her almost
daily appearance before the Mayor, for an in
definite number of weeks, received gratuitous
lodgings in the School of Reform for such
characters. Her vulgar, sensual , look, when
brought np for sentence, betokened low and
debased instincts—a corrupt and callous heart,
destitute of even the slightest ray of intelli
gence or emotion.
Two soldiers arrested yesterday afternoon
and confined during last night, were heard
in their own defence. One of 'them had been
pulled for drunkenness, the other on suspicion
of entertaining sundry designs upon the pocket
book of hia companion. These suspicions, howl

Well; some creatures havestomache adapted to
starvation on a mild scale. But it is not that
kind belonging to persons, who, when fifteen
minutes out of bed, come to the breakfast table
and turn up their nose at a fat. chop, or a boiled
mackerel. It top very renseleas martyrdom, is
starving one's self to death, and a silly thing to
declare that you can't eat this, or that you ab
hor that. Whatever is eatable can be used as
food by every being, save perhaps a rare few,
whose stomachaluriresome queer chemical com
bination in fluids and membranes. Exercise
will produce appetite, and that once vigorous
and demonstrative will find a met in the most
vulgar dhthes, so called. Pork and beans on
the plate of a lady who rides in her own car
riage, would be vulgarity. Or cabbage at , the
dinner a verse-writing Miss, would render
her verses ever after commonplace. Still, cab
bage and pork and Beans have much to do with
civlliastiori and society. A change of • diet is
the basis of health, and will do more for red
cheeks, attractive .eyes and "splendid" hair,
than all the recipes in the pharmacopeia.
Don't be particular as to your eating so long as
it is Well-cooked mid cleans There may come
reverses yet: for the most , independent of us,
when the bill of fare wilt be--BreAkfast, Salt
Pork fried and potatoes ; Dinner, Salt Pork
boiled and potatoes ; Supper, Salt Pork cold and
potatoes. The appetite would crave it, would
eat heartily of it, even become attached to it,
as the leech does toalocal inflammation. Don't
starve until you witness the end of the war—
that Is if you can avoid it.
