TELE KEYSTONE WIDE-AWAKE CLUB will meet

action of business. Turn out !
A SPECIAL MEETING of the Good Will Fire

business of importance will be transacted.
THE UNION PRATER 'MEETING will be held in
the Presbyterian church, corner of Market
Square, to•morrow afternoon, commencing at

CAMERON GUARD. —This handsome military
company is about to be revived, with a view to
participation in the ceremonies incident to the
inauguration of Governor Curtin. A meeting
for that purpose will be held some evening this
week. We hop; therefore, to see the Guard
out with full ranks on inauguration day, to "do
the honors" to visiting military companies.
THE MILITARY AND THE INAIJOURATION.—It is
expected that not less than fifteen military
companies will visit the Capital City on the oc
casion of Governor Curtin's inauguration. In
addition to those from aliroad, the entire
Dauphin county brigade, comprising four or five
companies, headed by Brigadier General Wil
liams and Staff, will be in attendance.
PREACHING IN m ALMS Honsg.—One of the
Directors of the Poor informs us that religious
services are held in the Alms House every two
weeks, by the pastor of the Evangelical con
gregation, and Mr. Mumma, a local preacher.
These gentlemen long since volunteered their
services, and have regularly visited the institu
tion and preached to the inmates two Sabbaths
in each month. It was for this reason that the
Board of Directors declined the proposition re
cently made by certain clergymen of our city.
FALSE REPORT.-It was currently reported in
this city on Saturday night that Cob Curtin,
the Governor elect of Pennsylvania, had sud
denly died somewhere in Illinois, on that day.
The report was incorrect. Col, Curtin, owing
to the severe labors of the campaign, is some
what enfeebled, but nothing serious is appre
hended. He addressed a Republican meeting
at Boston on Saturday evening, and is engaged
to speak at various points in New Jersey this
week, in company with Gov. Pennington.
BALTIMORE COLLEGE OF DENTAL BOGERT.
The Chair of Practice of Dental Surgery, made
vacant by the decease of Dr. Chapin A. Harris,
the late President of the Baltimore College of
Dental Surgery, has been filled by the appoint
ment of Dr. Ferdenand J. S. Gorges, of this city.
This gentleman has been for some years con
nected with this Institution as ono of its De
monstrators. He thus brings to the discharge
of his new duties, in addition to his skill as an
operator, much experience as a teacher. Pro
fessor Austen, the Daan of the Faculty, has
been assigned the duty of teaching the Princi
ples of Dental Science, which formed part of
the Chair of the late President.
As IT wrrx BE HEREAFTER.—The Bell-Everett
party, which made an immense amount of
noise, and which was expected to eat away the
ranks of the Republicans, turned out to be the
most insignificant crowd, in point of numbers,
that ever made a political demonstration in this
State—being scarcely able to muster ten thous
and votes in the whole Commonwealth.—Fenn
Before the late election the Locofoco papers
were most fulsome in their flattery of the Bell
ratty, and by fraudulent devices gave a false
color to their numerical strength. Had they
proved sufficiently strong to have secured the
election of Foster, they would still have been .
good fellows ; but failing in that essential, and
being of no further use to the Democracy, they
are unceremoniously kicked out of doors.
Dorrrearn.—So far as we can understand,
this terrible disease, which is now desolating
homes in most of the neighboring counties,
originated at Albany, New York, and up to
1858 was unknown to medical men. We notice
by our Philadelphia exchanges that the disease
prevails to a considerable extent in that city,
one gentleman having recently lost three chil
dren, two of whom were buried the same day !
A fourth is now down and not expected to re
cover. This disease, so fatal to children, is not
confined to our State, as will be seen by the
following item from a North Carolina paper :
Four died in one family, and others of the
same family were very low at the last accounts.
Two corpses were in the house at the same
time. One little girl was playing about the
house as usual, (although she had had a sore
throat for several days.) She lay down on the
bed, and in a few moments fell off of the bed a
corpse. Another of the same familY, a little
boy, died quite as suddenly, while lying on a
little bed on the floor. Other deaths have oc
curred, and several others are very low.
MAORINE FOR TRANSPLANTING TREES. --A ma
chine for transplanting trees has recently been
invented. It is made of a solid frame of wood
and iron, and may be drawn by either horses
or oxen. The mode of transplanting with it is
this : A trench nome three feet deep is dug ,
around the tree, three or four feet from it, so
as to cut off a ball of earth six or eight feet in
diameter. From opposite sides of this ball
small holes are dug slanting downward and
meeting in the centre, so that a chain can be
run under the ball. The circumference of the
ball is wrapped round with straw and ropes, se
as to secure it against crumbling. The machine
is then backed about the tree, the rear windlass,
which is movable, being taken out to admit of
it. Then the rear , windlass is replaced ; the
chains passing under the ball are hooked on to
the windlass, and the ball is raised by men
working with the levers attached to the wind
lasses. The tree is now on wheels and may be
transported to a considerable distance without
damage, and dropped into the place desired.
TIIE Junron. Wrim-Awanrs having procured
equipments for thirty-five or forty of their
company, will make a public parade this even-.
lug. The members are requested to meet in
the Court room at half-past six o'clock.
A Froaat Fawner., for benevolent purposes,
will come off in the West Harrisburg Methodist
Chapel next Wednesday evening. A rich treat
in the way of instrumental and vocal music
may be anticipated, and we hope to see the
"festival" largely attended. Sea advertise
ment in another column.
DEATH OF LOT EFL CISTHMER.—This morning
we received intelligence of the death of Lot
Bergstresser, Esq., of Berrysburg, in the fifty
fourth year of hie age. The deceased formerly
represented this county in the Legislature, and
was an honest and honorable man. His funeral,
which took place yesterday, was attended by a
large concourse of people.
VALUABLE Isroaxtirrox.—Here is a piece of
information, a little late now, but as winter is
an excellent time to procure the remedy recom
mended, it will be acceptable to many of our
" The best protection from mosquitoes will
be obtained by marrying a pretty woman.
These pests never bite a man when they can
find anything better and sweeter."
MEETING AT LEIVISBERRY.—Tho Republican
meeting at Lewisberry on Saturday night was a
very large and epirited one. About two hun
dred Wide-Awakes—among the number a dele
gation from the Keystone Club of this city—
participated in the torch-light parade. An
excellent address was delivered by Joseph Gar
retson, Esq. The novelty of the demonstration
brought out an immense crowd of people from
the rural districts of old York, and an encour
aging degree of enthusiasm was manifested.
DANGEROUB.—Tbe night trains of the Sunbury
and Erie and Cattawissa Railroad Companies
leave Williamsport at so nearly the same time,
that between Williamsport and Milton they are
in sight of each other, with the head light of
the Cattawissa train occasionally shining in the
back windows of the rear, car of the Sunbury
and Erie train. We cannot imagine anything
better arranged for getting up a thrilling acci
dent. The least detention of the forward train,
by the getting off of a car, or from some other
cause, would afford the hind train a splendid
opportunity to "go in," and smash up things
WIDE Awexce l—To you, in a great measure,
will the Republican party owe the brilliant
success which awaits them on the 6th of No
vember. You have perfected the party organi
zation, aroused the dilatory, and enlisted the
new recruits. But there is more work for you
to do yet. In the seven working days that re
main, much more can be accomplished. Our
opponents hope to catch us asleep on the day of
election, but we must disappoint them. Let ef
ficient ward committees be appointed, and
every effort made to get out the full Republican
vote. We, cem, if we- wur., give a largely in
creased majority in the county, and carry the
city, for Lincoln. Let us resolve do it.
A REPUBLICAN MASS MEETING came off in"
Union township, Lebanon county, about two
miles from Jonestown, on . Saturday afternoon
last, which was attended by several hundred of
the sturdy farmers of that region. Among the
novel features of the procession was a large
six-horse wagon containing thirty-three young
ladies dressed in white, and protected by a can
opy of evergreen, intended to represent the
States of the Union. Following, on horseback,
was a young lady clad in sable apparel, and
bearing a banner inscribed "Kansas." A num
ber of wagons containing various agricultural
implements, with persons at work, also ap
peared in the procession, and attracted much
attention. The procession was a very large one
and creditable to all who participated. Able
Speeches were made by several gentlemen of
Lebanon ; and by Maj. David Mumma, of this
city, in the German language ; and the enthu
siasm was unbounded. In the evening a Wide
Awake torch-light parade took place, (clubs
from 'Uniontown, Jonestown, Myerstown and
Lebanon being in attendance,) and a handsome
' display was made. Most of the farm houses in
the neighborhood were brilliantly illuminated,
and the country for two milee around - was a
blaze of light and enthusiasm. The indica
tions are that little LebiliOn will roll up an
increased majority for Lincoln and Hamlin on
Tuesday of next week.
WORTHY OF IMITATION. —Here is something
worthy of imitation in this quarter. In a west
ern town, recently, a "spelling match" took
place, in which all the children of the county
were invited to participate. The prise, an Una
bridge&fictorial Dictionary, was awarded to a
little girl about twelve years old, she having
"stood up" the longest. This, we say, is
worthy of imitation here ; for what the scholars
of the present day are more deficient in than
almost anything else, is a correct knowledge
of the orthography of the native tongue.
Some modern, patent teachers, even go so far a s
to scout the idea of teaching spelling at all, and
have thrown the spelling-book out of school,
substituting nothing equivalent in its place.
The result is that when their pupils leave school,
they are laughed at the rest of their days be
cause they are unable to spell even the common
words of a business correspondence. The old
fashioned spelling-schools were a great insti
tution in their day ; and, it would be to the ad
vantage of the rising generation if they were
an existing institution. There is no use of
blinking the fact that the acquisition of the or
thography of the English language requires
time, labor and close attention. It is hard to
make this acquisition, but it is shameful and
therefore harder still to be destitute of it.
School Directors could net expend a few dollars
of the public funds mere usefully than in pro
vidieg a Webster Unabridged to be awarded
annually as a prize to the best speller in each of
the public schools; _ and the exhibition that
would prove, by trial, who was the best.speller,
would be quite as interesting, and certainly as
useful, as the compositions, rehearsals, plays,'
atgenerally make up the performance
at the close of a term.

GOING TO SHEPHERDSTOWN.—The Keystone
Wide-Awake Glee Club,. of this city, intend
visiting Shepherdstown to-morrow evening, to
furnish vocal music for the Republican mass
meeting to be held there. Several Wide - -Awake
clubs are expected to be in attendance.
TOWNSHIP lkissrmas are held every night by
the Republicans of Cumberland and York coun
t:es, and the enthusiasm manifested shows that
our friends in these counties are "wide.awake"
and active. Why is it that no township meet
ings are held in Dauphin county, and no effort
made to get out the vote ? Wake up !
Rev. D. GANS, of this city has been appointed

CURB FOR Corn.--Punch gives the following

Wrap your head round with flannel
As low as your eyes ;

And brandy or gin ;"
and repeat the dose as often as may be con
A FAmms.—The Democratic meeting adver
tised for the sixth ward on Saturday evening,
did not come off. Nobody attended, and the
affair proved a mortifying failure. The De
mocracy consider themselves already whipped,
andfare disposed to give up the contest without
striking another defensive blow.
Since writing the above, we learn that no
meetings were held in any of the wards except
the first,, there not being a sufficient number in
attendance to officer the respective meetings.—
Alas for the dilapidated and con-fused De
mocracy ! Now then, Wide-Awakes, "one fire
more along the whole line," on Tuesday of
next week, and the city is ours !
HANGING GAUDENS.-A New York paper has
been entertaining its readers with a long, elab
orate dissertation on the propriety of turning
the upper stories, . of dwellings into Incising
gardens. It statee that as glass roofs are but
little dearer than the other kinds, every upper
story might, without much expense, be turned
into a hothouse, where all the vegetable limn
ries of the season could be produced, without
the least assistance—in the way of weeding,
pruning or thinning out—from the boys of the
neighborrood. ;The idea is to 'cover thli garret
floor with concrete, to prevent water fioralealf.-
ing through to the floor below. The statistics
given appear somewhat extravagant ; for in
stance, where it proposes to put eight hundred
fruit trees on a floor of an ordinary house ; but
the plan certainly seems feasible and likely to'
be carried out. °lf it is, We` shall have all the
enviable delights of Babylonian mansions in our
midst, with the addition of glass roofs—quite a
desideratum in this climate.
SINGULAR Exmostos.—ln the family school
of David Parke, Esq., of Parkesburg, Chester
county, talght by Miss Alice R. Rotcbkin, an
ink bottle, pint size, about two-thirds full, was
placed for safe keeping in the oven of a ten
plate stove. A few days ago, a fire-was lighted
in the stove, the teacher having forgotten the
bottle was there. The consequence was a rous
ing explosion, so violent as ..to break the stove
in:several places, and throw the fire upon the
floor, at,the some time scattering the ink over
the walls and ceiling so profusely as to leave
scarcely a square foot that was not more or less
spotted. The teacher and scholars escaped un
hurt, yet far enough froth. unscared, and with
their faces in a plight which might have charmed
Christy or Sanford, but which happily yielded
without rebellion to the virtue of soap and
water. On the whole it was a philosophical ex
periment of rare interest, and one which the
worthy young lady doubtless availed herself in
the next lesson of the class in that science. It
is however too choice a one to be repeated often.
HINTS TO HOUSEICBSPIERS. —A lady correspond
ent of the Germanic= Telegraph, who has re
ceived a thorough domestic education, under
the training, of her mother, gives some valuable
"hints to housekeepers," which are worthy the
attention of all ladies who occupy that responsi
ble position. She reminds them that coffeewhieh
is purchased already roasted, should be kept in a
close tin chest ; that tea, to preserve its full
flavor, should also have the air excluded ; that
cakes should likewise be kept in a tin box with
a tight-fitting top, and they will keep fresh
three times as long as if left exposed. Bread
preserved in the same way, never need be stale,
so much dreaded by young persons with strong
digestive powers. That cranberries—just now
making their appearance—will keep the whole
winter if placed in a sweet vessel with water,
in a place where the water will not freeze much.
Good fresh rice has a clear, bright look; old
rice is frequently infested with a black insect,
which eats into and buries itself in the grain.
In laying up your stock of lard for the winter,
choose that for the longest keeping from hogs
over one year old ; that from young hogs
should be used first. In making "sauer-krant,"
first scald out the cask, place a few leaves in
the bottom, then a layer of the cut cabbage,
then stamp gently until the juice appears ; then
another layer until the cask is 'full; each layer
should have as much fine salt as can be 'gimped
in the hand. When the cask is full, another
topping of cabbage leaves, then place a board,
loosely fitting, upon the top, and on the top of
that a stone of sufficient weight to press it down
yroperly. Stand away in the cellar. Remem
ber; that in making' Bauer-arty:it' everything
`must be perfectly clean and sweet, just as much
so as in making bread and pies.

United States to the above Wises and LIQUOR.% imported

celebrated SCHUR= SaINAFEt. Mr. Wolfe, in his letter
to me, speaking of the purity aids Wina and limas,
says : "I will stake my reputation es a man, my stand
ing as a merehart of thirty years' residence in the city
of New York, that all the liiratmy and WINES which I
bottle are pure as imported, and of the best quality, and
can be relied. upon by every purchaser." Every bottle

Read the following from the Jew York Courier
FSARlktOtrii Symms eon ONE 215 w YORK mKRCHANT.—
We are happy to inform our ferow-cltizens that mere is
one place in our city where the physician, apothecary,
and country merchant, can go and purchase pure Wines
and Liquors, as pure as imported; and of the best quality.
We do not intend to give an elaborate description of this
merehant's extensive business, although it will well re
pay soy stranger or citizen , to visit Adolph') Wolfe's ex
lonely° Warehouse, Nos. 18. I'o and 22 Beaver street,
and Hos. 17, 19 and Si, Mari; etfleld street. His stock of
Schnapps on baud - ready for shipment could not have
been less than thirty thousand eases; the Brandy, some
ten thousand cases—Vintages of 1836 to 1856 ; and ten
thousand cases of Madeira, Sherry and Port Wine,
Scotch and Irish Whisky, Jamaica and St. Croix Rum,
some very old and equal to any in tbis country. He also
had three large collars, filled with Brands, Wino, Arc., in
casks, under Custom• House key, ready for bottling. Mr.
Wolfe's sales of idclinapps last year amounted to one
hundred and eighty thousand dozen, sod we hope in less
than two years he may be equally ksuccessful with his
Brrndles and Wines.
His business merits the patronage of every lover of his
species. Private families who Isiah pnre Wines and
Liquors for medical use Should send theirorders direct
to Mr. Wolfe, until every Apothecary in the land make
up their minds to discard the poisonous stuff from their
shelves, and replace it with Wolfe's pure Wmas and
We understand Mr. Wolfe,•for the accommodation of
small dealers in the country, puts up assorted cases of
Wines and 'knots. Such a man, and such a merchant,
should be sustained against his tens of thousands or op
ponents in the United States, who sell nothing but imita
tions, ruinous alike to health and human happiness.
