AN ASSOCIATION OF PICSALIISRS will meet in
the Locust street Methodist church of this city
on Tuesday of next week, and continue in ses
sion two days. The special object of the meet
ing has not been announced.
THANKSGIVING SRN:VICO in the Locust Street
Methodist church will take place in the eve
ping, commencing at quarter past seven o'clock.
We presume there will be preaching in most of
the other churches at half-past ten in the
morning, as usual Those of our citizens who
wish to enjoy a rich musical treat, should at
tend the Methodist church on Thurs lay night.
STOLEN PROPERTY Forma —The clothes recent
ly stolen from the yard of Mr. Wm. Duncan, in
Walnut street, have been recovered. They
were found, tied up in a bundle, on the premi
ses of Mr. Miller, on the opposite side of the
river, a short distance above the Harrisburg
Bridge. Suspicion attaches to a couple of Irish
vagrants, who are still perambulating the rural
districts in this vicinity.
Couons.—The sudden changes of our climate
are sources of Pulmonary, Bronchial, and Asth
matic Affections. Experience having proved
that simple remedies often act speedily and cer
tainly when taken in the early stages of the
disease, recourse should at once be had to
"Brown's Bronchial Troches," or Lozenges, let
the Cold, Cough, or Irritation of the Throat be

rious attack may be warded off. Pablic Speak

A BANE CLOSED.—The Bank of Commerce, lo•
cated in the city of Erie, closed its doors on Wed
nesday last. The Gazette sass it was "in conse
quence of the high price of exchange and ina
bility to procure coin." This bank has never
been in very good standing, and closed its doors
once before, under another name. It has no
circulation in this locality, and we hope such
may be the case everywhere. Its present offi
cers are honorable men and have done every
thing to revive the concern, but we have no
doubt that Its old debts embarrassed them
from the time it passed into their hands.
APPLES AND ClDER.—Another cargo of apples
and cider arrived here on Saturday, and the
market is abundantly supplied. The best quali
ty of apples sell at seventy-five cents per bushel,
or $2 60 per barrel. Cider is worth three to
four dollars per barrel, according to quality.—
This is a new trade, induced by the failure of
the apple crop In eastern Pennsylvania, and the
superabundance in the northern section of the
State and western New York, The trade, thus
far, has been a profitable one to dealers in this
favorite fruit. One man in our city recently
invested to the amount of twelve hundred
ibushels, and is rapidly disposing of them at
Us EDITORIAL TREADMILL.—The Home Jour:
nal thus truthfully describes the editor's busi
ness : "It is one of the hardships of our pro
fession that its working wheels, brains and
hearts, are not allowed to lag for sickness, or
stop for calamity or sorrow. The Judge may
adjourn his court; the school and the workshop
may close shutters ; the mourner may veil his
features, and turn friend and stranger from the
door; but the journalist must forget before to
morrow the sorrows of to-day, must write gaily
and freshly, as a newsmonger, on the trifle of
the hour, whatever burden has been laid upon
that same hour by Providence, or his brain as
a man. It sometimes tries and mocks, as the
world that reads what is thus written would
'never dream of." The public look upon an
editor's labors as the Indian did upon the man
that was cutting hay. He gave it as his "opin
ion" that it was "easy toilet white man mow 1"
THE INVASION Or VAGRANTS continues, and
the lock-up, the county prison, and the poor
house, swarm with them. No less than six
trumpets made application to the Mayor on
Saturday evening for lodgings, and were put
in the lock-up. Henry Croft, from Carlisle,
being out of money and sick, was sent to the
poor house. Michael Miller, from Lebanon,
came here expecting to get a remittance of
Money from Germany. He was disappointed,
"get drunk to drown sorrow," and landed in
the lock-up. Three others, James Gallaher
and Jacob Boyer from Carlisle, and Bill Mur
phy from Reading, came here in search of em
ployment, were unsuccessful in their mission,
had no money, and applied for free lodgings.
Ann M' Donnell, an unfortunate daughter of the
"green isle," has been tramping for some time
in search of her husband, who cruelly deserted
her. She arrived here with weary limbs and
empty pockets, and sought the shelter of the
lock-up. All of these "unfortunates" passed
an uncomfortable night in the cold and damp
asylum for vagrants, came out in a half.frozen
condition yesterday morning, and were turned
loose to resume their begging occupation.
About twelve o'clock on Saturday night three
men called at the Mayor's office, roused the
keeper, and begged permission to occupy the
lock-up until next morning. The scanty sup
ply of covering having been appropriated by
the six previously caged, and the tender-heart
ed keeper fearing that they would freeze, ad
vised them to seek warmer quarters. They
finally concluded to go to Porter's furnace, and
pass the night there in close proximity to the
furnace fire. There is no accommodation in
the way of fire or covering, in the lock-up,
and Council would do a charitable act by ma
king some provision for the half-clad vagrants
who occupy it these cold nights. If Council
refuse to act in this matter, let our charitable
citizens, who have "hearts to feel for other's
woes," send to the Mayor such old quilts and
blanketti as they can readily spare,

PREPARING FOR THANICSGIVENG.—We noticed
two wagons on the street to-day loaded with
turkeys and chickens, for which the owners
found ready sale at fair prices. May all our
readers be fortunate enough to have a fat turkey
for dinner on Thanksgiving day. If anybody
has an over-supply, we would not object to
being the recipient of a turkey for our Thanks
giving family festival. Up to the present time
there is "nary " feathered tenant in our coop.
THANKSGIVING SIIITEII.—We acknowledge the
reception of a "free pass" to a Thanksgiving
Sapper, to be served up at the Exchange Res
taurant next Thursday evening. Davis has
thus far proved a very successful caterer, and
we doubt not the coming entertainment will
add to his culinary reputation. Our epicurean
readers should be on hand, at the time desig
nated, to luxuriate on the "good things" that
will be served up.
WINTER SCENE.—The following verses, which
might pass for emanations from the pen of the
old F l nglislk poets—say of the reign of Elizabeth
—were written by James Smith, author of the
"Rejected Addresses." Every line is a picture :
The mill-wheel's frozen is the stream,
The church is decked with holly ;
"filiatletoe hangs from the kitchen beam,
To flight away melancholy;
Icicles clink in the milkmaid's pall,
Younkers skate on the pool below ;
Blackbirds perch on the golden rail--
And hark, how the cold winds blow 1
There goes tho squire to shoot at snipe,
Here runi - Dlek to fetch a log ;
You'd swear btu breath was the smoke of a l fps,
In the frosty morning fog.
Hodge is breaking the ice for the kine,
Old and young cough as they go ;
The round red sun forgets to aline,
And hark, how the cold winds blow

Indian Summer, has finally melted into win

lighted jewelry, frosted from snow, glittering
rich-hued in ice, with its attendant parapher
nalia of dark and beauteous furs, jaunty and
"killing' cloaks, flirtation-warm parlors, and
all the bracing, comfortable and exciting things
which belong to the jealous old Blue Beard, who
kills off so many fair summers, who nips the
heads from so many confiding, sweet, lovely;
sun-looking, hopeful flowers. The rich seduc
tive grey-beard ! What a cold, cold heart he
seems to have ; and yet how full of varied and
beautiful life, of tree and plant, of stream and
bird, of beast and insect, are his mysterious
caverns ! Perforce, we welcome the gruffty old
fellow. To say the least of it, he is no flatterer !
GEN. CAMERON AND THE CABINET.-Our late
item recommending Gen. Simon Cameron for a
place in Presidr;nt Lincoln's Cabinet, has been
copied and heartily endorsed by most of the
Republican papers in this State. The Erie City
Dispatch, an ably conducted independent jour
nal, contains the following on the subject :
"We are not aware that Gm CAMERON de
sires or would accept un appointment in the
Cabinet, but we nevertheless hope that the ru
mor may prove true. That gentleman's well
known ability will ensure a prompt and vigor
ous discharge of the duties of that office. Al
though we would rather have seen Mr. Cameron
President, and was one of his advocates for ele
vation to that position, we hope that he may
consent to take a place in the Cabinet, where
he can, by his well known business tact, decis
ion of character and energy, add his might in
guiding the affairs of Government safely through
the dangers which now beset it on all sides.—
He is the man for the place, and if tendered we
hope he will accept the appointment for the
sake of the country. It was through' the in.
strumentality of General Cameron's friends,
that Lincoln received his nomination—had
they not have stood united and declared for
Lincoln he never would have been nominated
—hence we say, if he will not accept office at
the hands of the Administration, he is deserv
ing and entitled to the credit of incidentally,
through friends, being the means of Mr. Lin
THE Wu.= Kula seems to have commenced
his reign in earnest. The weather has been in
tensely cold since Saturday. The river is filled
with floating ice, and yesterday the canal was
completely congealed from shore to shore.—
Should the present 'toold snap" continue much
longer, canal navigation will be- suspended for
the season. A few words suggestive may not
be out of place at this time. Many in our city
have comfortable homes, plenty of warm cloth
ing, and sufficient weans to meet every exigen
cy, and supply every want. Bat this is not the
condition of all. There are numbers in our
midst who have no health, no capital, no gene
rous friends, no employment, no strong refuge
from the hunger, misery and cold that are al
ways in the train of stern winter. Let those
who possess abundance remember such. It is
almost a crime, when full and having plenty
more to be filled with, not to exercise genuine,
practical compassion towards our unfortunate,
suffering fellow beings. On the other hand; the
manifestation of this feeling in the circum
stances indicated, constitutes a virtue—a high,
Heaven-born virtue. Mere internal delight
springs from the performance of deeds of mercy
than from anything else. We hope, therefore,
that our rich friends will prepare at once to
serve their poor neighbors—to give them some
little help during the most inhospitable season
of the year. A ton of coal, a barrel of flour, a
pair of blankets, eto., are matters not very ex
pensive, and at the same time sure guarantees
against the vicissitudes of poverty. Let them
be furnished, promptly and heartily, is all
really necessary cases.

INVITATION DECLINED.-A. few days ago Gov
ernor Packer received a letter from the Boston
abolitionists, inviting him to participate in the
proposed meeting in that city on the anniver
sary of the execution of John Brown. The
Governor returned a brief and pointed reply,
declining the invitation, and advising those
who sent it to "attend to their own husiness.'!
He says that "John Brown was rightfully
hanged, Emd his fate should be a warning to
others having similar proclivities."
COUNTERFEIT GOLD DOLLARS are circulating in
this community, so well executed that even
good judges are liable to be imposed upon. On
Saturday morning one was passed upon a coun
try-man, and a fruit dealer of this city narrowly
escaped being victimized. That the fellows
who deal in this bogus coin are professional
"shovers," there can be no doubt, and we are
surprised that measures are not adopted for
their detection and capture. For months past
they have operated successfully in market, and
swindled country people with impunity.
THANKSGIVING. —ln most of the States
"Thanksgiving Day" will ba observed next
Thursday. About this time the turkeys, and
ducks, and chickens, that have been undergoing
a fattening process, will be brought forth to
slaughter; the golden pumpkins will be brought
from the field to be melted down into rich pies;
the cook books will be bunted through to find
dishes fit for American sovereigns on their high
feast day. The housekeepers are already filled
with busy cares of preparation, and the boys
and girls with anticipations of "the good time
coming." This keeping of an annual feast is
one of the best American customs. A few years
ago it was confined to New England, where it
originated, but it has now become national—
every State, we believe, observes it. Rare times
we have enjoyed on such occasions, when all the
family, young and old, were gathered at home,
and the day was spent in reviewing the events
of the year since last we met. Nothing can be
more appropriate than the observance of a day
set apart for thanksgiving to God for the present
Overflowing state of the granaries, the univer
sal excellent health prevalent, and our pros
perity as a State and people. We have no doubt
the occasion will be generally and appropriate
ly observed by our citizens, in compliance with
the Gubernatorial recommendation. Religious
services should be held in all the churches, and.
business of every kind suspended, as has been
customary in former years.
NOVEMBER. —The present month is character
ized by Virginia F. Townsend as "the eleventh
chapter in the volume of the year We turn
to its pages with saddened hearts, for they are
not full of the brightness of the songs of May ; ;
they do not spring with the beauty and vivid
ness of June, and they are not written With
the tropical glow and splender of September.—
November has not been anointed with oil of
gladness as her sisters. The glow and splendor
of their inspirations have not descended on
her, and she writes her story in low, pallid col
ors, and wierd clouds, and mournful
winds breathe along it. Still, sometimes there
flashes out a lyric, sweet and tender, like sun
beams lost out of the summer, or winds which
have wandered away from May ; and our hearts
are stirred within us, and we love the pale-faced
poet. Nov . ember, with a yearning tenderness

STEAM ON THE CANAL-A steam canal boat is
now running in the Tide Water Canal, and the
experiment has proved a decided success. The
boat is owned by Wm. ki'Conkey, Esq., of
Wrightsville, and was built by- Hr. George
Geiger, of Peach Bottom, York county. Her
dimensions are about the same as an ordinary
canal boat, being about eighty-four - feet in
length, fifteen feet four inches in breadth, and
six feet six inches in depth, with capacity for a
cargo of eighty tons, and with a motive power
sufficient to tow another craft of one hundred
tons, which will at all times :accompany her.
The engine, a propeller of twenty horse power,
was built in Baltimore. The wheel is forty-five
inches in diameter, and is so placed as not to
revolve below the bottom of the boat and dig
into the bed of the canal. The smoke stack is
arranged with hinges so as to be easily lowered
in passing under bridges. The fuel used is
anthracite coal. She recently made the trip
from Baltimore to Havre-de-Grace, round the
bay, a distance of sixty miles, in less than
twelve hours, with a cargo of four hundred
sacks of salt. This rate of speed was con
sidered very satisfactory for the trial trip,
though it is evident that in future her speed on
wide and deep water will be at least fifty per
centum greater, or about eight miles per hour,
which rate she attained on the Columbia dam,
during a late excursion. The average speed
coming up the Canal was less than three miles
per hour, though of course in wide and deep
water a better speed was attained. About a
ton and a half of coal was used during the
trip from Baltimore to Columbia. The other
morning, the steamer left Wrightsville for
Philadelphia, accompanied by the canal boat
Caroline lil'Conkey, the two ladened with five
thousand five hundred bushels of corn—her
first regular trip as a freight and tow boat--
The steamer, which is named "J. Edgar
Thompson," in compliment to the able Presi
dent of the Pennsylvania Railroad, is the first
of its class ever introduced on a Pennsylvania
canal, and is calculated to Inaugurate a new era
in canal navigation.

A STATED MEETING Of the State Capital Guard
will be held at their Wigwam, in Eby's build

Ties HEATHEN.—An old clergyman one Sur.-
day, at the close of the sermon, gave notice to
the congregation that in the course of a week,
he expected to go on a mission to the heathen.
At this, one of the deacons, in a great agita
tion, exclaimed : "Why, my dear sir, you have
never told ua one word of this before. What
shall we do?" "Oh, brother," said the parson,
"I don't expect to go out of town." Harris
burg preachers might find plenty of heathen
without going out of the city. There are scores
of them in certain localities, who require spirit
ual teaching, as well as food and clothing ; and
as charity ought to begin at home, we commend
these to the care and consideration of that
class of Christians who profess to be so deeply
interested for the spiritual and temporal wel
fare of the heathen in far-off lands. As a dis
tinguished man once remarked to some ladies
who were soliciting money for missionary pur
poises, "the heathen are at our own doors," an
they clidm our first consideration.
COMP PROCEEDINGB.—CONVIO7ION Or POMN
BERCIER.—On Saturday evening after our report
closed, Join( A. FISHER, Esq., made the closing
plea for the Commonwealth, in the case of Wm.
Poffenberger, Indicted for the murder of Charles
T. Robinson. The address was a very able and
logical one, fully sustaining Mr. Fisher's repu
tation a first-class lawyer. He closed about
treven o'clock, when the Court took a recess
until eight o'clock, after which the Judge pro
ceeded to deliver a lengthy and able charge to
the Jury, which was listened to with marked
interest by all present. The Jury retired about
ten o'clock and remained out until half
past nine yesterday morning, when the ringing
of the Court House bell announced that they
had determined upon a:verdict. In a few min
utes the room was crowded to its utmost capaci
ty by people anxious to learn the fate of the
prisoner. The Judge having arrived, and the
Court being duly opened, the Jury handed
over their verdict, which the Clerk announced
to be "manslaughter." This verdict was an
ticipated by most of the persons who had lis
tened to the evidence. The prisoner heard it
without exhibiting any emotions. He was ap
parently calm and cool as usual. The Court
adjourned without fixing any time for the sen
tence of Poffenberger, and the other prisoners
convicted last week.
Since writing the above, we learn that Pof
fenberger's counsel this morning made a mo
tion for a new trial. The motion will be ar
gued on Tuesday of next week.

This Ointment bears no resemblance to ay et her ex
ternal remedy at present before the world. The mode o
its operation is peculiar.
It penetrates to the basis of the disease—goes to its
very source—and cures it from the flesh beneath to the
skin on the surface.
Other outward applications for Scrofula, Salt Rheum,
Sic., operate downward, thus driving the disorder inwards,
and often occasioning terrible internal maladies.
Nosrox's °mama., on the contrary, throws the poison
of the disease upward, and every particle of it is dis
charged throe the pores.
Thus the cures it effects is complete. Not only are the
sores healed—the eruptions removed—the swellings re
duced—but the seeds of the disease,are expelled from the
flesh ; consequently there can be no relarse.
Victims of ulcerous and eruptive complaints, who have
tried every professional mode of treatment and every ad

I beg laave to call the attention of the citizens of tha
United States to the above Wuras and Liquoits, Importel
by Udolpho Wolfe, of New York, whose name is fama
bar in every part of this county for the purity of hi:
celebrated Boaurnan SCEINAFPS. Mr. Wolfe, in his letter
to me, speaking of the purity of his Wizas and Lieltioita
says : "I will stake my reputation as a man, my stand
ing as a merchant of thirty years' residence In the Ply
of New York, that all the Beaater and WINSB which I
bottle are pure as imported, and of the best quality, and
can be relied upon by every purchaser." Every bottle
has the proprietor's name on the wax, and a fac simile
of his signature on the certiacite. The public are re
spectfully invited to call and examine for themselves.—

We aro happy to inform our fel:ow -citizens that there La
one place in our city whore the physician, apothecary,
and country merchant; can go and purchase pure Wines
and Liquor*, as pure as imported, and of the beat quality;
We do not intend to give an elaborate description of this
merchant's extensive bnsiaeas, although It will well re
pay any stranger or citizen to visit Udeipho Wolfe's ex

Schnapps on hand ready for shipment could not have
been less than thirty thousand cases; the Brandy, some
ten thousand cases—Vintages of 1836 to 1858 ; 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 this country. He else
had three large cellars, abed with Brandt", Wine, fie., In
casks, under Custom House key, ready for bottling. Mr.
Wolfe's sales of :Schnapps last year amounted to one
hundred and eighty thousand dozen, and we hope in lees
than two years be may he equally successful with his
Brrndies and Wines.
His business merits the patronage of every lover of his
species. Private families who wish pure Wines and
Liquors for medical use Should send their orders direct
to gr. Wolfe, until every Apothecary in the land mare
up their minds to discard the poisonous stuff from their
shelves, and replace it with Wolfe's pure Wilms and
We understand Mr. Wolfe, for the accommodation of
small dealers in the country, puts up assorted. cases Of
