the Capital City use arsenic to improve their

NOTARY Ponmc.—Governor Packer has ap•
pointedrhiliP Seiber, Esq., of Reading, a No
tory Public for that city. The Governor seems
determined to do all be call for his partizan
friends before retiring his present high position
to private life. There will be a chance for
some good Republican of this city to become
Notary Public, when Alderman Kline's term
expires ne i xt spring.
Tan Nnw STEAM FIRE &GINE is to be named

arrival he was besieged by a number of appli

all of whom solicited his support and Influence.

AN EXCITING CHABll.—Last evening a German
Lutcber in the employ of John Paulis, was ar
rested for drunkenness and disorderly conduct,
and assaulting Alderman Peffer with stones.
On the way to the prison the German, disliking
the idea of being deprived of his literty, broke
loose from officer Fleck and ran away. The
corpulent officer started in pursuit, and after a
short but exciting chase re-captured his Teu
tonic prisoner, and conveyed him safely to the
Walnut street institution, where be will re
main until the January sessions.
A GRAND COTILLION SOIREE will be given by
the Harmony Dancing Club, under the manage
ment of Mr. Frank Mather, at Exchange Hall
this evening. May the participants have a good
time, and all go " merry as a marriage bell."
These parties are a source of pleasant amuse
ment, healthful exercise and social enjoyment
to the young ; and when judiciously conducted
cannot reasonably be objected to. We learn
that the soirees of the Harmony Club are
among the most pleasant of the kind given in
One city. "Let the dance go on."
THE MARKET, this morning, was not so large
ly attended as usual by our rural friends ; but
the supply was fully equal to the demand, and
Prices ruled at about the same figures they did
on Saturday. There was a profusion of Tur
keys and Chickens—the former selling at prices
ranging from six to ten shillings, and the lat
ter for two shillings a pair. Three cages of
live Partridges, containing about a dozen each,
were readily disposed of at the low price of fif
teen cents a pair. The. , were " trapped"
Within a few mile i s of this city. We also noticed
a number of Rabbits, alive and dead, which
country lads disposed of at a shilling each.
L SPECIAL Drumm of the State Capital Guard
Will be held at their Wigwam in Eby's building
this (Wednesday) evening, at seven o'clock, for
the transaction of important business. It is
desired and expected that every member will
be present. Those having torches or capes are
requested to bring them to the rooms. The
books will be open for the enrollment of new
members, and a cordial invitation is extended
to the young and active Republicans of this
city to enlist in sustaining an organization
Which proved so efficient in the late cam
paign and which augurs so well for the future.

CAUSE AND EFFECT,—The stringency of the
times seriously affects the item market. Men
and women unfortunately earn too little, of
late, to create a sensation in the ordinary style
of crimes and follies, By and by we shall pro
bably have some thrilling suicide, or awful
murder, or wicked attempt at incendiarism, in
duced by the tightness of the money market.--
As things are now, we must expect only the
pettiest kinds of thefts, or thefts of desperation.
The former will come in due time. We heard
of two or three operations in market this morn
ing, but the thieves managed to escape detect
ion. One of the victims, a lady of this city,
was relieved of a well-filled basket while "dick
ering," in Yankee phraseology, for some poul
try. The other victims were countrymen, who
denounced the whole race of thieves in lan
guage more emphatic than refined.

meeting was opened with religious exercises
conducted by Rev. Messrs Carson and Martz.
The Executive Committee was then called
upon to present their annual report. They
informed the Society, through the Secretary,
that they had been unable to prepare such a
statement as the Constitution requires of them,
In consequence of. the failure, on the part of
most of the auxiliaries, to send in to the Com
mittee their separate reports, as contemplated,
by the constitution of the County Society and
required by their statutes. There seemed to
be the less excuse for this neglect, as the com
mittee bad furnished to each of the secretaries,
by circular, a reminder of .their duty, and a
printed form according to which the annual
statement is to be presented, as follows :
f "Amount on hand, time of last report $... ..

[We here insert this printed' form for the
guidance of those of our district Secretaries who
have not yet handed in their reports for the
present year, and urgently request them to send
in the same without deIay.—SECRETARY.]
It will at once be seen how a compliance
with this constitutional requisition would en
able the Executive committee at each annual
meeting of the Society to present a concise but
complete statement of the condition of our af
fairs, and it is hoped that the officers of the
various local societies will hereafter see that
this matter is properly attended to. The reports
of the auxiliaries, so far as handed in, were
then read before the meeting, and will be found
appended to these minutes. The Treasurer
then handed in his report, as follows :

The President thereupon addressed the meet
ing in a pertinent and impressive manner, de
scribing the object of the Society, detailing
some interesting facts concerning the present
facilities for the distribution of the Holy Scrip
tures, and exhibiting the wonderful progress of
the cause during the present century. He was
followed by Bev. Mr. Martz, who addressed the
meeting in the German language and was
listened to with marked attention and interest.
The Rev. J. H. Torrence, of Philadelphia,
next called the attention of the Society to the
wonderful openings for Bible distribution that
are now afforded in lands long closed against
the introduction of the pure gospel, particular
ly China and Italy.
A discussion then arose upon the question as
to the best method of eliciting the benificence
of our people in this direction, during the
course of which the attention of the meeting
was called by the Secretary to the fact that the
Middletown Bible Society had out-done all the
rest in the liberality of her contributions to
the county Society. Mr. Sendig, one of the
delegates from Middletown, was requested to

SOCIAL FILTH.—We frequently hear corn
plaints of filth on the streets ; but if street
filth was the only filth in Christendom we might
soon be rid of it. It is bad enough, all will
admit ; but as a religious cotemporary truly ob
serves, not so bad as the social filth with which
we are contaminated at every corner. Mon
overreaching man in business, and bragging
about it to a crony—preachers insisting on mo
rality in the pulpit, and in some secluded places
practising the opposite of their sermons—clerks
giving short weight and short measure—capi
talists preying upon the necessities of the un
fortunate man who is trying to save a home—
Judges dodging justice because a friend or
party interests will be served—men of the law
urging on the suit of wrong against right—
officials doing some felon afavor because he un
derstands the machinery by which men are no
minated and kept in office. This is the kind of
filth that mars existence and debilitates the
social system. The man who converts dogs
into sausages is despised—but the gent who
purloins the last dollar of the orphan in a busi
ness way, is respectable and honest. If there
was less preaching about brimstone, and more
attacks made by preachers on the despicable
tricks and knavery of men, churches would be
visited by larger congregations; and folks would
have fewer compunctions of conscience. If
you have clean men, your streets will be clean;
while mere office holders will bury you, not
only in the mud of the earth, but in the slush

A CARD TO THE LADIES
DR• DUPONCO'S GOLDEN PILLS
Infallible in correcting, regulating, and removing ail
obstructious, front whatever cause, and al
ways euccesaful as a proven.
THESE PILLS HAVE BEEN USED BY
the doctors for many years, both in Prance and
America, with unparalleled success in every case ; and
he is urged by many thousand ladies who used them, to
make the Pills public for the alleviation of those suffering
from any irregularities whatever, as well as to prevent
an increase of family where health will not permit it.—
Females particularly situated, or those supposing them
selves so, are cautioned against these Pills while in that
condition, as they are sure to produce miscarriage, and
the propriet r aseumcs no responsibility after this admo
nition, although their mildness would prevent any mis
chief to health—otherwise the Pills are recommended.
Full and expliat directions accompany each box. Prise

Poet Office, can have the Pills sent free of observation to
any part of the country (confidentially) and "free of pos

N. B.—Look out for counterfeits. Buy no Golden Pills
of any kind unless every box is signed S. D. Howe. AU
others are a base Imposition and unsafe; th4refore, as
you value your lives and health, (to say nothing of be•
log humbugged out of your money,) buy only or those
who show thu signature of S. D. Howe on every box,
which has recently been added on account of the Pills
being counterfeited.- de3•dwaewly.

Read the following from the Ncw York Courier :
ENORMOUS BUSINESS roe ONE New Yoga aixaects_vr.—
We are happy to Inform our fel - ow-citizens that tnere 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
merchant's extensive business, although it will well re
pay any stranger or citizen to visit Udolpho Wolfe's ex
tensive Warehouse, Nos. 18. ICI and 22 Beaver street,
and Nos. 17, 19 and 21., Mars etfirld street. His stock of
Schnapps on hand ready for shipment could not have
been less than thirty thousand eases; the Brandy, some
ten thousand cases—Vintages of Ha 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 this country. He also
had three large cellars, filled with Brandy, Wine, tc., 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 he may be equally isuccessful with his
Brrndies and Wines.
His business merits the patronage of every lover of hte
species. Private families who wish pure Wines and
Liquors for medical use should send their orders direct
to Mr. Wolfe, until every Apothecary in the land mato
up their minds to discard the poisonous stuff from their
shelves, and replace it with Wolfe's pure Wins and
We understand. Mr. Wolfe, for the accommodation of
small dealers in the country, puts up assorted cases of
Wines and Liquors. Such a man, and such a merchant,
should be sustained against his tens of thousands of op•
ponents in the United States, who sell nothing but imita
tions, ruinous alike to health and human happiness.
