Our ocountry cowins" should be on hand in season to see the sights. The hour of parade will be announced hereafter. Macrs.—The preacher thief, Josiah B Hicks, alluded to in our last issue, is now in prison. He was arrested at Fredericksburg, Lebanon county, by officer Fleck, of this city, brought here yesterday afternoon, and commit ted to answer the chirge of larceny. At the time of his arrest he had on the coat with the theft of which ho stands charged. This model exhorter is likely to be deprived of his personal liberty for some time to come. He might act in die of capacity of Chaplain during his so journ in the Walnut street institution. TUE JONESTOWN RAPPING& —Wre learn that the "spiritual" communications with Miss Moyer, of Jonestown, alluded to in previous issues of this paper, have re-commenced. Among the various items of intelligence recently imparted by the spiritual visitor was the joyful news tbat she was the medium by which a large sum of money, concealed in the earth under the hearth of the old house, could be found. But after digging to some depth, without success, she concluded the work was sinful, and relin quished it. We are disposed to regard this whole affair as a piece of well played jugglery. =:::=1 A Rom AT Leaoa.—A couple of months ago complaint was made against two men of this city, named Dasher and livid), for stealing grain from Mr. Levi Care, at Manacle The former was arrested and bound over for trial, but the latter escaped, and is still at large. At the last term of Court the grand jury found a true bill against the parties, but the trial of the case was postponed until Urich could be arrested. He is said to be in Lebanon county, but all efforts to capture him have thus far proved abortive. This fellew Urich has a fam ily residing in the sixth ward, who are report ed to . be in destitute circumstances. His ini quities should not be visited upon the wife and children ; and if they are really in a suffering condition, relief should be extended to them. REPORTED DEATH OF A FORMER CITIZEN OF HAP, ILIEBURG. —We learn that a letter has been re ceived here from Orange Springs, Marion Co., Florida, announcing the death, at that place, of Mr. Wm. Schabbinger, formerly a resident of this city. The deceased was for several years employed as bar-keeper in the old "Washington House," and subsequently officiated in the same capitcity wader Col. Coverly. For a few years past he has resided in Philadelphia city, and re cently visited the South indulging the hope that a change of climate would restore him to health, He was a young man of fine social qualities, and highly esteemed by a large circle of ac quaintances in this city. It is probable that the Masonic fraternity, to which the deceased be longed, will have his remains brought here for interment in the cemetery. &mum FEOTIVAL9.—The present is the month of Church Festivals or Anniversaries, and two have already occurred This, the 21st, is the day of St. Thomas, who promulgated Christianity among the Persians!, Medes, Per thians and Armenians, and was stoned to death by the Brahmins. Christmas, or the day of the nativity of our Saviour, is already foremost in the hearts of the young folks, and not entirely absent from the thoughts of older persons. St. Stephen's day occurs on the 26th. All theo logians know full well that he was the first who suffered for a steady adherence to the faith of the Saviour. Added to this its the day of St. John the Evangelist, which occurs on the 27th. Oa the 28th occurs Candlemas, or Holy Inno cents' day, in commemoration of the slaughter of the innocents by that despicable potentate, Herod, The last religious festival occurs on the 81st, the last day of the month, namely, St. Sylvester's day. He was a Pope, and re ceives the credit of establishing ceitain rites in the Roman Catholic Church, as well as increas ing its benevolent institutions. A JITVRNILE SAMARITAN.—Last evening a bright-eyed, intelligent lad, (whose name we have since learned is John Armstrong,) while Passing along Canal street, saw a well-dressed man lying drunk on the pavement. "That is shameful," said he to a couple of juvenile com panions, "let us arouse the poor man and take him to a place of shelter." The boys agreed to the proposition, and after a deal of shaking succeeded in rousing the man to a state of con sciousness. His first disposition was to attack the lads, but little Johnny spoke so kindly to him, and seemed to take such an interest in him, that the miserable victim of liquid poison finally yielded to his persuasions. Johnny held him up, brushed the dirt off his clothes, and with his comrades started to lead him away.— Other boys gathered around, and one of them espied a bottle of whiskey which the drunken man had left behind. "Hurra !" he shouted, "here's a bottle of whisky ; now, boys, we'll have some fun." "No you won't I" indignant ly shouted Johnny ; "its bad enough that men should drink whisky, and not boys. Give me the bottle." Snatching the "stuff," as he termed it, he uncorked the bottle and emptied its contents on the street. Then, returning to to his charge, he conducted the staggering stranger to the nearest tavern, and saw him comfortably provided for. This young Samari tan set an example that the police officers, and many others, would do well to follow. He is a good boy, a noble boy, with a pitying yet courageous heart. The father of Johnny Armstrong bas reason to be proud of such a son. WANTRD.—A young Marl who is folly corn pent and willing to make himself generally useful in a large store. The best recommen dations required. Apply at this office. THE UNION PRAYER MEETING will be held in the Presbyterian church, corner of Market Square, tomorrow afternoon, commencing at four o'clock, as usual. Guar Daops of every flavor, Cream Chocolak e, Imitation Fruits, &c., together with the largest and most complete assortment of French Con fectionaries ever offered for sale in this city, bas been received at BANNVAUT'S. Persons have only to call to be suited, and a general invita tion is extended. SUNDAY SCHOOL CHRISTMAS FESTIVALS.—We learn that the officers and teachers of some of our Sunday Schools are making preparations to give the scholars a Christmas treat of cakes, candies and other goad things. This custom has long been regularly observed in various sections of the State, and it is one to be com mended. We suggest its adoption by all the congregations in this city. I== A THIEF DETECTED BY CHICKENS. —A grain thief was detected at Pittsburg, the other day, by means of some hens, who followed a trail of scattered grain from the railroad depot, where it was stolen, to the house of the thief. The movements of the fowls were watched, and on searching the man's house the stolen grain was found and recovered The thief was ar rested and imprisoned. Tan BAND CONCERT comes off to-morrow even. ing in Brant's Hall. All citizens who feel an interest in sustaining a good Band in our midst, should purchase tickets and patronize the con cert. Those who do so will be pleasantly en tertained. The members of the Band will be assisted. by Messrs. Knoche and Haas, two ac complished Pianists, and by Weber's String Band and the Aurora String Band. A celebrated vocalist of this city has volunteered his ser vices for the occasion, and will entertain the audience with several new and popular songs. The object of the concert being a commend able one, we hope to see a crowded house. HONEST LABOR. —All the honest labor, be it the merest handiwork, brainless and mechani cal drudgery, dignifies human life. Better is it to break stone or to turn a mangle than to do nothing. Good roads and clean linen are products of human industry which we need not be ashamed of having a hand in creating. Let us do the best we can. If it be not permitted us to do work of one kind, let us brace our selves up for work of another. And to all of the great guild or brotherhood of workmen let us hold out a band —a hand of assistance if need be--anyllbw a hand of fellowship. If the work be of much account in the world's eye, be thankful ; if of little, be content. A SUGGESTION.-Our City Fathers might do a great amount of good, and themselves much credit, by voting a weekly appropriation to en able the keeper of the lock up to buy bread for the half-starved wretches who nightly seek shelter there. This outlay now devolves upon the kind hearted Mayor, in his private capacity, and the burden is too oppressive to be borne by any one individual. In Lancaster and Reading provision is made by the city authorities to feed the hungry wayfarers who lodge in the station-houses, for want of means to procure other accommodations, and a similar system should be inaugurated here. "Cnaimass is Anton Hsaz!"—How the heart of childhood bounds at the sound! What visions of toys, cakes and caies glide through their imagination. Who would not be a child, if for nothing more that to feel the wild thrill of ecstacy that animates the hearts of the little ones at the approach of this season of festivity and joy. "Christmas is almost here !" With what eagerness it is uttered ! 0, for the bright yet illusive dreams of youth, when the heart was free from care, and the tempter had not invaded the sacred precincts of the pure soul ! 0, that we might throw off the burden of years and once more revel in the delights of the Eden we have left behind ! How the weary man of the world longs for the refresh ing pleasures of youth—those dreams of boy hood long since laid aside for the stern reali ties of life ! How he longs to stand within the enchanted circle ! But no, it cannot be. Hap py, joyous childhood, we look upon you with mingled feelings of sorrow and regret—with sorrow, because of your evanescent nature ; with regret, that we have passed your portals and bid adieu to all the bright fancies that are peculiar to the hey-day of youth. 11 0 h I would I were a boy again, When every hour seemed two or three.' ' Wnoxa.—The son of a high official was ar rested at Harrisburg last week in a disreputa ble house, but afterwardis released. This is a great error in the administration of justice, as instead of the poor devils who too often find themselves in jail here and elsewhere, it would be far better if those called respectable were committed to that institution as examples to o thers.—Lewistown Gazette The "respectable" rowdies--and they consti tute a large class—do pretty much as they please in this city. They can get drunk, make night hideous with their revels, and play the blackguard with impunity. It is only rowdies of the lower class of society who are hunted up by our vigilant police and lodged in the lock up or prison. Not long since we saw an officer arrest a partially intoxicated and inoffensive countryman ; while but a few paces in advance of him was one of the ton, staggering under an immense load of tanglefoot, and coming in fre quent and violent collision with tree-boxes and pedestrians. The latter was not molested, and the former weift to prison. This unjust discrimination, by officials, in favor of " re spectable" rowdies, is all wrong. Let equal and exact justice be done to all offenders, no matter what their pecuniary circumstances or social position. The "sons of high officials" are no better than the sons of other men ; and when the former exhibit a total disregard of the proprieties of life, and violate the public peace, let them be punished accordingly. We have no doubt theiwhole class'of "respectable" rowdies would be benefitted by making public examples of a few of their number. • Pennovtuanta lOctitp zeltgrapb, friktp 'Afternoon, IDecember 21, 1860; HARPBR'S itlAoezmil for January, 1861, just out, and for sale, at only twenty cents a copy, at Bergner's Cheap Bookstore, No. 61, Market street. The WATER PLuos.—Acting upon our sug gestion, Council employed a man to examine the water plugs and secure them against frost. Three or four of them were found frozen up and not in working condition. Horns WARD Basun= is announced to, speak in Philadelphia this evening before the Sons of New England. Our "savagerebs" friend Gen. MILLER should be there. An excellent oppor tunity would be afforded him, by the presence of Mr. Beecher, to exhibit his skill in the use of the butcher knife. ORNAMENTAL—The huge piles of coal ashes and oyster shells, which loom up on various prominent thoroughfares, as so many monu ments to the inefficiency of the city scavengers. Some of the streets are ankle deep with mud, and in a filthy condition generally. The proper committee of Council should see that the scavengers do their duty. BEFORE THE MAYOR.—Three genteel looking men were before the Mayor this morning, having passed the night in the lock-up. The first was Thomas Miller of Philadelphia ; the others Lewis Smith and Fernando Gold of New York city. They reported themselves as me ehanics in search of employment, en route for the west. They were out of money and volun tarily sought shelter in the "traveler's re treat," of which Dan Callender is the very obliging superintendent. THE OLD SOLDIERS.-PETITIONS FOR PENSIONS. Petitions to Congress, asking the passage of a law granting pensions to the surviving soldiers of the war of 1812, or the widows of such as are dead, are in circulation for signatures. The form will answer for any part of the• Union, and persons interested should have the same copied, signed and forwarded to their Representatives in Congress as early as. practicable. We pre sume petitions for Dauphin county may be had on application to the secretary of the "Old Soldiers' Association" of this city. ANOTHER BEEIEDY FOR Sons THROAT.—As dis eases of the throattare unusually prevalent in this city just now, any remedy known to be effective should be made public. The follow ing, furnished by a lady to the Syracuse Journal, is pronounced to be infallible : "A small quantity of sheep's suet, say a spoonful, chopped fine, and boiled in a gill of milk, and drank on retiring to bed. Of course the throat is to be bound with flannel. A friend triend the experiment on Monday, and although she was so hoarse on retiring to bed that she could not make herself be heard, she was able to converse freely the next morning, and at noon on Tuesday had so far recovered as to be able to appear on the street. Yesterday she resumed her usuaf 'avocations. Let those who are afflicted with sore throat try the remedy, and those who do not need it should cut this paragraph out and preserve it for future re ference."

ONLY DISCOVERY TSB BALD AND GRATi MANY, since the great discovery of Prof. Wood, have attempted not only to im:tate his restorative, but profess to have discovered something that would produce results Identical ; but they have all come and gone, being carried away by the wonderful results of Pref. Wood's preparation, and have been forced to leave the field of its resistless sway. Read the follow. tug • PROF. 0. J. Woon dr Co.:—Gents :—The letter I wrote you in 1858 concerning your valuable Hair Restorative, and which you have published in this city and elsewhere, has given rise to numerous enquiries touching the facts In the case. The enquiries are, test, is it a fact of my habitation and name, as stated in the communicatio n ; second, is it true of all therein contained; third, does my hair still continue to be in good order and of natural color? To all I can and do answer invariably. Sty hair is even better than in any stage of my IEO for 40 years past, more soft, thrifty, and better colored; the same Is true of my whiskers, and the only cause why it is not I generally true, is that the:substance is washed off by frequent ablution of the face, when if care were used by wiping the face in close connection with the whiskers, the same result will follow as the hair. I have been in the receipt of a great number of letters from all parts of New England, asking me if my hair still continues to be goad ; ae there is so mach fraud in the manufacture and sale of various compounds as well as this, it has, no doubt been basely imitated and been used, not only without any good effect, but to absolute injury. I have ' not used any of your Restorative of any account for some months, and yet my hair is as good as ever, and hund reds have examined it with surprise, as I am now 61 years old and not a gray hair in my head or on my face; and to prove this feet, I send you a lock of my hair taken off the past week. I received your far or of two quart bottles last summer, for which I am very grateful. 'I gave it to my friends and thereby induced them to try it, many were skeptical until after trial, and then pur chased and used It with universal success. I will ask as a favor, that you send me a test by which I can - discover fraud in the Restorative, sold by many, I fear, without authority from you. A pure article will insure success, and I believe where good effects do not follow, the Milner is caused by the impure article, which curses the invent or of the good. I teem it my duty as heretofore, to keep you apprised of the continued effect on my hair, as I as sure all who enquire of me of my unshaken opinion of its valuable results. I remain ; dear air; yours, A. C. RAYMOND. AARONS Ruse, Ky., Nov. 50, 1858. Prof. 0. J. Wood: Dear Sir.—.l would certainly be doing you a great injustice nut to make known to the world the wonderful, as well as the unexpected result I have experienced from using one bottle of your Hair Resttora live. After using every kind of Restoratives extant, but without success, and finding my head nearly destitute of hair, I was finally induced to try a bottle of ycur Hair Restorative. Now, candor and justice compel me to an r ounce to whoever may read this, that I now possess a new and beautiful growth of hair, which I pronounce richer and handsomer than the original was. I will therefore take occasion to recommend this indhluable remedy to all who may feel the necessity of it. Respectfully yours, REV. S. ALLEN BROCK. P.

Quite wild with surprise For in instant I closed both my mouth and my oast The former, lest speaking the spell I might break, The latter to prove I was really awake. Above me, beside me, before me, around, Was scattered the semblance of all that's been found Remarkable, beautiful, laughable, gay, Since the world was created. e'en down to to day. Each object was fraught with most wonderful grace, And look where I would, naught but beauty I'd face. The mist of bewilderment passing away, I noticed a camel hitched fast to a dray, Who qu'etly pulling his burden along, Preceded a queer but magnificent throng Of poets, and princes, musicians and nuns, Corsleted knights, and soldiers with guns, Shepherds and students, peasants and kings, Women in wooden shoes, ladies with wings, All on a pilgrimage, bound for a shrine Called—Please guess its name, for their secret's not mine. In a grove in their rearan elephant grazed, While hone and tigers lookeden quite amazed At an ox, who declared—the benevolent beast— He was fattening himself for a Christmas feast. Some reindeers from Lapland, some birds from Brazil, Each bolding a diamond, or pearlin its biil ; Arabian horses, and stately giraffes, A grum looking bear, which actually laughs, Alligators from Egypt, and hogs from Japan, A monkey which danced quite as well as a man, American sheep whose musical bass Were accompanied by donkey's more musical brays, All peacefully shared the delights of that grove, And seemed ruled by no power stronger than love. A few steps beyond was assembled a group Of Chinamen dining on rich kitteffsoup. While Japanese Tommy, the witty young noodle, Regaled them with snatches from old Yankee Doodle. A venerable-schoolmaster sat in a corner, His name I believe was Mynheer Dinglesformer, Teaching twenty-four urchins, asnear him they stood, Their ah, bay, tray lesson. The sight did me good. Behind him an arsenal cooly revealed Its treasures of cannon, swords, lances and shield, But each from its duty bad found a release, For the motto that ruled, was "In Union there's peace Garibaldi played checkers with kings in disguise, John Brown promenaded with Henry A. Wise, And Blue Beard who killed his inquisitive wives Was giving Paul Pry an account of their lives. Uncle Tom and hie Cabin was there in great state Surrounded by friends, both the small and the great. John Gilpin was taking his unlucky ride, While honest Ben Franklin Jogged on by his side. S .me horrid old ogres I saw with surprise, Rocked dear little babies ; while fairies with eyes Bright as candles, and dresses of snowiest White Looked on with expression of purest delight.

UDOLPHO WOLFE'S SCHIEDAM SCHNAPPS INVIGORATING CORDIAL To the Citizens of New Jersey and Pennsylvania; Apothecaries, Druggists, Grocers , and Private Families. Wo'feta Pure Cognac Brandy. Wolfe's Pure Maderia, Sherry and Port Wine. Wolfe's Pure Jamaica and St. Croix Rum Wolfe's Pure Scotch and Irish Whisky. I beg leave to call the attention of the citizens of the United Status to the above Wawa and Lumens, imported by ljdolpho Wolfe, of New York, whose name is fami liar in every part of this country for the purity of his celebrated Seeman Scmusra. Mr. Wolfe, in his letter to me, speaking of the purity of his Wises and Izquosis, says : will stake my reputation as a man, my stand ing as a merchant of thirty years' residence in the City of New York, that all the BRANDY and Wens which I bottle are pure as Imported, and of the beat quality, and can be relied neon by every purchaser." Every bottle has the proprietor's name on the wax, and a lac simile of his signature on the certillette. The public are re spectfully invited to call and examine for themselves.— For sale at Retail by all Apothecaries and Grocers In Philadelphia. GEORGE M. ASIITON, l Market St . Philadelphia. Solo Agent for Philadelphia. en the New York Courier : DR. G. F. BIGELOW, Boston Enormous Butinass FOE ONE NEW YORK efsactuar.— We are happy to inform our feinw-citizens 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 merchant's extensive business, although it will well re pay any stranger or citizen to visit Udolpho Wolfe's ex tensive Warehouse, Nos. 18. 20 and 22 Beaver street, and Nos. 17, 19 and 21, Marketfield street. His stock of Schnapps on hand ready for shipment could not have been less than thirty thousand cases; the Brandy, some ten thousand cases—Jintages of 1836 to 1856 ; and ten thousand cases of Madeira, Sherry and Pirt 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, Riled with Brands, Wine, &c., in casks, under Custom-House key, ready for bottling. Mr. Wolfe's sales of !Schnapps last year amounted to one hundrid and eighty thousand dozen, and we hope In lvs than two years ho may be 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 I.lquors for medical use should send their orders direct to Sir. 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 Winss and LIQUORS. WO understand Mr. Wolfe, for tile 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 Lis tens of thousands of op ponents in the United States, who sell nothing but imita• tions, ruinous alike to health and human happiness. sepB-daw6mi C.
