PRESIDENT LINCOLN intends leaving Spring
aliJut the tehldle of next month, and will
through Harrisburg on his way to the
i,Jal Capitol, in a splendid extra car fitted
ip expressly for the occasion. As he comes by
nvitation of the Legislature, of course that
,0,1) , will make arrangements for his proper
ption and entertainment while in our city.
I NION LADIES. —At the Union Printers' Ball
in Buffalo, many of the ladies wore the Union
coAade. Now that's sensible—we like it—and
notwithstanding Leap year has passed and
gone, a practice among the marriageable ladles
of hanging out some such union sign as this
would greatly facilitate the bashful pOrtion of
young men, who, like Barkus, are "willing."
FOR LADY SKATERS. —Some young ladies
Jolted a pond in the vicinity of this city, a few
ys ago, to indulge in the exhilarating exer
'se of skating. One of them, before she was
ware of it, found her feet partially frozen.
. er skates were removed and the only remedy
t hand admiuistered—a hole cut in the Ice
nd her bare feet immersed in the cold water
•ntil the frost was thawed out. The moral of
he story is that skates should not be strapped
o the foot so tightly as to impede the free cir
ulation of blood.
LOCAL LEOISLATION.—Tbe "supplement to
he Act authorizing the Commissioners of
aupbin county to borrow money," recently
publishes] in the TtLEGIIAPE has passed both
ousel of the Legislature, and is now in the
hands of the Governor. It authorizes the
Commissioners to borrow an additional sum of
twenty thousand dollars for the purpose of
completing the now Court House, &c. The
bill extending the charter of tho Short Moon
tams Coal Company also passed the Senate fi
CONVENTION OP WORICINGILEN.-A National
Convention of Workingmen will assemble in
Philadelphia on the twenty-second of February.
As a class the workingmen ate always patriotic.
They will stand by the Union, and preserve it
too from threatened danger and dissolution at
all hazards. We would suggest to the working
men of this city the propriety of calling a
meeting for the appointment of delegates to
the National Convention, if they have not al
ready done so. The Capital City of the old Key
stone should be largely and ably represented.
CRETAIN CURS FOR A Couon.—Somebody
says : Take a champagne bottle, fill it with
pure Boston rum, put therein sixpence worth
of Balm of Gilead buds. Let it soak twelve
hours, shaking occasionally to aid soakage.
Whenever you cough take a sip—about a tea
spoonful—just enough to moisten the throat.
Carry with you a small vial of it, with A few of
the buds in, in your pocket and use it. In two
or three days ordinary coughs will be cured,
and in a week the worst of ones.
IN Dmasn.---In addition to the large extra
edition of the TELEGRAPH containing the recent
able and conciliatory speech of Mr. Anaurraoso,
We to•clay filled orders for over fifteen hundred
copies in pamphlet form. The extensive de
mand for this speech, and the anxiety to read
and circulate it, is the highest compliment that
can be paid to its talented author, and shows
that he has struck a chord in the popular heart
which beats responsive to his patriotic appeal
fur the maintenance of the Union and the
Constitution. The indications are that his
resolutions will pass the Rouse by a decisive
PLEASANT PARTY.—SOMO of the participants
in the Good Templar Anniversary Celebration
last everting, inform us that the party was one
of the gayest and most pleasant they ever at-
tended. A large number of ladies—many of
them young and pretty—were present hi full
costume, whose attractions proved irresistible;
and two or three gentlemen friends confess hav
ing been seriously wounded by the darts of
Cupid, which the little blind archer discharged
at random in quick succession during the even
ing. Appropriate odes were sung, addresses
delivered, and various social amusements in
dulged in. The festivities continued until two
o'clock this morning, our cold-water friends
enioying a good time generally. "All went
merry as a marriage bell." This institution is
characterized by a high degree of sociality, its
membership comprising young persons of both
sexes, banded together for the promotion of
the temperance canes. The Lodge is reported
to be in flourishing condition, having largely
increased in numbers during the past year.
ASWJLTED ON TIIN Hrauwal.—This morning
about one o'clock, a stranger, while peramb u
lating the classic locality east of the Capitol,
on a tour of observation, was approached by a
colored man who struck him on the face with
a fist encased in iron knuckles, inflicting a se
vere wound and knocking him down. The as
sailant was about following up the advantage
he had gained, probably with the intention of
robbing the stranger, bat was interrupted by
the approach of two other men, when he fled.
The stranger gave his name as John Meckling
er, from Petry county, stated that he had been
indulging somewhat freely in tanglefoot, and
started out in search of some of the "peculiar
institutions" of the Capital. This adventure,
however, satisfied him, and he concluded to
take the first train for home this morning.—
When unsophisticated gentlemen from the rural
districts come to this city they should be care
ful to ignore tanglefoot and net venture into
such dangerous localities as that visited by
Mr. Mecklinger, who went home a sadder and
we hope a wiser man.
A STATED MEETING Of the Board of Directors
of the Ilnpe Fire Company will be held this
(Tuesday) evening at seven and a half o'clock.
Punctual attendance Is reqnested. By order.
T11031A9 SAMPLE, S ec' 17.
ExTrroursurxa FIRM BY CONTRACT. The
Fire Association of Philadelphia, composed of
a number of the most efficient fire companies,
owning their own spparatusrs, propose to the
Common Council of that city to undertake the
work of subduing fires, under proper police
restrictions, for the sum of sixty thousand dol
larsser andum, and to give bonds in the sum
of three hundred thousand dollars. The pres
ent system costs the city upward of one hun
dred thousand dollars, besides the incalculable
loss of property by - the reckless use of water,
and the lack of subordination and discipline.
A Goon ItIOVEMENT.—We notice that the
scholars in one of the public schools of Brook
lyn are to be benefitted by a new system of
instruction. They are to be taught their lea
sons in school, Instead of at home. This is
the true plan, and should be introduced into
schools everywhere. How is the child to be
come practically versed In any topic, or master
a principle, without the aid and superior know
ledge of the teacher? Any one may bold a
book and listen to the mechanical answers of
the pupil, but they are few, very few, who have
the patience and ability to simplify abstract
things, and make them plain to the youthful
mind. Let teaching in school be tried for a
term, and the' improvement will be seen with
out comparison with those otherwise instructed.
Dicratigost COLLIGIL—An item appeared in
this paper some days ago, copied from the Bal
timore Clipper, to the effect that fears were en
tertained that Dickinson College would lose its
charter in consequence of the apprehended
withdrawal of Southern students, such loss of
charter by its provisions ensuing when the num
ber of pupils shall fall below ninety. We are
pleased to learn by a note from the esteemed
President of the institution, Dr. H. W. John
son, that there is no probability of a reduction
of students from the present sectional difficull
ties, and that there are no specified conditions
under which the charter is held. The College
has students from the extreme South, all of
whom aro devoted to their classes, and have
no idea of leaving. The institution was never
in a more sound and prosperous condition than
it is at the present time.
TEN FLAG ON TOE CAPITOL ---.111 the House of
Representatives yesterday a resolution was
adopted appointing a committee (to act in con•
junction with a similar committee of the Sen
ate) to prepare a programme of the ceremonies
to be observed on the occasion of elevating the
American Flag to the Dome of the Capitol. It
has been intimated that the military of Car
lisle, Lancaster, York and Reading will partici
pate in the parade on the occasion if invited to
do so, and we would suggest to the committee
to send invitations to that effect immediately.
With prompt and vigorous action on the part
of the committee, properly seconded by our
citizens, there will be no difficulty In getting
up a splendid military and civic display on the
the anniversary of Washington's birth-day,
the time designated for placing the glorious
"stars and stripes" over the Capitol of the
State. Let the occasion be one creditable to
our patriotism as legislators and citiiens,
and worthy of the memory of the immortal
WASMINGTON, to whom we are mainly indebted
for the rich heritage we now enjoy.
Ewaszumttarr or PENNSYLVANIA Rarmtoan
Trozzrs.—We recently published a dispatch
announcing the arrest, in Boston, of two men
for defrauding the Pennsylvania Railroad Com
pany, by selling tickets for which no account
was rendered. We find in the Boston Traveller
the following account of the affair :
The officers of the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company have recently ascertained that many
of their tickets have been sold in this city, and
not accounted for. Upon , investigating the
matter, they have obtained information that
leads to the belief that they were sold by Char
les E. Evans, freight agent for the company,
and Ephraim T. Evans, a clerk in the office of
?doses Potter, the passenger agent. They were
arrested yesterday,and about seventy-five tick
ets were found upon them, or traced to their
possession. It is said that evidence has been
I obtained that they have sold tickets in the ab
sence of Mr. Potter at less than the usual price,
which is twenty-one dollars each. They were
taken before the Police Court this morning,
charged with embezzling one hundred and fifty
tickets, worth two thousand dollars, and by re
quest of the government the case was con
tinued till Thursday next, bail in the sum of
three thousand dollars being required. The
suspected parties are both young men, and
have families residing in this city.
THE MILITARY OF PENNSYLVANIA.—The Ad
jdant General in his late report takes occasion
to offer the following excellent suggestions re
specting a more efficient organization of the
military of the Commonwealth. We trust his
suggestions will be promptly and favorably
acted upon by the Legislature. The present
dilapidated condition of our military system is
discreditable to a great State like Pennsylva
nia, and measures for its reorganization should
be adopted at once :
" Some measures should at once be taken, in
obedience to the Constitution, to 'arm and quip'
the militia of this Commonwealth. Neither
the State or Nation have any other reliance
except the citizen-soldier—the militia of the
Commonweitlth. Upon them depends the ef•
fielcnt execution of law in time of trouble, and
the defence of the nation in case of collision
with foreign powers, or of extensive insurrec
tions at home. And yet, Pennsylvania, the
Keystone, so called, of the confederacy, can
scarcely arm three regiments properly, should
her action be needed either in her own defence,
or in behalf of the Union. She is almost en
tirely without munitions of war—her arsenals
contain nothing—her citizens are unarmed—
her few volunteers often ridiculed and abused,
and begrudged the pittance of arms yearly dol
ed out by the General Government. This state
of affairs ought not to exist. The requirements
of the times, as well as the Constitution, de
mand the serious attention of the Legislature
to this subject. Pennsylvania can command
nothffig, unless in a position to enforce it, if
necessary ; and even her peaceful counsels will
command no respect, unless she exhibits the
strength and power of her people. I sincerely
hope that proper steps will speedily be taken
to remedy the neglects of the past in relation
to the militia, and that, cost what it may,
Pennsylvania will at once enter upon a system
to organize her citizens into one of the greatest
a rmies, peacefully employed, that the world

THE STEAM Flap ENGINE ORDIRFIL—The mem -
bers of the Friendship Fire Company, at their
meeting last evening, by a unanimous votikor
dared a second class Amoskeag Steam Fire En
gine, from Manchester, New Hampshire, at a
cost of three thousand one hundred dollars. It
is to be named "Maalox Vaassxx," in honor
of a lady of this city, who contributed the
largest amount towards its purchase. These
engines, some of which are now in use in vari
ous cities of this and other States, are of very
high finish, and built to throw two streams.
At fair working speed, they will discharge
three hundered and fifty gallons of water per
minute, or throw two seven-eighth inch
streams one hundred and eighty feet each, or a
one inch stream two hundred and fifty feet:
Starting with cold water in the bola, a work
ing head of steam can be generated in feu than
five minutes from the time of kindling the fire.
The engine "Amoskeag," owned by the city
of Manchester, has played two streams in three
minutes and forty seconds after touching the
match, at the same time drawing her own wa
ter. The boilers are made and proved so as to
be safely run at a steam pressure of one hun
dred and forty to one hundred and fifty pounds
to the square inch ; but the engines are con
structed so as to give the best streams at a
pressure of about one hundred pounds to the
square inch, and for service at fires, . a steam
pressure of about sixty pounds to the square
inch is all that is required. The engines are
exceedingly portable ; they can be turned
about or placed for service in as contracted a
space as any band engine, and two good horses
will draw a first class engine with the greatest
ease, carrying at the same time water for the
holler, a supply of fuel sufficient to run the
engine two hours, the driver, the engineer, and
the fireman. The manufacturer has contracted
to deliver the "Marion Verbeke" here by the
first of May next.
ILLUSTRATIONS FOR CHTLDRILS.—We Once saw
a preacher trying to teach some children that
the soul would live after they were all dead.
They listened,but evidently did not understand.
He was too abstract. Snatching his watch from
his pocket, he asked :
"James, what is this I hold in my hand?"
"A watch, sir."
"How do you know it is a watch ?"
''We see it."
"Very well, can any of you hear it tick? all
After a pause—" Yes, sir, we hear it."
He took off the case and held it in one hand
and the watch in the other.
"Now, children, which is the watch ?
see there are two which look like watches."
"The Itttle one in your right hand."
"Very well, again. Now . I will lay the case
away down in my hat. Now let us see if you
can bear the welch ticking."
"Yes, sir, we hear it l"
"Well, the watch can tick and go, and keep
time you see, when the case Is taken off and
put in my hat. Tho watch goes just as well.
So it is with you, children. Your body is no
thing but the case—the body may be taken off
and buried up in the ground, and the soul will
live and think, just as well as this watch will
go, as you see, when the case is off."
MITGRELL'S New GENERAL ATLAS FOR 1861.
This is Mitchell's latest and best attempt to
furnish the American people with a complete

preparations for the hair that have been introduced as
infallible, none has ever given the satisfaction or gained
the popularity that Prof. Wood's Hair Restoratly snow
has. His Ileatorstive has passed the ordeal of innumer
able fashionable toilets, and the ladies, wherever they
have tested it, pronounce it a peerless article. They

storative for making the hair grow, stopping Its falling
out, and restoring gray hair to its original color, is be
coming celebrated. Ail the quack nostrums are giving
way before it. Three fourths of the mixtures fur re
storing and beautifying the hair, do it more Nary than
good. They burn it up—destroy the life of its roots—
make the hair fall off', and produce premature baldness.
But Prof. Wood's Restorative may be relied upon as con
