Thursday Afternoon, February 14, 1861.
SUDDEN MATH —William lonia died on Sun
day morning, at his residence in Greensburg,
after a short illness. He was in the employ of
the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, and held
the position of master mason on the road.. He
was interred with Masonic honors.

THE CAVALRY SQUADRON will meet for drill on
the Park grounds next. Saturday afternoon at
two o'clock. As it is the design of the "Squad
ron" to participate in the parade on the twen
ty-second, we presume temporary officers will
be elected to take command on that occasion.
A large number of persons—mostly young men
of the adjoining rural districts—have signed
the roll of the company ; and from the energy
and zeal manifested by them in behalf of this
new military organization, we, are encouraged
to hope that there will soon be a Srst-class
Cavalry Squadron added to the military force
of our county. Forward ! gentlemen !
THE Larast—The spring fashions for panta
loons are already out in Philadelphia, .and rf
course will soon he introduced here by the
"ton." The favorite style is a narrow plaid, in
enormous squares. Our repOrtorial cotemporary
of the North American saw a sample yesterday,
which he thus describes : "One bar rests upon
the boot, the next at the knee, and the thi at
the hip, the fourth - forming the waistband.—
The legs of the gentleman sporting these trow
seriireminded us of the long loop-bole windows
in the front of the Eastern Penitentiary. The
color is alively brickiinscbarred with orange."
There's a fashion that is a fashion !
Tus OLD SOLDIERS of this city request us to
extend an invitation to all their formeAcom
panions•ic-arms reilding in the neighbOring
towns and villages, to visit Harrisburg on the
22d lust , and unite with them in the parade
on the occasion of raising the "stars and
stripes" to the dome of the CapitoL The vete
rens who rallied under the American Flag in
the second war of independence and marched
to the defence of their country, are the very
men who ought to participate in the contem
plated demonstration, and we .hope to see a
large body of them here. They will be heart . -
ily welcomed and hospitably entertained.
hanna river is unusually high at this time, and
still rising. Large quantities of icennd drift
wood passed down yesterday and this morning.
Last evening one of the spans of the Northern
Central Relirold Bridge lodged at the head of
Bridge Island, where it remained for some
time, but was finally swept away by the In
creasing' current. From the swollen and tur
bulent condition of the river, and the break
ing up of the ice in the branches and creeks
tributary thereto., fears are entertained that
considerable damage bas been done to the
canals and private property in the Juniata and
upper Susquehanna regions. We have no re
ports from the "booms," and presume they
are all safe.
WSDNESDAY, the commencement of the
religious fast commonly called "Lent," was.
observed .yesterday by some of our Christian
denominations, appropriate Forcipes being held
in the Catholic and Episcopal churches. Lent
itself is so called from the time of the year
wherein it is observed. The word is derived
from the Saxoe, and signifies Spring ; during
the last century it also had the meaning of the
Spring Fast. Ash Wednesday takes its name
from the custom, long ago established in the
Catholic church, of marking the foreheads of
the people ;l •in the form of a cross, with- ashes
made from the palms blessed the year previOuth
in commemoration of our
_Saviour's triumphal
entrance - into Jerusalem. The ceremony is
performed by the priests, after the regular mass
for the day has been offered. These words ac
company the act, expressive of its significance ;
"Me mento, homo, quod pulvis ea, et in pul
verem reverteris—Remember, man, thou art
dust, and shalt return;to dust." The gay sea
son, now-a-days, generally terminates at thin
period—it being deemed not only a moral of
fence, but also one againit etiquette, to indulge
in worldly amusements during the solemn fast.
The Catholic and Epiacopalian churches are
opened on Ash Wednesday, and in the latter
sermons suited to the . occasion are usual!,
preached. Fasting is observed for forty days ;
that is to say, until Easter Sunday. • The regn‘
lations imposed upon those who acknowledge
the supremacy of the4loman:See„ vary hr dif
ferent quarters of the globe, in plaint of sever
ity, and are, in all cases, adjudged by the au
thorities of St Peter's. The bishops and arch
bishops cause these instructions to be published
in every parish, for , the information of all who
are bound, by their allegiance to the Cabello,
faith, to comply with the precepts of the fast.
The season of forty days will, no doubt, be
observed with more than ordinary solemnity;
humility and prayer, because of the peduliar
circumstances of the times. "The prayers •of
the righteous availeth much;" kid weirust the
preservation Of our glorious Union may not be'
forgotten in the private devotions and public
prayers of thew who delight in serving the .
]duster in all the means ot grace.

Hynieka for several bunches of horse radish

We thank the gentleman for his kind attention.
Snaove TUESDAY, which occurred .this week,
was duly observed by many families, who in
dulged in the ancient custom of eating "pan
cakes." There are many other customs which
were formerly observed with regularity, such
as playing games, etc., but in this latitude no
Arttee of them remain.
Tae SCARLET FEVER is not confined to Dau
phin, where it has desolated numerous homes
within a brief period. The disease prevails to
a considerable extent in New Cumberl and and
vicinity, where many families have been robbed
of their "household jewels." We have not
heard of any fatal cases in our city, up to this
time; but it is to be feared that the "red demon
of the nursery" will-not pass us by. The vari
able weather we are now experiencing is decid
edly unhealthy, and parents cannot- be too
careful of their little ones. Colds are readily
contracted by insufficient clothing and undue
exposure, and often result fatally, superiudu
dug scarlet fever, croup and diptheria, and
other diseases whiCh baffle the skill of our best
physicians: All.ahonld act upon the old maxim
that "an ounce of prevention is better than a
pound of cure." *
FANNY FERN on Snorprao.--Fanny Fern has
been discoursing upon the afflictione of shop
ping. She bate s being compelled to buy any
thing against her will, but sometimes has to
submit. She says :
Enter the door, and three clerks immediate
ly opting from' the scabbard and ask--" what is
IL?" Ot course, you immediately, forget any
intentions you might have had of buying any
thing, and before you have time to recall your
senses, you find yourselves listening to a run
ning inventory of everything in that shop,
with the prices, from a cotton handkerchief to
a silken velvet cloak or dress. If you are not
a lunatic by that time, you make a feeble at
tempt to get out into the open air ; which
praiseworthy effort is frustrated by a procession
of clerks who accompany you down the store,
each with a pieee of gdods over one arm, which
they pat and stroke with caressing fingers, and
would be happy to know "if it is eleven or
twelve yards you will need for your dress."
LieION.•—A few mornings since an accident of
an unusual character happened to a freight
train on the Pennsylvania Railroad, while as
cending the western slope of the Allegheny
Mountain. At Lilly's station the coupling of
the rear car in the train gave way,- and beir4
heavily laden with coal, it began to descend
the slope, the speed gradually increasing With
the distance. The car continued its flight
without interruption to Wilmore Station, a dis
tance of seven miles. At this point an 'engine
was standing on the track, heading eastWard
ly., Two railroad men were quietly seated
upon the cow-caicqr discussing the news of
the day, when their atteaticui,was,
the rapid approach of the car. They hardly
knew what to make .of this singular visitor,
but it did not take them long to make up their
minds about leaving their comfortable seats.
When they got out of harm's way, they quiet
ly watched the collision, which was described
es one of the hardest bumps they ever heard.
The car was making at least forty miles an
hour, and both the car and the front of the
engine were badly damaged.
Us DYSPEPTIC. —Of the numerous diseases
which afflict suffering humanity, the most pre
valent in this country is that commonly known
as "dyspepsia; and of all miserable sinners
who grumble their way through the world, its
victims are the most miserable. They are to be
met with everywhere, id all conditions of life,
and among all classes of society. ffarrisburg
has its full share of confirmed dyspeptics, and
having been similarly afflicted; a "long time
ago," we know bow to sympathize with them
in their sufferings. A writer on the subject,
who evidently speaks from experience, says
truly that digestion is the very origin of life and
growth. Eating does a man no good unless the I
nutriment of the food is seized hold of by
the ingenious organs of digestion and transfer
red, particle by particle, to the blood, and
then& into every pertion of the kali t 4) supply
the perpetual, wear and tear , of the physical
system. There is virtue in eating per se.--
eefsteak undigestedidoes a man no more good
than it dklihe gridiron onwhich it was broiled.
On the contrary it does him positive harm. If
then the, digestive organs fail to perform their
appropriate functions, every part of the body
by degrees becomes feeble`and nerveless. The
repairs and supplies being cut of. every muscle,
nerve, bone and sinew, grows 'dank weaker.
Nor does the mind escape 'the general decay.
The reasoning powers gradually.loie their vig
or. and the memory becomes dull imkunrelia
ble. A man who was once a man is reduced to
half a man, and that half can only work with
half He native energy. 'This tendency to stu
pidity and inaction, in its turn still further im
pairs the digestive organs, causing "them to
grow more dead and useless, and the sad result
is a confirmed spiritless an4 , f4+llle dyspeptic.
But the story is tot all told Yet: Indigestion
not only allows the physical system: ;to 'go to
decay, and the mental powers to weir out, but
it demoralizes the whole disposition and tem
per. }Ake a sick ass overloaded with grain, its
victim is not only unable to proceed but grows
cross, surly, snarling and obstinate under his
misfortune.' A man may have the measles, the
typhoid fever, or even pulmonary consumption,
and still retain his amiability of temper. 'But
no man ever yet was troubled with bad diges
tion and kept good natured. The milk of hu
man kindness loses all the cream of its native
excellence, and actually becomes sow as a direct
result of indigestion. In fact, if it were not
grace instead of good works by Which we are'
saved, no dyspeptic would ever enter the Sing
dour of Heaven. In the soil of his heart not one
of the,cliristiari'virtues but thatgrnws,sciagged
and thorny. Bad, melancholy and misanthropic,,
wealth 'becomes useless, friends unappreciated,
and life itself a burden. To sum up all, It has
been said that dyspepsia is a physical purgatory.
Happy is that man who cap ; come out of: its,
Ares chastened and purified.

lehrn that several companies in Huntingdon

and others in various towns along the line of
the road, are making preparations to come, so
that we may confidently anticipate the largest
and finest military display ever witnessed here.
The probability is that , a similar , arrangement
will be made with the other railroad companies.
A Goon Suctaitsuoiv.—Wi recently published,
"with an atfirrria tive recommendation," a bill
introdM;eil by eome - meinber of the House who
,the services` of the "boys who run
with the-thisheene," to exempt the officers`and
members of all regularly organized fire cord
parties froorthe performance of military duty,
unless in time of Retrial war. A cotemporary,
endoraing the measure, says that the "boys"
I devote !more time and• money to the pcotection
of the rights and property of olhbrs than all
the military companies put together, but mg
psis that the bill 'rbe so amended as to ern
brace only the active members and exclude from
its benefits the mere drones in the fire •compa
nies." We heartily second the amendment,
and. submit itto , the Consideration of our legis
lative .
PESSRTID VILLAGE.—One of the most in
teresting incidents in the history of Cambria
county is the settlement of the, village of Bue
lah, scarcely a trace of which now remains. It
was founded by a body of Welshmen, and lays
in a small valley on the. Blacklick creek, in
the township of Cambria, then in Somerset
county, but afterwards inoluded in the new
county of Cambria. They laid out streets, pub
lished a newspaper , called The Western Sky,
built a library and seminary, and seemed on
-She road - to prosperity,When the establishment,
of the town of Ebensburg took away every in
habitant, and the streets are obliterated,
and every house except a shaky wooden dwell
ing_ has disappeared. The county of Cambria
was wild and solitary enough, with its Moun
tain peaks and lonely water courses, but the
story of this deserted village adds a still more
picturesque interest to its scenery.
.Tus BLoomilerm MYSTERY.—The Perry county
Freeman, gives ' some further particulars of
Wm. Weaver, whose recent arrest on a charge
fo poisoning his wife, was noticed in'the TELE
GRAPH. The Freeman says:
'Wm. Weaver, the huriband of the deceased
woman, was living near Parkesburg, Chester
county in this State, and we understand came
to -Perry county about April, 1859.. Ho re
moved his family from Centre township to
Bloomfield in the'beginning of last November,
but he had been acting as hostler at Mr.Speak
man's hotel since August last. The sudden
death of his wife took our citizens by surprise.
His actions after her death—having married
another wife about lour weeks after' the death
of his first one, and gone off—the discovery
that he had purchased strichnine at Newport
and gave his receipt therefor—the return of a
couple of his daughters from Chester county,
whither he lead sent them, and their declare
Monk and various other suspicions circumatan
stantes--all seemed to fasten suspicion upon him,
him, and caused a, legal investigation to be
made.. -At the time of his wife's death, be had
the sympathy of our people, and one of the be
nevolent associations of our borough.paid the
funeral expenses, though it was subsequently
discovored that he had money enough to have
done =so himself. Dr. Lefever has gone with

analyzed by a professional chemist ; and the

0. 3. WOOD, Esq.:.- Dear Sir ilea me the pleasure
and Bat Isla ction to transmit to you the beneficial. effects
of your Hair Reateraeve, after a trial of live sears I
commenced tieing your Restorative in January, 18 5,
since which Ulna I. have not been without a bottle on
band. When I commenced the use, my hair
. was quite
thin, and at least oneethird gray. A few applications
stopped its turning, and in three weeks time there was
not a gray hair to be noticed, neither has there been up
to this time. •
After my hair was completely restored, 'continued its
use by applying two or three times per month. My Lair
has ever c ntlnned healthy, soft and glossy, and my
scalp perfectly free from dandruff. I do not imagine the
fa 3121 above mentioned will be of any particular. advan
tage to you, pr oven flatter your vanity at this late day,
as I am well aware they are all known already and even
more wonderful ones throughout the Union. I have oc
copied my time in traveling the greater part of the time
the pastthree years, and have taken pride and pleasure
in recommending your Restorative, and exhibiting its
effecbs in my own case. In several instances I have met
with people that have pronounced it a humbug; saying
they have, used It and without effect. In every instance,
however, it provel, by probing the matter, that they
had not used your article at all, but had nrg.d setae new
article said, to be as good as yours, and aeng at about
half the price. M
I have noticed two or three articles my
self advertised as above, which I have no doubt are
humbugs. It is astonishing, that people will patronize
an article of no reputation, when there is one at hand
that has been proved beyond a doubt.
Apparently some of those charitans have not brains
enough to write an advertisement, as I notice they have
copied yours word for word in several instances, merely
Inserting some other name in place of yours,
I have, within the past Ova years, seen and talked with
more than two thousand persons that have used your
preparation with' perfect success—some for baldness

Prof. WOOD, Dear Sir —I was induced . more than a
year ago- to try your valuable Bair Restorative for the
purpose of cleanaingmy head of dandruff. *I bad suffered
with it upon my head for years, and had never been, able
to get anything to do me any good in removing
though I had tried many preparations, until I saw your
advertisement in B,Harrisburg paper. Being there at
the time, I called at Gross -dc Kunkle's drug store, and
beught a bottle, and now am prepared to recommend it ,
to universal nee, for it has completely removedall dand
ruff from my head,. and an application once in two weeks
keeps it free from any itching or other unpleasantness.—
I must also state that my hair had, become quits units
in places, and, by the use of your preparation, has been
.restored toils original color. lam now SO years ot age,
and although I have used two bottles of the Restorative,
no one has.any knowledge of it, 84.1 allow a tew gray
lairs to remain.ln order to have my appearance com
port with my age. My head is now of less trouble to me
in keeping it clean, &c., than at any time- since I have
been a child. I consider your preparation of great, value,
and, although! do not like to expose Myself, I-consider it
my duty to do so. You can use this or any part of it is
any shape you think proper, if it is worth any thing to
you. Yours &c
