frequent a den In Tanner's alley. They made
violent resistance, and Garman was obliged to
beat a retreat to escape personal injury. This

AT A STILTED MELTING Of the Friendship Fire
Company, No. 1, held in their ball last even•
ing, the following resolution was unanimously
Resolved, That a vote of thanks is due, and
is hereby tendered, to the people of our city,
and the railroad and insurance companies, who
have already so liberally contributed towards
the purchase of a Steam Fire Engine for our
use ; and wo now appeal to all citizens, railroad
and Insurance companies, who have not yet
contributed towards our enterprise, to do so as
soon as possible, as our engine will be ready for
delivery early in May next.
Resolved, That the foregoing bo published in
tho daily papers of this city.
ABOUT SURFING. —Those who are troubled
with palpitation of the heart, should sleep with
their heads high and never have the head
within the bed clothes. It is customary for
many people to cover their heads and slumber
in this manner. This is injurious to the lungs,
as the air that is exhaled is at the next mo•
ment inhaled. Some children get into this
habit, and parents should be careful to watch
them and break It up. To wash the face,
hands and teeth before going to bed contrib
utes much to sound and refreshing slumber,
and refreshing sleep is as necessary to the
health of body and mind as our daily food.—
Night is the best period of repose, as it is the
most natural. Those whose occupations lead
them to be much awake at night, often fall
into consumptive diseases. Eight hours is not
too long a period for sleep, although many
never sleep more than six.
&TURN THANKS. —We are requested by the
Repass Comet Band, of Williamsport, to return
their thanks to the Committee of Arrange
ments and members of the Citizen Fire Compa
ny for the very kind attention and hospitable
treatment extended to them during their re
cent visit to this city. Also to Governor Cur
tin, Major Creswell, Hon. H. C. Bressler, Gen.
D. K. Jackman, George Bergner, Esq., Gen. A.
B. Warford, C. M. Shell, Esq., Mr. George C.
Fager, J.'M. Kreiter, Esq., Col. Thomas C.
M'Dowell, and others, for courteous treatment
and generous entertainment. The members of
the Band were greatly pleased with their ex
cursion to the Capital City, and left with a
highly favorable impression of the "Citizen
boys" and our people generally. Capt. Repass
and his "boys" know how to appreciate good
treatment, and will reciprocate whenever an
MARBLES.—As the light warm days begin to
grow plentier, and the genie' indications of
the coming Spring become more numerous, so
do the knots of boys on the corners increase,
and the marbles in their pockets multiply at a
fearful rate. It is true the game of marbles
is a boyish institution, but then we have all
been boys, and all more or lees indulged in the
pleasant amusement of "bounding out" or
"knuckling" close to the ground. It is an
innocent recreation, if not carried too far, and
perhaps serves, in many instances, to keep a
boy out of much greater mischief. It is amus
ing to see a crowd of little fellows get on some
street corner in the warm sunshine of these
latter days, and play marbles until their pock
ets are stuffed with the stock in trade of some
unfortunate and luckless adversary. The reali
ties of one's own childhood come back out of
the dim past, and we seem, in part, to live
over again the first era of existence. Marbles
are almost always a sure indication of the near
ness of spring, and as the genial days advatice
and the atmosphere grows less frigid, other
games will be ushered in, and more kn for
the boys be Introduced.

THE CITY HOSPITAL contained ten lodgers
last night, all strangers and perambulating
vagrants. This morning they'were discharged
by the Mayor and ordered to leave the city.
AN EDITOR AMONG THE VICTIMS.- W. B.
Lemon, Esq., editor of a paper at New Brigh
ton, had his pocket picked of sixty dollars, in
this city on Friday last. How a country edit
or managed to have such a "pile" of money
at one time, is a mystery to us.
Vurruio FIREMEN. —We learn that the mem
bers of one of the Williamsport Fire Companies
contemplate making an excursion to Harrisburg
sometime during the coming summer. We
think we can safely promise the "Rescue
boys" a cordial reception and hospitable treat
ment by the fire department of this dty.
How To OMB Baru.—A medical journal
states that, by an accident, charcoal has been
discovered to be a cure for burns. By laying a
piece of cold charcoal upon a burn, the pain
subsides immediately. By leading the char
coal on an hour, the wound is healed, as has
been demonstrated on several occasions. The
remedy is cheap and simple, and certainly de
serves a trial.
A Proassa (loss.--Toseph Trezler, of Cam
bria, died at his residence In Clearfield town
ship, on the 9th instant, at the patriarchal
age of ninety-four years. He settled in Cam
bria county, in the year 1802, when it was
little else then a dreary wilderness, and was
among the foremost of those hardy pioneers
who planted civilization amidst the rugged
peaks of the Alleghenies.
Froirrnia Tux Troxa.—The other night a
young man from up the Susquehanna was in
duced to visit a gambling den, and try his
skill in "fighting the tiger." He came away
with a collapsed pocket book, the sharper who
"run the machine" swindling him out of fifty
dollars, all the funds in his possession. An
other illustration of the truth of the old adage
that "a fool and his money is soon parted."
The unsophisticated young man alluded to
was obliged to borrow a supply of the needful
to foot his hotel bill and pay his passage home.
May he be benefitted by the lesson learned dur
ing his brief sojourn in our city.
OLD Ass's PESKIN/a APPBARANOE. —The Pre
sident elect has been as much belied in respect
to his personal appearance as his politics. We
had a fair view of him,iwhile speaking on the
balcony of the Jones House, and declare that
there is nothing outre about him. His looks
and manner show that he is as good, as his in
tellectual conflicts and speeches have proved
that he is a peat man ; and we prophecy
that the day on which he shall be inaugurated
—the °makings of mean and stupid partizans to
the contrary notwithstanding—will prove the
happiest since the Declaration. Mark the
HARRISBURG BOLL SOOISTY.—The forty-sev

Presbyterian Church on Market Square. The
annual discourse was delivered by Rev. Mr.

OMISSION AND MISTAKE.—In the list of the
Old Soldiers who participated is the flag
raising demonstration on Friday, published by
the Patriot and Union this morning, the name
of our venerable and gallant fellow-citizen,
David J. Krause, was omitted. The flag wa s
not run up on the staff by Capt. Brady, as
stated by the Patriot and Union. This part of
the ceremony was participated by most of the
Old Defenders present. "Uncle Davy's" name
was in the list furnished our cotemporary,
and we presume its omission was the result
of accident rather than of design.
A GRSAT WKICIeB WORK.—At the extensive
works of the Lehigh Crane Iron Company, lo
cated in Catasaqua, Lehigh county, where
there are five hundred stacks in full opera
tion, giving employment to about six hundred
workmen, there was manufactured, in .one
week, the extraordinary number of one thou
sand one hundred and four tons of pig iron.
These celebrated works have been, and still
are, doing a heavy and flourishing business,
notwithatading the general universal depres
sion throughout the country. We may truly
say, en passant, that not only has the above
named enterprising company, but every other
in the Commonwealth, a watchful and faithful
guardian of their interests in the person of the
amiable and eloquent Senator from Lehigh—
Avow PEDLIRB.-A few weeks ago a farmer
in a neighboring county, bought of a pedler
some salve for corns. He applied It, and it
caused a sore which continued to spread and
cause most intense pain. After suffering
two weeks and paying a heavy doctor's bill, he
obtained relief. This is but one of a thousand
warnings against dealing with any of the
numerous vagabond swindlers who are allowed
to harangue crowds in our towns, and prowl
among farmers, cheating the simple, and
sometimes imposing upon the very shrewdest.
The right way is for people to buy all they
have to buy of settled merchants, who pay
rent, license and clerks, and who can be held
responsible if they defraud, and be avoided if
they cannot be punished. More than two.
thirds of the pedlers who perambulate the
country are swindlers, and the doors of all
good citizens should be closed against them.

REASONS FOR GRAFIING STATE AID TO
Elerron TILLLGRAPIE :—Last year not one
tenth the usual amount of rain fell in Kansas,
and through a great portion of theaerritory
the ground was not wet to the depth of three
inches during the entire summer. The result
was an almost entire failure of crops. Care
fully gathered statistics from more than sixty
townships, show that while the average crop
01 corn in 1869 was thirty-eight bushels per
acre, in 1860 it was but one and a half bushels
per acre. Thousands of acres yielded nothing,
and in whole counties not as much was raised
as was planted and sown. So wide spread is
this destitution that thousands are eating the
bread of benevolence, and those who can sup
port themselves are in a condition to do little
for their neighbors.
Some contradictory reports have recently
come from Leavenworth, Kansas, signed by
citizens of that place. That document was
drawn up partly from personal animosity to
Thaddeus Hyatt, (who is not now a member of
any committeee, but has spent several months
and more than two thousand dollars from his
own pocket to feed the hungry inKansas,) part
ly from local prejudice, and partly from opposi
tion to the relief movement.
Local prejudice exists, because Atchison is ne
cessarily the distributing point, as the railroad
from the East is not completed to Leaven
worth. These towns, twenty-five miles apart,
are rivals, and little souls are affected by it in
Some of the signers to the dispatch from
Leavenworth, strange as it may seem, have al
ways opposed asking aid on the ground that a
disclosure of the true condition of Kansas would
injure our future prosperity, by preventing the
desired influx of emigration and capital.
There are persons in every State who would,
under cover of law, rob a widow of her last
dollar, and leave her helpless children to beg
gary, and if these persons were in Kansas they
would prefer that great suffering should ensue
rather than have the facts before the country,
and they suffer loss in the price of corner lots
and quarter sections.
The Mayor of Leavenworth, Hon. J. L. Mc-
Dowell, informed me in January that his
county bad raised less than a quarter crop this
year, and that many persons there were de
pendent upon help from abroad. Others, who
signed the dispatch, issued a call for aid two
months ago, under their own signatures, stat
ing that more than thirty thousand needed as
Finally, in this dispatch they_ say that twenty-thou
sand need aid, certainly this Is enough to call for
The truth is, however, that Kansas has al
ways hitherto raised good crops, and will in a
few years recover, from this terrible Providen
A memorial which I recently presented to
the New York State Legislature, gave in dehdl
figures showing the necessities of Kansas, for
seed and food, with the following result. The
value of seed required is about as follows : al
lowing that there are in Kansas 460,000 culti
vated acres or an average of one farm of 80
acres to every seven persons. Wheat, 75,000
acres, Sorghum 46,000, Potatoes 75,000, Corn
235,000, Oats, &c., 80,000, Garden vegetables
7600 acres, at a first cost for seed of 8162,749,
coat of bags and frieght to Atchison, $65,911,
allowing that, one-quarter of this can be fur
nished by the people themselves, it will require
$152, 440f0r seed alone.
The 'United States Army rationtfor each man
daily are 18 ounces' bread and-Wounces beef,
or 161 pont& solid food per week, or 89,000
people-ISi lomat estimate deducablefrim re
liable returna-498,760 pounds per week, or
14,962,500 pounds for thirty weeks, or 247,041
bushels at 60 pounds per bushel. This being
calculated for flour at $1 25 per bushel, gives
$308,801; freight; on same at 20 cents per
bushel to Atchison, $49,408. One-third of this
seed and food must be transported to the inte
rior, to those whose teams have died or been
disposed of to procure bread, which will cost
about $25,000, making a total of $535,649.
Towards this sum, Wisconsin, besides large
private contributions, has appropriated $5,000
and New York $50,000.
Will not the Legislature of Pennsylvania,
with her vast wealth contribute at least $30,-
The sum is too vast to be attained by private
contributions, liberal as they have been, and
the relief is needed immediately. The territori
al Legislature has memorialized Legislatures in
session, asking for aid. Nothing can be done
towards relief by issuing State bonds until too
late, because the State Legislature was elected
several months since, and there are several va
cancies to be filled, while our State represents
fives are many of them at a great distance from
the capital, with no telegraphs or railroads to
facilitate communication and travel.
In the name of thousands who are suffering
for the commonest necessities of life, and many
of whom went from this State, I beg the Legis
lature to make a speedy appropriation for relief,
It cannot be that Pennsylvania will refuse
bread to her own children.
