CURTIN G UARDS.—We do not desire to draw
invidious comparisons of the many brave and
gallant men who have so promptly responded
to their country's call, yet we feel that the
Curtin Guards, Captain John 11. Stover, de
serve, at least, a passing notice at our handl.
The formation of this comploy was effected
under peculiar circumstances. Captain Stover,
who is editor of the Bellefonte Press, and the
present District Attorney for Centre county,
arose from a severe illness, and marched to
Harrisburg, as a private in the Bellefonte Fen-
Cdbles, but was subsequently rejected on ac
count of Insufficient health, and declared total
lyincapacitated for duty. Notwithstanding, be
announced his determination to fellow close in
their wake; and although they now marched
without him, be would meat them where the
battle raged the fiercest and the foes fell the
fastest. Fie has endeavored to keep his word,
and, we doubt not, will soon realize his san
guine expectations. Going Immediately to his
home for a number of picked men, he soon
returned with them to the camp, and, join
ing them with the excess of the Bellefonte
Fencibles, formed, under the name and title
of the Curtin Guards, one of the best and finest
looking body of men in the service.
John A. Rodgers, Second Lieutenant of the
Ancibles, learning Air. Stover's determination
to form another company, immediately resign
ed his office and joined the Guards as a private
older. He has since been elected First Lieu
tenant, and has already proven a valuable ac
quisition. When this company came to be
sworn in, there were found to be ninety-three
men, seventeen more than the requisite num
ber. It was with a heavy heart the unfortunate i
seventeen listened to the announceme n t o f
their rejection. A number of them, however,
joined other companies, while a few returned
reluctantly to their hoar. The Curtin Guards
have with them—prominent among whom are
the Captain and Orderly Sergeant—fifty expe
rienced rifiemen, who can hit the "bull's eye"
- at sixty paces nine times out of ten: Such are
a few of the many noble men with whom the
miscalled Southern chivalry will have to deal,
and we feel assured that the Curtin Guards will

EXPULSION or Vows , ress.—ln Thursday's
TELEGRAPH we noticed the arrival in this city
of several Virginia families, who were com
pelled to flee from that State, in consequence
of their political opinions. Almost every day
we hear of new arrivals from that quarter, and
many in a destitute condition.
The following is a true an&faithful state
ment of facts connected with the expulsion of
a party who arrived here yesterday :
"We have been faithful, law abiding citizens
of the State of Virginia, and county of Fairfax
for from 4to 10 years. We have never inter
fered with their domestic institution of slavery,
either by word or act. We have endeavored
by all means to give no offence, but on the
contrary, endeavored by all peacable means to
remain in peace. On Sunday last, to our sur
prise, we were , notified to take the oath of alle
giance, and if we refused to do this we were to
leave the State within forty-eight hours, or
bear the consequence. Our crime was simply
because we dared to exercise the right of free
men, and vote to keep the State in the Union.
This was our only crime, and now after being
shamefully betrayed by oar delegates in Con
vention, (every member but seven of that num
.ber voting for State - sovereigtity, or - in other
words State rebellion,) and not knowing what
other means to use to deafest and triumph over
the Union party, they have adopted the followg
lug cruel and tyranical means. A copy of the
notice which here follows was served upon one
and each of the Northern men in the county :
" NOTIQS.—AII persons who are unwilling to
join in the Home Guard to meet at Magor Jan
ney's house, this night, at eight o'clock, for the
county of Fairfax and State of Virginia, and
feeling averse thereto, they have only forty
eight hours in which to leave the county and
State,or givelfull satisfaction that they. will have
nothing to do with any diflionities that may
arise amongst us.

ARE YOU SICK, feeble and complaining?
Are yon out of order, pith your system deranged.
and your feelings uncomfortable? Thai° symptoms are
often the prelude to serious Wiles.. Some flt of sickneae
is creeping upon you, and should be averted by a timely
use of the rieht remedy. Take Ayer's Pills and cleanse
nut the disordered humors—runty the blood and let the
fluids move on unobstructed in health again. They stimu•
late the functions or the body into v igorous activity, pu
rify the system from disease. A cold settles somewhe ra
in the holy, and obstructs its natural functions. Three,
if not relieved, react upon themselves and tte surround
leg organs, producing general aggravation, suffering and
disease. While in this condition, oppressed by the de
rangements, take Ayer s Pills, and see how directly they
restore the natural action of the system, and with it the
buoyant feeling of health again. What is tine sad so
apparent in this trivial and common complaint, is al,o
true in muny or the deepisaated and dangerous distem
pers. The same purgative effect expels them. Caused
by alMlar obstractidos and derangements of the natural
functions of the body, they are rapidly, and many of
them surely, cared by the same means. None who
know the virtues of these Pills, will neglect to employ
them when suffering from the di orders they OM.

ever tonna. Their alterative effect upon the Dyer makes
them an excellent remedy, when given in smah doses for

makes them very acceptable and convenient for the use
of women and children.
