Friday Afternoon, May 10, 1861.
UNION ENVELOPES, Note Paper and Badges
can be had at Bergner's Book Store.
blocs MUNITIONS 01 WAR.—Several addition
al wagon loads of boxes containing arms and
other munitions of war arrived here yesterday
and were deposited in the State Arsenal.

was arrested this morning charged with the
larceny of two dollars. On default of bail,
Alderman Kline committed her to prison to
THE KEPNER FommEs, and all persons de
sirous of joining said company, are requested
to meet at the Hope Fire Company's house this
evening at 7.1 o'clock.
THE COLUMBIA COUNTY BAND.—Owing to some
misunderstanding in regard to the time, the
Columbia County Band were not present at the
fkg raising at Mrs. Espy's bo.irding house last
MILITARY MATTEns.—Two more volunteer
companies, one to be named the "Kepner Fen•
cibles," are now forming in this city. The
"head quarters" of the Fencibles is at the Hope
hose house, and the other company we believe
hangs out their flag at the Exchange.
ItsvoLvens.—By the army regulations U. S.
Infantry are forbidden to carry revolvers. The
reason assigned for this order is, that the fact
of carrying revolvers may lead to their use at
a time when the rifle or musket should be em
ployed. Those who give this order should
know, and perhaps do from experience, that
allowing the infantry revolvers is detrimental
to their effectiveness.
ARREST of A VIROINXAN.—A man who gave
his name as Wm. H. Collins, hailing from the
State of Virginia, was arrested this morning at
Camp Curtin, under the belief that he was a
spy. He was taken before Mayor Kepner,
where he was subjected to a strict examination,
which terminated in his discharge, there being
no evidence sufficient to detain him for the
charge upon which he was arrested.
GOOD FOR THE "UPPER END."—LykeIIStORPH
and vicinity, in the upper end of this county,
has already one volunteer company, the
"Washington Rifles," in active service, and we
see by the Journal that a second company, to
be called the "Wiconisco Rangers," has been
formed, with a view of offering their services
to the government. The fund for the relief of
the families of volunteers in that vicinity
reaches nearly thirteen hundred dollars!
DISCHARGED.-A few days ago one of the sol
diers was discharged and hooted out of Camp
Curtin, because he was afraid of being shot and
wanted to go home. He had volunteered to
fight, but on reaching the camp, he learned
that in case of battle they have a careless pros
miscious way of shooting, and are just as likely
to hit a fellow as not; so like Bob Acres, his
courage oozed out, and he made tracks for
home.. His place was immediately filed by one
of five, who offered their services.
SOUND SENTIMENT.—The following verse of a
song we clip from one of the Philadelphia pa
pers. The music reminds us of the advancing
tread of armed men :
Our starry flag, our starry flag,
Whose eagle soars enthroned in light,
Will thou not float o'er hill and crag
Triumphant in the hour of fight ?
Let him who swells Rebellion's cry
In civil strife once turn to thee,
A patriot's tear will fill his eye,
His bright sword strike for liberty !
Strike, strike the bold, fierce Treason's hand
For God, for fame, for liberty, for Union
And our native land 1
IMPORTANT TO FOOT SOLDIERS.-HOW TO
CLOTHE THE FEET AND KEEP TELEX COMFORTABLE.
—l. Blistering, buying, soreness and tender
ness of the soles of the feet may almost invaria
bly be prevented, even when marching for
days together and over a heated road, by soap
ing the sole of the stocking—that is, covering
it with a thin coating of the cheapest brown
soap. This, at the same time, keeps the skin
of the sole cool, hardens it, and prevents in
flamation. Coarse cotton souks are the best for
2. Don't wear woolen socks when march
ing, not even thin ones, no matter in what cli
3. The boot or shoe should have a thick
sole ; it is not sufficient that they should be
simply " double soles ;" the soles should be at
least half an inch thick ; if three fourths of an
inch or an inch all the better ; they are more
expensive, but if well made they will last a
long time, and even in the warmest weather
will be found easy to walk in, the feet easily
becoming accustomed to their weight.
PRAMISE ECONOMY.—There never was a time
in our history when it was more necessary to
practise economy than now. War enormously
enhances the price of provisions and other ne
cessaries, while it diminishes the means of pur
chasing them. In some kinds of business for
tunes are being realized. But such is the gen
eral prostration of business that the failures in
New York since the 22d of April number over
two hundred; and such is the quantity of pro
tested paper thrown on the banks that they
now refuse to accommodate. One of these,
the day before yesterday, had $3,000 worth of
paper protested. Real estate is unsaleable, and
rents are gone down, because they know that
the war and the de.nand in England will ena
ble them to command high prices. It is neces
sary, therefore, for all elasses of citizens to
practice economy ; even for some who used to
purchase three or four coats in twelve months
to wear one now for a whole year. Economy in
these, the hardest of hard times, is a virtue of
the first order, and no person ought to buy
anything he can dispense with till the war is
ANOTHER OUEN. —Last Sunday a large eagle

the irrepressible thirty clapped their hands,
gave the Colonel three cheers, and immediate

Tun printers of New York city are joining
in for the war quite enthusiastically. E.'ix have
gone from the Times office, six from the News,
twelve from the Tribune, twenty-three from
the World, eight from the Herald, six from
the Express, eight from Harper's, six from the
German dailies, and eight or ten from the Jour
nal of Commerce and Courier. These make a
total of eighty five. All told, about two hun
dred members of the craft have enlisted for the
TExAs.—The Southern papers say that Gen.
Houston is all right. He made a speech at
Galveston in which he denied having ever held
any communication directly or indirectly with
Mr. Lincoln or his agents, knowing them to be
such. He also denied still claiming to be Gov
ernor of Texas. He said he had retired to pri
vate life, and never to leave it, but in defence
of his country. Col. H. E. M'Culloch has been
directed by Secretary Walker to raise a regi
ment of mounted riflemen for the defence of
the Texan frontier, and has issued a general
order to that effect. His headquarters will ba
KENTUCKY AND THE UNION.— The Louisville
Journal of Monday says :
" Secession in Kentucky received a stagger
ing blow on Saturday, and Louisville covered
herself with imperishable honor. There were
8,112 votes cast for the Union delegate ticket,
when the aggregate vote of the city at the
Presidential election was only 7,453. The
largest vote ever cast before in Louisville was
in the gubernatorial race between Magoffin
and Bell, the aggregate of which was 7,645.
So that when Louisville gave 8,112 votes for
the Union ticket, she exceeded by four hun
dred and sixty votes the largest aggregate vote
ever before polled.
Of the 7,463 votes for President, Breckin
ridge received but 860, and many of the latter
doubtless voted the Crittenden-Guthrie ticket
on Saturday, so that the secessionists proper
do not constitute a corporal's guard. If their
ticket had not been so judiciously withdrawn,
we do not believe it would have averaged more
than two or three votes in any precinct of the
city. This result inspires us with additional
hope that the State generally has spoken with
a voice equally unmistakable for the Union,
the Constitution, and the restoration of peace."
THEFL—The total amount due this hour from
the seceded States to Northern merchants and
capitalists cannot be so little as Two Hundred
Millions of Dollars, whereof probably three
fourths aro owing to this city. Most of the
creditors have for years done everything pos
sible to commend themselves to the good will
of the South. Their politics, their opinions
generally, have been molded to please their
rather exacting customers; they have resolv
ed, and subscribed, and fused, and voted, just
as they supposed would be most agreeable in
Georgia and Alabama. They gave generous
credits, and they trusted almost anybody who
came from the honored Land of Cotton. Their
reward is to be most outrageously swindled and
a good part of them stripped of large fortunes
and sent adrift in the decline of life bankrupts,
with hardly a chance of recuperation. And
those who have robbed them of their all seem
to delight in adding insult to injury.
"Well," says a Chivalric swindler, "isn't
this just what they have deserved ? Didn't
tbey.know that we robbed our laborers of their
hire, paying them for each hard day's work
with a scant allowance of bread and pork and
an unlimited supply of whip lash? Didn't
they profess to approve this arrangement, and
hold it perfectly right? And why should we
not pay for our Goods as easily as we pay for
our Labor ? Isn't no pay as wholesome for
the jobber as for the digger ?" Possibly ; but
do the Secessionists propose henceforth to do
without friends altogether ?—New York Tribune.

The Ohio Regiment for the War.
RECEPTION AT THE WHITE HOUSE
Captain M'Connell, U. S. A., appointed Re
cruiting Agent at Baltimore, sent a report to
the War Department this morning, announcing
300 recruits for the regular service. The Cap
tain states he has had a great many offers, and
feels confident that Maryland will feel proud of
her representation in the Arty. He adds : "It
is but justice to the Commissioners of the Bal
timore City Police, presided over by Charles
Howard, to say that they have afforded me all
requisite facilities in the performance of my
Four companies of cavalry from Carlisle bar
racks have marched safely to this city.
It seems that the attempt to poison the
troops stationed at the Relay House was much
more wide spread and serious than was at first
suspected. Strychnine was introduced into the
camp by venders of c ikes, apples and goodies
in vast quantities. Gen. Butler alludes to the
subject in special orders, and says :
"Are our few insane enemies among the loy
al men of Maryland prepared to wage war upon
us in this manner? Do they know the terrible
lesson of warfare they are teaching ue? Can
it be that they realize the fact that we can put
an agent, with a sword, into eve,ry household,
armed with this terrible weapon ?"
The Ist Ohio Regiment, which has offered
for three years, was tendered this afternoon by
Col. Cobb of Cincinnati.
The reception last evening is honor of the
officers and men on duty here was a great suc
cess. Everybody was there. The marine band
played splendidly. The President looked well.
The Madame looked better, and a more joyous,
happy, patriotic gathering probably never con
vened before at the Presidential mansion. For
the benefit of the fair sex, I will state that
Mrs. Lincoln wore a very elegant blue silk,
richly embroidered, and with a long train; also
point lace cape, and a full set of pearl orna
ments, in which she well sustained the dignity
of her station ; while the old lady of her house
hold, Mrs. Grimsley, wore a blue watered silk,
with lace cape and appropriate trimmings. The
officers and all were delighted with their recep
