DEATH or A SOWER.—Yesterday morning a
soldier named John Marlin, a member of Capt:
Abdrews' company, of West Chester, died at
the North ward female school house, in Wal
nut street, of inflamation of the lungs, leaving
a wife and two children to mourn his loss.
Hie wife attended him during the latter portion
of his life, as did the ladles in the neighbor
hood, who were incessant in their endeavors
to mak. him comfortable. His remains were
st.nt home to West Chester this morning.
HAND BOOK YOU TES U. S. SOLDISB.—J. B.
Lippincott At, Co. have favored us with a copy
of au illustrated manual of the common drill
of the soldier, with explanations of the forma
tion oi b3ttalion, the position of the officers,
se., hon. intended as an introduction to the
authorized U. S. Infantry Tactics. The work
compares favorably with others on the same
uhject, previously published, and as its price
is low, it will no doubt have a rapid sale. The
wi , rk can be procured wholesale or retail at
B roer's book store.
FUNEHAI. OF A SOLDIBIL—Mr. Peter Roberts,
c , no of the volunteers of the Verbeke Rifles,
died on Saturday at Lancaster of ingestion of
the lunge contracted by a bad cold which he
t while on guard during the rain. His re
tuAlue were brought home on Saturday night
t his family which resides here, and interred
dterday afternoon with the honors of war In
the cemetery. He leaves a wife and seven chil
dr,:u to mourn his death, and we sincerely hope
that they will not be forgotten by our (Athens.
Let us always provide for the families of them,
who risk their lives in defends of their coun
try, nor forget the widows and fatherless who
fell for the Union. :
A Rua-on.—On Saturday afternoon a horse
attached to a coal cart belonging to the Car
Company was left standing near Ohesnut in
Second street, when frightening he took the
pavement at Ensminger'e corner at full speed,
ran against a tree at Dr. Roberts', injuring it
very much; ran °per the plug at the corner of
the alley, moving it, and then turned into the
street, where the harness became loosened from
the eart . ,*aud he escaped. From the number
of women and children on the pavement at the
time, it Is surprising that some fatal accident
did not transpire; as it wu there was a genteel
stampede, and terriffic screaming byall parties.
The drivers of carte, etc., cannotbe too care
ful of their hopes.
MARICILT Hovas.—Tbis new ordinance of our
City Council does not meet with much appro
bation by the farmers, and the consequent ef
fect it will have in the busy seasons will be to
keep many at home. Our, country folks, u a
general rule, are early risers. They like to
came to market and return home in time to
commence their day's labor—but the new re
gulation prevents this. They think it an im
position, and very justly, too. Not only they
but our own citizens are heartily tired of this
thing. We know not why the ordinance was
enacted. Surely it was uncalled for. Why
should the many be annoyed by the the action
and desires of a few? The fact is that it was
gotten up for lazy people to the detriment of
mechanics and others who rise at an early
hour. The only argument we ever heard in its
behalf was that it would prevent forestalling.
But it does no such thing. It was only on Sat
urday that we saw men going through the
market house before the Court House bell
announced the lionr of five and where
ever they saw some young poiltry, or what
else suited them, they requested the dealers to
keep them until they called. Now we call on
our City Council to repeal this odious law, and
enact in its stead a more stringent ordinance
relative to forestalling.
THE WILD OLT Digratcr.—Much has been said
and written of this district. Eleven companies
have bean accepted from this district, and are
now in service, whilst sixteen more companies
have been offered and are anxiously awaiting
an acceptance. Some of these sturdy eons had
to walk from thirty to eighty miles through
the woods to the Susquehanna, and then came
down on a raft to "Rattlesnake Station," on
the Sunbury and Erie railroad, and from thence
here. Thie le doing extremely well, when we
consider that the district 'abut sparsely eettled.
The men are hardy, generally intelligent, and
above all, good marksmen. The sign on their
hats, a " bucktall," denotes that they know
how to traverse the wood after game. They
are all strongly attached to Col. Kane, brother
of Dr. E. K. Kane, who took a great interest in
their welfare, and spent much time and labor
in getting them here. We understand that the
Lane family has provided for them liberally
with clothing whilst they have been encamped
at Camp Curtin.
General John Patton, the member of Con
gress, has also taken an especial interest in
them. He has done his utmost to keep the
companies from that dietriot all together and
formed into one reginiebt, and we can assure
the "Bucktalls" that they outflnd no warmer
friend than Mr. Patton, who will keep an eye
on those Who might otherwise feel disposed to
treat them shabbily.
We hope that those who ate no* quartered
hem will cot be kept idle much lorklier. They
desire to see active servioe. Tot them be gret"
tiled, and we feel assured that they Will i "
their mark with the enemy. - •
