Monday Afternoon, June 3, 1801.
GsAss BUTT a.—We are blessed with most
deliciou.i grass butter just now, the yellow rolls
v o kerg like lumps of gold. It is abuudant
and sells at reasonable' rates.
commesnAnn.—A meeting of the Friendship
tire company will be held this evening, when
a movement will be inaugurated looking to
the organization of a military company. This
is right. In these times of " wars and rumors
of wars" all good citizens should familiarize
t hem-elves with military tactics and the use of
TRAVELING BEGG ARS are on the increase.
Several able-bor:ied foreigners, of recent im
portation, are now perambulating the city,
exhibiting "passes" manufacturnd and pur
chased in New York, and soliciting alms.
Money given to these lazy mercenaries is never
bestowed. They should be turned
away =timed from every door they approach.
SELLINCI BEIM ON SUNDAY.—One of our Teu
tonic citizens, Henry Snyder, was arrested this
worniog by officer Cole, charged with selling
lamer leer on Sunday. He was bound over to
ai,pear at Court. This man Snyder is not the
only beer seller who violates the Sunday law.
His arrest should be a warning to others guilty
of similar offences.
OUR BEAUTIFUL CAPITOL PARK is daily becom
ing, as it should, a favorite resort for ladies and
gentlemen, and many an hour is now whiled
away in the evening, by a respectable class of
our citizens, among its cooling and refreshing
shades. This is as it should be. Let decent
people make it a resort during the hot hours of
summer, and all rowdies and improper chardc
ters will soon find no attraction there, for they
intuitively shrink from contact with all else
save their own cherished companionship.
SFICVER.S. —Several "sweet refreshing show
ers" of rain have fallen recently, bringing into
still bolder relief the green trees and the fra
grant flowers which have added beanty,to our
homes end our landscapes for a few weeks past.
Vegetation is now growing beautifully, and the
purified atmosphere is redolent with the per
fume of bursting buds and opening flowers :
"Fragrant the fertile earth
After soft showers."
NATIONAL liztt.N.A committee of promi
nent citizens of New York announce that a
prizo of five hundred dollars will be awarded
for a National Hymn, which must be, not a
war song, but purely patriotic ; to consist of
not less than sixteen nor more than forty lines,
exclusive of a chorus or burden, which is re
garded as essential, and to be of marked
rhythm and popular melody. For the words
and music from the same hand, five hundred
Oollars will be paid, or a gold medal of that
value will be awarded. For the hymn alone,
or for the music alone, (if original,) two hun
dred and fifty dollars will be given.
SODUNDRELISM. —Several little girls, children
of highly respectable citizens residing on Front
street, were grossly insulted yesterday by three
human brutes, who enticed them into the park
between 'Market and Chestnut streets and made
the most infamous propositions to them. In
or oration of the fact was sent to the Mayor's
office, and officers were at once despatched to
arrest the scoundrels. One of them was cap
tured, but the others fled, and after a spirited
and exciting chase the officers were obliged to
abandon the pursuit. We hope the ruffians
may yet be found and arrested. Such scoun
drelism ought not to go unpunished.
SPOT THE TRAITORS.—The fact cannot be dis
guised, that there are in this community men
who sympathise with the secessionists, and who
would, if they could with safety to themselves,
give aid and comfort to the traitors now in arms
against the government. These men cannot
expect that an indignant community will long
continuo to bear with them, or that they will
be permitted to shield themselves under the cry
of persecution for opinion's sake. We are of
tholie who have constantly urged moderation
and fabearance toward this class of men, nor
would we ever consent that our community
should imitate the conduct of the traitors in
the south toward Union men, by mobbing and
hanging them. But this much we do say, that
our own safety demands the secession sympa
thisers in our midst to be closely watched. The
time has passed when any man with a true
loyal heart will find fault with this caution.
Let those complain who feel that they are hit.
We repeat the caution, spot the traitors, and care
fully note alt their movement&
WHAT TO SEND.-A member of one of the
companies that left this city writes to us that
the friends they left behind are "killing them
with kindness." He says the volunteers are
constantly receiving supplies of provisions con
sisting chiefly of rich food, cakes and pies, pre
setves, etc. The natural consequence is, that
in the morning after a company has thus been
feasted, many of the men have to be sent to
the hospital with cholera morbus, diarrhoea or
ilyseutery. Our correspondent writes that
while the soldiers appreciate and feel grateful
:'ur the kindness of friends at home, they would
prefer io see it demonstrated in some other
way. He says the troops are sufficiently well
od ; they have plenty to eat of good whole
toed, and generally try to have it as well
ceAud as possible. Therefore these " fancy "
dinners are not required by them, however
:crateful in y be the idea that they are so well
iumembered at home. We suggest that a
vouch better way of testifying our interest in
t[ comfort and welfare of the soldiers will be
to get shirts, socks, soft felt hats, or "have
lock" cap covers, and send them. All these
;re articles really needed by them, and which
rcill do them some service. In the extreme
:.i , t weather they experience, the need of some
cool style of hat, or a cover of the style recent
ly described in the TELEGRAPH, is very keenly
felt. A large supply of substantial socks is
also very desirable.
WHAT DOES IT INDIOATE ? —The forest trees
have a heavier foliage than they have borne
for many years. Doe; this promise a prolific
season in vegetation generally ?
CAMP CIIRTIN.—There are notrtabout three
thousand volunteers in Camp Curtin, all en
listed for three years or during the war. The
companies will be formed into regiments this
SOLDIERS will do well to make a note of this:
A littlo musk wrapped up in a piece of paper
and carried in the vest pocket is a sure safe
guard against vermin of any kind infecting the
clothes or body.
PHYSICAL TRAINING of GlRLS.—Without this
there can be no lasting progress. The Sand
wich Island proverb says :
"If strong be the frame of the mother,
Her sons shall make laws for the people."
MORE TROOPS COMING.—The two companies
of the Fort Sumter garrison will reach here to
night over the Lebanon Valley Railroad en
route for Chambersburg. Several companies of
the first regiment Ignited States Cavalry are ex
pected to pass through here in a few clays from
THE CITY Tams contained only three or four
occupants last night, worshippers at the shrine
of Bacchus. One of them, whose spirit-ual
manifestations were somewhat violent, was sent
to prison for forty-eight hours. As a general
thing our city was unusually quiet and orderly
yesterday, but few soldiers being permitted to
A GOOD HIT. —" Will you permit a lady to
occupy this seat ?" said a gentleman to an
other, the other day in a railroad car. "Is she
an advocate of woman's rights ?" asked the
gentleman who was invited to " vacate."—
" She is," replied he who was standing.—
" Well, then, let her take the benefit of her
doctrine, and stand up."
THE CAMERON GUARDS reached Bridgeport at
twelve o'clock last night, and were met by a
large delegation of persons from this city, many
of them ladies, who furnished the "boys" with
an ample supply of good and wholesome "fod
der," which proved very acceptable. They
seemed to be in good health and fine spirits,
as did the entire regiment. The train reached
Chambersburg about six o'clock this morning.
STRAWBERBIE of large size and delicious
flavor, grown on the Keystone farm near this
city, will be offered in market on Wednesday
morning by Mr. Mish. These berries are far
superior, in every respect, to those brought
here by hucksters from the South, and should
be purchased in preference by all loyal citizens.
We should not send our cash to rebel States to
pay for fruits and vegetables which can be fur
nished by our own farmers and gardeners in
sufficient quantity and of good quality.
PASSAGS OF TROOFS.—This afternoon two re
giments from Camp Johnson passed through
this city on their way to Chambersburg. Three
car loads of dragoons from Carlisle barracks,
mostly new recruits, also arrived here, and
passed over the Pennsylvania railroad west
ward. Their destination is said to be New
Mexico, to relieve older and more experienced
troops now stationed there. The latter will be
ordered east to take an active part in the war.
Row IN A BEER SHOP ON SUNDAY. —A TOW
occurred yesterday in Snyder's beer shop, re
sulting in the prosecution of Snyder's wife for
assault and battery upon Henry Manes. She
was arrested this morning by officer Cole, and
taken before alderman Kline, who bound her
over to appear at the next Court. We have
noted in another item the arrest of the hus
band of Mrs. Snyder for selling beer on Sun
day. All discreditable institutions of this
kind (and our city is cursed with a number of
them) should be crushed out.
A Srowricaxr. WA.RNING. —Daring the ex
citement attending the discussion of the resolu
tion of fealty to the government, by the Gen
eral Assembly (Old School Presbyterian) at
Philadelphia last week, some individual, who
had not the fear of the clergy before his eyes,
suspended a stuffed figure from one of the
trees, with this significant inscription :

all had an opportunity of admiring the grace

tive of the doom of traitors. We shall hoar
magnified statements of this on the return
home of some of these clerical Union•haters.
The resolution was finally accepted by the As-,
sembly, some forty of the delegates (mostly
southererns) voting in the negative.
RESOLUTIONS OF THANKS.-WO have already
noticed the bountiful supply of good things
sent to the State Capital Guards by a number
of ladies of this city, and the enthusiastic re
ception which their special "commissariat"
was honored on his arrival at camp. A meet
ing of the company was subsequently held,
and the following resolutions unanimously
adopted and forwarded to us for publication :
Resolved, That the thanks of this company
are hereby tendered to the ladies of Harrisburg
who have so kindly and generously sent us a
lot of provisions, contistiug of delicacies that
"Uncle Sam" does not serve us with. The
motives through which they were furnished
are duly and most gratefully appreciated by us.
Resolved, That we will ever hold in kind re
membrance the many acts of kindness that
the citizens generally of Harrisburg have so
generously bestowed upon us, and they can
rest assured that when the hour comes for us
to strike a blow against the rebels who are try
ing to destroy our country, we will endeavor
to sustain the patriotism of the city we repre
The guards are now comfortably quartered
on the grounds of the Franklin County Agri
cultural Society. One of the "boys" writes
that they are all well and in good spirits, and
anxious to pitch into the rebels. From present
indications they will not remain in a state of
"masterly inactivity" much longer. May they
go into the contest with the spirit of the Spar
tan sons, resolved to return with their shields

unteers now in the service of their country,
met this forenoon. They approved the system
adopted by the Relief Committee of this city,
and directed the payments to be made, as here
tofore, by the officers of that committee. An
unsuccessful attempt was made to have the
names of the commissioned officers of the sev

IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD, all the speeches,
messages, proclamations, made and issued by
those advocating southern conduct, are filled
with appeals to history, and posterity, and
with attempted justification of their treason,
inthe eyes of the World. If such appeals have
any meaning, the world to which they are ad
dressed must be the christian world of Europe,
which has answered them with a unanimous
verdict of condemnation. During the whole
course of this century, with its frequent vio
lent convulsions, no event has received such
bitter denunciation from the European people,
and the European press, as has been poured
upon the treasonable deeds of the South. Du
ring the past two months, every foreign mail
comes to us loaded with expressions of indig
nation called forth by the frantic Saturnalia of
the South. And yet even down to the latest
dates from the Old World they did not know
there the whole extent of the madness, infa
my and treason practiced by the so-called
Southern Confederacy. We have noticed the
above facts in connection with this advertise
ment for the special purpose of calling your at
tention to the large stock of dry goods, and

This town is completely overrun with Uncle

Capt. M'Mullin's Independent Rangers. Pas

About twelve o'clock last night a squad of
rebel cavalry made a dash at the out-posts of the
28th New York regiment, and fired upon them.
The alarm was immediately sounded, and the
regiment turned out. A scouting party was
dispatched in pursuit of the enemy. Their fire
was returned by the outposts of the 28th, with
what effect is not known, as the night was ex
