Thursday Afternoon, June 6, 1861
FIRST COURANT CITY GUARDS will meet in the
Odd Fellow's Hall, No. 68, North Second
street, this evening, for the transaction of busi
ness of importance. Every member is desired
CAPTAIN EYSTER, of the Cameron Guards,
arrived here last evening, on his return from
Philadelphia, and left this morning for Cham
bersburg. The Cs.pt tin looks as if soldier-life
agreed with him.
SLIFER GUARDS.—This is the name of the
company from Lewisburg, Union county, whose
arrival we noticed yesterday. The company is
named after Col. Eli Slifer, the present Secre
tary of the Commonwealth, and is made up of
residents of his town and county.
EXCURSION TICKETS will be issued by the
Pennsylvania Central Railroad Company, to
persons desirous of attending the Annual
Meeting of the Grand Encampment at Pitts
burg next Tuesday. A large gathering of the
members of the Order is anticipated
SERIOLIS ACClDENT.—Yesterday afternoon, Mr.
Eli Holingeworth, connected with the Penn
sylvania Agricultural machine shop in North
street, while handling some machinery met
with an accident which crushed three fingers of
his right hand, one of which, it is feared, will
have to be amputated.
ANOTHER FLAG.-Our citizens continue to man
ifest their patriotism by displaying the " red,
white and blue." This morning we noticed in
front of Kr. George W. Al'Calla's jewelry store
a newly-erected pole, from the top of which
will soon float a large and beautiful American
flag. Long may it wave !
LABORERS FOR FARMERS.—Farmers have been
fearing that they will not be able to employ
laborers, but the closing of manufactories dur
ing the present hostilities will enable them to
find plenty of laborers in the cities, who will be
glad to get employmant till business revives.
There are plenty of men for farmers and plenty
for soldiers, and the former are just as useful
at the present time as the latter.
RIVER BATHING is very good exercise, and as
a sanitary measure ought to be encouraged ;
but boys who indulge in it should seek some
retired locality, where their persons will not be
exposed to the full view of lady promenaders
on Front street, as is the case almost daily. If
the boys disregard this friendly hint, we trust
the Chief of Police will take measures to abate
the nuisance—for such it really is.
The OLD SOLDIERS of our city, always among
the first to do honor to the memory of the pa
triots and heroes of seventy-six, design holding
a meeting shortly to make arrangements for
their annual celebration of Independence Day.
Let our citizens generally follow the example of
the veterans who "f. night and bled in freedom's
cause," and get up a demonstration suitable
to the crisis and creditable to the city.
ENFORCE TILE LAW. -We notice a large
number of dogs running at large without
muzzles, in violation of law. If owners of
canines will not comply with the provisions of
the ordinance on this subject, the Chief of Po
lice should faithfully discharge ]as duty by
entering complaint to the Mayor against all
offenders. The public safety demands a strict
enforcement of the law, in view of the advent
of the "mad dog" season.
ATTENTION NURSES I—GROUND HOOPS !—We
all have admired the alacrity and self-de
nial with which the ladies have offered their
services in the capacity of nurses for the army
hospitals. But we did not know, and perhaps
many of them did not know, how much it
would be necessary for them to sacrifice in or
der to discharge the duties of their office. The
last general order issued to them from Wash
ington reads thus : "Dress—A regular dress
will be appointed by the board, which each
nurse will be required to adopt—no hoops being
allowed in the service. A committee on outfit
will be appointed to superintend the outfit of
the nursing corps, which will be regulated by
the amount of baggage allowed to each indi
Env HOME PRODIJOTS.—On frequent occasions,
recently, we have condemned the practice, in
dulged in to a considerable extent, of giving,
aid and comfort to the rebels by purchasing
southern products, in preference to articles of
superior quality grown upon free soil at home.
It is gratifying to know that our course in this
matter meets with general approval. The fol_
lowing communication, handed to us, this
morning by a prominent and influential gen
ticman, we feel assured speaks the sentiments
of all loyal and patriotic citizens :
MR. EDITOR :—ln yesterday's issue you spec:
of the abundance of strawberries in our mar
ket, and say that those of our own growth are
perfen red because they are much richer in
flavor than the southern ones. This is true ;
but there is another reason why the produce
raised by our own people is and should be
preferred. That reason lies in patriotism. No
man who loves his country more than he does
the dollar will aid the enemies of that country
so much as to purchase a single article brought
from the south, when the same thing can he
had *Om our own citizens. Every cent spent
in the buying of strawberries, or any
other edible brought from the south,
is really and truly helping the traitors
to execute their wicked designs against our
government. If we -refuse to assist them
in this way, they will learn the quicker how
utterly dependent they are upon the indus
trious north for the means of subsistence.—
stop buying from them—stop encouraging
some of our hucksters from dealing with them,
and a heavy blow will be struck at them.—
Why should we give money for these articles
brought from the pestiferous south; when we
have many in the same business who are taxed
to support the families of the volunteers who
have gone to put down the very rebellion in
stigated by those who send their produce to us
and use the money against us? Is it right?—
They have refused to buy any atticie manufac
tured in the north ; let us refuse to buy any
vegetables grown in the south, lest the poison
of secession bring on a disease worse than
death—the disease of disunion.
APPOINTMENT.-Mr. Wm. C. Ross, of Middle
town, has been appointed to a clerkship in the
United States Arsenal, at Philadelphia.
JFIT. DAVIS has notified the Federal troops
to quit Virginia in ten days. It is understood
they will not comply.
PREACHING THIS EVENING. —Rev. E. Reed, an
aged and much respected minister of the Phil
adelphia Conference, many years ago the preach
er in charge at Harrisburg, will preach in the
Locust Street Methodist church this evening at
PATRIOTIC EITPLOYMENT.—We had occasion to
visit the house of a friend last evening, and
found his worthy lady up to the elbows in
dough, making bread and pies, which she in
formed us was intended for the volunteers at
Camp Curtin. ''Bully for her." Our soldier
friends will long remember the generous hos
pitality of the ladies of this city.
Tun CITY TOMBS contained several "bum
mers" last night, two or three of whom were
sent to prison and the balance discharged.—
The most onerous and unjust tax imposed upon
community is that for the support of legalized

THE PIC - NIC OF THE UNION ASSEMBLY which
was postponed on account of the weather, will
positively take place on Saturday, June Bth.
The notice in yesterday's paper, stating that
Monday would be the day, was a mistake. The
committee having met decided upon Saturday.
The managers have taken great pains to make
this, their first pic-nic, the affair of the season,
and wish it to be distinctly understood that
no improper characters will be admitted on the
DEAD BODY FOUND. —The body of Michael
Brown, drowned some five weeks since in the
Swatara creek, was found by a fisherman recent
ly near Collin's station. He was identified by
a watch found on his person, having the ini
tials of his name on the inside casing. He was
buried along the river shore, but will be re
moved in a short time. It will be remember
ed that another young man, drowned at the
same time, was also found by a party of fisher
men, after having been in the water nearly two
STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL—The ladies of the
Presbyterian church, Middletown, are now en
gaged in holding a Strawberry Festival at the
Town Hall, which will continue until Saturday
evening, the object being to liquidate the
debt existing upon the parsonage. They ex
tend a cordial invitation to the citizens of Har
risburg to aid them, as they have made ample
provision for the entertainment of all. The
afternoon train down and the nine o'clock train
up will afford a fine opportunity to those of our
citizens who desire to assist the ladies in this
CARE OF STOVES AND PIPES.—Those who have
taken down their stoves and pipes should take
care that they are placed in dry situations,
where they will not be exposed to dampness,
otherwise they may be more injured by rust
than by constant use during the winter. By
covering stoves with a thin coating of warm
linseed oil, however, rubbed on with a woolen
cloth, they may be set in cellars without inju
ry. Those who have not dry places to store
their stoves and pipes, we recommend to use
the linseed oil for the prevention of rust.
ARRIVAL OF MILITARY.—The German Legion
of Williamsport, accompanied by the Silver
Cornet Band of that place, arrived here at noon
to-day, and went into quarters at Camp Curtin.
The company is composed of nearly one hun
dred fine-looking and able-bodied Germans, all
armed with muskets. The same train brought
a number of recruits to fill up the ranks of
companies now in camp.
Three companies arrived here from Carlisle
between eleven and twelve o'clock, and were
immediatly sent in a special train to Camp
Wayne, near West Chester. The United States
Pittsburg Zouaves are expected to reach here
this evening en route for New York city,
THE IRISH PROTESTANTS DECLARE THEIR LOY
ALTY.—The Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania of
the American Protestant Association, (compos
ed principally of Irishmen,) closed its annual
session in Philadelphia on Tuesday. The Com
mittee on the State of the - Union offered the
following preamble and resolutions as expres
sive,of the sentiment of that body on the pres
ent National crisis :
WHEREAS, Positive obedience to the Consti
tution and laws of our country, with an undy
ing,love for the perpetuation of its union in
tact, is made one of the fundamental principles
of our affiliation, and without which, no one
can be admitted into fraternal relations with
us, knowing as we do in this matter no secta
rian or political divisions, no sectional creeds
and no partizan disputations; and, whereas,
the present fearful situation of our country,
rent as she is by rebellion, distracted by dis
union, and harrassed by treason and traitors,
calls for the sympathy and hearty support of
every lover of the land of Washington and of
peace, law and union. Therefore,
Resolved, That as an Order, and as individuals,
we despise traitors, and hate treason with a
perfect hatred, and look upon any that would
pluck a star from our bright constellation, or
sap the foundation of our glorious Union, as
our direst foe.
Resolved, That we have every confidence in
our Chief Executive and his Cabinet, together
with the illustrious Lieutenant General Winfield
Scott, and believe them to be fully equal to all
the wants of the present crisis,
Resolved That we hereby tender them our
hearty support, our dearest sympathy, and our
Resolved, That our representatives to B. W.
G. Lodge be instructed to present this action
to our National body, and ask their hearty sup
port of the same.
The above resolutions, which breathe the
true spirit of patriotism and devotion to the
Union, were adopted unanimously. We learn
that the session was a most harmonious one,
and its closing ceremonies were exceedingly hi
teresting, the members joining in singing the
"Star Spangled Banner." This Order has been
in existence for a number of years, •nd its
membership comprises nearly the entire Irish
Prostestant population of our State—gallant
and true-hearted men who always "keep step
to the music of the Union," and who were
among the first to arm in its defence against
the rebels and traitors of the south.

THE CENTRE GUARDS, of Bellefonte, received
orders to march to-day, and will arrive here
in the Western train at two o'clock to-morrow
AT HALF-MAST.—For a day or two east many
of the flags in this city have been displayed at
half-mast, as a token of respect to the memory
of the lamented Senator Douglas. The pro
clamation by the Secretary of War relative to
the death of this illustrious statesman was read
to the various regiments in Camp Curtin yes
terday, agreeably to orders from that depart
THE APPLE TRADE. - 'the hucksters con
tinue to supply our citizens with an inferior
quality of apples, at prices which give them a
decidedly silvery taste, and render them a
luxury which poor people cannot afford to in
dulge in. We anxiously look forward to the
"good time coming," when the apple trees,
now laden with swelling buds, soon to burst
into variegated and fragrant blossoms, will
yield abundant supplies of this excellent and
wholesome fruit, at prices suited to the cir
cumstances of the poorest in community.
From present indications the crop will be the
best gathered iu this region for many years.
THE COMING HARVEST. —Every day we mee - ',.
with agriculturists who inform us that the
crops in this region, unless visited by draw
backs in the shape of drought, will be of unu
sual excellence. This state of things holds
good all along the line of our railroads so far as
information reaches us. The appearance of
the suburbs within our observation confirms
these statements. Everything growing appears
to be growing finely, and the markets are stock
ed with a plethoric supply of summer vegeta
bles. Corn hereabouts is generally above the
ground, potatoes ditto, while grass promises
extremely well. As forage of all kinds is likely
to be dear during the coming winter, abundant
crops will be a blessing.
A WARLIKE MAGAZINE.—The Atlantic Month
ly for June is essentially a war number; war
like in the tone of its leading articles, in its
verses, and in the purposes for which it is pub
lished, for the Boston papers tell us not only
that this "army number" has "been expressly
prepared by some of our ablest writers," and
that "it is prepared to send twenty thousand
copies to be distributed among the soldiers,"
but that a largo instalment had already been
despatched to Fortress Monroe, in advance of
publication, accompanied by such light reading
as Smile's "Self-Help" and "Twelve Years of
a Soldier's Life." Massachusetts sends men
to fight, ice to keep them cool, and literature
to improve their minds. Certainly the Bay
State deserves to wear the laurel.
THE LITTLE WANDERER.—The little girl, Mary
Furmen, who arrived here the other night from
Elmira in search of her mother, has not yet
succeeded in the object of her mission, and the
affair still remains involved in mystery. All
efforts to find her mother have proved abortive,
and the probability is that she never resided
iu this city. The little wanderer was kindly
provided for by Mr. John Williams and his
wife until yesterday afternoon, when 'she was
taken in charge by our kind-hearted and bene
volent friend Judge Ives, who designs accom
panying her to the north with a view of ascer
taining the whereabouts of her parents, who,
it is supposed, live in Williamsport or some
town in that section of the State, having moved
from Elmira a few months ago.
FLAG RAISING IN " OLD DERRY. " A few
days ago a large and beautiful pole, with the
stars and stripes floating from its top, was rais
ed by a number of the gallant young men of
Hockersville and vicinity. The demonstration
was one every way creditable to the patriotism
of the participants. Among the crowd collected
on the occasion was an individual \silo had for
some time been spotted as a secession sympa
thiser, and when the fact was made known to
the "boys" they made the village too hot to
hold him. He was groaned and hissed by the
men, stigmatized as a traitor by the boys, and
treated with contempt by the women. Such
was the storm of indignation excited by the
fellow's presence, that fearing personal chastise
ment he beat a precipitate and in glorious re
treat. The people of old Derry tolerate no
traitors or treason sympathisers in their midst.
