Wednesday Afternoon, July 16, 1861.
ILLNESS OF THE MAYOR We, regret to an
nounce the illness of Mayor Kepner, who is now
confined to his room by a slight attack of ty
phcid fever. We hope to see him at his official
post again in the course of a few days.
ME WHEAT CROP.-Our exchanges through
out the State give most flattering accounts of
the crops. Everywhere in Pennsylvania the
wheat crop is more than an average one, and is
being harvested in good condition. The toil
ing agriculturists of the old Keystone have
abundant reason to be thankful.
Cons ARO POTATOS. — The recent rains have
produced the most marked and favorable change
in the growth of corn and potatos. The pros
pect of a large yield of these crops in our coun
ty is excellent. The growth of each at present
is astonishingly rapid. It affords us pleasure to
chronicle this fact—particularly respecting the
hist named crop—for we, like "all the world
and the rest of mankind," relish a good potato!
DISAPPEARING.—The Comet which has been
" spreading itself" in the north-western heavens
for two weeks past, is fast disappearing, being
scarcely visible to the naked eye at this time.
The astronomers have settled the question in
regard to its being the great Comet of Charles
Vth, negatively, and we may therefore still be
on the look-out for the expected celestial won
INCOMBUSTIBLE WHITE WASH.—Pass fine fresh
ly slaked lime through a fine sieve, and to six
quarts of the lime thus obtained, add one quart
of the purest salt and one gallon of water, boil
the mixture and skim it clean. Then, to every
five gallons of this mixture, add one pound of
alum, half a pound copperas, and put in slowly
three-fourths of a pound of potash and four quarts
of fine sand. It adheres firmly to wood or
Tire FIRST CITY ZOUAVES drilled in Market
square last evening in presence of hundreds of
spectators, many of them ladies. The young
men looked well, marched beautifully, and
went through the regular Zonave drill with a
degree of skill and proficiency which elicited
universal commendation. This splendid mili
tary corps is a credit to the city, and the people
should take pride iu sustaining it. The mem
berdaip of the company should be increased to
at least one hundred rank and file.
ARRIVAL OF MILITARY.—The fourth regiment
of the Pennsylvania Reserve Corps arrived here
at twelve o'clock last night, and marched from
the depot to Camp Curtin by the way of Market
and Third streets. The regiment is composed
of fine looking men, all of them neatly uni
formed. The probability is that they will re
ceive arms here and soon be ordered to join
Gen. Patterson's division, to take the place of
one of the returning three months' regiments.
The regiment is officered as follows : Colonel,
R. G. March; Lieutenant-Colonel, John F. Gaul;
Major, R. M. McClure.
STSLICH WITH A. STON3L—This morning two
pmall boys got into an "irrepressible conflict"
iu Market square. One of them threw a atone
at his combatant, which struck him on the left
temple with such force as to knock the lad
down. The wound was a severe one, and the
little fellow cried piteously as he wended his
way home, a commingled stream of tears and
blood disfiguring his otherwise handsome coun
tenance. We did not learn the names of the
youthful combatants. Throwing stones, either
in fun or earnest, is a very dangerous operation,
and boys should not indulge in it.
A WILD MAN.—About two weeks ago au insane
man escaped from the asylum, at Roxborough,
and for eight days was roaming among the fast
nesses of the Wissahickon. He was seen sev
eral times, and each time in a state of entire
nudity, indulging in uncouth gambols. At one
time he would be seen bathing in the waters of
the Wissahickon, and the next instant perched
on a high cliff, rendering all approach impossi
ble. On Wednesday last a large force of police
officers from the city set out in pursuit and suc
ceeded in capturing him. He is said to bo
fearfully violent when in custody.
BOGUS ThopmEs or THE W.ut.—The number
of relics of the war -which are afloat, and the
estimation in which they are held, has induced
speculation. We are informed that parties in
New York are now engaged in manufacturing
" relics," consisting of articles of clothing,
military bath, swords, etc. These will be dis
posed of, to a patriotic people, as genuine
trophies of the victories of our forces. In ad
dition to this humbug, "shinplasters," pur
porting to be from Virginia, are being printed
to supply au increasing demand, whilst secession
flags, also of New - York manufacture, are in
the market. Under these circumstances, it be
comes the duty of every man who has a due
regard for his pocket, to examine well into the
authenticity of trophies before purchasing.
AN OLD FEMALE OFFENDER. CAPTURED.—About
ten months ago one Avy Hamilton alias Avaline
White, hailing from Elmira, was arrested in
this city for stealing jewelry and other articles
from boarders at Hoffman's tavern and the Mil
itary Hall. She was tried, convicted and sen
tenced to prison for several months. Her term
expired a few weeks ago, since which time she
has been living a life of vagrancy, in connection
will Mary Toy, whose name frequently figures
in our police reports. The severe punishment
which followed Avy's former dishonest acts does
not seem to have benefitted her, for yesterday
she was arrested by the Chief of Police for
stealing various articles of jewelry from five
different persons at the City Hotel opposite the
depot. She was committed to the lock-up and
subsequently had a hearing before Justice
Deader, acting in the Mayor's place, who com
mitted her to prison for trial. The woman is
evidently an incorrigible thief, and sustained
that reputation at her former home in Elmira.
She is likely to remain in her present quarters
for a long time.
ANOTHSR NEW YORK REarionrrarrived here
this morning over the Lebanon Valley Railroad
and proceeded directly to Washington city.
Tan FOURTH WLSCONSIN.REGEHMT, which left
that State on Monday, is expected to reach Har
risburg this evening en route for the upper Po
tomac to join Gen. Patterson's division.
DINNER POSTPONED.—The ladies who have the
management of the collation to be served up
to the returning volunteers, have very prop
erly determined to postpone it until such time
as all the companies from this city shall have
reached home, and then entertain them with
"one grand feed." In the meantime the col
lecting committees will continue to solicit "ma
terial aid," and we trust that all of our citizens
will be patriotic enough to contribute according
to their means.
A PEDESTRIAN TRIP. —A party of four Phila
delphians are now making a tour through Penn
sylvania on foot, attired a la militaire, with knap
sacks and blankets. One of them writing home
gives the details of an amusing adventure. At
a small village the pedestrians were arrested en
the charge of being deserters from the United
States army, and only escaped when the fact
was developed that they were related to some
of the most prominent citizens of Philadelphia
and were on a tour of pleasure.
THE RETURNING VOLUNTEERS.—The citizens of
other towns in this State are holding meetings
and making arrangements for a public reception
of the returning volunteers. No movement of
the kind has yet been made in our city, except
by the ladies, who propose to furnish the boys
with a 'dinner. A public demonstration and
cordial welcome is due to those who promptly
responded to the call of their country, and ral
lied at the first tap of the drum to the defence
of our national flag, and would also be a means
of encouraging them to return, should their
services be needed in the future. We suggest
that a town meeting be called at once, and a
committee appointed to make the necessary ar
rangements for a proper reception of our gal
THE CITY HEALTH rx Sunman. Individual
care and cleanliness are more necessary at the
present time than at any other during the year,
in order to maintain the city health. Every
housekeeper, by discouraging the practice of
servant girls, of throwing offal on the streets,
in violation of the law, can benefit the com
munity. This remark applies with much force
to the occupants of tenant houses in the streets
which are narrow. The July and August sun
putrify this garbage, and a miasma is generated
as subtle and deadly as that of a stagnant
marsh. The patrolling policemen, also, should
now report all breakers of city ordinances.
Servants often throw heaps of offal and garbage
" around the corner of the house," on vacant
lots and convenient places generally, without
their employers being aware of their practices.
BLACKBERRY Wm AND CORDIAL.—As the
blackberry season is now hear at hand, we pub
lish the following excellent recipes, furnished
by a notable housewife. There are no wines or
cordials equal to those of domestic manufac
ture, and in this region where berries are
abundant and cheap every family should pro
vide an ample supply of these wholesome and
delicious drinks :
Blackberry line.—To three quarts of black
berry juice, add one quart of water and three
and a half pounds of sugar, white or brown.
Put in an open jar, and let it stand two or three
days to work ; then bottle, and set away in a
cool place for a year before using.
Blackberry Cordial.—Take any convenient
quantity of Blackberries, and stew in a preserv
ing kettle for half an hour ; then strain, and
boil again for half an hour, adding one pound
of sugar to each quait of juice, using spices to
the taste. When cool, add one gill or more of
genuine Cognac brandy to each quart of juice.
Then bottle and cork tight.
WOMEN Alin nu Was..—The women of the
loyal States, who have already exhibited a com
mendable degree of patriotism, and done much
for the cause and the comfort of our gallant
volunteers, must not suppose that when they
have provided nurses for the military hospitals,
and supplied them with everything needful for
the sick and wounded, that they have borne
their full part of the burdens of the war. If
the war continues, it will increase every man's
expenses and reduce his income, and the econo
mies of the household will become more impor
tant. There are very few families that cannot
retrench to a substantial amount in articles of
mere luxury and show. There are few women
who cannot help essentially to alleviate the
burden of dull times to the father of the family
by a reduction of personal expenses, without
the sacrifice of anything essential to their re
spectability or comfort. If the Paris styles are
not followed as closely and conscientiously as
usual, and enough is saved in bonnets, ribbons
and laces this year to arm and equip a volunteer
for the campaign, the woman who makes the
patriotic sacrifice will not be less attractive. In
fact, woman may bear almost equally with man
the labors and sacrifices that war make necessa
ry, and is only denied the privilege of exposing
her life for the country on the battle field.
There she falls in the person of her husband,
lover and son, and suffers thus often more than
those who perish.
SCOLDINGI.—If laughter begets fat, it is no less
true that scolding is the parent of meagerness.
Who ever saw a plump termagant ? The virago
is scraggy—scragginess is the badge of all her
tribe. It would seem that the attrition of a
fierce, exacting temper gives sharpness to the
human frame as inevitably as a gritty grind
stone puts a wiry edge on a broad axe. Artiste
understand this fact, and govern themselves ac
cordingly. They invariably represent ladies
supposed to be given to "the rampage" as re
markably high in bone. Shrews are thus de •
pitted in comic valentines, and all the illustra
tions of "Curtain Lectures" have presented the
"rib" of Mr. Caudle without a particle of fat.
Lavater, referring to female firebrands, says
flatly, to their faces, that their noses are sharp.
We have a dim idea that he mentions some ex
ceptional cases of ladies with snub noses, who
are given to mobbing their husbands, but these
form a mild variety, and only a small pertion
of the genus scold.

RECRUITS. —A party of twenty-seven young
men, recruits for the new artillery regiment
now in process of organization, arrived here
this afternoon. The regiment is rapidly filling
up with men of the right stripe to make good
Row IN TANNER'S ALLEY.-A row occurred in
Tanner's alley this forenoon among a party of
drunken soldiers. Some of them came out of
the conflict with broken heads and damaged
countenances. The most inebriated man in the
crowd proved to be the best fighter, escaping
unhurt and leaving three of his assailants upon
the field wounded. The police officers not be
ing about no arrests were made.
TROOPS COMING. —There will soon be a general
movement of troops through this city, the va
rious regiments constituting the reserve corps
having been ordered into active service. Most
of them will be attached to General Patterson's
division now marching through Virginia in the
direction of Winchester. In a short time all
the camps except the one at this place will be
vacated for a season.
FUNERAL OF A VOLUNTEER.—The funeral of
the late Joshua W. Mucnch, of the Lochiel
Greys, took place this afternoon, and was the
largest that has occurred in our city for a long
time. An immense concourse of people thronged
the street in the vicinity of Capt. Muench's
residence, and the cortege was made up of a
long line of carriages, omnibuses and pedes
trians. The First City Zouaves participated in
the obsequies, and buried the deceased with the
usual military honors. As the long procession
moved on its solemn march to the ceme
tery, men looked sad and felt that a
brave young heart had ceased to beat.
ThA firing at the grave by the Zouaves was exe
cuted with a degree of skill and accuracy scarce
ly to be expected from such young'and inexpe
rienced soldiers. The youthful volunteer who
so promptly responded to the call of his coun
try, and went forth but a few brief months ago
inhighheulth andwith sanguine hopes of abright
future, and who would have distinguished him
self under his country's flag had his life been
spared, now rests peacefully beneath the green
turf of our beautiful city of the dead—

may be estimated at $2 a day, and their annual loss by
sickness at an average of ten days each in the year.—
This gives a total loss of $240,000,u00 a sum three times
