THE I'SIoN PRAYER MEETING will be held in
the Pre:byterian church, corner of Market
square, to morrow (Saturday) afternoon, com

EILLED.- Sanuel Dunlap, a brakesman
on the Pennsylvania Railroad, was instantly

in the act of coupling cars. His remains were
wnveyed to the residence of his parents at

rtking columns it will be seen that Miss
of Pittsburg, who has been sojourning
it tl.is city for several weeks, proposes to de

Metliodist church, next Tuesday evening.
Tae laavasr Hums of the Cumberland Coun

at eleven o'clock. A large turn-out from the
rural districts is anticipated. Farmers, above
all other people, have reason to be thankful
BARN VrESTD. — On Tuesday evening last the
barn of our friend Dr. Jacob Shope, near Hum
ruelstown, was consumed with all its contents,
con3istin!- of several hundred bushels of wheat,
tyr. oats. a threshing machine and other im
pl,inunts. It is supposed that the fire origi

1 tILROAD ACCIDENT.-FALSE REPORT.-It WB2
E—ri , I here last evening that the passenger
i!•c:i containing the "buck-tail" regiment, run
ILe track and upset shortly after leaving the
ht n .11 on the west side of the river, and that
man was killed and several others injured.
No ,uch accident occurred. The rumor grew
out ci the upsetting of a freight train, caused by
itinidog over some cattle on the track. No
p ts. Alae injured, nor were the cars materially
WELCOXII. —The members of the
Washington Rifle company, of Lykenstown, in
this county, were honored with a public recep
tion on their return home. The Towne,/ says
the whole town participated in the demonstra
tion, and all the houses were gaily decorated
withwreaths and banners. Fun and frolic were
the order of the day, and several
. dances were
improvised and kept up until a late hour.
Quite a number of the "boys" intend re•enlist

lONISED ON TILE CARS . —Two soldiers of the
fourteenth regiment, who came from Carlisle
last evening, were robbed on the cars. One Of
them lost his entire three month's wages, and
the other ten or twelve dollars. No doubt
many more were victimized at the same time,
of which we have no report. At the various
prints where volunteers have been paid off,
pi , k pockets have operated extensively and
successfully, reaping a rich pecuniary harvest.
Disguised in uniforms, these light-fingered ras
cals mingle freely among our soldiers without
exciting suspicion, and avail themselves of
every favorable opportunity to rob the brave
men of their hard earned a ages.
"Tut FoamEß Ditas."—The degeneracy of
our tiniee, especially in the matter of honesty
and integrity in public affairs, is most sadly
marked. A gentleman in middle life furnishes
to one of the papers the following incident of
his boyish days :
saving occasion to write, he thought to sup
ply himself with a sheet of letter paper from
the desk of his grandfather, who at the time
held an office under the Federal Government.
"What are you doing there ?" said the old
- Getting a sheet of paper, sir."
"Put it back, sir, put it back; that paper be
?wigs to the Gore•nument of the Ended States."
How exceedingly old-fashioned that sounds
in these days of wholesale speculation, fraud,
robbery and plunder ! Well may we sigh for
the return of "Auld Lang Syne."
tiRTURNID VULVNTEURS.--Six. more companies
of the fourteenth regiment reached this city
itt , t night from Carlisle, accompanied by the
field and start' officers. These are as follows :
Colonel—John W. Johnston, Westmoreland
county; Lieutenant colonel—Richard Mt.lll
- fillet, Reading ; Ma jor — Charles N. Watts,
Carlisle; Adjutant—Joseph A. &Lean, Read
ing; Quartermaster—William 111. Seiler, Har
i isburg ; Surgeon—R. S. Livingston, Danville ;
Assistant Surgeon—WashingtonNugent ;
M. M . Carter, Lebanon. The beautiful
National Flag presented to this regiment in
Nlartinsburg, for " manly conduct and gentle
manly and soldierly-like bearing," was, by
nuanimous consent of officers and men, given
to the faithful, able and eloquent Chaplain, as
a testimonial of their regard. The sick wore
generally brought along to this city. A few
were left in charge of their captains at Carlisle,
being too unwell to move. Col. Johnston left
for home at three o'clock this morning, and
other members of the staff during the forenoon.
The fifteenth regiment will be paid off to
morrow and reach here in the afternoon,
ANOTTTER HARBIBBIIRGER PROMOTED. -Mr
Charles Snyder, of this city, a son of Charles A.
Sny,lor, Esq., has been appointed a second
Lieutenant in the regular army.
FILLING Up.—Some twenty-five or thirty
young men have already signed the roll of Capt.
J. Wesley Awl's new company, which is to be
attached to Colonel Good's Zouave regiment.—
The Captain is still slightly indisposed, but we
hope to see him on duty again in a short time.
THE FUNERAL OF M. Boys]; to take place
to-morrow afternoon, will be attended .by the
Washington Hose Company and Washington
Library Association, to both of which the de
ceased belonged. We presume an 'invitation
has been extended to the fire department gen
erally to attend.
ANOTHER BIBLE AND BULLET' CANARD. A
southern exchange says :
William P. Mangum, son of the Ex-Senator
from North Carolina, had his life saved at the
battle of Bull's run by a bible in his pocket, the
gift of his sister.
As has been said before, this thing of the
preserving powers of bibles in battles is entirely
"played out." Let ns have some new story,
one that is not quite so thread-bare. Is it not
singular that no volume of poems, no excellent
novel, or other "profane" work, was ever yet
known to stop a bullet in battle ?
/Isom= COXPANY.-Our "gay and happy ,
friend, Isaac S. Waterbury, has been authorized
by the Secretary of War to raise a company for
the army, and isabout to open atoll for that pur
pose. Mr. Waterbury has as much military ex
perience as "any other man" who
_aspires to a
Captaincy, having served as a Lieutenant
through the Mexican war, and as Adjutant in
the late three months' campaign, with great
credit and acceptability. Young men who de
sire to go into service with an officer thoroughly
versed in the science of war, and proverbial for
his kind and humane treatment of those under
his command, cannot do better than join Cap
tain Waterbury's company.
AN INDIONANT YOUNa LADY. Last evening
Miss Catharine Hamlin went into a dry goods
store to purchase a few yards of muslin. After
paying for it, she thought she bad given too
much, and suggested the idea to the clerk, who
was not aware of the mistake. But his denial
only confirmed Mias Catherine's impression,and
she forthwith proceeded to kick up a row in the
store, and closed the entertainment by throw
ing the bundle at the clerk's head. After some
difficulty the indignant and belligereut young
lady was forcibly ejected from the store.
She went before an Alderman and prefered a
charge of assault and battery against the clerk,
but after an investigation of the case the com
plaint was dismissed.
THIEVES AND PICKPOCKETS.—For two or three
weeks past, the light fingered fraternity have
operated with astonishing boldness and success
in this city. Scores of soldiers have been robbed,
and the pockets of travelers and citizens reliev
ed of large sums of money. Suspicion attaches
to two or three "fancy" individuals hereabouts
who have no ostensible means of livelihood, and
yet live fast, sport any amount of jewelry, dross
fashionably and extravagantly, and "splurge"
extenaivoiy. The parties alluded to have long
been spotted for thieves, and might have been
detected months ago, if our police officers had
exercised ordinary vigilance and tact. If com
mon rumor be true, there exists in the very
heart of our populous city an institution—the
locality and character of which are well known
to certain constables—into which soldiers and
other strangers are nightly inveigled, drugged
with liquid poison, and robbed of their
money. When officers are known to visit such
an institution and be on familiar terms with its
keepers and "stool-pigeons," people have a
right to suspect that there is something rotten
in the constabulary department. And when a
man goes into an obscurely located grog shop,
takes one drink, becomes oblivous for an hour
or two from its effects, and awakes to find his
money gone, the presumption is that he was in
a den of thieves. When facts of this kind are
developed people will comment upon them, and
form their own conclusions with regard to the
character of the men who keep and frequent
Molts VIRGINIA REFUGRES.—Last evening a
man named J. W. Shinefield, with a wife and
four children, arrived here from Kanawha val
ley, Virginia, which region he left to avoid
being impressed into the rebel army. He left
all his property behind, and fled with his fami
ly, traveling by night through the woods and
by-ways of the rebel district, and enduring
many hardships, until he reached western Vir
ginia, whence he was forwarded to Cincinnati
and took the cars fur this city, en route for
Chambersburg, where his father resides. Mr.
Shinefield confirms all the statements made in
an article on our first page with regard to the
infamous outrages committed by Wise and his
secession rabble in the Kanawha valley, the
confiscation of property of Union men, burning
of buildings and bridges, robbery and murder,
and other barbarities. Mr. Shinefield is a gen
teel looking and intelligent man, and no one
who h rd his story doubted its truth.
On arriving in this city, he made application
to several taverns for lodging for himself and
family, and in every instance was refused accommo
dations ! Some of these hard-hearted and mer
cenary publicans were solicited by citizens to
give the weary family shelter for the night, but
peremptorily and persistently refused. The
man, his wife, and children, were respectably
clad, and looked as genteel as the generality of
I travelers, and we are at a loss to account for the
inhuman conduct of our tavern-keepers in re
fusing to take the strangers in. The license of
every one of them should be revoked. The
weary travelers, however, finally found a good
Samaritan in officer Moses Fleck, who invited
them to his humble home, sheltered and fed
them. They left this morning for Chambers
burg, Mr. Shinefield having first pawned his
trunk and its contents to raise money for the
purchase of railroad tickets. The only material
aid he received here was one dollar voluntarily
contributed by Mr. John R. Boyd, keeper of the
prison. The man represented that his parents,
living in or near Chambersburg, are in good

MORE RECRUITS —A large company of re
cruits, to fill up regiments now encamped in
this vicinity, arrived here this afternoon. All

commanded by Colonel Simmons, of this city,
left at noon to-day, en route for the upper Po
tomac to join Gen. Banks' division. The men
were furnished with new muskets last evening.

Room/mons Prcerm—From present indica
tions the picnic to come off at Cold Spring to
morrow will be the largest and gayest of the
season. Old and young, married and single,
men and women, are making preparations to
participate in the excursion, and have a "good
time," for one day at least, away up among
the mountains, where the air is pure and In
vigorating and the water clear as crystal and
cold as ice. Should the weather be favorable
we expect to see an immense train leave the
depot tomorrow morning for the scene of fes
Fsmisno ZOUAVES rroa Acriva Ssavios.—The
Buffalo Omemercial is' credibly info;med that a
female Zouave company is organized, uniformed,
armed and equipped in that city, and have for
several weeks past been perfecting themselves
in military movements under the direction of
a competent officer. They have attained to
such perfection In drill that they contemplate
parading in public within a couple of weeks.—
It is said, also, that they are organized for no
simple holiday purpose, but intend volunteer
ing for field service, and if that is refused
them, they will offer themselves as hospital as
sistants and nurses. "Columbia" will have
some of her own sex to battle for her yet.
These feminine Zouaves are represented to
be "young and pretty." If so, in the event of
their acceptance it is to be feared that before
they remain long in the army they will need
nurses themselves !
Tna Dnrr OF rus SOLDIERS.—There are many
persons who would cheerfully aid in promoting
the health and comfort of the volunteers en
gaged in the service of the country without de
siring any other reward than the consciousness
of performing a praiseworthy and patriotic act,
if they knew how they could conveniently ren
der really useful service. Those who possess a
superabundance of fruits and vegetables will
see by the suggestion contained in the annexed
notice from Miss Dix, that articles to which
they attach little value may, by a little atten
tion, prove very useful. We trust her request
will be republished by all our loyal cotemporn
ries, and liberally responded to by the public :
" All persons having fruit orchards, or vege
table gardens, are respectfully requested, as
means and convenience allow, to cause dried
fruits and vegetables to be prepared and stored
for the benefit of the troops inautumn and win
ter—that a wholesome addition may be made
to the army rations, and health prlserved by
suitable diet. " D L. Dix.

How Tun "Gamow MECHANICS OF man Nowra"
youow xnara TRAMOL—The regiments of the
army of freedom, it is well known, contain
practical mechanics of every branoh of trade,
as well as artists, merchants, clerks, and men
from every walk of business ; so that when a
commander wants a bridge built, a locomotive
repaired, or a pair of boots mended, he finds a
ready response to his order of "Carpenters step
to the front ! " "Machinists, two paces forward,
march 1 " "Shoemakers, to the front and cen
tre, march ! " In any army composed of such
material, the branch of trade from which such
companies have been drawn will be indicated to
the shrewd observer by their style of expres
sion toward the enemy. For instance :
Printers—lno& him into "pi!" Smash his
"form 1" " T him him well! At him with a
Clapenters—At him " full chisel 1" Shave
Tailors—Sew him up ! Give him a good
