GONE TO THE SEAT OE WAR VC Companies of
cavalry left Camp Curtin last night for the
Beat of VOX
PASSED THROUGH.—The regimental band of
the Nineteenth Indiana volunteers passed
through here this morning to join their regi
ment ill Washington city.
RECRUITS for Col. Good's Zuave regiment con
tinue to report themselves daily at the head
quarters in this city. The regiment is expected
to be tilled in about two weeks.
RELEASED.—George M. Brisban, who has been
in pris u here for the past two weeks, was this
morning released on his taking an oath before
Alderman Pener not to aid the rebellion in any
manner. The order for his release was issued by
MAJoR Lawis, of Campbell's Artillery Regi
ment has arrived in town, and will shortly open
a Recruiting office for his Regiment. It is the
intention to increase the number of men to 130
for each company. The Major can be found at
the Brady House until further notice is given.
NOETHERN CKNTRA L RAILROAD.—We learn that
the earnings of this road for the month of June
amounted to $lOB,OOO, and for July $170,000,
Including the stuns received for the transporta
tion of troops, government stores, etc. The net
earnings of the road from the Ist of January to
the let of August were upwat ds of $300,000.

Loox per son Tasesos.—The loyal people
throughdut the cturnslittild set 0) it t kat no
treason is preached in their respective tielghbor
hoods. This is no time for treating delicately
those who plot treason. Wherever traitors
nimble to pour their leperous distillment into
the ears of the people, care should be taken to
administer an antidote, or if necessary to pre
vent the poison being administered.
Lis KSPNER FIANCIBLES. —The Twelfth Re
serve, to which the Kepner Fencibles of this
pity are attached, are now comfortably quartered
on the Maryland Heights. All tho boys are
well and In good spirits. Of course no conject
ure as to the probability of a collision with the
rebel forces can be formed, but the "Fencibles"
are in the presence of the foe, and we feel as
aired will conduct themselves with becoming
courage should they be called upon for attack
CAvr. I. W. WArzanuax's independent com
pany of volunteers have been christened the
Robert's Guard, as a compliment to Dr. E. W.
Roberts, of this city. Several additional re
cruits for the company were sworn in by Alder
man Kline to-day, and there is every reason to
believe that the required complement of men
will be filled next week. The company will
pitch tents and go Into camp next Monday. We
recognize the names of quite a number of the
Cameron and State Capitol Guards in the roll
of the new company.
AMOSltjellB.—The time to take on health
and vigor is during the next two months, when
the nights and mornings are cool and the pic
colos of mosquitos are settled for the season.
Weather like yesterday renders country trips
superfluous, and makes the city quite as enjoy
able. Now is the time for invalids to take
gentle exercise. An early morning walk on
such a morning as yesterday, in a bracing air,
imparts a keener appetite than a pint of wine
bitters or a kennel full of bark. As shoe
leather is cheaper than pills or syrups, let
everybody take notice and act accordingly.
The people, before whose doors we never see a
doctor's sulky, are the people who breathe the
open air and indulge in healthful exercise.
CAMPS of INSTRUCTION.—The War Department
has recently issued an order for the establish
ment of military camps of instruction at New
York, Elmira, Cincinnati and Harrisburg, where
volunteers may be mustered into service iu any
number which may be offered, doing away with
the necessity to which Captains are now sub
ected of being forced to await the entire corn
'lotion of companies before they are able to
place their men into camp.
This is a reform which has long been needed,
and the evil which it is intended to remedy,
has done more to keep back enlistments than
citber Inconvenience the service has had to
FARMERS AND GRAZIERS,
Olie of you who have not given our HORSE

Thousands can testify to the profit they have
derived horn the use of our Cattle Powders by
the increasing quantity and quality of milk,

Our long ex perience in the business gives us
the advantage of a thorough knowledge of the
trade, and our arrangements in the shies are
each that we car In a very abort time furnish
anything appertaining to our business, on the
beet of term.
Thankful for the liberel patronage bestowed
on our house, we hope by strict attention to
business, a careful selection of

Pic- ic.—The Eintracht Singing Association
will give their first pic-nic of the season in
Haehenlin's woods on Monday, the 19th inst.
A " gay and happy" time may be expected.
Tice Moran :tor lifstwo of the teachers of the
several colored Sabbath schools will be held to
morrow afternoon, at 3 o'clock, in the Presby
terian Church in Walnut street.
THE booms Tex.—lt may not have been ge
nerally noticed that the act levying taxes upon
incomes goes into effect OR the first of January
next ; not on the first of April, 1862, as the
original draft of the bill provided. Moreover,
the tax is payable on incomes received daring
the present year. The forty-ninth section of
the act contains this clause : The tax herein
provided shall be assessed upon the annual in
come of the persons hereinafter named for the
y ear preceding the time for assessing said tax,
to wit : the year next preceding the first of
January, eighteen hundred and sixty-two." All
persons, therefore, who are in receipt of incomes
exceeding eight hundred dollars a year must
pay their tax at the rate
,of three per cent. for
the whole of the present yrar.
GOOD Sraitcnos. —We understand that Capt.
Hastings, of the regular A. S. army, who has
been for some time stationed here as mustering
officer, has been unanimously elected Colonel
of the first Pennsylvania cavelry regiment.
Capt. Hastings was born in Ireland, and entered
the army in early youth. He served through
the Florida war, and was commissioned for gal
lantry in the Mexican war, where he was twice
wounded. In this latter war he served in the
Engineer company under Lieut. G. B. McClellan,
now Major General in the U. S. army. Since
then he has been serving, until recently, in New
Mexico and Arizona, where he has frequently been
in hostile conflict with the wiley and treacherous
Indians. We have no doubt that through his in
strumentality the regiment now under his com
mand will in point of discipline and effective
ness soon equal any in the regular service.
WATER DRlNRlNG.—lmproper drinking of
water has killed thousands. There have been
instances where thirsty armies, after long
marches, have come to some river, when the
men would lie down on their faces and quaff an
excessive quantity of water, with these results :
some died almost instantly, others became
crazy, and staggered like drunken men. Avoid
drinking water as much as possible while
marching. When you feel dry, rinse the mouth
with water but do not swallow it. Drink only
when resting, or before the word is given to
march. Men, when heated, should not drink
anything cold. In a high state of perspiration
ice water only aggravates thirst. Drink slowly.
Half a tumbler of water will suffice the thirstiest
man in the world, if he drinks by sips. Take
from twenty-five to one hundred sips, and
swallow each time—it will quench the thirst
better than a quart drank in the usual manner.
In fact it is almost impossible to get down a
full glass of water, taken in this manner.
DAMAO' TO THE PENNA. CANAL.—The recent
heavy rains have done considerable damage to
the Romfam THvinims or el.nal The
aqueduct over the canal at the mouth of
Chiques Creek was washed away, together with
Haldeman's private bridge. This serious dam
age to the canal has laid up the boats along the
ditch—those in the nearest levels high and dry.
—The Columbia Spy of to-day, says: "We no
tice some half dozen above the canal basin in
this predicament, and one or two at the coal
wharves below. Below the outlet-lock, how
ever, the fleet of water craft, westward bound,
has gathered in strength. Here there is water
to float them, and they are jammed from the
lock, which is occupied by one fellow resolved
to get the earliest start, to a distance below the
Columbia bridge, and they lie in the • river on
the outside of the tow-path, above the bridge,
seven and eight abreast, to nearly opposite the
lock. On Friday morning we counted nearly
sixty, and the blockading fleet' has doubtless
been since strengthened by boats from the Tide

CHANOI OP WIZATIM.—The cold mornings
and evenings remind us that the laws of nature
will inflict upon us before long, cold weather,
"and the same face that says prepare for war
in time of items," will apply to preparing good
and suitable clothing for the winter. It is the
duty and privilege of every man woman and
child to buy their goods on the most favorable
