HOW To FINISH THE AlOll - Wollll. A Mr. El

stroy the army worm, WWI we submit for the
benefit of our readers : Seeing their approach
he took a plough and made a furrow each side
of the fence, in Mild) lie dog holes about ten
feet apart, and when they eame to this en

lengthwise they would fall into these holes,
and were thins destroyed.
RAILROAD ACcmrST. — On Tuesday night, as
one of the freight trains on the Northern Cen
tral railroad was running between Glenrock
and Ihmorer Junction, James McCubhin, a
brakeman on the train, attempted to hang out
a lantern at the rear of the train. While he
was thus engaged the train approached a bridge,
and lie mu struck end knocked from the train.
He WAS badly cut about the face And head, but
his injuries are fortunately not of a serious
haracter. Ile was taken to Baltimore, where
he resides.
l' l4rlh regiment of Wisconsin three month's
volun arrived here in two extra trains
from Baltimore on their return from the scat of
war. Their time of enlistment expired several
weeks ago, but they unanimously agreed to re
main longer at the request of their Colonel.
They were with General Patterson's diitision
hrring the campaign in the Winchester valley,
awl were last stationed along the : line of the
cliosapeake and Ohio Canal guarding the dams
and locks, which were threatened with destruc
tion by the secessionists. They left Point of
Rocks on Monday last,, their p a lace being filled
by the First Maryland regiment, Colonel R

they having lost in killed, wounded and sick

The principal officers are as follows :—Col.
Starkwether, Lieut. Col, laarriti, llijor . Pur64ll
and Adjutant Poole. They will return to Mil
wankie, where they will be reorganized and re
cruited for the war.
FLlEL—Without a doubt every one must have
noticed the extraordinary number of flies with
which we are afflicted this summer. They have
taken possession of the hotels, stores, offices
and private houses, and act as independently and
impudently as if thq were a company of rebel
cavalry. Talk about sleeping in the afternoon!
The thing is an utter impossibility. Just as
you are falling into a gentle doze, you hear one
coming straight tow irds you, from the other
side of the room—there he comes -Z 7. —and
thou you strike a regular Heenan stroke and
are wide awake in three seconds, with, perhaps,
no very pious thoughts on your mind. Being
driven back in the first encounter, he deploys
and makes an attack on the other side, as soon
as he sees your eye-lids close—then comes an
other wile-awake spell—and so on for half an
hour, until you become nervous and excited,
and wisely conclude that there is no slumber
for your eyelids that afternoon. What a bles
sing the "varmints" can't see at night ! Titer
make it suit, however, to be about veil, early
in the morning, and, no doubt are thus very
beneficial to the health, being conclusive
early rising.
day afternoon a two horse wagon arrived in-our
city, containing a flintily , who had be e n com
pelled to fly from Virginia by the peiseentions
of the Secessionists The man, who gave his
name as George Williamson k a native of
Pennsylvania, but has fot a number of years
been residing in Virginia, eight miles above
cumberland, quite close to the Maryland line,
where he was comfortably situated, and was
doing well until the commencement of the pre
sent difficulties. A short time since, he was
waited upon by the rebels and asked to join
the army, which he refused to do, declaring his
attachment to the Union. At different times
the same nnuisino n was made which he still
continued to nisreganh until a few days ago, 1 ,
when he was nothicd that be must either join
the army or leave the state in ten hours, on
pain of death if he remained. On receiving this
notice he immediately began to m a k e ', re p ort .
tiong t o depart, but in about two hours a large
party of-the rebels came to his home and began
to search for him, declaring their intention to
kill him If they found him. He fortunately
eluded the search by hiding himself mill after
their departure, when leaving everything he
llion him which he possessed in the world, he
pm his family, consisting of his wife and three
children into his wagon, and escaped over the
Maryland line three days ago. He is now on
his way to Philadelphia, where his friends and
relatives reside.

Capt. Waterberry is a soldier, and he has proved

those who want to see service that will crown

train from New York city yesterday, via Reading,
brought with it a special car, containing no less
a personage UT - in Prince Napoleon, first cousin
of the Emperor of the French. His arrival
was unheralded, and but comparatively few of
our citizens were lucky enough to get a view
of the distinguished stranger.
The Prince Is a fine looking gentleman of 40
years or thereabouts, of medium height, and
mther inclined to stoutness. His face was clear
of any hirsute appendages, and its appearance
bore a striking resemblanbe to the first Napo
leon. He was plainly attired in a light colored
slouch hat, lightsack coat and light pantaloons.
Col's. Ferri, Pisani. Ragon, Capt. Dubinison
and Count de Medern of the French army and
navy accompanied the Prince on his travels.
The distinguished party left in the 1.30 train
for Altoona, where they will remain over night
and prcceed next morning to Pittsburg.
PAT rs Possunat.- 7 —We hear complaints abroad
of a disposition upon the part of those well able
to pay as they go, to avail themselves of the
plausible excuse of dull times to avoid the
prompt payment of little bills due to tradesmen,
mechanics and others. This is to be regretted.
Nothing so contributes to weaken confidence
and press business activity as to withdraw from
the retail trade of any business its just due, in
times like the present, and we hold that the
man who would urge the present troubles as an
excuse for not paying small bills, when he can
pay as well at one time as another, is guilty of
one of the worst of the moral wrongs attendant
upon business operation in a season of general
depression. Never hoard up money, when no
thing can be gained by it, more especially when
you have debts which are over due to parties
dependent upon their earnings to sustain them
selves and their families. Pay, if possible.
A BAD PRAolloo.—Thoughtless people, when
eating a peach, a watermelon, or a canteloup,
instead of throwing the peeling or rind into
the street, toss it upon the pavement. Unsus
pecting persons, passing along, accidentally
tread upon one of these rinds, and find them
selves immediately down upon the pavement,
with a head bruised by the fall, a leg broken,
or an ankle sprained. A man that would make
a hole in the pavement, into which passers
could unsuspectingly step and break a limb,
would be considered an inhuman sort of per
son, and he would be made to pay the penalty
•Iff , damages, for the injuriestietAtneed. Itut.tirs
injury is the same, whether it is done mali
ciously, by setting a trap, or thoughtlessly, by
individuals too mentally lazy to think always
correctly of the consequences of their acts. A
person has no right to imperil another's person
in the street, and no right-minded individual
would do it. A man or woman of sense would
throw the rind or paring of fruit into the street,
or, better still, into the slop-tub. If at any
time such a person were to see a peach-paring
or watermelon rind upon the pavement, he or
she would immediately toss it into the street
with the foot, so as to prevent some person less
observing from receiving injury. Whenever
we see this being done, we instinctively feel
respect rising iu our mind for the person, for
the act affords evidence that the individual has
good sense to perceive the impropriety of leav
ing anything upon the pavement which can do
mischief—a thoughtful consideration for the
safety of others, and real kindness of heart to
save from injury. The person who thought
lessly or recklessly throws fruit parings or
rinds upon the pavement has neither.
SLANG PHRAM.—This is certainly an inven
tive age, and the progression that Young Amer
ica is making in phraseology and manufactured
expressions, most emphatically demands a dic
tionary of their vocabulary, in -order that the
unsophisticated listener may comprehend their
peculiar language. For instance, if Young ,
America is embarrassed in pecuniary matters,
he has inarrred,' or 'ho can't raise the soap.'
Money is known to them by various names,
such as 'tin," 'shiners,' the ready,' the aurife
rous,' 'spondulics,' &c., and if he has a duty to
iterfonn, 'he can't do it too quick,' or 'too much.'
if .e seta into difficulty, he has a 'muss' or a
'bet to,' and he reproves angry vehemence by
suggesting to the enraged party that he
'needn't put himself into a cast iron perspira
tion." He has no particular residence but
'bangs out,' or 'stops.' In cases where common
people pay, Young America 'shells out,' ponies
up,' or 'forks over,' and if he asks for crtdit he
wants to 'run his face.' Young America never
becomes intoxicated, but frequently gets a 'brick
in his hat,' blind drunk,' or 'slightly set up.'
If be has any peculiarities that is 'his style,'
and his favorite ejaculation is 'bully! ' If
nielancholly he is 'oat of sorts,' or 'down in the
mouth,' got the blues,' and if his purse is
empty, he is 'strapped' or 'hard up.' If he
rides out be hex a 'two-forty nag,' and generally
holds the 'ribbons' at arms length. If you
contradict him, he protests that he wants 'none
or your lip,' consequently you must 'dry up,'
k.immer down,' ent it short,' or 'cork up and
These are but few of the modern expressions
in general use with young America. Altogether
they would swell a volume larger than Web
ster's unabridged.
And he who uses such phrases, whatever his
- ition in life, need not attempt to convince
lybody that he is a gentleman, or trustwor

der column,
Prunsvluania -jai itelegrapti, ..attOap Morning
A 'Flo . re is scarcely rin article of vege
taHe food chore widely useful. or more niiiver
sally loved than the apple. Why every farni
er in the nation has not an apple orchard,
wherever trees will grow at all, is one of the
mysteries. Let every family lay in from one
to ten or more barrels, and it will be to them
the most economical investment in the whole
range of culinaries. A raw mellow apple is
digested in an hour and a half, while boiled
cabbage requires five hours. The most health
ful dessert that can be placed on the table is a
bak, d apple. If taken freely at breakfast, witk
coarse bread and butter, without meat or flrsh
of any kind, it has an admirable effect upon
the general system ; often removing constipa
tion, correcting acidities, and cooling off febrile
conditions more effectually than the most ap
proved medicines. If families could be induced
to suestitute the apple, sound, ripe and luscious,
for the pies, cakes, candies and other sweet
meats with their children are too often indis
criminately stuffed, there would be a diminu
tion in the sum total of doctor's bills in a single
year sufficient to lay in a stock of this delicious
fruit for a whole season's use.
CHANGO OF WEATHER. —The cold mornings
and evenings remind us that the laws of nature
will inflict upon ns before long, cold weather,
'rand the same tare that says prepare for war

and suitable clothing for the winter. It is the
duty and privilege of every man woman and

terms, owing to the large stock of dry goods on
