titioch:lNG RAILROAD ACCIDENT.—A shocking
t ident. occurred near Newport, on the Penn
lrania Railroad the other night. It appears
ti ~it a man, evidently a soldier, got on the
keeper of one of the cars of the stock train, and
taLing off in some way, an approaching train
011 the other track ran over him, killing him
iastintly. His body lay upon the track for
~aue time, when another train came along, and
lassing over it literally cut it in two. The re
mains of the unfortunate man were subsequent
ly boxed up and taken to Newport, where an
ilaptest was held and a verdict of accidental
Icatli rendered.
Anviarrisixo RULE.— Barnum, who has ex
i•ende,l as much money for newspaper advertis
ing as any other man, and reaped as much pro
fit dein that source, lays it down as a rule, in
his vklebno«l hook on "The Art of Making
Mency," lhat "the proper time to advertise ju
diciously is f , hort otk rs dmPt. ' Barnum is mani
(esti) right on that point, and we commend his
tuft tome. latAriess men generally, who just
now ,cent to think they can dispense with ad
vertising. In these dull times, whatever trade
dew is going, will surely fall into the hands of
these who let the people know that they are
alive. If you have anything to sell, advertise
and acquaint the whole world with the fact.
On the subject of continuous advertising, a
French editor has remarked, that the first time
a man sees an advertisannet in his newspaper
he takes no notice of it ; the second time he
looks at Ihe name; the third time he looks at
the price ; the fourth time he reads it ; the
fifth time he sp,aks of it to his wife ; the sixth
time lie buys.
THE AN [MASON ZOCAV ES.—Mis splendid regi
ownt from New York city arrived here last

army of the Union, and to defend that flag of
America, which has been ruthlessly assailed by

They are commanded by Col. J. Lafayette Ri
ker, a gentleman of experience in military
rs, and a better other could not be selected
fur a military force.

armed with the Springfield musket, carrying by
1 1 1

In his charge to the grand jury on the opening
of the Lebanon county Court this week, Judge
Pearson, speaking on our present national con
flict, and the laws relating to the duties of the
citizens concerning the same, instructed them
in substance as follows :
You are well aware, gentlemen, that the gov
ernment of the country is now engaged in a
great struggle with rebellion. A very consid
erable portion of the States of this Union have
risen against the laws, endeavored to throw off
their allegiance, and are now in open arms,
with a view of subverting and destroying the
Constitution and government of the United
States. This is no mere party contest, such as
has frequently agitated our country, to be ulti
mately settled at the ballot box, but a great
struggle for national existence, to be determin
ed by force of arms alone. It is scarcely neces
sary for me to remind a true and loyal people,
like those of Lebanon county, of their duty as
citizens in such a contest, and to say that they
are bound by their allegiance and interest not
only to do no act and utter no word or senti
ment calculated to embarrass the government
in its action, but to render all the assistance in
their power to aid it in carrying on the war, so
unjustly forced upon it. To levy war against
the United States or adhere to the enemy in
time of war, giving them aid and comfort, is
high treason, but this crime can be tried only
in the Federal courts.. Treason may also be
committed against the State of Pennsylvania by
the same acts or any endeavor to subvert and
overturn the government? and over that of
fence you and we have jurisdiction. But thb
law to which I particularly wish to direct your
attention as having a more practical bearing on
the action of the people in the present exigency,
was passed at the last session of the Legislature,
and should be known and understood by all,
lest any might transgress unwittingly. The act
punishes with great severity the aiding or abet
ting the enemy now at war with the United
States, by joining their armies, or procuring
any one so to do, or furnishing them any arti
cle for their aid and comfort, carrying on a cor
respondence with them, or giving them any in
telligence whatever. It also prohibits under
like penalty, every endeavor to dissuade per
sons from entering the service of this State or
of the United States or from joining any volun
teer company or association, about being mus
tered into service ; or being mustered into ser
vice, to induce or endeavor to persuade them
to abandon or withdraw from the same.
Every resident of Pennsylvania, who is pro
tected by its laws, must abstain from uttering,
writing or printing anything with the view and
purpose, or which may have the effect of pre
venting others from entering the armies of the
State or nation, or may blame others already
entered to desert their colors and abandon the
service. We all most highly prize the liberty
of speech and freedom of the press, yet at a
time like this, when great calamities may be
impending over the nation, the rules of morali
ty, our allegiance and duty alike require that
we shall abstain from doing any act or uttering
any word or sentiment calculated to show that
our councils are divided, whereby the hand of
the enemy is strengthened and that of the gov
ernment weakened. and such act is well calcu
lated to give aid and comfort to the enemy ;
and writing, printing or advised speaking be
fore the people against the action of the na
tional government, directly tends to induce
those in the service to leave it, and those about
to enter to change their intentions. Persons
violating these plain duties may readily bring
themselves within the penalty of the law ; anti
if the Grand Jury, or any one of them, know
of this statute having been transgressed, it is
your bounden duty to present the trangressors,
so that they may receive punishment accord
ing to their demerits.
The Grand Jury, before its adjournment,
adopted the following commendatory resolu
Resolved, That the Grand Jury unanimously
do approve of the suggestions and instructions
contained in the charge of Judge Pearson on
the subject of the duty and loyalty which the
people owe to the instituted authorities of the
State and the nation, and that we commend it,
in its length and breadth, to our fellow citizens
for their instruction and obedience.
Resolved, That we thank Judge Pearson for so
promptly and efficiently discharging his whole
duty in the premises, and we earnestly invoke
the cooperation of all our people, and civil
authorities, in sustaining the cause of law and
order, and by so doing maintain the integrity
of the Republic, and the honor of the national
FOLIOS—BEFORE ME Msvou.--,Tom. Noland
again paid his respects to his honor the Mayor.
Tom has grown grey in the service of Captain
Whisky, and seems to have enlisted for life.
In consideration of his age, and a faithful
promise to leave the city, he was discharged.
A stout, burley looking "bould soger boy"
went ing the uniform of the New York Anderson
Zouave regiment, was arraigned charged with
being drunk and disorderly. He had accident
ly been left behind by his regiment which pass
ed through here last evening, and concluded
to put in time by putting in whisky. He evi
dently didn't like the accommodations of the
"lock-up," and impudently remarked that if
he had known where he was going to, the of
ficers wouldn't have put him in. "They
couldn't put him in again, no sires." A word
from the Mayor and the Zouave was conducted
back to the lock-up as cool and calm as a Jersey
cucumber. He will be held until he can be
sent to join his regiment.
Wm. Brown, a stranger, hailing from Carlisle,
was up for drunkenness. Discharged on a
promise to leave the city.
Henry Davis, another "drunk," fined one
dollar and costs, and discharged.
Jno. Freezeler, a vagrant of twenty years or
thereabouts, looking for all the world as if he
was ready to fall to pieces, received marching
orders to leave the city.
Tea Tamarrms from the intense heat of last
week, to the Autumn-like coolness of the last
few days, has been too sudden to be agreeable
or healthful. A week ago and we were swelt
ering and panting beneath the penetrating rays
of an August sun which, with a cloudless sky
above, a parched earth beneath, and a heated
atmosphere around, combined to render it even
more insupportable. Now there is a striking
contrast, the steady, penetrating, reviving, and
grateful rains which fell during the early part
of last week, have cooled the atmosphere, re
vived the drooping vegetation, and animated
the heart of the husbandman with fresh hopes
fo r the welfare of the growing corn crop. The
atmosphere begins to assume the peculiar hazi
ness indicative of approaching Autumn, and the
evenings a certain degree of chilliness rendering
coal fires and winter clothing by no means un

is over and the crisis of war is at hand. Now
is the time to enlist. Government at this mo
ment stands in greater need of troops than at
any time heretofore. Those who intend to go to
war should not stand upon the order of going,
but go at once.
Bur, Gams, a negro desperado, well known
to the magistrates of our city, was arrested at
the depot at noon today by officers Wickert
and Cole, and conducted to prison. The officers
have been on the look-out for Bill for a long
time, but somehow or other he always manag
ed to evade their vigilence. To day, however,
they received reliable information that he had
been ruralizing somewhere near llighspire, and
that he would return to the city in the noon
train of cars from the east. The officers were
promptly on lipid at the depot, and when the
train arrived Bill was arrested. He is charged
with various crimes.
Tn CANAIS. —We have information from
bead quarters that the acquaduct of the Penn
sylvania canal over Chiques creek, near Colum
bia, which was damaged by the late flood, has
been repaired, and navigation on the canal re
sumed. The business has been quite brisk this
The breaches on the Juniata and Susquehan•
na canals have also been repaired, and naviga
tion resumed.
All the canals, therefore, east of the Alleghe
ny mountains, communicating with the coal
fields and lumber regions, which were injured
during the late floods are now open and in suc
cessful operation.
The western division of the Pennsylvania
canal is now in course of repair, and will short
