Tue REOULAR session of the court of quarter
sessions, o) er and terminer, and common pleas,
commences in this city next Monday. The trial
lists are unusually large, and many of the cases
are of an important character.
CAP MEETING.—A large number of
zensintend visiting the colored camp meeting
near Iligbspire tumorrow. The special trains
on the Pennsylvania Railroad will leave here
at 7.30 a. and 1.30 p. m. Returning, leave

'The artillery regiment recruited in this city by
Charlie Campbell, and recently sent to the Capi

manned and equipped, is reported by the Chief
of Ordnance in Washington, to be one of the
most efficient auxiliaries yet sent to to the field.

In Spring township, Centre county, was brutal
ly murdered on the Nittany mountain, Centre
co., last week, The alleged murderers are Ed
ward Lipton anal Wm. R. Hays, both of Miles
burg, who have been arrested and held to an
swer. All the parties are respectably connected.
As AIMING set-to occurred yesterday in the
White Ball hotel, between two well known
habitutes of that establishment. The bystanders
christened the combatants Beauregard and Jeff.
Davis, and it is said they done some excellent
shoulder-hitting. The " round" lasted several
minutes, when it was drawn, and the parties
adjusted the difficulty at the bar.
Throworrout IN THE CITY.—The work of rais
ing recruits progresses smoothly, and though
the same enthusiasm is not manifested that was
displayed earlier in the work, still the recruit
ing officers are doing a fair business, and quite
a number of men are being enrolled. There is
plenty of material for soldiers yet in the city,
and we have no doubt whatever but that two
of the regiments now in process of organization
here, may be filled with proper exertion on the
part of their officers.
Sous Paws ought to take the hand-organ
men under their supervision. If these peripa
tie murder, of music are not,' nuisances" we
should like to know what is. Besides, the fel
lows are dangerous to public health—their hor
rible grinding tending directly to produce irri
tation of the nerves, and febrile symptoms in
some organizations. It would be a good idea
to organize them into a company, and place
them as an advance guard in the next big bat
tle. A hundred or so of their infernal machines,
all grinding out different tunes, would infalli
bly put to flight a legion of rebels.
Potunt—Before the Mayor.—Patrick Mullen, a
very rubicond looking individual, was arraigned
for drunkeness. Patrick was a picture for a
temperance society; he had sowed the seeds of
dissipation uutil they came up in a magnificent
crop of grog blossoms all over his countenance,
and his nose shone like a crimson port-fire, a
beacon to warn his fellow man of the dangers
that beset those who navigate in strong waters.
Patrick was remanded for a further hearing.
John Lee, a mahogany-hued negro, who is
said to have a strong penchant for picking up
trifles lying around loose, was arraigned for
the larceny of a silver watch from Mr. John
Midlem. Sent across the way to answer.
An ImPOßoa.—There is no doubt but at the
present time, many a worthy person is going
about the city asking alms, but it is also known
that they are many that are not worthy of alms
being bestowed upon them. A man has re
cently visited several of our prominent citizens
soliciting money for the purpose, as he stated,
of collecting a sufficient amount to bury his
brother, who was accidentally tilled on the rail
road. He related his story in such a pitiful
manner, that his story was believed, and a con
siderable amount of money given to him. To
more easily victimize the unwary, he obtained
the name of an acquaintance, and calling upon
them, say that he had been sent there by hi e
friend. Day before yesterday, a gentleman who
had assisted him, was surprised to see hire quietly
seated in a saloon, eating switzer cheese
and drinking lager beer. Upon inquiry, it was
ascertained that the brother represented to have
been accidentally killed was still living, and in
the enjoyment of good health. The rascal had
adopted this ruse to get money to enjoy a big

generally known that acceptances of regiments
and companies by the Secretary of War, as well
as the authority given to colonels and captains
to raise such within thirty days, are given with
the distinct understanding that the right is reserv
ed to revoke the commissions of all officers
found to be incompetent.
Faurr MOVES. —Fruit thieves and garden
rangers should remember that by an act passe d
by the last Legislature, they are subject to a
fine not exceeding $5O, and imprisonment in
the county jail not exceeding sixty days. Some
of the loafing rascals who have been in the hab
it of stripping fruit trees, grape vines, &c., will
now pay dearly for their indulgence, when
Isransenso ro DEssarzes.—Hereafter all de
serters from the army are to be arrestei by the
police or citizens, taken to Governor's Island,
and tried by court martial. In case a citizen
captures a deserter, he will receive the sum of
thirty dollars, which will be deducted from the
pay of the soldier. Every soldier who loses his
gun, whether in cowardly throwing it away on
the field of battle, or through neglect, is to
have $l2, the price of the gun, deducted from
his pay. This will show the men that guns are
nut toys, to be thrown away whenever it is in
convenient to carry them.
ST. BARTHOLOWEVS DAT. —To-day is known in
church circles as St. Bartholomew's day, and is
observed by the Church of England as a great
holiday. St. Bartholomew was an Apostle, but
there is no scriptural account of his labors or
death. The legend of the Romish Church repre
sent him as preaching in the Indies, and con
cluding his life by being flayed alive by order of
a brother of the King of Armenia. In memory
of his death, it was customary at our monastic
institutions, in the middle ages, to distribute
small knives amongst the people. The day was
a horrrible celebrity in connection with the mas
sacre of the Protestants at Paris in 1572.
How To litsrmoursir MB RANK or Cartons.
By observing the shoulder straps worn by offi
cers of the army their rank can be readily ewer
tabled. A Major General is distinguished by
two silver stars on his shoulder straps; a Briga
dier General has but one star ; a Colonel has a
silver embroidered spread eagle ; a Lieutenant
Colonel has a silver embroidered leaf; a Captain
is known by two embroidered bars ; a First
Lieutenant has but one gold bar on the strap; a
Second Lieutenant none at all. The cloth of
the straps is as fc:ll3ws : Staff officers dark blue;
artillery scarlet ; infantry light (or sky) blue ;
riflemen medium (or emerald) green ; cavalry

homes Geom.—The time to take on health
and vigor is during the next two months, when
the nights and mornings are cool, and the bills
of mosquitos are settled . for the season. Weath
er like yesterday renders country trips superflu
ous, and make the city quite as enjoyable.
Now is the time for invalids to take gentle ex
ercise. An early morning walk on such a morn
ing as yesterday, in a bracing air, imparts a
keener appetite than a pint of wine bitters or a
kennell full of bark. As shoe-leather is cheap
er than pills or syrups, let everybody take notice
and act acebrdingly. 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.
London Standard reports in full the proceedings
of a meeting lately convened in that city by a
Duchess, at the desire of Queen Victoria, to
which only the creme de la creme of fashionable
female society were admitted, for the purpose of
presenting a proposition to her Majesty to aban
don hoops on the ground of their danger and the
number of deaths which they had caused. Of
course the idea was generally received with con
sternation. Some very aristocratic ladies could
remember no person of rank who had suffered
from wearing them, and couldn't'ee why they
should relinquish hoops because common people,
to whom they were an inconvenience, presumed
to copy their modes. A vigorous discussion
ensued, and a proposition was finally carried,
which declared for the abolition of all steel hoops
and springs in skirts. What is to be offered as
a substitute is not yet known.
WHAT 18 to become of love-making ? Does
anybody make love in these times? Are these
heavenly evenings to be thrown away in bitter
or fierce discussions about the war? Must the
god-Cupid put on a bob-tailed coat and shoulder
a musket? Are we to resign our pleasant chats
under delightful trees with "one fair daughter
and no more?" May we not again sit in the
shadow of the moonlight, and whisper never
to-be-forgotten words? May we not walk and
dream, and muse again, as of yore? Must all
the sweet sounds of love, as they float on the
air, be quenched rudely by "right shoulder,
shift arms," "right Sank by right face," "four
files into line, march?" Shall not her dear
head rest upon onr shoulder ? Shall not her
little hand repose in ours ? Must all our
thoughts be given up to "rations," and uni
forms and battles
Lovers, where are you
There are sad faces in the street to-night, and
to-night means every night. Darling girls in
couples are walking up and down through the
quiet streets, striving to look happy and cheer
ful, but ready to gush with grief at a moment's
notice. What shall be done for them?
He was not handsome, that bold soldier boy,
who went on with the l9oth regiment. Indeed,
he was a very ordinary looking person. What
a large nose he had—how awkward in his gen
eral appearance and manners. She was fre
quently ashamed of him. He was weak, too,
sold timid, and bashful, and nobody ever
thought he would come to much. But he had
one good quality that made him dearer to her
than all the world besides. He loved as a lover
, should love, faithufily, sincerely, eternally.
Hy love may not be worth much," he used to
say to her, "but its all I have in the world, and
I give it to you whether you value it or not."
This he would say to her as he was bidding her
good-night, with a sigh. Well, he is gone now,
and she hugs and kisses his photograph ugly as
it is.

Aaarver, OF Nsw YORK Taoors.—The Second
Fire Zouaves of New York oity, arrived here
this morning en route for Washington. The
regiment numbers seven hundred and odd men,
all of whom are wiry, hard knit fellows. Their
uniforms are very picturesque, and on the whole
they pussess a good front. They are pretty
much all tried firemen, and therefore ought to
be better able to stand "fire." The regiment
forms a part' of Sickle's "Excelsior Brigade."
