AT TIIE LATE ELECTION in this county, in one
of the wards of this city, John W. Forney re
ceived several votes for County Treasurer. These
were polled by Breckinridge-Democrats, who
intended to show their resentment to John L.
Speel, the Democratic candidate for Treasury,
between whom and Col. Forney there has al
ways existed a warm feeling of friendship.
KILLED ON TIIE RALLIWAD.—The mangled body
of a man was discovered on the railroad a short
distance west of Carlisle, last Tuesday morning.
Coroner Smith held an, inquest, but failed to
obtain any evidence which would identify him.
He was no doubt attached to Col. Stumbaugh's
regiment which passed over the road the previ
ous evening, and it is supposed, fell from the
cars and was run over by the train. The re
mains were conveyed to the Poor House and
LN Towx.—Col. Joseph F. Knipe, of the 46th
Penna. Regiment, was in town this morning,
looking remarkably will. We have before con
tradicted the report, started in Baltimore, that
a murderous attempt had been made upon his
life. The Colonel's regiment is stationed on
the Potomac, and he represents matters and
things there as in the best possible condition.
He adds that the " boys " from this neighbor
hood are in good health and fine spirits,
anxiously awaiting an opportunity to blaze
away at the rebels. Col. Knipe brought with
him the official vote polled last Tuesday by the
Dauphin county soldiers of his regiment.
The FOUNTAIN HAIR. BRUSII.—In the opinion
of all who have seen this invention, it is the
most convenient toilet article ever introduced ;
either in this country or abroad, and must in
evitably supersede all other hair-brushes, when
ever an opportunity for comparison is afforded.
All scientific men who have examined it pro
nounce it a complete success. It is simple in
principle, perfect in operation, cannot by any
possibility get out of order, is compact, elegant,
durable, and will save twice its own price with
in three months, by economising preparations
for the hair. For sale at KELLER'S Drug and

ARREST OF A HORSE THIEF. —A negro, whose
name we could not learn, was arrested this
morning by officers Cole and Wickert, charged
with stealing a horse from Mr. John Wertz, a
farmer residing in Manor township, Lancaster
county. The negro, it seems, last Saturday
offered to dispose of the horse to a farmer re
siding near the State Lunatic Hospital, at a
price far below its real value, which excited the
suspicion of the farmer that it was stolen prop
erty, and in order to be assured of the fact, and
at the same time aid the ends of justice—for
farmers look upon a horse thief as the greatest
of all villians—he told the negro that he was
pleased with the looks of the animal, and would
perhaps buy him, if he could first try him for
a short time. The negro readily jumped at this
bait, dismounted from the animal, and left him
in charge of the fariner, promising to call
again some time this week, In the meantime
the farmer came to the city, and relating the
circumstances to some of our police at the
Mayor's office, he was shown a hand-bill des
cribing the horse stolen from Mr. Wertz, which
he immediately declared corresponded precisely
with the animal in his possession. The police
accordingly made the necessary arrangements,
and this morning when the negro called upon
the farmer for the money or the horse, he was
taken in custody, and brought to this city,
where he was lodged in prison, and at noon to
day left for Lancaster in charge of officer Cole.
A COMMENDABLE MOVE;MENT.—An organization
has been started in one of the towns in Bucks
county for the purpose of providing each sol
dier that enters the service of the United States
from that county with a water-proof blanket, a
supply of home-made socks, and other small
articles that may be found desirable or neces
sary for their comfort while absent from home.
Local enterprise of the same character are in
progress in several other towns, the intention
in each case being to provide for the volunteers
from these particular neighborhoods. This is
well so far as it goes, but if each community is
depended upon to provide for its own members
who have enlisted, it is very probable that a
considerable number of the men, from one cause
or another, will not be provided with blankets
at all. To guard against this result, it seems
desirable that some general plan, like the one
suggested should be extended throughout the
entire county. It would be easy to establish a
central committee in every county with agents
in every township and borough, to receive con
tributions from the loyal and liberal inhabi
tants, and to see that each article or sum of
money is applied to its proper utlo. Water
proof blankets for a whole regiment may be
procured for about one thousand dollars ; a sup
ply of woolen socks for all the men can be fur
nished at much less cost in money, but a trifle
more work. Let the men who stay at home
give the money to buy the blankets and the
yarn, and we will guarantee that the socks will
be forthcoming from the hands of our patriotic
women. We hope that the example of our
Bucks county friends may be followed in this
county. It is due to the honor of old Dauphin
county that her sons shall appear in the conflict
for liberty and law lacking in no comfort that
our money and labor can bestow. Let us all
work together, and this end can quickly be ac
attar CURTIN.—There are now about seventy
companies, and parts of companies, at Camp
THE Toys OF Bursars,—A soldier writing from
one of the camps on the Potomac thus alludes
to the peculiar music made by bullets passing
through the air :
It is a very good place to exercise the mind,
with the enemy's pickets rattling close at hand.
A. musical ear can study the different tones of
the bullets as they skim through the air. I
caught the pitch of a large sized minie yester
day—it was a swell from E flat to F, and as it
passed into the distance and lost its velocity,
receded to D—a very pretty change One of
the most startling sounds is that produced by
the Hotchkiss' shell. It comes like the shriek
of a demon, and the bravest old soldiers feel
like ducking when they hear it. It is no more
destructive than some other missiles, but there
is a great deal in mere sound to work upon
men's fears. The tremendous scream is caused
by a ragged edge of lead, which is left on the
shell. In favorable positions of light, the phe
nomena can sometimes be seen, as you stand
directly behind a gun, of the clinging of the air
to the ball. The ball seems to gather up the
atmosphere and carry it along, as the earth
carries its atmosphere through space. Men are
frequently killed by the wind of a cannon shot.
There is a law which causes the atmosphere to
cling to the earth, or which presses upon it with
a force, at the surface, of fifteen pounds to the
square inch ; does the same law, or a modifica
tion, pertain to cannon balls in flight? Ido
not remember of meeting with a discussion of
the subject in any published work. It is cer
tainly an interesting philosophic question.
A FEMALE STRANGER with some claims to per
sonal attractions, went to the Capital park yes
terday afternoon to have a walk, and enjoy the
cool fresh air. She didn't have any brother or
cousin to take with her, and felt lonely. A
good looking young man, sympathizing with
her lonely condition, addressed her, and soon
began to make himself very agreeable to the
susceptible lady. He pointed out to her as
they sat on one of the benches the most notable
localities of the Capital city, and at the same
time, by a sly glance, satisfied himself of the
locality of her reticule. He told her his name,
gave a short history of his life, and the lady felt
much interested in the young stranger ; in fact
she began to wonder if there was anything as
" love at first sight." In the mean time the
" nice young man's" tongue rattled on like a
first class cotton mill, and thrilled her young
heart with patriotic enthusiasm by his recitals
of the glories of war, and then with a glowing
eloquence he pictured the defeat of the rebels
by the invincible valor of our army, and to
make the matter more clear to the lady, he
started down one of the walks of the Park
towards State street at a 2.40 pace, saying "thus
will the rebels run." He didn't come back,
however, and the lady discovered that somehow
or other her reticule had gone with him. For
tunately, it contained nothing but a cambric
edged handkerthief, and the lady concluded
that altogether her loss was well worth the ex
perience she had gained.
FREIGHT ON THE PENNA. RAILROAD. —The
pressure of freight to the seabord is sn sum
mons at present that the Pennsylvania, Erie and
Central companies are compelled to refuse large
quantities even at advanced rates. The Cincin
nati Gazette draws this encouraging prospect for
the railroads the coming winter :
" The Mississippi river being closed, the pro
duce of the entire west is driven from that
channel to the eastern railroads. In addition
to this the Baltimore and Ohio railroad is closed,
and the Pennsylvania Central is largely occu
pied with Government business. Thus railroad
facilities, as compared with last winter, have
been reduced very nearly one-half, while busi
ness has largely increased; and if managers have
put prices up fifty per cent while canals and
lakes are navigable, without being able to move
all the property that is offered, what may be
expected when the water lines shall be closed ?
It is probable that freight on flour to New York
will advance to two dollars per bbl. by the first
of January, and on other articles in proportion.
Freights are lower now than they will be three
months hence, unless navigation of the Missis
sippi should be opened in the meantime by some
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company now
charges Si 10 freight on a barrel of flour from
Cincinnati to Philadelphia, being an advance of
10c. On wheat, the charge per 100 lbs has been
advanced from 47 to 55c. This might affect the
trade of Philadelphia as well as the business of
the company, only that rival railways are una
ble to increase their present freight business,
and the Pennsylvania railroad has more east
ward bound freight than it has capacity to ac
commodate at any rate or charge.
CAMP CROSSMAN.-A Suggestion to the Military
Authorities here.—The regiment of Col. Win. G.
Murray, formerly of this city, is stationed with
James' Brigade, at Camp Crossman, near Hun
tingdon, and the command of the camp itself is
under Col. Murray, who has established rules
and regulations for its government, which would
be well for the military authorities to adopt
here. One of his first acts, says the Globe, was
to establish a day and night patrol guard or
police in the borough, numbering thirty strong,
which is a decided benefit to both citizens and
soldiers. Ten are detailed for duty at a time—
three hours on and six hours off. Three or four
unruly, noisy, drunken fellows (not all soldiers)
have already been arrested and placed in con
finement, by the guard. They have pitched
their tents on Smith street, between Hill and
Washington, which, taken altogether, makes
the town considerably warlike. The guard is
under command of Lieut. Kocherberger, a gen
tleman and a soldier, who knows his duty, and
with nerve to enforce his authority ; and the
men under him are peaceable and gentlemanly
in their conduct.
The Globe adds that "a sentry can be seen
stationed at almost every corner, and his steady
tramp can be heard at the midnight hour, where
nought else breaks the stillness of the night.
And what a change it has brought about. Our
town seems like it was of old. Rowdyism and
drunkenness on our streets since the advent of
this new era, has considerably decreased, and
our peaceable and quietly disposed citizens can
retire at night without being disturbed in their
slumbers by midnight marauders, who make
night hideous by their unearthly yells and
screams, which would lead one to think that
all pandemonium had broke loose, and were
having one great grand jubilee, over their es-

TALL SIIOOTING.—TaIk about the Burden sharp
shooter's practice at Hoboken. Yesterday af
ternoon Dr. Robert Harris of this city—a "crack"
shot at all time s, by the way—hit a target the
size of a man's hat, six hundred yards distant,
three times in succession ! This feat was per
formed in the presence of about twenty reliable
gentlemen, all of whom are. ready to vouch for
its correctness. The rifle used on the occasion
is a new invention, considerably smaller than
Sharpes, and as witnessed by the above per
formance, of undoubted accuracy.
A BIT OF Remises—A Female enlists as a Vol
unteer at Camp Curtin.—Last Saturday even
ing an apparently youthful soldier stopped at
the Susquehanna Hotel, in Baltimore, to await
the departure of the Northern Central train
from that place to this city. He was not there
long, however, before it was whispered among
some of the knowing ones that the soldier was
a female, which fact was revealed by a fellow
passenger from Washington. Finding that he
was suspected, and fearing that he might be
subjected to great inconvenience from it, he
had just concluded to make known to the Mar
shal of Police that he was a female, when a po
liceman appeared, and taking him into custody,
conducted him to the Middle District Station
House, where the charge of being a woman was
preferred against him. This he indignantly re
pelled, and played the character of a young
man to such perfection that nearly every one
present at the examination went away satisfied
that the charge was unfounded. He was about
to be committed to jail to await a further ex
amination, when Mr. Vorshell, proprietor of
the Susquehanna hotel, appeared and offered to
keep him at his house all night. This was
agreed to, and an officer was sent to guard the
room in which he slept.
When he arose yesterday morning he donned
his uniform, but had, on the previous evening;
ackowledged to Mr. V., that he was a female.
A guard was kept over her until about noon
yesterday, when Mr. McPhail, Deputy Marshal,
allowed her to go about the house without a
guard, an officer merely remaining near at hand,
to be called whenever his services were needed.
At noon she dressed herself in female attire,
which was kindly furnished her by the lady
and daughter of Mr. Vorshell, and in a short
time she was moving about the house with as
much ease and grace as if she had known noth
ing of such a "rough" thing as a soldier's life.
About seven o'clock last night Mr. McPhail ap
peared at the hotel and removed her guard,
and thus the mattter rested last evening.
The subject of this investigation, is rather a
good-looking young lady, about nineteen years
of age, nc..r five feet in height, of good form,
with dark eyes and auburn hair. When first
suspected and arrested, she told several different
stories but finding it useless to conceal any
thing further, the following true statement of
her case is given :—ln April last, her husband
enlisted as a private in a three months' Penn
sylvania regiment. of which she gives the num
ber, now attached to Gen. Banks' column, with
out the knowledge or consent of his wife ;
finding his whereabouts, she also enlisted at
Harrisburg and was passed by the examining
surgeon in that place. She was attached to the
same regiment in which her husband was, and
as the Colonel of the rogiment was aware of her
sex, she was engaged in the capacity of messen
ger to that officer ; she was in the battle of Ma
nassas, and is considerable deafened in conse
quence. After the three months' service, she
was mustered out and re-enlisted for three
years, with her husband.
Her first enlistment wes on the 3d of May,
and consequently she has been inn service five
months, three weeks of which were spent in
Camp Curtin near this city. Her sex was known
to the following persons in the regiment :—the
Colonel, Lieutenant Colonel, Surgeon and Assis
tant Surgeon, and her husband. The day fol
lowing her arrest she was taken down to Fort
McHenry and confronted with Gen. Dix. She
stated that her name was Hattie Martin, but
she enlisted under the name of Robinson, which
was her maiden name. At the recruiting office
in Harrisburg she made known her sex to the
examining surgeon, and at her earnest solicita
ton he accepted her as a recruit. She is but
nineteen years old, and had been married but a
short time when she enlisted. Since her sojourn
on the Potomac she alleges that her husband
grew unkind towards her, which determined her
to return to Pennsylvania. After her interview
with Gen. Dix she was returned to the Susque
hanna House, the ladies of which have been
very kind to her, and the deputy provost
marshal liberated her from custody. The only
difficulty she had while playing the soldier
overtook her in Baltimore, she having carefully
concealed her sex, except to a few of the regi
mental officers, who, she states, treated her with
marked respect and kindness.
