Is TOWN.—Messrs. Phelan and Cavanaugh—
the great billiard players—were in town last
Saturday on a tour of observation. During
the day, they visited Poulton's Billiard Saloon,
where Cavanaugh astonished the "natives" by
scoring 81 points in little less than no time.
POLICE AT :um DEPOT.-Mr. Michael Newman,
air many years aconstAble of Harrisburg, and
latterly the policeman in attendance at the.
P e nnsylvania railroad depot, has been removed
from that post to make room for Ex-Chief Po
lice constable Radabaugh. The new arrange
ment went into operation this morning.
WE ARE making "dictionary" in the present
war, almost as fast as "history." Every day

but generally forcible. Such is one of our
Western exchanges' description of the motive
which induced another to write a certain as
tounding article. Tne motive, according to
the allegation, was "pure cussedness 4; We
have a fancy that the phrase is a good one for a
very large ingredient in human character.

TELE PRIZE CONUNDRUM.. —The offering of a
gold pencil to the author of the best original
national Conumdrum served to draw a crowded

Tue "Bmilasa."—The word •'Bummer" is a
late aequisition to our language. Neither Web
ster nor Worcester, in their respective lexicons,
have noticed the term. Nevertheless, it is .one
of much insignificance, and is comprehensive in
its meaning. It is very frequently used by po
lice reporters to denote a wretched, forsaken,
dissipated man. Whenever a man has become
lost to a sense of shame, destitute of the means
of living, is an object of derision to the thought_
less, and of pity to the comp tssionate, he is
styled a "Bummer." While the "Bummer"
may occasioually be found in 'the country vil
lage, he is peculiar indigenous to the city where
he and his confreres abound in great variety and
perfection. His haunts are the lowest and
localities, where his bestial appetites are
gratified, to excess and where the lowest depths
of degradation are reached in toe easiest possi
ble manner. Hundreds infest this city, and can
be daily seen creeping along the street pleading
for alms in the most importunate Manner, or
sneakingly on the lookout for some article
which they may steal without the probability of
arrest. The Bummer thrives best near the de
pots, and at the market on Wednesday and Sat
urday mornings. No description can adequate
ly convey a correct idea of tke Bummer. It is
necessary to visit his haunt to fully appreciate
him. ' Many of these poor creatures once occu
pied respectable positions in society, and not un
frequently revert to their former condition as a
palliation for their misconduct. Not a day passes
but a number of Bummers are arraigned before
the Mayor. They make their appearance there,
wearing an air of injured dignity, and in a con
sequential tone demand the cause of his arrest.
Habituated to seeking the Lock-up as a . lodg
ing place, they are under tl4) impression that
they went there the night previous of choice.
and indignantly repel the charge of being found
drunk and asleep on a cellar door. They listen
attentively to the testimony of the officer who
arrested them, at the conclusion of which they
look into the officer's face, and remark, "you're
a perjured man," or perhaps, in less chaste lan
guage, assure the witness teat he has sworn to
a lie. la, the Mayor, in indignent a orals, the
bummer protests his innocence, but on finding
that it is the determination of his honor to send
him over the way for a fortnight, his demeanor
changes, he acknowledges the justness of the
charge, and ba , eechingly begs, for mercy. Over
he goes, however. Not nnfrequently one-half
of the prisoners confined in the Lock-up are of
THE FOURTH STREET BETHEL.-Wm. Petty,
chaplain of Col. Wood's regiment stationed at
Camp Curtin, filled the pulpit of the Fourth
Street Bethel last evening, to the manifest grat
ification of a large and intelligent audience.
ATTENTION, CITIZEN.-A regular stated meet
ing of the Citizen Fire Company will be held
their hall this (Monday) evening, Dec 2, 1861,
at 7 o'clock. Every member is requested to be
punctual in attendance, as business of import
ance will be transacted. By order.
HORSE TRIEVES.—The country, just now
seems to be infested with horse thieves, and we
advise our farmer friends and others who are
possessed of fine animals, to look well to their
stable door fastenings. Several horses have
mysteriously disappeared recently from the vi
cinity ef Chambersburg.
THE " ANDERSON BODY GUARD." —This corps,
numbering over one hundred rank and file, ori
ginally intended as a body guard for Gen. Rob
ert Anderson, as commander of the Department
of Kentucky, arrived in our city this morning
from Carlisle Barracks en route for Kentucky,
where they will serve as a body guard to Gen.
Buell, now in command of that Department.
Nearly every county in the State has a repre
sentative in the "Guard," and taken altogether
there is not a finer looking body of men in the
A TOUGH ONE.—A correspondent of the Indi
ana Messenger states that while Mr. Wm. Gil
mons of Armstrong township, was hauling
pumpkins from a field, he discovered a land
turtle, held by one leg between a pumpkin and
a stone, where it had been caught by the rapid
growth of the former. The turtle had been
held so long that the pumpkin had grown over
it, and shaped a portion of the shell on its sur
face. When the vegetable was removed the
prisoner was released from his confinement, and
immediately traveled for other quarters. The
story (or the the pumkin) is a remarkable one.
FATHER AIM DAUGHTER.—There is no prettier
picture in life , than that of a daughter reading
to her aged father. The old man, while listen
ing to her silvery notes, goes back to other
times when another sat by his side and whis
pered words he will never hear again ; nor does
he wish to ; for, in soft evening light, he secs
her image reflected in her child, and, as one by.
one gentle emotions steal over him, he veils his
face, and the daughter, thinking him asleep,
goes noiselessly in search of other employment.
Virgin innocence , watching over the cares and
little wants of old age, is a spectacle fit for an
gels. lt is one of the links between earth and
heaven, and takes from the face of the mess
sarily hard and selfish world many of its harsh
THE Loss of RAILROAD CARL —Since the war
has broke out the freight cars of the different
railroads have been used freely upon one anoth
er's roads. The result is that none of them
know where their cars are. It is no unusual
thing to see cars of the New Jersey Central, or
Williamsport and Elmira and Pennsylvania
Railroad cars standing about the sidelings in
Washington. The Baltimore and Ohio have
lost over forty that they cannot find, and have
accordingly, sent men out all over the country
wherever a railroad runs to hunt them up and
get them home. The freight coming into
Washington would make one continuous string
from two and a half to three miles long.—
Thursday a train nearly a half a mile long,
loaded with wood, came in. Before the war,
wood along the road was poor sale, little er
none being sent. over the road; now the trade
is immense, and prices have again gone up for
woodland to almost fabulous rates.
Tun CASS OF LAriscres.-,The court martial
which originally tried and convicted the private
Lanahan for the murder of Major Lewis, of the
46th Perina., was reconvened last week, to re
consider that case. When Lanahan was called
upon to plead, he replied "guilty, for," he said,
"I committed the deed, and am willing to suffer
for it, although I had no desire to take his or any
man's life." The only witness against him, he
said; did not exaggerate his 'offence, but had
stated one or two incidents connected with the
affair of which the prisoner had no recollection;
but as he had previously been partially in
toxicated, and had but an indefinite conception, l
of the whole transaction, it Ives possible nothing
had been misstated or modified. He spoke with
much feeling of the officers of the. Provost
.Guard, enumerating by name Major Stone,
Captain Wenrick, Lieuts. Augustine and Voor
hes, and Adjutant Patch. The other prisoners,
too, he said, had respected his condition, and
through the canvass of his tent he had
often heard expressed fervent hopes for
his welfare and his escape from the ex
treme penalty of the law ; but he had no hcipe
of the latter. The sentence of death had been
or would be, pronounced against him, and he
was, through the consolation Of religion, ready
to expiate his crime. He thought great for
bearance was exhibited towards him, that he
was not killed on the spot, when he shot the
Major ; and for this he was thankful. He said :
On the opening of this war he had left his home
in good health and with a warm heart, to aid
in preserving the Government and the Union.
He served three months,, re inlisted for the war,
and up to the time of the act for which he ex
pected to suffer, he had no other object to ac
complish, and no hostility against any one save
the enemies of his country. He was crazed, he
said, when he fired the fatal shot. Rey. Father
Dougherty, of Rockville, continues to visit
Lanahan, and ministers to him the consolations
of the Catholic religion. •

PRUDENCE.-" One grain of prudence is of
more value that a cranium crowded with the
unbridled genius, - or a flowing stream of vain
wit. It is the real ballast of human life.' With
out it, dangers gather thick and fast around the
rail bark of man and hurry him on to distruc
ion. The shores of time are lined with wrecks
driven before the gale of imprudence. It is not
prudence for children to disregard the good
counsel of their parents and teachers. It is not
prudence for parents to let their children grow
up in idleness." It is not prudence to pay high
prices for . dry goods when you can purchase
them much less at the cheap store of 13rich

SERIOUS RAILROAD ACCIDENT. —The passenger
train from Baltimore due here at one o'clock to
day, when about a mile below Bridgeport, on
the opposite side of the river, ran over a cow
which threw the locomotive and two of the
front cars off the track. The locomotive and
the car next to it, ladened heavily with oysters,
went down tht embankment several feet.
The engineer and fireman were somewhat in
jured but not seriously. Directly after the
accident occurred, word was sent to the
officials of the road in this city who at once
despatched physicians to the scene of the
disaster to attend to the wants of the wound
ed. A special 'train was also sent forward
to convey the passengers to this city, who
arrived here at about 2. o'clock P. M.—
The mails were brought here from the other
side of the river, by order of the Postmaster,
The train for Baltimore will necessarily be
detained here for some hours. No blame what
ever can be attached to any of the railroad offi
cials—the cow being on the track, the train
could not be stopped in time to avoid the acci
FIRE. —The alarm of fire about 3 o'clock yes
terday morning, was occasioned by the burning
of a Couple of old stables, formerly used by Mr.
Neafer, in connection with his bone-boiling es
tablishment, about midway between the canal
and Paxton creek, opposite the Car Manufacto
ry. The fire bells of the city struck a general
alarm, and the• hose-carriages, engines and
hook and-ladder trucks were promptly in mo
tion, but before they arrived at the scene of
the conflagration the biiildings, owing to the
combustible material of which they were com
posed, were burned to the ground. Several
hogs, and a small quantity of hay, were con
sumed with the stables. The fire is supposed to
have been the work of an incendiary.
