Friday Afternoon, December 13, 1861.
l'Assoo COUNNERFEIT MONEY.—We understood
that a party of men wearing the uniform of sol
diers, have been endeavoring to pass counterfeit
five and ten dollar bills at several of the stores
in our city. OUT merchants and business men
should be on the look out for these scamps.
Me FIFTH ARTILLEILY.—SeveraI companies of
the Fifth 11. S. Atillery, stationed at Camp
Greet)le, under the command of Capt. Seynmiur,
favored our citizens with a street parade this
morning. They were accompanied with their
horses and batteries; and made altogether a
very imposing appearance.
CLIIEF of POLICE.-officer Barney Campbell
has been honored by the Mayor with the right
to flourish the badge of Chief of Police. The
new Chief has been 'attending to the duties of
that office for some time, but was not formerly
invested with the title until yesterday. Officer
Campbell, during his career as a policeman, has
exhibited a commendable degree of energy,
which we feel assured will in no wise:be dimin
ished by his promotion.
COTILLION PARTY.-A grand cotillion party
will be given at Exchange Hall, on Thursday
evening, the 19th inst., under the mangement
of Mr. James Sprucebanks. The parties of Mr.
Sprucebanks are distinguished for the good
decorum that prevails, and the social enjoy
ment and amusement generally that they afford
to all participants. Our readers who desire to
spend an hour or so in tripping it on "the light
fantastic toe" should make it a point to be on
BOATING.—The boating business still contin
ues brisk on the Pennsylvania and Union Ca
nals. All the boats, old and new, from one
end of the line to the other, capable of carrying
freight, have been pressed into service, and it
is many years since the boatmen derived such
freights as they are getting this fall. As the
season advances, freight increases, and there is
a revival on the canal which makes these who
sacrificed the'ir boats early in the season, look
THE " Sir.vna GRAYS, " Captain Palmer,
marched into. the City this morning from Camp
Curtin, with the view of being mustered into
the service of the United States, but as the
ages of the members were considerably over the
limit fixed by law, the mustering officer, Capt.
Dodge, postponed that duty until he received
further instructions from Washington. The
"Greys" then returned to Camp Curtin, where
they will remain until the question of their ac
ceptance is determined by the proper authori
ties. • ;
THE AUDITOR GENERAL AND THE BROKERS.-
Hon. Thomas E. Cochran, the Auditor General
of the State, has issued a circular inviting the
attention,of the brokerk and bankers to thepro
visions of an act of Assembly, enacted at the
first session of 1861, relating to brokers and pri
vate bankers. The first section of this act re
quiress return to be made under oath, to the
Auditor General, of the receipts from commis
sions, discounts, &c., and requiring a. tax of
three per cent. upon the aggregate, to be paid
into the State Treasury for a sinking „hind for
the reduction of . the State debt. •The, third
section provides a penally of one thousand..dol
lais, to he collectecl.as taxes on bank dividends
are now collected. The brokers hold the law
to be at once oppressive' and unconstitutional,
and, for the most part, refuse to comply with
its provisions. The matter will doubtless go to
the Supreme Court.

who refused to give her name, was arraigned,

PROF. M'Cov is to deliver his great lecture
on "the London Ernes on the Rebellion," in
Columbia this evening. The Lancaster Rxpress
in alluding to the delivery of the oration in
that city, says "as an evidence of its superior
merits, we need but allude to the fact that by
general desire of those who were present; the
Professor repeated thp . oration on Monday even
ing. The spacious court room on both -occa
sions was crowded to its utmost capacity. In
manner and matter, the Professor was peculiarly
happy. Patriotism and love for the Union,
flashed through everyf sentence and paragraph.
The speaker was justly pointed and severe, not
only on the London Times, but also upon Dr.
Russell, the American correspondent of that
paper. The Professor proved from facts and
data incontroirertible, that the writer for the
Tones in this country had been guilty of the
grossest misrepresentations—in plain parlance,
that lying about the government of the United
States and the loyal men who are defending it,
composed the chief staple of his letters.".
The oration will be delivered in the hall of
the House of Representatives before the Gover
nor, Heads of Department and citizens; at. the
Capitol, in this city, to morrow night; and we
advise all who admire a brilliant rhetorical dis
play to be on hand.
DAVIS' GREAT PANORAMA Or AMERICA AND
THE REBELLION.—This great and truly magnifi
cent work of art was exhibited at Brant's Hall,
in this city, for the first time, last
the largest audience ever assembled in that
building. Long before the hour advertised for
opening the hall, nearly every seat was oc
cupied, and by seven o'clock so dense was the
crowd that it became necessary to announce
from the office that no more tickets would be
sold. A.t this time the isles, and every availa
ble stand-point, in the large hall was densely
packed by the multitude, to the great preju
dice of crinoline, silk bats and sensitive toes.
The panorama, as a work of art, certainly de
serves more than a passing notice, such as is
given to common exhibitions claiming the at
tractions of either historic celebrity or natural
beauty. Mr. Davis does not pretend to illus
trate, by a long series of pictorial delineations,
all the connected events in American history.
Such &work would be as impractical as a drama
embodying all the incidents in our remarkable
career, and therefore he only portrays such facts
as are indelibly stamped in history, and
through its faithful annals, have become fa
miliar to the people. From the discovery
of America by Jolumbus to the discovery
of the Mississippi by De Sota, the artist has de
voted to the illustration of Indian peculiarity
and landscape scenery. His grouping and his
portraits are admirable—natural, graceful and
spirited. Indeed this feature of the panorama
we regard as infinitely superior to all its other
attractions, whatever these may be in the esti
mation of the artist and the public. His fig
ures, life size and in all respects fully developed,
are superior to any of those we have ever seen
in any panorama, and we venture the assertion
that this feature will be its main attraction
when it finds its way before larger and more
critical audiences than the one which so warm
ly welcomed its first exhibition last night. His
war dances, council scenes anctrude battle en
counters of the red man, will certainly win Mr.
Davis celebrity, for their energy, their blend
.ed coloring, and the striking boldness with
which he• has succeeded in producing the most
gorgeous effects on illuminated canvass. What
ever is animated, heiseems at once to catch its
glow. He doubtless adadres action, and has well
'studied the anatomy of both Man and beast. His
'horses would be an improvement on many of Rosa
Bonheur's celebrated efforts, and it is not writ
, ing either fulsomely of the artist or in too
flattery terms of his great effort in this pano
rama, to pronounce it a work on: which he can
safely rest his merits for high reputation and
fame. Our own individual idea-of the work,
after having had ample opportunity and facility
for examining other great efforts in panoramic
painting, is at once in its favor for faithfulness
and perfection: There is no fault to be found
with its details. Its subjects are all eminently
Amercan—all illustratingsome distinct event in
our history, or some peculiarity in, our, people.
We Would desire no greater fortune than to be the
possessor and the producer of the Panorama of
America and the Great Rebellion.
Those sections of the panorama which pre
sent scenes and events in the great struggle in
which we are now engaged for . the Constitution
and laws of our government, are entirely origi
nal, faithful either to the description of men
who have been witnesses of those events ,or
moved among thoSe scenes. Some of these are
really startling. and grand. They are the por
traitures of the most evil times in the history of,
the Republic —the perpetuation of the horrors of
treason on canvass, which will do much in as
sisting to arouse and consolidate a loyal senti
ment wherever the panorama is exhibited. .
We congratulate; the young artist on his bril
lint success. We congratulate him that, after
Yeara of patient labor with his pencil in the si
lenc,e of his studio, fame andfortune are about to
reward hini for his labor and'crown his manly
ambition withsuccess: That 'his panorama
will prove a great success there is no doubt, if
he can now join to `his genius the disbretien and
ability of some really honest and industrious
husiness man. We would hint, 'too, that the
services of some one other-than the artist in de
scribing the scenes as they are unrolled would
be a most judicious change: The artist himself
dare not praise his own work, and therefore in his
dscription it looses much attraction on this
account. These are business arrangements,
hOiever, entirely within the control and the
direction of Mr. Davis. The Panorama will
be again exhibited at Brant's Hall this evening,
and to morrow and Monday evenings.•
:M_Rs. LINCOLN' NEW BONNET. —One of the en•
terprising shopkeepers of New York, who an
nounces himself as the " leader of fashion,"
lately conceived the idea of paying a most deli
ca;te and Sentimental testimony of admiration
to our President, by means of an'offerhigto his
amiable wife. Its expression in the shape of a
bonnet, has been attracting many curious eyes
to the store which enshrined- it, and on Monday
the express company was made happy by having
consigned to its care this . , $3O worth of head
gear. Viewed with the eyes of sense, it is said
to be simply a modish hat of shined,' white,
cut velvet, having a crown composed of bouillo
nees of tule, overlaid with blonde lace. .Ostrich
plumes of white and Magenta crimson • adorn
bath in and outside. But its. arresting feature
consists of strings which were manufactured in
Europe especially for the hat. They are of
broad, white, lustring ribbon, upon which
appear.at regular intervals light portraits, en
bueti, of the Presideht ; each one is surrounded
by a halo of Magenta crimson forget-me-nots ;
an American shield rests above him, surmount
ed: by an eagle from whoSe beak floats a blue
pendant, with ,the motto " Union Forever."
Thus, regarding the bonnet with the eyes of
imagination, it gleams upon us as an exhibit-of
patriotic devotion, and an offering, most touch
ing to the wifely affection of its destined recipi
ent, beneath whose dimpled chin will be pris
oned at least, three of the " counterfeit present
ments" of our respected President.

HUNTING Ak CATAMOUNT.— A grand catamount
hunt came off at Greenville, (Marion c mnty,
one day last week, and afforded a large amount
of excitement to the people of the neighbor
hood The varment was started in fine style,
and darted away with a whole pack of dogs af
ter it. It Ras soon overtaken and killed, but
not until it had whipped seven dogs, some of
them Southern blood hounds. Several men and
boys were scratched by the creature, but none
of them severely.. There is said O'be another
of the same kind in the same neighborhood,
and preparations are being made for its capture.
For Lte Tolegraph
Duncan Island, situated in the upper end of
this county, has certainly sent more volunteers
to fill the ranks of our army than any other
place we have heard from as yet in the loyal
With a population of only 170, the town has
furnished 33 as brave men as are in the field.—
This is one-fifth of the whole population, and
on an average one and a half to every tenable
house in the place; and if this is not enough,
there are ten or a dozen more who are willing
and eager to join their brethren already in the
field. And this is not the first time by any
means that this gallant little place has
proved her loyalty. It will be remembered
that the "Cameron Guard," that served so
uravely through the Mexican war, had a larger
proportion of members from this place than
even Harrisburg Fifteen patriots volunteered
in the Guard, some of "them are now sleeping
beneath the sod of Mexico, while others are
gallantly struggling for the Union in the pre
sent war. J. R. S.
THE LAST ARRIVAL.-
The last arrival we have had,
Briumi us the information,
That England's anger is aroused
Against this Yankee nation ;
BeCause two traitors have been caught,
On board an English mailer,
By one of Uncle Sam's fast ships—
A real Yankee sailor.
Shame noisy, boasting Albia,
Our cause you have derided,
And now you'd act the coward's part,
To tight us when divided.
But we can whip you even yet,
As twice we done before like fun,
So you can meet us when you will,
And we will make a John Bull run.
But later than the latest yet,

That flew along their iron track,
And landed safe at Keller's :
