BILLS IN EQUITY ABOUT TO BE FILRD.-A cor
respondent of the Philadelphia Evening Journal
states that two bills in equity are about to be
filed against , the Pennsylvania railroad company,
the Westmoreland coal company and others,
the object of which seems to be to obtain jus-
tice and redress from the respondents for cer-
Lain parties in the gas coal business, who claim

POSTPONED. — Prof. M'Coy' a Lecture entitled
"an Historical vindication of Temperance So
cieties," advertised to be delivered last night
in the Fourth street Bethel, for the benefit of
Advance Lodge I. 0. of Good Templars, in con
sequence of the inclement state of the weather,

At the suggestion of their teachers, eighteen or
twenty of the good and loyal misses of Oxford,
Chester county, Public school, are industriously
employed at knitting socks and mils for the
soldiers, Since commencing their additional
labor, they find that they have time to knit and
study too. Their desire to complete as many
pair as possible before they are imperatively
needed, has led them to determine to knit a
few pair in "double quick" time during the hol
idays of Christmas week, and forward them as a
New Year present, through the medium of the
Oxford Aid Association. We should like to see
the young school misses of our city follow the
example of their Chester county sisters in this
patriotic labor. Which teacher will first intro

Cmusmus.—Notwithstanding the great po
litical excitement which prevails throughout
the country, oar people are nevertheless deter
mined to enjoy Christmas, and the appearance
of things indicate that it will be observed in
this city with the usual festivity. Yesterday
and to-day evergreens for preparing the Christ
mas trees were to be seen all over the city, and
for decorating the churches a large quantity
WOO procured. There will be feasting, but there
are many who in times past enjoyed the com
forts of life, will now he compelled to forego
the ordinary pleasures of the occasion. The
poor are in great need, and in the midst of fes
tivity should not be forgotten ; they never have
been by the people of Harrisburg, and there is
no doubt many blank faces will be made to
and joy carried to many a fireside by the
appearance of a portion of the luxuries so abun
dant on each recurrence of Christthas.

GOOD FOE THE EYES.- -Everybody acknowl
edges that the receipt of a gold piece is good for
the eyes, especially when one is troubled with
the "shdrts." Another very good thing for
the eyes, either near or far sighted, is a pair of
fine spectacles, such only as can be furnished
by our enterprising friend M'Calla, No. 38,
Carom Seramo.—The following is recom
mended as fin A. No. 1, receipt for making
chicken saled : Two heads of celery, two chick
ens, ten eggs, six small cucumber pickles, one
tablespoonful of mustard, a little Cayenne pep
per, and half a cup of batter. Wash the yolks
of the eggs, put in the seasoning with a little
vinegar, chop the whites of the eggs, the pick

SANFORD.—The irresistible Sanford, of pleas
ant memory, re-opened Brant's Hall last night
with his famous troupe to a large and appreci
ative audience. The programme for to-night's
entertainment is brim-full of good things—a re
gular holiday dish, in fact—prepared only as
manager Sanford can prepare such matters for
the enjoyment of his patrons. To-morrow the
troupe will give three performances—morning,
afternoon and evening—each of which will ter
minate with the grand spectacular, dramatic,terp
sichorean, mirth-provoking, side-splitting, and
expressive pantomime entitled the "Three Leg
ged Monster, Harlequin or The Fighting Shoe
maker and Tailor." The piece will be brought out
with all the appurtenances of scenery, machin
ery and dresses, which created such a furore at
the manager's opera house in Philadelphia.—
This is certainly a very liberal bill of entertain
ment, and we cannot see how any lover of
amusement with a quarter in his pocket can
stay away from the hall.

Washington, Secretary of Cassius Mf Clay's
Washington Guards, having kindly complied
with the invitation by the officers, and deliver
ed this day before the officers and men of Camp
Curtin, his eloquent and masterly oration on
" the London Times on the Rebelion and the
War against the National Constitution," deliv
ered on the National-Fast Day, before the Pres
ident and Cabinet, in the capitol, and before the
Governor and Heads of Departments, in the
State capitol of Pennsylvania, the undersigned
were appointed by the officers and men of Camp
Curtin to publish their acknowledgments
through the public press ; not only for the
gratification and delight, which has thus been
afforded to them by the splendid display of ora
tory, but for the statesmanlike manner in
which the orator vindicates our national cause,
against the misrepresentation and assault of
hostile journals and the statesmen in England.
While this great oration thus fires the hearts of
those who are already in the field, the officers
and men of camp Curtin will feel strengthened
to know, theft same firm appeals are being
made to our people who remain at home ;
and that the cause of the soldier is being ad
vocated by so gifted and powerful an orator.
In behalf of the officers and men at Camp
Curtin. S. A. MEREDITH,
Col. Commanding Camp Curtin.
