Tuesday Afternoon, January 21, 1862,
CONTALWING.-WO are pleased to learn that
Lieut. Col. Wm. B. Sipes, of the Seventh Penn
sylvania Cavalry, who has been lying ill in
Philadelphia for many weeks, of typhoid fever,
is now recovering. His life was at one time
A SELL.—The arrival of Anna Bishop at Mel
bourne is announced in the Australian papers.
It ii stated the "lady's at at a very low pecu
niary ebb " Somebody is "doing" the Austra
lians Madame Bishop will give a concert at
Bract's Hall, in this city, tomorrow e. ening.
MORE LARGE Posrcaus.—Mr. Benjamin Erb,
of Hampdon township, Cumberland county,
raised and recently slaughtered four hogs, weigh
ing respectively 502, 511, 572 and 609 pounds
—making a total of two thousand one hundred and
ninety-tour pounds of pork ! Bully for old mother
GERMAN BALL.-A grand soiree dansante
will be given at Brant's Hall, on Thursday
evening, January 80. It is got up under the
auspicies of several of our prominent citizens,
and from the arrangements making, we have
no doubt it will be one of the most brilliant
affairs of the season.
Samoan's OPERA HOUSE.— The " Seven Sis
ters," at Sanford's Opera House, last night,
were greeted with a large, fashionable and ap
preciative audience. It is decidedly one of
the most stirring plays yel produced by Mana
ger Sanford, and prom i,es to have a successful
run. Go and see the " Seven Sisters "by all
CAMP WAYNE —The recent attempt to set fire
to Camp Wayne, and the fear that it will be
burned clown by the enemies of the Govern
ment, has induced Governor Curtin to order it
to be taken down. The work of demolition will
be at once commenced. It is hard to conceive
any motive a loyal man should have for the van
dal attempt to set fire to this establishment.
WAR MATERIAL. —A large number of thirteen
inch mortars have been passing for the last few
days through this city on
Railroad to Philadelphia, en route for New
York. They were cast in the Fort Pitt Foun
dry, near Pittsburg, which establishment has
turned out some of the heaviest ordinance in
the service, in addition to a large supply of
STABBING AFFRAY.—Two colored men in
Columbia land a difficulty a few days ago, with
quite a serious result. One of them named
Johnson, supposed to be from York county,
stabbed his comrade several times, cutting him
severely in the abdomen and in the lungs.
The injured man, it ict thought, will die of
his wounds. Johnson was arrested and taken
to Lancaster by Constable M'Ginnis, and taken
to the County Prison to await trial.
THR STATE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY .--The an
nual meeting of the State Agricultural Society
commenced at the society's rooms, in Second
street, this city, at 2 o'clock this afternoon.
The attendance is unusually small, yet there
seems to be much interest manifested in the
proceedings by those present. After the trans
action of some preliminary business, the So
ciety proceeded to the election of officers,
which was still progressing at a o'clock, r. M.,
when our report closed.
IT IS ROMANTICALLY, and WO hope truth fully,
told, that a young lady, now an operative at
a shoe factory at Lynn, Mass., was formerly
one of the "upper ten" in Central Europe.—
She received a superior education, learned three
or four languages, moved in high circles in early
life, and waltzed and flirted with the younger
members of the royal family of her native land.
She left her castle borne with a false I riend, and
on discovering her position, preferred to earn
her living by steady toil in an humble calling,
rather than plunge in the gulf of vice.
COURT PROCEEDINGS. The following cases
have been disposed of since the issue of last
evening's edition of the TELEGRAPH:

MADAME Mimes CONCERT.—Quite a number
of seats have been taken at Knoche's music
store for the concert of Madame Bishop on
Wednesday evening, and the audience promises
to be large and fashionable. The Pittsburg
Dispatch„ is speaking of a recent operatic per
formance of this lady, says :
Madame Bishop's First Concert, on Saturday
night, drew a well filled house, notwithstand
ing the extremely disagreeable weather, and
those who were so fortunate as to be in attend
ance had a musical treat seldom furnished us
The singing was chiefly of ballads, and the pe
culiar sweetness of Madame Bishop's voice was
perhaps better developed than in the more ar
tistic operatic roles generally selected for an
opening concert. In every respect the high
fame which preceedcd her was fully sustained,
and of Seguin we need only say that he exceed
ed the anticipations of every one who heard
him. Nearly every piece was rapturously
encored, an I the ready compliance of
the performers with the wish thus ex
pressed by the audience was the more gratify
ing as it was unusual. The buffo duets were
received with such applause as rarely greets
even the most finished performances, as much
owing to the spirit with which both performers
sustained their parts as to the merit of the
pieces. Though unheralded by a flourish of
trumpets, the pianist, Gustave de Spiese, w oe
golden opibions from his audience by his skill
in the executbm of most instrumental accom
paniment. From first to last the performance
was excellent, and we note with pleasure that
it will be repeated on Monday night with selec
tions, en costume, from the hest operas.
Tun RIVER.—The recent mild weather and
heavy rains has produced quite a flood in the
river. This morning the water was sever al
feet above low water mark, and still rising.
THE " Gaorro."—From seven o'clock in the
evening until near eleven, the management of
this snug place of amusement presents a rapid
succession of performances the best of their
kind—so that the audience never grows we.a.y.
The charming danseuse, Miss Jett Paten,
made a decided hit, last night, in producing a
new dance, which exhibited her talents in the
Terpischorean art to fine advantage.
SUPERINTBNDBNT OP THB PUBLIC GROUNDS.
The committee of both Houses on public
buildings and grounds met this morning and
appointed Mr. JOHN B. WBALAND, of this city,
Superintendent of the Public Grounds for the
next year, in the room of Mr. Gro. W. Born.
Mr. Boyd has occupied the position for the past
two years, and discharged his duty faith
fully anil to the satisfaction of all concern
ed. We hope Mr. Weeland will be equally
attentive, and from his well known character,
we have every assurance that he will make a
DIM IN CONSEQUENCE OP INHALING THEIR OWN
BREATH.—PoIice reports are made in Philadel
phia ccasionally of infants smothered in bed,
in consequence of inhaling their own breath.
Great care should be used to give them fresh
air, and not allow bed covering entirely to en
velope them. Cases sometimes occur when
women begging in the streets completely wrap
shawls round their inf.nts, and exclude air to
such a degree that the children are overpowered
as with the fumes of charcoal, by the delecterl
ous atmosphere, and die without a struggle,
when they are thought merely to be sleeping.
ANOTHER EXPEDITION CONTEMPLATED:-It is
stated that another expedition will shortly be
despatched from Philadelphia for some point
on the Southern coast, and that the troops in
tended for it will include a full brigade from
this State, to be made up of the incomplete
regiments now stationed at Camp Curtin and
elsewhere. Col. Wilson's regiment, now at
Camp Curtin, will, it isbelieved, form one of the
brigade. It is also stated that Col. Good's regi
ment, the Forty-seventh, is about to be de
tached from the lines in front of Washington,
and sent on duty to the Florida coast. It is
not said whether or not any other force accom
CONFEDERATE " SHINPLARFE Re " Captain
Brooks, of the Verbeke Ries, now stationed
with the army at Hancock, Md., has sent to a
gentleman connected with this office, a sample
of " Shinplasters " issued by the various town,
borough and city corporations in " Dixie," for
the purpose of keeping the " machinery in
motion." The sample before us represents the
value of " five cents," and was issued by the
corporation of Winchester. The picture on
the left corner of the note was evidently in
tended to represent a juvenile god " Mer
cury," but looks more like the battered im
pression of a worn-out wood-cut of a turkey
buzzard. Directly below this is a large-sized
figure "5," enclosed in check-work. The
right end of the note contains a similar figure
" 5," flanked above and below with a continu
ous "border." The main body of the note
reads as follows :
Issued under the Act v .
State of }
of the Corporation. i ' ir g inia
Winchester,Agricultural Oct. 3,1861.
Done by the
Corporation of Winchester.
Payable in Virginia Bank notes by the
Treasurer to Bearer on presentation of
these due bills, in sums of FIVE DOLLARS.
W. A. B. Coffroth, J. R. Bowen,
The note is printed on miserable, flimsey
brown paper, with a texture, soft and greasy as
a cast off finger rag; and is altogether a curios
A HIT ON THE Music Kona. —ln most of the
popular frenzies on the connection of mind and
body, some piece of successful treatment of dis
ease is seized upon and held up as the legiti
mate system to be pursued in health. Because
a shower bath occasionally gives to a disordered
system the freshness and vivacity wLich it had
forgotten, people tell you to take one every
day, and that you shall be sure to be fresh and
alive. The experiment fails. Because a bon
vivant gains spirit and energy when he cuts off
half his luxuriant dinner, Sylvester Graham
tells him, virtually, that if he will give up the
other half, he will have twice as much spirit
And in physical exercise, because a man
works more lightly and happily after a walk,
or other exercise sufficient to promote diges
tion and renew appetite, we are told to work
like Hercules in a gymnasium, and to walk
like Captain Walker in the training ground.
All this is absurd. If a man wants to work
with his mind, he only wastes food, time, and
life, by bringing his body up to the mark of a
blacksmith's or a boxer's. He needs to run a
mile in five-thirty, nor to lift six hundred
pounds, nor to walk up to the house-top by
the lightning rod. He wants exercise enough
to keep him in high spirits, good appetite, and
that absolute health which almost forgets
there is a body to be cared for.
The truth is, that a prime, condition of vivid
intellectual labor is that one give as little at
tention as is practicable to the tools with which
he works. And just as the mower loses repute
for mowing yrho is constantly setting his scythe
anew, or stopping to sharpen it, and just as he
advances more slowly than the more skilful
workman who does not complain of his tools,
the mental artisan who works lightly in the
hotness with which it has pleased God to clothe
his spirit, advances with the most success and
most rapidity. It is folly to pretend there are
no tools. It is folly to leave them to rust in the
meadow over night. It is folly to pretend there
is no harness. It is folly to leave the harness
without oiling it. But it is worse folly to spend
all one's life in sharpening one's scythe, or in
beautifying the traces of the collar.

THOMAS WILLIAMS ON THE REBELLION.—Copies
of the London Ameriean, brought over by the
last steamer, have been passing about the
House of Representatives in this city, and have
been very eagerly read. They contain a letter
written by Thomas Williams, one of the Rem
resentatives from Allegheny county, to Captain
Schenley, of the English army. It has been
very generally read and commanded high en
comiums for the remarkable clearness of style
and the force °f i ts statements. It is a resume
of the history of the leading events, both mili
tary and civil, which have occurred since the
breaking out of the rebellion up to just before
the meeting of Congress. He was most hearti
ly congratulated upon all sides by his fellow
members of the House.
