Thursday Afternoon, January 23,1
SWOON IN —The "Staunton Guards," Capt. J.
A.Cartaari, were sworn into the United States
service to-day. The " Guards" are attached to
a regiment at Camp Curtin, and are under
Lualehiug order for the Scat of War.
SANFORD'S OPERA HOUSE.—'Phis popular place
of orutiFeuiut has become an "institution" in
our midst. The performances are always clever,
if we may judge from the happy faces n
cromu'ing the place to repletion, and we know
of no place where a pet son may more effec

be rep ated every evening this week.

"Prince of Humbugs," has turned up at Pitts

The &patch, of this morning, comes at him in
this manner :
"Sow we want to see, provided the authori

fools there are in Pittsburg, and hope to be able
to F aille 'hat the bogus Fakir will meet with

we hope that our citizens will not be duped by
even the hundred dollar horse."
TII6 MAIL ROBBING CASN.—The case of the
boy arrested night before last charged with
Purloinirer newspapers from the 'Unit( d States

yesterday afternoon. On this occasion he gave
his name as Charles Wheeler, and stated that

Ile acknowledged having taken the newspa

promising faithfully to " mend his ways." The
Mayor, however, was compelled to commit him
to prison, where he will remain until the
United States authorities in Philadelphia can

delinquent is about fourteen years of age, corn

This splendid body of young men, the flower
of Pennsylvania, originally mounted as a body
guard to General A nderson, and better known
bete as General Buel's body -:uard, will leave
to-day, it is expected, for active service.
This troop has been sworn in as all indepen

are exactly the men who may be expected to
accomplish a great deal, whether as scouts, or
skirmishers, or extra aide.
Yesterday the members of the troop made a
present of a splendid saddle and bridle to Lieut.

army officer, and is held in high esteem by all

MADAME ANNA BISHOP. —The re-appearance
of this lady after an absence of many years in
our city, was an event of no ordinary charac
ter. The large hall was filled with our music
loving people. It must have been most grati
fying to Madame Bishop the reception she got
on this occasion. All seemed delighted with
her singing. As we have not the time to par
ticularise each piece, we would mention the
sparkling song, "Robin Red Breast;" tho pa
thetic and plaintive old song of the "Beggar
Girl," being something new here, and sung for
the first time in this city. If we are to judge
and express an opinion, this was one of the
most successful concerts ever given in this city.
Mr. Seguin possesses a fine voice and sings
wall. He was heard to the best advantage in the
comic duets of "Quanto Amore" with Madame
Bishop his forte seems the buffo style. Mr.
De Speise is a fine pianist; we have had none
better save Thalburg. He shows groat school
ing, being, we understand, a pupil of the cele
brated Listz. We c &allot omit mentioning the
beautiful quality of the piano used on this oc
casion, being furnished by Mr. Knoche.
Madam e Amu, Bishop has been prevailed upon
to remain with us another night, giving an en
tire change of programme. She will appear in
scenes from Opera in costume, making this a
very interetttin; programme indeed. We
would certainly advise all to avail themselves
of tbe last opportunity of hearing this great
artist in this city.
A REMARKABLE CRIMINAL CAUL—One of the
most interesting cases that have ever been
hied in this county, came off yesterday. A
young girl by the name of Jane Bowman was
indicted for concealing the death of a bastard
child. The evidence, as detailed in court,
Henkel to be conclusive as to her guilt. Her
appearance was testified to by various witnes
s, showing that she presented the look of a
Pngnant woman ; also, that a full grown child
was found in the cess-pool of the house in
which she resided, wrapped up in an apron
similar to une that had been made for the de
fendant by a seams Less. Also, that on the
very day that the child was alleged to have
been born, she had been taken suddenly with
eicknem. These, and many analagous facts,
were in evidence. However, the defence show
ed that the prisoner had submitted herself to
a rigid medical and scientific test, the result of
w hich was that she never had conceived; and that
her sitiness had been t.roduced by a return of
the menstrual flow, which had been checked.
In addition to this, a highly respectable clergy
man or this city, testified that he had married
the defendant more than a year ago. The sen
sation produced in court when this testimony
was heard was marked and striking. It corn_
pletely vindicated the character of the defer'.
dant• and showed that she bad been the victim
of either much malice, or of a great mistake.
Tha case was conducted for the Commonwealth
by A. Herr, Esq., and for the defence by Jno.
0 Kunkel and R. A. Lamberton, Esq'rs. On
both sides it was well and ably managed.
COURT PROCINDINGB.- The following cases
have been disposed of since our last report:
Corn. vs. Jane Bowman. Indictment, con
cealing the death of a bastard child. Prorecu
Com. vs. S. S. Cole. Indictment, assault
and battery. Verdict—guilty.
Com. vs. John M'Cullough. Indictment,
felonius assault and battery. Plead guilty and
Corn. vs. Robert Basking. Indictment, as

The Grand Jury of the term, having con
cluded their labors, submitted the folloWing
report, after which they were discharged from
further attendance :
2b the Honorable ()mat of Quarter Sessions of Dam
p inn County, lan,,ary term , 1862.
The Grand Inquest, for the ommonwealth
of Pennsylvania, inquiring for the County of
Dauphin, respectfully report that they Wive
finished all the business submitted to them
for their action. We have passed upon sixty
six bills. of this number we returned thirty
eight "No true Bill." A portion of these lat
ter cases, should, in the judgment of the Grand
Jury never had reached the grand jury room,
and indeed, should never have came into
court at all even had there been sufficient evi
dence to warrant the jury in finding a "True
Bill;" still, their bearing upon the peace of the
community is of so trivial a character, that
they would hardly be worth the time of the
court, or the expense necessarily attending
their trial. The Grand Jury is inclined to the
belief, that were justices of the peace and al
derman, more mindful of the true interests of
the county, and did they exercise a more pru
dent discretion, much of the time of the Grand
Jury and court might be saved, and unneces
sary costs to the county spared, instead of send
ing up to the court cases of very small moment,
or cases depending on flimsy and very doubtful
testimony, the committing magistrate might
dispose of them finally themselves. For sure
ly, if there is not sufficient evidence to warrant
the Grand Jury in finding a "True Bill" there
can hardly be sufficient to give the case an im
portance worthy the time and labor of the
court and jury, to say nothing of cots to the
county, which might be employed to more ad
vantage to the people. We are somewhat sur
prised to learn from the District Attorney that
the number of bills sent up at this term is less
than usually engages the attention of the
Grand Jury. While this fact affords some
small occasion for congratulation, it still fur
nishes a sad commentary upon the morality
and virtue of our people. The offences against
law, order and common decency, are quite too
numerous. The vigilence of the police and
the terrors of the law seem to be, to a great
extent, impotent. The force of public opinion
and the influence of religion, seem also to exert
but little restraining power.
Depraved human nature, regardless of the
restraints of morality, the peace of society,
or the punishment that await. evil doers,
seems wedded to its own corruptions and, bent
on mischief. It is true, the tendency of our
unsanctified nature, is to do wrong ' • but, it is
also true, that the majority of cases that swell
up our callender of crime, have their origin in
other causes than a mere love of doing wrong.
It cannot be denied that much of the crime
that harrasses and disgraces society is closely
allied with poverty and want. But poverty,
itself, is, in very many instances, the conse
quences of imprudent and wrong doing. Pov
erty and crime are not twin sisters, unless
made so by outside and unnatural causes.—
These causes, we think, are manifest. Are
they not found in the unrestrained and reck
less indulgence of intoxicating drinks? Intem
perance prevails to a fearful patent, and is in
deed, the natural mother of vice, and, in our
judgment, is chargeable with a large propor
tion, if not a majority, of these petty offenses,
such as assault and battery, riot, lanceny,
as well as crimes of a graver character,which
absorb the time of our criminal courts, and
piles costs upon our county to little purpose.
Thus far a remedy for this evil has been sought
in vain, and whatever measures could be adopt
ed that would measurably check it, would be
hailed by every good citizen with cordial de.
light. It seems to the Grand Jury that we
have far more drinking houses than the good
of the community or the morals of society re
quire. This evil, no doubt, grows out of our
license law itself, but even in that law are
found safe-guards, which, if properly and
duly enforced, would, to some extent at
least, modify much of its baneful results. In
addition to our more respectable drinking sa
loons, where in many cases the habit of drink
ing gets its imtetus, we have a hoard of low
groceries, where cheap whisky and three-cent
glasses of what they call brandy are dealt out
without stint oviiscrimination. Is it wonder
ful that intemperance should thrive when the
temptations are so multitudious Is it' less
wonderful that crime should abound in the same
ratio? The police augment their fees in no
small degree by their diligence in looking up
and arresting drunken men, particularly of a
certain sort, who are overcome bylithe whiskey
sold them by some trafficker in the article, where
greed for money overrides his qualms of con
science. We find no fault with this action of
he police. On the other hand, it is proper, as
far as it goes. But all this is but adding to the
public expense, while the fountain head of the
evil is permitted to send out its pestiferous
streams unchecked. It seems to tha grand jury
that a more vigilant looking after the vender
of the article that made their prisoners drunk,
while they don't fail to take care of the drunk
ard, the cause of humanity and the public peace
would be considerably the gainer, while the
finances of the county would find a more profit
able investment. If the law were promptly
enforced when liquor is given to men already
under its influence, good would be done, and if
those who sell to habitual drunkards or minors
were hunted up and brought before Court, much
disorder and drunkenness would be prevented.
While the grand jury have no information as to
the persons who violate the law in this respect,
yet that it is done there is no room for doubt,
as the evidences that meet the eye in our streets
are neither few nor far between. We trust our
police will be held to a prompt discharge of
their whole duty.
The Grand Jury also feel it their duty to
refer to another evil, occurring quite too often
in this city, and in different towns throughout
the county, undisturbed by the proper au
thorities. We allude to what are modestly
called " Gift &ores, Gift Pedlars and Gift ()Gn
arls." To call these schemes for money making
Lotteries would, perhaps, be too unblushing
a defiance of the law. If this is not a viola
tion of the law against lotteries, it is, at least,
an evasion of it, and is as demoralizing in its
influence. The mode of procedure of this
comparatively modern swindle we need not
attempt to describe, as nearly every person is
acquainted with it. It is a nuisance that should
be abated by the proper officers, and we re
spectfully recommend it to the notice ef the
The east ends of Market and Chestnut
streeta, in this city, are frequently blocked up
by trains of care, being left stand across said
streets an unreasonable length of time, to the
annoyance and detention of those who have
occasion to travel in that direction. A. little
more attention to those obstructions, by the
proper officers, would remedy this evil.
The Jury would also beg le thatg to
notice of the court the fact the
crossing of Mulberry street, at Second street,
is rendered extremely dangerous by the fail
ure of the Cumberland Valley Railroad Com
pany to post watchmen at said crossing, to
warn corners and goera of the approach of
the cars. We havt heard of several hair
Pennsylvania Mailp adegravh, Ourstray 'liftman. January 23, 1062
breadth escapes at this 'point, and, for the
better security of passers by, we trust that
said railroad compa . .y may be compelled to
adopt some signal by which all accidents may
be avoided. If this is within the power of
the court, we respectfully ask its interference.
If, however, this matter falls properly under
the jurisdiction of the city authorities, we
trust the matter complained of will be speed
ily remedied by them. In this latter event,
we would respectfully recommend it to the
attention of the Mayor and City Solicitor.
Whereas it is represented that the fund ap
propriated by the county Commissoners in aid
of the families of our brava volunteers, who are
now in the army of the United States, in defence
of the integrity of our glorious Union, is ex
hausted. In view of this fact, the grand jury
would respectfully recommend to the Commis
sioners of our county, to appropriate a further
sum of eight thousand dollars to the same pur
poses, to be placed in the hands of the court,
to be by it distributed to the families of the
soldiers from Dauphin county, in the service of
our country, in such sums, and at such times,
as the court, in its discretion, may diem.pro-
per. We most cordially recommend this ap•
propriation, as an obligation the people of this
county owe to our brave defenders of their
families. The portion that would fall to each
tax-payer to pay would be a mere unit in com
parison to-the sacrifices made by our soldiers
in behalf of law and good government, while
we remain in all the enjoyments of the com•
forts of home and in the pursuit of our various
callings. We feel satisfied that no patriotic
tax-payer could have it in his .or her heart to
find faint with our Commissioners should they
concur with us in the views above set forth.
We would also bespeak the influence of the
court in their behalf. We visited the county
prisonand found everything in good order,
and therefore have no suggestions to make.
All of which is respectfully submitted.
