each of the fire companies of our city.
EXTENSIVE ROBE ERN.--The packing room in
the basement of the, dry good store of Abraham
Einstein, corner of Second and Walnut street
this city was burgl , triously entered last night and
robbed of a large quantity of goods, consisting of
gentlemen's shawls, blankets, calicoes, white
double sheetinK pillow cwe muslin, carpet
bags, muslin, stockings, dress goods, and Ken
tucky je tus, the whole valued at between
three and four hundred dollars. The robbers
effected an entrance by fo,cing the lock of the
front cellar door. No clue has yet been obtain

POLICE BangEs.—The City Council has passed
an ordinance, (which has been signed by the
Mayor,) providing that the Chief Police Con
stable shall wear a metal star or badge marked
"Chief Police Constable," and members of the
police force appointed by the Mayor or other
competent authority, a metal star or badge
marked "Police Coesi able," the said stars or
badges to be procured by the officers at their
own expense. It also provides that if any per
son, except a member of the police force, and
except also a substitute, who shall be discharg
ing the duties of a police officer, and appointed
by the Mayor or other competent authority,
publicly wearing such star or badge as may be
worn by a member of the police force, shall,
upon conviction, forfeit and pay a fine of of
less than four nor more than ten dollars for
every of€ence—one•half of the fine to the in
former and the other half for the use of the
city, to be recovered before the Mayor as other
fines and forfeitures are now by law recoverable.
THE 'KENTUCKY BOY" will lecture on temper
ance and the war in this city, under the aus
pices of Advance Lodge I. 0. of Good Tern
pia's, on Thursday evening, the 24th inst.
Due notice will be given of the place of
delivery. The "Boy" is represented as a gifted
orator, and will no doubt attract a large audi
ence. Temperance should not be neglected by
those at home, on account of the intense in
terest every one feels in the success of the war
for the Union. The cause is as good as ever,
and the agitation of temperance questions as
important, and we have no right to throw off
the responsibility of helping the work along
because there are more urgent questions. Our
armies are deciding the great questions of the
day, and let us at the same time he doing a 1
good work in destroying the power of intem
perance. Nothing ever succeeds without stren
uous efforts; and if the temperance cause does
not in the end prevail, it will be because of
want of interest or earnestness in those who
are for the cause in their hearts, but will not
for fear of popularity or other selfish considera
tions, expose it openly.
ADJOURNED MEETING or COMMON COUNI3IL.—
An adjourned meeting of the Common Council
was held in the Council Chamber, County Court
House, last Friday evening.
A petition was presented from citizens of the
Fifth and Sixth wards, praying for the exten

berland to Ridge avenue ; also, from Third

the Third district, asking for a more extended
system of sewerage.
The ordinance relative to the constables of
the several wards wearing badges labeled "Po
lice," was taken up and passed.
The Committee on Appropriations reported
an ordinance ; which was passed.
Mr. Shoemaker offered a resolution to the ef

city should present the same to the respective
committees three days previous to each stated
meeting. Agreed to.
A resolution was passed ordering the pur

THE JEWISH Pessovna. 7 To-day being the
14th of April, the gre:Lt Jewish festival of the
Passover commences, and will last eight days,
during which time the faithful will eat unleav
ened bread, and on the two first and two last
days abstain from all labor, and confine their
food within certain limits. Formerly the He
brews eat at these perlids of the Paschal lamb,
a male, yenned in the same year ; but at present
their diet is of fish, with a peculiar thick mus
tard, to typify the material used in making
bricks by the Israelites in Egypt, and a very
disagreeable salad of bitter herbs, representing
the bitterness of Jewish bondage at a that time.
Bich family drinks a peculiar wine made from
raisins, and, during the repast, a glass is set
apart for Elias, and the door opened in expecta

wine, shakes a drop upon the table, pronoun

of the nine plagues of Egypt. Many other
ceremonies are followed, requiring a long enu
As is well known, the feast was instituted by

ARRANGRURNTS FOR TIM WOIINDRD.-It is ex
pected that a large number of Pennsylvania
troops will participate in the coming battle at
Yorktown, Va., and extensive arrangements
are being made by the State authorities for the
accommodation of the wounded. Immediately
upon the notification of a battle, Surgeon Gen
eral Smith, with his corps of extra surgeons,
and medical stores, will proceed to Fortress
Monroe, ready to render aid and assistance, and
remove the wounded to vessels, by which they
will be conveyed to Baltimore, and thence by
rail to Philadelphia and other points in the in

TUN GALLANT DBAD.—The editor of the Smoky
Rill and Republican Union, of Junction, Davis
co , Kansas, thus alludes to the death of the
late Col Wm. G. Murray, of the 84th Pennsyl
vania regiment :
Another noble spirit has been offered up on
the altar of our country to the God who gave
it. Sunday's mail brought to us the news of
the victory at Winchester,
Va.,but its effect
was blighted, and our heart sadened, by the
sorrowful tidings of the death of William G.
Murray, colonel of the 84th Pennsylvania re
giment. He was killed while leading his men
in a gallant charge on the rebel front. We
knew him well—too good a man to be the
Victim of the hell-hounds seeking the overthrow
of our country—a fitting companion for the
hallowed spirits that have preceded him on
the way to immortal glory.
Ray. Leacooit, of the Episcopal parish,
preached hie third anniversary sermon on Sun
day morning. He has now occupied the Epis
copal pulpit in this city for three years, during
which time he has accomplished much for the
cause of religion. In his position as pastor of
one of our most respectable and intelligent
congregations he has been indefatigable in his
labors not only for the spread of the Gospel,
but has given much aid to the development of
education through the Sunday School. From
statements made on the occasion of this ser
mon, we were pleased to learn that the Episco
pal:parish is in a most flentishing condition,land
that it enters on another year with every pros
pect of being influential in accomplishing still
RAI.LILOAD INTIILLICIENCTZ. —Arrangements are
in progress for the opening of a new railroad
lino to Sunbury and Williamsport, via Schuyl
kill Haven, Ashland and Shamokin. This
route diverged from the Reading railroad at
Schuylkill Haven, and crosses the mountains
by inclined planes.
The Philadelphia and Erie railroad, since the
time it was leased by the Pennsylvania Central
company, has been rapidly pushed forward to
completion. Gangs of men are at work at both
ends, but there is no probability that the cars
will be running between this city and the lakes
before January, 1863.
The Schuylkill and Susquehanna railroad,
from Harrisburg to Auburn, after having passel
through a series of financial mishaps, and been
in the bands of numerous parties, is now run
by the Reading railroad company. •
The Mount Carbon railroad is now undergo
ing repairs, preparatory to running locomotives
to and from the mines. The road has been
under the control of the Philadelphia and
Reaatna r...itroad company since the first in
Tau snow is fast disappearing, and with it, it
is reasonable to hope that winter has left us.—
The birds, who were quite taken aback by the
s udden change in their prospecte, will no doubt
express their delight at the favorable symptoms
by awakening us with cheerful songs. The
robins were decidedly "taken down" by the
storm, end seemed to consider the warm
weather which had tempted. them to immigrate
as a decided "sell ;" but they were plentifully
supplied with the needful provisions by -the
kind-hearted folks, who love the music of the
feathered songsters, and they are now rejoicing
in the fine weather. The lees hardy of the
race, whom unavoidable circumstances have
alone coerced into remaining in Seaside, will
soon move their quarters hither, and we shall
have spring in earnest. What a beautiful sea
son spring is, and what a pity it brings with it
that dangerous though not painful disease,
"spring fever," to which so many of us will
fall victims. Let us not exult too much in the
prospects, however, lest May should set our
calculations afloat on Salt River with a still
deeper fall of snow. Well, we will be better
satisfied with hoping for the best, even if it
does not come, so we will continue to expect
that the gentle reign of spring has commenced
with the melting of the snow.
Tas Comeau Dam—We have already allu
ded to several public demonstrations made by
the citizens of York, Lancaster and Dauphin
counties for the removal or alienation of the
dam in the Susquehanna river at Columbia, in
order to permit the free passage of fish. The
following is a copy of one of several petitions
on the subject, numerously signed, presented to
the House of Representatives just previous to
the adjournment of the Legislature:
26 the Honorable the senate and House of Repreeenta-
We, the undersigned petitioners, long feeling
the lose that we have sustained by the construc
tion of dame in the Susquehanna river, and
being satisfied that this great evil can be reme
died, and that it would be a great benefit to the
people of this Valley, by so altering said dams
as to permit the free passage of fish, and in
particular the dam at Columbia, which is the
If the people along the Atlantic sea board
are worthy of being protected by acts of Con
gress in the protection of the Atlantic fisheries,
are not the tax payers of the great Susquehanna
equally worthy of protection in the same rights?
We are. There are thousands of people on both
sides of thiS river, for a distance of twenty
miles on each side, that would be more or less
benefitted—there are thousands of poor people
that would be directly benefitted by the altera
tion of said dams, and would restore valuable
fisheries that have been thus destroyed, and re
store the great benefits which the people formerly
had, by fishing in various ways ; in reality it
would be a luxury to the rich man and a living
to the poor.
Believing that your honorable bodies will not
overlook the great interest of at least a half
million of people, living in this valley, we
therefore pray that your honorable bodies will
pass a law imposing a heavy penalty on the said
Susquehanna Canal Company, for not comply
ing with the law passed by the Legislature in
the year eighteen hundred and fifty-one, requir
ing said company to so alter the dam at
Columbia as to permit the passage of fish.
And your petitioners will ever pray, &a.

A PHILADELPHIAN AT PITTSBURG LANDING
Among the prisoners taken by the rebels at the
late battle of Pittsburg Landing, was Capt. Wm.
McMichael, a son of Morton McMichael, Esq.,
of Philadelphia. Captain McMichael joined the
Commonwealth Artillery as a private, at the
breaking out of the war, with the hope of going
immediately to the relief of Washington, and in
the frequent discussions of that company at the
time, was highly indignant at the delay im
posed upon his darling object. When, instead
of the life of exhilarating action hoped fur by
that band of noble youths, it was found that
three months at Fort Delaware was to be their
destiny, no one was more bitterly disappointed
than young M.'Michael, and he took the first
opportunity afforded to obtain a discharge from
that station, and a position on the staff of Gov.
Curtin. He was afterwards volunteer aid to
Col. Biddle, when a portion of the Pennsylvania
Reserves were despatched to the relief of Cum
berland. In August last he was appointed As
sistant Adjutant General, and proceeded at once
to St. Louis, where he remained until the ex
pedition under Major General Charles F. Smith
departed, when he was assigned to that com
mand as Assistant Adjutant General and Chief
of Staff, which was the position he held at the
time of his capture. The nerve, spirit and
physical strength of Capt. McMichael admirably
qualified him for a soldier betore he entered the
profession. To these he has added talent, as hie
responsible rank, after a short term of service,
proves. It is to be hoped that his captivity
will be short.
A trutonoitaas have lately been astonished by
the complete disappearance of the large nebula)
discovered by Mr. Herd in 1852, in one of the
northern constellations. M. Leverrier is the
discoverer of the change, which is certainly a
moat startling one, for if these nebula; are not
stars, all the astronomers have been playing
with a false theory, and if they are stars and
such a change as this has taken place, the fact
would indicate that a radical change is begin
ning in the heavens, which may herald the
clash of all the heavenly bodies together.
