Tuesday Afternoon, April 15,1561.
SEVERAL OAR LOADS of "jolly tars," in the
service of Uncle Sam, passed through our city
this morning. They were a fum looking set of
fellows, and as lively as a bag of fleas.
Mason FRINK, of the 11th Regiment P. V.,
was in this city this morning, on business con
nected with the Adjutant General's office. He
reports the men of the gallant old Eleventh in
full health and discipline, and is himself look
ing well and happy.
IT Is astonishing how "toddy" promotes in
dependence. A. well-known "brisk," lying, a
day or two since, in a spiritual manner, was
advised in a friendly way to economise, as "flour
was going up." "Let it go," said old bottle
nose, "I kin git. as 'high' as flour kin any

Scrtoor. Exrrnurrorr.—The second exhibition
of the Middletown High School, came off in
Union Hall, in that borough, last evening, and
was witnessed by an unusually large and in
telligent audience. The order of exercises em
braced music by the Brumbach Brass Band,
addresses, declamations, dialogues, reading
essays and singing, in all of which the pupils
acquitted themselves in a praiseworthy man
ner; eliciting the wannest commendations of
the audience. The exhibition is to be repeated
How TO BANISH ItaTs.—A correspondent of
Gardner's Monthly says—"l tried the effect of
introducing into the entrance of their holes,
runs or hiding places, a small piece of chloride
of lime or bleaching powder, wrapped in calico,
and stuffed into the entrance holes, and thrown
loese by the spoonful into the drain from the
house. This drove them away for a twelve
month, when they returned to it. They were
again treated in the same manner, with a like
effect. The cure was most complete. I pre
sume it was the chloride of gas which did not
agree with ther olfactories."

Erna rum hiontrrao.--The alarm of fire about
one o'clock this morning was occasioned by the
burning of a two story frame house near Cum
berland street, in the Sixth ward, owned by
Mr. John Wagoner. The Good Will and Hope
fire companies. were promptly on the ground
with their apparatus, and succeeded in subdu
ing the tlames,.not however, until the building
was burned to a mere shell. The building
narrowly escaped destruction about two weeks
since, caused by the burning of an adjoining
one story and a half house, the particulars of
which were noticed in the TEREGILM H at the
time. Since then the building has been un
occupied, and although several attempts have
recently been made by incendiaries to destroy
the property, it was not until this morning
that they succeeded in their infamous designs.
The building was insured to the amount of
several hundred dollars.
Two FORMER CITIZENS OF CUMBERLAND COUNIT
ESCAPE ram REBEEDOM.—On Tuesday, Albert
Swisher, son of Mr. John Swisher, who removed
from Mechanicsburg, Cumberland county, to
Richmond county, Va., nearly three years since,
arrived here a few days ago, having left home
secretly, on account of a movement which was
in progress to force him into the rebel army—
a proceeding not altogether consistent with his
feelings. The reason that he escaped thus far
was because he held an office under the rebel
government, having been postmaster at Lyell's
Store, which office he exerted himself to pro
cure, in order that he might be exempt from
military duty. Suspicions had recently been
excited as to his loyalty to the rebel govern
meat, and measures were adopted to have him
put out of office, when the next step would
have been his impressment into the rebel army.
His brother Ira had been drafted, but was for
tunate enough to procure a substitute on the
payment of 5160 or $250. Substitutes:rile says,
are at present commanding from $5OO to $2,000
and are scarce at that. Three others escaped
with Mr. S.. one of which is Mr. George Sadler,
formerly of West Fairview, Cumberland county,
opposite our city, a brother of Mr. John Sadler,
of Mechanicsburg, and two Young men engaged
in business near Mr. Swisher. They left home l
in the night, tind spent several nights in the
woods to avoid being discovered. They started
to cross the Potomac near its mouth in a sm a ll
boat, and when five miles out were picked up
by a government vessel, and brought to Wash
Mr. Swisher represents the secession feeling
in his county as pretty strong, but that the
rebels are less tyrannical toward those suspected
of entertaining Union sentiments than their
brethren further south, on account of the close
proximity of the Union forces.
AN excited young man, to show his agility,
recently jumped from an express train while it
was going at the at the rate of sixty miles an
hour. The last seen of him, he was turning
flip-flaps at the rate of seventeen revolutions a
minute, while the air was full of dicky strings,
and fragments of cloth, boots and linen.
ANOTHER cattle disease, of most fearful char
acter, according to the Newville Valley Star,
has appeared among the cattle in that vicinity.
It commences on the side of the head and nose,
causing the animal to rub until the skin is
rubbed off and the eye is rubbed oat. Some
eight or ten hours after the disease appears, the
head commences to swell, and in two hours
thereafter the animal is dead.
A oe.ss of poisoning from eating partridges is
communicated by Dr. Parka to the Boston Medi
cal and Surgical Journal, the victim being a lady
of that city. All the family ate of the birds,
but none of the others were affected, and the
presumption is that the lady must have hap
pened to partake of some portion of one of the
birds lying very near the stomach that had
been poisoned by eating unwholesome grain,
berriee or other food. Such cases have not
been rare, though death has very seldom re
sulted, as it did not in this case.
Soma . young men talk about luck. Good
luck is to get up at six o'clock in the morning;
good luck, if you have only a shilling a week,
is to live upon elevenpence and save a penny ;
good lock is to trouble your heads with your
own business, and let your neighbors' alone;
good lack is to fulfill the commandments, and
do unto others as we wish them to do to us.—
They must not only plod, but preserve. Pence
must be taken eare of because they are seeds of
guineas. To get on in the world, they must
take care of home, awe* their own door-way
clean, try and help other people, avoid tampta
lions, and have faith in truth and God,
Tam UNION GUN.—An experimental trial of a
newly invented projectile, known as the
" Union Gun," was made yesterday afternoon
on the public grounds, east of the Capitol, be
fore his excellency, Gov. Curtin, several State
officials and a large number of citizens. The
barrel of the gun is a trifle larger than that of
the Springfield musket, and is mounted on
wheels accompanied by limber box, cats
son, etc., like an ordinary cannon. It is loaded
at the breech and can be fired twenty times a
minute, with an accuracy only equalled by the
Minnie rifle. Its estimated range is a thousand
yards, and it throws balls weighing twenty to
the pound. Altogether, it is.about one of the
most effective death-dealing instruments that
we have ever seen, and in the hands of expe
rienced marksmen would ao terrible execution
among the rebels. We understand that the
State of New York has purchased two of the
guns for each of her regiments in the army,
and that negotiations are now pending to
arm the regiments from this State in a similar

Vicious Does.—This morning a little colored
girl made complaint before the Mayor against
a woman residing in Short street, for keeping a
ferocious dog, which is in the habit of snap
ping at and biting people almost every day.
The girl exhibited a serious wound on her per
son, caused by the bite of the dog, and stated
that a number of boys and girls in the neigh
borhood had been inflicted in a similar way.
The Mayor at once directed officer Campbell to
proceed with the girl to the residence of the
owner of the dog, and inform her that unless
the brute was kept under proper restraint, it
would be dispatched, and herself subjected to a
criminal prosecution. We did. not learn the
result of the mission, but presume the, owner
of the vicious animal succumbed to the Mayor's
orders. In this connection it is suggested that
the dog law be put in force all the year round.
There has been much indignation expressed at
so many big wolfish animals being allowed to
run at large in the streets. A few cases of
hydrophobia in the rural districts, and several
instances in which children have been seriously
injured by dogs, have roused a good deal cf
feeling against the animals in certain neigh
borhoods, and an onslaught of indignant mat
rons, armed with broomsticks and mop handles,
is not an impossibility, if the city fathers refuse
to alter the ordinance. - Every dog must have
his day, and some of the mangy curs who go
snarling around the streets and mousing in the
1 market house for stray bones have already had
their day, and should be treated like the
Dutchman's poodle—"have their tails cut off
shust pehind their ears." What with the dog
