DIED AT NEWBERN, N. C. — Lewis H., son of
Abraham Coble, residing at White Hill, Cum
berland county, died a few days since in the
Hospital at Newbern, N. C. He was a private
in the 23d Massachusetts regiment, and his
body is expected here to-night by Hope's
Express from New York.
BEEAK nt THE CANAL.—On Friday night last
about fifty feet of the embankment, between
the canal and the Juniata river, near Mifflin,,
a short distance below Cuba bridge, gave way
and was washed into the stream to a level with
the bottom of the canal. A heavy force was
immediately set to work on Saturday morning,
and by evening the boats were running as
CONDENSED MILK.—The Soldiers' Aid Society
of Cleveland have published the following re
ceipt for preparing condensed milk, an article
higldy needed for use in the hospitals. Take
new milk warm from the cow, strain it. To
each quart add a pound of fine white sugar ;
pour the sugar in gradually, stirring it all the
time; let it simmer slowly until it is like a
thick, rupy syrup. Let it cool. When perfectly
cool sval it up in cans. Care should be taken
to prevent the milk from burning.
LIEUT. OBER, the "war correspondent" of the
Lancaster Express, who was lying dangerously
ill in the hospital at Nashville, a few weeks
since, has returned to Lancaster, where he will
remain until he recovers hil health and vigor.
BEN is a facile and a graphic writer, an adven
turous and daring soldier, for whom the craft
and the army have a great regard; and whom
we would not like to see "locked up and worked
off" until he has tasted more of life's sweet
ness. He has our paayers for his convalee
NEW BREECH-LOADING Gm—A new breech
loading six-pounder passed through the city
lately en route for Washington. The inventor,
C. Thieme, of Cincinnati, claims that it can be
fired a thousand shots at the rate of ten shots
per minute, without heating the breech, and
he gives reasons for this opinion. The gun has
been fired at the rate of fifteen shots per min
ute. It is a smooth bore, and would be a
tremendous distributor of cannister shot on a
battle field. The breech is very large, and the
gun, though of the bore of a six-pound, is
heavy as a twelve.
SPRING, sweet, glad, light spring, is almost a
misnomer in this locality—a something to be
talked of, to be dreamed abopt, to be looked aE
away back in the days of childhood, when we
wandered o'er our native hills„ but hardly ever
realizod here. The weather to-day and yesterday
was decidedly cold, dreary,rainy and tempestu
ous. To be sure, we are occasionally treated to
the music of the birds, but they have precious
little of the balminess of spring. This lack is,
however, made up to them in the unsurpassed
pleasantness of the summer, which they all
heartily enjoy, and, we hope, duly appreciate.
CAUTION.—Ihe Wilmington Republican says
that many fruit trees brought to that city are
not true to the label, and others having missed
the bud or graft last spring, are entirely worth
less. The evergreens in many cases, have lost
their vitality, and those who bny are swindled
or grossly cheated. The Republican recommends
that people should purchase of men who are per
manently fixed and feel the necessity of preser
ving a good name and reputation. These re
marks apply as well to trees which are brought
from a distance to Harrisburg. With a good
nursery, that of Mr. J. Mish, below the city,
there is no need of going abroad for supplying
an orchard. In this connection we might state
that Mr. Mish will again offer at public sale in
the lower market house, at Si o'clock next
Wednesday morning, another large lot of fruit,
shade and ornamental trees, grape vines,
shrubbery, &c. His stock is large, and brought
directly from the soil, so that citizens purchas
ing from him may be certain of getting a genu
RTTA ED A REBEL.-A private letter from
Edisto Island, S. C., speaks very highly of the
bravery and good fighting qualities of Samuel
L. Willis of this city, and now a private in Captain
Waterbury's company. Some time since he
was sent out in charge of a squad of three men
to see what had become of a picket guard of
his company, when he suddenly came upon a
body of rebels, who fired at the squad, but
fortunately without effect. Willis and his men
immediately returned the fire,when a ball from
the musket of the former, penetrated the brain
of one of the attacking party, and instantly
sent him to kingdom come. This was the first
rebel killed on Edisto Island. The letter adds
that "Willis is held in high esteem by Colonel
White as one of the bravest men in his regi
ment, fearing nothing and doing his duty
manfully." We are certainly glad to hear this
good report of Mr. Willis, and hope to hear
more of the same sort. The "bars" are waiting
Alvan:Emus AFFAIR—The Bones of a human Leg
found.—At an early hour last Saturday morn
ing the bones and sinews of a human leg and
foot were found on the bank of the river oppo
site Walnut street. The discovery created
quite a sensation in that usually quiet neigh
borhood, and various were the surmises among
the crowd as to how they got there. Some let
.their imagination run so far as to believe that
a horrible murder had been committed, while
others supposed that they had been exhumed
from a graveyard by some canine ghowl, who
had taken them where they were found t o
enjoy a quiet feast. The most plausible ex
planation of the mystery, however, was that
they formed part of the remains of a human
body that bad been subjected to the dissecting
knife of some physician for the edification of
his students, and then buried on the bank
of the river, from which they were subsequent
ly unearthed by the dogs, which lead to
their discovery. After laying exposed for a few
hours, the bones were carefully re-buried.
ARREST OF s TEMP. Last Saturday after
noon officer Cole, of this city, proceed-•d
to Columbia, Pa., to arrest a colored man
named Stephen Ward, charged with the rob
bery of an awning, a large quantity of coffee and
various other articles from the store of Wm.
Dock, jr., & Co., Market street, in which he
was formerly employed as a porter. The offi
cer, however, did not succeed in making the
arrest, and returned to this city. A few hours
afterwards a telegraphic dispatch was received
from a constable in Columbia, giving informa
tiou that Ward had paned through that bo.ough
from Wrightsville, and had taken passage on
the "tub line" of cars that would arrive in this
city at 8 o'clock B. it. Accordingly, a short
time previous to the hour indicated, officers Cole
and Fleck pr needed to the depot, and upon
the arrival of the train took Ward into custody,
and marched him off to Alderman Kline, who
in default of bail committed him to prison to
The same night officers Cole and Fleck pro
ceeded to an "old ties" shop, kept by a Ger
man Jew named Rudolph Feltman, in Walnut
street, near Shed, where they found the awn
ing, a large piantity of coffee, and other ar
ticles, which were identified by Messrs. Duck
& Co. as their property. Upon this discovery
a warrant was procured and Feltman arrested
and confined in prison, on a charge of receiving
stolen goods. A subsequent search of Felt
man's shop and residence this morning led to
the discovery of an additional large quantity
of goods, consisting of bags of coffee, boxes of
washing soap, &0., all of which were also iden
tified by Messrs. Dock & Co. as their property.
During the search through the shop the
officers discovered entire bales of large double
blankets and other property belonging to the
Government, which Feltman had purchased at
various times from the soldiers for a mere trifle.
These, of course, will be looked atter by the
From all accounts, Feltman appears to have
I done a thriving business in the "receiving"
line, and the officers deserve great credit for
thus suddenly terminating his career. He is
said to hail from Philadelphia, and if report be
true, is not a novice in this illegal trade.
The thief, Ward, has been in the employ of
Messrs. Dock & Co., as porter, for a considerable
time, and he was liked for his intelli
gence, quickness and disposition at all times to
make himself general:) , useful. He has evi
dently been carrying on his thieving operations
for some time, and to what extent is only
known to himself. In accounting for his pos
session of the goods to Feltman, he alleged that
they had been given to him by Maws. Dock
& Co., in payment of his wages, which of
course was not the case, as that firm not only
paid him his wages regularly, but upon their
final settlement, made him a present of three
dollars—a generosity, as we have shown, al
It is said the police have been informed of
one or two more establishments in the city
where goods have been sold by the thief Ward.
Since writing the above, we learn that officers
Cole and Fleck, acting under the orders of
Assistant Quarter Master Wilson, this after
noon proceeded to Feltman's shop, and took
charge of about five hundred dollars worth of
Government property, consisting of blankets,
shoes, overcoats and under clothing, all of
which were taken to Alderman Kline's office
to await the requisition of the proper authori
A SINGTRAB. INOIDRNT—AImost a Catastrophe.—
There is a popular superstition that a cat, if al
lowed the opportunity, will "suck the breath
of a child ;" though how this is accomplished
is not apparent. Cats are subjected to much
suspicion, and indeed, no animal petted by man'
is at once so much admired and detested. A
circumstance came to our knowledge recently
which seems to indicate that the numerous
charges made against the feline race are not
altogether unfounded. The other evening, at
a residence only a few miles from this city, a
cat was disc veered sitting upon the chest of a
little boy four years of age, her mouth placed
close to the child's lips, and the cat evidently
very much absorbed in the operation. An
effort was made to drive the eat away, by
speaking sharply to her. She paid no attention
to this and was equally unmindful of a series of
blows with a dick. The cat was finally fairly
pushed off.the body of the child and off the
bed. She was then pushed out of the room
and down the stairs. She could not be driven
in the usual way. She had a bewildered and
wild look all the time, and exhibited a sign of
ferocity by springing on the servant, who was
forcing her down stairs. The cat was instantly
killed as a warning to all cats not to be too
intimate with sleeping children. The little
boy woke up during the noise which was made,
and was naturally somewhat frightened. He
did not seem to be injured.
Though no harm was done, evil might have
ensued had not the cat been discovered and re
moved. Her weight on the child's chest would
necessarily reduce the quantity of air inspired,
and tend to cause suffocation, while the child
would inspire only carbonic acid gas, as taken
from the mouth of the cat. The two causes
might produce death even. They may have
originated the superstition that a cat " sucks
the breath of a child." The case is interesting
and novel, and may serve the purpose of elicit
ing inquiry and putting some parents on their
guard against the treacherous and stealthy pets
with which their children play.
FIRE IN JONEBTOWN.—There was a destructive
fire in Jonestown, on Friday night last. It was
discovered in Heilinan's hotel, between 12 and
1 o'clock, and was then raging so furiously that
the inmates had barely time to escape. The
flames spread to an adjoining dwelling, owned
by Lieut. Faber, and occupied by his family in
his absence in the 98d regiment. The hotel was
owned by Mr. Henry Heilman, and was not in
sured. It was occupied by Mr. Simon Heilman,
who had an insurance on his furniture. The
house of Lieut. Faber was insured in the Wash
ington Mutual Insurance Company, of Lebanon,
to the amount of $9OO. The night was very
calm, and the little fire engine owned by Jones
town did good service, or the destruction would
have been much greater.

The girl was apparently about twenty years,
had black hair, cut abort, andnotwithstanding
a alight disfiguration oocasioned by the lapse of
time she had been in the water, her features
still bore traces of former comeliness. She was
respectably dressed, her outward apparel con
sisting of a dark colored calico frock, sack, blue
stockings and gaiter boots. There was no
mark on either article of her dress, or nothing
found on her person that could lead to her
identity, and the supposition is that she was
one of that class of society so pathetically
spoken of by Hood—

From the appearance of the surface of
the skin, it was the opinion of some
gentlemen on the jury that the body had been
in the water about a week. The jury returned
a verdict of death by drowning, after which
the body was enclosed in a coffin and taken to
the poor house for interment.
PENNSYLVANIANS AT PITTSBURG LANDING--
Splendid Bayonet Charge.—lt is now known pos
itively that at least one regiment from the
old Keystone State participated at the bloody
battle of Pittsburg Lauding. The honor of
this distinct ion belongs to the 77th Pennsylva
nia, Col. Stambaugh, formerly Col. of the 2d
Pennsylvania, in the three months service, to
which the State Capitol Guard of this city was
attached. The 77th regiment was attached to
McCook's division, and played a most oonspic
uous part in the fight. The brigade left their
camp on Sunday morning, and marched twen
ty-three miles to the scene of the engage
ment, over the most horrible roads, arriving at
Savannah about nine P. rt. The battle field
was reached that night, and the men lay
down in the mud and rain until daylight, when
they joined in an attack on the enemy, which
was conducted in gallant style. Tile 77th
made a brilliant bayonet charge, and covered
itself with glory. The entire division compli
mented them for their steadiness and bravery,
and the dashing manner in which the charge
was executed. McCook's division, it is stated,
was badly cut up, but the77th, though in the
thickest of the fight, had but five killed and
ten wounded. A correspondent gives a de
scription of the sickening spectacle which the
battle field presented after the fight. Hun
dreds of bodies and the carcases of horses in
numerable lay festering in the sun, while the
air seemed blask with buzzards, attracted
thither by the stench which filled the atmos
phere for miles around.
BEAUTIFYING THE BANK ALONG THE RIVAL

Hummel, Jr., busy in having additional trees
planted, fences repaired, and improvements
made generally; and we feel safe in saying that
