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 usual. 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. I==l 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 cence. 1=12:1 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 ine article. 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 for Samuel. 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 answer. 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 proper authorities. 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 altogether misplaced. 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 ties I=l 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.

His remains were taken to the former place for interment. FOUND DROWNED. —Last Saturday afternoon, as Mr. F. G. Lawch was proceeding to his flour mill, he discovered the dead body of a female, floating in the canal a short distance above the lock, about two miles east of this city. lie im mediately procured assistance, and succeeded in bringing the body to the bank, when Justice Baader was notified of the fact, and that officer at once proceeded to hold an inquest over the remains. 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— One more unfortunate Weary of breath, Rashly importunate, Gone to her death. 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. =I 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. -,.....,..
