stated that the tariff and tax bills have already
caused a material anvance in the prices of
tobacco and cigaiip among the wholesale dealers

sixty cents, and some trands of cigars have
advanced from three dollars to five dollars per
DECORATIONS.-The individuals who have
charge of the hall of the House of Representa
tives, imbued with a commendable spirit of
patriotism, as well as good taste, have relieved
the sombre appearance which that chamber
usually wears during the recess, by decorating
various parts of the Speaker's platform with
red, white and blue colored gauze and silk rib
bons, ti gether with a number of small Ameri
can flags, the whole forming a very pretty com
bination, and adding much to the appearance
of things generally.
&TRIAL MEETING or THE CITY COUNCIL.— Vdo
Menage of the Mayon—The City Council held a
meeting last night to consider a message from
the Mayor, returning to that body, with his a
jections, an " Ordinance in relation to public
Sewers." The ground taken by the Mayor in
his objections is, that the passage of the afore
said ordinance will add additional expenses to
the government of the city. The Council, how
ever, seemed to take a different view of the
matter, and passed the ordinance notwith
standing the veto, The ordinance will be found
in the advertising columns of this evening's

this city to-morrow night, with a sterling

Harry Lehr, formerly of Kunkle's Serenaders,
whose ludicrous style of - acting needs only to
be seen to be appreciated. Besides Hairy,
there are a number of other first class perform
ers, mostly new faces, who shine in the upper
gallaxy of ethiopion stars. These attractions,
with the full brass band, will create a sensation,
and make things lively at the Opera House to
Otra Stoic AND Wotan:no Bowtres.— An in
telligent cotemporary makes a suggestion in
reference to a mode of raising a collection in
aid of our sk and wounded soldiers, which
strikes us as feasible, and worthy of trial In
this city. It suggests that boxes .be placed at
the P. at Offices, Hotels,Saloons and other places
about wen, into which contributions be de
posited, to Iv given to a committee of ladies
and genth men for the purchase of such arti
cles as they think will be needed the most by
our soldiers. If any one can think of a better
plan to raise money we should be pleased to
hear from them. Let us do something on In
dependence Day, to let them know that, al
though on that day we rejoiced, we were not
unmindful of the brave men who languish in
our hospitals. Harrisburg has already done
much for the soldiers. Let us continue in the

the grain crops will be immense. Wheat never
looked better, at this season, and the corn in
the ground certainly never. presented a more
promising appearance than at .present ; there
are promises of an excellent harvest through
out the North and West, and the yield will be
as abundant as that of last year, if storms and
drouths do not interpose. From the Gulf
States we learn that the`wheat fields are pretty
generally blighted. This appears to be the case
in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi,
and the probability is that the Cotton States,
So far from having abundant crops of grain this
year, are likely enough to be ravaged by a fam
ine, more or less severe, according to the prox
imity of places to the rebel camps. As the
Border States will hardly be able to supply
their own wants, an immense demand for pro
duce from the Northwest must spring up every
where in the South, as the tide of war recedes
towards the Gulf.
AFFAIRS AT THB "UPPER END: —OIU country
Cousins at the upper end of this county expect
to have a lively time on the approaching Anni

demonstration is to come off at Gratztown, and

THAT "Conrasmon."—Our readers will recol
lect the "contraband," who was confined with
the rebel prisoners at Camp Curtin near this
city last week. It seems that his former was
ter was among the additional squad of prison
ers that arrived here last Wednesday, and
that when the cars which conveyed the rebels
to Philadelphia en route to Fort Delaware, ar
rived at Washington street, in that city, the
"contraband" proceded to whip him in
true artistic style. He gave as a reason that
his master had been flogging him for ten years
and that now it was his turn. He was allowed
to have his own way till the owner was well
nigh exhausted when he was removed and left
with some companions of his own color, while
the coward Tiger was shipped for Fort Dela-
ware. We learned, also, that an indignant
female offered to thrash any one of the prison
ers who desired it at her hands in revenge for
the death of her son.
EXTRAORDINARY AND PAINFUL MISTAKB.—The
night of the 3d of June, says the Lewistown
Thus Democrat, will be remembered as having
been pitch dark, with rain Selling in torrents.
That night the Express train east brought Mrs.
Vaoormer and daughter, (the latter an invalid
aged about eighteen years,) on their way from
one of the western counties to visit friends in
Juniata county. When the train stopped at
Lewistown station, about midnight, Mrs. V.
inquired of the conductor how soon she would
reach Patterson, as she &sired to stop at that
point. The reply was, " The next time the
cars stop will be at Patterson, and as we are
behind time I would like you to get out as
quickly as possible, after :hey stop. I will at
tend to your baggage, madam." On the train
sped, but when only five miles below this
place, in the very depth of the long Narrows,
the whistle sounded and the train stopped.
Mrs. V. and daughter, agreeable to directions,
got off "as quickly as possible," and had
bcarcely done so, when they, as well ae a pas
senger who had kindly assisted them out, die,
covered that this was not Patterson ; but the
discovery was too late, for in another second
the train was off. Few can imagine, and it
were impossible to describe, the feelings of the
two ladies at this juncture. Mrs. V. knew she
was in the middle of the Long Narrows.—
Throw all the darkness and rain she could see
the river below her on one side, the steep and
cragged mountain on the other, and nothing
but a double track railroad under her feet—not
even room enough on either side to avoid a
train if one should come along. The
daughter, an invalid, screamed with terror,
and was with difficulty pacified by the
mother. After vainly trying to find a shelter,
it was determined to walk to Patterson, though
neither party knew how far off that place might
be. At this moment a light was discovered,
and believing it to be the front of an approach
ing train, new fears burst upon the already
horror stricken ladies. Another effort was
made to get outside the track, but no room
was found upon either side. It was then de
termined, as the only alternative, not knowing
upon which of the tracks the train might come,
to stand as nearly as possible between the two.
But fortunately no train come ; but instead the
light proved to be in the hands of a watchman.
The ladies called, and he came. The nearest
house was two miles off—that of Robert Shaw,
three miles below this place. After an exhaust
ing walk along the railroad, this house was
reached, and the ladies there received every at
tendon that kindness could dictate. Next day
they were taken to Patterson, and thence they
reached their destination in safety, but they
will never forget the fearful adventures of the
night of the 3d of Jane.
Whether anybody is to blame in this affair,
we are not prepared to say. The conductor
when he advised Mrs. V. to get out " the next
time the train -stops," of course had no idea
that he would be obliged to stop ,this side of
Patterson, and when be did stop, the thought
that the ladies might get out in such a place
probably did not once occur to him. But why
the gentleman who assisted the ladies off, and
knew they had made a miatake, did not imme
diately inform the conductor of the fact, is a
mystery to us.

A Slur VELVET HANOVAOTORT IN CHESTER CO.
—Few of our citizens are aware, says the Record,
that we have had in Chester county, an estab
lishment at which the finest silk velvet is man
ufactured, of every style and pattern. A spe
cimen of the goods was exhibited at the Horti
cultural Exhibition in West Chester last week.
They rival the best imported articles, and are
made at prices which command the market.—
The factory is on the Valley Creek, four or five
miles north-west of West Chester, known as
"Baldwin's Factory." Mr. John Brooke is the
propaletor. He sells his goods in New York,
where we have no doubt they are resold to
. thence to Chester county.—
Mr Brooke is a practical workman, And has es
tablished among us one of the best velvet foto
ries in America.
Somz memos things will be elicited by the
present rebellion. The Indiana Arnerieen says
that one day last week, the pat'ents and friends
of a young man in East Wheatfield township,
Indiana county, were startled at the reception
f a letter from a eon who had been absent for
some four years and upwards, during which
time the parents had entirely lost sight of the
whereabouts of their son, and did not know
whether he was living. The letter, however,
gave the information of his whereabouts. He
was then lying in Harrisburg, a prisoner, cap
tured by Gen. Fremont's men in Virginia. He
says he enlisted in a Louisiana regiment, to
avoid being drafted, and wishes his friends to
secure his discharge. He also says that with
him are quite a number of young meo who
have went from the north and are now in a
similar situation. He is the son of Patrick
DISINIWTLINGAGENTS.--AS the warm weath
er approaches, our citizens should thoroughly
cleanse their premises, rendering them as pure
and healthy as possible. There are a number
of disenfectling agents which will be found effi
cacious in removing offensive smells from the
damp, mould cellars, yards, pools of stagnant
water, deeaying vegetable matter, etc. Either
of the following will answer the purpose,
while they cost but a trifle.
1. One pint of the liquor of chloride of zinc,
in one pailful of water and one pound of chlo
ride of lime in another. pailful of water. This
is, perhaps, the most effective of anything that
can be used, and when thrown upon decaying
vegetable matter of any description, will arse
tually destroy all offensive odors. 2. Thr4r
four pounds of sulphate of iron, (copperas)
.dissolved in a pailful of water, will in many
cases be sufficient to remove all offensive odors.
S. Chloride of lime is better to soitter about
places, in yards, in damp cellars, and upon
heaps of filth.
A Mongr, Eararnasnmezr.—Among the many
improvements latel3f made in our city, to which
we can point with pride as an evidence of prii's
perity and as a determination on the part of
our business men, no longer . to remain behind
the " light house," is the completion of Eby
& Kunkle's large
,brick building at the corner
of Market and Fifth streets, which is alike
creditable to the owners and ornamental to that
part of our city.
The building is not only one of the largest,
devoted to the grocery businetis, outside of New
York, but the stock ch Menges competion.—
Without going into detail, we may safely say
that the firm keep on hand everything usually
kept in a grocery store, (110 ors excepted,) and
that they sell at very small profits. Their
clerks are civil and accommodating, and have
strict instructions under no circumstances what
ever to misrepresent or take advantage of any
customer. A general invitation is extended to
the public to visit the new building and exam
ine the extensive stock, whether they purchase
