Tai VACANCY in the Central Railroad of New
Jersey, caused by the death of their superin
tendent, John D. Sterns, has been filled by the
appointment of Josiah 0. Sterns, formerly
assistant superintendent. This is now a very
popular route from New York to Washington.
Passengers pass over this road to this city, and
hence over the Northern Central to Baltimore
and Washington. It is a short, pleasant and
safe route to travel, avoiding the inconveni
ence of rushing to the southern depot at Phila
delphia, as well as getting clear of the risks of
crossing the Susquehanna at Havre de Grace.
Eastern tr..velers for the Federal Capital are
beginning to appreciate this route. What adds
to its popularity, too, is the courtesy of its con
ductors, among whom stands prominent for
care and attention, our friend Capt. Hill.
Own Prism Scnoors.—The Soldier's Hospitals.
When the government had need of hospital ac
commodations, the directors of the public
sohoolt in this city, promptly tendered the use
of the different school houses. This tender was
made with no intention that the schools should
be permanently used as hospitals. The idea
was merely the temporary accommodation of
the Surgeon General, until the authorities
could provide other and more fitting quarters
for the wounded soldiers. And in order that
Phis accommodation could be afforded the Sur
geon General, the pupils usually attending the
public schools, were crowded into comfortless
and contracted rooms, where they were subject.
ed to all sorts of inconvenience and annoyance,
alike impeding the progress of education and
imperilling the condition of their health. One
of our best physicians has made it a point to
urge this matter on our attention, t• at we might
by noticing the fact, remind the authorities of
the necessity of either providing better school
accommodations for the boys and girls of the
city, or they will find that most of the chambers
of our homes will be converted into hospitals
for domestic use. Children crowded into close
rooms, that cannot be ventilated without pro
viding sudden chills, must be necessarily sub
jected to the danger of sickness. Without pre
tending to interfere with the duties of the Sur
geon General, we think that time has been
afforded to make all the necessary arrangements
for the accommodation of the wounded soldiers
in other buildings than the public schools.
And if the pupils of the public schools are to
be crowded into the inconvenient rooms which
they now mostly occupy, during the winter,
sickness cannot fail to be the result. Will the
authorities look after this business before it is

An &MOM AMONG TUN BAUM. --The epi
demic now raging among all classes of trades
people to raise the price of the commodities in
which they deal, has extended to some of the
barbers in the city.. Six cents has been from
time immemorial the general charge for the
luxury of a clean shave, except at some of the
more aristocratic establishments, where from
four to six cents extra is exacted from custom
ers for the privilege of using large mirrors and
washing in a white marble basin. The mirror
establishments have now commenced to raise
the tariff to ten cents per shave. As the out
lay in shaving a customer has not been increas
ed, no reasonable ground exists why the bar
bers should charge more than usual, beyond
the fact that they have caught the prevailing
infection on the part of everybody to charge
the utmost for everything.
TRIAL 01 THE FIFTIES INCH GIIN.-A trial was
made at the Washington Navy Yard, on Satur
day evening, of one of the 16-inch Dablgreen
guns made at the Fort Pitt Works in Pittsburg,
and which some of our readers will remember
to have seen described in the local columns of
the TESIGRAPIi, as they passed through this city
on their way to Washington. An iron target,
nine inches in thickness, was placed at a dis
tance of five hundred yards, and a nearly solid
shot fired. The ball made an indentation, but
did not penetrate. It was, however, shattered,
and the fragments Abounded and fell among
the persons in the yard. If the shot had been
perfectly solid there is little doubt it would
have penetrated the target with ease. The new
Monitor, Passaic made another trial of her fif-
teen-inch gun. A skillful gunner might throw
a shell into a porthole large enough for these
guns; therefore the porthole was fitted for fir-
big through without protuding the gun, being
little larger then the ball. The fiist fire was
as much as the crew cared to risk in that ex
pet iment. The smoke and flame filled the tur
ret. Then a flange was fitted to the murele of
the gun and the curve of the turret to incluse
the space. The last trial was of this contriv
ance. Thirty-five pounds of powder and a hol
low shot were used. The concussion lifted the
perforated shield plates on the top of the turret,
one of which fell on Captain Worden's foot.—
The volume of flame from the muzzle set the
tackle for hoisting the shot on fire, burned the
eye-brows and hair of one of the gun crew, and
the force of gas tore off the flange. It was found
also, that although the extra flange might fit
the inside curve of the turret, the gun must re
coil before the charge left it. It was rather
queer that ordnance officers should have to ex
periment to find that out. The result proved
that the porthole must be enlarged so as to let
the muzzle of the gun protrude, or some sliding
arrangement like the joints of a telescope must
be contrived to keep up the connection with the
porthole while the gun recoils.
A Goon Hrr.—The scarcity of change, while
it produces hard feeling and elicits harsh lan
guage, occasionally develops good humor and
hes the influence of 'dealing good hits at the
present condition of the currency. Thus In an
oyster cellar the other evening, after one of the
..tests bad regaled himself with the sumptuous
fare of mine host, he complacently tendered in
payment a printed slip of paper, purporting to
represent in value "60 cents." The keeper
of the restaurant cooly received the note, de
posited it in his till, and then tearing the cor- 1
ner from the immaculately white apron which
he wore, threw down the piece of muslin to his
customer, politely turning to wait on another.
The man who had given the "50 cents" in
payment for what he had eaten, regarding this
proceeding with unfeigned surprise, asked for
"You gave me a piece of printed paper,"
said mine host, "which purported to be worth
'5O cents.' It bears the name of a firm of which
I have no knowledge. It may be a fraud for
what I really know. Therefore I consider it of
no more value than a portion of my white apron,
which I give you in change. I will redeem the
corner of my apron for the full value of the
change which is your due, when_ you present
it to me in payment of the articles of food
I vend. The men who issued that note will
only redeem it in their store goods. That
is all I could do with your note. My rags
are just as good as the paper you gave me—
land I can offer you no better change for the
bill you present in payment of my oysters than
the corner of my apron." The oyesterman was
I right—and yet he suffered himself to be im
posed upon by at length receiving the "50
cents" and giving his customer postage cur
reocy in change.
Araumanoris IN TIMM= BILIS .-If Treasury
notes are really altered, and fifties and hundreds
are made from ones and twos, persons handling
them may find profit in remembering the points
of distinction. The ones and hundreds are so
totally dissimilar in the main features that,
whatever skill or ingenuity may be brought to
bear by this process of raising or changing the
larger figures that indicate the value of the
note, no change is likely in the most skilful ar
tistic portions. The portrait of Secretary;Chase,
in an oval frame, in the extreme left hand up.
per corner of the one dollar note, is its distinct,
exclusive characteristic. In the one hundred
dollar note, occupying a like position on the
upper left corner, the prominent device is; the
figure of a single eagle, without spread wings.
These distinctions can be easily remembered.
Between the twos and fifties there are points of
resemblance, especially as the portrait of the
first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Ham
ilton, is common to both denominations, and is
the only prominent pictorial device upon either.
IA glance at the position of this portrait upon
the two dollar note shows that the oval frame
of the picture rests upon the extreme lower
edge of the note, the main title, "The United
States," being above the picture ; whereas, in
the fifty the portrait is placed in the upper part
of the note, nearly at the top, while the words
of the main title are separated by it ; the word
" United" is upon the left, and " States" upon
the right of the portrait. • The difference itithe
backs of the twos and fifties is so marked that,
observation of that of the two, with its two' ec
centric rings malts two broad bands of geo
metric engraving, would be readily remembered
as an exclusive feature, as totally unlike that of
the fifty, or any other note issued by the gov

CHAPLAINS. —We make no q.pclogy for allud
ing to these important officers. Every hospital
chaplain ought to know the spiritual condition
of every patient who has been a week or more
under his care. If we can but impress this
idea upon those in the sacred calling, we shall
feel amply rewarded for our effort. The Wash
ington Republic relates an incident in connection
with the neglect of duty by most of the chap
lains in the army and the hospitals, Nshich is
worth reproducing in the local columns of the
TuatottAPH. It is to this effect :
A pious mother in New York, amid prayers
and tears, sent forth her darling boy to battle
for his country. In the second battle of Bull
Bun that boy received his death-wound. He
was sent to one of our hospitals, where he lay
lingering for a long time, with strong hopes of
recovery. But the fond mother at last received
the sad intelligence that her boy was dying.
She hastened from her distant hornet° his side,
only to find that the dear boy breathed his
last. Friends tendered their sympathies, but,
alas ! who can comfort in such an hour of deso
lation ? She visited the chaplain, anxious to
learn the spiritual condition of her son, and
what were his last words. But, to her bitter
disappointment, she looked in vain for this con
solation. The chaplain knew nothing a. out
him, save that he was a sick soldier under his
charge. He performed the service over the dead
body, for which the Christian mother felt
grateful. She took leave of him, but before
doing so discharged a duty toward the chaplain.
He expressed regret that he did not know more
of her son. She expressed her sorrow at the
omission. " Good-bye, sir," said she, ' and I
hope this event will serve as a warniug. Let
this sad scene remind you of the solemn duty
which belongs to your office—V:at of learning
the spiritual condition of your patients, and
pointing the way to Heaven."

This battle (Antietam) has been the most
sanguinary of the war, and the only: one
fought with visible design and upon military
principles. The arrangement of our corps—
the overlooking position of the commanding
General—the sending into action of the right
and the left division—the closing up of the
centre, and final success—excites bewildering
admiration, and carries the mind to the great
fields of Austerlitz and Wagram, fought by
Na oleon. Of all this have I spoken. The
heart history of such a conflict, purchased by
he life and blood of twenty th usand men,
must be fogad in - the hospitals'. War has its
glories—lint it has its ten thousand demons
in these human tortures, that make the eye
balls ache—the heart bleed—the lips palsy,
and the brain reel. The - sight is at first posi
tively unendurable. The life-blOOd of some
is still trickling away in silent calmness—

others give rise to sounds God grant I may not

is bestowed upon your loved ones than might

where rested the gallant Hooker, that I learn

OMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA,
ANDREW G. CURTIN,
ERNOR OP THE, SAID COMAIONWRALTII,
Wu - gazes, It is a good thing to reader thanks
unto God for all His mercy and loving kind
Therefore, I, AaDasw G. CURTIN, Governor
of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, do re
commend that THURSDAY, THE 27th DAY OF
NOVEMBER NEXT, be set apart by the people
of thisCommonweulth, as a day of solemn Prayer
and Thanksgiving to the Almighty :—Giving
Him humble thanks that He has been gracious
ly pleased to protect our free institutions and
Government, and to keep us from sickness and
pestilence—and to cause the earth to bring
forth her increase, so that i.ur earners are
choked with the harvest—and to look so favor
ably on the toil o . His children, that, industry
has thriven among us and labor had its reward;
and ids() that H., has delivered us from the
hands of our enemies--and filled our 'Officers
and men in the field with a loyal and"intreitid
spirit, and Avert them victory—and that He
has poured out upon us (albeit unworthy) other
great and manifold hlessins :
Beseeching Him to help and govern utin His
.steadfast 'tear and love, and to put into our
minds good desires, so that by His continual
help we may have a right judgment in all
And especially praying Him to give to Ceria
tian churches graze to hate the thing which is
evil, and to utter the teachings of truth and
righteousness, declaring openly the • whole
counsel of God :
And most heartily entreating Him to bestow
upon our civil rulers, wisdom and earnestness
in council, and upon our military leaders, zeal
and vigor in action, that the fires of rebellion
may be quenched—that we, being armed with
His defence, may be preserved from all perils,
and that hereafter our people, living in peace
and quietness, may, from generation to genera
tion, reap the abundant fruits of His mercy,
and with joy and thankfulness praise and mag
nify His holy name.
Given under my hand and the great seal of the
State, at Harrisburg, this Twentieth day of
October, in the year of our Lord one thousand
eight hundred and sixty-two, and of the
Commonwealth the eighty-seventh.
A. G. CURTIN.
