A GOOD APPOINTMENT. —Dr.Horatio G. Wor

the 107th Regiment P. V., has been appointed
and mustered in as surgeon of the 178 d Penna.
R. giment. At Centreville, South Mountain

encouragement of the troops as they entered the

with the care aii.i skill of a most able and suc
cessful Surgeon. With the experience he has
thus already had of camp life and hospital ser

A MAN KILLED. —On Saturday morning last,
between three and four o'clock, a soldier from
the Carlisle Garrison, named Raoner Conklyn,
was shut dead, iu North street, in that borough,
by a negro named Abraham Bell. Toe deceased
had been enlisted into the regular from the vol
unteer service, recently, and had been but a few
days at this post. It appears from the evidence
before the Coroner that Conklyn was in the act
of breaking open the door of Bell's house —being
in all probability drunk—and that Bell having
a loaded gun by his bed-side, fired it through
the door which had been partly forced open,
and lodged the entire charge of shot with which
the gun was loaded in the neck cf Conklyn,
severing the jnglar vein, which must have
caused his death iu a very short time. Bell was
arrested and plead in prison to await his trial.
ON& or TUE TRICKS of a certain class of journal
fists, when they desire to indulge in the fabu
lous or hope to manufacture consolation, is to
howl and rant on the sulij ct of the influx of
contrabands. This was a favorite plea to deter
men from voting the Union ticket at the last
election. " Vote the Dernociatic ticket," in
sisted the tricksters, "or the tree states will be
overrun with contrabands." It appears now.
however, that at no time have the " contra
bands" interfered with white labor, end from
information given by the Pennsylvania Coloni
sation Society, it is shown that as fast as con
trabands arrive within the lines of the Federal
army, or as they come even further north, they
are ready and willing to return to the south as
army teamsters In this capacity they make
themselves very useful, as their knowledge of
the roads, their acquaintance with the busi
ness, and their "inteligence" is capable of fit
ing them for such employment. The slave
darky will yet get his own in this fight, if it is
only the pleasure of driving a loyal team
against a traitor master.

THE CORPORATION of Pittsburg is a strange
compound of inconsistatcy and zealous activity
for virtue and morality. One day its officers
arrest and fine the bawds of the town, which
is all right—the next day the butchers are
simil..rly dealt with for letting blood on Sun
day, which is ditto—and then on the following
day the corporation itself is carried into court
on a charge of not paying its honest debts.

Smotorrown HOSPITAL.—We recently printed
a letter written by one of the Surgeons at
Smoketown Hospital, communicating facts
which are attracting great attention in various
parts of the state. Our readers will remember
that the correspondent in question was earnest
in his requests for aid, and we literature trust
that preparations have been made in this city,
(if contributions have not already been for
warded,) at once to send to Smoketuwn Hospi
tat the aid so earnestly asked for by our corre
spondent. We notice that this matter is receiv
ing some attention in Pittsburg. The papers of
that city copied extracts from our Smoketuwn
letter, and then eloquently appealed for aid in

LEY RAmROAD.-It is understood that legal pro
ceedings will be instituted against the Cumber

Philadelphia city, who are interested in the
cases of those who were injured by the disas
trous accident that occurred on the terminus of
the Cumberland Valley Railroad, on the Cum
berland side of the river, opposite this city, as
the Pennsylvania militia were returning from
the Southern border of the State, after the in
vasion of Maryland ny the rebels.
A correspondence has taken place with the
President of the road, and from the witure of
the s ime, it is probable that the Company will
do whatever is reasonable in the premises re
girding the payment of damages, otherwise
law-suit will result. Investigations are on foot
to determine the exact pecuniary position and
extent of loj tides received by all those belong
ing to regiments in that city who were on the
train at the time.
INTRANSTING PREMENTATION.—We learn from
a friend of Priest Maher, that his Reverence
has lately been presented with a memento
which to him has proven highly interesting
and complimentary. While General Cameron
was making a hurried tour of Europe, he tar
ried for a few day a in Rome, the Eternal City,
and while there visited the Coliseum, the Vati
can, and other localities of historical and
present celebrity. While viewing the splen
dors of the Vatican, he was conducted through
the gardens of that magnificent residence of the
Pope, and there, with permission of his guide,
Gen. Cameron plucked two lemons, which he
carrried with him back to this city, and here
presented the present to Priest Maher. Of
course the lemons of themsevea are of no more
value than any of those which grow in the
soft climate of Italy, but Priest Maher prizes
the gift because the memory of an old Mend
suggested this delicate recollection in so holy
a locality as the Vatican.
MIDDLETOWN LYCEUM. —This association met
at the North Ward School house on Friday
evening. The President, Mr. Caleb Roe, being
absent, Ur. M. R. Alleman, was called to the
Chair. On motion, the regular proceedings of
the Lyceum were suspended for the evening,
when Mr. J. S. Krumbine was proposed as a
member, and unanimously elected. An elec
tion was then held for officers, which resulted
in the choice of M. R. Alleman as President,
and J. J. D. Ruth, Secretary. On motion, a
committee, consisting of T. C. Search, J S.
Krumbine, and J. W. Stofer, was appointed to
revise the Constitution and By-laws of the Ly
ceum, after which Messrs. Geo. W. Rodfung
and Gen. H. Irwin, were proposed as members,
and by a vote of the Lyceum declared as such.
Proceedings for next evening being in order, a
political question, involving a discussion which
the Secretary believes to be entirely out of
place at present, was selected for nest even

The" Lyceum is gratified to learn, that Lieut.
George F. Ross, one of the original members of
this Association, who was so severely wounded
on the field of battle at Corinth, while heroic
ally defending our common country, is rapidly

meeting with us again are so flattering. This
wicked and fiendish rebellion has had its effects
upon literary societies as well as upon every
thing else. Messrs. Caleb Roe and Simon C.
May, who used to respond so promptly to their
names in this Association, now answer to the
call of the bugle on the tented field. But we

all the Peter Funk establishments in that city

use of the hospitals iu this vicinity :

MTSTNHIOUS DISOOVEBY OF SOLDIRRS' CLOTHING
—Mr. Wm. H Colsher, while out gunning yes
terday afternoon, and when passing Allison's
Hollow, discovered a lot of soldiers' clothing,
consisting of two pair of pantaloons and two
over•coati. Officer Fleck was informed of the
tact, who immtdiately proceeded to the locality
and took charge of the clothing, which will be
handed to any one having lost such goods on
their being properly identified.
The clothing is at the residence of officer
WILD CAT SHOT. —One night recently, says
the Allentown Democrat, while Mr. Amos
Braut.s, of Upper Macungie, was out on a rac
coon hunt, he espied what he supposed to be
one on a large Iree in Haller's woods, in Weis
enburg township, and leveling his rifle he fired
and brought the object of his aim to the ground;
but instead of its proving "that same old coon,"_
it wag no less than a wild cat. Being only
wounded, a fierce fight ensued, in which a
couple of faithful dogs took part, rt suiting in
the death of the beast. Mr. B. then shoulder
ed his unexpected prize and lugged it home,
where he carefully skinned it with a view to
preserve the hide. The animal measured 4
fret 6 inches in length. Beasts of this kind
are rare in this part of the country, and it is
not unlikely that this one strayed away from
the northern mountains.
STABBING AFFAIR AT THIRD asp MULBERRY
STREETS. —A great excitement was crated in
the rutiglibarhood of Third and Mulberry streets,
yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock, by the
stabbing of a soldier by a negro. It appeara
that a soldier had been in one of the negro huts
in that vicinity, .looking after same clothes
which he had given out to be washed, and as
he was leaving the house, he accidently ran
against a negro who was standing near the
door. The collision seemed to ruffle the temper
of the darkey, who, not satisfied with abusing
the soldier, followed and stabbed him, inflict
log a severe and it is thought a fatal wound.
The Provost Guard arrested the negro, and if it
bad not been for the interference of the officers
in charge of the Guard, the soldiers would have
killed the negro, so great was the indignation
of the soldiers against the assassin.
It is almost time that the authorities take
some notice of the locality in which this assault
was committed It is a loathsome "sore" on
the body corporate, and should be operated on
as speedily as possible.
THANKSGIVING DAY DINNED YOU Ilia SICK AND
WOUNDS]) SOLDIERS—A Noble Suggestion.—la
the midst of the private preparations which are
m.tking for the celebration and observance
of Thanksgiving Day, some good angel has
inspired the ladies of the city to enter on the
preparation of alepast on that occasion for the
sick and wounded sol4iers now in the various
hospitals within Harrisburg and its vicinity.
These preparations are partly complete, and
all that is now wanted to render the affair a
success, is the liberal response of the people.
They solicit contributions of all that is deem xi
necessary to constitute a repast of which the
sick and wounded can partake ; and with
this the good city of Harrisburg abounds.
Those wbo contribute poultry, are requested to
send the same roasted ; and all contributions
should be forwarded to any of the following
committee by Wednesday evening:
MRS. C. C. MATTHEWS,
MRS. JANE M. BRYAN,
MRS. D. MUMMA,
MRS. M. VERBEKE,
MRS. J. J. SEIOEMASEEL
This appeal is not only intended for the peo
ple of Harri.-ber4, or for the people of Dau
phin county. It is addressed to those at a dis
tance who can send what they deem best to cheer
and comfort the occasion referred to. It would
be a beartless thanksgiving indeed, and one on
which God would frown, if the weary and the
wounded and the sick soldiers were left unnotic
ed or uncared for in the midst of our own rejoic
ing. Let the people of Harrisburg, then, each
give a portion. God will smile on the offering as
a sincere profession of thanks, while the sol
dier will bless the hands which make it, as a
practical proof of regard on the part of the
people. We are good for one turkey.
SHEETS Tars BILTEDEBER TO BE HANGED.—The
death sentence was passed for the second time
in Seaver county, on Thursday last, when Eli
Sheets was sentenced to be hung for the mur
der of John Aimley. Judge Agnew was almost
[Roved to tears en the occasion. Sheets, when
asked if he had anything to say, rose and said,
with slightly apparent effort, "I am innocent
of this murder." As the Sheriff and others
were conducting him back to prison, he spiang
from them, freeing hi., hands from the hand
cuffs and ran rapidly toward the river. He
WBB, however, overtaken and brought back be
fore he had succeeded in getting more then a
few hundred yards.

pleasure excited in the reception of that great
man who was "first in petice, first in war, and

loyal feeling that existed then has grown with

pleasures of food—the beauties of landscapes—
the joys of companionship—the richness of lit
ereture—or the honors of station and renown—
must preserve their health.
The stomach is the receptacle of all nourish
ment, and the fountain from which all parts of
the body, derive sustenance. The effect of foul
injurious food entering the stomach, is to de
rdu ge the digestive organs, and produce headache,
loss of appetite, unrefreshed sleep, fwlid breath, low
spirits, feverish burnings, constipation, incapacity to
perform any mental or physical duty, Sec., and are
the symptoms of that horrid disease
Which assurnea a thousand shapes, and points
towards a miserable Life and-premature decay. The
Medical Faculty has labored for generations to
discover reliable appetizers and the pr. per
means of overcoming stomachic derangements.
Certain iwzredients have been long known as
partially r ffcctive. Among these were
CALISAYA BARK & ST. CROIX RUM.
An invalid physician, sojourning in the tro

Messrs. P. H. DRAKB. Geffiklnefi. : I have

suffered greatly from everything I ate. I have

Respectfully yours, Rev. J. S CATHORN."
Intelligent persons and physicians can judge
of the t fficacy of the Plantation Bitters from
the following partial formula.
Was kre.wn and used in Germany for Dyspep
sia, Chrouic DiarrhceA, Cholic, Dysentery, and
diseases of the Stomach and Bowels, as early as
For Inflammations of the Loins and Spleen in
Dropsical Affections and Biliary Secretions, or
Obstructions of the Abdominal Viscera.
CALISAYA, OR KING'S BARK,
Was unknown to civilization until the middle
of the 17th century. Humboldt makes favora
ble mention of the febrifuge qualities of this
article as au Autido e to Fever and Ague, In
termittent and alalarious Fevers, in hie; eaten •
sive South American travels. The Countess,'
wife of the Viceroy of Peru, having experienced
the beneficial effects of this Bark, sent it to
Europe in 1640. It was sold by the Jesuits for
the enormous sum of ifs own weight in silver, and
was thus calhd JESUITS' POWDER. In 1658, Sir
John Talbot employed it with great success in
France, In the treatment of Fever and Ague,
Dyspepsia, Nervous Affections, Loss of Appetite,
Weakness and Debility, Palpitation of the
Heart, TharrhceVic , under the name of Eng
fish Powders ;and in 1679, he sold the secret
of its origin to Louis XIV, by whom it was di

Winter-green, valuable for Scrofula,Rheuinatism,
and Nefratic Affections ; Lavender Flowers, aro
