Novannia TWINTY-11118T was the festival
of the patron saint of music, St. Cecilia.—
This saint was a Roman lady who lived and
suffered martyrdom in the early part of the
third century. So skilful was she in singing
that she has for centuries been regarded as the
patron saint of music, and several churches
were built in her honor in Rome. R. Cecilia
was a favorite subject with the old painters, and
inspired Raphael with one of his divinest con.
captions—the celebrated picture of the saint in
the gallery at Bologna.

resided on hie father's farm. A short time
previous he had sold a lot of grain and some
hogs at a figure which he subsequently found
was too low, and this had given him considera
ble trouble. He was discovered suspended by
the neck, in the stable, near his father's resi
dence, and the only cause assigned for the act
is that above alluded to. Animals in human
shape are better out than in the world.

Mr. Local Editor of Zelograph:
AB exaggerated stories prevail regarding the
losses sustained by the recent robbery at Horr's
Hotel, we beg leave to inform you that the
entire amount stolen amounted to but two
hundred dollars in money and three gold
watches. Please make the correction in your
paper, and oblige CorLi & Urn.
Two hundred dollars in money and three
gold watches is pretty good at one haul, and/
we think, requires no exaggeration.
A Tammy DIATH.--Joseph Kellerman and
family, who immigrated from Bedford county to
Anderson county, Kansas, about four years ago,
were again proceeding further west, when they
were overtaken by prairie -fires, which consum
ed him and his wife and two little boys. They
had resided in Anderson county until about the
80th of October last, when they started for a
point some fifty miles west of their late resi
dence. They were overtaken when they were
about ten miles out and everything on or be
longing to their wagon, was devoured. Three
of the older children were driving the cattle
and succeeded in escaping this horrible end.
The fasts of this terrible death were communi
cated to the Bedford Inquirer.

those who are afflicted with Rheumatism Dys

Coughs, Fevers, and all diseases arising from
impurity of the blood, that she is prepared to
furnish Mrs. Westhoven's German Vegetable
Medicines at very moderate rates. I have also
on hand a quantity of invaluable Salves for
Sore Eyes, Frozen Feet and Piles. References
can be furnished as to, their wonderful efficacy,
whenever called upon. There need be no ap
prehension in regard to my competency to ad
minister it, as I have had it on hand for the
past six years. As they are now sold at reduced
prices, no family should be without them over
night. They can be bad at any time at my
residence, in Pine street, between Second and

I'IUMIAILPHIA, Nov. 3, 1862
Mr•s. Ball :—I feel no hesitancy in acknow
ledging the virtue of your medicine, its sooth
ing influence and healing power. For several
years I was afflicted with dyspepsia, and during
my stay in Harrisburg you cured me in the
short space of one month, of that annoying
and distressing disease, and at the same time
also cured me of a running scrofula, which had
existed for over one year without ceasing.—
During my years of affliction, I applied fre
quently to doctors of medicine, but they proved
ineffeglual. I have the utmost eonfidence and
bellefin the power of your medicine, and would
say to those afflicted, who wish to enjoy life in
its natural element, with a system renewed to
vigorous nature, to try your medicine as I did.

the joys of companionship—the richness of lit
erature—or the honors of station and renown—
roust 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
range the digestive organs, and produce headache,
loss of appetite, unrefreshed sleep, foetid breath, low
spirits, feverish burnings, constipation, incapacity to
perform any mental or physical duty, 4c., and are
the symptoms of that horrid disease
Which assumes 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 proper
Means of overcoming stomachic derangements.
Certain inzredients have been long known as
partially effective. Among these were
CALISAYA BARK & ST. CROIX RUM.
An invalid physician, sojourning in the tro
pical island of St. Croix, observing the habits
of the natives, gathered the recipe for the final
accomplishment of this most important end.
The article was first used as a private medicine,
when its salutary effects becoming known, ill
was brought out under the name of
DRAKE'S PLANTATION BITTERS.
They act with unerring power, and are taken
with the pleasure of a beverage. They perform
most wonderful cores in stubborn cases of Dys
pepsia, Liver Complaint, Nervous Affections,
Loss of Appetite, Intermittent Fevers, Diar
rhoea, Sour Stomach Headache, Fever and
Augue, Weakness, Mental Despondency, &c.
Al a morning appetizer and after dinner tonic, they
should be in every family. They are a delightful,
exhilerating stimulant, without any subsequent stupefy
"Roomamm, December 28th, 1861.
Messrs. P. H. Ditaxs.—Gentlemen :—I have
suffered terribly with Dyspepsia for three or
four years, and tried many remedies without
effect. I had to abandon my profession , and
suffered greatly from everything I ate. I have
now tried the Plantation Bitters—they helped
me—l continued their use, and am now nearly
a well man. I know of several similar cases.
Respectfully yours, Rev. J. B CATHORN."
Intelligent persons and physicians can judge
of the efficacy of the Plantation Bitters from
the following partial formula.
Was known and need hi Germany for Dyspep
sia, Chronic Diarrhoea, Cholic, Dysentery, and
diseases of the Stomach arid owels, as early as
For Inflammations of the Loins and Spleen in

Obstructions of the Abdominal Viscera.
OALISAYA, 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 an Antidote to Fever and Ague, In
termittent and Malotions Fevers, in his exten
sive South American travels. The Countess
wife of the Viceroy of Peru, having experienced
the beneficial effects of this Bark, tent it to
Europe in 1640. It was sold by the Jesuits for
the enormous sum of its own weight in silver, and
was thus called Jzsurrs' POWDBIL In 1658, Sir
John Talbolsemployed it with great succesa in
France, in the treatment of Fever and Ague,
Dyspepsia, Nervous Affections, Loss of Appetite,
Weakness and Debility, Palpitation of the
Heart, Diarrheas, &c., under the name of Eng
lish Powders ; and in 1679, he sold the secret
of its origin to Louis XIV, by whom it was di
vulged. It is now a standard remedy in all
Pharmacopoeia, and is employed In preparing

In the Name and by the Authority
' OF THE
COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA,
ANDREW G. CURTIN,
GOVERNOR OF THE RAID COHNONWEALTH.
Wninses, It is a good thing to render thanks
unto God for all His mercy and loving kind
Therefore, 1 - , Asinazw G. Coaxer, Governor
of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, do re
commend that THURSDAY, THE 27th DAY OF
NOVEMBER NEXT, be set apart by the people
of this Commonwealth, 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 our garners are
choked with the harvest—and to look so favor
ably on the toil or His children, that industry
has thriven among us and labor had its reward;
and also that He has delivered us from the
hands of our enemies—and filled our officers
and men in the field with a loyal and intrepid
spirit, and given them victory—and that . He
has poured out upon us (albeit unworthy) other
great and manifold blessings :
Beseeching Him to help and govern ns in 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 Chris
tian churches grace 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, wiedom and earnestness
in council, and upon our military leaders, seal
and vigor. in action, that the fires of rebellion
may be quenehed—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 h undredi and sixty-two, and of the
Commonwealth the eighty-seventh.
