this locality are indulging in, is not stopped,
there will be a lot of condemned government

PORTON= PUBLIO Sam —The sale which was
to have taken place at Brant's Hall on Saturday
evening last, of certain property late the
estate of Charlotte dec'd, and now
used and occupied as a hotel, on the corner of
Walnut and Sixth streets, in this city, will be
sold this evening, in Brant's Hall, at 7 o'clock, with
out fail. The terms of sale will be made known
by the trustees, Jacob b. Boas and John Brady.°
PASSIM THROUGH.—Four companies of the
Tenth 11. S. Infantry, passed through the city
on Saturday evening, en route to the front of
the Army of the Potomac. These companies
have been stationed in western forts for some
years, and have seen severe service on the
the plains, many of them having been engaged
in the battles last summer. The detachment
embraces companies A, C, F and H, and is
under command of Major Hayden, Lieut. R. H.
Hall, Reese B. Fleeson and M. Q. Boyce.
ORGANIZATION ON DRAFTED MEN.—The 168th
regiment Is formed of three companies from
Fayette county, five companies from Westmore
land county, one from Beaver county, and one
from Greene county. The field officers are not
yet elected. The 169th regiment is formed by
four companies from Crawford county, two from
Mercer county, one from Butler county, one
from Clarion county, and two from Erie county.
The following field officers have been elected :
Colonel, L. W. Smith ; Lieutenant Colonel,
Samuel Wickersham ; Major, William Smyth,
of Butler county.
WA Mumma, TH. Wourao, not only for the
beauty of our ladies and bravery of our men,
but we defy the competition of any other city
of a like ability with Harrisburg, in the mat
ter of the increase of population. For exam.
ple, we have the most reliable information for
stating that in a circle of two hundred yards
within Harrisburg, and in the space of less
than sixty days, seven blooming, beautiful
babies opened their eyes to the light of the
world, at once the joy of ' their happy mothers
and the hope of their proud papas. Four of
these children are boys, and three girls. Beat
this, whatever city can?
A Noun= Ratm.—A local reporter, as he
goes delving through the city, accosting his
friends for items of news, and running into all
sorts of danger that he may be able to gather
facts of terrible import and incidents of a sen
sation order, occasionally gleans items which,
while they may not interest the "rough mass,"
have about them a pleasing and a beautiful
interest. For instance, the other evening,
while enjoying thegenial hospitality of a friend,
and sharing the good cheer with which his
ample board abounded, the matron of the house
exhibited to us a wollen stocking (we like the
old name better than the polite "hose") and a
wollen mitten, which were the firbtahe ever had
on either her hand or font. With sixty sum
mers having shed their rays in her path ; with
the bitter winds of winter that blew rudely in
her face, and through some remarkable and
sorrowful changes, she has preserved these
mementoes of her earliest infancy. And sueh
a stocking and mitten I One would almost
think that they were made for a fairy. Yet
the good dame who wore both, has lived to
a healthy old age, to see around her the repre
sentative of a third generation. She says that
the stocking and mitten are to be buried with
her, and thus the relic of infancy with the trem
bling relic of old age will go down into the

the barrel weighs eleven pounds, and the others
are correspondingly large, the molt of them
averaging six pounds. The beets are perfectly

ATTIINDED DITINE SERVlOE.—Captain John F.
Peck's company of drafted men attended divine
service in a body in the United Brethren church,
at Churchville, yesterday morning. They were
in full uniform and presented a fine appearance.
Alter service they were served with some re
freshments by Mr. Hess, when they started on
their way back to camp. The company was in
charge of the Captain, John F. Peck, and First
Lieutenant Jacob fattish, both of whom are from
Swatara township. This was the first company

THE CAVALRYMEN AND THEIR HORsss.—We
notice that several of the regiments of cavalry
in c imp in this vicinity have received their
horses, and we notice also, that unless the city
ordinance is enforced, some of the dashing cav
alry officers will make a race course of the
streets of Harrisburg. Yesterday about the
time the afferent congregations were dismissed,
and the street crossings were crowded with
people, several of those brave cavaliers came
dashing along Third street at regular Gilpin
speed, rushing as if the rebels were behind
them. This fast riding by the officers is emu
lated by the men. Since these cavalry regi
ments have received their horses, we have
heard of several animals that have been se
riously injured, and one horse was killed yes
terday while being furiously ridden from camp
X r ...
There is an order of the War Department
against all such furious riding—and there is a
city ordinance providing against the same of
fence. It is our duty to insist that both are
enforced, and it is the sworn duty of the officers
of the camps as well as the officers of the city,
to see that this order and ordinance are not
violated. If these rash cavalrymen are not
checked, we shall be called on to record some
dreadful loss of life, in which the innocent will
A WORD FOR THE CARRIERS OF THE TELEGRAPH.
—Some of our Carriers have lately appealed to
us, that we in turn appeal to the patrons of the
TELEGRAPH in their behalf. Our Carriers com
plain that a number of the subscribers to the
TELEGRAPH, at the end of the week or month,
invariably tender in payment for the amount
due, a One Dollar Note. In reason and common
sense, this is not fair. The subscriber can
easier provide himself with six or twenty-five
cents, than the carrier can with seventy-five or
ninety-four cents. A moment's reflection will
convince any reasonable man of the injustice of
asking the Carrier to make such change.—
When a dollar bill is offered the Carrier, the
result is often an unpleasant bicker, while
the Carrier must run through localities in
quest of change, to his own loss in time, and
often to his;own loss in discount. Will our
reflecting and reasonable friends endeavor to
save our Carriers from all this trouble?—
Quite a number of our exchanges come to us,
of late, reduced in size, on account of the ad
vance in printing materials. Although our
business has been severely affected by the same
cause, we shall endeavor to hold out, and fur
nish the same size of paper we are now doing
for the same price. In consideration of this,
we dare appeal to our subscribers to deal fairly
with our Carriers, and in return the Carriers
will be expected to deal promptly and cour
teously with the patrons of the TELEGRAPH.
FRAVDITLIINT Issuss CO/ DISORARGYS TO DILUTED
Men—An Assistant Surgeon in Me Exemption Mar- '
ka.—On Saturday evening Surgeon General
Bing bad an intimation that one of the late
examining Surgeons at Camp Curtin, Asst. Surg.
Thomas C. Pollock, had been guilty of corrup
tion in office, by which many false and fraudu
lent papers of exemption were issued to the
drafted men. Up to the 6th of this month, or
thereabout, Asst. Surg. Pollock was engaged as
one of the examining surgeons at Camp Curtin,
and up to that time his certificates of physical
disability were legal and formally recognized
by the chief of the Transportation office, to
whom such certificates were usually directed,
with the view of providing the exempted
drafted man with the means of returning back
to his home. Oa the 6th of November Surgeon
J. P. Wilson, by order of the War Department,
took charge of the examination of drafted men,
and had the business under his exclusive con
trol, Assistant Surgeon Pollock being released
of all such duty. Notwithstanding his having
been relieved from this duty. Assistant Sur
geon Pollock continued to issue these certifi
dates, and the chief of Transportation not hav
ing been notified of Pollock's relief from duty
as an examining surgeon, issued transportation
to on who brought certificates of exemption
from Pollock: The fraud was not detec
ted until Saturday morning, when a large
number of exemptions had already been re
ceivedand of course.an equal number of drafted
men were illegally discharged.
It is nnderstOod that Pollock is to be arrested
when the matter will be thoroughly investiga
ted. There is no doubt of the fact of the fraud.
Its extent is all that is unknown. It is pre
'awned that Pollock furnished .himself with
blanks bidere he formally retired as an examin
ing surgeon, and it is now alleged that these
certificates were sold to some of those engaged
in this city as exemption brokers. The sum of
money realized by this disgraceful business,
large as it no doubt was, will not remunerate
those engaged in it, for the loss of character
and position, because the Surgeon General will
push the case to its fullest extremity, that jus
tics may be meted oat to the dishonest sur
geon and his associates in crime. No blame
can be attacked to the Chief of Transportation,
Who should have been notified of the change.

to which the Captain warmly responded,

A HABEAS CORPUS CASE of considerable im
portance to drafted men in the several counties
of this State, is now pending before the Presi
dent Judge of this Judicial District. The case
has been postponed several times, and is to
come up for a final hearing before his Honor
to-morrow evening. It appears that the Com
missioner of Lancaster county, under what he
conceived to be his instructions, drafted a larger
number of men than the ascertained quota of
his county, the surplus to be substituted for
any in the draft who might afterwards be ex
empted. One of the men thus substituted,
John ilarkley, was brought before the Judge
on a writ of habeas corpus, and as the question
will test the right of the Commissioner to draft
more than the ascertained quota of his county,
the decision of the court will be awaited with
some, interest. We understand that the decision
will affect between' three and four hundred
men in Lancaster county alone.

Tae Ray. Da. Lamm, one of the three Epis
copal clergymen arrested and sent north from
New Orleans by Maj. Gen. Butler, preached two
admirable sermons yesterday, in the Episcopal
church in this city.. The circumstances under
which these gentlemen were arrested are as fol
lows :—When thm.Britler occupied New Orleans
to avoid that offence of praying for the President
of the Confederate States 64 on the one hand,
and the necessity of the using the words Prest
dent of the United States" on the other, they
omitted entirely that part of the service of the
church in which the prayer occurs, commencing
morning prayer with the Litany. This plan
was pursued for five months, when Gen. Butler
demanded the use of the regular service, in
cluding of course the prayer for the President.
Refusing to acknowledge militaryauthority over
Parochial affairs, the churches of these gentle
men were closed, themselves arrested and sent
north on parole. Our view of the case does not
justify these clergymen in.their course, for, hav
ing altered the service on the inadequate author
ity of a local convention, it should not havers
quired military force to restore its use to the
standard of the General Convention of the
church, the only authority in the matter of
alteration, and that which these gentlemen
vowed solemnly to respect. Dr. Lacock's ser
mons yesterday were most eloquent and im
pressive. Any suspicion of the disloyalty of
the preacher were satisfactorily removed by the
distinctness and fervency in which his firm voice
responded to the prayer above referred to, and
to that invoking the Divine blessing on our
soldiers who have gone forh at the call of our
DEa or Prisms. Smarr.—The death of this
Dauphin county soldier, elicited the following

Jonas Whdcomb'e Remedy.—Prepared from a
German receipt obtained by the late Jonas
Whitcomb, in Europe. It is well known to
have alleviated this disorder in his case when
all other appliances of medical skill had been
abandoned by him in despair. In no case of
purely asthmatic character has it failed to give
immediate relief, and it has effected many per
manent cures. Within the past two years this
remedy has been used in thousands of cases with
astoniihing and uniform success. It contains
no poisonous or injurious properties whatever ;
an infant may take it with perfect safety. ' •
A SIIETOIL—We knew John Lindsey in our
boyhood days. His family at that time lived
in McClaysburg, now State street in the oity of
Harrisburg. John was known throughout the
neighborhood as a boy of strict integrity, and
had the best wishes of all who knew himi
His mother, the only parent living, was poor,
and supported herself and son by washing.
Years fled on—the boy became a man and
married. The same upright conduct that
characterized the boy continued in his man
hood, and to-day we find him surrounded by
wealth and all the luxury that money can ob..
fain ;- but better far to him than money, is the
proud consciousness of having ministered to
that mother's comfort and happiness in the
evening of her life, and within the last three
years his whole family have been purchasing
their dry goods at the cheap store of 'Trick &

[Extract from a letter on the Battle Field.]
a 'a a a a a. 9,, .9
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 -7
the overlooking position of the commanding
General—the sending into action of the right
and ttie left division—the closing up of the
centre, and final success—excites bewildering
admiradon, 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
the life and blood of twenty thousand men,
must be found in the hospital& War has itS
glories—but 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. Tbe sight is at first poet
tively unendurable. The life-blood of some
is still trickling away in silent cahnness—
while the dissevered limbe and maniac brain of
others give rise to sounds God grant I may not
Bat ye mothers who here seek a son—or
wives a husband—or sisters a brother—or sons
a fatber—know and be consoled thateven here
the hand of mercy is watchful, and better care
is bestowed upon your loved ones than might
wfirst seem possible.• It was' In the hospital
ere rested the gallant Hooker, that I learn
ed the history of those mythical words so often
seen and so little understood, "S. T.-1860—
X." Anything alleviating the sufferings and
saving the lives of our soldiers, is a national
blessing. I witnessed some astonishing results
from this article.
It is well known the effect of burnt gunpowder
and excitement ie thirst, which added to the
loss of blood in the wounded, creates the ne
cessity of a reviving stimulant. In this par
ticular hospital, the physiciaii were, allowing
their patinae to driskPlantitiTn Bitters, other
wise called S. T.-1860—X, and although the
wounded are most numerous here—this , di
vision having opened the fight at 5 in the
morning—the men•were mostly composed, and ,
there was very little fainting. The article acts
upon the stomach and nerves in a most
incomprehensible manner, superior to brandy,
and without subsequent stupefying reaction.
It originated in the West Indies, composed of
the celebrated Calisaya Bark, Boots, Herbs,
BGc.; all preserved in St. Croix Bum—the S. T.
-1880—X being a secret 'ingredient, not yet
revealed to the public It is principally
recommended for want of appetite, disordered
liver, intermittent,fevers, stomachic difficulties,
&c. I understand it was somewhat known in
the Southern States prevLus to the war, and it
appears art agent of Jefferson -payis recently
applied to the Proprietors for the privilege
to make it for hospital purposes during the
war, to which they made the following reply:
'Nsw Tons,' Jan. 16th, 1882.
Agent of, ac.:
Dear Sir.—ln reply to your communication,
offering us - "Fifty thousand dollars for the re
cipe and right to make the Plantation Bitters
for your hospital purls:am during the wart"
we beg to say, your price is it liberal one, con-
Adering it would cost us nothing to comply,
and that otherwise we can derive no revenue
from the Southern States ; but sir, our duties
to our Goieriiinent and our ideas of consisten
cy would not allow ns to entertain it, although
it might please us to wage the sufferings
of your Misguided followers.
Very respectfully yours,

These gentleman give the historY of certain
ingredients to their article for over two hun
dred years—showing that through all changes
of the.medical profession and its practitioners,
strength, composure and cheerfulness have
been derived from these sources. Dr. Woods
in the Washington Hospitals informed me that
one patient was fast winking and crazy, and had
not slept an hour for two weeks,- until the
Plantation Bitters came to his knowledge,
when one day's trial gave him a night's rest,
and he was now &at recovering. I am sur

In the Name and by the Authority
OMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA,
ANDREW G. CIIRT/N,
OTERNOR OF THE SAID COMAIONWEILTH.
WIIKRZAB, It is a good thing to render thanks
unto God for all His mercy and loving kind
Therefore, I, ANDREW G. CUMIN, Governor
of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, do re
commend that THURSDAY, THE 27 thDAY 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
h i lk
forth her increase, so that our Earners are
choked with the harvest—and to 1 so favor
ably on the toil of His children, t t industry
has thriven among ns and labor bad its reward;
and also that He has delivered us from the
bands 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 usin 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, 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.
