EVERY loyal man and woman in Harrisburg
is to-clay rejoicing over the glorious news re
ceived from our noble army. Those who were
fearful of the result begin to see light ahead,
and all hope for the speedy overthrow of the .
rebellion. There arc, however, in our midst
those who would rejoice at the defeat of the
Union arms. Such persons are to be de
spised ten-fold more than the rebels who are
iu arms against us. 'Let the loyal people con
tinue to rejoice, and at the same time keep an
eye on traitors.
Anox of such articles as wounded soldiers

Briggs, Esq., so that they may be packed this

nobody has a large supply on hand, but one .
cup of jelly or one can of tomatoes or pickles
from each person, or some dried rusk, sugar,
lemons, tamarinds, Sse.., will soon fill a box.

quarters of the District of Nashville," we glean

Capt. Eckels, of Harrisburg, is Assistant
Commissary of Muster, on the staff of Maj.
Gen. Rousseau, who is commander of the Dis
trict of Nashville. • •
The Seventy-nirith .Pennsylvania regiment
Passed through Nashville, recently. , That gal
lant officer, Col. Hambright, halted the regi
ment in front of Gen. Rousseau's headquarters,
and at the request of the General, exercised
the regiment in the manual of arms. The
accuracy and celerity of their "movements
elicited the highest plaudits from' the as
sembly who witnessed the drill. The 79th
having at one time been under the command,
a tiger was given for the General at the con
clusion of the drill, and the band favored.
those present with a national air.
The Seventh Pennsylvania. Cavalry, which
had been encamped near Nashville, moved
about the first instant. The brigade to which
this regiment was attached, Was commanded
by Col. Sipes.
The letter says that the greatest activity
prevailed in all the departments at Nashville;
hospitals were preparing for those who might
be wounded, and sanitary store s were accumu
lating in large quantities.

Hs_caislitract, Feb. Bth, 1864.
C. A. Beiswvear—Dear Sir: I have used
Brown's Bronchial Troches, Wistar's Lozenges
and othel preparations for hoarseness and
throat troubles, and in comparison with tlitem
all, can cheerfully commend your own as a
most admirable specific for public speakers
and singers, in cases of hoarseness, coughs
and colds. I have found them serving in
time of need, most effectually.
Yours truly, T. H. ROBINSON,
, Pastor of N. S. Presbyterian Church.
ggif-I agree with Mr. Robinson as to the
value of Batuivart's Troches.
W. C. CATTELL,
Late Pastor of 0. S. Presbyterian Church.
HARRISBURG, Jan., 1864.
To C: A. BLiiiivezr—Dear Sir: In the habit
of speaking very frequently, and in places
where the vocal organs are very much taxed,
I have found the need of some gentle expecto
rant, and that want has been supplied in your
I consider them very far superior to any
Lozenges that I have ever used, in removing
speedily that huskiness of the voice arising
from its too frequent use, and impairing" the
effectiveness of the delivery of public ad
dresses. Yours, &o.
JNO.W ' ALKER JACKSON.
Pastor of the Locust St. Methodist Church.
To C. A. 13Alurveirr—Dear Sir:. Having used
your Troches, I am free to say they are
the best I have ever tried and take great
pleasure in recommending them to all persons
licted with sore throat or huskiness of
voice arising from public speaking or singing.
Yours, &c., G. G. RAKESTRAW,
Pastor of Ridge Avenue Methodist Church.
DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S OFFICE,
HARRISBURG, Feb. 29, 1864.
To C. A. B.irufvurr--Dear Sir : I have
found your Troches to be invaluable in re
lieving hoarseness and in strengthening the
muscles of the throat. They impart clearness
to the voice, and are certainly of great bene
fit to all public speakers. A. 3. HERB.

IMBRIUM TOOTH WASH!
THESE elegant preparations combine the
most desirable cleansing and astringent qualities.
They render the Gums hard and healthy; neutralize the
acid secretions of the mouth, (thereby removing the
prime muse of decay.) By their detersive properties they
preserve the natural color of the Teeth, without in the
least degree injuring the enamel, while they impart to
the breath a fragrance peculiarly aromatic and pleasant.—
In fact they are THE BEST ARTICLES in use for the pur
poses named, as a fair trial will fully demonstrate, and
as has been abundantly proved by their extensive sale in
this community during the last II years; and which will
be readily testified to by many who have repeatedly
urged the Proprietor to still further extend their sale and
usefulness. They are warranted to be free from those
destructive acids which so frequently contaminate many
of the preparations of the present day. Prepared and sold
at the Dental Rooms of the Proprietor, corner of Second
and Walnut streets. JOHN P. KELLER,
