His stock of sheet music is indeed unsur

publishers, (the latest publications included.)
The department for Melodeons has a - well se

different manufacturers, including the cele
brated Mason & Hamlin Cabinet Organs.—
Pianos from the manufactories of Chickering
& Sons,G. Steck, Albrecht, Reikes & Schmidt,
and others, can be had at this establishment.
The above manufacturers have gained such
high reputations that nothing in their praise
need be said. Another feature of the busi

and Lithographs, also oval and square picture

him. In the stock company is Mr. Billings,

Jamas FzsmvALs—To-day is the first day
or beginning of the Jewish new year, be
ing the first day of the month Tishri. Its
observances as a holy day is found in Num
bers, xxix, 1, and is considered among all Is
raelites as a very serious time, and is strictly
observed in every quarter of the globe. On
the 10th day of .the same month occurs the
great "Day of Atonement." This day is char
acterized by total abstinence from all food,
and from worldly occupations and physical
enjoyments on the one hand, and on the other
increased devotional exercises and profoundl •
fervent prayer. On the fifteenth day of the
same month happens the festival of "Taber
nacles." This day is celebrated in remem
brance of the miraculous preservation of the
Israelites, during the forty years of their wan
derings and privations in the Wilderness. In
the time of Moses and his successors, this
"Feast of Tabernacles" was one of gratitude
and rejoicing, not only for the great historical"
and national blessings, that saved and pro
tected their forefathers during their long pi!-,
grimage to the new home of promise, but also
for the gifts of God's beneficence vouchsafed
in such rich abundance, to all his children
during spring, summer and autumn. The fes-:
tival was observed from the _fifteenth day of
the month of Tishri, ere the season changed
for winter ; and in joyful acknowledgment of
the treasures reaped at the close of the agri
cultural year, when the labors of the husband
men were concluded, when the orchards and
vineyards, as well as the corn-fields, had given
up their produce to persevering exertions, and
when those who had tilled the ground were
both rewarded for their work and relieved of
its fatigues. Every seventh year, when the
land also was allowed to rest, the law was
read publicly in the Assembly of the people,
and the paramount duty thus inculcated was
DEATH OF SUBOEON J. B. COOVES —While .
Surgeon General Phillips, of Pennsylvania,
was on a mission in the Valley of the Shen
nandoah to look after the wounded in Penn
sylvania regiments, he was accompanied on
his return from Winchester to Harper's Ferry
a number of volunteer surgeons, and when
about three miles from the latter place the
party were attacked by guerrillas. Surgeon
Coover, of the 6th regiment Pa. cavalry, re
ceived a ball through the hip, inflicting a seri
ous wound. At the time Surgeon Coover was
wounded, it required the . utmost endeavors to
escape from the guerrillas, who surprised Sur
geon General Phillips and party in overwhelm
ing number. After Surgeon Coover arrived
at Harper's Ferry his wound was dressed,
when it was discovered to be of a dangerous
character, and resulted finally in his death on
the 27th inst. Surgeon Coover was originally
attached to the 46th regiment P. V., (Col.
Knipe,) as; an Assistant Surgeon, and. after
wards appointed Surgeon of, the 6th Penna.

Professionally he was regarded as one of

where he Was - eddeated. In the army he was
just rising to that position which is above all
rank in the confidence and respect of good :
men and brave soldiers. The men of the 6th
cavalry Will mourn his untimely end with a.
deep and sincere. regret, while his brother

The body of Surgeon Coover reached this

the Carlisle Herald gives the following notice
of a remarkable family :
" Last week,Elic R. Reese brought his
two sons, Georg-Jeremiah, tcCol. Hen

ted States service. These t*o young men are
the last of twelve brothers who have enlisted in
the army during this war. Four of these
have been killed in the service and eight of
them are yet in the army. The most re
markable feature is yet to come, and we con
fess our credulity was somewhat staggered
when we heard the statement; but the re
spectable character of the father, with the as
sertions of his neighbors, leave no room for
doubt that. Mr. Reese, after having sent
twelve sons to serve his country has yet thir
teen sons at home, all of whom are nude r
This remarkable family reside in Warren
township, Franklin county, of this State.
The father is 78 years old, and is enjoying vig
orous health ; these boys are the children of
three mothers. On taking his leave of
George and Jeremiah, the old man exhorted
them to be good boys and good soldiers,
warning them to guard well the reputation of
their ten brothers who had gone to the field
as well as the thirteen youths left at home.
