Turn out and hear these gentlemen discuss
the great questiiims of the times.
FOR TEE UNlON.—Yesterday our columns
chronicled the marriages of two of the gallant
captains—Fenn and A shenfelter—of the 201st
regiment. These gentlemen have selected
life-partners from among the fair damsels of
our city. Numerous friends tender them the
usual congratulations and will hope for their
speedy return. Captains Fenn and Ashen
felter are for the Union--a union of hearts as
well as of States.
THREE B.IINDRF.D LADIES PRESENT. "—Sllell
is the claim of the copperheads for their pow
wow at the Brady House. The truth is that
there were not a'dozen ladies near the meeting,
except those living in the neighborhood, who
observed and heard the proceedings from their
own windows. The ladies who were in the
assemblage, stood in the mud of the streets,
jolted and insulted by drunken cops, whose
gallantry is on a par with their loyalty.
Fran 135 THE SEASON.—Mrs. M. Mayer has
just received a magnificent assortment of fall
millinery, of the latest styles and patterns,
and the entire stock will be on exhibition on
Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this week,
at No. 13 Market street. Ladies and misses
will there find every article belonging to the
millinery business, from the smallest article
to the most costly bonnet. Having been pur
chased since the decline in gold, these goods
will be sold at greatly reduced rates.
"GRANT has been defeated—his army was
driven back two miles."—Such were the reports
put in circulation by several notorious treason
sympathizers, among our rural friends in
attendance at market this morning. The
Chairman of the Union County Committee,
John J. Shoemaker, followed one of the tories
who was circulating these falsehoods, and
boldly challenged him as a liar and a traitor.
and when thus confronted, the sneak pulled
out The Age to prove the truth of his asser
tion. He might as well have produced the
THE COPPERHEAD CHIEFS claim that flee
hundred soldiers were present and participated
at their pow-wow on Monday night at the
Brady louse. When it is remembered
that there are not, at present, five hundred
soldiers, including those in the hospitals, in
camp and doing provost duty at this post, it
will be seen how just this claim is. Four
fifths of the soldiers are for Lincoln. At the
copperhead pow-wow at the Brady Ilintse, we
noticed several intoxicated cops actually forc
ing invalid soldiers to leave the ground, with
the assertion that "Lincoln's hirelings will be
sent for when wanted!"
FESTIVAL AT THE FIRST FREE BAPTIST
Cuimen.—The festival announced in our col
umns a few days ago, will commence this
evening, at the First Free Baptist Church
(Rev. James Colder, pastor.) The ladies
having the matter in charge have spared
neither labor nor time to perfect the arrange
ments, and render the occasion attractive and
interesting. The lecture and Sunday school
rooms of the church hate been gaily decorat
ed, and a great variety of fancy articles have
been so arranged as to present a beautiful
display. A choice variety of photographs,
paintings, etc., add to the attractions. Re
freshments of various kinds will be on hand,
and every effort will be made to render visi
tors comfortable. • The object of the festival
is a noble one—that of raising the necessary
/means to furnish the house of. God. Let all
attend and contribute, while at the same time
they will receive a full return for their money.
The festival will be continued to-morrow
evening. The church is located at the corner
of State and Fourth streets, back of the Capi
tol. Persons attending will have the benefit
of a walk through the beautiful grounds
attached to the state House.
CONSOLIDATED. —By order of the Secretary
of War the recruits of the Two-hundred-and
fourteenth regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers
have been consolidated with those of the One
hundred-and-ninety-ninth regiment. The
new organization is designated the One-huia,
dyed-and-ninety-ninth regiment, to which J.
C. Brison has been appointed ColoneL
THE 201ST PENN'A REGIMENT.—We have re
ceived letters from our correspondent, A. H.
8., which will be published to-morrow. The
regiment is at Alexandria, Va., quartered in
the Soldiers' Rest. The boys expect to per
form guard duty in the Shenandoah, which
will be preferable to going towards the front.
PICKPOCKETS IN MARKET.-Our city is again
infested with pickpockets, and they have be
gun to circulate in market. This morning
three ladies (there may be others, of whom
we have not heard,) were relieved of their
portmonnaies, one of them containing sixteen
dollars. Persons attending market should
leave their pocket books and extra money at
THE petroleum produced in the State of
Pennsylvania was sold at the wells for $56,-
000,000 during the last twelve months, and

duced $51,000,000. In Philadelphia, the
daily sales of petroleum stocks at the regular
stock exchange board are over $200,060.
The number of petroleum companies organ
ized is about 150, and in New York about'Bo.
UNION DEPOSIT MEETING. —A large and en
thusiastic Union meeting was held at Union
Deposit last evening, the following officers
presiding: _ _
President—John H. Ebersole. Vice Presi
dents—David Bawler, Jr., Henry Balsbach,
David Gingerich, Jos. Wallower, Henry Horst.
Secretary—John S. Pancake.
The meeting was addressed by J. C. Young
and Robert Snodgrass, Esqrs., whose spirited
remarks Made a good impression. The en
thusiasm was unbounded. A good report nilay
be expected from that quarter when the re
turns come in.
SOMETHING NEW ! ---A Grand Bill. --This even
ing we are to be favored with another new
drama---one of the most popular of the age---
in which Miss Kate Denin and Mr. Samuel
Ryan will appear, supported by the entire
strength of Rouse's Star Combination Com
pany. It is a dramatization of Miss Braddon's
great novel, entitled Amioaa FLOYD, or The
Penalty of Disobedience—apiece full of interest,
and at the same time thrilling and romantic.
Miss Kate Denin will assume her great char
ter of Aurora Floyd, and Mr. Ryan will person
ate Steve Margraves. Miss Nellie Sprague,
Messrs. Rouse, Meeker, Fisher, and the entire
company are cast in the piece.' 4, This drama
has never been presented to our citizens, and
is bound to attract a large audience. A sy
nopsis of the scenery and incidents will be
found in the bills of the day.
AN OUTRAGE BT THE COPPERHEAD MABEET
M ASTER. —Au outrage of the meanest and
most contemptible character was perpetrated
at the sale of stalls in the market house this
morning, in which the copperhead market
master was a party. When it came to the
stall occupied by Mr. Brady, a well tried,
fearless and outspoken loyal man, the market
master announced that the price was $6O.
Mr. Brady bid $6O, but it appeared as if it had
been arranged by concert to run this stall up,
as it brought $95, which was higher, in pro
portion, than any stall in the market brought.
A stall immediately opposite to the one oc
cupied by Mr. Brady, and used for the sale of
the same articles, only brought one dollar ad
vance. Indeed, the market master closed the
sale of that stall as soon as the dollar advance
was bid. In the case of Mr. Brady, the bid
ding was kept up until it was fouftd Mr. B.
could not stand the price. Our loyal fellow
citizens should see that Mr. Brady is not the
loser by this fraud.
Aw APOLOGY. —We owe our Christian, elo
quent, patriotic and pure friend Lamberton,
Bob we mean, an apology. We omitted,-aCci
dentally, to state that he presided at the
orgies at the Brady House on Monday night.
Yes, indeed, Robert was there, boiling with
indignation at this dreadful. niggei war, and
almost convulsed with tears at the contempla
tion of the many corruptions of the times.
We hope that Robert will accept this our
apology for omitting his name in our pub
lished report of the proceedings of the meet
ing at the Brady House on Monday night. We
hopq, too, that Muncy M'Reynolds will not
think hard of us, as he was there too, and
we never alluded to the fact. But Muncy un
derstands our omissions, as we can appreciate
his. Muncy was tired after his long ride as
an assistant marshal, and had gone to seek
repose when we were seeking the "big guns"
of the meeting. That's all—at least all we
dare say. Bat next time we will do better by
both Robert and Muncy. Mind, if we don't.
Hoanirma M.IJADER rx KENrocs.s.--Last week
five or six men went to the house of J. R.
Smith, near Keysburg, Logan county, Ken
tucky, and demanded $6OO they said he had
in a box. Mrs. S. told them there was a box
there which had contained some greenbacks,
and showed it, telling them that she would
get them all the money on the place and give
them everything they had if they would spare
their lives. One of the robbers replied that
they would spare her life, but that they came
to take Smith's life and were going to do it.
They ordered his little son to bring a rope,
but the boy not finding a rope, they made
him get a bridle, the rein of which they put
around his neck, tightening it occasionally as
they made their threats. Finally, after tak
ing the little silver and gold Mrs. S. and the
children had as keepsakes, which Mrs. S. pre
senting, begging for the life of her husband,
they took him out of the house and drew him
up to a limb, regardless of the cries of wife
and children, but soon let him down when•
they found that he still said that he did not
have the money. They then forced him over
the fence by pulling at the rein and lifting
him. He was then stabbed to death, dying
