Company C, 55th P. V., who was captured by
the rebels in August last, is at Salisbury, N.

that there is no truth in the rumor. He was

bargains would do well to examine the goods

DEDICATION OP A MASONIC HALL.—The new
Masonic Hall, in Shippensburg, was dedicated,
with appropriate ceremonies, on Thursday
last. A procession of the members was formed,
and, headed by a brass band, marched through
the streets of the town. A Bible purchased
by the ladies, ava.s presented to the Lodge, by
Rev. James Colder, of this city, and was re
ceived in behalf of the Order, by Rev. F. A.
'Rapley, of Reading.
Taxmnr.—The thrilling play of THE IRON
Cann, and the very laughable farce entitled
Neighbor's Wife, compose the bill for this
evening. In the first named piece Mr. Meek

great character of Sir Achecrrd Mortimer.—
Ur. Rouse, the world-renowned comedian,
and Miss Fanny Denham, the popular actress
and songstress, will appear in both plays.—
The entertainment of this evening will be the
sixty-ninth . of the present season. The Star
Combination Company is increasing in popu
larity, and bids fair to extend the season to
the full extent of a year. Go to the hall
STAMPS AND STAMPED ENVELOPES. --.lt may
not be generally known by the public who
use large quantities of stamps and stamped
envelopes, that they can save five per cent.
on their purchases at our own, or any post
office where the amount in stamps purchased
exceeds the total sum of $1 00; which amount
may be made up of the various denominations
of stamps, and when a purchase of envelopes
amounts to $5 00, which number also may
be made up of different denominations and
This very liberal discount on stamps and
envelopes will, no doubt, where generally
known, induce many larger purchases than
are now made, and prevent the very many
small ones which are now made at the letter
deliveries of post-offices. Storekeepers and
others who use a great number of these ar
ticles, and desire to realize a mite by selling
them, can do so by increasing their purchases
somewhat, and in manyinstances may extend
and increase their trade by the extra pur
chasers attracted to their places of business.
They will most certainly accommodate the
public living in their vicinities by the sale of
these articles in their stores.
HALL or TILE REPUBLICAN INVINCIBLE& —The
loyal young men of Harrisburg, anxious to
serve the great cause of the Union by pro
moting the election of Abraham Lincoln, have
organized a club, to be known as the Repub
lican havincibies, making their headquarters
in the house formerly occupied by the Mt.
Vernon Hook and Ladder Company. The
Invincibles number just one hundred men,
organized, officered and equipped in the most
complete manner, each Invincible, when on
parade, to carry a splendidly stained glass
lamp, bearing the inscription :
LINCOLN, JOHNSON AND LIBERTY.
The following is the organization of the
club forTarade duty :
Capt.— JOSEPH ICINESS.

For the transaction of business within the

The headquarters of the Invincibles have
been beautifully decorated within and with
out, the walls of the hall being adorned with
-American flags and patriotic mottoes, while
on the front of the building is displayed an
immense transparenci, bearing the inscrip
On either end of the transparency is a shield,
one inscribed with the name of Lincoln, the
other that of Johnson. We have seldom seen
a more finished specimen of designing or
painting, than that of the transparency, and
it is only fair to state that the work was the
production of L. IV. Seavy, an artist of rare
talent, who has already won a greatreputation
as a scene painter and sketcher.
The R epublican Invincibles will do great ser
vice daring the time yet remaining of the cam
paign, and will visit the different localities in
the county at whieh meetings have been ap
pointed. Their first parade will be made on
Wednesday next, when they will act as an es

in the Rouse of Representatives.

WHAT NEWSPAPER hlas SUFFER.--As the
chroniclers of events, newspaper people are
dependent on others for facts, so that the in
formation which is conveyed to the public by
the channels of journalism, is nothing more,
in nine times out of ten, but the repetition of
narratives made to editors and reporters. In
this way, newspaper people are often misled,
and are often, too, made to indulge in state
ments utterly without foundation in truth.
And when thus imposed upon, the easiest and
manliest way to correct the error, is to
avow it, and thus disabuse the public mind.
'We are led to these observations by the fact
that the statement which appeared in our lo
cal columns on Saturday, was without foun
dation, having been the invention of one who
was either utterly reckless of what was true,
or who was as much imposed upon as he im
posed upon us. The negress alleged to have
almost been the victim of an abduction, had
consented to go hence with a lady ; she had
even applied to be taken hence ; but when
she was about to leave thus, of her own free
will, she yielded to the persuasions of false
friends, and thus lost the prospect of a good
home, where she would have been fairly and
honorably remunerated for her labor. We
make this statement freely of our own accord,
after having ascertained the facts from parties
in no way connected with those alluded to in
our first notice of this affair. We make it,
too, because we believe that at least three es
timable and respectable ladies have been
foully wronged ; not, however, that their re
putation depended on such a vindication, but
to show that we appreciate the truth, and,
under all circumstances, we are bound to
stand by it.
THE SACRIFICE OF ANOTHER HERO.-A Gal
lant Son of _Harrisburg Perishing that his Coun
try might Live. —The announcement of the
death of Lieut. John W. Winters, who fell
while gallantly contending with the enemy on
the 10th inst., in one of the battles of the
Shenandoah Valley, has filled the hearts of
many men and women who knew him with
overwhelming grief and sorrow. He was a
member of the Seventeenth Pennsylvania
Cavalry, and left this city as Commissary Ser
geant of that regiment more than two years
since. In that time he saw much hard service
and greatly distinguished himself in mane of
the severest battles of the war. For the pre
sent, we content ourselves with giving the
following extract referring to this sad affair,
reserving our room for to-morrow, when we
will publish a full account of this great loss:
Extract of a letter from a member of the company
to which Lieut. Winters was attached
" We have been in eight battles since the
19th of September, but yesterday was the
severest of all. We charged the rebels, drove
em seven miles, captured six pieces of artil
lery, five ambulances, six wagons, and a large
number of prisoners. We lost two of our
Lieutenants. We have no officers now but
Lieut. Neiman. Lieut. John W. Winters was
killed. Poor fellow! We all loved him, and
we all mourn his loss. Lieut. Winters was as
brave as he was good. He charged in among
the rebels, cutting right and left, and had
killed three or four. His sabre was dripping
with the gore of hih enemies when he fell. A
ball struck him in the neck, severing the jugu
lar vein, and he died almost instantly without
speaking a word. Thus has perished one of
the bravest young men that left Pennsylvania
during the war. We are bound to avenge his
death, and make his name our future battle
TRIAL AND SENTENCE or Cir.'. R. B. WAnD,
OF THE 11TH PA. CAVALRY.—Before a court
martial recently convened at Fortress Monroe,
Captain R. B. Ward, of the Eleventh Pennsyl
vania Cavalry, was tried upon four different
Ist. Having been detailed as a general re
cruiting officer in the State, he did present to
George Blesser, a recruiting agent for York
county, (whe was then visiting Harrisburg,) a
forged certificate, stating that three certain
recruits had been passed by the Surgeon, and
mustered into the United States service, to the
credit of Shrewsbury township, York county,
and by said false representation receiving
$9OO from said Blosser, as a local bounty for
the recruits, which money was retained by
2d. That he, the said Captain R. B. Ward,
Co. D, 11th Pennsylvania Cavalry, being in
command of his company, and having com
mitted to his charge a large number of horses,
the property of the United States, did take
from the company a certain sorrel mare, the
property of the United States, and did charge
himself with said mare upon his muster
and pay rolls; that after some time said mare,
by reason of disease, died, and that then he,
the said Ward, did take from the company a
certain horse known as "Rattler," to supply
her place, accounting for her by certificate of
loss as a public animal, and has continued to
use the said horse as private property up to
this date. This at Fort Monroe, Va., on or
about November Ist, 1861, and continuously
since that date.
3d. That he sold a number of hOrses be
longing to the Government, at various times,
and not properly accounting for them.
4th. That he embezzled the money paid him
by George Blosser, of York county, for enlist
ing men in the service, in violation of the
39th article of war. •
At the court-martial the accused pleaded
snot guilty," but the court, after mature de
liberation upon the evidence adduced, found
him guilty, of all the charges and specifica
And the Court "do therefore sentence him,
Capt. R. B. Ward, Co. D, 11th Penn's Cav
alry, That he be cashiered ; that he forfeit
all pay and allowances now due or to become
due dim ; that he be forever disqualified from
holding any office or post of responsibility or
emolument under the government of the
United States ; that he refund to the United
States the various sums of money received by
him for government property fraudulently
disposed of, to wit, in the aggregate the sum
of five hundred and fifty dollars, (s sso;) that
he refund to the , United States or the use of
the horse "Rattler," as pay at • the rate of
forty (40) cents per day for the time during
which he has used the said horse, to wit, for
seven hundred and thirty (730) days, the sum
of two hundred and ninety-two dollars ($292;)
that he refund to George Blosser, or his rep
resentatives, the sum of nine hundred dol
lars ($9OO ;) and that he be confined at hard
labor for the term of three (3) years, at such
Penitentiary as may be designated by the
President of the United States, the said im
prisonment to further continue until the fore
going sums of money are paid." '
And the Court do further add, that this
sentence, together with the crime, name and
place of abode of Capt. R. B. Ward, 11th
Penn's cavalry, be published in the newspa
pers of this department, and of Philadelphia
and Harrisburg, in the State of Pennsylvania.
IL Theproceedings, findings and sentence
in the aboire case are approved. By direction
of the President, so much of the sentence as
relates to the confinement in the Penitentiary,
._ The remainder is confirmed.--
Captain Ward is hereby cashiered, and forever
disiittabiled from holding any office or post of
responsibility or emolument under :i,.• i 1 0 .%
ernment of the United States.

Major and Assistant Adjutant General.
POSTAL MONEY ORDER STSVRIW. —The postal
money order system for some time being or
ganized for the benefit of the public, will be
commenced by the various post offices author
ized to issue money orders on the Ist of No
vember. One hundred and forty-one money
order officeS have been established in the U.
S.; others will be added to this number as
necessities may require. Penna. has fourteen
of this number, three first class and eleven
second class offices. Harrisburg, Pittsburg
and Philadelphia are the first class; Erie,
Honesdale, Johnstown, Lewistown, Meadville,
New Castle, Pottsville, Reading, Scranton
and Williamsport are of the second class.
Any money order office can draw on any other
one throughout the State or United States for
the regular fee charged for the issuing of the
order. No single order will be issued for
more than $3O, but any number of orders of
this denomination may be issued on any office
where it is desirable to have larger amounts
transmitted. Orders will be issued for any
sum under thirty dollars that may be desired,
and fees will be charged in proportion to the
amount, as follows:
For an order of $1 or more, but not exceed
ing $lO, ten cents.
For an order exceeding $lO, but not exceed
ing $2O, fifteen cents.
For an order exceeding $2O, but not exceed
ing $3O, twenty cents.
The design of the system is to - provide a
;safer and surer means of transmitting small
remittances by mail, and to prevent the losses
and annoyances which n - ow occur at times
by the transmission of the money itself. It is
'believed the checks and safeguards which are
•employed in the system will fully prevent any
losses or errors in payment; as much so as
drafts drawn by one bank upon another.
Having this reliance in it we recommend it
- to the use and confidence of the public, be
lieving that a trial will convince all of its
safety, usefulness and utility.
A young man who is more respected for his
appearance than for his intelligence, was per
suaded to vote the Copperhead .ticket, and
must vote for Gen. George B. McClellan by
the request of the young lady to whom he
pays his. attentions. I see, of late, that he
is wearing the badge of the above named
General, no doubt by her request. Pretty
American patriot, isn't he? If all the loyal
young ladies who have Copperhead lovers are
as successful in turning them from the errors
of their ways, Uncle Abe will have a greater
majority yet than what he would otherwise
have. Loyal ladies, try it. V.
PECCLOSOPET.Y. —The philosophy of life, in our
opinion, matures from the experience of a long
life, assisted and made comprehensive through
the struggles incident to the man who honestly
discharges his moral obligations, and provides,
from this world's goods, or accumulates pecu
niary resources for this life's comforts, and dis
seminates all the good in his power. Our phi
losophy teaches us to tap all the avenues at our
command to keep posted up with all the daily
changes occurring in the commercial world.
The ups and downs in prices tax all our inge
nuity. The unsettled condition of our coun
try, and the fear of commercial disaster, have
presented such ghostly forebodings to the
minds of some merchants in our Atlantic
cities, that institutions, called panic auctions,
have sprung up, which hold out peculiar in
ducements. C. L. Bowman, No. 1, corner of
Front and Market streets, will open, to-day,

RENOVO has been selected as the site for the exten

the Philadelphia and Erie Railroad, of which the Penna.
Railroad Company are now lessees. It is 92 miles west of
Sunbury, and 198 miles east of Eric. The town is beau

Susquehanna river, in the county of Clinton, and is sur
rounded by romantic and attractive scenery. The Rail
road Company ate erecting an immense Locomotive
Round House, Repair Shops for Cars and Engines, Car
Building shop, Iron and Braes Furnaces, and Dwellings
for the Superintendent and other officers. A splendid
Hotel, with which are connected arrangements for feeding
passengers on the most extensive scale, has been com

and substantial character, of brick and iron, and are in
accordance with the immense business anticipated on the
completion of this great Railroad, so long anxiously
looked for, and now an accomplished fact—the last rail
connecting the Susquehanna river with Lake Erie having
