.or Icz.— The very disagreeable
state of the weather did not prevent the peo
ple from going to the Theatre last night, and
the large hall was crowded. The great sensa
tion drama, THE SEA OF Icn, was produced
for the first time, with all its grand scenery,
&c. Those who were present pronounce it a
magnificent production, surpassing anything
ever introduced in our city heretofore. This
evening theplay will be repeated. Everybody
should see it. As there will doubtless be a
great crowd present, those who intend to take
ladies should secure reserved seats at Bann
vart's Drug Store.
PROMOTION OF A GALLANT YOUNG HARRIS-
Brum SOLDIER.--We have just beard of the
promotion of a gallant young soldier, a native
of this city, in whose career we have always
felt a lively interest—Simon Snyder—the
youngest son of Charles A. Snyder, Esq., of
this eity. Simon enlisted before he was sev
enteen years old--was in all the battles of the
Army of the Potomac, and distinguished him
self in the highest degree, winning alike the
applause of his companions-in -arms. and the
confidence of his superiors. He has been
made a captain in the 108th IT. S. Infantry,
receiving his promotion direct from the ranks.
We congratulate Captain Snyder, and feel
confident that he will some day earn and re
ceive a star on his shoulder.
THE GALLANTRY 01' A HARRISBURG CAVALRY
mAw.—We have just read a letter from the
Army of the Shenandoah, in which reference
is made to the gallant action of a Harrisburg
soldier, attached to a New Jersey regiment—
Sergeant Benton H. Zerbe. In one of the
splendid cavalry charges recently made by the
gallant Sheridan, Sergtl Zerbe cut down a
rebel standard-bearer, and captured the rebel
colors, within sight and resistance of a whole
regiment. Gen. Sheridan pronounced the act
one of the bravest he ever beheld, and con
gratulated the young soldier for his gallantry.
We believe that young Zerbe has many friends
and relatives in this vicinity, all of whom will
be proud to hear of his daring deed. Although
he is attached to a New Jersey regiment,
Pennsylvania claims him as one of her own
brave sons, and, at the proper time, will do
m hithe honor he deserves.
WHAT WE Dzcmc.—Upon several occasions
our citizens have been horrified with the ru
mor that unclean substances had been thrown
into the reservoir, from which they drew their
daily supply of water for drinking and other
purposes. To •such an extent did these ru
mors prejudice some of our citizens against
the river water, that they commenced a run
upon the few remaining pumps, from which
even yetmve have no doubt, the more fastidi
ous continue to derive their daily supply of
the pure element in preference to that ob
tained from the reservoir. Although, in each
case, these rumors were found to be fallacious,
yet even those who were the most confident
of the result, qould not help but experience a
feeling of relief when the fact was incontesti
bly proved by draining the reservoir and sub
mitting it to a thorough examination.
As shocking as some of these rumors were,
we doubt very much, even had they proved
correct, if they could have impaired the purity
of the water as much as it is now daily un
dergoing by a very different process. From
observation made by our reporter, the fact is
„clearly established that soldiers and strangers
are resorting to the very mouth of the pipe
through which the waters flow to supply the
the pumps for filling the basin, to wash their
filthy linen and cleanse their dirty wardrobes.
The reader, almost any morning or evening,
by resorting to the river bank in the vicinity
of the water-house, will have an opportunity
of observing the corroboration of our state
ment. The people in that vicinity are morn
ing and evening witnesses of these daring out
rages, while we have frequently seen, in
passing along Front street, soldiers engaged
mwashing their clothes and cleansing their Persons in the very current of the stream
that flows into the water-house. We have
called attention to this nuisance heretofore,
and unless the proper officers - soon see to its
abatement, we will be constrained to complain
of still another nuisance engendered by their
LIEUT. Rani 8. W/NSILES. —The Fall e a
Christian Soldier, a True Man and a Patriot.—
We fulfil a mournful duty, in referring again
to the death of John R. Winters, who, as is
well known, perished while nobly seeking the
suppression of a wicked conspiracy for the
destruction of the free government and free
homes of the American people. The memory
of such men belongs to the nation. Their
deeds will become the richest heir-loom of the
generations that are to follow in our path--
deeds which will constitute the theme of the
poet and the subject of the painter, when
these, in that peaceful era which is reserved
for the nation, achieve their triumphs and lay
them at the feet of a mighty and a free people.
Lieut. John R. Winters was a native of
Lebanon county, born on the 27th of May,
1837—and ,when he fell beneath the flag of
his country, only 27 years of age. His early
years were passed in agricultural pursuits, a vo
cation which became his settled business, and
in which he was regarded as highly successful.
He left Lebanon county to tale charge of the
farm connected with the State Lunatic Hospi
tal. While living in this vicinity, Lieut. Winters
was baptized and received into Rev. James
Col der's church (First Free Baptist) in January,
1861. His Christian walk and conversation
were at once such as evinced the sincerity of
his piety and the purity of his feeling. To
him, duty was action—the action which pro.
duced fruits at once beneficial to himself and
those with whom he was associated. Thus he
won at once the confidence and the affection
of all with whom he came in contact.
The military career of our hero commencgd
before he was regularly connected withythe
army—proving by this that his patriotism did
not need the force of a muster-in oath to teach
him his duty as a defender of his country
when traitors clutched it by the throat.—
He participated in the battles of Fair Oaks
and Malvern Hill, as a citizen. - Being present
when those conflicts were raging, he did not
stand merely as an idle observer of the strug
gles of his countrymen, but plunging into the
thickest of the fight, he seized the weapon of
a fallen brave, and bore himself like a true
man, winning thereby the applause of the ;sol
diers who witnessed his deeds of daring, :and
the admiration of the officers in corn= tnd
who beheld his noble conduct.
In September, 1862, John R. Winters en
listed in company E, Eighteenth Pennsylvania
Cavalry, and was at once made Quartermaster
Sergeant of that regiment.. In the spring of
1863, he was promoted to a Second Lieute ri
antcy, for gallant action in the field before the
enemy, and for the cultivation of true soldierly
qualities wherever his duty led him." From tits
day of his commission to the hour of his
death, Lieut. Winters rode from danger to
danger, literally wooing death at the point
of the sword and the muzzle of the cannon.
His regiment nor his company participated
in no single battle in which he did not
take a prominent part. He never was in
the hospital a single day—he neither sought
or desired furloughs from duty, but remained
at his post, ever faithful and ever ready, until,
surrounded by overwhelming numbers, he fell
pierced through the neck by the shot of a
traitor. The manner of his death can be briefly
stated. He was present at the opening of the
great cavalry fight in the Shenandoah Valley, on
the morning of Oct. 9th, commencing at Stras
burg, Va., lasting all that memorable day and
extending to New Market, a distance of twenty
six miles. That encounter was one of the
most arful of the war. It flashed like a
thuedar bolt in the path of both armies.--
Neither party had time to arrange either a
plan of defence or attack; and it - soon became
one of those fearful struggles in which the
personal bravery, prowess and endurance of
the troops, and not the skill or handling of the
commanders, were to decide the issue and
win the victory. Fury and death howled
and screamed in a banquet of blood—and at
that fearful feast Lieutenant Winters . raged
like a chafed lion. He was among the first in
saddle, rallying only a few of his command,
to meet the first shock of the onset. In
an instant, almost, he and others succeeded in
coming up with the flying foe, and then fear
lessly riding into the very midst of them, cora,
menced a hand to hand contest. And there he
perished—there he fell, before he could realize
that it was to undaunted bravery such as his,
that the Army of the Shenandoah Valley owed
its rescue from annihilation!
We cannot write of Lieut. Winters as of an
ordinary soldier. He had those strong points
of character—those well defined attributes of
moral integrity and_personal sensitiveness of
wrong, which are only found in men of the
purest inifuld. Those who knew him inti
mately well remember the ardor with which
he entered the army; an ardor, not for mar
tial fame or glory, but rather the ardor which
aims at results of the highest good for his
country That country was his idol and his
boast. He loved it as the true man loves his
honor--he was wedded to it, and cherislerd it
as a bride all fair and beautiful and p are!
Soldier never fought inspired by nobler mo
tives. He wanted no man's blood—yet when
his country was menaced, he' regarded no
man's life worth the sparing who was his c oun
try's foe. Men who spring to battle inspired
by such feeling, are invincible, and iihen
they at last fall beneath the fierce heat of the
contest, their memories, like their souls, be
come immortal. The blows which they
strike on earth for the right, are heard in and
echoed back by the blessing of Heaven! They
are the agents of the Great Arbiter of
When they cease to live and battle h ere,
they go hence where battle is riot resumed „to
enjoyed a flooding glory of victory in. that
other world where peace is eternal!
None of the gallant young men who left
Harrisburg, to engage in the fight for the
Government, and who perished in the strug
gle, will be more sincerely regretted an d
gratefully remembered, than Lieut. Winters .
He has left a venerable mother to mourn his
death—the friends and associates of his youth
and young manhood will often recur to the
recollection of his fall with a painful regret
for his loss—while there will be still another
grief for the dead warrior, such as th'e world
cannot assuage, and which will find its solace:
only in a heart with the memory of his'
first, fresh love. May the image of this love he

Round House, Repair Shops for Ctirs and Engines,' Car
Building shop, Iron and Brass 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
menced. All these buildings are of the most permanent
and substantial character, of brick and iron, and are in
accordance with theiminense business anticipated on the
completion of this great Railroad, se long anxiously
looked for, and now an accomplished fact—the last rail
connecting the Susquehanna river with Lake Erie having
been laid on Saturday, July 2d, 1864:
A Company has been chartered by the Legislature for
supplying the town with gas and water, and the wear
works are nearly completed. Churches will be erected
immediately. The situation of RENOVO M entirely
healthy, and as the dimensions of the town are limited
by nature, the value of the lots mast appreciate greatly
in the course or a few years.
EmpORWM will certainly be the most important com
mercial point between Lack Haven and Warren, a dis
tance of 158 miles. It is near the centre of tue railroad,
47 miles west of Behove; 139 miles from Sunbury and
149 miles from Erie It is near the Junction or the Drift
wood Branch of the Sinnemaboaing, with West Creek,
Portage Creek and North Creek, the Valleys of which
streams make itthe most accessible point on the Phila
delphia and Erie raliroad to a very extensive district of
country. The moment the projected railroad c maecting
It with the city of Rochester, N. Y., shall be completed,
few interior towns in the State will surpass it in business
capabilities. An excellent graded road now connects it
with Coudersport, the seat of Justice of Potter county.
It is also connected with Smethport, the seat of Justice of
McKean county. Emporium is the County Seat of Cam
eron county; it has a handsome Court House, and the
Land Company have just completed a large and commo
dious Hotel, which will immediately be opened /o the
public. The Railroad Company are about to erect a hand
some and permanent Passsenger Station at a central point
near the Hotel and Conn Rouse. The 'Place is healthy,
and excellent water is abundant, It is in the midst of
one of the finest White Pine regions in Pennsylvania..
As a manufacturing town it has great advantages; coal,
lumber, atone, bark for tanneries are abundant, and is
railroad communications with the great lakes and all
points of importance in the seaboard are unsurpassed.
This place was selected thirty years ago as a point of im
portance, and a town laid out with the prophetic name of
EMPORIUM, but the difficulty of access has prevented
Its development so entirely that it is mainly known for
the excellence of hunting and trout fishing in the vicinity.
The completion of the Philadelphia and/ Erie railroad
must soon make ii apiece of great importance as a distri
buting point for goods of all kinds, and it offers great
advantages for persons of moderate capital who desire
to identify themselves with the early history of a thriv
