invited to attend.
IwN AND cowl NT II v.
DAIS' DOUGHERTY, the silver-toned orator,
will address the Union people of Carlisle, on
t ind ay evening next.
Ur is very singular that the Copperhead
papers, while they denounce the National Ad
winistration and its prosecution of the war,
have not a single word to say against Jeff Da
vis and his bogus confederacy. A strange
sort of Union people are the Copperheads.
Tkn following post-offices in Pennsylvania

ilo, von HUMMELSTOWIT —A special train
will leave Harrisburg at a quarter before seven
u'eloek this (Thursday) evening, to convey
passengers to the Union meeting in H.urnmels
town. Returning, the train will leave there
before eleven o'clock. All who desire to at
tend the meeting should be at the Lebanon
Valk Depot in time for the train.. Let there
he a grand rally.
THE MECHANICSBURG Miss AIRETING.—The
people of the lower end of Cumberland
county are making "extensive preparations for
the grand Union mass meeting to be held in
Mechanicsburg to-morrow. Should the wea
ther be favorable, the processions from the
various townships will be immense. The
meeting will doubtless be the largest ever
held in the county.
THE PEOPLE WILL VOTE FOR FATHER ARRA-
Haat —Another vote WAS taken on the North
ern Central train from Baltimore, yesterday.
The following figures indicate the result:
Por Lincoln 41.3
For McClellan 79
Lincoln's majority 331
The above is reliable. The vote was taken
by Major Welsh, of the Second Ohio Cavalry.
REtURN OF TEE ONE HUNDRED DAYS' MEN.
—At an early hour this morning, the 194th
and the 195th Pennsylvania regiments arrived
'here. These regiments are composed of one
hundred days' men, whose term of service has
expired. In the 194th regiment are our Dau
phin county companies, made up principally
in this city. Their numerous friends tender
them a hearty welcome home. The regiments
proceeded to Camp Curtin, where they are en
camped, awaiting their discharge from the
service. Many of the men express a determi
nation to re-enlist immediately.
A DASTARDLY ACT-A Union .11an's Barn
Burnt by Copperheads. —The Huntingdon Jour
nal says that the barn of Mr. George Lang, in
Walker township, in that county, was burned
to the ground on Wednesday night last, to
gether with his entire stock of grain, which
had just been got in. There can be no doubt
that this has been the work of an incendiary.
There was a large Union meeting held at Mc-
Connellstown that evening, which Mr. Lang
had taken great pains to make a creditable
affair, being a strong Union man, and conse
quently the feeling against him, among the
copperheads infesting that township, was very
bitter. Shortly after the meeting was organ
ized the cry of fire was heard, and the barn,
about quarter of a mile distant, was discovered
to be wrapped in flames. The loss is a severe
one to Mr. Lang, and it is hoped that the per
petrators of this diabolical outrage will be
brought to justice. We are glad to state that
some of the most influential McClellan men
of that township, have come out boldly for
Lincoln since this outrage, and declare they
will support no party which resorts to such
Tax SOLDIER RETURNS FROM THE WAR.
Just as we were cogitating where we could
find a few items for a local this morning,
there was a tap at the sanctum &or, and to the
summons "walk in," in camas bronze faced,
straight, stalwart handsome-looking young
soldier, wreathed in smiles, as he stretched
torth his hand for a salutation and a " how
do you do ?" Well, what a surprise! As we
lived, there stood one of our devils, Lewis
W. Haber, just returned from the war.
Lewis became restive when the one hundred
days' men went out. Types, and rollers, and
presses lost their old charm in his eyes. He
wanted to go for a soldier. He was' strong
and ardent—but then we imagined him too
young, being less than sixteen years old.
Still the boy would go, and he was too brave
and good to be disappointed, and therefore,
with the consent of his friends, welet him
go. Re hasj ust been absent one hundred days.
In that time be was at the front under' fire, a
fact which renders him as proud as any of the
grenadiers that used to hold up their heads
and curl their mustaches when Napoleon
spoke of brave men. Thank God, the boy
returns to his home safe. What miscreant
dare talk of submission when America is
blessed with such sons 7
We had scarcely ceased our greeting of
Lewis, when another of his kind, a soldier
for his country, and the devil, in the German
department of the office, William Stephen,
came forward for a greeting. He, too, is
Young, handsome and brave; was also in the
front under Are, where he learned something
of the duty and danger of defending a coun
try that should be dear beyond all price to
the 'young men to whom it has given birth.
And IIQ he returns - safe to his old duties in
a9d Mesa the boys ! •
TEE loyal merchants of Pittsburg have de
termined to close their stores on the day when
we are to elect. a President of the United
States. Why should not the patriotic mer
chants of Harrisburg follow the example?
ANOTHER FALSEHOOD.—The Tory Organ of
last evening announces that a soldier was put
out of the Union meeting on Tuesday evening.
The person put out was an Irishman, residing
in the Ist ward, who never smelt gunpowder,
and was beastly drunk.
THE failure of Reverdy . Johnson to ap
pear in this city, last evening, Was explained
by the Tory Organ as owing to his sickness.--f-
This will do to tell the marines; but as Bever
dy Johnson is controlled entirely by mer
cenary considerations, we are inclined to
think that the managers of copperheadism in
this city, could not raise the amount required
by Johnson, to pay a two hours' speech.
PROM A HARRISBURG ARTIST ON A PROFES
SIONAL TOUR ns GREAT BRITAIN—The Example
of a Patriotic Adopted Citizen—He Defends the
Land of his Adoption in the face of its Bitter
est Enemies.—lt is with peculiar pleasure that
we print the following letter from our young
friend, Harry Davis, who is now on a profes
sional tour, with his great Panorama of the
Rebellion, through Great Britain. We com
mend the tone of Mr. Davis' letter to a class
of men in our own midst, and ask them to
profit by the lesson of his patriotism. The
people of this great country, when Mr.
Davis returns to the home of his adoption,
will not forget the sincerity of his devotion.
After having served our cause on the battle
field, it needed only this last test of his pa
triotism to give Harry Davis a' place in the
warmest affections of the American people.
We submit an extract from his letter as
ABERDAR, Oct. 15, 1864.
To W. H. H. SIEG, Esq.—Dear Sir:—Here I
am among the grand old mountains of Gla
morganshire. All the citizens of this county
speak the Welsh language, which, you know,
is my native tongue. My success here has
been great. Thousands crowd in to learn all
they can about America and the American re
bellion, from one, as they Well know, will tell
them the truth about American gffhirs. They
do not get the truth through the columns of
the newspapers, because the papers are
all Confederate or "rebel;" and these same
papers tell the people that my Panorama is all
one sided, all for the North and nothing for
the South. Now, Mr. Sieg, lam one of those
kind of persons who will always give the
"Devil his dne," and I have given the South
credit for more than its people ever deserved.
The reporters in my entertainment were quite
terrified when they heard me denouncing the
journals of this country, for advocating the
Southern cause so strongly. Some of the
"Big Bugs" in the audience looked daggers at
me; but thank God most of the hard working
men are in favor
. of the government of the.
United States, and whenthese working men
heard me tell of somo of the great victories of
the Northern army, they cheered until the large
hall echoed with their applause. They had
never heard of them through the columns of
the papers. I said to them that America was
to-day more prosperous than England, al
though America has had three years of war
and bloodshed, and had supported an army
of nearly one million of men. You can re
joice that the North has thousands of admir
ers among the rugged old mountain of Wales.
The inhabitants of this place listen with
great attention to what I have to say them.—
I find a great difference in the sentiment here
and m Monmouthshire. In Monmouth they
cheered loudly for Jeff Davis and hissed Lin
coln, and one of their leading gentlemen had
the impudence to make me a proposition from
the audience. What do you think it was ?
Well, the old chap got up and swelled out his
corporation and said, "Young man, yon are on
the wrong side; you advocate the cause of the
South and you will make ten shillings where•
you now make one." And others would sing
out, "If America is such a good country, why
did you leave it ?" To which. 'promptly replied
—to enlighten you on the war in America.

IS FRIENDSHIP BUT A NAME ?—Association
and the ties of consanguinity sometimes have
a ruinous control over the interests of indi
viduals. A case in point: Brother-in-law John
called in at brother-in-law James' store and
purchased a ladies' dress pattern, and a suit
of handsome cloth for self. Brother-in-law
James is asked by one who noticed that the
price is high, why he charges brother-in-law
John so much. Oh, says lames, I always
charge relations more. Honesty blushes at
transactions of this character, and the pu
rity of friendship becomes alarmed. The
safety of purchasers is largely protected in
making the acquaintance of stores where the
proprietor's ambition and pride is to sell at
lower prices than their honest competitors,
not, however, without making a living profit,
or through selling at wild prices to one and
less than cost to others. C. L. Bowman re
spectfully suggests his establishment to those
who are disposed to obtain dry goods at the
lowest cash market price. No. 1, cor. of Front

pleasure in adding my mite to the great mass
of testimony in favor of the great Ring of
Tau manufactured and sold by you. My
wife was afflicted with a severe rheumatism in
her right limb. It was so bad that she was
confined to her bed a great deal. I was in
duced to try for her your medicine. She has
applied one 2 dollar bottle and it has already
effected, great relief. I want another bottle,
- which I feel certain will bring about a perma
nent cure. It is but fair to add that my daugh
ter has been troubled a great deal with neural
gia in the face. She has used the same medi
cine for a few days and is completely cured.
The son of a neighbor of mine was very sick
with the intermittent fever. Nothing seemed
to help him. He used one bottle of your
medicine, and is now perfectly well again. „I
consider it'a great thing, and everybody ought
to have it Yours truly, GEORGE MANN.

TOWN _LOTS Irol SALE
THE PHILADELPHIA AND ERIE LAND
compA.NY, chartered by an act of the Legislature
of Pennsylvania, offers for sale choice lots for dwellings
and busineqs.parposes in the above new towns on the
line of the Philadelphia and Erie Railroad.
RENOVO has been selected as the site for the exten
sive shops for building and repairing the rolling Stock of
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 Erie. The town is beau
tifully situated on the margin of the west branch of the
Susquehanna river, in the county of Clinton, and is sur
rounded by romantic and attractive scenery. The Rail
road Company are erecting an immense Locomotive
Round House, Repair Shops for Cat's and Engines, Car
Building shop, hoe 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 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
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 water
works are nearly completed_ Churches will be erected
immediately. The situatjon of RENOVO is entirely
healthy, and as the dimeifaions of the town are limited
by nature, the value of the lots must appreciate greatly
in the course of a few years.
EMPORIUM will certainly be the most imperiant com
mercial point between Lock Haven and Warren, a dis
tance of 168 miles. It is near the eentre of the relined,
47 miles west of &novo ; 139 miles from Sunbury and
149 miles from Erie. It is near the Junction of the Drift
wood Branch of the Sinnemalonlog, with West Creek,
Portage Creek and North Creek, the Valleys of which
streams make It the most accessible point on the Phila
delphia and Erie railroad to a very extensive district of
country. The moment the projected railroad connecting
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, thereat 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 to the
public. The Railroad Company are about to erectahand
some and permanent Passsenger Station at a central point
near the Hotel and Court House. 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,
stone, bark for tanneries are abundant, and its
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 it a place of g reat 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
