SzunAztthan.—On Saturday last a private
banker in Titusville closed his doors and va

IMPORTANT STATEMENT.--FTOM a speech of
Hon. William Whiting, Solicitor of the War
Department, we learn that up till Oct. let,
120,000 men had been furnished as volunteers
to fill quotas under the call for 500,000 men,
and that the draft has been successfully made
throughout the country. Its completion is
reliably expected to furnish all the men needed
to close the war. There are now in service
about 145,000 colored troops.
WE learn that at the recent session of East
Pennsylvania eldership of the Church of God,
held in Newburg, Cumberland county, Rev.
D. A. L. Laverty was re-appointed pastor of
the Fourth street Bethel in this city, for next
year. Rev. L. has given entire satisfaction
daring the past year, and his re-appointment
will be highly gratifying to his congregation
and our citizens generally.
We will publish a complete list of the ap
pointments as soon as a copy can be obtained.
THE APPOINTMENT OF A U. S. COMMISSIONER
FOR THE CITY OF HARBISBMIG.—CharIes A.
Snyder, Sr., has been appointed a United_
States Commissioner, to act in the city of
Harrisburg, for the hearing of all cases grow
ing out of the enforsements of the U. S Rev
enue Lime. The appointment is au admira
ble one, as Mr. S. has had great experience in
all such matters, and will make a most effi
cient officer. Aside from the fitness of the
appointee, we are gratified that a man so
bravely patriotic and so unswerving in his at
tachment to his Government should be thus
THE LAST GRAND RALLY ON THE EVE OF
THE GREAT CONTEST AT THE BALLOT . BOY.
The Bone and Sinew qt' the State Capital in
Counell—lininense Outpinering of the Perople.—
It was fitting that the eve of the election
whioh is to decide the existence of the Amer
ican nation, should be marked with a monster
demonstration by the people of the Capital of
the Keystone State in favor of the Government
and the Union. Accordingly the very largest
meeting held in the city of Harrisburg, du
ring the political campaign which closes to
day, was convened in the Court House last .
evening. The immense Court-room was
densely packed with the bone and sinew of
the city, with the men who make nations pros
perous and traitors quake; and such enthusi
asm, perhaps, was never displayed on any
like occasion, as was elicited by the speakers
General Simon Cameron called the meeting
to order, and moved the appointment of David
Mumma, as Chairman.
George Francis Train was then introduced,
and proceeded at once to the discussion of the
issues involved in the Presidential campaign,
tracing the connection of several of these with
the plots of European aristocracies to secure
the overthrow and destruction of the Ameri
can government and people. Mr. Train com
pletely exposed the objects and associations
of the men who controlled the Chicago Con
vention, That Convention was a British en
terprise entirely. Its paraphrenalia, its py
rotechnics, its publications and its platform,
were the productions of our old enemies the
English. Hence the inference, that Mr.
McClellan was the British candidate—a repre
sentative of the European aristocratic, combi
nation to break up the American Union, and
forever establish the failure of man's ability
for self-government. Mr. Train also showed
that while the Jew Belmont was acting as the
manager of the Democratic organization, he
was serving the highest interests of his Euro
pean masters. Democratic success would
crown slavery's triumph in erecting an
independent government in the Southern
States. That success would swell the gains
of the Rothchild's, whose agent Belmont is,
and who are the principal holders of Southern
Confederate securities. In this • way Mr.
Train argued, proving conclusively that Mr.
McClellan was the candidate for President
representing entirely the British interest in
the struggle, while Mr. Lincoln was alone
identified with the great interests and hopes
of the American Government. His speech
was a most powerful vindication of the policy
to maintain the Government on a basis:Of free
dom in opposition to the attempt of the slave
holders to detroy the system, and inaugurate
in its stead, a form of government deriving
its power entirely from the aristocracy of sla
very. ' We have no room further to sketch
Mr. Train'tispeech. Suffice it to write, that it
was eminently patriotic, and illustrated fairly
the European as well as the Atrial-Matt repu
tation of the orator.
II Bucher Swope, . Esq., of Clearfield
county, was next introduced, and made a
splendid speech. He was brief but eloquent,
and the manner in which he referred to the
M/Pertance of the issues involved in the Pres
idential campaign, made a deep impression
upon those present and will no doubt have a
good oil e d on the voters to-day.
Rev. Walker Jackson made a few brief
remarks, when the meeting adjourned With
cheers for the preservation of the .Union of
States and the success of the Union candi

the election, it has boon deemed proper to
postpone the regular monthly meeting of the
Y. hl. C. Association, until the 15th.
A CALL.- - Rei. S. R. S. Crallaudet, of West
minster, Md., and formerly pastor of the
Aberdeen Church, Mississippi, has received a
unanimous call from the Dickinson Church,
in Cumberland county.
SOLDIER KILLED.—A soldier named Levi
Alankin, of'the 10th Illinois regiment, was
killed at the depot, in this city, last night.
We are informed that he was standing on one
of the tracks, when an engine came along,
and although every effort was made to avoid
an accident, lelankin was knocked down, his
head badly bruised, and his body cut in two.
Of course he was instantly killed. He had
just been discharged from the U. S. service,
and was en route for home.
NEW MUSIC. - The .Matinee Waltz is the title
of a new piece of music just issued by Prof.
H. C. Orth, of this city. As a composer,
Prof. 0. has exhibited great ability in his
numerous elegant productions, and in the
present instance has fully maintained the rep
utation he so meritoriously won. The Mali
nee Waltz is pronounced, by the best judges,
to be an admirable piece of music, and it will
command an extensive sale. It can be ob
tained at the residence of Prof. 0., on Third
street, below Market.
MILITARY Exsirrtox.—On the 14th ultimo,
Peter Keff, a private in the Second Arkansas
Cavalry; was executed at Springfield, Mo., for
the murder and robbery of a citizen. He re
quested not to be pinioned or have the cap
drawn over his face. When the guards,
twelve of the Eighth Missouri, came to a
"shoulder arms," he saluted them, opening
his vest, and standing erect in the position of
a soldier, met his fate fearlessly. Five balls
pierced his breast, and he died almost in
stantly, without pain.
RAILROAD ACCIDENT—Man Killed—The Pi tts
burg Gazette of yesterday says:
"A serious railroad collision occurred on
the Pennsylvania Railroad, a short distance
east'of Greensburg, at half-past two o'clock
this morning. A freight train was proceeding
at the usual rate of speed, down grade, when
a coupling broke, thus cutting the train in
two. The engineer proceeded some diStance
before he could check up, and after he had
stopped a short time the rear section of the
train, which had been left.behind, came down
with such an impetus that a serious collision
was the result. Several cars were badly
smashed, the track torn up for a considerable
distance, and one man killed, whose name we
did not learn.
The passenger train due here at half-past
one o'clock this morning was delayed several
hours in consequence of the obstruction to the
track, and did not reach the city until nearly
seven o'clock. The train left Harrisburg on.
time, but was so heavily laden with passengers
that there was considerable trouble with the
journals heating. The engine also gave out,
and another had to be procured, so that the
train was considerably behind time before
reaching the wrecked freight train."
GEORGE FRANCIS TRAIN AT BILETLIN.—A gen
tleman who reached Harriburg in the 1:30 P.
train from the West, yesterday, gave us the
particulars of a most disgraceful affair which
occurred at Mifflin, yesterday morning. It ap
pears that a dispatch had been received from
Lewistown that Mr. Train was a passenger on
the cars, and that the Union men of Mifflin
should be present at the depot to give the distill
guished.orator a passing greeting. Immediate
ly on the reception of the dispatch, the Union
men of Mifflin began to prepare to meet Mr -
Train, and, while this preparation was in pro .
gress, an unusual activity was noticed amov,g
the copperheads of the place. When the train
arrived a large crowd of people were gathe7:ed
at the depot at Mifflin. Colonel John J. ;Qat
terson introduced Mr. Train to the pecple.
The speaker said he had no time to indult le in
extended remarks, and therefore merely . re
ferred to the importance of the great political
struggle in which we were involved, and. then
asked all those who were in favor of hal,ring a
President who would be controlled by Amer
ican influence to say `ZES--alter the first vote
had been taken, those in favor of a Chief
Magistrate to be controlled by ?British
influence could also say YES. This .excited
the ire of the copperheads who. were
present, and they at once set up a flume howl
for McClellan. These men certainly gathered
at the depot resolved to insult Mr. Train An
Er-District Atterney, and a soldier wh o was
dishonorably discharged from the arm y led
the disturbance ; while a hoary-headed old
copperhead, who had knelt at the Sacra ment
Table last Sunday thus professing love for all
mankind, exhibited in his violence tovards
Mr. Train, the utter hypocrisy of his cant as
well as the foulness of his treason. From all
we have heard of the affair, it was the most
brutal exhibition of blackguardism on record
against the Democratic leaders and their ig
norant followers. But Mr. Train gave each
bully a Roland for his slang Oliver, by admin
istering the most scathing rebuke to the black
guards. These are the men who are constant
ly talking about the liberty of speech,

line of the Philadelphia and Erie Itiffiroad.
RENOVO has been selected as the site for the exten
sive shops for building and repairing • the rolling stock of
the Philadelphia and :Die Railroad, of which the Penns.
Railroad Company are now lessees It Is 92 miles west of
Sunbury, and 196 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 as immense Locomotive
Round House, Repair Shops for. Cars 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. Ail these buildings are of the most permanent
and substantial character, of brick and iron, and are in
accordance with the irn mense business anticipated on the
completion of this great Railroad, so long anxiously
looked for, and now an accomplished fact—the het 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 situation of RENOVO is entirely
healthy, and: as the dimension& 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 important com
mercial point teetween Lock Havre and Warren, a dis
tance of 158 miles. It is near toe (entree of the railroad,
47 miles west of Renevo; 139 miles from Sunbury and
149 miles front Erie. It la near the Junction of the Drift
wood Branch of the Sinnemahoning, with West Creek,
Portage Creek and North Creek, the Valleys of which
streams make it the most accessible point on the Phlle
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 Juatice 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 erect &hand
some and eat Passsenger Station at a central point
near the tel 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,
lumber, 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 developmeat so entirely that it is mainly known for
the excellence of hunting and trout fishing in the vicinity.
