A Nsw BRASS BAND. —We learn, with plea
sure, that a brass band has been organized in
our city, the membership being composed of
a number of our best citizens. The want of
such a band in our midst has o: various oc
casions put our citizens to considerable in
convenience. When it was necessary to have
good music it had to be brought from a dis
tance, and at great expense. Now that an or,
ganization has been effected here, we trust
that the new band will be liberally patronized,
and its permanency secured.
A. social soiree will be givenfor the benefit
of the " New Harrisburg Brass Band," on
Monday evening next, at the hall of the Ein

SALE or CAPTURED STOLE.—The Government
sale of captured stock, which commenced in
this city on Tuesday, closed yesterday, the
entire lot—about six hundred head—having
been disposed of. The animals were very
thin, and did not present an attractive ap
pearance, and the inclement state of the wea
ther on Tuesday and yesterday caused them
to look even worse than at any other time;
consequently they did not sell at as high a
figure on those days as on Wednesday. There
was an excellent sale on the last named day.
On the whole, the Government realized good
prices. The total sum received from the sale
amounted to between $lO,OOO and $ll,OOO.
Great credit is due Mr. Parkhurst, the Gov
ernment agent, for his untiring efforts to effect
a good sale. He succeeded beyond all ex
pectation, and has proven himself to be the
"right man in the right place."
PRESIDENT PETROLEUM COMPANY.—The fol
lowing extract from a letter written by C. M.
Morse, Esq., of Oil city, gives some interest
ing statements in relation to the character
and value of the lands owned by the above
company, whose advertisement will be found
in another column :
'From personal examination, I am more
than ever convinced of the immense value of
the President Lands, commonly known as
the Hemlock Creek property. There is about
eight thousand four hundred acres, including
three Islands, (in the Allegheny river,) with
nearly three miles of river front, and over
seven miles of creek valley, suitable for bore
ing for oil. There are now two wells being
bored on'the lower end of the river territory,
by the Heydrick Brothers, on this property,
adjoining the celebrated Heydrick well, which
has already produced over thirty thousand
barrels of oil, and Mr. Heydrick told me yes
terday that he has struck a large vein of oil
on the President property. I have spent
ranch time in examining these lands, and
have not the least doubt but large' quantities
of oil will be the result of proper develop
L 0. OF 0. FF. OF THE STATE OF PENNEY:INA
NIA.—The annual session of the Grand Lodge
was held on Tuesday morning at 0 o'clock,
at the Hall, in Philadelphia. IL W. Grand
Master, Wm. H. Trinnick, occupied the chair.
The semi-annual reports of the R W. Grand
Master and the R. W. Deputy Grand Master
were read, and it was shown that the Inde
pendent Order of Odd Fellows is now in a
most flourishing condition in Pennsylvania.
A lengthy report of the proceedings of the
Grand Lodge of the United States was read
by Grand Representative J. Alexander Simp
son, which showed that the Order is increas
ing in strength and usefulness throughout the
United States. Numerous amendments to
the Constitutions of the Grand 'ma subordi
nate Lodges were introduced and laid over to
the session in May next, for action. The sub
ject of the institution of an Orphan's Home
for a refuge for the destitute children of de
ceased Odd Fellows was introduced and laid
over to the May session, for action.
The following nominations were then made
for Grand Lodge officers, to serve during the

THE Wzaxann.—We are haying an abund
ance of rain, by way of a change. The
snow has disappeared, and mud—mud—mud
—meets Toil at every turn.
TWENTY notorious counterfeiters of Govern
ment currency, two of whom are women, ar
rived in Washington, on Thursday, from the
west, in charge of an officer, and were com
mitted to the Old Capitol Prison. These per
sons are said to be the leaders of gangs who
have made Ohio, Indiana, lowa and Missouri
the principal fields of their operations. With
these counterfeiters were seized presses,
plates, and a large quantity of material used
i 4 the manufacture of these base issues; • and
it is thought that by these captures the nefa
rious business in the States named has been
pretty completely destroyed.
Tneanco DOWN POSTERS. Some steps should
be taken to prevent the boys of the city from
tearing down bills and posters after the man
ner they now practice. Bills, which have cost
the party getting them out from five to ten
dollars a hundred, are hardly dry before some
mischievous ragamuffin comes along, and
having nothing better to do, proceeds to tear
them down, yet we never hear of one of the
offenders being arrested. The police should
keep an eye on this business, and do some
thing to prevent the malicious destruction of
posters now so common. There is a law
against the tearing down or mutilation of bills
of this character, and it ought to be enforced.
ELOPEMENT .IN HIGH LIFE. —The Lancaster
Express says that a young lady of that city
left home a few days ago, under circumstances
which leave no doubt but that she eloped.
When her family, arose on the morning of her
departure, they found a note on a table, bid
ding "good-bye" to "father and mother," and
signed by their daughter's name. On exam
ination it was found that the young lady's
clothing had also disappeared. Since then
no clue to her whereabouts, or the course:she
took, has been obtained by her anxious pa
rents. She is of a highly respectable family,
and nothing in her conduct before this event
has left room to conjecture her motives in
taking this step.
USELESS YOUNG LeofF.s.—A cotemporary
thus seriously speaks of that very large class
of useless young ladies who glory in being
above useful employment:
"The number of idle, useless girls in all our
large cities, seems to be steadily increasing.
They lounge or sleep through their mornings,
parade the streets during the afternoon, and
assemble in frivolous companies of their own
and the other sex to pass away their evenings.
What a store of unhappiness for themselves
and others are they laying up for the coming
time, when real duties and high responsibili
ties shall be thoughtlessly assumed. They
are skilled in no domestic duties—nay, they
despise them; they have no habit of industry
nor taste for the useful. What will they be
as wives and mothers ? Alas for the husbands
and children, alas for themselves ! Who can
wonder if domestic unhappiness and domestic
ruin follows ?"
A DONATION PANSY IN CONTEMPLATION.—WO
heard, casually, this morning, that the mem
bers of the Locust Street M. E. Church, had
resolved to give the Rev. J. Walker Jackson
the highly deserved compliment of a donation
visit, Tuesday evening being fixed for the
affair. The idea which suggested this visit,
is the fact that Rev. Jackson's salary has
never been increased to keep pace with the
expenses of living in these times. While the
members of Rev. Jackson's church do not
feel as if they could permanently increase the
salary of their pastor, they are also unwilling
that he should be compelled to meet the
stringency of the money market, without the
pecuniary aid at their hands which he has so
fairly earned by his zeal and his influence as
a man and a pastor.
—We feel an interest in this contemplated
donation visit, which we are certain is shared
by the great majority of the people of Harris.
burg, because Rev. Jackson has entitled him
self to the affections and the confidence of
others besides those of his immediate congre
gation. Hence, we candidly recommend that
all who can appreciate a good man, an honest
Christian and a patriot, join in the donation
to Rev. Jackson. Let him feel that he is ap
preciated. Let him see that his labors have
resulted not only in making friends for his
country, but in eliciting friendship for him
self. There is not a man or woman in Har
risburg but can fittingly and appropriately
make a liberal donation to Rev. Jackson, and
feel that it is but a reciprocity for services
rendered as a Christian preacher and a fearless
Mem-A-Pow. —There never was a time when
Mani-a-potu wks so prevalent among drinkers
as now. Whether this is owing to the quality
of the liquor, or the quantities in which it is
consumed, is not stated, but certain it is that
more cases of this terrible malady have been
developed within the last three months than
during the previous year. The greatly in
creased price of liquors, under the new Inter
nal Revenue law, forbids the idea that there
is more of it drank than before, so that it can
only be through the adulteration of the liquors
now in use, that this increased tendency to
mani-a-potu on the part of intemperate men
can be accounted for. The commonest kind of
whisky brings more per gallon by the barrel
now, than the purest old rye sold for before
the war, and as ten cents per drink is the
ruling price at most of our bars, there mulct
be adulteration to afford dealers in the article
anything like the large profits which they are
reported to make. This admitted, and the
increase of mane-a-patu is easily accounted
for. A strong, healthy man might go on for
a long time drinking pure liquor, and yet re
tain his reason, but let him try it with the
villainous compounds now sold under the
name of liquor, and he will soon find the
"man with the poker" after him hard and
fast. Those, then, who have been in the
habit of indulging too freely, had better pause
in their career ere it is too late. Adulterated
liquor, such as is now dealt out in most of our
bars, is but little better than poison, and the
man is wisest who shuns its use altogether.

ALEXANDER RAMSES, ESQ , SENATOR FROM

incident which occurred tweuty-five j L 9.13
since, in our old Court House, at Harrisburg,
was lifted this morning, in our memory, by
observing our old townsman, Alexander Ram
sey, Esq., who is making a flying visit to our
city. The event to which we refer was his
nomination for Congress by the workingmen
belonging to the old Whig party, (notwith
standing a protest, written on Sunday, by a
prominent legal gentleman, a member of the
convention.) The Senator's consistent political
course and untiring zeal in advocating the
workingmen's interest, will go far in account
ing for his great success and the enviable posi
tion he now occupies. Success to self-made
men, which reminds us of the extraordinary
exertion that is being made to procure and

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 mu
rounded by romantic and attractive scenery. The Rail
rOad Company are erecting an immense Locomotive
Rpund 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 arrangementsifor 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 situation of RENOVO is entirely
healthy, and as the dimensions of the town are limited
by nature, the valve of the lots must appreciate greatly
in th,p course of a few years.
EMPORIUM will certainly be the most important com
mercial point between Lock Haven and Warren, a dis
tance of 158 miles. It is near the eentre of the railroad,
41 miles west of Renovo ; 139 miles from Sunbury and.
149 miles from Erie. It is near the Junction of the Drift
wood Branch of the Sinnemahoniog, with West Creek,
Portage Creek and North Creek, the Valleys of which
streams mate 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 excellentgradid road now connects it
with Coudersport, the seat of Justice of Potter county.
It is also connected with Smethport, the 'mat 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 erect a hand
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,
lumber, stone, bark for tanneries are abundant, and iis
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 gut 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 great importance as a distri
buting point for goods of all kinds, and it offers great
advantages fur persons of moderate capital who desire
to identify themselves with the early history of a thriv
