the proprietor, is determined, to render the
Buehler House one of the first-class hotels in
the city, and all who desire a home during

admirable stopping place.
Irt Toww.—Our old friend, Richard Wildey,
formerly the Representative of the 12th Legis
lative District, Philadelphia, was in town this
morning, looking as pleasant and as hand
some as ever. But all this is accounted for
by his Republicanism—Richard being one of

ANOTHER FATAL SHOOTING CASE .--A Sol
dier Killed al /he Invalid Barracks.—We are
called upon to chronicle another fatal acci
dent resulting from the use of fire-arms. The
veterans' at the barracks ,on Second street
have, exchanged their old guns for Enfield
rifles, and yesterday the pieces received were
thoroughly cleaned. One of the men placed
a cap on the tube for the purpose of blowing
the dust out of - his gun, which happened to
be loaded. The contents were discharged, the
bullet passing through a bunk, entered the
thigh of Sergeant Fay, (who was near by,)
and passing upward through his body, came
out at his neck. Death ensued last night, and
Sergeant Fay is added to the long list of those
who have been killed "accidentally." The
fact that the gun was loaded is evidence of
grows carelessness on the part of the ordnance
depatment, where every piece should be kept
in gooLl order and ready for use. Had the
arms bey tt properly attended to, their con
tents woURI have been extracted, and Ser
geant Fay would not now be numbered with

A AbENNONITE WEDDING took place at Lail?
caster, .on Sunday last. To those of the
audience who were never present at a wedding
of members of this denomination, the affair
was novel and interesting. The sermon was
appropriate s to the occasion. The preacher read
from the 3d to the 10th verses of the 19th chap
ter of Matthew, and from: the 22d verse to the
end of the sth chapter of Ephesians, basing his
remarks on these passages of scripture. The
whole discourse was devoted to the duties of
the candidates for matrimony to each other,
and their spiritual relations to "Christ, the
head of the Church." At the conclusion of
the regular exercises, the marriage rite was
performed in front of the pulpit. The bride
groom was asked whether he believed this
sister of his faith was allotted by Christ to be
his wife, and whether he was free form all
other women persons. Affirmative answers
being given, similar questions were put to the
bride and answered. The usual questions
were then put and answered, when the twain
were pronounced man and wife.. The manner
of bringing about marriages betweet the mem
bers of this denomination differs from that of
other Christians. What is called "courting"
is done by their preachers, the candidates for
matrimonial honors not being allowed to visit
the object of their affections. Wh en a broth
er wishes to take to himself one of the sisters
as a wife, the fact is communicated to the
pmeher, who makes known 'to the sister the
feelings of this brother, and if no objections
be made on her part, the bans are published
in church and the wedding takes place in due

EDITOR TELEGRAPH—I am pleased to find
in to-day's TELEGRAPH a denial of the charges
made by the minor, Martin, of Capt. Fenn's
company, in regard to the manner in which
the elections were held in the 201st, in No
vember last, at Manassas Junction. As one
of the judges of company I, it may not be
amiss to state that all persons voting on age,
or who did not produce a tax receipt for the
current year, were sworn,, or ailirnaed, regard.
less of party. Martin's article (or; rather, the
communication of which he assumed the re
sponsibility by lending his signature) was as
jibnoxious to every honorable politician of
'Bither party as it was unblushingly false and
uncalled for. Capt. Fenn's exposition of the
case is correct, and we would rather pity than
censure Martin for the part he has taken in
this lying affair, for he was made the dupe of
a pair of individuals who had neither the
courage nor the manhood to paternize the
falsehood they invented. Capt. Fenn's time

from contradicting this and similar copper
head inventions, traducing the victorious
We received, per morning's mail, the re
mainder of the photographs representing
(truthfully) our Gainesville shebangs. The
pictures are correct, life-like and satisfactory,
in every respect. The fact of reprodncirtg a

Fred. Douglass, the celebrated colored lec
turer, held forth in Liberty Hall, Cameron
street, last evening. This was his second or
third lecture here; and the vast assemblage
was dismissed with shouts of 'applause. This,
too, in Alexandria, where slave-pens and auc
tion-blocks for the .disposal of negro slaves
are yet to be seen. "Whither are we drift
ing ?" inquired the copperhead journals be
fore the result of the Presidential election
was known. Whither ? To freedom and
greatness—the signs of the times prove it, be
yond the shadow of a doubt.
Last evening Sergeant Saul, of company B,
who has charge of the city patrol, made a de
scent upon a house of ill-fame, in Railroad
street. They captured three white and one
colored woman, and two men, and carried
them—the females—to the Provost Marshal's
office, and the men to the guard-house. This
morning the party had a hearing before Cap
tain Gwin, of the Court Martial Board.
What disposition was made of this depraved
party I could not learn up to the hour of
closing my letter.
Several steamers went down the river, at
12 at., filled with reinforcements for Grant,
it was alleged. They were a portion of the
6th Army Corps, and embarked at Washing

" There is no plriee like home,"
there is also nothing to compare with the deli
cacies and "fixings" that come from there.
In looking over my loose papers and notes
by-the-way, I found the following, "picked up"
a day or two before we left Manassas.
About one-fourth of a mile from camp'(l4la
nassas Junction) may be seen a square block
of marble, lying fiat on the ground, and on
which is the following inscription
This marble marks the spot where fell
George F. Stoval, of the Rome Light Guards,
Bth Regiment Georgia Volunteers, in the battle
of July- 21st, 1861. Born at Augusta, Georgia,
April 7th, 1835, his life he devoted to his God,
and sacrificed it in his country's defence. His
last words were, am going to Heaven "
We sincerely hope the words uttered by the
dying Georgian were realized in the consum
mation of his entrance into the realms of
bliss. Yet the delusion of sacrificing life and
limb, and honor and manhood, in the vain
effort to establish a Southern Confederacy,
was, nevertheless, a part of that creed, doc
trine and religion, from which many of his
people and kindred are fast dissenting, at this
stage of affairs in the South. The block of
marble referred to was pretty well "chipped,"
and broken by acts of vandalism, from visi
tors, who carried off the pieces for mementoes,
no doubt. •
Permit me to return my sincere thanks to

BURNING SPRING OIL COMP,INP.—We would
invite attention to the prospectus of this com
pany, appearing in our advertising columns
for the first time to-day. The immense Value
of the Burning Spring Oil District M. which
the lands of this company are located, and the
large extent of boreable territory which it
controls, seem to warrant us in recommend
ing it to those seeking investment of the char
acter which it offers. We are well aware that
many fictitious organizations are flooding the
country with worthless stock, but from what
we have been able to learn of the resources
and objects of this company and the charac
ter of the men who control its operations, we
feel assured that we are not recommending a
'speculative concern," but a sound, substantial
oil company, which, if managed as we have
reason to believe it will be, cannot fail to pay
large dividends to its stockholders at a very
early day. See advertisement in another

HARRISBURG, Feb. Bth, 1864.
C. A. Barmy Asfr—Dear Sir: I have used Brown's
Bronchial Troches, Wistar's Lozenges, and
other preparations for hoarseness and throat
troubles, and, in comparison with them all,
can cheerftilly commend your own as a most
admirable specific for public speakers and
singers, in cases of hoarseuees, coughs and
colds. I have found them serving in time of
need, most effectually.
Yours truly, T.R. ROBINSON,
Pastor of N. S. Presbyterian Church.
Or" I agree with Mr. Robinson as to the
value of Bannvart's Troches.
W. C. CATTELL,
Late Pastor of 0. S. Presbyterian Church.
Hsarnantran, Jan., 1864
To C. A. BA.teivaar--Dear' sir: In the habit
of speaking very frequently, and in places
where the vocal organs are very much taxed,
I ave found the need of some gentle expec
torant, and that want, has been supplied in
your excellent Troches.
I consider them very far superior to any
Lozenges that I have ever used, in removing
speedily that huskiness of the voice arising
from its too frequent use, and impairing the
effectiveness of the delivery of public addres
ses. Yours, &c.,
JNO. WALKER JACKSON,
Pastor of the Locust St. Methodist Church.
To 0. A- BANNVART—Dear Sir : Having used
your Troches, I am free to say they are the
best I have ever tried, and take great pleasure
in recommending them to all persons afflicted
with sore throat or huskiness of voice, arising
from public speaking or singing.
Yours, &c., G. G. RAKESTRAW,
Pastor of Ridge Avenue Methodist Church.

Hercamainio, Feb, 29, 1864.
To C A. BANNVAET—Dear Sir: I have found
your Troches to be invaluable in relieving
hoarseness and in strengthening the muscles
of the throat. ' They impart clearness to the
voice, and arc certainly of great benefit to all
