TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMGER 27, 1864.
TOWN AND COUN TRY.
BEnIND TIME. —Owing to some cause, many
o f the railroad trains have been behind time
for several days past.
QVERY ?—Do the rebel sympathizers in our
w id s t believe that Sherman has captured
savannah? Do they believe that Hood has
been whipped? Do they believe that the
confederacy " is about " played out? "
We invite attention to the advertisement of
the IMPERIAL OIL COMPANY. From a careful
e xamination of the affairs of the same;we feel
satisfied that it will be a paying concern. The
Stock will eertainly.belt valuable investment.
IMPERIAL OM COMPANY.--Thistoneern owns
valuable property in the oil region. The man
auers are well and favorably known, and capi
talists can therefore satisfy themselves as to
the merits of the enterprise. This, it will be
seen, is a prodticing company, paying divi
(lends from the start.—North American. •
COAL SHIEWICNTS FROM PENNSYLVANIA. —The
amount of coal shipped from the Pennsylva
nia coal regions, from the Ist of January to
December 24th, 1864, was 10,198,832 tons.
During 1863, for the same period, 9,736,433
tons were shipped, , making an increase of
452,399 tons. •
Coarima.ts has come tt'f f A* ne. Palling on
Sunday, its observance as very quiet. Ser
mons appropriate to the occasion were deliv
ered in all the churches, and the congrega
tions were large. • Collections were taken for
various worthy objects, and the contributions
are said to have been quite liberal.
Persons who were not content with a ;Sun
day observance of Christmas, devoted yester
day to that object, and feasted upon turkey
and other rich edibles.
There was a generalinterchange of presents
tuaong friends, and the usual greetings of the
DEATH OF JOSEPIL B. Moorms.--We regret
to learn of the death' of Joseph B. Mooney,
which occurred at" Annapolis, a few days ago.
Deceased was an honored member of the
Seventh Pennsylvania Reserves,t;and was cap
tured by the rebels in an engagement many
months ago. Like thousands of other brave
men who were confined in the filthy rebel
prisons, the subject of - this notice contracted
chronic diarrhcea, which reduced him to a
mere skeleton. He was very recently ex
changed and brought to Annapolis: where
death terminated his sufferings. His remains
will be interred at Mechanicsburg, Ctirober
laud county. Deceased was a son of the late
Rev. William Mooney, of the Church of God.
SAMPLE LETTER. TO A 'MEMBER OF CONGRESS.
—The following letter, which is published
verbatim, will give our readers an idea of
what kind of labor members of Congress are
sometimes called on by their constituents to
"Will you please to inquire in the atent
office for me for a patent rat trap that goes by

12 rats at one running down & thin has to be

"4t thus oblige yours"
Tax GREAT Sena of captured cattle, at York,
which commenced on Monday last, is still in
progress, under the supervision of E. O. Park
hurst, special Government agent. The prices
realized were generally low. The proceeds of
Friday's sale amounted to over $60;000. Sixty
four head of cattle were sold on that day, and
six hundred and sixty-eight head of sheep.
The latter were sold in lots of twenty, the first
lot bringing at the rate of $l2 50 per head,
and the last $6 05. The average sale of sheep
was at about $5 75 per head. About 200 head
of cattle were sold on Saturday, and the re
mainder of the entire lot will be disposed of
this week, when it is expected a large number
of farmers, from different parts of the State,
will be present. The largest purchasers thus
far are from Lancaster and Dauphin counties
Ir will, doubtless, interest both the venders
and consumers of whiskey to learn that a bill
km passed both houses of Congress increas
ing the duty, after the first of January, to two
dollars per gallon. The law does not tax the
stook on hand, applying only to liquor manu
factured after the time stated, so that those
who are lucky enough to have a large stock
laid in will make a big thing of it. With corn
and rye at their present rates and a duty. of
two dollars per gallon on whisky, the old to
pers who have been in the habit of punishing
ten or fifteen "horns" of liquor every day,
will have to fall back on "lager," or some
other cheap stimulant. A quarter a drink will
be about the figure for "Old Monongahela"
hereafter, and at this price one of your steady
drinkers would not be long in guzzling down
a small fortune. We may expect, of course,
more adulteration, • and an increase in the
deaths from whisky, already so alarmingly
YMITOIEtte., CONVENTIOX.OLLO of the
Reading papers has --
" We have heard nothing of editorial con
vention for some time past, and would sug
gest that one be held in Reading on the 17th
of January next, for the benefit of the pre;
fession. Our experience teaches us that if
the profession would stand up for its rights,
they would be readily granted by the commu
nity, who always measure a man by the esti
mate he places upon himself. Judging by
this standard, there must be some men edit
ing papers in some of our neighboring towns,
and dailies at that, who have but a poor
opinion of the sheets they issue; otherwise
they would charge living prices for advertis
ing, notices, &o. We can't come down to their
prices without runnin' g the risk of starvation.
Let na, then, have a convention, to fix a rate
of prices by which all can stand: " •
Dries TO Tin INVALID .COBPS ON SATUS
DAY, DPCSNIBER 31ST, 1864.—As it is impossi
ble to have the Invalid Corps partake of the
'Christmas Festival at Camp Curtin Hospital,
the ladies intend getting up a dinner on Sat
urday, the 31st of December, 1864, expressly
for those brave men, who certainly 'clOeive
our sympathy and regard; for they have, also,
become partially disabled in the service of
their country. We call upon all patriotic
and liberal citizens of Harrisburg, and the
farmers in the vicinity, to'aid us in our en

Exisosrori or A Cos.-Om
accident, caused by the_ explosion of a coal
oil lamp, occurred, a few nights ago, at the
residence of Thomas P. Campbell, Esq., in.
Huntingdon. While the family were sitting
in the room, the light from the lamp began
flickering as is sometimes its wont, (caused
by the wick being to short or not saturated
sufficiently with oil,) whereupon Capt. J. D.
„Campbell approached to the lamp for the pur
pose of extinguishing the flame, when the fire
communicated with the oil, which instantly
exploded in the Captain's face. The oil upon
the Captain's hair, face and shoulders becom
ing ignited, it *as with difficulty the fire could
.be quenched, and not until his hair had been
totally burned and his face dreadfully scorched
that a bucket of water dashed upon his per
son prevented further• injury. Other mem
bers of the family were slightly burned, and
the ail spilled upon the floor being on fire was
making rapid headway in destroying the car
pet, but the flames were soon extinguished.—
A child sleeping in a cradle in the room was
rescued by a gentleman before any injury was
inflicted upon it.

Dr. Rand's Specific.
The oldest and most reliable medicine for
the cure of Spermatorlicert, , Seminal Weakness,
Loss of Power &c. This medicine has stood
the test of over thirty years, and has always
proved a success.
Dr. RAND'S SPECIFIC is exhibited in the
form of pills, made up entirely of substances
that have a specific effect upon the generative
organs. Most persons associate the idea of
operations upon the bowels from taking any
kind of pills. The Sprzmw of Dr. Rand is
not intended as an evacuating medicine. Its
medicinal virtues are expended entirely upon
the impaired regenerative organs. The pills
are not unpleasant to the taste, and many
persons masticate them with impunity before
swallowing them ; which plan we would al
ways recommend, as affording the speediest
way to get the effect of the remedy.

Henmsnuao, Feb. 8th,1864.
C.A. RksarvAnr-Dear Sir: I have used Brown's
Bronchial Troches, Wistar's Lozenges, and
other preparations.for hoarseness and throat
troubles, and, in compariseu with them all,
can cheerfully commend your own as a most
admirable specific for public speakers and
singers, in cases of hoarseness, coughs and
colds. I have found them serving in time of
need, most effectually.
• Yours truly, T. H. ROBINSON,
Pastor of N. S. Presbyterian Church.
WI agroo with Mr. Robinson as, to the
value of Bannvart's Troches. •
W. C. CATTELL,
Late Pastor of 0. 8. Preabyterian Church.
ELssaimatate, Jan., 1864
To C. A. BANavanr—Dear Sir: In the habit
of speaking very frequently, and in places
where the vocal organs are very much taxed,
I have found the need of some gentle expec
torant, and that want ,has -been , supplied in
your excellent Troches.
I consider them vary 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=
JNO. W A LICRR JACKSON.
Pastor of the Locust'lit. Methodist Church.
To O. A. Bernivenr---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 tn all persons afflicted
with sore throat or huskiness ofvoice, arising
from public speaking or singing.
'Yours, &d., G. G. RIKESTRAW,
Pastor of Ridge Avenue Methodist Church.
HAERDWORG, Feb, 29, 1864.
To C A. BAruivAni—Dear Sir: ,I have found_
your Troches to be invaluable in relieving

of the throat. They impart clearness to the
voice, and are certainly of great benefit to all
public speakers. A. J. HERR.
