causing a fracture of the skull, from the ef
fects of which he died next day.
PERSONAL. —Capt. Maloney, of the 201st
Pa. Vols., has been in this city, and left yes
terday, to rejoin his company, in Bedtord
county. The gallant Captain is looking well,
and appears to enjoy soldiering. He and his

DINNER AT THE SICK SOLDIERS' REST.—To
day the ladies prepared a magnificent dinner,
which was served up at the Sick Soldiers'
Rest, (near the depot,) and tendered the mem
bers of Captain B. 0. Cook's company of the
Second Battalion, Veteran Reserve Corps.
Everything that could add to the elegance of
the dinner, was found upon the table, and the
brave veterans prounounced it the most
sumptuous meal prepared for them since they
left their homes. About thirty members of
Captain Cook's company (including the gal
lant captain) and a few invited guests were
present. All had a pleasant time, and enjoy
ed the occasion to the fullest extent.
BEAUTIFUL PBESHNT TO A SABBATH SCHOOL
SUPERINTENDENT.—The Superintendent of the
Presbyterian Sunday School at Alexandria,
Huntingdon county, was the recipient of a
valuable Christmas present, in the shape of a
magnificent gold headed cane, of the finest
ebony, elaborately chased, the cost of
which was $36. It was purchased by the
leachers in the school, and presented to the
faithful superintendent as a token of their re
gard' for him. The following inscription was
engraved upon the head:
.p r es, -, rited by the Teachers of the Alexan
dria Presbyterian Sunday School, . to John
Porter, its within' Superintendent for thirty
six years. December 25, 1864."
The cane was manufactured by M. H. Lee,
No. 69 Market sireet, in this city. Mr. M.
has on hand, and manufactures to order, all
kinds of canes, and persons desiring to pre
sent a handsome gift tO their friends, should
give him a call.
DONATIONS TO A MINISTES.—Last evening a
pleasant surprise took place at the First Free
Baptist Church in this city. A meeting was
held for the annual election of officers, at
which Rev. W. G. Coulter was present. At
the close of the exercises, Rev. James Colder,
in behalf of his congregation, presented the
visiting minister, Mr. Coulter, with a well
filled purse, and a large quantity of groceries
and provisions. The recipient of the dona
tion is pastor of the Free Baptist Mission
at Manheim, Lancaster county, and as the
mission cannot yet pay a salary adequate to
the support of their minister, Mr. Colder's
congregation took advantage of the presence
of Mr. coulter, in this city, and gave him a
substantial evidence of their regard for him as
a minister of the gospel. The presentation
address of Mr. Colder was one of his happiest
efforts, and no doubt caused Mr. Coulter to
feel that he was in the midst of friends whose
benevolence was not confined to their own
congregation. Mr. Coulter was completely
overcome by the unexpected liberality of his
friends here, but finally replied in a few re
marks, expressing his gratitude for the very
acceptable free-will offering.
Tax Locrisix—Fbrmer/y Herr's
We direct attention to the advertisement
in another column, of William W. Reed &
Co., proprietors of the Lochiel, announc
ing the opening of that splendid estab
lishment. The building has been entirely
overhauled, every room having been repaint
ed and repapered, and the whole house re
furnished with suits of entirely new and mod
ern style furniture, so that the Lochiel
can new safely claim a place among the first
class houses in the country. The office for
the reception of guests, is actually one of the
finest of any hotel in the State; while the read
ing room adjacent is ample and well calcula
ted for the purpose to which it has -been de
voted. The dining room has also been great
ly improved, and the access to it is of the:
most private character for ladies, and conve
nient for gentlemen. In fact, without at
tempting to go into particulars, we must
f ran kly concede to the Lochiel all the
attractioils and all the accommodations of a
modern hoii.`3,. while we are confident the
proprietors will spare no effort calculated to
make this hotel thi - ; resort of the traveling
public doing business at - the State Capital.—
The senior member of this firm, Mr. Charles
H. Mann, has had great experience in this
line of business, while the junior, Mr. W. W.

DEATH OF A FORMER CITIZEN.—We learn
from the Erie Gazette that Mr. George S.
Whitehill, for many years a citizen of Harris
burg, was run over by a locomotive, last week,
in the city of Erie, and instantly killed. The
deceased stepped upon the track as the en
gine was approaching, and being very hard of
hearing, was not aware of his danger until
too late to avert it. He had been in the em
ploy of the Cleveland and Erie railroad com
pany, as a book-keeper, and was highly es
teemed. His funeral took place on Thursday,
the 22d inst., from the residence of his
brother4n-law. Mr. David Shirk.
WHO IS THE LEEKS' FATHER ?—The Fulton
Republican contains the following, from which
it would appear_ that a soldier in Capt. Malo
ney's companyhas been uncommonly fortu
nate: One of the soldiers of Company G, 201st
P. V., stationed at this place, receind word
on Monday last that his wife had, aAw days
previous, given birth to three children. He
immediately stated the facts to Capt. Malo
ney, commandant of the post, and asked for,
a furlough, that he might visit the new In
fantry brigade. The Captain, being an ex
tremely modest man, came near fainting on
hearing the facts above narrated, but speedily
recovering, granted the request. We think
the soldier should not only have a furlough,
but that he should receive a full discharge
and pension. We would suggest for the trio
the names of Sherman, Grant and Thomas.

C. A. Bkratvamr—Dear Sir: I have used Brown's
Bronchial Troches, Wistar's Lozenges, and
other preparations for hoarseness and throat
troubles, and, in comparisen with them all,
can cheerfully commend your own as a most
admirable specific for public speakers and
singers, in cases of hoarseness,onghs and
colds. I have found them serving in time of
need, most effectually.
Tours frilly, T. H. ROBINSON,
Pastor of N. S. Presbyterian Church.
I agree with Mr. Robinson as to the
value of liannvart's Troches.

Late Pastor of 0. B. Presbyterian Church.
14 R FBUSG, Jan., 1864
To C. A. BANNVART—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 theta very far superior to any
Lozenges that I have ever used, in removing
speedily that freakiness of the voice arising
from its too frequent use, and impairing the
effectiveness of the delivery of public addres
ses. Yours, &a.,
JNO. WALKER JACKSON,
Pastor of the Locust St. Methodist Church.
To C. A. EArixvear—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, ac., G. G. RAKESTRAW,

To C A. BANNvewr—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
