FINE WEATHER.—The weather for the last few
days has been fine as silk, and we have had some
difficulty in persuading ourself that we are not in
the middle of May, instead of the last of Febru
ary. The blue-birds are here, however, and they
are always the harbingers of spring. An old
adage has it that if March comes in like a lion it
goeth out like a lamb—and vice verea. If so we
may be called upon to pay up yet.
TEN STAMPEDE TO WASHINGTON.—Patriots from
North and South, East and West, are 'hurrying to
Washington to pay their respects to the incoming
President, and to grind a few axes upon their own
private account. At the Capital, as well as else
where, much depends upon appearances, and the
wisest thing each and every of these pilgrims to
the seat of power can do, k to first stop at the
Brown Stone Clothing Hall of Rockhill it Wilson,
Nos. 603 and 605 Chesnut street, above Sixth,
Philadelphia, and procure for themselves new, com
fortable and elegant outfits.
WHY no ANIMALS NEED SALT?—Prof. James E.
Johnson, of Scotland, says : "Upwards of half the
saline of the blood (57 per cent.) consists of com
mon salt; and as that is partly discharged every
day throughout the skin and the healthy body,
lecomes sufficiently obvious. The bile also con
tains soda (one of the ingredients of salt) as a
special and indispensable constituent, and so do all
the cartilages of the body. stint the supply of
salt, therefore, and neither will the bile be able
properly to assist digestion, nor the:cartilages to
be built up again as fast as they naturally waste."
It is better to place salt where stock can have
free access to it, than to give it occasionally in
large quantities. They will help themselves to
what they need, if allowed to do so at pleasure;
otherwise, when they become "salt hungry," they
may lake more than It Etlid:l6MM.
OFFICE-Hurrrans.—The lean and hungry appli_

faith to the signatures of the members and Sena

warm like crows around carrion, and the pages of
loth Houses are running from morning till night

devil, no doubt, leaves with a heart beating high

OBITUARY.—We aro called upon this morning to
chronicle the demise of one of our most respects..
ble citizens, who has been prominently before the
people of the State for the last quarter century.
THOMAS L. WILSON quietly breathed hie last, after
a long and painful illness, in the 61st year of his
age, at his residence yesterday morning.
Mr. Wilson was a native of Philadelphia, where
he learned the printing business, and worked at
it eotemporary with Simon Cameron, Judge Lewis,
James Peacock, Gen. Rogers, Hugh Maxwell, and
a few others whose names have become closely
identified with the history of 11,3 State,
At an early age he left Philadelphia, and settled
in Lynchburg, Virginia, from which place he came
to the capitol of his native State in 1837. The
Canal Board of the succeeding year elected him
its Secretary—a position which he held, with but
one year's intermission, up to the time the Legis
lature abolished the Canal Department, in 1859.
During this long continuation in office he had
made himself so familiar with all the ramifications
of the Public Improvements, that for years, he was
ex itecieeittita rci the Board itself, planning, direct
ing and carrying out such measures as were al
ways deemed most advantageous to the interests
of the Commonwealth.
Mr. Wilson was an honest man—one of that
stern, inflexible and unbending old school integ
rity, which made him die a poor man, rather than
become a party to unholy plunder from the coffers
of the Commonwealth. Hundreds of fraudulent
claims upon the State fell beneath his argus eye,
from which he could have realized an ample for
tune, but that his innate sense of right revolted at
being particepB criminis to such frauds.
Mr. Wilson was a true and devoted husband,
a kind and indulgent father, and an exemplary
man in all respects. Be has sunk quietly to rest
amid the intense excitement which reigns through
out- the country—an excitement which it was his
dearest wish to see allayed before he died. Peace
to his ashes—and may his memory live groen
within bur recollection.
MESSRS. LANDON AND SCRINDEL.—Among the
gentleinen who voted for the commutation of the
tonnage tax, and the Sunbury and Erie bill, in the
Senate, are Messrs. Landon and Schindel. We
point to the course pursued by these men with
pride and satisfaction, as a triumphant vindication
against the assaults made upon all y indiscrimi
nately, who favored the passage of the bills, as
having been subjected to undue influence. The
charge of bribery and corruption against men of
such known integrity are so many shafts of malice
that fall harmless at their feet. The record of the
lives of these men, who for years have sustained
an unsullied reputation at their homes, is such as
to entirely disarm those who possess that unfortu
nate idiosyncrasy of believing that there is only
one stand point from which to view an object—but
one right side to a question, and that always the
One they embrace. The reason why we refer to
these gentlemen in particular is obvious. They
are both ministers of the Gospel; and among those
with whom they have lived for years, they stand,
like Cmsar's wife, above suspicion.
Mr. Schindel (with the exception of Mr. Blood)
was the only Democratic Senator who voted for
the bills. His convictions were, that such a course
was eminently right and proper; but be halted
between two opinions, because his constituents did
not advise with him to any great extent, and those
who did, advised him to pursue the course he did.
As the question was not a political one, be can go
back to his constituents with a clear conscience,
and tell them that he acted according to his best
Mr. Landon came here without instructions, and
with but crude views on either of the questions.—
With that deep research and study which is one of
his characteristics, he probed and sifted them to
the bottom; and we think all be has done will be
f ully justified by those who sent him here •

DEATH OF WILLIAM S. SHOEMAKER.—We are
pained to chronicle the death of William S. Shoe
maker, acting postmaster of Altoona, who died at
the residence of his father, in that place, on Thurs
day evening last, at the early age of 25 years.
Poor Will!—we knew him when but a lad of
twelve—a tender, fragile plant, whose growth we
watched for years, under the sad assurance that
the fell destroyer would cut him off in the flower
of his youth. For a number of years ho was our
daily companion, and we eould not but notice that
unerring sign of consumption—the intellect forced
into the channels of manhood while he was yet a
He was a noble and generous friend, alike in
adversity or prosperity, and if there ever was a
true heart suddenly disappeared for whom we felt
like dropping a tear, it was Will Shoemaker.
The strife is o'er I The lov'd of years,
To whom our yearning hearts had grown,
Rath left us, with life's gathering fears
To struggle darkly and alone;
Gone, with the wealth of love which dwelt,
Heart-kept, with holy thoughts and high;
Gone, as the clouds of evening melt
Beyond the dark and solemn sky.
Max 31mm:tr.—E. C. Schmidt, of Easton, left
home on Friday, the 15th inst., sauce which time
n)thing has been heard or seen of him, and his
friends are consequently in great distress concern
ing him. He lived at the corner Cd . Bushkin and
Fourth streets. He is a very tall man, and bad on
at the time of leaving a black overcoat, pants of
the mine color, and drab every-day coat. He is
strictly temperate, but subject to melancholy spells.
Any information in regard to him will be thank
fully received by Mrs. Schmidt.
THE BED OF THE ATLANTlC.—Soundings in the
Atlantic, according to All the Year Round, have
revealed the fact that at least two hundred and
thirty miles from the coast of Ireland, the water
is still shallow ; or, in other words, that there is
another Ireland only waiting to-be raised—thus
reversing the famous panacea for keeping the coun
try quiet. It is just beyond this that the true At
lantic begins, the gulf suddenly sinking 9,000 feet.
Thus Ireland may one day have a coast line as
high ne the Alps. The whole floor of the Atlantic
is paved with a soft, sticky substance, called ooze,
nine-tenths consisting of very minute animals,
many of them lumps of jelly, and thousands of
which could float with ease in a drop of water ;
some resembling toothed wheels, others bundles
of spines or threads shooting from a little globule
Some, however, are endowed with the property of
separating flint from the sea water—which is more
than every chemist could do; and there are bun
dreds of square miles covered with the skeletons
of these little creatures. Part of this ooze is doubt
less from the clouds of rain-dust which rise from
the vast steppes of South America in such masses.
as to darken the sun and make the animals fly to
shelter, and which, after sweeping like a simoom
over the country, loose themselves in the " steep
Atlantic." No bones have been found of the larger
animals, so that the kraken or sea-serpent might
sleep their last sleep and leave not a bone or a ver
tebra to tell the tale. Not a mast or anchor, not
a block or strand, nor a coin or a keepsake, has
been found to testify of the countless gallant ships
and - more gallant men who have gone down amid
the pitiless waves.
YOUNG PEOPLE IN THE GYMNASIUM—The Hypoc
risy of Gymnastics.—The Scalpel, an expositor of
the laws of health, edited by E. H. Dixon, M. D.,
of New York, has a spicy article, entitled " The
Hypocrisy of Gymnastics." He says:
It has diled us with horror to see a proposal to
add a gymnasium to evers , public school in this
city. A boy, until he is fourteen, or even more,
wants no exercise beside the plays he gets up with
his associates in the open air; he will exercise from
his natural impulse, and in the most rational and
natural manner ; so you need only give him a dry
piece of ground, and a place to swim in in sum
mer, and plenty of ice and snow in winter, and
then leave him alone with his mates.
Boys from eight to twelve years of age, who work
in the gymnasium regularly, (a bad habit,) often
develop their muscles to a hideously ugly degree.
Instead of the soft, plump, juicy outline of youth,
we have the skinny, over-worked, hard and dry
outline of an old man, induced by over-exertion at
an age which does not demand violent exercise of
any kind; besides this, we think such processes
are apt to retard the growing of boys, and will ul
timately destroy their carriage and vigor when
they become men. Our readers may have ob
served the same thing in the dissected tippearanee
of the legs of some of oar juvenile dancers.
Excessive exercise, besides injuring the mental
faculties of man, has the tendency to injure the
equal circulation of his blood. A stupid, clown
ish, young fellow, who had for the last eight months
undergone the most painful and exhausting exer
cises of the gymnasium for five or six hours every
day, complained to me of the smallness of his logs.
On looking at him, I saw what I afterwards dis
covered to be prevalent among acrobats and mem
bers of the circus—a great falling off in the flesh
from the knees downward, and from the elbows to
ward the fingers.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR WAY THROUGH A CROWD.-
A reporter of experience gives the following in
structions for making one's way through a crowd :
"Elevate your elbow high, and bring it down with
great force upon the digestive apparatus of your
neighbor. He will double up and yell, causing the
gentleman in front of you to turn half-way round
to see what is the matter. Punch him in the same
way, step on his foot, pass him, and continue the
application until you have reached the desired
point. It never fails."
We have seen a good many crowds in which such
a process would "never fail" to get the operator
landed in the gutter.

PROF. 0. 7 WOOD'S
REST OUATIVE CORDIAL.
Is precisely what its name indicates, for while plea
sant to the taste, it is revivifying, exhilarating and
strengthening to the vital powers. It a'so reviTifies,
reinstates and renews the blood in all its original
purity, and thus restores and renders the system invul
nerable to attacks of disease. It is the only prepara
tion ever offered to the world in a popular form so as to
be within the reach of all.
So chemica!]y and skillfully combined as to be the
most powerful tonic, and yet so perfectly adapted so as
to aft ift perfect accordance with. thelatas of nattcre, and
hence soothe the weakest stomach and tone up the diges
tive organs, and allay all nervous and other irritation.
It is also perfectly exhilarating in its effects, and yet it
is never followed by lassitude or depression of spirits.
It is composed entirely of vegetables, and those
thoroughly combining powerful tonic and soothing pro
perties, and consequently can never injure. As a sure
preventive and cure of
CONSUMPTION, BRONCHITIS, INDIGESTION, DYS

FEARFULLY F AT AL CALL
ED FEMALE WEAKNESS,
THERE IS NOTHING ITS EQUAL.
Also, Liver Derangements or Torpidity, and Liver
Complaints, Diseases of the Ki ineys, or any general de
rangements of the Urinary Organs.
It wdl not only cure the debility following CHILLS
and FEVER, but prevent all attacks arising from mias
matic influences and cure the diseases at once, if already
TRAVELERS should have a bottle with them, as it
will infallibly prevent any deleterious consequences fol
lowing upon change of climate and water.
As it prevents costiveness, strengthens the digestive
organs, it should be in the hands of all persons of seden
LADIES not accustomed to much out-door exercise
should always use it.
MOTHERS should use it, for it is a perfect relief ; tai en
a month or two before the final trial, sbe will pass the
dreadful period with perfect ease and eafety!
There is no mistake about it !!
THE CORDIAL IS ALL WE CLAIM FOR IT !!
MOTHERS TRY IT ! !
And to you we appeal to detect the Moen or decline
not only of your daughters before it be too late, bat also
your sons and husbands, for while the former from false
delicacy, often go down to a premature grave, rather
than let their condition be known in time, the latter are
often so mixed up.with the excitement of business, that
if it were not for you, they, too, would travel inthe same
downward path until it is too late to arrest their fatal
fall. But the mother is always vigilant, and to you we
confidently appeal; for we are sure your never-failing
affection will unerringly point you to PROF. WOOD'S
RESTORATIVE CORDIAL AND BLOOD RENOVATOR
as the remedy which should be always on hand in time

Read what the Press says, after thoroughly testing the
matter, and no one can have a doubt.
Prof. WOOD'S Restorative Cordial ard Bloodßenova
tor is a genuine medicine of reel merit, pleasant to the
taste and invigorating to the system. While it purifies
the blood and soothes the nervous irritation, it aids the
organs of digestion to perform their functions, and re
sist the assault of disease. It is a chemical compound
so skillfully combined that while it exhilarates it does
not provoke the lassitude which usually follows excite
ment. A tonic, composed exclusively of vegetable mat
ter, it is absolutely eenelcial, and no ill effects can pos
sibly accompany its use It is an infallible and speedy
remedy fo- Loss of Appetite, Faintness, Nervous Debil
ity, Neuralgia. Pa'pitation of the Heart, Falling of the
Womb, and other delicate diseases to which woman is
subject. For Sickness of the Stomach, bilious Al tacks,
Liver Complaints, Costivenesv, Dyspepsia, Consumption,
and a host of evils flesh is heir to, it is a certain cure.—
St. Louis Morning Herald.
PROF. WOOD'S RESTORATIVE CORDIAL.—It is recorded
in the Classics that
Psyche was once sent to a climate
warmer than the West Indies, to procure a sample of the
beauty of Prosperine in a box. After some delay the
me, senger returned, and as soon as the lid of the box
was removed, out dew all the ills that flesh is heir to.—
Fortunat ly, hope was found in the bottom of the box.
Prof. WOOD'S Restorative Cordial revives the recollec
tion of the story, for it invigorates the blood, aids the
organs of digestion, imparts strength to the nelsons sys
tem, an: fortifies the citadel of health, so as to bid de
fiance to the assaults of disease. It is a healthy tonic,
composed entirely of vegetable productions, and while
it is exhilarating as pure wine, no Injurious result can
possibly follow its nsr. It is a desideratum in themedi
cal world, and those who are afflicted with loss of appe
tite, Dyspepsia, Consumption, Faintness, Giddiness,
Neauralria, Palpitation of the Heart, &c., will find here
an infallible panacea.—St. Louis Daily Express.
PROF. WOOD'S RESTORATIVE CORDIAL AED BLOOD REX.
OVATOR is, without doubt, the best tonic Cordial in the
world. To those who are suffering from General Debili
ty, we would recommend its use, for it is pleasant to the
taste, is strengthening to the system, and will at once
tend to remove .11 impurities of the blood, and eradicate
all traces of disease. It can be taken by the weakest
stomach, while those in good health wilt at once feel its
exhilarating power. We are confident that after using
one bo•lte of this Cordial none will be fora day without
i t.—New York Ltader.
ELIAS HOWE, JR
A PURE, HEALTHY TONIC, and one free from the dele
terious and injurious effects sure to follow those in ordi
nary use, has long been felt to be a desideratum in the
medical. world. Such atonic, and one so skillfully COM
bined from the vegetable kingdom as to act in perfect
accordance with the laws of nature, and thus soothe the
weakest stomach, and at the same time allay nervous
and other irritations, and tone up all the organs of which
the human body is composed, is offered in Prof. WOOD'S
Restorative Cordial and Blood Renovator. Hence, it is
perfectly adapted to old and young. Reader, try it.—
Thousands have already done so, and the testimony is
universal in its favor.—New York Ailas.
PROF. WOOD'S RESTORATIVE CORDIAL AND BLOOD REN
OVATOR, for the cure of General Debility, or Weakness
arising from any cause; also, Dyspepsia, Nervousness,
Night Sweats, Incip'ent Consumption, Liver Cemplaints,
Biliousness, Loss of Appetite, Female Weakness in all
stages i also to prevent the contraction of disease, is cer
tainly the hest and most agreeable Cordial tonic and
Renovator ever offered to the afflicted, and so chemically
combined as to be the most powerful tonic ever kuown to
medical science. 'Leader, try it. It with do you good.
We have no hesitation in recommending it, since we
know it to be a safe, pleasant and sure remedy for the
diSeaala enumerated.—.Neto York Dispatch.
ET - Before noticing a patent medicine, we have to
be certain that it will prove itself to be all that it is re
commended. And we would say that the Restorative
Cordial and Blood Renovator of Prof. Wood will stand
the test fully, and in fact it is without any doubt the
first article in the market for Purifying the Blood and
strengthening the system. We have no hesitation in
recommending its use to all.—New Yorker.
LOOK TO Youessix no TIME.—Efow many, in conse
quence of a false delicacy, !Wier from .',oppressed, prrin
tut or obstructed menstruation, and think because they
are young that bye-and-bye nature will work itself clear
from obstructions, and all come right in the end, little
that the seeds of death are already germinating
in the system because the vital energies are impaired,
and the entire animal economy deranged, debilitated ,
and yet, careless of themselves as they are, if .'remedy
were set before them which would restore all The func
tions of the system, and re-invigorate the body, they
would take it, and thus be in time to save their lives.—
Parents think of this, and at once give them a bottle
p r of, Wood's Restorative Cordial and Blood Renovator.
