of German emigrants were located at the depot.
They were on their way westward; and from the
general appearance of the party, we would judge
that they had the spondulix to carry them through.
A SHOWISIL—We were visited yesterday morning

BEFORZ THE Marort.—The lodging department

by two wanderers. They were both destitute, and
on their way to Philadelphia. One of them was
from the banks of the Rhine, and the other from
the Gem of the Ocean. They were discharged, and
went on their way rejoicing.
Oun WEEK:LT.—Again we wish to remind our

PIIIMACIOXIS.-A party of our Ethiopian poptila
tiOu assembled at the corner of Fourth and Market
streets, at a late hour on Tuesday night, and felt
disposed to have a free fight or a grand mill, but
on hearing that Mayor Kepner was looking for
the disorderlies, they vamosed the corner. No
arrests were made.
Bantam:ca.—Some shrewd individual, who for
his financial abilities deserves an appointment
under Old Abe, visited the market house yesterday
and did most feloniously appropriate to bill own use
three severalpounda or lumps of butter. The poor
farmer was very indignant, and well he might be,
for the article at that time was selling at a quarter
A niell OLD Trim.—On Tuesday night a number
of citizens of Philadelphia, and friends of a certain
bill, bad a "high old time" between the hours of
one and two. Achair demanded from the window;
this was followed by a champagne bottle; then
came the glasses, beds and bedding, chairs and
household furniture, and the party no doubt en

Tuesday. night in State street in the vicinity of

Sattvz Tons TABLEs.—You who love the garden,
and intend that your table shall be graced with the
delicacies of the season, will not forget to prepare
the hot-bed in good time. Do not look upon it as
a scientific operation, one requiring a carpenter or
any other artisan to construct it; take the square,
saw and hammer, and make it yourself in double
quick time. Purchase the sash, if you have no old
ones- In some sheltered and sunny spot throw
Out the earth to the depth of a foot, fill it with
bone manure, and on that six inches of fine loam

TEE GIFT BUSINESS.—Every now and then the
habitues of the Quarter Sesiisns of Philpdelphia
are treated to a " test case," as it is called—said
test case being for the purpose of determining the
legality of the gift business, which is now so ex
tensively carried on in that city. Five or six
months ago, a mon named Carryl was tried and
convicted under a bill of indictment which charged
him with being engaged in this business. This
was a "test ease." A motion in arrest of judgment
was made, and the decision of the court on the
law, as raised, was to be conclusive in regard to
the gift business. That motion has never been
argued, and that "test case" never amounted to
anything—the defendant, although convicted, be
ing still at large and not sentenced. A few days
since another "test ease" was taken up.
Martin H. N. Kendig was put on trial, charged
with a conspiracy, with Henry L. Kendig and
Philander A. Fitzgerald, to cheat and defraud the
citizens of this Commonwealth by means of certifi
cates proposing to furnish jewelry, Jo. The cir
cular which sets forth the scheme had the names
of Mayor Henry, Ex-Mayor Vans, Gov. Packer,
and Hon. William Bigler as reference. Mayor
Henry was examined as a witness, and he testified
that he never gave his sanction to the use of his
name. These circulars held out, in glowing terms,
inducements to purchase a certificate "in the next
distribution." Fifty cents was the price, and the
certificate might call for a piano, a watch, &0., kc.,
and a payment of an additional $2 on this certifi
cate would secure the prize. The circulars were
sent all over the Union, and at the house of Mr.
Kendig a large number of letters were found, post
marked from distant towns in the far West and
South. Henry L. Kendig and P. A. Fitzgerald
seem to have been employed as clerks for the ac
cused, and the defence contended that no matter
how illegal the business might be, there was no
conspiracy proven. It was denied also that there
was anything illegal in the transaction, as the
worth of the money was given. Good character
Judge Ludlow, in charging the jury, held that
they must be satisfied that there was an agree
ment between the parties to cheat and defraud.—
Under the section of the Penal Code which formed
the basis of the action, the Judge held that if the
defendant did a dishonest act, which was not in
tended for his own advancement alone, but to cheat
and defraud others, he would be amenable to the
act of Assembly,
FEAST .01' THE PAssovEß.—The Jewish Passover,
a festival commemorative of the deliverance of the
children of Israel from Egyptian bondage, com
menced on Monday evening, and will continue for
eight days. The origin of the festival is given in
the 12th chapter of Exodus, and the Bible predic
tion that it should be forever observed by the Is
raelites throughout the world, has thus far been
strikingly fulfilled. The duties imposed upon the
Jews during the Passover are, total abstinence from
all kinds of leaven and leavened bread, attendance
of the males at the tabernacle, and cessation of
business on the first two and last two days of the
festival. On the evenings of the first two days,
the reading of the Sidar takes place in every Jew
ish family, the members, mean.while, sitting round
a table, on which are placed the bone of a lamb,
representing the sacrifice of the "paschal lamb,"
and some bitter herbs, symbolical of the bitterness
of the Egyptian bondage. After the reading of
the Sider, the family chant a service, reciting their
bondage and deliverance. Previous to the Pass
over, every Jewish household undergoes a thorough
renovation, corresponding to the house-cleaning
process customary among Christians.
St.nenonn, You Kim Cum Dr.—A worthy friend
from the farming districts, who occasionally drops
in upon us passing through his neighborhood on
horseback, stopped at a modest cottage on the road
side, and asked for shelter, as it was quite dark and
raining. Tne "head of the family" came to the
door and accosted the traveler with
"What do you want?"
"I want to stay all night," was the reply.
"What are yer ?"
This interrogatdry was not fully understood by
the traveler, and he asked an explanation.
"I mean, wiatts yer polities?" rejoined the for.
mer. "Air yer fur this Union, or agin it ?"
This was a poser, as the traveler was not certain
whether "the man of the house" was a Union man
or a secessionist, and he was anxious to "tie up"
for the night—so he made up his mind and said:
"My friend, lam for the Union and Consti—"
"Stranger, y-e-o-u kin kum in."
It is needless to add that the traveler dis
mounted, and both man and beast were hospitably
taken care of for the night—Nashville Bauner.
INCREASE AIID PRPOPRVATION OP BIRDS.-A
correspondent of the Germantown Telegraph, in
speaking on this subject, says :—"I think that an
effort should be made to procure legislation to es
tablish 'ornithological societies,' for the purpose
of increasing our native insectiverous birds, as
well as importing strangers and acclimating them,
to effect this, in my opinion, indispensable object.
Small annual appropriations, to carry this subject
into practical operation, would be necessary, and I
believe that as much good would be accomplished
by such associations, in the increase of our crops
of grain and fruit, as there is by our agricultural
exhibitions; and each county could well afford fifty
dollars or more annually, for the benefit of all the
tax-payers, in protecting crops against insects. I
would write you a careful and reasonably long ar
ticle on the subject, but I am too busily engaged
just now in underdraining and other work."
PUT me YOUR GOOD CLOTHEYL—This is the ac
cepted time. Don't wait for something to turn up
but try and tarn up something for yourself. Old
Abe is dispensing offices like the pan-tee-na-thee-a
man does his books, jewelry, and other valuables.
Procrastination is the thief of time, and if you
wa nt anything, go for it now. A correspondent
from Washington says!
The rush of office-seekers upon the departments
exceeds anything of the kind ever before known.
Prom early morning till late in the evening, Uncle
Abe and each of the members of the Cabinet are
beset by men, women and children. The crowd
was so pressing yesterday and to-day as to render
it utterly impossible for the chief clerks in the
different departments to consult with their heads
on important business. Every train brings in a
fresh company. Those who have been here a cou
ple of weeks have assurance that all the principal
appointments and removals will be attended to
RETRENCHMENT IN FASHIONABLN LlM—There is
a good old Scotch proverb which has it that "there
is nae great loss without some sma' gain," which
is likely to be verified in these troublous times.—
Orders to France for supplies in the highest circles
of fashion have, it is said, undergone a great re
daction, and the same degree of retrenchment is
running in an equal ratio through the descending
scale of domestic extravagance. Low rents and
more modest establishments are the rage in New
York this spring; and, in short, if we may credit
some accounts we see, economy is to be the fashion
for a while. •
Oxen Monz.—We would again remind the newly
elected justices that the law requires that persons
elected to the office of Justice uf the Peace, shall
give notice to the Prothonotary of their willingness
to serve, within forty days after the election,
otherwise no commission will be made out for them.
THE GREAT TRIUMPH OF THE DAY.—Some men
are born to greatness, while others have it thrust
upon them; but by far the most meritorious is he
who achieves greatness—carves it, as it were, out
of the solid block, by patience and perseverance.
Such a man Is Mr. Wentz, the proprietor of the
Pan-tee-na-thee-a. He brought his exhibition
here last week, and opened to a crowded house on
Tuesday evening. At the end of the performance,
when everybody was intensely delighted with what
they saw and heard, and were on the point of lea
ving the Hall, Mr. Wentz, without any previons
notice, in order to advertise his exhibition, gave
away a large number of valuable presents. This
be has kept up nightly, and his Pan-tec-na-thec-a
is to-day the most popular institution ever brought
to town. The request to remain two nights longer
has been so general that the manager has suc
cumbed. For a display of liberality, see pro
gramme of the gifts that will be distributed. Go
early if you want to secure a seat.
RATTISH BURGLARS.-A party of New York
burglars have been distinguishing themselves by
tunneling seventy feet under ground into a bank
vault. Their exploit was worthy of Guy Fawaes,
Baron Trenck and Jack Sheppard, and it had a lit
tle of the characteristics of each in its details.—
The expenses of the experiment were $l,lOO, and
the yield was $l,OOO. Net loss one hundred dol
lars. The burglars 'bad better led honest lives,
saved themselves the trouble of burrowing under
ground like moles, and have judiciously invested
those one hundred dollars in elegant garments at
the Brown Stone Clothing Ball of Roelth ill At Wil
son, Nos. 603 and 605 Chestnut street, above Sixth,
CLEAN UP.—The Supervisors are now at work
lifting the dirt and coal ashes that accumulated in
the streets during the winter, and it would be well
for our citizens to follow their example, and sweep
before their own doors Many of the gutters in
town are in a shocking condition, and sadly in
want of the mops and pails and people to use them.
Let this thing be attended to by all means, and
when the warm days set it we can inhale a healthy
breeze, instead of being compelled to snuff up the
stench from•filthy gutters.
DELAWARE FISHERIES.—The shad fisheries upon
the Delaware river are beginning to yield the
usual spring supply. A few days ago they sold
as high as $2 50 for the finest. Now they eom
wand about 75 down to 50 ants. In a week more
30 cents will buy a good Delaware shad, which,
taken altogether, is the best fish that swims.—
There are plenty of shad in our markets, from va
rious points southward; but if they are brought
beyond Baltimore, they are quite worthless—in
deed the poorest fish to be found. Perch, suckers,
sunfish, dce., are abundant and cheap.
THE MILITARY SPIRIT.—The parade of the Cam
eron Guard, on Sato(lay afternoon, bas caused. a
re-action in the minds of our young men. For
some years the "spirit" has been lying dormant,
and those who felt disposed to march behind the
"eat-piercing fife and beating drum," have labored
under diffieulties. The members of the Guard have
worked hard to raise their company, and we are
pleased to see that the chances are that they will
accomplish the object. A meeting of the company
will be held at the armory, in the Exchange, to
night, where all who are disposed to go in the
corps are invited to attend.
CAVALRY SQUADRON.-At a meeting held at the
European Hotel, on the 20th inst., it was resolved
that a meeting for drill be held at the Harrisburg
Park, on Saturday afternoon, the 30th inst., at
half past one o'clock, when all desirous of uniting
with the Squadron be required to contribute five
dollars toward the purchase of material for uni
form, and unite in an election of permanent offi
cers then and there to be held. Ey order,

APRIL Cultitous.--Subscribers intending to
change their places of residence on or about the
first of next month, and desiring their papers sent
to a different place, will save much trouble by
sending us early notice of the fact, always stating
where they are now, or have been sent. The mat
will be promptly attended to, and patrons will not
be subjected to the loss of any papers.
THE Sown SIDE.—The supervisor of the south
side of Market street was very busily engaged yes
terday in fixing up his side of the street. We
hope he may be blessed with strength and energy
enough to carry out his. intentions, and that he will
persevere until our streets are in a condition to
promenade in, and our citizens will not be ashamed
to welcome a stranger.

PROF. WOOD'S HAIR RESTORATIVE
READ WHAT A DISTINGUISHED PHYSICIAN
OF ST. LOUIS SAYS OF IT.
St. Louis, July 10th, 1860.
0. J. WOOD, Esq.! Dear Sir.—AlloW me the pleasure
and satisfaction to transmit to you the beneficial effects
of your Hair Restorative after a trial of five years. I
commenced using your Restorative in January, 1855,
since which time I have not been without a bottle on
hand. When I commenced the use, my hair was quite
thin, and at least one-third gray. A few applications
stopped its falling, and in three weeks time there was
not a gray hair to be found, neither has there beenup to
After my hair was completely restored, I continued its
use by applying two or three times per month. My hair
has ever continued healthy, soft and glossy, and my scalp
perfectly free from dandruff. I do not imagine the facts
above mentioned will be of any particular advantage to
you, or even flatter your vanity at this late day, as I am
well aware they are all well known already, and even
more wonderful ones throughout the Union. I have oc
cupied my time in traveling the greater part of the time
the past three years, and have taken pride and pleasure
in recommending your Restorative and exhibiting its
effects in my own case, In several instances I have met
with people that have pronounced it a humbug ; saying
they had used it, and without effect. In every instance,
however, it proved by probing the matter, that they had
not used the article at all, but had used some new arti
cle, said to be as good as yours, and sellingat about half
the price. I have noticed two or three articles myself
advertised as above, which I have no doubt are humbugs.
It is astonishing that people will patronize an article of
no reputation, when there is one at hand that has been
proved beyond a doubt.
Apparently, some of those Charlatans have not brains
enough to write an advertisement, as I notice they have
copied yours, word for word in several instances, merely
inserting some other name in place of yours.
I have, within the past fiveyears, seen and talked with
more than two thousand persons that have used your
preparation with perfect success—some for baldness,
gray hair, scald head, dandruff, and every disease the
scalp and head are subject to.
I called to see you,
personally, at your original place
of business here, but learned you were now living in New
You are at liberty to publish this or to refer parties to
me. Any communication addressed to me, care box
1920, will be promptly answered. Yours, truly,
JAMES WILITE i M. D.
Warren Springs, Perry Co., PA., June 7th, 1850.
PROF. WOOD; Dear sir—l was induced more than a
year ago to try your valuable Hair Restorative, for the
purpose of cleansing my head of dandruff I bad suf
fered with it upon my head for years, and had never been
able to get anything to do me aoy good in removing it,
although I had tried many preparations, until I saw
your advertisement in a Harrisburg paper. Being there
at the time, I called at Gross & Ross's Drug Store
and bought a bottle, and now am prepared to recommend
it to universal use, for it has completely removed all dand
ruff from my head, and an application once in twoweeks
keeps it free from any itching or other unpleass.ntnesit.—
I must also state that my hair had become quite white
in places, and, by the use of your preparation, has been
restored to its original color. lam now 50 years of age,
and although I have used two bottles of the Restora
tive, no one has any knowledge of it, as I allow a few
gray hairs to remain in order to have my appearance
comport with my age. My head is now of less trouble
to me, in keeping it clean, &e., than at any time since
I have been achild. I consider your preparationofgreat
value, and although I do not like to expose myself, I

Bloomington, Ind.. Surly 30th, 18.50.
Dene Sir here send you a statement that I think
you are entitled to the benefit of. I am a resident of
Bloomington and have been for over thirtyyears. lam
now over 50 years of age. For about twenty years past
my hair has been turning considerably gray, and was
almost entirely white, and very stiff and nnpliant. I
had seen a number of certificates of the very wonderful
effect of your Hair Restorative, but supposed there was
more fiction than truth in them ; but entertaining a
strong desire to have my hair, if possible, restored to its
original color and fineness, as it was in my younger days
a beautiful black, I concluded I would make the experi
ment, commencing in a small way. I purchased one of
your small bottles, at one dollar, and commenced using,
following directions as nearly as I could. I soon discov
ered the dandruff removed, and my hair, that was fall
ing off in large.quantities, was consith , rably tightened ;
and a radical change taking place in the color. I have
continued to use it till I have used three of your smal
bottles, and just begun on the fourth. I have now as
pretty a head of dark brown, or light black hair, as any
man, or as I had in my youthful days when a boy in toe
hills of Western Virginia. My head is entirely clear of
dandruff, and the hair ceased entirely falling off, and is
as soft and fine, and feels as oily, as though it was just
from under the hands of a French shampooer. Msny
of my acquaintances frequently say to me, "Butler, where
did you get that fine wig :" 1 tell them it wan, the ef
fects of your Restorative. It is almost impossible to
convince them that it is the original hair of the same
old gray head. Yours. trnly.

PROF. WOOD'S LIAIRRESTORATIVE.—ID another col
umn will be found an advertisement of this well-known
aLti excellent preparation for restoring gray hair to its
original color. The Hair Restorative also cures cuta
neous eruption; and prevents the hair falling off. We
have seen many authentic testimonials in proof of these
assertion; some of which are from gentlemen whom we
have known for many years as persons of the most re
liable character. Don't dye till you have tried this Re
storative.—Boston Olive Branch.
WOOD'S HAIR RESTORATIVE.—We are not in the habit
of puffing every new oiscovery, for nine cases of ten
they are quack nostrums, but we take great pleasure in
recommending Professor Wood's article to all whose hair
is falling off, of turning gray. Our well-known contri
butor, Finley Johnson, Esq., has experienced ,the bene
fits of its application, and joins with us in speaking, of its
virtues. Let all try it, and bald beads will be us rare as
snow in Summer.--.Salt /snore Patriot.
WOOD'S HAIR RESTORATIVE.—UnIike most specifics,
this is proven, by unimpeachable evidence, to possess
great efficacy as a restorer of the hair to s pristine
vigor. Where the head had become almost bald because
of sickness; the use of this article has produced a beau
tiful growth of thick, glossy hair. It is therefore a val
uable preparation for all classes. Its ingredients are
such asto effectually eradicate dandruff and other im
purities, which operate so injuriously to the hair. It
080 has curative properties of another descripti n In
many cases pimples and other disfigurements of the skin
disappear wherever it is used. There is no hazard at
taching to the trial of this remedy, and its effects can
only be beneficial, as the compound, if it does not cause
a manifest improvement, is incapable of doing harm, as
its component elements are perfectly innoicious.—Bos
91:g, Transcript, Apr2l22, '59..
A GENIIINE BOO:I.—In our capacity as conductor of a
public journal we are called upon to advertise the cure
ails of the day, each of which claims to be unadultera
ted in its composition and infallible in its curative ef
fects—with what justice we leave our readers to deter
mine. In one instance, however—Prof. Wood's Hair
Restorative—we are so well assured of the notable
qualities of the article that we give it our endorsement
as all that its inventor and vender claims it to be. Its
effect upon a falling head of hair is universally known to
be magical; like lime or guano on exhausted land, it
brings its crop wherever applied. Our own thatch is
fortunately healthy, but W 4 advise our friends with
sparsely growing hair to trythe Restorative.—Columbia
Qllsoa NOSTaIIM —The majority of hair washes,hair
dyes, hair tonics, hair oils, and the numberlessprepara
tions which are now before the public under such ex
travagant, hyperbolical and fantastic titles as we see
paraded in show windows and newspaper headings, as
hair preparationti, are all humbuga of the first w.ter ;
their real merit, when they possess any, is, that they do
no harm. Hog's lard, whale oil,
lard oil, sweet oil,
scented and colored, make up, when in beautiful wrap
pers, and white flint glass bottles, the costliest character
of tonics. and when thus costly, are baptised with some
tri- syllable. term, and caught at by verdant young and
old of both sexes. Such is not the character of Prof.
Wood's Hair Restorative. This gentleman comes before
the world without any "highfalutin" Xilophloforium or
any other astoundixis and startling catch-penny term ; he
simply advertises is Hair Restorative—what it expresses,
precisely—and as a Restorative it acts. Buy Professor
Wood's Hair Restorative, and as you value your scalp,
aye, your very brains, apply nothing else ; for it maybe
that you will get some worse substance than perfumed
lard oil on your cranium. Remember. Wood's Restora
tive for the Hair is the beat. article extant.—Nsio York
