this morning radishes, onions, spinach, salad and
other productions of the garden. These early
vegetables are a luxury just now, and our "coun

RssoLunoxs OF THANKS —At a late meeting of
the Paxton fire company resolutions were unani
mously adopted tendering thanks to J. C. Runkle,
Esq., Recorder Ringland and Alderman Kline, for
gratuitous services rendered in the purchase of
their property in Second street near Vine.
Tat RIVER is still on the rise, and rolls an int
;glenso Tolume of water just now, the upper
branches and small streams emptying into them
being swollen to torrents. We have heard of no
serious damage to public or private property on
the main stream or its branches.
PICKING THENI.IP.—..The provost guard eos.tinue
to pick up stragglers and deserters from the army.
Yesterday we saw one of the latter class pass along
the street under an escort of four armed soldiers . .
A considerable number have been arrested within
a few weeks and forwarded to the seat of war.
STREET CLEawrao.—The scraping and repairing
of the streets has at last been commenced, under
the supervision of the street committee, and we
are glad to learn that the work is to be continued
until all our main thoroughfares shall have been
thoroughly cleansed of mud and filth, and put in
AsSannr Asia BArrnar.—Yesterday Charles
Thomas and John Dress were before Alderman
Kline, on warrants executed b, officer Deeters, the
inmer for assaulting and abusing an old lady
named Mary Bauchman, and the latter for whtp
ping a boy named John Sore. Bath defendants
gave bail for their appearance at court.
JUVENILE OFFENDERS.—Three youthful ebony
colored offenders, answering to the names of Smith
Jackson, Dick Robinson and Frank Bennet, were
arrested by officer Deeters, and arraigned before
Alderman Maglanchlin, charged with assaulting
and whipping a small white boy. The parents of
the dusky offenders appeared and paid the coats,
whereupon they were reprimanded and discharged.
Comme Down.—This morning the market was
well supplied with fine Delaware shad, which sold
readily at seventy-five cents a pair. Some of
smaller size and inferior quality were disposed of
for fifty cents a pair. Judging from the large
Lumber carried from market by people of all class
es, rich and poor, a great many shad dinners will
be served up in our city to-day.
DELEGATE Er.xermits.—The Democratic dele
gate elections come off this evening. We have no
doubt the Democracy of the various wards, and of
the boroughs and townships throughout the
county, will choose good and true men to represent
them in the county convention to be held in this
city on Tuesday next. It is the duty of all good
Democrats to attend the elections and aid in the
accomplishment of such a result.
CONSCRIPTION.—As the conscription act takes
all unmarried men between the ages of twenty and
forty-five before it touches the married men, there
is said to be quite a flatter in bachelordom here
abouts. The clergy may prepare for a brisk busi
ness for a month to come. We have also heard of a
new dodge that meets with some favor in this lo
cality. As the law exempts widows' sons, several
bachelors are contemplating the adoption of the
widows with whom they board, as their mothers.
Paoxorzn.—Recent letters from Tennessee
bring the intelligence that Capt. Charles C. Davis,
'Jf this city, has been promoted to the position of
Major of one of the battalions of the Seventh Penn
sylvania cavalry. This announcement will be ex
l'eedingly gratifying to the gallant Captain's nu
merous friends at home. His distinguished servi
crs in the South, for which he has frequently been
complimented by the general in command, fairly
endued him to promotion. We confidently predict
that Major Davis will win additional laurels in his
new position, and rise to still higher honors should
he war continue several months longer.
DISREPUTABLE LvsTlTt?jog,_Th e other day of
eer Deeters arrested Ferdinand Basehore and
Mary his reputed wife, on a charge of keeping a
disorderly bawdy house in State street. The com
plainants are two women who reside in the base
ment of the house occupied by Basehore, and who,
some two weeks ago, were arrested at his instance
f2r drunkenness and" disorderly conduct, and har
-toring "lewd men of the baser sort." After a hear
ing before Alderman Maglanchlin the virtuous Fer
dinand and his female companion were obliged
give bail for their appearance at court to answer
e charge prefeved against them.
MASON JON/S.—This gentleman was not " sent
:.:roes. the Federal lines," as announced by the
z:ggcr organ on Thursday evening. One of the
cliters of this paper yesterday received a letter
:eta him, dated Chicago, April 13th, from the
of which it ie eildept that the distinguished
_feturer had no knowledge of the appointment
zade for him in this city. •Mr. Jones designs
east in the course of a short time, and we
:am that arrangements will be made by the
I.ttig Men's Christian Association to have him
ctnre here. He will give the committee due
when and where to address him on the sub-
His lectures at the West are noticed by the
terms highly emplimentary.
GOING ONTO WINTER QUARTEES.-It is rumored
that the Abolition Rome League of this city are
making extensive preparations for going to house
keeping. They are furnished a room which, it is
said, is to be elegantly fitted up and supplied with
all the luxuries the ton of their party are used to
at home. This is certainly a strong evidence that
it is to be a Home League, where they will be per
fectly safe and have all the luxuries cf ease and
comfort. And this is being done notwithstanding
the pious and patriotic Deacon Bergner declares
that the conscription laW "will bo enforced." Are
the men who are leagued lobo this Abolition asso
ciation to be exempt from serving their country ?
If not, why the necessity or all this fitting up and
expensive luxury ? When we see these men with
their orators, councilors, editors, Ac., forming a
ampany to ; go and fight for their country, we
shall have some faith in their honesty and patri
otism, and not until then.
Tows Hera.—We notice that . petitionS are in
circulation, and obtaining numerous signatures,
representing to our City Fathers the necessity for
a town hall, and asking them to make an appro
priation sufficient to purchase a lot, in a suitable
locality, upon which to erect a building for the use
of the city. We have no doubt that Council, fully
appreciating the want of such an institution, will
respond promptly and favorably to the request of
the petitioners, many of whom are prominent citi
zens, extensive property holders and heavy tax
payers. A town hall could be built that would
answer all the purposes intended to be accom
plished by the petitioners, be an ornament to the
section chosen for its location, and at the same time
yield a handsome revenue to the city. Let all who
favor the movement take an interest in having the
petitions filled up and presented to Council with
HOSPITALS ABANDONED.-All the military hos
pitals in tide city, and the general hospital
at Camp Curtin, have been abandoned, by or
der of the United States Surgeon General, and
the patients removed to York. Hereafter only a
post hospital, under charge of Surgeon Wilson,
will be maintained here. A niggerhead organ as
signs as the reason for this change that "certain
Parties in Harrisburg have been constantly en
gaged in remonstrating with the Surgeon General,
protesting against the use of public buildings, and
is every way seeking to embarrass the Medical
Department with objections, impediments and
complaints." This statement, whether voluntarily
put forth by the nigger organ from which we ex
tract it, or made by authority of the "medical de
partment," is a malicious lie and infamous slander
upon our citizens.
KNOCKED DOWN —A personal collision took
place yesterday afternoon at the corner of Fourth
and South streets, between a soldier and one of the
"fancy" Americans of African descent, who spot ttd
yellow kid gloves and an ivory -headed cane. The
latter "put on airs," and indulged in some insolent
remarks which excited the indignation of the sol
dier, who chastised him severely. At first tie
darkey made a show of fight, but finding that he
was no match for the stalwart soldier, he finally
begged for quarters and apologised for his inso
lence. lie left the field of action with a damaged
countenance and the bleed streaming from his ex
pansive nostrils, a properly punished and wiser
Iv TROUBLE.-A highly respectable resident of
the •:pper end of this county, whose name we sup
press, recently Tidied Baltimore city. While
there he purchased a horse, which subsequently
proved to have been stolen, and the animal being
found in his possession, he was arrested on suspi
cion of being the thief. After considerable diffi
culty and delay he finally succeeded in establishing
the fact that he had purchased the horse, and his
honesty and respectability being vouched for by
parties who knew him, our Dauphin county friend
was released from prison and honorably dis
charged. Satisfied with his brief experience in the
Monumental city, and thankful for his Providential
escape from conviction as a horse thief, he took the
first train for home. •
NEW LIITHERAN CHAPELS.—We notice that
workmen are now preparing the foundation fir a
new English Lutheran chapel on Reservoir avenue,
near Ridge road. The location is a pleasant one,
and the edifice, when completed, will be alike
creditable to the liberality of the congregation and
the architectural skill of its builders, and an orna.
went to that section of the city; The German
Lutherans of the Sixth ward have also purchased
ground on which to erect a chapel, which they
hope to be able to complete in the ourse of a few
months. Good citizens of all denominations, in
prosperous circumstances, should contribute liber
ally of their means in aid of these and similar
A MESS OF GBEENS.—Moat people highly enjoy
a dish of "greens." It is the first contribution of
the season which the garden makes to the table,
and it brings the assurance that Spring is at hand,
and is a promise of more good things to come.—
The custom of boiling greens with pork or other
fat meat is a bad ono. The delicate flavor of spi
nach, especially, is destroyed in this way, and all
greens are rendered less digestible. It is much
better to boil them in pure water and dress them
with butter and other seasoning as.they are sent
to the table. Our market now abounds with
"greens" and other of the first vegetable cfferings
of the season.
DAMAGES AWARDED.—In the Cumberland county
court this week an award of one thousand dollars
damage was made to Nicholas Myers, for injuries
sustained on the Cumberland Valley railroad in
February IS6I. Several cars ran over one of his
legs, rendering amputation necessary, and he al
leged carelessness on the part of the company's
agent as the cause of the accident.
DANGEROUS COUNTERFEIT•-TWO dollar green
backs altered to twenties aro now extensively cir
culated. The alterations are so successfully done
that the closest examination is necessary to detect
the fraud. Twenty dollar government bills should
be closely inspected before they are taken. By
holding the counterfeit bills before a strong light
the alterations may be detected.

Mil. G. TEN EYOE SHELDON, Editor Sing Sing Republi-
Dear Sir—l would state that I was _induced to use
1311&NDRETHIS PILLS through the recommendation of
John R. Swift, of Croton, Westchester County, who was
entirely restored to health by their use. He was sick
for some two years, very costive and dyspeptic, and he
tried everything, but was not relieved. Finally, he teok
one Brandreth•s Pill every day for a week, and a dose of
six Pills every day for three days, and then took one
Pill every day, with occasional doses of six. In one
month he was able to go to work, and in three monthe
was well, gaining 40 minds in weight.
Yours truly, EDWARD PURDY.

Edward Purdy, being duly sworn, says that he resides
in the town of New Castle ; that some years ago be was
very sick with a sore on his leg, which had been run
tang for over five years; that he was also much dis
tressed by a pain in his chestesn /, besides, was very cos
tive and dyspeptic ; that after Tying various remedies
and many physicians, he commenced using Brandreth's
Pills, six to eight three times a week, and at the end of
one month the sore in his leg healed, and at the end of
two months he was entirely cured of costiveness, dys
