ARRIVAL of TROOPS —Another regiment—the

tin yeeternay afternoon. It is composed of com
panies from Somerset, Bedford, Pew and Cam
bria mantles, and reports six hundred and fifty
men in its ranks.
DETAIMID.—The one o'clock train from Phila
delphia on the Pennsylvania railroad was yester
day detained more than three hours, in conse
quence of the wreck of a freight train obstructing
the track near Shack's station, three miles above
Marietta.
Carmen Dumeknou.—..The newly erected Church
of the Evangelical Association, in Clark's valley,
DaaPhittilounty, will be dedicated to the services
of the Tg i nne God, by divine permission, on the
24th of May, 1883. Services to commence at 9•l_.'
o'clock a. m., of said day. Friends and preachers
of neigboring churches are invited to be present.
Rownvisx.—On Sunday night last a gang of
rowdies perambulated the street•, and took delight
in displacing doorsteps and signs in different parts
Of the town. Those that were moveable were
thrown in every direction. It would have been a
blessing had those making the raid been treated
in the same style.
I=l
OUT or OaDan.—Ali navigation on the canal
below the Walnut street lock, in this place, has
been stopped since Sunday last, owing to one of
the elniee gates of that lock being out of order.—
Proper repairs are being made, and the canal below
that point is expected to resume operations this
morning.
SIIIIIISIIE COMM—The Supreme Court le still In
session in this city. The cases from the counties
of Fulton, Franklin, Bedford, Dauphin, Somerset
and Lebanon are being argued this week. Yester
day, on motion of Hon. A. H. Coffrotb, John 11.
Uhl and Valentine flay, Esqs., of Somerset, were
admitted as attorneys and counsellors, and licensed
to practice as such.
LET THE FIRE PLUGS Rua.—The water should
be allowed to inn from some of the town fireplugs
at least once a week. By continually standing in
the pipes it allows the sediment to settle and the
pipes become choked. When engines are supplied
with water from pipes which have been without
cleaning for some time, their machinery is left in
a deplorable condition by the action of the dirt
in the water. To our knowledge, the water pipes
have not been cleaned for some time.
PHlLOSOPEM—Philosephy, like potatoes, is a
very good think in its Place; but when applied to
the common, every-day affairs of life the results do
not in all eases demonstrate its wisdom. A con
temporary says that many a philosopher, who
thought he bad an exact knowledge of the human
race, has been miserably cheated in the choice of
a wife; and we add that that wife may have been
subsequently cheated in an umbrella. sow, if the
former bad ignored philosophy and depended upon
common sense, he might have wedded an angel;
and if the letter had patreuized our friend U. 1!.
Lan, 89 Market street, who keeps on hand at all
times a superior stock of umbrellas, parasols,
canes, Ate., she would have procured an unexcep
tionable article, and, in all probability, th e p hi_
leeopher would have escaped a curtain lecture_t
POLW ArrAuts.—Before Alderman Kline.—Late
ca Monday night officer Campbell made a haul of
three vagrant wenches on Walnut street, named
Jane K Fisher, Catharine Marshall and Anna M.
.Hawkine. They were conducting themselves in a
disorderly manner, unbecoming single young la
dies of the colored, or any other persuasion. They
are booked for ten days in the prison.
A oldies named Michael Canan, who was bran
dishing a knife in a threatening manner in Market
m-eet, was arrested by officer Brooks, and sent for
three days to the tranquilizing retirement of "Fort
ebranons."
Between 10 and 11 o'clock Monday night officers
- Fry sad Kline found a•negro lying on a parcinent
near the Wlread, tight to the lust degree. Sent

Tue LANcAsrza Rzatmzerr.—A day or two since
we alluded to the fact that the authorities of Lan
caster city had declined to participate formally in
the reception of Colonel Franklin's returning regi
ment, being driven to that step by the officious,
monopolizing busybodyism of a clique of disor
ganizing Union Leagures. We have duce read
an explanatory statement made by Mayor Sandyr
son in the latelligeneer of the 19th, which corrobo
rates the version we have already given of the
affair. The City Couneils had held a special
meeting in order to make arrangements for the
reception, had appointed a committee to perfect a
programme, and to give the Colonel the necessary
information. A:tub-committee of two—one Demo
crat and one Republican—proceeded to Harrisburg
and tendered the invitation, which was accepted.
In the meantime the Union League was at work
with the regiment, slandering the city authorities,
and disaffecting the minds of the men toward their
beat friends; and the Colonel deemed it best to
address a note to the committee, declining a pub
lic reception. The city authorities being thus
ignored, the whole affair fell into the hands of the
Union Leaguers, who appointed a reception com
mittee, the character of which may be inferred
from the fact that it contained seventy Abolition
ists and five Democrats l---hardly salt enough to
keep such a mass of meanness and bigotry from
spoiling. The authorities of the city would have
been glad to testify publicly their hearty apprecia
tion of the bravery and gallantry of the returning
soldiers. That they were not permitted to do so,
in common with all classes and conditions of their
fellow-citizens, is the fault of the narrow minded,
envious, insulting bigots who assumed the mo
nopoly of all patriotism, and shut out all official
partieipatiert in the proceedings except on terms
at once insolent and degrading.
Warrsuarroz.—Some of
_our cotempiraries are
at fault in announcing the festival of Whitsunday
to have occurred on the 17th inst. It happens on
neat Sunday, the 24th, being always on the seventh
Sunday or forty.ninth day after Easter. The fes
tival has its origin with the Jews, who observed
it throughout their history as the day upon which
Moses received the law upon Mount Sinai. The
diffusion of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles, as
recorded in Acts ii, occurred on this day, which
was known among them as the day of Pentecost,
and hence its observance has been continued by
Christians. Whitmonday, which occurs on ,the
25th, is celebrated as a holiday and festival in some
parts of the country, the people abandoning them
selves to hilarity andmerriment. In old Laneaster,
particularly, Whitmonday is celebrated with eclat.
It would be well if its observance were universal.
It's too long -between holidays in this country_
We would lose nothing by giving ourselves over
to freedom and recreation now and then. "All
work and no play makes Jack a dull boy."
ON Tan MOYR.—If any one would be convinced
that the Americans are a traveling people, let him
take his stand at the depots on the arrival of the
passenger trains. Every body seems to be going
somewhere. The trains that some and go in all
directions are heavily freighted with man and
womankind. Whence they come or whither they
go we cannot imagine, but it seems clear that all
flesh, black, white and "between," is on the move.
Oar reputation for being the most region and no
madic people op the earth has its foundation in
fact, and we are a match for all the slow coaches
in the universe in the matter of fast horses, fast
locomotion and fest living.
This rush of travel is a harvest to the hucksters
and the boot-blacks. Squads of smutty-faced ju
venile "knights of the soot-pot" range about the
depot, plying their brushes industriously, and AA
industriously gathering in their harvest of postage
stamps. The demand for peanuts and other like
commodities is also encouraging.
A MILD ExworrarioN.—ln the crowded state of
our streets at present, the ear of the passer-by is
often offended by coarse and indelicate language,
which is indulged regardless of the proximity of
women and children. This may not be done in
tentionally, but it is done nevertheless. Of course
the impropriety of such thoughtless conduct is too
palpable to need exposition or elaboration. We
merely desire to call the attention of the careless
talker to the subject, so that he may be a little
more guarded in future. Coarse jest or profanity
is illy suited to the ear of womanhood and child
hood, and from all ribaldry their finer feelings re
coil instinctively, by the very law of their nature.
As a nation, we have a reputation for gallantry
and tenderness of which . we may well be proud,
and It behooves us to see to it that we do notlapee
in the least degree from our high position in this
respect.
A PLEASANT AFFAIR. — The gachUlcieS Wads
pic-nie of yesterday was all and more than it
promised. The pleasant locality in which it was
held, the dolightfal weather, the many facilities
provided for erjoyment by the managers, and,
above all, the downright fun there is in gipseying
the world over, all combined to make it pleasant
and satisfactory to all participants. The number
in atter.danee was unusually large. The day wore
away with music and dance and agreeable prome
nade, itp4 it is doubtful if a single one of the rev
ellers came away without indulging the hope that
the first pie-nie of the season would not also be the
last.
la GONE Roam—The 125th regiment P. V., Col.
Higgins, from Blair and Huntingdon, leftfor home
at 10 o'clock, last night, having been paid off and
mustered out of the service. This regiment has
been highly spoken of, and leaves an honorable
record on the pages of the country's history. They
bear with them a flag presented by the State after
the battle of Antietam, stained with -the blood of
the regimental color-bearer—the third one killed
in the performance of that hazardous duty. It will
be given to his parents: A public reception awaits
the regiment at Hollidaysburg.
