STAR OF THE NORTH.
3!oomslnr?, Wcdntsday Srptfmler II, 1860.
Ow motion of Col. Freeze, Solomon B.
Botkr, Esq., a member of the Bar of Nor
thumberland county, wa admitted to prac
tice as an Attorney, in the several Courts of
the coanty of Columbia.
Mrs Sdsaw E Fry, of ihis place, has our
grateful thanks for that fine lot of Isabella
Grapes she pent of, a few days since. They
were splendid and very palpatable. This is
an evidence that the Printers are not always
forgotten. May her shadow never diminish,
and the gropes continue to come.
We learn that Morrison Cortpight, son
of Andrew Cortright Esq , of Beach Grove,
Luzerne coanty, in attempting to jump from
the coal train while in motion, was caught
under the wheels of the cars, and had bis
arm and leg cut ofT besides being otherwise
terribly mnti'ated. The accident we nn
derstand occurred not far from Shickshin
Thc Bloomsburg Academical Lyceam on
last Friday evening passed a resolution per
mitting visitors to be present. The next
question for discussion is: Resolved, that
the sale of intoxicating liquors should be
prohibited by law. We think that a union
between the Society and the Young Men's
Christain Association at this place would
prove beneficial to both parlies.
Th editor of the Star is on leave of ab
nence for a few days, and onwiuinglj placed
this edition tinder oar charge. As he re
quired no pledges from as as to oar politi
cal proclivities, we are strongly tempted to
haul down "Breckinridge and Lane" and
hoist the name of some other candidates, in
order to pnnish him for his thoughtlessness.
We should do so most assuredly, if we could
find better men. Any unusual excellence
in this week's paper may safely be attribu
ted to the editor's absence.
Out at Nights. look rut for your boys,
fathers and mothers, when night comes.
Then is nothing more ruinous to their mor
als than running about at that time. Un
der cover of darkness they acquire their ed
ucation of crime ; they learn to be rowdy
ish, if not absolutely vicious ; they catch
up loose talk, they hear sinful thoughts,
they see obscene things they become
reckless and riotous. If you would save
from vulgarity, save them from dissipation,
save them from ruin, save them from pris-
see to it that nhxht finds them at home.
Wanted ! Competent BosiNfss Men.
The demand (or skilful and accomplished
accuntants is perpetual, and constantly in
creasing with the iucrease of production
and trade. Young men wishing to prepare
themselves' for commercial pnsruiis will
find no Institution in this conUry possess
ing advantages eqnal to those afforded by
the Iron City College, of Pittsburgh. Pa ,
which is now patronized by every State in
Thanks. Mr. Henry 2uppir.gir, of this
place, will please accept our profound
thanks for the presentation of some most
superior peaches, which he raised upon his
lot. They were of a large size and alto
gether of a superior kind. Mr. Zuppinger
is truly a Horticulturist and a fruit grower,
and but one visit to his lot is necessary to
fully convince any person of the fact. He
has the best and most profitably cultiva
ted lot for fruit, in Bloomsburg. He has had
peaches and other- fruit for sale, during the
early part of the season, and all probabili
ties are, he slill has more, which he wishes
to dispose of. Thoe in want of peaches
for preserving, or other purposes, would do
well by purchasing ol oar townsman, Mr.
In Town. Dr. Jacob Horlacher, the er
centric"mediator" between the North and
the South, will lecture at this place in the
Court House, on next Monday evening, at
early candle-iight. The Doctor will prove
his political opinions to be in accordance
with truth and righteousness, and that they
are sustained folly sustained by the au
thority of the Bible. His lectures are highly
spoken of by the Democratic papers, wher
ever be has spoken them to the people.
His facts and arguments are conc!uive
he invites all parties, persons and sects.
Hr. Horlacher will also deliver a lecture
' in MiSinville, this coanty, on Saturday the
lothinst., in the evening, hoping that the
friends will make preparations for him.
He also has Charts for sale which be sells
for twenty-five cents. We commend the
Doctor to the people of the State, every
one of whom should be in possession of
cue of his platforms.
News or the Latest Date, There is a
ram or steadily circulating which is scarcely
dreamed of outside the suburbs of this town.
It has quite inundated all gossip and ex
jcitement on the coarse, and fairly brought
commotion to a perfect jar. - Printers are
expected to learn the latest news first, and
then communicate it to the world, thereby
making themselves the month-piece of the
million. As we have had nearly three
year's experience in the editotial life, the
matter of which we are about to speak, does
not startle ns, knowing it to occnr periodi
jcally. The whole rnmor grew oat of the
arrival of a large and splendid stock of Fall
and Winter Good at the Clothing Empo
rium of oar townsman, , David Lowinbero,
jdii Main Street, Bloorasbarg. He has the
largest and best assortment of cloths and
rasirneres ever brought to this place by him,
all oi which he is prepared to make op and
sell cheap for cash. He also has a case of
"splendid Jewelry to which he invite i atiea-

"An honor to American scier.ce, taste

so uniformly satisfied my inquiries.' 'Has
ever since been my constant companion in
my practice at the bar, and for the last five
years upon the bench. I have ever found
it a safe counsellor, and an indispensable
help in the preparation and decision of
cases.' 'For the sake of my couniry and
the English language, I rejoice in the won
derful standard excellence, as well as celeb
rity, your Dictionary ha attained. It is a
work for the present, and for all coming
time.' 'Stands unquestionably preeminent.'
There seems every prospect that it will te
the standard book lor this country, at least,
if not for England. I am content it should
be so.' 'This truly great and national work.
'A complete apparatus for all purposes ol
reading and undemanding American and
English literature. It is difficult to con
opive of anvthiner that conld b? added lo
fit it for these ends ' 'Avast treasury of!
knowledge, the whole of which is needed
by every one who us-s the Engtish lan
guage, either as a writer, a speaker, or a
reader.' 'Ought to te a part of the furni
ture of every American.' 'We long ano
accepted Webster the Standard in our
College, and the experience of every term
strengthens our conviction ol the wisdom
ol our choice.' 'So long as yon continue
to incorporate all the improvement which
are developed in the science of lexico
araphy.' &c, &c' June 6, 1860.

PUICE tlO EACH.
TITESSRS. ZUPPINGER k ROBBINS, of
Bloomsburg, having purchased the ex
clusive riaht of the above valuable Impro
ved Chear Patent Sewing Machine, for
the County of Columbia, will be happy to
supply their friends with the article for the
accommr dation of themselves and (amities.
The following are some of the superior
advantages tbis implement possesses, viz:
1. It sews from 400 to 600 tight stitches
2 Double thread Machines are from the
more complicated character of their mech
anism invariably managed and threaded
with more or les difficulty J not so with
RAYMOND'S, a child can manage ii ir. two
hours, and it is threaded easier lhaa a com
3. One of the moM valuable features of
this Machine, is ihe smallness and the
compactness of its mechanism.
4. It can be attached to a hoard, table or
siand, in operating order, and removed in
les than half a minute.
5. It greatly economizes the thread, and
yet produces a seam, sufficiently strong for
any work lor which it is intemleti, a qual
ification not known to all kinds of Sewing
6. No human hand is capable of produ
cing a seam so regular and systematic
The veam i so trong if well done, ihat the
st.-ongei-t material will tear before the i
seam will give way. 1
7. Among Ihe array of Patent Sewing
Machines, ihere are none so cheap anil
durable as Raymond's Patent, but no Ma
chine is adapted to all kinds of work as
expe'ience has proven. There are perhaps
none to realy useful, doing such a variety
of wore for the immediate use of the fam
ily circle, and at such a moderate price as
8. The operator can shape his seam jnst
as he pleases, waves, leaves and flowers,
etc, can be represented or imitated.
9. It is particularly adapteu lo all kinds
of stitchirg such as gentlemen's shirts,
bosoms, ristbands, collars, etc., and all
kinds of ladies' sewing, including silks,
lawns, delaines, calicoes, dusters, etc., ex
cepting for men'sheavy wear, this Machine
is rather too light o! construction.
10. But we all admit, that the advantage
lo heal'h, and principally to the vision or
eyesiaht, inooced by the use of Sewing
Machines, surpae&es infinitely all oiher ad
vantages. ;i. This Macliine fastens the seam al
ways itself, but if the operator wishes it
unlastened or open, there is a way lor it
too, thus you can have it fastened or not,
as you please, which is, sometimes, espe
cially for beginners, a very favorable cir
cumstance. If the seam is left unfastened,
yon can draw it out iii three seconds and
;avi the thread.
For sale by ihe undersigned, at their re
spective residences, in Bloomsburg, who
will put the Machine in operation and give
all necessary instruction.
