STAR OF THE NORTH,!
Bloomslnrg, Wednesday Sfptemler 1!, 1860.
Ow motion of Col. Freeze, Solomon B.
Boter, Esq., a member of the Bar of Nor
thumberland county, wa admitted to prac
tice as an Attorney, in the several Courts of
the county of Columbia.
Mus Susaw E Fry, of this place, has our
Grateful thanks for that fine lot of Isabella
Gropes she sent os, 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 com:.
We learn that Morrison Cortptght, son
of Andrew Cortright Esq , of Beach Grove,
Luzerne county, in attempting to jump from
the coal train while in motion, was caught
under the wheels of the cars, and had his
arm and leg cut off besides being otherwise
horribly mutilated. The accident we on
demand occurred not far from Shickshin
The Bloomsburg Academical Lyceum on
last Friday evening passed a resolution per
nutting 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 parties.
. The editor of the Star is on leave of ab
sence for a few days, and unwittinglj placed
this edition under our charge. As he re
quired no pledges from us as to our politi
cal proclivities, we are strongly tempted to
haul down "Breckinridge and Lane" and
hoist the name of some other candidates, in
order to punish 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 Nichts. l ook nut 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 or 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,
thev 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
oo, see to it that ni-ht finds them at home.
Wanted! Competent Business Men.
The demand for skilful and accomplished
accuntants is perpetual, and constantly in
creasing with the increase of production
and trade. Young men wishing to prepare
themselves' for commercial pnsruits will
find no Institution in this condry possess
ing advantages equal to those afforded by
the Iron City College, of Pittsburgh. Pa ,
which is now patronized by every Stale in
Thanks. Mr. Henry Zuppingrfr, 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 still has more, which he wishes
to dispose of. Those in want of peaches
for preserving, or other purposes, would do
well by purchasing of our townsman, Mr.
I Town. Dr. Jacob Horlaeher, the c
centric'mediator" between the North and
the South, will lecture at this place in the
Court House, on next Monday evening, at
early candle-light The Doctor will prove
his political opinions to be io accordance
?ith truth and righteousness, and that they
ere sustained fully sustained by the au
thority of the Bible. His lectures are highly
spoken of by the Democratic papers, wher
ever he has spoken them to the people.
His facts and arguments are conclusive
he invites all parties, persons and sects.
Mr. Horlaeher will also deliver a lecture
in MiSinville, this county, on Saturday the
15lh insU, in the evening, hoping that the
friends will make preparations for hirn.
. He also has Charts for sale which he sells
for twenty-five cents. We commend the
Doctor to the people of the State, every
one of whom should be in possession of
one of hi platforms.
Nxws or the Latest Date. There is a
rumor steadily circulating which is scarcely
dreamed of outside the suburbs of this town.
It has quite inundated all gossip and ex
citement on the course, 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 mouth-piece of the
millions. As we have had nearly three
year's experience in the ediloiial life, the
matter of which we are about to speak, does
"not mania us. knowing it to occur periodi
jcnlly. The whole rumor grew out of the
.arrival of a large and splendid stock of Fall
and Winter Good at the Clothing Empo
rium of our townsman,, David Lowenbero,
pa Main Street, Bloomsburg. He has the
largest and best assortment of cloths and
jcasimeres ever brought to this place by him,
all of which ba U prepared to make up and
sell cheap for cash. He also has a case of
"splendid jWehy to which ha iflTitsa atteo-

RECOMMENDATIONS FROM PRESI
DENTS OF COLLEGES.
Within the last few weeks the Publishers
have received flattering testimonials of the
merits of this edition, from nearly Thirty
Presidents of as many of the lending Col
leges of the United States. Among them
are from Presidents Frelinghnysen of Bul
gers, Walker of Harvard, Hopkins of Wil
liams, Stearns of Amherst, Comrnings of
Middletownj Nolt of Union, Wavland of
Providence, Jackson of Hobert, Woods of
Brunswick, Lord of Dartmouth. Pease of

drews of Marietta, Fisher of Hamihon,
Read of Shunl.fl, Smrtevant of Illinois,
Reynolds of Illinois, Collins of Wilkinson,
Anderson of Rocl-ester, Wallace of Mon
mouth, Curtis of Knox, &c. In them are
expressions like the lollowmg:
"An honor to American scier.ee, tasie
and cri;iism." 'An enduring value and
authority.- 'Never found any work which
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 country and
the English language, I rt-joice in the won
derful standard excellence, as well as celeb
rity, your Dictionary has attained. It is a
work for the present, and for all 'coming
time.' 'Stands unquestionably preeminent.'
There seems every prospect that it will Le
the standard book for this country, at least,
if not for England. I am content it should
be so.' 'This truly great and national work.L
'A complete apparatus for all purposes ot
reading and understanding American and
English literature. It is difficult to con
ceive of anything that could be added to
fit it for these ends.' 'Avast treasury of
knowledge, the whole of which is needed
by every one who us-s the English lan
guage, either as a writer, a speaker, or a
reader.' 'Ought to be a oart of the furni
ture of every American.' 'We long ago
accepied Webster a the Standard in our
College, and the experience of every term
strengthens our conviction of the wisdom
of our choice.' 'So long as you continue
to incorporate all the improvement which
are developed in the science of lexico
graphy,' &c &c.' June 6, 1860.

lESSRS. ZUPPINGER & R0BBINS, of
Bloomsburg,' having purchased the ex
clusive right of ihe above valuable Impro
ved Chear Patent Sewing Machine, for
the Couniyof Columbia, will be hppy to
supply their friends with the article for the
accommrdalionof themselves and lamiiies.
The following are 6ome of the superior
advantages this 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
wiih more or lee difficulty J not so with
RAYMOND'S, a child can manage it ir. two
hours, and it is threaded easier thaa a com
3. One of the moM valuable features of
this Machine, is the smallness and the
compactness of its mechanism.
4. It can be attached to a hoard, table or
s;and, in operating order, and removed in
less than half a minute.
5. It greatly economizes the thread, and
yet produces a seam, sufficiently strong for
any work lor which it is intended, 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 seam is so strong if well done, that the
Ftongext material will tear before the
seam will give way.
7. Among the array of Patent Sewing
Machines, there are none so cheap and
durable as Raymond's Patent, but no Ma
chine is adapted to all kinds of work as
expedience has proven. There are perhaps
none so 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 be pleases, waves, leaves and flowers,
etc', can be represented or imitated.
9. It is particularly adapteu to all kinds
of stitcbirg such as gentlemen's shirt,
bosoms, ristbands, collars, etc., and all
kinds of ladies' sewing, including silks,
lawns, delaines, calicoes, dusters, etc., ex
cepting for men's heavy wear, this Machine
is ralhr.r too light oS construction.
10. But we all admit, that the advantage
to heal'h, and principally to the vision or
eyesight, inuueed by the use of Sewing
Machines, surpasses infinitely all oiher ad
vantages. ;i. This Machine 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, it the seam is leu unfastened
you can draw it out in three seconds and
?ave the thread.
For sale by the undersigned, at their re
spective residences, in Bloomsburg, who
will put the Machine in operation and give
all necessary instruction.
