continues, and is almost to impossible to

to cave. We don't mind drinking oat of an

Fisuermen's Hotel This is the name
of a' public house, under the supervision of
Mr. Ezekiel Cole, located in Sn&ar!oaf twp.,
Columbia county, close by Big Fishing
creek, and upon the public road. Mr. Cole
keeps a tolerably good hotel for that sec
tion of country it does first rate. He has a
handsome new house, ami from what we
know is doing a snug business. The most
important items about a public house are
these : good beds, good and plenty of eata
Met and drinkables; all of which can be
found at the Fishermen's Hotel, and that of
the first order. Those going in his direction
will please give him a call.
We have been credibly informed that the
Congressional Conferees of this District,
composed of the Counties of Wyoming, Lu
zer.ie. Columbia and Moi.tour, will meet at
the Exchange Hotel, in this place, on Fri
day next, for the purpose of making a Con
gressional nomination. There will be three
candidates before the Conference, Hon- Geo.
Scott, Hon H. B. Wright, and W. M Piatt,
Esq. We will not speculate any in this no
tice as to the chances for a nomination of
either of the candidates. Nominate a good
man and be can be elected this fall without
a doubt. We'll trust in the deliberations of
Abcse or Public Mem. rlf those who are
daily railing the President, or some mem
ber of his Cabinet, find themselves likely
to exhaust their stock of invectives, they
can renew their supply by the study of cer
' tain productions of their predecessors in
the same vile business. In a publication
now before us, issued in 1800, we find
WASHINGTON charged with having "em
bezzled the public money," with being
"knowingly perjured," being "a hypocrite,"
and .with having ''sacrificed the dearest
rights of his country ;" while the incumbent
President was assailed for "having comple
ted the scene of ignominy which Washing
ton began." Here is an array of epithets
ready made, and qoite as ingenious as any
which now blacken the pages of the Re
"Everybody's Lawyer," and "Tbe Fami

RECOMMENDATIONS FROM PRESI
DENTS OF COLLEGES.
Within the last few weeks the Publishers
have received flattering iestimonials of the
merits of this edition, from nearly Thirty
Presidents of as many of tbe leading Col
leges of the United States. Among them
are fiom Presidents Frelinahuysen of Rut
gers, Walker of Harvard, Hopkins of Wil
liams, Stearns of Amherst, Cummings of
Middletown, Nott of Union, Way land of

mouth, Curtis of Knox, &c. In them are
expressions like the following:
"An honor to American science, taste
and cri i'ism." 'An enduring value and
authority.' 'Never found any work which
so uniformly satisfied my inquiries.' 'Has
ever since been ray constant companion in
my practice at the bar, and for the last fire
ears upon the bench. I have ever found
it a safe counsellor, and an ici'ispp nsable
help in the preparation and decision of
caes.' 'For the sake of my country and
the English languaae, I rejoice in the won
derful standard excellence, as well as celeb
rity, your Dictionary has attained. It is a

strengthens our conviction of Ihe wi.dom
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.

XTESSRS. ZUPP1NGER & ROBBINS, of
- Bloomsburg, tiaving purchased lle ex
clusive right of ihe above valuable I in pro
ved Chear Paient Sewing Machine, for
the County of Columbia, will be happy in
supply their friends with the article Inr the
accommodation of themselves and lamilies.
The following are Some of the superior
advantages this implement possesses, viz:
1. It sews from 400 ro 600 light stitches
per minute. .
2. Double thread Machines ate from the
more complicated character ol iheir mech
anism invariaMy munaged and tl readed
with more or less difficulty ; not so with
RAYMOND'S, a child can manage it in two
hours, and it is threaded easier thaa a com
3. One of the most valuable features of
this Machine, is the smallness and tbe
compactness of its mechanism.
4. It can be attached to a board, table or
siand, in operating order, arul removed in
less than half a minute.
5. It greatly economizes tlWthread, and
yet produces a seam, sufficiently strong for
any work tor 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
strongest material will tear before the
seam will give way.
7. Among the array of Pa'ent Sawing
Machines, there are none so cheap and
durable as Raymond's Patent, but no Ma
chine is adapted to all kinds of work as
experience 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 just
as he pleases, waves, leaves and flowers,
etc., can be represented or imitated.
9. It is particularly adapteu to all kinds
of stitchirg such as gentlemen's shirts,
boi-oms, ristbands, collars, etc., and all
kinds of ladies' sewing, including silks,
lawns, delaines, calicoes, dusiers. etc., ex
cepting for men'sheavy wear, this Machine
is rather too light of construction.
10. Bui we all admit, that the advantage
to health, and principally to the vision or
eyesight, inooced by if.e use of Sewing
Machines, surpasbes iofiuitely all oilier ad
vantages. J 1. This Machine fastens the seam al
ways itself, but if the . operator wishes it
unfastened 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 ihe seam is left unfastened,
you can draw it oul in three seconds and
save the thread. '
For sale by the undersigned, at their re
spective residences, in Bloomsburg, who
will put the Machine in operation and give
all uecesary instruction. .
