"Saow.The first snow,of the season made
its appearance no Sunday last ; at one time
covering the ground completely. Tbe fall
was light, but the day very blustery, cold
and dreary. We have ever since been for
ciblr reminded of mid winter.
Thirk are only two prisoners in oor coun
ty jail at present, but quite a number rutt
ing at large who had ought to be there.
We hear of depredations being committed
nesrly every day in the county.
Dr. John has now a good opportunity to
prove his friendship for the soldier, by ap
pointing soma returned veteran as his clerk,
but he won't dc it, so long as any of the
home guard are available.
National Thawb.suivin. President John
eon has recommended to the people of these
United States that they set apart the first
Thursday in December next as a day of
Thanksgiving.. . This is in accordance with
lbs time-honored custom, and . it is hoped
the day will be generally observed.
Cideb has been aotd in our market, "viihin
a week past, at prices ranging from $3 00 to
S10.CO. This is enormous when we con
sider the price of apples and tbe labor re
quired to make it. A barrel holding 40
gallons, or 160 quarts, would retail at this
rate, at 6 cents per quart for new cider.
Ma. Jo'hca Fettebman , of this place, has
deuce, two doors west of the American
Hocse, belonging to one Mr. Swartz, of
Washington city, for the sura of f S3, 000 00 j
three thousand dollars. This property is suit
ably situated for business; but considered
vtllsold. Real estate is rather high in tbis
place, and seems to be still advanciog.
We have been informed that some of the
fanatics, belonging to the Methodist Episco
pal Church, of this place, were disposed to
find fault with their Minister, on account of
bis having invited a preacher of opposite
politic, but professing the same religion, to
' seat in his pulpit, not long since. It seems
nobody but a shoddyite is fit to sit in their
presence, especially in the pulpit. Go in
what congregation yon choose and yon will
find sums fools, fanatics and knaves in it.
' Fiat. On Friday last a fire broke out in
tbe bouse of Harbt Scakk colored bostler
at the Exchange Hotel situate in East
Bloomsburg, burning tbe root off and doing
much damage to tbe second story. Tbe
contents were all saved but not without be
ing more or less daKed. Tbe house was
frame and insured in tbe Wyoming Com
pany. Tire flames were extinguished be
fore doing anyf further damage by tbe
prompt action of our citizens forming them
selves into a bucket and water company.
Mft. M. Hamlis, of Catawissa, has par
chased lie right to build and sell Mr. W. D.
flarrah'e National Gate, patented on the 20tb
of September, 1864. He will sell farm,
township, or county rights. It is the best pa-
teat gate we have ever examined. It is light,
can be made of almost any size and easy of
construction. In fact its simplicity is one of
its beat qualities. Every farmer.and other
property owner, should have this gate. All
they have to do is, to boy the right of Mr.
IIaxlin, to build and use it on their premi
ses. Any person can construct one after
casing the model.
- The CROCKaTKEB of ibis place need a lit
tle blowing op foe keeping the prices at tbe
present high figures. AH articles in their
line teem to be sold at too high a price
Tbe article of batter, for instance, is entirely
too hih-rfifly cents a pound ! Another arti
cle which we are paying too much for, is
potatoes one dollar per bushel, and of a
poor quality at that. . But a few weeks ago
they could be bought in oar market for fifty
tenis per bushel, which ia all they were
worth, considering tbe quality; and to-day;
if yon want any,jou most pay one dollar per
bushel. What is the cause of this ? They
are not scarce, aa large crops were raised.
Bat the groceryxaen, have done the basi-
cess, somehow, and there Is not one of
them "willing to own that be advanced the
price. It ia an outrage, and should be abated.
The price of sugars, molassas, coffee and tea,
is nearly, or quite, as high as it was when
goldjwaa quoted at $2.87. This ahould not
be.Jwhen gold ia quoted at $1.43. The war
fceinj over and gold down, prices should
coma tuck ta their old standard. This we
have frr, bst ia tain, for cionthi.

The Soldier Vote -Only five votes were

It is reported on good authority that Pres

A man can get along without advertising,
so can a wagon whhoat greasing, but it goes
hard. Some of our merchants in this place
are trying tbe experiment of selling goods
without advertising, but from all appear
ances they do not sell a dollar's worth per
day. The people do not know what they
have for sale, and how are they going to find
out unless the goods are advertised in the
local papers? The man who advertises his
goods will find customers, and can always
recommend what he offers to the public.
A Grad Jury, composed of respectable
people of Columbia county, reported against
letting the Court Rooms to traveling show?,
political meetings, or anything of that char
acter, some six rrontbs or a year ago. The
other day the Jury were denounced as
"copperheadi",'-" by a blandisher of the
Methodist Church, for prohibiting shows,
&c, the use of that building, and remarked
that "the church could be bad." We con
cluded that some of the church buildings in
this place could be prostituted no more by
holding shows in them than they have beeu
with Abolition harangues during four years
past. They are running into Theatres rap
idly. Some time aioce, a copy of cur paper, di
rected to Henhy Y. Slater, a regular sub
scriber, wat returned by the Post Master, at
this place, ma: Led, contrary to the law,
"Reason not called for." Now, the fact of
the buine3s is, and we hare no reason to
disbelieve our subscriber, this paper was
called tor, and Mr. Slater was told no such
paper was there for him. Mr. Slater al
leges that he was in the habit of calling for
his paper regularly, every week, until it was
discontinued, af:er the fashion as above
stated, by the Abolition Post Mister. This
kind of work we do not like, and will not
put up with it longer than we can help it.
What makes tbe matter look very suspi
cious, we called at the Post Office, imme
diately after the paper in question was dis
continued, and demanded the uncalled for
copies, but the parties acting aa assistants
in the office could not supply us with any
such copies. Vet the paper was returned
maiked "uncalled for."
When Gen. Lee surrenderedthere was
gieat opposition by iha "Republicans" to
every appearance of lenity towards the
''rebeU." Some of the former even called
Gen. Grant a "traitor," because of the terms
be made with Gen. Lee. What da these
straight-laced advocates of the bemp doc
trine, think cf tbe daily pardons granted by
the President to leading "rebels I" Humph ?
General Grant hat recommended the
discharge cf all major and brigadier gen

A lecture was delivered at Philadelphia,

opon tbe Liberation of Ireland and its An

subject of England's treachery and Erin's
wrongs was discussed, and a determination
expressed to make Ireland a lree, sover
