1 'Severely Injured. We have been informed
that Samuel Edmondson of Covington town
ship, had both his arms broken, in two places,
one day last week. It appears that Mr. Ed
mondson had a quarrel with another person,
who seized a handspike and struck Mr. E.
twice, inflicting the injuries above stated.
Fire. On Wednesday night, February 2Cth,
the house or John Troy of Morris township,
was destroyed by fire, during the absence of
the family. Mr. T. also lost nearly all his
household goods. Tho fire ii supposed to have
originated from a stovepipe. The house wai

Shanty Burned. We learn that.the shanty
belonging to Charles Macumber, on the Sin
ncmohoning creek was destroyed by fire on
Thursday, February 20th. There was a con
siderable quantity ol provisions, besides the
clothing of about twenty men, in the shanty
at the time of the accident ; which was all
consumed. The loss is over three hundred
dollars." .
-'The Timber Business. From inquiries
made during the last ten days, and the infor
mation obtained, wo incline to the opinion
that the quantity of timber taken out this
.season will fall considerable short of what it
lias been for several years past. However, as
there is still a flne chance" of snow on the
ground and the hauling tolerable good, the
quantity may be largely increased as j et.

If ARRisBt'Bfs, March 3, liG2.
Dear Journal: The Legislation of the
last week has been very little improvement on
the previous, so far a the interest ol your
readers is cencerned ; but there is other news
of a most startling nature, and which may
have treading upon its heels news of still
greater importance. We are on the eve of a
great battle, and one that is likely to termi
nate the rebellion. An impression has gone
abroad that the rebels will retreat toRichmond.
If, however, they make a stand this side of it
in force, we shall have one of the most san
guinary conflicts to chronicle that ever took
place in any age or country.
During the past week a regiment arrived
from Erie, and another from Kittanning
these, together with the regiments at Camp
Curtin, and in the different camps in Philadel
phia, are now being forwarded on to Wash
ington as fast as transportation can be secured,
and by the day this reaches your readers,
Pennsylvania will have twelve more regiments
in the field, and a great battle may have been
fought. We are looking for it every minute ;
and in order to prepare for it, a joint resolution
has been passed, placing means at the disposal
of the Governor to procure Hospitals, and re
move any Pennsylvanians who may be woun
ded to the State for medical attendance. To
carry out this measure, the Governor has
despatched Agents to the difierent towns along
tbe lines ol the Rail Roads to secure suitable
buildings for Hospitals, and a large number
ol Surgeons and nurses iu the cities and large
towns are holding themselves in readiness to
go forward at a moment's notice. Although
telegiaphic news is now contraband of war,
enough is known to justify the belief that a
few more days will tell the tale. The whole
army on the Potomac from Roinney to Wash
ington is moving southward!
A bill was passed this week taking from
the Pennsylvania Reserve Corps, which was
formed in pursuance of an act ol Assembly in
May last, the right fo elect their own officers,
and vesting the appointments in the Governor.
There are said to be some seventy vacancies,
mostly caused by resignations, in the. fifteen
regiments, and the commanding officers would
not order . elections to fill them because the
men frequently elect unqualified officers, and
the regiments thereby become demoralized.
The investigating Committee has had the
Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania Rail
Road company before it, and quite a number
of other persons, but up to this time not a
particle of evidence has been obtained to im
plicate the company in using corruption to
procure legislation. The whole thing must
culminate to the entire discomfiture ol those
who made such dire threats to invalidate the
commutation act by charging home bribery
and corruption upon the company.
The little bills now daily passed are of no
manner of importance, but among them I do
not see a single local measure from your
neighborhood. A happy people you miiht'be
if yo'ur want nothing. Yours, Sr-ECKS.
What Wk got at Bowlino Gkeen. Our
success at Bowling Green, writes a correspon
dent, is much more important than at first
supposed, viewing it merely in reference to
what property we have taken possession of.
The rebels did not destroy as much of their
stores as we imagine, but concealed them in
various places in the town and neighborhood,
hoping that they might escape the vigilant
eyes ot our quartermasters and commissaries.
But their hopes were vain. Such quanties of
provisions of all sorts, flour, pork, &c. have
been found, that we should have no difficulty
in subsisting our army for a considerable time,
even if we should receive no supplies whatever
from the north. In every imaginable place
these articles have been found up in garrets,
down In cellars, in wells, in cisterns, in houses
belongingto professed Union men, and, indeed,
in every situation which any individual wou'd
be apt to select as suitable for concealment.
This organized system of hiding was not con
fined to the town. . great many hundred
bags and b-trrels of corn were discovered con
cealed in tho woods iu the vicinity. It was
astonishing how speedily and surely these
were hunted up. No matter whether the
hiding place was one, two or a dozen miles off,
the hidden goods were smelled out, and a
party was soon on the way lor the purpose of
bringing them in. I shall not pretend to esti
mate the valu s of the property thus captured.
I have not seen the whole ol it, but have been
informed that little less than a hundred thou
sand dollars' worth have been found.
Re-Opening Trade. -It is regarded pi obablc
that as soon as the rebel armies are bejten out
of Tennessee, the order of Mr. Chase, preven
ting the exj,ortation of provisions, medicines
and the like into the South, will be rescinded,
so far as Tennessee is concerned, nnd that
that whole country will again be opened to
commercial transactions. As it is possible to
draw supplies of cotton and tobacco from 'at
least one-half of the South by way of Tennes
see, the opening of tradt in this quarter would
soon produce a marked effect upon the general
industry of tho country. A million of bales
of cotton could easily be gathered" by inland
commerce from the South, and this amount
furnished to our factories would again set tiieni
going, with a portion to spare for the English
market. With a blockade on the coast and an
active internal commerce, the North will bo
benefited in every way ; first, by the carriage
of cotton, tobacco, hemp, and other southern
products through the country, and their trans
portation to Europe ; and second, by th sale
of goods to such of tho Southern States as
are thus re-opened, which are now in great
need of them.
Slave-Catching in the Army. The Pitts
burg Gazette says : "The prompt passage
through the IIousu of Mr. Blair's bill to pro
vent slave-catching in the army is one of the
most cheering signs of the times. The oppo
nents of the bill were headed, as usual, 1 y the
inevitable Vallandigham, whose secession
proclivities are matters ot history. This sub
ject should have been attended to long ago,
but it comes in good time now, when our ar
mies are moving inio slavo territory. We
hope the Senate will put the bill through with
the praise-worthy promptness of the House.
We trust Congress will follow up this good
work by abolishing slavery in tbe District of
Columbia. Whatever reason pro-slavery men
many find for non-interference with slavery in
the States, they can find none worthy of atten
tion for keeping up such a barbarous and dis
graceful institution in tho Capital city of the
Ration, where it is a standing iosult to the
twenty millions ol citizens of the free States.
Away with it, ye trusted men of Congess
.Xever adjourn until that foul blot is wiped out.
That's so. The Difference between the Re
publican party and tbe few desperate men who
still have the audacity to claim tho title of
Democracy, is, that while the Republicans are
striving in the Cabinet, in Congress, and oo
the battle field, to crush out the rebellion, the
leaders ot the Democracy (?) are laboring,
with the aid of slander and misrepresentation,
to crush out the Republicans. While the Re
publican party is endeavoring to counteract
the influences and tbe cause of rebellion, the
Democratic party is struggling to shield it and
give it strength. What honest man can long
pause in his preferences and duty with such
evidences before bim.
"The Pope. A Turin correspondent of the
Paris Presse writing on the 1st ult. says. I
have seen a letter from Rome of the 28th Jan
nary, containing minute details respecting
the health of tho Pope. It states . that Pics
IX, has of late been subject to frequent at
tack of fever caused by chronic indigestion.
His physician recommended exercise In the
open air on foot, or at least in a carriage.
Unfortunately thePope's legs are greatly swol
len, aud he cannot go abroad. He has to be
rolled in a chair to pass from one room to an
other. It is not true that he has been bled, as
reported; such a thing was never proposed.
It has been remarked, not without uneasiness,
that for several days he Las been affected by
disposition to somnolency, and cannot by any
means be diverted from yielding to it. This,
I am told, is the most serious symptom of the
Holy Father's malady.
A New Letter Envelope. A new style'of
letter envelope has recently been invented,
and is being introduced. The envelope is
open at the end only ; and when the letter is
slipped in, the overlap is so contrived 4hat the
stamp is laid upon it", in the manner of a seal.
Thus the adhesiveness of the stamp is guaran
ty for the security of the envelope. But by
an aditional contrivance, the overlap is so ar
ranged that a portion of the stamp with which
it is scaled fastens to the letter beneath ; and
in opening the envelope, the stamp, on which
a postmark and date is impressed, remains,
not on the envelope, where it is useless, but
on the letter, where it is often of great impor- j
tance to business men, who need to prove the
date of mailing of a letter or remittance.
A Shrewd Dodge. We heard of a shrewd
dodge, says the New York Post, which has
been practiced upon the retail trade of this
city. Some knave cuts the coupons off "the
$50 seven-thirty treasury notes, and passes
the note as a demand note in trade, thus
pocketing soma $10.95, the amount of the
coupons, for three years, which he may collect
half yearly upon presenting them at the gov
ernment offices. Traders should bear in mind
tint there are no ?00 demand notes, only $5's,
$10's and $20's.
Dead Rebels Found with Their Hand? Cut
Otf. The following postscript (says the Cin
cinnati Commercial) was added to a business
letter written at Somerset, Kentucky, on the
21st inst. "Since the Cumberland river has
fallen, forty or fifty dead secesh soldiers have
been found with their hands cut off, supposed
to have been the act of fugitives in crossing
the river on their memorable retreat, to pre
vent them sinking the boats.

TAL MONTHLY There are periods
in the world's history marked by extraordinary
and violent crises, sudden as the breaking forth
of a volcano, or the bursting of a storm on the
ocean. These erisesweep away in a moment tbe
landmarks of generations. They call out fresh
talent, hnd give to the old new direction. It is
then that new ideas are horn, new theories devel
oped. Such periods demand fresh exponents, and
new men for expounders.
This Continent has lately boen convulsed by
an upheaving so sudden and terrible that tho re
lations of alt men and all classes to each other are
violently disturbed, and people look about for the
elements with which to sway the storm and di
rect the whirlwind. Just at present, we do not
know what. u this is to bring forth ; but we do
know that great results must flow from such ex
trari.l:u;jr commotions.
At a juncture so solemn and so important, there
is a special need that the intellectual force of the
country should be active and efficient. It is a
time for great minds to t-peak their thoughts bold
ly.'and to take position as the ad vance guard. To
this end, there is a special want unsupplied. It'is
that of an Independent Magazine, which shall be
open to the first intellects of the land, and which
shall treat the issuo presented, and to be presented
to the country, in atone no way tempered by par
tizanship, or influenced by fear, favor or the hope
of reward, which" shall seizo and grapple with
the momentous subjects that the present disturbed
state of affairs heave to the surface, and which
can not be laid uside or neglected.
To meet this want, the undersigned have com
menced, under the editorial charge of Charles G.
Leland, the publication of a new Magazine, devot
ed to Literatnre and National Policy.
In Politics, it will advocate, with all the force
at its command, measures best adapted to preserve
the oneness and integrity of these United States.
It will never yield to tbe idea of any disruption
of this Republic, peaceably or otherwise; and it
will discuss with honesty and impartiality what
must be done to save it. In this department, some
of tho most eminent statesmen of tho time will con
tribute regularly to its pages.
In Literature, it will be sustained by the best
writers and ablest thinkers of this country.
Among its attractions will be presented, in an
early number, a' New Serial of American Life,"
by Richard Kimball, Esq., the very popular author
of "The Revelations of Wall Street," -St. Leger,"
&c. A series of papers by Hon. Horace Greely,
embodying tho distinzuished author's observations
on the erowth and development of the Great
West. A series of articles by the author of
Through the Cotton States," containing the re
sult of on extended tour in the seashore Slave
States, just prior to the breaking out of the war.
and presenting astartling and truthful pioture of
the real condition of that region. No pains will
be spared to render the literary attractions of the
Continental both brilliant and substantial Tho
lyrical or doicriptivo talents of the most eminent
literati have been promised to its pages ; and
nothing will be admitted which will not be dis
tinguished by marked energy, originality, and
solid strength. Avoiding every influeuce or as
sociation partaking of clique or coterie, it will bo
open to all contributions of real merit, even from
writers differing materially in their views ; the
only limitations required being that of devotion
tojthe Union, and the only standard of acceptance
that of intrinsic excellence.
The Editorial Department will embrace, in ad
dition to vigorous and fearless comments on the
events of the times, genial gossip with the reader
on all current topics, and also devote abundant
space to those racy specimens of American wit and
humor, without which there can be no perfect ex
position of our national oharaoter Among those
who will contribute regularly to this department
may be mentioned the name of Charles F. Browne
(Artcmus Ward), from whom we shall present in
the March number, the firstof an entiroly new and
original scries of "Sketcheaof Western Life "
Tlje Continental will be liberal and progres
sive, without yielding to chimera and hopes be
yond the grasp of the age ; and it will endeavor
to reflect the feelings and interests of the Ameri
can people, aud to illustrato both their serious and
humorous peculiarities. In short, no pains will
be spared to make it the Representative Magazine
of the time.
TERMS : Three dollars per year, in advance
(postage paid by the Publishers ;) Two copies for
S5 ; Three copies for $6, (postage unpaid); Eleven
copies for S20, (postage unpaid). Single numbers

United States. The Knickerbocker Magazine and

Co.vtinestal, gratis . to any regiment in active
service, on application being made by its Colonel
c Chaplain : he will also receive subscriptions
from those desiring to furnish it to soldiers in the
ranks at half the regular price: bat in such eases
