Correction. We have been requested
to state, that iu the Commissioners ".Notice
to Collectors," aa heretofore published, an
omission occurred. The corrected notice
will be found under our head of ew Ad-
TertLsemen tstoja-v-
A Desertkr Caught. We clip the fol
lowing from the Elk County Adcocate:
'Deputy Mar.sh.ill, A. II. Head, left on
the Eastern train to-day for 1 1 arri.-burp. hav
ing in ehar.ee one Harry Fisher, arrested as a
-deserter from the regular service v It ap
pears on investigation, that Fisher is rather
a slippery chap his own statement is rather
unfavorable. The last charge is for deser
tion f oni Waterford camp, after leinr re
ceived as a substitute for Sheriff Perks of
Important Change. We learn that
Provost Marshall Campbell is about to re
move his headquarters to Ridgway, E!k
'otint. It is expected that the Board of
Enrollment will be fully established there a-Jn-ut
the 15th of December. Had the rail
road and telegraph been .in operation to
KiJgway, it would have been the place se
lected at first. It will be more central and
convenient for all parts of the district.
Good Advice. A hfge number of pack
ages intended for the army arrived at Wash
ington postofiice with the wrappers destroy
ed, or the address so mutilated that they
cannot be forwarded, and are therefore ne
cessarily sent to the Dead Letter Office. It
is officially suggested that persons sending
packages write on a card the full address,
and fasten securely to the contents of the
will package inside the wrapper, and this
will secure prompt delivery.
Ocr Street Crossings. It is a burning
disgrace to our town that in crossiiur the
street pedestrians are com polled to wade an
kle deep in fund. It is next to impossible
fur ladies to get across at all. The citizens
f-hould take the matter in hand, and if the
Borough authorities do not attend to it,
have them indicted for a nuisance. If not
attended to t once, it will toon be too late
this season, and we will be compelled to
wade in the mud all winter, save when it
happens to liejrojen.
The On. Well. The oil-well is progres
sing favorably. It is now down about thirty
feet. Thoy bore night and day, and average
about fix feet in twenty-four hours. The
gentleman in charge, who is from the Oil
region, thinks the indications are good. We
confess, our own faith in the discovery of oil
in this locality, is rather of ttc weakest.
But the luring of the well will, at all events,
let us kuow what i.- under our feet. As we
have a natural salt-luk at the river Ik re,
palt water will no doubt be found ih plenty.
Indeed, a salt well was bored a cumber of
years ago by Dr. Hoyt, some ten miles tip
the river, which produced salt water in
large quantity.
How to Prevent Wet Feet. A wri
ter in the Mechanics' Magazine, who says
he has had three pair ef boots last him six
years, and thmks he will wot require any
more for six years to come, tells how he treats
them. I put a pound of each of tallow and
rosin in a pot on the fire; when melted and
mixed, apply it Lot to the boot with a pain
ter'? brush until neither tkesole nor the up
per will soak any more. If it is desireable
that the boots should- immediately take a
polish, dissolve an ounce of wax in a tea
spoon full of turpentine and lamr black. A
dfty or two after the boots have been treated
with the rosin and tallow, rub over them this
wax ami turpentine, but not before the fire.
Thus the exterior will have a. coat of wax a
loneand shine like a miror. Tllw and
grease become raeid and r.t the slitt ing or
leather, but the rosin gives it an antiseptic
quality which preserves te whole.
Candy as a Dessert. Pure sugar and
candies, says ILilV Jwrwil ur Fi'altJi, do
Ji it injure the teeth, except indirectly by
their injudicious use, in exeitiiig acidity of
sT-imach, or dyspepsia", as will any other kind
ff.Mt-1, or drink, or beverege, if extrava
gantly ucd. At seasons of the year when
fruit and berries may not be ripe, fresh and
RriVet, as deserts pure sugars and candies
iiny l; ued as such in thier stead, to .great
a-kantage, because they are healthful, be
in? warming, nutricious, and agreeable;
"'m-e, as a table article they are very valua
'''. while almost universal love of them
liiws that they were intended to be eaten.
It' a child is not allowed to eat anything con
taining sugar, it will sicken ami die in a
vtry short time. Children need the carbon
tiie fuel contained insugar tokeep them
wanii ; without it they would -perish from
:'M ; hence the love of such things is an in-v,-!ix
t, implanted by the kind and wise Ma-
kr of us all, for the child's preservatiou.
There are a parcel of stupid creatures in the
'"rid. whose stock in trade of brains and
'"cie amounts to this, that "what is good is
"'"h.-althy" It is not advised that children
JoulJ be allowed to eat sugar and candy
h never they want it ; but that as a dessert,
after each regular meal, the use of pure
rpar and candies would benefit and not
IVj unto others, as you would that others

If our citizens do not take some interest
in the extension of the Tyrone and Clear
field Railroad, they may wake Dp some fine
j morning and find themselves left in the
lurch, by the proposed extension west from
Osceola. We are informed that eertaiu in
fluences are at work to extend the road in
such a way that Clearfield will be left about
ten miles to the North.
The proposed change of the route of the
Pennsylvania Railroad, so as to avoid the
Summit Tunnel, i.s also worthy of our im
mediate attention. If Tyrone is made the
point at which this change of route will be
commenced, the road will probably run
through the Southern part of this county.
In that event it would require but little ef
fort to secure the erection of a road, to con
nect with the Sunbury and Erie, at the
mouth of the Sinnemahoning. It would
complete a road from Erie to Philadelphia
seventy-five miles shorter, than by the route
now in use. Our business men and proper
ty holders should give this inatter-their im
mediate attention. It is of the utmost im
portance to the prosperity of ur county.
In accordance with the Presidential and
Gubernatorial proclamations, Thursday last
was generally observed in this community as
a dayof thanksgiving. Most of our people
seemed to enter inio the spirit of the appointment,-
and the observance was more
general than it has been on former occasions
of the same kind.
i crvice was held here, in the Presbyte
rian church. The congregation was large
ami attentive. The ceremonies, conducted
by the liev. W. E. Ijams, were singularly
appropriate and impressive. The sermon
was from the PJth verse of the VI chapter
of Revelations :
lilessing and glory, and wisdom, and thanks
giving, nnd honor, and power, and might, be un
to our God tor ever and ever."
We have seldom listened to a. more chaste,
eloquent, and beautiful discourse. Mr. ijams
is a gifted writer, and one of the finest elo-
i cut'.oHits we have ever heard. 11 is voice.
evidently under the most perfect control, is
melody itself. His argument is both clear
and profound, yet garnished with the most
beautiful imagery. The sermon was replete
with noble sentiments and devout thanks
givings, while it glowed with the truest
Christian patriotism. We regret to say,
that this eloquent preacher has accepted a
call from Danville Pa., and left for that
place ou yesterday.
In Curw ensville services were held in the
Methudist church, and were conducted by
the liev. L. M. Gardner. The sermon was
from the last verse of the XXXIII chap
ter of Deuteronomy:
"Who is lite onto thee, O people saved by the
Lord, the shield of thy help, and who is the sword
of thy excellency I nnd thy enemies shall be found
liars unto rhce; and th-oa shall tread upon their
high places."
It i.s spoken of as one of Mr. Gardner's
best efforts. The congregation went home
delighted. He is, indeed, one of the most
eloque nt preachers in the Kast Baltimore
Conference. Our Methodist friends were
exceedumly fortunate iu securing hi' servi
ces, and when the time for his departure ar
rives (the end of his second year here is ap
proaching) not only the members of his
church, but a large portion of this commu
nity will part from him with sincere regret.
Letter from Philipsburg, Pa.
PuiLipsBCRO, Pa., Nov. 28th, 1804.
Dear -lor iinal: We have had a taste
of winter during the past week, but for the
la.-t few day. the weather has been moder
ate, and the circulating population are mov
ing to and 1V', as usual.
The meivliHiits, mechanics .and business
portion oi our community, generally, have
at Jong ht.-t resolved to pay a proper respect
to the days set apart by the National and
State authorities for giving thanks to the
Great Giver of all good things, and prayer
for His infinite mercy. Thursday last as
was very generally observed by our citizens.
The stores and work-shops, with only one or
two exceptions, wore closed, and our town
presented very much of a Sunday appear
ance. Everybody seemed to be enjoying
themlves to their full bent, and more es
pecially in the afternoon, arising from the
iiwt. no doubt, that each and every one had
something extra for dinner. 'J his is as it
should le and I am glad to chronicle the
creditable manner in which .the business
population or our town observed thanksgiv
ing day November 2-lth, 1864,
A very marked change is visible in the
conversation anr conduct of our political op
ponents since the 8th instant. Where wo,
previous to that date, heard loud talk of a
strong traitorous, treasonable tendency, all
is now quiet as the grave not a vord es
caping the lips of those who were the most
violent opponents of the Administration,
ynd well they may be silent, txor fellows,
they must fear and tremble, when they take
into consideration the large majority that is
against them.
Another invoice of tickets to Lincoln's
Ball, came to town a few days since. The
favored ones immediately in the town and
vicinitv were Jacob M. Keplar, Wm. Bnr
ris. Efias Hale, L. Stinerook. and Wm. M'
Clellan. The number drafted was ten. The
quota is now filled within five, and this last
draft will very probably fill it entirely.
The large number of persons clad in Un
cle Sam's regalia, seen in our streets for the
last twenty days, suddenly disappeared dur
ing the week, and betook themselves to
more congenial quarters. A great many of
the boys were home on furlough. They
were all from the military hospitals. Some
of them looked well.and thought they would
soon be fit to join their regiments-. Others
we-e yet afilicted more or less, and it will be
some time before they are able to go to the
field. let thev all seemed cheerful, and
were "gay and happy" during their visit.
May the boon of health soon be theirs, and
may thev long live to enjoy the liberties they
have periled their lives to maintain, is the
fervent wit-h of Lehoi.
