- GOSSIP ' WITH Ott. FRIENDS.-A gossip
er has one, greiit adVhntage lit jotting down
his thoughts. He is untrammeled by time
or circumstance, can let thoughts run
free as air, and can prate of POMPEY or
?dui. just as it suits him. We, in addition
to this advantage Maim the female privilege
of chtmging our opinion as often as we please.
Doth not the world turn round once a Cay
are we not of and on and in the world? Of
a suety Then will we turn and change and
twist ad. lib.
We assume the responsibility of disclosing
what cannot always remain a secret—the
• fact that a board 21 . 21 k is , in process of build
ing on tho road leading from the north end
of our lown'to Shippensburg, (not the walk,
but the pike.) This same is a private enter
prise for the public benefit, and is very con
venient in wet weather, whici — we proved a
feW days k i ince.. Having occasioit to, walk
sortie distance out the road, we plodded 'along,
"our thoughts on gossip fairly bent,"-with
out-seeing the new walk. The mud and rain
were trying son one's boots and temper. To
mir surprise we were informed by a friend,
who needed but-a glance at our lower' extre
mities to appreciate our ignorance, that there
was a board walk: We tried it on our re
turn\ and are,prepared to report it a very
good\ institution—for Charribershurg ; and
with'alaudable desire that others May not
miss it as 'OM did, We here mention the FACT.
Philadelphia has her horse railroads, New
York her ; North and ~asst Rivek and Cham
.bersburg -her BOARD trALK. W©. must say
we would have preferred the' walk a little
wider, for now it is barely possible for two
small boys to walk abreast upoir it, but as
foi. two women; that is out of the question,
or even one woman and her husband. The
result will he the ) woman with her usual un
selfishness will take the _ thirty inches of
planning and leave all the rest of the road to
the men.
Should not the flourishing suburb,through
which this rind passes have a name! Loeal
politics have fastened upon two distinct names.
The Dethoerlits upon CLAP.KEI3VIF.E, and
the 'Rack Republicans LEwisro*N. We
confess t(ti a penchant for the latter name.
With regard to the first, we don't See why it
might not as'well be dubbed SnEPI I ERSBURO,
or U. tAnitsviLL*; but in
the I.. , tt'st we nii, that ALiXANDER
LEwl,, was the pioneer, We though youth
ful (?) can well remember when his modest
dwelling was the sole representative of the
. now do urishin - g settlement , The day has
`come when the children of darkness (a po
etic term for the negrow.) shall have their
just:dues. Stall the army and navy of these
titate , be all engaged in righting
them. and obi Inc, Lewis be deprived of Ms
right? Forbid it GP.F.ELY ! To one who
has -been al bent from C g, say ten
years. what a wonderful sight would be pre
sented in this locality ! A fine , large new
steam , saw-mill, fine new houses on' a new
street west of the railroad and on the Ship
pensburg pike, a huge straw-board mill as
long as a city block of houses near by; new
fences, new - stables and a school house. Soon
there will be a church, a hotel and two res
. taurants ; then anotherchurch and two more
hotels and some three or four additional res
taurants'; and then the ungratefpl foster
child, as did. the American • Colodes in '76,
will declare her independence, and will
through corrupt set up a separate
municipality, and will possibly elect for her
first Mayor a grandson of its. founder. By
that time you and we, gentle reaiter, may be
dead, but in• articulo mortis it will be pleas
ant for us to know of the future greatness of
Lrwterow.N. But in thus foreseeing the
greatness of the embryo city, there are some
sad feelings that force themselvesnpon us.
The oId•GATE Housg, with its once carefully
white-washed fence, its • homely walls all
covered with ,roses and honeysuckles, its well
kept yard a mass of flowers, the garden with
its dilapidated out-houses a miracle . of order,
the house itself internally the very perfec
tion 'of neatness and contentment—all this
must - disappear in the march of improVement
--44 appear fromi3ight; but will ever be dear
to memory, as long as life and
main, God bless the old Gate House !"
sax...we from our inmost heart and we know
thatmany' others will respond, in kindness
and synapatby,'" Amen!" - •
THE ?00p..--.ItAIOUId 11 ever:be forgotten
that, _'•the.Poor always ye have with you i"
but espeaially•ahould we be mindful of this
tauthz.when bleak Winter, with his inhos.
pitable snows, lays telentless siege alike to
tho'epulent and to y., Then, should those
who are blesssd with Comfort and plenty re ! ,
member that every hoarse sound of Winter's
lowest carries sorrow and suffering to the
'homeless, and we should spare no reasonable
effigti or sacrifices to make glad the many
children of want around us. '
Cherie is notra book of inspired-teaching
that does not remind us of our duty to the
Poor ; and in the' terrible 'judgment given
as the . finaboondonnation of thewicked, is
found the burning word.4.-- , ‘ I was hun
gerecland ye gave me no meat ;'I was naked
and Ye clothed rrte'noL' , ' It is taught as one
of the highest"of Christian duties; and none
will deny that it is one. of the 'holiest offices
of humanity. I Let us 'all be watchfUlthat in
this great duty we fail not.
The coming winter will be one of unusual
severity tothe..Poor. Labor will be scarce;
and,pery article of necessity unprecedently
high. -That ,there must - be an uncommon
slegren of stiffering unless there shall be
prompt and generous aid - rendered, eannot
be doubted. ; , .And yet liever before within
our — recollection, has a - 4 aneiourC i reat:Or so
larishlp best'civied his, gifts' upon our peep's.
4 1
Our barns and storehousesteem' with plenty;'
the producers are eommandirtg , extravagant
prices for everything ; and t r hosti prices, , t. 6
basis of the prosperity of ihe wealthy, art
the harbingers of sorrow to the Poor. Fuel
is now sold at rates beyon ' the power of
hundreds in our midst to each, and every
art - idle of food is correspondingly costly ?
while the enfeebled, the sickly, the suffering,
as a rule, are unable to secure anything like
a commensurate increase of compensation for
their fitful labor.
- Another class is added to the list of those
who justly claim benevolent aid. These are
scores of families in Ohamberiburg,- ant:
more or less in every district in the county,
whose head and sole reliance is either defend
ing our Flag in the field, - languishing in tin
hospital, or mourned by bereaVed loved ones
- amongst our martyred dead. , For these, the
legacies of fallen patriots to a Nation's grati
tude, there should be nq needless sorrow ad •
fled to their already stricken 'homes, and es
pecially should want be astranger to their
circles. It would be a blistering stain upon
any community, blessed with our; boundless
wealth, to allow. those who halve been widow
ed and orphaned to defend our persons, out
property and our Nationality, to feel the
cruel pangs of poverty in onr ' midst. We
may see them in our daily walks—
" Bow,'d and bent,
Wax grey and ghastly. witherin g ere their time."
And th y deserve the care and 'kindness ol
every lover of humanity afri of our coun
try. Many. wives and mothers are deprived
of their scanty support from the army by
delay in payments and in. transmission, and
only too many in bereavrnent and want
mourn the sad sacrifices of war. -
No man's abimdance is i l s own. It is the
fruits of the beneficence_ of Him who tem ,
,bets the winds and saves the bruised reed
unbroken, and he who hears not the appeal
of the stricken and suffering, is inhuman
alike to hirriself and his fellows, and invites
the just judgments of Heaven. '
This appeal is to all who are blessed with
plenty. Those to whom - Much is given, let
much be required, and let not the mite be
withheld, for however humble the offering. ,
it will relieve some want and mingle some
happiness with affliction: '
We notice in Bedford county that the far
mers in the vicinity of theit town have agreed
to bring their contributions of wood, flour,
meal, meat, &c., to theinior on the day be
fore Christmai. Why - Will not our people
do likewise? Who will - I start in this good
work ? -, ~..
Waynesboro - Record displays a discredittao
degree of ill temper because its editor has
been notified that the . .lIRPOSITORY claimed
to be the newspaper withi the largest circu
lation in the county. The proprietors of this
journal had nothing whatever to dd. with the
passage of the existing law;requiring all le
gal notices to be advertised the f*a papers
lumina the widest circulation in the county:
but'it is the law here, ai it is in most • coun
ties of the State, and we, simply proposed to
establish legally that the REPOSITOXY has
the largest circulation.
s rln order to do this.
it was due to all other; publishers to know
that we made the claim rind,accordingly the
publishers of the'Spirtt,l the the Rec.
ord-aud - tite Journal were asked by rule to
object to the claim if they . had good ground
for doing so.
This simple rule the Record construes into
a selfish effort of the REPOSITORY to deprive
it of advertising, although the sanie issue
contains a large advo:tisement sent by the
publishers of this Parier, at their own sugges
tion. In, this unkine assumption the Rec
ord is most grievously ? mistaken. The RE
POSITORY does not seek to deprive, any co
temporary of its legitimate patronage. When'
it establishes the fact legally that it has the,
largest circulation, it does not in any degree
deprive any other jouinal 'of advertising.—
Lega'l notices formerly could be published in
one or more papers, ds in the judgment of
parties was best. ikojw they must be pub,
lished in the two having the widest eireula
tion, arid in any other j s dictated by the 'oat
tion of the business to be benefited 'thereby.
'Every legal notice .wising from Estates in
Washington township should be published in
the ReCord ; so of the" papers in Greencastle
ant iercersblirg; and we have never sought
to interfere with then,, and never shall.
If the Record claims:to have a larger cir
culation than the REPOSITORY, its editor
should attend at next Court and make good
its claim ; if it does not, the . rule needs no
further attention, and its advertising will
neither be itimeasedi or diminished thereby.
Wp submit however that it should not do am
injustice to impute selfishness-to us, Or ale
sire to enlarge our business at the cost of the
Record, when its !own advertising columns
are living witnesses against its assumption.
Will the Record recall its harsh and ill-con
sidered language ? 1
311 E SANITABY.ICoIdbfIeaTOII.—We have
been handed an article from the Sanitary
Commission Buil4in, appealing to the -14a
dies of the North to incr ease
. their exertions
to meet the want of soldiers in the hoipi
tals, suffering prisoners, &c. The Commis
sion say that their jmachinery is now 'in ad
mirable order—their central reservoirs per
fectly adapted is their • purpose; and, they
assert with good reason that they can best
use the contributions of the generous, and
best guard against, imposition, as they have
carefully covered the whole ground. • They
know the necessities of soldiers and prison
ers, and the safest °baronets of reaching them.
They urge that with the opening winter, ev
ery village Sewing Circle, Soldier's Relief
Society; Church or Dorcas-Association, i3hould
set about a systematic contribution of sup
plies to the Central Associations at Boston,
New York, Philtidelphia, Cincinnati, Cleve
land,' Chicago and Louisville. They very
justly observe that if there is a jealous and
ering of these resources, a littleber and a
„7- h e .fraultliwiltpositorp, iDttnnber 16, 1863.
little there, the waste and abuse will be fear
ful. The sanitary Commission Bulletin is
sent to ;every association contributing sup
plies; to such 'Clergymen and 'others who
wish iVto guide their efforts, and its columns
contain all necessary inforMation relative to
bounties, furloughs, pensions, discharges, and
also give the best method of communicating
with prisoners in different sections. The
headquarters of the Sanitary Commission at
Philadelphia is 1307 Chehnut Street.
Caleb Cope is Treasurer.
Inns-mum—Our readers will remember
the incident of a dead and unrecognized'
Union soldier found on the Gettysburg bat
tle-field with a photograph of three children
by his side. Miss Shrivel, a daughter of the
Post Master at Graeffenburg Springs, was
:he first ono to observe the body, lying with
the hands folded on his breast, and the pho
tograph just fallen from his grasp. She took
the picture home, and her father had the
body interred and the grave marked; and
publicity was given to the incident with the
hope of g•ving the. family information of the
and fate of the father. Photograph copies of
the children were taken from the original
md'offered for gale in the cities. '
A notice of the dear Land unknown soldier
with a photograph of the childi'en reached
,he eye of a soldier's wife in Cuttarargus
:ounty, New York She had sent her hus
band such a picture and had not:heard from
him since the sanguinary struggle of Get
tysburg. I , \ ith - trembling anxiety she at
once sent•for a , eopy of the photograph, and
it contained the likeness of her own children
and told the painful story at she Was wi
lowed and her children orphaned by the
murderous hand of Treaon. The name of
the! soldier was Sergeant A. Hummiston,
184th N. Y. Volunteerk
The widowed mother ikleft without means
to support or educate her \children, and, it is
proposed to sell photographs of the children
md apply the profits to the: benefit of tht;
They can be had at Shryocys, and
we trust that they will have a liberal sale in
this community.

Territory, comes to us in mourning for the
loath of Gen. James Allen. its chief Editor.
lie was born in Chambersburg in the year
1800, but emigrated to Ohio 'when quite
young. and became'one of the Editors of the
Columbus Journal. He subsequently went
to Texas and participated in the war for the
independence of that State serving, under
Gen.' Sum Houston, and subsequently served
under-Scott in the Mexican war. He next
followed the-stream of adventurers to Cali
fornia. He was'connectedwith - the Sacra,
mento Tribune, the Marysville-- Herald and
the Marysville News.-in that, State, and was
chosen State Printer on the American ticket
in 1855. Within a few years he located in
Nevada Territory, where he founded the
Nevada Transcript, - and at the time of his
".,,death he was the principal Editor of ,the
Washoe - Times. He was justly called The
Nestor of the Pacific Presi. He leaves a
c' wife San Juan, California:, and a sonrand
zwo daughters.
ACQUITTED.—Capt. Clarence Clayton, an
employee in the Quarter Master's Depart
ment here, has been tried by a Court Mar
dal, of which Gen. 0. S. Ferry was Presi
dent, on the charge of " unlawfully selling
and disposing of property belonging to the
United States" on various specifications, and
I found not guilty - on every one involving .
criminality. He was therefore_ honorably
acquitted by the Court, and the proceedings
and findings have been approved by Major.
Gen. Couch. ; Capt. Clayton was ever cour
teous and - prompt in the discharge of his du
' ties, and we are gratified that a patient and
impartial investigation of, his case has re
sulted in his acquital on the merit•, and not
:! upon any technisal defence. John Stewart,
! Esq.,, conducted the trial on part•o£ the goy
; •rnment; and Geo. W. Broiler and F. M.
Kimmell, Esqs., were counsel for,the Defen
Fitom-Rtcumora.—A letter was received
'rom J. Porter Brown by his sister last week,
lated Castle Thunder, Richmond, Noiretn
.)er 24th. In it be says—" Our names have
.ust been called to go to Salisbury, N. C.
I have had a letter from Culbertson. They
'are all well and getting along very well. If
tnytbing comes here for me, it will be for
warded.. Keep' in good spirits -- ; every day
brings it one day nearer to my release." A
postscript to`the- same letter states that they
are to start for Salisbury ! at 2 P. M. • - on
'that day. Our citizen prisimers are all now
in North Carolina, and all the' advices re
cowed from them represent the condition of
prisoners - in Salisbury as much more corn
fortablo than in Richmond.,
BY reference to our advertising coluthns,
it will be seen that the Directors of the Poor
of Franklin county have passed a resolution
not to pay any physicians' or other bills con
tracted with the poor of the county, unless
said poor are in law paupers. It seemri
that some physidians, undertakers and oth
ers, upon orders•from Justiaoi of the Peace,
frequently presented bills to the Directors
which had no other merit than the fact that
the persons for whom the aorvice was ren
dered were unable to foot the bill. We en-.
dorse the action of the Directors, believing
.they have done right in the premises. -
