grinningnt me as I returned each - time crest

His face, when Mr. B. looked at
,him, was
the very picture of solemn studiousness; and
the - very- epitomC of roguery at alt other
timer; He used to bore holes through the
benches, and had an ingenious apparatus
formes or'a crooked pin and a string, by
_which, at any distance along the bench, all
ho had to do was to pull the string, and up
would go the pin into that part of the unfor
tunate boy's body where the learning was,
in our school, supposed to be pituated, " reno
rare do/orcliz.." The poor boy would utter a
yell, and shake his fist; at the studious Ed.,
and would of course be called up by Mr. B.
to receive a ferruling. I was as fond of ma

forming my questions in arithmetic) :and as
Mr. B. was examining the right side of my

me, saw my hallcyon.cords; car, aeronaut and
all,' and most denlrely , said :- Mr. B. ain't
that a nice -balloon that has on this

Mr. B:s attention to it, and procured for me
a trimming. I shall never forget the time I
asked permission to go down with Ed. an
'hour before afternoon dismisal, fur the pur
pose of helping him "bring come the cow."

I go behind—you see, sir, the cow is so e6yi

A philosaphictil friend of ours was COll

He has not been consulted since.
The money market was very unsettled one
day last. week, owing, to the issue of search
warrants , for looking throUgh„ some houses
inhabited by "Arc we not men and brOilers?"
It seems that a couple of boys - were discov
ered ,with their handQn Shryock's money
drawer, were pursued and captured in a
public building belonging to the Court House,
where in , fancied security they were-sharing
tlr.dr ill-gotton booty. They were immedi
ately taken before Justice Davison, and after
hearing were solemnly marched off to jail-,
accompanied by the Borough Constable and
1111 • admixing crowd of little boys. Some
houses were then searched, in which were
found several suits of new clothes, about SO
iri money,-and so forth. Two colored-indi
- riduels were overheard conversing- on the
probable punishment of the young offenders.
One of them remarked, Five yorais-a long
- tame," 4.0 h," says the other, triiimphantly,
- " Why just look at my Uncle. Look how
long lie was in jail—that's nothing." Let's
have the whipping post back, by all means !
This is the same party, doubtless, that has
Wien carrying off gold pens, paper and sun
dry odds and ends out of the lawyers' offices.
' What an awful position these four boys are
if,. (for alas, two more were added to the
blacklist.) What chance for mercy, having.

A GALLgT SOLDIER.--On Thursday last
&week, Ist L dohn S. Hatch, second in
- ceminand of the Invalid . Company recently
this place, received a commission as Cap
tain. It was an agreeable surprise from the
fact that ho had never solicited it, nor is he
aware of any parties interesting themselves
for him.. Capt. Hatch has displayed quali
ties truly deserving of credit, .and though
young in years, has passed through scenes of
peril and strife sufriciept to shake the firm
ness of the bravest of veterans. He enlisted
as a private in the First Michigan Infantry'
to July, 1861, at Ann Arbor, and passing
through all the grades of a non-commission-
ed officers, was commissioned 2nd Lienti in
May, 1862. 'He Was With McClellan throfigh
the4nlire Peninsi3la "canipaign", and for
lent service at Gainei' Hill, where he bad
command of, the company; he was pronioted,
tiilst Lieutenant. In the memorable fights
of, Bull Run, August 20th an - d - 36,th, 1862,
he active participant, and when the
last terrible effort was made to carry, j the
enemy's batteries by a charge 'of Infantry;
on the evening of the_3oth, he Was wounded
five times—first his left hand - Was torn' to
pieces by a musket shot; it was bandaged on
the field, and in ten Minutes he was again at
the head of his command.' He then received
a musket ball in his 'right hip,land
minutes after was struck by a musket ball in
the left breast, which passed nut through his
shoulder blade. He still conatted with his
command, and it was only when - the frag
ments of a shell, which had burst alniost' in
his face, and tore the flesh from_ 'his right arm
below the elbow and terribly mangling his
already shattered left arm;did he fall to the
ground fromrexhaustien and loss of blood.
He was conveyed to Alexandria and suffered
amputation of the left arm near the elbow.
In January he rejoined his regiment, but
his wounds breaking out afresh- - he , was
again sent to the hospital. * Obtaining thirty
days leave of abseneehe visited his home in
Michigan and while there received a comis
sion as Captain. He again rejoined his com
mand in' March and - was with it in all the
subsequent movements of the army of the
Potomac and was among the gallant spirits
nt Cliancelorville and Gettysburg. Such a
record of bravery and endurance is seldom
presented. While in Washington under:
Medical treatment he vos appointed Ist Lient. e ;
in the Invalid Corps, yielding reluetant,
to a separation from his old comrades. 110
came to this place temporarily iii command
of the Invalid Conipany and as stated has
received a commission as a Captain. He;is
subject to assigning orders,frorn the Provost
Marshal General. •
in the
record we have made has proved himself one
of the bravest of soldiers, but we must add
that he h as . exhibited qualities since sojourning
aniongns, not only indicating the gallant
soldier but the true gentleman and the most
genial of companions.
B. Ward has opened a new recruiting station
in the office formerly •ccupied by snively
Strickler, Esq., on East Market street. Cap
tain Ward is the popular and gallant,co'
mender of Company "D," llth Pen - nsyl2
vania Cavalry, now near Suffolk, Virginia,
and-whieh 'is considered one of the best Regi-
Meats 'in the service. The Captain's com
pany is composed of young:rn.en almost ex
clusively from this town and neighborhood,
and the• flue, gentlemanly appearance :of * a
number recently home on- - furlough bespoke
the 'excellent- discipline - prevailing among
them. TO those desiring to enter the Cavalry
service no better opportunity could be offered
than: to enlist with Captain Ward. Veter
ans who have seen nine menths or more ser
vice, receive aßounty of $402 from the United
States and . sloo from.the Borough' of dam
beriburg All others receive $402, which
includes the Borough Bounty.

other eminent authorities.: In the Lecture
Mr. W. will exhibit speclimens of the 'orien

THE Icx HARVEST.—The present "cold
snap" has been producing ice in abundance,
and the ice houses are being rapidly- filled.
We notice Mr. John Reasner filling a num
ber of houses with a splendid article, from the
ponds oh his premises near town. Ice }His
becoMe an indispensable article, for Summer
use, and as the demand is constantly increas
ing the cr(ip harvested the present season
will. be unusually large.
The extensive distillery of Messrs. Brough
and Harchelrode on the Coneococheogue
Creek near town was totally destroyed by fire
on Monday last. It was a new concern and
almost completed for •an extensive business.
The' fire originated by accident and the loss
will be about $7OOO.
FRIDAY next, the Bth instant; is the 49th
anniversary of the Battle of. New Orleans.
In former years it was appropriately observ
