EXCITING WA , G NEWS.—The excitement in
town during the last week was more intense
if possible 'than the week before. , Business
was practically suspended. ' Merchants would
wander from their stores with anxious, nervous
steps to see if any fresh news could be gathered;
and every rumor was greedily read and nom.
mented On bygroupson the streets and corners.
Mechanics left their shops,-and gathered about
the bulletin boards, as if everything must be
suspended until the Army of the Potomac had
achieved a decisive victory. Ladies would pass
by time and again tb catch an ipun of hopeful
intelligence; and,all classes seethed totally ab
sorbed in the great issue being fought out through
the bloody -windings of the Wilderness.
On Wednesday fragmentary dispatches gave
information of- a terrible battle having been
fought the day before near Spottsylvania; and
the excitement of the four or five days previous
*as intensified. Every ruiner was carefully
treasured by the obliging operator of the Atlan-
tic and Ohio Line, W. Blair Gjlmore, Esq.,
kind the delay in procuring official information
'was most painful to the many anxious heartg
who seemed to subordinate everything to the
success of our common cause. The fact that
Orant's heroic army had advanced over the
sanguinary fields of the week before, and was
Still undaunted and intact, and the modest but
4gaificant asi3uracee of its noble commander
that he proposed "/o
„fight it out on this line, if
it takes all summer," gave hope to loyal men ;
but they knew the pow or and desperation of the
foe, and they were appalled at the terrible sa
&Mee our early success.lad cost us. It was
natural tbeiefore that the gravest apprehensions
mingled with their zonfidence in our sacred
cause. But at last came official information
that the great conflict of Tuesday was another
victory, although still indecisive. , Thousands
more of our brave defenders had fallen, willing
sacrifices upon the altar of the Republic, but
Treason had reeled baCkin dismay—even its
terrible desperation had been met with invinci-
ble valor, and again Hope dawned brightly upon
• the Country's cause. But still Treason was
unyielding, and dts soldiers of crime confronted
1 , the loyal hosts behind frowning cannon and
bristling bayonets, and fresh sacrifices were
'still demanded to preserve our Nationality. •
Thursday's news but confirmed the desperate
• and deadly' character of Tuesday's conflict; but
' every authentic report gave increased confidence
to the anxious people who congregated about
the bulletins. Accounts of Wednesday's strug
gle began to coin7 o in;,but it was evidently but
tt fable engagement compared with the fearful
harvest of death gathered on. Tuesday and Fri
day previous. But it showed that the resisting
power of the rebel army was still unbroken, and
that it was prepared to contest Grant's advance
as long as it could marshal its forces and sup
ply them with the missiles of deatruction. Our
people continued to cluster - on the streets and
mingled anxiety and hopewere depicted on every
loyal, face: - Thursday night passed.without de
cisive news, but all reports give every assurance
of the ultimate success of Grant. His army
was well handled against the most skilful of the
rebel commanders, in his own country, and de
fending his own capital, tad its spirit was im
proved, while that of the foe was measurably
broken by repeated fannies to force our lines.
Friday morning, first gave desultory rumors ofa
desperate strulggle the day before; and at last
the people were electrified with the. official re
port that Gen. Han sock had captured a large
iiiqhber of prisoners sud some thirty guns. The
long agony of suspense was broken, and with
out waiting to analyze results, the people shout
ed for joy. Men congratulated each other on
the street, and rejoicing was earnest indeed as
the anxious hearts were relieved of fearful ap
prehensions. The army bad achieved a victory
—its trophies .were substantial, and the ex
hausted fde was yielding gradually but surely
before the advancing columns of Grant and
, Meade. Shout :upon shout went pp from the
crowd upon the streets, and many were the
grateful inspirations sent, up to the Great Ruler
fo'r His merciful deliverance. The vast crowd
was hourly augmented, and it swayed to and fro
as report after report, often of the most extra-
vagant nature, dropped from the wires. At
last its jubilant shouts culminated as the Inland 1
line announced the surrender of Lee with 40,-
000 men. In vain did a few declare it impos
sible to compel Lee'jt surrender in an open
field ;—the crowd surged Irom the prudent
caution to the bulletin board, and read that the
report was confirmed. In a. few moments the
bells were ringing out - the joy ,f the excited
people, and even when the surrender was offi
cially contradicted, the triumph of Hancock and
fife evident general victory 'of Grant, was left
t4eM, and they closed the day rejoicing. Night
brought Gen. Grant's official despatches an
nouncing a substaotiasuccesi, his captures, and
closing with the assurance that his splendid
array had passed its terrible ordeals of death
with its 'organization intact, and its spirifin
domitable. Saturday fully confirmed the deci
sive character of Thursday's victors, and the
great net-work of Gen. Grant's sublime plans
bees.n to be developed. Dalton was taken by
Sherman ; Petersburg waslisblated from Rich
mend by Gun. BUtler ; Averill and Crooks had
sefered the, great artery of treason from Rich
mfiod le Tennessee; Sheridan was in Lee's
rear ; had cut his line of supplies and was be
_tikeen the rebel army and its capital with 42,-
000 cavalry. Sigel was moving up the Valley
to strike the last remaining rebel line. On
every hand the success of the Union armywas
positive, and the retributive stroke of justice
was falling heavily upon the now doomed. trai
tors. On Sunday congregations gathered to
render grateful. homage to Alm)ghty God for
our victories, and no disloyal or doubtful lips
proclaiured'llis greatness and goodness in our
'Sanctuaries. With one' accordthey - bore- to Ms

TOWN COWS-A NUISANCE TO In ABATED.
—Sohn thirty town cows are regularly turned
loose by their owners every morning to forage
upon their tigthbors, and they have become an
,intolerable nuisance to all the citizens residing
immediately around the town. It would seem
that the owners of these cows deliberately cal
culate upon feeding them at the'expense of the
public, as they are. turned out as ravenous4ts .
wolves andlhey defy the best fences or gates:
in their efforts to procure food. The citizens
living in the vicinity of the town lose ever - )
yearin the . aggregate more than all these cows
are worth, and the
_owners must be sensible of
the fact that they are wantonly periling the
property of their neighbors, and often allowing
the most serious depredations to be committed
upon fields. gardens, &e. -We' have tried in
vain to make fences to keep these cows out of
fields, and have done everything in our Power
to persuade owners to cease plundering their
neighbors in this way, and we shall neither no
tify nor suggest any farther. The borough or.
dinance on the subject says :
anv borses, cattle, sbeep, swine, geese. or °tiler
animals be found running at largo in said square, or,
in an y of said streets, lanes or alleys, pavements, side
or footways, it shall be the duty of the High Constable
to seize ancise/t the same 611 public outcry, and pop
over to the Treasurer of said borough the proceeds.'
- The Burgess and Council have been notified
to enforce the law, and unless town cows are
cared properly for by their owners and kept
from plundering the public, they will be sold by
the borough authorities to owners who will take
care of them. The owners will be wise, there
fore, who at once take their cattle off the
streets and 'stop them from committing depre
dations upon the public.
