iGossiP W ITII OUR Fr ENDs.—Hoiv quiet
and how beautiful the country looks to one who
has been Pea- for a time in a Idege city.—
There is 10 spring in the city. It is true
. a 'few trees, shrubs, flowers and blades
of grass' give some little token of it; but the
-het dusty streets, close atmos
phere mid horrible smells are a surer index.
Broadway ,will do in winter, with the gay
dresses of the ladies, the gaudily painted omni
busses and the flaming shop windows; but in
the spring give us "rocks, waters, woods," fields
of grain and clover, fruit trees in blossom,
flower gardens in full bloom, and road side
By the bye, what has become of the fulfil
ment of, the prophecy about the grass growing
in Broadway %% hen The South would secede.
-Our Southern brethern - have seceded, and the
grass g tows not yet in Broadway. Alas for the
prophets, in their Own country 1
The ten cent Omnibujjtre was, ma we ex
pected; a failure. The great Unwashed as well
as the washed refused to pay the Villainous
_price'; and the unwonted sight of empty stages
was seen on Broadway. A great moral victory
was won by the sovereign people, and' six cents
is once more the charge per half hour for the
privilege of being squeezed, trampled on, and
mothered in concert with from twelve to eigh
teen of Vteir misguided fellow beings. One
meets with strange adventures sometimes in
these van — nosingone's pocket-book, fur in
stance, is quite exciting; so is the occasional
'striking of hobs and falling of horses. _ A small
man is eictisable for a feeling of desperation
when engulphed in the crinoline of a lady on
each side. - To have a. fat lady on the
~ one
hand and an angular one on the other is
still more distres‘sing, the meeting of the two
extremes through his body is, to say the least;
unpleasant, worse than . to have a barbed arrow
piercing the left and a mustard plaster on the
right shoulder, the faint, roast beef, greasy,
istty feel balanced by the vulture-beak sen
sation. But when a fellow gets sandwiched
between two plump, pretty lassies, the one
with blue eyes. and golden hair, the other
-with briiwn eyes and chestnut locks, then,'
then • comes the tug of war. - Every` jolt of
the stage sways him to and fro like a spoon
between two pyramids of blanc mange.—
If 'yon happen to be old or irascible or corned,
take care of your toes ; if amiable, don't let an
4:11d- lady of two hundred (pounds of course) sit
on your lap. If your clothes. are new, don't
Mike on your knee a' juvenile - witha fresh gin
gbiecake in his hand ; if yout: habilaments are
iturbby, don't mind an occasional look of scorn
from those who are well dressed ; . if - yon want
fun, watch a lady getting into the door, partic
ularly if she has three or four bundles and an
umbrella in her arms ; and - if you wish your
hair to - stand on end, see an Englishmin try, on
pretext of stopping the stage, to Pull the driver's
leg ind body through the little round six inch
hole in front. At - times the drivers will swear,
give the wrong change, or forget it altogether.
Should you drop your change, you must never
attempt to hunt for it, for it is very trying to
stoop down and hunt through some thirty gai
ters and hoots for a few five and ten cent notes.
Bearyour loss like a man, and be more care
ful next time. Never argue with a Jchu,
particularly if he's from a well known island
west of Great Britain. ,Pray without ceasing,
keep year temper, wear strong, simple, neat,
plain attire, pay the exact fare, look at and
talk to nobody, keep your left hand on your
pocket bOok, pay uo attention to insults or
'blandishments, be sure you know where -you
intend to alight, don't go 'to sleep, be pleased
or tiightened at nothing, attempt not to stop a
*sing stage with your elbow or head, never
make your exit face foremost or beforeyou have
come to it halt,' avoid the mud, look well to -it
that the stages in your rear don't pass over your
prostrate body. tuce for the side walk incenti-
neatly—treasure up all these premutiohs in
yottriiii;art, and in due course of time, after lo:a
of 'till* and treasure, and a .leg, perhaps, you
will be able to travel on Broadway with ease to
yourself and comfort to others. Little thought
we to spend so much time on this subject, but
the truth is, we have been passing such nn
amount of I timelftely in_ omnibuses, that we
/lave been run away with—the theme opens
np such a field for thought, for reflection, for
philosophizin,g. We often think of what a pimis
old friend of ours once said as le picked him-
self up out of an upturned stage—" I'd rather
take -Fharoah's clam& in the Red Sea; any time,
than ride the length of Broadway in au omni
bus." Not too strong a rennet*, but slightly
We wish we could say- something about the
Fair, our Fair, the Fair to be held in Chant
bersburg the 13th of June next, for the bene
of the Christian Commission, that would giie
new energy to the, energetic and stir up the
lukewarm: notibthws many .may think our
Fair small in comparison with those held at Chi
cago, Brooklyn, New York, etc.; but the-fact is,
it Will not be small for Chambemburg. There
is an influence and a heartiness at work that
will cause our Fair to compare favorably, for
our means, 'with those of much greater:preten=
I ..sionsl We know full well what our town has
already done for the good eatu3e, that our houses
have ever been open to the Union soldier, that
we have already given more than our share,
that 'we have nursed the sick and fed the hun-
gry, that we have been robbed, by the enemy
and insulted - by our Legislature, and last, but
not least, that we are truly and heartily devak
_ ted to our government. ,Come k fetus all join

and each one lend all his might in aid of our
bilave ;men in the field. They give their time,
t t
or and their lives - ifir us; let us give
them ur aid and sympathy. - We, in behalf of
the m nagers of the Fair, respectfully ask every
one help us. If there is a farmer who can
. spare ut one egg, and but one potato, let us
have it.: We wilt lake anything that can be
turned into money. - Come and help us. Conie,
oome; and when this unholy war is over, we
oan all feel that we have dOne our share in pro
ducing the glorious result—an undivided coun
try, peace and prosperity, and freedom for all,
rich and poor, white and black, alike. Come,
friends. lay aside for kday or two your business,
and your selfish - concerns, and, for the honor of
old Franklin, assist in raising a htindsorim con
tribution for the. Christian Commission, to be
used for the cOmfo — it of the defenders of our
homes, our lacris and oar national honor.
A youthful, friend of ours baying undergone a
medical examination by the Draft Surgeon, in
formed us that the Doctor told him he had "An
gelina pectoris.", Poor fellow, guess he must
be in love ! it
Friday last, Mr. Latshaw, the caroling officer
ior Franklin township, Adams county, met a
suspicious looking character on the road, and
questioned him as to his residence. He an-•
swered that he resided in that township, but
When interrogated as to the names of his neigh
bors, he found that-Mr. Latshaw was likely to
detect him and he said he had made' a mistake
—that he resided beyond Mereersburg. From
his confused and Unsatisfitetorystatements., Mr.
Latshaw felt s it his duty to arrest him, and lie
did so. -The prisoner shade no resistance„-but
proposed to walk back to New4.Salem ; but on
the way he took the first favorithle opportunity
to jump the fence and ran away. Thti officer
pursued, and was joined by
. the People of - the
neighhorhOod ; and after a chase of about three
hours,lhe was recaptured without being injured.
Officer Latshaw _then bound his feet-together,
and started for bharribersburg- to. deliver 'the
prisoner to Capt. Eyster, the Provost Marshal.
Latshaw and the prisoner were in a single seat
ed buggy, and , Mr. 'Sloneker rode behind on
horseback When in the South Mountain; the
prisonermenaged quietly to get his feet loose,
and when opposite a dense thicket of laurel, he
sprang from the buggy into the bushes. Mr
Sloneker fired at him and lodged a ball in his
shoulder, making a slight wound, but it did no,t
arrest the prisoner. Latshaw immediately
jumped( from the buggy' and rushed ‘into the
thicket after him, and - called to him twice to
halt or he would fire; but' the prisoner contin
ued to get away as fast 'as possible. Latshaw
fired and struck him in the hip, shattering the
bone badly, and of course arresting his prog
ress. He at once called -out that he was mor
tally wounded. Mr. Sloneker went up to him,
while Latshaw pursued his horse, and the pris
oner told him that he wasSatally injured—that
he could not live long,_ and at once admitted --
that he was a rebel spy, and had met aj net fate.
He gave his name us Lloyd,,and, stated that he
had been in this section making observations
for the benefit of the rebels.
-He :is a man of about forty years of age,
stoutly built, with dark hair and goatee, is quite
'intelligent, and has evidently not been a labor
ing man. It is more than probable that he, is a
rebel officer. On his person was lonia a belt
with nearly $lOO of gold, and he had Chatta
nooga and Virginia rebel money, and a little
Pennsylvania currency. He represents him
self as a native of Lee county, Virginia, but
says that he has livedin Missouri for some years,
and was about to return to. Lee county. He
had a letter, with the date and place where it
was written torn off, Which refers to a journey
to be undertaken, and certain information to be
conveyed; but it furnishes no clue to partieS in
complicity with him. He had also a Cincin
nati paper of the `..Bth ult. in his : pocket, from
which we think- it probable that he passed
through that place several weeks ago. He wail
in this town a feiV days before he was arrested;
tried to sell some gold at the Bank, and - very
carefully scanned a map of the county hanging
in the Bank. ,
thigh wound-is very serious, but not ne
cessarily- mortal, and his recovery is altogether
probable. Had Ilia wound been less dangerous,
it might have been difficult to gather \ sufficient
- evidence to warrant holding him as a spy, hut
when he was shot he supposed he was about to
die, and he admitted his purpose and business,
frankly. He is now _ in the Hospital in this
place, in the custody of Gen. Couch, and will,-
we learn, be sent to Fort Mifflin as soon as he
recovers sufficiently to be removed. Great
credit is due Officer Latshaw and Mr. Slonaker
for his arrest and delivery to the authorities at
this place. We presume that Lloyd came into
our lines through the Cumberland mountains,
came East by way of Cincinnati, and inerio to
escape through the Shenandoah

particularly in the more Eastern States, gave

attendance of Teachers and an extremely sparse
audience, the meeting was one of interest. The
President at' the close of the meeting, spoke
warmly for the great cause of popular educe

want of interest manifested by the people, gen
erally in the education Of their offspring, that

have been received in this place from a number
of the gallant boys of .this famous Regiment,
giving vivid and interesting accounts of the
great raid tinder Gen. Kautz on the Peninsula,
in which th-y were prominent participants. 'ln
a letter before us, it h;" stated
, that the 6"ni
mind, numbering' ahouf twenty-right hundred,
-approached within six miles of Riehmoud, over
roads nut heretofore traversed by any of our
troops, and greatly to the consternation of the
inhabitants of that section. The destruction of
property of various kinds by this raid is almost
beyond computation, and the-raiders captured
a greater number perhaps, of Ne,gioes, Horses,
Mules, &c., than has been taken by any similar
expedition since the commencement of the war.
The results will be a severe blow upon the re
bels; and will greatly asissit Gen, Butler in
carrying out the purposes of his important
campaign. ThOcommand were out fourteen
days and are now safely encamped for arshort
rest ut City Point. Among the cifsdalties sus
tained -by the 11Th on the raid, we regret to
record the death of George Elliott. son of Mr.
Marion Elliot, of, who v.-as killed by
bushwhackers. •
