- :GOSSIP WITH Oun.VitiEztas.- 7 lf any of our
'City acquaintances desire quietness, laziness; a
general sense of nothing to (Jo and unwilling
ness to attend even toilet, let them come to
C--4 ---g.` Should another raid be made,: and
the militia once more called out, farewell to
peace - End quiet. Now or never. There is only .
one e/ass•of persons busy in th e y a r e
tie - Fair sea—tire mean, of course, the ladies
- clamed in tbe-Vain ' They are as busy as the
busy bee," they " improve each shining hour,"
taml gas light too, they "gather fronfevery (male)
flower," " opening" his pocket book and ex
trooting "honey" (money) any where. • Verily
the Christian Commission has ale - tive agents.
The Fair mast be a success. Once more we are
,requested to appeal to our country friends for
aid.; The ladies say they will -take anything
saleable, no matter how small the quantity.
Many a little makes much. '..Little drops of
'Water make the mighty ocean." Nothing will
come - amiss. This is the last appeal. Help the
brace men who are fighting our battles. Even
old kn. Grundy, who is • usually so particular
and s 9 prudish, succumbs in the prose nt instance.
She nays she don't like Fairs; she don't ad
.anireyoung ladies making shopwome.n.af them
except for money, she don't like Old Folks'
7 eonderts, she don't-like tableaus or any-kind of
theatricals; she don't like nonsensicalities of
any kind, but that the present object is so de--
serving that she won't say one word till the
war is over. So now we haven clear course ;
-let us make time. Of course the old lady
nerves the right to thisk what she pleases, but
- least of all to be thought disloyal.
-Blessings im her dear false teeth, her snarl is
%Vont thin her bite.
Extensive preparations have been made for
the ,Old Folks' Concert, to come off next
week, and all who attended the concert of the
same character gotten up some years since, can-
not fail to appreciate the present one. The
same parties are associated with. it, and the
"sumo master spirit •at the head. Mr. Ayers'
name assures perfection in every detail. •
To the curious we would say with regard to
" thbleauz," that they are all right—artists, and
chemists, - and carpenters, and upholsterers, and
'costumers have been busy ; and a formal an
nouncement will be made in good time. • .
• Pittsburg.—To make a remark that has'been
insinuated once or twice by contemporary wri t
ters, "P—g,is cloudy, smoky, dirty, busy
and noisy." When twenty miles away we saw
the dense cloud that overhung the city, and as
we entered the cloud we felt, and smelt, and
tasted the same. Boats are now running on
the rivers, giving a bustle to the banks that ex
ceeds anything of the kind we ever saw in the
east. Every one seems absorbed. in the Fair
which is now opened. Truly the citizens of
P---g are ahead in good works savoring of
loyalty. We beg leave to state to the Smith
sonian Institute the, fact - that we saw the sun
.sbining in Pittsburg at 12 M., -,Time 3d, 1864.°
It must-have been the Sun, for we know of no
thing but the sun that could have presented the
appearance in the Heavens of a• large, round,
red globe of fire, like an overheated coal-stove.
Heat seemed also to proceed from it, and streaks
of yellowish light, very muck like dark streaks
• of yellow clay athwart the face of a healthy
truant school boy. Actualcd by scientiac.en
ti.iairy we - carefully examined the moon last
night, and concluded. that the Pittsburghers
can't get up anything like so good a moon as
they have at Wallack's theatre. Socially this
city-is glorious. The communism of dirt brings
all upon an equality, coal heaver and proprietor
alike. The markets here are perfectly luscious, ,
the rhubarb stalks - being "t)f the size of small 1
fence rails, and the strawberries—we won't
say'howlargo, for we'd neverbe believed. Coal.
coal oil and iron are manifest to all the senses
whichever - way one turns, and tl4'noise of curs,
carts, drays and wagons is perfectly Itevvilder-
Og. :Let no one sc'eVng rest come within the
limits of Pittsburg, but for one that wishes to
see the developed industry of this great cone
try, this is the place.

THE DRAFT .;COMPLETED.—The Draft • for
the deficiency in the quotas Of this Congress
ional District under the respective calls of • the
President for 300,000, 200,000 and 200,000 men'
closed with Bedford county on Saturday, Som
erset having been drawn on Thursday, and Ad
ameand Fulton on Friday. We gave in our last
lane? a list of the drawing for this county. That
draft, as reported, was for the deficiency., and
an addition'ef : fifty.per cent. The order, how
ever, for the percentage has been revoked, and
the amount indicated has been deducted in the
proportionate ntimber of the last names drawn
for each sub-distriet, leaving only the actual de
ficiency, and the names of those drawn in ex
cess of the actual deficiency of the townships
are returned to the wieel. It should therefore
be understood that only those drafted until the
deficiency was filled have been notified to at
tend. In the. subsequent drafts for the con:
ties of the District, the drawing was for the de
ficiency alone. We give,the correct aggregate
of each county.
4O i FaHon..:
245 I Bedford.
Throughout the entire Draft a very -large
number of persons coming under the second
class were .drawn, and also very many who are
now in service. One Editor, and a remarkably
large proportion of Physicians, Clergymen, and
Postmasters obtained prizes, and also two or
three Enrolling officers. The attendance to
witness the drawing was quite sparse, very lit•
tle interest being felt in the matter.
The Board of Enrollment will sit in Gham:
bersburg • during the present week to hear
claims for exemption, receive commutation
money and substitutes. From Monday the 13th
to Friday the 17th they will be in Gettysburg;
from Monday the 20th to Wednesdagyhe 22d
in M'Connellsburg; from Friday the 24th of
June to Friday the Bth of Silly in Bedford and
trom Monday-the 11th of July to Monday the
18th of July in Somerset. Persons drafted
should not fail to meet the Board promptly on
the dates indicated in their notices. Those re
fu4ing or neglecting to do Se must remember
that under the law they- are regarded as de
serters, and very unpleasant consequences may
By the amended law the Payment of Three
Hundred Dollars only exempts for the drafts
under each separate call. In other words a
man who is dratten the drawings made to fill
up the quotas under existing calls and payS three
hundred dollars is only exempt until the first
draft under a new call for men, when a like
Burn will be required, if he is again drafted.
The son who is the Support of aged or infirm
parents is no longer exempt, nor is the distinc
tion in favor of : sons at homo by reason of a
certain number of the same family being in the
army longer regarded. In fact the only causes
for exemption are furnishing an acceptable
subslitute, • permanent physical disability and
the payment of three hundred dollars.
YEW UNION POLE--.UNFORTUNATE ACCI
DEST.—About the last act of vandalism and
meanness perpetrated in section during the
retie' invasiaNast year, was the, cutting down.,
of the splendid Union pole in our Diamond.
The credit of the performance belongsto Dn.
boden'a Guerrillas, who seemed-to bo the rear
guard of the rebel horde. Recently a number
of our citizens resolved that the old pole should
be replaced by one of finer finish and greater
length. The timber was accordingly purchased
and a pole about 133 feet long was prepared
under the direction of Capt.'W. H. Sulleriber
ger, to whom the Committee awarded the
work. The time fixed for raising the pole was
5 - P. M. on Monday last. At that hour the
Diamond was crowded with citizens, who had
assembled to witness the raising, and again
greet the old flag from thq place where it float
ed proudly ;From the fire, week of the war up to
,when: our soil was polluted by the
legions of Rebellitin aid Treason. All were
jubilant, and the Diamond resounded with
shouts of joy and patriotism, and to these man
ifestations was added the music of our
Band, who, using for the first time their ,splen
did new silver instruments, seemed to catch the
spirit of the crowd and to play better than ever
before. , Every thing being in Teadiness, the
pole was nearly placed in position, when the
derrick used to raise it broke, and down it
came with a crash," breaking the three upper
splices into fragnients.• The wildest excitement
ensued, hut fortunately no one was injured.
New splices will at once be provided, and if
the work - can be completed in time, the raising
will -take place with we hope full success, on
A GREAT DOG.—Capt' Rodes, of the Frank
lin Hall Restaurant, in this place, has a dog
who if not a very attractive dog in appearance,
yet has a history somewhat remarkable. When
Capt. Brand's (subsequently Captain Rode's)
Company was •organized at Camp Slifer, in No
vember, I'B6l l one of the members named May
hew was presented with a . young dog, which he
named "Ike," in compliment to one of his com
rades. " Ike" was with Mayhew from that
period in all the severe and long marches of the
company through Virginia. In the battles of
Cedar Mountain, Rappahannock Station and
Second Bull Run he was in- the midst.of the
company, fearlessly standing by his master.
In the last named enrigement ho was taken
prisoner, and the whole company mourned the
fate of poor "Ike." Si ngularlymiough, when
months after,the company was marching through
Warrenton, "Ike" was recognized on the door
step of a fine residence. and was at once cap
tured, giving at the same time ,uninietakeable
evidences of joy at- rejoining his pro - bit:tors
Mayhew had been killed at South Mountain,
and 'fake" became the property of the com
pany, and from the circumstance of his master's
death, a greater pet than, ever. The last fight
"Ike" was in, was at Fredericksburg, where
he stood by the company with his usual un
daunted courage and fidelity. He now wears
a collar bearing the' names of the various en
gagements he was in, and will find in Captain
Rodeo a generous protector, as long as he lives.
Who says "Ike" is not a great dog.
BUTCHERS ON A RAMPAGE.—The butchers
of Chambersburg agreed on the 20th ult., to
raise the price of meat to 20 cts. per pound for
single, beef-steaks`; -16. eta. for roast• and steak
and 14 cts. for boll'ing and steak. Mutton is
put up to 15 cts. for hind-quarter, and 10 cts.
for fore-quarter; arid veal goes up to 10 and 12
eta. , The result of this must be to reduce the
Coniumpticrn of meat fully one-third or perhaps
one-halqn this community, and so far it will be
advantageous to the health of the , people gener
ally. We consume vastly too much nieat, and
people will be amazed after a feW weeks of de
. the enormous prices, at their im
proved condition under very moderate meat

diet. We do hot by
_any means advocate the
vegeiarir doctrine=-on the contrary-we regard
good beef as invaluable to all classes; but, as a
people we have grown into its most immoderate
Use, and thus made it a- cause instead of a bless
ing. The way . to reduce the price of meat now
is to consume as little as possible, and the peo
ple should make ,common cause to bring about
reduction. - The present rates
prohibitory to a very large portion of the people.
ANOTHER HERO DEAD.—The remains of
Mr. 'Noel Hall passedthrough this place for in-,
terrmept in Hagerstown. in charge of Mr. Ja
cob P Noehi3n Thursday last.
This young hero was a son of kr. Wm. Hall
of Hagerstown, and a grandson of our venerable
fellow cititen,,John Noel, Esq. Hewers amem
her of Co. K, 12th Penna. Reserves, having,
joined the company which was called the "Mc-
Clum-Rifles," and commanded by Captain
John S;Eyster, on the day of its organization
in this place, -April 21st, 1861. Mr Hall was
in every prominent engagement from the battle
of Drainesville down-to the eight days' fight in
the Wilderness, when he received his mortal
wounds, and was always conspicuous' for his
gallantry, and noble bearing. lie escaped in
jury in every conflict save one, the Second Bull .
Run,. receiving in that action a very severe
wound. In the second days' fight in the Wil
derness he was shot in the knee and both arms,
which produced his death on Tuesday evening
of last week. He was on the verge of man
hood and justly esteemed for his correct habits
and generous nature. Peace to the ashes of
the noble young soldier.
