Gossip WITH OUR FRIENDS.-Llt has long been,
and is yet, - tt great wonder to reflective minds that
some one has 'not written an essay upon " Wait
ing for the train." Peycologically speaking,
"waiting for the train" superinduces a state of
mind that has striven in vain to com
prehend, so far as medical treatment goes. Un
der delirium tremens, for instance, the nervesbe
-come so sensitive that the buzzing of a fly may
sound, like a hurricane, and the whisper of a ten
der nurse cause the blood to congeal in one's veins.
But "waiting on the train," however, is totally
different in its nature. To establish my medical'
opinion I will give an account of a desperate at
tack ofhe abovoihentioned disease, from which.
I suffered last Saturday night- Line, Camden
and Amboy ; waiting point, foot of Barclay street:
time, 7P. M.; weather, juicy. Walked upon the
dock, where-there are ticraccommodations at all
for passengers, and asked a Jersey Irishman when
the boat would lie in. He informed MO that no
boat had qatthat day on account of the fog,
hilt that a freight boat would probably bring in
the paisengers at Pier No. I (a mile furtherdown.)
The Irishman was clever, communicative and af
fable; offered to take me into the Hoboken ferry
house alongside,. where I could wain myself
without paying the usual three cents, and adviiMil
me not to depend upon the boats " at all, at all."
I thanked him for his kindness and mentally re
solved to use my influence with the company to
have him sent to the U. S. Senate in place of
Gee. B. M'Clellan, deceased. Walked through
four inches of mud to the railroad office, foot of
Courtland street, and enquired how the passen
gers would be likely to come Was there in
formed that the boat had gun' out. " Why,"
said I, " she has not, for I saw her at the wharf."
" Well, then," said the Jersey official, "the pas
senge-ra will come in by the six o'clock train via,
Jersey City." "It is after six. now," I ventured
to remark.• "So it le," was the answer. _ "Now
that I come to think of it, they'll most likely come
by the' eight o'clock train." Hurried over to
Jersey City, and made enquiries of the ticket agent
there. " Maybe they will, and then again they
mayn't," was his answer. I waited in tho'cold
till eight, no train—till nine, no 'Crain. 'Went to
the agent again. who told me " that they hadn't
been ou time lately,, and that the ten o'clock came
in generally ahead of the eight o'clock train."
TWA . was some comfort. Trittar up and down
to keep from freezing till ten and a-half, when the
train came iu with the friend I was looking for
—eight hours from Philadelphia to New York. I
can not say that the hours were wasted, for I saw
much, heard much and thmight much during
this, time. I saw a fight, a real knock 'clown.
Some one in the ferry house put a string of fish
in a gentleman's lap. The gentleman remon
strated, unreasonably of course,—so the fish
owner thought—and words followed, then blOws.
Need not describe;• the fight minutely, but I tilist
my readers will be as Much pleased as I was to
know that it proved a dear string of fish to the
fellow. .I heard any amount of swearing, steam
Whistles, complaints and growls; listened with at
tention to the refined conversation of a score of
hotel runners and hacknien; and learned many
valuable statistics of *ew York, in slices, from
sundry dirty-work men. I thought of my wet
clothes, damp feet and cramped limbs; and like
the man who wrote the burial of Sir John Moore,
"bitterly thought of the morrow." In some of
the churches, members are admitted on probation.
Wouldn't it be a good idea to prove them at the
C. &A. It. R.,.Depot, in Jersey City. and my
word for it if they can stand that, they can easily
resist the devil and all his works. .
Need I say that I regret, that every citizen of
Chambersburg regrets, the departure of General
Conch and staff from the old town. There is a
tinge of sadness about any change, but especially
so in this case. We. had grown to know and to
respect one another. We looked upon the Gen
.eral 1a friend and protector, and many of us
had formed such acquaintance and intimaci with
his staff, is will last our lifetime. May health,
suqless and happiness attend the gentlemen vvher
eve.k they 0!
IVe have ad our second snow, and the little
boys hat ad a merry, time of it. The horses
and the women. who must be out in all weathers,
have not had a merry time of it. The sleighs
were out in considerable force, but dear me! the
tar and omnibus horses htive bad a terrible time.
Broadway is as slippery as glass. In a short
promenade, about dusk, I saw horses,- men u boytil
add one lady fall, each one according to his or her
instincts. A horse goes dow;n after a little effort,
and when down, lies quietly, as much as to lay
"come and pick me up, somebody, please." A
man,kicka - up one foot and then the other, grabs
at the moon, tries to kick off his own bat and then,
falls. A boy goes down as though be liked it;
but ii lady wriggles into a heap like a bungle of
old cloths to be picked up by the first member
of the - human-e society that comes along.

'4 MI LITARY CHANGES.—Headquarters of the
ipepartment of the Susquehana—now the Depart.
Meat of Pennsylvania—were removed to Philadel
phia sever;ti weeks ago, and Maj. Gen. Cadwak
ader, ending the Department, has been there
since tkie o der of removal was issued. Maj. John
S. Shultge, .A. G. and Capt. F. B. Swerengen
A. D. C. remained here until Thursday last to
close up the business, When they also left for the
new bead-quarters. For nearly.a year and a half
Maj. Shultze bas been . the Asst. Adjutant General
of the Tiepartment and on duty at this place, and.
in-all his intercourse with our people- official and
social, be has won the highest measure of respect
for hii , courtesy, promptness and eminent soldii;irly
qualities. Capt. Swerengen has been less prom
inent in his official relations with the people ; but t
he leaves us as widely respected as he was known.
Both have gained distinction in the field and bear
honorable v ounds in vindication of their gallant
ry. We are glad to know that they vvill'remain '
connected with the.4ead-quarters of the Depart
ment at Philadelphia.
Gen. Ferry is now on duty here as commander
of the -Juniata District. He in an experienced
and well tented military• commander, and the
members of his'staff are well known DI : .our midst.
Capt-Jahnston and Lieut. Ripley have been on
duty here before when Gen. Ferry was engaged
on mart martial, and we doubt not that they will
prove an aeceptible to our people as tuey are effi
cient in the discharge of thir important trusts on
th 3 e border..

well for the people of every enrolment district to
see at once to the correction of their lists. It is
difficult to do it in the little time that can be al
lowed when a draft is ordered' and shoot to he
made; but now the officers have more time and
can give it that attention its importance demands.
Besides if not corrected before the quotas are
fixed it is always difficult to get a correction, as it
must - be made by the Provost Mansbal General at
Washington, while the District Provost Marshal
is competent to correct enrolments under the in
structions of the authorities at Washington. We
doubt lot that the enrolment in every district in
ithis i torinty is very imperfect, and the errors are
generally of such a character as count against the
people in in up quotas. Every mairwho has
moved from file district since the enrolment was
made; every one since dead; everyone since en
listed in the service ; together With those over or
under age, and aliens—all should be ascertained
by a competent and energetic committee, and the
proper proofs procured and presented to Capt.
Eyster, who will at once strike their names from
the list, and thus lessen the quotas. Any one en
rolled also who suffer from " manifest, physical
disability" may be stricken off; but wh4n at all
possible such claimants-for exemption should ap
pear before the board-t 7 as they can now dO at
any time—and be examined and discharged. Per
sons claiming exemption on the grounds of alien
age, over or under age, or having been two years
in service, should also appear before the board in
person. True they can be exempted after they
are drafted; but their names remaining on the
lists when the quota is ascertained imposes un
just burdens upon their districts. The localcom
mittees should see that all such eases appear be
fore. Capt. Eyster at an early day. A copy of the
enrollment of any district will be furnished by
Capt. Eyster to any authorized committee of the
citizens—not to individuals. The Board will short
ly viA the several counties and sit at the county
seafflo correct the enrolments;, but committees
from any county need not wait for the appearance
of the Board in their midst. The Board is making
an earnest and faithful effort to do justice to all
the districts in this matter, and if they are but
seconded properly by the people, who have the
greatest interest in the matter—no injustice will
be done any district when the quotas for'anf fu
ture call - are awarded. • "_
WAR INSURANCE.—A new feature is about to
be•introducfld in the border counties, in the shape
of insurances against depredations by the enemy.
This is common in marine insurances.. Scitredly
a merchant vessel goes to sea that is not insured
by the owners against the rebel cruisers; but the
insurance of_buildings, &c., against the enemy
bas not been widely adopted. In our advertising
columns to-day will be found the card of the FMB
nix Fire Insurance Company of Brooklyn, prof
fering war risks through Mum. H. Tailor, Esq.,
the agent in this place. and we eomniend it to
public favor'. We made very careful inquiry into
the character of the company, and wine so fully
satisfied of its integrity and solvency that we had
a war risk issued covering the REPOSITORY office,
so if our particular friend Gen. M'Causland calls
this way again and concludes to clean out or burn
up the REPOSITORY, he may as well understand
in advance that his vengeance will fall elsewhere'
than upon its, proprietors. This character of in
surance is necessarily costly ; brit tss the war is
not likely to last very long, owners of valuable
property wciuld do well to take such:A - As by the

Fort Darling. The length of these works is not
less than fifteen miles, formed of a line of heavy
earthworks about five feet high, interspersed
every five or six hundred yards with heavy forti
fications, and faced with strong abatis inside of
the picket and videfte stations. Then there are
inner lines of works supporting the outer lines, so
that the whole line of breastworks and fortifica

Butler's extreme right, is not less than thirty-five
miles, and, taking the sinuosities and the suppor
