GOSSTP WITH OURIRIEN - DS.—How little one
half of the world knows ofthe other half has been
said afi4 thought over and ttver again ; and how
little tog &WS the comfortable reader know of the
difficulties of the poor writer. Here; for instance,
is your 'unfortonate gossip without ink or a table.
He site on a stiff chair, a-book for a desk, and a
lead pencil for pen and ink. May the Amerietua
eagle lend the compositor a moiety of his eye
sight! ,I have been looking over the news of the
week (in the Sunday papers) for the past hour,
and have encountered such a mass of crime, and
wickednes4 and licentious gossip that, as Mr.
Cowper bah it, "my soul is sick." What delicious
news to read that Col. A. has eloped with Mrs.
B.; that Ifilly Mulligan has beaten hie wife to
death; the* a certain bar-tender has poisoned his
mistress, Or that George Jones, the Count :Man
tles, has sued Horace Greeley, for exposing him
as an impostor! How delightful to read all about
the Liederkranz ball; such as how two men
dressed respectively 2103 a stork and a frog enter
tained the crowd with a pas de deur.; how the
newspapers were represented—the Herald by a
man blowing his own trumpet, the Times by a
peripatetic boor-glass, till. Tribune by "a man
and a brother" astride of a seeming brass cannon,
the IVOrgtand Sun by the Heavenly bodies from
which they take their names, and the Zeitung by
a weather-cock ! But never Mind, the genial in
fluence of a talk with old friends has already
cleared away the clouds •of ill-nature. Come., let
us have one of our old-fashioned home talks.
The - Rirosrronic coulee to us regularly every
Friday morning, and no one but an exile can judge
how welcome it is. I read it from -page -one to
tinge four, and comment mentally upon,each and
every item. News' from Waynesboro', Greeneas
tle,Mereersburg, London, St: Thomas, Strasburg,
Greentillage or Fayetteville are equllly welcome;
and even Marion, Shady Grove, Cashtown, Ree
fer's, Scotland, Upton and Turkeyfoot, as small
as they are on the map, come in for a share of in
terest,'for are they not part and parcel of our
Own county of Franklin 7 The deaths and mar
riages too are sad and pleasant to read. A letter
from home is pleasant, very, but for news give me
the locatnewspaper. Even the editorials on Gen.
Coffrottijwith regard to his late vote in Congress
are quite readable, though I must say I don't
know from them whether us a Republican I am
called upon to admire or despise the Hon. Gent.
Don't tell me, either, that I don't read the adver

that W. 6. Reed is authorized to receive sab

I made him remove the odoriferous vegetable, for

—Advices from rebel show that there
is considerable fear and alarorat Richmond. •
The report of the commission to .investigate
theqhilure of the Petersburg mine was communi
cated to the Senate on Wednesday. The failure is
attributed to Gen. Burnside and other officers.
—Govomor Brown, of Georgia, in his message
to the Legislature, complains of not having been
properly supported in his efforts to prevent the
march of Sherman through the State, and also
adimadverts severely upon Jeff. Dais and the
—Gen. Gilmore reports to the War Depart
ment that in the rebel defences of Charleston over
four hundred and fifty pieces of ordnance were
captured. Eight locomdtives and a greit many

—An expedition under Admiral Dahlgren

,flagship, the Harvest

Atlent. Several others were injured in various

serious injury. The capture of Georgetown do

ado-runners and will entible us to communicate

such a course should be deemed necessary.
FINANCE AND TRADE.
Congrorto has p0e5....1. t 1 Lill for o uuw loan of
$600,000,000, to be issued at a rate of interest
not exceeding 7:30 per annum,and the law express
ly provides thfit no part of the same shall be made
legal tenders'.,, The 7-30 loan is just now 'im
mensely popular, and t is probable that the new
loan will be continued on the market in the same
form of the 7-30's now on sale. We believe that
the present sales, under the skilful management of
Jay Cooke, reach from ten to fifteen milllions per
Congress has Wisely guarded against any addi
tional indrease of currency. In ;addition to the
vast volume put in circulation directly by the
government, the National Banks are daily adding
very largely to the currency of the country,
and even the. 7-30 coupon notes not unfrequently
pass from hand to hand in individual transactions
as currency. Should the war cease within a few
months, of fen be contracted in its now vaStop
orations, the volume of currency that must neces
sarily be thrown into the legitimattichann'qls of
tOde would produce immense inflation. The
government, banks and all individuals who are
interested in guarding against violent expansions
and contractions, should unite to prevent a need
less volume of currency.

start with the confidence of the commifuity ttuit
its business will be discreetly and honestly mana
ged. We wore surprised to hear that our re
marks a few weeks ago, were construed by some
of the friends of that Bank into a purpose to de,
feat its charter. Nothing was fiirther from our
intention. ' What we said applied with equal per
tinence to the Bsy.k of Chambersburg and every
other Bank in this section of the State. 4.11 must
guard moat arefuny against expansion of their
business in the present "flush" times, for the rea
son that when reaction comes,
- while individuals
may claim extension and indulgence, Banks must
ever be ready to pay. The issue under the three
Banks now organized in this county will not be
as large as was the issue of the Bank of Chambers
burg alone under the State laws; and it must be
borne in mind that three institutions are now to
be sustained on the same business formerly done
by the Bank of Chnmbersburg, for however busi
ness may be increased just now, the, timynust
come when all channels of trade will imirtistet to
the old standard. The three Banks in this county
are limited m their-issue as follows;

Notional Bank of Cbranbersburg. ... 260,000 201,000
" " -- Waynesboro 541,000 45,000
Greencastle 100.000 ' 00,000
• These institutions under the National law emit
but 369,000 of notes, whereas the old Bank of
Chambersburg has circulated nearly double that
amount ; but now the general government has
circulation of font times the amount of tho old
bank issues, and it must continue for years to
come. The Franklin County Banks can all pay
fair dividends to their stockholders, but the same
capital would pay much better hi one institution.
However the local interest which attaches to such
institutions 'fully compensates the stockholders
for the difference in profit. They are of undoubt
ed and positive advantage to business men in h.-
gitimate trade in their immediate locality, and the
just pride of the citizens will contribute largely to
sustain them. •

interest in their producing well, but it is alleged
that they thereby realized More than by keeping
it. It is conceded that that the company owned
good lands, and with good management the stock

their maximum working capital is realized, they
will not offer additional 'stock for sale Until the
