Gosstr WITH OUR PRlF.Nos,First of April
in New York, and not a joke. No April fools
here! Aliis• soba'r reality. Here we work,
work, and when we are tired workin, we work.
Oh, to have seers One little boy, no Atter how
little, try lo make au April fool of cnirsrirrs, with
no foreign pr extravagant aid. first is not
even moving day in Gotham—the first of May
being selected for that amiable purpose. All day
long my hean has been in affinity with: my dear
ameipa of Chambersburg. Surely there will be
. no moving today. So many of us moved (and
were moved movingly) last July, that we ought
to be satisfied to. the- end - of time. Well, well,
we're not much worse off, I guess, than " our
`erring brethren" of Columba', S., C., or even of
Richmond. . . •
I was horror struck the other day, in opening
my Bible accidentally at Proverbs 21,17, to read:
" lie tlmt•loveth wine and on, shall not be rich."
Alas, for Pennsylvania! 'Why I know some
preachers who talk oif with more zeal than they
ever exhorted ; and some very good men who
are regular Baptists on the oil question. The
opinion of any eminent theologian on the subject
will be thankfully received. The REposrroia
will publish it " gratis, pro boOpublico."
I take this public method of apologizing to the
employ etc of the Pevisylvaniu Railroad company,
Who asked slime friends of mine (and myself) at
the Poiladelphiabepot, whether we "•were go
ing through," meaning to Pittsburg. One of us,
a profound thinker, knowing that the floods had,.
at that time, interrupted travel somewhat, an
swered "Don't know, sir; I intend to
...dart." The man looked hurt. I apologize in
the name and for the sake of the company.
While on the railroad, I might an well record
that on the Camden and Amboy Railroad a drun
ken soldier, who hurruhed- for Jersey truth an
extent that his Jersey birth was a certainty, got
iibliard at Trenton. selected the aisle as a couch,
spoke patronizingly of Grant, emphatically of all
skunks; and wound' out by selecting your Mao
. cent Gossip as a vial wherein to bottle his wrath,
informing him that he knew him *ell, that he
was a Surgeon, absent from the army with
out leave." The conductor seemed to enjoy it.
Indeed I feared he would put me out, as my ms
euce seemed to exasperate the soldier. as a red
rag does a bull. •
By the bye, it wouldn't-be out of place to tell a
funny scene that occurred on the Cumberland
:Valley Railroad, on my last trip to Harrisburg.
Two women pzissengers forgot themselves and
:went past their station. The cars were under full
headway. They jumped up, and got some coun
tryman tti pull the bell. The .bell was pulled, the
'engineer stopped short, expecting at least an axle
was broken. The women got out quite coolly.
Now I always knew the Cumberland Valley Rail
road to be clever, but this tops all. Me thinks I
heard the condnetar growl, or if not he ought to
have - d one 'so.
The small patches of Ares our occasionally sees
in the city look green, giving a foretaste of spring!
As we get older, the resumption of nature seems
to give us new life; and as the sap circulates hi
the dry branches, our blood hounds with new vi
gor. A day in the countiould berm!, pleasant.

LOCAL LAWS.—We have official copies of the
law authorizing the collection of the additional
$2OO botinty in this county for last year, arid also
the law prohibiting stock from running at large:
The following is the
SPECIAL BOUNTY LAW
SEertox.l. Eit enacted 4c., That the several wards,
boroughs and distriats.6SFranklin County he and the same
are hereby authorized to levy and collect sufficient tux to
pay the sum of $7,00 to volunteers enlisted .priorto the
19th of December, in the year 1864, whenever that soon

the excess of 15200 to each recruit are hereby legalized
and the same shall be paid out of the tax hereby author
ized to be collected. The bounty tax for said excess
shall be levied and collected in accordance with the pro•
visions of the net of 25th August, led 3, entitled a supple

We give also the law relating to animals at
large. It, is a copy of the law that has been in
force in most of the eastern counties for a number
of years, and it will doubtless son be the law of
the entire State. With some people the habit of
foraging`their stock upon their neighbors has be
come a sacred custom in their eyes, and they think
it an infringement to interfere with them. In this
immediate section every farmer and lot owner is
daily threatened with the destruction of his crops
by the.euttle turned loose every morning tyj get
their food as best they, can t and hunger oftcTim
pelii them to master the best of fences. Persons
who desire to have stock range in the mountains
during the summer have only to procure the con
sent of the owners of the land the cattle are likely
to range over, and they are then safe in turning
them out.' The following is the
LAW TO PREVENT STOCK FROM - RUNNING AT

horses, sheep or swine, shall be suffered

notice previous to ouch sale. If said owner shall pay to
the constable the said penalty of two dollars, and also pay
for the keeping said animal or animals, then it shall be the
duty of the constable to deliver said animal or animals to
the owners; but if lie shall make a miens aforesaid - . — he

and expeneesto the owner; and the constabl e king iamb

said constable resides for everysauch neglect or refusal.
ILLUMINATION OF 3LERCERS.BUMG.—The re
cent evacuation by the rebels of. Petersburg and
Richmond, and the occupation, of them by the
Union troops, was good news to the country, but
to none more so than to the people along the bor
der, It needed but a confirmation of the "firstre
port to send a thrill 'of joy through the hearts - of
the citizens of Mercersburg and vicinity, who
have not only seen. the rebels in their midst, but
felt them. On last Wednesday evening the whole
town was beautifully illuminated. Many of the
private residences were quite tastefully decorated
with flowers and wreathes amid the numerous
lights. Every one seemed to be possessed of
happy heart over the good news. The Theolog
ical Seminary, a four story building, was illumi
nated by tie Professor. .and students from the
lower floor to the large cupalo surrounding the
_bailing.. Lights, to the - number of 381, were'ar
s tiitteally arranged in the many windows. It pre
sented a grand sight. At an appointed hour the
citizens assembled at the Seininary building. Th e
meeting was organized by culling Captain S A.
Bradley to the chair. Dr. T. Negly, R. P. Slc-
„ Farleind, Esq. and 0. L. Murray, Esq., were cho
sea Vice Presidents, T. C. Grove, Esq., Secretary:
Rev. T. Apple, of Greencastle, then addressed
the assembly, after which the quartette connected
with the Seminary sang a piece entitled
Sword of Bunker Hill.” Dr. H. Harbaugh was
ifext intrgtuced, who entertained these present
with remarks appropriate to the occasion. The
quartette followed with a song entitled
the Field of Glory." Rev. Prof. Higbee nfade the
closing address. after which "The Star Spangled
, Banner" was sung by the quartette, the audience
joining in the chorus. The exercises were closed
with three-hearty Omen for the late triumphs of
the Won ann.
The event will he long remembered by those
who participated in this exhibition of joy - oser the
downfall of Richmond, the key to the overthrimc
of the rebellion.

REJOINSG.—The news of the capture of Gen.
Lee und *entire army was received here about
midnight Sunday, and was announced to the pub
lic by the firing of artillery and musketry and the
ringing of the town belle. A large crowd collect
ed about the Town Hall; and ben-fires were kin
dled in willow; parts of the town. The people
were jolly beyond expression, and manifested their
gratification at thei dawn of peace in every ima
ginable way. Speeches were made in different
parts of the town! by Messrs. Judge King, Rev.
Mr. Smith, M'Clurf‘, Everett, Stewart and per
haps others, and tt e celebration was kept up on
the principle that `twe won't go home till more l

recapture of Fort Steadman, the 29th watt under
Gen litirtrauft, Major Ritchey's right eft was
grazed riy a musket ball, busking the skin, just
as then "entered th • action. One of the officers
of the regiment, in,a private letter says. that the
only trouble he had was to keep the coloeser
geant from going too far in advafice of the regi

Sinceithe above was in type we received the

DIED oF STARVATION,—Mems. John Mowery,
17th Pa. Cavalry: Samuel Winters. 107th Pa.
Vols., both of Mercersbarg, and Lewis Caullinau,
of Fulton count), also of the 107th. hays all died
recently of starvation :while imprisoned by the
rebels. Mr. Winters died at Annapolis, Am af
ter his return. Mn MA% ery died in Mercers
burg on Saturday last, and Mr. Cautfman died in
prison. Since our armies haie penetrated the
South and compelled the excluinge of our prison
eri, the Nation is just beginning to learn the ap
palling brutality that has characterized the rebels'
in their treatment of our prisoners. They have
systematically starved them to death as one of
their measures of war, so that when au exchange
was affected they gave us skehlous for- sound
men. But it has not availed. he God of bat
tles has avenged this shocking brutalily, and rebel
pnsoners now occupy the Libby's of the-South.
Cot.: DAVID B. SPKtitat.—The 'Union League
of Philadelphia has comileted its eighth regiment
of volunteers organized-under its auspices since
the war commenced, and the ninth is about to be

1855 In November of 'tint year he was serving
with Beauregard on the works at Fortijifiloion
and St. Philip, below New Orleans. The knowl
edge then gained by him was of great service sub
.sequently iu the operatioue,of the United States
forces against those Works, Weitzel being at the
time with Gen. Butler. At the inauguration of
President Lincoln, Weitzel commanded the com
pany of Engineers that served as body-guard to
the President elect. Since then he has been in
active service, always acquitting himself with the
most distinguished bravery, and to the entire Kit t .
Vachon of his superiors in command. He is an
engineer of the highest ability, and a thorough and
brave soldier in_every sense of the word.
THE New York IVorl (Democratic)construes
the capture of the rebel_capitaliu language that
may be fitly quoted in conne 'l6n with the strong
Saxon of the Richmond En iner. The follow
ing points from the World's leader are well ta
ken: . ,
The moral effect on the South of the fall of
'Richmond will he far greattfr than if Grant had
sticeeeded in taking it iri The early part of his-last
year's campaign. Now-that we have:demonstra
ted the gimertil military weakness of _the_rebels,
by marching great armies through the heart of
the South, and taking all their seaboard cities,
the fall of their capital and last remaining strong
hold must be accompanied with a feeling that
they have nothing lett to fall back upon. Ilad
Richmond.been taken in the spring or summer of
lastyear, a retreat would have been easy into itt•
most any part of the South, which, from the At
lantic to the Alleghenies, and from Chattanooga
to the Gulf, was under the Confederate sway.—
But the most they can now hope is to maintain a
doubtful contest in the mountain region. To ea
cape with an organized army across the Missis
sippi is only not impossible, but even if there were
no other obstacles, it is unlikely that soldiers from
Virginia and the other Atlantic States will con
sent io be led tlot anmense distance to fight in a
cause in which t mcy will no longer have the per
sonal interest of HMI fighting for the protection
of their homes, and whose Success only madmen
can any longer expect."
