GOSSIP WITH OUR FRIENDS.—In the midst
of the unseemly rejoicing over the capture of./
Mrs. Mr. Jefferson Davis, once the President of
the so-called Confederate States, it has struck your
loving gossip to sit down calmly, and have some
familiart. l chat over the affair. We have all read
what may the public history of Mrs. Mr.
Davis' arrest,--but the domestic, the inner, the
Penetralia, sanctum. sanctoruni account has yet to
be given—and we of the REPOSITORY have,been
selecled by a kind providence as the unworthy
mediiim. Reflection and experience, united to a
natural shrewdness, have confirmed us in the be
lief that male reporters . , such as those of the N.
Y. Herald. Tribune ; and Times; of the Philadel
phia Inquirer and Press; of the Cincinnati Com
mercial, and the Baltimore American, are hum
bugs and utterly unreliable in such a case as the
one I>efere as. Guided by the intention so modest
ly hinted atabove, we at once, upon receiving a
special dispatch stating that Mrs. Mr. Jefferson
D, hhd hastily left Richmond, started on his track
afemale reporter Whom we had had in readiness
for the said occurrence, with orders to admit no
rest to her feet, nor slumber' to her eyelids until
Mrs. Mr. J. was caught. We will not say
who 'auggested• to the - gorernmel* to advertise
$lOO,OOO for the arctgraitor-ess—let that pass;
but it is a duty to ourselves to say that we
know what we know, arid more too. This lady
repikter had been selected by our old friend, Mrs.
Grui9y, and the result proves that, as usual, Mrs.
G. was right. For good rmiins which we are
not yet at liberty to divulge, the name, former oc
cupation and residence of our estimable employee
must be kept a profound secret.
With this preamble, we will now give the re
port which can be implicitly relied upoia

-My Dear Sirs:—The shell broken, and the
chken is spoiled. The jig is up. J. D. is no
ridire—at large.— this Morning at 3 1. M., Lieu-
Ant Colonel - Pritchard, of the 4th Michigam
Chtdry, surprised Mr. Davis and family by a l vi
sit at that' unexpected hour. t•As you directed me,
I Overtook. and joined Mr.Disis' escort at
and have participated . in his °flight ever since,
much to the derangement of .nly...gardrobe; indeed
I have not one band-bus left ; but never mind my
oivri affairs. though I may just as well here re
mind you of your promise "to make all right to
me in case of any loss." I had been very wake
ful all night, and bad just fallen into an unquiet
doze when I was aroused by a screech from Mrs.
Davis "that the Yankees were upon us." She
shook Mr. Davis, who was I) ing near me on
Wish mattfrass, withoutlicking; but the poor man
was so exhausted that it was with the greatest
!Realty that he could be aroused ; and indeed I
- heard him murmur in his disturbed sleep some
thing like "Bother!" At that moment I heard
the trthnp of a body of horse, and an occasional
p'stol shot. Mrs Davis' agitation increased fear
and.at fast, by sticking a large hair pin into
that part of her husband's body whence mortifi
cation would - be least likely to ensue, the stern
statesman (am ?town) was awakened to a full
sense of his desperate situation. His first cry
was "a horse, a horse, my Presidency for a horse !"
No one seemed inclined to risk a nag on such se
curity, and no horse "forthcame." . He then in a
gentler voice, begged for a mule. No mule ap
peared. The tramping increased. "Mr. Davis,"
exclaimed Mik - D., "what is to be done?" He,
• thus interrogated, moved his eyes restlessly from
side to side, ever and anon striving to peer into
the 'darkness,itt did not reply. The tramp of
horse nowbecame quite distinct. In an agony of
terror„Mrs. D. snatched up some of her THINGS
and.hListed„upon Mr. Davis' putting them on.
"Never!" he exclaimed with emphasis,. "I'll be
hanged It I do?' (He was right—heslid piit„them
on, and he wi ll be hanged.) H ikfarmly sur
rounded him, writing their pe ' asions with Mrs.
D's, each forcing upon him on and another arti-
cle of female apparel. Imagine a noblelOn gur
rounded by a swarm of entreed natives darting
javelins into his tawfiy sides; or a gigantic bull
baited by a bevy of matadorea; or even a bull
dog in dog-dayi bunted by a crowd -

The fact is, they confused him, and his mind
was obfuscated with their shrill clamor; while
they forced the Sardanapalian clothing upon him.
I myself overheard him say, in a musing under
tone; "Achilles dressed as.a woman; Don Juan
dressed as a woman; Augustus Ctesar went still
farther; The Turks all dress like their woman:
worth makes the man; be that lives and runs
away may live to fight another day; I will sacri
fice my 'pride upon the altar of my confederated
country ; the-last ditch is not here, 'tie in Texas;
I yield." Then in a loud and majestic tone he
spoke : "Do with me us you will." They im
mediately did so, and MiCmoment he stood forth
a woman from the neck down to the calves (Whin
!ego. Thiquadrupedaniial sound was now fright-
"My Dear," implored Mrs D., wringing her
hands in an-agony of fnght ; "go, run, escape, fly,
mizzle, pitt; evacuate, propel, circulate, proceed,
leave, depart, .swartvvout, hurry, haste, quit,
MOVE YOUR ;BOOTS."
He clasped his wife in his flowing sleeves,
straipeld her Wide corsets, and was away, aswith
a lightning like dash the Michandera came up
reitre-a-terre. The nest was vvartn,tut the bird
4 Spread yourselves," was ythe Captain's cry.
They spread themselves, and soon an unprotected
female withiong boots was seen making tracks
for the woods. A philosopher or cabinet .offiCilr
I would have stopped tO .consider whether Oar ,
strange creature was a man in female attire, or a
woman with boots on; but as the pursuers were
only soldiers, the hybrid was caught, and lo it was
Jeff. who made a faint show of resistance with 'a
handsome bowie-knife. Jeff. was brougnt into
camp ; was treated with all the courtesy due Ids
assumed sex, not the slightest - indignity being:of
rered his person, and as he sat in his feminine
sternness, he occasionally gave a reproachful look
at his long boots, as though saying Pulse friends,
I trusted to foil, and you betrayed me—et two
boots." At this juncture, Mrs. D. (the other Mrs.
.D.) rushed frantically upon 'the scene; threw her
arms about the captive repudiator, and after an
embrace that brought tears into the eyes of the
soldiers; told the men in a majestic tone Of voice,
that chilled toe very marrow of The bronzed
veterans, " to take care, or the President might
hurt some of them." At that moment I was watch -
iugJ. .I).nario - wly, and 1 feel assured that - Mr.
riot whisper the warning to Mrs. D._ The
iderkwas Mrs. D's entirely. Our boys did take
care; and up to the time of writing J. I). had not
hurt any one. , A telegram was instantly sent to
Gen. Wilson informing him that had secured
Davis in Wet. nati's clothing." The General under
standing the dispatch to say that we had caught
him, and secured him by swathing him in woman's
clothing, returned an angry reply, ordering Lieut.
Col. Pritchard to se/ease Mr. Davis at once.
Anotherdespatch was sent explainin g the mistake,
and we all had a hearty laugh at the General. I
wished very much t. have talk with J. D.,
something like that the New York Herald repo!'
ter had with Gen. Lee, but had time to ask him
' , IAA one question, as follows : " Mr. D.," said 1,
" are you as Episcopalian 7" " No, madam,"
' said be," I am a SecEtign." Mr. Davis is a re
tigiotte man, I know,' for I heard him whisper to
hiznaefr " The woman whom thou gayest to be
with me, she gime me and I did * '."
I was informed - by a member of his family that
air: D. refused to fix Mrs. D.'s headdress on his
own head, on the ground that "Bate desert a
siOng ship." Nu more at present, etc., etc.

..FEVANCE AND TRADE.
The new 7-30's are offered to the people with .
the reservation that the, government ma t convert
them into six per cent gold bonds at any time;
and the subscriptions have fallen off very mate
rially. The general expectation that the remain
ing $230,000,000 would not be offered immediate
ly stimulated the subscriptions enormously, and
the last Week presented the extraordinary spec
tacle of nearly one hundred milliobs being taken
by the people after four years of most exhausting
war. and when the public debt had reached seve
ral thousand, millions. It shows that the people
have unbounded faith in the government, and
mean to sustain it unsparingly. There is no long
er a question as to the ability and purpose of the
people to supply the -government with all the
means necessary to close up the war and maintain
the public credit. •t•
A meeting of the stockholdersof the Pennsyl
vania Imperial Oil Company was held on Monday
of last week in Philadelphia, and authority was
given to the Board to sell and convey such of the
company's property in LaYlonia as can be sold
advantageously in building lots. We learn that
some $70,000 of lots have been sold, and the pra
ceeds will be divided among the stockholders as
a special dividend on the Ist of July. The com
pany has no need for the revenues from lots, as
most of its wells are being sunk on lease; and its
immense reserved capital of 50,000 shares of its
own stock would supply ten-fold more than is
likely to be wanted for development. It is pro
bable that after the valuable lands of the company
are developed, the reserved stock will be divided
in a stock dividend. The Sterling company is
running two.engines day and night boring new
wells on its Cherry Tree Run lands.
An association was formed in this place or
Monday Ilast called the Walnut Bend and Pine
Run Company to develope certain lands owned

Considerable stir has been produced by the dis
covery of a substance supposed to be Peti oleum
on a farm near Concord, in this county, belonging
to the heirs of the late Alexander Irwin. It is
said that surface oil in considerable quantities is
found on the water, and subscriptions are being
taken to develope the lands. We have been in
formed that a party has proposed to 'bore for oil
and give a royalty to the owners of the land. We
do not yxpeit that the effort will be very liberal
ly rewarded. The same indications are found in
half the counties of the State, and hundreds of
thousand of dollars have been expended in Wash
inton, Fayette, Greene, Clarion and other coun
ties, but in Venango alone has it proved profitable.
Four-fifths of all the oil produced on the continent
is produced on Oil Creek and its tributaries.
Gold stands steady at about T. 30, and we look
for the commodities generally to settle down.ac
cordingly.. The necessaries of life must be-great
ly reduced in price during the summer, and the
disbanding of the army will make labor abun
dant. As labor enters very largely in the pro
duction of everything, prices cannot be perma
nently reduced until labor becomes abundant;
but that time is near at Wm& Fully 200,000

peace. Thu government will thus increase the
producers of the country very largely and at the
same time diminish its demands, and we shall
loon seestrade in the old channels again.

DR. JORNSTON,. Member of the Royal Conee to
Surgeona. London, Kraduate from one of the most eminent
Colleges of the United States, and the greater part of
whose life has been spent to the hospitals of London,
Paris, Philadelphia and elsewhere, has effected some of
the most astonishing cures that were ever knots. Many
troubled with ringing in the head and eurs when asleep,
mat nervousness, being alarmed at sudden sounds, and
bashfulness, with frequent blushing, attended sometimes
with derangement of mind, were cured immediately.

Appearance, such as ulcerated sore throat. diseased nose,

deafness, nut,' on the chin, bones and ann.,, blotches on the
tread, face and extremities, progreasing with frightful ra

the nose fall in and !Ale victim of this awful disease be

fore, Dr. Johnston pledges himself to preserve this-most
inviolable secrecy; and trum his extensive practice in the
first Hospitals of Europe and America, he can confidently
recommend a safe and speedy cure to the unfortunate vic

It is a melancholy fact that thousands fall victims to
this horrid disease owing to the unskillfulness of ignorant
pretenders who by use of that dreadful poison, 31ercury,
ruin the constitution, and either send the unfortunate to
an untimely grace, or make the residue of life miserable.
