en route for Pittsburg. Should this same ven

labels one and all as the came genus homo Pitts
burg. The Smoky City is dirty, but nothing like'
so dirty as her envious sisters would snake her out
to be. The story for instance, that the Pittsburg
mothers have to wash their children every night
to see whose children they are, is false; and yet
I mai say that the shirt I wore while in Pitts
, burg " bears its blushing honors thick upon it."
Heard a sermon from the Rev. Dr. Sprecher, in
the Lutheran Church, on Abraham Lincoln: and
'I would that every man, woman and child in this

Democrats in Pittsburg ? Like angels' visits,
surely! The Presbyterian General Assembly
was in session during my visit, and I was taken

readers will forgive me.
In a former letter I referred to my experience
in a sleeping car ; and this time I have something
to iay on the subject For the benefit of those
who have not seen or tried them I shall paint the

is only one drawback—you can't -select your fel
low-partners. I secured a double berth, which
left me only two partners, the one a Jew, the
other a Gentile, in quality- so similiar,that in the
expressive language of au old Chambersburger,
"you couldn't tell rother' from which." Our
beds were made about 9 o'clock, as we were go

dozed and dreamed I was a great', of coffee, the
genuine article; thrust into a las coffee mill—
then, that I was a grain of Whelpt, auiong other
grains, poured into an energetic hopper—again,
that I was a drum-stick, actively '/ employed by a
nervous drummer—and awoke—under the im
pression- that I was fulling down an immense
flight of stairs, and my head striking every step.
The Gentile bad a cold in his head, and snitrii..d;
the Jew had heart disease, and could only lie on
his right side, so he slept with his feet toward my
- head. As the night wore on I smelt feet, and the

me to gasp for breatti. I -prayed that I might on

but where 4reaily was. I longed to have been '
born in the far East, where the people wash their
feet at least three times a day. Just think ;
car load of feet—men's feet, women's feet, child
ren's feet, babies' feet. To make it worse, to
ward morning, one lady had to use peppermint, -
two gentlemen brandy, and one baby, for some
unknown reason was rubbed with camphor. Two
infants relieved each other alternately with cry

dead than alive, I arose about day.break. and
rushed to the platform of the car With the'definite
object of dashing myself on the track, but refreshed
by the cool air I thought better of it, and merely
resolved to eschew sleeping cars iMfuture, unless
I could afford to hire a whole one: At 7A. 31..
we reached Philadelphia.

tell how our beautiful valley might now appear
had not this noble man, on more than ono occa

Sheridan had command of that departinent. He
guarded and protected us. He risked his life, for
as at all times and tioder all circumstances : and
now it behoves us to give him sonic token of our
gratitude What would better do it than a home
in our midst t The place to be selected should
be in Cumberland or Franklin County. The funds
could be easily raised and in such a manner that
all would feel as though they were doing their
duty. Let a committee be appointed in each
township who can collect and hand over the
amount raised to the Treasurer of the fund, The
two counties can work together, and if they do,
I am certain that we can accomplish this object.
He deserves it if any man ever did, and in our

he has so long toiled and labored." -
ANOTHER VICTIM.—We learn that Corporal
William W. /Raabe, of Co. E, 101st P. V., died
in the rebel prison, at Andersonvilli, Ga., in Au
gust, 1864, of disease contracted while in prison.
• The deceased leaves a wife and child to mourn
BSir sad and untimely death Corporal Staube
was a true patriot and brave soldier, end one who
never failed his country in her hour of need. He
was one of the firatto respond to the call at the
beginning of the war, when Columbia's flag had
been trailed in the duet by traitor hands. He
served as a member of the Jackson Independent
luas,..Co. A, 12th Regt. P. V., during the . three

in Co. E, 101st Regt. P. V., which was stationed
at Flivroutli, Nortfg.Carolina, and a few weeks
previous to big itopnsigumr, bad enlisted in the
same regiment at Plymouth; North Carolina,
where they fell into the . bands.Of the enemy. The
hardships of his prison life were the canoe of his
death, in a few short months. He suffered se
verely until death came and opened his prison
doors, and we'new hope that he is free, for whom

that he has enlisted in that army of immortal

SCHOOL—The proceedings of this body, lately in
session at Pittsburg, Pa., are nut of much general
interest, although considerable routine business
was transacted. The report of the Board of
Church Extension was read. It states that the
osent closes ten years of church extension :Work
through the' Board. In that time its receipts have
been $252,363, and formal appropriations amount
ing to $203,316 have been made to 506 different
churches, being an average of $359,22 to each.
These a pprppriations have aided in securing church
property to the value of one and a half million of
dollars, and. providing church accommodations for
more than one hundred thousand worshippers.
For nearly-eleven years prior-to the organization
of the present Board, the General Assembly con
duct the work of church extension through a
• comiiiittee of the Board hi DOmestic missions,
and in that time made appropriations to three
hundred and eighty r two churches, and received
donations amounting to $68,544 06. Since 1844
the church has aided in the erection of nine hun
dred and forty-eight { different churches, and has
raised $320,910 forlhat purpose. On the Ist of
Apritinst the Board had on hand, over and above
its liabilities.ithe sit`m of $24,048:
Awn:a. A BAR .—Quite an excitement was
created at the railroad depot one morning last
week in reference to a baby. It seems that an
: •
advertisement apileared in one of the Philade'-
phia papers 'Wanting a person to adopt a child.
A youlig, married lady in this place responded to
the advertisement, and requested that the child
he sent here. Accordingl,l the child, in care of
a nurse, arrived in due time and was delivered to
the lady. • Atter keeping it over night, the lady
concluded the child was too young and she car
ried it to the depot to return to the nurse, who
intended to go buck to the city in the morning
train. but the nurse peremptorily refused to take
it and the lady just as peremptorily refused to
t eeep it, and laying it down on a settee in the
'Passenger room, walked off,"and after some little
persuasion the nurse took charge of it.
den and unexpected death of Rev Joseph Clark,
on Friday last, resulting from tlie,„injuries he re
ceived on the Monday previous, calks gloom over
the entire community. Although it was wep
known that his injuries were severe and painful,
yet no apprehension was felt for his safety until
a few hours before his death. His condition first
became known to himself, and to the great stir
prise of his friends, at a time when all indications
seemed favorable. he expressed the opinion that
he could not recover. His loss will be mourned
by a - large circle of friends, and will be sorely felt
by the church, of jalrerhe had for a long time
been an earnest and able supporter, and by this
community, of which he was a valuable member.
MORE HoME REBELLION.—On Sunday night,
May 7, the stabling on the premises of Mr. William
Slupaway, of Union township, this comity, was
set on fire aud d totally consumed. This dastardly
act, it is pOty certainly ascertained, was the
work of somelp,.t.the miserable law defying Cop
perhead traits and deserters who still prowl
about the lower end of this county. Mr. Ships
w-nr, n most genuine Union emu, has been instru
mental in the capture of several deserters, bohfity
jumpers, &c., in the above locality, henie this
outpouring of the wrath of these contemptible mid
night incendiaries upon his bead. The fate of Booth
their great prototype, would be a deserving end
to their thieving, burning, disloyal existmices.—

A SAD CASE.--Joseph Jones, a member of Co.

this place last Week, having lost both legs from
the effects of Camp Fever settling in them, ren

make ample provision for all such, as they are
wholly unfitted for taking _care of themselves or
making a livelihood.

PItEAII.I34,E and resolutions adopted by Company D,
210th Penna. Vols., on the death 'of their comrades, Wm.
B. Lubber and Benj. F. Soler
WIIEREsei, The mournfal state of our Country during
the past four years has demanded the sacrifice of the lives
of so many ofour best and bravest men, nod we are called
upon to modrn the loss of our beloved comrades, Wm. B.
Leisher and Benjamin F. Suter, who fell at Gravelly
Rum Va., March 31st, 18115, whilst bravely battling in
in defence of their country,; therefore.
Resolved, That while we bow in humble submission to
the will of Rim " Who death all things well," our hearta•
are filled with the deepest sorrow for the death of those
who by their amiable disposition, uniform courtesy and
manly conduct have endeared themselves alike to all
who knew them, and who by their duties, not only in
camp but on the field of battle, and the sacrifice of their
lives that the Republic might live, won the honors dne
alone to the tine American Soldier, and written their
name, as with a pencil of light upon the imperishable roll
of the Nation's martyred eons.
Resolved, That in this hour of their sad bereavement,
we tender to the parents and relations of the deceased
outheartfelt sympathies.
Resolved, That these resolutions be published in the
FRANKILN ite.mdiottic and a copy of them be furnished
their relatives. Capt. H. W. MCKNIGHT,
Capt. G. W. BARNES,
seph Clark, whose sudden death startled our community
on last Friday evening, and will sadden the hearts of too
many friends abroad, was in many respects a very re
markable man, and It is befitting that some public note
should be made of his history, character and attainments,
now that be has passed away from the earth.
Mr. Clark was born near Carlisle, Cumberland
this State on the Ilth day of October, 182.5. He received
his preparatory education 41131°m-field, Perry Co., Pa.,
entered Marshall College. at hiercersburg, Pa. in 11845,
and was graduated with the highest honors of his class in
September, 1848. litimediately after this he entered the
Theological Seminary of the Presbyterian church
at Allegheny City and finished his course of Theology in
the spring of 1851. On the 11th day of June, 1851, he
was licensed to preach the gospel by the Presbytery of
Carlisle, and on the 3d day of June, 1852, Se was ordained
and installed pastor of the Presbyterian congregation of
Chambersburg, to which be had received a call. In this
capacity he served with great acceptance until Oct., 1857,
when be was absolutely-compelled by physical disabili
ty to relinquish the active duties of his Holy ministry.
We have been told that before be could be induced to do
this, even upon eminent medical advice, his disease bad
become so virulent that he was frequently obliged to stop
in the midst of a discourse pod leave it unfinished, as it
would have endangered his very life to have proceeded
any farther.
Under these circumstances be reluctantly consented to
resign his pastorate, and with a view of recruiting his shat
tered health and gaining a livelihood, he engaged in a
mechanical pursuit, and infused into the establishment in
which he was an active partner, a spirit of enterprise and
a degree of energy which was eminently characteristic of
him as a man, and which crowned his business operations
with complete success.
With this work, however, Mr. Clark perhaps never had
any real sympathy. But he was conscious before God
that it was a necessity laid upon him and was satisfied with
that. Without, therefore, attempting before Ines getter
ally that his action which would have been
unnatural to one of his reserved disposition, and which
- would not have relieved the case, he did *bat his hand
found to do with all his might Whenever his strength
permitted, and he was called upon to do so, he officiated In
the sanctuary and always successfully. Almffiet the fast
work of his life was to prepare an address for the day late
ly observed by the nation in humiliation and fasting—an
address which in the mysterious Providence of God he was
not permitted to deliver, but which we hope will be given
to the public in some other form, for although not u fair
representation of Mr. Clark's abilities, an additional inter.
est is given to it by the fact that the hand that penned it was
crushed immediately afterwards, and the voice that should
have delifered it has since been hushed in death.
. .
The active out-dour employment of Mr. Clark for the
few past years, brought hien improved general health, and
with this came an ardent desire to be relieved from has
secular businesi that he might now more fully employ his
talents in the service of has Lord and Master. That he
would ever have been physically able to sustain the tax
and strain of preaching regularly was a matter of grave
doubt, and in view of this he conceived the idea of estab
lishing a Theological and Scientific Review fur the de.
fence and promulgation of truth. This seems to have
been the darling wish of his heart, and to this end he had
offered his business eitableshment fur sale. and was ma.
king efforts to provide the funds and enlist the .talents of
others in the new work. His immediate friends here and
elsewhere know how earnestly and Amiably he spoke of
the want of such a Journal in the State of Pennsylvania,
and how sanguine he was of its emcees% And that It
would have succeeded with him as the Editor, no one who
knew , the business character and talent of the man ever
doubted.' But all of these plans and projects as far as he
iscconcerned, have been frustrated ty bas apparently pre
mature death.
• Mr. Clark was distinguished for his rare intellectual en
dowments. He gave evidence of great and diversified
talents when yet a boy. Even while in the lower classes
ofbollege he was a brilliant essayist; and be pursued not
only some tummies Masselses, but .tl the-stmllos embmemi
in the course with curb thoroughness and ease as to gam
for him quite a reputation with his professors and fellow
students. He did not, like a great many boys, confine
himself to the task assigned to him, or even to the text
hoOks used, but read and studied all he could find on any
given Subject, frequently wAndering off into the beautiful
tleldeot science, literature anti art, and coaling back la
dened with fruits and flowers; and his knowledge was not
a Mere accumulation of farts, and dates, and ideas, held
together by a meehanital memory, but everything was
a ell digested by the power of his vigorous and well trained
mind, and was available thereafter for proper use This
course he pursued throughout the whole of his literary and
theological curnculum, and it is not to be wondered at
hat when he came to the work of his ministry he should
be able '`to bring out of his treasure things new and old."
Those who listened to his preaching, well know that it
was characterized by earnest logical thought, and that the
bloom of his mind made any subject of which he treated
fresh and interesting. There are doubtless among his err.
mons, and other manuscripts, many rare gems which, if
gathered into a volume, would win for their author a more
extended reputation than be hats and be the hulas of do
ing much good. And we question whether it would be
proper to leave these Jewels of piety and thought all an•
strung and forever hidden from the eyes of men.
It is not surprising that a universal regret should have
been expressed when Mr. Clark was obliged to retire from
the pulpit, for however brilliant the opening of his profes
sional career, it seemed to be only the dawn of a brighter,
clearer light. Bur thus it often is, that the loftiest mind
is lodged in the frailest tenement of clay, and seems to have
its powers of usefulness circumscribed. And yet Rev
Jo•. Clark did nut cease to be a vigorous student, and this
Is an evidence that he belonged to that elms of Men "a-hire
mental pleasures never cloy." There are very few men
Wlla amidst the awes of engriasing business Bud time or
disposition to prosecute their literary' labors as he did. In
the quiet of his own cottage home. when the work of the
day was over, be sought relaxation among his books,
gathering up the thoughts of others, and in the mountain
felling trges or, on the homeward way digesting and ap
propriating thig intellectual and spiritual food until it all
became his ovri. That was the way he spent and enjoyed
toe previous f Ours that many waste in mere listlessness.
And the result of all that reading and studying was not
entirely withheld from the world. Mr. Clark not only
preached many good sermons, and made addresses before
literary institutions, but furnished learned criticisms and
brilliant essays for the most prominent reviews and journ
als of the land. Into these his writings always found a
ready admittance, and won for him the highest encomiums
of the wisest men in the country.
Those who knew Mr. Clark need not be told that he was
gentlemanly in all his deportment' and kind in all ethic
relations to his fellow men. If he was conscious of his su
perior talents and haniing, it never seemed to make him
rain, or unehantisble to others. His ill health did nor
make him irritable or impatient. With all his habits of
thoughtfulness he was not morose or unpleasantly ob
structed. If he Was reserved it wan not the result of
coldnens. Ind of modesty-4 trait that nearly always ac
companies a retiring, coutetnplature mind. In the circle
of familiar friends, moreover he, is known to have been
exceedingly - companionable and pleasant

ion to the end of his llto. This was the crowning glory
of all, and is the only hope" and comfort now. For with.
out a saving faith in Christ all else had been vain, With
oat this there nee er could be in any case a strong healthy
symetrical diameter. Without this talent and genius are
dangerous gifts anti he who attempts to explore the mazes of
science and philosophy aided by these alone. enters upon a
dark tempestuous ocean without chart or rudder or guiding
mar, and will be wrecked in the end. No one was more
conscious of thin fact thee the subject of this notice him•
and we nigh that we had tune and space to give
some extended extracts from his owu writings in proof of
this assertion. As it is, we may be 'indulged in giving a
few. In an address made F. 0111.3 years ago to a literary so
ciety of young men, 31e. Clark said:
"We would be far frtim denying that there IS such a
tlimg as natural virtue, or thilt She mere natant virtues
have.made strong characters, on the whole, safe and pro
lific of good deed. But all such high types of moral prin.
ciple, we hold to be the result oi the indirect or reflex in
fluence of the religion of Christ It or dm great educator
of conscience. And the very highest type of mural prin
ciple, that which will stand the greatest shocks, and may
be relied on in the most perilous moral emergencies, can
only be fairmi in connection with genuine personal Mfg.
ion. If this be wanting there v. ill always be some points
that will not tear pressure. And in the christian these
points will be strengthened just in proportion as the ele
ment is pervading and powerful. The strong character
then to be safest and beat, must be imbued with the sane•
tifying power of the grace of God. Unsanctifled perver
ted power has ever been the scourge of the wortd. The
developmeet of the Intellect and especially the develop•
merit of those faculties which make the strong character,
without a corresponding development of the moral nurture
can only begot a pourer to destroy. But glorious and
Godlike issanctified power. Where the development of
the moral nature keeps pace with the intellectual, and the
two unfold in beautiful and harmoniums adjustment, 'tie
there we have the highest style of man. • The strong head
and pure heart make the great man and the good Ilan
combined. Force of character, when (limited into proper
channels; and acting under the impulse of noble motives.
gives to history the benefactors of the race and to every
community the men who are its light and salt."
So too, Mr. Clark, in closing a most able criticism upon
the life and character of Lord Francis Jeffrey, the English
reviewer, says: "With him religion was altogether an
outside matter, and we fear it continued so until his death.
This, we say, is the only thing in Jeffrey's character that
gives ns pain. Ills moral influence, both' in society and
literature, woe certainly of the purest kind, but with all
his moral worth and terser of mature, he Is almost wholly
destitute of the consciousness of his spiritual iviuds. And
surely it is painful that so lovely a human character should
have lacked so sadly the 'one thing needfuL" '
And, again, be concludes a most judicious analysis of
Bailey's Festus, thus: "Religious gentile's never safe, ex

franidin qambersburg,
We remember to have seen other and even stronger ex
pressions of the kind in the writings alit Clark, bateau
not avail ourselves of them just now. No wonder that one
whose study had convinced him that no man was safe
whose anchor was not "cast within the veil ;" no wonder
that one who bad been accustomed to point oat the rock
upon which others had split, should, although bound
honestly to shrink from no investigation. come out of all
the intricacies with which science has appe are d to em•
harass revealed religion, and say to a venerable friend
and professional brother, "Though my feet bad almost
slipped when standing within the areana, they are now
on stock. I have shrunk from no inquiries and will feel
forever hereafter that I may firmly confide in the written
word of God, and link all my hopes to the incarnate One."
Thus the first net of the cbristinn's life is "I believe."
The last is "I know in whom I have believed." "This
it is that giveth us the victory. even our faith"
At a meeting of the pastors and other resident clergy.
