GOSSIP *ITO OUR FRIENDS.—When our dear
gossips read this, Christmas will be past ; the
cakes, candies, turkeys and mince pies eaten ; the
toys broken ; the presents all made, and the
Christmas of 1865 buried with`the ghosts of hun
dreds of , Christmases that have preceded. When
Clement: C. Moore wrote " The Night before
Christrnis;!' why did he not cap the climax by
giving as "The Day after Christmas." He might
have " held the mirror up to nature," in describ
ing the-agocies of overfed children ; aye, too, of
adults—sick head and stomach aches. How
solemn he might have made the line,
"In hopes that the Doctor soon would be there I"
Methinks I hear the old Doctor parodying the
words of the still older St. Nicholas—
" Now, ginger I now, Jalap I now, camphor I and squills,
On, mustard ! on, croton l and down with these pills, tool"
Mark this, children. •
" lie 'poke not a word, but went straight to hie work
And filled all the bottles, his face all a smirk
And putting his cane to the tip of his nose,
And giving a nod, down the stairway he goes.
But I beard him ' ha-ha l' ere he drove out of sight,
'Merry Christmas I ha-ha! a sick child's my delight!
Well, it's a mercy we have a whole week to ta
per off in, and then comes "New Year," when
the old 'un is led out to execution with all• the
boarcsof war, and the new one is ushered in by
silly - men and boys with many a salvo from!, shot
guns and pistols. Of all the New Year customs
in our part of the country, that of the colored
people's marching in grand procession and singing
hymns, is the pleasantest and most sensible.-
- There is some poetry.in it too, notwithstanding a
few white scoundrels usually molest the harmless
trovatorea. I hope the custom will be kept up,
and that no one will be mean enough to interfere
with these poor people in their simple amuse
ments this year. Remember, tee hare allowed
them to fight for us, shoulder to shoulder.

informs me that the very best " non-conductor"

Northern end of the public square, (so called from
its being an oc tagon,)
. Chambersburg, comihnia--
ly called the' Diamond, my face to the South. On
my rightstood a two story stone house, on my left a
twostory brick: the name of Miller upon the former,
of Hoke upon the latter, advancing; ou the right
I saw the name of 11rttson upon a brick_ house,
and that of Gelwicks upon another, both of two
Aeries ; and then a large three storied stone build
ing, devoted, apparently, to boots - , 'shoes and clo
thing, though-it hail the air of having formerly
been a hotel. Then wyes fell upon a large
Hotel, brick, of three stories, and containing a
- 'soothing store and a barber shop. The name of
Hoskinson was affixed to the store, that of Monks
to the shop, next door was a pleasing looking white
plastered building, of two lofty stories, with col-
MOB extending along the entire front and reach
ing to the full height of the building, which arose
in two lofty stories, there was nothing about it
to denote its .charticter, bat I looked in the open
window and seeing heaps of gold and silver, and
piles of Bank notes, I concluded it must be a
Bank: Further.on I came upon a third house in
which clothing was sold; large two storied and
filming fatback, along side of the monied insti
tution. I had now reached the southern extrem
ity of the square, at which point I turned about;
and to the right stood a two-story rough-cast
building, and the name of Hamilton aratCo. upon
a sign, setting forth that stoves and tin ware were
there for Sale. Near by arose a large Wickthree
story mansion, with a dry-goodi store in the first
corner, a bindery and printing office overhead, a
telegraph office in the middle, and a book store
at the northern corner. I paused involuntarily in
front of the book store, and experienced a kind
of choking sensation similar that one would
agine to be produced by attemptingi\VhTioW

Myself on sacred ground, even before I read the
gilded lettering on the glass door, I reverently
bowed my head and proceeded "with melancholy
steps and slow" passing a law office in a corner
of the same building. I now found myself in a
beautiful grove of lindens, fronting an immense
public building, with greeian pillars on its two
fronta i - anda cupoTo on top, crowned with an effi
gy of the patron saint of the count(r)y, on the
front was emblazoned a coat of arms, together
with a legend stating, with-the ingenuous frank
ness pertaining to the golden age, the exact cost
of the erection. Thence I came to where anoth
er huge pile of tripple storied brick reared its
vast front, within its extended compass were
law offices, a billiard. saloon, a restaurant, the
remnants of a ten-pin alley, two stores, a public
Hall, and some societyseoms. I had now reach
ed my starting point, and had turned again, with
an innate dread of coming evil, to gaze once
more; when, on a sudden I heard the tramp of
armed men, a mighty flame shot up from every
house, and in a moment I saw naught but shape
less masses of blackened bricks. Trembling I
awoke; and even yet as I write=-for my life, it
seems to methat "it is not all a dream."
GEN. Wm: J. PALMER—Oar readers Will re
member the daring exploits of Capt. Palmer here
wen Lee occupied Hagerstown end threatened
to invade Pennsylvania in 1862. Since then Capt.
Palmerhas commanded 17th Pa. Cavalry, and

adier. In the reports of the Secretary of War
and the Lieut. General, we notice_with gratifica
tion the - honorable mention given Ito Col. Witt. J.
Palmer and his command. The Secretary says
that to Col. Palmer belongs• the credit of giving
the "last blow to the rebellion in the southwest,"
and that blow giv en 200 miles away from the
main body, which hal sent Hood, bleediniktand
crippled, on the back trt.k. Col. Palmer's per
sonal command was the 17ut Pennsylvania (An
derson) cavalry, which compoo portion of the

Jeff. Davis began his retreat, Col. Palmer was

The whole forming a scene which will not soon
be forgotten, and which must be seen to be enjoy

For the benefit of the latter class, and all others,
we are glad to hear that another perfoirmance

RADWAY'S READY RELIEF.—Thia meilicarueitt
needs no eulogiran. "Good wine needs no bush," and
the Ready Relief is %sown best recommendation. Within
a few minutes after its application it will prove that it de
serves the name it bears, and is a "ready relief' indeed
to all sufferers Who use it. Rubbed Spots the spine, or
backbone, say fur ten or twenty minutes at a time, about
three times a day, and away goes at once all the pain re
suiting from such female complaints as leucorrhea , weak •
ening discharges, obstructions, retentions, prolapsus, uteri,
hysterics, headache, d.c., the complaints themselves grad
ually disappearing if you only persevere in the application
of the Ready Relief _ For all spinal affections, for weak
-.mess, rheumatism, trervousnex neuralgia, lumbago,
- spasms, sciatica, gout, paralysis,. numbness,' diseases of
the kidneys, bladder, urethra; for pains, in the small of
the back/ in the hips and thighs; for weakness and lame
ness in the hack or legs, rub the spinal (*lama well, In the
manner mentioned, and you may depend upon a certain
and speedy cure. Some prefer to rub with Ready 'Relief
the part of the body afflicted with pain or disease, and in
ninety-live cases out of a hundred tilt pain Will vanish at
the first rubbing; if not it will surely go at, the second.
This is especially the case in attacks of croup, diphtheria,
sore throat, hoarseness, pain in the breast, pain in the bow
els, sprains, cuts, bruises, wounds, cramps. chilblains,
headache, tilts, sore knees, feet. Joints, legs, arms. and so-
on. A teaspoonful in sweetened water taken internally,
besides the external rubbing. soon carries off a diarrhoea,
cholla, dysentery, looseness of the bowels, cholera rnorbus,
heartburn, vomiting, convulsion's, sick headache de.
What medicament except Radway's Ready Relief can ar
ford "ready relief' under so many distressing circumstan-
N. B.—Radway's Ready Relief is not only the best, but
It Is the cheapest medicine in the world. Fifty cents ex
