Dampiiools and Railroads. The
question above all other questions that
used to agitate the public mind was, "Have
we a Rourbon amoDgu3?" Latterly, this
has given vsay to another inquiry, of like
magnitude and importance "Have we a
Dampliool among us?" The "us" in the
latter instance of course has especial ref
erence to Ebensburg and the people there
"We think we have a Damphool among

belief a "squib" which appeared in last

Road comes into town on seme Saturday
evenings, and then leaves us and we don't hear
of it3 arrival again for some time.
" 27iC Rranch Rond" means the Ebcns
burg & Cresscn D ranch Railroad ; and
when this Road "comes into toven" it
monies into Ebensburg. The members of
the E. &. C. RR. Company will be glad to
hear that their Road is possessed of the
power of picking itself up and transport
ing itself, at will, into and out of a town.
Tor, should it ever become a non-paying
institution, which the Fates forbid !
.it will be gratifying to know that, through
the exercise of this power, the Road, in -and
of itself, will ultimately be ab!o to ,

"It was kept open these other winters past
without much diiiiculty,

VcTy much gratified, wo assure you !
If the Road had not been "stopped," it is
possible the question whether we have a

Cambrl County and the Draft.
We published last week the quotas of the
several sulnlistricts of Cambria county
nnder tho draft, but lest some of our
readers may not have noticed them, we
herewith reproduce the figures :

Total number to be drafted ...405
With regard to Ebensburg, wc believe
the quota to be excessive.
Under the call of last July, for 500,000
men, our quota was set down at 22. These
men were put into the service ; after which
it was discovered our quota ought to have
been only 10. A credit was thus allowed
us of 6 men on future calls.
Our real quota on the 500,000 call was
therefore 1G. Now, for only 300,000
men, our quota, after deducting the fore
going credit, is given as 16. We may
add that our enrollment list is now tveenty-
five per cent, less than it was last July.
How it is possible for our quota to be
heavier under a call for 300,000 men than
it was under a call for 500,000 men, we
cannot see. Provost Marshal General Fry
sees it, however. He is ingenious in fig
ures a psrfect mathematical magician.
He is probably equal to the task of proving
that two and two make Jive.
The late call was xaade to fill deficiencies
under the call of last July. Ebensburg
had no def.cit.ncy under that call, and
therefore ought not now to be drafted.
Discharged from Arrest. The fin
ding of the court-martial in the case of
Capt. D. Wr. Fox, Co. A, 55th Pa. Vols.,
charged with defrauding his men out of
large sums of bounty money, has been
made public. ' He is honorably discharged
from arrest, and returned to his command.
Capt. F. is a Cambria county man, and
his friends will be glad to hear that his
skirts are thus cleared of the charges pre
ferred against him.
See advertisement of
Etchings. Mr. Joseph Parks, engi
neer of the locomotive which blew up at
Wilmore a week or f.o fcince, was eo badly
injured by tho explosion that he died
shortly afterward. He resided at Cone

undergone a short voluntary incarceration

day week, four boys went into a coal-mine
in the neighborhood of Johnstown, and
seV fire to a keg of powder ! The result
ivas, that one of the boy3 was instantly
killed, another will die of his injuries, and
the other tvo were badly hurt.. ..The Ex
change Hotel in Hollidaysburg was burned
to the ground on the. morning of the 2d
inst. Supposed to be the work of an in
cendiary. There was no insurance on
cither house or furniture, and the loss of
the landlord, Mr. Aultz, will be about
$10,000. The hotel was filled with gues
at the time of the occurrence, most "of
whom also sustained considerable loss in
money and clothing.. ..The quota cf Blair
county under the dralt is 451; that of
Huntingdon, 459; that of Mifflin, 280;
that cf Cambria, 405. Total quota of the

A Rascal. A fellow calling himself
William II. Roland, supposed to be from
Iassilon, O., arrived in Johnstown some
jinie last October, and, altera short court
jhip, married 3Iiss Louise Sirerael, (laugh
er of a shoemaker of that neighborhood.
Ie remained with his new-made wife a
(ouple of weeks, and then went to Tyrone,
stensibly on business, since which time
otning has been heard of him. Mr.
Villiam II. Roland is evidently a gay de-
eiver, and has no intention of ever re
turning to gladden the heart of her whom

Convention' of Publishers. A
meeting of the publishers of newspapers
in this State was held at Harrisburg,
on Jast1 Thursday. Col. W. YYT. II.
Davis, of the Doylestown Democrat, was
called to the chair, and B. Y. Ilam&her,
of the Cambersburg Valley Spirit, was
appointed Secretary.. There was a good
representation present. ,
After a call of the representatives pres
ent, on motion, a committee of seven was
appointed to draft a series of resolutions
expressive of the sense of the convention
upon the repeal of the duty upon printing
''The committee submitted the following,
which were unanimously adopted :
Whereas, At the commencement of the war
the price of printing paper was front . 7 to 9
cent3 per pound: And whereas, The same"
quality of paper cannot now be purchased for
les3 than 27 cents per pound,' being an in
crease of 300 per cent., notwithstanding the
price of the raw material used in the manu
facture of paper has not increased more than
50 per cent. : And whereas, The high price of
printing paper, and the enhanced value of
everything consumed by printers, have oper
ated to raise the price of books and newspa
papers in such a degree that a large portion
of the reading community can no longer allbrd
to4 buy the former or subscribe for the latter,
and have in many cases caused the suspension
of the publicatipn of newspapers, thus niacin"'
a serious obstacle in the way of the dissemi
nation of wholesome reading and striking at
the very foundation of our republican system,
the intelligence cf the masses ; therefore,
Resolvtd, That we earnestly recommend to
our Senators and Representatives in Congress,
the repeal of the duty on printing paper.
Resolved, That we condemn the conduct of
such book and newspaper publishers as are
engaged in the manufacture of paper and are
now endeavoring" to prevent the repeal of the
duty on paper, in order to hinder competion
with their own circulation. "
Resolved, That we hereby pledge ourselves
to oppose the re-election of every Senator and
Representative in Congress who unite3 with
the monopoly of the paper manufacturers, in
preventing the passage of the bill for the re
peal of the duty on printing paper.
Rtsolved, That a copy of these resolutions
be forwarded to the Senators and Represen
tatives in Congress from this State.
On motion, tho' convention then ad-jtftrrncd.
TnE Snow Blockade. As we went
to press last week, we mentioned that the
snow here was three feet deep ou the lev
el. This quantity has since beeu aug
mented, till it ii now fully four feet deep.
All last week, the winds remained out on
a holiday, and innumerable monuments in
the shape of monstrous Enow-drifts attest
the fact that they improved to the extent
of their abilities the time allotted them.
All the roads in this bailiwick, excepting
the "pike', to Cresson, were hermetically
sealed for days. No Northern mail went
out nor came in for a period of over one
week. The Eb. & Cresson Branch con
tinues shut up. A gang of workmen are
now engaged shoveling it out, however,
and speedy resumption of communication
"by rail" may be confidently looked for.
Till then, passengers and the maila will
go to Cresson and return on runners.
This is decidedly the deepest snow and
the severest winter wo have had since
'55-0. When old Hyems comes to abdi
cate bis scepter in the Spring in favor cf
the Goddess of Flowers, there will be the
rushing of many waters from tho moun
tains. Itf other words, when tb$ snow
goes off, there will be a "flood.'" The
people of Johnstown and tho valleys thro'
which the torrent must pass should be
warned in time, and look up their life

BLOOD PURIFIER 1
lliJf fcicat internal remedy is the best med
icine ever offered to the public'for the ef
fectual cure of Rheumatism, Gout, Neuralgia,
Dyspepsia, and as a Blood Purifier, it has no
equal for all diseases arising from an impure
state of the blood, such as Scrofula or King's
Evil, Scald Head, Tetter, Ring Worm, Female
complaints, and all break-out3 on the face or
body. The vast number of rub-on medicines
which formerly have been used for those dis
eases were merely temporary in tleir effects,
and of doubtful virtue, but the RHEUMATIC
COMPOUND reaches the source of all trouble,
and effectually banishes the disease from the
system by its immediate action on the blood.
We advise on and all to give it a trial, and
become satisfied of it3 wonderful power.

Mr. R. E. Sellers Dear Sir I think it a
duty I owe to you and the public generally to
state that I have been afdicted with Liver
Complaint for a long time, and so badly that
an abscess formed and broke, which le'ft me
in a very low state. Having heard of your
celebrated Livr Pills being for sale by A. R.
Sharp, West Liberty, and recommended to me
by my physician, Dr. F. Smith, I concluded
to give them a fair trial. I purchased one
box, and lound them juct what they are rec

and after taking lour boxes, I find the dis
ease has entirely left me, artd am now per

' D. S. Owen, Esq. Dear Sir la replv to
your favor of the 13th instant I would Viy
that the sale of Sellers' Medicines has far ex
ceeded my expectations : and in no ense have
they failed to produce the desired efiect. The
Cough Syrup is a cure for coughs, colds, &c,
and the cheapness ot the article places it
within the reach of all, which, together with
its efficacious qualities, renders it a universal
favorite. Not a day passes without numerous
calls for "the one thing needful," at thi3 sea
son of the year, viz, Sellers' Conh Syrup.
Yours, A. G. CUSHING.
From Rev, S. Wakefield, former Pastor of the
Liberty street M. E. Church.
Mr. R. E. Sellers It is from a sense of
duty, as well as with great pleasure, that I
bear testimony to the virtue of your justly
celebrated Vermifuge. I procured a Fingle
bottle, and gave it to three of my children,
who had been ill tor several weeks. The el
dest wa3 seven years old, the next four, and
the youngest eighteen months. The first
passed fifty-six worms, the second forty-seven,
and the third a considerable number, not
distinctly recollected. Since then they have
been doing well, and are now in good health.
