place should be appreciated.

musical talent and ability. He performs \

BUTLER TOWN is pleasantly situated :
on the North bank of Connoquenessing j
creek, in a bend thereof, on an eminence j
that commands an extensive and pictur- j
esque view of the surrounding conn |
and is thirty-three m : VS via the Plank- 1
road North of Pittsburgh. The town con
tains the usual county buildings ; a good j
and substantial brick and stone Court- :
House, erected in 1853 ; the Jail is built j
of stone, and. as far as the name is eon- j
corned, does very well; but past occur- :
renees show that it is not very well calcu- j
lated to hold any one who has a strong in- !
elination to escape from " durance vile." i
The town was laid out in A. I>. 1800. and j
was incorporated as a borough Feb. 26. j
1817. Population, in 1830, 580; in
1840, 861. and in 1860 it contained over '
1.300. Within the limits of the town j
there arc seven churches, one Academy, |
the Witherspoon Institute, and two school- j
houses. The latter cannot be spoken very
highly of. Their architecture and furni- |
turc are not such as they should lie. In
our humble opinion there is nothing that
can be called attractive either in the arch
itecture or furniture of these buildings;
and it is very self-evident to the most su
perficial observer that there is nothing
about the exterior, or grounds connected
with these buildings, of an attractive na
ture or character; but we will not dwell
on this matter at present.
The town is well supplied with hotels;
of these there are six. There arc at pres
ent ten eating-houses, or restaurants, with
a very fair prospect of at least one more.
We have eight dry-goods and grocery
stores, three jewelry establishments, two
drug-stores, one book and variety store,
nine shoe-shops doing a flourishing busi
ness in protecting the toles of the people ;
six blacksmith shops—those engaged in |
this trade should remember to " strike |
while the iron is hot;" —three wagon and
carriage shops, two plow shops, five cabi
net shops, three saddle and harness shops,
three printing offices, one clothing store,
four tailor shops and two tanneries. Just j
outside the borough limits there are two I
machine shops, a woollen fictory and two J
large grist-mills.
The town does not improve very rapid
ly ; in explanation of which many reasons
might be assigned, but we will not enu
merate at present, as we may have occasion |
t j refer to these matters more at length on
some future occasion. During the past
season, the Presbyterian congregation of
this place have completed a very fine buil
ding on the site formerly occupied by the
old church. This new place of worship j
is very elegantly and tastefully furnished.
The new brick dwelling house of ('has.
M'Candloss, Esq., situated on the S. W.
corner of the Diamond, when fully com
pleted, will be a decided improvement in
the architecture of the place, and will re
flect credit on the owner and the archi
tects—Messrs. S. G. Purvis & Son. In
this connection we would also mention the
new, large and fine brick building, on
Main street, erected by William Vogcley,
«nd now occupied by him as a hotel. It
is a very fine building, and one that does
credit to the owner.
During the past fall, a very extensive
and substantial improvement was made in
the condition of Main Street. It was very
much needed; and, while it is commend
able and praiseworthy to keep the main
street in good condition, would it not be
well to bestow a little more labor on the
back and cross streets, and also the alleys ?
Of course wo do not wish to be under
stood as dictating to the worthy authori
ties who have the supervision and control
of these matters, but merely as suggesting
the propriety of distributing the work and
repairs equitably in the different parts of!
our borough. The mall, or board wjilk.
I Igading to the Cemetery. on tlic North of
the borough, which was made during the
last season, was very much needed, and is
highly appreciated, especially by those
who, from locality and business, frequent
the same.
Of (he professions, there arc eight min
isters, four doctors, two dentists, 1 profes
sor, four teachers, three justices of the
peace, and only seventeen lawyers. We
have an industrious population ; with but
few, if any. who can be called loafer* or j
idlert. All are engaged in some useful ;
calling or occupation; each is, in his par
ticular sphere, endeavoring to make an
honest living.
Evening I»arly.
Do NOT FAIL to attend the evening par
ty at the LOWKY HOUSE on New Years
live. Thcobjectis one which commends
itself to every patriot, and we hope that j
there will be a general attendance; who j
will not give for the purpose of relieving j
the wants of the soldier's family? Cer
tainly there are none but what will be ca
' ger to contribute towards so laudable an
| object, as the relief of the wives and chil
j dren of our brave soldiers who have per
iled their lives in defence t>f oinJ|r itcrn-

BROKE JAIL.—On Wednesday evening
; of last week, Dr. P. Dockaleer, better j
! known as the French Doctor, cbntrived,!
during the absence of the Jailor—Capt. j
Brackenridgc—to effect his e-eape from
| u durance vile." By watching his oppor- !
j tunity he managed to pass out at the door j
I while one of the females of the Jailor's
household was replenishing his cell or
| room with fuel. Notice was immediately
L-iven to Sheriff Scott, who, in company
with his son, Columbus, gave chase; and
as it was snowing at the time, they wore
enabled to geton the track of the fugitive,
who had taken the road leading from But
ler to Harmony. After a smart chase of
an hour or two through the woods and
fields—to which he had taken—they suc
ceeded in rc-capturing and bringing him
back to his old quarters, where lie is now
confined to serve out the remainder of
bis apprenticeship and sentence given him

following letterfrom WILLIAM
HAZLF.TT to his father, has been handed
to us for publication. Mr, llazlett has
four sons in the army of the Union, and
was himself, a member of Capt. Jas G.
Campbell's Militia company, that went
from our county at the time that Leo and
his rebel horde made their first laid into
'■My Maryland."
VIRGINIA, Dec. 11, 1863. }
I received your letter
safe at hand, and was very glad to hear
from you, ami to hear that you were well.
lam well at present. We have just re
turned from over the Rapidan river ; we
had some very smart skirmishing for three
days, when Lee, tho Confederate com
mander. found an almost impregnable po
sition, on high ground, suited for all his
artillery, and a deep run or stream, called
Mine River, between us and him. where
lie fortified himself, where he appeared
sure of a victory. But Gen. Meade, our
commander, was not to be fooled, he just
fell back to his old position : lie merely
n-cnt over to let old Lec see, that if he
sent reinforcements to Bragg, in the South
West, he might expect to get well whip
ped by the operation." We have very cold
weather, and our Infantry suffered con
siderably from the cold and rain, while ly
ing (jx> the cold, wet ground without fires,
in the battle line; but now we are all pret
ty snugly fixed, in the woods, with good
camp fires, although we have got no or
ders to prepare winter quarters. The ar
my is now taking things very easy, enjoy
ing themselves on soft bread aud beef
steak. I think we will do no more this
winter, without the rebels actually come to
visit us in our camp. I think in the
spring, with the three hundred thousand
men of reinforcements, we will be, able to
get hold'of the rebel capitol. The rebels
; arc loosing heart, and begin to weep a lit
{ tie. They are beginning to see the folly
lof their ways. They have now lost the
| whole of Tennessee, where their main
supplies for their arm}' came from, and as
time flies on, their cause looks more hope
less and cloudy; while our Army and Na
vy gets stronger and braver. The leaders
of the rebellion have ruined their coun
try. and they know it, for the desolation it
has caused is awful. But the)' still stick
to it; they must Ight till tho last man;
but they had better cover their heads with
sack-cloth and ashes, and repent of their
folly, and confess their error, and not mur
der and destroy the balance of their un
fortunate population. The charges against
the leaders of this rebellion, and the pun
ishment which will be meted out to them,
wll be hard indeed. But [ hopo and trust
that peace and prosperity will soon be in
every homestead both North and South.
Give my best respects to all enquiring
friends and acquaintances.
From your affectionate son.
DON'T SWEAR.—Profanity is one
of the most offensive and disgusting
habits to which unredeemed humanity
is given. To say nothing ofitssinfu
ness, (which every one of course un
derstands) profane swearing is a vile
vulgar, low-bred habit, from the indul
gence of which a proper self respect
should restrain a man, even if he has
no regardfor the dictates of religion.
It is a habit too which increases with
•fearful rapidity when once given way
to; and we have known instances
where men who were once highly res
pectable, but who unfortunately con
tracted this habit, have sunk so low as
to use profane language in their own
families, and even to 6wear at thoir
wives and children.

A friend has just sent a Thanksgiving
■Sermon preached by the said Reverend
Brooks, under the title at the head of
this article. His text is the 14th and
l<)th verses of the l(sth chapter of Jere
miah. \\ e append a few sentences as
specimen bricks—on
of the ruin that was to come upon us here
at homo, in the derangement of labor, iu
j the scarceness of supplies, iu the stop
page of business, in the insccur™ of
property. The war is almost three years
old, and industry was never richer, homes
were never happier, trade never paid so
well, harvests never crowded the bursting
barns more fully than iu the abundant
prosperity of this battle-autumn. What
shall we do ? Is it the part of earnest
men just to come up to our churches and
thank God for the corn-field and the busy
stores, and say nothing about the war, un
der whose red glare the. sickle does its
peaceful battle with the grain, and the
qui'ck dollars pile themselves upon your
desk. I think not. I think no grati
tude is loyal or reasonable that does not
carry the earnestness and solemnity of
all our present life into every thank -giv
ing that it has to pay.
On page 11, he says:
Tt seems to mo every dollar made in
these war times ought to he sacred. I
should think every man who is staying at
home and making a fortune now, would
want to take at least one poor man who has
been to the war and been disabled; and,
counting him his substitute;*provide for
him and his for life. A man who is coin
ing money out of his country's agony, and
keeping it to spetul upon himself, must
feel so like a very Gehazi. "Is it a time
to receive money and to receive garments,
and olivcyards, and vineyards, and sheep,
and oxen When those whose duty to
be there is no more than ours, are putting
every comfort by and standing between us
and traitors, camping in the wretched
ness of the cold open corn field, fighting
the front, ranks of our thinned armies, suf
fering in the solitude of far-ofl' hospitals,
starving in that loathsome prison which is
going to make Southern ci\iiization the
everlasting by-word of the nineteenth cen
tury —what right fcivo wo to occupy the
prosperity, under whose groaning portals
wo enter in with thanks to-day, save as the
guardian holds his solemn trust, sacred
from common use, ready to answer to the
last demand of those for whom he holds it,
to whom it all belongs.
On pages 23,21 and 25, he thus sketch
es his views of Bishop Hopkin's argu
ment on slavery. The fifty-five Demo
cratic members of Congress who voted for
the Bishop for Chaplain must have esti
mated it more highly than didJMr. B. :
1 should do great injustice to ourselves
and to the day, if it did not commemorate
another great re-occupation of this past
year, whereby not only the people but the
church has entered in and repossessed the
old land that the Lord gave to her fathers.
Christianity, I believe, will never cease to
sorrow that the Church of Christ was led
and not leading in the crusade against hu
man slavery in the United States. The
future historian of the Church will look
back and wonder at the sight he sees.—
j Year after year the Church stood back,
while they who fought the battle went out
from her, and the whole movement against
slavery became not only unehurchly but
openly infidel, disowning all interest in
every presentation of that Christianity of
whose spirit and operation it was never
theless itself the legitimate result. The
child Philanthropy not merely deserted its
mother Religion, but disowned her. But
like many another lost child in the world's
moral history, its inherited ks,
the brow and eyes it took from her, would
keep speaking out its parentage in its own
despite. If in thisyearthe recreant moth
er has at all. come out and claimed her
child; if in this year the Christian Church
has taken among us an irrevocable position
of his hostility to human slavery in every
shape, let us thank the 1 rejoice in
every symptom tending that way I rejoice
in this last struggle whereby it is fighting
its way into its dishonored grave, of that
old miserable creature, the most foolish of
all follies, if it had not been the most im
pious of all impieties, which has been
dignified so many years with the name of
"The Bible Argument for Slavery." I
cannot tell you the half of my joy—some
of you will understand it by your own—
when in this most conservative of all con
servatisms, the Episcopal Church, the ro :
assert ion of a Bishop of this tame old so
called Bible Argument for Slavery, stirred
the ministry of this diocese to an utterance
; which no man can mistake, of utter enmi
ty to slavery and whatever has anything to
do with it. It is of very little importance
in the world ; it is of very little importance
in the land; but it is of very great import
ance in the Episcopal Church, that, for
the first time in her history, she has get
herself flatly, fairly, unmistakbly against
the sin of the nation. As name after name
added to that protest; as the assent came
in so unanimously from every direction—
from the mission chapels in the hills, from
the cathedral-churches in the city, from
the seats of our schools and our seminary,
and above all, thank God, from the honor
i ed dignity of the Bishop's chair, made
| dear love for him, who we pray may long
sit in it to do true things like this —it
; i seemed to me as if every new assent wiped

In "pursuance of his
appointment,'* he left Butler, and during the "rainy sea
son," was husilv engaged. toiling, taxing every point of tire
compass, in order to accomplish the object of bis mission.
He has the satisfaction of reporting himself once moro at
home, accompanied with some of the tallest specimens of
articles in his line of business, that was ever concentrated
at any point in Butler countv, of any where else iu this
decidedly great country. All he asks in return. «»f hi«
fellow citizens, for his arduous labors, is simply that they
will glvr him a call, and examine for themselves, his fine
stock of
Tobaoeo, Snuff and Cigara.
Though republics are generally ungrateful, and the peo
ple, though ••aovereipns.' are not alwnvs exactly in the
right track, yet he feels a kind of confidence in them that
they will not he«itate to pronounce judgment in his fkvor,
when they shall have "investigated" hi" stock. In order
to make an intelligent report. It will be nectary for all
interested in the"n«e and abuse" of Tobacco. in sit its va

begs leave to be discharged from further consideration of
