that the protracted rainy weather will
materially affect the crops, especially the
Wheat. It is to be hoped, however,, that
these gloomy forebodings will shortly
be dispelled by clear, temperate weather.
ILLNESS. —WC, regret to announce that
our fellow townsman, W. D..Sponsler,
of the enterprising firm of Strohm &
Sponslor, is prostrated with sickness,
having had, within the past few days,
several severe hemorrhages. We sin
cerely hope he may speedily recover.
Too FAST.—The freight trains going ,
west run through town at entirely too
fast a rate of spend, thereby endangering
the lives of our citizens. The schedule,
we think, limits the passage of trains
through the borough to four wiles per
HEAVY THUNDER.—Our town was vis
ited, on Friday evening last, by a terrible
rain storm, accompanied with heavy
thinider and vivid lightning. The light
ning struck one of the rods attached to
the Emory Chapel, 'on - West street, with
mit doing any serious damage,' excepting
the knocking off of a few tricks.
GRADUATED.-Our young townsman,
Samuel L. Graham, son of the Hon. J.
11. Graham, paid us a visit the other
day. He is ono of a class of sixty-eight
graduates of the Naval Academy, at An
napolis, the examination,of whom closed
on the fourth instant. We understand
Mr. G. passed a very creditable exami
nation, and is now prepared for active
naval service. He intends remaining at
home about three months.'
ANOTHER INDIERSION.—On Sunday
afternoon last, immediately after the
morning service in the Bethel church,
the Rev. J. Hunter, with six of his newly
made converts, proccedesi. to the Letort
Spring at th'e foot of Pomfret street, for
the purpose of 'attending - to—tne-solemn

it is still persisted in. We saw Young

WE hear it rumored, hut we do not
know whether the information is official
o• not, that the Cumberland Valley Rail
road company contemplate putting a now
train on the road during the present
yammer. This train will bo known as
the' ‘: Fast Lino," stopping only at prin.
oipal stations, and to mate the proposed
trip from Hagerstown to Harrisburg in
the space of two hours. This would, no
doubt, be quite a feature in the manage

doubtless bePsource &-great profit and
revenue to the company.
INcENnlA9tism,- 7 0n Thursday night of
last week, some malicious - villain made an
attempt to burn the large two-story, brick
building on Pomfret ;greet, the property
of Daniel Eck!)ls. It is occupied by two

front door had boon left unfastened, and

Seek a better way, and with this shining
motto, -deep in-writ in its corner-stone,
has the noble temple of Protestantism
arisen—liberal in its.spirit it has kept
pace with the times, and adapting itself
to our wants, has grown great in beauty
whilst Romanism persecuting reform
ers, and with a short-sighted policy fail
ing to recognize existing things, has lost
her pristine splendor. Innovators should
not be too Sharply rebuked, even though
they be bold enough to present innova
tions in religion—their method may be
good, and let us remember this fact, that
Christians, a few centuries ago, thought
not as Christians now, and that we now
look back on those brave men who dared
uproot established ['orb's, and 01;1'1141mm
for our advancement to-day. Isrotions
that we now hold, in after centuries,
will be deemed antiquated and barbar
ian—they must he so deemed, for as in
eternal nature nothing can mature, save
by the destruction of the existence of
other things; so in the mental world,
there has been no great advatice, no edi
fice of truth upreared, save by the de;
struction of false systems, and the ab
sorption of their elements into better
ones. Such is the order of dissolution ;
growth and life can only be by death,
and as the past it has been, so in the
future it must be. Syster';'is must rise
and fall, creeds 'be born and perish, and
the car of 'progress still- move .on, amid
the everlasting lullaby of destruction
and re-production. Then let us have
faith, aye, let us have faith in ourselves
though our limbs be 110111 b with toiling';
and our backs be galled with bearing,
yet well do we know that every triumph
over unknown truth adds another step to
the well-wrought path that leads to the
perfect. Then, wherefore, be self satis
fied, and say that what we know is -true,
when so much that has heretofore been
accepted ha's ,proved false. Behind us
lies six thousand
. years- of lnruian con
quest.; before us - mighty, illimitable,
fields for research through which art has
yet to make its way. Yet whether we
do scrutinize nature, analyze conscious
ness, or view in their origins the faiths
of mankind,' the path to, the true, the
path to the ideal, lies plainly marked
out, so that he who runs may read.
Cast as we now are, on a mighty sea of
probabilities, let us not hesitate to. set'
aside intolerance, and thus to spread our
breezes of advancement. May we ever

Macaulay has said " it is a very singular
fret, that while society is • constantly
moving forward with eager speed, it
should be constantly looking backward
with bitter regret." It is no less singu
lar that in this nineteenth centuryvith
all - its boasted progress, the century of
splendid triumphs, dyer time and space,
and the inertia of matte r , we must still
look back to the' 'early centuries; and 'to
idolatrous nations for the most perfect

arts. He who would : learn the power of
impassioned oratory, cannot do better
than to study his Cicero and Demosthe

This is an ago of progress. The little

speak about it ; and' well they may, for
language fails to paint a true picture of
'the progress of the nineteenth century.
Could Galileo witness progress since his
day, he might well say "Still it moves."
Yet not only the earth moves, but the
world of thought moves, ever onward .
and upward, to bolder facts, and broader
theories. Sometimes urged on by a Co

row-minded bigots, or a Luther breaking
down the charmed defences Of sacerdotal
corruption, or -a Newton_ demonstrating
the law of gravitation. lint the age of

A. M., proceeded to Boiling Springs on
Friday last, to assist in the dedication of
the American Mechanics' Hall of that
place. The rain had made the roads in,
such a condition as to prevent the sister

to postpone the dedication until some
time after harvest. The two Councils

and will' soon be ready to sot.. The tall
shaft, appropriately surmounted, is yet
to be 'put in place, to complete the de
sign. Regarding the unfiniO4;st'rue
ture as exhibiting fine taste , and mechan
ical skill, the Building Confinittee is
pleased: to learn that it also', filly', pseets
the expectations of the pithfie, and we
may be assured that when,.completed,
• our &Am' Monument will Stand la
stately and beautiful work of art, of
which the architect and the community
may alike feel proud. '
The &Sign of the Monument was fur
nished by Mr. Richard Owen, the well
known marble-worker of our town, and
in giving preference to his plan over
others that were' offered, aiid also con
tracting with him for the eZectitiOn of ,-the
work, it is no small source of gratifica
tion that his architectural taste 'find
workmanship have fully vindicated the
judgment of the committee in making
the • selection. It may seem to many,
who have no knowledge of the eircum-,
Stances, that Morellos been unnecessary
delay in prosecuting the work, but with
out entering into loegthy explanatory
details,. the public may be'assured that
there has been no lack of energy. on the
part of the contractor, or any other de-'
lay which' could have been avoided.
The erection of the'Monument is now
at stand, for want of funds, and it
remainsto be seen whether those who
have not yet contribilted will come
promptly forward and supply their
share. Some $3,000 has swfar been
pended, and itwill require not less than
$2,000 more to fully complete the 'work.
The building of this Monument is, and
,ought to be "a labor of love," on the
part of the 'Community. The Associa-'
Lion has no paid agents to go out and
solicit subscriptions. Every one who
desires to honor the memory and ser
vices of the brave men whose names ap
pear on the Moniurient; should come for
ward without any personitl solicita:tiou„
and oiler his subscription. Our treas
urer is A. 1, Sponsler, esq., who will
gladly .receive all subscriptions: With
the exception of $l,OOO, the proceeds of
the fah; of 18(10, the motley expended
has'bdt4ltullished by a comp:r•atively
few persofis, in sums ranging, from $1
to $l5O each—with one most
subscription of $5OO. Many of the sub
scribers are now duplicating their
nal contributions of last .yeifr. Every
person should participate in this noble
work, especially all who sympathize
with the object. We trust none will
hold back: Think fur a moment of the
blessings _secured to us by the sacrifice
of these patriotic men, and the small
amount it will require from each of us to
build their Monument.. .
- It is the intention of the .AssoCiation,
upon the ,completion of the work, to .
publish a book - of - transactions_ of - the
ASsociatiori, in Which the name of each
contributor willappear. Are there any
who are Willing to ,have their names
omitted? If so, we believe they will
keenly regret it hereafter.

"Since a majority of our readers may
not be acquainted with these interesting
ceremonies wo would briefly describe
them: The River :Brethren have no
meeting horses, they being opposed to
them. All their meetings are held in
dwelling houses or • barns ; lovereasts
sometimes in groves or orchards, or the
evening exercises in the ripen air., The
first day Is passed by members, male and .
female, telling their religious experi
ences, and by baptizing newraembers,
if there are any applicants. After sup
'per they proceed to the barn, or place of
meeting, and arc seated on long benches,
two rows' fachag•each other, males and
femaleS separately; baring their feet;,
while several others bring in tubs, water
and towels or white aprons. One member
pours water into a tub and washes the
feet of those that are seated on the
lynches, while another ties around his or,
her waist a towel and wipes the washed
feet. During the propitiation one or
more of the preachers make remarks on
the subject, and while the ceremony is'
beieg performed almost constant singing
is going on. During 'the washing and
wiping, remarks are passing between, the
parties ministering and the one minis- .
.tered to, in reference to the signification
or bearing of the ceremony. Each mem
ber is dismissed by those that wash and
wipe, with "hand and kiss." Previous
to the breaking of bread, which follows
immediately after feet-washing, the
Members rise and form a'"lnuid of union"
by hand and kiss, beginning at one end
of the table and .continuing all around
it. The breaking of bread is commenced
by the ministering preacher taking some
of it into his hands, and after praying,
breaking - il. pieeeciff one of the bars, and
saying while handing it to the member
nearest by, " Dear brother (or sister)
bread that we break is the l communion
of the tinily of iesus Christ." lie then
hands the broken bait to that member,
