Valedictory.—lt is now three years or more
since somehow or other, we became the " Local"
Editor of Tus PILOT. We did nut accept the posi
tion for any pecuniary reward nor from any notion
of becoming known to the literary world ; but out of
friendship for the Publisher and for the interests of
the community we have done what we have done.
For the past year we have not been able to pay so
much attention to the paper as we desired ; and for
some time we have bad to rely in a considerable
degree upon the assistance of a few gentlemen
whom it would give us pleasure to mention. We
'know that their efforts have been more accept
able to our readers than anything we could have
written We owe them a debt of gratitude we
know not how to repay.
Our cotemporaries have been very kind and cle
ver towards us, and we trust they may live to flour
ish the quill for many a day.
Although it may be soon suspended, we trust.
Tee Pttux may not be allowed to die. We hope
some one may take it up, and thattho tide of pros
perity may set in towards it, and that it may yet
live and flourish in a united and happy country.
While we have not considered it within our pro
-eince to discuss at large political questions, yet we
have by our humble efforts endeavored to support
the cause of our country, and believe we have never
written anything to discourage any loyal reader.—
We do most earnestly hope)nd pray that the rebel
lion may soon be suppressed, and that the Govern
ment of the United States may be established
throughout the entire length and bfeadth of the
land and bold that any and every means necessary
to accomplish this end ought to be used. The
Flag of our Union Forever."
blistakes we have made. and hcpe they may be
forgotten If we have offended any candid, rea
sonable person, we declure that it has been unin
tentional on our part.
We regret exceedingly to part. from Tax Pit.or
for although our time was chiefly taken up wit!
other business, still the preparation of our " items'
was more a pleasure than a task.
Hoping That our place may be filled by some
more able person, we bid adieu!

Mooting for Raising Recruits.—A meet
ing of the citizens was held in the S. W. School
House on last Thursday evening, to take measures
to fill the quota of the Borough under the late call
for 600,000 men. Rev. T. G. APPI,II presided, and
J. M. Timm, Esq., was chosen . secretary. After
some discussion a committee was chosen to assess
on those subject to military duty contributions cor
responding the ability of the .several
and the deficit to assess on the property of the town.
This is a voluntary undertaking, similar in the main
to that adopted last winter. If it is possible 'to
raise a sufficient sum in this way, and property
holders refuse to comply with the request of the
committee, the sum will have to be raised by taxa
tion.. The 'money must and be got' in sonic

It will be seen from the aboee i bat' seven men
were yet needed, and that fourteen names were
draWn, being 100 per cent. additional allowed by
late regulations. The deficiency after the June
draft was twenty-six, but a oredit for nineteen men
was obtained by the exertions of the volunteer
committee of the township, which reduced it to
seven, as given above.
Military.—Under the call of Maj.-Gen. Count'
for " one thousand mounted men" for.otte hundred
days, the young men of this place set about re
oruitieg a company, and in two or three days about
$ hundred recruits were obtained, but just'at this
moment it was ascertained that the men would have
to furnish their own horses. This put a damper on
the recruiting business, and we fear it will fall
through. If the horses were furnished by the
Government a splendid company could be mounted
here. We hope an arrangement of this kind might
Cigars.—We notice that the new Excise law re
quires all persons making cigars to obtain a permi
to manufacture, and no one is allowed to work a
bis trade without a licence.
Persons manufacturing cigars without a permit
will he liable to a fine of five dollars per day, while
so manufacturing, or imprisonment. Cigar manu
facturers are also required to keep a correct account
of the number made. This will make rather
cheap 1) smoking.
Stable Look.—Jos. SNIVBLY, Jr., of Antrim
township, and Jamas W 1411Ltsa, of Waynesboro',
have obtained 'a Patent for a. new stable lock: It is
simple in construction, but most ingeniously ar
raigned and very strong, so that we think it im
possible to te opened by thieves. A key is wade
for each lock, and no key will open more than one
lock. Every stable door should be fastened with
one of these looks.
SEVERAL of our young men finding that horses
could not be got for 100 days' cavalry company have
gone away and joined other companies. By-the
way, it seems a little singular that the Department
could not furnish horses to a Greencastle company,
organised and reported a week ago, while the thing,
we understand, is to be done for another company
now being raised at Chambersburg.
The Call.—The Preetident has called for 500, -
000 men. If ,not • enliated before ; the sth day of
September then 11 draft , shall be made .on that day
to fill the deficiency. ==Ales to -be drafted for one

SUBSTITCTER can be put in before the draft. Be
careful to get those over or under ago or aliens.—
Those who put in substitutes of this character will
be exempt for as long a period as the substitute
enlisted for, whether one, two or three years.—
Those who can get substitutes now ought to do it.
PERSONS in need of good fresh Lime, would do
well to call upon Mr. BENJAmtw BERT, at his kiln
on South Street. Ile will always have on hand a
good supply, and farmers and others can be sup
plied upon short notice and easy terms. BEN is a
good fellow. Give him a call.

cus will exhibit here on the 29th of July. This
company is composed of the sons of the finest per
formers in the country, and an unequaled collec
tion of trained horses and educated mules. All
persons should attend.
Passed Through.—Maj.-Gen. FRANK Stun .
passed through this place in the morning train of
cars on last Monday, ou his way to Harrisburg.—
Quite a crowd collected around the cars to get a
glimpse of the old war horse.
Now that the rebel raid is over I am prepared to
sell Boots and Shoes cheap.
JOHN GISTZ has on hand an excellent stock of
Boots and. Shoes, which he has been selling at short
profits. Examine his stock.

IT S. 10-40 BONDS.—These Bonds are is
sued under the Act of Congress of March
1864, which provides that all Bonds 1,031.10.1 under
this Act shall be EXEMPT FROM TAXATION by
or under any state or municipal authority. Sub
scriptions to these Bonds are received in United

TO BE REDEEMED IN COIN, at the pleasure of
the Government, at any period not less than ten nor

dred dollars annually and on all other Bonds semi
annually. The interest is payable on the first days
of March and September in each year.
Subscrib . ers will receive either Registered or Cou
pon Bonds, as they may prefer. Registered Bonds
are recorded on the books of the O. S. Treasurer,
and can be transferred only on the owner's order.
Coupon Bonds are payable to hearer, and are more

various parts of the country.
At the present rate of premium on gold they pay
OVER EIGHT PER CENT. INTEREST
in currency, and are of equal convenience as a per
manent or temporary investment.
It is believed that no securities offer so great in
ducements to lenders as the various descriptions of
U. S. Bonds. In all other forms of indebtedness,
the faith or ability of private parties or stook corn
paies or separate communities only is pledged for
payment, whilP for the debts of the United States
the whole property of the country is holden to se
cure the payment of both principal and interest in
These Bonds may be subscribed for in sums from
$5O up to any magnitude, on the same terms, and
are thus made equally available to the smallest
lender and the largest capitalist. They can be con
verted into money at any moment, and the holder
will have the benefit of the interest.
It may be useful to state in this connection tha4
he total Funded Debt of the United States on wbicl
interest is payable in gold, on the 3d day of March,
1864. was $768,976,000. The interest on this debt
far the coming fiscal year will be $.15.987,126,
while the customs revenue in geld far the current
fiscal year. ending June 30th, 1864, has been so far
at the rate of over $100,000,000 per annum.
It will be seen that, even the present gold reven
ues of the Government are largely in excess of the
wants of the Treasury for the payment of gold in
terest, while the recent increase of the tariff will
doubtless raise the annual receipts from cIIBI.OIIIS
on the same amount of importations, to $150,000,-
000 per annum.

TO ALL ;WANTING FARMS.
Novr Settlement of Vineland.
A EMEDY FOR HARD TIMES.
A Rare 0 .1 ", !unity in the Bait Market, and Most De
lightfull'a Healthful climate in the Union. Only
thirty in A South of Philadelphia. on a Railroad;
being a Rich, Heavy Soil, and Highly Productive
Wheat Land; Amongst the Best in the Garden State
of New Jersey.
It consists of 20,000 acres' of GOOD land, diviled
into Farms of different sizes to suit the purchaser—
FROM 20 ACRES AND UPWARDS—and is sold at the rate
of from $l5 to $2O per acre for the farm land, pig
able one-fourth cash, and the balance by quarter
yearly installments, with legal interest, within the
term of four years. . _
The Soil is, in great part, a Rich Clay Loam, suit
able for Wheat, Grass and Potatoes—also a dark and
rich sandy loam, suitable for corn, sweet-potatoes,
tobacco, all kinds of vegetables and root crops, and
the finest varieties of fruit, such as Grapes, Pears,
Peaches, Apricots, Nectarines, Blackberries, Melons
and other fruits, beet adapted to the Philadelphia
and New York Markets. In respect to the soil a►d
crops there can he no mistake, as visitors can exam.
ine both, and none are expected to buy before so do
ing, and finding these statements correct—under
these circumstances, unless these statements were
correct, there would be no use in their being made.
It is considered the best Fruit soil in the Union.
[See Reports J Solon Itobinson, Esq., of the
New York Tribune, and the well-known agriculturist,
William Parry, of Cinnaminson, New Jersey, which
will be furnished inquirers.]
The Market.---By looking over a map the reader
will perceive that it enjoys the lest market in the Un
ion, and has direct communioation with New York
and Philadelphia twice a day, sing only thirty-two
miles from the latter. Produce t this market brings
double the price that it does in locations distant
from the cities. In this location it can be put into
market. the same morning it is gathered, and for
what the farmer sells he gets the highest price:
whilst groceries and other articles lie purchases he
gets at. the lowest. price. In the West, what he sells
brings him a pittance, but for what. he buys he pays
two prices. In locating here the settler has many
other advantages. Ile is within a few hours, by
railroad, of all the great cities of New England and
the Middle States. lie is near his old friends and
associations. lie .has school for his children, di
vine service, and all the advantages of civilization,
and he is near a large city.
The Climate is delightful ; the winters being sa
lubrious and open, whilst the summers are no warm
er than in the North. The location is upon the
line of latitude with northern Virginia.
Persons Wanting a change of Climate for Health,
would be much benefitted in Vineland. The mild
ness of the climate and its bracing influence, makes
it excellent for all pulmonary affections, dyspepsia or
general debility. Visitors will notice a difference in
a few days. i Chills and fevers are unknown.
Conveniences at Hand.—Building matorial is plen
ty. Fish and oysters are plenty and cheap.
Visitors must expect, however, to see a new place.
Why the Property has not been Settled Before 7
This question the reader naturally asks. It is be
cause it has been held in large tracts by families not
disposed to sell, and being without railroad facilities
they had few inducements. The Railroad has just.
been opened through the property this season, for
the first time.
Visitors nre shown over the land in a carriage,
free of expense, and afforded time and opportunity
for thorough investigation. Those who come with
a view to settle, should bring money to secure their
purchases, as locations are not held upon refusal.
The Safest thing in Hard Times, where people
have been thrown out of employment or business.
and possess some little means or small incomes, is to
start themselves a home. They can buy a piece of
land at a small price, and earn more than wa ls es in
improving it, and when it is done it is a certain in
dependence and no Kies. A few acres in fruit. t rees
will insure a comfortaSle living. The laud is put
down to hard-times. and nll improvements can he
made at. a cheaper rate than moet'any other time.
The whole tract., with six miles front on the rail
road, is being laid out with fine and spacious aven
ues, with town in the centre—five acre lots in the
town sell at: from $l5O to $200: two and a-half acre
lots, at from $BO to $l2O, and town lots 50 feet front
by 110 feet deep, at sloo—payable one-half cash
and tae balance within a year. It is only upon
farms of twenty acres, or more, that four years'
time is given.
To Manufacturers, the town Affords a fine opening
for the Shoe manufacturing business, and other ar
ticles, being near Philadelphia, and the surrounding
