The pilot. (Greencastle, Pa.) 1860-1866, July 26, 1864, Image 3
pASSING EVENTS, &C 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! aItEIINCASTI:E, July 20. 1864 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 way. LIST of men drafted July 19th, for Antrim town ship to fill the deficiency for former draft. Number of men wanted, 7. Number drawn, 14 Washington Koontz. Charles Robison, (col.) James Richeson, (ool io l Levi Powell, Geu. W. Barnhart, (col.) Timothy Anderson, (col. Isaac N. Rule, Arthur Newman, John Shraler, Jeremiah Shook, • Samuel Crider, Jasper Hieke. John Burns, John Bush, (of Abram) 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 be effected. 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 year. - Shall Antrim and the Borough, wait for the draf The quotas of both can caube filled by volunteers, those most interested arouse themselves. Krsnet, & BRO. have a fresh 'and excellent stock of hoots and Shoes on hind. 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. Fun.,—Mr. M. J. Ronixsoxs' Metropolitan Cir 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.

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 States notes or notes of National Banks. They are TO BE REDEEMED IN COIN, at the pleasure of the Government, at any period not less than ten nor more than forty; years from their date, and until their redemption FIVE PER CENT. INTEREST WILL BE PAID IN COIN; on Bonds of not over one hun 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 j convenient for commercial uses. Subscribein to this loan will have the option of having their Bonds draw interest from March Ist, by paying the accrued interest in coin—(or in Uni ted States.notes, or the notes of National ranks. adding fifty per cent. for premium,) or receive them drawing interest from the date of subscription and ieposit. As these Bonds are' Exempt from, State or Municipal Taxation, their value ie increased from one to three per cent. per annum, according to the rate of tax levies in 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 ELI 3 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. PROPRIETOR It may be useful to state in this connection tha4 he total Funded Debt of the United States on wbicl 11A.NAGIsa 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. Instructions to the National Bunks acting as loan agents were not issued from the United States Treasury until March 25, but in the first three weeks sf Aprilthe subscriptions averaged more than TEN MILLIONS 'A WEEK. Subscriptions will he received by the First National Bank of Philadelphia, Pa. Second National Bank of Philadelphin,;Pa. Third National Bank of Philadelphia, Pa.

A EMEDY FOR HARD TIMES. y 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 country has a large population, which affords a good market. This settlement, in the course of several years, will be one of the most beautiful places in the coun try. and most agreeable for a residence. It. is intended to make it a Vine and Fruit grow ing country, as this culture is the most profitable and the best adapted to the market.. Every advan tage and convenience for settlers will be introduced which will insure the prosperty of the place. The hard times throughout the country will be an advan tage to the settlement, as it compels people to resort to agriculture for a living.
