and the Union citizens generally assembled
on the Diamond a little after 11 9'dock, and
marched to the grove of Mr. Gm. BESORE,
near town, preceded by the Fayetteville
and W. H. BROTTIERrON acting as marshals,
where a stand had been erecteirAMd seats
' prepared for the ladies..._4fter an appropri
ate prayer by the Be*. Mr. SAVIDOE, of the
M. E. Church, the Declaration' of rndepcn-
deuce was read by A. 31. TRINI,IEIi i Esq.,
which was followed by a stirring and patriot
ic address from Prof. W. T. BARN/TS. The
address •of Mr. B. was eloquent and appro
priate for the times, and elicited raptures of
applause. At the conclusion of his remarks
an adjournment for a couple of hours was
agreed upon, some returning to town, brit
the majority remaining to take their dinners
in the grove, an abundance of provision hav
ing-been-provided for the occasion.
Dinner over, M. S. NEwcommt, Esq., of
this vicinity, entertained the audience for
over half an hour in an address equally ap
propriate to the times and the day celebrated.
Ills remarks although entirely extempore,
breathed the true spirit of patriotism, Wild were
rapturously applauded. If there were any
Rebel sympathisers present they must have
felt keenly the force of his remarks. Mr.
tress cone u es , t e ' er. Mr. SA)
vinoE was called for and responded in a
short but excellent address, after which the
parties formed in proccession and returned
to town, and thus ended the celebration, the
proceedings all passing off pleasantly, end
without any interruption.
We must add in conclusion that the
Band Cottteted very largely to
the interest of the occasion. The part per
formed by them was highly creditable.
Much larger towns than Fayetteville might
be justly proud of such a band of musicians.
The Exhiliiiiinz.—The second Exhibition

On Friday evening the Rev. Mr. SAVIDGE
presided and conducted the exercises, after
an appropriate prayer, in his usual dignified,,
manner. The English Salutatory wasAde

with orders to recruit volunteers for the war.
Mr. W. was one'of the the first ,i n in the
county to. volunteer in defence of the Capiz

harvest.—The farmers in this section are
now engaged in harvesting the wheat crop.
We understand the grain is in bad condition
for reaping, about one third of it having
been knocked down by the heavy rains which
we had several weeks since, but notwithstan
ding this is the case, it is said to be well fil
led. The yield of wheat in Washington and
Quincy townships, the present season, wil
we think we can safely assert, exceed it
quantity that of any season for many years. ,
This we believe is true of the county gen
The War Tdx.—Pennsylvania has-proMpt
ly paid in full to the U. S. Government the
proportion of her: war tax, and in doing so,
has saved nearly $300,000 to the State.—
This fact shows conclusively 'the internal
prosperity of the Commonwealth, and the
immense resources which she has at her
command. With over a 115,000 men in
the field, says the Telegraph, with some of
our most active and enterprising men direct-
ly engaged in the war, with the genius and
talent of our people, as it were, leading in
the same direction, our credit remains unim
paired, and our financial ability is the same
as when peace blessed every man with hope
and gave to industry an energy that seemed
almost invincible.
We ate pleased to find a coppy of The 'Vil
lage Record upon our table, published by
W. Blair at Waynesboro,' this County. We
rather like the free and independentyine of
this Paper in regard to our National troubles,
LW it is an open and uncompromising enemy
of Secessionism, in every form that hydra

For Sick and Wouaded - Sediers.—We
have been requested to state that some of
the ladies in this place, are now engaged in
getting up a box of provision for the sick
and-wounied soldiers at Frederick, Md. A
lady in attendance there writes to a friend
here that they are much in want of this kind
of hospital supplies. Articles will be thank

Down at Last—The old log dwelling
house on Main street, opposite the Conti

RIA BLAIR by Dr. 13ROTRERTON, was re
moved on Wednesday last by Mr. ANDREW

in the town, erected there perhaps 75 or 80
years ago. We understand the Doctor de

1l Gov. Ilraaford, of Maryland, has issu
ed a proclamatiOn urging the prompt res,
pease of that State to the call of the Presi

is an extract:—
Men of Maryland, I look to you with con
fidence to be among the foremost in respond
ing to this call. There.are reasons why you
should be. You are, as it were, the natural
body guard of the Capital of the nation. If

Such a conflict will not be permitted to be

of this city. His opportunities for learn

were, from the nature of his position in the

it. He is, beyond all question, a t this time,
the most infamous of living men, and the

Four small steamers, with four barges in

They took out !oiling Oust,
Anti laid his little antinin heed , ,,
Deep in his mother deist.
And then they raised a little mound
To make the solemn place
A spot of priceless sacred_ ground,
No ages can efface.
All covered with the mossy groom
That now enshrouds his bed,
He oleops so long ant% so serene
That Nature calls "he's dime '

We hear the warbling birds
In feeling songs of bleakest woe

To ease these broken. hearts of palm,
And 'grace our little bower.
