Wide Awake Torch -light Procession!
The Lincoln Club and Wide Awakes
of this place, augmented in numbers by
the attendance of numerous citizens of
the District, and Wide Awakes from
Silver Springs, Mountjoy and Columbia,
held a highly interesting demonstration
on last Thursday evening, in connection
with the Pole-raising noticed in another
article. The afternoon and early even
ing were rainy, misty and lowering ; but
about the time of meeting, the clouds
began to' clear away, and finally gave us
a good evening. The meeting, w hi c h
had been adjourned to the Town Hall
on account of the weather, was therefore
recalled to the Lower Station; and in
due season was called to order by A. B.
Grosh, whereupon E. D. Roath, Esq.
nominated, and the meeting elected the
following officers to preside.
President—JonN J. COCHRAN, Lan-
Vice Presidents—Col. William Brady,
Mountjoy ; Col. J. W. 'Fisher, Columbia;
Esaias Billingsfelt, Esq., Adamstown ;
Jacob Stahl, Marietta; Henry Copen
heffer, Hempfield ; Levi Boughter, Chic
ques ; Simon Groh, East Donegal ; H.
S. Book, Maytown ; Dr. P. Hinkle, Hen
ry Sultzbach, and others, Marietta.
Secretaries—A. N. Cassel, A. rt. Mas-
Belmar', and S. C. Hiestand.
The nominations were confirmed with
hearty cheers ; after which the President
made some very spirited and ap
propriate remarks on the issues of the
day and duties of voters, and concluded
by introducing Francis W. Christ. Esq.,
of Litiz, the candidate of this County on
the Republican Electoral Ticket.
Mr. Christ's address was in what sound
ed to us like a very pure German, yet
plain, simple and clear; and was devoted
to a serious, candid and convincing ex
amination of the principles of the two
parties, It was listened*, with an eager
ness that was more complimentary than
even the loud applause with which the
speaker was greeted.
A recess was then taken until the
dose of the Torchlight procession, which
in all this time had been drawing its bril
Hunt length through the various streets o
our town, filling them not only with light
but music also by the Mount Joy and
Silver Spring Bandstand the martial
music of our own performers. At the
close of the procession, speaking was re
sumed by the introduction of David
Al 'mina, Esq., of Harrisburg, also a can
didate on our electoral ticket.
M r. Mumma, after referring to the very
late hour, proposed speaking in 14.:nglish
and intersperse his remarks with an oc
casional explanation and illustration in
German. Ile then launched vigorously
into a discussion of the tariff, the home
stead, the niggerisms" of the democratic
platforms, &c.; interspercing various racy
dutch anecdotes in illustration, that con
vulsed his hearers with peals of laughter
and applause that made the welkinring.
At the close, calls were made for Mr.
Christ, (who, however, deblin4 as it was
now near midnight,) and cheers were
given with lusty "tigers" for the candi
datee, the speakers, the President of our
Club, the good cause, &c.. &v.
Had the afternoon and early evening
been pleasant, larger delegations would
have been present from those places
represented, beside some from other pla
ces. But even under all the disadvanta
ges of weeping skies and muddy roads,
the meeting, procession, &c., was a great
success, that is haying its due effect on
onr citizens. Many documents were dis
tributed, and will undoubtedly be read
and circulated, having their effect like
wise in giving light to some who yet sit
in darkness.
lit - The Lancaster Union speaking of
the late County Fair says the attend
ance was not so great as in former years.
The unpleasant and wet weather of
Thursday and the Firemen's procession
on Friday interfered materially to pre
vent as large an attendance as was desi
rable and expected. The display also
was small in comparison with former ex
hibitions. Some of the departments,
hoWever, were quite full. The stalls set
apart for stock were well filled and the
display was very creditable,
'Ferdinand Zech has removed his
boot and shoe store from his former
place to the building adjoining "The
Hermitage" hotel. Mr. Z. has more
room here to display Nis ample stock of

ceived a new and beautiful lot., lie con

Notwithstanding the very unfavorable
weather on Thursday afternoon last, a
Liberty Pole, 94 feet long, was success
fully raised by the friends of Lincoln,
Hamlin and Curtin, at the Lower Sta
tion in this borough. The banner is in
scribed on one side "Lincoln Hamlin
and Curtin"— on the other " Protection
for free Labor." Above that is a beau
tiful national flag, bearing the thirteen
original stars. This flag is the work of
many fair hands whose skilful fingers
wrought together its mingled hoes of red,
white and blue.
"Flag of the free heart's hope and home I
By angel hands to valor given ;
Thy stars have lit the welkin dome,
And all thy hues were born in heaven."
Above the flag, in the crotch of the
pole, is an elegant wreath, presented by
Mrs. Dr. Hinkle, of this borough—and in
the centre of the wreath the patriotic la
dy has wrought the names "Lincoln—
Hamlin-Curtin." Names so honored
deserve to be, and will be, elected.
Capt. S. D. Miller has mounted a fine
Lantern on the top of the pole, which
gives no " doubtful light ;" and Mr. Er-
Ismail has mounted, between the banner
and the ground, an enormous maul—em
blematic of that which splits and rives
the enemies of our Union, and mauls the
plunderers of the people's treasures.
The pole itself was a gift from James
L. Shultz, Esq., from his farm, adjoining
town, known as the Major Haines farm.
For an account of the meetings held
after the raising of this " Liberty Tree,"
we refer to another article.
A number of patriotic ladies, (and no
less skilful in housewifely arts than in
showing forth their love of country and
of freedom,) met on Wednesday last, and
engaged in the much needed work of
preparing a national flag for the Repub
licans. By. Thursday noon it was bung
in Centre Square, on a rope stretched
from the residence of Samuel Bailey,
Esq., diagonally across to the "Donegal
House" of S. G. Miller. And shortly
after noontide, it was elegantly wreathed
and festooned by the same fair hands.—
The Republicans of Marietta and sur
rounding district have certainly great
reason to be proud of - this noble flag,
which is 24 feet long and 12 wide—and
no less proud and grateful to the ladies
who decorated it. It is an elegant flag
and is well calculated to inspire the sen
timent of the gifted Dr. Drake--
"Forever float that- standard sheet ! -
Where breathes the foe but falls before us,
With Freedom's soil beneath our feet
Add Freedom's banner streaming o'er us!,
We hope that every Republican voter
in the district, or who may cast his eyes
on that flag, will do his devoirs to the
fair hands that wreathed it, by voting, on
next Tuesday, for Curtin and the whole
ticket—and in November next, for . Lin
coln and Hamlin. He best honors them
and proves his gratitude by carrying out
their wishes—and the Ladies, all, (God
bless them !) are for the Union, the Con
stitution as expounded by its framers
and administered by our fathers, for Lib
erty increased and increasing, and for
free homes, on free soil, for free men.
The Pioneer Fire Company of this
borough, attended the great Firemen's
Parade at Lancaster on Friday last, and
whilst there on Saturday, we were quite
flattered to hear the encomiums passed
upon the good appearance and good be
havior of our efficient and energetic fire
men. This parade has been pronounced
the finest had in the "Inland City" within
the recollection of the "oldest inhabi
tant." "The Old Soldier"—Captain S.
D. Miller—was, during the marching of
the procession, placed on the Pioneer
Hose Carriage, with musket in hand,
looking as defiant as Mars, the God of
illigrA German named Henry Walfen,
living in the alley near S. & B. Hies
tand's 1-amber yard, at the lower end of
town, died very suddenly on Wednesday
evening last. He had just finished a
hearty supper at Cassel's tavern and on
leaving the bar room door fall over upon
the porch dead. He was a man of very
intemperate habits.
int'On the 29th ult. a farm belonging
to Mr. B. B. Gonder, near Strasburg
bor., containing one hundred acres, was
sold to Mr. Jacob Herr, of West Lam
peter, for one hundred and seventy-one
dollars per acre.
garOn the 28th ult. the farm of Joseph
Nissley in East Donegal-twp., adjoining

containing 122 acres, was sold at public

An Effective, Safe and Economical Compound,
For miming Gray Hair to its original color
without dyeing, and preventing the hair from
turning gray.
For Preventing Baldness, and curing it, when
there is the least particle of vitality or recuper
ative energy remaining.
For Removing Scurf and Dandruff; and all
cutaneous affections of the Scalp.
. . .
For Beautifying the Hair, imparting to it an
unequalled gloss and brillancy, making it roft
and silky in its texture and causing it to curl
The great celebrity and the increasing de
mand for this unequalled preparation, convinc e
the proprietor that one trial is only necessary
to satisfy a discerning public of its superior
qualities over another preparation at present in
use. It cleanses the head and scalp from dand-.
ruff and other cutaneous diseases. Causes the
hair to grow luxuriantly, and gives it a rich,
soft, glossy and flexible appearance, and also
where the hair is loosening and thinning, it will
give strength and vigor to the roots, and restore
the growth to those parts which have become
bald, causing it to yield a fresh covering of hair.
There are hundreds of ladies and gentlemen
in New York who have had their hair restored
by the use of this Invigorator, when all other
preparations had failed. L. has in his pos
session letters innumerable testifying to the
above facts, from persons of the highest respec
tibility. It will effectually prevent the hair
from turning gray until the latest period o t life ;
and in cases where the hair has already changed
its color, the use of the Invigorator will, with
certainty restore to its original hue, giving it a
dark, glossy appearance. As a perfume toilet
and a Hair Restorative it is paiticularly rec
ommended, having an agreeable fragrance;
and the great facilities it affords in dressing
the hair, which, when moist with the Invigo
rator can be dressed in any 'required feria so as
to preserve its place, whether plain or in curls
—hence the great demand for it by the ladies
as a standard toilet article which none ought to .
be without, as the price places it within the
reach of all, being
Only Twenty-five Cents
per bottle, to be had at all respectable druggists
and perfumers.
L. Miller would call the attention of Parents
and Guardians to the use of his Invigorator, in
cases where the childrens' Hair inclines to be
weak. The use of it lays the foundation for a
good head of hair, as it removes any impurities
that may have become connected with the
scalp, the removal of which Is necessary both
for the health of the child, and the future ap
pearance of its Hair.
