FIREMAN'S PAIZADF::—OR Monday last,
notwithstanding the inclement weather,
the parade, consequent upon the recep
tion of the Union Hook and Ladder,
came off. The truck and fixtures, manu
factured by Messrs. Thompson, R us h ig
& Grove, are really a credit to the work
manship of those men and the mechan
ism of our town. It was the intention
of the principle getters up of this demon.
atration, to postpone it on account of
the weather, but the arrival of our neigh
bors from Columbia settled to the con
trary, and the parade cent on regardless
'of the pouring rain, which was; all things
considered, quite a creditable display,—.
In the evening a ball was given to the
Columbia visitors, which, we are told,
passed off finally. Mr. Folks, who has
been the chief in this Hook and Ladder
movement, has furnished us with the
result of the operations of the ball, by

learn that be has been unanimously e

Speaking of the gallant captain the
Pittsburg Gazette says:
Thoroughly imbued with the military
spirit, a strict disciplinarian and correct
tactiuien,Major Hambright re-enters the
service of his country at his advanced age
with all the spirit and animation, and
with much more experience, than most
of the officers who remain with us.
With the advantage of such a thorough
drill, , we shall be surprised if the Rifles
do not render a good account of them

iSCBSCRIPTIONS FOR RELIEF : The Re
lief Committee of this Borough again re
spectfully call the attention of subscri
bers to the above, to the subject of pay
ment. They ask, at present, only one
third of each amount subscribed. Some
have paid in full—others have paid one
half—others one-third or more ; but the
greater part have not yet paid any ; prob
ably because they have not been called
on. But as the duties of the Visitors
have been pretty arduous without ma
king collections, the Committee hope
that most (if not all) of the subscribers
will lessen these labors by calling on the
Visitors and making payment, without
waiting to be called upon.
The Committee wonld also very re
spectfully state that all subscriptions
made thus far must be paid in .cash, as
fairness to all requires ; and especially
as the Committee cannot give their at
tention to auditing bills and dispensing .
orders. The families to be relieved
should, also, be treated alike as far as
possible, as well as subscribers ; and
cash payments., will best enable us thus
to treat all parties.
This, however, is not to exclude any
donations in produce which may be offer
ed hereafter—all such will be received
at the stores already named, and will be
faithfully dispensed as directed by the
doners. But cash subscriptions will al
ways be preferred- by the Committee.

THE WONDERS OF THE WATER-CURE are

WILKIE COLLINS' NEW BOOK
The Crossed Path; A Story of Modern Life
and Manners. Br Wilkie Collins, author of
" Woman in White," The Dead Secret,"
etc., and far superior to either of them. One
vol., 12m0., cloth, $1.25; or in ttvo vols.,
paper cover, for one Allier.
Read what the Editor of the New York
Daily News says of it :
" T. B. Peterson Sr. Brothers have given to
the public, in an acceptable form, one of the
most remarkable works of fiction that .'has
ever been issued from the press. The Cross
ed Path, a Story of Modern bile and Manners,'
exhibits in' a pre , eminent degree, the power
possessed by Mr. Wilkie Collins, of sustairfing
the interest of a story which in other hands
would probably prove tedious. The two - con
trolling agencies of the plot are loVe and re
venge, which are Made in turn to work upon
each other. The hero has the misfortune to
have a father who is very tenacious of ances
tral honors, and who is desirous that he shotild
ally himself by marriage to a. family equally
as ancient as his own. As is often the case
in such instances, the young man hills in love
with a woman who is inferior in social posi
tion, • a tradesman's daughter, and to escape
the consequences of his father's wrath, marries
her secreus . Here the revengeful iedividuaL
appears upon the scene, in the shape of the
linen-draper's confidential clerk, who has been
deprived by the hero, of the woman he was
desirous of marrying. In addition to this
ground for hatred, his father was hung for for
gery through the evidence of thehero's father.
"To avert all suspicion, the hero agrees not
to claim his wife, or demand any of the rivil
eges of a husband her the space of a year.—
This interval is improved by Mannion, who
gains the affections of his wife find consum
mates his disgrace on the night. before the ex
piration of the year. To this the hero is a
witness, and proceeds to wreck his vengeance
upon the head of Mannion, leaving, him ap
parently lifeless in the street. He, however,
Survives, and after having unconsciously caus
ed the death of the unfortunate woman, still
pursues the hero with his hate". Having
alienated him from his father, he persecutes
him in various ways, until be ar last falls a
victim to his own impetuosity and is dashed
to pieces over a precipice. The persecuted
victim is then restored to his family a wiser,
though perhaps, not happier man. The story
is told very skillfully, and the more objection
able features of the plot are handled with
. delicacy. We would advise, all our
readers to get the book and read it, Mr it is
the most remarkahle work of the day."
