vantage is about to be taken of the recruiting
spirit, which is now more active than it has been
for a long time back, nnd an endeavor w ill bo
made to recruit a full regiment In this city, to be
known as ihe Second l ire Zoaavc Ilegimaiit.
The necessary au'horay h is been rjeeived from
the War Department; the term of scrvi o to In
oiieyiur. About .' al in. n have aire a ly been so
cured. The regiment will be under the cini nand
of Colonel John G. Smith, I ate rapt tin in the
l'ibth Itcgiment 1'c'insylvania o'un'.cors, a id
l.ieiitct.uiu-Coioiiil, ilcnry lie "raino, b ah old
vetfians. A meeting of the ollicors of flic rcg'
iiu nt will be held this ufierno in, when urraiK'e
nicnts will be undo to at once commence recruit
ing. The old regiment of the 1'ire ' maves or
ganicd in this city w as composed of member ' of
the lnro Department, and it is propo-ed to have
Ihi regiment formed ol the same elfvtivo m ite
riul. l'hp spiiit ol reernitiii'; is now rife, and it i
thought ihe regiment w ill be tilled in threo weeks.
It is more than probable th it the l ira Dap irttiient,
which is never Inching in patriotism, will take
some action iu the inn'ter.and thus aid in spoe lily
organizing a regiment on the same footing as the
old regiment of Fire . uiavcs, whose heroic dee J-
form one of the brighte-t pages of history.
Tim Diiai t. There may or may uotbeanofher
draft. If recruiting continue as brisk ai It has
been for the past month or two, the ranks can be
kept tilled by volunteering. We have no doubt a
sufficient number of men are in tht fle'd to end the
war, but this number mint pot be -Increased.
Volume rs must bo ready to take tho place of
those who may die or are disahled. As soon us
volunteering cea-cs, and the supply of men falls
short of the dcuiand, then a (Iran w ill b ) mado.
Having this fact in view, tho I'ro-.oit M irshals
have issued a notice relative to tho correction of
Ihe enrolment lists. Parties properly interested
w ill at nil times have an oppori niiiy to appear
rk i'orc the Hoard and have their names stricken
I rem iha list, if any are improperly enrolled.
This is a matter in wh'ch every m ni sublet to
inilitniy duty i Interested, as every nunc stricken
from the list reduces Ihe ipiota of the sub-district
to which the party m iy belong.

How to Smom: Of the thousands of men in
this city who smoke tobacco, there are but few
who arc aciiiiaintoil with tho secret of s nokitig.
The method makes all the difference In the world
so Iiir as tho pleasure and tho ctl'ee. upon th
constitution arc concerned. Those who use tho
clean, long pipes of clay.fcel only tho ctT ct of
ii.o gaseous oodies ami tue ireo carbon. Wooden
i csand pipes with gliss stem are injurious.
Cigars should never be smoked to tbo end ; ofher
wie they aro more injurious than all. Tuny
should Lc cast aside ns soon as one-half is
smoked, and always smoked from a porous or
absorbent tube, l'ipos arcmuch less hurtful th in
cleats, l'he best pipe is a long clay pipe; next to
this the inecrsi h nun is the most wholesome. The
pet iVcti m of a pim will be found in a meerschaum
Ir wl, an amber mouth piece and a clay stem. Ail
attempts at pipes to condense the oil have thus
lar failed. Every smoker should bo careful of
the manner in which he smokes. A short, foul
1 ipe is very unhoaitlil'til.
l'he fashion of the meerschaum has largely
prevailed In lids country of Lite years. Tho ma
terial is now imported in blocks, und manufac
tured here info various forms, somo very huud
s me and costly. The prices range as high a
thirty-five dollar. Tho proprietor of a good
meerschaum think as much of it nltiiot as of
litinsi If. If It s well colored, hlc.li is tho result
of absorbing the oi! of the tohueeo, it not o ily
becomes beautiful in his eyes, but the smokj is
said to be sweeter to his tsste.
The cigar dealeis asert that, notwithstanding
tbe heavy tax on tobacco manufacture, t'au
demand has in no way fallen oil; htitthocontrvy.
Anon Oasrmts. About a million bushels of
oystcis ara yearly Imported from Chesapeake

of oysters aro found clinging to tho shells of the

porud oysters are subject to many d ing.-rs ia
tiansportution. The pitching of the vessel in a
rough sea iiflecU them, uuil if Ihe hatches are
left open in a dense fog, aud it pervades the hold
containing them, they are killed by it. A thun

An l.NdiiNiors Contmvancb. new and
bcautifnl method of lighting gas without tho use
of a match has ba. n introduced in this city. It is
a neat aud elegant fixture, consiing of a brass
cup lined with silk, a loose-fitting india-rubber
stopiicr, and nn Insulated copper wire coil, with a
pbiiimiin point dire "ly over tho burnor. Within
the stopper is placed u small pie.'c of tin fo.l to
hold or store for use Ihe electricity generated by
tue fip tion of t lie india-ru ober stopper unon the
si.k lining of the cup. Wnilo the cup is closed
there is a complete electric current maintained,
but when the gas is to lie lighted tlio cup is luVd,
tho electrical current is broken, an the el 'c
tricity pass s down the coil of wire to tho burner.
At tho .same moment the gas is turned ou, and
ill lun lly lighted. The ingenious and useful arti
cle we l ave described is lor sale by Cornelius
linker, ( hesnut street, above Seventh.
