Dancing ivn Ciiicistiamtt. I'nder this head
a writer, iu the Jhiilv over the Miniature of
Truth, bad some strictures on dancing aud cliris'
tiaulty, which elicited a reply over the siguature
of L'ritict iu which the latter look the ground
that dancing per c, or of itself, was no sin, a
proposition so self-evident that one would hard
ly have supposed uny intelligent uiau would at
tempt to controvert it. But uot so. Truth iu his
rejoinder, not ouly contends that dauelng is siu
ful iu itself, but imagines that lie can prove it to
be so by scriptural references. There never
wus a book so outrageously perverted as the
Bible, aud that too, frequently by pc'iious who
profess to revere it inobl. Truth, iu order to
sustain his position quote an authority to shew
that "dancing is included iu rcvcliug," or iu
olher word, because a man in a druuken de
bauch may chose to qp nee, dauciug must neces
sarily be sinful. By the same syllogistic rea
soning be might prove that siugiug is sinful be
cause In these rteelt siugiug is perhaps more fre
queutly indulged in tliau dauelng. A revel U
properly defined to be "a riotous feast," and by
the same syftem of reasouing Truth might es
tablish the fact that eating was sinful because
it is au essential part of a revel. The idea there
fore, In attempting to prove that dalieiug and
revelry arc synonomous terms is simply absurd.
Again he quotes from the o'2J chapter of Exo
dus, lath verse as follows: ''Moses came unto
the camp aud saw the calf and the iufteiny."
Why did Truth omit the precediug verse iu
w hich Moses says,"he also heard singing." Moses
says distinctly that "ho heard them tiiiKjing,"
aud wheu be came iffh unto the camp "he saw
the talfani the dancing aud his ungcr waxed
hot." Now what right or authority has Truth,
or any oue else, to s:iy that the auger of Moses
was aroused by the dancing more than the
siugiug. The tenor of the whole chapter shows
that the indiguation of Moses was caused by
the worship of the golden image, ui:d had not
the remotest reference to cither the dauciug or
siugiug, aud there is uot a word in the entire
chapter that can be construed as condemnatory
of either one or the olher.
To talk of the idolatry of uaucing is sheer
Lousensc, as much so as .would be the idolatry
of singing. Dancing Is ot only recoguized In
the Bible, but bus beeu cultivated among chris
tians as au agreeable and innocent amusemeut
in all ages, aud there is high authority, that it
was practiced at one time as a religious
rite among the Jws, and Is eveu now among
soaie sects of christains. On the other baud
gluttony is invariably condemned, and yet we
bear of no denunciations from tbe pulpit against
feasting, or excessive feeding, which is strongly
cnuducive to gluttony, an evil ten times more
injurious, physically, than even excessive
dancing. There Is scarcely a privilege we en
joy, or an amusemeut we iudulge in, that may
not be abussd, and be that cannot discriminate
between tbe use and abue of a thing is not a
fit or proper instructor in uiorals or religion.
Because some kinds of dauciug may be, and
is, sometimes, objectionable, It does not follow
that the graceful movements and measured
stes of a cotillion, ciceially iu our owu dwell
ings should be discarded as iiiiprocr and irreli
gious, and for which is sometimes substituted,
stupid plnysof more thnn doubtful propiiety.
A Little Giul Assai i.tek nv Tkami-s. Two
negro tramps were loitering about the premises
of 1-. B. Wcstfall, in Caketown, on Tuesday
morning last, aud when a little girl of Mr.
Wcstfall was passing along oue of the negroes
caught her and carried her a short distaticc.
The girl screamed aud resisted stoutly, when she
was let go and she ran towards the house. The
negroes followed her, but Mr. Wcstfall came to
her assistance and the negroes ran off towards
the hill east of the P. Hi E. shops. Chase was
made by a uumber of persons, .Ttid -they were
overtaken somewhere about the bloody spring.
They were lakeu before 'Squire Pursel, who com
mitted them for a hearing. What the object was
of these two tramps to make the assault can
only be conjectured. They gave their names us
David Lyuk and Motce Mathews. The utlair
created a great excitement, aud when brought
in the -Squire's office they were followed by au
excited multitude of people. It is about time
that something is doue to put a check to the
ramp nuisance. They are generally a hardened
class, uud should at once be driven out of town
or arrested as vagrants.
Dbatu oe Mhs. Riddle. Wc regret that wa
arc compelled to aunouoce the death of a most
estimable lady, the wife of Rev. F. B. Riddle,
who died al tbc residence of ber brother, S. J.
Packer, Esq., of this place, ou Tuesday morning
last. Her disae was consumption, which wus
hastened by nervous prostration caused by over
exertion. Her bereaved husband U a prominent
diviueof the M. E. Church, uud was lately sta
tioned ut Danville, Pa. The deceased was a sis
ter to the Hu. J. B. Packer, and S. J. Packer,
Esq., cashier of tire First National Bnuk of Sun
bury, and wus highly esteemed for ber many
cliristiau virtues, aud greatly respected us a
neighbor aud friend to the distressed. She was

The Sliiiinokln Tinttt says that that place ha
several cases of small pox. Would il uot be
well for our borough "dads" to give the streets
and alleys of Sunbury a cleaning up, and thus
endeavor to prevent that disease from making
its appcurauce here t bally of Munuay.
Oh, no, neighbor ; that would be too extrava
gant. Economize say our borough "duds" aud
pay off the borough debt before any more Im
provements are made. Lift year about three
thousand dollars were saved by the overseers of
the poor by economizing. The borough indebt
edness, however, is ibe same, wbirb maybe ac
counted for by the streets and alleys receiving a
little brushing In the spring and expending tbe
money in that way. We dou't blame the Chisf
Burges9, however, for squandering money In
making auy improvements on our streets, as we
feel confident that be is oppossd to all each pro

Oi k neighbor of the Democrat lately went to
consult a clairvoyant before Venturing much
further into speculations of building the new
jail. This is what he says about it in the JJailg
of Tuesday last t
"aiunbury ha- a clairvoyant stoppiug ia its
midst, where persons for thirty-five cents cum
get a knowledge of their future. The editor of
the Lewisburg Chronicle should lose no time Iu
ma kiDg an investmeLt, as thereby would be ob
tained some knowledge which might eveu puzzle
Providence. The editors of lie Williaiusporl
Oaeette and Lulletin bad belter uot apply, as the

"There is a rumor afloat that the cveuing

Such au arraugemeut would also give us an

SuHtlny Times says : "Wednesday night there

by a flauk movement of the police upou a gamb

several weeks il was secretly whispered that

those who were so suddenly pounced upon were
held as witnesses. A bran new faro table, com

The police deserve credit lor this feat, lor if
there is any law upou the statue book that de
serve to be rigidly enforced it is that against
gambling. There arc families iu this city who
have beeu deprived Irom lime to time of the ne
cessaries of life ou account of the propensities
of the head to venture hard earnings iiihju the
gamiug table. It leads to suicide, aud wretched
ness in mauy tonus, while proprietors pass
through the streets of cities clothed iu rich at
tire, and brilliant with cosily jewelry. There
ure other disreputable dens that deserve to be
swept by nn ollicial tornado. Lit the storm
break at once."
Tbc ubove is a good example set for our olli
eers to imitate. There are several gambling

Tbe n;rvous, weakly invalid does not enjoy
life, but merely "drug out existence," ns the
phrase is. Unfitted for the active pursuits of
life, uud incapable of partaking of Us pleasures,
to which health ulone can give a zest ; disin
clined lo social intercourse, and a prey to mel
uhchuly, tlie valetudinarian M indeed au object
of pity. Yet there is nothing lu all this that
cannot be remedied by that genial alterative
tonic aud nervine, Hosiettcr's Stomach Bitters,
which supplies deficient stamina, braces the uer
vouk system, and overcomes those bodily irregu
larities to which nervous wcakuess is most fre
quently, attributable. Diseases of the kid ncy
aud bladder, imperfect digestion nud uteriue
troubles are fertile sources of debility. Their
eradication however, becomes u mutter of cer
tainty when Hostellers Stomach Bitters are sys
tematically used lor that purpose. The Bitters
likewise annihilate aud prevent fever uud ague

Who will be wailed on kindly

Aud reveling in wonder.

Other old staid firms
Have ull withered aud blu-t.
And yielded their places
To new-comers at last.
Not aloiia iu this calling.
But in all kinds of trade,
Have these numeious great changes
Been solemnly made.
K'eu the great preachers,
Old churches uud schools,
Have all felt these changes
To annulled or renewals.
All the old merchants,

With the old leaning tower,
Has shifted the scenes
To suit the new hour.

To memory so clear,
When we yet thus recall them,

Some have beeu wishiug for us
Like the rest to go under.
And as we have not done so
They view us with wonder.
Some say we're not able
To write such a piece,
Cause, why, we're too much
Of an African fleece.
That is ull right.
We've no more to say,
But kindly invite you
To come over this way.
And not to go past,
Nor from around our shop,
To get shaved and your hair cut
At some other shop.

Of many years long.
