THOMPSON REYNOLDS. Married, - on
Tuesday afternoon, June 18th, 1867, at the
residence of the bride's parents, by the Rev.
Joseph Painter, Mr. J. Pattoh Thoscpsox, of
Philadelphia, to Miss Ellis Thompson,
daughter of. Alexander Reynolds, Esq., of
Kittanning, Pa. No cards. .
Joe, you've gone and done it -haven't
you X We must confess that we thought
you "unsusceptible," as they say out in
the world, Joe not by any means an
"old bachelor," you know, but superbly
and unmitigatedly indifferent to all the
blandishments of tho universal woman
creation, just. We had good reason, we
imagined, for adjudging you thus, Joe,
for we knew you to have undergone seiges
interminable and bombardments innume
rable from enemies whose seige-trains
were winning words and sweet smiles and
whose batteries were beautiful, brilliant
eyes, enemies whose enmity was love,-
we knew you to have undergone all this,
we say, and further knew you on every
occasion of the kind to emerge from the
lists heart-whole. And thus it was and
thus it came about that we set you down
as ticketed on the through train for the
land of cold mutton-chops and button
less shirts. But we were wrong. We
did not perceive even the shadow of this
thing to be that away up along the old
Indian War Fath there dwelt a fair maid
en before whose radiant charms and graces
you should strike your flag of a single
star. We were wrong we acknowledge
it; and we hereby take back our former
harsh judgment of you, Joe, and substi
tute in its stead the assurance that we
always knew you for one of warm heart
and generous, gentle blood. And we now
see, and blush that we failed to see it be
fore, that you have only been waiting for
her who, above all others, could fill the
measuro of the one and stir the current of
the other to its deepest depths. Voila I
It is June now : may many recurring
scores of the month of roses smile on you
and your happiness, and for that matter,
may tho entire twelvemonth wear to you
the color of the rose !
Taxes. The Collector of Internal
Revenue for this district gives notice that
he will collect the tax on income, the tax

Base Ball. The Kickenapawlings
and Irons, both Johnstown clubs, played
a match game in that place on Wednes
day of last week. Score, 37 to 41 in
favor of the Irons... .A match game will
be played in Johnstown on the 5th July,
between the Westmoreland club of Greens
burg and the Independents of Johnstown.
...A match game will be played in the
same place on the Gth July, between the
Iron and Independents.. ..The Summit

Fatal Accident. On Wednesday
morning of last week, a man named Ste
phen Fleming, of Ilollidaysburg, was
killed at Gallitzen. He was engaged
uncoupling cars, whea he fell upon the
track, and seven cars passed over his
legs, just below the knees, mangling him
so terribly that ho died in a few hours
This is said to be the fifth fatal accident
of the kind which has occurred at that
point during the present year.
Os Dit. It is said to be a fact that
Mr. George Huntley, of the Ebensburg
Hardware and House Furnishing Store,
sells articles in his lino 15 to 20 percent,
cheaper than anybody else in town. For
a description of hia stock, see a catalogue
elsewhere in this paper. To ascertain
the truth of the story about the low pri
ces, give Mr. II. a call. He is always at
home, with the latch-stiing hanging out.
A Wrecked Family. The family of
Daniel Buser, who was hanged in this
place a year ago, is a complete wreck.
Mrs. Buser is a maniac at Dixmont. A
son is an inmate of the County Poor
House, and is also subject to fits of insan
ity. The Pittsburg papers announce that
last week this son, in a fit of insanity, es
caped from the Poor House, but was
afterwards captured and sent back.
Died. In Pittsburg, on Friday, 21st
instant, Mr. James Roberts, son of Rev.
Richard Roberts, dee'd., of Cambria tp.,
aged about 30 years. The remains were
brought here on Saturday, and interred
In Ebensburg, on Friday, 21st inst.,
Harriet, wife of Mr. Rowland J. Hum
phrey, aged about 24 years.
Thanks,' to Mr. Aleck Y. Jones, for
an, acceptable prosent.
The Political Sitution.- Dear At
leg. : The Dem. delegate elections will be
held next Saturday. On that day, the
fight which has been raging . so fiercely
for weeks between the political vultures
and hangers-on will approach, a head, and
on the following Monday will be definite
ly concluded. A large number will be
killed and wounded in the encounter, and
the missing will be beyond compute, but
it is confidently expected that immediately
following the nominations the aspirants
and perspirants, lucky and unlucky, will
strike hands and enter into a new alliance
offensive and defensive. The prospect of
spoils . in the future will be the agent
evoked to crystalizo tho heterogeneous
Concerning the tioket to be formed on
Monday my own private opinion contin
ues to be that Col. Linton will head the
list for Assembly, John A. Blair follow
for Sheriff, Gen. M'Donald ring in for
Treasurer, and P. M'Gough, Esq., Frank
Bearer, or some other man, bring up the
rear for Commissioner.
If the Convention retains a recollection,
though the faintest, of Delegate M'Coi
gan's speech before the Convention last
year, they will, or should, have no hesita
tion. in nominating 'Squire M'Gough for
Commissioner. If this is not done, there
will be a danger that Washington town
ship, the wheel-horse of Democracy, will
kick up in the traces and refuse to pull
any direction but backward.
But we shall see what we shall see. So
wheres the use speculating ? In conclu
sion, I beg to insist that the Convention
shall make it their business to see that Eb
ensburg gets three-fourths of the candi
dates. Failing iuthis, they will be remiss
in their duty. Allow me to ask, for
what do we Democrats live here, at the
county-seat, year in and, year out, if not
for the offices? We demand at least the
proportion named. Observer.
"Woman's Work in the Civil War."
Thi3 is the title of a handsomely executed
book, giving an account of the works of char
ity performed by the women of America du
ring the trying scenes of the great rebellion.
It is ably written, and will give the reader
an idea of the trials and labors of that noble
band of women who exerted themselves in
prisons and hospitals for the relief of our
sick and wounded soldiers. It also shows
that these women exercised in caring for
and comforting the distressed soldiers of the
common enemy, that spirit of charity and
abnegation of prejudice which is the greatest
charm of women. Published by Zeigler, M'
