A Good Hotel. The Rrockwayville
Hotel, kept by Messrs. Wheeler & Cobb
is said to bo one of the best hotels in
this section, and wo can cheerfully re.
commend it as being so, if they keep up
their former reputation. They propose
giving a ball on Christmas, and we trust
they will have a merry time.
ISTYesterday wo stopped into the
new store of n. S. Belnap, next door to
the Hyde House, and was surpiised to
find such a large stock of Goods. He
has his shelves literally crammed full of
as serviceable goods as were ever bro't
to this county, and which he says he
will sell cheaper than they can be
bought any other place in IUdgway.

SOur usually quiet villago was
thrown into a furore of excitement on
Monday last, by the appearance of three
young men who had imbibed an extra
supply of " benzine." They first went
to the hotel of our aged mend, 1 Layer,
and on being refused liquor, commenced
dancing. To this Mr. Thayer kindly
remonstrated ; they still persisted, and
Jlr. Moyer, constable of Fox township,
leing present, was asked to atrest them,
and upon his telling them to desist, they
took up their line of march for the
Hyde House, where, on learniug that
Mr, Moyer was not constable of RUly
viay, went back to the Thayer House,
and presenting a loaded revolver at the
head ot Mr. Moyer, compelled him to
accompany them back to the Hyde
House in order to prove that he was not
the constable. As soon as they arrived
there they were arrested by Mr. Moyer,
who in turn took them before Justice
Fuller for commitment. While the ex
amination was going on, one of the party
took " French leave," but was recaptur.
ed after a short run, and taken to jail.
In the erening a further examination
was held before the same justice, who
held them each to bail in the puni of
$1200, in default of which two of them

"The perfumed light
Steals through the midst of alabaster lamps,
And every air is heavy with the breath
Of orange flowers that bloom
V the midst of roses."
Such was tho flowery land filled with
hcalingjairs and life preserving products,
where Mr. Drako discovered the chief
ingredients of his wonderful Tonic Med
icine Plantation Bitters tho en
chanted tropical island of St. Croix.
The Plantation Bitters, combining
all the medicinal and tonic virtues of
the healing and the lil'c-sustaiuing pro
ducts of that favored clime, are, with
out doubt, the World's Great Remedy
for Dyspepsia, Low Spirits, and all otb.
er Stomachic difficulties.
Godey for Jasuarv. The best
number of tho best Lady's Magazine we
have ever seen. It is really a gem. A
piece of block printing is produced in
this number, especially for the ladies,
that is a noveltv in this country. It is
the figure of a stag, printed iu eight col
ors, and is exceedingly beautiful ; and
we presume could not bo purchacd in
the stores for doublo tho price of tho
Book. The two steel plates are very
fine, one of Ihcm contaius three distinct
pictures. Tho tinted cut a speciality
of Godey's is sweetly pretty ; aud the
inimitable fashion-plate is beyond all
praise. But the great feature of this
number is Godey's extension plate ot the
latest fashions, two feet long, printed on
both sides, making four feet a new
tiling. There is no magazine that eon
cot un a fashion emial to Godey. iVe
know that they are true, for we know
who it is that gels the.u up. The read
ing matter is decidedly good. Marion

17OR ALL DISEASES INCIDENT TO
Horses, Cattle and the Human Flesh,
requiring the use of an external application.
This new Compound, prepared by a prac
tical Chemist having a full knowledge of
all the medical virtues of each ingredient
that enters into its composition, is warran
ted to exceed anything of the kind yet of
fered to the public as an external applica
tion for the diseases for which it is recom
mnnded. We are satisfied that it will work
its own road into the confidence of all who
uso it, and those who try it once will never
bo without it, and therefore wo rely on ex
perience as the best test of its usefulness.
It is pronounced by Farriers, and all who
have tried it to be the best application ev
er used. This Embrocation has been put
up for over eight years, and it is only
through the increasing demand and urgent
request of my friends and the Public that
1 send it forth ns the grand remedial agent
for the various diseases to which that noble
and useful animal, the HORSE, issubject.
Many remedies have been offered to the
Public under different forms, some of these
arc injurious, others at best of little use,
and many wholly improper to answer tho'
purposes for which they are recommended.
A judicious and really useful composition
free from thoso objections, has therefore
long been desired by many gentlemen who
have valuable horses, and are unwilling to
trust them to the care of designing and
nrettending Farriers. Their wishes are a
length fully gratified, by Dr. Beale being
prevailed upon to allow this valuable Em
brocation (wluri has provcu so emcaeious
to the various diseases) to be prepared and
brought out to the public.
This embrocation was extensively usea
by tho Government during the war.
