Baltimore's programme for the Ori
ole will, it would appear, be limited
to the matter of the number of hours
embraced within the three day* and '
nights; from October 10th to ]2th '
inclusive. There is to be a peculiarly '
novel and striking water display, com- !
memorative of the inauguration of the
new water works. The fountains will '
be of remarkable dimensions, and the l
proceedings throughout will be of the s
most interesting character. Next in
order will be the grand parade of mili
tary, fire and civic organizations, and
Which will be a most brilliant sight. fi
The reception to the French visitors
will be a notable event, and of such a '
description as to fire the patriotic
heart, aud awake again the ole enthu
siasm of a hundred years ago. Among '
the Grenchtneti will be the immediate '
descendents of Lafayette, DeGrasse, '
Drßana*, and other great generals,
who at Yorktown rendered such glo
rious assistance to the American cause.
The distinguished French will be the •
guests of the city of Baltimore during '
the entire three days, and the hospi- l
tali tie* in their honor will be such as '
long to be remembered. Tuesday l
there is to be a grand concert by the '
famous Gilmore Band of New York, '
the place selected being the beautiful
Monument Square, where thousands l
can hear and whore there will be no
disturbing sounds. Tln3 matchless
organization numbers sixty-five of the
first musicians of New York, aud the
concert, which will be of between two
and three hours duration, will embrace
the choicest compositions of famous
composers. Of the gorgeous Oriole
pageant at night too much cannot be
anticipated, as it will go _far beyond
the expectation of the most sanguine. |
The brilliant moving spectacle will
roach upwards of three miles in length
and the subjects illustrated in the ex
quisitely beautiful tableaux will call
forth the greatest interest and excite
the most enthusiastic admiration. Bal
timore's first Mardi Gras will certainly
prove as promised, unparalelled in the
country. Wednesday there is to be
an exhibition of outdoor such as rarely
combined in a single day's pleasure.
There will be running, walking and
jumping matches,wrestling bouts,gym
nastic exercises, bycicle races, throw
ing of weights, in short, everything of
an athletic character. Early in the
evening there is to be a remarkably
fine exhibition of fireworks, American
and Japanese manufacturers vicing
with each other in wonderful and start
ling effects. Then comet the glorious
caruiual and ball, and the streets of
the city will be thonged with gay
masker*. The very low figure of one
half the usual fare on the Baltimore &,
Ohio is all that can be asked in the
way of low rates, and every caro will
be taken to insure comfortable accom
modations and quick time.
President Kennedy is still quietly
procuring the right of way for the
railroad extension towards Winchester.
The question of the faithful execution
of the wishes of the people of the coun
ty, by tho County Court, as embodied
in a solid ordinance and ratified at a
public election must soon be deter
mined. Martineburg, by the folly of
v past County Court, lost the connec- •
tion of the Shenandoah Valley Pail
road, and it remains to be seen, wheth
er, by a similar act of folly and blind
ness to the material interests of the
county, another retrograde movement
shall be made, or whether through,
and by renewed efforts we shall reach
out and connect ourselves with other
enterprises running ea.it and west,
north and south, and if possible, secure
a location of a fair share of industry
nnd manufacturing and reparing la
b;.r rece??ary *o carry on the opera-1
tion»ofane*tensiveand well conduoted
railway. This road is not likely to C
Lave its permanent terminus at Win- t
Chester, nnd oilier places are more like- I
ly'to become switches in the lino of 1
travel and business, than Martinsbttrg i
is to remain one il this extension goes l
mi. Elmitation i* always looked upon
as a dishonest plea unless backed by
an oath of payment, and when a por
tion ol' an original contract Is perform- l
i oil in good faith, taxes levied and paid I
in equitable proportion in all parts of
the county, it would be an outrageous
proposition to say wo have one end of I
the road—you must help us meet the
interest and principal on the bonds, '
but you shall have no part or parcel
of your end of the road. This would
be more of unpiineipalled trickery
than a horse jockey would display.
The ordinance was neither voted on ,
or adopted in sections, but as a whole.
We do not believe the whole amount
actually subscribed will be needed,
but it should be ordered honorably,
and the legitimate method of releasing
should follow.
Apparently now there is but little
necessity for the extension, but the
chances for tho future with the exten
sion completed are in our favor, and
without it they are certainly against
us. There are other reasons why
there should be no squibhling about so
simple a matter. Even B temporary
suspension of operations on the com
pleted part of the M. & P. road would
soon prove more costly (thiough a (
trick, but certainly not less dishonor
able than a refusal to issue) than the
issue and actual use of every dollar of
bonds subscribed.
English Capital Coming.
It is said that Priestly & Co., among
the largest English manufacturers of
fine dress goods, whose works at Brad
den run continually one thousand five ]
hundred steam looms, are about to
remove the entire business to Phila- ,
delphia. It is reported that the firm i
has become convinced that the indus- ;
trial interests of England are on a de- ,
clino and that the outlook for manu
facturers is much more promising in
the United States. A branch mill
was leased by the firm in Philadelphia
last spring as an experiment, and the
venture has been attended with so
much success that another largo num
ber of English looms have been sent |
to Unit city by the concern, which, as
has been said will shortly remove its
entire Works to Philadelphia. It is
I probable that this example will find
I imitators among English capitalists,
who are beginning to see that invest
ments in this country offer better in
ducements than at home. There is no
reason why Baltimore should not ab
sorb some of this overflowing capital,
its advantages as a manufacturing
centre are fully as great as those of
Philadelphia. Only our people must
at least give it an invitation.- — Balti
Baltimore's Hospitality.
The hotels of Baltimore are making
extraordinary efforts to insure comfort
able accommodations for the throng in
attendance at the Oriole celebration.
The city has over been neted for the
capacity of its hotels, their number,
accomodations, and unsurpossed excel
lence of their tables, and now that so
many strangers are to be provided for
it is the determination to show them
that Baltimore hospitality is equal to
all occasions. There will be no in
crease in the charges at any hotel,and
sufficient extra force of servants will
be employed to keep the service up
to its wonted high standard. Of one
thing the public may be assured, and
that is that Baltimore will giveji warm
and cordial reception to all, and fol
low it up with good accommodations
and an abundance to eat.
By a mistake we printed the price

tion that appeared in our last week's

ing correct price list received from
the gentlemen. Knowing that their
customers have too much confidence
in their mode of dealing than to have
considered tho matter in any other
light than limply as a mistake.

It makes the heart of every philan
thropist sad to see so many worthies*,
patent medicines, puffed and adver
tised for the cure of chronic diseases.
Usually the remedy is some vile com
pound, or alcoholic preparation, com
bined with buchu, turpentine or other
severe diuretic, that has no lasting ef
fect, and in truth, eventually brings
on a complication of diseases, arising
from a state of worn out and exhaust
ed digestive and urinary organs that
nothing but death can relie\j«. Inva
lids should trust more to nature for
their recovery. A gentle medical ton
ic that stimulates enfeebled digestiou,. i
and strengthens every part of the sys- j t
torn, by its soothing and refreshing ef- h
feet on both mind and body, is nature's I,
truest and best assistant. Such a ]
remedy is Brown's Iron Bitterr, a <
medicine surpassing the sale of all oth- ]
er remedies whenever its merits become (
known, for it acts in such perfoct bar- <
raony with the laws of life and health 1
that all pulmonary, urinary aud diges- ]
tive troubles are prevented and per- i
mancntly cured by its timely use. 1 ]
Physicians and ministers especially ]
endorse and recommend it highly 1
when once they are pursuaded to ex- ]
amine its composition and effect. Be
sure your druggists sell you Brown's ji
Iron Bitters, take nothing of a differ- ] i
ent name. It contains no alcohol,and ; |
will not blacken the teeth. 1

Misater Editor. —I have not hurd
anything ov me nephew, Tim Flanni
gin, since the last time I wrote. I
have moved from where I live now, or
I should have written before, but I
didn't know where a letter would find
him first; but I now take my pen in
my list to drap yees a few lines, to put
in yees paper, toinforumof him ez he
didn't tell me in his letter that he was
moved three weeks further up Virginia
to Middletown, that hi* own living
uncle was dead.
II; died very suddenly after a long
-di.jkness ov elevin months. Poor mon
God resht his soul, he suffered a
great deal. lie lay a long time in
convultions, perfectly quiet and spach
less, and all the time talking incoher
ently in inquories for wather, wather.
I am very much at a loss to know what
death was occasioned., from, but the
doctor thinks it was his lasht sickness,
for ho was not well ten days during
his whole confinement. His age my
nephew knows as well as I can tell ye
he was twenty-five years ould last
March, lacking fifteen months, and if
he had lived till this time he would
have been sis months died.
N. B. Take Notice. —I now enclose
to ye for my nephew a ten pound note
which his old father sends unbeknown
tv me. His ould mother often speaks
uv him, and she would like to send
the ould brindle cow, and I would in
close her to ye, only for the horns.
I wud beg ol ye not to brake the sale
of this 1 ether until tv or three days
after ye have printed it. By that
time he will bo niorj prepared for the
soroful noos.
