The signs of the timet, what are they. 1'eople talk and complain of "hard times" "money pressure," and all that kind of tiling. .Stiil everybody Reein to be breathing, eating, drinking, living. \\"c look np into the firmament 1 O 1 and can see no signs of any great troub- j le or calamity ahead. Tis trne, the Centcunial celebration is approaching ; the 1 'residential contest close ?t hand, but what of it ? we, the American peo ple, will be found equal to any emer gency. Political storms may assail us ; money panics temporarily oppress us, but we sail bravely through all such af flictions and come out like pure gold refined, purer and better. A kind pro vidence has tilled our store-houses, and barns ; the winter has been mild, salu brious, healthy ; the people happy and contented ; no very dark cloud is looming up to trouble our future. We will not 1 1 y to make trouble tor our selves ahead.

So we say now i to one and all, do your duty; do it fear- , lessly ; distress not yourselves about future events ; be true to yourselves ; grasp at opportunities as they occur ; ( be industrious, economical, sober, dis creet. The signs of the times arc noth ing to you ; the future is at present beyond your reach. You can t swim out of a mill poiul until you first fall in; v ait until you need your energies and ] then expend them on a real foe, not on an imaginary one.

I Harpku's Fkrky. ? It will be seen, from 1 lie following special dis patch to the Baltimore tliat the llouse Committee uii Military attairs has reported against the re establish ment of the National Armory at Har per's Ferry. We are sincerely sorry at this result ? sorrv for the people ot our entire coun ty, all of whom are interested in having the magnificent water power at Harper s Ferry utilized for manufacturing pur poses, and especially sorry are we for our credulous and long suffering friends at the Ferry, whose expectations have i been so unduly excited upou this sub ject a lid whose disappointment may be imagined in realizing the unwelcome fact, that "Hope told a flattering tale." \Va9H1NQT.?N. ? 11 le House commit- 1 tee on military affairs has decided ad- | verselv us to Hie expediency ot re- estab lishing a national Armory at Harpers Ferrv. The coiiiinittee say that they have felt a strong inclination to favor tiie re establishment of the armory at Harper's Ferry, not only because it was selected for that purpose by Washing ton, but on account of its healthy and delightful location, its vicinity to the capital, its magnificent water power, and the intelligence, skill and inventive powers which distinguished ils mechan ics during the time it was in operation. They say every feeling would prompt j them to restore the place to its original use if imperative consideration ot econ omy did not now forbid it. Had the application been made immediately af ter the close of the war it would have been more favorably considered than it can be at t his time. Hut extensive ' buildings have been erected at ltock Is land, 111-, ami a national armory estab lished there as a substitute for the pub lic works destroyed at Harper's Ferrv. The commitUe allude to the tact that within the last two years eight or nine of the arsenals of construction east ot the Mississippi have been discontinued, and are now used simply as depots for the care, preservation and issue of war like stores. They say that the opinion of many is that all the national anno- ! lies might with propriety be dispensed with, and reliance hereafter placed upon supplies furnished from the extensive pri\ate manufactories of the country. They do not undertake to concur in 1 micli a policy, but say that it presents a consideration worthy ot attention against incurring the expense ot an additional j armory or arsenal of "construction. In reference to the expediency of author izing the Secretary of War to repur- | chase the property at Harper's Ferry ?when sold under the decree of the court to satisfy the United States for a debt due for the purchase money, the com- j mil tee are of opinion that it is not ne- i cessary to vest any such power in the 1 Secretary ot War, as the existing law j gives such a power to the solicitor of ' the treasury, should he deem it for the interest of the government to exercise i that power in this particular case.

We clip the following inter esting article from an exchange pa per : ? There was to be a military execution away up above the heads of everybody in Harper's Ferry, on Bolivar heights, and with about a thousand others I went to wee it. Two soldiers had been ? convicted of desertion, and their death sentence approved by Gen. Sheridan. I skip the details. About twelve o\ Uck noon they found themselves on j their knee* in front of two cottins inside three sides of a hollow square of soldiers, with a tiring party two rods in front. j Their eyes were being bandaged ; three minutes more, I think, would have set- j tied their accounts with this world, when an orderly came galloping up that steep, muddy hill with a telegram. Gen. Stevenson, who commanded there, opened it. It was signed 'A. Lincoln,' and directed an indefinite suspension of j the sentence. A suspicion crossed my mind that we had been participating in a gotten-np dramatic entertainment, to produce a good moral effect on the sol- , diers present, particulatly the two most ; interested. In other words, I suspected | that this telegram had been receive^ by j Gen. Stevenson before the funeral j cortege left Harper's Ferry. I was on 1 the start' in those days, and was privileged to ask questions, so I waited on the genera! at his headquarters, two i hours after and inquired about it. lie assured me that my suspicions were un founded. "Hut the line front here to Baltimore is down and I had no reason to expect a dUpatch. How it got here I don't know. Certainly they would have been ' dead in a few minutes." The statement of the operator at 1 Baltimore, afttrward published, gave I intensity to the diainatic situation out on bleak Bolivar heights on that dismal February morning. The Presidents dispatch was received about ten o clock that morning, with the cipher ot the J War department to hurry it to Harper's | Ferry. For hours the line had been i down between that ami Baltimore ; there was no train t hat would be time ly. It was the judgment ot the opera tor that this ended the matter ; that the men must die. Yet an effort might be made to reach Harper's Ferry from the west. He made the trial ; he kept right on making it for an hour and a half. As he failed, and continued to tail, lis anxiety grew greater to save the doomed men. I dare not say how many thousand miles those words of the President traveled backward and for ward in that ninety minutes. They j went to New York, to Buffalo, to (Jin- | cinnati, Pittsburg, to Wheeling, and \ elsewhere, often returning like Noah s j dove of mercy, and as often sent out again. They reached Cumberland at , last, and thence flashed down to liar- j per s Ferry in time. A Centknnia i. Walking Club. ? We learn that a club is being formed in this city whose object is to proceed to the centennial at Philadelphia on foot. The members will be provided j with haversacks and carry their rations. ^ They will camp out from night to night on the route. Their line 01 march will I be from Norfolk to Petersburg, Peters- 1 burg to the battle-field around Rich- j mond, Richmond to Hanover Junction, i up the line ofthe Virginia Central rail- j road to Gordonsville, thence to Orange , Court- House, across the Rapid Ann to j Culpeper Court-House, from here to i Rappahannock Station, then following | the road to Warrenton, Ya., up to i Bristow Station, to Manassas, thence to Fait tax, from Fairfax they will proceed 10 Leesburg, from there to Whites ford, from thence they will proceed through .Maryland by the same route as taken by face's army, through Freder ick city, along the Cumberland \ alley to Crampton Gap, through it to liar- , pcr's Ferry, from this point to Shep herdstown, Ya., again across the Potomac river to Maryland, through Sharpsb urg to Boonsboro, through Hagerstown to Leitersburg into Pennsylvania, through Green castle, , Chambersburg, Fayetteville, Gettys burg, Harris burg and thence by the nearest route to Philadelphia. The club will be composed of a number of the old veterans of Lee's army, and will take this opportunity t<* visit the old battle-fields. They will carry with them a banner, on which will be em blazoned the "Noi folk Centennial Walk ir.g Club," and wear as a uniform the | old continental suit. ? Xurfolk 1'irgi nian. Gone West. ?

Of the one hundred known varieties of native woods, found in the forests of West Virginia, more than sixty speci mens ot different kinds have been ob tained by the State Board ot" Centennial .Managers, and have been properly pre pared for the approaching Exhibition. But as samples ot some thirty-three additional varieties are yet required for a lull representation of our indigenous trees, 1 most respectfully ask those of my fellow citizens, throughout the Slate, who take an intelligent interest in the Centennial, and who appreciate the opportunity it affords for making known the extent and variety of our natuial resources with a view to their development that they will do what they can, conveniently, to aid the State Board iu its efforts to have a complete collective display of West Virginia's woods, as well as of its agricultural, mi ning and manufacturing products ? the following being a list of those now , ueeded tor that purpose : Black Birch, lied Buckeye, Sweet Buckeye, Hop Hornbeam or I i on wood, Black Pine, White Pine, White Elm, Whahoo Elm, Blue Ash, Mountain Ash, Crab Apple, Balsam Fir, Black Fir, Sweet Gum, Hackberiy, Black Haw, Sea ley Bark Hickory, Holly, Leatherwood, ) White or Silver Maple, Black Mapie Blue Poplar, Arbor \ iue, Rhododen dron, Post Oak, Spanish Oak, Scarlet Oak, Swamp Oak, bellow Oak, W illow Oak, Briar Oak and Black Jack. In collecting and forwarding eamples of the above, care must be taken to ob serve the subjoined instructions of Prof. M. L. Maury, Director in Charge, here tofore published by the State Board, viz: "Collect the finest and largest trees of every variety, and from the butt end, saw oft a section, taking care to retain the bark intact. For trees having a diameter of four feet and less, | a section one foot thick is sufficient ; from four to six feet in diameter the j section should be eighteen inches, and above six feet in diameter, it should be two feet thick." In addition to these j sections or solid rings, as they may be j called, there is also wanted a block of one ? ftot cube of every variety of timber, cut 1 from the solid wood. [ 1 hese blocks are intended to be uniform with speci mens already prepared which are in book form, eleven inches by seven, and ' three inches thick, the bark being re- j taiueil on the part corresponding with the back of a bound volume, and the ; sides being polished to show the grain of the wood.] "All packages, boxes ! <fcc., for the Exhibition should be ad dressed to 'The State Board of Centen nial Managers ? W heeling \\ est \ ir ginia,' and should be marked with the contributor's name" * * * "Every- i thing shipped to Wheeling should be 1 by ordinary lreight.no/ by express," and | "the Board acting for the State, will, out ot an appropriation made therefor, pay all the expenses of transportation, : exhibiting, etc., after specimens are de- j livered at some point on a line ot pub- j lie transportation." * ? ? -tor | further information on any points rela- | ting to the collection and delivery, ad dress the Director in Charge, Prof. M. F. Maury, Wheeling, W. Va. Trusting that this appeal to the peo ple of our State will be promptly at tended to, 1 am, most respectfully, &c., ALEX. 11. BOTELER, U. S. Centennial Commissioner. Xear Shepherdstown, March 11, '7G. Papers In the State will please copy the above. EIMVAIt!> I.. i:SQ, Mr. Editor ? A great many tickets have appeared it) the various papers ot the State, containing the names of sev- | eral distinguished gentlemen for the va rious offices to be tilled at our next elec- j tion. Past experience has proved tl.at j we should be very careful in making our selections. Capable and honest men are needed, and it would be a great advantage to the people if the candidate tor Auditor has some experience. I know of no man in the State better qualified than the one whose name heads this article-. He has been chief Clerk in the office for the last live years, (often acting as Auditor pro tern.) His salary has only been sufficient for the support of his family, and by close econ omy to build a small residence in the city of Charleston. When the Capital was moved to Wheeling, he had the al ternative ot giving up his clerkship or going with it. Necessity compelled him to choose the latter, and not hav ing sufficient means was compelled to sell his house at a great sacriticc to enable him to go. The party owes something to such men, and when they have proved themselves capable and up right (as he has done) their claims should not be overlooked. Mr. Bill is a citizen ot Koane County, a well tried, ' true and trusty democrat, ever ready to give satisfaction to the humblest citi zens. Having business with the office, always kind and courteous, and I doubt not his nomination would be a tower ot strength to the State ticket. ONE WHO KNOWS HIM. fifcaT" Bcsy. ? The hens of this neigh borhood have not been standing around idle during the last lew weeks, judging from the quantity of eggs, we see iu the stores. They ineau business. Aocidknt. ? We regret to state ; that Mr. John Davis, of our town, while hewing posts, on Friday of last week, severely cut his foot, which will disable him for some weeks. B*3?~ C. Jc O. Canal. ? During the past week water has been let in the C. O. Canal, and in a day or two hun dreds ot boats will be plying that ?'ditch" which gives employment to thousands of persons. The boatmen of our town have been fixing up their "traps," getting ready for a lively busi ness during the coming summer, and we hope their fondest expectations may be realized. 8ST Weverton Mills, on the B. <fc O. , 1 tail road, below Harper's Ferry, was re- I cently sold at public sale, for $6030. i Purchased by Mr. Wairen Garrett. j GRANGER'S DEPARTMENT. | DeF" A called meeting of Potomac Grange, No. 16, will be held at tJillmy er's Mill, on Thursday the 16th, instant, for the purpose of receiving candidates lor membership of said Grange. Mem bers of the late Slack water Grange, de siring to become members ot this Grange, will also plciise attend this meeting. Importunt K evolution* ! In the proceedings of the County Council, published in our paper of this week, will be found two very important and significant llesolutioos. Judging I from the spirit and place where they were conceived, they mean to vindicate principle, regardless of the puerile criti cisms of outsiders. It would seem that the County Court was unwittingly induced to pass an or- | der at one of its sittings, giving to each I of its members the right to pass over the Turnpikes, within this county, free from the charge of toll ; aud it being | ascertained that a majority of the mag istrates are members of the Grange, which order holds it to be a violation of sound morals for public officers to assume illegal or doubtful privileges, this Council promptly requests the Court to recind its action. The other resolution addressed itself to the independence and manhood of the i order, and looks to the carrying out of 1 an important idea in the incipient for mation of Granges, namely : Some co operative system to cheapen the freight upou the products of their labor ; this it is contended, is practical in several ways, especially in this location. First, ' by honest legislation it can be controll ed within the borders of our own State; secondly, by establishing a cheap trans portation ? their own wagons, boats, etc., ? such as broke the power of mo nopolies in California ; thirdly by di verting trade to competing lines of roads. This sort of action on the part of Grangers, manifests a persistent and determined spirit to fight it out, for what they conceive to be just aud right. coi.vrv < ?l M IL! The County Council met at Forest Ilall, near Moler's Cross Roads, Satur day, March 4th, 1S70. After the dis cussion ot the question ot the adoption of a "Pomona Grange," the following Resolutions were ottered, and unani mously adopted : ? Resolved, That this meeting hereby extend to the Editor ot the Shepherds town Register its hearty and sincere thanks, for his liberality in extending the use ot his valuable paper, through which to publish the proceedings ot their meetings. Resolved, That we deem it to be our duty, and so recommend to each mem ber of our order, to use his or her best efforts in increasing its circulation, not only in our county and State, but in the adjacent States ot Virginia and Alary land. Resolved, That the "State Executive Committee' be requested to provide means to defray such necessary expen ses as the "State Lecturer ' may have to incur, in visiting different portions ot our State to lecture for the good of the order, and to build up weak places. Resolved, That some doubt exists as to the legal propriety of the magistrates ot our County voting to themselves the right of free transit over the Turn pikes within our County, they are here by requested to repeal said order made by them. Resolved, That with a view of put ting into practice, the fundamental prin ciples, of our organization, namely, econ omy and co-operatiou, that this Grange appoint a committee to correspond with the members of our order, in the neigh boring Counties of Berkeley, Clark and Frederick, with the view of concerting a plan ot transporting the products of our soil to the city markets. Said Com mittee consist of Win. II. Lewis, Esq., Ivabletown; Col. It. \V. Baylor, Thom as Lock, Summit Point; Geo. Wiltshire, Leetown; John S. Ileiikle, llalltown, Moses W. IJurr, Dutfields; Lee 11. Mo ler, M. Page Andrews and John Kep linger, Shepherdstown. Resolved, That at all subsequent meet ings of the Council, one hour shall be de voted to public addresses tor the good ot the Order, and to which all persons desiring to connect themselves with the Order are most cordially invited. Council adjourned to meet 1st Satur day in April, at 10 o'clock, at Wiltshire's school-house. J NO. II. STRIPER, Sec'y. | County Grance Meeting. ? Dele gates from the several subordinate Granges P. of II. of Berkeley county, ' met at the hall ot Tuscarora Grange on Saturday, Feb. 26, for the purpose ot electing officers tor the ensuing year, and i'or the transaction of business relat ing to the interests of the Order. Every grange in the county we believe was represented, and the occasion was one of exceeding interest to the delegates. Mr. C. T. Butler of Jefferson was pre sent aud addressed the meeting upon matters ot moment to the organization. Mr. B. is a very pleasant speaker, fully posted upon matters which concern the interests of his fellow farmers and his speech upon this occasion was highly | complimented. Upon the conclusion of the address the lady members of Tuscarora grange laid a sumptuous and elegant entertainment, including all that was excellent and appetising, to which the grangers did fuil and ample justice ? the writer of this, likewise, thereby taking his first and most strengthening of grange degrees. Every one present enjoyed this the social part of the grange, and tho* among the least of the purposes ot the organization, it has its uses, because it is symbolical of the brotherhood of husbandry. After dinner the delegates resumed their business meeting, and, we, not being prepared to take the necessary degrees entitling us to further acquain tance with the ritual of proceedings, withdrew :n good order, mentally de termining that if we canuot get to be a full fledged granger, we shall at least al ways stand ready to till our place in the first degree. The lollowing are the names of tne officers elected tor the ensuing year : George O. Sperow, Master: Thornton Ilenshaw, Overseer ; J. NN . Curtis, , Lccturer ; S. is. Burus, Steward ; M. V. Small, Asst. Steward ; D. F. Hott, Chaplain ; W. T. Noll, Treasurer; J. W. B. Evans, G. Keeper; Mrs. C. J. J Weaver. Ceres; Miss Kate Cushwa, Pomona; Miss Emma Evans, Elora; Mis. L. V. Noll Lady Steward; Thorn ton Henshaw, \V. T. Noll and Daniel Stuckey, Executive Committee. ? Mar tiiisliurg Statesman. Daef "Aunt Keziah, are you going to town to buy any Garden Seeds." 4*Xo, indeed, Liza Jane, no need of my buy ing any seeds this year? last spring I went to Jlerr tfc Entler's and bought I). M. Ferry's Garden Seeds and planted them ? we had a plentiful supply of vegetables all the season, fur our fami ly, and some to send to our neighbors ? who did not buy 1). M. Ferry's seeds. After which I saved seed enough to plant this season, myself, and some to give to my daughters ? Belinda and Ilannah. So tell all the neighbors it they want to get rid of this everlasting buving of ?

The music-loving por tion of our community had the op- j portunity of attending a rare treat, at the Concert given by the ladies of the Episcopal church, in the College Hall, 1 on Friday night.

Xeill and Cor- ! deli aud Master K. Da\is Shepherd. Those who considered themselves | judges, in the audience, say it was the best entertainment of the kind thai, was ever giveu in Shepherdstown. Many, indeed most of the pieees both vocal and instrumental, were called for again j by the audience. The concert was ' given for the benefit of the Sunday School, and was highly creditable to the musical taste of both managers and performers, and we congratulate our i town that we have so delightful a hall for such a purpose and know that we express the wish of many fur a repeti- ! tion of the concert at no distant day. * Deaths.

There is generally, even in the most delicate constitution, a latent reserve of vital euergv. The medical stimulant of all other? best calculated to rouse this vis inertia is HoetettersStomaeh Bitters. The impulse which that inestimable prepara tion lends to the action of the various or gans insures a more vigorous ana con se (iueutly healthy discharge of their vari ous functions than they would be capable of without its aid, and the "fillip to na ture" thus communicated Is never exces sive, but always equable and regular. Just s? much stimulation is imparted as is required, and no more. In respect ol the healthtul gentleness ot their action, t!ie Bitters are immeasurably superior to the unmedieated stimulants ol commerce, which,, though they produce a powertul ty resuscitating effect for a few minutes, are invariably followed by a reaction, cor responding in depression to their primal effect. They uxcit" so much at first that nature is wearied by the efl.?rt. and is apt to .-ink under the exhaustion. Physicians who have made the stimulative action ot the Bitters the subject of experiment, de clare their decided preference of them over any other similar article. An equ.1l ly high opinion is entertained ol their regulating qualities by medical men who are acquainted with "their tonic etfeeti. They speedily rectify hi? irregular habit of body, digestive oruer<, and delinquen cies of the urinary organs, which added to their strengthening intlueoce, renders n valuable aid in dyspepsia, ctrnKlipu'lon, biliary derangements and wcakue*> or ir ritation of the bladder or kidneys.
