STAR OF THE NORTH,
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16, 1859.
IT is FKARD that the grass and clover crops
in many parts of this county, have been
slightly injured by the successive freezing
ami thawing of the past w inter.
WE HAVE been requested to announco
that there will be preaching in the Court
House of this place by REV J. R. SHANAFELT
on next Sabbath at 3 o'clock.
FOR THE LAST few days we have had the 1
pleasure of adding quite a respectable num
ber of new names to our subscription list.
This is encouraging to any publisher—the
adding ol new names to his list. We still
ean find room for a few* more, and signs in
dicate that we are a going lo have them.
WE notice that our Merchants, Mechan
ics and business men generally, are pre
paring lo do a more extensive business, the
4he coming year, than at any previous time 1
heretofore We will notice a lew next week.
THE MOVING season will soon be in vogue,
when many changes will lake place. A
lover of reading very seldom tails to notify
the printer, of whom lie takes a paper, that
he has or is about to change his resilience.
In our short publishing career we have
found this to be invariably the case.
Ma. A. C. MENSCH has removed the Ex
press Office to the Stote Room of Mr. Geo.
Weaver, a few doors above the STAR Office, i
Mr Mensch designs, in connection with the
,Express business, retailing flour and feed, j
and asks a liberal patronage from the public. '
With these two branches combined he may
be able lo realize a good livelihood.
IN the Senatorial proceedings of the 10th
inst. we learn the following: "On motion
of Hon. R. Keller, Senate Bill No. 627. "An
Act to widen the eastern extension of Third
Street, llloomsbnrg, Columbia County. On
the final passage of the bill the yeas and
nays resulted in sixteen affirmative ami sev
en negative So the question was deter
mined in the affirmative.
YOUNG married men should not frequent
places of bad repute and worthlessly spend
all their small change and then go home in
the stilly hours of the night and thrash their
wives because they have nothing in the
house lo eaf.
O for a rod in some strong man's hand,
To lash the rascals through the land.
WE ARE enjoying most splendid weather
at present writing, and it is hoped will con
tinue. The time of year is fast approach
ing when we should have fine weather, and
the plough shear buried 4 or 5 inches in the
soil in preparing it for the reception of the
seed grain. The farmer's winter recess is
about gone. The song will soon be, "hold
(he plow or drive."
DANVILLE HOTEL.- -This well conducted
house of public accommodation under llin
superinletulency ol the proprietor, JOHN
DKKN, JR., is daily gaining golden opinions,
and fast approaching the bight of populari
ty on theca alogue of good ami well manag
ed houses The accommodations al this
hotel are excellent, and well calculated to
-court public favor. With the many advan
tages to the traveling public, the charges
•are moderate.
MR. DAVID LOWKSHEMJ, the only man in i
Columbia county, who keeps a good and '
lull supply of Ready-tnade Clothing, lias |
just returned from New York and Philadel- j
plua, with his spring supply. One of the !
principal advantages in dealing with Mr. j
LOWKNBGRG is, that you are sure of not being J
deceived. An honest man and a gentleman ,
will certainly be treated with
fairness and courtesy in dealing with him.
A BABTIST CIIURCII is under contract for its I
erection in this place on Third Street. We j
learn that it will he a frame building of or
dinary size. The site for this edifice ip rath
er a good one, and if the citizens succeed in
getting Third Street widened at the eastern
extention, with a splendid church-building
upon it, much will be added to the appear
ance ol that part of the town.
ANOTHER NEW M. D.—At the close of the
winter session of the Pennsylvania Medi
cal College, in Philadelphia, a few weeks
since, Mr. JOSEPH R. EVANS, from Colum
bia county, graduated with the highest hon
ors and received the regular degree for the
practice of medicine. Mr. Evans is a very
worthy and studious young man; he has la
bored faithful and hard to attain his new po
sition. He has received a thorough training
in the medical science, at the hands of one
of the best faculties in the State, and is now
fully prepared for the practice of medicine.
May success attend him wherever lie may
launch his ba'que.
Columbia county is pretty well provided
for in the way of physcians ; she can boast
both of their good qualities and number.
WAGON MARINO.—This is a branch of bus
iness which is more extensive than is thought
to be, because the work, when turned out,
is at once put to common use, until the say
ing, "common ns a wagon," has attained
mffbhnse. Still it is a branch of business
that sa just as essential as any carried on—
indeed to the farmer, it is as indispensible
as Being indispensible, it at
once mtX|§ the necessity great for having
one that mßjpll the strength with combined
lightness, nMjil.tfr-" to make it last. To
make it this end much improve
ment has bedfttpde in the manufacturing
and style of iKßjSicie. in this place are
several shops, which we are partic
ularly directing our mind|o those of SJ.OAN
& SON and S. A. WILSON, Main and Mar
ket Streets, who turn out number of
wagons each year, all ofNMich will paßs
muster nny where, and as eviTOfccu of which
those wanting to purchase a wagdn, will do
well to call and examine their
on hand.

Hvlloway's Ointment and Pills—Spurious
preparations —Counterfeits of these celebrat
ed remedies may bo instantly detected
Unless the words "Hollow-ay, New York
and London " are distinguishable as a wa
ter-mark on each leaf of the book of direc
tions accompanying the preparations, the
articles are Iraudulent. Erysipelas, or St.
Alimony's fire, salt rheum, neuralgia, and
acute or chronic rheumatism, are among
the external diseases for which Ihe Oint
ment is an absolute oblilerant; and indi
gestion, with all ils painful concomitants,
it effectually disposed of by Ine use of the
Pills. They are at once cathartic, disin
fectant, alterative, ar.d restorative.
J FOR FRMALES. —It is a lamentable fact
> that so large a number of Females are af
flicted with Irregularities, either relused or
suppressed, which rapidly and surely under
mine their health, shorten their lives, and
nlttimps render them unfit for those duties
I in life for which an all-wise Creator ba =
I formed them. This state of things need not

J They are composed of materials, harmless
; to Ihe most delicate constitution, put efli-

S originating from irregularities. They are
I no Nostrum, but clai.n for themselves vir
; lues resulting from the use of those most
j valued remedies prescribed by the highest-i
medical authority, Ancient or Modern,
j Many Females give way to despondency,

eline. To such we would confidently re

ROXBURY MASS.
Dear Madam—The reputation of the Med
ical discovery, in curing all kind of humors,
is so well established by the unanimous
voice of all who have ever nsed it, that I
need nol say any thing on the subject, as
the most skilful physicians and the most
careful Druggist in the country are unani
mous in its praise.
In presetting the Medical Discovery lo
your notice, I do it with a foil knowledge of
its curative power, in relieving all, and cur
ing most o( those diseases to which you are
unfortunately so liable. The most excruci
ating disease to an affectionate mother,
NURSING SORE MOUTH,
Is pared astl l>y a miracle) your own tem
per is restored lo its natural sweetness, and
your babe from short and Iretful mips so
calm and sweet plumbers; and the medical
discovery becomes a fountain of blessing lot
your husband and houshold,
lu the advanced stages ol
€3 A N K F R
il extends to the stomach, causing
D Y S P K P tS I A,
which is nothing but canker on the stomach
then to the intestines and
Kidneys,
creating a sinking, gone leeling, and an in.
difference even lo lite cares of your family.
Your stomach is
RAW AND INFLAMED,
your food distresses you, and yon can only
lake certain kinds, and even of that your
system does not get half the nourishment it
contains as the acrtmonous fluid of Ihe cank
er eats it up; then your complexion loses its
bloom and becornessallow and greenish, and
your best day is gone. For wain of nnnrishj
tnent your system becomes loose and flabby,
and tbe fibres of your body becomes relaxj
ed. Titer. Inflows a Iraitt of disease which
the Medical Discovery is peculiarly adapted
to CURE; Palpitation of Ihe heart, pain in
the side, weakness of Ihe soir.e and small of
ihe back, pain of the hip joint when you re
tire, irregularity ol the bowels, and also, that
most excruciating of disease, the
S" IKES.
How many thousands ol poor women are
suffering from this disease and pitting away
| a miserable life, and their next door neigh
bor does not know the cause, I wish lo im
! pregs on your mind that good old proverb,
I "An ounce ol prevention is better than a
1 pound of cure." In the
Medical Discovery
yon have both Ihe preventive and the cure,
with this ureal and good qttaltiv, that it will
never under any circumstances, do you any
itijury.
No change of diet ever necessary—eat the
best y on eau gel and enough of it.
Directions lor use.—Adults one table spoon
ful per day. Children over le:i years dessert
spoonful. Children from five lo eight years,
tea spoonful. As no directions can he appli
cable lo all constilutious, take sufficient to
operate on thi bowels twice a day.
Yours truly,
DONALD KENNEDY.
