Messrs. R. Hob & Co. have our thanks
for the presentment of a beautiful Catalogue,
'exhibiting the different Printing Presses,
Viih other articles belonging to a printing

Gobey's Ladi's Book for September has
been received. It is a handsome number,
maintaining its well earned reputation, that
of being the best Lad ides' book extant. It
enjoys a wide 'circulation, probably more
extended than any other journal of the kind.
It is published in Philadelphia by Louis A.
Godey; terms S3 per annum for single sub
scription. By club it can be had considera
bly cheaper.
Of the first page of this week's edition
can be seen a brief and truthful sketch of
oar heroic candidate for the Vice Presi
dency,, Col. Joseph Li-e. of Oregon. The
Col. would make, no doubt, most an excel
lent Vice President ; he is a good states
man as welt as a warrior of high standing.
We ask for this sketch of Air. Lane's life a
careful and attentive perusal by every read
er of the Star.
Drowned. A little girl, aged two years
and three months, was accidentally drown
ed in a rain barrel, at the residence of Mr,
Heath, in this borough, on Monday morn
ing of last week. The barret was sunk in
the ground and hence easily accessible to
the child.- The name of the unfortunate lit
tle victim, was Eleanor Minerva, a daughter
of Jos. K. and Ada C. Norcross, of Phila
delphia, who, with its mother, was paying
visit ' to this place. Danville Democrat.
Subscribe. How often do we hear men
excuse themselves from snbscribing to a
paper or a periodical, by saying they have
no time to read. When we hear a man
tbusexcdse himself, we conclude .that be
has never found time to confer any substan
tial advantage either upon -his family, hi
country, or himself. To hear a freeman
thus express himself,is truly humiiiating,and
we can form no other opinion than that
uch a roan is of lit la importance to society.
Lackawanna & Bloomsburg R. R In
to day's Star will be found the Time Table
of this road, showing clearly the hours of
arriving at and departing from the different
Depots along the line, which is quite a con
venience for the traveling public to know
when they can go and when they can stay.
The manner in which this road is being
managed is well calculated to command
confidence and respect from the public.
Jos. N. Scr anton is destined to become a
-popular President over this road. Col. M.
W. Jackson, the efficient and gentlemanly
"Superintendent, is doing good service in his
position. .
, On Tuesday last, between the hours of
11 and 12 o'clock a mn John Whipple and
Clark Price, prisoners in our county jail,
made a successful attempt in gelling out.
They filed off their chains, and by driving
wooden pegs in the wall they succeeded in
.-getting upon the top of it, thence to the
aground outside by the assistance of a rope
fastened at the lop of the wall. Whipple
tgot down all safe, bnt Price came only part
way down upon the rope when he let lose
und came down upon, the ground bo hard as
to break one of his legs just above the
inkle. Whipple run about half a mile,
hotly pursued by several of our citizens,
when be was overtaken in the act of swim
ing across Fishingcreek. Price's limb was
eet by Dr. Ramsey, of this place. ...

talk and speculation over the different pat

-"best and tha cheapest." We are frequently

.any manufacturing purposes,
decidedly, the best. .Fot family use, if you
intend paying from fifty to one hundred
dollars', Wheeler & Wilson's is preferable,

December 28, 1859.-tf.' ;
; Attorney at )LaTr, '
Bloomsburg, baring purchased the ex
clusive right of the above valuable Impro
ved Cheap Patent Sewing Machine, for
the County of Columbia, will be happy to
supply their friends with the article lor the
accommodation of themselves and families.
The following are some of the superior
advantages ibis implement possesses, viz :
1. It sews from 400 to 600 tight stitches
per minute.
2. Double thread Machines are from the
more complicated character of their mech
anism invariably managed and threaded
with more or les difficulty ; not so with
RAYMOND'S, a child can manage it in two
hours, and it is threaded easier ttiaa a com?
mon needle.
3. One of the most valuable features of
this Machine, is the smalluess and the
compactness of its mechanism.
4. It can be attached to a board, table or
stand, in operating order,- and removed in
less than half a minute.
5. It greatly economizes the thread, and
yet produces a seam, sufficiently strong for
any work lor which it is intended, a qual
ification not known to all kinds of Sewing
Machines. .
6. No human hand is capable of produ
cing a seam so regular and systematic.
The seam is so strong if well done, that the
6t.-ongect material will ' tear before the
seam will give way.
7. Among the array of Pa'ent Sewing
Machines, there arc none so cheap hh.I
durable as Raymond's Patent, but no Ma
chine is adapted to all kinds ol uuik as
experience has proven. There are prhnps
none so realy useful, doing such a variety
"of wore for the immediate ue of the fam
ily circle, and at such a moderate price, as
8. The operator can shape hit wmn just
as he pleases, waves, leaves and iiuwers,
etc., can be represented or imiialed.
9. It is particularly adapteu lo all kinds
of stitchicg such as gentlemen's slmt,
bosoms, ristbands, collars, etc., and all
kinds of ladies' sewing, including silks,
lawns, delaines, calicoes, dusters, etc., ex
cepting for men's heavy wear, this Machine
is rather too light ol construction.
10. But we all admit, that the advantage
to health, and principally to the vision or
eyesight, iniiuced by ll.e use of Sowing
Machines, surpasses infinitely all oiher advantages-.
;i. This Machine fastens the seam al
ways itself, but if the operator wishes it
unfastened or open, there is a way lor it
too, thus you can have il fastened or not,
as you please, which is, sometimes, espe
cially for beginners, a very favorable cir
cumstance. If the seam is left unfastened,
you can draw it out in three seconds and
6ave the thread.
For sale by the nndersigned, at their re
spective residences, in Bloomsburg, who
will put the Machine in operation and give
all necessary instruction.

The World Unanimous!
The- virus of disease often makes its way
to the internal organs throngh the pores of
the skin. This penetrating Ointment, melt
ing under tbe hand as it is rubbed in, is ab
sorbed through the same channels, and,
reaching the seat of inflamation, promptly
and invariably subdues it, whe her located
in the kidnevs the liver, the lungs, or any
ether important organ. It penetrates the
surface lo ibe interior, through tbe countless
tubes ibat communicate with Ihe skin, as
summer rain passes into the fevered earth,
diffusing its cool and regenerating influence.
Every species of exterior irritation is
quickly reduced by the ami inflammatory
action of this Ointment. Angry Eruptions,
uch as salt Rheum, Eryxipelas, Tetter,
Ringworm, Scald Head, Nettle, Rasb, Scab
ies, or Itch) &c., die out, to return no more,
under this application. Hospital experi
ence in all parts of the World proves its
infallibility in diseases of the skin, the mus
cles, the joints and the glands.
The effect ot this unrivalled external
remedy upon Scrofula, and other virulent
ulcers and sores, almost , maraculous. It
first discharges the poison which produces
suppuration and proud flesh, and thus Ihe
cures which its healing properties afterwards
complete are safe as well as permanent
In cases of Ihe fracture of the bones, in
juries caused by steam explosions, Bruises,
Burns, Scalds, Rheumatism, Stiffness of the
Joints, and contraction of the sinews, il is
emp!o)ed and warmly recommended by
the faculty. This, marvellous remedy has
been introduced by its inventor in persons
into all the leading Hospitals of Europend
no private household should be without tt.
The Medical Staff of tbe French and Eng
lish Armies in the Crimea officially signed
their approval of HOLLOWAY'S Ointment,
as the most reliable dressing for sabre cots,
slabs, and gun-6hot wounds. It is also
used by the surgeons of the Allied Navies.
Both the
Ointment and Pills should be used
in the following cases :
Mercurial Eruotions,
Chapped Hands,
Swelled Glands
Sore Legs,
Sore Breasts,
Sore Heads,
Sore Throats,
Sore of al! kinds,
Salt Rheum,
