This kind of wort D always intended to be nt*h, but w. have waited for months on some of n and for years on others. lj r e runs! han thett bills paid. Had we no debts o; our own, we might give a hundred vears' grace to those who owe us. Bul we must pay our debts, and, hence, wc are compelled to collect from those who are indebted to us. ihe books oi ]', F. Meyers are also unsettled and must be' closed up. We are driven to -ending bills to all. irrespective of per -ains und we hope that we will not be compelled to resort to any thing more stringent. But we must hare oar hooks Iqaared up, and a word to the wise is sufficient. i & ... JL i METEORS.— This seems to bean in exhaustible subject. Even the poets have waked up to its importance, as witness the following effusion poured out for our columns: November winds were blowing cold. When, in a country town, 'twas told [f weep!'' would >t:iy up all night They would be sure to see a light— Meteors! That such ft light ne'er fell on man, Before or since the world began ; I'jjg shooting star.- (, t Thirl\-three Would sink int.. oblivion's sea. Meteors! Then no one knew that they would erne, \rid so the sight was missed by some ; But all in 'sixty-six should see What sort of things these star- might be. Meteors! Y r men are -r> much wiser now— Thcv know the where, the when, and how. And all that people had to do. Was keep awake and calmly view- Meteors ! From Mud town up to Gravel Hill. Awake they kept, and hourly still pid folks explore the quiet sky. Easter to give the signal rv— Meteors But vainly sought f-r - "toe coimn-.tion Among the isles of that blue ocean ; For -'radiant jaunts' about the Lion, Or from the girdle of Or. >n. Meteors! To hurry matters up in town — Perhaps to hurry meteors down— The village bells were loudly run g, Then every blind was open tiling ! Meteors I From east to we f. from north to -oath. Wtrh straining eye and open mouth. The people turned themselves about, A.- from the steeples rose the shout — Meteors The stars, instead of falling down, tat winking at the folks in town. Thinking, from all that they had seen. That some of them were rather green. Meteors! When still ab ve ttiev kept th !rpl..ccs. The peoj.le turned with angry faces, And hr.iing it was pretty coi l. They stamin'd their ! .-r-. exclaiming— Sold ' Meteors' In sleep the morning hours were spent, And when the sun. as usual, sent Above the hills his rosy beams. The people muttered in their dreams, Meteors ' NOT APPRECIATED. —It is a very common thing for -omcpcrsoiisb. grum ble at the price they pay for their local ptiperaml their advertising—invariably ending with the remark, "that is given in charity, for they never receive any benefit therefrom." An exchange com menting upoiitl. 'sulijc t, truthfully re marks : "New-papers by enhancing the value of property in tlieir neighborhood and giving the localities in which they are publish" l a reputation abroad, benefit all Mich grumblers, particularly if they are merchants or r- il estate owners, tarice the amount yearlyof the meagre >uni they [ay for their support. Besides, every public spirited citizen has a lauda ble pride in having a paper of which he is not asliained. A good-looking, thriv ing sheet helps to -a-ll property, gives character to the locality, and in all re spects is desirable as a public conve nience-. If fr uu any cause the matter in the editorial or local columnsshould not lie quite up to your.standard, do not cat it aside and pronounce it of no ac count until you .re satisfied that there has not b. n mor" labor bestowed upon i. than is paid for. And it must not be supported in a spirit-of charity either, but b.v:!"-o you feel it a necessity to support, i'i. loi-a] f.ress is the 'power that moves the people.'

A HINT TO LADIES.— An eastern eo- temporary, who has evidently been shoved into the mud, and also been in danger of having his eye put out by the tip of an umbrella arm, takes revenge in the following language:—"Ladies, when two of you are walking side by side, taking up every inch of the cross , walk, and theday is rainy and the mud . deep, doiPt think of such a thing as for . one of you to step behind the other, so . as to allow one of the "lords of crea tion" (what a misnomer) to pass by you dry shod, but always do as you did f —crowd him off into the mud, and keep your umbrellas bolt upright, too; it's no difference to you if he has to hold his at arm's length away from him to avoid a collison with yours; • and then it looks so lady-like and be coming for you to assert your superior ity upon every such occasion." LOOK OUT FOR TIIKM.—We learn, says the (ireensburg Art/us, that well dressed, smooth-tongued scamps are traveling over the country, having with them a model hay and manure loader with which they are gulling farmers outrageously. Their mode of opera tion is to visit the principal farmers, exhibit their model, sell a right to use it, and give an order tin a manufactu j ring establishment, where they pretend to have a contract for the manufacture j of the implement, receiving in exchange the fanner's note, which they immodi | ately convert into money, at a discount and then elearout. It is probable that some of the patent-right venders will visit this county, and farmers should exercise due vigilance to detect them. EPISCOPAL, CHURCH AND LOTS, — The foundation walls of the Episcopal Church here have just been put up, and preparations will be made during the winter for putting up the sujierstrue jin the spring. The remain-of the dead ! formerly buried in the old church lots, on I\?nn street, have been removed to the cemetery,.and a monument is in tended to lie placed over llieni. The lots are now in the market for sale, and can lie purchased for a moderate price, rile Will has been made secure by a recent act of the Legislature. A MISSING MAN FOUND.—The [ Gneensburg Argus -ays the skeleton I of a man named John Orlim, was found in a coal mine in Sewickley town ship, Westmoreland county, a short time since. lie suddenly disappeared some two years since, and his friends never heard anything of him until the finding of the skeleton, which was identified by discoveringa handkerchief on which hi-name was written, and al so bv parts of his clothing. The mys tery as to the manner of his death has uot been solved. ! CONDUCTORS IN LlMllO.—Nearly all . the conductors on the Pennsylvania j Railroad have been arrested forembez | /lenient of funds belonging to the com pany. We always regarded this class : of people as the most scrupulously hon | est persons in existence. llow could a man be dishonest who will not let a pt rmiie-- individual ride a mile at the Company's expense, and who refuses ; to take any money but sjiecieand green- I backs for farts ? — • COXVERSION <>FSKVEX-THIBTIES.— | Parties desiring to convert seven-thir > tie- into five-twenty coupon bonds, are reminded that all conversions on and . after December I, will be made in live- j twenties, bearing interest from Janua ■ | ry 1, next, and on transmitting or ad i justing their seven-thirties, they will > make up the interest account to that; date. • BAN K NOTE PA PEKTAX ABLK.— The i Commissioner of Internal Revenue, in j ■answer to an interrogatory from As-j se-sor Martin of this District, as to whether bank note paper is exempt' from taxation, answers: "Bank note j paper, not being regarded by this office as printing paper, within the meaning of the law, is held liable to a tax of j three per centum ad valorem." TIIAXKSGIVIXG. —Last Thursday, 29th tilt., appointed by the President j as a day of Thanksgiving, was duly ob-erved by our people. The stores and places of business were closed. Rev. H. lleckerman preached in the Presbyterian Church, and Rev. A. J. Barrow in the Court Mouse. The day was disagreeable, rain falling from ; early morn till night. ♦ i A MAX, stopping his paper, wrote to theeditor: "I think folk-attend tospend their inunny for pajters; my dad didn't, and every body says lie was the intelli gvntist man in the country, and had the smartest family of boys that everdugged tutors."

Peterson & Brothers, Philadelphia, have in press and will publish on Saturday, Decem ber loth, a new book by Mrs. Emma 1). E. N. Southworth, entitled "The Bride ot Llewellyn," which will, beyond all doubt prove to be the most popular 1 and successful work that has ever been written by her, for she is beyond all question the most powerful female writer in America, if not in the world. No one ever read a chapter of one of her works, without wishing to read the whole book, and none ever read one of her books without admiring the rare genius of its author, and wishing that she might soon write another. Her scenes are life-pictures, her incidents are lounded on facts, and her senti ments are characterized by a single pur ity both of conception and expression. She lias the rare faculty of saying what she means, and of saying it in such a manner that her meaning cannot he misinterpreted. In short she possesses in an eminent degriv those qualifica tions which are the peculiar preroga tives of a good writer; and while she delights the reader's imagination with her descriptive beauty, sheappiieshome truths to his understanding with the force of rational convict ion. The "Bride of Llewellyn" will be welcomed by all such readers especially; and those who have never read the work- of this gift ed woman should not fail to buy and read this new novel by this gifted American authoress. / GODEY'S LADY'S BOOK.—The De cember number of "Gotley" is on our table.

IJUBLISH E D TH IS DA Y— ANN S. STEPHENS' NEW BOOK ! THE SOLDIER'S ORPHANS. By Mrs. Ann S. Stephens, author of "Fashion A Famine,' - The Gold Brick," "The Old Homestead," "Silent Struggles." "MaryDerwent," "Rejected Wife," "The Heiress," "The Wife's Secret," etc. This new book, by Mrs Ann S. Stephens, has been pronounced by all to he by far the best aud most interesting work ever written by her. Itap. reared in monthly instalments in "Peterson's Magazine" during the last year, having been com pleted in the December number, where it proved to be the most popular, powerful, and successful novel that has ever appeared in that Magazine, | aud it is now published complete and unabridged, I in one large duodecimo volume, uniform with the "Gold I.rick," Fashion and Famine.'' and other works of Mrs. Ann S. Stephens, published by us. It will no doubt prove to be tbc most popular work that has ever before been written by this talented American authoress. Mrs Stephens has justly become a favorite with all American readers of prose fiction, and the an nouncement of a new work from her graceful pen is cheerful uewS to thousands of readers. And there is a rare treat in store for thetn, for in "The Soldier's Orphans." Mrs. Stephens has, if any thing, eclipsed all her former efforts. There is less redundancy of scene and action, but there is far more anir-tic excellence, and an elaboration of causes and effects, attainable only by practised writers. The action of this new novel transpires in Philadelphia, and beyond the limits of the city, the authoress does not permit herself to stray. Tho time selected by Mrs. Stephens is recent, the late war,and she pictures with vivid distinctness the do

mestic suffering and sacrifices entailed by, and made for, the gra-d and heroic struggle for na tional unity. The plot is one of absorbing interest, the characters are graphic transcripts from real life, strongly individualized, and the contrasts formed by their individual peculiarities, mental and physical, lend a rare charm to this last and most finished of Mrs. Stephens' books." "The Soldier's Orphans" is published complete in one large duodecimo volume. Price $1.60 in paper; or $2.00 in cloth. MRS ANN S. STEPHENS' OTHER WORKS.
