PROP. ROGERS' Lectures TIk
very stormy and dkngrecable nature
f the vreatheT lt Saturday evening,
prevented many who desired to attend,
from listening to the lecture which
was delivered hy I'rcfajsor Roger in
the Methodist Church. Those wl o
heard the lecture, speak In glowing
tenia it, aim) feci tint they were
amply compensated for tlielr time, ex
posurc to the rain, and two biu the
price of admission, The subject of
the Professor's lecture on Sunday
evening, vras to prove the existence of
a God. Tlie subject was mo.-t clearly
and ably managed. By convincing
logic, be llr-t swept away the strong
arguments used by atlieists against the
doctrine and then struck out into the
region of proof, which nature througl
science, by analogy, most clearly re
veals, and man's Intuition confirm, of
Uw existence of a First Cause, divine
aid spiritual in Hi; essence. TIm
Trofessor's delivery was pleasing and
animated, and what would have been
dry logic, was beautified with occa
sional touches of (lament rhetoric,
lie itlo lecture again, in one month,
and we hope our people generally wilj
patronise tlie pay lecture, especial ; ,
a the moneys received, beyond pay
ing the traveling expenses of the Pro
feasor, and the incidentals, are to go
into the treasury of the Library Association.
To Elect. As X. il.Cranor, Esq.,
ecnt hi Ms resignation as Mayor of the
city at tlie hut meeting of the City
Council (Kcv. Mr. Sweeney, elect:
Mayor at the last city election, refits
tug to qualify), our burg Is now with
out a Mayor, and it becomes the duty
Of the Council, under the Charter, to
elect (aid officer. The amended City
Charter, Section Six, reads: "The
Mayor and Aldermen shall compose
the Common Council of said city, ami
at any meeting shall have exclusive
power to provide for the election and
qualification of officers, and for filling
all vacancies in office," etc. Candi
dates for the pasish should announce
themselves at once there's nothing
like taking time by the forelock. Go
for it the man who can control tlie
most votes in the Council will doubt
less wear the purple.
Thief Arrested. A few days
since a man by tlie name of Douglas--was
arrested at Ilarrishurg, charged
with stealing a suit of clothes, five
dollars in gold, three or four dollars ;n
silver, and a pair of sleeve-buttons,
amounting in all to about a forty dol
lar steal. He arrived in this city on
Monday last, in charge of the Deputy
City Marshal of Ilarrishurg, Mr
Levi Douglass, and was lodged in tlie
County Jail. Thus it Is our new jail
has a tenant.
A Fair Tuts Oct. Our neighbor
of the Democrat Jast week issued an
urgent call for the Democracy to meet
at tlie Court lion, on the evening of
the 8th inrt., for the purpose of form
ing a Democratic club. Of course our
Democratic friends turned out mt nmte.
ami the enthniasm was something to
warm the heart even of a good Re
publican. As we were not present we
get the outlines of the proceedings
from a friend. He reports that there
were three Democrats and two Re
publicans present. The meeting was
organized hy the election of Dr. Alcx-

Temperance Meetikq Tuesday
EvKXtNO. We had the pleasure of
attending tlie meeting of the Good
Templars last Tuesday evening, which
was open to the pnbHe. Their neat
and commodious Hall was comforta
bly filled witli ladles and gentlemen,
many of whom, like us. were visi
tors. Father Mendenhall was elected
to preside over the meeting, w1m up
on taking tlie chair, made some ap
propriate remarks upon the subject of
Temperanee, in which he narrated
some interesting reminiscences which
had come under his own long ex
perience and labors in tlie ennse hi
Secretary. Tlie third Democrat pre- j thi State. Regular speakers not
ent, Capt. Shields not offering to
'ratify." and there being no firtlier
business to transact, the club adjourn
ed with one or two healthy old cheers
for the success of Its odlccrs.
Latex Since, writing tho above we
learn that our first information was
incorrect as to the numbers present on
the ocemfon. It Is now asserted posi
tively tliat there were at leat five
Republicans and three Democrats
present; that a temporary organiza
tion was bad, and that the mectlmr
uljonnied to meet again at 1 o'clock
on the afternoon of the 20th Inst. I
the proceedings throughout were
-haraeterized by gnat gravity in
fact "gravity was 110 uaino for it."

Lea Yeah Bail.' Last Friday
night. a very pleasant partr of young
ladies and gentlemen of bjcity
gathered at Pnrrish Hall, and passed
1 merry evening dancing. The whole
iftair wa3 managed by tlie ladies
who selected their partners, acted as
floor managers, etc. It was a superb
affair, and was hugely enjoyed by all
present. Success to the ladles.
Sweet Potatoes. Gus. Layton,
the enterprising proprietor of the
grocery store on comer of Broadalbiu
and First streets is In receipt oPnen
grocei ies and provisions. He Iras also
received a fine lot of sweet potatoes
the best we have seen in tlac market
! being present, quite a number of per
sona present were called out, who
responded ' eticertnlly in short ad
dresses. All went smoothly as a slide
on ice, until one of the speakers lugged
in the tobacco and codec question,
which created a little uneasiness
among tobacco ehewers and Coffee
drinkers only a little. Oue fhcctlotM
speaker, by mathematical computation
"there anil then" made, showed that
another speaker had disposed of 'about
a half a mile of ping tobacco In the
last twenty (we believe, it was) years.
at the enormnii; cost of about six
hundred dollars. lie forgot to make
a computation of tlie amount of Inno
cent satisfaction and soothing comfort
that half-mile pltigafl'orded the "ehaw
er." After the speeches the audience
generally started in for a jolly good
time talking, laughing, playing blind
fold, etc.. We tried a couple of blind
folds and then went "to hum," where
we shut our "blinds ' until ratlicr late
the next morning.
