M LOGAN & CO. would most respectfully V I inform the good citizens of Macon and the sur ! lounding country, that they are not quite soling off I their stock at New York cost, nor do they loudly hoasi \of under selling their neighbors. The design of this advertisement ts to disseminate extensively this unde niable tiuth, viz : that our assortment is rich and racy— rare and beautiful; comprising every desirable article of Fancy and Staple Dry Goods usually found in store on speculation. ’Tis unnecessa ry to enumerate the many, rery many extravagantly beautiful articles on hunt), and to comment upon intrin sic worth, is deemed entirely superfluous. Suffice it to say. that all our rich Fancy Dr-ss Goods. French Work ed Capes, A c were purchased of A T Stewart & Cos . New’York, and differ materially in slyle and patterns from nil others in Macon. All those who entertain the erronious impression that we hold up for high price**, can receive oceular de monstration to the contrary by popping in and looking 1 for themselves.

First Piniio in Noithorn Illinois, During the summer followi tg the termina tion of tne Block Hawk war—being among the first of the Jowneasl emigrant* to the 101111- try then barely evacuated by the red men of the forest —Pr A., of Baltimore removed to what Ims since become a small town near the Illinois river, by the name of P . The doc toi’s family was composed of three young ladies and Itis wife all of whom were performers on the piano and one nf them the possessor of the in t. uinent in question. As ts usually the case in nil newly settled places when a -new comer” makes his appear ance the neighbors (that were to be) bad ref lected together for the purpose of seeing the doctor’s -plunder” unpacked and making the acquaintance of its possessor. Ur. A.’s “household” was stowed away in ► even large wagons —being first packed into pine boxes o:t which were painted in large black letters, the contents, address &r. One wago t after another was unloaded with out much sensation on the part of the little crowd of lookers-on. except an occasional excla mation similar totlielollowing from those who hail -‘ never seen the like before:’ ’ •‘Glass! This side up with care! Whv l thought this ere teller was a doctor. What on yearth is he going to do with that box full of winders ?” ” This side up with care!” exclaimed one. “lie’sgot lie* paragoric and ile-of-spike tixins in that. Won’t lie tizic them ugur fellows down on the river!” In the last wagon there was but one large box, anti on it were printed tlie words - I’iano Forte—Keep dry and handle carefully.” It required the assistance of till the bystanders to unload this box and the curiosity excited in the crowd upo-i re -ding the tort-going words, and hearing the inusit-inl sounds emitted as it struck the ground, can only be gathered by giving a lew ol’ the expressions that dropped 1 from tlu- spectators, •• Pine liirt!” said a talL yellow haired, fever and-aguc-looking youth; “ wonder if lie’s a feered of the injuosj He can’t scare them with a pine Ibrt.” K-ec-p tl-r-y” was spelled by a large, raw boned man who wtts evidently a liberal patron of old bald lace ” and who broke oil at the letter y’ with-lln> —n your temperance kitrttc turs —you needn’t come around here with tracts ?” He was interrupted at this point by a stout built personage who cried out: lie’s got his skeletons iu tliar. and he’s afoered login them licker. (or they’ll breakout el ite does! —Poor fellers !—they must fuller powerfully.” “ Ha mile care fully ” said a man in a red hunting shirt arid the size of whose fist” as he doubled it up was twice that of an ordinary man. “ Thar’s some live critter in thar. Don't you hear him groan ?"’ This was suid at the oox struck the ground and the concussion caused a vibration of the strings. No sooner liael all hands let goof the box. than Dr. A. was besieged by bis neighbors, ail of whom were determined to know what were its contents and what were the meaning of the words - Piano forte.” On Itis telling them that it was a musical instilment pome -reckoned that it would take a tarnal sight of wind to blow it;” others that “ it would take a I lot of men to make it go !” Ac. The doctor ; explained its operations as well as lie could but j still Itis description was any thing but sntiffac ! iory and he could only get rid of his inquisitive neighbors by a sight at an early day. Three days—days that seemed like weeks | to the persons mentioned —elapsed In-lere the 1 premises o; Dr. A. were arranged for t-.e rcccp- I tion of visitors ; mid various and curious were j tin- surmises among the settlers during this time. Dr. A and lilt • plunder’ were the only topics of convent ttion |br miles around. The doctor’s house had but one lower room, but this was one of double the ordinary size, tnd the carpets were all too sm ill tocoverthe entire floor ; hence a strip of bare floor ap] ear ed at each side of the room. Opposite to ami lacrtg the door was placed the *• Pine fort.” All was ready for the admission of visitors, and Miss E. was to act as the first performer. The doctor had but to open the door, and hall'a score of men was ready to enter. Miss F,. took her seat and at the first sounding of die instrument the whole pnrty present rush ed in. Some went directly up to the .crittur ’as it had been called on account its having four legs—some more shy. remained close 10 me door, where, if necessary, they could more easily make their escape; while others, wlto had never seen a carpet were observed walk ing round on the strip ol’ bare floor, lest by treading on the - handsome kaltker.” they might it ! The first tune Beemed to put the whole company in extacics. The raw boned man who was so much opposed to temperance tracts, pulled out a flask of whiskey, and insist ed that the -gal,” as he called Miss E. should drink. Another of the company laid u dime, and wanted “ that’s worth more of For ty pains,” ns the name of the instrument had come to him alter travelling through some five or six pronoiuiciations. Another, with it broad grin on his face, declaring that he 1 would give his claim and all the truck oa it. il' dnter could have such a cupboard!’ The “pine Ibrt” mail suggested that if that sort of music hml been iu the Black Hawk War - that would have skccred the fitgims, like all hol i lar V It in needless to say that it was late at night before Miss K. ami the otlier ladita ol’ the I louse roiihl satisfy their delighted hearers that they were all “ tireil out.” The whole country lisr twenty miles round rung with the praise of Dr. A.'s •• consarn” and the mosikle kuhhnrd I” The doctor immediately Imd any quantity of patients—all of whom, would eoine in person lor Heviee. or u few ‘ogur pills’ but none of whom would leave without nearing the “forty pains.” With an easy way and a good natured dis position. Dr. A. soon formed an extensive ac quaintance, obtained a good practice and be anie a popular man. He was elevated to some of the most resjionsible offices in the gill of the people—one of which he held at the time of his death. So much tor the charms of a Piano Forte. A (.no.l Joke. Under this head the Nashua Gazette tells tile tallowing story: ••In a certain town in this State, which shall he nameless a man who had been bereaved of his wile, had the customary ” note read in the church where lie usually worshipjied. Within six weeks after, the mourning widower took to himself another wife. A short time niter lus marriage, the clergj man of the parish “ ex changed “with a neighboring minister, who, finding this •• note” in the pulpit, nreonlingly rea l it again, much to the delight doubtless, and edification of the congregation, and the Ibrmcr mourning widower.” To friiclitcn Crows.

Separated ty a urn ill, and as was ascertained by the Adjutant General’s obser vations a fordable creek, from an enemy su perior in numbers equipment and discipline, and exasperated by recent discomfiture, with a river, impassable by floating ice, in their rear. W nshington and his Generals could not but look with extreme solicitude to the chan ces ol the next day. No sooner had night clo sed than a council of war was held at the quar ters of Mcrcor or St. Clair. Os its delibera tions little further is known, than that the bold project w is agreed to, to attempt to turn the leit flank of the enemy by n secret and Ibrced march, and full upon their rear and attack their comparatively unprotected posts at I nnceton or Brunswick. This was aetermin ed on, and the movement commenced before midnight, as appears from the following hur ried letter from the Adjutant General, the on ly contemporaneous memorial that has survi ved of the doings of that night. East side ok Trenton Crier. i January 2.1, 1777, twelve o’clock at nigbft. $ Deis General Putnam: The enemy advanced upon us to-day. We came to the east side of the river or creek which runs through Trenton, when it was re solved to make a forced march and attack the enemy at Princeton. In order to do this with the greatest security our baggage is sent off to Burlington, liis Kxccllcriey begs you will march immediately forward with aFI the force you can collect at Crosswicks where you will find a very advantageous post; your advan ced party ul Allentown. You wtil ul.-o send a good guard for our baggage wherever it may tie. 1, aus hear from you as often ns possi ble. V\ e shall do tire same by you. X™ rß > ‘ J- Reed. 1 o Mnj. Gen. Putnam, Mount Hotly. It must have been a few minutes nfter this letter was written that the midnight march ol’ the 2d ol January was commenced the first etfectoi which was to turn the tide of war and compel the enemy', :n no ill-founded panic to abandon all tlour recent conquests, and evac uate New Jersey. At rughtlall on tin* 2d, the weather was un usually mild, so much so as to thaw the roads, and indu e very reasonnlde apprehensins that they might Ire found impassable. In the ‘our*e ol the evening however, \ sudden change fucli rw ol leri occurs in ow variable climate, took place, the wind veered to the northward and it became intensely cold, the roads though rough being frozen” hard. A working party was detach, and to the lower ford near the bridge in Trenton, with orders to continue busily and noisily at work lilt day ‘reak, anti tires were lighted on the lower hunk of the Assnnpi.ok near which the Amcr ciui sentinels were to be seen during the night. Ine scheme was completely successful. The irmv was secretly withdrawn. Mercer with the flying camp in advance, and the main bo ,ly consisting principally ol the Pennsydvania troops under VVnsfiingtoa r M immediate com mand, marched by the mad to flkuultown and the Quaker Bridge, towards Princeton. About daybreak they had reached the point where the chasseurs had been captured. Here Washington paused till his column was con solidated and then pushed rapidly on. their approach being yet undiscovered. Alter cros sing Stonev Brook,* the Americans pursued its hank till they reached a blind rood at the edge of the wcod below the Meeting House, by which according to the ht&rmntir>n of the guides there was a mom direct and lets ex posed route to Princeton than by the main road still some distance in advance. The body defiled on this road to the right, white Mercer with his brigade eoinp.sed principal y* o; the remains of the Delaware and Mary land regiments pushed on nlo g the creek “to • ike possession, and if possible destroy the bridge, over Stoney Brook—by which Lord Cornwallis’ approach should lie have taken the alarm might be obstructed. The Briti h troops at Princeton consisting ol the 17th 40th, and 55th Regiments whol ly unsuspicious of the near approach of an en emy, had been put in motion at an early hour to join Lord Cornwallis at Trenton. But one regiment, (17th) commanded by Col, Maw hood had, however, aigually inarched. At laybreak it had reached Cochrane’s house a -Itort distance Irom the bridge over Stoney Book, and in the first light of the morning the two advancing parties Manhood’s regiment and Mercer’s brigade, discovered each other, Mawhood. after a moment’s halt on the hill, made a rapid retrogade movement, crossing the bridge and pushing back to join the other regiments supposed to be npproaching from Princeton, Mercer immediately moved to the right so as to intercept him. anil gain the ri sing ground near Clark’s house. The Ameri cans having a shorter distance to march reach ed their position sooner than the enemy and formed behind a hedge fence in front of the huse. The action immediately began with great spirit. At the first fire .Mercers horse was disabled. One of his colonels mortally wounded and carried to the rear. This caus al u momentary coi’iiskm and the American line broke. I'upt.

Immediately on the sound of the firing reach ing Washington, who was pushing on towards Princeton, lie detaehed a body of the Penn sylvania militia to the left, and with them has tened to sustain Mercer. They reached the ri sing ground beyond the wood in time to wit ness the first retreat of this corps. The Pcnn sylvnmans were formed umier cover of the wood und becoming in the true restlessness of raw troops, impatient under the fire of Mawhood’s artillery, moved rapidly in ad vance beyond the cover. Washington rode hasiilg by them waving his hat and calling to them to maintain their ground. He then rude forward under tlm fire of the enemy*! buttery to rally the remain of Mercer’s de tachment, his artillery funning on the brow of the little i idge near the wood. At this mo ment the 7tlt Virginia regiment came rapidly up from the wood, and torming on the right ol the Pennsylvanians, the whole moved tor ward with it loud cheer. The conflict was short and severe, and the British in their turn broke and retreated. Washington leaving a party to break down the bridge and vending orders to St. Clair to continue the advance to Princeton, went with n detachment of caval ry in rapid pursuit of the fragments of *Maw - Iwssl’s regiment now completely dispersed.— The fute of the day was thus decided. The other British regiments, uftcr a moment’s stand and the interchange of a few shots with St. ('lair’s advance guard near the Col lege, fled in disorder to Brunswick. Princeton was immediately taken possession of by the Americans. Such was lb* fatigue, however,’ of the troops, they not having slept for two_ night", or had anything to eat since tlicmoru in r before, it hoeame necessary to relinquish the movement against Brunswick, and to with draw the army first to Kingston and thin to Pluekemin. whence on the sth Washington wrote hi* despatch to Congress inlbriaing them of his soocem.
