NEWS SUiMMARY. EIGHT HEROES turned at expiration of furlough and took part in the battles of and New Hope Church, where he was badly wounded in both legs by a bursting shell. This wound unfitted him for any further active service and he was ordered on duty at Madison, where he was mustered out at the close of the war. James Moore enlisted in April, 1861, in his brother's (the captain's) comptny. He was badly wounded at Chancellorsville, and again at New Hope Church, Ga.

He was always present for duty except when disabled by wounds. He held the rank of sargeant. IS. F. Moore enlisted in April, 1861, in Captain (afterward general) C.

T. Campbell's Pennsylvania artillery, with the rank of sergeant, but was af terwaids transferred to Knapp's famous Pennsylvania battery, with rank of tirst sergeant. He was again What a strange thought All this restless world is seeking rest. Those who drag their weary bodies home, hight after night, and fall down upon restless beds, worried with the anxieties andcares of business yet seeking rest, rest. It is not found in poverty, perhaps it lurks under the rich man, all the while that he lies groaning upon his couch or stands with wrinkled brow perplexed with care.

Where is rest What is rest It is the divine principle of peace within that comes from God. As well seek roses upon the pallid cheek of death as rest out of God. The needle never rests till it turns to the pole." If a little child is frightened at play, he comes running into the house for mother. She takes him to her bosom, presses kisses upon his brow, and while she sings some lullaby of love, all fear fades from his face and he sleeps in peace. God wants to fill a mother'8 place for the whole world.

If it be misfortune, or poverty, or gloomy foreboding that makes one unhappy, God can give him rest, and breathe a lullaby of love about his tempest-tossed soul that will still its raging. Rest, peace, is a principle that lies within us and not without. Some, possessing it, have found a crowned head uneasy. that every anxious, longing heart would look away to Him who walketh among the golden lamps of heaven "Take my yoke upon you, and ye shall find rest unto your souls." THE POWER OF AFFECTION. Most men are easily led by their wives if affection not harshness is manifested towards them.

They cannot bear the least appearance of slight or- of dictation, but are touched and soothed by the appearance of submission and affection and it is thus that, strong in her weakness, woman literally conquers by stooping. Her strongest hold upon her husband is her love for him, and by its means she may subdue him to her will and pleasure. But.though we thus recommend the reality and the manifestation of affection, though we place it first among the duties of a married woman, and fection cannot be too warmly displayed by a wife, but she must display it to him, not at him. Good breeding and delicacy alone would require that fondness should be'sup- pressed before witnesses and ostentatious tenderness is usually thought to be anything but genuine. It not only causes her who lavishes it to be disliked, but makes him upon whom it is lavished, ridiculous.

A woman ot tact, or a truly modest woman, will never make the mistake of parading her love in public. Deliver us from the man so kid-gloved at the fingers and wearing so shiny a hat that he cannot say a word of welcome to any stranger in the house of God, perhaps to the poor mother wrapped in her old red shawl, and shyly creeping into church, or the young mechanic out of work and inside a threadbare coat. Such gentry need the Gospel, but they do not represent it. Some Feople who need to know of God and abetter life, will readily take to that knowledge when born to them in hands of sympathy and fellowship. It is no wonder that some churches are so empty when their members show to strangers an exterior about as warm and cordial as the north-west side of a barn in December.

Hospitality will do much toward filling up a house and increasing the church membership. Do not roll this duty upon the shoulders of the much-abused sexton. Let some of the father and brothers esteem it a privilege to welcome strangers, show them seats, and make them at home in the house of their Father. To some soul, heaven may bo in a hand-shake. In fact, judging by the dress-parade we meet with in some quarters, there are churches in which even the twelve apostles would be given a back feat or escorted to a lonesome comer in the gallery.

Christian Weekly. In reality, there i3 no limit to the niis takes of life but here are fourteen which are more than ordinarily prominent: It is a great mistake to set up our own standard of right and wrong and judge people accordingly to measure the enjoyment of others by our own; to ex pect uniformity of opinion in this world to look for judgment and experience in youth to attempt to mold all dispositions alike not to yield to immaterial trilles; to look for perfection in our own actions to worry ourselves and othera with what can not be remedied not to alleviate all that needs alleviation a3 far as lies in our power not to make allowance for the infirmities of others; to consider everything inipos3.ble that we cannot perform; to believe only what our finite minds can grasp to be able to understand everything. The greatest of mistakes is to live only for time, when any moment may launch us into eternity.

A letter was received by Acting Governor Thomas, of Utah, yesterday, from Senator Ingalls, of Kansas, in relation to the lynching of John Murphy by vigilantes in Park City, Utah, several weeks ago. The senator says that Murphy was a former resident of his county and a good neighbor, and he appeals to the governor to offer a reward for the apprehension of the vigilantes. There are no funds at the command of the governor for this purpose. The sympathy of the people in the section in which the lynching was done is with the vigilantes, and the grand jury, which ad journed on Monday failed to indict any of them, although the case was brought before them. This is thfe case in which the vigilantes compelled a railroad conductor to bike his train at midmsht arcan from Park Uity to Coalville, where they took Murphy from jail, carried him back to Park City and hung him to a telegraph pole for the murder of a miner named Brannen.

James Moore, of Xew Grenada, Fulton County, Pennsylvania, Who Had Eight Sons All In the Ser vice at One Time, etc. FIG1ITI9G FAMILIES. And Bow They Responded to the Call for Volunteers. The recent mention ia the Tribune of a case where five brothers, one after the other, responded to the call for volunteers to put down the rebellion, until the whole family was under arms, has drawn out from our subscribers the recoids in a number of similar cases of patriotic devotion, as a perusal of the following letters to the editor will show. To the editor National Tribune I am a reader of Jour paper and I have noticed recently that our comrades are calling attention to families that during the war furnished an unusual number of soldiers for the Union armies.

Five from one family is the greatest number that I have yet seen reported. Believing that the history of all such families sLould be given to the world, I send you the record of the family of Dr. James Moore, of New Grenada, Fulton county, who had eight sons all in the. service at the same time. The oldest, K.

A. Moore, enlisted in lesa than a week after the firing on Fort Sumpter, but owing to the fact that more men offered their services than could be accepted the company to which he belonged was sent home. On October 9, '61, he again enlisted in Company Seventy-seventh Pennsylvania infantry, for three years. After nearly three years' service he re-enlisted as a veteran, and was mustered out in October, 1865. He was with: his company always and always ready for duty.

He took part in the battles of Shi-j lob, Corinth, Stone River, Liberty Gsp, Chickamauga, Eesaca, New Hope Church, "Franklin'NasnvHle, at el all the minor battles in which his regiment was engaged. To write the history of his services would be to write the history of his regiment, and to write that would be to write the history of the army of the Cumberland, He was the oldest man in his company, and his advice and counsel was of ten sought by both oflicers and men. In matters of controversy, his decisions were final, and many a time did the younger soldiers of his company, the writer included, carefully keep from him a knowledge of their acts, for our parents, had given him charge and our behavior before we left our homes. John C. Moore, next hi ae, would gladly have borne a mubket, butwas prevented by physical incapacity.

He seived in the quartermaster's department during the whole time of the war. Dr. C. W. Moore, a physician of fine ability, engaged in a lucrative practice, left it to accept the commission of surgeon of the Thirteenth regimeut of Pennsylvania cavalry.

He faithfully discharged the onerous duties of his responsible position for nearly two years, when failing health compelled him to resign, l'robably no officer ever more reluctantly tendered his resignation, nor is it probable that one was one more reluctantly accepted than that of Surgeon C. "VV. Moore, of the Thirteenth Pennsylvania cavalry. Six days after the surrender of Fort Sumpter third in age of this remarkable family, J. A.

Moore, enlis ed ia Company Fifth regiment of Pennsylvania infantry, for three months. He served fail Is fully his term of enlistment. Oa theTth of August following, he was mustered into the service again, as first lieutenant of Company Twenty-eighth regiment of Pennsylvania infantry, commanded by Colonel John W. Geary, who afterwards became a major- general and commanded the famous White Star division cf the Twelfth Cors and was, after the war, twice elected governor of Pennsylvania. The Twenty-eighth regiment consisted of fifteen companies.

Five of these were transferred to the One Hun dred and Forty seventh regiment of Penn sylvania infantry, in which Lieutenant Moore was commissioned captain, March 1,1883. While in command of a brigade, General Geary detailed Captain Mooie to serve on his staff as brigade commissary, and, after his promotion to the command of a division, Captain Moore was made di vision commissary. At his urgent request was relieved from the latter position to command his company at Chancellcrville. At Antietam he lost one-lhird of his com pany, killed and wounded. He was at Get- and thud days, lie Far ticipated in the battle above the clouds in Lookout Mountain, Mission Eidge and Taylor's Ridge re-enlisted as veteran re transferred to Sixth U.

S. cavalry, and ended his military career as fust lieutenant in a Maryland regiment of infantry, after taking part in nearly all' the great battles of the war. W. II. II.

Moore enlisted, as did the others, and was discharged May 20, 1863. He took part in the battles of Antietam and Chancellorsville. C. E. Moore served in Company Two Hundred and Second regiment of Pennsylvania infantry, from September, 1861," to to August, 1865, in the coal regions of Pennsylvania at Mauk Chunk, assisting to kep down the spirit of rebellion, the possessors of which, unlike their more noble Southern brethern, were too cowardly to face the boys on the battlefield, and also alocg the railroad from Manassas to Fairfax Court House, Va.

These men are all yet living, and all but one (John are active workers in the G. A. II. All but two are prosperous farmers. Captain Moore has been since its organization in 1S65 the principal of one f5f Pennsylvania's soldiers' orphans' schools, and John C.

is his tflicient steward. During this time the captain has sect out into the world from his school 720 of his old comrades' children, and 240 are yet in his c.ire. Pennsylvania feeds, clothes and educates the -liar rLtaji atul iUashLad hnroeS until the age of sixteen years. These schools were organized in 1885. Their work will be done when the last child of the last old soldier of Pennsylvania has been fed, clothed and fully educated by the state.

They are the crowning glory of the great commonwealth. I hone you will also allow me to effer a tribute to the memory of the mother of these eight heroes. When the war broke out she was more than threescore years of age, and in April, 1861, the writer saw her approach five of her stalwart sons (every man of whom afterward 'distinguished himself and came home only when the war ended) as they stood in the ranks ready to leave the home of their childhood for the bloody fray, and giving each a mother's kiss aid a mother's parting blessing, told them to acquit themselves like mon, and that if the charge of cowardice ever attached to any one of them he must never intrude himself upon his mother again. The dear old lady was a most devoted Christian, and thanked God for honoring hereby making her the mother of eight soldiers for the Union. She bad an unwavering faith that God would return her sons to her alive.

In this she was disappointed. Her sons all came home, but when they came the grand old Spartan mother, whose prayers and benedictions had made them strong in the hour of trial, had gone to receive the crown of immortality. M. Hokton, Co. Seventy-seventh Pa.

New York. Oct 17. Mr, William II. Vanderbilt met with what might have been a severa accident, this afternoon, but which happily did not result very seriously. About 4 o'clock he drove out to Fleetwood park, as is his custom, to speed his fast trotters.

Mr. Vanderbilt, who Is known as an expert driver, as he did not notice, one of Robert Bonner's fast teams coming stiaigct toward for him, until it was too late to get out of the way, the result was a collision. A wheel was knocked off Mr.

Vanderbilt 's buggy and he wa3 thrown heavily to the ground. Later in the evening he said to his friends that he wa3 not much hurt, except a pretty bad shaking up.
