TITW, BROWN'S Slatted Dasher Churn,-W Patented May llth,_ 1858. The economy and usefulness of this Churn has been acknowledged by every farmer who has had them in use on his premises, and so popular have they become in all the eastern counties of Pennsylvania, that they now supercede all the old machinery for this purpose. The principal feature of the Dasher Churn is the advantage which it possesses of inaKiug more butter out of the same amount of cream thau any other churn, and also leaving the milk perfectly clnan from curd' or butter, and gathering the butter in four solid rolls, perfectly clear of milk. It performs its work in one-half the time occupied by the common churn, which is a saving of great importance in tho dairy.

TOWN AND COUNTRY. Saint Patrick. The commemoration of the birth-day of St. Patrick, Ireland's patron Saint, on Thursday last, was marked with the usual -Religious ceremonies by the Catholic community. In the evening, by announcement, the Eight Rev. Thomas Hatoes- delivered a lecture in the Court House, on the Life, Character and Services of St. Patrick. The audience in attendance was very large, and the manner in which the learned lecturer treated his subject, highly interesting and satisfactory. St. Patrick is a character in history but little known to the ftarnal reader, and yet few men have done more in ancient -or modern times, for the evangelization of a ipeople, or the rescue of a nation from barbarism and superstition. "When St. Patrick entered on his mission, the Irish people were wedded to idolatry. Ireland was ruled by the worst forms of tyranny; and yet at that age, the Irish cultivated and preserved a classic elegance and attachment for learning, not displayed by oth...

Dedication of the Armory. On Thursday eveningkst the Bellefonte Fencibles dedicated their Armory. Early in the evening the rooms were crowded with invited guests, among whom were many ladies. Venus and Mars joined hands on the occasion, and if blushes arc an indication, Cupid was also present indulging in his sly pranks. The Fencibles were drawn up in the drill room, where Captain Ctjrtin stated the object of the occasion in a few words, and then submitted to those present the liberty of proceeding as they deemed appropriate' Hon. James Burnside made a few remaiks, in which he alluded to the Fencibles, their military progress, and the past, present and future independent position of the peopfe of this county. He was followed by Hon. James T. LTale and Captain Ccrtix in felicitous and appropriate remarks. The ladies were then escorted to the table, and the soldiers vied with each other in serving their guests. Bright lights, indeed, shone on fair women and brave men. As the music b...

Concert in Aaronsburg,. A grand concert of vocal and instrumental music was given in the Gev, R. Church, Aaronsburg, on Friday evening last, by several singing classes, the AaronsbugMusical Association, and the Aaronsburg and Millheim String Band—all under the direction of J. G. Meyer, musical teacher. A correspondent informs us that their effort on this occasion far exceeded any former one, and proved entirely satisfactory. T'frf addresses were delivered by Prof. J. B. Djmm And Rev. Edmonds. The former delivered his production in the form of a poem—Subject,'- "Effect of Music on the Mind." The latter delivered an address in the German language. Ke spoke of music as being of Divine origin, and quoted" Luther to show that it was the second Theology, and that its tendency was to Inspire a spirit of devotion. The character and success of this concert at once proved the ability of Mr, Meyer as a music teacher.

Shade Trees. There is an old Turkish adage, that e\;ery young man should plant a tree in •whose shade he could recline in his old age. It is a good adage, too, and we have often wondered that it has not been practiced more in Bellefonte. The broad streets of the borough are peculiarly adapted for shade trees, and than their ornamental effect would be very handsome, Shade trees on both sides of Spring, and the same on Bishop street, could be. very easily planted. Both these thoroughfares #re very much exposed, and tho appearance of both would be im-, proved by the planting of trees. Indeed, there is not an avenue in the borough but could be iraproyed in this manner, and we most respectfully suggest the plan. We would also respectfully ask when the trees ore to be planted in the Court House yard,

The Season of Lent. We are in the midst of the season of Lent. Originally the fast conimenceden that which is now the first Sunday in Lent, and ended on Easter Day, but as this left only thirtysix days when the Sundays were deducted, upon the principle that no Sunday can. be a fast day, Pope Gregory added four days from tho previous week, begining with Ash Wednesday. The name Ash Wednesday was derived from the ancient ceremony of blessing ashes at this season, with which the priest signed the people on the. forehead in the form of a cross, affording them withal this.wholesome admonition, "Memeniojwmq, quod pulvis es,et in pulverem reverioris."—Remember, 0 man, that thou art dust, and to that dust shalt return; The ashes thus usei were made.pf the palms consecrated the Sunday twclvef months before, and this ceremony, though in. a modified form, survived the first shock of the Reformation, not being abandoned until about the year 1647-'48. when, as Stow tells us, "The Wednesday foll...

BeUefonte Foundry-The Messrs. Harris have disposed of this establishment, and intend retiring from the business on the 1st of April next. As a firm they are very popular for their enterprise and promptness," and any regret that may be occasioned by their retirement will be diminished by the fact that they are to be succeeded by gentlemen equally as enterprising. S. & S. H.AUPT.of the Millheim Foundry, have purchased the good will, machinery, and fixtures of the Bellefonte Foundry, and will go into active operations there as soon as the Harris firm retires. Messrs. Hatjpt will find many friends and customers in this vicinity, and, we have no doubt, they will contribute largely to swell the business of the borough. They are both practical men, and from what we can learn, have in their employ some of the best mechanics in the country.

I/unar Befleetions. On Friday evening last what we can only call a Lunar reflection, was observed in the north-western portion of the horizon. It described a circle similar to a rainbow—its hues were for a few moments almost as varied arid beautiful.and as itfaded gently from the sight its subdued tints assumed a most striking character. The moon was just rising, the sky covered with flying clouds, and the atmosphere filled with a thin mist, on which the rays of the moon doubtless produced the beautifully tinted bow. It was a strange and beautiful sight to us, and as such we giveit the benefit of a local paragraph.
