IMPORTANT TO HUCKSTERS. —We
notice among the bills passed by the
Legislature, and approved by the Gov

the act relative to huckstering in Bed
ford, Cumberland, Fulton, Franklin

against non-residents of those counties,

fund to non-residents, who have licen

and after inarching through the town,
proceeded to the Presbyterian Church,

Dr. C. N. Hickok, Dep. Grand Master.
The address of Dr. Hickok, was very
instructive and entertaining, and all
went away highly gratified.
THE BORDFR RKLIEF BILL.— The
following from the Fulton Republican,
of last week, we endorse to the last let
•The bill for the relief of thesufferers
along the Border by reason of the reb
el invasion, <fcc., failed to become a law.
It pissed the House, but was killed in
the Hnate. It is only another evidence
of theunmitigated meanness and sel-
of some men — mean , because
the disticts which oppose it were far
remove! from the scene of war, and
rested secure in person and property,
while wt, along the Border, were con
stantly e.\posed and stood as a bulwark
between tlem and the enemy, and were
liable, at fimost any time for three or
four years, to incursions from guerrilla
bands and our substance taken from
us, while our young men were absent
in the army, battling alongside those
from our more favored districts; selfish,
because an appropriation for this pur
pose would make so much less in the
Treasury for these fellows to appropri
ate to themselves in some shape or oth
We know of men who, to the extent
of their ability, sustained the Govern

some iustances,lost all they had by the

be left to suffer by neglect of that Gov

The Character of the Pennsylvania
State Loan.—The financial security of
a Commonwealth rests on the double
foundation of sufficient resources and
popular confidence in the willingness
and ability of the State to pay its debts.
Viewed from these standpoints, we
must assign to the new loan lately nego
tiated by Pennsylvania the foremost
place among all the investments of the
day of reliability. When we
consider the vast resources of the
Keystone State, and the limited amount
of her indebtedness, which, when com
pared with her assets, make her liabil
ities as a drop in a bucket, we can im
agine no safer or more desirable form
of permanent investment than the
purchase of the bonds of the Common
OF the many cosmetics and toilet ar
ticles now advertised, but few prove to
be what they are represented. Messrs.
Berger, ShuttsA Co., Chemists, of Troy
N. Y., are advertising extensively
several articles that have proved them
selves just as represented, for which
they are acting as agents. We believe
them to be perfectly trustworthy, and
that parties using their preparations
will find them fully up to recommen
dations given. See their advertisement
in an other column of this paper.
GEARY. — The Erie Dispatch, (Repub
lican) says:—"lt is claimed for Gov.
Geary that he is wise and strong in
intellect. A Governor who signs a
law and then asks the Legislature to
repeal it because he did not know what
he signed until somebody told him,
as Geary did in the case of the Al
legheny Valley Railroad bill, is not
overloaded with brains."
—The New Castle Gazette makes
this apt suggestion:
"When you hear any one bragging
of bis Democracy, ask r.im if he takes
his county paper. If he don't his
feathers will drop in spite of him.
Try it on."
