Judge Harding of Luzerno county, from
all accounts, has got himself in an unpleas
ant situation. Two of the County Com
missioners who were indicted for receiving
bribes aud for embezzlement of public mon
ey, when brought up for trial plead guilty,
aud were sentenced by Judge Harding to
pay back the money. In passing sentence
his Honor remarked that the prosecutors,
Messrs. Dickson aud Payne, did not desiro
tho imprisonment of the olfemlers. In an
swer to this, those gentlemen have published
a letter squarely denying that they ever ex
pressed auy such, feelings, but on the con
trary had distinctly said to the Judge that
they would not be satisfied with the simple
iinXMition of a flue. This places Judge
Harding in the position of having uttered a
deliberate falsehood from the bench in or
der that he might let two public plunderers
go scot free. There is another charge against
this dignitary of having accepted a live bun
dred dollar watch ami chain irom a builder
named Houpt, whom he had aided iu secur
ing a fat contract from the Commissioners.
If this be true, the whole thing looks as
though the light sentence passed on the
prisoners was lor the purpose of closing their
mouuths about auy little matter in which
the Judge might be interested. The Lu

For some time buck preparations have
been going on, for the purposo of properly
observing tho Centennial Annlvcisary of
American Independence. The manner in
which tho exercised of the clay passed off
reflected much credit on all who were en
gaged in their management. The committee
iippuinted at a meeting of our citizens, held
some weeks since, did their whole duty, and
the people of Columbia county are indebted
chielly to them for the success of the oc
casion, Tho Wyoming 'Artillery under the com
mand of Capt. J. K. Ulln.au numbering
about fifty men, who had been invited to bo
present, accepted the invitation, and arrived
at live o'clock on Monday uflernoon, bring

All duy Monday our citizens were busily
employed iu decorating their houses and
places of business, and the result was tho
finest display of bunting ever witnessed in
Hloomsburg. Flags waved from every win
dow, and pictures representing Revolution
ary Incidents wcro numerous. At half past
eleven Monday night the bells began to toll,
and at twelve, at a signal fired by tho
Artillery, they till broke forth into u joyous
peal, ushering in the new century. Guns
and pistols were fired, and notwithstanding
a Town ordinance to the contrary, rockets
and tire crackers blazed and cracked along
the streets. The town was fairly wild, and
many persons did not go to bed at all. At
sunrise, on the 4th the bells were rung again
and the Artillery lircd n salute of thirty
oight guns, R. F. Clnrk,Ksq .discharging the
first Centennial shot. All the morning people
from a distance came flocking into town, lire
companies and organizations arrived on tho
trains, aud if there was any doubt as to the
complete success of the celebration, it was
At one o'clock iu tho afternoon tho pro

Committee ol arrangements. The tableaux
1770 consisted of fourteen you.ig ladies,

the Goddess of Liberty .drawn by four horses.
On tho front of the wagon was an arch con

1824 to 18:50, and several times afterwards.;
and Ho':. K. J. Mc Henry, our piesent mem

horses iu Risewick's baud wagon, consisted
of twentv-tive young ladies dressed iu white,
representing the additional states admitted

lepublie and a common destiny.
Civil Serein Reform.
Relorm is necessary in the civil service.
Experience proves that cllici"iit, economical
conduct of the governmental business is not
possible if itscivil service bo subject tochaiigo
at every election ; to bo a prize fought for at
the lallot-box ; to be a brief reward ol party
zeal, instead ol posts ol honor assumed lor
proved cninpvtency and held for liilelitymtlio
public eniplov; tliat the dispensing of pat
ronage should neither Ihi a lax upon the limo
I all out public men nor the instrument ot
their ambition. Hero, again, professions, fal-
ified in the pcrfmmniicv, attest that thu par
tyin power can work out no practical or sat'
'4c OJicer I'ubtie Her raid.
Reform is necessary even uinicin the high
r grades of public service. The President,
Vice President. Judge, Senators, Represen
tatives, Cabinet uthcers and all others in
iiuthority aro tho public servants. I ho unices
:iro not a private pemuisite : They aro a pub
lic trust. v lien me annais oi ino iieiiunii
show tho disgrace and censure of Vice Prosi
lent; a late Speaker ol the House ot llepre-
sentatives marketing Ins rulings as a iire-i-
line officer: three Senators profiting secretly
by their votes as, law-makers: five chaiiiuen
oi' lending committees nf tho House of Rep
resentatives exposed iu jobbery ; a lato Sec
retary of the Treasury forcing balances iu llie
public funds: a Secretary of tho Navy enrich-
nig mends by percentages levied on tlioprolits
ot contractors with his department; an Am
bassador to F.ugland censured for a dishonor
able speculation ; tho President's Private Sec-
retary tiarely escaping; conviction upon trial
ior giniiy complicity iu iraiuis upon 1110 rev
enue; a Secretary ol ur impeached tor
high crimes and confessed misdemeanors, the
leuioiistratiou is complcto that the first ste
in reform must be the people's choice nf'lion
est men from another party, lest the disease
ol one political organization inlest tho body
politic, and lest by making no change of men
or party wo can get no change.
All these abuses, wrongs and crimes, the
product ol sixteen years ascendancy ol the
Republican party, create a necessity for re
form confessed h) tho Republicans tliL'inelves
but their relormers are otcd down in enliven
tinn and di- placcd from the Cabinet. The par
ty's inas of honest voters aro powerless to resist
the eighty thousand office-holders, its leaders
and guides. Reform can only be had by a
peaceful civic revolution. Wo demand a
change ot system, a change of administration
a change of party, so that we may have a
change of niemliers and of nieii.
