Sovcral brigades of Stato Militia aro
now in camp at Lewistown. Thero has
been considerable complaint owing to
tho scarcity of water and tho abundance
of snakes. One officer is reported to
havo killed thrco ratlcsnakes in his tent
near his cot. Tho paper docs not stato

ever selected from tho presont territory
of Columbia county, from the date of
the crtatioii of the county at tho legis

meiit covers a period of 70 years.
Several eminent judges have presided
in the Courts of this county within the
recollection of men who served in the
Convention on Tuesdav: Ellis Lewis.
John N. Conyngham, Warren J. Wood

the list of men who havo administered

in the State havo been equally favored
by fortuno in tho securing excellent

the people of the countv mar well con.
gratulato themselves that the present

Tho passago of the river and harbor
bill over the President's veto was an
outrage that should bring strong eon
demuation upon the party that effected
it. There is strong re.non to believe
mat tho President knew what action
lus party would take tn tho matter be-
loro no vetoed tno inn, tor no was very
careful to inform tho Republican lend,
era in Congress that ho would not con-
sider it a slight nor a rebnku if they
passed it over his head. It is true that
somo Democrats voted for its passage,
but they were mostly from tho Soutl
wuero tho money is needed to
protect the peoplo from tho overflows
of tho Mississippi and tho iuroads of

vania not a Democrat voted for it, and
wo aro glad to record our member,
Major Klutz, as being present, and vot
ing ngainst tho measure. Republican
organs bock to oxcuho their representa

ocrats voted for tho measure as Repub

ever, fails to bear this out. It is tho
act of a Republican Congress and thoy

When tno cider Cameron advauccd
in years tie sought to perpetuate tho
ale of bis iamily by transferring tho
political power of Pennsylvania to his
Bon, who was without either experienco
in or capacity for public affaire. How
this transler was viewed by tho peoplo
of the state may bo inferred from the
following editonal comments of that
couservntivo journal, tho Ledger, on
tho following day :
"Word was sent out lrom llarrie-
burg yesterday of a nature calculated
to puzzle thoso old-fashioned folk who
Bupposed that 'Proprietary-Govern
ment' had come to au end in 1780. It
is to tho effect that tho representation
of tho stato in tho Senate of tho United
States is to bo transferred from Cam
eron, senior, to Cameron, junior by
virtuo of somo amicable familv arran
gement, it may bo supposed. Whether
the title to succession is to bo transfer
red by deed or gift, or by last will and
testament, or by any other ot the well
known modes of conveyance and inheri
tance is not mado known in the dis
patches. Tho members of the legis
lature are, of course, expected to vote,
in order to comply with tho forms.
Theoretically, tho representation of
i'nunsylvania in tho senate of the
United States is supposed to involve
tho civil and the political right of all
tho poopleof the commonwealth. In a
party point ot view at this tirao it
nearly concerns the honor uml manhood
ot the whole Kepubhcau constituency
of tho state : practically, however, if
the above mentioned report be true, it
would' look ns it those very agreeablo
gentlemen, tho Cnmcrous, regard tho
matti.r as if thu principal interest in it
attaches to themselves, and the docilo
members of tho legislature aro doubt
less expected to take tho samo view.
If thero shall bo occasion for any bal
loting on t'io subject wo shall havo a
chance to find out whether tho 'Pro
iirietary-Govermuent' really ended
hundred years ngo, or is continuing in
tull vigor in our own day.
Tlio ledger and the red ot tho stato
soon discovered that tho ''I'lopne-
tary Government continued in its lull
vigor. The younger Cameron was elected
United states senator simply because
tho elder Cameron decreed it.
Months after that, when tho burst
of indignation which followed this
event bad subsided and men measured
their words. Benjamin Harrison
Browster, now tho representative of
Pennsylvania Republicanism in Ar
thurs Cabinet said:
"Last winter our people wero shock
ed with the election of J. Donald Cam
eron, thu irresponsible son of a Senator
of whom 1 will not speak , because ho
and his acts have become a part of
public history and must bo measured
with more deliberation than can bo
given in a casual conversation like this
a son that lias neither mind, attain
ment, diguitv of character, knowledge
ot public uitairs, party s rvices or per
sonal worth to warrant his advance
ment, and who has no ivcoid but a bad
ono as an intriguer ami manager of
bad men. He was first forced into tho
War Den nt ment as tho price of his
offer to betray his statu and rcnomlnato
ucnerul uront, and after being thero
ho was ko base born in his notions of
deceuoy aud gentlehood a -to solicit
nnd urge, by nil tho mean arts of poli
tical contrivance, that he hhould be re
tained as the companion of Cabinet of
ficers and gentlemen who don t want him.
Failing iu that, by tho coarso bruto
forco of organized powf-r ho jostled bis
old father out of his placo and thrust
himself into n Senate where ho will be
an object of derision nnd disgust. Tho
public aro sick of thoso odious men,
and tho publio will do away with them.
Wo have destroyed human bondage in
thu South ; wo will nuxt break down
political bondago in tho North and
Tho peoplo in Pennsylvania aro mak
iug an effort to freo themselves from
political bondage. Don Cameron pur
poses to perpetuate it by tho election
of his man for Governor, When Bea
vcr was not his man ho was beaten for
tho nomination. In tho convention of
1878 Beaver had no bIiow. In 1880
ho went to tho Chicago convention asn
delegate. Ho was instructed for Blaine.
His constituents were for Blaine. But
ho pleased Camnron by "his offer to
betray his stato aud ruiiominato Gen
eral (Srant." After ho had thus proved
himself a "Stalwart of Stalwarts' Cam.
erou said "Boys we'll go homo mid
make Jim Govurnor of Pennsylvania."

tinuation of "Proprietary Government''

225. No one has a keener perception of
this fact than tho postal men who have
to commit theso oflices to memory
when learning the distribution of mails
for the Mate. Tho Presidental ollices
