Tho strict observance of tlio dootrino

The following which explicitly ex
plains itself, is ot vital interest just
now. as it comnletclv demolishes the
scandalous lies which have been parad
ed by tho Blaino organs with shame
less inuecency. it is an uimwer iu 11
private letter sent from Harrisburg :
liUKKALO, JN. I., Jlliy 2. IJEAK
Sin: Yours of 24th instant received,
nnd we thank you for your manifested
interest in uov. Cleveland s behait.
With roferenco to the reports about
Governor Cleveland, you can say, and
you will tell the positive truth every
time yon say it, that tho story over
Rev. Ball's signature, and tho other re
ports about Cleveland's immorality, aro
absolutely false. Tho "Rov." Ball was
an ardent supporter ot Cleveland dur
ing tho gubernatorial campaign, and
was paid lor his work, we under
stand, however, that he was disappoint
ed about some position, henco the "Hop"
and dirty work unbecoming any man,
whether ho wears tho cloth or not.
Rev. Ball's article has no weight in
this place, where ho is known. The
story as published is false, absolutely
so, and will bo met in due lime. Cleve
land will carrv Buffalo by 5,000 to 8,
000 majority, and New York stato by
at least 25,000, and in all probability
considerably more. Ho is a man whoso
social or public lifo has never been
marred to prevent his associating with
and having tho confidence of the best
pcoplo in Buffalo, And if elected,
which ho surely will be, the united
States will havo an upright, honest,
fearh'ss president, l ours 1 ruly,

Tho Buffalo Express, tho republi
can Blaine organ at Buffalo, the homo
of Governor Cleveland, publishes the
following editorially :
1. Tho Jixjtress adheres to every good
word it then (when ho was nominated)
said with respect to tlio candidate's lifo
2. What wo can say, based upon
our information and ludgment, is this
We do not believe that mo charges
are, in any lust sense of tho word, true,
3. Tlio Telegraph (the little paper
printing the slandor) has had bitter
cause ero this to regret its publication
of scandalous matter which it could
not prove, nnd we think that its editor
has learned heretofore how hard it is
in this city even to get bail in a prose
cution for criminal libel
4. Wo did advise everybody who
oould to vote for Mr. Cleveland for
mayor of Buffalo and for governor of
New York. Wo have never rcgroted his
election to thoso places.

terday, aud after a drivo of 30 miles in
n four horso wagon the beautiful town
of llerwick was rcachod. Tho r6ad
runs through the mountains of Colum
bia county which at points affords
scenery magnificent In its bold out
lines nnd unsurpassed for its poeliu
beauty. Tho landscape, whero fairly
exposed to view, contnins scenery
which is not surpassed in loveliness
nnywlicro in the country. Half way to
Borwick, at Stillwater, tho party was
handsomely entertained by Daniel Mo
Henry and wife, in whose hospitable
homo welcomu was extended which
will serve hcroaftor to call up pleasant
recollections of both host nnd hostess.
On reaching Borwick at 3.30 p. in. a
splendid dinner awaited tho tourists at
tho residence of tho Rev. Evans. Liko
hospitalities wcro dispensed at both
theso places to tho party on the way
to tho fishing grounds.
AT THE KISIIINO OltOUNDS.
The locality whero tho party fished
and spent tho week is in tho shadow of
threo mountains, at tho baso of which
runs tho streams from hich tho speck
led beauties wcro hooked. William
Cole entertained tbo fishermen and tlio
ladies of tho party during thoir stay.
Tho locality is one of umbrageous
shade, with tlio mountains for its walls
and tho bluo canopy of heaven for its
ceiling, through which swept winds la
den with tho porfumo of mountain ver
dure aud full of health invigorating
draughts. Some disappointment was
experienced on arriving to find that
owing to the drought the streams wcro
nearly all dried up, but notwithstanding
lav trout wero caught tho hrst day,
and over 900 wero taken during tho
trip. Tho low stage of water was a
drawback to tbo amateurs, but they
did the best under the circumstances,
making up for failures in angling bv
displays of good nature, tho indulgence
of games and cracking jokes, keeping
compauy in high spirits constantly.
On tbo road to tho stream aro two
bridges, which have been named
"Truth" and Veracity," on the other
sido of which fish stories nnd prevari
cations wcio allowed (when not detect
ed). Tho names of tho bridges wero
greatly compromised in some of the ac
counts related of big catches. It was
discovered that some of tho hshermen
paid a visit to a man by tho name of
John Stout, from whom they purchased
trout. (Jhnrges of visiting John btout
wero frequently made. Dr. Pitcairn
nnd Mr. MoIIenry made a large catch,
which was "stoutly ' questioned.
tiovcrnor I attison and Ur. otcven-
son did not develop as fishermen until
tho sixth day. JUr. iiear concluded ho
was not a bshermau at that stage ot
tho water. Hugh 1'itcaitn, Jr., caught
tho largest fish. Rev. Williamson was
accused of damming up a pool aud
bailing tho water to catch the trout-
Rev. Kinter maintained his reputation
of being tho champion fisherman. His
record for this season is over 1,700,
Rev. Evans and his son wero indefati
gable and wero rewarded. Mrs. Paul
son, Mrs. Pitcairn and Mrs. Bear put
in the timo with "crazv patch work,'
etc. Quoits, proverbs, historical char
acters, chequers and other games help
ed to amuse tho party. Governor Pat
tisou is an export with quoits. Dr. Pit
cairn is not so skilled in the gamo
though energetic in his playing. Ow
ing to his attendance at tho funeral of
of Mrs. Caasidy, Governor Patttison
did not arrive on tho ground until
Tho Jadies of tho party enjoyed tho
trip with much zest, and performed tho
difficult task of walking to tho fourth
or upper falls. Thero were mishaps to
some of tho party during tho week,
but nothing serious occurred to mar
tho pleasure of tho trip.
