The message of the Governor, which was sent in recently shows ths debt of North Caroliua io be thirty four million eight hundred thousand dollars. The people are unable to pay the interest on thie sum. The Governor recommends the sale of the railroad interests of the State to pra . vent repudiation, but at the same time sap that no financial policy should be determined upon until the facts connected with the debt is ascer tained, in order that some conclusion :uay be reached as to the disposition of the liabilities of the State. After the message was received a j resolution was offered in the House. I and referred, reciting that as ths dsbt was ideated by strangers under the bayonets, who voted the moneys to railroads, and otherwise embexxled the fund* of the Slate, a provision should therefore be made for repudia ting the entire State debt This radical Tammanyism in North Carolina sets Tammany ism in New j York in the shade. New York city U not bankrupted by the Tammauy i stealings and driven to repudiation, though plundering* there were large; not to in North Carolina; radical mismanagement there has bankrupted the coin mou weal lb, and all the south ern states, by radical carpet-bag rule, are now in the same bad and worse than beggarly condition. Hers is something for Brown to writes chap ter on. The Bellefonte Republican has been grumbling about the tariff for the last two years like a fidgety old grany, and scolding at the democrats for interfer ing with the prosperity of the labor ing classes. We should like to ssk grany Brown —a question we pat to hira two years ago amtwhich he promis ed to answer "next week," but which he has neglected to answer up to this time —whether the radicals did not have complete power, for the last ten years, to pass any kind of tariff they pleased, and that if there is any injus tice done the laboring classes on account of the tariff, whether the blame does not lie with his ownjparty f How on earth are the democrats to blame? We can conceive the possi bility of Brown swallowing sixteen apple-dumplings, but how on earth be thinks he can make his readers swallow such silly stuff as he puts out about the tariff, we confess we can not comprehend. The present tariffis a burden upon the middle classes, and a direct rob bery of the poor to enrich a few mo nopolists, and the change that the Bellefonte RepMican advocates is to increase these burdens of the poor and squeese out of them what little is left them under the present tariff act; and although these radicals have had un limited power for the last ten years, not a section has been incorporated by them into our tariff laws, but what is a direct robbery of the laboring and consuming classes for the benefit of a few hungry monopolists, whose mil lions have been unjustly wrung from tbe farmer and mechanic and labor ing man, by a tariff that brings no rev enue to tbe public treasury but only fills the coffers of tbe monopolists. Alexia. Alexis —well, may some reader of the REPORTER say, what is tbe mean ing of Alexis. You need not run for your Webster Unabridged, because you will not find it there, but we can tell you sooner —Alexis, is a Russian grandduke, son of the present Csar, who last week arrived at New York, with some other Russian dignataries, to vis it the United 3tates. The Gothamites had been looking for Alexis for two weeks, expecting bis arrival every day —but unfavorable winds detained tbe Russian fleet which bore the Prince, New York, however, kept herself in readiness to give him ft grand recep tion, and finally Alexis did arrive. All New York turned oat, dressed up in its "go-to-meetings," the day Toes, day 21st inst, was fine, and Gotham lmd a grand holiday. Alexis is said to he a tall, finely built, well propor tioned young man, and altogether a gentleman. His reception at New ' York was a magnificent one, the mili tary were out and a great demonstra tion was bad in the city, civic and mil itary, and the grand-duke was greatly pleased with the welcome that was ex tended to him. All the vessels in the harbor were gaily dressed, and the American and Russian collors were as numerous almost as the flakes of the recent snow storm; Alexis thought New York a great city, and thinks Broadway the finest street he ever saw. The prince was welcomed to America by Gen. Dix, in a short speech, to which the grand-duke Alexis replied as follows: GKVXBAL DIX, LADIKS, *KB GEKTLK MXK: I beg to express my warmest, thanks for the kind feeling and alsoths re caption which you, in the name of the peo pie of the United State*, ere about to aivs me The friend I v feeling* Wtween,tho Uni ted State* and Ku**i* are a* strong a* they are Uating -(cheer*>—and 1 do not know of anything that could make it otherwise. 1 •hall pa** rapidly through New York to nay my respect* to your President, whoee high character i* greatly appreciated in Ku>ia: but on my return to New York 1 •hall have great pteaure in availing ntr *elf of your kind hospitality, o generously offered—(cheer*)—and for which 1 am moat grateful Soon after the arrival of the Grand Duka at his apartments in the Clare don Hotel he despatched the following message to his father by cable: Kmprror t \f Jfwssi.j, St. /Vfvrskwrg Entree el reccplion cordisle nisgnifluue. Parade do la mifiee. Tout U ville en fete Auzu. TaAKSPATIOK. Kmftrror if H* m, St l*rUr*k*iy : Entry, cordial and magnificent recep tion. Parade of the militia. Uenoral hol iday in the city. Ataxia. The same deapatch was sent to the Empress of Russia, Crimea. The ladiea are in high glee at the idea of a rual, live prince, and such a fine and noble looking one, too, be iug among us and crowded as closely as possible to him —some who stood not more than teu feet from (be prince, raised their opera glasses, and tried to eat him up with their eyes. We do not think this hungry staring of the upper tens, was very becoming, and if some of thcee faahiouable New York ladiea were to come down here to Centre Hall or Bellefonte, aud even be stared at with the unaided eye. they would call it greenneaa and a want of good breeding. But the city folks are green too, sometimes. The latest and coolest radical creep out, is that Evans the great thief, aud Hodge, the still greater radical rob ber, were Democrats! This is cool •oough for July with the thermuuioter up to a pitch to bring the grease out of a shaded darkey. Any one point ing out a democrat who was appointed to a lucrative office by Geary or Grant, will be entitlai to a gold mod ah The radicals have ever been too greedy and hungry to give a democrat any pickings, and au honest democrat stands about as little chauce to get a position from the radicals as the man in the moon ; any radical who is ver dant enough to believe the lying as sertion of some of the Grant presses, that the above named thieves belouged the democratic psrty, can be made be believe that the moon is made of green cheese snd that the ice bergs of the arctic regions are built of smeer-kase, and we have some such verdant ones in Centre county. Fraudulent Issue of Bonds in South Carolina—"Nobody to Blame. A tribune dispatch from South Car olina confirms the reports of the fraud ulent issue of South Carolina bonds. The Governor charges the Treasurer with a fraudulent issue of bouds. or rather of re-selling bonds which had already been converted into new bonds. The State Treasurer and Fi nancial Agent deny this, and say the Governor is misinformed. The result of the matter i£. that the State Treas ury is emptied snd the credit of the State below par. This is the result of caipet-bagism. Before South Carolina was cursed with northern vagabonds, who now run her state government, her people knew no such thing as dishonesty within her borders, among those connected with the administration of the state. Now she is bankrupt and disgraced, through the operation of the carpet-bag thieves. More RTBT Leases. The Pennsylvania railroad company has now also leased the Cleveland and Pittsburg road, and is negotiating for the lease of the Philadelphia, Wil mington and Baltimore road; there is also a rumor that the same company is trying to lease the Boston, Hertford and Erie road. If there are any rail roads in the moon, the great Pennsyl vania sarporation will be lure te lease them also. Look out for a negotiation with the "man in the moon" next Mrs. Stanton Tells How to Defeat General Grant To the Editor of tbe Golden Age : Sir —It has been evident for some time that the leading political parties, having done their work, must soon give place to new organizations with progressive principles and live issues on which to rouse the enthusiasm of the people. Tbe Democratic party virtually died with slavery, and the specific work of the Republican party ended with tbe adoption of the four teenth and fifteenth amendments. And now so alarmed have the peo ple become with the bare-faced aud stupendous frauds and corruptions in high places that tbe test of the Presi dential campaign of 1872 will be hon esty against corruption. It is gener ally supposed that the result of the October and November elections will re nominateGen. Grant in 1872, although a majority of the people are opposed to his re-election. No man can be nominated who can unite the opposition. To carry the North he must have a good war rec ord , and have been sound on slavery question before tbe "new departure," and such a man could not carry the border or Southern States. Now, if the opponents of General Grant really wish to defeat him, and are willing to show their hands, they can do it without sacrificing their par ties or principles. In our present mode of electing a President, he does not represent a majority of the people of the country, nor olien even a ma jority of the voters of his own party. There are mauy voters, and not a few politicians, who are ignorant of the constitutional provisions for elect ing a president and they would be very much surprised to wake up some morning and find tbe old adage "you can't tell till after election" changed to "you can't tell after election." The electoral college may prove a rock on which the ship of State will some day he foundered. The members of the electoral college have by the Constitu tion other powers than simply to regis ter the will of their respective parties. It has become with such a mere form that instead of choosing our most dis tinguished men as electors we elect some of the most insignificant and un principled, and if you can buy a legis lature why not in a close election, two or three Presidential electors? But to tbe plan. It is to run a fusion electoral ticket with a platform ; a candidate in every state opposed to Gen. Grant and corruption. This is the only way the opponents of Gon. Grant throughout the country can untie for hia overthrow. Weak ened Hepuhlicana need not fear the result, as the Senate of the United States will be Republican during the next President in I term. Would citiaens of the Kin pi re State feel alarmed if represented in |)>eelec toral college by suelt men as Sanford E. Church, Horace Greeley, Horatio Seymour, or General Hamilton, Ward ? Would Miasouroi he disgraced hy such men a* B. Grata Brown or ex- Senator Henderson ? Would New England miller from the judgment of such men as Gover nor Claflin, John Ouincy Adams, J. I ,nt In op Motley or James E. English? 1 Could Ohio ho misrepresented by Win. K. Giocabeck or General J. If. Cox? Such a ticket would sweep both South and North as clean as the "Reformers" swept the Tammany Riug in the last election. The electors chosen could meet in general convention and noiuiiiNte a I'resideul; then nsseiuble in the capi tals of their respective Slates, and cast their votes for the nominees ofj the convention. Thus would the spir it of the Constitution, as laid dowu hy the fathers lie vindicated, aud the Pres idential chair lie occupied by ascholarj a gentleman, a statesman aud an hon est man, which we all know is not the: fact to-day. ELUAHKTH CADT STANTON, j How it into be Put Through. The Washiugton organ of Graut ays that it will require not less than ten thousand regular trooiw, judicious ly distribute*! through the Southern States, to insure a free and fair elec tion iu those States in 1872 ; and that it may be necessary for Congress to increase the ariuy.. This is but oneofnumerous indications that Grant intends to force his re-elec tion by placing the South uuder bay onet rule should he receive the Re publican uomiiialion. Such a method of insuring a free aud fair election certainly deserves the credit of origin ality. it is only equalled by the in genuity of the Ethiopian present-taker who relates his experience in one of the negro minstrel halls. "Pooipey. whsr you get dat watch ?,' "A rnau gub it to me." "Gub it to you for; nuftin? "Yes—but 1 had to knock him dowu free or fou times before be'd do it." If Grant runs for presi dent in 1872 he is determined to have a free aud fair election, even if it should be ueccssary to bayonet every man in the Southern Slates who op poses him. What would be deemed a free and fair election by a mau who has used United States troops aud Galling guns to control the action of a Republican Convention at New Or leans may easily be imagined. HI'SBASIM LIABILITY. —The prev alent opinion that a husband is legally liable for all bills, of whatever nature, that his wife may contract, was uot sustained by Judge Thayer, in Phila delphia, ou Wednesday last. In a case in court the Judge decidtd in fav or of a husband who Had been sued by a dry goods firm for a debt con tracted by bis wife. Defense set up that defendant furnished his wife with an ample supply of necessaries. In the course of his charge Judge Thay er said : "It is a false and foolish no tion for trAdeapeople to entertain that a husband is bound to pay all bills contracted by his wife. No such monstrous doctrine is allowed in the law. Tradesmen must ascertaiu the facts and the true relation of man and wife before allowing the latter to, run up bills which he is to be looked to pay." Commenting upon this ex-j position of this law, which ought to be more familiar lhau it is, the Phila delphia Record thinks that when tradespeople come to distinctly under stand it "a very sensible step will have been accomplished towards re form in the wanton extravagance and ruinous folly which, under the mere tricious impulse of the stupid despot called "fashion." so wastes the sub stance, mars the manner*, deforms the persons, degrades the morals and wrecks the haopinessof myriad bouse holds, and and individuals, not only in this community, but throughout the country." The corn crop of the West, the pres eat KUOD, has proved the best harvest ed for years. In many portious of In > diana, lowa, Missouri, Nebraska, and Minnesota corn is offered in the cribs at fifteeu cents a bushel. In Illinois and Kentucky the yield has beeu be voud all precedent. The wheat crop has also been very large. In Europe, on the contrary, there appeals to have been a heavy deficit in the grain hai vests in nearly all countries. In Eng land the general falling off has been variously estimated at from fifteen to twenty per cent; while in Hungary, the Danubian Principalities, portions of Austria, and in Southern Russia —I all countries that have usually export ed large quantities of grain —there, lias been a great decrease from the: average production. The ravages of the potato rot and the cattle disease in Great Britain will increase the de mand for grain and animal food, and the United States will bo able to sup ply both in any quantity at reasonable prices. Strange Fact. Every Radical Senator in New York Legislature who was bought by; Tweed & Co., to vote for the corpora tion charter, by which so much money was stolen and the people defrauded, and who was a candidate for re-elec tion was re-elected by the Radical party and will take his scat in Janu ary next. This circumstance proves one fact beyond all boubt, that it mat ters very little what a radical docs while in office, if renominated which he can easily effect by money, he will be re-elected. The cry, "the party must be saved" is all powerful, and, up to the polls they go pell mcll, like a flock of sheep and vote the ticket clean through. Not so with Demo crats. In New York they did not preach reform merely before the elec tion and then go nnd vote the ticket. They went to t)ie polls and acted out their profession even should the party be defeated. In this course they showed their good sense. The Radi cals however took good care to vote their men in even if the party had boen bought the year previous by Tweed. With tbem party is everything, hon esty iu candidates nothing. The Pope to the Great Powers. Rome, November 16.—1t is said that the Pope iutcuds to address a com munication to the Euiopean powers protesting against certain acts of the Italian government as violations of in ternational law and of the rights aud dignities of the countries concerned. He will specify among other acts the expulsion of nuns of various nationali ties from their coveuts, ami the forci ble suppression and closing of certain international religious houses. —The Prißce of Wales is seriously ill, his complaint is similar to that of which his father, Prince Albert, died, typhoid fever.

Having become lords, the Fartnon, gave their name a more French ill ed form, and thenceforth became Feriuor*. About the year 1721 they advanced still higher and ' became Karl* of PowfreL Let u* now change the scene. We go to the city of William Penn, on the banks of the Delaware in the year lit!. Philadelphia was then in commotion One of the proprietaries, Thomas Penn.. had landed at Chester, below Philadelphia, and wa* expected to arrive very soon in the city. The window* and balceniea were Hi ed with ladies, the mob Ailed the ttreet*. A boy ran through the *lreel* crying out that the proprietary wa* coming on horse back and that his sceptre wa* carried bwfore him i in the Governors coach. I a trick Gordon, Kq., was Governor ruling in the name of these proprietories. John, Kichard and; Thomas Penn, commonly resided in Eng land. About four o'clock iu the afternoon the Governor 1 * carriage came with Thom as Penn. There was also the crutch, of tho lame man in the coach.; which the boy bad mistaken for a sceptre, at he did the servant on horse back riding behind it for tho proprietary. The ship* at the wharf fired salutes ; all the bell* in the city rang during the afternoon and at night the city was lighted with bonfire*. Tho Governor took the proprietary to hi*| house. Afterward* the city council* had the colonial legislatures give him a festi val The Indian chiefs of the "Five na tions," who happened then to be in Phila delphia, rejoiced greatly to see one of the vice-sovereigns of the province and he and they renewed the treaties made by his de ceased father, the Illustrious William Penn. On that day the Joy of the high contracting parties was expressed by Are engine* winch played all the afternoon to, the especial delignt of the Indian chief-; tain*. j But poor Tboma* Penn wa* like a fish out of water. William Penn died in great pecunriary oibarra**tiient in his collonial, arrangement*. He left hi* English estate to his oldest son in Pennsylvania, which, taken altogether, wa* esteemed of less val ue than the English property to hi* four younger mm by hi* second wife. One of these, Dennis died very young. As the province of Pennsylvania was not supposed to be an estate sufficient to sup port of tour boys, Thomas and hi* broth er John were apprenticed to a linen draper in Bristol, England. Both of these broth ers ceasea to be Friends or tjuarker* and conformed to the established church. Both occasionally used the "plain lan guage" for soma time after thu change. The Governor and several hundred men on horseback bad received Thomas at Chester. Before they reached Philadel phia thi* cavalcade reached eight hun dred, Thomas was quite bewildered at first ll* tried to drink a glass of wine at Chester but his hand trembled so that he could hardly bold the gives. In due tiuic he got over this timidity. He be-i came a great roan: lived a somewhat, dissolute life ; wa* taciturn and unpopular in manners and finally returned to England. Land in Pennsylvania began to rise in val-, ue. The estate of the proprietaries was' considerable. Thomas renn after his re-j turn to England wa* a wealthy gentleman, having power at a sort of lord-lieutenant over an important and rapidly improving province. Years passed by and Penn, then in middle life, made visits to Kaston New ton in Northampton shire. That part of England had ocen improved much, hills gradually stooping and alternating with cultivated farm* and occasionally royal for est Hirers, brooks and village* diversi fied the face of the country. But it wa# not these thut attracted Thomas Penn to Northampton shire. Neither was it the stately architecture nor the park* and gar dens of Easton Newton. In those hall* and amidst those showy trees and rare flowers was the Lady Julianna Fermor, daughter of tho Karl of Powfrol, and it was she who allured him to that delightful place In November 1761 Lady Julianna became the wife of Thomas Penn. In the year 1080 the Indian* had granted to William Penn nn extent of country reaching from former purchases, notheast wardly as far a* a man could rid* on horse back in two days. No moasure* were tak en to determine the extent ofthis grant un til 173". when a new treaty formed at Dur ham. eight mile* below ttie site of Easton, decided that the granted land should begin at Wright*town in Bucks county, and should extend as far as a man could walk in a day and a halt I Thomas and John l'onn advertised for tho best walkers. Three were selected, one of whom, Edward Marshal, started at •unrise from a marked spruce, rieptember 19th, 1787. The Indian path which he fol lowed pas.ed the Lehigh about a mile be low Bethlehem over what is now called "Jones Island." Ho walked about ttfty miles the first day and twenty-four the next half day. The Indians regarded this walk as a fraud ; one poor old Indian said : "He no sit down to smoke, no shoot tquiirel but lun, lun, lun, (run) all day long. As early as 17(JH or 1710 Germans emi grating from Europe for had begun to inhabit some interior portion* of this tract. About the year 1700 there were in all about six thousand European*, mostly Germans, scattered from the Dela ware and Lehigh towards the north branch of tho Susquehanna and head waters of the Schuylkill. In 1761 the region was organ ized at a new county and by request ot the Penn'* wa* named Northampton, aftei the shite in England, whore Lady Julian na lived. In 176*2 a town was laid out at the conflu ence of theJDelawaro and Lehigh and named Easton after the seal of Lord l'ow fret.

The voice w* Juat a* tweet and mellow a* iu the olden day*, only mure cultivated The regal brow and gloriou* eve* were juat ihaMtne; yet a cold, haughty smile tat upon her lip*, and cultivated slag* gesture* made a change, one who knew her in cirlbood * bloom would, after careful stuJy, recognise thi* haughty regal wo -1 man. A* the curtain fell we bade adieut o Aline, ' and sincefthat eventful night we have never I met. And now rear* have sped along and ' brought many changes to us all often when ' old facet come trooping to ut fresh a* in ; child-hoods happy days, we see the fairy ' form and smiling tace of Aline Stuart-lust * the same as w# did ten vears ago to-right. S. ilsaatsov BVTTS The Swiss Chicago. i -—- Sletck of the Burned City of (ienena ;|. The smoke from the smouldering embers of Chicago has hardly been "dissipated when there comes from be r yond the water intelligence that anoth er "City of the letke" has all hut suff ered the fate of its American sister, to which it bears so close a resemblance. .Geneva, if not as complete a waste as Chicago, has to narrowly escaped it . as to afford almost a parallel to our . unparalleled calamity. Private de spatches received here yesterday de scribed the city as still at the mercy II of the flames, and the citizens, al though resolute, appalled by a disaster which Europe is little prepared to meet. Some of the finest quarters of the city have beeu destroyed, including its Lherraan and Tremont houses. iThc full extcut of the calamity has jnot yet boen ascertained, and cannot be eetimated for some day*. Big Oil Strike. The Titusville Courier of the 23rd, says the McLaughlin well, near Cash Up City, which has been producing two or three hundred barrels per day with the tools in, was relieved of them yesterday, when she commenced flow ing at a tremendous rate, our infor mation, which is reliable, putting the ouantityat from twelve to fifteen hun dred barrels per day. This is undoubt edly the largest well struck in several years, and as it is situated on compar atively new territory, wemayexpect a turn of the tide operating now flowt ing towards the Clarion region to this new Eldorado —Cash Up City. The point ofthis new strike is between Pleasantville and Pithole, a little near er the latter than the former place, and some seven or eight miles from this city. We expect to see a rush of operators in that direction during the winter resembling that to Pleasantville when that territory was iu its prime. It would be quite an improvement, nay* the FitUburg Poet, upon the rogues gallery to photograph the fol lowing Radical Governors and exgov ernors, vix: Holden, of North (Jaro line ; Bullock, of Georgia ; Butler, of Nebraska; Scott, of South Carolina; Austin, of MinuetoUt; and Davis, of Texas. They ought to be preserved in some way for the edification of coming generation*. A man who could steal $50,000,000 like Bullock, or $30,000,- 000 like Scott, and still retain the con fidence of the leaders of his party, ought uot to lie consigned to oblivion, lie deserves a monument of brans, and Graut himself ought to deliver th* •ra tion at the dedication; All that he need My would he this: "Behold the thief of the period." That was rather a two-edged joke which was made not so long since in the Texas Legislature in this wise : At the late election some five Democrats were elected to the lower house to fill un expired terms, and on coming up to the clerk's desk to qualify took the customary oath to support the thir teenth, fourteenth, and fiflhteenth amendments. At this a sable member named Cotton, there unto incited by a carpet-bag Satan behind him, moved that whereas the spectacle of five Democrats swallowing all the amend ment-* in one day was plory enough the House do uow adjourn. From the Democratic side came a request that the mover read bis resolution over, and then was developed the facts that the Hon. Cotton could neither rend nor write, and was then holding the manuscript of his resolu tion upsidedown. —The Loudon Times goes for Grant's re-nomination. Of course it would, the Times is for that which sa vors of monarchy. HOUSE ANl> LOT FOR HALE ■ , The undersigned offer* at private ••l hi* house and lot, situate an Church lroi, Centre Hall.
