DRUGGED LIQUROS.-Dr. Hiram Cox, liquor
inspector fur the State of Ohio, lectured in
this place last week, and created no little ex
citement amongst the liquor dealers and d rink
ors. During his stay here he examined sev
eral qualities of brandy, wine, and whisky.—
The best imported brandies and wines were
but poor imitations, containing sufficient poi
sons to kill the most moderate drinkers. The
only whiskies examined which were pure, were
Schneider's, Massey's and Isett's. The coin
mon article in general use, brought from
Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and other cities, was
shown to be horrible stuff.
JUSTICES' FEE BILLS.-1s the law provides
for a heavy penalty against any Justice of
the Peace who undertakes to discharge the
duties of his post without first putting up in
his office, in a conspicuous place, a copy of
the Fee 33i11, we give all newly elected Jus
tices this warning, free of charge. In order
to escape the meshes of the law they expect
to deal out to their neighbors, they had bet
ter procure a Fee Bill before opening an of

Prof. Walsh on the Superintendency---
To the Directors
The instructions from the department at
Harrisburg, say that the Superintendent
should be able "to teach the teacher of the
highest branches taught in the county," and the
plain duty of the directors requires that they
should faithfully endeavor to comply with
these instructions. But even among the
most intelligent of us there are preferences
and prejudices—not to say interests—that to
a certain extent, influence our judgments,
and make a regretable discord in many good
causes. Still, however, much preferences,
prejudices, or interests, may blind us, yet
persons meeting in conventions are often more
crippled—nay, their freedom of action is al
most fettered—by promises hastily made, per
haps, but which they now feel bound to re
spect. We have much reason to fear that
this will be the case at Huntingdon on the
7th of May.
Certain candidates for the Superintenden
cy, but by no means qualified for the posi
tion, have approached the directors and have,
by one way or another, obtained promises
from them. Now, should these promises be
kept ? It is unfortunate that they were made,
but since they have been made, should they
be kept ? The directors in accepting their
office made another promise, !implied, but
none the less binding on your honor and eon
science)—a promise to the 800 children of
Huntingdon county, to faithfully serve their
interests. Here, on the one hand, is a cun
ning, selfish, place-seeking man, to whom
you made a promise, and here, on the other,
is a great army of little children—not im
portunate, but defenseless—here they are,
your duty is with them, and what promise
can make you forget or neglect them?—
" But," you say, "promises between honora
ble men must be kept." The rule is good,
but there are exceptions. Suppose some one
puts a drug in your hand, and you, suppos-
ing it to be health-giving, promise to give it
to your little boy, but. afterwards you learn
that it is poison, will you keep your promise
and kill your boy ? Yesterday, or serer al
days ago, you promised a certain importunate
gentleman that he could rely on your vote, •
but since you made this promise, you have
informed yourself in regard to the qualifica
tions of the several candidates, and you are
now fully of the opinion that another is, in
fairness, entitled to the place. What will
you do ? If you are a true friend of the
schools and are willing for their good to fore
go personal preferences—if you are high
minded• enough to recognize no obligations
conflicting with the best interests of the chil
dren and the schools—if you are honest, ca
pable and faithful, you may keep your prom
ise with the fox, but only provided that you
can do so without risk to your sheep. Rath
er than see your lambs strang/ccl, what wrath
and abuse can you not hear from the fox ?
" A promise that is likely to result in wrong,
is often better broken than kept." '
A lawyer, doctor, or minister, might make
a good Superintendent, but a teacher of the
right stamp would seem to be best suited to
the position, and if such a one can be found,
it is to be hoped that gentlemen of the other
professions will not press their claims. Of
course, a distinction should be made between
those who were teachers several years ago,
and those who are now actually engaged
It is the wish of the department at Harris
burg, as well as of every true friend of the
Common Schools, to keep the County Super
intendencies entirely free from politics. The
County Superintendent should have the same
right as any other freeman to cast his own
vote, and to exert his own individual influ
ence for the benefit of his party, but his offi
cial influence is quite another thing, and this
he has no right to use, and should not use in
any way except in school matters, and for
their especial benefit. Hence, it is not deem
ed safe to give the Superintendency to a man
who has been much interested in politics, for,
almost in spite of himself, he-and his office
would become the tool of his party.
If a sufficient salary be paid him, the Su
perintendent should devote his whole time to
the business of his office, and no man should
be elected who would not pledge himself to
do this. Rut the fact that a man is now en
gaged in teaching, should not disqualify him
for the office, but the contrary. For every
man that is a man, will be found doing some
thing, and nothing has a closer connection
with the business of this office, than the busi
ness of teaching.
The Superintendent should be a man who
will favor not only the Common Schools, but
also the High Schools of the county—and not
only one but all of them. It is for-the ad
vantage of the county that its schools of all
grades should flourish, and the Superinten
dent should feel bound to encourage them and
promote their interests. A man who in place
of aiding and bettering our home institutions,
advises our youths to attend schools in dis
tant counties, misconceives his duty, and is
not fit to be at the head of our schools. He
that does not understand the interests of the
county sufficiently to encourage home enter
prise, and he that cannot do it with strict im
partiality—both of these are disqualified for
the office of Superintendent, and should not
expect to accomplish any good in it. No such
man should be elected.
Finally, in the man who is to be a success
ful County Superintendent, "literary and
scientific acquirements " are necessary ; a
true conception of all the School interests of
the county, is necessary; entire freedom from
the entangling alliances of politics is neces
sary; "skill and experience in the art of
teaching," are necessary; and a robust con
stitution, and energy, and that honest worth
which can command respect, are necessary.
Place a man with the requisite qualifications
over our schools, and good tidings will go
abroad fiom Old Huntingdon, that will glad
den the hearts of all of us. Our scholars
scattered over the State will be filling high
places, our schools will have a reputation
worth preserving, and we each will rejoice in
having done something toward accomplishing
so much good.

A few days since, Mr. Jas. 11. Beadle, of Huntsville, Al
abama, called ou ns and gave us permission to publish fur
the benefit of suffering humanity, the astonishing cure
which had been effected in the case of his wife by the use
of Dr. Hance's Vegetable Epileptic Pills. Ile informed us,
that at the time his wife commenced using the medicine,
her system was so entirely prostrated, by the number of
spasms she had undergone. as to reduce her weight to 100
lbs. Since she has been taking the pills, she has entirely
got over the spasms and has gained in weight and bodily
health. She.now weighs at least 200 lbs., and declares she
is in better enjoyment of health than ever before in her
life. Mr. Beadle also related the ease of Mr. Harrison
Lightfoot of the same town, who has been entirely cured
of the worst form of Epilepsy by these same pills. Mr.
Lightfoot's case was so bad that he never passed a week
without having an attack, often falling down in thestreet.
He has not had an attack for more than a year. Mr. Bea
dle thinks that if the pills ever fail in curing a case, it is
for the want of a proper perseverance on the part of the
person in taking them, as he feels assured from observa
tion in the case of his wife, that if they arc taken for a
sufficient length of time, they will cure any case. Sent to
any part of the country by mail, on the receipt of a re

"I have given some attention to the 'Biblical Reason
Why,' and feel bound to say that it, seems to me to con
tain a vast amount of information on Biblical subjects,
conveyed in a clear manner, illustrated by many valuable
cuts, and printed on good paper. It constitutes a valuable
addition to the apparatus of the Teacher, Parent, and pri

" I have examined the 'Biblical Reason Why,' and find
it to be a repartory of facts ou Biblical subjects, set forth
in a plain and intelligible way. Indeed, lam surprised
at the amount of matter that is compressed into this vol
ume. For use in families and schools, I consider it the
best book of the kind I have seen."

"The attention I have given your book satisfies me that
it cannot Mil to give important aid to all students of the
Bible, and especially that large class who have neither
time nor means to bestow on larger or more critical works.
The plan of your work is excellent, and the matter well
chosen. It should have a large circulation, It will cer
tainly be of great use in the study of the Holy Scriptures."
