ing to the people proper persons for
their suffrages at the coming election,
hereby doclaro :
First, That it is the foundation of
our political faith that "the Union of
the States is indissoluble, that tho gen
eral government is paramount in pow
er and authority, and that the position
of the States is subordinate and infe
Second, That devotion to tbo general
government as a unity- and to tho prin
ciples established and tho truths con
firmed by ,the war against the Rebel
lion is the first duty of the citizen.
Third, That the Judiciary should be
raised above partisan doctrines and in
fluences, to the and that there may
never again be enunciated the opinion
that the nation has no power to main
tain itself against treason, that no more
attempts may be made to nullify the
laws enacted by Congress, and no more
decisions that the draft, and the Nation
al currency aro unconstitutional.
Fourth, That we recognize our can
didate for the Supreme Judgeship, the
lion. Henry W. \Villiams, as standing
on the same high ground occupied by
Abraham Lincoln in 1860 and 1864,
and by John W. Geary in 1866, and
that we will give to him the same sup
port wo gave to them.
Fifth, Thtit Judge Sharswood's inter
pretation of the Constitution as judi
cially expressed in the case of Boric)
vs. Trott, upon the powers of the gov
ernment in relation to the currency, is
equally destructive of its ability to sus
tain itself in time of war—domestic or
foreign—and if his views bad been
adopted by the Judiciary generally, at
the time his dissenting opinion was an
nounced, in vain would the government
have struggled with the expenses of
the war, for, it is idle to suppose they
could have been carried upon a specie
Sixth, That the safety of the country
demands that Edwin M. Stanton, Sec
retary of War, should remain in the
position assured to him by Congress,
and that wo earnestly request of him
that under no circumstances will ho al
low himself to be displaced.
Sorenth, That to General Sheridan,
and the other District Commanders
who like him have determined to carry
out the Reconstruction laws in their
spirit, wo extend our most hearty
thanks,"and that General Grant. by his
opposition to the removal et Stanton
and Sheridan, has elevated himself
still higher in the hearts of his country
Eighth, That Andrew Johnson ought
to resign and that we call upon Con
gress, immediately after reassembling,
to put this desire of the people in prop.
er form and lay it before the person to
whom it refers.
Ninth, That tho situation and inter
ests of our Commonwealth demand the
enactment - of a free railroad law and
that our representatives in Cho next
Legislature are desired to fhvor such a
Tenth, That every praise is duo to
our representatives in Congress and
the late State Logielatgre for their
compliance with the wishes of their
constituents, their fidelity to the wel
fare of their respectivo districts of the
Commonwealth and the whole country.
.14love*, That wo will all labor dil
igently, honestly and fairly for the elec
tion of the candidates placed in nomi
nation this day; demi - dog them all wor
thy of support, and endeavor to give
thorn more than the usual majority;
The nominations were all made unan
imous' and the Convention adjourned
with three cheers for the ticket.
What TOverybotly Says must be True.
A. field of corn on Mr. Menurtrie's
farm opposite town, is said by many
farmers who examined it last week, to
he the best in the county. It was put
in with a drill and stands a stock to
every foot in the row. It will yield
heavy to the flare.

Church Dedication at Dudley
We were present at the dedication
of the Union church at Dudley, this
county, on Sunday last. Rev. V. Lu
ens, of Allegheny city, preached the
dedicatory sermon, in the morning, to
a crowded audience. Roy. Mr. M'Lain
of Lewistown, preached in the after
noon, and Rev. )Jr. Graves, in the eve
ning. The church is a neat two-story
frame hnilding, the tower story being
used for the School. It is owned by
three denominations, viz : Methodist
Protestants, Presbyterians, and . Meth
dist Episcopalians, and will be used by
each as opportunity affords, as they
have no regular pastors, we believe ___.
A collection was taken up to moot a
debt of $5OO, which we understood was
covered b J- subsoription.
Another ➢iyxtory to the Kart'Ows
On Wednesday evening last, at a
late hour, a man and boy, the latter
footsore and weary, passed down the
railroad through the Narrows, and on
Thursday morning the boy or young
man was found, about two miles this
side of Patterson, lying dead on the
track, one arm and the top of his head
completely, cut off. There are some
circumstances connected with this af
fair which give it a suspicions charac
ter, and taking into recollection the
late attempted' murder a few miles
west of that place where the boy .was
found, almost force the conviction that
he was foully dealt with and then
placed upon the truck, where ono of the
trains would be sure to mutilate the
victim. the first place, the man
who was with the boy on Wednesday
evening going eastward, was in Lewis
town the next day, and the railrbad
hands aver they did not see him re
turn that day. The boy alleged to a
watchman that ho had been at work
up the river during harvest, at $1.50
por day; and thus probably had some
money, while the man's story 'was en
tirely different. Both wore strangers.
The boy had on a blue soldier coat,
carpet slippers, and was apparently
from 16 to 1S years old. From the
number of deaths taking place on the
railroad, and the facilities for robbery
and murder in such wild spots like the
Narrows, we learn that it is probable
the railroad company will order all
foot passengers off - the road between
this place and Patterson. This would
bo no more than right, as no reason
whatever exists for any person travel
ing on the railroad through that re
gion when the towpath and old pike
on the north side of the river both
furnish much better walking.—Lewis
