Wednesday morning, Moh. 3, 1869.
The "Globe" has the largest number of
readers of any other paper published in the
county.' Advertisers should remember this.
To Oar Friends and Patrons,
'Until we give notice to the contrary,
we issue to all paying us money
on subscription to Globe, advertising,
Sob work and old stare bills, chance
checks for presents in our Enterprise.
Now is the time , to subscribe, adver
tise, have your bills, etc., printed, and
for all indebted to• us to pay up. We
want everybody to have a chance for
the beautiful and substantial Chamber
Sett of thirteen pieces worth $25.
tfir•What Pennsylvania wants is a
Registry Law, to prevent "repeating"
, and -ballot - box stuffing. The present
Legislature will have failed to do its
duty, if this law is neglected.

Legislature adjourned on Friday last,
until the &Wiest., in order to give the
Members an opportunity to attend the

Chief Clerk McPherson, of the
House, will not only omit the nameb of

-413 usetts; has written a letter to Mr.
Blaine, of Maine, withdrawing from
the contegt for the Speakership of the
XLl'st Congresi,which virtually leaves
a clear field open to Mr. Blaine, as all
or nearly all of the New; England States
will now support him, thus making his
election almost certain, as Dawes was
the most' prominent candidate against
him. • ,
Who is is be the Officer from
Pennsylvania ?

cians Are , actively at work on Grant,
bat have failed•to: make anything out
of him, unless 'we except Cot. McClure,
who, called on the General last week
to urge. the claims of Goy. Curtin.
That: interview settled one point, viz.,
that Gov. Curtin Will not get a seat in
the Cabinet. That point being debli
nitely 'settled, the names of a dozen
other gentlemen have sprung up, spec
tre like; but all is speculation, and as
we expect to give the Cabinet in full

cupy our space by useless conjecture
and idle surmises. • •
FAIR: Some newspaper cor

For instandet A - Washington Corres
pondent of the Beater Radical signing
kiniself ap, persists in grossly mis
representing Senator Scott, and put
ting.wOrdtrc,into' his mouth' which ho
never uttered. l , Week before last he
stated ; that Burley, of Blair county *, had
Scott's. written pledge to appoint him
(Burley) U. S. Marshall of the l'irest
ern District of Pennsylvania, and, last
week the same writer says "it is ru-
Mored that Senator Scott has signified
his wish to General Grant that Penn

These:assertions aro false in
every partidular; and wo would advise
"Nap" to either quit writing for news
papers altogether or else step pinking
a false recOrd fora man who is abun
dantly 4blp to make one for himself.
Fair play Give Scott a chance, and
hp will speak for himself.
Senator Scott.
To,naOrroW at,l2 o!clPek,high noon;
Jebn Scott will be sworn in as a United
States Senator for years. To his
immediate friends and neighbors, it is
ah event ' importance:
Much is expected of bim by his friends,,
and they will not be disappointed.
Known as.he is in this community, we
need no further evidence:Of his ability
to make for himself a world-wide rep
utation ae - a statesman and an orator.
He goes there comparatively unknown
outside of the State, but in his place in
the Senate; it will soon be found that
be is the peer of any man on that
floor. With the people of the country,
be has 'yet - to Millie a reputation, and
that he will do . sq feel warranted
in assuring thern ; that it, will not be
long until they Warn• to look up to•
as one of the most brilliant, gifted and
upright Senator Pennsylvania ever
bad to represent her. He - goes to,
Wa`shington with Out a blot or blemish.
qion liisefiaradter, and we defy any,
fnitril,iing;tO put, his finger upon a
single act of his, that, will for a single
030Miinfeally.,his fair faino: E) Honest,
able and of unimpeaclattle integrity, he
has been elevated to the position with
a pledge or promise to il

State Temperance Convention.
The State Temperance Convention
met in Harrisburg last weeki Jnr the
purpose of devising moans to pfohibit
the manufacture and sale of all intoxi
eating liquors. From a number of
resolutions passed by that body, we
extract the following:
Resolved, * * "We do recommend
the formation of a prohibitory league
for the securing of proper men of set
tled temperance convictions and prim
! tico in every county, senatorial or rep
resentative district, for legislative and
local offices, whether nominated by ex
isting.parties or not." * * *
Now, we are just as much in favor
of Temperance and will do as much
for the cause as any man in that Con
vention but we protest against the
blow aimed at the Republican party
by the above recommendation, for
every intelligent man knows that nine
tenths of the Temperance men belong
to the Republican party, and if the
Democrats cats divide and distract our,
party by making an issue of temper
ance, they will do so atm ride into
power, through our folly, for every
man of them will vote the regular
straight out, Simon-pure "Dimmycrat
le" ticket, while the' Republican tem
perance men are being deluded into
voting for what they think a, purely,
temperance, but in reality nothing but
a regular sot up Democratic ticket.
Again, we do' not believe that the
people of this country can ever fie
driven into prohibition. The "whis
key ring" is too strong for any body
of men to attempt to break down.
The "ring" is rich—immensely rich—
and, will meet their antagonists at
every step. Moral suasion is what
we want, and what we must have
before we can hope to make in
roads upon the liquor traffic. if you
wish to reclaim a friend from intern,
perance,. do you go to work and abuse
him ? Certainly not, But you at•
once show him the evils' of his indul
gence, talk to him, plead with him,
coax, pray and promise him every
thing, if he will only reform. If' you
cannot succeed in that way, there is •
no use in resorting to violent means,
for then he becomes more determined
'in his own ruin. So with the masses.
The rule is equally applicable to both,
and we think it strange that our lead=
ing temperance mon, do not see it in .
the same tight, Liquor is a curse to
every natiOn upon the face of the globe,
and we could•wish that every drop of
the poisono'u's ; drug might be throivii
into,sea or somowhere else, but this
cannot be until •our• temperance men
- resort to Moral suasion and stop threat
ening to do this, ,that and the other
thing, if prohibition is not inimadiaiely
brought about.
The Public Debt;
The House of Representatives, under
load of Gen. Schenck, did a noble
work on •Wednesday last, in enacting,
1: That the Public' Debt of the United
States is payable and will be paid in
Gold or its equivalent; , and 2.. That
contracts henceforth made payable in
coin shall bo duly enforced by law.—
The voto against striking out the first
proposition was very strong-129 to
51and the bill passed by 119 Yeas to
61 Nays—almost two to one. Tho
facts . that.tho bill asserts the policy of
an early return to Specie Payments
and paves the way therefor add to our
satisfaction at this result. •
We cannot doubt .that the Senate
will concur by a vote at least equally
strong, and that the
,hideous monster'
Repudiation ivill.thas meeive a second
staggering blow. In .fact, the election
of Gen. Grant settled what this bill
more precisely declares. We shall
not repudiate—we shall not flounder
forever in the slough or Suspension—
we shall pay our National Debt, prin
cipal as well as interest, honestly and'
faithfully. Such being the truth, it is
high time that our Public Credit ovin•
ced the popular faith in it. - ,

The Darien Canal,
An article in Putnam, for March, on
the Inter-Oceanic Canal across the
Isthmus of Darien embodies a great
amount of information of especial in
terest at' the present moment. -It is
estimated that the saving in distance
by the canal will be es. follows : New
York to Calcutta, 4,100' miles, -to
Canton, 8,900• miles; to Shanghai,
9,600 miles; to Melbourne,
3,340 miles; 'to Jeddo, Japan, - 6,490
miles. Here•is an immense savilig" in
distance which is, invaluable to our
commerce. Another point to be con
sidered is that a canal .would enable
vt s els to pass from . ocean to ocean
without cargo; that a smaller class of
ships Could be-employed in the carry
trade—vessels whose safety would
be endangered by a passage round the
that the East India products
would be brought so much nearer to
our doers that their use would be
more general than now ; and above
all, that America would become a
most formidable rival to Europe in the
already rapidly increasing East India
trade. It is estimated that the com
merce around• Cape Horn and over
the Isthmus of Panama now -amounts
to - -about 8,500,000 tons annually, at
an expense of say, $lO per - ton making
a total of 835,000,000 Per year. Sup-
pose half this expense- should be saved
by the construction of a canal, would
not the enterprise pay, even if its buil
ding should absorb millions ? The
Panama railroad cost nearly $9,000,000
and nearly paid for itself in' the- first
seven years. The road is now paying
handsomely and rewarding its stock
holders - with heavy dividends. The
trade of the "United States, England
and Fiance, that would, in all proba
bility, pass through the canal, - has
been 'estimated at $467,830,000, and
as these figures were - made up after
careful study. of the subject, they way
be deemed very correct. It is estimated
that the saving inn money to ,the-trade
of the United.. States at $36,000,000 ;
trade of England, .89;950,000; to the
trade of France, $2,180;000 ; and to
the trade of the combined world, $49,-
500,000. Should the trade-of the world
increase in the same . ratio,--100 per
cent—fur the next ten years, that It
has fcr the past ton, there will accrue
. saving of $100,000,000, when the
canal finished,
