- SENATOR SCOTT has our thanks for
a copy of the Congressional Directory:
IT is stated that Gov. Geary will be
a candidate for United States Senator,
next year, in place of Senator Camer
on, whose term expires March 4,1872.
'The nation which exports man
ufactured products, instead of the raw
material, attains the greatest wealth,
and confers upon its citizens the great

on„The Cubans are determined to
be free of the Spanish yoke. We bavo
just had news that they have whipped
the Spanish forces as badly in propor
tion as the Prussians have beaten the
French. Their day of deliverance is_
near at hand.
-The movement for a convention
to revise our State Constitution is
gathering importance us the day of
election approaches., In some of the
counties its advisability being made
an issue in the primary selection of
candidates for the State Legislature.
Urns Revenue officers in Phila.
delphia made a raid on Tuesday, on an
illicit distillery, and arrested the own :
era, one of whom was afterwards res
cued by the crowd. A file of marines
was' then procured and several persons
who assisted at the escape arrested
and bound over to appear at Court.
-seirTlm next Legislature of this
State will have the appointment of
the Congressional and Legislative dis
mem,- Thenrot'for the next ten - years,
the second for seven• Both of these
are now fixed by the same Legislature
for the first time since 1801. The same
thing will not occur again until 1941.
WUAT is to be gained by the propos
ed uniform series of school book& in
this State is not definitely explained,
but it is pretty certain that somebody
will try to push a bill to that effect
through the next Legislature. And
that somebody will make a nice job
out of it, if he can.
THERE are some rumors of more
changes in Grant's cabinet. If so, wo
would, like every other Pennsylvanian
be much obliged if the President would
recognize one of her iron eons. Who
it should be, we will leave to his own
judgment.
EXTRA PAY.—The vote in the 39th
Congress to increase the pay of Sena
tors and Representatives from $3,000
to $5,000 a year, stood 51 to 50. There
were' 85 dodgers, divided pretty even
ly between the two parties. It was a
nice calculation to carry the increase
by a single vote, and a nice specula
tion all round—as it put just $2,000 a
year in each member's pocket.
terThe census of 1860 showed that
three millions, nine hundred and fifty
three thousand, six hundred and sev
enty persons were in bondage in this
country. The census of the present
year will show that there is not a sin
gle human being in the Union who is
not a freeman in the full sense of the
term. And all this change in ten years
was effected by Republicans.
StirAn Ohio correspondent of the
New York Tribune says that ten of
the districts in that State are certain
to electßepublican Congressmen, the
Democrats are sure of five, and four
are doubtful with the best prospects
for the Republicans. The same paper
has advices from Illinois that the next
delegation will stand the same as the
present one—ten Republicans and four
Democrats. Gen. John A. Logan,
Gov. Palmer and ex-Gov. Oglesby are
candidates for the next Senatorship.
IT is believed that the Labor Con
gress which recently met at Cincinnati
undertook to work too many reforms
at once—even the Women's Rights
movement and Coolie question receiv
ing a share of their "labor." When it
was called for the interests of labor,
why didn't they keep the hobbyists in
the background, and then they could
have accomplished something. The
question of capital and labor, wo think,
is made to be more perplexing than it
really is. If let alone, it would settle
itself. But so long as there aro one
idea men allowed to talk, so long will
there be the agitation, just as there is
in almost every question, some of whiCh
are so trivial
,that they should not
have the name of "question."
For the Globe
Representative Delegate System.
Massifs. Ernrotts your issue of
the 16th inst., we discover among a
series of resolutions purporting to
have been passed by the late Republi.
can County Convention, one which
we, as delegates to than Convention
from Clay township and Three Springs
borough, denounce as a base slander
upon the uction of that body. The
resolution in question refers to the
"Representative Delegate System,"
and we deny that any such resolution,
in phraseology and Intent adopted
by that Convention. The manifest de
sign of this resolution is to deceive the
people and misrepresent the legitimate
action and purpose of their delegates to
the last convention, on the subject
above referred to.
The resolution which did pass, when
only a few delegates remained—prob
ably not over a dozen—and the very
last thing the convention did prior to
adjournment, was that the whole sub
ject pertaining to Delegate represent
ation should be referred to the County
Committee for their action, without
any instruction as to any particular or
specific plan or system they should
recommend; or whether that Commit
tee should recommend any system at
ail or not. But if the Committee did
conclude to recommend some plan,
that plan, as it was distinctly under
stood, was to be submitted at the next
delegate meeting (in August 1871) to
a vote of the Republican citizens of
each district, borough and township
respectively, and that vote should be
considered as equivalent to instructions
on that subject, to the delegates com
posing the next annual County Con
vention, in which and by whieb the
matter was to be finally disposed of.
The resolution printed in the Globe
states that the County Committee was
'instructed" to submit a particular or
specific plan, that plan being set out i
detail in the body of that resolution.
Now we aver the Committee was not
instructed by the Convention to submit
any specifically expressed plan ; but
that the whole matter on the subject
of Delegate Representation was simply
referred to the Committee for its ao
Lion—to originate, discuss, adopt or
reject, at its will or pleasure.. It is
true something like the plan embodied
in the Globe resolution, was spoken -of
in the Convention ; but it was not the
plan which the Committee was bound;
under instructions, to adopt and-submit
to the people.
The Convention in passing the reso
lution it did, did not contemplate
changing the present mode of delecate
representation so that it would affect
the next annual convention, and in
this it acted wisely, because we bold
no convention has the right, independ
ently of the voice of the people' at the
ballot-box, toiriltke any change vitally
affecting the established organization
of the party, or the Mode by which that
party keeps alive and sustains its or
ganization. Much less right has a
county committee so to act, without a
positive expression from the people, di
rectly on the subject, either through
convention or' otherwise. All meass,
urea of such a nature should originate
with the people in their primary meet
ings; or at least they should have, in
such meetings, the opportunity of ap
proving or rejecting nay proposed
changes in their established usages or
customs of the party.

te—lt is now charged that the se
cret history of the Fenian raids into
Canada shows that the British govern
ment bad in its pay many of the offi
cers of the brotherhood, doing its
work of treachery and espionage. An
Ottawa letter says that it will be of no
little interest to the friends of the poor
devils who fel I at Pigeon Hill to know
that one of the "Colonels" who sent
on his dupes to death was in the gov
ernment buildings at Ottowa a week
after, and left them with a cheque for
$3OO in his pocket.
Tur. WAR.—Since the last great en
gagements in Prance, AlecMahon and
Bazaine, the two French Marshals,
have been vainly endeavoring to effect
a junction to interpose a barrier to the
progress of Prince Charles, and Gen.
Steinmetz. The Crown Prince of
Prussia is reported to be within six
days march of Paris, and has at least
150,000 well trained troops undor his
command, while he may be opposed
in his onward march by raw levies,
poorly armed.
19 .The Treasury statement made
last Saturday shows a total gain for
the year ending with June of $ll9,
131,425. The total receipts from all
sources wore $556,935,818 and the ex
penditures $418,703,560.77. The ex . -
penditures include a large sum for the
purchase of sinking fund bonds and
leave a balance of $140,502,471.60 in
the Treasury. The statement is full.,
important and satisfactory, but not
unexpected.
THE Democratic managera in Lou
isiana are working hard to secure the
negro vote. The chairman of a prin
cipal committee of that State informed
a colored man •that negro delegates
would not only be received at the De
mocratic Convention, but welcomed
also;
M.- According to the immemorial
political tradition, the party controll
ing the last Congress preceding a Pre
sidential canvass will be successful in
electing their candidate. The Demo
cracy are straining every nerve to gain
the next Congress, and so . not to be
ruled out of the next Presidency.
fte...The State Central Committo at
its recent session in Altoona, fixed the
10th of March next for the State Con
vention, to nominate a candidate for
Supreme Judge. The question of a
Convention to amend the State- Con
stitution also came up, but it was re
ferred to the next State Convention.

Lewisburg & Spruce Creek Railroad.
MR. EDITOR :-It appears' that the
project of a Railroad from Lewisburg
to Spruce Creek is again resuscitated.
It is now fifteen or twenty years since
an act was passed for building this
road; and it appears strange, that
whilst other roads of less importance
are being built all round that this one
should be neglected.so long. Passing,
as this road does through a number of
the most beautiful and wealthy agri
cultural vallies of which the State of
Pennsylvania is so justly proud, we
trust that by the application of renew
ed energy it will now be accomplished,
iu order to stop that deterioration al
ready begun, and if possible give new
impulse to enterprise and indus
try. In 1843, C. B. Trego, then wri•
ting his Geography of Pennsylvania,
called upon your correspondent then
at , for information in
reference to Huntingdon county, and
the following is the description of
Spruce Creek as then given, and to be
seen in that work, viz : "On Spruce
Creek alone, the length of which is but
about ten miles, are two furnaces, sev
en forges, six grist mills, seven saw
mills and two woolen factories." Mr.
Trego pronounced Spruce Creek at
that time the most valuable stream of
water of its size in the State. And is
it not humiliating now, to perceive
that, instead at progress, there are
many Marks of retrogression in that
lovely valley.
And is it not a sin against the bowl.
ties of a kind Providence, to refuse or
neglect to open a way by which the
riches of His bounty may be brought
into market for the diffusion of wealth,
and the promotion of happiness. There
are those rich agricultural vallies of
pure limestone xvheatland, not surpass
ed in the State either for quantity or
the quality of its prOduction, surroun
ded with high lands, clothed in all the
gorcreousness ot nature's richest wealth
,There is fine white marble on the
farm of my departed Iriend Mr. John
Bailey, There are exhaustless mines
of Pipe Ore, from which is being man
ufactured as good malleable iron as is
to be found in the world. There is as
good moral society as you will find
elsewhere. There, over forty years
ago, a vigorous war was:declared
against intemperance, against fearful
odds, which, after years of earnest
conflict resulted in the most perfect
victory of temperance principles.—
There is as much to render society
prosperous and happy as should be de
sired. Let mean selfishness be laid
aside; let each individual learn that he
has an interest , in the success of every
other individual lawfully employed
Four or five forges aro now idle on
Spruce creek. Huntingdon furnace
has ceased operation from scarcity of
fuel. Pennsylvania furnace, which has
been a great benefit to society for over
half a century, has recently been en
larged at great expense, and it, too,
must soon cease to impart life to in
dustry and health to trade, if not ren
dered accessible to mineral coal by
railroad. Then lot there be harmony
action; If the whole Railroad can
'not be made, let it be finished from
Pine Grove to its western terminus.;
if that cannot be done let it not - fitil to
be made from Penna. Furnace.
There is where your correspondent
first breathed the breath of life; where
he lived nearly three score and ton
years, and until he consigned to the
grave the very last of his equals in
years, and companions of early life;
where he participated in as many of
the mingled joys and sorrows of life as
usually falls to the lot of man. But
though no longer a citizen of Spruce
Creek, I love it none the less because
my lot is now distant from it. I still
love to wander along its banks, and its
rill is music to my oars: And though
I have passed that period of life in
which I might be expected to partici
pate in any enterprise, still I have felt
it duo to my native valley, and my
few remaining friends, thus to spend a
few solitary moments. And should I
live to see the iron horse pass over the
very ground upon which I gamboled
barefooted in childhood, it will only
be one of the evidences of progress.

A Ilnicno Girth—CAMBRIA COUNTY
lIAS AN IDA LEWIS —lnstances of gen
uine heroism often happen that the
world knows little or nothing of. Au
instance has been brought to our at
tention which occurred quite recently
at Sulphur Springs near the Somerset
county line which is worthy of note.—
Carrie S., age seven years, the little
daughter of Mr. Jos. S. tare of the
Pittsburg Post, along with her mother
had been stopping near that place for
several weeks, and one day last week,
she in company with a young lady and
Miss Emma, daughter of Joseph Orris,
Esq., of Scalp Level, this county, aged
about thirteen years wore crossing a
brook at a shallow place to get to the
spring, when the child slipped upon
the mossy rock and was rapidly drift
ed by the current, into deep water.—
The young woman at once plunged
into the water to rescue the littki girl,
but being unable to swim, they were
both in imminent danger of drowning.
The girl Emma Orris, a good swim
mer, with great coolness and remark
able presence of mind hurried further
down the stream and venturing bold
ly to the rescue, succeeded, uftar they
bad sank twice, in saving both from a
watery grave.
The gratitude of the Parents toward
this heroic and self-sacrificing little
girl can readily be imagined and a few
days ago a beautifully wrought solid
silver cup, appropriately inscribed,
from the parents of Carrie, presented
to Miss Orris as an acknowledgement
of her bravery and successful efforts-

THE WAR IN EUROPE.
Reanrne'of the Situation
LONDON, 9.ug. 26.—The Times this
morning ban the following resume. of the
situation :
King William, leaving sufficient force
before:Metz, where the siege works
rise like exhatalations, joined the
Crown Prince, who was pushing on for
Paris. The movements of MacMahon
begin now to be intelligible. A refu•
gitive from Woerth, and avoiding
Metz, be passed through tho Vosges to
the Moselle, to F r aney, and to Chalons,
whore ho was reinforced by the Garde
-Mobile and volunteers. His obvious
aim has been to bar.the passages and
prevent the advance of the Crown
Prince on Paris. Affecting to disre
gard him, the Crown Prince moved on
his flank past the camp at. Chalons, of
fering MacMabon battle, which the
latter declined, retreating on Rheims,
leaving the Chalons camp to the Pros-
Slane. Since that time Rheims itself
has been abandoned. The obvious
motive throughout on the part of the
French bee been to avoid a fight. The
Prussiatis are now within a short
march of Paris,' where perhaps some
slight additional resistance may be
met.
PARIS, Aug. 26.—The environs of
Metz have been inundated by order of
the French authorities.
LONDON,
, August 28.—The following
is an official dispatch, dated Bar le.
Due, Friday night: The garrison of
Vitry surrendered on Thursday morn
ing. The Prussians captured sixteen
guns. Tvio*battalions •of the French
Garde Mobile were'annibilated by the
Prussian 'cavalry, and seventeen
French officeirs and eight hundred and
fifty soldiers captured. The Prussians
had ono major severely and three troop
ers slightly wounded.
LoNtioN, August, 27.—1 t is reported
that It battle occurred near; Rheims
yesterday. Heavy cannonading was
heard but the particulars are net re
ceived. The engagements was proba
bly between thd forces of MacMahon
and Prince Frederick Charles' army.
The Crown Prince at Bar le Duo bus
been joined by part of King William's
forces. The - United army is moving
rapidly, and will probably be befbre
Paris en Tuesday or Wednesday. The
great aim of the' King is to conclude
the Campaign as speedily as pcsaible.
PAnis, August 27, midnight.—The
following official intelligence has been
made public: Oa the 25th instant, at
nine'in the morning, Verdun was at
