AN EARNEST WORD TO THOSE
OF OUR SUBSCRIBERS WHO
HAVE FAILED TO PAY UP.
Those Who Owe us Nothing Need not
Read This---It is not Intended for
We hope, however, that every subscri
ber, who has not settled with us, will read
what follows and take advantage of the
suggestions: We do not desire to dun you,
and yet, for the life of us, we do not see
how we can avoid it. You fail to pay and
we need our money badly. If there were
only one, or two, or a dozen, or even a
hundred of you, we might very readily
stand it, but when you are told that out of
the sl6OO bona fide subscribers on our list,
not one-half of the number have paid up
for the year 1871, you begin to see that it
figures up au aggregate that will run our
establishment four or five months. But
independent of the inconvenience we sus
tain, in not having our money and in being
obliged to make our creditors wait, it is
only adding additional expense upon you.
And here we desire to say that there is no
man in Huntingdon county so poor that
he cannot take and pay two dollars a year
for his county paper. Where is the man,
we ask, who cannot save one dollar, in six
months, for a newspaper ? And as to the
relative influence of the newspaper, it is
next to the Bible; the latter teaches the
way to leaven, while ill, f,rtner teaches
the way of the World, and no one can ex
pect to make much headway, either here
or hereafter, without a pretty accurate
knowledge of both. But this is a digres
sion. The rich man just as frequently
fails to pay as the poor man. Why? Be
cause he considers two dollars a mere trifle,
and, we suppose, thinks we regard it in
the same light. We might were it not for
the frequent duns that arc thrust at us.—
But remember the ocean is made up of
drops of water and the desert of mere tiny
grains of sand. But outside of our needy
circumstances we would like to get our
subscription business to as near a cash ba
sis as possible. We can't have a very good
opinion of the subscriber who allows his
subscription to run for years without. ma
king an effort to pay up, and before any of
our subscribers have time to run up bills
we want them to pay and keep paid up.
Now, then, if any of our subscribers,
who are in arrears for 1871, will come for
ward and pay us EOUR dollars, at any
time up to November Court, we will give
them a receipt for this and the neat year,
or, in other words, we will receive payment
at the rate of two dollars per year. Don't
fail to avail yourselves of this proposition.
The smoke of battle has cleared away
and the Republican party is triumphant.
It is true that here and there a gallant di.
vision has been shattered and driven before
the. fearful onset of or antagonists, and
that trifling local defeats have been sus
tained, bat in the main our forces hale
carried down their adversaries in over
whelming defeat and we occupy the field,
but our antagonists, though defeated and
demoralized, are not annihilated, and we
would be sorry if they were. In a few
short months they will be scheming and
plotting the election of the next President
with as much assurance as if they had
been victorious from Maine to California.
Then it behooves us, since the smoke of
battle has cleared away, to reorganize our
forces and to make diligent investigation
for the weak points in our organization.—
What we desire to say hero has been sug
gested by that which we have seen and
experienced during the late campaign, and
we now direct attention to these matters
because we believe that the best interests
of the Republicau masses, for whom alone
we speak, depend upon their adoption.—
We, however, simply throw out these sug
gestiens, and if they are not considered
practical, and should not be adept-4, we
will not feel hurt in the least. We want
to do the best for the Republican party—
"this and nothing more."
In the first place, we regard the County
Committee as entirely too unwieldy—too
large. What in the wide world can be
the necessity for two members of the Coun
ty Committee fla each election district?—
The duty of a member is simply supervi
sory, and when you come to divide duty of
this kind, between two or more, our expe
rience is that it is never done at all. "What
is everybodys' business is nobody's busi
ness." And just as likely what one would
consider an effective campaign the other
would ignore. We would cut it down just
one-half, and make each member responsi
ble for the success of the ticket in his
election precinct. This would leave thirty.
six persons to get together instead of sev
enty-two. Can it be possible that a Com
mittee of this number could not be gotten
together more readily than heretofore ?
We think no one will question this. But
some one may urge that it is the duty of
the County Committee to appoint delegates
to the State Convention. We think not.
But if it is necessary to have two persons
from each district, for this purpose, it will
be just as convenient to call the County
Convention together, and it will have the
meritof having been elected directly by the
people, while the Committeemen are the
mere appointees of the delegates. We
believe, firmly, that the County Convention
alone should appoint Delegates and Con
ferees, and not those who have been brought
into being to fill a mere supervisory office.
In addition to each member of the County
Committee, in each election precinct, we
would have the Chairman of the County
Committee to appoint a Vigilance Commit
tee of two or :our active persons, of which
Committee the member of the County Com
mittee should be chairman, and whose duty
it should be to exercise a general supervi
sion over the precinct, and to appoint
sub-Committees for each school district, and
to hold the Primary Elections. In this
way every ltcspublican could be approached
.and brought out to the elect io
feature lies the greht secret ef succeco.—
Here is where the waii. )4ust Le doue,
Will our Republican friends adopt our
sug,gcstion ? •
The next feature we would have impro
ved is representation in the County Cal
vention In this age, when all eyes are
turned toward minority representation, we
do not want the Republican party to be
behind. We desire every man to be re
presented as nearly as possible. Herein
lies, we think, the great secret of Repub
lican success. We therefore think that
the Convention should be made up of del
egates representing, as nearly as possible,
an equal number of voters. In illustration
of our plan, let each precinct, or township,
ward or borough, elect one delegate for
each fifty votes or fractional part of fifty,
exceeding twenty-five, as shown by the
vote for the principal State or district office
of the general election of the year imme
diately previous. The following table will
exhibit our view of the matter, based upon
the vote for Auditor General, at the late
election, viz :
Barre° township 96
Brady township 73
Birmingham district 3l
Broad Top City borough.. 36
Cass township and bor..— 111

Whole number of Delegates.
The Convention would consist of 66 dele
gates instead of 75 or 80 as now, and dis
tricts would be represented according to
their vote, and not as at present, when the
little borough of Shade Gap, with her 10
votes, has an equal say with Porter, with
her 243. We have no desire to disparage
our friends in Shade Gap, far from it, but
is it fair that ten voters should have the
same weight in a representative body that
two hundred and forty-three have? Of
course,' if the object were to create a body
for a check upon a representative body,
as the Senate of the United States, it would
be altogether a different matter, but a Re
publican Convention ought to represent its
constituents according to their numbers.—
If any one will reflect, for a moment, he
cannot help but concede that such ine
quality, as above stated, is very unfair.—
We prefer a delegate for each vote as being
more in accordance with the received no
tions of representation.
We have thrown out these reflections
without consulting with any one, and we
hope to hear a general expression of opin
ion upon them.
SHALL AMERICAN OR ENGLISH
FURNACES SUPPLY OUR MAR-
KETS WITH PIG IRON?
In previous articles we have shown, from
official authorities, Ist. That the duty on
pig iron is lower now than for half a cen
tury past, with perhaps an exception of
four years; 2d. That England is rapidly
increasing her export of p:g iron to the
United States, vie : imports of fiscal year
ending June 30, 1870, value 02,500,280 ;
imports of 1871, value $3,106,490. 3d,
That England is sending to the United
States more pig iron and rails than to all
the world besides.
In the face of these startling facts the
"Revenue Reformers," so called, and Free
Traders, demand that the present duty on
pig iron, of $7 per ton, shall bereduced or
removed altogether. Ex-Conimissioner of
Revenue D. A. Wells, askg that it be redu
ced to $3 per ton; but Edward Atkinson,
of Boston, in a lengthy article in the St
lactic Monthly, II a. October, 1871, dem,nds,
iu behalf of the -Revenue Reformers,"
that "pig iron and raw steel, shall be add
ed to the free list," with other articles
named; and adds : "It is now evident that
the Tariff question must be gettled upon
principles of justice, and not upon the pro
tective theory." Mr. Atkinson is a leader
in the Revenue Reformers' movement, and
his "principles of justice" are to transfer
our iron industries to England, and reduce
our own workmen to absolute pauperism.
England is now producing a very large
portion of our rails and pig iron. Reduce
the duty to one-half the present rates, and
our iron industries will become paralyzed.
Remove the duty on pig iron altogether, as
the Revenue Reformers demand, and eve
ry furnace in the country will be closed,—
absolutely closed ! There is but one alter
native, anti that is, to reduce wages of
workmen to a level with thereof England.
Here are the comparative prices now paid
in each country :
Pudlers pep !Ds . $..05 $4.00
Pudlers helpers "
Heaters per day 1.90 4,37
Heaters helpers " .... .„„
Day laborers "
The difference in the price of pig iron
in England and in the United States is
caused almost exclusively by the difference
in the wages paid for labor. And what is
the result ? In France, Belgium and Eng
land men, women and children work in the
mines and mills, half fed and worse clothed;
without education, culture, domestic hap
piness, or social enjoyment, and despond
ing and hopeless; with no elninee in the
race of life, or hope of advancement. In
America the wages paid enables the work
man to live in a comfortable cottage, gee
‘l,rally his own, feed his family generously,
and clothe them respectably. His children
are educated and fitted for positions of
honor and trust; and he, by steady habits,
industry and economy, often advances from
the position of workman to that of owner
Comply with the demands of the "Rev
enue Reformers," and American workmen
will fall to the level, or within a shade of
it, of those of England.

THE TARIFF ON PIG IRON,
We reprint the Bellowing article to cor

Now that the 'Bureau of Statistics," at
Washington, has compiled and published
a book containing the rates of duties under
the several Tariffs from 1793 to 1870, the
opponents of a protective tariff can no long-.
er say, with safety from exposure, as they
have hitherto been doing, that the tariff
ou pig iron is higher than it ever was pre
vious to 1861. The tariff is lower on pig
iron to-day, than at any time previous,
within fifty years, with perhaps an . excep
tion of three years. Here are thediffer
ent tariffs, as given on the official authority
of the Statistical Bureau :

The people of Pennsylvania, by an over
whelming vote, which seems to have beep
irrespective of patty, have just decided
that their Constitution needs revision. It
was high time. We are impelled to proffer
a few suggestions, which we trust they
will dispassionately consider :
1. The Legislature just chosen should,
when first assembled, proceed at once to
pass an act giving effect to the popular
will. And, in order to keep the Conven
tion, so far as possible, out of the whirl
pool of a Presidential Election, that act
should provide for au election of delegates
not later than the Ist of May next.
11. The delg ttes thus chosen should
meet early in June, and spend a mopth
in laying out and distributing their wiirk
among the appropriate Committees.—
Should party spirit threaten to run high,
it may be wise then to adjourn over to the
second Thursday in November, when the
Presidential struggle will have been er
eluded and the wavea o f party spirit
have begun to subside.
111. We judge that it will be found ad
visable to increase the number of reprse'tda
tives in either branch of the Legislature.
Instead of 33 in the Senate and 100 in
the House, there should not lie fewer than
51 and 151 respectively ; and we should
prefer 75 and 201. A numerous body is
tar less readily corrupted than one
posed of few parsons. Population has
largely increased since the present num
bers were fixed, and a Senate of 75 and a
House of 201 members would give a lar
ger constituency to each member that was
first fixed at 33, the House at 100. At
all events, have each House consist of an
odd number, so as to preclude a tie be
tween the two parties and a consequent
inability to organise. .
IV. Do not fail to give what is impro
perly termed Minority (but which really
is Complete) Representation a fair trial.
To this end, would the State fairly into
25 Senate and 67 Assembly districts, each
eutbied to olt ok ie throe Ak e l iphom. , Author
ize each legal voter to cumulate his vote
if and as he thinks proper. For instance:
he may vote
thus or or
John Williams, John Williams, John Williams,
John Williams, John Williams, James Parker,
John Williams, James Parker, Charles Wallace,
In the first case, his vote counts three
for John Williams ; in the second, two for
John Williams, one for James Parker; in
the third, one each for Williams, Parker,
Linder this system, a majority of the
voters could always elect a majority of
the representatives, but a minority could
make sure of a minority of the representa
tives, unless it were less than one-fourth of
the eutire electorial body, which it rarely
is. Every voter would thus go to the
polls with a reasonable assurance that ,his
vote would tell in the election—thag it
would not prove a mere inellectual pro
test—that it would help elect at least one
Senator and one Assemblyman. There
may be admirable talent for legiglation
among the Eight Thousand ltepubdeall
Barks County or the Ten Thousaud7orthe
Northampton Congress District, bid itlics
smothered under a relentless Demouratic
majority, and can never make itself mani
fest. Just with the Fifteen Thousand
Democrats of Allegheny and the sine
Thousand of Lancaster. Why should not
these have a voice in legislation as well as
though they lived in other counties ?
They are citizens ; they pay taxes, and-are
drafted in case of need. Why gag and
fetter them ? We predict that the local
minorities, if allowed a representation
proportioned to their numbers, will elect
abler and better men in the average, than
the majorities do. We entreat Pennsyl
vania to accord to all her people, and -not
local majorities merely, a voice in framing
the laws under which they live.
V. As venality or corruption in office,
more especially in legislation, is the giant
evil of our day, the Convention will of
course deal with itsternly and thoughtfully.
We submit for the consideration of its
members the Article on this subject ma
tured by our State's Convention of 1867
ART. XIII, SECTION 1. Any person hold
ing office under the laws of this State,
who except in payment of his legal salary,
fees or wq , :,isites received or consents to
recieve; directly or Indirectly, anything of
value or of personal advantage, or the prom
ise thereof, for performing or omitting to
perform any official act, or with the ex
press or implied understanding that his
official action or omission to act is to be
in any degree influenced thereby, shall be
deemed guilty of felony, and Q 9 conviction
shall be . punished by imprisonment in a
State prison, for a term not exceeding fiveyears, or by a fine not exceedingng five thou
or both, in the discretion of
the court. This section shall not effect
validity of any existing statutes in rela
tion n the offp9pe of bribery.
Sze. 2. Any person offering a bribe, if
it shall be accepted, shall not be liable to
civil or criminal prosecution therefor,
But any person who offers or promises a
bribe, if it shall be rejected by the officer
to whom it is tendered, shall be . ;deomed
guilty , of an attempt to bribe, which : is
hereby declared to be a felony, 9bfi ' on
conviction shall be punished as provided
in the first section Of this article.
Su, 3. Any person charged with re
ceiving a bribe, or with receiving a bribe
or with offering or promising a bribe that
is rejected, shall be 'permitted to testify in
his Own behalf in any civil or criminal
SEC. 4. Any District Atterney, wh
shall fail faithfully to prosecute the viola
tion in his county of any provision of this
Article which may come to his knowledge,
shall be removed from (Alice by the Gover
nor, after due notice and an opportunity
of being heard in his defence. The expense
which shall be incurred by any county,
in investigating and prosecuting any charge
of bribery or attempting to bribe any
State officer or member of the legislature
within such county, and of receiving bribes
by any State officer or member of the Legis
lature in said county shall be a charge
against the State, and their payment by
the. State shall be provided by law.
—The Constitution which embodied this
Article was voted down by Tweed and his
confederates—defeated by the votes of
men who qualified themselves for the task
by taking care never to read the document
they condemed. Had that Constitution
been adopted, our City would have owed
twenty Millions less than she now does,
while Tweed's fortune would have been
Millions lessthan it is. If a vote could
be taken this Fall, the Amended Constitu
tion would be overwhelmingly ratified.
VI Finally, elect your ablest, wisest,
ripest, purest men to the Constitutional
Convention, regardless of politics. Our
Constitution was voted down because Re
publicans made it. We trust that reason
may not prove conclusive in Pennsylvania.
We infer from partial returns that Ohio
has also decided to have a Convention.—

Prrrcattnecn, Oct. 22, 19/1
DEAR Jouas.tz :—lt having been some time
since I wrote you, and thinking a line might
not come amiss to aid it filling tip a column
when the editor may not be in the humor for
writing, I seat myself (as letter writers say)
for the pleasant task. But what shall I write
about? Certainly not about the late lection—
for I feel a little demoralized on that score,
being a Democrat ; only a little, however, as
two of my votes were not lost, having in one
instance made a "departure" from my usual
custom and voted for a Republican, my clever
friend and skillful physician, Dr. tanton ; in
the other case a Democratic commissioner was
elected, the whole force of the whiskey inter
est (a very unusual oenurence) being in fayor
of our candidate because of their opp , sition
to the mail who lodgeil two of the old com
missioners within iron bars in a certain build
ing-in Allegheny city, Still, I confess, I felt a
little demoralized as I did not expect our
state ticket to be so badly beaten and in order
to recover I set out early on Wednesday morn
ing for Crawford and Eric counties, stopping
on my way at New Brighton, the home of the
Auditor General elect, and also at New Cas
tle, the county seat of Lawrence county, the
home of the Surveyor General non-elect. Here
I learned of the death of a gentleman who
would have been one of our policy-holders
had he lifted his policy, but, instead, his wife
is a widow and his children penniless. It al
ways happens that men Who are not insured,
or who throw up their policies after having
paid for several years, die before their time,
or rather at the wrong time for their families.
But I was saying something about New Castle
when the memory of this unfortunate man
came upon me and I bad to refer to him as a
warning to others.
Now Castle has the appearance of having
once been a flourishing town. Some little
manufacturing is still done there but not as
much as there should be, it raiglit be called
a wealthy town but her wealth is hoarded and
is not used to build up and develop the coun-
A little farther up the E. & P. R. R. we find
Sharon, a truly busy place. In the last sen
tence I say we, for I was joined by a traveling
companion, (a gentleman of course), and then
it sounds—well "you know how it is your
self," We were on our way to Meadville and
soon we were transferred to the Atlantic and
Great Western R. R.—what a transfer I from
an express train to a slow freight, We tried
to sleep but would rouse up after a sudden
jerk and go in search of our beaver which had
been jerked out of its place and was rolling
around promiscuously through the car. By
and by we got into a tolerably sound sleep
when the conductor shouted out "Meadville,"
and looking at our watch we were forty mi
nutes ahead of time owing to the fact that we

The McHenry House ought to be the best
hotel here but it has somewhat degenerated
from what it was one year ago. It now bears
a rather dilapidated appearance—needing only
repairing and a new landlord or something of
that kind, one hardly knows what—in order
to make It a first-elan house. One thing the
traveler likes about it, you are placed on the
first story in large airy rooms, at one time
well furnished, and you feel a degree of safety
from fires, for no one can help dreaming of
the fate of the Garden City, as in the event of
such a calamity you need only raise the win
dow and step out on the ground floor. Mead

here and is enjoying the patronage it so well
deserves. There is some manufacturing done

believe, is the Meadville Woolen Mills. The
production is about 5,000 yards of I goods
per week; the yearly production reaching
about $250,000. In addition there are several

CHICAGO, October 18.—The South
Side, which now depends upon oil and
candles for light, will soon be furnished
with gas from the North Side works of the
Peoples' gas company, which is pushing
rapidly. Arrangements have been made
for establishing a connection through the
La Salle street tunnels.
One of the engines lately destroyed at
the city works was set in motion last even
ing to supply the unburnt district of the
South division with water. To morrow
evening it is expected the West and South
divisions will be supplied with all the water
that may be necessary for practical use.
This is the tenth day after the great
conflagration, and each day brings with it
fresh occasion for encouragement. The
city is orderly, relief abundant and busi
ness is resuming. Rebuilding has commenc
ed and there is a much more healthy feel
ing abroad in the community than the
most sanguine had anticipated on that ter
ribly gloomy day after the appalling calam
ity. We see and hear the most cheering
evidence of a firm purpose and of a liber
al, hopeful and brave spirit among our
stricken people, which will much sooner
than the world expects rebuild our deso
lated city on the very grounds of its pres
It was thought by some that the reason
there was no rush on the banks, especially
the savings banks, yesterday, was because
the fact of resumption was not generally
known. The report from all the banks to
day is substantially the same as of yester
day. Everybody knows the money could
be drawn out if the depositors wanted it,
and for that reason no one wants it except
as it may be needed for some immediate
use. The business with the interior banks,
as with the New• York banks, is not so
systematical as formerly. The thanks of
Chicago, not simply of the banks, but of
every citizen, are especially due to the
banks of New York and the interior and
northwest for the grand stand taken in re
lation to their Chicago correspondents. In
the darkest hour of the disaster, when the
loss seemed greater than it actuallywas not
one of them flinched.

PROSPECTUS FOR 1872.
A Rqirmentative and Champion of American Art.
An Illustrated Monthly Journal claimed to he the
handsomcet Paper in the World.
"Give my love to the artist workmen of Tux ALDINE
who aro sttiving to make their profession worthy of ad
miration for beauty, as it has always been for usefulness."
—Henry Ward Beecher.
Tee Aititivx, while issued with all the regularity, has
none of the temporary or timeiy interest characteristic of
ordinary periodicals. It is an elegant miscellany of pure,
light, and graceful literature, and a collection of pictures,
the rarest specimens of artistic skill, in black and white.
Although each succeeding number affords afresh pleasure
to its friends, the real value and beauty of Tax Atm. will
be most appreciated after it has been bound up at the
close of the year. While other publications may claim
superior cheapness as compared with rivals of a similar
clan, Tax Amaxx lea unique and original conception—
alone and unapproached—absolutely without competition
In price or character. The possessor of the volume just
completed cannot duplicate the quantity of fine paper and
engravings in any other shape or number of volumes for
ten time, its cost.
The labor of getting Tea Ammua ready on the press is
so great that reprinting is out ot the question. With the
excel:. ion of a small number specially reserved for bind
ing, tbe edition of 1871, is already exhausted, and it is
now a scarce as well as valuable book.
NEW FEATURES FOR 1872. ART DEPARTMENT.
The enthumiastic support so readily accorded to their en
terprise, wherever it has been introduced, has convinced
the publishers of Tex ALDINE of the soundness of their
theory that the American public would recognize and
heartily support any sincere effort to elevate the tone and
ateodard of illustrated publication. That K. many weak
ly wicked sheets exist and thrive is not evidence that there
Is no market for anything better—indeed the success of
Tan ALDINE from the Mart is direct proof of the contrary.
With a population so vast, and of such varied taste, a pub
lisher can choose his patrons, and hie paper is rather in
dicative of his own than of the taste of the country. An a
guarantee of the excellence of this department, the p ib
!inhere would ben to announce during the coming year,
specimens from the following eminent artiste:
W. T. Richards, Wm. Next, Wm. Beard, George Smiley,
Aug. Will, Granville Perkins, F. 0. C. Barley, Victor
Neblig, Wm. B. Wilcox, James if. Beard, James Smiley,
R. E. Pignet, Frank Beard, Pal 1 Dixon, J. How.
THE VOLUME FOR 1372 wil contain nearly 300 pages,
and about 250 fine engraving. Commencing with the
number for January, every third number will contain a
beautiful tinted picture on plate paper, Inserted as a

The eibristmaa number for 1872 will be a elendid vol

and, although retailed at $1 will be seat without extra

A CIIROMO TO EVERY SUBSCRIBER was a very pop—
ular feature last year, and will be repeated with the pres

duced, at great expense, the beautiful oil painting by
