THE JOURNAL FOR 1872!
A Rara Chanoe to Saouro the Laaiing
Literatura of the Day !
CHEAPNESS COIBINED WITH SIDST.IV'TIALITY
Every head of a family, in the country, should
subscribe and pay for his county paper. Ile
that attempts to raise a family without giving
it the advantage of a newspaper, iu this en
aud christian age, is criminal y ueg
ligent. We think that every man, without
exception, raising a family, should spend from
viva dollars to TWENTY-FIVE dollars a year,
according to his means, for this kind of edu
cation, and we hope to lice to ace the day
when there will not be au exception to Isis
rule in Huntingdon county.
We want every body in the county to take
the Joiraistat, we don't care what party you
belong to—Republican, Democrat or Temper
ance man. Upon are a Republican, we tire
with you heart end soul; if a Democrat, you
ought to know vim% Ice have to say about
you, so t at you can act l snd vote intelligeaty,
and if you are a temperance man, we assure
you that no one will administer severer blow;
upon the whiskey bus ness than the Jonsxati
will, and if the whiskey men don't like it, why
let them do as they do with whiskey that is
distasteful, take the less of it. We believe
newspapers, like preachers and school te.tch
e:s, should be on the side of morality and good
order. But the JonasaL will uphold only that
which we, in our humble judgment, th.nk to
be right, regard.ess of consequences.
The development of the county, in every re
spect, will be its ccnstant and undeviating aim,
and in th:s respect it will be to every ma .'s
interest to subscribe fur it. We want to built
up Manufactures,. Mechanics and the Arts nu
every hand, and by subscribing fur the Jot-u
-nit you assist and encouragi , us in our design.
The next year will be an eventful one;
President, Vice President, Gov:rnor and Con
gress are to be elected and a Constitutional Coa
vention will be selected to remodel the Con
stitution of the State. We have outgrown the
old one, and if you want to keep posted you
must have the papers. Take the JOURNAL first,
and if you won't take it, in the came of intel
ligence, take some other one, but don't be
without the news.
For the purpose of distributing good Liter:-
tare, in ronuectiou with the Jonaxax., which
we think good enough of itself, we have ar

CIVIL SERVICE REFORM.
It appears to be the duterni.nati3n on the
part of Congress to thor uglily reconstruct the
C.vil Service system during the present win
ter. The Commissioners appointed by the
President under auLliority of Congress, hav ,
been in session in Washington for several
months. They have investigated the working
of the o.vil Service system, and have noted its
defects. They have availed themselves of a
knowl_dge of the systems of Eagland and oth
or European countries, and are prepared to
aid t ongress in preparing a new and more
lo.rfect system for this government and people.
GEO. WILKES LN POLITICS.
Congressmen, legal officials, and nearly ev

community, are mussed at the antics of the
would-be statesman, George Wakes, edaor of
the Spirit of lAt Times, a sporting paper of New
York. Mr. Wilkes has been to Paris, and he
returns to write up the virtues of the Interns

that or some other title, is destined, .te says,
to be a source of many blessings to the mass

TIM NEXT PRESIDENT.
A Senator, recently returned from Europe,
said to a friend in the Capitol a few days ago,
that alter a very thormigh and impartial sur
vey of the political situation he felt assured
that •'the Republican Fishy is strong enough
to e:ect almost any capable man who may be
uomivatel fur President; but with Grant as a
candidate there remains nothing but defeat
for any opponent." Ile continued, "Go abroad
and talk with the people in England, Franc.
and G.rm ny, about our late war, and you
will Sad that they connect the wh•. le struggle
w.th but two names, Abraham Lincoln ant
Gen. Grant, the one the successful President,
and the other the great military leader. The
same is true, in a measure, with regard to our
people at home. * * *. The world, *ma
especially the negroes, who cast so large a rote
iu the South, see no hand in it but that of
Gen. Grant. And so, go where you may, the
people are for Grant." These remarks are
pretty near the truth.
TDB NEW TORE HER LIA 3 LAST CANARD.
The story of the plot for the Impeachment
of the President in reference to the San Do
mingo affair, published in the New York her
aid, a few days ago, is without a word of trntb,
or even a basis for the rumor. The plot waa
made up in the herald rooms on 14th street in
Washington, and .aken mainly from Mr. Sum
ner's speech against the annexation of San
Domingo, made in the 11. S. Senate last win
ter. The impeachment was to be accomplished
through a combination of Democrats with Re
publicans opposed to President Grant. But
Democrats and disaffected Republicans say
that the first they beard of the plot was through
the pages of the herald. The story is too
silly, even for notice.
Secretary Bontwell was before the Commit
tee of Ways and Means on Tuesday the 12th,
and had a conference with the committee on
the tar ff iu its veneral, aspects Neither Mr.
Boutwell nor the committee adv semauy chan
ges duriner the present session, and the chan
ges that w.ll be made are foreshadowed in Mr.
Poutwoll's annual report. The Finance Com
mittee of the Senate, who have had the tariff
under consideration, have arrived at about the
same conclusion. A number of raw materials
used in manufacturing, and also certain drugs,
will be transferred to the free list ; the tax oa
coal will be reduced to 50 cents per ton, and
on hides, salt, and a few other items, to about
ono-half of the present duty.
Mr. Sumner's Bill to reduce internal taxer,
introduced by him in the Senate, Monday,
December 11th, provides that ale internal taxes
and duties exzept from the sale and use of
stamps, shall be abolished after the first of
July next, and the stamp duty on spirits shall
be increased 80 cents per ga lon aster that
date, Provided that no income tax shall be as
sessed on or after January Ist, 1872; but as
sessments made before such date shall be col
lected. It abolishes the offices of commission
er, deputy commissioner, solicitor, collector,
deputy code tor, assessor, and assistant asses
nor, supervisor, and detective, and bead of di
v:sion, and c'erks, and employees, under the
commissioner, shall cease on and after the Ist
day of September next ; and instead thereof
there shall be one collector for each state and
territory, who shall administer the law in the
sale of stamps. After the first of September.,
the duties of collecting the revenue as above
provided shall be under the Secretary of the
Some objection was made by Mr. Sherman,
m the ground that .he House claimed that al!
bills affecting the revenues should originate
air. Sumner said he did not propose to raise
the tax on whiskey. He was informed that
the actual tax was about 80 cents a gallon.—
There was the barrel tar, the tax on the whole
sale and on the retail cosier, and lastly the
capacity tax. II: proposes merely to do away
with all these and make the tax specifically 8t
cents a gallon. He thought this objection was
premature, and that it would better come in it
report from the committee. He stood here as
the representative of his constituents.
The bill was refereed to the Finance Corn
mittec. The bill Is a good one and Is popular
ticre, and i. will, is thought, become a law.
