Election of officers Lewistown Water
Company —Public Sale, Ac.
The Middle C reek Railroad.
The excitement attending the recent
election of officers of this company hav
ing passed away, it now becomes the du
ty of all to further its construction. We
do not purpose to inquire whether the old
board was right or wrong —whether, a:
some alleged, individual interests were
held paramount to public benefit—or
whether Tom, I)ick or Harry thus far
made anything out of it. The more im
portant questions are, Can the road be
made, and, if made, will it pay? To the
first we unhesitatingly answer that it can
provided our citizens generally and those
along the line will combine in mutual ef
forts to cfleet it. It course is such that
no rival interest is at stake, nor is it in
pursuit of a phantom or of a trade to be
acquired. On the contrary, it will open
a wide extent of country to the conveni
ences of coal as fuel, both for household
and field purposes, and all experience has
thus far proved that where such facilities
were brought into existence, its consump
tion ha* gradually increased until in ma
ny cases the supply lias scarcely equaled
the demand. If to this be added the
wants of furnaces already in existence, or
in process of erection, a considerable
amount of trade is ready at any moment
the road is capable of transporting it.
Trade begets travel, and if those who
come over the road to sell coal will find
articles they stand in need of, the like i
liood is they will purchase grain and a
hundred other matters and take them
home by the same mode of conveyance.
One half of the country to be traversed
by this road lias no market at hand by
which advantage can be taken of enhan
ced prices, except by wagon transporta
tion over bad roads whenever the weath-
er is unfavorable, and vast quantities of
bark, timber, lumber, shingles, firewood,
&c., will be brought within reach of sta
tions, which otherwise might remain use
less and almost valueless for many years.
Lands too would greatly increase in val
ue, not only on the line but for miles on
each side, and at a moderate estimate ev
ery bushel of grain, whether wheat, rye,
oats, corn, or buckwheat, would IK; worth
from five to ten cents a bushel more than
now in consequence of the creation of
near markets,oreasi !y transported where it
could be disposed of to bettor advantage
than at present. Xo better illustration of
the changes effected in small matters by
the construction oi railroads can he* given
than in the case of the fonusvlvaiiia,
which has gradually drawn new articles
into the vortex of commerce until even
raspberries, blackberries and whortleber
ries, (years ago a mere drug in out of the
way places) gathered along its line of hun
dreds.of miles can be disposed of at good
prices at every leading station in "any
quantity otiered. There is then apparent
ly inducement enough to make it, beeau.-e
its eastern and western terminus and
more than half, perhaps two-thirds, of
the intermediate country, is so much in
terested that lie must be blind indeed who
cannot see an ultimate benefit in its con
"\\ ill it pay ? We will not undertake to
suv that the road will pay 4, t;, s or 10 per
cent, dividend from the start, l>ecause so
much depends upon the amount that may
be subscribed, on unforeseen obstacles that
sometimes arise, upon divided counsels,
&c., that it is mere guesswork to venture
such an assertion; but there is nothing
unreasonable in saying that if the road
can be put under contractaud constructed
at the engineer's estimate, and stockhold
ers furnish the means to pay for its con
struction so as not to encumber it with
the incubus of a heavy debt, there is
every probability that it will pay Some

and once an established flvt thertvean be
little doubt of its ultimate success, unless
gross and culpable mismanagement should
characterize its controlling power.
Speech of General Cameron.
After the election of United States Sen
ator the members of the Legislature and
other friends of Gen. Cameron met in the
Locliicl dining room, and after the Gen
eral had received the congratulations of
his many frieuds lie addressed them as
GENTLEMEN: —Your greeting is very
kind and cordial, and i thank you lor it.
I thank God that in spite of the slanders
my enemies have repeated, tor twenty

a id the fact that goo 1 men, in some cases
bv the repetition of them were induced to
believe and repeat them.
Of the eighty-two Republican members
of the Legislature, my friends assure me
that sixty of them preferred me to any
other candidate, and would have voted
for me, rather than have witnessed my
defeat. The character of my supporters
is as gratifying to me as their numbers.
Any one, whoknowsanyihingof ourpol
itics, who will read the list of those who

honorable as that of the purest christian
moralist among my rivals; and quite as
unlikely to listen to any corrupt proposal.
Just there I leave the whole matter, put
ting all falsehoods, and animosities, and
prejudices, togethe under my feet; and I
go forward to the honorable duties to
which my native State has culled for the
third time.
Six years ago I thought that slavery
was the strength of the rebellion, and
ought to be destroyed without delay. I
wished also to arm the black men who
would volunteer. Of course I thought
that clothing a black man in the Ameri
can uniform clothed liim also with the
rights of an American citizen; and I am
always sorry to see a black soldier, and
reflect that even Pennsylvania denies him
the ballot—the only weapon whereby he
ein protect himself. I hope to live to see
the word "white" stricken from our own
Constitution, and the spirit of caste, based
upon color, utterly destroyed.
The South, however, is more controlled
by social influence than by |xditical prin
ciples. If you are wise and firm you may
possibly educate the rising generation
into loyalty, but there is no method o!
statesmanship which will make this gen
eration of the South loyal to the Union
and to the flag. The poison of thirty
years cannot he eradicated by the subser
viency of the President, or by the statutes
of Congress. Let u> look the truth in the
face. The Southern territory is disloyal.
The loyal men of to-day must guard their
children against another treasonable re
bellion. The < 'iKistitutional Amendments
and impartial suffrage will .help to do this,
but universal amnesty will help to undo

The pauper labor of Kurope is again
competing with our labor, and our manu
factures languish for want of protection
against it. Pennsylvania needs no assu
rance of my devotion to her interest in this

Inmates of Poor EEOIISCN.
Judge iiiowe, of the Allegheny Quarter
Sessions, lately had before him three pe
titions i com the Directors of the Countv
Home, setting forth that certain parties
therein named had become charges upon
the county, and that certain other parties,
children and grand-children of the indi
gent persons, were amply able to main
tain them comfortably for the future, and
to refund to the county such sums of mon
ey as had already been expended for their
support. In every case the Court fixed
the amount ol compensation which was
to be assessed upon theehildren and grand
The principle of law settled in these
cases, says the l'ittsburg Commercial, is
a very important one, and is this: That
the father, or mother, if able, is bound to
support his or her children or grand-chil
dren; and prevent them becoming acharge
upon the public—and the like duty legal
ly devolves upon the children or grand
children of aged, infirm or indigent pa
rents or grand-parents. If the parties
neglect so to do, the Poor Directors can
apply to the Judges of the Quarter Ses
sions, and if the ability of the parties is
established, compell repayment of what
ever public money has been expended,
and a sufficient sum per week for the fu
ture maintenance of the party.
Peter Marie, about 70 years of a~e
an old an much respected citizen of Lava
ca, Texas, died recently at that place. The
Commercial says: "While sleeping in
the daytime, he was flyblown about the
nose, which respited in the introduction
of the screw-worm. They penetrated the
head so as to cause his death. This is the
lust human death we liuve ever seen rel

Progress of Treason.
Since the decisions of the Supreme Court
by a majority of one that our government
must conduct war according, to peace
laws, and thus leave rebels and conspira
tors carry out their views until all power
to check them will he lost, and tiiat a re
bel cannot be subject to a test oath, loyal
men are beginning to pause and wonder
what new idea will next be acfrocated and
adjudicated by men who seemingly con
sider treason too great a crime to be pun
ished at all, or else* no crime whatever.
Under these teachings the rebel element
is daily becoming bolder, and no one need
be much surprised to see another rebel
lion spring up before or shortly after the
next Presidential election. As a prelude
to such a state of uitairs, the rebel papers
are moulding public sentiment south pre
cisely as they did before 1861. That our
readers may see we are not exaggerating,
nor setting down aught in malice, we
quote the following from the Richmond
Times of the lltli January, which, speak
ing of the next Governor of Virginia
" We want 110 man for that office of
doubtful or lukewarm devotion to that
cause over the toss of which even our wo
men are sti'l wcepiut/. We want no suc
cessor to Pierpont who was not with us
heart and soul during our struggle for lib
erty. We shall not canonize Hypocrisy
as the tutelar divinity of the ballot-box at
the"spriHg elections, by electing men who
were in sympathy with the Federals when
our Confederate soldiers were chasing
them from Bull Run ami the Wilderness!
"The great popular heart of Virginia
throbs at this moment in profound sym
pathy for the " heroes of the war." This
sentiment intensifies,grows stronger,and
glows with increasing warmth with each
attempt of an ungenerous foe to ostracise
and punish the Confederate warriors who,
for four years, performed such miraclesoi'
valor upon our soil. Even if these popu
lar idols were not, in education, execu
tive and legislative experience, the peers
of the most distinguished civilians in the
State, yet their years of exposure to death,
the daily privations, faithful vigils along
the Hues, fortitude, endurance, and splend
id valor give them a place in theaflections
of OUT people which no civilian can ven
ture successfully to dispute."
The men who utter these rebellious sen
timents and sneers at our gallant soldiers
are welcome visitors at the White House,
and how a President can counsel with
them, or brook their insolence, almost
surpasses belief.
E'i'izc nglil in York County.
One of the brutal prize lights which usu

on York county soil Tuesday of last week.
We append the following notice of the af
fray, furnished by the Harrisburg Tele

" A prize light took place to-dav, at or

Last night the train from Baltimore
brought several hundred rowdies to the

lives of the men in charge of the train
were endangered. M'Leod came from
New York yesterday, and was accompa

that the Rev. Andrew Stewart and wife

they formerly resided at Burkettsville,
Md. From this latter fact we infer that
the Reverend gentleman referred to must
lie the Rev. Moses A. Stewart, of the Re
formed Church. Rumor had it that such
a transition had taken place in his ease,
and to those who have been familiar with
his idiosyncracies for years past, the event
will not occasion surprise. All we have

that the friction of the tides upon the sur

A telegraphic despatch announce
that the Legislature of North Carolin
has "passed a hill granting a general par
don and amnesty to ollieers and soldier*
of the United States, and of the <\>nfeder
ate States, for offences committed against
the criminal laws of the State in the dU
charge of their duties." This law amy
prevent tlie prosecution of our soldiers
before rebel courts, but it is humiliating
to reflect that a State law of North ('arie
lina is needed to protect the heroes of the
Republic, and that they should IK* t'orinul
ly pardoned for obeying the orders of the
National Government! It is probable
the North Carolina legislators were anx
ious to shield I'elie 1 soldiers, who are
placed on an equal footing with Union
troops, and that tiiedb] lay of magnanim
ity is only made to cover the absolution
of traitors.
