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 struction. "\\ 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 thingfrom the day business is commenced, and once an established flvt thertvean be little doubt of its ultimate success, unless gross and culpable mismanagement should characterize its controlling power. Mi .TBS&JS 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 follows: 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 vears, mv fellow citizens, who have seen my life from d;iy to <iny * liiivo al\v.i\s stood bv mv side and helped me to repel them. Tins hist struggle of my political life lias ended in victory. I desired this as an answer, to vindicate my honesty to mv children and mv friends. 1 now pro pose to put these slanders behind me, and t > forget alike, the liars who coined them, 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 voted for in' will find names as pure ami 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 it. Of Andrew Johnson 1 said iong ago that lie was a traitor to his party, ami an ene my of his country, and a bad man. lie has clone many bad things, but nothing worse than ottering theotlices of the coun try to those few unprincipled men who agreed to desert and betray the great Re publican organization for his patronage. He joined the Democratic party long ago. He has a rigiit to give tiiem the offices, but he has no right to dispose of them at auction to weak-kneed Republicans. 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 regard, which is the interest of the whole country. I will continue to labor in sea son and out of season to protect our man ufacturers from ruin, and their workmen troui being thrown outof employment,or their wages reduced to starvation point. For I hold that the true welfare of any nation depends 011 the welfare of its labor ing-classes. Gentlemen, I trust that this is my last iKii lieal struggle. 1 have nothing more t > desire, and 1 hope we will ail forget the idtterness—the unjustifiable bitterness—l think, of the late contest. For my part 1 win try to act as a representative of all the Radical Republicans of Pennsvlvania, without regard to past differences or dis sensions. \\ Ith my temperament I can not forget my friends who have stood by me so nobly, but I will try to forget—and forgive—the unjust calumnies, ami the l*)litieal opposition I have experienced. 1 he vote in the Legislature stood, 81 for Cameron to 40 for Cowan. The vote stood in the Senate, Cameron 19, Cowan 12; in the House, Cameron 92, Cowan .37. 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 children. 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 -e 1 " tliid CaUBe ' t,ut is not at al l 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 says: " 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 ally occur near the larger cities, took place on York county soil Tuesday of last week. We append the following notice of the af fray, furnished by the Harrisburg Tele graph of that day: " A prize light took place to-dav, at or near Goldslx>ro', York county. The com batants were Sam Collyer, of Baltimore, and McLeod, of New York. Collyer, ac companied by several personal friends, ar rive i at (loldsboro', on Sunday night.— Last night the train from Baltimore brought several hundred rowdies to the same place. No less than seven robberies were committed on the train, and the plugs were armed to the teeth, and the lives of the men in charge of the train were endangered. M'Leod came from New York yesterday, and was accompa nied by a large number of theollsCourings of that city. No less than thirteen rob beries are reported to have been commit ted in the cars between New York and Harrisburg. The tight took place in an open field one-half mile above Goldsboro'. Forty-seven rounds were fought in fifty eight minutes. Collyer knocked down McLeod three times and was declared the viet >r. DcsSrucfivp IFire in Jolmsfown. An Entire Mock Consumed. —At two o'clock on Sunday morning last occurred one of the most destructive fires that ever visited Johnstown. Some gentlemen j>:i--4ng up Main street at that hour dis covered that the hat store of George Turn er, three doors from the north-east corner of Main and Franklin street, was on fire, andatoncesotinded theularni. The flames spread, till they enwrapped the grocery store suid dwelling of Frederick Border, the drug store of C. T. Frozer, the book store of Alex. .Montgomery and the law office of J. F. Barnes, Esq., overhead the saddle and harness establishment of 11. M. Lewis, the ladies' dress goods store of Miss Mary J. l'arke, the clothing store of Isaac E. Chandler and the adjoining resi dence of James Williams, allon Mainst., and the grocery store and residence of David Greed on Franklin street. Captain Thomas Gore owned all of the buildings destroyed except the one l;ust named. His loss is not less than $6,000, upon which he has an insurranceof $1,400. The other building was owned by Miss Kitty Hamilton and James Williams — loss s3,3oo—fully insured. Mr. Williams lost $250 in furniture, on which he had no insurance. The other losses are about as follows: C. T. Frazcr $-,soo—insured; F. Border, SI,OO0 —no insurance; Geo. Turn er, $3,-00 —insured for $3,000; A. Mont gomery, S4O0 —insured; J. F.

McKinney.on the opposite side of Main st., broken by the heat, sll-s—no insurance. The Lycoming Fire Insurance Co. loses more heavily by the tire than any other company. Its loss will be over $6,000. The other companies which suffer are the N. American, Blair, York, Cumberland, Cambria and Merchant's Mutual of New Jersey. The cause of the fire is a mystery, and we will indulge in no speculations con cerning it. — Johnstown Tribune. Two families of Carter co., Tenn., named Itolierts and Johnstone, have been waging a bloody war between each other for twenty years, during which time four teen men belonging to these two families liave_ lost, their lives. On the evening of the sth inst., the vendetta came to a bloody end in the streets of Elizabethtown, Tenn., by the sole surviving males of the Huberts and Johnstones. They engaged in a personal altercation which resulted tatallv to both. The domestic war origi nated about a very trilling aft'air. Twenty-two negroes were burnt in n jail in South Carolina. The only white eon viet in it was rescued. Gone to Rome. —One secular paper of Hagerstown, Md., recently announced that the Rev. Andrew Stewart and wife had lieen received into the Uoman Catho lic Church at that place. It is added, that 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 to say is, we wish him 110 harm, but hope he has at last found h's proper spiritual home and will be happy in it. — German Reformed Mess. AYKR'S AMERICAN ALMANAC is now ready for delivery gratis, by Clwis. Kit/., to all who call for it. Among the prob lems of high sciencd which the Doctor presents in it, is the startling assertion that the friction of the tides upon the sur face, retards the earth's revolution upon its axis, or holds it back with a force of (KMX) millions of horse jxnvers. llence it is easy to see that without some counter force, the globe must rotate slower and slower, until its revolutions wholly cease. Then with perpetual night 011 one side, and a degree of cold far below any now known, we should have on the other a "fervent heat" from the sun, which would melt the rocks and make the mountains run like water. Rut we need feel no alarm, lie shows a counter poise which nearly balances this resistance, and will maintain, substantially, the present mun dane condition, through ages upon ages yet to come.

DEATH IN A HAUL ROOM—A Horrible place to Die in. —On New Year's eve, Miss Kate Hofmeister, a daughter of a widow lady residing in BoonviHe, Mo., died sud denly at a party given by the Turner's Society, at the Thespian Hall, at that place. About 11 o'clock at night, and while on the floor waltzing, she suddenly threw up her hands and fell, but was caught before striking the floor. At first it was thought, amid the confusion that ensued, that she had only fainted. Res toratives were at once applied, but befort slie could be taken home she was discov ered to be dead.
