Perhaps tlic time is net within the recol

was mere ahundantly displayed in our
markets than en Saturday last and te-day.
Every market stall was filled te overflow
ing and the curbstones were occupied for a
long distance beyond the limits te which
they were sold by the market committee.
Green corn, peaches, apples, watermelons,
cantclepcs and terries were a drug en the
market, and although the sales were rea
sonably large at the close of the market
the sellers had great quantities en hand
that they could net dispesn of at any price.
Vc heard of one countryman who traded
four dozen ears of sweet corn for one dozen
pretzels, and wagon leads of peaches were
disposed of at prices as low as five cents a
half peek, though very fine ones brought
from 20 te "0 cents. The corn crop is ex
ceptionally fine, and premises te be the
largest ever grown in the county. One
farmer told us that from : single acre he
expected te take 180 bushels of corn, of the
prolific variety, each stock contain

The hucksters complain that they

The Ilarrijburg Tdfripi limn waspass

cut of the Heading raihnad at the Catholic
cemetery, in Harrisburg whine he met a
wayfaiing man and a mendicant seated at,
one end of the bridge nursing his sere feet
and airing his stockings while he jested
his weary body against the rough timber
of the struct inc. The gmy hair fell strag
gling ever a face uiarl.ed by deep lines, and
browned by expasuic te the pelting of
storms and the heat of the sun. lluthe was
a pleasant old man te talk te, and answered
courteously te questions as te who he was
and whither he was going. "I am from
Lancaster," .said he, "and vftirk occa

but I would ratherstane en the lead than

the ancient tramp answered by putting
another te the repeiter: ''Ain't you a

pu ler. " Why de you ask .'" " Because
you leek like that family." The lepeitcr
then answered the question affirmatively,
when the tramp told his name, and "there

Last night the wigwam of the Sixth

J te the cause of DcGelyer Garfield and
Custom neuse Arthur. The wigwam is a
rotten, dirty, leaky old tent, te all ap
pearance formerly used as a side-show tent

Candidate-fer-Judgc Wm. A. Atlee, esq.,
president of the Sixth ward club, called

Weaver, esq., who delivered the same
speech that he has heretofore delivered
two or three times during the campaign,
merely emitting Judge Hlack's endorse
ment of Garfield, and, instead, placing us
under obligations for a flattering notice of
the I.ti:i.:.iei:nci:i:, which he said he read
"every evening"' and intimated that all ether
geed Republicans should de the same, if
they wished te keep themselves abreast the
elilical news of the day, as the Heg Ring
and Hull Ring organs have become se ter
ribly mixed that it is impossible te tell
"Mether from which." Mr. Weaver's
mind is a little clouded as yet, as te
whether Tem Davis or Adam Eberly is the
Simen pure Republican candidate for dis
1 1 iet. attorney, this j ear, but he is certain
thatW. D. Weaver should be the candi
date iu 1883.
Mr. Weaver closed his oration, and the
Eden baud which had been hired for the
occasion struck up the favorite air,
In Isvt: ler halls, for balls
In 18;, ter balls!
In Iss.:, Hill Wcavoreur candidate shall lie.
Anil we'll all drink stone blind,

Ex-Candidate Wm. A. Wilsen, esq.,
was the next speaker. He looked sad and
remarked that doubtful things arc very
'uncertain. (Applause.) He would net for
the world say anything te discourage Mr.
Weaver, but experience had proved that
the battle is net always with the strong.
(Applause.) He had himself teen a candi
date for district attorney and had
been squelched. (Cries of geed,
gesnl !) lie thought he would never
be a candidate again (Yells of
approbation.) Garfield is a geed
candidate, Judge Poland's committee te
the contrary notwithstanding. Arthur
is a geed candidate, though R. 1$. Hayes
and Jehn Sherman turned him out of
otfiee en the ground of dishonesty. Tem
Davis is a geed candidate and deserves
the support of every true Republican who

The great feature of tlic Wigwam
was the speech of Candidatc-fer-Anylhing
Jake Amwakc. He ascended the stand
and after spit ling tobacco juice all ever it,
he commenced a harangue in Pennsylvania
Dutch. Jake's dialect, like his politics, is
a little difficult te comprehend, no was
under.stoed te say that he had i roved all
tilings and held fast te nothing. He had
been a Democrat, and finding they would
net give him an office, he did all he could
te disorganize the party by remaining iu
it. When he was finally kicked out he
joined the Enow-Nothings and for a time
shone iu that dark-lantern organization
"like a i often mackerel by moonlight."
When that paity wenttothedemnitienbow
wows he for a lime connected himself with
the Prohibitionists, but their principles,
like their beverages, weie tee thin te suit
his masculine brain and bowels. He was
determined net te make a Docter Tanner of
himself, and se he joined Hie local whisky
ring, a mere mbiiutureef the ring of which
the great General Grant was the head and
MaeDeuald the tail. He was se delighted
with the change of diet that he has stuck
te it ever since. Grant is the true type of
Republicanism. lie takes all he can get
and asks for mere. He don't bother
himself about principle when interest is at
slake. This thing of stickling about tariffs
and finances and civil service reform is all
humbug. I have tried them all been en
all sides of eveiy question walked all
aieuiid them and viewed them from every
standpoint, and I declare en the honor of
an original Greenback man there's nothing
in 'em. "IJe all things te all men," as
one of the blessed apostles said. "Be
everything by turns and nothing long."
Mutation is the law of nature, and we
mu.st continue te mutate irwe deu't want
te be left behind. Then let us give three
cheers for the tarifl and the Cebdcn club.
Three cheers for the national banks, green
backs and the specie currency, three cheers
for prohibition and the whisky ring and
three reusing ones for Hancock and Gar
field. (Thunders of applause, during
which Jake wiped the tobacco juice from
his chin and sat down exhausted).
The band played "Over the fence is
out," and the meeting adjourned. It was
a famous victory.

Ill Chaige of u Lein caster Contractor mid a
Iu the current number of Harper's
Weekly there is a series of illustrations of
the new drainage works of Bosten, which
are being constructed by Richard A. 31a 31a
lene, contractor, of this city, and are in
charge of D. M. Staufl'er, engineer, also of
Lancaster. The pictures give the profile
of the tunnel under Dorchester bay, a view
of the work iu the tunnel, the cage at the
filth heist, the main entrance te the tun
nel at the tilth heist, the shaft in the bay,
the descent of the shaft, an excavation
shed and a view of Moen Island, where the
reservoir will be located. Iu further ex
planation of the work there is an extended
acjeuut of it in the same publication.
The trouble iu Bosten has been that the
tide ran up the present sewers, blocking
the exit of the filth, the sewage filled up
the harbor and it was carried by the in
waul tide upon the sherelands te the detri
ment of the general health. The new sys
tem of draining off the filth comprises a
system of low interception sewers along
the margins of the city te receive the flew
from the already existing sewers ; a main
sewer into which the former empty, and
which, crossing the city, leads te a pump
ing station at the sea coast ; pumping ma
chinery te raise the sewage about thirty
five feet ; an outfall sewer, partly in tunnel,
leading from the pumping station te a res
ervoir at Moen Island, in the harbor, from
which reservoir the sewage accumulated
during the latter part of ebb and the whole
of Heed tide is te be let out into the har
bor during the first two hours of the ebb
Seme of the branch sewers, built in a
cempicssible mud soil, need a pile feunda
tieu te support them. Sometimes they are
built by tunneling. The main sewer ends at
what is called the filth heist, a massive
undorgeund structure with several cham
bers, in which are hung cages or screens,
through which the sewage Hews, and
which intercept matters which would be
apt te clog the pumps. Thence the sow sew
age enters the pump wells, and is te be
raised by four large pumping engines
each capable of lifting twenty-five mil
lion gallons in twenty-four hours.
After being raised by the pumps the
sew.ige dews, with a sluggish currrcnt,
through an elevated tank or deposit sewer,
twelve hundred feet long, in which any
sand or ether heavy matters iu suspension
will deposit, and thence passes under Der
chester bay through a tunnel about a mile
and a-lialf long, and oue hundred and
fifty feet below the surface of the water.
Short siphons, as that under the Scine at
Paris, and ethers, have heretofore teen
constructed iu connection with the sew
erage works, but a tunnel of such mag
nitude as tlic oue new building at Bosten
for conveying sewage is a novel and bold
engineering conception. It is built by
means of three shafts in the bay, the up
per portions of which are formed of sec
tions of cast iron cylinders belted together.
Fer its entire length the tunnel is expect
ed te pass through solid rock, principally
Roxbury conglomerate and argillaceous
slate. The tunnel rises te the surface of
thcgieund at its farthest end, en a nar
row premonitory called Squautum Neck,
and thence the sewer is carried en a heavy
embankment across beaches and flats te
the reservoir at Moen Island.
The reservoir is te cover five acres, and
will be emptied just after each period of
high tide, at which time the currents set
ting seaward from the island will carry the
sewage well outside of the harbor. What
will be its ultimate destiny is a matter of j
surmise, but it has been stated by scientists j
that all organic particles will probably be;
oxidized bv the water, or will be assimila- i
ted by the myriad animal organisms which
pervade the sea.
In all some fourteen miles of intercept
ing sewers, besides the ether works, arc le
be constructed. Eight miles of these arc
new finished, or nearly se, and it is hoped
that within three weeks the whole works
will be completed. The total cost is esti
mated at $-1,000,000, and if the results con
fidently expected are attained, it will prove
a wise expenditure of time, labor and
