WASHINGTON, I). C., Dec. 2'J, 1879.
There has been a very large gather
ing here of prominent Republicans,
members of the National Committee
and others, intent upon securing some
ad vantage for their respective favorifes
in the Presidential race. The only
candidates talked of were Grant, Blaine
and Sherman, and in the order above
named. Don Cameron was interviewed
before the assembling of the commit
tee, and expressed his confidence that
he would surely be elected chairman,
which he was by two majority. At the
same time he stated that neither of
the candidates would receive any ad
vantage over the others by reason of
his election. There are all sorts at
opinions expressed concerning the spe
cial significance of his election—many
being outspoken in the belief that he
will exert his influence as chairman in
favor of Grant, whilst others say that
he will work quietly but efficiently for
his father in-law, Secretary Sherman.
Don is well known here us a bold, un
scrupulous politician of the worst and
most dangerous machine type, and his
election means a vigorous campaign
with heavy political assessments ujajn 1
the federal office holders, supplemented
by plenty of aid from the great cor
porations of the country. Of one thing
rest assured, should he be designated ,
hereafter as chairman of the National
Republican Convention he will do every
thing that can be done, not only to
elect the Republican electoral ticket
in Pennsylvania, but also to increase
his political favor in that State. Hale,
who was chairman of the Republican
Congressional committee in the 1878
campaign, used more than one-tenth of
the committee corruption fund in
Maine. Cameron would not scruple to
use his place to scatter the mqpey of
the Committee in Pennsylvania. There
is some alarm manifeeted least the Re
publicans should make use of their
strength in the Legislatures controlled
by tbem in the so-called doubtful
States, to elect their electoral tickets,
and relying U|K>n their strength in the
stalwart States to endorse any course
they may pursue to thus take the elec
tion out of the hands of the people.
It has been ascertained that this was
the programme agreed upon here be
fore the Ohio election, and as evidence
of this it is shown that they made her
culean efforts with lavish use of money
to carry ftolh branches of the Legisla
ture. The more timid and conservative,
or so-called "liberal" Republicans, are
loud in their denunciation of this pro
gramme, but the men in office and
those who control the machine say that
it ia necessary to perform this new out
rage against the ballot in order t
"save the oountry." .Several leading
Republican newspapers in New York
City are out in article* opposing the
scheme. The National Itemocratio
Committee will meet on the 23d of Feb
ruary to name the day and place of
holding the next Democratic National
Convention. Pending this meeting
■peculation is rife as to who will be the
candidate of the party for President.
The only persons now prominently
mentioned are Seymour, Hancock and
Hayard. Judging from the opinions
one hears expressed by nearly every
earnest Democrat the convention will
select the candidate who may be con
sidered the strongest. Until quite re
cently the name of Seymour waa upon
every man's lips, but the boom which
seemed to promise unanimity and en
thusiasm has disappeared under the
microscopic eyea of searching politi
cians. f was handed yesterday a printed
slip containing tlic figures of the New
York election of 18i>8 when Tweed WHS
chairmen of the City committee of
N. Y., add Samuel J. Tilden was
chairman of the Now York State Com
mittee. The figures are taken from tho
ew York H'wU almanac of 1868 and
ai briefly Hummed up as follows • Sey
mour's majority (highest Democratic
elector), 9,068; Hoffman's majority
(Domocratic candidato for Governor),
27,946; Hoffman over Seymour, 17,078;
Hoffman's majority over Seymour in
Now York City, 4,206. Hoffman ran
ahead of Seymour in every county of
the State of New York except Essex,
Renaellmr, and Schoharie. The total
of the majority of the Democratic
candidates for Congress was 11,270, ho
ing 1301 greater than Seymour's majori
ty (highest elector) over Grant. The
Southern men are more reticent than
usual in pronouncing their opinions.
The Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas
delegations favor the nomination of
Hancock ; Alabama is divided between
Hancock and "the great unknown ;"
Florida appears (;uiescent; South Caro
lina is divided between Hancock and
Bayard; Virginia favors Hancock—that
is, the "regular organization" does,
whilst the "Mahone" Democrats have
not yet decided whether they will act
j in concert with the "debt-payers" or
i take an independent stand. Kentucky
j wax for Thurman, and is now hunting
I another candidate. Tennessee is said
| to favor Hendricks, but this is doubtful.
Arkansas is divided between Hancock
and Seymour. This is the present com
plexion of affairs seen from the point
of view of the dome of the Capitol.
The support given Bayard seems more
a personal support than the advocacy
of a candidate for his availability. <hi
the other hand Hancock is mentioned
both for his personal <|ualities and pre
sumed great strength as a candidate
who can be elected, and in that event
will certainly go into the White House
on the 4th of March ISsl. Sentiment
is fast centering on Hancock as the
most available man. In the light of the
recent elections in New York and Indi
diana. Democrats are admitting freely
that he can carry that Stale. The ac
tion of Governor Uarcelon in adhering
strictly to the Constitution of Maine in
the matter of giving certificates to the
member* of the Legislature of that
State who alone were elected under its
provisions, ha* produced a flutter here
in the Maine Republican delegation.
Many and various are the opinions ex"
pressed by different Representative#
from that State. Congressman Reed
(of Maine) aav* it will help the Repub
lican parly in their election next Sep
tember. Congressman I.add, (Green
hacker and Democrat), says, on the oth
er hand that Governor Garcelon'# firm
ness in administering the law under
the constitution of his Slate has given
renewed vitality to the Democratic
party, and that ha is respected every
where in the State foi his refusal to ac
cede to the demands of the Republican
stalwarts, with "the plumed Knight,"
Blaine at their head, who insisted upon
being permitted to change the returns
after they had been filed with the Sec
retary of the State. The Legislature
when assembled will undoubtedly in
vestigate the wholesale frauds, briberies
and corruption practiced by the Repub
licans in the late election and do justice
to all. Congress has adjourned for the
holidays and most of the Senators and
members have gone home. The finan
cial situation will undoubtedly bedebal.
Ed in both houses and no one can pre
dict the result. Neither party is united
upon any single line of action touching
tho financial question, the breach be
tween the Republicans who deire to
let the finances alone, and those who
think that the legal tender proj>erty
should be taken away from the green
back at once, being quite pronounced
and open.
In the measures recommended by
Hayes one essily recognises tho pro
gramme, boldly laid down in Grant's
message to Congress in 1872, viz : to re
tire greenbacks and increase the
bonded debt and taxation for that pur
pose. This is the end in view and the
re|>eal of the legal tender clause is hut
a step in the same direction. The
bonded debt has already been increased
over one hundred millions for resump
tion purposes, an increase which was
not at all necessary and which would
have failed to produce resumption, but
for the heavy crofm on this side of the
Atlantic, apd light ones in Kurope.

The Uronth of Wealth In Now York.
Fifty year* ago only one citizen in
New York city, John Jacob Aster, was
worth more than $1,000,000. Now it i
asserted that over five hundred men in
the metropolis whoso wealth is estimat
ed at $1,000,000 and over. Then New
Y'ork had little more than 200,000 peo
ple ; now, including adjacent towns
and the population within a radiou* of
fifty miles of Union Square, ft includes
not far from 2,000,000. And then, adds
the New York Times, "we had no ho
telsj newspapers, libraries, theaters
worthy of the name we had no oceen
crossing steamers, no" modern improve
ments, few foreign fashions, no regular
ly-recurring defalcations, little official
or legislative corruption, no stupendous
municipal debt, no reckless ambitions,
no "booming" Wall street, not many
luxuries, but an amazing amount of
public and private honesty."
Centre County Oranges.
At the recent meeting of the State
Grange of Pennsylvania, held at
Bloomshttrg, the following interesting
report was read by Leonard Rhone,
Esq., deputy for thu> county :
To the Wortlfy Master unit Patrons of the
Pennsylvania Slate Qramje of the Pat
rons oj Husbandry :
In accordance with the requirement*
of the act of the State Grange I have
the honor of herewith submitting my
annual report, as deputy for Centre
county. The total number of suliordi
nate Grange* in tlie county i* sixteen,
all of which, with the exception of one,
are in active operation, and meet regu
larly. Eleven of the*e have halls un
der their exclusive control, either liy
owning them or by lease. Four ure es
pecially comfortable and attractively
furnished with carpets, furniture, pic
| lures and paraphernalia necessary to
) make a Grange attractive. Five meet
j in public school-houses, tjuite a num
! her of librarie* have been Htarted, three
] of which have obtained a fine lot of
! books that would be a credit to older
'societies. Ten Granges have regularly
e*tahlished business agencies, each do
ing a business of from S3OO to $. r >,ooo a
year, keeping a small *tock of good* on
hand by order of the members; but
the bulk of the business is done on the
order system, or ordered as wanted.
.Sometimes two or more Granges con
solidate their orders, to make up car
loads, to get the advantage of lower
freights on such articles as coal, nalt
! and plaster, of wliicli fifteen car-loads
t were shipped direct to the < I ranges in
j our county. And these shipments will,
j no doubt, increase from year to yeat by
j a judicious management on the part of
, Patrons.
Guririg the punt year public meetings
, were held l>y all the subordinate
j Granges in the county, the exercises
I consisting of festivals, ruusic, and ad
; dresses upon rural and agricultural
j topics, as pertaining to the welfare of
' our people and government. There
has been a marked improvement in the
i character of these meetings as compar
ed with former occasions—in some in
' stances two churches leing offered in
; the snnre village.and the use of the
Vchurch organ being freely given ; the
choir cheerfully assisting in the sing
ing. I have never yet attended a pub
lic Grange meeting in uny locality that
we did not meet with a grand success,
I if the Grange in the locality, in a man
ly, straight-lorward wav, ask for a re
i spec table place to bol-i their meeting,
and put forth a proper effort to make
iit known among the j>eople, and be
| forehand prepare good singing, accom
panied with instrumental music.
The county Pomona Grange has been
• equally successful. The four quarterly
meetings were well attended, new
members were added at each meeting,
i agricultural topics, co-operation and
! social science as pertaining to the wel
| fre of the agiiculturul class were ably
discussed. < ur place of meeting baa
! been beautifully remodeled to corres
i pond with the design and imagery of
! our Ritual and unwritten work, liav-
I trig purchased new and elegant para- ]
phermtlia and fixtures, the degree*
were conferred in all their splendor, !
giving them an entirely favorable and
lasting impression. These degree meet
, ings in our county Grange have proved
themselves the most interesting of all,
tusking them a real reunion and social
entertainment, and hy their unreserved
social intercourse, giving the members
of the Order an opportunity to make
many pleasant and lasting acquaint
ances that could scarcely be brought
about in any other way. In our earn- |
est and laudable desire to better our
' financial condition through the instru
' mentality of the Grange, let us not for
get that our fraternal and social feel
, ings need culture and refinement as
well as the head and the hands. With
the neglect of these will come the
| downfall of our degrees and Hitual, and i
with them the wreck of our much es
teemed trdcr: which would Ire the
death-blow to the hope of the Ameri
can farmer.
It is the custom of Patrons, under
the auspices of the County Grange, tn
hold ar. annual public reunion of all
the subordinate Giange* in the county.
These meetings are attended by the
thousands. The sixth annual gather
ing. held on the 25th of September,
compared favorably with any of our
former gatherings, and was in many
respects pleasaiiter and more sociai.
These large annual county picnics give
public character to our Order, and cre
ate confidence in the public mind as to
the stability and permanency of the Pat
rons of Husbandry.
The Patron*' Fire Insurance Compa
ny of our county ha* grown steadily,
I adding over $25(1,000 to the company,
without any losses during the year. It
has property insured in *even counties
surrounding Centre. The company
foot* up nearly, perhaps altogether,
j $1,000,000 j which speaks, we think,
! very creditably for the management of
the company, which ha* been in opera
tion only a few year* and in the most
depre>ed timea known. It being an
exclusively Patrons' company it* growth
has been confined to the limits of the
Order, we preferring to keep it for the
benefit of those who may unite them
selves with the Orange, aa being a
, mean* for strengthening and upbuild-
I ing the Order among the people of the
rural districts. We. as Patron*, are
often too generous with the privileges
and advantage* given by our Order, by
bestowing these privilege* upon those
who are lighting us secretly; thereby
weakening the bulwarks and strong
holds of the Orange.
The Patrons' Live Stock Association
of the County Grange, which has been
in operation a little over eighteen
months, has marketed a little over four
teen hundred bead of hor*M, cattle,
sheep and swine for the farmers of our
county. This ha* been altogether a
new and untried experiment by far
mer* ; but it promise* to be of a lasting
benefit to our people when once fully
developed anrt established. It ha*
grown out of the necessities of the
timea and the uqjust discriminations
against Patrons who look an active part
in the Grange. Loeal dealers, in the
madnea* of their folly, boasted that
they would aoon crush out the Grange
by passing those who would take an
active part in the Grange, and by tear
ing their stock on their hands. This
wan practiced for several year* upon
active I'atrona till, out of heer necew
sity, the I'atrona' Live Stock Annota
tion sprung into existence, and haa
maintained itself and flouriahed amidat
the greatcat opposition and misrepre
aentation. 1 admit that we were a lit
tle disappointed at the slowness of the
introduction of a direct trade with the
Grunge* in the dairy districts, and we
are aorry that a miaapprehonaion haa
sprung up in the East aa to the charac
ter and purpose* of our association—
namely, that it waa established for spec
ulative pui|K>*es. Allow me to say that
it is in no sense a speculative enter
prise, but an absolute necessity to pro
tect the i'utrons in our county, if the
Order is to be maintained. There is
j not a single stock dealer connected
with our Association in any way, the
j capital stock being subscribed by actual
j Patrons and farmers in shares of five
J dollurs each. There are, perhaps,
: twelve or fifteen persona that hold from
two to four shares in the Association ;
| the balance of the capital stock is sub
[ scribed und paid by single shares. We
| thank you, Patrons in the East, for the
I patronage received, and for the kind
ness shown to our Bpeciul agent, lfro.
George Gale, whom we sent among you
to open the way by a rnutuul under
standing for a direct trade. We still
| feel confident that we shall receive
| more encouragement in the near future
by actual trade with the Granges in the
dairy districts, e*|>ecialiy if we can fur
i nisli you with as good a grade of cattle,
and at aa reasonable prices as you can
• get them from outside dealers ; and I
| leel satisfied that we could furnish you
■ with any kind of stock wanted, either
I in mixed lots or all of one kind, even
at lower price*. We want to deal
j on the "square," and it can he brought
; about by a mutual co-operation.
It frequently create* a smile by our
Eastern tarmers, near our great cities,
when we, in the centre of the State,
-|M'nk of our large (arms, devoted to the
! cultivation of the great staples of
wheat, corn and oats, *nd the raising
of cattle and marketing the same. So
|it does with us in the central part of
: the State when your Kastern farmers
| talk of small farms, devoted to the cul
I livation of vegetables, em ill fruits,
| dairying and marketing, yet this only
| shows the great diversity of the agri
. cultural resources of our State. Your
' system of' larming is no doubt best
| suited to your part of the State, and so
is ours to our locality. To exchange
' our systems would be neither wise nor
j economical. This only goes to prove
! that either system i equally great and
j important. The diversity only makes
farming more profitable and useful,
providing we can get those products to
the consumers without too much cost
to the producer, so as to leave him a
'• sufficient margin of profits for his labor.
! Fellow Patrons, can we tolerate in the
i Grange the wants of so great a diversi
ity in the agricultural pursuits of our
| .Slate and nation? This is what the
i Grange tries, as I understand it, by its
| system of co-operation, to bring about.
The unparalelled success of the <>r
j der in the county has engendered pr'j
■ udice, which baa culminated into hatred
i among those who had speculative trade
; and the management of public affairs
in their own way before the establishing
of the Order among our people. By
the combination of these traders and
lobbyists the mercantile appraisers as
' sessed three of the subordinate Granges
with mercantile license, under Glass 13,
for being engaged in ordering supplies
fo* the members. The subordinate be
| ing determined not to Im henten in de
tail "|>ooled their issue" under the Po
| inona Grange, and took out an appeal
1 to the court, employed an attorney, had
j the case argued, hut for the want of
sufficient evidence on the part of the
, appraisers the case was postponed.
I Wlien it came up a second tune in
court the mercantile appraiser asked
that the case be indefinitely J>otpnned.
.The Auditor General has declined to
' interfere or instruct the county treasu
| rer to enforce the collection, so the
case ia still pending in court and will
no doubt be left there to slumber in
silence. Had it not been for the County
Grange calling a special committee of
one from each sutiordinate Grange to
advise what course to pursue, no doubt
the Grange* assessed would have sub
mitted rather than to incur the ex
|>ensea singly to contest the case in
court, which would have been followed
by an assessment of all tue Granges in
' the county.
It perhaps is not out of place to state
here that under the statute of Penn'a,
any Grange or persons can do any kind
, of mercantile fuisincsrf to any amount
under SI,OOO without license; and in
the opinion of our attorney the order
ing system aa pursued by the subordin
ate Grange, is not liable nf licence, no
matter aa to the amount of business.
The educational interest* of the Order
are much discussed in the county. The
, short course of lectures on agriculture,
proposed by the State College, was dis
| cussed at the last meeting of the Pomo
na Grange, and was unanimously en
dorsed and recommended to the farm
ers and citizens of our State ; especially
those that have not the time or means
to pursue a full course of instruction in
the College, a strong effort will be made
to secure a liberal patronage in thia the
first endeavor by the College in the
right direction to help those who can
not get a more liberal education. Far
mers are often unjust to their children
by giving those who want to study the
profession* a lil>era! and collegiate ed
ucation, while those who intend to
study farming must be content with
the education received at our public
schools. This appears to me like an
unjust discrimination that drive* many
of our best young men and women from
our farms. It ia the duty of our Order
to educate public sentiment above such
gross injustice. We should take advan
of this offer of our worthy brother, the
president of the College. All the pro
fessions have their schools; why should
not the farmer patronise and sustain
hi* own ? Many of the faulta of ine
quality to our class lie at our own door.
There are many point* that I should
like to have touched on, but my report
ia already too long. You will excuse
the many abrupt sentences of mere nak
ed facts without so much aa clothing
them with a single embellishment
Taking in the whole field of our dis
trict, I think the Grange stronger and
more active than at my last report WO
have added *oaie new member*, hut not
*o many young people a* I wouhj deaire.
The ai*ter* of our Order could bring
about tbi* much deaired change of en
livening our Orange* with the refining
influence* of the youth of our country.
If the ni*ter* would go actively to work,
there i* not a Orange in the Htate but
would add a dozen or more to their
rank* of thin much needed material to
give life and vigor to our meeting*, and
a joyou* *un*hine to all who might come
under their plea*ant influence*.

A Ploasant SurpriHO,
MR. EDITOR, —The injunction is, "Ren
der therefore to all their due*," —"Honor
to whom honor i* due." It i* meet, there
fore, that the people of Buffalo Run Pres
byterian church and vicinity should have
this honorable public mention, that on
December I'Jth they gave their minister
and hi* family a very pleasant surprise.
On the afternoon of Friday there arrived
at the Milcsburg parsonage four gentlemen
and their spring wagons—the wagons
' tilled with nearly all the necessaries of
life. After pleasant congratulations the
gentlemen carried the content* of their
wagons into the kitchen, the cellar, the
► table, Ac. It was surprising to we the
quantity of good things they had gathered
up—flour, buckwheat, corn, potatoes, ap
-1 plea, beef, hums, butter, lard, sausages,
| dried fruits, apple-butter, jams, turkeys,

agreeable conversation. All these things
