posts have been stationed along the walk
leading in that direction, on which oil

necessary now is to light them. Hereafter
when people are awkward enough to fall

The committeeeonsidered the question of

heretofore established, allowed them to
take part in the business of the committee
so far us representing the feeling of their
districts on any question, but they were not
allowed to vote. The following named
gentlemen wero present as proxies: J. N

burg ; Mr. Thos. Jamison, for L. M. Rishel'
of Gregg ; A. T. Leathers, for J. S. Fred

James A. McClain,of Boggs, offered the
following resolution, which was unani
mously adopted: "Ketolvrd, That tho
Chairman of the County Committee be
authorized, in the event of the ordering of
a now election of a Congressman in the
20th district; to call together the County
Committee of September, 1870, for the
purpose of placing in nomination a candi
date for Congress and of choosing Con
gressional conferees to meet similar con
ferees from the other counties composing
the said district." fl was the general
opinion among the Committee that the
President of the last Convention had the
power of re-convening that body, but to
remove ull shadow of doubt, the Commit
tee authorized the Chairman, J. L. Spang
ler, to unite with the President of the Sep
tember convention in the call. The meet
ing was large considering tbe very short
time given, many not receiving their
notices until the day before. Mr. J. N.
Cassanova addressed the meeting in a short
but pointed speech. The re-convening of
tho Convention becomes necessary only in
the event of Congress declaring a vacancy
in this (20th) district. The best of feeling
and entire harmony prevails among the
members of the Committee, and much
enthusiasm was manifested In tbe meeting
MECTIRO OR THE AORICUI-TURAL SO
CIETY.—The meeting of the Centre County
Agricultural Society in the Court House,
on Monday night, was small in numbers,
but sb<>rt, sharp and decisivo in the busi
ness transacted. Hon. 8. T. Bhugert was
elected temporary chairman. The Secre
tary and Treasurer, W. F Roeder, Esq.,
being called on, read his report, a summary
of which is given below. Messrs. Win.
Shortlidge, Andrew Gregg and John A.
Woodward were appointed an auditing
committee to report at the present meeting.
The report of the Treasurer was spoken of
as tho best in alt respects ever rendered
on any previous year. On motion, the
following committee on nominations was
appointed : Messrs. John Rishel, William
Shortlidge, Samuel Rrugger, J. A. Wood

The report of the committeo was unani
mously adopted. Mr. Dale gave notice
that tbe pfeaent occupant of the house at
the fair ground intends soon to vacate it
and that the new executive committee
must see that it is re-ronlcd. The same

DKATII or MKH. K. I. KIHK.—No event
which wo have been obliged to record ha*
been attended with more regret in the
performance of that <luty than in referring
to the death of Mr*. K. 1. Kirk at the res
ldence of her husband, I)r. Kirk, in thi*
place, on Monday morning la*t ut 7 o'clock.
On the previous Thursday morning Mr*.
Kirk was seized with sudden and severe
illness which increased as the hour* passed
by. From then until Sunday convulsion
succeeded convulsion. Hhe could not rec
ognize even her nearest friends and her
sufferings wuro intense. It was hoped that
tlie inherent strength and activity with
which she was largely endowed would en
able her to rally. The assistance of sev
eral physicians was invoked, and although
on Sunday she hud revived sufficiently to
be conscious that her friend* were near,
towards night she became worse, and death
ended her suffering on Monday morning.
Mrs. Kirk's maiden name was Miss Hen
rietta Barrett. Her father's family former
ly lived in Clearileld county, but are now
residents of Millerstown, I'a. She was an
active, energetic, cheerful Christum lady.
No wife was ever more loving and helpful
than she, and no mother more affectionate,
and the husband and two little boys who
have forever lost her presence in thi* life
are plunged in the deepest grief. In her
father's family, also, she was ever the
favorite, and her mother and one sister
hastening from their home in Millerstown,
were present to administer to her the last
loving offices f tender affection. By all
to whom she was known her deuth will be
greatly regretted, and it will be one more
tie to bind them to the ho|>e and contldent
expectation of a meeting in lieaven when
all shall have passed beyond the grave.

LlOtir FROM THE LITERARY CI.CB
Mr. Fred Reynolds and Mr. Harry Keller
were unanimously received into the Addi
sonian Club last Saturday night, and the
Club was much pleased to receive such ex
cellent accessions to its membership. The
meeting in tolo was decidedly the most
lively nnd interesting thus far in the his
tory of the Club. The.Junior debate was
rendered the more beneficial because of the
searching criticisms on it by Mr. Kill*
Orvis. The resolution that "the State
should encourage, foster and support high
er education in the public schools as well
as primary education" proved so interest
ing that the discussion of it exceeded the
limit" of the Club session, and it* decision
wa postponed until next Saturday night.
Mr. Klli* Orvis made one of hi* fluent
speeches in support of the resolution, but
Mr. Charles Scbroeder promises, at the
next session of the Club, to introduce such
eloquence and argument sgainst the reso
lution that the efforts in its favof'wiU be
entirely eclipsed. As all the members are
much interested in the question and prom
ise to have something to say upon it, it*
decision will be the result of much light
and learning, and will form a precedent
which will he invaluable even to the State
itself should it ever become engaged in a
struggle on this important question.
TIIK KKULR CLOCK.—WC have all read
so much about the Engle clock, that the
prospect that it will be on exhibition in
thi* place on the 12th*, 13th and 14th of
next month it decidedly pleasant. Judging
by the illuminated posters, tbo Engle
clock is quite a handsome affair, and its
attractiveness is further enhanced by the
fact that an intelligent lady—Mr*. Capt.
J. Heid—stands near it, ruler in hand, a In
school-mistress, explaining the mechanical
and astronomical mysteries of the wonder
If our memory serves us correctly, this
clock was Invented after years of patient
toil, by an bumble miner living in Har.le

nuity it excels the famous Strasburg clock

A NEW PAPER.—Milmburg now issues
a weekly journal of her own. It is called
the Herald, and is edited by Mr. James
McMullcn. It is a four-page sheet, about
half thesixeof the DEMOCRAT, and shows
great care, wit and ability in its editorial
department. It endorse* the views of the
three political parties, and is full of real
and imaginary local new*. Among the
former we notice in it* last issue that a
Mr. Fletcher, of that place, who some
lime ago injured his hand, ha* entirely re
covered and is again able to use it. The
price of the Herald is such a* to win the
editor of the paper a fortune if he secure*
about a thousand subecriber*. It is $24
Y. M. C. A. NEXT SURD AT.— An effort
will be put forlh to make the usual month
ly meeting in the room of the Young
Men's Christian Association, on Sunday
afternoon next, one of the most interesting
yet held. The colored quartette from the
African M. K. church, who have pure,
rick, well-cultivated voices, have promised
that they will he present and render seve
ral selections. Besides this attraction, a
largo portion of the male musical talent of
our town wilt be present to make the con
gregational singing better than usual.
The audiences which gather on these occa
sions are always large, and It Is expected
that at next Sunday's meeting the room
will be full to overflowing. All are In
OOLUTB VH. DAVlD— Bishop Waymari,
of Baltimore, In bin lecture, in the Court
Hou<e, on Tuesday night, in reply to Rob
ert (J. liigersoM's production on "Hell,"
represented himself an David and Inger
i 01l an Goliath. The Bishop in a stout,
pleasant looking colored rnininter, with
nonoroun voice and nlow, dignified manner,
i In thin instance ho neleetod a pebble from
the brook and threw it with all his force
against bin adversary. The Kinhop's au
dience, judging by their attention and the
applause with which they greeted the close
of the lecture, considered the pebble of the
proper kind and well projected. But it
remains to ho seen whether it hit the
Giant's forehead, and, if Ingersoll, like his
historical Philistine predecessor, fell to
rise no more. Whether the Bishop's de
liverance was a just criticinrn or not we
shall not pretend to nay, but the doctrine*
he advocates are certainly those which are
destined to bring peace and happiness to
the world, arid none need apprehend but
that of their own strength they will pre
vail, even though no "little David" arise*
to slay all that oppose them.
An enlivening part of the lecture was
when the Bishop related an incident about
a colored man in Utah who assayed to at"
tempt the polygamous custom of the "Lat
ter Day Saints." He related it, be mid,
f>r the benefit of the ladies who were so
politely bowing to hirn. The aforesaid
ladies would, perhaps, have bowed still
more bad it not been that a hungry looking
Court House mouse was constantly running
across the floor near their feet. Bui*the
"hredren and sisters" manifested as much
wakefulness as could have been expected,
considering the lecture was about Ingersoll,
to many of whom he is not a very interest
TURKEY AND OYHTKKM. —The former
for dinner and the latter for aupper, with a
few side dishes thrown in, was what the
ladies of the Lutheran church gave to re
gale those who visited the basement of
their church on Tuesday last between the
hours of 12 and ft and 6 and 10 r. M.
Hither cost fifty cent* apiece, and there
were numerous extras which took all the
small change one might have with bim.
But then ail of these were peculiarly excel
lent of their kind. Pretty girls in confus
ing and entrancing numbers waited on the
table, and were a rare f<-a*t for a cultivated
ere and didn't cost a cent—that is, to the
one who merely looked at them, though
each one was worth her weight in gold.
The "rush " to both dinner and *up|ier, not
withstanding the wretched weather, was
satisfactorily large and the proceed* were
doubtless considerable. By using the ice
cream, cake and other delicious viand* that
remained, the ladies were enabled to give
a free treat to the children of the .Sunday
school on the following day. We hope
everybody enjoyed themselves and that the
coffer# of the church were largely replen
