the decease of David (iilliland, Esq., ol

telligence—kind and pleasant in disposi
tion, nnd always highly respected in the
community in which the most of his days
were spent, lie was for many .years
consistent and exemplary member of the
Presbyterian church and wa* prepared for
tho summons of the solemn messenger.
His death was caused by Bright* disease
of the kidneys, from which lie had suffered
for nine months. He was interred in the
Presbyterian burial ground at Centre Hill

relatives, friends and neighbor* paying the
last tribute of re*pect to hi* memory. Hi*
age wa* 71 years, 7 months and 21 days.
A COMET COMIXO !—Prof. Swift, As
tronomer of the Warren Observatory, at

evening of October 10th. The new celes
tial visitor is in tho Constellation of Pega
sus, right ascension, 21 hours and 30 min
ute*, declination north 17 degrees and 30
minutes. Its rate of motion is quite slow,
being in a north western direction, and it is
supposed to he approaching the sun. It
has a very strong condensation on one side
of the centre, in addition to a star-like nu
cleus, which indicates that it is throwing
off an extended tail. From the fact of its
extraordinary sir.e, and also that it is com
ing almost directly toward the earth, givca
good reason to suppose that this will he
ono of the most brilliant and remarkable
comets of the present century. Wait and
wntch for it.

CSUKR THE SitSTtlTOE.—The Brock
orhofT House is fast becoming the Mecca
of those foolish people who want to commit
matrimony. Gretna Green, of storied
fame, received into its hospitable arms all
the love-lorn swains and damsels who were
unable to make things right with the old
people. But the Brockerholf House is no
Gretna Green. It is not the asylum of
fugitives, but the royal castle of properly
announced guests. When Mr. Wm. Klise,
of Lock iluven, thought that ecstatic bliss
could only bo secured to him by placing
the chains that are*forged by love and
welded by the preacher upon Miss Allio
Bechtol, he promptly informed Mr. Teller
that he, with his retinue, would thunder at
the doors of his hotel on last Friday even
ing. He came, he—saw Kev. S. K. Furst,
the pastor of the Lutheran church, ami at
7 o'clock Mr. Klise and Miss Bechtol faced
the reverend gentleman while ho read the
impressive und beautiful marriage service
of his church. In less time than it con
sumes to tell our readers Mr. Klise found
that he was indissolubly linked to Miss
Bechtol. Miss Klise, Miss Lent arid Miss
Fisher acted in thecapacity of bridesmaids
and shed all the necessary tears as they saw
their friends wafted into thul beautiful
country which is to young ladies as the
promised land. The bride was becomingly
dressed in white satin and tulU, with the
customary wreath of orange blossoms. The
groom wus slight in stature and was dress
ed in the ordinary garb of the American
gentleman. Mrs. W. 11. Teller and her
accomplished daughter, Miss Fox, with
Howard Lirigle and Mr. Teller, composed
the audience. K. T. Batchelor, J as. Grier
and M. Lingle took interest enough in
the alTuir to act as groomsmen. It was
quite a wedding, and was, no doubt, ex
ceedingly satisfactory to the principal
—The array of speakers fur the great
Democratic mass meeting on next Friday
should secure the attendance of every
Democrat in Centre county and should
command tho presence of every inde.
pendent voter. Senator Whyte, of Mary
land, is one of the nation's great men, and
ho is esteemed by all a* a pure and unas
sailabln man. His forensic abilities are of
the highest order and he justly ranks
among the foremost orators in the country.
Lewis C. Cassldy, of Philadelphia, needs
no mention to Pennsylvanians. He is
known a* among the great men of the
land and every Democrat in Centre
county will be proud to do him honor.
Hon. Win. A. Wallace, our own Senator,
is too well known to bis constituency in
Centre county to need words of laudation.
Hon. Samuel 11. Heynolds, of
broth< of our distinguished townsman,
W. F. Heynolds, it a great lawyer and
most eloquent speaker. His reputation Is
not local, but extends all over tbe state
and country. Genral A. L. Pearson it
widely known as the fearless friend of
Hancock, who renounced Hepublicnnistn
after the nominatiou of (iartleld, and is
now doing yeoman service for his old
comrade-in-arms. Colonel Dundas is a
wealthy manufacturer who employs hun
dreds of operatives, and he will give such
attention to the question of tariff as will
make our Hepublican friends regret that
they ever made it an issue. Joseph W.
Parker, of Lewistown, who is known to
our citizens as an eloquent orator, with
others, completes the list of speakers.
Democrats of Centre county, once more
into the breach. Show our foes on next
Friday what you can do when you arc on
your mettle. It is the boast of tbo Re
publicans that they can always get the
best of the Democrats in their large mass
meetings. Democrats, give the lie to this
boast on next Friday by coming to Bellc
fonte in such number* as to strike terror to
tho souls of tho followers of the man who
believes labor should be bought like bacon.
Last Friday afternoon, tho Hancock
Legion, of this place, went on a special
train to Williamsport to take part in the
torch-light procession in that city a.id pass
in review before (ten. George B. McClel
lan, who was present by special request.
It proved to be one of the largest gather
ings of the Legion witnessed since its orga
nisation. They formed in line on High
street, fully two hundred strong, and as
they marched up High street and counter
marched to the train, led by the Pleasant
Gap Hand, the spectacle was grand and
inspiring, and drew forth lavish commen
dation from the many citir.ens who had
assembled to witness their departure. In
addition to tho Legion there was a small
delegation from Unionville, about fifty
cilixens from this place, and at Milcsburg
they wero joined by a fair representation
of tho Milesburg en I Hoggs township
Legion, the number being Argely aug
mented by passengers who entered at
all the intermediate stations between
this place and I-ock Haven. Thoy ar
rived safely at their destination about
seven o'clock. Tbeprocession at Williams
port was an immense affair, as the Lumber
City well understands how to get up a
brilliant blase—the number in line being
variously from six thousand to
ten thousand —and the legion occupied its
usual prominent poaition in this grand
throng, and elicited the customary meed of
prair.e. The Legion and all who partici
pated in tho excursion report a splendid
time. They returned home about 3:30
o'clock Saturday morning.
