Towanda, Wednesday, hue IS, .1815.
.11. 'New Volume.
• Agreeably to the premise made some inontita since.,
we present our paper today, in en enlarged and impro
ved form. We' have felt this improvement due alike to
the generous patronage aecorded to us. and to the rising
interests and growing impyrtanee of our county.
Bradford County must sooner or truer, occupy a ..?ro.
tninent and infleential position in the state, in various
pointi of view. The largo territory within her borders
is well adapted to almost every variety of agr:cultural
production. Along the river, and on the larger streams
there is mach fine bottom and table land suited to every
species of grain; while the eastern and western town
ships will rival any part of the continent in their capa
bilities for grazing and raising aback. Besides there, we
have fine timber lands, and immense resources in coal
and iron. It will be'our first ambition to aid in develop.
ing and bringing into notice all these resources and in
terests. Without yielding any thing in our party at
tachments—we hold th 9 to be a paramount duty.
With this laudable view, as Well as to meet with great
er efficiency the claims of in intelligent community in
regard to to the literary character of our paper, we have
solicited and obtained the promise of frequent occasional
aid in our editorial labors, by a gentleman of experience
an intelligence, whose intimate knowledge of the resour
ces and capabilities of our country, and extensive and
varied research combined with collected statistical and
genets! information, will prove a valuable auxiliary to
our editorial columns. It is but fair, perhaps, to add
here, that no modification whatever, of the political charac-
Icier of the paper will result from this arrangement ;
nor will ;the gentleman referred to, in writing for our
columns, take even the slightest interest in any positinn
the paper ruiy assume in local politics. We deem a
frank and pceitive explanation upon this point; better at
the outset, thin haXarding what rumor or prejudice' might
utter upon ihe subject hereafter in case of our silence.,
The ineaalsize of our paper. with our determination
to exclude the repetition of stale advertiaements—will
enable us to present our patrons with as much reading
matter weekly, as can be found in any other country pa
per in the state. Under these circumstances, with a fair
determination, to deserve it—we venture to look for an
extended circulation and increased support from the in
telligent community•for whom we labor. The new law,
enabling us to sendour paper postage free, to almosteve
ry Post Office in the county will go into effect on the
first of July, will add to the inducements—obiglib/ft,
we had nearly said—which our citizens are under to sus
tain their local presses, rather than aid in 'building up
distant establishments and adding to the wealth and pow
er of places in which they have no interest ! We mean
to exhibit no unfair degree of selfishness on this subjeCt,
nor express any illiberal feeling towards our cotempora.
ries of the press abroad. Our rule is as applicable to their
interests as our own: it is—let eier r y community sustain
its own local presses, if they deserve it.
The present age has witnessed unparalleled strides in
the great march of human improvement. The plodding
millicms have scarcely ceased to wonder at one startling
discovery in the arts, or a new phasis in philosophy,
when admiration is claimed again in behalf of some fresh
adventurer in the worn and weary - paths of science.—
But moat of thi4 improvement, is cif a practical character
—especially so fir as our country is concerned.
It is curious to see with what instinctive tact, Arneri-
can genius seizes on every discovery„and converts it to
practical uses of life. Our Franklin' drew from a new
theory of electricity, the practical power of leading cap
tive the lightning of }leaven ; and Fulton filled our na
vigable streams with boats mocking at the winds and
tides, oiler his English cotemporary had demonstrated in
another form, the terrible power of steam.
So in every species of huolin enterprize—this practi
cal spirit has distinguished the American character. From
the arctic to the antarctic circles—in Baflin's bay, amid
the forests of Oregon, at the isthmus of Darien, or on the
sultry sands of Africa—wherever a new country is tia be
explored, or a new path of gain opened, or to be opened,
we are there, with our enterprize, our capital and indo
As Americans, we witness all this with pride, although
we cannot wholly repress the fear that this unenveening
devotion to the practical, is unfriendly to our progress in
the higher walks of intellectual culture. But in the din
of all these triumphs and improvements in the physical
world, we must not forget other more important conside
rations—duties, we had almost said—which belong to us
as a people upon whom Freedom and Humanity have
fixed their highest hopes.
The administration of justice, is beyond all compari
son, the most important part in the government and po
lity of a country. An enlightened jurisprudence suppo
ses a great elevation in national character. It is in this
respect, that we fear we have not advanced as fast, nor as
far, as the glorious outset seemed to promise. Our people
do not realness they ought, how inconsistent it is in a
land of freedom, to cling as we have done, in many *of
OUT legal enactments, to old usages and laws of despotic
countries—chaining, as it were, the spirit of liberty, with
Otters, forged in the darkest days of oppression and wrong.
We know that we approach a subject which is of deep
and vital interest—involving the preservation of social
traniuility, security and order, and the moral discipline
of the human family. We are tremblingly alive too, to
convictions of our inadequacy properly to:pursue this great
aubject---the discussion of which, embraces the entire
range of man's actions, his physical and moral constitu
tion, habits, feelings, propensities—destiny. But having
given it much careful consideration and souse Study, and
nerved by an honest purpose of fuldQing fearlessly one
of the high'duties.of a free press in its bearing upon pub.
lic opinion—we shall, from time to time, and as occasion
may serve, present out views,—crude though they may
be, in regard to certain Measure! , of reform, which we
belie%a, highly necessary, both in our civil and criminal
- those of our Democratic frieruls who may differ with
US on this subject or upon any other of general interest,
our columns shall always be open for any temperate and
candid strictures, whether in reply or otherwise.
Nay YORK &EIIII RAIL Roso.—The books for
subsaiptioa to the stock of the N. Y. & Erie Railroad
were opened . at New York, on the :9th ult., and the Et.

ADTZETDIEXidriaI-.By reference to Our ad
vertising columns, it will be seen that Neon. Watts
tiversat,st, have been replenishing their stock of gores,
by flesh arrivals. It is acid they have a fine stock allow:

The payment of the. interest Mite state debt which'

A failure at this time, would prostrate the credit oT Penn.
lyylliania almost beyond the hope of:revival; end a
, sense of degradation would again' chili the hearts of all
those 'within her bordersi.'who hive any regard for the
plighted faith nfthe Comnionwealth. We were entangle
those who did not censure Gov. hunk fur suggesting a
delay of at lertA one term in' the time of - reatiming pay- .
meat, !whose we believed it better—bad as the alternative
was—to postpone the resumption, than to begin and
At this time. however, there can be but one opinion
on the subject of continuing the payment; and there
ought to he instant and vigorous. concert of action both
amongst Tax-payers and fiscal the agents, throughout
the state, to effect this desirable purpose. Every hope
connected with the faultier prosecution of our unfinished
lines of Public improvement, would be utterly blasted by
any new revulsion - in Atnerican credit, which must re
sult from another Libre of payMent by 'Pennsylvania.
Money is at 'a very low rate of interest in Europe at
this time--scarcely eiceedmg three per cent in any of
thd large commercial cities. If no reverse takes place,
money will be readily obtained, we belie7e, to complete
works of such obvious importance, as the North Branch
Canal and the New York and Erie Rail-road. There is
no reason why capitafiste abroad should not be es ready
to embark in the completion of the half-finished works,
as they were to go on with the Illinois canal. It is of
the utmost consequence therefore—independent of the
paramount considerations of honor and good faith—that
our credit abroad should'be maintained at 'this time, by
the punctual payment of the interest on the State debt.
We perceive the State Treasurer, as he is authorized
to do, has offered to release five per cent upon all monies
paid into the Treasury by the several counties, before the
time of paying the interest. It has occurred to us—and
we respectfully ask the attention of our own County
Commissioners to this point—that if this proposition of
the State Treasurer was extended by the Commissioners
of the different counties to all those of the taxpayers who
will pay their taxes in' time, there would not be the
slightest difficulty in a prompt and adequate payment.
If any thing be done on this subject—to be effectual—it
must be done immediately.
The valuation of Bradford county is set down at $3,-
075, 784 ;—the amount of tax assesses) $9,458 10;
the amount payable $8,701 4S. The amount which'
could be saved to the County, by payment before the
15th ofJuly-5 per cent-$435 07.
The Right Spirit.
Several of the counties are moving in reference to the
selection of candidates preparatory to the fall elections,
and very general determination seems to prevail, to.no.
minate only such men as will sustain the usages of the
party, by adhering to regular nominations. The Demo-
cratic party has proved, conclusively, by its vote at the
last fall election that it has the ability when acting har
moniously, to control the elections for state officers, and
to hold a triumphant majority in both branches of the Le.
gislature. It is, however, sometimes the case, when the
strength of party is well ascertained that it brings loth
aspirants for office who are more clamorous than useful.
Such men often fail to accomplish their purpose, to se
cure a nomination either for themselves or some friend
of - fellow feeling ; and forthwith charge corruption upon
the party; and wheeling into the line of the enemy, aid
defeating the regularly made nomination of the Herne
cracy, destroying the landmarks and trampling upon the
usages of the party to which they professed to belong.
Beware of such democrats. They are enemies in dis
guise and the quicker they are driven out of our camp
the better. We find no fault with men for endeavoriig
by all honorable exertion to secure a nomilltion for of
fice. Let every one who desires to sere the people in
a public capacity present his claims fairly before them.
If he is a democrat, he will seek for knominition only
at the hands of his party in a convention of delegates
chosen by hisfellow citizens for the sole purpose of ma
king , a proper selection of candidates for the different of
fices. Of course all cannot be grati fi ed. But thiS can
every democrat do; and this he is bound to do—support
the regular nominations of the party. He has had his
claims,fairly canvassed, and has ne right, because he hoe
been less fortunate than his neighbor, to go away dig.
'Satisfied. He is bound, while he claims to be a member
of the democratic party to support the regular democratic
ticket and nothing but the tickei.
There is much good sense in the following paragraph
from the Mountain Sentinel, a sterling democratic pa
per published in Cambria County :
...Union and harmony in our ranks, is all that is ne
cessary, to secure the success of our party, and it is in
every icurnbent upon democrat to exert his influence to eff
ect that desirable end het us proceed systematically in the
selection of our candidates, and in strict accordance with
the established usages of our party that our opponents
may receive no acquisitions from divisions in our ranks.
It is not our province to dictate to the people, or express
a preference for any particular individuals, but we will
cheerfully- acquiesce in whatever decisions they may
make. All we ask is the selection of good men and true
—men who are well qualified to discharge the duties of
the offices for which they are selected, and around whom
the democracy can rally, with spirit and energy—and
this is all that is necessary to secure our success. It is
only by our own divisions that the whigs eipect to tn•
umph, and we cannot tint indulge the hope that they
will this time be disappointed in their extietations."
ACCONIXODSTING POST MAST/La.—Then is a cer
tain Post Muter on the route between Towanda and
Eilsallville, who attaches so much importance to his ele
vation to office, that we presume he imagines himself
possessed of as despotic power as the Sultan of Turkey,
and that he is only second in importance to Sawn K.
Puts. Though he may possess a " little brief autbori•
ty," we would request him not to make the Reporter the
subject of his " fantastic tricks." Our package of papers
for the last week, legibly directed to Etlaallville and Ha
vensville, were returned to the office, by this important
personage, with directions to have the county written on
on them. This is our excuse to our subscribers, in those
places, for their non arrival. IVe shall, and do take eve
ry pains to scenic the speedy transmission of our men,
as soon as "printed, and if this offence is repeated, we
shall feel bound to inform our subscribers where the
blame lays, and take measures to prevent its recurrence.
We trust, however, there will be no necessity for further

awaking to theiroum intense Too long have they been .
brindi . and Worse than blind on the subject of public ins-,
Vrovament in,thanonbena part of the state. We read-,
leetweli.'when appropriations to the North Branch Ca
nal were asked for at the hand' of the legislature, that
the fiercest opposition was met with in the members from
the city'' and county 'of Philadelphia. We remember on
oneoccasiou of trying to convince a Philadelphia mem
ber of the utility and importance of the North 'Branch
Canal when completed, and that be seemed to be alarm
ed at the bare suggestion. " Why," said he, "it will be
suicide. It will only be building an avenue to drain
the wealth of P t eunsylvania into New York." And we
failed to convince bim of the truth,—thet it would afford
a chance for an interchange of commodities between the
two states to an almost unlimited extent—the coal and
iron of Pennsylvania for the salt al gypsum of New
Ycek ; and that these articles alone, to say nothing of
lumber, merchandise &c., would furuish more tonnage
than could be found upon an equal numberof miles
of any other canal in the state.
Had Philadelphia known her rue interests, or been
represented by such ntten as the Editors of the Penrisyll ;
vanian, the North Branch Canal would have been fin
ished long since.
" The books for subscription terns stock of the North
Branch Canal Company, will be opened at Wilkesbarre
on the 17th inst., and there is now every indication that
the stock will he taken and the work pushed forward to
• speedy completion. The opening of this important im
provement has been been looked forward to by the peo
ple of Northern Pennsylvania with anxious expectation
for many year*, and when that desirable end is attained,
it will not only 'furnish to that section a new and valua
ble market for the products of their soil and inexhausta
ble mines, but will draw an immerse amount of trade up
on our State improvements. It would have been far prefer
able could the State have completed the 'nark, but as that
was out of the question in the straitened coeition of the
treasury, and while we are compelled to strain every
nerve to meet even our interest, we are glad to see it
going into the hands of an enterprising company, and
that the inducements held out by the State are such as
to prompt to immediate action.
There can be no reason why this line should remain
unfinished. As it is at present, it is the cause of a far
greater evil than the mere loss of interest upon its cost,
or the decay caused by time. It is an eye-4ore7—a source
of continual disappointment and regret to an boned and
industrious people, whose natural position possesses but
few advantages for trade, but who have toiled on steadily
in sunshine and in storm, asking but little of the State,
but unfortunately-prevented from obtaining even that.
Finish it, and an impetus would be given to business
which would drive out the products of their mountains
and valleys with ten-fold rapidity, and add immeasura

of the thirteenth yearor o ; after this period it
begins to lose its effect, ud gradually becomes

At about this epoch of life it begins to approach
