WO3 OCORT TO Par I—The following sensible re
marks have seine force in this latitude. The practice of
laying the labor of the printer under contribution, is too
ptev,dent in tr ‘ oat placcv, and the subuntsbio4 to its impo
sition must have originated in a feeling of benevolence
on the one aide, which is wrong ; and on the other in a
direct ignorance of the rights of the Printer. Who
would think of calling upon • carpenter, painteror other
mechanic, to perforin work upon a church or other be
nevolent institution, and sending him away unpaid, and
ninhanked. And yet the amount paid for the labor of
compositors Ac., in working grutuilousfy is as dead
loss as it would be to any other profession or trade..
' There is no reason in the world why the publisher
of a paper should be expected to pay his compositors for
setting the type of religious, moral, or political advertise-,
menu!, without being paid therefor.
Every type that is used in a newspaper must be paid
for, either by the publisher or advertiser, and to expect
notices to be published gratis is to ask the publisher to
put his hand in his pocket twenty times per day, wheth
er he feels able or willing io favor the object of the ad
vertisement or not. Publishers should charge for 'tind
ers rendered, and then give according to their disposition
'and means."
TOWASDA ACIDSXIr...-We inadvertently omitted,
last week; to mention the gratification and pleasure we
experienced in being present at the Towanda Academy,
on the evening of the lain day of the quarter ending Fri

intended as an exhibition of the progress made by the
scholars reflected-great credit both upon the Teachers
and their pupils, and gave evidence that under Mr...Vee

position and confidence which it held in its palmist days.

by which an infant child of Mr. Coleman was burned to

in the house while she went out to milk, and in coming
in, found him sitting on the bed, his frock burned entire

Saturday, when Death released him from all suffering.

O'Connell• who assumes to be the tribune of

of a million and a half, to be expended in the
purchase of food—he calls for a tax of fifty per

Theextraortlinary and well authenticated cures wrought
by the celebrated Sousa COATED Pitts, or Dr. Smith's °
Improved Indian Vegetable Pills, have naturally draien
public attention to them. Perhaps io the history of Medi.
cine, from the time of Hippocrates, to the present day,
there is no evidence of a medical compound obtaining
equal celebrity in so short a time. There was never a
medicine recommended by such high authority as Dr.
Smith's Pills. Besides their great curative properties, 1 1
(possessing as they do, such astonishing powers to open
all the natural drains of the body, viz: the LVEGE. Kt D.
NETS, SEM, andllowitis) they are, unlike all other
palls, extremely pleasant, being coated with sugar, and as
they, do not gripe, nor produce nausea, or any other un
pleasant consequences, they have become very popular
for Dyspepsia, Headache, Costiveness, Bilious complaint's,
Foul Stomach, Fevers, Worms, Want of Appetite, Im

• Portiricerroer.-11 is a settled creed in all correct
medical jurisprudence, that unless the blood is kept free
from impurities, the whole system must inevitably be
come diseased. W hen the blood becomes, clogged, thick,
and moves through the veins and arteries with a sluggish
motion, we may rest assured that sickness, wih its con- .
comitant train of evils, is about to ensue. The utmost
care acd greatest precaution are therefore necessary, and
the systetn should be closely watched. Those who gen
erally provide themselves with mild and aperient physic,
should give a preference to sorb as are of a strictly veg
etable nature. Brandreth's Vegetable Universal Pills
appear to be the universal favorite, as they are composed
entirely of Vegetables and co-operate so effectually—
cleansing the system—purifying the blood and removing
all undue hiliary secretions.
