Mr. Morrow presented the annual report of
the Treasurer, which was accepted as satisfac
The Association then took up the considera
tion the question, " What is the best method
of teaching the Alphabet ?" The discussion
was continued for some time, and with consid
erable interest, conducted by Messrs. Colt, Co
burn, Wright, Corbiu, and others—when it
Resolved, That Misses E. Preston, F. O. An
drews, and Mary Britton be a committee to
prepare a report on this subject, to be present
ed at the next meeting.
The following Resolution was then taken up
for consideration :
Resolved, That Government should be taught
by Teachers as a science.
The discussion on this embraced the subject
of instruction in the principles of moral obliga
tion—in the nature of our relation to the State
•—the subject of civil government, and espe
cially the importance of instructing the young
in the particular political constitution of the
States. The debate was participated in by
Dr. Bliss, Messrs. Coburn and Morrow, and
in the progress of the debnte the Association
adjourned till 7 o'clock this evening.
The evening session was opened with music
by the Musical Association of Towauda. The
nnfinished business was resumed, and on mo
tion of Mr. Coburn the resolution was amend
ed and adopted as follows :
Resolved, That pupils in our common schools
should, when practicable, be instructed relative
to their duties as citizens of the commonwealth
of Pennsylvania, and of the Uuited States, as
well as the duties they owe to their teachers
and their parents.
The Association then took up the considera
tion of the following resolution :
Resolved, That when the scholar is commenc
ing the study of Grammar, the teacher should
use much oral instruction and many more and
simpler illustrations than arc generally contain
ed ill our text-books on the subject.
Tho discussion was introduced by Messrs.
Coburn and Corbin, and postponed to hear the
essay and address ; when Miss Pitcher read
an essay—subject, " Euergy and Perseverance
necessary qualifications of the Teacher.'' Af
ter music, the Rev. Mr. llendrick, the Presi
dent of the Association for the previous year,
delivered an address—subject, " Discipline of
the mind the great object of scholastic Educa
On motion, it was
Resolved, That the thanks of the Associa
tion be tendered to Miss*Titeher for her ap
propriate and interesting essay, and to Mr.
Hendrick for his eloquent address.
The discussion on the subject of Grammar
was resumed, and carried on by Messrs. Colt,
Corbin and Morrow. Messrs. Macfarlane,
Booth, Bartlett, and Rev. Mr. Foster took
part in the debate.
The discussion was throughout animated and
Interesting, presenting and illustrating impor
tant principles and facts on the subject. The
peculiar abstruseness of the study of Grammar
—its importance—the inexpediency of prema
ture attention to this branch, a study which
belongs rather to advanced than to elementa
ry education—the importance of regarding it
as an art and teaching it by exercises in Eng
lish composition, and the close study of the
best English writers—the inefficaev of all at
tempts at extreme simplification ; those and
other interesting aspects of the subject, were
presented by the speakers. On motion, the re
solution was laid on the table.
It was on motiou,
Resolved, That we tender our thanks to the
Musical Association of Towanda, for their ser
vices, which have been so gratifying to the As
sociation, and have contributed so pleasantly
to engage aud increase public interest in the
exercises and business of the evening.
After music, the Association adjourned till
Saturday morning at 9 o'clock. Concluded
with prayer by Rev. Mr. Foster.
The Association met on Saturday morning
according to adjournment, aud took up the fol
lowing resolution :
Resolved, That we highly approve of San- '
ders' Elementary aud Elocutionary Chart, and !
recommend its introduction into our schools.
Afif litH-tiing to some remarks tyr Mr. Co
burn on the nature and use of the Chart, the
resolution was adopted.
Misses S. Benham, M. Beecher, M. Barnes,
were appointed ft committee to report at the (
next meeting on tho best method of teaching
Mr. Morrow offered the following resolu
Resolved, That the present system of taxa
tion for the support of the common schools of
Pennsylvania is the true cue.
Mr. Morrow supported the resolution at
considerable length ; when Mr. Guycr moved
as an amendment—
" That the principle recognised by the pre
sent system of taxation for the support of
schools in this State, is a correct one, and that
it should be so extended in its appli- ation as
to make all the property in the commonwealth
equally liable for the education of all the chil
Mr. Guycr was heard on the subject, ami in
reply to some of tlie arguments of Mr. Mor
row ; Messrs. Coburn and Booth continued
the debate, when the further consideration of
the subject was postponed till next meeting.
Dr. Holmes, from a committee appointed on
the subject, reported the following obituary
notice of the late MissF. E. Hendrick, a mem
ber of the Association, which was adopted :
" Miss FLORA E. HENDRICK, one of the first
members of the Bradford County Teachers'
Association, died Sept. 12th, 1855. As a
Christian, the character of the deceased was
marked by decision and euergy, and her forti
tude in suffering was but the result of the sim
ple faith which had sustained her through life,
as a scholar, she was conspicuous, and her ha
bits of thought were clear and accurate ; deep
ly impressed with the importance and responsi
bility of the station of a teacher, she slirauk
from no toil which could contribute to the wel
fare of her pupils ; and during some years of
| experience in teaching, her labors were crown
ed with eminent success.
t Resolved, That the Association profoundly
; feeling the losai so soon, of so valuable a ineru
i bcr, do also tender to the bereaved friends of
our departed sister our lieart-felt sympathy."
The Rev. Mr. Corss made some remarks ou
the character of the deceased, and addressed
to the members of the Association appropriate
considerations of condolence and admonition.
P. D. Morrow, Esq., was appointed to de
liver the address at next meeting.
Messrs. O. J. Ghubbuck, C. F. Phelps, and
D. B. Cotton were appointed a busiuess com
The Association then adjourned to meet at
Leßaysville on the third Friday of February
next. Concluded with prayer by the Rev. Mr.
THF. WESTERN HOG TRADE. —The hog killing
season will commence at Louisville about the
20th inst. The Courier of Monday says :
It has been estimated that 300,000 hogs
would be slaughtered round the falls this sea
son, but we now think the number will exceed
325,000 head, aud probably 350,000. There
is now a better feeling in the market than has
prevailed for sometime, though in consequence
of the continued stringency in money matters
many buyers are still holding back. The pre
vailing quotations for good hogs to be deliver
ed at the pens are 6a6 1-4 cents net, while
; drovers in the country are asking 4 1-2 cents,
;on time. We hear of a sale of 2,000 head at
I 6 cents net, and learn that several lots have
j been offered at 6 1-8 cents net.
j The Cincinnati Gazette, of Saturday, says :
Hogs arc held as heretofore, with great lirin
; ness, and from 25 to 50 per cent, above tin
views of buyers. Holders of heavy hogs con
tend for $7, aud there are no sellers below
$6 75 for delivery this month, but these rates
being above the views of buyers, prices must
be set down as nominal.
The St. Lonis Intelligencer , of the Oth says :
Hogs were offered to-day at sfi, but buyers
at that figure were not about. The rate up the
country appears to be 5a5 25, and slow at the
The Indianapolis (Ind.) Journal, of the 10th,
Hogs are inactive, at least siuec the resto
ration of the Hog Law, which confines them to
their pens. There is little doing among our
packers ; $5 50 appears to be the only rate
at which we can quote them. We heard of
some small lots taken at that yesterday.
The llopkiusville (Ky.) Press, of the Oth,
At a sale about 7 miles west of this city, on
the Bth inst., a lot of stock hogs, which would
average about 45 pounds gross, sold for $4 30
cash per head, or about ten cents per pound.
A lot of fine pork hogs also were sold at $3 94
per 100 pounds gross.
UTAH AND THE PLAINS. —The mail from the
Salt Lake settlements has arrived at Indepen
dence, Mo..after a trip of 30 days. Provi
sions were reported to be scarce at Salt Lake
city. The Mormon emigrant trains were ar
riving daily in good condition. Owing to the
danger from the Indians in the mountains, and
to prevent white men from furnishing them
with arms and ammunition, the traders in all
that country are ordered to repair to Fort
Laramie, and reside there during the winter.
Gen. Harney intended going into winter
quarters soon on White river. Considerable
snow had fallen in the mountains, and the ice
in the Platte was some tan or twelve inches
thick. Plenty of water and grass on the
route in. The party brought in three passen
gers. The Indians are considered very dan
gerous on the route. This party traveled with
out an escort.
Gen. Sumner's command, which had started
to reinforce Gen. Harney, had been ordered
back to Fort Leavenworth, where they will re
main during the winter. It is said that Gen.
Harney will spend the winter iu the states—
the elements ou White river being too severe
for his health.
CURIOUS NEEPLECASE. —Dr. Fearing, of Nan

THANKSGIVING DAY has become one of the
'institutions' of this Commonwealth, and is
welcomed and observed with almost New-Eng
land strictness and pleasure. The recommen
dation of the Governor to set apart Thursday
' last, as a day of thanksgiving and praise to the
giver of every good and perfect gift for His
bounteous tncrcies during the past year, was
observed in this place by a general suspension
of business. Divine service was performed in
the forenoon, in all the churches ; while during
the day, many a family, separated during the
year, onee more re-assembled round the hearth
stone. We trust our readers have enjoyed
! their share of the blessings of the past year,
j and will be able to welcome the next Thanks

WAR WITH ENGLAND !
Wc hopie that the warlike aspect of the late
foreign news has not awakened apprehensions
of a rupture between this country and England,
|in the minds of any of our readers. They need
not indulge in fears, for there is not the remot
est prospect of such a disastrous contingency.
! The indications are not alarming enough to
: effect the nerves of the most timid old lady in
. the country. Divesting the whole matter of
; the bluster and braggadocia of the newspapers,
! and the two eouutries have no dispute, and no
i matter of disagreement which can possibly lead
to a quarrel. We consider a war between the
United States and England as impossible with
in the next quarter of a century. The latter
country has now on her hands quite as much
as much she can attend to, and will not be
likely to increase her burdens by such a load
as a war with us. On the other hand, she is
i one of the heaviest consumers of our cotton,
and a rupture with her would depreciate the
price of this southern staple, as well as the pro
perty employed in its production. The great
interests of Slavery are against a war with
I England, and as that influence controls the
legislation and diplomacy of the country, we
may safely conclude that such a war will never
occur, except when every other mode of settle
ment has been exhausted. The same, indeed,
may be said of any war, that does not tend to
the acquisition of slave territory. Aud then,
it is easier to acquire a slice, uow-a-davs, from
our needy neighbors, by purchase, and Uncle
j Sam's treasury abundantly supplied with the
j requisite for indefinitely extending our slave
area without the scandal of a war.
ATTEMPTED BANK ROBBEIIY.—ON Sunday
evening last, at 9 o'clock, as the clerk of the
Pynchon Bank, Springfield, Mass., was going
iuto the bank for the night, he was seized by
two men who had been awaiting him in the
dark passage. They demanded wliere the Cash
ier lived, which he refused to tell, when one of
them plunged a knife at his breast, which pen
etrated his coat but struck a thick wallet with
coin it, probably preventing a serious wound.
The clerk then shouted murder, aud the bur
glers fled. No clue to the would-be robbers
has yet been obtained.
PENNSYLVANIA COAL. —It is more than twen
ty-five years since Pennsylvania coal began to
| be a recognized article of production and corn
i meree. This year the product will amount to
no less than six millions of tons. This, as de
livered at the mines, is worth at least twelve
millions of dollars, so that this great sum may
be regarded as the amount of solid wealth dug
annually at the present time, from the bowels
of the earth.
AN OCF.AX OF BLOOD. —It is said that with
in a radius of five miles around Sebastopol,
more blood has been shed, more lives sacrificed,
and more misery inflicted within a year, than
on any other equal extent of the earth's stir-'
face in the same space of time, since the days
of Noah's flood.

CHASE SHOWING HIS THUE COLORS !
Our quondam friend, the ex-speaker, we are
happy to say, has at last reached a point which
seems to inspire him with new life and zeal
fiora the congeniality and appropriateness of
its associations. After beating about with ad
verse wimls and tides, tacking this way and
that way, and endevaoring to reach jiort
steering in every direction except the proper
one, he is at last grounded by the current that
has all the time been steadily and surely drift
ing him away from his principles. We need
hardly inform our readers that he has been
swallowed up in the maelstrom of Slavery-pro
pngnndism, 4 which yawns always to invite and
cngulph such frail and weak-headed political
navigators as himself. The fate was so inevi
tably his, that H causes no astonishment or re
gret to those who have watched his strange and
The Montrose Democrat, since the election,
has been a curiosity. We can hardly realize
that it is edited by the same man who endeav
ored to procure from the llarrisburg Conven
tion an endorsement of the course of Gov.
KEENER, and reprobation of the outrages of
the Missouri ruffians ; who was so indignant
at that refusal, that he did not place the name
| of PI.L'MMEB at the head of his paper, and re
fused in any way to countenance or endorse the
Convention. We can scarcely believe that it
I is the same paper that has lalnjred, in season
and out of season, to convince the Democracy
of Susquehanna that theirs was the true Free
I Soil party ; that there was no necessity for de-
I sorting the organization on state or county no
; miuees, but when the great issue came in 185G
then was the time to strike for Freedom, re
gardless of former party names or associations !
Yet it is the same sheet, that has roared so
loudly in times past, of the aggressions of Sla
very, and talked so boldly and defiantly, that
it almost seemed the very ehainpion of Free
dom. Now it comes to us, filled with the nsual
paltering and driveling and excuses so common
amongst your genuine, unadulterated doughfa
ces. It no longer denounces the usurpations
of slavery, it is villifying the advocates of Re
| publicanism. It has no longer rebuke for
ATCHISON* and his millions, but it is filled with
a holy horror of WII.MOT and SEWARD and HALE
and their sectional and treasonable schemes !
i To show how the tone of that paper has
changed, we propose to make a few extracts
from its columns, all appearing editorially with
in the last year :

A\ hat a falling off is here ! From BENTON
|to BUCHANAN at one plunge ! It is with no
emotions of satisfaction that we thus place
: side by side the evidences of CHASE'S perfidy
and vascillation. When the article from which
we have quoted appeared in November last,
, we then took occasion to say that his pretend
ed support of BENTON was all a sham, and that
when the day of trial came, he would be false
I to all his former professions.
i I lie political course of the Democrat has been
in the highest degree cowardly and disreputa
ble. It has gained for it the abuse and exe
. orations of those who tolerate its eccentricities
! while they make a tool of its editor, and the
I utmitigated contempt and disgust of the true
friends of Freedom. Feeling that the princi
ples of Freedom have taken strong hold in the
hearts of the people of Susquehanna, the De-
I mocrat has been piratically sailing under the
1 colors of Freedom, for base, deceptive and dis
• honorable purposes.
j We rejoice, as we have no doubt the true
men of Susquehanna will rejoice (if, indeed, the
\ concern is worth rejoicing over,) that CHASE
I has at length thrown off all pretensions aud
i subterfuges, and has openly taken his place in
the ranks of those who are the tools and ad
juncts of the Slave-power. The only influence
he ever possessed was acquired by his repeated
and zealous professions of friendship to the
cause of Freedom. He is no longer in a posi
tion whore he can betray that cause. He has
only been deterred from going over, body and
breeches, loug since, by the hope of deceiving
the voters of Susquehanna. He has at last
found his proper sphere, and we trust he will
have decency enough to do the dirty work of
his masters, without sullying the cause of Free
dom by any professions of support or regard.
Mr. CHASE takes ground in favor of JAMES
BUCHANAN for the Presidency: Hisvisitonce
upon a time to Wheatland, and the attentions
he received, proved too much for his suscepti
ble nature and for his weak intellects. Who

dignities. We recommend his case to the at

know how to deal with such stultified dough
CARRYING ir TOO FAR. —The market for bread
stuffs on this side the water is said to be much
above the advanced prices ruling in Liverpool
aud London. The French now buy cheaper
there than here. The New-York Post says
that the shipments now making are at one to
two dollars including charges per barrel more
for flour than in Liverpool ; and this fact aloue
renders bills drawn against them unsafe.—
Speculation has been carried too far. . The ad
vance in the foreign markets has been more
than anticipated long ago, and as the daily
supplies in the Xew-York have much increased
of late, prices are declining. We note another
decline in flour and grain in the market, and
the tendency is downward.

DISGRACEFUL MOB IN MAINE. —An attempt
to lay the corner-stone of a Catholic church in
Bath, Me., on Sunday last, was broken in up
on by a gang of rowdies and prevented. We
find the following account of the affair in The
; Bath Tribune.
On Sunday, as the Catholics attempted to
hold religious services appropriate to laying
the corner-stone of a new church, a large con
| course assembled to witness the exercises,
j which were prevented by rowdyism of the low
! est sort, and violence. During the foreuoon a
wooden cross which had been erected was for
cibly pulled down. Early in the afternoon an
American flag was raised amid the cheering of
a considerable number of )iersons, who showed
themselves hostile to the exercises and the oc
casion. Mr. Hussell, acting mayor, pulled the
flag down amid shouts of " hustle him out"
and hisses. But ou his leaving it was again
A rush was made for the corner-stone which
had been previously laid, and several attempts
made to remove it from its setting, which was
prevented, as we learn, by the exeLtions of
Marshal Walker and Mr. Constable Leach,
who kept the crowd at bay. There was much
bad talk, shouting, fighting, Ac. The Catho
lics, finding they would be opposed in their exer
cises, quietly withdreAV and left the lawless
mob in possession of the fiield. No attempt
that we hear of was made to arrest any of the
disturbers of the peace up to 4 o'clock. At
about 5 o'clock, the crowd having accomplish
ed their objects, and prevented the religious
exercises, gradually dispersed. Seeing the
temper of the people, the bishop sent word to
his parish that the exercises would not be held.
Some injury was done to private property, and
nuisances committed of which it is not decent
to speak. We blush to think that in this city
of churches and law and order the Sabbath
should be broken by such scenes of lawlessness
and violence. We are mortified that a few
low and irresponsible persous should be per
mitted to again blacken the character of our
ARREST OF BOGUS MO.N SY DEALERS. —On
Friday evening two men giving their names as
Win. F. Stoddard and J W. Lee were arres
ted for passing bogus money. The sample we
saw was a live dollar note on the Easton Bank,
Kansas Territory—the " Kansas T." being in
very small letters, placed in the lower part of
the shading of the figure five on the right end,
and the two so interwoven as to make it al
most imperceptible. The note bears date Sept.
20, 1855, No. 20, and is signed Geo. Ilervey,
President, E. Alton, Cashier. The engraving
is very coarse, and many of them, we are told"
very badly printed. On searching the parties
arrested, a large amount of the same kind of
currency, but on different banks, was found,
and some papers, agreeing to certain regula
tions in passing it. After a hearinir before
Justice Ulmer, they were both committed to
answer at court.— Lycoming Gazette.
