A COUNTY POOR HOUSE.
Petitions to the legislature in favor of the erection of
a countv poor house in Bradford county, are about to be
put In circulation, and I beg leave to direct the attention
of the public to some of the advantages of such an insti
1 It is much more economical than the present system.
The amount of poor taxes paid by the people of the
county is very large. There are few of the townships in
which no poor tax is necessary, and many of our town
ships and boroughs are heavily burthened for the support
of the poor. That all the paupers of the county could be
supported at a much less expense if kept together is as
evident as that a family can live more cheaply at the
jame table than if esch person were separately provided
for. If the statistics of the aniouut of poor taxes now
psid in Bradford county were collected, it would show an
•oorraous expenditure. This could certainly be greatly
■nicced by the purchase of a good tract of land, the
ereciion of large buildings upon it, and the supporting of
all ;he county poor in one establishment. Their condi
tion would be much more decent and comfortable, —there
woutd be fewer sham paupers—a considerable share of
their food could be raised upon the laud, those of them
who would be at times able to work could be furnished
ilh employment, and the institution couid thus be made
2. The burden is now not equally borne. Many of our
townships and boroughs are quite small, and some of the j
poorest have the misfortune to have so many paupers J
that they are unable to do much for them. The town
ship organization is convenient in some respects, but it
is too small in Pennsylvania for this purpose. There is
no reason why the poor of the county should not tie sup-
ported at the county expense, every tax payer would j
then pay his proper share of the cost, which beiug thus
equally distributed, would be much less oppressive,
i 5. Much litigation would be avoided. Few persons are
L wire ol the expense arising out of disputes between the
K-m districts as to the settlement of paupers. The facts
Bv.ve ch a settlement depends are frequently difficult to
■ ucrria with certainty and are fruitful sources of law
I J sets mended with ln-avy bills of costs and expenses, to
be paid oat of the poor taxes. This wonld all be avoided
tit asking t he whole county a single poor district.
I i. At present there are a number of lunatics in the
fare Asylum at Harrisburg, who when they have not
lets charged with any crime, must be supported by the
pwr districts in which they have a settlement. This is
charge which is found to lie very oppressive, and could
I? changed by the proposed law. A numlier of suits have
teen brought against some of the townships by the State
lunatic Asylum, and judgments recovered, which they
ma unable, as they are certainly unwilling to pay.
Experience is in favor of the county poor house ys
tan. In rnest of the oldest counties of the State, and iu
I ear cities, and in the State of New York, it prevails, and
ladvantages are admitted wherever it has bjeii tried.
I S I-ast, but not least. Humanity oafls loudly for the
•holition of our present disgraceful system. It may be
"ue that our paupers are not now sold like slaved at auc
| ton, but this is practically done by letting ont their
Iniintenance to those who will take them on the lowest
brmi. That the treatment they receive at the hands of
I I 'c to whose tender mercies they are committed by the
Ipccr master, is often unkind and sometimes cruel, may
be imagined. 1 fear an investigation into the con-
K-iioa of the paupers of our county would unfold a tale
P&h would reflect disgrace on the large, wealthy and
R-sserous county of Bradford. Of all the evils which
PAnads upon us, perhaps the worst is extreme poverty
r-'iiat of the first necessities of life, food, raiment,
R- - shelter. Who would not rather face sickness, pain
F'-'ren death, rather than entire destitution aud beg-

p-aanity, much less if he has a spark of Christian

In the death of the last mentioned one, the circle of
his friends has lost one who was much beloved and es
teemed by all who knew him. He was a young man of
good habits and gave promise of great usefulness. It
seems but a very short time since he received the con
gratulations of his friends at his marriage, and since that
event in October last he appeared to develop his charac"
ter rapidly. When the disease of which he died entered
the household and prostrated the other members of the
family he watched and nursed them with all care until
the recovery of his sisters, and then concentrating his
attention upon his brother, he looked forward to his early
recovery, but in this he was disappointed, and on the
day of his brother's death, he was himself taken, and the
terrible scourge soon ran its course. His death, so sud
den, so unlooked for, cast a gloom over our entire com
munity, by all of whom the deceased was beloved. It is
a mysterious providence and it comes to each one with a
lesson of instruction. When told as he was, on the
morning of the day he died that his end was near, he re
ceived the message with calmness and resignation, sent
for several of his friends and bade them farewell, ex
pressed his confidence in his Saviour and died in the hope
of eternai life through the atoning merits of the Lamb of
"Be ye also ready, for in such an hour as ye think.not
the Son of Man cometh."

The deceased was a young man of an amiable disposi

him. Yet in the bloom of youth he was stricken down
and the hope of fond parents blighted.
