withstanding the fact that the subject is old, and perhaps
threadbare, the remarks did not seem commonplace,and
the interest was well sustained throughout. The discus

were touched upou, such as whether a teacher could gov

THE TWENTY SECOND OF FEBRUARY AT
TOWANDA The late hour at which the proclamation of
the President was received, prevent: d, to a considerable
degree, as extensive arrangements as would otherwise
have been made for the commemoration of the birthday
of the immortal WASHINGTON, at this place.
At two o'clock p. M. the Church bells, and other bells
of the town, announced in long aud merry peais, the as
.e nbling of the people at the Court House. The meeting
was largely attends, much of the space iu our large
Court room beiug filled by ladies. The meeting was
opened by calling to preside, the Hon. Ulysses Slcrcur,
who, on taking the chair, thanked the meeting for the
honor conferred on uim, and in announcing the object of
the meeting alluded at length, in most eloquent and
glowing terms, to the deep interest felt by all true and
loyal people upon this occasion, in view of the moment
ous condition of our beloved country, aud the late glori
ous victories of the Union army. After the appointment
of G. I). Montanye and W. C. Bogart as Secretaries, an
appropriate prayer was made by Rev. B. J. Douglas.—
C. L Ward. Esq. by invitation, then read in an impress
ive manner, Washington's Farewell Address. Never,
| perhaps, were those almost prophetic words of that ira-
I mortal man, listened to with more profound and intense
j interest, than now, as they fell from the lips of the
After the reading of the Address a committee was ap
pointed consisting of W. C. Bogart, William Elwell, J,
C. Adams, G. F. Mason, and 3. S. Rusaeil Esqs., to pro
cure materials and to illuminate the Court House during
the evening. It was also resolved that this meeting ad
journ until svening.
There was a large attendance in the evening. The
Court House was brilliantly illuminated, and the Court
room embellished with the glorious Stars and Stripes.—
■ Portraits of the 44 Father of his Country," and the grsat
LAFAYETTE, and pictures of places and scenes associated
with the times of these illustrious dead, were conspicu
ous to remind us of their virtues, tlieir patriotism, and
their sacrifices in founding this great Uniou, which trai
tors with unholy efforts are now attempting to destroy.
The illumination iu front of the Court Hou-c, emtiiomatic
I of the Red, White, and Blue, elicited mnch prube, aud
; reflects great credit upon J. F. Bender, Esq.. who design
ed and prepared it. The meeting was presided over iu
the evening by Dr. Charles Turner, assisted by II.S.
Ifercnr and Col. John F. Means as Vice Presidents. Ad
dresses were delivered by E. T. Eliiott, Esq., Hon. U%
Mercnr, Col. Elhanan Smith, Harry Ward, P.D. Morrow,
C. L. Ward. Esqs., and others, all eloquent and glowing
with patriotic sentiments, an l with three rousing cheers

off", all feeling grateful that we still have a country to
love and a will and power to preserve it.

Threshing Machine Agency.
THE SUBSCRIBER IS SOLE AGENT
' in the county of Bradford and the neighboring coun
ties in Pennsylvania and New York, for
Celebrated Threshing Machines,
EMERY'B ONE AND TWO HORSE POWERS, are
too well and popularly known to need any description
from me, and I will only say that they continue to de
serve the reputation they have enjoyed for ten years, of
being the " btest Endless Chain Horse Power "in use."
These Powers possess conveniences and advantages pos
sessed by no other power.
EMERY'S NEW PITENT
THRESHER AND CLEANER
This a new Machine, and has not before been intro
duced into this region. It has no endless chain straw
carrier, bnt separates all kinds of grain thoroughly from
the straw, by a combination of Pitts' Endless Canvass
Celled Apron, a new Improved Revolving Picker, and
the well known Vibrating Riddle. If, is a simple, durable
and efficient Machine, will thresh rapidly and clean thor
oughly, without wasting, all kinds of grain. It will nor.
choke, run easily and steadily, without jumping, and is
warranted to he superior to the common Rake" Cleaner
now in use. It remains only to be seen and tested, to be
pronounced by every experienced hand at threshing, to
lie an admirably contrived and constructed Thresher and
EMERY'S IMPROVED THRESHERS & SEPARATERS
are not excelled by any in market, are well constructed,
simple and durable. lam prepared to supply all kinds
at manufacturers prices and terms.

tive Catalogues, prices, &c., applv to

the close of the Spring term.
No deduction wiil be made for absence, except (a case
of protracted iikiess of over Uvo weeks.
Instrumental Music will not, as heretofore, he taught in
the Institution.but by special arrangement—a class vrlll
be taught in a hall adjoining the grounds of the Institute,
by the Teacher of Vocal Music.
This arrangement has been adopted for the past term,
and experience has proved it to be eminently superior to
the plan pursued in former years. Special paius will bo
taken to secure the greatest progress of those wishing to
take lessons in this branch. Terms will beas heretofore :

ble thai they also furnish their own bed and bedding
when it is convenient, but wL.n otherwise, tikes# will b
famished at a slight charge.
It is strongly recommended that student! from abroad
should board in the Institution, as better opportunities
for advancement in study are thereby secured.
Normal Department —Special exercise# are arranged
without extra charge for those preparing themselves as
Teachers of Common Schools. Prof. Cl 4. COBL'RX, the
able and well known Superintendent of Common School#
In the county, has kindly consented to organize the Tea
cher's class, and direct the course to be pursued.
He will also be present-to conduct its exercises as often
as practicable, apd will deliver frequent lectures on th#
Theory and Practiceof Teaching, as also on other

Those persons, therefore.intending to engage inteacn
ing for the winter, will find it greatly to their advantage
to be present during the Fall term.
Prof. Coburu's connection with the institution i# not
such as to in any way interfere with the discharge of th#
regular duties of his office.
No pains will be spared, on the part of the Faculty and
Trustees in sustaining the high npnliUtina the Institu
