dean +e ? -There is mei hairdetintmi
county, I say, which is net WorthY of
public portraiture. Our giaceitdly . ,sounded
moraines—our winding streams with beautiful
names—our contrasts of mountain and plain
with the cosy village" nestling betweenk r lms
no one all appreciative word to tell of these
charming features of our Susqueharma home?
Why, after nearly 80 years familiarity, every
ride still twinge to my view vistas of rare beau
ty, well worthy of long travel to beheld. Doubt
less the trains on the railway next season will
bring tourists from far to feast upon scenes
which we seem too stolid ourselves to admire.
Perhaps a few,such descriptive letters may
wake up the unts to enter upon this. "virgin
field." For excePtingone oilpainting of "-Wye-
lusing," in possession of Col. C. F. WISLUX, and.
the photographic and stereoscopic views by Mr.
Moan' of Dime, our topological Charms a/114-
nocent of canvass "waste Weir sweetness."
Please stop the quotation just there, because
the rest of it," desert ais," can have nothing to ,
do with the picturesque anywhere on oul? own
Susquelumna. If no others have time or taste,
do let the school-teachers throughout our comi
ty open their estlietical eyes, and give th 4 RE
swarm pictures of the beautifuL And that re
minds me of a recent visit with A. A. Simscr,
Superintendent of the Bradford public schools.
Ho has daring two past months traveled proba
bly 300 Miles, to and fro through the county,
has held 34 teachers' examinations, at which
148 males and 389 females presented themselves,
and he has issued 484 provisional and 7 profes
sional certificates.
Of these 537 pedagogic candidates, 153 bad
never taught. To these items, allow - me Uri
add what the Superintendent's modesty would
withhold. From my own obishrvations -at two
examinations, and from reliable persons else
where, I am free to Say that, for fairness, thor
oughness, and fir presentation of honest tests'
on the topics orderedtly law, Mr. llzettrrcould
not be excelled, and that ho evinced an amount
of patience and forbearance.equaled only by his
kindness and desire to do even justice to all.
He reports the teachers generally to be pret
ty well qualified for their responsible avocation,
a recent newspaper article to the contrary not
withstanding. In,his opinion the 'teachers of
Bradford would not compare unfavorably with
those of any couuti in Pennsylvania.
It rejoiced me to be assured by him that in
many sections, conntoditins and well-furnished
school-houses are taking tho places of the din
gy, ill-constructed nuisances of the not- remote
past; that uniformity of text-books prevails
widely, and that his :300 miles of exploration
brought him almost everywhere in contact nith
an air of educational thrift and desire for pro
The directors and citizens generally attended,
io eicininations and evinced hearty interest
in the exercises.
gis a fact worthy of commendation, that di
reCtorg, lxfure engaging teachers for their dis•
tricts, were observed almost invariably to IN
right course for all concerned, and promises
well for the future of our schools.
The Superintendent is busily engaged in vis
iting schools. He ought to have an ollice at
the county seat for the convenient distribution
of school documents, and for interviews on sta
ted days with all concerned in school manage
ment as they may seek information.

When this township v. - as tirst se tikd is
exactly known. But Mr. Lo, the poor Indian,
is said to have had the that lien out what real
estate there is luxe, and history says he melted
away before the anvance of civilization like-dew
before the morning sun. lit I have heard it
said that civilization means, in that case, a free
use of poor whisky. But the race is not extinct
yet, if we may take the words of a noted, mem
ber of the Towanda bar, as he styled a good
democrat of this town "Big Indian" in a very
forcible ma ncr. But I can assure you that
getting civilized will not hurt him, by tiny
Why they called this town Bidgbury I cannot
tell, my knowledge being limited. I don't think
it originated with 3lr. Lo or family. Some one
has Said it W - as onacconnt of the amount of ber
ries that grow on the ridges, which I think ism
supposable . icase in every sensemf the word.
The Water is good, and is said to mix very
well with whisky, as it makes the latter article
pleasanter to take, and not so dangerous to the
equilibrium of the drinker.
We have creeks here, and in high water they
make quite a nigh ; and as a general thing they
rush down stream with a vengeance. Why they
run down hill 1 don't know, but 1 suppose they
can't run up hill, as that would be upddll busi
nese. The hills are as high.ns need be for com
fort, and the laud faces the sun from all points
of the compass.
Ridglipry produces all kinds of grain in abun
dance that are adapted to the soil, and as a
general thing good crepe are the result of good
cultivation. Butter pays well here, and farmers
that have a good dairy farm areas independent
as any class of people you can find. Butter
makers feel sere over the depression in the
money market and the consequent dullness of
all kinds of country produce.
We have no very rich men bete, nor none so
poor that are deprived of God's blessing. There
are as few sheriff's sales here as in any town
shipin the county. The men are like all other
men ; they as a class average fair.' The women
ditto, only a little fairer.
The young men swear, chew tobacco, smoke
fine cigars and drive fast horses and of course
criticise the dress or appearance , of this or that
young damsel that-they saw at the last party.
The young ladies—why bless their hear little
hearts—"they dr4srfalr I have not a word
to say against them, and would say nothing - if I
They are sunshine and happiness, full of
mirth, fun and frolic, unless at timeswhen they
are unhappily disappointed. Then they are
transformed from the maiden fair to the maiden
foal in short order.
ilidg,bury has tiVo places or centers for doing
business—Centreville and Benny Creek—or
Peunyville, as sometimes called. Centreville
boasts of a store, post-office, and cooper shop;
also a justice of the peace. Scully Creek is a
business place—has two stores, hotel, and two
'blacksmith shops, all of which do a thriving
business. EvsNs k Coders have lately erected
a new store and tilled it with now goods, and
are supOying the wants of their customers in a
most dhliging manner. Old CHAIILEY runs the
hotel. lie is a fat, jovial, good-natured' fellow,
and when not crdssixl with any trouble, waits
on the wants of all who call' to the general sat
isfaction of the public.
Major J. C. Itonmsox owns and runs the oth
er store ; is also postmaster and town commis
sioner; is a man of good business capacity—s
man of many, friends and few enemies. - He is
doings good paying business.
