A COUNTY POOR HOUSE.
The people of this countywill be
called upon to vote at the October
election for or against the erection
of a County Poor House. Our coun
ty is without a hospital or asylum of
any kind, erected by either public or
private contributions for the allevia
tion of the ills incident to , humanity.
In barbarous countries there are no
suck institutions, but in all civilized
countries it is supposed that the peo
ple to some extent take, care of those
who are unable to kelp themselves.
A poor house is called for alike by
common humanity and an enlight
ened public policy.
This is-not a local question as it
is not likely that any neighborhood
will contend for the location of a
poor house very near them. Neither
is it a political question, but there,
may lie some religion in it.. "I was
an hungered and ye gave me no meat,
naked and ye clothed me not." It
,should not be discussed merely as a
question of cost, as there are some
duties which we owe to our unfortu
nate fellowmen even if they cost us.
money, but it is believed that a com
mon enmity poor house will be cheap
than the township system.
Tioga county it has worked very
satisfactorily. If it is thought best
that each township pay for keeping
its own poor in the county poor
house, such au amendment to the
net can hereafter be procdred and
the taxes in each township assessed
to pay its own account with the poor
house, but it is believed the county
plan is the most just and. it saves all
litigation between townships.
The following article on the ad
vantages of such an institution was
published in one of the county pa
pers in 1860 and led to the passage
of the original act which is now to
be voted on:
1. It is much more economical
than thepresent 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 townships and boroughs are
heavily burthened for the support of
the poor. That all the paupeyt of
the county could be supported at
much less expense if kept together
is as:evident as that a family can live
more cheaply at the same table than
if each person. were separately pro
vided for. If the statistics of the
amount of poor taxes now paid in
Bradford county were collected, it
would show an enormous expendi
ture. This could certainly be great
ly reduced by the purchase of a good
tract of land, the erection of large
buildings upon it, and the support
ing of all the county poor in due estab
lishment. Their condition would be
much more decent and comfortable
—there would be• fewer sham pan
' pers—a considerable share of their
food could be raised upon the land,
those of them who would be at times
able to work .could be furnished with
employment, and the institution
couldjhus be made partially self-sus
2. ° The, burden is now not- equally
borne. Mahy of our townships and
boroughs are quite small, and some
of the poorest have the misfortuneto
have so many paupers they are una
ble 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 iro reason why, the poor of the
county should not be supported at .
the county expense, every tax payer
would then pay his proper share of
the cost, which being. thus equally
distributed, would much less op
3. Much litigation would be avoid
ed. Few persons are aware of the,
expense arising out of disputes be
tween the poor districts- as to the
settlement of paupers. The faits on
which a settlement depends ere fre
quently difficult to ascertain., )With
certainty, and are fruitful sources
of lawsuits, attended . with heavy
.costs and expensen, .to be
paid out of the poor taxes. 'This
would au be avoided by nuking the
whole county a single ;poor die-
4. At present there aro a number
of lunatics in. the.. State Asylum at
Harrisburg, who when they have not
been charged with any, crime, must
pe*npported by the Poor districts in
which therhave a settlement: This
is a charge which is found to bo very
oppressive, and could be changed by
the psi:posed' -law. number Of,

There are eiceptions, but often thee&

selves, and hence as well as from the
grudging terms on which they era
obliged to contract to keep them, ine
really unable to provide them with
proper necessaries, sufficient attend

even a warm house to shelter them

are soon, warmly welcomed in' - the

In company with Mr; C. and daughtt
er, we next day paid our first visit to
the Capitol, which seemed as we
looked upon the massive structure,
almost as a " building not made with
hands," so grand, so lofty, so great
in its dimensions—we look with won
der upon the massive columns, w_hile
the marble arches above reminds one
of drifted banks of snow, so pure, so,
white. Now we enter the vast Ro
tunda, and -are lost in wonder, sur
prise and-admiration. On either side
and all around, are beautiful and
costly paintings, one particularly in
teresting was the " Baptism of Poen

residence of Gen.- Lee ; at the left
we see the greakNational Monument
which, when finished, will be 500'feet

From thence wp wend our way to
the Smithsonian! Institute, with its
world of curiosities: -Thee to the
Patent Office, Dead Letter Office, the
United States Treasury, with its fe
male clerks counting the money with
the rapidity of thought. Next we go
to the Botanical Gardens, with their
rare and beautiful plants. We visit
also the "Cities of the Dead;" also
formerly Ford's Thea

made his exit, mounted his hdrse and
escaped through the lane before us.
But we must now :passon to
Wednesday at 10 o'clock, a. in.,
we are on board the steamer 4rrom,
bound for Mount Vernon. The 'day .
is delightful, and as we glide down '
the broad bosom of the Potomac, our
hearts are filled with varied emotions.
Nov we pass the Arsenal, Navy Yard
with, its Stars and Stripes. Still:
further down and we stop at Alexae
dria. On the left 'is Fort Foote,
and yet further (loft and Fort Wash
ington appears in view, with its frown
ing cannon and armed soldiers. 'Still
on we go until Mount` Vernon ap
pears in the distance, and as we glide
rdong upon the bosom of this noble
river, its surface dotted with sails, a
solemnity takes possession of our
hitherto joyous hearts, for we realize
that we are nearing the burial place
of the Great Wenneoros, and as we
land and ascend a slight eminence
we find ourselves before -: the vault
containing his remains. There to
the right is his marble coffin, and to
the left that- of his wife. We linger
awhile, read the epitaphs on the mon
saments, ;kc., and then go to the Man
sion, which seems in - a good state of
preservation, although bearing marks
of antiquity. Guards aro stationed
here, as also through the grounds.
*Entering the house we see relics on

a resident of Warren for more thanl
fifty years,- living most of that time;
on the Owego and Montrose`turn-1
pike, ahout two miles west *from;
Warren} m.. He. was through . all
; his mature life emphatically a good )
man, as all who knew him will bear,
testimony. He was a. good neigh-1
bor, a good citizen and a kind hus
band and father,. In all the relations ;
of life he acted well his part, and nt
the ripe age of 82 has gone to rest.
-" Peaceful be thy silent Blomberg
Peaceful in shy grave so low,
Thou no more shall join our number,,
Thom no more oar wings shall Imow.'
While in thiti connection I would,
say that with all their thrift and en
terprise, there is one thing in which
the people of Warren, a :portion of
them at least, are behind the age.
They sadly neglect the -place Where
lie the remains of their loved ones.
I pissed:through •one of our burial
grounds the other day and was re
minded of "the field of the slothful
and' the vinyard of the' roan void of ,
understanding:" . Cattle had been
suffered to run .over and. trample. on
the 'graves, so that in inany instan
ces-the head-stones had been broken
or overthrown, animals of some kiwi
hadhurrowed in the graves, while•
on every hand , grew . the wild brier,
the thorn, ) and the thistle
Some of the graves iiitd not oven an
apOlogy fora monnmont; sunk back
almost to a level with the surround
ing earth they seemed -2-
A little barren sandy knoll,
And hardly by the shape is known
Where sleeps the palace of a soul.
Such things ought not to be. Who
world want a loved one huried in
Such a desolate forg4ten place? It
seemed as if the living in their greed
for gain had got their dead ones out
of sight as soort n.s possible witkno
thought or care for them farther. It
is true it makes do difference with
the dead where ,they lie, or what may
be their surrouidings. But ought
we not to have a, arp—for
The dust of this heaven-lamed erect divine,
-This Heaven-assumed majestic robe of earth
He deigned to wear who hong the vast expanse
With azure bright; and the mun'imold?,
Among our sawn suicestorn this
fact the sacred dust of our departed
friends, was continually kept in view,
hence they called the burial idiot
" God'snere," as if -it were u plaak
over which the Father of our r spirits
watched with, peculiar tare.. And
why wonder ' : we it this, since it is
the place where the bodies of His
children liei waiting far the resurec.:
tion morning, " Life's labors done,"
He folds their weary.hands and lays
them down to their last repose.
Let-us then, instead of neglecting
beautify the Christian's resting place.
Sweet is the place, where angels watch and weep,
Sweet is the grave and sanctified its sleep;
'Ti, not a place for grief to nourish este,
breathes hope and calls the heart to prayer."

A correspondent, of the Genevi
Courier relates the following story of
the " Kate Morgan, the steamer
which for more thin a generation has
plied on Cayuga Lake, her owners
obeying the, behest of the first pro
poietor, to " run her till she busts!'
Before . the Chancellor Livingston
stemmed the current of the Hudson,
yet after the little Clermont had
stirred the quieter waters of the Col
lect Pond, the whistle of the "Kate
Morgan" awoke the echoes in Tang
hanic Glen, and her- paddle-wheel
dashed the spray upon Cayuga bridge.
l'heie is a bit of romance attaching
to her name and building. Old, G en
eral Morgan, of Revolutionary film%
had a fine estate on the eastern bank
'cif the lake, not far, from where the
present Wells College now stands.
Between his only daughter, a lovely
girl of eighteen; and - yougrulton had
long existed a strong attachment,
which, however, the poveity and ob
senrity of Robert led the General to
severely 'frown upon. Fulton went
to New - York He labored long years
in perfecting his invention;, his day
of triumph came, - and then he wrote
to the' Stern father, relating his suc
cess and asking for the daughter's
" Nay,' wrote back the incredulous
olel . soldier, -" I'll believe what I see
'with my own eyes. Come you back,
scapeg,race, to the lake; build and sail
a steamboat-past my own door, and
th.en, and not till ;then, shall you
have my . daughter Kate." Need I
say. that -Fulton came joyfully back;
that a steamer was built as "rapidly
as circumstances would permit, that
she was launched- and in due time
did sail triumphantly past the Gen
eral's door ! But let me add that ac
cording to an express stipulation
made by the sly Robert in case he
succeeded—:when the "Kate Morgan"
sheered in towards the General
dock a small boat was seen pushin
out containing the original Kate, he
grim father and a gentlethan in cleri
cal 'vestments: net were soon on
board;and there, -amid the'waving of
flags, :he-ringing of belle and blowing
of whistleri, \ the proud inventor and
his prouder bride were made one. A
gloriou sweep np and down the lake
completed the first bridal trip by
steam ever known in this country.
There once lived in an old brown
cottage a solitary woman. Slie tend
ed her little garden,
and knit and
spun for her living. She was known
everywhere as "H.appy Nanci" She
had no money, nolamily, no relatives,
and was half blind, quite lame, and
very creoked: There Was no comeli
ness in her, and yet there, in that
hnmely„ deformed body, the great
God, who loves to - bring strength out
of weakness, had set his royal seal.
"Well Nancy, singing . again?"
would the Chance visitor, say as he
stoPped at her door. ,

at this press; tha present year'
the whole of the New.Testiiment and

me a copy of Palgxim's Progress in
Chinese, illustrated with engravings
draws and executed here, and also a
copy of the "Peep' of - Day" in Chi
nese, from the same prem.-
On entering this extensive printing
establishment, I was confronted with
a series of amphitheartree, in the rb...
terior.of each orwhich stood a com
positor ; and I saw- at a glance the
immensity of the work - which every
one who learns to read or speak or
print the Chinese language has to
encounter. Each one of these amphi
theatres was what printers call a
case, containing, not t*enty-six let
ters as in English printing offices,
but more than ids thousand different
characters of - tylwa, and 'with the
combinations that are made, more
than 'thirteen thousand. I do not
ranch wonder that the Chinese ad
here to their old method of, engrav
ing everything in wood that they
pant, for I should be very loath to
attempt to hunt up many letters or -
words- out of the sax s thonsand boxes
. that . I saw before me. And yet this
mode of printing is a great improve
ment on the Old.

The earnest and zealous advocate

exclaim, " We are brave"

There is many a man and many a
woman who is breaking God's laws
in nature, and breaking them in soci
ety, and breaking them in social re
lations, by an unwitting exhaustion
through excessive activity. As "long
as people say, "I cannot help it,".
they will not help it. I have expost-
ulated with men on the .subject of -
such an excessive addiction to world
ly toil; and they, said to` me, -"ldy . af
fairs are peculiar, and they are in just
such a state now thtit it is impossible
for any body else to take charge of
them. I must carry them through."
But within a week they are taken
down with 'bilious - fever; and could.
not get off their bed. And yet, their
affairs went right along just the same
as though they had been able to at
tend to them. I have -never seen a
man whose affairs could not get along
when he was sick and could not get
off his bed. The affairs of suelvAt
man may limp, they May creep, but
they will get along. There is one,:
thing that you may be sure ofjlliat—'
you will get through life, -and that
your affairs will get along in one way -
oranother; and Wall the time it is
conceit, as Mitch as it is conscience,
that makes a man say, "I must keep
my hands on the rein, or things will
go so that I shall defraud and injure
those who are connected with me on
every side." • Retrench. Draw in.
Be less, and do less. -Do better, and
be better for doing better. There is
many a man who does not suspect it,
but when he says, "I do not speak
in meetings; I have had no great ex
perience; I do not Wish. -

upon me to pray; I have no gifts in

who tam their hearts, that are just
as full of feeling as anybody else's,
and squeeze them so dry that there

and say, " I have no experience to

should there be! .If you have used it
