MR. EDrrog: You have failed to
notice 'in the ;Baron= that a wonthirfal
bridge twelve feet high has lately been erected
over the waters of the canal at the
field railroad station. The inhabitants of north
eastern 'Bradford have no more to cross the
canal on a common swing bridge to reach the
depot, as at •some other stations. They only
have to ascend a flight of fourteen steps with
their freight to reach the top iof the bridge,
.therourn to the left and decerid the same
distance to the platform of the station. This
bridge is wide enough to take over a good
sized trunk, if carried endways. In going up
the steps it needs a man at each end of it.
Great:ermlit is doe to to officers and workmen
for this wonderful - structure. We n•ouli ad 7
vise them to get it patented, so that they and
their heirs may enjoy the bemitit of this great
ev( htion, as it will undoubtedly be used of all
stations that are situated between a river and
vanal. Snell a bridge is a great help to dizzy
headed persola tO look off into the water or on
the train us it passes. We would recommend
as a further improvement that it be boarded
en the sides, se that if a barrel of apples or
pototoes tie spilled in getting them over the
bridge, they a old nut r.ll into the canal and
be lost.

Much of the work of the past will be lost, if

; As our growing Uni
versity- continue S to attract much attention
ithronghont the comitey, and is many of my
friends on learning that I:fioposcd coming
here, expressed a wish that r - wonld let them
know what Cornell University was doing. I
thought it might Le better and easier (lone by
asking you for a little space in the REPORTER
than by (,citing numerous letters to itillividn
als. Hoping my communication will be favor
ably received, I send it to you for the satisfac
tion of my home friends in eastern, Bradford,
(Orwell) as well as others in our County whom
it will interest.
First, what "Cornell" is. By this Ido not
mean what the University is to be—that is
much better expressed by The University Reg
ister than I could hope to do—but the state of
development which it has already and actually
reached. Many persons suppose that because
students are received and studies pursued that
Cornell Must be a finished institotion. Noth 7
ing could be wider of the mark. Any one who
comes hero will , see unfinished buildings; un
graded lawns, Sc., in place of the completed
buildings, and beautiful stretch of meadow
shown in the views of the University to be. Im
mense piles of stones and lumber iri various
deems of preparation cover the space around
the buildings. Professors, students, carpen
ters. masons and laborers are indiscriminately
mixed, and the Premises are covered with the
usual debris of construction. The 3leemtw
building is nearly ready for the roof, excepting
the high campanile, which is to contain the
chimes. The contractors intend to finish the
exterior of the building, I believe,before win
ter. Ground was broken last week for the
foundations of the SIMI= building—a recent
gift from lion. Maus Sonar; of Rochester. It
is to be of stone, one hundred ) by fifty feet,
designed to contain' , the departments of Civil
Engineering and Mechanic Arts. It is hoped
that the minionr3 of thialiulding may be com
pleted:during the year: When these buildings
are completed.the University can boast of six
truly magnificent edifices, all of stone with
the exception of the Chemical Labratory, which
is of wood. But let no one suppose that tbis
incornplcOia interferes in the least with Uni
versity exercises. Everything mecca on in the
most perfect manner and with clock-like pre,-
'cision. Work in all departments is going rap
idly forward. ,Finnt the very magnitude of the
enterprise it is simply imimsible that it should
be completed in, three, or evsn ten years.
Several changts have been made in l'rofes
, sore since last term. Six likve resigned and
others taken their places. Certain enemies
have made this the, excuse for sland&ons at
tacks against the unanimity of faculty. I have
only to efer all persons to the °wadi Era,
in 'which is explained the rcrsions why each
'professor resigned, all piaceable ones.
Militiry drill commenced some days since.
All not especially excused, are required to par
ticipate. Drilling takes place on Monday,

wearing "plug hats," although warned by the
" Sophs" that:it would not, do. Thereupon a
hat was tikes from the _heed of one of our
number, and cut into trophies to be worn as
mementos of sophomore valor. .
Next, 74 held a Meeting to organize. The
building wra surrounded by '73, windows bro

As soon is the meeting broke up 73 made a
rush on the FresbriMa M the street. It was

cause certain gentlemen with a star on their
coats volunteered to keeit the peace. The
next day the classes engaged again near the

to get before the Faculty on account of these

Yours truly,
Ithaca, N.Y., Sept. 26,70,
MnEnrron: I-flhink - it
..isAno, in
honor of the Ulster Division Sons of Temper
ance, and to the friends. of the temperance
cause universally, to make a brief statement in'
reference to the progress of the good work in
this focally. This ~d iviaion- was organized in
December, 1869, with about twelve followers.
Since that time its membership has fluctuated
something as the Wall street gold standard
used to, brit now, it is More 'settled, and boasts
of- over seventy-fiVe membars. Here, as in.
other communities, old BACHE% has enlisted
in his • licentious ranks --:that wear upon the
ends of their noses his inevitable emblematic
blosioms—too many 'Amu citizens. And to the
credit of the "Sons" be it remembered, that
they are indefatigably working, andwith cheer-_
ing success, to get all the half-bloomed noses
to desert the old mischief-maket and affiliate
with the more temperate if not more respecta
ble. And as a cure for the dead-ripe cherry
red and full-bloomed noses, they, have pre
scribed a dose--of which if enough can be pro
cured—that must prove sure. That prescrip
tion is chiefly this : No spirituous, vinous, malt
or brewed liquors 'shall - be manufactured or
sold within the limits of Ulster township, under
a penalty of 1200.
On the 27th ult., on short notice, a largo
number of the division assembled at the hall,
(by the way we hare a juvenile temperance
division here, and many of its members were
present, tdo), cloned regalias, forfited a long
procession, firing flags, banners, streamers and
mottoes to the breeze, and proceeded by the
memorable Ulster Brass Band—marched thro'
Maim and Smithfield streets to DleCAirry's
grove, where we listened to temperance senti
ments of the most pure, prolific and uncontro
vertable kind, from the honorable and able
lips of Rev. 0, L. Unison, of Towanda, and Rev.
T. WeAvkut, of Ulster..
Why, I think the most skeptical, on the
questions of temperance, would work his own
reformation, in spite of himself, and in lcss
than ten minutes, if he dare, silently and stead
ily gaze into the eyes of either of those gen
tlemen for so long a time.
Next on the programme was to read a peti
tion to he sent to the Legislature of Pennsylva ,
nia as soon as signed by a sufficient nuntber
of voters, asking an art embodying the pre
scription before mentidned. 'Atter many signa
tures had' obtaitied the- procession was
again termed, marched back to to the hall, and
with appropriate ceremonies dismissed.
_Now, parents of Ulster township, the fines;
tion is, do yon, or do you not want whisky,
within your borders? • If you. would do some-,
thing for your children, help to enact a law
that will protect them when you are gone.

TEMEE litioAintm—At 'this season
of the year, when every intelligent family is.
considering the question, 'Which is the best pe
riodical for us to take? the following just and
able review of the magazineA.ld i by the editor
of the New York Erening Mail, Will be read with
great intereid
The recent announcement of the intended
absorbtion of Putnam's dllayazine in a new peri
odical, tube called `crihit ei s Monthly, makes it
proper to say something. about some of the
present aspects .sf our magatiae literature.
The oldest,and on the whole perhaps the best,ef
our monthlies has net been affected by the ap
pearance of Vigorous competitors for popular
favor. llMper's bad a constituency of . unpre
oodent extent before the Atlantic or GoDiry
was thought of, and it has each year enlarged
the number of its readers. Its greativariety of
contents is made possible by its large amount
of reading matter, but there has been unusual
taste and knowledge of the' popular wants in
making up this variety, while the wealth of il
lustrations has given to /framer's am advantage
peculiarly ita own.
The Atlantic has made a history of which its
founders may well feel preen!. It has given us
some of the finest specimens extant of scholar
ship, originality. rhetoric, logic, arid humor of
the school of literary men chose headquarters,
may be located either in Boston 'or in 'Cam
bridge, indifferently. It has grappled with Ih--
hives:men iu politics and social philosophy with
vigor - and earnestness, and has contributed the
best thought in New England toward their 'so
lution. Such a galaxy of contributors as have,.
first and last, given their intellectual offerings
to the Atlantic have seldom been gathered in
support of any magazine. Emerson, Holmes,
•Lowell, Mrs. Stowe, Motley, Longfellow, Ages
viiz, Thoreau, hawthorn°, Barton, and a score
of others whose names aro known on both sides
of the Atlantio,-are among the long list. Many,
of those - whose 'contributions first gave its pe
culiar character to 'the Atlantic have latterly
written little, or, not at all, for the magazine,
but It is old features remain unchanged to an
extent greater than might have been expected.
-Since the Atlantic reached its highest fanie„ a
new and.vigorous rival, an occupant of a similar
field, has made itrappearauce, and grown with
a Moldiness and rapidity which have been real
ly remarkable. Wei:neon, of course, the Gat
axe. In the good sense of the World it has
shown more of the spirit and enterprise of
"Young America" than any other of the
monthlies. It has refused the aid of the old
• and well-known writers, but it has never Leann
ted to give its imprint to articles of originality
and merit from those who had to make their
reputation through the Galitry. It violated all
the old magazine precedents by publishing the
names of contributors, thereby offering fresh
incentives to young writers and enlarging its
list of " avalilable" articles by absolving itself
froth full responsibilit. The reform which it
thus began its contemporaries have been forced,
one by one, to adopt inpue way or another.
Its editors have also shown their, enterprise
in procuring articles on fresh and timely topics.
The 6 7 i/tory has thus had something of the
fresh and lively interest of the newspaper. Late:-
ly it has brought about the discuanimr of im
•portant historical and, political questious by
men of high oftleial standing, and thus, in an
other wny, enlarged its interest. Such contri
butions as those lately furnished by Mr. Thor
low Weed, ex-Secretary Welles, ex-Attorney-
General Black, and ex-Postmaster-General
liing,'have been striking and valuable novelties
in our magazine literature ; while such articles
as those of Justin McCarthy on foreign politics
and notabilities have been equally interesting
and instructive.
We did not intend to devote so' much. space
to the Galaxy, but its vigor, its enterprise, its
full and seholarly editorial depaxtment its ,lib
erality to contributors, and its newand itaraira
ble features hail) compelled us to maim this
now well understood that Judicious and exten
sive advertising is essential to success in all
kinds of.busieess, with. scarcely an e'sception.
Even those who have been largest engaged and
whose bnsiness is most generally known to the
pubhc, acknowledge this to be the case by in:
creasing instead of diminishing the amount of
their advertising. The N. Y. :totrrnal of Com
merce, in speaking of one of the oldest and
most successful, banking institntions in the city
as attributing its continued prosperity to this
cause, says:
"Any one would suppose that such a bank,
so long established and so widely known, raiklit
-•dl its bills_aud drafts ; and obtain collections
nongh to satisfy any reasonable ambition with=
ont ~.dollar of outlay for advertising. And so
it might be said of Messrs. BROWN Bros.& CO.,
I)VNC.III,. kiIIEILMAN & Co., and other leading
bankers, whose advertisements appear all the
year In our coinnins. Messrs. A. T. SIEWART.t
Ca, who are more extensively known. than any
other house on this continent, pay us more
money for advertising their brainless than any
of their would-be rivals.. U a house-is not well
known it 'should beechno so by liberal -advertis
ing; and the better It becomes known and the
larger its business, and the more independent
it would seem to be, the better still does it pay
to advertise it.. Advertising is not only a
Fearls of success, but it is at. once the evidence
. m it, and a guaranty 61 its continuance. Many
ble houses data the decadence of their. trade,
from the shapes:ton of advertising." . • . 4(
The BaltimoreWfus adds "If this is true of

M. The course pursued by the
Cascade Mills, of selling.good flour at the low- .
est possible prices, is productive of numerous
advantages. It makes a ready market for the
superior wheat of our vicinity; supplies con,
sinners with a cheap and wholesome article of
fresh ground flour, and as a natural result makes
active business for the Mills. War in Europe,
drouth, and short crops, are having the effect
to raise prices ; but this Mill at all times sell
