A LITEUARY erritiosrm—The follow
ing rather curious piece rof composition
was recently placed upon the black board
at a teachers' institute, and a prise of a
Webster's Dictionary offered to any per
son who could mad it and pronounce
every word correctly. The book was not
carried off, however, as twelve was, the
lowest number of mistakes in prommcia.
Lion made :
"A sacrilegious son of Beliat, who suf
fered from bronchitis, having exhausted
his finances, in order to make good the
deficit, resolved to ally himself to a come
ly. lenient and docile young lady of the
Malay or Caucasian race. He according
ly purchased a calliope and a coral neck- .
lace of a chameleon hue, and securing a
suite of rooms at a principal hotel, he en
gaged the head-waiter as his coadjutor.
He then dispatched a letter of the most
unexceptional caligraphy extant, inviting
the young lady to a matinee. She revolt
ed at the idea, refused to consider herself
sacrificable to his desire; and sent a po- .
lite note of refusal, on receiving which he
procured a carbine and bowie .knife, said
that he would not now forge fetters hy
meneal with the queen, went to an isolat
ed spot. severed his jugular vein, and dis
charged the contents of his carbine into
his abdomen. The' debris was removed
by the money." '
The mistakes in pronunciation were
made on the following words : Sacrile
gious, Belial, bronchitis, exhausted,
finances, deficit, comely, lenient, docile,
Malay, calliope, chameleon, suite, coadju
tor, caligraphy, matinee, sacrificable. car
bine, hymeneal, isolated, jugular and de

" t he
.outside world have strange no
tions about the, privileges of 'the:press.
They see journalists going here and there
without paying their way; they find thenkl
in favored seats at"the play, the public
meeting anti the grand dinner; and s)
they look upon editors as a pecuiarly fa 7
cored class, constantly receiving compli
ments and benefits for which • they return
nothing. Let us say, at once, that this
is a grave error. There is not in journal
ism a legitirnate worker who does not, in
service of solid value, pay twice, five, nay,
ten times over for every favor he receives.
And these conditions between journalism
and the people are not likely to be chang
'Yet the outside barbarian thinks all
newspaper men deadheads, and envies,
them the tine times they have in the way
of free dinners and free tickets to all
manner of shbws. There never was a
greater mistake. People do nut seem to
realize that, on the part of the journalist,-
it is merely a matter of business; that the
or reporter goes to these places; so
attractive to the outsider, much as the
horse goes to the plow—because: he must
do so. We venture to say that four-fifths
of these free entertainments arc to jour
nalists intolerable bores. But the press
touching- the public is tire monumental
deadhead, and the press is the victim Of
the public's rapacious and unceasing de
mand for services without pay. Let us
have the bout on the right leg."
Br:rot:TEß: On Monday, Jan. 29, Perkins
Post, 202, G. A. R., Were. called upon to
perform the funeral rites over the remains
of their late comrade, Joutt TALLADY,
who departed tLis life on Saturday, the.
tiGth ult. The funeral services were held
in the Baptist Church, and the sermon
preached by Rey. .Mr. PEci:, pastor of
the Universalist Church, of this place.
The Grand-Army assembled at their hall
at 10 o'clock, and at .1:50 formed in line
mid procee:cd to the late quarters of de
ceitsed. headed by the Athens Cornet
Band; from thence to the Baptist church;
thence to the cemetery, with arms revers- -
ed. colors draped in mourning, and the
band playing dirges. After the services
of the Post were performed at the grave,
the fasewell shot was fired over the re
mains of the soldier, when the line of
march was again resumed tO the late
quarters of deceased; thence to the
the band playing lively airs. After arriv
ing at the Hail, a short session was held,
and the Post dismissed. This wa's a tho-
ronghly military funeral, fully in accord
ance with the Army Regniations, and
probably the first ever witnessed in Ath
ens. The church was tilled to its utmost
capacity, and the procesgion the largest
that we have witnessed for a long time,
in this pla.:e. Jolts TAhhAnv was one of
.Bradford county's best soldiers, well
worthy the honors, so well perform d by
his surviving comrades, .over his remains.
Commander C. T. llrt.r. delivered the
:following'address on the occasion : .

charged therefrom on the 20th day of

of his term of enlistment. Thus we find
by the military records that he was a true I
soldier, carrying out his ple - dges

which he enlistO, and so the nation has
recol(Ld him as one,~of its faithful de -1
fendyrs in its great tune of need, and his
name is inscril:A-i on that immortal "roll

Ulu national life and integrity as of more

"Mr. trrirts was bete lath 21, 1818,
in Delaware hounty, in the State of New
York. Wlsen about eight years old, with
his parents, he moved. to Bethany, then
the county seat of Wayne , county, Pa.
He made the beat improvement of the
limited opportunities of that place, at
that time, for obtaining learning. Ile
studied Latin and Greek under the in
structions of Rev. ALEX. CAMPBELL, at
Bethany, and the Natural Sciences under
Dr. STrueso, with such other aide as that
small town afforded. When about eigh
teen years of age, he commenced the
study of law, in the lace of the late
EARL WHEELER, at Bethany. About the
time of the removal of the county seat to
Honesdale, he 'came to Montrose, and
completed - his legal studies with • the late
B. T . CASE, Esq. • Ho was admitted to
the Bar of Susquehanna county, on the
22d day of November; 1830,. having pass-
ed an excellent examination. - He then
entered upon the practice of the law with
encouraging success. On the 24th day of
April, 1840, he was married to Miss PITILA
ANN Posr, daughter of DAVID POST,
Esq., of Montrose. She, two sons and
one daughter survive him.
"Mr. LITTLE was endowed by nature
with superior intellect and a high ordei
el talent, and by the practice of strictly
moral and temperate habits and untiring
and 'persevering industry as
a student, be became an able advocate at

he deemed right in law, politics or any- .
thing else, ho had the undaunted courage
to stand up and advocate, or defend, re
gardless of denunciation or ...opposition

with worldly competence.
• "During the first years of his manhood
he acted with the so-called Liberty party;
when that party failed to place a t cket in
the field, he generally voted with . the
Democratic party; and during the last
fifteen years lie has been an active laborer
in - the cause of Democracy, and identified
as a - prominent and leading member of
the Democratic party; not as an .office
seeker, but from hottest principle, for the
good Of the people, and the prosperity
and honor of the counties constituted a
Congressional District, and at the time
that tEoltni: W. WOODWARD was first
the Ddmocratic candidate for member o:
Congress, Itat.Pit B. LITTLE received the
nomination for Congress by - the Demo
cratic convention of Susquehannacounty.
At the recent election for President Judge
in this District, he was tendered the nom
ination as the Democratic candidate, and
accepted the same, receiving a very com
plimentary vote.
"Formerly, during many years, Mr.
LITTLE was a worthy and exemplary
member of, the Baptist church. During
the last few years, he has been a proud
vent, efficient and leading member of the
Methodist Church in this town. To this
Society the, loss is great.
" The funeral was-attended Jan. 29, in
the 31. E. (loud? edifice. That large
house was filled vqtli people, and many
persons were unable to obtain admission.

-CI AT lON. - Looking over and carefully
- comparing and analyzing the work of our
Society, we find that.this, the busy Cen
tennial year, is not behind the last three
of our organization in.good, earnest en
deavors to relieve the sick and poor.
Many of us have stood for the titst time
by the side of abject poverty and the neg
lected sick, - tind in heart have been
strengthened to better purpoSe and zeal
in this part of Gon's vinyard.
Gootl and blessed lessons have been
taught tzs, how it, watch and wait for the
coming of the Loan by the sickness and
death of motherand-daugher, whose tem
poral wants it was our privilege to relieve
dnring the latter part of their lives, and
for whom bUrial careful and tender
provision was 'Made. Surely " Messed
arc the dead who die in the Loup:"
In all eireetions we can sfe the growing
improvement iu the Workers—we know
bate' how to visit,distressed homes, and
the task no less, is bocoming easier, be
cause gratitude is such a sweet reward
for kindly pets, and we are learning the
truth of those Gospel words so often spo
ken with little,meanin that "It is more
blessed to give than to receive."
Our Community is still botintifut in good
will toward us, as our reports- will show.
Among the individual good deeds extend
.eel, as we are -glad to acknowledge the
drawing up of our Constitution and
Laws in proper form by_ Mr.' - ; H. M.
WELmis, to whom we extend our thanks,
and also for the nice framing of saran by
Mr. IFutrro3tit. '
It has never been our lot to work with
any society in Which the general good
management was to truly praised as iu
this; aid the universal good feeling, exist
ing; between officers and members is so
marked, that it seems almost like insult
to comment nn it. Old and young alike
working with cheerful deference and each
ambitious . to do his Part.
The silent, thoughtful, and sometimes
tearful attention given to the reports of
the visiting Committee has often impress
ed us, and though perhaps We are oftener
sobered by these meetings, than joyed,
yet we all feel the cause a blessed institu
ti,an, and ow which commands the great
est consideration and respect toward the
instigators from whom we have learned
to look forward with interest to this work.
The generous "Thanksgiving" gifts
speak the good wishes of the public, while
individual donations from all parts of the
torn :•re constantly coming to our relict,
and we feel like adding in bennediction
the prayer which so often comes to our
ears, " May COD add His blessing and
His name shall be praised. Respectfully,

rr•nr rsu elsewhere an account of
`the IlefalCations of Mr. LESHEISI, Cashier
of the First National Bank of Montrose.
Mr. L. was atone time a toekholder and
director in the Citizens' National, of this
place, but disposed of his stock some time
since. His irregularities de not affect in
the least the bank here. The young man
held a prominent position, both socially
and financially, in tiusquehauna comity,
and the discovery.of his evil deeds was a
complete. surprise to every one. ills
transactions had been entirely concealed
from his father and other intimate
friends. The mania for stock gambling
and the desire for great wealth. undoubt
edly proved too great temptatitn.s to the
young man.
