A Word to our rrlefids.
With this number doses volume XXVII
of the Montrose DEUOCIUT, and also the
first fall volume during our connection
with it, as editor and proprietor, and bc
fare the issue of another paper the old
year of 1870 will have been severed by the
scythe of Time ; and with all its joys and
sorrows, successes and failures, will be
garnered among the many ripened sheaves
of the past.
While we would pronounce the caste
mart' benediction, of wishing you all a
"Happy New Year," we cannot hope to
reap more happiness in the year to come,
Gibe crowned with greater success, than
has attended our every effort during the
eventful year that is just passing, except
by improving on its lessons.
Themany old years that are passed are
to ns of vast import, as they have been
furnishing us with beacon lights for our i
future life voyage, that, if heeded, will en-
able us to steer our bark or happiness en
tirely Clear from the wrecking shoals up
on which too many times it has been
stranded:;: and whether it be a happy or
a sorrowritl year will depend wholly upon
ourselves,in cultivating the proper desires
and oimumscribing them with manly and
virtuous notions. It is our privilege to
gpaff the fullest draughts of human hap
pisiessitwe wilt, and the Present is the
only time tcr secure it, as neither the Past
or Future is with us.
Before entering upon another volume,
we deem it a fit time,= to, express our
thanks and due appreciation of the many
kind words, complimentary expressions,
and the generous patronage which we hare
received at the hands of our friends. It is
now about seventeen months since we
placed our name at the head of the edit
orial columns of the DEMOCRAT, and dur
ing that time our most sanguine hopes
have been more than realized, as our sob
ecription list has nearly doubled, and job
work and other patronage largely in
creased ; and with our highest hopes for
the year to come, we cannot expeet great
er mast
We have labored under the disathanta,
ges of inexperience, brit onr generous pat
rons have winked at our imperfections,
and scanned only our marked improve
ments ; and we are proud to be able to
announce that we have met their univer
sal approbation, and many thanks are due
them for their kind words, fitly spoken.
Our paper ever has, and so long as our
name stands at the mast head ever will
contain our moral and political princi
ples, frankly and fearlessly expressed,
tempered with candor and our best judg
ment, and will ever strive for the suprem
acy of Del:doer:ale principles, nport , the
sole belief and unavoidable- co n is'itton
that it was upon those prineiplenibit this

to 'monopolise, or advise any one to trans

reached by our paper and in the immedi
ate vicinity where trade must come from,
is of as much importance as 1,500 by any
other journal.
Three hundred families who receive
our paper at Montrose P. 0. are import
ant customers to the business men of this
borough, as they
.are the parties from
whom they receive rapport. The same
may be said of every borough in the
tionnth and these are (most of them) fam
ilies that are not 'reached by any other
county paper.
Businesi men of this county do not re
ceive their patronage from Lucerne,
Wayne, or Bradford, hence a circulation
in those counties is of no importance to
them. If large circulation alone is im
portant in local advertising, the World or
Tranne would meet the end.
We present these facts fur the consider

and we ask all our friends to assist us by
'helping to increase its circulation. With
many thanks for well timed favors, we
hope to wish you all increased happiness
in many years yet to come.

Below we copy from the Clearfield Re
publican an exellent review of the recent
Speech of the Hon. Willian A. Wallace, in
Philadelphia, on the apportionment. Al
though the special election which =ldled
forth the speech of Mr.-Wallace has result
ed in a splended victory to the democrats,
the suggestions of the Republican in re
gard to reform of the conititntion are
timely and fitting, and we,tberefore,invite
the attention of the reader to them:
"We print this week the speech of Sen
ator Wallace, delivered on Monday evening
12th inst.. in Philadelphia, to the people
of the first senatoral district. It is an ex
haustive argument, upon the canvass in
that district, and of the need of energetic
action to elect Colonel Dechert to the sen
ate. No more powerful reason can be
given why the democracy should carry
that district than the facts and the figures
given in this speech. Tbey hove everyth
inp to gain in so doing, and we justly add,
nothing to lose. With the legislature and
the governor against us, we will have a
repetition of the infamy of 1.864 and of
the practical result shown by the figures
of this speech. In a word,disfranebisetuent
and outrage for us, and double representa
tion for radicalism. With success in that
election, we have the senate and will con
trol its organization, and be able to com
mand a Fair bill and an honest apportion
ment of the state. So, too, in regard to
a constitutiopal convention, with one
branch of the legislature we will have
our fasr proportion of the delegates and
our just share of representation therein.
That reform in many matters of state
government is imperatively necessary,
can scarcely be controverted; the election
of state treasuror by the people; the re
lief of an overburdened Supreme bench;
a check to special legislation by some
such provision us Senator Wallace offer
! ed in his amendment offered in the senate
I last session; the necessity to check the
abuses and corruption always accompany
ing the election of a United States sena
! tor, as well asstliese surrounding the at
mosphere of every bill affecting large in
terests, are each of them matters of grave
moment and, in our judgment demand
the calm consideration that should be
given them by a convention
composed of each shade of political sent.
went. It will not do for the democracy
longer to halt and drawback from the
advocacy of reforms the •necessity for
which is self-evident. We must be in the
ran of healthy progress,'not lagging in
the train of ill-digested radical reform.
We must recognise existing evils and, ap
ply the remedy. We must be true to the
past and ready to guide the events of the
future._ ./hlung 'no RIM. backward, We
must appreciate at the full worth the
evidences of disruption and disintegration
shown by our antagonists and culminating
policy upon the questions of the present
and immediate future,from, the great
doctrine that "that people is best govern
ed which is least governed" and re-enun
ciating the great bud marks of our time
honored principles, wean move forward
a harmonious and united party, whose
ranks will be swollen at every step by the
' accession of thousands of our recent foes.
We are not the party of antiquated dogmas
or conservative retrogression, nor are we
the party of of ideal;" and ex
perimental "God and morality" reforms,
but we are the party of healthful progress,
in the light of established facts, in the
channel of the rights of the people, and
ander the ssfe guidance of the cardinal
doctrines of free government, ever our
pride and our boast. Can such an organ,-

member of ,it recognizes the truth of. the
chargesaf iniquitous special legislation;
of the sale and barter of seats in high
places, and of conuption in legislative
halls by those who govern . us, and shallit
hesitate to apply the remedy ? With suc

position '0 mom with power; without it,

A Stsrprbare,7 Romance.
Many years ago, a man in Hartsville,
became attached to a young, and
a beautiful damsel, who (lied before
their intended marriage could be consum
mated_ He then married the mother of
the deceased, who was some twenty years
his senior, but with whom he lived quite
happily until she was eighty and he was
sixty years of age. As the wife had by
this time become decrepit they adopted a
maid of some thirty summers, who had
lived with them a year and a half when
the old lady died.
gefin*AllPtitne appointed for the fu
neral, thic,,durli himself was takan sick, on
which account the funeial services were
potponed for four weeks. °But in less
than two weeks he sent fora justice of the
peace and was married to the maid he had
adopted. The next day the couple applied
to the town for support. and a week later
the man himself died, his funeral being
attended before that of his wife, and the
woman he had so recently married being
the only mourner. Human folly is "vast
and illimitable."
Have you enemies? Go straight on and
mind them not, If they block up your
path walk around them. and do your du
ty regardless of their spite. A man who
has got no enemies is seldem good for
anything—he is made of that kind of ma
terial so easily worked that every
one has his hand in it, A sterling char
acter, one who .thinks for himself, and
speaks what he thinks; is-always sure -to
have enemies. They are as necessary to
him as fresh air; they keep him alive and
active. A celebrated character' who was
surrounded with enerniesmsed the remark,
"They are sparks which, if you do not
blow, will gr, out themselves." Let this
be your feeling while endeavoring to live
down the scandal of those who are bitter
against you. If you stop to dispute, you
do as they brit desire, and open the way
for more abuse. Let the poor fellow talk;
there will be a reaction, if you perform
your duty, and hundreds who were at
once alienated from you will flock to you
and acknowledge their error.
Important to Landlords.
As this is the time of the year when
landlords are thinking of. sending notices
to their tenants; it will be well to remem
ber that Judge Pearson, of Harrisburg,
has recently decided that a landlord no
tice to a tenant- forpossession of property
is not legalif dated on theletofJanuary.
It must be dates:l'lot later than the 31st
of December:
—Another terrible calamity, caused by
an attempt to kindle a fire by the use of
kerosene oil, comes from Baltimore. The
brl who made the attempt had her eyes
urned from their sockets; the face was
torn oft in pitches in several plates, the
hair was burnt from her forehead, and
from her throat to her waist her flesh was
lacerated most feartally. Will not such
a terrThle fate prevent other people trout
folloWing her example ?
