- 13tir Legislature having adjourned with
eat any action upon the Usury question,
there is no prospect of any further relief'
ilk another Year to come, hr that direction,
'hence the onlyrentedy we have ie to make l
r itseOfsueli • means_ as are already upon
our statute books, and by otlmintstering
thelaws wow have, much can be done to
throw off - the villainous yoke of the I
merciless extortioners, although they can
escape merited penalties. We have a
Court of Justice, (so called) and it con-_
reties this week. We have a somewhat
stringent usury law, barring out proper
penalties, which was undoubtedly intend-'
ia to protect the people' against the ravages
of these ravenous money ' oyates, and we
here say that it has become the duty of
every citizen to urge and demand ifs ex
eintion. What was it placed r on our
statute books for, if there vas no necessity
for it and of what use is it Unless execut
ed!. Let us try its virtue at this time.
Let the Courts be forced to pass upon
this gadsßon, and aectae
'made for the protection of the rights of
the people, or to furnish means for Legis
lators and Judges to draw salaries. We
cannot say that the people will get their
sights by asking for them, but one thing
ire can sar, they do not deserve them un
less they do ask. The following is the
present law against usury, and we ask a
careful perusal by our readers:
" Where any rate of interest for the loan or
UN of money shall have been Desertal or con-j
trilled for, the borrower or debtor shall not be '
required to pay the creditor the excess over the
legal rate, and it shall be lawful for such bor
rower or debtor at his option, to retain and de
duct such excess from the amount of any such
debt; and in all cases where any borrower or
debtor shall heretofore or hereafter, have colon
;t arily paid the whole debt or sum loaned togeth
with interest exceeding the lawful rate, no
- Act ices to recover back any such excess shall be
sustained in any court of this Commonwealth,
unless the same y shall hare been commenced
within six months from and after the time of
such payment" •
'lt will be plainly seen by the above
provisions that a remedy forthe oppressed
victims is at hand. All that is necessary
is for them to assert their rights and de
mand the interference of the Courts in
their behalf, and not only the victims but
every individual in this county is interested
on removing the blighting curse of these
infamous harpies who infest our streets,
and carry in their own countenances the
evidence of guilt as they sneak to and
from their " barberons shops" and th>
offices of Record, and public indignation
should fasten upon them such a stigma
that a respectable dog will fail to notice
them. Their "publican" prayers that blas
pheme the House of God on the Holy Sab
bath, and stand as a "stumbling block" to
the rising youth in their christian training
should not shield them from a righteous
judgment. The combined indignation of
this community should fall upon them as
they 4 oreli upon the misfortunes of their
fellow men during the week by their
heinous extortions.
These modern "Publicans," in addition
to their doctrine of "no law," but "let us
regulate things," have had their mouths
stretched Wm ear to ear, proclaiming the
to them under duress of circumstances to
rob the indigent of their hard earnings—
Ohl 12(ow sacred such contracts have
.become in-their eyes. They not only rob
their victims and. distrees their wives and
children, hnt'ihelendeavor to. intimidate
- them to prevent a public exposure of their
damnable villainy by the cry that a aeon
tract is spored, you must not go back on
that." How about Jaws? Are-they sacred
or were they enacted for bombastic
flourish A "Dick Turpin," or a "Six
teen String Jack" under this same prin
..cipleof "sacredness of contract" might say
that when he placed his pistol at the head
of the benighted traveler and dernsiaded
oyoor money or your life," and then and
there the victim made a "sacred contract"
a to deliver ; hismoney in preference, that he
should not avail himself of the law to
punish highwaymen and secure hie stolen
*veil, Oh no! It matters not under
what duress of circemstances a contract is
made, or by what law it is forfeited, it
must be held sacred. We believe a contract
made with a highwaymen, who displays
some courage is, mere binding than with
him who takes d'cowardly advantage of
the straitened. circumstances of his neigh
bor. •
Will the people be, frightened by such
infamous bugbears from claiming their
rights under the law ?` We counsel every
man who has not paid tllo usnrydemand
ed to withliold it as tlie law directs, and
alI who have, to not allow the allotted six
nl4lOlOlO pass without instituting pro
ceedings to recover it back "God helps
them who helps themselves."

HONE,—We understand that Governor
Curtin, Minister of the United States at
St Petersburg, has...resigned that position,
and will return to bis haute in Pennsyl
vania within a month or two. This resigna
tion is - not altogether unexpected, and has
a political significance at this time, which
will soon find authoritative expression in,
i k ro
an - important form. The frien of Gov
Curtin have been systematically, scrib
ed. 1.1 tke administration, thrbugh the
controlling influence of Mr. Cameron, not
only in the distribution of patronage, but
in every form of political consideration in
the Republican party. - They are' power-
Jul enough to make their strength felt in
the Presidential canvass, and hare all the
tlisposition to redress past grieva4aces.--
The Legislatare adjourned at neon oti
Thariday, the 4th i6stant.
"Independent' , Nentrnlh.
We have three of the most " indepen
den t " neutral papers in . Susquehanna '
county that can be found in: any restless
of the common wealth of Pennsylvan
perhaps we may say in the Union: We
hare one styledthe "Independent" Repub:
lictin, at Montrose, which seems to be very
dependent on "Rings" and "cliques," and
"independent" of saying any thing in favor
of, the flagrant abuse of their power for
fear-of injuring "our' party at Washing
ton," and neutral on, all subjects of vital
importance to the local - welfare of, the
county, unless forced by circumstances to
say "Amen.",. -We ban two others, the
Northern Per and. the Risque
henna Journal that are "independent" of
saying one word that can be construed as
Conserving -to promote true Democratic
principles, and very dependent for their
local support upon Democrats, which is
the grand sequel to thOir bottled-up Rad
icalism, which usually, however, is uncork=
ed a little just before every election.
We do not refer to this subject out of
any "malice prepense or aforethought,"
but from pure motives of sympathy, and
we ask the indulgence of a generous pub
lic, for any man or set of men who are af
fected with such cowardly fear are more
the objects of pity than of censure. We
are Illaukfa 0,A4 Um 'Junk* io otoo con
tagious or infectious, but merely a con
stitutional deformity, or the DEMOCRAT
might be "taken down" with it..
If we "come down," the people of this
county must be pretty well assured by this
time, it dill be from some other cause.—
We are fighting for no Ring or Clique,
nor for the agrandizement of ourself or
any particular individuals, neither shall
we conserve our opinions to suit the fancy
of any man or set of men nor allow our
gun to be spiked by their asperity, but on
all subjects.of local as well as national in
terest we shall level. our battery at injus
tice and corruption; and whether,, Repub
licans or Democrats be within its range
they must -beat a retreat or take the
Local Option Law.
As the saying is, and which. maybe car
reelly applied in this case, a Radical Legis
lature has "been and gone and done it" on
the temperance question, iri the passage of
a local option humbug, in attaching to
the bill a most flagrant monopoly and
whisky life preserver in a very covert man
ner by the following provisions:
"Provided that nothing contained in the
provisions of this act shall prevent the
issuing of licenses to druggists for the
sale of liqntirs for medical and manufac
turing purposes."
This islocal option with a vengeance.—
It makes it merely "optional" with the
people whethertthey will vote the sale of
liquor into the bands of alew men to sell
it by the pint and jngfull or allow equal
rights in this matter. Will some one in
terested show us the benefits of prohibi
tion "on that line ?" We think it will
take all summer." What an immense
amount of "mechanical" work will be
done, s snch as raising barns, etc., and how
wonderfully prevalent the cholera-morbus
and. other colic affictions will be when
such a monopoly exists ? If the sale and
manufacture of liquor is a sin and a curse
it is as much so in the hands a druggists
as in the bawls of landlords. It appears
very much to us as if the framers and en
acters of this lace' bad a good large bottle
of French brandy in their coat-tail pockets
to "wet their whistles," presented them by
some druggist, when they filled the balls
of our Capitol with their fumigations of
Radical temperance. Our faith in tem,
perance politicians was very much tried in
this county last fall, but our faith in tem
perance legislators is "clean gone" now by
this specimen of their "labor."

The Journal of Chnunerce incemment
lug on the new born zeal of the adminis
tration in prosecuting the parties charged
with being engaged in whisky frauds,
says: "This is a late day to attempt the
recovery of the many millions "of dollars
alleged to have been unlawfully withheld
from the government when: the whisky
tax Was two dollars a gallon; Years have
elapsed since the frauds were perpetrated,
Some of the offenders and .witnesses
dead or out of the conntryv - Aioofs and
records have been torn up or otherwise
have mysteriously disapplared. The gov
ernment thus puts itself in a most-dis
advantageous position, if the move it is
now making is sincere and earnest. While
we warmly approve of every effort, at
however late a date, to vindicate the laws,
we cannot refrain from asking why all
'this was not undertaken before. 'Rumors
of whisky frauds were in all inen's months
four and five years ago. Some distillers
and some government officials were cur
rently reported to have made fortunes by
cheating or coniving at Ifrauds. The
same administration agentOrho now ex
hibit such bustling energy in proceeding
against the ancient whisky ring, or what
is left of it, have been in office ever since
President Grant took his seat. It would
be far better for the cause of justice and
the interests of the treasuryhad this novel
exhibition- of zeal been of much older
origin. The effect of its display now is
only to arouse suspicion :that political
motives have something to, do with the
demonstration. There is an inordinate
amount of thunder, but little lightning.
The government agents woUld have seem
ed to be more in earnest had they kept
back from the administration organs those
long details of secret operations and find
ing. of grand jury indicliments, which,
being printed only serve to put guilty dis
tillers on their guard and defeat the ends
of justice. It would havOv-looked more
like genuine businega had; publicity not
been sought for these facts before the first
arrest had been made. Men belonging to
the republican liberal wing declare that
the whole thing is a trick to call off at
tention from the custom house fronds, of
the present add set simple-minded peo
ple to thinking only of the old whisky
swindles of President Johnson's day, and
that the government does not expect to
recover a dollar or care abOut convicting
anybody, but look for a decided enhance
ment of political capital for the campaign.
We have no evidence before us to sustain
these opinions, the product, it may be, of
faction feeling and prejudice. The future
will show what the government is really.
after, and by that will we judge it. If
the whisky delinquents, or any of them,
are diligently prosecuted and 'money re
covered, then we shall see:that the gov
ernment is not April-fooling the public.
But while it is doing that! good work it
shoild by no means omWto deal out re
tribution on the custom house and other
official swindlers pow going scot free.
Even as a petty questions of political
policy—if such a Consideration must have
weight—we believe that the administra
tion would stand much better before the
country if it would carryi the war right
intolhe ranks of its friends. It might
lose a few votes by the act, but it would
give the lie to those statements current in
the opposition press, whiCh attribute to
the President an undue desire to shield
his apilointees to office, and would , make
new friends. Too mach delay will render
conviction difficult in that class of frauds,
as we fear it will in those of the whisky
