The law giving the proceeds resulting
from fines atid'ibrftitid recognizences to
the LertlAssoCiation havingbeen repeal-,
ed in accoolkie to the willy the people
of this county; it becomes our duty as a
jeuranlist to wateh with jealous care their
sights in -the matter and see that their
official servintii faithfully discharge their
duty - i that :theitaterests of the so called
"commonwealth" are as closely looked
after, and theirclaima se ar / sliduonsly pros
ecuted, as were thestiof therLegal Associa
lean. Much "wind" was used by a few
parties interested, in a puerile attempt to
discourage tie in our onslaught upon their
. nnjustlaw, before its repeal, in claiming
that very little or nothing bad been er
would bo vollected in the interest of the
Cotintyelint that unless- thii fend was to
lie played -into the hands of the attorneys,
the court and the officers in charge would
be remiss in their duty, and that notwith
standing we, had stirred-up the laboring
Leis hi the' hive who bear the burden of
taxation, to, make as unwelcome hum
around their ear's', it would be frind that
they Mauld not accnmulate much honey
in the county hive. Undoubtedly some of
these "philanthropic" gendemen of the
Legal - fraternity, who have suffered such
martyrdom (?) in the interest of the com
monwealth by 'converting the money be
longing to the county Treasury to their ,
private benefitmould be glad to have their
"viten ime"'come to pass, and if they do
not give it their personal aid they may be
willing to see it pi by default. We have
no remedy for the past, but the future i s
before us and we shall attempt to discharge
our duty and leave the balance to the
people and if there is -a "dill Ring Enter
prise": in Susquehanna County Courts,and
among their dependent official servants,
they have a never failing panacea which
they:ein apply by placing the "little joker"
in the ballot box, and when the question
comes squarely before the people, as to
whether they, or Binge, shaft be boss,
late occurrences are somewhat of a dem
castration in their favor. That the peo
ple of this county may know their rights
in this case, and be prepared to demand
the maintenance of them by their official
seriants,we will give an abstract of the law
provided :
It is the duty of the clerk of the court
to certify on oath into the county Com
missioner's office/all fines and forfeited
recognizance/I within ten days after the
expiration of the term of court at which
they uere imposed, and that it is a foil
list of that term. Said list shall give the
number and term of each cam, the names
of the recognizers, and the place of resi.
deuce, and occupation , when known, and
the date of the forfeiture, and a neglect to
comply with this duty is a misdemeanor
in office. Alio, it is the duty of the Sheriff;
clerks of Courts, Justices of the Peace,
and all other officers who receive any fines
for the use of the county, to pay the same
into the County Treasury without un
necessary delay and neglect in them, so to
do, is *misdemeanor.
Thew County Commissioners become the
responsiblMagents for the county, to see
that the terms of the law are complied
and must prosecute all such claims,
either themselves or by their proper attor
ney, who shall receive a reasonable com
pensation, and all - money so received or
collected by them must be , pa.ssed _ upon
by the board of Auditors the same as any
other part ,tif their accounts. The law.
thus plainly points out the way, and it is
the same law for collection that governed
the Legal Association, precisely, except
that the . money shall go into the treasury
instead - of into the library room and the
pockets of: e,attorneys,the last beint i the
only thing that is repealed. We have no
more to say at present, bat "we shall see
whet we shall see."

carA bill has been introduced into
the Legislature of New York declaring the
day for holding the State election a public
holiday. Such a law is now on the statute
books of Wisconsin, and in noticing•that
fact the New York Herald says: '.-The
general adoption of the law of Wisconsin,
in relieving ,the people on election days of
the cares and pressure of their financial
engagements,wordd contribnte immensely
to the purification of the ballot-box in
bringing out responsible citizens to the
polls. Having no excuse fur absenting
themselves, and having on- election day
-nothing else to do_but to take A band in
the election, they would learn at once,
andel' . the law of a public holiday, the
wholesome practice of a duty which has
been too long and too generally neglected
by active business men."
MrThe Golden Age (Radical)• is quite
emphatic in its opposition to Grant, and
says: We have no criticism to make on
the character or motives of the gentlemen
who will convene ut Philadelphia. To say
that the convention will be largely com
posed of Federal office-holders and du*
representatives, will be true, but ought
not to bo opprobrious. Our feeling to
ward President Grant and his partisans is
not at all hostile or bitter. We are of those
who respect him highly. But, looking at
the forces in the field of politics, any man
would be blind not to see that the Presi
dent has ceased to represent the whole
party but only a part of it. The feeling
against Ins renomination is, in some quar
ters, like. the settled repugnance which
was once exhibited toward Andrew John
son. If the Philadelphia Convention shall
persist in nominating him; it will defy the
openly expressed wishes of a large portion
of the orignal voters who first called him
to his high office, and will eventually di

DEAR KEvsioxE: At. a regular as

March 15, we enjoyed one of those hap
py, never-to-be-forgotten
. eßisodes, that - I
think are known and appreciated by
Knights Templar,as by no other organi
zation.; that till ie heart-with happiness
and charity for our fellow-men; and 'per
petuates our love for'each other- and our
Order. We first ht Id an election for offi
cers for the coming Temlar year.
After which the .order of the Red
Cross was conferred on two very worthy
companions. At the close of which Em.
Commander Sir 4. W.Simerell addressed
Past Em. Commander Sir J. H. Dusen

talked of by the officers and Knights, to
add somewhat to our ceremonies, and that
as he had always been consulted with re
gard to all points of order, with his per
mission, Sir Pardee (our Prelate), would
state our proposed innovation. lis per
mission being given, Sir Pardee, in a few
but very appropriate, and touching
marks, reviewed his devotion to our Or
der, his sacrifice of time, business. and
means to the welfare of his brothers, com
panions, and Knights: and said that al
though his hair was nut silvered with the
frosts of many winters, yet we considered
him our father in Mason cry. and conclud
ed his remarks by reading the following
testimonial :
"To Past Eminent Commander, Sir J.

not so much for its intrinsic value, but as
an emblem of some of the must sacred
