Post Royal, Jnne 22. 1872.
Mr. Editor : I see in your paper of last
week an article in regard to the county
printing, and the manner in which the
Commissioners discharged their duty in
regard to it. Little else could be expected.
This whole scheme was conceived in sin
and brought forth in iniqnity, and it
would have been little lees than a mira
cle bad their decision proved satisfactory
This qnestinnsble work will doubtless
result iu good in the end, publishers will be
arraigned before the bar of public opiuiou
and an unanimms demand by the people
issued that the laws passed in relation to
the public priuting, in Juniata county
be repealed t' loto. so that the law- will
stand as it was before the act of 16G7
was passed, or else, as you suggest, that
it be let by contract to the lowest bidder.
This, perhaps, would be better. It
would do away with the jobbing that has
been done through the County Cominis
eioners' office so largely in years gone by.
But there is little hope for reform un
less the people speak out boldly and re
fuse lo support any man for office who
will not pledge himself to use every hon
orable means to- bring about such a re
sult. The people for two years have
asked a repeal of the law of 18C7. In
1870, when it was known that petitions
were circulated asking for its repeal, our
able Senator had the law promptly re
pealed iu the Senate, and quickly notice
thereof was published, so as to blind
those who were active in the matter, an 1
create the impression that it was unne
cessary to further, petition for the pur
pose that it would be done anyway.
But the Reverend member who repre
sented the good people of Juniata county,
not expectiug to be a candidate for re
election, could not see it, and the re
pealing bill did not pass the House. By
what means this was brought about your
readers can judge. I have heard that a
committee of editors went down to see
Again, iu 1S72, a repeal was asked for,
but instead a new bill was substituted
and became a law, and repeali d the act
of 1SC7 in so ftr as it conflicted with it
The act of lS67.was doctored largely.
Two doctors did the work, and it was no
homeopathic job either. They required
the printing to be done in two papers
only, but increased the dose. Had they
confined the law to what is geuerally
understood by Public Printing sueb as
the County Commissioner are required
to have done there might have been
some estui" for them ; but they attempt
ed to include every kind of legal adver
tisements, and attempted to compel the
people to publish in two papers what wa
before only leqnired to be published in
one. This is a direct attempt to control
the public against their will, to patronize
papers and men that they may not
Let the people see to it that this nnjiist
and obnoxious law be at once repealed'
It is a disgrace to the coun'y as well as

Moi.tkb. the great military leador of
Prussia, is reported, on fair authority, to
have sneered at our war of the rebellion
as a mere rabble rout, General Sher
muu, after carefully examining Sabasto
pol, asserted that its capture was far
les difficult than that of Vickaburg. Yet
the combined armies of Creat Britaiu and
France, with all their weali.li of engin
eering skill and military knowledge,
found nearly a full year's work in re
ducing the Russian fortified city The
siege of Vicksburg lasted two months.
This is a military comparison which has
never be fore been made, because no of

two such masters of the military art as

compare notes on their great campaigns,
and give their ideas of the wars which
they have studied at a distance. Phila

Sia Sirs Stab Tavib,
June 22. 1872.
My Dear Mr. Ed'tor:Uow clear,
how cloudless, how calm and quiet the
night is Nothing is. heard but the lazy
croak of tho frog in the warm stream and
stagnant pond, and the chirk of insects
peculiar to midsummer time. 'J he moon
has not yet come up to shimmer her sil
very rays over this part of this sin-cursed
earth. I love such evenings; they fill
our hearts with the most delightful feel
ings, emotions and longings that in many
cases never can be gratified ; but you
know that it U better to feci and long
and never realize, thau mver to feel and
long at all. So with me. Many of my
longings can reach no further than a wish
and a hope, for you know that I am get
ling old aud have passed my bay-day,
and have got into a groove or rut, and
can't get out.
A lovely evening like this awakens
feelings and longings so far different from
tho feelings and emotions that a dark,
tempestuous night start in one's heart
that we almost wonder whether we are
always the same beings, spiritually. We
are told that the body h.iir and nail,
fh?sh, bone aud blood undergoes an en
tire change every seven years. Tell me,
don't we change oftcner than that in our
feelings and longings. If it were not for
Andy Jackson and a few other good men
that were the same thing always, I'd
think that a man can be one thing to day
and another thing to morrow.
Time, circumstances aud weather
change, and, generally speaking, men
change with them. Few are steadfast.
Old Andy was as steadfast to his cause
as is the needle to the pole, but he was
Andy Jackson, jrnn know.
A man vows and weds to-day to
morrow another crosses his path ; deeper
and more material depths are struck
The cords of fidelity that bound him to
his former vows are snapped asunder,
and he is caught up in the whirling vor
tex of his new adoration, and hurried
along to happiness or misery.
But don't get scared, Mr. Editor, I
ain't agoing to caper off into a love story,
though these Saturday nights are just
the time for such tales and actual love
making, for, generally speaking, the mind
is free from the cares of the week ; at
least so it was in my younger days, aud
when Andy lived Neither am 1 agoing
to philosophize on the why and the
wherefore of these whims, fancies and
changes, and try and find the exact cause
that moves them in matters of love In
the first place I ain't a philosopher, and
in the uext place there is the great phil
osopher, Horace Greeley, making such
changes and somersaults so fearfully that
I am commencing to feel a little doubtful
on philosophers, too
Oaoilneaa. racimiB 1 WV11. merey cave
us when such old philosophical chaps as
Horace Greeley are ready to change from
a life long course into a cnurso that he
denounced and fought against and de
clared was wroiir 1 jr i? at that kind
of philosophy. We've lots of such phil
osophy in Greenwood ; so have you in
MifHin. But I won't point out jtW now
I'll do that by and by. I only say
that if Old Andy Jackson who they
ain't agoing to vote for any more in Berks
comity since the Heading Convention
were a living, he'd make the dust and
hair fly out of them fellows that sold us
out and aro a running our party into the
ground so deep that it will be buried too
deep for resurrection
I shiver and my hair stands np when I
eee Old Greeley at the head of our party.
What did he ever do for it ? He bailed
Jeff. Davis, the man that Old Hickory
would have hanged in the petticoat that
he was trying to sneak away in. For
that bailing the rebels feel mighty kind
toward Horace, and it was most blamed
kind, that's so. But that isn't all that
draws them tarnel Southern chaps so
lovingly to Greeley ; not by a long splice.
The cause s'icks a good deal deeper than
that. You know Horace has been
against free trade all his life. He has
preached protection to home labor for
thirty years. Old Hickory was a pro
tectionist, too, but he never showed the
white feather, ife did not change, but
he told Calhoun " If you take the Stale
of South Carolina ont of the Union on
your free trade and State Rights doc
trine, you'll stietch hemp.' How's that
alongside of Greeley, who. after shouting
"Protection" for a generation, changes,
grows tame, wheels, turns his back on
protection and says, " Here, take it into
the States and Congressional districts,
and do with it as you please. Only
make me President, aud I shan't inter
fere a bit I won't say a word. I'll have
no policy on free trade and protection."
I tell you there is the nut, and it's the
uext thing to the doctrine of State Rights,
uuder which, the rebels left the Union,
and that's why they're patting Horaee on
the back and saying to him, " Good fel
low, we'll help you." D ) you see it t
Old Andy n ever believed such doctrine
I don't, and the leaders of our party
who 11 nominate Greely on the 9th ol
July next will find out in November that
the people don't.
If you don't hear from me asain, I'il
see you at the Fair, in October, when we
can talk the whole matter over.

Columbus, June 21 The boiler in
tn uTiMiaivA lAons of the Ohio Brash
and Wire Works, located witin the walls
of the Ohio Peuitentiary. exploded this
mornin? i;ist after the convicts had start
ed to work, with a terrible noise and ef
fect. The flying boiler tore out the three
story building in "which it was placed,
making it a mass of ruins, and tore the
outside walls and roof off of UufTs cooper-shop
and George Gill's stove foun
dry, not far off. Pieces of the boiler
were thrown arcat distance.
At the time of the accident eighty -five
men were iu the brush-shop' ami were
jast going to work. The shock was ter
rific, aud yet no person was killed ont
right Several men were blown out the
wiudows, and fell with the debris from
the fourth story of the building- One
man at work in the lower story of the
boiler-house, remained for thirty minutes
between two heavy timbers. The fire
man and engineer in charge of the boiler
were both buried under a pile of brick
and timbers, but they were dug out alive
though considerably bnrned and buised
Some of the escapes were almost miracu
lous. As soon as possible a large force
was put to work, and the men who were
buried nnder the ruins were all dug out,
and with the other wounded were taken
to the Prison Hospital, were scores of
good nurses were on hand, and they are
now all well cared for. Of the persons
injured and now in the hospital it is
thonght all but half a dozen will recover.
The engineer in charge of the boiler
says he eannot account for the accident,
as a second before the explosion occurred
he had on but 85 pounds of steam. Otis
end of this boiler exploded about a year
aco, aud it is said it has leaked ever
since. The loss will be about S3.000.
