Again, we remind our readers in the
boroughs and country townships, as well
as in the_larger cities, of the duty of pro-`
viding for the election, in October, of all
the officers whom they have heretofore
chosen in the Spring. By the present
law, the Spring elections are abrogated
altogether, and all the elected officers of
the people, frcim Governor down to con
stable, are to be chosen at the October
polls. Consequently, the usual business
of the spring must be attended to
now. It,ls time that the nominations
were made, and for every local office, ex

the election of 1870. ' I

ant questions. The Republican party
exists 'for' certain ends, and no others.
The ends it has is view have been pro
claimed over and over again, and always
with a distinctness sufficient to make mis-
conception impossible.
That party takes no account of differ
ences hi religions faith and worship ; of
divergent ideas and purposes as to Free
Trade and Protection; or as to whether
its members tnake, vend or drink intoxi
,beverages, or abstain therefrom.
This is why this journal has not con

A Washington dispatch of the 22nd
It has been discovered by an official at
the State Department that the Cuban
Constitution, published in May last in
the United ' '
States, differs from the one
promulgated in Cuba in July. The form
er is anti.slavery in its sentiments, while
the latter contains clauses reoosinising
slavery and upholding It throughout the
island in case the insurrection is a awl.
Months ago, this journal invited public
attention to the palpable fact that this
Cuban revolt was a movement purely in
the interests of the perpetuation of Afri
can slavery upon that Wand. We have
never hesitated to speak of the so-called
Cuban Constitution, promulgated by Ces
pedee and his insurrectionary junta, as
a bald sham in so far as it purported to
declare the abolition of slavery. We
have often denounced the trick which
sought to engage our republican syrups-
thies, by its high•sounding proclamations
in behalf of human liberty, while the
maintenance of every odious and wicked
feature of the existing institution,
in the districts commanded by the flag of
revolt, gave proof of the real policy which
seeks the perpetuation of slavery in the
overthrow of the Spanish authority. We
have as often directed the notice of our
readers to the equally undeniable fact
that the armed resistance of these insur
gents has presented the only obstacle to
the immediate liberation of all the Cuban
populations, under that great charter of
universal • freedom, the new Con
stitution of Spain. And - we take
pleasure in rememberine that *e have as
steadily and faithfully remonstrated
In the twelve months past, against the
tidally mistaken policy which sought to

the most disgracefully unfortunate, upon

views, we have constantly deplored the
current efforts of a portion of the eastern
press to mislead the American public, as
to:the retti . merits of the Cuban question.

Some twelve years since a man named
Moses Savage returned from California,
having in his possession, so rumor said,
a large amount of gold. Ile stopped one
night at the house of Wilson Ager in
Robrersburg, and upon following
II morning his brother, Joshua Savage, on
calling at the house, was informed by
Ager that Moses had his departnre

time Ager closed up a well On the prem.

peremptorily forbade the cleaning ont of
this well, work having been commenced
by directions of Mrs. Ager. Ager left
'home a short time after the disappearance
of Savage, stating that he was going to
California.- On hie return, which was
thought to be too soon for so distant a

THE popular impression about Italy as
the land par excellence of assassination,
has, it appears, some basis In fact. The
proportion of homicides to population is
the highest in the - tienineula, being 10.82
for every 100,000 souls, while in Spain it
is 8.24, in Sweden 2.02, in England 1.95,
and in Belgium only 0.16. About a
fifth of the cases of homicide in North
Italy are infanticides, the proportion di
minishing as we. go south. till in Sicily
it is only 2 per cent., a reduction probably
in inverse ratio , to the importance attached
to chastity.

The Code of Honor.
The code of honor is a code which puts
gentlemen at the mercy of bullies. In
the most plausible case that can be sug
gested it does this;; and as the feeling
which justifies it Is wholly morbid, you well reason with a miasma.
Still, this may not seem to dispose of
the question. In the present states of
iesce i
feeling you insist that it is a very serious
injury to man to acqun an insult.
If at a public table, say at Saratoga, at
Newport, wherever it may be a person
suddenly arrests attention by loudly ex
claiming to you across the table,"Sir, you
lie • you are no gentleman," and then
swishes a bumper of port into your face
and over your most miraculous shirt-front,
what is to be done ? Yon declare that if
the insulted person merely changes hie
shirt the stain remains,
won e
or cris aloud
for vengeance, and he ill find that he
had better leave the place if he intends to
do nothing. Very well ; what might to
be done ? Let the opponent be of his
own circle, and not a recognized adven
turer or hick-leg -0d still, what shall be
be done? Shall he :demand an apology,
and, if it be refused, ,blow out the brains
of the offender : or take any of the milder
measures, such as turning his - nose with
some vehemence. of mining him in the
sheet ; shall he o ff er the person who has
insulted him a chance t to kill him also?
And if you who are the Insulted per
son, as it is ckled, do any of these things,
why do you do it? If, inde;ed, in hot
blood, you fly at him across the table, or
fling a, dectgiter at him as a Roland for
his Oliver, you do as all men do who lose
their tempers. But that is quite another
affair. If, however, you proceed in any
of the manners we have mentioned, you
do it because of a certain public - opinion.
The real question for you, then;le whether
it is a right or wrong public opinion,
whether you ought to yield to It or pro
test against It. That is a question upon
which it should seem that few gentlemen
ought to differ. The business of gentle
men is obviously , to elevate and purgy
public opinion ;;and this is done•in many
ways, but in none more effectividy than
in guarding their own conduct Boston

his intention to vacate the seat, quite as
insulting as the remark w hich that passen

view of this leading case, then, ought not
a gentleman to decide that his duty is not
to assert his gentility by turning the nose
of the doubtfhl Thomas, but by quietly

The political campaign is slowly open
ing. The Senatorial question has been
;an incubus. It is difficult to create en
tklasiasth. Mr. Ratan is now canvassing
this county in connection with other

the Republicans carry the election in this
