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 cept the Assessors who hold over until the election of 1870. ' I WISER'MAN THEY SEEM. It the writers 'on the Post were as ig norant as they sometimes appear to be, they would be more suitably employed in breaking stone,onldghways than in as suming to enlighten the public on imports 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 cating ,beverages, or abstain therefrom. This is why this journal has not con cerned itself with Governor GEARY'S hab its or professions in regard to Temperance. If he sees proper to drink or not to drink certain beverages, that is a matter which does not concern the Republican party,. but himself only; unless, indeed, if he ihould see proper to drink, he should in dulge to such a degree as to affect his competency as a public officer. Except under the condition stated, it would be a piece of impertinence for us, as it is, with the rolle, to drag his piofessions or prac tice in this regard into current political discussion.. , • The GAZETTB,. supports G ov GEARY for re•electlan under the' impression that he does not drink, just. as it supports other candidates on the ticket under the impression that they do Indulge.

Greedy men in public employments are pretty certain, by operating on the igno rance of citizens, to get more than they are entitled to. and such placemen are not likely to let their illegal gains appear in the returns they make to the Auditor General. No effectual remedy can be found against these practices in any statute that can be-trained; but only in the character of the men selectee for public trusts. It remains for the members of the Re publican party in this city and county, each fot himself, to determine whether the motive avowed by the Commercial for its chronic spleen against that organi zation is the true one, or whether a flimsy pretext iabrought forward, either because no other exists, or because the time has not arrived for an honest disclosure of intentions. TUE CUBAN FRAUD. A Washington dispatch of the 22nd says: 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. 013£0. 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 embroil the Government of this free Republic—where universal freedom has just been secured at so fearful a cost—ln a foreign controversy and, of all things the most disgracefully unfortunate, upon the side of those who uphold and main • Min the same accursed blot upon Christ tan civilization,which nearly dragged the Great Republic to its rain. Instating, as we have, upon these 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. Our protests hive neither been few •nor mild against the ignorance or thewicked nen of those Journalists, who hive spared no efforts to plunge our government into such overt`demoastralorus, la behalf of the Cubafl , as would, in 'Wei of • the . Witty° tOt, not 'only have de. fasted Ott diplotolefvdt/VEng l o l , 141 E:tAdql vuaqa; Tub WILSESBARBE Record of the Times, in reviewing some of the absurd propositions of New York journals for ensuring the safety of workmen employed in mines,: makes hard hits. Take this as a sample. “Take the Dundee shaft in Hanover, eight hundred feet deep, and as fiery as Pine Ridge, with a large stream of water pouring igto it from some point nearly a hundred feet from the surface. When the company shall conclude to work it, how are the men to find two ways to get out and in before they have worked out at least as much coal as at Avondale? We should like the advocates of coal at V 5 per ton in New York to try the expense of a shaft 600 feet deep, and they would decide on seeing where a second shaft was needed. Then we should like to see them engineer a coal operation with all the breakers and machinery at a distance pleased the shaft. Indeed, we should be to see the wisdom of the many writers on this subject in the city papers shine over this land at their own cost, as they will not accept the experience of the neihbors who have learned in other ways than •Consumers' Benefit Schemes.' " Pennsylvanians know how stupid and uninformed the best of the New York journals are on all matters pertaining specially to this Commonwealth and its ongoings. They begin more than to sus pect that in other matters concerning which their knowledge is not as definite, and in relation to which those journals are equally oracular, they may be just as Ignorant and unreliable.

LANCASTER county grows more tobac co than any other county in Pennsylvania, the annual value of its crop being esti mated in a general way at "several mil lions of dollars." Many of the farmers raise tobacco—just enough for their own smoking, but not as an article of com merce, except in very few cases. Mn. S.

He planted them, giving them the usual cultivation, and last week on harvesting his crop he found he had one hundred and thirty pounds, measuring up over two and one-half bushels of good sound potatoes. PENNSTLVANIA. FARM ASSOCIATIONS are popular among the Germans residing in hew York city. A tract of land com posed of 50,000 acres, in Potter county, has been settled on this plan, and has lo cated upon it a thriving village, called Germania. The farms of twenty-five acres each are sold for $3OO, and are paid for in instalments of $2 a week. The as sociations organized for the purpose of obtaining farms at low rates, consist of fifty members each, and purchase large tracts of 1250 acres. ON Friday of last week a citizen of Beaver got into the cars of the P., Ft. W. & C. It. R., at Pittsburgh, to return home, and while en route went into the baggage car, seating himself on a chair near the door, too near, unfortunately. After being thus seated for a few mo ments, he made an effort to lean himself back against the edge of the door, when one leg of the chair slipped over the threshold, precipitating man, chair and all out of the car and down over a slight embankment—the train running at the rate of thirty miles per hour. The cars were immediately stopped, and upon go , ing back for the unfortunate being, it was discovered that he had escaped without any serious injury. Turin is a colony of that rare insect, the Stinges Grandis of Say, located - the present season on the south bank of the turnpike, east of Crawford's grove, about a mile above Norristown,, Montgomery county. This curious insect—a mammoth hornet—burrows in a bank to the depth of one or two feet, making a smooth hole of an inch diameter, into which it depos its one or more of the Cicada, or annual locusts, as food for its young, after the fashion of the mud wasps, the eggs of the hornet being deposited on a little cist besides the prey. By frimminieg the bank the holes may be found by the hand ful of fine earth thrown out by the exca vation, and a foot or more digging will unearth this curious lion of the insect world. Is Philadelphia there is trouble about registering. The Board of Aldermen, at a ranting on Tuesday, instructed the can vassers to issue eubpcenas to all persons whom they may have reason to suspect have been surreptiously or illegally plac ed upon extra assessment lists, command ing such persons to appear before them and produce a receipt for taxes, and if a naturalized citizen, to produce his papers, and also two qualified electors whose names appear udder the head ef "private householders," who shall be examined under oath or affirmation, and evidence shall be required-of them that such m son is personally known to them, and that he has all the quelificatiens now required by law and if such person fail to . appear and p r o duce such evidence as is' by law required, to strike the name of every such person from the registry, drawing a red ' line through the same. , [ Tun Bloomsburg Oeiumbion, (Colum blacounty),relates"A. Mysterious Affair." 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 let daybreak. From that day he has never been' seen or heard of. At shoat this time Ager closed up a well On the prem. waterhad always furnished good declaring it to be in an unfit coa -1 dition for use. On a subsequent day he 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 journey, he had with him a large amount of gold in &bag. A few days since the dis. used well _was cleaned out and bones were found therein, which medical men Bnounced to be the bones n - nf, human, g, canoes.

Tan London Times appends this notice to its report of the Norwich musical fes tival: "Mr. Barclay, who gives no ad dress except in London, and who has ig suited our musical reporter at Norwich by writing him a letter enclosing £2O in notes in order to influence his criticism on some of the performance at the festi val, is desired to Wild our office for those notes, whiph will be delivered to him after he has described them, and 'given their numbers and his address."

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. Tag draught that prevails almost every year India, it Is stated, is caused by the stripping of the country of the trees, in consequence of the increased demand for timber for making railroad ties. It is asserted that the actual quantity of rain has diminished in the plains; that the . clouds break only on the hills; and that the, rainfall, instead of fertilizing the land, is' wasted in rushing floods, which deposit more sand than fructifying soil. 'The volume of water in the rivers has de creased, the level of water in the wells has receded, and- the slightest decay or failure in the annual supply is fatal to the crops of the year. The remedy proposed is the encouragement of the planting of trees by private enterprise, as well as the cultivation oil the forests by the govern ment. FORENN NEWS AND BUXOM. - 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 might.as 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 Gentleman No .1 Is perhaps generally sup posed to have resented an ,insult in an amusing -and' appropriate manner. But i wkigras not his behavior, in irritably m g and pushing at the bags and baby wagons 'of _a passenger who had stated his intention to vacate the seat, quite as insulting as the remark w hich that passen ger made upon rising ? Upon a fair re 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 despising the public opinion which re quires him to turn it ?--F ti Y Cumn, /for per's Magazine for October. • .
