LONDON, September 24.—The Guardian
says: A manuscript in Lord Byron%
own handwriting will soon be published,
which will settle the question raised by
Mrs. Stowe.
The Times, today, in an article on the
letter of Father Hyacinth says: "It is to
the Pope and his Jesuit advisers that we
are indebted for A. - 3. Hyacinth. With
out the idea of a Council he might have
continued in the discharge of hiii office,
occasionally starting his hearers with
sudden flashes of the truth—that is in
thus bearing the accustomed yoke, and
allowing himselft to be accounted the
luminary of the Church of which
he is now considered a fire brand,
the Pope would scarcely dream
of rebuking him in the same man.
ner. He continued Father Passaglia,
the noted Italian theologian and oppo
nent of the temporal power. Father
Hyacinth% letter is not the production
of a worldly spirit. It is the effusion of
. a soul in earnest, and is the first utter
., ance of a word which may take root and
grow and fructify.
The Standard to-day says: “Whatever
•:;: her legitimate claims to Cuba may be,
Spain labors under a disadvantage in
having to prosecute them in the face of
the susceptibilities of the American pee
"- ple. while she is herself in a condition of
revolution. The Americans cannot wish,
for anything else than that Cuba shall
be free , to choose whether she remain
with Spain,' or become an independent .
Republic. That material assistance is
rendered to Cuba through the sympathy
which the Americans feel for her, can
, not be doubted:" but if those sympathies
;should demand war, it would be the most
i'anconalous , and , extraordinary conflict.

Governer Geary and suite left Apollo

route for Butler, Pa. At Allegheny

of citizens from Freeport and escorted
into town. A large company greeted
the Governor's' arrival at the depot in

hotel where the formal recep:ion took
place. The excitement was intense, and
the people seemed to turn out en inane
to welcome the distinguished visitors/.
After taking some refreshments the
party visited the County Fair which was
in progress. The reception at this place.
where - visitors from all parts of the
county and surroundings had gathered,
was equally flattering, and exhibited in
arked degree the feeling pf the people.
At night a grand mass meeting was

of ladle's and gentlemen who had turned
out to honor the Chief Executive.
At seven' o'clock the meeting was
called to order by Hugh Morrison, Esq p

—The Grand Lodge of Good Templar%
In session at Rochester, N. Y., adopted a
platform which says: The first solid

assertion that ever Good Templar

cating drinks. The doctrines of prohibi
tion for each individual and for society
stand first in the teachings of our order,
and while we are not a political organiza
tion, but rather an institution to educate
the people of a political action, a Good
Templar in the discharge of his duties as
a citizen, should recognize the claims of
his obligation and dq all In hie power to
secure and force restrictive and prohibi
tory legislation. The time has not come
for the organization of a political party,
but the time has come for every temper

for the largest immediate results now
practicable.. It is evident that prohibi
tion is now presented us as the first avai
able work' to be done.

A Few YiOn Words to the Voters ut
Allegheny County.
EDITORS GazErrn: The undersigned
claims Lobe as good a temperance man
as the county holds. He also claims
to be a good Republican—one who
always supports the nominees of the
party, unless good and sufficient reasons
are given to him for voting against them.
With these pi omises before him, the
question occurred, "What is my duty
this Fall in reference to the candidates for
County Commissioner""
As a temperance man and a Repnbli.
can, Who shall I support? .Boswifk.
Dickey or McGee? Tula is a quettion
which every voter should , carefully
weigh for himself before casting his
vote at the coming election—whether he
be a temperance or an intemperance
man, he should fully discuss in his
own mind which of the three candidates
to support with his vote and voice.
Mr. Bostwick 'hold's the nomination
from the Republican bel i ev e Mr. Dickey
from - the Reform, (I that is fair,
for they don't claim to be the temper
ance party, at least their speakers don't)
and Mr. McKee from the Democratic
The undersigned is personally acquaint
ed with all three of the candidates, and
can cheerfully testify to the good char
acter they all possess, and so far as an
hcquaintance of sevezeiliyears with them
goes to prove, be is folly persuaded that
eitheif one of them is as trustworthy as
the others.
In the matter of business qualifications,
they again are equally well fitted for the
office; being all business men of good
commercial standing.
In the matter of this world's goods, 1
believe Mr. Dickey has the advantage
over all, and Mr. McGee has it also over
Mr. Bostwick—me latter being not only
a poor man, but, unfortunately, the lobs
of an arm has unfitted him for competing
do fair grounds with his more fortunate
Now, I propose to drop Mr. McGee, as
he is a Democrat, and no better qualified,
in my judgment, than his Republican
opponents, and hereafter confine' my re.
miirka to the other two candidates, being
both Republicans. .
In the first place, then, I distinctly
state that Mr. Bostwick was nominated
by his party in opposition to George
Hamilton, the present Cpmmissioner, a
member of the obnoxious ring, if any such
thing exists outside of the heads of a few
disappointed and chronic offt:e-seekers.
He defeated, in convention, the candi
date of the ring, for this nomination, on
the distinct pledge made to his friends
that he would honestly and faithfully ex
ecute the law, and on this pledge being
Made known, tie received the open and
bitter opposition of every one supposed
to be in the interest of Whisky. --
What more can Mr., Dickey do? What
more does he propose to do? Nothing!
Now, then,:.vidit be falfill his pledge to
his friends•to•bonestly and faithfully ex.!,
saute not onirtbewhiskyorlicenseigir ,
but all ,business , coming before him as
County Commissloper?
For,my part, Messrs. Editors, after an
acqnsintanceof fifteen yeam, I am willing
to trust hits, so far as honesty and in=
tegrity are concerned. • .
Yes, but the Dickey men say, has he
the back bone necessary to oppose the re
maining two Commissioners? Aye! he
has that very qualification iman eminent
degree, for proof of which I can point to
his history as a police officer and to his
conduct in times when it required back
,or moral courage, to enforce the
police laws, and a more determined man
does not exist. than this same one armed
Again, does he drink? Is he a drinking
man? Yon Republicans who threw np
your bats for General Grant, and have
steadily and persistently voted for every
county and city officer for these dozen
years or more, need not be informed that
there is a distinction to be made between
a man who drinks and a drunkard. That
Chauncey Bostwick does not belong to
the latter class, need not be affirmed
here;but if he or Mr. Dickey' want
ed a glass of wine or beer, or maybe on
a cod day something stronger the wri
ter firmly believes that they w o nld take
it, andjdo Mr. Dickey's friends attempt
to find fault with it? No! On the con
trary, their orators everywhere proclaim
that they are not a temperance party of Utters, bat temperate men, after re
form in the Commissioner's Office. So
do we.
Now, airs,• one word more: Who are
Mr. Dickey's friends? • Who are they
who hold up their hands in holy horror
and cry out with aloud voice, this man,
Bostwick, must not be elected. The
orator who is stumping the county for
him, is himself a disappointed and ohs
grinedoffice seeker. He went into the
County Convention and sought to be
nominated by the Republican party for
Assembly, and was defeated. Of course
he cries out "mad dog" to turn the
public gaze from himself. He was per
fectly willing to accept a• nomination
from any ring, or as the old maid said,
"good Lord, anybody." But lo! when
he faile d and was defeated, then he
became loud and blatant against the
corruptions of the party, and rung the
changes that the ticket should be bolted.
Poor fellow, 'I commend him to a faith
ful husbandry of hirc• resources.
Others of Mr. Dickey's. warm friends'
we find among those who supported the
claims of Jos. liMlwortia for this same of
fice of County Commissioner. Of coarse,
they don't like Mr. Bostwick, or any .
body who bad the audacity to defeat,
their candidate—par excecountllence—he who
wanted to work for the y without
pay or hcp of reward, but whom the
convention preferred to set aside for the
purpose of nominating a worthy' on e .
armed poor man, who could not etfferd to
work for nothing., • ,
Other supporters of . Mr: Dickey are
made np i t s follows: • ,
First—Disappolnted and soured Re
publicans. ,
Second—Democrats, who want McGee,
their candidate, elected. ' •
04rd-4-Temperance men, opposed to
all law for licenses and who are stupid
enough to• believe the Commissioners
have unlimited powers for granting or
not granting all Licenses.
Fourth—A. few respectable Repuipli.

The Titusville Hearld of yesterday
Within the last thirty days prospect
ing for new oilfields and for the contin
nance of oil belts, has been unusually
successful. About a month ago a ten
barrel well was struck near Emlinto,
in entirely new district. Then n the
Church Run district was extended west

five barrel well, FoitowingcloselynDOEl
these a new sixty-five barrel well was
struck on the Shaw farm, Rouseville, by
which a large addition was made to the
producing lands. More recently the
Bean farm and Cherrytree ran districts
havo been enlarged, the latter consider
ably, and to-day we have to report that.
the territory at Rowieville, on the west
side of the creek, baa been extended
three-fourths of a mile westward. This
last hps been made tolerably certain by
the striking of a new well at the distance
named from the creek. The well is lo
cated on the A. Buchanan farm, is known
as the Mountain welt, and now produces
25 barrels daily.. .was completed
about three weeks since; .but, owing , to
the tubing in it being defective, the pro
duction did not exceed six barrels, until
early this week, when the defective tub
ing was removed anti the production has
since -increased, and now is as stated.
The well is owned the land inrest
of the farm on which by
it is situated .The
discoveries of territory noted above are
of .great importance, as they will add
