To the Editort of reiuisyh'ania : Gentxj.men : llaviue; reat the se lections from sixteen paper published iti iho State Jouriml of August 20th, cotidciiiniiij' the policy in regard to the temperance ticket of August 9th, I ntn satisfied tho character of this movement is not uu.lcrstooil, Without intending it, some of you are (loins' a great wrong to the main body of tern perunce men. Yon speak of it as an action for which the temperance cause is responsible, aud its it it hud some official character. Itisonlva move, men t of a very few dissatisfied men who have separated themselves from the main body, und in tho language of their audrai, ol August To, "luruied a party, adopted a platform, and turn. icated candidates," This movement had its origin with the present editor of the official organ of the Good Tem plars, who was joined by a few' men of good character, he having made them beleive that the cause had been "sold out" by the President of the May Convention, and thus induced them to unite with him in a cull for tho Au gust meeting. Ou the SOth of June, the State Central Committee w us ap pointed, and the lenders of this Au gust movemeut accepted positions in that committee, and met with it July 11. Having accepted this position under iho authority of the May Con vention, the August Convention should have been abandoned, us the reasons assigned fur it no longer existed. Hut these mon met, aud iu spite of ail of torts to prevent it, placed in nomina tion a Stato ticket. To justify their action, they (hen said "we are acting as individuals, without any otiicial authority." Now they claim official character, and say they "have formed a party, Ac." From these facts it will he seen this action is nothing less than rebellion aguiust the authority of tho May Con vention, of which these tutu still claim to be a part. Temperance men, as a body, therefore are iu no way responsi ble for this ticket. Already several District Conventions ill various parts of the Slate have repudiated this ac tion, the State Central Committee are preparing to do so, and other orgtn uutions will follow. Let this factiou be treated hereafter so us not to involve any man who is true to his principles aud faithful to his pledges. 1'. Coomb i:. Lancaster, Fa, Aug. 'J'Jth, 1871. In the "Life of Uiiiihum," uu amu sing anecdote is told of King, the ac tor, who met a friend whose name he had forgotten, ami took him home to dinner. After several incH'cctual at tempts to tiud out his name, King said: "Mv friend and I have a dis pute as tu hoiv yoii spell your name; indeed wc have laid u bottle of wine about it."

A nicely dressed young gentleman en tered a barber shop iu a eome-whHt retired portion of the city a few days ago, for the purpoBO of getting shaved. The tousorial artist . epttt o the brush nnd proceeded to lather, when he was Rtopped by the horror stricken custom er, who inquired what bo meant by spitting on the brush. "Why," -said the liarber, "ain't you a gentleman?" "Yes," replied the stranger. "Well," said the barber, "that's tho way we treat geutletueu; when a rough compl in, we just merely epit on his face." Sometimes in after life, when the feet of sonic wayward man have stray cd far away from the home of his youth, and his heart has wandered far from his father's God, some mem ory of the pnst, like the sweet, sad memory of the evening chime, may wake long slumbpring echoes and open long soaled 1'ountaiiiV; and a fath er's counsels and a motlui's prayers wi!l come up again from the sacred burial placet of the pnst with wondrous power to ruelt and win the . wayward heart.

A quakcr gentleman riding in a carriage with a fashionable lady deck ed with n profusion of jewelry, heard her complain of tho cold. Shivering in her lace bonnet and shawl as light as a cobweb, she ezclamed: "What shall I do to get warm?"

"A sinzular name," said bouiebody, "for a beauti ful pet, madam. Where did you find it?" "Oh," drawled she, "it was named for BvronV doer.
