A Strange Story— KecoarkaMe Discovery.
Mr. James Lumley, tm old Bookjr fountain
trapper, who bus been stopping ot,the Everett
House for several days, makes a most tenmrka
ble statement to ns, and one which, Sf authenti
cated, will produce the greatest excitement in
the scientific world.
Mr. Lumley states that about the middle of
last September he was engaged in trapping in
the mountains about seventy-five or one hun
dred miles shove the Great Falls of the Upper
Missouri, and in the neighborhood 'On wbnt is
knbwn tie Cadotte Pass.. Just after sunset one
evening bo beheld a, bright, lumindus body in
the heavens, which was moving with great ra
pidity in ah easterly direction. It was .plainly
visible for at least five seconds, wheiS itjudden
ly separated into particles, resembling; as Mr.
Lumley describes it, the bursting of sky
rocket in the air. A few mlgutes later-ho
beard a heavy explosion, which jarred the earth
very perceptibly, and this was shortly after
followed by a rushing sound, likea- tornado
Sweeping through the forest. A strong wind
sprang up about the same time, 'sudden
ly subsided.' The air woe also fille'd. with a
peculiar odor of a sulphurous character.
These incidents would have made but a
slight impression on thomind of Mr. Lumley,'
but for the fact that on fhe ensuingda'y he dis
covered, ot o distance of about two miles from
his camping place, that, astarwne oourasee'
In cither direction, a path had been cut through
the forest, several rods wide—giant up
rooted' or broken off near the ground, the tops
of hills shaved off and the earth plowed .up in
1 many.places. Great and wide-spread havoc
was. everywhere visible. tip this
r track' of desolation, ho soon ascertained the
came of it'in the shape of an immense -stone
that bad been driven into the side of a; moun
tain, But now comes the most remarkable
part of the story. An. examination of this stone,
or so much of it ns was visible, showed that it
had been divided into compartments; dnd that
injurious places it was. carved with curious
hieroglyphics I More than this, Mr. Lumley
also.discovcred frugmonts of a substatfCe glass,
and here and there dark stains,na though
caused by a liquid. Hois confident that the
hieroglyphics were the work of human, hands,
and that the stone itself, although but; a frag
ment qf an Immense body, must have bfcjm used
for some purpose by anti mated beings;;
Strange as this story appears, Mr. .Lamley
relates it with so much rincerity that we ars
forced to accept it as truej It is evident that
the stone which he discovered was a fragment
of the meteor which was visible in this section
in September last. It will be remembered that
it was seen in Leavenworth, in Galena, land in
this city by Col. Bonneville. At Leavenworth
It waa teen to separate into particles, or ex
ploded ' l. .
Astronomers have long held that it is proba
ble that tho heavenly bodies aw inhabited,
even the comets—and it may be that the me
teors are also. Possibly meteors aka used as a
means of “conveyance, by the inhabitants of
other planets, in exploring space, aba i(. may
be that hereafter some future Columbus, from
Mercury or Cranus.may land on thja planet
by means of meteoric conveyance, full
pftsseseion thereof, as did the Spanish.naviga-,
tors of the New World in 1492, and eventually
drive what is knqwn as the " hufnftb race”
into a condition of tho most nhjeot servitude.
It ha4.always .been a favorite theory with,
many, that there must be a race superior to us,
and this may nt some future time.’ be .demon
strated in the manner we have indicated.
A Conqueror after the Copperheads.
"When Gen. ShefSman returned the
South, to present the laurels of his gTiat vic
tory-to the Government, some slight'. fjsagreo f
merit between the hero and the Secretary of
War produced a profound sensation- in the
clrcle.-of copperheadism. It was at oripe pro
claimed that Sherman must be mafle'Presidfent
In 1868—that he was a Democrat, ancHtecause
cf which the " Abolition Administration”
hated and slighted him. Now, let us*see what
Sherman himself puts on record on this sub
ject. The following letter, Gen,
Kilpatrick, of New Jersey, bis & Volume of

"Ges. Jcdson Kilpatrick —Dear Sir; I

the war from every conceivable motive. Some

litical party. Some because they thought we

reduced to demonstration, cannot to explain
their conduct even to themselves. I hare no
patience with that class of men, and believe
the people of the South have more respect Jor

The older of the two persons gives his age

ing too bugbear of “ High Prices” to the ad
miring gnze of its patrons, at the modest pride
of $2, or $lO a year, weekly, or daily, ns t|e
case may be.
They parade this bugbear, and with the gen
uine lingo of the tramping showman enlarge
o poiTTts immensity, its forrnidability, and its
destructive disposition toward the human race.
We give a specimen; ■ ~ ,i .

aiassncmisetts. Tiaving escaped from the_~maa.-.

dum was Greenbaxinflation. It is four years
old, 200 babds high,, and weighs 2,82§,526
pounds, 5 ounces, and 4 pennyweights. Walk
up, walk up, gentlemen !’’
• Let ue look at this bugbear : Prices range
high for nil the articles of living, as well -as
. luxury. Of course there is a reason for- it.
Ves ; through tbe connivance of the North
ern Democratic leaders tbe Slaveholders were
induced to levy war upon the Constitutions!
Government. This rendered the raising, cloth
ing,'equipping, subsisting and paying of (mi
immense army and navy necessary. To do alj
this required an extraordinary expenditure—
many times greater than tbe revenues of the
Government would meet. So evidences of
debt were created, and multiplied, until the
country, with all its business enterprises, was
borne forward apon the volume of the curren
cy. While the current demand remained pro
porthniate to the volume, money passed freely
from®knd to hand, and the appreciation of
values to special, rather than genera]
articles. when the current expenses of
the Government began to fall off, the instincts
of Capital informed Wall-st., that without a
corresponding contraction of the volume of tbe
currency paper money roust depreciate seri
ously. Add to this tbe absorption of bresd
"stuffs and provisions by speculators, and the
reign of high prices is sufficiently -accounted
Bnt are High Prices peculiar to this time, or
to Republican role 7 We have seen that pres
ent high prices grow out of the rage of specu
lation, euperadded to currency expansion to
meet tbe expenses of a war of unprecedented
magnitude. If we can show that greater finan
cial distress has prevailed under* and preceded
by, many years of •• Democratic” rule, ought
not that fact to close the calumnious lips of
tbe shameless drummers of a moribnnd party f
Let us, see ; Some of as remember the pan
ic and crash oC 1837 ; and tbe crash of 1857 is
unpleasantly fresh in tbe memory of nil. We
pan safely say that the powers of the Govern
ment had been wielded, practically, by the
“ Democratic” party from 1828 to March 4,
1661. History informs ns that the financial
distress of 1887 was unprecedented. It occur
red in a time of profound peace, when the pub
lic indebtedness wss trifling, in a season of
fair crops. Yet bread of wheat was hardly
within tbe means of well-to-do farmers and
mechanics, and laborers were glad to get corn
meal at exorbitant prices. Pork was $4O per
barrel, and wag** to to /
- Twenty years litter, tbe Government being
in the bands of the “ Democracy" meanwhile,
practically, there came another crash, and the
role of High Prices was like a yoke of iron.
Happily, we need not refer to history for illus
trative facts. They are fresh in the memory of
every man—the experiences of 18S7. James
Buchanan, was President. Flour, fourth rate,
was sold at $l2 and $l3 a barrel in Wellsboro.
Other provisions in proportion. Confidence in
banks was nowhere. We made a trip to New
England and could not get a railroad ticket
the face of the best paper money. So we pat
ronised a broker and purchased gold at a com
fortable shave. We traded beet Pennsylvania
notes at a loss .of 5 pfcr cent;'' All this time
work was scarce and wages low. You coaid
not get money to buy with. And this in a
time of profound peace, under " Democratic”
rale, with no public debt to speak of. Even
in 1855-6, flour, not too good for hogs to eat.
sold for $lO in these parts.
How does that time compare with this ? let
us. see:
. Yon can step into any National Bank in the
country, and procuring its notes, travel In any
State without hindrance, as if you paid in gold.
Yon pay $l4 a barrel for flour good enough for
anybody; yon pay 20 cents a pound for porter
honse or loin steak, 16 for corned beef, 45 for
butter, 25 for best brands of sugar, and fabu
lous prices for cloths and clothing. We pay
21 cents for paper once costing 9 cents; 30
cents for ink once dear at 16 cents; and flO

“ What will be the next Copperhead dodge 1”
is a constantly recurring question. Well, the
Cincinnati Evquirtr, the leading western organ
-of that faction, answers that question fully, as
follows ; .
"There bus been no attempt to destroy the
Government; nor has anybody in particular
preserved the republic. The Government of
the United States was never attacked: and if
the republic—free institutions—have been pre
served, they owe their preservation to their in
nate vigor, and the native spirit of the people,
not to either men or events."
—To which we attach, aa a corollary: Jas.
Buchanan is President of the United States,,
and the popular belief that Abraham Lincoln
was'elected in 1860, served four years, was re
eledted in 1864, was, basely assassinated by a
Copperhead last April, is an illusion; that
the popular belief that the South repudiated
the Constitution, hurled greatarmie* against
the United States ; that the latter raised a mill
ion and a half of soldiers, armed, equipped,
subsisted and paid them ; that three-fourths of
the families in the land mourn the death of
some one or more of their respective circles by
the casualties of war: that there., have been
drafts, and skedaddling; that the Government
is heavily in debt—all these are illusions.
Further, that the popnlar belief that this is
the 1865th year of the Ohristian era is also an.
illusion. We are in the dark ages. Peter the
Hermit is haranguing the Crusaders from his
column ; Richard is Jousting with Saladin ;
Babylon is in full bloom ; Dido is wooling the
credulous JEueas amid the magnificence of Car
tbage ; Titus is besieging Jerusalem ; Daniel
is bearding Belshazzar; Bonaparte is crossing
the Rhino ; Washington is crossing the Dels
ware; and Moses has just declared death' to
Snakes ! -
P. S. . The earth is fiat as a pancake Ditto
Copperhead logic.
The. President's i-e'coDStraotioD policy, baaed
upoQ great magnanimity, has failed. The
rebellious South wants Justice, not magnanim
ity. Kindness is thrown away upon such peo
ple. _ ;
But we are glad the President exhausted le
niency in hie effort to fit the rebels for recep
tion into the Union. It was wise, and fully
justifies Congress in trjing what virtue there
may be in stones.'
Mr. Editor i . Permit a tax payer to enquire, by
what prioctple’jou are governed, in selecting names
for publication, from the Income tax list ? Ido not
fancy this discrimination, and cannot see why Mr.
Jones* -income -should be thus paraded, while Mr.
Smith, bis neighbor, with more or less, as the case
may be, la left otrt-in modest retirement.
There Is a solution which has been suggested, but
which seems too monstrous for belief—-that these /no
ore nil that have returned their incomes to the assessor /
Mr. Editor, has Tioga county so few honest citi
zens as this would, indicate ? Why there are dozens
of men in all our towns, whose incomes exceed tho
allowed $5OO. Where aro they ? Where are the solid
business men of Bloss. Covington, Richmond, Tioga
and Wellsboro f Their name is logion, and their
well-known business receipts, and style of living,
would scorn the paltry sum of $BOO, as a limit.
There must bo gross misunderstanding of the law,
or more gross deviation from-truth In these returns.
Where are our rich lumbermen, for instance ? I
vertbly believe some men think themselves exempt
from taxation, because Ibey make their money by
lumbering. Thaddeus Stevens boasts that he com
pelled the Committed on Ways and Means to exempt
lumber from taxation, as not being a manufacture—
thereby robbing Government of some millions annu
ally. but securing popularity with good lumbermen
no doubt, who thence think themselves entitled to
shut the door on the assessor, altogether, as many do.
Now, lumber it a manufacture, as much as cloth in
the piece or iron in the ptg or bar; and It should be
taxed equally with other manufactures. Why not ?
It is ° a precarious business," certainly. So is the
manufacture of Iron; of .cotton goods j of woolens.
So Is merchandizing and all mechanical pursuits—yet
all are taxed, and all are profitable, or why do men
follow them ?
I would call the attention of Hon. Mr, Wilson to
this palpable omission of the lumber-men. They are
stripping our hills of a wealth which cau never be re
stored, and coining it into gold. Let them disburse
a small portion of this income in the shapa-of reve
nue taxes. X have no ill-will towards our citizens
who are in this business. All I ask in this, as in other
departments of industry Is that they hear a share of
the burdens of the war, and that all shall make ah
honest sad truthful return of Income, as in this way
only can be made and maintained a system of just
and ' Equal Taxation
P. S. Does not the law require persons to make
these returns under oath ? 'The Assessor should see
to this.

change of residence and pursuits would restore my
health, when a friend recommended Hostettaria Bit*

quired bat one bottle to convino me that I bad - found
ont the right combination of remedies. The relief it
afforded me has been complete. It is now some years
