Contempt of I'ongrcas.—Tho Georgia Nig
gfrs failed to turn out in sufficient numbers at tbe
lie election, to adopt the Constitution fixed up for
■ -em by the radical Kuuijicrs. These indolont Nigs,
need reconstructing, badly. If they don't show
themselves mire " trooly loll," they'll l-.ee " dar

Worth Imitating."An active Democrat in
oa e if the township- of Guernsey county, Ohio, has
pro urcd the names of every Democratic voter in hie
uW n and an adjoining school district as subscribers
vi tbe Democratic county piper. This is an exam
ple that is well worthy of being followed, in this and
nd all |,l " er counties, in order to secure the ascen
derr of Democracy, liberty und const itutional gov
Mean.— Somebody —a drunken Almanac maker
.e presume—predicted last Fa 1, that we should
have thirty-six or sixty-six—the pre -ise number we
diiremeniber —of storms this The " Clerk
of the weathsr" seems to be fulfilling tbe prediction
to the letter. Without any apparent necessity for
more snow we have had an addition to the stock on
Inn! alinisf daily ; until now, the sleighing is about
6'teen ply. While we suppose everybody is delight
ed with the good 1 gettin' around," we, like a hun
gry child, begin to long for a sight of eien a small
patch of the bare " bosom of mother earth.'' The
j;reat scarcity of water is beginning to make people
wish fur storms in a more fluid form.
"(.iris a-slnging, Hell* a-ringltig—Our
good-natured and whole-souled townsman, Frank
Bunnell, one evening last week, took two large
sleigh loads of the little ten-year-old girls of town
on a sleigh-ride to the hospitable homestead on the
neck. There were upwards of f >rty of these minia
ture matrons of the lan iin the party. When snug
ly packed into the sleighs c.n 1 keeping time to the
merry jingle of the bells with their songs of mirth,
they looked like two overcrowded moving bird's
nests. The girls returned from this pleasant rife in
good season, r ady, " to a man," to east their rotes
jor Frar.k as the chief executive of these United
h'tates, uho by his many a ts of kindness h is rend
ered hiinseif immensely popular with these fractions
of femininity.
A friend thinks that Frank don't like full grown
women, nor little boys. Wo beg leave to disaent
from this opiaton.
Portrait of t'harl.-s I)!rk -us.--We have re
ceived a very elegant impression of a portrait, on
steel, of Chutes Di -kens, a copy of which the Messrs
Alpleton A Co. arc presenting gratis to every sub
scriber to their new and popular edition of Dickons.
It i- pronounced by goof judges to be the bet of the
distinguished author yet c-xc.uted. Any person re
mitting 51,."50 to D App-leton A CV, New York, will
re-eiie by mail, post-paid, tbe entire set ol I>l kens,
iu seventeen volumes, and the portrait, which is
suitable for framing, as above. The e '.ition of Dick
ens is published in weekly v lumcs, seven of which
are now ready. A copy of tbe p-.rtrait can be seen
at our office, where subscriptions for the books will
be received.
Northern Monthly.—There has been laid on !
oar tahie a copy rf the Northern M .n'hly for .Tanu- i
ary, anl an examination of its piges shows that this
new venture in the world of periodical literature has '
taken a fresh and hopa-fal start. Harriett Pregcott
fford begins a serial stirv. the January portion
jf shich, is. a magnificent prose poem. An article
up n Charles Dickens in America reveals a keen and
terrible pen, an i although the views uf the writer
will call out crilici.-ui, they will also command at
tend n. Oilier contrihutois are Wirt Sikes, who
tells us all "About Philadelphia Mr. Tufts, who
amly.-.s the power anl style of three eminent me
r [dit:in clergymen Deeeber, Chap o uad Durysa,
Harriett J! Fain Kimball, whose poem '• Bsfrien l
eJ." is a gem ; aud svcriJ other writers less known
lat thoroughly able, The editorial department has
features which distinguish it from the other M .ga
lines, an ! its liurary mattet is worked up in a quite
novel way.
Fur .iture.—Mr. A. E, Buck, <f this place, und
Mr. Add sterling of Me.-hopipen, we are informed,
ere about to open an extensive Furniture Store and
Cabinet wire r-aims, in this pliee. An establish
ment of the kin I proposed, cannot, we think, fail to
be remunerative to i s pr j-vctors, as well a? a con
venience to tue public. For the present, they have
sr-ure*l Wall's Hall as a place in which to exhibit
tbeir wares ; a large stock of which will be put up
.v a -hurt time As both of Ihe.-e gentlemen ap~
p.-i:ite the importance ot making their business
known to the public, our readers m y expr -t to b -ar
D .re of them hereafter.

and perfection, tve have copie 1 on a lirge "cale.this
setc//feet custom -is a result, we have cultivated,
not small graceful feet, bet ure painfully conscious
of having on hand large crops of a kinl of corns
not very much sought lor in the grain market. Tbe
true remedy, is to return to boots ond shoes made to

re not crippled, h.al better avoid becoming so, by

tlrcad Hi its,—ln all civilized portions of the
rll, bread has been regarded as an artie'e ,f
(r.ine nocessity—a most excellent thing in a family.
I deed, in su -h high esteem is it hell thit in Eu
r ;e, in times of great scarcity, or when the maferi
l oat of which it is made, is held at too high
prives, what are called "bread riots" occur. Riots
from tho cause above mentioned, rarely, if ever hap
pw. in this country Most rio's, here, spring from a
surp'us of whisky—not from a sear, it 7 of bread.— ]
■Bread is called the "staff of life ' and is said to be
rather more stiffening to the lower extremities tban 1
the other article mentioned. A pure, white, well
bkH article of bread, together with cakes, pies. (

the business uf his life. Very many families in
town use Gray-ham bread, exclusively.
Eclipses.—There will be two eclipses of the

Tuning and Repairing,—There are many
| persons in possession of Pianos and Melodeons that
j have been worn a good deal, or perhaps injoied,
1 who could still have a good deal of substantial wear
; out of ihern if they were properly put in order. To
meet this large and increasing demand L. B. Powell
| has added to his Music Store iu Scranton a Repair
Shop, and has put it in charge of a ta tn who has had
large experience both in ihe manufacture ol now in
struments and the repairing of old ones, so that he is
now prepared to do all kinds of repairing, iucluding
; Pianos, Organs, Melodeons, Guitars, Violins, Aceer
deous, anl everything in the shape ot musical instru
meuts, with promptnese and in a substantial manner.

Magnolia Water.
A delightful toilet article —superior to Co
logne and at half the price.
Tile lllood owes its red color to minute globule*
which float in that fluid, and contain, in a healthy
person, a large amount of Iron, which gives vitality
to the blood. The Peruzian Syrup supplies the
blood with this vital element, and gives strength and
rigor to the whole system.
The Great Sale of the Jay property, on the
•Hh ins- in', (northeast corner Broadway and Canal
street), resulted in tbe large store being purchased
by Thomas Smith, and the unexpired lease passing
into the hands of Baldwin, lite clothier, who is pre
.-anting the public with an idea eutircly new to the
Clothing Trade of New Yurii, viz : offers at retail
first-class wholesale slock, ernbra ing all qualities
and styles of Cue and medium garments, at a heavy
discount from wholesale prices! We ure told the
undertaking is a complete success.
Noi t —lt may be iiuportaut to dealers and the
public generally to know ih-it the Mr. Baldwin men
, tinned iu the above notice —clipped from a New
York paper—is 0 S. Baldwin, formerly ot this place.
; Wyoming County men, visiting ' Stiles," will cer
tainly receive courteous truataieut. Besides the N.
j K. corner of Broadway and Canal sts. seems to lie a
good place for shabbily dressed individuals to con
g •• tare.
i Heavy Senteucc.—JudJ Wolcott, the notorious
rowdy of the La k -w.tnaa Valley, was sentenced on
Tuesday morning to tho Penitentiary for fourteen
years and nine months, for robbery and assault und
■ buttery with intent to kill Other indictments are
ready wheu he gets out. — Record of Ihe Times.
No Wonder so many worthless medicines are
advertise ! for tbe cure of various diseases, and when
! tried "found wanting," thit the invalid loses all
friith in .-pf.-ifiea. We have yet to learn, however, of
the fi'st failure of Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry,
i ! to cure cougbs, colds, uud puiin m iry disease.
Gold was quoted in yesterday's N. Y. papers
|at 1.431. and is tiil going up—the result of radical
1 financial tinkering; and the threats of Presidential
I Impeachment, whi -h are n.w rife. •• lluw ling will

£ "Trial itotiff.s.
Among the many rest' rativis which nature has
i supplied to relieve the afflictions of humanity, there
is no more favorite one for a certain class of diseases
than the "medicinal gum" of tho Wild Cherry Tree;
but h-'tvever vajuabie it is, its power to heal, to
soothe, to relieve and to oure, is enhanced tenfold
by scientific and judicious combination with other
ingredients, in themselves of equal worth This
happy mingling exists to a remarkable degree in
Or. Wistar's Ualsam of Wild Cherry,
whose value in curing C uglis, Col ts, Brunch tis,
Whooping Cough, Croup, Asthma, Pulmonary Af
, feclioa, and Incipient Consumption is inestimable.
