This celebrated machine is now offered to
the farmers of Centre county. It is a side de
livery machine, will drop the grain in a neat
sheaf, or in a swath, and do it as well as it
can be done by band. It runs very light.—
One man, with a pair of horses, can out one
acre per hour. It is warranted in every par
ticular. It was awarded the grand gold medal
at the great national field trial, lasting three
weeks, held at Auburn, N. Y., in 1866. It has
taken the first premium for six successive
years at the Ohio State Fair. (No premiums
were awarded in 1867.) Men wanting to get a
first class harvester will do well to examine it
before purchasing any ether. It will be on
exhibition in front of the Court House during
Court week. DANIEL LEYDEN,

GOVERNOR TOD ON GOVERNOR SEY
MOUR AND GENERAL • GRANT.
Seymour is an intelligent man. I know
him well. He was Governor at the same
time I was Governor. Mr. Lincoln - called
for volunteers. • I. sent him only thirty
thousand. The President went round com
plimenting Seymour, and said nothing
about what I had done. -I took Lincoln to
task for this. I Said; "[low is it you are
complimenting Seymour for his fifteen
thousand men, and neglecting to compli—
ment Morton and met". His answer was
perfectly satisfactory. He said, "Why,
Tod, I never thanked Mrs. Lincoln for a
cup of tea in my life." [Laughter and ap.
The truth was, Morton and I had done
nothing more than what was ' expected of
us, while Seymour . had. He had never
done the like before, and never did after
ward. It was not -necessary to keep a Ma
jor General in Indiana, and Illinois, and
Ohio. to correspond with the President, as
it was in New York. In those States, the
Governors acted as the President's corros
pondents and agents. You will remember
that remarkable dispatch of Gen. Dix to
Seymour, saying: "I beg to let you know
that I have troops enough at my command
to take care, not only of the rioters but of
Ladies and gentlemen, I did not come
here to engage in this contest. I only came
to show my solicitude for the success of
the good cause. , Political position has no
charms for me now ; it never had much.
I am getting too gray to think of accept
ing any more honors. I have traveled
thirty or forty miles to-day just to show
niy interest in the.campaign. Wheri at the
opening of the war we found ourselves in,
the new Union party, you chose a Demon
crat as your standard bearer. I fought
the battle, and your votes made me Gover
nor. I did not disappoint you. I made
you a good Governor. [Cheers.]
I Millard myself with you.' The Chi
cago platform is entirely satisfactory, and
you have placed at the head of the Union
party that great and good man who led our
soldiers to victory. There is no man in all
the country that I Would prefer to General
Grant. [Applause.] I have known his
family well. My mother had the teaching
and the training of old Jesse Grant. He
came to live with my mother when twelve
or fourteen years old. When she thought
he was old enough she advised him to go
and learn a trade. He took her advice.
She wanted me to learn a trade, too, but
unfortunately I turned my attention to the
law, and though I made a tolerable fair
lawyer, I have no doubt I would have
made a better blacksmith. That is the
trade my mother wanted me to learn.
I am well acquainted with General
Grant. He possessed every element of
character which should attach you to him.
Ido not speak of his claims as a military
man, but we may all be certain of one
thing, an ordinary man would never have
achieved what he did. Nervous men like
Gov. Seymour and myself would have
abandoned Vicksburg, and in fact several
other places that Grant took by not getting
tired. Ara of all men in this Nation, I re ,
