There never was a time in the history of
the Government when it was more necessa
ry for its friend to meet and take counsel
together. Let all who are in favor of sus
.taiuing a loyal Congress all wh.i are op
ened to the wretched policy of Andrew
Johnnon all who are willing to follow the
lead of GRANT, and SHERIDAN, and
SICKLES, the noblest heroes of the war
ill who deire to preserve the glorious re
sult fur which so many thousands of gallant
men fought, and bled, and died, attend and
eontribute their fshare to the success of our
ticket, and the triumphant election of that
upright Judge, the c .-
HON. HENRY W. WILLIAMS,
to the Supreme Bench. Let every loyal
man arouse, ahake off his lethargy, and be
m the alert, remembering that while those
twin demons alcohol and treason run riot

Had on Roaches. Take ten cents worth
f pulverized Prussian blue, mix it with a
little flour and sugar, put the mixture on a
piece of paper, and then lay the paper on
the floor where the roaches generally run.
Try it for a week, and they will disappear.
Prussian blue contains the poison that ends
State Fate. The Penn'a State Fair will
be held at Pittsburg, from the 24th to the

ForND Dead. Mr. Samuel Peffley, aged
about 60 years, of Karthaus township, was
found dead on the road between Karthaus
nd Snow Shoe, on Friday, August 30th.
He was engaged in hauling lime, and it is

"o, by the sudden sinking of the wheels into
deep mud hole, and injured ' to such an
"tent as to cause immediate death.

Clarion Cocntv. Oh Thursday, Aug.
29th, the bam of .John M'Kean. of Burrell
township, was destroyed by fire, with all its
contents wheat, oats, ha y, wagons, gears,
etc. It is supposed to have been the work
of an incendlaty. ',
Centre Cocnty. On Wednesday eve
ning, August 28th, a son of Henry Keene,
of Penn township, aged about 13 years, was
driving a team of horses toward Millheim,
when they took fright and ran away, throw
ing him from the wagon, which ran over his
head, injuring him in such a manner as to
cause death in less than an hour.
The Teachers County Institute will
be . held in Curwensville, commencing on
Monday, Sept. 23d, 1867, and: continue
one week. The law makes it a duty for
teachers to attend. It is hoped Directors
and friends of education generally, will be
in attendance. . G. W. Snyder,
" . . County Superintendant.
The Election Proclamation. In an
other column will be found ithe '.'Election
Proclamation" of Sheriff Faust. In our
opinion.'that officer h;is omitted one impor
tant Act of. Assembly in his proclamation
the act disfranchising deserters from the mil
itary and naval service of the United States
In other counties, so far as we have noticed,
that law is published by the Sheriff. Wheth
er this omission in the publication of the
proclamation in this county is a preconcert
ed political - movement, designed to induce
deserters living in other counties to emigrate
hither and exercise the privilege of voting
despite the law, we d j not assert ; but that
such will be the practical result.-wo have no
doubt. The ignoring of one plain law of
the Slate, will lead to the violation of oth
era In tact, is opening wide the door to.
and virtually offering , a . premium , for, all
kinds ot fraud upon ihe ballot-box in this
county. .But, be this as it may, one thing
is t-ure,' that our political opponents feel tha
certain and overwhejniing defeat is their
doom on the Second Tuesday of October
next, and hence they are making every ef
fort to swell their vote to its utmost extent,
by fair and foul means, and thus reduce the
Republican majority in the State as much
as possible. More-anon, .
