Democratic Economy. The Democrats
of Ohio held the longest legislative session
on record, beginning in January and run
ning far into May. They took nearly $100,
000 out of the treasury to pay their wages,
and then to hide this waste of money, cut
short he appropriations for the insane and
other unfortunates. What a specimen of
Democracy! Robbing the insane to pay
themselves five dollars a day for waiting to
se,.the result of impeachment, and passing
unconstitutional laws. Not content with
this, the Democratic majority propose to re
assemble in November, and begin a session

is a wrought iron plow-oint, fitting into a

wonderful tales are tuld. Those that have
got bitten fiul that wrought iron points cost
more apiece than eutire share. of cast iron.
A9 these plow-point swindlers are under
stood to be making a hurried sweep up
through the Southern counties of N. York,
in order to get into West Virginia, Penn
sylvania and the Eastern States, farmers
would do w'ell to be on the alert for them.
Papers desirous of saving their patrons'
pockets will direct attention to this swind
ling scheme. It has cost the farmers of the
West about $200,000 the past year.
An Involuntary 'Tribute. United
States five-twenty bouds of the several de
nominations are now in large use in Eu

in such sums as they need and it is reported
find them easier and cheaper of negotiation
than the old arrangemant ot bankers letters
of credit. What an involuntary tribute
this is to the strength and stability of our
free Government, when our paper currency
becomes international money! Where are
the Pendletons and Pomeroys, and Demo
cratic repudiators great and small, in the
face of this magnificent testimony of na

Favor Repudiation. The Pittsburg
Gazette says : The Democratic editors of
Western Pennsylvania, at a meeting recent
ly held in this city, unanimously adopted
resolutions favoring the payment of the
bonds in greenbacks and the nomination of
Pendleton. Similar resolutions would also
have been approved by the recent Conven
tion of the Allegheny county Democracy,
but the bond-holding leaders of the party
succeeded in smothering them. Their dis
creditable scheme to stifle an expression of
the popular sentiment was indignantly de
nounced by delegates on the floor, but with
Removal op the Caimtol. Gen. Lo
gan's proposition to remove the National
Capital westward has developed an unex
pected degree of strength in its favor. Al
though the House would not suspend the
rales, the other day, to receive it, it is pre--dicted
that, when brought up again, as an
isolated question, it will receive a much lar
ger vote. Not a few among prominent
eastern politicians and journalits regard the
movement with evident favor, and there is
a growing sentiment in all ouartersthat this
removal of the seat of government is only a
question of time.
It is said that Hon. S. Linn, President
Judge cf this district, will resign shortly.
Proceedings of the County Convention.
The Convention met according to an

The committee upon resolutions having

Rcsoked, That we will go earnestly into
the canvass and devote all our enemies to

agreed to by the Convention. Mr. Swoope,
who was present, thereupon rose and re
turned his thanks to the Convention for the
proffered honor, but stated t,hat in no event
could he consent to be a candidate for that
or any other position. He was plei'sed,
however, to have such an endorsement of

of his re-nomination.
J. li. M'Kn&Uy moved that, inasmuch as
Mr. Swoope peremptorily declines being a
candidate, his declination be accepted, which
was agreed to.
On motion made by S. J. Row, it was re
solved, That J. B. M'Enally, il. B. Swoope
and A. C. Finney, Esqrs.. be the Congress
ional Conferees with power to substitute;
and it was thereupon moved and determin
ed that the Congressional Conferees be in

journed with the greatest good feeling, and
in full confidence that the November sun

Change of Election. .
Below we publish an Act of Assembly,
passed last winter, changing the time of
holding the township and borough elections
in this county, to the Second Tuesday of
Section 1. Be it enacted, dc, That from
and after the passage of this act, the elec
tion for borough and township officers in the
several boroughs and townships in the coun
ty of Clearfield, shall be held on the second
Tuesday of October in each year.
Sec. 2. The daily pay of judges, inspec
tors, and clerks of election in districts poll
ing less than two hundred votes, shall be
two dollars ; and in districts polling more
than two hundred votes two dollars and
fifty cents. The daily pay of assessors and
constables attending election, shall be one
dollar and fifty cents each, and their attend
ance at the same shall be certified by the
Sec. 3. The return judges shall receive
for making their returns ten ceids per mile
circular, to be computed from the election
house to the Court House in Clearfield, and
f'ro'm thence to their residence ; and the re
turn from the Borough of Clearfield and
Lawrence township shall bo made alternate
ly by the judges thereof ; and the compen
sation therefor shall be one dollar.
Sec 4. All laws and parts of laws incon
sistent herewith be and they are hereby re
pealed. Under this law the township and borough
officers, to serve the ensuing year, will have
to be elected on Tuesday, the 14th day of
October next. The people throughout the
county will bear this fact in mind, and have
their candidates nominated and their tickets
printed or written before election day.
Whether this change in the time of holding
the local elections was wise, or whether it
will prove beneficial in giving us more com
petent and efficient officers, remains to be
seen. In our opinion, the change is of doubt
ful propriety, in that it will have a tendency
to draw party lines so closely as to elect a
greater number of incompetent officers than

The grand Inquest of the County ot Clear

that they have examined the public build

circumstances of the case will admit,except
the cellar under the jail-house, which is in
a miserable condition and unhealthy on ac
count of not being drained or cemented.

Peers erected in the dam, known as Antes'

Bell township, are in a miserable condition
and unsafe for the running of lumber,
The public road from Ansonville, in Jor
dan township, to Jaynesville, in Guelich
township, is considered a nuisance, as near
ly all the bridges are broken through and
unsafe for travel.
We would also recommend lhatthe Com
missioners of the county procure a clock
and have it placed in the tower of the Court
HouBe, as the one in present use is a poor
time-keeper. J. F. Steiner, Foreman.

any engraving which 1 have seen " Gen. How
ard considers -the likeness striking, and the pio
ture life-like." Mr. Huntington, the eminent
artist, says: "It has large, massive style, and
