we must confess that Catawissa is ahead in
this article of fruit.

great deal of money, in the course of a year,
if their will be careful to natronize the basi-

experience in this town, and our friends will
find it so in the end. There are tricksters
in every kind of business who deceive for
awhile. Read our a'dvertiaements and you
will know where to go.
ifear what the local editor of the
Patriot and Union says of one of our young
m Columbia County Democrats:
Personal. We are g!a:l to notice upon
bur streets Col. Wellington II. Ent, of Co
lumbia County. Col. Ent is one of tho
ablest young men in the State, and wa3 one
of the most gallant soldiers of the late y. ar.
He is v!rmly devoted to Democratic pri aci-
Sles, and enthusiastic in his support of our
istinguished nominee, Hiester Clymer.
tLV Make your business suit to come to
town on next Saturday, and you can see the
great' street display of Howes' European
Circus . gratis. Our office is up stairs, on
Main Street, has an entire glass front, with
opening doors what a magnificent opportu
nity to pay the Printer and see the show. If,
kfter witnessing the exhibition on the streets,
you desire to pay fifty cents, and see the Cir
cus, we have rid objections, but really trunk
you had bettergive it to the poor Printer who
furnishes you with a new paper every week.
tT Dr. J, d. Harrison, of this town,
has placed his colt, ".Wild Warrior," in
charge of our friend Jackson Dteler, of Mt
Pleasant towns-hip, for the purpose of hav
ing ii used to tke various services of man.
We understand that the" Doctor has lately
been offered nine hundred and fifty dollars
for this blooded colL
Mr. Breler's" patience is well adapted to the
breaking of co!t3 and we know" him to have
inuch experience ia the business. Surely the
Doctor hza made a irhe move in cornrarttlns
tgL. We desire that all subscriptions to
the Star of the North be immediately
settled. . W. H. Jacob y.
BST" Our friends who are taking interest
in furnishing us with local news, will please
accept our thanks.
S?" By reference to our candidate column
it will be seen that the list ia still increas
ing; 3?" lt Had the election been held on the
poor house question," we have repeatedly
heard remarked, "two or three weeks ear
lier, half the townships or more would have
accepted the bill." How it came that a large
number of petitions, numerously signed by
citizens of the different townships, were sent
to the Legislature, praying for the passage
of the very law they rejected at the polls,
we can't understand ! Some of the very
men that placed their names to the petitions
were the most ardent opposcrs of the bill
when it came before the people !
rST" What has become of that old life
long Democrat who used to stand in the
Republican office and deal out, at retail and
wholesale rates, slander and abuse of the
Democratic party ? He came quite , handy
to the editor of that paper. Scarce an is
sue of his paper appeared that did not con
tain some invaluable information for his
poor, deluded readers. He used to tell how
the ranks of the Democracy were breaking
arid falling fast to pieces, and of how much
dissatisfaction existed in the party. Suppose
he fixup a life-long Republican, or in other
and more appropriate words, a life-long Ab
olitionist, and tell his readers what sad havoc
the Johnson men are making in his party,
how Andrew Johnson is making them "loy
al," and what their chances are for electing
No Prefix Geary Governor of this State.
. Gold is quoted at 170. This is not
now the result of inflated currency. Govern
ment is retrenching the circulation, and in
proportion gold and the currency should ap
proximate, but they do not ; why? It is ac
counted for in the fall of government securi
ties in Europe. It is said that $75,000,000
of five-twenties will be returned to this coun
try from Germany this month. , This will be
felt in the nominal rise in the price of gold.
while the bonds will remain pretty much as
now quoted, thus throwing the apparent de
preciation upon the currency. While the
government was in the full tide of greenback
printing, government bonds kept pace with
gotd, and paper depreciated. When gov
ernment ceased and promised retrenchment,
then gold fell and the ' circulating medium
rose. Now, if the current continues, there
will bea wider margin between gold and bonds,
and still a wider one between gold and the
27 "It is by no means a pleasant duty"
for the editor of the Republican, downtown,
to give up the office of Revenue Assessor.
That's what's the matter. It is no difficult
taak for him to abuse Andrew Johnson, for
he never liked him any too well. In the first
place, Mr. Johnson's past political record
ii too Democratic for the Republicans to ap
plaud ; and in the next place, his leniency
towards southern gentlemen is something
they cannot sanction. He has a mind of
his own, and docs not allow corrupt men to
do his thinking, which is more than could be
said of hi3 predecessor, who allowed himself
t be handled and shaped as the potter would
hi day. This is what troubles the Black
Abolitionists at this time. They cannot use
the President to destroy the Government,
the job they undertook while his predecessor
lived, but mu-t support his "policy," other
wise off goes their heads. " To oppose the
President is treason" and that, too, worries
The Senipr editor of this paper offers for
sale an "order" given by Grovesteen & Co.",
of New York, to the amount of one hun
dred dollars, to be applied as part pay
ment on one of their three hundred dollar
Piano Fortes, which we will dispose of
upon the most reasonable conditions. This
firm has the reputation of making the best
instruments in this country. Their instru
ments received premiums at the World's
Fair held in England, the United States
Fair at Chicago, and the Great Exhibition
in New York, a few years since. They sell
at prices ranging from $300 to $."00. Any
person wishing to purchase a first-class Pi

do well to purchase our "order" ou Grove

Sj-Singular Suicide. -On Monday last,
near Light Street, Mr. George L. Johnson,
a man well known in this count)', committed
suicide by shooting himself with a pistol.
The facts given us, by a friend from the
place where it happened, are as follows : It
appears that he had considerable money
stolen from him at different times and places,
which caused him much trouble, and at times
lie seemed to suffer from a derangement of
the intellect, and on last Monday his wife
noticed, in his conduct, symptoms of insan
ity. He told his wife that he had found a
nice jKstol, and they went together up stairs
to find it, but failed, and both came down
stairs again. After going up stairs the third
time to look for the pistol he produced it
and said, "it is loaded," his wife insisting
t'aat he should discharge it out of the win
dow, or, let her. lie refused to comply with
her request, but said he would go down and
let one of the boys shoot it off. While going
down the steps he pointed the pistol to his
breast fired killing himself instantly.
EST The march of improvement is stead
ily going forward in this place : A. M. Ru
pert is building an extension to his already
large Tin and Stove Shop, on Main Street,
Dr. Jacob ScnxrrLER is erecting an ad
dition to his new brick house, on the corner
of Fifth and Centre Streets.
Dr. H. C. Hower is putting in an entire
new glass front in his store room occupied
by Henry Glger, on Slain Street This im
provement will add much to the appearanee
of the building, besides make the store room

We see notice in the Harrisburg
Patriot and Union, that an informal meet
ing of the "boys in blue," from every county
of the State, favorable to tbe election of
Hiester Clymer, will be held in Harris
burg, on Thursday the 28th inst. At this
meeting arrangements will bo made for the
holding of a regular Clymer. Soldiers' Con
vention, at such time and place ns may seem
most suitable. A g3od turn-out is anticipated.
We would suggest the sending of a couple
of Delogates from this county. We have
a good representation of Soldiers in this
county and Clymer men at that. Let our
Colonels, Captain Lieutenants and Ser
geants, take the initiative steps in this
matter, and send representatives to the in
formal meeting on the 28th. The holding
of a Soldiers' Convention is a good idea and
should be carried out. It is to counteract
the Pittsburg concern held by the Gearyites.
Fairs and Festivals.
The . Ladies' Fair and Festival, lately held
at the Hartman Building, for the benefit of
the Presbyterian Church, was liberally pa
tronized. Undoubtedly the Presbyterians
were deserving of this generosity, as they
have not, for a long time, resorted to this
mode of receiving money for the support of
the church. Of late these church Fairs and
Festivals have become a raging epidemic in
our land, keeping church members, both
old and young, almost constantly employed,
notin the christ-like work of redeeming fallen
man, but inlnanufacfhring material for these
toy-shops, which go to grace the churches
and members with external gifts and baubles.
We hope the pastors of the different churches
of this place, will attend to this business,
and not let these church Fairs and Festivals
become one of those offensive subjects of
