JE5F The election passed off at this place
with the usual amount of excitement, but
no disturbances of a serious character.
The largest vote ever polled in this Town
ship was polled on Tuesday. The poll was
545, and in the increase the Democracy
gained. The Radical majority was cut down

CQi- Something new under the sun our
young friend, James W. Chambcrlin, of this
place, has opened up a new clothing and
gentlemen's furnishing store, in the lower
room of the Hartman building, on the north
west corner of Market Square. He has a
fine and large assortment of clothing for
both men and boj-3, which he offers to tho
public on the most reasonable terms for
cosh. Give him a trial. See advertisement
in another column of to-day's paper.
Inviting Assassination. A disloyal
radical sheet in Indianapolis shortly before
the arrival of President Johnson in that
city, intimated that it would bear "with re
signation" any "disposition of Providence"
that would remove President Johnson.
These are the men, says a contemporary that
howl about the New Orleans riots. They
shoot white men in cold blood at Indianap
olis, aud invito murdcr3 to assassinate the
tS The Post Ofnce, of this place, was
removed on Monday of last week, to the
new building erected by John li. Pursel,
few doors cast of McKelvy's store. We
can't say that the office is an improvement
on the one just vacated ; but we endorse the
removal for several reasons, viz : It is more
convenient to our office ; not at a place where
noisy crowds are likely to congregate ; aud
more, the office is now held by a Conserva
tive man a man who supported Conserva
tive candidates at our late election, for office.
The office is now held by an ardent support
er of President Johnson, and not by a man
who will, or ever has, 'used his influence
against the President's policy. Abolition
ism is dying fast and hard, in our midst as
well as throughout the State.
Fire. A destructive fire occurred near
Centralis oa Monday night last, in which
two persons were burned to death. A house
occupied by a family of the name of Taylor
took fire about eleven o'clock on the night
stated, all being in bed but one man, and it
is said the fire originated from the explosion
of a coal oil lamp, which he was in the act
of filling. The flames from the burning oil
soon set the building on fire and two of its
sleeping inmates, a woman and child, were
burned to death. Several others were se
verely burned. We have been unable to
learn the full particulars of the horrible af
fair. Ashland Advocate.
A Man Shot. Quite an excitement 'was
created in Sunbury on Thursday morning of
last week, by the shooting of Andrew Meix
el, by Samvel Irrin, a lad about 17 year?.
Mr. Meixel was in Irvin's lot getting apples,
and as the apples had been stolen from the
family nearly every year, young Irvin puplic-
ly said that he would shoot any ono caught
in the Inf. ; Getting up in the morning he
saw a man under the trees and fired at him
with a shot gun the shot taking effect in
his head and right side. lie is not, at this
writing, dead, but there are little hopes of
his recovery. Sunbury Democrat.
The Old Swiss Bell- Ringers' Con
ceet Retuun from Eckope. The cele
brated troupe' of Alleghanians, Vocalists and
Bell Players, returned from Europe a few
day3 since, where they have been very suc
cessful. ; .
la January last, while in England, they
appeared before her Majesty, Queen Victo
ria, the Prince and Princess of Wales, and
the whole of the Royal Family at "Windsor
Castle.' .. ' .
Our. American Minister in London, com
plimented the troupe on their great achieve
ments as American artists, in an autograph
letter to their secretary, Mr. Waldron ; and
in fact the whole public and the press, both
secular and religious, lavished upon them
the. most flattering enconiums of approval.
We are pleased to announce to our read

TriE Rebuilding or Portland. It has
been estimated that it would take eight hun
dred million feet of lumber to rebuild the
burnt district in Portland, Maine, or two
years production irom the woods in the
State. The Bangor Courier says that a
practical lumberman estimated that, taking
one building with another, such a3 will prob
ably be built in Portland, upon a liberal cal
culation, about twenty-five thousand feet will
Lbe an average for each. So that eight hun
dred millions of lumber would be a supply
tor thirty-two thousand houses or other
buildings. The number burned in Portland
was abbut seventeen hundred, so that less
than fifty millions, or about one-fourth of
the annual survey of Bangor alone, will be

Another Express Robbery.
Cincinnati Oct. 7. The eastward-bound
car of the Adams Express Company, on the
Ohio and Mississippi Railroad, was entered
near Seymour last night. The keys were ta
ken from the messenger, and one safe was
riSed and another throvi from the car. It
was found to-day in the woods, uninjured.
The total loss, is $12,000 to $15,000. The
company offer a reward for the arrest of the
Dan Rice's Elephant on a Raid. The
Utica Observer fays :
The big elephant attached to Dan Rice's
Circa, that exhibited at Utica last Saturday,
concluded to go on a rail last night. His
keeper confined him in the tent, on the com
mons, back of the reservoir, for the night,
and then thinking his charge would behave,
went to his hotel. In the middle of the
night the police at the station-house were
aroused by a man rushing in so excited that
he could hardly speak. He declared that
the wild beasts had broken loose, and that,
headed by the elephant, they had made an
attacc on uorn Hill : una that the citizens
of that locality were fleeing wildly for their
lives, and that he had barely escaped to tell
the tale !
The driver of his clephantship was aroused,
and, or) proceeding to the iccnc of action,
the elephant was found in a garden, corner
of Steuben and Eagle streets, quietly munch
ing cabbage, turnips, and other "garden
eass." Somebody who watched his motions
says fences were no protection at all. He
"would quietly pick up a length of fence and,
lay it one side, and then "lay into' the
coveted cabbages. In a short time the con
tents cf three gareens had been disposed of,
and he was looking about for more provi
sions, when the keeper arrived and relieved
tho anxiety of tho inhabitants of that local
Why Southern Crops are Short.
A South Carolina correspondent of the
New York Times explains the causes of the
short crops in the South in this way :
In regard to the hour3 cf labor, the re
constructed freedmen wanted a decided un
provement upon the eight hour system for
which the working men of the North are
clamoring. They were willing enough to
take their places in the field at sunsise, as
formerly ; but they absolutely refused to re
fused to remain at work later than eleven
o'clock in the morning, at which time they
would complain that the sun was getting too
hot for them to work, and systematically
drop off to their quarters. Bes ides this,
none of them could be induced, under any
circumstances, to work on Saturdays, and
not a few took holiday every Friday, also.
The male field hands at first would not allow f .
their wives to work, but after a few months
their uxorious gallantry gave way to the hard
argument of necessity, when they found that
their own earnings were inadequate to the
support of their families. Another great
draw-back to the efficiency of the hands was
their unwillingness to work the plantation
as a whole, a3 they used to under the old
system. Then each gang of hands, wheth-
fvnntv. attended to the culture of a fixed
portion of the plantation every day. Now.
eac.fi hand insists upon having his allotted
section, which he cultivates more or less in
definitely ; and thus if a hand happens to be
sick or absent from any cause, his task is
colly left unperformed by his fellow-loborers,
and of course the, neglected section suffers.
There are other habits and peculiarities
which the Sea Island negroes have acquired
since emancipation, less hmrtful than those I
have enumerated, but more ridiculous.

tne war. 1 ni I'mslraies the character of the lead

the bravecy of men, the pluck of our heroes, the ro
