Localities are celebrated most for the kind of men they produce. National ad vantages are prized as thev are developed, and in all communities, for long series of years, there seems to be a hereditary su periority in the abilities and usefulness oi individuals, which do not recognize char ters for jrreatness, or ask a patent to achieve renown. The great men of Penn sylvania, descending through a long line, not connected by the ties of consanguin ity ; but preserving au affiliation in use fulness and ambition, have appeared in different localities, and have given to each locality in turn a celebrity which went to increase the fame and enhance the dignity of the whole Commonwealth. It ia this fact, first jnvin": a local character to a man and then allowing his usefulness to gain for him a reputation abroad, that really constitutes a great man. It was this that made the elder Burnside bo famous in his day. He had a reputation at home, won a great fame abroad, and has immor talized his name in the J udicial history of the State. It was this fact also that yielded its influence to embalm the name oi IiCSTON, ana maKe nis cnaracier even now a rich examble for the emulation of men in all classes of society. These men and their cotemporaries created a name for their locality, and threw around it the fame that it now possesses. That fame is to be enjoyed by those who inherited it. And thus the glory, grandeur and useful ness of communities, instead of decaying with time, improves with years. Thus in this age, generations mark their depar ture, not by the destruction of the works of men, but by the great improvement in their progress, and the glorious promises of that perfection which the future condi tion of men is daily revealing. We were led to these reflections by an announcement which we made in the Central. Press last week, of a resolution passed by the Republican County Con vention, nominating Andrew G. Curtin for Governor. "With the mere political movement we have nothing to do in the man. this community has much invested, and we but reiterate a fact when we as sert that no man possesses a larger share of public confidence and esteem at home, than Andrew tf. ucrtin. ne is io me manor born. In this locality his very namo is a tower of strength and cither in or out of politics, amid the exciting scenes and contests of his profession or in the reciprocity of the amenities and courtesies of society, Col. Curtin commands the re spect of his fellows, and never fails to win the confidence of the people with whom he comes in contact. There are always men who seem to be born leaders, and he is one of them. lie wins by intuition, as much by the grace of his learning, as by the nery zeal ot his nature. As a lawyer, he .w-u, sagacious, ana when full engaged m a cause, irresistible in his effort. In his professional style, we can compare him only to one man. and that ia himself compliment which few lawyers deserve, if we axe to taKe tne nost of miserable insti tutions of great men that now fill the le gal lista. Educated to the profession at an early age, and graduating under the best masters, we have known the most or dinary men to succeed in business but there is something more than mere bust ness or personal success to be gained sometning more than mere reputation, something higher than the bauble of fame, to be achieved in a contest with men. He who strives alone for applause, will go uown io me grave unsatisfied. A man who labors alone to gather wealth, finds. ia nis oia age, mat nc nas gathered innu nierable sources of annovanccs around him But the man who, while he struggles for position, erects a platform broad and stron enough tor his friends to stand upon, has the satisfaction of witnossinir the food he has accomplished, in the improvement of inose arouna mm. Ana we do not desoend to fulsome flattery in according this kind of success to Andrew G. Curtin. There are old men in this county who feel this sentiment with more force than the one 1. :i j .i wiiu uuw pens 11 ana mere are vounr? men just entering on their careers of an ticipated usefulness, who will acknowledge the force of the example which wo have adduced, and who would rally to his stan- uara, in aisregard of party ties or political oouirauons. Will the People's Party nominate An vn n r n ni . kt. wuKTij i mis is a grave question for an independent iournalLsli out we nave a notion that he is the stron- est man yet brought forward. He can rally two elements, which no other man in the State can command or control. We allude to young men who are iust en tering on politics, and that conservative body of Old Line Whigs who retired from politics with the disbanding of the Whig party. This will be a powerful influence in the next and many future political con tests in Pennsylvania as well as the Union. Joined to it, will be the conservative por- non oi me democratic party, wuien will never airain rally in a distinct organiza tion with the present clique, whioh de rives its power from Administration fa vors, lhese elements, which now look alone to the welfare of the State and Xa- tiun, Col. Curtin can command at home. and from what we know of the man, he can command the same abroad. The Re publican Convention must consider this when they make their nominations. They must reflect that hereafter the mero poli tician cannot hope to impose himself on the people, and that candidates for Exec utive position must be recommended by other than party devotion. Pennsylvania has great interests, and the people are bound to have them recognized by those who aspire to their favor. She has influ ence, and it must be wielded by a man by one who has a knowledge of and a re spect for her resources. Col. Curtin has evinced this knowledge, and proven this respect. While Secretary of State, during Pollock s administration, he gave the highest evidence of his Executive powers, and we are not doing Gov. Pollock the least injustice in asserting that the repu tation which his administration earned for for impartiality and vigor, was as much owing to the energy of Col. Curtin as it was to his own peculiar dignity and sou- venance. xuvery man acquainted with the Secretary's office, understands its multifa rious duties and no man acquainted with Col. Curtin, while occupying that posi tion, will deny to him the highest admin istrative abilities. His zeal and devotion to the system of Common School Educa tion, the present arrangement of which is ; owing to his energies, and the condition of which is as near perfection as possible. None but a Statesman of enlarged views could see the workings of such a system through years. And none but a philan thropist could wait for the slow success of such a system for his reward. And this reward will be only fully meted out when the name of Andrew Greoq Curtin is written over the door of every school- house in the cities, towns, villages and hamlets of the State of Pennsylvania. Ave are justified in thus alluding to one of the most eminent citizens of Centre county. Ho is in the hands of his politi cal friends, and the Convention which will possess the nominating authority will also have the power to discriminate be tween him and other good men attached to their organization. Rut as a political- v disinterested observer of the signs of the times, and looking forward to their success, with hope only so far as that suc cess will benefit the people, we earnestly trust that Andrew G. Curtin may be the People's candidate for Governor in I SOU. SELECT MISCELLANY. Power of a Mother's JVanie. It is hard for the most abandoned crim inal to lorget a mothers love, or to be in sensible to the memories of a pure and i . . ...... nappy nonie in childhood. A writer in the Time describes a visit to th Phil-i delphia Penitentiary, in which he witnes n tttX tt - c . r i x iL i , au ju lci view ueiween me waruen ana young man about to enter on his impris onment : We passed on the ante-room ain. where we encountered a new comer, who ij.. ... . ' uaa juscreacnea the prison as we entered. He had been sent up for five years on a cnarge of embezzlement. He was attired in the latest style of V 1 , ..... r iosnion, ana possessed all the iioncfuilcn.ee and careless appearance of a erenteel row dy. He twirled his watch-chain, looked particularly knowing at a couple of ladies wno cnanceu to be present, and seemed utterly indifferent about himself or the predicament he was placed in. The war den read his commitment, and addressed him with : "Charles, I am sorry to see thee here." "It can't be helped old fellow." "What is thy age, Charles i" "Twenty-three." "A Philadelphian ?" "Well, kinder, and kinder not." "Thee has disgraced thyself sadly." "Well, I ain't troubled, old Btick." "Thee looks not like a rogue." "Matter of opinion." "Thee was well situated?" "Yes, well enough." "In good employ?" "Well, so so." "And thee has parents 7" "Yes." "Yorhaps thee has a mother, Charles?" The convict had been standing during the brief dialogue perfectly unconcerned and reckless, until this last interrogatory was put. Had a thunderbolt struck him. he could not have fallen more suddenly than he did when the name of " mother" fell on his ear. He sank into a chair a torrent of tears gushed from his eyes the very fountain of his heart seemed to have burst on the instant. He recovered par tially, and said imploringly to the warden : "Don't sir. for God's sake, don't call her name in this dreadful place ! Do what you may with me. but don't mention that name to mc !" There were tears in other eves brsirlft the prisoner's, and an aching silence per vaded the group which surrounded the unfortunate convict. The black cap was drawn over his eves. He was led to an adjoining apartment and stripped and shortly afterwards ho re-ap-pcarcd on the corridor. He Dassed silent ly in charge of a deputy keeper to a lone ly cell in a distant part of the prison, the door creaked on its hinges, he disappeared, the chain from the outsids bolts and Charles was a close prisoner for five years to come. A neighboring contemporary thus meets his "devil's" importunities for copy: "Copy ? You imp of darkness, have the audacity to ask fur copy this hot weather?

Balky Horses Bat .KV Maktvii farmer of an irascrible temper came into possession of a very fine animal, of most docile disposition. When the farm er purchased him, he was highly pleased with his bargain. For some weeks the animal worked admirably; but as the owner became accustomed to the brute, his irritable temper would display itself, and occasionally in his anger he would punish him severely for the most trifling fault. In a few months the animal became irrita ble also, balky, and at times quite unrully. The farmer, who could not see how much injury he was doing himself, continued his brutality. The result was as might be expected a really valuable brute was spoiled. He became nervous and dan gerous. The farmer was in despair, and would have been glad could he have found a purchaser for him. A neighbor of the farmer, who saw how he had maltreated the beast, offered to accept him at the owner's terms, which were not hard. Now, mark the end. The new proprietor was a man of kind but firm disposition. He at once commenced treating the ani mal as if he could be reached by reason. The horse experiencing a difference be tween his present and former treatment, soon recovered his temper. He ceased to fear and tremble at every one who ap proached him, and in less time than it took to spoil him, he was brought back to his original docile disposition. now it was Done. The name of the man carried over Niagara on Blondin's back is Harrv Molcard. He is BlrmHIn's agent, and is every way a larger man than Blondin, who is rather slender, and and not tall. Molcard has not been accus tomed to the rope, but he had such confi den ce in Blondin that he resolved to ven ture. When Blondin started on the re turn he had tied on each side of his tbio-Iia a semi-circular piece of iron ; th osr bii re ported the legs of Molcard, and balanced tUn -:,-Vt 4' 1," 1 3 T1.1" - 1 tut i;ii;ui ui uia uuuy. xionain saia the cause of his stonninr so ofton nn Mg r i o " return was that the strap which held the balancing pole, being covered with wool en, rubbed the back of his neck and made it very sore.

There was a rope tied to the waist of each, and it was cngnged that if either fell, the other was to throw himself on the opposite side of the rope. What a Good Newspaper May Do. Show us an intelligent family of boys and girls, and we shall show you a family where newspapers and periodicals are plentiful. Nobody who has been without these 6ilent private tutors can know their educating power for good or evil. Have you never thought of the innumerable topics of discussion which they suggest at the breakfast-table, the important public measures with which, thus early, our chil dren become familiarly acquainted ; great philanthropic questions of the day. to which unconsciously their attention is awakened, and the general spirit of intel ligence which is evoked by these quiet visitors? Anything that makes home pleasant, cheerful and chatty, thins the haunts of vice, and the thousand and one avenues of temptation, should certainly be regarded, when we consider its influ ence on the minds of the young, as a great moral and social blessing.

A tear was vissblo in the aeronaut a eye as he assured her that it was impossible for him to take her high enough to see her papa. Lafayette JottmaL New Paper. A French gontlcman,an amateur in chemistry, has discovered a new mode of making paper. It is simply by boiling slices of wood with a certain quantity of mineral and vegetable alkali. It tho statement of the inventor may be relied upon, who intends to.praetico his method on a large scale, he can produce from fifty-four kilogrammes of slices of firewood, and five kilogrammes of alkali, a ream of very large paper as white as snow and as fine as silk.
