A Singular Ictltlcn.'

r- i J
rj.irts of this" cnunty to secure the ViMiioval
of j the county scat- from " El.enshiirjr. to
JohiiKtown. Let the aiithor he
may, werdcsirc to treat him with courtesy.
"Yet" one "of these, thinjjs.ia certain : Either
has violated all claims to courtesy by
phiin and reckless disrecrard for truth, or
. rhwi,' through some causo or other, is clear
of ordinary responsibility for what he has
uttered. We had not intended to .enter
upon a discussion of the merits and de
merit of the proposed change, and shall
not now, only so far as is necessary to ex-
pose some of the more glaring misreprc
Heutations set forth in. this petition. Nor
would we undertake this task were the
statements of the petition to go before the
people of this county alone. They are so
foolbb, so childish, and exaggerated, that
the author, though possibly persuading
himself to believe them, could not induce
any intelligent man, woman, or child, in
the county to do likewise, liut they '-must
go before others, who aro strangers to the
topography of our county and to -nearly
all other facts or data relating to the pres--cnt
controversy. . ' ' ,
Ebeniburg is located in the geographi
cal center of Cambria county, and is acces
. sible from all parts thereof by roads as
- good as are ordinarily found in other sec-.
Ntions of the State, making due allowance
of climate, soil, topography, and length, of
time the county has been settled. "It has
good communication by rail with Johns-
town and the greatest portion of the east
ern border of the county. It is the most
. convenient point to be obtained for the
' people in the central and northwestern
portions of the county. To make Johris
town the county seat would be.;to require
"tho citizens of north western Cambria to
travel from forty to sixty miles to attend
-to their legal business.' Yet tho writer of
this petition hesitates. not, to "say that "the
scat of justice, us now k)cai;d, is entirely
out of the way for alhthe practical . pur
i poses of a county-seat" these being the
writer's exact words, excepting that he or
naments his text with a greater abundance
This petition also, sets forth that if the
people were not. "eornpelled lo - transact
their,-judicial and county. -business- at
Ebensburg,' they would have no occa
that place." At
the first Monday in March, the Register
and . Recorder of the county will present
sozae fourteen accounts of executors, ad
miiiistrators, and guardians for confirma
tion. At least eight out of these fourteen
arc from the center arid north of the county.
Five civil cases will be on the list for trial.
Of the.se five, three are from northern, and
one from southern Cambria. The remain
ing case can hardly be claimed by either
section. Twenty-five cases will be on the
list for the second week. Of these, not over
five, if that many, aro lrom sections known
as comprising the south of the county.
At the last September sessions, some
thirty two civil cases were down, of which
;at least twentyjwere from the northern
portion of the county." We admit, freely
and cheerfully,- that our friends south have
a greater population and more wealth than
wc. Rut it must be remembered that the
bulk of that wealth is centered in one vast
corporation, the largest corporation in the
State aside from the Penna. railroad. We
mean not to say one harsh word, or any
word springing from envy or enmity, but
only to speak what every thoughtful man
Knows 10 be simple trutn, wncn we say
that the presence of so large a capital un
dcr one control in a community of .fifteen
thousand means an unequal distribution
.of. wealth ; and the more unequally wealth
is distributed, the less often will courts and
juries hi required to sit' in the trial of
civil causes. In northern Cambria, the
extremes of wealth and poverty are seldom
seen. Few are very poor, and. none very
rich. Nearly all are well doing. In this
lies the entire secret of the excess of civil
'causes in the northern over the southern
portion of the county. There are thirteen
members of the bar resident in Ebcnsburir
and eight iir Johnstown.-. Yet it is a il
no one will dispute, that the legal business
vf the southern districts passing through
the hands of attorneys resident in Ebens-
burg, is a mere bagatelle. As to the mer
-cintile business of the place, wo are bold
.. fosnv that we have business houses as
. x . it ii
C3UiDietc in an ticir appointments ana as
.varied in their assortment as can be found
in any towir of two thousand pcoplo in thi?
State. The average daily expenses of one
single firm arc ovop thrco hundred dollars.
Wc publish two weekly papers, and Jolins-
.town the same number. - In point of abil
ity, variety of matter, and the extent of
Ihcir circulation, they will not shrink f. jui
comparison, with, their. Johp..town.cot,eni
porarie8. There" are now . lying in our
lumber yards awaiting shipment more than
four millions feet of lumber, varying in
value from :jeigh teen. to sixty dollars per
thausamh ;the-gathered .' surplus over and
above the daily shipments.. Each secular
lay of the year, a train averaging six cars
carries away the products of our mills,
consisting of poplar, ash, cherry, pine, &c,
as also cooper's stuff, barrels, flooring, and
quantities of .hay-rake, shovel. ' hoe and
brush handles, &c. " . ... .
As regards population, there are at least'
six thousand persons,' nearly all of whom,,
excepting those residing in the borough,
are engaged in agricultural pursuits," who
make Ebensburg their market and com
mercial center. Tho districts known as
comprising "Northern Cambria" contain
about thirteen thousand people, estimating
six persons to each voter. Among these
twelve or thirteen thousand people are
probably one-half of all the free holders of
the county. At any rate, not far from
one-half. Nearly this . entire population
holds direct and important relations with
Ebensburg, and would do bo whether the
county seat or not.1 There is no floating
population) or speaking with strict accura
cy, it ds bq small as not to be worthy of
consideration, within these districts. The
entire people have a direct personal inter
est in the question at issue. On the other
hand, a vast ratio of the population in the
southern districts have very little or per
haps no direct personal interest at all in
the matter.. Very " many who tcok
part - in the election of last fall, - will be
residents elsewhere by next fall. or sooner..
Nevertheless, this petition recklessly and
blunderingly says "There is no community
of interests , between :the iaterests .of-thef
county seat and the interests of any other
Dortion of the county.'' an instance of
very queer English. And again, "In going
there, the people go away from all business:
in coming away from there they return to
business." "It is difficult of access -from
all portions of the county, as though it
were more difficult to come fronP Johns
town by rail to JPbensburg. tkato go from
Susquehanna, Chest, Carroll, Alleghany,
Munster and other townships throvgh-l,h-en&burg
to Johnstown. Rut here, is the
climax, "It (Johnstown) is easier of access
to the remotest, portion of the county than
Ebensburg," rthat is, it is not so easy to
travel " fifteen or twenty miles as if you
would first travel that distance and then
go twenty-five miles further J ?The petition
also sets .forth Johnstown? t7 be. city'
while the. fact is notorious that - itsjpeopld
persistently refuse to obtain a city, charter,
although to do so, would, afford opportuni
ty for the quick disposal of many "of its;
criminal cases. - -
Never, indeed, did we see so many mis
statements in -s6""stnall a space. 'We have
neither jealousy nor enmity toward Johns-'
town. We rejoice in its prosperity, and
hope it may continue. Nor do we attach'
any blame or. censure to any 'honest effort
to advance then? 'own interests. Rut we
trust we still have loft some respect for
truth and fairness, and this petition is not
truthful nor fair, and is in striking con
trast with the remonstrance of our citizens
against the proposed removal, which is fair
in its stafements, truthful and dignified.
Our Friend fVilsion.
.The following is an extract from the
proceedings of the State House of Repre
sentatives on Wednesday, 17th inst. :
Mr. Wilson, (Alleghenj county,) continu
ing, faia that one. little paper tit bamornv
county bad the impudence to' attack bim, a
copy of wbich he had received lrom the d-
itor, who doubtless hoped to receive nve dol-
lrs for telling the truth afterwards. The
clerk would bear him witness that he had
urged him n jaore than one occasion to em
ploy men who would not 6tay away when du
ty demanded his presence. - "-
Mr. Torter, of Cambria, asked what paper
he alluded to.
Mr. Wilson said he believed it was printed
t Ebensburg. He did not recollect its name,
never saw it before and would perhaps never
see it again.
The honorable ; George does us more
hminr than he bestows on himself.-- If
only a five dollar bill separates us from the
truth, we keep pretty close company with
that virtue. We can assure George that,
judging from his own words and actions
in the pasting and-folding business, the
gap between him and the truth is a gulf
somewhat similar to that between Dives
and Lazarus. We acknowledge to one
mistake. Every material statement we
made about this' disciple of Solon, to "at
tack" whom is 6uch great "impudence,"
we took from a communication published,
by him, under his own signature, in the
Pittsburg Commercial of the 23d of last
January. And now, he tells us wc did
not tqoak the truth ! Alas ! for Wilson!
What poor stuff this human frame is made
of. J Jo failed, too, send us a copy of his
crmi remarks. Was it out of regard to
our feelings ?
Oua State Legislature, it' U believed by
those capable of judging, will remain in ses

clutching at a straw for support, or crying
out for the helping hand of some humane
friend to save him from a watery grave, he
who has -had committed to his protecting

Congress, is trembling for its fate while,
imploring for its immediate consideration.
It is not improbable that, in nine cases out
of ten, his loss would prove to be the "jpeo
ple's gain. " V : '
It is to bo regretted that so many .very
important public measures have been left
in an unfinished stage, to this late day of
the session. All whyare familiar with
legislation know, thatwhat are technic
ally styled "snakes" wind themselves into,
and coil themselves up under the exterior
of bills brought forward in the hurly-burly
haste which invariably marks the proceed
ings at the closing of the term of our Na
tional or State ' legislatures. The appro
priation bills must ' be passed, that the
wheels of . government be kept inmotion.
There are, however, others of urgent neces
sity, which can not possibly be reached
between this and the 4th proximo.- i It is
also to be borne in mind, that all bills-passed
within the last ten days of the session,
if not approved by the Executive, can be
"pocketed" by him, and thereby prevented
from being passed into laws by a; two-
thirds vote, notwithstanding his objections.
The Internal Reyenne tax-bill, - making
some essential changes in the law as it now
stands, is in the possession of 'the Senate.
It. is possible,-if not probable," that it 'will
not be reachedalthough its friends' express

The Army Appropriation bill gave rise,
during its discussion in the Ilouse, to
spirited debate. Mr. Rutler, of Massachu
setts, made strenuons efforts to have"tke
army immediately reduced in the npnb1"
of officers and men, without regrd6 : the
Dresent jor prosvectife' exigencies" tpf the
service. l-ue sense ot.tne ilouse was op-
posed to tnis sudden reduction, m iew oil tell-tale sensation on his olfactories betrays
the difficulties still existing in' the upre-U,A-0nr9 siv TPVh.r.t has tatpn Th
constructed States, and the necessity of
Keeping m wie neia, . ior. a .unie u u,
large force in the Indian country. The
amendment of Mr. Rutler was. voted down,
and the following, offered by Jr. Rlame,
61 3Iaine, adopted in its stead : .
And be it- further enacted, That,- until the
military force is reduced to twenty regiments
of infantry, five regiments of cavalry, and
five "regiments .of artill.ery. no new commis
sions f pall be issued in any regiment ; and the
Secretary of.War is hereby directed t con
solidateregiments as rapidly as the require
ments of the public service and the reduction
of the number of officers will permit,-- -until
the afore named .minimum is reached., . .
And be it further enacted, That, until Other
wise directed bj law, there stall be no new
appointments and no. promotions in the Ad
jutant General's Department, in the Inspector
General's Department, in the l'ay Department,
in the Quartermaster's Department, in the
Commissary Department, in the Ordnance De
partment, or in the Medical Department.
The bill, as amended, passed the House
by a very large majority.
It is generally understood that the treaty
made with the English Government, by
Minister Reverdy Johnson, for the settle
ment of the Alabama claims will be reject
ed by the Senate, while that made by Gen
Cushing, with the Government of Colum
bia, for the right of way to construct a ship
canal acrosss the Isthmus of Darien will
be ratified. It is instructive to ponder
upon the contrast which characterized the
diplomacv that . resulted in effecting these
treaties. r Hob-nobbing, beef-eating," wire-
guzzling, windy-speaking, knee-bending,
and humiliating sycophancy marked each
step of our Minister to the Court pi' ot.
James, in the negotiations ..which 'ended
in this abortion called a treaty. How dif
ferent was the course of Gen. Cushing,-
The first intimation the public has had of
tne ODjecb oi nis mission, is me announce
ment of his success, in making -'a treaty,
which will be attended by immeasurably
greater benefits to this , country, than any
thai coma, oe nopeu ior iruui uie treaty
with England. ' ; -
The. Senate has under consideration the
House bill for the repeal of the tcuure-of-
office act. There seems to be some differ
ence of opinion among Republican Sena
tors, as to the propriety of the enUre re-
noal of the law. Some advocate its' modi
fication instead of its repeal. Jn the
discussions on this question, the political,
friends of Gen. Grant have, one and all,
reiterated their declarations of confidence
in his integrity and patriotism, but 4t is
held, by many Senators, that legislation
on this subject should ' have in vie, that
what has happened under, the. present 'ad
ministration -may' occur under future ad
ministrations, and that it would be unwise
to remove the law of restraint in toto.
They, therefore, advocate the modification
of the law, iii accordance with' the' report
of the Judiciary Committee "of the Senate,
whila disavowing any want of confidence
in the lVesidcnt elect. On the other baud,
it 'is said, that it-is due to Geu. Grant to
sin thithe has been selected as the
ilenositArv of J trust, which his constitu-
ftnts tnov w;n be discharged honestly and
faithfully that the people, in conferring
the-"ptwer, imposed the 'respemstbthfy ot
using it properly and. that it is meet and
just to remove restrictions which were en
acted under peculiar circumstances,, none
of which" will exist on the inauguration of
the" new administration.' Such are the
opposing opinions presented. it win,
probably,' be decided which shall pre
vailrbefore your paper goes to press. "
The resolution proposing an amendment
t? the Constitution, as it passed thellousej
was voted down in the Senate. That re;
solution prohibited any distinction in the
right to vote, on account of color, race, or
previous condition of slavery. The Senate
thn passed a resolution as follows : "The
right of citizens of the United States to
vote and hold office shall not be denied or
abridged by the Lmted Spates or any
State on account of color, race, or previous
condition of servitude." On Saturday,
the House, by. a yote of-140 to 33, amend
ed the forecroinjr, by makinsr it read:
"The right of citizens of the United States
to vote and hold office shall a-t be denied
or abridged by any State on' 'account of
race,' color, nativity , property , or previous
condition oi servitude. la i-nis snape n
goes back to the Senate, and, as the same
roposition previously passed that Rranchl
iy-a -rote of forty to sixteen, it is to be
resumed that it will as-ain be adoDtedl
and be a finality on this question, as far as
Congress is concerned.
I have already given my opinion as to
the justice .and policy of this amendment
to the Constitution. ' It has in view an
entire obliteration of distinctions between
men, on account of the mere accidents of
birtn. . un cairn consideration, the amend

plexity of the "quid nuncs," caused by the
utter impossibility to gain even a sli-ht
indication from the President elect as to
his selection of gentlemen to form his cab

has been that of vaticinating or foretelling
the events to" be developed in the future,
are thrown into confusion by Gen'. Grant's
taciturnity,- - l.know oi.no more appropri
ate simile to express the idea I wish to

unforeseen cause, he loses fhe-scent. Com-

ruminate on the folly of his having ex

effort. Your readers can apply the figure
as well as I. Cambria.
We give below the full text of tho pe
tition being circulated in the southern por
tion of the County for the removal of the
County-seal from Ebensburg to Johns
To the Honorable the Senate and Ilouse of
Representatives of the Commonwealth oj
Pennsylvania, in General Assembly met :
The petition of the undersigned, citi
zens ot the County of Cambria, Humbly
Represents, that both the public and pri
vate, interests of the County of Cambria
demand the Removal of the seat of Justice
from Ebensburg to Johnstown in said
County. The seat of Justice as now lo
cated is entirely out of the way for all the
practical purposes of a County Seat.
Were it not that they are compelled to
transact their judicial and county business
at Ebensburg, the people of the county
would have no occasion to even vi&it the
place. In going there, the people go
away from all business ; in ejming away
from there they return to btisiuees. There
is no community of interests between the
interests of the County Seat and the in
terests of any other portion of the county.
The developments of the great resources
of tho county are all away from tho County
Seat, and never can have any relations
with it. Going to Ebensburg is in truth
going away lrom every business relation of
the County, simply to transact that bust
uCSS at Ebensburg. It is difficult ot access
from all portions of the County, and is an
additional tax and encumbrance upon the
people and business of the County. By
reason of its location: the expense attend
ing the. administration of justice amounts
to a denial of it, to a very great extent
Johnstown, on tho contrary, is located,
that all the principal business of the Couo
ty centers iu'it ii is the general market
tor the products of the County; it is therc
the fanner ges everything he needs in
exchange tor his products. It is the bus
iuoss chart of tho County and surrounding
counties. The. people of this County go
tbere ; to traffic a&d". transact business, and
while there oould attend to their legal and
county business, without any additional
expense It is easier of access to the re
mo:pst portion of the county than Ebens
burg." It ii a growing city, with a large,
iudustripu, - aod increaViug population,
and destined ere long to . be one of the
great cities of the State. The city, with
its surroundings, U one of the greatest
manufacturing and mining districts in the
Commonwealth. The necessity of its be-
ing the Seat of Justice of the County mast
be apparent to all. We repeat, that the
public, judicial, couaty, and private inter
estof the people of the County demand
the Removal of v the. County Seat from
Ebensburg to Johnstown. We therefor
pray your Honorable Bodies to pass a lav
to submit the question of the Removal of
the Seat of Justice to a vote of the people
of said County, and as in doty bound will
ever pray, etc.
A New Velocipede. A gentleman,
resident , of this city, says the Cleveland
Herald,- of the 18th inst., has patented a
three wheeled velocipede, which he claims
will excel aDvlhiDg yet brought out, ;As
a test of its powers be intends next -week
to give-a public exhioitioo: of is merits
by making a trip to Rocky river and back
against time. 'Then on the 15th of next
month he will start for Boston, via the
old State road, and will make one hundred
miles in twenty-four hours 6u his inven
tion -or forfeit a large sum" of money.
This new machine is rigged up very much
like a common carriage, having a seat ior
the rider and a calash over to protect him
from thewin and raia. Due notice will
be given , of ' the puUio exhibition. The
merits claimed for the new invention are
that it will ran on any road, in the mud
or on the pavement, up hill or down, and all
without any very great exertion of power.

adelphia to ninety-three thousand private
dwellings, or to over eight hundred thous
