'-Snobbery" has been aptly described
by an exchange when it says it -is an into kat ton
that "don' t pay " in this country. Those ahu

because they follow an honest calling, or (1,,
not happen to wear "store clothes" of the XX
order, are really themselves objects of contempt.

fl? Hon. Arnold Plumer, of Franklin,
Venango county, arrived at the depot of
the Pennsylvania Railroad on Tuesday
morning on the 1:50 train from the East.
He took an omnibus for the St. Charles
Hotel, directing the driver to take charge
of the hand trunk which he pointed to
him on the platform. ou arriving at th e
hotel the trunk was missing. The driver
was interrogated, and stated that he had
looked for the trunk. found it gone, and
supposing that Mr. Plumer had takes' it
aside, had driven off without it. Liew.
Logan, of the night police, was immediate
ly informed of the loss, and he issged di
rections for the arrest of any one ‹.en in
possession of such a trunk. The watchmen
were thus on their guard, and half an hour
after, officersiolueston and Richardson ob
served a man named Michael Flannigan
entering his house in the Fifth Weird, with
a trunk in his hand. The alarm was sound
ed, a posse of police surrounded the house.
Flannigan was arrested, and a trunk found
in the yard attached to the house, which
on examination at the Mayor's office, was
identified by Mr. Plumer. • It contained
some $50,000 worth of property and papers,
and clothing to the value of $4O, none of
which had been disturbed. Flannigan was
locked up in the watch house, and after an
examination by the morning, committed
t 9 jail to answer the charge.—Pitis. Post.

A Slander on the Democracy.
We dislike e x eeed in gly to devote AO much
room to the Erpress, but the Democratic
party has a claim upon us to defend it
whether assailed by profesied friends or
open foes. The Eepreas, as some of our
readers are doubtless aware, is a new paper
here. Its reputed Editor is a Democrat,
if a Democrat at all, of nine week's standing
—his citizenship in Erie county dates from
the same auspicious moment as his Democ
racy. Less months ago than we have been
years in the service of the Democracy of
Erie, this Editor was a candidate before the
Republican Convention of Warren county
for its nomination for the As.sembly. Had
he received that nomination lie would be
now, at this moment, preaching Republican
doctrine and casting &put/jean votes among
the Republicans of the present legislature.
Such ere the political antecedents of the
Editor of the Erpress--and yet this FAitor,
with antecedents like this, fresh from the
ranks of the Repshhean party, with his skirts
yet draggled, and his hair yet crisp and
kinky with its pollution, has the unblush
ing effrontery to accuse the I)emocrats of

Those engaged in catching and packing white
fish and lake trout have already commenced
operations. and their labors thus far have been
rewarded by profitable loads of the.finny beau
ties. The business has steadily increased front
year to year and if it continues to advance
proportionately in the future will Dome one
of the most iniportant branches of our local
trade. From all that we can learn ten times
as many boats and men might engage in the
business with prod*. The hOme demand is sti
most as great al the supply, and immense
quantities can be shipped to Advantage to dis

in very deep water, from three to six miles off
this port, and the quantity appears to be in
exhaustible. As a delicacy they are not ex

an article of food are very cheap and whole-
At present the market is well supplied with
fish taken from the harbor and neighboring
