We repeat, what we have said - before, that
we have been compelled to resort to this

TILE F 15111750 FrICORE.—The whole com
munity has been in excitement for the past
two weeks over the great abundance of fish
being caught in the Lake at this point. Noth-i
ing has ever been known, and. it . is the
leading topic of speculation in every part of
the-city. The favorite fishing grounds are in
the open Luke, a few hundred yards outside
of the harbor, though we are informed that
parties have met with nearly as much success
alongside the piers at the entrance. Hosts of
fishermen are out at all hours of the day, and
the number of the finny tribe that they bring
back with them would be incredible to per
sons in less fav'ored localities. On Saturday
afternoon, fifteen hosts, containing tot less
than fifty inmates, nude and female, were
anchored outside of the harbor, within a few
yards of each other.. Their close proxiiiity.
did not have the least effect upon the fishing,
and thiise Who understood the knack"Of pro
perly baiting their hooks, were rewarded with
astonishing success.- In most cases, the line
Was scarcely thrown into the water until it
caught a fish, and the sport was exhilerating
to a degree seldom attained. The fish are
nearly all perch, and average from three
quarters of a foot to a foot in length. Out of
at least fifteen hundred that we . Saw, during
our visit to the locality, there : were not half
a dozen that would fall lielow . this size. To
give readers abroad some impression of the
way in which the fish bite, we will state that
a party of two, after an alikenee of about
three hours, returned with Ram hundred fish,
and this is a fair sample of the
_luck which
attends nearly all after they once acquire the
knack of the business.
The sensation produced by thisi extntonli
pary state of things may be easily imagined.
The boats in the harbor are kept in constant
use, and not less than a couple hundred per
sons visit the favorite localities daily. Almost
every hour of the day parties pass our office
with enormous strings offish, in most eases so
heavy that two men are needed to carry them.
A string of forty or fitly is not thought worth
bringing home, and would subject the person
carrying them to ridicule. The news of the
wonderful sport has spread far and wide, and
crowds of persons from - the neighboring
towns have come in to participate in the fish-.
lug. If it continues for any. length of time ,
fish will become a drug upon the market, and,
Erie will acquire a reputation throughout the
country as. the Paradise of anglers.
Fort ern eT GmAno.—The gocid people of
Girard and vicinity are • preparing for a
regular . old fashioned celebration of the
Fourth. The day will be ushered in by a salute
of thirteen guns, and . ringing of bells. At 10
o'clock a procession will be formed in the
Square, and march through the principal
streets. The Declaration is to be read by S.
Todd Pericy, Esq:, and an oration will be de
livered by Rev. C. L Shipman. Capt. D.W.
Hutchinson is to preside at the meeting, and
E. D. Pickett will act as Marshall. In the
afternoon the Fairview Fantastift will invade
the town. The festivities will close with a
fine display of fireworks. Girard never fails
to perforrg her full share of patriotic duty.

.Lowry Carries Crawford County.
The Radical primary elections held in
Crawford comity, on Friday of last week, re
sulted, as we eitpected they would, In the
success of Mr. Lowry by a heavy majority.
In the Eastern and Western portions of the
county, his vote is well nigh, unanimous, and
even in the middle portions his _competitor
did not run as well as his friends ardirleated
This triumph of Hr. Lowry is more to be at
tribiited to his adroit management and plaus
ible character, than to any particular degree
Or personal popularity. It must be apparent
to his friends, no less than to outsiders, that_
individually he is not a favorite with his par
ty, but he IIAS that peculiar tact and boldness
which do more towards winning political
battles titan the purest character or the pre
foundest ability. His gun boat scheme and
new county dodge are as ridiculous as they
are ingenious, but they, were sprung before
the attention of the people at just the right
moment to suit the, purpose intended, and
have borne forth the'fruits that were expect
ed from them. For appearance sake, the
humbug will be kept up perhaps for a year
or two after election, but those who seriously
expect either Federal or State aid towards
the enitirgement of the canal for naval
purposes, or that a new county will be crea
ted out of the Western part of CraSvford,will
be as egregiously duped as the South was
when it supposed that-secession could be ac
complished without a struggle. ,
The selection of Mr. Lowry by a direct
vote of the Radical masses, is a fair,com
mentary upon the professions of patriotism
which that party has mole in.' the last six
Nears. The issue was presented to them of
sustaining a soldier of admitted worth and
talent, or a mere politician, who 1.,m0 rich
during the war, while others were devoting
their lives and means towrirtli the success of
the Union : anti by their deliberate action
they have tvject«l the former to promote the
advancement of the latter! Could anything
be more suggestive of the hypocrisy which
has grown into a trade in our politics than
such a verdict! The Colonel of the gallant
old 8:Id regiment, the favorite of the whole
North-West, whose - colors were torn to pieces
by Southern bulletsond whose columns were
so decimated that hardly air original member
was left at the end of the war—a man of ac
knowledged bravery and fine attainments—
deserted by the very people whose homes he
fought to protect, and pushed out of the way
to make room for a plausible professional of
lice-seeker Oh, for the consistency of our
modern so-called "loyalty!"
Of couAO this triumph of He' Lowry is
decisive that he will again be the nominee of
the Radicals for the. State Senate. His ene
mies in the party ranks in Erie county, though
numerous, are neither courageous enough,
nor possessed of the necessary perseverance
and shrewdness to make the slightest approach
to an effective opposition. We have no doubt
that he will carry the CoUnty Convention
nearly unanimously, and henceforth his pow
er may iie_reg s arded as being so firmly estab
lished for years to come, that he can control
the machinery of the party to suit himself.
It is very likely that some new scheme to de
feat him before the people may be originated,
but the timidity and want of adroit manage
ment which his Radical enemies have dis
played heretofore are not oiery encouraging
for Democrats to participate in it, and unless
there is something of a more positive, deter
mined and influential character than has
been tried in the past, we ilrefer to ran
araout and out ticket, from top to bottom, of
true and tried members of our own party.

Yur. NrcuousoN opinhins
respecting the Nicholson parethent are of so
diverse a nature that it is very difficult for a
disinterested person to make up his mind
upon the subject. We had scarcely finished
reading an elnimwate eulogy upon it, when a
copy Of the Chicago Times was handed us,
in Which the paving, as laid down in that
city, is criticised with merciless-severity.. As
we have already published a statement from
an exchange, in " which the pavement was
commended to the public, it isoo more than
just that we should permit our readers to see
the other side of the question, and some sub
mit the following extrAttfrom the editorial
in the Times:
"If tiny persons shall be induced to favor
the Nicholson street flooring on account of
representations that the speculators may make
concerning its success in Chicago, they will
suffer themselvesto be humbugged with their
eyes wide open. The Nicholson street floor
ing is not a success in Chicago, butis a fail
ure, just as it will be everywhere else. It is
but a very slight improvement on the old
Flan of horizontal planking, which was first
introduced and extensively practised in this
city twenty years ago. The planks did very
well on streets where there was no heavy
teaming, and so does the Nicholson " style of
flooring. So long as Chicago remained a
country village, three-inch oak planks, laid
on a compact roadway of sand, were found
to constitute an economical and satisfactory
style of street flooring. So now in such
places as Kalamazoo, Oshkosh, Milwaukee,
Joliet, Springfield, etc., the Nicholson floor
ing (which differs but little from the oak planl
flooring) would probably answer the require
ments of economy and usefulness. But when
any of those places attain the size and.busi
ness importance of Chicago, they wjll find
something more substantial and durable
than a wooden floor Ls' required in their busi
nessstreets. They will do wisely to profit by
the costly experience of Chicago, and not at
tempt to make a whistle out of a pigs
or a street pavement out of pine lumber. It
cannot be done. The most useful i putTor
the Nicholson street flooring has served in
Chicago has been to prove its own Worthless
Tin prospects at present look to us as if
the contest for Radical Legislative • can
didates in this city would he more than usu
ally vigorous. The candidates thus tbr are
Messrs: G. W. Starr and A. R. Kellogg, to
which it is likely Gen. McCreary, one of our
late members of the House, will be added. It
is understood that Gen. McCreary did not
return with the expectmion of-being re-elect
ed, but since his arrival home he hay been
urged by many of his friends, who regard his
legislative experience as possessing consider
able value, to accept a nomination in case it
is tendered him, and, although he leas not
positively decided, it is more than likely that
he will conclude to become a candidate. In
such an event, the fight in the city will vir
tually be narrowed down to McCreary and
Kellogg, .as Mr. Starr will hardly feel:like
entering upon a hotly contested campaign.
Kellogg is a young man of much energy,who
has had a good deal of experiencein running
Radical caucuses, and knows how: to put it
to practical use. His extensive acquaintance
with our younger citizens' will enable him to
rally a large share of them to his support,
and whether or not be succeeds, he will give
his competitors considerable trouble. , The
'result in Crawford divests the Senatorial is
sue of much of its interest here, and the main
squabble will be upon the Assemblyman and

THE stockholders of. the Erie & North
East anti BuffalO & State Line B. B. Compa
nies have voted-In favor of consolidating the
property and franchises of the two corpora
tions, in act-Ord:ince ivith an act of the last
Legislature. The consolidated company has
selected the follhwing as its officers:
Williams, President; Chas. IL Lee, Vice
President ; B. N. Brown, General Superin
Tae old saying, "GU abroad for - news,"
is strikingly verified in the following front
the New York Tribune of Monday:
An election for State Senator and A'ase mi
laymen was held in Crawford connty,Pa., on
Friday last, which has probably resulted in
the choice of a Democratic Senator. The
imperfect returns received indicate the elec
tion of Lowry (Dem.) over McCoy (Rep.) by
rtmalority of about 500."
Tin; new Masonic Hall, in Noble's Block,
was dedicated lon Monday afternoon, with
imposing ecreinonies.‘ A large number of
the fraternity at ended from abroad, and the
hospitability es ended to them by oar citi
zens made a very favorable impression. In
the evening a grand promenade Concert and
Festival was held in the Hall, which was
participated in by an immense concourse of
ladies and gentlemen, and which gave the
utmost satisfaction to all. The incidents of
the day have given Masonry a StrongZr hold
than ever upon the respect of the communt
ty, and will ht4..e the tendency to materially
increase the applications for membeiship. • •
THE followhig are the officers of the Y.
M. C. Association for the ensuing year:
President, Chas. C. - Shirk; Vice President,
E. L. Felton; Recording Secretary, Chas. E.
Gunnison; Coiresponding Secretary, C.W.
Lytle; Treasurer, J. L. Russell; Librarian,
A. R. Caughey; Assistant Librarian, H. S.
Jones. We oingratulate 'our young friend,
Mr. Shirk, on his re-election to the Presi
dency, 4 . po.iiion he filled last year, with
fidelity and rare acceptance. Mr. CaugheY
is again choseri head of the Lecture commit
tee, a post In which he has served for u nut&
her of years, and the duties of which he, is
better adapted to perform, perhaps, than
any other person in the community..
Out?. influential daily cotempopry, having
succeeded in completely annihilating Lowry,
will, in all prohability,.now turn its gigantic
batteries with redoubled vigor upon the
cows, pigs and geese that infest the city lim
its. The public may expect to see a full list,
per diem, of all the cows that visit the . East
Park, with graphic sketches of each par
ticular boviiie,including the color of their hair,
the particular shape — of their hornit, the ca
pacity of their appetites, the length or their
tails, and the comparative modesty or im
modesty of their demeanor. In the difficult
task of regenerating the political, moral and
other evili wbieb prevail, our co.temporaty
is perfectly at home, as the wonderful suc
cess that has attended its past efforts abun
dantl.;. testify.
• PEnsoNs who have, recently visited our
city from Philadelphin; and other places 'in .
the Southern phrt of the State, express than
selves no less astonished at its growth than
ielighted with its appearance, situation and
climate. S ri‘tominent gentlemun who was
here ;I few days ago remarked to us that he
knew of nu location he would so soon pass
the summer :in as Eric. The fine, bracing
breezes from the Lake temper the atmos
phere here in the summer to - a degree that
only those who live In the sultry places or
the interior can properly appreciate. We
feel assured that with the opening of a first
class hotel, Erie will become a plai.e of much
resort for parties from Philadelphia and else
where, who wish to secure a pleasant place
for spending the hot season of the yeas.
+I.IOSF: ofour readers who are looking about
for a machini! of the kind will find Doilge's
Reaper and Mower and Self Raking Harves
ter just the article they need. Messrs. Pierce
Co. have it for sale at• their .hanlware*
store, where nil who desire can have an op
portunity of seeing it, and obtain descriptive
circulars. These machines have been
thoroughly tested in this section, and the en
tire satisfactiOn they have giiren makes them
sell better than any other machine in the
market. Messrs. P. Co. deserve to be
heartily congratulated upon the hit they
have made in their agency for patent'agri
cultural. implements The [Corse Hoc they
sell has, like the Mowing Machine, attained
an unrivalled popularity. About two- hunt
red and fifty have already been disposed of
this season, and the high favor in which the
-fanners regard 'them, makes it certain that
the hoe will remain a standard article for
years to come.
THE elevator of Messrs. Brown, McCarter,
Shannon (k, Co., 'at our harbor, is progreming
with great rapidity, and will be ready for.
eratlons by - the coating fall. No , less than
sixty men are employed in different capaci
ties, and the speedy way iii which the work
is being pushed ahead, speaks more than
words for the enterprise and energy of the
firm. The elevator will have a-capacity for
unloading and storing 190,000 bushels of grain
per day . , and is so arranged that within thirty
days it, can be enlarged to any extent requir
The machinery will be heavy enough to
meet any demand that may be made, upon it,
being as powerful as that of the largest Buffalo
concerns. We are pleased to o learn that the
prospects for the elevator are of the most
flattering kind. Parties in Philadelphia have
given assurances of a large patronage as soon
as it is completed, and the owners feel com
plete confidence In the profitable character of
the enterprise.
Tut: Titusville Herald takes up the cudgel ,
in favor of Rev. J. L. Hays, and applies it
with vigor to the politiciani who played the
trick upon him by which he was with
drawn from the field as a candidate for As
sembly. A says his fiends had tuade "a .
vigorbus canvass in Ithcbehalf, and the pros
pectsweroconsidered not inferior to those
of any competitor." 'The matter of his de
clination "was arranged at, Meadville among
some of his professed friends, and without
any sort of intimation that such a course was
intended. Mr. Hays heard a rumor to .that
effect and at once started for Meadyille, but
upon anfling there found that the announce
meld of his 'withdrawal' had already been
published da the Crafrford Journal, and ex
tensively circulated throughout the county.
lie was justly indignant at the proceeding,
but it was too late to counteract the effect of'
the infamous net, and he was compelled to
yield to the necessity imposed." While we
acknowledge the unfairness of Mr. Hays'
treatment, we cannot say that we sympa
thize with himjn his troubles. During Me
war he was one of the most unfair enemies
of Democrats: that we know' of, and by his
vituperative denunciations of them frOM the
pulpit secured an odium that will' attach; to
him for years. Having deliberately made
his lieu with- the class of politicians who.
were congenial to him, he can blame no one
but himself if at this late day, - he finds them
to be what we Ipe always told him. Our
sympathies witly' r politiciarts as a class are
not the wanuesf at the best, but for none of
the genus do we Wive a• more thorough con
tempt than those who degrade the pulpit to
minister to party ends, or their own selfish
purposes. •
WE hear but one report in, regard to the
crops in this section. In every part of the
county they give . the mast encouraging
prospects, and, unless indications prove de
ceptiye, we shall have a most bountiful har
vest There are few persons in the com
munity who will not be gratified with this
intelligence—the farmers, because it affords
the . prontise of 4 more profitable recompenqe
for their labor—the tradesmen, because it is
the token of an active fall business,—and the ,
mechanic, because it will bring, down the
prices of provisions to a more economical
standard. Let other interests monopolize
the attention of legislators . and philosophers
as they may, it Ls the agricultural after all,
that forms the basis of every sound and pro:q•
perous country. , •
