in their favor. Mr. Scofield is filling his
third term in Congress, and Messtc.-Strana

one year, by the party customs are entitled
to a renomination.
THE Eric Observer publishes the names of
sixteen individuals who neglect and refuse
to pay the amounts set opposite their names.
They deserve it ; but we doubt the efficacy
of exposure upon a man who is mean enough
to cheat a printer.— reimag) Spectator.
If our cotemporary means 'that it doubts
whether the publication will secure our.pav,
we perfectly agree with it. , We know, from
experience, that this class of villains are as
destitute or shame as they are of honesty. It
is somAatisfaction, though, to know that if
we can't get our just dues, we may perhaps
be the means of preventing others from being
swindled. A ;tun who will cheat a printer
will do any mean thing, and the community
ought to be placed on it yard against him.
We think that if the newspaper men through
out the country would make a rule of pub
lishing all who swindle them,. and let it be
understood that they intend adhering to it in
every instancelhere would soon be an end
to the complaints in that respect,
Tux Tilionte Journal, whose editor, Mr.
Stevens, served as a soldier under Ben. But
ler, does not appear to have a very high re
gard fir either his moral or political charac
ter. Here is what he says in reply to a
fellow Republican, Vi,llo took him to task for
speaking his mind about the Beast on a pre
vious occasion : "Ills political character we
regard as rotten, and think his present iden
tity with the Repuldictiu part' is prompted
not by principle but by expediency, and
while we have no objection to his voting
and acting with ns, as long :Is he finds it
profitable, we protested, and do protest,
against his being allowed to Arrogate to him
self the leadership, parr rrellonce, of the Re
publican party. We argued, and still assert,
that it was a specimen of monstrous audacity
for a man on whose garments the stench of the
Chat lesion Convention' of 1860 let lingers, to
thrust aside such 'men as Stevens, Bingham,
and Bontwell and by sheer force of self-as
sertion take upon himself the management
of the impeachment ease."
Tin: fall out between Col. lice and the
f;irard Spectator is likely to lead to some
very interesting revelations before long.
The lust issue of the Spectator, which for a
long period was the Colonel's immediate
or:pin, contains au editorial in which his
chances for the Presitlency are referred to in
a very sneering vein, and the grounds upon
which he claims the nomination unmerei
tully ridiculed. The fatuous electioneering
pamphlet, purporting to have been issued by
prominent New York Democrats, which has
se dtered broad-cast ad-cnst over the country,
alleged to have been written in Girard and
printed iu Erie (at the Dispatch office, we
_Mecum.) The Spectator concludes , lty sug
gesting to the Colonel that "the sooner he
comes to the conclusion that be is not wanted
for President of the United States, the better
it will be for his peace and huppiness.” We
regret very much to see these little diversi
ties of opinion between gentlemen who late
ly held such. confidential and pleasant rela
tions to one another.
THE news of the Presidents' acquittal
- reached this city about noon on Saturday,
and was immediately posted upon the
tin boards of the - Observer and Dispa . tch,
causing, the utmost excitement among all'
classes. ' The Democrats were jubilant over
the result, while the Radicals were as crest
fallen n looking set as it has ever been our
I privilege to see. During the day, it was
easy to distinguish th e members of the, two
1 parties wherever they were met, by the grat
ified appearance of the Democrats, and the
universally - despondent look of the Radicals.
1 The groans and curses or the latter were ter
rible to listen to. Most of them had' been
worked up to as certainty of conviction, end
the news fell upon them like a thunder-clap
in winter. Some of our younger Democrats
Were resolved to have a grand jollification
over the event, but it was decided to post-
pone it until the vote on all the articles had
been taken, when they propose to get up a
demonstration• that will show the Radicals
&it the people are not all upon one "side, as
they imagine. Although ninety-nine out of
a hundred Republicams here favor impeach
ment, we are glad to he able to announce,
that the majority do not endorse the studied
efforts to inthienco Senators by outside pros-
Inc ; and not a few gentlemen of that party
have expres-ed to us their unqualified cen

their more extreme brethren: -
A TtnamaNr. Sronv.—The celebrated
Win Mackey, who keep, it saloon on the I
dock, has the misfortune to be troubled with
a "hotter-half" whose frailties are the source
of considerable gossip amonlr the relined Imp
utation who make that locality their head-
quarters. One of the weaknesses she is ac- . I
cued of is a fondness for nice young men of '
the sailor persuasion, to whom, it is alleged;
she permits certain liberties not tolerated by
the law nor the prophets. The amiable 'Wil
liam frequently expostulates, but neither his
threats nor his arguments have been of suf.
ticieut avail to cure her of the provoking'dis %
order. On Saturday, the aforesaid William
entering his domicile rather unexpectedly,-
beheld a sight which made his blood run
cold. A gay young sailor was in the actual
act of imprinting a kiss upon the coral,lip, of
his lovely spouse, and there were indications
which might naturally lead to other surnii
ses, the character ofavhich we dare uut_tuen
tion. William was shocked;. he was horri
fied. He ventured a gentle protest. And
what did the sprightly Mrs. M % Did she,
tall upon her knees, and with her eyes pour
ing out a torrent of tears, beg her offended:
lord's most gracious pardon? Did she con
fess htr wrong, and promise to sin no more
No; like a very fiend, she accused him of
being no better than herself, and rttshed at
him with a shriek of defiance. The sailor
boy followed. Mrs. Mackey's hand alighted
with terrible force upon William's shining
locks, bringing away a heavy bunch as a tro
phy of the onset. The sailor boy's fists
struck in inconvenient proximity to his nose.
William was Boon placed , dory du combat, and
compelled to make an ignominious surren
der. Such treatment in his own domicile
was beyond endurance. He seized the first
favorable opportunity to beat trretreat, and
call in reinforcements. They came, with
shining stars upon their bzeasts,and Mrs. M.
and her heroic lieutenant were in ,turn
brought to grief. They have been sent to
board at the Fifth Avenue Hotel for ten
days, pd Mackey once more rejoices over a
idetory gained,
Roue Cleasitits. is
"The melancholy days have come, the sad
dest of the year:
Of cleaning paint and, scrubbing floors, and
scouring far and near;
Heaped In the corners of the room, the an;
dent dirt lay quiet,
And spiders wove their web secure from fear
and din and riot;
But now the carpets all are up, and from the
stair-case top
The mistress calls to man and maid to wield
the broom and mop., '.
Where are those rooms, those quiet rooms,
the house but now presented,
Whereirr we dwelt, nor dreamed of dirt, so
cozy and contented ?
Alas ! they're turned all upside down, that
quiet suite of. rooms,
With slopsfand suds, and soap, and sand, and
tubs, and pails, and brooms ;-
Chairs, tables, stands are standing round at
sixes and at sevens, . • •
While wife and housemaids fly about like
meteors in the heavens.
The parlor and the chamber floor were
cleaned a week ago,
The carpets shook, the windows washed, as
all the neighbors know ; •
But still the sanctum had escaped—the table
piled with books,
Pens, ink and paper all about, peace in its
very looks,
Till fell the woman on them all, as falls the
plague on men, '
And then they vanish all away—books, pa
pers, ink and pen.
And now, when comes the master horne,4s
come he must at nights,
To find all things are "set to wrongs" that
they have "set to rights!"
When the sound of driving tacks are heard,
though the house is far from still ;
And the carpet woman on the stairs, that
harbinger of ill—
He looks for papers, books or bills, that all
were there before,
And sighs to find them on the desk or in the
drawer no more.
And then he grimly thinks of her who sets
this fuss afloat,
Anti wishes she were out at sea iu a very
leaky boat ;
lie meets her at the parlor door, with hair
and cap awry, - -
With sleeves tucked .up and brooM in hand,
defiance In her eye ;
He feels quite small; and knows full well
there's nothing to be said, '•
So holds his tongue, anti drinks his tea, anti
sneaks away to bed.
Growth of Our Lake Trade.
• As the workings of the several, railroads
terminating tit Erie, and others forming con
nection therewith, are becoming developed,
public attention is drawn fo the increase of
trade and commerce so rapidly springing up.
When the Pennsylvanht Central Co. leased
what was then known as the Sunbury 'and
Erie Railroad, many of our citizens were'llis
pleased with the change, fearing it was 'the
'intention of the lessees to render the road
worthless in order to throw the trade of the
West as much as possible to the Penn'a Ccn
tril others claimed that the object Win to
avail themselves of the cheap transportation
by Lake during the season of navigation, and
thereby be able to compete with the New
York Central and Eric roads—the two latter
having heretofore this advantage over the
Penn's Cential. The result has proven that
the latter class of citizens were correct in
their prognostications. With the opening of
navigation this spring, a Bile of propellers
was chartered to run In cofhieetion with the
Philadelphia & Erie Road and, although
the arrangements and wharfage of the com
pany are not complete, and the freighting
business is only in its infancy, yet to ,gain
some idea of what we may expect, we have
compiled a ft?w - statistics of its business
transactions from the 25th of April to May
11th. The following articles liave been re
ceived :Irons the West 49,600 bushels of
ifylieat c - 73,,28.5 bushels of corn; 28,793 bush
els of oats ; 6,712 barrels of flour ; 200 barrels
and 88 tierces of beef; 23 barrels of beef
10 cases of paper; 400 packages of '
hides. In addition to this, vras'a cargo
chased or private account by bur enterpris
ing Elevator Co., viz : 2,280 bushels of
wheat; 5;654 litishels of oats; 4,609 bushels
of corn. Merchandise from Baltimore to
Western ports 11043 pounds ; merchan
dise from Philadelphia for Western ports
516,759 pounds.
In the coal line they have shipped 904
tons of anthracite and 134 tons of bituminous,
with a heavy stock of anthracite on hand.
ready for shipment. The coal trade, as the
other, has but just' commenced. They have
an average arrival of 15 cars per day loaded
with merchandise, not including the - coal

lln conclusion, I will state, that we are in
(lbted for this fine business opening, which
will MOM increase to an immense trade, to
the Anchor Line, a new transportation ,com
pany, composed mostly of stockholdeb iu
the road. They have made a splendid be
ginning, and do not intend to be beat by
any transportation company doing business
between the Lakes and Seaboard. Success
attend them.
A (MEAT many people have wondered how
it came that so many usually sound Minded
Republicans could have been induced to
sign brother Whallon's recommendation for
Congress. They know that many of them
scout his pretensions in private, and say that
he isMifit for the place ; yet their names ap
pear in a pttblie conummication el i cerrolly
rt.comtnending him as competent for the
position. "Why is this thus.?" Perhaps the
following, from the Girard Crisis, may ex
plain the much mooted question ;
"On Friday last we saw a gentlemanly
looking per-son rushing - frantically around
with a long paper asking parties to affix their
signatures to -the same. On inquiry we
learned that it was the Rev. J. H. IVltallon,
and that he was requesting people to ask
hini in "black and white," to become the
Republican candidate for Congress. We
would suggest to the Revenant gentlemen
the following quotation from a Book which
he has undoubtedly perused, thoroughly, for
many years "I had rather be a doorkeeper
in the house of the Lord than dwell in the
tents of the ungodly." “Stiek to your test,"
Mr. Witallon."
It' we can judge from the communie. l tions
in the Republican organs of the city, an ex
traordinary state of affairs must be in pro
gress among the members of that party in'the
county. We leant from one of them that all
the Republican voters are in favor of Mr .
King for Congress ; another tells us that it is
a mistake—that they are all for Mr. Noble;
still another insists that neither are correct
—that it Ls Mr. Cutler, or Mr. Scofield, or
Mr. Walker, or Mr. Whallon that they are
all for. Now, it strikes us that there must
be a discrepancy somewhere, for they can't
all be for every one of the candidates. Per
haps, these literary gentlemen have fallen
into the singular belief that each of them is
.The embodiment of Erie county Radicalism,
and having his particular favorite, naturally
enough presumes that the party is a unit in
thatdirection. At any rate, let us have the
riddle solved. It would be a queer result if
all the votes should be cast for every candi
date, and might lead to difficulties seriously
affecting the party harmony.
TUE Radical Convention of Jefferson
county has unanimously declared in'favor of
Judge Scofield as. the party nominee for
Congress, and we learn from a responsible
source that be is certain of securing the en
dorsement of Warren, Mcß'ean, Forest, and
Cameron, making more than enough votes
to ensure him the nomination on the. tint
ballot. It does not require much sagacity to
see that, whatever may be the wishea or
plans of the Erie county politicians, he is
sure of being the nominee. This informa
tion may not be very consoling to the half
dozen or less gentlemen in this county who
aspire to his place, but sadly as it may blight
their hopes it is none the less our duty to
record it. We advise brother Whallon not
to waste any more time, blather and shoe
LOVhiJ bilainist.

,that well known property through a

the old fuTniture is to give way to a stock of
more modern character. It is designed to
make the property one of the finest along
the Lake Shore, and the hotel is to be placed
in the hands of a first-class landlord. With
two such houses as the Reed House and the

TUE impression is current with many that
the city library is designed for the special
