THE TIME TO ADVERTISE.—Some one, who
has studied the matter thoroughly, advises
business men that the preseilt is the time of
all others to advertise. He says : Now that
the Presidential election is over, people will
be ready to settle down to practical business.
Housekeepers will be providing for family
wants, and merchants laying in stocks of
fresh goods to meet the demands which are
sure to be made upon them. Those who
have merchandise to dispose of should take
advantage of this favorable state of affairs,
and do as the politicians have been doing—
keep themselves before the people. The
columns of the Observer (which has the
largest circulation of any paper in the North
\Vest,) are open to all such. We cordially
invite business men of all kinds to avail them
selves of the golden opportunity, promptly,
and to as great an extent as their purses will
allow or their business will justify. No
money is so well invested as that expended
in judicious advertising.
EXTRAORDINARY CONyEItsION.---Tbe Mead
ville Republican, for a long time one of Mr.
Lowry's most_uncomprornising enemies, has
experienced as sudden a - conversion as St.
Paul''s, and in its issue of last week published
an editorial as abjectly laudatory of him as
it has hitherto hewn bitterly denounciatory
We will not undertake to explain the reason
of this extraordinary' somersault, but the
reader may draw his own conclusions. The
editor of the Republican ma a candidate for the
Meadville Post Office, Senator Cameron
will control the appointment, and Mr. Lowry
the latter's boon friend, ally and adviser in the
Western part of the State. "Pot this and
that together," and the inference follows like
the hind wheel of a wagon, as Sam. Slick
used to say. The rapidity with which Lowry
is drawing-his old time Republican foes over
to his support, and attaining step by step to
the absolute control of his party . in this sec
tion, is no less a proof of his skill as a politi
cian th'in of the weakness of poor human

A Boy's IDE S OF POLITIC:4.-110.s are
isually pretty shrewd observers of things,
and it isn't often that they go far astray in
their judgment of them, as the following es
say by one of the pupils in our high school
conclusively proves. Those of our readers
who took an active part in the last campaign
will read it with interest :
"Polities is a hard word. I don't just
know what it means. I guess it is a sort or
sickness., People*: who have this sickness
meet together in the evening and howl and
talk. Pa has 'cm bad. He goes out five
nights in the week, and doesn't stay at home
the other night. He has 'cm so bad that he
can't walk straight when he comes home. I
used to think that politics was something
good to eat. Ma thinks it is something good
to drink. I went once to a meeting where
they had politics bad. A man got up and
called another who wasn't there all sorts of
names. He saidlie belonged to the other
party. He said the country was going to
ruin, and we should all be ground to pow
der in .the crash. I told ma I thought he
was talking about earthquakes. Earth
quakes is in my last - geography lesson. I
don't like geography much. Bill Brown
calls it groggerfee. But groggerfee is a good
deal better than politics.
Pa says when 1 grow ttp I. shall under
stand politics, but I don't like the taste of it,
except when ma makes it up in egg-nog.
When I'm a map _I mean to have a horse
and a cow, and go to the theatre, and be a
policeman, and keep a candy store, and have
a balloon, and dance on the tight-rope, and
be a clown, and go to church once a year,
and imswimming three times a day. But I
don't want any more politics."
The court of Quarter Sessions opened on
Monday forenoon, Judge Johnson *presiding.
The proceedings have not included ranch of
general interest. On petition from Wayne
Tp., Chas. S. Steadman was appointed con
stable in place of C. W. Pullet, dee'd. On
Monday afternoon, the Judge delivered the
customary charge to the Grand Jury, instruc
ting them in the duties they were to perform.
He congratulated them upon the remarkable
!Inlet that had followed the late exciting po
litical campaign, and spoke in severe lan
guage of the evil effects of intoxicating drink,
which he said was the cause of two-thirds of
the evils that afflict society. Cornelius and
Mary Ann Sullivan were placed on nisi for
surety of the peace. The Court ordered Cor
nelius to pay the costs and keep-himself and
wife peaceable. On Tuesday, Henry Stokes
and Henry Blake, both colored, were found
guilty of- larceny. Geo. Bird, indicted for
complicity with 'Knapp,. forfeited his bail.
Nathaniel Blake (colored) plead guilty to
stealing a cow, and was remanded to jail for
sentence. The Grand Jury n:ported "not a
true hill" in the case of D.J. Preston, charged
with assault .and battery upon H. K. Bald
win, at Union, and the crnty*to pay the
costs. Chas. Diefenbach, indicted for assault
and battery, forfeited his bail. The bill
against Jacob Reible, for enticing Pius Bei-
We's child away, was ignored. Wm. Marra
and Thos. McGrath were found guilty of
robbery. Marra broke jail a couple months
ago, and hasn't been found.
In the case of Pius Wilde, for neglect of
his child, the verdict was not guilty, hut de
fendant to pay the costs. Elijah, John and
Various otherJun - Laps were found guilty of
stealing a sheep in Greenfield Tp. The
Grand Jury ignored,the hill Mr libel institu
ted' by A. P. Longbottom against the Titus
ville Herald, and laid the costs uponlhe offi
cers of the company which Longbottnm rep
resented. Court adjourned over Thanksgiv
ing to meet again on Friday morning.
ENLAIMENIENT OF TUE CANAL.—The Pitts
burgh Post claims to have information "that
it is contemplated by the Canal Company to
enlarge their improvement, and to substitute
locks, one hundred and ten by twenty feet in
the chamber, with seven feet depth of water,
making a capacity for vessels of two hundred
and fifty to three hundred tons." "This im
provement," it adds, "will add vastly to the
commercial facilities between Erie and Pitts
burgh, and the whole valley of the Ohio,
making a magnificent water otttleufrom Pitts
burgh to the whole great Lake region, and
to Canada and western New York. Vessels
can then leave Pittsburgh, at all times when
the Ohio is in a fair state, and go through in
to Canada, or into Buffalo, without tranship
ment, thus reducing both the time and cost
of freighting all Pittsburgh manufactures, and
of course enlarging the market for Pittsbur
ghers generally. Mr. Roberts, Engineer of
the Ohio River Improvement, who was the"
constructing Engineer, .years ago, of the
Pennsylvania Erie Canal, has recently re-ex
amined the entire line, and the region, with
a view to report shortly upon this valuable
public improvement.. —The enlargement of
the Pennsylvania Erie ('anal, iu view the
great increase in the general business of the
country, seems to be a necessity 'of the
WE ARE requested to state that Mrs. Dr.
Beebe, former/via this city, has donatell two
very fine oil paintings tp the Soldiers' and
Sailors' Monumental Fair. They were both

EDITOR'S VIIIP BASKET.
The political tempest Las thoroughly
calmed down, leaving everybody in a serene
condition, and few the worse for wear. The
Republicans take their victory with a degree
of moderation hardly to be expected, while
the defeated Democracy try to pass the mat
ter over with the best grace possible—which
isn't to sat that they enjoy the situation the
slightest bit. Meantirite there is a lull in the
political world, and both parties scaa, dis
posed to give political discussions the go-by
entirely during th balance of the season.
The conclusion is sensible, and none aPpre
elate it better than the editotlal brotherhood,
who are obliged to hear and Write so much
of politics, that it is a blessed relief to get a
resting spell once in a while: We have
availed ourself of the opportunity to take a
rummage through our drawers and pigeon
holes, and the result is a collectios of good
things Which will aid greatly in keeping up
pleasant relations with our readers during
the long and dreary winter that is setting
upon us so rapidly. Speaking of poli
tics, remindsus that the hard names which
people are in the habit of calling one an
other during exciting campaigns is not, as
might bepreSumed,atpractice of recent origin.
Any one who has the fortune to possess a file
of paper's published in the days of our early
history, will find epithets used which put• to
blush the best efforts in that line which the
Lowry-Gazette discussion has given curren
, cY to. Even the patriarchs of fhe church
sometimes tried their hands at the business
in a gentle way. .Tohn Calvin used such
terms as "hog," "ass," "horse,"-"bnll," "drunk
ard," "madman," to designate those who dis
-agreed with him. Luther called Calvin a
declaimer, and Calvin responded : "Your
whole school is nothing but a stinking stye
of pigs. Dog ! do you understand me ? Do
you understand me, madman?, Do you un- '
derstand me, you great beast ?" Horace
Greeley and Brick Pomeroy were mere ap
prentices in comparison with these two or
thodox berates. Some years ago, when
Corry was a patch of woods, a clergyman
was preaching to a large audience in that
vicinity and announced for his text, "In my
Father's house are many mansions." He
had scarcely read the words, when an old
coon stood up Ad said : tell you, folki,
that's a lie ! I knew his father well. Ile
lives fifteen miles front Albion in an old log
cabin, and there hain't but one room in the
house." It wasn't far from the same
locality that the following incident , hap
pened : "What did you come here after?"
inquired a miss to a bachelor friend who
made her a call when all the rest of the folks
had gone out, during the holidays. "I came '
to borrow some matches," he meeklyreplied.
"Matches! that's a likely story. Why don't
you make a match ? I know what you came
for," exclaimed the delighted miss; as she
crowded the 'Old bachelor into a corner, "you
came to hug, and kiss me almost to death,
but you shara unless you are the strongest,
ands know you are." is surprising
how much may be, °Wined by dev_oting, a
few hours-each day td study, during a series
of years. Gibbon produced his great work
rather by the regularity, than the proticted
nature of his daily studies. Franklin I.con,a
the wisest and one of-the best read of his co
temporaries in 'the midst of incessant labor.
And if the Workman,with his healthful mind
so well prepared for.the reception of knowl
edge, will give two-Hours each day to care
ful study, he may, in a few years, surpass in
general information the great majority of
college graduates, who so often obtain a di
ploma without deserving it, or who haVe
laid aside their learning the moment they
left their preceptors.—One of our ex
changes tells of an office-holding - chap who,
on being Asked how lie contrived 'to ,hold
office under successive administrations', re
plied that "administrations must be darned
smart if they could change oftener than he
could." We wonder if it can be true that a
certain gentleman of this city is the one re
ferred to ?—Some mean fellow has re
cently taken down the entire conversation
between two ladies (hiring a fashionable call,
on street, and reports verbatim all that
was said, as follows : "How do you do, my
dear ?" "-Putty well, thank you." [They
kiss.] "How have you been this age ?"
"Putty well. How have yon been ?" "Very
well thank you.' "Pleasant- to day." "Yes,
very bright—but we had a shower yester
day." Are all your people well !•' "Quite
well, thank you ;' how are yours?" "Very
well, I'm obliged. to you." "Have you seen
Mary L— lately ?" "No, but I've seen
Susan C—." "You don't say so! Is she
well ?" "Very well, I believe." [Rising.]
"Must you, go ?" "Yes, indeed; I have sev
en calls to make.' "Do call again soon."
'Thank you; but you don't call on me once
in an age." "Oh, you should not say so ; I'm
sure I'm very good." "Good bye."—
A bad temper is a regular curse to its posses
sor, and its influence is most deadly wher
ever it is found. It is a kind of martyrdom
to live with one of a complaining temper.
To hear a continual round of complaints and
murmurings, to have every pleasant thought
driven away by the evil spirit, is in truth a
sore trial. It is like the sting of a scorpion,
or a perpetual nettle, destroying your peace,
and rendering life a burden !—At the
time of Gough's first appearance in Erie, des
canting on the superior virtues of cold wa
ter, he remarked : "When the world had
become so corrupt that the Lord could do
nothing with it, he was obliged to give it a
thorough sousing with cold water." "Yes,"
replied a toper present, "but it killed every
critter on the face of the earth:: Darin , '
the session of court a few years ago, a wit
ness was asked by Mr. DeCamp if he was
not a hUsbandman, when he cooly replied,
amid the laughter of the court,."No sir, I'm
not married." The skating season will
soon be here, and we are reminded by it of
a neighbor who had' repeatedly been urged
by - some female acquaintances to accompany
them to the Bay. Heat-last yielded, being no
longer able to resist the blandishments of
his bewitching tormentors. He said he put
ou a pair of skates and struck boldly out, and
the next thing he knew was himself in lied,
the minister sitting beside him singing a
-psalm, the doctor courting his wife, and the
undertaker measuring him for a walnut, eof
fin.—A lake captain entered a groggery,
the proprietor of which is somewhat famohs
for his domestic troubles, and seeing no one
present but the landlord and Commodore
Stewart, seated himself, and entered into
conversation with the latter_ Shortly after
wards be asked Jim if he was dry? Jim said
he was. Stranger told him to gd to the bar
and take something at his expense. Jim did
so, and soon left. Landlord says to the
stringer: "Are you acquainted with that
nigger ?" "No, never saw him before, but
why do, you ask ?" "I supposed so, froM
your conversing with hint, and asking him
to drink." "Oh," said the stranger, "I was
only experimenting. The fact is, I was dry
myself, and I thought if your liquor didn't
kill the - darkey in fifteen minutes„l would
venture to take a drink myself." An un
happy Benedict, who doesn't always find
his "better half" as he would have her, asks
us to publish this, in hope that it may meet
her eye : A Woman may be of great assist
ance to her htisband in business-by a cheer
ful smile continually upon her countenance.
A man's perplexity and gloominess are in
creased a hundred fold when his better half
moves ab t with a continnal scowl upon
her hroW. A pleasant, cheerful wife is as a
rainb w tln the sky when her husband's
mind tossed with storms and tempests ;
but a dissatisfied and fretful wife, in r the hour
of trouble, is like one of those fiends who are
appointed to torture lost spirits.—Old
Maid City Cousin—"Ah t my. dear, when
you've lived a little longer in Erie, you won't
he quite so green," Country Cousin—" Be
tter greens titan withered." There is said
to be a - farmer in' Dlcrean township, who,
on being asked the number of his children,
hesitated, and referred the questioner to his
wife, and she replied, "ten ;" but when in
the course of conversation the farmer was
asked as to the number of hogs he possessed,
he replied promptly, "seventy-one."

WIFE BEATERS are a class who get little
encouragement from either sex. The. other
day, one of this class was treating his better
half in a brutal manner, when some men
heard the noise, and interfered. The tyrant
answered their protestations in an impudent
way, and they administered a thrashing to
him that will probably keep him in remem
brance of the event for some weeks. Public
opinion will justify them, whether the law
does or not.
T FEE Disiwrcn tells a story that may be of
advantage to wives who arc troubled with
truant husbands. One of our saloon keepers
was bent on going to Buffalo, where his . 'bet- -
ter-half suspected he would manage to - Make
way with a considerable sum of money. She
remonstrated—reminded him of the tempta
tions in that city—of his unfortunate predi
lections for pretty waiter girls and such like;
but all tom avail. He was bound to go,and
by way of preparation, indulged in sundry
and numerous potations. The natural effect
ensued, and it was not long until he-s as-so
much overcome that he fell into the arms of
Morpheus without a struggle. While in this
condition she removed his boots and socks,
and applied strong mustard plasters to his
feet. When he awoke his pedal extremities
were as sore as a dog's ear in fly time, and
the trip to Buffalo had to be indefinitely post
poned. We wish that woman was the wife
of several young men of our acquaintance.
THE Cleveland Plaindealer has a poet who
does up the glories of that city in an exhila
rating vein that must be read to be appreci
ated. We give one verse as a sample :
"0, Cleveland, Clevelatid, thou art on thy
Post sit, and o'er the sea thy sceptre wave,
Old Erie's main, whose realm is all thine
Thy beauteous feet whose sparkling riplets
Or, whose vast waves, when storms in anger
Bestrew with wrecks the shore both far and
Whence came. thy loveliness? Catist tell
Thon needst not blush, nor veil thy face, nor
In prose or verse, in. psalms or song, thou
hast no peer."

the writer of this noble •outburst of genius
with the richest gift at their command, they
will deserve the general execration of the

Letter from Conneaut Township.
ConinAve, Nov, 16, 1868
EDlTOR:—Having been much inter
ested in rending letters in the Observer . from
your correspondents in different partsl,of our
county, I thought perhaps I might contribute
a small mite towskrd interesting your patrons
Our chief occupation through this section
is farming. We have received a very fair
compensation this season for our labor, in
consideration of the dry weather we irad du
ring the summer months. - Wheat and Oats
came in good. Hay is the poorest crop we .
had ; it is selling at from $l3 to SIC, With a
prospect of being cheaper before spring.
Corn is abundantly good: Potatoes are it OA
yield,"but hardly ripe.
• At present there is .but little excitement
with us, time having rolled around with its
uschecked velocity, and election being over,
people have come to the conclusion that they
must do something beside attending polit
ical meetings and pole4aisings. Sp4k
ing of election, I would say, our Republican
friends claim to have elckted their President,
• but they are still in doubt - as to whether they
have a victory or not. • They remind
one of a sixteen year old couple in love, who
want to marry. They go it while the ex
citement lasts, and when it is too late, they
stop to consider the consequencef They are
afraid now that U. S. G. may not turn out to
be so much of a Radical after all. And we
think' they have good reason to doubt, too.
If they look : over his history, they will find
the most of his acts to be Democratic. We
find since he has got to keeping bad compa
ny he has varied from his life long princi
History dues nut record another event lik6
the one just passed through. That of men
whom we believed to be honest, rushing fmn
tically on to support a man who does not en
dorse their platform, nor guarantee to them a
Republican administration. The answer to
the question "why is all this?" is simply that
he was their only available man. They could
dupe no other man to run on their ticket
that they could elect. Time will tell wheth
er he is the man they took him to be or not.
If he is, I suppose all the big Rads will have
one of "the widow Brown's purps," even to
our fair skinned and oily tongued represen
tative, (then be will have a mate td his cat).
But if he (Giant) ;should adhere to the old
Detnoctatic principles under which he was
reared, then ho will think the widow Brown
and all the carpet baggers this side of Christ

I hope that they will use him better than
they do that other Democrat, (A. Johnson),

How OFTEN do you hear the complaint
from mother and father that their son or,
daughter is not well ; that they have no al),
petite ; that they feel languid ; that their headi
aches ; that they are growing thin and feeble,!
'and that they have no life or energy left
That they are low-spirited, and perfectly in-
capacitated to participate in any pleasures
or perform• any mental or physical duty.
And the question is often asked, what shalll
do for them? or what shall I give them?
Our answer is, let them try Pi.AwrkrioN
BirrEns moderately three times a day, and
our word for it they will recover.

at the Reed House for those two days only.
The many years study and practice which
the Doctor has given to diseases of the Eye,
Ear, Tbroat,Catarrh and all forms of chronic
diseases, place him at the head of his profes

other communities who cah vouch for his
ability by the cures which he has performed
upon their owri - persons. All who are afflict

,Clara, second daughter of Capt. Thomas
2d. and Clarissa M. Austin, aged 22 years.
Her funeral, from St. Paul's church, was
attended by , a large concourse of sorrowing
relatives and friends, on Wednesday. But a
few months since, this bereaved family fol
lowed to the grave the youngest daughter,
an interesting girl just budding into woman
hood; and now the circle of their desolate
fireside is called Upon to mourn again. "Tru
ly whom God loveth he chasteneth."
In the death of this loved one, her relatives
are experiencing a severe affliction, and the
circle of her friends and acquaintances, a loss
which will be long felt. Always inclined to
the sacred instincts 'of a christian life, to fol
low in the meek and holy path of Christ, was
,her study; possessing ad amiable,disposition,
she was the very soul of kindness and affection ;
of an extremely modest and domestic nature,
home was her loved retreat, where—like her
own beautiful flowers of which she was so
pasdonately fond—she grew, she• budded,
bloomed and died.

The angels bail an added flower of love."
