TIT.EY HAVE been iskting a fair at F.rie,
for Vie.ostensible parpose of raising a fund for
the erection of a Soldiyrs' and Sailors' coun
ty munumfr-nt." We have not referred to it
before, ill' the reason that we preferred not
to. aid advertising what we knew to be an
unnecessary scheme, that could only result
in tie misapplication of funds sadly needed
elsmliere for the alleviation of misery and
want; and, furthermore, because we , regarded
d as' the triekY effort of a special clique - 1A
cheaply advertise itself in the patriotic line,
at public exprnse.—Girard areiwpolier.
We regret to nod our, ctiremparary
ng such n sweeping charge against the mo
ivei of the ladies who conceived and have
thus far pressed forward so successfully the
project of erecting a monument to perpetu
ate the memories of our soldier and sailor
dead: In regard to the movement itself, there
may properly be differences of opinion, and
very likely arc, but here, where the leading
participants aro known, the purity and
triotism of their purposes will be defended
by all. They have made no attempt trk" ad-
vertise" themselves, "at public expense,"
as our cotemporary suggests, but have labor
ed - with a modesty, assiduity and tirelessness
that entitles them to all praise Wo.are sat
isfied that our friend of --- v` nm
too fairly ,v,,pused to be Willing to - do injus
tice to the ladies who have struggled so hard
in a cause which they at least belieye to be a
noble and deserving one, and hope to tee it
withdraw the unjust aspersions on their mo
tives which it has been led into making.
OUR NElorrucTs of the Dispatch, to cover
up their notorious blundering, have adopted
the "stop thief" principle of picking out the
little errors in the Observer, which they par
ade.before their astonished readers with a
grin of triumph most comical to witness.
Two of these they had the, good fortune to
"gobble up" in our lust edition, which were
duly presented, with the sagacious comments
',peculiar to our cotemporary. kinoderate
sample, to show what these comments are
like, will do for the first installment. Says
the Dispatch :
"If he wishes to injure the favorable opin
ion many have formed of the new German
paper, he has taken a very good method to
do so. lie states that the Dispatch office has
issued a new German weekly, and that it is
Republican in politics. Both are misstate
ments, as the Dispatch Company have noth
ing at all-to do with it ; and the publishers,
Messril.'Bret*l 4.5:, Atkinson. defy Mr. W. to
find a word about politics in it, or anything
that says it will take either side in political
We were not aware before that it was
such a damaging thing to say of a new pub
lication that the Dispatch office issued it, or
that it is Republican in politics, but as we
have our neighbors'- word for it, of course
there must be truth in the statement. The
circumstances of the case naturally led to
those conc i lusions, and if .we were wrong,
parties concerned will please consider our
meekest apologies tendered for innocently
taking such !'s good method"."to injarethe
favorable opinion many have formed of the
new Ger Mari paper." It is too respectable
looking a journal to,be loaded down at the
start with such a terrible calamity as our
neighbor represents, and we hasten to re
tract the foul and Unwarranted assertion.
ABOUT VELcterespEs.- , -.Tbe vel*pede, of
which sq much is lately: slid in the papers,
consists of two ordinary wheels one before
the other, ,(the two wheeled ones are the
best) connected by a steel or iron reach,
bearing a saddle in whiCh the rider sits. It
is driven by pedals attached.to the fore wheel
+hid' keep the rider's legs pretty busy. On
perfectly-.smooth track, such as a board
11 - nor, a new Nicolson or asphaltum pave
ment, or hard earth road in the country, it
, can be driven at the rate'of fifteen or twenty
miles an hour, without very gretit effort; but
on a rough road its propulsion is tearly im
possible. A crank is attached to the front
wheel, syhichisu.sed ter the double purpose
of guiding the machine and supporting the
rider. Considerable experience is required
before it can be ridden to advantage, and
it isn't best to get confident too soon of one's
ability •to manage the concern, as we can
testify fiont personal knowledge. Severs
young men of ourzitv have clubbed together,
and sent to New York for , one of the finest
velocipedes there, audit is not unlikely that
when the Nicolson pavement is finished on
Peach street, it will soon become a favorite
means of locomotion on that thoroughfare.

was thht of one .who in life-moved in influ

in a buggy, and placing it in a 'Sitting posture

and threw it over the fence, where it was*re
ceived by one of the-assistant sextons, put.'
in a wheelbarrow, wheeled to the grave
from which it had been taken,'dumped into
the hole, and buried, -.This is not the nest
time that a similar thing has been done at
this same cemetery, and, we- have no,doubt
if the graves were , all to be examined in the
Erie street cemetery, it Would be found that
a very large per emitage of them containe d nothing, but, a collie,. The invalgations
which the 'police are 'finking has as yet only
reached a starting point, but • enough has
beetrascettained to afford the belief ,that an
organized system of robbery has been carried
on there for several months past,' and per
haps longer. That there is a Collusion be
tween the cemetery authorities is proved by
an occurrence which took place on Wedr
nesdax. A search - warrant authorizingtthe
searching of the rie Street College was,
sworn out rif the Police Court, and DetectiVe
Schmitt was lent to execute' it. But before
this was' dyne, the authorities of the college
had been - notified If the intention to search
the place;•and on the arrival of the officer
had got their things into ship-shape, and,
of couise, - nothing suspicious was discovered.
Why this was done remains at present a
secret to those who did it, but it looks rather
suspicious, and also points to collusion on
the part of the sexton and his assistants with
those whq are believed to be guilty of one or
the gravest crimes known to the statute
book. , ' ti -
Dr. Usher Parson, the venerable and emi
nent physician, died to-day, aged 80 years.
He was the last surviving commissioned
officer of Commodore Perry's fieet.—Tets
gram. • rl
Thus another link is broken which bound
us to the past. There are now but few
survivors of the ever memorable 10th of
September, 1813, and soon - they will all be
"gathered to their fathers."
Dr. Parson was held in. high esteem by our
citizens, more particularly those of the olden
class, and early residents'. Every tew years
since those exciting times of the war of 1812,
he has made - us n visit, when his old friends
would vie with each other in pleasant greet
ings and attentions. On taking leave at his
last visit, he did so with much feeling, hav
ing a sort of presentiment that it would close
the scene; as 16 truth it has.
He was a native of York county, Maine,
entered the .13. S. service in 1812 as Sur
geon's Mate, and was attached to the U. S.
Sloop of War, John Adams, at New York,
when the war broke out. Most of the offi
cers and crew of that ship volunteered for
tho Lakes, and joined Com. Perry, at Erie, in
June, 1813. Dr. P. was attached to the Law-
rence, and was most honorably mentioned to
the Secretary of the Navy by Com. Perry, in
hiS, official report of the battle. . On the 15th .
of April, 1814, he, was commissioned Sur-
Aeon. fie 4terwards served with Perry on
board the Frigate Java on a cruise to the
Mediterranean, in 1816, and subsequently
with Corn. McDonough, in the Frigate Guer
riere, on a similar cruise, when, by leave of
the Government, he visited the hospitals
and Medical Schools in England and France :
obtaining much valuable information for the
benefit of that branch of the service. Ile
shortly after resigned.
In civil life, be was distinguished for his
ProfeasionUl skill and classical attainments,
and held several high and important posi
tions in our institutions of. learning. Dr.
Parsons not only combined eminence as a
protssional man, but all the virtues and
graces of a Christian gentleman. Peace to
his ashes. D.
THE MERCIIANTS' EsP,ltEse CO.—The New
York Sun, speaking of the consolidation of
this corporation with the American, says
"the idea of an Express company, 'to be
owned entirely by the class which chiefly
patronize such a corporation—the merchants
—was conceived in some , one of the busy
brains of Ross, or Beardsley, or Seward, of
Auburn, N. Y., in 1865. The project was
nois6d - abroad, subscriptions were obtained
for the stock all over the country, and on
the Ist of October, 1866, the company began
the business of carrying. For some time it
did well, and continued to extend its
branches, until finally it made use of more
lines of" railroad than any other company.
But this was done at a great expense ; in
tact, there does not seem to have ever been
any approach to economy in the manage
ment, and call after call was made on the
owners of stock, until 35 per cent. of the sub
scription was called in: The enterprise
might possibly have succeeded had it not
abandoned the original plan of being a com
pany. independent of all others, and in the
early part of this year; made an arrange
ment with the American, Adams and others,
to divide a certain portion 'of 'profits, the
Merchants' Union receiving about 26 per
cent. This was the fatal blunder which per
hapi caused and certainly hastened Its down
fall. From this point, in fact from an earlier
period, the business - of Carrying was con
ducted at a loss, and at last, on December 1,
the Merchants' Union was consolidated with
the Americamriuml its capital of $15,000,000
was taken Into the last named company. At
one lime the stock of the aetlinct , corpora
tion was at a premium, but bad management
has brought it low."
COMMESCIAL EDUCATION. - Every man
should know how to do business, and
how to keep an account of his business cor
rectly, else there is no certainty of his suc

most sure to succeed. A scholarship in the

has opened an office over Nick's drug, store,'
with the object of becoming a permanent'
resident of the city. Be is a young gentle.

THE ORPHANS' FAIR, in Farrar Hall, after
a suspension of two days, in the commence
ment of the week, owing to a prior 'engage
ment of the hall by other parties, resumed
on Wednesday, and will continue without
interruption as long as the patronage contin
ues encograging. The visitors tzt i lieF t ffi s Vy r
to a goodly •number without any—and the
noble purpose to which the proceeds arc to
be applied renders the public in general dii
posed to lend it a generous assistance.
TWENTY-FIVE cents a week Hid by and de
posited 'in a Sayings Bank, and continued
for ten years, will produce in one year $13.18 ;
in trio years $27.03 ; in three years $41.58;
in four years $5G.81; in five. years $72.91.
Laborers, mechanics, clerks and others who
depend on salaries or day wages, try the plan
of depositing one dollar per week for a year
in some Savings Bank, and you will be sur
prised at the result. It will encourage habits
of economy that too many neglect, and lay
the foundation of your future prosperity.
SAXE'S HEAD was clear when he wrote
"There's no friend in need like a dollar or
two." There is so much selfishness in hu
than nature that -human friends can seldom
be relied upon. In time of prosperity a man
never lacks for friendship, lnit let him get
down to a low point of adversity, and the
chances- are that his friends will disappear.
But, the greenback friend that Saxe talks
about can always be depended, on. Let a
man have a little money at -Ins cenuriand,
and he has a feeling of independence, even
under the most discouraging circumstances.
MERELY TO show what bad government
will, bring a community to, we copy the fol
lowing from the. Vicksburg Timei. Let the
warning be heeded in every locality where
the mania for improvement overbalances the
dictates of sound judgment : •
"City scrip has gone far below par, the
Corporation is badly in debt, the gas is shut
off kolyi every public lamp in the town, and
a judgment against the city, which was com
promised, provided a certain amount be paid'
by a given time, will put every dollar's worth
of public property under the hammer, unless
h something is speedily done."
Tau Westfield Enterprise says a little girl,
about eight years old, living five or six miles
south of North East, on Wednesday of last
week, about four o'clock, started fiom school
alone for.home in the midst of a snow storm,
accompanied by strong wind. Since that
hour nothing has been seen or heard of her,
and the residents of the neighborhood have
been diligently digging in snow banks and
looking everywhere. The poor little girl
doubtless became fatigued and benumbed
with cold, sought shelter behind some tree
or bUsh, and was buried beneath the snow.
A GENTLEMAN of this city has devised a
system for funding the public debt and secur
ing its payment, which, with the limited in
vestigation we have been enabled to give it,
seems to possess some noticeable features.
It provides for paving off fifty millions o f
the debt per year, and authorizes persona
holding bonds to exchange them for cur
rency at any time, thus securing what seems
to us an essential feature of all national finan
cial operations—an elastic currency which
can be increased or reduced, as the necessities
of the people require. Circulars giving the
leading: features of the proposed system
have been enclosed to many ot the , noted
men of 'the country, and it is probable that
before long it will he a topic of general dis—
cussion in financial circles.
TUE BASEMENT walls of the Lake Shore
Seminary, at North East are completed, and
the brick and other material for the building
I are on the gri'und ready for the commence.
ment of operations early in the spring. The
Star calls upon the people of North East to
forward the enterprise by liberal contribu
tions, and we heartily second its appeal.
We know of no more desirable location for-a
first-class institution of learning =than North
East, and now that its citizens have made so
much progress towards attaining one, it will
not do to stop short of the desired end. The
people of the city and other parts of the
county have an interest in the matter scarce
ly second to those of North East, and owe
it to themselves to furnish the enterprise all
the enconrageMent in their power. •
, Tire Rxrumacsx rejoices that President
Johnson baa issued his amnesty proclams ,
Lion, saying "no further need exists of laws
distinguishing between any class of citizens
at the South ; all are free all are fully pro::
tected by local law and:the strongarm of the
general government, and so we can safely
trust even Jefferson - Davis among his ohce
deluded followers." In taking this* position,
the Republican is sustained by- the New
York Tribune, and all the abler and more
independent organs of its party. It is only
"the little creatures whom God for some in
scrutable purpose" has taloned to become
connected with the newspaper press, (=ord.

zan ends by perpetuating the wrongs - and
