Election of County Superintendent
About halt' the School. Directors in the
county*ttended the Convention in the Court
[louse, on Tuesday, for the election of a
County tiuperinterient, in place .'of L. T.
Fisk, Whose term expires. Of course, in a
lay where the Republicans are so largely
te ascendancy as here, a considerable
majority of the Convention woald be mem
bers of that organization, and we:regret that
candor compels us to state that partisan' prej
udice was the controlling motivo among the
greater number. The candidates were 'Messrs
C. C. Taylor, of Elk Creek ; S. P. Mclntyre,
or Curry; L. W. S trage, of Springfield; L
T. Fisk, of Girard ; and P. IL Stewart, of
'North East. Of these gentlemen, Mr. Sw
age is acknowledged to be the best fitted for
the position, but he has seen proper to • et
with the Democratic party for some years,
and amore the majority of the Convention
that was sufficient reason for defeat. The
miserable party spirit which has foisted sp
many third-rate men into position, and dune
'lmre to retard the in teresta of our section
than :al other causes, has thus fastened itself
upon our commond school ss stein, and driven
from its service a gentleinan who of all oth-
erS was most competent to assume its super
vision. When= the day comes, if it ever will,
that our people can forget their political
wrangles, and choose officers on the,grotind
of merit, we may hope to see a reffirm in our
public administration, and not before.
The first business of-the Conventiiin was
to fix upon the Superintendent's salary. Mr.
Nesbitt, the leading Republican of Washing
inn township, considered $OOO per year as
fair pay, atid'the present salary of $l,OOO its
exhorbilant ! Mr. Wells, of Albion, a inure
intelligent, hut less intluenti d R Triadic: in,
was in - favor of $1.2)0.!, - The e Irj tine ,
mule a compromise between the two by re
raining the old salary of $l,OOO. On the
hirl ballot, Mr. Taylor received a majority
all the votes, and his election-was then
n tile unanimous. A resolutioa was adopted
expressing the Mier' that Ow valise wool I
he benefited by changidg the commencement
of the .01(ml year from the first or June to
the fog of May. i•
Mr. Taylor, the new Superintendent, is a
foting tuna, and is sai‘lio possess consider
able ability.' We trust tits' adrnitaistr:tion

-to the sumo causer,.
X --SuotiEsTrox.—Tlie fountains in the
ks arc completed abd command a large
share of attention. We • have only
to- sugg,est tliat, now tye have two
such fine ornaments in 'the Parks, there
may be an =attempt to keep the balance of
those localities in proportions Our eitv an-
thorities have a way of doing such
tent things :is to suitect theta to a very large .
amount of deservetl ridicule. For instance.
while, the fountains are playing in the a:ntre,
where is the harmony,of allowing the 'sides
of the parks and the fence' corners to :he
heaped full of market tables and madeAtte
receptacle of all ashes and filth tit thi:
surrounding properties ?' , What is the, object
of-keeping a pile of stone, like a Chin . Ne wall
in miniature, at the end of one 'Park, and a
mud-hole at the end of -the other? Why are
not the Parks laid, out in plots, anti rides
adopted for keeping ,(hem, In a -neat condi
tioti? Now, that an attempt is made at orua
meat, let us have 'all things in proportion.
With a little care, either Park might be made
- a spot of unexcelled beauty., and it is sincere
ly to be hoped that we have sufficient exec
utive talent and local pride to keep them as
they -should be.
FfRE INSERANCE.—Why is it that our citi
zens ao not inquire into the reasod fur ketfp'-
ing op 'fire insurance rates the same as, they
. were before the introduction of water? When
the water works were under discussion, we
were told that their completion would re-'
duce the insurance rates to an extent' that
would more than compensate for the addi
tional taxation: Why is it that this promlio
hies not been fulfilled? It cannot be disputed
that the risk from fire has been greatly dimin
ished, and if such, is the !act, our: Citizens
should have the benefit of it. We insist that
. rie shell not be made to pay raics-t least a
third higher for.insumnce than• other cities
with no better-taellities for extinguishing tires

Amid the crash of newspaper matter and

One silly project follows another, like
sheep plunging down a precipice.
The large fortunes made by 11304 , . who
have tried their handy-at-,the daily newspa :
per business in Erie, make hosts of others
anxious to get rich in the s►me way.
Meanwhile, the Observer travels steadily
on its course, preferring to be thought it little
old fogyish, rather than go beyond the limits
which the patronage of the city warrants,
and still adhering to the good old principle
that it is better to pay a hundred cents on the
dollar from one's honest earnings, than se
cure reputation for enterprfse at the expense
of other pdople's pocket books.
Stories are rife'that we propose starting a
new daily paper, but "if the Court knows
herself," we won't make a fool of ourself in
that maruier just at present. , '
The present crisis, however, ends the Ob
server "frill high advancedr with a stock of
material equal to all the necessities of the
public, prepared to do every kind of print

The . Nevr RegistrY Lew
The last Le:,-islatuie, among its o; her in
iquitous measures, passed a new Registry
Law, intended to meet the objections which
compelled the - Supreme Court to pronounco
the last ono• unconstitutional. It con airs
nearly all the odious features of the last one,
and, like it, is deSigned to restrict the suf
frages of the working men. The Supreme
Court will undonbtedly(lecide against its le
gality, as it is in clear conflict with . Art. 3d,
Sec. 1, of the State Constitution,. which Says:
"In elections by the citizens, °Very white
freeman of the age of` twenty-one years, hav
ing resided in the State one year, and hi the
election district wherele offers to vote, ten
days immediately .preceding such election,
and.within two ears paid a State or county
tits:, which shall have been assessed at least
ten days before election, shall enjoy the right
of an elector," -
_Vny law which does not accord with this
clause, cannot he kelt enlbreed. The rez
istry law places restrictions upon voters not
required hy;the Constitution, and in every
such respect is 4 no more force than if it
had been enacted by a mob in the Feejee

They are ail three to e tasen at t e same u me.
They cleanse the stomach, relax„t he I tver, sod
put it to work; then the ati, elite becomes g 000;
the, Mod d tg. sts and makes good blood ; the pa- -
tient begins to grow in flesh; the diseased mat
ter ril ens In the lungs, and the patient wit
grows the disease and gets a ell. This is the only
way to cure consurnpflon.
To these three medicines Dr. J. 11. Schenck,
of Philadelphia, ow. s his unrivalled success in
the treatmeht of pulmonar,v c , disumption. The
Pulmonie syrup ripens the morbid matter in
the lungs. nal ur,throws it oil ny an easy ex.
pretollillon, for when the phlegm or matter is
ripe, a sligliteougli will throw it off, and the
patient has rest awl the longs begin to heal.
To do this, the :seaweed Tome and Mandrake
Pills must be freely used to cleanseth. stomach
anti liver, so that the Pulnamic S.) fop and the
'food a ill matte good blood-
Schenek's Mandrake Pills act upon tile liver,
renivmz all obstructions., relax the duets of
gall-bladder, the bile starts Ireely,and the liver
is soon relieved; the stools will show what the
Pills can do; nothing has ever been invenitsd
except etsiontel to deadly poison which is sery

it is made into good blood without fermeutat ton
s nr scouring In the stomach.
The great rem-on why physicians do not cure
consumption is, they try too much: they give
medicine to stop thecough, to stop night sweals
to stop chills, hectic fever, and by so doing they
derange the whole digestive powers, °eking up
the se crettous, and eventually the patient sinks

stomach are made healthy.
If a person has Consumption of course the '
lungs in some way arc ffilr - easeti, either tuber•
cies, abscesses, bronohial irritation, pleura ail- •
hesion, or the lungs area mit.s of infliumrnai ion
and fast decaying. In such rinses what must be
done? It is noeonly the lungs that are wasting
but it is the whole body. The stomach and liv
er have lost their power to make blood out of
food. Now the only chance is to takeSchencit's
there meiheiens, whielr will bring up a tone to
the stomach, the patient will begin to want
food, it us ill digest easily and make good blood;
then the patient, begitis to gain in flesh, and as
soon as the body begins to grow, the lungs
commence to heal up, and the patient gets
fleshy and well. This is the only way to cure
When there Is no lung disease, and only liver
et auplulitt. and dyspepsia, tisdainisk's Seaweed
Tonic !tad Mandrake Pills are sufficient with
out the Pulmonie ss rap.- Take the Mandrake
Pills freely in all billions complaints, as they
are perfectly harmless.
Dr. Bchenek, who has enjoyed uninterrupted
health for tunny years past, and now weighs :25
poonds, was wasted away to a mere skeleton,
In the very la.st stage of pulmonary consump
tion, his pity siclans having pronounced Ms ease
hopeless and abandoned him to his fate. He /
was cured by the iffiiresald medteines,and since.)
