TRITBSDAY, NOV 10. 1881.
At the time of going to press, the
returns are so meagre on the . State
ticket, that we can hardly give . , an
approximate estimate; Wolfe, Inde
pendent, in 26 districts is -reported
as hiving over 800 votes. if the re
maining districts give the same-per
centage of their total vote to him,
he will have over. 1400 in the county.
Oar judgment is that the vote on
the State ticket will stand relatively
about •as follows: Bally (Rep.)
4,500; Noble, (Dem.) 3,000; Wolfe;
01;a:I 1,400. This would' give
Baily over Noble 1,500; Baily over
Wolfe 3,000; over both 000.
We have kept details only of the
vote on Register and Recorder.
With all but five towns official, and
those five estimated,. Webb, Rep.,
has majorities aggregating 1501,
,paid Cross, Dem., majorities aggre
4ating 1069. This leaves a majority
for Webb .of .432. The 101 l official
'_return may slightly vary this, but it
is very certain that Webb's majority
will not fall below 400, andihe is be
yond question elected. . The rest of
the Republican connty-licket is elec
ted by handsome majorities.
We have nothing to- indicate the
_ result on the State ticket in the State,
but if the same relative vote for
Wolfe, from the Democratic and
Republican parties, has been cast
in other sections of the State as in
Bradford, the , vote for him from. the
two parties will be nearly ' a stand off,
one against tho other; and Bally,
Republican is elected,
Next week we will give the official

iag A Sunday .patierof this city
has been publishing, for some time past
a series of exposures of alleged corrupt
dealings in the department, or at least
- of an extravagant administration of
affairs, knowledge of which it claims to
have on excellent authority. These
. charges have come to the public . in so
inany different.ways that they are be
7,inning to attract attention, k and. the
Republican leaders are 'Convinced that
. a thorough . ventilation of the' Depart
ment is needed, as much for the inter
est of the party as in justice to the
- persons accused. The cominginvesti
. palm by the Senatorial Committee
will, therefore, be very thorough.

Important Decisions.
, Wasamorox, Nov': 7.—The . United
States Supre . tde Court rendered a decis
ion to-day of importance to banks,
ir_•snrance companies, and all corpoia
lions employing agentl. It holds, that
when any . book account is designated
as one kept by deposit, or in a fiduciary
capacity, and the bank seeks to assert its
lien as a banker for the personal obli
gation of a depositor, known to kave
been contracted for his private benefit
the bank mu t be held as having notice
that the individual property of the de
positor, if it is shown to consist i
whole or in part, of funds held by 'hi
n i
in a trust- relations i
The Court farther holds, that if the
money held by a pertion in a fi.lnciaryi
capacity, though not a trustee, has beetit
paid by him to his account at his hank i L
er's, the person for whom be holds the
money can Jollow it, and has s charge
on the balitnee in the banker's hands,l
even though it_is mixeth (they
depositor's) own mone y Also, that'
the bank cannot be permitted to asstfrt
its own claim , to the balan .e of an agen
cy account, as against the equity , of a ' ,
bendlcial owner, when the , bank hat
notice, eitllr actual or constructive, ofl
such equity. •
In another the court holds that the
penalty also for non-payment - of Omni
lams, expressed in the polictes . of insur-j

of a potato famine in this country has
occasioned the importation of tons of
the genuine Irish potato,' to this port,
and many barrels of them were yester
day- displayed at the stores of Head &
Co.. in Dey-street, near the • North
Rivar. A Times reporter was theie
informed that in 1876 and again two
years age potatoes of Irish birth as it
were, travele I across the ocean and
were freely distributed throughout the
United States. Tre English dealers,
it is said; heard the cry of a potato
famine raised here thiS year, and lost
no tima in making shipments of the
vegetable to this country. It is net
claimed at ti is' time •by dealers here
that there is a scarcity of native pota
toes, but it is said that there are more
of them in this city than anywhere
else. While the American potatoes
are sold at irons. $2!50 to $3 a barri , l,
the ,product Ireland can be shipped
to this country and an agreeable profit
realized' by the dealers who 'sell them
at from $2.25 to $2.50 a barrel. The
Irish potato bears a close: resemblance!
to the kifid raised in Ainerica. •It is,
perhaps, of more solidity,- and is said
to be a rare andiSeuticing dish. On .

Nor does this escap_a Judge , Black.
His own consistent - attitude is. not
that of a special pleader, but of the
general convert. - As a revelation
Christianty rests its claim's on ,human
testimony. In : the providence of God
this treasure is committed to earthen
vessels. Whether there be prophecies,
they shall fail; whether there be mira
cles, they shall cease; but the broad and
common current of human witness to
the Divine power of the Written Word,
proeP:eding out of the throne of God,
this shall not fail, though heaven: and
earth pass away. Judge Black, bril
liant in rhetoric and strong in logic,
adds but one to the great , army of
witnesses, Whose - rank hold the fore
most men in each generation through
eighteen Christian centuries. For him
as for them, the embracing faith of
Christendom, which today laps the
globe, upbears the faith of nations and
the hopes of individual men, as the
seas bear with unconEcious ease the
fisherman's shallop and the fleets. of
With a cause whose presence in
history is its own sufficient defence,
Judge Black not unnaturally deVotes
himself to dealing out justice by the
line and rightousness to the plummet
for the editor of the North Antericarr
Review, whc, first, to paraphrase Judge
Black's statement, sought Judge Black's
aid in the name of Christianity and
then denied him space fo:i ins own
proper. nd personal defense in the
interest and at the request of his as
sailant. Mr. Ingersoll may well be
praised for the prudence which led him
to protect himself from . the appearance
of Judge Black's refutation on the heels,
of his own attack, but scarcely for the
kindness:,which made him interpose
Mr. Riie; thC editor .of the North
Americirni Bedew, as' 7,11,. shield and
buckler against the ine vitable fall of
Judge Black's trip-hammer, which in
its tray has, forged .= weapons for
causes with which Tice Press has no
sympathy, but which is never known
to smite in vain or to fall without
smashing something.: It, has been
impossible for the world at large to
pay any but. a genial attention to A.
Thorndike Itice;but it, is impossible
for the world of - readers' to fail of
having a keen interest in any , one
*whom ! Judge' Black honors with his
d'ssection. _The - beetle is probably.
never in love - with :.the naturalist's

such, secure -in the i mmorality which
accompanies the naturelilt's_attenlious.

For the' rest, Judge Black haS
wisely joined issue in' his great i con

and enduring position which , appeals
alike to the unlearned and the l 'ietterd.
The dominance of law aid the \ ( st,able

Hannifin took the infant, a bright lit

officer took it into the depot to see
about it. 'Wily.' said the depot mas

A pen BLoW- von SIMON. —A Corry
(Pa.) correspondent of the Cleveland
Herald relates the following:—Tlie fol
lowing little ineident, , which I am quite
sure has never been in print, - will be
read With interest, as showing how
some of ex-Senator Cameron'sloyhood
nature lingoes into old age:-
Some time after President Hayes had
forgotten to send-Pennsylvania% candi
-date to the Court lof St. James, a select
party, mostly young people, were gath
ered in the Cameron mansion. The
party-were' discussing- table etiquette,
and the theme suggested a_ recollection
to the venerable Senator.-
'Mary,'• he said, suddenly, addressing
one of his favorites, 'I know why
Hayes didn't uppoit t:Me to the Eng
lish mission.' ;
' Why was it, Senator Cameron?' was
Maiy's quick rejoinder, while' the
young people ceased couveis.itipn, and
gtitherefl round to. listen.
• shortly after he was inaugurat
ed I was invited to dine with a party of
friends at the White Hou,e, and went.'
At the table I found that I had left my
handkerchief at home, and so blew my
got-darned nose on one of his• napkins.

On Time.
The merry Christmas season is drawing
near; the year grows decrepit; and feels al
ready the chilly hand of winter striking to its
heart. The small boy of the period begins to
count the - days to Christman and checks" them
off, one by_ one as they pass, swill, a smile - for
those that have vanished, and an O'Donovan
Bossa sort of desire to aunihalo those . that
are to come. The young man medi`ates on
the new leaf he is resolved to turn with the
New Years, and decides theta few more
black marks on the the leaf at present open
will be rather a good thing than otherwise, as
tending to make the leaf-turning process
aforesaid more pleasing and striking; and the
maiden dreams of Christmas parties and New
Year calls, with, it may be, a trifle of super
stitions veneration for the ancient rite of the
Mistletoe Bough, Papa, inspecting his bank
account, thinks Christmas gifts a nuisance,
but supposes he'll have to make some all the
same: Mama's deft fingers are • busy nith
cunning needlework, while her mind, adverts
to mince pies-and puddings of the plinn: and
meetings of the smaller fry aro held in secret
places to discuss the enthralling question,
"what do Sonimpose we'll; get," or the less
absorbing; propcsitioo, "what bad we-hotter]
"give." • : < ' I
'Meanwhile, those whose special business it
is to miniater , to the wants of Christmas keep
ers, have fiot been idle: in proof whereof the 4

The amount of information about Chtist-
Matt OW that the publishers have managed
to compress into the present lone of this pep
blar magazine, is astonishing. Besides the
usual illustrated account of the Fashionti iu
dresser, bonnets, etc.. the whole Christmas
market passed in review, and the choice,t
articles of foreign and domestic Make, suita
ble fof presents, are illustrated and described.
For the older folks are all the newest designs
in china. majolica, silver ware, embroideric s,
baptizes, clocks, etc.;

books and games, sibilant, dressiug cases,'

that chirp and sing like live canaries; there
are w' oudetful savings tanks, that perform
such curious antics with ,each,depot.i', that

The patient is a man forty years old; had suffered
fifteen years. Its eyes, scalp and nearly his

Had had the attention of twelve different physt.
clans, who prescri ' a retnediea known
to the profession such as iodide potassium.
arsenic. corrosive sublimate; sarsaparilla. etc.
Had paid $5OO for °dies' treatinent with 'but
little relief. I prevailed np m htht to use: the

and etructras Sort externally. He did so, and
was compte/st cured. The skin on his bead, &cc,

sented a most loathsome appearance, is now as
soft an I smooth as an infint's, with no scar or
