Upon the return of the President, the
Assistant Secretary. of 'War, provided for
by an net of the last session of Congress,
will be appointed. The matter has not yet
been considered by the President, but the
impression is that a civilian rand not an
army officer will be appointed':
• The Pittiton Gazette saYft that a gentle

about it is that Stewart's father will vote

In no possible way would the election of
any candidate for Governor affect the tariff

trash! A Democratic Governor, elected on
a "tariff for revenue only" p'atform, if an
honorable man, would in acting upon a bill
apportioning anew the Congressional dis

The announcement that a company has,
been formed for the riurpose of sending
dressed meat from the western cattle mar
kets to the eastern centres of consumption,
will be received with great,satisfaction by
those to whom the prevailing high price of
meat is a serious item in the expense of liv
ing, for it holds out a promise ot cheaper
meat in the future. That the plan is fea
sible is proved by the success of 'the trans
atlantic shipments, and the expectation
that a reduction of prices can in this way
be effected is grounded in reason.
From all indications it is not at all proba
ble that Hon. C. C. Jadwin's successionlin
Congress will be disputed. • The custom has
been to give the member from this diStrict
more than one term and for a very good
reason. During the first two years in Con
gress it is hardly possible for the member
to become more than just acquainted with
the condition of affairs there and the work
of the committees. A second term is :ctin
sidered necessary 'to give any member a
fair chance. Mr. Jadwin :has been very
active in looking after the interests of the
people, and especially of the soldiers.l--Troy

. Department figures,
says the North American, considerably
o'er five hundred thousand citizens are
rated as . deserters from the army, bein g a
proportion of about one in four of the tonal
number engaged in the suppression of the
rebellion, As a matter of course many' of
these desertions were merely technical, and
during the recent sessions several -pricato
bills were introduced for the relief of some
of•the alleged delinquents. If the matter
stopped there, it might not be' of sufficient
importance to demand comment, but when
it is known that this process opens the way
- to the public Treasury and- restores claims
- for Pay and allowances, it will occur to
many People that further steps in this direc
tke Amid be taken with Oat care: The
are that otherwise a gigantic
raid on the national maxima may be look
ed for. It is well enough `to relieve a man
from the consequences of his error, so far
as penalty is concerned, but to give him a
bonus in addition is the very prodigality. of

k now thought that thiknumber of em
igrants to arrive at Now York during the
current year will fall considerably short of
the orig,inal estimates, theral having been a
considerable falling -off in . 'arrivals for the
couple of months last past. The present
calculation is that from now . until the end
of the year we cannot expect more than
150,090 at the outside, so that less than half
a million will have'arrived at that 'port for
the year. The previous semi-official esti

• .It is probable that many of the proud but
'debt-bm,lened nations of the old world
will note with amazement that dur
ing the summer month of August, when our
entire community seemed given up toyest
and recreation, the grand work of wiping
out our national, debt was going on silently
but swiftly at a stupendous pace. Taking
working-day it twelve hours, the process
of reduction was carried out at the rate of
a fraction over forty-three thousand and
ten dollars per hour, or nearly seven hun

grand total for the month being about Six

"Train up a child in the way it "should

Bank burglary, says the Fidladelphia
North American, as a fine art,' has Made
rapid strides in the past few years, not only
in its methods but in its men. The burly
ruffian with a crowbar and a file lias been
supplanted by the sleek, broadcloth attired,
plausible villain, who is almost certain to
be a Sunday-schoOl teacher and a shining
light in his : community. The Kewanee
Bank robbery is an apt
_illustration. i All

ful commercial pursuits; yet they were sor

the brute courage possessed by the danger
ous classes, as it is customary to term those
who risk their lives in the 'pmseention of
their nefarious designs. For men who thus
`betray their trusts mere imprisonment is I
not sufficient; the public igominy of the lash

Thel Keely motor is coming tethe front
again.l At a meeting of parties interested,
held in Philadelphia recently, the inven
tor announced that In had at lad Overcome
the difficulties of his invention, and that the
work on his motor was practically finished
with the exception of applying the power
to the various machines to be run by its

Mr. Boekel, who was • appointed by the
courts some time ago, at the request of , the

Mr. McPherson, cliairnian- of the
Committee on Resolutions then read
the'iep)rt of the Committee:as follows.,
whichwas adopted: -.
Resoliccl, That we, the 'Republicans of,
Bradford county in_ convention assembled,
do re-affirm' our devotion to the principles
of the Republican party.; and claim that
slavery abolished, a rebellion overthrown,
the South re-united and reconstructed, specie
payment resumed, hard times endured, and
prosperity regained did not end its mission,
but that the best interests and most genu
ine reforms of the future, demand its Con
tinued:supremacy in both State and nation.
ReScilred, That in the- State of Pennsyl
vania wheroc`plcksperity for many years has
resultbd, from a protective tariff, any
attempt . by its artful enemies tc;,divide the
ißepublican Party (which party has always
been the friend of protection), Or to bring
the Democratic party into power (Which
party has always. been the friend of free
trade), should be oppesed to the utmost by
all wise, far-seeing and prudent inen.' • .
Resolred, That we heartily • enclonte the
platform of -the Republican State Canyon-
Lion, and believe that it respected 016 pop
ular will in the seleCtion of candidates,' pas
sensing in an eminent degree fitness for their
respective placeS upon, the 'ticket, ' which
should secure for it the earnest support of
all true republicans. That in the selection
of the Hon. W. T. Davies for Lieutenant=
Governor, Bradford county feels 'justly
honored ; and that his' friends should rally
tolhe support of Gen. Beaver and the en
tire State tioket, and thereby shoW that
this county appreciates the honor conferred
by the State in his - nomination. I
Resolved, That as- the representatiies of
the republican sentiment of Bradford cannty
we declare that it is the duty of the legisla
ture to submit to a vote of .the people, a
proposition to so amend - the constitution of
the State as to prohibit the manufacture
and sale of intoxicnting liquors, except for
nieircinal and mechanical purposes.
At the conclusion of the reading of
the resolutions, on motion the It.;onven-

is an intimate friend of Walt Whitman,
"What sort of mania ho ?" • "He is a man
of the greatest refinement " in Conversation,
and, Ilielieve, in life also—a man to whoni
children and dumb animals „are always at
tracted." • But she added, "I regret that
ho has chosen to publish certain writings of
his, although d tun sure they were Written

people enjoy the utter change. of "camping
out" in the heart of uncivil Nattn*. The
familiar denizens of the. woods and "moun
tings" are at a loss to untlerstand their
charms for "city folks." Walt Whitman
has written some things for' decent People
to skip, as in walking they skip a .mud-hole
instead of - wading through. it. a person
whose pental perceptions .. are not alert
enough to discern a mud-hole in print, and
to skip it without i touching.is a person Who
ought'not to have learned to read or,ought,
rather, to have' completed that education.
He could put in his time - better chopping
1 wood. But Whitman has written other
things that have the primeval, unadorned
beauty of Greek sculptures. " These are
more enjoyed in England than' here, . be
