brothers and 1 sister. He was next to the

family has made the Elder's birthday a time
to como togethrr for a days enjoyment. So
on this occasion they met ---at the Elder's
house in Roseville, Tioga Co. About 125
were present. Among them every living
child of the Elder (7) and the family of his
deed son.. After social converse and' a
bountiful dinner they. all -gathered in the
Baptist church and were welcomed by the
Then Daniel Watson, Esq., who had been
asked to take charge, called . on Rev. C. T.
Hallowell who responded in a brief.address;
he was followed by Elder .Amos Mansfield
(82 years of age) who had been acquainted
!with Elder R. for 40 years. He said he
had served Chris over 70 years and could
now sincerely recommend Him as a good
Master. Of Elder R. he said he is "sot." in
his way (Elder M. is_a Methodist, Elder R. a
Baptist) and he was quite sure . that he was
so "sot" in his heavenly way that all of tbe
devils could not turn him from it. ,

upon, he said the ministers had stolen his
Jipeech yet he made a very pleasant and
!profitable address, • if he will only heed it.
, He paid a glorious tribute throughout his
'address to his aged uncle. He called at
tention to the fact that in that gathering 3
generations were represented. Of the

fn all of the large family not one death
had occurred within the year.

We find the following telegram in the
daily papers of. Saturday last : ;
Arnanv, N. Y., Sept. 4—Among the
companies which filed certificates of incor
poration in the Secretary of State's - office
to-day is the Binghamton and Williamsport
Railroad Company of Binghaiaton ; capital
$400,000- The length of 'the *hoed is. to
be twenty miles, and it is to run from
Binghamton to a point on the 'division line
between New York and Binghamton and .
thence by the most feasible route to)Wil
This looks like a revival in a tangible
form of the project of building a railroad
from Binghamton toWilliamsport viaWysox
creek, crossing the Susqnehanna at Towan
da, thence by the valley of the Towanda
creek to Canton, thence to Williamsport.
The State of New York can only grant a
charter for that part of the road , to be built
in that State.; Our own State has granted
a charter_ to the - Bradford Railroad Com=
panyfor that portion of the road to be
built in our own State. We hope the - work
may soon be commenced.
The .. fair of the Troy Farmers' Clubfor
the year 1882 was the most successful One
in the histtiry of the society. The exhibits
in all departments were decidedly better
than informer years, and the interest tif,
the publ i c seems to be on the i ncrease. If
aaything' can be judged by the attendance
and the satisfaction generally exprezed
may say that the fakhas entered upOn a
new era of prosperityi and it is reasonable
to hope ~for a more ! enthasiiistie meeting
nett year than even the present.
no buildings were occupied by the usual
exhibits` ,of Merchandise and presented a
very attractive appearance. On the
grounds were fine exhibits of machinery
and farming implements, and a very cred
itable; Aonr of wagons, carriages and bug
gies. The stock department shows a large
increase in , numbers and the quality of the
exhibits was even finer than 'in previous
years. Horses chdmed more attention than
usual;and the improved track gives greater
facilities for eahibiting them in regard to
speed and other qualities.
In thorough bred cattle we find some fine
specimens of short horns. One calf less
than - a year old weighing over thirteen
hundred. . The exhibits of Ayreihires Jer
seys, Devons , and Holsteins were good and
show an improvement over former year's.
There were some very fine specimens of
grade cattle and a number anatives. Of
work oxen and steers '
we noti ce an unusual
number with the quality much improved as
compared with - former exhibits.
- ' The display of horses this year was better
than formerly, both in respect to the num
ber present and the far greater advantage
in showing them off.on the new track.
Sheep were- represented 'by Cotswolds,
Leicesters, Southdowns, 314'rinos and many
other breeds. In the swine department
there were some, beautiful specimens of
Chester Whites, Brrkshires, Cheshires, etc.
poultry was represented by turkeys in good
variety, geese, ducks, guineas and brahmaa
In the line of farm products were packages
of butter, dairy cheese, wheat in great
variety, barley, corn and millet.
The vegetable department was one of the
finest exhibits ever seen at a country fair,
and comprised too great &variety for men
tion here. In manufactured articles of -all
isorts there was an abundant display In
On ladies department the exhibits were in
excellent taste and the floral display was
exceedingly beautiful. All the departments

, The Advertiser's Sayre correspondent
writes that paper as follows: "The ad
ministration of the rite of confirma
tion,';` to an unusually large number
of .persons at the church of the
Redeemer, on Sunday last was more
than ordinarily impressive. It was con
ducted by the Rt. Rev. Bishop Howe. The
'tender„ and deeply solemn manner in which
the venerable bishop, invoked the divine
blessing upon each oneho * ed before him,
preyed that to him it was an ordinance of
vital significance. The scene brought
vividly to mind the picture so beantifidly
painted by Longfellow; in his "Children of
the Lord's Supper." The sermon following
was fpunded upon Ephesians iv. 30. "And'
grieve not the holy spirit God in whom ye
were sealed; unto the !day of redemption."
He presented .no broad, liberal road for the
christian to walk in; involving ,an easy
going life of small sins,but rather; that
same old "narrow way" pointed out by
Christ, who alone is "the way, ihe truth
and the life." He insisted that the fruit of
the spirit could be fnund only where the
spirits work; regenerntion has been accom
plished. We may look in 'vain for' a titre
christian character. nuless the.right foun= .
dation is laid, "Christ the chief corner
stone." He charged! than) who- received
the outward marks of consecration, that
they be not unfaithful to their vows.
Whatever course they might pursue in life,
these would still be Upon them., Like the
brinfi 14 Cain, they can never be removed.
God will hoathem re . sponsible at the judg
ment; The music was especially , adapted
to the occasion and added greater solemnity
to the hour."

the ballot, being the only authorized method
of exercising their authority as rulers, we
earnestly urge all in sentiment oppos ed to
