JOHN M. 4 W. C. NE6LEY. PROP'BS.
SEVERAL communications have been
crowded out this week for want of
space to insert them.
THKRE will be no session of the
Legislature this winter to disturb the
public mind, for which the people of
the State will feel thankful.
MB. ANTHONY ALLEN, of Zelieno
ple, has been appointed by the Com
missioners Mercantile Appraiser of
this county for the coming year.
COURT convened again on Monday,
with Judge McJunkin and Associates
Storey and Dodds on the Bench. The
trial of criminal cases is progressing,
an account of which will be given
IN a case before tbe Supreme Court
from Washington county, at the late
term, a test question as to whether a
wife or a mother is heiress to the estate
of an illegitimate child, was decided
in favor of the mother.
THE editor of the Eagle, Thomas
Robinson, Esq., affects not to under
stand why the Pittsburgh Commercial
Gazette should allude to hirn in con
nection with the National bank affairs
of this place. To any one who bad
been noticing tbe slang and insinua
tions used toward Mr. Reed in the
Eagle, it was not surprising to see
that Mr. Robinson should have got a
shot back in a tender place. And be
sides, a near relative of Mr. Reed is
one that may lose money in the bank
by tbe failure, so far, of its debtors, like
Mr. Robinson, to pay what they
owe it. His piteous whinings and
begging of mercy from tbe Gazette is,
therefore, all characteristic hypocrisy
and deceit. His insinuations lately as
to this paper have been equally ma
licious and false, to which, until now,
we have paid no attention. Last week
be charges that tbe Gazette and CITI
ZEN are organs of what he terms a
syndicate, whatever that may be. In
reply we have only to say that, unlike
him, we are tbe organ of no person or
persons, save only of the right, and t-i
give news to the community that it
onght to have. In regard to tbe Na
tional bank, ont of consideration for
some parties, we hive not given all
that perhaps should have been. He,
being a debtor to the bank, accounts
for his different action and motives.
Bnt tbe public are not deceived. Cov
ering up property with mortgages and
giving other parts away, as is alleged,
and then biding behind tbe name of
another in tbe abuse be puts in bis
paper, is bad enough, but deceives no
one. But all tbis has caused the fre
quent expressions used in this commu
nity when bis manners are referred to,
soch as "natural sneak," "hypocrite
and liar," "a nuisance," etc.
Death of Judge Ketcham.
Hon. Winthrop W. Ketcham, Uni
ted States Judge for tbe Western Dis
trict of Pennsylvania, died suddenly
at his hotel in Pittsburgh, on Saturday
night last, from apoplexy. Judge
Ketcham was a very amiable arid
worthy man and a true friend. He
was also an able and impartial Judge,
and bis integrity on tbe Bench or in
any other official position he ever held,
was never questioned. He was ap
pointed Judge in 1876, in place of
Hon. Wilson McCandless, resigned,
and bis death makes a vacancy that,
from tbe duties of that office, will have
soon to be filled. There are but few
public men whose death will be more
sincerely regretted. He was aged 58
years. His remains were taken to
tbe place of his family
Tho President's Meesage.
Tbe most important parts of Presi
dent Hayes' recent message to Con
gress will l>e found upon the first page
of the CITIZEN tbis week. They will
be read with interest and all approved
of, excepting his recommendation or
views as to the retiring of the legal
tender or greenback currency. His
views on this took the country gener
ally by surprise, coming so soon after
resumption and the successful efforts
of tbe Government in getting the
greenback at par with coin. All par
ties are of the decided opinion that
money matters are working so well
that there should lie a rest from any
agitation, and hence the President's
views were immediately opposed by
bis party friends in Congress and by
tbe Republican press generally, and
he has wisely abandoned tbern or
at least caused it to Is: known that he
has no desire to further press them.
Death of John T. Bard, Esq.
John T. Bard, Esq., of Centreville,
tbis county, died at his residence on
Thursday last, aged 63 years. But
few men of the county were better
known or exercised more influence
than Mr. Bard. In business matters
be was a man of decided tact and
energy, and as a party leader always
bad a controlling influence with his
friends. In 1851 he was elected Pro
tbonotary of the county, and on sev
eral occasions since was chosen to posts
of honor by bis party, the last of
which was as the Democratic nominee
for Congress in tbis district, in which
position be displayed that honesty of
purpose and principle that distin
guished bim through life. Although
defeat stared him in the face he yet
adhered to bis standard. He will be
remembered and bis personal charac
ter admired by all who knew him.
His funeral, we understand, was very
largely attended on Friday last.
The Butler Back.
HON. JOHN M. GREF.R AND THOS. BOB
INsON, E>Q.. DISOIJARtiED AFTER A
FL'LL HEARING ON SATURDAY.
Some three weeks ago criminal in
• formations were made against the offi
cers of the Butler National Bank, and
in one of its informations Hon. John
M. Greer and Thos. Robinson, Esq..
were charged with being aiders aDd
abettors, in having had a note for
$1.212.65 discounted by the bank when
they, tbe officers of the institution,
knew them to be insolvent. Bail wa=
entered for their appearance o'n Satur
dav last, when a hearing took place.
• Both tbe parties named proved to tbe
satisfaction of U. S. Commissioner
McCandless that they did not connive
with the officers of tbe bink, and that
they were innocent of wrong intention,
and" that they believed they would be
able t3 pay tbe note and intended
doing so. The Commissioner dis
charged them, as there was no evi
dence showing any fraud.
The above we clip from the Pitts
burgh Commercial Gazette of Monday
and publish it in justice to the parties
i named, just as we published from the
seme paper when the informations
were made against them. We could
not see at the time how they could be
implicated as mere borrowers from the
1 bank, but did not know what evidence
might be produced on the charge of
aiding and abetting the taking of so
much of its funds. People are in the
! habit of getting money from banks if
' they can, and its tbe bank's business
to know whether they are solvent or
: insolvent before they get the money.
! In this case it therefore rests on the
management of tbe bank, and Messrs.
Greer and Robinson having shown
that they used no fraud in obtaining
the money, or at least no evidence
being produced to that effect, they
were properly discharged.
Editor* Citizen —Having in" com
pany with a great many others l>een
compelled to pay a royalty on a patent
slide or roller gate, arid finding that
the parties have no right under the
rulings of tbe United States District
Court to collect the same, I deem it
my dutv to make public the following
decision which I clip from the Ameri
"The suit* for th<> recovery of a royally on a
farm gate extonshrelv used in Michigan an<i
other State* of the North went, have l««n set
tle adversely to the plaintiff, by a decision in
the United Stnt/« District Court, at Detroit,
this week, Monday. The contrivance in qnes

on a stationary cross-piece, or rolling on a
roller, till the gate U removed half across the
gateway, and then, being balanced, swins(i:ig

gates is a ifreat favorite with the community,
as it can all lie made in a few hour*, and can
be bandied with the greatest convenience.
Huits were brought against a large number of
fanners in the eastern part of the State, and
several thousand dollars were collected in a
single county before the defendant- eould bring

first content was with a elaim tinder the so
called Lee patent, iu wl.ich the parties demand

decided by the United Stales Court at Detroit
was brought under the Teal patent. The

CONGRESSMAN Harry White, of the
Indiana district, in this State, proposes
to introduce in the House a resolution
to amend tbe National Constitution, in
reference to appropriation bills, in a
way which ought to satisfy everybody,
and secure unanimous support both in
Congress and in the Legislatures of
the several States. His amendment
will provide, as the Constitution of
Pennsylvania now does, that appropri
ations" shall be stated by items, and
that any one of these may be voted,
without afTecting the remainder of the
bill. This arrangement provides one of
the best safeguards against jobbery or
recklesscxpendituies; it would save the
country, with a fearless and independ
ent Executive, millions of dollars per
annum. Mr. White also projKJses to
provide that tbe general appropriation
bills "shall contain nothing but appro
priations for the ordinary expenses of
the different departments of the Gov
ernment, ami interest on the debt. All
other appropriations shall be made by
bills containing only items of appropri
ations relating to tbe subject matter of
the bill." This would exclude "politi
cal riders," and would prevent the quar
rels arid contentions between Congress
aud the President, growing out of at
tempts by tbe former to compel him to
accept legislation by putting it in a bill
with the needed supplies for carrying
on the Government. Mr. White's amend
ments are wise in principle, and ought
to be made part of the organic law at
J I;ST twenty years ago yesterday,
John Brown was hanged at Charlea
town, Virginia. With a little baud of
twenty men he seized llar|>cr'a Kerry
for the purpose of inaugurating a grand
liberation of the slaves. Nothing could
have been more foolhardy, and in a
short time the old man and his little
band were besieged in the engine house
of the Government arsenal. The Vir
ginia militia discreetly kept out of the
range of Brown's rifles, but a company
of United States marines carried the
place by assault after tbe old man was
severely wounded, and nearly all his
adherents including his two sons were
killed. Brown was tried and hung for
treason, and the heroic manner he bore
himself throughout won the admiration
of his enemies. Gne of Brown's party
was a colored man named Anderson,
whose father lived in West Chester a
number of years. Anderson escaped
capture with another man by being cut
off from the engine house by the cordon
of troops, and when they found them
selves unable to join their commander,
fled to Pennsylvania.— Village Record,
BRIDMKSAND KOAIJU.—In all parts of
the State there is a demand for free
bridges, the old toll system having be
come odious to the great mass of people.
There is no doubt that toll bridges art:
vn impediment to travel and an in
jury to local merchandising. But be
fore we have a system of free bridges,
let us have better township roads.
The township roads of Pennsylvania
are not what they ought to Is:, arid never
have been. In the meantime let the
agitation on the subject of free bridges
be coupled with a movement for Im

LONDON, NOT 22.—A letter from
Autofopasta, in a supplement to the
Star and Herald, Panama, giving tbe
details of the fight with the Peruvian
iron clail Huascar,says: "The scenes
on board the Huascar at the moment of
tbe surrender, baffled description, and
on seeing the wreck composed of pieces
of thick iron twisted into every eon
eeiveable shape, splinters of wood,
broken rifles, swords and furniture, all
mixed UJI with fragments of flesh, the
deck flowing in blood, one could gaze in
wonder at the deadly effect of modern
arms. The cabin of the commander
was a wreck, and where it existed were
a number of dead bodies. The only
part that could be found of Commander
Grau was a foot and the small part of
one leg. Tbe body of the second com
mander was in a frightful condition,
one of the balls had struck him on the
head, carrying the whole of the upper
part away and leaving only a fragment
of the lower jaw, with a part of the
beard attached. In the right leg were
four wounds, and the right arm and
side were completely mashed. Accor
ding to the Huascar's roster there are
over sixty persons missing. These are
accounted for by the statement that
from tbe bursting of shells some of the
crew were blown into the sea, while
others were torn into fragments. One
shot killed eighteen persons. So rapid
and fatal was the firing that the deck of
the Huascar was completely cleared,
and it was difficult to find one to run the
risk of coming up to lower the flag,
four in succession having lost their lives
in the attempt, until it was successfully
accomplished by a negro. It is thought
that $30,000 will make the Huascar fit
for sea and tight again, although her
whole upper works were knocked to
pieces by the Chilian lire.
Uncle Sam's Pensioners.
An abstract is given below of the an
nual report of the lion. J. A. Bentley,
Commissioner of Pensions to the Sec
retary of the Interior:
On the 30th of .June last there were
242, persons in the United States
receiving pensions from the Govern
ment. The pension list is now larger
than at any previous time. The high
est point heretofore reached was in
1873, but the number now reported ex
ceeds the list of that year by 4.344.
The present list is composed as follows:
Army invalid pensioners, 125,158.
Army widows, children and depend
ent relatives, 81,174.
Navy invalids, 1,844.
Navv widows, etc., 1,772.
Surviving soldiers of the War of
Widows of deceased soldiers of the
War of 1812, 2,110.
During the year 31,346 new names
were added to the list; 908 names which
had previously l>ecn dropped from the
rolls, mainly from a failure for three
y«iars to claim their pensions, were re
stored, and 13,4'J7 names were for vari
ous reasons dropped. The aggregate
amount of one year's pension to all
pensioners is $25,493,742.15, but the
actual annual payment exceeds that
sum by several millions of dollars.
Important to Pensioners.
The following circular has been is-
Hued from the Department of the Inte
rior, Pension Office :
To Peru/ion Claimant* and their At
To enable this office to dispatch with
better facility the rapidly increasing
current of business, a change in the sys
tem of arranging records and files has
been made, which will render it neces
sary that all inquiries for the condition
of pension claims on account of service
rendered after March 4, 1801, should,
contain the name of the soldier who
performed the military service, with his I
State, company and regiment, as well
as the number of the claim or pension
certificate, as the case may be. Inqui
ries which do not contain the above in
formation will not bo answered, except
in special cases where the failure to fur
nish it is explained.

A NEW POSTAL REGULATION. — A
postal regulation has been in force now
for two months, which is not well
known among business men, or it
would be more generally availed. We
refer to the fact that statements, bills,
etc., can now be mailed in an unsealed
envelope with a one-cent stamp. Thus
the many monthly statements which
are made out by wholesale arid retail
dealers each month can Is: mailed for
one cent, but no writing other than the
legitimate bill can be placed upon tbe
statement. No such words as "please
remit" can Is*, neither can a bill receipt
ed be sent. If it is necessary to have
the words "please remit" on the state
ments or bills, they can l»e printed as
part of the heading. Publishers of
newspapers have the right to enclose
bills for subscription in their papers,
and also receipted bills for the same, but
riot to write the words "please remit,"
which, however, may Is: printed on the
bill without infringing the law.
CONOKESMMAN FEI.TOW, of the 7th
Georgia District, has written a letter
in which be declares bis intention of
not affiliating with the Democrats in
the present session of Congress. It is
rumored also that Congressman Speer,
of the same State, will tuke his stand
by the side of Mr. Felton, and that
Hon. A. 11. Stephens will make an
other Democrat who will no longer
muster with the Bourbons. The late
elections are having an admirable effect
upon the Solid South.
THE Philadelphia Time* is given to
making good suggestions, and the latest
is that our Presidents should issue mes
sages about a foot long, with every
thing boiled down. It would have
turned the tables most effectually on
the parties who stole bis last message
if President Hayes had issued a new
one, in a concise form.
POTTKK county appears to Is: the
model county of tbe State. There were
so few criminal cases for trial at the late
term of court, and they so unimportant,
that it was thought not worth while to
put the county to the expense of bring
ing the jury together and holding court.
By consent of counsel all the cases
were continued until next court.
THE different liverymen in the coun
ties of Mercer, Venango, Lawrence,
Crawford, Butler arid Clarion will meet
in Franklin on the 17th of December,
1870, for the purpose of organizing a
"Liverymen's Union and Protective As
sociation." Thcobjeetof this association
is to form a protection against theft,
cruelty to animals, etc.
That if everyone would use Hop Bit
ters freely, there would be much less
sickness and misery in the world; and
people are fast finding this out, whole
families keeping well at a trifling cost
by its use. We advise all to try it.—
