PRESIDENT ARTHUR is on a pleasure
trip to the West, taking in the Yellow

they say be wants to be a candidate for
the next nomination for President.

therefore be taxed. This decision ap

when urged to join a Congregational
Church, requested to see the articles.
After several days deliberation he re
turned them, and agreed to become a

THE Democratic State Convention,
that met in Harrisburg last week, nom
inated the Hon. Joseph Powell, of
Bradford county, for State Treasurer
and Capt. Robert Taggart, of Warren
county for State Auditor General
The usual striDg of resolutions were
passed. The Convention was a rather
tame affair. All present signs indicate
the election of Niles and Livsey, the
Republican candidates on the State
ticket this year.
THE opinion of Ex-Chief Justice
Black in the perjury case against Esq.
John Smith, was published last week
as an advertisement. It would hardly
be fair, therefore, to publish any ad
verse communications upon the opinion
of the Judge. The matter is pretty
well understood now and as the case is
still pending before the courts it may
be better for all concerned to avoid any
further public discussion until a final
decision is made by the courts.
THE Republicans of this State are unit
ed this year and therefore victory is as
sured this fall. Tho prudent nomina
tions made from each branch of the
party, and the manner of their nomina
tion, have healed up the ranks. Mr.
Nilcs, the nominee for Auditor Gen
eral, was one of the leading Independ
ents in the State and always opposed
boss rule in the State. There is no dis
satisfaction in any quarter. A few
may want to keep up old feuds, think
ing it may benefit them, but such are
the very ones the people will set down
npon the first opportunity. Tbey are
not of much account so far, but will be
THE Governor has not as yet signed
the bill redisricting tbo State into
Judicial districts. It is generally be
lieved, however, that be will.
There has as yet been no agreement
between the two Houses as to the other
bills, the Congressional and Senatorial
bills being apparently as far from being
pas ed as ever. Recent advices indi
cate that an Assembly district bill may
be passed, as there is less difficulty
about that part of the work than the
others. The Senate generally refuses
to receive or consider any new offers or
propositions from the House, and does
not eeeiu iucliued to make any new
ones on its part. This policy may re
sult in making a mistake. The duty
of a legislator is to legislate, if legisla
tion is required. Actiug in a represen
tative capacity there cannot very prop
erly be any "lust offers," or saying by
any party "take this or get nothing."

HANNIBAL HAMLIN'S method of
writing while in the Senate is graphic
ally described. He spent four or five
hours every day in writing letters, and
it was his boast that he answered
every letter he received. It was pain
ful to see him write. He squeezed
his pen as though it contained money,
and his hand, arm and body were all
so unnaturally distorted that it seemed
a shame that he did not employ a sec
retary, but he worked away, hour by
hour, until he had got dono with his

Death of Harvey Osborn.
Mr. Harvey Osborn died suddenly
at his residence in Penn twp., this
county, on Friday morning last. He
had been ill lor some time previous
but had so far recovered as to be able
to come to this place only a short time
ago. The immediate cause of hisdeath
was paralysis of the heart, a stroke of
which took him away quite suddenly.
He was buried in the Middlesex Pres
byterian grave yard on Saturday last,
a very large concourse of neighbors
and citizens we are told attending the
funeral. The members of the Masonic
fraternity of this place, of which ho was
a member, also attended in a body.
Mr. Osborn was one of our most en
terprisiug and useful citizens, and was
esteemed for his many good and gener
ous qualities. He was one of the lead
ing farmers of the county and took an
active interest in all that pertained to
improvement in agriculture, having
one of the best -farms in the coulfty,
worked with all the modern machin
ery. His loss will be seriously felt.
He was aged about 03 years.
After Many Days.
MATAMOBAH, 0., August s.—The
details of the murder of a New York
citizen, after having been concealed for
nearly twenty years, have just come to
light here. In 1804 a syndicate of
New York capitalists sent a man here
to prospect for oil. The gentleman was
well-dressed, owned a fine team, dis
played costly jewelry, and was current
ly believed to have $50,000 with him.
After staying here a short time he
went to Archer's Fork, a short distance
above here on the river, and made his
home with a man named Ward After
prospecting for a time he suddenly dis
appeared, and Ward said be had ab
sconded. Ward was a poor man, work
ing a small farm, but be soon after came
to this place and erected a large hotel,
displaying every indication of having
suddenly acquired wealth. This ex
cited suspicion, and he was openly ac
cusedr>f murdering the capitalist, but
the charge could not be proved. Three
young men who talked mysteriously of
Ward's sudden wealth were sent West
by that individual, well supplied with
money, and after their departure the
tongues of the gossips gradually ceased
Three years ago Ward dropped dead
in his yard, and with his burial the
affair was forgotten. A few days ago,
however, it was revived in a thrilling
manner. James West, a shiftless
youth, who had acquired money about
the time of the prospector's disappear
ance, was taken seriously ill, and, be
lieving his end to be near, he sent fur
a minister and to him made a confession.
Ward had told him of the treasure to
be had by the murder, and the two,
with a butcher named Kirkbride, way
laid their victim and cut his throat
with a knife, robbing him of his jewel
ry and $30,000 in greenbacks. West
stated that a ring was allowed to re
main on one finger of the corpse, as
they were unable to remove it. The
skeleton, he said, would be found in a
certain well. The well has just been
searched, and in it, under a pile of
debris, was found the skeleton with a
gold ring on the little finger of one
band. The discovery has caused a
great sensation in this vicinity. The
murdered man's name has been for

WORK AT HARRISBURG.
Riding Roughshod Over the
IIARRISBURG, Aug. 2.—A most dis
graceful scene was enacted in the House
to-day. At the conclusion of a long
speech by Mr. Thompson, of Beaver, on
Amermon's resolution to refer the sub
ject of legislative apportionment to a
free committee of conference, the
Speaker, who had tired of the tedious
ness of the speech, called Hines, of
Luzerne, to the chair arid retired.
When Mr. Thompson sat down, at 12:35
o'clock, Mr. Gavitt, of Philadelphia,
sought the floor to reply, but the Chair
refused to recognize him, and proceeded
to put the question on the resolution
The question is on the adoption of
the resolution of the gentleman from
Lackawanna All in favor will say
aye, all opposed will say no; the ayes
have it and the resolution is adopted.
The next business in order is the con
sideration on first reading of bill No
10, apportioning the State into Con
gressional districts. The Clerk will
proceed to read the bill.
It must be remembered that all this
time Mr. Gavitt was repeating his call,
"Mr. Speaker! Mr. Speaker!" while
every moment new yoices were being
added to those loudly protesting against
the conduct of the chair. But Hines
paid no attention until the clerk was
nearly through the reading, which no
one could follow on account of the
noise, and then he turned his face to
ward the Republican side and with a
contemptuous expression of the face
shouted, "You can't bulldoze anybody
KEEPING UP THE DIN.
Still Gavitt's demand for a hearing
went on, amid the loud protests of the
Republicans and some Democrats, and
still Hines refused to recognize the call.
As soon as Clerk Maconkey's voice
ceased at the end of the reading Hines
began again : "The bill has been read.
Will the House agree to it on first
reading ? Those in favor will say aye,
those opposed will say no. It is agreed
to." And yet the cries "Mr. Speaker,"
and the protests were going on, when
a stentorian voice was heard to say,
"I move we adjourn." "It is moved
and seconded," said Hines, "that this
House do now adjourn. All in favor
say aye ; the ayes have it, and this
House stands adjourned."
As Hines came down from the
Speaker's chair he was surrounded by
a tumultuous, excited crowd of mem
bers of both parties. It is reported
that be applied some obscene epithets
to Mr. Gavitt and a fistic encounter
was only prevented by members crowd
ing between them.
CALAMITY WELLER, the lowa Green
backer, declared in a recent speech:
"I know as a fact that I can get nearer
to Heaven in fifteen minutes with
threo straight drinks of whisky than
any other way I know of. I know it
because I have tried it."
DEMOCRATS all over the Common
wealth are trembling with fear at the
rumor that some of their statesmen at
Harrisburg are preparing to sell the
party out on the apportionment ques
tion. This is strange, in view of the
confidence which the Democracy pro
fesses in its own integrity.—Philadel
THE Savannah Mews, the organ of
Democracy in Southern Georgia, com
plains that the Democratic party
has been controlled by a minority, so
that its ablest statesmen are proscribed
from being aspirants for the Presiden
cy. It can see no reason why the
South should not present a candidate
for the Presidency from that section.
THE New York Public, a sound
conservative financial journal, points
oat that the "Pennsylvania plan" of
distributing the Federal surplus, if
any, among the States is probably the
only way in which public education
can be raised to the safety level in
many States too poor or too stingy to
levy taxes adequate to the support of
GRANTING that Dorsey's charges
against Garfield are true; what do
they prove? That Garfield fell among
thieves—and by theives! If he made
pledges to these harpies, ho was justi
fied in breaking them; but the people
will require the word of some one who
is not a notorious thief and liar bofore
they will believe that the martyr Pres
ident made any such promises. The
whole thing simply uncovers the hein
ousness of Stalwartism.— Greenville
THE Philadelphia Times has this
important news about Mr. Tilden,
which looks authentic:
1. Mr. Tilden will gladly accept the
nomination for tho Presidency—lf he
can get it.
2. He will write one of the best po
litical epistles, to be read in conven
tion, declining the nomination—lf he
can't get it.
3. 110 will continue to maintain his
present proclaimed indifference about
Presidential nomination, and prove
that he doesn't care a button about it,
by—doing his level best to bunch a
Tilden majority in convention.
The foregoing three points cover tho
whole ground of Mr. Tildeu's attitude
on tho Presidency, and all other re
ports aro bogus. Copyright not ap

Just now may be seen tho tearing
down of one of the buildings in what
has long been known as "Dougal's
row," in this place. It is the ono in
which Mr. Dougal lived for many
years. It was peculiar in its construc
tion, having an angular chimney in tho
center, in which were four fire places
ending in one flue. L. Z. Mitchell,
Esq., the present owner, is removing
it for the purpose of erecting a fine
building of more modern stylo and
size. With a building on that corner
of the Diamond, such as Mr. Mitchell
will doubtless erect, and then a similar
one on the opposite corner, our Court
House will bo better supported and ap
pear to better advantage. While there
is sense of almost reverence connected
with the bouse in which Mr. Dougal
so long lived, yet the spirit of the
times and the progress of improvement
require tliatold things should give way
and make place for new ones. Our
citizens will therefore warmly approve
of the purpose of Mr. Mitchell in this
We know not how it may be in other
townships, but suppose it much like it
is in this, that we farmers have been
led off "on a switch,'* on the subject of
manures, taking up with patent fertiliz
ers and phosphates, when a much richer
article even than guano is provided for
us, in the limestone rock and the coal
to burn it, in abundance. It will "far
beat" any fertilizer we know of for
durability—lasting in the ground. We
limed some ground three years ago and
the limed ground, although worked
every year, is in as good condition to
day or better than the year it was
limed, this can't be said of phosphates.
We like to see farmers use fertilizers,
but experience proves that lime plenti
fully used, and give what vegetable
you can, far exceeds patent plasters,
and the ease with which it can be ob
tained, and the same outlay of cash, in
this township at least, ought to weigh
heavily in favor of the lime theory.
Let us burn and use more lime where
limestone is so abundant and where we
have such fields of coal.
We would be glad to have the Coun

Watters was more of a machinist smith

Comfort is never in a hurry. Pain and dis
tress are in hot husttf. It is to tho Jrienil in
need"—the friend who does something noyr—
that the old adage pays the compliment ot l>e

thu sullerer in suspense is the salient excellence
of BKNSON'S CAPCINK POKUS PLASTEIiS.
Tlu* plasters of other days--whether poroos or
otherwise- —said—-"Wftit until to-morrow . \\ o

moment." Hut pain unrelieved, like hope de
ferred makrth the heart sick. Benson s
plasters act on application. They permeate,
soothe, warm and heal, containing as they do,
chemical fuul medicinal of tho highest
efficiency. Their motto is SOW, and the «en
