Tun "Demeeracy have a deplorable
scarcity. of candidates for State officers
this year. The modesty of theie'Politi
clans is_ a most, remarkable feature in
these degenerate times.
Tun Legislature still prolongs its ses
sions. Of 'course the members wi,ll
extra pay. For this little additioiml
penditure we may tluink the Tactic's of a
;Curt Republican State Convention to
nominate candidates for Auditor and Sur
veyor General, met yesterday in Harris
burg. James ➢lcCandlish Esq., and R.
Id. Henderson, represent this county and
--Senatorial7District ..in_ the Convention.
The noininations have not readhed us at
the thin) we-go to press.
• TEIE Legislathre of Connection ins de
clared Marshall Jewell the Republican
candidate elected Governor of that State,'
and lie was on TueSday hist inaugurated.
The Democracy had perpetrated a num
ber of glaring frauds' to , ,Secure the elec
tion of their candidate, but they were
discovered and expdsed; and the conse
quence is, that.tho Republicans will now
enjoy ,the full benefit of their hardlearpod
victory. Among their, other contrivan
ces to iiefraud the.people of .their ChoiCo,
the - New Haven Democrats had stolen
ono inindred Republican votes out of ono
same number of Democratic tickets.
This was a very smart fraud, and came
very near succeeding. The Legislative
committee however made a canvass of the
ward, and discovered that one hundred
more persons had - voted for Jewell than
the ballots indicated. They accordingly
subpremed the voters, and proved
the Casting of a hundie more vote
'fur Jewell than the return showed.
This gave him a majority and he was de
clared elected instead of English. Thus
th boldest fraud ever perpetrateel
an election was discovered, and tho end
for which it was committed-'frustrated.
Mn. MANIC M. PoItEROY, the great
apostle of the red' hot Democracy, has
had some family-difficulties which have ,
finally resulted in his settling on his wife
220,000, absolutely, and some $OO per
annum in addition, and 'dissolving the
matrimonial relation In that case. We
see in one of the clailypams the following
editorial extract on The subject credited
to Brick's paper.
"This proceeding, we understand, was
mutually desired to legalize an 'amicable
negotiation about a separation that has
practialilly existed for many. years ; and
the aliinony is about equivalent to the
voluntary annuity that has hitherto been
granted, notwithstanding the disparag
ing rumors of neglect that have often
been circulated by those whose ignorance
of the fads was only equaled: by their
mischievous malignity toward a man
whose sins are not- akin to hypocrisy.
Circumstances of peculiar delicacy have
compelled Mr. I'D/nerdy to submit silently
to. imputations of dishonor; and, with
this finalaetion it Is :to --- be hoped, -- mlf
vituperation will cease."'"
By all means let vituperationceasb':
It certainly never should have begun
What the merits of this family fight
may be exactly, no one except the parties
knows, nor does any one, ,who has any
thing but his neighbors' business to at
tend to, care. Let Brick's troubles find
the oblivion now, to which he will be

ethics between himself and other people.
For nearly ten years, Mr. Pomeroy, has
been in , public notice, as a newspaper
writer, and during the first half of this
time, was quite a celebrity. Of all the
publications, which a pretty liberally
inclined community allow to be circu
lated, his was decidedly the worst. It
, fairly reeked slwith obscenity,' and no
opportunity was lost to blazon - forth - in
the most otrouSive form, a record of the
vices, real or imputed of the publio men
of the nation, and nothing was seized
upon with so much zest, or given forth
with so much detail, as the difficulties
that existed, or were supposed to exist
in the -domestic relations of people that
"didn't belong to Brick's party. •When
this comes home to the red hot editor, he,
with etu•prising assurance, asks that
" all vituperations cease," forgetful that
his own poisoned arrows have always
been aimed at those who were similarly
unfit innate. lle need . not fear a long
continued persecution, hut it might be
well fin• Min 'in the rehire to eliminate
from his' own journal, that peculiar
reachlug after scandal, 'which has given
him a 'note, iety as proffiless as it is
. W 1 think there aro_ the. materials in
the Democratic:party - Wilds county, to

are a good many prizes 'to' be won,-and

_ HANDSOII.II REBIDENCE.-16. Charles
H.-Hopinirn t - cashier of the, Frst Na= -
tional Bank, in this place, has recently
had the. large brick banking building, on
West High street, thoroughly renovated
and repainted. 'The painting was per
formed by Messrs, John Amy i& Sod,
while'the• graining on the doors, which
is of a handsome design, waS executed
by - Mr. Lingle, of Harrisb'Urg. The
building now presents a handsome ap- ,
pearance, contrasting favorably with the
residencdof Mr. Win. Piper adjoining.
Colonel .13owynaii, formerly a• citizen of
this place, but late of Philadelphia, hay. ,
ing returned to our town now 'occupies
the property of Mr. Hepburn.
Many of our citizens have painters en
gaged in.brushing tip their dwellings,
thus giving evidence of good taste, and
a desire-to-have-their residences present
a fine appearance.
INFORMATION TO BoLrenna.- , -The
Soldiers entitled to a quarter section of
the Public lands under the acts of Con
gress, and desirous of locating it .and
trying their fortunes in the West the
experiences of a pioneer may be of . ad
vantage. A. discharged soldier who has
settled iu Kausaa writes to a Western
paper some details of his experience,
which will' be of interest to those of
limited means who wish to engage in
farming where land is cheap. He located
a homestead, of 150 acres in Dickinson
county, within fourteen irides of the
Kansas Pacific railroad:L-as good laud,
he says, as can be found in Kansas or in
Kentucky. His homestead cost him
$18.50; he has to live on it five years,
and at the expiration of- that period, if
he can prove he has not been absent
from it more than six months at ono
time, he .can get a patent for, it from
Government, and it is then his to dis
pose of as he - thinks pr6er. The only
advantage the - soldier has ever the citi
zen in this matter is, that he naii take
under th'e Homestead law 160 acres of
land within twenty miles of a railroad to
which land grants have been made,
while the citizen can take only 80 acres.
But outside of railroad limits there is 'no
such distinction. Water is found there
by digging at an average depth of forty
foot. Timber is scarce and lumber ex.
pensive. 2Horses are - high, but Indian
ponies can lie bought at from . $3O to $OO
each. They aro good for herding,or for
common light service. Texas cattle can
bo bought, one year old, at $5 to $0 ; two
years old, $lO to $l2 ; three years old,
$l5 to $2O. They aro generally very
poor when they arrive in the State, but
prhirie grass is plenty, and.they soon
pi:eve in condition ; purchasers often
'double their-money on them in a single
year. Railroad lauds aro Bolling Cron
$3 to $7 per acre.
ASSAULT WITIIINTENT TO KILL.-011
last Saturday night, 34. W. 11. 11.
Walker, familiarly known by the sobri
quet. of "Dad," proprietor of the saloon
in the basement of Rheern'eHall,..whilo
on his way home, was murderously as
saulted'by a young man well-known in
this community, as John alias "Chief"
, From all the particulars ob
tained,--lhe facts of the tragic affair are
about as follows :
John Ruggles, the prisoner in question,
up to the time of his arrest was iu the
employ of Allison & Son, fish And pro
duce dealers. On Saturday evening
Ruggles had been-imbilSin,g rather freely,
and at an early hour was ejected from a
saloon for the highly insulting manner
in which hetas then concluding himself.
About 11 o'clock he made-his appear
ance in the saloon in Rheem's Hall, and
demanded something to drink, but was
refused, informing him at the same time
that, as the hour for closing had arrived,
he would greatly- oblige thorn by leaving ;
this, of course; 4e/ refused to do, when
" Dad" politely assisted him to the head
of the stairs. "31r. Walker, Wen returned
to the saloon, finished up his business,
turned off the gas, and took his depart-.
uro for home, accompanied by Lou J.
Ruggles, evidently had treacherous
and murderous designs, no doubt laying
in wait for "Dad," from the fact that
as soon as Walker started, lmfpllowed
him tqosely, and when near firamer's
corner, on the end of the avenue "went
for" - him, said darinit - the' brief struggle
inflicted serious wounds with a sharp
. to be a knife.
Ruggles,' a r ; soon as the actinic' had ended
started mff on a swift run.,
Walker 'finding,' that lie lad been

BUTTER, flavored very strongly With
grass, has made its appearance in. mar
ket, "Is it grass butter?" is timpre
_railing question during_, market hours.
Primo article of butter sells at 20 and 30
cents per pound. As the prospects fOr
pasture are' very good, there will, no
doubt, be a greater decline in price/ Now
is the time to pack away butter for Fall
and Winter , use, as it generally corn_
watids very high prices at those seasons of
the-year. Eggs sell at 14 and 16 cents

MEssui Enrrons.—As there is,a false
report circulated in this borough, with a
view of injuring my reputation, I desire
to refute the same through the _eolumns
of your paper. This repant, sayS„that•V
should have been seen.hiThoinpany With'
improper persons. I have made every
effort tolascertain,its author, but thus
far without Success. It is a slander of
the vilest character. I have been fre
quently annoyed by unpleasant accusa
tions, while calling at different residences,
Mad haVe determined to defend myself
through the columns of Tun iIEnAED. •
I defy the author of .this vile And,con

this. It is misfortune enough, I think,
to lose an arm, and to be loft alone in
the world, without the bane of a dis
reputable charade'''. I shall produce for
your perusal, my pension certificate ; a
letter of tecommendation, signed. by 1G

WILLIAM H.. hforsE,
Agent of the .
MEssmi. Errors.—ln your issue of
the eleventh instant, I read a statement
purporting to lie the facts in relation to
the illness and death: of Miss Alice C.
Lent. Will you please do me the justice
to publish the following :
I beg leave, most respectfully, to cor
rect some mistakes in th at 'statement,
and set forth the fire ts in the case, some
of which were related to me by herself,
her mother; and the family, and others
kiiowe to myself. On Sabbath, AM:il 30,
I was called , ih to See Miss Lea, and
found her afilicted-With what ultimately
Proved to be Thztinzatic 7'et anus, c!i7
common parlance, lock- jaw, almost as
rigid as a post frOm iierhcad to her feet,
with involuntary movement of her arms
as in Chorea, , or St Titus' Dance. She
said she had no palm!" hilt don't, like
this jerking in ray back." To the .in
quiry, " did you get hurt in any part of
your person ?'' she answered "
which was at that time confirmed by her
mother and the family. On Monday,
May 1, I again visited her, and, found
her on the Sabbath. I again pressed,
the , above inquiry ; her mother replied
that two weeks ago a splinter enured
the sole of her foot at the junction of the
great toe with the ono adjoining., 11
splinter three inches long was extracted
by her mother ; I then examined the
foot and found the wound healed over,
but no pain, redness, swelling or tender- .
nem ou pressure. Sonia hours after I
was informed that the foot contracted
inward, and forced the end of a splinter
ono and five-slxfeentlis of an inch in
length and one-sixteenth of an inch in
diameter, through the skin over the
wound. On Tuesday, May 2, she died..
a week after tho Splinter entered
the foot, She complained of phin in it to
which dressings were' applied by the
family, with the result as above stated.
THE HERALn's statements implies that
I was " called in" at'that time. This is
•a mistake, I know - nothing of the case
for fully ono week after this occurrence.
I am sorry I warns , not called in at. that
time. "Dr Stewart was called 4 but,
from the persistent and painful contrac
tions to which she was subjeCted, it . 00n
became apparent that lock-jaw would,
ultimately, take place." This plainly
implies that I had charge of the case
some tithe beforeiidid take place. This
is a inistako.-._ denuilaMed
ness of her jaws on Friday. On Satur
day and that welt, the - rigidity was' In
tense, and on Sabbath, when I first saw
her.;, the_ disease-was-manifest , gioat
force and all Its terror. " For 48 liourP
