To our Readers.
Since wc assumed control of this paper, wc have
met with so many obstacles, so many disappoint
ments, that we have been unable to issue our paper
regularly. At first we were disappointed in receiv
ing paper, and when we had made arrangements in
regard to that, two of our hands kit us at a time
when we most needed them, and when we had great
difficulty in getting others. We were thus prevented
from issuing a paper last week. But we are fairly
darted again, and if attention, and labor, and punctu
ality can atone for our past disappointments they
fhall be amply atoned for.
Our subscribers shall lose nothing by the irregular
ity spoken of. Every one of them shall have fifty-two
numbers for their money.
We have made such arrangements as will enable
us to send the papers to Loretto, Ashland Furnace.
Chess Springs, Three Roads and Fallen Timber, and
other Northern Po:-t Offices, on Friday uiorniiiy here
after, and our subscribers' there shall 1.0 ki'gvr be
Profession vs. Practice.
Some one, we know not and care not who. has said
that '"if you make a plcbian a king, he will become a
tyrant, : and he might, with all propriety, have ad
ded : If you make a fop a legislator, he will becom-i a
fool. This conviction has been forced upon our mind
by the course pur-u -d by certain gentlemen in West
moreland county, who take especial delight in talk
ing about wasteful cxpeudirutes of the public mon
ey on the mountains,'' and the want of economy in
the S.tato Administration." Several of the-e gentle
men have considerable notoriety from the fact that
they have recently figured in a Comity meeting, held
in Green-burg, as the assailants ot the public im
provements, and the opponents of our present excel
lent State Administration.
Of course they have a right to pursue this course,
or any other they may see proper, p diticaliy . Xo one
w ill object. But they should be exceedingly careful,
when talking about a want of economy in the man
agement of public affairs, that they are not :: tarred
with the same stick.'' By a reterenee to the Jour
nals cf the last House ot Representatives, it will be
seen that Dr. Eimkluw and Win. A. Cook, both voted
for a bill to relieve the Pennsylvania Rail Road Com
pany from the State Tax on Tonage passim; over
that Road ; which biil. had it become a law, would
have taken from die State Treasury ninety th-JUsand
dollars aunuaily. The votes of these gentlemen will
be found on pages (,7'J and 701 of that Journal.
With what grace can gentlemen, who will thus
vote to diminish the State revenue ?'X'.o;nj por an
lium, talk alout a 41 w ant of economy"' in any Ad
ministration? With what consistency can tiiey
prcach about extravagance any branch of the pub
lic improvements, when they are attempting to plun
der the State for the purpose of enriching an over
grown corporation ? Men who can thushypocri ieal
ly attempt to deceive their constituency, are unfit to
be the representatives of any partv, much less of the
Democratic party, arid the honest yeomanry of Old
Westmoreland sh..i:M rcpi:&.c the aspirant w ho

The Executive Committee cf the Cimematigh
Teachers' Association, has issued a call to the Teach
ers of Cumbria, V.'es'.muiel.u.d and Indiana counties,
icquritlng them to attend a Teacher' Institute, to be
holdeii at Xtw Ahxut.diia, beginning ,a Monde v
Oct 'M and clutirg, Monday, Oct. luh. Male and
female teachers, of every grade, are invited to attend.
Able and efficient Instructors and Lecturers have been
engaged. The Committee re.yt.-st of the various
School Boards that they permit the Teaches s 1.1 their
employ to attend without loss of time or pay.
AVc approve of this project, mid sincerely that
the School Eoord of klbeiisburg will permit cverv
teacher in th,.lr employ to attend on the terms propo
sed. Xo portion of a community deserve more kind
l.es ard attention than those who traiu the vouug
idea, and in the same ratio that advantages are 'given
them for the attainment of knowledge and experience,
are the recipients or Common Sci.ol education beue
iilted. Again we say, let every School Board in Cam
brut county enable their teachcis to attcud xhi Institute.
The proceedings of the Democratic Senatorial Con
ference w ill be found in to-days' paper. By those pro
ceedings it will be observed that Jons Cmsswiii,
Esq., is the Democratic nominee. Mr. Cr.Esswtti. is
well known in this community. As a Democrat and
as a man he is deservedly popular, lleady'at all tin:es
to devote his time, his talents, and Lis n;eans for the
success of the Democratic cause, and unyielding in his
attachments to the regular nominees of the party, he
lias been a recognized leader in the ranks in Bhitr Coun
ty for years, and ifany man deserves well of Ida polit
ical frieuds it is he.
In this result, however, we must confess we are dis
appointed. We coi.fidently expected to raise the name
of Cvltvs X.. Piinsni.vi;, Esip, as our candidate. The
unanimity v. ith which he was named as the choice of
Cambria County, and the favorable manner in which
he was spoken of by the papers hi other Counties in
the District, excited our hopes: and wc, together with
others who were attached to him on account of his
political ImtK-rty and gentlemanly propriety, looked
forward with confidence to the time when we could
support him for this high office. But these hopes
were not, at this time, to be realized; and while the
man of our choice was defeated, we have still cause
for congratulation in the fact that our Conferees slack
to him to the last, and only gave him up when the no
mination had been made. Mr. rmtsuixo can weTr;
feet proud of the devotion of his own County.
Tor Mr. Cbessweii. we shall go to work ardently,
heartily, sincerely, feeling assured that our exeitions
could not be given to a better man. Cambria will
do her duty in the coming conte..-t, and the shout of
victory which will echo from the Alk-glumies on the
secend Tuesday of October next, will thrill the heart
of ( very Democrat in Pennsylvania.
The Democratic Convention of Allegheny County,
convened on the 7th inst., and placed in nomination
lion. P. C. Shannon, forjudge of the Supreme Court;
Jonas R. McCli.ntock, for Senator; R. Ridiilk Rob
erts, Esq., for District Attorney, ami an entire ticket
composed of men equally as Worthy ar.d competent
as those above named.
Ol the merits of Messrs. fmssox, McClistoch.
and RoisKKTs. it is unnecessary lor us to speak. Of
such a reputation as theirs any man might well be
proud, and their popularity cannot be doubted. Should
they be elected, their official career would reflect hon
or upon their Count-.
World's Temperance Convention.
This body, which has been in session in New York
for some time, broke up in a row recently. The
cause of the disturbance was that Some of the male
bipeds objected to the female reformers" speaking.
The Rev. Miss Antonette Brown was the one most
objected to. When she arose to speak, cries and his
ses greeted her from ail parts of the house, but she
stood, calm and ooilectcd as a statue, gazing at the
excited multitude. Miss Lucy Stone backed her up,
and v. bile the ferment was at the highest the Rev.
Miss remarked, We'll take our time, Miss Lucy.'"
Miss Lucy replied, -It will never do to give it up so.
Mis Brown." But. notwithstanding the aptness o!
the quotations', thev had to give it up so."

Piiissian Policy Its Leading Spirit.
Among the agencies that contribute to govern
the present policy of Russia, and occasion the e x
isting complication in Europe, there is one which
is necessarily powerful and pinmire-nt, but eloes
not seem to be taken into account by the public
ists who have sought to illuminate theobscuiitic-s
