doors. Fuel and Provisions 'are dear, and
there are those among us that have not the
means to buy. There are the families of our
brave soldiers, many of whom will need as
sistance without being regarded as subjects
of charity. There are whole families whom
misfortune has overtaken, and who, in the
-struggle of life, have been driven to the wall.
'These should receive assissistatice from those
who have a competence.
The Wellsville Press contains several
rich and "original" illustrations of the man
•"Marsh Champ," *ho some weeks since
headed the invasion from Mcliean county.
From the appearance of one of the "pictures"
it would seem that he ,has not received his
regular rations of Democratic doctrine lately.
By-the-way, we have frequently been asked
by men from different parts of the county,
whether this man Champlain said in his
speech here that if McClellan was elected
. "Democratic prices would take the place of
the present high prices, and whiskey could be
bought for 17 cents per gallon !" \4 e! can
assure all who have any doubt about it that
it is true. We heard him say it—and was
not very much surprised, as people ,always I
speak of that which "runs in their head."
}fig?,, At the last Election there were two
'votes cast in Sweden toWnship by a couple,
'ho from the formation of that matt of their
body generally supposed to carry the brains,
ate not responsible for thetracts. Of course
they voted for the illustricias 'gunboat gen
eral.'" Ono of these, when asked with what
he teas assessed, replied, "with C—Tv's
cow," but when the taxes on C—:---NV's cow
were to be paid, the "cow" had disappeared
and the texes'wbre this week presented to the
Commissioners for abatement. We . were
present at the time anq are happy rtb an
nounce that in the opinion of the Commis
sioners, the "cow' ) or her friends' will have to
"god-mother" the taxes. Take, this matter,
hold it up, and let the light shine upon it so
that it can be seen in all its bearings, and it
presentsa significant picture of the necessi

its members, have "exhibited their wax fig

Were you ever in Coudersport?. Here is a
description of the place. It is a village con
taining two hundred souls (i. e., if every hu
man biped has a soul), - and is situated be
tween a clump of alder bushes, and a noted
frog-pond, But to my' story. -
in times of old, there resided in said vil
lage a hotel-keeper, who, for convenience,
we will call Sam Mills. Now Ham was an
excellent landlord,. Many miles l have trav
elers gone out of their way to stop with Sam.
His only failing was his love of city style.—
Having returne from the city, his little ons
horse tavern was dull. He was on the point
of closing, when, horror of horrors, several
'city gents drove up to the door. Having no
!waiters, Sam was nonplussed. There hap

In this dire necessity, applied, telling him, if
he would act on this occasion, his whiskey

readily consented; and dressed, in one of
Sam's 'caste off suits, he presented himself at
the dinnen-Lable. The guests were -seated,
when up steps Pus with :
"What will .you have 'gents? We have
