Saturday evening in Lawrenceville, atßenn's
took place the opening meeting of the
campaign for this section of Tioga county:
It was one of the most earnest and enthusiastic
of gatherings. The meeting was called to
order, and it was announced that the object
of the gathering was the formation ofa Grant
and Wilson club. James Stewart being
called to the chair the following officers
were elected:
J. H. Mather; Preiident; - F. Smith, J.
C. Demon, Henry Colgrove, J. A. Rodgers,
Vice Presidents; Wm. Pollock, Secretary .
C. S. Mather, Corresponding Secretary; D.
P. Ferrenbaugh, Treasurer; J. W. Stew
art, H. T. Caton, C. S. Mather, Charles
Duel, Joseph Guiles, Executive Committee.
The =seer-roll was then'signedby.nearly
one hundred voters, pledging ;themselves to
support Grant - and Wilson at the aiming
election. Among-the number, were Aeveral
influel Democrats. Besides these a great
many m re say they prefer Grant and
son to Horace Greeley, and Ithink - foi every
Republican in this town and born that may
be induced to vote for Greeley and Brown
we can count on at least three recruits from
the Democratic ranks.
On Saturday afternoon, August third, we
intend to raise a Gfant and Wilson Pole,
when some able speakers willbepresent, and
a general good time may be expected. •
-MINING IN ell A TITASI. —Mr. Win. Sp-GA(I
ing, of Chatham, has for some time past given
his attention to mining in the mountain near
his residence, and with a good deal of en
couragement. Ile has sent specimens of the
ore to Nc4 York to a practical assayer, and
received a certificate as follows: Gold per
ton, $10.73; silver per ton $3.35. No doubt,
there is much urnieveloped mineral wealth
in the mountain where this ore exists, but
whether it couldi be procured in paying
quantities is yet tube determined. We un
derstand, however, that Mr. S. will soon make
further explorations as be feels confident that
he will yet find a fortune in the "hidden
treattre." Success to the undertaking
TERRIBLE ACCIDEN T.—An accident ivhich
can hardly fail to be fatal in its results, oe
en rred on Friday afternoon, J ulyl2th, at the
railroad crossing in the borough of Canton,
A freight train from the south had passed on
to the switch, and divided so - that a portion
of the train was on the south side of the
crossing, while the other portion ran up and
.-topped above the crossing. At this junc
ture Arr. Frederick Williams and son at
tempted to drive across the track, when the •
Niagara Express going south and running
very rapidly, struck the wagon, crushing it
into a diarpless mas , of debris, and throw

A WORK WORTII HAVING.—In that wittiest
of modern works, the Autocrat ofthe Break
faq Table, Dr. Holmes tells of a certain
heavy gentleman who one day electrified
the whole table by the sudden unwonted
brilliancy of his talk and the extent and ac
curacy of hi= learning upon the most diverse
topics. Before that day his most partial
friends had regarded him as a man of :Ong
gist' *intellect and shallow knowledge,( and,
hero he suddenly blossomed forth as voluble
and as learned as Macaulay and as incisive
mu Sydney Smith. What could account for
it? In reflecting upon this problem, thi:
Autocrat remarked that the gentleman's•
themes all began .with A. He discoursed
upon Abbottsford, Abelard and Abyssinia,
upon the Achasan League and acids, upon
acro.-tio and Adam, upon neti»ism aiad
I sop, upon the Appian - Way and the Ara
bian,Night:, upon John Andre and Araguay,
and there he halted. Nothing could induce
him to talk of Eugene Aram or ()larches, and
he was rather reticent and shaky on the
subject of Benedict Arnold. A _happy
thought 611Mhed through the Antocrat's
brain, and the wonder was, solved. The
first volume of the New American Cyele
piedia load just been is-ued, and this dull
gentleman had read it through- front cover
to cc.' Or ; and here he was a living mcaumient
of lrau uatag—frotia A to`Araguay.
Whether the gentleman has continued to
read the other volumes of that work as they
have appeared we t know; but if he has,
be is by this time either dead from mental
dyspepsia or he is the most learned Theban
of them all. For since that time,' the work
has been eompleted, and the searcher for
knowledge may now roam from A to Izzard
at hi , own ..meet. will. It is a magnificent
monument alike to Amyl iean scholarship
and American enterprise. In preparing its
text very many of the ablest pens of the
coutitu have been• employed; it is thor
oughly e dit e d ; and as t'or its mechanical

tor of the Geneva Gazette, delivered before
the Editors' and Publishers' Association• of
the State of New York, af Watertown, June
'25. 1872, On subject of Pate n t o u t s id rs
speaker truthfully said :
- What "a lame and important conelusimi - '
it i-. my friends, with so many country, pub
lishers, to resort to O - era/viz/out:fide proces 5
of is,,ning their weekly journal. I never
pick up one of these sheets without reflecting
that the conductor has mistaken his calling
—that he is lacking in some one or all the
element= of industry , judgment, or brains,
so essential for an editor, and is self-conscions
of his incompetency, or he would not result
to this "stale, flat and unprofitable method
o serving his patrons. A fresh, live, read
lc newspaper, cannot be produced in this
Manner. It is not wisely adapted to either
the religious or secular, the political or neu
tral journal. It-oftthnes emirs that every
column, every square of available „space
demanded for fully chronicling general
local events of importance to your readers,
but which are wholly ignored by roar "Pat
ent outside" editor. The demand; of adver
' tiseis may at times trespass largely on
your reading columns. Then , the discrimi
nating editor will first •eneroach upon the
• miscellaneous department. But your pat
ent outsider has but one alternative under,
such a pressure, and that bears directly
upon the most vital part of his' paper, the
instele—it must often prove to his own morti
fication, and to the great dissatisfaction of
it diseerning patrons. The "Chk
cngo tire," is said, caused a, large nuMber
of tetaporary suspensions of 'weekly papers
throughout the West, to the infinite amaze

Our readers will perhaps remember that
we published some time since a "Reminis
cence of Liberty" in which the origin and
early history of the _ Block House was
eSsedly set forth' by a corresPondenl; - The
story was published entirely on the faith of
our correspondent, we knowing nothing of
its accuracy. A writer in the Williamsport
Gazette and Bulletin thinks-our correspon
dea was mistaken! and undertakes to set
hint right in the letter which We copy belOW:
We do not know who this writer is, but
the Williamsport editor vouches for him as
t'ontl who knows whereof he !Arms." He
certainly appears to speak by the curd. And
Pet he makes some -singular mistakes. It
was not Sir William Poultney, but Sir Wil
liam I'ulteney, who purchased the lands
known to this day as "the Pulteney Estate."
That estate comprised almost the whole of
Steuben county, a largo part of Allegany
(ritt „A/legit' fiy) and part of Livingston coun

tendency of the age for fiction and literary
poison. fearcd-some, at least, of those
bright-eyed children that attend the eight
Sunday schools of the Block House settle
ment might addpt the stutement[of the„Lib
erty,correTondent for histOrie facts, So we
make a condensed and brief statement of the
eireitlil stances.
In the month of August, the govern : .
ment of the ConimonwealtWof Pennsylvania:
sent, out commissioners to treat with the
several Indian tribes concerned, for the pur- .
ehtv.e of all the lands' in the Commonwealth
net previously purchased by the Provincial
government, via: 'Beginning at -the line di
viding Pennsylvabia and New York, - then
down the N Branch of the Susquehanna
to the mouth of the Awandae, nowlowanda;
their up the came, and.doWu „the ,Laceinick,
now-Lycoming, to thr;'l Tctt Brant% 'of the
Surquehanna ; then up the same to its upper
forks, now "Cherry 'free,; " thence by a line
totittanning,. a tow on, the , Allegheny";
then dowicthe :;amo and Ohio ,river to the
western' boundary of Pennsylvania, com
pri,ing the north western part of the State.
The commissioners met the representatives
of the several northern tribes concerned—the
Cayugas, Oneidas, Senecas, a al.; at Fort
Stanwix, the present site of Boine, N. Y.,
and subsequently the Shawnees, dingoes,
et all., at Fort Mclntosh, on the Ohio, the
preint bite of the town of Beaver. This
treaty was confirmed by the Oomrrionwealth,
nth :January, 1786, and at the same session of
Ar , sembly, laws were inissed 'regulating the,
bilke and surveys of the lands thus acquired.
The; Surveyor General divided all the ter
ritory acquired by this treaty lying east of
the Allegheny rim' and Cenewangti preek,
tthe outlet of (;hatatiqua lake), into eighteen
survey districts, from the State line to the
south boundary of the purchase. The line
dividing the litit and 18th survey districts_ .j
a, rim and-marked early,.i the year .1785,,
ero.(seil the first ferlt of Pine' k.,"reek • at - thb
present loetith,m of the bridge on the public
road, it boo t six perehes,east or the site of the
Rick llote.e. As surveys commenced in
ntilinan ~f the yeal —in the liith district
- pack loirse path, then called Bridle
road was opened from the small improve
ment ot James Kyle and Win. Weyley,
which %vas the uppermost settlement on Ly
coining (leek, about two and a half miles
below know Trout Run StatiOn); the
road passed up to Trout Bun, then up the
saute about six miles to the base of the moun
tain and upper forks, then up the West
Branch by easy grade, and down the pack
liorze branch to the first fork of Pine creek.
This circumstance gave the name "Pack
Horse Braneli.' ,This road , was :afterwards
continued to the .Tioga, ;at Peters tCamp,
uu the opposite side ofthe river, a short dis
tance above Blossburg. Surveys were made
in the Block House alley from 1785 to 1788.
Having now passed through with the main
loathes of the original or opening history of
the Block House country, we will now pro
ceed to the historie.eircumaanee that origi
nated the name.
Ahout the year 1790 Sir William Poultney
purchased 4.1' the State of New York a large
aniount of hinds, comprising . the northwest
part of Steuben , and tlteJeast tier.Atotvpships
of Allegheny eobtify and ticihelelas
a very inailifeSt desire to . einigrate 'and settle
those lands by, very any from Central
Pennsylvania, it became necesary to have
an over-land communication to the waters
of the Cheinung ; consequently in the latter
part of I'm, or early part,of litr2, Col. Thom
as Williainsion, who represented Sir William
Poultney, and perhaps Sir George Homly.,
'comnienced the construction of such roan
up the Lycoining Creek, then up Troutßun ;
he first commenced the work wall a body of,
Germans, but very soon Jotted it -necessary'
to employ Americans. A traditionary story
is related concerning the Germans, that Will
delineate their ideas of road making. It is
said when they came in contact with the
mountain, !' about . . tie` e:rity • perche r s, t iibblre.
Trout Run Station, they worked 'on at the
same grade until it was apparent, if they
persisted,.a tunnel would be necessary ; here,
they were brought to a stand by the return
of the foreman. . However this
,may be, a
large pit or excavation is plainly apparent at.
this time. The road was continued nyer
