young girl, daughter of a eteaMbi. it pilot, resi
ding in Newport, opposite -CitteAttiati, left her
hots without permission of h& • parents, and
without giving them any knevilt;tle of her des
tination,'or the object she •hat'bi view. She
wait only fourteen years of age, 'tut had been
well educated and was especieltrace.omplished
as a piano player. She had bath gone three or
four weeks before any inforrnaa.s . was received
by her anxious friends, and tht Y her wherea
bouts were discovered accident) y by an old
friend of her father, who met h 2 on one of the
streets of this ,city, and asked het; what she was
doing here. She was cunning enough not to
tell him that she had eloped fwm her parents,
bit innocently remarked that she was on a visit
,to a friend here. The fact that'lle was absent

First street, where she had been lodging under
the assumed name of Blanco7 Taylor. She
appeared very much mortified a' her discovery,

ABRAHAM LINCOLN—Masa: 4, 1865.
Our patron have generally discovered that
Trisc AOLTALTON has, for three weeks past, ap
pekred in a form somewhat enlarged and im
proved. The enlargement makes an additioti
of two columns in the printed surface. This
was intended to . be preliminary to a greater
improvement at no distant time. We neglect
ed to mention the change because of the press
of outside matters at that time, and since.
" We now take pride and pleasure in announ
oing, that we have disposed of a one-half in
terest in TRE AGITATOR to, MR. P. C. VAN
GELDER, late of the West Branch Bulletin, who
will from the let of January next be associa
ted with us in the publication of this paper.
Mr. VanGelder brings with him a thorough'
proeticel knowledge of the business in all its
branches ; and as a Job Printer he has few
equals, and no superiors in - the country. He
is a man of great energy and industry, and
enjoys ar enviable reputation for integrity.
With this arrangement agreed upon, we now
propose, - bn or about the Ist day of January
next, to dress Tax AGITAT - OR in new and bean-
tiful type, enlarge it to a seven•column paper,
and advance the subscription price to $2 per
year.,. We have stood alohe, almost, for three
years, in publishing the paper at $1,50. The
white paper, on which we print costs as much
now as _at any time during the last two years,
having advanced fifty per cent. within a month.
We have now the largest circulation, cave one,
in Northern Pennsylvania; and through this
we command one•tbird more advertising than
can be accommodated within present limits.
We believe that our circhlation can be carried
up to 2,500 with moderate effort ; and with an
energetic and experienced partner, lightning
presses, new material, and the generous sup
port of .the people of Tioga county; which has
never failed us in the past, we expect the
experiment of enlargement and new material
to pay, though made in the face of advancing
prices for everything pertaining to the busi
ness. By this association with Mr. VanGelder
we are to have ample time to edit the paper as
it ought to be, yet has never been edited, giv
ing comprehensive summaries of Congressional
and legislative proceedings, foreign, domestic,
and local news.
The rates of adiertisinx suivaruma
proportionably to the increased length of col
umn, after Jan. 1, 1866.
In view of the enlargement, no subscriptions
extending beyond the first of January will be
taken at less than $2 per year, after this date.
ask our patrons to remember, that the
co my paper is always regarded as the expo
nent of the business energy and material prog
ress of the county, by outsiders.
WAGER AND BTEAL/NO
We Lust take issue with the West Branch
Bulletin, which objects to some remarks we
made upon the subject of the wages of public
men. We said that, for one, we could not en
dorse the movement to reduce the wages of
public servants, holding that good pay is a pre
ventive of stealing. The case in controversy
is that of the pay of our State Legislators.
The Bulletin asserts that the- greatest cor
raption - existe where pay 'is highest, and cites,
the States of Vermont and Rhode Island, where
legislators are paid $2 and $l, respectively,
per day. It says that corruption is there un
known, or nearly so.
But this, on examinaton, will prove unequal
to the demonstration of its assertion. For it
is the fact of the moving of great enterprises
which leads to bribery and corruption of leg
islators. In neither of the States named ere
there gigantic corporations with very large and
dull axes to grind, and therefore there is no
market for purchasable men. In' Pennsylva
nia and New York, whose legislatures are no
torious for stealing, there are several monstrous
corporations calling for legislation every win
ter ; and these corporations are competitors in
in the strife for exclusive privileges. The pre
ferment of each depends upon thit numbers
of voters it can command ; and, we regret to
say, the number of votes commanded depends
upon the size of the corruption fund furnished
Where:there are no great public corporations
there is no " ring," for : the reason that there
is nothing for a " ring" to subsist on. The
"ring" in Harrisburg' is not the creature of
the pay of the legislature; our friend will not
' assert that flatly, we are sure. It is the crea-1
tare of great corporations, competing for in
fluence in the legislature. These corporations
know that some men can be bought, and they
buy them. The British parliament is not paid
at all ; yet there is not another legislative body
in existence which bears so bad a reputation
for corruption. The strife for places in the
New England legislatures is as great as it is
here, as far as our observations goes. We know
something about it—having been reared up to
manhood there. And so far as we know, they
send no better Men to the legislature there than
here. Nor do we admit that the members
there are " selected by fellow citizens for their
ability and integrity" in any exceptional sense.
The truth is, the people vote for the man who
=lkes the most of what he possesses there, and
here. Nor do we admit that men do not seek
for Aso when the pay is Jose. A* for
it always—some men, that is ; and a east in

The Trusteeiof tfid Acadeaiy aris'lnheld gratfted in
being able to announce the unexpected prosperity of
the Institution, under the vigorous administration of
its present efficient Board of Instruction. Its tank and
patronage are now very far in advance of what the
School has enjoyed for many years.
With entire confidence it can now be recommended
as an excellent place for obtaining sound mental die
cipline, and a thorough preparation for College, or
the duties of real life.
The methods of instruction a.. those used by all
ltadd. elm aorpront
tests of experience in the best Academies and Colle
ges of the land.
The great aim of ttai Faculty is to make thinking,
self-helpful, self-retiaat achoinrc They do not by
over much " showing" and " helping". render their
pupils Manta/ Cripples for life; nor by 'the "pouring
in process" give them en incurable intellectual dys
Miss Fannie S. Nash, A 8., the new member of
the Faculty, is a graduate of Williamsport Dickinson
Seminary, and comes to us very highly recommended
by Prat. Mitchell and Prof. Ferree of that celebra
ted Institution. Other instructors also add their tes
timonials to her worth, ability, and success as a Tea
cher. She is peculiarly fitted to impart superior in
struction in all branches of Mathematics.
Miss Wood, the new Teacher of Music is from
Massachusetts, is highly recommended as a Teacher
of Vocal as well as Instrumental Music, anti will
prove, no- doubt, a valuable acquisition to the School.
The Discipline is mild, when mildness will secure
ebp.rfnl obedience and earnest study, but firm and
unyielding when firmness seems to be necessary.
Reny scholar is expeeted to do his duty. The Tea
chers, not the students, govern the sp - thool.
A Merit Roll, showing the standing of every stu
dent in Scholarship, Deportment, kc., is accurately
kept, and publicly read at the close of each term.
Parents can. examine this at any time, and stecertain
what progress their children are making. And School
Directors may know how to find teachersworthy of
A Roll of Honor, consisting of the 25 students
wbese names stand highest on the Merit Roll, is
formed and publicly read at the close of each term,
and also published in the Agitator.
Numerous and valuable Prizes are offered for Schol
arship, Composition, .tc. Five were competed for
during the Fall Term. = Still more will be awarded at
the close of Winter Term. These exert -a powerful
and beneficial influence upon a large majority of the
students, inciting them to hard study and willing
obedience. Among these, perfect recitations are the
rule—failures very rare exceptions.
The Junior Department shall receive more atten
tion than heretofore. Whatever may occur, the Jun
iors shall never be neglected. The Preceptress will
devote her time exclusively to their instruction.
The Cominon Branches are never slighted but are
considered of vast importance, not only for actual
ass, but as the foundation of all true scholarship.
Spelling and Reading will be required of every
student as a regular exercise.
Brownell's Natural Spelling Teacher—a new meth
od—will be used by all the advanced pupils. The
others spell orally.
English Grammar, often so inexcusably neglected
and so badly taught, will receivt much more than
Composition and Declamation are madea speciality.'
The methods used during the last term have proved'
very successful, but will-be greatly inproved.
• Original Essays are required of all the older schol
ars or as often at least, as once in two weeks, upon
subjects assigned by the teachers. From this there
need be no appeal. No excuse will be received.
The'Paculty believe that without the ability to use,
successfislly, the tongue and the pen, no person can
be more than half educated.
Callithenics.—ln order to care for the Health of
the students, Watson's celebrated system of Calis
thenics will bee introduced. All the students will ex

- A Course of Lectures will be delivered in the Acad

The Graduating Course is as good as the best.
Those completing it receive Diplomas.
Many improvements and incentives to diligent
study and correct deportment cannot be here men
It is confidently believed that the Ancient and
Modern Languages, Natural Sciences, Mathematics,
and in feet all , the usual Branches of study are as
successfully taught in Welisboro Academy, as in any
