Let' us thank GOD and take courage I Slavery

ard'e proclamation of civil freedom to every
Man, woman, and child in the republic. ' This
is a memorable year; a year of grand triumphs
in the cause of human progress.
We see that Son. S. F. Thum is put on

bled—and kept on buying—until grumbling
come to be a sort of habit. We called at the
meat shop and asked for steak, or chop, or roast,
as the case might be ; and twenty cents a pound
—tbe invariable reply—went to the marrow of
our pocket.
Finally, people began to ask us if we couldn't
do something to bring down the high pricea;
and we thought not. But happening to pur
chase a pair of chickens, and to pay for them
at the rate of twenty cents a pound, our indig
nation arose like one regenerated, and caused
us to inquire into the philosophy of present
high prices.
Looking at the Towands, market rates we
find that Potatoes are 7 . 5 cents a bushel ; here
they are $l,OO. Chickens are'l4 cents a pound
in Towanda, and 2.o.cents here. Turkeys are
16 cents a pound in Towanda, and 22 cents
In York, Pa., Potatoes are 60 cents-a bushel,
Chickens 50 gents to $l. Per pair, beef from 15
to 18 cents, pork 14 to 18 cents, mutton 12 to
16 cents, lard 20 to 25 cents (30 cents, here),
an so on:
Why should Wellsboro be an exception ?
whY should we pay more for eatables than they
do in Townada and York ?
We answer : Because we have no outlet or
inlet by rail, so' as to bring produce and goods
down to market prices elsewhere by competition.'
Let cis look at the case dispassionately.—
Remonstrate with the farmers and they reply
" You traders charge us more than traders in
Corning and Elmira ;If they put it on - w-uni
we must put the tariff on our produce. ; ' -
Just so. We do not begrudge the farmer
such Prices as he can get for his produce. , For
if the farmers are prosperous the country cadet
pros Per. ' But we ask them candidly to say if
twenty Cente a pound for chickens—which cost
nothing to raise and fat—is not asked and taken,
simply because they have the consumer at their
mercy ? Do they pretend to say that it costs
even one cent a pound to raise abiokens?
We guess not. Chickens are the scavengers
of farm premises, and may be considered clear
On the other hand—it is an apparent fact
thavour traders take a similiar liberty with the
consumers of their wares. They do business
away from the great bights-els of travel to and
from trade centers ; and, like other people who
aspire to ' make money out of business, they
sometimes charge exorbitantly because they
have the consumer "on the hip." We suspect
that both parties speak the truth of each other ;
but this recriminating system of doing business
by barter, breeds bad blood between parties.
It ought to be abandoned. The farmer may
justly charge market prices for staples, leas
the cost of getting his stuff to market. And
the trader may charge market prices (New
York) for his wares, with the cost of trans
portation, waste and breakage,. added. Thus
—if beef is worth 20 cents in New York, the
farmer may properly charge 20 cents, less the
cost of getting his cattle to New York ; and if
sugar is retailing at 18 cents in New York, the
grocei may charge 18 cents, with freight and
wastage added, here in Welisboro. ,
Bat are the prices fixed by this standard
either by farmers or traders ?
We guess not. New York- market governs
the butter trade, and nothing else. We send
butter and cheese to the city,,but not beef, or
poultry, or potatoes.
We have tried to set a good example before
the people in this respect. Paying, on an
average, for the last -three years, 250 per cent,
more for paper, ink, and material than we used
to pay ten years ago, we only advanced on pa
per 50 per cent and our advertising and job
work 25 per cent. And while there has been
no competition with us for three years, our
prices for advertising and job work have been,
and still are, from 25 to 50 per cent; lower than
they are elsewhere. We put the 'Agitator dein
to $l, in 1855; and the farmer,. brought as a
cord of wood for $l. We raised the paper to
$1,50, in 1863 ; and the farther brought us a
cord of Wood for $2.
Now we ask for a candid opinion : Have we
not tried the experiment of selling , below, the
market rates thoroughly ? And con one man
say that he met us half-way? It has cost us
three times as much to print a paper, these
three years, as it did ten years ago ; we only
charge half as much again now. line any far
mer or trader in this county .met us half way ?
Not one. So, the excare•that these high pri
ces, on,both sides, are based altogether upon
high prices for everything, is not valid. The
truth is—and none of us are privileged to,
blink it,—mea take advantage of each'itther, to
a greater or lege extent; everywhere. Our iso
lated position, away from commercial highways,
pilte ue at the mercy of each other i and the
„quality a human mercy Strained: We like
to " eock it" to each other when, we buy imad

DEC. 27, 1 865.1 So /1312th for a pair of chickens:
Should you invite a man to sit 'down at your
table and partake of .the best ,Your larder af
forded; and he should beaten to accept your
hospitality ; and having picked a bone should
fling it in ionr face—Sou would not have a
very exalted opinion of that ungrateful and ill
bred guest, nor would you - hasten - to proffer
him your hospitality again.
Or• should you find a man shivering, in the
winter cold, thinly clad and badly shod,i and
should invite' him to enter • your house and
warm hie'ehivering body ; and having done so
he should curse your house, and all who dwelt
therein—pa would not sit down and write an
essay on Gratitude as- the main-spring of hu
man character."
Or, should your neighbor destroy your fet;ces
and crops, put a torch to your barns and gran
aries, and tut the - throats of your children-;
and you, having overcome him, should invite
him to return to reason andgood citizenship ;
and he, in the hour, of his subjugation should
solemnly promise to live hereafter in peace with
you and yours, yet should employ the first hour
of his release and pardon in cursing you—You
would not descant upon the beauties of pardon
to high offenders against the laws and'he be.
heats of Order. .
But if you, , yeurself, were an ingrate, a mur
derer, an incendiary, and-a- defier a , - law mad
order, you would be the apOlogist of snob men.
You would, preach moderation in de'aliag
with such offenders, and find some lawyer-like
excuse for such outrageous conduct.
Just so.
Therefore, we are in no wise eurprised to see
that the sympathizers of treason in the North
entirely overlook the fact of the baseness and
black ingratitude of certain prominent rebels
who have been all submission until pardoned,
and have gone out cursing the Government
whose clemency they sought and received, with
the pardon in their betide and the ink not
yet dried upon it,".
We say again what we have said before—that
the clemency of the President was well exer
cised. It was well to give to the world some
idea ofthe unutterable baseness of character
which resulted in the most inexcusable treason
the world ever witnessed.
Should you awake some night "and find a
robber departing with your valuables, we are
not certain that it might not be ,well to offer
him your carriage in which to carry away his
That might 'shame him somewhat; or it
might send'a shtift of remorse home to his reek=
less soul; and he might soften so much as to
leave your mall change with you so that, you
could make change with your butcher.
However—opinions, like tastes, differ: Some
people would insist on a gag-bit for such pe
riod of time ati.might be sufficient to bring on
a couuria...4
Many times a day we are asked " what will
they do with Jeff Davis ?" and—" Is there any
danger of Congress letting those (tnisconstruct
ed) reconstructed rebels . in ?"
There can be but .one reply to the first ques
tion, as we see it; and that is: "Jeff Davis
will be deliberately tried for treason, and if
convicted, as he must be, hung." We say this
not because we know anything beyond what
every man may know ; but because this is the
only reply that any roan's self•respect will ad.
mit of being made. If a 'man guilty of -the
highest known crime and so smeared from crown
to heel with the blood of innocence as is Pattie,
is to be turned loose upon society, then , what
crime should be punished, what man can com
mit crime punishable "'wits death ?
And as to the latter question—it is not at all
probable that any State will be permitted a
representation in Congress until it brings forth
fruit meet for repentance. That is, it must re•
pudiate—at once and forever—Slavery, and the
rebel debt. And it must also make some. pro.
visions for its liberated slaver.
Reconstruction is a work of time. The wire
edge of defeat cuts the rebel lenders to the
quick. • But the 'Union lives in the hearts of
the masses, and therefore can nver die.
