THE GREAT REVIVAL
We note in nearly all of four exchan
ges from the east;that a - very considera
ble•religious awakening is going on in
all tbe country east of the meridian of
The east has been the birth-place ) of
almost everything good in the nature
of rcligious,'moral,and politibal reform.
It has given birth to atheism/license,
and despotism, also. But hue purpose
does not lie in resolving the east into
its original elements and
account of good and evil'. -
Our bu , ..ineF:s is with' the good that
rises iii the east and sweeps westward
over the land, periodically.
we hope the revival will pursue
the Way of its predecessors, and take
Wells/kill.° in its Course It is needed
here for several reaeons. We hope it
will come along and achieve several
reforms, to wit:
The awakening o the well-disposed
people of this neig borhood to such a
degree that they will arisewith strength
ened spinal columns, and righteously
indignant souls, to set about restricting
the 'domination •of whiskey, and finally
banish itto the realm of the devil whence
'Solomon was right in saying that
" there is nothing new under the sun."
The reign of unbridled license, which
the ignorant name — liberty," is noth
ing new. It has reigned, somewhere,
since the world began. Its interregnums
are few and brief. It will always rule
where men regard the profits of trade
as something of greater moment than
the betterment of mankind.
We appeal to the . sober, solid, and
good men of Wellsboro, if they would
just now present this village in an ex
hibition where a premium was, offered
for the best regulated town. Do the
daily and nightly exhibitions in our
streets commend the town to the favor
able notice of strangers, to say nothing
of those who live in the midst of its dis
order and must endure it from day to
We guess not. We guess that even
the most moss-grown conversative will
admit that there is room for improve
ment here. •
Go back with us, in mind, ten years.
:lie praise of Wellsboro was the theme
of every stranger who came into our com
munity. The town was reputed abroad
for its,, order, thrift, and sobriety. Far
mers came to town, transacted their
business, and went home sober and se
date. Young men had something to do
And did it. Women could walk the
town, on any street, without being
shocked by reeling blasphemers.
" Ah, but the town was dull' and
hum-drum then," some one will say.*
Well, so be it. If drunkenness consti
tutes briskness, then give us hum-drum.'
But if sobriety)and good order are not
the pioneers of permanent thrift, then
we have been (taught all wrong.
Look at the town now. We have not
seen a stranger of correct habits for two
years who had not some censure for
Wellsboro. Our repute abroad is fallen
very low. Farmers come to town in
the morning and stay all day, going
home full of very vile whiskey at night.
Do you thank their families thank us,
rho know better, for permitting this
evil to grow mountainous without
rebuke? They do not , thank us. They
curse us in their heart of hearts.
But the revival alluded to could, pos
sibly, achieve another reform.
It might, possibly, send neighborhood
tattling back to the devil, whence it
came. Not that WelLsboro is worse
than other towns in this respect.
Probably it is not. Gossip is the straw
berrids-and-cream of small villages.
But we need to abandon it, notwith
standing. " So-and-so has said, or done,
so-and-so"—is an assertion made oftenest
on hearsay (which is an infernal liar)
and not upon ascertained fact. j " Who
told you ?" commonly reveals the fact
that nobody responsible told anybody.
It is all hearsay—or common rumor, or
" But people will talk, you know!"
Yes, we know that ; but it were better
had some people been born 'dumb for
all that. People will talk of course ;
but they should be constrained, by
good example, and by healthy public
opinion, to contirie their " talk" to
theme's with which they are acquainted.
Briefly—let people talk about princi
ples rather than men and women. It is
none of our business whether John
Smith* eats butter on his slap jacks or
not. It is none of our business whether
Sam. Jones lives beyond his means, or
There is also a class of people in all
communities who, when remonstrated
with for incorrect habits, reply—" why,
so-and-so is as bad as I am." I Why, a
roan could excuse hithsell for steating
with just as Mitch propriety. To all
such people we 'put this question : How
many good deeds have you ever done
because " so-and43o" set the example? :
Take that home with you.
So '4!,'e look for some good to come out
of the revival which seenis to be coming
this way. Let it come.

of a gonday daily is done on Sunday.

These protesting Clergynian remind

We thank our brethren of the press
for their generous notices of THE AGI
TATOR arid its progress in the march of
improvement. The,' proprietors hope
that they have only begun the work.
Already, advertisers crowd us for room,
and unless the rush subsides we shall

THE LAW OW EVIDENCE
We copy below abill lately introduced
into the State legislature, and which we
trust will pass, modify big the law of evi
dence in an important and necessary
particular. The old rule—exclusion of
interested parties from the witness stand
has long enough been a stone of stumb
ling in the path of justice. The jury
will determine without ditliculty what
allowance, if any, must be made for the
stat ement i 'of a suitor under oath. We
hope our),lnembers will vote for it.
Here is the bill:
See. 1. That on the trial of any issue joined,
or of any matter.or qaestion, or en any inquiry
arising in any suit action, or other proceeding, in
any court of justice in this commonwealth, or be
fore any person having by law or by consent dr
parties authority to hear, reeeive and. examine
evidence, the parties thereto and the persons in
whose behalf any such action or other proceeding
may be brought or defended, and any and alt per
sons interested in the same shall, except as here—
inafter excepted, be competent to give evidence,
either viva vote or by deposition, according to
the'practice of the court, on behalf of either or
any of, the parties to the said action or other
proceeding; Provided, That nothing herein con
tained shall render any person who is charged
with any offence in any criminal proceeding, com
petent or compellable to give evidence for or
against himself, or shall reuder any person. com
pellable to answer any question tending Cu .crimi.
nate himself, or herself, or shall in any criminal
proceeding render any husband competent or
compellable to give evidence for or against hiS
wife, or any - wile competent or compellable to
give.evidence fur or against her husband, or in
any proceeding ieetixated in consequence of adul
tery; nor shall any hustliniii . lie catpipeuatatt, to
disclose any communication made to him by his
wife during the marriage, nor shall any wife be
compellable to disclose any communication made
to her by her husband during the marriage.
The work at the Sylvania Oil well is
now progressing favorably. The depth
is fast approaching 600 feet. The indi
cations are most favorable and we
should not be surprised to hear at any
hour of the salisfactory and remunera
tive result of the enterprise. Even now
the well yields quantities of " black
soot" and gas which burns freely upon
the debris brought up by thesand pump
—indications which are regarded as al
most infallible by those experienged in
the business. We anticipate success
and earnestly hope that our anticipa
tions may not end in disapointment.—
The Pope, it seems, no longer conceals
from himself . the impending doom of
his temporal dominions. In addressing
- the French troops on the Ist of January,
he expressed the fear that the enemies
of the Church would go to Rome after .
the departure of the French troops. So,
it seems, all parties in Italy are agreed
that this withdrawal of the French
.troops will be very soon followed by a
revolution in Rome, and a demand of
the Romans for annexation to Italy.
A VINEGAR-MAKING ANIMAL.—In
Paris there are people of curious crea
tures from China. One is a tortoise or
small turtle, with green hair floating
from under his shell. The other-crea
ture is a hideous, revolving looking
polypUs, endowed with the peculiar
attribute of making vinegar. It is a
monstrous assemblage of fleshy mem
branes and glutinous tubes,.and a mass
of misshapen appendages, which give it
a revolting and hideous aspect. You
will suppose it to be lifeless, but if you
touch it, it writhes andashimes various
forms, proving its, vitalitgr The struc
ture of this creature is but little known.
