The Philadelphia Press publishes a
letter from a soldiers' widow of that
city to President Johnson, in answer to
that portion of his Cleveland'speech in
which he asked his audience—" Who
made greater sacrifices in the war than
I?" "'Who suffered more than I?" (Stc.,
and submits to the just judgment of
the world whether, on the score of suf
ferings and sacrifices, his claims to pop
ular sympathy and support bear any
Comparison to hers. She says :
"Before the rebellion, sir, I had a
husband, kind,loving, industrious econ
omical, who for myself and our four
little ones made a comfortable provis
ion. "Our hoiniwas-the abode of peace
and plenty. What has became of him?
He was starved to death at A2idersonville,
and that by the 'chivalric' men - whom
your 'policy' would fain restore, without
repentance, to the head - of our govern
ment. • Sinee then I have been trying
my best to earn bread - for my little ones
by plying the neledle. At times, when
that kind of employment has failed me,
I have been obliged to stand, from morn
till night, over the wash-tub. I had two
brothers, steady men, kind and gene
rous. ad the rebellion left them as
it found them, pinching poverty I
should have neverknown. Alas! alas!
one of them perished from exposure
and want on Belle Isle, and the other
had his right arm taken off by a rebel
shell at Antietam. He cannot assist
me. The privations and hardships I
had to endure have shattered my own
health and strength that I feel at times
unable even to endure the fatigue of
plying the needle. So that, except my
trust in a merciful God, I have sacrificed
for my country my ALL—husband,
brothers, house, home,_ living—and I
cast a beggar on the cold charity of the
world. And all this I owe to the South
ern siaveholders, and to their iniquit
ous attempt to murder my beloved
country, as they did murder my hus
band and my brothers.
Now, Mr. Johnson, wince you invite
a comparison, what have you suffered?
Exhibit your scars, and wounds, and
bruises! Did you lose a legnr an arm,
or wereyou even so much as scratched
or bruised? Where is the blood you
shed? Would it stain a white cambric
pocket handkerchief ? How much
property did you lose? Why, if report
speaks true, during most of the time of
the war you were living on the "fat of
the land," in Nashville, out of harm's
way, protected, as you were, by Union
bayonets. Out of Uucle Sam's over
. flowing commissary stores you drew
plenty to eat and to drink—the best of
meats, and, what was of still more con
sequence to you, the choicest of liquors.
Add to this your handsome salary as
Military Govenor. Then the great
Union party, whom you have since so
foully betrayed, made you Vice Presi
dent, with a salary of $B,OOO perannum.
Then, to crown it all, John Wilkes
Booth made you President, and there
you are yet. to the tune of $25,000 a year,
with fizins.' The rebellion found you,
I learn, comparatively a poor man.
Now you are a rich, with a sound body,
not to speak ofyour mind, whose sound- ,
ness is not so certain.
You, Andrew Johnson, talk of your
sacrifices and your sufferings,
lenge a comparison. Fie! fie! upon
you! Why, sir on that score I ought
to be American's Queen, and you ought
to be sweating over the wash-tub. And
now, sir, are your questions as to whom
suffered more than you, who sacrificed
more than you by reason of the war,
answered? /did, sir, and I know hun
dreds of poor women, tossed from the
heights of affluence into the vale of
penury and want, who have suffered
and sacrificed ten thousand times more
than you, and are making no ostenta
tions parade of it either.

WEATHER SlGics.—The Monirose
Republican regards the signs as indicating a se
vere winter. It enumerates as follows : " Hives
full of honey; unusual thickness of corn husks
and furs of wild beasts," etc.
Bees always fill their hives in a good season.
C Jrn husks are always thick when the growth of
stalks is great. And the past season accounts
fully for these signs of a hard winter.
We prophesy that the winter will not be , unu
sually severe. -
TURN TABLE.—Mr. J. B. Trvr,LT,
twenty years ago % resident of this borough, his
had on exhibition at Holiday's Hotel for a few
days, a •model of a Railroad Turn-table, which
for simplicity, and perfect adaptation to the uses
for which it is intended, strikes us as one of the
greatest mechanical triumphs of the age.
The table revolves upon four outer and four
inner wheels held by a crosstrnck, the wheels
running upon an eater and inner track. The
entire weight rests upon the wheels, and in prac
tical use a man, with one band, can easily turn a
a locomotive. The invention ought to make Mr.
Kelly a very rich man.
Loos OUT FOR SWINDLEBS.—The pa
pers down country are advertising a set of sharp
ers who are said to be about nowadays. These
operators sell cloth by sample for houses in the
big cities, as they allege. In some cases the op
erators offer to sell for a trifle, in other cases they
take notes of the purchaser. Beaver cloth is
offered at $1 per yard, Brussels carpeting at 50
cents per yard, and muffins and calicoes at from
6 to 10 cents.
All We bays to say is—a good article costs a
good bit of mousy. .
FELL AMONG THIEVES.—Oar friend,

It is the present purpose of the Pro
prietors of THE AqITATOR to issue the
NlV'rEt Volume,- bginning January 2,
1867, enlarged- to Shirty -two cOtuntits.—
This will require a sheet 26X40 iuches.
The size at present is 24)06' inches.
We are moved to incur this consider
able outlay by reason of the crowded
condition of our columns. We can
not but recognize the rapid growth of
the county and increase our borders in
due proportin. The enlargement of
last January was an experiment. It
succeeded beyond sanguine expectation.
The people responded generously, as
they have again and again, to our effort
to print a paper entirely devoted to the
advancement of the material interests
of Tioga county, and to the enfranchise
ment of Meiv everywhere. Thanks.
The terms of the enlarged paper will
remain as at present-$2 per year, cash.
Shall we never hear the last wail of
the luckless boy whose bread-and-butter
always fell butter-side down?
It is recorded of Alexander that, after
flogging half a dozen petty princes, he
sat down and wept because there were
no more worlds to conquer. We are at
liberty to presume that Alexander was
not only the conqueror of the world,
but the Emperor of the 800-Hoes.
We are reminded of this by the post
election Atoll of the Johnson press.—
Here is a bloody fellow who saith
"It is now becoming the duty of
Democratic Journalists everywhere to
warn the American people that they
eat and sleep and live on the very crater
of a volcano; that earthquakes sur
round them on every side."
Well, that is a• precarious situation.
That the great American people should
"eat sleep and live on the, very . crater
of a volcano" is bad enough. But to be
"surrounded by earthquakes ou every
side" in addition, is positively al arm
ing if not unsafe.
We have heard of, and sympathize
with the six Mexican greasers who
were surrounded and captured by an
Irishman, though history does not say
whether he " surrounded them on every
side." We have a dini recollection of
one Crockett, who tells of his surround
ing a raccoon; but we regret that Da
vid neglected to say whether lie " sur
rounded him on every side."
The American people are said to
" bolt " their meals; that is, to eat in
haste. Much has been written in ex
planation of this national characteristic,
but we suspect that the aforesaid edito
rial 800-Hoo gives us a clue to the true
reason. It is not unlikely that the
American people have an instinctive
knowledge that they take their nation
al coffee and ham and eggs on the very
crater of a volcano; and this instinctive
knowledge would naturally enough
cause them to swallow their coffee, and
bolt their ham and eggs, in indecent
Again—the American people are
proverbially in a hurry. Some have
tnought, that this characteristic arose
irom the vast amount of labor required
to develop the resources of this great
country. We Quspect that this is not
the true reason. We have only to imag
ine them " Barri:Sanded by earthquakes
on every side," and the " hurry " is
sufficiently accounted for.
The question gets serious. If we are
" surrounded by earthquakes on
every side," which way can we run?
Turn to the north and we shall be con
fronted by an earthquake I to the east,
and behold, an earthquake! totheSouth,
and 10, another earthquake ! to the west,
and still an earthquake !
Thus we " swing around the circle,"
and find a lion in the guise of an earth
quake in our path.
There is a ray of hope in the supposi- ,
tion that some one of these menacing
earthquakes may 'prematurely explode
.iwith a teritan ague. Some one of them
may fizzle out—that one, for instance,
supposed to be in charge of the "Democ
racy" and so open up an avenue of es
cape. But at present the American peo
ple are in a ticklish position.
If this uproarious, 800-Hoo editor,
had stopped at this point, we cannot
but thinkbe had done well. But , he
does not Pause. Arising like a dung
hill fowl frond the asses of the' crater
aforesaid, he mounts an earthnuake and
" Whether handwriting has been seen
upon . the walls of this nation we know
not, but that the days of the Republic
are numbered may well be feared." •
We suspect that there is " handwriting
upon the walls," and that this corporal
of the 800-Hops has seen it. Hence
this 800-Hoo. Firstly—Pennsylvania
took up the stylus and wrote in John
Hancockordan characters on the wall,
DEATH TO TREASON! i:Fo also did Ohio,
Maine, Vermont, Indiana, and others.
And on the first Tuesday In November,
New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Michi
g.an, lowa, Missouri, Kansas, and Ne-
Ada, wrote under that sentence in let
ters of tire—" The people. cannot be in

Now, gentlemen, try a little philoso
phy. Andrew Johnson cannot dictate
the terms of national restoration. He
submitted the whole matter to the peo

But we agree with the 800-Hoos that ,
there are earthquakes ahead-of the same:
sort as those which shook the friends of
treason and Andrew Johnson from their
feet on the 2d Tuesday of October, and
again on the first Tuesday in November,
No wonder the disciples of freagOtt - are

trict of which Tioga constituted a part;

ular branch of Congress, and nd man
scored up a better record than he.
The Troy Gazette reviews the entire
situation and after giving each candi
date a fair examination, declares for
Geu. Cameron in terms of praise which
were never more justly bestowed.
Being personally aware of the truth
of its summing up in favor of Gen Cam
eron, we append it here:
•' Simon Cameron, with a fair record as a Sena
tor, familiar with the details of statesmanship—
himself a part of the war—and intimate with all
its working—standing square on the slavery ques
tion, prompt to favor the arming of negroes ; the
honored member of Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet; of un
questioned loyalty to the Union end to Pennsyl
yenta, both in her general and in her local and
agricultural concernments; with large personal,
landed and proprietary interests in the industrial
puriuits of the State; with long time experience
in public and corporate business; and possessing
as he does the confidence of the people, htkis pre
eminently fit for Senator, and be will stand in
that body with.nime his suparior in wisdom and
sagacity, prudence and public spirit."
is but truth to say that Gen. Cam
eron was among the first to comprehend
the magnitude of the late struggle. He
was in favor of raising 500,000 men so
early as May UM, and the first to urge
the enfranchisement of the slaves and
the arming of the negro. And this we
state from personal knowledge.
The papers below the mountains have
not spoken generally. But they favor
Thad. Stevens and Curtin in the
central Counties. Mr. Stevens, we see
it stated, is for Gen. Cameron. Gov.
Curtin hag - numerous friends in all sec
tions, but the indiscreet action of some
of his advocates will inure to his dam
age. The people do not desire to be
forced into the support of any man.
A WORD TO FARBIRREI.—Now that ll
oga County is slowly, but caftainly gravitating
to its normal position among grazing counties it
would seem to be necessary to urge farmers to
pursue that method of stock-keeping which will
render the business profitable.
In the first place, cow', to do well require near
ly as much attention as horses. They should
not be left to house themselves under the lee Of
sheds, barns, fences, and hay-stacks to escape
winter cold and storm. They should be stabled.
The stables should be warm, well-ventilated, and
commodious. Any stable in which the manure
will freeze is fair winter weather is too cold for
cows. If stables be built half underground, and
with &southerly e4osure,.for the weather side,
closely underpinned; and ventilated though. the
roof, they may be considered to be in good order.
Cows should be separated from each other by
partition bars, and the compartments should be
large enough to permit of the turning of the cow
at will. Stanchions are relics of barbarism. Ty
ing by the head is better, but freedom, to shift.
position is best.
Cows should be bedded every night and cur
ried every morning. Some may regard this as
too much labor, but it pays. Cows should 'come
out of the winter-keep in good condition; that is,
they should not come out bide-bound and rough
coated. If you want a profitable dairy you must
give your cows good beds and good feed ; and
you must do their "scratching" through the *in
- Bedding cows prevents tbemfroM slipping and
sprawling in the stable. It also keeps them clean.
All useful animals like to be clean. Currying
them keeps the skin in good order and removes
the old coat. Leaving them loose in the stable
permits them to lick themselves at will; and this
is one requisite to bovine happiness.
We offer these hints as not being new, but just
as good as new. They do not pertain to theoreti
cal farming at all. We have seen them acted
upon with the hest results. In all old dairy
counties this plan is pursued by dairymen who
work to thrive, and with marked profit. It is not
enough to furnish open sheds for cattle. They
must be 'housed, not too warmly, but snugly.—
ventilation should bo secured of course ; but let
it be through the roof of the stable, and riot by
slide windows at the side. Particular attention
should be directed to the underpininng of stabler.
Tbey should be secured against an np-current of
cold air through the ground floor. This keeps
feet and legs of the cows warm.
Though it is a long time since vre were stable
boy, we do not propose to apologize for offering
these hints. If anybody has better information
to give they shall have space to give it.
