    A clergyman living not one thousand
miles from Proetorsville, Vt., having
attended's' watch-meeting, returned to
his home about one o'clock on New
Year's morning, and found a team
hitched in front of his door, and acouple
in his house. the object of their visit
was soon made known by the young
man, who informed the clergyman that
he wished to be married to the young
lady who was in the other room arrang
ing he toilet. The rest of the story is
thus _told by the Rutland Herald:
The clergyman suggested that it was
an unseasonable hour fora wedding, and
proposed that they postpone the nuptial
ceremony tin the next day. In reply to
this the young man said that they were
not intending to be married until the
next day, but had - concluded the even
ing previous to take a trip to his home
in Jeffrey,'_C. H., an goine down
to Wind:tendon on the nighttrain. The
story - was so plausible that the clergy
man Married ther,p.. They leftand went
to the hotel in the village, where they
spent the remainder of the night. In
tne morning they went to the depot to
take the train for Ludlow, neglecting to
pay their bill at the hotel, or for theb
team hired at the liver? stable.
The landlord follow&d them and de
manded his bill of the
which he paid. The livery stable keep
er also went and presented his bill of
three dollars for the use of the team.
This bill was also paid and the man
returned to his stable and discovered
that the whip he had furnished the
young couple was missing,. He went
back Immediately to the depot, and de
manded pay for the lost whip, , which
the happy bridegroom handed over.
On return7sg to the stable be found the
runners of the sleigh were broken. and
fearing the train might leave before he
could reach the depot, hastened thither
and presented a bill for the third time
to the happy but unlucky man, who
paid five dollars for the damage done to
the runners of the sleigh.. The CaTS Fo on
arrived and took the young couple to
Ludlow, and the livery stable keeper
returned to his stable. On. examining
his sleigh more critically he found that
the beams of thesleigh were also broken.
Hitching up a team, he soon started for
Ludlow sad found the young bride
groom, and for the fourth tithe presen
ted a bill which was this aril'e cancelled
with a five dollar greenbaekw' Nothing
More occurred to mar the •pleasure of
their honeymoon till the up mail train
arrived at Ludlow, when off stepped a
young man in search of the runaway
This man had a bill to present to the
young bridegroom who had proved his
rival in thin love affair, the facts of which
were that the two young gentlemen,
then confronting each other, had both
been courting the Salile ; but !over
No. 1 (who had just arrived on the train
in search of the fugitives), got the girl
to promise to marry him, and after they
had appointed the wedding day, invited
lover o 2 to attend the festivities. 'The
invited lover stole a march on his rival,
and on the evening alluded to, procured
a team and went to see the lady, and af
ter a few minutes' conversation, they
agreed to proceed to the minister's resi
dence, as above, and become "twain of
one flesh."
The truant girl, however, did not fail
to array herself in the marriage gar
ments furnished her by lover No. I,
who; when learning of the proceedings,
was greatly incensed thereat, and, upon
meeting his rival at Ludlow, claimed
that the haughty girl had promised to
marry him, and that he had bought the
nice clothes that she had on her at that
time—her wedding suit. The bride
groom remonstrated with the rejected
lover, whose indignation would be qui
eted with nothing short of full payment
for the nice "lothes that he had furnish
ed the treacherous girl.
But here the bridegroom was in a bad
situation : such inroads had been made
upon his financial resourccs that his
last bill (the unkindest cutof all) over
sized them, and he was unable to pay
it, how muchsoever he might have de
sired to. But his relentless opponent
was uncompromising in his demands,
and nothingshort ofall the bridegroom's
money and watch would.sathify his
wounded heart and depleted pocket
At last the bridegroom yielded to
these stern demands, and gave up his
watch and last dollar, and doubtless
feels rich in the possession of one who
has forsaken another and agreed to cling
unto him alone through life.
Gov. Geary has adopted the following
judicious rules to be observed In all ap

This afternoon about five o'clock, the
ice broke up in the Chemung River at
this point and began to move. It be
came demanded at the highway bridge
leading to Knoxville and soon carried
off the bridge, which broke into three
portions; one lodged on the bank near
ly opposite the Corning Warehouse;
another lodged on the bank at the upper
end of the narrows, , or upon the pier of
the late Tow-path bridge ; the third por
tion went over the dam, and was so
broken up that it passed safely under
the highway bridge near the Corning
Mills. It raked it some, but did no
special damage. There was a large '
crowd of people attracted to the-river as
the sections of the bridge floated down,
and consequently great excitement and
fear that it might involve the destruc
tion of the bridge below the Canal dam.
The Knoxville bridge was built in the
spring of 1847. It was first built about
the year 1833, and was carried irTln the
spring of 1840. The bridge stolid until
the fall of 1846. The loss of thik bridge
is a serious calamity, us a new tole will
be quite an expense in these tax times.
We presume there will soon be- a pon
toon bridge laid for travel, or a ferry
established. Corning Journal, Feb. i 6.

WEDNESDAY, FEB. 20, 1.81,7.
Hon. S. F. Wilson please accept thanks
for a copy of the proposed tariff bill.
We are obliged to Auditor kieneral
Hartranft for copies of his
n annual Re
port, and of Reports of Banks and Sa
vitig,s Institutions for 1.886. "•
To state Treasurer Rernble for u: copy
of his annual Report of Finances.
To Dr. John Curwen, superintendent
of the State Hospital for the rneane.
Our readers will have, ere this, exam
ined the annual Statement of the Coni
mi.ssioners, and Audifors of the Coun
ty for leGd. We regard it as a gratify
ing, exhibit of the state of the finances,
and an earnest of the ability of the'Codn
iy to extinguish the war debt in short
er time than was thought sufficient for
that purpose.
It appears that during the Past year
6112,097,90 of the debt. has • been extin
guished, leaving a balance of $217;400,-
SO tb be lifted. The original war debt
of the County was $469,572,75, tiPon
which there had been paid up to Jan.
16,160, $173,000,17. It app&its that Mr.
Miller, the present efficient Treasurer,
paid, in principal and interest, last year
So, we safely say that two years will
suffice to close up the war debt of the
County, taking the payments of 1866 as
the standard. Probably a portion of
the debt is funded in bonds maturing
at a later period, which Will prolong the
period of indebtedness somewhat.
,T he
prospect is by no means discouraging
as we see it ; and we predict that the
County will be none thk worse for pay
ing-this large indebtedness. •
Mr. Jones broke the handle out of his
,axe ; " By good lucZ:," said be to him
self, " I have a spare handle, which I
made the other nieht out of a bit of
second growth hickory grown on my
own premises."
On the atone day, Mr. Smith broke
the handle out of his axe ; " Jim," said
he, "g o o down to the I j illage; and get a
helve for the axe. Tell 'em to charge
Mr. Smith had plenty of nice hick
ory timber on his farm, and plenty of
spare make his own axe-helves.
Now, which was the more economical
of the two? Other things being equal,
the note of which of these men would
you prefer to carry in your pocket?
You say, "Mr. Jones."
You would prefer Jones's note, also.
Well, Jones depends on home manu
factures and development of home re
sources; Smith represents that school
of Free Trade which imports What can
be produced at home as cheaply as it
can be imported; but whh this differ
ence—you get the itnpoitation on tick,
and you must pay cash for the home
We have heard all the arguments for
Free Trade; born and reared in the
midst of Free Trade influences, in a
manufacturing region whose interests
had been fostered until they could fair
ly compete with foreign capital, there
-1 fore further protection; so
our educational bias is toward free trade.
But we nevertheless find our convict
ions decidedly tending toward a protec
tive system, one which shall foster the
industrial interests, and at the same
time develop the immense latent resour
ces of the country.
Should a farmer, possessed of a good
farm, purchase his oats, hay and corn,
permitting his fields to grow up weeds,
Canada thistles and hard-hack, his in
telligent neighbors would pronounce
him a shiftless fellow and a fool. Yet
the champions of Free Trade advocate
a system which involves as great folly,
because it dooms our mines of iron and
coal to undevelopment, and forces us to
buy what we ought to produce.
We are aware that the champions of
Free Trade declare that the burden of
taxation by duties falls upon the consu
mer. To this we reply, that the consu
mer is bettered proportionably as ! th•
number of producers is increased, and
oppressed in the ratio of the decrease of
production; therefore, the low tariff
system increases the burden of the con
sumes by paralyzing Production.
The effect of patronising foreign mar
kets for articles the crude materials for
which abound at home, is paralleled
completely in the - mse of the miser, who
heaps his cash in an old chest, and gets
a living by days' works. Money should
be put out with use, else it is dead cap
ital. The resources of a country, if not
developed, are likewise:lead capital.
On the other hind, when an induce
ment to the development of internal re
sources is offered, capital at once ad
dresses itself to the work of develop
ment, and every acre of timber, coal,
and iron lands becomes so much added
capital in reserve.
It is argued by free traders ,f bat pro
tection creates manufacturing monopo
lies. Admit it, and what then? Isnot
Europe, whose markets we patronize,
full of monopolies? In patronizing
them do we not support monopolies?
But the fact is, that where the opera
tion of the laws of trade is unimpeded
by class legislation, there can be no mo
nopoly of manufacture or trade„ The
whole matter is one of concentration of
capitaL A Sim ii4olvent to begin with
will go to the wall' in competing with a •
solvent firm. If the arguments of free
traders mean anything, they mean that
no capital shall be rendered able to suc
cessfully compete with capital ; in other
words, if all mechanics cannot become
employers, then no mechanic shall be
come an employer.
That is not a Commonsense argument
and ought to have been demolished long
ago.. Accumulated capital is an evil, or
it is not. If an evil, then kill it; but if
not an evil, direct it and protect it. To
expect American capitalists to compete
with British capital—the former paying
double the hire for labor that the latter
does—is unreasonable. But to crown
the wrong, withotit protection, the for
eign manufacturer' is able to cell an 'in
ferior article for nearly as good a price
as home producers command fOr the
same Article of superior grade. In this
Country cheapness is more sought after
ihau - excelleuce. Hence, boom manu
facturers areshiitrout of market: -.1,,
Our facilities for the production of the
staples of manufacture are nuequaled in
the world. But while manufacturers of
long establishment and unlimited cap
ital, can come into market with equal
advantage in other respects, the United
States might as well be without unrival
ed resources as with them. Under the
system of Free Trade we are like a 1000
'horse-power engine without wood and
water. - • - - -• ; • • • •
Will the President be impeaeherd ? '
manyquestion is propounded to us
many times a day; and we desire to re
ply that—
know 'no better about that than
our catechizers. However, we have no
expectation of Andrew Johnson's im
peachment. That be has done, and
omitted to do, many things upon which
1 his impeachment might be had, is un
questionable. But the American pea
' ple are long-suffering, and-seldom pun
ish where punishment can be avoided.
We are not particularly desirous of
the impeachment of the President. It
does not now seem likely that he will
have an opportunity to further imperil
pnblic liberty during his term: Con
gress has generously relieved him from .
a contingent exercise of doubtful pow
ers bY ysolvingliself into a perpetual
body. But we are
_Pot of those who
shrink from the consequences of the
enforcement of law, whether they af
fectl persons of low or high degree. The
American habit of forgiveness and am
nesty before confession and repentance,
has had the effect to quadruple the in
ducements to crime within the last half
century. Compounding felony has
come to be a smart subterfuge of the at
torney, and the restraining statute has
fallen into a condition of hopeless par
More than a year ago, the spn. of an
eminent banker in New York perpetra
ted a series of involving a loss
of more than half a million of money.
He was apprehended, pleaded guilty,
and was sentenced to a term of penal
servitude in the penitentiary. Yet, his
crime did not cause "so much disturb
ance in the circle iu which he moved,
as the rifling of a grocer's till would
cause in our isolated village: This fact
should teach us something. It should
teach ns that, by some vicious practice,
crime is not graduated according to its
magnitude, or intrinsic turpitude, but
rather with regard - to the social status
of the perpetrator.
Taking this view of the ease, the ne
cestilty for arraigning Andrew Johnson
for maladministration in his office, ap
pears very great. But is he not al
ready arraigned before the highest trib
unal in the land—Public Opinion—tried
and convicted, and sentenced to lasting
shame by ballot? We regard him as
' already impeached and punished. The
question now is,—what is to be gained
by a formal arraignment of the culprit
before the representatives of the people
—who have already inflicted upon him
the severest penalty _hp law provided.?
We submit . the question to the ;people,
and pass from consideration of the sub
ject for the present.
Our neighbor Goodrich, of the Brad
ford Reporter, is engaged in taxidermic
labors; the subject in hand being Col.
McClure, of Chambersburg. We sus
pect that • the specimen, after having
been properly prepared, will hardly
prove a valuable acquisition to the mu
seum of any private gentleman. The
specimen is too common.
HoWever, our • friend O'Meara is a
skillful Bayer; and though the process
of Skinning eels is not one we step out
of the way to witness, we own that we
have been an attentive and much edi
fied observer of the denudation of the
gentleman whose stables and wines
were patronized, and pronounced very
superior, by Jubal Early. We have
watched hiS flaying with greater satis
faction, because he not long ago set up
in the bush:less of manufacturing a
cheap sort of public morality, much'in
vogue among politicians of his class, on
about the smallest capital ever risked.
Andrew Jackson once declared, that he
who traded on borrowed capital ought
to break ; we can find no utterance of
thatfunetionary touching trade on no
capital whatever, but judging from Mr.
Goodrich's movements we conclude
that he dooms such moral impecuniosi
ty to undergo the rack.
While Mr. McClure was bririgin,g
charges against Gen. Cameron—charges
without foundation, as we believe,—we
ventured to say that a stone thrown to
ward Chambersburg would break a deal
of glass in Col. M'Clure's neighborhood.
Friend Goodrich has thrown that stone.
The effect on the glazed portion- of the
Colonel's dwelling reminds us of the
ravages of a hailstorm.
The Senate of this Commonwealth,
on the 6th instant, did something for
the cause of impartial justice and the
extinction of barbarism, In passing an
act making it a penal offbnce for any
railroad corporation to make distinc
tions among passengers on account of
race or color. The offence is punisha
ble by a fine of, not more than $5OO, nor
less than $lOO.
This, of course, will shock the dirtier
portion of the pro-slavery party; and
will replenish their cartridge-boxes for a
season. It is awful to contemplate.
During the summer of 1860, we were
on a trip from Washington to New York
—the day being very sultry, and the
cars crowded to the.utmost of their ca
pacity. Among'the passengers were a
number of Southerners, with their fam
ilies, on the way to Newport and Lynn
Beach. Accompanying these South
rons, and having charge of sundry ba
bies, were three or four colored women.
While passing through Maryland and
Delaware we observed no avoidance of
the seats occupied by these colored peo
ple by passengers. However, we soon
entered the kingdom of Camden and
Amboy ; sad at Camden received a
fresh instalment of passengers, among
whom were a man and woman, whose
clothing and persons were terribly sug
gestive of cholera. The car had but
two uno&upled seats—half of two seats.
being each occupied by a colored nurse.
The conductor urged the dirty pair of
Jersey folk to occupy these vacant half
seals. The Jersey folk drew back in
reir-hot indignation: "D—d if,me sr
my old woman 'll set by a dirtynegur I"
shouted the indigparit Jerseyman.
In a moment, a tall, bewblskered
Southerner, and a fine-looking lady,
occupying a seat together, vacated their
seat and quietly dropped down beside
the colored nurses, the gentleman po
litely pointing the protestants to the
vacant seat.
This, thought we, is better than a
play ; It is a sermon.
Feb. 8: The Senate discussed the
proppsition to transfer the printing or
the debates in Congress from the Globe

The bill to admit Nebraska, vetoed
by the President 'was taken up and pass

During the debate on Reconstruction
Mr. Banks stated that there ought to

offered a resolution for the 'extension of
the right of Suffrage to women. It was
laid over. The Committee appointed to
investigate' the New Orleans Massacre
reported, together with a bill for the re
organization of civil government in
Louisiana. The previous question was
demanded on the reception of the bill
and the demand seconded. A motion
to reconsider the vote seconding the
yirevfous question was lost. The Demo
crats filibustered awhile bnt without
effect, and the mover of the previous
question on the bill announced his in
tention to move an adjournment before
the main question should be put in or
der to permit members to read the bill,
which provides :
1. That by and with the advice and
consent of the Senate, the President

Shop. His home became frightened by
a piece of paper blown by the wind.
Mr. Bowies was beside the cart, and
undertook to hold the horse by the bit,
but as the animal endeavored to run,
and the ground was slippery. Mr. R.,
was unable to control it, and was thus
drawn several rods, until he struck a
hitching-post in front of the Harness
Shop. The post was broken. by the
concussion, and Mr. R., fell insensible.
He was taken up and carried into the
office of Graves Cc Nills. His head was
badly cut, but there was no fracture of
the skull. He was carried to his home,
in Knoxville, and every effort was
made for his relief. He became con
scious in a few hours, and some hopes
were had of his recovery, but the injury
was such that he died yesterday.—Ciyr
