We are not ditch given to forecasting
the political'futnre for the edificatioit of
our '.residers ; nor are we particularly
fond of putting aside theivork which
pertziins to the present;to take up that
which pertains to the future. But sev-'
cral of our cotemporaries Wave
begun to agitate - the subject of the 'Fen
atorial succession in 1870 ; and as . :this
early declaration of preference seems to
be in ordcr; we juisien to declare our
own, and to assign our reasons therefor.
A corresponthe of the }larrisburg
Telegraph urgently recommends the
preferment of Hon. George Landon, at
present State' Senator from the Brad
ford district. We have hnig and favor
'ably known Mr. Landon as one of the•
best intellects in the State,.as well as a
faithful and - a neon) prom isinrltepUbl i:-
can. He would adorn anyi 'tation in
the gift of - the people. The fact that he
is a Northern Tier man..will give him
-strength in, the State; TI if a-North
ern,Tier man were coned , ed, We should
press his claiths vigorously. But the
fact . that [Philadelphia .is among the
strongest of Republieau strongholds.,
as well as that she; has not furnished'a
Senator in . many years, will properly
have much influence in the location of
the successor of Mr. Buekalew. '
Onr-preference is born of a desire to
bestow the position npou the man who
has earned substantial recognition and
rAvard tattle hands of the loyal' people
of the whole Country. There' is one.
man who:ahoy° all others, has earned
this recognition, by great labors in the
past and in the present. That man is
JOHN W. F'o - r
eNty, widely known as
one . oT the two foremost , journalists in
Americo., and one of- the' moSt indefati
gablt4 teachers in' the school of progress
ive politics. .
Col. Forney is a repres,entative man.
A Pennsylvanian by birth' and educa
tion, he is thoroughly identified with'
her political history and material inter
ests, yet so broad in his comprehension
of public policy as to ber,costriopolitan.
Stich men belong to the . lrholc country,
.and exhibit a statesmanship which is
not bounded by State lines... His daring
was exeMplified in his dissent from the
policy of
,the: administration of James,
-Buchanan—a man whom-he had ~by su
perior generalship placed in' power—
in the* expression of which he pitted
himself, single-handed, against the or
ganized legions of the Slave Power, and
triumpheddtb-xough such heroic strug
gl, s as would seem ineredible• if faith

wing of tbq Democratic party waS de

not generally known that Col. Forney
was a- thorough hater of slaVery long be
fore' the eventuation of the war, but
such is the Tad. -He was no stidden
convert to anti-slavery. Mingling free-'ly with Southern leaders 'he, early saw
the threatening danger, and in exact
ing a Pledge of justice to Kansas from
Buchanan r . he believed the machina
tions of the Oliga:relis to be foiled: The.
violation of that pledge, the establish
ment of the Press, and the overthrew
of the politiet&rowerof the South are
rmatters,of "history. ,1 .
Wien Abraham Lincoln took the
executive Utah' Col. Forney became
one of the most zealouS supporters of
his Administration, urging the import
ance of

chinations of the traitors might be foil

work, and at once conceived and enter

advocacy of universal Freedom, "n the
very - hot-bed of treason. The C 7/, oniele
was a success from the start, and ear

who endured the, discomforts of . the

It. is not too much to say that the Press

and poinfing \ g° soldier and statesman
to the glorious triumph which awaited

nty The news lashed the l'ioga public
into such a storm of indignation as we
have 'seldom witnessed. • The dissatis
faction is universal, without distinction
of party. d •
A brief history of the matter may
not be out of place. After the rejection
of John R."Cam,pbell, Col. N: A. Elliott,
of this - County, was noninated . to' the
Senate. His Confirmation would have
given as much (probably more) satisfae-
Mon to the people of this county, as that
of any man in of ,the ranks - 4,f the
Democratic party. He was rejected. -7-
Mt% Hepburn McClure, of
‘ Lycoming,
was also nominated, and rejected. Mr.
McClure was ha Unobjectionable as any
pilau of his party south of the moun
tains.. Then came the nomination and
confirmation of Mr. Guernsey, and fol
lowing it the indignation of the p' ale
without distinction of party: e • ut
repeat-the popular verdict wh -la we pky
than was an appointment no ht ibe
made: We shall not'say more than that
his fellow-partizans are, as greatly out
raged by it as any body;, and What
strongerianguage of censure than this
can we employ?'
The question now is what was our'
Congressman, Mr. Wilson, about that
this confirmation was permitted? The
nomination ho • could not contfol f . It
was not possible-to get a radical Repub
lican nominated. But unlessaffairs ate
entirely changed in the Senate, he
could have controlled the confirmation.
The people lay the responsibility at his
door; an 'thereit must lie until he can
show that he did his utmost to com
pass the rejection of the nomination.-"---
We confess to an afflictive disapPiiint
ment in the result. It was too sudden
I to be believed. -When the news of the
nomination reached us we could but
laugh at ,the absurdity of the thing,
'being rcasonably.positive that it would
be rejected._ The public now await Air.
Wilson's explanation. As to justifica
tion, that is hardly possible: No man
can justify the appointment of an open
and boasting traitor to the government
during the' war; but add to this , the
i thargesTreely preferl•ed against, the apt
pointee in every community' where he
is known a: zz~ explicable.

Though pot unlooked for, this upset
do:vl s not. please us. It will please every
rebekin the South, and will be hailed
as theVOkining of a reaction which is to
restore.thb South to her 'old supreinacy
in the nation. In this, rebels, north

not affect the supremacy of Republican

However, the Copperheads have not
carried,a Northern State in many years,
and their' comments on election news
have been so dolorous that this wilP
constitute quite an era in the feeble ex

plenty of big letters will be used fn the

tuneful voice, again, and hear the tri

mire of defeat so long, that we doubt if
the solitary ray of sunshine from Con

him to elevate it victoriously.

The Grand Jury of Chemung County
(have indicted Brink, Manager of the

indictment is for a violation of the law
prohibiting lotteries. • ,
We know 'nothing of this particular
GifeConcern, and presume that neither
of the publishers indicted are knowing
ly guilty. But it is time thatthis popu
lar mode of swindlitg the _unwary was
abolished. Bad schemes often are made
to hang upon a good object,und the safe
way is to refuse to advertise for any gift
concern. The Editor of the Advertiser
announces that legal advertisements
wilt still be inserted at usual rates, and
illegal ones will not be published at any

By a recent decision of the Supreme
Court of Pennsylvania, which we find
quoted in the-West Chester Record, it
was held - to be very important , that in
the acknowledgment of deeds by mar
ried persons the wife shall be examined
separately from the,husband. The ease
decided was that of McCandless vs. En
gle, and the'points settled by the Court
were as tol lows :
1. When fraud or duress has been
practiced in obtaining awife's acknowl
edgment to a deed, and the knowledge
of it, or such. circumstances ag would
lead to inquiry has been, brought home
to the grantee, it will avoid the acknowl
2. Less than actual. duress 'will avoid
the acknowledgment of a. wife, if it be
known to the party claiming through
it,, or when he ought to have inquired
for,' defences, and did not, as in the case
of taking an assignment of a mortgage.
3. The acknowledgement will be
avoided,if the wife made It under moral
constraint—that is by th'leats, persecu
tidn and harshness , of her husband to
force her to set aside her own free wilpl
and comply willingly with his wishes'.
4. The acknowledgment of the .wife
must be taken out of the presence ofthc
husband, where he cannot see or hear
any indication of unwillin g ness on her
part to excuse or ackiViwledge the. in
strument. Otherwiseishe has no oppor
tunity to escape coercion.
5. In regard % • the obligation to in
quire -if anything to
an acknowledgment, the rules different
in the case of conveyance of real estate,
and the assignment of a mortgage, which
is but a security for money.
Tizi CENTAL SYSTEM, or the buying
and selling of grain by the hundred
pounds, ' went into operation in the
principal cities of; the country . Qn the
Ist of March, and doubtless the "cental,"
or 100 pounds, will soon ,become the
standard of grain pleasure in all the
States. The new/ method will produce
some confusion at first. but if we re
member that the weight of a bushel of
wheat-is generally 60 pounds, of a bush
el of corn or rye each 56 pounds, barley
48, and oats 32 pounds, it is veDy easy
to change from bushels - to- centals, and
to-estimate the price of grain by, the
latter .standard. The following table
shows the amount of grain, old measure,
that is required to make a cental
Wheat-1 bushel and 40 pounds, or
1 2-3 bushels. '
Corn-1 bushel and 44 pounds, or 111
14 bushels.
Rye-1 bushel and 44 pounds,,or 111
14 bushels. . . .
Braley-2 bushels and ,4 pounds, or 2
1-24 bushels; -
Oats-3 bushels and ti pounds, or 3 1-8
bushels. •
Thus in estimating, the value of wheat
in centals, that has been Atated in bush-
Os, add to the price of one bushel - two
, lirds•of itself; for corn 'and rye, add
e even fourteenths; for barley, multi
ly the price per bushel by two and
one twenty-fourth ; and for o ats by
three and one-eiglip.
DEATH OF A MISER. —A shorttim e since
an old man died in this city 1 , 110 was
known as a miser. He was g r enerally
dressed in rags, his clothes being mend,.
ed With pack thread, or anything else
he could get. About three years befdre
his death he employed Mr. Joseph Flan
igan to build in the Catholic cemetery
of this city, an immense stone vault,
several feet in thickness, of solid gran
ite—the stones being . dovetailed, into
each other. :We are•anformed that it
had secret doors on the inside. He was
constantly having it altered and it was
not finished at the time of his death.
He represented that he had no wifbor
family; and the general impression is; he intended to hide his 'wealth
which was some $BOO in specie, be buried
with it, so that.none would ever know
where his money was. But he died
too suddenly to carry out his purpose;
and the money - was fouhd in his house;
and his wife and family, whom it is sup
posed be had deserted, to save• the ex
pense of keeping them, came on /to claim
his property. The huge vault f a mon-,
ument of his folly and his averice, re
mains in the Catholic cemetery, an ob
ject of curiosity to all who visit it.—

night o M"riday, a Small house at Gib
son, occupied by John Phenas was con
sumed by fire and four persons perished
in the flames, viz : 'Mr. Phenas, and
his two sons aged sixteen and nineteen,
and his grand-danghter, aged seven or
eight years. Mr. P. wasan old resident
of the town, and owing to his ill health
and poverty the family had largely sub
sisted on charity for a number of years.
The house vas a small, building near
the tow path, a few rods east of the
highway bridge.. The fire is supposed
to have caught froin a broken stove

had been misphiced, and thus set firo to
