the rocky bottom of the ;daft, and the
luiles outside the centre of the shaft,
with nothing to hold on, by but the sin-e

. Men 'are, in dein i-dark n ess. The timber,
had been landed in its place, and as one

In his fall he caught the man next, and
he also followed, catching the last man,

He told him to swing himself, and %O l eo
he could feel the timber with his feet to

swinging he was enabled to

ilfter some further time to !,et up oil the

The Pittsburg Gcizetto, ,pne.* the
ablest pipers in thelSTerth, has enlargiri
its borders, being - now ' print b ed On the

to:tarry three Northern States this fall,
but to hear the noise theyl make, one
would suppose that. they had swept the
TEI7iI CALL L i iie LABOR. -
Nal being a tbeelegian, we -can not
determine as to , whether rations, like
individuals, are t'saved by: grace," of
by some other and nof.less — effective
Means. In our judgment' they are not
4aved by grace, but rather by faith, as
strong and as deep as the aggregate vir
tue of the people. Faith, which em
bodies itself in works, is the only in
strumentality by which, the free insti
tutionsuf _this country can be preserved
and perpetuated. To live and grow, a
nation must take root in the hearts of
the masses composing it. Nations do
not live by passive assent, but by active
and untiring strug7,le.
We are not of those Who believe that,
a single swallow makesk it summer. N 6
more do we accept the reverse in New
York and Pennsylvania as a condom
aation of the principles . of. the Repub-
Heim party. On the ontrary, we, re
gard 'these reverses- as a part of the
varying fortunes of We war Waged by
Right against Wrongi In no struggle
is victory constant. ,t'he omnipotence
of Right is not exhibited locally, or in
any particular -period of history. Its
power is only known by weighing the ,
'aggregate results of all lime. ,Thus
dewing it, it is seen that 12,1frht has
lwaten 'Wrong back, slowly hut surely,
.a the gi • - , 1 average. of Time.
For th..- o and other. reasons, •ve have
never bt -edismayed'by temporary de

:.onally, victory before reverse, and re
Irard the dominance of Rebellion, as
shown iu the results of the elections in
this States and inNew York, with re
gret., As to bitter, recriminations we
shall-not indulge in them. 'The well- i

1,p.v0 triumphed in : - “..y "..coi:hern
. - J tate. It may be eta,ted az, an im oLt:o
-'vertible fact that hostility to the Ex
cise law gave the Coppe:theads many
thousands of their majority in the
•Stitte of Nevi' York. The proof of thi,
will be found in an early attempt to
repeal the law when the Legislature of
....that State shall sit. Certainly negro
PSuffrage did not defeat anybody in that
State, for there, now, and for many
years, the negro has voted. Not only
this, but the ballot was put in his hands
by a Democratic legislature, , approved
by a Democratic Governor. Nor do we
suppose that, if they had the power,
the leaders of that party in New York
would 'disfranchise the blacks inat
State. Farther than this,. we have of
the slightest idea that the leader •of
that party iu the North care a fig about
the question of suffrage , asst relatEp to
the negro, except in so far as it doeS not
accord with their plarA to suffer the
rebel States to . be reconstructed by the
loyalists. The Democratic leaders,
everywhere, sympathize with the "lost'
cause," as it is called ; sympathize with
the South and its rebellion, as against
the North and equal 'rights ; and' it is
`against this threatening danger of re
lapse into anarchy that the American
people must arise:and do battle.
Now, as' ever, undoubtedly some
men, impatient of cheeks and resting
too much upon the present, will sit
down dismayed. Truly we have seen
no such men as yet; but it would be
little less than miraculous if such , men,
should not be found in the Republican
party as in every other organization.—
tieh men lean too much upon the pres
ent and dwell too much within them

The campaign of 1868 is likely to be
gin early. Indeed, it may truly be said
to have opened. The Republicans are

day last Porter M. Skinner and David
Cowan were out on the mountain,afeW
miles from Fannettsburg, this co u nty,
looking after cattle, when they discov
ered three bears mono tree. the beam
attempted to escape • and as the party
had neither guns or dogs were preven
ted from doing so by the free use of
clubs and stones. One of the party
then stood sentinel, while the other
went some two miles for a gun. The
first one shot at was wounded and fell
to the ground, but not so badly htirt;
but that_he was able to show fight.—
After a severe.encoUnter, however, they
succeeded in dispatching him with
their clubs. The second one they shot
dead, while the third ono made his es
cape. The, gentlemen were uninjured.
This is altogether the tallest bear hunt
of the Season. Bears appear to be un
