UNION S. S. PIC-NlC.—The most no
table social gathering of the season took place in
&Hanger's Grove, Charleston, Saturday Aug. 22.
The Charleston Sunday Schools and three of the
Wellsboro schools united in it pie-nic,. and the
occasion will not soon be forgotten. Upward of
1000 persons were on the ground. There was an
abundance of provisions, plenty of amusement
for the little folks,
,the best of order prevailed
threpghout, and not n thing occurred to mar the
pleauro of the day. The crowd was addressed
by Tter. 0. L. Gibson, Messrs. W. H. Smith, J.B.

RATTLESNAKES. A correspondent.
writes us from Lamb's Creek tells a big snake
story, or,ra,hor, several snake stories. On the
19th, Mr. Pittsley killed two, the largest meas
uring feet bi inches. A week previous Mr.
Charles Day followed a sna;ke trail- from the
road to the woods and killed the snake. Tho
next day another was killed near the same spot.
In the afternoon a party set out to find the den,
long known to be somewhere in that vicinity.
About a quarter of a mile from the road .they
came to a ledge of roan . , and found • the rattle
snake odor • very strong. Filling a suspicious
crevice with powdersthey fired the trail, when an
immense development took place in the snake
line. The boys went at it, and in a ,short time
killed one hundred and I/ally-est:en rattlesnakes,
the largest measuring 4 feet S inches, and the
smallest 14 inches. Mr. 11. E. Cooper killed a
large snake in his cellar. Mr. lU. Land, had a
valuable mare bitten by a Coppnrheitil, Ctrs bite
proving fatal. Our correspondent rejoices that
the copperheads are not very plenty os tualtes,
and hopes that the other sort may disappear
after November. So mote it'bo.

' A Concert was held at the Baptist Church on
Friday, the 14th inst., which more than answered
the expectations of its patrons, inasmuch as the
preparations made by the performers, and the
decorations so neatly arranged, reflected the
hightest credit on the small town of Bless. The
Concert consisted of vocal and instrumental
music. The instruments used were the •Organ,
Piano, Violin and Saxhorn. The overture,, ar
ranged expresSly fo ethe occasion by our worthy
Friend Prof. Hoyt, j Mansfield, was. a decided
success. Miss.-E. S..ttuck, Piano, IVr. 3. Brad

J. Bradbury (Tenor), Mr. Peres Bonney (bass),
accompanied by the organ, Miss Mary Boniloy,
violin Mr. Copping. Mrs. G. Lewis sang the
Solo (What shall be my angel name?) in an able
manner. Tho pathetic piece entitled "Give , my
love to Mother' was effectively rendered by Miss.
Bell Gaylord. Miss-Mary Walker's part in the
Quartette "Beautiful Hill," reflected great credit
upon her. But the Comic 'Solo, 'Sting by Mr.
Erwin, sustained by the Sompany in full Chorus,
called "Jolly Days" received unbounded ap
plause. The selections from the Opera of "Mar
tha" executed by Miss E. Shattuck (Piano), and
Mr. Capping (Violin),l was perfectly magnificent.
In fact the performano'c was such that the audi
ence were-deterinined to have a repetition of it
which was announced to take place on the 18th,
inst. Mr. it. P. Erwin is entitled to the thnhks
of the community for his untiring efforts in ad

MCPHERSON'S HAND-300K. OF POLI

House of Representatives, Washington, has issued
his hand-book of politics for 1868. ' It is a 'com
plete repertory of political knowledge, perfectly
,imparetal, and very minute.
Every official utterance bearing upon the ques
tions which enter into the dampaign is here pre
sented. The statistics of national finance are
compiled from the official reports, and the several
acts of Congress touching taxation and recon
struction are here reproduced. Mr. McPherson
is the most eminent statistician and collator in
America and his works are acknowledged au

GossiP.—The Devil is represented in
Seripture as one "going about as a roaring lion."
On the ether hand, the Almighty is likened to "a
still, small voice." The
,prophet heard a great
wind pass by, and WO assured that the Lord
was not in the a iud. Ile hoard and beheld a
fearful war of the elements, and was assured
that the Lord was not in that terrible din. IC Is
well to iecolleet this fact when you estimate men.
A brass kettle will, when beaten with a hammer,
drown the shock of forty sledge-hammers upon a
ton lump of pure gold. And most people would
prefer the gold to the brass kettle. Much speech
on small Liceasions, and upon no occasion, is the
sign of ignorance and folly. The man may not
be an idiot by nature, but he is what the Yankees
call slack-baked." Such a man is not an cuss,"
hut something less. Ile cannot be called a "hum
bug "beeause,he deceives nobody with fair com
mon sense. A man may be compared to a glass
tumbler. Fill it to the bi ) ina with water, and
tap it with a table-knife, and it gives out but
little sound. Half full it rings louder. Quarter
full it rings louder still. Empty, it ,jingles the
nerves out of tune
—There it a remedy fur the everlasting racket
made by the sort of mon above alluded to. Go to
the tinner and order a rattle-box which can be
carried in the pocket. NVhen you, meet a brass
ltCttle man who insists upon foreing you to listen
to his twaddle, listen if you have time, with' duo
patience. When he stops from exhhitstion,' pro
duce your rattle-box and shako it. vigorously for
three Minutes. By that time you will have re
plied full i r to his volley of small shot. If he do
not take 4he hint then you may know that 1M is
an idiot. tut if he take the gentle hint thus
impat tet , write down in your hOolts that there is
hope fur that man,
