THE WORK nEronsr. CONGRE S.
Congress assembled Monday, 7th ink.
Beyond the announcement of thedeath
of several members, the customary cer
emonials on such occasions, nothing of
moment has been done. Not much will
ho done, probably, during the first two
weeks of the session.
There is, however, a great work be
fore the Congress now sitting. Tts term
expires at noon of March 4, 1869, and
its successor, though it may convene
immediately thereafter; is fiot likely to
sit long. Among ; ..She_ . matters which
tJiould receive the-earnest attention of
this Congress, the undoubted thievery
of Andrew Johnson's rev'ehue officers
takes the highest rank. SeCond may
be placed the condition of the South ;
and healthy freedom of speech nuclea
tion is al that Is'needed there. And
third, th financial situation„ s . 4_
There are thrlee modes of miring mon
ey to the Treasury. Ist—Let nll offici
als be paid salaries koportioned to the
labor and responsibility impoSed upon
them by their. positions. 2d—s9 order
that no one man shall get enougtlinoit
ey in his hands tO upset his head. 3d
Employ none, but m of unquestioned
competency, and ut4mished integri
ty. Perhaps the last Mode may be said
to cover the whole ground.
There is no question, that we are
aware Of, about the importance of " fit
ness" in a candidate for plebe. No ra
tional business man would employ one
totally ignorant of Book-keeping to
keep the books of his business. •No
Mechanic would employ a . man who
knew nothing about practical mechan- •
les, No intelligent School director will
hire a man or woman to teach a school,
knowing that neither possesies the first
requirements for the station. Yet• no
torious knaves have been picked up be
fore now, by some, political chicanery, '
and placed elbow deep in the treasury..
We pity the ass who does this, and
then makes a fuss because the fellow
steals. Men are seized up by Conven
tions and put in potions which they*
cannot comprehend, or if they could,
would not iiossess honor eribugh to
justly administer. *The

for the - experiment of Self-Government.
Nor do they care for the reputation of
their superiors in place. Nineteen in

for the evil lies in \ requiring as good ev

constitutes one of the most difficult and

the natural way. So long as the Gov
ernment discredits its own paper, even
in. one particular, it is not fair to ex
pect- the realm of Trade to do better.
,The Government requires no gold in its
operations save to meet the interest on
that portion of the debt held, abroad.
R I might begin by requiring fifty per
dentum of all import duties to be paid
in gold, contracting by safeliegfees, un-'
til the distinction now existing between
gold and greenbacks should disappear.
The mania for gambling in gold cannot
be cured in a day ; but when the Gov
ernment teases to sell gold in market
there will be one operator less in Wall
Street. Perhaps it was justifiable to
compete N'vith stock gamblers when it
was ordered. , It is not justifiable now.
The government ought no longer to set
so pernicious an example before the
We are aware that Finance is a diffi

plan for putting greenbacks and Na

without violence, we hope Congress
will take it into consideration and
adopt it. We have ranked this . work
last in the schedule of Congressional
duties, and for the reason that it seems
to us certain that the laws of trade will
do as much as congress can do to bring
the finances back to their normal con
Petitions to the Legislature, asking
that the provisions of the uct prohibit
ing the licensing of the sale of intoxi
cating drinks in Potter bounty, ap
proved April 1866, be extended to Tio
ga County, are already circulating, un
der the auspices of the Temperance or
ganizations of the County. We hold
in this matter that the majority should
rule; and if a majority of the people of
the county ask for prohibition the Leg
islature is bound, in right, to grant it.
That a prohibitory law can be made ef
fective in the State at large we do not
believe; for not a majority of the peo
ple favor it. But it has been made of
fectivo in Potter cclunty for many
years. If it can be xnade a majority
request in Tioga such a law can be
made of great and lasting good. Now
let us have a thorough canvass, with
fair notice to all sides, and be govern
ed by the result. These columns are
open to both sides, but nobody can
have more than half a column a week.
Gen. Cole, who shot Hiscock in Al
bany last winter, has been acquitted on
the ground of insanity. The ease was
this : While Cole was absent in the ar
my Hiscock debauched his wife. Cole
met the seducer in the principal hotel
in Albany and shot him dead, without
ceremony. The jury did not regard
Cole sane at the moment, and gave him
the benefit of the doubt. • .
Well—this is the technical view of the
matter. But why not ' make a clean
breast of the transaction, so precisely like
hundreds ;other, and say that no jury
of deceit men will ever render a ver
dict of guilty against that sort of offen
der? The law provides no adequate
remedy for siich offences as Cole aveng
ed. We have seen, somewhere, a charge
that the shooting was a cowardly act.
What, pray tell, was the act of the se
ducer? Let us hear no more about
cowardice when seducers are punished
as this man was by Cole. Such men
are outlaws, and should die.
correspondent writes : •• We had the pleasure of
being present at the closing exercises of the fall
term, at Mansfield, last Friday evening. The
entertainment was given by one half of tho Senior
class with the assistance of ten of the juniors,
elected by the class. The exercises were a corn- -
plete success. The pieces were recited sufficiently
loud and without hesitancy; some were original,
and reflected-much credit upon those who de
livered them. The senior class has just passed
through a thorough term examination with
credit to its members and teachers. The grist

"In the evening the Normal. Literary Soolety
held its session. Much interest was manifested
in discussing the question; "Resolved, that the
right of suffrage be extended to all without re

in favor of the negative. A new corps of officers'
were installed. The society bids fair to be suc
cessful under the present administration. This
society stands first and best of its character in
the county, being incorporated, and having a
fine library, it is a valuable branch of the insti

the Orphan School. This is under the charge
of Mr. Vine R. Pratt with Miss Sue Preston,
Miss Simpson and Mrs Etz, nesistants. Every
thing bore the appearance of work and good will
between teachers and pupils. We departed
feeling grateful that our State had provided so
good and comfortable homes of instruction for
her orphan children.

The American Cooking Stove
All articles of Value and established repute.
don have their imitations. Manufacturers who
have, not the brains to invent or the enterprise to
establish a reputation for themselves, seek to
appropriate the inventions and reputations of
those who have. The American Cooking Stove,
for instance, has obtained a world-wide repute-
tion. Messrs. Shear, Packard & Co. have spent
seven years in improving and perfecting this
stove, till It is almost perfect as a stove, and
they have spent large amounts in advertising
; and bringing its merits before the people.
IThere have been numerous imitations of in ,and
they have been compelled to bring live suits
against different parties for appropriating their
patented improvements, all of which have resulted
in their favor. The ast phase of these imita
tions is one similar in design and almost an ex
act imitation of the name, only one fetter left out.
These spurious imitations are sought to be
palmed off upon the public as a genuine article.
This is in violation of their rights; and they
have commenced a snit to restrain the sale of
these fraudulent articles; and they propose to
prosecute all infringements and imitations till'
others cease from appropriating and imitating
