to hear the wild stories that are started
• about the action of Gov, Geary in sign
ing the bill changing this judicial lis
t triet. Here is a specimen from the Elk
'county Railroad and Mining Journal :
. " The hill passed both Houses and
. was signed by the Governor within. the
short apace of three hours, no one in
the State dreaming of such a thing but
those concerned in the plot."
One Of our county officials has im
proved on this by stating that Governor
Geary sat up until three o'clock in the
. morning; waiting for tile" bill to -be
,passed so that he could sign it. Now,
this is all pre-rebel talk, and an attempt
to make a little political capital against
- Governor Geary. The bill was pasSed
through both Houses by a -very - heavy
majority, both political parties voting
for it, on the evening of the .15th 'of
March. - It - first passed the Senate, just
before that body adjourned. It then
:4,3nt to the House, where it was passed.
It could not go to the Governor until
the Senate, had been informed of the
action of the House, and the Senate did
hot meet until 10 o'clock next morning /
After the meeting of both Houses, it
was messaged over to the Senate, and
. then taken to the Governor at near 11
o'clock. We know these/ facts, as we
happened. to /30 in the Executive Cham
ber when it was brought in Jfor His Ex
• cellency's signature. Unless there was
some very potent reason, the Governor
would hardly think of refusing to sign
a local bill which had passed by'ao large
a majority:— Williamsport I ulletin.
Hilton Head Island was formerly owned
by General Seabrook, the largest slave
owner in the country, and one of the
very wealthiest men at the South. He
owned twelve hundred slaves. His
plantations were immense in extent;
his income was enormous. The family
consisted of himself, a wife,Ja son ' and
daughter-la-law, and an unmarried son.
-They enjoyed every luxury •, they lived
in grand style ; ,tho sons had been care
fully trained and educated ; the family
knew only the highest society of Europe
and this country. War came ; the
Union forces obtained possession of the
Island;. the Seabrooks lied in terror to
Charleston, leaving all their slaves ex
cept a few body servants, and even Most
of their household property, to the ten

Seabrooks soon found themselves in a
state of destitution in Charleston, The
fall was too great for the old man to bear.
He died within -a few months broken
hearted. The married son joined the
rebel army, and' soon followed his ven
erable father to the grave. The un-'
married' son pin lied along in destitu
tion for some years, ow he lived none
knew, but he is now driver Son one of
the Charleston street ears, under the di -t
rection of a Celtic conductor. He says
be is learning business, is, content to
commence at the foot of the ladder, and
means to work up. Success tb him in
the brave effort ! The venerable moth

•was fragrant with the odor of pine,-
Pine timber was the .i 1 age with men of
capital - and men of n 1 capital. Small
farmers, living on the navigable
streams, caught th infection, and
thought the year lost unless they made
arift down the river. Thus their farms
.were left to suffer wat of tillage, and
many an owner of fifty acres ' round, himself Without po toes enough to
carry his family thro gh.the winter.
The good sense oil the farmers_ has
finally changed prety much all that.
Multiply the numbe of acres ' illed then
by six, and you hay about the number
of acres tilled to-d y. Multiply the
i t
number of cows in Iked then by teu,
and ,you have about, the number that
will be milked in 18p9. The number of
steep kept, though pot so great as three
y rs ago, perhaps, is yet much greater
than it was fifteen Years ago. The val
ue of farms is from 130 to 80 per cent.
higher to-day than it was then. We
speak of , the liiillarms now, where the.
Improvement has been greatest. And
still, the bottom Ands have risen in
value a third, perha s more.
' A grazing collaris ever prosperous'
when men make dairying a business. It
calls for less capital ithan any other bus
iness, returns a greater net profit, and
the capital is idway! available. Butter
and cheese, now ar4eles of export, will
always command high and remunera
tive prices. You cannot overdo the
business. The foreign demand for but
terl.l and cheese is ste dily increasing. It
is a fact that th multiplication of
cheese factories, Joe I ted with judgment,
has been marked by a corresponding
rise in the market price of butter and
cheese. We mean by this to say that
the average price d iring the year; for
those staples, Is be ter, than it was six
years .ago. The 1 arket is steadier.—
And m i en are well paid for these pro-,
ducts. i i Eastern [dries made money
when 'eheese brioi ght only 4,1- cents a
pound. Of course hat price would not
pay well to-day.
We haire no apo ogy to make for so
persistently urgin the importance of
niaking , this a stri tly grazing county.
Good crops of gr hr may be grown
here, especially pon the red shale
i ridges. But Tiog county can never
export wheat. It may grow its own
grain, easily, and t the same time car
ry on its dairies. It should never he
called upon to do More. Hops may tbe
raised with profit, but not on the hu
mid bottoms, nor upon the cold lands
with a clay subsoil. Everything but
butter,, cheese, sock, :wool, and root
crops, should be Incidental, and -not,
staple productions
More cheese factories should be built.
Some of the best grazing townships in
theil county haN i v' all. Chat
ham, for example, has no cheese fac
tory-for the publie, though Mr. Moses
Lee keeps a - large dairy, and makes
much and good cheese. A factory,
cated favorably, wlth regard accom
modating the largTt number o patrons,
would put ten p r cent. of increased
value upon every farm within its range.
There seems to be a difficulty abobt lo
cation. But no 0 eese factory can. be
of mubh use handy to get to
and near sift spring water. There must
be mutual concession for mutual advan
tage. In locating factories= the object
'ought not to be the profit of any one
man, or• :the enhancement of one farm
In particular. Let it be understood,'
that under the operations of the laws
of trade; there can be no forced rise in
values strictly local without an ex
hausting reaction. The true theory is
that benefit must be mutual. We beg
of-farmers-that they will not stand - in
the way of their own advancement.

foregoing must impress every lover of
justice and equity. No man can .give
a valid reason why oue class of citizens
should be denied participation in the
ballot so long as they pay taxes and
tight_our battles. The democratic pol
iticians raise a great outcry against tax
ation without representation. The col
ored people of Pennsylvania pay taxes
on several millions of property. The
_people of Washington, D. C.,
pay thousands of dollars of school tax
es. However, it never, occurred to the
Democracy that there was any injus
tice in taking these thousands and using
them to educate white children, at the
came time forbidding, under severe
penalties, the education of colored
children. Could villainy go farther or
fare better ?
The proposition to take $lO,OOO out of
the State treasury to pay the 27 extra
" help " voted by the Legislature,
ought to fail. We hear that enough
democrat'i are secured 'to vote for the
propositions and defeat , the decenter
Republicans and Democrats who oppose
it. If this be so, we appeal to Gov.
Geary to veto the bill when it reaches
him. It is about time that this abuse,
now half a century old, had its tongue
plucked out by its roots and so render
ed mute. ,We object_ to turning the
public treasury into a great charity
fund for the benefit of a set of scamps
who ought to be sawing wood at fifty
cents a cord.
We lave no objection to the employ
ment of enough help to forward the
business of the Legislature. But these
27 patriots . have done nothing; many
of them, it is charged, .having long ago
left Harrisburg for the cheaper living
at home. Not a dollar for tribute.' •
As there appears to be an unpardona
ble ignorance among men who ought to
know better touching the attempt to
unseat Judge Wilmot in 1868, we may
state that the chief argument urging
his unseating was that he had soiled the
ermine by mixing in the dirty pool of
.There was no fight made up
on Judge Wilmot by the bar of his dis
trict, unless a mere fragment, and a
partisan fragment of the bar at that,
may be dignified with the name of the
Ear of that District. The sum total of
the beginning pf that raid Jupon Wil
mot was Democratic, and in revenge
for political action. Just turn over any
Democratic newspaper of that period,
and you will find that the attack upon
Wilmot was purely and simply politi
cal in its inception. Again, but for the
sturdy opposition of the Republican
au. - ind_cpendent press of the State, ad
ded to the danger of establishing a mis
chievous precedent—a fact which the
calmer leaders of the Democracy urged
with manly vigor, Judge Wilmot would
have been unseated by a Democratic
Legislature. We repeat, no Democratic
journal is privileged to complain of the
unseating of Judge Gamble.

HAVING obtained the'ageney from the mss.
nfactnrers of the nbove named instrument'
we have the facilities for furnishing them at pri
ces to compare favorably with those of dealers
in either the same or other reed instruments.
Their reputation is such that 'scarcely anything
need be said regarding their being desirable,
having been awarded premiums and medals at
the principal Fairs and Institutes, both in this
and foreign countries. Many fine modern im
provements, which are so desirable in all good
reed instruments, aro owned and retained for
their exclusive use by the manufacturers of
these instruments. Hence it is, while they elim
strength and dnribility, together with volume
and quality of tone equal to any, they excel al
other reed instruments, in the variety mad: com
bination of tones which can be produced.l
and other organizations, wishing to obtain
read instrument, can be suited as regards I
