he assented •to Guile's machine doing
the work. The machine was brought
tSti Monday of last Week, and Guile
came with it to. set the machine and
start it aright, hen he intended to
leave. The threshing had commenced
when - Mr. Lewis approached the barn
with a shot-gun, loaded with .bullet
and buck-shot, in hand, leveled.nt his
intended victim, and'pulled the trigger.
Fortunately the gun missed fire, or Mr
Guile would have been killed on th ,
spot, a. 9 be was , within close range.—
"Mr, , LeWis proCeeded very deliberately
to iprime his gun anew and put on a
new oar, but by this time friends of the
parties interfered and put an end to the
shooting for the present. Mr. Lewis

there was none when I commenced

We call attention to the proclamation
of Gov. Geary, • declaring the paymont
by the commissioners of the Sinking
Fund, for the year ending 30th Novem
ber, 1869, of $1,725,597 97 interest, add
$302,762 09 principal of the public debt.
Thus we see that under wise Republi
can management of the finance, the
debt is gradually being reduced. Great
credit is due to the Financial officers of
the State for the faithful , manner in
which they , have discharged their duty.

The year 1864 constitutes the era of a

leeaeon, equal partner with conscien
tious conviction. The dry details o
political economy were borne to the rear
of the mustering army of progress.—
The old issues --Bank, Tariff,, Internal
Improvement—dried up.
In the early morning of this revolu-•
tion-1854—THE AGITATOR was estab
lished. Thu suggestion cane from
sponsors were BAcHE and W. W.
tic,DouGALL. The firm of Bailey & Cobb
undertook the publication,' and the
writer hereof was the editor. The
material and goodwill of the WelMoro
4fivertiger, then published .by WM. D.
ItAiLEY, were purchased for the sum of
$B5O, and with this Tun AGITATOR
Started. The type used was long prim
ir and hreVier ; size of sheet, 24x34 ; eir
'4sulation 850, half of it paying, perhaps.
The regular advertising patronage was
worth about $3OO a year, and the job-
bing as much more.
Dec. 31, 1854, Mr. Bailey retired from
the firm, and Mr. DAVID STURROCK
came in. . The price of the paper was
reduced from $1,50 to $1 per annum,
Cash down. This cut down the pireula
tion to 350; but before the end of the
year. 1855 was ended the circulation bad
reached'9oo ; and by the middle of 1856
It had gone above 1000. At that time
country papers with 1000 cash subscrib
ers were not common . In fact, we sup-
Ipose that no county paper in Northern
Pennsylvania had so large a circulation.
From this time to 1858 the circulation
varied, once touching 1200, but averag
ing 950 ; In 1857 Mr. Sturroek retired
from the firm of Cobb, Sturrock Co.,
and the writer took, sole charge, retain
ing it until Jan. 1, 1859, when" the ea
tahliehment passed into the buds of
.1113:011 YOUN6 at a small advanc upon
the original cost in 1854. Mr. Young
proeurell new type for the paper, so that
it started out in its firth year with as
handsome a face as tiny of its content.
Up ‘to'' this time root much attention
had been given to the local department
of the paper. Mr. Young at once made
a change in that respect, and the local
value of the pr was thereby greatly
increased. Thereat war soon arrived,
and the columns of the Auinvi.Toß gave
to the public the experience of eyewit.:
ness on the field and in, camp. In. fact
the paper during that stormy time con
stituted a graphic history of events.
In January, 1863, the writer once
more became possessed of the material
Ahd goodwill of the estabishment, Mr.
YOMig,retiring. But little addition had
been inlkie to material and ilitures.—

the year 1804 came in, the baiiinge sheet
of the concerti showed a deficit be-over

circulation increased. - ,A.cylinder press
was purchased, and - by July, 1864, the

H. COI3B retiring from the 'AGITATOR
Will, no doubt be greatly regretted by
its readers as well as by ourselves,
though' his retirement has been con
templated for more than a year. With
this number then, and by mutual con
sent of all parties, Mr. Cobb passes the
pen (editorial) and his one-half interest
in the AGITATOR to the undersigned;
who, in assuming the entire control of
the. establishment do not propose to
wade through a long article of pledges
and promises of the future coursa of
the papek, but will simply say—that we
intend to practice •what we preach—
" Ihr t mid let live, PAY and be PAW."
Ito poritle,al conduct will bOin the fu
ture fist in the past—REPUBLICAN, pro
found and unshaken. In
feat, it will adhere to those principles
because we believe them to be right.—
Xll " wire-pullers," " cliques," or
"wolfish politicians" must take a back
seat, while we pursue the even tenor
of our way defending the right, , and
opposing the wrong. In short, We shall
spare - -no labor or , expense in making
the AGITATOR acceptable to its readers,
and shall, also aisadd such facilities' to the
establishment' necessary to keep pace
with our rapidly growing village. Be
lieving that a lively paper, good work,
promptness and fair dealing Is the key
to success--sire start out with very flat
tering encouragements for the future.

any neighborhood can be found whore well known
cases of diseased lungs, which had baffled the efforts of
the,most skillful end atperleirsod doctors have . been
completely cured by it. 'Theta) result; are the most
convincing proofs of the superior curative provertios of
this preparation; and to them the authors point with
peculiar 'satisfaction. Whiten is most powerful against
