EDITORS TIMES copy of the
Adrian Journal, _bearing date April.
15th, 1870, is before me, containing a
scurrilous article headed "The day we
Celebrate," an article hi tended to cast
a slur on the men who ,participated in
said celebration.' ' The authorship of
such an article would mantle with
shame the countenance of any man
deserving the proud title of an "Amer'
'learCeitizenunless it was one so long
steeped in the unholy vices - of DemOc- ,
i•ti . cy,' as to be utterly oblivous to all
Ifeelings i of decency. As a colored citi
zen or the United States ask leaf
through your columns to answer
slur said article attempts to put upon
my race. I see by reference to , the col;
umns of the Jonrnal, that J. Cross' is
the: proprietor and A. p., Miller the
local editor of the Jounerd. These
,dividuals'are doubtless DeMearats, dyed
lin the wool, but they are not men, pure
hearted,-noble minded, generous Inca,
capable of rising.for one moment above
the- petty considerations of party, or
they would not at a time when six
pillions of their countrymen were re
: joking over the 'final guarantee of their
•liberties, have per mit I oil such an article
to have appeared in their columns. It
seems strange the Demociatic
and editors, do not comprehilid the
fact, that both slavery and - Chief Jus

men have ; rights which, even Demo
crats—however white the color of their
skin—are houtid to respeet. hat a
mighty revolution ten ',seals .have
wrought ! A revolution so gigantic, so
sudden, amtyet Ho complete, that - the
human mind (much less the Democrat
ic mind) falls to comprehend it. The
first gun that boomed over the waters of
Charleston harbor, meant something
more•than civil war.- For it said to the
black man "look up from thy Soil, and
'know thyself a mini.
'That shot tired by Democratic hands,
caused millions of whites to trembW
with anxiety and fear, but to the black
man, it was an anthem of joy s , herald
ing the dawn of the long looked for day
of deliverance. - And now while the
echo of that. gun is ringing in our eats,
the last vestige of human slavery is
swept away, and every A mei lean citi
zen is guaranteed full political rights,
without regard to color or previous con
dition. Yet Deinoeim cy, elitigiog to

that, it is peculiarly adapted to make
the perfect rail, it having the great ad-
vantage over the Bessemer steel rail
that this rail can be re-worked, whilst
the Befolemer rail cannot. This„steel,

their homes, leaving most of their lead

Grant, published last'week..
We have not taken the pains to read
the full details of, this foolish enterprise.
It is a good subject for ridicule; but
there are some ardent patriots engaged
in it ; and, for all the impracticability
of the project, we can but admire the,
exhibition of that patriotic spirit which
impels them to engage so earnestly in
such a futile undertaking.
Sometime since, we suggested the
propriety of their marching to the as
sistance of the Red River' insurrection

vice, they have made a-, general attack
along the Whole line, and have been'
driven back in confusion from the
bloody field. How numerous are the
killed and wounded, we are unable to
say. suffices that their army has
been spattered, and that the "'lrish Re
public}' is, for the time being, a relic of
the past. How soon a new election Will
be held to cut a new deal for the Spoils,
made up of the wages of servant girls
and superstitious men, we are unable
to say. Soon enough, no doubt. Would
it better now, for our adopted cit
izens to lay down the hatchet, beat their
swords into plowshares, and sit quietly
beneath the peaceful shade of the tree
of that liberty which is broad and deep
enough for all the nations of the world ?

_The reasons are, that political
parties are a necessity in the land ; and
other great. interests, which more im
mediately touch the pockets of men,
must shape the course of parties. It
would not be well, at this time ; to give
way to the desire of many good men
'and women to make temperance the

they may not be of so vital consequence

Evils are constantly growing up in
the moral world, and ever demanding
the efforts of good and virtuous—that is,
strong, earnest men anti women, to re
sist and suppress them.l i )To make laws
effectual in the suppression of evils,
they must be sanctioned by the consent
of the Masses,' compriSing the people
who are to obey them : To work re
form in morals, is to prepare mankind
in their hearts beforehand; and then it
Will not be necessary to.: advocate the
passagl of laws which 'their own feel
ings and judgment endorse. This, in
our view, is the great work `which lies
before the reformers and philanthro
pists of our time. Conquerin the heart,
and the conquest will he lasting. It is
a selfish principle, after all,' which con
trols all the nets of men.' Even the
clar4tian expects reward, while ho or
she may suffer and endure every hard
ship to gain it. ;We do good to others;
because, perhaps, we think it a duty;
and in all, our lives, we may not be able
to sacrifice too much for those we love
yet is there . an inward satisfaction in
it all, which moves the hidden smings
of action in our hearts. Virtue brings
her own reward in all things : crime
and wrong their infallible punishment.
Teach men this lesson, and they will
follow the precepts of the, perfect LaW
giver ; not driven on by compulsion,
but led on by charity, sustained by love,
and elated with hope. More than the
stern compulsion of law, is the divine
attraction of the rule of a perfect life ;-
and, while we may need, in our impet
uous moments, the restraint of a law
made by us in our tender and pure
hours, to keep us from the errors which
sometimes overtake the best and the
most faithful, no law of force will pro
duce so lasting reform as the gentle per
suasion which teaches men to do right,
becaule it is best for all.
Once for all, let it be understood that
the Aniwergn considers temperance
purely a moral, not a political, question.
We bave no authority to commit the
Republican party on this issue; nor
oh? We seek to do it. We believe the

They are the only mediums through
which we are able to bring about re;

must take -no more advanced position
than the forces at our command enable
us to maintain. We may recruit, build
up and strengthen the army; and when
the forces are adequate to assure suc

never hazard all in one battle, when de-,

ciples. ,
The Washington correspondent of
the Philadelphia _Evening Star, gossip
ping of political matters puts in a word
for the Northern Tier, and mentions
Hon. Wm. H. Armstrong as a probable
candidate for Governor. The Star says:
One would think from the frequency of alto
shin -thereto, by prominent Pennsylvanians here,
that the election for Governor occurs this fall in
stead of next. A bunch of politicians, gathered
about a bar—you'll always find them there, Penn
sylvaniani, I mean—and the subject discussed hi
en!. next probable Governor. I have been to
some pains to gather the sentiments of the peo
ple from the whole State, and it seems to me the
choice will be made from the northern rer of
counties—the " black'district," as it is called.—
No Governor has been taken from tho northern
part of the State within the memory of man.—
David Wilmot was once nominated, but it was at
a time when there was no hope of success;
Now, when the Republicans are sure of elect
ing their candidate, the North demands that her
claims shall be recognized; and as she contrib•
utes more largely to the success of the Republi
can ticket than any other part, and gives a ma
jority that can be counted on every time, it is not
improbable that she will succeed. Sho will at all
events make a good fight for it: As to the can
didates, several aro named, but the strength seems
to bo centering on Wm. 11. Armstrong, the pros
, ant Congressman from tho Williamsport district.
He has taken a prominent position among the
strong men in CongreSs, and has for years stood
as a prominent lawyer in. nil the State courts,
and served several terms In the State Legislature!
with great credit..
Ile has all the elements of a popular Governor,
—wealth, social position, a powerful mind, large
experience, agreeable manners, and moral firm
ness and habits beyond suspicion. Ho is ono of
the most acSomplished gentlemen in Congress,
and is known' to bo one of the most intimate with
the government officials.
May 20.—1 n the House, the Northeyn

was taken up, very fully discussed, but

force the Fifteenth Amendment was

tiire. The Legislative Appropriation
bill was passed by the Senate.
May 3l.—The President signed the
Fifteenth Amendment and the Pacific
railroad bills. In the House, the ship
ping bill waS discussed, and finally re
ferred back to the committee. The Tax
bill was discussed, Gen. Butler making
a powerful speech in favor of simplify
ing the whole system. --
June I.—ln the Senate, the bill to
change the judicial circuits was passed.
The House Committee on Appropria
tions began the consideration of the
Senate amendments to the Appropria
tion bill. There are 258 amendments
in I'll. It is thought those increasing
the salaries of United States Judges will
'not pass. It is claimed that the incressA
propo'sed would make an additional ex-'
pense of $300,000. It, is hoped also that
the appropriation of'. $1,000,000 fora new
State Department and to extend the
capitol grounds, will be disagreed to.
The income tax was discussed.
The bill to enforce the Fifteenth
.Amendment has become a law. It is
designed to secure to the newly enfran
chised blacks the right to exercise the
elective franchise, and provides penal
ties for certain acts, tending to hinder
them in such exercise, and also to main
tain the general purity of the ballot
box, by punishing the crime lately so
common in the large cities,
,known as
" repeating." Vagabond characters in
the low centers of great cities vote as
often in a day as they call get pay for
doing the corrupt work ; and they do it
liefiply. Fraudulent registration pre
pares the way. So common has this
practice become, that an election is a
mere farce, where the base practice pre
vails. The cheat saps the very founda
tion of our form of government. The
great prevalence of this system of frauds
in election, calls loudly fon' the estab
lishment of a moral qualification of suf
frage. No man, wanting in the first
principles of morality and manly vir
tue, is fit to exorcise so sacred a right.
Not merely so because suchmen are in
competent, by reason of their debased
nature, to exercise this privilege intel
ligently, but because their want of in
tegrity and moral principle puts them
in the market, to be bought with mo
ney, and thereby makes it possible that
the vote of the best citizen may be can
celled for a omall pecuniary considera
It remains to be ,seen whether any
such law as this can be enforced in the
localities where the practice most pre
vails. To make it less liable to be de
feated by foOe of the evil intended to
bo remedied,t-jurisdiction is given to the
United States Courts, in all such cases.
Yot there is so much of corruption and
intimidation in such - localities, that its
strict enforcement- will be a matter of
gceat difficulty.

and growing reduction of the debt, is

[For the Agibitorj
Having been appointed an Assistant
Marshal for taking the ninth census; in
the following districts, to wit : Elkland,
Knoxville and Westfield boroughs ;
Nels 4, Farmington, Chatham, Cly
mer, Osceola, Deerfield, Brookfield and
Westfield townships ; it may be well,
through our county papers, to explain
and define some of the dutieS of, not
f t
only the patty taking the cen' us, but
also of those who are to give nd fur
nish the information therefor'.
Ist. It is expeeted and required of the
Assistant Marshal, to be as correct and
diligent in the performance of.bis tin
ges, as the nature of the case will ad
mit of; so that the government may
have positive knowledge of the popula
tion of the country, and of its resources
and wealth, as compared with the last
decade. To a certain extent, the posi
tion is a delicate and unenviable one,
and many may deem the numerous
questions to ,be asked, as impertinent,
and as evincing an uncalled for disposi
tion to pry into their domestic affairs
and relations, which, if properly under
stood by them, would meet with a ready
response, and a disposition to render
the officer all the aid in their power.
2nd. When we take into considera
tion the many nationalities of which
our population is comprised, and, to a
certain extent, the envious feelings that
exist between the different classes, they
require to know beforehand the object
of the catechism, so,.they may answer
fully and intelligently to all the ques
tions to be propounded to them, The
law does not contemplate an investiga
tion into the pecuniary responsibility
or liability of any individual, but sim
ply to know the wealth of the country
and its reeourees, as well as to prepare
for a now division of Representative
districts in each of the States of the
Union. Also, whatever information is
obtained by the officer, is to be kept by
him, and at the proper time furnished
to the general government, for the ben
efit of all concerned. Knowing this, it
is hoped and expected that all good cit
izens will aid the Marshal to the best of
their ability, R. T. WOOD, A't Mg.
134 OSSIP. —There are a great many peo
plo in this world, and among them rill a great
many kinds of folk. It is said that it takes all
sorts to make up a world. Whence I think the
world is made up. But after all, they are all
alike in ono particular.: Every batman being
"carries weight in life." Some carry it upon
their hearts, some in their souls, some upon their
backs—all aro bent beneath it in BOMO way. We
'may look about us and see many who apparently
never know u oaro, or fool a pang of regret, or
sigh for anything longed for but never attained:
I have Seen many who one time seemed so much
at ease in the world, that the lookers on believed
them fully so in all things—contented the whole
way mug, Ansui reining in IV sweet number tnrougti
each night, a long life over. Activity, labor,
pastime, life, was repose. The waters round
about were placid. i No rude winds awaken, no
storms beset. Money, goods, lands, power, emi
nence, were all theirs, in unstinted measure.—
There was none to dispute title with them. By
'common consent, they held "eminent domain."
The life was lovely to look at, as we saw it—the
vision was enchanting.
Thus is it at a distance. But when we come
to look at close view, how all the glitter and ele
gance and ease fade away ! Every life has its
cares, its sorrows, and, it may be, regretb. Get
close enough to any heart•to look within the soul
—to look within the veil which hides from vulgar
view the inner life,—and many put on the goodly
mantle of seeming contentment and resignation,—
and you will feel it some time flutter with the
pangs of disappointment, of fallen hopes, of
some longing unrequited, or of some end in life
attained and lost. Itegrot buries up the sunshine
of the past; remorse expels the light of the pass
ing day, and a long, dark shadow is over all the
future, alouding all its hopes, it may be, in the
impenetrable darkness of despair I
Yet not every life, thank God, is crushed by
such a weight. Some there bo who, through the
clouds, see the golden sun shiiie, nor reckon any
moment lost, even though it have a sorrow. It
is because they 800 the life as it is—because they
know that man is fallen, and feel that only thro'
the one perfect Exemplar of human life,.can they
drive away the stains of sins accomplished, and
guard against the evils that wo fly to. Every
day caoh ono is tempted—some law is broken,
and then' the penalty falls as certainly as that
time is, in which it may come.
How vain seems all this struggle of a' life, if,
after all, we must Ho down in death, with all the
sears upon our spiritual bodies, not yet healed,
when the last great sacrifice is made, and still in
curable throughout all the future 1 No ; this eau
not be : if wo will, it must be otherwise. Nature
cures, heals, renovates; she sets a time when
good deeds may bury all the bad, so long regret
ted, if at all ;—and can there boa soul that never
regrets a wrong?
And the good dame rests ! Sweet be her sluni
bora, happy her dreams, and not regretted the
doming bf the morn. How sad and lone this so
liloquy ! How wanders the mind away back
through all the sighing winds, which seem fit
messengers of remembered happy moments, gone,
alas, to never be recalled ! And I wonder if her
dreams catch up the mournful fancies of my
brain to-night; and if oho reaches out toward
me, to learn if they indeed be real 7 If she knows
the way, or if she wanders, as I do so often and
so much, when the vacant hours come, in.which
there is no fast hold upon the world, and all seems
wreck, and desolation, and despair! • God save
her, and all, from such a lost condition, The
awakening seems so terrible ! And what a strange,
mysterious thing is this dream of life! All the
world are dreamers; and dreams of real and pos
sible things, which we know bow to comprehend
through the light of our life-experience,' are all
well enough ; but when we step beyond, into the
Mystic incomprehensible, and seek to find our
rookoning there, how is it I Is it not better to
stand by the tangible within tho normal sphere
9f our senses, and! not launch out upon the an.
known sea ? Those who can do so, will say this
is the better way, of course ; they atop when they
get out the length of their line, and turn their
hands to whatever they may find to do, that paps.
Thorn is no use of doing anything that does nipt
pay, according to their philosophy. They like
to ace the profits within reach. Thep see how
things nbout may be turned to account, and they
begin at once to make some , use of them. More
thought—a thing that cannot be seen or handled,
heard, smelt, nor tasted—is of no account, unless
it can be used in some way to turn some wheel in
the machinery of life. When you step beyond
this, there is nothing to stand upon—that is, no
thing that they know of—so they stop short, and
rest contented. They have never yet fitted out
for snob a voyage, By. and by comes the sudden
dawn of a new light. They see as they bad nev
er seen before. They speak and. understand 'a
new language. Nature has taught them a new
lesson, and set it so deeply in the heart that it
never can be forgotten. Bo after all it is not a
matter of volition. It
- comes upon us;—wherq
fore, we may not know, and - cannot tell. Then
we begin to struggle; to reach out; to eeek after
a perfect solution of a problem we may not solve
in time ;—and thus it is we find ourselves out
upon the open sea. , The sea expresses it. It is
the incomprehensible, the multiple of all things
beside. Vast,.measiirelesa, immense, engulfing

Dear Sir:—Your favor of the 18th inst..,

Although you say nothing of a slip about the

may be of some service to you.
Please turn to p. 120, of the 14th Mass. Re.

But ill the Accident Department there was a
moderato surplus ($60,052 75) which more than
canceled (by $34,352 01) the deficiency in the
Life Department. You will observe that on p.
120 and p. 123 of above report, the capital
($600,000,) is included in the assets of the Acci
dent Department.. Where then is the "security
of the Co." to Life polio) , holders ? Suppose too
that the circumstances of the ease were changed,
and that the Accident Dept. was insolvent and
the Life Dept. had a surplus, would not the Co.
pounce on the fends of the Life Dept. to pay for
the broken loge and arms?
2d, They claim '.cheapness of the insurance."
May not a thing be too cheap ? Does not the in
solvency of their Life Dept. prove their insurance
too cheap ? How long can they stand cheap
rates? Should the insurant ever %orifice securi
ty to cheainess?
3d, They say "tbo Mutual Companies charge
in their policies a large premium, but make a
verbal promise outside of the policy to return in
the future some of the overcharged premiums
which they call! dividends." The Washington
has always stated in the policy that it insured a
certain sum "withparticipations iq pro fi ts."
The subject is not exhausted, but perhaps wo

Cleanse the Blood.
111kWITH corrupt or tainted Blood you
are sick all over. It may burst out
in Pimples, or Sores, or in 'some ac
tive disease, or It may merely keep
you listless, depressed and good for
nothing, But you cannot have good
health while your blood is impure.—
Agee,' Sarsaparilla purges out these
impurities; it expels disease and stimulates the organs
on life Into vigorous action. Hence it rapidly cures
a variety of complaints which are caused by impurity
of tho blood, such as Scrofula, or icing's Evil, Tumors,
Ulcers, Sores, Eruptions, Pimples, Blotches, Boils, St.
Authany'a Fire, Rose or Erysipelaii, Totter or Salt
Rheum, Scald Head, Ring Worm, Cancer or Cancerous
Tamers, Sore Eyes, Fomale Diseases, such as Retention,
Irregularity; Suppression, Whites, Sterility, also Sy
philis or VeneraiDiseases, LiverComplainte, and Heart
Diseases. Try Ayer's' Sarsaparilla, and aeo for your
self the surprising activity with which it cleanses the
blood and °urea these disorders.
During late years the public, have been misled by
large bottles pretending to give a quart - of Extract of
Sarsaparilla for ono dollar. Most of these have been
frauds upon the sick, for they not only contain little,.
if any, Sarsaparilla, but often no =Hive ingredient
whatever. Hence, bitter disappointments has followed
the use of the various extracts of Sarsaparilla which
flood the market, until the name 'itself has become
synonymous with imposition and cheat. Still we call
this compound, " Sarsaparilla," arid intend to supply
such a remedy as shall rescue the name from the load
of obloquy which rests upon it. We think we have
ground for believing It has virtues which are irresisti
ble by the class of diseases it is inteded to cure: We
can assure the sick, that we offer tem the best altera
tive we know bow to produce, and we have reason to
belielv, it is by far the most effectu al puri fi er of the
ll u
blood Yet discovered.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral is so universally known to
surpass every other medicine for the cure of Coughs,
Colds, Influenza, 'Coarseness, Croup. Bronchittie,
clpiehtConsnmption,. and for therlief of Oonsump•
tive Patients in advanced stages of he disease, that it
is useless here to recount the evidence of its virtues.—
