The question seems settled in the oth
er counties of this judicial district as
well as in this, as to who is to be elec
ted President Judge this fall. We copy
below from the Cameron Democratic
and Republican papers :
" His Honor, Judge H. W. Williams, has re.
ceived the nomination of his party in Tioga on.
for the President Judgeship of this judicial dls,
triet. This has been accomplished after a bitter
,contest. His first opponent 'was Hon. Judge
' White, who withdrew in favor of a lawyer by the
name of Seymour, a gentleman of reputed wealth
and popularity ; but over these two aspirants
combined, Mr. Williams received nearly five votes
to their one; the Crawford county system being
the mod 6 of nominating in that county. This is
a -well deserved tribute to merit. His Honor will
undoubtedly be *ducted without opposition; and
it is a question whether there is a man in the die
tri et better adapted every way for the honorable
position. Let us now have the, law creating an
Assistant Law Judge repealed, and out off one of
those who feed at the public erib."--inktrident.
Von JUDO H.—lten, H. W. Williams is the una.
nimous choice for President Judge of this dis
trict. Tioga voted (Crawford county system) last
weak, and ho received about 1400 majority over
Mr. 11..yruilur,.of Tinge. This part of the dig
triut has, we believe, chosen delogetei favorable
to Ur. Villiarns's nomination, and ho will re
th unanimous nomination of the Conven
tion. J dgo White withdrew from the oontest
two wee a ago, and endeavored to make tho peo
ple they wanted Mr. Seymour, but the
people • eould'nt see it."—Preee.
The Atlantic coast was visited on the
20th instant by one of the most violent
and long continued storms on record.
The fall of rain at Charleston, B. Caro
lina, was 8 inches, and the gale was
fearfully heavy. Fortunately, the di
rection of the wind was oil' the coast,
giving ships a chance for gaining sea
room. Had the wind been on instead
of eff shore, our coast would have been
strewn with wrecks.
The Harrisburg Patriot trios to malt()
a point agtti Onl. Stanton by charg
ing him with being a "contract surgeon"
during the war.
Well, yeg ; he was a contracteurgeon,
just as a majority of the able bodied
men in this country were contract sol
diers, 1. e. fie was mustered Into the
service "for three years, unless sooner
discharged." And he did not refuse to

Leo's army was burning Chambers
burg,—declaring, as did Gen. McCand
less, that "the post of honor was the
private station."
The investigations concerning the
above disaster have developed some im
portant facts: among the more impor
of which are these : First, it is
pro ed that the engineer Robinson,
was unable to read the-Inspector's cer
tificate; 6eeond, he had frequently
carried more steam than wasallowed by
law ; and, third, ho was away from his
engine, and asleep at the- time of the
There aro rumors—and more than
rumors—of a serious misunderstanding
between Russia ;mid Germany. Russia
has made and is making large military
preparations, and all Paris jumps at
the conclusion that this mean§ war be-
tween the two great northern Powers.
It is quite possible : and if it should
prove te be the case,—then, we fancy,
there would be such rejoicing in France
as that sunny land has notknown since
the days of Austerlitz and Jena :—and
the indemnity matter would be settled
in a way not contemplated by Prussia.
tf any man knows just what the
government of France is at present, we

Is an excellent thing,—but can't it,
somehow, be got to market with less

of coal think - of the scotch fish-woman's

How does the "Old thing Work."
We must confess that it doesn't work
at all to our satisfaction. We dont ob
ject to the slight earthquakes that have
lately jarred domestic crockery in the
Eastern States. They need it down
East—to jar some of their conceitiout
of them. Still, it must be remembered
that when once earthquakes get in the
notion of shaking up a country, they
are apt \ to overdo the thing.
But what worries us istheundeniable
fact that the concern is on fire inside:
and to an alarming extent, as is proved
by the continual , breaking out of vol

• ! WELLBBORO, August .21, 1871.
Editor Agitattir i—Dear Sir—lii the
Agitator of Augustl, 1871, was an article signed
"se," in reference to "Commissioners, Unseated
Lands, Taxes." After speaking of the neoessity
of selecting proper persons for the office of county
Oommitisioneri and of the assessment of unseated
lands, the Writer makes the unfounded allegation
that "Meet of the land , owned by one corpora
tion, Phelps, Dodge A - Co., is assessed at about
$2 per aare."
The Above obarge is amply refuted by the state
ment of the Commissioners in the Agitator of the
9th. Your correspondent further says: "If the
township Assessors put them up, the Commis
sioners, under the hammer of two. or three attor
neys, whom the company keep constantly in their
pay, • • put them down. '
To show the falsity of this allegation, I insert
the following statement, whioti'explains Itself: '

Your corresiondent farthei, "says : « T he °W
rens of Wellaboro arid along the line of the rail-,
road pay about $15,000 for the right of way.--
The owners of this property do not pay one oetit."l
Messrs. Phelps, Dodge h Co. have given the right
of way for therailroad across their lands,
,a dis
tance of nearly two • miles. ' They have 11 t been i
solicited by any person to give anything o pay
for the right of way ; but no one of the oo mittee
appointed to raise funds has for a moment doubted
that when was ascertained the exact amount
quirid to Llitt 'Mined, the company wonld,pay,their
full share: ' T he whole thing was and la% left in
the hands of Cheater Robinson ' a member of the
railroad, committee, who has the fullest confi
dence that Mr. Dodge viillgive their fall propor
tion. The tenor of the article ,rifetred to, is to
prejudion'the people 'of this / oeuntj , against the
company. They .are ready and willing to aid
and assist in our railroad enterprises and the de
velopment of 'our material resources ; F and I tholt
it but fair to them that title statement should be
made.JEnomn B. limes

Dcar Sir :—At. last the , excitement arising

and we can sit quietly down and canvass the
probable reasons for the defeat of our party.—
As it stands, it is not at all a Democratic vioto
ry, but a fusion of both parties. This was cer
tainly broUght about by the 'potion of &Jew par
ties ittlthe ',Convention. ; , _l9lay. tbo very ticket
Was repudiated, and, when too late, dropped,r;
This I believe to be the prime cause of the split,
although there are many other masons assign.
ed. Bet the fight Is over, and, in the language
of one now gone, "„we have met the enemy and
we are theirs;" brit still We live, having
glorious news from afar. But enough of our
politics, as I see by your columns that you have
your h ands full at home.
Wo are now having rain every day, and night
and X assure you nojdrissles, but rains that
are to be found nowhere, I belieVe, on earth ex
cept this part of God's moral vineyard. It se
riously interferes with taking in the fodder, and
is also ruinous to cotton. Our corn does very
well, also rice. It is thought our orop all thro'
will fall off one-third.
We have bad some more " onpleasantness."
This time it happens right here, and is still clou
ded in mystery. On the night of the 10th inst.
a row was commenced. Early in the evening
one shot was fired, and nobody hit, but upon
'examination one colored man found badly out
in the face , and shoulder. After having hilt
wounds attended' to, we repaired to i saloon for
the purOse of obtaining some of the oreaturb
comforts, when the stillness of the night was
again broken by the repOrt of - lrearmr, , and
close at that. The shot was very successful, for
it Struck" five different ppciple. 'The g4n,was
loaded with duck shot: ' One man has six in his
leg, the others ranging from one to five. From
the appearance of everything, the 'hot was fired
very close. . There can be no reason given for
the shooting of these men, as they were sitting
quietly on the stops of the saloon, talking.—
Everybody is excited now, and truly you will
think it is time, when such lively little surprise
parties come off every now and then. I send
by this titan the Kingstree` Star and the first boll
of cotton 'ticked on my place::.o J. 8.
FORT.—On Sunday, the 20th instant, about 8 P.
Pd., a fire broke out in the stable of O. M. Baker,
in WilliamspOrt,-.4hioh; awing to a high south
erly wind, spread with great rapidity, soon be
coming uncontrollable. Among the buildings
consumed wo notice ttio , Waverly House, the res
idence of the late Oovornor, Packer, residence of
W. R. Vanderbelt, of Mrs. D. HePburn, and the
