The Republican ' s , 'of Massachusetts

for Governor. There were live candi
dates for gubernatorial honors, of wilora
three—nice, Loring and Clef:lin—with
drew for the sake of ,unity and the de
feat of General Butler. The -,candida
ture was settled by a vote of 6143 to 464,
in favor of Washburne.
CAUTION. THE TICKET.
Most of our friends may not need the
caution ; but it'tnay be as well to ex
plain that the ticket, which is printed
entire on a slip of paper, is to be cut
into three parts : State—Survir General
and Auditor CI el) eral; Judiciary-Judge;
d County, with names of county
candidates and candidate for State Sen
ate Each of these is to be folded so
as to leave only the heading in sight,
and all handed in together..
'Ulna additional law Judge business :
remember this. If H. W. Williams is
elected President Judge, there must ho
another Judge appointed to servo until
the next penectil electiOn. In the mean
time the a,:ul.•e law, as some of our co
temporat les call it., can tie repealed next
winter, and then there will be no addi
tional l►w judge elected in 1872 ; so
that when the
,appointee's time runs
out, which will he in a sear, that little
hill of expense is set aside: no more
additional lass• jUdge to hay. r
(Au the otherhand, if some other can
didate Were to ho elected President
Judge, the piesent additional judge
would hold over until tho explration . 9f
the time for which he was elected,
the special law on the subject were re
pealed next winter; the only effect of
that repeal being to prevent ari election
of sucli additional law judge.
And don't forget to agitate for the re
peal of that la'w on election day. The
sum paid to one such judge may not be
very great when spread over the Com
tuonwealth of Pennsylvania, but, great
or small, ft is wrong; and:if the people
do not take hold *of the matter, we shall
have over thirty additional law judges
in the State, each costing $5,000 per an
,num. And th©n how about the ex

Mr. Editor ;—Again Cornell openi. For the:.
fourth time in her short career, does she extenk
her arms to welcome the high, the low, the rich,
the poor , the white, the bleek— l any one who may
desire to obtain the lore which is dispensed with
in her walls. : Even th ough the student may be
inclined to seek lore scientific; philosophic, or
mathematic ; though his moat heartfelt wish may
be to delve deep for a knowledge of the olassios,
ofliterature or of chemistry ; he finds all open
to him, and imparted by Professors, who, to use la
slang phrase, are "-up to tbeir business."
Perhaps it : would be as well, for the benefit of
a few who may not know, to give abrief descrip
tion of the situation of Ithaca as regards its aux
•roundings, and of the university, as well as a
few words regarding its foundation and charter.
Reader, were you to find yourself suddenly
placed on an observatory,_in the central part,ql
Ithaca, doubtless you -- wouldTo romewhat sur
prised, as well at the sudden change of haze, as
at the vievrpresented to your. actuary organs.--
- Should you look westward, you would see within
a mile; a bill rising or eight hundred feet
above you. Turn southward and eastward, and
hilbi of about the same dimensions 'greet your,
eye.. You need not believe. you. are werrounded
by hills yet. Cast your Byer to the northward,
and there opus to your sight,the beautiful Calfttp

surrounds it. Although the hills about Ithaca
are " fair to look upon," the business portion of
the village le badly situated. The lake is about,
a mile from the town, which mile is occupied bx
a marsh, the first squatter on the preirdies, and
which is covered with water, dr not •as the lake
is high or low. Some people think that it exerts
an epidemical p influence over the town; but •ato
ll-talcs show ,that - Ithaca only Mends second in
the State in favor of good health.
On the hill east, in plain sight, and about 'a
mile ' from town, stands 'Cornell University. at
