The County Prfatlng-The Aaaeuueet De
cisioa r tke Commissioners A Cbae
r the Law Keeee.
Last week we stated that the Commis
sioners of this county called to their
office the publishers of the RegiUr, the
Sentinel, and ihe Republican, on the 10th
iust for the purpose of ascertaining the
circulation of said papers within the
county, that they the Commissioners
might direct the county printing to be
published in the two papers having the
largest number .of bona fiit subscribers
within the county. We also stated the
number that each publisher was sworn to
as bona Jide subscribers ; and further, we
elated that the Rrpubtican' list was
largely made up of names secured for
three months or the emergency Many
of these papers, the parlies who receive
them say, have been received with the
understanding that they are not to pay
for them for three months, and may dis
continue at the expiration of that term
free of charge. The conditions on which
many of these papers were sent out
varied to suit the respective places and
circumstances. The people of Lack,
Tuscarora, Monroe, Greenwood aud Sus
quehanna townships and 1'atterson bor
ougb, aud other districts not necessary to
mention now, know how the business
It was not believed that the Commis
sioners wonld receive such a list as bona
Jiile subscribers. They did ; and if they
grimmaced. it was because there were
objections made to their receiving it.
They not only received such a list, but
they hastened to publish to the citizens
of the county the result of their ques
tionable work in their chosen organs, the
RejUier and Rrpnb'ican, of last week
TLoir ad vftjrtiaemnt appears over tha. aig
nature of their Clerk, that the " public
printing" has beeq awarded to the two
papers just stated
They hastened to create more patron
age foi their papers. Wc say, create,
for the law does not authorize them to
publish their decision probably they did
it under their reserved rights, as the
rebels said when they seceded, State after
State, from the General Government.
Their decision was not rendered as
Justice is supposed to render hers
blindfolded, so that she cannot see any of
the parties in the contest, so that she may
be governed only by the principles of
right and honor as they are made clear
They required no evidence, no proof,
though the law says that they shall hear
proof. They were not blindfolded, nei
ther were they deaf They heard the
common report from different parts of the
county, and heai J the declaration in their
office that the means empluyed by the
litpullicun, to fay the very least of it,
was not of that kind that commends it
self to honorable men.
They seemed in as great a hurry to
push the case to a conclusion without i
evidence for they scarcely allowed the j
time that was asked to make out a list of
subscribers from the subscription books
to be placed ou file in their own office as
they were to publish their miserably de
fective advertisement of their decision or
Their advertisement is defective io this,
that it does not say how long their
award which was made, at least so far
as one paper is concerned, chiefly on a
three months' list shall stand, whether
for three months, six months, one year,
or till the "crack of doom." (It may be
parenthrtically added here that when
that great event will have been ushered
in, the awards then meted out will be in j
accordance with justice, and there will !
be no reserved rights to claim and fall
1 he failure to specify the duration or
the length or time that the decision of
the Commissioners shall remain in force
may have appeared unintentionally, and j
it may have been intended to appear just
as it does.
These custodians of the public affairs
of the county should issue another proc-
lamation for the triple purpose of matin-!
facturing patronage for their organs, and
to clearly set before the miuds of the
public for what length of time their de
cision or decree shall remain in force, and
that all publishers of newspapers in the
county of Juuiata will be allowed to pre
sent any kiud of a list they please and
no questions will be asked, only so that
the Clerk administer the oath.
To issue such a proclamation would
not more forcibly argue their utter inca
pacity for the position of public trust
that they now hold, than their manner of
the disposal of the public printing ar
gued their incapacity.
It is high time that the people of Ju
niata county put tuto that office a set of
men of a different grade. A change is
needed. We want men who have
minds and judgments of their own. We
want men who have moral firmness
enough to keep themselves steadily in
the course of justice, so that their actions
are not a stench in the nostrils of the
If we had the opportunity of doing
all the public printing needed in the
whole Commonwealth, we would not
accept it if it had to be obtained as the
Rrpullican obtained the public printing
of this county.
If the bestowal or the awarding of the
public printing in Juniata conuty is a
something that robs both those who be
stow or award it and those who receive
it, of their manhood, then the law crea
ting it should be abolished, aud a law
enacted in its stead, giving the public
printing to the two papers in the county
that will publish it for the least money,
Let it by contract lo the lowest bidder,
as other contracts are let. Let the next
Legislature be petitioned for a law of
that kind, and let the people, irrespective
of party, vote for no man for Senator

immediate steps be taken to call another

A LOGWOOD EXTRACTOR BLOWN UP I.N
MII.LVILLK TWO PERSONS KILLED.
The town of Millville, Cumberland
county, waa tb aeenn. a few day a eineo,
of terrific explosion, which cost two
fine young men their lives. Adjoining
Wood Brothers' bleachery stood a small
building, in which were three large tubs
and two logwood extractors. The latter
were about the size of steam generating
boilers and were twelve feet in circum
ference, five feet in length, and about
3,500 pounds. One of these extractors,
from a cause which has not been explain
ed, suddenly exploded with a report like
! the broadside of a line of battle ship.
- According to the eye-witnesses the
great bulk shot up in the air some five
hundred feet, until it looked no bigger
than a good sized pumpkin. Then down
it came, crashing clean through a pile of
three-inch planking six planks high,
which was located about two hundred
and fifty feet from the scene of explosion.
The buildings were entirely demolished,
the other extractor upset and the tubs
rooted from their brick beds. Thomas
Hartley, a youth of IS, who was attend
ing the building, and John Ruttcr, two
years younger, where hurled fifty feet in
the air. They were scalded and bruised
so that both died within twenty-fonr
hours of the explosion. An inquest was
held by Coroner Slurdevant and a ver
diet rendered relieving everybody from
blame, either as regards defective con
struction or neglect.

By the way, we might add tint very
few bells tolled on the ' Confederate Me

reason, and they are not ashamed to tell
vnn. Thev have ver few bells but
three in ail the city the fire bell, and
the beil on the Omhan House, and the
chimes on St Michael's, which were
sent to England for safety, and brought
back at the close of the war. All the
others were lowered from their position
and heroically thrown into the bands of
the Confederate Government to be made
into cannon with which to kill Federals.
What a quiet city we have on the Sab
. But after all, our Union dead were
remembered today. Few white peo
ple were there, but a great crowd of col
ored citizens.. This seems strange, since
it is known that we have here many
Northerners who pass for strong Union

ous reasons for not participating in these
ceremonies. Their business would suffer
they would at once receive the seal of
southern condemnation. They jreraained
at home aud were silent Others who
were afraid of losing a vote from the
overruling political class, came and lin

had no "axe to grind," participated iu
the ceremonies. We blush with shame !

by Rev. II. J. Fox, D. D. of the Metho

singing "My country, 'tis of thee."
Iioiv beautiful this old national song
sounded as it rang through the live
oaks of magncJia over the graves of
the brave boys, who gave up their lives
for freedom !
After singing, the Memorial ode was

like the odes read in different parts of
the country, on like patriotic occasions.
This one, to say the least, w&s good.
Then commenced the woik of strew-'
ing the graves with flowers. This was
done by forty little colored girls under
the direction of Mrs. M. E. McLaughlin,
a white lady. How happy we all felt,
as we looked down upon the flowery
graves of these uoLIe boys, sleeping away
from home iu an enemy's country ? How
thankful we felt that they had a few
friends to raise the stars and stripes
above them and scatter mementoes of an
undying love and gratitude. Then we
left them, after singing the following

Faithful heart have not forgotten
Why ye yielded up yonr life.

Jluthed the tauaderoue cannonade.
Ceased ibe work of torch and sabre.
Ceased the devastating raid.
Tillage smoothes the fields of slaughter,
Bloodless is the streamlet's flow ;
War is but a horrid vision
Of the fevered Long Ago.
Still, oh sleeping brave, the banner
Freedom's banner floats an high,
Proud as when its image faded
From your death-enshrouded eye
Waves o'er all the land united.
Emblem of the nation's power,
Grand memento of the martyrs
Who have left it as their dower.
Here above their honored ashes
Strengthened, though our tears will fall
Pride appeases half our sorrow.
When their triumphs we recall.
Bend, oh skies, in peace above them
Fresh, ye garlands, still remain
Angels guard their dreamless slumbers
Peace be with ye, gallant slain.

Similar attempts have been ini.lt: to in-

cheap meats, in a fresh condition, of
Australia and South Araerici
these nv-ai have, so far failed to be

commentary upon the boasted civiliza-
tion of the age and the ingenuity of man
kind that, while millions of people are
suffering in one quarter of the globe foi
cheap meat, millions of dollar's worth ot
cattle are anou.illy destroyed simply for
their hides, horns and bones.'
A touching incident is reported from
Chattanooga, Tenn. An nffer stranger
called on a respectable farmer last week
aud asked him if l.i.-i house had net been
robbed during ihe war. The farmer re
plied that it bad. "I," said the stran
ger, "was one of the marauding party
that did it. I took a little silver locket."
"That locki t," said the farmer, bursting
into tears, "had been worn by my dear,
dear child." "Here it is." replied the
stranger, visibly affected, "I am rich ;
let me make resolution ; here are $20
for your little son." He gave the iai nu-r
a $50 biil, and received $30 in clian-e.
He then wruug the farmers hand warm
ly and left. The farmer has since dried
his tears and loaded his shot gun. The
$50 was bad.
