07A movement is on foot, in Pike coun
ty, to purchase Col. Mott's interest in tin
Milford Herald,au& to place the paper more
effectually in the hands of the Copperheads
of that region. The Col's, interest in the
concern is the controling one, if it does not
embrace the entire ownership, and as he is
more favorably inclined towards the suppres
sion cf rebellion than is considered consistent
with unnlloyed Pike county Democracy, it
is feared that he may, if longer connected
with the paper, so cramp the room that trea
son may not have a chance for the free spreid
of its wings. Hence the effort to choke the
Col. out. of the concern.
0OThe Easton Argus makes a most ear
nest appeal to the Democracy of Northanip
ton county to come forward and increase its
subscription list If Hutter would circulate
his appeal in J'ff. Davis's dominions his trai
torous brethren might feel that as he was
trying to help thf-rn a good deal here in the
North, it was their duty to try and help him
a litile there in the South, and thus add ma
terially t his list. It is tru" they might pay
an Confadoratc Scrip, which is about as thir
ty to one below "Lincoln Currency,' as the
Argus calls it; but as, according to Hutter,
everything in rebeldom is just right, and ev
erything in the North all wrong, it would
suit exactly. It would be still better, per
haps, if Hutter would leave his appeals at
home and remove himself and the Argus
down there. He could then, as an aid, put
in a claim against those rebel prisoners to
whose comfort he so faithfully ministered, at
Phillipsburg, a year or two ago.
New countries have wants and habits
peculiar to themselves. In our widely ex
tended and sparsely settled territory,
medicines ready prepared are more em
ployed, and are in fact a greater necessity
than in the old countries. Dr. Ayer's
preparationshave given the public greater
confidence iu this class of remedies than
had ever been felt before. Physicians
instead of discarding them, really favor
tne use reaay at nana antidotes for disease
when they can be depended on. And
we wish our readers to know that in
publishing J. C. Ayer & Co.'s adverise-
nient, or any others of like reliable char
acter, we think we are furnishing them

The Arrest of Wm. H. H. Bartr'dai;
On Thursday last the Provost MarT.
shall's detectives, arrested Mr..;.'Wilham
IL II. Bartram for desertion. Bartram
came to this section of country sometime
iu June last as au ostensible agent for the
sale of weather strips for windows and
doors. Soou after his arrival here lie be
came "halo fcllow well met" with politi
cians of the Vallandigham kidney, and
before the close of the late campaign,
ranked among the most distinguished oi
the oratorical champions of the McCIclkm
Democracy. He could fume and blow,
and bluster, and lie, too, in a style that
placed our home-made Democratic orators
clear iu the back ground, aud caused uo
little envy among them ; and if large let
ters had been fashionable in the getting
up of Democratic posters, the name of
Rartram would have appeared iu capitals
the tallest of the tall. Horribly severe
was he, ou all occasions, on the "black re
publicans" and "abolitionists" generally,
but particularly was he severe on honest
old Abe and on his efforts to conquer a
peace. It was all wrong, in his estima
tion, the way things were being carried on.
During his prercgrination here it leak
ed out that Bartram had belonged to the
army, and as his walk and conversation
was. iu every respect, similar to that in
dulged by those who had taken " French
leave" of the recruiting sergeant, it was
surmised to be more than probable that if
he was just then doing his duty, he would
be serving out his time in the armv, rath
er than in giving comfort to rebels, by
aiding their friends and active coworkers
hereabouts. Hints that such was public
opinion were repeatedly given him j and
so poiuted did the.e hints become iu the
end, that they induced him, a few days
alter the Presidential electiou to leave for
parts uuknown. For a time nothing was
heard of Bartram. At length, however,
he made his appearance in Lchmjn town
ship, Pike County, where his time was
divided between keepiug old sinners full
up to the mark iu their treason, and in
imparting to the youth of that region the
rudiments of a common school education
While thus employed it entered the minds
of some of the peoplc-toJearn whether he
was exactly the person to deal out uu
measured abuse of every one who so far
differed with him politically as to uphold
the Government in its efforts to crush
treason. He had before confessed a con
nection with the arm', but claimed to
hava been regularly and honorably dis
charged. lie was now called upon to
proiuce the evidence of that discharge
and not being able to do so, was brough
to Stroudsburg and lodged in jail, aud on
Monday last delivered over to the tender
care of Uncle Samuel's agent3 at Easton,
as a deserter. If Bartram is a deserter
he will be held as such. If he produces
the papers setting forth an honorable dis
charge, he will be released at once, with
the well learned lesson, to be prepared
for emergencies by always keeping by
him the evidence which the law makes it
the duty of every discharged soldier to
have. Bartram's case has this in it and
nothing more. If he suffers innocently
he has nothing but his own impudence to
thauk for it. He certainly has not earn
ed for himself a nlace in the armv of
e have given vastly more space to
this case than its merits demand; but we
have done so iu order to prepare the pub
blic for any outbreak of condemnation
which croaking editors and croaking pol
iticians of the Democratic school, rua'
feel called upon to indulge for the pur
pose of making capital out of it. Already
ono paper has given a column of Pcck
sniffiau rhodomontade to its elucidation,
and we doubt not that if left to run on
unheeded the name of Bartram will from
one end of the Union to the other, be
coupled with martyrdom, and cited by
the Democratic Press as another and an
alarmiug cvideuce of the "tyrannical dis
position" of this "abolition," nigger-loving,"
Administration. Prom the facts we
have here detailed, and they are indispu
table facts, it will be seen at a glance
just now mucu wcigtit siiould DC given

lie sets out with announcing the fact of
the arrest; he follows with Bartram's self
immolation on the altar of his country's
good in shape of a letter to Cotter, with
whom, as was the case, with Tyler and
Botts in days "Lang Syne," he had room
ed and possibly bedded the night before ;
he then re.veutures a suggestion to Mar
shal Yohe, and hurls a condemnation at
the "informer," in Bartram's case; he
then informs his readers that "Eternal
viijUcnce is the price of liberty ;" aud
that the only way to secure that vigilence,
is for those readers "to come to the aid"
of the Herald. Cotter is "not apprehen
sive of the fate of Mr. Bartram," but he
is apprehensive of the fate of the Herald,
aud of the Copperhead Democracy of Pike;
and he "sounds the alarm," to the faith
ful and beers them to "come at once" to his
aid. With true democratic intuition he
fears that outsiders are striving to "possess

Ayrc's Ague Cure.
I'OIl THE SPEEDY CURE OF
Intermittent Fever, or Fever and Ague,
Remittent Fever, Chill Fever, Dumb
Ague, Periodical Headache or Uillious
JJcadache, and Billions Fevers, indeed
fur the whole class of diseases origina
ting in biliary derangement, caused by
thc Malaria of miasmat ic countries.
Fever and Ague is not the only conse
quence of thc miasmctic poison. A great
variety of disorders arise from its irritation,
in malarious districts, among which are Neu
ralgia, Rheumatism, Gout. Ileadachc, Blind
ness, Toothache, Earache, Catarrh, Asthma,
Palpitation, Painful Affection of the Spine,
Flystcrics, Pain in the Bowels, Colic, Para
lysis, and Derangement of the Stomach, all
of which, when originating in this cause put
on the intermittent type, or become periodi
cal. This "Ore" expels the poison from
the blood, und thus cures them ail alike. It
is not only the most effectual remedy ever
discovered for this class of complaints, but
it is the cheapest and morcovor is perfectly
safe. No harm can arise from its usp, and
the patient when cured is left as healthy as
if he had never had the disease. Can this
be said of any other cure for Chills and Fe
ver? It is true of this, and its importance
to those afflicted with the complaint cannot
be over estimated. So sure is it to cure the
Fever and Ague, that it may be truthfully
said to be a certain remedy. One Dealer
complains that it is not a good medicine to
s:'ll, because one bottle cures a whole neigh
borhood. Prepared by J. C- Are & co., Lowell,
Mass., and sold by Wm. Ilollinshead, Drchcr
& Brother, in Stroudsburg, and by dealers
in medicine everywhere.
