EgX. Strumous or Scrofulous affections
are the curse, the blight, the potato rot o
mankind. They are vile and filthy
as well as fatal. They arise from
contamination and impurity of the blood,
and are to be seen all around us every
where. One quarter of all wc meet are
rtaiutcd with them, and one quarter of
these die of them : die foolishly too, be
cause they are curable. Ayer's Sarsa-
parilla cleanses out the Scrofulous cor
ruption from the blood, renders it pure
and healthy, and effectually expurgates
the foul contamination from the system
No longer groan under your Scrofulous
disorders, since the irresistible Ayeii has
provided his masterly combination of cur
ative virtues that he calls Sarsafarilla.

We most cordially welcome to our table a
friend of "auld Jang syne'' Gody's Lady's
Book. The number before us the July
number, and the commencement of a new
volume shows that Gody's spirit of enter
prise has lo.-t none of its vim in the ye;irs
that have intervened since we last enjoyed
the privilege of reading the Book. The
Steel Plate, Colored Fashion Plate, "Wood
Guts, Pattern Plates, Music, &,c, &c, are
all ecms of excellence, and show that, as ofj
yore, time is hut a means with Gody to ex-
cel himself, and to keep an age in advance
of the msny who arc trying to imitate him

style of steel engraving, is, alone, a prize to

Large Sargical Operation.
Another of those ingautlb achievements
in surgical science and skill, which as
mnish the mind with - their boldness and
success, was accomplished at Shawnee, in
this county, on the 5th inst., by Dr. A.
Beeves Jackson, cf this place, in the
presence, and with the assistance of Drs.
Levering, Bush, Barnes. Davis, Baub,
Stewart, Bond, and several others. The
operation was for the removal of an Ova-
riau aumur lrum ijxc pc.suu ui iu;s. neii
ry Kintner, which was found to be . at
tached to the intestines, and other organs
in the abdominal cavity. The Tumoi
which had been growiug for about four
years, weighs fifteen pounds, aud, we
ihink, would fill the - capacity of a peck
Pleasure. The operation is a highly ilan
igerous one, but thus far the patient has

beon in good condition, and is likety to
make a good recovery. This is the sec
ondOperation of the kind performed by
Dr. Jackson within a year, the first hav
ing proved entirely successful.
One of the most destructive fires
mpon record took place at Portland,
.Maine, oa last Wednesday and Thursday.
About two thousand houses were destroy
ed, including all the banks, eight church
es, the newspaper offices, and all the city
buildings except the Custom ilousc,
wiucn ucing nrc-prooi, escnpeu, inougn
grcathy damaged. A strong gale was
Jblowing from the South at the time the
ifire broke out, and a tremendous sheet of
-flame swept along before it, destroying
everything in its passage. A large num
ber of buildings were blown up with pow
' der to prevent the spread of the fire. The
burnt portion of the city, embracing a
space of one aud a half miles long, Ly a
quarter of a mile wide, appears like a
forest of chimneys, with fragments of wall
attached to them, and the former lines of
the street can hardly be traced. Large
numbers of the people who have thus been
rendered homeless, are being sheltered in

xents. mi; joss is esumaieu at ten mil
lions of dollars, which is about one third
of the entire value of the city 'property.
jr The war in which Prussia and It
aly against Austria, are the contestants,
has began in good earnest. Two battles,
one between Italy aud Austria on the
Quadriliteral, in Venice, and the other
between Prussia and Austria, in Bohe
mia, have been fought, in both of which
Austria proved the victor.
The indictment against Jeff: Davis for
ireason, charges him with having, been
"moved and seduced by the devil." We
always thought the old iellow had a hctnd
in the matter, but. how did the grand ju
rors of Norfolk find it out ?
No Paper Last Week, &c, &c
Our readers will have observed by this
time that no paper reached them last
week. As, owing to many causes too te
dious to mention, wc priuted no paper,
none could handily reach them. We will
endeavor, however, in 'the better spirit
pervading the J EErERSONiAN, and in the
-rcalcr interest we shall endeavor to in-
fuse into its columns to make the present
loss of our subscribers a certain future
gain. It is so seldom that wc venture
upou a week of rest in the middle of our
editorial year, that we hope for the indul-
jreuce of our readers for our short com
During the week omitted but few
event's of extraordinary interest occurred
The first in the course of happening was
the Ladies' Fair for the benefit of the
Phoenix Fire Company, which came off
on the 27th aud 28th of June. From
whatever stand point you view it the Fair
was a complete success whether in the
beautifully trimmed aud festooned hall of
the Fair House buildinsr : the handsome
ly arranged tables, groaning with luxu
ries; the lovely damsels who waited so
smilingly to dispense the good things o
the season to all who called for them j
the crowds of delighted visitors, beauti
ful in the happiness which beamed upon
every countenauce or the cent per cent
profits to" the company, it wasta success oi
vh;ch all concerned, whether participat
ors, recipients, or patrons, might well fee
proud. A card attached below wil
show how well pleased were the Pluenix
laddies; and the general expression of sat
isfactiou and approbation of those whose
desires aided the efforts of the young la
dies, to swell the nctt proceeds to 200
and over, attest that the experiment might
be repeated again and again, without fear
of failure. Wc regretted exceedingly
that our engagements were so exacting as
to prevent our doing more than taking a
mere shadowy look at tlw fair, aud its
beautiful components. That look, how
ever, was sufficient to convince us that
everything connected with it was lovely,
and the "lager" excellent. Not the least
excellent feature connected with the fair
was the music by the Sircudaburg Cor
net Band. Though revived but a few
days, 3'ct, under the efficient teaching of
its leader, Edwin Bees, Esq., it discours
ed music so sweetly and harmoniously as
to earn for itself a place among the veto,
ran bands of the F-Uttc The Firemen's
parade and the match game of l.i.-c ball
were witnessed with delight Ly hundreds
of spectators, some of whom had a dam

The distribution of prizes was a pleas
ant feature of the Fair. The contest was
spirited, yet everything passed off most
harmoniously and pleasantly none re
joicing more over the success of the for
tunates than those whom the fates doom
ed to be unfortunate. The prizes voted
for were distributed as follows:
1st. The albam to be given to the sin

We cannot better close our notice of
this event than by giving place to the fol
CARD. The underpinned, committee ap
pointed by the Phoenix Fire Company, heg
leave to state to the public that the gross
proceeds of the Pair for the benefit of said
company was $367. The nett proceeds
reached the handsome sum of.$200.30. The
committee most respectfully tender the thanks
of the company to the lidies of iStroudsburg
anil vicinity, and to the Siroudsburg Cornet
Band, tor their valuble assistance in managing
ihe Fair, and to the public generally fr the
very liberal pairor.age extended to it. Should
occasion require, they hope to he able to
show, in the efficient labors of an efficient
Fire Company, that this effort in our behalf
has been but scattering of lha bread upon
the waters,' to be returned n hundred fold.

Stroudsburg July 2nd, 18GG.
The next event of importance was the
celebration of the 4th of July. Our bor
ough was out in its holiday attire, and
friends from the country catjp in by the
hundreds, but, unfortunately, both town
and' country appeared to turn out only to
see, not to participate in the celebra
tion. The result? of this was that the
firemen, the band, the committee ofSar
rangemenfSj the orator of the day, and the
reader of the Declaration had the proces-
sion all to themselves. A large crowd,
lowevcr, assembled in front of the Court-
House, when the precession reached that
point, and listened reverently to the rcad-
iu" of the Declaration, and the oration-
f ho orator, as was previously-announced,
was the Bev. Mr. Everitt, and when wc
say that his effort was most excellent, wc
but pive public voice to the opinion wc
heard freely expressed by hundreds of
those who heard it. But for the Phoenix
boys and the band, the parade would have
been no parade at all. The former drew
their engine and hose carriage with them
and both men and machine were the
admired of all beholders. The band
gave unequivocal evidence of capacity,
and discoursed sweet music, in a style
wWli would have done no discredit
to nrofessors. The celebration wound up
with a very neat and imposing display o
fire-works in the evening. "Wc were im
pressed with the truth of a remark made
by a gentleman in our hearing on the
morning of the 5th. "The day," said he
"was welleeleb'rated. T never saw so many
people together, and so little drunkenness
It was a glorious 4th.
Convention in Session at Sansom Stree
At ten o'clock, on Tuesday morning
July 3d, a Convention of the friends aud
supporters of President Johnson met in
Sausom Street Hall, but adjourned to
meet at half-past two o'clock in the after
noon, at which time a pcrmaucnt organi
zation was effected by the selection of the
following officers :
President Lion IT. W. Tracy
Vice-Presidents 0. It. Williamson,
Delaware county ; It. II. Foster, Centre
county: Josiah P. Iletrick, Northamp
ton county; Archibald ltobinson, Beaver
county; Henry Simons, Philadelphia;
Wm. M. Allison, Juniata couuty ; P. It.
Johnson, Luzerne county; Thomas C.
McDowell, Dauphin county; lion. James
Lowry, Allegheny couuty ; D. It. Har
per, Bucks c.uinty ; D. B. Davidson, Fay
ette couuty ; C. Cullum, Crawford coun

Secretaries S'. Snyder Leidy, Phila
delphia ; S. P. Sawyer, Allegheny ;
Theo. Schoch Monroe ; Colonel Tuny,
Chester; P. M. Uackenberg, Snyder,
and B. It. Bradford, Beaver.
Mr. Tracy on taking the chair, made a
few introductory remarks, thanking the
Convention for the honors conferred up
on him, and upholding President John
son and his policy of administration.
Ex-Governor William F. Johnston ad
dressed the Convention as follows:
Governor William F. Johnston, of Al
legheny, said that they came together
in convention for the purpose of pcrfect
fectiug an organization. They met to
carry into effect no political truism but
for the purpose of forming a new politi
cal organization, because the old organi
zations of the country have fallen into the
hands of men who, if they do not unite
with us iu political sentirncut, at least de
ny it for the time being. Hence there
is nothing left for the men who think as
he did, and as he trusted all men would
think, that we have but one government,
that we have but one Constitution, that
we have but one country, one set of po
litical institutions, but one future and one
destiny, but to form one great commou
Union party. Tho.sc who believe in these
rand truths must act with us. Although
they may deny tor the moment that they
are so acting, they must, because there is
no power on the face of the earth that
can destroy the unity of this great peo
pic. rApplause.'l The events of the
last five years have demonstrated this.
All the malignaut passions that
the human heart or control the human
soul were brought into action to destroy
the great living truth that we were one
people, but iailed. They ignominously
faiied, aud fell before that immortal and
glorious truth that the American people
arc one and inseparable, now and forever
There is not auy political party in this
country that must not at last come to this
platform, itemcmber that Congress, now
holding for a few days the deputed power
ot a great people, will have to come back
to the people, aud the speaker was mis
taken in the character of tho American
citizens, in the character of. the Amcri
can people, if, uext fall, they did not de
pute somebody else to do the work in a
different manner from, the way in which
it is now done. A man's association will
have uo effect. The association of a man
the brilliancy of his talents, his loud
mouthed professions of patriotism wili
avail him nothing. His acts will be crit
icised, and if he has acted so as to in
fringe upon the unity of this great gov
crnmcut and this great people, the voice
of the people will consign him 'to infamy,
and they will fix upon him an indelible
mark of public stigma from which he
can never csfape. Applause.
The men who to day in the nation's
Congress are advocating peculiar opinions
that must result in the dissolution and
dissovling of the great government, will
yet call upon the mountains to cover them
and their acts, and the people will clamor
for their destruction as loudly as they
demand justice on the heads of the men
who raised their musket and aimed a das
gerat the liberties of the country.
Governor Johnston desired to be under
stood. AVith the majority of the mem
bers of Congress he had uo personal dif
ference. With them he had the same
political creed, and his vote aud voice
aided in placiug them in power as the
representatives of a great political truth.
To carry that truth into effect it is not
necessary that the government should be
disrupted; it is not necessary that this
overnraent should be divided; it is not
necessary that the Constitution which our
fathers made should be dismembered, but
thatweshould be restored toa common and
J he men who were elected to carry out
tli is truth have nlaced themselves in op
position to it. They have assumed a po
sition of hostility to the Constitution and
the unity of this govertmcnt. l ne cnecK

United States, a man from Pennsylvania,

This is the teaching of the majority in
Congress. It must be overthrown. The
day has come when men must not act
with the collar of party upou tneir necKs
and in the leading strings and harness of
sectionalism, but they must act upon con
victiou and declare their convictions by
their votes and actions. But individua
action is of little importance in influenc
in' the masses of the people at the ballot-
box. Organized action is always neces
sary for the purpose of carrying great po
litical trusts into effect. Governor John
ston advocated the thorough organization
of the convention and the extension of
tho organization throughout the State
The issue will be successfully waged by
the friends of tho President lor the 1-ou
stitution and the government of these
States as they existed prior to the rebel
lion. The union of the States as they
existed heretofore should exist now, puri
tied by the results of this great contest, o
this awful -and ternhc war which swep
iuto the depth of oblivion the doctrine o
secession and the iniquity of human slave
ry upon which it was founded.
We stand to-day a free people, under
a government that docs not recognize the
bondage of a human being ; under a gov
-eminent that has asserted and maintained
its own powers against the rebellion that
tried to destroy it. These heresies m
politics, these heresies in morals, this out
rage upon religion, liberty and right have
all been swept away from the country by
the great war that has established the na
tionality and the power of this people.
Wc now stand with a purified Coustitu
tion, which requires no rending or amend
ment at the hands of any political taction
at this hour.
Mr. McDowell, of Dauphin county,
moved that a committee of thirteen, with
ex-Governor Johnston as chairman, be
appointed to report resolutions for the
consideration of the meeting. Agreed

After a recess about half an hour the
Convention re-assembled, and the com
mittee reported a series of resolutions exr
pressing the sense of the Convention.
Whereas it is expedient and properatthis
time that the friends of the national admin
istration and supporters of the policy it has
adopted in relation to the restoration of the
States to full and equal membership in the
natioaal Union, should declare their views
and organize themselves for mutual advice,
support, and action; therefore
Resolved, That this convention re-affirm
the doctrines and principles enunciated by
the Baltimore convention, and that we be
lieve, as there declared, that tho war was
prosecuted for the purpose of preventing the !
dissolution of the Union.
Resolved, That inasmuch as the war pros
ecuted by the government was successful,
the States recently in rebellion are still in
the Union, and are, therefore, under the Con
stitution entitled to representation in the
Senate and House of Representatives, and
that there can "be no compromise or settle-,
rnent of tho questions now agitating the
country untd such representation is accorded,
provided always that none other than loy
al men are entitled to seats in either house.
Re-o'ivcd, That the political and social
welfare of the national republic is based up
on and bound up with the prosperity of our
home labor, and we look upon the protection
of the industrial interests of the country
agricultural, mining, manufacturing, and
commercial agiiinst the antagonistic and

Resolved, Tint the country owes a debt
of gratitude to the soldiers and sailors who
composed the army and navy of the United
States in the recent war for the suppression
of the rebellion against the government, and
that their wiJowsand children are the wards
of the people, and as such should ever he pro
vided for by the government.
Resolved, That that convention proceed to
the organization recommended by the appoint
ment of a central executive committee, to
consist of thirteen members, which commit
tee shall have authority o call meetings, se
lect speakers, and generally to do all things
essential to the success of the administration ot

shall be appointed by the clubs hereafter

CLUBS" shnll be formed in each school dis

A Good Hint.
It is well known by all hay-rakers, that
the soles of boots or shoes, in the hot dry
weather during haying, becomes smooth
as glass, and full as uncertain for a foot
hold, as well as dangerous on the top of
a load, or iu ascending aud descending
the mows. Now, to remedy this evil, I
takes the soles from a pair of cast off rub
ber shoes and tack them to the bottoms
of my boots. Since this has been my
practice, I have at all times known where
to fiud my feet when I put them down.
