t&~ We nre in no way responsible for
the vie* 8 of opinions of our Correspond
Governor Chamberlain's .etter to
?euutor Morton is considered an im
portant contribution to the political
literature of the dny. The Northern
papers comment freely upon it, nnd
unhesitatingly call upon tho National
Administration to support him in the
eland he has taken. There is more
of vehement expression in this letter
than any ' pnper vo have ever read
that cmenatcd from the Governor's
pen. Whether he thought that the
occasion demanded strong language,
or that Senator Morten should be re
buked with bitter iiony, we do not
know. Of one thing, however, wo nre
certain: Governor Chamberlain is not
too cowardly to admit that the Re
publican party is in danger, nnd in
admit''ug it, writes with an unfalter
ing hand the nnmes of those who
placed it in jeopardy. The Governor
defends his course iu sharp nnd telling
sentences. While his letter dispels
all doubts about his going over to the
Democracy, and sets his record right
in the eyes of tho doubting Thomases,
it cuts like a two-edged sword into the
thick carcasses of those who arc fight
ing him. He shows rrp the enemies
of hi? administration, and exhibits
them in their naked and undisguised
deformity?a deformity repulsive to
every instinct of manhood and honor,
because it makes a jest' of honesty,
and laughs to scorn tha efforts of n
brave and resolute man fighting, al
most single-handed and alone, as
mean and infamous a band of robbers
aa ever scuttled ship or cut a throat.
The Governor says that the cry of bis
telling out his party is all gammon,
gotten up by the enemies of honest
Government to injure him. He is as
firm in his fealty to his party ns he
ever was, and equally as Bolieitions ol
its welfare, only he cannot, r.nd will
not, be forced into giving his sanction
to the plans of Republican corruption

Letter From Lewisville,
liKwrsviM.k, Ri C.
February, 2nd, 1876.
Editor Neics and Times :
I trust that I will not be consider
ed as imposing upon you by asking a
small space in your very interesting
Journal of tins week's issue, for in
these days of broad and liberal ideas
assumptions seem to predominate, let
them he never so gi\nt an imposition
upon individuals or communities.
Therefore-, I will content myself
with giving an ncco* t ofa lew things
that have rcccntl occurred in the
Town of Lewisville, which, in my
humble judgment, will be ofa inter
est to your many readers in this sec.
tion. Oc last Fridays night, by pre
vious notice, the citizens of this Town
met in mass meeting lo deliberate
upon the propriety of changing the
nhhiQ of Lewisville to that of St.
Matthews, and petitioning the Legis
lature to that end.
The meeting was called to order by
Warden Joseph IT. Lorycn, Intendant
pro hmi. A permanent organization
was efleeted by electing our cstcoin
ublc Townsman, F, J. liuyck, to the
Chair, anil our courteous friend, D.
\V. Mustard, as Secretary. The usual
carousing and pompous speech mak
ing did not attend this organization.
Marked and effective speeches were
mane by Messrs J. II. Lorycn j II. 1'.
Cookc, S. Chaplin, V. ]>. Johnson, K.
10. Clark, und others, advocating the
necessity of m aking the change in th :
name, pointing out the facts that
there is a Lewisville Post Office Ira
Chester County, and that letters fre
quently go there, greatly inconven
iencing the people of this place, and
surrounding country; that it were
easier, less, expensive, and more like
ly for the Legislature and Rail Road
Company to change the name to St.
Matthews, than the Post Office De
partment to make two offices of the
same name, in the same State. The
motion was put. and with a single
exception, unanimously carried. The
meeting then adjourned sine die.
There was another Mass meeting in
Lewisville on last Monday, called by
Mr. 0. W. Caldwell, Precinct Chair,
man. Imagine what n crowd rallied
from all corners to this call, hungry to
give vent to their lou^ pent up ejo^
q'uence* nnkious lo throw up some
past misdoings of one another, wait
ing an opportunity lo bring to an ac
counting some one or another, for
something already ended, and, last of
all, to hear and learn the issues of the
day, ami finally to make selections.
But imagine the dismal consequences;
behold the drooping countenances,
dispel! :d from anxiety and opportuni
ty, when our popular Precinct Chair
man, who had boon elected permanent
Chairman to preside over the meet
ing, statu! that the object of the call
of the meeting was purely charitable!
That is to say, it was called to take
into consideration the obvious duty
of every person to aid Mr. Abrain
Fludd, who has suffered greatly in
consequence of his recent losses by
fire. It is just to say, however, that
the Chairman deserves great credit
for this call, aud, moreover, that the
Chairman, Mr. II. Jefferson, and a few
others whose ham es 1 am not in pos
session of, nobly advocated charity
from a'l to aid in the cause. After
receiving a little cash, and the signa
tures ol a great many to a paper
w hich embodied a promise to pay in
the future, the meeting adjourned.
The political phase of the day dwind
led down to small groups about Town ,
who amused themselves in discussing
the disappoi n (ments of the day, and
the future of the Republican parly in
this County. The rain dispersed thorn
at :i hi tu hour. Our farmers were
sorely in need of a good, refreshing
shower. Do not t , ink, though, Mr
JCditor, that wc have suffered here for
good season;- because of our sin fulness.
That cannot he laid tit our door. Wc
are as pious and amiable as any
people in the Mate, and never, no
never, have any of us <hccn caught
taking a glass of I tiger on Sunday
preparatory to going to Church. The
fact ol' it is, [wc arc ahead of you all
in a great many things. Wo have
?Town lamps which wc keep lighted
of dark nights. Von have some, hut
they can only bo. scon in the day time.
So you see, Ornngcburg may plant
and Lrnm-h villo may water, hut. the
light, aft or all, must come from Lewis
Wo hear deep rumors of the
probability of Mackcy's being boat
next lime. A certain young man is
out against him for Congress.
The London Rothschild ia dead,
nnd every poor devil of nn cdiior re
marks with snt.slied complacency
that "money could not save him/
Poverty don't save a man either.
A dispatch from Washington dated
27th January, states that ex-Senator
Sawyer has been indicted for fraud,
for assisting the passage of the fraudu
lent cotton claims hei ctoforo noticed,
which will likely send tlic gentleman
to tho penitentiary.
The Cincinnati Enquirer Buys that
ihe Sun will he the religious organ of
New York inside of a year. This
cheering prophecy would indiente
that all the Christians will he out ?f
tho city by that time, or that Dana
intends to become a ehristian.
"To be or not to be," that's* the
question at Washington, concerning a
war with our Spanish friends on the
other side of the big pond. Proba
bly "not," though there has been con
siderable mutual growling lately by
the two nations, over Cuban affairs.
Pay You it Dkotb.?The ability of
nearly every man lo pay his debts de
pends upon bis ability to c< licet debts
due him. The individuals of a com
munity are linked together by a chain
of debts and credits; and in a '.imc of
depression the refusal ofa person to
discharge a single liability often em
barrasses a line of a dozen debtors
and creditors. Hence the prompt
payment of small debts becon.es n
public as well as a private duty. The
same money that has pjujLjr debt in
the morning may pi;**^ftlozcn before
night; and twelve men are thus reliev
ed ot anxiety and pressure by this
payment of otic obligation. Pay your
