The admission fees will be very reasonable and almost everybody will bo able to pav the small sum for a ticket. Secondly, the worth of their money will be fully repaid by one of the rich est and best conducted performances ever given in this or neighboring towns.

We had a prosperous journey of three and a half days and two nights, and were met at Bridgewater hy Mi.Henry Bollinger, who lives about two and a half miles from that place. Mr. Bol linger has a nice farm of 100 acres, well stocked, with a small but comfort able house and all the necessary out buildings erected thereon. lie clerks in his brothei's hardware store, while his sons work the farm. The land in Dakota is very nice and Mike it ever so much. We are out prospecting for land daily, but can not obtain any Gov ernment land for homesteading ; claims can be bought however at from three to eight hundred dollars and deeded lands from £lO to £SO. None of our party have any land as yet. 1 shall shortly commence to work at ray trade and in the meantime watch a chance to secure a tract of land. Ilad I £SOO at command those of my friends in Millheim who only gave mo tlnce weeks and others who would have me back hy campraeeting, would for once be disappointed. Should I turn ray face eastwaid again from this paradise of the world, it would be only because I can not secuie a tract of land owing to my limited finances. Had I to-day five-hundred dollars, I would invest in a claim, and in a year it would double itself. As it is, I shall not give up the ship, until I am, of sheer necessity o bliged to do so. If any of my friends have SSOO at six per cent, to send to me, I'll guarantee them a' safe invest ment, and show by my works that I have stdl ambition enough in me to live and work in Dakota, and, if God so orders it,die in this beautiful land. 11. 11.

Dr. Kessler's Celebrated English Cough 3/edicino is especially deserving praise in this class of complaints. It never fails! It never disappoints!

The evidence thus far adduced lit the Kellogg case would be most damaging were the culprit any other than Kell ogg, but in a land where courts are or ganized to acquit, who shall say that the jury shall be compelled to give weight to any amount or character of testimony? What a terrific mountain of evidence was piled up against the Star-route cabal, and how easily was it all swept aside through tiio agency of political inlliienee! The point-blank testimony of Price in the case of Kell ogg, starts him out with $20,000 receiv ed for his influence as a Senator in the expediting of two routes in Louisiana and Texas. Price dared not. or at any rate did not approach Bradly with his money, but ho boldly went to Kellogg and offered him the $20,000 to boss the job with Brady, which Kellogg agreed to do, and finally did do to the eminent satisfaction of Price whose pay was tbCU increased from $2.7:13 to S2s.4OJ on one route,and from $7,35() to $22,307 on the other. It will probably not dis tuibthe serenity of Mr. Bradly to be advised that Price swears that this money was to be divided between him stfif and Kellogg,and it only remains to be discovered from the testimony of Mr. Walsh, the broker in the case, whether the money was so paid, and if so paid—what are you going to do about it ? 1 don't know what the line of Kell ogg's defence is to be, but it is highly probable that his council will contend that it was a perfectly legitimate trans action throughout, and will place his client upon the country with the plea that they all do it. The movement in behalf of revenue reform inaugurated in New York the other day, has done much toward en couraging. Mr. Morrison in pushing his bill to a speedy,if not a completely suo eesstul conclusion. There is no mistak ing the fact that the present majority in the House are going to do their part toward lightening the burdens upon the people by reducing to the lowest possi ble limit those taxes that have boon imposed by reason of -tho war. It is a matter of detail only upon which the Democratic members arc disagreed, for Mr. Randall himself has repeatedly de clared himself in fayor of the identical propositions embodied in the New York resolutions. No one knows any better than Mr. Morrison,that human ingenuity is not capable of devising a measure that will subserve every local interest in the country, and if Ohio wool and Pennsylvania pig-iron and Louisiana sugar and Maine hackme tack and Massachusetts calico can not look out for themselves when it comes to. Congressional action, it will be of no use to try to find anybody to look out for tbem. * PHONO. MARRIED. On the 27th ult., at Centre Hall, bv Rev. W. E.
