THE Nashua Pout eays, Mrs. Vails Of Fredericksburg, fell on ths iM, last week, and broke her leg. Conjugal.—Judge Rarker, of Du-. bsque, was married last week, to Mrs. Mary Hatch, of Y. State. We hope Darker isn't as impartial in love, as he is on the bench. Vf^Coiipi.ETKi).—The M. E. Church St Newel's Ford i* so far completed as to be used with temporary Heats. They havo concluded to hold until better times for the dedication. Mrs. AI Y STANTON ad vices young roen iu choosing a wife to examine their tectli. We think the advice good, for we have seeu some wives mad enough to "chaw off" their husband's ears. REMARKA Getting BETTER.—Georgia Lee, son of Elder Left, of this city, who was injured a few weeks Bince by falling on the Ice, is recovering, and it is thought will soon be about again, though not yet able to walk. Gratified.—Tho democratic press arq much pleased to see Butler, Dawes & Co., throw mud at each other. Well, gentlemen, go back a few years, and see the harmonious democracy at Charleston. How's that for jui'ling each othwra noses? Still RUNNING.—We learn, Indi rectly, that "Pap" 111 Id ret is still running the Charles City Intelligen cer. Since wis compared him to David of Dubuque he has soured on us, and we are not favored with his lively blr. We are willing to bs for given "Pap!" The Waverly licpublican vouches for the following good note: "Every thing was in readiness for the mar riage of a young lady near this city, but the groom came not. After hoUrs It of llliv letlU'tll tip ... tip ivithiii i-acli of waiting a dispatch was re- ceived, which rea«l: 'Have to wait till next week nay wife has overhauled m®.'

Are they quite sure that Miss DickiuM)n will vote the demo cratic ticketHow s that gentle Anna? And how ubout ilrs.Stowe? Aud how about George Franc's Train and other ladies we might mention. MKETINU OF THE CEDAR FALLS FARMERS Ci.ri).—A meeting for the organization of a fanners club in this city, was held nt Council rooms last Saturday. 8. H. Itownd was elected temporary chairman, and Iiobt. Spear Secretary Pro ton. The per manent organization was deferred until the next meeting. A commit tee of three was appointed to draft Constitution and Ity-laws. The subject for next meeting (to morrow afternoon, Feb. 12th, at 1 o clock) "What la the best method of raising corn." Farmers turn out! For the Gazette. REVIVAL AT PAitKERSBUfte.—— Still the work goes ou. tfhowcre of divine grace aud mercy, are be ing poured down upon us. From thirty to forty anxious enquirers after salvation throng the altar every Evening. Many have found peace In believing, uud some have expe rienced the blessings of perfect love. "Blessings aud glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, aud power, and might be unto our Ood forever and ever. Amen." J. A. KERR, Pastor. Feb. 2 1870. «fcii '5 B0GK8 THE followiug urgent appeal to debtors appears in the Hampton Free Press of last week To MY PATKONH.—Dear friends, for several mouths I have had a stand lug advertisement in this paper ask ing and pleading for a little assist ance iu time of need but I change tho call this week. I have lately had a splendid stroke of good luck, namely: got into debt $1,'»00, ami am now prepared to lend you all any amount you may ask. Come, call at the office and get your orders cashed. P. H.—This only applies to tho«e who have owed me nearly a yeur, aud have forgotten It. No money to lend good customers. Overtook Him.—One Lowls Mill er, who has resided at Shell Hock, of late, concluded to seek other quarters OEDAR FALLS, FEBRUARY 11,1870. for spending the remaining days of his sojourn on thin |l«net, Pkicnonal.—1j. II. Raymond of the Hampton /Vce Prow gravo the Qakf:tti-:ofllce a call last Monday. quently, last Tuesday, or Wednesday, h« bid adieu to the classic shades of Hhell Roi-k, leaving some uundjusted balances In favor of Stewart, Stod dard & Co. They look lib track to this city, sued out an attachment he fore Justice Knapp, and Marshal Royce, overtook Louis at Waterloo, and gobbled ono of his horses and brought itback. It heats everything that a gentleman can't, even, go a journey these days without so much bother I DCBUQUE AND Des nr.K.—The Chicago pa pers are copying extensively our notice of the fortieth anniversary of Mr. Schenck and lady, of this eity. They think it remarkable, In that elty of divorces. TheIOWA STATE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY.—Secretary I). W. Adams of Waukon, Iowa, requests us, and the Iowa papers generally, to state, that the "Reports" of this Society for the years 18J7-8, each make a volume of 136 pages, aud contains much matter of the greatest value to every hoiticiilturist iu the State. Among i.ther items, may be found fruit lists for the different sections of the State, and valuable essays on fruit growing ami forestry. Any citizen of loiva can procure a copy of either, or l»oth by sending postage to the Secretary. Iowa papers pletise copy. CUT LOO.sk,—a halter strap was found a few evenings since, tied to a post in town, which had been out. The circumstances attending this case, wo do not know. It may bo that the Lorse belonged to a sober man, and was cut for tho sake of do ing him that amount of injury. Hut the supposition Is that some philan thropist found tlie horse hitched in the cold, while the owner was iu a saloon, drinking and gambling, and concluded to let the poor creature go hojno. In this case, lie should have untied him, and put the strap around his neck, instead of cutting it. It is a reprehensible practice for |ieople to kt theil tca,ns sUni1 out CHICAGO PAPKKS AND NORTH WESTERN NEWS.—Some people take Chicago papers for the sake of get ting the news of tlie Northwest.— And those papers often grow elo quent over this feature of their me tropolitan sheets. The Chicago Tri bune, the "brag" sheet, In its Issue of the L'tl inst., uuder the significant head "Northwest," has one Iowa Item aud two Wiscousiu items, one of which Is a case of bastardy at Janesville, aud the other Is the all important fact, that a hen up in Polk county, "lays two eggs a day We'll bet a dozen lien's eggs, that there isn't a rooster up there that can lay two eggs a day, let ulone a lieu that is fool-hardy enough to do that kind of extra work. It's all a "buggaboo" for people to go quite so heavy on Chicago papeis for this feature of them. Tho fact is, the Dubuque, Davenport, Burlington, Des Moines, Council Bluffs, aud a good many country papers of Iowa, are a good deal better for lows peo ple than Chicago papers. FRAUD—FARMERS BEWARE.—A •et of unprincipled vagabonds are canvassing the country continually, seeking "whom they may devour," with machines of different kinds, pateut rights, and a 1001 other schemes, all calculated to swindle our liurd working, unsuspectiug farmers. Last spring a couple of these sharks traveled through Grun dy couuty, and calling on Joseph Huse, one of tlie best fellows ever buckled, made him an agent, to sei! a cer'ain seeder, and drill. He was to take five of them, sell four for the Company, and his commission on the sale of the four, was to pay, Iu fu!l, )r the fifth one, which he was to have for his own use. Mr. Huse was induced to sign a contract to this effect, but which proved to be a note of hand, for the amount the seeders retilled at. He suspected something wrong after the ahylocks were goue, and followed them into Hardin county, where they had dis posed of the note, and now he has the satisfaction of knowing lie has no redress. Farmers, give all such money-making schemes, the go by. Kick all such infamous wretches out of your yards, and then you wont sold. OF J. A.

The supervisor system may not have embraced all of these re quirements, aud amendments may have been desirable, hut It certainly is a much better system than that of commissioners.
