HORSES STOLES —On the evening of the

Valley, one from Seth F. Meyers and the oth

FIRE. —The Rolling mill part of the Juniata
Iron Works near Alexandria, owned by S. 4
B. R. Hatfield, was destroyed by fire between
11 and 12 o'clock on Sunday night last. How
tha fire originated is no* known. Tbe loss is
considerable, but covered by insuranc.—
EXTENSIVE ART-GALLERY. —Next to the
Bible, no book is more useful than Webster's
Dictionary. The Unabridged is an extensive
art-gallery , containing over three thousand
engravings, representing almost every animal,
insect, reptile, implement, plants, etc.,
which we know anything about. It is a vast
library, giving information on almost every
mentionable subject. It indeed has been well
remarked that it is the most remarkable com
pendium of human knowledge in ourlanguage.
CALISATA BARK. —It is said that Messrs.
Drake 4 Co., (proprietors of the PLANTATION
BITTERS) arc the largest importers ofCalisaya
Bark in th ; s country, and that, with the ex
ception of an occasional sale, all they import
is used in the compounding of their celebra
ted PLANTATION BITTERS, —to which they un
doubtedly are indebted for their wonderful
health restoring properties. As a Tonic and
Appetizer they are not surpassed, and we
cheerfully recommend tbem. All first-clas-
Druggists keep them for sale.
ALISMA. —Last week we called attention to
the Constitution Bitters of Seward, Bently &
Cbenev, and now we take pleasure in noticing
their Alisma for the hair, which is said to be
a very fine article for the toilet. We are of
the opinion that the preparations of S. 4 B.
are all good, for the reputation they sustain
as Druggists is good evidence that they would
not put anything in the market of an ordinary I
character. Messrs. have it for sale and
we hope all our friends will try it.

HIGHWAY BOBBERY. —A man named Valen
tine was robbed on the mountain near Mc
Connelaburg, on Friday evening a week. It
is reported that he was out buying cattle, and
meeting a man on the road, inquired where
cattle could be obtained. In reply he was
told to lake a certain road leading off the
main road on which he was traveling. He
did so, but bad not gone far before be was

demanded the surrender cf his money. He

walking, the engineer continually whistling,
and even reversing his engine. Seeing that
tbe boy would not heed, he got from bis seat
on to the cow catcher, and caught tbe boy in
his arms, ere the engine could touch him, and
thus saved his life.

CoNGKERSIOSAI. SATRAPT, OR PARTT DES
POTISM. — To the Inquirer.— The ambitious
Congressman. who conceited the idea of con
trolling all the minor appointments in his dis
trict. has doubtless received the thanks of all
his fellow members, but we assure hiui and
bis less ambitious colleagues that he deserves
and is receiving the curses of all the honest
paople. A more infamous piece of party
despotism has never been conceived, or hav
ing been conceived, has never been.inaugu
rated in this country. It could only be the
conception of a brain capable of the most
reckless and unscrupulous intrigues where
with to enable h.m to fortify himself against
the masses of the people. No honest and
taithful Representative, who is willing to sub
mit his actions in the National Legislature to
the masses, confident of the honesty of his iu
tentions, and with abiding faith in big constit
uents, wuold desire such arbitrary power.
If the opponents of the Republican party
had designed to introduce a system of Con
gressional interference with the rights of the
people for the purpose of bringing about the
disolutioa of the Republican party, they
could uot have hit upon a more effective plan
for the destruction of their great rival than
this system of Congressional satrapy. And I
have no hesitation in saying that it is the duty
of the Republican party to resist this species
of political despotism wherever found and in
whatever shape it presents itself. The Re'
publican party has distinguished itself from
all other parties since the days of the Revo
lution for its pure Republicanism, and shall
it, the most Democratic of all parties, 6ubmil
to a party despotism as absolute as the will
of the Autocrat of ull the Russi&s? The peo
ple can alone and must correct this tendency
to party centralization.
With the present system no man, however
worthy or deserving he may be, can secure an
appointment to the most tnfflmg Post Office,
Asaessorship, Collectorsbip, Whiskey Inspec
torship, Marshalship, Ac., Ac., unless he re
ceives the recommendation of the Congres
sional Satrap. And no inaa is appointed un
less be is willing "to do him reverence."
He that is worthy and deserving, if unwilling
to "fall down and worship the golden calf,"
must stand aside aud make room for some
one who will yield the Satrap obedience and
when the time comes bring about bis polities'
salvation. Here and there mny be an excep
tion to this tule but in the main it is correct.
A gentleman may stand in the way of the Sa
trap and to remove the obstruction he may be
appointed to an office of honor and profit
without debasing himself, but this is the only
The people have a right to say who shall
be their inferior as well as their superior ser
vants. What Republican has ever voted for
a member of Congress with the distinct under
standing that he was to be the party Gover
nor of the district electing him ? What right
has he to say over and above the people who
elected him, who shall serve them in less re
sponsible positions? lie is a mere servant,
and sometimes a bad one; what right has
he to set himself up as a master over the pro
pie who have invested him with a ''little
brief authority' - ?
As an illustration of this system : Several
persons are applicants for some trifling ap
pointrnent in a village fifty, sixty, or seventy
miles from theSa'rap. Oae of them at least
is "honest and capable," and he receives the
voice of the people, but he does not fully
come up to the Congressional qualification,
he is not willing to debase himself by
swearing eternal fealty to the Satrap, there
fore, the voice of the people must be disre
garded and some political trickster, or chron
ic office-seeker, who ba3 been on all sides of
all questions, arid ready to do the dirty work
of any person, is selected. The people are
outraged, the party is brought into disrepute
publican party the watch words of Liheity
throughout the world are made to sutler.
I have bpen led to speak thus plainly to my
Republican friends in regard to the political
iniquity which is perpetrated by unscrupulous
Congressmen, who hare usurped all the pow
ers which the people have heretofore exer
cised. for the purpose of putting them on their
guard. These suggestions are general, in the
future I may be led to particularize. The
"pin sticking" business, without any reference
to the will of the people, must be bronght to
a close or the people must exercise the power
which a vpsted in tbem and reject their des
potic servants. J. R. DURBORROW.

HORRIBLE DEATH.— The Fulton Repub.
lican says: Henry Spanuuth, who lived two
miles west of M Connellsburg, died on last
Sunday morning of the loathsome disease ol
glanders. Mr. S., it is said, has been
dealing in glandered horses for the last few
years, and several have died for him. About
a week ago he took sick, and since that time
to his death developed this offensive and
dangerous disease in all its forms. Mr. S.
has still a few horses that have been kept
with the diseased ones, and common prudence
would dictate to his relatives and friends that
some disposition be made of them as soon ai
ROBBERY. —Some thieves entered tbe store
c f Johnston 4 Wattson, in Smith's new
building, in this place, last night, aud stole a
large quantity of silks and other fine dry
govds, trimmings, gloves, 4c. They effected
an entrance through the back window by bor
ing through the shutter with bits that were
stolen from the blacksmith shop of Shoerna
ker 4 Gahegan, the same night. The propri
etors have not made an tstimate ot the
amount stolen, but as the-goods were among
the best the sum must be considerable. Ef
fot ta are being made to apprehend the thieves.

the character of the work.
The message of the President, delivered
to Congress, in December, I SCO, had an
effect which lias tint been duly appreciated
in history, and which was scarcely teeogniz

Buchanan was timid, secretive, ingenious;
one of those time serving politicians, who
had managed to keep constantly in public
life, not an o-tt ntatious partisan, but a trsdi-1
tional office-holder, an "old public luic I

traordinary successes in the political arcia
without the force of merit and through tic
sheer ingenuity of the demagogue. He had

For Diseases of the. Throat and Lungs, such
as Coughs. Colds, Whooping Cough,
Bronchitis, Asthma , and
Prol/alily never before in the whole history of
medicine, has anything won so widely and so
deeply upon the confidence of mankind, as this
excellent remedy for pulmonary complaints.
Tbrongh a long series of years, ana among most
of the rases of men it has risen higher and higher
in their estimation, as it has become better known.
Its uniform character and pow tr to cure the vari
ous affections of the lungs and throat, bare made
it known as a reliable protector against them.
While adapted to milder forms of disease and to
young children, it is at the same time the meat
effectual remedy that can be given for incipient
consumption, and the dangerous affections of the
threat and lungs. A.s a provision against sadden
attacks of Croup, it should be kept on band in ev
ery family, and indeed as all aie sometimes sub
ject to colds and eoaghs, ail should be provided
with this antidote for them.
Although settled consumption ia thought incur
able, still great numbers of cases where the dis
ease seemed settled, have been completely cu.cd
and the patient restored to sound health by the
Cherry Pectoral. So complete is its mastery over
the disorders of the Lungs and Throat, that the
most obstinate of them yield to it. When nothing
else could reach them, under the Cherry Pectoral
they subside and disappear.
Singerß and public speakers find great protec
tion Lom it.
Asthma is always relieved and often wholly
cured by it.
Bronchitis is generally cured by taking tha
Cherry Pectoral in small and frequent do3e.
So generally are its virtues known that we need
not publish the certificates of them here, or do
more than assure the public that its qualities ara

As its name implies, it does CURE, and doe,
not fail. Containing neither Arsenic, Quinines
Bismuth, Zinc, nor any other mineral or poison
ous sub&tance whatever, it in nowise injures any
patient. The number and importance of its cures
in the ague districts, are literally beyond account

acknowledgments wo receive of the radical cures
effected in obstinate cases, and where other reme
