Iii hopes to induce every Democrat in (he county, not already rx : subset ibcr, to take our paper, at least during tho canv paign, wc propose to send the enlarged J-Vccnuui fur twelva weeks, commencing with the next or following issue, to any nddiess on the receipt of fifty cents. Who will be the first among our friends to get tis up a list of campaign subscribers? A VOUSTIXR TICKET. The Radicals of Cambria county, tired of a square fight against the Democrats, are endeavoring to reach the county ofiiccs by a flauk movement that is, neither more nor less, than by getting a volunteer ticket of Democrats into the field, and dividing the Democratic vote, and thus, between the opposing factions,, elect a Radical ticket. A pretended Wilmore Democrat, who styles himself ''Anthro pon," harps on this string in the Johns town 2'riluue ; and he must excuse us for believing that he is neither a Wilmoreao i jr a Democrat, but a Johnstown radical. Four years ago the little borough of Wilmore presented a candidate for Treas urer, and he was nominated the Ebens burg delegates voting for him, against an excellent man of their own. Hence. Wil more has no claims now, and should feel grateful to Ebensburg ; therefore, " An thropon," we think, is not a Wilmoreaa. Jle publishes his communication in the Tribune, a radical paper a paper which rails Democrats "copperheads," "rebel pympatLisers," and the like whereas, if he had been a Democrat, ho would have eent it to the Democrat or Freeman, either of which Democratic organs would have published it. Therefore "Anthropon" is not n Democrat. The Democratic Convention met on the fullest notice. Every district in tbecoun ty vas represented by true Democrats of th:ir own choofeing. The Convention was harmonious no charge of fraud or corruption. Every candidata was. fail ly i.omiuated. It i3 not pretended to be de tiled that the candidates all come up to the Jcfiersonian te-et all "honest and ca pable." Rut "Anthropon" sympathises with the large Townships rCarrolI, Clear field, Allegheny and Washington. They have more Democratic votes than Johns town and Ebensburg, even with Wilmore added. Rut these large Democratic dis tricts got what they wanted. It is true, one of these townships Washington presented a most excellent man for Sheriff. Jut Allegheny, Clearfield and Carroll preferred another, as they had a right to do. None of the large districts had a candidate for Treasurer, and their dele gates were divided. . So were the Ebens burg delegates, one voting for Cox, one for Kinkcad, and two for M'Colgan. " More than this, the candidates were all nominated by the country districts, and if they are satisfied, .radicals in Johnstown or Wilmore need not complain. Our 'tickets are never nominated With a view to the wishes of the radicals. A .Demo crat who would have objected to Mr. WCreight, as a nominee, that ho lived in Johnstown, or to Mr. M'Colgan that lie Uved in Wilmore, or to Jndge Kinkead that he lived iu Ebensburg, might think himself a good Democrat, but we fail "to "see it."' .' V " ' 4 ' ' " O, no, Ht. "Anthropon," you are only damaging Michael M'Colgan, Esq.,-and other Democrats,' by dating your radical document at Wilmore. He and his friends do not sympathise with you, and can only See in this an opening to let the radicals into power. t : ; Already they are striving to amalgat mate a ticket at Johnstown, to be called a. "New County Ticket," or any ether name that will damage the Democracy.' .No objection is made to any of the candidates, as to qualifications. They have all been nominated precisely in ac cordance with the" usages of the Demo cratic party, as pursued for the last thirty years in Cambria county. Whenever the Democratic masses -desire it th?s system will be changed until then Democratic nominations, when fairly made, will be successful, as they always have been in the past ; and woo to the Democrat who seeks, by dividing the serried columns of his party, to place radicalism in power in Cambria county. ISROTIIERLXX12 A.n JURIES. The editor of the "Radical and Whi" is a funny old cuss. He wants to know if it requires more than twelve to consti tute a jury ia Cambria county? Cer tainly,-, t he kind of juries that he has had most business before the Grand Jury consists of twice that number. It. didn't require any traverse jury during the war, as Muttary Commissions did the business, but in Cambria eounty a. traverse jury has always consisted "of twelve. Mr. 15. "asks for information" a thing he very much needs and we have given it to him. Ry the way, since our friend lias, in addition to the R. R., been dubbed 11. II., or Register in Rankruptcy, he has taken a new name, to please the appointing power, and put "Radical" as the first 'name to his paper. Now the old name of Whig, which at one time we sported in common with John, represented a conservative organi zation, and John finds this will no longer do ; and as fond as he is of riding two horses at the same time, even when ' they travel in opposite directions, he ought, for shame, to drop the "Whig" when he assumes the "Radical," as the one is pre cisely a contradiction 'of the other. A whie blackbird would be juBt as appro priate as a Radical Whi. Indeed, in his local column John drops the Whig and goes the Radical clean or rather dirty and promises "several sup plementary Whigs during the campaign." Rut it's no nse reasoning with the Regis ter in Rankruptcy. We can't convince him, and he can't be got under conviction, unless "by twelve," Mrs. Scrratt. Even the Evening Bulletin admits there is great doubt as to the guilt of the 'unfortunate woman who was murdered at Washington two years sipro, and who-je doom was then 'by loyal folks thought a just one. Iv-on the fiul it'tin is shocked nt the story which is just now put in circulation that David Hun ter's bloody tribunal formally recommend ed! to the President to commute M.s. Surratt's punishment, and that their recommendation was suppressed and with held from Mr. Johnson. lie never saw it or heard of it- Who suppressed it? Who withheld it? These questions must be a nswercd. The Military Commission was a devise of the War Department. Stanton and Holt contrived it. Their judgment and, of course, their recommen dation went to the War Department. the ar Department must know all about it. Let it speak. One other wit ness there was, but his lips are scaled. The oozo of tha bottom of the Hudson covers him. This, was Seward's friend Preston King. He it was. who, in the dark interval between Mrs. Surratt's sen tence and execution, kept guard at the White iIouse.: : He repelled the weeping daughter. He denied all access to the Executive. And the day of doom came, and the bolt wa.' drawn and the manacled woman foil "six feet," and died with a broken neck or congested brain ; and a few weeks later, the man who barred the gates of mercy, threw himself otf a Jersey City ferry boat, and, with loaded pockets and a conscience burdened, sank to -the bottom of the river. But Holt and Stan ton still live to tell what became of the recommendation to mercy I Phil. Aje. ohn Albert. Esn. . of Greenville T&h. non county, has in possession a chicken, which was hatched on his premises, hav ing four fully developed legs and. feet. Those supernumerary members, which proceed from the body, independently from the other legs and . posterior to . them, manifest a slight motion when the chicken move, but do not assist in walking ; they do not touch the ground, but stand hori zontally indirection to the length of the body. - Thi3 monstrosity in the feathered race is thought to be a Singular curiosity not often, met with, .

The boilers in the Fulton cotton mill, at Lancaster, Pa., exploded on the morn ing of the 13th ins,, demolishing a great part cf the building and killing some nine of the operatives and injuring several oth ers.

The Lancaster Express, a Radical sheet, says that Thad Stevens had bought lots in several cemeteries, but finding that there were not "any of God'a children" buried in them, he cancelled his purchases. A "copperhead" organ remarks , that "He seems to think as little of his grave as he does of lus bed." r - In Mexico negroes vote and possess equality, and what is the state of affairs ? continual revolutions, conspiracies and wars. Neither property nor life has been at any time Fccurc in that country since the enfranchisement of the blacks. Mon grelism has cursed Mexico as it will curse the United States unhsi the Radical party schemers fcLall be controverted. . A man named O'Neill, says the Ve nango Sji-ciafor of the 12th, employed on the Allegheny Valley R. R., was drown ed near the mouth of Pij Scrubgrass, on SaturJay last,', hilst attempting to ford the rivcr. on horseback. His body, was re covered the same day. " Another man, name unknown, was drowned whilst bathing near the same place, half an hour afterward. -Immediately succeeding the surren der of the city cf Mexico.. Gen. IJaez, the Juarist 'commander, ordered the nuns to vacate the convents within forty-eight hour, and, in accordance with the order, on the 23d of June the eight hundred and sixty nuns were driven out. Henceforth, it i3 said, there are to be no more convents in Mexico. This is tho "liberal" course pursued, by the self-styled "Liberal party" of Mexico. : ': A terrible murder was perpetrated about midnight on Friday last, in Spring field, IU. An industrious and . sober laborer, by tho name of John Graham, beat out the brains of his wife while she was asleep. When arrested, he confessed the murder, said he was drunk when he committed the deed, but . was jealous of his wife and wanted to get rid of her. They have been married about ten years, and have four young children. Graham heretofore bore a good character. Water is purified by a French chem ist by. using alum. Ha states that two grair.3 of alum to a pint of water will clarify water which is unfit to" drink, and the taste of the alum will not bo perceiv ed. Another French chemist, in Algiers, shows that muddy water will became drinkable in the course of from seven to seventeen minutes, by. adding half a grain of potlassi alum to every quart of water. Ten years ago a citizen of St, Louis county, Missouri, made a will, in which ho provided that certain of his flaves, ten in number, sliould each receive five hun dred dollars on condition of their emigra ting to Liberia, or "such other country as might be set apart for free persons of color," The legatees have never gone to Liberia, but they havo sued for their mon eyand got it, on the ground that Missouri was "such other .country," ' &c, '. Stnall, but Characteristic, We think'it is justifiable, says the Pitts burgh Post, to charge that the attempt of some Radical editors to traduce the char acter of Judge Sharswood, and to raise up a personal prejudice among the people is unworthy of honorable men. We have no right to- expect anything -else,- for the game has been invariably pursued against' every democratic candidate, no matter how virtuous or upright. Rut we have a right to protest against ii, and to give it its right name. We are a w are that it is unreasonable to look for a twenty-inch shell to proceed out of the moutli of a', four-inch piece. Things must work, of course, according to their - calibre. The idea designed to be conveyed by these editors, to the popu lar mind, is something deemed by them very prejudicial to the character of Judge Sharswood.:. They would teach that Judge Sharswood is in favor of something that will injure the people ; whereas it is im possible for a' fair man, like him, to enter tain or sanction any such thing. These editors know better. They know that he is not the sort of man they are endeavor ing by ingenious, but sophistical represen tations to make him appear. They cite a bgal opinion given by him several years ago in the performance of his professional duties as proof that he would do something that would injure his fellow .citizens. This is not only nnju3t, but it is false. The- sum and substance - of Judge Sharswood's opininon referred to, in com mon sense language i?, that men should fairly abide by fair contracts ; and that if ft man makes a bargain to pr.y for a hone or a horse in gold, he ought to pay it in gold, or it? equivalent. And this is precise ly the sort of justice that ought to prevail between man and man. We would be loath to believe that the Republican candi date, Judge Williams, would advocate or sustain a contrary doctrine. Go on Radicals ; you think the people are so easily gulled. We think you will find out pretty soon that you : have made a slight mistake, . Reing small, it is, of course, of no great conscqueuce. You can take your time to correct it.
