When clunya like this occur in ntwspapcr-i.it has long been the custom for the incowiug occupant of the chair editorial to present to the readers of the paper hia views, together with promises of the great thing that he will do in the future, etc. However, it It nut necessary (or us to do either o f dicsa things, for eur readers are not al together unacquuiuted with m, and in the year and a half of our previous ac. .pamtance, the views, of the paper were well known, aud the object of the pub lisher fully kUted, yet we well know that the paper needs the free and fall support of its friends, and without their, support and good wishes the most un tiring industry of the publisher, will be useless. The principles of the ADToCATKjwil be strictly Republican, yet while endeav or to make it an organ of this party, we will only do so by a calm, considerate, presentation of our views, on all topic that may interest our readers, avoiding i ll bitter personalities and unjust criti cism. We intend rather to issue a sheet '.hut will support Republicanism, and ,it the tanie time I of such a nature that our Democratic friends will take it because we try to present our views iu the light of principle and not oT ridicule. Ajratu, we shall eudeavor to make the Advocate the local paper of the county, and ill older to carry out our design iu tliis direction we ask I'uui our friends 'u different parts ol the county, c mimu- nications that may teem to be of local interests, even if the communications arc uot in readiness for the pres3, so the facts are stated wo will arrange them, and uuy of ouv iriends who will send us items ol' local interest will plate us uti der obligations to them for so doing. In conclusion, we vat the matter with our friends, feeling thai the Advocate can be made one of the best local papers in the country, and be established on a firm basis, besides he.lpiug to develope the vast resources of our county. Ve :ibk your support and good wishes, t.n i in return it shall be our higher aim to publish :i paper ihat will receive a Welcome in every household iu the county, Truly yours, IJt.nhy A. Pahsons, Ja. Rc7 to Vote. The Constitutional Convention has deteisiined to prevent fraud at elections and has adopted to Mint end, the following method: ' All electious of tho citizens shall bo Ly ballot; every ballot voted shall he uumbeied in '.he order iu which it is re deived, and the number recorded by the electiou officer opposite the name of the elector who presents tho ballot. Each elector shall endorse his name upon his ballot or cause it to be indorsed thereou, or attested by another "elector of the dis riet who shall not be au election officer ttiid the oath prescribed for the election ollieers shall require seerecy as to the contents of eyery ballot east at the elec tion. 2egrms at Washington. The present session of Congiess promises to be a fruitful one in reforms. Inde pendent of tke abolition of the franking privilege there is now a fair prospect that a stinging rebuke will be adminis tered to two of the worst practices of the nineteenth century; viz: the pur chase of Senatorial seats and the sale of Congressional and Senatorial votes. Last week, it will be recollected, that the Caldwell investigating Com mittee reported thut that worthy was not duly elected a 4 Senator by the Kansas Legislature. The iufereuee is thut money has been used. The duty of the Senate, therefore, is clear. That body has suffered in popular estimation from the prevalence of a belief that eouie of its members owe their seats to corrupt influences, rather than to a leg islative appreciation of their virtues aud talents, aud it is a source of some con solation for honest men that corruption caunot, iu all instances, be omnipotent. Tho action of the Juredit Mobilier Com mittee, will have reached but lame and impotent conclusions if in the pro tracted investigation, somethiug more than a rebuke is not administered to the many members of the National Legis lature who have been shown to Lave "itching palms." Bat, be this as it may, something at leust will ba gained if Congress pronounces an emphatic protest agaiust a system that has & de moralized many representatives, and cost our people millions of treasure. Erie Gazette. Subscribe lor the Advooatf. Tho Boom BUI. Ihero is one question belore the legisla ture of Pennsylvania which will sorve as a touchstone ti tet the honesty of every member of that body. That is tho bill proposing to reduce the cliurges made by the boomcoinpuuy at Williams port. By diQurent acts of assembly tho special privileges conferred upon tho corporators of this monopoly have been increased lrom time to time, until a few 'men have been put in a position which enables them to collect au enormous tui, levied upon oue of the most important industries of tho Cotnuioowoalth. If there were some existing reason, giounded on public necessity, by which such legislation could be justified, the owners ot the boem would cava an ex cuse fot their exhorbitant exactions. If they have been induced to expend large sums of money without being repaid for their outlay, they might have some show of right when they appeared bo fore the legislature to resist sueb legisla tion as is calculated to lift a burthen from capital and labor. But (he exor bitant charges of this monopoly can not be justified upon any other plea than that which is embraced iu "The good old rule, the simple plan, That he may get who bus the power, A ii J be may keep who can." Under folse representations, and, as is generally believed, by the use of im proper agencies, the charges which the corporators of this boom company were authorized to make ha been increased from fifty ceuts to oue dollar and a quarter upon every thousaud feet f lumber passed through and delivered to the mills at Williamsport. That this lar;:o increase was not necessary is shown by the fact that tho whole cost vf tho enterprise could have been very easily paid and a large annual profit de rived lrom the charge of titty cents per thousand feet, which was the limit set when the charter was grauted, Last year the tux levied aud collected by this monopoly amounted to the ex horbitant sum of ?;175.000; and this burthen is laid upou the shoulders of the many for the benefit ol the few. Every mau who wields an axe in the pine forests upou the head waters of the Susquehanna leels the i fleet of this ex action iu a reduction of his wages: every carpenter who suovei-a plane has to pay tribute to this monopoly; every person who uses luiubet finds the Meas ure which he receives lor a civen sutu of money shortened, in order that the revenue unjustly exacted by a few mo nopolists, at the city of Williamsport, uiiy he increased. . It seems strango that any legislature should hesitate for a moment ajhea a oil! is offered which will relieve the pro ducers aud the consumers of a great staple from au uujust and iuiquitious burthen. One would naturally suppose that every member of the legislature would make haste to record his vote for the repeal of such special privileges as the corporators ol this Boom company have uuaighteously beeu permitted' to possess themselves of. Such would no doubt be the case, but for the fact that the most potent means ot corruption will be freely used to pre vent justice from being done. Last winter the owners of mill at Williams port weut before the Legislature with a statement showing most clearly how they were beiug robbed, and how all engaged in the production and con snajption of lumber were be iug heavily taxed for the benefit ot a handful of mercenary monopolists. The facts set forth were clear and convincing; the bill presented proposed to loan the corporators of the boom company a large profit all that was demanded was such a reasonable deduction as would give a proper degree of relief toian overburdened industry. Correct prin ciples of political ecouoaiy, public jus tice, proper respect for tho rights of producers and consumers, all uuited in demanding a reduction of the exhorbit anc boom charges; but to every consid eration that could be urged a mujnrity of the members turned a cleat ear. In vain was the justice ot the measure urged; iu vain were members appealed to in behalf of the constituents who were iuteiested iu the cheapeuiug of lumber. A personage named i'eter llerdic, one of .tho men chiefly inter ested in keeping the boom charges up to tho highest figure, visited Harris burg, uud he managed somehow to con trol tho votes of a majority of the mem bers of the Lower House, Rumor says that u special ring was formed lor the occasion, and that each member of the riug received so much money lor voting direufly ugainst the interests of his con stituents. We say this was a rumor but it was a rumor so well substantiated that no oue who possessed the means necessary for making up an opinion had uuy doubt about its trutli. And, now, the same struggle has be gun again. The lumbermen are present at Harrisburg, with a perfectly lair and just bill. They propose to leave to the owners of a boom a 7ery large profit, aud they ouly ask that the producers and the consumers of one of the staple productions ot Pennsylvania shall be relieved from improper burdens. If the members of the legislature vote as right and justice would dictate, they will sup port the bill which the lumbermen have introduced. If they regard the iuterest of their constituents they will do sot Tbey can have no good reason for stand ing with tho monopolists. Every man who dots so will subjoct himself to the suspicion of being bought and tho suspicion will not bo a violent one. Let the list of ayes and nays be . closely scanned, and let every Ulan who votes as Peter llerdic way diotate be set down as having beon bribed to vote against what is right, and in favor of laying a burden upon everv producer and consumer ot lumber in Eastern Pennsylvania. Lan caster Intelligenoer.- Mr. Ferkins and tho Horse. Mr. Stiver, who owued a horse, went away one day and asked Perkins to look after it. Porkius did so. After feed ing him he thought it the correct . thing to take him nut and exorcise him, lie tells tho result: Ho exercised mo befote ho gotthrough with it. He went around a few times in a circle, then he stopped suddenly ,spread out his fore legs and looked at me. Then ho leaned forward a littlo and hoisted both his hind legs, and threw about two coal bods ot mud over s line full of clothes -Mrs. Perkins had just hung out, Thrt excellent lady had .taken a posi tion at the window, and whenever the evolutions of the awful beast permitted, I caught a glance at her features. She appeared to be very much interested in the proceedings, but the instant the mud flew sho disappeared from the window, and a momeut later sho appeared on the stoop with a long poker in her hand, and fire enough iu her eye to beat it red hot. Just fhen Stiver's horso stood up on his bind legs, and tried to hug ma with the others. This scared me. A horse, uever shows his strength to suoh sn ad vantage as when he is coming down on you like a frantic pile driver. I instant ly dodged and the cold sweat fatrly boiled out of me. It frightened Mrs. Perkins dreadfully. "Why, you old fool," said she, "why don't jon get rid of him?" "How can I?" said I in desperation. "Why, there's a thousand ways,'.' said she. , This is just like a woman; how diff erently a statesman would have answered Hut I could think of only two ways to disposo of the beast. I could cither swallow him where he stood, aitd then set down on him, or I oould . craw1-fu-side of him and kick him to death. Put 1 wns saved either of these, ex pedients by his comiug toward ujo so abruptly that I dropped the rope in terror, aud then he turned about and kicked me full of mud, shot for the guto, ripping the clothes lines in two and went off down tho street at a horri ble gallop with two of Mrs. Perkins' garments, which he hastily snatohed I ruin the Hue, floating over his neck in a very picturesque manner So I was afterwards told, as I was too full of houso. mud to see the way iuto the Heat op Rooms The purchase of a thcrmoncter will make paying returns in health. The grtat tendency iu win ter is to keep rooms too warm. The folindatiou of pneumonia, pleurisy and pulmonary consumption is frequently laid in over-heated, ill-ventilated apart ments. The inmates become accustom ed to breathe hot, close air; the system is toned down and relaxed, and a slight exposure to cold and wet results in serious.illnc-ss. "S ome years since says a medical writer, "we called, ono winter eveuing, on a friend, whom we found in a cosy sitting room,' with a large fire, a low ceiliu and the heat ranging about the eighties. She was suffering with a se vere cold, but could give no account ol how she took it. A month later she was prostrated with pneumonia, and she and her sister died within a week of each other, and were buried in the same grave. The intelligent use of a ther moneter would doubtless have saved both of those valuable lives." The mercury in the tube should never be permitted to stand above seventy. If that temperature is. not sufficient to give warmth it is an indication that the person does not take sufficient exercise, and the cure fr it is more miles aud more flannel. In the coldest weather, wheu tho ground is like stoue under the feel, wheu there is no drip from the eaves, and when snow lies on the roof's, rooms should be ventilated. Pure air should be admitted through the open doors and windows, so that the oxygon consumed by flame aud respira tion may be replaced, und the effete and poisonous matter thrown off by tho body thoruoghly driven away. As one of our best writers on household soience remarks, ventilation is a question of money. Valublb Lead. It is said that a load of bullion came through from the Coloruda Silver Regions as lead on to Philadelphia. At Wetmore sidiug on the Philadelphia & Erie Railroad the car that this metal was loaded ou got jammed aud the ue(al was buried ip the snow. Another car was procured, and the metal reloaded aud sent east ward. Shortly after, a peremptory order came from the President that seven bars of lead was missing and they must be got. After considerable digging in the snow, five of the pigs were recov ered and sent on. Then another order came, "the other two bars must be found," and found they were after much delay and hard work. The men won dered why they wero so particular about a few pigs of lead. Hut they found out shortly after that they were not lead, but silver, valued at $5,000 a bar, being sent to the Philadelphia mint for coinage aud were carried in this way, so as to mislead thieves along tho road, who undoubtedly would have pilferred the car to some extent had they knowtw the value of its cargo. Corry Telegraph. An Indiana man was bitten to death by a calf last week in Elkhart county, and the village authorities now require all calves to ba muzzled, except those sUiffed with bran or sawdust. Don't Pox CiMLimtN's Ear's. We call tlie attention ol pur ents, teachers and all thos9 having charge of children to the fact that a physiological journal condems the prac tice of boxnig children s oars. We bd supposed, in this advanced ago of civi lization, : that suoh ' barb arous punish ments were oAy remetubered as relics of the darker sges. Put it appears that the practice is . sufficiently common in some seoious of the country, to call forth a decided romoflstranca. Besides being a brutal method of punishment, it is daBgerous. The passage ot the ear is closed by a thin membrane, especially adapted to be influenced by every im pulse of tire air to support it internally, If any ono designed to break or over strain the membrane, he could scarcely devise a more ofTcctive means than tu wring tho hand suddenly and forcibly down upon the passage of the ear, no possibility for its escape but by the mcm braue giving away. Many child too are made deaf in this way. A New Oaus? or Fire. This is from a New York paper, and shows that there are otker causes for fires than the incendiary, defective flues aud mulshes, In Auburn a toilet bottle full of water, of white glass with bulgMig base sat on the table. Tho morning sun shone into the room of which an invalid was tho only occupant. She soon snuffed an odor as of burning woolen V)d queried J what it could bo Turning her face to ward tho tublo sho discovered a woolen mat on which the toilet bottle stood, on fire in several places. In a few no uieiits tho table aud room would have been involved bad she uot spoedily ex tinguished it. The concave surface of the bottle hiid converged the warm rays of the sun upon the woolen and set it on fire. Several experiments made since have resulted similarly, but the bottle emptied of its contents did not produce the same effect, The PiuiENOLeojCAL Jouunal for March contains a good portrait and sketch of William F.
