THURSDAY, FEB. 10TH, 1876. Annonncemeats. To (he Yuten of Rvhjway toxenthipt We are Authorized to Announce the DAiue ofC. W. BARRETT as an Inde pendent candidate for Constable at the Township Election to be held Feb. 15th 1876. Township Oflloers. The act approved March 10, 1875, provides that all township and borough officers, excepting school di rectors, elected in Februaiy shall be gin their terms of office on the first Monday In April. . Act approved April 12, 1875, supple ment to Act of April 20, 1874, amends section Gth so as to read as follows: "The corporate authorities of every snch municipality or district, shall at the end of their fiscal year, prepare and publish in at least two newspapers of said municipality or of the county In which the same is situate, if ho many be printed therein, a state ment showing in detail, the actual in debtness, the amount of the funded debt, the amount of the floating debt thereof, the valuation of taxable propety tlierclnrthe assets of the cor poration, with thcchaiactcr and value thereof, and the date of maturity ol the respective forms of funded debt thereof; and a neglect or fuilure so to do shall be a misdemeanor, punishable by fine not exceeding ono thousand dollars." We called attention to the law of 1874, which requires publication In January, having overlooked the sup plement of 1875. Iu the case of one or two statements already in type, we have received orders to publish the number of times required by law, the officers believing that they fulfilled the inention of the law, if it did not come quite up to the letter of law, and where the statements have been pub lished in January, probably no state ment will be published at the end of the fiscal year. Iso Btatomont re ceived after we learned of the supple ment of 1875 have been put in type, as we had reason to believe they were made out under the impression that the law of 1873 was still in force. At present the law does not seem to be generally known throaghout the .State. We uotice a large number of our exchanges calling attention to the law of 1874, and some of them are pub lishing au item to the erTwt that State Superintendent Wickcrshiim, in his report submitted to the Legislature at Its present session, calls attention of school directors to the law of 1874, re quiring publication of financial state ments, and that the Btate Superinten dent says in that report that it is the duty of school directors to comply with it. It seems that even the State Su perintendeutls not posted on the law. Potter Enterprise. A Remarkable Winter. 8ince the advent of February the weather has been somewhat more seasona ble than before, as if Winter, having en tered on the last third of his calendar reign, had suddenly waked up to remind us that he is the "king of cold," and had conclued to give us a touch of his prerog ative. In many parts of Europe the win ter has been as far beyond the average of severity as here it has fallen short of it. The snow blockade of railroads for weeka together, so familiar here last winter, has been almost unknown in our country this season; but in Europe great snow storms have swept vast regions, not only in the north, but occasionally in sunny Spain and Italy. Russia, in the region of St Peters burg, is described as hiving bsen shrouded in gloom, in eoneequence of the terrible cold and the storms; while here in Pbila delpbia pansies have been blooming in midwinter in open gardens, and some pro tected woods of New Jersey have brought forth wild flowers. Year before last there was a mild January, and six years ago the month was milder even than the one past; but the strange thing about At present winter has beta its almost utter lack of severe eold, and its absence both of snow and very eold weather from its be. ginning till now. An equally mild No vember, December and January will be hard to find in succession for many years baok. This weather has been a priceless boon to the poor, especially coming, as it has, in bard times, and enabling the povety stricken to get an without that quantity f fuel and thick clothing which in a severe winter is needful to avoid fretting. It has also helped them in another way. by al lowing an unusual quantity of oat-door work, of the unskilled sort a kind of labor commonly suspended necessarily in winter. The mild winter has not only been fa vorable to the poor, but it has been specially favorable I) the building opera tions of fhe Centennial Exhibition ia Phila delphia. The eoLtractora have certainly had extraordinary lock in this) respact. Two successive witters ao favorable for building have not been known within re. membrance; and the springs, autumnsand summers have been almost equally re saarkable by their equable temperature, and their comparative freedom from storms which would delay work. With such ax ceptional weather the readinesa of the buildings at the opening of the Exhibition can of course be safely predicted. The eosstsnt fear has been that such weather must ba unhealthy, and terrible sicknesses have been apprehended. Yet last week there were but 863 deatha, againat 890 in the corresponding week af the year previous. Statistics of previous weeks also show that the mortality baa aet bean increased by the mildness af the tea sen Steck't PhUa- R. It. Guide, Remember we do job w ork cheaply and neatly.

This is not bad, when We consider the stringency of the times. The Milford Herald anounces the death of Mr. Ripley, a noted hermit of Greene Township, Pike Co., Ta.- He was formerly a wealthy merchant of New York City, but fulled in business. His reverses so preyed on his mind that he fled to a wild, desolate plaee, several miles from any habitation. Therefor 35 years he had sustained himself by fishing and hunting. The Rhode Island House of Reprc, sentittives yesterday passed, without division, a bill providing, that land occupied or owned by churches,schools colleges, and charitable associations, shall no longer be exempt from taxa tion. Tliis is a rather sweeping bill, and in some respects an absurb one. The school property for instance, be longs to the taxpayers, and was bought and paid for, and Is maintained by taxation. To make it subject to lotuil and State taxation seems to us absurd. Pittsburgh Telegraphic.

Fatal Accident. - Last Tuesday, 8th Inst., J. O. W. Bailey, Esq., was called to Wilcox to hold an inquest on the. body of a man. who had been killed that. day. We will give the particulars as we karn them. The accident took place about four miles from Wilcox where a well was being dug for water. The dead man was a tramp named Patrick Hagan, who had came along and was hired to help dig the well. He stated that he was a miner and' understood blasting. On the duy of the accident he hud gonedown in the well and put in a torpedo for the purpose of blasting t ha roc k after whic he called to the men above to haul- him out, and to hurry about it. The men above, it is Slip- posed Were considerably frightened, for about the time Hngtui's head came above the surface they gave the wind lass a sudden jerk which threw the man back into the well agaitl. The ex plosion took place shortly after he lan ded on the bottom blowing his face and part of his breast off. We did not get the verdict of the jury but persume it was in accordance with the above facts. A leading New York paper on Satur day had a long dispatch from Philadel phia giving an account of a movement believed to be on foot to orlng out Governor Hartranft for the Presidency not a candidate to receive the com plimentary vote of the Pennsylvania delegation, and then be set aside, but one to struggle w'th the strong contes tants for the pri.e. Some of the gov ernor's good qualities are thus spoken of: . He is quiet, reticent, unaffected, averse to speech-making, firm in his opinions, true in his friendships, and immoveable hen once he has made up his mind. But unlike the President, he has never re garded his office as something belonging to him personally, like a farm to be worked or bis own advantage aud pleasure and that of his family. On the contrary. through his whole official career he has manifested a strong sense of his duty aod responsibility to the state, and has thus won the praise of all parties for his con scientious and impersonal administration To have made a good governor of a great state like Pennsylvania is as strong a re commendation as a aaan can have for the Presidency. In Pennsylvania, as in Mew York, the right performance of the duties of the executive office requires administra tive abilities of a high order. If military reputation ia to count for anything in the comu.g canvass, Uen. Hartranft bas ao army reooru unexcelled by that of any volunteer omcer. State Notes.
