TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19th, 1876. at 10 o'clock A. M. J. II. II AG ERTY, Chairman. Facts for Voters. Thursday, September 7th, is the last day for being assessed. Saturday, October 7th is the last day for securing naturalization papers. Saturday, October 7th, is the last day on which taxes can be paid in legal time to vote. LOCAL NOTES. Grapes are in this market. Blackberries are about gone. John Neill has been released from jail on bail. The Hayes d Wheeler Club num bers 110 members. We print letter-heads and bill-heads neatly and cheaply. Mrs J. A. Boyle, well known by many of our readers, is in town. Egos are selling here at 18 cents a dozen. Potatoes are still selling here at 80 cents a bushel, with a good prospect for an advance in price. Don'T fail to attend the Hayes & Wheeler Club meeting on Saturday evening. B. F. Ely is laying pipe from a spring on the top of Elk creek hill to his residence. We are told that Highland township will poll about 40 votes this fall In former years the votes of the township averaged but fifteen. The public school commenced last Monday, with J. B. Johnson as prin cipal, assisted by Mrs Johnson, and Misses Babe E. Wilcox and Belle Kenear. On' Sunday next at the evening ser vice it is the purpose of the Rector of Grace Church to preach a sermon especially suited to young men. Sub ject ''Show thyself a man." All especially the young men of our vil lage arc cordially invited to attend. Tho Supremo Court of the United States hasjust decided that usurious interest charged by a national bank vitiates the contract. Such an over charge works a forfeiture of ail inter est agreed to be paid. This is in acord ance with the rulings of our State Courts One of the most sensible items in the new postal law, and one which everybody will appreciate, is that which allows a person to write his or her name on the wrapper and also the word "from," to let the party receiv ing it know who it is from, without violating the law. We are under obligations to the three gentlemen, at Wilcox, who have favored the Advocate with com munications. In this connection we will udd that communications from other sections of the county are ear nestly solicited and will be thankfully received. B. F. Ely has brought us a specimen ofmillet which is5 feet and 10J inches in height. The heads are well rilled out and the stalks are large This millet was planted June 20th, on land that was never manured. Millet is a very fine grain, and is very valuable for feeding horses, cattle and poultry, and when properly prepared makes very good "slapjacks." We desire to express our heartfelt thanks through the columns of your paper, to the pupils of our school who so beautifully and appropriately deco rated ourschool room with evergreens and mottoes and for the warm greeting we received at their hands upon re suming our labors for another year. MR. and MRS. J. B. JOHXSON, Sept. 5, 1870. Burglary. The Methodist church was burglarized last Monday after noon, and the missionary box, contain ing a small quantity of money, taken. The theft was discovered on Monday evening, when an official meeting was being held. The back door was forced open and two brass locks forced from the library doors. Suspicion resting on two boys, Willie Maloue and John Neill, they were arrested on Tuesday morning, and brought before Esquire Mead, who, after a hearing, bound them over to court and fixed the bail at $100 each.. In default of bail the boys were lodged in fort Scull, Killed. John Van Braband of Penfleld, well known in this place, was killed by the fall of a tree, on Tuesday, Aug. 22. He was employed on the Laurel Run log job of Leander Denning, as boss of the "cribbing" crew, and had directed a man to chop a certain tree, telling him upon which eiae to chop :it. wnen the tree was ready to fall Mr. V., and about a dozen other men were iu its way, and were told to move. They did so and all es caped but the unfortunate Van Bra hand, who stepped in the wrong di rection, the tree striking him full upon the head and shoulders killing him al most instnatly. He was about forty- seven years of age. liaftgmarit Jour 7al. WILCOX NOTES. Wilcox. Pa., Sept. 4th, 1878. All quiet about the saw-mill. Two bad failures Sunday afternoon. The graded school commenced to day. A large number of idle men about town. The Interest in the flsh pond still continues. Thero are two hundred and thirty feet of oil in the Schultz well. Dr. A. M. Straight and wife start for the Centennial to-day. The School Directors are building a new fence around the School build ing. Miller says he is not the father of J." I am very much pleased to learn the fact. The Tanning Co. have cut down wages again. They have not cut down prices in the store. "Pop" says the new side walk is an imposition on shoe makers, it is so smooth it will not wear out the taps fast enough. Martin Sowers has made over twelve hundred gallons of blackberry wine in three weeks using about thirteen thousand five hundred quarts of ber ries. Gus. Jacobson, the proprietor of the Sweed Hotel, has made quite an im provement by putting a new porch on the front of his house, also a new fence. Oil well No, 3 is all ready to com mence operations as soon as their tools arrive. They are expected to-daV. They have drove pipe to the bed rock a distance of forty-three feet. Millet is still growing. The Wilcox Tanning Co. have some seven feet and two inches high. I will not state how high the land was manured for fear the Democrat man may not like it. J. While Governor Seymour is a very popular man in his State, he is not in vincible. In 1802, he defeated Gen eral Wadsworth, Republican, for Gov ernor, by a small majority, butiu 1804, he (Seymour) was defeated by Hon. Reuben E. Fenton. His majority over Grant in New York in 1868,soine ten thousand votes, was due to the 60,- 000 majority he received in the city. Since then the Republicans have de tected the manner of the frauds of t he Democracy, and in 1872 the majority of the latter was kept down to near its proper proportions about twenty thousand. Free speech is no longer allowed by tho rebel Democracy of Vicksburg, Mississippi. They give a Republican speaker a gentle reminder in the shape of eggs, and, if he fails to heed the warning, the rifle or pistol will be brought into requisition. Oh, no! the Government mustn't interfere to pro tect citizens in their right to speak and vote; that would be an invasion of State rights, us well as an impertinent interference witli the right of the rebels to shoot down all who do not vote their way. What a jovial state of affairs they will have down South when the Democracy get into power again. .Every Northern man wuo lias helped with his capital and his in dustry to rebuild the wrecked States will bo driven North, and his prop erty confiscated for the use and enjoy ment of the rebels who were forced to sell it at the end of tho rebellion. Pittsburgh Tclcyraph. The Chicago Times is a Democratic paper, but it doesn't like the "reform" platform. It speaks of it as "inaccu rate and reckless in some of its state ments," and says: "Reform" is the word that runs all through it aud stands conspicuous in nearly every plank. In this particular, it protests too much. It is a very easy thing for a party to promise great things iu the way of reform, but promises and per formances are very different things. When the Democratic party promises reform it must expect to be judged, like any other party, by Its record, by its known principles, if it has any, and by the character of those who compose it. The party that produced Tweed and his crowd of Tammany thieves, and similar men wherever it has been in power, and which attracts to itself almost the entire body of ex-slave holders and secessionists, together with the class of men of whom Johu Morrissey is a distinguished repre sentative, need not expect that its promise of reform will bo accepted ab solutely without question. The Republic Magazine for Sep tember is the most powerful number yet issued of this valuable monthly. No public man or private citizen who be lieves in Republican principles should fail to subscribe for this magazine. It has been a power for good in former campaigns, and will so prove in this. The following is the table of contents for the present number, Election Frauds; The Republican Party of the Past and Present, Horace Greeley v S J. Tilden; United States Bonds and Notes; Universal Amnesty and Univer sal Suffrage; How England Encour- ages Her Men of Letters; The Chinese riank; Scandal in the Earlier Days of the Republic; Democratic Inconsis tency; The Virtuous Democracy; Til' den's Letter of Acceptance; Free Schools at the South; Work of the Forty-Fourth Congress; verbatim re port of the great speech of General Gar field and sneech of General Hulbut Send $2 to the Republic Publishing company, Washington, u. anusuo scribe for one year.

The Manufacturers' Hoard of Trade have de cided that, if the market remains on the 1st of October substantially as now. they will restore half of the last out-down. The spinners of the Flint mill have demanded the immediate restoration of the wages, but no strike has yet taken place. Our Washington ' special to-day furnishes some further testimony to the Democratic Integrity of the past, which Is just now Interesting leading in the face of the professions of that party. It seems that an examination by the Indian office of the questions pending between North Carolina and the Western Cherokees has led to the unearthing of a Democratic swindle extending through three administra tions, and amounting to over $3,000, 000. Tho money stolen was appropri ated by Congress at various times in connection with the removal of the Cherokees from Northern Georgia and vicinity to the Indian Territory. A good portion of the money appropria ted under the treaty of removal went into the hands of those in the Demo cratic ring which managed the affair, and which through the Administra tions of Presidents Polk, Pierce and Buchahan continued to press claims, present bills and secure appropriations for expenses incurred in the removal. Where the uctual cost of removal in many coses was only $20 per head from $10 to $200 was charged, and iu the bills for removals fictitious num bers of Indians were submitted and allowed. The investigation thus far has involved a number of Democratic politicians of tho administrations named, and lias shown that the money stolen outright was not less than $!!, 000,000. Theparty of "reform" has an ugly record, and the above is only one case out of many that will be de veloped. ntUburg Telegraph. Washington, D. C, August 30. The Treasury now holds $22,802,457 in legal tender notes for the redemption of national bank circulation, made up as follows: Reducing circulation, $17, 298,229; voluntary liquidation, $4,130, 413,80; failed, $807,800,30. H. T. Calhoun, a clerk in tho post office at Columbus, Georgia, was ar rested onSaturday for stealing money from letters. He admitted having taken ninety-two dollars, and after being taken into custody tried to com mit suicide. One hundred and twenty. four clerks employed in the War Department at Washington, Utstrict ot Columbia, were discharged on Saturday, in con formity with the recent action of Con gress ordering a reduction in tho na tional clerical departments. Richmond, Va., September 4. The Methodists of Richmond aud Manchester held a large mass meeting yesterday to consider the reports of the joint commission of the M. E. Church North and the M. 12.
