Safe at Home.
On Friday last accompanied by our
Wife wo started on a visit to the home
. of her childhood Waynesburgh, Green
County, Pa. Waynesburgh is situated
22 miles sdulh of Washington, and al
though not so easy of access, there being
r river or rail roads passing through it,
;jt one is amply compensated for the
' slight inconvenience by the beauty of its
scenery, and the intelligence and hospi
tality of its inhabitants. Within the last
few years they have errected a Court
House and other public buildings which
Would do honor to any of our second
class cities. We were informed that
their College is in a very healthy and
.flourishing condition, with an excellent
Library and superior philosophical appa
ratus. , By the application of "Horse power,"
we were landed at home on last evening,
and are again pleasantly seated in our
sanctum. By a free interchange of views
with gentlemen in Waynesburgh and
Washington, we were confirmed in our
convictions that the temporary triumph of
the Pro-Slavery Democracy, in that re
gion, was the result of indiscretion upon
the part of the opponents of the National
Administration. When the true issue is
presented next Fall, Green, Washington,
and Pennsylvania will go in favor of
American Freedom, and in opposition to
African Slaverv and political Romanism,
then shall we be proud of the tecord that
we are a Pennsjlvanian by birth and by
education.
Six horses escaped from their owners
in Monongahela county, Va., on Saltir
day night last, taking &ix slaves with
them. The horses and one of the slaves
were captured on Sabbath, in Green Co.,
Pa. The other five were still running at
large on Monday when we left Waynes
burgh, As the horses are secured we
hope the propeity they purloined will be
landed safely in Canada, and the horses
be held to a strict account.
Thieves About. On Saturday night,
some persons not having the fear of the
printer before their eyes, entered the
liouse of the editor of the Herald, and car
ried away various articles of clothing, jew
elry, &c. They then proceeded to the
dwelling of Mr. B. P. Drennen, and rob
bed it of a considerable amount of mon
ey, (part of which was a Sabbath School
collection,) and also some jewelry and
other articles. The houses of Mr. Frank
Owcsney, John Nath, and R. D. Morri
son, were visited the same night, and
treated in a similar way. No clue to the
perpetrators has yet been found.
C7 Blackwood's Magazine for Oclo
ber is on our table. This magazine is
particularly desirable at this time, on ac
count of its excellent articles upon the
war between the Allies and Russia. The
The contents of this -number are, "North

ICfThe Deserted Wife, by Emma D.
E. N. Southworth, Philadelphia, T. B.
Petei son. 586 pages, price $1,25. Thai
Mrs. Southworth is a lady of genius, and
that the productions of her pen possess a
rare fascination, none who have read them
will deny. 'The Deserted Wife," is a
fiction of great power and interest , yet
we would not recommend it to very young
persons. There are some doctrines we
cannot endorse but we must say that in
attractiveness wo have seldom seen its
equal.
Cj We have received the November
No. of Arthur's Home Magazine. We
know of no magazine which we can more
cordially recommend to youthful readers,
than Arthur's. Its contents are interest
ing, and its moral teachings unexception
able. C7Pelerson's Magazine for Novem
ber is a splendid number. The engra
ving, The Woodland Sleeper,' is almost
worth the price of the book, and the con
tents are even more than usually interest
ing. See prospectus' for 1856 in an noth
er column. . . .
C7Godey's Lady's Book for Novem
ber is on our table, Godey publishes
the star magazine, among fashionable pe
riodicals. See prospectus for 1856 in

GRAND REPUBLICAN JUBILEE !
Thd State Central Committee, after con
sultation with friends from various
parts of the Slate, have resoh'
ed to hold the
GRAND REPUBLICAN CELE-
bration In honor of our Glorious Victory
in Ohio. At Columbus, on Wednesday,
November 14th.
Letters of invitation have been sent to
Hon. Ciias. Sumxeh, Hon. Wm. H. Sew
ard, and other distinguished Republican
oiators, who are confidently expecteoto
be present on that occasion. The sever
al county committees of the State are re
quested to take immediate action to se
cure the attendance of as many citizens
from their several counties as possible.
Our triumph is most complete and over-
wjielmning, and is the dawn of a better
day for the people of Ohio. It is w orlhy
of this special commemoration.
The details of this eelebration will be
given to the public as soon as they are ar
arnged. The Ohio Delegation in Con
gress, the Governor and Lieut. Governor
elect, and other officers ol State who have
been so triumphantly chosen by the peo
ple, are expected to be present. It will
be the great jubilee of freedom. Let the
freemen of Ohio come together on the oc
casion and congratulate each other on this
most auspicious event.
By order W. B. Thrall, Scc'y.
Why should I Give ?
Where God is forgotten, it is pitiful to
see how riches harden the heart of him
who gains them. Sometimes the man
who was liberal while he was poor, be
comes niggardly as he becomes wealthy.
The tendency of gain 3 to nourish sel
fishness if the hand that bestows it is over
looked, and the thirst of selfishness can
never be shaken. The reservoir of the
coAetous never overflows. Recognizing
no obligation he yields to no claim. A
man of this sort once said : "Others nev
er give to me, why should I give to oth
ers ?" Infatuated man ! is there none
that ever gives to thee ? What hast thou
fiat thou hast not received ? Who gave
thee reason, life, success? Who pros
pered thy plans? Who gave thee power
to gel wealth ? Who has kept thy dwel
ling safe ? Who has warded off from
thee a thousand calamities which have
overtaken thy fellows ? And art thou
indebted to none has none a right to thy
bounty? Wilt thou rob God ? Shall he
have no share of what is his own ?
Difficulties in the war to be fear
ed from Louis Napoleon. The prime
difficulty in calculating the future of the
present European war is not the uncer
tainty of the German powers, nor the
doubtful position of the ancw Czar, nor
the instability of administrations in Eng
land, nor the questioned ability of the Al
lies to take Sebastopol ; but it is the in
scrutable purpose and way of Napoleon
III. He is embarrassed by no parlimen
tary opposition or commissions of inqui
ry. He has an army five times larger
than that of England, and can make
new levies at pleasure, 'while England
finds it impossible to keep her present
ranks full. As the remarkable success of
his late popular loan demonstrates, he can
raise money to any Extent required. He
has the advantage of all the moral power,
of the superiority of thp French military
genius as demonstrated in thepresent Cri-
incanc ainnn'gn. For all the purposes of
the existing war, or of any war, he is far
more necessary to England than England
to him. Neio Fork Courier and En

A benefit is always experienced from the first

Reader, I peddled over a thousand bottles of
this in the vicinity of .Boston. I know the ef
fect of it in every case. So sure as water Will
extinguish fire, so sure will thii cure humor, t
never sold a bottle of it but that sold another ;
after a trial it always speaks for itself. There
are two things about this herb that appear tv
me surprising ; first that it grows in our pas
tures, in some places quite plentiful, and yet
its value has never been known until I discov
ered it in 184G secoud, that it should cure all
kinds of humor.
In order to give some idea of the sudden rlsd
and great popularity of the discovery, I will
state that in April, ld53, 1 peddled it, aud sold
about six bottles per duy iu April, 1854, 1 void
over one thousand bottles pur day of it.
borne of the wholesale .Druggists who have'
been in business twenty aud thirty years, say
that nothing in the annuls of pateut medicine
was ever like it. Uiere is a universal pramtf
of it from all quarters.
In my own practice 1 always Kept tt ttfictiy
for humors but since its introduction aia gen
eral family medicine great uud wonderful vir
tues have been tounu iu u unit l never suspect
ed.'
Several cases of epileptic fits a disease'
which was always considered incurable, have
been cured by a few bottles. O, what a mercy
if it will prove effectual in all coses of that aw
ful malady there are but few who have seen
more of it than I have.
I know of several cases of Dropsy, all of
them aged people, cured by it. From the vari
ous diseases of the Liver; sick headache, Dys
pepsia, asthma, fever and ague, pain iu the side,
diseases of tbe spine, aud particu arly in die
cases of the Kidneys, etc., the discovery has
done niore good than any medicine ever known.-
No change of diet ever nececest-ary eat the
best you get and enough of it.
