M. for the purpose of nominating candidates for Representative, Treasurer, Sheriff, Coro- j ter. Republican Candidates for Con gress in the 11th District. Very little has been said about the nomination of a Republican candidate fur Qougress, in this- district. This i perhaps owing to the fact that the public mind has pretty generallj" settled upon Gen. Packard, oi present Representative, wtio has given quite as general satisfac tion as any man could have given, who had not acquired sufficient control over the minds of the people to diiect public sentiment at will. It would be strange indeed, if any man could l.e found to sup ply the place so long occupied by the 1 most industrious, the most skilful, and the most thoroughly politician, in the country, whose generous disposition, nn swerving moral integrity and thorough acquaintance with the principles of our Government were known and acknowl edged by all who would not meet with opposition from some good men Who fancy their merits have been overlooked, and others who are afflicted with the chronic sore -head. Comparisons will be made between Colfax and Packard, and those who make no allowance for the position the two men occupy, may speak disparagingly of the latter and yet w here will they find a better man to take liis place. He is a sound Republican, well educated, has served his country well on the battlefield, is strictly temperate, and a most honest, upright and industrious man cannot be found, as oce w ho knows j liim and who has been acquainted with the ; struggles he endured with adverse fortune, j the first five or six years of his life in La- j'orte. The following is from the South Bend Riginter :, The general opinion has been, until quite recently, that our present Congress' man, Gen. Packard, would have no oppo sition to his renomination, but it now ap pears that a few who thought ditfcrunily and that Valparaiso would furnish a can didate, were correct in their pinions. Valparaiso has produced a candidate, as we sec by the Vidc.fte, which presents his claims and strongly advocates his nomi nation, yet promises to support Gen. Packard if he should again be the choice of the Republican party of the District. This new candidate is Col. Gil. A. Pierce, a man of the prepossessing appearace and brilliant talents, who has had considerable experience in political life, both in thi: State and at Washington City, and who lias acquired quite a reputation as a w Ti ll e visited this city on 1 uesuay.

So far as the Register is concerned it will support the Republican nominee, as it ever has done, whether Gen. Packard, Col.

They cry peace! peace! when thcrj is no peace. Democrats are becoming furi ours over the nomination of Greeley. Hon. D. Voorhees, our Indiana Voorhees, rose to make a personal explanation in the House of Representatives, on Mon day, w hen he relieved his 'mind on the position, (which should not be quickly lost sight of,) and-above all he is an hon est, good Mid true man a Christ un gen tleman such as w e need in official posi tions, out, unfortunately, have too few of. The Laporte IL-rnld of last week, has a communication from Mishawaka, in which Hon. W. G. George, of South Bend, is recommended as a candidate on the ground May 14th, 1872. Although- some of our previous com munications were miserably gotten up (of course we did not know it until they ap peared in print); and notwithstanding our numerous resolutions to dash the pen aside, and never permit it to re-attempt the exposition of our literary faculty, we accept the situation, cast away self honor, and dash into it again, remembering the Latin proverb " Labor omnia vincit," and taking hope therefrom. "Misery likes company;" we rejoice, therefore, when we notice mistakes in other correspond ents' productions; and have been tempted to ask an interchange of criticism of some one of the correspondents of the Republic ax ; n(,t to show what we know, but to make us more careful in our selection of terms. That might be an exceptional feature in our communica tions, therefore we will slash away as us ual. Our rural township is prpvring finely. The verdure of May surrounds us; the heretofore backwardness of the Spring, apparently adding beauty to its lines. Planting will soon be completed. Far mers generally are making some improve ments, still there is room for more. Mr. Brumbaugh lias a number of fine young evergreen trees, which woti'd beautify most of our yards if properly distributed. A little labor and a few dollars expended in making home pleasant, would add thousands of dollars to the value of our township. Why not do it, and thus take the lead in the county. "We can, if we think so, for we have the necessary ma terials within our borders. Brumbaugh will turnish evergreens and a number of fruit trees. If his supply is exhausted, Holland fc Co. will soon be to the rescue with their thirty acres or more. The for mer will also furnish all the first class brick that may 1 e in demand, at his yard, where the brick for the Court-House was burned. His first kiln w ill soon be ready lor the lire, and he intends to bum as ma ny more as the market may demand. His clay is of the first quality. If you want ood flour go to Win. Zehner's water mill. Go to his steam sawmill lor lumber; orif that is too far, there is Ett'man, west ot him, or the Donaldson mill near the P. Ft. W. ic C. R. 11. You call do well at either place. For blacUsmiihing, there is Kreighbaum, Williams, and Isinuour. The latter, or Mr. Andrews (who a ill fur- uish you with garden products), will re pair your wagons. Seider, Kiapp, and Zumbaugh will put up buildings in the best of order and in beautiful style. We have missed some in each of the above vocations, but must not mention more, for they are too numerous. We are truly prepared for making our township second to none ; and best of all wc do not know of one Liberal Republican. Truly we should have none, for what guamnty have we of Greeley's future course. What man, after carefully noticing his career in the darkest days of our Republic, can say he is a lit subject for the executive depart ment of government. He knows less about governing for the welfare of our j country than he does about "farming," or ! sick,, the former suffering with lung di- j sease and indications of an abscess on the liver.

Measles was the cause. Saml. BeileP had about one hundred rods of fence burned a few days ago. The destroying element was blown from a pile of burning rubbisii, set by Wm.

Henceforth their stated meetings will be licld on the second Saturday in each ' month. The farmers in this vicinity be gin to realize that successful farming re quires mehtul application as well as phys ical labor; and when conducted upon scientific principles their labor is pleasing land remunerative. There is no better farming country in all Northern Indiana than that of Mar shall County, when properly developed; nor a more intelligent class of farmers than are to be found in the vicinity of Argos. There is one thing, however, connected with fanning, that has thus far been sadly neglected. We allude to the improvement of stock. Horses will per haps compare favorably with other por tions of the State. Hogs, although bet ter than in years past, might yet be great ly improved. Sheep are of a poor quali ty, as a general rule, and cattle are of de chledly inferior quality. Strange that some of our well-to-do tanners do not nalizc these facts, and put forth an effort to remedy this evil. The firm of D. & L. Goldsmith have puichased, during the past week, one thousand pounds of wool, at To cents per pound. Thev say that the citizens of Marshall and adjoining Counties shall not let their wool spoil on their hands for want of a market. Amos boa-its of an itinerant Justice of the Peace, who says he can "transact offi cial cusiness just a well where lie in as where he riiiit.'"

Others might do as they liked, but as for him and his household, he would r ot do this thing.' 8 Voorhees don't ratify. Greeley stock has depreciated in Democratic circles amazingly since the delivery of that speech. A Midnight Terror. Terrific yells of murder and cries for assistance startled the quiet of the neigh borhood m the vicinity of the residence of Mr. Birth, on Main street, at a late hour on Wednesday night of last week. A first class sensation of horror was con fidently expected by those whose ears were greeted by the appaling sounds, and although many rushed half clad to the rescue, it was with scarce a hope that their assistance would be in season. The train of circumstances resulting in the disturbance, originated in the malicious ness of certain marauding boys who un blocked a number of cars of lumber on the Peninsular railway, and started them on the down grade. Their speed increas ed rapidly until near the Michigan 6treet crossing they came in collision with an engine which was standing on the track, causing a general smash. The outrage attracted the attention Of a couple of the employes of the road, and wiiile they "were surveying the damage done, they saw a man passing, who seemed in a sus picious hurry. They called to him to halt, which he certainly did not, and on their starting after him lie broke into a run for life and simultaneous yells of murder. His flight terminated on the steps of Mr. Earth, at whose door he pleaded in tones of frenzied desperation for admission, and although the crowd which hastily collected around him, as sured him there was no danger to be ap prehended, it was with great "difficulty his fears could be allayed. A few words from the railway men who shortly after arrived at the scene, explained the misunder standing, and the midnight gathering dis perse with feelings of equanimity once more .restored. The frightened man. was running to call a doctor for a sick man. South Bend Regitter. vention duly consider before placing a candidate in the field. Among the many spoken of we notice the names of Keith, of Fulton; Hammond, of Jasper; and Pierce, of Porter. We have been . ac quainted with Sidney Keith for many years, and he has always borne the charac ter of an honest and upright man. If he w ere nominated we know of no objections that could be brought to bearagait.st him. We consider him a safe man. Cel. Ham mond is a gentleman highly spoken of, and, although we have not the pleasure of a personal acquaintance, we know him from report. He is exceedingly popular in his portion of the district. Mr. Pierce is widely known as a gentleman of intelli gence and sagacity, and his personal ac quaintances have no hesitancy in pro nouncing him true and t usty." The Rochester Spy opposed Gen. Pack ard mildly ; perhaps from personal pique as there does not seem to be any good cause for it. Believing Gen. Packard to be one of the best men, as well as the safest in the district, we haye no hesitation in express ing our belief that it is the policy of the Republicans to re-elect Uen. Packard to Congress. - The Elections- In South Bend, the regularly nominated Republican ticket was elected, except the Marshal, who is a drunken bloat and ought not to have been nominated. The officers are: Mayor William Miller majority, 530. City Judge Mark.AVhinery majority, 589. , . " '. " Treasurer J. ' G. Maugherman ma jority, 410. , City Clerk David M.

In Laporte the Democrats elected three Councilmen, and the Republicans one. want The people do not want him, and wc be lieve they will not have him. Give us a man, whoever he may be, who will be firm in the right. We noticed a few remarks in the Re publican relative to our next joint Repre sentative, which reminds us of the defeat two years ago. The Republicans of this district who know the true cunne, of that defeat should take steps- to prevunt a sim ilar result. The next Legislature has too important work to perform for a repeti tion of that alfuir. We need more tho rough work. Will we Lave it? is 'lie question. Let us all say yea, and each cast in his might, and we will. We should lay aside particular friends and personal animosities, and seek integrity, honesty, and all the proper and necessary attri butes of an official. The Republican par ty has an abundance of good material, and some very poor. If tve aim to obtain the best, we will surely get those for lead ers who are good. The past speaks for itself. If, twelve years ago, Greeley, or some of his friends, had been asked if it were possible for the United States to pass through what it has since then, and in 1S72 occupy its present prosperous condition, '"no," would have been the an swer, "it cannot do it. Do not attempt it." But it was attempted, and the at tempt proved a success. All parties ac knowledge the success ; and, although a few of the great party who cannot have things just as they wish, have severed their connection with it, the bone and sinew still remain, and are proving, and will prove themselves able to remove all the burdens of the people, maintain the honor, and establish, the supremacy of the American government; All that is ne cessary to accomplish this is to begin the work carefully in our conventions, push it forward vigorously through the cam paign, and all will be well. There are to be several conventions in Plymouth soon, all of which are important to West town ship, and the whole county should be ful ly represented in the mass conventions ; and delegates, who will select the right men for the. various positions, should be sent to the delegate conventions. If mis takes are made at conventions they are sure to follow at the polls. Oscar Pilcher, Abraham Bruckhart and Federick Slife, have been dangerously " long cars is a denizen of "Walnut. Keep jour mules at home, Mr. Chips; and if annoyed by their misconduct, en deavor to teach tiicm better manners, by setting an example, and don't attempt to palm off their misdeeds on your innocent neighbors.
