Any result short of this will not be more unsatis factory to any than the editors. Our first intention was to publish a political paper. Viol ling to the weightier suggestions of gentlemen of both parties, we find we cannot do so without violence to the honest political opinions of an extensive community, and which could not but result in the loss el large and lucra tive patronage. How well we will succeed in main taining a position independent of party, time will determine. Tolls it is untrod ground. The period has been when we boliev d such a position en tirely practicable. It has been said, however, that “in politics, as in re ligion, there is no neutral ground.’ Be this as it may, wo begin with the earnest determination to abstain to tally from the introduction in our col umns ol party spirit. Any depaiturc from this will be tiie result of acci dent or oversight, the discovery ol which will occasion sincere regret, and, as far as possible, immediate reparation. Wo fool assured, how ever, that with the exercise of un sleeping vigilance and untiring exertion, we can publish ar paper so liberal in its views to all, without evincing partiality for any, and so replete with general interest as to unite in its support the good men of all parties. Our aim, then, will bo confined to wiving our readers general intelli gence from all quarters of the coun try and the world. Meanwhile, be lieving it to be the special province of country newspapers to devote themselves to the publication of local news, wo will endeavor to pay par ticular attention to this portion of our duties, and in such manner as to make our paper interesting, at-, tractive and profitable. M hatever interests, having for their object the material and moral improvement of the town and community shall not only meet with our concurrence, but j our hearty support. Acknowledging the peculiar obli- ; gations of editors to be candid, fair > and honorable, wo hope, by an open, j honest, upright, conciliatory and lib eral course, not only to attract a j permanent, substantial support, but 1 to elevate and ennoble the profession to which we have attached ourselves. ] We hope never to bo too self-con- 1 eeited to learn ; too obstina.te to ao- W knowledge our mistakes; too selfish ! f to sacrifice interest to truth ; too in-; tolerant to maintain (lie right of free ! thought and speech ; too unet.arita blo to accord to all men their just measure of praise and esteem ; too old to improve, or too ignoble to de spise all meanness. In conclusion, we commend our selves and our errors to the kind Consideration of a generous public, and solicit a liberal supnort in the endeavors we have foicshadowed. KNIGHTS TEMPLAR. The great parade of Haights Tem plar in Baltimore on the 21st inst., and their presence there for several days preceding and succeeding, has been an interesting and magnificent occasion. Largo delegations from distant and different portions of the country participated in the proces sion, the pageantry of which is rep resented by the newspapers as of tin most splendid character. Even Bal timore, accustomed to displays of, this kind, does not often witness such 1 spectacles as was presented on this occasion, and the impression !j4& mr~ on the minds of her people will be 1 ineffaceable during thir j.eucrauon. , I’KitsoNm.itv. —Our habits, oar Mtferunl I on Hiaeim n's, our ilwelllugs, u.l ihe tpr y.cr u bull we o'iserve in them, aradiul 9ui\ ~ \trii ion of our piTMinalitv.

Allegany County—lts Enterprise, It is gratifying to observe the pi gress of the people of this section in the varied interests of mining, ngri ! culture and mechanics. So marked is this that Allegany county, to the disinterested eye of the traveler, dis : j tiuguishes itself from other spirited • ; and progressive ic -tinns, so 1 ir th it it literally outstrips nil tmiipi iition. r ! Tli ■ immense mining resuftrees of (.bit teeth n have attvneu il tliiihci a | nitmcroiis population, the increase of u-bicb, in the last ten yen: -:, is put 1 j down at dO per cent. The city of r ('uail.erb.iTid is building with more ’ rapidity than any other town in tue > State. In every part of tin city and ' i vicinity buildings arc in rapi I pro ; toss of erection. One ol tue latest • and most important improvements is 1 the establishment of the immense steam rolling mills by the B. A O. It. ‘ It. Co., to which it is expected will ■' be shortly added by the same Ccin -1 pany, machine shops, car factories and other extensive works. Not the 1 least important, also, is t'a i pro ' posed erection of a splendid hotel, at a cost of $200,0Q0 i all ot wine!: 1 not only giving prominence tin I ‘ splendor to the city, but actual an ! 1 lucrative employment to hundreds ’ of additional workmen. *- The Agricultural and Mechanical - Fair to be lie! 1 there on the 17th, t igtlt, l!)th, and2oth of October proni ' isos to be the best yet held. Our county, if is true, is absorbed in her ■ coal interests, but not so in itch as 1 j to make our people unmindful of ag • ! riculturc and mechanics.

Alter I do'' g ampl" justice to the “good tilings" with which the clipper table j was bountifully supplied, I strolled ' ; out to see what was to be seen. 1 1 bad fm md an idea of Frostburg 1 I as lining “a right small, town,” as ) 1 they say in some parts of the conn L | try, but 1 made no calculation on , j finding on. the top of the hill, after 1 | leaving bustling Cumberland such j a slewt distance below, any such a ‘ j tiirii tag' town as Frostburg turned I out to be. Its spacious churches, j its large stores, its vast business, its 1 dashing energy and enterprise, an 1 its line improvements, including that 1 j gem of beauty, the M. E. Church ■ ; now rapidly approaching completion ' ■ -all these indications of “life” as- I toaislicd me. I dare not attempt a description of the gran 1 an 1 sublime beauty' of ' the scenery surrounding Frostburg, but I can say that the pure inoim . tain airis exhilarating and h Tilth giv ing, as is evidenced by the noble i looking specimens of youth and m.iii : hend, busy in tneir vocations, wheih -1 | er mccliuiiicv.l, mercantile or protes ! sii-mtl, all seeming happy, and many <1 of them, doubtless, really so. Amt 1 this brings me to an important point | ! in my letter. I noticed in Frostburg, ■ i as i i most places t I its kind, that , ; tlio business, especially mercantile, . i begins early in the morning, and, ! for obvious reasons, is over, or ncar | ly so, at an early hour in the even j ing, so that it appears to me if a ! general agreement could be entered - into by the merchants to close their places of business at an earlier hour t than they now do, it would be a sa vingio t!iem,as from observed ion ! am led to believe that the business done ‘ by night “dont pay for the caudle.” i iiut there is another reason why such a measure should be adopted: those young men kept in these pla ces of business for so many hours during the day ami night, ha e not . as much time as they should have ■ for recreation, or study and im provement, ami are deprived of the I meins of pleasure and enjoyment l which they would have it the stores , were cl sod earlier—say at half after '! 7 or S o’clock. In conversation ! j with some of the young men, 1 learned ilmt they had tilt the need of this short relaxation themselves, am! also the unprofitableness to those most interested, of the night business, and further, that an at tempt had been made to get all to I agree to close up at a certain hour, i and they were successful with all the business men, save one. Who • ; be was 1 do not know, lmt I would j say to him in behalf of the young | men of the entire town (for all the other merchants are restrained bv I his action) give them a chance : you ! owe it to God, to society, to your I children, and yourself, to do all you can for your young - men ! i>y whom your chihlron and the ! generations yet to come will ho a'- I lectcd for good or evil, and the ! world thus made better or worse by your influence and actions over these I you now control. Again I say. give your young men a chance and God will bless both you and them. 1 hope soon to have the pleasure of another trip to Frostburg, and to j ; find, in addition to the many improve- • I ments now in progress, a change for ' i the better as regards the hour of clo- , sing tiie different ulacos of business. , J.
