little trouble at first in learning and apply

things even, and it ii but just that the new
School Law should have a season for a fair

and the cause of education should meet with
no unnecessary opposition. ' It is far better

The editor of the R t iro id Record, in
speakirr of the late disgraceful proceeding
on the" p irt of tlie citiiens of Erie, Pa. in
buruina bides- JfC auks the followin'
"Where is the Coveroir of the State of

for this emereocy wliich he could not but
have known -would occur?"
Why, air, he is I'tving aij and comfort to

citizens of that place, informing them that
if his auffuat presenie should le foand

We trust that the approaching Democrat
ic Convention of that State, will give him
his walking papers, and show him that the
peaceable Democracy of that State do not
favor him or his unlawful and riotous pro
ceedings. It ia a pity that the great State
of Pennsylvania should be disgraced by
having such a man us William Biler occu
pying the responsible position of Governor
We are slad to learn since writing the a
bovc, that Judire Irwin of the U. S. Court
at Pittsburgh, lias granted an injunction a
gainst the Mayor and citizens of Erie, to
prevent them from destroying the track of
the E. & N. E. railroad.
The Plain Dealer s:sys "The company
will, in pursuance, proceed to- change the
gitage throu'out, rebuild the bridges and

Of course, from the bad state of feeling
at Erie, the line will need careful watching

of which wc published yesterday, no trans
actions of importance have taken place.
There was great animation at the sale of
Messrs. Wilmerding. Since that time there
has been something of a reaction, and par
ties regret having bought so freely, as sev
eral of the parcels can be duplicated at low

however, are moderately firm, and there is
but little apprehension of a material decline

site extreme, of reducing all those that had
been raised, and leaving those .that had
been reduced, kc, i
Mr. Walters thought it but justice to
strike out. ... , . ',:..

went with tha Ilepreteutatiye for the reduc
tion. . ;.: -, . '
: At this point the wheels of the lightning
train of the Board became somewhat clog
ged, which caused it to lag a little t.-
Mr. Coulter elt disposei to go against
the motion; if they were going on in this
way, reducing, he should feel constrained
to yet ask for a reduction on Richland. c
Mr. Jameson's motion was lost ihe a
tueodment agreed to 5 per cent, increase.
' P. S. It will he tf. fa by reference to a
table io another column, that the final ao
tioqof the Board fas to reduce the appraise

'' 'jL Coughing ia Consumption.
The New- York Herald, of .'July' 10th,
states that during the week preceeding, fif
ty persons died of consumption iu that city
Per c ntra, a gentleman called upon us yes
terday, who actually escaped from the fangs
ji tnat aiseaso some years ago, and we are
induced to present the circumstances:
V You speak of cousrbinr continualfY.
Let me suggest to you the query, wlmther
this is not unnecessary and injurious. , I
have' long been satisfied, from experience
And observation, that much of Ihe coughing
which precedes and attends consumption is
voluntary. ' Several years ago, I , boarded
with a man who was in the incipient stages
of consumption.; 1 slept in a chamber over
nis Deuroomt ata was ooligea to hear him
cough continually and distressingly., I en
dured the annoyance Dight after night, , till
it , led me to reflect whether , something
could not he done to stop it. I watched the
sound which the man made, and observed
that he evidently made a voluutoiy effoit
iq cough. After this, I made experiments on
myself, nnd found tlat I could prevent my
Wlf from coughing, sneezing, gaping, int.,
in, cases of the strongest propensity tu these
acts, by a strenuotu effort of the will. Then
I rejected, that coughiug must be irritating
and injurious to the delicate organs that
are concerned in (t, especially when they
are in a diseased state. . What can be worse
for uleerated bronchia or .lungs, than the
violeiitwren.chuig of a cough? It must b
worse than speaking,; A sore on any part
of the body, if it, ia conatantly kept open
by violent usage, or made raw again by a
contusion just when it is healing (and of
course begins to itch) will grow worse, and
may end in death. Certain tnen; a sore
on the lungs may be expected 4of terminate
fatally, if.lt is jonstantly Irritated, and nev
er suffered to heal; and this it seems to' me
is just what coughing does for it '; Oa the
strength of such considerations as these. 1
made bold to ask hint' if he could hot 'stop
coughing. lie Answered NoJ vJ lold him
what I thought about it as abov. ' Hrt .
greed lb make 4 trial and, on so doing, found
to nis surprise that he eouid suppress bit
cough almost entirely? The power of his
will over it, increased as he exercised it,
and in a few days he was' most rid vf ' the
disposition' to cough. '' His health at the
same time evidently improved. And when
I last saw bim, he "was in 'strong 'hopes of
getUrJg utof- death's bands. '1 f . u i -o an
Tint occurred eighteen years ago,f and
the' man comes round nor, an active busi
ness 'man, averrjng that he has not had a
sick day since. Kx.
destruction of the great estahliaament of the
U.rrW . W ii-v .,,),; , .,r
kind draw forth from all quarter such a
degree of sympatheue kitiilneu as is given
lo the Harper and, ami is: our own recent
ail misionuiicsof a similar kind, we fell
when uS'ectionaif gooJnt-as uiftred its act
ive sympathy, how it buoyed us up above
the calamity. The intimate connection l
thu Harpers wiih all department, ff ineuUl
progress in this couutry, j'nj their well
known virtues have m.u'e them f tmiliar ac
quaiutaiices at almost every hearthstone in
He Union where there is a taste for read
ing. Their excellent capci:y for the pub
lication oi aseful books, their well-directed
enterprize, tner,-y, anl unswerviug integri
ty, had enabled them to build up ene of the
noblest establishments ( in dm . world, and
every wlere in English civiliz i;iou the ac
knowledgement was in ic'e that siieh suc
cess us the Harpers had won could rot be
in worthier .hand. They furnished eiaolot-
ineiit tp between five uui six thousand peo
pie, and MX luiuJred of these in their own
establishment. . At half past one o'clock,
Ixst Saturday afurraiion, in the tstab'ish
meuton Pearl street, the Harpers had con
siderably over cue iiUiou dollars' wonli ol
property, tL. fruit of Jlyir own euterpi ize
and industry, nd- iu two hours ironi
the time we have aamed a)l this wealth was
a heap of - smouIdrin aslies. , Th .nat
difficulty in recovelig frou such a disaster
is in the almost uiter impossibility of com
mandijg machinery. It is rare that an Ad
ams or iloe printing pr ss can be obtained
under four months afier it is ordered, be
cause the orders are aliysin advance of
the means ol Adams or Hoe to supply.
But n Monday after the fire the Harpers
had already perfected arrangements for giv
ing employ uient to the mos,t necessitous of
their operatives, and in few days they
will have fifteen or twwenty presses at
wora upon tne re-publicallou ot then valu
able works, of which Ihe stereotype plates
were saved. The entire Mainizine for Jan
uary made up almost entirely of original
matter, splendidly illustrated, nnd which
ws to have been one of the best numbers
of that popular work, was destroyed, but
by Monday af;er the fire the ariagements
were made so perfect that a Urge edition of
the January number will be ready for deliv
ery on its regular day of issue.
But what a lesson for young men is con
tained in, this Harper calamity. V Oirly a lew
years ago these four brother went into tne
city of A'ew York as poor as nay boys iu it.
nicj coi mete to le trn traues. II ey are
new among the most active and enterprising
men in N,.w York: each of iliem has a large
n.,,i!.u u-nuiie, tuiii tne linn possessed in
their bus tiess over one million of dollars.
Vvhiie builoiiigup this fortune, these gentler
mi-Knave larg.-ly ctitributed to tho intellec
tual wealth, of thus confederacy. And now
young man, look at the results of a life of
untarnished integrity. Tne New York
limes says, that several of the insurance
companies on Monday after the tire, sent
word that llie auotmtof lhir liib-ili:ies for
losses would bt sent to ihem, without inqui
ry, whenever it would be mom acceptable,
and numerous oiler of large, amount ol
money were placed at tneir disposal."
They were fortunately uu ler no necessity
for taking advantage of ' this kindiwsa, but
the offers show how conspicuous is- the ia
legritj of these brothers. Most cordially
do we endorse the following remark's of the
Times: "We are inclined to believe that
the brothers Harper have been far mure
touched bv these indications of kindly re
gard, coining, as many of them do, from
men with whom they hare had no business
transacibns for many years, than by any
sense of the pecuuiary loss they have sus
tained. They show that, the bonds of inter
est which their extensive business connec
tions have created, strong ns they may be
are not asstroni as the ties of friendship
and personal esteem which their high-toned
integrity, their unvarying kindness and their

Short Session cf the Ljtislaturi;.
The following, from the Steubenvilie Un
ion corresponds with views we have hereto
fore expressed on the subject: "The wish
is warmly entertained by all elasses of our
citizens, that the Legislators will attend
promptly to the business which mnv be be

tne case last winter. This wish Ks reason

Their shortest and most certain method to
gain respectability and credit as legislators,
is to mane trieir stay in Columbus as short
as possible. As far as we are informed,
mere is. not any great amount of busine?
demanding tiietr attention this winter. All
that is essential to bo done, need not detain
them at the capital exceeding three months.
But at the same time that we wish io hh
a' short session we would not eveilook the
necessity of having such laws ns they may
pass, well matured. , Let them sciutimize
caremUy every sentence which thev may
spread upon the pages of the Statute" Book.
and thus suvo the people from the evils of
u-cousiaerea and halt Uuushed legislation.
It is is important that they should adjourn
soon; but it is more impjrtant that their
worKsiiouid be web and thoroughly done.
Let thera take whatever time may be neces
sary to effect this purpose and then, with
out spending weeks in useless wrangling and
quarrelling, adjourn and come home., .-This
is theeir duty, the people expect its perfor.
mance and we, trust they may not be disan-

Temperance Home Influence"
Under this head the following sensible ar.
tide comes to us in an exchange, without
credit. In a long while we have not seen
more good sense ; compressed into the same
space. .. A crying evil of the times is to nee-
'home teaching,", and lb invoke kvis.
lative aid to cure the evils that grow but of
uv-u uugiiijciiua. uit. j(X, j i t ,
"I am fearfnl that the public are ' looking
too much to the legislature for help in aid of
the temperance cause. Its friends must not
for amomeut forget the benefits and bless
ings of home example. These will influence
when legislation would' be' powerless.
Home teachings are far mora important and
beneficial than the teaohing of the school or
the' pulpit, or the laws of the State we nt v
er forget the lessons taught ns at the home
fireside. These, -whatever may be ' the
changes in after life,- are. never erased or
blo.tted out from our memories. How im.
portent is it then,; that all home lessons
and teachings, and examples; should be of
auchacharaoler as to lead the !'little ones"
of the houcehold to virtue;- to truth and to
Sreai4eat Pierce at Church.

rMie Rev. Mr. Bsird, of Sonth Carolina;
preached a plain, earnest discourse ia the
morn in r. In the aftcrnnon I attended at
the saine place of worship. The President
of the United Slates, although evidently not
expected by the congregttion, was -present
at this second service, he being a stated hear
er elsewhere. There was a simple mnjesty
in my own mujd, very impressive, iu the.
faot that the Chief Magistrate of this mighty
nation should thus come alone and unatten
ded to the hqne of Ovid, and sit down a
mong the humblest ef the people, so miau
stentatiouly that it w4 impossible for me,

President Pierce is a reh'ned,' polished

perfect order, lu person he is, I should
judge, about, live feet ten incite. high So,
far as personal appearance goes, there is no
American who nould not look upon the man
'I am told that he is a careful observer,
of the labb ith; refuses to receive any vis
itors, and refuses to look into any coprf
spondence on that day; is a coiistiHit alien
dam on public worship, and his indolence,
here in favor of sound morals and religion,
is strong and decided. The appearance of
u:e i lesi :eni yesieraay was strictly devsat.
his attention win given' closely to the seri,'

preacher spoke of the manner in which God
overrules the nfllict;ons nnd trials of men,
he was observed lo shed tears. May God
give I iai the garment of praise for the spir

On day before yesterd iy Treasurer Skel

was wreathed in blandest smiles in antrei
pation of a good abave, his authority to col

"Well," says Thompson; "we'll see about
that," at the same time inking the key
from the vault aud snugly depositing it in.
his pocket. Tha brought the Hiiswer.
