Dissolution of lWncrLip in the adverti-
einc C'luiuu".
Since Nov. 131 one-third of accntu -
ry ago I have been enraged in printing
newspapers, with few and short intermis
sions of other engagements. From twelve
to fifteen hours a day. hands, head and
heart have been engaged in labors beariug
on thia business. ThauLs ui.dcr tjod to
a pood constitution an 1 temperate habits,
this exacting and wearing devotion ha? not
left me a wreck. Yet there are symptoms
of nature which admonish me to seek
Fonie less onerous employment. Lm2 un
settled accounts afc-o require attention,
and will take time to arrange.
Of my political record, 1 have entire
taiisfaetion, as fir as one can have in this
imperfect world, where choices mast Le
made. I have supported, or voted for, as
President Adams, Clay twice, Harrison
twice, Taylor, Scott, Fremont, and Lincoln
twice. For Governor of Pennsylvania
Kitner, Banks, Markle, Irvin. Johnston
twice, Pollock, Wilniot, Curtia twice.
Freedom to Man as a God-given right,
and a sound National currency. Internal
Improvements, and a Protective Tariff, as
matters of domestic policy, are principles
which I have advocated, and which now

In proportion to popnlation, the remote

as those who are more exposed and who
have more to lose.
In Potter county, one rofer out of seven

I richer eounties can easier spare men, than
; tbe poorer can.
Tboee northern eounties have filled, in
part, the quotas of the lower counties, and
i also their own. They should be in some
