The Samaritan vs. the Boatyard.
A friend has pointed out to us in the
Good Samaritan of the 11th inst. the fol
lowing serious allegations from the pen of
a correspoudent at the West :
There is much profanity in man? places in the
weal. I believe there M but one place where they
can oat swear some of these western town, and
that is Ibe l.ewisburg boat-vard. There they ire
entitled to the credit of being able to excel in
sweating, tjwcariug and grog drinking go band
in hand.
Is tli is, true f From all we can gather
respecting Frick k Siifer and the hands iu
their employ, we believe the charge false
and slanderous. Many of them we kuow
to uu as resocciauiu men bj iui-iv
.i- ..i- m..ml ,,f!
t . i ii- i ...... :,,
tuia vi aii viuvi .inuiiiuiiiit nn.muvi.im ,
churches in good standing, and stauncli ,
teetotalers. No grog is or has ever been
allowed in the Yard. Many persons visit
ing there have yet to be pained with the
first oath. We have heard the observa
tion that for so largo a number of tran
sient personsi, their conduct and character
were praiseworthy. Doubtless there are
individuals, there as elsewhere, obnoxious
to censure ; but that is no justification
fur an indiscriminate broadside upon a
whole company of men, their employers,
and a town.
What was the object in making the
charge t For aught we know, it might just
as well be brought against Geddes &
Marsh's Foundry, or tho Lawyers of New
Berlin, or any other collection of men
in labor or business. Why was the odious
fame conferred j ust there ? Can it be part
of the plan of operations by which the
Party Temperance movement is sought to
be promoted ? Col. Siifer is a candidate
for the Legislature ; he docs not pronounce
the " Shibboleth" of the Samaritan ; now,
to represent him as one of a firm keeping
1 . . . ,
Up a t.OlUOmiU Ol Vlyuvm ami
(.IinKR. and thcrebv prejudice acainst him
' . , . . ,
men who uo not Know mm, is a scuciue
worthy of the Temperance Organ which
pronounced an Eulogy upon Jack Cum
in ings alter liis last lau 3 campaign.
Whatever the motive may be, such whole-
sale defamation of entire classes of wen,
for the faults of others for w hich they are
110 more accountable than that Editor or
his Agent, is utterly unjust is placing a
worthy friend of " temperance in all
things" in a false position before comniu-
nity and robbing many poor laboring
men, honest and virtuous as their trauu
cer, of that good name which makes their
t.uls and trials endurable, and gives them
respect among their more favored fellows.
We call upon thc public to notice this at
tack, and watch narrowly thc course of the
publishers of it.
Cummlngs and Congress.
It will be remembered that at the Pem
ocratic Convention in New Berlin, Maj.
Cummiiigs declared on bis honor that he
wanted the nomination for Congress that
he should get it if possible and thr.t if
any oue else got it, it would be without
thc aid of the Conferees from Union coun
ty, who he was allowed to select for him
self. Well, on Wednesday week, the Ma
jor mid his friends were found on the road
to Muncy, but at a speed which elicited
the universal remark that they did not in
tend to reach thc Conference in season to
disturb its harmony ! And when they
did arrive, and the Major was informed
of his defeat (!) he lool.cd just as much as
tounded as if the game had not Item made
up lowj before. On bis return the day
following to his office in Lancaster county
(where he receives 82 per day while
regulating thc politics of Union) he ex
pressed himself highly gratified with the
nomination of Mr. Gamble, and his Con
ferees ratified thc nomination in a strong
recommendation of Mr. G., as follows :
The undersigned, Confereea from Union Co..
appeared after Ibe above aJdres waa adopted.wiih
inalrurtiona to support Ibe nomination of John
(.'omminir, Esq., for Congres
but concur in
the above addreaa.
These facts confirm the allegation of
thc "Inflexible"," that Cummings was
only run to defeat Mr. Sleukcr, and
thereby aid in nominating the brother of
tho man under whom he holds a Canal
office. But M r. Gamble's nomination had
! "arranged" Williamsport and was
! known even to the Whigs, at the Pitting
of the State Convention.
Another Fire in Pottsville.
i Extract from a Letter to a gentleman in
Lcwifcburg, dated
Pottsville, Thursday, Sept. 10.
Dear Sir : This place has again been
visited with that ever destructive element
fire. On Wednesday, about 12 o'clock,
P. M., when all were calmly reposing in
the anus of Morpheus, we were suddenly
aroused by the cry of fire ! fire ! fire ! and
truly there was a fire. It originated iu
Second St., near the Exchange Hotel, and
thc conflagration was so rapid, that the
Exchange barely escaped but not without
considerable damage ; and all thc build
ings fronting on the cast side of Second St.
between Market and Callowhill, Mr. N.
Mills' Hotel, situated on the west corner
of Callowhill and Second Streets, were
entirely consumed. Thc First Methodist
Church adjoining Mills' Hotel, sustained
considerable damage. Three horses and
one cow perished in thc flames.

To the Editor of the Lewitburg Chronicle :
Sir : In your last paper, you ahow that the
re-election of Prolbonotariea ia eualomary with
the Democrats ; but sir that is not the ease with
the Whigs, which to ihein the One Term pnncj

many of us o for a new roan. Ple publish,
and oblige. Sir, Yours, tie. A WHIli.
We must repeat what we said last week
to the Democratic county organ Offun
icrrc for tlic Pcoptr, ami not PeojJe
for Offi'xs ; that is, it is more important to
have an office well filled, even it by one
man, than that many incompetent persons
should profit by its emoluments.
As to One Term Clerkships being an
aduiitted Whig principle, our friend is

BkllMAS is now enjoying a 'second term
as Register & Recorder. In Lycoming, the j
11 IllgS iu jvixis gw --
elected Mr. Martin, Frothonotary.
Now when, even in a single county, was
One Term for Clerkships adopted as aWhig
principle ? The " documents" can not be
found. The truth is, this idea has been
propagated by the Editor of the Times and
other Democrats, and disaffected Whigs
never by a Whig County Convention rep
resenting the mass of the People. Then
why should a good Whig like our corres
pondent be misled by a falsehood, and aid
his opponents in breaking up the organi
zation of his own party, without cause? If
the One Term principle be urged as a
good one, let the t higs call a convention
to confidcr the matter, and settle the
oucstion, for or against; but until then,
j policy, prudence, honor, fair dealing, all
join in urging upon party men to amuc oy
the decisions of the authorities which they
themselves constitute, and of which they
arc a part.
Faiu Pi.at. As has been our custom
since conducting the "Chronicle," we give
j ; tLeir own terms in the preceding col-
limns the proceedings of two new political
movements in this county, the claims and
merits of which every reader will deter
mine for himself.
As to the Dt iiio. ratic Mass Meeting
which takes to itself such lofty preten-
; s;0ns, we ought in justice to say that the
"mass" Inrlcxil.les, Beelitiers and Whigs
all found plenty of room inside the
Court House, aud that instead of the dis
tinguished speakers announced, Maj. Shri
ller and Capt. Huumiel had the kindness
to appear as substitutes. The most spicy
resolution is emitted in the published pro
ceedings. A rnnmr oVtaina come currcney that
Mr. Baum will withdraw before the elec
tion, and the Inflexible?, the Cummings
men, and the Party Temperance men unite
on Esq. Madden. This notion is confirmed
by the language of the resolution at the
Democratic Mass Meeting, where Mr.
Baum is urged as "our next candidate for
the Legislature" allowing thc inference
that Mr. Madden is understood to be
the present candidate. Otherwise, our
friend Madden will not look upon his for
mer success as a surety for the present.
Messrs. Yearick and Haas can a.ure him
that times change as well a nun.
Wilmot in tue Field. In the XII
Congressional District Tioga, Bradford,
aud Susquehauna a triangular contest is
going on with great spirit. John C. Ad
ams, Es.p, of Towanda is thc Whig nomi
nee, and stands the best chance. Thc
Democrats of Susquehanna instructed
their Conferees to nominate a Free Soil er
from Tioga. Bradford nominated a Free
Soil ticket throughout. Tioga nominated
James Lowry, Esq., an Old Hunker.
The Susquehanna aud Tioga Conferees
nominated Mr. Lowry in Conference. But
tho Bradford Conferees and two Conferees
appointed at a Freo Soil Mass Meeting in
Tioga, put in nomination Mr. Wilmot for
thc fourth term. Thus stand matters at
The Senatorial District of Wyoming,
Susquehanna, and Bradford, is also in a
f .-rment. Thc Bradford Democratic Con
vention nominated Geo. Sanderson, Esq.,
of Towanda, for Senator, and insisted npon
a representation in Conference equal to
that of both the other counties, by which
she secured bis nomination. Wyoming
had placed S. S. Winchester, Esq., in
nomination, and refused to withdraw him
to mako room for the Bradford dictators ;
and Susquehanna sympathizes with her in
a measure. The Whigs have in nomina
tion Col. Elhauan Smith, of Tunkhan
nock, and thc prospect is not dull that his
jolly phix may illuminate the Senate Hall
next winter.
Baron Hatnau, the "Austrian Butch
er," recently made a visit to London. A
large Brewery was a particular object of
interest to him, but no sooner was bis
presence known than thc workmen as
saulted him with various offensive missiles,
and hooted bint out of their sight. The
astonished warrior next found himself in
thc hands of thc coal heavers, who dealt
him lumps of coal which grew larger and
flew faster as be luckily for himself esca
ped, and was by thc Policemen taken into
some obscure part of tho city. It is a
happy era when thc masses loath a milita-
ry despot, instead of lauding him. When
all mankind have the right feeling iff re

And here we must regret that thc 30
years' war between Bloom and Dauville,
threatens to be revived. Columbia coun
ty has nominated John M' Reynold, Esq.,
of Buekhorn, as a "Repeal" candidate for
Legislature, and Charles B. Bowman, of
Berwick, is a volunteer candidate, oppos
ed to the repeal. It does not seem rea
sonable that two counties which have be
come legally organized, can ever be
brought together by force, if either coun
ty is opposed ; but if one county is anx
ious she may produce much contention,
strife, and more cost to the State, annual
fv. than all her taxes are worth. One

The State Biudoe, at Duncan's Is-'5'
land was burned by an incendiary on last j
Thursday morning areek. The cost of!
the entire work, was about 8100,000 ; that
of the superstructure consumed, about
if 40,000. The business has not been in
terrupted by the casualty. It was doubt
less thc work of an incendiary, and public
opinion seems to indicate that the bridge
should remain unbuilt.

in the business, that the water has been
let into the N. B. Canal, and that boats
are now running.

In Lewisburg, last night, a aon ol Mr.
Griflith Murphy, aged 17 months.
At lhe residence of her luthcr, near Or

last. Miss Isabella, ekleal daughter of William
Joyce, M. D., formerly of thia place.
Her former aaaoriaiea and our eiuaeua gener-

lively eatly exit Inm lime to eternity, in enrrow.
accompanied with recollections and feelinga sug
gestise of solemn reflection a. Her labor as a
co-worker with lhe writer in lhe Sabbath school
attached to the church of which she was a mem
ber, are recollected with grateful renesoibrancs.
Being naturally poaoeesed ot weil balanced mind
and having euperadded thereto an eicellent edu
cation modeled by Christian parental culture, her
literary and Christian rhaiacter had few superi
ors among her associate. From the earliest
recollections of her, it i well remembered that
lhe inclination of her mind waa for acqairilinna
of lhe solid kind, in perfect contempt of all sup
erficial mental and Christian culture, or raiher
sentimentalia n, so much sought after hy those of
her aex who base not the mind lo think, and so
often mistaken by a ibiMighueas world (and cbh
too) for literary and Christian character. Her
end was what was to be eipected from her life.
She died in the full poaces. ion of her intellectual
facull iea, and a child-like faith in the all-.ulTi-cienev
of her divine Redeemer. Iter last worii

able for you to spend your day in omamonlin;
the outward body, and Glling your immortal
minds with the superficial literary trash of tha
