TINE WELL SPENT.
After having Jabored hard during the
Spring, Summer and early pait of the fall
every individual needs a few days of res';
and we have often thought that two or
three days could not bo better spent than
in attending upon our County Fairs.
There are many persons who do not
view this matter in its proper light, but
consider the timo speut at fairs as lost.—
This is certainly erroneous. It must be
admitted that the Agricultural interests
of our County exceed all others, for we
are emphatically an agricultural comuiu- )
riity, and we should lend a helping hand
to everything that is calculated to ad
vance this interest; and in -order to do ;
this wo should not act entirely on selfish
principles, but be willing if necessary, to
make some sacrifice as individuals in or
der to build up and develop the Agricul
tural and Mechanical interests of our
county. Experience and observation have
clearly shown that wherever county fairs
are properly appreciate! and supported
by the people all their interests aro en
hanced thereby. Let all who possibly
can, not only attend the fair, but bring
something for exhibition. The following
from the American Agriculturist for Sep
tcmbfcr, is worthy of notice :
"Save time to attend the Fairs ; and
be sure to take or send something to help
the show. Have it in tho best possible
order, and don't expect so confidently to
get the prize as to be made uncomforta
ble if you lose it. It is no shame to be
beaten, but it would be shameful for a
poor article to take a prize over a better
one. Therefore rejoice that something
more excellent than your's could be rais
ed and that the raiser brought it. A
good part of your reward should be in
having contributed to make a fine show.
A man seldom gains credit to himself by
dcolaring openly that things he has, at
home, are much better than those exhib
ited. Such statements if made
should be said privately and generally
in self condemnation for not hav
ing brougt tho articles. The unsuccess
ful competitor seldom gains more than an
uneviable notoriety by openly impugning
the motives of judges.
Every one is happy to receive prizos,
and the hope that he may, is a great in
ducement to present articles in competi
tion. The honor and credit should count
for much, the money for very little, and
really the unselfish motive of contribu
ting to make a fine show, should bo the
chief inducement to exert ones-self for
the fair. An exhibitor going to the fair
with the3c feelings will not leave his wag
on loads of fruit, vegotablcs, and dairy
products outside, while he searches thro'
the exhibition tables to find out if he will
be morally certain of tho prizes, before
he decides to exhibit. There is nothing
criminal in this, but it is certainly not
honorable aud commendable."
A SMALL BUT VALUABLE INVEST,
MKNT.—A good practical buisness educa
ion, such as can be acquired at the
Iron City College, Pittsburgh Pa. is a for
tune to any young man, and just what
every,one should have, no matter what
his vocation in life may he. It is not
only valuable to the merchant or general
buisness man, but also to tho farmer, me
chanic and professional man; and since
the terms of tuition are so verry low, we
wonder that any person should think of
permanently settling down to any buis«
nessas a life calling before having avail
ed himself of the advantages afforded by
a course of training in this popular insti
tution. Wo have yet to hear it said by
any who have graduated there,that it was
not the best investment that they have
ever made.

ACCIDENTS.—Sirs. Schneidle, a ger
maa lady, aged about sixty, was return
ing home from church, on the Sabbath
from Harmony, and when about a mile
West of Zelienople on the Rochester
roid her horse, which was a spirited
one, frightened and wheeled with her.—
As she fell out of the saddle, her foot
caught in the stirrup, and she was drag
ged several rods on the ground. Her leg
| was badly broken and bleedingly profuse
ly, but she managed tj creep into a fence
! corner, where she remained about tw >
j hours befure any one passed by. A3sis»
I tauce being promptly rendered her limb
was set, and she was taken to her 1
on Brush Creek, six miles distant.
—A son of Mr. Samuel Shuler, of
Harmony, aged about niiifr years, whilst
playing in Ziegler & Latchaw's Machine
shop,was unlucky enough to put his hand
into some part of the machinery by which
two fingers of his right hand were s 0
much crushed as to need removal.
B©-Whilc science has labored for the
benefit of the human race, it is but a
poor return to have imitaters start up
and claim merits for their articles which
never existed except in appearance.—
Sinco Hall's Vegetable Sicilian Hair Re
ncwer has been introduced, and the rem
edial effects of this valuable preparation
have been so plain, ( a legion have com
menced manufacturing their nostrums. —
In point of merit there is no commpari
son, no more than the counterfeit resem
bles the genuine bank bill. One has a
value, while the other is worthless and is
palmed off upon the unwary. The effects
of Hall's Sioilian Hair Renewer upon
the head is to renew the growth of the
hair, restore it to its natural color when
it has become gray, and cures all diseas
es of the scalp. The effects are seen from
the first bottlo.— Weekly Times.
STATE FAIR.—The Penna. State Fair
will be h jid at Pittsburgh from Septem
ber 24th, to September 27th. The pre*
liiiums offered are very liberal, embracing
live stock and all useful articles in hus
bandry, housewifery, manufactures, and
farm products. The premiums are most
liberal in every department, exceeding
810,000 in the aggregate. The princi
pal Railroads will issue Excursion tickets
—return all articles which are exhibited,
if any remain unsold, freight free.
We are informed that the Heydrio
Steam Plow—lately patented, will be ex
hibited, and operated during the fair.—
For premium lists address A B. Longakcr,
Pittsburgh, Pa. See advertisement in this
issue -
Suylf our friends will use preperations
for restoring gray hair they should use
the best in the market. Our attention
has lately been called to an article which
has an extensive sale and a very high
reputation, known as Ring's Vegetable
Ambrosia, and we are inclined to think
that it possesses more desirable and less
objectionable qualities than any other in
the market. It restores gray or faded
hair to its original color in a most re
markable manner, and by its invigorating
and soothing properties remove* all dand
ruff and humors from the scalp. Give it
a fair trial and you cannot fail to like it.
THE NATURAL LAWS OF MAN.—There
are several remarkable articles in THE
HERALD'OP HEALTH for August. One
of these is from Rep Henry Ward Beech
er, on the natural laws of man, which
ought to be read by everybody. This
monthly grows better and better every
month. $2 a year —20 cants a number.

JESSE M. JONES,
BIBLE DICTIONARY.—"A good Bible
Dictionary is a desideratum ; especially
at this time, when the church through
the Sabbath School and Bible Class, is
seeking to secure an intelligent and thor
ough acquaintance with the word of God.
The present edition of Smith's Bible Dio
tionary is a timely publication, and will
be highly prized by all Bible Students.'
See advertisement in another column.
TIIIEVS AND BURGLARS. —Of late we
have heard of houses and Stores being bro
ken open and robbed; especially has this
been the case in the Southern part of our
county; and a few eve lings since, as we
are informed, some one who ought to be
in the Penitentiary,tried to pick the lock,
on the front door of Roessing and Steins
Store but failed to make an entry. There
are too many lazy loungers hanging about
whose movements should be watched.
MINERAL PAINT.—We refer our rea
ders to the advertisement headed "Paints
for F&rhiers and others," manufactured
by Daniel Bidwell, 254 Pearl Street, N.
Y. This Paint has been in use twenty
years, and wherever used pronounced the
best mineral paint, yet diseovered. It is
superior to all other mineral paints, in
color and body, and requires much less
oil, and is believed to be more durable.
Two coats is, ordinarily sufficient, and 3
makes a superior finish. It dries readily
and forms a coat proof against wealther
anfi climate. Read advertisement.
For the Citizen.
MR. EDITOB : —On the morniog of
Aug. 26th, Mr. John H. Crawford, of
Scrubgrass township, Venango oounty,
Pa.' having hauled a loan of coal, was
about to throw it into a coal house near
where several hives of bees were situa
ted, when the horses having been stung
by one or more of the bees, became rest
loss, and ran the wagon against tho board
on which the bee-boxes wero sitting, and
overset five or six hives with bees in them
He could not, at first, get the horses to
move away from the bees although they
were covered with them and wore per
fectly frantic with their stinging. He
succeeded*in pulling off all the harness
and by the help of some others, at last
got the horses away. But they were so
badly stung that they ran sometimes, then
would stop, rear up and strike furiously
with their fore feet, and again throw
themselves on the ground, perfectly un
manageable and mad with suffering. It
was unsafe for any one togo near them, i
Such a sight never had beeu witnessed 1
before by those who saw them. They
both diedbeforo 2 o'clock, P. M., on the
same day of the accident. Mr. Crawford
was very badly stung, especially on the
head, as he had lose his hat in getting
the harness off the horses, but it is not
thought he is in a dangerous condition.
It is astonishing that he got the horses
unharnessed without receiving injury
from them, for they reared and stamped
and struck with their feet in a furious
manner. The horses belonged to his
uncle, John Crawford. They were a
good team, and the loos is considerable,
and occurred in what seems to the writer
a rery singular way. J. R. C.

OP THE rirto* HEPI;BLIC»S STATE
CENTRAL COMMITTER.
COMMITTEE ROOMS, IIARRISBURG,
August 27th, 1567. To the People of
Pennsylcnia: Fellow Citizens —ln a re
cent address from this Committee your
attention was invited to sundry issues
and principles involved in the pending
canvass ; and also to the poiitial opinions
and judicial decisions of George Shars
wood. A short review ofthe principal
occurrences, since tho last State cam-
now considered proper. The con
test of 1866 was fought, in tho main,
upon the amendments proposed by Con
gress to the Consituatiou of the United
States. These were national issues ; and
on the one side were arrayed the Union
Republican party and the "Boys in
Blue;" and on the other President John
son, the Democratic party, and all the
rebels and their sympathizers from one
end of the Union to the other. On
those momentous issues Pennsylvania
ralKed in her strength, and polled over
one hundred ami forty thousand more
votes than at her preceeding annual elec
tion. Among the results were the tri
umphant election of Major General John
W. Geary for Governor, and tho Indorse
ment if Congress, by the return of a
delegation more unanimous for the right
than ever known before in the history of
tbe Commonwealth. Other loyal States
united with us, and the insane wicked
"Policy" of his new frends and allies,
wag overwhelmed by the unprecedented
and magnificent popular majority ol four
hundred thousand votes ! Jivery State
which had been faithful to the National
Government and the cause of the Union
during the war,approved the amendments.
Every rebel State, except Tenness'ee,
rejected them ; and under the rebel pro
visional governments created bv Presi
dent Johnson, rebel power resumed its
authority, and became dominant in their
executive, legislative, and judicial de
partments. Vagrant and labor laws vir
tually re enslaved the freedmen. Loyal
men were outlawed and trampled tinder
foot; and the revived spirit of the rebell
ion was everywhere triumphant. Riots
murders, outrages, and assassinations
were the order of the day, and security
foro'uherthe lives or the property of
loyal men was nowhere found. Treason
had front seats, loyalty had been made
odious, and traitorous conspirators against
the life of the nation were vindictiveand
rampant.
Such was the condition of public af
fairs in the South when Congress con
vened in december, 1866. This nation
had solemnly resolved, and voted, that
the Union should be restored on the ba
sis of loyalty and jnstice; and to this end
was the Fortieth Congress elected. Hence
were passed the Reconstruction laws in
execution ofthe recent popular verdict.
Tho President vetoed them, refusing to
accept or abide by the decision of the
people, to whom he had so olten and so
vauotingly appealed. Congress ro ens
acted them over the vetoes, by more than
the required two-thirds ; and they are
now the laws of the lied. Under them,
including the amendments of last session,
icconstruction is rapidly progressing;
and would doubtless ere long be success
fully accomplished, but for the persistent
obstructions by the President, in defiance
of Congress and the popular will. Jus
tice is being done; loyal men, white and
black, have been protected from the ma
lice of defeated rebels; treason, in a meas
ure at least, has ' been made odius," and
traitors have been compelled "to take
back seats"—as Andrew Johnson, in a
lucid interval, declared they should.
Even tho better portion of the rebels
admit the justice of these reconstruction
laws and cheerfully acquiesce in their
provisions. General James Longstreet,
a distinguished rebel officer, in a recent
published letter from New Orleans, ex
presses himself as follows ;
"I shall set out by assuming a prop
osition that I hold to bo self-evident,
viz ; The highest of human laws is the
law that is established by appeal to arms.
The great principles that divided politi
cal parties prior to the war were thorough
ly discussed by our wisest statesmen.
When argument was exhausted resort was
had to compromise when compromise was
unavailing,discussion was renewed and ox
pendents were sought, but none could be
found to suit the emergeucy. Appeal was
finally mado to the sword, to determine
which of theclaims was the true construe,
j tion of tho constitutional law. The sword
has decided iu favor of the North ; and
what they claimed as principles, caccs to
be principles, and are become law. Tho
views that ice hold cease to be principles
because they are opposed to law. It is,
threrefore, onr duty to abandon ideas that
are obsolete, and conform to the require\
ment» of law. The military bill and
amendments are peace offerings.
We should accept them as such, and
place ourselves upon them as the
starting point from which to meet
future political issues as they arise."
Jeff. Thompson, another rebel General.
In a late letter to George D. Prentice,
Esq., indorses the reconstruction laws of
Congress thus :
"The confederate government wiped
out States rights the first year of its
existence, a bloody war wiped oat slavery,
and wiped out the confedercy, so they
are obsolete ideas ; and the plain question
now presented is, 'Will you accept
citizenship under our terms, as contained
I in this law ?, and 1 emphalicallg answer
j ye *
| It is greatly to b# regretted that terms
which aro so acceptable to tho Ggliting
repels of the South, should be so
distasteful, and cause so much clamor
from their non-combatant sympathizers
in the North.
The enemies of the United Ststes hav
ing been finally defeated in battle, uni- j
ted their efforts to elect sympathizers |
from the North, and procure tho admis
sion of enough rebels from tjio South
to enable them, through Congress, to at
tain what they had lost in the field.
This programme was frustrated by the
loyal people at the ballot box in the
election of tho Fortieth Congress. De
feated in open war, and again in Con
gress, these bafjled conspirators, as a last
resort, are endeavoring to save "the lost
cause" through the courts. They deny
that anything has been settled by the
war ; and boldly proclaim that "all til ese
grave pendiug questions" must be de
cided, 'just pi fact, us they would have
been deckled had they arisen eight years
ago, or had no icar taken place." ( Phil
adelphia Age, July Bth.) They not on
ly deny the constitutional power of Con
gress to impose terms upon the rebel
States or people, but deny that Congress
itself is a lawful body, because the reb
el States are unrepresented. Ileuce,
the recent application to the Supreme
Court of the United States for injunc
tions, to nuillify the lleoonstructiou laws
ol Congress in Mississippi, Georgia,
aud other rebel States. Iu the same in
terest, and of the s.ime character, is the
nomination of Gejrge Sharswood, a well
ku urn and life long State rights man, fur
tlie Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, lie
judicially denies the purer of Congress to
issue paper mouey, or to give it value by
making i; a legal tender. ( linria vs. Trotl
Legal Intelligencer, of March 18. 1804, J. age
92.) Judges Thompson and Woodward, of
the same court, not only announce those
same doctrines in the case of Nervine vs.
Stiitnr et al. ( Intelligencer ef June 10
and 30, 1805, )> ayes 188 add 205,) but in
the cases of Knecdler et al. vs. Lrne et al.
(8 Wright's lleports, page 238), denied the
power of in time of wai to draft
men intj the military service. The prins
ciples declared in these decisions were an
hostile to the national existence and per.,
petuity as any assault ever made by
General Lee and his armed legions at Get
:ysburg or elsewhere. It requires no ar
gument to demonstrate that if those decis
ions on currency and the draft had pre
vailed, and beceme the established law of
the land, success in the war would have
b-en more impossible than if the rebel ar
my at Richmond had been reinforced with
half a million of men. Is it safe, therefore
to plase another man, entertaining these
opinions, on the Supreme Bench of the
State?
Forewarned should be forearniel. These
Superior Courts are now the " last ditch'
of the rebellion ;.atid the country calls upon
the "Boys in Blue," and every loyal voter
to rally once more to the rescue !
Complete your «ounty and township or
ganizations without delay. With this thor
oughly done,victory isjsure, without it there is
danger. Renew at once everywhere the
Loyal Leagues and associations, which
proved of such vast service during the war.
Let every patriotic man feel that he has
something to do in the good work, and pro
ceed forthwith to do it with all his might.—
Exclude all side issues local quarrels, and
personal aspirations, and labor only for the
public good. Be not deceived by the stale
clhinor Jnbout negro equality and negro
suffrage. These worn out hobhies were
supposed to iiave been ridden to death at our
last annual elections,when,os now they were
declared by our enemies to be the great is
sues of the contest. They are now raised
up and brought upon tlpitrack again, mount
ed by the same riders,and destined to thesame
ignoble end. Be not discouraged by the
vain boasting of our advesaries. They have
been ingtoriously defeated in every con
test for years and patriotic people of tie
State have heretofore nobly sustained us,
ana the cause of the country, under the
heavy pressure and discouragement of drafts
taxation, bereavement and carnage; and
when nothing but an abiding faith in an
overruling Providence, and in the justice of
out c iuse, enabled us to see the end. Surely
there can bo no faltering now when the goal
is almost reached ! and w ion one more uni
ted rally for our principles and our (big will
enable us t> secure the ripe fruits ofthe late
dreadful civil war, and to garner them safe;
ly fur ourselves and our children.
We stand over the ruins of a gigantic re
bell ion, tho most formidable enemy ever en
countered fby republican iiifti tut ions.—
VVe stand close by the graves of three hun
dred thousand of our noblest men, who coun
ted their lives well spent when offered freely
for Liberty antMJnion. In the presence of
their speechless but eloquent dust; in the
presence of tho doubting and sneering ene
mies of Government, at home and abroad
in full view of the oppressed millions, who
from beneith crushing despotisms watched
our flag with tears, and hopes, and prayers,
throughout the four long years of bloody
conflict, before a God of justice, and in the
name of all that makes faithfulness t > Ilim,
and honor among men, wo stand pledged to
securo and maintain f>rever the principles
for which our brothers died.

Little Churl,o wa« bright and playful only ono short
week ago, the light of oar little family circle, but the
ruthless hand of disease was laid upon him. and the
little flower was nipped in the bud, but wo have tho
sweet consolation to comfort us that he is gone to the
Arms of Uim who said, ''Suffer littlochildren to como

Candiesf, E*q., in Centre township, on the mornlngof
the 27th August. Mr*. Elizabeth, beloved wife of 11.
0. Tuttle, aged 31 years, 7 months and 14 days.
The deceased was a dutiful daughter, an effuctionate
wife, ami bio in all the social relations of life, and for
many years an humble and consistent member of tho
Presbyterian church, ller sufferings wore protracted
anil severe which she bore without a murmur and with
choerful resignation to the Divino will, as ono who
••knew in Whom bhe believed. At early dawn while
the gloom of night was receding sho calmly, without
a struggle fell asleep in death in full hopes of a glorious
immortality ; "For they who sleep in Jeans, will UOD
bring with Him."'

o'clock, A M., Miss Amelia Zu-gler, dnugter of Col.
Jacob and Sarah Zieglef, aged ;*1 years.
Tho deceased was an active and acceptable member
of tho Episcopal church. For two years previous to her
death she was one of the most active members of the
Society, and took a do«p interest in everything that was
calculated to advance the cause which she had espoused
She was instrumental to a very great extent in raising
the funds for the purchase of tbe splendid new Organ
for tho Church. She did not live to hear its sweet me
lodious sound'. liar lifeless form was conveyed to the
church of her choice where the funeral services were
performed, and if departed spirits are made bappiet by
what transpires npen earth we have no doubt that het ,s
rejoiced over tho sweet mnsU; that flowed from tbo in
sti'Ument that she lahorod so faithfully to procure. She
was the first of the Society to pass ew.iy, in honor of
whose services the sweet sounds were wafted upon th 0
heavenly breeze.
Sho passed away in peace.
