From a letter it appears that Mr. G.
AV. liurchfitld did not nndestand the
proceedings of the late Democratic
County Convention as we reported
, aad publihhed in these columns. The
follow mg is his verson as per letter :
Walsut, Ts Sept 25th, 1S?S.
B. F. Schweieb, Sir:
In your issue of tliis week, in your
report of Uie proceedings of the Dem-tK-ratic
Cotmty Convention, yon say
tliat the objections to my making a
Ftatomeut, were withdrawn and I de
flared that I was BatisPed. Flease
correct in your next issue the objec
tions were not withdrawn, and the
chairman decided against ma I then
Rjd I was satisfied with his ruling
that I could not be heard, if any one
'' nemler objected, not thatl was satis
fied with the matter in dispute.
Respectfully,
G. W. BCBCHFTELD.

Communication from Main Street
A HWs'i Opiw of Fain It it
Fate, RutTheJVame of the Ex
hibitors, and Participant in the Races
Prof. Robinson Burlesques Their
Effect The Management Gam
birrs Ousted.
Said a ladj to the writer of this ar
ticle, The aecoud Fair at Riverside
Park baa been a grander achirement
than that of last jear ia everything
that ia repaired to constitute a satisfac-
tof exhibition. It ia a fair exhibit of
all the basinets and industries of this
mountain gut community. Tree, it ia
not a large aa Fairs under the auspices
of the State Agricultural Association,
or Faira in the larger and more popu
lous counties, but it is just as com
plete in all of its departments aa the
district affords. It ia a credit to the
county."
How could I say a dissenting word
to the fair speaker's statement It
was a concise statement of the conclu
sion of the intelligence of the assem
bly. It was the testimony of the senses
of the meg and women of comprehend
in; Biiuds at the Park. She added,
"You are a Presbyterian." Just as
quickly as I could say it, I said, "Peace,
peace ; a truce to creeds and religion
now." With a look that was full of
reproof, she contiuued, "I only wanted
to say that if the management is as da
nnmioational as some have declared it,
it had better be kept at that, for it
could not be better " If you knew
who said it you would prize the ccm-
pluet
" It must be fate for people to meet
in this way. Do you believe in fate "
she asked. And then I began to feel
as if my declared truce was about to be
ruled out. "Fate," I said, and I
looked vacantly out through Floral
Hall, over the beads of assembled living
feminine beauty, and over the beauti
ful work of their bands, as if for an
answer to come in at the door, but be
fore 1 got it, she continued, ' No, no ;
I don't mean to ask you if you are
fated to bliss or woe I uieanthat we
are moving along in a rut or groove."
I said, 'Yes," for 1 did not know what
else to say to this intellectual jewel of
a woman ; "as faf as I know we are
stumbling along in about the same way
our fathers did before us." " We
agree," she answered, and gave md a
smile that made my heart aohe, in spite
of my cyuical notions as to the power
of woinm's smiles and flashing eyes ;
aud 1 am glad that we do, for I seldom
meet a man who admits that. You
nien R Waut to be considered original.

6 . , ,,T
1 It s a continuous rut. We
.. ' .... t n i. ir..n. ,t ua ran I crpr
out of it. We call it a Fair ; a new
name, truly, aud that is all
I Lad not seen the situation in that
light. 11 was a new thing to be told
that a modern Fair, fucii as we were
working through, was old as man itself,
and if its assembling of the people ap
peared new, it was only the appearance
that was strange. It was only liko
changing water into ice ; they do not
look alike, but they are the same ele
ments, changed in form only. Here
was a lesson from a woman that tattgbt,
that man will meet for show, amuse
ment, social intercourse, in some form
or other, good or bad, for all, or a few,
just as the spirit of the times are. She
calls it fate, a rut, a groove and I be
lieve in her teaching. The testimony
of ages, as found on the historic page,
bears ber out. Then we have the tes
timony of the past to prove that people
must have show and amusement. But
she added further, " These Fairs are
the least harmful, and most useful
shows instituted among men, unless
those of a religious character are Con
sidered ; and people who are opposed
to Fairs should look at them under all
of these lights."
I could have passed an hour or two
in the company of that lady, and I con
fess to a sigh of regret when she glided
away in response to the beckoning of a
lady friend, for I could not tell when
the pleasure of her conversation should
again be mine.
All this took place in Department
III, and the first object thatl distinct
ly looked on after the disappearance of
this brilliant woman, whose powers, if
she remain in Juniata, will fnrever re
main uubooored and unsung, was the
handsome photographs of Mr. Hess.
Not far off was the penmanship of Wag

through with the niee things under this
roof when I was called down to see the
Poultry. It waa supposed that the
preacher would f ire them especial at
tention, but thete was no one of that
God given calling about when your
correspondent looked at the fowls, and
learned the names of the exhibitors to
be, James MeMeen, H W Berger,
Ellsworth McAuley, W H Moore, S W
Henderson. The same party, after we
bad done the chickens ic, would see
the vegetables ie. I knew London's

Some one said there was wine there,
btit in consequence of my companion
being a cold water man, or at least an
abstainer from all stimulating drioks
except tea, I could not interest him
sufficiently to help look it np, and I
never got back for that purpose. From
the eschewment of wine, either for the
stomach's eake or other purposes, my
friend would go to see the stock, and
before we quite knew it we were over
at the southeast corner of the enclo
sure, admiring a magnificent French
Percheron horse owned by John Me
Meen and Matthew Rogers. The same
gentlemen had on exhibition an Alder
ney bull and cow, that did one good to
see. 1 here was other blooded cattle
there by Wm Christy, James McAuley,

Tie trotting race were all pleasant
ly gone through with, and the horses
were owned or driven by T J Mid
dagh, Abraham Moist, Reuben Moist,
E D Parker, Di Bratee, John Cunning
bam, John Hays, Samuel Strayer,
Isaac Sieber, C H North, David Sieber,
all of this county, and B F Myers, of
Altoona, and H Byers, of Harrisburg,
but the crowning horse race or trot was
reserved for Prof. John Robinson,
most skillful Knight of the razor, in
Patterson, to conduct, to the infinite
amusement of alL His profusely cut
Brother Jonathan style of clothing,
and the preferred bat of the same char
acter and all the trappings of bta horse
aod tehicte, led a number to exclaim,
"The Professor is the Tery Don Quix
otecf the raees.". Ilia performance
made many feel as if all the racea
had better be denominated a farce.
The Professor is a character, and when
the live of the local distinguished peo-
plo come to be written be should not
be left out. 1 missed the companion
ahip of the lad referred to in the opco-
irg of this communication, when the
Professor was ia the height of his per
formance, for I should have been glad
to have bad her opicion as to its effect
Would she ray thai in effect it woald
reach as Gar as any other performance
for good on that grofind, considered as
a burlesque ! It is said that Dos
Quixote did mbre to extinguish Knight
Errantry, its tournaments and attend
ing gambling, than all the serious ex
hortations that had been delivered
against it
The half-mile race, participated in
by two ICdians and one white man,S. B.
! Rickenbacb, was an interesting one.
j They all ran well, and as the white man
j followed the Indians closely, I could
'not help thinking that it looked like
: destiny running out the Red Man. The
white man was following him as sure as
fate.
The race of one fourth of a mile, in
dulged in by boya under 12 years, was
aa spirited and exciting to the specta
tors as a race by the coming generation
of that age eouli be. The partici
pants were John Ellis, Willie Caveny,
S. Loudon Todd, Fred Wright, William
BankSj Charles Doughman thd others.
The pedestrian James Adaas, de
livered himself of a walk that has given
many people a new and possibly a bet
ter idtis as to how speedy walking nisj
be accomplished.
The management of the Fair was
kept to a moral status. At one time
gambles were in a glee ; they thought
that an entering wedge had been effect
ed, and by the opening thus made a
lodgment for the whole fraternity, from
the selling of pools, opvnly, to She Three
Card Monto game, would be certain.
But fate was against it. Tho manage
ment ruled in such a way that the
ground was soon rid of them, and the
outside concern that was set up, was
poynced upon by Officer Wilson, and
the offender arraigned before Justice
lluzzard, who, in the leniency of his
judgment and heart, and agreement
of the parties, ltft them " off by
ruling that tbey return the fleece that
they bad shorn from a green country
i youth, pay the costs, and leave the
country, which it is believed they did,
for they were not seen afterwards. -
I would write you more of this plea
sant and profitable Fair, but 1 have
already trespassed largely on your
space. So adieu ftr the present, with
the expectation of bearing soon again
from MAIN STREET.
Amono the many meritorious things
on exhibition at the late fair of the
Riverside Park Association, none were
more interesting than the display of
fruit by the Oberholtiter Brothers,
and others. Our people could there
see that as fine fruit is produced in
Juniata county as anywhere in the
country. TVe were recently shown a
number of peaches raised by Daniel
Kloss, Esq., on his farm in Walker
township, which surpass in cpuility,
flavor and size any we have hereto
fore seen, one of these weighed C
ounces, and was as fine a Hpecimen of
perfect growth as can be produced
anywhere. .
The Perry county Advocate ssys :
On Tuesday of last week Mr. Absalom
Stahl was found lying behind his plow
team, in George Corngable's clearing,
in Spring township, in a dying condi
tion. The other hands in the field no
ticed the team standing aod Mr. Stahl
lying on the ground behind the plow.
Ou going to Mr. Stahl, they found him
dying. A physician was called, who
pronounced the cau.-e of his death to be
heart disease, to which be was subject.
Mr. Stab' was an industrious man, and
leaves a Widow and five children.
Miffli.ntown, Sept. 17, 1875.
.Vr. Schwtier Sir : To ask for space
in your columns at this late day after
Inspection, is acting on, or under the
adage of '-better late than never." It
is "better late than never" to tell some
thing of our trip to Pot;sville for In
spection, and I will do it as briefly as 1
know how, for you know that the first
duty of a soldier is not to talk much
but to act to the point.
We were called to meet at our Ar
mory on Monday night, September 13,
to prepare to march, at 5 o'clock next
morning. On our arrival there we
found Col. Robioson there with the
"Juniata Scouts," in line, with between
fifty and sixty men commissioned offi
cers and enlisted men and the "Gray
bill Zouaves," commanded by Captain
Cornelius MoClellan, numbering forty
commissioned and enlisted men.
The Juniata Cornet Band accom
panied us and enlivened ua with tbeir
superior music. A Company, number
ing forty-nine commissioned and en
listed men, joined us in Perry eouoty.
They were tine-looking soldiers. On
our arrival at Hatrisburg we were
largely reinforced by Infantry com
panies that were changing cars at that
place for our destination, namely, Potts
ville, for which place we started by
way of the Reading Railroad. At
Jonestown we were reinforced by one
company. At Lebanon our number
was increased by two fire companies,
and the 'olonel and .Vajor. of the Re
giment. Col. Gabm is every inch a
soldier. He Commanded a company in
the 47th P. V. in the late Rebellion,
and many Juniata boys marched under
him through the swamps of Florida,
and with bim as leader took a part in
the Red River expedition, and notably
Worthy of mention is the old flag bearer,
Beu Walls, over aixty years of age.
The Colonel says he was a remarkable
man for endurance, and was brave from
the loweat depth of his bis heart. I
We reached Pottaville at 11 o'clock
A. M. The Colonel formed the line,
and marched op Central street to head
quarters, and there reported to the
gentlemanly commander, General Latta,
and bis assistant, J. .V. Awl. The
command was moved np -Market street
to the People' Line Railway depot,
and there rs and were taken some
two miles to a beautiful grove, where
tbey were inspected by Governor Hart
ran ft and staff, upon the completion of
which we were returned to town, where
the Zouaves were met by gentlemen
properly delegated to invite, to dinner
at the engine bouse of the "Good In
tent Firs Company." The invitation,
it is needless to say, was accepted, and
ample justice done to the good things
provided. The citizens of Pottsville
may be proud of this company. Tbey
threw open tbeir parlors (or our recep
tion, which was quite a treat after the
fatigue of the ear and inspection.
After a short rest -we formed line
and counter-marched and then filed
left, down Norwegian St. to the heights
that Overlook the towo, when all the
troops were drawn np in line and re
viewed by the Governor and staff, after
which the march of review was taken
np through the principle streets. This
maneuvering eon&nmed the afterstran.
At the proper place and time the com
mand was baited and pat Under com
mand of their respeetite commanders
and wiai?se5.
.. Two hours remained, in which to do
PottstHlei aod many of the "boys"
aaw a g'eS3 deal of the town in that
time. Traib time came ; we. boarded
it and the next morning at 3 o'clock
we arfived at -Vifflin, sale aud sound.
The members of the Band and the
Zouave company are of opinion that
theFS are few men better at 'entertain
ing strangers than the members of the
Good Intent Fire Company Tbeir
name is most appropriate. ;
livervthine passed off pleasantly,
and Paddy McGuire kept in his hole,
as there we're too many "goons about
for good health. And thus we', close
for the next year.
