"VVei*l«\v Monks, OF MIDDLBSEX. THE Grand Jury la-t week acted upon some tsercnty bills, finding some sixty true ones, and did all this \u about three and a half days. IT will be seen by the proceedings of the Republican County Convention , of Monday that less than seven hnn dre<l votes were ea.-t at the primary 1 election last Saturday. I POME of the maple tree leave, an- ] already beginning 1 to color. A week or two more and the "sear and yellow leaf" will have come—a renewed re- ' minder of the flight of tirue. THE request to announce lectures on National Reform in certain places in the county, on the evenings of Bth, 9th ' and 1 Oth insts., came too late for inser- i tion last week and hence too late to be ] of any service. THE jubilee services, celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the erection of St. John's Church, (in the western part of the county), will appear upon our first page next week, there not be ing space for them this week. MB. J. W. MONKS, the successful candidate for Jury Commissioner, is one of the best men in the county. His good standing with his neighbors induced them to warmly recommend liim. He will make a discreet and trustworthy Jury Commissioner. THE communication of "Schwartz" in regard to our county fair, came too late for publication last week. The sentiments of the writer, in urging more iuUjx-nt to be taken in our county fairs, are good, but as the fair has al ready commenced it would l>e useless to insert the communication this week. MB. LUCAS, who was a member of the Grand Jury last week, was the tirrtt colored man who ever occupied that position in this county. Some two or three colored citizens have served on traverse juries heretofore, but Mr. Lucas was the firnt a< a grand jurf>r, and, what is l>etter in the matter is, that his f« llow-mcml>ers of the jury unite in saying that he was a very good and intelligent juror. THE Grand Jury at Harrisburg sim ply did its duty and what every honest man in the State demanded it should do, to-wit, find true bills against all parties charged and proven before it to have used money or been guilty of bribery last winter during the sitting of the Legislature. But when, through some influence, it was induced to turn aronnd and present for conspiracy some of the committee appointed by the Legislature to prosecute the cases, arid also other mem tiers of the House of good reputation, then the j»eople will say that it is an attempt t > retaliate, bulldoze or intimidate. The charge against Mr. Wolfe and -others is that they played the detective, set a trait, so to speak, to catch those they sus pected using or receiving money for votes. Suppose they did consult and act together towards that end. Is that a coruipiracy to do an unlawful act ? How can two or three innocent per sons Is: guilty in bringing guilty ones to justice ? How can an effort to up bold the very Constitution itself tortured into a conspiracy ? Cannot the members of a Legislature who saw and knew the corrupt nse of money being made consult together how to expose it without being liable to the charge of con*pira.'-i/ 7 This is too absurd, and the law will protect the faithful public servants from such ap parent malice. When the day comes that the honest cannot ferret out and bring to punishment the dishonest, without endangering their own safety, then we will have come to singular times indeed. Dedication B-arviooo. The dedication services on Sunday last of the new German Lutheran Church, of this place, was an event of more than ordinary interest, owing principally to the great number of peo ple present. At 10 o'clock the mem bers First assembled at the old church building, corner of Wayne and MeKean streets, and aft'-r some preliminary ser- ] vices there, and many expressions of ' farewell regards for the old building in which they, a« a church, had wor shipped for now about fjirty years, they formed into procession and marched to the new C'hureh building, corner of Washington and Jefferson streets. | The procession was the largest, or • longest at least, ever known in this i piuee and extended from the old church to the new one, a distance of eleven squares. Not less than a thoits- j and |>crsons were in it, while there were i many others present hut not joining in ' the procession. At the new church 1 the usual dedicatory services were had ( and preaching in both German and En glish, Rev. K. Cronenwett, the pastor, being assisted by his father and Rev. 1 Feltman, of Ohio. The audience room of the new , church is a large one, yet it could not r seat all present.. The church, how- < ever, has secured mainly its object in having more room and a better build- f ing for its members. We noticed the ( large room was easy to In; heard in, I I the a'-cou.-tic arrangement* therefore being good, and while the new build ing might not come up to the present standard of the taste of ail, yet a- a wLole it will stand as a worthy monu ment of the enterprise and the efforts of the members of the German Lu theran Church of B'Jt'er. 103 rd Reg. Reunion. To-morrow the surviving members of the 103 rd Iteg. Pa., Volunteers in the war. will have their first r< union in ! Butler. Proper arrangements have been made to make the occasion as pleasant as possible. California Election. The California State election of la-t week ha- resulted more favorably to the Republicans than was evc-a ex pected. A Republican Governor and three, at least, out of the four mem bers of Congress, ar • elected, with perhaps others of the Stat;.- ticket. The returns are not fully received as vet, but enough to warrant the claim of a Republican victory over all the different parties in the field. Maine Election. The news from the Maine State election, held on Monday, is of the most cheering character, showing Re publican gains over last year. Ihe Republican candidate for Governor will have a large plurality over either the Democratic or Gre< ;iba< k candi dates, and possibly a majority over both. But the Legislature will Is: Re publican strongly, which will have the deciding among the candidates fur Governor in case no one has a majority over all. This is therefore a gain from last vear and a decided victory for the Republicans All hail to Blaine, of Maine! _ Reception of 11th Reserves. A meeting of the citizens of the town of Indiana, J'a., was held in that place recently to take steps for the proper reception of the survivors of the 11th Reg. Pa., Reserves, who have a reunion there on the 25th of this month. Committees were ap pointed to make the necessary arrange ments, and the citizens of the town of Indiana will doubtless cordially greet the survivors of the old 11th and make them w&lc'ifßc to that place on the 25th. Two companion from this county were in the l'th Kescrves, the survivors of which, we understand, all intend going the reunion on the 25th. That Problem Again. ."A i'ti. Editnr.- —2O cent, of }« r cent, is 2-15lhs. The question then is: A spent two-fifteenths more than half of his salary, and had left; what was his salary? As the question is punctuated, I answer he sjs-nt and hi - salary was $12.30. Proof —Salary $12.30. In 1877 A spent 15, or half of his salary. In H7B he spent $0.07, or two-'iftcenths more than be spent in H77, or two fifteenths more than $<5.15, or two fifteenths more than half of hi.s salary. And s'">-)7 is 20 pt>r oont, of per cent, (or two-fifteenths) more than $0.15, or more than half of sl2 .'JO. The solution of "Xenus" in ikes him spend s!f.2o 7-1 1, and makes .-alary $14.53 7-11. But $:».20 7-11 is not two-fifteenths more than $7.2<; tt-11, but is two-fifteenths more than 12 and a fraction ; SO the proof fails. In Brooks' Arithmetic 1 find exam ple on page 197 : 712 acres is « per cent, more than half of how many acres? Answer given, 1,100 acres. As 6 per cent, is 20 per cent, of thirty per cent., we may liken it to the salary question by giving it thus: A sjiends 20 per cent, of 30 per cent, more than half of his salary, arid haa s*isS left; wh«t is his salary? Answer, $1,400. Another example, same page: 231 is 20 per cent, of 25 per cent, more than what number? Answer given, 220. It. follows that 231 is 20 per cent, of 25 j>er cent, more than half of 440, just as s';.!»7 is 20 per cent, of p«f cent, more than half of $12.30. Example, Golf's Arithmetic, page 304 : A raised 800 bushels of wheat, which was 25 per cent, more than halt of what B raised; what did Braise? Answer given, 1,280 bushels. Change this to salary: A spent SBOO, which was 25 p< r cent, more than half of his salary ; what was his salary ? Answer, $1,280. Or, A -pent ;'•> percent more than half of his salary, and had left; what was his salary? Answer, $1,280. Or, SBOO is 25 per cent, more than S«4O, which is half of $1,280 "Xenus" does not seem to recollect that you can take th«- percentage of a ! fraction, although the que-tion he was j trying to solve brought it clearly be- : fore him. One of the meanings of percentage is: "The name ftpplif) to j any number of hundredths of nnylhtnij , that is regarded a- a basis of computa tion."—Golfs Arithmetic. Whether you say one-fourth or twen ty-five per cent., the quantity is the same. B. Tho Field Question. jlfi'KHrK. Editor* —The answer to the field question in CITIZEN <<f last week is as follows: The field is 7,680 rods square, and contains 3f',x,040 acres. Butler, Sept. 8, '7!). E. F. W. Another Problem, An officer, wishing to divide his men so that an equal number of men would lie in each division, found that by di viding into two divisions there was an odd man; into three divisions there were two odd men; into four then; were three odd men; into five there were four; into six there were five; into seven there were six; into eight there were seven ; into nine there were eight; into ten there were nine odd men, but when divided into eleven di visions they were jeven. How many men had he? Kx. Mo. FIIANK DIXOK, brother of the victim of the VazooCity tragedy, says his brother's death was undoubtedly hastened to prevent the disclosure of the political .secrets he was possessed of. He says his brother was killed by order of the Democratic committee. THE Democrats and Grcenbackcrs 1 of Mercer enmity united on a county ticket—the Grcenbackcrs getting the lion's share. : 1 g*(j* ©utter Citizen: PxtiJUr, fist., 10, lOTO, Free odings of Republican County Convention.

The Convention then proceeded to the election of a Chairman of the County Committee for the ensuing year, which resulted in the election of Thomas Robinaoii. A. L. Craig and W. C. Negley were chosen Secretaries of li;'- Committee. j On motion, the Chairma.i of the Committee was authorize I, after con sultation or correspondence with Re publicans of those districts not repre sent 1 in the Convention, to appoint members on tuo Committer for tl|e same. On motion adjourned. A. L. CAMPBELL, M. N. G ukKit, Chairman. Secretary. (Cleveland Herald.] The E-,s:iasii|atiori of Captain Henry M. Dixon, at Yazoo City, Missibaipjii, will cause no surprise. It. is in str;<-t accordance with the Mississippi plan, and was the logical consequences of Mr. Dixon's je rsisting in tin; exercise of his legal political rights in opposi tion to the wishes of the Confedro- j Democracy. The full details of the "Yazoo affair" are fresh in the public ' mind. Captain Henry M Dixon, an ex-C'onfeilerate soldier, a life-lon'.' Democrat, and a native born South- j enter, a short time ago allowed his name to fie placed on the Independent j ticket as a candidate for Sheriff 'if Yazoo county. A mass meeting of "prominent citizens" was consequently held arid a committee sent to Mr. ' Dixon to tell him to either renounce! his candidacy or be killed. He chose the former course. Afterward, how-, j ever, the storm of indignation con- j I ecrning this outrage being so great, j ' he thonght he might venture to once j I more assert his rights, and he did so, I ! announcing that his renunciation hav- j i ing befsn extorted by force, he held it j null and void, mid was till an Inde- j pendent candidate for Sheriff of Yazoo ! county. He p.istook th<- temper of the Confedro-Democracy, and the mis take cost him his life. He was assas- j sinated in the streets of Yazoo City , on the 20th. His assassin was James : Barkesdale, a relative, in all proba- ! bility, of Hon, Kthel Barkesdale, the , chairman of the Mississippi State i Confcdro-Democratie Committee, and, | next to Jefferson Davis, the most prolv liable candidate for United Stabs Senator from that State. This is all that was wanting to make this barbarous outrage complete, and it may servo as a warning to any other person who mav rely upon the hypocritical expressions of regret which some of the Mississippi pap'-rs J have indulged in to the extent of ven- . turing to oppose the Confedro-Deinoe- | ra'-y. This party captured Mississippi; with shotguns and revolvers, and with shotguns and revolvers it holds it, and will continue to hold it. And as shotguns and revolvers keep Mis sissippi solid for the Confederate party, so do shotguns and revolvers keep the South solid for that party. Mississippi has no government, save that of armed mobs and tinned assas sins. BUI.AI.IE'S swjetpocm, entitled "The Cucumber's Victim," says the St. Bonis Timrx-.Journal, has been re ceived, and is res|iectfiilly but firmly declined, on the grounds that we can not encourage a muse which "rcallv gorgeous" rhyme with "cholera morbus." 1 The New York Republicans' Plat form and Ticliet. 1 The New York State lb-publican Convention met on the 3rd inst., \ ice President William A. Wheeler was l«.rmanent President. Being conducted ; tl. chair. Mr. Wheeler made a short I j speech, in which he said the policy of! I seeking to starve the Government into i submi.-sion to rebellion was initiated! at Fort Sumter, and was again at i tempted by the Democracy at the late j ; session of Congress. The speech was a general arraignment of the Demo-1 eratie policy and record during an i ; since the late war, eulogy of the Re- , publican party, and an appeal for con- ! tinning the latter in power in order to , to maintain and enforce the results j achieved bv the sword and to secure j protection to every citizen in every j right. regardWs of his color, coadi- j tion or locality. Charles E. Smith, Chairman <*S the j Committee on Resolutions, presented the following platform which was j unanimously adopted : The Republicans of New York. ; pledging themselves anew to national | supremacy, equal rights, free elections j and honest iH'ciey, declare these prin- - ciples: First. The Republic of the United States is a nation and not a league. The nation is supreme within its own constitutional sphere. It is girded with power to guard its own life, to protect its own citizens, to regulate its own elections and to execute its own laws. The opposite doctrine of State . .vcreignty is thebancfu! motherof not ification, sesession and anarchy. The Republican party stands for national supremacy in national affairs and State rights in State concerns; the Democ racy stand for State sovereignty with j its own twin heresy, that the union is a mere confederacy of States. Second. To refuse necessary sup plies for the Government with the de sign of compelling the unwilling con sent of a co-ordinate and independent branch to odious measures is revolu tion. To refuse'appropriations for the execution of existing and binding laws is nulification. We arraign the Democratic Representatives In Con j gress m guilty both of revolutionary attempts and of nulifying schemes and we reprobate their action as calculated to subvert the Constitution and to strike at. the existence of the Govern ment itself. Third. The safety of the Republic deinan Is free and pure elections. The Democratic Congress has attempted dictation by caucus, by threats of starv ing the Government and by months of disturbing agitation to break down the national election laws. We denounce this effort as a conspiracy to overthrow the safeguards of free suffrage, and to open the ballot box to the unchecked einination of rifle clubs of the South and rpneaters of New York. We de clare our uncompromising opposition to any repeal of these just protective laws, and Republican Senators and Representatives in Congress for their resistance to this attempt and Presi dent Hayes for his veto messages de serve and receive our hearty approval. Fonrtb- The Republican party neither justifies net tijlen'tcs; military interference with election#. It. seeks onlv to protect the ballot box from the interference of force or fraud. It re pels the false charges and de nounces the false pretenses of the con spirators who while professing to favor free elections everywhere, sustain mob law in the South, while inveighing against troops at the polls to protect eiti'/ens, refu.-e to nrobibit armed dobs from surrounding Ihe ballot box to In ! timidate them, and while affecting that j soldiers' bayonets will overawe free ! elections, remain silent when the as sassin's bullet seals the fate of politi cal independence. Fifth. We call upon the people to remember that the Democratic party forced the extra session of Congress without warrant or excuse ; that it prosecuted its partisan purposes by revolutionary methods; that it persist ently obstructed resumption, and still constantly presses disturbing measures; that it reopened sectional questions closed by the national triumph, and threatens the repeal of war legislation j that its Southern element answers con ciliation only with violence; that its hope of success rests alone on the solid South, and that its triumph would make the solid South the ruling force jof the nation. We recognize that the great body of the people who defended ! the Union, of whatever party name, are equally patriotic and equally inter ' ested iii fcood government, and wo ! earnestly invoke them to unite in re ' sisting the dangerous designs of the ! party organization under the sway of ' those who were lately in rebellion and j seek to regain in the halls of legisla ! tion what they lost, on the field of bat -1 tie. Sixth. The successful resumption j of tipuulo payments, despite Demo. ' eratie prediction and hostility, is the crowning element of the Republican j financial policy. Followed by return i ing national prosperity, improved cred ! it, refunded debt and reduced intere- l, lit adds another to to the triumphs 1 which prove that the Republican party Ii- equal to the highe-t demands. Our j whole currency should by kept at par with the monetary standard of the ; commercial world, and any attempt to i debase the standard, to depreciate , paper, or deteriorate coin, should be ; iirmfy resisted. Seventh. The claims of living and | memories of the dead defenders of the ! nation conjure us to protest against the ! partisan and unpatriotic greed which ; expels old Union soldiers from their well deserved rewards and advances Confederate soldiers to tle-ir places. Eighth. A« the pledge and proof of its economy in State administration, the Republican party, in spite of pro longed Democratic resistance, proposed and passed constitutional amendments i which restrict tho expenses of canals ! to their receipts and reform the wholo system of canal and prison miiuugo- I ment and by extinguishing public in debtedness anil relieving the people from any further tax thereon, it ef fected a great saving in State taxation. These fruits of B publican measures, Democrats have brazenly attempted to appropriate as their own. Appealing to the records in support of our decla ration we pronounce their claims un founded, and hold up their authors as public impostors. The rest of the resolutions relate exclusively to State affairs. THE TICKET. A ballot for Governor was then taken, which resulted in the uomina- : tion of A. It Cornell, of New York The ticket was completed as fol- I lows: For Lieutenant Governor, | George G llo,kins; for Scerelary ol't ; Stat--. Joseph B. Carr: for Controller I James W. Wads worth ; f>r Treasurer. . Nathan I>. Wendell; for Attorney, General, Hamilton Ward ; for State lin. r in-er and Surveyor, How rd l Soule. A Sad Suiciuo. [Pitt-bnr«h Commercial-Oaiette, Gth ' Yesterday afternoon the city was j startled by a rumor that Dr. ijainey I A. Scott, the well-known dentist, had j • committed a suicide. As the report ; i rapidly circulated in a short time a large crowd of people collected in i front of his residence at No. 278 Penn j , avenue to learn the facts. A reporter j immediately- visited the house, and \ j learned that in the morning Dr. Seott | ' had told his wife that he did not feel I | very weii, and would not get up till i : noon. He asked Mrs. Scott to go to J I his oflkes on Fifth avenue and see that j I everything was attended to. This she j j eid, and a few moments later Scott requested the servant to keep the chil- J I dren quiet, as he wanted to sleep, and : then locked the door of the room, j j Some time later in the morning, one ) of the ladies w ho boarded at the house, | (passed the door and heard Dr. Scott I breathing very heavily, but did not think that there was anything wrong. Shortly after noon Mrs. Scott returned home to dinner, when she went up sLairs to the room where the doctor' was sleeping and knocked repeatedly, bui received no answer. She then burst open the door, and, to her infinite horror, found her husband lying on the bed with distorted features and blackened nails, moaning heavily. Dr. T. W. Shaw was instantly sent for, and he did everything possible to neu tralize the effects of the poison which he had taken. A few moments later lbs. Dickson, McCann and Foster ar rived, and an electric battery was se cured. For two hours the current was applied without avail. Hypodermic injections of atropia and ammonia were administered and cold douches applied, but to no purpose. Every known rein ed}' was brought into requisition. A stomach pump was resorted to, but In asinuch as Dr. Scott had not partaken of any food it soon became evident that the poison had been absorbed. Pinned to a pincushion on the table a note was found, evidently written on the paper which contained the poison, in the doctor's handwriting' It read as below: (i «nl hve, my darling Jennie; I will not be a Imrden t > vmi any 1 mtfor; 1 am gain; where my wretched tir»ui will be at rest. QI'IKCY. Despite the unremitting efforts of , the attending physicians, the doctor continued to sink slowly, his system having become thoroughly narcotized, and last evening at o'clock lie passed away. Mrs. Scott was almost dis tracted yesterday afternoon by the sad affair. She savs that for two months past the doctor has been in ill health from a derangement of tl;e stomach, and has lieen rather dyspeptic and melancholic. He has been tinder the treatment of Dr. Pepper, of Philadel phia, she states. On Thursday even ing he visited his mother-in-law and laughed and chatted in the best of sjiirits, and intended to go to the Ex position with his wife lost nieijt. Dr, Shaw was visited, and stated that his death had undoubtedly resulted from narcotic poisoning, and that tho physicians had it that it was morphia that he had taken. He added that it was hardly possible that an inquest would be held, as the physicians had deemed it unnecessary. Dr Scott was in his thirty-eighth year, and has been unusually successful in l)'S prtiCtW. It i> said, however, t' at latterly he has not done so well. 1 here is also a report that he was much depressed in consequence of two deaths resulting from the inhalation, it i.- alleged, of his laughing gas. An inquiry among his friends shows that there is not one who can assign a satisfactory reason for the commission of ihc rash act. His mother-in-law, Mrs. John Watt, also could not give any reason other than that it may have resulted from depression of spirits on account of ill health. He recently fitted up an el egant suite of offices on Fifth avenue, and until quite recently hail appeared very sanguine as regards his business prospect*. He was universally known and liked in this community, and leaves a wife, three children and many friends to mourn his untimely end. Dr. Scott, it is understood, was dis charged from bankruptcy on Thursday la-t. Tin: young lady who aspires to be admitted to the ranks of the legal pro. fession does not reflect I fiat the gratifi cation of her ambition would only make her a bar-maid. It Seems Impossible That n remedy made of such common, simple plants as Hops, Buchu, Man drake, Dandelion, \c., should make so many nnd such marvelous and won. derful cures as Hop Bitters do, but when old and young, rich and poor, Pastor and Doctor, Lawyer and Edi tor, all testify to having been cured by them, you must believe and try them yourself, nnd doubt no longer.
