JOHN H. *■ W. C. NE6LEY. PROP'RS. ICepublican State Ticket. 1 OR STATE TREASURER, Hon. Samuel Hut lei*, OF CHESTER COUNTY. County Ticket. FOR JURY COMMISSIONER, JT. Wesley Monks, OF MIDDLESEX. THE Allegheny river is said to be three inches lower than it was in 1854, the year of the great dry spell. SOME sales in real estate near this place were made last week. Part of the Milton Maxwell farm, in Centre township, (150 acres, with the build ings), was sold for $9,750. THE vote in Connecticut on Monday week last, on the proposed Constitu tional amendments, making the Judges hold office during good behavior and pro viding for biennial sessions of the Leg islature hereafter, resulted in the de feat of both by a large majority. THE Ohio election came off yester day, and we are sorry we cannot with hold our paper to give some news. But we have to go to press this (Tues day) evening and of course have no news. Both parties are claiming the victory, but we have but little doubt of a Republican triumph. EX-SHEBIFF MCCANDLESS, and his three sons, who were so seriously in jured by the falling of the Plankroad bridge here some weeks ago, are all getting along well, and are considered out of danger. The three boys are about on crutches, and the broken limbs of the ex-Sheriff are fast healing. THE English Lutheran Church of this place was unexpectedly crowded to its utmost capacity on Sunday even ing last, no services then being bad at any of the other churches of the place. From the close attention given the sermon of Rev. Waters, we judged the large audience were much inter ested and pleased with the same. JOHN QCINCY ADAMS, Jr., grandson of ex-President John Quincy Adams, of illustrious name and fame, has been nominated by the regular Democrats of Massachusetts as their candidate for Governor. This is the sixth time he has been so named by that party for that office, and his chances for sue- 1 cess now are more hopeless than ever before. Truly "politics make strange bedfellows," when a descendant of the Adamses becomes a Democratic candi date. CAPT. JAS. T. SAMPLE, of Sewickley, Allegheny county, we are informed, is soou to canvass this county for sub scribers to the New York Tribune, and we take this occasion to recom mend him to the people of Butler county as an honest, worthy and per fectly reliable agent and man in all be may say or do. Mr. Sample is crip pled, having lost a leg in the Mexican war. The New York Tribune is now the leading Republican journal of the country, and in view of the approach ing contest of 1880, for President, all its readers will find it a very able and interesting paper. As an illustration of the remarkable memory and clearness of mind of Mr. David Dougal, now over a hundred years of age, a gentleman of this place who visited him lately tells us that on being enquired of relative to the loca tion of a certain saw mill sixty years ago and the title to and lines of the property on which it then stood, being a piece of land in Brady township, near what is, known as the Stone House place, Mr. Dougal gave an ac curate description of tho said location, with a history of the title of the place on which it stood, and the different owners, then and since, and all about it, which was important information to the present owner. JOHN G. WHITTIEB, the Quaker poet and veteran abolitionist, recently wrote a very interesting letter to the Worces ter Convention, held in honor of the 25th anniversary of the organization of the Republican party in Massachu setts. After referring to the rise and progress of - the anti-slavery senti ment in political circles he says: "The Republican party has done a noble work, but it has still its mission and its duties. It is as necessary now as it has ever been. It must be main tained until the ballot-box everywhere is safe from violence or intimidation, and the civil rights of every class of American citizens are made secure be yond the possibility of suppression or infringement." This is true doctrine. Tho Pittsburgh Blot Losses. The Supreme v°ourt, now sitting at Pittsburgh, rendered a decision last week, to tho effect that the county of Allegheny is liable for the losses sus tained by the great riot at Pittsburgh in July, 1877. The decision is made under the old Act of Assembly, of 1841, which, to our mind and the minds of many others, never contem plated a riot of the extent and nature of that happening in Pittsburgh in July, 1877 ; but contemplated merely riots of a local nature, and meant to provide that the local community should be responsible for losses by the same. We all recollect that that riot extended along railroads nearly from one end of the Union to the other, and happened to concentrate and burst forth at Pittsburgh. The absurdity and injustice of the decision making Allegheny county wholly liable for those losses, will appear in the fact that they might have been of such ex tent that no one county or city could possibly pay for the same. Suppose the whole or the half of Pittsburgh had l>een destroyed #v that fire and riot, how could the balance of the peo ple of Allegheny county ever been able to pay the losses ? Or suppose said railroad riot had happened to have first broken out in Philadelphia, the home of Judge Paxson, who delivered this cruel opinion, and Philadelphia had been half destroyed and half her people ruined, what kind of an inter pretation of that old law would it be to say that the other half of the people should bear all the loss ? And all this, and much more that might be adduced, goes to illustrate that only small and local riots were contemplated by the law of 1841. The riot of July, 1877, was anvthing but of that character. Allegheny county will yet certainly be relieved from the possibility of paying so great a loss through this late deci sion of the Supreme Court. Tho Oil Market. During the past ten days the oil market has been unsteady, ranging from 78 to 90 cents per barrel, and closing last week at about 90. The general outlook, however, favors an advance in price. This week it has reached 93 cents. About Some Birds. What is known as the English spar row is now among us, an institution of this town, and evidently come to stay. Sitting at our office window the other day we noticed them gather ing material upon the street for nest making, with which they flew up to a corner of the Brady Law Building, into a narrow space between the brackets and a water pipe, and there placed it, evidently building a nest. Being at this time of the year our cu riosity was attracted to know why this nest is being built so late in the season, and when almost all other birds are gone away with the young ones they raised here during the sum mer. The nest, we imagined, was probably for winter use as a house, and so it may be. But it seems they are a bird of not only rare impudence in manner and great voracity in eating, but are as well of great fecundity, so that the nest may possibly be for hatching more young sparrows. The vigor of these birds is remarkable. It was quite amusing to see them seize weeds and other things on the ground, and the pulls and jerks they would give to extract them. These would be so vigorous sometimes that the bird would throw itself upon its back. Their chattering, too, is continual, but not at all musical or pleasant, Fre quently they will go upon the trees and make such a noise that you would suppose some great calamity had hap pened them. It is hard to tell, on these occasions, whether it is fun and frolic among them, or a, fight. They apparently attack one another with great fierceness, but may be "only in fun." Compared with our modest little American sparrow there is a great contrast. It is said they are a foe to our nice little sparrows that only come in the spring to stay through the summer and then go away again. In fact it is said that nearly all birds are afraid of them. But certain it is we have them among us, an annoyance and a nuisance, and don't sing at all— nothing but the same chatter all the time. In England they are called house birds, because of their famili arity with and disposition to stay about towns and houses. If this is their nature they will never spread through the woods. They were intro duced into Philadelphia some years ago, it is said, for the purpose of de stroying the insects and worms that pester the trees in the public parks, etc., and from there they are spreading out through the country. They can stand cold weather, and do not pro pose to go South like the robin and our little sparrow or "chippee," and so we will have to put up with them with all their bad manners and un musical voices. National Bank—Oorreotion by Mr. W. S. Boyd of Letter of Charles McCandloss, Esq. , • BUTLER, Oct. 10, 1879. Messrs. Editors —My attention has been called to a letter of Charles Mc- Candless published in the Pittsburgh Dispatch, dated Oct. 6, 1879, where my name is used. True there was a drive made on me in February, 1878, and I did maka a temporary assign ment, and wa« on paper in the First National Bank, being nearly all endorse ments, to about $14,000, and during the year reduced it to about $8,000; and kept still on reducing it, and a short time before the bank failed I lifted every dollar of paper I was on and gave one, with good security, of $2,500; and that was transferred or assigned to the Fifth National Bank of Pittsburgh. So that took up all the paper I was on in any way in the First National Bank of Butler. I had been doing a large business in the bank, as iny bank book shows. Now in justice to myself I make the above statement. In June, 1879, my As signee reassigned my property back to me, all but a few pieces that had been sold. Respectfully yours, WILLIAM S. BOYD. There are but few persons in this community, if any, who will not say Mr. Lloyd, the writer of the above, is simply doing justice to himself in making the above publication, It is very natural for him, and any of the others named in the letter of Mr. Mc- Candless to the Pittsburgh Dispatch, to feel aggrieved at the thus dragging of their names "before the public, oven if the statements made were true. But JittfcUc Cifc*»eu ' Wntl*K*P*., (OktabwE ta, tg?9. when they are not true, in the seusc conveyed bv Mr. McCandless, then we can readily understand his indignation and that of others, at this attempt to make their alleged failures the cause of the failure of the First National Bank. Mr. Boyd, as he states, does not owe the National Bank here a cent, and did not owe it a cent for some time before it closed, having settled with it and lifted all the paper he was on before it failed, giving his note for a balance, with good security, which note was immediately sold to a bank in Pittsburgh and the money realized upon it by and for the use of the Na tional Bank here. So the closing of his dealings with it, as the matter stands, was for the benefit of the bank here, and if he has anything yet to pay on his small note given it will be paid to the Pittsburgh bank, its present owner. The National Bank here lost nothing by him. nor did Mr. McCandless, nor can they. Why then was his name used at all ? And why were the names of others omitted by Mr. McCandless who do owe the Bank and whose paper yet lays unpaid in it, with a strong probability of never being paid. The names of some jyven owe, it is affirmed by them, small amounts, while the names of some omitted owe largely, in one case to the amount of about $5,000, and which case may account for the whitewashing contained in an editorial of a paper of this place last week, in which the losses are spoken of in a light way and the sufferers as being of the "more fortunate class who can bear their loss." The real causes of the failure of this National Bank are well understood here. It was used for individual pur poses and ends. There were too much oil speculation in it, and too much politics, which has resulted in injurv to individuals as well as to the Republican party of this county. But it is not our purpose, nor have we any desire, to now allude to these things. We stated last week, that although the public seemed to be entitled to all news in reference to it, yet wo would confine ourselves to official acts or facts as they transpired in its winding up. We little expected then to see the pub lications made here and in Pittsburgh. The great trouble, and which is much to be regretted, is that innocent par ties, among them some of the Direc tors of the Bank, have already suffered and may yet suffer more. If so the}' will have the sympathy of this entire community. Since writing the above Mr. Mc- Candless has corrected his statement in regard to Mr. Boyd, and desires it to be so stated, which we do with pleasure. Tho Missing Balloon. ST. LOUIS, Oct. s.—Nothing has been heard of the missing balloouists. It is now generally believed that Prof. Wise and George Burr are dead, or if they are still alive that they are lost in the woods of Macoupin county, Illi nois. A reward has been offered for the recovery of the bodies by young Burr's father. This, it is hoped, will stimulate search. It has been said by some that the whole thing is merely an advertising scheme, and that the aeronauts will turn up at the proper time safe and well. Burr is cashier of the First National Bank. His father is president. His friends are very and say that the young man would under no circumstances lend himself to such a scheme. Then again the lady to whom Burr was engaged to be married, who was to be apprised of his safety at the nearest telegraph station, has heard nothing from him. The air-ship started from the fair grounds here at p. m. on Sunday last, in a storm of wind, the velocity of which was more than sixty miles an hour, and in twenty minutes was seen scudding along the clouds at Al ton, twenty-five mile* distant. It was seen later at Bunker Hill, and was last seen, as far as is positively known, at Carlinville, Illinois, fifty miles northeast of St. Louis. Had the balloon made a safe landing, it seems highly probable, to say the least that Prof. Wise and Burr would long before this have found their way out of the wilderness, especially as the Professor had a compass with him. It seems that Prof. Wise had serious misgivings about the voyage before the start Several people wished to go, but the balloon would not lift them. To Mr. Burr, who offered to go alone, he said; "If only one man can go, I will be that man ; if two can go, you will be the other; but I would rather leave you behind. lam old enough now to die; you are young enough to live many years." Mr. J. F. Downew, Prof. Wise's nephew, has received from the agent of the Wabash ] Railroad at Uliopolis, Illinois, this dispatch : "Found on Monday morn ing, two miles west of here, a paper dropped from Wise's balloon." This would indicate that the air-ship had been carried to the northward. In all probability the balloon has been dashed to pieces and both men lost. There is yet a faint hope among the friends of the aeronauts that the adven turers may be alive. The Pathfinder was a new balloon, built of stuff made expressly for it and another balloon, It was one of tho best ho ever mado, and was not oiled until three weeks a"o. It had never been used and was exceedingly strong. If it had been rotten, it would never have survived the hard usage it received on Sunday, and would not, with the immense strain on it several times, have got out of the park. The netting of the balloon was not as heavy as it should have been for stormy weather, and yet heavy enough for all practical pur poses. The cause of the snapping during the filling process is easily ex plained. The bag was allowed to fill too rapidly without commensurate at tention being paid to the relieving pro cess, so that too much strain fell on one or two cords ; added to this came a heavy puff of wind just as the men were letting the balloon up, doubling the strain on these few cords. "Mr. Burr made the ascent simply for the iovc of adventure. The young lady to whom he was engaged was prom ised tidings of the first anchorage of the balloon by Mr. Burr himself. The romantic announcement has never been received, and this young lady, strong as is her faith in the missing friend, has terrible misgivings that the two have met with a horrible fate. The last words she heard from the lips of Mr. Burr were: "I'll telegraph you." He then hurried to his place, started on his journey, anrl with his hat in hand waved what may proba bly prove his last good-bye. Thirteen Governors Expected. In accordance with the arrange ments for meeting of the Governors of the thirteen original States, to l>e held in Independence Hall, on Monday, the 20th inst., for the purpose of starting preparations for the purposed celebra tion of the one hundredth anniversary of the surrender of Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown, it is announced that the Governors of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia are to leave Richmond on Friday morning, the 17th inst., on the way to this city, and will probably be joined at Balti more by the Governor of Maryland. Upon arriving here it is arranged that thev shall be met at the American Hotel (opposite Independence Hall) by the Governors of New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Con necticut. It is proposed to have the Gover nors visit the Permanent Exhibition on Saturday afternoon, the 18th inst,, and that on the following day, the an niversary of the surrender of Corn wallis, they shall attend divine ser vice in old Christ Church, Second street, above Arch, where Washington worshipped. After the meeting to be held on the next day, Monday, when it is expected the nine Governors men tioned will be joined by the Chief Magistrates of New York, Pennsyl vania, New Jersey and Delaware, it is said that they all will probably visit Yorktown for the purpose of looking at the site upon which it is proposed to hold a grand national military en campment in commemoration of the surrender.— Philadelphia Times. Warfare on Lotteries. WASHINGTON, Oct. 10.—The ruling made by the Postoffice Department last Saturday, that all letters addressed to lottery companies, or to persons as agents of such companies, must be treated as unmailable, has not been rescinded, nor has the enforcement of the accompanying order been sus pended, as seems to be supposed in some quarters. On the contrary, it is being rigidly enforced. The post master of Louisville has been informed by the Postmaster General that he should refuse to deliver any such let ters, and should send them all to the Dead Letter Office. The misunder standing in regard to the matter ap pears to have arisen form the fact that no authority has yet been given to postmasters to detain letters mailed to persons known to be lottery agents, but not addressed as such. The de partment is, however, pursuing an in vestigation as to the extent of the business done and the methods by which the statutes and the recent order are evaded by the lottery companies, with a view to determining whether a postmaster at an office of delivery, who has judical notice of the business en gaged in by a company and its agents, can hold letters which arrive in large numbers addressed to an individual whose connection with the lottery company is not openly stated. Our Question Box. PROSPECT, Oct. 10, 1879. • Messrs. Editors —Believing by all appearances that the interest manifested in the "Question Box" is on the decline, and taking an interest in its welfare, which every person ought to take, I contribute a few words in order to see it continue, because all persons inter ested can instill something into their ever-increasing minds that will be ben eficial to them sometimes. My answers to the derrick question are as follows: The length of the longest straight line that can be drawn is 77.04 feet, and the difference be tween the perpendicular and slant height is 4.488 inches. QUESTIONS. What weight of pressure is pro duced by a beam resting on a fulcrum 5 feet from a stationary end, providing the beam is 22 inches square and 35 feet long, and having a weight of 1,400 pounds attached to the ends ? In turning a chaise within a circle of a certain diameter, it was discovered that the outer wheel turned thrice to the inner's twice ; supposing the axle tree 4 feet long, and the wheels of an equal size, the length of the circum ference described by each wheel is re quired.

If it is taken in time it is as easily cured as a wart or a corn.
