At the General Council of the English Lutheran Chureh, held at Greenville, P*-, recently, the follow ing facts as to the growth of that Church were made known. The General Council of Lutherans number 993 ministers, 1,835 congre gations, and 258,408 communicant membeis. Tue whole Lutheran Chnrch in America numbers with its adherents, about 5,000.000 souls, their edncational and charitable insti tution? are as follows: Twenty-six Colleges, with 180 pro fessors, and 2,660 students. 36 acad emies, baring 130 professors, and 2, 430 students. 25 Theological semi naries, with 61 professors and 671 stndenta. 13 ladies' seminaries, with 97 professors and 1,004 students.

BRANDON, Esq , who recent ly returned home here from bis trip to Europe, states some thing* he ob served that (co to show that the old country is still behind the new one. For instance, in some parts visited he saw more women at work in the fields than men. The women not only help to gather the crops but to put them In. In small fields or lots of ground they are to be seen digging with some kind of a hoe, preparing the ground for the new crops. But little plowing is done, as herp. As re gards the crops taken off women gener ally market them in small carts, pushed by themselves with the aid of dogs attached. The marketing to the towns or cities is done in this way. Large numbers of these little carts are to be seen at market place s, the railroads being seldom used to con vey marketing as is done in this country. At the same time farms or fields are more highly improved than in this country, everything about them look ing clean and neat, and not a tillable foot of earth but what is worked No fences as a general thing exist One farmer or tiller will cut or work up to bis line and there stop. What looked a little strange to an Ameri can was to see a soldier pacing up and down in the farming or rural districts, apparently to guard tbem. This was the case especially near the borders of certain provinces. Through the coun try everything has an old or Qnibhed look and in this consists the great con trast between the old and this country, where everything looks new or as just begun. As to storms upon the ocean, of which bis vessel experienced some heavy ones on the returning trip, they are peculiar in that they come up suddenly. You have no signs of warning of their coming, as upon the land. Yon bear thunder and but seldom see lightning. The daily papers in Europe must geoerally be obtained at news stands upon the streets and are not carried about and sold by boys as here. Their papers are so filled with their own matters transpiring that they seem to give but litttle attention to anything transpiring in the United States, many of tbem apparently not jet knowing that there is such a place as the United States. These and many other interesting matters that Mr. Brandon states might be of interect to our readers did time and •paet permit giving tbem. About the Fair. Another Butler Fair has come and gone and all agree it was the largest and best yet had. More people were supposed to be in Butler on Thurs day, the third day of the Fair, last week, than on any former day in our history. To see the people coming and returning in their buggies, wag ons and other conveyances it was a wonder where they all camo from. While the success of the Fair was thus great this success itself brought to light some improvements much needed for the future. The first and most importaut of these brought out distinctly is the need ot more road ways for reaching the grounds. The only road now for vehicles to the grounds, from where the same con nects with or leaves the main, or New Castle road, is a narrow one and in some places is unsafe when crowded, especially to persons on foot. We are told that on several occasions last week persons walking to the Fair came near being run over. There is no side or foot walk, and fast drivers rush along and often so close to the fences as to endanger life. This road should not only be improv ed but enlarged if possible. Besides this, other roads to the ground might be opened which would facilitate the means of reaching it. A isitors from the whole southern end of the coun ty would be saved near a mile in travel if a short cut way was opened acrossthe valley of tbecreek from town. As it is they have to take a round of almost a circuit, to some of them. Another road needed would be one on the west of the ground so that persons from that part of the county could enter without traveling so far around as they now have to do. This could be accomplished by en larging the grounds which we are pleased to learn the managers of the Fair have in contemplation of doing. They should own the ground out to what is known as the Pearce road. It would put the ground in better shape and the Fair last week showed an enlargement is already demand ed. Some are also of the opinion that there should be more conveniences erected in the way of seats and shel ters. Many women with children aod aged persons were much fatigued last week io not finding a seat to set and rest upon. Then in case of a sudden storm or heavy rain coming up the want of sheltering places might be severely felt. Such an event on Thursday of the Fair might have created a panic among so large a crowd as might have resulted in personal injury to many. With the enlargement of the grounds these sheltering places and seats could be provided. More water and water closets it is said should alto be pro vided. These suggestions are made in the interest of the Fair, The one just had proves the growing interest tak en in it and the probable increase of numbers at it in the future. We presume a list of the premi ums granted will be published. Ibis should be done, that all exhibitors as well as the public may know the suc cessful ones. There were so many exhibitors and ao great a variety of articles on the ground that it would be impossible for us, or for any pa per, to give all of them by name. V\ e think it would pay the management to have them published. Visitors at the Re-union. N. P. Reed, Esq, of the Pittsburg Commercial Gazette came over to see the Re-union ceremonies. His many friends here were glad to see him. Addison J. Brinker, Esq of Alle gheny City, a former "Butler boy," was here to see the Re-nnion. He is now one ot the honored Aldermen of Allegheny City, which is another confirmation of the old saying '"that Butler is a good place to be born in, but to remove from a3 earlv in life as possible." Rcy. Dr. Loyal Young came from Little Washington to participate in the Re union exercises and mingle with his old friends of this place. He is always welcome here. His fervent blessing at the opening of the banquet was very appropriate and heard distinctly by all in the vast banquet hall. Capt. Charles B. Gillespie, of Freo port, was another of ''Butler's old boys" who all were glad to see and greet here on Wednesday. lie was always a patriot and is now a suc cessful physician at Freeport. Hon. George W. McCracken, edi tor of the New Castle Guardian, was among the neighbors of near counties present at the Re-union and was a welcome visitor. James Campbell, Esq. of Green ville, Pa. was another old Butler boy present. Many more old friends were here whose names we do not now recall. Mr. Robert McNair, youngest son of Ae late General Robert McNair of this county, came all the way from Olympia, Washington Territory, his present home, to attend the Reuuion of the llth Reserves. Mr. McNair was a member of D. and was born here in Butler about 45 years ago.

PHILADELPHIA, PA., Sept. 18. — The closing exercises attendant upon the celebration of the centennial anni versary of the American Constitution began yesterday with a public recep tion to tbr President in the Commis sioners' office at City Hall, followed by the memorial meeting in Indepen dence Hall. On the staud beside the Chief Magistrate of the Nation were the Justices of the highest courts, the foreign ministers, aud represent atives of the army and navy aud eyeiy department of civic, military and religious life. Two thousand children of the public schools sang the opening chorus. Prayer was offered by Bishop Potter, of the Epis copal Church, also by Cardinal Gib bons, of Baltimore. Patriotic songs were rendered, and the new National hymn was recited. The introduc tory address was delivered by Hon John A. Kasson, President of the Constitution Centennial Commission. At its conclusion, after the rendering of Schiller and Mendelsohn's "Ap peal to the Truth," by a male chorus of 200 voices, Mr. Kasson introduced President Cleveland, who made an address. He was followed by Sam'l F. Miller, senior Justice of the Su preme Court of the United States, who delivered an oration, occupying over an hour. Mrs. Cleveland sat in front ot the learned and eccentric Justice, but made little attempt to follow him. She wore a steel-gray bonnet, trim med with peach blossoms. Her dress was steel-gray and white plaid, trim med with gray velvet and relieved by a vest of peach color. When she appeared on the.front of the grand stand her beauty captured the mul titude. And as she and her husband, the President, standing hand in hand, smiled down upon them the multi tude awoke the echoes with uproar ious applause, which did not die away for several minutes after the distinguished pair bad been seated. While this welcome must have been very gratifying to the ' first lady of the land," still that given to her on her way to Independence Square was much more so. The President held a public recep tion in the new City Ilall in the morning and sLock hands with 5.763 people in an hour and a half. One of the shakers told him he hop id there would be a son born in the White House before the year was out. The greetings of the people and the responses of the President were of the most informal character and char acteristic of the American people's republicanism. One good-looking woman, with bright red hair, not satisfied with the ordinary greeting, made a quick movement, and before anyone realized it, had kissed the President unawares, as he was look ing out the window. Of course there was a laugh in which every body joined. At the conclusion of the memorial services, about 1 P. M , the Marine I'and rendered a march, daring which the President and Mrs. Cleveland retired, amid the prolonged cheeriug of the great crowd present, and were driven to their hotel, aud while the President went to dine with the Hi bernian Society at St George's Ilall. Mrs. Cleveland changed the dress she had worn in the morningifor a pretty dark-brown, with a delicate bonnet to match, and with Mr 3. Lamont and the other ladie3 who came with her from Washington proceeded on a special train to Wooton, tho hand some summer residence of George W. Child*. The party invited by Mr. and Mrs. Childs was very select, yet tbe spa cious lawq> surrounding the house and saloons in it were crowded with an ever-moving throng of brilliantly attired ladies aud gentlemen. All the Army aod Navy officers in town were present, as well as the distin guished men and dignitaries, with representatives of Philadelphia's best society. To Mrs. Cleveland, stand ing beside Mrs. Childs, the guests were presented upon their arrival, aud from 3 o'clock to G the bright procession passed by. Those pre sented paused but to exchange a word or so, and then went away to allow those who followed the same privi lege. It is unnecessry to say that the decorations at Wooton were ele gant. Words fail to describe the beautiful effects which Mr. and Mrs. Childs had managed to produce in their already beautiful place. It was a grand affair, a scene that will long fcs remembered. In tho afternoon the President ap peared at the closing feature of the celebration, a banquet given at the Academy of Music by the University of Pennsylvania, American Philo sophical Society, College of Physic ians, Law Academy, Historical So ciety, Franklin Institute, Academy of Fine Arts aud the Academy of Natural Sciences. Mrs. Cleveland, attired in a bril liant evening dress, upon which os trich feathers figured prominently, also attended this banquet. At this banquet, in the course of his speech, the President said: On such a day as this, and in the atmosphere that now surrounds him, I feel that the President of tbe U. S should 1)0 thoughtfully modest and humble. The great office he occupies stands to-day in the preaenco of its maker; and it is especially fitting for this servant of the people ami crea ture of the Constitution, amid tho im pressive scooes of this Centennial occasion, by a rigid self-examination to be assured concerning his loyalty and obedience to tbe law of his exis tence Ho will find that the rules prescribed for his guidance require for the performance of his duty, not the intellect or attainments which would raise him far above the feeling and sentiment of the plaiu people of tho land, but rather such a knowledge of their condition and sympathy with their wants and needs as will bring him near to them. —With tho Fair last week, and the Reception to the survivors of the 11th l'enn'a Reserves this week, our town has been crowded and our peo ple have seen much to interest and instruct them. —September secm3 to be the choice month for displays, public celebra tions aud ceremonies. This present one at least has been so all over the country. —During the past two weeks many of our subiribers in arrears called and settled up and took a new start. Put there are yet many ac counts that it is very dtsirable to have paid up, in order that needed improvements to the paper may be made and our debts paid. The ex penses of publishing a paper are heavy; machinery will wear out, and money is con3tautly needed. We again request the attention of all sub cribers to this matter. Dr. Roth Honored. From Greenville papers of Sept. 1«».] In view of the resignation of Rev. l>r 11. VV. Kotb, President of Tbiel College, and the acceptance of the same by the Board of Trustees, and, the subsequent possible removal of j the Dr. from our place, it was deem- , ed proper that he should not be per- j milted to go without some public no- j tice being taken of the event. A j meeting of citizens was called for last ' Friday evening, at Laird Opera House, and when the evening came the Opera House was well tilled in all parts by au intelligent audicace composed of representative gentle men and ladies of our town, in the audience, too, were quite a number of the Lutheran General Council, in session in this place at the time. J. T. Blair, General Manager of the S. A. It. It., presided, and iu taking the chair made a few pertinent remarks. Rev. C. B. Wakefield, pas tor of the Presbyterian church, led in prayer. A. F. Henleiu, Esq., chair man of the committee on resolutions, j presented the following, which were adopted: The citizens of the borough of Greenville, assembled in the Opera House on the Oth day of September, A. D. 1887, to tender a public recep tion to H. W. Roth, desirous of ex pressing their appreciation of the learning, high character, and integ rity of one of their number, and their love and esteem for him and their disappointment at the unexpected termination of his official connection with Thiel College, to which institu tion be has given the best part of his life and ability, have unanimously adopted the following resolutions. Resolved, That in Dr. Roth his fellow citizens and neighbors have always found a kind and generous friend, a wiso counselor and an up right man, one whose public and pri vate life have been a high example to the young men of the college and this community, and to whose efforts, largely, the preEent prosperity of the college is due. Resolved, That in the performance of the arduous duties of his position as President and preacher, I)r. Roth has filled the measure of duty, never refused to sacrifice his own interests to the welfare of the college or turn ing a deaf ear to the calls of charity, at once performing well the duties of President, and by his kindly words and unassuming life aud Christian character preaching a practical ser mon every day ofhis life for all of us. Resolved, That the citizens of the borough having contributed consid erable sums to the construction and support of Thiel College, and being interested for this and many other reasons in the continued prosperity of the institution, deeply deplore the acceptance of the resignation of Dr. Roth as President, and hope that the Board of Trustees may be able to find another man equal to him in charac ter, learning, and integrity, and who may occupy the fame position in the hearts of his neighbors that Dr. Roth always has. Resolved, That we extend to Dr Roth our best wishes for continued success in whatever po3itiou he may occupy, with the hope that he may go forward in his work of doing good with renewed effort, encouraged by a firm belief in Him who doeth all things well. Brief remarks were then made by Rev. S. 11. Eisenberg, of the ltaform ed church, Rev. C S. Tinker, of the Baptist church, J. C. Brown, Wm. Achre, E. S. Tcmpleton, Esq, and F. H. Keller, Esq. Rev. J. R. Brit tain, D D. of the U. P. church, then took the platform and in an admirable presentation speech, presented Dr. Roth with a valuable gold watch, ac companied by a list of the names of those who contributed towards pur chasing it. The whole affair was quite & suc cess, and nothing was said or done which ought to be offensive to any one. Dr. Roth made a strong appeal in behalf of Thiel College and for his successor, whoever ho may be, aud the sentiment was universal that the interests of Thiel College must al ways be kept in view and promoted by all honorable means. An Old Veteran Vindicated. HEADQ'RS LYSANDEU ROBB POST. ) No. DEPT. PA , G. A. R. BRUIN, Sept. 5, 1887 Y On account of a clerical error in the records in the Adjutant General's office at Harrisburg, and also in Bates' History of the War, the statement appears that James W. Orr, a pri vate of Company I, lt):> Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers, enlisted at Harrisville, Butler county, now re siding at Bruin, Butler county, was a deserter from the United States ser vice. Now, how ibat error was made at Ilariisburg, or how Hates made tbo error, we do not kiiow, but we do know that tbo papers iu James W. Orr's posssession, and a statement wc have from the Adjutant General at Washington, I>. C., stute that James W. Oir, of Co, 1, 103 d Reg I'. V., was discharged from the Igni ted States service August 13, 1SI)2, for disability. Therefore, James VV Orr's record in the War Department at Washington. I). C., is without blot or gtvin. Further, we can, of our own po - sonal knowledge, prove Bates' His tory incorrect iu two or more instan ces, and the only authority wo recog oizo is*tho records in the War I)d --partment at Washington, I).

The celebration in Philadelphia last week, Sept. 15, 10, and 17, of the first century of the formation of the Constitution of the United States, wa3 the grandest affair yet wituessed in this country. Ou the first day was a parade il lustrating the industries of the Na tion and the great change in them from now and a hundred years ago. This was an immense exhibition of all the mechanical and other arts aud works. The second day was the military display, in which 15,000 men were in line, makiug tbo grandest parade of the militia of all the States. The Governors of the different States were present, riding at the head of their men. The third and closing day cere monies were of a literary and social character, in which addresses were made by tbo President of the United States, the President of tho Centen nial, aud other distinguished citizens. An address on the Constitution was made by Justice Miller of the United States Supreme Court. It would take a book to contain aud tell all said and done. Sullied for us to say the first Centennial celebration of constitutional government iu this [country was a grand success. A Gibbet 28 Feet Long. CHICAGO, Sept. 18.—Preparations were begun yesterday for the execu tion of the seven Anarchists in the county jail on Friday, November 11. Sheriff Matson will receive S7OO for that day's work, as the county allows him SIOO for every man hanged. Just how the big job will be accom plished has not been decided. The three Italian murders were hauapd to gether on the same scaffold, ana that bit of enterprise taxed to the utmost limit the hanging capacity of the jail. One scheme is to hang the men in pairs, leaving Albert it. Parsoc3 to the last as the seventh or odd man. The law says the men must be exe cuted between the hours of 10 in the morning and 4 iu tha afternoon, aud it is thought the intervening time wiir suffice for the worji on this plan If this mode is adopted the modern weights will be U9ed. Sheriff Mat son is opposed to the plan because of t-be long-drawn-out agony of a day's work at hanging, and favors the old. fashioned platform , trap and drop. There is just enough room in the jail corridor to erect an extension gib bet twenty-eight feet long, giving four feet space for the drop of each body. Seven ropes will hang from the cross-beam, which in turn will be supported by five iron arms. The traps will be arranged to drop from a long bar extending the length of the platform by which the seven traps can be released simultaneously and the seven Anarchists be all launched into eternity together. Tho exten sion gibbet will be erected privately in some secret place during the next fortnight, and experiments will be made until it works in a satisfactory manner. If tbe condemned Anarch | ists really hope for success in appeal ing to the Federal Supreme Court or to Gov. Oglesby, their hope is not shared by Sheriff Matson, Jailer Folz or State's Attorney Gricnell, and all necessary preparations for the execu | tion of the sentence will proceed rap i idlv. The Sheriff has tried hard to keep from the papers the feet that he is preparing to put away the doomed nieii and be will have succeeded until the publication of this. Spies, Schwab and Engel are confident tbat their execution will take place at the time fixed by the Supreme Court, aDd Parsons is the only one of the number who expresses confidence in the ability of their friends to save their lives.

Friends may think to comfort the bereaved wife, feel ing that they can sympathize with her; but is it not true that when we, who have buried members of our own families, witness the sorrow of another, the tears we she.l are often the result of the rc-opecing of wounds, which our one-time sympathisers thought time had healed. Christ alone can comfort the sor rowing by that peace that glides into the heart, we know not where or ho - .v, still we feel its presecce. M. J. D.
