A General Assistant of Nature.
What is health ? What is disease?
Health is when the supply and expendi
ture are equal. Disease when the supply and
expenditure are unequal.
HRANDRETH'S PILLS impart certain ex
pulsive powers to all matters of the body
whose life is below the standard of the sur
rounding party, or which have remained
longer than nature designed. So in fevers
and ail that class of cases which soon run
into mortification BRANDRETH'6 PILLS
have marvelous curative qualities. Our
bodies are continually changing, and it is by
this change we live. Should matter remain
ia organs beyond the time nature designed,
pain and inflamation set in, which is nothing
more than a preparatory effort for our good.
All Erandreth's Pills are supposed from the
results to do is simply

Fins AT KA>E. —Some three weeks since, a
very valuable sawmill, belonging to Gen. T.
L. Kane, at Kane, on the line of the Phila
delphia and Erie R. R. was destroyed by fire.
The loss to Gen. Kane cannot he less than
$15,000 and the loss to the Railroad compa
ny who ere erecting extensive repair shops,
a round house, Ac., and to the citizens who
contemplated building at Kane this season,
is almost irreparable. We are gratified to
stale, however, that another mill will be
built as soon as men and means can build it.
Gen. Kane, with his usual promptness and
energy, is pushing the work forward with all
possible dispatch.

! Hannah Martha Simpkin3, which called forth
i heartfelt enthusiasm.
Song—"We're a band of sisters."
! After which, as the tea was cooling, they
p-oceedcd to the supper table—Mercy Ann
Livcforever and Felicia Dorothea Nipper
carrying the banner on which was inscribed
• Liberty for all—a union with no man."
On seating themselves, they were horrific-d
to find that the splendid bouquet that graced
the centre of Lc table contained a bachelor's
button, but as Jemima Mebitable Snapdragon
j had the courage to throw the vile thing away
| with jusi indignation, they proceeded to par
take of the delicacies set before them.
The following toast was offered by Alvira
| Charitv Green :
Old Maids—who, though racciing in a crab-
I apple orchard, are not yet reduced tobouquets
of "thistles and tansy."
Responded to by Mercy Ann Livcforever.

of the earth and be seen no more ; by Ange

Response by Felicia Dorothea Nipper.
Fearing that the sentiment justoflercd can
not conveniently be complied with, Alvira

May Old Bachelors flourish forever —at the
Bachelors' Re'reat.
Responded to by the whole sisterhood.
* Dessert.
Araminta Jane Scragg3 and Jerusha So
phronia Pillicoddy, having partaken freely,
of the persimmons, which formed part of the
bountiful repast, felt in a mood of singing,
favored the rest of the company with a long
song, the concluding verses cf which are
particularly fine:
May the suh shine on as it ever has done,
May our names as changeless remain ;
And .10 Cupid darts ever pierce our hearts,
May we never have "Love on the brain.
We hope that the day is not far away,
When no bachelor can us provoke
With the words we now hear whenever
they're near
As, "Ladies, permit me to smoke."
May bullet 3 still fly—may smoke cloud the
sky—
May cannon continue to roar :
May the trumpet still call until it takes all,
And then will our troubles be o'er.
*
The following resolutions were then
adopted :
Eeeoived, That while we deplore the rava
ges made in our ranks during the past year
by the disease called Matrimonium t we are
consoled by the thought that the opposite
sex suffered quifb as severely as our own.
Eesolvcd, That those unfortunate members
of our band who have been unabie to join us
here, have our heartfelt sympathy, and that
for their benefit, a report of this meeting be
sent to the POTTE?. JornxxL for publication.
Rcoh: That when the snail- sof another
summer shall have called forth the buds and
blossoms on the crab-apple tree?, we will
mee; again in this, cur favorite retreat, to
renew our resolutions of the present year.

At this juncture the form of Jeremiah Clod
pole was seen, passing through the orchard
on his way to the Bachelors' Retreat, at sight
of which the company retreated in graceful
confusion. UXE "WIIO WAS TUEIIE.
£-2?* The following is the description of
the large Hotel about being finished in Will-
iarasport:
The whole structure is one hundred and j
fiftv-six feet square. The basement, which j
can hardir be called a basement, as it is only !
about eighteen inches below the surface of.
the surrounding grounds, is as dry as any;
other floor in the house. It will contain a 1
first class Restaurant, Oyster and Eating'
Saloon, which will be situated Jn the north-1
east corner. Iu the southeast corner is a
large room which is to be fitted up for an
elegant Ice Cream Saloon for ladies. On the
west side are the rooms for washing, ironing,
baking, Jcc. The basement also contains a
Barber Shop, Store-room for the use of the
Hotel, and about fifteen sleeping rooms for
the use of the employees of the House. In
the centre is an open area sixty-six feet
square, which is reached by an open arch
way. Here are the rooms for depositing;
coal, kc..
The next story—which must be called the ;
first—is divided by Lulls, or entries, running :
through the centre of the building at right
angles, making four entrances, one for each
side, besides one entrant# into the Dining
Room from The Railroad Depot, when that
structure is'built. At one side cf thi3 en
trance is a Wash Room for gentlemen, and
on the other a similar Room, with private
Saloon attached, for ladies. The Dining
Room is 129 feet long by 40 feet wide, and;
will be furnished in elegant style with j
small oral tables. There is also an outer >
entrance from the west front. These \
enhances are all from a verandah, which
extends around the north, south and wes*
fronts. The central north'entrance l*adsto;
the Office —a large and spacious apar:ment—:
connecting with a Bar-Room, and from that
to a Billiard Saloon, £c. On the cast, ir the
ladies' private entrance. On the left is the
ladies' Reception Room, which is connected
by foldin:* doors with the ladies' Parlor in
the northeast corner of the building. Trom
the south entrance, by turning to the left, we
enter a magnificent room which should be a
parlor, but is designed for a Steye for the
sale of gentlemen' and ladies' furnishing
goods. This will be a novelty on the main
floor of a hotel, but will have its conveniences j
and attractions. This story also contains a
room for cookfng, with a large fliTfe to carry '
off the steam and smoke, so that none will l
; escape into the Dining Room or other parts j
jof the Hate?. The secend and third stories
I are occupied by suits of rooms for families !
i and single rooms. They arc all -large and'
'airy, and the doors between communicating
■ rooms so large that a bed can be moved thro' j
i them without taking them apart. A passage
I way, or entry, seven feet wide, runs entirely
. aro'und the centre of these stories, dividing
the rootne into two sets, front and back. The
; passage is well lighted from both ends. The
fourth story has a similar arrangement, but i
: the rooms are smaller and designed for a sin- j
| glebed; but they are large in comparison i
[to the single rooma of mosi, hotels. There 1
j are three main flights of stairs to each of
j these stories, besides the private one for the
i use of the employees of the house. In fact.
. there seems to he nothing left undone which
j could be done to make this a first chiss Hotel.
| unsurpassed In our large cities for extent o?
; room or the perfect arrangement for accorn
imodation of guests. Such a house will,
i necessarily- attract persons who desire a
| comfortable retreat from large cities, and
. will, undoubtedly, be fuhv appreciated.

ered from his injuries as to be able to ride

i of New York.
gentlemen who run the M'Kean
Railroad and Navigation Machine, have been
with us once more and retired, propubly not
to again return until next year about this
| time, vrhc-n they are compelled to visit us
again, in order to retain their charter. FOT
a goodly number of years we have been ae-
I customed to this hind of proceeding, and for
! the life of us we find nothing in it attractive
or which tends to win cur adnrration. The
meetings of the company or* held in sorac
| body's back office, and the proceedings are
clothed with the most profound secrecy.—
Every two or three years the company is
completely metamorphosed, not from the
lart-a to the butterfly, but from one set of
men to another. Whenever a change occurs,
the ntver-despairing, hopeful inhabitants of
the Tallies of Potato and Marvin creek,believe
the change to bo for the better. They are
told that "the road is now certainly to be ;
built," and determined to look only on the
bright side of the.picture, they believe all
they arc told. They remain all the time as
ignorant of the doings of the Company as
though no such company existed, and still
hope on for the improvement to commence,
for the day of deliverance, until "hope de
ferred makeih the heart sick." Such was
the history of the Allegany Valley It. It. Co.,
such Is the history of the M'Kean R. R. and
Navigation Company, and such wc have al
most come to the Conclusion is to be the his
tory of all railroads affecting our immediate
locality, but still we shall continue to "hope
on, hope ever.''
We have reason to be thankful that capi
talists are directing their attention to other
sections of our county, if not to this. The
Buffalo and Bradford Railroad is being com
pleted to the Bond coal bed as rapidly as
men and means can build it. A large
amount of coal is being mined daily, and it
i 3 expected that before the winter months
roll round, the iron horse will be transporting 1
the products of our western 1. ills to the vast
mark< ts of Western New York, the Lakes and
Canada.
So with the Buffalo and Washington IL R. j
The men who have taken hold of this enter- ;
prise are determined to carry it through and
we look upon the eaTly commencement of
operations upon the road without fail.—

Rev. Dr. Cbapin of this city spoke as
follows in Lis 4th cf July oration at:
Albany:
"It has been ours to reassert cur fa
ther's declaration that governments de
rive their just powers from the consent
of the governed. We have the premises,
shall we accept the conclusions that gov
ernment el.all have no power except by
consent cf the governed; that there shall
be 'no taxation without representation ?'
In the assertion of this principle our fa
thers threw the tea into Doston harbor.
How far shall we go in asserting it 1—
Shall there bo no taxation of property
and yet a taxation of labor and bones and
sinews ana thought and speech and the
dearest human lights? Shall there be
a taxation cf any class of men while the
men themselves are unrepresented ? Shall
they give their blood in the hot battle
and their sweat in the field, and yet feel
that they have to vital function in the
organism of the nation ' Shall we allow
them the bullet feat cot the ballot ? Fel
low citizens, the principle that gives its
distinctive character to the Declaration
is the principle cf universal suffrage. It
asserts this radical principle of democra
cy. The condition of universal su.7rr.go
should be universal education, [Ap
plause.] The criterion of a man' 3 vote
should be, that he knows why he votes,
and this will be enforced exactly in pro
portion as he knows what it is that votes.
It is not corn that votes, nor cotton, nor
greenbacks, nor a white skin, nor a black
skin. It is the intelligent will that votes,
or should vote. Let the qualification be
set forth and known as a condition, and
it will become universal. Yon can lift
men into intelligence, the safeguard of
democracy, but you cannot educate them
to be red, black or white."

AN ENTERPRISING FEMALE. —The
Erie Di. patch says : We were somewhat
taken aback, a few coys ago, on the creek
by-meeting a "charming female" who
talked as "pertly" upen oil and oil welis
as any person of the opposite sex wc ever
met. She had sites for sale of any desir
able promise—was quite indifferent about
trading—asked a good royalty, ranging
from three sixteenths to one quarter —
had interests which she consllercd worth
from §50,000 to 8100,000 —did not want
to marry—expected to open an office in
NewqYork soon —had no agents employed,
transacted her own business, and was
ready to negotiate for anything in the
shape cf property from a steam engine to
a State house. ET cetera.

was about eight months old. a sore appeared
frrt in small ]imples on bis forehead over bis
nose. Those rapidly increased and Uniting
formed a loathsome, virulent sore, which fi
ugs.lv snrea i over his forehead and face, not
even exccptiocr bis eyel is, which beeam®
swollen that his eyes were closed. We called
a skillful physician, who administered th<J
usually prescribed remedies. A solution of
i nitrate of stiver was applied until the mess of
corruption which covered his entire faCC
| turned jet black. The sore again and again
burst through the scorched and artificial skin
formed by "this solution. Meanwhile many
remedies were employed without any appa
rent benefit. For fifteen days and night 3hd
| was constantly held by his parents to keep
aim from tearing open with his hands thtf
corrupt mass which covered his face.^
Everything having failed, we were induced
by the high recommendations of Arras Sin-
SArAMLLA far the cure of Scrofulous disease,
'o give it a trial. In Lis treatise on Scrofula.
Dr. Ayer lirccis a mild solution of lodine of
Potash to be used as a wash while taking UitJ
Sarsnpe.rilla, aid it was faithfully applied.
Before one bottle of Sarsaparilia Lad been
given the sore had lost much of its virulence
and commenced to heal. Another bottle
effected an entire cure, and the genera! pre
diction that the child must die was contra
dicted. Ills eyelashes which came ont, grew
again, and his face is left without a scar, as
smooth as anybody's It is unnecessary fur
me to state in how high esteem w6 bold
Ayer'a Sarsaparilia.
