; GOOD SUGGESTION.'*
"When you couie totheriver leap it,it's only twenty feet across/' 6aid a monkey to a sloth. "That's a very valuable sug gestion, indeed," replied the sloth, blink ing his eyes. The London Times is equal ly pleased with Secretary McCulloch's proposition to pay off the national debt. "By all means," says the Times , "it's a most excellent idea; we'll do so too." They owe about as much as we; They have as numerous a population; why should not the English pay off their na tional debt if the Yankees do ? This is evidently the reasouing of the Times Perhaps it may save the Times some trouble and ink,if we point out a fewof the causes which will prevent them from following cur example. In the first place,we have got the cheap est form of government in the world, and they the dearest. There arc probably a hundred offcers about the British Court who receive twice, and some four time®, the pay of the President of the United States. There is scarcely a bishop of the English Church but receives more than we pay the President; and one of Queen Victoria's grandchildren draws a greater sum per annum from tne Brisish treasury than the President and all his cabinet take from our own. Because offices arc nu merous, the pay extravagant,and the peu sion and gratuity list as long and nearly as costly as the pay list, therefore the British debt will not be so easily paid off as ours. That is one reason. Then again, owing to the fact that ehe has troublesome neighbor?, an Emperor given to building iron-clads and keeping up an enormous army, aud a whole conti nent full of rulers who are for the most part either rogues or fools, or both, Eng land must 6pend vast sums every year on & mighty army and navy. She lives, in fact, in the state in which a man would be who should barricade his house, stick guns out of all his windows, keep half a shop full of workmen day and night un der arms, and spend a third of his income in powder and shot, and new inventions for killing men. We, on the contrary, have DO dangerous neighbors, and do not stay up of nights or keep up armies for fear of an attack from some treacherous friend. That is another reason why the British debt will not ho paid off as soon as ours. Again, we have free trade over the greatest and best part of our continent; a producer here has an uurestiicted market over a region as great as all Europe except Ilussia. Rut the English producer can not set foot outside of his little island without meeting with vexatious restric tions, and having to pay duties aud bribes Without number, lie does not get out of flight of his own chalk cliffs before he comes upon custom houses aud all kinds of ingenious commercial barriers. That is another reason why the British debt will not be paid off so easily as ours. _ Moreover, education is far more gener ally diffused, the mass of the people are made by our free-school system more en ergetic aud ingenious, and they are able therefore, to produce more per man than the ma'B of the English people, to whom free schools have been denied by their ruling class. That is another and a very important reason why the British debt will not be paid off so easily as ours. Again the system of land tenure in England grinds down the poor man, and prevents him from becoming other than a teuant, while the whole social organiza tion represses individual enterprise aud by so much lames the Englishman aud snakes him move in clogs. But with us land is cheap and easily obtained ; the workman,if he is intelligent andindustri cits, may always expect to become an em ployer, and the entire freedom of move ineut over a vaet regiou eucourages enter prise, stimulates intellectual activity to the utmost, and increases production to the highest point, because brain aud hand work together. That is another reason why the British debt will not be so readily discharged as our own. There are many reasons, as an anato mist could tell the Times, why the sloth did not leap across the liver, while the monkey did. So there are many reasons why the Times' pleasant proposition to pay off the British national debt will not for the present be adopted. We have presented only a few of them ; but the looger any intelligent man considers the .subject, the more he will be convinced ihat, if the British may wisely leave their debt alone, there is no excuse for us. We ought to pay, because we can pay; aod in every plan of taxation a scheme for the extinction of the debt ought to have a part. Over a million of Springfield rifle mus-' ]cets,and immense suppliesof ammunition | for small arms and cannon, are stored away in Northern arsenals. The notorious counterfeiter named Rob erts whose arrest in New lork was no ticed some weeks ago, has escaped from the jail in Brooklyn. American securities are DOW the most acceptible of all the loans offered for sale at Erankfort-on-the-Main. A treasury clerk was sent to jail in "Washington, charged with stealing $35,- 000 in United States bonds. The cashier of the sub-Treasury at San Francisco is a defaulter in the sum of $500,000. A gonstitutional amendment reported in the U.S. Senate, provides that noclaim ■hall hereafter be reoogDued for the pay ment of losses by tho emancipation of the 1 tTM, THE JOURNAL. Coudcrsport, Pa. Tuesday, Feb, G. 186 G. M. W. McALARNEY, EDITOR. Senatorial Delegate. Hon. John S. Mann, of Potter County, Is presented by that county as a Senatorial Del ; egate to represent this District in the March Convention. Mr. Mann is a gentleman of ability, and would do credit to the District in the Convention. Before we commit ourselves in his favor, however, we would like to know how he stands on the Gubernatorial question. We believe the sentiment of this County is decidedly in favor of a military man for a candidate, piovided be is competent for the place. If such an one cannot be found, then we want a candidate selected from the Re pifblican party—a man who has worked in the traces of the party at least for five years past. Wc are opposed to nominating "latter aay-saints." We have had a surfeit of those kind of nominations within the past few years, and we now propose to go in for mn who have been "tried and not found wanting." The above from the McKean Minar meets with our hearty approval. We believe in supporting men for all and every position, who have been "weighed in the balance" and NOT ' found wanting." We cannot speak knowingly for Mr Mann, but a friend informs us that he is positive his inclinations and influence lean strongly to the side of Gen. John W. Geary. That he ha 3 approved of Gen. Geary's course ever since the Kan- I sas Gubernatorial question, we know. The people in this county seem to think of no one but Gen. Geary in connection with that posi tion ; the people of Tioga through their organ have signified their desire for his nomination; McKean county, if we can judge correctly the tenor of the above article, is influenced by the same spirit;—and finally Mr. Mann is rep ! resentative, and we know would safely, ably, and conscientiously support the choice of his constituents. We have not an opinion from our friends in Clinton, but we have great faith in their republicanism, and believe that "they feel as we feel." It has been a long time—so long that the memory of the oldest inhabitant runneth not to the contrary—since we were represented in a State Convention by a Senatorial Delegate,and as Mr. Mann was one of the pioneers of Republicanism in this section, we felt that it was a compliment which be and are glad that it has met with the just approval of our neighbors. Legislative, The crowded state of our columns prevents o ur giving a very extended report of the Leg islative proceedings. The Atlantic and Grea 1 Western and Pennsylvania Railroad quarrel occupies much of the time. The instruction to the members of Congress from this State was ably discussed. On the Ist of February the House considered the joint resolution urging Congress to resist the admission of any Southern States into full fellowship until the organic law of the nation shall be so amended a3 to protect the credit of the Gov ernment, to prevent the payment of the rebel debt, to define the paramount authority of the Geueral Government, etc. Mr. Mann delivered a speech in which he assumed the position that the rebels were as yet unrepentant, and that they should not as yet be admitted to full membership in the Union. Mr. Mann presented a lengthy petition from the Grand Lodge of Good Temblars of Per.n- J sylvania, against the sale of intoxicating liquors, which was read. Referred to Judic ary Committee. A resolution has been introduced in the Senate to appoint a Committee to report a more uniform system of revenue for Common School purposes, and such other improve ments in the system as they may deem nec essary. Mr. Humphrey reported a bill entitled: An act to extend the provisions of the act of the 31sl day of March, 1865. entitled An act in creasing the fees of justices of the peace, and aldermen and constables, in certain counties of this Commouwealth, to Tioga and Potter, counties. Many of our justices and constables labored under the wrong idea last year that the act in relation to those fees already extended to our county. Mr. Mann reported a Bill entitled An act to change the time of meeting of the return judges of elections in the several counties of this Commonwealth. Mr. Mann also the following reso lution : Resolved , That the great number of appli cants for pensions and gratuities for soldiers of 1812, and of their widows, renders it inex pedient to report aud take action upon a bill for each applicant; and the Chmmittee on Pensions and Gratuities are, therefore re quested to dispose of all such applicants by a general bill. Which resolutiot was adopted. jfogyThe County Convention of Lancaster county have nominated Hon, John W. Geary for Governor, Gen. Geary is gaining in strength every day and at present seems to have the best chance for the nomination in the March Convention. A good man with an honorable record both In civil and military life he would make a strong and popular can didate and an able and honorable Executive. Large Tire in Franklin. FAANKLIN, Feb. I. — A fire which broke osrt b-ere at 4 o'clock, A. M. to-day destroyed twenty-four buildings in the centre of the town, including the- postoffice, the Lamberton House, Stanford's Theatre and the Masonic building, which was just completed. The entire loss is estimatee at $600,000, about one half of which is insured, principally in East ern companies. When the fire broke out a jtrong wind prevailed, which ceased about 6 o'clock, A. M. The firemen were then enabled to get control cf the flames; but for this nearly the whole business part of the town would have been destroyed. All the mail matter was saved, Tie fire originated ia * brothel. OUR OIL WBLL. / Mr. Gorduier informs us that he has pro cured the lease of one thousand acres ofland, aDd has the promise of as much more, be sides two thousand acres from parties who leased the laud some time Ago, but did not improve it, and who have stated their will ingness to assign their leases to this company. He reports forty shares subscribed on his list but cannot report from the other as he has not seen it lately. The engine is at Wells ville, and will be brought to this place some time thi3 week. He will leave the latter part of the week for Titusville to procure necessary tools to commence the work. If the lease of the Eulalia Farm, south of the village, can be procured, one of the first wells will doubtless be put down on it. Such is a statement of the progress of those who are in pursuit of oil in Potter. That they nave every reason to believe they will be suc cessful in their effort is being every day more fully proven. The recent "strike" of oil in Bradford county, which we publish below and about tbe truth of which there seems to be no doubt, is a strong practical argument in favor of immediate action in our valley. The very nature of the country is such, that if oil is found in paying quantities east of the region denominated the "oil region," it surely must be here. We have the coal, and many sur face indications which they have not at many places where traces of oil have been found. They found oil at Whitesville, but just when they had succeeded their tools became fast in the well, since which time they have not been able to do much. We were informed a few days since that they would soon be in active operation again, with a very fair show of get ting a sufficient quantity of oil to make it pay. Let our citizens accept this opportunity,— and make such use of it as wise men should The Shares are put at a low figure that all might take part—the amount will be paid in instalments. There are very few who are not able to take one, two, or three shares, at least. If success crown our efforts, there are none so blind but that they can see the great advantages which must accrue to them—if we fail, the loss will be small, and we will have the satisfaction of knowing that we did our duty. Remember the old motto : "Nothing ventured, nothing won." SYLVAXIA.— We'are informed by an individual coming from the Sylvania Well to day, that there is nothing surer than the strik ing of oil there, and that the well has been flowing since Tuesday morning at a rapid rate. Mr. E. G- Tracy was in town yesterday with specimens of this oil, which he himself took from the well, and which is pronounced by all those who have seen it, as being of a superior quality. Operations with the drill have been suspended, and we doubt not but that imme diate preparations for procuring Tanks, Bar rels,etc.,are now being made by Superintend ent Geo.V.Pomeroy who 13 the "right man in the right place," and who possesses the ener gy and snap to push this thing to its fullest extent. This certainly is good news for this section of Bradford, and it gives us pleasure to herald it. Hurrah ! for Sylvania say we.— Troy Times. SIR MOUTO PKTO. —The subjoined brief sketch of Sir Morton Peto, the leading spirit in tbe Atlantic & Great Western Railroad Company will be read with interest: Morton Peto commenced life as a mechanic and by dint of honest industry and enterprise has gained 'he title of 'The Railway King of the World.' lie is represented as being a talk ative and agreeable person, careful in his bearing and speech, and a devoted member of the Baptist church. He heads the railway interest of England, and is largely interested in several American lines, prominent among which is the Atlantic & Great Western. He controls the employment of one hundred thou sand men, and his speculations embrace the United States, Canada, Russia, Austria, Italy, Peru, New Zealand and Australia. The la borers on the lines he regulates, are said to really outnumber tbe fighting British army. He is largely interested in the operations of subterranean London, where his workmen are 'picking' night and day, and his engines rumbling under the foundations of quiet bouses. It is said that in the empire of Aus tria alone, eight thousand men eat his bacon, and this is but n small portion of his army of laborers. His late visit to tbe United Slates will likely resnlt in still larger investments. He is certainly entitled to the name Railway King, though his habits dnring his visit have been of rigid republican simplicity. PREDICTIONS FOR THE YEAR IS66.—The year 1866 will be a very eventful one to every maiden who gets married. Throughout the whole course of the year, whenever the moon wanes the nights will grow dark. If dandies wear their beards there will be less work for barbers. He who wears a mous tache will have something to sneeze at. Whoever is in love this year will think his mistress an angel. Whoever gets married will find out whether ibis true. He that loses his hair this year will grow bald. He that loses his wife will become a wid ower. If a young lady should happen to blush she will look red in tbe face. If she dreams of a young man three nights in succession, it will be a sign of something. If she dreams of him four times or have the toothache, it is ten to one that she is a long time getting either of them out of her head. If any one jumps overboard without know ing how to swim, it is two to one that he gets drowned. If any one lends an umbrella, it is ten to one he is obliged to go home in the rain for his pains. Whoever runs ia debt this year will be dunned. Many an old sinner will resolve to turn over a new leaf this year, but the new leaf will turn out a blank. It is probable that if there Is no business doing, people will eomplain of hard times, but it is certain that those who hang them selves will escape starving to death.—Atlen toum Democrat.
