Towanda, Pa., Tuesday, Sept. 13, 1881. EDITORS 8. W. ALVORD. NOBLE N. ALVORD. '•MPaily ilMicir" only 25 rent a per mon I It. Vry it, G. S. Burrows,o le of the editors of the Sunbury Gazette who has been visiting his old home, Stevensvdlo, this county,under date of July 22, wrote a long letter to his paper from which we extract the follow ing interesting paragraphs: The present administration has solidi fied the party here, and Wayne, .Susque hanna, Bradford and Tioga counties, the northeastern quartette, are good for from ten to twelve thousand Republican major ity, nearly one-half of the majority of the State, and nowhere in Pennsylvania can there be found a population so universal ly intelligent, and so well posted on the political affairs of the day, and to this fact, and their inborn sense of loyalty, patriotism and love of country can be at tributed our rousing majorities. Our Congressional representatives, too, have, been worthy of the people and perhaps no one sentence in die English language contains so much history or expresses such a deptli of meaning as these words : "Neither slavery nor involuntary servi tude shall ever exist in any part of said "territory, except for crime whereof the "party shall be first duly convicted."— The men of forty years ago remember the terrible struggle to make the territory acquired f om Mexico slave holding; and they remember too, the young and brill iant orator who fought the wicked scheme inch by inch and with the above sen tence for his guide poured his invectives upon those who opposed him. His lan guage was forcible and impressive—his arguments unanswerable. Those who stood listening to him in the uat'on's capitoi if asked his name, would proudly have replied, David Wilrnot of Bradford and they might have added, tin; man who is laying the foundation of a political par ty destined to be the greatest of any that has ever existed. After Simon Cameron's name was drop ped at the National Republican Conven tion held in Chicago in ISCO, Wilmol threw his great Influence for Lincoln, and doubtless did more than any one man to nominate him. lie was elected to Un united States Senate and took his seat in 18P>0, and after serving two years his health gave out and he was succeeded by Buckalevv. Our next Representative in Congress was Galusha A. Grow, Speaker of the House and author of the "Homestead Act,' who like his predecessor, would nave been elected to the United States Senate in the Spring of 1881 had it been left to the voice of the people. A faction better organized than his, defeated him though a majority of the Republican par ty was for him. Be this as it may tin people of all this district can claim for their Representatives the passsge oi two acts of Congress which have been oi greater value and benefit, to the world than any other two acts of Congress, viz: The "YVilmot proviso," and the "Home stead Act." Is the marked improvement in the con dition of the President a direct answer to the prayers offered up in his behalf? It will bp remembered that during the latest and most severe crisis of his dis ease his physicians, even the most hope ful of them, were filled with alarm, and his recovery was almost entirely dispair ed of. It would be a miracle, said the watchers by his bed-side. Is it a mira cle? That is to say, has there been a special extraordinary interference by Divine Providence to restore him, when he would not have been restored but for the prayers of the people? These prayers be came general and fervent ill the darkest hour of his illness; when, 10, a light # as from heaven began to illumine the dark ness. Most people will believe that it was a direct interposition of Divine Providence. Else what is the good of prayer? Logi cians atl'ect lo ridicule this idea. • They say that the universe is governed by gen eral laws. Lut that may be, and still prayers may be eltieatious; for it may be one of the mysterious principles of the general system that prayer shall exercise a certain influence, seen only in its effect; like the law of gravitation.— Sun. 3rd.
