Towanda, Pa., Saturday, Dec. 10, 1881. EDITORS FI. W. ALVORD. NOBLE N. ALVORI) "Daily Ml evict*" only 525 cents per month. Fry it, A black walnut grove that was planted by a Wisconsin farmer some twenty years ago on seme waste land was recent- j ly sold for $27,000. The trees arc now | from sixteen to twenty inches through. The Post's Washington special says the ! Senate Committee 011 Elections asked to j lie discharged from further considera tion of Warner Miller's case, as the ob jections raised against him had no weight. The surgeons in charge of the Presi dent's case have refused to send their bills to Mrs, Garfield's agent at her re quest, but if the government is willing to pay them $25,000 apiece, they will not reject the fee. There is great excitement in Snyder county, over the arrest of Joseph Mayer, 011 a charge of murdering a peddler (if teen years ago. The crime was revealed by one of the actors in the murder of Kent zcr and wife. The Pensacola( Fla) Advance does not regard Postmaster General James as an out-of-the-way candidate for President, and believes that lie would receive as large a vote in the South as any Repub lican now 111 oilice. President Arthur does justice to his j own intentions and appreciates the special i circumstances of the case by trca ing the ' Star Route cases as State trials, adopting them as his own and urging their vigor ous prosecution. A company lias been organized ia New York for supplying the cities of tiie Eas tern, Middle, Southern and a few of the Western States, with gas, manufactured at thecoal mines of Western Pennsylvania, and conducted to the places of consump tion through pipes. A large number of nominations of presi dential postmasters were sent to the Sen ate yesterday for consideration, it is understood that the Inferior Department will present a number of nominations in a few days, mostly to fill offices in the In dian department. judge David Davis has made an inter esting discovery, He says Peesident Arthur's message is the first document of the sort in forty years that has not re ferred to the South as a distinctive sec tion of the country. Perhaps this cir cumstance is a happy omen of a time not far distant when the South will be a mere geographical term and will have no more political significance than the East or the West has now. Charles Nordhoft'in New York Herald says: There is a lively curiosity about the contents of this, Mr. Arthur's first Message. Representatives and Senators have been engaged ever since their ar rival in Washington, and some of them ever since his accession in "taking his measure," and the universal verdict so far as men speak their minds is that Mr. Arthur is an uncommonly, and to most Congressmen who did not know him, an unexpectedly able man. It takes about S3O for every man, wo man and child in the United States to make up the currency required to meet all the needs of the nation. Controller Knox reports that the aggregate of coin and paper money in the United States at the beginning of last month was $1,455,031,- 092. Of this amount $502,508,971 was gold, $186,037,305 silver, $340,071,010 legal-tender notes and $300,344,250 ua tional bank notes. The perfection of the banking system enables our people to transact their business with a less amount of money in actual circulation per capita than any other people 011 earth. .

During the year 1882 TIIE TRIBUNE hopes to em ploy with increasing success the work and the methods which have won for it so large a measure of popular approval, it has attained, and means never to lose the high standard of success which was aimed at by its founder the largest circulation among the best people. Ho large a circulation and one so widely distributed over the entire territory of the Nation has never been attained by any other newspaper in the United States. We incept this fact as the verdict of the American people upon the conduct and character of the TRIBUNE. Ihe po sition it occupies could never have been gained nor retained but by pre-eminent merits as a newspaper as an organ of sound opinion and an advocate of just publ'c measures. In short the TRIBUNE will as heretofore continue to be the medium of the best thought and the voice of the best conscience of the time; will keep abre ist of the highest progress,favor the freest disctnsion, hear all sides, appeal always to the most enlighten ed intelligence and the purest morality, and refuse peremptorily to cater to the tastes of the vile or the prejud.ees of the ignorant. The well-known special features of the TRIBUNE will be careful'j naintained. Its Agricultural De partment will remain as it is, the fullest and best. The Household and Young Folks' Departments,the literary, scientific and religious features, the stand ard market reports will all be kept up and extend ed as opportunity may serve.
