Ilarter, formerly Editor of the Pnsr wrote of what he sas he saw and heard in Snyder county. His let ter is as follows : , Berks county has bad its reputation as a De erali sitonglcilil from lime immemorial. Snyder county may be classed as irrevocably and irredeema bly Kepubiic.in. Peiius ami Itnisli Valleys, this county, arc the Democra tic strongholds, because they ale inha bited mostly by Pennsylvania Her mans w ho seldom change their politi cal faith. This in all probability ac counts for the regular and overwli lin ing Kenibliean majority in Snyder county. Both districts are "sot" in their faith, aud their customs are us unchangeable as the laws of the Medes and Persians. Yeais agoSnydei county had its leaders the one was .lele ('rouse, who served as piothonotary for seven successive terms ..r twenty one years. Tlie other leader was Daniel Bolcnder, now deceased, who was elected live times to the ollioe of sber ill'. As these two leaders belonged to the same party Kepublicau-and al ways had a safe majority behind them, many weretlieacriiuonious campaigns through which they passed lo retain the leadership. Both were skilled politicians, liberal, open hearted, ready to forglv: their enemies ami marshal them to their individual support at the next campaign ; for as soon us one campaign was over they turned over a m w leaf in the political ledger and be gan to pave the way for the next con test two in three years hence, when I hey would again come up for olliee. Crouse was the accepted Cameron and (Juay leader and so potent was his in llueuce with the people that many looked to him for all changes in the government which they considered necessary. Upon one occasion one of his constituents warned him that if he dj I nel, v'U'out reiluctiou f ,; Ui . tarill' ou siig.ii' lie would lie defeated In the next campaign. Luckily the price of tlie commodity came down and J ere was gien the eieilil lor il and was triumphantly i h eied for his ellective work in lessening Iheexpen-i' of can ning fruit. To-day the coiiely has many leaders, ami il is declared that liion;:h ibe campaign prae, ieaily emt io; securing inc I e pti1 'ii. an iioinnia I ion, I hi',i x pi 'i:se of o'ntaiiiinu il doi not justify the attempl ; fm ike in 'el. lie county, I hey have I heir l.-ai!s who w nul l sen lli 1 1' I'll ih-i'n.' Ill for a mess i.f J ul i idee, forget principle and vote for the man willi the long pur-e or l he well-lLleil demijohn, So nun h f.ir Snvdcr county po;:iies w hich like our ow n county badly needs the appli cation of banner i c ami a scrubbing billsh. The citizenship of the county is piineipally composed of thai sturdy class of people know n as l'eniis Ivauia Dutch the best people on ( iod's green earth. Slow but .sure-- they never tra vel on the cow-catcher imr on Lie rear platfoim, but w hen the train rolls into the depot they are all there w ith both feet. Commercially they are well-to-do though they may not look it ; which recalls an incident of our own experi ence. A man appeared on the diamond at Middleburg some years ago during court week (which is theipiarter-annial occasion for the uatliui ing of the clans i and ollered harness at put.hc sale. Not receiving any bids at his lirst ollering, lie became very much discouraged, de claring that these people had no money and that he was going home ; where upon some friend informed him that they bad more money than he ever saw, aud that if he would once get them started he would soon sell all he had. He concluded to stay until the next day, when bidding began and he sold three dozen sets in less than two hours. The astonishing feature of the whole affair was that only two of the purchasers accepted the lilieral time payment which was ollered the rest all paying ca.sli for their purchases. The town of Middleburg, the county seat, is becoming quite a beautiful lit tle town. Notwithstanding the com bined population of Franklin and Mid dleburg of about 800, it baa one rattling fine bank and another one started for which the building is in course of erection. It has good buildings and good substantial people, but they are too slow else they would not have com mitted the unpardonable blunder of al lowing an outside corporation to bring ou the moiiev from S to .10 per cent invested. Among its men w ho gained a place in history are ioveruer Snyder, after w hom the county was naiiieil, w hose remains li buried at Selinsgrove, ami another was Honorable ,.- Middles wa' lh, lo: g since dead, a member of Congress nnd ., Iu. fnotable charac ter. He was a typical Pennsylvania I iteliiuan, ami possessed not only a slroiig intellect, indouiinahlc energy ami great political acumen, but enjoy, ed an abundance of Me dry huinoi and natural wit forw lii. h that race is noted. I bis strikingly iiianifesi. il is,.f during bis term in Congress w hen one of bis colleagues delivered himself an address w 1 1 i l I was so embellished w ith Latin ami (ireek iilolal ions that it disgusted the old veteran, and at its conclusion he jumped to bis feet and began a har angue in Pennsylvania Dutch which so astonished (he speaker that he call ed upon him I'm- an explanation of his outlandish utterances, declaring that he was out of order. Mr. Middles wartli blandly explained his action In stating that the language tub Iressed to the last speaker was good, old Penn sylvania Dutch, and that lie meant by il to convince tlie House that tlie last speaker was not tlie only man in that body who could handle two languages. This performance, with his already re cognized ability, attracted attention to him and a short time later, at a ban iiet, be was relucted to carve the turkey iu Pennsylvania Dutch style. Mr. iWidilleswarth promptly accepted the challenge, and placing the bird iu front of him he sliced oil" a "drum stick" and "second-joint" which lie de livered ou his own plate, and then, setting the turkey hack in the middle of the table, remarked:' "Now, gen tlemen ; help yourselves. That is Pennsylvania Dutch style !" Our visit last week was principally confined to McKecs 1 Falls, where we went for the purpose of catching fish, but b our surprise lound that the 'has tor w hich the State has stopped almost all kinds of fishing aud spent thou sands of dollars in legislation for their preservation, had mysteriously disap peared, and we didn't get a bile.

His table is a realization of tlie hunter's dream whose provisions are exhausted and lie goes hungry to sleep. As high as llfty guests at one time flock to his house to eat aud sleep aud listen to the rush of the mighty Susquehanna as it tumbles over tlie falls. There is, moreover, no place iu the State that affords equal opportunity to study human nature. Here it is found in its primitive state. A few incidents will sulllce : Some time ago a native of that local ity, while on his May to the Falls, was overtaken by a minister who invited him to ride along. The conversation drifted along pleasantly for a time, un til the minister asked the boy if he could tell him the way to Meiservllle. "You c bust go down dis here bush till you come to au apple tree Held and then turu right," was the reply. The minister amused by this young man's picturesque English, asked him what he did for a living, to which be replied that he was a day laborei .
