LANiiNO, Mich., has a young female barber, aged 14, who ia largely patronized by the Michigan legislators. Thebe was a man so intensely polite, that as he passed a hen on her nest, he said': "Don't rise, ma'am." "Sambo, did you ever see the Catskill Mountains ?" "No, Clem; but I've seen cats kill mice." If a man has any religion worth having, Le will do his duty, and not make a fuss about it. It is the empty kettle that rattles. An Erie damsel was recently crimping her front hair with a flat iron.

Snake's Antipathy to Fire,—There is in Brazil a very common, poisonous snake", the Surucucu, respecting! ^hich the inhabitants relate the following facts: They say that such is. the antipathy of this reptile j.o iire, that when fires are being made in the clearing away of woods, they rush into it, scattering it with their tails till it is extinguished, even becoming half roasted in the attempt; and that when an individual is passing at night with a torch, they pass and repass.him, lashing him with their tails till he drops, it, and the snake is immediately found closely coiled around the extinguished torch. The greatest enemy of this snake is.an immense lizard, five or six feet long. It is said that' whea the snake succeeds in effecting a bile, the lizard, rushing, info the woods, eats some herb, and returns lo the conflict, which almost invariably terminates in its favor.

Advertising.—The' Bellefonte Republican has a larger- circulation than any other Republican paper published, in the county. Our merchants and business men will please make a note of this. Who are the Imperialists? The Democratic Watchman and the •entire Copperhead press are apparently greatly concerned about a new paper} started a few weeks since, in New York, entitled The Imperialist. They are laboring to make the impression that this paper is started and published in the interests of the Republican party. They know better. They know that Ihere is not an imperialist or monarchist in the ranks of the Republican party. They also . know that every man -who hates freedom, who loves slavery, who hates Republicanism or genuine Democracy, and who advocates a monarchical form of Government, are found in the ranks of the Copperhead or sham Democratic party. Nearly every rebel in the South is in favor of a monarchical Government. They, claim that Republican Government has proved a failur...

By Their Fruits. When, says the Newark Courier, a party is to be adjudged, it is by the fundamental principles of its-platform and the acts of its administration. By this rule how appear the national records of the Democratic and Republican party ? The Democratic party has always taught the principle of State sovereignty, and denied the right of the Federal Government to maintain its own integrity. Under these anarcrr ical teachings, it fostered the most treasonable sentiments, coccocttd one of the most stupendous rebellions on record, armed and equipped it so far as a bankrupted national treasury could do it, and made the astonishing declaration in a speciously worded message, that there was no legal authority for suppressing the rebellion or cneroing the seceded States, and our Union was but a "rope of sand," destined to fall to pieces by its own weight. No power, they said—for so they hoped—could save it. In this condition they yielded up what they considered the exhausted po...

The National, in last week s issue, complains of the action of the County Committee in selecting a delegate to the State.Convention, and leaving him uninstructed. It also criticises the Committee because there were so few in attendance, and intimates that they had no proper authority to select, one of the Editors of this paper, on the ground that he had declared himself in favor of Hartranft for Governor. If there were not enough of the Committee to select a delegate, it strikes us, it would not have been less presump tuous to instruct a delegate in the name of the county. As the action of the committee was perfectly regular, and the meeting held in accordance with a call published \>y proper authority, we cannot see the propriety of the 'Organ' calling their action in question, or refusing to publish the proceedings of the only body that can represent the party in the coumty. The allegation that either the delegate selected, or the Republican, is committed to the nominat...

Prof. Magee was reelected, and his salary fixed at §1200 per annum. The Democrats all voted for Magee, and some fifteen, or twenty Republicans. The Democrats made a political matter of it. The Repuh-. licans labored to keep it out of politics. They were fooled. Fair notice.

Practioe vs. Profession. The Democratic party, says an exchange, professes to be a great stick ler for Constitutional form, and the real exponent of law and order. It assumes (the Providence Press says) to be the special barrier against the encroachments of radicalism, and is constantly warning the country against the pernicious principles of late prevailing and destined to remain operative till the questions involved in the rebellion shall be settled. But that party have a curious practice to show how they construct their professions. The recent course of the Democratic members of the "Indiana Legislature in resigning their seats and leaving each house without a quorum, and a persistency in their factiousness, completely blocking the wheels of Government, is a procedure which ill comports with their professions. It is anarchical, something which overtops radicalism in its worst phases, for it strikes at government itself, and deals a blow which upheaves all law and order. W...

The last Legislature, says the Lewisburg Chronicle, just before its final adjournment, did one good act in the passage of a bill to which attention generally is called. The evil of obscene advertisements, in all their several devices and shapes, has been long felt in almost every community, in the demoralization of society and the ruin of our youth. The last con vention of the Pennsylvania Medical Society, in a series of resolutions, condemned this among other immoralities of the press, and urgently requested the Legislature to enact a law punishing the publication of obscene advertisements in any and every shape. The bill now enacted covers every ca.se of obsceni'.y in advertisements, whether it be of medicines or other means or instrumentality of curing secret diseases or irregularities in male or female and punishes- with fine and imprisonment any person or persons convicted of the printing or writing, as an advertisement or as a poster, or show bill, any such npxious remedie...

Free Trade Movement An important meeting of the.opponents of a protective tariff was held in Boston on the 20th inst. Edward Atkinson presided. He said the old political issues being'settled, the time had come for the remodeling of paities on questions of revenue, financial and civil service reform. The persons concerned iu thi* movement aimed to bring about, a desired change in the fiscal policy of the nation, not by establishing a new political party, but by moulding public opinion. The very existence of New England as a manufacturing region depended upon a cheap supply of food from the West. Cheap food could not be had without cheap transportation, and that was out of the question so long as the heavy duties are levied on railroad iren. William Lloyd Garrison followed, and announced himself a radical free trader. William Endicott. Jr., offered a series of resolutions in favor of duties only for raising revenue ; of reducing the volume of currency and resuming specie payme...
