Powdehlt eohoea tbe oouulry opinion when be s�js that heavy immigration is now decidedly Injurious. The platform which tbe Oregon Republican! adopt this year ia a ringing declaration of party prlooiplea and shows that the party then ia In aound oondltion. Congressman McKinlev has presented in the House a resolution providing that statue of marble, with a proper pedestal, of the lata General Ulysses S. Grant, tendered by tbe National Encampment of tbe Grand Army of tbe Republio, shall be received and ereoted iti Statuary Ball in the United Slates Capitol. The two Republican Senators from Montana have been sworn in and have taken their seats despite the vigorous effort wade by tbe Democracy to rob them of what was tbeir just rights. Tbe atten tion of the country baa been directed to this most singular oontest because of its peculiar surroundings and tbe faot that it was a clear case of attempted steal on tbe part of tbe Democrats. When an over-Indulged pet dog becomes a strong agent in domestic heart trials it is lime tbe said dog should be flung out A young man in trouble with bis wife, after explaining tbe influence of bis mother-in-law as a powerful destroyer of bis family peace, revealed tbe faot that the dog waa bathed in bis washbowl, combed with hisBne-tooth comb and diied with bis towels. Tbe young man bad a good case, it would seem. That rascally Bucks connty embezzler, Bhellenberger, not only robbed bis friends but lie actually robbed bis children of a email estate left them by their grand parents. A reward of �f,000 has been of fered for Shellenberger's arrest, and as he has been seen on tbe Pacifio coast bis oap ture is only a question of time. This is a pretty big world, but the railroad and telegraph make it very narrow fox tbe rascal in his flight from justice. The peopie of Buck country are determined that Bhellenberger shall be punished just like an ordinary thief. A Week of Good Weather.

WANAMAEEfi'GIVES HIS VIEWS Ad Effort to Adjust tbe Duties or PostoAce Employee as Proposed by the Ketch.m Bill Jtagarded as Impracticable, owing to the Great Expense It Would Entail- What It Would Cost. Washington, April 18.-Postmaster General Wanamaker has communicated to the House Committee on Postoffioes and Post Roads bis opinion on the bill introduced by Representative Ketoham, pro. Tiding that eight consecutive hours of labor shall constitute a days work for clerks and employes in all the first, second and third class postoffioes, and that clerks and employes shall be paid for over time'. The Postmaster General says it ris estimated that the present olerks snd em ployes attaobed to these offices are em ployed on an average of twelve hours per day. To limit the hours of labor to eight per day would therefore require tbe following additional amounts for each class named: First class, (1,072,999; seoond class, �383,65�; third class, (105,821, a total of (2,162,479. If 10 per cent, were added for additional oleiks and em ployes on account of the growth and ezpausiou of tbe service, the total estimated amount would be (2,387,^77. "It seems proper to add," he says, "tbat I have consulted with a number of the most practical and successful postmasters upon this subject, and the opinion is unanimous that it ia impracticable to adjust the duties of the clerks so as to give each one a tour of consecutive hours of labor without great waste of money. If your committee should determine to recommend this measure it seems proper to suggest that some provision should be made to credit the government in all cases where clerks and employes for any reason perform less than eight boors labor in any one day." HELEN TjADVBAY WARD mum. H, r Counsel Closes Ber Llpe as to the Separation. New Yobk, April 18.-To-day's developments in the separation of John Montgomery Ward and Helen Dauvray, bis wife, indicate that the pretty actress has a serious grievance, even though it may possibly be facoied, and that there is little prospeot of a reconciliation between her and the great ball-toeser. Mrs. Ward will not admit tbat she is jealous of her busbs'jd, or that jealuusy caused the separation. Such is the case, however, according to the story of friends. Mr. Ward spoke on tbe subject this morning as follows: "The publication yesterday did Mrs. Ward an injustice, which trust her statement printed to-day will remove. The injustice has, however, by inference, only been shifted to me, and I am quite williogto let it etaud ao. Mrs. Ward's statement is a great ten ptation for me to go into a lengthy newspaper discussion, but I shall resist it." Subsequently Mrs. Ward said, concerning tbe separation: "There is grave oause, but my counsel has dosed my lips for to-day. With the consciousness of my devotion and purity as a wife in every possible way I am content to leave the matter in the hands of my oounsel. 1 wish to say again and again tbat my love for the stage was never even placed on the soales to outweigh my love for husband and honor." He Mutt Serve HU Time. New Yobk, April 18.-The General Term to-day banded down an opinion in the case of Dilworth Cboate, the World reporter now in Ludlow street jail undergoing a sentence for contempt of court in entering and concealing himself in tbe ury room where tbe Flack jurorB were deliberating.

Sentence was deferred. CENTRE COUNT!' LOCALS. Btolen Sllverwpro Recovered After Twelve | Yeare-BellefonU'e Mew Opera Hons*.'   | From tbe Bellefonte Gazette. It was twelve years ago tbat this community was disturbed by the commission of several burglaries. In one instance the burglars succeeded in carrying off a large quautity of siverware lroui the residence of the late D. G. Bush, Esq. Though care ful detective search was made neither the burglars or the silver were discovered, is stated tbat a man named Riogold, after ward convicted of another crime, confessed that he bad aided in this burglary and that the Bilrerware was bidden near the gap along the pike leading from Bellefonte ui Milesburg. A search there, however, proved fruitless and the story was concluded to be a hoax, By accident however a few days ago the truth of Ringold's confession waa verified. Two wood haulers coming down the mountain displaced a stone beneath which was an aperture and iu this opening lay concealed tbe silverware all intaot and uninjured. Inquiry and investigation ideutl Bed ibis as the property of Mrs. Bush and it was delivered to her. The articles Included spoons, cake dish, water pitcher, cream jug, sugar bowl, castor, spoon holder and other valuable pieces, which will certainly hereafter possess an unique and peculiar interest to tbe owners. Andrews' funeral occurred at 12 o'clock on Wednesday, the 9th. He was taken by Undertaker Solomon Confer to a point on the north part of Stanley Watson's farm, fully three miles from Milesburg. G. R. Quick looked at tbe body just before the coffin was oonsigned to tbe grave, so it was surely there. Certain rumors have since been afloat that the body bas been stolen, but the grave was marked in a way that it oau be certainly detected should it be tampered with in any way. But what we especially desire is;> for people to remember distinctly the looation of the grave far removed from any habitation or cemetery as possible. Work on the new Opera House r� progressing very rapidly. Tbe foundation walls aje now up and next week the brick work will be commenced. The house is to seat 1,000 people.

One or Tbeir Representative* ia This City BrlcBj Explains Their VJuctilae. Of late there bave been numerous reports concerning the above named sect, who are now disseminating their views in tbis place. It affords us pleasure in view of tbe above, to give tbe good citizens of 11, iB oity at least a brief, idea of them as a denomination. Seventh Day Adveutists are by far the largest body of Adveutists in tbe world. They have organization-) iu every State and Territory in the Union. They bave the largest printing house in Miobigan; the largest printing bouse on' tbe Pacifio coast; tbe largest sanitarium in the world; a college in California and one in Miohigan; an aoademy in Massachusetts; a printing establishment in Basil, Switzerland; one in Christina, Norway, and one in Melbourne, Aus'tralia; a publishing house in London, England. Tbeir mission work baa been enlarged until, besides embraoing tbe greater patt of Eutope, it baa extendbd nearly around tbe world. They are now in tbe process of constructing ou tbe Paoifio coast, a ship fur missionary use among the islands of tbe Paolfic. They believe in salvation through Christ and Him only, and justification by faith through Christ is one of tbe ohief doctrines taught by tbem. Tbeir belief iu Christ's Second oomiog Is what gives them the name of Adveutists, aud because of this title every outbreak of fanaticism by other denominations by the same name is attributed to tbem by those who have no knowledge of their views. It wonld be just as consistant to make tbe Methodist Episcopal Church responsible for what some inferior sect by the name of Methodist might do, as to make them responsible for all of the fanaticism of other denominations by the name of Adveutists. Seventh Day Adveutists never have nor never will set the day or hour for Christ to come, beoause their close study of the Bible causes tbem to be the most out of sympathy with that idea of any denomination tbat exists; but they do believe from tbe fulfillment of numerous lines of prophesy that we are living in the closing scenes of earth's history and tbat Christ's coming ia near. It is indeed strange bow professedly Bible students will talk as many do that teaching tbe people with referenoe to the second oomiog of Christ causes them to become dismayed or insane. Paul says in 1 Thess, 4:18, concerning the Second coming of Christ, "Comfort one another with thess words." It is evident tbat when tbe language of tbe Apostle in Heb. 928 baa its application that only those who are looking for Christ to oome will be aaved for he says "unto tbem that look for Him will He appear the seoond time without sin unto salvation;" and in II Tim. 4:8 we* learn that only those who love His appearing will reoeive a orown of righteousness. Now in view of tbe above we have reason to doubt tbe sincerity of those who profess such unbounded love for Christ, and at the same time saoff at and deride the idea of tbe Lord's return, of wbioh doctrine tbe scripture?, botb in the old and in the new testaments, abound. We observe that those who are free iu reporting what they believe, etc., are those who are too prejudicial to read concerning tbeir views orlisten to what tbey have to say. Their representatives here hope in the near tutors to secure a place of euffiolent size to give the inhabitants of this place an opportunity to underBtaud what they believe and why they believe it.
