Aldrioh then gave notice that at half past five he would move for a recess till 8 o'clock this evening.

Sherman made a speech in general defence of the principle of protection, riSbOCK will vote aoaisst it. Paddock made a lengthy speech in which he said he wonld, though a Republican, vote against tbe bill, which he said did not benefit the people of the United States. His chief reason for bo voting that tbe infant industry of beet sugar production in his State (Nebraska], was sacrificed, while tbo manufacturers of tin plate, ateel rails, structural iron, cutlery, wooden and cotton goods, were*amply protected.

Great Improvements In the Fnbllc Thoroughfares-The Oldest PoMtijiAe'vr of the Town-An Industrious, Prosperous and Oeftervina* Pobllaher-The tiaiultle Hoo.se -The Oldest BeSldent, ISpeclal Correspondence j Jersey Shore, Sept. 20.-This town has made rapid improvement since the opening of tbe Fall Brook and Beech Croek RailroadB, and it now presents much neater and business-like appearanoe than it did a few years ago. The population shows an inarease of nearly 32 per cent, in the last ten years, tbe reoontoouct making the number of inhabitants 1,858 and as tha "Junction," as it is called, has just been annexed by a decree of tbe conrt, 450 more are added, making the total population 2,308. Bad the annexation taken place tbree months earlier tho borough would have been credited with this nninbor, Instead of 1,853. Supervisor Brioker recently made application to tbe Superintendent of the census to have a recount made, so that tbe borough would be credited with the true population, but it is not known whether he will grant it or not. He may not do it, because it would be establishing a precedent that might give rise to future trouble, although popular sentiment might demand that it should be done. The population ia given as it was found when the enumeration was made; and yet it seems nnfair that tbe borough should be oompelled to wait ten years to have tbe oorreot number of its inhabitants proclaimed, notwithstanding the official announcement of its population has not yet been made. Great improvements to the streets are being made under the present administration of Burgess Kline. A stone crusher has been set up and sufficient stone is be-ing broken to oovor the principal streets. It is thought that this movement will result In making roadbeds that will be a pleasure instead of an abomination. Allegheny street, leading to the Fall Brook and Beech Creek Railroad station, bas been known to be almost bottomless in tbe early spring, but as It is now oovered with a heavy coating of broken stone, it is expected that tbe 'busses and carriages can pass over it next spring without being In danger of being engulfed. The main street in the oentral part of tbo town, baB been treated in the same way,'and the prospects are that it will soon bo an excellent thoroughfare. Tho borough authorities are to be commended for their enterprise in this respect, for if there is anything that adds to tlie comfort and attractiveness of a town, and callB forth the praise and admiration of strangers, it is well paved streets. The oldest ex-postmaster of the borough now living hero is Col. James S. Allen. It is true that Samnel Maffet served in that Rapacity from October 1845 to December 1847, but hs is not now a resident of tho borough. Col. Allen was appointed December 30, 1847, and held tbe office a short time when he was succeeded by his brother, Samuel 6. Allen. Tbe Colonel, although more than 76 years old, is still active enough to serve a full term In these modern days. Among those who served the longest terms sinoe tho establishment of the othoe in 180G, may be mentioned Capt. Potter and Thomas Calvert. The former held the office about eleven, aud the latter about seven years. The present postmaster, Charles H. Pott, was appointed by President Cleveland December 21, 1SS". Ilia commission, therefore will not expire until December, 1891. Ouo of tbe finest and best tilled farms near tho borough, is owned by William M. Boar, son of Dr. Bear, a well known and highly respected citizen. It contains about: 100 acres and lies on tbo highway leading to Pino Creek. Tho farm residence, tho barn and outbuildings, are convenient and capacious, and models of neatness. Mr. Bear devotcB close attention to tbo rearing of fine horses, and he bas been quite successful in this rtBpeot. Ho also owns fino herds of Jersey and Alderney cows. His choice stock attracts much attention and he is tbo recipient of many compliments from those who lovo to Icok upon due horeea aud cattle. lie is the uwnor of a very flue and fast driving horac, which in addition to its beauty and speed, is noted for its gentleness and intelligence. It is very valuable, aud is claimed to be, the best in the oounty. Mr. Bear is iu evory respect a model young man, and ou account of his cxcelleut qualities, gentlemanly deportment, sobriety aud industry, commands the respeot and esteom of a large circle of friends. It is gratifying to note that a better day seems to bo dawning for young newspaper publishers, fur instead of beiog kept iu the back ground, as in former years, tbey arc rapidly coming to tho front and taking their positions as representative men as well as moulders of public sentiment. Charles B. Seely, editor and publisher of tho Jersey Shore Herald, is one of tbo Democratic nominees for tbe Legislator in this county. As a young man be bas displayed wonderful aotivity, industry and tenaoity of purpose in bis business. H entered bis father's printing office at th early age of twelve years, learned the trade, and has followed it to the present time. At tbe age of sixteen he was foreman, and at eighteen he assisted in the local department. As his father, CdI. &. S. Soely, waa one of the neatest and best printers of hia day and generation, it nat orally followed that his son was learned tho trade thoroughly and well. On thi death of his father in 1879, he became sole owner of the office and paper, and bas sue cessfully conducted it to tbe present time, Under his management tbe circulation of the Herald has more than doubled, and it has steadily increased in value and use fulness. As Mr. Seely ib 3G years of age, he is just approaobing the prime and vigor of manhood, aud a bright aud promising future lies before him. He has always been noted for aotivity, industry and fidelity to his party, and the esteem which he is held is attested by the tact that bo was nominated on the first ballot by a practically unanimous vote. Tho compliment was a handsome one, but it waB as deserved as it was gracf nl. The Gamble House, situated In the centre of tho town, is very successfully conducted by David A. Cochran, and it is a favorite place of resort for travelers and visitors. Mr. Cochran is well known in Clinton eounty, having resided for a number of years at Pine, where he kept a pub-lio house. This popular hostelry is earned after the Hon. John A. Gamble, wbo lived and died in this town. He was noted politician and a shrewd and sagacious business man. As early as 1835 he beoanie a member of tbe Legislature and served until 1838. Iu 1849 be was chosen a canal commissioner, when it was tbe cub torn to elect three such officors to look after the canal, when those public icn provemeuts were owned by the State. And it was during his administration that this great water way was sold to tbe Peatsyl-vania Railroad Company. Mr. Gamble died February 7, 1878, in tbe 79th year of his age. He wsb long one of Lycoming county's ablest politicians, and it is fitting that bis name should be perpetuated by the elegant hotel now owned by Mr. Cochran, who Is also a native of this county. James Davidson, whose grandfather was a distinguished Revolutionary surgeon, may always bo found in the office to welcome guests and make them feel that they are among friends, lie rarely goes more tban ten feet from the register and always smiles when it rapidly fills up with well written signatures. Mr. Davidson enjoys the distinction of being a member, by inheritance of the famous Society of tho Cincinnati, which was organized by the officers who participated in tho great Btrugglefot liberty, and be holds tbe certificate of membership wblcb belonged to bis ancestor, Dr. James Davidson. AN OPERATOfi'S BAD BLUNDER Ho Forgets His Orders aud His Neglect Results Disastrously. Reference to a curious old Gazetteer of Pennsylvania, published in 1833 by Thomas F. Gordon, shows that JorBey Shore at that dale contained '.'between 500 and 000 inbabitants and 102 tlxables; about 100 dwellings, six stores, five taverns, and a Mothodist Church. It was incorporated by Act of Assembly 15th Marob, 1820." This quotation is made to show the progress that bas been made in fifty-eight years, and tho reader can make bis own comparison. One of the oldest, if not tho very oldest resident of tho borough, is Frauds T. Carpenter. He is well along In his 89tb year, but ho enjoys fair health, delights lo converse with friends about tbe progress this country has madu during his life time, and notes tbo wonderful advances in education, scieuoo and refine, meut wbioh ho has wituessod. This venerable man is kindly cared for by his talented and greatly respected daughters at their homo on Allegheny street, and as tho twilight of life gradually settles upon his bead, bo is cheered and consoled by tbo consciousness of the greatest filial devotion thus shown him, and ho is ready nt any moment to obey the final summons aud enter triumphantly into tbo future ifo. WSE0K 08 THE JERSEY 0EHTEAL A Coal Train Periniuod to Pass a Station Where It Should Uevo lluon Stoppml-It Is Dashed Into by a Fauenxer Train, ana Three Lives are Crashed Oat aud Several Persons Serloutlj Wounded.

Tbe steam saw mill of Weed & Allen, at Williamsport, was burned at an early hour this morning. The mill was situated along the river east of the Philadelphia & Erie railroad bridge.
