We announced a couple of \weeks ago \that to all new cash subscribers and re- newals to the RE-UNION, between that •date and the first of January nest, Ave \would seiid ''The Peoples Journal,\ an il- lustrated paper, published in Philadel- phia, Pa., free for on-e year. \ \We now re- peat tka + offer, and respectfully urge upon • our friends to send in their subscriptions at <\ice as the Journal is really a first clas^ : : terary and agricultural newspaper, of HWo'io pages, 4 columns to each page. It is filled with the choicest reading for hours of relaxation, and is richly worth •$3 a year itself, although the price is much less. Those who have already paid up, will receive their first number of the Journal about the beginning- of Decem- ber. And now a word or two to our adver- tising patrons. < v, i 'account of the large- ly increased circulation of the RE-UNION during the past year, it is more than ever sought for and selected by the business community as a medium for advertising. Its circi-uition is now ::i the neighborhood • of 1.000 copies, and is rajridly growing. Now, while we p- iit with pleasure and pride to these c<.',;;r.,r -. representing as they do nearly id! :•< ' <t class leading to\sett in the •sever:'.! '••• : '• >s of trade and commerce ia.

Turning Back a Page. It never does any harm to take a retro • spectivt glance at the pages of a nation's life Its epochs are many, often very in- structive, but ^not always it is true amus- ing. Turning back then to the campaign of 1808 ,we find that Grant went into the ch;iii by the sum total of 311 electo- ral votes, while Gov. Seymour had but 80. Texas (6,) Virginia (10,) Mississippi (7,) Florida (3) were not counted—by the Radicals. There should have been 317 .^electoral votes, but, the above states were \disloyal.\ and were counted—out. Had the electioa for President been : held Nov. 8, 1S70, the Democracy' would have been victorious, a very significant .fact, as showing how rapidly changes are brought about, and as evidence that the people are niisrepsesented to-day in the Affairs of the nation. The Democracy at the recent elections carried the following States. Alabama. California, Connecticut. Delaware, Florida. Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, 8 5 6 * •1 9 13 11 7 Total, Missouri, Nevada, New Tork, Worth Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, \West Virginia, 11 3 33 7 30 10 10 5 170 \ A 'jeompei'HWC© Hiror. \We* ot course, sympathise in the ab- stract with the object of temporanco so- cieties, but do decidedly object to their mode of reform, We do not know ex- actly h,ow many Good Templars lodges or other temperance organizations there may be in Jefferson county, but to them all we appeal to consider well what we are about to say. The cause of temperance won its greatest victories when the sin and danger of ram drinking were , most faithfully os- poSed, and the most deeply felt by the people. Now it is the custom of advo- cates of temperance to lay out their strength in denouncing the seller of rum., and the endeavor to prevent its sale by the enforcement of law. Practically speak- ing, the drinker is regarded as au inno- cent man, the victim of his own appe- tite, and of the craft, avarice and malig- nity of the rum-seller. The hotel or sa- loon keeper is represented as the black or yellow bloated, poisonous spider; the drinker is the poor, innocent, unsuspici- ous fly, goaded on by an irresistable in- stinct which his Creator, or some other power, has implanted within him. We have heard many temperance addresses within a few years, but have not been so fortunate as to hear one that exposed fearlessly the crime of getting drunk.— The intemperate man has been held up a victim of appetite, as a weak man, as a good, whole-souled fellow, liable to be led astray—wonderful geniuses have been re- ferred to, poets,statesmen, orators,and even clergymen, who have'suf-cumbed to the wily arts of the rum-seller—but the posi- tive guilt of swallowing -the poison has not once been sharply and powerfully por- trayed. Is this right ? Is the rum-seller any worse than other men who do business for money without regard to the moral effect of their occupation on the com- munity ? These hop-growers are good men; why not the rum-sellers ? They do not trouble themselves to look after con- sequences. They say : \It takes two to make a bargain. Nobody needs to buy unless he wishes to. If he buys he does it of his own free will and he is responsible for his own act.\ Many leading lights in the temperance movement in this county are hop growers. Why not pitch into them as well as the poor landlord, v. ho only disposes, in retail, of what others pro- duce ? We are not going to apologize particularly for the hotel keeping frater- nity, but one thing is pretty certain—if there wore no rum drinkers there would bo no rum sellers. Another thing is about as certain—so long as a large part of the people are not unwilling to drink, so long, in some way or other, they will be able to get liquor. The root ot the evil tree is not selling—it is not manufacturing—it ts drinking. Wm ADVERTISEMENTS THIS- WEEK Juat opened—R 1 P. & A- K. .Flower, STQW GoodSi Now Gopde-*E. Frooman.

A. H. HALL. «. W, MAlUCAItW., Umtlertmlser- Boards at American Hotel, Room No. 19. D=p=Residence of S. E. BALLARD, (as- sistant) No. 10 Goodale Street, Water- town, N. T. Coffin Room over No. 31 Public Square. Revival meetings are being hold at Cartilage. Coal has a downward tendancy? Let us rejoice. Every one of these States has given a Democratic majority at the latest elec- tion, and would give a Democratic ma- jority to-morrow. If there is anything in that table to make a Democrat feel \weak the Reformer will please point it out. We are coming Governor Hoffman 30.000 more—in New Tork in 1872. Tluuillsgi-vlng and Giving. There is an apparent tautology in using both words—Thanksgiving and Giving, but as the world goes there i-t a very plain distinction made between the two things, \Metaphorical gratitude is one of the cheap- est things the human heart ''\can exerciso, and there is altogether too much such benovolenco, Perhaps there is more Thanksgiving among professing Christ- ians than among what are phrased \ the people of the world,\ because they are more apt from habits of prayerfulness to confine then earnestness and their sym- pathy to mere offerings to the God of their Patliers.Poor Christians are apt to do considerable praying, and to leave the Griv- ing part of the performance to those who are distinguished as \ rich\ or \ well of,'- forgetting those who are •' poorer'' than themselves—forgetting that it is enjoined upon them to do the lest iliey can and no more, for each other. And this, because they are more apt to know who are really needy than their \better Dff \ neighbor. We would suggest that as the clergymen are continually applied to, and are drawn upon, by the poor for assistance, and that, when the people generally have no know- ledge of the terrible extent of human suff- ering by reason of poverty, the people of their respective churches see to it that their pastors receive, on Thanksgiving day, a supply both of money, and necess- aries of life (not perishable), to enable them to extend comfort to those whom they know to be in need-to enable them to be temporal benefactors, as well spiritual teachers. There is no problem a3 to reach- ing the poor- We know they are with us, and there is no lack of appointed means to aid us in the pe'rfotmance of our duty. The Daily Patriot is the name of the new Democratic paper at Washington. It is under the able editorial charge of James E. Harvey, former minister to Por- tugal. The party required an outspoken journal at the Federal capital to beard corruption and republicanism in its den. A member of the Cabinet is reported to hare said that a majority of that \ta- ble round\ are in favor of a modification of the high-tariff laws, but not willing to make it a political issue. When the devil was sick, the devil a tnonk would be.— The high-tariff men are getting badly scared at the revenue reform movement. Freight business at the R. W. & O. R.R' is rapidly on the increase. Already the Christmas toys are liberally exhibited in the shop windows. They have captured a thirty pound musealonge at the mouth of Sandy Creek. At Flower's you will find a nice assort- ment of the new style of opera chains. An attempt to rob Hubbard's Hotel in Clayton, last week was frustrated by the awakening of the bar-tender. Roman Pearl, Coraline and Turkish Necklaces, a fine lot, cheap, at Flower's jewelry store. We call attention to .the advertisemen of the N. Y. Methrdist in another column. It is one of the best religious and family papers in the country. The Board of Health of Mobile has de- clared the epidemic of yellow fever at an end, aud that it is now safe for absentees to return. The war in Cuba drags slowly along. InSantioga the rebels recently ainbus- • carted a detachment of Spanish soldiers. The Spanish residents hi the country have beftn compelled to take refuge in Santi- ago- City. Ten skirmishes are reported in .-the Central Department. The investigator of the Tien-tsin mas- sacre has been arrested, and the Chinese government promises speedy justice. The Shanghai News Letter complains of the gross neglect and wanton disregard of du- ty shown by Mr. Low, the American Min- ister. The editor of the Adams Juurnal hints that a present of a Thanksgiving turkey from any one of his subscribers would not be refused. Cool, even for this season. The Empire State Life Insurance com- pany, at Watertown, is securing policies at the rate of 300 a month. This speaks volumes in praise of its features and man- agement. Book canvassers may not be aware of the fact that a five cent revenue stamp is required to be attached to every signa- ture in their books; the agreement to pur- chase being considered a contract. This is Thanksgiving day. Let the whole people rejoice at the peaceful state of our beloved country, aud render homage to the Giver of all good for his manifold gifts and blessings to each of us. V The Watertown League of Friendship, S. M. O. S., will giveau anniversary ball in Washington Hall, Thursday evening, November 34th. Horth's full band- will furnish music. Tickets $1.00. A pleas- ant affair may be anticipated. Supper will be served at the Jackman House. The Po.it editor goes into extacies over the pancake season. His assault up- on batter is touching. Buckwheat, in his eyes,hasjLts victories no less renowned than rye. While Grant cries \let us have peas, - ' the Post man'goes for the other cereal. As a slap jakist, brother Bragdon is a success. Let him bake! The Danish envoy has succeeded in negotiating with the government of s \Jap- an for the completion of telegraphic com- munication between Japaa and_Europe, The ccusus taker.-. <il ihls tounty :;u:t.t have had their own senses taken before they began enumerating, or they would have found we had a larger population than they have accredited us with, We don't believe for a moment that the county has increased jiexactly two inhab- itants since 1805 ; do you ? But little commendation is neeclad to the admirable manner in which the Early House is kept under the new proprietors, Jackman & Peck, as both are well known throughout this section as skillful cater- ers and thoroughly posted in their busi- ness. The former, as all are\ aware, has kept many hotels here and elsewhere, and always to the satisfaction of his guests,— The house has been renovated^ in every respect, and will hold its place, asljfc dc- serves,'SS one of the best in this section. They have some fancy goods at Flower's jewelry store that came Oitt of Paris Sept. 3d. Call and see them. The official' canvass places Governor Hoffman's majority at 38,7-61.. The nia* jority against the funding bill is 167,467. The Ilernrlon Opera House Company played hero throe nights last week to very good houses. They have gone to Gouv- erneur an d Ogdensburg.' The Franklin (Malone, N. Y.) Gazette has been recently enlarged and greatly improved. It is now a fine, large weekly, and a paper of which the Democracy of Franklin county may well feel proud. The Carthage fiepitMiccm is disgusted because Merriam ran behind so in Water- town, Who said he wouldn't ? The Re- publican ought to know that this city is discriminating and democratic^ andvototh not for nincompoops. We direct attention to the advertise- ment of Messrs. Gillick & Hotis' Quad- rille Band. During the winter evenings, when the merry dance season is at its height, our fan loving readers must en- joy themselves, and to help them do it properly and scientifically, Gillick & Ho- tis' band is the very thing desired. Ladies, attention 1 form fours, or as many as you like,, and proceed in a direct line to R. Freeman's,. Court street, and view Ms new goods. They are fresh, styl- ish and reasonable in price. His new stock is now freely opeued out, and the goods are all the liveliest fancy can paint theni. BAPTIST OHUKCH.—Thanksgiving ser- vices, The pastor, Rev. Mr. Haynes, will preach in the evening at 7£ o'clock. The public generally are invited to attend. The subject of the discourse will be, \Our Country, its danger and its, safety.\ No service jn the forenoon. TAX OFF.—It is not generally known, we believe, that the tax on auctioneers ceased on the 1st of October, 1870. This will be an item of interest to those hold- ing public sales of personal property, who- have heretofore been obliged to pay a cer- tain per centage on the amount sold by the auctioneer, who made the return to- the assistant assessors. AMERICAN SUNDAY-SCHOOL WORKER.— The November number 6f this journal, published by J. W. Mclntyre, St. Louis, besides its usual valuable contents, has very full announcements of its plans and reduced terms, with fist of lessons for 1871. As the publisher offers to send this number free of charge, we advise Sun- day-schools adopting a series oflessons for next year to send for a specimen copy. The Y. M. C. A. of Watertown are not idle. They have secured the Boston Quin- tette club, which is one of the finest mu- sical organizations traveling. Due notice of the time of their coming will be giv- en. Anna Dickenson has also been en- gaged by them to lecture here once this winter. The great traveler and natural historian, Paul Du Chailu, is likewise an- nounced. A rich treat from him may be expected. WHAT TO W EAR AND How TO MAKE IT. —Mrne. Hemorest's Manual of Instructions on Dress aud Dress-Making tor the Fall and Winter Fashions of 1870-71. This book ought to be in the hands of every mother, lady, aud dress-maker is the land, as it \ives complete, valuable and useful ' information in every department of la- dies' and childrens dress, with- numerous illustrations. Price 15 cts. Mailed free on receipt of price. Address Mme. De- morest, 838 Broadway, New York. - MOORE'S RURAL NEW YORKER is second to no Agricultural paper published in America, aud in many of its departments excels all competitors. To the farmer, especially, it is a most invaluable compan- ion and counsellor, furnishing interesting, instructive and reliable information on all matters relating to the Farm and Garden' Stock Raising, the Dairy and the House- hold. Its pages are regularly beautified witn engravings of a superior kind, and the general appearance of the Ruial is quite equal to its pretensions of being the \Napoleon of its Class.\ CHAPPED HANDS.--The season for cap- ped hands is fast approaching. The easi- est and simplest remedy is found in every storeroom. Take common starch and grind with a knife until it is reduced to the smoothest powder. Take a tin box and fill it with starch thus prepared, so as to have it continually at hand for use Then every time that the hands are taken from the suds, or dish-water rinse them thoroughly in clear water, wipe chom, ai'.i! while ihey are yet. dam;), rub a piiiLli of theUarch thoroughly over them, covering the whole surface. The effect is magical. WEDDING AND Flower's jewelry storo. ENGAGEMENT rings at Wo were really surprised the other day on 4 visiting the new premises of Messrs. Q-. W. Lawrence & Co., on Court street, to find so rich and varied an assortment of furniture as they new have on hand. Nothing in Watertown over cam'euptoit either in extent or beauty Ol design and finish. Our citizens who have heretofore been in the habit of pur- chasing their best furnishing goods and furniturj in New Yoik and Boston, will here find everything they desire m the way of style and price without talcing their money from our midst to iit u x . with, A. visit to this establishment will convince our readers of the truth of what we 'say. Tea sets,, castors, Avater pitchers, fend a great yariety of cake baskets, cheaper than eyeyat Flower's jewelry store, No. 1, Court street, A seyere 'Winter is predicted beoausc the autumn fleeces of the sheep and lambs are found to be unusually close and heavy. Theii\0wners should shear the animals, and thus prevent the severe Winter. Ohva Rands' celebrated troupe of opera burlesque actors and actresses will appear on Friday night next, at Washington Hall. Of course everybody will go. They are superb, immense, exquisite. Full of fun and side-splitting farces. JOSH BILLINKS,—About the first of next month Watertown- is to have a preliminary shake, prior to the visitation of the great earthquake prophesied for the 33nd. It will be a convulsion with laughter, for Josh Billings is to visit us, and give us an intellectual treat in one of his inimitable lectures. We are pleased to notice that our young and talented friend Joseph Mullin, Jr. was admitted at Syracuse last week to the bar, to practice law in the courts of this State. We wish Mr Mullin all the success he may desire in the profession! which has been so honorably represented by his father, Judge Mullin. CLAIRVOYANT EXAMINATIONS FREE.— Dr. Butterfield has been making month- ly visits to Watertown for the last year, prescribing for the affiioted. Believing or not in the theory of Clairvoyance, the Doctor's wide and extensive experience and medical education render him invaria- bly succes.-m< in the cure of Chronic Dis- eases. Wiu be i •: the Woodruff House, Watertown, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 6th, 7th and 8th. s34w3' The Assembly is almost or quite a tie as between the two parties. Republicans claim one majoriDy and Democrats one or two.— Post. We should like our cotemporary to ex- plain how, out of a house of 138 mem- bers, he can-make one of a majority on either side. If not a tie, there must be a majority of two or mere for either party. This time the Democrats have the inside track. We have this week gone over our en- tire subscription list and carefully cor- rected it, and we shall feel under obliga- tions to postmasters and subscribers if they will regularly notify us of any change of residence of persons taking the RE- UNION, as well as of wrong addresses on papers, that we may have all such prompt- ly corrected, and that there may be no dissatisfaction on this score henceforward. A little care on the part of each of us will result mutually in good, and will silence altogether any future grumbling about the non-arrival of the RE-UNION at any Post Office. Now, let us see if we cannot keep this matter in good shape. WHISKY AND NEWSPAPERS.—A glass of whiskey is manufactured from a dozen grains of corn, the value of which is too small for estimation. A glass of this mix- ture sells for one dime, and if a good brand, is considered well worth the mon- ey. It fires the brain, sharpens the a]ipe- tite, deranges and weakens the physical system. On the sideboard on which the delicious beverage is served lies a news- paper. It is covered with half a million types. It brings intelligence from the four great quarters of the globe. The newspa- paper costs less than a glass of grog, the juice of a few grains of corn, but it is no less true that there is a large number of people who think corn juice cheap, and newspapers dear. INSTJUAHCE AGENCY.—John B-. Powell, general agent for the Phcenix Mutual Life Insurance Company of Hartford, we learn, has arranged with D. W. Bartle't. Esq.,, late of the Empire State, to become superintendent of agencies for that com- pany, and has entered upon his duties as such. Mr. B. having been formerly con- nected with the PhceniXjhis services seem to be well appreciated—hence the re-engage- ment. We are sorry to part with. Mr. P., as he has ever been an agreeable, prompt and successful business man whilst as a citizen of Watertown, and his many warm friends here will regret his departure.— We wish him success. Mr. C, H. Webster of our city, we also learn,, has has taken an agency in the State of Connecticut for the Phcanix, and has entered upon his duties there. Mr. W. is a successful agent, with long ex- perience in the business; success to him also. A GRAND ENTERPRISE.—Messrs. Lyman Doolittlo and R. H. Hall, having recent- ly come into]posses3ion r bypurchase,of the vacant lot. a few yards below the v\ > - rutf House, on Public square, they will immediately proceed to the erection of a splendid Opera house, to contain all the modern features and improvements of a first-class commodious place of amuse- ment. The let is 80 x 100 feet, and is, of course, of sufficient extent to hold a mag- nificent pile of buildings, and make the Opera hall commodious and of convenient arrangement. Eeneath the hall will be four fine stores) which will be fitted up in good style, and being in a first rate locali- ty for business, will rent reaildy at good rates. The gentlemen, who are evincing so much public spirit and true enterprise, in taking hold of the matter, intend con- tracting at once for the building material, which will be promptly placed Upon the ground ready for the workmen to com- mence operations. The building, it is in- tended, will be finished next fall. EPISCOPAL. SERVICUS,—Saekets Harbor •services in ; Clir.ist Church on Sunday nest, Nov, 3.7th,at 10| o'clock A. M., by the Rev.

Mun- dy & Son have recently made extensive alterations and improvements in their es- tablishment, which deserve special men- tion, The liquor department has been removed upstairs to the second floor, and for the convenience of customers may be reached by the stairway, inioiiediately, east of the store, leading to the commercial'ool- lego rooms, and to Messrs. Moore & Me Cartin's law offices. On reaching the top of these stairs, a door on tho left hand side; upon which are printed the wcrds \Liquor Room,\ informs the intending customer where he may procure the chois- est samples of ales, wines or liquors of any brand or age. This firm have also greatly extended their grocery business, and while they will hereafter do a lager wholesale trade than formerly,, they will keep on hand for retailing as fresh and select a stock of family groceries as can be procured at any similar establishment in the State. Their stock of foreign and do- mestic wines and brandies is of thefpnr- est quality, and is especially rocoraniend- edfor medicinal and family purposes.— Connoisseurs will be delighted with the articles in this line kept by these gen- tleman.

LA RUE'S MINSTRELS.—This favorite company of burnt cork artists will visit Watertown on Tuesday next, the 39th inst. It has lost none of its original ex- celencies, but has ever and always im- proved, as any company must under the capital management of our old friend, D. O La Rue. Hear what the Rochester Ex- press says of them -.-\The fact that this cel- ebrated troupe appeared in Corinthian Hall last night after a cessation of the minstrel business in this city for a short time and that a liberal use of printers' ink was made was enough to insure a crowded house, as our people seem to never weary of this style ol entertainment, the seats beiu* all filled and the stools having to be brought into use.
