We pftblishcil on our outside tlie rc
suft fif the munict(mt election iu l'itts
ofityh, hold n week ago last Tuesday.
Various comment have been elicited
by the election of Black more, who is
n well, that' mora than we know
t Democrat at times. The JW, the
city Democratic daily, labors to effect
the impression that it is a victory for
iU party exclusive of the Labor Re
form or any other organization, and as
such parades the falsehood before its ad
miring readers. Of course) the brood
ever ready for acackle will catch up the
refrain and ring it through the rural
districts as evidence of the reaction
working in opposition to Republican
ism. AVe have plain statements and
we tru3t common sense enough to draw
plain conclusions relative to this. It
is tho rebuke of their leaders that
Pittsburg Republicans aimed at, tho
dchonncingof thecliqucthat heretofore
pulled wires and drew checks to suit
themselves, the regular nominations
in the ea3c of the Mayor and Treasur
cr worcdistastful to the bulk of Re
publican voters ami their purpose was
to annul the nomination by defeating
them. , lo do this retmireil force from
each party opposing, and securing n
favorable candidate and happy co-oper
ation they succeeded, and so iitr as
we ore concerned we arc glad of it. The
Republicans do not claim a victory,
but they claim the salutary effect of a
ueiearea "ring," una more proper
observance hereafter of popular feel
ing. The Republic, Johnsonian, has
it that "so far as Mr. Blaekmore's elec
tion could bo claimed as having any
bearing outside of issues originating in
tho Radical Convention, it is certainly
an indorsement of the President. Mr.
Blackmore was Secretary of the first
Johnson Club which ever met iu this
city, and it is well known that ho ful
ly indorses the President and deprecates
thcassaultsuponhini, either by Repub
licans or D:noerats."
And the 'or':hign-i Jdrornte, the
Labor R'foiv.i org!, declares "the as
sertion that the result of our munici
pil election lost Tuesday wasa"D2m-o-ntic
victory," is a irilf aland flagrant
falsehood I If tho successful candi
dates for Mayor and Treasurer had
run as "Denmsratie" car.-Hdates, they
would have boon .lcfoato'l bv an

elected by the Labor Reform party,
assisted by Democrats, and Republic
ans alike , and could not have been
elected otherwise. Tho attempt '.to
construe the result achieved into a
"Democratic" partisan triumph is as
disgusting as it is villianous, and we
say this in behalf of the Labor Re
form party, and all who, without re
gard to old party tics, co-operated with
it in the elections."
To all of which the Pout replies by
avmring thorn that neither party wvigh
e l aught against the Democratic ba'-j
lot. Tho question then is, w;is it a
Democratic, tabor Reform, or John
son victory? Or a success of the peo
ple over Do! itical "rings ?"

F. Clawson, who was tried last week
for stealing cows, but about whoso ease
tho jury failed to agree. Tho Wash-,
iugton Jiejorter says: They were oc
cupying separate cells iu tho female
department, nnd Whittaker, by means
of a saw which ho somehow got posses
sion of, succeeded in cutting off one of
the iron bars constituting part of .his
cell, and having got out, by aid of one
slats of his bends lead a stout piceo of
oak broke tiie lock ot the door ot the
cell in which Clawson, was confined and
let him out also. From the area out
side of the cells they gained easy access
to the skylight, by means ot the scat
folding used for plastering, which had
not yet been taken down. Knocking
out one of the lights of glass they got
out upon the rout", whence they made
their desont to the ground by a milder
which had been left standing outside.
The following is a verbatim copy of
a note addressed by Whittaker to his
Honor, the President Judge, and leu
in his cell.
To the Hon Judge Aehesont
Dear Sir 1 have gone to Pitts
burgh to hunt up six thousand bail ;if

There was also picked up in the
same cell the following note addressed
to Whittaker by Arnold, who had
evidently been solicited by the former
to make his escape at the same time:
No, Tom, I will not go. I know
it is as easy as you say it is. I can get
out of here anytime I want to in two
hours. If you are going to go, I don't
want you to break my lock, there will
be no use iu taking mv lock off, for
by I won't go, nnd there is no use
asking me any inure. If I was afraid
of n trial I would go, but I am inno

think that you are guilty if you go.
Of course if I am awaked at tho time
you leave. I will not interfere with

As nl rcadv stated, it is evident that
this was written to hittaker 111 re

should join him in his escape.

Monti-emeu, December 11. One
of the most fearful accidents known in
the annals of Vermont transpired to
day nt Harlow Bridge, near Xorthfiehl,
on the Vermont Central Railroad.
The bridge was burned Sunday morn
ing, and during tho week about one
hundred men were engaged in rearing
trestle work for temporary use. Most
of tho employers having dined to-day
at Northfield, were returning to work,
about one and a liall miles from that
town, in a passenger car, which was
being backed up to tho works. By
some inconceivable forget fulness, the
engineer proceeded with them at a
rapid rale, and did not cheek his speed
until too late, and the whole car, with
its freight of from sevoniv to one hun
dred men, was backed off the abutment
into tha river below, a distance of sixty
feet, the tender to the engine following.
Fifteen men were killed instantly, three
or four have since died, and more than
a many others injured, many seriously,
some it is feared fatally.
