Edltoiflal Correspondence.
PJd£A2>XL»Bta, April 23,1856.
Wc nwiyed ;bere about 121 o’clock on
last Tuesday evening, and in .accordance
with our usual custom, directed onr steps
to the “States Union Hotel,” on Market
street, above Sixth, and put ourself under
the care of its popular proprietor, George
W. Hinkle,'Esq. After a refreahingmghtV
rest, we stowed away a hearty break
fast in our “ bread-basket,” and then went
“bobbin’ around to see the “sights.”—-
We called around on several of our old
friends, and found thorn not only looking
wolf, but also prospering better than the
hard times, justified. Among the rest wc
colled 'op our correspondent, “Sigma,”
and found him none the worse for his liter*
aty efforts for the Tribune. He is a clever,
agreeable young fellow, and is well posted
up in everything pertaining to the city
and city life. After agreeably spending
the forenoon- among our old friends, we
retultned to oar quarters, and partook of a
sumptuous dinner, after which we wended
' our eteps towards Musical Fund Hall, to
meet our brethren of the Quill and Scis
sors in council. ~ We found, on arriving
there,\ however, that the convention
taken but a short session, and had ad
journed till 8} o’clock.
Determined to be on hands at that time,
we paid good heed to the chronicle of old
father Time, which luxuriated in our
breeches pocket, and punctual to the hour
presented ourself at the Hall, and Was
duly admitted to the council chamber,
where was .convened the assembled wis
dom of Pennsylvania. On entering, we
found Mr, R. Lyle White, of the Erie
Constitution, in the chair, and Messrs. L.
H. Davis, of the Montgomery Ledger, and
M- H. Cobbj of the Tioga Agitator, act
ing as Secretaries. The following dele

At the morning sesjsion a committee bad
been appointed to report business for the
Association. At the afternoon session two
reports were handed in. The majority
reported in fcvorof adjourning to meet at
Fot&ville, on the 11th of May, in con-
with the Keystone Editorial As-
a new organi»atmn,-aa a State
Sqeigty. The reported in favor

After considerable debate, jpro and con,
by of the Association, on

at the “ Festival” in the evening,

"We then took a short stroll down town
tofacer the Firemen’s Parade, which was
i ppp largest one we ever saw. Some forty

rival tho Association was called to order,
to..bear and act on the report of -the com
mittee. , The following was the report;
Whereat, When the Convention, assembled it
Was found that there existed two organizations
-—each claiming to be a State organization, one
called the Keystone Editorial Union,-and the
other the Editorial Association of Pennsylvania
—therefore it is deemed best to merge both or
ganizations into one, and to invite co-operation
from all. the fraternity in Pennsylvania for the
purpose: therefore,
Rcrolved, That the name of this organization
shall bo the Pennsylvania Editorial Union.
>•*. Its officers shall consist of a President,
eight .Vice Presidents, a Treasurer, five Secre
taries, andnne Corresponding Secretary.
Bd. There shall be an executive committee of
five, to which shall be referred all details of or
ganization, which committee shall be appointed
by the chair.
4th. The first annual meeting of the Union
shall be held on the third Wednesday in Jnne,
1868, in the city of Philadelphia, and that the
corresponding secretary be directed to give no
tice of said meeting to every editor in the State.
We suggest the following persons as the offi
cers to be elected:
President—Morton McMichaeL
Vico Presidents—Levi L. Tate, John J. Pat
terson, R. Lyle White, Joseph P. Barr, P. R.
Frens, H. S. Evans, 0. N. Worden, Edward
Treasurer—Louis A. Godoy.
.' Secretaries—J. Henry Puleston, J. M. Kues
itor. Geo. Raymond, J. s H. Davis.
| Corresponding Secretary—£. J. Peterson.
1 executive Committee—Col. John W. Fomcy,
J. Lawrence Getz, £. <H. Rauch, J. Heron Fos
ter, and Dr. H. B. Brower.
On motion, the report of the committee
was unanimously received and adopted.—
The Association then adjoujrned to the
“ Festival” Chamber. But jat this stage
of the proceedings (the most interesting
of the whole,) we are compelled to pause,
lest we may notdo them full justice. * *
Well, w.c have considered the matter
over, and concluded not to attempt such a
superhuman task, as failure alone would
reward our .efforts. We shall, therefore,
content ourself by merely stating that the
banquet was a most sumptuous one and
reflected the highest credit bn .the mem
bers of the city Press, by whom it v was
got up. After the cloth was removed,
speeches were made by the President, Mor
ton McMichael, Esq., Dr. R. Shelton
McKenzie, L. A. Godey, Esq., Col. Fitz
.gerald, and a number of others. It was
emphatically a “ feast of reason and flow
of soul:” Wit and humor abounded, the
former as keen and sparkling as the cham
paigne, (almost forgot the “Heidsic,” al
though we didn’t that evening.) At about
Hi o’clock the “Festival” 'was brought
-to a close, and the delegates retired to
their respective quarters, in the best of
humor with themselves and the whole
company, and determined to be present at
the nextsessionof the Association in June,
ready and willing to lend their efforts to
make the “Old Keystone” what she ought
to have been long since, the first Common
wealth in the Union.
Since then little of any interest has
transpired. Everybody here is cursing
the action of Mr. English, in regard to.
Kansas affairs. His political reputation
is dead.
Politics arc now nearly up to p fever
heat, the city tickets being the grand
theme of conversation. From the indica
tions manifested, we believe the “ Peoples’
Ticket” will be triumphantly elected. —
Mayor Yam, Bill McMulliu, and their
compeers, will have to take a back seat,
unless they can succeed by ballot-box stuf
fing, which, judging from their reputa
tions, they will no- doubt attempt on a
most extensive scald
Last evening, in company with “ mine
host’.’ oif|b'e “ States 1 Union,” Mr. Jacob
Sziut, or Altoona, and Mr. Stevenson, of
Mifflin, we visited Shawnee Tribe, No. 8,
I. O|R. M., at its Wigwam, corner of 4th
and ijfalnut, and spent the evening in a
pleasant manner. The Shawnee boys know
how to put a pale face through, and how
to treat friends and brothers. Talking of
Red Men, we are reminded that the order
is in a most flourishing condition, and is
rapidly extending. It is a good order and
cannot be extended, too widely.
To-day we visited the Navy Yard, and
took a ,view of matters and things there.

Shocking order. —On Thursday
last, the body of; a young man was found.!
floating in the Schuylkill, a short distance
abbve the Market Street Bridge, Phila
delphia. On reifiioving it from the water
it was found to he the body of Mr. John
E. Clark, a young merchant in Philadel
phia, who- had been missing since the pre
vious Saturday, on which day he had had
some 8400 on his person, with which he'
purposed lifting ;a couple of notes in bank.
On examining ; the body the throat was
found to bp cut from ear to ■ ear. The
Watch of deceased was in his vest pocket,
but the chain bad been cut. Little or no
money was foubd upon his person. The
Coroner, with a jury, is now busily en
gaged taking testimony, and will leave no
means unspared, to ferret out the perpe
trator or perpetrators of this hellish crime.
That the deceased was, foully murdered no
one doubts, although at first it was sup
posed that he blight have committed sui
cide. He leaves a young widow to mourn
his Untimely fate, who together with his
aged mother are well nigh distracted. We
hope that justicp, in this case, will neither
slumber nor slepp.
The Atlantic Monthly. —The May
number of this interesting and popular
monthly is already on our table. It con

reading matter, jwhich is designed not only
to instruct, bujt also to amuse. It is a

State, relative to the slave trade, called

Cass discourses with much force, and with
the slightest gpice of ridicule, the new
scheme of forced labor called apprentice

French Government, and recognized by
the British Government. In conclusion,
he says ; “I ain instructed by the Presi

he is deterniined to execute the treaty of
1842 with fidelity and efficiency, he is not
prepared, under existing circumstances, to

Messrs. Editoes:— The weather appears to
be an all-absorbing topic of conversation. The
damage it is likely to give the fruit, already in
blossom, excites the alarm of many. Its singu
larity at this season of the year elicits expres
sions of surprise. He who “ doeth all things
well,” and who rales on the earth by regulating
the weather, .will however, bring all things to
their growth and development, if it appears
good to Him and for thogood of His creatures.
Depending upon Him,, we may expect the sea

iady bbjected to the marriage, in consequence
of which if was arranged between the layers
that Schmidt should first shoot the young lady
and then himself. He executed his design so
