The Tyrone Star, of this week, calls the
Tribune a Republican paper, and says wo devo
ted two columns of our last issue to the defence
of Carl Schurz. Now we did not devote any space
to the defence of the gentleman named, because
he needs none, but we did devote considerable
space to the defence of truth, and thereby place
the editor of the Star in such an odious position
before the honorable men of all parties that, in
order to screen himself and weaken the force of
our remarks, he must needs make a cry against
us, and forthwith call the Tribune a Republican
paper. Tho editor of the Star admits that the
obnoxious extract of the speech which he pub
lished, is the only part of it he ever seen. This
is unfoitunatc for him. ■ It shows that he was
afraid to read the whole of it and learn the
truth, because he knew that Carl Schurz never
uttered the sentiments attributed to him, and if
he had read the whole speech he would not have
had the conscience to mnltilate it as he did.—
Rut he says again that if any report is a garbled
one most likely the one we published. The
extracts we published were taken from the
speech in pamphlet form, wuile he admits he
never seen the speech, consequently took it from
an exchange. We leave the public to decide
which is most likely to be garbled.
Thfc Slur would, we know, like to draw us
into a political controversy for a special reason,
one which is unworthy of any gentleman, and
which has been manifested towards several gen
tlemen in this place besides ourselves. Rut
Mr. Jolly can not make his point with us. We
stand just where we have always done—inde
pendent of all parties—but we are not afraid to
contradict falsehoods whether found in the Ty
rone Star or elsewhere; and there is no use in
the editor of the Star trying to injure us or our
paper because we expose the disreputable polit
ical tricks to which he stoops. His object is
known and detested, therefore his attempt to
class the Tribune as a Republican paper, falls
harmless to the ground.
Particulars of Walked, 1 8 Capture. —lt ap
pears, from intelligence brought by the Empire
City, that Walker and his men were captured
on tho lid Inst. The name of his second in com
mand, who has been condemned to share his
fate, is Iluttlcr. Most of the men are said to
have been in a deplorable condition when the
boats of the Icarus made their appearance.—
They were all taken to Truxillo with arms and
baggage, and the whole were then put by the
British commander at the disposition of Gen.
Alverez, under the condition that Walker and
Kuttler should be dealt with according to law,
and that his followers should bo allowed to re
turn to the United States on giving their oaths
never again to serve in any expedition against
Central America; their expenses being paid by
the United States commercial’ agent. The two
leaders, it was supposed, would be executed
shortly. The party which landed to assist the
filibusters were from Omoa, but preparations
had been made to resist them, and they have
probably seen tit to leave Honduras ere this.—
General Chamorro; acting President-of Nicara
gua, has issued a proclamation calling upon the
people to go to the assistance of the Hondurans,
but the capture of Walker will render such a
step unnecessary.
Railway Management. —The N. Y. World,
in commenting upon the recently discovered pec
ulations of some of the employees of the Penn's
Railroad, says it discloses another of tfioserisks
of loss, to which this class.of security is liable.
If these risks were without remedy, there would
be small benefit to tho public in exposing them.
But they cannot only be remedied, but remedied
promptly, by the inauguration of a system now
practiced in Europe. In Europe no passenger
is permitted to enter a railway car without first
purchasing a ticket-at the regular office. Ejec
tion from tho car, and fine or imprisonment, are
the probable penalties of a wilful and knowing
evasion of the regulation. The conductor sim
ply examines the tickets, and a different agent,
at the final destination of the traveler, collects
them. They are numbered consecutively, and
are returned at stated periods, we believe daily,
to the issuing office,where they act as vouchers
and checks. Fraud or collusion is difficult,
seemingly impossible, unless the clerks at every
office and >the conductors combine to defraud.
From a column of “ Religious Notices” which
we find'in the New York Tribune of Saturday
last, we extract the following. The subjects to
be discoursed upon, we take it, dp not exactly

Our cotemporaries are for'the moat pari just ,
now busily engaged in saving the country! from |
the hands of its enemies! It has been said that
the virtues of a people are not known until they
are etpraved upon their tombstones, but it would
certainly be hard to find the virtues of the po
liticalparties of the present day by reading them
in the newspapers. Any one unacquainted with
the political history of this country and the char
acter of our people, would, by perusing the po
litical papers, be led to believe that a dissolu
tion of the Union must inevitably follow the an
nouncement of the result of the election on the
6th of November, so sanguine are the presses of
each party that the selection of their favorite
will alone save the country. political press
is too often mainly so for a consideration, and
'its efforts are directed towards the elevation of
its favorite men to positions of honor, trust, in
fluence and patronage; and that portion of the
press which is controlled by men who are direct
ly pecuniarily interested in the success of their
party, are the most active in the work of mis
representing and defaming the, motives of their

wickedness ofjiarty papers is giving to the po
litical affairs of the country a decidedly disrepu
table and repulsive character, creating a field of
bitter contention, denunciation and quarreling,
without a shadow of honesty and fairness, and

Book and Newspaper Trade on Railroads.
—ln England the railroad cars are divided off
into compartments, each of which contains seats
for eight or ten passengers. While, therefore,
an immense number of books and newspapers
are sold at the principal stations, the construc
tidn of the cars prevents their sale on moving
trains. In this country, on the contrary, peo
ple rush to the train at the lust minute and have
little leisure to secure books or papers, and
hence the great bulk of literary sales is made
en route. To give an idea of the value of a mo
nopoly on any of our great lines of travel, tho
New York Tribune states that Messrs. Adams &
Co., in behalf of D. N. Shear, the projector of
the “ Newspaper Express,” have recently con
cluded a contract with the New York and New
Haven Company, to pay the sum of $5,000 for
the sole privilege of selling papers, magazines
and books on the trains and in the stations of
the company for one year. Thej’ have the priv
ilege of renewing their bargain on similar terms.
Last year this privilege was enjoyed by another
person, for $1,500.
The Pakdonino Power. —The Philadelphia
Press, speaking of the complaints made against,
Governor Packer for his free use of the pardon
ing power, says that with ouc exception, he has
pardoned fewer men than any of his immediate
predecessors, and gives a table of the pardons
issued by Governors Johnson, Bigler, Pollock,
and the present Executive, in proof of the fact.
From it we learn that Gov. Johnson, during his
three years, pardoned three hundred and thirty
eight, restored twenty-seven to citizenship, and
remitted the fines of thirty, Governor Bigler
pardoned two hundred aud seventy-two, restored
forty-eight to citizenship, and remitted the fines
c-f twenty-seven. Governor Pollock pardoned
one hundred and forty-three, restored forty-fivp
to citizenship, and rimitted the fines of eight.
Governor Packer, up to the 17th inst., pardoned
one one hundred and seventy, restored fifty-two
to citizenship, and remitted the fines of fourteen.
Another Calamity. —On Monday last, at 4
minutes before 1 o’clock P. M., the boiler in
the marble and machine works-df W. W. Wal
lace, in Pittsburgh, blew up .and knocked the
entire works into a heap of ruins, hurrying a
number beneath it ' Ten dead bodies and 11
persons more or less injured have been taken
from the ruins. The cause of the explosion can
not be accounted for. The man who had charge
of the engine says that shortly before the explo
sion he tried the water gunge aud found the
water at tho second guage. The safety valve was
giinged to CO pounds, and the boiler seems to
have been in good condition. Some idea of the
force of the explosion may be inferred from the
fact that after leaving its bed, it passed through
and demolished six stout brick walls. The af
fair has cast quite, a gloom over the city and
thousands have visited the scene of the catas
Among the killed, we regret to notice the
name of John DeArmit, formerly of Hollidays-
burg, who was universally respected and esteem
ed by all who knew him.
An American Catholic Church. —The Broth
er Jonathan says there has recently been organ-
ized in Richmond, Virginia, a Society of “ Inde-
pendent American Catholics,” the object of
which is, to dissever all connection with the
Pope of Rome and bis Bishops; and, in fact, to
repudiate and protest against the Roman Hier
archy in every form. It is composed chiefly of
French and German citizens. This is the first
move to, establish an Independent Catholic
Ch*uroh in America,''and bids fair to increase in
strength and importance, ns large numbers of
adopted and native citizens in every State of the
Union, are expected to organize similar congre
fjjg» The officers of our State Agricultural
Society have been, aod probably are yet, in a
pretty bhd fix. They shipped a box containing
all their most valuable papers and documents
on the 4th mst., from Harrisburg to their Fair
Grounds at Pittston. It in some manner, how
ever, miscarried, and its whereabouts cannot be
ascertained. Unless the box has been found,
it is said the Fair must be postponed.
The Philadelphia Inquirer mentions four
/fsen styles of counterfeiting coin. It is estima
j ted that folly ten per cent, of all the apparent
! gold coin in circulation is bogus, much of it be
ing so admirably executed as to deceive bank
officers and other first class judges. The natu
ral and legitimate loss in value of gold coin is
immense. The estimated loss on the coin in cir
culation in the United States is over $1,000,000
per annum.
ANew Idea. —A vote on the Presidential
question is now taken every evening, at the
Pittsburg Theatre Thus far the result has
been favorable to Lincoln. It strikes us that
this is a pretty good dodge of the theatre man
ager to get up an excitement on this subject and
fill his house. It might pay if it was adopted
at other gatherings, as many men now take
more interest in such things than they do oven
in attending church.
Letters to Fictitious, Names. —Attorney
General Black has decided that the Post Office
Department has the power to withhold letters
addressed to fictitious persons or firms, when
such names have been assumed as a part of a
system to cheat and defraud the public. The
fraudulent intent, however, must be very clear.

Blair Furnace, Sept. 21, IBbO
Messrs. Editors: —Louis W. Hail, tlio uublc
champion of the people’s rights, spoke here last
night, to a most attentive and orderly audience
of from 160 to 200 persons, notwithstanding the
evening was very unpropitious and threatening.
The school house was filled and many were com
pelled to stand outside. The door being kept
open, the eager crowd had at least a chance to
hear, if not to sec, the noble young Senator-,
who was frequently greeted with rounds of ap
plause. His speech was sound, conservative
and unanswerable, and his telling points were
fully appreciated. The speech and meeting was
a grand success, and will tell on the 9th of Oc
tober and Oth of Kovemoer, in this confer of
Logan, which will maintain its past integrity,
and continue to work for future victories iu toe
cause of Freedom and Protection.
Missouri Breckinridge Convention. — St.
Louis, September 22. A special despatch to the
Republican, from Jefferson City, states that the
State Convention adopted the report of the com
mittee on resolutions, which declares that where
as, the failure of the Charleston Convention to
nominate, leaving the people their choice of can
didates and principles, therefore, we still adhere
to the principles of constitutional government
which the Democratic parly have always upheld,
and which, if but faithfully carried out, will
perpetuate the Union, and disseminate its bles
sings equally beneficially throughout all the
borders of the confederation ; re-allinns the
platform adopted by the Slate Convention in
April; declares steadfast devotion to the plat
form adopted by the Maryland Institute Con
vention, and accepts Breckinridge and Lane as
the candidates of the Democracy of Missouri.—
Mr. Thurston, a delegate to the Convention at
Charleston, spoke nearly an hour. The most
noticeable feature of Lis speech, was the ex
pression of his belief that Lincoln would be
elected, and his advice to them to prepare for
defeat. After this event, the Democratic party
would be purged, and ready for future victories.
St. Louts, Sipl. 22.—Before the final adjourn
ment of the Breckinridge Convention yesterday,
a resolution was offered, but not acted upon, re
quiring the electors to vote fur any candidate to
defeat Lincoln. The electoral ticket was re
viewed and all vacancies filled. Convention ad
journed sine die.
Fousd his Mother.— Senator Douglas, with
his wife, visited his mother, at Clifton Springs,
N. Y., on Saturday week, remaining until the
hour for the organization of the public meeting
of his friends. The gathering was very large,
including delegations from all the surrounding
towns, numbering from 15,1)00 to 20,000 per
sons. Mr. Douglas commenced his speech by
expressing the pleasure he felt, being enabled
to relieve th<* anxiety of the Republicans by in
forming them that be had found his mother, who,
God bless her, was in fine health-, lie was in
no wjty a.iaoyed by tbe comments of a partiz ut
press. On concluding, the following question
was handed to him ; “ Dave the people of a

non-intervention, to abolish or exclude slavery
from the territory, while in a territorial condi

for his persistant maintenance of that doctrine.
The Chairmen of the Penplebs Party and
Democratic State Central Commit-lees have fail
ed to agree in making arrangements for the ri
val candidates for Governor to meet each other
mi the stump. Mr. McClure, on behalf of Col.
Cnrtin, asked that Gen. Foster should meet
Cm tin at those points where he (Curtiaj had
been advertised to speak, and notice be given to
that effect. Mr. Welsh, on behalf of Gen. Fos
ter, declined this arrangement, and asked new
appointments, some of which would be in pla

declined this proposal, on the ground^that it
would compel Col. Curtin to disappoint his
friends in those localities where he has been ad
vertised to address them.
A Goon Hit. —An exchange makes a good
hit at Mr.. Yancey, the southern seclionalist:
Mr. Yancey proclaims that the pen is already
nibbed which is to write the story of another
revolution. .’Tis more likely that the rope is
already twisted which is to be knotted under
the left ear of those who shall attempt to create
the revolution.
No Fusion in Pennsylvania. — Harrisburg,
Sept. 22d.—As much has recently been publish
ed on the subject of alleged propositions of fusion
in Pennsylvania, the parties are informed that
the question of fusion has at no time been enter
tained by the Democratic Executive Committee.
SBS“ Mr. Douglas, in his New York speech, is
said ; to have intimated that “if the withdrawal
of his name would defeat Mr. Lincoln, he would
at tliis moment withdraw it.”
Anecdote job Cleboymen. —lt not unfre
queqtly happens that established clergymen of
all denominatons receive “calls” to other par
ishes or congregations, and it happens, we fear
almost as frequently, that such “ calls” are ac
cepted if a larger salary is offered among the
inducements. It ist not unusual to hear such
clergymen give among their reasons for leaving
their present position, the “ increased useful
ness!’ which the new field of labor promises.—
We like the honesty of the Quaker, whose son,
a clergyman, having received several “calls,”
askeii him which he would advise him to accept.

A Bogus Prince. — An amusing hohx was |
perpetrated at St. Louis on Monday, in the Per
sonation of the Prince of Wales and his suite, ;
by some wags. They sent a dispatch from Chi- ;
cago, saying that the Prince would arrive by
the next train, and in the next train, sure':
•enough, there was Baron llenfrew and his Men- i
tor, the Duke of Newcastle. A. crowd was as
sembled, and the ladies never thought of their
criooliue, so eagerly did they press forward to
get a sight of royalty. The Prince bowed, the
venerable Duke smiled benignly, in which the
Prince joined, wncu the crowd offered to take
the horses out of the carriage and drag the ve
hicle themselves. The carriage moved over the
whole city, surrounded by eager and excited
spectators, and it was not till next day that
they discovered that they had been paying hon
ors to a bogus Priuce.
Preservation of Cut Flowers— A French

require renewal, the latter remaining limpid.
Toram’s Furniture Warehouse.
This establishment is becoming one of the most attrac
tive ” Institutions” of the Quaker City, and the place where
housekeepers “most do congregate.” Mr. Toni* estah
lisiieu himself at the corner of Ninth <m<t .Varl-ei Streets,
in IS.MX and by snperintendingithe manufacture of every
article himself his wares soon gained a reputation, nnd by
-liberal advertising aud strict attention to business, he was
soon forced to add room after room to .his establishment,
until his is now the most entensive esta'dishment of the
kind in Philadelphia, and being one of special interest to
all housekeepers, we deem it worthy of this special notice.
Mr. Torum is himself a master mechanic, a shrew,l busi
ness man. and a gentleman. He so per is own busi
ness and may be found at the establishment early and late.
He is, in the strict sense of the word, a utilitarian, ami the
reader must not expect, should ho visit his business place,
to find a “showy” establishment, unless, indeed, a hive of
industry and well stocked ware rooms of large dimensions
but unpretending stylo may bo considered ihoivy. The
| pi,we is an attractive one, however, and especially to young
1 housekeepers commencing life and looking for home com
forts. The varieties of style and gradation of prices are
such us to enable one to purchase according to taste and
i with a certainly »f purchasing at the hneest prices. Make
a note of this, reader, and call at the establishment or send

eiont effects upon the system has been clearly proved to
those who have been stricken down in a short space of time
by this dreadful curse, whose checks are wan and meagre,
and whose nights are sleeping and restless, and whose eyes
are dim and sunken, with death staring them in the face,
this compound must prove a blessing; snatching thorn, as
it were, from the month of the grave. None can t now its
true value until they have tested it. 1 When all others have
failed, these Bitters have restored tlie sufferers to pristine
health. Their popularity in all the.Westeru and Southern
parts should introduce them to aH fiimilics.
