The Republican Senatorial Conference
will have met and nominated a candidate
for the Senate ere tbis number of our paper
reaches most of our readers, but not before
some at least will have seen it. We have
already expressed our views on this subject
and without desiring to say aught against
either of the estimable gentlemen nomina
ted by our sister counties, we cannbt refrain
from again expressing our decided convic
tion that of the three gentlemen named
Capt. G. 8. Muffin will add most strength
to our ticket. A fierce fight is to bo made
all over tlic State and with Packer's millions
to back them no means fair or foul will be
left untried to defeat us. In fact it is well
known that a desperate effort is to be made
to carry tbis district. For this purpose any
amount of money will be used and the faeil
ities offered by the construction of the Pitts
burgh and Connellsvifle railroad through
Somerset county and the western part of
this eounty will not be left unused. Capt.
Mullin is a lifelong Republican, an intelli
gent and enterprising citizen, a worthy rep
rcscntativeofour farming community, a man
of the most sterling integrity and withal
served as a soldier io putting down the re
hellion. Having nobly done his share in
putting down the rebels, it is highly ap
propriate that he should now be delegated
to give them allies a drubbing. Give us
Captain Mullin a? a candidate and we think
we will be warranted in promising that he
will leave Bedford county at least two hun
dred ahead of his ticket. We claim to be the
soldier's friends, let a soldier's claims be
recognized and groat strength will be added
to our ticket, and we will at the same time
send a man to the Senate of whom the dis
trict will have cause to be proud. We nev
er did believe in mere local claims to im
portant offices, hut at all times have favored
the best and strongest man. It is the true
policy and there is no better time than the
present for putting it in practice.
WHY DON'T THEY POINT TO
TUEIK OWN HEEDS?
Tt ia quite amusing to see with what cave
copperheads avoid reference to their own
record. When tlicy charge Republicans
with extravagance, they never refer to cop
perhead economy. If they charge Geary's
or any other Republican State administra
tion with lack of economy, they always for
get to refer to the fact, that Democrats
heaped a debt ot S4O,IXH>,OOO upon the
State and taxed every f lot land, and left
both debt and taxes a legacy to the Repub
lican party in 1860. They also forget to say
that while they charge u- with extrava
gance, we have removed taxes from every
foot of land in the State and paid off S2O,
000,000 of the State debt in less than ten
years beside paying heavy war expenses to
put down a copi ihead rebellion. When
they charge I.i'.coln or Grac?'.-- administra
tion with want of economy, they forget
to say that under Buchanan's Demo
cratic administration after years of peace
and plenty they handed ov r to Lincoln's
administration a bankrupt Treasury, with
vie oo low tlx at it ooul Jn ot borrow a dol
!ar ol mousy in the money markets of tlie
world, and that now after a terrible war and
with a heavy debt, under Republican ad
ministration the credit of our country is sec
ond to none in the civilized world. When
they talk of Republican corruption or ex
travagance they forget to tell that the last
Democratic Secretary of the Interior stole
all the funds of his Department and the last
Democratic Secretary of the Navy carried
nearly all our navy over to the rebels ; they
forget also to tel! thai under Andy
Johnson for three years after the close of
the war the public debt increased even with
the most enormous taxes and*that with
greatly lessened taxes a Republican admin
istration hns been reducing and paying off
the debt at the rate of TEN MILLIONS per
month. 1\ hy don't they give both sides.
Such statistics would be highly edifying to
Democratic readers. Let us have the whole
truth. There's richness in the Democratic
side that ought not to be suppressed.
I iie people oT Pennsylvania have been for
years contending against railroad mouojiol
ies. Now the copperheads have the brazen
impudence to a.-k the people to place over
tbcm one of the wealthiest and most nn
s nrpulous of these monopolists iu the per
son of Asa Packer. Monopolies and mono
polists are dangerous. They strive to con
trol legislation for their own selfish purposes
without regard to the welfare of the people.
Packer is a chief among both coal and rail
road monopolists. Will the people trust
their vital interests to such a mm? Arc
the* prepared to surrender themselves
•-laves to rich monopolists? The chief pride
of our Republican govcrnmeuuis that it
distributes wealth more equally among all
the people, so that few arc very rich and few
are very poor. Great wealth of single indi
viduals creates aristocracies, which are the
banc of all government-. Do the people
wi-b to encourage such a state of thiugs by
Placing a man in the gubernatorial chair
only because be is a rich, proud, arLeoeratic
monopolist? If so then they should sap port
I acker. Rut if they wish to preserve cut
republican simplicity and equality lot them
beware of placing any such purse proud
aristocrat io power.
'I nr. DENT MOVEMENT A FAILURE.-
■Judge Dent is likely to come to polit'cal
grief. Advices at Washington, from Mis
sissippi, arc to the effect that the leading
Democrat s now decline to support Dent for
Governor, and say that as he lias failed to
obtain the support of the administration,
they intend to nominate a straight Demo
cratic ticket. Tfepg ends (he IJent guberna
PACKER vs PENNSYLVANIA.
Pennsylvania has to day no worse enemies
than the Anthracite coal operators of which
Asa Packer is one of the chief. The coal
strikes are instigated by the operators and
railroad men for the purpose of putting ex
orbitant profits, in their own pockets, to the
oppression of the poor and the prejudice of
every Pennsylvania interest outside of an
thracite coal. The effect of this course on
the part of the coal operators and railroad
managers is to arouse a furious cry all over
the country against the protective tariff that
in a few years has so wonderfully stimulated
manufacturing enterprise all over the coun
try. Asa Packer in this case is doubly
guilty, being almost exclusive owner of one
of the most important coal carrying roads,
and an extensive operator in anthracite coal.
Forgetful of common decency and regardless
of the wants of the poor in the cities or the
prosperity of his adopted ho has but
one object in view, to heap still higher his
millions of hoarded gold at the expense of
the poor and needy and to the great injury
of the industrial interests of the state of
Pennsylvania. The anthracite coal men are
exciting the most bitter feeling all over the
country against Pennsylvania by their inor
dinate greed. They have exclusive control
of the anthracite trade. They are a set of
unscHpulcus monopolist and they are levy
ing tribute upon the whole country to fill
their already overflowing coffers. Of these
greedy cormorants Asa Packer is the head
and chief. Unsatisfied with his $20,000,-
O(X> he is eager to increase it at the expense
of every laboring man in the country. His
greed of gold would sacrifice every interest
of his fellowtnen and especially of the labor
ing poor. The rememberancoof his uncere
monious dipping in the canal by his op
pressed and infuriated employes seems to
h iv i no effect upon his supreme selfishness,
lie only compromised with them to extend
his robbery of the poor and needy over a
wider circ'e. Railroad and coal monopolists
have but little sympathy with the men out
of whose hard labor they coin their gold.
Packer combines the worst features of both.
COPPERHEADS tor REPUDIATION.
Repudiation is becoming the watchword
of eoppcihcads the whole country over.
Buck Pomeroy who engineered Packer's
nomination openly declares for repudiation.
Pendleton the Copperhead candidate for
Governor of Ohio is an outspoken advocate
of repudiation. Emerson Etheridge, a cop
perhead leader in Tennessee, and Andrew
Johns in, rival copperhead candidates for
the U. S. Senate are both repudiationists.
In fact the whole copperhead party inclu
ding all the Southern rebels are in favor of
repudiation. Are our people prepared to
repudiate the war debt? Are they prepar
ed to turn the widows and orphans of the
men, who gave their lives for the Union,
penniless upon the cold charities of the
woiid? Arc they prepared to deny the pit
tance of'a pension to the maimed and crip
pled heroes still among us? If not, then
they arc not prepared for repudiation. Re
pudiation means not only the withholding
of pensions from the maimed and crippled
soldiers of the Union and the widows and
orphans of our immortal heroes who died
for their country, but it means, the robbing
of thousands of charitable trusts whose
funds arc invested in government bonds,
the robbing of churches, colleges, schools,
savings banks and every class of institut ions
that have invested their funds in the public
securities for safe keeping. It means gen
eral bankruptcy over the whole country.
This is the Copperhead programme. It
means distress and disaster almost equal to
the rebellion itself, also a democratic legacy.
Every vote cast for Packer or any other cop
perhead candidate is a vote for repudiation.
Repudiation is national dishonesty and na
tional disgrace. Let no honest man com
mit himself tu any such scheme of robbery.
Vote for Geary, economy and honest pay
ment of debts both state and national.

Section 15th of the Registry law reads as
"Section 1.3. All elections forcity, ward,

and have their regular township tickets
made out in due time.
WE point with very decided satisfaction
to the great reduction made on the State
debt - ince the induction of Governor Geary
into office. But the work has not ended.
In another column our readers will observe
an advertisement of the State Sinking Fund
Commissioners announcing that sealed bids
will be received up to October Ist, 18C9, for
the redemption of ONE MILLION DOLLARS
of the State loan yet to mature. Is this not
flottering to the present administration of
the affairs of the Commonwealth? Do the
people want to change from the close econo
my and marked honesty which make con
spicuous the present Administration, to the
plundering policy and reckless extravagance
in all departments of the State Government
which will fellow the election of Mr. Packer
as Governor? — PiUtburgh Gazette.
$20,000,000.00. —It is a well established
I fact that at the outbreak of the Rebellion,
when an effort was made to raise the three
months men, Asa Packer, Esq., contributed
iift'j dollars to that purpose. So far as we
can learn, this was his first and lasfcontribu
<:ion, to cairy on the war, for his name is
not found among the contributors to the
Christian and Sanitary Commissions, those
noble Institutions for the support and com
fort of the sick and wounded soldiers. He
did, however, give his check for $20,000 -
to aid in the-election -of Seymour and
Blair. Many a poor widow gave her only
son, her main suppoit at home, to suppress
the Rebellion. How does that contrast with
the miserable pittance given by this con

THE copperheads have nominated Pendle
ton for Governor of Ohio, an outspoken re
pudiationi.-t. In Tennessee Emerson Ethe
lidgc one of their leaders is openly advoca
ting repudiation of the State debt incurred
in putting down the rebellion and keeping
Tennessee in the Union Repudiation
means lobbing soldier's widows and orphans
of their pensions.
WiTH all the copperhead cry of taxes,
they forget to say tht our taxes Iwth State
and national are levied to pay debts con
tracted by Democrats or to put down a
Democratic rebellion. We divine tbc fu
ture by a careful study of the past. The
past of Democracy gives but little evidence
of any hope for it in the future.
THE whole eopperhead press of the State
is following the Ilarrisburg Ritriot in trying
to ferret out some short-coming in the State
finances. Thus far they have signally fail
ed to make a decent show of figures that
could be substantiated from the record. We
would suggest that it would be more to the
point if they would set themselves to figure
up how much it. cost the State to pay the
expense of putting down the rebellion. This
is to be charged directly to the copperhead
party. But for this Democratic rebellion
Republican economy would have entirely
freed the State from debt before this time.
In spite of the immense war tax imposed
upon the state bv the rebellion, a very large
redaction has been made in the actual debt
and the tax upon real estate totally abolish
ed. Such things were never known under
a copperhead administration.
SECRETARY BOOTWELL'S financial policy
needs no better recommendation than the
fact that U. S. bonds and gold are nearer the
same value to day than they have been since
the beginning of the rebellion. Gold closed
at 1,30} on Saturday and U. S. sixes 1881
were quoted at 1,23} on the same day, a
difference of only 8 cents. Why don't our
copperhead friends call the special attention
of their readers to this fact? It would be a
very appropriate comment on the financial
resolution of their platform, especially if the
additional fact were stated that under the
last Democratic administration Government
bonds were worth nothing, and could not be
sold at all in foreign markeft.
OUR copperhead cotemporary would do
well to explain how it comes that a Demo
cratic administration in Bedford county has
been levying and collecting a tax on land for
two or three years after the tax upon real
estate has been abolished all over the State
by a Republican administration Bedford
county needs a change in her administration
very badly and there is no better time than
now to make it. The election of Dibert,
Lingenfeltcr, Dichl, Phillips and Fink,
would do a great deal toward bringing about
a more economical administration of Bed
ford county finances.
THE Democracy of Philadelphia are evi
dently preparing the way for a "back down"
on the "nigger" question. Last week their
City Convention met to revise the standing
rules of the party, and after discussion the
word "white" was stricken from the draft of
their new party constitution by a decided
vote. The Democracy of Adams are a lit.
tie slow on this question, and have deter
mined once more to go into the campaign as
a "white man's party."— Adams Star and

THE news from Cuba for the past few
weeks has been more favorable for the pa
triots. Several battles are reported all of
which have resulted favorably for the insur
gents and in one of which they took quite a

gaining strength and their prospects bright
en with time.
IT is remarkable how oblivious the cop
perheads and rebels are of their past rec
ords. It is a tender subject with them, but
the people cauuut euluely forget. Jail-birds
are always watched because of their past
record ; however disagreeable it may be to
them the public learns that it is one of the
most necessary precautions.
ASA PACKER is one of the coal monopo
lists and is now doing more than any other
man in the State to damage the coal and
iron interests of Pennsylvania. He is an
enemy to the best interests of bis own State,
and cares for nothing but his own selfish
SOLDIERS are afraid of Copperhead asso
ciations. Hancock and Rosecrans both po
litely decline the honor of being made stand
ard bearers for the party against whieh they
fought for four years. Hypocritical profes

THE Democracy have had two very recent
victories, the one when they massacred the
negroes at Mobile, the other when they mur
dered a lot of them on a western steamboat.
The Gazette forgot to meuliuu these two

Wht are the Pennsylvania copperheads
like the children of Israel in the Wilderness?
Because they have set up a golden calf and
call upon all the people to worship him.
THE Miners' Journal says truly that Asa
Packer will be chiefly remembered after Oc
tober next as the last Copperhead who tried
to be Governor of Pennsylvania.
IF it had not been for Packer's $20,000,-
000 he would never have been heard of
as a Democratic candidate.
PACKER ran away from Mauch Chunk to
avoid paying his taxes—A pretty specimen
of a man to make a Governor.
SOLDIERS remember that Packer was en
joying himself in Europe, in peace and safe
ty, while Geary was battling for the Union.
IYEKTCCKY is rapidly approaching the verge
of civilization. About twenty Union men
have been elected to the Legislature.
Do we object to Packer because he is rich?
Not by any means. We object to him be
cause he would never have been nominated
had he not been rich.
"PACKER made money buying coal lands
cheap and then waiting for advancement.
He can lose it by buying nominations dear
and waiting for election."
WITH ALL his immense wealth, can Asa
Packer point to a single liberal gift made, by
him in behalf of his imperiled country during
the late war? No wonder he is a favorite
with rebel Democracy.
THE Republican majorty in Alabama at the
election for Congressmen and Legislature
foots up more than 10,000. Last fall the
State only gave 4,000 for Grant.
TUE DIFFERENCE.— GeneraI Rosecrans de
clined a nomination for Governor of Ohio on
the excuse that he wished to pay his debts,
and the Democrats, taking the hint, have se
lected Pendleton, who is in favor of "repu
diation" under all circumstances.
TOE New York World of August 4th has
an article of six and a half columns to show
that the Democratic party is the "only pany
pleged to restore specie payments."
Now to prove its remarkable consistency,
the Democratic party of Ohio, have nominated
George 11. Pendleton, the advocate of an un
limited paper currency, as their candidate for
AN OHIO paper remarks that "Democracy
and ignorance are inseparable. Destroy
ignorance, and yon destroy Democracy."
We are acting upon that principle in Penn
sylvania. Our iree schools are doing the
business, and the most thoughtful Democrats
are setting their houses in order.
SINCE the nomination of Asa Packer for
Governor the Democrats ot this State have
conclnded to dry up the cry abont "rich
bondholders;" but since the declination of
Rosecrans, in Ohio, and the nomination of
Pendleton in his stead, they intend to go
their length in harping on that string there.
It any Democratic stumper should, during
the canvass appear in both States, he will
have to be careful to provide himself with two
speeches just the opposite of each other
FATHER ABRAHAM says that Asa Packer's
record may be briefly stated as follows:
First, appointed associate judge in North
ampton county; second, elected to tho Legis
lature : third, elected to Congress, in 1852,
and re-elected in 1854, and fourth, and lastly,
was a delegate to the Democratic National
Convention held at Charleston, in 1860, from
which he bolted and united with the Southern
secessionists in nominating John C. Breck

Stephen A. Douglas, the regular Democratic
THE Reading Times is ventilating Asa
Packer's love (?) for the poor man. The
Times says that Mr. Packer amassed a col
ossal fortune by grinding the faces of the poor.
Years ago he made heavy contracts for boating
cot.l to New York, and got a kind of monopoly
of the business. He carried his oppression
of boatmen so far that they rebelled against
him, and resorted to a strike. He went to
South, Easton, where the boatmen had con
gregated, to compel them to continue in his
service; "but so violent was the feeling against
him that he was seized by the men, thrown
into the Lehigh, and would have been
drowned but for a timely rescue. So ex
asperated were the men against Packer, that
they drove the man who had saved his life
from the ground with stones!"
DEMOCRATIC OPINION ON NEGRO SUFFER AGE.
—The Green Bay Advocate, one of the oldest,
most consistent and reliable Democratic
journals published iu Wisconsin, in which
the negro now enjoys the right of suffrage,
in its issue of the Bth inst., says :
The whole subject is a dead issue and in
passing from theory to practice, we are glad it
is so near a solution. If the African race in
the Southern States were on a par with the
colored people as we tind tbem among us, we
should have little fear of the result. We have
no more prejudice against a man on accouul
of the color of his skin than the color of his
coat. JFe have watched with interest the
course of life of the colored people of this
State, and so far as we hare been able to de
termine, they are well qualified to vote and
are clearly entitled to that privilege. They
are industrious; temperate, law abiding and
WHAT IT COSTS.— -The people of the United
States are plundered of twenty millions of
dollars a year by the tariff on coal, and of
twenty three millions of dollars a year by the
tariff on iron.
Forty three millions of dollars a year thus
goes straight from the pockets of hard-work
ing people into the pockets of only these two
classes oi monopolists and the Congressmen
who conspire to pass the laws which authorize
the plundering.— N. J'. If orld.
One of the most extensive and successful
of those "monopolists" is Mr. Asa Packer of
Carbon county, who has amassed Twenty
Millions of Dollars by his operations in coal,
Ac., and whom The World is trying to make
Governor of Pennsylvania. We do not
charge liiw wllh making this fortune by
robbing tho poor but The World clearly does.
Ought it not to stop supporting or stop de
faming him? — N. Y Tribune.
PERHAPS a reason for Asa Packer's un
popularity throughout the Lehigh region
may be found in the proverb, "No man is
a hero to his own valley."

of Pennsylvania for Mr. Packer.

latest romance of French history. It pro

Robespierre, Danton, the Duke d'Enghien,
Ney, and the other men ot the time ; who was
concerned in the attempt of Louis XVI and
his family to escape, and saw it prevented ;
and who describes, with thrilling earnestness
and effect, the trial and execution of Louis
and Marie Antoinette, the Reign of Terror,
and the'downfall of Robespierre. This is a
romance of truth every incident of which is
vouched for by history. It may be considered

Mr. C. C. Coffiin writes in very enthusi
astic terms to the Boston Journal, from the
Red River of the North, five hundred miles
northwest of Chicago:
One of the most wonderful features of
this region is its climate. Here we are in
latiiuae 46 —several degrees further north
than Boston, but the summers are longer
thau in Massachusests, and the winters,
though colder, are lees severe than in that
State. The air is dry, the days calm, and

Yesterday I saw a Scotchman, who lives
five hundred, miles ncrih of this point in a
straight line, on the shore of Lake Winni
peg. The winter there, he says, is not so
severe as at Chicago. Scientific men have
speculated on this phenomena, but we Lave
seen ne satisfactory explanation. Doubt
les* it 'S due to a combination of causes—
the influence of' the great lakes on one side
and the llocky Mountains on the other —to
the Missouri and Mississippi and Red riv
ers, to the currents of air sweeping up the
Missouri vallev from the dry plains of Ne
braska. 15a the cau c what it may, the fact
remains that here—reaching from Chicago
northwest over a territory embracing Wis
consin, Minnesota, Daeotah, Northern
Montana aud a vast region in the British
Possessions—lie the wheat lands of North
No other country has such a domain.
The plains of Bavaria and Hungary, upon
which Central Europe relics for its grain,
united, would not exceed in area a single
county in Minnesota. The fine lands of
Prussia have a thin soil, while the wheat
fields of France have been cultivated for
centuries, and are only kept in heart by con
stant application of fertilizers, but here the
soil is in its virgin state, yielding such re
turns as are not obtained in any other land,
unless it be in tho San Joaquin and SaDta
Clara valleys of California.
The most fertile acre of the Ganges Val
ley in India will not yield a greater return
than these of the Northwest. The Nile and
the Vangtzc—the fertility renewed by each
annual flood—may vie with the uplands of
Minnesota, but there arc sections along this
lied river of the North —along the Chey
enne and Mouse rivers of Daeotah, which
are not surpassed by the richest in the heart
of China or on the Delta of the Nile.
All of this territory lies north and east of
the Missouri, and this side of the Rocky
Mountains. We have spoken of it as a
wheat field, and have said nothing of its oth
er resources, but here are supplies of timber
from which the people of more southern
sections are to receive their future building
materials. Looking out from my tent to
ward the northeast I can see, on the hori
zon, the dim blue outline of the timbered re
gion around the streams forming the head
waters of the Mississippi. If wc travel
west we shall find eshaustless supplies of
coal. Between the Red river of the North
and the Rocky Mountains, lies the great
coal field of this granary of the Continent.
On the streams that find their way into
Lake Superior, and on the Mississippi, are
sites for manufactories, where, in coming
years, the hum of machinery, the clatter of
the shuttle, and buzzing of mill wheels, will
break the stillness of the primeval solitude.
A New American Enterprise.
The famous cigars of Havana have
achieved their reputation not because they
are solely composed of a superior quality
of tobacco. Plants in all respects similar
to those used in Havana have been rolled
into cigars here, and yet they possessed
not the desirable flavor of the Havana*.
There seems to bo something in our cli
mate that has a deteriorating influence on
the tobacco while under treatment for ci
gars. Therefore, we are compelled to im
port all the choice brands. A celebrated
Cuban manufacturer, taking into consider
ation that the climate of Key West, Fla.,
was similar to that of Cuba, determined to
try the manufacture of cigars at that point.
The experiment proved a success, a large
factory has been erected, the best tobacco
is brought to it from Cuban fields, and two
hundred thousand cigars per month are now
being turned out from the Key West es
tablishment. They are said to equal in
flavor the finest brands of Cuban cigars, and
can be furnished to American consumers at
from thirty to forty per cent, less than the
present prices asked and paid for similar
Our foreign cigar trade is likely to be
revolutionized by this enterprise. More
factories will soon be established at Key
West, and the cigars can be produced at
still lower rates by the introduction of
Chinese workmco. In California tbc
Mongolians are employed in the cigar
manufactories, and their skill in manipu
lating tobacco is described by intelligent
and reliable persons who have witnessed
it as something bordering oa the marvel
ous. They are not only rapid and dexter
ous workmen, bnt imitate tbc shape and
size of a pattern cigar with a fidelity that
renders distinction between the model and
copy impossible even to experts.
THE Chicago Tribune, in describing a
fashionable marriage, In a church, utters a
profound truth when it says that "Mar

interest felt in them by ladies never grows '
Public Schools and the Democracy.
ID Ohio the pending politicpl contest will
be complicated by the introduction of the
public school question. The Catholics s?
the State, a portion of them el least, un
der i lie general leadership of the Archbishop
of Cincinnati, are desirous of overturning
the present public school system aDd supply
ing its place with denominational schools.
The Republican party is strongly opposed to
this plan, and the Republican journals are
speaking out strongly in favor of the system
as it is, under which some three millions of
dollars are annually expended for public
school education. Tho Democratic papers
generally ignore the question nnd do not
commit themselves upon either side, though
several have taken ground with the Catho
lies, and the religious journals ot that de
nomination have not hesitated to throw
themselves into the fight. The means
through which the change will be made, if
made at all, will be tho Legislature, and the
Legislative elections, therefore, will have a
new element of interest and importance this
year. The American and German Demo
crats would prefer to have the system uc
changcd, but the Democratic anxiety for
getting the political control of Ohio is so
great that it will be safe to count the entire
party in lavor of the new movement — Phila
PEACHES IN NEW YORK. —Peaches are
uiore plentiful than were Egypt's frogs.
One hundred thousand baskets a day are
being emptied into our city. Every one of
these baskets will contain about one hundred
and eighty peaches, which gives us eighteen
million peaches, or for the million of us
eighteen peaches a day for every man, wo
man and child. As site distribution is not
equal, we are put to our wits to coosumc
them. We tat them on the streets and in
the closet; our women stew them up and
cut them up in cream; we carry them in our
pockets, and employ every spare moment in
reducing the supply; but every morning
there is a new avalanche.
The railroads of New Jersey arc wholly
given up to peach transportation. The riv
er streets of our city are blockaded with the
fruit, and fashionable thoroughfares are
paved with peach stones. The oldest vege
tarian never saw such a crop. There is no
hope of diminution until the canners begin
work, and then the supply will only be trans
ferred from baskets to jars. One comfort
there is in the faet; peaches cannot injure
the feeblest constitution ; there is no chole
ra, dysentery, or zymotic poison in them if
ripe and even a surfeit produces no nausea.
Therefore, let the people eat while the sea
son lasts and the cans are yet in abeyance.
A MISTAKE OF TIIE STRONG-MINDED. —
Miss Catharine Beecher says that it is an
unfortunate feature of some who, with the
best of motives, are laboring to relieve the
Lurdens of their sex, that they assume that
the fault rests with men, as if they were in
antagonism with woman's interests and
rights. But in all Christian countries men
are trained to a tender care of wives, moth
ers, and sisters, and a chivalrous impulse
to protect and provide for helpless woman
hood is often stronger in men than in most
women who have DO such training. The
grand difficulty is that the teachings of
our Heavenly Father, as to the care of the
feebler members of bis great family, have
been perfectly realized by women as much
as by men, and therefore they have never
understood their rights, nor claimed the
advantages which are now seen to be their
just due. It is certain that ail just and be
nevolent men feel the wrongs and disa
bilities of womanhood as much as most
women do, and have been as much per
plexed in seeking the most effective rem
CHASE AND A NEW PARTY.— The New
York Herald says, that just after the result
of the Virginia election became known
Chief Justice Chase wrote a confidential
letter to a prominent politician in Ten
nessee, an old friend of his, wherein he ex
pressed much gratification at the defeat of
the bitter-enders in Virginia, and rejoiced
over the success of the Conservatives. The
Chief Justice expresses the hope that re
sults similar to that in Virginia would be
produced in Tennessee, Mississippi and
Texas, and strongly hinted that in his
opinion the Republican party had served
its day, and the time was at hand when a
new Conservative party should be formed
which would embrace the rebels and mod
erate men of all existing parties. This
letter was kept very quiet for some time,
but after the Tennessee election the gentlc
man to whom it was addressed seemed to
consider the seal of secrecy removed, and
showed it round quite freely. He refused,
however, to give it to the press.
WHAT is SAID OF THE CIIINESF..— The
Baltimore Sun epitomizes what a Spanish
Minister to Pekiu says of the Chine-e, as
In Cuba some hundreds of tho Chinese
have got a few thousand dollars capital, five
or six about $200,000, and one is worth
$400,000, though it is only a few years since
the Chinese colonizations began. In the
Philippine Islands, where it is older, the
Chinese and their race are mixed; they are
proprietors of most of the lands in the
country, and the natives, less intelligent,
sinking iulo the working population. The
Chinese usually marry when and where they
can find wives. In the East Indies they
have intermarried with the Malays and the
Tagals, and in the Sandwich Islands they
wed with the Kanakas, though the latter
are professed Christians. In Peru they are
settling in considerable numbers, and well
were it for the State of South America if
the Chinese would come with their industry
and love of order. If they find their way
into the Southern States, either the ne
groes will have to quit work or become more
capable and industrious.
THE BYRON SCANDAL.—In connection
with the recent rcagitation of the Byron
scandal, the following is stated; When
Moore, to whom Byron had entrusted the
task of writing up his lite, as soon as he
himself should be dead—heard of the poet's
demise, he rushed to Murray, at London,
to get out the "Life" he had already plsced
in the hands of that publisher. Lady By
ron's friends heard that this "Life" had
some very startling revelations in it, and
came quickly up to stop it. After consulta
tion and an altercation, it was agreed, so
the story goes, that if Lady Byron s friends
would pay Murray the amount which he
had advanced to Moore, the book should
be suppressed, and Moore would write an
other "Life," toning down things generally.
This was done, but it is said a few copies
of the suppressed book were printed pri
vately. It' this be true, Mrs. Stowe's At
lantic article will be pretty sure La biing
"PRECISELY" So.—The "Good Templar"
takes a moral view of the Philadelphia fire,
which destroyed 21,000 barrels of whisky.

says that philosophical print, "will amount
to over forty millions of drinks—enough for
one general 'treat' all round to every inhadit

time have made twenty two millions six
hundred and eighty-eight thousand drinks
—estimating only one drink to each quart

thousand fights and other 'onpleasant' ex

police and court cases; twelve hundred jobs
for grave diggers; forty-five thousand com
