announced his Intention of selling throo

later In tho' same day ho stated that ho
would only sell one million. ,A a uiu

Gold at 120 or thereabouts aud bus!
ucss llrms going dbwii by scores such
Is tho news which reaches us frotn'New
York. Tho causo of these failures Is
the extraordinary fall in gold, entail
lne fearful losses upon those merchants
who purchased' goods when gold was at
140 or 160 and ontered Into contracts
for their delivery at market rate, for
gold. Wo presume tho end Is not yet,
and that many other smashes will bo,
chronicled. It Is a pity the distress and
ruin could not fall upon the heads of
speculators and gamblers, Instead of
honorable and industrious business meu
who nro not responsible for tho Inflation
and depression of tho "coin of tho
It. Is with tho deepest regret that wo
learn of tho, appointment of tho man,
Edwin M.Stanton.who has broken moro
laws than ho ever read, to tho Impor
tant, but no longer honorable position
of Associate Justice In the Supremo
Court of tho United States. Setting
aside his abilities, which aro those of a
fourtli rato lawyer there Is no man
lu tho country who has, and who de
serves to have, as many bitter enemies,
Ben. Butler not excepted. His tyranni
cal and overbearing course whilst Secre
tary of War, will hot bo readily forgot
ten, nor will his action In tho matter of
bis removal from office by Mr.Johnsou
commend him to tho Judgment of his
countrymen, or at least a largo portion
of them., Why Mr. Grant appointed
him, we cannot conceive.. As his name
doe3.ttotflguro,prnmlnently In tho lists
of subscribers to any Grant testimonials,
wo presume the Executive only follow
ed his usual plan of selecting weak, and
unpopular men for high, position!', tho
crowning act of which system may be
fairly balanced between Stanton and
Sickles. But one thing is now needed
to render the job complete and that is,
tho appointment of that eminent mili
tary jurist, Joseph Ilolt, formerly Judgo
Advocate General, to, tho yet vacant
chair of tho Supreme Bench. Mr. Presi
dent Grant may then rightly consider
that ho has accomplished enough to
mako his administration remembered
for somo years to come.
Senator So wry on Geary.
The reporter of the Harrisburg 'Pa
triot has been interviewing State Sena
tor Lowry, and tho following is given
as the result.
AS TO GOVEIlNOn, QSAItY.
I want no quarrel with his Excel
lency. He treated Mr. Browster shame
fully, but let that pass. I want no
troublo with the Governor. I ,havo
troublo enough with tho "ring. "If It Is
truo that Geary has Joined it, so much
His undue anxiety to'bo re-elected led
him into many acts which are uot de
fensible. Geary dreaded tho power of
tno "ring" mucn moro than he feared or
trusted tho people The Ilertllc act was
tho roughest pleco of legislation l ever
saw, and It would bo hard to defend tho
Governor for signing It. Covodo gavo
tho truo reason for Attorney General
Brewster's removal. It was a parly ne
cessity. Maim and Kemblo, with their
gangs of repeaters, could bq brought to
terms In no other way. I' want Gover
nor Geary to keep tho matter on that
ground. If ho attempts to shift It I will
have something moro to say.

much political fraud and rascality dur-
lug tho last campaign that ho hoped ho

Reporter. Why within six years '.
Senator Lowry. He said hu wanted
to plead the statute of limitations with
tho Almighty! ;
THE CASE OF SCHOKrrE.
Governor Geary will hang Schoeppe
n no can. xno man may be guilty, but
a Scotch Jury would say, "not proven."
lie might have been convicted of for
gery, or of addressing perjured vows of
love to an old maid, but there is not
sufficient proof of murder. Geary Is a
I'resbyterlan.and that sect likes to hang
people. Why I Jcnewa good christian wo
man who would Insist that Jeff. Davis
must be hanged. In order to gratify her
tastes he bought nsmall gutta percha Jeff
uavis, tiod a ropo around his elastic
neck, and hitched him up to the chan
delier. Whenever her rage for hanging
uavis would como on, sho would rush
into tho room, and give her India rub
ber puppet a twitch. This relieved her
very much. She has finally forclven
Joff. Davis, but sho novor will forgive
Horaco Greeley for going all tho way
to Richmond to become security for the
chief of the rebels. She Is a good Pres.
bytcrlan. Whenover Geary signs a
death warrant, tho fact Is immediately
telegraphed all oyer tho country, He
wants the people to know that tho wan
nor has drawn his sword. If a murder
wero committed on Monday, Geary
Houm nave xno accused tried on Tuns
day, convicted on Wednesday, convert-
on uii iuursuaytana hanged on Friday.

Charles Reade's dramatic story, will, It
seems, continue to delight tho readers
of The Galaxy during the greater
part of tho noxt year.
The Galaxy's programmo for 1870
Is, In other respects, a very Inviting
ono. A new story from Mrs. Edwards,
tho author of "Susan Fielding," "Arch.
io t,oven," etc.,- nnu ono or tno very
ocst female novelists writing tho Enir
Hsh language, Is promised, to begin,
probably, on tho completion of Mr.
Reade's slory. Anthony Trollopo will
furnish a series of "Editor's Vales," In
which ho will work an entirely now
vein. Parke Godwin, ono of tho ablest
of American writers, will glvo Tho
Galaxy a series of notoworthy articles
on historical subjects. Richard Grant
White will contlnuo his critical and
social essays. Justin McCarthy, whoso
skill as an effective magazlno writer In
perhaps unequalled, will supply critical
analyses of prominent Individuals In
politics, sclenco and letters. A very
attractive series of articles will ho that
by a late Ecclesiastic of tho Roman
Catholic Church, In which ho will give
personal recollections or the Interior
life of Rome, describing tho charactor
and dally Ilfo of the ropo, the cardinals,
mo priests, monies, ete. Another series
likely to attract attention will bo ono
dealing trenchantly with the society of
to-day, under a unique form. Science
will be represented by Dm. J. C. Dalton
and J. C. Draper, both very eminent
physiologists, and others.

Tho Columbia County Invasion
THE FtANTZ MBKTINd.
Its Cause i Kathan J. Hess, (a gov
on tho trlalfof D.'M'Hehryfcthat "on
tho morning of tho llth of Aug. about
7 or 8 o'clock, Uittttz notified him of tho
mectlng;that lie went tollantz's through

that ho went thero about 10 o'clock. In
tho forenoon and loft about noon, rind
that liohcard.ot tho meeting .that, tho
soldiers at Bloomsburg and tho Harvey-
vlllo men wero coming up to burn tho
nronorty In and around Bcntotp."
Upon tho trial of John Rnntz, tho
samo witness, belng'moro fully examin
ed, testified with still grcatercomplcto-
ness on this point. Ho said, " It was
reported around by different persons
that soldiers wero coullng up to help
somo citizens who had been trying to
take drafted men, and that they would
burn the buildings of thoso, that wero
drafted and of them that resisted. Thcro
was no opposition mado or resistance
offered to tho soldiers when they camo
Uj,ii m )lcimj tho report os to ob
ject of soldiers a diy, or thrco or four,
beforo this meeting. I heard af
terwards that tho object' was because
they heard tho soldiers wero going to
burn and destroy was to protect their
property from soldiers and citizens from
other places ; from Falrmount who had
been trying to arrest drafted men, and
that brought on the shooting."
It Was reported among tho men who
met at tho barn that citizens wero com
ing from Falrmount and Harveyvlllo
to burn aud assist In burning property
"I hoard that report four or fivo
days beforo tho meeting."
Confirmatory of this ovldeuco was tho
testimony of a number of other witnes
ses examined upon tho trials for tho
prosecution aud for tho defense. But
wo shall conflno ourselves to tho testi
mony of government witnesses, nnd in
nddltlon to tho statement of It. L. F.
Colley given in our 10th number, will
cite thoso of two others mado in tho
M'Henry trial :
Silas Kama, testified, "that ho heard
tho story that tho soldiers wero coming
thero to burn and destroy property : ho
heard It that day at tho mceUng. Chas,
Gibbem also, testified, "that ho heard
it said at the meeting that the soldiers
wero coming to burn houses aud kill
It thus appears with sufficient clear
ness from the evidenco for tho prosecu
tlon (without resorting to other sources
for lnformntion)tliat exciting nnd alarm
ing reports were rifo In tho neighbor
hood when tho meeting was held, and
before, and that they constituted ono of
tho leading causes of tho meeting if thoy
did not alono produco it. A great part
of thoso who attended went to It- like
Nathan J. Hess, from motives of curl
osity, but it was a curiosity stimulated
by alarm and without any formed In
tentioii regarding tho action which
should take place. As to all such per
sons, (and they- constituted tho great
mas3 of tho meeting,) thcro can bo no
imputation oi any criminal design or
It may bo said that tho reports to
which wo have referred and tho fears
founded upon them were alike ground
less ; that there was In fact no danger to
tno persons or property of citizens and
no necessity for consultation in regard
to tho impending Invasion. If all this
should bo conceded, tho explanation' wo
havo given of the Rantz meeting would
still remain; it might still bo regarded
as tho result of excitement and ofa real
apprehension of danger among the poo
pie. But wo aro not at all certain that
thero wero.no good grounds for excite
ment nnd alarm. Threats had been
freely uttered at Harvey ville and In this
county against the so-called "Fishing-
creek Insurgents," and troops in largo
numbers, beyond any public require
ment for tho arrest of drafted mcn.wero
being introduced into tho country. The
luea orvisllng tho Fiahingcreck coun
try with flro nnd sword was certainly
entertained and such visitation was
openly threatened, and troops wero pre
pared or collected apparently for that
very work. Therefore, an expectation
or fear among tho peoplo Hint violence
would bo uicd and Injury inflicted upon
tnem, was not unreasonable or propos
Its Proceedings : Thero was no
organization of tho meeting by tho
choice of officers, nor nny record kept of
wnat was uoncv No resolutions wero
adopted or proposed, nor was any qucs
tlon whatever submitted ton vote. It
was therefore qullo informal and had
no official or regular character as an or
ganized body. Besides, as already men
tloned, tho same persons did not com
poso it throughout. Somo attended in
tho forenoon nnd then left; others camo
in tho afternoou. Rantz hlmbelf niu
havo been absent a good part of thetime,
for upon his trial, E. J. M'Henry tcstl
fled as follows :
"I' saw Rantz ot my houso on Sunday
Aug. llth, about 12 o'clock. Illvothree
miles from him. He has a farm about
five miles from whero ho lives, which
ho must pass my houso to go and sco.
Now It Is obvious that to n meeting
of this Irregular kind, without .organ!
zatlon and shifting In its memborshli
wo cannot apply tho same rules or reas
oning which would apply to ono of
regular character and uniform compo
8Ulon. An Individual member of tho
meeting can only be held responsible
for what occurred whilo ho was actually
present ana to which ho directly con
tributcd by speech or conduct. Pre
sumptive or Implied responsibility up
on him as n member of tho meeting for
t lionets or his associates, is out of tho
question and cannot bo assumed. Hence
It becomes Important, In order to form
a proper Judgement of tho Rantz meet

with Stauffor to arrest two persona
u'l'fiqii nnmrei'woro unknown. Wo nr-
rested tho defendants; told them what
thochargo was; Mr. Uctherlngton recog
nized him: Nankervls commenced to
mnkoa statement; he said hu did not
kill tho child; ho Insisted upon making
a statement; I told him It would be
used nfiiltiHt him : ho did not tako tho
child to Centralla, for tho reason that
hn Iind rnnrosonted himself ns n single
man, and ho would loso his situation if
ho went thero with tho child. Ho made
tho same statement to Fcttcrman and
his wife1, with whom ho was living
whon wo arrested him.

was wot : ubout 10 inches of tho lower
part of its dress wns dry, and had been

child seemed to bo two weeks old, n big

about a rod from tho creek, on tho op
postto side of the log; all Its clothes
and underclothes wero wot.
Samuel Berluchy, M. D., sworn: I
held a nost mortem examination on n
child iu Union township, about the tith
or 7th of November last, In nn outbuild
ing or Mr. iletherlngton ; 1 round that
the head hud been opened by a previous
examination by Dr. Renschlor; there
was yet blood on the cranium, tho brain
itself not having suffered any injury;
on opening tho chest I found tho lungs
completely filled with blood through
out tho entire part: ono of tho vontrl-
clcs and auricles of tho heart contained
also somo coagulated blood : tho stom
ach and whole of tho abdominal viscera
were healthy nud freo from anv In urv
whatever ; i concluded tho child came
to Its death by suffocation ; whether
that had been produced bv the hand.
or anything placed over Its mouth, or
by drowning, 1 eould not determlno;
it mignt navo ueeu uono by some ex
treme forco, but thero wns no iniurv
done to tho surface of tho child not
the slightest mark ; blood oozing from
tho nostrils is ono of tho strongest indi
cations of suffocation, when tho lungs
are filled with blood: suffocation will
oe produced oy noiuing the head under
water ; iieatu must navo been produced
suddenly; tho samo indications could
not havo been produced if tho child
had lain thcro and died or frozen to
death; tho escape of blood rrom tho
brain could by no means havo been
produced, than from tho rupture of a
smau vein caused pysunocattou ; l saw
no external marks of violence.
Dr. Renschler, sworn: I mado an ex
amination of tho child, und found no
external marks but a slight excoriation
on tho templo, as largo as a new penny;
afterwards, when Dr. Berluchv held an
examination, I noticed tho lungs were
congested. My conclusion as to tho
child's death, nfter tho first cxnmimv
tlon, was by pressure on the cranium;
but after the second examination, 1 con
cluded it was caused by suffocation.
Tho suffocation must havo been sudden;

O. L. Saylor, M. D., sworn: I wit

9th or November ; I observed an open
ing or tho cranium, nn effusion of blood
from tho cranium, and coacrulated blood
in tho heart; tho lungs wero infiltrated
with blood, darker thou In a healthy

ulated condition of tho blood were in.
dlcntions that death had taken placo
Daniel Stauffer, recalled: The flannel
was wrapped loosely about tho child :
tho upper part of its head was open ; 1
was ttio llrst who took tho flannel off:
the flannel was not wrapped tight
around tho body; tho head was not
completely covered ; the flannel would
not go around it twice.
David Davis, recalled: I asked tho

Anothor Mining Horror.
IIazleton. Dec. 18. A terrible ml-
nine aScidontoccurredthls mornlngntfi
o'clock, at the village of Stockton, near
this placo. At tho hour namou tuo,coui-
munlty was startled rrom siumot-r y
n loud nolso,' caused by tho caving In of
slopoNo. lorLIndcrmaii ASkcer'sconl
mine. Upon parties hurrying to tho
seenolt was discovered that two double
dwelling houses, Nos. !1, 1, 5 and 0 had
been carried down with tho enormous
masses of" earth that filled tho shaft and
Stochton lsnsmall vlllago situated on
tho Hazleton branch of tho Lehigh Val
ley Railroad, two miles distant from
Hazleton. It contains many ncntiy-
built hous3S and other buildings, tho
Company's stores nnd tho hotel being
the principal structures. Tho Company
employs about twelvo hundred miners,
Who mako this their home. Tho mlno
runs parallel with tho railroad track
through tho mlddlo of tho village.
About fifty feet abovothe placo or this
morniuc's aecldent tho mino caved In
somo years ago; but no dangor or its
happening aguln has slnco been appre
hended. About ten years ago a small
holo was mado by tho falling of tho
earth directly In front of tho ill-fated
The residents of houses Nos. 3 nnd -1,
Mr. Philip Wetheran, his family nnd
boarders, and tho family of Mr. Wm.
Morris and boarders, wero saved from a
terrible death by a singular clrcum
stance. A dog belonging to Jir. wm
MorrUtawoko tho family by its persis
tend howling and barking. Ono of the
men rose for tho purposu of iisccrluin
inc what ailed thonnim.il,w!ien ho dis
covered that tho house was sinking.
Ilo Immediately gavo the alarm, and
tho two families had baiely time to es
cape. Miss Mary Wetheran running
In the wrong direction, roll into the
abyss, but was subsequently rescued by
somo courageous young men. Sho is
somowhat bruised nnd prostrated from
excitement and fear, but will recover.
All of tho residents of houses Nos. 5
nud G lie hopelessly buried lu tho ruins.
They comprise Mr. Schwenk, his wife,
a son of nine teen years, a daughter of
eighteen years, a son of eight years and
an infant. This comprised ono family.
The other consisted of Mr. Isaac Rancli
his mother, wlfo and infant. Tlds makes
a total of ten persons. It is reported
that somo men were In the mino at tho
tlmo of tho accident, and if so all nro
undoubtedly dead. But tho report is
very doubtful, and cannot bo traced to
any reliablo nuthority. So far It has
been imposslbio to reach tho dead bod
ies of tho victims. Tho cave is seventy
live reet wido and sixty feet deep, and
us tliostoves in tho houses setfiro to tho
woodwork tho entire cavity Is now a
burning nnd smoking mass. The Pion
eer, No. 1 flro engine of Hnzelton was
soon on tho ground, and mado every
exertion to extinguish tho fire, iu tho
hope that somo or tho persons in tho
cave might bo saved. There was not
however, tlioraintcst probability or any
being alivo ono hour nfter tho accident
took place, ns all wero buried by the
rallen earth with frightful effectiveness
Trains are running from Hazleton
every hour to tho sceno of tho disaster,
and will continue to do so until all tho
bodies arerecovered,whIch will be somo
time yet ns it is still dangerous to enter
on tho work ot rescuo .because of tho
earth's still continuing to fall In and
thus enlarge the cavity continually.
Tho excitement is very great and Is
increasing. Families in tho vicinity aro
moving out of their houses, fearing that
theirs will fall iu next. It is tho gen
oral opinion other houses will fall in.
Thero is also dangor of tho mines tak
ing fire. Messrs. LIndcrmau and Skeer
arrived at tho scene or tiio dl-aster this
nrtemoon. They nro sparing no pains
to secure tho bodies as speedily as possible.
