TO OUR FRIEND3 AND RKADER3:
Wo havo sold tho Columbian to Hen

nml havo turnod over to him Its nuso
Into control and mamtgomont. Onr pa
trons will soon Ulscovor that tho paper
has passed Into most competent and ro
Uablo hands, and wo must congratulato
them, as wo do oursclf, upon thochango
of ownership und control, Wo havo
not been nblo always to fjivo to tho pa
per our whole mind and attention, and
It has forsomo tlmo been ourdestroto
sovcr our connection with It In order to
devoto ourbclf wholly to our profession
nl business. Realties, tho recent Con
Kressional nomination at Tunkbanuock
rendered it proper if not Imperative
that wo should withdraw or withhold
oursclf from odltorial labor during tho
present canvass. But wo were unwil
ling to pa?3 tho paper Into unsafo orun
known hands, and thercforo hesitated
In tho acceptanco of offers of purchaso
inadoto us until tlintof Mr. DielTenbach
was presented. We feel now that ex
actly tho proper arrangement has boon
mado to satisfy all our friends -und to
insure the future of tho Columbian.
Wo cannot retiro from tho manage
mcnt of this journal without expressing
our thanks to tho friends who havo
stood by U3 in our experiment (for such
It was) in journalism, or without bid
dlug our readers in general a most sin
cero and friendly farowcll. For tho
cordial sympathy at all times, extended
to us, wo can but return our warmest
thanks, nnd wo shall look back upon
our experience as n Journalist with
pleasure and satisfaction. o. ji. B,
Star of tho Bast.
Who does not well remember, when
tlio Democracy of tho whoio country,
looked toward tho stato of Maino as tho
"Star in tho East" giving harbinger of
coming party triumphs? But for years
tiio eyes of the democracy were not blest
with its rising rays. Tho black pall of
Radicalism eclipsed its shining. But
tho dawn is breaking. Wo learn by
that superb paper tho Maine Standard,
edited by Gov. Plllsbury, whom our
citizens well remember, that on tho
election of Sept. 12th, tho democracy
gain at least 10,000 votes, and havo car
ried the counties of Knox and Lincoln,
and probably Aroostook, whilo wo only
fall of electing a Democratic Senator in
tho proverbially black county or Andro
scoggin by 73 votes.
Bangor, tho homo of Roberts, shakes
off radicalism and pronounces In favor
of tho gallant soldier by tfio handsomo
majority of C01, a gain from last year
of 1143. She sends thrco truo-bluo dem
ocrats to represent her In tho Legisla
turo this winter. Lewiston startles
radicalism and makes tho dry bones
rattie,by giving a majority of 70, against
a radical majority of 48C la3t year,
Portland elects two democrats and two
Chamberlain republicans. Watervillo,
Wlnthrop, Richmond, Ac, mako gains
of representatives, and democrats ev
erywhere aro strengthened and entour
aged by tho result of Monday.
JO.ll Should Work.
In less than three weeks tho contest
in this Congressional District will bo
over, and in that short interval every
man who ha3 tho Interests of bis party
at stake must do somo work, Capt,
Brockway cannot mako tho fight alono.
Tho people en masse should rally around
him. no has not tho wealth his oppo
nent can command, nor has ho a hordo
of postmasters and offlco-lioUlera to do
bis bidding. For this reason tho poo
plo should accord him agenerous, hearty
support, nnd mako his cause theirs.
Mercur on Minority Representation
Many of our Republican friends aro
In favor of Minority Representation,
and nmong them aio Bradley and Whlt
inoyer, delegates to tho lato Convention
at Reading, tho object of which was to
secure that reform . When tho bill was
-introduced Into Congress to apply that
principle to tho Territories, Mercur
voted NO. How then, can tho friends
of that reform voto for him ?
The Columbian in accordance with
usago and propriety has taken no part
this year in any controversy upon any
district or county nomination. Non
interference with tho making of npml
nations must always precede an indo
pendent and Influential support of them
by tho press after .thoy aro mado. But
our nominations nro now complete.
Tho ticket is mado full by tho Congres
sional nomination at Tunkhannock,
and it becomes tho duty of Democrats
to put asldo all past differences and
unite In Its support, and the duty of tho
press In particular to defend it ugalnst
an unjust opposition.
Tho opinion has been frenuentlv ox
pressed in this Journal that our rules of

Tho lVXurdor Trials.
At our rccont court two cases of inter
est wero tried hi tho Oyer nnd Termi
ner, both from Conynghnni township,
upon tho Schuylkill border, vory brief
ly noticed In tho report of Court pro
ceedings in our last number.
Case of Richard Pai.muii: This
defendant was Indicted for tho killing
of John Philips, nt Locust Dale, In Ju
ly Inst, by Hhoottng htm with n pistol.
Threo shots wero llred, tho last ono bo
ing fatal. Tlm shooting occurred nbout
2 o'clock In the morning, and tho evi
dence did not clearly show tho causo or
origin of tho dlfllculty between tho par
tics, who had boon previously on friend
ly terms. Philips boarded with Pal
mer and canto homo from Ashland a
Httlo aftor midnight ; Palmer who had
also been out, returned sometime later.
Tho latter nllcdgcd that upon his return
ho found his wife and Philips in crimi
nal intercourse in tho front room of tho
houso; that Iiopursucd them upstairs,
seized his pistol, struck Philips, and
pursuing him from tho houso aud along
tho street, fired tho shots In question.
Tho nolso in tho houso and tho screams
of tho wlfo aroused a neighbor woman
and her daughter, who saw tho latter
part or tho transaction. A fow min
utes after tho third shot (which inflict
ed tho fatal wouud) Palmer camo up to
whero Philips was prostrate by tho sido
of tho street with soveral persons pres
ent and attempted to flro again, declar
ing the reason for shooting Philips to bo
tho dcbauclimcnt of his wife. Philips
mado no answer to Palmer's accusation
though it appeared ho was conscious,
but after Palmer had left, In reply to n
question of "what all this was about,"
said, "It was nbout nothing."
Tho counsel for tho Commonwealth
insisted that upon tho facts It was a caso
of murder, nnd asked a conviction of
tho defendant for that crime. Aud thoy
further sustained their caso by giving
in evidenco tho dying declarations of
Philips reduced to writing by Esq.
Hower, of Ashland. Thero was, how-
over, some other evidence In support
of the defendant's statement of tho
provocation upon which tho homicide
was committed by him, and thero was
an absonco or any apparent motive
other than that allcdgcd by him, for
his conduct. Ho also proved his pos
session of a good character, by respect
After full argument of tho caso by

trict Attorney Ikelcr, and Mr. Ilaugh-
awout, of Ashland.

Freeze, Buckalow and Bryson.
Case op Lewis Kantneb : This
defendant was charged in soveral
counts of tho indictment against him
with tho offences of murder and man
slaughter in causing tho death of a
young mnn named Connelly. Kantner
is an engineer upon a branch road or
lateral of tho Reading railroad compa
ny, extending from Ashland to Centra
11a, In this county, and in July last, In
running his ongino called tho "Prince
ton," up grade, with a coal car and
truck in tront, an accident occurred
which caused tho death of Connelly
and Injuries to several others who wero
upon tho truck. It appeared tho grade
was 175 feet to tho mllo, and that tho
engine was running at tho rate of 12 to
15 miles an hour (according to most of
tho witnesses) when an obstruction was
encountered upon tho track near Gor
ell's breaker which throw tho empty
car in front off tho track and against
tho trestllng of tho schute, causing tho
timbers and rubbish or tho latter to
come down upon Connelly and others
who wore upon tho truck. Tho obstruc
tion upon tho track which caused tho
accident, was a plecoot timber or scant
ling six inches wldo by three inches
thick extending across the road 8 to 12
feet below tho breaker. Tho counsel
for tho prosecution insisted that tho on
gineer was running at an unusual rate
of speed and that with reasonable at'
tcntlon and caro ho could have seen tho
obstruction and havo reversed his en
gine in timo to avoid tho accident. It
was also insisted that ho had improp
erly pushed tho car and truck up tho
road instead of leaving them bolow up
on a sw Itch or side track at Anderson's
It was shown however for tho dofenso
that tho rate of speed was not oxtromo
or forbidden by tho rules of tho rail
road company, that tho engineer boro
tho character of n careful man In his
business, and that just beforo tho acci
dent there was a man upon tho track
ahead to whom tho engineer mado sig
nals by sounding his whistlo and ring
ing tho boll of the engine. Tho dofenco
nllodged also that tho pnshlng of tho
car and truck up tho track was propor
under tho circumstances shown ; thnt
tho engineer exercised reasonablo caro.
and that tho presence of a man upon
tho road ahead would naturally divert
