On tho faco of it tho law seems to bo
perfectly fair, but In practice, of late
years, it has resulted in giving urian
imous Republican committees, as wit
iiess tho Lynd, Runn-AVltham, and
m to recently tho Grecn Shortt cases.
For example: excluding contestants,
irtl Dickerson, deceased, tho present

It will not answer to say that this Is
c'lanco ; tho laws of clianco do not run
continually in that rut. Wo venture
tho assertion that a betting man would
wager money that if tho Democrats had

drawing they would havo one-third of

as it is, ho would not stake a dollar,

Wo do not mean to chargo tho officers
of tho present Legislature with unfair
noss, becauso wo liavo no ovldeuco of it ;
but It is at least singular that with
chances so varied, tho results nro uni
formly tho same.
Tho present Legislature met with
many promises of reform, but as yet
not a single ono has boon carried out.
In tho two weoks succeeding tho open
ing of tho session tho Houso met six
times, and did not sit over eight hours
during thoso two weeks. No public
business was dono or attempted to bo
dono (except members voting them
selves a library), and thus tho public
tlmo and money havo been wasted.
As a result, towards tho close of tho
Session public bills, prlvato jobs, &c,
will bo rushed through without consid
eration, and our statuto book will bo
loaded with a mass of illy digested
laws. Tho long delay in getting to
work breeds idleness, and of course cor
ruption, and is in overy respect repre
hensible. In New York it is a subject
of common complaint that tho members
aro getting $3.00 per day, and only sit
four days in tho week. Our Pennsyl
vania Solons get $10.00 per day meet
threo days In tho week, and havo an
average session of about ninety min-
For this result wo hold tho Republi
cans responsible. As they havo a largo
majority, and control tho legislation,
thoy should hasten tho public interests
by constant unci uninterrupted work.
The Democracy insist that General
Grant is a heavy load for tho Republi
can party to carry but what would thoy
give to bo ullowed to bear our burdens V
What would they havo to glvo?
Everything of honor, Justice, regard
for tho lives and liberties of tho people,
respect for tho Constitution and tho
laws, which thpy now havo,'und which
seem to find an abiding placo among
the Democracy alone. It would hardly
bo worth whllo to glvo all theso to ac.
uuiro a power perpetuated by bayonets
and bribery, and to fill tho pockets of
that animated tobacco furnaco who
occasionally visits tho White Houso
when not otlierwlso engaged. Wo'ro
content to let tho Republicans bear
their own burdens, from Grant down
to Forney. Wo may havo tho latter on
our hands again somo day.
The lato Mr. Fisk, it i3 well known,
was no respecter of persons any moro
than of principles, and spako ovll of

veracity that "his four-in-hand usually
"conveyed moro spotted reputations

"the Opera Houso was shunned as If
"infected by all who had any character
"toloso." Has tho Tribune forgotton,
then, that President Gkant was onco
convoyed in that most immaculato
"four-in-hand that Prosidont Grant
sato, evidently fearing no infection aud
no loss, in that lazar-box at "tho Opora
Houso"? Tbo Tribune has commonly
shown Itself strong In tho point of
memory whero politics and political
characters aro concerned, Is thlsalapso?

Tho minora of I'knnbyi.vania In
their continual underground burrowing
aro In n fair way to destroy tho founda

been regarded ns tho keystone of thn

would leave n black void of torrlblo
dimensions, nnd there would bo no
longer n testing placo for tho foot of
tho Ihlck-and.thln protectionist, and no
political weathercock to ludtcato tho

with which tho mining companies
proceed to cut away tho mass of rock
and coal on which farms and villages
rest should bo looked to. Every now

tho cata3tropho Is fatal to miners and
to tho pcoplo who dwell abovo tho
dark caverns In which they toll. A

tion to cut up nnd cart out tho wholo
substratum of tho country, nnd tho
workmen nnd proprietors aro alike
forgetful of tho imrnonso weight above
their heads which must bo left with
somo adequate support. Tho columns
which they leavo for this purposo aro
too often trimmed down until at sorno
unexpected moment they glvo way nnd
lnvolvo horses, machinery, men, aud
buildings In ono ma?s of ruin. Mo3t
cases of tho breaking In of tho mlrios
nro titter .led with llttlolossof any kind,
and hen o thoy attract no attention ;
but nt long Intervals thcro Is n disaster,
and ono of these Is llkoly to occur at

Pennsylvania, If sho cares nothing
for tho security of her soil and tho
stability of her territory, to look after
tho lives of her citizens. Measures nro
very much needed thero which shall
compel tho proprietors of mines to
establish overy safeguard for tho
security of life. Tho subject is broached
every winter in tho Legislature, but
no satisfactory action is taken, and then
nil through tho succeeding season como

A Missouri editor, having nominated
Horaeo Greeley, tho veteran head of tho
Now York Tribune, for tho Presidency,
received tho f illowing pointed nnd slg

My Dear Sin: I havo yours of tho

You only err as to the proper candidate.
I am not tho man you need. Your
party is mostly Frco-trade, aud I am a
ferocious Protectionist. I havo no
doubt that I might bo nominated mid

Wo clip tho following from tho Now
York Tribune in relation to tho scaudal
ous and disgraceful efforts of Grant's
brother-in-law, Casey, to obtain control
of tho Stato Government of Loulsiaaa.
Tho nrticlo neods no explanation ; it
speaks for itself:
Tho Administration party havo no
excuse whatever for their high-handed
and revolutionary course: they charged
conspiracy on Warmoth and his friends,
und procured their arrest for proposing
to uo oxactiy wnat iney uiu tnemscives
consplro to gain possession of tho
legislature, neroisa uoucetor, umtou
States Marshal, and other oillcers of tho
National Government combining nnd
forming a party to selzo tho Stato Gov
ernment, doposa tho Governor, and
" rim tho machino " for their own un
developed purposes. Thero is no nt
tempt to conceal this purpose, no dis
guise of tho motivo for all this hubbub.
It is for such efforts to cxposo tho
frauds aud corruptions of tho Repub
lican party that Horaeo Greeley has
been blackguarded by Administration
journals aud caricatured by tho artists
of Harper's Weekly. Thorois very llttlo
inducement for a man to bo honest in
tho Republican party. All his reward
A bill was recently Introduced In tho
Houso of Representatives in Washing
ton to glvo a right of appeal in habeas
corpus cases from final judgments in U.
S. Circuit Courts to tho Supremo Court
of tho United States. Tho law giving
tho right of appoal was repealed in 18G3
for partisan purposes and this bill looks
to tho ro-onactment of tho law. As tho
rights and liberties of tho peoplo nro af
fected by tho existence of tho law wo do
not feel sanguino as to its ro-enactment
by tho. present Congress whoso chief
duty seems to be to provido for tho ro
election of Grant.
Mutilated Currency. On and

liberal facilities for redemption of mu

In splto of tho Republican promlsoof
reform in tho granting of lands to cor
porations, by Congress, au official state
ment recently submitted, shows that
tho quantity of land which railroad
companies will receive under grants
mado to them reaches tho enormous
sum of 172,709, 130 acres 1 If this Is ro
form wo should llko to know what
tho nmount would havo been without

"It Is a f.dso and foolish notion for
