Complete official returns from Kentucky uivo McCreery, Democrat, n majority of !!ii,139 for Governor. Tho Legislature stands Democrats 'JO, Kcpublicans 10. Tho Repub lican candidate for Governor, Ocn.

Whatever other people may think about him or however moral people may regard such characters as he, tho yankces aro cer tainly ready to worship him. He is "smart" in moro ways than one, and that is the sum of all merit with them. A great deal of fault has been found with Old Probabilities on account of so much rain. Grant cacapes blame, becauso ho h not supposed to meddlo much with water. But tho Louisville Courier-Journal accounts for tho)heavy wet by saying: "Tho truth is that a kind Providence, in answer to millions of prayers sent up during tlio past seven years, is making a protracted and determin ed eflbrt to put a stop to playing tho gamo known as baso ball. Hon. Horaco liinney died in Philadelphia on the 12th inst. He was born in that city January 4, 1780, and was therefore in tho 96th year of his ago at death. Ho was ad. initted to tho bar in March, 1800, and was a member of tho Legislature in 180G-7. Ho' was also a leading member of Congress from 1833 to 183.r). Ho was a gentleman of high character and much Philadelphia distinc tion. Ho filled many positions of important public trust, and was always held in tho highest esteem in his native city. Tlio Stato board of pardons is growing rapidly into a sort of Imrlcsquo court, whero sympathy instead of proof of Innocence voids punishment. Tho lawyer witli a peek of tears stands no chance with his adversary of n bushel. Maudlin strains despoil justico of her attributes. It gives lawyers an addi tional field for splendid fees, forms a sort of rogue's harbor, and relieves tho Governor of just responsibility and somo unpleasant labor, and thero tho functions of tills board of mercy cease. It is not necessary forus to have discussion witli tho Philadelphia Commonwealth about tho strength of epithets. No doubt any gentleman .will despiso "shabby" tricks as much as blackjacks, and of such tho Urio Convention will bo largely composed just Bcallawags enough in it to attract attention, unless it shall wisely and bravely voto tho most obnoxious of them out, including Hill. Dimmick and a considerable! number from Philadelphia. Wo have issued in supplementary form the speech of Hon. Franklin II. Gowan, beforo the legislative committee charged with tho investigation of tlio truth of certain allegations mado against tho Phil adelphia and Heading railroad company. It is a speech of rare power and literary abili ty, and will bo profitably and eagerly read by those interested in the subject. Of courso we issue It as an advertisement. It receives an extensivo circulation all tho Philadel phia papers containing it in their regular columns and all the county papers issuing it In tho supplementary form. It may also bo had in pamphlet form upon application to tho railroad company. 'o Coroner to Meet. Tho nomination of Mr. Isaiah Yeagcr for Coroner, by tlio Democratic county conven tlou lost week, was a mistake. Thoroisnu Coroner to elect at this time, 0. G Murphy, Esq., of Cenlralia, (whero, by-the-way, they need Coroners) having been elected last November and commissioned for three years. Thero was no disposition to take oil' tho gallant Squire olhcial head, but tho im pression erroneously prevailed that ho had not lifted his cominIsiion,aud hence tho new nomination. Under tho circumstances wo of courso tako Mr. Yeagcr'a namo from tho ticket. Mortliern Pacific I tall road. This road, with all its privileges, franchis es and property, was hold hist week, in New York, to a "committco of bondholders," for 1190,000. As tho sale was on mortgage, all its debts, bonds nnd stock aro now wiped out, and the small tiumbcr of stock and bond holders represented in tho purchasing com inlttco aro the only ttpes who will reap any benefit from tho sale. Thero are, also, largo bodies of western lands, appropriated by thq government to tho company, to bo Hold In September, but those will bo gobbled up by tho committee mentioned at a nominal price, Tho proccfdings upon tlio wholo will wipo out all claims against tho company and pans tho road with all its property into tlio linnih of tho few men who compose tho firm of Jay Cooke A Co., and their friends and partners, 3'coplo heroaboutH who own bondi may re volve a few rents upon them, but that is the but they can hope for iSfnto Treasurer. 1'ioni oxohaiij.-.' wo learn that In caso of tho itomliiation of a western man for Gov crnnrby tho Krlo convention, Hon.

'ilier rcimtatlon for lntegrlly, or mnie deserving of such n Jmark of Dcmociallo favor. Always a most rellahlo Democrat and ever literally nwbcol linrso for his party, and proverbially modest, ho nuvcr pushed himself forward for posi tion, and Is now well stricken in years with little of this woil Vt poll' to sootlio his declin ing days or ensure him against tho common needs of life. One of thoso faithful Demo crats who sacrificed themselves to promote Mr. Iltielinnnn to tho VresUlency, ho was left with nearly all otlicrlinm-working, unselfish friends ol that utisympathblng statesman, who worked for him in season and out of season, to make their way as best they could against tho open and secret enemies they mado by tho ardor and warmth with which they pressed his cause. While such as l"oru ey and hundreds of others fell from this cause, Sanderson remained firm as adamant in tho support of Democratic principles Cold neglect by tho successful chieftain nei ther soured him, nor (.cut him to tho ranks of tho enemy, nor, iiouting, to nu attitudo of iiidillerenco to cither personal friendship or Democratic success. On tho other hand, ho remained as firm a Democrat as ever and as faithful a personal friend to Mr. I'.iichnnau as that distinguished (statesman possessed. If tho taller has fricniN now who hold him in grateful remembrance or patriotic rcgaid they cannot better show it than by assisting to confer tho high honor suggested upon his over faithful and vigorous friend, Geo. San derson. Republics should not bo ungrateful, nor should tho friends of distinguished Re publican statesmen. Wo bclievo Mr. Sanderson never held any olliri.ll position except that of Mayor of Lancaster. In that ho discharged his duties most creditably nnd honorably, as ho would in tho position of SUto Treasurer. If an eastern candidate bo nominated for Govern or, of eourso Mr, Sanderson will bo with drawn as a candidate for Treasurer, Were the convention to nominate him for Govern or there would bo no occasion to growl about it. Tho Rapacious Maw of Corporate Monopoly Still Yawning. "The Heading railroad company has mado a proposition "to furnish tlio forty or moro f i , , , , ii. i . i . mrnaces now out oi mast aiong me jicuuing railroad and branches, with all tho iron ore, liinestono and coal, and to take tho product off their hands, paying for tho iron a reason able profit on tho cost of manufacture. Tho proposition, it is said, is boing responded to favorably by tho iron establishments, and there is a fair probability of all tho furnaces being again in blast within a reasonable time." The Reading railroad company has already obtained a complete control and monopoly of tho vast coal business of tho Schuylkill region, and now cssayH to obtain similar power over tho production of iron in that quarter. Of the success of its entcr- prizo wo suppose there is no question. Of tlio propriety of converting tins grand onco perfectly freo country into a land of monop oly wo aro glad thero is yet much diifcrenco of opinion. When it is probably too late tho people will possibly wako up to tho im portance of the Jacksonian Democratic doc trine on tho subject, and they will then, too, if not sooner, wako up to tho fact that all tho legislation of tlio Itcpnblican party that could infiuenco the subject has been directed to tho creation of monopolies, in a manner to abstract all power possiblo from tho peo ple, whom it has taxed and robbed, and robbed nnd taxed, witli a promiscuous pro fusion that has rendered tlio terms insepara ble if not symonjiuons in meaning. Tho mighty giant, tho freeman's morally unre strained Kilt, ono of thesa days will wako up to find himself bound hand and foot, nnd by every hair of his head, through tho multi farious machinations of tho Republican party and its iutcrminablo chain of rings. Tho starting of the furnaces is a good thing, but they will never rid themselves from the grasp of tlio monster that embraces them until that day of doom, suroto come, when tho overloaded corporations must bo crushed to earth by thoir own weight. As illustrative of Reading railroad designs, hero is an nnccdoto related to us : An intellectual looking gentleman in a passenger car of tho company observed a boy Felling matches. Calling tho lad to him ho inquired, kindly: "How much do you mako in nday Belling matches?" "Sometimes ten cents, sonio twenty, and sometimes oven thirty cents, when I have good luck." "Well, my lad," benevolently replied tho gentleman, "mako all you can this month; I am tho President of this railroad company and on tho first of next month, it is proper to inform you, wo will assume this business ourselves!'' Moral the Reading railroad company is a hugo Anaconda that swallows nil tho gamo that comes in lis reach. Wo did not know that political lightning had struck anywhere outside of Iiloomsburg, until wo saw tho announcement in the last Berwick Independent that Capt. John It.4 Yohc, of Mitllin, was a volunteer candidate for Associate Judge. Tho valorous Captain was the regular Democratic nominco for tho position five years ago, but between a dislike of tho practices by which ho obtained a nom ination and a falluro to dlscorn his merits and qualifications, the Democracy could not bo very unanimously rallied to his support, and therefrom a dwiblo oonscnicnco liaa re sulted, to wit: tho Captain was then defeat ed and has now grown nanguinary. What other gravo consequence ro to follow wo are too modest to undertake to foretell, and nil that is miro about it is that ho can at any. time treat all his Democratic supporters to a rldo in a sluglo omnibus. It is not our busi ness to interfere- with the tastes of tlio Re publicans, and if they chooso to adopt him as a candidate we will charitably wish them joy of their morsel. Had tleir leaders been in smart as they think themselves they would Imve seen to his election five years ago, but that is beyond their power now and would result only to their own discredit if they conld succeed. Hut, gentlemen of tho Republican per Hiiaslou, do not let tho forlorn Captain "go it alono" trot out a volunteer for Commission er. You like that business of supporting volunteers you now have two chances on thq Commissioner question where there is usually only one, preserve your consistency, and out with a volunteer. No craftsman was over In greater need of a tool than you are Just now, and at no time could ono be used moro wisely ho could so nicely savo tlio board from being marred by tho presenco of a Republican I Do not wosto your ambi tion upon tho baro election of John It. Yohe to an Associato Judgeship I Uravo all fortune ut onco! Assessors who have failed to post up an alphabetical list of voters in their various district nro llublo to a penalty of ono hun dred dollars for tbrlr failure, llarltaiifl ami Temperance. When John 1'. llartraull was a candidate for Governor In 1S7'2, tho "liquor league" of this State suddenly turned Into his support, and In a brief tlmo It was ascertained that the leaders of the Republican party had mado n solemn engagement not only to pre vent future legislation in hostility to tho sale and use of liquor as a beverage, 4)iit also agreed that they as n party would throw nolni pediment In tho way of the repeal of tho lo cal option law. They In fact promised to repeal that law, If they should possess the power, Tho leaders thus pledged themselves personally, but of courso could not pledgo their party followers. To this arrangement Mr. Hartranft gave Ids consent, tho consid eration fur nil which being that tho liquor league was to support Hartranft for Gover nor. After ho became Governor, not n word did ho or his personal counsellors, including all the leading Republican politicians, utter against tho repeal of tho local option law. When tho repeal bill passed tho Legislature tho Tcmperiinco men unanimously protested against tho Governor signing it. Thoy were joined in this by tho clergy men of the Meth odist church then assembled in coiifcrcuco at Huntingdon. Their resolution of pro test passed, wo believe, unanimously. Most of tho clergy of tho State joined in tho pro test, or were known to bo opposed to repeal All this formidable array of protest hail no More weight and received no more consideration than thouijh it had come from so many prat tling boys who had not yet trusted themsilecs beyond the mother's apron string. The reason was obvious Gov. llartranlVs hands wero lied tlio pledge to tho "liquor league" duro not bo broken. Ho signed tho repealing lull and local option became a thing of tlio past, without giving it tho decent respect of a sec ond judgment of tho people at the ballot box. We make no prctenco that the Democracy aro a tempcranco party. That party believes in leaving all moral questions to lie deter mined by moral means. It is ngainst nil leg islation that interferes with personal desires, except so far as is necessary to restrain men from doing bodily injury to each other or wrong to each other's properly or rights. It passes nnd sustains no sumptuary laws nnd in no wiso invades tho domestic circle. It leaves moral means to accomplish moral ends. It believes in God's power to control His people. As to moro earthly (political) affairs it assumes to control only so far as is absolutely necessary. It believes that tho less the pcoplo aro governed (politically) the better. It oppresses no ono and intrudes upon no one. It is a party of political rights and proprieties and refuses to go be youd these. Tho Republican party lias different prin ciples. It pretends to reach all tho wants of humanity and to accomplish by legislation all that can be hoped for from morals. It would control every individual at tho will of its leaders and dictato to him if it could whether he should tako his provender witli a spoon or a fork, and when ho should tako meat and when mush, or neither or both, and as to either quantity or quality. In other words, it essays tho right to control men by legislation in whatever it chooses to control to dictato morals and tastes, as well as tho exercise of rights or tho pursuit of pleas ure or profit. While the Democratic party, therefore, de nies that questions of morals are proper sub jects of legislative direction, the Republican party assumes to dictato by that means in all that relates to human existence. These generalities explain why tho Democracy havo no responsibility in connection with tempcranco legislation and why tho Repub lican party is responsible. Tho latter party promised its aid and support to tho Temper ance cause, but in the supremo hour of trial, Gov. Hartranft turned his back upon his party principles to give victory to anti- tcmpcrance, because, for tho consideration of a few thousand votes, ho had secretly pledged himself to do bo! Thero was infamy in that act becauso it embraced treachery the be trayal of friends and the betrayal of a cause. It was corrupt becauso treacherous, dono in secret, without tho knowlcdgo of tho main body of his supporters, and for personal and selfish ends. Tho bargain was a baso ono in all its phases. Under thoso circumstances is it any won der that honest Tempcranco Republicans set up Republican candidates of their own way of thinking and sternly repudiate Hart ranft? Why should Republican editors nbuso them for refusing to support a candi date who bargains with their leading ene mies for their votes, and supplies the power to defeat and repeal their f.ivorito laws ? Hartranft has proven himself tho enemy of a principle these men hold dear, and ho has treated them and their petitions with utter contempt. If they havo the spirit of "frco raen who know their rights and dare main tain them," they will repudiate Gov. Har tranft at the ballot box. A curious fight is maintained against giv ing our Susquehanna salmon their proper name, that by which they havo been called over sinco they havo been known. Tho most recent effort wo notico in a legal pro ceeding at Sunbury, whero they are describ ed as "pike-perch," a sort of elephant-mustard arrangement. Tho Sunbury American enlightens us witli tho information that "tho court decided it had no jurisdiction," but whether this decision applied to tho offence charged or especially to "piko-pcrch," its readers are left sadly in tho dark. "Pike perch" is decidedly good, but why not call him a salmon-eel? Man is sometimes do scribed as "a quadruped that walks erect," and at others as a "biped without feathers." Doubtless cither will answer tho purposo of description, yet tho animal in question is not a quadruped and ho is not tho only biped that Is fcatberlesB. Upon tho saino princi ple why is it not proper to double up tho names of two other varieties of fish and ap ply them In tho singular number to another that you do not wish to call by its right namo? Tho last effort on the northern line, that camo under our notice, to change tho namo of tlio Susquehanna salmon, was to call him an Otsego bass, becauso somo kind of white fish is found in Otsego lake that bears n rescmblanco to him. Even wero tho fish identical it would bo difficult to sco why Otsego should havo preference to Susque hanna, or why tho namo of tho mushy bass should bo used in preference to that of tho flakcy salmon, which latter the flesh of our Susquchauua salmon so exactly resembles except that It is not of a roscato color when boiled. "Pickerel" has at last taken its op proprlate plaeo among tho meaningless vul garities and is no longer put forward as an example of yankco ingenuity in discovering fugitive words, Como down, nnd let tho noblest nnd rarest of our Susquehanna fish enjoy his namo the baptismal of hU locality ami tho surnaino of his species, Tho Ohio Democrats aro confident of vic tory. Thus tho Cincinnati JCinjuirer says: "It is unnecessary to arguo tlio question, Tho election of Allen is conceded by tho most Intelligent men In this end of tho Stato, Against him thero aro no wngers worth taking" Tlio lli'iiiixiMlle llulir-riiiitorial Nomination. As tho fill county conventions are being held, delegates at o nlso being rapidly up polntrd to tho Krlo convention, A largo majority go without Instructions. Chester gavo unanimous Instructions for R. 1', Moil nghan, of that county, who mado a thrilling speech in return, from which wo may mako extracts hereafter. Judgo Ross, of Montgomery county, has recently been looming up into prominence as n competitor for tho nomination, but his own county elected four out of six delegates who are for Dr. 12. 1. Acker, of tho samu county. Col. Noycfi has carried several of the north western counties unanimously, nnd will ex hibit considerable strength at Krlo. He Is also prominently mentioned for Stato Treas urer. Ho is just now moro interested in saw logs and lumber than In delegates. Indiana, Venango and some other counties have instructed for Gov. lllglcr. Judgo Drehcr will havo somo strength in tho northeastern counties. Judgo Pershing will have Schuylkill, Cambria and somo oth or counties in thoso localities. D. M. h'ox will havo a majority of the Philadelphia dolegates, nnd a largo number of scrub can didatcs havo obtained instructions in the counties whero they reside. Possibly somo ono not yet named may carry off the honor at line. It will bo tho duty of the Krlo convention to nominate tho fit candidate who can obtain tho most votes at tho election, mid tho dele- gates should scorn to cat their votes selfish ly or in tho interest of faction. A gravo re sponsibilily rests on tho gentlemen who havo been elected delegates and no doubt is enter tained that generally at least they will dis charge their duties in nu honorable and man lyway. Tho Democrats of Centre county have nominated Hon. P. Gray Meek, tlio vigilant and nblo editor of tho liellefonto Watchman, for Stato Senator, to succeed Hon. W. A Wallace. Although violently opposed Mr, Meek was unanimously nominated by tho convention of his county. Ono of his oppo ncnts went even to tho extent, probably by tho instigation of others, ot committing an assault upon him by striking him while writing a telegraphic despatch. As Meek is neither tall nor broad, and wo suspect could not turn a scalo ngainst a hundred pound weight, a moro cowardly act could scarcely bo imagined. Tho fellow who did it narrow ly escaped mobbing by taking himsolf out of tho way. Tlio excitement and general feel ing of resentment was intense. Kxccpt for the fact that somo of our old friends in Clin ton (among tlio best of counties) aro candi dates, Meek ought to bo nominated in tho district. He is n brilliant star and (except physically) is an aggrossivo and successful warrior. Though not an orator ho is a very active, efficient and experienced legislator. Every Democrat should bear in mind that any ono who now attempts to produco or pro mote discord, by fomenting opposition to or prejudico against Democratic candidates or ngainst active members of the party, means injury to tho party itself and is probably do ing it moro harm than if ho wero an open enemy. At tho next election tlio Democrats will need every voto for their Stato ticket that they can possibly poll, nnd to this end cntiro harmony should prevail, so that the energies of every ono can bo directed to ac. quiring every possiblo voto for tho Stato ticket. As wo said last wcek,whcn an army is on tho eve of a great battlo it is no time to collect beef bills from tho individual soldiers. Government Lands Gone. It is an open question whether, under tho rule of the Republican party, all of tho pub lie lands belonging to tho United States havo not been appropriated. If not, tho balanco will bo swallowed up within a very brief period, nnd this will bo tho end of cheat lands for the rising population of tho future United States.

If tho Treasury manage ment In Pennsylvania was honest that por tion of our Sinking Fund which doos nut consist of railroad securities would bo regu larly Invested In Stato or United States bonds, Thero Is no law to provent It and it needs no law to authorise It. There Is no law to authorise tho deposit of Stato funds In prlvato banks without interest, yet It Is dono without warrant of law nnd to tho detriment of tho public Interest.

Elsewhero will bo found tho statement of Auditor General Temple, showing tlio tax payers whero State Treasurer Mackcy keeps tho public funds. Mackey's own bank, tho Alleghany National, at Pittsburg, lias nearly three hundred thousand dollars, and a concern in Philadelphia, termed tho People's Rank, owned by Itill Kembloand his Pilgrim Ring has three famdaed and screnty-two thousand dollars. Thero aro no moro "scaly" institu tions in tho United States than tho two just named: compel them to pay over to the Stato what thoy owe and they aro bankrupt, Tho largo balanco of from one to two mil lions of dollars, which has been kept in tho State Treasury for tho past twelve years, has been used by tho treasury ring for banking purposes, and tlio members of this Pilgrim ring have coined millions out of this bank ing capital, and not ono dollar of these larce profits have been returned to tho Stato trcas' u ry. To know that this huge palpablo fraud has been successfully perpetrated upon tho tax payers of Pennsylvania for a dozen of years gives cvidonco of tho moral depravity nnd commercial dcadness of tho people, who, in a single day, could turn every robber out without firing a gun. Clearfield Ilepublican Three Remarkable Things. It is remarkablo that no Republican newspaper ventures to defend or deny tho complicity of Governor Hartranft in tho robbery of tho Sinking Fund, without an thority of law, in defianco of a constitution al prohibition, and against the tenor of his official oath. It is no less rcmnrkablo that no Republi can newspaper bos ventured to defend Gov ernor Hartrant's veto of tho fee bill, a mea sure mado necessary by tho now Constitu tion, which cut down tlio enormous salaries of certain Republican officials in tho State. Tt is equally remarkablo that no Republi can paper has explained his approval of tho repeal of tlio Sinking Fund act of 1S70, which mado it necessary for tho Stato Treas urer to report to tho Auditor General tho names of tlio corporations and persons with whom tho public moneys were deposited once every month. Under tho law approved by Governor Hartranft, May 9, 1871, the un restrained custody of tlio moneys in tho Sinking Fund is given to the Stato Treasu rer, without any knowledge or assurance Lupon tho part of any other officer of tho Stale that such moneys arc safely or properly bestowed. l'atriot.

Rldgeway has held for tho last twelve years there would bo a buzz in tho Radical ring hivo that would bo refreshing, Thero nro many other sums in the list a demand for which would raiso a war in tho ring family. Yet upon tho largo amount of money theso Radical ring pets hold averaging two millions of dollars the people are required to pay the annual inter est in cash, This is why it is necessary to tax coal, and to toll every bushel of wheat tho farmer sells, or dollar's worth of store goods ho buys (ly tax on tho gross receipts of railroads,) Tho pcoplo pay tho Radical treasury ring reaps tho fruits, and tho above loss of fl 1,000 will bo paid by tho pcoplo, taken indirectly from tho taxes Imposed up on nnd paid by them. FitAcrioNAi, Cuiuu:nct, It is supposed that a largo percentage, perhaps ono-foutlh of the fractional currency has been destroyed by various accidents, and the government will doubtless gain a considerable sum by tho failure, neglect or Inability of tho tran sient owners of this portion of Its paper is sues to return them for redemption. It is probable that ten or twelvo millions of dol lars may ho realized by tho national treasu ry In this manner, but of all forms of rais ing money this is ono of the most discredit able. It exposes tho pcoplo to a great deal of inconvenience and final loss mainly through a neglect of tho government to per form what is ouo of its most important functions in ordinary times tho colnago of small denominations of metallic money to servo as a circulating medium for all tho small transactions of tho community, Tho government thus profits by its own money, nt tho expenso of tho people, lltehunye, j Thai the Hulled Nate t tire to havo this year an abundant cmp of corn, nil reports iui.no, An Increased niTcagO of eight per cent, lias In en planted, mid tlio crop (al though backward in thoipring)U now get ting on finely and promlf.es n good yield. Tho cautious Agricultural Department re port for July Indicates almost an average yield of corn, and siueo tho data upon which that report Is based were collected tho con ditions in nearly nil parts of tlio country have been extremely favorablo for Increasing thoyleldl Willi cheap nnd abundant food, tho facilities for fattening beef nnd pork will bo Increased, thus giving cheap provis ion'. We may thcroforoantlelpalcan abund ant stock for tho coming season, nnd In ad dition to bread stuffs, can consequently spare largo quantities of pork, beef, lard, butter, eheeno and other similar nrtlcles for our cus tomers in Europe, and thus equalize tho ex changes, which will go further towards Im proving the finances than alt tho pet notions of tho fancy financiers.

Tlio Washington administrators have succeeded in extiiiguisl ing one million two hundred thousand dollars of our "national blessing" during tho monll; of July; so Radical newspapers inform ns, Dining the samo period tho pcoplo paid hit tho treasury over three millioni of c.rlra ta.ccs under tlio March tax law, the proceeds o which wero to bo "applied to tho extinguis! incut of the public debt." Well, this is peculiar way of extinguishing that blessing, lo givo our agent S3 to pay on a note of $21, and ho succeeds in having only $1.12 en uorscd thereon, look? Iiko slow redemption yet this is tho way our agcnla do business nt Washington. Clearfield Ilepublican. Tho London 27mm, in its obituary articlo on Andrew Johnson, says his career illus trates both tlio strong nnd weak points of tho American social and political systems.

Ho had courage, somo political insight, and honesty never shadowed by suspicion. The report of tho Allegheny couuty dele' gates to tho Temperance convention at Al toona contains this sentiment : Wo hopo to hear no moro of this wailing cry, you will break up tho Republican party or you ought to preservo tho Republican party, but hope to sco every ono couvinccd that the Republican party, liko the brazen Bcrpcnt, having accomplished nil tho good it ni iiiiunutjii iu, uuu iiuviiiir now oecouio ail r :.!!, l.i" i... i iii.juiyi. iuui.ii.ruua mjrsiup uv iimiirry 01- fico seekers, should now be destroyed ns lnju- iiuus iu me uuat imururuj oi our country. Worked Ovmt. Stato Superintendent Wiekcrsham succeeded in saving $3,000 to tlio Stato Treasury last week, by frightening tho school directors of McICcau county into rcasonablo measures. Thoso directors, in May last ot their triennial convention, raised tlio County Superintendent's salary to $2,000 A movement on tho part of the Stnto author ities, similar to Sheridan's Louisiana affair. persuaded tho directors to ro-assemblo nnd undo their May job so far as tlio salary was concerned, which by a vote of 08 to 10 was reduced to $1,000.

Morgan's Son, Middlemen cannot beany more safely Iru-tcd with the management of money than with transactions in irain, K1, tic and other ngiicnlttiral merchandise. The Louisville GjuniT-Joiirwi thinks "if (rood sene prevails over partisan recklessness theso, gcslion of Senator Thurnian will be followed, and the question of national finances will 1 laid afulo as one of thoso questions affecting tlio biiiiness prosperity of tho country which Congress should bo allowed to handle undistiirl cd by coiiderations of party feeling and party discipline." Republican papers !oast that no defalcation is found In tho Slate Treasury. Mackey has had ever sinco List winter to put his accounts in shape, lint why did ho deny thoUouso Investi gating Committco and their expert access to Ids books several months ago? It won't do to say that they had not the proper authority. If his accounts were all right, why not allow anybody to look at them 1 The matter had a suspicious appcaraiico at the time, ami has yet. Tho old Know Nothing leaders in Daltlmore, mainly Custom-homo and Post-offico officials, aro trying to revive that defunct order. It is the only dodge left them, and will amount to nothing but defeat and discomfit lire, as it did before. Tho Radical papers say that John Morriscy, tho gambler, has risen above thoDemocracy and been kicked out of the Tammany organisation, When Tammany had him it was abuacd for keep ing him, and when it discards him it is abused for letting him go. Excluding the- interest on the public debt, the coot of the Grant management to the country is $270,000,000 for tho year ending Juno ,10th This is nt (lie rate of over three quarters of a million dollars per day. Is it any wonder tho people complain? Thero is ono noticeable feature in Senator Morton's Urbana speech. Ho failed to bestow any personal abuse on Gov, Allen, Uu tried that two yearn ago, and with a single speech Gov, Allen drovo him out of the Statu, Morton has profiled by experience. Tho Kriu OUscntrmy Mr, Rawle the Pilgrim candidate for State Treasurer as-sures Ids old tlmo democratic friends that ho Is "not much of arc publican." Thef.tct thnthoUlhorhigcaiiill date proves that he h "not much of a democrat." I fo makes no claim to bo much of atcmperanco man, in tact .Mr, Jtnwlo ilocsn t seem to bo much of anything. Senator Morton, last winter, spoke of green backs as "b.iltlu born." Yes they weru used to pay tlio soldiers' orphnni nnd widows, but now according to the Republicans, Iho "battlo born" greenbacks are "rug babies," "shnin money," and "nnllonal lien," Tliislsingrnllliidulothelr own bantling.
