Among tbe many prominent Democrats
BimeU as prosier candidates for the nomina
tion lor Governor we notice with pleasure
tbe name of John IUla of Westmoreland.
As .1 Senator and member of the House of
representatives at Uarrisburg, he won ad
enviable distinction for statesmanship, abili
ty and honesty. In 1874 he was fleeted
.lieutenant Governor ot the State, and has
performed the duties iinpjssd upon him by
the amended Constitution with credit to the
larty aud the State. His rulings as presid
ing officer oi the Senate have been lair aud
! It should also be remembered that he rep
resents a portiou of the State that is entitled
to more than a passing recognition in future
conventions. Our Democratic gains have
all been made west of the Alleghecies.yet
the east dictated the nominations of Wood'
, ward, Clynter, Packer, lluckalew, and I'er
shlng. With Latta as a candidate for Gov
ernor in 1878 wo could go into the con
test with a reasonable prospect of success.
Packard has done one reasonably decent
thing by tbe expulsion of Pinchback from
the Louisiana Republican organization. The
Packard State committee has formally ex
polled Pinchback by a vote of 22 to 4.
Now, if Wells would just rise up and have
Packard expelled, and then Casey would
turn in and have Wells turned out, and then
Slonaker would tat-e a hand and have Casey
tumbled overboard, and then Kellogg should
tip Bloanaker out of the temple, and then
Pitkin should oust Kelloze, and bo on, un
r til, the whole crew of carpet-bag and scalla
wag plunderers had demolished themselves,
there would be a rather small Republican
party left, but it might be able to prove
, that it's possible for Republicanism and re--t
speclahllity to get within sight of each oth
t , er Id the State. Let the good work proceed.

Fred. Douglass was nominated by Pres
cient Hayes to be Unites! States Marshall for
tb District of Columbia, and the Sen
ate confirmed the nomination. The du
ties ef the office require him to act as
' muter oi' ceremonies at the White House re
ceptions, and to perform the duties of Sheriff
Tor the courts. It pay be that Hayes did
not know that Frederick would have a place
at bis right hand when ho received visitors on
pablio night, but some one else, did know it,
' and there was strong opposition to his ap-
polntiuent to such a'post. Douglass' name is
rather unpleasantly connected with Freed-
men b Dank crookedness,- and a tew other
little jobs, and it looks as though Rutherford
, had made a mistake.

The Young Winnebago Chief.
At the ripe age of throesooro and eighteen
Simon Cameion retires from his chair in the
United States Senate to plot mischief and
play tricks elsewhere. In the go d time com
ing when honest men shall bn in' a majority in
the Senate, and when tho great State of Penn
sylvania snail begin to smash Rings and send
publia thieves to the penitentiary, tho chair
occupied by Simon through all these weary
years will be taken out and burned, to get rid
of tho odor of rottenness which must ever as
cend from it
But for the present, Simon will be succeed
ed by his hopeful son, J. Donald, the young
Chief of the Winncbagos, whose path thus
far has been as tortuous and whoso moccasins
are said to leave as slight a print as his wily
father's. He has been carefully brought up
to regard himself as the hereditary chieftain
of that predatory tribe, and has been educa
ted accordingly. He has been surrounded
from bis earliest youth by tho most expert
and light-fingorcd of his father's people ; and
was employed at a very early age in the man
agement of various attacks upon the public
propertyof tho State. He stands, therefore,
at the head of the Winnebagoe", not merely
in virtue of his natural heirship, but in vir
tue of his approved skill. He will succeed
without the least disturbance. Bob Mackey,
and Bill Kcnibic and Truax, and Rutan and
all the lesser chiefs, whoe lodges are buist-
ing witli plunder, acquired in many raids,
have accepted him with great demonstrations
of joy, and renewed their oaths of perpetual
fealty at ,a mighty feast and war council on
the Susquehanna. Tho tribe has been cau
tiously purged of all opposition to the ruling
There was an old chief, named MoMichael,
who had beeu pretty well battered ia the
wars, and who has long complained of the
unequal divb-ion of the spoils, but he has had
his tongue bored and -been sent about his bu
siness. There was also another fellow named
Forney, who was called the half-chief, and
was never observed in the fight but was al
ways seen elbowing his way to the head of
the feast. Ho was a great whin er, ond had
ficquently wandered, away from the tribe iu
a huff; but he never failed to return when
lean and buugry to feed around the kitchen
and revel in hcraps. This Forney remember
ed a contest of bis for the chieftaincy with
the aged Simon, when he was ownrouieby
the lavish distribution of wampum among his
faithful followers, an i he was now somewhat
disposed to oppose tbe heir on account of that
ancient feud ; hut nobody paid any attention
to his doleful whimperings, and ho has once
more withdrawn from the tribe till his belly
shrinks again. With theoo trifling excep
tions, there is no trouble about the suoceseiou
of the happy Winnebagocs, JV. Y, Sun.
The Path of I'eac.
Nothing now stands in tho way of tho im
mediate fulfillment of the pledges as to tha

Hnycs in his inaugural address. Evory bar

OCR 11ARR1SBDIIU LETTER.
ItARUisnORd, March, 21st, 1877.
This has been ono of the most exciting
weeks of tho session. On Monday night
there was a sort of free fight lu tho House
over tho bill to prohibit the Sheriff of Pliili
delphla from appointing deputies lobe pres
ent at election polls. A special sckslon to
consider this bill was ordered by a majority
vote to be held on Monday night ten min
utes after tha hour of iidjoiirnu.ont (11 o'
clock) of tho regular session. Tho Demo
crats Insisted tint it n quired a two-thirds
vdto to order a special session to coiuld
er any bill out of lis regular order. The
Speaker decided that It mil' r quired n inn
j rity. Th"ii tho fun eomnic n il d. The

the war-like demonstrations nnd in spile cil

closed, the Democrats went home and did
not put in an 'ippc.iraucd at tho spei l.il ses
sion which met ten mi iiileafterivard. So
tho Republicans hsd things all their own
way and the bill in quotfi 'n was passed and

The local option bill came up in regular
order and wns summarily kicked out of tbe
liouso on Thursday lost Its introduction
and discussion caused the wildest excitement
and for a time the House was nothing but a
noisy rabble. Tho bill was amended so as to
submit tbe question to a vote of the people
of tho whole Stato instead of by counties.
Tho bill thus amended was defeated by a
voto of C3 yeas to 109 nays.
Aa the session nears its close and legisla
tion draws to a focal point matters of gener
al political importance outside begin to en
gage the attention of politicians and numer
ous candidates aro mentioned for the vari
ous Stato otfices to be filled at the coming
election. Tho olficere whoso terms expire
under the workings of the new Constitution
are State Treanursr and Auditor Genera,
and by the inscrutable working ot Pro
vidence that of Supreme Judge. Tbe
present incumbents of tbe two first otfi
ces aro ineligible for re-election and conse
quently new men must take their placos.
The gentleman who will bo the next Re
publican candidate for Supreme Judge Is
pretty well settled. Hon. J. P. Sterret ol
tVllegheny will be placed before the people
for election to the position which he now
holds . by Gubernatorial appointment. For
Auditor General on tbe Republican side,
several prominent gentlen.en are mention
ed; among them Howard J. Iteeder of
Northampton, Galusha A. Grow of SumU0'
hanna, Edward Scull of Somerset and J. A
Passmoro of Schuylkill.
For State Treasurer, tho Chief Clerk of the
Treasury Department, Capt. W. B Hart,
seems to bold the winning cards.
There was some talk during the last week
of extending the session of the Legislature
until tbe 31st of March, but most of the
members seem so thoroughly tired of Uar
risburg and its surroundings that I do not
think they can bring themselves to tbe point
of prolonging their stay for another week.
Monday was the last day upon which bills
passed in the House could be transmitted to
the Senate, and rice vtrta. The House is
consequently now engaged in the considera
tion of Senate bills and tho Senate Is wrest
ling with House bills. There aro about 400
bills still on the House calendars that cannot
be acted upon during the present tession.
All these bills will retain their places on
the calendar and the business of the next
session will be taken up wbcro it is left off
by the present one.

Washington's tomb was recently opcncsl in
order to institute some necessary repairs. The
unusual weight of tbe rarcophiigus contain'
ing Washington's remains aroused tbe curios
ity of the official who was sujcrintendiug the
work of removal, and it was decided to open
the sarcophagus in order (o ascertain the
cause. This was done and the lemains were
fuund to be petrified ; in fact a solid stone re
sembling a statue, tbe features perfectly nat
ural, with the excoptiou of eyes and ears, no
trace of which can bo seen. Tho body is of
a dark leathery color, and may be said to
be a soft sand Horn, which would likely
break should an attempt be madu to remove
it from tho sarcophagus. Edward Baker, an
aged colored man, who has rosided upon the
farm since he was a boy, aud who assisted iu
removing the remains from the old tomb to
the present one, suited that it Is thirty-eight
years slnoo their lust removal At that timo
they had rested in the old tomb thirty-eight-
years, and were exhumed iu n stato of preser

Life of St. Patrick.
Last Saturday was St. Patrick's day. Al
most as many countries arrogate tho honor
nf Laving been the native soil of St. Patrick
as made n similar claim with respect tn Ho
mer. Hcotlund, England, Krancoand Wales
each furnish their respective pretentions.
Ireland s apostle was born in tho year 372,
nnd when only sixteen years of age was car
ried off by pirates, who sold him into slav
ery in Ireland, whero his master employed
him as swineherd In tho well known moun
tain of Sleamlsh in the county of Antrim,
Here he passed several years, during which
timo he acquired a knowledge of tho Irish
language, habits, etc. Escaping from cap
tivity, be was successively ordained deacon,
priest and bishop, after many adventures
reaching the continent ; and then once more,
with the authority of Pope Clementine, he
returned to Ireland to preach the gospel to
Its then heathen Inhabitants.
A popular legend relates that the saint
and his fullowers found themselves one cold
morulDg on a mountain, without a fire to
cook their breakfast or warm their frozen
limbs. Unheediug their complaints Patrick
desired them to collect .a pile of ice and
snowballs, which having been done he
bi-eatbcd upon It, and it instantly became a
pleasant fire a fire that long after served to
point a poet's conceit in some love-lorn
Tho greatest of St. Patrick's miracles was
tiat of driving tho venomous reptiles out of
Ireland and rendering the soil forever after
wards so obnoxious to the serpent race that
they instantly dio on touching it. Colgan
seriously relates that St. Patrick accomplish'
oil this feat by beating a drum, which he
struck with such feryor that be knocked a
bole in it, thereby endangering the success
of the miracle. But an augcl appeared and
mended the drum, and tbe patched instru
ment was long exhibited as a holy relic.
When baptizing an Irish chieftain, the
venerable saint leaned heavily on bis cro
zier, the steel-spiked point of which he had
unwittingly placed on tbe great toe of the
converted heathen Tho pious chief, in his
ignorance of Christian rites, believing this
to be an essential part of the ceremony, bore
the pain without flinching or murinur,t hough
the blood fiowed so freely from tho wound
that the Irish named tho place Struthfhuil
(stream of blood.)
Poteon, a favorite beverage in Ireland, Is
also said to have derived its name from St
Patrick ; he, according to a legend being
the first who instructed the Irish in the art
of distillation. This, however, is, to say tbe
least,doubtful ; the most authentic historians
representing the saint as a very strict pro
moter of temperance, if not exactly a tceto
The shamrock, or small white clover, ia
almost universally worn In the hat, over all
Irelund, ou St Patrick's day. Tbe popular
notion is, that when St. Patrick was preach
log the doctrine of the Trinity to the pagan
Irish, he used this plant, bearing three
leaves upon oue stem, as a symbol or illus
tration of the great mystery.

ly mortifying to be obliged, from tbe want of

News from Japan, per steamer City of
Peking, says there is an Insurrection in the
province of Satsuma, The insurgents nro
believed to be mostly men of the Samsiiri or
gentry class, who are dUsatlsfied with tho
condition of comparative obscurity iu which
the great social und isilitical changes have
left them. Their number is variously esti
mated at from three to tea thousand, It is
currently reported that their movements are
directed by tbe celebrated statesman and
soldier Salgo Elder, brother of the recent
comminsiriner to tbe Philadelphia exhibition.
Of this rumor, though confidently reported
on all sides, no positive proof is given.
Large bodies of troops and strong naval
forces have been sent against tbo rebels un
der tbo general command of the Imperial
prince ArlsugauaUbe emperor's uncle. Col
