AFFAIUS, J. SIMPSON AFRICA, OF IIUNTINUDON COUNTY. A MENDACIOUS STATEMENT. Our readers may remember the virulence with which tlio Republican attackeJ Mr. Uuckalew In the Gubernatorial campaign of 1872 It not only mailo charges that wcro utterly falso but tlio writer knew them to be no. Tho present cinipalirii, it seems, U to be conducted on tbe same principle. The Republican of the Cth inst., coiitalued the following : Because Dill is the son of a Methodist preacher, n few preaeheis are trvii.g to make capital 1'or him. Ffyi.inger's i9 among thune that ore playing upon lliit "harp of n thousand string." Rev Mr. Dill Is a rep utable gentleman, lie is a good Republi can but uulbrtunatcly as often occurs lie lias two sons who nro fake to his teaching". The one served faithfully in the rebel army in the South during the rebellion and tho other In fhe Democratic party in tho north. Tho latter is the nominee ot the Democratic par ty for Governor. During the rebellion the loyal father would not recognize his rebel rod and it will bo all he can do now to vote for the other boy who was at least couuted on the rebel side. N. B. Dill himself is no Methodist by a loug shot. Some of these statements ws know to be untrue, and tho senior editor of the Republi can, coming Irom Xiewisburg, having been a Methodist minister, knew tho above state ment to bo false. We sent the slip to Gov. Dill, and from him received the following letter which completely refutes the slanders of the Re publican : Lewisbut.q, Pa., June 11, 1878. Dear Bkockway : The facts to which allusion is made in the slip you enclosed are that my brother Ed. a printer, who learned his trade in Williamsport and to which he added the art of phonography, was long a resident of Washington in the pursuit of his profession. Ue went South for the same Surpose before the war and was married in 'ew Orleans to a grand daughter of Dr. Ashabel Green a former President of Prince ton College. lie remained in the South dur ing the war. It be were engaged in the military service I have no knowledge of it, I.do know however that at thecollapso of the rebellion his father, instead of disowning him, contributed along with his brothers to the pressing necessities of himself and fam ly and did so more than once, until he was able to return the loan. I was a member of the Democratic uarty during the 'war' but bow far that will justify the denunciation of 'rebel' as applied to me, is a mattcr of opin ion. Of one thing I am certain, it did uot cost me tbe confidence, respect and affection of my father and of many other good people in whose eight I lived during that trying time. If any Methodist ministers are supporting me in the manner and for the reasons stated, I am not aware of it. While no citizen should seek public favor by reason of his re ligious opinions neither should he be con demned on account of them In a State whose constitution, in its declaration ot rights de clares that 'no person who acknowledge the being of a God and a future state ot rewards and punishments shall on account of his re ligious sentiments be disqualified to hold any olBce or place of trust or profit under this Commonwealth.' The differences of religious beliefs and the private relations of lauiilies in my judg ment, are not legitimate subjects of political controversy. Yours truly, A. .U. Dill, (JIVE UsYilESf. The Republican says : "Our country wants rest. Our business men want rest, labor wants rest, but the eternal agitation that Democracy is keeping up is killing capital, killing labor; and prostrating every enter prise." And then it talks about "original rebels" reenactlng "on a bloodier scale the scenes of 1801." The people of Columbia county havo grown so used to reading this kind of stulTinthe pages of ourcotemporary lhat it has no effect upon them. They know what it means. It is that somebody is after the party of fraud, tho party that steals any thing from a mule up to tho White House, and the knavery of that party is about to be abown up. John Sherman, Stanley Mat thews and others are being gradually drawn into the meshes that will expose all their chicanery, and possibly lead to their im peachment, certainly to their degredatlon in the eyes of tbe nation, the Republican party sees the House of Representatives out of their grasp, and then they "want a rest." Custom Houses and Post Offices will glide from their finers after another Presidential election, and they must stay tbe tide that sweeps tbem from power. The tlood gates are opened, anil the torrent is rushing over this party of corruption and fraud, and in three years more the Republican will have its full share ot rest, for its party will be so effectually shelved that another decade will know of it only in history. Then give us a rest, the sooner the better. William Cullen Bryant, the celebrated po et and editor died at his residence in New York on Wednesday morning. He was born In 1704. His last public effort was a speech at the unveiling of the bust of Mazzlnl, (he Italian patriot, in Central Park, New York on decoration day, which seemed to exhaust him, and on his return to the house of a lrieud he fell backwards with bis head ou stone step, causing injuries from which he did not recover. He was recognlztd as one of the greatest American poets. OilECOS ELECTION. Tbe latest returns from Oregon show that tbe Republican state ticket has beeu elected, but the Democrats have elected the Con gressmau and a majority of the Legislature ao that they will elect a United States Sena' tor. The Democrats will have a majority of ten on joint ballot. O, F. Bullard, the Delaware county ex member of the Legislature, who was taken from the county jail by the house of Repre. tentatiyes and afterwards escaped from the sergeant-at-armf, has been convicted on the charge of inakiug fraudulent entries as sec' retary of a building association. The jury recommended hiui to the mercy of the court probably because tho affairs of tbe associa tion had beeu bo loosely conducted by the directors as to eucourago tho secretary to withhold money and Uae it iu private speculations. Louisiana l'nrot ling l'ollttrs. t Ouo nf the Irattires of the Louisiana inves tigation that forces itself on public notice Is tho rollicking humor with which statesmen ot tho Louisiana carpet bag stripe rfgard tho enormities of Louisiana politics. That vil lainies of all kinds had been committed on n formidable scale at the election there It did not need nny new Investigation to prove, for every material fact thus far brought out was known a year and a half ago, and tho history of Louisiana ejections Is foul and black wild them for the last ten years ; but that men bearing at Ieat the external signs of decency should publicly exhibit their nameless lack of all conscience aiul common honesty In their contemplation of such crimes against tho nation and talk of them wild ribald jocularity, ns If they wcro so many acts in a stago farce, U a new revela tion. Reading the evidence nf such men and taking them ns examples ot tbe school of Louisiana hiss politicians, thero can bo no escapo Jfroin the conclusion that they looked upon tho bargain and silo nf the de cisive vote at an election for President of tho Hulled States, not ouly as a matter nf course proceeding In political merchandising, but asa jolly line joko. '1 hey talk about their part iu it in an easy, oil' hau l, Itlppaut man ner, as gamblers might tell, over their drinks of the trick by which n hoiso-race was Jockeyed, so ns to ilecce the greenhorns out of their money. The brazen effrontery of "these people is marrelou, and is calcula ted to make other folks believe that after nil thero may be truth in what has been re garded ns a slander upon a high carpet Las olHcl.il of South Carolina, who was charged a couple of years ago, with saying that, not withstanding the exposure of tho terrific plundering in that State, thero were "three good yeirs of stealing in South Carolina yet." It Is humiliating to think that these fellows and their fellows of the same class, wern the sort of men whose appeals to Wash ington led to tho use of the military forces of the United States to uphold them when their own villainous proceedings were sink ing them under a load of public odium. It is not without reason that the airy and flippant tone of these fellows is pointed nut for public reprobation. To read what they say under oath,'and pass it by as something smart' in its way, or to givo it tolerance by falling to brand it with tbe infamy it de serves, would be a fatal mistake. Nothing would suit such unscrupulous scoundrels better than to infect the popular mind with their jolly way of looking at tho forgeries, the perjuries and other villainies they were so ready to use "for the sake of the party," nnd to put 'themselves in a position to bo 'provided for.' That is tho way in which the popular mind is too often made familiar with the idea that public elections may bo gambled away. It Is in that way that the popular sense of tho sanctity of elections is blunted and demoralized, and that public opinion Is debauched to the ruin of nations nnd peoples. The point to bo deeply impressed on pub" lie opinion in this Louisiana business, ns made clear by the tone of the testimony, is that the monstrous crimes committed against the people of the whole country, at the elec tion in that State, was carried on by men in public office, who plied their infamous trade, as a matter of course, with as little scruple as common'rascals exhibit in a horse trade, or a corher in stocks and that they talk of their successes and their failures with shame less flippancy as if it all were a huge joke,1 although their crime was designed to nullify the will of the nation, threatened to plunge the country into' anarchy, and kept a'l pat riotic people in a condition of painful anx iety for three memorable months. This is the condition into which tho public affairs of this country have been brought, by tbe tol erance of politic! and politicians ot tbe Lou isiana carpet-bag breed, of which Feliciana Anderson, his companions, employers, aid ers and abettors are types. Phila. Ledger. "A Good Platform." The "nationals" down in Berks county seem to havo for their leaders some meu of pretty good sound sense In which respect they do uot very closely resemble the "na tionals" of Schuylkill county. At a meeting held in Reading on the 31st ult., Mi. John Amreiu made an earnest speech, in which he sail "tho democrats at Pittsburg adopted a splendid platform, and then be reproved the republicans and declared that, disguise it as they inoy, the republican party throughout the west was for tree trade. Mr. Thomas King said "he believed that the democratic platform was a very good one." Of course both these gentlemen advocated tbe election of the greenback ticket, but this fact gives additional emphasis to their dec laration that the democratic platform was a good one. The democratic platform is not only a good one, but it is entirely consistent with the policy pursued by the democratic party since it obtained control of one of the coordinate branches of the government. If the democratic platform is such a good one in the eyes ot the "nationalist" leaders, and if the democratic party has conformed it s policy to such a platform, we don't exactl y see what use there is for a third party. With its possible control of two branches of the government the democratic party will be able to do more for the interests of the la boring people than half a dozen greenback parties. roltsville'.ChronicU. The administration is taking care that there shall be uo more untoward revelations as to the Louisiana frauds. The appoint ment of Morris Marks as Collector of In ternal Revenue for the First district of Lou isiana accomplishes at one stroke tbe re ward of the man who enticed Anderson in to Secretary Shermau's office with a view to getting the Supervisor of East Feliciana parish into the power of the Secretary of the Treasury, and closes the mouths of three witnesses who were relied on to sustain An derson's testimony, tbe understanding being that Marks is to provide for them, Marks is a great rascal, and is one of tbe political prostitutes who were called Hayes electors in Louisiana. In that State it would be hard to find anybody who would trust him with a dollar or believe him on oath. The President Is standing by John Sherman with a vengeance. Time: Judge Pearson, of Harrisburg, rendered a decision tbe other day which is of consider able Interest to farmers everywhere. He de cided that supervisors are by law compelled to assess the usual road taxes immediately upon entering upon their duties, and that llie Looks In which the aesessmeuts are made shall be open to the Inspection of the taxpayers, aud that every man who chooses to do so may work out his road tax instead of paying it in money, No supervisor can exact cash for tax in coso tho assessed patty chooses to pay it iu labor. Only a Relation ly Murriage. "Don," told the veteran Simon, with i troubled air, after reading Sherman's ex planatiou about that letter to Weber aud Anderson, "perhaps you'd belter stop calling him JJniJo John ; he's only a relation by marriage, anyhow," JV, i'.

The great partnership cae of Freck ngalnt lllacklston was up again on Thursday of last week hi fore JudpcVYcrke and Finlctter for argument. Mr. A. IV Shearer appeared for the plaintiff, Mr. J. M. Freck, and Richard 0, McMurhle fur the defendant. The suit, commenced in 18CS, jtrew nut of n partner, ship formed by thn parties Iu l!6 worlcfng the CVntralla colliery in "Oolnmnla county. In 18113 ltlneWlrtf.il nM out to K reck-nil Ills interest in Hip cntlrry and Iu "nil-the mater ial, prnperlyi fixture, machinery, tools and engines thereto belonging, nnd all property, real nnd personal, Therewith connected." In 188 Freck filed a bill in rqu ty against his former partner, praying for an account to be exhibited by him of certain items in the partnership transactions, lllacklston In his answer pleaded that the account had been settled except as tntivo items, of which he claimed Freck 1ui'ill make an arciunt to III in 'me of $SU0 received by 'Freck from the Supervisors nf Columbia omtnty In repayment nf a lo.in, and the other nf HO, 000 il.imiges paid to Kre by the Lehigh Valley Htllroad Company after the dissolu tion of thn firm for an injury done to tho collery while It was partnership property. The Court of Nisi Prlu, upon the report of the master, sustained the claim of lllacklston tonn account of these (no item,.aud the claim of Freck to cerlnln other Itemr, and both putlcs appealed to the Supreme Court, which, in M ircli. 187(1. decided to reverse the there nf Xil l'rim, n l remltled tho record to Common Pleis No. It for further proceedings, 'fhe decision nf the lower court sustaining 1lncklton's right tn an ac count for the two items was, however, af firmed. On wruln reacliinii the Common Pleas the cac was ent back to the master, who charced the plaintiff, Freck with inter est upon the 810,000, amounting to about $1,500. Exceptions were tiled by tho latter to this report, and lit this f-liapo the matter came before the court yesterday. In opposi tion to the master's report it was argUfd that the Court had up jurisdiction, becauso the record had neverbeen properly remitted from the Supremo Court, as- dlncted, and also that interest should only he allowed Blac.is ton upon the $10,000 from the time of the decree in his fayor by thn Siipreuie Court. No decision was made. Times'. The distressed workingmen looked in vain among tho various remarks in the republican ' platform for bomo cvidenco that the party now in powcrintended to do something' to re' lievo their condition. Their -nxiolis eyes were mot by somo unmeaning generalities, tho purport of which was that (ho country ought to bo prosperous and tho laboring class-' cs employed. This rcmarkablo piece 'of vol untary information is all that is vouchsafed. But what better could bo expected from the parfy which by its misapplication of the 6on stitution, its favoritism to corporations and its unequal taxation has 'brdnrit the country to this state. The community rifcver'places' any reliance on promises of reformation from a' thief who' lias been a score of times 'convicted. For tho'saule reas'6n the pcbple cannot places' confidence in tho weak protestations' of a par ty which by a long continued and often do- moustrated corrupt 'control of the government has becomo thoroughly unprincipled in all 'its actions. It is evidently 'not' from this source that the workingmen must look for aid. Nei ther can anything bo hoped for from this new ly born political babe, tho Ndtional party. It is wrong from tho start, resting upon theories which novcr fan receive the sanction of the people. It cannot now be expected to bo of importanco in tho campaign, qo matter how bright its propncts'of becsming tho balance of power might onco have been. Its short life reminds the political philosopher of a baby that has expired from too much crying or wind colic or something of t liatbort. Desert ed by its leaders and unable to persuade men to accept its nominations, the national party is a nonentity in Pennsylvania politics. The power to which the people must turn in this criis is the democratic party. In tho able mauifusto which tho Pittsburg convention sets beforo the peoplo is found the true cause and remedy of all tho poverty and distress un der which the country is now lying. Tho great labor quest ion is met and tho laborer 's demand answered. Corporations must bo forced to conform to tho laws, bloated monopolieswhich feed on the government revenues must bo pricked with the keen sword of economy, money must bo p'acud in circulation and pros perity will follow. Honest administration of tho govermcnt is tho preventive of all strikes and the means by which to overcome this communistic Impbear. ValrM. Ke.iiful Accident in England. O.i Friday last a fearful colliery explosion oorurrtil in Jvvan s Wood Pit collierv. at llHjilnck, rix miles south of Wigan, Lan cashire. Tho number of men in the pit at the time is variously estimated at from' 200 to 2.r)0 Many of them have b'en brought up bad ly injured. The larger part are believed to be killed, but it is impossible to explore the mine in const ijtienio of fire-damp. The explosion In the coal pit shook the earth for miles around. The first explorer descended tbe shaft five minutes after the explosion, and others followed. Ten meu were retcued alive and were sent to fbeBur- face, when one died almost immediately ,and the other suffered much from after damp. Light other men are alive and have taken refuge in a working of the mine. Two hun dred and Ihlrty-tnu men are dead. The ex plnrers state that they found bodies decapita ted, reduced to shapeless masses and some of tbem blown to pieces. It Is expected that the corpses will be brought up by mid-night, A large crowd of men, women and children surrounded the mouth of the pit. The cause of the explosion is unknown, as blasting with naked lights Is prohibited. Iloyt as an Aristocrat.

The Senate passed the Army Appropria tion Bill, with an amendment referring to a Commission the subject of a tr.msfer of the Indian Uureau to the War Department. The two principal points of disagreeuint between tbe two Houses on this bill is the Indian Bu reau transfer and the Senate provision In creasing the Army to 2.5,000 men. The Senate also passed a hill appropria ting five and a half million dtllars to pay the fishery Award.

It was smug led through the Senate in a semi-clandestiue way, seem ingly, pr jit leat without, provoking much discussion or comment, as though that body had determined to do something that it was ashamed of and, hoped the public wouldn't hear of if.

BiJiiLlN, June 11 The subject of the approaching Congresa of the Powers in this city attracts, relatively, less public attention than the internal crisis, which Iskcpt.prom incntly in view by the activity of the police aud the partisan preparations for tho ap proaching elections. The leaders of the National Liberty party are hero for consultation, aud to determine on a course ot action. 1 hey believe that llismarck had determined upon the dissolu tion of the Reichstag even before Nobeliug's attempt to kill tbe Emperor, or that he would at least have convened the Reichrtag, and ascertained the disposition of that body. Their war cry will be like that of the French Republicans in the contest with the De Broglie Ministry tbe return of the present Liberal members. Prince Frederick William, replying to an address of the municipality of Berlin, declar ed that his faith in the loyalty ot an over whelming majority of the nation was un shaken. The condition of Dr. Nobeling is much improved and it is thought likely be will re cover. The recovery of the hmperor is pro gressing wonderfully. To-day ho celebrates the forty-ninth anniversary of his marriage. Arrests for treasonable utterances among the classes infested with socialism continue to be very frequent. The Federal Council, it is expected, will certainly consent to tbe dissolution pf the Reichstag to-day. The elections will be appointed for the second half of July. A bulletin Istiied at 10:30 a. m., says: 'The F.mperor continues to improve. His wounds have all healed. The right arm is still swollen, but is less susceptible.'' Loshon, June 9. A letter to a prominent German house'in this city-gives a summary of what purports to he the report made by tbe chief of tho secret police to Prince His marck, summing up tho results of all tbe discoveries that had been made concerning the Nobeling diuplricy. The ficls as thus related bear out the statements already made as to the widespread nature of the plot. The condition of Nobeling has never been wi dangerous as was reported, and he will live to meet his f ite at tbe hands of tbe executioner. The state of the publio feel ing, howevtr, begius to show evidence of a reaction from the fervid loyalty that marked everything last week, and the police either really fear, or pretend tn fear, that further trouble is at bund.

Bishop McCoskry. THE SCANDAL THAT 1IA3 FOIICEI) A BISHOr OUT OF TIin'CHDllCII. Detroit, Juno 7. The scandal in which Bishop SIcCoskry's name was involved a few weeks ago has been followed by his relin quishment of the office of bishop. It will be remembered that Bishop McCoskry denied his guilt, and that Fannio Richards asked him to clear her name ; but the investiga tion of the case, which was begun after he had reached New York on bis way1 to Eu rope, brought out some documents that did not admit of satisfactory explanation. The report in tho McCoskry affair that was yes terday submitted to the Michigan, Diocesan Convention, in session here, contains a doc ument that had been received from him ii these terms : Detroit. Mav 18.-1878. As mv resignation of mv jurisdiction of the Diocese of Michigan was withdrawn at your request, and notice filed for a meeting ot tbe ilouse ot liishops to consider -it, 1 now present ray resignation of my office as nil .. r .l l : c . . i - t UlSUUU Ul IMC JJlUCCStl ui luicuigau. J. uuu I shall be utterly unable to discharge the duties connected with that office, ana I do not wish to be a burden to the diocese. - If I recover I can still try to do some good In ...1 -rt. . .... , . a inc suuuruinaie unices 01 me ministry. Sasiuel A. McCoskry, This letter of Bishop McCoskry was un satisfactory to the standing committee of the diocese, and so another letter of the same date was sent to tbe presiding bishop, in these words : Detroit. Mav 18. 1878. Havinc heretofore presented my resigna tion of jurisdiction of and over the diocese Michigan, and subseouentlv withdrawn'the same, I now desire and do hereby resign my jurisdiction over the same, and do further resign and relinquish my ouice as bishop In the Protestant Episcopal Church of the United States, and desire that the House of lilsuops may meet at the earliest convenient season to consider and act upon this resigna tion, upon such length and manner of notice as shall be thought best by tho presiding oisnop. Sasiuel A. McCoskry, This resignation has been accepted. Con strued under the church laws, it involves not only the resignation of the bishopric,but of tbe ministry also, and is of the most com plete kind. The convention has voted to pay the resigned bishop an annuity of $1500, subject to revision by future conventions. Rioters' Depredations. Quebec, June 12.
