the excellent reputation of the Dill. His

that his son should be nominated to repre

iiib Iroui seeing your paper of tho 7lh uutil
lust evening, when I wits pained to find In It
a personal attack upon two of the preachers
of ihevCentral Pennsylvania M. H. confer
encr, Revs. 11. 0. and W. II. Dill. When
political papers go out of their way to n.ake
)t'rsonal attacks of this kind they must be
held accountable lor their utterances, and
this being a "family niTair'' ju another sense
than that intended by the caption of your
article, involving cs it does the good name
of Methodist preachers in general, I cannot
allow it to pass by in silence, especially as a
portion of your article indirectly implicate-'
me with one of my brethren whom you
in your issue of last evening you say you
chargo the Uev. Dill with nothing, after as
serting, without equivocation, in your for
iner article, that "i;ire the nomination" of A.
H. Dill tor governor "his father and brother
both respected ministers of the gospel, are
roaming over the state, preaching to strange
congregations.' If this language peans
nothing, you had better left it unsaid. It
you mean by it that these two ministers have
bten doing more preaching abroad from their
homes than before Mr. D's. nomination, aud
are doing this lor tho sako of the effect it
may have on his election, I want to enter my
solemn protest agaiimt such it charge.
"Too younger Dill preached m Harris
burg recently." True, and did so on my
pressing invitation, as did also my brother
of Shamokin, and 15. U. Moser, of .New
Cumberland, as I had four quarterly meet
ings to hold upon tho orje day. Win. II.
Dill has for years been responding to calls of
this kind in all parts of our conference, aud
no one has been mure ready thau bq to ren
der aid of any kind whenever and wherover
it was needed. The whole conference is com
petent to attest that he is now doing only
what he has been doing for years. As my
guest and helper, therefore, I cannot permit
him to be chaiged with what I know to be
As to the venerable llcnrv O. Dill, whom
you implicate in the same charge, Were is
not the slightest foundation for the assertion
and if he were as widely known as you say
he has "roamed over tho state'" it would be
altogether unnecessary to refute it. Fpr
nearly half a century he has devoted himself
to the work of the ministry and has borne an
unblemished reputation. His brother min7
liters will see in his declining ye-trs.that that
reputation shall remain untarnished by un
principled and uncalled for personal attacks
eveu if made under pretended political newr
paper freedom. They are too jealous of the!
loyalty to the flag under which they live, al
jo to permjt it to be impeached as you Jiave
impeached it in yourulluaion to the days of
rebellion and secession in church aud state.
The first vote I cast in my conference vvasfl
in the city of Italtimore, on the 5th day of
March, 1SG2, when I had the honor to say
"ayc"with Father Dill aud 102 other .Metho

Tho Philadelphia Times of the 10th Inst,.
wind) up an editorial of the result in Maine
as follows :
"The lesion of .Maine is a brief story to
record. It is n'liepuullcan disaster that is
revolutionary in its results. It docs not re
call the Democrats to power lu that hitherto
unfaltering Uepublican State, but it places
her authority iu tho custody of a Democrat
ic receiver to be held until the damaged as
sets of the Uepublican bankrupt can bo prop-
etly impocd or. It Is not u victory born of
trust or affection for any party. It is a de
feat of Republicanism not because the peo
plo of Maine loved tho Uepublican Cies.ir
less, but because they loved Ronio more, and
it is an admonition to nil parties that there
must be a nobler ruler in State and nation.
It is u crushiug blow to Maine the ablest
aud most heroic of all the Uepublican lead
ers of the country, for it makes him tho un
dertaker of ull tho troops of Uepublican
leaders iu Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania.
It is the death knell of Republicanism in
Ohio and Indiana for 187S, and It writes the
uauio of Andrew II. Dill in the next Gub
ernatorial commission of Pennsylvania so
plainly that even Henry M. Uoyt will not
blunder in reading it.
Remember the triumph of tho democracy
means tho payment of the $3,000,000 of reb
el fraudulent war claims, and thisisonly the
beginning,. The northern democracy in or
der to get hold of power and spoils must
have u solid South. Montour American.
Tho above Is a reduction on the general
campaign lie as to tho paymeut of the
Southern war. claims. The' Clearfield Ue
publican says :
"Elect a Democratic Congress and you
shoulder a debt df Jfi00,000,000 for proper
ty taken from rebels during the war on the
people. Elect a Uepublican Congress aud
you, will tide over the threatening danger."
Now, no act can pass without Hayes' sig
nature, or a two-thirds vote over his veto.
It would be well also for Uadical editors to
read tho following from the Constitution :
The XlXth Amendment to that instru
ment'reads as follows :'
Snc. IV. The validity of the public debt
of the United States authorized bv law. in
cluding debts incurred for the payment of
pensions anu uounties :or service in sup
pressing insurrectiou or rebellion, shall not
be questioned, but neithertiie United States
uor any state snail assume or pay any debt
or obligation incurred iu aid of insurrection
or rebellion against the United Suites, or
any claim for loss or emancipation of any
slave, but all such debts, obligations uud
claims shall be held illegal and void.
Six. V. Tho Congress shall have power to
enforce, by appropriate Legislation, the pro
visions in this article.
now do vm? Like it ?
For 22 years tho opposition have dominat
ed iu Maine. The returns from it gave the
key-note to Uepublican organs. It was not
only a stronghold, but hail such leaders as
Hamlin, Blaine, Hale, Chamberlain and
others. A mortal blow was struck them at
tho last election as shown by the following

For tho benefit of those who are not aware
of the law upon the subject, we produce the
ct ot Assembly regulating tho expenses of
candidates for olhce, since tho adoption of
tue new Constitution.
The act of April 18, 1871, pamphlet fans,
1674, p. Gl, says :
"Si:ctiox 1, lie it enacted, d-c , That no
person who shall hereafter be a candidate
lor the nomination, or for election to the
Senate or House of Uepresentatlves, or to
any offices of the judiciary, or to any State,
municipal or county oflice in this common
wealth, shall pay or contribute, either direct
ly or indirectly, any money or other valua

election or appointment, except necessary '
expenses, as follows, to-wlt :
First. For printing and traveling e:t
peneo. Second. For dis-eminalioii of informa
tion to the public.
Third. For political meeting, demou
strations and conventions.
The fore'goiug expenses may be Incurred
either Irrpersou or through other Individu
als or committees of organizations duly con
stituted fur tho purpose, but nothing con
tained lu Ibis act shall be construed to
authoriza the payment of money or other
valuable thing for the vote or influence of
any elector, either directly or indirectly, at
primary, township, general or special elec

corrupt purposes whatever incident to an

of the constitution of this commonwealth.

the provisions of this act shall be guilty of
a iiiisdemeauor, and ou conviction shall be
subject to a fine not exceeding one thousand

That law Is certainly explicit enough fur
candidate and voter to understand, Ilesldes
the oath an officer must take before ho en

whom was received a satisfactory reply :

calculated to arouso tho deepest sympathy for
our destitute and suffering countrymen and
tho generous response evoked thong bout tho

eyes ol the sternest. Generous and sponta
neous as are the contributions in every quar
tor ol tho couutry, private charity alone is
unequal to the great emcigency, and constant
appoals aro made to the government for help,
It is known to you that tho Hon. Georgo M'

ed most liberally to every npp'al, but it is al
so known to you that iu the issuing of gov

upon his own responsibility and without tho
authority 'of law ; that ho will continue to
meet all demands I have no rcasou to doubt,
but that ho feels most painfnlly the great re
sponsibilities that he has assumed, I have oc
casion to know. As a citizen of Mississippi I
deem it not inappropriate to address you, as
loading members of tho dominant party iu the
houso ot representatives, and invoke in ad
vaneeyour approval of the humauo course of
Secretary M'Crary, and your iuflucnco iu rat-

reads as follows i
"I do solemnly swear that I v ill support,
obey and defend the constitution ot the
United States, and the constitution of this

than Uio compensation alloucd by law."
Candidates for office should clip it nnd
pin it in their hats, and occasionally read it
to their constituents so that no one need of
The Hone of the Country.
As the Shlppensburg Chronicle so well
Bays, the only hope of the country is center
ed In the Democratic party, aud the me
chanic, the farmer, the merchant, and the
laborer, who desires to see our Industries re
ceive new life, will vote for the Democratic
and not jeopardize thtlr opportunities by
supporting a new party which has no foun
dation, no strength or hope of success save
in givlug tho Uepublican party, which Is al
most dead, a new lease of life. Do you want
to see our furnace, forges, factories and
business generally paralyzed still further?
Then voto for the Uepubllenn party or its
only salvation, the Gicenbuck party. Hut
If you wish to see busy times, when work
will be plenty, money plenty, taxes light
and peace and harmony throughout the
length and breadth of .our land, vote the
Democratic ticket. Give us a Democratic
Governor, Senate and House of Uepreseut;
tires, and a Democratic Senator instead'of
Don Cameron llrFVfall lu 1 'eunsylvanla, nod
a Democratic President In 1880, and all
these things will bo "added unto us,"
Washington, 0. C, Serf 1(1, 1878.
No more important election has been held
In Maine to-day. Present Indications aro
that at least ouo Democratic CoDgtcssinnn
will bo elected, and that the Uepublican ma
jorities in tho other Dlstilcts will be very
mall. It Is not thought theru will be nil
election of Governor by tl people nnd the
complexion of the legislature is doubtful.
This is not wholly Ihe reiult of the Green
back movement, but Is lu part a rebellion
against Senator Maine n rebellion which
has long been threatened, nnd which would
have broken out a year ago but for tho good
oflices of Mr. Hayes with prominent Uepub-
lieans who wern dissatisfied with tho rule1 of
tho Senator. All the Ueniiblicans then
ready to go Into revolt do not take part with
Democrats'or Greenbackersthisyear butlhey
will be glad of any result which shall alio
enator IJIaino s power to be declining.
Hut tho importance of the election is not
because of its effect within the state, but
became it will encourage opposition to radi
calism everywhere nnd because losses by the
ladicals will show that old sectional ques
tions, which ought to have been buried years
ngo, are no longer controlling Influences In
tho state. The Influence in oilier stales, if
.Maine shall fail to elect a Uepublican Gover
nor and shall send a divided delegation to
Congress, can hardly be estimated.
Messrs Uandall and lllackburn are so far
the only two Democrats who hnvo been an
nounced as candidates for Speaker of the
House in the Forty-Sixth Congress. Mr.
Uandall says there is no doubt of his own
election. He also says the Democratic party
will carry Pennsylvania.
There is something almost ludicrous in the
terror of Uepublicans in Massachusetts over
the candidacy ol Gen. Duller for Governor.
As I have befoie said Duller will probably
be tleffatcd, but the mere fact that he is in
the field will have it good elleet. Whether
siuceiely or merely lor eil'eel, the Gen. has
declared himself opposed to a great many
things which have grown up in the Govern
ment of .Massachusetts under Uepublicans,
nnd which have long been known to bo fear
fully cxpiinivii ami believed to bo un
necessary for Ihe hi Hare of tho state". In
this position Huller has the sympathy of the
voters, aud it is likely tho classes that are
benefited bv if eo abuses will have to take
pretty nearly the same ground that he does
in order to defeat him. The result will be
influenced gn.illj by ul.nt otenrsin Maine

West Point, September 10. Tho bearing
in the Filz John Porter cao was resinned
this morning before Generals Schofield, Get
ty nnd Terry, Judge Advocate Gardner ap
pearing lor the government and Messrs.
Mnlthy, HulletundChoate forthe petitioner.
The petitioner continued his case by calling
to the witness-stand Alexander D. Payne, of
Warrenton, Va., n lawyer.
Iu August, IMJ2, witness said ho was first
lieutccant of ianlry in General Stuart's reb
el cavalry. Hoteiifled that on the 2Uth of
August he was at the headquarters of Gener
al Lee. lie was thoroughly conversant with
the country thereabouts, having been born
there Tin re was no general engagement
ou Ihe 2:itli' as stated by General Pope in
his dispatches, but there was a severe en
gagement on the llilth, tho severest of the
war, tliel-ittghter being terrible, the ground
beiiu black with dead and wounded. This
was brought out to show Porter's bravery ns
n general and his loyalty to the cause. In
relation to the -i:o0 P. M. order sent by Pops
to Porter ou the 2i)th,Hiid which Pope s ord
erly said ho delivered to Porlerat I) P. M,,
tho wilntss testified that he had been all over
the grounds Indicated in the orderly's testi
mony as to the route he took, and had rid

his trip, and it took him niu'ely-six minutes.
Over nuother route it took him eigh ty-six
Colonel Walter S. Davis, of California,
entered the army in 1801 fromMassachusetts
and ju August, 1802, was n stall' officer in
Martend.de's brigade. Ho said that the
night of the 27th was the darkest ho ever
knew, and he did not sleep because Porter
was anxious that his troops should move ear
ly in the morning. That ho met General l'on
ter, when the latter told him to uotily Gen
eral Sykes sent word back to Porter that it
was impossible to move, because of the in
tense darkness iu the woods, Witness also
indorsed other evidence showing there was
no fighting, except artillery firing, on the
29th, aud ho knew of no order that day for
t'urter s corps to retreat, nor did he know of
uny retreat. Ho described the severity oi
tho fight on the 30th and Porter's activity all
along tho line. The contending forces were
so close that lie saw a Confederate soldier
seize a Union man and haul him iutotho
Confederate ranks. On bis cross examina
the witness said he knew General Porter was
anxious to respond to Pope's order ou tho
night of tho 29lh as quickly as possible. The
roads were filled with wagns in disorder
and ull heade-d for Washington.
-Major l'.urle, of Colorado, was Assistant
Adjutant General to Msjor General Morrell
in August, 1SC2. He testified to the dark
nesi of the night of the 27th, aud that the
roads were very much blocked by wagon
rains. Porter having been censured for not
attacking Longstreet ou the 29th, counsel
showed by this witnoss, as also by a previous
oue. that on the 29th General McDowell ap
preached Porter In a bluff maimer and ex
claimed : "Porter, you nro to far out
Movo your troops back into those woods j
this is no plate tt) fight." This was brought
out to throw the responsibility of Porter's
not annexing on that day upon General Mo
Dowejl. Witness did not bear anvthiiiL' that
day that indicated a general engagement.
Tho associated press lias been wrestliug

the tiauroi would drup with each stieeossivo

gles for tho important positions of Congress
men and S nator iu districts embraciug two or
more counties, the rulo is for ovcry county to
oflVt a candidato who selects his conferees
from tho circle of his personal followers, and
then goes into tho political market to get tho
best poseiblo prico for his men. Vc liavo
known unimportant men in unimportant
counties to crowd themselves forward ns can-1
elidates for Congress at every Congressional
election for years, got possession of tho con
ferees and regularly trad" them for post ofli
ces, revenuo oflices or places for themselves in
the documtnent room at the cjpitol. S com
mon has this custom becomo that it hasdetuor
alized both parties fearfully In many sections
of tho Slato. It lias often been effected by
petty, sliamclul barter, making tho very worst
or the least desired nominations, and many
local defeats of tho majority parly have
been the fruits of tho disgraceful system.
It denies to a political party all voice in tho
selection of its candidates, and invites bum
incrs to enter contests when good men do not
offer and when counties have no just claims,
merely to trade t!i"tnclvcs into a little prom
inence) or pell out their power for so much
cash At a lecent Democratic conference in
tho Westmoreland district, an adjournment
was asked for becauo Mr. Wise, ouo of tho
candidates, insisted that ho could not attend,
and since then Wise, ol'Grecn, Hoylo, of Fay
ette nnd Lomison, of Westmoreland, tho rival
candidates, aro accepted as tho managers of
tho confused conferenco that lias been meet
ing and adjourning for a month past. Instead
of the party selecting competent and faithful
representative) men to voto for the choico of
their county and thenexcrciso a sound discre
tion when their choico fails, it is understood
in theso later days that only tho candidato is
the party to bo consulted, while his conferees
must subordinate themselves to his whims or
cupidity. It is high time that all parties took
a manly stand to arrest tho growing evil. It
would vastly impair the power of adventurers
in politics, and majority parties would savo
themselves from many just defeats thereby.
The Trade Dollar.
The Uepublican party has made another
progressive step, and ns usual, it 1 backward
so far as it elfects the people, but forward in
the interests of the bankers and money
Tho trade dollar is worth but ninety cents
ut the post offices, or on the rail road. When
issued by the government to the money
kings it was a legal tender for qne hundred
cents, but when it had been liberally distrib
uted among the workingmen, the Uepubli
can partyhad an act passed taki ng away its
legal tender character, and theroby stealing
under the forms of law, ten cents on every
dollar owned by tho poor man.
This act is in perfect harmony with all
Uepublican legislation for tbo past fifteen
years ; always in the interest of the rich and
always against the poor man. The whole
amount of trade dollars ever issued reach
but a few millions, (uot it tithe of what bas
been stolen by the treasury ring,) and this
action can only be characterized as a small,
mean, dirty specimen of larceny. No ex
planations can relieve the party guilty of
this contemptible fraud on tho workingman,
but it will open still wider tho eyes of that
class of our citizens who see that a further
continuance iu power of the Uepublican
party means additional burdens on tho tax
payers and larger dividends to the monied
It would seem that hereafter the Uepubli
can papers should have littlo to jiay against
the Greenback theory, that the stamp of the
government fixed the value of money of all
kinds. The Wand silver dollar contains
412J grains nnd is worth ono dollar in gold
everywhere, while tho trade dollar contains
420 grains and is worth ninety cents, The
difference between them is that the govern
ment stamps the cheap dollar and makes it
valuable, while the dollar with the greatest
intriusic valuo fails to receive the necessary
sign and is consequently an inferior coin.
Jack Kelioe's Case.
AN OPISION THAT OV. HARTRANFX WILL
Slti.N HIS DEATH Vl'AIUlAST.
"It is my opinion thatGovornor Hartranft
will sigu the death warrant for Jack Keboe
as soon ns lie arrives from the east," said
Attorney General Lear. "In fact there re
mains nothing else for him to do. The board
of pardons has refused to commute his sen
tence, nnd the order of the court that he be
hung stands as a record. The governor has
never spoken to me on the subject, and no
person haa ever asked me to vote for or
against Kelioe's sentence being commuted
except his counsel when they made their ar
guments. Some people say Kehoo should
be bung, anyhow. Well, perhaps he should,
for I believe he was a bad mnn j but in this
one particular case, where he is charged
with the murder of Langdon fifteen years
ngo, I do uot think he should, and voted to
commute his sentence in the board. There
is no evidence against him. It even seems
hard to givelilm lmpriaoument forlife.when
the other men who were concerned in the
murder were only convicted of murder In
the second degree, and will be released in
twelve years at the furthest. They confessed
to their participation, while a boy who was
fifteen years old at the time Laugdon was
killed, was tho only witness against him to
prove that ho was present, nnd his testimo
ny was shaken by his father, who says his
son was somewhere else at the time. The
governor signed Kehpe's death warrant be
fore and will do It again."

The rumored match between the ex-Prince
Imperial of France and the Princess Thyra
of Denmark seems to be exploded. It prob
ably had no other origin than the Prince's
visit to Denmark. Besides being politically
a mistako on the Princess's side, such an al
Ilance would have been an ill-assorted ono.
The Prince is not much over 22, and looks
much younger, while the Princess is verging
on 25, and looks even older. The lot of
marriageable princes in Europe at the
present moment is rather hard. Leaving
out of the question the Prince Imperial, who
has sunk to tho rank of a mere pretender
though no doubt a wealthy ono with his
.100,000 a year, thanks to the foresight of
the Empress iu investing enormous sums of
money hi English securities, while as yet the
empire existed there is only the King of
Spain who may be considered eligible, and
he perbapsjwill not speedily forget Mercedes.

the provinces now suffering from drought
were visited by similar periods of famine
forty times. That the extreme verge of mis

Decay of Quakerism.
The decay of Quakerism is much to be
regretted! No religious society has ever ex
ercised a more salutary Ipfluenco over if-
members. Integrity of character, purity ol
life, simplicity of manners, and kindness to
both humanity and the brute creation, are
ma characteristics ot tuts amluble sect. As
teachers, the frien'ds excel. They awaken
the dullest Intellects by sympathy, forbear
ance and friendly encouragement. The dis
cipline Is firm, but it is just aud reasonable
The surveillance tho society exercises over
the conduct of its members maintains Its
character at a high average. There are few
or no poor Quakers. Kutuiil aid prevents
poverty. Should disease and the, vicissi
tldes of life overtake some of the less fortu
nate, the society takes care of them, uud the
commuui y U not burdened with their sup
