tiotn which are not worth dUcumlon. In
his tilts against Senator Hill, the last of
which took place a day or two sine", the
bright anil aggressive senator from Maine
hat merely shown a paltry eagerness to
teane and annoy a personal adversary. The
discussion on both ids is a needless revival
of obsolete istues. Of what real conse
quence Is it whether Mr. Hill went willing
ly or reluctantly into tho secession move
ment? hut tense is there in thrashing
over old straw ? In both houes of congrem
there are members who fought or acted In
the inter st of the rtbelllon. Ot what pos
sible public consequence is it whether Mr.
lllll was an early or a tardy secessionist
that this trivial and obsolete question should
be d bated by Mr. Illaine with heat and
ucrlruouy in the senate of the United Statts
eightem jiars after the events have passed
out of politics into history ? It is beneath
the character of a statesman of Mr. Maine's
mark and pretentions to 'eek the bubule
n putallon' by teasing criticisms of the eon
duct of southern members at a period which
has no relation to our preseut politics. A
man of Mr. Maine's acknowledged talents
makes himtelf too cheap by stepping forth
on all occasions which he can find or invent
as a gladiator to fight fellow senators on is
sues which were pertinent in ISCl.butare
spent and obsolete in 1879. Heiswastlag
great abilities which he might employ to
better purpose." There are few but will ad
mit that the Herald is right in its conclu
sions. It is time for Mr. Blaine to direct
his oratory at bleger game.
THE DIVISION ItfJESTlON.
An editorial in the Gazette t Bulletin of
June 14th, headed "Dioceeo of Williams-
port" would indicate that the friends of the
division movement gained a victory In the
Episcopal Convention at Lancaster last
week. It says :
'Tho result, though technically a drawn
game, is virtually a victory for the new
Diocese. Its friends made r.o great mistakes
Its opponents made a great many, the fa
tal effects of vhich they will feel next year.
It was very wise to begin the movement a
year earlier than seemed to be necessary.
The opposition have exhausted their
strength already, while the decisive result
can only be reached next year, when as Is
generally conceded, even by the opponents
the movement for a new Diocese will be
crowned with success, In time for ratification
by the General Convention of 1S80 The
friends of the enterprise are exceedingly en
cou raged over their prospect."
The question before the convention was
upon the appointment of a committee to re
port on the Memorial asking for a division
of the Diocese.at the next meeting. For the
appointment of a committee a majority of
tho clergy voted, but the laity did not con
cur. Many of the clergy who voted for the
committee did so as an act of courtesy,
but are opposed to the division of the Dio
cee. And the same may be said of the
laity. If the vote had been directly uron
the question of division it would have been
ovcrwhemingly defeated. Rev. Dr. Hop'
kins of Williamsport, the father of the ill
vision movement, is probably the writer of
the article in the Gazette it Bulletin. He
claims that the friends of the measure "made
no great mistakes." And in another pluce
he says that "if the last vote had not been a
vote by orders, the new Diocese would have
triumphed at its first encounter," He for
gets that the vote was taken by orders be
cause a "friend ot the measure" demanded
it. If the advocates of a new Diocese are bo
well pleased with the result of the vote, we
cannot understand why they received it with
such decided evidence of chagrin and dis
appointment, one friend of the measure ap
parently forgetting that he was a clergyman
and a gentlemau in the vehemence of his
denunciation of the opposition. There is
no occasion for any bitterness of feeling on
this question. It was clearly the sense of
the late convention that the time for division
has not yet arrived. If at tho next session
a msjority should favor the movement the
minority will undoubtedly submit to the de-
cision with better grace than was manifest
ed by the defeated party this year.

Tho late Legislature passed a supplement
to the several acts relating to the National
Citiard which contains a provision of iuter-
est to county treasurers. It makes it the
duty of t very county treasurer in the Slate
to procure suitable books, in which shall be
entered an account of all money received by
him, under any provisions of tho several
laws relating to the organization and regula
tion of the militia of the State and which
shall be called "the military fund" of such
county. The fund so created is to be applied
exclusively for military purposes, under
prescribed regulations,and the county treas
urerlsto keep an accurate account of till
expenditures and for what purpose. The
treasurer's compensation is to be one per
centum of all such moneys received and dis
burned by him.
Grieving over the Heath of Ms Jailor.

tho wife and child murderer, confined in
Marlon Jail, was told yesterday that the
jailor, Mr. Henry Sides, was dead. Secrest
burst Into wild cries of grief, and rejected
all comfort. He asked, as a last request,
that be might be taken to see the face of the
dead man. This -vat granted. When he
entered the death chamber he fell upon the
coffin and clung to it, crying like a child.
It required five men to get him away. Since
that time he has been wild with grief, refus
ing to cat anything.
Tbe majority of the senate judiciary com
mittee have concluded that a member of
the cabinet could not hold bis position and
at tbe same time be confirmed for a judge of
a Federal court. In other words, it was do
determined that he could not hold both
positions at one time. The nomination of
Secretary M'Crary will accordingly go over
to tho December session and he will remain
In the cabinet until that time. In tbe mean
time Mr. Hayes will have leisure to select
some distinguished citizen of Pennsylvania
for secretary of yiu.J'atriol, :

Immortality ami Ingenoll.
Thousands of people havo read Col. Ingcr-
poll's tender words of eulogy, spoken over
the cifiiii which held tho remains of his
brother, and pronouncud them beautiful. So
they are. They are as bautiful as an ex
quisitely carved marbl" monument and as
col l. They are the words of a finished ora
tor, and whilst they appeal tothe tender sym
pathies of our nature, a moments reflection
hows that they emanate from one groping in
the dark. And in commenting on this beau
tiful funeral oiation, the Troy Times is con
strained to ask : "Is it true that a wreck
must mark at last the eud of each ; and that
all and every life will, at its close, become a
tragedy as sad and as d-itk as can be woven
of the wrap and woof of mystery and death ?
Is the lite of a man like Garrison marked at
the last by a wreck ? Is the death of a babe
which dies with the smile ot innocence upon
its lips a tragedy, sad, deep and dark? Is
humanity tho only religion ? Is the Ever
Living a myth ? In the night of death does
hope only hca a star and nothing more ? Can
the eager ear of listening love only hear the
rustling of a wing and nothing more ? Does
death end all ? All hones of immortality, all
the teachings of thousands of years, all tbo
institutions which tell each and every indi
vidual of something happy and serene beyond
the grave are all lies, or else the requiem
which living brother spake over dead brother
is untre. The people who can stand beside
ihc casket which contains the remains of one
they loved and see in death a tragedy as deep
and dark as can be woven of the wrap and
woof of mystery and death are few. Thosd
who can fall in with the belief that death is
the end, that the soul when it departs from
the body is as dead as the tenement it leaves,
arc ready to accept the dictum that a wreck
must mark at last the end of each. This
country is irreligious ; more than half its
people do not attend church services, but
thoso who think little and ctro lc.-u about ie
ligion are not prepared to join with Mr. ' In
gcrsoll in declaring that all they can hear in
tho deep night of death is the rustling of a
wing. All who have laid away children and
brothers and sisters, parents and connubial
companions, by the eye ot faith see more
than a star. The ear of love hears in tbe
deepest and blackest night of death words
which are grander than ever Inrersoll spake,
and which rise above the roar of the billows
and the shrieks of tho wrecked : "As we
have borne the image of the earthly, we shall
also bear tho image of the heavenly. Now,
this I say brethren, that flesh cannot inherit
the kingdom of God ; neither doth corrup
tion inherit iucorruption. Behold I show you
a mystery ; wo shall not all sleep but we
shall all be changed. In a moment, in the
twinkling of au eye, at the last trump ; for
the trumpet (hall sound, and the dead shall
be raised incorruptible and we shall be chang
ed. For this corruptible must put on im
mortality, so when this corruption shall have
put on inevrruption and this mortal shall have
put on immortality then shall be brought to
pass the saying that is written, Death is
swallowed up in victory. O death, where is
thy sting ? 0 grave, where is thy victory?"
Paul's words, spoken many hundreds of
years ago, aro freighted with dearer hopes to
all of human origin than Ingersoll's rhyth
mical sentences uttered under circumstances
which should have excited faith and nurtured
trust iu immortality. Paul comforts the
mourners and binds up tho bleeding wounds
of affection. We cry aloud for our dead
and the answer is something more than the
echo of our wailing cry. Our faith sees not
a star, but the sun of immortality. Listen
ing love, with hearing quickened by faith
hears more than the iustling of a wing, it
hears the promise that our departed have
gono to higher spheres and higher lives in
which they shall not again taste death. Were
it not for this hope and faith how grievous
might be the sting of death I" Gazttte A

MITTEE M It, DAYAIU)
Less than a week ago it was tho opinion
of everybody that the extra session would
not continue longer than to day, N iw It Is
believed that it will probably be continued
until the first of July, and, that adjourning
then, a second extra session will probably
be called. There seems to be a very general
leslre, I might say longing, for adjourn
ment. Everybody, but the hotels and board
ing houses, Is tired of Congress, and Con
gress Is very weary of Itself. This monoto-
mus session of caucuses and vetoes, of per
sonal explanation and party vindication, lias
nauseated practical people of both parties
and without presuming to fix the blame, It
takes two In make a quarrel, they feel that
they have been treated to politics thickened
with too little statesmanship.
While it is certain that the President will
ien the legislative and army appropriation
bills, it is a certainty that be will veto the
judicial bill. The situation, therefore, seems
to be about this . If the Senate agrees to n
resolution, which will probably be reported
on Wednesday by its appropriation com
mittee, for adjournment on rriday next the
House will agree to it, and in the present
temper of members will not reconsider lis
action if the Senate proposes to lag on the
army bill. Of course If the exigency aroe
that tbe Senate could not git through, it
might extend the time several hours ; but It
would not extend It to an Indefinite period
of much length.
Tbe chances are that the Seoate can get
the army bill passed by Friday if it wants
to. Should tbe President veto the judicial
bill, which actiou is conoid-red certain by
both Republican and Democrats, the ques
tion is, will he call Congress back to provide
for tin judicial expenses of the government?
A week ago leading Republicans sail that
he would not ; that the money for United
States courts was not needed until next Oc
tober, and betweeu that datt! an the date of
the regular wssiiiu rnulil be tided over in
Borne wny. H'i I . del'iciciey appropriation
bill might be pawed early in December to
meet whatever upen-.e might have been
incurred. It is mid though, tlii.t tipou more
carelul reflection the the President has
changed his mind.
It is stated that Attorney General Devens
has sai l that the money tor th federal
judiciary would be required after July 1st
next, and that unle s Congress made some
suitable provision the United Slates would
have to go without juries in its courts ; that
it could not issue a writ, could not even
libel steamer, If nece-iary, and that there
wounl be a dead-lock in the entire judicial
The week opens with this outlook : The
judicial bill as it passed the House will
probably be passed iu the betiate to-day,
witbtiut amendment. It will reach the
President on Wednesday. The veto will
probably be sent in on Tnursday, but mean-
bile both houses m.iy h ve ugret-d to ad
journ on Friday at inn Tin- Seiihte will
work up to that point to disp-ise of Ine army
bill, and il the House relusts to rx ml the
timn tor adjournment ou recount or the veto
oflhejojiei.il bill, it will resi with tbe
President whether he will consider it neces
sary to convene tue two nouses again in
session, or not.
Probably the last (uncus of the session
will meet this forenoon ; its olject will be
to consider tbe deadlock between (senator
Bayard, Chairman ot tbe Senate Finance
Committee, and the majority if bis party
in tbe Senate. At u ricent caucus Senutors
Tburmau, Garland, ana McDmuld were ap
pointed to collier with Senator Bayard, and
endeavor to devise some means by which
the silver bill should be reported without
bis resigning the Chairmanship of the com
luittee. The Senators met and had a long
con'erenve with Senator Bayard but he re
fused to assent to any compromise. He said
the silver bill had been voted upon in com
mittee and he o mid not cuu'ent to anything
that would change the statu uf tbe bill and
contribute to Its advancemeii . The three
Senators will reNirt the result of their talk
with Senator Bayard in caucus to-day, and
then the question of accepting his resigns
tion will come up. It in thought that his
resignation will be accepted and that anoth
er Senator who favors the silver bill will be
apmiiiited iu bis stead, The advocates of

Aoout I all pa-1 teu o cJoeW ou the inormug
of the 11th. a Die broke out in the Atlantio
Oil Works, nt Point Hirrij. A second alarm
was pounded at It) -15 ipiickly fillowtd by a
third. A nuiu'ier of vessels wjre on lire and
tho flames were spreading ra,iidlv. A ship
was strutk by bghtuing duriug the thunder
storm about that hour.
Ibe vessels destroyed arc the American
ship Huil-ou, the Italian larks Fa and Quin
to, the Geniuu brig F. Itevk, aud Canadian
bark Ilion. The flames originated iu the
bark Fa, from a bolt of lightning during tbe
beuvy thuuder storm, which prevailed about
10:30 A M, From lb Fa the flames com-
munica'eu in ine wnan, winen was soon
wrapped iu tbuitw, destroying the otlioo and
all the books au-1 aooouuls of the firm. From
the wharf the ttiines leaped to a long row of
oil barrela.aud iheso were soon burning fierce
iy. Next the still houses caught, and the
smoke at this time was perfectly terrible,
About 11 o clock one ol tho stills exploded
with a loud report, but as tho fierce flames
uau uriveu ine urcuuu uoiu the spot, it was
followed by iw accident or injury to Ibe
large crowd that surrounded the blazing
works. Tbe bark Fa, ia which the flames
originated, was loaded wilh over 1200 cases
of oil. The Ilion, tho vessol next attacked,
had on board about 2000 barrels. Tho Hud-
son.which was nearly ready lor departure had
7000 barrels. The Quinto and the F. Reck
wero empty. The latter vessel, which at L30
A. M.. was burnt almost to the water's edire.
reached the wharf about an hour before the
Cro started, having tho day before finished
unloading at Christian streot wharf. Tho
Schuylkill harbor tug Wavo was tho first
aid to reach the scene, and for over two hours
this vessel was actively employed in towing
the surrounding shipping to a point of safely.
By the time tbe Fire Department reached the
scene five vessels and nearly 10,00 barrels of
od were blazing fioroely. Although it was at
once upparent that their efforts would bo of
little avail, the fireuion set to work bravely
to save tho neighboring vessels, wharves,
thedding and empty oil barrels. Before 12
o'clock tho water gnvo out. Sleanwhilc, the
firo kept spreading, and at 1 1'. M,, tho flames
extended from tho still houses to tho wharf, n
distance ol nearly 300 yard. Mranwhilc.tlio
steam tugs had been telegraphed l'or,nnd upon
their arrival they wero put to woik pouring
streams of water into tho blan'ng vessels to
keep tho oil barrels with which they wero
aden from exploding. In this latter event
tho surface of tho river would have been cov
ered, with the blazing oil and tho half dozen
vessels still untouched by tho flames would
have been added to the general destruction.
When firo starts in a vescl saluratcd with
petroleum, it spreads tapidly, so when light
ning set tho il'ifortuiiali' bark Fn in the"
fhtnes, the crew hastily gatlieii'il up a few of
their effects aud tvanipeiel for shoie. From
the Fa the flames soon spread lo the other
vessels above mentioned, causing their cicws
to start rapidly lor lerru lirma with what few
of their effects they could sualcli up iu the
coufusion. The captain of tho Qitintoti was
in lather a worse predicaincut than any of
lits crew, cseiping lo tho shore with notbing
on but his undershirt and pants, Scaled up
on their lugage, tho unfortunate mariners
watched Ifio flimcs lick up what to thtui was
their homes. The crows of a majority of the
burned vessels aro all foreigners, and aro now
destituto in a foreign climo Through the
efforts of tho agents of tho destroyed ves'cts
a majority of the sailors havo secured board
ing places hi the various hotels in vicinity of
the sceno of the conflagration, Ono of the
Incidents of total depravity furnished by oc
casions of great excitement is fouud in the
fact that the captain of a tuir, whoso name
was not mentioned, was asked to nslst in
pulling n vessel out of a spot where it was in
imminent danger of being burned. He re
fused to assist unless the owners of tho ves
sel promised hitu $5000. It is needless to
say be didn't get the job.
The heavy smoke which filled tho sky and
bright blaze which could be seen fiom all por

that nothiug cool 1 be saved but a few of the
empty barrels, tho agent of the works an

were many laborers employed in tho refinery,
aud hundieds of men who prefer to bo bunt

Owning the largest retail stock of Dry Goods In Philadelphia

we submit that we are in a position to offer unequaled Inducements to all

own business, is conceded lo be the most conveniently appointed and tlie

J the faco of cvcrithln) , Wanamakcr & Brown increased
their great Clothing business last year at Oak 11 all ncaily a quarter
of a million dollars, and for 1870 the new plans will make the
house more popular and increase the business much more.
Eighteen years m tho people''! service at the old corner of Sixth
and Market has taught us how to do the business well.
Whatever may be said, no house in the United States sells any
thing like so much Clothing at Retail as Oak Hall, and no house
in Philadelphia sells more than a quarter as many goods as
Mr. Wanamakcr sells fn Clothlntj alone. Doing this large
business shows the people's regard for our goods, and enables us
to buy cheaply and sell at small profits.
New patterns have been made this year and new styles Intro-1
duced through Mr. Robert C. Ogdcn (formerly partner of the
famous firm of Devlin & Co., New York), who is now associated
with Oak Hall, and will give his whole energies and valuable
experience to improving the manufacture of our ISoys' and Men's
Clothing. We tlo not buy Clothing like the dealers, but make
it expressly for our own sales. The Spring stock is splendid,
and no other make of goods, so far, have as much merit, or are
told as cheaply.
Impressions have been erroneously given to the cfiect that
Mr. John Wanamaku', .ho founded Oak Hall, is not interested in
the old store, and tls.it it docs not have his attention ; on the
contrary, his ownership of it remains unchanged, and ho has lost
none of his love for it. Every day finds him supervising all its'
departments. Mr. William 11. Wanamakcr spends his entire time
on the Oak Hall business.
