All over the country, from all par
ties, goes up the cry for honest men.
The masses are getting to see that ras
cality must be put down, if tho coun
try is to preserved. The New ork
democracy nobly put the heel upon
dishonest men in the party there, and
has strenghtened itself by the step it
has taken to punish the Tammany
thieves. Jerremiah S. Black, of this
state, in a recent letter, sounds the
alarm and begs Democrats to put
down rascals in our party, when they
ask for offices, and even went so far se
to advise the democrats of York county
to scratch their tickets if a dishonest
man was known to be upon it In
some few quarters honest republican*
fioe that they must do the same thing
to prevent their men, who are now
holding power, from stealing every
dollar of the public funds. The
thieves in the radical ranks are thiek
as dies in summer, and it is there ee- j
pecially where reform is needed.
Where occasionally a democrat is
found dishonest in a small amount,
there can be found ten radical plun
derers guilty of stealing, each to ten
times the amount The REPORTER
stands among the first of journals
to enter its protest against longer nom
inating scampe and rascals for office,
aud we are glad to see the good men of
our party everywhere taking sides the!
.same way, and the radcials must fall j
in too, for the men they have placet! in |
office are committing the most gig.lll-1
tic and unheard of stealings.
The Pittsburg Pari, that able and
staunch organ of the democracy of
western Pennsylvania, has an article in
this same strain, from which it will be
seen that the people are becoming
aroused, and that the cry is for honest
men. The heart of the honest Centre
county democrats beats in unison with
this cry, and wc mistake the signs of
tbe times, if the democracy of this ]
county will encourage roguery and j
empty, silly paper statesmanship.;
We here submit an extract from
the Past, and ask the democracy ofj
Centre connty,whether they made any
efforts in the same direction, and
whether such eflort was put down by
an honest expression of the party, or
by fraud and rascality.
The Pod says:
Iu Chicago both parties have agreed to
select the first citixen* for municipal offl. es,
and in New York, such men as Charle* O
Conor and Bamnel J, Tilden have content
ed to take the nomiaations for Assembly,
to endeavor to rescue tbe city and State
from the bauds of plunderers- Thetimehas
arrived all over the country, whea the con
tent ofleadine citizens, outside of political
rings, should t>e secured to serve society in
what has been deemed insignificant OCCM, !
for instance City Councils and State Legit-1
lature. Ot late years these placet hare
been left to those who souirht them, not
with a view to the interests of the commu
nity so much as to accomplish some private
purposes. The stern enforcement of party
fines has thrust forward weak and corrupt
men for public poeitions, and kept back I
horo-t and worthy citizen*.
Unworthy Candidate.
The leading Republican paper of
Yates county, New York, openly an
nouncee its determination to oppose the
the Radical nominee for Senator in
that district, and declares him un
worthy of the supjxirt of the Republi
cans of the district This is as it
should be. If newspaper editors
would more frequently condemn un
worthy aspirants to office, in their own
family, and refuse them support, when
by bargain and intrigue, or other
fratidulcnt'ineans (as they always do,)
they succeed in obtaining a party
nomination, there would be fewer cor
rupt meu holdiu" responsible posi
tions, aud tbe public service would lie
correspondingly benefitted.
The above from the True Democrat,
the democratic organ of Mifflin coun
ty, is sound advice, and it is getting
to be high time that bouest men of all
parties act upon it, if the scoundrels who
arc creeping into place are to be put
The Reform Democrats, at tbe iu
stauce of Charles O'Conor, have nom
inated Horatio Seymour, of Utiea, as
candidate for Assembly in New York
city, against the Tammany candidate,
Thomas Field; Seymour telegraphed
his acceptance.
Good ; let tbe democracy thus con
tinue and nominate her best meu for
the legislature, aud soon the right kind
of reform will be had.
The Pittsburg Pod vouches for it
that Col. Thomas A. Scott is not a re
publican, as many suppose, but is and
always was a democrat, never having
voted a republican ticket in his lite,
and always a consistent democrat.
That is the right metal.

Charles O'Conor states that it can
be clearly shown that Tweed aud his
associates fraudulently obtained from
the Broadway Bank, without color of
right, some* $5,000,000. Recovery

within ninety davs. Woodward was
the corrupt agent through whom
Tweed worked. An opportunity will
be shortly given to show how the war
rants were obtained front Conuoiy's

Mayor Hall either had a dollar or
knew what was going on, but blames
tbe Mayor for standing by others and
acting as a shield after the facts be
came known. The burden of proof
lias against Tweed, aud tbe enginery
of the law is directed against him.

London, October 23. —The ex-Em j>e
ror Napoleon, wbo is now at Chisel
hurst, has issued a manifesto, in which
he denies any participation in the Bo
napartist intrigues and avers that the
alleged attempts of his adhereuts to
create a popular reaction iu France
in his favor with a view to the rcslora
tiou of tbe imperial government were
conducted without bis knowledge or
sauetion. He states that he does not
accept the vote of the Assembly by
wbicb it deposed the Bonapartist dy
nasty from tbe seat of government as
tbe voice of the nation, and claims, as
he always has done, that a plebicite is
tbe only just and recognisable medium
through which the nation can speak.
He refuses to release his officers from
their oaths of allegiance to his admin
istration, but meanwhile counsels them
to support any party of order which
may appear to be best suited to the
country in the present crisis.
The Polar Sea Discovered

George O'Connor, a Mormon leader
in San Francisco, is taking! counsel on

The air of England is full of start
ling rumors. V ague many of them
aasurdeiy are, but their very existance
is remarkable. First we are told that
Bradlaugh, extending Disraeli's in
uendo about the condition of the
Queen, actually declared at a monster
meeting held in Londcn last night
that her Majesty was insane, and that
a regency should be intrusted with the
care of the "tight little isle" until the
republic should be declared aud ac
cepted. Aud uext, and if anything
more rensatiooal, is the storv that the
great landed aristocracy of England is
endeavoring to form, or has actually
formed, an alliance with the laborers
as against middle-class rule. How des
perate must be the political and social
situation be when such a measure as
this is even thought of; and that it is
thought of, and that seriously, is
shown by the citations of our Londcn
correspondent. While to add to the
whole bewildering mass we have the
clamors of the British working-men
ior tbe separation of state aud church.
Is England on the verge of revolution,
or are these rumors not signs of the

operations are continued.
It may be more convenient to notice the
Airther development of thce facts in con
nection with a few of the principal towns.
Bethlehem is the principal town outside
of Easton and was originally settled by the
I'nited Brethern or Moravians of the Vni
ted States. It i- situated on a high -ite of
ground on the left bank of the Lehigh at
the mouth of the M-mockisy creek. The
scenery in the vicinity, and indeed all
along the Lehigh lor twelve miles to Eas
ton, "is not *tir|>a**cd by the finest park and
forest scenery in England." The photo
graphers in the vicinity have not neglected
this fact, but have taken several hun
dred different steroscophic view- which
may furni-U some adequate idea f this lo
cality to those who have not had the privil
ege of seeing it otherwise.
Thotown has alway- elicited much ad
miration from travelers and viiitor-, a num
ber of whom stay here during the hot sum
mer months. In 1845 the principal build
ing* of uotc -were the spacious church ca
pable ot containing about 'JWU persons, the
Brothers house, and Sister* house where
those who chose could live in single bleated
neas and still earu an independent support;
the corp*e-houo, cemetery, niu-cum of the
Young Men'* Missionary Society, contain
ing a cabinet of mineral* and collection of
curiosities from all part* of the world, the
the very celebrated seminary for young la
dies and the water work* on the Manocki
y, said to have been In operation mors
than ninety years and to have furnished
the model for those in Philadelphia. The
Moravians are very fond of music and
have a nnrnber of bands in the town.
When a member the community die* they
have a peculiar ceremony which may now
not be observed but which wa* formerly a
part of the peculiarities.ot the sect; four
musicians went to the tower of the church
with trumpet* anil announced the event by
performing the death dirge. The body
was immediately removed loathe "corpse
house" where the remains were deposited
for three day*. The weeping willows
which overshadowed the rc*ling place of
the dead convey* an impre-Mon of the
solemnity and silence which reigns in the
narrow bouse prepared for all mankind.
It stands detached from till other building*
excluded from all coiiniiuuicatioowith the
fuss and bustle of the business part* of tho
town. On the third day the funeral ser
vice* are. performed at the church. The
i corp*e is brought from the dead-house to
the lawn in front of the church, and alter
several strains of solemn music the nroocs
! sion moves towards the grave, with the
band still playing, which continue- some
time after the coffin U deposited. Among
the grave* may seen that of the pious
Heckewelder, born 1743,|died 18551.

Dear Editor.—You will please pardon
uie for making my Arat letter a #ort of

secnu to etlip#e the more eriou topic*,
about which I propose to write you occa
sionally and therefore speak of it For
several week* already we had been prom
ied a ballon a*cenmn hut were doomed
to disappointment until to day. The '•ele

growing larger. Home think it will be

is already tr.ore than full. Thousand# have
been ready for hours, and although tired
and disappointed, yet, have determined to
tight it out jn that line if it t ike# all day.
l%e ballon ha* been purchased from Mr.
Wi*o, the aeronaut, by the merchant# of
the town, for a bu#ine# scheme. The ob
ject in thus delaying the people for a whole
day is evident, to every one. Hince the

of eye# followed him until he wa# at last

Fire proor Hiiildiugx Not Fire
When the new* came ott Monday
of the enormous ravages of the lire in
Chicago, it was discredited by many
persous, because among the buildings
reported to have been destroyed weic
several known to be constructed en
tirely of incombustible materials, and
therefore, in the ordinary ar -eptation
of the term, tire-proof. The maguili
eent Chicago Tribune building, for
example, bad nothing about it of wood
except the floortug ami fillings, the
! walls being uf stone and brick, the
:door beams of iron, arched with brick,
and the roof of iron. Of a similar
character were the Historical Society
building, the great Union Dv|ol on
iaike street, ami, if we are rightly in-,
j formed, the Custom House. That all
llu-e could have fallen before the
dames seemed impossible. Nevertbc
le the tidings have bcn only too sad
ly continued ; ami iu inference would
seem to be, that what are commonly
called fireproof buildings are not
proof agaiust fire after ail.
The explanation of the plieiioturuou
if found in the unusal circumstances
which gave rise to it- From the de
scription oft! .• progress of the confla
gration, as witnessed by Mr. Abu I
Palmer ami others, -lauding oil the
roof of the Trciuoiil House, it ap|H-ai*
that the luul was so intense that it
coubi nut tie endured by hutiiau be
ing* at a distance uf several blocks;
brick walls weakened and wavered
like india-rubber, ami niasdve granite
slalis cracked into thousauds of piece*.
Another account reprr-enta the sur
face of the river as boiling and giving
off steam. No sooner would tlie
dames touch one cud of a building
than tbev would burst forth at the
other. The city, in a w.rd, wasm
velnpcd u a sort of reverlwratory
furnace like that employed to melt
meialic ores. Il is quite Ut)philoso
phical, iu view ot these facts, to at
tribute the failure of the supposed fire
proof methods of construction to any
minor defects. Unbroken walls of
stone or brick, with roofs of the same
material, would have crumbled away
like sand under such a trial.
The only perfect protection of a city
against the fate of Chicago i* the adojn
t.on of a system of w ide streets, the
isolation ot groat warehouses full of
merchandise, and the absolute proliini
tioii of wooden building*. Ihe fail
ure of the attempts of the Commu
nists to burn up Paris proves that
where these conditions are observed a
general conHagralioti is impoaxible.
There is not enough fuel to give the
fire an oiicontrotable headway, and
herein alone is safety to be looked for.
The Nt. lands Republican thus con'
eludes uu able article on the politic*!
situation :
It is urged with much reason, that
the couulry can ill afford another four
years of radical rule, with the Union
maintained in it* present abnormal,
unrestored condition, ku klux disor
ders and ku klux laws continued, ex
ecutive interference persisted iu, uml
the process of centralization made com
plete ; ami that if these things arc to be
arrested at all.the radical |arty must
IKS unseated ut Washington, just us it
was unseated in Missouri, by the dero
crats abstaining from a presidential
j nomination, and leaving the nomina
tion of a ticket which they may su|-
port to the liberal element of the oth
er party. Even if the democrats
could hope to nominate u presidential
ticket and elect it, with G roes beck, or
Hnucock, or Hendricks, or Clnue, or
anyone else at the head, would not the
victory, it is asked, be empty and bar
ren ? Would not the radical congress
tie the hands of the democratic presi
dent, und give us the historv of tlie
Andrew JoTiusou administration over
again? On the other hand, with
I Grunt und the administration party
overwhelmingly defeated, as M'Clurg
was defeated in Missouri, a liberal
Hiid patriotic republican made Presi
dent, and u majority of democrats and
'liberals chosen to congress, would not
the result, though materially different
'from a full democratic triumph, be an
inestimable improvement ou the pres
ent order of tilings? Il would, it is
true, involve concession which the na
tional democracy would find it hard to
make ; but would uot the happy de
liverance of the harrassed Southern
states, and their restoration to the co
equality and dignity they arc uow de
barred from, lie a sufficient compensa
tion for these concessions? And
would not the real restoration of the
Union which followed the triumph of
the new party he its claim
on the gratitude and confidence of the j
|K<ople ?

The President wa- received at Port-j

tr-duced to the IM >pte. He arose and
made the following thrilling *{eeeh:
"1 have a vivid recollection of visit
