A correspondent of the Sun draws
a picture of tho shame heaped upon
the country by high officials at Wash
ington, who disgrace the natiou by the
licentiousness they introduce into the
departments, where females of doubt
ful character are employed as clcrka
and who owe their appointments to tho
influence of i*enatora and congress
men, whose mistresses they are. These
are facts which all decent people
should consider and denounce. This
correspondent says many excellent
ladies whom misfortune ha* overtaken
accomplished, capable, and worthy to
appear in any circle, art? earning their
bread by what may be called hard
labor in the departments. Others
equally respectable, the ohildreu or
wives of gallant soldiers who fell in
battle and others agaiu no less meri
torious maintain themselves in the
same way. For certain duties they
arebetter fitted than men and are worse
paid. These classes have lost no es
teem by the adversity which he* com
pelled them to seek this mode cf sup
port at some cost of pride and former
But an element has been brought in
among these worthy women which is
an outrage upon them, a disgrace to
the public service, and a glariag scan
dal seen of all men. It is notorious
that Senators, Representatives, and
officials have imposed upon the de
partments loose characters who are
utterly unfit for such employment aud
unworthy to mingle with the ladies
who are contaminated and insulted
by their presence. There is no use
of mincing phrases about a (palpable
fact or attempting to extenuate it un
der the cover of mistakes accidentally
made. Members of Congress have
pensioned their mistresses by scores on
the treasury and the same thing is
true of many of the more important
officers in the departments through
whose agency appointments are made.
If the instances were rare some ex
cuse might be pleaded, but when the
proof that this evil has taken large
proportions and demoralized every de
partment, then it demands public crit
icism. The truth if fully told would
astound the country, not only as to
those who are most responsible for its
spread, among whom figure a large
number of the Christian statesmen.
Notorious women occupy places of
trust in many of the offices the heads
of which aspire to moral position and
figure as churchmen. Others lea
known but equally criminal are scat
tered through the the in
fluence of their "friends" in Congreer
or the favor of other* having the ear
of power.
We noticed, in last weeks Reporter,
a meeting of landlords at Tyrone.
The Altoona Tribune, of 4th inst.,
furnishes further particular* as follows:
'A meeting of landlords representing
the counties of Blair, Huntingdon,
Mifflin, Centre, .Clearfield, and possi
bly one or two others, was held at Ty
rone, in the Ward House, on Monday.
Mr. W. W. Coleman, of Lewistown,
was elected President, and Mr. John
F. Miller, of Huntingdon, Vice Presi
dent. The fact that no official report
of the proceedings had at the meeting
was sent us for publication is prima
facie evidence that the bonifaces did
their work without the assistance of a
Secretary. We learn from outside
sources, however, that about a dozen
landlords were in attendance.
The counties named are all embrac
ed within the limits of the workings
of the law commonly known as "local
option," or in other words, the anti-li
cense law, and the prime object of the
meeting was to devise ways and means
by which to make good the losses dai
ly entailed upon the landlords by the
recent absolute abatement of the wbis
ky traffic. It was proposed that a
uniform advance in the price of board
ing be made, with a corresponding
increase for transient custom ; but, af
ter consideration, the question was
laid over for the present. Another
object of this guild is understood to
be undying hostility to any and all
candidates who may run for office ou
the local option platform, or who is
understood to be a local option man. —
This is the third meeting which has
been held by this association."
As. all the above counties went
heavily for local option, the landlords
must develope remarkable tactics —
better than last spring—if they wish
to reverse the decision given at the
polls at the late spring elections, and
as it seems they desire to carry the
question into politics, which party do
they intend shall espouse their cause
per te t *
—The Constitutional Convention on
Friday, defeated section thirty-six of
the article on legislation by a vote of
44 yeas to 60 nays. The section re
jected reads as follows :
SECTION 36. The sale of intoxicating
liquors or mixtures containing the
same for use as a beverage shall here
after be prohibited. The Legislature
shall within one year from the adop
tion of the Constitutltion enact laws
with adequate penalties forthe enforce

This is u little oiuiuou* in these politi

fatuated with an itinerant howler,
named Fairbanks, who mounted a
box at "Strychnine" cotuer,aud howl
ed for "well-paid labor aud opposed
Chinese labor," and informs his read
ers iu his local columns that "men are

that." //a* Bvllefoute imported

else, goes a step farther than ths Re

Thi* humaue method will fail, unless
the "cuttiug off" is carried farther on.
As for Brown, he would not give the
true reason for the radical increase iu
population and its object. He sup
ports the negro naturaliiatiou law to
be found in the 15th amendment, aud
adopted by the radicals. But the
Watchman, cute in most things, has
not a wotd to say about the descen
dants of Ham, more ignorant, filthy,
and debased than ever the Chinese
were or ate, and who choose to steal
rather than work or learn auy mechan
ical trade ; the "cutting off a pig tail,"
or any other tail, will not help the
matter—the radicals have takeu care
of that in the 15th amendment, which
declares, "The rights of citizens of

The Philadelphie Age, of 12ib,
gives a glowing account of the work
ings of Denver A Rio Grand Narrow
Gauge railroad of which over 100
miles have been iu successful opera
; tion for some; time as the subject of
narrow gauge may be of some little iu
j terest to some readers in these parts,
jwe make the following extract from
j th; article of the Age.
The road has a gauge of three feet
instead of four feet eight and a half
inches, and from this cause there has
been a saving of thirty-seven and a
half per cent, in the first cost of con
st ruction, a most important item to
the stockholders. A narrow gauge
I road will do all the bus ness required,
and at the same time return a larger
per cent, of profit per mile than a
broad gauge road. In April, 1873,
the expenses of a business at the rate
of about $4,000 per mile per annum,
was about fifty per cent, of the earn
ing* which with ordinary labor at two
dollars per day, all skilled labor very
high, supplies coetly because of the re
moteness from Eastern markets gradi
ents seventy-five feet per mile, curves
six degrees per hundred feet, a new
road bed and small total business,
must be considered as satisfactory.
Duringthe first jearafter its opening
the expenses on the Kansas Pacific
Railway were seventy-nine and a half
percent. ofiU groas earnings. The
rates charged by the company are a.
bout the same as thoae in use on most
of the Denver Pacific. At these rates
it is believed the present rolling stock
is capable of earning a yearly revenue
of $756,000 on the main line of one
hundred and eighteen miles, which in •
crease will give a great reduction in
the petceotage of expenses.
How cautious one should be in
playing a trick or joke, and the seri
ous results that often follow, it again
witnessed by the following : A man
named Anderson, living in DeKalb
county, while lying at night to fright
en the tenant on his brother's farm,
was shot and killed by his brother.

The Supreme Court at Washington
has just rendered a decision upon a
question under the Confiscation Act
not heretofore tried. A lawyer oftbis
District joined the Rebellion early in
the war. His property was confisca
ted and sold for 920,000. Upon his
return, the person who had purchas
ed it paid the former owner 910,000
additional and received a deed in fee
simple. A short time since the first
owner died and his heirs brought
suit to recover the property holding
that the Confiscation act deprived the
first owner of all legal right to the
property during bis life and conse
quently he had no power to sell it or
give a deed. The court held that the
first owner bad a legal right during
his life to dispose of the reversionary
interest and consequently, the sale in
the praept case was valid, and his
heirs have no a i#j,rn upon the proper

The Treasury Department in Wash- 1
itigioii keeps two wagons to carry its '
mails and other package* in thai cit v.
One of these is a two-horse office wag
on Rtid the other a one-horse mail
wagon. Yet it appears from tho re
port made by the Mtpci inteudent ot '
ths Treasury Building on February t
3, 1873, and published iu Houso Ex- '
ecu live Docuiueut No. 182, that "the

the Government during the twelve
months of the last fi-< a al year exactly ,
$11,687.46. A considerable portion of ,
this money was expended for icpaits,
aud the accouut ot this expenditure
from July 31, 1871, to June 20, 1872
is set forth in the following table,

The repairs of harness for these two
wagons also cost the neat little sum
of 11,131.88, On one single day June
29, 1872 these repairs amounted to
1384.73 ; aud besides the repairs of
the wagon specified iu the above table
the Superintendent likewise reports
that the Jrenairs of carriages— observe
this is in addition to the two wagons
—coet in that year 81,176 70.
The two wagons above mentioned,
which cost $2700 a year for repairs,
are employed uot mora thau two
hours a day in carrying light loads
These loads are made up ot mail mat
ter aud packages of little weight. All.
the heavy freight of the Treasury De-i
partment is otherwUe provided for.
The coal and wood are delivered by
the contractors. So are the stationery
and blank books; aud the wagons of
the Goverment Printing Office deliv
er at the department all the blank
forms and other printed matter that
are required from that establishment.
The express companies receive and de
liver all their freight at the depart
ment : and the local express compan
ies are employed when heavy burdens
have to be taVeu about the city. As
the report of the Superintendent
shows, there was paid out of the con
tingent fund to private parties for
hauling between July 1, 1871 and
June 30, 1871 the sum of $1,295 74.
This would seem to leave but little
work to be done by the two wagons
with their three horses and yet, as this
official report declares they cost near
ly 81,000 a month to keep ruuing
and $225 a month for repairs alone !
Along with these pleasant expen
ditures under this moiel and high
toned Administration, a large stable
is maintained at the Treasury Depart
ment a little south of the main edifice
and in this stable some twenty or thir
ty horses belonging to the department
but not employed for mail or office
work'are kept at the public expense,
under the oversight of a Buperiuten
dent of Stables and an assistaut whose
salaries are reported as amounting to
$5,297 54 ,a year. In these stables
with such competent and high-priced j
care there are also from fifteen to tweu- j
ty handsome carriage* trotting wag
ons and the like ; and every fine after
noon the heads of bureaux and favor
ite clerks in the Secretary's office ap
pear upon the avenue with supcrd
turnouts thus provided. Of these,
carrirges five are said to be set apart
for the special use for the Commissio
ner of Internal Revenue, his assistant,
and his female private secretary.'
The hostlers drivers and footmen whoi
perform their part in this elegant dis-;
play ar#duly borne on the rolls of J
the Treasury Department and are
paid as messengers and laborers ; alb
of them of course beinjjj appointed by
competitive examination under the
latest and best rules of civil service l
Thus it is that wherever this Admin
istration is toncbed with the scalpel of
honest analysis flagrant corruption
unblushing public robbery and reck
less immorality are demonstrated.
Such is Grantism such is the present
choice of the once pure and noble Re
publican party.
Mr. Edward 8. Stokes, " the gen
tlemanly and popular murderer, " ia
to have a new trial. If ever there
was clear and unmistakeable mockery
of justice, it is embodied in the pro
ceedings of the New York judiciary
with reference to tliia celebrated caae.
Though the Court of Appeals which
yesterday distinguished itself by grant
ing the interesting prisoner another
chance for his life were to present a
string of technical reasons twice as
long as that wMch it does present the
public would still entertain this opin
ion—and public estimate io matters
so easily understood is usually very
correct. The points assigned as the
basis for the decision will no found in
another column. They are trivial
enough any one may perceive at a
glance ; but when a man is drowning
he will grasp readily at a straw and
that Stokes grasped at and caughi
singular to say has carried him at lean

A Con I Mine Horror.
Eight Dead Bodies Found.
Shamokin, Pa., June 10.—Tliie afternoon
an explosion occurred in the Henry Clay
'colliery, operated by tha Philadelphia
' and Reading coal and iron company,
inepr this place- Tho colliery had not
I been inspected for some lime, but was al
■ ways considered safe.
Conrad Drumhetter, inside hast, went
into the old working, on tha water level,
when an explosion immediately followed,
it is supposed, by fire damp being fired,
which communicated with the airways
from the water level into the slope below,
whero the men worked.
The men in this section of the coal re
gion, not being accustomed to black damp,
thought it was powder that had been set
on fire. They remained in tho slope un
til overcome with black damp, and start
ing to come up mat a body of after damp
and fall senselaas ar.d smothering. The
moro stronger men menaged to get out and
giving tho alarm the others followed, and
upon reaching the top of tha slope fall, be
ing overcome.
John Hayes, outside bota, hearing the
alarm, immediately went to their reacue,
After proceeding about 600 yard* he fell
face downward in a pool of water and was
drowned. Knoch Magenski wa* f >und
drowned by hi* aide.
Up to ten o'clock p. m. tea dead rainera
have been taken out. Many of the men
came from the surrounding mine* to ren
der aaaiatance.
The expitemonl was intense, wives and
children rushiug to the scene of the die
aster finding husbands and brothersdoad or
gasping for breath, while others were
esgorly watching the arrival of friends on
the slope wagons from below.

I entered a window at the east tide, and
found tba stove red hot and the roam vary
warm ; this frightened me, thinking
there might ho some one dwelling in the
school bouse. However, I entered at last,
and what I did there you all know. 1 had
just the same books at home, and could
have no use for tkem. The reason that I
took them was simply U>. rouse sad eacita
the pupils and teacher.
Seeing all remain quiet, I did tba asm*
deed over again a short time after, this
lime leaving a not# there containing re
mark* such as threatening lb sir life, and
using very profane language. Peace still
continued, and I was not satisfied. This
yearniug and tempting wa* incessant.
• About a month afterward 1 started on
| another burglarieu* expedition. This was
the Jeffereon Sunday School. I entered it
forcing open a blind on the south side,
about 2 o'clock A M By this lima 1 be
gan to feel eome sorrow for theve cruel
acts, and began to rend some of lb* most
pious and and best of the library books I
had thus obtained by theft. They t were,
indeed, very good books; and having
read the first one through. 1 began to real
ixe and parceiva my great wickedness. I
was much comforted, and read several
more with good result. But I could not
feel easy. I next broke open and robbed
tbe school house en the Athens road and
tha one at Leeds. After that I wanted to
repent, and was about to confaM my crimes
to the Rev. Father O Driscoll and Mr. A.
M. Dehorn, a CaUkill lawyer, when i saw
the toliowing glowing notice, in the CaU
kill Recorder, which was probably tb#
reason that I lost all desire to make an
open confession of my guilt, for it wee
stated in such a singular and inciting man
ner that it seemed to relieve me of my
sorrow and distress and rouse up the old
desire to do further mischief:
"The tohoel house in Leeds was broken
open on Tuesday night, and in the morn
ing the contenu of the desks, the furni
ture, maps, Ac-, were found piled pro
miscuously on the floor. A letter was
left stating tha determination to commit
depredations—Mid .they bad commenced
at the small school house on tb* Atheas
toad (the ona that was burned last night)
—and that they were on their way Wast,
Ac. They claim to be in the service of
Belial—and no doubt are right here."
Aa a counter-irritant I then read tha
fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth
chapters of St. Matthew, and retired to my
night's rait, much relieved of my uneasi
ness ; but my great ains could aevar be
hidden or dropped from my .mind, and a
spark of this intense desire to perform
seme unnatural exploit was still smoul
deringjin my braina
About the last of April wa ware visited
by an old friend ef ours from Albany, who
went about sometimes In the spring as a
scissors grinder. He was an honest, up
right man, respected by all who knew
him. We gladly invited him on this eve
ning to supper, and that he could pace the
night witli us. After supper we had kapt
up a pleasant ai d dalightftil conversation
with aacb other, as is usually the case
with true friends that have not seen
each ether for e long time ; and in thia
way waa that tveuing passed.
We ahoweJ our friend on a aefa, on
which were placed tome quilts and blank
eta fbr a covering. My parenta then re
tired up ataira. I waa now the only one
up, and sat down by the te'slp and read
for about half an hour, whan I felt aleepy
and waa about to enter my room, when
suddenly I waa aroused from all sleepiness
by this strong sensation in my mind to
execute some uncommon or unnatural and
inhuman juggle. The pewer waa much
atronger and more sudden than I had ev
er experienced it before. 1 wanted to re
lieve myself of it, but I waa utterly help
less. I began to become very hot, my
ears were wringing, and my heart beat
very loud and quick for a short time, and
the hair on my head seemed to be stand
ing upright. AM this lasted hardly a
minute, when I began to become cool
agaia, and everything wae very quiet. I
took up a small Testament and began to
read. I bad scarcely flaished the first
verse when some violent and electric force
swept past my face. It was like a flash of
lightning, if it could have been directly
before my eyes, and without any noise. I
dropped toy arm gf.d book with a loud
clap on the little table before me. J be
gsn to shake and tremble In every limb.
Clreat fear salted me for a little while, af
ter which everything loomed .to rub iuto
my|brini Imt a few tpomeuti 09 my bed
In great confusion. Then I went out of :
doors, lamp in hand, and searched foranl
aiour hatchet, and went hack into my j
room I could think of nothing lu'j
arniKinu MMI OHK on THR UITO.
I pretted my forehead against a |>ane of
giat, thinking tha sudden cold would
liaco *lllllO effect in producing a ditTorant
rental ion, hut all In vain. I turned down'
|tha lamp ♦try low, took up tha hatchet
| and enterad tha room of my friend, tha
J scissor* grinder, who was ileeping sound-
I ly, 1 placed tha lamp on the floor direct
ly below hit head. 1 then cautiously bant'
, over him to tea in what position hit head
. lay. I look tha hatchet and raitod it up
: 1 to tha height of tha coiling
J 1 wat about to turn away aud leave tha
man in peace, when I wat again seised by
the demon, and wat forced la raita tha
hatchet and give the fatal blow; but it:
termed at if the itrangth and force of the
blow that I wat about to implant tn tba
> haad f tl.a peaceful aleeper had all enter
- ed into the handle af tha hatchet. I with
r held the blow, louk up tha lamp aud
r hatchet end want back to my own rvom,
. greatly troubled in mind and spirit. I wat |
t 'about to giva a loud tcream, but I had no i
. strength far it. 1 sat thai* as helpless as a |
- babe, when alt at once a painfttl thrill or (
t ttlng pierced my heart and brains and i
t roused ma up like a tuattigc. I took the
i lamp and hatchet up onee mora and en- 1
s tared the raom of tha sleeping man, plac- (
ing the lamp where I did before aad rais- ,
a ing the hatchet quickly, but my heart
tailed me. My forehead became wet
r widi perspiration and I stood there in de
! Uriuru twinging tha hatchet up and down
r above the bead of the man, when at length
'i 1 struck the man on the forehead! but the
d blow teemed to have no force at I dealt it
;•, lie breathed with a deep voice, and doubi
- usg of its fatality I tlruok him twice with
>r the cutting part of the hatchet, not know
ing U r certain where I hit him, and tank |
i- fainting and senseless on tha floor. Whan
n consciousness returned and I beheld the
b dire tcane, tha mangled body, the pool#
b of blood, and (ha awful thought of mur
f der, 1 tank bark again with a feeling of
n pail) aid horror. I then wanted to go ofl
>• and cast wytetf into a bottom I eat gulf and
I. bury iny.elfoul of sight of tbe world
- Wiih these thought. I walked back and
r forth in tha r.vlo • coofuted or de
i ranged manner for some time , then with
a fierce and enar.rwtic perception in mind
and body. I want to the diewsat room, look
• up tha corpse, earn ed it out and imd it
1 down botida a low Uooe fence. I then
K wrapped tha body in t.ka blanket, and laid
P many imall flat stones *rou'd to conceal
v ' it, lit pod a short prays r, aad Japarted U
Mho house Thar# 1 began to ctaar off all
K traces of blood, and to carry tbo boot?.
■ coat, hat, Ac., off ander tbe barn Thr
* machine I alto carriod off and placed be
; hinJ a fence in tha buthee, and covered-
up with brush and stones. I 'hen eni (
' to bed. but in five minutes my paiwwUj
came duwa, and began lhair w ">rk ati
usual. I got up again, and went to the'
8 bam to help feed the stock, when father
r atkad ma what it was ha heard soma lime'
r in the night, as if soma one were gurgling
r or breathing with something in the;
1 , throat
I told bisn that 1 beard it, too, but that
I could not account for it, and it wa* prob
ably the babit of this man to do aomatbing
of the kind, as ba told us tba previous
evening of bia having a bad oold. And
now lb* thought came to ma of my wicked
lie and of having thus deceived my good,
honest father
The scissor grinder u mmii missed. aad
we feuad faint traces of blood about the
floor and on una of the blankets, whan mv
pareat* became (rmtl; excited, and
when (hay found (ha blanket*, quilt and
pillow missing. (bay wara astonished be
yond measure. Tbey looked at ma and
found ma in equal lurpriw. They than
thought that this bad man had ink an the
qullu and made off with ikatn. Father
want in aaarvh of him along the road to
ward Athant, but ha could find no trace
orreetigc. 11# had too much work to do
to tpend any mora lima searching for him
or the thing*. Father went to *e tlia
constable. But all remained quiet, and I
began ho think myself clear of all stupic
That night 1 began digging n grave in
Micb n manner and on such a place that it
would be impossible to find it again 1 car
ried the corpse to it on a wheelbarrow.
Having laid it carefully in and wrapped it in
the blanket, 1 knelt at ike end ofthegrave
and prayed for an hour and a half to God
for the protection and repoee of the soul of
toy friend whom 1 had thus caused to leave
this world unprepared and without a last
look or parting word to his bereaved and
aifllcited wife, and children, and friends.
This being dene I covered up the remains
of my friend in great sorrow, in tbe name
of tbe Father and of the Son and of the!
Holy Ghost, and proceeded to the house in i
t very broken-hearted condition. I then I
: locked every thing up in a trunk and went
up to tha barn again, took up the clothe*
and carried them down the lot and hid'
them. What I did then Ido not to this
day know, for the sun was shining and 1
found myself sitting at the foot of the;
grave if my departed friend.
When the long and tedious day drew,
close I wrote a letter by the influence of]
the same visionary agent, and was as a*tor. \
ished, not a little, when I read it to mysalf.
1 1 then tried to copy it on a separate paper,!
but when I had it finished I dropped to the
floor with aloud ringing and sibilant sound
in my head, where I must have been du
ring the night, fbr in the morning I found
tbe little table upeet against tbe bed and
myself leaning against the door with a
chair over me! When I endeavored to
get up I could hardly bend a finger or
limb, being m rigid and inflexible as death.
Thus I lay helpless until the fiery thought
returned to preform tbe grand imposing..
or majestic work, moral or tragic I Before j
this thought every morbid feeling fled.
My hands became rod as fire, and with '
some pain in straightening my arms and!
back I arose. I fait after I hud killed the
man that it was not the great deed I want
ed to do, for I was greatly disgusted and
terror-strickon and overcome with sorrow
and greif for hav ing caused the untimely
death of my friend I and had lost all
thoughts and desires of ever doing so aw
ful and terrible a thing! After this I pass
ed many nights sitting on tbe grave, for ray
sorrow became so great, (he burden of sins
so heavy, and my wounded spirit so rest
leas, that 1 did not know half the time
what I was about. I often walked off a lit
tle way, and then turned suddenly around
and went back again to tho spot, and want
ed to do something, but never could think
In about two week* the scissor grinder's
> wifo accompanied by a youth, came to our
bouse to inquire for him. 1 hurried to ll.i
barn ami hid qtyseil, for f could not ap
pear before them in such a broken-hearted
condition. The tallowing night when all
was quiet, | took everything in my trunk
which belonged to the lost man, and hid
them at diverse places. The books, Ac.,
I placed in boxes, and buried them also.
A day or two alter this the search began.
The officers, D. P. Dennett, Charles Ernst,
and others, find ing the floor and sofas stain
ed with blood, immcidately suspected me
of having killed the man. J wanted to
"own up," and tell them the whole truth
on the spot, but I had not the courage. I
began to defend myself by telling dreadful
lies, that gave me such a pain within that
1 came near fainting several times. From
this lime I did nothing but lie to the high
est offioer down to the truest friend. Oh I
the dreadful sting my soul received as I

that I would throw the full light into the
