The heads of the Schuylkill county
radicals evidently are level—at all
events they show ability to lean slron
ly on both sides at the same time.
At a recent mass meeting ihise con*
sislaut fellows passed the following
resolution, after which, we have no
doubt, every mother's son of them
went to his little bed, smitiug his
breast and thanking God that he was
not like other men. a* did the phariaee
of old: "We unequivocally eoudoruu
"the action of those members of l\ n*
"gress who voted themselves addition
"al pay for services performed, as well
"as those members who voted agaiust
"the measure, but who have not re
" fitted to accept it."
All right, insofar as it leans in that
direction, but the same saintly crilfert
also in the strongest terms eudorsed
Grant and Hartranft, both having
accepted the salary iucr:ase, and
Grant making the measure a la why
his signature and doubling his owu
pay. Now here is the principle of
good Lord and good Devil exempli
fied, and the Centre county radicals,
iu their next county convention, can
dodge around this crocked corner in
the same style as their brethereu iu
Schuylkill dodge it. These radicals
have the wonderful faculty of defining
their poaitiou upon the salaiy grab as
clear as mud. By all means let them
bs voted a putty medal.
Grant's office holders and the eon- j
gressional salary grabbers are now at j
work cooking up the third term for
their chief. The information has gone
out that the preliminaries wre ar
ranged at Long Branch, several days
ago, where Grant and all the other
horse racers and racers after the funds
in the treasury and those who are in
wild chase to fatten at the public crib
now congregate. The monietl men of
the country, of course, are in the rnov
mcnt, a third term for Grant means
more fodder for their racks, and the
working classes to continue to be their
hay-makers on bread and water. Iu
these "monied men" are meant the
National Banks, the railroad corpora
tions, and the large, speculating capi
talists. These arc for giving Grant a
third term, because under him their
speculations and money making ope
rations will not be interfered with.
All Grant office holders in the coun
try —not excepting those in Centre
county —will cave in to thit move
ment. The official patronage will be
used to give it life and manipulate
conventions, and fixing delegates.
The inauguration ball has left a lit
tle sore behind. It will be remem
bered that the late 4th of March was
down somewhere near the ice-cream
temperatnre and withal very inclem
ent, and the affair didn't pay, leaving
in debt. Farties who
have claims threaten to sue. The dis
trict legislature voted $15,000 to help
the committee out, but still there are
lots of big and little "Williams" unsa
Joseph 8. Waream, esq., and J. B.
Selbeimer, both of Lewistowu, are
candidates for the democratic nomica
lion for state senator.
Hon. P. Gray Meek, of the licllefonte
Watchman) it being urged for the position
of Chairman of the Democratic State Com
mittee. The Gact is, he is spoken of for
nearly every office that is lying around
loose.—Lew blown True Democrat.
Now we want the Lewistown man
and some other democratic editors
quit shaming our Gray, or the Repor
ter will be after them. If he were not
continually having somebody talking
abcul him for some place, he'd soon
get into forgottenness, and then what
would become of the party, eh ? We
go for Gray always.
Wm. C. Duncan, of Union couuty
• formerly of Millheim—was a radi
cal candidate for the nomination of
state senator ; the primary elections,
upon the Crawford county system,
came off in Union county the other
week and Cook was left behind, his
competitor, A. J. Ilerr, coming out
cat-bird in the race. Ilerr was the
choice of Simon Camerou and Cook
Duncan didn't belong to that wing,
and Simon was up in Union shortly
before the primaries, saw some of the
Winnebagoes in different parts of the
county, and used the greenback argu
ment with others, and thus spoiled the
cooking of Cook Duncan's noodle
In Itut week's Lewisburg Chroni
cle Mi. Duncan appeara in a two col
umn letter, telling how the thing was
done. He says he can prove some
bad things upon his radical hretheren;
he says they cheated and circulated
*ll kinds of lies and slanders against
him, and, upon the whole, the canvass
was carried on in a foul and disgrace-
Ail manner against him. and to the
discredit of the radical party.
Indeed we are sorry our whilom
neighbor Cook received such shabby
treatment at the hands of bis party.
But what he is telling is nothing nw
or unexpected to us—it is the way the
rads do things, and Mr. Duncan ouly
admits now what he was silent to here
tofore. The country has been dis
graced by radicalism, and all the suc
cesses of that party are mainly the re
sult of cheating, bribery, villification
and slander. How infamous was their
treatment of Horace Greeley, when he
could no longer keep his nostrils open
to the nnstiuos of radicalism. A par
ty that is owned by Cameron must ne
cessarily be devoid of anything that
i pure, hottest and upright.
The New York Graphic, the daily
illustrated paper and one of the moat
astounding enterprises in the newspa
per line, has shown its spirit of enter
prise in a now direction, and one that
is calculated to be beneficial to science
and settle an important question as tot
currents in the upper regions of the
atmosphere. For this purpose the
Graphic publishing company have
agreed to furnish the celebrated aero
uaut, John W i-e, with s|t),lHH) with
which to construct a monster balloon
and start on an aerial voyage to Ku
ropo in August. The Graphic is one
of the highest toned journals we kuow
of, admitting nothing iu its literature
or illustration! that is low and vulgar
and is one of the most acceptable
journals that visits the Reporter of*
tiee, and we trust its balloon enterprise
will prove as successful as the estab
lishment of a pure toned daily illus
trated journal has proven. The re
ports of Mr. Wise's voyage, with ap
propriate illustrations, will he given
in the Graphic, from time to time.
Prof. Johu Wise, iu A letter to the
Graphic, takes the ground that bal
loons always float east. He savs :
Kirt, we know thnt the earth turn* iq>on
iu axis from west to oast, and that it uiovos
in iu orbit in the same direction, aud that
iu equatorial belt is hot, and that its polar
areas are cold, and that the earth's revol
ving axis, although always parallel to it-
self, ha an inclination of twenty-three de
gree* to the plain of its oibit, and we know
that the earth is one-half in shadow and
one-half in light all the time, and that the
line of shadow moves from oast to west.
This i* the ground-work of the trade-wind
currents. In the reduction of these ele-
ments tc a mathematical precision, wo find
precisely the conditions and tacts that we
find by actual experience iu the wind cur
renU as observed by scientific aeronaut*,
and by noted uieterologisU, foremost
among them, Henry, Espy, Kedfield and
Maury. Any person who has watched the
upper clouds for a season in our temperate
t-ine becomes satisfied of the main fact in
the matter before us, i. e., that they sail
from west to cast iu their general course;
ami any one who will take the trouble te |
note the weather predictions, will find that
the condition of the weather in the Missis
sippi Valley of to-day will be the condition
of the weather with us to-morrow, and the
weather of the most eastern portion of our
country the next day. •••••••
I may re|eat again the experience of 446
aerial voyages, in which my balloon trav
eled eastward 414 times, and to uie an
ounce of fact is worth mora than a pound
of theory, as related to one and the same
j sufiject. There are a great many foolish
I things written on this matter. Scientific
blunders, and weak-minded pretensions of
knowledge concerning it, abound more
than sound logical reasoning and experi
mental facts. 1 trust that the intelligent
student will find enough in what I have
-tated of the facU to lead him to a fair in
vestigation of iU legitimate result*. When
tho voyage i* once made the thing will be
plain enough, and the subject will be han
dled in a commercial way, as were the
other "wild and visionary schemes" of
Columbus, Stephenson. Fulton aud Field.
According to the report of a com
mittee raised by the Legislature of
I Vermont, to investigate the atlkira ol
the Insane Asylum of that State,
matters arc decidedly in a bad condi
tion. The Committee declare that
the Asylum, which is controlled by a
private corporation, was greatly over
crowded, four hundred aud eighty-five
patients being packed in a space in*
tended to accommodate .but three
hundred at the most. Scventv-five of
these unfortunates were found thrust
away in subterranean dungeons, dark,
damp, foul and pervaded by unen
durable stenches. Some were confin
ed ia apartments nine feet by four in
size, with air and ventilation only
through augur holes bored in the
doors. At tne same time the most
inhuman punishments were inflicted
upon the patients. Among them was
the punishment of the bath, in which
the patient, securely bound, is placed
in a bathing tub, and a continuous
stream of cold water allowed to fall
upon his head. This torture was one
of the most excruciating known in the
dark ages, resulting usually in either
insanity or death. It seems almost
incredible that such acts should have
been perpetrated in a Stale institu
tion in a State of the American Union
and upon men and women suffering
under the most terrible provideutial
infliction. But Buch is the report of
a committee chosen by the Legisla
ture, after a full invetigat;sp of the
whole subject. The same body aleo
declares that some men have been
locked up in the cells of the asylum
and subjected to all the pains and
penalties of their situation through
bribery. They were not insane. But
it was to the interest of they
should be considered so, aud hence
their incarceration. This report,
from its startling official revelations
and the source from which it proceeds
should receive more than usual atten
tion in all parts of the country.
Cruelty to the insane is a crime
which should be ranked high in the
calendar of moral monstrosity, and
those practicing it punished in a prop
er manner. If an example is made of
the officers of the Vermont &ate in
sane Asylum after a fair hearing of
the case, that fact will have great
weight in bringing about a better state
of affairs in nil the insane asylums of
the country, whether State or pri
The Constitutional Convention has
done well in allowing parties to dis-

pleadings —modes that feave Jopg
been in use. We shall be curious to
see bow many cases there will be, in
which parties prefer to submit a real
dispute about facts to a Judge with
out a jury.

There cau bo no question that this

of Grant's sitting up the Kellogg |
government, which nobody pretends
received a majority ot the votes of the t
jieople of Louisiauna. The lilol suit t
agarnsl the Picayune grew out of its I
faithful exposure of the shameless i
frauds of the Lynch Returning Hoard; i
frauds which were made ih —tide only J 1
by Grant's support of the iufaiuous i
decision of his tool and creature lbi- i
rell. When the trial of the libel suit i
eatuo ou before a Male judge who
owed his seat on the bench to this i
same scandalous usurpation, the da- i
jeuce offered the truth in evidence, i
Hut this judicial miscreant refused to
admit it, although the law of the
State jiermits it to le given to the
jurv. The Picayune, us was its right
ami its duty, exjnjsed the unfairness of
the trial and the chicanery of the
prosecuting lawyers. Galled to ac
count by oue of tiiem, who added gross
iusalts to llagrant injury, the editor,
not choosing to expose himself to
further libel suits iu which he could
expect uo justice, resorted to a mode
of radices which has long been sane
tioued by the practice and the social
opinion of the Southwest. Ibe pro
priety of duelling is not the question
here at all. In a community where!
gentlemen recognize their amendabil-1
fty to that code, aud ofteu appeal to it |
oil slight provocations, it is not indi-
I vidual duellist but the community j
that must lie held answerable for
whatever wroug there is in the prac
tice. Both parlies to the late affair
alike accepted this "law of honor."
Iu such a state of society, the indi
vidual must bo judged by the suffi
ciency of his provocation. And iu
this iiarticular case no impartial mird
can doubt that Mr. Rhett was fully
justified in sending the challenge, if
any provocation cau ever justify a
duel. 110 might have fallen as his
i opponent fell; his facing that risk was
the indispensable coudilou of his seek
ing that method of redress. Fortune
happened, in this instance, to be on I
| the side of justice; but it was as like- j
ily to be the other way. Mr.
! Rhett incurred no more guilt lhau if
• the shot of his antagonist had proved
r fatal, instead of his own. No amouut

-'General Grant, who was the prime
•! instigator aud has been the steady,
• j unscrupulous abettor of the monstrous
f usurpation of which this is one of the
many evil fruits.
The writer of an arllole iu the
j" Cornhil! Magaiine upon the negro
race, under the designation of "The
! Sons of 11am," gives some reasons for
t thinking that that race is not dcriv
-1 e>l from at least not through
| Canaan, as the popular theory goes.
\ His reasoning on thnt point is the
• following:
"To justify the position of those
1 who yet believe iu the degrading in*
> fiuencc of the curse of Noah upou the
1 Africans —aud their name is legion—
' it is necessary to prove that they are
1 the descendants of Canaan, at whom
T ; alone the curse was launched, and
- {that slavery has been spcoially asso
| i ciated with them. But there is
' abundant evidence, sacred aud pro
-1 fane, to show that, of alt the sous of
J Ham, Canaan was the only one who
' never entered Africa. His descend
® ants occupied, without exception,
' Asiatic localities. We told in
• Gen. x, 19: "The border of the
2 Canaanites was from Bidon, as thou
r goeth unto Sodom and Gomorra, and
' Adman, and Zeboim, even unto
5 Lasha." Whereby Palensline is un
' misUkably indicated. And Joseph us
1 also says : 'Canaan, the fourth sou of
[ Ham, inhabited the country now call
' ed Judea, and called it from his own
name.' From which it is evident that
" the Africans are not the descendants
s of Canaan, and that there is no foun
• datioa, therefore, for the assertion
1 that they are of some myaUrioua spir
-1 itual uecessity doomed to be the 'ser
' j vants of servants,' inasmuch as Noah's
1 malediction, which is gravely suppos

Steam towage is about to be intro
duced on the canals of New York on
cablo principle. Tho motive baais of
the system is the same ns that of run
ning a train of cars, except that the
wheels of the cars run over a station
ary rail, while the canal cable, cor
responding to the rail, runs over the
steamer's wheel. Hut a train of ca
nal boats is dragged along on the
same principle as a train of cars ; and,
as the cable lies at the bottom of the
canal and is lifted over'thc steamer's
wheel only as it is used, it in nowise

canal by other boats. The Buffalo
Advertiser estimates (hat six boats
can be taken from Buffalo to Troy by
ibis system at cost of 8240, while the
cost of towing the same number by
mules is s73">. This system of steam
towinf by cable is in successful opera
tion iu several jvproppaq countries,
very largely in Belgium, and on the
river Seine in France, for towing
boats between Havre and Paris. If
successful in New York, it will no ,
doubt be introduced upon all the

is too slow, too expensive. If canals

11 Fifteen Hundred Feet—The F ear
Jul Deternt —Condition of the Jlodv
Mail reports give tome interesting
J details of the fatal accideut to the
i icrouaut LajMountaiii, at Inuia, Mich.,
i last Friday. His ballon was what ii
1 ) known as a hot air one, and not gas
1] The canvas had somew hat of a worn
appearance, as if the worse for being
' ; filled with heated air too often. Al
l the summit, whe r e the canvas was
' j sewn together, a block of ten ot
1 twelve inches in diameter was fasten'
ed, and through a hole in this six guy
[ 1 ropes were secured, hanging dowu ov
er the sides of the balloon, being at
' the bottom some seventeen feet apart,
and these wore tied to the basket by
~ the Professor himself. There were no
ropes running around the balloon
(horizontally to keep the guy rojes
1 from slipping, or to prevent the whole
! thing from sliding out between the
ropes with a gust of Vind. At 3:35
p. m. the professor stepped into the
baskest, and the balloon took a shoot
up almost perpendicularly, with the
i professor swinging his iiat to the
' crowd, all apparently enjoying the
i sight. In a few moments more, how
ever, the mouth of the baloon was
observed to wave about two or three
times, then to pass between the ropes,
careening over on the side ; when the
ropes broke out from their fastening
at the top. aud the fall commenced.
La Mountain was noticed to be ap
parently making some effort to get
. the basket above him, and if possible
to break the fall, but after the first
struggle lie fell so rapidly that noth
ing could be distinguished but the
falling body, bis hat coming after him
about one hundred feet or more be
hind, the old canvas, nearly collapsed,
falling down gradually. The poily
struck the grouud half* a dozen feet
from the northwest corner of the jail
building. It struck with such a ter
rible thud that it jarred the grouud
for fifty rods around, and made an in
dention in the solid ground eight in
ches in depth. There was scarcely a
bone lu Iho whole body not brokcu
to fragmen/s. It was as limp as a rag.
There were very few fractures of the
skin, except the right foot, the bones
of the right leg being driven through
the bottom of the foot.
The bodv was laid on a couch, a
circle was formed, and a procession of
all who wished to view the remains
passed around. The professor is a
brother of the celebrated tcronaut who
died two or three years ago. This
one's name was Edward La Moun

lived ut Brooklyn, Michigan. He

striking the bone heavily upon the table,
out foil thousands of little glittering
globules of mercury bright metallic mer

Qxytlimm : Your Director* take
pleasure in tubtniUing, for your informa

That since the last annual meeting, by
• •rder of your Board of Directors, a third
1 letting was had of the graduation, mason •
ry and bridging of 4'J.l<>4 miles uiurojol
your railroad line, and placed under con
tract—that is, from Miffiinburg to Forks
of l'cnns Creek, being sections No. I'd U
Vs. making '24.04 miles, and from Ponn'a
Kailrrad near Tyrone, being sections No.
TO to M>, both inclusive, a distance of 18.1*5
miles. On this western division, contrac
tor* have done work up till M*y I, 1873,
to the amount of $191,174 It*, on which
there hat been paid 104,400, the balance
being per centagc retained a* security for
the proper completion of the work. There
was also paid on this end of the work, to

it ready for tbe locomotive and cars, s'2v
•iOO, which two sums show the entire cost
•f these 18.154 tniles to be $549,700.
On this Division,*part of the work is
heavy, and in place* material for filling
i and embankments is difficult to get; the
, work, nowcvojT, has been press, u as
, ly as adverse weather would alio*.—
Much expense has been caused, and also
delay, by the necessity of making com
mon roads anew, considerable portion* of
{this section of country being such as to
make the location of tho railroad neceisa
)y interfere with public roads heretofore
used for travels and especially is such l|ic
case in Logan Buns V alley, which is gen
erally vdry narrow and in many placet
bordered by limestone bluffs. The stone
work of the bridgo over the Juniata river
i< ii ii is tied, and tho superstructure thereon
progressing satisfactotily. This Division
will be progressed to final completion
ready for traffic as fast as possible.
On the Division from Mniifflburg to the
pork#, ur Beaycr pam tunnel, tho con
tractors have done work to the amount ol
$113,14909, on which they have paid $99, -|
4(10, the amount of work done less the per
centage retained. Tho Kngincor estimates
the graduation, masonry and bridging of
this portion of the road at $300,200, and
the ballasting, lies, rails, sidings and all
other expense* at $348,1**) making the to
tal cost of these 04 miles in running or
der, JdbA.OO.
From Minifllhurg to Laurelton, sections
I*2 to 20, distanco of about 0 miles, the
graduation, masory and bridging are
about finished and ready for tbe ballast,
ties and rails, which by the estimate, may '
cost atiout $111,4*4 per mil*. This being
done, would bring our road through a fine 1
section of country, to near lumber regions '
and a short distance from iron ore beds. '
Considerable lumber at this point is wait
ing transportation. This piece of road J
put in running order would add to lh c '
truffie, giving u* a continued completed '
lino ol 20 miles, connecting with the P. & v
K. Railroad, which could be operated by '
the samo motive pewor and hands, and '
would bo of great advantage to the public 1
and to the interest of the stockholder* ; 1
therefore, tho immediate laying of the 1
track on titp u additional miles i* re'com- *
mended. Tho balanoe of the work on this '
Division, lliat is, from Laurelton, acctions
No'2l to 35, considerable progress ha* 1
been made, although tho great depth of u
snow throughout that region during the c
past winter retarded the work. At Pad- n

The number of passengers carried over
this road during the year ending Dec 31,
1872, was 29,029.
, j This road ill open up a most important
traffic. Thp yalley* through which it
11 rut s are very fertile and thickly popula
ted. Valuable timber will be made nc
. 'ccssible to market, also valuable iron ore
, abounds which is attracting the attention
|-of iron master* in different section* of the
country, and furnace* which wero coin-
I polled to blow out for want of sufficient
charcoal convenient, and in
of cspotisive hauling, will be changed, so
either anthracite or bitumicus coal lean be
used and the furnace* again put in blast
as soon a* the road 1* completed aud ready
for transportation of freight.
The lion. J. Kdgar Thompson, Prosi-j
dent, in his annual report to the stoU.
holders of the j'cnn'u flit. Co., in speak
ing of.'our road has wefl'said : "The ore*
of this region are by this branch made
equally accessible to both anthracite and
bituminous coal of the best quality for
smelting ; and in view of these advantages
it open* una most attractive locality fori
the manufacture of Iron, tho demand for !
which in the homo market must annualU
increase with the increasing cost of its pro
duetion in Great Britain, from whence
tho larger portion of the iron consumed in
this and other countries is at present pro
duced. The of these ores,
I show that many uf theiu aro well adapted
to the manufuoture of Bessemer stool."
From the exhibit of the busines done on
tho small section of your road already in
operation it is evident when the lino is '
completed it will be crowded with busi
ness, besides developing a section of coun
try to the great advantage of the public,
will prove a sourcp pf pjoflt tp the stock
