The democrats of this couuty, in
miking nominations for Assembly,
should be governed thus : The dele
gates from the other side of the couu
ty should vote for the caudidate over
here who is most popular with the
people on this side, and the delegates
from this side should act similarly in
voting for a candidate from the other
side—thus the people's choice would
be placed upon the ticket. To follow
this course, it would be necessary that
the voters of each side only instruct
for one candidate aud that for their
own side of the couuty alone —they
would then enter the convention with
out their hands tied, and could easily
ascertain who would likely be the
most popular man from the other
side. We offer this suggestion for
what it is worth, aud for the best in
terests of the party.

Who Shall Be Senator?
MB. EDITOR: —AIIow me through
the medium of your columns to say a
few plain words to the party on the
eve of the delegate elections —to
state the senatorial question clearly,
so that all persons may vote intelli
gently. The occasion demands plain
speaking, and we must not be >o ten
der hearted as to refrain from it for
fear of giving offence to iudivduala.
The welfare of the party is of far
greater importance, than the good
will of any individual; and when the
former is in danger, the latter must
succumb. We must either begiu a
reform withiD the party,or, as last fall's
lesson teaches us, it will be begun
from without. Patriotism as well as
self-interest urges the former.
Wallace or Meek, honesty or cor
ruption, capacity or incapacity, ititcg
rity and high moral worth, or selfish
ness and fawning sycophancy, states
manship or detnagogism, this demo

Even Philadelphia has become so

the notorious ringster and lobbyist,
Bam Josephs ; are we of Centre so de
relict of ours that we cannot in like
manner rebuke his chosen friend and
boon companion, who during four ses
sions contested with him the palm as
to whom of the two should roost the
highest? Eight long weary years
have we patieutly admitted to his
never-failing candidature, trusting
his sense of self respect would finally
come to our relief, hut in vain. His
claims seem eternal. Our debt of
gratitude, it seems, cannot be liquida
ted, and we may as well go iuto bank
ruptcy to relieve ourselves of this
importunate creditor. Jn 1867 and

Democrat in the state, and who is as
I much noted for his ability and integ
rity, as our man is for his bisi.cn

ple. Where can wo point to a similar
example of such a versatile genius'
1/Cgal talent he has none, and legal
education far less, yet he has the
presumption to offer himself to frame

law down to hills of incorporation for

claims he has urged forward by every
means —fair or foul, by forgery and
the basest ingratitude. To insure his
own suectw, regatdles ol the interests
of the party, he has treated in a
shameful manner our best men, those
to whom he owed his life and liberty,
and a far greater debt of gratitude
than the party owes him. But he hav
ing proved so ungrateful what right
under heaven lias he for bimsclf, or
any other man for him, to claim that
the party owes him aught on the score
of gratitude? He lias disorganized
our party, and attempted to control
its nominations, lit order to aeeotn
plish his nefarious designs he lias
repeatedly promised, in fact mortgag
ed offices to his friends for \ ears before
vacancies could occur, and he is to

detriment of other equally good, it
not better rneu. He uses his official
influence as editor of the party organ,
to secure his own individual advance

results may come ujkui the party. I*
this the course for an impartial editor
to pursue? Is it right, is it just, that
he should dispose of county offices
without consulting the wishes of the
party, more tliau any otlur member
of it? Such is Mr. Meek s record;
but what of his opponent, Mr Wal
lace? Has he no claims ujxur the
people of the state and of the district v
He was the tuau who organised and
kept n haruiouv car fotces iu mauy u
critical period. Hesecured the election
of the only state officer whom we have
had for the last 12 years. He incurred
obloquy unjustly ou our behalf aud
has emerged from the hue aud cry of
our oppouauU, pure and unspotted,
respected even by his detainers. Sh w
me a Democrat who is an t tie my to
Mr. Wallace, and 1 will show you one
whom he has frustrated iu some dis
honest undertaking. There lies the
secret of our having a candidate fur
Senator in our couuty wheu the peo
ple are almost unanimous in favor of
the only fit man who presents himself
for the position.
But let us examine these two men
with especial reference to their fitness.
Mr. Meek has served four terms in
the lower house and has made one
speech which he doubtless (?) wrote,
at least he has the credit of having
done so; Mr. Wallace has been four
terms in the Senate, is acknowledged
one of its ablest debaters, and has
made many able aud.eloquent speech
es. Mr. Meek has been four years in
Harrisburg, aud during that period
was noted as au unswerving friend
aud member of the King; Mr. Wal
lace was 12 years iu the same place,
yet not a breath of suspicion has been
cast upon his name. Mr. Meek had
little infiueuce among the honest
members of the House ; Mr. Wallace
presided one year over the delibera
tions of the Senate, and has always
been regarded by both parties as one
of its leaders aud most distiugubhed
members. Sir. Meek's voice was
heeded by the King, but dispised by
all whose regard for their oath was
greater than their self love ; Mr. Wal
lace was feared by the King, and
applauded by the upright. Mr. Meek
went to Harrisburg poor aud came
back rich in four years ; on a salary of
•1000 a year. Mr. Wallace, in 12
years, has failed to be so econonical,
and to-day is worth less than he would
have been had he remained at home
aud attended to his personal affairs.
But he has chosen to sacrifice bis own
pecuniarv interest to beuefit the
people; Sir. Meek has determined to
sacrifice the people to benefit himself.
Which was the more honorable, which
was the more praiseworthy course?
Again, Mr. Meek is devoid of legal
talents and legal lore; Mr. Wallace
is one of the first lawyers in the state.
The duty of the legislator requires
that he should have some legal acu
men, that he should be able to frame a
law properly and to comprehend if-full
force and meaning after it is enacted.
Especially is this true in regard to a
Senator. The lower house seldom
contains men who can fulfill this re
, quirement, and hence it is the more
necessary that such men should be
fouud in the Senate In this report
Mr. Meek has been deficient. How
else can we account for the disastrous
effect which his constituents have felt
from several of his principle meas
ures? It was either blind ignorance
or willful malevolence, and on either
ground he is unfit for the position.
3d, Mr. Meek is a secret enemy of
the New Constitution. Mr. Wallace
one of its avowed friends. True, Mr.
Meek did not openly oppose that in
strument, but he put out a "feeler,''
and after be discovered that he could
not do this with impunity and that in
strument would in all probability
prove popular, his innate spirit of
demagoguimn prompted him to take a
neutral ground so as not to compro
mise his claims on the party for that
well known debt of gratitude. Now
the next legislature must pass many
laws rendered rcqusite to carry out
this instrument, which the last failed
to pass on this very account. We
want men who will be in hearty ac
cord with the spirit as well as the let
ter of that instrument, whose pasi
record is unimpeachable, who do not
require to take several oaths before
they can live up to the plain Scriptu
ral injunction, "Thou shalt not steal "
The instrument has already cleared
out the lobby ; now let the people do
their duty and clear out the lobbyists.
4th, We owe something to the other
candidates in tho district. Clinton has in
structed for our candidate for Judge,
Clearfield will, in all probability, do like
wise. Now shall we be so ingonerous as
to press our claims fur all the district nom
inations, especially when we have some
candidates notoriously interior to those
presented by our sister counties? SIIHII
we put ourselves in such an cmbitrnuing
position, and, perhaps, by asking ail, lose
all? Let us have some self-respect, and
not, like our brazen-faced anil immodest,
candidate ask everything both present ami
future. These counties have instructed for
our best men, let us go and do likewise.
No one, not even Mr. Meek himself pre
tends to compare the qualifications of the
two men. Ho only asks it because— he
wants and failed to get it last fall after
disgracing us by protracting the struggle
for the nomination.
Such are a few of the questions present
ed. We defy any man to compare the in
tegrity, the abilities and the fitnes of these
men, and say that Mr. Meek equals Ins
competitor in any of these respects. Such
being the case, we owe it to the state, we
owe it to the district, we ewe it to the pur

' I Sunday night 200 live* were lot and
5-7.(00,000 of propelty was destroyed by
the bursting of a water-spout over the city.
Not until to-day did the public realize
, what an awful destruction of life and prop
erty had occurred.
There were *omo very affecting inci
dents. Alderman Bolster of the Seventh
Ward of Allegheny, who was submerged
with his family— hi* wife being on a sick
bed—with u superhuman effort gathered,up
his wife ami five children and started to
run out of his house that was being
swept away. His little boy Charley, who
was perched on hi* shoulder, hearing the
cry of a little babe who dwell in the next
hou*c, ami to which he was greatly at
tached. leaped from his father's shoulder,
und this morning was found with his limb*
clasping his heby lover's crib, in which it
was dead and smiling. The tear* of the
ten thousand women who looked at this
pretty incident was onn of tho sweetest
tributes to heroism that wns ever witness
ed. To-night they lay side by side nt
Sampson A Voigt'a undertakers, the pret
tied corpses of all the many w he have lost
their lives, and over whose little cofllns
thousands of tho first ladies of tho two
cities came and shed their tears like the
Then there is another incident at Wood's
Run that almost baffle* description and
stagger* belief. Mr. John Brady, hi*
wife and four children, lived in a little
shanty nt the foot of n bluff that was sheer
KW feet high. Over this blufl ran a small
gas pipe to supply a house above. When
the flood came and struck thqir house,
Mrs. Brady seized tho babe nt her breast,
leaped out of the back window, and seiz
ing the gaspipe, sailor like, drugged herself
her infant to the top of the hill above.
Her husband and tho oilier three child-en
were drowned, and carried down to the
confluence of Wood's llun.'nml tho Ohio
River. On O'Hara-st,, Rudolph Artz, his
wife and six children, resided While
Mr. Artz was trying to pacify his family
about the storm, the Hood broke, und he
was forced to see his family dug out of the
debti to-day and laid seven of tlis us, iu n
long row In the undertaker's establish
ment. Ifiio man, who was picking up hit
of broken hardware, said h had lost noth
ing except his In use and wifo and two
children, and was trying to | ick up things
to begin housekeeping with. J|e was a
Stalwart mat., but so demented with his
losses that hmidleds of ladies who heard
him fell into bystorica! Weeping,
tin (en tie st. a party who appeared
with n skill discovered a man hanging on
the roof of a bouse. The w nter on the street]
at that time was soma K> feet high. They 1

the entire family were saved.
Ai counts ot the horrible tiood which has
delugi d nearly all the subutban sections

It. is now thought that the loss of life
will reach fully 200 persons, and that the

City of I'ittsburg. ly ing as it Jot* in the
CCl.ur.of this circle, i -CU|M-J further injury
appeals almost miraculous. A prevailing
theory is that the disaster was caused by
some kind of water spout. A gentleman
who watched the storm from a point a fuw
mile* down the river, where there was lit
tle rain, say * thai by the fitful dashes of
lightning he could si c a huge, inky black,
funncl-thapcd cloud which overhung the
city, the t.arrow ct.ds bt-.ng lowest, while
the daik | art# gave vti.l to almost con
tinuous flashes of lightning.
When the rain began failing little ap
prehension • entertained, but those who
lived ntar tU® head c>f the Valley state
thai suddenly it termed as if the heavens
wile opened, and the water came down as
if discharged from immense pitet. The
volume w*t so great that the valley was
filled with a raging torrent. The frame
dwellings, stables, and slaughter bouses
gave way like pijie stems, and the debris
from the wrecks wa swept down along the
I.tie of the plailk-r- ad, the weight being
augmented every moment. In the dis
tricl lying west ot Chestnut-st , and north
of a parallel with North-arc., the waters
rose to a bight of fully 'At feel. In s me
places occupant* ot dwellings were unable
to escape In time to save their lives. In
many places the for. o of the water rent
structures into splinters.

TH K SCHK M K uK%.\ t.V ATIoN
j The Rev. Dr. Win Ortmslon preached
in the Collegiate Dutch Reformed)
Church nt Fifth-are. and Forty eighlb
►t , upon lite incident of the hft.ng up of
(he brazen serpent in Ihe wilJerneas, at
dslailed in the twenty-first chapter of
Number*, taking *< a Uxt these word* of
the eighth *tre : '"And tl shall come to
|iu>, thai i very one that i- bitten when he
lookclh up it shall live. 1 '
Tin- strtling|and singular incident, said
the preacher, vat used by Jcu* Christ to
illustrate the spiritual condition of the
race. A* a type of the scheme of salvation
it may be considered, first with reference
to iu necessity, its simplicity, and lU ap
plication. Take the necessity of it. The
people are dying from the deadly rirui,
which is in all vqinos and ail heart*. All
are lost unless redeemed with a price.
No one i* exempt. Multitudes have per
ished already, and many are dying even
on this charming Sabbath morning The
disease of sin with which all souls are
stricken, is not a mere surface disease It
u a constitutional malady, a radical de
fect in the character. Sin is in the heart
before it it in the hand, lis manifestations
are various. It sometime comes out in
pride, passion, and avarice, 11 is constant
ly cropping eut in some form, for its es
sence is in us, estrangement from (sod, re
bellion against God't servants. His ways,
His Word, and His method of saving men
God s love is sovereign, unmerited, and
wondrous. When the people of larval
were dying from the bites of serpents,
they cried out. That was all which they
could do. Moses prayed to God for mer
cy. That was grand sublime ; but all that
he could do was to pray, pnd the virus
was active still. God took Hit own way
of healing, n way which made every suf
ferer his own physician in some sense.
And when there wat no help for the lost
race, sunk in sin, there was no hope, and
no hope could prevail until God looked,
pitied, and gave his only begotten Son.
it was a truly Divine gift, a grand sacri
fice for human tin, the redemption
Ihreugli Jesus Christ, which recreates and
renews us to the glory of God. The Lord
Jesus Christ is lifted up on the cross to
make atonement for our sint. He is also
raised to the right hand of God. as
a l'rinco ami Savior, to bestow imffrable
blessings on the reflcemosl. There is no
Gospel where Christ is not lifted up.
There may be elequence, pungency, sci
ence. and learning in a sermon, but un
less Christ is in inhere •* no Gospel there.
But it is nut preaching that saves men.
It was not the proclamation through tin
encampment that saved the children oi
lreal, but their looking to the serpent
raised upon the pole Multitudes go forth
to-day telling the story of death, burial,
and resurrection of Christ upon the cross.
Redumption is a grand act of manumission
but you must accept it to be made fn e
It is the wafer of life, but you must drink
it or die of thirst It is the bread of life,
and you must eat it or go a hungered. It
is the life-boat to save (he drowning, but
men must gel into it or be cast away. It
is the city of refuge, but men must bide
themselves in it, it they would escape de
The conditions are very simplo It wa*
only n look for the poisoned people of 1-
rcal. It wsi n mere act ot acceptance now
mi act adapted for all. If the condition
had required men to jet up and walk
so Hi o might not have been able to
do it. No painful ponaneo or long pil
grimage to a far shrine is required, or
many would not have had the time or
means. It does not require a lofty mind,
or great powers of logical analysis. It is
in the grasp ot thy illiterate anil poor; it
is free to all. In the Cinffch of God all
men are on a'level. In our sins wo are
all on a level before God, because all are
guilty, and all are condemned. In their
teaching, also, all men are on a level. A*
saints and Matters, we stand alike before
God. The discourse showed qlsoat length
that bottling in salvation is perfectly free,
and is indispensable Hiid confers health,
happiness, hope of heaven now and un
bounded bliss hereafter. In conclusion
the unconverted were appealed to accept
the free salvation, and the converted were
urged to ust every effort to bring others,to
the happiness which they bad found.
