DANIEL O BARK, of Allegheny.
John Sherman ia traveling around
now to get up a Sherman boom for the
presidency. With John in the presi
dential chair, and brother Wtn. T. at
the head of the army, and the nephew
of his uncle, IV>n, as See'y of War or of
the Treasury, snrely there ought to be
one happy frenndschaft in the land.
One positive step in advance has been
taken on the Darien canal project, M.
de l.ossepss' agent Iras made a deposit
of $150,000 in linden to the credit of
the Columbian government as a forfeit
or guarantee of sincereity in accepting
the conceion.
The Camerons are mad once more at
the fraudulent President and charge him
with bad (kith about the secretaryship
of war. A recent telegram from Wash
ington says : Mr. Hayes is charged with
another breach of faith hv the stalwarts.
It has become a common story that be
has promised an office to some applicant
after he has determined that another
shall till the vacancy. The charge is re
peated now with reference to the Secre
taryship of War, and the offended per
sons are Don Camero and his friend
S. M. Quay, formerly Secretary of State
of Pennsylvania. The story goes that
Mr. Cameron called on the President
and urged that the office be given to a
Pennsvlvanian, that great State having
no representative in the Cabinet. Mr.
Haves rather objected on the ground
that the Republicans of that common
wealth are constantly engaged in in
ternecine feuds, but he said if they could
unite on a person he would gladly give
the name careful consideration. Al
ready, however, he had offered the
place to ex-Senator Ramsey, of Minne
sota, and Mr. Cameron asked him if he
had not. The President evaded the
question, however, saying he had asked
the gentleman if he would accept the
office if tendered, tfl him, but that he
had not yet tendered it to anybody.
Mr. Cameron thereupon named Mr.
Quay, and then followed the announce
ment of the acceptance of the nomina
tion by* Mr. Ramsey and the rage of the
clan Cameron.
That familiar old fraud, the Legisla
tive Record, still continues to appear at
this office, although the legislature ad
journed weeks ago. It is a duced sight
slower yet than tbe body whose pro
ceedings it carries, and the Lord knows
it was slow enough to sicken the whole
state. Vive la Bergner.
The London Standard's correspond
ent at Magnibonium, under date of June
30, mentions a skirmish with the Znlua
on June 26. Messengers from Cetewayo
asked the British not to burn six kraals
which they specified. The request was
refused. Buller's horse then advanced,
when the Zulus fired the kraals them
selves. A large Zulu force appeared,
but on the guns opening tire they fled.
Boiler pursued and cut down twelve of
the enemy.
A large number of suits hare been
brought against this (Allegheny) coun
ty within the past week for losses in
curred by individuals during the July
riots of 1577. These suits have been de
layed til! this time in order to allow the
Supreme Court to pass upon the ques
tion of tbe liability of the State or the
county. It having been settled by that
tribunal that the county is liable, the
lawyers have been rushing in suits by
the'hundreds, in order to be within Die
reach of the Act of Assembly, which
savs that suit must be brought within
two years after the loss was incurred.
The * most prominent lawyers say
that this two year limitation is not con
stitutional. The amount of the suits
brought thus far is about 1230,000. The
total ioa? for which the county is liable
is now placed at over $2,700,000, which
will seriously embarrass the county to
The five border States of Maryland.
West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee

The state of affairs in Memphis is de*
plorable. It is reported deserted by
the better class of her citizens. Her
residences are unoccupied, and but few
business houses remain open. Her peo
ple are refugees from home, and death
larks in every breeze which Bweepe
through her streets and alleys. Soon
the cry of distress will be heard and
then follows the wail of the bereaved,
and yet amid all the gloom there are re
maining in this doomed city some who
gloat over the misery of tbe present.
The report says there are nearly two
hundred whites, backed by 10,000 color
ed meD, who daily stand around, who
never try to do anything, who would
nqt leave Memphis if they could. These
barnacles are but awaiting the time
when dire necessity will compel the
Howard Association and Citizen's Re
lief Committee to begin operations.
Their recollection of 1878 still lingers
with them, and they are all prepared
and ready to partake of a nation's chari*

their hearts. In the near future they
see free rations and plenty of them.

[in his memory the corruption that was
uncovered in last winter's session of our
legislature by C. P. Wolf, in connection
with the Pittsburgri'it claims bill. The
investigation that followed showed that
a number of member* were guilty of
corruption, in order to fasten 3 millions
upon the taxpayers of the state.
lASt week the republican state con
tention met at llarrisburg to nominate
a candidate for stAte treasurer. All the
roosters of the party, Quay, Kemhle
Co., whose hands are besmeared with
the riot corruption affair, and who at
tempted to prevent Mr. Wolf from ex
posing the iniquity of the job. were
present as managers of the conven
Chas. S, Wolf, of Vnion, was also a
delegate to the convention, snd offered
the following just and proper resolu
tion :
Kc.Wretf. That in view of the develop
men?a of corrupt practices in connection
with the "riot bill" in the last House,
we emphatically reathrm that f-vrt ot
the platform adopted by the Republican
State Convention at Lancaster in 1575,
and which waa roadoptrd by the Repub
lican State Convention at llarrisburg in
1176, which demands "honest men in
office—men with brains enough to
know dishonesty when they sec it and
courage enough to tight it wheresoever
thev lind it."
The gag WAS nt once ottered by the
chairman, l-ow llali, who declared
Wolf out of order and determined that
the resolution should not even be read,
and ordered Wolf to sit down. Hut
Wolf said he would not sit down so long
as he was right. The Philadelphia
rowdies and others who cling to the
rooster gang, hooted Wolf. The thing
became exciting, and the unfairness of
the chairman gained Wolf some frieuds
who demanded the reading of the reso*
lutiou, and after a heated wrangle it was
read, and then buried by the chairman
in the dark pockets of the committee
not to be heard of again.
This was the first act of the republican
convention endorsing the corrupt prac
tices connected with the riot claims.
One of the ring leaders in the corrupt
tion was a member from Philadelphia,
named Petrcfl" who was expelled from
the house a few winters ago for his cor
ruption. The investigating committee
last winter again found him in that kind
of bad work, and offered a resolution to
expel him, as he should have been—yea,
even literally kicked out of the house
with a pair of the thickest soled boots
in the state, hamuel Butler, of Chester
county, was a member of the house and
voted against the expulsion the doubly
corrupt Petroff, thus endorsing the riot
claims bill and the infamous practices
by which Petroff and hi? gang attempt
ed to fasten the claims upon the state.
This Samuel Butler was then nomina
ted by the republicans as their candidate
for state treasurer.
Here then we have a double endorse
ment, by the republicans of Pennsyl
vania, of the riot-claims and the cor
rupt practices connected therewith.
What say you voters and tax-payers?
Will you vote for Barr, the democrat,
with clean hands, or for Butler, with
his sallied paws?
The scene in the republican conven
tion when Wolf offered his anti-corrup
tion resolution is thus described by the
Times' special: The resolution went to
the secretary, who was about to read it
when Hall demanded to see what it was.
Hall is the attorney here for Kemble,
and will represent that gentleman in
tie prosecutions to be brought. When
he had looked over the resolution he
said it would be referred to the commit
tee, and it wasn't necessary to have it
read. People began at this point to be
come conscious that something was up.
Wolfe demanded that his resolution be
read. The chairman was immediately
in a high state of excitement. That he
had made a miserable blunder was ap
parent to everybody with an ounce of
sense, bat the chairman himself didn't
appear to appreciate it. He declined to
allow the resolution to be read, and in
sisted that Wolfe was out of order. It
was clear the excited and unbalanced
man in the chair, who was ignoring rules
and enforcing a gag law of bis own,
sometimes resorted to in ward meetings,
was not a match for the little man on
the floor, who undoubtedly had a right
to introduce a resolution and to have it
read. Wolfe held his ground, as he has
often done before on similar occasions,
and defied the efforts of the Chair. Hall
grew more excited each moment, and
was assisted in keeping up the disorder
by a lot of Philadelphia rounders, who
seemed to have the same instructions
that Hall had, to choke off Wolfe at all
hazards. They stood up in their seats
and shouted in whatever way they
could make the most noise ;thev helped
the chairman to tell Wolfe to sit down ;
they threatened to go and sit down on
him themselves; they shook tbeir fists
at him, and nsed all the various slang of
the slums that came to their minds on
the instant. It was not a pleasant state
of affairs for a supposed deliberative
body, but the chairman had brought it
about in bis utter ignorance of justice
or his refusal to recognize it. As Wolfe
bad been previously, by Colonel Hoot
en's gag-daw, cut off from any possibili
ty of making his speech, the rumpus
which Hallbuilded upon his resolution
just suited him. It was the only way
left in which he could get hiß mouth in
to the convention, and probably if he
had been going to lay out a line of ac
tion for the temporary chairman he
would have made the temporary chair
man act just as Hall did act. It brought
disgrace and final confusion on all who
actively opposed Wolfe and the sense
of fair play whicb most men have soon
showed itself in sympathy *or Wolfe.
The Chair decided that the resolution
should go to the committee without be
ing read, and Wolfe appealed. The
Chair refused to recognize this appeal.
There isn't the slightest doubt but that
the convention would have overwhelm
ingly condemned the chairman if the
appeal had been put to a vote. The dele
gates were getting tired of the arrogance
of the chairman and of the vnlgar slang
of the Philadelphia rounders, who were
his only assistants. The uproar was in
creasing. Wolfe held bis ground and
Quay became conscious that something
must be done to prevent the convention
becoming an absolute mob; be was also
certain that Hall never could untangle
things. Senator Cooper was appealed
to, and he began by explaining the rules
to the chairman, who objected as well as
he knew how to receiving information —
which he badly needed—from any
source. But Cooper persisted, and had
the aid of Barrett, of Lackawanna, and
finally got in a motion to have Wolfe's
resolution read. This was carried with
a cheer, the few Philadelphia rounders
only objecting. The rebuke was suffi
cient to calm down the chairman. <
WOICB'B resolution was then read. 1

The Ronapartists are imsatislied, ac
cording to a Paris despatch of the l/>n- I
don Times, which says that the recent
Ronapartist caucus which adopted the
resolution declaring that Prince Jerome
Napoleon has become the head of the
Ronaj-arle family evidently settled noth
ing. Only fifty-four Ronapartist Sena
tors ami Deputies out of 113 wore pres
ent, and though the resolution was
finally adopted, with only two dissen
tients, twenty-two of those present had
previously supported an amendment,
which was outvoted, declining to pro
nounce on questions beyond Jthe jutis
diction of the meeting, and affirming
their sentiments of fidelity to the Um
pire and the principles of order which
have always Inspired Its policy. As this
amendment conveyed an implied cen
sure on the antecedent* of Prince Je
rome, the feelings with which he is re
garded by a Urge section of the Rona
partist party are tolerably apparent.
Many of the sixty-one absentees, more
over, kept away from the meeting to
avoid committing themselves to a re
cognition of Prince Jerome. M. l'ao! de
Csssagnac. in his journal, the Pays, re
proaches Prince Jerome with entertain
ing a fear of evile, which deters him
from issuing a manifesto.
The Democracy of Pennsylvania in
their recent state convention, laid down
a plain, broad platform which will do
for any honest ritnen to stand upon.
The record of the party in the last few
years is consistent with the platform
aud its demand for honest government, ■
economy, and free and fair elections.
We append the platform here, and ask
for it the calm consideration of every
/frse/rof, Fi-at —That we, the Demo
cratic party of Pennsylvania, in Conven
tion assembled renew our vow? of fidelity
to the fundamental prlnciplea proclaimed
and practiced by the illustrious men who
settled our free institutions and founded
the Democratic party to protect and pre
serve them.
Sec 'Hti—That tie just power >. f the F !•
era! I'nion, the rights of the States and
the liberties of the people are vita! parts
of one harmonious system, and to save
each part :o its whole constitutional vigor
is to save the life of the nation
Third —That the Democratic party
maintains, as it ever has maintained, that
the military are and ought to be in all
things subordinate to the civil authorities
It denies, as it ever has denied, the rght
of the Federal administration to keep on
foot at the general expense a standing
army to invade the States for political
purposes without regard to constitutional
restrictions to control the people at the
polls, to protect and encourage fraudu
lent counts ef the voles, or to inaugurate
candidates rejected by the majority.
Fi. urth— That the right to a free ballot
is the right preservative of all rights; the
only means of peacefully redressing
grievances and reforming abuses. The
presence at the polls of a regular military
force and of a host of hireling officials,
claiming the power to arrest and imprison
citizens without warrant or hearing, do--
troys all freedom of elections, and up
turns the very foundation of self govern- j
ment. We call upon all good citizens to |
aid us in preserving our institutions from j
destruction by these imperial methods of
supervisingthe right of suffrage an 1 coer
cing the popular will, in keeping the way
to the ballot box open and free as it was
to *ur fathers; in removing the army t a
safe distance when the people assemble to
express their sovereign pleasure at the
polls, and in securing obedience to tneir
will when legally expressed by their
~F/th—That Rutherford B. liny ex
having been placed in power againit tb®
well known and legally expreaied will of
the people, is the representative of a con
spiracy only, and his claim of the right to
surround the ballet boxes with troops and
deputy marshals to intimidate at.d ob
struct the electors and bis unprecedented
use of the veto to maintain this unconsti
tutional and despotic power, are an insult
and a menace to the country.
Sirth— That the Democratic party as of
old favors a constitutional Currency ol
gold and silver and of paper convertible
into coin.
Seventh— That we are oppeaetl te the
lyitetu of subsidise by the General GOT
eminent under which, during the period
ef Republican aicendancy, political ring?
and corporations profited at the people's
expense, and to any appropriation of the
public moneys or the public credit to any
•bject but the public service. The reforms
and economies enforced by the Demo-
cratic party since its advent to power in
the lower Ileuse of Congress hare saved
the people many millions of dollars, and
we believe that a like result woald follow
its restoration to power in the State of
Eighth— That the Democratic party, be
ing the natural friend of the workingman,
and having throughout its history stood
botweon him and oppression, renews its
expression of sympathy for honest labor,
and its promise of protection to its
Ninth— That we look with alarm and
apprehension on the pretensions of great
transportation companies to be above tho
fundamental law of this Commonwealth,
which governs all else within eur borders,
and until they accept the Constitution of
1873 in good faith they should remain ob
jects of the utmost vigilance and jealousy
bv both the Legislature and the people.
Tenth— That the recent attempt, under
the personal direction of the ruling Re
publican leaders, to debauch tbe Legisla
ture by wholesale bribery and corruption,
and take from the Commonwealth four
million dollars for which its liability had
never been ascertained, is a* fresh and
alarming evidence of the aggressiveness
of corporate power in collusion with polit
ical rings, and should receive the signal
condemnation of the people at the polls.
Eleventh— That the present condition of
the State Treasury, a bankrupt general
fund, and even ichools and charities una
ble to get tho money long since appropri
ated to their support, is a sufficient illus
tration of the reckless financial misman
agement of the Republican party.
Four murderers were among the radi

Km I rod companies having large tract
of land for sale are interested in getting
negroes to locate u|*n it. Ihe poor de
luded negro will never he aide to pay
for the land he buys, and these men
know it, but the railroad will get the
benefit of whatever improvement* he
makes on the land. Some of them
cheat the negroes out of what little
money they have. A matt recently
went through llolmes county selling the
negroes ftugs with which to stake oil
their land in Kansas. This is an old
game, but those jKHir negroes were de

they had and told them to meet him on

They could not be persuaded that they

Senator Lamar said that he did not
believe that there would be anything!
like a general emigration movement |
among the negroes, that * >me w >u!!

"Should the negro population leave'
the state, could other labor be procur

"Ye*. *ir." replied Mr. Lamar, "Mi**.*-

In order to show how superior white
labor would prose to colored, Col.
I-amar said he ha<l a white man em
ployed on his plantation six months,
ami in that short time he had unproved
everything tinder his charge. This man
had employed his practical knowledge
of furoiiug, and made improvements in
the croo and stock that negroes would
never think of. Senator Lamar thought
that if the negroes were to "exodus" in
a body, such valuable white laborer* a*
the one on hi* plantation would go into
the state to cultivate the land.

always ready to learn, the honest Scot, tbe
generous Cell, andOmish by "wholesale.'
N lie vcr heard of this class of people
settlit •in a p or country. Let m* here
compile a few facts ; "The north and
south limits of the region indicated are

of Illinois. Wilkin these limits is the
great htart of the United States, and here
are found the bulk oftbe population, com-'

The social, educational and religious
elements are the wonder and admiration
o! all new comers, and would do credit to
a country twice as old. Schools and'
c irchi s are found everywhere, and law
and order are as safely rsUbliheda any
where in the world. The rowdy element,
lis* - ever obtained a foothold in Nebra*-.
Out of every ihcu.'anj who settle there
and prosper, one poor homesick soul re
turns, and, in the beat of imagination,'
give- all kinds of reports, viz.: that peo
ple work, bunt and fish on Sunday, and;
that men are frequently murdered thcro.
II you ask me how I would reconcile this
with the statement above, I would simply
say that you need not go out of our own
county to find such things. A careful in
vestigation would disclose the fact that ev
• ry Sunday, men fish, hunt, chop weed
and do other work. This, however, is the
exception and not the rule. It is just so
in the thickly settled portions of Neb.
With regard to murders I need not say
much, t have before me a copy of tbe
New Y rk Hrrahi, which gives an account
ef no less than ten murders, trials fer mur
der and executions for Uie tame crime, not
to say anything about outrages, assaults,
swindles almost ad infinitum. This is ev
ery week. If half a doaen murders are
perpetrated in Kansas and Nebraska,

and magnify terv degree*. 1 verily bo

man never gels so far west as the Missouri
River. He has neither tbe bravery nor
ambition to carry htm so far from thei
hou >• where he wa born. Only the live,
i ourngi us, self-centntanding men and
women of the East go to the far West.'
The country where they were born is •
longer large enough for their ambition
and powers, and tliev drift with
the tide of empire. The impulse, brain,
faith and ambition that have outgrown the
circumscribed life of a Pennsylvania bor
"Ugh, a Massachusetts work shop, aOreen

There is a- high an average ot culture in

Kor the Reporter,
Twaa on a burning summer'# day
"Old Sol" hi* fervid raya
Shot down with almeat meltiag force,
On hill-tops green with maize ;
Four jolly ladi had ventured out
From kind, paternal roof.
To aeek tome cool, tome shady apot
From din tad whir! aloof.
Kager aa iada are wont to be,
ilertea were far 100 alow ;
Hut laden down with hat Lola full,
To the <|ej>ot they did go ;
boon a a the thund'rir.g train drove up,
Baggage and ail were checked.
And four adventurer* acltlod down
To ponder and reflect.
I'wai but a fifteen minute# ride,
Ihoy landed aafe and aound
On one of Centre'# fertile spots,
On Fowler'a hallowed ground
Tbeaazednot where they now abould
liut quickly aheuldered up
And plodded on with aweating face
To iome lone abelt'ring hut.
At laat the wvieouie structure 'peared
Through tree# and buabea thick ;
Ouaided by nature'# sentinels.
Tail pine# and winding creek ;
With thankful heaila they entered kere,
Unpacked and apread a board,.
And ne'er enjoyed they repeal more
Though served by a lcrd.
When aated appetite# rebelled
Against tbia regal least.
Twaa he teemed ever happier
Who labored bard the least ;
Hut that posterity might know
Where rested weary feet.
They called Ibecatnp with one accord,
The iialrhelor'i Retreat.
Hut 1 will venture here to aay,
1 aaid it then aa now,
That scarcely one ia all the four
Weuld make a aolemn vow
To live in single-Lloasedne,.
Through all the year# to come,
Uepmed of that rare happmea#
Which wive* can biing to home.
Net long content toatav within
Their newly christened home,
i ur quartet'.- wandered ferth o'er rock#
A retliett at the foam ;
They. dauntleaa, scaled the daring
They tcourad all the plain.
Nor left they scarce a tingle spot
Their feet had not yet gained.
While mountains echoed ba< k the strain
From heart# both light and free,
And birda were started from their neata
By ahouta of wildest glee ;
et were the speckled finny tribe
Itemembered by theae four
And, tempted by the treach'roua hook,
Were drawn upon the shore.
At even when the tun bad set
And £th were left alone.
Our heroea were quite glad once more
Te reach their mountain home ;
And et from thicket here end there
Hioke forth the whippoorwul
Accomp nied by the murmuring*
Of tome pure mountain rill.
Then with their camp*£ret blazing high
Thev gathered round them tbere,
While tonga of sweetest melody
Ring out on midnight air ;
And many were the l.armieta jeata
That found expression there.
Provoking many a hearty laugh
Dispelling ev'ry fear.
But tired now and aleepy too
Thev sought their lewly couch,
And lewly vhi# at low could be
'Twas en the floor I vouch ;
Yet choice could net be berbored here,
They treetured any place
W here they mesquitea might escape
And Morpneut embrace.
The morning dawned at brgbt and fair
Aa mortal well could with.
The day brought gueat* unto their door
Who doublleaa wanted flah ;
The jolly boy# were giad to aee
Upon their own clean floor
The atateiy. worthy peraonage
Of a wakeful editor.
If editor# con handle books
At well as pen and ink.
The press will toon be burdensome
And fish become extinct;
But hope diet hard for atill we hope
The finnlet may outlive
The cunning trick# of editors
W ilh reedy bait to give.
But now the light'ning baskets warn
Our noble beroes four,
They soon must breek their friendly
And ge to where there's more ;
The one must sway the tutor's rod.
Another run a store.
> A third must turn the parch cd clod
And one mutt fathom lore.
I Ae rears en years their courses roll,
, And songsters sing their lay;.
The heart, the heart must linger still
1 With pleasure on those days ;
' And then and there they fixed the day
> No matter where they roam.
To visit, all in five year* hence.
