DANIEL O BARK, of Allegheny.
The Hellefonte Rrpnf'ican has taken
the Sherman spasms. Why t4ii® slight
of the fraudulent ?
A prominent banner in Democratic
processions in Ohio is Citizen Foster®
"War Record: Calico, seventy-five cents
a yard."
If any republican statesman desires
to have a presidential boom let him con
suit Peter llerdick who understands all
about the boom business.
If Pennsylvania were- called upon to
furnish a candidate for the next presi
dency, we could present Wm. A. M so
lace,"one of the able and clear headed
statesmen of the period, whose long pub
lic service bears a blameless record.
As a Speculation the Philadelphia
Centennial F.xhibition was not • success.
The parties who lost money wia ask
Congress to reimburse them in the sum
of a million and a half dollars, which
they claim to have subscribed as a loan
by the general government.
Got. Hoyt, true to hi® friends, has par
doned another Mollie Maguire, Dennis
F. Canning, of Columbia county, who
several years ago was convicted as an
accessory to some of the murders com
mitted by the gang. He was convicted
on two indictments and sentenced seven
years' imprisonment on each.
• 1f it were n"t for Uncle Sam who
would supply John Bull with fresh
meat" On 26 ult., from New York five
ocean steamers left that port carrying
American beef to Kurope. The "lriria
cria, which sailed for Bristol, has in
cluded in her cargo 210 bullocks; the
Bolivia, for Glasgow, 805 quarter® of
fresh meat and 205 carcasses of sheep;
the Britannic, for Liverpool, 50 tons of
fresh meat, the California, for London.
196 head of cattle, stX> quarters of beef
and 100 carcasses of sheep, and The
Queen, for Liverpool, 150 tons of fresh
Marks is the name of the revenue col
lector at New Orleans. Marks was one
of the fellows connected with the re
returning board in its stealing the presi
dency for Hayes. Have® then appoint
ed Marks revenue oflicer —having given
all the other returning boarders office®.
Marks entered into a bargain with cer
tain dealers in tobacco to leave them
slip clear of revenue, he to have his nest
well feathered for it. In this way the
government has been defrauded out of a
large sum of money. Detectives have
discovered work, but the fraudu
lent administration has not dared to
have him prosecuted, because it owes
Marks something.
Here is the resolution that almost set
the republican state convention crazy,
and caused a panic like a Wolf among a
flock of sheep. Queer that they should
have been afraid of something that
reads as follows :
R/t'jivi-I, That in view of the develop
ments of corrupt practices in connection
with the "riot bill" in the last House,
we emphatically reaffirm that part of
the platform adopted by the Republican
State Convention at in 1875,
and which was read op ted by the Repub
lican State Convention at Uarrisburg j n
1876. which demands "honest men in
office—men with brains enough to
know dishonesty when they see it and
cograge enough to tight it wheresoever
they find it."
There was once an old law in the
commonwealth which struck high at
low necked dresses, and if enforced at
this day, might bring in revenue enough
to pay a large portion of the interest on
the public debt. A contributor to the
Washington Post furnishes that paper
with a copy of the act, which we here
copy for the benefit of the lady readers
of the Reporter:
"In the early days of Pennsylvania
the law makers took the subject in hand
and enacted—"that if any white female,
of ten years upward shall appear in any
public street, lane, highway, church,
court house, tavern, ball room, theatre,
or any other place of public resort, with
naked shoulders (i. e. low necked dres
ses), being able to purchase necessary
clothing, shall forfeit and pay a fine of
not less than one, nor more than two
hundred dollars." It was, however,
graciously provided, that women of
questionable character, might go with
bare shoulders, as a badge of distinc
tion between the chaste and unchaste.
How we have degenerated. Deckxct."
There is a little ripple in the radical
kitchen on acconnt of a little rascality
among the faithful.
The charges against Chairman Hatton
of the Republican State Committee of
lowa, of having used campaign funds
for his own purpose, have aroused the
attention of other local committees and
have put them on their inquiry. Mr.
Gorbam, who is now accused by the
Administration of opposing the Repub
licans of California because he failed to
receive a bureau office here, testified
before the Wallace Committee to the
amounts of money sent by the Congres
sional Committee last year to th* differ
ent States. This led to an investigation
of the charges against Hatton. Now it
is whispered that other financial irreg
ularities against the brethren have been
discovered, and that all that has been
raised for the advancement of Republi
can principles has not gone for that pur
pose, but has been used to enrich good
Republican chairmen. There is much
sadness among the good and mncb
swearing among the Chandlers at tbe
Beading Kailroad wins in the legal
fight, in the interPst of the Pennsylvania
railroad, to prevent the Beading's con
nection with the North Pennsylvania
'road, thereby securing its New xork
'connection. There are now three rail
• road lines from Philadelphia to New
York, and the fare should come down
to a dollar. It is only that figure be
tween New York and Boston by Sound
steamer, over double the distance.
Aaron Smith led a mob that hanged
George Moore,at Carlisle, Ind., and was
complimented by his comrades for his
boldness in that outrage. A few nights
afterward, 3 party of fun-loving young
men dragged him out of his bed, put%
rope around his neck, and told him that
his death hour had come. They would
have been puzzled to apewer if he had
asked them what he had done to dis-
E lease them; but, to their astonishment,
e confessed numerous thefts, and ab
jectly begged for mercy. He is not the
popular man that he was before this
trial of his qualities.
The commissioner of pensions says
that he will be able to dispose of a much
i larger amount of business during the
present than the last fiscal year. The
prospective expenditures of the govern
ment and the increase of available
means, will from present appearances,
enable the secretary of the treasury, to
place as occasion may require, a large
sum at his disposal for the payment of
the arrears of pensions that heretofore
have been accumulating. The advan
tage which these sums, paid throughout
the country, has been to the people, is
alluded to by the commissioner as be
yond appreciation by the general public.
In the rural districts, he is informed by
representatives visiting here, the money
has generally been put to some useful
purpose, such as the improvement of
farms or in the purchase gf homes or re
lieving them from indebtedness, so that
however great the immediate incon
venience to ttie treasury has been at
times, toe material interests of the
country have been much benefited. The
money disbursed to penaiouers iu the
cities, it seeius from the reports, lias not
found such profitable and substantial in
vestment. The commissioner ho|>es to
be able to dispose of the bulk of the ar
rears esses during the present year.
The correspondent of the Ix>ndon
Times sent this vivid account from l'aris
on Wednesday May 24, 1871, of the des
truction of the palace:
Ah ! this morning! Its pale flush of
aurora-bloom was darkest, most sombre
night for the once proud, now stricken
and humiliated city. When the sun
rose, what saw he? Not a fair city on
that within the last year Sol has looked
down more than once. But black
clouds floated his ravs —clouds that rose
from the Palladium of France, Great
Clod ? that men should lie so mad as to
strive to make universal ruin because
their puny course of factiousness
is run ! The tlauies from the Palace of
the Tuileries. kindled by damnable pe
troleum, insulted the soft light of the
morning, and cast lurid rays on grimy,
recreant Frenchmen who skulked from
their dastardly inceudiaristn to pot at
countrymen from behind a barricade.
How the place burned! The tlauies
revelled in the historical palace, whip
ped up the rich furniture, buret out the
plate-glass windows, brought down the
fantastic roof. It was in the Prince im
perial's wing, facing the Tuileries gar
dens, where the demon of tire tiret had
his disma! sway. By 8 o'clock the whole
of this wing was nearly burned out. .As
I reached tneend of the Hue Dauphin
the red belches of flames were bursting
out from the corner of the Tuileries fac
ing the private gardens and the Hue de
Kivoli; the rooms occupied by the King
of Prussia and bis suit on the visit to
France the year of the exhibition. There
is a furious jet of flame pouring out of
ttie window where Bismarck used to sit
and smoke. Crash ! Is it au explosion
or a fall of flooring that causes this
burst of black smoke and ml sparks in
our faces? God knows what hell-de
vices may be within that burning pile,
it were well, surely, to give it a wide
berth. And so eastward to the Place du
Palais Royal, which is still unsafe by
reason of shot and shell from the neigh
borhood of the Hotel de Ville. And
there is the great archway by which
troops were wont to enter into the
Place du Carrousel. Is the fire there
yet? Just there and no more. Could
the archway be cut the Louvre, with its
artistic riches, might still be spared
But there are none to help. The troops
are lounging supinely in the rues, intent
—and who shall blame weary, powder
grimed men? —on bread and wine. And
so the devastator leaps from chimney to
chimney, from window to window. He
is over the archway now, and I would
not give two hours' purchase for all the
riches of the Louvre. In the name of
modern vandalism, what means that
burst of smoke and jet of fire. Alas, for
art! the Louvre is on Are independently
and so is the Palais Royal and the Ho
tel de Ville, where the rump of the
Commune are cowering amid their in
cendiarism, and the Ministry of Finance
and many another public and private
building besides, of which more anon.
The report of the bureau of statistics
giving the imports and exports for the
last fiscal year is just published. The
bureau adds to this several comparative
statements which are extremely inter
esting. The total foreign trade of the
country, imports and exports, excluding
coin and bullion, last year reached f 1,-
156,220,594, which was an increase over
the preceding year of $24,313,654. Iu
round numbers this increase was made
up of $15,500,000 in exports and s.•>>*'-
000 in imports. The exports exceeded
;je imports by $205,000,000, or about
$7,000,000 more than last year. It is in
structive to compare the last four years
with the four years which preceded
1873, inclusive. Between these two pe
riods were the years 1874-75, in which
the differences nearly balance each
other. But comparing 1870-3, with
1576-9. we find an excess of imports in
the former of $423,000,000. and excess of
exports in the latter of $753,000,000. In
the first period, the exports were sl,-
802,000,000; in the latter they reached
$2,54-,' i". In tin- first period, the
imports were $2.225,000,000, in the latter
they were only $1,7'J5,000,000. The total
trade in merchandise, in the first peri
od, was $4,027,000,000; in the latter it
was $4,343,000,000. In the first period
we exported of coin and bullion more
than we imported, $238,000,000; in the
second period the excess was only $65,-
000,000. Our readers will, of course, un
derstand that these figures are but an
approximate and partial statement of
our commercial intercourse with foreign
nations; but the results which they show
are sufficiently striking.
Mr. E. B. Whiting, a well known
bookseller in St. Albans. Vt., was cured
of the most distressing Piles, in a very
short time by the use of Kidney-Wort.
He now uses it as a family medicine in
all cases of billiousness, liver complaint,
and disordered Kidneys. Those habitu
ally costive are quickly cured by it.
According to tbe Pensacoia Gazette
Parisian capitalists propose to cut a ship
canal through Florida, from tbe Atlan
tic Ocean to tbe Gulf of Mexico. A bill
passed tbe Florida Senate, at the last
session, incorporating the Florida Ship
Canal Company, but went over in the
House, along with other unfinished
business. The Gaze.te says that tbe
Parisian capitalists expect that tbe
franchise will be obtained in due season
and have explored the conntry with the
view of ascertaining the most desirable
route. It is claimed that the contem
plated canal will lesson the length of
voyages from Northern Atlantic ports
into tbe Gulf by about one thousand

Cape May, August I.—The first case of
drowning this season occurred here to
day. Rev. John Graham, D. D., nitce
and nephew came down this morning on
the excursion train, and shortly before
eleven o'clock went in to bathe near Den
izot's pier. Mr. Graham was recontly
Irom Brighton, England, and was an ex
cellent swimmer. He went Out to the end
of the pier with his niece, and shortly af
terwards a cry for help was heard, and
those on the pier saw his niece clinging to
the pier and holding up her uncle. A
rope was thrown to them, which was of no
avail. The bravo girl held on until the
life boat arrived Dr Graham was taken
on shore and every effort was made to re
store him to life ; but it was evident that
he was dead before the life boat reached
The l>emocracy of Pennsylvania In
their recent state convention, laid down
n plain, broad platform which will do
for any honest eitiaen to stand upon.
The record of the party in the last few
years is consistent with the platform
and it* demand for honest government,

Wo append the platform here, and ask
for it the calm consideration of every
RrtoUtti, Etftt -That we, ths Demo
eratio party of l*enny Ivniita, in Conven
tion assembled renew our Town of fidelity
to the fundsmental principles proclaimed
and practiced by the illustrious men who
settled our free institutions and founded
the Democratic party to protect and pre
serve them.
Aireontf—That the just p 'or of the Fed
eral Union, the right* of the Slates slid
the liberties of the people are vila! parts
of one harmonious -ys'.etn, and to save
each part in its whole constitutional 'g ,; r
is to save the life of the nation
TKirJ That Pie Democratic party
maintains, as U ever has maintained, that
the military are and > light to he in all
things subordinate to the civil authorities
It denies, as it ever has denied, the right
of the Federal administration to keep on
foot at the general expanse a standing
army to invade the Slates tor political
purposes without regard t > fiitulionai
restrictions to control the people at the
polls, to protect and encourage fraudu
lent counts t the votes, or to inaugurate
candidates rejected by the majority.
Fourth— That the right to a free ballot
is the right preservative of all right?, the
only ui.'an* of peacefully redressing
grievances and reforming abuse*. Ihe
presence at the poll* of a regular military
force and of a host of hireling etHcial*.
claiming the power to arrest and imprison
citizen* without warrant or hearing, des
troy* all freedom of elections, and up
turns the very foundation of self govern
ment. We call upon all good citizens to
aid u* in preserving our institutions from
destruction by these imperial methods of
upervi*ingthe right ofsull'rage and .oer
cing the popular will, in keeping the way
to the ballot box open and free a* it was
to our lathers,- in removing the army to a
safe distance when the people assemble to
express their sovereign pleasure at the
poll*, and in securing obedience to their
will when legally expressed by their
fifth—That Rutherford B Hayes
having been pieced in power against the
well known end legally expressed will of
the people, is the representative of a con
spiracy only, and his claim of the right to
surround the ballet boxes with troop* and
deputy marshals to intimidate and ob
struct the electors and his unprecedented
use of the veto to maintain this unconsli
tutional and despotic power, are an insult
and a menace to the country.
StxfA—That the Democratic party as of
old favors a constitutional Currency of
gold and silver and of paper convertible
into coin.
Seventh— That we are opposed to the
system of subsidies by the General Gov
eminent under which, during the period
•f Republican ascendancy, political rings
and corporations profited at the people's
expense, and to any appropriation of the
public moneys or the public credit to any
abject but the public service. The reforms
and economies enforced by the Demo
cratic party since its advent to power in
the lower House of Congress have saved
the people many millions of dollar-, and
we believe that a like result would 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
between him and oppression, renews its
expression of sympathy for honest labor,
and its promise of protection to iu
Ai'if/i—That we look with alarm and
apprehension on the pretensions of great
transportation companies to be above the
fundamental law of this Commonwealth,
which governs all else within our borders,
and until tbev accept the Constitution of
1873 in good faith tbey should remain ob
jects of the utmost vigilance and jealousy
bv both the Legislature and the people.
TVnM—That the recent attempt, under
the personal direction of the ruling Re
publican leaders, to debauch the Legisla
ture by wholesale bribery and corruption,
and take from the Commonwealth four
million dollars for which its liability had
cover 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
tho isUte Treasury, a bankiupt genera!
fund, and even schools and charities una
ble to get the money long since appropri
ated te their support, is a sufficient illus
tration of the reckless financial misman
agement of the Republican party.
A Trunk Liue Projected by the
Heading Company.
Philadelphia, July 28-—lt is said that
the Reading railroad management are
projecting the plan of a grand trunk line
between the \\ est and East. but the "ffi

construction of a branch track betwaen
the depot at Harrisburg and Baldwin,
with the ostensible object of carrving ore
U> tbe iron mills located there, it is claim
ed, was but part of the plan, and that the
lease of the North I'enn Road gave the
project a real impetus by providing an
outlet in New York. It is now said the
road will extend its lines to Pittsburg,
there to connect with the Pittsburg and
Lake Erie. The proposed raute is over
the Cumberland Valley Rad from Har

Pittsburg, August I.—Though the ter

For tho Reporter. I
Among the many plans proposed how to J
meet the expenses of Church and Sunday- i
school debts, festivals, or church fairs •
seem to be tho leading objects. No doubt U
the first one, as well as the last, was met e
with muck apposition by some people ; '
hut such authority has been laid aside as II
erroneous and absurd The object of this
article is to uphold the latter, and show ['
some of the unsoundness of the limit? to
which church fairs or festivals have been
carried. Mr. Moody in his opening ad
dress in Brooklyn said : "If you want a
revival of religion you must put aside all
those distracting church fairs " In reply >
to a question asked at tho Hippodroui)
convention, "Can two excitements exist
at the same time in the same town?" he
-aid, "Yes, it one is a revival and the oth
er a political caucus ; for the politicians
will attend to their own busiucss and the 1
Christian* to thelrt; hut if on* U a church i
(air. it will kill every hit of religion there
it." Again : "Do 1 approve of church j
fair*? You shouldn't atk me tucb qua*- 1
lion* if yon don't want strong answer*. 1 |
believe tho devil hat a hand In every
church fair" Now, to all thato ©harae-j

There it no comment to be tuaJe on that
remark, except the ever-abounding Scrip
ture declarations concerning Mod s love of
cheerful giver, ll is not reasonable to be
-1 lieve that money can be aught but a curse
to tbe Church of Mod wbich is contributed
from any motive save thalof his lore. It
must be a free-will off-ring. None other
are acceptable unto Mod. As an evidence
of this, the contribution of the Widow's
mile affords an illustrious example. Cnri-t
•ays: Tbtt widow gave more than aii
they which cast into the treasury, because
of her penury. Do we ten tucb men at a
{festival, who will give the iast dime they
possess without obtaining an equivalent
save the Grace ot Mud ? Yet such should
be tbe case. Otherwise it cannot be'con
sidered as the Work of God. In fact
'church fain are nothing more than human
.invention*. There it no Divine law about
lit Of course the general imprestion it,
'that iU benefits are intended to promote
the cause of Mod. But the question may
arise, do thote who attend church fairs
have any tucb intentions? The Word u!
Mod teaches < Heb iv. ljj tbtl (sod is a
discerns: of thought* and intent* of the
{heart. We may be justified by tsying
that if tucb Contributions are not made ex
ipressly as a free-will offering, they will
! not be acceptable unto Mod ; for the Word
of God teaches that He ha* no delight in
Smpiout feasts, or extravagant living.
That festivals are a means of temptation

be defined. Many suggestions might be
