The Vice Presidency.
It is very evident that Andrew G.
Curtin is again to be denied justice by
the leaders of the party he has so earn
estly worked for and so faithfully ad
hered to. For United States Senator,
two years ago, he was the choice of a
very largo majority of his party, but
he was cheated and sold by Reresen
tatives, and defeated. Now ho is be
fore his party as its choice for Vice
President of the :United States, and
again his enemies in every district in
the State are at work to defeat him.
The following from the Harrisburgh
Daily State Guard will give the read
er an idea of the "situation."
'' "Tun VICE PRESIDENCY.—From what
we have lately soon in leading West
ern papers, and heard from prominent
men in the extreme East, we have lit.
tlo' doubt that a combination is now
being made' if it is not already corn-
Ploted,.to throw the Republican nom
ination for the Vico Presidency in the
Southwest. There is no one to dispute
with the West the nomination for the
Presidency, which nomination it is as
, sorted by Western politicians, was not
secured by any action of the men of
that section. Grant's nomination for
the Presidency is the resultofa nation
al demand, as much labored for by
Eastern as by Western, Northern or
Southern Republicans. Hence, say
Western politicians, what so essential
ly conduces to the certainty of success,
and what was demanded by the com
bined party.im its only means of tri
umph dare not be ascribed to the cred
it of any section. Acting in this faith,
the whole West and Southwest, leav
ing out Ohio, are unquestionably labor
ing for the nomination of Schityler
Colfax for Vice President. Mr. Wade's
friends say ho will not accept the nom
ination for the Vico Presidency, un
less it is unanimously tendered to him.
This is characteristic of the veteran
Senator and incorruptible Republican.
Ho is an unselfish man, and despises
mere contests for place. His battle
has always been for principle, for
which ho has labored longer and sac
rificed more than any man in the
country. -But no civilian living pan
Secure a unanimous nomination for
the Vice Presidency. Hence, if Mr.
Wade is firm in his resolve only to ac
cept the nomination on its unanimous
offer, ho will not be the candidate.—
Pennsylvania will have trouble in her
delegation, and although it is the hon
est desire of the people of the State,
that its vote in the Chicago Conven
tion should be a unit for Curtin, the
political tricksters and charlatans who
have been enriched by prostituting the
powers of the Republican party, will
,go to Chicago and disgrace the _Key
stone State by defying the will of its
Republican majority. Outside of New
York Fenton has no strength. The
Eastern States, acting on an understand
ing with the West, will go in a body for
Colfax. We have this fact from a gen
tleman who feels sure of the reliabili
ty of the statement he makes. The
East and the West, combined, will
make the Vice Presidential nomina
tion. It is the determination of these
sections not to allow Ohio, Pennsylva
nia or New York to control this honor
and what will help the East and West,
is the fact that either one of the three,
great States is ready to veto so as to
not allow the other to secure this nom•
ination. As a Pennsylvania, our choice
is Curtin, first and last, but we are
_prepared to support the nomination of
the Convention. In the meantime it
is only fair that our readers should
understand the moves now being made
on the political chess-board. It is our
duty, as a journalist, to publish facts
which are calculated to enlighten our
readers. The fact that the Republi•
cans of the East and the West are
combining to make_the Vice Presiden
tial nomination, is interesting now,and
will be more interesting as the Chica
go Convention approaches."
MrFish brooding is bringing to light
many interesting facts in their natural
history. The hatching of fish eggs is
said by experts in that; business to be
easier and more surer than the hatch
ing of fowl's eggs. Tho whole expense
of putting fifty million shad in the Con
necticut river did not exceed fifty dol
lars. The eggs of shad put in water
of suitable temperature, produceyoung
fish in a few days. The salmon trout
eggs require a longer incubation than
those of' most birds. Salmon require
two months or more, under the most
favorable circumstances. Tho Now
England Fish Commissioners are hav
ing great luck, in the hatching lino, at
the Charlestown Springs, in New
Hampshire, where they deposited 40,-
000 eggs in October. They hatched
on the 11th of December, just sixty
two days from the time they were ta
ken from the parent fish. The eggs of
the salmon trout, at these springs, were
thirty.fivo days in hatching, which is
said to be a very short time. The, an
nual catch of shad. in the Connecticut
has dwindled to about 500,000. if 50,-
000,000 wore turned into the river, as
reported, shad ought to be plenty and
very cheap next spring. For the sal
mon we shall have to wait longer.

to maturity. -

nomination to the office he so ably fills,
was with the assent and approbation
of thousands of persons who appreci

Official Report 'of Gen. Meade on the
WASHINGTON, March 2S.—The Sec
retary of War sent to the House to-day,
in compliance with a resolution of that
body, the official report of Major• Gen•
eral Meade to General Grant, dated
Atlanta, Ga., March 23d, giving the
following analysis of the returns of the
veto in Alabama at the election, sub•
miffing to the registered voters the
constitution framed by the Convention
of that State :
total vote cast for the constitution, 70,812
Total vote cast against, 1,005
Total vote cast at the election, 71,817
Votes cast by colored men, 62,104
Votes cast by white men, 0,702
Not separated, 2,921
Colored votes east for the constitution, 62,089
Colored votes cast against, 105
Whito votes cost for theconstitution, 5,802
White votes cast against, 000
Now the total vote at the election is
71,817, and deducting the vote in Sum
ter rejected, 1458, the actual vote cast
at the election is 70,359, and the con
stitution fails of ratification by 8114,
that is to say, the whole vote cast in
these counties, where the election was
held, falls short of one-half of the num
her reported voters in these counties
by 8114, and the constitution, there
fore, under the law requiring one-half
the registered voters to cast their votes
is not ratified.
"Acknowledging the importance of
the State being at the earliest moment
restored to her proper relations in the
Union, I cannot but look on the result
of the rocent election as an expression
of opinion that the registered voters
no not desire to be restored under the
constitution submitted to them, and in
view of the recent acts'of Congress to
givo the ratification to a majority of
the votes cast, I would prefer seeing
the convention reassembled for a re
vision of the constitution, and revised
constitution submitted to the people
under the new law. lam of the opin
ion that a revised constitution more
liberal in its terms, and confined to the
requirements of the Reconstruction
laws would, in Alabama, as I have oe•
cesion to expect it will in Georgia and
Florida, meet with approval of a ma
jority of the registered voters ; and I
beg leave to call your attention to the
difficulty of carrying on a government

of anise qualified to take part in the

The Pittsburgh Commercial of Meh.
26, says :
The votes taken in open session and
in private consultation, as they have
been reported by our special dispatch
es, possess a decided interest as hear
ing on the prospect of the President's
conviction. Seven Republicans voting
with the Democrats will acquit him,
two-thirds of the Senate being neces
sary to convict. In the secret session
of the 13th, on fixing the time when
the President should be required to
answer, there were three votes taken,
varying somewhat, but not essentially
in their bearing on the main question.
The ayes wore all Republicans ; the
nays were composed of all the Demo
crats and certain Republicans. Ono
vote stood ayes 27, nays 20 ; another,
ayes 28, nays 23. In the secret ses•
sion of the Senate, on Monday, the
proposition being to strike out April
2d, and insert March 30, as the day
for proceeding with trial, the vote
was, ayes 28, nays 23. On that occa
sion the following Republican Sena
tors voted with the Democrats : Messrs.
Anthony, Corbett, Edmunds, Fessen

son, Norton, Sherman, Sprague, Trum
bell, and Van Winkle, in all twelve.—
As a general thing these Senators have
voted with the Democrats. Mr. Wade

stice took his seat, and the President's
counsel, with the managers and the
me i rnbers of the House, also took seats.
Mr. Boutwell, one of the Managers,
road the following replication, and a
copy was ordered to bo furnished to
the counsel for the President.
The House of Representatives of the
United States have considered the
several answers of Andrew Johnson,
President of the United States, to the
several articles of impeachment against
him by them exhibited in the name of
themselves and of all the people of the
United States, and reserving to them
selves all the advantage of exception
to the insufficiency of the 'answer to
each and all of the several articles of
impeachment exhibited against the
said Andrew Johnson, President of
the United States, do deny each and
every averment in said several an
swers, or either of them, which denies
or traverses the acts, intents, crimes or
misdemeanors charged against the said
Andrew Johnson in said articles of im.
peachment, or either of them, and for
replication to the said answer do say
that the said Andrew Johnson, Presi
dent of the United States, is guilty of
the high crimes and misdemeanors
mentioned in said articles, and that the
House of Representatives are ready to
prove the same.
The motion pending at the adjourn
ment, made by the President's counsel,
for time to prepare for trial came up.
Mr. Johnson moved to fix the time
at ten days.
Mr. Sumner moved an amendment,
to proceed with the trial from day to
day, Sundays excepted. -
At 3.25 p. in., the Senate reappeared
having been out exactly two hours.
Order having been restored, the Chief
Justice said: am directed to in
form the counsel that the Senate has
agreed to an order in response to their
application which will now be read !
Ordered, That the Senate will com
mence the trial of the President upon
the articles of impeachment exhibited
against him on Monday, the 30th day
of March, inst., and proceed therein
with all dispatch under the rules of the
Senate bearing upon the trial of an im
peachment,. After a momentary pause
tho Chief Justice asked, have the coun

counsel to interpose objections to-mor

the intention of seeing the court in

Senators in advance by telegraph or

NEW MACHINE FOR PxOOING SHOES.
—A hand pegging machine was exhi

it is stated, is really a valuable inven•

and the-solo fastened onto the upper
leather in the same way as in pegging
by hand. The machine is self-feeding
and as it moves it cuts the peg from
a wooden "ribbon," punches the hole
and drives the peg to its place, all in
an instant, and closes its work perfect
ly. An experienced workman can
peg two rows on a No. 9 heavy bro
gan in ono minute. The machine
works equally well on heavy and fine
work, and good judges who saw its
operation pronounced it capable of
doing all it claims to do. The price is
within the means of country shoemak

HOUSE ENTERED BY AN ARMY OR
RATS. —A Couple of nights ago a small

bed aslep with her two little ones,
when sho was aroused by the screams
of the children. On nivalting she was
horrified to find the bed fhirly covered
with rats, while•the floor of the room
was almost black with them. Her
children at her side were screaming
wildly, not alone through terror, but
through pain also,, for the vermin seiz•
ed them by the nose, ears and cheeks,
and were rapidly Settling themselves
down on every part of their facet. Of
course, with a mother's instinct, the
woman immediately rescued her chil
dren, while the'rats scampered off in
all directions and quickly disappeared.
The faces of the children were cut
and bleeding several places, and the
wounds of the nose of ono of them
were' considered so serious that Dr.
Lawler was called in, and in his hands
the little ones have been well oared
