MraThe Harrisburg State. guard is
an independpnt paper in the right
place. If it perSevores it will succeed
in reforming legislation. The best
thing that can be said in its favor, is,
that corrupt politicians and "rings" all
over the State denounce it.
To-day, Tuesday, the verdict of the
High Court of Impeachment will be
rendered. What it will be it is impos
sible to say, with a certainty. The gen
eral impression is that before to-mor
row evening Mr. Wade will occupy
the White House, and then there will
be another scramble for the spoils.
TILE LATEST.--We have news up to
3.30 o'clock yesterday. Senators were
making their fifteen minute speeches.
Henderson, (Rep.) from Missouri, was
speaking against impeachment. "This,"
adds the dispatch, "has discouraged
thefriends of impeachmentsomewhat."
m.A.n election for Burgess, Town
Council and other officers of the bor
ough of Chambersburg, was held fast
Monday. The result was a sweeping
triumph for the Republicans, who elec
ted their whole ticket by handsome
majorities. It was a clean sweep
throughout. This shows a healthy
condition of political affairs in the
7M - The municipal election of Lan
caster city took place on the Ist inst.
The Democratic candidate for Auditor

Republican gain of 117. The Republi

.The "Daily Legislative Record"
of the proccedingsof our Legislature is
more of a swindle now than ever. The
Legislature adjourned a month ago
and the Record is not yet completed.
Perhaps we will soon hoar of another
"waste paper" speculation by the ern
ployees about the State House. Some
of the most guilty of last year were
honored by the last session instead of
being punished. An honest Legisla
ture would ho a great curiosity.
TUE PUBLIO DEBT.—The statement
of the public debt on May 1, as com
pared with April 1, 1868, shows that
during the past mouth the debt bear
ing coin interest has increased $18,937,-
450. The debt bearing currency in
terest has decreased $1,390,700. The
matured debt not presented for pay
ment has decreased $21,131,100. The
debt bearing no interest has increased
$1,477,640. The total debt has de
creased $2,106,710. The amount of
coin in the Treasury has increased
$7,630,010 and the amount of currency
has increased $8,044,100, making a de
crease in the total debt, less cash in
the. Treasury, of $18,680,860.
TIM IMPEACHMENT.- On Friday,
Mtiy 1, Mr. Evarts, counsel for the
President, closed his four days argu

following resolution, which was intro
duced by Mr. Morrill, of Vermont
Ordered, That when the Senate ad
journ it adjourn until Monday at 12
o'clock ru., for tho purpose of delibera
ting on the rules for the Senate sitting
on the trial of the impeachment; and
that on Tuesday next following, at 12
o'clock in., the Senate shall proceed to
vote, without debate, on the several
articles of impeachment, - and each Sen
ator shall be• permitted to filo, within
two days after the vote is taken, his
written opinion, to ho printed with the
proceedings of the Senate.
Enlargement of the Canals,
The long contemplated enlargement
of the Canal to tidewater, which has
hitherto been delayed by want of har
mony among the several companies
owning the Canals, has now as will ap
pear by the following extract from the
Public Ledger been arranged :
"An arrangement of much importance to
the coal, iron and lumber interests of this
State, has been consummated between the
several canal lines on the Susquehatua river
and its branches, embracing the Wyoming
Canal, the West Branch and Susquehanna,
the Pennsylvania, and the Susquehanna and
Tidewater Canals. These several companies
together owning the whole system of canals
draining the groat interior of the State, and
connecting it with tidewater, have entered
into a contract which takes effect immediate
ly. By this contract they respectively bind
themselves to operate their canals as one line
on all through tonnage, to pro-rate all through
tolls, and to enlarge all of their canals by the
spring of 1871 to cis feet depth of water. It
is estimated by the parties interested that
the above arrangement will effect a reduction
of one half on the vast tonnage of anthracite
and bituminous coal, lumber, and iron which
annually seeks tidewater by these lines, and
will at once create an outlet for the bitumi
nous coal of Pennsylvanhi, which will enable
it to command the New York and Eastern
markets, thereby vastly extending the busi
ness and tonnage of the Susquehanna valley."
The main object of the enlargomont
is we presume to afford cheap trans
portation to the coal, lumber, iron oro,
limestone, sand, firo clay and other
heavy products of the interior of our
State, which will not bear the expenso
of railroad carriago, and which the
railroad companies are willing to bo
relieved from carrying. The head of
navigation will naturally be somewhere
in the limits of Huntingdon County as
the Canal and Railroad diverge at Pe
tersburg, and the object being to avoid
all the rail transportation possible, it
will hardly bo fixed below our Bor
ough, as that would throw the Broad
Top trade on the Pennsylvania Rail,
road, until it reached tho enlargement.
The room which will be required for
the transhipment of the various coals,
lumber, &c., will be considerable, but it
would appear to us, that the space be•
tween the Railroad and Canal, through
and above West Huntingdon, with
some little shifting of. the track and
other small expenditure is amply suf•
The importance of this mat
ter to our town can hardly be over es
timated, as it would necessarily lead to
the introduction of manufactures which
would work up the raw mater
ials thus concentrated hero, and this
leads us to suggest this point as well
adapted to the manufacture of Pig
Iron, as all the materials could be con
centrated hero, such as Anthracite coal-,
the Bituminous coals along the Penn
sylvania Railroad, and from Clearfield,
and from Broad Top—the Iron Ores
from Bedford, from Tussey Mountain,
and other points on the Broad Top
Road—from Williamsburg by Canal—
from Baker's Bank, by Pennsylvania
Railroad, from Barre°, and from any
other source, along the various rail
roads and on the Canal—Limestone
from the dam above town by fiat boat,
and Hearth Stone from Warrior Ridge
- only a couple of miles away.
How Andrew G, Curtin is Regarded
While the Republicans of Ohio aro
devoted to the claims of Ben. Wade as
a candidate for Vico President, they
are not unwilling to do justice to men
of distinguished ability from other
States who aro presented by their fel
low-citizeOs as candidates for the same
position. This is verified by an arti
cle in the Mansfield (0.) Herald of the
6th inst., from which wo make the fol
lowing extract :
"From Pennsylvania, ex-Gov. An
drew G. Curtin has been recommended
by the State convention, and a more
able, and talented• man could not be
presented by that Commonwealth. As
Governor of Pennsylvania during the
time of the entire rebellion, he was re
markably efficient; no State troops
were better eared for than Pennsylva
nia soldiers, and Gov. Curtin will al
ways be remembered as the "soldier's
friend," thoproudest title that could be
bestowed upon any ono. Gov. Curtin
will have many friends in the coming
Convention, and if an Eastern man is
to be selected, no one spoken of has
greater capacity for the position. After
honestold Ben. Wade, our choice would
be for Andrew G. Curtin, who would
secure the Keystone State to the Re
publican party by fifty thousand ma
jority, and who would strengthen the
ticket in every way."
In this connection we aro forcibly
reminded of the fact that while some
of Ben. Wade's professed friends in
Pennsylvania are publicly defaming
and secretly plotting to defeat Andrew
G. Curtin for the - Vice Presidency, Ben.
Wade's real friends in Ohio do not hes
itate to concede the fact that Curtin
is the only man who can carry the
Keystone State beyond the peradven
ture of a doubt. When it is freely ad
mitted that without Pennsylvania
Grant cannot be elected President,
this tact assumes a momentous iznpor
tanco.—Harristuirg State Guard.
THE TARrr.F.—The Committee of
Ways and Means of the U. S..llouse
of Representatives appointed a sub
committee some months ago to take
into consideration the revision of the
Tariff. As soon as the impeachment
trial is over the Committee is expected
to report, and the Tariff question will
bp brought to the immediate attention
of Congress. It is understood that the
report will be favorable to an increase
of duty on certain articles that require
protection. The subject is ono that in
terests ito people of Pennsylvania
especialiy, and they will bo glad to
hear that it is soon to receive that at
tention at tho hands of our legislators
which its importance demands.
THE STORM - KING.
Extraordinary Rail Storm in Missouri
Terrible Tornadoes in lowa and Illi
uoia—Destruction of Property and
Loss of Life,-Atmospheric
Phenomenon at Chicago,
On Saturday lust, the 2d inst., after
wo bad experienced some dreadful
spring weather in Pittsburgh and vi
cinity, the weather took a sudden
change, the sky becoming overcast
with dark, lowering clouds, and since
then there have been a succession of
rains and thunder shoukrs, covering a
period of five days, and which altbo'
not extraordinary in their character,
were certainly remarkable for their num
bor. There seemed to be unusual atmos
pheric combinations at work, because,
notwithstanding the numerous heavy
rains, some of which wore accompa
nied with vivid lightning, the tempe
rature still kept up; and, even after
the storms, it was observed that the
atmosphere seemed more sultry than
before. Yesterday was ushered in with
a bright sun, and the mercury bad fal
len somewhat, indicating a general
"clearing up," but in a few hours the
sky was again overcast, rain commen
ced falling, and the storm, or rather
series of storms, still continues. In
Western Pennsylvania, so far as we
aro at present advised, no damage bas
resulted, but on the other hand the
rains have brought vegetation forward
with encouraging rapidity. In the
West, and especially in Missouri, Illi
nois and lowa, groat damage has been
done, and the extraordinary commo
tions there may account for the unus
ual condition of the elements here, as
they correspond in regard to time.
EXTAORDINARY lIAIT, STORM IN MISSOURI
On Saturday evening a most extra
ordinary hail storm was experienced
in Southwest Missouri, at Arlington.
The storm came up from the South,
with a limited range, accompanied
with heavy thunder and vivid light
ning, and driven onward by a furious
wind. Amid torrents of rain the hail
came, of most portentous size, solid,
hard as wintry•ice, the stones ranging
in weight from two to ten ounces.—
They stormed down on the houses and
streets of the town with frightful vio
lenco and destructive effect. Not a
house escaped having glass shattered
Hail stones as largo as a man's fist,
amid myriads of smaller ones, rattled
down for the space of twenty minutes,
indenting boards, driving men, horses
and cattle to such shelter as could be
found, killing some of the smaller ani
mals which could find no screen from
the furious and fatal storm. The citi
zens of the town took refuge, in dwell
ings and stores, clustering in fright in
the very centers, away from windows,
which afforded no guard, against the
TORNADO AT MUSCATINE, lOWA
On Sunday the 3d inst., the' most
terrible tornado since 1344 visited
Muscatine and vicinity. The tornado
approached in the form of an inverted
funnel, and described almost a semi
circle around the city. Fences wore
prostrated, windows shattered, trees
uprooted, and in some instances houses
were blown away is pieces. The house
of Benj. F. Miller was blown to atoms,
but the family was fortunately absent
on a visit. A large frame church was
literally lifted from its foundation and
scattered to the winds. Some of the
books belonging to the congregation
were afterwards found several miles
off. A brick school house shared the
A FEARFUL SCENE
The tornado struck the house of Mr.
Lindley Hoopes, destroying house,
furniture, barn, cattle, and almost
everything he possessed. There were
in the house at time, Mr. Hoopes and
his family, and his son-in-law, Mr.
Bartlett, and his wifo. The tornado
was discovered a minute or two before
it struck the house, and the occupants
succeeded in reaching the cellar save
Mr. Bartlet and his wife. They were
is the act of going down stairs, when
they were suddenly dropped to the
ground amid a mass of ruins, with a
portion of the roof upon them. Mr.
Bartlett states that just previous to
falling he cast his oyes into the room
ho had occupied and saw the bed turn
ed upside down. He was Aug out of
the ruins severely bruised; but his
wife, strange to say, escaped with
scarcely any injury. Mr. Hoopes and
his family wore nearly buried in the
cellar, but the obstructions were soon
removed, and it was found that Mrs.
Hoopes, a little girl, and Wm. Hoopes
were slightly bruised, though other
wise the family wore uninjured.
Other buildings in the same neigh
borhood were injured and destroyed,
and thousands of fruit trees were bro
ken down. Hail stones fell as large
as hen eggs, and at one place an ox
was pelted to death by them. The
devastation caused by this tornado
extended about ton miles.
AT PEORIA-BOY KILLED
On Sunday a terrific thunder show
er burst upon Peoria, Illinois. A dis
charge of lighning struck the Germa
nia Fire Company's engine houso. A
boy named Charles Vogal, who stood
at the door, was struck on tho head,
knocked down and killed. His cap
was torn to shreds. His heart beat
[or ton minutes after ho was picked
FEARFUL TORNADO AT SUAND DAT-LOSS
OP LITE AND PROPERTY.
On Sunday evening the village of
Shanghai, Warren county, Illinois,
was visited by a most appalling storm
of wind, rain and hail, destroying
many houses, and making others deso
late, The storm was first observed ap
proaching in a cone-shaped cloud,
about a - quarter of a mile in diainotor,
and whirling round with groat vie
lence. Its powor was first discovered
in a pond near Mr. John Doggett's
house, two miles and a half west of
town. It literally sucked largo quan
tities of water out of the pond and up
into the air, almost malting the pond
entirely dry. ft went on, gathering
new strength, leveling fences, twisting
off tress, and swooping everything be
fore it. 'Toro were fifteen dwelling
houses totally destroyed. Many of
them were picked up by the whirl
wind, lifted into tbo air and carried
quite a distance, and then, seemingly
with demoniac fury, dashed to the
ground and shivered into a million
fragments, Seven other dwellings
were blown from their foundations. A
fine school house, and two churches—
the only ones in the village—wore
scattered in fragments over the prairie
for nearly half a mile.
AN AWFUL. SCENE IN CLIURCEI
The congregation of the Second Ad
vent Church, Rev. G. W. Hurd, was
at service when the storm came up.—
The windows began to shako, and
some ono called out from his seat,
"Mr. Hurd, a bad storm is coming up."
The minister answered, "Never mind
the storm ; there is a day coming when
there will be a storm compared with
which this will be nothing. It will be
through soon." Just then the hail
and wind commenced breaking in the
window lights, and in almost an in
stant the windows of the church, sash
and all, wore torn out.
The only two persons who suceeded
in getting out were George Vern and
Harrison Wixor, who were instantly
killed. The building reeled like a
drunken man, but none could get out.
Wives clung to their husbands, chil
dren to their parents, brothers and
sisters to each other, and despair was
depicted upon every countenance.—
Suddenly the crash came and with a
deafening sound mingled with the
shrieks of the pent up people, timbers,
scantling and all came down with a
sudden crash upon tho devoted heads
of the congregation, men, women, and
children. Some had skulls broken,
others arms, others received internal
injuries from which they can never re
cover. There aro several who did not
receive a scratch, but nearly all were
more or less injured.
A PROVIDENTIAL ESCAPE
Services were to have boon held at
the same hourin the Methodist church,
but owing to the non arrival of the
minister the services were postponed.
This chnrch was also entirely demol
PUENOMENON AT earcAao
On Tuesday last Chicago was envel
oped in such dense and sudden dark
ness as to cause dread and alarm in the
minds of the citizens of that wicked
place. Thrice, in rapid succession,
was the city plunged in thisdeep dark
ness ; but the cloud lifted finally in a
few moments, and disappeared as sud
denly as it came. There were doubt
less, more prayers said in those few
minutes than were ever uttered in
Chicago in the same space of time.
llrtsmN(•rok, May 9, 1808.
There aro no further significant de
volopuieuts in regard to impeachment.
The Democratic evening paper con
cedes that the President will be con
victed, but two or three Senators, who
have been looking over the ground,
are not yet sure of such a result. The
strong impeachment men of the flouso
aro, however, entirely confident of suc
cess. Largo numbers of Republican
Senators have been engaged to day in
looking over the law and facts, and a
majority of them aro deemed to be
thus engaged this morning. Mr. Ed
munds is writing a careful and elabor
ate opinion, about which there is more
than usual interest, as ho drew up the
tenure-of-office act, and had charge of
it at every stage in the Senate. There
is a good deal of quiet consultation
and canvassing going on this evening.
May 10.—The anxiety to learn the
situation of the impeachment question"
has pervaded all circles to-day. Little
has become known as to the views of
Senators upon any particular article,
nor has anything come to light to im
pair the confidence which the Repub
licans have felt for the last two days
in conviction. The Senate will open at
ten o'clock, and the first question for
settlement will be the manner in which
Senators shall declare their vote. If
afterwards debate follows on the main
question, it is believed that the result
can be correctly foresh - adowed by to
