The Murder of Dr. Burden.
Tho Now York World publishes the
details of a confession said to have
been made by Charles Jefferds to a
detective, proving that•he (Jefferds)
was the actual murderer of Dr. Bur
-dell in 1857. Jefferds was convicted
of the murder of Walton and Matthews
in 1860, but the sentence of death was
never carried into execution. Jefferds
was himself killed in Sing Sing a few
months since by a fellow-convict, now
awaiting trial for murder. The con
fession was made several years since,
and is now for the first time given to
the public.
X63-The Hon. Do Witt Clinton Son
ter will become Governor of Tennessee
by virtue of his office as President of
the Senate of that State, on the 25th
inst., the day on which Gov. Brown
low's resignation takes effect. Mr.
Senter is a young man, being only 35
years of ago. He was educated as a
lawyer, and is said to be a gentlenian
of marked ability and has had much
experience in public affairs, baying
been connected with either one or the
other branch of the Legislature, most
of the time since he became of age.
Ho was a stanch loyalist during the
war, and met with much rough treat

Pruyn "came to time" very
promptly on Saturday with his assur
ance that the Democratic party would
cheerfully sustain Gen. Grant. We
find, however, that his action is not
indorsed. "Mr. Pruyn," writes a Dem
ocratic editor, "was doubtless too san
guine and cOmplaisant, or at least a
little.. premature, in promising - General
GrAt the support of the Democratic
party, when he has not yet delivered
his Inaugural Address, nor shown his
hand in his appointments." -There is
,the rub ! Gen. Grant must understand
He may adopt any policy, however
wise and statesmanlike ; Democracy
will not assent until ho "shows his
hand in his appointments."
VElf•The Supreme Court of the Uni
ted States has decided that a contract
entered into before the passage of the
Legal Tender act, an'd made specially
payable in coin, is valid and can be en
forced. Such a decision would excite
no :special interest, did not the dis
patch announcing it state as part of
the opinion of the Court, as delivered
by the Chief-Justice, that "when the
kind of currency is not 'mentioned;
then legal tenders are lawful in such
connection." Thp would seem to he
the mere dictum of the Court, as the
point does not seem to be involved in
present case. But as a dictum it would
Indicate that in a case in which the
kind -.of currency was not expressly
mentioned in the contreet, even though
the contract were made prior to the
passage of tho Legal Teudor act, the
Court would sustain and enforce that
Pennsylvania in the Cabinet.
We learn from Washington, from
what we consider good authority, that
Pennsylvania will be represented in
Grant's Cabinet, but who the lucky
individual is, wo are not prepared to
say. That PennsyMinia is entitled
to a position in the Cabinet, no one
will deny, and we hope the informa
tion we have may be truo. Quito a
number of gentlemen aro named for
the position and all confident of suc
cess. 1Gov: Curtin is prominent and
his claims should not be overlooked, as
Colfax undoubtedly owes. his nomina
tion to him. Ed. McPherson and
Glenni W. Schofie.l4 aro talked of and
.urged by their friends, but as Grant
keeps his own council, and does not
give the friends of any gentleman the
least encouragement whatever, wo will
hp° to be content until Grant, in his
own good time, sees fit to tell us who
jib has selected to aid him to guide
thcs Ship of Stato.
Cuban Insurrection Gaining Ground.
Every batch of news from Cuba
grows more and more interesting. An
American gentleman in Cuba, who is
in a position to know the rebellion and
its prospects quite thoroughly, states
that the insurrection gains ground
rapidly. The patriots have organized
a Provisional Government, electing its
members by a popular vote. The su
preme command has been intrusted to
Gen. quesada, Cespedos being the civ
il bead, or Secretary of War. The
Provisional Government propose with
unanimity, general emancipation,equal
political rights for all colors,. suffrage
to be based on educational or property
qualification. The wealthier' classes
have all emancipated their slaves. No
Propositions from the Spaniards will
now be listened to; nothing short of
independence is desired; when that is
established 'the Cubans hope to obtain
the protection of the United States,
with a vlow of eventually becoming a
member of the American Union.
Many are desirous of annexation now,
but open discussion of that question
might now create dissensions.
The Suffrage Question.
The overwhelming rejection, by the
House of the Senate amendments
to the Constitutional Amendment con
cerning Suffrage, leaves that whole
question uncertain. The difference be
tween the plans of the two Houses is
marked. Tho Representatives merely
sought to guarantee suffrage from lim
itation on account of race, color, or
previous condition of slavery, thus:
"The right of any citizen of the United
States to vote shall not he denied or abridged
by the United States, or any State, by rea
son of race, or color, or previous condition of
slavery, of any citizen or class of citizens in
the United States."
The Senators extended the guaran
tee to office-holding as well as suffrage,
and made,it apply against educational,
property, nativity, or religious qualifi
cations, Its well as against any arising
out of the old slavery distinctions:
"No discrimination shall be made in the
United States among the citizens of the Uni
ted States in the exorcise of the elective fran
chise, or in the ri . ,olt, to hold office in any
State, on account of race, color, nativity, prop
erty, education or creed."
The Constitutional Amendment has
progressed one stage farther. • The
Senate proposition was taken up in
the louse about the Middle of Satur
day afternoon.' Everybody was tired
of talk, there was less than an hour's
debate. Gov. Boutwell then brought
in his motion making it allowable
within ton days of the adjournment, to
shspend all rules, so as to prevent, filli
busterinv, and it was of course carried
by the t 'Republican strength. Three
yea and nay votes wore had, and the
amendment was then carried by a
party vote of 140 to 83, in the follow
ing terms :
"The right of citizens of the United States
to yobs and hold office shall not be denied or
abridged by any. State on account of race or
color, nativity, creed, or previous condition of
This is much like Senator Wilson's
original proposition, except that the
word "education" is omitted from the
last clause, so as to leave the States
free to establish an educational quali
fication if they choose. The words
"nativity, property and creed," were
inserted - on Mr. Bingham's motion by
93 to 70, and this marks the difference
between the House and Senate. The
latter body seems likely to accept the
amendment, as it now stands, though
Senators west of the Rocky 11loun
tains will make a strong effort to strike
out the word "nativity." The most
important action of tbo House was
that on striking out the words "and
hold office."' ` ! rho change was moved
by Gen. Logan, who was defeated by
yeas 71, nays 97, An analysis of this
vote shows that the vote to strike ont
was made up of thirty-two Democrats
and thirty-nine Republicans, and the
vote against striking out entirely of
Republicans. The Republicans voting
to strike out were—Ashley, of NeVa
da. ; Benton, Bingham, Buckland,
Churchill, Coburn, Dockery, Eckley,
Ferry, Fields, Garfield, Halsey, Higby,
Hubbard, of West. Virginia; Hunter,
Judd, Ketcham, Lawrence, of Pen n'a.;
Logan, Marvin, Mcrcur, Miller, Moore,
Moorhead, Morrill, Myers, O'Neill,Pile,
Raum, 'Robertson, Schenck, Scofield,
Selye, Smith, Spalding, Sturkweather,

woolen produces a beautiful fabric,

The coal trade of Pennsylvania has
been ono of almost uninterrupted pros
perity. In 1830 the aggregate ship
ment of anthraciteccial from the Penn
sylvania mines to the seaboard was 104,-
734 tons. Since then the increase has
been gradual, and in 1868 reached the
enormous amount of 15,333,720 tong.

former ono. In 1834, 1838, 1857, 1861
and 1865 there was a slight falling off,
but each of these periods were excep
tional epochs in trade. The proposi
tion of increase has, as a general thing,
been very steady.
