ted for Supreme Court Judge on the
ticket with Asa Packer is an average
Cambria County lawyer. Ho served
one or more sessions in the Legisla
ture, but did not distinguish himself
more than any other of our county
lawyers would do in the same place.
We think that the Democracy could
have 'nominated an abler man, but as
he was put up only to bo knocked
down, it makes little odds.
.• gerMany good and honest Demo
crats in Philadelphia express indigna
tion at the ticket which has been put
•up for their support in that city, and
they openly avow that if a change is
not made they will bolt. Many good
,Republicans express the same dissatis
faction with the workings of the "ring"
'that is identified with their party. It
•is too bad that the politicians forget
the interests of their party and use
their influence to nominate bad men
for office against the wishes of the hon
. of their respective parties.

course cannot long exist. The people
Will find a way to be beard, and the
sooner the "ring". acquiesces to their
Ivishes the better.-- -
flerThe New York World (Demo
cratic) is right in admitting that the
Democratic Convention of this State
which nominated Packer paid a com
pliment to the fifteenth amendment in
passing the second resolution- in their
platform. It says the resolution "con
cedes a great deal to the friends of the
amendment—more than is necessary,
and more perhaps than is quite judi
clone." The resolution in question
wants the proposed amendment re
pealed, and then commit it to; the peo
ple at the polls for acceptance or re
jection. In regard to the amendment
the World further says :
-.-" The Democracy of Pennsylvania
have unnecessarily conceded- that the
fifteenth' amendment is fairly before
the States for their ratification or re
jection, and that three ; fourths ,of the
whole number can make it a part of
the Constitution. This may, perhaps
be true; .but why should the Demo
cratic party confess and declare it?
It at least admits, of, question, andlhe
friends, of State rights should reserve
the benefit of the doubt. Let them re
peal legislative ratifications wherever
they can; but avoid all gratuitous ac
knowledgments. If it be,trup, as the
Pennsylvania platform concedes, that
the proposition comes clothed with
such authority that, the States must
act upon it,, and that their annealed
ratifications are binding, then, as soon
as three-fourths of the States have rat
ified it, the fifteenth amendment is a
part of the Constitution, and the ques
tion of negro suffrage is closed. The
Pennsylvania Democracy have virtu
ally bound themselves to take this
view of the qUestion, if, before they
meet in convention again, the fifteenth
amendment shall have been ratified by
three-fourths of the States. This part
of their, platform might have been
more skillfully constructed."
' PErThe'llarrishurg Telegraph gives
the following inside view of the man
ner in which Judge Packer obtained
his nomination : "The fact that Pack
er had placed "one hundred thousand
dollars" at the command of his friends,
for the purpose of procuring the nomi
nation, was openly proclaimed by the
friends of General Cass, Hancock and
McCandless, and not denied by those
,the financial affairs in charge.
The uninstructed were boldly approach
ed, and it is positively charged that
some delegates of influence received as
high as five thousand dollars for their
vote and influence. Sixty-seven votes
were needed to make the nomination,
and these financiers understood their
business so well that they procured
just that number without fail on see
and ballot. They wore determined
that no more should be spent than was
actually necessary, as they did their
work by the job."
rte,..Reports from New Orleans of
frauds in the Government service have
become chronic. Frauds the Cus
tom House, frauds in the Sub Trees.

frauds among the wino dealers, frauds
among the distillers, frauds among the
Internal Revenue Collectois, frauds in
the cotton tax, have been again and

quite ready to believe that the honest
collection of any dues to the; Govern
ment has been, in the main, the excep
tion rather that the rule in New Or
leans. We have to-day the antiounco
naent, 'quite in keeping with all the
rest, that the frauds in the Income re
turns have been found so flagrant as
to compel the taking of an entirely, new
assessment. These New Orlettbs re
ports aro bad; but after all, aro we

any more honestly returned anywhere
throughout the country than in Now
va'''The election of Asa Packer is a
foregone conclusion," says a Democra
tic exchange, and such is the utteran ‘ ce
of Democrats throughout the State.
We know not why that party has so
much assurance. Has its members
forgotten its previous defeats ? Has it
no faith in the warnings of the people
that no party which affiliated with
traitors to our Government shall as.
same control of that Government after
it has been preserved ? The assurance
of the Democratic party of a certain
victory at the recurrence of each elec
tion is nothing but a piece of self-con
ceit or peacock vanity, and we would
advise that party to look at its foot
and remember upon what ground they
have trod. The people will remember
the misdeeds of that party within the
past ten years, even if its leaders don't.
rogt..We don't like the idea of mak
ing a Governor out of one whose chief
distinction is the ownership of Twenty
Millions of Dollars. Mr. Packer is a
citizen of respectable abilities and good
character; yet there is no one acquain
ted with him who can honestly say
that, if the net result of his past exer
tions bad been $20,000 instead of $20,-
000,000, ho would now be a candidate
for Governor of Pennsylvania. He is
nominated because of his great wealth,
and with an expectation that he will
devote a part of it to greasing the
wheels of the Democratic machine.
CORRUPT LEalswimoN.—Until a ma
jorty of honest men, men able to re,
sist the influences of corrupt men, can
be elected to represent the people of
Pennsylvania, honest legislation can
not be expected. It is no. longer an
honor to be sent to Harrisburg as a
member of the Legislature, and never
will be , until the political gamblers and
political thieves hanging around the
Senate • and - House every winter are
item Now is the time to subseribo fur
Democratic State Cotive,ntion.
The Democratic State Convention
met in-tbe Hall of the House of Rep
resentatives at Harrisburg on Wed.
nesday morning last, and was called
to order by Hon. Wm. A. Wallace,
Chairman of the Democratic State
After reading the names of delegates
Hon. William Hopkins, of Washing
ton, was elected temporary Chairman.
Hon. Chas. H. Buckalow was elected
permanent Chairman, and on taking
the chair delivered a lengthy address.
The following is the platform which
was unanimously adopted :
The' Democracy of Pennsylvania, in con-.
vention met, do unanimously declare
Fist. That the Federal Government is lim
ited td the grants contained in the Federal
Constitution; that the exercise of doubtful
constitutional powers is dangerous to the sta•
bility of the,Government and to the safety ,of
the people; and the Democratic party will
never consent that the State of Pennsylvania
shall surrender her great right of local self
&cond. That the attempted ratification of
the proposed fifteenth amendment to - the Fed
erid Constitution by the Radical members of
the last Legislature, and their refusal to sub
mit the same to a vote of the people, was a
deliberate, breach of their official,duty, and
an outrage Upon every citizen of the State ;
and the resolution making such ratification
should be promptly repealed, and the amend
ment submitted to the people, at the polls, for
acceptance or rejection.
Third. That the Democratic party of Penn,-
sylvanin is opposed to conferring upon the
negro the right to vote, and we do empliati
ically deny that there is any right or power
in Congress or elsewhere to impose negro
suffrage up:in the people of this State in op
position to their will.
Fourth. That reform in the administration
of the Federal and State governments in the
management of their financial affairs is ,im
Fifth. That the movements now being
made for the amelioration of the laboring man
have our most cordial co-operation. '
Sixth. That the legislation of the late Re
publican Congress outside of the Constitution;
the disregard of the majority therein of the
will of the people and the sanctity of the
ballot:box, in the exclusion from their seats
of Representatives clearly elected; the estab•
lishment of military government in Stntes in
the Union, and the overthrow of all civil gov
ernment therein, are acts of tyranny and
usurpation that tend directly to the destruc
tion of all republican government, and the
creation of the worst forma of despotism.
Seventh. That our soldiers and sailors who
carried the flag of our country to victory
must be gratefully remembered, and all.guar
antees given in their favor most faithfully
carried into execution.
Eighth. Equal rights and protection fur
naturalized and native-born citizens at home
and abroad; the assertion of American n?
tionality, which shall command the respect
of foreign Powers, and furnish an examp:o of
encouragenient• to people struggling for na
tional integrity, constitutional liberty, and
Ninth. That the present internal revenue
and taxing system of the General Govern.
ment is grossly unjust, and means ought to
be at once adopted to cause a modification
• Nominations were then received for
Governor. On the first ballot Asa
Packer received 59 votes, George W.
Cass 48, W. S. Hancock 21, and Wm.
McCandless' 5. The second ballot re
sulted as follows : Packer 08, Cass 47,
Cyrus L. Pershing, of Johnstown,
wag put in nomination for Supremo
Del.. When A. T. Stewart wait ap
pointed Secretary of the Treasury, ho
was confronted by an old law Which
forbid any importer from acting in.that
capacity, and 'the wisdom of the.'enact
meat was generally acknowledged.—
Does not the principle which disquali
fied him disqualify Asa Tacker from
sitting in solemn judgment upon the
railway legislation of Pennsylvania?
:Can' he be expected to act fairly, dis
interestedly, and justly on the railway
enactments which form a large and, in
some respects, the most important,
portion of legislation, when his own
individual interests hang trembling in
the balance, and when his veto or his
signature to a proposed bill may make
hiin richer by putting a Million of dol
lars more into his private purse? This
possibility is by no moans remote, and
Asa Packer could scarcely serve thro'
a three years' term As Governor:with
out having the responsibility repeat.
edly thrust upon him of deciding whe
ther be should prefer the promotion of
his individual interests or those of his
gam. Asa Packer, a smart Connecti
cut boy of old-fashioned Yankee stock,
left his native State when 17'years old,
with some $lO in money and clothing
of about equal value, and .brought up
in Susquehanna county, this State,
where he apprenticed himself to learn
the trade of carpenter and joiner,
which he followed for . some years
thereafter; marrying in due 'season,
'and buying a tract of wild land, which
he proceeded to clear and till. At
length ho pulled up stakes and struck
for Mauch Chunk, the heart of the Le
high Coal Region, whence ho ran a
coal-boat to Philadelphia, then started
a store, and soon engaged extensively
in buying coal lands, building rail
roads, &c., &0., whereby he grew rap
idly and enormously rich. Ile is now
worth at least Twenty Millions.
VW - The Joh nstow n Tribune, publish
ed at the home of Cyrus L. Pershing ;
the Democratic nominee for Supreme
Judge, says of him :
The nominee for Supremo Judge,
the Hon. Cyrus L. Pershing, is our
neighbor and friend, and we take pleas
ure in saying of him that he is a Chris.
tian gentleman. But he has been an
active Democrat all his days, and dur
ing the late war acted zealously with
his party in opposition to the Admin
istration of Abraham Lincoln. Ho
has never been on the bench of a Coun
ty Court, and is consequently entirely
wanting in judicial experience. His
public reputation is based upon his
political services to his party and not
at all upon his legal attainments.

Terrible Railroad Disaster.
MIDDLETOWN, N. Y.; July 15.—A
frightful disaster occurred on the Erie
Railrotid about midnight at Mast Hope,
on the Delaware Division. The night
express - train from New York which
left there at 6:30
„ o'clock, made the
ustiai tiMii = going' west until 12 M.,
when the disaster occurred at Mast
Hope. It would overhaul. a freight
train, also going west, which; accord
ing to telegraphic instruction, should
have run on a siding, to permit the
express .to,pass without stoppage.
— .TI 'e . 6eight train-switched off in the
regular manner, but from some care
lessness or, i fatality, did not move far
enough tip the siding to entirely, clear
the track, and the tail of. the train.e()ll
- of one or two curs, remained
on the track when the express came
thundering • along. The train struck
the tail of the freight, and the engine
and baggage cars, express ear, smok
ing ear, one passenger car, and a sleep•
ing car were thrown off the track and
smashed out of all shape. The acci
dent 'occurred about thirty miles from
Carr's Rock. .
The splintered cars and fragments
of' timber came in contact with the.
scattered fire from the locomotive, and
a conflagration ensued, in which tim
bers, baggage, .and the wounded pas
sengers all IN:ent, to, feed the flames.
Seven cars were thus destroyed, arid
six passengers are known to have been
burned to death. Two of the passen
gers are from New York, and one of
them is supposed to be the Rev. Ben.

accents and perfectly collected tones,
he told us to get an axe to try to cut
an opening in the side of the car. We
searched around and obtained one
from a house by the roadside, but it
was so blunt that we could do nothing
with it. 'We worked and strove to
liberate the unfortunate gentleman,
who sat there sound in limb, watching
the approach of the hungry flames.—
Nearer and nearer they came, until his
hair began to crisp and burn and his
skin to crack. Then when we in like
manner found the heat unbearable, we
reluctantly retired, compelled to leave
this poor gentleman, with his eight
fellow-sufferers, to their terrible fate.
We moved off until all was over.—
Nine petions • were thus burned to
death, and nine others injured more or
Another passenger says : I heard

in the ruins calling for help and groan•

one or two were actually chopped out

their bodies consumed or injured.' J.

seventeen persons in the front end of

deaths were from burning."
