Fuom the newspaper accounts of the
proceedings of Congress, it appears there
are those who are ready and willing to
indemnify the citizens of the rebel States
fortheir losses during the war which they
forced upon the North. With what jus
tice any such claim can be proposed or
allowed, we are unable to see, nor do we
know how the government can ever hope
to pay these demands, because millions
upon millions of dollars would be requir
ed to do it. But is it not singular, that
such unwarrantable claims should for a
moment, engage the serious attention of
the members of Congress, when the loyal
citizens of the North cannot obtain in
demnityfor the loss of property which
the government expressly ordered its of
ficers to destroy by lire and otherwise,as a
military necessity. We know of no step
taken4r effort made to do justice in such
cases. and think that if Congress is so
very liberal to the South, we would like
them to be just to the North.
A Wife Beater
The meanest man we know is he who
will strike a woman—especially a wife.
Every husband when married has promis
ed to love, honor, cherish and protect his
wife. Imagine then, how mean and cow
ardly he must be that will strike or beat
her. Such a fellow should be ridden on a
rail and driven from town. Bat as this
cannot be done except in violation of law,
the only and best remedy is to avoid the
dirty wretch, have nothing to do with
him, cut him in every way, don't deal—
neither buy of nor sell to him, and in this
way punish him by ruining his business
mull he changes his character. If any
man knows of any one who beats his wife
he should make it known that lie may be
shunned by all decent people. Or if any
one knows a man who beats his mother,
and we are told there are such dastards,
let him be reputed. The public have a
right to know if such a wretch disgraces
our town. The mark of Cain must be
put upon him, and he must be avoided as
if he were a venomous serpent or a mad
dog. Shun him day and. night.
TUE eorruptionists are very adroitly
reporting that the proposition of the peo
ple to elect Mr. Coleman to the office of
State Treasurer, is a mere blind, really
intended to elect Mr. Mackey and nobody
else. Nothing is more untrue, and they
know it. Mr. Coleman stands before the
. people as their candidate. He will serve,
if elected,but he will not disgrace himself
and his friends by runniniiibitiiit and.huy

ature, with the public money. He is an
honest man, and, the corruptionists dis

The House of Representatives now has
244 members. By the new law, Congress,
under the next apportionthent, is to have
members. The census returns indi
cate that the population is about 35,000,-

This will give about 153,250 population to
a member. The New England States
will each lose one member, Massachusetts
losing two. New York will lose four,
Pennsylvania and Ohio three each. Of
the Southern States, Virginia, North
Carolina, Louisiana, and Kentucky will
lose one each, and Texas will gain one.
Of the Western States, Michigan, Min

gain one each, and Illinois and liii
souri two. New Jersey, it is thought,
and is the only State on the Atlantic
coast which will gain. Of the whole

ANOTLIER calamity has occurred at
Richmond, Va. A fire broke out in the
Spotswood Hotel, in that city, at two
o'clock on Sunday morning, the 25th inst.,
and caused its destruction, with the en
tire block. The housekeeper of the hotel
and six or seven boarders perished.in the
flames. Several other persons are mis
ing, and supposed to have also perished.
The total loss of property by the fire is es

great difficulty in obtaining water, owing
to it being frozen.
A Cool Burglar in a Bedroom with Two Cool
and. Rightful Occupants..
Charles Lines' residence, No, 27 Mason
street, was entered by a burglar about 2
o'cleck last Friday morning. The fellow
made so much noise that Mrs. Lines was
awakened. She roused her husband and
informed him that some one was in the
room. After listening a moment and
hearing no usual noise, he turned over
and lighted the gas to quiet his wife's
fears, and then settled himself for an
other snooze. Mrs.. Lines, feeling posi
tive that she had heard the footsteps of
some one in the room, crawled cautiously
down and peered over the foot-board.
There she saw the ..urglar crouched upon
hishands and knees. Unlike most - women,
she did not announce the discovery by a
series of little screams; but she crawled
back and whispered in her husband's ear
the unwelcome intelligence, "There is a
great big robber right down behind the
foot-board." Mr. Lines crawled down to
take a peep for himself; sure enough,there
the fellow was. doubled up into as small
a space as possible, anxiously waiting for
the light to be extinguished so that he
might continue his researches. Mr. Lines
seized him by the hair, and was on the
point of giving him a severe talking to and
then kicking him down stairs, when the
burglar presented a revolver, with his
compliments, and told him he could con
tinue to live provided he kept quiet and
behaved himself. Mr. Lines acquiesced,
and the followed ruffian hastily left the
premises.—San Francisco Alta.
Discovery of Masonic Emblems
The 'Newark (New :Jersey) Advertiser
Some interest has been created in Sus
sex county during the excavation for the
Midland Railroad, by the discovery of
some relics of former times in the form of
two silver Masonic badges, ornamented
with square and compass, moon and sun,
in accordance with the Masonic emblems
of the present day, which were found five
feet below the hard earth excavations.
How the badges ever got there is a miste
ry, as no human remains were connected
with them, and the soil is a compact slate.
Victor M. Drake, of the Newton "Her
ald," says that it is well known that Ma
sonic emblems were worn both by the pio
neers and Indians of the country as a
means of self-preservation against the in
cursions of Tories and robbers, who in
the early settlement of the country held
almost undisputed sway on both sides of
the State line. The fact is well establish
ed, th 4 as early as 177 G, Major 'Wood, of
Gosll4ll4.4tto.arna. -I.....comasnaand. - the
finisipltbattle, fought opposite the Lack
awaxeri, when being overpowered by the
Indians, and - taken prisoner, saved his
life by signaling Brandt wtih the grand
hailing Masonic sign of distress; and Ma
sonic badges were in general use at the
time, both in the Delaware and Susque
hanna valleys, as one of the measures for
protection against the bloody Indian in
cursions to which the frontier settlements
were at all times liable.
The protective policy so persistently ad
vocated by true Pennelvanians in the
halls of legislation is finding new adher
ents elsewhere than in the Keystone State.
Wise men in the West see very plainly
that to develop the mining interests of
their region it is necessary to fight Free
Trade, and this will be done by them in
the future with an effect that • will guar
antee beyond doubt the permanent sub
jection of the importers of New York,
who would ruin all other interests that
their own might prosper.
Senator Cameron—always found in the
right place upon every national question
—in a recent letter produces new proofs
in plain language of the soundness of the
principle of Protection. - He says :
"It seems marvelous to me that argil
-ment is necessary to show our people—
and especially the people of the West—
that protection is the only solid founda
tion on which to build up a permanenent
growth. One would imagine that self
interest would point to this truth, and
that the experience of older nations
would be conclusive only on the subject.
Our people have been supplied incessant
ly with arguments in favor of free trade
by emissaries of foreign manufacturers
and importers, while the Protectionists
of the country have been asleep to the
best interests of themselves and of the
Referring to the war now in progress
in the France, and the utter helplessness
of that empire in consequebce of follow
ing England's free trade advice, he re
"If my mind were yet open to contro
versy as to,the policy of free trade or
protection for our nation, I think events
now passing in Europe would decide the
question. for me. France, yielding to the
very advice which England is so lavish
of us, is a pitiable example of even com
parative free trade. Her resources melt
before the hostile encounter of a people
inferior in numbers, not braver, and
without the exalted military fame of the
French people. But her weakness bears
no comparison to the absolute prostra
tion of the British military power. The
exhibition of England's weakness is
amazing. She stands as a laughing stock
of the great powers of Europe. Free
trade has brought her down to the dust.—
She was unable to prevent the war now
raging—her interference was contemned
—and she is now powerless to even im
press the belligerent powers when she at
tempts to bring abont peace.
" prussiti and Germany, with her high
tariff—the Zollverin—seems capable of
coping with any fee that may assail her,
having just humbled to the dust the
proudest military power in Europe.
"To me this strange display is full of
warning to us and to all nations, and I
hope the lesson it teaches will not be lost
on the American people."
Mr. Cameron concludes by giving the
protectionists a rap over the knuckles for
their lack of zeal in the cause as compar
ed with that shown by free-traders, and
thinks,and correctly too, that if the form
er were one-tenth part as liberal, in up
holding the hands of those who champion
their cause, the whole issue would be
- ended in a year.
"We demand,"'our Senator says, "that
our labor shall be forced to compete with
that of America. They demand that
American labor shall compete with the
labor of the whole world."
TEE NEW-70BE T3133111TE
Through struggle and suffering, at the
of multiform agonies, bereavements, de
vastations, the American Idea embodied
in the preamble to our fathers' Declara
tion of Independence approaches its com
plete realization. The noble, inspiring
assertion that "all men are created equal,"
and endowed by their Creator with ina
lienable rights to life, liberty, and the pur
suit of happiness, is no longer a glittering
generality, a poet's fancy, a philosopher's
speculation, but the recognized base of
our political fabric. The benign Revolu
tion, which dates from the Boston Massa
cree of 1770, finds its logical completion,
just one century later, in the XVth
Amendment, which gives to the equal po
litical and civil rights of every man born
naturalized in our Republic the shield and
defense of the Federal Constitution. The
billows of Caste and Privilege may roar
and rage around that rock, and may
transiently seem. on. the point of washing
it away: but its foundations are deep-laid
and stead fast, and the breakers of Reac
tion and Slavery are hurled against and
dash their spray over it in vain.
We do not underrate the forces of Pre
judice and Aristocracy. We do not for
get that a very large minority of the
American People still hold in their inmost
hearts that Blacks have no rights which
- Whites are bound to respect. We fully
appreciate the desperation wherewith all
the warring elements of hatred to Repub
lican achievement will be combined and
hurled against the battlements of Repub
can ascendency in the Presidential Elec
tion-of 1872. We do not doubt that local
successes, faciliated by Republican feuds
and dissensions, will inspire the charging
host with a sanguine hope of victory,such
as nerved it to put forth its utmost
strength in the earlier stages of the con
tests of 1864 and 1868. Yet our faith is
clear and strong that the American Peo
ple still bless God that, on the red battle
fields of our late Civil War, the Union
was upheld and Slavery destroyed, and
will never consciously decide that the
precious blood thereon poured out was
lavished in vain.
The TRIBUIsTE believes in the prosecu
tion of the great struggle by legitimate
means to benificent ends. To St:.te Sov
ereignty, it opposes indissoluble National
Integrity; to Slavery for Blacks, Liberty
for all: to Proscription enfranchisement;
to Popular Ignorance, universal Educa
tion; to intensity and eternity of wrath
ful Hate, universal and invincible Good
Will. It would fain do its utmost to
hasten the glad. day when the South shall
vie with the North in exultation and
gratitude over the disappearance of the
last trace or taint of that spirit which im
pelled Man to exult in the ownership and
chattlehood of his fellow Man.
Profoundly do we realize that the con
test isnot yet ended—that Millions mourn
more or less publicly, the downfall of the
Slaveholders , Confederacy, and rear their
children to hate those by whose valor and
constancy its overthrow was achieved. If
we ever seem to differ essentially from
other Republicans, our conviction that
magnanimity is never weakness,that ven
geance is never politic, and that devils
are not cast out by Beelzebub, must serve
to explain alleged eccentricities whose
perfect vindication we leave to Time and
The TRIBUNE has been, is, and must
be, a zealous advocate of Protection to
Home Industry. Regarding habitual idle
ness as the gicatest foe to human progress,
the bane of human happiness, we seek to
win our countrymen in mass from the en
suing lures of SpeCulation, of Traffic, and
et always over-crenT %led rroressions,tb the
tranquil paths of Productive Industry.
We would gladly deplete our over-crowded
cities, where thousands vainly jostle and
crowd in misguided quest of "Something
to Do," to cover prairies and plains with
colonies absorbed in Agriculture,Mechan
ies and Manufactures, and constantly
projecting into the blank, void wilder
ness the homes and the works of civilized
Man. Holding the Protection of Home
Industry by discriminating duties on im
ported Wares and Fabrics essential to the
rapid, beneficent diffusion of Production
in all its phases and departments, and so
to the instruction of our people in all the
gainful arts of Peace, we urge our coun
trymen to adhere to and uphold that pol
icy, in undoubting faith that the true in
terest, not of a class or a section, but of
each section and every useful class, is
thereby subserved and promoted.
The TRIBUNE aims to be pre-eminent
ly a /Crews-paper. Its correspondents trav
erse every State, are present on every im
portant battle-field,-are early advised of
every notable Cabinet decision, observe
the proceedings of Congress, of Legisla
tures, and of Conventions, and report to
us by telegraph all that seems of general
interest. We have paid for one day's
momentous advices from Europe by Cable
far more than our entire receipts for the
issue in which those advices reached our
readers. If lavish outlay, unsleeping
vigilance, and unbounded faith in the lib
erality and discernment of the reading
public, will enable us to make a journal
which has no superior in the accuracy,
variety, and freshness of its contents,
the TRIBUNE shall be such a journal.
To Agriculture and the subservient arts
we have devoted, and shall persistently
devote, more means and space than any
of our rivals. We aim to make the
WEEKLY TRIBUNE such a paper 'as no
farmer can afford to do without, however
widely his politics may differ from ours.
Our reports of the Cattle, Horse, Produc
and General Markets are so full and ac
curate, our essays in elucidation of the
Farmers' Club and kindred gatherings,
are so interesting, that the poorest farmer
will find therein a mine of suggestion and
consul, of which, he cannot remain ingor
ant without positive and serious loss. We
sell the Wm - Ex - LT to Clubs for less than
its value in dwellings for waste-paper;
and, though its subscription is already
very large, we believe that a Half Mil
lion more farmers will take it whenever it
shall be commended to their attention.
We ask our friends everywhere to aid us
in so commending it.

"The magnitude of the operations of
the Knoxville Iron Company is conceived
of by only a few of our citizens. But

how much - their business adds to the
prosperity, not only of Knoxville, but of

The Messrs. Richards we re born in
Wales, where they resided until they had
reached the years of manhood. • They
are three brothers—David, Joseph and

iron men, having been engaged in the
business since childhood. They emigra
ted to this country while young men and
settled in the iron regions of Pennsylva

from whence they came to Knoxville.—
They thoroughly understood the mechan

owing to their practical experience that

In 1868, the Company was chartered
under the name of the Knoxville Iron
Company, tinder which name it still does
business. The incorporators are H. C.
Chamberlain, Joseph Richards, David
Richards, Thomas Lewis and Daniel
Thomas. The Company was organized
with Capt. Chamberlain as President,
Maj. W. B. Tuttle as Secretary and
Joseph Richards, General Manager.—
Major Tuttle is a native of Connecticut.
During the war, he served on the Staff of
General Sherman. and injoyed the con
fidence of his superior officers. He is a
thorough business man, and systema
tizes the work in his department, in a
thorough and satisfactory manner.

others less. The highest wages is paid
to the heaters, which reaches from $l6O

In the year 1868, the Company found
their operations somewhat circumscribed
for the want of a foundry and machine
shop, and they immediately set about to
supply the want. This department is in
charge of Mr. Thomas D. Lewis, who is
a first-class master mechanic.
The rolling-mill is a scene of activity at
all times, day and night. There we

As we have above stated, they employ
about 200 hands in their establishment
here and and iu their mines at Coal
Creek. Most of these are heads of fami

five persons, and the population support

1,000. These one thousand persons have
to buy their provisions from the grocer,
their clothing from the tailor, their shoes
from the shoemaker; &c., so that this es

the prosperity of every class of people in

Tne Citation to Stevens' Executors.
The Cougt re-assembled at 2.3- o'clock, P.
M., and Mr. Dickey resumed_ his argu
ment, which was characterized•, by much
personality. He said he would now pro
ceed to consider the character for honesty
of the two professional shysters who had
taken charge of this case. The one, Mr.
Landis, was steeped in venality and cor
ruption. He had been for many years
Solicitor to the Commissioners of Lan
'caster County, and in that connection had
caused. the County to lose thousands of
dollars in forfeited recognizances. So
corrupt had he become that he was hurl
ed from Power by the Legislature abol
ishing the office he had disgraced. The
charges which he here made he was sor
ry to make, but would be pleased at any
time to prove them if the gentlemen
deemed himself aggrieved, befole a jury
of twelve sworn men.
As for the other attorney, Mr. Price, he
never had the confidence of Mr. Stevens,
living, or any of his friends when dead.
He, too, had held a position in the State
Legislature, where, he had the reputation
of being among.purchasable - members, the
"cheapest of the cheap."
Judge Long stopped Mr. Dickey and
told him to be less personal, but Judge
Hayes said that Mr. Dickey had a right
to reply, he having been grossly assailed
by the other side.
Mr. Price remarked that when lie was a
member of the State Legislature it was
no usual thing to see Mr. Dickey in Har
risburg as a log-roller, for putting through
any corrupt job out of which money could
be made; and with the permission of the
Court be would reply to Mr. Dickey's per
sonalities, and show up his character for
honesty as illustrated in certain transac
tioni nearer home.
Mr. Dickey said be intended to put the
plaster just where it belonged. That
these men were steeped in corruption and
fraud, and it did not lie with them to as
sail the character of such men as Hon.
Anthony E. Roberts and Hon. Edward
McPherson. Without speaking of himself
the two other Executors would do justice
to the memory and estate of Mr. Stevens,
who well knew the jackal's who-Would-he
hunting him after his death; and so
one of these gentlemen had been seleeted
as his historian, and the others for the
settlement of his estate. It will l their
duty to erect a monument over his re
mains, upon one side of which would be
inscribed the epitaph written by his own
hands, and upon the other side would be
inscribed his name, and still higher up
would be placed an inscription which
would forever debar these two men from
visiting his grave—the inscription being
" Here lie the remains of an honest man."
The Court reserved its opinion, which
will be delivered at stature day.
