By request wc last w-k putlisliuil
llio iirococdings of tlio so-willed iiido
peiident PilwK-rolii- Convention, which
met nt Ciinvensvillo, on the. 7th, under
tlio cull of Air. "Henry Kcihb, Chair
man." This i the first apncai-unce of;
tlio disorganizing element thin year.
It st-cms to lc under tlio auspices of
the same gentlemen who lod it lust fall.
It met nt the amo place, and tnke
eoimsi-1 fi-om the name source. The
ontensible reason for disorganization in
1873 was fraud in our nominations and
our vicious system of inuking thein.
What are the reasons in 1874 for re
newing tho crusudo ajriiinst the Demo
cratic party ? What justification have
tliesn gentlemen for their action at
this time? Wo have no ticket in the
field, nor can wo have before tho mid
dle of September. It cannot thoreforo
he dissatisfaction with the ticket, nor
is it because of tho system. That has
been chunked, and a new one, fuir and
just, adopted. Besides ull who claim
to be Demounts have been invited by
the Chairmun of tho regular Demo
cratic Comity Committee to take part
in tho preliminary action of the party,'
and his hist call explicitly recognised
tlio right of those who wished to act
with the party i' the future., to join in
mid help correct tho evils coaiplaincd
of. Would it not have been wise and
prudent for these gentlemen to have
awaited the action of the regular nomi
nating convention? Or do the "inde
pendent" leaden fear tlio nomination
of particular candidates? Again, why
is it that a delegate to the State. Con
vention is named ut tho meeting indi
cated, if disorganization is not the lead
ing Iciituro with the leaders? We
suspect very much, from the actions
of the independent leaders, that they
are determined to form an alliance with
the Radical leaders, unless they are
allowed to dictate our nominations and
rule and direct the party in their own
individual interest. Is it wise for Dem
ocrats to aid iu disorganizing the party?
Would it not be better to assist in heal
ing dissensions than in committing
breaches, and be found hobnobbing
with tho common enemy ? Why not
spend our time and talents ill bringing
ulwiitliui-inony, and sec that first-class
men. are nominated to fill our county
ofllcofi ? Why not labor liko patriots
for victory, instead of fostering ambi
tion und personal spite? Jlon who
lmt oC, mid iuiiIjb "honesty" point,
should be careful of their consistency,
at least, if they have no love for the
Democratic party. Honest men should
practice ' w hat they preach. If they
are Democrats, let them act liko Demo
crats, anil thereby divest thonisolvcs
of tho churge of hypocrisy. .' . .
U NRlHTt'NATKLY TtUiB. Wo Call the
attention of onr readers particularly to
nil article copied from the New York
Sun, entitled, "the Administration and
the press.',' The recent purchase, by
tho corrupt Washington ring of all the
newspapers in that city, and the pur
chase of the Philadelphia Prr and the
Chronicle by the "addition, division and
silence" ring of that city, closes out
tho last newspaper thoro w hich has
heretofore feebly assailed corruption in
high places. Washington and Fhila
dclphiu are to-day, without a single
journal courageous enough to, assail
public robbers and expose tho rascals
who arc robbing the pcoplo of their
hard earnings. This is exceedingly
humiliating to us, but there is no use
iu trying to conceal the fact. Editors
iu our large cities are becoming nearly
us unstable anil corrupt as Attorney

Isjoters. ,
' Black I.noratitodii. Tho Nation
which for years has boon quoting
Grant as a wonderful specimen of the

gatiun of any kind boa fallen hoevily, it once

i Now we come to another ezocutive
function. Of the nine years smooths
war, moro than half hnvo boon tinder

' "Tno management of tho Troaaury ainoe tho

Tho time is not fur dintuut when the
Democrats of this (XXth) CongnMsinn-

Notwithstanding this rare opportunity
of sending a Democrat to Congress, wq
have not yet learned that wo have any
aspirants in this county for tho position,
although all the other counties, except
Elk, seem to bo prepared Air 'tho can

great unanimity the namo of L. A.

Personally, wo know all those gentle

JofTorsnnian measure honest nd com
petent and cither will be an Improve
ment ou tho Kepresciilalive, wo have
had for tho past twelve yearn. .. Neither
of them is as ignorant as Scofield, who
confessed that he was not Frenchman
enough to know what Credit Mobilier
meant, yet Oukos A mos and other liiuli
cal celebrities stated under oath that
ho bought tho stock as readily as " Eric,"
or "Luke Shore." Scofield Is a dema-
gogue of no slight pretensions, and it
behooves every Democrat to put forth
his best efforts to send a Democrat to
Washington, so that we may not be
misrepresented in the future.
Wo quote tho Philadelphia Preit, ono
of tho most anient and dovoted of the
lato Charles Sumner's friends : '

That is tho most sensible view upon
this subject that has emennted from
that source for a long time, and is the
true doctrine in relation to "civil rights."
HAnicAi, Hows. Leonard Myers
and A. C. Hanncr, radical members of
congress from Philadelphia, were
thrown into the same district by the
recent appointment, and both ran for
nomination. . U armor was declared the
nominee by tho convention, but Myers
announces himself as an independent
candidate, declaring that he won cheat
ed out of the nomination by false counts,
dishonest returns and corrupt delegates.
In fuct ho charges and proven that the
radical ring of that city flagrantly and
with impunity violate tho ballot box
and cheat tho voters. Tho fight waxes
warm, and tho prospect is that some
honest doiuocrat will 1)0 Mooted con

In Allegheny in the 22nd district,
tho prospects are that Hopkins, demo
crat, will be elected over salary -grabf
Negley, who has purchased a renomi

the nomination by radical ring robbers.

These notable bankrupts aro likely
to conic to grief. Some time ago, a
Si'iierul creditor of the firm applied to
10 Register in' Bankruptcy liir an
order to compel Jay Cooke t Co. to
appear bofora the register and muke
lull disclosure nt all minsters or proper
ty made by them, the conveyance of a
great amount of which, it is alleged,
was mado in violation of law. The
order wus duly made by tho Heglster,
and the bankrupts, with a formidable
array of legal advisers, appeared before
Heglster Miiiison and refused point
blank to bo sworn, or to answer .tint-
questions concerning the ooliVeyauues
ot property mude by them. This laet
was certified to the lion. John lariwal-
adcr, Judge of the Bankruptcy Court,
who, alter patiently hearing too argu
ments iu tho case, issued the ibllowuig
order: ,. ,.
- tin Register's certificate, this tiny
tiled. ., ; .
By tho Court Tho duty of a bank
rupt is to disclose whatever it may
concern any parties interested to know
concerning his debts, business or estate.
The iwhcdiiloa mpiinsl hy tho 11th and
4'M soetions ot the act ot Congress may
constitute a very insufticicut disclosure,
In this case, it' the bankrupts had filed
the proper exhibits of a lost examina
tion, or had asked the appointment of
a public mooting lor the punswe, or it
the trustee or committee of uroditom
had compiled full disclosure, it might,
perhaps, have been proper to rostriol
the proposed examiualiou to speuiul
written interrogatories. But, on this
point the expression of a positive opin
ion is not necessary. .
The Register's conclusion is approved
by the Court. But with reference to
his reasons the Court is of opinion that
tho same conclusion might have been
correctly reached independently of any
question of prospective application tor
a discharge.
The examination of the bankrupts
will proeoed without interference by
tho trustee or the committee of credit,
oi-h, who, however, will bo authorized
to participate therein no fur as may
promote or facilitate its proper purposes.
As this bunkmpt firm have creditors
residing in every Stato in the Union, it
may be in place to remark that thoso
creditors will be kept duly advised of
the result of this investigation, through
the medium of the Philadelphia Asso
ciated Press Letters. . .
Judge Codwaladcr sitting iu the
Court of bankruptcy on Wednesday lost,
ruled that ho would permit any credit
or iu bankruptcy who Itad given his
assent to any character of compromise
to withdraw that assent at any tiino
previous to the final examination of the
bankrupt. , . i
A genuine case of kidnapping has
taken place right here in our great city
of over 700,000 issiplo, that for the
audacity of the abduction, the secrecy
that enshrouds it, and the cool demand
for $20,000 to bo paid for the ransom
of the child, causes it to tidte rank with
a first class case of t'orsioun brigandage
under the Genoese denomination.
The stolen child is named Charley
Brewster Ross, his parents reside in
the upper end of the city and are mod-
orately wenlthv pcoplo. Between tour
anil five o'clock, of the afternoon of
July 1st their son aged 4 years, and
another child 0 years of age wero lifted
into n wniui unven oy i wo men ; alter
driving into the heart of tho citv the
elder chihl waa uiven some pennies to
purchase fire crackers for the two luds;
immediately alter his getting out of
the wagon for that purpose, it was
driven off nt Hill speed with Rons still
in it. 1 ho oliler child on making
known the fact of his being lost was
tuken to his home by a gentleman ; the
next day the station houses were
searched for the lost child without
avail, A few Havs thereafter n reward
of .'tlt0 was offered hy tho father of
the hoy to the person returning hi in to
No. 5 North Sixth Stroet.
A few days thereafter there appear
ed in tho advertising columns of the
I'UMie Jjfinrr the following: "Halt, w
fire ready to anirnnVrfs.'' - The same day
a note was mailed to Mr. Horn statinir
that the child was well and in careful
hands and that fbr the sum of Twenty
Ihnumnd dotlirl he would be returned.
To this the father of tho stolen child
replied through the Leilner. "Unit will
rome to term to the exteid of hit ability."
Hoping that tbo villains would again
respond through tire columns of the
Miier, a corps of detectives surround
ed the building, hut the kidnappers were
hot to be trapped so easily, fbr, after
Vainly laying in wait for them several
days, Mr. Hons received another note
written in the same hand, stating that
no other terms than those already de
manded would lie entertained,
Here the matter rests, and in the
meantime ovcry effort of detectives
rom tins city, Aow York and Jlaltl-
more is being made to effect thcnpturo
of the brigands and tho retnrn of the
child to his almost frantic pnretitH. Mr.
Ross was recently ono of our leading
wholesale merchants, known through
out the country ns ftosn; Shott Co.,
which lulled a short lime ago lor a
large amount. There are not a few
who believo that tho child was stolen
by ono of the creditors of tho firm in
order to make up by this mentis tho
amount lust by the fiiiluro of the firm,
of which Mr. Ross was -fho senior
' , , in uK rnopiTs.

The iMiwer of tho nuwspaiier press,

and corruption what water is to tiro. It
has at length become in those United
States about tbo only seouriiy for life,

beeomo the rule instead of the excoi

God and man is a mockery which af

originally supsod that the Executive
might tsa restrained by the power to
impeach reserved to the representa

the two combine for the most shame
ful raids upou the public money (It Is
hunlly necessary to recall the salary
emb). and Conirrons has complacently
witnessed the liasest kind of personal
corruption In tho President, altornat-
inif with flatrrant usurpations, not only
without resort to impeachment but
without a murmur of dissent.
We need not enumerate tbe multi
tudinoiis offences of the present Exocu
tive, which, notwithstanding their ad-
uiltted enormity, have provoked no re
buke from Coiiirnitwi. Even- intelligent
reader will recall Louisiana and the
long list of pure deviltries practised in
the South, not to mention Son Domin
go, Babeuck, Richardson, Williams,
Delano and Shepherd. Our fathers in
dulged a fatuous notion that the fre
quent recurrence of )opular elections
would serve to check excesses and,
purge of corruption; but experience

What security, then, have we left ?
None, absolutely none worth a thought,

for this reason, because it is the lost

baled the editor of tho Sun to Wash

fact that Now York had a Judge who
remembered his oath and regarded not
a thief.
To be rid of such hindrances the new-
gag low of Frelinghuyseu and Poland
was passed and siirned, and not with
standing Senator Carpenter's denial

of kidnapping editors and dragging
them under the jurisdiction of tho ju

the famous ease of Chandler against

speaks with bated breath. Forney,
