Col. Mcrl P. Declicrt,
DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR
At DITOH CENRHAL.
Col. Robert Tortor Dochort, who is
the nomineo of the Democratic party
for tho ofiico of Auditor General of
Pennsylvania, ia a rcmtlunl of Philadel
phia and a member of (he bar in that
city. At tlio breaking out ol tho Re
bullion be was only eighteen years ol
ago, but yielding to his patriotic im
pulses, he enlisted as a private soldier
in tho Twenty-ninth Regiment of
Pennsylvania Volunteers. Before the
Regiment took the field, Col. John K.
M urphy,commanding,appoiDtcd young
Dechert to the post lion ot Scrgeant
Major on his statf. This position ho
filled with great credit until February,
18C2, when he was promoted to be
First Lieutenant of Co. C ot the tame
Regiment. His promotion was made
over all of the Second Lieutenants of
tbo Regiment by the selection of the
Colonel, and was considered to bo
merited by bid ability and attention to
duty. In this rank ho served with his
Regiment in tho campaign of Mujur
Gen. Banks in the Valley ol the Shen
andoah in Virginia, and ia the mem
oraulo retreat of that General. He also
served with his Company in the Army
of Virginia under JIujor General Popo,
including the battles of Cedar Moun
tain, Second Hull Run and Chantilly,
and subsequently at Antictam and
Chaneellornville. Immediately after
the battle of Antiotam, ho wasboloetcd
by Brigadier General George L. An
drews, now professor at West PoiHt,
to serve as his Aid-dc-Campand Assist
ant Adjutant General, and on that
office being transferred to the Depart
mom of the bouth, Lieutenant Dechert
performed the same duty on the staff:
of Brevet Major General Thomas II.
Kuger, now a Colonel in tho rogular
army, and prominently named fur the
position of Chief of the Signal Corps
to succeed tho late Brigadier General
Myers better known as ''Old Proba
bilities." At tho crcat Pennsylvania
Battle of Gettysburg, Lieutenant Dech
ert served as Assistant Adjutant Gen
eral of the t irst Division of the old
Twelfth Corps at Culp's Hill, and was
honorably mentioned forgallantsorvice
in the official report of that important
Immediately after that battle the
Western troops ol the Army of the
Potomao wero sent to tfio City of Now
York under the command of Gcnerul
Rugcr to enforco tho draft that had
been temporarily suspended by roaaon
of tho removal of tho troops from that
city for tho defence of Pennsylvania
n the Gettysburg campaign. .
The draft being successfully accom
plished, these troops wore returned to
tho Army of the Potomac oh tbo Rapid
an, in Virginia, and a few days after
wards, in consequenco of our repulse
at Uuckamauga, the 1 1th and 12th
Corps were transferred to tho Western
Army. No timo was last lit their
transportulioa, and disombarkingtrom
the ears at Nashvillo, Tcnn., they wero
marching to Chattanooga. Jn Decern
ber of tho year ISfi.l, tho Twenty.
ninth Regiment was the first in the
army to accept the offer of tho Gov
ernment to ro onliat for another three
years, and Lieutenant Dechert ton
eluded to rejoin his regiment for that
purpose, and ho was Immediately pro
moted to the Captaincy of his com
pany. The return of this regiment to
their homes, on availing themsolves of
tho veteran furlough of thirty days,
bos not been forgotten by the surviv
ors or their lriends. They were pub
lically received by tho ofllclul authori
ties of the City ot Philadelphia at Old
Independence Hall and at the Cooper
net rcshment buloon, and after recuper
ation and additional enlistments, tho
regiment was sent to tho Hospital
building at Chester, Pcnn'a., and then
was removod to tho scone of its former
labors at Chattanooga, Tuna.
For several monthsCaptain Dechert
was stationed at Philadelphia for the
purposo ofenlisttngaddilional recruits,
bnt he rejoined his regiment in the
Atlanta campaign, having been reliev
ed from recruiting duty at Pbiladcl
pbia at his own request,
Aftor the capture of Atlanta, ho
was again sclocted by his command
ing Goneral for important service.
Major General R. W. Slocum appointed
him tho Assistant Adjutant General of
the Twentieth Army Corps that
Corps being the result of tbo consoli
dation of the 1Kb and 12th Army
Corps which bad been shortly before
commanded by Major General Joe
When Mnjor General A. S. Willlam
was advanced to the command of this
corps, by reason of tbo promotion of
General Slocnm, he retained Captain
Dechert in the same position on the
During the eventful inarch of Major
Goneral W. T. Shorman "to the soa,"
bold his position, and at Kavannah,
Georgia, General Slocum again recog
nized tbo efficient service of Captain
Ueohert by appointing him Assistant
Adjutant General of the Army ol
Georgia on his staff, which position he
retained until aftor tbo surrender ot
General Joe Johnson at Raloigh, and
alter the Grand Roview of Sherman's
Army at Washington in Mar, JSCS.
Us was meanwhile promoted to be
Major of tha Twonty-ninth Roeiment.
and at the close of tho war he was
brevettcd by tha President of the
United States on tho recommendation
of Generals Slocum and Sherman lo
be Lieutonant Colonel "for gallant and
meritorious services during the war."
IB July, 18C5, be being less than
twonty-tbreo years of ago, ba returned
to bis home with bis comrades, aftor
an aoliva aorvics in the field of over
four years. Ho immediately enter-
d upon tha atodr of the law in
tho office, of his brother Henry M.
Dechert, Esq., a prominent member of
tho Philadelphia bar, and was admitted
to practice in November, 18CG. Tho
same year be was the eandidato of bis
party in tho Twenty-seventh Ward for
Select Council, and although Governor
Geary had a majority of upwards of
400, be was returned defeated by but
thirty-two votes. In this canvass he
was supported by many of tho
most prominent proporty owners of
tho Wai'd who were not members of
his own political parly. In 1869, on
the election of Hon. Fiirman Shoppard
to the office of District Attorney of
tho County of Philadelphia, Colonel
Dechert was appointed Assistant Dis
trict Attorney for three years, and waa
again appointed by tho same official

Whon Mr. Hugert was elected to the
samo office In 18T7, Col. Dochort de
clined a re-appointmont, preferring to
resume tho general practico of his pro
fussion to which lie has devoted bis
attention until called, without his own
solicitation, to accept the nomination
for Auditor General. During this
servico as a prosecuting officer, he was
intlcpcndent and fearless, and conduct
ed many important trials in which be
displayed abilities that showod his
eminent fitncBS for tho requirements of
While Col. Dechert bold the position
ol Assistant District Attorney, a va
cancy occurred in the First Senatorial
District, to which bo had previously
rotnored, by which the Senate of Penn
sylvania waa left politically a tie.
Both parties looked about them for
their strongest candidates, and Col
Dechert was, without any solicitation
on his part, unanimously made tho can
dulato of bis party, and after an active
campaign, at a special election, on Do
comber 20th, 1870, ho was elected Sen
ator by a majority of upwards of 1300,
although tho Republican candidate fur
Sheriff at the election in October pre
ceding had, in tho same district, re
ceived a majority of upwards of 1000,
Cul. Dechert' record during the two
years in the Senate was croditabloand
He was the author ot several im
portant inonsuros,of which tho "Crimi
nal Evidence" law is ono, by which
persons charged with certain minor
criminal offencoa are permitted to
testify on their own behalf.
Col. Dochort is an active member of
a number of societies, among which
are the Military Order of the Loyal
Legion, the Mivnnercbor Society, tho
Penn Clobb, the H istorical Socioty of
Pennsylvania, Hamilton Lodge, No,

In 1878 Col. Dechert accepted the
command of tho old Veteran Second
Regiment, better known to our read
ers as tbo "National Guards," formerly
oommantled by Gcnoral Potor Lyle.
This regiment has been brought under
his efficient management to a high
stato of discipline, and in tho recent
encampment at Fairmount Park it re
ceived the highest encomiums from
soldiers and citizens.
Tho office for which bo is a candi
da to is a most responsible ono, and be
will, no doubt, roceive a large indo
pendent vote by reason of his high
character, and bocauso it is often
thought tho Auditing officer of the
Commonwealth can best perform his
duties when he differs in politics from
thoso whoso accounts are to be audited,
THE TRAMP STILL LWQEIIS.
Tho worst result of tho crash which
proatratod all our leading industries in
1873, and inaugurated an era of unex
ampled depression which continued for
five years, was the wide spread ruin of
character whioh resulted Irom intorced
idleness and want.
it was had enough to see orcdit
swept away, to seo lurtunes disappear
aa anownaaes in tne sea, lo see thou
sands reduced from affluence to nov
elty, and our poorhousos and lunatic
asyiums mica with victims of hard
timos. But worso than this was the
filling of the land with tramps, roving
vagabonds, sinking lower and lower in
the moral scalo until thoy became
hardened criminals, until they wore
capanio or aciioeraleiy cnonolng a life
oi erimo ramer man one ol Honest in
It was supposed that the tramp
would disappear when tho wheels of
otisinoss began to rovolvo again with
their wanted force: that when work
became plenty, tho vagrants would go
into the shops and factories and all
their old pursuits, and that society
would do luliy restored to its normal
condition. But this was an illogical
conclusion. A life that has been
wrenched and trampled out of shape
cannot be restored like a piece of metal.
Thousands ot men who wero honest,
industrious and prosperous sovon years
ago, aro now duplorablo moral wrecks
and will nover voluntarily do a day's
worn curing ins balance ol their livos.
It is true tha tramp is not so numer
ous a person aa he was two years age,
but thoro aro still too many of bis
tribe, and many of tho most revoltinn-
orimcs ara his work. Wo can deplore
tho lorriblo misfortunes which mado
thoso men what thoy aro, tho ptnch of
poverty mat com pel lea them to take
to tho road, but society will not bo too
sentimental to protect itself. Many ot
the rjtates have already enacted tramn
laws. Some have setup tho whipping
post. All will be compelled lo employ
strong instrumentalities to suppress
this very dangorons nnisanco.
A a exchange says ! It may bo well
lo repeat a hint ofton made on tho
mannor of using sugar in cooking fruit.
One should know that sugar boiled
with acid, if It bo but thrco minutes,
will be convorlod into glucose, which
is the form ot sugar found in sweet
applos. One pound of sugar bas as
much swectoning power as two and
and one half pounds of glucose. In
other words, one pound of sugar stirred
into the fruit after it la cooked and
while yet warm, will make the fruit aa
weet aa two and one-half pounds add
ed while tbo trait is boiling. Save
your sugar by a littlechsmloal knowledge.
PRINCIPLES, NOT MEN.
PA., WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER C, 1880.
APPORTlOXMEflT OF 1880.
Tho matter of prime interest in re
lation to tbe tenth census ol tbo United
States, which is now about complcto,
is tbo probable apportionment thoro-
undor lor members of tbo 11 on so of
Representatives. A Hu work will de
volve upon tho CongrSn to be electod
in November. The apportionment
under tho eighth census was made
March 4th, 18li2, and Under tho ninth
consus, February 2d, 0872. Tho act
of apportionment involves tho deter
mination of tho number of members ot
the Houso of Representatives and the
ascertainment ol tbo quota of popula
lation lor each moniber. Tbo various
apportionments borotolore liavo been
as follows : ,'
, S3, auo
The population of the United Stales
in 1870 was 38, 925, 098, and tbo act ol
Fubiuary 2d, 1872, fixed tho number
of members of tho Houso at 292, and
the quota of 131,425 was obtained ol
course by making 202 the diviBor of
tho whole population. There was a
proviso, however, that when a new
Stuto was admitted into the Union the
Representatives assigned to it should
bo in addition lo the number 292, and
it was under this prov.so that on
Colorado's admission into tho Union
hor Representative brought tho mem
bership of the Houso up to the preseuu
ugures i'J6. lho body about largo
enough and there is little disposition
to increase it beyond tlnoe hundred.
It is safe lo say, indeed, that threo
hundred will bo the membership under
tho new act making an apportionment
for tho ten ycura from lt82 lo 1802;
and that number was contemplated in
the census report of 1870. Upon this
well-grounded supposition tho subjoin
ed estimate ot lho representation of
eucn stato in tuo Congresses ol the
noxt decade us compared with tho
present representation i tased. Our
tuble ombraccs tho complete official re
turns, as far as possible, and in other
cases trustworthy estimates it gives
tbo population of each statu in 18U
and 18S0 and the quota of population
tor each Representative is obtained by
dividing the wholo population in 1HK0,
which is 40,157,404, by 300. Tho
quota thus obtained is 1(3,853. To
ascertain tho number of Representa
tives for each Stato lho number of its
population is divided by this quota.

In dividing the population of each
Stato by tho quota of representation it

A CESAREAN OPERATION.
Till EXTRAORDINARY BUROICAL PIAT
WHICH SAVES TtlK LIVES OP A
MOTHIR AND HER BABE.
Wo clip lho following from tho Phil
adelphia Reeord ol the 23d :
An extraordinary surgical operation
was porformod yesterday in Ibis city
upon a Mis. Btirnull,a dwarf, who has
beon making a living for years by
traveling with shows throughout lho
country. She is forty-two inches in
height ana a years old. tier husband
is also a dwarf. About seven weeks
ago Mrs. Uurnoll, knowing that sho
was about to become a mother, called
upon several physicians. Investiga
tion developed the fact that, owing to
ber peculiar deformity, it would be
impossible for her to givo birth to a
child in the usual mannor.
At first it waa thought the best plan
to have tho woman submit to a cranio
logical oporation, by which the head
would be crushed and tho child ro
moved in piecos, but tho physicians
discovered that on account ol the for
mation of the pelvic bones this would
also bo impossible. Then the Cesarean
oporation was determined upon.
Kariy yostorday morning tho physi
cians, to lho numbor of nearly a dozen,
arrived at tbo residence, on Seventh
street, bolow Spruoe, where the unfor
tunate woman was slopping. She was
somowhat nervous, but retolnte and

median lino of the abdomen, and tho
abdominal walls were cut through.
The womb was removed, an Incision
mado in it to correspond with those in
tho abdominal walls, and the infant re
leased. After that the womb was ro-
slnred to its bed and closed, and the
other parts brought together. The
clothing and all articles in lho room
were subjected to a solution of carbolic
acid spray, according to Lystor's
method, during the operation.

THE EFFECT UPON BUSINESS
the fuvorlto argument against a
ohango of administration is the injury
that will Do done to the business Inter
ests of the country. To listen to the
speeches and to read lho articles upon
this subject it might be inferred that
the country was really in the koeping
of the Republican party, and would
go straightway to ruin if not looked
aftor tiy its candidates. Milton de
scribed an ecliso as "shedding disas
trous twilight on half the nations, and
irt'fA fear of change perplexing ir.on
archs ;" but an eclipse was nover half
such a bugaboo as the probablo dec
tion of General Hancock, if we aro to
judge from what we road in Republi
can papers. I hose who write and tell
each stuff must have a very low opin
ion of tho good s'enso ot the people of
the United States, lor they know very
well that the fact is the country gets
along aa well as it dues in spito of the
politicians, and not because of their
protecting caro. Two or throe very
plain propositions will disposo of lho
pretence that tho sncccss ot any party
is essential to our welfare:
First. Tho men who constitulo the
administration to day, with one or two
exceptions, never had ability enough
to manange their own busmoss in
such a way as to greatly distinguish
themsolves, and it Mr. Hayes never
became anything mure than a second
or third rale lawyer in a smull city
like Cincinnati it is absurd to suppose
that by making him President ho
could be forthwith mado capable of
controlling lho business interests of the
wholo country. Mr. hrarls was, ol
course, of a higher grade; but, after
all, he whs prelly accurately described
by the late Judgotmcr as "a more
setilcnco monger." Mr. Sherman has
shown fair bttainoss capacity in his
own sfl'uirs, but there aro fifty men on
1 bird street and twice liny on w all
street who are his superiors, and there
is not ono ot the rest of litem who
could get half lho salary in any pri
vate corporation he now receives. It
is a hackneyed quotation of the saying
ot Chancellor Uxenstiern : "Go, my
son, and soe with what little wisdom
the world is govorned." But tho
greatest lack ol wisdom is on the part
of the govorned when thoy come to
think they owo everything to their
rulers ; tor, certainly, it the men in of
fice have not succeeded in private life,
it is lolly to suppose that they are any
bettor capable to mitnago the affairs
of other people. If tbo country really
needed to bo taken care ot, it would be
in a bad way in such bands. But,
luckily, tho great American people
have it and themselves in tbeir own
koeping, and if thoy wish to change
their servants not their rulers they
need not and will not bo afraid to do it.
Second. If all our present prosperi
ty ia duo to tho Republican party,
how does it happen that in 1873, when
the panio occurred, and during the
long yoars of tho steady decline in
values thereafter, tbo Republican par
ty, having full control of all depart
ments ot the Government, did not ar
rest lho deprecation and ruin, and re
store confidence and prosperity f And
why was it tbat it was nol until ibe
Democratic parly bad acquired con
trol of lho House of Representatives
that there was a check to the full, and
not until it had secured the Senate the
ro-nelion set in? If wo wero to judgo
by the order of ovonts, wo might soy
lho Republican party wss responsible
for tho breakdown in 1873, and tho
Democrats entitled to the credit ol the
revival ot business which began to
show itscll in 1878, and fairly sot In
by 1879; but the truth is that this,
too, would be absurd. The advanco
in prices, which is sometimes mistaken
for prt sporily, wont on all over the
world till lai.i, and lho occlino was
equally universal till 1879, and lor
these general movements up and down
neither party Is responsible.
Third. It docs not follow, howevor,
that it is a nuttier of indifference to
business men whether ono party or
the other eels in. The mania for rail
way bsilding, stimulated by improved
land grants, bad much to do with tho
unnatural high prices of 1873 and the
completeness of lho collspso that ltd
lowed tho next yoar, and tho misgov-
eminent and plundering of lho South
orn Stales from 181)5 to 1876 delayed
tho restoration of prosperity In that
section. The Republican policy was
certainly fairly tested down thoro, and
il wo aro lo believe tho accounts given
by Republicans themsolves, it only led
to the robbery and massacre of the ne
groes. That policy was given up
lour years ago, and by common con
sent good order now prevails, the no-tfi-ocs
are well paid and well fed, and
whilo wo hear a great deal about the
wheat crop making resumption posti
bio. lho value of tho cotton exported
is almost cqnal to that of both wheat
and flour 1212,000,000 last year, as
agoinst about 1225,000,000 and it it
bad not been lor Kcpublican misrule
in the South, we might have bad "the
food limes" it year or two sooner,
orlunately, what baa been dond In
the South cannot bo undone, and there
is no great chance for mischief lelt.
Upon the whole, therefore, we no not
think it greatly mailers wbethor one
half dozen of men or anothorsit around
tho Cabinet table in Washington dur
ing tho next four years. So long as
prices keep going up, tho people will
think themsolves prosperous, and when
tho turn come, lour or fivo or ten
years hence, thoy will think that tho
world has como lo an end again ; but
hi'ther they are to he rich or poor,
successful or unfortunate, will depend
upon their own conduct. If they wish
to bo happy, they must be virtuous,
and that is all there is about it.
Reason is progressive, instinct sta
tionary. Five thousand years hare
added no improvement to tbo bive of
tbo bco, nor to the bouso ot tho beaver.
