Hard to Please. Some people
won't be satisfied any way you can fix
it. Therefore, there are criticisms on
General Hancock for woaring bis full
uniform on inauguration da'. It was
a Stale occasion, and General Han
cock drosscd in keeping with it. It
scorns necessary to inform tho critics
that the full dross was a mark of re
spect to his now commanding officer,
the Commandor in-Chicf of the Army
and Navy. If General Hancock had
appeared in fatigue uniform that woulJ
have bred a foariul scandal.
"llow is tiui roa Won r When a
man swears by Almighty God to sup.
port the Constitution of the United
States, and that of the Commonwealth
of Pennsylvania, and then violato both,
what should bo done with him f We
notice by the Postofllce Department
exponsos that ei Governor Hartranft
has drawn $1,000 out of the United
State Treasury as Postmaster of Phil
adelphia, and Auditor Goneral Scbeli's
report shows that be drew 12,000 out
of the State Treasury as Major Genoral
of tho National Guard of Pennsylva
nia. As both the Fedoral and State
Constitutions tnako thoofliocs incom
patible, how docs the Evans Kcmble
plnndoror justify himself ?
Good. Hayes, jtist before be drew
Tildon'i last dollar of the salary, ap
pointed a Postmastor at Buffalo, N. Y.,
another at Albany, N. V., (both fat
offices) and a District Attorney for
southern Now York. All these men
were anti Conkling. Tbey failed of
confirmation. This goes to show that
the Senator bad more influence at head-
quartcri than had the man that drew
Tilden's salary, and who was in the
babit of affixing "President" to hia
name. A similar fate befell the Pills-
burgh appointments who were all anti
Camoron; and this was followed by
a similar fate by bis brother-in-law
(Matthews) from Ohio, whom he pro
posed to stuff on the Supreme Bench
Hayes' veto of the funding bill was Id
harmony with his advent Into office
fraud at both ends of the line.
Among tho distinguished gentlemen
who woro present at tho inauguration
was General W. S. Hancock, whose
visit was anticipated with much pleas
ure, and whoso presence was recog
nized with diittingiiinhcil consideration.
An eye wituumi of tbo aciinu in the
Senate chamber says :
Qen. Hancock wm tho Art! paraon of eonse

participating M heartily as any other. flsna

to salute bitn. Mr. Cookling quickly loft till

Mr. Voorbees and lon Ctmeron, und presently
nearly tbo ontiro tisnate bod clustered arouad
bim, tba galleries moinwliilt applauding. Mr.
l)avis, of West Virginia, as aoon m a ehnuoo of
fered, oeoorted 'Jenerel llanoook to a ssnl on tlie
ule it Iho left of tbo Vice-President's desk. To
this sofa presently eatne Mr. Wboeler with out
trotcbed bond! nnd tho cordiality of tho greeting
drew from tbo spectators itill furthor dewonstra
tion of good wili. tienaral llaneook wai inkling,
but perfectly serene, flenetors of both partial oon
tioued to orowd nround bim, and apparently to
rlo wilb each other in testifying tbeir respect aud
aitoeui. Mrs. Uerlleld, from the gallery nbore,
bent upon tbo eontro of ao mui-h bomago a curl
oul but kindly gaao. Shortly after General Fhil.
Sheridan entered from a aide door, and walking
orer took hia leat by Qen. Hebooek, and aa they
warmly ihaok each otber'a haoda tba applauss
rang out again.
Allerword was presented a scene
without a parallel in tbo history of this
country and on which it is to bo hoped
will novcr again be repoatod. W
allude to the (act that thoro was present
in tbo Senate chamber just previous lo
the inauguration, a President and Vice
President who bad not received a ma
jority cf the electoral voto and wore
about to vacate after rendering four
years of service as the outgrowing of
fraud. Then was presented a Presi
dent about to bo inaugurated who is
not tho choice ot tho people as express
ed at the ballot box, but who was elec
ted by the forms prescribed by the
Constitution in tbo faco of tho will of
tho people. The third feature in tho
group was the prcsonco of tbo man
Goneral Hancock who teat chosen by
the people as tbeir President, but who
under our lawB lacked tbo necessary
electoral votes to secure the prize, and
wub present to witness the induction
into ofiico of one who had received
moro than six thousand votes loss than
himself; but whoso demeanor was calm
and serene and without apparently a
shadow of bitterness at his failure to
roceivo tho highest honors which bis
countrymen intended to bestow. Hut
through it all stands out in bold relief
the character of the man who has fre
quently been tried und never found
wanting, and who wo believe is yet
destinod to occupy the first placo in the
gift of the American people.
Rather Technical. Tho Lancaster
Intelligencer, Bpeaking in regard to tho
motion to indefinitely postpone the res
olution to dischargo tho committee
from tho lurthor consideration of tho
bill to repeal tho Recorder's act of Phil
adelphia, npon which the lion. Willis
R. Bierly voted affirmatively, says :
"Wo understand from him that ho did
ho bocauso be believed tho bill uncon.
stitutional. He voted for the samo
reason against the bill consolidating tho
Tax Collector's and Receiver's offices ;
and he declares that he shall vote uni
formly against every bill ho knows 'to
bo unconstitutional and against every
steal.' That is right, of course No
one can say that a representative should
not follow bis own judgments in his
votes; and if they all do so and vote
honestly, tbov fulfil tho measure of
their duty to the best of their ability.
If tbey aro not as wiso as they should
be, they cannot help it. We can got
along vory well with the average wis
donuof the Legislature if it is fairly
and indepondontly exercised. We
question tbo soundnoss of Mr. Biurly'g
views on the questions stated, but it is
right that ho governs himself by bis
own lights, to whose guidance bis con
stitucnts have confided thoir interests.'
It looks to us at this distance from the
Capitol, as though tho member from
Lycoming was too Constitutional to
mingle with the ordinary legislator,

Levyino on Pabsenoers. A Nevada
sheriff bad an execution for (24,000
against tho Central Pacifitv Railroad
for taxes duo his county. He made
the judgment good by seizing two
trains belonging to the railroad com
pany, one loaded with passengers and
ono freight. The lawyers of the railroad
kept np a fusilado of telegrams from
San Francisco protesting against the
seizure, and informing bim that the
rolling stock of the company was mort
gaged and could not be attached, and
they referjcd him to sections of tbo
laws of tho State ; but ho replied that,
mortgago or no mortgage, he was go
ing to seize everything belonging to
tho company that came along, and
that bo would put up a notico of sale
of the attached property the follow
ing day. This brought tbo company
to terms, and they at onco paid the
whole amount of tbo judgment. That's
what may be called a "snap judgment,'

Only about six months ago Mr. Strabos,

Ho says :
Tho public Is untitled to an oxplana

port Oliver or Gun. Ileiiver for United
States Senator fur tho alleged reason
that lliey were maubino candidates.
They carried on their war bravely un
til they arrived at tho point where
lliey bad gained their victory, where
they had tho machine in their power,
when they could dictato who should
bo Senator, and whon they could namo
and compel tho election of whoever
they pleuaed to vote tor, and then fur-
rendered to the machine .' Why was IbiB
done? Were tho Puritanic leaders
bribed? At least tho public is entitled
to an explanation of this extraordinary
The surrender was complete und
without mitigation. Cameron demand
ed acollcague of inconspicuous abilities,
und who would do his bidding. John
I. Mitchell exactly filled tbo bill. Every
body know it. Uo comes from a sec
tion of tho Statu and people who deem
it "smart" to deceive anybody with
dissimulation, promises intended lo he
violated, or a lie, and bis career as a
politician had been one of insincerity.
His present trcachory was therefore to
bo lookeil for, and ought not to have
deceived Wolf, Stewart and their fol
lowors and in fact could not deceive
thorn. Tbey knew him too well. Then,
in tho namo of sense, why did they
yield to sueh u candidate f 15y doing
so they belied all tbeir prolessions
for an able and independent man who
would do credit to tho State Then
why stirrondcr ? Explain.
A Teuriui.e Extlosion anu Loss or

has been in uso nearly eighteen years,

apparent cause, it burst, literally level

body was terribly mutilated, bis en

the wrecked fenco, while one leg was
found fifty yards away from tho build-

Tbe negro laborers of Pittsylvania and

as the tobacco bolt of tbe State, and

Gali-bha Explains. Galusba A.
Grow uses the Harrisburg Telegraph,
lately so abusive of him, to inform his
recent followers that "at the confer
ence with Mr. Oliver, Senator Cameron
and Col. Quay, to which I was invited,
a few hours before it took placo, noth
ing was then said, or at any oilier
time, by either or any of them, about
Governor, and no assuranrts, plodgo or
promise of any kind, was mado by
by either, except that if a candidato
for Unitod States Senator was elected
by agreement of both divisions of the
Republicans in tho Legislature, that in
that caso such division and tho indi
viduals composing it, were to be ro
gardod and treated alike in all respects
as members of the Republican party.

It's "Crooked." Thoro is a fearful
gnashing of teeth among tbe machine
Republicans of this Slate over tho ap
pointment of Wayne MacVcagh to a
placo in Garfield's Cabinet. Ho has
always been opposed to the Camoron
ring and it looks as If the Independ
ents had got the belter of the Stal
warts. With MacVcagh in tho Cabi
net and Don. Camoron only in tbo Sen
ate, tbo enjoyment of patronage may
become a matter ol serious considera
tion for tho ring. And wo would not
be surprized if this family fight would
turn out something like a cot fight

Postmasters, etc., in tbo Kcystono
To Reiiain. Prcsidont Garfield has
quietly asked our English Minister,
James Russel Lowell, to stay where ho
is, and he will no doubt slay, to the
groat credit of the country, and the
equally great delight of tbe "literary
fellers" who have bnilded much on
Garfield's appreciation of gentlemen
and scholars in diplomatic posts ot
high distinction. The country will be
especially roliovod at the assurance
that we are not to bo rcprescntod at
tho Court of St. Jamos by Marshal
J ewell, who wanted tho place, nor such
a snob as Piorrepont, who had it, nor
such a clerical fraud as Stonghton, who
no doubt expected it.
A melancholy feature of the political situation
aa defined in the construction of UorAeld'o Cabi
net Is the decline of Massachusetts la political
importance. Almost for the first time sines the
formation of the national Government that an
cient Commonwealth haa no representation in the
cabinet. rrerrrfearg rafriol.
Why, there is nothing particularly
strange about that! President Gar
field Is a Baptist. Ho read tho history
of bis country, and is awaro how the
Massachusetts bigots treated Roger
Williams and his followers. If it was
right to banish and exile men one hun
dred years ago, why not apply the
samo rule now f The now President
has no faitb in Massachusetts statesmanship.

away, looked tjuito closo, for wo wero
at un olevation ol z,ami loot above it.
Tho enemy's principal laager was
about two thousand yards away. Tho
position secured was undoubtedly ono
of immense natural strength ; on tho
summit was a plateau, so that all the
troops not actually engaged in repell
ing assaults, could lie down perfectly
secure from tho firo below. For an
hour the greater part of the troops
rested, a portion, however, helping the
sailors, who had not, so far, been able
to get the Gatling gun up tbo hill. At
sunrise tho Boers wcro to be seen
moving in their lines, but it was not
until nearly an hour later that a party,
mounted, were seen strolling out to
ward the hill, upon which thoy evi
dently intended lo take a stand. As
they approached, our outlying pickets
fired upon them, and our presenco was
for tho first timo discovered.
was heard at the Dutch laager, and the
whole scene changed as il by magic.
In placo of a lew scattered figures,
Ihero appeared ou tho scene swarms
of men, rushing hither and thither ;
some rushed to their horses, and others
to their wagons, and the work of
yoking oxen and preparing for an in
stant retreat began at onco. When
the first panic abated il could be seen
some person in authority had taken
uommand ; a great number of Boers
begun to move forward with Iho evi
dent intention of attacking us. The
work ot preparing tor retreat, in cose
of necessity, still went on, and contin
ued until all tho wagons weru inspanned
and ready to move away ; some, in
deed, begun to withdrawatonco. At 7
and bullets whistled thickly
over tho
plateau. Tho men woro all perfectly
cool and confident. 1 du not think the
fiossibility of tbe position boing carried
ly storm occured to any one. From
7 to 11 the Boers, who were lying all
aronud the bill, maintained a constant
firo. Their shooting was wonderfully
accurate ; the stones, behind which our
men in the front lino wero lying, wero
hit by almost every shot. Opposed to
such shooting as this, there was no
need to impress upon tho mon to keep
well under cover; they only sbowod
themselves to take an occasional shot,
and accurate as was the enemy's shoot
ing up to 11 o'clock wo had but five
casualties. Commander Romilley was
dangorously wounded; bo wus stand
ing closo to Gon. Collcy. Twenty mon
of tbo regiment, under Lieut. Hamil
ton, held tho point which was most
threatened by tho Boers. Nothing
could exceod tbo steadiness of these
Highlanders ; they kept well undor
cover, and, although they tired but
seldom, thoy killed eight or ton of the
lloers who showed tbemselvos from
behind covor. So far our position up
pears perfectly safe. Tho Boors had
indeed, got
but wo had three days' provisions and
could hold out until ro enforcements
came up. Oiircasultios wcro, with tho
oxccption ot that ol Lommandor Kom
illey, few and unimportant and all wero
porloctly confident of tho result. From
11 to 1- the enemy s nro continued as
hot, but as harmless as beforo. Be
tween 12 and 1 it slackened, and it
soomcd as if tho Boers wore drawing
off. 'Ibis, however, was not tho case
The enemy had been, us was alter

a terrific firo suddenly broko forth from
the right lower slopes of tho hill, the
sido on which the tiring had all along
been the heaviest A tremenduousrush
wassimultaneously made by the enemy
Our advanced line was at onco nearly
all shot down or driven back upon our
main portion. I Ins position may be
dosenbed as an oblong basin on top ol
the hill ; it was about 200 yards long
by liny broad. Our whole loroo now
lined the rim uf tbe basin, nnd .
to rcpol mo assailants, l he lioers,
wilb shouts ol triumph, swarmed up
the side ot the bill, and made several
desporato 'attempts to carry tho post
tion with a rush ; each timo, however,
they wore driven back wilb the bayo
nets. Alter each charge, the firing,
which noarly ceased during tho melee,
broke out with renewed violenco, and
the air ahovo us seemed alive with
bullets. Tbo troops did tbeir duty well
and steadily, and, trying as was the
occasion, fought with great coolness,
encouraged by their officers, At last
the Boers, who had gathered near the
etlgo of tho slope, mado a tremendous
rush at a noint bevond that at which
they bad beforo boon attacking, and
where the number of defenders was
comparatively small : they burst
through tho defenders and poured in
over the edge, and our position was
lost. 1 ho main line of our defenders,
with thoir flank turned and taken in
tho reverse, mado a rush along tho
plateau to endeavor to form and rally.
but it was useless. With fierce shouts
and a storm of bullets
Thoro was a wild rush, with the
Boers close behind ; the roar of tho fir
ing, the whistling of the bullets and tho
shouts of the enemy mado up a din
which loomed infernal. All around
men wore falling. There was no re
sistance, no bait ; il was a fight for
life. At this moment I was knocked
down by the rush and trampled upon,
and wbon 1 came to my senses the
liners were nnng over me at the re
treating troops, who wcro moving down
the hill. Trying to rise 1 was taken
prisonor and led away. On tha hill 1
found the body of Gon. Cellcy, shot
through thf bead. After conversation
with tba Boer General I induced dim
lo grant me a pass to conio to our
cttmp, and bring out succor lor the
wounded, lliey woro lying thickly,
both on tho plateau and every whoro i

Tho London Standard, commenting
lcmarks : "This simple, but graphic
narrative at onco disposes of all roports
tolei;i'olhcd from New Castle and
Durban to tbo effect that tho loss at
Majella Hill was duo to tho failure of
ammunition of our troops. It is clear
that not only was thoro no failure
whatever, but tho great proportion of
our troops had never drawn trigger
till tbey found themselves engaged in
an almost hand-to hand conflict with
tho enemy.
An eftchango in alluding to this doc
ument says :
" The inaugural aud l oss of Genoral
Garfield is not burdensome in length,
or overweighty in manor. It has
literury merits which would insure it
a general roading at threo or four
times tho length. It opens with a
display ot patriotic pride, which is
rather an improvement on the fourth
ol July pattern ; dwells on tho import
ance of universal education ; and thon
assumes the form of a sturdy, orthodox
Republican speech. A striking leat-
nro of tbe address is tbe respect it pays
to tbe opiuiona of tho retiring Presi
dent, Hayes and Garfield might swap
speeches on the subject of universal
education, und noither one would havo
anything to tako back. lhcy are
ikowiso identical on the nnanciai
question. In a short paragraph Mr.
Uaraold takes radical Kepublican
ground on the currency, and clearly
indorses Hayes' last veto in the inter
ests of tho National Banks. It will
generally be understood that the rising
and setting sons wero consulted ou
this subject before the voto message
was sent to Congress. Garfield also
agrees with Hayes on the Mormon
question. Tbo Republican party has
been conducting a talking war against
the polygamists ever since its birth.
Mr. 11 ay os talked a great deal about it,
but he did not exhaust tho subject, and
Mr. Garfield assails it at the very out
set of his administration. Ho will
doubtless turn ovor the 'talkee-talk' to
his successor, four years honce, and
after the talking businoss keeps up for
filiecn or twenty years moro it will
begin to bo funny. In the matter of!
an isthmus canal, Mr. Garfield is very
brief, but Indicates a disposition to
stand by Amoricnn interests. Tho
fact that the matter was alluded to at
all in so brief a document is an indica
tion that foreigners are not lo bo al
lowed to dig through our bailiwick
without hearing some musio Irom the
American oagle. Tho President scorns
to think the Civil Servico will eland
improvement, and announces u pur
pose to call on Congress to help bim ia
revising it. Ho approaches the subject
somewhat gingerly. Ho knows that
reformation ot tho Civil Sorvico in
volves trouble with some thousands of
Republicans who aro now looking for

At half past ono o'clock we arrived

horu was very animated. Tho crowd
was immense and varied. SeveraPmcn
in tho company wondered whether tho
entire population of Washington was
colored, as tho man and brother pre
dominated largely. Soon wo wore in
the lino, and hero the sight beggars
description. The whole length of the
avonuo, from the Capitol grounds to
tbo Treasury Department, was one
vast, soothing turbulent sea of people.
It was with the utmost dilliculty that
tho procession could succeed in forcing
its way in good order. Un we swopt
in company front, whon on reaching
Fourteenth street we wore astonished
to hear some ono cry out above the
din and confusion, "Hurrah for Dello
tonto." looking up, Mr. Tom Hicks,
formerly of our town, was observed iu
tho ClUi story window of a largo build
ing, enthusiastically greeting bis 0110
time neighbors. At tbo Treasury De
partment, as wo turned toward the
Whito House, E C. Humes and Frank
Montgomery gave us a gcneroiu ap
plause, and further on Aaron Williams
rushed out to tell us bo was on dock.
Hero we passed tho grand stand, upon
