LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCER, MONDAY. JANUARY 19 1880.
OUB BACHELOR CONGBESSMAN.
Hen. A. Herr Smith Photographed by a Lady
"Olivia" writesfrem Washington a spicy
letter te the Philadelphia Times, in -which
she pays her respects te the bachelor mem
bers of Congress, skctcliing their genera1
characters from a fashionable standpoint.
Handsome Charlie O'Neill, of Philadel
phia, is described as a modern Den Quix
ote, who is endeavoring te carry by storm
the citadel of the hearts of all the maids,
matrons and widows of the capital. Ack
len, of Louisiana, who has been in as many
We scrapes as Den Juan and happily get
out of them all, is sketched as a lady killer
whose past misdeeds arc being "lived
down" by his present unexceptionable con
duct. Hen. Hiester Clymcr, of Berks,and Hen.
A. Herr Smith, of Lancaster, are thus
" Hiester Clymcr ishere.apparently cold,
hard and indestructible as Allegheny
granite, and he strikes these with whom
he is brought in contact by the same feel
ing awakened at the touch of rugged sub
limity. The grandeur of the mountain !
The solemnity el" the sea ! Who would
dare te laugh and jest in his presence ? The
writer has been informed by some of his
brother members that he has a remarkably
sweet and winning manner te the few
privileged te occupy the chambers of his
soul ; and we should remember the rough,
brown husk of the nut is no indication of
the kernel. High-toned and kingly
in maimer en the fleer, always the
right word in the right place. Fer
nearly if net quite a dozen years, for we
write from memory only, his stalwart form
has been a landmark in the Pennsylvania
delegation, or a sort of Democratic warf
against which the spray and foam of the
Republican ocean has madly dashed in
vain. In reputation, se far as women
aits concerned, his character is the reverse
of Congressman Acklcn ; but suppose he
had been contrived en a sugar plantation,
done up in a creele skin, forged as it were,
under the eyelids of the tropics? What
then '.' Shouldn't Pennsylvania get down
en her stony old knees and thank heaven
that her Congressmen are net made like
' As if te cerect the acidity of the delega
tion Congressmen Herr Smith is added en,
just as the last lump of sugar is put in te
perfect the coffee cup. Whilst having all the
virtues he is believed te have none of the
vices, and his moral character at the capi-
tal is always quoted Ne. 1 ; risks few ami
readily taken. Society knows little or
nothing about him, but the quantity,
small as it is, may be set down te his de
cided advantage. He has the reputation
of being rich, but there is little show or
oslcnt.itien. He is always in his scat,
always at work, apparently with nothing
Unit his constituents' interests at heart. It
would be better for our sex if it were other
wise, but no delicate-minded woman would
think of disturbing the serenity of his
soul, and he keeps se far away from the
ether kind that an accident never can
happen. Xe one doubts but at some
period of his life the ocean of sentiment in
his besom has been traversed by gulf
.streams of romance, and he, tee, like
Whittier. can sing : ' The saddest of all
it. might have been. ' Blessed be the
spiritual hand that touches the human
heart-strings only te awaken the divincst
melody, and thrice blessed is he who
knows hew te avoid these pits in the soul
whose black depths reflect bitterness, satire
and irony. Side by side in every great
mind the Cieater has ranged the awful
cauldrons of geed and evil. Congressman
Smith knows hew te thread the mazy way
with pleasure te himself and honor te all
Investigating Landraui's Death.
This afternoon Corener Mishler sum
moned a jury te inquire into the cause of
the death of L. Q. Landram, who was
found with his skull fractured in his black
smith shop, corner of Christian street and
Marien alley, and who died of his injuries,
as has heretofore been reported. Several
witnesses, including two sons of deceased,
were examined by the coroner, but no new
light was thrown upon the affair. The jury
visited and inspected the premises where
Landram was found wounded. The build
ing is a frame structure containing three
apartments a paint shop, blacksmith
shop and horse stable. The evidence was
te the effect that Landram had attended
:i party at the Schiller house ; instead of
going home he went te the stable above
discribed ; late at night his son James, who
went in search of him, found him at the
stable and asked him te go home ; he said
he intended te watch his horses that night,
and gave James some fifty dollars te take
home for safe keeping. The next morning
about 3 o'clock another son, William, went
te the stable and found both it and the
adjoining shops locked up from the inside.
He heard groans and the words " Oh my !
eh my !" from the inside of the building.
Breaking open the stable deer he found a
peel of bleed in one of the two stalls of the
stable and en looking through the or en
deer connecting the stable with the black
smith shop, he saw his father leaning upon
a trestle and nearly unconscious. Securing
a cab he had him removed te his home,
and the doctors, as has already been re
ported, found that his skull was fractured
en the upper part of the forehead. It was
and is generally believed that en entering
the stable he was kicked by a vicious
mare, but at intervals in his rambling talk
he spoke of having been hit with a billy,
and even named the party that had done
it. Whether he knew what he was talk
ing about is net known. The coroner's
inquest is net yet ended, but thus far no
evidence has been given te implicate any
one. Dr. Davis, his physician, says the
wound from which he died might have
been made by a kick from a horse.
Smith's Man Wins.
As will be seen by our telegraphic ad
vices, Congressman Smith has wen his
fight in securing the appointment of
Jeseph Samson, of this city, as census su
pervisor of the Second district, compris

The funeral of William F. Gardner, who
"died en Friday, took place yesterday after

Deathef an Old Citizen.
William Black, aged about 70 years, a
widelv known and respected citizen of
Little Britain township, died at his resi
dence, near Oak Hill, last night at 10
o'clock, ne was a bachelor and resided
in the lower end of the county all his life.
It will be remembered that Mr. Black's
house was entered by burglars several
years age, when a considerable sum of
money was earned off. The burglary created
considerable excitement and one of the
burglars was afterwards convicted and
sentenced te five years' imprisonment. Mr.
Black's funeral will take place en Wed
nesday and the interment will be made at
Dinner and Fex Chase.
On Thursday last an excellent dinner
was served by Mr. Charles Yetter, of
Moitenville, Chester county, te several of
his friends, among the number being Bris
bin Skiles, Jehn Bear, Pusey Miller, of
Sadsburyville, Jehn Miller, of Avendale,
and some ethers The repast was com
pleted about 1 o'clock, and at 2 o'clock a
fine specimen of a fox was let out, and a
splendid "bag hunt" ensued, in which
one hundred dogs took part. His lley-
nardship was holed about 4 o'clock, after
he had made a circuit of many miles, the
chase ending about one and a half miles
distant from the starting point.
Arretted ter Desertion.
A few days age Constable Badders ar
rested Geerge Storey, who was wanted in
West Chester, te answer a charge of deser
tion, at Jenkins's store, Little Britain
township. He had agreed te pay his wife
a weekly allowance and was then te go be
fore the court te give satisfaction. Instead
of doing this he skipped te Maryland, and
coming back te this county he was arrest
ed by Badders, who watched him for several
nights. He was taken te West Chester
and placed in jail.
