Judge Edmunds, who has seemed te us
te be the most likely of all the candidates
te receive the Republican presidential
nomination, -when the friends of the
leading candidates should come te search
for a second choice, does net want te be
urged as a candidate, and is even said te
declare that he would net accept the
nomination if conferred upon him. Prob
ably few will believe him se devoid of
ambition as this, but he may be consid
ered te be honest in his desire net te enter
into a contest for the place, and it may
even be the fact that it has no attraction
for him. It is net an inviting office te an
indolent and unambitieus statesman ;
but a man who lias reached the dignity
of senator has certainly tee mucli fibre
in him and tee great love of fame te re
fuse te take the highest office in the pee
ple's gift. Senater Edmunds's coyness
may be only a piece of Yankee cunning
te make himself mere agreeable te the
chief candidates by getting out of their
way, in the expectation that when they
have destroyed one another they will be
ready te take him in a loving em
brace. But we de net thus suspect him. lie
is the most straightforward and inde
pendent of the Republican statesmen, and
would make a very respectable candi
date. He is a fierce partisan and his ac
tion in the electoral commission showed
him te be quite unscrupulous enough te
serve the party need in any emergency.
His nomination would raise a square is
sue before the country as te the right
eousness of that verdict ; and this is an
issue which the Democratic party has
reason te welcome. It will come up
whoever is the Republican candidate,
but, with one of the derided eight as the
Republican candidate, it would be the
unavoidable issue of the canvass. "While
Judge Edmunds therefore is an honest
man, he would net be likely te be strong
er as a candidate than Third Term Grant
or Mulligan Blaine. Whoever the Re
publican candidate may be he will have
tee heavy a lead te carry te succeed if the
Democratic party is reasonably prudent
in its nomination.
The exhibition of division and of per
sonal ambition which is se strikingly
made by the Republican politician, in
pressing their favorite candidates at
Chicago, should net be lest upon our
delegates te Cincinnati. Ne one in the
whole world supposes that Cameren,
Conkling or Legan are pressing Grant's
nomination lecause it is best for their
party or their country ; but everybody re
cognizes the fact that theyaie urging it
because it is best for themselves. They
aim tesecure their own supremacy. Blaine
and his friends are equally ardent in
their own interest. Such self-seeking is
infamous and ought te disgust the people.
Edmunds would get en the ether extreme
in declining te let his name be used.
Everybody agrees in the abstract truth
of the declaration that the presidency is
an office neither te be sought nor declin
ed, but it seems almost impossible for
possible candidates for it te walk and
talk and act in an honest, straight-forward
way when the bee lias once began
te buzz anywhere in the neighborhood of
Among our candidates Mr. Tilden is
particularly objectionable in his deport
ment as a presidential candidate. There
is a total lack of sincerity, frankness and
self-abnegation about his attitude. It is
generally understood that he intends te
get the nomination if he can, and te dis
pose of it if he can't. He has never
publicly said this or anything else that
could be relied upon as indicating his
purpose ; but it is in the air that he in
tends te control the situation. In our
opinion the situation should be controlled
by the best judgment of the Democratic
masses, and any effort te interfere with
its free exercise should be disceunte
There are certain ether candi
dates who have started bureaus,
through which they propose te instruct
the people as te their duty, and te make
it plain that this duty is te nominate
them. This is sheer impudence. If a
man has net merit enough te be recog
nized without setting up a brass band te
blew his music, he is net the man we
want. Senater Bayard has behaved in
an exemplary way. Fer geed reasons we
doubt whether he would be the strong
est candidate we could nominate, but
we can hardly forbear throwing up our
hat for him, se great- is our admiration
for his frank, honest and manly charac
ter, as demonstrated in every act of his
life and especially in this crucial test,
when he is prominently before the eyes
of the people as a candidate for their
chief magistracy, which he stands ready
te accept but in no way te demean him
self te get.
"We recommend our candidates te
abolish their bureaus, dismiss their
trumpeters, withdraw their noisy horns,
and let the people take them if they want
them and leave them if they don't. We
object te any pressure of candidates for
themselves. They are all big enough te be
seen, we hope, though the biggest of
them are net the noisiest or the most
violent in their gesticulation. We knew
what we need in a candidate ; and we
knew that we de net need, nor intend te
nominate, a man te serve his ambition,
but te promote our own welfare.
We de net object te a candidate's
friends saying what they have te say in
his favor. Discussion is the read te
truth ; and the ventilation of individual
sentiment is the proper way te reach the
public judgment. A highly esteemed
correspondent sends us an elaborate and
lengthy declaration of his reasons for
supporting Judge Field, which we will
publish te-morrow with pleasure in defer
ence te him, although the reasons de net
convince us of the necessity for taking a
judge of the supreme court te head a
partisan contest. Politics and the bench
should be absolutely divorced.
Our Den is making a very remarkable
exhibition. We hardly knew whether te.
be proud of him. We are very sure
we cannot be proud both of him and his
opponents. He treats them as his slaves.
He conducts himself like an emperor.
" The state, it is me." It is with this
air that the chairman of the national Re
publican committee refuses te permit the
committee te instruct him as te hew he
shall discharge his duty as chairman
He holds the power of the committee and
the party in his hand, he claims, te use
as he thinks best te promote his
individual designs. He exhibits the
morals of the ordinary politician, who
never hesitates te abuse, in Irs own in
terest, any power that may be in his
hand. But te this common unscrupu unscrupu
leusness Cameren adds a very uncommon
obstinacy and boldness in persevering in
holding his position against any odds.
He may be slain, but he will net surren
der. That his opponents will be se weak
as te permit him in this case te de what
they have the power te prevent him
doing is scarcely credible; but our Den
shows himself te have all the character
istics becoming in a first class prince in
a first class empire, and if his man Grant
should pull through and the people ever
let him get held of the country, we may
be sure that the Pennsylvania represent,
ative of the new nobility will be a credit
te the order.
But really if Mr. Donald Cameren was
net a senator and a man of established
consequence, it would be very easy te
write him down a feel in undertaking te
claim te himself the unrestricted exer
cise of the power of the national commit
tee. Under the circumstances, however,
it is net safe te say just 'what sort of a
fellow he is te de such a foolhardy thing.
He could net de it in a Democratic com
mittee and convention we knew without
getting his head broken and his nose put
out of joint, but there is no telling hew
much kicking these Republican politi
cians will take from the nobility.

of this sent for and had a talk with them,

Cel.McClure'8 view of the situation at
Chicago : " Blaine has the largest army
with the worst generals that ever entered
a political battle. Considering the ability
and desperation of the Grant men and the
blundering and confusion of the opposition,
I would say te-night that the nomination
of Grant is probable, but the nomination
of Blaine is hardly possible, and that Sher
man is net within sight of success."
The distressing news is flashed ever the
wires from Chicago that the vice presiden

ing te Mrs. Jacobi's statement, which is
confirmed by the landlord, when she an
nounced her name he replied : " We have
decided net te take any Hebrews this
year ; we felt that they injured us last
year." Lackmier said though Mrs. Jacobi
was net a Hebrew she "would be an en
tering wedge in St. Mark's new policy
that would net leave it whole a week, and
that te admit a member of the Jewish
family at the start would hardly be a fair

delegates signed a pretest against Grant.
In the afternoon twenty-nine members of

the unit rule. In the evening when the
national committee assembled, the Hen.
Geerge F. Hear was selected for temporary
chairman of the convention. Senater Cam Cam
eeon, the chairman, refused te receive au
anti-unit rule resolution, or te "entertain
an appeal from his decision. A scene of
intense excitement followed, after which
the committee adjourned without taking
further action, until neon te-day.
The manner in which Mr. Cameren pre
sided ever the deliberations of the com

Yerk Herald, has convinced most of the
members that he is utterly unfit for the
responsible duty of calling the convention

cated questions which arc likely te aiise

bled his words se that his voice was hard
ly audible in the small room that the ses

was apparent that the slightest confu

and precipitate the convention into inextri

sullen. Several of the members openly
declared that he was either a feel or a

The Imperialist s are confident. They
say thht their opponents concede 315 votes
for Grant without enforcing the unit rule.
This leaves them only C4 votes short of a
a majority. If delegates arc allowed their
individual preferences they say that Grant
will receive seven votes from Ohie and six
from Vermont. This would leave only 51
votes te capture. With the enforcement
of the unit rule they claim 411 votes en

essary. Everybody concedes the success
of the Imperialists if the convention suf
fers itself te be gagged by the unit rule.

votes without the unit rule. This would

ItKUTAL. l'KIZK FIGHT.
Twe Allegheny County Jfugilists in the King.
One of the most brutal and desperate
prize fights was fought near MeKeespert
at daylight yesterday. The fight was wit
nessed by ever 1,000 persons. The match
was arranged about a week age and came
about in this way :
Weiskertcher, a noted sporting man of
Sharpsburg, offered te match an unknown
te fight Jack Fleet, of Braddock, an Eng
lish pugilist, for $500 a side. The parties
met aud signed articles te fight at catch
weights, according te the rules of the
Londen prize ring, for $500 a side. Fleet
stands 5 feet 8 inches, and weighed 144
pounds. The unknown stands 5 feet 7
inches, and weighed 140 pounds, and only
had one eye. At daylight a ring was
pitched. Fleet was attended by two local
pugilists, while the unknown was attend
ed by his brother and his backer. The pu
gilists presented a great contrast. Fleet
appeared te be about 50 years of ace. while
the unknown was about 18. The lighting
was desperate. The unknown gained
first bleed in the the second round and
first knock-down in the fourth. In the
sixth round Fleet was terribly punished
and fought down in his corner. Round
after round was fought, Fleet being no
match for his youthful opponent, while the
unknown fought like a Trojan. At the end
of one hour the fight was still, going en.
Fleet continued te come up te get slaugh
tered. In the thirtieth round Fleet was
whipped, but cried te be allowed te fight

and evey round ended with Fleet being
At last the crowd begged his seconds te
take him away. Time being allowed for
the sixty-seventh round, Fleet, who was
blind, groggy and nearly exhausted,
faited away aud the unknown was declared
the winner. Beth pugilists were terribly
punished. The fight lasted two hours and
ten minutes. It was the most disgusting
fight that ever took place. The unknown's
name is Teinby.

from the church, followed closely by a few
of his friends. The circumstance which
led te this action have been the subject of
a great deal of public notoriety, arising
out of disagreements between the pastor
and some of the leading members of his
fleck, and some weeks since culminated in
a disgraceful riot in the church.

war of 1812. Mr. Steinman is, we believe,
the only survivor of the company. Its
services were net then accepted, but a year
afterward it again volunteered and march
ed te Elkton. The Lancaster Istelli-
cexcek of Saturday, May 15, 1813. records
that : " On Thursday last the infantry
company commanded by Capt. Humes,
and the Rifle Cerps commanded by Capt.
Shippen, marched from this borough for
Elkton, Maryland, having volunteered
their services te assist in repelling the at
tacks of our barbarous enemy and the foul
disturber of the human family." The
Lancaster Journal of Thursday, May 20,
1813, thus records the event :
'On Thursday last the Lancaster Phalanx
commanded by Captain Humes, and the
Lancaster Yagers (iu the absence of Cap
tain Shippen), commanded by Lieutenant
Dell, started for Elkton. They consisted
of nearly one hundred men and made a
very handsome appearance. They were
escorted te Mr. Witmer's bridge by the
committee of safety, joined with the cor
poration of the borough of Lancastir, who
en arriving at the bridge opened their
ranks, let the volunteers pass through
and gave twice three cheers. A few
miles below Strasburg they were joined by
the Pequea Bangers, commanded by Cap
tain Jehn Slayinaker, jr., who also have
volunteered their services at Elkton.
'The journey of the volunteers te Elkton
was rugged and wet. but they bere it well.
The fine bullock which Mr. Benjamin
Kauffman, of Maner township, geneieusly
made them a present, was marched along,

" The Phalanx, the Lancaster Yagers
and the Pequea llaugeis, arc all quartered
in a very convenient house close te Elkton.
Their intention is te stay about three
weeks at all events ; when, if no danger
appears, they will return, but if necessity
should require it, they will stay longer."

IVie Commander in Chief:
Sin : During a long period of time where
in ether nations the countries of our

sciences under the scourge of ambitious
aud profligate princes have been the vic
tims of destructive wars, our faveured
country, by a judicious policy has been
sustained in an almost undisturbed enjoy
ment of happy peace. But in this singu
lar age of revolutions the convulsed state
of the world at length threatens te involve
our peaceful regions in the general vertax,
and the hostile encroachment en our sov
ereignty by nations arrogantly presuming
power and unmindful of right, as well as
past events, yet tee recent te have been
forgotten, has rendered it necessary that
the republic be placed into an attitude te
support its dignity and maintain its inde
pendence. Te contribute te this end the "Lancaster
Phalanx," commanded by Capt. James
Humes, under the impulse that led their
ancestors of glorious memory into an ardu
ous ami then almost hopeless contest
have this day unanimously resolved en a
tender of their service te their country.
The undersigned having been appointed
a committee for the purpose, hereby in the
name and en behalf el the corps with plea
sure tender their service te the govern
ment as part of the quota of militia te be
detached Irem this commonwealth and as
such are prepared te march completely
armed aud equip'd at the required neti-'c.
Felicitating the commander in chief en
the patriotic aideur that pervades our
country at this eventfull crisis we have the
honor te be.
Yours excellency's most ebt.

he drove en a bank at one side of the read,

falling under the wagon in such a manner
that the seat rested en his threat, holding

Mr. J. R. Wilsen, merchant at Spring
Garden, Salisbury township, met with a
rather serious accident at Gap, en Friday
last. lie was unloading calves from a
top market wagon, when the horse hr
came frightened and unmanageable, up
setting the wagon and throwing Mr. Wil
son underneath it, bruising him consider
ably and breaking his cellar bone. He has
been suffering considerably ever since, and
his escape from instant death was almost
miraculous, as the entire top of the wagon
was demolished, and the horse almost suc
ceeded in dragging the whole wieck down
an embankment en the railroad track ; but
for the timely assistance of Mr. Frank
Kurtz, who caught him just in time, or
most likely horse and man might have
been killed. The horse wascut and bruised

Items of Interest in the lloreiigh.
Last April two years age, Mrs. Elizabeth
Jewsen, a negress, aged then about 48, of
Springvillc, concluded te enlarge her busi
ness, which is that of a bone and iron
dealer. Te carry it en successfully a horse
and wagon were necessary, but her capital
being limited she appealed te Mr. Jacob E.
Loraw, of this place, for assistance, which
he gave her in the shape of an eighteen
dollar horse. Fer security Elizabeth gave
a mortgage en a property in Springville,
which she qualified before a justice as
hers. AH was apparently right, and Mr.
L. in looking ever some papers recently
noticed his claim, and upon inquiry found
that she had removed te the Welsh moun
tains and that the property belonged te
her brother. Sunday was quarterly
meeting at the A. M. E. church
at Springville, and she, her hus
band and several ethers encamped
at the Cove, north of the borough limits,
having in their possession two teams
laden with their wares, which they intend
ed te sell at Columbia. They were at
Springville en Sunday well filled with
whisky, and aroused one of the female
denizens of said place, through whom
Elizabeth's whereabouts were made
known. Accordingly, Officer Donaghy
arrived with a warrant, and brought her
before Justice Ricker. At first she failed te
recall anything connected with the affair,
didn't even knew Loraw, but with the
'Squire's assistance her memory bright
ened, and she produced a paper which she
said was a deed for the property. It was
an unpaid lumber bill from a Marietta
firm. She gave her note for thirty days
with geed security, and was released.
They left te-day for Columbia.
On Sunday night Winfield Gress, efnea
the above-named encampment, had
several chickens stolen. He accosted the

and expressed much surprise that he
would accuse them of the theft.
