MR. HAYES lias withdrawn the nom
ination of Secretary McCrary to the
office of Judge of the Circuit Court of
the United States for the Bth District.
AFTER all, it apjw-ars that Blaine's
substitute did* not cost hint anything. j
He was afterwards reimbursed by the
city of Augusta for all the fellow cost
him. Say nothing more about that
chap, Mr. Blaine.
TIIE walk just completed by Wes
ton shows wonderful endurance as well
as inuschto traveled about one
hundred ..mile!? a day for six days,
which is probably as much, if not
more, than any good, sound, active
horse could accomplish, in that time.
IT is charged that there is a deficit
in the accounts of the public printer
ut Washington of 81,0'21,346.86. A
pamphlet making the charge in detail,
it is said, has been placed before the
Printing committee, and if from a re
sponsible source should receive prompt
ANOTHER jtersonal difficulty, and
this time with our Don. Is it possible '
for Conkling to get along smoothly
with any one ? Bad manners, aggra
vated by a bail temper, are always ;
hard to boar, but Donald should not
have turned bis back upon his impe
rious friend. That was too bad.
WHEN Conkling rose in the Senate
ou Friday night la"t to ranke a speech,
all the reporters in the gallery, num- !
bering about forty, rose and retired,
and remaiued out during bis sjicech.
< >n its conclusion Senator Eatou rose,
when they returned immediately in a
body, making the slight upon the im
perious Conkling very marked, if not
TIIF. negro exodus has subsided,
nnd further contributions to the "Emi
grant Aid Society" will not lc requir
ed. The deluded blanks who were led
to Kansas, under promises of free
farms, stocked anil prepared for their
occujiancy, may starve or steal for a
livelihood, without causing any emo
tion of shame to the heartless wretches
who induced thetn to leave their homes
in the South.
"A 1.1. that the Democrats set out to
accomplish is accomplished in their
new Army and Judicial Expenses
hills," says Mr. Conkling. That is so,
and it is right that it is so. No doubt
Mr. Conkling and his stalwart party
hegin to realize the blunder they made
in forcing the issue of military and Ex
endive supervision at the elections of the
people. But they made it and must
stand to the record. They voluntarily
walked into the hole and there is no
THE selection of Mr. James A. Mc-
Clain, of Boggs, and Mr. Cyrus Brum
gard, of Miles, by the Democratic
County Convention, as Representative
delegates to the State Convention, will
be cordially endorsed by the Democ
racy of Centre county. Aside from
the fact that their election was a
splendid vindication of the integrity
of the Democratic organization of the
county, they are both active and
worthy young Democrat* entitled to
the respect and confidence of every
member of tho party. These feelings
were strongly indicated by the deci
sive vote that each receiver! in the
Convention. They are not instructed
to support any one for the office of
Htatc Treasurer, hut the people they
will represent in the Harrishurg Con
vention can safely and confidently rely
upon one thing: Their action in that
Convention will be dictated liy an
honest purpose to serve the best in
terests of the great Democratic otgan
ization of Pennsylvania.
Tho Curtin-Yooum Oontost.
It wiw generally HUJ>|M)MHI and be- I
licved tliut the re|Hirt and conclusioUß
of the above contested election ease
would have been reached before thin
time, lint this lin.* not occurred, und
in oilier to answer the many inquiries ;
made concerning it, we have conclud
ed to give our readers the information
we could gather in reference to it. It
has been said by some that on account
of the testimony taken in the case bc
iug in so bad a shape, through the
bungling management of the attorneys
who hail that part of it in charge,
that the committee could not under
stand nor straighten out the mixed up
evicenee. This we can assure our
readers from the most reliable source
is not the case ut all. And whoever
originated such an assertion drew
largely, for his conclusion, upon a
perverted imagination. Mr. Ettcrs,
the clerk of the committee, who hits
gone over all the testimony, had no
such fault to find with it, and he is
the only person who has examined the
entire case. In his preparation of it
for the printer he had occasion to
strike out, or rather take from the tes
timony, a large amount of superfluous
matter in the records anil docuinenta- ;
rv evidence, which was considered by
the committee out necessary to IK- put
in the printed copy, but which is pre
served by the clerk for the use of the '
committee if occasion requires it.
The true reason why the case ha"
not been disposed of up to this lime
is, first, the indisposition of the com- .
mittce to take up any contests during
the extra session of Congress, the ex
tra session having la-en called, as is
well known, to pass the appropriations
for next year. Another reason, and
jierliaps the principle one is, that the |
appropriation for public printing for .
the year having la-en exhausted, Mr. ;
Dcfrees, the public printer, re funs I
to print any matter except such as
wi absolutely necessary for the daily
use of the House and Senate. True,
the lowa cacs were before the com
mittee, and passixl upon by the com
mittee, but the r-[>ort has nof been
presented in the House and probably
will not lie at this session. It might
lie in place here to state that the com
mittee hnvc decided against the contest
ant* in these two case* and Messrs. j
Carpenter and Sapp, two IU-publican
rneml>ers, will retain their seats, which
shows that this committee is a fair j
one, and not a political machine to
sent every Democrat who may contest
a seat in Congress. Hut notwithstand
ing the indisposition of the committee
to consider any eases, at present, the
i case of Curt in vs. Yocum would have
been taken up by the committee, if it
| could have been printed, and. Mr.
Bttera, the clerk, worked faithfully
and hard to have it in readiness be
fore Congress adjourned.
The ease has made all the progress
it possibly could under the circum
stances. There are several hundred
1 pages of it printed already, and it is
! the only one in the printer's hands,
and no other will precede it, as he has
instructions from the proper ahthority
to print it as fast as possible. After
the appropriations for next year are
applicable, which they will be after
the Ist of July, the printing will he
done in a very short time. Should
fJongress adjourn, the committee has
authority by virtue of a resolution
passed by the House to prepare this
case during the vacation, so as to have
it ready by the time CongresH meets
in December.
TIIK anonymous " Not a Kcbel,"
who aim himself through a column or
so of stupid and disjointed trash in the
Ik-llefonte Republican, of this week,
will excite only derision and contempt.
Indeed, we greatly fear the reverend
gentleman for whom he assumes to
sjieak will, when he reails " Not a
Rebel," IK- moved to exclaim in agon
ising accents, " < od prevent this poor
fool from saying anything more about
me or my oratiou." In regard to his
"word to Major Forstcr," that gentle
man desires to say that he lias no dis
position to enter upon a controversy
with any one about bis loyalty and
patriotism in the past. Ho prefers
that the record made by a soldier in
two wars for his country shall settle
all questions of tliut character. At
least, lie will not engage in a wrangle
with any one who skulks behind a
nom ile ji/uine. " Not a Rebel " docs
not say in so many words that he was j
a soldier, though he may intend that j
to be inferri-d. If " Not a Rebel " j
did serve in the army lie was probably
a skulker then, a he is now, for no
brave man would Is- mean enough to
attack the patriotism of a fellow sul
dier from behind a sereen fifteen years
after the |M-riisl of their military ser
vices. This is all Major Korster has
to say to " Not a Rebel."
Tho Napoleonic Dynasty.
The death of Prince Napoleon in
Zulu land, says the Baltimore shat
ters the hopes of the French ini|M-ri
uli.-ts, whilst it removes one obstruct
tion to the permanent establishment of
the republic; for so long as Prince |
Louis Na|sdenn lived be would have
bad a numerous following in the pro
vinces ami among the clergy, and in
the chances and changes of French
polities he might, in the course of
years, have attained to power. Now,
by tlie will of the first Napoleon,
Prince Jcrorue Bonaparte i" the lu-xt
in succession; hut his profession of
lils-ral principles and the bitter antag
onism that lias cxi-tcd for a long time
between him and the Empress and her
ill-fated son have brought him into ;
disrepute with the imperialists, while \
he lias won for himself no solid favor
with the republicans. For himself*
therefore, he can expect no geuuine
support from that quarter, although
the exigencies of the im|>eriulists may
induce them to rally around his son,
Najiolcou Victor, four years younger
than the lnte I'rinee imperial, and
coming, nfter his father, in the line of
succession. But if the republicans
are' the immediate gainers by the death
of Prince Isoui* Napoleon, the < >r
leanist princes are also greatly
strengthened in their dynastic a-pira
tious. Since the fnll of the empire
they have acted with great discretion,
and the restoration of their estates has
given them all the power that money
can wield when the occMton comes for
using it to support their claims. But
the great and immiiliate relief is that
cxjierienced by the republicans, for
the activity and aggressiveness of the
im|torialists kept tliem always promi.
nenlly before the people, and the name
of Napoleon was still capable of in
spiring enthusiasm in many depart
ments of France.
THE ultimatum of the Democrats
to Mr. Hayes in relation to the vetoed
Judicial hill will probably be as fol
lows :
"The vetoed hill divested of its appro
priation of fOOO.UOO for f's-s of I'mted
j States marshals and their deputies and of
j the legislation relating to title 2'> of the
revised statutes concerning deputy mar
shals of elections, to he pa*d with all it*
remaining features unsized. Closely fu|.
lowing wtiieh thero would he sent to Mr.
1 Hayes for his approval (or rather for his
I e*|>eoted veto) a separata bill made up of
the $fi00,00l) Item and other clauses above
Bhould Mr. Hayes be foolish enough
to disagree to the Appropriation hill
| in this shape, we say to the Democrat
j ic members of Congress, " Gentlemen,
pack your traps and go homo."
IF it were possible for Republican
leaders, says the Washington l'osi, to
stop their idle clamor about the treat*
mcnt accorded to soldiers by the De
mocracy, nothing more would be heard
of it after Mr. Voorbees' scathing ex
posure of it* falseness and hypocrisy.
There never was one iota of truth in
the claim that the Republican party
is a better friend than the Democratic
party to the Union soldiers. It was
always false in general and in particu
lar. It wa* invented as a campaign
lie, and a* such has done duty ever
ainctf the war. It has been exposed
and disproved a thousand times, but
bus always re-appeared on the eve of,
every campaign. The fact that the '
Democratic party has given a larger*
proportion of the few offices at its dis- 1
to Union soldiers, than lias been <
duue by the Republican party, ought 1
to he conclusive. But facts are- not (
permitted to ti-11 against the "tamlard 1
campaign lie* of the Ruilirul organi
zation, I
Congress and tho Executive.
Mr. Hayes Ims graciously signed the ,
Army and Is'gi-lative nppreiprinlioi <
bills, and thus fiir yielded to the tin- 1
doubled demands of public opinion as
expressed by the representative* of the i
people. In the Army bill the Di-mo- j
crats have substantially secured all
they contended for in the bill previ
ously vetoed. The soldiers of (lie gov- '
ernmcnt cannot be used for the pur-
JMISI-S of an ordinary [siliec force at '
elections, which at least insures u bul
lot free trom Federal interference so
far a- the ariuv i- concerned.
Ihe appropriation bill, providing ,
for the Judiciary cx|ens<--, Mr. Haves
ha" seen proper again to veto, ou the '
ground that it fuiled to authorize uuv j,
part of the appropriation to be applied
in the employment of deputv mar
-1 shuL and supcrvi-ors to supi rintetid
and control elections. He prefer- to
! close the courts of justice rather than ;
lose the services of these- efficient aid- 1
to Republican SUCecM ut till' |sdl".
He may IH- gratified, nnd -till not Is- ■
happy when the tieople have had a
| chance to decide lietwwn home rule
and consolidation ; free elections and
federal interference.

but you shall not use a dollar of it to j

If Mr. Ilayes refuses to accept it on

will lie a calamity in some cases to have

Edward Fayson Weston has at last
won a walking match and is now "cham

over Brown, his only antagonist, and
when the match ended at 11 o'clock in
