THE OEMOCSATIC LOVE FEAST
The . Democratic gathering at Har
risburg, last week, ended in recon
ciliation and harmony.. After more
than the usual amount of ruffianism
with a liberal display of revolvers
and the free use of 'black jacks, the
factions were welded into a single, if
not homogeneous mass, amidst the
wildest enthusiasm. It must have
been an edifying 'spectacle to have
witnessed the embracing of the round
era and repeaters as they clasped
hands and kissed in fraternal con
cord, notwithstanding the conten
tidns of the previous hours, and the
blackened eyes and broken heads
which fitly added variety . and em
phasis to . the scene.
•It matters but little which of the
leaders has gained a victory in this
faction of the 'Convention. Whether
I Mr. WaELacE should be crowned
with the victor's laurels or Mr. RAN
DALL be hailed as the' conqueror, or
whether it is to redound to the ad
vantage of TILDEN or HANCOCK, or
some "dark horse," is not 6f the
slightest consequence. Neither is it
worth while to consider whether or
not there is any sincerity in the pro-
fessions of the leaders of- the differ
ent factions. Probably there is still
the Same feeling of enmity and
jealousy rankling in the bosoms of
the men who joined _in declaring
peace at Harrisburg, and agreed to
bury for.s time their prejudices and,
1 - forget their personal grievances. Be
-that as it may, the action is signifi
carft, and full of warning to Repub
licans. It slaws that the Democracy
are determined not to permit person
al preferences or private grievances to
stand in the wiiy of united and vigor
ous action. It was apparant to both
of the controlling spirits in the Con
vention, that as
as was their
personal hold on their followers,
there was a still stronger feeling pre
dominating, which was the success of
the Democratic party in the coming
Presidential election. Our Republi
can friends may as well awake to the
consciousness and proper realization
of the fact that there is to be a bit
ter, unscrupulous and desperate effort
made by the - united Democracy to
elect their nominee for the Presi
dency, whoever be may be. It is
sheet folly or madness to count upon
disaffection or division in the Demo
cratic ranks. Should TILDEN be
nominated, he will receive the united
and cordial support of the Democ
racy, and none of 'theta will be more
active inpromoting his success, than
'the malcontents who are now growl
ing and threatening in the prospect
of his nomination. The not unreason . -
able hope of victory, made possible
by a solid South,,mill have the effect
to consolidate the Democratic vote,
and will inspire the rank and file,
eager for the spoils, with a-degree.of
confidence which will add immensely
to the vigor 'with which the canvass
will be conducted.
Republicans should heed the warn
ing conveyed in this action of the
Pennsylvania Democratic Conven
tion. They should see and properly
appreciate the tremendous struggle
which is coming, and , the danger
there is in allowing the partizanship
of favorite candidates to be carried
to extremes. i With the alarming fact ,
staring us in the face that the united
Democracy are ready to make a vig
orous fight to get possession of the
government, that they are willing to
sink all personal preferences, and to
forego all private animosities for the
sake of success, it. becomes Republi
cans to stop their petty bickerings
about availibiiity of candidates, or
abstract theories, or whether one
term or - three is proper, and profiting
by the example of our adversaries

ject shall be to save the nation from

There will be - no bolters from the

ing in force the fine and disqualifica
tion for holding office. The recom
mendation was at once approved by
the 'Goiernor and the five men set at
liberty. The action of the Board
was unanimously made, Attorney-
General PALMER not being present,
but acquieseeing. No protest was
made on the part of the Common
wealth. The reasons given. l inay be
briefly stated : The sentence of one
year in the penitentiary goes beyond
the law, because the act of the Legis
lature which defines the crime of
corrupt solicitation does not provide
for rigorous penitentiary imprison
ment at -labor for that crime, but
simply imprisonment. It was claim
ed by the convicted parties that the
unnecessacily" sev'cre sentence fm
posed by Judge PmasoN was , not
justified by law. This view was ac
cepted by the Board of Pardons, and
in a measure acquiesced by the Com
monwealth, as 'no appearance was
made by the counsel who - Were active
in the prosecution, and no attempt
made to procure an adverse decision.
This unanimous action Of the
the Board will meet with gene ral ap
probation. That the severity of the
sentence pronounced upon the Offend
ers may have had some effect in
reconciling the' public to a pardon,
is possible, but there hag been a
universal recognition of the faet that
the condition of the men who had re
ceived the sentence of the Court was
anomalous, and not in the category
of criminals who are usually brought
to the bar of justice to receive the
penalties of the violated law. The
majesty of the law has been asserted,
the purposes for which the statute
was created has been fully, carried
out, and the present was no occasion
for the gratification of personal vin
dictiveness or for the infliction of ex
traordinary and unnecessary punish
ment. Public sentiment had already
declared the perfect vindication of
the law, and the efficiency of the ex
ample made to prevent in the future
the repetition of the offense, and
and there was no desire nor expecta
tion that a punishment should be en
forced, which was , not sanctioned by
THE Fourth-Year Conference of the
Methodist Church commenced at Cincin
nati, onSaturday, and is expected to con
tinue about a month. It will represent
one of the largest daieminations of the
country; for reckoning by households and
families, some twelve million of people
more or less, are supposed to be withi
the pale of the ' ?lurch. The actual en
rolled membership of the. Method'
church, in ita various branches, is not f
from three and a-half millions of peep
(3,400,000), and those indirectlynnder i#s
_wing are probably four times as many.
The Methodist Episcopal,. which is the
original body, and much the largest, is
superintended by nine bishops and 4.50
presiding elders or sub-bishops. The,Con
ference elects the bishops as required ; it
also arranges for 'the (affairs of its two
great publishing housei, the agents and
editors of its journals, and provides fur
missionary work. Among the other sub
jects to be discussed is the restriction of
the three years' pastorate; which limits
at present the contimeince of any clergy
man for mote than that term over auy
one church. As there are 11,500 regular
ministers,, this is a moving matter indeed.
It prevents the strong-rooted attachments
that grow up between a confidential and
trusted clerical adviser of many years'
standing ; it alsto prevents any overshad
owing growth of ocal fame. The greatest
good of the greatest number is the theory
of these triennial removals, of which the
spcial and domestic inconvenience is stare
ly very great. The families of the minis
try, at least, can appreciate the nomad
life and the sentiment that man is but a
sojourner here below, gets divided up
amongst many sojourns and is accented
by the packing up of personal belongings
every third year. The. Methodist Church
has been the church of the White House
for ten_ years, and some of its leading
bishops have been warm friends of 'both
the present and the last administration.
PATTERSOIC, N. J., had a first elassfrow

The announcement on Saturday that
Colonel Scott had tendered his resigna

Railroad, took the community by stir
prim, though it was probably known to
his flriends that it was to be done, and
was not'entirely unexpected to those_ who
were acquainted with him. His health
for a year past has been such that be has
not been able to give the road that atten
tion which it demanded, and it wad with
a view to recuperating that he ' went

home very Much improved, but the work
which he has been compelled to 'undergo
has been destroying the plod effect of the
tour. Following out the advice of his
physicians Colonel Scott, on the Ist . of
June, will withdraw from railroad duties
entirely, not only relinquishing his con
nection with the . Pennsylvania Railroad
Company proper, but also from its later
