szvraorms LETrEB OF Acccer
At last we have Seymour's letter accepting
the Democratic Presidential nomination. He
gives as a reason for his delay in issuing this
document, that he wanted to see "what light
the action of Congress would throw upon the
interests of the country." The true explana
tion of his tardiness is, probably, to be found
n the fact that he desired to ascertain the
popular feeling regarding certain obnoxious
clauses in the Democratic platform, and to
shape his course somewhat with the current.
The letter is distinguished by two character
istics—the utter falsity of its statements and
its want of exact accord with the letters of
Frank Blair and with the expressed opinions
of the other Democratic leaders. The first
peculiarity is not at all remarkable; the latter
is - sufficiently so to excite the surprise' of those
who do not understand the ambiguity, and
consequent opportunity for diverse construc
tion, of the Democratic manifesto. It was
inevitable that we should find fault with Mr.
Seymour, but this letter is so vulnerable, and
its every sentence is so susceptible of positive
contradiction,that the mendacity of the author
can be made clear to the dullest comprehen
sion, whileits failure to agree precisely with
the declarations of Blair and ether leading
Democrats, is manifest from simple com
Mr. Seymour begins with a falsehood. He
makes-the-stale--assertion- that-his nomination
sass "nnannuht and nr:lrpectpd" and th a t h.
was "caught up by the whelming tide," and
"found himself unable to resist the pressure."
The history of the fraud by which he manip
ulated the Democratic Convention to his own
advantage, adjourning it illegally when the
tide set in favor of another candidate, and in
triguing in caucus with the Ohio delegation,
bas been exposed too recently to need fresh
demonstration here. His chicanery was only
surpassed by his hypocritical pretense that he
was surprised by the final action of the Con
Mr. Seymour asserts that "Congress has
allied itself with the military power which is
to bear directly upon the election." This is
a repetition of the oft repeated Cop,serhead
slander that General Grant will use the troops
in the South to prevent free expression of
opinion at the polls. General Meade's recent
order withdrawing his soldiers from all su
pervision of civil affairs, and the well known
'fact that the local governments of nearly all
the States are in organized existence, and in
-j hands of legally elected civilians, is suffi
cient a ng l ipr to this. Mr. Seymour is aware
of these facts, and lie knows absolutely that
as far as General .coriceroeci i a South
ern man who is not disfranchised can vote
with as much freedom for the candidate of his
choice, as , can the most violent Democrat in
New York city. He knows, moreover, that
jf General Grant had the power that is attri
buted to him, he would not use it. Such a
base imputation of the honor of his opponent
could only come from a man whose moral
nature is perverted by devotion to a political
career that has never been checked for an
instant by scrupulous regard for means to
attain its end.
In one particular Mr. Seymour's views are
identical with those of General GranT. Ile
asserts that the "interests of the country de
mand peace." But it is just here that he
differs with his party, whose Southern
branch, if we are to take the declaratioru, of
its orators and organs, is engaged in or
ganizing a new rebellion. These absolutely
threaten war in the event of defeat at the
polls, and the return of the Southern States
to anarchy if they succeed in electing their
candidates. If there is anything in the Dem
ocratic programme better understood than
this, we do not know of it. The issue is as
clear as any that has ever existed between
two political parties. It is to this fact that Mr.
Seymour must attribute the "uncertainties"
with which "the minds of business men are
perplexed;" not to the policy of Congress.
Under.the latter,our commercial relations with
the South would now be resumed, were it
not that merchants fear the redemption
of the Democratic promise to undo
the work of reconstruction, and disturb the
wise and benign results that have sprung from
that work. They have another source of
alarm in the declared intention Qf the Demo
crats to repudiate part of the debt. This
would deereelate the currency, cause con
stant fluctuation of values, and do incalcu
lable injury tc national and private credit.
These are the considerations that fill business
men with unecirtainty and hurt rue best inte
rests of the country. But upon one of these
questions Mr. Seymour has nothing to say.
Ile Goes not utter one word for or against the
repudiation plank in the platform, and we can
only conjecture his endorsement of it by his
assertion that "the resolutions adopted by the
Convention accord with his views." This is
one of the theories of his party which he
found to be unpopular. He is afraid to come
before the country and personally make repu
diation an issue with the honest American
' people.
• Ile complains that "the people are har
assed with the frequent demands of tax
gatherers," but he proposes no remedy. In
the improbable event of his election does he
intend ta lessen that burden by repudiating
our obligations, and carrying on the (3, )ve
meat-without money? Or will he permit tli
tux-gatherers still to harass the people? It
.be entertains the first design, the afflicted pe
WWl° know it. If the latter is bis in-
tention, why does he allude to a thing that is
as unavoidable as it is disagreeable?,. If he'
intended the sentence simply as a hit,of poli
tical buncombe, "sound and furY signifying
nothing," it is contemptifile and stupid. \
Ile says, also, that "the chiefs . of the late
rebellion have'submitted to the T:aalts of the
war, and- are now quietly engaged in Useful
pursuits." This is false. In the very Con
vention from which ho obtained 'his nomina
tion, there were dozens of rebel officers, and
the committee by whom was drafted the plat
form upon which he stands, contained the
rebel generals Wade Hampton, Joseph E.
Johnson, William Preston and Barksdale,
together with Langdon a rebel editor from
Louisima,and Babcock, Speaker of the lower
Efouse of the rebel Legislature of Virginia.
Moreover, most of these, with "Admiral"
St mmes, Howell Cobb, B. H. Hill, and a
multitude of minor men who were active
rebels, are now stumping the South, making
speeches in which the lost cause is glorified,
and promised success, and in which bitterer
anti-Union sentiments are uttered than any
that found expression before the war. Mr.
Seymour deliberately misstated the fact,
when he penned that paragraph, for no man
knows better than he does, the exact char
acter of the men who are supporting him in
the South.
But Seymour is' directly at variance with
hie party in one respect. He says "the elec
tion of a Democratic Executive would not
give to that party power to make sudden and
violent changes." This is a declaration
against the announced determination to with
draw Congressional reconstruction in the
rebel States; and it is another result of Sey
mour's desire to follow the popular current.
Wade Hampton's para&raph - in the platform,
says, "The reconstruction acts are unconsti
-tutional and void."- Frank Blair, in his Brod
head letter, asserts that "the real and only
issue in the contest," is upon the substantia
lity of this reconstruction, and that it "can
be overthrown by the Executive * * who
will faik ‘ to do his duty it' he allows the
Constitution to perish under a series of enact
ments which are in palpable violation of its
fundamental principles." He reiterates this
sentimentin his letter of acceptance. We
accept the declaration of the party, rather
!ban that of Seymour, assured that if elected
he will be found pliant when the demand is
made upon him, or else that he will be re-
moved by approved rebel methods, to enable
Blair to embrce lua policy.
Mr. Seymour affects to believe that his nomi
nation has been received with unparalleled
enthusiasm. We know, and all intelligent
men know, that it surprised the very Con
vention that effected it, and fell as coldly
upon the rank and file of the party, as, the
Domination of a man who in local elections
has invariably run behind his ticket only
could. Neither his personal qualities nor
his political career furnish material from
which enthusiasm can be manufactured.
The boast that he gave In,ooo commissions
during the war, avails nothing in view of the
facts, that from his official position he could
not possibly have done otherwise, and tha;
hie whole record dining the strife was that of
a strenuous, consistent and malignant oppo
Dent of the war itself, and of every measure
which could aid its successful conclusion.
Mr. Seymour's letter is a failure. It is on
skilfully constructed; it is filled with sophistry
and falsehood; and while it is open to the ri
dicule and contempt of the Republicans, i
by no means satisfies the demands and ex pec
tations of the Democracy. If this is all hi
has to say respecting the issues now befor,
the country, he can rest assured that his pro
fneeed Aversion to accepting the Presidency
Will be met by the actual dc,:_erminatien of t4f,'
people that he shall not do so,
With the development and growth of the
West,during the last ten years, there has been
a grand shifting of all the centres of popula
tion, wealth and commerce. What used to
be a mass of undefined "Indian Territory"
and "Great American Desert" on our school
day maps, is now organized and inhabited,
in States and settled Territories. What was,
but yesterday, the "Far West," is so no
longer. Chicago, St. Louis and Cincinnati
are, to a 1 interests and purposes, as much
Distern cities, as Pittsburgh, Philadelphia,
New York or Boston. The real "West" of
to-day, comes east" to Chicago for its sup
plies, and Chicago with its quarter of a mil
lion of inhabitants, its immense commercial
activities, its splendid municipal improve
ments, its grand capabilities for the future, iE
one of the main points upon which the new
regions beyond the Rocky Mountains wit:
pivot their business operations for generations
to come.
The_ old divisions of the Coiled States int',
Eastern, Middle, Southern and Western Sates
have long ago ceased to have any practical
meaning. The rebellion has obliterated the
one institution of slavery, which gave signifi
cation to the designation of the Southern
States, while the Western boundaries have
pushed themselves so far away that to call
New York or Pennsylvania Middle States is
simply an absurdity. The real "Middle
State" of the Union is Nebraska, fifteen hun
dred miles west of Pennsylvania.
We want a new nomenclature for the
geographies and maps of the rising
generation. We want an adoption of
the natural, not the political, divisions
of the country. These natural divisions
are very clearly marked and easily remora
bered. The two grand lines teat cut the con
tinent longitudinally are the Mississippi River
and the Rocky Mountains, and taking these
as the natural boundaries of the several sec
tions, we have, the Eastern, the Middle and
the Western States. The Eastern comprises
New England; the old Middle and Southern
States,excepting Louisiana and Texas; Michi
gan, Indian-, Wisconsin, Ohio, Illinois, Ken
tucky, Tennessee and Alabama. The "Mid
dle" comprises Dakota, Minnesota, Nebraska,
lowa, Kansas, Missouri,Arkansas, Louisiana,
and Texas. The "Western" comprises
Aliasha, Oregon, WashingtOn,ldaho, Wyom
ing, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, California,
Ai izona and New Mexico.
A reconstruction of American geography
would have many advantages. It would d.)
away with educational terms which have
now absolutely no meaning in our schools; it
would convey a proper idea of what are the
rtal and natural sub-divisione of the country;
and it would break - down the old political an
tagonism of North and. South, which reated
upon no distinction Faye the single-one of
slavery, now and forever dons*away. This
last would be •of incalculable advan
tage to the future peace and prosperity
of the whole countre, It would root
out a class of troublesome politicians,
anti pestilent dogmas, and false notions that
haveteen so long a plague co our national
harmony, and would realize the phrase upon
which American orators have rung so many
changes, that we know "no North, no
South," but only those grand sections of the
great Continent which have been mapped
out, by the finger of Omnipotence.. Even
tually these new divisions will be made as a
matter of necessity, and it matters not how
soon the general mind of the country begins
to familiarize itself with the idea.
NAVY 31.1111 D FRAUDS.
The Philadelphia Navy Yard has the Mi -
fortune to be located in the First Congres
sional District, over which the Democracy
presides with almost undisputed sway. It
does not seem to have been of any special
advantage to the public service that this
should be the case, and there are periodical
disclosures of rascality in one mechanical
department after another, which are not
pleasant in the eyes of honest men, and not
calculated to elevate Philadelphia's credit
Congress recently instructed the Committee
on Naval Affairs to investigate the adminis
tration of the Steam Engineering Department
of the Navy Yard, and a sub-committee has
just made a report to the Secretary of the
Navy, through its chairman, Hon. Wm. D.
Kelley. It shows, plainly enough, that a
raudulent favoritism has been practiced, in
the - purchase of tools from a New York man
ufacturer, in the face of lower and better bids
from the best Philadelphia houses. The
committee does not seem to have fastened
this rascality upon its perpetrators, but the
fact itself appears very plain. The Secretary
of the Navy is called upon to order such an
investigation as will bring the offender to
light, and to punishment, and it is to ba pre
sumed thatlir. Welles-will-act-upon- the sug
gestion as promptly as comports with his
usual method of doing business.
This exposure of official fraud at the Navy
Yard should be made a searching and
thorough - one; — without - respect — to pffiltical
considerations:. We—Rave-no - know ledge' o
the politics of the suspected parties, except iu
the general fact that the Navy Yard is largely
under Democratic control. But there are
officials enough of both Republican and
Democratic professions who regard office as
a mere machine for swindling the public and
feathering their own foul nests, and we
rejoice in every investigation which tends
to unearth their speculations and
bring their evil deeds to the light. The real
spirit of the Republican party is in favor of a
purification of every public office from the
President down to the lowest subordinate who
receives Government pay, and it is to the
honor of a Republican Congress that it has
always been ready to investigate fraud and
punish official offenders, without fear or par
tiality. Upon no other principle can
the Republican institutions of America
be maintained. The fearful demorali
zation which was spread through all
the public offices of the country under
Democratic rule, before the rebellion, was
one of the causes of the rise and success of
the Republican party. The purification of
such abuses as may have crept in during the
last eight years is duty over which Congress
should and does keep a watchful eye, and
the probing of this ulcered spot at the Phila.-
- ,NFIvy Yard is only a part of drat sur
gery which is needed to restore health and
vigor once more to the whole body politic.

Tile Tragedy to Starourebary,Vermont.
The Rutland Herald brings us the details of
the Gilman murder in Shrewsbury, Vt., on Sat
nrday evening, already briefly reported by tele
graph. The Rutland journal says :
For many years a feud has existed between
the Plumley and Balch families, numerous law
suits growing out of the same, and a salt being
pending.between them in the Rutland Co. Court.
A few days ago two horses, owned by Isaac H.
Balch, broke into a field of' corn owned by Jibs
Plumley, doing considerable damage, and as ts
consequence the animals wore impounded. Dis
interested persons were appointed to appraise
the damages. which - they were en
gaged In. doing on Saturday afternoon,
in company with George Butterfly. a son
in-law of Plumley, when they were approached
by Balch and John Gilman and his son, John
Gilman, Jr. Some words followed between Balch
and the Gilmans on one side. and Butterfly on
the other, as to the merits of the question under
appraisal, which they seemed to settle, and all
started toward the road, distant about thirty rods,
nearing which Balch and Butterfly shook hands,
the latter remarking that he was "willing to let
by-goner be by-goner ," and that ho would 'stand
the drinks for the crowd: With this explana
tion Butterfly started for the house of his father
in-law to get a pint of rum with which to keep good
his promise. He was absent, however, about an
hour, during which the appraisers departed, but
young Gilman remained in the field within a few
feet of the road, his father and Balch standing, in
the highway. At the expiration of the time men
tioned Butterfly returned, in company with
Horace R Plumley, Frederick Plumley, and Ziba,
their father. Horace Immediately approached
Gilman, pointing a loaded shot gun at him, and or
dend him out of the held, with which request
Gilman expressed his willingness to comply, bat
the gun being in what he evidently regarded too
close proximity to him, ho seized hold of the
barrel of the same and attempted unsuccessfully
to wrench it from the hands of Plumley. At this
juncture Frederick Plumley approached Gilman,
and threatened to stab him with a
pitchfork, with which he was armed, unless he
quitted the field. Gilman turned to ward oil the
blow of the fork, and in doing so loosed his hold
on the shotgun in the handsof Horace, when the
latter deliberate=ly fired upon him. the charge of
shot taking effect, in the region of the heart. Two
workmen in the employ of Balch, named Wina
atm Quartier, then came up. and cross firing
ensued, during which several volleys were dis
charged, resulling in inflicting a severe wound in
the left leg of John Gilman, Sr., and a flesh
wound in the right leg, as well as a scalp wound
on the person of Horace R. Plumley, who fired
the first shot. A Coroner's jury was organized on
Saturday evening, and the result was a verdict
"that the deceased, John Gilman,Jr., came to his
death from the effects of a charge of shot, dis
charged from a weapon in the hands of some per
son to the jury tinknown." The verdict was
rendered that Horace Plumley may receive the
benefit' of doubts in the case. as he claims that he
acted in self-defence, or that the discharge of the
weapon was accidental. Young Gilman was a
resident of Little Falls, N. Y., and was but tem
porarily at Shrewsbury, to help his father
through haying and harvesting. He was about
22 years of age.

Atm. s.—The Government bond market was
firmer, and prices advanced in the 1861 s, 18625,
old and new 18655, and ten-forties. The advance
in ten-forties is causing investors to sell them and
buy the new 6 per cent. gold bonds.
The gold market continues active and excited,
opening at 147 k, advancing to 148 X and closing
at 148 at 3P. M. The rates paid for carrying.
were 3M, 4,2, 2M and 3 per cent. to flat. After
the Board adjourned the excitement increased
and the price advanced to 14 with enormous
transactions; closing at 149 to 149Ji at 6 P. M.
The operations of the Gold Exchange Bank to
day were as follows :
Gold balances $2,669,974 17
Currency balances 3,547,077 63
Gross clearances 101.606 00
The chief excitement in Wall street centres in
the Gold Room, where transactions have been on
a scale of unusual magnitude, with fluctuations
greater than at any time since the London crisis
m 1866, when the price advanced to 167. The
lowest price of the day was 147, and tke highest
143.3, which was bid for large amounts at about
5 P. M.
The gold and exchange markets wore further
exalted by the report that a_Gartaan priate Iknir

to be without foundation. Rumors like these,
industriously circulated everywhere as this was
today, are to be deprecated at any season, but
more eepetially when affairs are unsettled as at

gold to-day.

The country is beginning ,to be awakened from
the delusion In which it oft been kept by the
misrepresentation in regard to the resumption of
specie payments, which 'Secretary. McCulloch
officially promised was to take place on July 1,
1868. 160 far from this being the case, the stock
of gold in the, country is clangorously small,
reduced thereto by the financial policy of
Government and the national banks, which have
done all in their power to drive the precious
metals out of the country. Oar gold and silver
mines are, In point of fact, working to enrich
London and Paris. The propositions that oar
stock of specie must be increased before it
is possible to resume specie payments is so
simple as to seem almost childish to state.
And yet in the face of this plain
fact, Government and the banks, instead of
holding on to their specie and accumulating it,
have been running a race with each other as to
which could sell their gold quickest and at the
lowest prices. They have also done all In their
power to keep down the price of gold by unna
tural Ea ean s,so that it has been one of the cheapest
of American products to _export. Oar specie
shipments since the passage of the Legal Tender
net InFebrnary.lB62,have amounted to the enor
mous sum of $370,000,000 In gold, equal to $550,-
000,000 in currency, with gold at its present
price. If there is any serious intention with the
powers that be to resume specie payments, then
a policy Lust be adopted at once which shall
retain and accumulate specie in this country, in
stead of driving it to Europe. Both Government
and banks must retain and accumulate their gold.
The banks must bo compelled to keep the $20,-
000,000 in gold interest received from Govern
ment against their $306,000,000 of circulating
notes, and the Secretary of the Treasury must no
longer violate the one per cent. in gold Sinking
Fund act. If the Government and banks had
pursued this common-sense business policy. in
stead of sell(! their gold as fast as they could,
then they would have held to-day over 113300,000,-
.000 in gold against $66,000,000, their present
stock, and considerable progress would have
been made on the road which leads to specie
f From filo New York Herald of to-day.)
Ana. s.—The gold market has been very strong
and active to day, and the fluctuations were wider
than usuaL From the opening to the adjourn
ment of the board sales were made at prices
varying from 147 to 148 X, with the - closing
transactions'at 148; but following this-there-rase
rapid advance to 149%, and the latest quotation
on the street was 1490149 N. The attendance in
the room was large, and great excitement ac
companied the dealings at frequent intervals.
The volume of business was very heavY, and
there was a moderately active borrowing demand
for coin. Loans were made "flat" and at rates
varying from two to four per cent. for carrying.
The gross clearings amounted' to $104,606,000,
the gold balances to $2,669,994, and the
currency balances to $3,547,097.
The ateumerAnstralasian took out $1.800.000
specie on account of the Alaska payment. It was
diligently rumored this morning that a German
banking house, heavily " short " of gold, had
failed or was about to fail, but the report was
afterwards contradicted. There was no apparent
cause for the extreme advance in old late in the
afternoon, but a feeling oofire preva s among
the importing and forelgu exchange hoz= who
are " short " of it that speculation will carry it
considerably higher, and hence there is a dispo
sition among them to " cover" their contracts
and return the gold they have borrowed. The
Bub-Treasury disbursed $63,000 in coin in pay
ment of interest on the public debt daring the
Government securities were firm at the open
ing, but afterwards there was a slight decline on
a portion of the list and a fractional advance on
the exportable bonds m sympathy with the ad
vance in gold. The homeinvestmerit demand is
increasing, but there is no speculative activity u
yet. Ten-Forties advanced to 109 X.
The railway share iharket opened weak, but
after noon it became strong, and Erie, which
sold at 56 at the opening, advanced to 62 before
the close. The street was as much surprised by
this reaction as by the downward turn in Erie oa
Monday and Tuesday, and it is completely be
fogged as to the influences at work. Rumor
says that a new party began to buy the stock this
morning, and that this entirely reversed the pro
gramme of the party which engineered the de
cline, and hence the sudden upward movement
instead of the confidently predicted further •de
cline to much lower figures.

WAPHINGTON, August 6th.—Govorner War
mouth's official requisition on the President for
forces with which to secure peace In Louisiana
_Wiis_pr_euen_ted yesterday_by lieut. CoL-John_F—
Deane, of his staff.
. .
Governor Warmouth encloses various letters
from citizens and State officers, setting forth the
horrible outrages that are daily being perpetrated
in portions of the State. Ho says that in many
parishes there exists no protection for the citi
zens in the Courts; that men are shot down in the
roads and at their houses without any steps
being taken to bring the offenders to justice.
The judge of the Twelfth Judicial District re
fuses to go to the parish of Franklin without a
force is sent to protect him. The sheriff of the
same parish, a Democrat, has resigned, con
fessing his inability to make arrests.
Prominent Union men in the Parish of Caddo
write that their homes are beset by desperadoes
and their lives have thus far been saved only by
armed men,who volunteered to guard them.
Mr. Hudsefeth,District-Attorney for the Eighth
District, whose letter is enclosed, says mon
women and children have recently been murdered
In the parish of St. Landry by bands cif armed
men, who remain unmolested.
Governor Warmouth has no doubt that one
hundred and fifty men have been murdered in
Louisiana in the last month and a half, and that
there seems to be a settled determination by the
rebels either to kill or drive away the Union
white men and leading colored men, so as to be
able to terrify the masses of colored people into
voting as they shall dictate.
A secret organization, founded for the purpose
of keeping colored men in a condition of.infe
riority, pervades the State. It designs with this
end the precipitation of a conflict between the
two races. There are military branches of this
secret organization on foot in the city of New
They drill openly in the streets at night, or in
haunts easy to be seen. The mob which threatened
the legislature some weeks since were only pre
vented from re-enacting the scenes of 1866 by the
presence of U. S. troops. It was the deliberate
intention of this organization to assassinate the
Lieut. Governor and Speaker of the House of
Representatives for having decided the prelimi
nary questions in a manner obnoxious to them.
In conclusion the Governor says he believes a
bloody revolution is meditated, and he asks two
regiments of cavalry and &regiment of infantry
and a battery of artillery torenable him to repress
violence, arrest criminals and protect the officers
of the law. lie believes a few examples pf _non
dign punishment would secure peace in the
State as soon as the political campaign is over.
It will be seen that this fully corroborates the
previous statements in these despatches, which
were twice contradicted by the Associated Press.
These denials, with the absence of any informa
tion of disorders at the South, by
the Associated Press, aro explainable by
the well-known rebel proclivities of the South
ern agents of that concern. It has been since
officially announced that the President will pro
bably take no action upon this requisition until
a full meeting of the Cabinet can be had, for
their consideration.
The Teachers , Convention.
fdpecial Despatch to the Philadelphia Evening Bollethi.]
ALLENTOWN, Aug. 6.—Prof. Brooks, the Pre
sident, called the Convention to order; prayer by
Rev. Mr. Wood, of Allentown. A hymn was
then sung by the audience with good effect.
Prof. Adams recited Crozer's "Vagabond."
Mr. Young, superintendent of Lehigh county,
announced that an excursion party for the
Switchback, near Mauch Chunk,would leave this
city to-morrow morning at six o'clock.
The "Culture demanded by the Times" was the
question under discussion.
Mr. Persons, of Crawford county, took a posi
tion against the report read last night by Prof.
Shumaker, of Chambersburg, that the common
schools were irreligious in their tendency.
Prof. Deane, of Chester county, defended the
report in the main.
Hon. J. P. Wickersham, State Superintendent,
made a very animated and eloquent reply to the
report of last night. He was not afraid of critic
ism. He defended the common school system of
Pennsylvania. He had repelled former attacks
upon this system, and he proposed to bury
this ' opposition by the figures to-day.
Thtre was no irreligion in our common
schools. Their teachers, in a moral
and religious point of - view, would compare with
men and women in any other profession. Indeed
they could not receive certificates if their moral
character was not sound. The Pennsylvania
system was the best in the United States. He
hoped the time would soon come when every
man and woman in the laud would be able to
receive honors from something like a post
graduate college in Pennsylvania, without one
cent of expense. His own son was In a common
school, and if he had as many children as old
Priam, they should all go to common schools,
which he regarded as preferable to academies
or boarding schools. Out of eleven thous cud
common schools iu Pennsylvania, about ten thou
d_ivere_opened-with-reading- othe-Serip tures
and other religious exercises. The text books
were not e irreligious or even immoral in their
tendency, as alleged In the report. Mx.- Wicker
sham's epe - ech was applaudedNigoronsiy through-
Prof. Wyere, of Chester '
took an intermediate
stand. As the teacher of an academy, he pro
tested against the allegation that the common
echool system :wad better than, or even equal to, •

Recovery of the Iron Safe—No Record
of the Lost IP asseugers.
[From the Chicago Journal, August 4.)
On the oth day - Cif last April the beautiful and
favorite steamer Bea Bird, of "Goodrich's line,
was burned and sunk in Lake Michigan, near
Waukegan. It is believed that nearly one hun
dred lives were lost by the fearful calamity, and
the painful uncertainty as to the exact number
will never be dispelled, for it is now ascertained
that the passenger list was destroyed in the iron
On Sunday last the propeller G. J. Truesdell,
belonging to the Goodrich hne, steamed from
this city to the closing scenes of that fearful dis
aster, and on arriving there, soundings wore
- made-for some signs ot the - awoken - boat. - Itwas
found lying in the same spot where it has lain
since it went down, about three-fourthslof
mile from shore, and some four miles this side of
An expert diver bad been taken on board the.
Truesdell, and, having made the necessar) , ar
rangemente,-he was lowered to the wreck. He
h • -a- 71 - 4C.71
made signs to have a stout line let down Co him,
and this being done, one end of it was made fast
to the iron safe of the Sea Bird, which was soon
landed on tbo deck of the Truesdell. The diver
returning, reported the sunken vessel to be lying
partially on her side, broken in twain, about
midships, and that after a careful search, he had
been unable to find any bodies. The safe was
broken open and discovered to be entirel• em 1 •
the terriblOYeat of the burning boat having en
tirely consumed all the papers, including the
passenger list, stored In it, thus destroying
every clue as to the exact number who perished..
The safe itself is nothing but a stout iron box,
intended to be burglarproof, but not made to
stand extreme heat. It is badly rusted and bat—
tered, and now lies just outside the office of the
Goodrich line, near Rush street bridge.
Having finished the examination of the safe.
the diver was let down for the second time and
attached the line to the anchor of the Sea Bird,
which was also hauled on board the propeller.
Further investigations were brought to a close by
the rising of a high wind, and the Truesdell re
turned to the city. There Is a , probability that
the search will be continued at some future day,
though the certainty of not being able to discover
anything additional concerning the number and
names of the lost will ,tend somewhat to deter
further inquiry. There can be no stores of value
left upon her, and as the bodies of those passen
gers that were carried down with the boat have
all been washed away, there is little left upon the.
sunken hulk of the ill-fated Sea. Bird to tempt
continued investigation.
