The Strike.'
The strike of the freight brakemen on the
Susquehanna and Western Divisions of the
Erie Road, which occurred last week, was oc
caskmed by an order from Superintendent
Rucker, reducing the pay from $2 to $1.75 per
day. The strike greatly interfered with the
transportation of freight, and a serious riot was
at one time feared at Romellseille, where the
brakemen had centered. The trouble was
Ocudly happily settled, by a . compromise which
divides the difference, and gives the brakemen
$1,87 1.2 per day. This road can well be called
the "Erie of Trouble." ,

An Old Stove.
The oldest stove probably in the United
States, is the ono which warms the hull of I
Virginia's capitol, Richmond. It was made in
England and brought to Richmond In 1770,
and warmed the House of Burgesses r sixty
years before it was removed to its present loco
cation, where it has been for thirty years. It
has survived three British monarchs; has been
contemporaneoys with three monarchies, two
republics and two Imperial governments of
France. The great republic of America has
been torn by Interred strife, the breaches partly
healed, and still the old stove.remnins unmoved
in the midst of all.
Remarkable Colncidences.
Mr. John .Moore,Ex-Sheriff of Mercer county,
Pennsylvania, recently died in the town of
Mercer. in his sixty-filth year. He had tilled the
office of Sheriff of Itlemur county during two
terms. Ile was married twice and it seems re
markable that the prominent events of his life
took place in the month of November. Ile
was burn in November, married his first wile
and buried her in November, was married a
second time In November, was sworn into office
for both terms in November, buried four child
ren in the month of November, of different
years, and finally died in November, 1970, leav
ing a widow and ten children.

One by one the weeks pass, Oh how slowly

seem like years. The house is so still, so dmrt

patter of tiny feet that we know can never

IllS MAJORITY 1,406.
PA I L A DELPH 11, Dec. 20. —The Senator
ial election held in the First District to
day resulted in 1,406 majority for Colonel
Robert I'. Deehert, the Democratic can
didate. This is a brilliant and substan
tial victory. It gives the democrats a
majority in the Senate for the first time
iu many years' and thus defeats, the dis
honest gerrymander which was made in
the apportionment cf 1862. With the
control of the Senate, the Democrats will
be able now to secure the just and fair
distribution of representatives among the
people of the State which is contemplated
by the constitttion. •At this time
imposii Wei to estiinate the many salutary
results which will flow front this victory
of the Democracy of the First. district.
It deserves to be hailed as the Commence
ment of u new and brighter era in the po
litical history of Pennsylvania.

A few months ago I was nominated for
Governor of the great State of New York,
to run against Stewart L Woodford and
John T. Hoffman, on the independent
ticket. I somehow felt that I had one
prominent advantage ovel• these gentle
men, and that was, good character. It
was easy to see by the newspapers, that if
ever they had known what it was to bear
a good name, that time had gone by. It
was plain that in these latter years they
had become familiar with all manner of
shameful crimes. But at the very mo
ment that I was exalting my advantage
and joying in it in secrect, there was a
muddy undercurrent of discomfort "ril
ing" the deeps of my happiness—and
that was, the having to hear my name
bandied about in familiar connection
with those of such people. I grew more
- and more disturbed. Finally I wrote my
grandmother about it. Her answer came
quick and sharp. She said :
" You have never done one single thing
in all you life to be ashamed of—not one.
Look at the newspapers—look at them
and comprehend what sort of characters
Woodford and Hoffman are, and then see
if you are willing to I..wer yourself to
their level and enter a public canvass with
It was my very thought ! I did not
sleep a single moment that night. But
after all, I could not recede. I was fully
committed and must go ou with the tight.
As I was looking listlessly over the papers
at breakfast, I come across this parapraph,
and I may truly say I never was so con
founded before:
" Pv.n.rrev.—Perhaps now that Mr.
Mark Twain is before the people as a can
didate for Governor, he will condescend
to explain how be eame to be convicted
of perjury by thirty-four witnesses, in
Wakawak, Cochin, China, in 1863, the
intent of which perjury was to rob a p?or
native widow and her helpless family of a
meagre plantain patch, their only stay
and support in their bereaverne6t and
their desolation. Mr. Twain owes it to
himself, as well as to the great people
whose suffrages he asks, to clear this mat-1

I had never seen Cochin China! laTI
never heard of Wakawak! I didn't know
a plantain patch from a kangaroo! I did
not know what to do. I was cmzed and
helpless. I let the day slip away not doing
anything at all. The next morning the
same paper had this—nothing more :

hard to swallow the wretched subterfuge
and pretended they did not know what

abandoned Creature whom they denomi
