The Allegheny County Con ven tio , which
assembled on Tuesday last was composed
of thoughtful, loyal men. Tt' resolutions
expressing the political et ...A of the party
are toned in the true wint of patriotism
and forbearance. R•ITY Patriotic citizen
of the county carn ,..t fail endorsing them.
Th e candid a t es ~ominated are men of ster
ling worth and integrity, eminently deserv
ing of the riffitage'of the loyal masses. We
have pl a ted the tihket at the head of our
semzuf page, and a brief Review of the so
ciarand political record or the individual
candidates will not be out of place.
For the office of Sheriff, a very impar.
tent one,- SAMUEL B. CLULEY has been
nominated. He was born in Philadelphia
in 1826, but at a very early age came to
this city and made It his home. lie learned
the carpenter trade, which he successfully
followed for a number of years. Possess:
Mira naturally gifted mind, he abandoned
the trade and became one of the reportorial
corps of the Pittsburgh Disporrli. His
connection with that journal was of the
moat pleasing and satisfactory nature, and
the warm manner in which our neighbor
advocated his nomination may be at
trlbrited to old assochnions. In 1857 be was
chosen_by Sheriff BODY PATTERSON as his
. ,Dnputy y - *Melt pitisition lie held up to the
dote of that official's term of office. Sher
iff Parransox Was succeeded in office by
JAlrint L. GEATIAM, who reappointed Mr.
CLULET as Deputy. In 1860, Sheriff GRA
MME was succeeded in office by the lament.
ed HABRY Wooos, who, upon assuming
his duties, retained Mr. CLULET as Deputy.
In August, 1863, Sheriff Woods was sum
moned to eternity, and the community
strongly urged upon Governor CURTIN the
appointment of Mr. CLULET to fill the va
cancy that; 'occasioned. He consented
to accept the office for the unex
pired term, three months, and permitted
the widow of his predecessor to draw the
emoluments- accruing front the office. At
the :expiration of his brief term, the
present. incumbent, JOHN H. STEW ART,
Esq : ,was chosen by the people his succes
.;:sOraillien,imtrance to office he acknowl.
edgettthe:abilltrof Mr. CIXLET hp eon
ferring upon hint the office of Deputy Sher
iff, which position lie has honorably and
faithfully filled up to the present time.
Mr. Ct.truer is a Tleasant, affable gentle.
man, a firm advocate of human liberty, and
a faithful, trustworthy member of the Union
Republicartparty. Ile is immensely popu
lar With the voters of the county, and no
better than could Itave been selected to lead
the ticket. The public interest demands
that he be elected to an office in which he
has had such ripe experience.
Per Clerk - of the Courts, also an impor
taut Office, the Convention wisely conferred
the nomination upon an empty-sleeve pat
. riot, JOHN G. BitowN, Hampton township,
late of Company II ?.(12,1 Pa. Volunteers.
Mr. B. warn brave and hodlant soldier, and
received the wound which render, hint
incapable of performing manual lalkor
the Battle of Seven Pines. lie inn gentle
man of good business imalinattions and
scholastic attainments. lie won for him
, self an enviable reputation as a clerk in
Provost Marshal gpsTEß's office of this
- district. He is a plain, unassuming gentle
man, and numbers a host of friends. His
nomination conclUsively proves that the
patriotic masses are willing to recognize
the claims of a wounded soldier upon their
gmtituiffe, anti to acknowledge in a sub
stantial manner the services rendered our
flag in the hour of-trial.
conferred the nomination of Clerk of the
Orphans' Court. Mr. H. is a thorough
gentleman, and in every respect worthy of
the nomination. It was given Win as are
cognition or his unfaltering devotion to
the principles of the party. If elected he
'will make ariattentive anti efficient officer.
There is not a more popular roman upon the
ticket than Mr. Etu..kxDs, and lie will poll
a very heavy vote.
HENRY SNIVEL , / is the candidate for
Recorder. He is a gentleman thor
oughly experienced in business matters,
and no wiser selection could have been
• made. At present he is employed as chief
clerk in the County Controller's office. He
is a true patriot, and has ever been a work
ing member of the party which places him
In the field as a candidate.
Tonal"' H. Gust, of Plum township,
late private in the 105th Pennsylvania Vol
unteers, has been nominated for Register.
This brave gentleman enlisted in 1861, and
served with honor and distinction until
wounded at the battle of Fair Oaks, in
1862. He was shot in the leg and render
ed a cripple for life. Mr. GRAY is a gentle
man, endowed with superior business tal
ent and is a ripe scholar. He will make
an energetic and capable officer.
For Commissioner °aortas HAIM,
Ton, has been nominated. We *eel
that Mr. HAMILTON- is too well known
throughout the county to need any word of
commendation from us. He is a firm, tin.
flinching Republican, and worthy of the
outline of every" loyal voter. •
Jortee F. Dttsvo, Mifflin township, has
been nominated for Director of the Poor.
The Convention,' :in selecting Mr. DRAT°
for this office, took into consideration his
goodness of heart and humane, Christian
character. If elected, the charitable coin.
infinity may rest'issured Riat the duties of
the office will not be neglected. He is a
staunch, reliable Union Republican.
Perhaps the most important4ject to the
people is to secure intelligent and trust
worthy representatives in the Assembly.
They should be experienced,' stireWdinen;
men who fear not doing theft' duty and
whose integrity is unimpeachable. such
have been placed In nomination, and we
doubt whether better citizens could be

The Cbminercial says: At a meeting of the

ed that th? . tresent floating debt isf the Com.
puny 411 ,000 toreo as otherwise stated $1,100,-
WO, in ad Won ich the Company now
owes to Mr. Drew, two millions of dollars. A
loan has been comparatively recently con
tracted with Mr. Drew, under which the Com
pany hypothecated the 11,000 shares of com
mon stock returned by Mr. Drew on payment
of a portion of his loan from the proceeds of
the sterling loan negotiated by Mr. Pearson,
so that Mr. Drew now holds 28,010 shares of the
stock, beside an amount of convertible bonds
as collateral, for his loan of 4d,000,000. The
President, Mr. Borden, assured the Board
that In the event of the earning e q ualhe road
continuing to the close of July, to what
they have been May, the company would be in
a position to pay a dividend upon Rostock,
although we understand upon good authority
that the road made a clear loss of .400,0 W upon
Its March Crank, and $3OlOOl upon that of
April. Whether the inipposed dividend is to be
considered as playable out of Mr. I)row's loan, or
from profits of the road, we are not Informed.
The public have, however, a very strong opin
ion that the Company is dbiposed to continue
Its old policy of borrowing money to pay Its
dividends. there would seem to be very good
reasons for supposing that the enormous sales
of Erie stock dming the last few days have
been made for the purpose of raising money
to pay a anal instalment of the loan to the
Company. Of course It is to be presumed that
