HON. COLUMBUS DELANO is spoken of
as the only really prominent candidate for
the Internal Revenue bureau under the new
Administration. In the fact that the men
tion of his name has - elicited an universal
approval, the friends of Mr. DEL:uro-have
recognized a high compliment to that gen
tleman, whose personal and official qualifi
cations well merit it.
KB. A. W. CAMPBELL, for many years
the editor of the Wheeling Intellige7cer, is
a candidate for the United States Senate.
He has' unquestionable abilities, is bold,
/courageous and reliable, and rendered im-.

through the rebellion. The Legislature of
- West Virginia can hardly do a better thing
than to corder that eminent position on him.
THE Connecticut Democracy insist upon
it that they still live. But, if therbe really
dead, they insist upon their right to con

to meet . at Hartford, on the 27th of this
month, when we may expect. an authorita

GEORGE W. Cess, President pf the. Pitts
bough, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railroad,
is; expected to be the Democratic candidate
for Governor of Pennsylvania next. year.
We copy from the Titusville Herald. The
expectation,. to which it alludes, is by , no
means a general one: However much it
may obtain in Venango and; other'
counties north and west of the Allegheny .
river, that programme is accepted, as far(as'
we can learn,' by but a single citizen of,
Allegheny, and he would be the Clain=
guished citizen' bove named. But, serious
ly, we credit General Gass with too much
sagacity to indulge In any such expectations.
He knows, from much , experience in the
past, that the substantial honors of his party
are not for him. He has too often been
taught that, no matter how flattering the
tales which his own hopes or the crafty poll.
ticians of his party may tell, they are
doomed to an always inevitable die
appointment. And especially now. For
the Democracy feel really sanguine of elect
ing their candidate next fall, and, in that
view of the situation,don't propose to nom-,
bate General Cassat all. He knows it, we
know it, and they know it. Already HEM

mocracy dazzle the eyes of other candidates.
but confident of grasping a solider fruit.
But we shall see in the popular result of
October next,, as in' the aspirations of candi
dates now, that the "world is but a fleeting
show, for man's delusion given."
The repression and punishment of crimes
are chief among the duties of governtnent.
Social order and personal securities depend
thereon. Just in proportion as this duty is
well done is government entitled to esteem,
and in ratio as it is ill done does government
suffer reproach and contempt. • •
One of :the essential conditions' of the"
administration of justice upon criminals is
that it be done by the public, in its own
name, and „behalf, and at the cost of the
whole,-rather than of the special individu
als who have been injured in person, pro
perty or reputation. By this method only
is it possible to avoid that manifest com 7
mingling of personal feelings with public
necessities which is always detrimental to
the respect that the laws ought to command.
In olden time, indeed, each man was made
largely the judge in his own case, whenever
his rights were criminally invaded, or had
the appearance of being so invaded, whether
they actually Were or not; and was made, in
addition, - the avenger of the wrongs he sus
tained,-or seemed to sustain. However well
adapted such a seheme of administration
may have proved in an early and semi
barbarous condition of society, it is palpa
ble, even to the most uncultured apprehen
sion,ln this age and century, that It does
not comport with the nature of modern life.
It is now considered indispensable that all
crimes should: be regarded as committed
primarily against the State, and that indi
vidual reontinents and revenges should be
prohibited, the community assuming and
exercizing the authority of suppressing dis
orders, and punishing all infractions whether
of public or personal rights and privileges.
Whoever has Considered riot the theory
but the practical workings, of criminal ju.
risprudence in Pennsylvania, cannot fall to

changes- are earnestly to be desired. In

No proper prollsiorris made for tire'iraY
meat of District Attorneys. Instead of be
ing assigned an equitable compensation for

only to a miserable pittance. The result is
that; except in a few of the more;populous
counties, no lawyer of [ prominence will ac
cept the position': and it falls, very nearly as a
matter of course, into the possession of the
Youngest and feeblest practitioner. Clearly,
this ought not to be. Puhlic justice ought
not to have arrayed against it, except as in
dividuid interest supplements governmental
prOvltSion, the ablest, most experienced and
influential members of the legal fraternity.
So long as this error continues, criminals
must enjoy a degree.of impunity. Inconsis.

It is an imposition upon a person who has

In one of the counties of this State there

guilt of one or more of the gang, citiL

of the band committed a felony
in a township at some distance from his

A conviction was obtained, and a rule to show
cause why the judgment should not, be set

the verdict sustained. But the prosecuter
Is financially ruined. The costs of obtain-

Either this happens every week in Pennsyl

which, whatever other result they may have,
will certainly eat like canker into their
scanty pecuniary . resources. In multiplied
cases, justice costs so much that parties who
need it, dare not ask for it.
In other States, where this evil existed, it
has been remedied. Provision has been
made for paying District Attorneys such
salaries that lawyers of abundant compe
tency will . take commissions as such; the
necessity for prosecuting witnesses has been
done away with, the Commonwealth as
sinning the right and . duty of vindicating
public justice; informations are privately
lodged with the District Attorneys, who in

wrong has been done, proceed against the
offender, the name of the informer , never
being disclosed. This method shuts the
door against-many neighborhood feuds, per

THE CHARTIERS RAILWAY.
In response to an appeal made to the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company by a Com
mittee appointed at a public meeting held
recently.at Cononsburg, the President there
of replied as follows:
OFFICE PENNA. RAILROAD COMPANY,

GENTLEMEN:* Upon your receiving the

Pennsylvania Railway Company will pur
chase the first mortgage bonds of your
company at an amount sufficient to enable
you, with the proceeds thereof, to complete
your road with single track and sidings,
ready for cars and equipment. '
• Very respectfully, yours,
J. EDGAR THOMPSON
President Penna. R. R. ao.
Thereupon the managers of the Char
tiers Railway Company met and adopted
the following preamble and resolutions:
Whereas, This Company has received.
from the Pennsylvania Railroad Col:ripe - Hy
such assurance of pecuniary nid as
with a proper and vigorous effort on the
part of tide People of A lleghenv and. Wash
ington counties, ensure the early and cer
tain completion of its'railroad on or before
the let of July, 1870; therefore, '
Resolved, That this Company do offer for
sale and authorize the issue of 5,000 shares
of its capital stock at par, and that J. H.
Ewing, of Washington, Penna., be End he
is hereby constituted the agent of this Com
pany to receive subscriptiorui to the said
shares in the form andupon thetermshere
in set forth.
We whose names are hereunto subscribed
do promise to pay to the Chanters Railway
Company the sum of fifty dollars for each
and every, share of the capital stock of said
Corn pany set opposite our respective names,
in such proportions and at such time—not
exceeding tts per share in any period of
thirty days—as shall be determined by.the
President and Directors of said Company.
What remains is simply to have the sub-
scriptions already made transferred to this
new paper, so , as to become binding, the
terms of payment being made more easy
than in the original papers. There is scarce
ly idoubt hilt this transfer will be speedily
amomplished, and this not only from a de
sire-to secure the early completion of the
road, but also from a conviction that under
the arrangement proposed the new stock
will prove a good investment.

Mr. Sherman called np his bill providing
for the air line railroads to New York, to
Pittsburgh and to Ciniinnati. The bill is
very long, occupying aWbut a hair hour in
reading. At its couclutoon Mr. Sheriff .rt
took the floor, and made a strong argu
ment claiming the constitutional right of
Congress to build railroads for the promo
tion of commerce, to or from any point in
the Union. He reviewed the arrangement
of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad In con
trolling the single line connecting Washing-
Aon with New York and -the north, and
asserted that the only object of;the road is
to protect Baltimore interests. He also
alluded to the Camden, and_ Amboy Rail
road monopoly, insisting that -if Congress
had power to give the thirty-six millions of
people in the country a free access to Wash
ington, the final result would be the .re
mcivin of the Capitol. The. Senator occu
pied an hour and,a half in •spe..ale---log,tand

Ages of English and American Statesmen.
The new - t
liglish Cabinet is an exception
ally young , one, the oldest member, Lard
Clarendon. being only 68, while the young
est, the Marquis of Hartingtan, is but 35.
Mr. Gladstone the premier, is 59 ; the Duke
of Argyll and Mr. Fortescue are 45 ; Lord
Kiiaberly is 42; "Earl de Grey and Mr.
Childers are 41, and Mr. Goschen 37.
The average of the whole Cabinet is thus
only fifty years and four months, which is
five years and two months less than that of
its predeeessor. Another peculiarity of the
present Cabinet is the precedence of com
moners aver titled personages. Mr. Glad
stone, as First Lord of, the Treasury, of
course takes precedence of all the rest ; Mr.
Lowe, as Chancellor of the Exchequer,
comes third in rank; ,111 r. Childers follows
him as First Lord of Admiralty; and Mr.

Let us compare the ages of some of our
own rulers and public men with those of
the British Liberal Cabinet Officers.
General Grant is 47, and Mr. Colfax only
46. Andrew Johnson is 61, Mr. Seward,
68; General Schofield , but 38; Mr. Welles,
- 67; Mr, McCulloch, 58; Mr. Randall and
Mr. Browning, 59. We do not know the'
exact age of Mr: Evarts, but he cannot be
more than O. Mr. Wade, the President of
the Senate, is 69; Senator Sumner issB, and
Senator Trumbull, 56. The members of
the House of Representatives are nearly all
young men. Mr. James Brooks and Mr.
E. B. Washburn are among the oldest, and
are respectively 59 and 58 years of age.
Tng London 'Times thinks 'there, is "one
branch of civilization in which the ,Ameri
cans have undoubtedly _set an example to
the world." This Is our free newspaper
exchange system and cheap newspaper pos
tal rates. NO system of "exchange be
tween papers exists in England, and with
no favor from the Government the cost of
such a system would be immense. The
rates of postage, too, are so - high that the
greater part of newspaper transportation is
done by privateenterprise. The postoffice,
says the Times, performs the least possible
amount of work at the greatest possible ex
pense. The cost of a paper is doubled by
receiving it by post. In - view of these facts,
there are some misgivings about the coming
control of all telegraphic lines by the British
Postoffice Department. Unless the Gov
ernment shows more regard for the press in ,
the management of the telegraph the pub
lk will suffer by the change.
Is rr possible that the House will pass a
bill repealing the civil tenure law by a de-.
cided majority. Its fate In the Senate is not
so certain. Hader the bill as it now stands
they had' great deal of power, and It is
supposed they, will on that account resist
the repeal of the law. .

AFFECTIONS OF THE KIDNEYS AND
Diseases of this nature are found to exist In per
sona of all ages. Children. and even infants, are
subject to unnatural secretions of the Kidneys, and
pain in voiding the urine, as well as adults. Espe.
daily is this the case with aged and Infirm prisons,
sad those whose habits are sedentary. Nor is this e
matter of surprise when we take Into cobsideration
thetielicate nature of the kidneys, and the import
ant functions they have to perform. All the super
fluous, unhealthy and poisonous ar'S tte of the systees
must pass thrutrgh the kidneys, thence into the
bladder, and passes off with the units , ; consequently
any obstruction in the kidneys, that wit prevent
OEI. poisonous particles from being thrown off,
will be followed by disease ri f the ct . gaps themserves
and more or less derangement of the whole system.
Among the symptoms of seek derangement are the

welding by Hydraulic Treasure.
Experiments have recently been tried in
the machine shops of the Western Railroad
in Paris, in reference to welding iron by
pressure, instead of by means of a hammer
on an anvil, during which it was found that
while union of the two masses of iron was
effected only superficially by means of the
hammer, a continued steady:pressure had a
far greater effect in causing a thorough
junction. Among other experinients, two
iron bars. one and a half inehesin diameter,
were heated to the welding point and.
brought under , the hydraulic press. The
welding was effected with extraordinary
quickness, the fibres of the iron being
thoroughly intercalated with each other, and
the joined portion of the bars was quite as
strong as anywhere else, a microscopic sec
tion of the joint showing a perfectly homo
geneous texture. ti
