SwediiihMission.. The Wheeling Intelli genar makes a most damaging exposure of that gentleman's political career, and eitahlishes, beyond any dispute, his en tire unworthiness to represent the Repub. • licanism either of West Virginia or of anyWkere else. ,We trust that the result wM confirm the intimation, in Washbar, ton dispatches, that he will he rejected, if notwitherawn. TEL Pittsburgh Tilt of the i2th de clared that the Connecticut Democrats in Convention' "unfortunately passed reser lutleamin favor of paying the bonds in gold;” which "lost them a couple of thou sand 'votes" No such resolutions were "passed," and we admonished our neigh bor of its error. Whereupon, the Post of the 14th explains that resolutions were adopted , 'ignoring" the Tummy -Plat form. That don't 81l the bill! Instead of .saying one thirig, the Convention merely'failed to say something else It dodged the issue, as the Port dodges the truth. Tan .a.DTERTIBTEIG AGENCY of Messrs. Con,"Wirrrenzaa. & Co., Philadelphia, we commend to our friends as one of the most trustworthy and honorable firms in the country. They transact business on a fair and basis, prompt to meet obligations, mindful of contracts, and deal. generously throughout. W e have had much to do with them in ad. Talking, and know livhereof, we speak in recommending them in. high 'terms to the public at large. We were glad to learn, through our pleasant and high. toned friend, Mr. Bx4ra, of that firm, who recently paid us a visit, that they are doing a fall share of trade, and in large measure prosperous and successful. DEATH OF AN OLD MERCHANT. We regret to announce the sudden death, by paralysis, of Mr. Jeers P. Tama; at noon, on Tuesday, at his residence:on Cliff street. In 1819, when a.boy,Mr. Taus emigrated from Ire land and settled In this city, where after wards he became generally known and esteemed'as the accomplished and'popu lar Teller of the Merchants and Manufac turas-Bank Relinquishing that office, he engaged - extensively in the boot and shoe trade, from which business he re tired but a few months ago, in bad health. His death, though not entirely unex pected, will be lamented not only by his stricken family, but by a large circle of relatives and friends. THE BRIDGE RUISARCE. It is understood that the Baltimore it Ohio Railroad Cothpany carried all their point)) in the decision of the bridge-quer. lion by Congress at the recent' session, succeeding in smothering all action upon the .recommendation)), from the Commit tees, for the protection of the navigatioh rights of the people on the 'Upper Ohio. The 'result is that this corporation pro ceeds, under She pre:oxisting law, with its-obstructions at Bellaire and 14rkers burgh. and will "rush" them to comple tion, or so near to it, by December as to settle the questioiprictically and perpet ually in their ovSn favor, it Is said that this might have been prevented, but that it would have cost a good deal of money.

Beyond an elaborate speech by Mr. SUM NER, there was little or no discussion, that speech presenting, under a general consent, the entire American case. The usual injunction of secrecy has been removed so far as to authorize the imme diate publication of that speech, and it will be laid before the country at once and in full. :The telegraph affords a meagre synopsis of its positions, but we prefer to suspend our comments, until we have the complete text of the argument which thus officially presents the Ameri can view of this seriously important question'. In the meantime, it is proper to remark that the unanimity of Senators must be accepted as a decisive expression of public sentiment, and that the - policy of the Administration is certain to be conformed to the line they have taken. Whatever may have been the variance of opinions in this country, respecting this business, we have at last a settled policy for all to accept, —and it will be acquiesced in accordingly. There will be the less hesitancy on this point, since the final adjustment of the; questions in dispute need not be anticipated at early—day. OUR LOCAL OFFICES. Hon. RUSSELL Ennurr, accepting his appointment as Collector oflnternal Rev enue for the •XXIId District, will .enter upon his new duties on Monday next. He has resigned his trust, as one of the State Senators from Allegheny county, the resignation to take effect on Friday, the 16th. Elected in -October, 1867, his Senatorial term would not legally expire until 1870, the succession being deter mined at the October election of that year. As the present session of the Legislature is to close on the 16th, Mr. EIIIISTT will have served but two-thirds of the Constitutional term. In his retire. ment, the people, not only of Allegheny, but of the whole. CoMmonwealth, will lose a Senator whose superior in integrity, fidelity, discretion and influence, both personal and official, has never been known at Harriaburg. We will add that his constituents resign their Senator with a regret, which is only tempered by their grateful sense of that wise discretion which confides an important Federal trust to a man so capable, and to a Republican so deserving. The new Collector, T. W. Davis. Esq., takes his office on Saturday, the 17th. Mr. DAVIS receives this appointment in conformity to the wishes of a very large majority of our Republican friends, and with the expressed preference of our leading business circles in his favor. We doubt if Mr. DELANO his yet given a Col lectorship to any gentleman presenting stronger papers than were filed in behalf of Mr. DAVIS. These papers represented almost the entire financial, commercial and Republican elements of this important district. We need not add one word to their recommendations. The community already know that, Collector DAVIS will justify their endorsements and the choice of the Department. The new Collector of the Port, Taos. Sum, Esq., also enters upon his new ditties with tfie be ginning of next week. This. gentleman was recently our gity Controller, and in that post manifested a special capacity for official business. As Collector and De pository, be cannot fail to give the utmost satisfaction The Senatorial vacancy must be filled at the election of next autumn. We hear a number of names of the probable can didates, viz: Messrs. B. B. CLuLa;GEo. WiLsoii, Taos. HOWARD, T. A. Roman . and.Gro. H. ANDERSON. Other gentle men may also be suggested. THEN AND NOW. When, early 'in the year 1866, Mr Ax- DREW Jox6som flagrantly manifested his secret intent to betray the party which elected him to the Vice Presidency, and to dishonor the country which was al ready lamenting his accidental promotion to its highest office, there no longer re ' mained any plea upon which such of our Republican friends as were inclined to be timid and conservative, could continue to palliate or excuse that man's political de linquency or his personal infamy. The result was that, with a very few excep tions, who were either office-holders or journalistic pilgrims to the shrine of place and profit, the entire body of the Repub— lican party confronted his Administra tion, before the expiration of that year, with its hearty contempt. . Bat nitre bOnnti to' remind our read ers, in the interests of Utah, that this journal had not waited for the events of all that year, to indicate its proper line of policy towards President JonnsoN. •As early as in. dannaly 'Rh we were alto gether satisfied, that he. was meditating the most unqualified treachery to his party, to the loyal North and to the Union element in the rebel States, and that nothing was to be gained by tempo rizing with the political situation, in the delusive hope of a future harmony which would be sinipirimpossible. With this conviction,' the Gazarrn took a decided •position at once. It was the first Re publican jourial in this cou ntry to : break ground openly against Johnsonism. Enjoying at that time the pationige of the Executive de partments, this source of profit to its pro ;prieters was 'instantly . cut;ol/, By order, the Genic = wonitbe flint &pub-- can journal in the Country ',;4) be shtt 'nut from an ifPniel:PAtfnutie 0tth0: 4 44 1 . istrat 44i. 4 .1!,04 1 .initaFq2ol4- : ,ITT§B . r.Ttg)Ec G44r,T .

Their ad. ver sements will have a circulation whi Shall give to the Treasury its ey's worth. Bo far, it is to be a fair business transaction. Beyond that, the Republican State of Allegheny, and the Republicans of Western Pennsylva nia will be gratified, by this official recog nition of a journal which has never swerved in the maintenance of their fa vorite opinions. And, still beyond all that, a philosophical and discriminating public wilt incline to see; in this three years' retrospect, a palpable illustration 1 of the old maxim that time brings about its jest retributions. TAXING PETROLEUM. The effort being made in the Legisla ture to impose a tax on crude petroleum meets with hearty condemnition from all personi interested in production. The original, proposition to tax the oil one cent per gallon was so amended as to reduce the tax to one-quarter of a cent per gallon. The operators want no tax, and declare if one be imposed that it will do great halm to their interests and dam. age the • general prosperity of the State. The Titusville Elena, the organ of the oil interest, in commenting on the pro posed taxation, says with much truth and forix: The revival in producing in West Vir ginia, and the discovery of a deodorizing process by whiph the Canada oil, hither to next to worthless, is made as good as that produced' here, have brought , into competition with the product of Penn sylvania the production of, and the large stock of oil in' Canada, and a greatly en larged production in 'West Virginia. With all this in view t the tax bill is one of the most ignorant pieces of legislation, detrimental alike to the beat interests of the State and Nation. • , What kind of legislation is it to op. press a great industrial interest at a time when - that interest needs protection? What can the Senators and Representa tives be thinking of when they vote to impose an oppressive specific tax on Pe troleum, when the State does not need the revenue to be derived therefrom? Who wants a horde of tax.gatherers and. inspectors, an army of warehouse men, numerous and immense State bond ed warehouses, to hold the oil, and to collect a tax of which there is no need. From the determination that has been apparent in the Legislature thus far to pass this most odious measure over the remonstrance of every person engaged in the pretrolenm trade in Western Penn sylvania, it is scarcely to be expected that those who have engineered the bill and forced it thus far will let go of it until it is finally passed. The only hope of the producers is, then, that the Governor will veto the bill, and to this end no effort should be spared to bring the matter in its true bearings before him. A sorrrnmtw journalist thus wri . teac.on cerning the good points secured to South ern society by the elevation of General GRANT to the Presidency: But what a change has the last few months witnessed! General Grant's elec tion buried the "lost cause" beyond hope of resurrection and established reconstruc tion on a firm and lasting basis; and now that the "madness of the hour" is passing away, we do not believe that there are a dozen men in the South—outside of dis appointed political aspirants—who would have it otherwise. The traveller who stops at the St. Charles Hotel, New Or leans, must now look in vain fur the pic tures of Lee and Jackson which but re cently hung in the 'office. The New Or leans Republican is on the newsboy's stand in the rotunda every morning, and fully half of the guesta at the hotel are from the North; many of them are capi talists In search of investments, We are to have a new steamboat - on , the lower Mississippi this tall; not named in honor of some General of the "lost cause," but. fitly named after the beautiful city, "Natchez." The newspapers have dropped the "so called" in speaking of the public officials of our State, and no longer lard their leaden with "Radical tyranny" and "Northern despotism;" but in their stead we have articles encouraging immigra tion, developing railroad projects, com plimentary of grain movements via New Orleans, urging the planter to become seltsupporting, and so on; while that sterling newspaper, the New Orleans Elpubikin, b bel/ liberally' patronize d ,. by business men ofall classes, and-the newsboys are no longer threatmed with discharge by rival papers if they'lawk ft, on the street; and Republican newspapers are springing up all over the South, and there is no one to "molest or make them afraid." God speed the` day when the last vest ige of the old intolerance will have disap peared from the South, and in its stead let us have the,leti)lerance which indus try, honesty and thrift have for idleness, thieving and shiftlessness. Tan Nnw Yonn Licersweramg has had before it the subject of railroad freight discrimination, on which the Utica Herald says: Both a maj o rity and a minority ~ report have been m ad e on the question. Both reports admit the existence of the, evils complained f, and the justice of the: complaints. The majority .report says: glint there is n the opinion. of the un peiin dersigned goo cause of cumplida on the. 'part of the p lc at differen d 4olnts , on: these, railroad ea. The mingtioa in fik+ot tif 66 epointi which atelirlaed 1 MI . , „ competing pobits; and consequently ope. rating againstrother points' less favored, seems to us to be manifestly unjust. We can see no remedy for this evil. unless it may be by fixing a maximum rate of freight, which shall restrain the corporations from compelling one section to make up deficiencies covered by cheap rates at competing points." The minority report indorses this view, and says: "While we are of the belief that a sound, judicious and equitable 'pro rata' is the most conducive to that end yet in deferemie to the views of the majority, faintly expressed that the remedy for acknowledged evils lies in the direction of the 'maximum' principle, we have, with some care and labor, per fected a bill on that basis." As any chance,-whibh places restrictions on the wholesale extortions practised by our leaking railroad corporations, will be an improvement, we trust the maximum bill will become a law. After it has been in operation a short time; perhaps some of our weak-kneed legislators will muster up courage enough to take another 'step, and give us a thorough pro rats la*. CITY AND SUBTIIRBAN. DEMISTS LN COUNCIL. Proposed Pharmaceutical Association— Pilatelane and Pharmaceudats—Re pon of Committee. • At an informal meeting of the drug gists of Allegheny county. held March let, the reaolutions passed by the County Medical Society, relative to filling prescriptions and the - selling of patent medicines, were discussed, and a com mittee appointed to prepare a report in reference to the matter. Another meet ing was held last evening at the Western University, for the piarpose of hearing this report and organizing a Pbarmacen tical Association. • The meeting was called to order by Joseph. Abel, Esq., who presented the report of the Coinmittee, which was a reply to the resolutions passed by the County Medical Society. The first reso lution, relative to the employment of as sistants, and entrusting the compound ing of prescriptions to - those only who are properl ualified, both by experi ence and dustion, was heartily en dorsen. In reference to the second reso lution, requesting druggists of the coun ty to decline the sale of the articles knownsapatent medicines, the CommW tee stated. that while every honorable pharmaceutist disapproves of patent medicines, he could not at present successfully , Carry on his business by discarding , them altogether. but recommended - that the assortment of these articles be restricted to the small est possible number, and the use of all fair memo to restrain their manufacture and sale. The committee further stated that druggists were willing to cooperate with physicians to have proper legisla tive enactment upon the subject. The third resolution. requesting them never to prescribson their own responsibility, or refill a prescription except upon au thority of the physician with whom it originated, was considered by the com mittee, who coincided in the first part of it. , In regard to the second clause, about refilling prescriptions, the com mittee reported a resolution passed by the American Pharmaceutical Associa tion which opposed the indiscriminate renewal of prescriptions, bet • thought restriction to a single prescription im practicable. In the matter, however, the Committee could see no reason for act ing contrary to this provision, if the agreement is a general and unanimous one, and If the physicians and public are informed of such an arrangement. With regard to the resolutions passed by the Medical Society that physicians would do all they oouid to promote the inter ests of such druggists firs complied with the requests in the resolution adopted by them, the Committee state that it appeared to them that, this resolution meant that physicians would only patron ize the experienced, competent and hon orable pharmaceutist. If such was the in tent the Committee was pleased and trusted the resolution might be adhered to. The report was read and after some disetuolon laid over for final action until the next meeting, to be held Wednesday evening of next week, at which time a fotmal organization of the Association will be effected. The,mneting then adjourned. Bow It Was Accomplished. Mr. Perry C. Dant, a fanner, was swindled out of four hundred dollars yesterday in this wise: Tuesday even ing, accompanied by hie wife, he had taken the train at Philadelphia bound for Janesville, Wisconsin, via Pitts burgh. Just before the train started a genteel looking young man stepped into the oar and took a seat directly in front of the pair. The train moved on and the young man's tongue commenced to move also. In a short time he had intro. duced himself to the twain as bound tor the west, and delighted to have their compauy to relieve the tedium• of the journey. His name was J. B. Austin, and he was extensively employed in business in Chicago. Being an exceed ingly agreeable conversationalist, he suc ceeded in winning the confidence of his two auditors long before the train reached Pittsburgh. Jest as the party were step ping.off the train, at•the Union Depot, stranger No. 2, merchant of Pittsburgh, stepped up and politely requeattd Mr. Austin to pay a httle bill, amounting to several hundred dollars. A.natin pulled out his pocket book, but found himself short of ready gash, haying only a draft for three thousand four hundred dollantimd six !twenty dollar gold pieces. Theie were not sufficient, but after some consultation Mr. Dean, the farmer, Was prevailed upon to loan his friend font hundred dollars to pay the bill, taking in exchange the dra ft and the gold places as security, both of which the suppmed Pittsburgh merchant pronouneed' all right, but which proved to be all wrong. The farmer and his wife were next seated, in the car of a Weat- ward bound train and told to remain until the return of • their. friend, who disappeared with his creditor for the purpose of getting the account prop erly squared. They waited for some time, but finally stated the' circumstan ces to one of the'officials connected: with the 'Depot, who prouounced the affair a swindle l a fact which quickly,. became palpable, to the minds of the, 'victim& Fortunately, however, they were ena bled to continue their journey, having purchased a through ticket before starting.

This piece has been running! for over two months in Philadelphia,, and was on the boards for the same I length of time in Chicago.

PITTSBURGH THEATRE.—Mr. Taylor continues to draw immense crowds to the Pittabtuth Theatre, and doubtless will do so until his engagement terminates. There are many other attractions, but Taylor is, of course, the chief attraction. Ducks are very useful fowls, in their way. Sometimeao however, their way leads them or their owners into trouble, as was the case yesterday. John O'Neill and Frank M'Farland occupy neighboring tenements in Ormsby borough. O'Neill has a garden plot 'attached to his premi ses, in which he takes great pride. Mo- Fathead:has, a lot . of ducks equally dear to him. The ducks , it is alleged, have a way of enterlSig p'Neill'sgarden plot, and damagingdeetroying the plants, much to the digust and irritation of the owner. O'NeliL to prevent this intru sion yesterday, spent the greater portion of the day in repairing the , fence be tween the 'two premises, but, according to his statements, he had hardly tin 'shed the job before it was torn down again by McFarland and his wife, who threatened him with all kinds of bodily harm if he dared to erect it again. Fear ing to proceed further without profeation' of-the law, O'Neill came before Alderman McMasters and lodged informations for malicious mischief r and surety of the peace against McFarland and his wife.
