THE Senatorial aspirations of Mr. A.
Johnson find increasing encouragement
in Tennessee. Of his principal opponent,
Mr. Belie Peyton, it is said, b7gentlemen
who served the Union in this State, dur

neither his political record nor his capaci

port of Union Men.
Tau REBEL proposition, in Virginia, to
ignore Gen. CABBY'S requirements as to
the qualification or the members-elect to
the Legislature, seems to have missed fire.
The oath will be exacted, and members
who cannot take it will resign, the Con
servatives relying on their ability to elect
other qualified persons who will answer
their purpdse just as well.
Tint Democratic party is apparently
disbanded in Massachusetts, merging into
another organization which has just nom

He inaugurates the new party with a de

abandoned in accepting the established
factof universal suffrage." That policy
is so fer opposed to what is reckoned as
Democracy ,in Pennsylvania, that we are
warranted in'regirding the party which
supports Mr. Adams as no longer Demo
cratic. Their old friends in this Corn
inonwealth will follow suit next year.
The "dead issues" and the factiori which
clings to them, will soon be lost to sight,

RE-KINDLING THE CAHP.FIRES
A large number of the Federal officers
who were tinder fire at Gettysburg, six
year since; have assembled again upon
the old battle-field, for the purpose of re
tracing Its memorable lines. A hundred
or two of :veterans, shouldering their
crutches and canes, are recounting to each
other the soul•stirring events of that
deadly struggle, for the life ofthe Repub
lic, in order that the historic record may
be made more imperishable.
In these drys, when our people are in
sidiously entreated to cover with oblivion
all that relates to that infernal rekelllon—
its causes, its fluctuating vicissitudes and
the fruits of its last glorious issue, the
treason whith was meditated and the
traitors who plotted it, promoted it or
wished it God•speed—let us be thankful
that we have at least the survivors of that'
loyal miMon of citizens who rallied under
the flag and marched to the drum-beat of
the Union, who can never be persuaded
to forget aught of that great national
feud but its bitterness; who know
how to pardon their erring country
men, who went down under the ordeal
of arms which they had challenged, but
will never, never forget either the match

splendor brthoseVictiiiies by which the
Union was saved, or the names and fame
of the brave men, yet living, or dead, on
the battle-fields, whose toil and blood
rescued American Liberty from extinc
tion. We can forgive the treason and
even the traitors, when we see the works'
of their repentance, but nothing should
be forgotten—nor anything forgiven
which a sincere and practical repentance
does not justify.
We regard this meeting at Gettysburg
with much satisfaction. It is a very
pointed and matter-of-fact protest against
that sham-patriotic 'sentimentalism which
invokes oblivion for the greatest of
crimes, only that a considerable number
of the criminals may find, under its
cloak; some pacific way of attaining by
political , intrigues the ends which! war
was powerless to secure for them. There
were no "Copperheads" at home yester
'day on the Gettysbug battle-field; the are
na would have been strange to them and
the company of veterans offensive. The
only "dead issues" discussed or even
recognized ai this military reunion were
such as the monumental marble en
shrines; why and for what died those
brave men whose blood hallows the Get
tysburg soil, were issues which their sur
viving comrades can never loyally forget
while they live.
It is four years since arms were stacked,
and, let us hope, never to be again grasped
in a fight for American liberty. But the
fire still lingers in the ashes of the Union
camp-fires, and it must never be suffered
to expire altogether, so long as any party
shall exist to defend the theory of the
rebellion, .to palliate its treason, or to
follow the leadership of men who justified
that rebellion at its outbreak, e en.
couraged it by their open or secret
sympathies, and now lament its final
overthrow. So long as the party of trea
son—the party which disgraced our COIR.
monwealth by its . cowardly utterances at
Harrisburg, seven years since—shall con
tinue to exist as a political organization;
even asserting as it does new, its ability
to seize upon the control of our govern
ment, just so long the camp-fires of the
Union must and will be kept alive.
Oar own green hills are to blaze with
them again in September. The Boys in
Blue, of Pennsylvania, will then invite
their comrades, from all over the Union,
to assemble here, to consider some of
those "dead issues" which speak with an
ever•living power of eloquence from out
of the half million graves. of our Union
dead. While this generation of living
men remains upon earth, not a
year shall be suffered to pass
by, without at least one grand
muster of the Boys in Blue. The honor
of the Republic demands, and the true
interests of the Republic will be well
served by maintaining, the annual ro
call of the survivors. - This year's muster
is to be held at Pittsburgh. The exact
date is not yet fixed, nor have all the de
tails of the great meeting been definitely
arranged, but we are authorized and
gratified to say that every corps, brigade
and regiment which ever rallied around
the old flag will be fully represented here,
from every State, and under almost every
distinguished leader. A hundred thou
sand boys of the blue will then salute
the old issues, not dead but living, with
the familiar long-roll of the Union drums.
OUR ROAD TO THE PACIFIC.
When a few months since the Pacific
railways formed a complete connection
across the Continent, the public satisfac
tion in that fact was materially dimin
ished by well authenticated reports of the
very imperfect manner in which the
work had been done. Looking at all the
evidence afforded by the statements of
numerous Commissioners and correspon
dents, it is probable that these repoiis
presented the substantial facts, as then
palpable along the entire line, es
pecially through. the mountain districts.
So the public understood them, and.an
apprehension became general that the
contracts between the companies and
the National Government had been
systematically violated, and the Treasury
in fact defrauded by the bad faith of those
whom it had magnificently subsidized
expressly for the construction of a first
class tine of railway. The few months
since have entirely changed the situation.
The roads were no doubt hastily and im
perfectly built. at many pointS, but there
was not enough of this to justify the
general complaint, while events prove
that the accusation of bad faith was
altogether unjust. The imperfections
complained of seem to have been
only .such \its were unavoidable in
the difficulty of building, with such haste
as the ceuntry demanded, an unprece
dented / length of railway, through vast
deserts, wholly outside of any basis of
supplies, either for material, labor or
food. With the connection of the rails
once made, the Companies have diligent
ly applied all their resources to the per
fection of the work in all other details.
Grades have been leveled, lines straight
ened, cuts filled, bridges strengthened,
ties replaced, trestles dispensed with, sta.
Lions supplied, side tracks added,
rolling stock replenished—and with
such faithful success that the last
grumbling criticisms upon the material
condition of the Pacific Railways went
out of print sixty days Since. This tells
the story as it is to-day. Nor are the
roads finished yet; but with equal energy,
skill and fidelity they will be made first.

tion of the greatest railway achievement
of the age.
In the character of the gentlemen who
have been selected for the immediate au
perintecdence of these two roads, we
recognize another mark of the sincere
good faith of the corporations. Of Mr.
TowNB, who hris taken charge of the Pa
cific end, we know only that he has ac
quired high repute as a railway manager
in the Northwest, and that he has been•
trained to the business by years of service
under Col. CHARLES G. HAMMOND, the
new Superintendent of the Union Pacific.
That training gives a good certificate. It
is `seventeen years since the writer
of this knew Col. H. as then
the Western Superintendent of the
Michigan Central Railway—a position
which he so filled as to wing for himself,
by the general 'consent, repute as the
best railway officer of the day. After
wards, taking charge of the Chicago,
Burlington and Quincy line, he organized
and has steadily maintained it at the head
of all the Northwestern railways. His
present transfer to the Union Pacific sim
ply means that this road also is to become,
under his sagacity and experience, the
first of American railways, not only in.
magnitude but in every point which can
give solid value to rail Way property. He
is not the sort of man to be identified
with anything else.
The Pacific railways are in the right
hands, and will be made first•clasa roads,
after ail and before all. The experience of
the present summer effectually dispels all
the public doubts.
WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY
We have received the catalogue of the
West Virginia University for 1869.
Nothing speaks better for the real pro
gress of our country, than the existence
of such institutions in a state, parts of
which were among the wildest and most
uncivilized portions of the continent only
a few short years ago.
The old school at - Morgantown has long
been well•known, and numbers of Pitts
burghers own it as their alma mater.
That school_ was the germ of the present
University. The citizens of Morgantown
contributed in grounds, buildings and
money about $50,000 towards its endow
ment. The Legislature of the State has
appropriated $16,000 a year for the same
purpose, and the congressional grant of
lands has been accepted by the State and
also added, thus making a very fair en
dowment, and placing the institution at
once in a position where much good can
be accomplished, and where it has every
requisite opportunity for holding its own
in the constant rivalry which seems to
exist among the numerous and constantly
increasing colleges of this country.
There are five departments already in
operation in the University—the Prepara
tory, Literary, Scientific, Agricultural
and Military. One hundred and fifty
four students are at present taking advan
tage of the excellent opportunities here
offered to them for obtaining a solid edu
cation. Twelve gentlemen compose the
faculty, with the Rev. Dr. Menrin at
their head. Two military organizations,
a volunteer labor corps and a normal
class are among the regular classes of the
college. A. library has been begun, and
already consists of one thousand volumes.
a reading room, where numerous news
papets are kept on file, is open to the stu
dents, and the foundation of a museum
haildready been laid, which promises to
grow into a very useful branch of the
college. We do not speak thus at length
of this growing institution on account of
its excellence or-of l's promises, but be
cause its very existence evinces a desire
on the part of the State to give her eons
every advantage which education can be'
stow, - and sets an example which might
profitably be followed by many of our
other new and growing Commonwealths.
'BRIGHAM Years . ° is really in serious
trouble. The sons of Joseph Smith, the
original Mormon leader, appear upon the
Salt Lake stage, and demand, by right of
succession, the head-ship of the "church."
Young has always, until very recently,
professed to hold his charge in trust for
one of these ions. David Smith, purpos
ing to resign it to him when he should be
of mature age. The young aspirant to
supreme authority now presents himself,
claiming his rights and vigorously de
nounces polygamy and many other bad
practices of the old Mormon leader. A
The latter, however, is loth to give up
his power, and not only has denied the
sons of Joseph Smith the useof the Tab
ernacle in which to preach, but has abso
lutely forbidden the people from going
to listen to them. The Gentiles in that
city have a hall which was built for re
ligious service* at the time Gen. Connor
was in commatld at that place. This hall,
now used by I Episcopal ministers, has
been placed at the service of David and
his brother. The Mormons, in spite of
the prohibition and threats of Brigham,
flock in crowds' to hear them. Brigham
is said to be much alarmed, and does not
know how effectually to end this new
difficulty. The! traditions of the Church
are all' in favor of David Smith, and the
dissatisfaction is spreading far and wide.
It is even said that it had reached the
very family of Brigham himself, and
that some of them believe the latter
should give way. If the Government
will protect these young men it may
prove the best means of solving. the Mor
mon problem.i. Taey denounce poly
gamy as not a part of the true Mormon
faith, and they preach loyalty to the
Government and the abolition of the on
erous tithing system. Though they have
been.but a faw weeks in Utah the effect is
apparent,and it is reported that they have
alread7 a large number of adherents.

to show that he is not fit to be Governor

delude laboring men into voting for him
by declaring that be was once one of them

he displays a weakness the people of

The Frauds on the Farmers.
Numerous farmers in the northern and
western part of New York have recently
been swindled by a fellow who has been
practicing a variation of the old "Patent
Right Swindle." ' The Buffalo Courier
thus describes the mode of operating:
A business looking personage would
present himself in a country town, and,
having procured the name of some Bulb
stantial man, he would at once proceed
to nay his respects to him, informing him
that he represented an important patent
right interest in a gang plow and a pota
to digger, agricultural implements which
must in time command a large sale. No
'capital was required, and no great loss of
time was demanded by the business, Our
patent man simply proposed to send to
our country, friend a number of machines,
from the sale of each of which he was to
retain for his services as agent the sum of
$25. The countryman seeing no possible
chance for losing by the enterprise, but
on the contrary' regarding the thing with
favor, inasmuch as it promised a very
handsome return for an ordinary show
of enterprise, accepted the agency. A
contract was, jf course, necessary; it
was aroduced by the manipulator of gang
plows and potatoe diggers—a printed
blank, only-requiring a moment to fill it
up. It stipulated, as we learn,
that the countryman should accept
the agency, and perform all the condi
tions we have set forth, and of course his
signature was required. The printed
matter on the contract extended so far
down the sheet that a strip, of paper had
been attached in advance, evidently to re
ceive the name of the new agent. The
signature given, the negotiations were
considered closed and the man withdrew,
leaving his agent to wait in expectancy
for the appearance of the machines which
were to augment his wealth. Now it
happened that the slip of paper on which
the signature was penned lapped the con
tract underneath, being fastened to it by
what we conceive to be a delicate mucil-
age; and this paper, so attached, was
nothing more nor less than a promissary
note for a certain amount of money, or
was subsequently made one. Another
method was resorted to and brought fre
quently into use, though how successful
we have no means of knowing at present.
The contract being made as already re
ferred• to, the agent was required to sign
a blank note something like the following:
diz months after date (or sooner, if the
money shall be realized from the sale of
-), I promise to pay to -or
bearer for value received.
Any objection to signing this note was
met with the offhand explanation that, of
course, if the machines were not sold, the
note never came, due. The parenthesis
and the speech of the operator won the
signature to a note due; in any event, in

The Chicago Republican, in alluding
to the recent rise in the price of lumber
in that city, which usually takes place
about the middle of August, takes advan
tage of the opportunity to caution the
people of the West against the lavish in
roads upon the pine forests of the lake
region, and declares that the stock phrase
"exhaustless," as applied to them, is nn
true. The lumbermen, it is asserted,
see, year by year,
the accessible timber
spots receding from the water courses,
and logging is now done several miles
away from streams that used to find their
way darkly through splendid tracts of
pine. Year by year the serious inroads
of the axe are turning large areas of the
pine region into the barren and useless
waste which the lumberer leaves behind
him. The 16,000,000 feet of pine now
on the Chicago market, it is argued, strip
ped twenty.five hundred acres, it being
the rule that pine lands now do not aver
age over six thousand feet per acre. The
receipts in Chicago in 1868 reached one
thousand millions of feet. According to
the above rule, two. hundred thousand
acres, or over three hundred and twelve
square miles of pine lands were cleafed
in the single seasoa of 1868, to supply
ihe Chicago market alone. When the
other lumber markets of the West are
also taken into account, it is estimated
that many hundreds of square' miles—
whole counties in area—were stripped of
a source of wealth which it would require
half a century of growth to repair, even
were favorable conditions of planting and

Trlchum—lta Appearance In Chicage—
Famifles Taken Sick.
The Chicago Tribune says:
There is but little doubt that that terri
ble little parasite, the trichina, has finally
made its way to Chicago, and. unless ex
treme caution is observed, will become as
great a terror here as it was to the people
of Germany, some three or four years
ago. The cases that have appeared so
far can be traced to a single source, and it
.is possible that no further danger exists
or need be apprehended, but the mere fact
that the creature is here at all, is enough
to excite the worst apprehensions. The
following are / the particulars relating to
the cases thus far observed :
On last Saturday Dr. Hessert was called
to treat the wife of a German named
Sachser, employed at the Illinois Central
Car Works, residing at No. 168 Arnold
street. The woman complained of being
"sick all over." She said tha.; her head
ached, that her bones seemed ready to
fall apart, and that each one seemed to
possess its own individual vain. While
the doctor was listening to her story he
observed that every member of her fam
ily, consisting of husband and nine chil
dren, looked sick. and that the father and
four of the children seemed unusually in
disposed. Upon inquiry he found that
the youngeat, but two years of age, had
been ailing for two weeks from some un
and that the husband, a girl
of fifteen and two boys aged thirteen and
fourteen, had complained of being indis
posed for some days. They were afflicted .
with diarrhoea, complained of pains in
the abdomen; their limbs had become
stiff, while the muscles of the face and
those of the eyes had been considerably
swollen. They also, complained of head
ache,"pains in the chest, and experienced
difficulty in breathing. At first the doctor
believed the symptoms to have been
caused by poison, and he accordingly
questioned his patients regarding their
food. He learned that all had partaken
of some raw ham, and the cause was soon
made clear to him. The symptoms were
those of trichina, and he began to treat
them accordingly. Before the medicine
could take effect, however, the patients '
had became much worse, and the father,
who on Saturday was tolerably well, on
Monday, was fairly prostrated with the
disease. Yesterday several of the pa
tients were yet in considerable danger.
The hain, which was but part of a whole
one, has been procured from Mrs. Halber,
residing at No. 156 Arnold street, and
upon inquiry it was also discovered that
she was also suffering from the same
cause. and was under the treatment of
Dr. Merkier, of No. 377 State street. Her
symptoms appeared less aggravated,
however, owing to- the . fact that she had
cooked her meat before eating it, while
the others had partaken of it in a raw
state. The physicians then held a con
sultation, and both agreedias to the cause
—trichina. Unfortunately, no part of
the ham, except a little of the melted fat, •
is left for examination, and that does not
suffice for the purpose. The physicians
have endeavored to prevail upon some of
their patients to allow them to possess
themselves of small po , tions of the mus
cles of the arm, but with this tender ie
quest none of them have been willifig to
comply. The Board of Health has been
placed in possession of the facts here nar
rated, and a thorough investigation is
-now being proceeded with under the
auspices of that body. When completed,
the detailed facts will be given to the
