with an unbecoming and unwise neglect.
We may remind one r readers that the sub

tributary waters of the Mississippi has
been specified as to be a leading question
for consideration at that meeting. Is

here to this end, but we do not suppose
that an affair of such substantial conse

that an organized "Board: of Trade" is

nothing to be done in any of these quar

Convention. The - city press has done its
duty in invoking the public attention to

there, it will be the fault, and very likely
the loss, of the class more directly inter

tln the same connection, we have
also to speak of another Convention to be

To Pittsburgh, this view must
appear particularly forcible, since our

Again, we urge upon the proper au
thorities the duty of providing for some
just eitYmesiiion of our opinions, and of
the. : claims pf our leading interests, at each

We hope to find that capacious hall fill

publicans. They will hear a Speech re
plete with facts to be relied upon, with
unanswerable arguments, with the most
instructive reminiscences of political his
tory and with exhortations to duty which
will go straight and strong to the honest
convictions of every Republican who
shall sit there facing that eloquent record
which our loyal city made In the late
years of trial. Go, reader, to the meet

you good to sit awhile and study the po

reflect for an hour upon what Allegheny

did it, why she did it, and whose treason
made it necessary,- Then, perhaps, you
will be ready to talk about new issues.

citizens, which is ' printed in full in the
Wheeling Intelligencer. In view of the
approaching election, for members of the
State Legislature, they urge, in a dispas
sionate and logical statement of the exact
political situation, the adoption of a lib
eralizing policy in the gradual abrogation
of :all restrictions upon the franchise.
They advocate the immediate repeal of
the test-oaths now resting upon lawyers,
suitors and school-teachers, the initiation

voters' tesoath, which, it will, require
two years fb accomplish, and such a mod

election in such mode as to ensure a miaor.
ity representation in each board. These
measures are defended in the Address, as
only-in accordance with the spirit of the
hour, and as indispensable alike to the
material prosperity of the State and to a
continued Republican predominance.
The case is unanswerably put, both in
the Addiess,..and in a very forcibly writ
ten editorial article of the Intelligencer.
The movement has our heartiest good
Wishes, as well as oar sincere conviction
of its complete success.
We have heretofore adverted to the ex
citing dangers that the XVth Article may
yet fail to be ratified by the requisite ma
j oritrof the States. The situation begins
to attractaie attention of cotemporary
journals The assured confidence in a de
sired result which many of them have
expressed gives place to a juster view of
•the'actual peril. The Philadelphia In- .
guirer remarks :
Twenty-five States can be counted oh'
with considerable confidence, although
even that number is 'not absolutely cer
tain. Four more, or twenty-nine in
all are needed. Virginia, Mississippi and
Texas are expectpd to swell the list to
twenty-eight. The vote of either Cali
fornia or Tennessee would complete it,
but -meanwhile the whole subject is sur
rounded with various difficulties and in
volvements, and the dispoSitlon of the Do
inocracy to repeal the ratifying acts the
moment they gain legislative power in
any State, makes delays dangerous, and
shrouds the future with uncertainties.
California held her , election yesterday.
At this writing, we are without advice of
its issue. From Tennessee,.we learn, by
way of Washington, that Gov. Sax.rxn
a6sures his friends that he shall convoke
the present Legislature at once, for action
upon the Article. Re seems to believe that

amendment, but recognizes the fact of the
general doubt on this point,and thinks it
Wiser to make the matter sure. Wiser, it
certainly is. These assurances from the
Governor, sustain the impressions which
we have taken from the course of events
at Nashville. Indeed, it becomes the
clearer that we were right, yesterday,
in presuming that the suggestion origin.

that city was held at his de

party. We ,have no doubt that it has
been explicitly understood and agreed
that the re-assembled Legislature shall-
_ .
not take any other action, of a nature to
trench upon any adverse decisions of the
recent election concerning other gnes•
tions ot local policy. In ratifying the
Article, fortunately, the popular judg
ment, as lately given, sustains the Legis
lature heartily. The effect of such action,
in healing the rupture in the Republican
organization of the State, cannot fail to
be most favorable, while its National In-

Statements are current that Gov. SEM'

undisputed and palpable, bat few of our

This, however, does not preclude the
active and constant exhibition every
where'of jealousies between the two. na
tionalities. In New York, the Irish and
Gerniaru3 do not harmonize within the
Democratic party. Elsewhere, as here,
they are 'widely -separated by political
lines. Evidence of this was afforded by
the developments connected with the
German celebration of the Fourth of
July, when strong but insidious efforts
were made, in the interests and by the
especial organ of the Irish Democracy,
to inflame public feeling against a class
of citizens who, politically, are known to
be nearly all Republicans. The design
was palpable, and It very fortunately
As for this movement against Mr.
Belmont, the funniest thing we have
seen was the grave statement, in a Pen

Governor Hoffman's friends oppose Bel

therefore inimical to the aspirations of
Hoffman for the next Presidential nomi.
nation of the Democracy.' We can see,
in this original proposition, where the
laugh comes in,- when we remember
that "Young Greenbacks" was in last
year's Convention, notoriously the victim
of Mr. Belmont's aversion to the theory
of repudiation, and that the subsequent
nomination of Seymour upon that objec
tionable platform probably cooled the
partisanship of that eminent Hebrew
financier, who thenceforth united 'cor
dially in the successful movement to save
Hoffman as Governor, by sacrificing Sey.
mour and Blair in New York! If Mr.
Belmont if. for Pendleton, now, a won
derful change must have come over his
political preferences. So far, the journal
to wihich we allude has the exclusive title
to the discovery.
Says the New York Post:
There is a serious dispute in Tammany
Hall; a quarrel which may have grave
results. The Germans compose full two
fifths of the Democratic party, if not a
greater portion, in this city::: They are
increasing rapidly. and out of proportion
with the other foreign-born citizens.
The Irish are falling off in nmubers.
The patronage of the party and , its
leadership have long been monopolized
by the latter, as the appointments and
legislative nominations show. This has
been a subject of complaint with the
Germans, and now there are, indications
of a revolt. There were signs of discon
tent in the Legistature last winter and In
1868; and the "Gorman element" is or

will and must. Then the Companies

the hazard of inciting strikes and a re

wages of the miners would have fallen
with the prices of coal, and no one could

panies propose to renew and perpetuate
their monthly sales of coal by auction,
there could have been no question as to
the real price of the article.
"In our view, it is the true, permanent
interest of all concerned to fix ajust and

transporter, shall each receive a definite,

It is easy to see and to say that eapital
and labor ought to hold cordial, and hence
profitable, relations to each other. It Is
abundantly evident that such relations
between capital and labor in the anthra
cite counties would result well for all the
parties immediately concerned, and for
all persons who depend for fuel upon that
region. Theorizing on this subject is
not difficult. Actually to promote the
desired consumation has practically been
found to be hard. It may be that capital
has sought to get the better of labor; but
it is just as true that labor has endeavor
ed to get the advantage of capital. The
\ Tribune, instead of contributing to bring
about a good understanding between the
contesting forces, has only aggravated
troubles which at best would have been
sufficiently serious.
busineas man whose opinion is
worth regarding pretends that a definite
proportion should not exist between the
wages of labor and the sum for which
the product of labor will sell. But per.
plesity arises whenever an attempt is
made to determine what that prdportion
ought to be. If capital seeks to throw
all or the larger part of the risk of loss
upon labor, it is quite as true that labor
is not content unless capital is made to
assume an undue share of the hazards.
The Tribune persists in talking in favor
of "the basis" proposed by the miners,
but has been careful not to tell its readers
what "the basis" is. It has gone so far
atsto state that ozie.fltth of all that the coal
should be sold for at tide.water was

phrased it, we are "for Protection for the

measure of partiality to special sections of
the community, but as a national policy,
equally beneficent to all. But we canno
assent to a "basis" that excludes domes
qc competition by • combinations, while
foreign competition is excluded by im

dency of the miners' "basis," which the
Tribune exhorts the proprietors to ac—
cept. Does this comport with Its theory
of Protection? If yes, does it expect the
people of the United- States to stand
by it? This is a point of such
vital importance to the general discussion
in which our contemporaiy is engaged,
that it ought at least to devote a single
paragraph to it. We cannot refrain from

Yfby this concealment of so essential a
particular? All persons concerned in the
coal trade, - or who aro familiar with the
details thereof, know that this condition
is absolutely Inadmissable, either on the
part of the . coal companies and individual
operators !or the public. See how this
condition necessarily operates. At mid.
winter, when contracts are entered into
for the delivery of coal through the fol
lowing year, the price may be seven or
six dollars a tun; which is all the law of
supply and demand , will admit. - Early in
the spring, by reason of over supply or
falling off in demand, the price goes to
$5, and then a strike occurs, sending up
the price to . $l2, and wages in pro
portion. Companies and operators can
not evade their contracts, but are forced
to fulfil at great loss. This happened this
year and last. Yet the Tribune demands,
if it understands the import of ite own
language, that the companies and opera.
tors shall consent to the repetition of this
experiment. To accept "the basis" pro
posed, is to encourage strikes,. and to
make the price of eJal . uniformly high
and oppressive to consumers, jeopard
izing all the industries depending on
coal; and those industries constitute
much the greater part throughout the
whole country. Ought toilers in most
other departments to, be put to this dim
advantage, that toilers in a single interest
may thrive 'altogether beyond the common
measure of remuneration?
But the Tribune is at fault, under
another aspect of this case. The opera
tors in Lehigh county who accepted "the
basis," were compelled to recede from it
at the end of a month. They Could not
go on under it, for the plain reason that
no margin of profit was left them. If
any reason exists why the case of the
Luzerne companies would have been dif
ferent, we have failed to find it, after the
most diligent search.
The Tribune assumes, In the face of
the must clearly established facts, that
the miners would - adhere scrupulously
to "the basis." At the first adjustment
they demanded ten per cent. more than
"the basis" entitled than to, and this so
flagrantly that all disinterested persons
were constrained to say that H they did
not recede, all confidence in them would
be destroyed.
So far "the basis" has proved unsatis
factory to both miners and proprietors;
the miners wanting more and the propri
etors less. The same oppugnation is dis
closed as under the ordinary system of
The Situation In Virginia.
A Richmond dispatch says: A gentle-
Man belonging in one of the two Walker
State Committees has bad an interview
with Gen. Canby, in which that official
declared the only terms he had to pro
pose were that all ineligible Members of
he Legislature should resign,' and, that

to Congress, postponing all action till,
that body revie edthe matter and gave
final directions. Being questioned as to
why he had not installed Governor Wal
ker, he replied that he would have done so
ere this, but, that when he issued his cir
cular to the members of the Legislature,
inquiring ari to their ability to take the
teat oath, the Conservative State Com
mittee interfered to prevent responses,
and that he considered the continued
active existence of that committee as a
standing menace to him and reconstruc
tion. He would never, as long as he
could avoid it, surrender any department
of the State Government to the practical
control of a clique composed of men
having such antecedents, and originally
organized in open opposition to every
measure of reconstruction.
Senator Morton and Bonde.
The Senator is now dealing terrific
blows upon the head of Ohio Democracy,
where the greenbeck issue - is distinctly
made. The platform of the Democrats
in that State on this point lays down the
doctrine that the holders of these bonds
must receive greenbacks in payment, or
nothing. In the ablest speech the Sena
tor has yet made, he disposes of this sub
ject in a most masterly way, and coming
as it does from a disciple of Thad. Ste.
yens, rather than Jay Cooke, it deserves
especial consideration, He says:
When the Democratic party have here
tofore promised to pay the bonds in green
baks, they have not referred to existing
greenbacks to be collected by taxation
for that purpose, but to the manufacture
of new ones in, sufficient quantities to
pay off the debt which would make them
all worthless, and repudiation thus fall
not only upon the bondholders but upon
all the people into whose hands these
greenbacks might dome. The two reso
lutions t4ken together present a clear and
I unmistakable declaration for the repudia•
tion of the whole national debt. The
conditions under which this repudiation
I is to take place are thin and transparent,
and do not at all disguise the main pur
pose. The Democratic party in Ohio,
as in all the States, hate the national debt.
They hatedthe purpose for which it was
contracted. They advised the people not
to lend their money to the Government
for the purpose 'of suppressing the rebel
lion; and havingl done all in their power
tc prevent the debt being contracted, and
tc prevent the use of the means by which
tie rebellion mieht be suppressed, it is
not at all strange that we should find
them, under various excuses and pre
texts, declaring their opposition to the
piyment of the debt.
Southern Politics.
The editor of the Richmond Evening
News has been informed by "a gentleman
who ought to know," that General Canby
regards the test oath question as out of
his hands—it having been referred, by
the authorities at Washington, to the At
torney General of the United States. He
will obey instructions in regard to the
matter, whatever the instructions may be.
The same gentleman is of opinion that
there will be no meeting of the Legisla•
ture until after Congress assembles.
The Richmond Enquirer of Saturday
says: "General Canby, it is now well
known, has no idea of giving the seats of
those members of the Legislature who re
fuse to take the test oath (in case the oath
is required) to the defeated candidates.
There must, therefore, be an election to
fill the vacancies."

R. H. Kerr, better known here and

He is a shrewd politician, and would not

of Gen. Cass in Allegheny; and as that
wing of the party feels in Allegheny it is
fair to presume it feels throughout the

A Wrsconsix paper (the Racine
Journal) of the 25th Institut, has the foi'
lowing item: "Early Friday morning
Mr. Henry Taylor, a gentleman living
just out of the city, hitched his carriage
horse to a post near his bee hives, and
went in to breakfast. While eati n g he
heard a terrible commotion in the yard, -
and on looking out to ascertain the cause,
he saw that the bees (five swarms) had
attacked the horse. The poor beast was
frantically endeavdting to break loose,
uttering at the time the most horrible
screams of agony. Mr. Taylor rushed
out, cut the halter, and endeavored to
drive this swarms off, and in so doing was
stung in a most frightful manner about
the head and arms. The horse lived only
about an hour after he was attacked; his
agony was fearful to behold."

The Canadians Excited by au American
Flag—Terrible Outpouring or Wrath.
On the night preceding Dominion Day
some graceless wag climbed to the top of
a lofty flag-pole at Woodskick, near the
railway station, which was erected at the
time of the visit of the Prince of Wales,
and nailed thereon an Ainerican flag,
bearing the black-lettered". inscription :
"Annexation." No person could be
found of sufficient temerity to climb the
pole and tear down the rag, particularly
as not a few persons . were positive that
the pole was rotten, and that the life of
any party making the attempt would cer
tainly be forfefted. , There the obnoxious
motto fluttered for nearly two months, in
full view of the crowds of travelers pass
ing daily on the railway, and the rept-.
tation of WoodstoCk was not likely to
benefit by such a display. One of
the telegraph workmen, accustomed to
climbing poles, was taken up to Wood
stock to perform the s job, but after climb
ing about two-third - 33'50t the height, he
declined to ascend futither, and declared
he would sooner jesigm his situation.
Shooting was next fesorted to, and a con
siderable amount of poWder was em
ployed in the effort to destroy,the hateful
emblem. The flag and ids° the top of the
pole were pretty well shattered by this
means, and "Annexation" was oblit
erated from the rag at least. On Monday
last a youth in the employ of a patent
stove-drum; manufacturer, happened in
the town, and hearing of the matter he
very readily tendered his services to "go
for" the thing. The gallant :lad per
formed the act handsomely, ascending to
the top of the pole without difficuly, and
tearing off the last shred of the tattered
flag. The question is, who was the in
trepid individual that "put pp the job?"
