IT IS 11101'08ED, in interested quarters,
to increase the tax on whh3ky at the next
session of Congress; That the proposi
tion is seriously made, is evident from the
increased activity of the distilling interest,
which is driving the business just now to
the utmost. The plan is to have a large
stock on hand, which is to be exempted
from the advanced taxation. With the
adoption of the higher taX, whisky on
hand would be advanced in price, to the
handsome profit of the owners. 'When it
is found out that the present tax is faith
fully collected, it.may be well to propose
an increase, provided that increase be
assessed also upon the stocks in store.
But this is not in the progratnitie. The

of speculators. We shall see how . matey

Remember the mass -meeting of this
evening, in \ the Allegheny Diamond, to
hear a speech from Judge BINGHAM, of
Ohio. This eloquent orator has ever been
a favorite with our Republican friends,
crowds of whom will be on hand to-night.
WILLIAM PITT FEssxrdrai, a Senator
from Maine but a statesman whom the
Republic will mourn, has closed his
earthly career. He expired Wednesday
morning, at his residence in Portland.
His health had long been. impaired, but
the attack to which be has finally suc
cumbed had not a long duration. Indeed
a recovery was hoped for until within a
few hours of his decease..
The deal Senator was a man of shin
ing mark. His abilities were extraordi
nary, his experience in public affairs was
one of the most elevated statesmanship,
and of the broadest usefulness, and his
influence with his countrymen, exerted
in public station, was as powerful as it
was meritorious.
Born October 16, 1806, he was the nat
ural son of General - Samuel Fessenden
and of a mother wno subsequently mar
ried a respectable citizen of New Hemp.
shire, and who was living very recently,
if not now. The, child was not dis
owned, but was taken home by.the fath
er's parents, reared by them, and by the
father, with the regular issue of his own
later marriage, 'ale bar-sinister upon his
birth-right alway !being steadily ignored.
Indeed, lie was always recognized as
the favorite son of General Fessenden,
and as the flower of the family in the
general public view.
Admitted to the bar in 1827, he entered
public life, as a member of the State Leg
islature in 1831. Preferring his profes
sion, he declined further ser vice until
1839, when he was again chosen to the
same body. In 18 . 40, he was, elected a
Representative in Congress, serving but
one term. In 1845, he served one year
in the Legislature, and again in
1853 and 1854, and in - the latter
year was transferred to the Federal
Senate, serving therein two terms and
retiring, in 1864, to take the Treasury
portfolio, after the resignation of Secre
tary Chase. In 1865, he was a third
time elected to the Senate, holding the
office until his death:
Mr. FESSENDEN was a Whig from the
start, when Maine seemed to be Demo
cratic to the core. He took an active
-part in State and National politics, being
a member of nearly every Whig National
Convention, up to the disbandment of the
party in 1852, and he proclaimed himself
still a Whig when, two years idler, he
led the movement fusing the Whig and
"free-soil" elements of Maine into a vic--
torfons majority in that State. His dis
tinguished position in, the Republican
party naturally followed.
His political influence was entirely
due to the public appreciation of his abil
ties, and of his personal integrity of char
acter. What this appreciation must have
been, may be judged of from the fact that
he connected himself, at an early period
of his professional life, with the agency
for an, immense landed estate, the largest
private ownership in Maine, with which he
was so constantly brought into collison
with popular prejudices that, with less abil
itysnd less of an honest repute, he would
have become the - most unpopular man in.
the State. Yet he braved these prejn-,
dices so successfully that he was respected
wherehe was knot loved, and was con-
Mandy honored and trusted by a com
munity which he never cared to concili
ate by a kindly disposition or genial man
Mr. FESSENDEN'S national reputation
was fairly won by his splendid profes
sional ability, and by his distinguished
public services. We need not remind
our readers of-his career either as a Sena
tor, or at the head of the Treasury D epart
ment. In the latter place, he exhibited
a genius for finance which Commanded
universal adthiration. As a Senator, he
came, years ago, to the lead in he Na• .
tional - conncils, and, although his leader
ship was not always followed, it was
always' respected even by his political op•
ponents. His successor may have more
personal friends, with more of the quality
for attracting them, but Maine cannot re -
place the Senator whom she has lost.
It is supposed that the fire at the Avon
dale Colliery originated from the ventil
ating furnace at the bottom of the shaft,
and, communicating with the woos-work
of this shaft, rushed rapidly to the upper
surface and seized upon the immense tin
der-box frame-work of the breaker and
engine -houses, covering the mouth of the
mine. The fire below ground could not
have been serious, fot• the rescuing parties
have found no obstructions to their ex that cause. This horrible
slaughter seems to have been wholly the
result of the outside conflagration,
large quantities of the buining mate
rial falling into and choking the main
gang-way, so tat escape was impossihle
for those within.
Six hundred widows and orphans mourt ,
the dreadful holocaust which, in an hour,'
swept husbands and fathers into eternity.
A. more terrible calamity never shocked
the people of Pennsylvania. We cannot
restore this small army of dead to the
living world, but we must take order that
no similar event, from the same cause,
shall be suffered hereafter to dishonor the
wishind paternal government of a Chris
tian Cointnowealth. It b quite pmati-
cable to ,proyide the ,effectivi-xeelationf_
Which hll maitre, under ell contingen
cies, the absolute safety of the main en
tries and shafts of all underground worli
ings. Indeed, it is singularly a reflec
tion upon the legislative forecast of
our people, that their enactments have
not already amply provided for
the regulation and protection, in
the interests of the public safety, of the
lives of the very numerous population
who work underground in this mining
State. Beyond a few limited provisions,
wholly directed to the regulation of
property interests, and a single section of
the criminal code for the punishment of
malicious injuries to mining works, Penn
sylvania has not a syllable of legal pro
vision expressly for the especial protection
of life to her large mining population.
A well-digested system of drainage, ven
tilation and security from fire, or other
interruptions to safe egress from below,
should be directed by law, and enforced
by a competent inspection under the State
authority. Without such a system, the
public has absolutely no safe guards what
ever against the repetition of this dreadful
experience of Avondale. The ignorance
or the cupidity of colliery proprietors,
and the irresistible necessities of labor
for bread, will continue to risk the
chances of fresh catastrophes. Adopt
such a system, and its terms could not
fail to reach and correct such a glaring
recklessness as this which covered the
mouth of a colliery, employing hundreds
of persons, with an immense tinder-trap,
on the side of a mountain, far out of the
reach of any effective means for putting
out a fire, and so , framed that the touch of
a match would be sure death to every
miner below. ` ,
Two hundred men and boys suffocated
like rats in hole! Six hundred widows
and orphans wailing and starving above
ground! Does not this fearful business
disclose, to the people of Pennsylvania,
some need for investigation and for future

When the Philadelphia Board of Al.
dermen was engaged on Monday, upon
the list of canvassers for the October
election, objection was made by Mr.
Packer's friend, McMullin, to the Fourth
ward appointmeits. Why and how he
objected, the annexed report shows:
Alderman McMullin said: They can
never go there. I will bet a hundred
dollars on it.
Alderman Jones.—We will have to
move the ward out, then.
Alderman McMullin.—When the day
of election comes we will crowd the place
with men.
The Chair.—Alderman. you should be
ashamed of yourself. I am surprised
that you make threats.
Alderman McMullin.—On election day
'don't let them - go in. They will be mur
dered if they do.
Alderman Cloud moved that the reso
lution as read be adopted.
Alderman McMullin prcposed • as an
amendment a long list of names.
Alderman Cloud moved to lay the
amendment on the table.
Alderman McMullin characterized the
motion as being unfair.
The Chair said the motion was not de
' batable. -- •
Alderman McMullin. Well, there will
be trouble tliere then.-
' The Chair—The gentleman should be
ashamed of making threats.
Alderman Jones asked that the room be
cleared. , -
Alderman Mc3lullin—Yon had better
attempt to put them out; you will see
what you will get. There will be three
or four thousand men let loose on the
day of election.
The motion to lay upon the table was
agreed to.
Alderman Jones called the previous
question, which was the adoption of the
resolution. Agreed to.
The resolution as read by the clerk,
was then agreed to. The Chair declared
the names as the officers to conduct the
election in October.
Alderman Me.3lullin—You will have

We copy, without charge, the adver
tisement of the N. Y. Citizen. a Demo
cratic print, calling for some sort of a na
tional platform of Democratic principles.
The public consideration is solicited.
Says the Citizen: .
"We hear nothing as to what are Dem

A lIIIIIDRED different reasons are given
for Prince Arthur's visit to the New Do
minion. He is to be King of Canada,
&c. The Qabec Mercury says that every
thing is said but the plain fact, which is
that Prince Arthur is destined• to take
high rank in the army, but he cannot
properly be promoted until he has seen
foreign service; consequently he Is sent
to Canada to perform that duty. The

Prince Arthur has lately been gazetted,

[Corretpcm deuce of the Inttsburah Gazette.)
ST. Lops, Sept. 4, 1869.
Glorious weather. everybody says, and
the voz populi is right. • And it is par
ticularly glorious just now, when news
is scarce and topics for conversation and
correspondence rather in demand. Let
us be thankful that we have it to talk
about, since it seems there are some mis
erable countries on the globe where they
have no weather, at least none to speak
of. They have climate instead, and have
to be contented with the same invariable
thing one day and another the year
round. To remark that it is a fine day,
where all days are cut by the same pat
tern, is ridiculous. Dr. John W. Foster,
in his recent volume •on the' physical
geography of the, Mississippi Valley,
makes an allusion to this subject which it
is a pity he did not develop I further. He
says, ridiculous as the custom is, (i. e.
commencing conversation by talking
about the weather,) it is nevertheless the
bridge by which we cross lan otherwise
impassable barrier. The inference is that
when people don't talk about
they don't get ' over the barrier, and of
cours social intercourse is impossible.
It wo uld be curious to learn that this is
in y degree the fact, and to
be able to trace to so upper
parently insignificant cause some of the
remarkable peculiarities of tropical na
tions. Are the social and political condi
tion of those nations, their slow progress,
their constantly recurring revolutions,
f their religious bigotry; are these the
results of not being able to talk about the
weather? This is suggestive: Who
knows what developments in political
and social science may grow out of it ?
Next to the weather comes the subject
of amusements. And here let me • say
we are not behind any state in the Union.
• For example, what do you say to a grand
exhibition of lance tournament and coro•
nation, to be given under the auspices of
Capt. L. P. Van, the well-known profes
sor-at-arms and horsemanship, which is
going to come off here October Ist, and
will be a high-toned affair of the first
water. Please observe that no knight
will be admitted without a uniform as
becomes a knight. The lances to be
of equal length (9 feet), and the rules
and regulations will be strictly enforced.
.0 you benighted (not be-knighted) Pitts
burgliu s, what wouldn't you give to have
a professor-at-arms and horsemanship en
tertain you with one of these chiv
alrous exhibitions of lance tournament
and coronation, with lances (and uniform
as becomes a knight) 9 feet long, and
the rules and regulations strictly enforced?
And then, the tournament over, every
one can go and get a Phantamarona.
which Prof. Montarici, the great Photo
manzist, will furnish to parties, ladies
and gentlemen, sending fifty cents end a
three cent postage stamp, description of
person,- age, color of-eyes, and lock of
hair. Who would not give that for a
Phantamarona? But Professor Montarici
does more than this with his Calorin
Spiritual Telegraph, which imprints the
date of marriage, even to the hour, on
the fabric containing the likeness. ThOugh
not viable at first, directions will be sent;
by which means an instantaneous im
print will be brought out on the- surface.
There's infermation worth having. 0,
sighing swains and longing maids, what
will you give to know the address of this
wonderful person, who has . "arrived in
St. 'LOIIiS direct from Bordeaux?" (A
direct importation, 'you see). I shan't
tell you till I know whether for this
notice he will dead-head me with a like
ness of my future husband or wife.
But after all, what's a tournament?
What's a Phantamarona? What is even
'a regular old l fashioned gander-pulling by
the side of what is to-day really our most
popular amusement, nigger-killing? Here
we beat the world.
The following paragraph relates to a
mysterious disappearance at New Mar
get of a negro boy named Dave, who had
been arrested charged with an attempted
outrage a little girl: '
"He was taken from the custody of the
officer by seven men, said to have been
'seven feet high and twenty-two inches
between the eyes,' and spirited away to
some unknown land. A Democratic
exchange says: It is supposed that he is
now 'an angel'—or something else."
Match the refined' wit of that, if you
can. • -
Up in Fulton, a few nights since, a
negro who had (been arrested on simple
suspicion of a similar crime, was taken
out of bail in the obliging absence of: the
gentlemanly jailor, and .hanged spientifi.
sally on a tree. The boys`:who did it
had a jolly time. A day or two after an
..lrishman was arrested for . the same
offence, cominitted upon' a colored wo
man. An ignorant Yankee, who hap
pened to visit ,the town, suggested hang
ing the Irishman, but' was indignantly
informed by the Mayor that he probably
didn't understand the customs of the
List week in Fayette, a chivalrous fel
low ' playfully threw some water on ,a
crowd of niggers. One of, them impu
dently remonstrated, 'whereupon the high
• toned gentleman drew a revolver, fired
two or three shots before any took effect,
but finally as. Dick Turpin served the
coachman, he
"—put a couple of ball, in hie nob.
And perwalled on. Win to stop."
He was arrested, but of course could
no: be blamed for such an accident, and
was discharged in time to attend the fu
neral, which he did with his revolv
er. You see we are- at no loss
out here for amusements of a high
character, and that things are altogether
lovely. To be sure the niggers, don't
like it much,_ but, what's, a nigger made
for, any how ? I - suppose the fox don't
like to be hunted, but is'nt that a noble
amusement. And having no foxes, must
we abstain from sport? Verily not.
