.A.rrun'all the bother made by a por
tion of the Eastern press in the interests
of the Cuban revolutionary junta, it
transpires that our Minister at Madrid
has intervened no further than to tender
the good offices of the Republic as a me
diator for humanity's sake betiveen Bpsin
and her rebel colonists. No menaces have
been intimated, nor any alternative pre
sented, which could constitute a just
cause for offence to the Spanish Govern
ment. Herein, the President and his ad
visers are faithfully in accord with the na
tional sentiment. The people will neither
support nor :excuse an intervention
of any sort which should involve us in
war or in the addition of any sum to the
public obligations. It is gratifying to
observe that efforts to drag the Aaminis
tration in advance of the popular judg
ment have, for the present, utterly failed.
THERE are strong points of contrast
between Republican and Democratic
newspapers of the highest type on the re
spective sides. Perhaps as strong a one
as any is afforded in their treatment of
opposing candidates. Reading Republi
can journals uniformly concede, anti with
genuine heartiness, whatever good there
may be in a Democrat, brought forward
for a representative position, while lead
ing Democratic newspapers almost in
variably find nothing in any Republican
candidate which merits a kind word.
This difference of treatment does not re
sult from the difference in the two classes
of candidates, but from the lack of gen
uine manliness in the Democratic organs.
Their power consists in vituperation and
• abuse, and they would not know them
selves, or be known by their followers, if
they should make candid admissions as to
the good personal characters and intel
lectual competency of the • men they o p-
Tnn Ohio Democracy propose to re
peat the game upon which they succeeded
two years ago. While making the canvass
ostensibly on the Governor and other State
offices, they are really aiming to secure
the Legislative majorities again, herein
being substantially the entire authority Of
the State. The gubernatorial office is one
of but little more than nominal influence;
its incumbent has no part in legislation,
and but a limited sphere of Executive duty.
Amusing their opponents with a show of
a contest upon the State ticket, the tactics
of the party are to be effectively directed
to the continuance of their legislative
control. A. recent circular, intended to
be secret, from the Democratic State Com
mittee at Columbus, urges this policy
upon the local committees. All the close
and doubtful districts are to be secured
by every needful means, including as
much - colonization as can be done without
detection. In some of the stronger Re
publican districts, they hope to divide our
friends, by nominating mixed tickets,
largely composed of disaffected Republi
cans, if they can find such. Fortunately,
the scheme has been seasonably exposed,
and its failure is beyond a doubt.
Democratic tactics are the same in our
own State alp. Neither Mr. Packer nor
his friends expect his election, but they
are playing their game as if they were
confident of their ability to carry a major
ity of the Statelienate, if not of the other
House. This game cannot win, if our
friends in the Beaver and Bedford dis
tricts do their duty. And we are assured
that they will.
THE NEXT LEGISLATURE.
Opr• readers will be interested in a brief
reference to the state of the legislative
canvass throughout the Commonwealth.
The Senate consists of thirty-ffiree mem
bers, holding office for three years; one
third of whom go out each year. At the
late session, we had a Republican major,
ity of three. Of the eleven retiring Sena
lore, seven were Republicans and four of
the opposition. The resignation of Sen
ator Ennzrr, leaving a vacancy to fill
this year, requires us to elect eight of the
twelve Senators next month, to retain
our recent majority. Of the twenty-one
holding over, ten aro Republicans and
eleven Democrats. We are sure to
carry the sth, 16th, 17th, (double)
25th, 26th and 28th, and we have
a much better prospect for gain
ing a Republican Senator in the lst (Phil
adelphia) district, than for losing the
20th (Bedford) district, in i which the
local difficulties are subatantially ad
justed. Thus we may rely, , :With the use
of our customary vigilance and a regular
vote, upon at least seventeen Senators
next winter. One Is not a large majority,
but it is sufficient for all practical pur
poses. We shall, however. elect Mr.
Stutzman, in the Bedford district, and
probably Mr. Watts will Willi the Phila.
adelphia district also. ,

EDUCATION OP THE PEOPLE.
The Idea of popular government neees
sarily implies 'the democratic education
of the people; that is, the education of
each at the expense of the whole. This
system of instruction has taken deep root
in Pennsylvania, as also in a majority of
the States. It encounters opposition from
the Bishops and Clergy of the Catholic
Church, who have been zealously engaged
for some years past in devising a system
of parochial schools for the children of
- members of that communion. In justifi
cation ok this opposition it is urged that
the public schools are "godless," which is
to day that no special system of religion
is taught therein in connection with the
various branches of science.
Catholic authorities admit that the losses
of that church by the secession of young
people, mainly born in this country, is
very large. This loss is attributed in
whole or in part to the common school
system. So far as that system is the nat.
ural outgrowth of popular government
we comprehend that it contributes to
the loss complained of; but only in the
same sense as other features of republican
institutions. We perceive. too, how
keeping Catholic children out of the com
mon schools, and giving over their secu
lar instruction to persons appointed by
church authorities, and amenable only to
them, may conduce somewhat to their
remaining Catholics. But, we neverthe
less apprehend that the general sweep of
those ideas which lie at the foundation
of our government, cannot be essentially
impeded by such a device,
It was announced from the pulpit of
St. Paul's Cathedral, last Sunday, that
Oatholic parents would be required to
withdraw their children from the public
Schools, and that refusal so to do would
bring down on the recusants the censures
of the Church. This is a pretty strongi
measure, but we do not see that outsiders
have cause to he concerned at it. So
hing as a man voluntarily remains in con
nection with any society, religious or sec
ular, he is bound to conform to all its
legitimate rules and regulations. If he
becomes seriously dissatisfied his remedy
is in withdrawal.
If the pbint shall.be pushed hereafter
that the Catholic population, having
taken their children out of the public
schools, ought to have a ratable propor
tion of the school moneys, or else that the
school tax ought to be abrogated, that
question will have to be settled independ
ently. The public school system will not
be given up to suit any religious denomi
nation, and while its advantages are open
to all, none will be released from con
tributing for its support. So plain and
indispensable a democratic principle can
not be relinquished to accommodate any
class of citizens. But, this principle is
so vital, and its reasonableness so appa
rent, that we cannot yet be persuaded
that any organized effort will be made to
IT IS proposed to endow and establish
hchair of Journalism in Gen. Lee's Col
lege in Virginia. This is a step in the
right direction. Lawyers, doctors and
ministers of the Gospel are obliged to go
through s special course of preparation
before they are admitted to preach or ,
practice, while journalists are frequent
ly, as evinced by their imprint, alto
gether without the necessary, natural or
acquired, ability and eduCation which
would fit them for their positions, al
though—the profession of.which they are
members exerts a very much wirier in

A sum-07os family carriage, of the

could buy a cottage home in some of the

Can any circumstances render it proper
and in good taste for any man to' ride
about in the homestead of a puor family
or in a western farm? Can any coach

for a coach?,. We suppose the answer
will be that they can, but it does'nt seem
quite right for anybody t . pay it.

kr is the fashion now, and probably
will be for some time, to follow in the
wake of the English Saturday Review,

Saturday Beview is concerned, we can i
not object to this, for the articles ;are
bright and witty, and as tney are written
by a woman are probably good pen-pho
tographs of We English women of the
period. But when the American copy
ists endeavor to write original articles of
the same nature, they throw themselves
open to the ridicule of their countrymen,
who, having mothers ana sisters, wives
and daughters, know that,with insignifi

better and nobler than most American

PHILADELPHIA depends for warmth
in winter, and for fuel generally,
upon anthracite coal, and $7,000 have
been raised in that city for the benefit of
the Avondale sufferers. Pittsburgh uses
almost no anthracite, is utterly and en-i
tirely independent of the eastern coal
regions, and her people, and if we were
the selfish money-bound people we are
accused of being, we might feel thor
oughly satisfied in doing nothing to aid
the widows and orphans of those un
lucky dead. But Pittsburgh has never
yet failed to dip a very large hand into a
wide opened purse when worthy charity
appeared, and though no return may be
looked for, though no interest may as
upon the principal thus invested,
we have little doubt that Pittsliurgh will
in this, as In every case, fully sustain her
reputation, and contribute liberally
towards dashing the frightful prospect of
starvation from before those hapless
widows and orphans. •

There has been a slight lull in the `
citement at Parker's Landing on account
of a dearth of new "strikes." Within
the next ten days, however, from twelve
to fifteen wells will be completed and
tested. If only a moderate degree of suc
cess attends the testing of these wells, the
excitement will undoubtedly boienewed.
Petroleum has been discovered on
Bear river, Wyoming Territory, and ex
tensive preparations are making for its
development by experienced miners from.
Pennsylvania. , The oil is black and
about 28 deg. gravity.
Probably the most imporLantnew well
that has been struck within the last two
months, both with regard to the exten
sion of the producing territory and the
quantity of oil obtained. is the well on
Kean run, owned by Messrs. Arnold &
Phinney, to which we have previously
alluded. This well is, without doubt, on
a continuation of the narrow belt or vein
running north by west from the Vera &
Blake well on the J. Pierson farm. This
vein was traced through the J. Pierson,
Niagara and Baney farms; but a farther
continuation of it was not found . until
the Arnold & Phinney well was struck,
although about $40,000 or $50,000 was
expended in prospecting the territory
south of the Baney farm in search of it.
This well is located on the Mallory farm
and on Kean run, about a half mile from
its confluence with Cherrytree run. Itis
only twelve feet in the oil bearing sand
rock. Pumping was commenced on
Thursday night, and next day the pro
duction was at the rate of sixty barrels
daily. By the striking of this well at
least one hundred acres of territory, on
which 25 to 75 barre' wells can be ob
tained, have been added to the Cherry
tree run district. .

The Union Depot was the scene of a
pleasant presentation ceremony, last
evening. The affair was in the hands of
the friends, together with the employees
under charge of J. H. Jones Esq.. Master
Carpenter Western Division of the Penn
sylvania Railroad. The gentleman has
been connected with the road
for the last seven years and
and by his urbanity as a man and
skilled as a mechanic, has won the
respect andconlidence of at, in token of
which ho was made the recipient of a
handsome sewing machine and elegant
cabinet organ.. The sewing machine
purchased of Colonel James Espy,
corner of Market street and Fifth
avenue, is a superb specimen of
the celebrated American Button hole
overseaming pattern, with mahogany
cabinet case, bronze plate, and highly
finished—one of the finest articles of the
kind we have ever seen. The cabinet
organ, of the Mason Jr. Hamlin pattern,
of which Messrs. Mellor , dr, Hoene are
sole agents in this city. with five stops
in Imitation of different instruments,
and the human voice, tremolo—the most
perfect imitation o f human voice—
was enclosed in an elegant rosewood
case, beautifully polished, and bearing
the inscription: "Presented to J. H.
Jones' as a token of respect by his
friends, and employes of the Western
Division P. R. R.
The presentation ceremony occurred
in the ladies' parlor of the hotel, John
H. Kerr, EAR.. in behalf of the donors
tendering the testimonials, in a neat
speech in which he referred in..compli
mentary terms to the position which Mr.
Jones had so ably filled, and testified to
the general esteem in which he was held
by officers, employees and all with whom
he had intercourse. The recipient mod
estly expressed his gratitude and thanks
for the expression of good will and res.
petit, and hoped that future relations
might be as pleasant as the past had
been, and that all might continue to
work together hereafter with mutual
love and respect.
At the conclusion of the ceremonies,
Mr. C. C. Mellor tested the organ in a
few choice selections to the satisfaction
of all, after which the company adjourn
ed to the spacious dining ball and sat
down to an elegant and bounteous re
past prepared under the supervision of
Mr. E. S. Unger, the worthy text, who
received a flattering vote of thanks at
the conclusion of the entertainment.
The company finally adjourned, after
spending some time in pleasant social
intercourse with "Auld Lang Syne,"

pressed the pleasant occasion upon the
remembrances of all who had the good
