IT rs NOT all pleasant sailing among
the Republicans of this Commonwealth.
Their County Committee in Somerset, by
an unanimous vote, have requested Mr.
STIITTAtAIf to resign the nomination for
State Senator which he holds. What he
will do in the premises has not been an
nounced. In Philadelphia, the Evening
Telegraph, which has always sustained
-an excellent reputation for Republican
ism; demands the expulsion of STORES,
Dims, Bum', ADAIRE, CLOUD and
Bono from the legislative ticket of that
Tin political "reaction" this year is
fall of comfort for the opposition. In
Maine, on a light vote, their candidate is
beaten by only 12,000 majority, while
they have actually gained one Senator;
electing three of the thirty-one, and will
have perhaps thirty-five of the one hun
dred and fifty representatives.. The in
.creased Republican majorities in Colo
-rado and New Mexico ate calnily borne,
in the consoling reflection that the Con
gressiorial delegates thus choien are to
have voices merely, without votes, at
Washington. Certainly, a very hopeful
THE rumor of a hirge detalcation by
the recent management of the Methodist
Baok Concern, in New York, has been
painful to the general public, and quite ir
respeetive of any denominational lines. It
was regarded as a sadly convincing proof
that no station, no purity of personal
profession, was safe from the contagion
of the unavoidably prevailing mania of
wealinesa and faithlessness among those
holding pecuniary trusts .: The public
will welcome, therefore, with peculiar
pleasure, the semi-official declarations, of
a New York journal, that the rumor 'Al
laded to has no foundation in fact.
Innunts to be settled that the Presi
dent will not hurry in selecting a succes
or to Secrettiry Rawlins. Two or three
journals, inflamed by their suspicions,
have sought to create the impression that
an exciting contest was progressing as to
who the individual should be; but no facts
have transpired to warrant that sugges
tion.. So far as is known, the President
lies been left entirely to his own judiment
and preferences, except by the newspa
pers alluded to. These have been resolved
that if they could not dictate who should
be, appoint, they would occupy a po
sition to claim among the uninitiated that
they virtually determined that one person
should not.

for Gpveinor, has been formally charged

WE ARE not ready to credit the aver
ment that our Minister at Madrid has ex
ceeded his instructions, or to believe that
he has given, to a proud and sensitive
nation, any just cause for,_irritation or
complaint. His communications to that
government may not have been couched
in the most obscure verbiage of diploma
cy, and he may have expressed the hu
mane sympathies of the American people
with a trifle too much of soldierly frank
ness. • It is simply incredible that he has
indulged in any menaces, or that he has
for a moment forgotten how much was
due to the dignity of the power near
which he stands, representing the Repub
lic„, When his correspondence shall be
opened to the judgment, of his Govern
ment and to the criticism of his country
men, we have a hearty faith that even
those journals which, like the GAZETTE,
have faithfully protested against any
Cuban embroilment, will find therein
;ping to merit a substantialreproof.
Wrrum a day or two past, the press
reports two instances where, by the inten
tional displacement of railway switches,
trains have been thrown off the track,
and ;much damage done, fortunately with
out loss of life. This yields further proof
of the need for the-exercise of constant
vigilance by the companies, in guarding
against the malicious mischief with I
whiCh their property and the public safety
is constantly threatened. It proves,
moreover, that even the vigilance which
the best managed corporationa require
from their servants does not always suf
fice to protect their lives from the inter
ference of the evil-disposed.. We were
told, the other day, by a highly responsi
ble official of one of our most important
railways, that he did not dare to let the pub
lic know how constantly and fatally the
safety of their tiains was imperilled by the
tampering to iffhich their switches are
subjected. Thtuf far the vigilance of that
• Company's servants has detected and
foiled the meditated crime in every case,
but it is apparent to any experienced
judgment that no precautions can always
avail. Yet the railway companies are
• •
expected, and perhaps not unreasonably,
to take all the responsibilities for the ab
solute safety of travelers; insuring them
against all casualties, whether originat
ing in the misconduct of their own ser
vants or the malicious interference o
outside rascality.
FATHER HYACINTHE. one of the most
popular and effective orators of the Ro
man Catholic Church, and for years the
favorite preacher in the gayest metropolis
in Christendom, astonishes the world
with the announcement that he with
draws from his allegiance to Rome, pro
testing against the decrees and practices
of the church as not according with the
principles of christianity. Representing
the Gallician church, he rebels against
ultramontanism, and leads a new move
ment which must convulse Catholicism on
the European continent. With the reli
gious element of the French people,
Father Hyacinthe has for years enjoye_d
an unexampled influence. Effectively
he has been more than Pope,
than the Holy Father himself, while his
faithful subordination to Rome was never
before seriously questioned. This letter
of protest is regarded by - the French press
as a great religious and political secret.
This means that the Gallician church re
vives and strengthens its old demand for
ecclesiastical independence of the Romish
See, and that the Ecumenical Council,
which is to meet at the Vatican, is 'to be
something more than merely- an imposing
display of dignitaries, since it will now
have serious work to do. The text of his
letter to his former spiritual superiors spe
cifiee, doubtless, the obnoxious practices
and decrees against which his solemn
protest is aimed. These particulars'have
not reached us, but it is to be presumed
from the language of the French journals
that they include equally the doctrines
and discipline of Romanism.
Tun annexed quotation from the latest
published letter of Lady Byron, seems
decisively to preclude any continuance of
debate upon the accuracy of the recent
statements of Hrs. Stowe. These words
could not have been written by a woman
who knew her husband to have been gull
ty of the most revolting of crimes.
Here is testimony given after the separ
ation and while every incident; was finish
in the memory of the wife, who wrote :
-'Though he would not suffer me to
remain his wife, he cannot prevent me
from continuing his friend."
"It is not necessary to speak of his
heart in general it is sunk:lent that to
me it was bard and impenetrable. *
* I would rather present this as my
misfortune than as his guilt ; but surely,
that misfortune is not, to be made my
c mrie."
' "I might appeal to all whO have ever
heard me speak of him, and still more
to my own heart, to witness that there
has been no moment when I' have re
membered injury otherwise than affee
tien,ately and sorrowfully. It is not my
duty to give way to hopeless and wholly
unrequited affection ; but, so long as I
chief struggle will probably be
not to remember him too kindly."
And Lord Lindsey adds: .
"In the fame( the evidence now given,
positive, negative and circumstar tial,
there can be but two alternatives in the
case —either Mrs. Stowe must have on.

The business community will be grati
fied to learn that the telegraph system is
to be more than ever popularized by the
Western Union Telegraph Company,
whose lines connect together all the I
principal cities, towns and villages of the
country, who propose inaugurating on
the first of next month a revised and
greatly reduced schedule of the rates of
terra This is a movement which has
been under headway for a long time, but
owing to the great and intricate difficul
ties encountered, the innovation has been
necessarily delayed up
• till thetoresent
Lime, and the public have been d prived
of the benefits and advantages of cheap
facilities for rapid communications on
matters of a business and private nature.
When it is asserted 'that the Western
Union Company has during its existence
taken and consolidated with at least
six large, dominant organizations, and
has been constantly engage'd in stretch
ing forth its wires to all points of the
'compass, the , reader will realize how
tediouS and troublesome was the labor of
establishing' a fair, just and equitable
table of tariffs in thousands of offices un
der the direct charge of its management.
The prices wore, and at' the present time,
are, discriminating and in numerous in
stances perhaps. unjust,—a condition of
things consequent to a multitude of cir
cumstances and it has been the am.
bition 'of the company to so rearrange
and adjust their business, as to popularize
their Wires and establish' a uniformity of
rates, which would be not only satisfac
tory to their patrons, but as profitable as
those now in vogue.
Some three years ago Messrs. ORTON,
and distinguished gentlemen, at the head
of the Company, determined on a revis
ion of the rates, and with commendable
energy and enterprise commenced the
great labor which has just been completed
in a highly creditable and satisfactory
manner. The basis of calculation for the
new arrangement was novel and expedi
ent. Reckoning by an air line from of
fice to office, and computing rates• pro
portionate to theklistandes so obtained
would have been an endless process, and
one involving numerous years of time,
and yet failed to have furnished the de
sired equitable result; but out of the in
genuity of the gentlemen charged with
the work was born a plan whereby
much labor was saved and the
rates equitably established. A great
map was carefully drawn of the entire
territory over which any of the electric
wires passed, and_ the thirty-five hundred
or more of -the offices were marked in
their correct places. The surface of the
map was divided into squares of fifty miles,
so arranged that all the squares of every
alternate row fall in line with each other,
with the vertical lines terminating at the
centre of the' squares above and below
them. The tariff was fixed from the centre
of each square instead of from offices with
in it to those outside of it, thus reducing
the entries of tariffs - very largely. These
squares have been provided with tariffs
proportionate to their distaimes from other
squares, and, - as we have remarked, the
new schedule goes into operation on the
Ist proximo. Under the new rates we
confidently look for a large and increased
share of public patronage to be directed
towards the Western Union Company
which has always displayed commendable
energy, enterprise and liberality in acting
as the people's faithful agent for the
transmission of messages by telegraph.
In order that our readers may judge of
the great reduction in tolls to follow the
revision of tariff, we annex a few con
trasts in the old and new rates, in which
the changes are observable, and which
afford an idea of the , new order of things

has taken

It will be will to add that the new tariff

The recent MOT went of the liberal Re.
publicans of Wes Virginia was brought
to the attention o the President, during
his visit at Wheel ng, on the 21st, and he
was urged to expr ss his opinions thereon.
The Intelivencer IFilys : •
The President thought the policy ad
vocated was "right and proper." lie
i l
thought discriminations on account of
partloipation in t l rebellion should now
cease, and referro to the fact that, act
ting upon this idea, he had "afforded the
people of Virginia\and Mississippi an op
portunity to thro overboard the obnox
ious clauses of th tr constitutions" en
forcing such disc iminatione. He said
cave should be to - en to avoid division
among the Republ cans such as had hap
pened in Tennessee; but he thought the
ideas advocated in the Wheeling address
were "about right.', Being asked if he
had any objection to hiving his ap
proval 7of those ideas 'made known,
be replied that it would me improper
for him to interfere in any way in our
local politics; and he did not want to be
mixed up with themi But this expres
eion of his views having been thus
drawn from him without the slightest idea
on his put of interfering or volunteering
advice, we feel that there can be no im
propriety in stating the main point of
the conversation as we have done, viz:
That President Grant's attention has al
ready been attracted to the Liberal Re
publican Movement in this State, and
that be regards it with decided favor, as
being in consonance with his own ideas
and official acts; and that while he coun
sels the utmost caution to avoid a di
vision among us, he would gladly seethe
Republicans of the State united on such
a platform as that embodied in the
,Wheeling Address.
, We have more than once spoken of
this movement to abrogate the existing
restrictions upon the suffrage in that
State, not hesitating to express our hearty
concurrence in the policy, and our sincere
wishes for its success. Herein, the Re
publican press of the country general'' ,
has agreed with us. It is gratifying to
find that the same opinions are shared by
the Administration, as well as to perceive
the significance with which our friends
in West Virginia are admonished of the
single peril against which they have to
guard. Their hands will be strength
ened, as their policy is sustained, by the
personal endorsement of General GRANT,
aed we shall look 'with confidence to a
very general acceptance of the Wheeling
platform by the entire party of the State.
Wua Americans neve been abroad
they generally come home quite indig
nant at the lack of intelligence and
knowledge of American affairs in for
eigners. Some lay the blame of this
upon the national stupidity which the
unfortunate Europeans must imbibe
with the air . they breathe, while others
charge it all to the short-sighted and op
pressive rule of the "effete sovereigns"
of that Continent, who dread the effects
of a full knowledge of America, and
American affairs, upon their degraded
subjects. Now, we do not propose to
choose between these two excellent rea
sons, but we shouldsi l
ie for ike tothe knowig w hich,
If either, is respon
concerning European affairs in this
country. About England we do know a
little, but of France, Italy, Russia and
Germany we are as ignorant as any of
the Partially educated inhabitants of
those lands are of us. If a Sanattir of the
United States were to visit Paris, he
would, in all likelihood, be diegtuited at
the discovery that his fame—un
less ha were a man of the gimp
of a Sumner or a Fessenden
had not reached so far, and yet he would
have to confess a total ignorance of
even the names of men filling perhaps
higher positions in that country. Of all
the members of the newly appointed
cabinet in Paris, how many had ever
been heard of before on this side of the
world? How many 4 the leading Min
isters of Austria are known of here, ex
cepting Von Beust, who himself sprung
into their notice only in 1886, although
for many years he had been Premier 01
Saxony, and was regarded by the South
Germans as their only hope against the
machinations of Bismarck? • How much
do we know concerning the colonial gov
ernors of England, excepting those of
Canada and . India? Yet, if one of our
State Governors, men of less power and
influence, finds himself unknown abroad
he is pretty sure to base upon it a charge
of ignorance against the Europeans.
Again we refuse to choose between the
two excellent reasons for their lack of
knowledge given above, but shall leave
It to others to decide.
WE sun a paragraph "going the
rounds" of the press concerning an en
gineer of the Pennsylvania Central Rail
road, repreienting him as discovering a
locomotive without an 8130I1 80 k ap
proaching his train at fall speed, as
having whistled adown brskes" on hie
train, and as sending his fireman back to
uncouple the tender at the roarvirbile he
himself severe& the connection.with the
enitthe, and then 'jumping onthe tender,'
with red tag,' watched athe two en
glues dash toward each other like very
demons," both being thrown from the
, 1869.
track and demolished by the colli
sion. He next ran 'to meet the ex•
press going east, which was just
two minutes behind time, barely suffi
cient to enable him to "flag it" and bring
it to a full atop within twenty_feet of the
wrecked engines. For this heroic act, it
is further stated, the company presented
the engineer "with a check for one thou
sarid dollars." This certainly was a
"heroic act," and the reward not more
than adequate. But—we should like to
know the name and residence of the
hero, that we might do our share in
handing him down to posterity.
THE Capital, it seems, is to be removed
at least many people say so. Bt. Louis
claiths it, Chicago says that if moved at
all it must go to New York or Chicago,
and Train, having land for sale, gently
shrieks Omaha. It would need a • good
deal of pretty convincing logic to induce
persons generally to agree that the Capi
tal needs moving at all. Some say the
movement is being engineered by the
Demoqrats, who do not intend to al/ow it
to culminate until they again hold the
reins of government, when they will be
able to satisfy a very hungry crowd with
the most gigantic job yet dreamed of.
St. Louis is not the healthiest locality
and but little pleaanter - than Washing
ton, and the sum paid as mileage to Con
gressmen now would bs no whit less if
that were the seat of Government. New
York is as far from central as any of our
large cities, excepting the "Hub," nor
have the purity and excellence of her
city Government induced us to desire to
trust her with anything more than we
can help. As to Chicago—nobody but
a Chicagoose would think of such a
thing; uncentral, unstable, unreliable,
naturally, Chicago is a sort bf George
Francis Train among cities. We do'not
believe that the Capital will be moved at
all: but in case it shall be, then we are
n favor of finding the geographical cen
;re between Mexico, British America and
the two oceans, and there locating a
town and builalng the Capital.
TEte London papers constantly praise
Mr. John S. Clarke's performances of
Babington Jones and Toodles. The Court
Journat, in a long notice says: 'This
popular American actor was very suc
cessful in both pieces, and the warmth of
his reception ought to do much to soften
he asperities of the Alabama difficulty."
Just such ridiculous paragraphs as this
are quite common now in some journals
on both sides of the Atlantic; to us it
would seem just as sensible to say that
the warmth of the English rose-blankets
which we use ought to soften the asper
ity of the Alabama question. Blankets
are good things, and we pay good prices
for them to the producers. Mr. Cooke's
acting is a good thing, and If the English
people have the good taste to appreciate
it, we can see no reasonlwhy we as Amer
icans should feel as if a favor had been
done us. The Alabama question is pure
ly one of international law and comity
involved in a diplomatic labyrinth, and
as such cannot reasonably be affected by
either good acting or good blankets. We
send . England many i good actors, she
sends us many poor ones and much good
manufactured ware, but the Alabama
question still remains unsettled, and its
lasperities, so far as we can see, hang on
a different set of hooks entirely from
these other articles. j_
SOME MONTHS ago we gave our ideas
concerning funerals as they now are and
as they should be. The New York Clom
mereia/ Advertiser has now taken up the
same question and isjhandling it in a dif
ferent light. We objected to the barbaric
show and glitter, to the heartlessness
and unfeelingness of the present require
ments of society, and to the expense. The
New York editor treats of the expense
alone. He says
The desire for displays on funeral 00
visions keeps pace [with the passion for
costly weddings. Years ago, a simple
coffin, followed by a few carriages, was
regarded as sufficient for displaying prop
er respect for the (dead. Now, costly,
shrouds, the most expensive coffins, and
long trains of carriages are looked upon
as essential.
The Advertiser then treats of the folly
of this, and of the l exhorbitance of un
dertakers in a very forciblestyle, but not
sufficiently so to frighten us from treat
ing some day upon the same text.

what a shaking it was; old and young,

pregnant with evil and foreboding of diguter. .
In no class of maladies should the physician or
