always len proud of their Pendleton, but
his own evidence shows him to 1 but lit

to his own statement he was President ofa
railroad company which had a claim against
the government for 148.0UO for transpoi
tation duriag the w ar, and w as administra
tor d the estate of Howler, which held
three-fifths of the stock of the same railroad
comjiany. He prosecuted the claim of his
clienU ; and alihoiigh the claim had Wen
thrice rejected by Judge Advocate Holt,
(Jusitcruiastfr (Jcneral Meigs aud cre

through. The da'uu was allowed and
paid, Mr. Pendleton showed bis Democrat
ic training in making a divide"' w ith his
clients. He kindly toik 50,000 for him
self, and save bis two clients StiSjW to
divide between them. The charge of 8Q,000
for his services provss that he slid not
regard the claim as a just one. If the
claim was a good one, it was h.s ,!uty to
prosecute it as President of the company
without charge. A s is seen he took more
than half of his share, and to that extent
leiirived the road of which he was Presi

Belknap as a pablic official sold his ap

and irsonal influence for an enormous
money consideration. Mrs. Belknap re

LANCAeTEH, March 2i, 17.
&(ilr -1 I'trican :
This city has been thronged lor a few
days with Democratic politician wuo are
here ia the interest of promoting the prin
ciples of Democracy
The Convention met to-day noon, by se
lection of W. II. I'layford as temporary,
and 1L E. Monagharn as permanent Chair
man. After appointing various commit
tees, adjourned until 5j o'clock, at which
time re-assembled, but owing to failure of
committees to report, again adjourned to
meet at 74 o'clock P. M.
During the recess several members of the
uuterrilied were called upon to eutertain
the noisy rabble, among which number
was the lately defeated candidate, and ven
erable Granger, Victor Piolett, aud the
manner in which he made declarations re
garding his defeat was in itself a scene to
stagger for a moment the staunchrst of his
faith. He could speak of nothing but his
defeat and the Belknap steal, being very
particular not to injure the feelings of his
shallow assoiciatos by referring to f tut if ten.
At t A o'clock the Chairman !! an a
free use of his cane gavel, and the Conven
tion came to order. The first business be
fore the body was selecting of four dele
i )t successful candidates.
Messrs. CLas. IJ. Buckalew and S. D.
Wilson were chosen as electors at large.
After which tho names of tho districts
were calied in rotation, and the eeleciiou
of delegates to the National Convention,
and thn electors were speedily .lisposed
The district aud county l Northumler
land was represented by .1. 12. Kichholtz, H.
E. Davis and 'lte!nap" Aulen, and
championed by the Hon. Potter Withiog
ton, whose iniluenre amoni! thtrt delegates
was noticablc. Geo. V. Kyan. of .Shaiuo
kin, goes to t. l.otiis to end tbe farce that
was begun in this city to day.
The platform, adopted, favois hard
money, (a very decided contradiction to
what was one year ago at Erie.) No ap
propriations ot school funds for sectarian
uses, and a general abuse of Republican
meu aad principles, which vss the main
feature cf the platR.ini.
The selection of a Chairman to drum up
the weary and disconsolate Democrats dur
ing the coming Presidential Campaign
narrowed down to Wiu. McClellan aud
Wm. McCaiidk-ss, and during the third
and lt ballot quite a fracas occurred.
Men voting who were not members of the
Convention, and I boss who were entitled
to vote being crowded out. an 1 at this time
amidst great confusion and excitement men
were seized bodily and summarily ejected
from out the balh and it ws ail the presi
dent could do to restore order. When tbe
ballot was cuded and it was announced
that Mr. McClellan was elected, the Con
vention broke up with shouts for Demo
cracy. Thua ends the work of the Penn
sylvania Democrats, and henceforth the cry
is on to St. Louis where the ba'.oon will
evidently collapse. II.

KKW !IAMrIIlKK ELECTION.
Nkv.- York. March 2', 1S7C.
THE BI'J RANK FAILURE.
To the surprise of everybody, the Hank
of the State of New York closed its doors
Tuesday. This w as one uf the oldest banks
mi the city, and was presumed to be one of
the soundest, and the failure created a pro
found sensatiou on the street. Stocks went
down frightfully, other bsnks shivered in
anticipation ot runs, aud for a while it
seemed probable that a panic would sweep
over the street. Hut, fortunately, the event
passed without a widespread trouble.
This failure lets in a tlood of light ou
New York business and New York busi
ness men. When this staid, solid old
bana this eminently respectable 'finan
cial institution," went under, and its af
fairs came to be investigated, it was fouud
that none of its directors, or, for that mat
ter, any of tbe officers, kuew nothing about
its management, that not one ol them had
ever looked iuto it, there had never been a
regular meeting of the board, and that the
whole management was left in the hands of
one man, the Vice-President, Patrick !
As a matter of course Mr. Patrick bad
lent himself $200,000, he had lent the "At
trition Flour Co." 1400,000 on 000,000 of
us block, which slock was worth about
four ceuts a pound, and equally as a mat
ter of course everv shyster concern iu New
York in which Mr. Patrick was interested
r felt friendly toward, had its mouey on
just as worthless security. The directors
were all surprised when the failure was
made kuowu to them.
Tha effect of the failure will be bad in
ue sense aud good iu another. It will be
bad because it wilt uusettle confidence, and
make distrust. It will be good because it
will compel ditcctoi to look into tbe man
agement, and see what is being done with
the mouey with which they are intrusted.
All the banks, with a few exceptions, are
iu a tight place. Their securities are un
sound. Heal estate was their favorite se
curity, and on real estate loans have been
made quite up to its value. Hut, alas, real
estate has shrunk iu value over a half since
these loans were made, aud when the banks
come to foreclose only a half can be realize
Huaiueos men dread to have the condition
ot the banks looked into, for tear they will
all be fouud to be rotten, whicb would re
suit in such a smash-up as ibis city never
saw. They prefer to shut theii eyes and
Iti things urift, hoping thai something will
turn n i to let them out. But ic has got to
come. New Yotk is not ai tbe bottom of
iu troubles yet.
A $100,000 HOUSE.
Do you remember the failare fthe "emi
neut" banking-house of Duncan. Sherman
& Co. r Uf course you do; and you re
member also that they didn't pay scarcely
a uy thing on the dollar, and that their credi
tors were fearfully indignant. It is com
forting to take up a Newport paper and
read that Mr. Watt Sherman, one of th
partners, is building u cottage in that "city
by the sea." the cost of whicb is only SflOO,
Ol ! aud this for a summer residence only.
Failing is not a very bad business, after
all. If a ruined man can aSord a $100 000
house, what ought one to have who sticks
to his legitimate business, aud goes on reg
ularly ? The Vice-President of the big
bank failure of Tuesday will probably build
hiiuneif a cottage next year.

some years, and "the boys.'' as he was
wont to term the younjre r members of the
board, have squeestci him unmercifully.
And finally they fjot biru down, and every
body is glad of it. In his day, when he
had power, he showed do mercy. He never
asked or gave it, and now that his enemies
have him, they mete out to him his own
medicine. Drew's career was a strange
one.. He commenced Hie as drover, aud

nscrupulous, very bold and daring in bia
At one I
time he was worth not lets than fifteen
millions, and he was never quoted at less
than ten. lie was probably the most ig
uoraut man that ever did business. His
iguorauco of tho English language was
one of the stauding jokes op the street, and
"Drew's last" was as common as lying.
He approached a broker one morning with
the remark, "Don't yoa b'leeve that the
skrimmage on Nor'wcstern hez about vl
vmniatt'l ?" "Calumniated'' was us good
a word for him as "culminated.". He is a
loud professor of religion, and after a par
ticularly villainous operation in stocks
would endow a religious school, or a church
with as much unction as though he had
been in dead earnest. He built and cu
dowed a seminary in New Jersey, aud his
benefactions were wide-spread. It is said
of him that he was applied to give enough
to endow a school at a time when he felt
rather poor. "I wanted to do it," said
Drew, "but I didn't see my way clear, so
I prayed over it, and wrastled long, and I
got a auser right away. I riz from my
knees, and went dowu on the street, and
skiuned the boys nut uv it, ci ea ."'
In the schedule of his effects, he takes great
pains to include "Ilibies aud hymn-books,
410." The loss of those books must pray
on the old man's mind ! As it is said that
he has something in the neighborhood ot
five millions safely put away in the name
of his family, it is not probable that he will
suffer in his old age. lie was a great ad

THE WOMEN'S CENTENNIAL.
After the usual preliminary squabbling,
the ladies of New York have gone to work
in good earnest, resolved to have a show
wonh the name at the exhibition. The
women representing the oldest families in
the State, bearing honored names of tho
revolution, the Scbuylers, laviogkloues,
and Van Rensselaer have ordered a flag,
richly embroidered with tbe arms of the
State, which will be hung in Independence
Hall after the exhibition, as a trophy fr
the next Centennial. This was thought a
small matter to exhaust the resources of
the woman of the City, and they are lo
raise $1.",000, to complete a pavillion,
where their different works of art ami skill
may be shown, and, as usual, the best way
of raiDg the money is by giviag entertain
ments. Titiens is lo sing at a grand con
cert to help build the pavillion, and
the amateurs of the City are working
every other night in theatricals for the
same end, young ladies and gentlemen
of the best families appearing at lhc
Union league Theatre before crowded
houses. Oue of the city judges and bis
daughter played together one ' night, the
judge, it is said, appearing with the spirit
and grace of a young man of twenty -five,
by the 6ide of his daughter of eighteen.
The single tierforinauce realized $000 for
the fund. The decision of Mrs. (lillespie
who is Ibe head of tbe W omens' Commis
sion in Philadelphia, refusing with unndc
cary curtness, to admit all specimens of
womto's work relating to dress, raisnd such
criticism that it has been found expedient
to modify tbe rule. A strict interpreta
tion of it would exclude all such valuable
arts as lace maktug, which has attaiued a
very creditable stage in this country, em
broidery and desigu iu dress, in which our
women can show much more creditable
handiwork than anything they have yet
done in painting, let aleue sculpture. Tbe
action of the committee at Philadelphia
was in blind iudelfereuce to Ihe high es
teem iu which needlework is held in Eug
lund whete Sieciinens of lace, embroidery,
and dress form oue of the most attractive
and elegaul departments of the Museum at
Ksnsinglon, of which Peeresses are the in
terested patrons and contributors, and in
which the Princess Imise herself is an en
thusiastic amateur. In ray way of think
ing, the Philadelphia ladies have dune
their sex au injury by omitting to pay
proper respect to their peculiar arts, arid
so elcvatiug them from the level of trades
aud druggery. A very curious and inter
esting department at tbe exhibitioa would
be specimens of tine needlework from the
days of the revolution down. The excuse
of the committee (that to admit such things
would briug down on them all the dress
makers and milliners in lbs country.) is as
unreasonable as to exclude all machinery
because, the whole patent office might be
offered. It w as theirs to choose what to ex
hibit. This is a question which ought lo
interest every woman in tha country who
wants to sea projier balance of rsspect
shown to all brauches of woman's duty
and work, to sewing and dressmaking as
well as making poor clay figures and pic
tures out of drawing.
THE NEW HAMPSHIRE ELECTION.
You can't imagine the wild delight with
whicb the uews ol tbe glorious triumph iu
New Hampshire was received by the Re
publicans of New York. It there is any
oue thing that the New York Republican
dreads, as a business man. aud aside from
any political feelinr. it is the return of tbe
democracy to power, for it seems to him
the old Tweed rule, which is another name
for ruin. The sentiment of the Republi
cans of the city was well expressed by a
prominent bnsiues muu at the L'uion
League CIu) ! "The election and the vic
tory," said he, "is not an rndorsement of
Belknap and the thiests it is a verdict
that the Republican party is not responsi
ble for tbe acts ofa few corrupt men.
Aad siieakiug of this election, it is sin
gular how it tear id tha independents.
The Ti ib-uit; has awakened lo the fact that
tho Republicau narty is the ouly one that
ever did auy investigation in its own rauks
and tlx: only one that ever punished its
own theives. It really seemed to feel good
over tbe Republican triumph in the Gran
ite State, and read more us it used to be

has for years. It would not be singular if
the Tribi'.ie shauld get back into the Re
