The hearty response of the Republi
emi jM'ojile and press throughout the
Union, to the nominations made at
Philadelphia nspositive evidence
thaj. yM. grvat Republican party is
united, vigorous and confident of suc
cess as in days of yore. True, the
Tribune professes to 1elieve the re
sult of the Convention and theenthu
Musni displayed by the vast concourse
present, to have been devised by the!
office-holders; but the intelligent and j
thinking jwirtion of the jieople know
and feel that it was a deserved and
poiitanoous rebuke of indignant citi-
zeiis, in reproof of the crsoiial, ven
cmoiis and malignant assault made
upon the President, in the Senate, a
few days previously, with the vain
lxfpe of destroying his character aud '
ruining his prosjiccts for renomina
tioii. To the pompous and wordy vil
ification of the Massachusetts Sena
a tor, the Senate, the Convention, the
press and the people have responded
in unmistakable terms. There is no
hesitancy in the ringing tones that
ascend from all parts of the country,
giving assurance of full faith in the
integrity of the victor at.Apponiatox,
whose civil career is in full accord
with his record as a brilliant soldier.
Republicans all over the country are
ready for the fijrht, and the malcon
tents arc swiftly drawing off to the
camp of tlie enemy. There is no
hesitancy, no doubt, and no regrets,
except for the weak or sore, who have
Wen cajoled, or Lave suffered their
vjileeu to blind their judgement.
We do not attempt to deny that we
would gladly have had these former
friends with, instead of against us in
the coming battle, but wc sorrow only
for themselves. We had a similar ex-jK-rience
in lfcf4 and again in 1 80S.

than the present dissatisfied gentle

and yet we succeeded despite their
The election of General Grant
four years since, was looked upon by
many as a hazardous cxH'rimcnt;
but his administration has shown
their apprehensions to have been ill-
rouiitled, and he is a much stronger
candidate with the tiiasM-s now than
he was then, while the nomiuation of
Henry Wilson,-a recognized friend
of the great laW interests of the
country, an eminent statesman of long
service and tried integrity, adds

and of its candidates, the Republicans

tail of their own, as well as of all
other organizations are attempting
to effect a consolidation, which the
plots and counterplots of the Dal-
gettys, who lead its torn factions,
have so far prevented.
At Baltimore on the 9th of the
coming month, the final effort will be
made to organize an opjosition to the
Republican ticket, and all present
signs indicate that the"once powerful
Democracy will there confess their to
tal ruin, and humbly agree to swallow
a ticket in whose wlection they had
no voice, and at whose Lead is their
lifelong and bitterest foe, and adopt a
platform enunciating principles.which
they have always combated with in

THE PRI.UIT tl.BtTlS.
The ticket at tbi head of pur col
1111111, placed there as duly nominated
becausp it received the largest num
ber of votes at the late election, is a
.'fair HUiiple. of the beauties of the
"Crawford county Kystem." Wc have

who, iu liia card publi.-hod in our lo
cal xlumns, declares that he was not

printing and circulation of his tickets;
a nominee for Delegate to the Conven
tion whoso candidacy was unknown
to nine-tenths of the electors, and
who was voted for at the polls in four
precincts only; a nominee for prothon-
Jotary who was too much voted for,
having returned for him more votes
from his own tohip, than has been
polled by the conjoint parties in that

THE DEMOCRATIC 1 ANDAKV.
To le, or not to lef that is the
question, now distracting the Democ
racy. Whether 'tis nobler in the
mind to suffer the slings and arrows
of outrageous fortune', or to take arms
against a sea of troubles, and, by o
posing, end them ? To die to sleep,
no more: and, by a sleep, to ay
we end the heartaches, and the thou
sand natural shocks that flesh is heir
to, or whether it is advisable at
Baltimore, in order to leat Grant, to
forsake creed, organization and name,
and make common cause with their
deadliest foe, gives them pause.
There's the resjtcct that makes cal
amity of so long life: for who .would
bear the whips and scorns of time,
the oppressor's wrong, the proud
mnn's contumely. w w the inso
lence of office, and the spurns that
ttatient merit of the unworthy takes,
when he himself migbt his quietus
make with a bare bodkin? So, to be
or not to be, is the question that will
continue to distract the Democracy
until the Baltimore Convention
launches them on a voyage to the un
discovered country, from whose
bourne no traveler returns.
It is asserted by the Harrisburg
Telegraph that Forney's Pre,
while ostensibly for the Philadelphia
nominees, is really in the interest of
the Greeley faction, and that Col.
McClure has ojK-nly boasted that
such is the case. On the other hand,
Forney stoutly asseverates that he is
heartily in favor of the election of j
Grant and Wilson. 'Be the fact as
it may, it is very certain that by his
warfare on the State ticket, he is do

The Tribune knows no parties

Capt. G. S. Mullen, of Bedford

4'haMrle A. Barkalw.
The Democrats were at least true
to their old-time principles in nomina
ting Charles A. Buckalew for Gover
nor, at their State convention. Mr.
Buckalew possesses two leadiner
characteristics of a first-class Demo
crat he is a life-time office holder.
and has lioen a devoted follower of the

A -n -
termissions, for a quarter of a cen-
tury, and may Ik projerly le said,
we think, to be a professional office
holder. He started out as a hair
splitting, State rights Democrat, with
John C. Calhoun as "Guide, philoso-
I pher and friend," and logically follow-
ed those convictions, notwithstanding
their inevitable tendency was to make
this Union a rope of sand, and to
lead to rebellion and war. He was
with the slaveholders from the begin
ning of his political life, and for any
thing that has been made public, all
his sympathies are with them yet.
When the Kansas outrages were be
ing perpetrated, and slavery was be
ing unlawfully ami brutally forced on
that free territory, Mr. Buckalew was
in the State Senate, and wc hapen
ed to listen to a debate that took place
in that body on the subject. Mr.
Buckalew took the lead in the dis
cussion on the Democratic side, and
he sustained and justified those out
rages with all the ability and sophis
try that he could command. He was
replied to by John. C. Kunkle, and
with magnificent eloquence Kunkle
exposed the anti-Republican ami in
human tositions of Buckalew. These
outrages were really the begining of
the war of the reiK'Uion, and as Buck
alew sustained them, he never went
back on their logical results through
our national troubles. He was in
public life through the war, but we
can call to mind no word he uttered
no act he did, on the side of the im
periled Uuion. Indeed, wc remember
that in his district, where his influ
eacc has long been recognized as
very great, what is called the Fishing
Creek Ucoclhon took place, and meu
among his constituents were those f
the few in the North who made armed
resistance to the Union authorities.
Whether the spirit that incited these
men to co-oiieration with Southern
rebels was the fruit ofMr. Buckalew's
political teaching, or whether it grew
out of their innate depravity, we do
not know; but we certainly never
beard that Jlr. Buckalew uttered a
word in their condemnation.
Mr. Buckalew's friends have been
trying to give him a reputation for ex
ceptional honesty antl fairness ; but
his conduct iu the Lyndall-Deccrt and
the M'Clure-Gray contested election
cases proves him to lie a man capable
of resorting to the most mon
strous unfairness to serve his party
and to accomplish a political end. In
those two cases, which were similar
in every respect, except that the Re
publicans were to gain by contesting
the former caso and the Democrats
were to gain by contesting the later,
the positions he took and the olicy
he sustaintcd were directly onnosite
in the former case refusing an in
vestigation ; in the later case forcing
an investigation, and conducting it in
a manner that appeared to show that1
he was determined to make it termin
ate in a way that should give his
party the control of the Senate. And
so has Mr. Buckalew been a partisan
all his long office-holding career.
And as to his ability, he is much
overrated by his supporters. In the
United States Senate he scarcely held
a third rate position ; and among the
able men of that body he was com
pletely dwarfed. Among township
and county politicians he had won
some reputation for ability, but when
brought in contact with the able
minds of the nation, he was almost
entirely lost sight of.
Mr. Buckalew is simply a Demo
cratic politician, with all the old Dem
ocratic itrejudice, and with a still ab-
jsorbing love for the fallacies of the
Calhoun school of States rights ad
vocates a school that prepared the
way by the ad vocacy of their unnation
al principles, for the rebellion and
all its accompany evils. There is a
shadow of nothing in him that can
invite a Republican to give him sup
ort Lebanon Courier.
We heard of a delegate to the Cin
cinnati Convention who got very
drunk, and in that condition started
home. He stopped at a hotel to get
his supper, but was not in a condition
to determine what he desired. Just
then a waiter came to him and asked
him what he would have. He replied
"Anything (hiccup) to beat Grant:"

THE SOUTH CAROLINA DEMOCRACY
The Democratic State Convention
met this evening. Nineteen counties
out of thirty-two were represented by
eighty-seven delegates. Simon Fair
was temporary chairman, and W. D.
Porter permanent chairman. Porter
made a strong speech in favor of the
Cincinnati nominations, which was
received with rapturous applause.
Numerous resolutions were introdu
ced, all urging the support of Gree
ley, whose name was received with
an ovation of applause whenever
mentioned. More than half the dele
gates to the present convention came
instructed to support the Cincinnati
movements and to urge no separate
nomination at Baltimore. The feel
ing of the Convention is evidently
nearly unanimous in this direction.
A committee on resolutions was ap
pointed, and the Convention adjourn
ed uutil to-morrow forenoon.

In the mid.1! of the rejoicing at
Philadelphia, there came a dispatch
over the wires, a distance or three
thousand miles, from the State of
Oregon, announcing a glorious Re
publican victory there on Monday.
Oregon has been under Democratic
rule for four years, but now has re
turned to the Republican fold, prepa
ratory to taking her place in the
Grant line next November.
By way of commending Greeley to
the Democracy, the Tribune claims
that the venerable blonde burlesquer
has frequently voted for Democrats
in municipal contests. The Chicago
Post says that inasmuch as the mu
nicipal officers in New Y'ork have
been almost invariably the most cor
rupt rascals to be found anywhere,
i.does not appear that Horace de
serves many thanks from the public
for his assistance in electing them.
The Lcwistown (Me.) Journal says
the Democracy of that section of the
Pine Tree State are a unit for Gree
ley, and this is their reasoning. "We
ij go for Greeley because it is the only
chance wc have of getting into power
and we believed that when elected by
us, he will change his course and be
come practically a Democrat, as we
have noticed that men are usually
moulded by those who elect them to
office; and our votes must elect him,
if he is elected at all."
The Baltimore American recom
mends for a motto aliove the doors of
the Baltimore Convention, a quota
tion from Greeley, as follows: "AH
Democrats aro not horse thieves, but
all horse thieves are Democrats." 1 1
seems too bad thus to quote against a
man his own utterances, but Mr. Gree
ley must submit to it with all the
patience he can, for he has not spared
the feeling of others in the past, and
he has no right to expect mercy at
their hands, now that like poor Tray,
he is found in bad company, the very
ones b denounced so bitterly in the
The Mobile Tribune declines, for
one, to lie caught with party chaff.
It doesn't care a rush whether the
the Baltimore Convention indorses
Mr. Greeley or not The Southern
people have had experience enough,
it says, of alliances with the North
ern Democracy to make them charv
of again committing the blunder of
furnishing pretext for the charge that
they were attempting to "undo by
the ballot that which was accomplish
ed by the sword."
Horace Greeley made an address
last fall in Trumbull county, Ohio, in
which he said : "I saw the other
day a suggestion that I would proba
bly be the best Democratic candidate
to run against General Grant for
President I thought that about the
most absurd thing I ever heard or
read. If the Democratic party were
called upon to decide between Grant
and myself, 'I know that their re
gard for what they call principle
would induce nine. tenths of them to
vote against me."
Brick romeroy draws the follow
ing pen picture of the Democratic par

gale which swept over the city be
tween three and four o'clock this af
ternoon was very disastrous, in its ef
fects. In Grcenpoint the gale was
very severe, and houses were unroof
ed and trees torn up in every direc
tion. The roof of the New Y'ork Dye
Works was blown off, causing dam
age to the amount f $3,000. . A large
brick building in Williamsburg in
course of elevation, corner of Broad

down, burying nine men in the ruins.
One man named Beers was taken out
dead and others were terribly woun

torn from her moorings in the East
river and was driven into the draw of
the Newtown creek bridge, jaming
herself so tightly that neither her nor
the bridge could be oved, ' The

Chicago, June 8. Further reports
of the great storm of Thursday night
in Central Illinois show that , there
was an immense amount of damage
done in Peoria, Fulton,-. Knox and
other counties in that section of the
State, the destruction of bridges on
the country roads having been almost
universal, " fn "the city of Peoria.
fences antl trees were blown down,
cellars filled with water, and every
railroad leading out of the city suffer
ed more or less. No trains left there
yesterday. The Chicago and Quincy
Railroad had about tour miles of
track aod taiany bridges swept away.
The Toledo, Peoria and Wabash road
also' suffered severely? losing one 1 50
foot bridge, and, the entire road iu a
number of places is gone. , A large
force of men are at work repairing
damages, and will . cause but little
detention of trams. Iu the town of
Hiltou damages are fearful.. The
town is almost entirely flooded with
water, and barns, stock, etc., have
been swept miles away. , Tho most
singular thing is the running up stream
of the Illinois river. The immense
volume of water poured into the river
below has created a back-water, and
there is a strong current running
northward. The river lastnight was
still rising very rapidly, and fears of
damage from this source were enter

Cincinnati, June 11. Later par
ticulars from the scene of the tornado
which visited Quiney and Degraff, in
Logan county, on Saturday evening,
show that it was more terrible and
destructive than the first reports in
dicated. A sultry day was followed
by the appearance of a cloud in the
west at five o'clock P. M., which gath
ered in blackness and size with fear
ful rapidity. A heavy wind set in,
and at 5:30 P. M. the whirlwind struck
the earth, five miles from Quincy
moviug northwestwardly. It , was
hardly more than five minutes in
reaching Quincy, through which it
passed, making a clean sweep of
houses, trees and fences along its path,
which fortunately was comparatively
narrow. " In Quincy fifty or sixty
dwellings and stores, two churches,
anil as many more shops, stables and
outbuildings were unroofed, or rocked
on their foundations, or demolished.
The air was literally filled with flying
weather boards, furniture, laths and
plaster. A parlor sjove was caught
up by the wind, hurled through the
air and falling on a woman crushed
her so that she died. '
The Baptist and Methodist Episco
pal Churches were completely de
stroyed. On its way to Degraff, the
tornado struck Boggs' flouring mill,
five stories high, containing three
thousand bushels of pram, moving-
the building nine inches from Us foun
dation, carrying away the roof and a
portion of the fifth story. It plowed
its way through Degraff, scattering
destruction in its path, but hurting
fewer persons and injuring a lesser
number of buildings. After leaving
Degraff it passed several settlements
and finally rose from the earth, and
was seen for miles carrying in its fun
nel shaped form timbers, rails and
debris gathered in its destructive
The papers this morning give the
names of thirty-nine persons injured
in Quincy antl eleven in Degraff, the
list not comprising all injured in the
former village. Mrs. Rail reported
killed in Degraff, is yet living. Two
of her children were killed. Mrs.
Glick, of Quincy, has since died of

M empiiis, June 13. Tuesday morn
ing the body of Billy Rawes, a young
planter, was found in a cotton field,
near Bell's station, on the Mempnis
and Louisville Railroad, with his
head crushed from a blow with a hoe.
Suspicion pointed to Martin Rawes,
colored, who was at work with de
ceased, and who had disappeared.
Some citizens went in search of Mar
tin and found him at work near the
station. On being arrested he con
fessed havintr killed the deceased, but
stated that Billy and he had quarrel
ed, and the later had started to get a
gun, when he struck him with a hoe.
The ground where the deceased was
found bore evidence of a fearful strug
gle, and the prisoner was not be
lieved. Infuriated friends of young
Rawes were with difficulty restrained
from lynching the negro, but better
counsel prevailed and he wa taken
to Brownsville and jailed. The de
ceased and his murderer were raised
together and had always Itccn warm
ly attached to each other.

He Im Rtabed TkrMfk the Heart.
Shortly, before twelve o'clock last
night a gentleman passing up Arch
street, Allegheny, saw a man stagger
and take now oi tne irou ruuui m
front of the M E. Church, corner of
North avenue and Arch street, and
then fall to the ground. Seeing the
man laying there, he picked up a
stone and rapped on the gas lamp two
or three times, when officers Wilson
and Cowcll came up and were raising
the man who had nothing but his
pants and shirt on when a men
named Lynch appeared and said :
"I've cut, that man, I guess I've give
him enough" Officer Wilson took him
in charge, and both men were convey
ed to the lock-up.
Drs. B. B. Smith and James Kirker
were summoned, and upon examina
tion found that there were two wounds
in the back of the neck ; and one just
aliove the heart While the physi
cians were examining the wounds one
of them exclaimed "he is dead,"
which proved correct' The murdered
man was insensible from the first mo
ment he was picked up and remained
so until he died. " "
Lynch stated that he lives with his
sister, Mrs. Teetsat 174 Arch street,
aud that upon going home last night
he . heard voices iir her room, and
thinking that very strange,' he deman
ded admittance, and it not being gran-
tea, he burst tho door open, and found
this ' man undressed ; in her room.
With the strength and rage of a mad
man he struck the intruder first on
one sh6uldcr, then on the other, then
a third time above . the heart: The
woman tried to interfere, when she
was knocked down three times. She
was also arrested. "

. Nokristown, Pa., June 8, 18T2. -The
long talked of reception to
General Buriiidc took place here this
afternoon. The General arrived from
Philadelphia in company, with Gener
al I Iartranft at half-past two o'clock
anil was received by the military of
this jlaw, Conshohocken, Bridgeport
and Phtenixvilie, numbering in all
aliout five hundred men. A salute
was fired, when the procession formed
and the line of march was taken up
through the principal ' streets to the
fair ground the streets were throng
cd with people, immense crowds being
present " from different parts of the
country. During tho parade the wil
dest enthusiasm prevailed, and cheer
ing for Burnside, Ilartranft and Grant
was very frequent ; The, principal
stores and dwellings were decorated
with flags and streamers in great pro
fusion. On the General's arrival at
the fair grounds, the twelve compun
ies composing the line broke ranks
and partook of a , beautiful rcpast-
Ueneral JJurnsidc then hold an im-
promtu reception, and shook hands
with his old comrades of the Fiftv-
first regiment, With which General
Ilartranft, by a gallant charge at the
battle of Antietam, took Antic tarn
bridge. The parade then reformed
and returned to town, where, after a
dinner at Col. Boltou's residence,
General Burnside was introduced to
an immense crowd of citizens, and
sMke as follows :
"I thank you heartily for your kind
reception. I promised my fellow sol
dier, General Ilartranft, at Cleveland
the other day, to pay him a visit and
see once more my old commaud, but
I had no idea of seeing such an im
mense and enthusiastic assemblage of
soldiers and citizens waiting to re
ceive me. I thank you for vour
kindness, both you and my comrade
Ilartranft, for whom I have greater
regard than for any other officer of the
armv. lo him, who never nincneu
from danger , when work was to le
done. 1 I am more indebted for what
ever of success I may have attained
than to any other. But for him aud
his gallant soldiers of the Fifty-first,
his townsmen and yours, I should
have accomplished nothing. Cries
of That's so." I never think of that
bridge at Antietam without having a
feeling of deep emotion. My Ninth
army crop saw the hardest fighting
and lost the heaviest. We lost more
men when General Ilartranft charged
the bridge and took it 'than General
Sherman did during his inarch to the
sea. Cries of "That's too true."
When I saw the old flags to-day, how
my heart filled with thankful emotion
for your gallant General mmi his brave
soldiers. I thank you all for your kind
During the Geueral's speech there
were frequent cheers for Ilartranft
and at the conclusion that gentleman
stepjied forward and sjioke a few min
utes, reminding his fellow comrades
of their campaign together, and
thanking those present for their inter
est in the occasion. The crowd then
cheered for, Owen.and General Owens
accepted to their request by making a
short speech, eulogizing General
Ilartranft anil his commander. Gen
eral Burnside was then, at half-past
eight o'clock, driven to General Ilart
ranft 's residence, where a general re
ception of our citizens was held.
Many eminent persons were present.

Tax aad Tariff Red art Ion.
The tax and tariff bill, which lately
passed Congress makes some most
important ami welcome changcsi in
taxation. It, for instance, reduces
the amount of tho stamp tax by the

cent, i he tnnffon wools and woolen
manufacture in reduced ten percent.
On cotton fabrics the reduction is the

terials ? of all descriptions a great
benefit to our shipping interest. A
large number of articles used in man
ufactures, such asdriicrx. chemicals and
dye-stuffs, arc placed upon the free
list. The system of imposing ami
collecting the internal revenue taxa
tion is altered, revised and simplified.
Tobacco warehouses are aloli.hed ; so
likewise the system of paying moie-j
ties to informers, which has produced i
so much fraud and corruption. The
number of collectors and assessors is
reduced nearly 300. Altogether, the
reduction of taxation will ljc between
fifty-three and fifty-five millions of
dollars per anum. All this has been
accomplished by the Republican party
at the same time that the reduction
of the public debt has been at the
rate of $70,000,000 jx r annum for the
past three years.
