The New York Tribune and the
Democratic journals of the baser sort,
arc still harping on the alleged frauds
perpetrated in this State on the 9th
of October. Of course, they totally
ignore the returns from the different
counties in the State, which prove
that in no instance did the Republi
can vote exceed the amount ordinarily
polled, with the natural increase add-
ed, and that in almost every county
the Democratic vote fell off heavily,
thus largely swelling the Republican
maioritv. Unfortunately aleo for
these viliCers the Ilarrisburg Patriot,
the central organ of the Democracy,
in an unguarded moment assigned the
true reason of our surprising majority
when it 6tated, that some forty thou
sand Democrats stayed away from
the polls and refused to vote for
Buckalew. But while this speaks
well for the honesty and common sense
of the Democrats, it is not as convinc
ing evidence of the integrity of ITaiit
Ranft'6 majority, as is a glance at
the Congressional vote in the State.
The official vote for Congressmen in j
the different districts when summed
up, gives the Republican majority in
the State as 50,7"C, and this most ef
fectually disposes of the lyingchargcs
of fraud, so jK-rsistently made.

lar clamor to order may be true, but
the attempt will doubtless prove a
failure and get into trouble those who
engage in it. There is quite sufficient
real indignation at the imbecile and
yet malignant course of Spanish ty
ranny in Cuba, without playing on
the sensibilities of our people by mak
ing show cases for display. The fact
that a large Spanish Army and Navy
have failed to subdue the revolution!
after years of bloodshed, and the
further fact that the rules of warfare j
recognized in the interest of humani
ty by all civilized nations arc scouted
by Spain in thc execution of prisoners,
will in the early future, if continued,
require a protest of the leading na

Thc October report of thc Depart
ment of Agriculture informs us.among
other things, that the wheat crop will
not fall shortof 240,000,000 bushels,
upon an area of 20,000,000 acres, thus
averaging twelve bushels of wheat to
thc acre. It is also shown that thc
product of this cereal is variable in thc
different States, and that the centra!
line of its production continues to
move further West, the line being
now in Illinois and Wisconsin. The
increase in thc States west of the
Mississippi river is about 25,000,000
bushels, or. ia comparison with last
year's product, eighty-five million to
seventy million bushels. Thc report
shows, however, and contrary to pre
vious accounts, that thc supply of
wheat is in excess of last year's yield,
while the quality is better.
The official vote on the constitu
tional amendment, making the office
of State Treasurer elective by thc
people, instead of by thc Legislature,
shows 4Sl,fii!0 votes for thc amend
ment, and only 4,303 against. No
returns were received from Franklin
county as to the vote on the amend
ment in that county. The largest
vote cast against the amendment in
anyone county was 1,018 in Dau
phin. Allegheny returned but 25
against it, and in Wayne, Tioga,
Sullivan, McKean, Huntingdon, Elk
and Cameron there were no votes
against it. In thc other counties the
vote ragged from one against in War

phin. After all thc fulsome laudation be
stowed by thc N. Y. Tribune on An
dy Ccrtix, when he joined the Grec-ley-Dcmoeratie
party, that ungrateful
gentleman utterly forgot to announce,
as he promised, who was to receive
the benefit of his support for Presi
dent. Thc Tribune has been intent
ly listening for that "blast from Ci R
tix'b bugle," but all in vain, and we
presume it has discovered ere this,
"our Andy's" constitutional proclivi
ty for "going back'' on his friends.
We have little doubt, that the cx-Gov-crnor'has

Ax attempt was made a few days
since to hold a Giant and Wilson
barlccuc at a email town in Virginia,
four miles from Chain Bridge. The
place selected was on the plantation
of Col Markael, an ex-Confederate.
The Colonel, however, appeared with
a double-barrelled shot gun, and ex
pressed a decided opinion that it
would not be good policy to stop on
his grounds. Thc company conse
quently selected another location just
outside of his line, and spent the day
in an enthusiastic political festival.
The annual value of iron manufac
tured in this country is $900,000,000 ;
the wages of labor engaged upon it
must exceed $000,000,000; and the
number of workmen employed in it is
940,000. Allowing the usual num
bers to the workmen's families, one
tenth of the entire population of the
United States is seen to Ie depend
ent upon the production and manufac
ture of iron for support.
The rise in thc river last week at
Pittsburgh, gave the coal men thc op
portunity of getting a portion of thoir

largest amount ever shipied from
Pittsburgh in so short a space of time.

EXECUTION OF JENKINS.
To-day wo are to have the wretch
ed spectacle of a hanging in Wash
ington. According to long time cus
tom society demands the life of a
murderer as an atonement for the life
he has taken. Many persons still
doubt the utility of putting a man to
such a horrible use either for the pur
pose of producing terror in thc minds!
of the evil disposed and thus prevent
ing the recurrence of this crime, or as
a sacrifice to outraged law. Except !
in self defense thc taking of life can-j
not be readily justified, and thc fact !
that only a few centuries since the
death penalty was applied to hun
dreds of the petty order of offenses
in christian lands which are now pun
ished by a few months or days of im
prisonment is an earnest that in the
not distant future as it now is in some
of our states, capital punishment will
be entirely abandoned in Christian j
countries. Many advanced Christ-j
lans esteem it siniui lor society to des
troy that which it can not create, and
by perpetrating another murder under
forms of law, to set an example be
fore the community that human life
is so cheaply estimated that it may be
coolly sacrificed for other purposes
than that of life-saving itself, viz: in

The President has just issued a
proclamation declaring that all goods
imported into the United States in
French vessels from countries other
than France, shall be charged with
discriminating foreign tonnage and
import duties, for thc reason that re

American vessels by the republic of
France. Thc Treasury Department
has also issued a circular addressed
to the Collector of Customs to accom

to act in conformity with its terms
The Ualtimore and Ohio l.auroad
Company still have the monopoly of
freight from the Last, and hence the
charge for transportation of apples
and other commodities of family use
is to-day greater than thc original
cost of thc articles. This is given by
our market folks as a reason why
they arc obliged to unite and take
every dollar earned by department
clerks in exchange for an indifferent
living. Such is life in Washington.
Judge Paschal has written an argu

Mr. W. W. Corcoran, an old and
wealthy citizen of Washington, has
donated a la.ge tract of land in thc
suburbs of this city for the special
endowment of thc Columbian Col

000, and when the new Washington
is completed in all the splendor of its
inaugurated systematic improvements
thc value of this land on its boundary
will be doubled. This college, under

the steamship Missouri have been ob
tained from survivors who have ar
rived here :
When the boat that was saved left
the burning ship, one boat was seen
with the keel upward, which had two
men on it. The rescued boat lay for
two hours by a swamped boat con
taining nine men, including the engi
neer, lireman and ship's barber. A
I bucket was given to thc inmates of
the swamped boat to bail with, there
being two in the rescued boat As
there were no seamen in thc swamped
boat they were unable proiicrly to
manage it, and in this condition they
were left. It is not likely that any
of them were saved.
"o sails had been seen for two
days previous to the fire. On that
day thc Missouri was in company
with a ship from J:15 A. M. until J
r. y., when she was lost sight of. For
forty minutes after the rescued left
thc Missouri they saw the passengers
and crew who remained on board
and crowded on thc after part of the
vessel. It is Faid that the lire was
first discovered on the floor of the
locker in the pantry, and the cry of
"lire" was immediately given. Wot
carpets were at once put on the fire
by thc pantrymen and others, and the
Steward reported to the passengers
that the firo was out. The alarm
was given while the passengers were
at breakfast, but on receiving the
steward's report that the fire had
been extinguished, breakfast was re
sumed and thc fears of thc passengers
quieted. Within two minutes howev
er, several voices screamed "fire" from
a stoke hole. All was then contusion.

A College for women is about be

from Amherst, and the location is said
to be an unusually beautiful one.
The study of Greek and Latin is to be
pursued, but considerable time is also
to be devoted to thc modern languag
es ; and our mother tongue is not to
be neglected. Then, too, the physic
al Fciences are to be taught, and thc
students kept fully up with the acien
tine and material progress of our age.
All this is precis! v as it should be, and
if young ladies, inspired by noble am
bition of becoming thoroughly edu
cated, will but repair at once to this
college established specialy for their
use, instead of pestering the professors
of Harvard and Yale, who have not
the means of providing for them dur
their collegiate course, the collego at
Northampton will, indeed, not have
been built in vain.

had fallen in. They immediately
went to the house and found that the
roof of the house had fallen in upon

along and etill no help. Still the ap

human agony bad been endured, and
then a silence crept over that abode,
