The Rev. Peter Cartwrijrlit, tlic i-
onccr Methodist preaeuer, died at his
lioine, near Fleasant Plains, Sanga
mon count", 111 , on Thursday, the
2Gth of bcjitom lior. at the ajjcot cixlb
tv-seren rears. lie was the oldest
ordained member of the Methodist
church in the United States, having
lcen in the ministry over sixty years.
His principal Cold of labor was the
western country, where ho was wide
ly known for his untiring zeal, iionic
ly eloquence, and occasional eccen
tricities, llie story or liislue, which
is best told in his autobioggTaphy.pos
scsses ppccial interest from the im
press of hisowu individuality which
every page of it bears. Regarding his
parentage, he wrote:
"I was born Scpteniiier 1, 1785, in
Amherst county, on James river, in
the State of Virginia. My parents
were noor. Mr father was a 6oldicr
in the great strugglo for liberty, in
the revolutionary war with (ircat
ISritian. He served over two rears.
Shortlv after the United Colonics
pained their independence, my parent
moved to Kentucky, which was a
new country. It was an almost un
broken wilderness from Virginia to
Kentucky, at that early day, and this
wilderness was filled with hostile In
dians, and many thousands of the em
igrants lost their lives by these sava
ges." His parents settled in Logan eoun
1v, Kentuckv, and he describes as fol-j
lows the state of things in the rude
district, wherein his b .yhood was
"When my father settled in Logan
countv, there was not a newspaper
printed south of Green river, no mills
(-h )rt of forty miles, and no schools
worth the name. Sunday was a day
set apart for hunting, fishing, horse
racing, card-playing, balls, dances,
and all kinds of jollity and mirth.
We killed our meat out of the woods,
wild; and beat our meal and hominy
with a postal and mortar. We stretch
ed a deer-skin over a hoop, burned
holes in it with the prongs of a fork,
sifted our meal, baked our bread, eat
it, and it was Grst-ratc eating too. We
raised or gathered out of the woods,
our own tea. Wc had sagc,.bohe, a
cross-vine, spice and sassafras teas, in
abundance. As for coffee, I am notj
sure that I ever smelled it for ten
years. We made our sugar out of the
water of the maple tree, and our mo
lasses too. - These were great luxur
ies in those -days.
"We raised our own cotton and
flax. We water-rotted our (lax, broke
it by hand, southed it; picked the
seed out of the cotton with our fin
gers ; our mothers and sisters carded,
spun, and wove it into cloth, and they
cut and made our garments, bed
clothes, etc. And when we got on a
new shirt thus manufactured, and sal
lied out into company, wc thought
ourselves 'so big as anybody.' ''
He says frankly that he was neith
er better nor worse than the other
b jys in his section.
I was natuallya wild, wicked boy,
and delighted in" horse-racing, card
playing and dancing. My father re
strained mo but iiitle, though my
mother often talked to me, wept over
me, and often drew tears from my
eyes ; and though I often wept under
preaching, and resolved to do better
and seek religion, yet I broke my
vows, went into young company, rode
races, played cards and danced."
In IbOl, when he was in his six
teenth year, there was a religious
meeting held near his home, and he
was converted. He says :
"To this meeting I repaired a guil
ty, wretched sinner. On the Satur
day evening of said meeting I went
with weeping multitudes, bowed be
fore the stand and prayed earnestly
for mercy. In the midst of a solemn
struggle of soul an impression was
ma le on my mind as though a voice
said to me, 'Thy sins arc all forgiven
thee.' Divine liht flashed all around
me, unt-peakable joy sprung up in my
soul. I rose to my feet, opened my
ryes, and it really seemed as if I was
in heaven; the trees, the leaves on
them, and everything seemed, and I
really thought were praising God. My
mother raised the shout, my christian
friends crowded round me and joined
me in praising God ; and though I
have been since in many instances
uufaitMul, yet I never have for one
moment doubted that the Lord did
then and there, forgive my sins aud
give me religion."
There was a great revival of relig
ion in 101, and he attended sever
al camp meetings of the Methodists
and Presbyterians, aud in the spring
of 1802 he was formally permitted to
"exercise his gifts as an cxhorter."
The "Kentucky boy," end the "boy
preacher." as he was called, en.cred
with great ardor, upon his duties in
the Waynesville circuit. and before his
twentieth year was widely known for
his zeal and eloquence. I n l?0(i, he
and about twenty Kentucky preach
ers attended the conference in east
Tennessee, at Ebenczcr church, Nelli
chuckie, and he was ordained a dea
con by Bishop Ashbury. Several
traveling preachers had been placed
on probation for the ofliec of deacon,
but many fell off, owing to the priva
tions they had to endure. lie gives
us this insight into the hard times
which prevailed :
I think I received about $10 this
vear (1K1C), but many of our preach
ers did not receive half that amount.
There were hard times in those west
ern wilds ; many, very many pious
and useful proarhers were, literally
starved in a location. I do not mean
that ther were starved for want of
food ; for, though it was tough, yet
the preachers generally got enough
to eat But Ihcy did not generally re
ceive in a wfeole vear money enough
to get them a suit r.f clothes ; and if
people, and preachers too, had not
dressed in home-spun clothing, and
the good sisters had not made and
presented their preachers with cloth
ing, they generally must retire from
itinerant life, go to work and clothe
themselves. Money was very scarce
in the country at this early day, but
some of the very best men God ever
made, breasted the storms, endured
poverty, and triumphantly planted
Methodism in this western world."
When in his 25th year, Peter Cart
wright thought it his duty to marry,
and was accordingly joined in mar
riage to Frances Gaines, on the 18th
of August, 1818, his wife's nineteenth
birthday. At the conference at Lib
erty Hill, Tennessee; held in October,
180$, he was elected and ordained an
Elder by Bishop McKendre. In the
course of the 5-ear 1809 his father
died, leaving him to settle his little
estate, which, owing to the forms of
law, took him several months "the
longest time," he said, "I ever had
from the work of traveling preacher
in fifty years.
Cartwright wrote the autobigrapby
from which we quote in 1 850, and
makes in it many allusions to slavery,
which have lost their interest from
the crowning triumph of emancipa
tion. It will suffice to say on that
point that although he was brought
up in a slave State, he regarded hu
man bondage as a "domestic, political
and moral evil," and showed that this
was not merely a view of the ques
tion in the abstract by the satisfac
tion with which, for in -t a nee, he tells
how a family in the Breckeur dgc cir
cuit set their slavc3 free, and that the
cud of that family was pci-.u-c. lie
also says with christian enthusiasm :
"I have had glorious revivals of re
ligion among the slaves, and have
heard the swelling shout of christian
victory from the dying negro as he
entered the cold waters of the river
In 1S23, Mr. Cartwright removed
from the Cumberland district and
traveled through Illinois, in quest of
a home, settling the year following in
Sangamon county, at that time peo
pled only by a few hVrdy and enter
prising pioneers. After a few vears
he was elected to the Legislature,
wherein his rcadiaes.? at reply and
resolute spirit made him the victor in
many contentious into which he was
drawn. He soon retired from politics
aud ever afterward devoted himself
exclusively to the duties of his min-istr-.
He attended annual confer
ences with a most unfailing regulari
ty for a series of years, and was al
ways a conspicious- member. Year
after vear he attended camp meetings,
finding his greatest happiness in the
good fruits which followed his preach
ing. He was a delegate to numerous
general conferences, and retained his
interest in the spread of religion to
the last. Writing in I800, he said
that he "had traveled eleven circuits
and twelve districts, and received iu
to the Methodist Episcopal church,
ten thousand persons." Worn out
from his labors, and weakened by the
infirmities of age, he awaited deatt
calmly, and will now repose among
the western people, whom he loved
and devotedly served.

A stronger proof of the difference
between the social condition of Brit
ish and Americau society could scarce
ly be found than the fact that, while
English gentlemen of position and
fortune are at a loss what to do
with their sons, inasmuch as they
with the exception of the eldest, will
be so poor, afllucnt Americans, on the
other hand, find themselves in a quan
dary about their b)ys present and
future, because t'jcy are, or will be,
so rich. Each day" the difficulty in

The wealth of this country has
augmenlcd 60 rapidlv since tlir war, i
that many men in Ac" l ork, ami a
considerable number of them in IMiil

ies, who have only two or three chil
dren, find themselves in a condition to
bequeath to each of them pome sixty
or seventy thousand dollars a year.
In England, where alone out of this
country large fortunes ere common,
the possession of such a fortune, or
the certainty of inheriting it, is uut
often a moral st&mblintr block to a
young man. The stumblcrs are, rath-j
er, those who, having Gve hundred a
j-ear, endeavor to live with men who j
have fifteen thousand. No doubt no
torious instances of extravagance.and
consequent bankruptcy, may be ap
pointed to among peers and wealthy
country gentlemen ; but, taken as a
class, the percentage of those who go
to the bad is extremely small.
It was once said by a keen observ
er, who was no particular friend of
the peerage, that it would be difficult
to take, bap-hazard, any two dozen
men from the various classes of socie
ty and pen-onally respectable as the
fcamc number of " Dukes. Whether it
be the possession of several of those
five thousand pounds a year which
Miss Sharp felt sure would enable her
to be respectable, or that noblamc
obii'ic. it is true that the number of
men of this order who, in the longjtion, he declared his intention as
run. turn out badlv, forms a very
small percentage. We suspect the
truth to lc that, with all their
and self-indulgence, a young man who
knows, almost from infancy, that the
vast estates over which his eyes range
will all one day be his, becomes im
bued with a sense of moral responsi
bility, which, although for a time dor
mant, is rarely, especially when
among his own people, lost.

rnrtbrr Reduction of the Ktntc Debt.
Puring the month of September,
while thewhole Commonwealth fairly
rocked with political excitement, the ,
Slate debt of Pennsylvania was re
duced three hundred and twenty six
thousand dollars, quietly and without
any show or flourish of trumpets,
without any attempt to use it for
electioneering purposes, but simply
as a matter of duty and economy.
The men who did this work were first
Mr. Mackey,.thc State Treasurer,
second, John" F. Hartranft, the Auditor-General,
and third Governor
Geary. It would be hard to find in
the "annal of Pennsylvania three
nu n who have been more villainously
abused than these three. Charged
with dishonesty, peculation and
bribery of all sorts, they respond by
this simple action of continuing the
reduction of the State debt, at which
they have been engaged all along-
The State Treasury is in a condition
so prosperous as to warrant this, be
cause the Auditor-General has faith

Treasury and guarded the receipts
and expenditures, and because he and
the State Treasurer and Judge
Brewster, the Attorney-General, hav e

In this respect the record of this
State administration has been sub
jected to a most searching and rigid
scrutiny, and in the past canvass
everything has been fully and fairly
examined and explained, and the ad
ministration most triumphantly vindi
cated. 1 es, while the Opposition

Hartranft, despite the noble endorse
ment he has received from the peo
ple of the Commonwealth, there
conies to us this quiet and unpretend
ing announcement that the debt has
been again reduced daring the month
of September. This brings with it a
farther reduction of the load of inter
est, and by ho much increases the
resulting surplus annually in the
Treasury. The favorite nostrum of
the Democrats is to reduce the taxes
so niuch as to prevent any surplus,
nnl thu-j arre.-t tue progress ot ueot
reduction and render the debt perma
nent. Against this stupid policy we
have always used our utmost exer
tions and shall still continue to do so.
We believe in maintaining such a
balance in the Treasury as always to
make sure of the payment of interest
and of all other accruing liabilities,
and we do not believe there is an
reason or sense in the policy of im
poverishing the Treasury, since the
natural result of it would be to lead
to an accumulation of interest on out
standing unpaid warrants, as is the
wretched custom here in I'hiladelphia.
In the speech delivered by General
Hartranft at Norristown to the con
gratulatory procession, after thc'clcc-
Governor, of resolutely enforcing the
law against all parties against whom
the Commonwealth have any any
ju.st claim. We have, therefore, the
n.suranec that under his administra
tion tlic policy that has rendered the
State finances so prosperous and led
to the large and steady reduction of
the public debt will be adhered to and
continued. This, wc are confident, is
what the majority of the tax-payers
of the Commonwealth must ardently
desire. Since that debt was created
it had been a terrible incubus upon
the growth and prosperity of the
State end all its interests and invest-
nients. The pconlc have been taxed
! severely to meet the regularly nccru-
1 ing interest, and at the present time
Jour payments arc still large. In all
probability we have paid the whole
! of the principal nearly twice over.
and yet still the weight is heavy and
the lightening proceeds very gradu
ally. If wc could once pay oST thewhole
debt and thus get rid of it finally, we
could cither abolish a considerable
part of our present taxation, or apply
the resulting surplus to the extension
and improvement of educational fa-
cilities ell over the Commonwealth,
doing the best thing in getting rid of
!Hhlnsr Ica! Pencil.
The wood most commonly used in
the manufacture of lead pencils is the
Florida cedar, except an inferior
grade, c hiefly for the use of carpen
tors, which is made from white pine.
The lead is the well-known "plumba
go," or graphite, of the best quality
of which there is now only one avail
able mine, that Wing in Asiatic
Siberia. Hence the limited pupply
and high price. Many pencils arc
now made by grinding and cleaning
what was formercly regarded as re
fuse in working the plumbago, and
making a paste by mixing it with
clay. In mixing the clay and
graphite great care must be taken in
selecting and cleaning the clay and
getting the proper proportions. The
mixture, after being well kneaded, is
placed in a large receiver, and forced
out through a small groove at the
(bottom in the shape of a thread of
the thickness and style required
i either square, octagonal, or round.
This thread, or lead write, is cut in
bars of the proper length, then
straightened, dried at a moderate
lead is colored by various pigments.
The wood, after being thoroughly
seasoned, is cut in thin strips and
dried again, then cut into 6trips of
pencil length. These strips are
grooved by machinery, then carried
on a belt to the gluing room, where
the lead is glued in the groove, and
the other half of the pencil glued on
After being dried under pressure,
they are sent to the turning-room, and
rounded, squared, or made' octagonal
by a very ingenious little machine,
wh.ich passes them through three sets
of cutters, and drops them ready for
polishing or coloring; the former is
done on lathes by boys, and the latter
by a machine which holds the brush
and turns the pencil fed to it through
a hopper. After the pencil is polished
it is cut in an exact length by a cir
cular saw, and the end is cut smooth
bv a drop knife, the pencil resting on
air iron bed. The stamping is done
thus ; a hollow die is heated, the gold
or silver foil is laid on the pencil,
which rests on an iron bed, and the
die is then pressed.
Moore, the foadrnuMl.
The people of Ebensburg are con
siderably excited over the shooting
of Michael Moore, the condemned
murderer, by the Sheriff of the coun
ty. It appears that Moore was not
attempting un escape at the l'-ixn;
though he had made some progress
toward freedom by tunnelling1 partly
through the wall of his cell. It is the
custom, for prisoners whose death
warrants are made out, to be trans
ferred to a facial cell arranged for
the purpose of holding them with
greater certainty, and it was f;r the
purpose of transferring Moore that
Sheriff Bonacker visited his cell in
company with ex-Sheriff Meyers and
another. Moore threatened to bra'u
anyone who entered, and brandished a
piece of drain-pipe with which he swore
he would do it. Neither of the men
dared enter the cell ; so the Sheriff,
from outside the bars demanded the
prisoner's surrender, threatening fo
shoot him if he did not. Moore stiil
refused to submit, and the Sheriff
fired two shots at him, both tuking
effect one in the arm and the other
in the leg. Moore still resisted Don
acker, but, after some persuasion per
mitted ex-Sheriff Meyers to handcuff
him, after which he was successfully
removed to new and more secure
quarters. Moore's day of execution
has been Gxed for Wednesday, No
vemlxT 27, between the hours of ten
a. m. and two p. m.

At a watering place a few weeks

lawyer who had a room on the low

Already much over half of the old
business district has been rebuilt, a-id
so much larger and higher are the
new buildings than those which they
replace, that there is really more
room in those already put up than in
all that were destroyed. No one
who saw the great business blocks
falling in windrows before the fire a
year ago, could have dreamed of such
a rapid rebuilding. Here is the Sher
man House, in size 161 by 1S1 feet,
and seven stories high, and costing
$G:"0,000, and the Pacific Hotel, cov
ering a whole square 1SG by 322 feet,
six stories high, and costing $1,500,
000 both of stone, and both already
rebuilt to the roof. Here is the Pal
mer House, 2t$by 254 feet, and built
as fire-proof as iron and brick and
stone can make it, which is to cost
the bewildering sum of $2,500,000,
and is so soon about half competed.
Here is the Michigan Southern Depot,
172 by COO feet, of substantial iron
and stone, almost finished, which will
contain three-quarters of a mile of
track, and will cost a round million
dollars. Here is the Camber of Com
merce, looking as solid as the hills
and almost as handsome, which cost
$320,000, and is again noisy with
business. Here is the vast business
block of J. V. FarwelL & Co., of
which if you should go only nee ar
ound each salesroom, you would make
a trip of a mile aud a half! And every
where are to be seen business blocks
with fronts as elegant as plate glass
and carved stone can make them, cost
ing all the -ray from $50,000 to 250,
000 each. Madison street, for in
stace, in the distance of about half a
mile, has no less than seventeen build
ings, each of which cost $100,000 or
more. In the business district alone,
the buildings erected or under Way
cost about forty million dollars, and
set side by sied, would reach in an
unbroken row just ten miles! One
wonders where all the money came
from to build them, but while the I e
burned up about $200,000,000 worth
of property, there was still considera
ble left. In addition to that, about
$10,000,000 of insurance has been re
ceived, and a great deal more money
has been borrowed in other cities and
Uut my story must stop somewhere,
and must stop far short, any how, of

done in this busy wonderful first
year after the fire. It has been good
