since has also passed the Senate, and
only requires the President's signa
ture to Income a law.
liovEitxo Geaby has issued a
proclamation setting forth that the
Commissioners of the Sinkinpr Fund,
Francis Jobdax, John F. IIart
raxit and Robert W. Mackey, re
port and certify, that during the year
commencing Ioc., lft IiS 1 and end

four hundred an J teventy-fiijr thoug
and two hundred and thirteen dollar
and fifty ceidg ($2,4:C,213,50) of the
State debt has been paid and extin
guished. A few more years of Re
publican rule will entirely wipe out
our State debt, and with it all taxa
tion for State purposes, leaving the
people of this Commonwealth, the!
most prosperous and the least taxed
of any State in the Union.
Our readers w ill remember that
after the October election the Democ
racy were quite liberal in their charg
es that the Hon. L. D. Shoemaker
and other leading Republicans of
Luzerne county had resorted to brib
ery to make votes for tbe Republican
State ticket Mr. Shoemaker and the
other Republicans thus charged, de
manded a legal investigation of their
acts, which has just been had, and
which fully exculpates them from all
the charges brought against them
The prosecution was not able to sus
tain a single point in this allegation
and the acnuital of Mr. Shoemaker
and his associate was complete. The
same result would attend similar
charges made against Republicans
in other parts of the State, if brought
to a legal trial.
The future of the Xtw York Tri
bune is just now a subject of interest
and of much speculation among jour
nalists as well as the public general
ly. That the Tribune fell away
from its high estate during the late
campaign, under the editorial man
agement of Mr. Whitelaw Reid is
an undeniable fact, and its loss of
caste and influence, we candidly be
lieve, did much to hasten the sad and
tragic death of its original founder.
It is a very valuable property, de
pendent however upon public good
will and confidence, and its proprie
tors, like sensible business men, are
casting about for a fitting successor
to its dead editor-in-chief. A number
of prominent newspaper men have
loen spoken of as Mr. Greeley's
probable successor, but it appears to
be a settled fact that tbe position has
been offered to Vice President Col
fax, and that he is now in negotia
tion with the stockholders. Mr. Col
fax is an experienced journalist and
a vigorous writer, and while not pos
sessing the ability of Mr. Greeley,
his connection with the paper would
do much towards restoring it to pub
lic conGdencc and at the same time
prove the shrewd business tact of its
managers, for of course Mr. Colfax
would not identify himself with it,
unless it resumed its former position
within the fold of the Republican
party. We presume that a few days
will decide the matter, as it is under
stood that with the usual new year
prospectus the future editorial man
agement and proposed policy of the
journal will be announced.
Senator Pomeroy Las introduced
a bijl looking to the suppression of
the traffic in ardent spirits in the
District of Columbia and the Nation
al Territories' over which Congress
has power. The movement is said to
originate with the National Temper
ance Society and contemplates the
most stringent measures against the
traffic in intoxicating liquors. The
bill provides :
First. That no persou shall be, al
lowed to manufacture, import, sell,
exchange, barter, give, or dispose of
any intoxicating liquors, to be used
as a beverage in the Territories of
the United States or 5n the District
Second. That regularly licensed
druggists niay sell for medicinal and
scientiGc purposes and mechanic arts
only : provided, that they shall label
and mark distinctly, as other poisons
and medicines, and keep a book of
registry, showing the name of person
to whom delivered, the quantity, da:e
of sale, and on whose order or pre
scription the sale was made, and
s rich registry to be submitted as re
quired to the inspection of the Roard
of Police in this district, or before
any comrt in a trial at law.
Third. That any licensed drug
gists or other persons, violating
the provisions of this act, shall be
subject to a fine f not less than $500,
and to an imprisonment of three
months, and, in default of payment
of the fine, to three months additional
imprisonment, and to be also liable
for all damages occuring from the
sale or illegal disposal of intoxicating
liquors as a beverage.
ry hours. Prayer and preaching in
the churches, temperance societies
in the salAialh schools, and jftitions
to the Constitutional Conve t.on to
insert a prohibitory e!use in the
forthcoming constitution were recom
mended, and this shambling, limp
ing, half-scared resolution, on the sub
ject of the fast approaching contest
invited and insisted upon by them
selves, was passed :
Resolved, That the Legislature,
according to the praver of many
thousands of petitioners, havinggiven
the opportunity to vote upon the
question of licenses, in the counties
and cities of the Commonwealth, on
the third Friday of March, 1873 next,
this Convention holding that the
result of such a vote cannot be accept
ed by the friends of Temperance as a
test of the sentiments of the people
on the questions involved, and doubt
ing the efficiency of the measure to
accomplish the suppression of the liq
uor trade, but hopeful that the effort
will tend to that end. and knowing
that enemies will interpret non-action
to mean opposition do nevertheless
recommend the embracing of the oc
casion to vote against the longer con
tinuance of the legality of a business
so baneful in its influence and so in
jurious to the religious, social, indus
trial and pecuniary interests of the
people as the liquor traffic in all the
past has proven to be.
What is there practical in all this ?
Is the public car to bo forever vexed
with this constant, unremitting daw
dle about an evil which all sane men
admit, and which moral suasion has
signally failed to remedy f If it can
be suppressed only by law, then vote
for tbe law, and use your best efforts
to induce others so to do. If busi
ncss is meant then organize for it, and
fight at the polls fur your convic
tions. Don't give up the fight in ad
vance, and admit coming defeat by a
half-hearted resolution trying to break
your fall. Such moral cowardice is
contemptible. This is not a religious
cause, and the attempt to make it so
only weakens it. Thousands of men
counted irreligious, and over whom
the churches have no influence, will
vote for local option. It is a great
social reform in its broadest sense,
looking to the good of the entire
State, and cannot be dwarfed nor
limited by petty associations nor en
forced by mouthing declaratious.
The opportunity is waiting, the
hour is ripe fur action. The cause
should be presented to the people,
and worked for at the polls, as any
other cause is worked for, on its mer
its. And vet this State Convention,as-
suniing to have charge of the subject,
shows the white feather in the only
resolution it passed referring to the
decision, which it invited, at the bal
lot box. What would be thought
and said of a political convention
that would thus act, on the eve of an
imiorant campaign ? The truth is
this Pittsbnrgh Convention was a
dead failure, and our conviction is,
not intending to be personal, that its
leading members were so wrapped up
in their own individuality, that they
overlooked the practical object of
their assemblage ; or they fear, and
have no stomach for the battle they

I'VULIC lands and education.
The President's measure regarding
the proceeds of sales of public lands
lor common school puqoses, has pass
ed the House, and will come up in the
Senate in a few days. It should be
put through without delay as a meas
ure of necessity and justice to the
millions or youth who at present are
deprived of a common school educa
tion, cspeciallr in the feouthcrn states.
The stability of Republican govern
ment mar depend on the success of
the bill, "its terms provide for the
distribution of the fund among all the
States, for the first five years, in pro
portion to their illiteracy as shown by
the census; and after five years, the
distribution is to be according to
proportionate school attendance in the
several states, in the southern states,
the effect of the operation of the law
must be a sure and early return to fra
ternal relations with the other states.
The impulse of the measure in that
direction is stated by Mr. Scars, the
manager of the Pcabody fund, as very
important and beneficial to the peace
of the country. The fact that Con
gress and the President show a prae
tical and substantial interest in the
education and prosperity of the South
ern people by proposing such liberal
ity in lifting from their shoulders the
burden of ignorance on the part of tbe
white and black masses, can not fail
of appreciation by their influential cit
izens. After five vcars of successful
working of common scLools in those
states, the terrorism of ignorance will
no longer threaten the peace of the
country as it now does. 1 ho masses
will know their rights, and knowing,
dare maintain them against such dem
agogues ns now presume to lead them
only to bring government and order
So far as the public lands arc con
cerned, if monopolies or individuals
desire them under the proposed law,
they can be secured upon payment of
the value a3 heretofore, except that
the giving away of the lands to mon
opolists for private emolument and
without a consideration will be pre
vented in future. The proceeds of the
sale of lands during the past fiscal
year amounted to $2,500,000, and this
will be likely to be maintained during
the next generation, at the end of
which period there will bo no excuse
for any man born or reared in the
country wanting a respectable educa
tion. There appears to be nothing so
important now before the country as
the prompt passage of this bill into a

Edwin Forrest, the tragedian, fell
dead this morning while dressing at
his residence on North Broad street.
Forrest's servants repaired to his
room before ten o'clock this morning,
as it was later than his usual hour
for cominff down. They found him
lying on the bed apparently suffering
from apoplexy. Forrest had been ex

idently partly completed dressing,
having been adjusting bis necktie
when overpowered. He died In
about half an hour after being dis
covered. He leaves no immediate
relations, his only sister having died
several years since.

Louisville, December 10. A sen
sation was created this morning at
Elizabethtown, Ky., forty-Gve miles
from this city, by the commencement
of a suit in behalf of u llliam M
Lent, of San Francisco, against
Philip Arnold, John Slack and other
parties engaged in the recent diamond
operations in Colorado, for $35,000.
The safe at Arnold's residence, in
Elizabethtown, and valuables held by
1 homas, 1'ark & Co., of that place,
were attached upon an affidavit of
Lent, through his counsel, alleging
that the above Bum was obtained
from him by Arnold and Slack by
means, in the language of the affida
vit, of fraudulent representations by
them to the plaintiff in reference to
diamonds, rubies and emeralds being
found upon lands in certain districts
of country, to wit : In Colorado
Territory, which representations were
in pursuance of a conspiracy between
Arnold, Slack and others, for the pur
pose of deceiving and misleading the
plaintiff and the public gcncraliy in
reference to the value of said lands,
and by means of which Arnold and
Slack fraudulently obtained from the
plaintiff the consideration of sales by
them to the plaintiff of information
of the locality of said lands, and of
said right of discovery of the locality
of Faid precious stones. No such
diamonds, rubies and emeralds were
found upon or in any such land, but
were scattered and planted therein
and thereon by said Arnold aiid Slack
and their confederates, for the purpose
of deceiving and defrauding the plain
tiff and public at large, by inducing
the belief that said diamands and
other precious stones were found upon
and in said lands in their natural for
mation and production. The plaintiff
says the defendant, rhino Arnold,
igrate to America by promises of
agents of a so-called colonization
society. The Italian government is
also reported to be not unfavorable to
the general exodus.
A well-informed western paper
says : "France is a tinder-box, and
President Thiers is sitting on the

fraudulent intent to cheat, hinder and

sell, convey and otherwise dispose of
his property with the same intent.
