FIRE! TIRE! FIRE!
PHILADELPHIA, May 30, 1863
M. C. Sadler, Esq.,
PEAR Eta :—During the night of May 19.1863, our
Grocery and Provision Store, at North Second and Wil
low Streets, took fire at about 2 o'clock a. m., and as
the inure was a twirsteryvrov4 hallilleg it burnt rapidly ;
and before the fire engines could act upon the ire, our
whole stock of goods, including much comhustible ma
terial, and amounting to over $2 LOG,. were -wholly de
stroyed. We had one of your No. 11 Chilled Iron Safes,
which was in the hottest part of the fire, and it came
out of the tire not to the least injured, except.the mel
ting off of the name, plate and paint. The contents
inside were not affected in the least, and we consider
the Safe just as good a protection asainet fire now as
before, and shall use it hereafter with igcreased confi
dence. The lock works as . perfectly as before the fire.
Yours truly, M , MANITSk CROFT,
Late 429 North Second at.
Attontioll to the above certificate :14 particularly re
quested, Ng it is th e hy e t W e l of I.ILLLRIS SAFES in.

I would say to all parties who want a Fire and
Burglar-proof Pafe that MUTE'S WROUGHT AND
DRILLED IRON BARN are much the, cheapest and
the only real Fire and Ilurglar-proof Safes now made;
and to those who want simply a Fire-proof, I would say
that LILLIE'S WROUGHT IRON SAFE is fully
in all respects to any of the most approved makers, and
is sold at fully one-third less price.

TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 23. 1863
THE DEMOCRATIC PRESS OF TEE
STATE ON THE NOMINATIONS.
The Reading Democrat, published at the
home of Mr, Clymer, Pro
The Democratic State Convention, which
met at Harrisburg on. Wednesday" last, has
given to the people of this Commonwealth two
candidates of whom they have every reason to
feel proud. In the choice of Hon. George W.
Woodward for Governor, and Hon. Walter 11.
Lowrie for Judge of the Supreme Court, the
Convention has shown its regard Or the high
est considerations of patriotism and public
duty, and a proper sense of the importance of
the present crisis, which demanded of i% mem
hers such action as would raise the party it
represented far above the paltry level of expe
diency and personal preference, and place it
upon the exalted platform of principle, honor
The Convention transacted its business
promptly. Its proceedings were not impeded
or delayed by protracted discussions upon mi
nor points of differenCe, or factious disputes in
regard to important questions. The nomina
tion for Governor, it is true, was not made
without a spirited contest, in which the friends
of the several prominent candidates manifest
ed, as was but natural, a warm interest; but
the prevalent feelings, during the several bal
lotings, were these of friendliness and gene
rous rivalry which clearly evinced a pre-deter
mination to be satisfied with and cordially con
cur in the choice of the majority, upon whom
soever it might fall.
Berke county felt att extraordinary interest
in the Gubernatorial nomination, from the
fact that one of her own citizens was a promi
nent candidate before the Convention, and with
the most flattering prospects of success. It
would be an effectuat:, to serf that his failure
to re..eive the nomination, particularly after
his vote had steadily risen until it came within
five of the required number, was not a disap
pointment to his many friends, in and out of
the Conyention. But that disappointment is
'couples with no feelings of dissatisfaction, in
view of t he i excellent choice that was made;
and no man more readily or cordially endorses
the nomination of Judge Woodward than Mr.
Clymer himself. In his speech to the Conven
r tion, after its work was dope, and in private
conversation with friends, he has exhibited an
unselfishness and a magnanimity that do him
honor and prove the sincerity of his attach
ment to the true interests of the Democratic
party. The handsome vote he received was a
rare compliment to one so comparatively young
in public life, and he has reason to view it with
a gratification and pride that even the nomi
nation itself could not have much enhanced.
With such a feeling in regard to the action of
the Convention, on the part of Mr. Clymer and
his friends, it will not be necessary for us to
assure the Democracy of the State that Old
Berks will heartily support the ticket as nomi
nated, and give it one of the largest majorities,
if not the largest, she has ever cast.
Judge Woodward is, we believe, a native of
Luzerne county, but has resided for several
years past in Philadelphia. He is a gentle
man of irreproachable private character, a
learned lawyer, and in his political convictions,
an unwavering Democrat, of the Constitutional
Union school, He was the Democratic caucus
candidate for 'United Stated SotlfitOf in 1845,
but was defeated in the Legislative Convention
by the treachery of several members Who were
elected as Democrats. In 1852, he was elected
a Judge of the Supreme Court of Pennsylva
nia, which office be still bolds, and in which
he has earned the reputation of being one of
the ablest jurists that ever sat upon that bench.
Mature in years, experienced in public affairs,
firmly fined in his principles, positive in char
acter, and with a mind and disposition pectin
arl, fitted for the efficient exercise of admin
istrative duties, be is admirably qualified for
the responsible position to which the Democ
racy of the State have nominated him.
Judge Lowrie is a , Western man—at present a
resident of Pittsburg.' He was elected to the
Supreme Bench in 1840, and has discharged
his judicial duties with a firmness, an ability
and an impartiality which have won for him
the highest respect and confidence of the peo
ple. His unanimous re-nomination by the
State convention was a compliment and an
honor that were well deserved:
The Lewisburg Argus is eloquent on the sub
ject, giving vent to its feelings in the following
We to-day hoist the names of Hon. George
W. Woodward, of Philadelphia, and Walter H.
boarrie, of Allegheny county, as the standard
bearers of the level men of Pennsylvania, for
the great political contest be ween fanaticism
and treason and patriotism and loyalty which
is now upon the eve of precipitation. For Gov
ernor, the invulnerable, honest, great minded
and patriotic Woodward is presented. No• man
in this Stale is more qualified in ability, in
tegrity (private and public) and deep rooted
and unyielding fidelity to the Constitution, the
Union. the vital interests of the country, for
the gubernatorial chair of this great Common
wealth, in the present fearful national distrac
tion, than he. Firm, persevering and unerring
in the performance of duty and in the defense
of right, he is every inch a MAN, and his moral
character and impartial and upright bearing
upon the Supreme bench have made him a sub
ject for emulation and secured for him a high
estimation and a wide degree of confidence in
the hearts Of the people_ We rejoiced to see the
great animation and delight with which his
nomination was hailed at the Convention.
Cheer after cheer rung through the capitol for
the apace of half an hour, during which it
seemed as though the tremendous audience
present was magnified into ten times the real
number, and the air was filled with waiving
hats and arms, while the floor trembled beneath
the multitude of active feet. In this animated
and exulting scene we behold the certain and
glorious triumph of Mr. Woodward reflected.
Men of Pennsylvania, we have chosen an un
equaled statesman and patriot for our leader ;
flock to his standard, and save our State from
the heel of the despot and the ravages of the
audacious invader. Support him, and you will
sustain a man who will ever have an eye single
to the honor of our State, the rights and liber
nee of her citiiena, and In whose keeping we
can trust with safety.
For Supreme Judge, Mr. Lowrie is presented.
The manner in which he was nominated (by
acclamation) is a powerful evidence of, the es
teem and confidence in which he is held. His
ability for the position is unquestionable. He
is well worthy of the confidence which the
Democracy have reposed in him at this perilous
period. We-shall support him to the farthest
extent,of our , ability and influence.
The ConVention was composed of the most
talented and patriotic men of thy 1141091 and
nobly and creditably did they execute the work
which they were chosento perfoini. The eyes
of the people were , anxiously turned to catch
the first appeerance of their deliberations, and
PRICE TWO CENTS
We are certain that no honest 155412, Democrat
or Republican, will be disappointed on learning
the results. The contest between democratic
republicanism and despotic centralized power
will soon open ; let patriots flock to the stand
ard of liberty and right, resolved to win.
The Pottsville Standard says :
The nomination of the Hon. George W.
Woodward was greeted with the wildest enthu
siasm. The unspotted integrity of his charac
ter, his eminence as a jurist, his large experi
ence, his quiet but firm adherence to the prin
ciples of the Democratic party, and the high
respect with which he is regarded by all and
every class of citizens, render him worthy an
honor which he will adorn. Judge Woodward
was, in the year 1852, appointed a Justice of
the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania by Gov.
Bigler, to fill a vacancy occasioned by the
death of the Hon. Richard Coulter. He was
nominated and elected the same year by the
Democratic party to that position, which he
has held ever since, with honor to himself and
advantage to his native State. While he is no
politician, in the general sense of the term,
yet he is clear, decided and earnest in his ap
proval of the principles of the Democratic
party. He has never held an office except
that of Justice of the Supreme Court, in which
be has obtained an enviable reputation ; but
was widely known and respected as a member
of the Convention to revise the Constitution
of the State of Pennsylvania. In that Con
vention George W. Woodward was but a young
man, yet his ability, clearness and legal acu
men caused 'him even then to be regarded as
one of the most promising men in Pennsylva

Ofthe Hon. Walter H. Lowrie, candidate for
Justice of the Supreme Court, it is needless to

A Harrisburg correspondent of the Pitts
burg Post truly remarks :
The nomination of Judge Woodward for Gov
ernor has excited the enthusiasm of the De
moeracy to the highest pitch. It is one of
those events that does not need to be argued
up. It strikes the mind of every one as just
the right nomination under all the circum
stances. Witte men, Clymer men, Cass men,
and all manner of men, except the corrupt
and envenomed fanatics, who support an im
becile national administration for the sake of
the plunder it affords them, admit that Wood
ward's nomination was a master-stroke of pol
icy, whether regard be had to the interests of
the Democratic party or to the interests of the
state and the nation. Already every Demo
orat feels the thrill of coming triumph, and the
Republicans read in the radiant countenances
of the joyful and confident Democracy, the
dawn that awaits them, and which no effort of
the "Loyal Leaguers" can avert.
The unanimousi nomination of Judge Low
rie was unexpected by everybody. His con
duct on the bench, ever since his elevation to
it, has been acceptable to the people ; and the
sound principles he laid down in the case of
the Jeffereonian, as welt as the good pluck he
exhibited, had given him a hold on the affec
tions of the. Democracy which few public men
of the present day posses East of the moun
tains he will run a tremendous vote, and I take
it for granted that the west will give him the
hearty support he so eminently deserves.
The West Brinch Democrat says :
We have only time to say in this issue that

They will see that the rights of the people are
not trifled with. Next week we will speak in
full of the proceedings. The meeting was one
of the largest and most enthusiastic ever held
in the State. Me Republic.
We extract the following from the Philadel
phia correspondence of the New York Tribune:
"We are gratified beyond measure at the
whole•souled promptitude of NeW York- What
Governor Seymour has done to aid the good
work has been a surprise as well as a gratifica
tion. We did not expect as much at his hands.
Your 7th regiment has played a most, important
and useful part, and is entitled to the lasting
gratitude of all Pennsylvania. In New Jersey
Governor Parker has surprised ue in the same
way, 011 Toothy he addressed one of the
returned regiments in very appropriate terms.
He told them that if New Jersey was anywhere
to be defended, it was on Pennsylvania soil—
that one veteran' among them was equal to a
dozen raw recruits, and urged them to again
march for the defelibe of their firesides. The
appeal was made in response to a dispatch from
Gov. Curtin that he would urge these returned
men to fly to Harrisburg."
In times of political excitement the radical
politicians hurl their epithets at conservative
men with a freedom to which no other party can
ever hope to attain. But when serious danger
seems to threaten our homes the sober truth
comes out, and men know on ihom to rely.—
This correspondent is not alone in his surprised
awakening to the truth. Similar exp,ressions
of wonderment and delight come from radical
papers and people in all parts of the country.
Why did they not expect patriotism from Gov.
Seymour and Governor Parker ? Because they
believed the countless falsehoods manufactured
abo u t area; by unscrupulous slanderers, who
now shrink from the memory of their iniquity.
"The man who votes for Seymour votes for a
traitor," said Mr. Raymond, President of the
New York radical convention. " Miscreants
like Seymour," said the Rev. Dr. Bellows.—
"There is no Seymourite who does not know
that to vote for his candidate is to support
treason," said the Tribune. " Seymour ought
t o be hone said Major General Cassius M.
Clay. "We brand the whole crusade of Sey
mour as treasonable, " said the New York
Times.. It is not out of place to record these
expression just now, when. men in their calm
senses, and radicals, frightened at impending
danger, learn that words are vain, and know
where to look for safety. It is not so surpri
sing that men who only read the newspapers
which are devoted to such abuse as we have
quoted should have been misled as to the char
qeter of Governor Seymour. Governer Parker
was abused in just the same way,•and with the
same motives and the•eame disregard of truth.
The Pennsylvania people who have been mis
led are opening their eyes and minds, and they
may also add to their new stock of information
the fact that a very large proportion of the
New York soldiers who have gone to the help
of the sister State are men who voted for Gov.
Seymour, and are called Copperheads by the
New York radicals. We will not arouse con
. tradiction by claiming more than half of them
' as Seymour voters, but we apprehend that no
radical paperbereabouts will deny that at least
half of them are of that class. If it should be
denied, we will claim the.full proportion which
we have reason to know of.
Now in the face of the facts, what melan
choly reflections must the men have who stand:
on the record as having uttered such language
as we have quoted If their words had been
true; we might long ago have despaired of the
result of the war. As it is, the country begins-
to appreciate the fact that there is a vast dif
ference between that "loyalty" which consists
in supporting the administration and its mea
sures, and the true loyalty which supports the
government, the Union and the Constitution.
The former is narrow, sectional and selfish,
leading to disunion in the North, and conse
quent ruin. The latter is broad, patriotic,
American; and by it only will this country be
saved.—Journal of Commerce.
THE TRAVELER MILROY:
Some people call this bloody-minded Aboli
tiopist a General—we do not think he is muck
in that line, but all will agree that he is a fast
travelbr, and knows how to run from an enemy
as well as any other boaster in the field. The
Pittsburg Chronicle, a paper sufficiently Admin
istration to page for a . " loyal" sheet, remarks
We hear on all sides praises of Milroy's
heroic defense. Notwithstanding this, we be
lieve it will turn out that the abandonment of
Winchester• was a great blunder, if not a die
grace; that it will form the subject of a court
of inquiry; that the force opposed was not
larger than - our own army, although Milroy
Was able to hold his position agekirart thirty
thousand men, and that the retreat wee con
ducted without skill, and with every evidence
of a panic. The strong and well- mounted works
at Winchester were constructed and occupied
by an ample garrison, expressly to prevent an
advance of the enemy down the Shenandoah
valley. The outlying post at Berryville, with
the cavalry there, were designed to guard
against surprise and to check the enemy if he
should menace . Winchester. Yet, Berryville
was surprised and had to be abandoned, and
Winchester was surrounded almost without the
knowledge of its garrisOn. The result was that,
after a show of resistance, the Union troops,
ten or twelve thousand strong, were marched
out from their fortified works, before an attack
ing 'force of but fifteen thousand at the utmost,
leaving all their stores and cannon behind.
The eireumstances of the flight Were moat
humiliating. The cavalry went off in Otte di
rection and the main body of the infantry in
another. Many of the fugitives became the
helpless victims of their audacious pursuers,
and another body, sixteen hundred strong, that
escaped to Hancock, were so disorganized and
demoralized by the absence of their officers that
they fied, like startled sheep, at the mere re
port of an advance of the enemy- At first we
were told that General Milroy had spiked and
abandoned iris guns but had saved his "
lery." This was a mystery among the myste
ries of the liar, until General Milroy himself
tells us that he had lost all his artillery and
How can we ever expect to flamed when
strong and important fortified positions like
Harpeee Ferry 'mad Winchester ere entrusted

How differently the rebels behave under like
cirourrotances, let Donelson, Vicksburg and
Port Hudson attest. Who can now estimate
the deplorable results which may follow the
tame ebandonment of this fortified gateway to
the North ? Sorely Lee has made a mistake
in his late congratulatory dispatch, stating that
Gad had given him this victory.• 'T wits man ,
