M. C. Sadler, Esq., '
Peek FIR :—During the night of May 19.1863, our
Grocery and Prinhiqn store, at North Second and
low streets, took fire at about 2 o'clock a. m., owl al
the store was a two-story wood building it burnt rapidly,
and before the fire engines could act upon the tire, our
whole stock of goods, including much combustible ma
terial, and amounting toover $2 000, were wholly de
stroyed. We had one of your No.ll Chilled Iron Haw,
which was in the hottest partiof the fire, and it came
out of the fire not in the least injured, except the mel
ting off of the name, plate and paint. The contents
inside were not affected in the left; and we consider
the Bete Just en gpc..4 it protection acainst fire now as
before, and shall use it hereafter with Increased confi
dence. The lock works as peeectly as before the fire.

THE' 'DEMOCRATIC PRESS THE
.STAT.E ON THE NOMINATIO474..
The Philadelphia Age, After remarking upon
the astonishing material progress of this coun
try, followed by an equally astonishing decline
in morals; affecting private tranttactions as well
as politics, concludes with the following truth
ful observations :
We had grown rich too fast, and many of the
vices of wealth had begun; to attack the bitek
of our free institutions: We had become in
different as to the manner in which our gov
ernment was administered, and we became
careless as to the men who were elected to
office. All the active pursuits .of life being
highly remunerative, and the salaries of our
public officers bearing no proportion to the re
wards of private industry, inferibrimen only
contended for public station, and= the men of
substemge and worth withdrew from politics
As an immediate consequence of the with
drawal of the beat and wisest men from politics,
.all impartial observers must have perceived,
the decline of our statesmanship. The exam
ples of the great men of the Revolution were
set aside by men who had neither the capacity
nor the high motive to follow t,hem. Political
honors commanding less respect than wealth,
no matter by what means accumulated, were
sought by .the needy for private advancement,
while the passions of the people were appealed
to instead of their reason or their patriotism,
to insure' success. All manner or issues for
eign to theConetitution and to true statesman
ship were introduced:to excite local and sec
tional prejudices, while the true nbjects Of all
great gov,ernments were gradually thrust into
the background. Polities thus 'degenerated
into demagogueism, and statesmanship into the
art of controlling the majority of voters. , Poli
ties were pursued as a craft, and the skill
and industry of the. politician exhibited in
the mode of securing nominations to impor
tant Offices—the patronage of the elected being
claimed as a just reward of that species of
With the decline, of our Stat-eitmen came the
disregard for our public institutions and for
the Constitution of the United States. Dema
gogues 'and men of straw, who had no other
means of acquiring notoriety or introducing
themselves to public favor, availed, themselves
df the prejudices of the people to make con
verts for particular doctrines, with' which the
simple 'theory of our goterninent was per.
verted and undermined. In this manner Anti-
Masonry, Maine-Liquor-Law, Anti 7 R,entiam,
the Irrepressible Conflict, and, at last, Aboli
tionism in its most dangerous and hideous
form, were introduced, dividing the people
into fanatical, sects, and preparing the way. for
Thus, with the increase of material pros
perity and an accumulation of wealth unknown
in the history of other countries,' marohed
hand in hand otir,moral and political. decline,
'until, at last, civil war, joined to Complicated
external relations, threaten' our existence as 'a
nation. In less than a hundred years we have
.reached the.summit of power; ; shall we now
allow ourselves to be precipitated from it, or
shall we return to the simple and virtuous
habits of our ancestors; who regarded the
Constitution as the supreme law of the land,
and obedience to the laws asahe first duty of
the citizen? Shall we again look upon of f ice
as an honor to be bestowed on, our worthiest
citizens ? and shall virtue, talent, integrity and
firmness in the discharge of public duties he
again, as they were in the early days of - the
republic, the principal recommendations to
public station ? If such a change in -our per
verted and vitiated politioal system -were to
follow our present calamities, we should-hum
bly incline our heads to the- decrees of Provi
dence, which chastietie us for our I) VIOL and
improvement—which may fearfully diminish
our material wealth, but leave us sTreat 'na
tion, and a people purified and strengthened
by adversity. -
Our faith is in the•reduperative energy of the
people. They have, during a' protracted, san
guinary strife, developed heroic qualities; and
in the midst of the political confusion attend
ing it proved their unalterable attachment to
the free institutions of the country. Appreci
ating the value. of statesmen - in our national
crisis, the delegates selected by the people 10
the several nominating conventions, have risen
to the dignity and responsibility of their call
ing. They' haVe nominated thebest men to fill
the highest stations, and in' tiro States, at least,
have succeeded' in electing than. Gov. Sey
mour, of New York, and Gov. Parker, of New
Jersey, have fully come up to the requirements
of our times ; whilst the election of the Hon.
George W., Woodward for Governor of Pennsyl
vania, (which .is already a foregone conclu-
Oen ? ) will give to the friends of law and order,
Union and constitutional liberty, a preponder
ating influence on the administration of our
The selection of such men as Woodward,
Seymour and Parker, at this crisis in our, ea
uonal affairs, shows conclusively that public
virtue has not yet hopelessly departed from the
people—thit personal interest and party pre
dilections can still be made to yield to the
higher dictates of pure and lofty patriotism;
and that when the country is in danger, every
high-minded citizen is still, ready to sacrifice
his own predilections to the public good, by
putting the s! right men in the right places."
What we have sail of the nomination of the
Hon. George W. Woodward for Governor, ap
plies equally to the nomination for Supreme
Judge of the Hon. Walter H. ,Lowrie, whose
learning, firmness'and impartial jwatlee are the
theme of praise throughout the State. With
such candidates es these, the Democracy of
Pennsylvania will not only save the State but
The Philadelphia Sunday Mercury says :
The action of the Democratic Convention
at Harrisburg, on Wednesday last, has given
general satisfaction to its friends and disap-
pointed the hopes of its enemies. Rarely has
an assemblage of the kind,•even in ordinary
times, been marked by equal harmony of feel
ipg and calmness of - deliberation. The men
who composed it met together with a full SON%
of their responsibilities, and they addressed
themselves to the important work they were
appointed to do, with extraordinary purity and
directness of purpose. Before a body of dele
gates so constituted and disposed, selfish am- ,
bition stood abashed sad faction disarmed, All
felt that the public welfare at stake, and

gular excellence extorts acknowledgment even
from political opposition, and leaves the friends
of the ticket; but little to do for it except to
hold it forth in silent challenge of popular re
spect and acceptance. It is alike honorable to
the two distinguished candidates named and to
their party, that the nominations sought them
and not they the nominations ; that their pre
eminent merit, instinctively forbearing to in
vite recognition, found in the Convention the
intelligence to.pereeive and the virtue to pro
claim it. And as they-owe--nothing either to
personal solicitation or to the efforts of parti
cular friends, for the proud preference ,with
which they have been freely honored, so will
they enjoy the rare felicity of entering upon
the canvass uncommitted to any interest that
is less lofty and comprehensive than the prin
ciples of their party and the honor and welfare
of kennayliania. It is not often, we regret to
say, that gentlemen of such iiiefittifiebable
character are named for public office, or that
nominating bodies make choice of them with
the sigual unanimity and unprompted sponta
neousness which marked the selection of Mr.
Woodward and Mr. Lowrie. When, therefore,
men who are singularly and altogether de

Oita NEXT Germ/Nos.—lt is with a feeling
of proud satisfaction that we present to-day to
the Demooracy•of York County the name of the
good man •who has Men chosen by the, State
Convention as our candidate for Governor in
the approaching contest. It is *ell known
that our first choice for that high office was
Our fellow-citizen Major General William D.
Franklin. We felt, in common with Avusands
of our people, that the patriotism and talents
which had shone in many spheres of duty, end
maintained our fortunes upon many a. dark
battlefield, should not be suffered .to lie idle
because there vas no longer any work to be
found by the administration at - Washington fit
for clean hands and an unstained sword. We
conceived that' at the helm of his native State
General Franklin might find employment as
grave and honorable as aryfrom which Lincoln,
Ilalleek and Stanton could "exclude him—and
that he might, in the lapse of the neat three
years, do as much, to maintain the rights of the
people of Pennsylvania against the *tad of
Federal despotism, as he has done already to
keep their lives and homes secure from seces
sion bayonets. • • • I '
But since fortune has oast upon another those
weighty responsibilities which Franklin would
have borne 80 Well, they have 'fallen, we ars
prbud to say, into hands as able, true And in-
Corruptible as .hie. The name of George W.
Woodward is not a strange one to the people
of-Pennsylvania. While, still almost.a youth
he sat in, the convention that made our pres
ent State Constitution, and in that body, the
ablest that ever sat in Pennsylvania,' he was
the foremost man. There it was that batik
displayed the great talents, the various knowl
edge, the deep love of liberty within the bounds
of la*, and the steadfast devotion to the rights
of the people which we no* inseparably as4O
date with his name. The promise of his ' , teeth
has not •been broken. In every scene and sta
tion of his life,he has shown the same qualties
which made him a leader among old and famous
men when be was little more than a boy. For
many years he has bat upon the Stipreme bench
of this State; and long ago took his place among
the best judges of the whole country. The ao
tion of the Convention that nominated him last
week for Governor is the highest testimonial
that could conceived to the puritY and great
: nese of the man. •He was not et candidate be
fore that Convention. He had many times re
fused to be a candidate. Good and true men
were pressed by their friends for the nomina
tion, and came into the Convention with strong
-forces of instructed delegates.' But somehow
the finger of destiny pointed to Woodward. He
was too big to avoid, notice. He could not hide
M alo of f rom the representatives of the people
when they came to seek a statesman worthy to
hold up the hands and maintain the honor of
our old Commonwealth in this darkest hour of
her aeed—and so it came to pass that, without
any solicitation on his part, and in spite aide
refusals, the Democracy of - Pennsylvania, in
Convention assembled, called him with sponta
neous and irresistible voice to be their Gov
erner. That they will elect him by a majority
which will stagger the plunderers and oppress
ors of this land, is written in the bdok of Pate
as assuredly as the revolution of the seasons
or the coming of death.
And now the people may breathe freer and
hold up prouder heads. The man of our choice
did his best in the tiays of his youth to make
for us and our children a Constitution wise,
temperate and just. Be assured that he will
give his life, if need be, to maintain that Con
stitution intact and pure. The slavish senti

THE BATTLE AP WINCHESTER.
CAUSE OF TUE 'DIEAgTROUS DEFEAT
From the New Tcrk Herald.
* * * * The_foitifloatiOne At Win
chester are situated on two- JAM to the north
west of the town. consisting of " the main
work" nearest to Winchester,. and: !'the .star
fort" further north, both being connectettivith
each other by a road. The position 'is evi
dently 'strong, and ought to have been held;as
it certainlyi %amid hat% been if there had' been
. generaiship and pluck at• the head. "The at
tacking forge has been estimated at from 15,-
000 to la,ooo. Miiroy bad 7,000 in the battle,
and Could have concentrated 15,000 from' the
adjoining posts. The. -Confederates adVaneed
by two roads—the Front Royal and the Stras
burg—from the south, driving in the pickets
and carrying the outposts, at the same time
working their way gradually around by the
western side *of. the town', from which on tile
second day they assaulted the outer works of
the inaiafortification, rushing into the ditch
and -up the parapet, on which they, planted
their flag, carrying the works at the point of
the bayonet, and killing and capturing cons -
derable numbers. The , inner works were *till
in the possession ; of Milroy, also' the. titer . fort.
But a council of war was held after mightfall,
and wheh the battle had ceased, on Sunday.
It was debided• to take advantage of the dark
ness and evacuate 'the place during the bight
in silence, leaving behind althe cannon, am
munition and stores. Better , far to have re
treated before the battle or to have fought , . h.
Out. - Milroy bad not gone font miles when he
found himself confronted by an overwhelming
force, which the Confederates had) sent ahead.
Two regiments were captured wholesale, and .
the slaughter of those who cut their way
through was very considerable, while the cav
alry - pursued and. captured greet numbers.
The loss was terrible. Nothing was saved
except, what was carried upon the persons of
the troops. Not a soldier had a change of
clothing. The officers were compelled to leave
even their wires bellied thow in the hands of
the enemy. Three entire batteries of field
pieces and one battery of siege guns—in fact
the whole of the artillery of the command—
were lost, together with six thousand muskets,
and small arms Without stint, all the ammuni
dozy and commissary stores, two hundred and
eighty wagons and one thousand two hundred
horses. Unt.Str, seven thousand men only fron
one thousand six,hundred to two thousand had
turned up safe, leaving upwards of five thou
sand to be accounted for. The report in air
oulation 'that the train of Milroy, had escaped
turns out to be without foundation. Our cor
respondent, writing on the 29th, says nothing
whatever belonging to Milroy's command was
saved, and the mistake originated from the
fact that the trains from Jones' brigade, at
Martinsburg, and al.'lloytialtis' brigade. from
Berryville, escaped to . Rarrisburg. Thus the
defeat of Milroy was most thorough and disas
trous, and so much' was' he scared that he ap
pears never to have stopped till he got to Bal
Now, his troops fought admirably, and they
were well handled' by the iuboirdinate officers.
What, then, is the candh of a disaster as need
less and as humiliatingus that of Harper's
Ferry last year? Nothing but the want of
cool courage and capacity in the commanding
genetial. Unfortunately; Milroy is one of the
political:generals, appointed not for bie mili
tary abilities, but for hid violent Abolition
opinions. Bush men, being fanatical, have
not the brains to lead armies. In the second
battle of Bull Run, in which Pope commanded,
Milroy's frantic conduct Showed that he had
no presence of mind in battle. He says him-`
self, in his evidenee before a court of iuquirY
" I told him (ItI'Dowell) that_l Nina, not fight
