la this Goantyy before the Governors
election, last fall, the leading Republican
were 'rampant in their hostilities to the re
peal of the tonnage lax. They were averse
to every thing looking towards a stupend
ous swindle.- They professed indignant ha
tred to taxes, and entertained no- ideas fhal
h people wld be made .pay the tonnage
UK of .ae Pennsylvania Railroad Company,
and thus allow said Company to fatten up
on the people's money.' This at least were
their pretentions. The whole thing was to
be made sure by voting for and electing
A. G. Curtis, which the poeple did, and
thereby sacrificed a much more honest,wor
Ihy and able man-a man in whom,there is no
deobt.the people would not have been de
ceived. The repeal of the tonnage tax was
cot desired by the .people. The Republi
can Legislature passed the bill. The roan
who was expected to veto it, singned it ; at
the great astonishment of many who gave
him their votes with the expectation ot see
ing him act differently, should the matter
come up. This is not the first Republican
swindle, and far from being the last.
! Gov. Cunia has paid a debt to Phila
delphia, for the insignificant vote he receiv
ed from that city, by the signing of the bill
abolishing their Spring Elections ; thus put
ting off their election for Municipal officers
until the October election, and retaining
Republicans m power til! then at all events.
A large majority of the Philadelphia mem
tiers opposed the bill in the strongest man
ner; b-utinejhe of their opposition, the
thing was v be done, and Andy 6tood ready
to sigo the bill. Fear of defeat at the Spring
Ejection is assigned as the reason for the
Republicans abolishing this election.
- - ttt Sostiern Fortx-
The Southern Forts that now remain to
be maintained are but few. The forts in
Texts, we believe, are now all in possess
ion of the State troops while those f Lou
isiana and other seceding States, with a few
exceptions, are also in possession of the
authorties of those States. ; These still re
maining in possession of the United Slates
are very important to the Government i
etralonii: point of view, and equally impor
tant to the safety of the Southern Confeder
acy. They are as follows : Fort Sumpter,
Fort Pickens, and the fortresses en the Dry
Tortuzas at Key West. The first of these
the Government of the United States has
resolved to abandon as untenable. Whether
this is the true reason or not, remains to be
een. Fort Pickens is a most important
fort, in the went of a - hostile eoliisien, to
both the seceding States and the Govern
ment. It is situated on a small island, at
the mouth o.! the harbor or bay of Pensaco
la, and as completely commands its en
trance as d!S fort Sumpter that of Charles
ton. The suze, equipment and insulated
position of tie works render them a mo st
formidable defence, and one which it must
require immense labor, money and loss of
life to capttre. U is, however, subject
somewhat iq the same difficulty as to Fort
Sumpter Fort McRea, which is now in
the hands of the secessionists, is still fur
ther out seaward, and has pretty effectual
and prior command of the harbor. It is
asserted, also, that the secessionists are
forming additional breastworks and batter
ies to more effectually command the har
bor. Should the attempt to control the har
bor be successful, and all further reinforce
ment or provisioning of Fort PJckens be
thus cot off, the fall ot the fort -would only
be a matter of time. From present appear
ances, Lisut. Slemmer, who now commands
the fort, will be able to defy any force which
is likely io be sent against him.

The Administration and Fort Sumpter.
The policy of the Administration in ref
erence to the removal of the troops from
Fort Sumpter is not yet promulgated in any
official-shapethough there appears to be
a general understanding -that the ' evacua
tion will be accomplished Outing the pres
ent week. The final formalities, it is be
lieve!, were arranged at1 the Cabinet meet
ing on Saturday. With reference to reeeni
movemeRtS'O ('naval vessels it is -seml-offi-cially-statett
that the 'United "States Jhips
Supply, Mohawk end Crusader, iwhich
leftUhe'New York Navy Yard on Thursday,
are destined to join the squadron which
has been re-called from the Gulf of Mexico
to oar seaboard. The -revenue vessels ad
ded to the fleet are intended to augment-it
to &rrespectabIe-coaetguartl as already sta
ted. The chartered vessels Star of the West
Empire City, Philadelphia, and Coalzocolos,
are-employed for the poipose openly avow
ed by theGovernment, namely, that dt con
veying Uuited States troops from Texas,
and between-other posts. The detachment
of troeps-eeut from New York is for Florida.
The Mohawk and Crusalier will report to
Hhe Commander in-Chief of the station, in
the neighborhood of Pensacola. The Phil
adelphia wi'l probably be used, if Sumpter
is evacuated, to bring the garrison of that
fort to Old Point Comfort, Va. The various
other-surmises as to the destination of the
hipfi named are chimerical.
A New York paper of Saturday evening
gave currency to a report that a collision
had occurred at Pensacola. The report has
not been in nn-y way confirmed, and is most
probab'lj one of the "startling rumors" of
which Washington is at this time so pro
ductive. The first case of real difficulty growing
out of the absence of United States Collec
tors at some of the Sonthern points, occur
red at New York on Thursday, and result
ed in the seizure of the schooner Restless
at that port from Havana. Tie Collector at
Mobile refusing, as a United States officer
to exchange a coasting license for a Teg"rs

Havanna for a cargo, the Captain "protest

bis document, and he then proceeded on
his voyage. At New York Collector Schell
seized the vessel for violation of the laws.
The facts of the ca have been sent to the
Secretary of the Treasury, who, it is believ
ed will remit the penalty incurred.

Terribtt Scene It China.
The Canton Press gives the particulars of
a frightful execution by wholesale of Can
ton river pirates by rfie Cantonese authori
ties." The pirates with their lorchas were
first enticed out of the river, and then a
military and naval force was stationed ten
or twelve miles below Canton to prevent
their ascending the river above that point.
The pirates attempted to get past this sta
tion in a body, but were only partially suc
cessful, while the Chinese Commodore pur
sued and destroyed those who did. The
Press says :
"There sailed past his guard post three,
some say ten, Canton lorchas and tyrrroons;
others hanging on outside in case this de
tachment succeded. They were attacked
by the mandarian force ; three were burnt,
two ran op to take refuge at the Pagoda
anchorage, and the rest made out to sea as
fdst as they could. The remainder of that
day was occuiped in pursuing and captur
ing the fugitive pirates who had escaped on
shore. Next morning, the 20th, the man
darian armed boats were in pursuit of the
two boats that had escaped up the river.
They came up with them about noon, lying
in shore at the Pagoda. There they were
attacked ; their crews dashed into the
6iream to swim ashore, and while floating
on the water some forty or fifty were spear
ed and shot; a fine sight to be seen for
foreign seamen and residents!
"Early on the morning of the 21st it was
evident, from the packed throngs on the
great bridge, and the hubbub around, that
something strange and novel and exciting
haJoccured. About nine o'clock, some of
the mandarian war boats had come up with
two prizes and two hundred captured pi
rates. The latter they commenced to land
each man under the guard of at least four
marines, bearing drawn swords, spears,
matchlocks or sporting gay flags The
captives were in a terrible plight, stripped
and naked, hands lied with awful tightness
behind their backs, and feet scarcely able
to walk, while ihey were driven along with
the most barbarous savageiiess. Eight or
ten had been beheaded on their way up
the river, and two or three just as they were
shoved on shore, for showing fight and
their reluctance to move on. The heads ot
these unfortunates were slung on poles, and
swung before the eyes of the remainder, as
a token of what awaited them very shortly.
When all had been lauded they were
marched across the bridge to the Northern
and on the way, as if to gratify the
public gaze, the heads of four were delib
erately chopped off, and their corpses flung
into the river below."
Thirty of the captives were executed at
the Northein gate, when the remaining 170
were carried around io the South gate
The work was short ; one after the other
the whole lot were beheaded, and in half
an hour the judges, troops, and staring mob
were dispersed. The executioners.of whom
there were several, vied to see who could
do the largest amount of work ; one suc

Post Office Appointment. H. H. Fry

It is eminently fit and appropriate that a
party which wars for negroes should war
against women. Here is a widow lady,
who for years has been the Postmistress at
Columbia, turned out of office for no fault
of hers, from no objection to her politics
for she, of course, cannot be a partisan
but in mere wantonness, ot to reward some
rapacious and hungry officer-seeker. Is it
and dignified in the Administration to carry
its doctrines of proscription to such lengths'?

gentleman who leaves behind him more
-sincere friends, or nidre general regret,
than the Hon. Thomas B. Florence. 'For
ten" years he has-represented the most ne
cessitous constituency in American, with a
laborious devotion which has defied llefsat.
Perhaps fewmenever sat so long -in 'Con

people at home, end such good feeling of
bis fellow members. Always obliging, al

universally brilliant corps , of writers. It
fitly devotes itself to 'literature science and

of letters. In devoting his entire' energies
to the work, Col. Florence guarantees for
it a sure and steady prosperity, which is not
less due himself as a man than it is a book.

Office Seeking it Wasaingtoi.
The ex'ent to which office seeking is car
ried by the Republican patriots, has not its
parallel in all oor past history. It is absolutely
frightful and shows that politics is as much
a i rad e as any of the handicrafts as much
a -pursuit as any of the professions.
A Republican writes from Washington:
"Applications for office continue to pour
in. Already at the Treasury the clerks
have noted and filed away for future refer
ence, thirty two bushels of well endorsed
documents. At the Post Office Department
fifteen thousand applications fbr office have
already been filed. The War Department
employs three clerks to note and file away
the applications. The worst disappointed
men who come to Washington are the little
town and ward politicians, who, having
"stomped" their own localities, fancy the
whole world, including Mr. Lincoln, must
be fully satisfied that but for each of these
the Republican party would have bten de

the medical world the answer is of vital
importance to the community at large. The
numerous cases of prevention, resulting
from the timely use of Holloway's Pills and
Ointment, together with the actual cures of
many in an advanced stage would seem to
indicate a positive reply to the above querj .
It is a welt known fact that the Ointment
will arrest inflammation in its m06t rapid
progress so that if well rubbed into the
chet and back it will penetrate to the very
lungs and prevent the spreading of the dis

distressing, for whe're can a remedy be
found? There is one : drink but little
wine, beer, or splrirs,or far better, none;
lake no coffee, weak tea beins preferable;
get all the fresh air you can ; lake three or
four Pills every night; eat pleuiy of solids,
avoiding'the ose of slops ; and if these gold,
en rules ate followed, yon will b happy
in mind and strong lb body, and forgetyoa
have any nerves.
MOTHERS AYfD DAUGHTERS.
If there is one thing more than another
for which these Pills are so iamoos it is
their purifying properties, cpecially their
power of cleansing the blood from all im.

In all diseases affecting these orzans,
