Probably one of the most important Con
vent ions of the Deroooraticparty ever held in
the State of l'ennsylvania was convened in
lianisburg yesterday. The Convention has
no nomination to make except that of a
candidate for Judge of the Supremo Conn
of the State. The special importance in
this nomination arises from the tendency of
the man of people during the peat few years
to drift in the course of oppression and un
oonstitutional law.. A candidate of the
highest integrity as an honest ir,an and
patriot, and of the best legal talent About
be selected. W. H. Jacoby has gone as
t•'enatcrial delegate from this Senatorial
District and Hon. Paul Leidy as Represen
tative Delegate from this Representative
District. We go to press too early to give
any account of the proceedings of the Con
vention. We will announce them nut
The Steven's Sherman MM.
In South Carolina, General Sickles has
widened the range of his duties in such a
manner as to show the full effect and mean
ing of the bill under which he holds power
and exerciser authority. In April he hunt
ed an order oreiturning all the civil laws
and processes of that State with reference
to the collection of debts. and instituted in
their place a series of orders dated from his
headquarters and sirned by himself as mili
tary commander. This was a long stride to
wards a full and entire destruction of all
civil authority in the division over which
this officer holds the sword. But it was not
enough. General Sickles is deteru.ined that
the people shall fiel the entire force of the
Stevens-Sherman bill, as its provisions are
understood by the Radicals, and hence he
interferes with matters which are properly
oovered by inunelpal antbority, and issues
orders with reference to the licensing of
inns end restaurants, and &trees regolating
the mauner of conducting the busies of
railroads, street ears,stakes, steamboats,
and other public conveyances. From all
these orders there is no appeal. They must
be obeyed. Disobedience will be followed
by a military arrest, a trial before a military
tribunal, conviction and sere punishment.
In this manner General Sickles aids the civ
il officers in carrying out the civil laws in his
The manner in which the direreot cow
menders placed over the unrepresented
States bare, interpreted the Stevens Sher
man bin, and their acts done by virtue of
authority conferred by that Radical measure,
show that the Democrats were right when
they denounced it as a deliberate and deter
mined attempt to destroy a republican form
of government in the South, and ereot in
its stead a military despotism.
Vi' General Sherman has issued a Gen
eral Order stating that the Union Pacif,s,
Railroad will be so well guarded in future
that no Indian till dare to interfere with it.
All passengers and freight must be forward
ed to the end of the track, and from there
will be gnarled by efficient escorts specially
provided by him for that vurpese.
A sufficient force of cavalry is already on
post. General Sherman i.e. sanguine that he
will clear the Platt Valley of Indians within
two weeks. A fight has occurred between
nine passengers and twenty Indians within
five miles of Moor's Fort. One passenger
was killed instantly, and General Davies'
son was mortally wounded.
Two Indians were killed and llyc severely
wounded. We of the passengers returned
to Omaba on the evening of the 9tb. Gov
ernor Steel, of Colorado, had a narrow es
cape, but subsequently reached Denver in
NI. The trial of' John Sarratt, it seems,
is to come uff at last. His counsel have
been insisting on going on with the case, for
several weeks, I. itt the "Government" was
never ready. The radical papers are doing
all they can to prejudice the minds of the
people against this young man ; and while we
cordially agree that all murder should be
punished, yet where We is at stake, com
mon decency if nothing more should stay
the tongue as well u the pen until a fair
trial be had. The Philadelphia lequirer of
Saturday last in a aonspictioue heading says
that, a conviction iv certainly in prospect.

exploaion 000urred at the steam Saw an&

A meeting was held at the house of Mr.
B. p. Lutz, in Bloomsburg, ou the evening
of Friday last, for the purpose of making
arrangements for hot Thig a gland Festival,
the proceeds to he devoted to the forward
ing of the interests of our magnificent
Literary Institute.
Miss H. Sharpless was appointed presi
dent, Mrs. S. A. Petrikin secretary, and
Miss A. D. Vebb treasurer. Committees
were appointed to eanvess Bloomsburg and
vicinity to solicit contributions; and that
the forthcoming festival should be one of
the finest ever seen in Bloomsburg was the
determination expressed by all present.
The Festival will bo held on the evenings of
the 20th and 21st of this month, at the
Institute Hall. We have good reason to be
proud of the Ittarnrrz. and every dollar
which may be added for the purpose of gen
eral embellishment, the procuring of scien
tific apparatus, maps, library, &c., also adds
to the honor of our people. Herculean
efforts bare been made, but our energies artt
by no means exhausted. Let this Festival
be one of the grandest over seen in
108.- Doctor John in his last paper says,
that one of the leaders in the "Fishing
Creek Confederacy" is writing a l awry of
the affair ; and he straightway goes to work
to call the attention of the historian to
sombrely else in order to shield himself
flous the punishment he deserves for the
business of bcunding on soldiers to oppress
and distress people who wore a thousand
times truer to the constitution and laws
than he and all who ever acted with him.
This in the old trick of the pilferer when
be cries "atop thief !" while he is carrying
off the stolen golds. But, we are glad that
there is to be a "history" in this case. Per
haps we will find out who made of them
relves spies, in the dark days of oppression,
and spied nothing but. whit was conjured up
by their own cowardly minds and diseased
imsginat'ons. We may find out who
really did 'send telegrams to Harrisburg ;'
and make suggestions to the officers in com
mand. Dr.. John intimates that Mr. Clark
did this . "When rogues fall cut honest
men get their dues." We really hope some
light may be thrown on the general subject
by this "history." The oppressed and
abused men, women, and children of Fish
ing creek most. ardently desire light,.
will be seen by the proceedings of the Coun
ty Convention, that that body etaz.da ad
journed until Saturday, Juno 2.2 d inst.
The cause of this adjournment arose from
the fact, that the Councils of the borough
had preciously passed an ordinance prohib
iting all public gatherings until further no
tice, in consequence of the prevalence of a
cootagiuus disease, which they aro fearful
may become more general by the meeting
of large bodies of persons together. The
kimeledge of the passage of thisordinance,
led many to suppose that, no Convention
would be held, consequently mutt of the
township were unrepreeented. What dele
gates were in attendance, met andorganized
at Savage's Hotel, and appointed Senatorial
and Representative conferees, to meet simi
lar conferees from the o'her Counties em
braced in the districts, and then adjourned
to meet on eaturday, June 22d, next, on
which occasion it is expected all the dele
gates will be present.—Dunviik htelligen-
Att. Pox.—There have been a few
cases of small pox in this place, and a num
ber of eases of varioloid. The first was Mr.
Poor, who, we believe, contracted the dis
ease in Scranton. He came home to his
residence in Danville, where he died. Since
his death, it has spread to some extent, but
we have heard of no other deaths. There
was quite a panic a few days ago, and in
obedience to publia PentimPnt, the Town
Council assembled And promulgated an or
dinance, which will bo found in the adver
tising columns of this paper. The excite-
ment is, however, apparently dying away.
Nearly everybody in town has been vaccin
ated, and we have no apprehension of any
great extension of the disease, nor do we
think there is the least danger to our country
friends, who visit the town. We arc aware
of many cock-and-bull stories that are in
circulation, and which may be ereflited by
some, but our readers can rely with entire
confidence on the statement we have made.

time, and 'v. , trave not heard of any other

The Valois Pacific Railroad
from Omaha, Nebraska.
What has been done, and tchen it will be
No great enterprise was ever begun abuut
which so little has been said and so much
has been chme. The public have a vague
idea that a railroad is being built from some
where in the Bust to somewhere in the far
ther West than a rail-track has over before
b e en laid ; but where it beqin3, or what
route it fellows, or where it is to end, we
venture to assert, not one in a thousand can
For a dozen years we have heard that a
great Pacific Railroad was to be built, and a
dozen names and a dozen companies, and a
dozen routes—from the southern boundary
of Texas to the northern boundary of Lake
Superior—have been urged upon Congress
as the greatest and hest means for uniting
the Atlantic and Pacific shore& Bubble
after bubble was blown, and each burst in
turn when touched by the sharp point of
practical experience.
The absolute necessity for a Pacific Rail
road to retain and bind mere closely togeth
er the eastern and western extremes of the
continent in ono great United and Pacific
country, the immense cost of' government
transportation to its frontier and Rocky
Mountain posts, and the even greater costa
of Indian wars, in a region that nothing but
a railroad could civilize, and nothing but,
civilization could pacit'y.—the great impor
tance of opening a road to the rich gold and
silver:nines of the Rocky and Sierra Nevada
Mountains, so that. the way to the resump
tion of specie payntents might be tirade
shorter and easier,—all these prudential
reasons finally pressed with such weight upon
Congress, that it determined that the road
should be made. There were, indeed, ninny
others: two thousand miles of additional
territory would be opened for settlement ;
vast bodies of land now valueless could he
made productive; the tide of business and
travel that now winds a tedious and danger
ous way along the borders of two ocean!,
would be lb:vexed ten-fold ; and how would
the fathas in the East strike hands with
their sons and daughters at the Golden Glee.
if they could only beborne on the wings of
the locomotive I
The imperative need of the work was ad
mitted, but it was too vast for individual
enterprise to attempt, No combination of
private capitalists was willing to risk a hun
dred million dollars in the construction of
2,003 miles of railroad through the wilder
ness. As the undertaking was strictly na
tional, so no power less than that of the
nation was sufficient to acomplish it; and
large as the cost necessarily would be, the
expenditure would save a much greater cost
to the country.* But the Csovernment did
not eater upon any new system of
internal improvements on its own account ;
and its only alternative was to grant its aid
in the most emeriti warmer to such respon
ailde individuals of suitable character and
energy as might be willing to risk a portion
of their private weans in the construction
of the road.
This charter was granted and perfected
by various acts of Congress, and the Com
pany comprises men of the highest reputa
tion for integrity, weeth, and business ex
perience. Among the oilmen are General
John A. Dix, President, Thomas C. Durant,
Vice• President, and lion. John J. Cisco,

....Surmr-parties were at, veto pushed
out in various directions a:lois the vend
nent to find and locate the best at-41We
line between the Missouri River and the
pacific Ocean. This was established at
Omaha. in Nebraska, on the east., and will
finally be at San Francisco, in California,
on the west—a distance of nearly 1,000
miles. The Chicago and North Western
Railroad is nap' completed from Chicago to
Omaha, a distance of -We miles; and several
other reeds are rapidly building to unite
with the Union Pacific at the sumo point;
co that its eastern connections will be nu
merous and complete.
The general line of the road from Omaha
is west up the Valley of the great Platte,
and theace.fteroas the piling a distance of
517 miles, to the Blue k Hills, or easterly
spur of the Rocky Mountains. Col. Sey

the grade is much more favorable than was
antimpated—the maximum to the Rooky
Mountains not exceeding :•,0 feet to the
mile. and Nut that point to the summit, or
divide of the eminent, it will not exceed
e 0 feet to the mile. From the Rooky
Mountains, the best. practicable route will
be taken to Great. Salt Lake City, and thence
by the Valley of the Humboldt River to the
eastern base of the Sierra Nevada Moun
tains. The Central Pacific Railroad is now
being rapidly built cast from Sterimento
Cal., and is already completed about 100
miles, and will connect with the Union
As we remarked before, there has been
very little talk, and a great deal of work.
Almost before the public were aware, it had
been begun. On the first of January, I SO,
the Union Pacific, Railroad was Jim:Alter! for
305 miles west from Omaha, and fully
equipped with Locomotives, Rolling Stock,
Repair Shops, Depots, Stations, &e.—and
the Company have on hand, Iron, Ties, and
other materials, sufficient to fiinish the road
to the Rocky mountains, or 517 miles from
Omaha, by the first of September, 1867.
It is expected that the whole line through
to California will be completed in 1870.

311.—Tus Latin GRANT.—WhiIe this is
certainly munificent, at the same time it is
most advantageous to the Government,
for without it, all its own lands would re
main almost worthlesa. It is a donation of
every alternate section for 20 miles on each
side of the road, or 12,600 acres per mile,
and amounts to 20_,032,000 acres, assuming
the distance from Omaha to the ' California
State line to be 1,565 miles. Mitch of this
land, especially in the Valley of the Great
Platte, is a rich alluvium, and is considered
equal to any in the world fir agricultural
purpozes. Hon. F. D. Mansfield. the
learned Commissioner of Statistics for the
State of Ohio, estimates that at least 9,400,-
000 acres will be available to the Company
within a moderate length of time, and that
it is far within bounds to estituato this entire
grant at 61,50 an acre, or $30,000,000.
The Illinois Central has realized more than
four times this slue for a similar grant.

-i-egnal to a cost of nearly $7 1 3,000 per mile,
which is believed to t.e a liberal estimate.
This does not take into the account the
value of the right of way and material s the
stock subscription paid in or to be paid in
the future, or the present discount at which
the bond; are offered, as they are expected
soon to be at par.
The interest on the Bonds is more than
provided for by the net earnings of the vari
ous sections of the road, as they are comple
ted. On the 305 miles on which the care
are now running from Omai, the re
ceipts for the first two weeks in May were
$113,000; and as the road is extended to
wards the great mining centres, the busi
ness in freight and passengers constantly
increases—and as there can be no competi
tion from rival roads, the company has full
power to charge remunerative prices.* .
It needs no argument to show that the
traffic of the only railroad concreting the
Atlantic and Pacific, and passing throl“h
the great mining region, must be-immense.
Although our annual product of the
prescious metals is now officially estimated
at CUOMO per annum, a vastly greater sum
wi!l be obtained as soon as the Onion Pacif
ic Raillead opens the way to the golden
regions of the Rocky Mountains. .ow, the
difficulties and cost of coat:mune:idea are so
great, that none but the very richest veins
eau be worked ; but with diem) transporta
tion, hundreds- of thousands of hardy miners
will successfully develop other mines, that,
with lets costly working, will be oven more
profitable than the average now in operation
and the business of this constantly increasing
mining interest must pass orer this road.
The record of t.ur shipping offices rhnw
that tint less than 50,000 passengers now
annually travel by sea between the Atlantic
ports and Sall Franciseo ; and there reckon
ed et ft lPi each iebent one half ofilt runni
er price) wotiid produce a revenue of 157,-
The overland travel is even greater. In
11, sin* year, family-sem thousontt trams,
comprising a number of emigrants and trav
elers departed from two points only on the
Missouri River on their westward journey.
If the truth of this statement was not
familiar to all frontier's-men, it might well
be questioned. But, estimating the over
land through travel at the same figures as
that by steamer, and we have $15,(0)0,000
as the minimum estimate on the saute num
ber of passengers. But the faeilities for
cheap and rapid transit furnished by railroad
always rattly it:strew-es the amount of travel
with the HMO population. The difference
between the numbers who would take an
ocean steamer or a
. prairie witgpn and a
modern palace car, with its luxurious state
rooms, where the traveler oats anti sleeps
almost as comnirtably as at home. may be as
great as the difference between the numbers
who were johodover the mountains in an
old fashioned stage-coach and those in an
Express train between any two great cities.
Then is it not safe to say tnat this through
travel will be at once doubled on the com
pletion of the road in 1870, and, with the
rapid lucre= of Pacific Coast population in
the next few yearn more than quadrupled ?
Is it at all extravagant to assert that the
through postrengrr ludne.qs during the first
year utter the first train of cars runs from
Omaha in Nebraska to Sacramento, will be
worth twenty-five million dollars? When
to this we add half as much more for its
wow pasenger business, and more than as
much more dm tiboth for its freight, express
and mails. etc., are there not the best rea
sons in the world for believing that the
Union Pacific Railroad will he the most
profitable as well as one of the grandest
works of modern times.
We hare made these calculations that the
public may have stnne brief data of tests
front which to fortu their estimate of the
value of the Union Pacific Railroad Compa
ny's First Menage Bonds. Besides, men
of the greatest railroad experience in the
country have shown their confidence in the
stock by liberal subscriptions, and this
stock must be subordinate to all other claims.
But there are stronger pool's of the security
and value of the Fast Mortgage than any
we have named:
. .
1. That for the safety of the country as
well as national economy the road is indis
2. That by an investment of about fifty
millions in a ,S'eeend Mortgage on die road,
the Government practically guarantees the
principal and interest on the first Mortgage.
The Company now offer a limited amout.
of its First Mortgage Bonds, bearing six
per cent. interest, payable senikinnnually
to coin, at ninety per cent. 'nue interest,
at the current rate of premium on gold is
equal to nine per cent. per annum on the
price for which they are now offered. The
Company expects to sell hut a small amount
at this rate, when the price will be raised,
and like all similar bonds they will finally
rise to a pretnium above their par value.—
The subscribers to this loan will not only
have the advantages of very liberal interest
and very safe security, but will also have the
satisfaction of having assisted in the con,
struetion of the greatest national work of
the country.
