The bill now before the House for in

A more distressing accident than that
which happened one day *ecently near New

seldom reported. Five children; of ages
ranging from four to fourteen, were walk

and they stepped aside to let it pass. Un
happily another train traveling in the oppo
site dir i ectionlashed up at the same time,
and the bewildered chidren, losing all pres
ence of mind, failed to get out of the way,
and were one and all killed. This sad
tragedy is di.epened by the fact that the
children - were all brothers and sisters, and
that the engine Which caused their death
was driven by a near relative. It, would
nett, be easy to imagine a more harrowing
M. Justice Bradley has decided that the
motion for a writ of habeas corpus must be
denied, as the • argument impugning the
authority of the court below is without
merit, and with that . decision Guiteiqs
last chance is gone. There is no hope for
hicri now. His counsel,• with astonishing
istence and no little ' ingenuitY, has
alienated in his client'S behalf all the re
sourcespf the law, and unless the President
intervenes with a pardon . , than . which noth
ing could lie:more unlucky, the sentence of
death under which Gniteau is lying, will
be'caryied into execution in ten days' time!,
So lan the prisoner has shown considerable
nerve; and has completely falsified the
prediction that he would break down.
Whether he has snfficient courage and
self control to mantain a bold front now
that all hope is gone, remains to be seen. ,
The New York Herald is given to fore
casting the weather, and it .is due to that
lively journal to say that its-predictions
being based on scientific observations and
facts generally prove true. It thinks that
the erplaitation of the. compoitively cool
weather 'ire have had this 'June seems
rather to Ibe that the amount of aqueous
vapor in the atmosphere is unusually large,
and this serves as 'a screen to intercept the
sum's heat rays, than that the sun has not

rainfalls , Windy reported abundantly
prove that the aerial currenti are abnor
mally charged with moistures' The country
south of • the , fortieth- parallel has been in
fact screened from the sun's radiation very
much as some of the West. Indian islands,
the vapor laden trade wind shields the son
from the fiercest rays. Even at Barl?adoes,

lute maximum heat 'given in the British
records. If this is the explanatiosi of car
col season it would seem the evaporation
in the tropical seas 14 ;been for some time
in ()Fames, would indicate , that the
sun's energy at ibis period is really greater
than it usually is. In this case we should
naturally expect for some time peke. to the
wanner solstice a backward, wet season, to
be followed by all the hot'weather in July
and August, if not sooner, that:the farmers
can desire for their crops. Judging by the
meteorological conditions of the past aim

The present Independent uprising in
Pennsylvania, is pot, ccinfined entirely
to the Republican paitY., Much of the
sane spirit is found in the Democratic
party. lt , arises out of the same cause
both, and naturally will seek the:
same cure. He who treats it With
total indifference and ridicule will learn
as time progresses and results begin to
be foreshadowed that, there is sufficient
of force in the movement to claim' the
thoughtful consideration of r the wisest
and most patriotic men of the ' party.
It, comes from the substratuni of
politics and is working its way upwards
and just beginning to be seen on the
surface. It is an uprising of the 1
ple who form the base and furnish the
votes that give success; to parties,l and
without which no party can succeed.
The personal popularity of General .
Beaver will greatly strengthen . the
Harrisburg ticket; and the enthusiasm
with which he is everywhere received'
encourages the hope that' the ticket will
succeed in spite of the 'lndependents,
and therefOre the leaders disconrage
and frown 'down all attempts at recon
lei iation. Inside of both camps
find the same defiant attitude, the same
hopeful presentation of their respective
prospects as distinct organizationa l : In

Some twenty yetis ego the ptiopie
of Pennsylvania came to the conclusion
that the democratic party had outlived
its usefulness. It had subsisted on
huckstering its power in the• State for
many years. It had buried beyond
reserrectioion over forty millions Of
money, wrung from the taxpayers in
of the collection of the same, whiob
amounted to the hypOtheeation of State
Avenues for thirty years in advance.
The farmersi i and 'artisans literally

the Democratic party in - Pennsylvania
has never elected -a Governor since.
But if it has never elected a Governor
since, it is because it - has done nothing
to indgce any seltrespecting citizen to
I -
go to its aid. During the score of
years of its:exile from power in Penn
zylvrinia iias hung upon the skids of
every new movement, like the body of
cemplollowers it has degenerated into,
always eager to profit by any conten
tion in the ranks of its subjugators,
always ready to trade an uncertain
general opportunity for a certain local
advantage. It' stood ready to derive
party advantage from the invasions of
the State by the 'relids.. - It hastened
to join the revolution inaugurated by
Andrew Johruion. It sought an alliance
with the fiat money party so long as
that motley following ':was worth the
taffy necessary to be expended. But
never in. all these Yeiini of exile has the
Democratic party prolvsed to make
a tinipaign on its nierits.; ' Since it
lacked the merits, hoW could it make a
campeign? l It is always eager , to base
its hopes upon the blunders of the
Republicans. But: what straits is a
party rediced vdien the best it can say
of itself is that hopes to succeed
through the Idundeew of its opponents?
Adversity proves of no advantage to
that party, teaches it nothing, and in
nothing purifies it. Just as it left the
places of power, it stands at the gates

Claims cranks without number drake

such as exists in the imagination of• a .
demented brain. The years come and
go, congress meets and expires, vet 'you
see these same faces about the Capitol
year after year, generally around with
a voluminous pile`of manuscript drawn
up,by themselVes in the form of an
argument in 'their own behalf that
would occupy the time of a member
. an
hour to read. One of, the most noted
of these crank's is Colonol Morris
Pinchovir, who imagines that he has
a claim against. the government 'of
$60,000,000; for urvices and stipples
during the war in the employ of the

I have endeavord to write a non
letter, but in closing, J can
not refrain from reproducing', a little
incident that occurred in the House a
few days since during the debate on
the legislative, executive,' and' judicial
appropriation bill, created much mer.
riment at the expense of the Democratic
side of the House. Mr. COXy of New
York; offered an amendment to the
bill, prohibiting the Republican Con
gressional Committee, and naming
personally each member thereof, from
receiving any money for political ritir
-poses from any employe 'of the govern
ment. Mr. Calkins, of.lndiana, popped
up, and proposed to add to. Mr. Cox's
amendment; the followirig words "nor
to buy- mules in Indiana." This un
expected shot into the Democratic
camp knocked the fulin'y member from
'New York, completely off his balance.
The House broke into 'a roar of laugh
ter, in which Cox himself joined, and
everybody appreciated and enjoyed the
force of the joke as a happy 'hit. • The.
force of the joke will be comprehended
by recalling the history 'of the last
Presidential campaign ib Indiana.
Prior to the State election that, year
Indiana was the centre off; operations
by both parties, in a mighty. effort tc
secure a triumph for the State ticket
in October, as whichever 'party carried
the State then would gain l a prestige
that would tend to success in , the
November election. Barnum, chair
man of the Democratic National Corn-
mittee, kept an agent in tndiana for
the ostensible purpose ig "buying
mules." , Each Democratic mule rep
. $7,000 for election poses.
Just on the eve of the election when
the,DemOcrats' were being pushed to
the last :' '
extremity in every quarter
of the Sf,rite, Barnum telegraphed his
agent in 'lndiana to ."buy seven more
mules," which uncovered, meant liter
ally, we have $70,000 more to e , put in
the contest to gain the election. The
significance of :Calkin's hit was so
palpable that everobody enjoyed it.

whose preSent term expires next March,
was last Week re-elected for another full
term of Eiji years, making the fifth con
secutive time that he has been chosen to
represent his State in the United States

swerving integrity, and staunch ,slevOtion
to the interests alike of his partyv and of
his State, have enabled him to make this
