QUEEN VICTORIA has been compelled
to call back Gladstone to re-construct
the English Cabinet. Mr. Gladstone
is the great Liberal leader, whose par
ty recently elected a majority to Par
liament His success overthrew Bea
consfield, a great favorite of the Queen
and who has ruled in Great Britain for
some years past, but whose foreign
policy was not popular with the peo
ple. This change is only worthy of
notice as showing the growing respect
in England to the popular sentiment.
As soon as it ascertained that the pol
icy of any ministry is not approved by
the people, that ministry resigns and
another is called to take its place. We
have ft different rule here; none resign,
or few at least leave office until their
term expires by law.
One of the unexpected political events
of last week, was the Republicans of
the State of Georgia virtually declaring
for Blaine as their choice for President.
Virginia, on the other hand, express
ed ft preference for Grant.
New York has declared for Tilden
as the Democratic candidate, and Ver
mont for General Hancock.
Sentenced at Last.
Kemble, Rumberger, Salter, Petroff
and Crawford, convicted of corrupt so
licitation of members of the last Legis
lature, were sentenced by Judge Pear
son, at Harrisburg last Monday, to one
year each in the penitentiary and each
SI,OOO fine. The sentence seems to
have taken the prisoners by surprise.
But the law has triumphed. Full de
tails will be given next week.
The canvass among the Pennsylva
nia Republican Committeemen is fur
ther announced by the New York Tri
bune, in which they gave a final sum
mary. Out of the 2,600 that journal
has received responses from 1,715. Of
these 1,334 pronounce for Blaine and
303 for Grant, with the remaining 78
for sundry other candidates. The
choice is marked between the two can
didates, Blaine and Grant, in which
the former has a following of more
than four times as many as the latter.
This canvass is certainly significant as
showing the real sentiment of the work
mg members of the party in the State,
and the sentiment of the constituency
they represent. It shows that the unit
rule which was railroaded through the
Harrisburg Convention was worse than
a farce, and instead of representing the
wishes of the Republicans of Pennsyl- .
vanlft, grossly misrepresents it. We I
contended at the time that the voifcfe of
the stalwart people was unquestionably
for Blaine. Tbe numerous County
Conventions and the decided stand
they have taken against that obnoxious
measure, confirms that opinion, and
this canvass of the State furnishes ad
ditional proof. It is no fanciful imagin
ation, it is not the wish father to the
thought, or the result of any species of
sophistry, but it is a fixed reality, a
solid, stubborn fact, that the old Key
stone State says in words that can not
be mistaken, that in their opinion the
man who above all others will receive
their cordial support is Senator James
G. Blaine. If, therefore, the 58 votes
are given as the people would have
them, they will be placed in the Blaine
column on every ballot. Anything
short of this will be a most palpable
perversion of their desires, and instead
of representing their honest opinions,
will be monopolized bv machine politi
cians to mean precisely the opposite of
the popularly expressed will. The fact
has been abundantly demonstrated that
the sentiment of the Pennsylvania Re
publicans is a unit for Blaine.— West
Chester Republican.
Butler County Again Speaks for
In obedience to the call, the Republi
can County Committee re-assemb!ed in
this place on last Saturday. The chief
object of its assembling was to name the
times for holding the primary election
and County Convention for this year.
This it will be seen, was done by fix
ing the 29th of May, being the last
Saturday of May, for the primary, and
the following Monday, May 31st, for
the meeting of the return Judges in
the County Convention.
But another object was also earn
estly desired by a large majority of tbe
Republicans of the county ; and that
was to improve the occasion of the
meeting of the committee and have
more definite information from the
gentleman who is to represent us in
the Chicago Convention for the nomi
nation of a Presidential candidate.
This desire arose from the fact, that since
the instructions given him by the
County Committee meeting that ap
pointed him on January 24 last, a
State Convention, on Feb. 4, had un
dertaken to give him different instruc
tions, and which set of instructions he
intended to obey had never publicly de
clared,but seemed determined to defy the
made on him for a public avowal of his
intentions. He gave many private ones,
but all who knew his past political his
tory were not content to let the matter
rest in that position. Being therefore
in doubt on the subject was the reason
for the Ccmmittec taking the action it
did last Saturday. It had the desired
effect, and Mr. Robinson was compelled
to come out and fully pledge himself to
vote for Blaine and thereby obey the
will of bis constituents. Being himself
a member of the committee he took ad
vantage of his position as such to in
flict a long letter on it, which may be
regarded and was no doubt intended
as a kind of "stump speech," or cam
paign document for his benefit between
this and the coming primary election.
The committee was disposed to let him
down as easily as possible, and with all
who know his tricks and ways his let
ter will be easily understood and fully
valued. The main object of the Repub
licans of the county, to have him pub
licly pledge himself to vote for and sup
port Blaine, hasbeenaccomplished. Had
they bad confidence in him no such
second instructions would have been
deemed necessary, and no honorable
delegate would have required such a
second expression of the people. But
the end has been accomplished by a
written public pledge, which cannot
well be avoided or shirked at the Na
tional Convention.
The third term isn't running well
in the Republican States. In Ohio
there has not been a Grant delegate
chosen to the State Convention, and
in Illinois twelve counties have chosen
delegates, 53 of whom are for Blaino
and 27 for Grant. This is the ex-Pres
ident's own State, too.
The New York Tribune '# canvass
of Pennsylvania has been completed.
Of 1,715 responses to tbe circular
which was sent to every Republican
county and township committeeman
in the State, 1,334 are for Senator
Blaine as first choice for President and
303 for Gen. Grant.
The Bedford county Press, pub
lished at tbe home of Chairman Cessna,
says "the Republicans of Bedford
county are clamoring for an opportu
nity to express their preference for
Mr. Blaine" It also states that the
Blaine men outnumber the Grant men,
in that county, more than ten to one.
Hon. C. O. Bowman, of Corry, who
has represented Tioga county and Erie
county in the Legislature, is an
nounced as a candidate for Legislature
in Erie county, and he declares in
favor of Grow for Senator. Mr. Bow
man is one of Erie county's ablest and
best Republicans, and we hope to see
him nominated and elected.
Says the Philadelphia Press of Sat
urday : "Senator Blaine's strength in
Pennsylvania keeps with its growth
in the county. The State papers this
week are as enthusiastic in their de
mand that the vote of Pennsylvania
shall be recorded for him at Chicago
as they "Were the first week after tbe
Harrisburg Convention."
Senator Hoar, who heads the Mas
sachusetts delegation to the Chicago
• Convention said, in a recent letter, ,
tSttU#* Cifcteeu: Hirtleet fj»., i&tacil 2S, ISSS.
that "at one time it seemed as though j
Gen. Grant must be nominated by a
wave of popular sentiment. But now,
he added, "that is impossible, and
more than that, I am persuaded that
his nomination in any manner w >uld
be a very grave political mistake."
GRANT-and-a-t bird-term carries not
a single New England State, it carried
New York by a very small majority
under machine rule, and Pennsylvania
by an abuse of power much resembling
both corruption and buldozing; but
beyond this, north of Mason and
Dixon's line, where are its trophies ?
Is the South to make the ticket for
Northern Republicans?" It requires
great effrontery to do this, seeing that
the North must elect.
The Chambersburg Repository,
which has been among the few Repub
lican papers of the State which have
defended the action of the managers of
the Harrisburg Convention, now
comes squarely over to the popular
side, declaring that "the State is really
overwhelmingly for Blaine and that
Grant's chances are waning day by
dav." There are at least a dozen
other Republican organs in this State
which have charged front in a similar
manner since the discussion of the ac
tion of the convention first began.
The third term movement needs a
new head. Senator Cameron does
very well for a "claim everything with
confidence" man, for he repeats every
day that Grant will be nominated on
the first ballot. But Grant has been
making pleasant peace-and-good-will
speeches all over the South, while his
friends in the North are running him
on the stronge-man-to-keep-the-South
in-order platform in the North.
Things are badly mixed. A council of
war should be called.— Crawford
Proceedings of County Committee.
In accordance with the call the Re
publican Count}' Committee assembled
in the Arbitration room of the Court
House on Saturday last, 24th inst.
The Chairman. Thomas Robinson,
stated that for personal reasons he would
not take any part in the proceedings
and withdrew, whereupon M. N.Greer,
of Buffalo township, was on motion
chosen Chairman of the meeting. A. L
Craig acting as secretary.
The Secretary then called over the
districts, the majority of which were
represented either by the members or
bv substitution of others, fifteen dis
tricts being unrepresented.
The Committee then proceeded to fix
the time for holding the Primary Elec
tion. After a full inter-charge of opin
ion, on motion of 11. J. Mitchell the
time for holding the Primary Election
was fixed on Saturday May, 2!»th; polls
to open at 1 o'clock, and close at 8
o'clock, P. M., the Return Judges to
meet in Convention in Butler on the
following Monday, May 31st, at 1
o'clock P. M.
A committee of three was appointed
to consider applications for new polling
districts, and reported back favorably
the following places:
St. Joe, Donegal township.
Parker's store. Parker township.
Forestville, Mercer township.
Bucna Vista. Fairvicw township.
Moore school house, Fairvicw town
Sheakley school house, Fairvicw town
Register City, Allegheny township.
I'ortersville borougl l .
The chairman then laid before the
committee a communication from
Thos. Robinson, Esq., delegate to the
National Convention; also a letter to
Mr. Robinson from a committee ap
pointed in March last by a meeting of
Republicans of Crawford county, to
gether with his reply to the same. (The
great length of these communications,
containing near twelve pages of paper,
preclude their publication here. We
may refer to them again; suffice it to
say tlmt he makes known that he, "in
tends to go to Chicago to assist in
Blaine's nomination as our standard
bearer in the coming contest.")
The following preamble and resolu
tions were then offered, discussed and
unanimously adopted:
AVHEKKAS, At the last meeting of thiscom
niitt-e, on January - _' i, we made r.n expression
of our opinion oil the Prpsidcnt'V fur James <i.
Ulaine, and instructed our delegates then ap

to secure his nomination, i" obedience to the
well known wishes of the Republicans of this
co'inty, therefore,
lirs.ilc.l. That we hereby renew our expres
sion of opinion that Hon .In. CJ. Bla:ne is the
favorite of the It-publican* of tin's county for
the Presidency.

district delegate"* t'> the Niitio-ial Convention,
distjrent from what the it-publican; of the d.s

Murder Extraordinary.
EMPORIUM, April 18.—Intense ex
citement prevails at Caledonia over a
murder committed there yesterday
morning by the noted forger ami out
law, Harry English. A posse ol police
went from St Marys to apprehend
English and arrived at his house near
Caledonia at 5 o'clock. Tbe consta
bles, Wrenth, Volmes and Justice
Burk, met English coming down stairs
when Wrenth ordered him to surren
der, but he returned up stairs and
locked himself in the room. The of
ficers then drew their pistols and de
clared their intention of taking him
dead or alive. As Constable Wrenth
came up to the room, English thrust
his rifle through the door and fired,
killing him instantly.
Constable Voli|ies then carried
Wrenth's body down stairs and as he
entered the yard English shot at him.
It is thought that Volmes will not
recover. English got away and
gained the woods during the excite
ment. While he wis running Dis

Tumbling Building,
NEW YORK, April 22.—An alarm
went through the city shortly before
10 o'clock last night that the roof of
the .Madison Square Garden had f.illeu,
and several persons had been killed or
injured by the accident. It was soon
learned that the entire wall on Madi
son avenue had fallen outward, cover
ing several persons on the sidewalk.
A part of the loof had also fallen in
burying beneath it a number of per
sons. The garden was crowded with
visitors of the grand fair in aid of
Hahneman Hospital. The fair had
a I read v been in progress several daj's,
and the building was filled with costly
works of art and with articles of vari
ous sorts, which hid been douated for
nale. The front part of the garden,
where the accident occurred, had lieen
greatly changed in appearance on ac
count of the fair. A .-pace more thin
fifty feet in width had been partitioned
oft'." and by means of a Poor had been
made into two stories, the lower oue
being used for offices, reception hall
and restaurant, and the upper story for
a dancing hall and art gallery.
' The cause of the accident is sup
posed to be the pressure of the floor of
the dancing hall and art gallery upon
the wall which supported it. Both
these rooms were filled with people at
an early hour. Suddenly it was no
ticed that the floor of the art gallery
was cracking, and Albert McKay,
manager of the fair, was summoned to
the place. He mounted the stairs
leading to the art gallery, and noticed
that the room was fiiled with ladies
and gentlemen. Detective Lilly, who
had been employed to watch valuable
pictures in the room, informed hitn
tiiat the walls were cracking in some
places, and that there was danger of
the floor giving away. McKay sent a
man to turn off the gas in that part of
the building and called out to persons
near him to leave the gallery as quickly
as possible. His manner of speaking
caused most of the persons in the room
to sti p out on a broad landing which
overlooks the main part of the garden.
The dancing hall on the same floor was
still full of people. Before they could
be warned of the approaching danger
a succession of loud reports was heard,
and the front wall suddenly fell out
into the street. A large part of the
roof which had been supported by the
wall, immediately fell in upon the
heads of the frightened dancers, bury
ing many of them out of sight. Screams
and groans were heard on every side,
and a panic followed. A moment after
the accident the floor of the dancing
room settled, and there was a general
stampede out upon the landing and
down the staircase to the main part of
the garden. Those who were out of
danger when the roof feel rushed for
ward toward the front of the building
and greatly impeded those who were
trying to escape outside the building.
Gladstone W.ns.
LONDON, April 23.—Earl Granville
and Lord Hartingion, oil their return
from Windsor Castle, drove to the
residence of Gladstone, and the three
are now in consultation. It is be
lieved Earl Granville conveyed the
Queen's request for an interview with
Gladstone. Gladstone went to Wind
sor Castle this evening, in obedience
to Royal command. He was loudly
cheered when he entered the train.
On the return of Gladstone to London
he was met by Lords Granville, Har
tington and Wolverton and W. P.
Adam. Mr. Adam said Gladstone
had undertaken to form a Cabinet.
Gladstone had some difficulty on his
return to London in making his way
through the enthusiastic crowd. The
Standard says it is confidently antici
pated that Granville will be Foreign
Minister. It is understood that j
Goschen will not enter the Ministry, !
and that Robert Lowe will receive a
peerage. There will be great difficulty
in offering Henry Faweett a seat in
the Cabinet, owing to his blindness.
LONDON, April —The Times, in !
a leading article this morning, says j
the Ministerial crisis is ended. Glad
stone hits accepted the duty of form- j
ing an administration, designating
himself as Chancellor i f the Exchequer j
and First Lord of the Treasury. Glad- 1

Affairs of the King's anticipated visit
and recommend an appropriation suffi

The Gun Was Loaded.
WHEELING, April 23.—Yesterday
evening Phillip M. Thomas, a furrnor
who resided near Barnesville, Ohio,
picked up his gun, and in order to as
certain if it was loaded put bis mouth
over the muzzle and his foot on the
hammer and blew into it. His foot
slipped, and the gun was discharged,
the ball entering the roof of his mouth
and passing out at the upper portion
of his bead, causing death in a short
time. Thomas was a member of the
Society of Friends, and was highly re
spected among them.
An iuntirs Tow.! Destroyed by
Storm and Fire.
ST. LOUIS, April lit—lt is reported
that nearly the whole town of Marsh
tield, Mo., was blown down by a ter
rific wind storm last evening and then
burned, resulting in frightful loss of
life. Tho telegraph wires are all down
ar.d nothing direct from the scene of
the calamity can be obtained at present.
From passengers whopassed through
Marshfield oil the St. Louis ft San
Francisco railroad, at 8 o'clock last
night, a few facts concerning the ter
rible disaster are gleaned. A man
who came to the depot at the edge of
the town while the train was there
reported that at 6.;'0 a hurricane struck
that place and leveled all that part of
the town laying west of Centre Square
flat to the ground. Tbe debris imme
diately took tire in several places, and
the flames could lie seen at some half
dozen points by the passengers an the
Forty dead bodies had been taken
out, and many more were supposed to
be buried in the ruins or burned up.
There were also many living still im
prisoned in the debris of the fallen
buildings. All the physicians of the
town were killed excepting two, and
there was great need of doctors to at
tend the wounded, of whom, it was
said, there were some two hundred.
A relief train with twenty physi
cians and nur.-es and full supplies left
Springfield, Missouri, this morning for
Marshfield, ami probably other trains
will arrive during "the day. The storm
was general in Southwestern Mis
souri, and other places probably suf
fered some damage, but as the tele
g aph wires are all prostrated, no ad
vices have been received. Violent hail
and rain accompanied the wind.
A telegram from Springfield via
Yinits and Kansas City to C. M.
Rogers, General Manager of the St.
Louis i Si San Francisco Railroad, says
a hurricane p ;ssed a few miles south
of Springfield about 7 o'clock last
night, doing an immense amount of
damage and killing a great number of
people. Fifty deaths are reported on
the James River, six miles south of
Springfield, and a great many persons
are missing.
The train dispatcher of Conway,
fourteen miles this side of Marshfield,
reports arriving there from Springfield
at 11 o'clock and says he found a ter
rible looking country from North Riv
er, seven miles west of Marshfield, to
the latter point. Trees three feet
through are torn entirely out of the
ground ; telegraph poles are twisted off
and everything wrecked. The town of
Marshfield was demolished. Brick as
well as frame buildings were torn. We
did not see more than half a dozen peo
ple as we came through that town.
The place seemed deserted. The .doc
tors and nurses who came on our train
from Springfield, about twenty In num
ber, went from the depot alone to hunt
up the people, there being no one at
the depot to receive them. We sent a
a relief train from Lebanon to Marsh
field at daylight this morning with
about fifty doctors, nurses and helpers
and full supplies of provisions, clothing
and medicine stores, also material for
repairing the telegraph line. The line
is dowu at different points between
Springfield and Conway, perhaps ten
miles altogether.
A special to the Post-Dispatch from
Lebanon says : The tornado which
caused such frightful havoc at Marsh
field last night, passed entirely through
Green and Webster counties. Follow
ing the course of the James river in a
north-easterly direction, it struck the
St. Louis <St San Francisoo Railroad in
four places and left it near Franks Sta
tion, 110 miles thi3 side of Marshfield.
The latter place presents a terrible ap
pearance, there not being more than a
dozen houses unharmed in the entire
town. The court house and many other
buildings took fire, and the scare and
effect were of a most dreadful charac
ter. At one house two children were
found dead, and another badly man
gled, but still alive. The parents
could not be found. In another case a
woman was lost entirely, and seems to
have been carried away bodily.
No details of the calamity have yet
been received The fore® of the wind
stripped the bark from the trees and
lifted others entirely out of the ground,
and telegraph poles and wires were car
ried hundreds of rods into the woods
and tied and knotted among the limbs
of the trees as though they were cot
ton strings.
At the latter place ali is confusion
and the people are in such an excited
state that it is almost impossible to get
any intelligible report. Many families
are homeless and have taken refuge in !
our depot and the empty cars standing
at the station. The front rooms of tbe
Court House are still standing, and
have been converted into a morgue.
The school building is used for a hos
pital. Up to 7p. M. they have a death
list of seventy-eight,
Murder of an Ed:tor.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 23. —Charles
I)e Young was shot and killed at 7:130
this evening by I. M. Kalloch, son of
I. S. Kalloch, in the Chronicle office.
I)e Young was one of the proprietors
of the Chronicle, and in August last, '
during the political canvass, shot and ,
dangerously wounded the elder Kal- j
loch, who was the candidate of the i
Kearneyites for Mayor of tho city J
This was tho culmination of a bitter
personal warfare between them. In de- 1
fending himself from aspersions upon j
his character by the Chronicle, Kal- j
loch, in addressing his adherents dur
ing the canvass, charged De Young
brothers (proprietors of the Chronicle)
with being the sons of a prostitute.
This was the immediate cause of the
shooting of Kalloch by Charles Do
Young. A great deal of excitement
followed the occurrence, and the city
narrowly escaped being the scene of a
bloody riot. The Kearneyites took up
the cause of I\alloch, and for some days
extra precautions became necessary to
rostrain them from resorting to violent
measures. Tho agitation subsided
with the recovery of Kalloch, but the
feud continued, and I)e Young was
stated to have threatened that he
would yet have revenge upon Kalloch.
Recently there appeared a pamphlet,
recounting doings of Kalloch, as a min
ister of the gospel, in New England
and elsewhere, placing him in a very
infamous light. The authorship or pub
lication of this was charged upon
De Young. Impressed with the truth
of this young Kalloch went to the
Chronicle office this evening, and
waiting his opportunity shot De Yoqng
as stated. The particulars of the affair
are not yet at hand. Charles De Young
was the oldest of the brothers, and the
leading spirit in the Chronicle estab
