IT is said there is likely to be a rup

Coi* Oscxa L. JACKSON, of Law

al aspirant to appear in the district of
which that county is a part. He is an
active Republican, an able lawyer, a
good speaker, and is popular.
THI President is likely to veto the
recent act of Congress restricting Chi
nese immigration to this country. The
principle contained in the act is con
trary'to all our traditions as well as to
the policy of our government since its
origin. That policy has been to invite
foreign immigration to our shores, and

matter by forbidding any, even for a

for the Republican nomination of Con

county Republicans strongly endorsed
him last year for the office of State
Treasurer, which he declined. He is
represented ai a competent and good

give very general satisfaction not only
in Crawford county but in the State.
MAJOR BROWN, of Pittsburgh, has
already forty-six delegates instructed

Court. It is confidently believed the
Republicans of every western county
will be solid for him. Our County

We have been enquired of as to when
the law was passed giving a State the
power to eloct a Congressman """at

swer, we would say, that the recent
act of Congress, making a new appor
tionment of members among the States
under the late census, provided that in
case the Legislature of any State was
not in session, or had failed to redis
trict the State if in ression, that In that
case the people of such State might
elect the additional member or mem
bers "at large," or by the whole State.
This is why Pennsylvania has one
snch to elect this fall, having received
an additional member and the Legis
lature not being in session to remodel
the State into new districts. The man
nominated for this position should be
one of State reputation, or at least of
high character and good ability. As
he for the time represents the whole
State he should have the ability to
speak for the whole State. This year
will likely be the only occasion such
an election will be had for some lime
to come.
TB« Expected Veto.
WASHINOTOK, April 9L —lt is stated
upon good authority by an intimate
friend of the President that the Chi
nese bill will be finally considered at
the special Cabinet meeting called for
to-morrow, and that bad the bill ex
cluded Chinese immigration for a
period of ten years instead of twenty
J ears, the President would not have
esitated to approve it; but since the
passage of the bill numerous communi
cations have been received from all
parts of tbe country urging him to
veto it, and he has been compelled to
iiroeeed cautiously in the mstter. It
B also stated that tbe President takes
tbe gronnd that tbe provsions of tbe
bill are to sweeping in their character,
and in' some instancos appear to con
flict with tbe treaty between tbe Uni
ted States and China. Tbe opinion is
entertained that tbe bill will be return
ed to Congress accompanied by a mes
sage explaining its objectionable fea
tures and suggesting certain alterations,
which idea seems to be agreeable to
certain members of Congress who bave
called upon tbe President since tbe
Cabinet meeting on Friday.
It is very positively stated that
Attorney General Brewster will read an
opinon at tbe Cabinet meeting to-mor
row declaring the Chinese bill in con
flict with our treaty obligations Fre-
Hnghuysen, it is understood, will also
present reasons against the signing of
tbe bill. Tbe. latter gentleman received
letters from Boston and New Yqrk im
porters urging him to oppose the bill
in tbe Cabinet.
The various rumors in circulation as
to the President's views upon the
Chinese bill are founded upon remarks
which he is said to have made to mem
bers of Congress, but nothing is defin
itely known as to his intentions.
The Post to-morrow will say :
'There is hardly any doubt tbe Presi
dent has made up bis mind to return
the Chinese bill to tbe Senate with
his disapproval.'

Editors as Postmaster*.
One of the earliest forms of the
abase of patronage was that of sub
sidizing the country press by appoint
ing the editor to office. Ihe natural
consequence was that the weekly news
paper was always very friendly to the
Administration. It was not the im
partial editor, but the office holder,
who spoke. Attention was called to
this evil more than forty years ago.
But there is a recent illustration of it
in a late letter from Ohio to the New
York Times:
Speaking of the impression produced,
by the nomination of Mr. Conkling, in
the Congressional District which was
so long represented by General Gar
field, the correspondent says;
"Sine out of ten Republicans were hurt and
indignant, and sucb expressions of favor as
have been heard have come either from the
politicians or from such newspaper* as have
political ends to serve. One Ohio editor has a
Postoffice, and approves the nomination, an
other has just had a brother-in-law appointed
to a large Postoffice, and he approves it; an
other has a son-in-law connected with an im
portant legation, and ftfl associate editor from
this paper in a consulship, au4 he approves it.
The only Republican newspaper i« "
Congressional District that has not denounced
it is edited by a man engaged at
Washington as clerk of a special committee.
It is in this way that patronage
may be used to bribe even tbe press
' into betrayal of its chief function by a
false expression of public opinion.
When an editor is appointed to an of
fice, it is inevitable that his comments
upon tbe general conduct of the ap
pointing power should cease to have
any value in the community which
knows his relation to it. It is another
stroDg argument for a careful reorder
ing of the whole system of sucb apr
pointments.— Harper 's Weekly.
This just presentation of the case
has a good illustration here at home.
The hope of getting the postoffice has
made the Meadville Republican entire
ly oblivious to tbe facts, editorially,
that Conkling was appointed Judge of
the Supreme Court, that Blaine de
livered a eulogy on Garfield, and that
. the Stalwarts have- opened fire upon
the dead President. A newspaper
which has no soul of its own, which
is no more an organ of public opinion
than a cow bell, is given a postoffice
because an aspiring politician "must
bave an organ of my own."— Mead
ville Journal, March 24.
To the above it should be added,
that where there are two papers of the
same party in the same town, it is
certainly giving an undue advantage
to appoint tbe editor of one to tbe post
office of the place, as thereby be can
exercise a surveillance and espionage
over tbe mail matter of tbe other.
Bribery In the New Jersey
For some time past some railroa d
companies have been trying to get
possession of the river front at Jersey
city, N. J. A bill was passed by both
Houses of the New Jersey Legislature,
some days ago, making the companies
a present of it, but this was vetoed by
the Governor. The State Senate pass
ed .the bill over the Governor's veto,
and during the discussion of the bill in
the House of Representatives, last
Wednesday, the following affidavit,
which explains itself, was read to the
! New .frr*ry, Mrrcer County, s*. —Joseph H.
Shinn, being duly sworn on his oath, saith that
i he is a member of the General Assembly of
thi* State from the county of Atlantic; that
during Monday night, 27th inst., he was called
, upon Dy a man well known to him, who said
that he had come to talk about Senate bill No.
' 167, and during the conversation he offered
I this deponent S3OO to vote tore Senate bil' No.
167 over the Governor's veto ; that this depo
-1 nent refused, and he was then asked to call at
. a certain room on Tuesday morning, 28th inst.,
at half-past eigh o'clock, bat did not do so, and
• ' later he was met by the same party, who com
plained because this deponent did not call at
the room as agreed upon ; that this deponent
, then stated that he would vote to sustaiu the
Governor , that in the meantime this deponent
' had called upon William McAdoo, from the
county of Hudson, and after informing him of
the facts above stated it was agreed that if any
i more offers of money were made to this depo-
I nent for his vote on Senate bill No. 167 that the
' money should be accepted and tbe whole affair
exposed in the House of Assembly, that while
this deponent was in his seat he was told that a
man wanted to see him, and went out into the
lobby, where he found the party first referred
to in this affidavit, who said that he had a
mathematical problem to submit to this depo
. nent, which was as follows :—Your vote is to
187 as SSOO is to your auswer. That this depo-
I nent stated that (louble the amount might make
him answer, at which the party who submitted
1 the problem stated that tbe other members whe
were voting for the bill only received S6OO, ex
cept those who were engaged as attorneys for
' the bill, but that he would see me again ; that
this deponent then went to his seat and remain
ad a short time when he was again called out
by a messenger, who informed him that a party
wanted to see him; that this depoi.ent then
went out and found the party there who had
submitted the mathematical problem, and he
snbaitted it again iu the following shape:—
As your vote is to 167 so is SI,OOO to vour
answer. That this deponent answered all
right, if tile money is left in my room at din
ner time. Jbat after this deponent returned to
his seat again ; he was told he was wanted
again, 'and on going oat was told that he
would get SSOO in his room at dinner time and
SSOO after the bill was passed ; that he would
get it all now but that the party who furnished
it had used more among others than he had ex
pected. Tbis deponent said 'All right,' and on
going to his rdom in his hotel after the adjourn
ment he sat down, when a man came there
with a package, saying he w.n instructed to
give it to Mr. Shinn. That this depanont then
opened the envelope and found that it contain
ed five SIOO bills, which this deponent still has
in bis possession. JOSEPH H. SHINN,

The reading of this created great ex
citement in tbe House, an investiga
tion was ordered, and the discussion of
of tbe bill postponed. It is not likely
that it will now pass the House and
become a law, over tbe veto.
The Iron-clad Oath In Force.
HARRISBURG, PA., April 3.—The act
of 1874, requiring municipal as well as
other officers to take the iron-clad oath,
and the Supreme Court never having
decided that tbe act is unconstitution
al, Attorney General Palmer will be
gin proceedings against certain officers
who shall fail to comply with the law.
It is held that the old oath will not
answer for city any more than for
county and State officers. This will
determine fairly the constitutionality
of the act. Those elected in February
will do well to be on the safe side, as
they will be too late should tbe ques
tion be decided against them.

Another silver cord is loosed ; anoth

voice which forafull round halfcentury
now has been making music in all our
hearts and homes has ceased its sing
ing and melted away into the everlast
ing silence. Longfellow is dead.

been a familiar presence, and his name

friend whom we have not seen much,
ajjd yet with whom, in one way or an
other, we had manned to keep up a
tender intimacy through all thv-
and to walk if) a sweet fellowship.

And though at times Impetuous with emotiou j
And anguish loug suppressed,
The swelling heart heaves like the ocean
That cannot be at rest,
We will be patient, and assuage the feeliug
We may uot wholly stay;
By silence sanctifying, uot concealing,
The grief that must have way.
Kven to the most casual reader of
his books it will be evident that Mr.
Longfellow kept his heart open and
his voice attuned to a living faith in
God. The atmosphere in which he
had bis home was sifted full of the
fine seeds of doubt; be was intimate
with men who cunningly and obsti
nately questioned everything ; schol
ars illustrious for their scientific attain
ments, and of world wide reputation
for ability and learning, were his
friends; he was up in all the latest
phases of German thinking, so far as
this thinking had effected German
literature; but no sophistries and
plausabilities of atheism, no shrugs
and groans of agnostic despair, no mys
teries of providence ever confused his
thought or dimmed his vision of the
Divine Father. To him humanity
was the suggestion and pledge of di
vinity behind. Trees, fields green
with verdure, sweet blossoms, moun
tains, streams, oceans, the insect's
wing, birds' songs, stars far away, and
smiles, and tears, and human voices
pitched to the accents of love, were all
eloquent of a living God.
From first to last the held his place
amongst those whom he so tenderly
addressed in his introduction to the
song of Hiawatha :
Who have faith in God and nature,
Who believe that in all ages
Every human heart is human,
That iu even savage bosoms
There are longings, yearnings, strivings,
For the good they comprehend not,
That the feeble bands and helpless,
Groping blindly in the darkness,
Touch God's right haud in that darkness.
And are lilted up and strengthened.
Another element revealed in a study
of Mr. Longfellow's writings which
brings him into accord with a lofty
Christain faith, and takes him right
along the line of Christian inspiration,
is the estimate he puts upon life. The
first note with which he captured the
ear of the world was bis
"Psalm of life." The deepest and
most stirring utterances in that early
production was the stanza:
Life is real, life is earnest,
And the grave it not its goal :
Dust thou art, to du«t returneat,
Was not spoken of the soul.
But the crowning service rendered
by Mr. Longfellow on his moral side
is the fine and ennobling purity in
which he walked and did his work.
Purity was the sentine' he put on
guard over his speech, and no tainted
utterance could escape detection and
arrest. It was an instinct with him
to be delicate and sweet; and both
his conception of character and his
conception of the poet's mission kept
him true to the best sentiments of his
nature. He never seems to have im
agined that his genius gave him license
to outrage decency and soil his fair
pages with the slime and filth of the
pit. This is much. With our Swin
burnes writing poems so shamelessly
eratic that publishers feel constraiued
to reca'l and suppress them ; with our
Walt Whitmans weltering in the slums
of a riotous imagination, and with our
Oscar Wildes using the sacred vehicle
of verse to parade before the world
their own prodigalities and vices—it
becomes an occasion of devout grati
tude to the lover of all good that the
foremost poet America has yet pro
duced, and whose reputation, wide as
it now is, is distined still to grow, has
issued no line which the purest soul
need blush to read. Devout and
loviDg, and severely chaste, he may
well be read by all who set themselves
forward in sweetness and nobility of
life.— Chicago Times.

On Sunday last Messrs. Scoville
and Reed, the counsel of Guiteau,
visited him in his prison. The follow
ing is an account of the visit and the
present position of the case:
Guiteau greeted Mr. Scoville in a
surly, careless manner, and as soon as
the conversation was begun he upbraid
ed him for not being more discreet in
talking about a commutation of the
sentence. "I want you to understand,
Scoville," said Guiteau, "that I don't
want my sentence commuted to
imprisonment for life. If Arthur can't
give me a

don't want any more interference in
this matter. When I want a pardon

at the same time prpspnt him with a
copy of the new e'dition of my book.
That will fix it.'
He then asked if anything definite
had been learned regarding the inten
tions of General Butler or Messrs.
Merrick and Cook, and when told it
was doubtful if either could attend to

much; that he would sponej: attend tq
fcis own affairs. Then, in a generous
spirit, he called Mr. Seoyille and plac
ing $1:25 in his hand, said : 'Here is a
of the money that I received from
the sale of my old clothes. You have
been pretty kind to me after all, and I
guess you need some money.'
Mr. Scoville and his client conversed
in a low tone for several minutes, and
when they concluded Guiteau smiling
ly announced that he had buried the
hatchet and didn't intend to quarrel
with his friea.d? sny more, 'Although,'

A Terrible Aralnuche.
The avalance that came down the
mountains at Genoa, Nevada, last
Thursday morning was of great extent.
Occurring as it did at 5:30 in the morn
ing, when most of the people where in
bed, the wonder is that more of the
residents did not lose their lives, The
first intimation had by the people was
a rumbling sound like tbat of an earth
quake. Bells were rung, and cries for
assistance passed along the streets by
those who happened to be up. The
slide came down the gorge immediate
ly south of of Genoa Canyon and swept
everything before it as far as Main
street. No obstacle checked this mov
ing mountain of snow until it spread
out and lost its force on the nearly
level piece of land on which Genoa is
built, fully a quarter of a mile from
the base of the mountain.
At this time it is impossible to esti
mate the loss of property. Everything
is chaos. Broken timber, splinters of
furniture, pine and fruit trees, hay
clothing, kitchen ware and bedding are
distributed through a body of snow
and ice from ten to fifty feet in depth
and several acres in extent. The
"Long" building, which stood nearest
the mountain, was occupied by Indians
driven from their wigwams by the
severity of the storni. As near as can
be ascertained, but seven were in the
house at the time of the catastrophe
No traces of the building can be recog
nized and as yet no search has been
made for its occupants.
Next came the residence and barn of
Miuerod Bowers, which was complete
ly crushed to pieces and carried into
the adjoining lot of D. W Virgin.
Minerod and his wife were found still
in their bud and almost on top of the
snow and debris, both dead. The resi
dences of I). W. Virgin, \V. I). Gray
and that of 11. Boerliu were on the
next street below Bowers'. Boerlin's
house was completely demolished.
The occupants were Mr. and Mrs.
Boerliu, their two children and Mr.
Chisholm and wife. All were buried
in the ruins.— Genoa Courier.

A Prayer Cure In Hutler
A dispateh from Harmony dated

are excited over the wondertul cure by
prayer of a six year old girl. "The
child, ever since it was a few months
old, has been unable to help itself
owing to an affection of the spine, and
had to lie fed by her parents. Learn

avail. The poor emaciated little suf

members of the family have been re
joicing over the child's improved con
dition and the little one is now able to
waik for the first time in its life. This
happy state of affair was brought about,
it is said, by prayer and the anointing
with oil, the Rev. Bratlebaugh, of the
Wiuubrenarlfin church being the gen
tlemen offieating. Just how long they
had to pray, whether it was crude, re
fined or sweet oil they used, we are
upable to state, but that the child is
able to walk we know to be a fact, as
we witnessed her first attempt, and it
was a grand success. It might do to
mention in connection with the above

cheerful, he dodges the question by an
indifferent answer. Its just like a
