THE burning of Hannastown, West
moreland county, this State, by the
Indians, and the cruel massacre of the
men, women and children in the fort
then there, was one of the most horri
ble events of old Indian time warfare.
It took place on the 13tb of July 1782,
one hundred years ago last Thursday.
The people of Westmoreland county
had memorial services on the 13th inst.,
to honor the memory of the brave
defenders of the old town and
their noble deeds aud sufferings.
The memorial services were quite im
pressive. In youth are used to hear
old citizens, who came here from
Westmoreland county, speak of the
Hannastown massacre, but we cannot
now recall ona such living. They
have all passed away. It was proper
for the present generation of West
moreland county to perpetuate the j
memory of those slaughtered there one
hundred years ago. i
The Independent Republican candi
dates of Pennsylvania have submitted
a proposition to General Beaver and
his associates on the Stalwart ticket
which will fully test the desire of Mr.
Cameron's followers for harmony in the
party. The proposition is that all the
present nominees shall withdraw and
not be candidates for renomination,
that a new convention shall then be
called as proposed by the Cameron
State Committee, and an entirely
new ticket be placed in the field. This
would remove all present antagonisms
and assure a united party and the
choice of a candidate that would defeat
Mr. Patt'son. No other course seems
likely to produce the same result. If
the Stalwart, candidates care more for
the success of the party and good
! government than they do for personal
ends they will not delay to accept
this proposition. Unfortunately, how
ever, they are under Mr. Cameron's
domination. Colonel McMichael, one
of the Independent candidates, does
not unite with his associates on the
ticket in this proposition, but he prom
ises to withdraw if a satisfactory
ticket is nominated.— Tribune.
One of the false claims set up for the
"Stalwarts" is that they always sup
port the ticket. There is not a bit of
truth in the claim. Here in Crawford
county those who avow themselves
"Stalwarts" have done their full share,
and more, of the bolting, and it is
generally so. Down in Butler county
now, the Eagle, the Stalwart organ,
is preparing to bolt the nomination of
Braham for Assembly, because he
voted for Grow and refused to obey
Cameron's orders and support Oliver.
The Eagle of a recent date said:
"It is on this principle that Mr.
Braham claims the support of the
whole party. If he shall receive it
he will be returned to the next legisla
ture and a premium placed upon dis
organization and open defiance to the
majority principle. Is it not so ?
How can Republicans close their eyes
to the facts ?"
If this is not i» plain invitation for
Republicans to bolt Braham because
be refused to join Cameron in defeat
ing the choice of the party for Senator,
we know nothing about it. The
same game was tried in Venango
county the last time Mr. Mapes was a
candidate for the Assembly. He was
cut right and left by Cameron's hench
men. Our word for it they intend to
do the same thing this year wherever
they think it will pay.— Crawford
Journal,-July 14.
IT looks as if somebody had bunglea
at Alexandria, and it apparently is not
Arabi Pacha. He is on his way to
Cairo with his army, while Admiral
Seymour is in control of the disman
tled fortifications, the burning city and
the bodies of the victims of the massa
cre. While the commander of the
fleet was awaiting with dignity a for
mal surrender lrom Arabi, the Egypt
ian was leaving the city, already in
(lames, and the Europeans who bad
remained were being put to death.
The flag of truce was flying all this
time, and this seems to have deceived
the English. It is hard to understand
why troops were not there to cut off
all chance of a retreat as soon as the
firing from the forts ceased. There
certainly should have been forces
ready to land instantly to finish the
work begun by the bombardment, to
take possession of the railroad and the
city, and to make the lives and property
of the inhabitants safe. If men could
not be spared from the vessels, then,
apparently, the bombardment was pre
mature; or possibly assistance which
the Admiral expected, did not arrive.
At least no advantage seems to have
been gained by the Euglish. The
Status quo is no more nearly re-estab
lished than before the bombardment and
the Khedive's authority has not been re
stored. Arabi Pacha can make as
much trouble now as ever, and there is
pretty serious business to be done be
fore be can be captured or suppressed.
Ia this country but little attention
waa given to the trouble in Egypt,
which has now resulted in war. The
old and historic city of Alexandria,
founded by Alexander the Great, has
been bombarded by an English fleet,
and is now in rains. The sad part of
the matter is that hundreds of Chris
tians living there, or doing business in
the city, have been killed. For this
terrible fate the British Government
is alone responsible. Without any
formal declaration of war by the Gov
ernment, a British Admiral commenced
firing upon the fortifications of Alex
andria. He could not but have known
that the result of that would be to en
danger the lives of all of his own coun
trymen, language and religion, and
Arabi Bey, the military leader of the
people, has taken fearful and terrible
vengeance by the slaughter of all for
eigners and Christians found in the
The trouble between the Egyptians
and English seems to have arisen out
of financial questions. The financial
affairs of Egypt for some time past
seem to have beeu under the control of
the great powers of Europe, through
an arrangement with the Sultan of
Turkey, who claims sovereignty over
Egypt, but who has really been unable
to exercise any authority since the rise
of Arabi, who, in this case, we might
term Colonel, or General Arabi. The
chief officer of Turkey in Egypt, called
the Khedive, had to adopt a policy un
der the directions of General Arabi.
This policy was prejudicial to the for
eign holders of Egyptian bonds, partic
ularly the English bond holders. Out
of this has grown the present situation.
What the result may be none can tell,
but a general Europeau war may be at
hand. Turkey refuses to stand by
England ; and so does France. On the
part of the British it looks like the old
game for getting more possessions:
First, get a heathen country iu debt to
them and then for payment, make war
and seize their territory. They will
have to follow up Arabi now, who will
give battle by land. Bnt the end, after a
great loss of life, will probably be a
new government over Egypt, under
British direction.
Putt** : Unller, 13. 1882.
Moscow dispatches report the deotb i
of General Skobeleff, the famous llus- 1
gian General. Heart d.sease was the ,
cause cf bis demise. Geueral Skobe- |
leff ent.-rcd the army in 1862. He I
was uot only a born soldier but a des- ,
cendaut of soldiers. He was a hero I
in the estimation of those under his \
command. His bravery amounted al- i
most to recklessness. One peculiarity
of his conduct was his habit of wear
ing white when he went into battle
and always dressed in his cleanest
clothing, perfumed like a lady, and
weariug a diamond-hilted sword. He
was always in the front of the battle
and, although a dandy in appearance,
is represented as brave and daring in
action. He was one of the best read
men in Europe, taking great pleasure
in books. He was the idol of the
Russian anny. __
In another place will be seen the
progress thus far made towards having
but one Republican State ticket. At
the meeting last week of the State
Committee representing the Regulars,
so called, lour propositions were made
to the Independents. One of these
embraced tho proposition for a new
Stale Convention, but unlimited as to
who all should bo candidates before it.
The Chairman of tho Independent
wing replied to this by saying he
would call his Committee together
which he has done, for a meeting next
week. But., in the meantime, four of
the Independent candidates, beaded by
Col. Stewart, candidate for Governor,
addressed a communication to Gen.
Beaver and candidates of the Regular
wing, saying that they would accept
the proposition for a new Convention,
with one amendment, and that to be,
that both of the present tickets be
withdrawn and none of the names on
either to be submitted for renomina
tion during this campaign. For reply
to this the Chairman of the Regulars
has called together his advisory Com
mittee of ten, provided for at their meet
ing last week. So a week or two
more will be necessary before it can be
known whether we are to have union
or not on a State ticket.
But it is now narrowed down to a
single point, and that is one the can
didates tkemselves can settle. Will
they do it ? This is a question that
concerns the whole Republican party of
the State. Its interest is greater than
that of any Jive or any ten men of the
party. By the absolute withdrawal of
both old tickets, and the substitution
of a new one by a new Convention,
every ground and every cause of com
plaint will be take.i out of the party.
The feelings of a personal nature will
be removed. All personal bitterness
of every k>nd will be removed. The
question is not which faction is the
stronger; or whether this candidate
could poll more votes than that can
didate. We cannot save the paity by
saving one faction of it, but we can
save it by saving both. We do not
like the idea of limiting the right of
any and all to be candidates. But this
is an emergency in the party, and its
interest is superior to that of any man
or set of men, be they five or ten.
Would it not then be an act of magnan
imity on the part of all the present
candidates to say, we step asids in the
interest of harmony, to be secured by
a new ticket ? A majority of one set
of candidates have proposed this. Can
the other side afford to reject it? If
they do, will it not be saying they
want to save themselves aod not the
party ? Suppose either of them to suc
ceed in being nominated at the new
Convention, will they not be burdened
with the old animosities, borne down
and embarrassed with Cameronism or
anti-Cameronism? Entire, perfect
union and harmony would seem to be
only attainable by the absolute with
drawal of all present candidates. The
people would then be free to act and
choose, and do the best for the party
and certain success would follow in

Death of Mrs, Lincoln.
SPRINGFIELD, 111.,, July 10. —Mrs.
Lincoln, widow of the late President
Lincoln, died in this city at 8:15 to
night. She had been ill for a long
time. A tew days ago she grew worse.
On Saturday evening she suffered a
stroke of paralysis and from that time
lay in a comatose state till she died.
Robert Lincoln left Washington to
night and will be here Tuesday morn
ing. The funeral announcement will
be made later.
Mary Lincoln was the daughter of
Hon. Robert S. Todd, of Lexington,
Mr?. Lincoln had keen taste for poli
tics, and she was a satirical writer of
great power. Her taleuts found ex
pression in the local pipers, and one of
her articles involved her husband in a
duel with Mr Shields, then Stat.}
Auditor of Illinois, but by thejintcrvec
tion of friends a hostile meeting was
averted! Throughout his career she
was an able minister to the honorable
ambition of her great husband, and
cheerfully bore her share of the bur
dens of ttbe Presidency when that
honor came to him. During bis first
administration her favorite son Tad
died, and the shock was one of which
she never fully recovered. A.ter the
President was assassinated the strain
became greater than she could bear,
and her mind finally gave way com
pletely. She recovered from the first
lapse of reason only to relapse, and for
some time she has been a confirmed
invalid. In her fatal illness, however,
she was in full possession of her senses
up to the hour when the fatal stroke
of paralysis intervened.
\ev Convention Prospects.
The members of the State Com
mittee, representing what is now term
ed the Regular or Stalwart branch of
the Republican party, met in Philadel
phia on last Wednesday, 12th inst.
It seems the candidates of that wing,
as well as the candidates of the wing
termed Independents, were also present
in that city, whether by invitation or
not we are not informed. The object
was to secure harmony in the party
and the having but one State ticket, if
possible. We cannot give all that
took place, but the following will give
our readers and the Republicans of
this county an idea of the present situ
ation in Slate politics.
The following was sent to that Com
mittee by the candidates of the Regu
lar wing, so called, addressed to Hon.
Thomas Y. Cooper, its Chairman:
' Your Committee has been charged
by the representatives of the Republi
can party of Pennsylvania, in conven
tion assembled on tbe 21stof June ult.,
with the duty of using all honorable
means to secure the united and har
monious action of the party.
This duty should in our opinion be
carefully considered and faithfully dis
charged. We have no desire to limit
your Committee in any way in the
discharge of that duty by setting up
any fancied claim of vested rights aris
ing out of the nominations which have
been severally conferred upon us by
the Convention which assembled at
Harrisburg on the 10th of May last,
and at its reassembling in the same
place on the 27th ult., hereinbefore re
ferred to.
We deem the harmony and Buccess
of the Republican party of infinitly
greater momc it than the individual
perferment of any of us. The party
cannot afford even to appear to be
wrong in the estimation of any consid
erable portion of its honest followers
and faithful supporters. If our nomin
ation did not at the time it was made
fully and fairly represent the wishes of
the majority of the Republican party
in Pennsylvania, or if any of us have
since that nomination ceased to repre
sent the popular will, we are not only
desirous, but anxions, that the proper
remedy be applied by your Committee
under the authority vested in it by the
We therefore hereby severally
authorize your Committee to submit
our caudidncy and the candidacy of
I each of us such popular tests as will in
the judgment of its members clearly
indicate the popular will in the premises
and secure the co-operation of all who
really desire Republican harmony and
success, whether by primary elections,
a new Convention, or otherwise, pledg
ing our hearty co-operatiou iu carrying
out to practical results any plan which
may be adopted in its wisdom and to
the unqualified support of any candid
ates who maybe chosen to represent
the Republican party. We have the
honor to be, with great respect, your
Obedient servants,
This was followed by the passage in
the Committee of the following four
resolutions or propositions:
First. The ticket headed by James
A. Beaver and John Stewart respec
tively, to be submitted to a vote of the
Republican electors of the State at
primaries as hereinafter provided for.
Second. The selection of candidates
to be voted for by the Republican
party in November to be submitted as
aforesaid, every Republican elector
constitutionally and legally qualified to
be eligible to nomination.
Third. A State Convention to be
held, to be constituted as recommended
by the Continental Hotel conference,
whereof Wharton Barker was Chairman
and Francis B. Reeves. Secretary, to
select candidates to be voted for by the
Republican party in Noyember; its
choice to be limited to the candidates
now in nomination or unlimited as the
Independent State Committee may
prefer. The primaries or Convention
referred to in the foregoing propositions
to be held on or before the fourth Wed
nesday in August next under regula
tions or apportionments to be made bv
Dauiel Aguew, Hampton L. Carson,
and Francis B. Reeves, not in conflict,
however, with the acts of Assembly
regulating primary elections and the
cand'dates receiving the highest popu
lar vote or the votes of a majority of
the members of the Convention to re
ceive the united support of the party.
Fourth. A State Convention to be
held, to be constituted provided for
by the new rules adopted by the late
Republican State Convention, to select
candidates to be voted for by the Re
publican party in November ; provided,
if such Convention can be agreed to,
said Convention shall be held not later
than the fourth Wednesday in August.
The fourth propositions were all agreed
to, together with the resolutions ac
companying them.
To the above the following reply
was made by the Chairman of the In
dependent wing of the party, Mr. Mc-
Kee, who resides in Philadelphia. It
will be seen that he proposes to call to
gether the Committee of which he is
Chairman to consider the same. But
he accompanies his reply with a com
munication from four of the Independ
ent candidates by which it will be seen
they accept the third proposition, if
the same is so modified as to not only
withdraw both of the present tickets
but to exclude the candidates on the
same from nomination by the proposed
new Convention. It is as follows:
PHILADELPHIA, July 14. —At the
close of the conference of Independents
yesterday, Chairman McKee sent the
following to Chairman Cooper.
DEAR SIR: I beg leave respectful
ly to acknowledge the receipt of your
communication of the 12th inst., and
on behalf of the State Committee repre
senting the ludependent Republicans
of Pennsylvania I would state that the
gravity of the matter contained in the
communication is obviously so great it
would be improper for me to as
sume the right or take the responsibil
ity of making a definite response ac
cepting, rejecting or modifying the
suggestions contained in the minutes
of your committee and pr<>ee« dings, as
it is plain that tbo judgment of citiz'U
ship composing the Independent Re
publican organization must be compu
ted and obtained before 1 should be
authorized to reply with freedom and
candor to your committee's proposi
tions. I shall be uuder necessity, of
course, of calling together the State
Committee, of which I am Chairman,
to consider their purport. This will
necessarily cause some delay in the
preparation of a detailed reply to your
But, desirous as I am, and as I am
sure every true Republican must I>e,
to bring about an honoruble aud last
ing unity of Republican voters in the
State of Pennsylvania, upon the basis
of the principles to which they are at
tached aud which are embodied >n the
platform adopted by the convention
at Philadelphia, I have pleasure in
being able to inform you that I am
authorized to forward through you to
the candidates whom your committee
represents a proposition of the utmost
candor and directness, signed by four
out of five candidates whom this com
mittee represents, which is hoped by
the writers will commend itself to
your favorable judgment as a short
and sure road to the cordial union ol
all the Republicans in the Slate.
Confident that you must join with me
in the hope that its acceptance on the
part of the gentlemen to whom it is
addressed, anil to whose high patriot
sm and tru-,' party feeling it appeals,
may result in the elevation and
strengthening of thai party organiza
tion which in 1880 proved itself to
contain a large majority of the people
of Pennsylvania, 1 am, sir,
Very respectluily yours,
The letter of Chairman McKee was
accompanied by one from all the Inde
pendent candidates, except McMichael,
to the candidates on the Uegular ticket,
and reads as follows:
GENTLEMEN : By a communication
received from the Hon. Thorns V.
Cooper, addressed to us as candidates
of the Independent Republicans, we
are advised ofihe proceedings of the
State Committee, which assembled in
this city yesterday. Without await
ing the action of the Independent
State Committee, to which we have
referred the communication, and at
temptiug no discussion of the existing
differences or several metl ods propos
ed, by which to secure party unity, we
beg to say we do not see that any of
the propositions if accepted would pro
duce harmony in the party, but on the
contrary would lead to wider divisions.
We therefore suggest that the de
sired result can be secured by the
hearty co-operation of the respective
candidates We have no authority to
speak for the great body of voters now
giving their support to the Independ
ent Republicans, nor can we include
them by any action we take. We are
perfectly free, however, to act in out
individual capacity, and desire to as
sure you that we are not only willing,
but anxious, to co-operate with you in
the endeavor to restore peace and
harmony to our party. That this
can be accomplished beyoud all doubt,
we feel entirely assured, if you gen
tlemen are prepared to yield with us
all personal considerations and agree
to the following propositions :
First—The withdrawal of both
Second—The several candidates of
these tickets to pledge themselves
not to accept any subsequent nomina
don by the proposed Convention.
Under these conditions we will unite
with vou in urging upon our respeC'
tive constituencies the adoption of the
third proposition submitted by youi
committee, and conclude the whole
controversy by our final withdrawal
as candidates. Snch withprawal ol
both tickets would remove from the
canvass all personal as well as politi
cal antagonism and leave the party
united and unembarrassed.
We trust, gentlemen, that your
judgment will approve the method we
have suggested, and that, appreciating
the importance of concluding the mat
ter with as little delay as possible, you
will us your reply within a week
from this oate.
By all of which it will be seen the
matter is now narrowed down to the
single question, as to whether the two
old tickets should be withdrawn entire
ly and a new one nominated, or
whether the candidates of the preaeut
two should be considered again before
the people, with any other candidates
for nomination by the new Convention.
What answer will be made to this re
mains to be seen, and in a week or
two more we will know the result.

What good can be accomplished
through divisions in Pennsylvania,
or dissensions in New York ? None
whatever. The present is no time for
man-worship, no time to submit to the
dictation of self-constituted leaders.
Meu are nothing except in so far as
they are able to bring victory to the
standards of the party and perpetuate
its principles. If there are any Acbans
in the camp they must be cast out. If
there are any who would hinder the
onward march of the party they must
be trampled under foot. If there are
those who have no higher purpose to
serve than their own little petty am
bitions, they must be sent to the rear.
The present need is to close up the
ranks and march with locked shields
as when the days of Ltßcoln, Grant.

to-day as when it beat McClellan, j

A Hono-nble Career.
From Allegheny City Evening Mail, July 15. ,
j Very few public officials retire from
! office with such a record as Col. J. M»
i Sullivan, who has been a trusted em
ploye of the Government for nearly
fifl en vears as Collector of Interna-
Revenue in this District. We have re
ferred to his excellent management of
the office before, but a few words as a
I farewell to the gentleman wUI not be
: out of place at this time. At the first
I of the present month his successor took
charge and desiring to aid in making
the new administration a success, Col.
Sullivan went to v. ork and made out
the June and q- arterlj reports, for
which kindness Collector Jackson felt
very grateful Revenue agent Spaul J
ing, designated by Commissioner
Raum to superintend the transfer, made
a personal inspection of the accounts
and at the close of the examination
said to Col. Sullivan : "Your office is
right to a cent, and straight as a
string." He also spoke in very com
plimentary terms of the good manage
ment which always marked Col. Sulli
van's term of office and said the affairs
could not be improved. This honest
statement gives additional evidence,
abuadant and convincing, that it was
the earnest endeavor of the ex-collector
to so discharge the duties of the posi
tion as to serve the best interests of his
native State and district.
This was expected of him as he is
universally recognized as a man thor
oughly honest and sincere and of the
most stainless integrity. Tiue to his
convictions, he has never hesitated
ardently to advocate what he believed
to be right, though in so doing he,
with characteristic regard to the politi
cal feelings of those with whom he
differed, ever combined gentleness with
firmness. It has be i Col. Sullivan's
fortune to receive a unanimous vote in
the Senate when his name was present
ed for the office which he now vacates.
The first appointment was a genuine
surprise to the gentleman, as he had
not solicited the place and knew nothing
about it until notified by Hon. Thomas
Williams who recommended him. And
now after a record of 15 years honora
ble service, he retires to private life

Tiie News From E^jpt.
It is now evident that during the
bombardment of the forts, which began
on Monday of last week, the city of
Alexandria itselt was shelled in a way
of which the British dispatches gave
no idea. The widespread conflagra
tion that ensued upon the bombannent,
and the great amount of destruction
that has been wrought during the
week, are proof that the work of the
Driiish guns was vry thoroughly
done. According to the latest dis
patches of Admiral Seymour, the fires
were still raging last Saturday; explo
sions were heard from time to time ;
the incendiary's torch was in play;
and the greater part of the city is in
The force of British marines that en
tered the ciiy on Thursday was active,
and the state of things can be imagin
ed from the fact that perhaps not more
than a thousand marines are able to
hold their ground. They had soma
fighting in the streets; their Gatling
guns were brought to bear upon the
plunderers, who are spoken of as
Arabs, many of whom wero killed ; a
boby of marines was ordered to march
through the town and shoot all disor
derly persons, many of whom were
summarily dealth with ; the people left
in the city were panic-stricken, while
the naval guns from the men-of-war in
the ha r bor were said to be firing over
the city.
The Khedive himself is in a quan
dary. A proclamation prepared in
hts name calls for order in tne city,
and he has summoned the chief Pashas
to Alexandria to maintain it. But in
the mean time, while in his palace,
soldiers entered his appariment with
the announcement that they had or
ders to slay him, and it was ODly by
promises of money that they were in
duced to refrain from carrying out
their orders. After this episode the
Khedive put himself under the protec
tion of the British marines, and then
judiciously determined to seek safety,
with his harem, aboard a vessel in the
The action of EDgland has had the
approval of Germany and Austria, and
now we hare a semi-official announce
ment of the continuance of the aocord
between England and France, which
are expected to come to a definite un
derstanding respecting Egypt. It ap
pears that the Greeks also have not
forgotten the profit that accrued to
Sardioa from sending a contingent to
the Crimea during the English and
French war against Russia; for the
Government of Athens has expressed
its readiness to support intervention in
Egypt with a corps of 7,000 men.
How He Had 'Em.
"We've got 'era/ 1 ' cries out Mr.
Cooper. This forcibly brings to mind
the story of the frontiersman who came
tearing into camp followed by aiurious
grizzly, and shouting "Here we come!"

Arab! Pasha's Aim.
NEW YORK, July 16. —Rev. Dr. F.
S. DeHass, for two years United
States Consul at Turkey, in a lecture
to-night said: ".The present disturbance
is nothing less than civil war, rebellion
against the Sultan and Khedive Ara
bi Bey is a restless, ambitious Arab.
He has founded a national party and
is trying to in.itate Cromwell and
Garibaldi, and wants to drive out all
foreigners. And yet they owe evrey
thing to foreigners. There is nothing
in Egypt to build an independent gov
ernment upon. It would be l;ke the
negroes of the South trying to form a
government of their own. Dr. De-
Hass predicted that Arabi Bey would
fail utterly in his ambitious projects,
but he thought a religions war might
break out that would spread over Asia,
Africa and Europe, for Arabi is in
league with the new prophet Sewousi,
and also with the Sheref of Mecca, the
spiritual head of the Mohammedans,
in conclusion he said : "One thing is
certain, if this contest goes on, the
Ottoman Empire falls, and the Turk
will be driven out of Europe, the cross
will be planted again on the Mosque of
St. Sophia, constitutional government
will be established and foriy millions
of our own race be emancipated from
religious despotism."

Food In Tinned iCana.
It is stated by Professor Helmer, in
The London Lancet, that tin, even
wben quite pore is much more readily
attacked by canned articles of food
than is commonly supposed. He has
made an examination of a large number
and a great variety of such canned
goods, finding tin in comparitively
large quantities in nearly all of the
samples examined. Thus in the line
of acid fruits, as peaches and cherries,
the metal was found corroded to an
alarming extent: meats, and even
condensed milk, had taken up and be
come contaminated wiih sensible quan
tities of the metal. A can of soup
showed the presence of one-half grain
of tin to the pound ; one of condensed
milk, one-eight of a grain; and a can of
oysters about seven-eight of a grain to
the pound. Professor Helmer, contin
uing bis examination in this line, »3-
certained that soda water, and all
other varieties of sprated beverages
which were conducted through tinned
pipes, contained appreciable quantities
of tin.
