One of the strangest things done by the last SUte Legislature was the passage of an act providing for a Constitutional Con vention, provided the people vote in favor of it, and Gov. Pattison's approval of the bill is just as inexplicable as the action of the legislature. Qnr fundamental State law is, by gen eral consent, a good one. It is not perfect, and no law aver mad* by man has been, and therefore, its framers provided, in its eighteenth article, for its amendment from time to time, and til the trivial mistakes found in it ean be remedied by amend ments, that can be folly discussed and voted upon separately. But the proposition is to create a con vention for the porpoee of framing an en tirely new constitution, and for this, there was no mora call or demand throughout the State than than waa or is for a law changing the State lines or the location of the Allegheny mountains. The bill originated in the Senate, the body that unanimously sat down upon a resolution favoring an amendment to the National Constitution providing for the election of United States Senators by the popular vote, or in other words for remedy ing the defoot in oar National Constitution that creates the "machine " or confiden tial system of politics that has been such a corse to this State. However,we take it for granted, that the same mysterious power that pushed the bill throngh both branches of the Legislature, and eatued Gov. Petttaon to sign it, will see to it that there are enough votes to carry it throngb, and therefore it behooves us to select the beet men who offer themselves as delegates to the convention, so that in the event of there being one, our present and excellent fundamental law may not be entirely sacrificed. Whim the Nation, in general, rejoiced and made merry on Saturday last, there were some very end hearts in the land— hearts made sad unexpectedly. Two rail road aocideats had caused the sudden death of two docaa persons, and the horri ble deaUi b/ banting of several others. So ' long as human beings continue to move heavy mssses rapidly, so long will there be accidents, fatal to life. Railroad acci dents may be said to be unavoidable, and some of ns most die that the others be moved comfortably and quickly; but we think the day will oome when the publio will refer with astonishment to the risks of travel by rail today. Compared with the momentum of a fast moving train the superstructure of a passenger car is but as an egg shell to the power of a trip hammer, and we see no good reaeon why this should continue to be the case, or why suoh tremendous freight trains as the one that ran into the rear end of the passenger train at Ravenna should be allowed to be hauled by one engine. Cars built with iron or steel frames, and trains of such siae aa to be always under the control of their locom otirea should, we think, be the role on all roads. Habhibai Hamub, the last of our living ex-Vice President#, died at Bangor, Maine, last Saturday. He was brought np in the Democratic foith, and served that party in the Legislature of his state, in Congress, and as United States Senator, bnt startled his party and the Country on the 12th of June of 1856, by riaing in his seat in the Senate and declaring kis purpose of sup. porting Fremont for President. The Re publican convention of Maine, which met soon after, nominated him tor Governor, and in 1860 he waa put on the Republican national ticket with Linooln. Reeolotkme of Respect. Resolutions passed by the Epworth League of the M. I. church on the death of Howard Bediek. Whereas. It baa pleased the angels to beckon from the shores of eternity to onr beloved Howard Bediek, and while in the midst of youth he has gone down to Jordan's wave and crossed the resistless tide to answer in the roll call of Heaven, so when this corruptible shall have pnt on ivcorruption and this mortal shall have pnt on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written "Death is swallowed up In victory." Therefore, be it resolved that we express onr appreciation ofbl* r.ssit, :f hi-fnead , ship, of b<i as a member of the Epworth League and a worker in the vine yard of the Master, that we extend onr sympathy to the bereaved family and drape onr charter in mourning and that we for th ermore take the thought that, "Life is real, life is earnest." That "It is not all of life to live nor all of death to die;" that in his early and sudden death we are ad monished to be also ready for the Son of Man oometh at an hour when ye think not.

CiTlzßß-Not having noticed any local correspondence in your paper for some time we will chronicle a few local briefs. Oui glorious Forth is past and Branchton has again assumed its regular routine of business! Drilling is rapidly going on at the Donble oil well and developments are an ticipated by tbe last of the week. Miss Edith Moore of J acksville Pa was the guest of Miss Era Hall of Branchton last week. Mr. Joaeph Cooper of Slippery Rock Pa. was visiting friends at Branchton last . week. Geo. Shannon of near Branchton died on Wednesday of last week of dropsy of the heart. Tbe funeral ceremonies oocured on Friday. Tbe gas well drilled by McDonald A Co., on the Double form, has the greatest pres sure yet obtained, ganging the same at Branohton as at warren, more rigs are in conrse of construction and other develop ments will be made, and Branchton is looking forward to brighter and moropros perous days. XX Blaihb seems to be a very sick man. Seeing the Big Circus. What a handy thing it is to .hare a boy \ who want* to go the circus when yon feel like taking a look at it yourself. For over a year our boy Jim had been coaxing for a look at the biggest circus iu J the country, on account of the stories he j had been told about it by some of his play mates who were raised in or near it: and so it came about that on last Saturday morning a week, we were awakened by the colored porter of a certain car of a cer tain train and told that wo were nearing i New York. We dressed and got up. and found that j the train was speeding through the swam I py portion of New Jersey this side of Jer- . sey City. Everybody got out, the porter changed the berths back to seats and we j looked around, at the country and at our company in the sleeper. The old rooster who had corralled the whist party shortly after the train tad left Pittsburg the previous eyening and who had helped to keep up the racket half way down the Juniata was quiet and contem plative; the Pittsburg newspaper man,who went one eye on things was inclined to be talkative, and dilated on the section of track we were running over and which had taken the prize for years; the western coup le on their wedding trip looked contented and tried to look unconcerned; Dr. G. said he hadn't slept a bit and didn't feel good; Jim was bracing himself for a first look at the elephant, and the others —well we hadn't time to notice everybody. The train rolled OTer the elevated tracks into the new depot that the Pennsylvania Company is building at Jersey City, and we left it and went down the steps and got on the Conrtland St. boat, and the boat started across the Hudson, and Jim was getting his first ride on salt water, and looking down the finest harbor in the world. At the station on the other side we left Dr. G. talking to a man who wanted the job of taking his baggage across to the Ha vanna steamer which was lying at an Ea»t river pier and was to sail at and we went on up the street. The first thing that one who has not been in the citv for some years will notice is the elevated railroad-', which on narrow streets occupy the entire street on the level of the second stories of the houses and so darken the first stories that gas and electric lights are used all day. They make the ground floor of amt row street look like a suits again a t we and the streets crowded, coming "in great gangs from all directions" like Teeters'hounds,and we were sure something had happened somewhere, and mentioned the matter to the first Bine coat we came to, but he didn't seem to think so, so we went on to the hotel we had selected and got our breakfast. Thon we thought we would Btart out by locating ourselves, and went across the way and up Park Kow to the World or Pu- j ! litser building and got in the little round ' and dark elevator, and were yanked up to the top of it—and what a view one has from there—New York, Brooklyn, Jersey and hvf » dozen smaller cities; the homes and workshops of four million people; the Hudson, East river and the bay, the ship ping and the steamers, the wonderful bridge and the surrounding country mako a panorama unequalled on this Earth. When we were a boy we climbed up the iron ladder to the gilded ball on the top i>f St. Paul's and got some glimpses of Lon don through the fog, and we havo seen Washington, Paris and other inland and seaport cities from a heighth, but from no heightb can one See so great a variety of the workg of Nature and of man as from the top of the World building in New York. The building itself is but little hieh er than some of the adjacent ones, though it is thirteen stories hifth, bnt the i r '-«. dome, 150 feet higher, puts the sightseer above all surrounding objects and those who ride up -should walk down, and see the printing offices, the restaurants and the handsomely furnished offices. Our next sight was the Brooklyn briJge j —you go up stairs, pay three cents, and ride over. The cars are propelled by cables , and there are two trains going all the time. | We walked back over the footway which rises above the cages through which the cars pass, while the driveways are on either side. This bridge is one of the wonders of the world—that is one of the wonders made by man—and as its chief engineer was a Butler county Dutchman, a citizen of this county can take a local pride in it. . A visit to Dr. G. on his steamer, a ride up Broadway, dinner at an up town restau rant, and a walk up sth ave. to the park and back finished the first day for us, and two tired fellows one of whom had not slept iu the cars, were glad to get to bed. All the big hotels of the city, with a few exceptions, are now run on what is called the European plan—that is you pay at the desk for your room, and in the restaurant or dining room for what yon order, the price of each dish being printed on the bill of fare, and you eat when and where you A noticeable feature of all the restau rants, both down town and up town, is that they bring you hot, boiled milk for your coffee, and if you try it you will find that the hot milk makes a better combination with the coffee, than either cold milk or cream. A Pittsburger will also notice that the barbers use no sponges, and if you mention the matter, the barber will guess where you are from. The down town offices and the whole sale stores close at 6 o'clock, and then that part of the town becomes comparatively quiet, and the life and movement is trans ferred to the vicinity of Madison Square, two miles up Broadway from the P. 0. where mort of the big hotels and places of amusement are. If you are there in warm weather take your dinner at up town res taurant—the prices are nearly the same everywhere—and resd your evening paper in Madison Square. It's nice. Lower New York, with its immense office buildings on Broadway from Battery Park up to the vicinity of the P. 0. and on Wall street; the elevated railroads which are constantly carrying vast throngs of people, particularly in the morning when they come in and in the evening when tbey go out is a mechanical wonder; and upper Broadway and sth ave. with their numer ous large and elegant hotels, the palatial club houses and residences of the million airs, is an exhibition of wealth and gran deur beyond the imagination of one who bae aoi- «®eo it. The piost magnificent hotei we looked into was the •• riaza near the sth ave. entrance of the Park, and you cannot see how they could stuff more more in one building, the Vanderbilt resi dences are grand and some of them rather gloomy looking; St. Patrick's cathedral—a marble structure built in the shape of a cross—is beautiful, inside and out: and the Grand Central depot, from the bridge over the street back of it, from where one can see them making up and starting out trains for all the northern parts of the country is an interesting sight for a boy. Sunday is a great day in New York. There are lots or churches there and part, at least, of tbe immense population goes to church in the morning, but a far greater part, we judge, go out of town that after noon. Transportation is the only cheap thing about the place; the fare on the ele vated, or " L." roads, as they call them, for one block or the length of the line, eight or ten miles, is a nickle; you can go to Coney Island and back for 40 to 50 cts. according to the Toute you take, and there are a dozen of tkem; vou can go to Long Branch by Bteamer and back same day for 75 cts.; you can go a hundred miles up tho Hudson and back, or as far up Long Island Sonnd and back for 75 cts. or a dollar, and besides this there are excursions to country places, and everybody seems to go some where, Sunday afternoon. We wont to Coney Island. After a late breakfast and a look over the morning paper, we went down to Pier No. 1, of the North or Hud son river, which is just above the Battery Park or Castle Garden; one crowded stesmer started out just as we got there and we bad to wait half an huur iu the second-story of the pier for tbe next one; and the pier was soon full of people, some of whom amused themselves at the drop-a nickle-in-the-slot, catch-penny, devices that are being spread all over the country; then tbe steamer came and we had a delightful ride down the bay, through the narrows, and to one of the great piers built out into the sea from the beach of the island. The sun was hot, and we walked along the beach with our coats off to the fashionable East End " Oriental" hotel, whero the prices are put high enough to keep the common herd away, theu we rode back by tbe elevated railway to tbe Manhattan hotel and beach, where hundreds of people were dining and a few bathing, and then back by a public railway, to tho West Oi Brighton beacb, where all the circuses, restaurants, concert balls and all the catch penny devices you havo ever heard of were in operation. Hundreds of people were bathing there, and Jim and a Kentucky gentleman who had made our acquaintance ; took a dip together. The bathing house is quite a distance from the beach; on the lower fli or yon secure your bathing suit and deposit your valuables, then you g" to ' your room on the 'Jd floor and change your clothe*, putting the rubber bands holding vour key and check, over yonr head and around yoar neck, then you run down the "runway''and hop into the water. The water and wind were both cold and Jim didn't stay in long, and then we took a look around the place. There were two or three kinds of mem'-go-rounds in opera tion;. several kinds of swings; two in clined circular railroads, on which people were hoisted in small cars and then let flicker down and around, and flicker they did; an elephant restaurant and dozens of others, some of them with concert hall at tachments, and everything you could think of to got the money out of the crowd. A hundred Barnum circuses wouldn't equal it. The steamers and trains continued to come in crowded and by 4 o'clock that aiternoon we judged there were half a million people there, and they told us the season had not yet opened. The ride back was also de lightful; Bartholdi's statue of Liberty is a Sretty ornament for the bay, but the Dutchman's bridge, rising over the roofs of the houses and masts of the ships is the boss attraction. Monday was our big day there, as far as getting over grrund was concerned. e took the elevated cars at the Battery and rode the entire length of the line, up to 150 th street, looked at the High and Wash ington bridges or aqueducts over which the water supply of the town s lrom the Croton reservoirs ten miles up the country, walked up the hill to the high street-; run ning parallel with the Hudson, .ind louml that we were a mile or so above what we were looking for t. e. —Grant s tojnb - took the cable cars down to near it. an<; had another hill to climb to get to it.

The baby hippopotamus was a gieat attraction for Jim. That evening we walked through tbe Bowery, and the Five Point's district of the city—Mott and Baxter, and other streets — where the Chinese and Italian? live or rather herJ; crowded, warm, dirty streets, full of ill vUaged people and dirty chil dren, in strong contrast with the magmti cent wholesale in heXavy Yardin Brook- one of our new men of war, which is a very different affair from our old wooden ships. The third or navigator took us to his room and showed us his chronometers and a government watch that kept perfect time, and Jim it proved it by bis Waterbury. Then we did Wall street and the Stock Exchange, from the gallery ol" which you look down upon the "bear-garden" so called from tbe noise and fuss the fellows make who are selling stocks upon tbe floor. The Stock Exchange, Custom House and Sub-Treasury, are all near each other. On the steps of Sub-T.is a monument of Wash ington, commemorating the fact that he took his first oath as President of the United States there. The Custom House is a pillared, gloomy building, full of ofli ces, and if you are expecting dutiable goods on a steamer, yon roust go there and swear to the manifest, and pay the duties, get a release ticket and go to the wharf and take the goods away within a certain time, or els© the officials will chuck them into a store house and charge storage.Then wo called upon some friends at their offices and went to a steamship office, and got a ticket of admission to one of the big. trans Atlantic steamers and found our way to her pier, on North or Hudson river, " taking iu" Washington market,where the sea tur ties and shell fish interested Jim on thejway undwc-e luwlrtTfiTftver tbe steamer when he I hadto get him back to the hotel and doctor him up- I had been rush ing him too hard. A twtdve-year-old gets tired all over, physically and mentally,see ing sights. -n Next day we intended going up the Hud son, but Jim said he had seen enough, and didn't to see or hear any more; so we took the 9 a. in. train and at midnight after a pleasant ride through the State wo were iu Pittsburg; and Pittsburg looked dirty and shabby after New York. If Chris Magee'f government is doing its duty by the town, it can't prove it by the appearance of that part of it the stranger sees on his way from Union depot to his hotel. Next morning we were back in Butler, and the town looked bright and cbeerlul to us. When our principal streets are paved, the Bidewalks completed, Diamond Square improved, and one or two of the more conspicuous corners built up, we will have as pretty a small town as you will find an}*where. Onr Council is spending some money for us at present, and putting us in debt, but we believe the money is being well spent, and that no scandal will follow the reccrd of their proceeding.

The train was already forty minutes late, when it stopped at Ravenna, and something wrong about the engine necessitated a further delay of a few minute?. The second train was an immense one of twenty-four car-, loaded with dressed meat for the eastern markets, the road into the depot was down grade, the brakeman of the first train went back but a short dis tance. the engineer of the freight conld not stop his train, and his engine plowed through the rear car of the first train, crushing and mangling nearly everybody in i,t and then the car took fire and severa of those who had not been killed out right were burned to death. Men and boys were caught in the wreck and burned to death while crying for help. The next to the rear coach, a sleeper, was also wrecked and took lire and people were burned to death in it. Two little girls were imprison ed in a berth and were roasted there; a woman who had a little baby in her amis hung half way out of the car as it turned and asked to be taken out. "Oh, God!" she cried, ''will no body do anything for me.
