AS IT A Democratic State. qonvention' met at Harrisburg last week, to nominate -candidates for State Officers, and to an nounce anew the political creed Of that party. Its nominees are men who were soldiers, who fought, perhaps, just as well, and certainly, no better than at least one 'hundred thbusand other sol diers, who are unknown „and unheard, _fifty_miles from thdiT.,presenf place of residence. "Getieral,`V' - rallfeY - Colotrel - McCandless, who leads the ticket, when offered the position of a brigadier gen-- oral, refused it on the ground that his self respect would not allow hint to.coun tenance the measures of the-Republican administration, by accepting promotion from it, and declaring that the post of honor was that of the private citizen, he withdrew from the field at a time when soldiers wore sorely needed. It is only justice to him,. to say that this piece of folly should 'not be taken as a fair index of his character. A lot of Philadelphia :politicians, who, with a desire to use him, were flattering him to his ruin induced him to do thiS imry silly act,- for-which he has-doubtless repented often. Ile is,. perhaps, as good a man as could he induced just now, to take a Democratic nomination for a State office, and he will be beaten justabout as badly and not any worse, than would any one else on whom the honors of the Demo- Cratie party Might have been flung. Capt. Cooper, the candidate for Surveyor Gen eral, is a person who was doubtless intro duced to 3lessrs. Cassidy, McMullin, Lester Smith and Juhn Tobin, about an horn- before he was nominated, and thus .he and those magnates of the Demo cratic party became mutually. aware of thM existence of each other. But if the nominations were by no means remarkable, the platform on which the : gentlemen found themselves mount ed, is one of the curiosities of American polities. All that is in it that van not be explaindd, to mean anything that is necessary to obtaiti , the, vote of anybody who needs conversion, are the following resolutions, and if they -are not unadul terated Republicanism, we don't know where to find the article. The first is the cue w hick winds up the negro suf frage business, and is :is follows ; " llesolecd, That, we recognize the binding obligation of all the provisions of the constitution of the united States as they now exist, ?hid we deprecate the discussion of issues which have beeirset:' tied in the manker and by the an thority constitutionally appointed : " The second is 'the endorsement of the financial policy of Mr. Boutwoll, and . runs thus : "Resolvid, That the public debt is liinding upon the nation, amionust be Paid ; and that we are unalterably op posed to any and all movements looking towards repudiation, direct or indirect, but in justice to the laboring and produc ing classes the- rate of interest thereon should be reduced at the earliest practi cable date." Hero we have in a word, the grand fizzle of Delhoeratic pretensions. „The Constitution, as it is, recognizes the equality of all men before the taw, with out distinctioh of race, color or previous condition, and it places in every man's hand the ballot to secure his rights. The Constitution that does this justice, was made to do it by the Republican party. ale Democratic turfy acknowl edges its binding force. The Republi cans say tlytt, thesequestions are settled for all time, and the Democracy say they deprecate even the discussion of the old issues. What can we say more? Grant's administration took up . the gauntlet against every kind of repudiation, and proceeded at once to reduce the rate of in terest on the National debt. The Democ racy say that " them's our sent intents ex actly- and hitre all issues cease. 13 tit. trhat has become of that valiant old organi?zat ion that - eidled itself tin white man's party, and run the heaviest imaginable tilts against the bloated bond holders,t) Must uc 111!Ver again of the hor rors • 1111 , Mgehati011, Of the natural suptemaey ui the. white race, 1/r of thfl 1 , 1:111 01 1 paying government bonds by the issue of o•ks ?

Oi I• the Cata pl .)ed HARRISBURG LETTER. • \lad• :10, 11471 The -Legislature:.greatly to the delight cif every one, except the hotel keepers of this goodly city, has at length adjourned and gone. On Wednesday last, the Clouse agreed to go through the forniality of appointing a committee of conference, on the Registry aet, and the Senate, although every Senator jmow that there • was 116 i king in it at all, accepted the tendered olive branch, :mil went to work. Saturday last, at noon, was agreed upon by. both branches, as the ,time fur floal' adjournment, . and every_ body wenl to work industriously to clear uit the tailendars , ,as far as possible, be fore that time. An immense number of private or local, hills were liannne'red through, while the committee of Con ference on the appropriation bill, were completing their labors. Late on Friday afternoon, the punderiam document was ' - presented with the report of the com mittee, and the most important measure of the session, was ready for final liction.• In the Senate, a NW gentlemen briefly *fined their positions, and then the bill passed, In the House, the clause giving chambertiburg an appropriation of $300,- 000 raised consitlerable'biteitement; , 34 for a time threatened to defeat the bin. After considerable splurging,, a vote was finally ;talon, and the bill passed, ayes nays 41. Everybody was relieved. 'The montberswho had about drawn all their -pay, felt that the-Treasury- offices were inotected, and those 'ivho had any prospective interest in. the Dill; were ex ceedingly thankful that it had escaped accidents at so, critical a period. . . After the passage or the Appropriation hill there was nothing fey tile Legisla ture to do but to kill the'Ciine'eniaining until the hour of adjournment'. This Was 'done ,in n miety - of- ways. The 'usual votes of thalilcs to Spealiers, Chap lains, Clerks' and Pages, were given. Speaker Webb received a watab, a-pie :tura, a Over pitehoriand no ivory gavel, with a speech accompanying ca ob. Glen. Selfridge also came in for a lot of things and - speeches. In the Senate, the offi cers got. alSo 'a -lot or watches -and silver ware; perhaps not so -"many as did those of the Rouse, but thou they were saved from Up infliction of any speeches, so on' the whole, the mm;(3 was abo/it even. After all these things were over, the Senate proceeded to elect ti Speaker _ad interim. The Democrats voted for Senator Broad , head, of Carbon, and the Republicans for Senator Rutan, of Beaver. Mr. Wallace then read his little valedictory. Mr. Broadhead was sworn, and read his 1 1 acknowledgments for the hpnor confer red, and the Legislative machine was stopped. 1 - This mollifiable Legislature was fn session for five full months, and yet less busi7s of an important character was -fran cted-Ahttn-at- any-former -session,- The Apportionment bill, the Appropiia-; tion bill, and the_ hill regulating Public Printing, were all the legislation iu which the people at large were inter ested. The rest of the labor consisted in the usual amount of private jobs, and local legislation, nearly all of which, to use the language of Senator Buckalew, "tsas either frivalous, or entirely per nicious." The great and important measures of the session, constitutional reform'and the considefation of the civil code, were entirely ignored. The Sen ate, with a presumption on the indul gence of the pimple: that was really as.; tonisldng, frittered away almost two mouths, in which the majority had an understanding that no House bill should be etisidered at all. This, with the ad ditional outrage of refusing to"alleW the seat of Senator Dechert to be contested, fully demonstrated how determined the Democratic party are to resort to any revolutionary measures whatever, at their own good will and pleasure. And as by the present Apportionment bill the Senate will remain pemoprdtie, at least 1 one year longer ; the Republicans who, last year contribute - a to this lamentable 1 condition of things, can view the result's of their work with whatever feelings in the matter they may see lit to indulge. It should, also he stated, as an item of news, that the Democratic State Con vention met here last week, to nominate candidates for Auditor and Surveyor General.. The convention was a very meagre and spiritless affair, there being no :ttt.ettdanee whatinlir, outside of the delegates. Gen. MeCandfcss, and (.:apt. Cooper, receiVed the nominations, and were placed on the advanced platform of the party— negt.o citizenship,. negro sufitage, and the payment of the .Na tional debt. The old hunkers in the party, strury and gnashed their teeth vigorously, but it vas no go—the pro gressive of the party mete bouml to . have live issues to tight on, and Chop prevailed. It wont make much differ envy, however, whether time Demisulicy accept the situation or not, their cant • paign will he as others have been here tofore. , THE DEMOCRATIC Sc . 11 , .ItSAI' " Vall:Mdigham," says the Cincinnati Gdzeite, "advertises a new suit, of princi ples for the Democratic party. On dis play it turned out to be only, a sat of Republican old clot lies. Item is a steady market for the worn out garments of the Republican party.

JAwas a pretty easy thing to do,• when the colored 'gentleman was to be abused, but since dead issues are to be discarded, it will require more trouble. Won't it be rare fun to hear our eloquent orators of the Democratic party, convincing the unterritied of the rural districts, that the Amendments to the Constitution are binding?

A2irOTHEIC A VONDA LEA PITTSTON, Penn., May 28.—A column of smAre, which soon'grew.dense, riaim; from the shaft of the West Pittston mine yesterday afternoon, at 2 o'clock, told that the shaft was on fire, • and cans, t an immediate rush of all' the :people' about here for the rescue of the miner• one miners known to be below. Theme succeeded 24 hotirs of desperate exertion to•sttbdue thefli•e and to penetrate the . recesses of the mine before all .the' un fortunate men should be suftocate&'•A; the cud of that period, the last of the ns who had.•&en entombed' was 'bronght.t 0 the surface. Ilightepp wore dead. Most of the others woretn a state of insensi bility when found; but recovered itpoit reaching the air aboire ground. the horrors,of , Avondale 'fresh in their minds, few had dared..to hope that .any of these Men should: be saved, and the drief-strieli r eC.: women 'and , 'eldfdren olsutered as near ns they coeld,ebotitthe mouth Qf the :shaf4 Waiting' piteously, and alinost hopelessly aivaiting the re-' suit of the search below. To, some of them, who were at first appalled by the sight of the apparently lifeless body of a brmfght to the surface, there came thelgreat happiness of find ing that it was but a seeming death. But rising above all else were the , lond lamentations of newly made widows and orphans, and strong men paled as they . worked about the shaft' with almost frenzied energy. 4s the news of the disaster spread peo ple came front all the cotiCtry round, on foot and in earriaq,es and other eonv'iiy ances, and 'the aye been:here already _over _10,00.-...The_bostle,__exeitoment, and-violent anguish 'attending the efforts. at rescue are now succeeded by settled gloom and stillness, though within houses here and there, the sobs of be reaved ones are heard. The West Pittston mdue.eimwned and operated by Brown A: Blake. It has but one opening, and, as required by . the provisions oc.the Ventilation act, ,passed after the Avondale calamity of last year, gangs of men were at work opening a second haft. At 2 p. m. the engineer began hoisting out those who were be low, their eight hours worldiaving been completed. Three carriage loads of men had been raised when the fire was dis covered. It spread rapidly along the dry wood work above and diiwit the sides of the shaft. The situation thus became a purred - parallel to that at Avondale. The-engineer remained at, his post, and though enveloped in smoke, lowered and hoisted the carriage four times ; but, it seems, no more- men were brought up. The rope-was thou burned off, the car riage fell into the shaft, and the engineer, after being much injured, made his escape from the flames. The' Month of the shaft is conspicuously located, so that all the people of the valley wore speedily made aware of the nature of the disaster,' nod hurried to the place.' By 2 o'clock the breaker and engine house were ncatly consumed, and men had begun clearing away the debris, to enable the firemen to get' to work as soon as possible. - Neantime,:lire migines had, been telegraphed for and soon arriyed from, Pittston, Kingston, Wilkesbarre, and Scranton. Tire Susquehanna is half a mile distant, and it was necessrry to In ing water from it. A line of 3 . 00 men, with buckets, was formed, teams were einzaged iii hauling water, and locamotives wore employed in bringing ttp their tanks fulluf water fat Orr , supply Or the steamers, It was It.:10 o'clock before Ills steady. streams of water pooped into the mouth of the shaft had subdued the tire as to enable the shaft, to be cleared, and pre parations to be made -for a descent. 'Thousands of men, women and children had in-the meantime assembled from every direction. It became necessary to_ stretch ropes about the month ofWte shaft . , and to adopt a system of police, as at Avondale, to keep back the crowd. Meanwhile nmnerout superintendents, managers, engineers, and other leading men had arrived, and the wink I,l.M:ceded more - systematically than in the fir:A hours of wild terror and excitement. A.1„.7. a (log was let down into the shaft for some distance, and after remaining three minutes was brought up alive. Ile_ was then lowered to the bottom, 280 feet, and on ,being raised, after fife minutes, was 'found to be apparently uninjured, This gave hope for the safety of the !Miters. Hut when a temporary frame work was placed at the mouth, and WU liam Low, of the Pennsylvania Coal elom lead been lowered 75 _feet, with a rope attached 'to his Ig, he reported serioui 0b.4 - ructiOlN In the shalt. It was then feared that before they could be cleared and the men reached they would be drowned by the rise of water in the ;nine, if not stawated hour, before.

We arc sorry there was not a large mil:Hence present to show their apprecia , tion of the merit of this Association. We consider it the duty of all to encourage home talent by their patronage, particu larly when the entertainments are so far . superior to the large majority of the travelling shows .which almost weekly come atnony - us. This Association has made much progress during the past winter, and we are pleased to learn that it is the intention to reorganize next Fall, and make it a permanent institu tion.
