Republican Stato Ticket
COL. ROBERT 'B. BEATR, of Schuylkill
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.

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 acknowledgments for the hpnor confer
red, and the Legislative machine was
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. ,
" 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

IN former times, lhfr. Wallace used to
fornish young Democratic orators,
speeches for use during the campaign.
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? But, to this complexion must
we come at last.

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'

and alinost hopelessly aivaiting the re-'

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

ances, and 'the aye been:here already

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

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
