Contrary to the fears of those who
constantly predict evil, and also to the
hopes - of. those who • desire that
honesty and party strife may prevail, the
Senate of Pennsylvania,• is practi
cally organiZed. On the third day of
the session, Mr. BuckaloW voted for the
Republican candidate, and thus secured
an election which might have been de
layed a full month. This was done by
the direction of the Dynocratie caucus,
and it was just the same in effect, ,as
though each Democrat la the Senate had
voted with the Republicans for Speaker.
The distinguished Senator who cast tlie
vote that effected the organization,
doubtless, contributed very greatly to
influence the caucus to take such action,
and is on that score, entitled to much
greater credit than some of his col
leagues, who would, doubtless, have
preferred a different course, but so far
as the act of voting is concerned, lie is
just in the same position as those who
authorized him to take that action.
`We-accord-to-the-Democratic Senators
full credit for their course. It was fair,
honorable and manly. Doubtless it was
only their plain duty, and any other
course would have rendered their liable
to censure. It must be remembered,
however, thAt in the present condition
of politicians, it seems to be regarded as
'4,;" a necessary incident to party fealty, that
the enemy is to be fought to the bitter
end, under all circumstances, with all
means possible, and without regard to
consequences. This is a "most deplor
able 'heresy, and it should be traidi
cated at once. The action of the Der
cratic :' -- Senators in the election 'Of
Speaker, and the action of Mr. Brod
head, in issuing his writ, when in his
• judgment the time had come for such
action, will do much toward suppressing
trickery and dishonesty in future in our
State Politics.
The speedy organization of both
branches gives promise of a short, active,
and harmonious session. There are
many subjects of
• general importance,
for the consideration of the Legislature,
and they will, doubtless, receive the
attention which they d•-serve. It is most
fortunate that both parties begin the
session- with very little of the bitterness
which usually attends their intercourse.
Should it continue to the close, both the
Legislature and the State will have
much added to their reputation.
The country received a rather extra
ordinary sensation by the announcement
of the murder of Col. James Fisk, of
New York. Ile was shot down deliber
ately bj a broker..of that city, named
Edward' S. Stokes, as he was entering
the Grand Central Hotel, on Saturday
evening. Fisk survived until about noon
on Sunday, during which time he iden
tified the assassin, made information
against him, and executed his own will.
Stokes is in prison to answer the charge
'of murder. He has made no statement
as to the motives which induced the
crime, but lets attributed to some. dilli
culties,which grow out of the relations
both sustained to the somewhat notori
ous Helen Jo'sophino Mansfield, who has
figured lately in two or three suits
against - MA. Both Fisk and his assas
sin wore married men, and both were on
terms of suspicious intimacy with the
above named lady, who, had for some
reaSon, repudiated her own marriage
some years since.
Fisk as, perhaps, in his' own line,
the most \ remarkable man of his time.
No private citizen in this country has
ever figured so conspicuously in the pub
, lie eye, as the late Vice President of the
Erie railroad. Ho began active life in
Vermont as a peddler, where his wagons
and horses attracted as much attention,
relatively, as his railroads and steam
boats have done recently: He after
wards became a salesman, then a con
tractor, and then a cotton smuggler.
After lie had made., some money lie set
up a dry goods store, which used him
up, financially, in a very short time.
In 1804 he went to New York, and
, opened a broker's Office. Hero he soon
attached himself ,to Daniel Drew, and
was soon ,conspicuous iu the fight with
Vanderbilt for the Erie Railway. 'The
complications resulted•in Making Fisk
and Jay Gould.directors of - IfluwmpatlY,
and uniting these two mola for general
offensive operations. Since his election,
,Fink's name has been daily before the
country in connectiolkwith the most as
tounding schemes' of scientific robbery
conceivable. He it was who put
on the market 50,000 shares of Erie
stock, fraudulent', issued, - -just at a
time when Vanderbilt had forced up
the -price,- and - thus- compelled his
agents - to .buy worthless stock
at high figures. When the--courts-is
sued an order to arrest him for this act
done in contempt of their injunction,,lie
• bundled up -the whole Erie directory,
books, papers and $7,000,000, and car z
vied them all over to Now. Jersey, whore
ho remained until he coUld, niako terms
with his adversaries. As soon as tlih
Legislature met, his partner, Gould,
went to Albany, ainl at a cost of about
half a million of dollars scoured an act
legalizing the - fraudulent issue of stock.
The proceeds of this enormous -swindle
were divided 'among several parties so
as to got rid of the numerous suits that
out of thii'proceeding, and the Erie
\'!; , Railw ay • was handed over to,,,Pisk and
Gould—Gould becoming President and
Treasurer, and Fisk Vico President and
Controller. •
This Was his first and most magnifi
cent-operation. It would be useless to
attempt 'an outline of his subsequent
achievements. They Consisted in the
main of the capture of a Coupleof Courts,
an alliance with the Tammany. Ring, tile
buying of theatres, steamboat linos,' and
whatever else was intended to rifikohim
conspicuous or powerful.• His- conspire
, cMs with the adventtirers in Wall street,
for Purposes of plunder, and' especially
the operations of "Black 'Friday"
which were attributed to him as their
prime mover,
,have filled— the ondre
world 'with amazement. - Hie unexpected
Murder was, perhaps, loss of a sensation
to the businesS world, - than wore the .
chomelq, which lie - seemed to'havid, the
power tofdovclop daily. His_ death will
'leave a void Italie luisiness eirolcsof,tlio
country, _which fortunately Will never be
—1 entirely tilled:-
- There is ono ciremnstanco conhected
with this murder, on -which it would be
• well to reflect seriously. It may ho said
' to be at least nearly folated to that class
' of homicides, which have tioeivcd on
' normal occasions , the , approval Of' the
juice' which tried them, and also to
very largo. &tent, :the sanction of tho,
public press. It is tho old story 4 ' there
was a woman in it." It M true that she.
was neither I,esrally or morbfly, the wife
of either, but that makes little'
once in principle: In the numerous
oases, beginning with the Sickles trial,
and endirkwitlthat,of McFarland, the
aCqUittals • simply establibind the fact,
that there verb - cases - in which-a man
might bo the mienger of his own wrongs
to the extent of taking him' fellow's-life.
It is true that this violation-of the
letter of the law was justified, on the plea
of insuring the sanctity of the marriage'
relation, but among'inen of the, class of
_Fisk and Stokes, this would very natur
ally receive quite a liberal construction.
There must be an and of this justifica
tion of deliberate murder for any cause,
and we hope that 'even 'the Courts of
Now York have not yet become so com
pletely modernized, as to make it oven
possible that Fiskrii assassin will escape
the extreme penalty of the law.
WE print iu this issue the message
of Governor Geary, to the present ses
sion of the Legislature. It is in all
respects a most excellent and satisfactory
State paiidr. The condition of tifell-nan
ces of the State is shoWn to be most
-satisfactory. - Since 1866, eight millions
seven hundred and twenty-four thousand
-three—hundred—and -thirty-eight-dollars
of the debt of the State have been paid ;
leaving the present debt $28,080.07-1.
There are assets in the Treasury amount
ing $10,876.808, which leaves a net indebt
edness of $18,103.263. Wo doubt if any
other State in the Union can show as
satisfactory a financial exhibit during
the same period.
• The transactions .George 0.. Evans,
about which Glare has beet:its° much
chimor, are very clearly and-satisfactorily
set forth, and we invite a general scrutiny
of them. They show the necessity foe
`the settlement of the claims ,with -which
he.was-Cutrusted_and_the _benefit -w h ich
has accrued to the State from his services.
His compensation is now a matter for
the courts and, will be - determined ex
actly in the same manner in which all
disputed claims are settled.
The wisdom of the suggestions made
in the message is apparent and is univer
sally recognized. The Governor declares
in favor of constitutional reform, com
pulsory education, a liberal policy to
ward all educational institutions, the
codification of our laws, compulsory
measureslo prevent the spread of con
tagious diseases, the removal of the
quarantine to a greater distance from
Philadelphia, and the establishment of
a State Board of Health.
Governirr Geary coneiences the last
year of his second term under peculiarly
favorable circumstances, The honesty
and ability which have marked his ad
ministratio'd are conceded by all parties,
and he stands higher now as a man and
magistrate than at any
. previous period
of his public service. The present year
will, doubtless, witness the consumma- .
Gen of many of the measures recom
mended in his present message, and thus
add greatly to the benefits his adminis
tration has conferred upon the State.
W. MAcice.N. will be elected
to-day State Treasurer, for one year from
the first day of-May oast. This is Mr.
Mackey's third election, and it shows hew
fully the representatives of the icioplo ap
preciate Lis ability.

truth there is in the constant cry 'concern

ll,t¢+uaDUßU, JANUARY 187'2
The session of 1872 begun on Monday
last, and although the organization of the
Senate is not yet complete, both branches
may be said - to be substantially in working
order. The House net at lone on Wed

the election of Mr. Elliott, of .Philadelphia,
as Speaker ; (ten. Selfridge, AS Chief Clerk ;
Mr. Morrison, of Butler, asA. ii

John A. Smull, as Resident Clerk. A little'
difficulty arose uvlr the admission of the
member from Warren. 11 appears the
vote ivas very close and the return judgon
at first gave a certificate to Green, the
Demberatie candidate, showing.a majority
of live votes. Subsequently the judges
made another certificate which showed the
election of Sit art, floe Republican candi

trouble in the affair grove, out of the fact,

the return jpdgelt 6 discarticd the return
certificate in one township, and took the
figures on the tally purr: After reflec

by the return certithiate and therefore
gave a new certificate in accordance with
the , figures sit?lyn, by it. The cane was

Since Mr. Connell's death this action of the

Bever dome, 'MY father failel in:
business and ilioLfamily Were reduced to:
extremitie. 'Omething must be done to
keep the wolf from the door, and my
mother and myself were the only ones who
seemed able to do it. It via resolved that
my, mother should take boarders and that
-I should assist her. But my inexperience,.
aWavated by a weak back,•eoon prOved
me to be of little use. ' It wits then pro
posed that I should teach music, which I
should have been.only too glad to do, but
I was utterly incompetent. Of music as
a science, I know , ipranticallj nothing. I
could read correctly scarcely it-single bar.
It \vas finally determined tittit I should set
up a day-school; and in order to prepare
for this, I visited several schools in the
My to see how (bey were conducted and
ivliat was the usual course of. study. What
was my chagrin to find that girls in the
second and third classes knew more than
I did of the essential rudiments. I came
home mortified to my inmost soul and
sat down in sackcloth and ashes. In that
state of mind I remained for days and
weeks, realizieg; for the first time fully,
what a fool, what a
_perfect. Ond absolute
had been during all those delicioua
Carlisle years. No words can express my
sense of shame or measure the depths of
my humilirition. After many dreary
weeks in this condition the darkness began
to lift and daylight slowly to reveal itself.
I had got down deeper till at last I stood
.on a solid f&unlation. • My foot was on
the Rock, and I felt strong in a strength
Which was not all any own. I now saw
suriiiway out of all my troubles. The good
Father above had heard my sobs and had
speaking—given me •i beauty
for ashes, the oil of joy for,mourning, and
Abe—garment- of praise for the spirit—of
- heaviness." With cheerful face and reso
lute heart I gave up for the present all
purpose of teaching, and set tMyself in
'earnest to work as n learner. I began
with the eleMents of arithmetic and gram
mar, and never stopped till f had acquired
a proper innsicry of both these branches,
as well as a fair knowledge of rhetoric,
and datut'al philosophy, no it is taught, in
schools. Thus qualified 1 was accepted .

A wire and a step-mother in a large social

first ideas of love and happiness had been
formed in - Carlisle from Mrs. Phillips*s
circulating library. They were gathered
