A correspondent who writes from Mt.

that one of thkeauses assi ned for the fatal

a body of tagn an t water within a few miles

fourteen deaths occurred in the immediate
neighborhood. This is a hint worthy of
attention. ( '
The Democ at of last week reads the de
moralized emocracy of this region a short
lecture in which it says, " The mental cir

sternly against the oppressor and expanding
towards the oppressed."' This is all very
pretty, anti no doubt the Democracy will
feel much encouraged by it; but can't. you
come down to . questions in which men still
on earth are interested? What do you think,

It is reported that the "liberal" and Dem
ocratic politicians of New York city, just
after the late "People's" Convention in
Ohio, held a conference to consider the ex
pediency of a public meeting to ratify the
new-party movement. After a general in
terchange of views, they concluded that it
was prudent to wait and ape what the Ohio
Democracy proposed to do about it. They
have seen by this time, and we don't hear
any more of " ratification meetings,
The receipt of good news when only bad
news was looked for is always somewluft
exhilarating, and we may therefore be ex
cused a little self-congratulation on the fact
that our country bas,carried off all the hon
ors at the great fair at Vienna, so far as
farming implements are concerned. But
after . all this is nothing to brag of, for Amer
ican machinists have so long been in ad
vance of the whole world in ingenuity and
workmanship, that little additional glory is
to be gained from this latest triumph of
their craft. To have failed would have
been - disgraceful, and to succeed is, ,r there•
fore,l satisfactory.. The truth is that the
American farmer has the most efficient, the
lightest, and the handsomest tools to work .
with that the "wit of man has Yet devised,
and all the world has conic to.k now the fact.
The New York Sun is a very rabid anti
Grant paper, but nevertheless it is alile to
see the folly of all the sally twaddle about
" Cresarism" that a few sensational sheets
have been amusing themselves with recent-,
ly. It also justly appreciates.the full force
of the " new-party" movements in Ohio
and elsewhere. Here is what it , has to say
on both these subjects:
"It is rather foolish for people who have•
not got any baby to be quarreline , about a
name for one; and it seems to us altogether
idle for politicians who haven't any party
to work themselves into excitement about
party names. Call them the Liberal De
mocracy,' says one; call them the Liberal
Republicans, says another. Call whom by
these names?, Why, the rising Opposition
which is going to overthrow Grant. But
there is no Grant to be overthrown. There
is a Grant, to be sure; but no overthrowing
of him will be required. He i 9 already
elected for his second term, and if he lives
is likely to serve it out."
It is to be hoped that every memb - er
the Vigilance Committees for the several
districts will be promptly at his post next
Saturday, and stay there until his duty h
fully discharged. The work of a man hold
ing this position is simply that of a judge
of election, and the fact that he is not sub
ject to thp pains and penalties of the law
should.render him none the less scrupulous
in executing the work confided to him. He
should see to it that every man entitled to
vote has a fair chance to do so, and that no
man who is not entitled to vote is suffered
to pollute the ballot-box. It is hardly nec
essary to say that every man holding the po
sition of return judge should carefully ab
stain from any attempt to electioneer for
any particular candidate or cause. The
place calls for the exercise of absolute im
partiality and qfilexible, integrity, and any
man who cannot curb his partisan feelings
for the time being has no business lb hold
It is evident that the men who engineered
the coalition campaign last year are not
highly pleased with the present political
outlook. The day after the Democratic
conventions In Ohio and 'Virg"min the New

"If the reactionary Democrats of Ohio
wanted to sign and seal a bond against fur
ther Allen county heresies or new depart
ures, or anything newer than the Resolutions
of '9B, they Could not have done better than
they have in %their nomination of William
Allen for Governor. Ex-Senator Allen is
the typical war-horse of the Democracy in
Ohio. Before Thurman, or Pugh, or Pen
dleton were, he was. In forty years he has
hardly known a change. He has always en
joyed a reasonable, popularity, and will,
doubtless, make as good a run as anybody
in his circumstances could. The rest of the
ticket is made up on the pattern suggested
by its head. (The resolutions, too, are in
strict harmony with the nominations, though
the pitiless logic of events has forced some
expression of opinion on accomplished facts.
In short, the platform, glittering and gene—
ral as it is, does not materially differ from
those which have been given to the world
within the year. Not more wise than the
Ohio Democrats have the Virginia ConSerak,
athes proved themselves. So Or ns they
have gone in their Convention, they Labe
shown enthusiasm only at the utterance of
the old rallying cry of " A white man's
government for white men." This ancient
slogan and some vulgar abuse of their op
ponents, the Republicans, seemed toi indi
4-..ate high water mark in the Richmond Con
vention yesterday. Perhaps a better spirit
may overtake the Virginia Democrats before
they adjourn; but, so far, their echoes sound
like echoes of a very aged past."
The . Question of the Day.
Next Saturday afternoon the Republicans
of the county are to vote for candidates for
several county offices. -No doubt every vo
ter iu the county is well aware what places
are to be tilled by thd popular choice this
fall, and well acquainted with the names of
the candidates who present theniselves for
those places. if any man is in doubt upon
either of these points, a glance at the head
of our first editorial column will enlighten
him fully. We have nothing more to say
upon this point, except to urge each voter
to go to the polls next Saturday and vote
for the candidate whom he prefers for each
of those °likes. In a certain sense the pop
ular mode of nominating candidates is on
trial this year. Let us have a full and fair
vote, and we hav4 an abiding faith that the
present system will be vindicated by the
nomination of a ticket which every candid
man will acknowledge to be an excellent
one, and which will receive the full party
support in October.
Bitt while the nomination of ticket is Of
absorbing personal interest to the candidates
and their friends, there is a question to be
decided next Saturday of more lasting im
portance to the people at large. We refer,
of course, to the mode of nominating can
didates. To this question we have already
devoted considerable time and space, pub
lishing all that we have received from cor
respondents upon the subject. We have de
sired that the question should be considered
from every stand-point and be viewed in
very possible light, and we have therefore
taken pains to print the objections to the
Present system as stated by its opponents,
and to show as far as possible the actual
Timeliest workings of the proposed delegate
system. We have done all this because we
wished to have the question understandingly
as well as definitely and decisively settled.•
We do not propose now to waste the read
er's time or our own crowded space by re
tracing the ground already passed over; but
we wish to state one or two points as briefly
as possible, and so leave the question with
The proposed delegate system is in fact
the application to the county of the plan
which has long been in operation on the na
tional field in selecting the President and ,
Vice President. It is well known to every
st dent of our political history - that it .wits
th expectation of the statesmen who estrib=
li ed the , present mode of electing thoin
officers that the electoral college - would be
made_ up of the beat men in the several
States, who would be left Ire :to choose the
persons whom ' they considered best quail
tied to Jill those high positions. poi , quick
ly and how thoroughly - this expectation.was
disappointed, is well known
now agrees that the electoral college is- a
useless compliCation of our political system
—a sort of hfth wheel to the State . Coach—
while in many quarters grave apprehensions
are felt that it may sometime prove a source
of 'danger. Tne great defect, of it is felt to
bo that it deprives the people of that direct
(patrol of their own political affairs upon
which_the safety of the State depends. One
great danger of it is that it renders possible
the defeat of the candidate for whom a ma
jority of the people may have voted. As
we have already said, more than one Presi
dent has been elected who did not receive a
majority of the votes of the country at large;
and it is easy enough to see that the time
may come when the regular operation of the
present electoral system will defeat a man
who has received an absolute majority of
those votes. Even now a committee of the
upper house of Congress his under delibe
ration an amendment of ilite Constitution
calculated to sweep away this useless and
dangerous piece of statecraft. That the
country will heartily favor its destruction
there is no question.
And yet the very system which has been
found so cumbersome, so useless, and so
dangerous on a large scale is the one which
it is proposed to set up here in the county.
It is hard to see what argument can be ad
• anced for the one which is not equally as
strong when urged in support of the other.
Certain it is that they are both open to the
same strong objections—objections to which
we have yet to see even sylausible answer.
At a time when the whole country is desir
of establishing a Literal " Crawford
County System" in electing the Preside ,
lit would seem hot a little queer to see ny
portion of the people voluntarily retur ing
to the old electoral system in selecting can
didates. 1 .
In the table which we published last week
We pointed out the gross inequalities of the
proposed delegate plan—inequalities which
are inseparable from any such plan. We
ask those of our readers who did not observe
that table Carefully to take another look at
it, and to vote for that system which they
believe to be the fairest.
But however their opinions, their inte
rests, or their fegings may incline them, we
hope all Republicans will vote upon this
I question. Don't let judgment be taken
t , against you by default, whatever you do.
Lands Capes of Pennsylvania.
The topography of a country depends in
a great measure upon the nature and posi
tion of the underlying rocks. Thus it is
that the folding of the strata, in ages long
gone by, has rendered Pennsylvania classic
ground to the poet and the painter. Other
States may excel in wide and fertile plains,
but Pennsylvania surpasses them in the quiet
beauty of her landscapes. In her rock-rib
bed mountains, which have witnessed the
storms and heard the thunder of a million
years, we have a picture of the sublime in
nature. In her peaceful glens and long
withdrawing glades, where a thousand hap
py rills wander through the silent woods,
theie is a dreamy loveliness which we may
in vain seek to express. In her pastoral
valleys, where luxuriant orchards bend With
delicious fruitage, and the green grain whis
pers in the tidal wave of 'Simmer, there is
lowing of contented herds, and there

The Conneautville Courier says: "Mr.
John Cooper, of SuiPmerhill, informs us
that the currant woims, which have by their
ravages destroyed nearly - hit the currant
bushes in this section, have not for two sea
sons molested a row of bushes in his gar
den, around which red clover grows abun
dantly. Another row in the same garden,
kept cultivated, has been entirely stripped
by the worms, and the conclusion naturally
arrived at is that the pests do not like the
clover. If this simple remedy is found ef
fectual, we may expect in a few years to
again see the currant take its old place
among our small fruits."
In the State of New York that fragmen
tary political squad known as "Liberals"
propose to go jointly into a Convention with
the Democrats and divide the State ticket
between them. - But the Democrats are not ,
so green this year 'as last, and fancying that
they have got a better hand than the Libe
rals, propose to go It alone. The Tribune is
informed that before 'any further bargains
are made the Democrats want a census ta
ken at the polls of the "Liberal" vote, so
that they may know the exact political val
ue of that party.
There is a good deal in a name; but the

Others hove christened it the "Nameless,"
"INO Name," " Puou-seyiter " Hybrids,"
and "Mongrel" party; but' none of the
