The Republican Senatorial Confer ence will be held at Patterson on Thurs day the 10th Inst. Each county In the district has nominated a candidate Charles II. Smiley, Esq., being the can. didate named by this county. TttK Early oottnty, Ga., 2few$ hopes -that no man in that county will say or do anything during this campaign that will in the least disturb the kind feelings that ex. ist between neighbors. The Newt says : " It will require an effort to keep down the devil, but it will pay to do so." Elections of Last Week. Elections were held last week In Ar kansas and Vermont. . The returns from a number of counties In Arkansas Indicate the election of Churchill demoorat for governor, over Parks, greenback by a majority ranging between 40,000 and 60,000. From re turns received and as estimated by those best Informed, It is believed that the proposed constitutional amendment re pudiating certain state bonds will fail to receive a majority on all the votes cast as required by the constitution to insure its adoption. In Vermont the republicans make considerable gains over the vote of 1870, and elect the governor by 25,000 major ity, and all the members of Congress. The State Senate will be entirely lie publican with one exception. In Trouble From Kindness. Sheriff Hoffman of Butler, Pa., was arrested for "misdemeanor In office in permitting James Borland and Edward McTiernan to run at large unlawfully." Upon oath of Samuel Ilea,, Borland and McTiernan were both convicted of crimes and sentenced to pay a fine and costs, and were discharged under the Insolvent Laws after being in prison ninety days. McTiernan was 05 years of age, and the allegation is that the Sheriff did not look up the old man in a cell, but allowed him to sleep in private apartments and to be outside of the Jail. The Sheriffs reason for this treatment was that it would be inhuman to incar cerate so old a man in the close confines of an iron cell, and would probably re sult in his death. Borland is also an old man, and the allegation is that the Sheriff allowed him to attend church on several occasions. Both men were sub sequently discharged by the Court. On a writ of habeas corpus the Sheriff was discharged, and the prosecutor was di rected to pay the costs. Politics was at the bottom of the trouble. THE WRECKED STEAMER VERA CRUZ. A St. Augusta, Fla., special of the 3rd Inst., to this morning's Herald says : The main part of the ill-fated steamer was beached on the Island some twelve miles from the city, near Matanzas, and her freight strewed the beach the entire length of, the Island, and also on the north beach (main land) for several miles. The freight was very valuable, consisting in the main of provisions, dry-goods, furniture, etc, and it came ashore in great quantities. The pilots of St. Augustine, of which there are five, were the first to discover that a wreck had occurred, and what was of more consequence to them, the vast amount of freight already beached and more coming. They at once formed themselves into a Joint stock company for the time and went for that freight with a vim, Monday and Tuesday, Au gust 80 and 81. , They kept the matter of the wreck a profound secret, and it was a secret well kept, for it was not until the night of 81st of August that the news reached the city. In the meantime our industri ous pilots had worked both day and night like beavers having entire pos session of both beach and cargo, they managed to have many a goodly pile stored up at different points of the beach, worth thousands of dollars. Several trunks belonging to the ill fated passengers came ashore in good order, only to be broken open and rifled. One, evidently belonging to a lady of wealth, for it was filled with costly silk dresses and clothing of the finest order, and laces worth many a dollar 1 a gold watch and chain, and two valuable bracelets were found in the trunk. In another trunk a large pocket book well filled with bills was found by the fortu nate pilots. In fact, they had a bonanza, and they worked it for all it was worth, having gold watches, diamonds, well-filled wal lets, elaborate clothing and many tons of valuable freight as their reward. In deed, the latter was In such vast propor tions that teams were employed for sev eral days in hauling their find, and large lighters were loaded with produce. As before stated, the secret was faith fully kept Monday and Tuesday, but when the matter leaked out late on Tues day night the whole city was alive with excitement. Everybody that had a boat or could borrow one, or press one into service, hied away to the beach. Nor was this wrecking fever confined to the MInorcan, or negro, but business men and clerks for the time turned wrecker, and the beach was thronged with anxious hunters for the cast up treasures of the sea; notwithstanding the pilots had the cream of the find, and only the gteftnlngs remained, yet enough was gathered to repay them all richly, and enable the major part of the popu lation to dispense with hog, millet and hominy, and live on the succulent ham, preserves, canned goods, and wash it down with either wine or ale. An Old Adage Knocked to Pieces. It is a common saying that lightning never strikes twice in the same place," but it Is refuted by the following inci dent, related by the Clearfield Journal: " In June last, a post on the farm of L. D. Weld, in Beccaria township, was struck by lightning and badly splinter ed, and the rails resting upon it were mashed into pieces. The fence was re paired, but scarcely had this been done until, during the month of July, the same post was again struck and the rails shivered to atoms. Again the fence was repaired by the planting of a new post, and again during the month of August the lightning struck and demol ished the new post and fence adjacent thereto. At last accounts the fence was again in a perfect condition, but there Is no likelihood of anybody sitting on that post to watch the progress of a thunder storm. The lightning is probably at tracted by the outcropping of some min eral substance." Solving a Difficulty. A young man and his girl arrived at Chautauqua at a late hour in the even ing, and after careful and anxious search the only accommodations to be secured were found to be one small room in a cottage. Then was presented a dilem ma. To occupy that room together would be a manifest violation of the proprieties of life; to return home was impossible the last boat had left. For either of them to sit up and pace the grounds the long night through, or occupy the chilly canvas cot in the breezy amphitheatre, was an alternative not to be thought of. Qenius solved the problem. A minister was sought out a very easy task at Fair Point and in a few minutes a short ceremony was said ; the twain were husband and wife ; John Backwoods and his bride occupied the little room in the cottage together, aud the proprieties were pre served intact. A Rascally Fellow. A young woman about eighteen years of age, neatly dressed and of prepossess ing appearance while walking along a Btreet in Pittsburg on last Sunday night, was brutally assaulted by a young ruf fian, who sprang upon her from a crowd on a corner as she approached, and struck her three times in the face with a hand-billy. The poor girl screamed and then fell insensible to the pavement. A crowd collected speedily, and the injured girl was carried into a house and a dpo tor summoned, who found that her nose was broken, her Jaw shattered and sev eral teeth knocked out. The fiendish assailant escaped, but the police think they know him, and hope soon to have him in their grasp. No cause is assign ed for the dastardly deed. If caught, that vlllian should be sent to the peni tentiary for not less than ten years. Get Out Your Furs. Furs will be extremely fashionable next winter, and more fancy furs will be used than ever before The manufac turers are making np finer class of fur lined garments, and these, it Is said, take the place of seal garments, mainly in consequence of the very high price of the latter. Black dyed lynx and fox, silvered hare and fox, silvered clipped coney and brown and black dyed beaver, will be largely used. Chinchilla will be more costly this season than last, on account of the prevailing war in South America. Killed by a Falling Ramrod. A singular and fatal accident occurred near Fremont, Mahaska county, Iowa, a few days ago. Two boys were amus ing themselves by throwing a heavy ramrod into the air as high as they could, until finally one of the boys, a ten-year-old son of Jacob Miller, met his death by the fatal missile descending with the veloolty of a bullet and pene trating entirely through his head, pro duclng almost instant death. A Sad Aeoldent, Friday afternoon a sad accident oc curred in Huntingdon resulting in the death of James Lytle, a seven-year old son of II. M. Lytle, of that place. A number of men were trying the capaci ty of several steam engines. As one of them belonged to the town was being pulled along the street by a number of men, including Mr. Lytle, that gentle man's son ran out to catch hold of the rope near his father. Just as he was about to grasp it he fell and before the ponderous machine could be checked the front wheel passed over the child's breast and the hind wheel over his legs. The poor child was picked up and, ten derly cared, for, but lived only about fifteen minutes, Treasure Trove. The publication of the article in this department last week relating to the burying of a large sum of money some where in the vicinity of Hanover by a trooper during the passage of Kllpat rick's calvary division in June, 1803,and the search being made for it by various parties, has elicited the fact from respon sible parties, that some years since, a well-to-do farmer residing in Conowago township, Adams county, near McSher rystown, about two miles northwest of this place discovered buried on his prem ises a large sum of money, the exact amount of which could never be defin itely ascertained. Whether this was the Identical money burled by the soldier referred to, is a matter of conjec ture; but sufficient was learned to know that it was quite a large sum, enabling the lucky finder to pay off a number of mortgages and Judgments resting against him, and making considerable addition to his farm. Many parties in the vicinity where this party resides, are fully cognizant of the fact of this discovery of the money, and the uses to which it was put, as indicated. Specta tor. A Severe Storm. Long Branch, September 9. The storm raging here to-day Is the severest September gale since 1864. At 8 P.M., the wind was blowing sixty miles an hour.

You can well Imagine she was rather scared by what occurred. She suddenly felt a peculiar warmth on her left cheek, and turning her head to ascer tain the cause, saw a large Durham bull holding his nose close to her head.

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER. Washihqtok, D. C, September 8, 1880. A friend of Senator Thurman, who lately lea him, told your correspondent that the Sen ator refused to express any opinion as to the prospect in Ohio this fall. Bat last night a letter from the Senator to another Washington friend was shown, In which a prophecy of Democratic victory in the State in October was made. While one of the beet lawyers in the country, the Senator is not, nor ever can be a skillful politician. His opinion abont Ohio, whether unfavorable to the Democracy, as in the case first mentioned above, or favorable, as expressed in his letter Is of little account. There are a hnndred Democrats in Ohio who have more knowledge of the political ma chine's work than Thurman has. Many exaggerated stories are told of "as sessments" upon office holders here. More classes are probably applied to daring this year than ever before, but that seems to be only fair if we once concede the propriety of col lecting money from office holders. Certain local organizations here, however, have under taken to collect money for the good of the Republican party at large, and that attempt Is properly and generally condemned. All stories of removal from position because of refusal to pay, may safely be set down as fabrications. There are dismissals from office here every day in the year sometimes from Inefficiency or Inattention to duty, and tome limes a particular class of work Is exhausted, or for other reasons but there Is no well authenticated case of "bulldozing" under this administration. The result of the Arkansas election created but little comment. It was expected, of course, that the State would give a huge Democratic majority, and the expectation has been real ized. Nor Is there much interest centered In the Vermont election of yesterday. The Re publicans look for a majority of 85,000, and a vote of about 68,000. The principal feature of the Arkansas result Is the victory of the debt paying faction ovor the repudatlonists. The fight was against the so called Flshback amendment. It was proposed by this to amend the State Constitution so as to prohibit the Legislature from making any provision for interest or principle of certain State improve-'' ment bonds. At the Democratic headquarters in this city they are exchanging congratula tions over the position taken by Arkansas. Zenas F. Wllber, who resigned the position of examiner of Interferences In the United Bates Patent Office to attend to the Patent business of Edison, the inventor, is In the city, lie says that there Is now being put up in the wood Sround Menlo Park a number of lamps, and at an early day experiments will bs made which will demonstrate fully the success of the Edison system of electrla lights. The great difficulty, which Is now being overcome, Is tt get an engine suited for the purpose. Such engines are row being built, and when com pleted, Mr. Wllber says, will be the last link necessary to complete in detail the Edleon theory. Without such an engine Mr. Wllber says that to light Pennsylvania avenue with electricity It would be necessary to lay a, sheathing of copper along the entire surface.
