Thk appointment of Stanley Mathews
to the Supreme bench meets with much
disfavor. On Monday last eight hun
dred firms' names were telegraphed to
the Judiciary committee of the Senate
who protested against Mathews' confir
mation. It Is doubtful If his nomina
tion will be confirmed.
The Senatorial dead lock was brok
en (or rather traded oil' for another) on
Wednesday last by both Grow and
Oliver withdrawing. On the ballot
previous to such action ten Democrats
voted for Wolf, and If another ballot
had been taken previous to adjournment
It is said still more would have gone
over to Wolf. Thursday, on the first
ballot the anil-Cameron men voted for
General Bayne, who received 02 votes,
and the Cameron men voted for General
Beaver who received 03 votes. The
Democrats cast SO votes for Wallace. A
Becond ballot was taken at which the
vote was Wallace 80, Beaver OS, Bayne
00, scattering i!7, these votes being di
vided between thirteen difltu cut "dark
The votes taken on Friday and Satur
day showed no change in the relative
strength of the parties, except that
enough of the scattering vote was cap
tured by the Beaver men to raise his
vote to 80. That al present seems to be
the highest point he can reach. The
indications are that the next Senator
has not yet been pushed to the front.
The feeling of the people seems to be
opposed to the idea of having any one
man select the candidate and say who
shall, and who shall not be voted for,
and for that reason It was unfortunate
for General Beaver that the caucus that
decided to accept him In place of Oliver
was held at Senator Cameron's house.
The Electoral Count.
According to previous arrangements
the Senate and House met in the Hall
of the House in joint convention ' on
Wednesday last, to count the electoral
vote. The Vice President opened each
package of returns and handed them to
the tellers who announced the vote. The
Vice President opened the packages In
alphabetical order, except the vote of
Georgia. When the lust State was
counted the tellers proceeded to foot up
the votes cast for President and Vice
Senator Thurman, teller from the Sen
ate, then said : " The tellers report that
the whole number of Electors appointed
to vote for President of the United
States, 8G9, of which a majority is 185.
If the votes of the Electors for the State
of Georgia are'eounted as cast on the
second "Wednesday of December, 1880,
being the eighth day of said month, the
result would be for James A. Garfield,
of the State of Ohio, for President of the
United States, 214 votes, and for Win
field S. Hancock, of the State of Penn
sylvania, for President of the United
States, 155 votes. If not counted the
result would be : For James A. Garfield
for President of the United States, 214
votes, and for Win field S. Hancock, 144
votes. In either event James A. Gar
field has reoeived a majority of the votes
of the whole number of Electors ap
pointed. Senator Thurman made a similar
statement relative to the vote for Vice
President; wherefore, said Vice Presl
. dent Wheeler, I do declare James A.
Garfield, of the State of Ohio, having
received a majority of the votes of the
whole number of electors appointed, is
duly elected President of the United
States for four years, commencing on
the 4th day of March, 1881, and I do
further declare Checter A. Arthur, of
the State of New York, having received
a majority of the votes of the whole
number of electors appointed, duly elect
ed Vice President of the United States
for four years, commencing on the 4th
of March, 1881.

A Terrible Crash.
Buffalo, February 8. Shortly after
0 o'clock this morning the arched roof
of the old New York Central and Hud
son Itlver Kail road Depot, on Exchange
Street, overweighted with the accumu
lated snow and weakened by the remov
al of ofllces which formerly contributed
greatly to its support, fell crashing to
the earth, burying a number of persons
and cars beneath a tangled mass of Iron,
wood, glass, snow and brick. The St.
Louis express train was three hours and
a half late and Its connecting train on
the Lake Shore, composed of four cars
and the sleeper, stood on the outer track
waiting for it. A Canuda Southern
train had Just hauled out of the depot
and only twenty minutes before the day
express on the Central had borne - east
ward a large load of living freight.
Switch engine No. 130, manned by
Frank Schoefur, engineer, was standing
on the middle track, ready to take Coro
ner Bcott to East Buffalo. Near the
other end of tne new depot was a train
of fiat cars. On the track Just outside
of the south wall was some old passen
The Lake Shore train was burled
from sight by roofing material. The
switch engine was broken and partly
dismantled. An unsightly gap wus
torn out of the wall of the beautiful
new waiting-room by the futul mass
which had crushed the life of Cup till n
Byrnes. The old cars which stood on
the track were all torn to pieces.
The work of overhauling the ruins
was immediately commenced by mem
bers of the Fire Department and the
employees of the railroad Company,
and the first two bodies were those of
Captain Byrnes and Harry Waters.
Shortly afterward the workmen found
the mangled body of William Wells clerk
of Car Inspector Howe of the Lake Shore
Railroad, and two other bodies were
The scene presented by the fallen
structure was a most ruinous one.
Large piles of bricks, iron girders and
heavy timbers lay piled in an indescriba
ble mass, while the ragged walls tottered
and fell in sections. The noise resem
bled that of an earthquake and was
heard a mile distant. The whole of the
old depot structure which was 450 feet
long, 20 feet in height, 100 feet wide
with arch 70 feet, Bave 60 feet of the
walls and the fourth arch, is a mass of
ruins.. It was bully in 1855-0. At no
other hour of the day or night could the
accident bave happened without a more
terrible loss of life, aa the depot at the
time was comparatively deserted. The
only train made up and waiting was the
Lake Shore to Erie, which was waiting
the coming of the New York Central
and the Erie from the East, both of
which were behind time. The Niagara
Falls train went out abont five minutes
before the crash, and the Eastern-bound
trains had been gone about an hour.
The fast mail which was due about the
time of the accident, was behind time,
and the heavy Pacific express, due at 8
o'clock, was three hours late.
Alive with a Broken Neck.
A French Canadian employed at Bum
ney's mill In Clarion county, fell from a
trestle one day last week, causing dlslo
location of the neck and the fracture of
several of the bones. The attending
physician set the bones In their proper
place, put the man in a sitting position,
and by means of a rope rigged over a
pully, with an adjustable weight at the
end, supports the head. The chances
for his recovery are said to be favorable.
It is said to be one of the most extraor
dinary cases ever recorded.
Walking on the Ocean.
Long Beanch, N. J., Feb. 7. The
ice extends more than a mile from the
shore, and to-day the extraordinary
scene was witnessed of people walking
out 200 yards to sea on Ice. About 10 A.
M., a strong northeasterly current
brought the large ice field with great
force against the outer end of the ocean
pier, breaking in twain several of the
iron columns. All the heavy materials
on the sea end of the pier were hastily
removed In the expectation of further

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
WasaiseTON, D. C, February 0, 1881
The ceremony of counting the electoral vole
takes place at noon to-day. Al that hour the
Senate proceeded by Captain Battett, bearing
the returns from the States, will march In
solemn procession from that chamber to the
House. Arriving there, the Senators will be
seated, the Vice President will take the chair,
the teals will be broken, and the vote counted
by tellers, and the result annouueed according
to the programme adopted by the two branches
soma days since.
As all questions In dispute were settled by
the adoption of this programme, the proceed
ing promises to be a very dull one. Neverthe
less, It will be an event that will attract a
crowd to Uis Capitol such at Is soldnm toon
beneath tht dome, and probably long before
the time appointed every seat in the galleries

The Ways and Meant Committee will report
favorably to the House a bill to repeal the
stamp tax on exports of tobacco i alto a bill
to repeal the lntornal revenue tax on matches,
proprietary medicines, perfumery, bank checks
and bank doposlts. t The amendment to the
vinegar bill, which provides that the Govern
ment shall pay the expentct of the Internal
revenue store-keepers required by the bill to be
placed in the vinegar factories, end that the
manufacturers shall pay to too Government
fifty cents upon each barrel of vinegar manu
factured, and will alto be reported favorably
to the Home.
The Senate Committee on education and
labor seem determined not to allow the passage

indoflnatuly. Be It laid to the credit or Bon a tor
Bruce that he entorcd hit dissent to it's post
