, extent show the feeling with which the
( people regard tho Cincinnati movement,
Its platform, and Its candidate.
Is this movement thu beginning of a

I The I'cnnsylvnnin Dcmocrncy.
Tho Democracy of Pennsylvania Imve
3ono well In nominating Senator Hucka
Lkw for Governor. Ho Is one of their
' ablest nnd purest statesmen ft man of
principle and conscience. Ho has ferved
(, with great credit in tho United States
Fcnate, nnd wc nro confident that his elec
llon as Governor will In every way bo
t beneflelnl to the peoplo of Pennsylvania.
' The nomination of Mr. Uuckaujw Is also
of great Importance ns an element In tho
movement for nntlounl reform. Wo have
no doubt thnt ho will be zealously sup
ports! by nil thn J.lhe.nil IlepuljUcans of.
the State, and that the same forces which
will combine 'fo elect' HoiiacK GitEEUtv
President will rally around llucicAi.r.wand
mako his ti lumph certnlu In Outober. As
tho H'orld correspondent at Heading ex
presses It, " tho McCLunn wing of tho
' ltepubllcan party wanted Bitckalf.w nom
inated, stating that they would give him
t tnoro Hepublicnn votes thou any other
I, Democratio enndidnte." No doubt this
correspondent tells tho exact truth. The
J Democrats of Pennsylvania may hencc-
f. forth bo counted on as certain to bear their
i part in the great union of honest men of
J1 nil parties for tho reform of tho Federal
Government, tho pacillcntlon of the coun
try, ami the restoration of the Constitu
tion, laws, and tho civil authorlly of tho
nation lo their rightful suptcmaey.

Hall on Thur.-duy evening acted with good
H jtiilgmeut In not hastening to make a
nomination for l'rolik'iit and In referring

ttu?t that tho free traders will malulatn
this judicious line of conduct to thecml.
"r" " ' " unaHiiiiiMTii7, m vnaonufca 10 iimur-
nate a Pildcntlal ticket of their own.
,, In the llrst place the free traders are no
mora unanimous than tho other parties.
A considerable number of them, after very
IB mature consideration, have enlUted under
tho Cincinnati ting, and it is very doubtful
whether they could be bt ought back by
i any appeal that might now be addressed
to them In behalf of a new candidate.
Tl'erO Is nUo a large body of elllcus whoe
sympathies Incline to tho free-trade cause
1 who regaitl tho contest to bo decided In
Km ember ns involving Imties far more
momentous mid vital than tarKTs and
i taxes. In the opinion of these citizens this
election Is to determluo whether we shall
continue to enjoy tho forms of lepublieuu
liberty under the present Constitution ot
tho country i whet her, indeed, tho peoplo
will hereafter be allowed to decide upon
puch n ipiesllou us free trade or not. The
minds of these men nro deeply excited
upon tills Mihjcct, ninl it would be impos
flblo to draw them initio to consider the
meiltsot fiee trade or of tho candidates
who might bo cho'cn to represent It. Tims
tliofrec-trnilo parly, It it ehould now eu
pngi) lu a l'icsiilmitliil enmpnlgu ot its own,
will enter upon tho work under serious
eiiibarrasr-ment. It will havo to light the
biittlowith half of its teal force engaged
C elsewhere, and In tho event of defeat will
he mo rso olf (linn If it had not entered
upon tho struggle at nil.
The free traders should also remember
thnt It Is already too late lu the season to
(irgaiilea party for a Presidential elee
tion, Such n work viulres time mid care
fill preparation. It must be carried out In
xreat detail lu ovorv townnhlu. ward, uud
dlstilet, or tho voters will not bo brought to
tho polls and the movement will be a
failure. If the free traders should think
best to form themselves Into n distinct po
litical purly,wllh (helrcnndldatesforevery
important office, they should set nboul tho
labor of organizing their adherents Imme
diately nfter tho election of November.
Then there will bo a lull In polities, and
tho work can bo set on font and prosecuted
with advantage. Hut It would bo vain to
attempt it now with any hopo of bringing
tho Machinery to u slate ot eillcleiioy be
fore tho election.
Tho free traders nro men of principle)'
their system Is based upon study and re
Heel Ion ; their doctrines uro supported by
rational nrgumcnt, nnd nro Inspired by n
strong moral feeling. Thus they merit re
spect even from thoso who entertain dif
ferent theories; nnd It seems to us greatly
to bo desired, lu the Interest of ptibllo pro
gress, that ii body of men so Intelligent, so
sincere, so resoluto lu their views, should
not now compromise their cause by un
timely or Injudicious political notion.
Paying for Testimony I.iko Master
On tho recent Navy Department Investi
gation nt Washington two of the most Im
portant witnesses In behalf of tho Secre
tary wero Pay Inspector A. W. ltussELb of
tho Philadelphia Navy Yard, nnd Commo
dore Auuustl'3 L. Case, Chief of tho Bu
reau of Ordnance. All that they could
tell to the ndvnntngo of tho accused they
told freely nnd with ovldent gratification,
while their muster smiled u ruddy ap
proval; but whenever auy effort was made
to extort from them tho facts within their
knowledge whluh would have been less
pleasing to that master, they clung, like
barnacles, to silence.
Anil now they havo their reward. This
week their mimes appear prominently
upon tho list of promotions. IIurseix. la
nominated for ndvnneeinent threo num
bers ou tho roll, over tho heads of honora
ble nnd deserving men, all of whom hnvo
been In tho service longer thnn ho has;
and Cake Is confirmed by tho Senate as a
ltear-Admlral ou tho nctlvo list, so that
the nation now has at least one licet ofllcer
who believes that an lion ship Is ordnance,
and describes a transaction as "usual"
which has occurred but once In the whole
history of tho Navy Department.
Hut the man In this nfTnlr has merely
followed tho example of his master, tho
President, who introduced the principle of
bestowing public olliees In return for per
sonal and private fuvors when ho original
ly organized his Cabinet, since which the
system thus initiated has extended to nil
departments of tho Government. How
long the naval service is likely a to consist
of eilleleiit nnd honest olllcers under such i
a system tho people can judge.
Will there lie u Democratic Holt t
As It becomes moro and ntoro probable
will be nomluatcd for President and Vice
President by the Democratio National Con
vention at Baltimore, the possibility that
those Democrats who will bo dls?atlsllexl
with such n nomination mny bolt and set
up a ticket for themselves becomes moro
and more Interesting.
The Chicago 77 mat, one of the ablest of the
few prominent Democratic: Journals which
advocate a new ticket, alarms that" with
probably fifty per cent, of the Democracy In
the Northern States, and peihnps not any
less proportion In the South," some other
candidate than the Philosopher of Cliuppn
ipia Is a necessity. That Is to say, unless
wn misunderstand tho proposition, that If
IIoiiace Giieelev Is nominated nt Balti
more a largo portion of the Democratic
party, led by tho Times, will revolt and
nominate n third condldato.
Who this third candidate will bo Is no
whero stated. Neither tho Clileago Tmw
nor tho H'orld nor the Philadelphia Auc
distinctly proposes nny prominent Demo
crat for this position; and yethownbjurd
It would bo for these straight-out Demo
crats to rebel against tho nomination of
lloiixfr ehirtyjrr find to :'.t i:p nnotlwr
Ucpubllctin as their candidate. If they nro
going to insist upon n straight Democratic
nomination, they ought nt least to mako
up their ticket out of straight Democrats.
Well, wo oro bound to admit that the
conflict rages with a great deal of anima
tion, nnd that tho Chicago Times and the
H'orld ate making a very active war upon
tho Cliielnnntl nominations. Their antago
nists In the Democratic party reply to them,
also with equal vigor, accusing them of
being sold out to Guant. Thnt nccusntlon
we nro not ready to admit; but It Is cer
tain that tho H'orW and tho Times are do
ing Giiast a service which none of his pro
fessed organs can possibly render.
We do not wish to do injustice to nny
one, nnd our hopo is that this campaign
will, as far as possible, bo curried on with
good nature. But it would really bo in
teresting to know whether tho Chicago
Timet and the H'orld mean to support tho
ticket of tho Hiiltimoro Convention or not.
And If the contest is confined to Giieelev
and Ghant, which will they prefer?
Some recent pioeeedings lu the London

extravagant hahits of llrlllsh o dicers form the
great xb'Uulu to tlio aiu-ccai of tho army m

MKI.U Tho purchase of commissions has been
abolished In tho army, with thu lutcutluuof

oftloeis gnzetted without purchase havo been
bullied, and treated In so oierbearlr.ga manner
by tho purchoso men that tho War Ofllco has
been forced to talx cogn.sancc of tho matter.
Very different is tint practlco In tho Prussian
sen leo. There, every man for himself Is tho
Mile, where palng for anything Is concerned ;
and all espouses that must bo Incurred In com
mon by officer of all ranks have been eurofully
reduced to a minimum, so that no poor man can
have a pretext for saying to tils comrade, thnt
they lead him Into outlay which ho cannot afford.
X correspondent of tlm Loudon JTclWiiph idti
an account of the mess 11 To of tho Thirty-fifth
Itcsorvo battalion, stationed at llerlln, which Is
stronger In officers than a Ilrltlsh lino battalion
Is In men, comprising nearly eight hundred com
missioned officers, representing every division
of tho tipper and mlddlo social classes, tho no
bility included. And jet they do tint possess a
club-house, or even a mess-room of their own,
but meet to sup or dlue together at hotels or
restaurants. In Ilnglaml the richer officers of a
regiment sometimes nay moro than their sharo
of tlio regimental expenses; but this would
novcr be permitted In the Prussian service, ami
ns the large majority ot ollkcrs aro really poor,
tho small, wealthy minority aro kept within
bounds and forced to bo economical whether
they llko It or not. liven the present of n few
cases ot champagno by tho wealthier officers to
a mess would be deemed an Insult. Thoso who
did not feel themselves rich enough to buy
champagno would feet offended that It should
bo offered them as a gift, nnd would refuse to
drink It. This shows a commendablo prldo very
different from tho pretentiousness which char

Tho story published in tho Xcio York
Timr of forty-ono vessels of tho Newfoundland
sealing fleet being destroyed, with a loss of three
thousand lives, proves to bo a hoax, founded,
probably, on tho actual loss ot tho brig Hunts
man and several other vessels. It Is likely, how
ever, that lu time wc shall bear of great suffer
ing and considerable loss among tho fishermen
engaged In scaling. Tito season has been very
stormy, with tremendous easterly winds, and
tho vessels engaged In tho fisher)', which usual
ly oro at homo by tho middle of March, havo
been lato In returning. Thero nro about flvo
hundred vessels cngagod In tlio seal Oakeries
under Newfoundland direction, mostly bark or
shlp-rlggcd steamers and small brlgantlncs nnd
brigs. 'J'heso am usually crowded, the smallest
craft earning from twenty to fifty men, and the
Mc-nora earning crcvvi numbering from one

their return vojago they nro frequently over
loaded. Tho steamers cmpto) cd In these fisher
ies are all first-class boats, Cltdo built, and Im
mensely strong. They cost from i'11,000 to XV
XO sterling each. Many Ungllsh and Scotch mer
chants who havo Invested their money lu theso
fisheries have mado great profits, as tho large
vessels sometimes bring home twenty thousand
seal skins, which sell readily at from flvo to
seven shillings each. Tho Qshlng grounds aro
about two hundred miles from Newfoundland.
This year great fields of Ico have boon driven
upon tho Newfoundland shores, bringing with
them such numbers of Heals that tho homo p(
illation, men, women, and children, were ablo
to kill hundreds of them. Tho great danger
which the seal fishermen encounter on their
voyages Is that of being crushed In moving
fields of Ico.
Pome of the Kngllshmctllc.il men nppear
to bclleio that there aro bovcrages consumed by
tlio laboring poor nearly as Injurious to their
health as thoso which enmo under the general
namo of alcohollo drinks. Dr. Am.llKii: of
North Staffordshire, one of the Pottery Inspec
tors acting under tho Homo Office, writes that
thero Is a lamentable amount of sickness among
tho women of the working class in the pottery
districts, consequent upon tho abuse of tea.
These women mako it a principal article of diet,
and drink it, usually without milk or sugar,
several times a day. At most meals bread and
butter Is tho only solid accompaniment. To
this excessive tea drinking Is ascribed a general
deterioration cf health among tho working
classes, and u lowered vitality In the rising
gvnvjblloii. ' " "
Present iipp'eiuuutea lndkVltO fhat the
farmer of Chappaqua will this year bo entirely
successful In turning out a very numerous crop
of great beets,
It Is nstonlshlug to observe what absurd
notions sometltiios gain general acceptance.
Thero Is a widespread belief existing In many
parts of the country, especially tho West and tho
Southwest, that clerical gentlemen of tho Meth
odist persuasion havo a remarkable, fondness for
chickens, and particularly for fowls of tho yellow-legged
variety. How this Impression first
gained ground It would bo difficult to toll; but
there Is no doubt that It oxlsts. In many sec
tions of tho West Methodist clergymen are popu
larly denominated "chicken-eaters," Instead of
mlnlJters, as they would be called In New Eng
land. In a Western Legislature a member from
tho backwoods onco saved from defeat a bill
offering a bounty for fox scalps by an adroit allu
sion to tho popular prejudice on this subject.
Ho begged tho Legislature not to deprive his
constituents of tho privileges of tho gospel min
istry by voting down tlio fox-scalp bill. His
logic was, that If tho bill was defeated Ills sec
tion of the country would ho overrun with foxes,
and If tho foxes wero permitted to run at will
It would ho Impossible to raise auy chickens, Ho
said his constituents wero poor, and depemlod
for gospel privileges on the ministrations of tho
.fjitUudlsUfJ.re.Ult..l!7''.lJjt'.CS- ojil everybody
Know that tlieywouhlii't iro nht.ro Ucy ,-rmhl
not get chickens. This was unquestionably an
outrageous slander on a faithful and self-denying
class of men; but It hit tho mark, and tho
bill was saved. When tho most desirable placo
of mooting for tho next General Conference of
tho Methodist Church was being coiiiddercd In
Ilrooklyn tho other day, dolegatos from different
cities urged tho claims of their respective locall
ties with great earnostnes, n brother from Hal
tlmore extolling tho soft-sholl crabs for whluh
that city Is famous; another, from Kentucky,
hinting at blue grass butter and beefsteaks, and
another, from Cincinnati, making tempting
reference to tho strawberrlos and cream ot
Ohio, At last a delegate said that thero was no
placo In the country whero thoy had so many
yellow-legged chickens as In Ft. Louis, and St.
Louis was at onco selected ns tho placo of moot
ing by an overwhelming vuto. Without prejudlco
to St. Louis, wo aro Inclined to foar that this de
cision ot tlio Conferenco will havo a tendency to
strengthen tho absurd but popular prejudice
respecting tho Methodist clergy and chickens of
the )clIow-lcgged kind.
We lenni from the Xcw Vork Tlmen that
tho Postmaster at l'ulton, New York, reports
that "the circulation of tho M'rcMu TrlMme ban
fallen off over ono hundred per cent." This
means, of course, that whero ono hundred per

now stopped It. Tho statement of such a post

gono from that quiet llttlotonn without seeing
the last resting placo ot tho murdered Colonel,
who was so well known and loved by the people
thero who saw him when ho was a curly-headed
youngster of threo years, and where, as ho fre
quently said In utter years, ho had spent many
of his happiest moments, where ho pitched
pennies, played marbles, and ran away from
school. Ills old friends never tire of relating
anecdotes ot his life, how he worked with them
and amusod them, and how his ambition, which
they then thought akin to madness, had carried
him far abovo thorn lu wealth and fume.
On Wednesday morning Mrs. Col. Geo. W.
Hooker, Capt. flus Fuller, tlio well-known ex
press agent, and n captain lu tho Ninth Itegl
mcnt, Georgo Hardin, who was n constant com
panion of Flsk, and a Sun reporter, went to
Hrattteboro, whoro tho widow of tho lato Col
onel had arrived the day beforo from lloston
and taken rooms In tho Hovcro House. In
boyhood Cot. Flsk was an employee In this hotel,
blacking boots, carrying coal, and doing other
chores, His natural politeness and attcntlvcness
endeared him to the guests and tho town's peo
ple, and although dining his wonderful enreer
much Jealousy was exhibited bv a few of thoso
who were his youthful companions, yet all loved
nnd admired film.
Lleuts. J. it. Wood and Oonrgo A. Husscy,
who, with Capt. Fuller, comprised n delegation
from the Ninth Heglmcnt, arrived In the even
ing from New York to Join In decorating tho
grnvo of theh lamented commander.
TIIL AltltlVAl II V Till COLONEL'S l ATHLIt AND
The father and stepmother of the late Col.
Vlsk drove fp in North Adams and arrived at the
hotel late In the evening. Mr. Klsk Is a man nf
conimnndlii.' appearance, halo anil hearty, but
with a troubled countenance. Ho Is In much
bettor health than he has been for years, but has
hardly recovered from the shock of the tragedy.
Ills wife Is a very Intelligent woman. Although
advanced lu jours, she still retains the vigor of
youth, and Is exceedingly fond of nut-door exer
cise. The dlstanco travelled lu their light wagon
was nearly sixty miles, yet it apparently had no
effect on them.
Mrs. risk, widow of tho Colonel, still resides
In her magnificent mansion In Hoston, hut pais
frequent visits to Hrattlohorn. This tlmo sho
was accompanied by Miss Fanny llcrrod and
Wm. I'arkutiui, Jr. Her coachman and John
Marshall, formerly tho body servant of Flsk,
were also with her. Mrs. Flsk was attired in
deep mourning, and woro no iowolry whatever.
Shu remained In her room In the hotel, and was
visited by many of her friends. Her unlet, lady
like demeanor has won her hosts of friends, nnd
they know that there could be no greater mis
take than tn Imagine her to bo ono uf tho mere
buttcrlllcs of society.
Thoso who had good opportunities of knowing;
Mrs. Flsk nnd her husband biv that notwith
standing his possible Imprudence, she was
nevor neglected, but dearly loved and cared
for by him. Mrs. Vlsk spooks of her
married life with pleasure, and tells of tho
Colonel's kindnesses with deep feeling. Ills

Mrs. Flsk's liberality Is unbounded, and hun
dreds are under very' great obligations tu her. It

Tilt: o. A. n.'s rntrAnATiONS.
Thursday being recognized throughout tho
country as Decoration Day, the graves of the
soldiers In tlio cemetery of Hratlleboro were not
forgotten by the villagers. In connection with
tho celebration, which was under the auspices
of tho Orand Army of tho Iteptibllc, Mrs. Flsk
proposed lo decorate her husband's frrarve, and
no expenio was spared to havo tho sacred spot
beautified. Thursday monilnff dawned beauti
fully, and hundreds flocked to tho town to wit
ness the display, the stores and buildings on the
principal streets being festooned with flags and
flowers. Tho commltteo having charge of the
parade thought It best to defer the exercises un
til late In thu afternoon, un account of the heat.
This proved to be a very unwlso resolution, and
much comment was Indulged In, as many of
those who wero to form tho procession had been
used all the lives tn outdoor work In the dead of
w Inter or 'hrough the scorching summer months.
At an early hour the lrg boxes of flowers for
the Colonel's grave wero token to the cometory,
nnd nearly all of the artistic work was placed in
position. At threo o'clock In tho afternoon
there was a heavy shower, and the prospect of a
parado waa a gloomy ono. Shortly niter four
o'clock, however, while It was still raining, tho
procession was formed by II. K. Tavlor, the
Marshal. Tim Hrattlelroro Cornet Hand was at
tho head, and then followed Heauseant Com

C. A. Miles, then I'nst Sedgwick, No, 8, (1. A. It.,

of which was occupied by Mrs. James Klsk, Jr.,
Mrs. Col. Hooker, Mrs. Asn H. Sanderson, and
tho Bon reporter. The procession marched
through the main street, tho hand playing the
" Dead March In Saul," past the ltevero House
and tho Hrattteboro Hotel, and up tho hill to
the cemetery'. Notwithstanding tho rain, hun
dreds without umbrellas and having no means
of shelter followed the procession.
COL. FISH'S LAST HESTINO TL.ICE.
Tasking through the main entranco down the
narrow drive the gram of Col, Flsk was reached.
The lot Is equal In slje to four of the others, and
Is the finest spot lu the cemetery. Ills on the
i rest of the hill In a most romantic region, over
looking the beautiful valley of the Connecticut,
winding under the shadow of tho Wantastlquct
Mrs. Flsk bos had tho lot beautifully laid out
and ornamented. At each corner are large
rustle chairs, and In the centre Is the grave,
abovo which Is a plain Marble slab bearing the
name, date of birth, and death uf Col. I'isk.
Tho tlower work was perhaps the finest ever
executed In this count! y. nnd was dono piln
tipally from designs by Mrs. Flsk. Completely
covering tho slab was a floral temple, six foet lu
length, three feet In width, nnd four feet high,
composed of the choicest whlto flowers, tube,
roses, lilies of tho vnlley, splrlas, dutzla-s, white
carnations, and others, nnd festooned with
stullax. On the apex wus a beautiful crown.
TUB OdKUINll OF TIIK NINTH.
In front of the temple was tho floral offering
of the Ninth Heglmeiit- a Maltese cross, five
feet In height, with the llguro "H" lu tho centre,
composed of red, white, nnd cllow roses. John

ot John Marshall, tho faithful servant of Col,
Flsk, who secured some of the choicest 11 lifts us
his mite toward the magnificent decoration. In
ennauqurnco of the rain 11 was Impokible for
the ladles to leevn the carriage, nnd they had
to be content to gaze upon tho grave which Is
now so beautiful. There were prnhjhl) ;l.uj
worth of flowers distributed around the grave.
VOl'THH I. Ml'.MOIIDri.
As Mrs. Flsk saw the servant John place tho
lilies near the grave, her huge, beautiful eyes
tilled with tears, uud turning lo I lie bu.n re
porter, she said ;
" How I wish that James and I hid neter left
Itrattlcboro'. Here we vveiu in uur vouth, happy
anil content, but now -"
Overcome with emotion, she sank back In the
carriage, Mrs. Hooker and Mrs. Niiulerimi also
being much alfei ted. Old and vooug crowded
around the carriage to catch a glimpse of thu
occiitianti.. As Mrs, Flsk's eve caught th.it of
