By the death of Si nator Connell. of
I'liil-idi S-iliia, a vacancy bag been created
in the-Klate Si-uate. If a successor be
not elected r-eftire tbe mating of the
next Legislature, the Senate will be a
tie. standing: 16 llepublicane to 16 Dem
ncrats. In eases ol vacancies bv death
it becomes the duty of the Speaker of
the Senate, as noon as he is informed of
such vacancy, to iasuK his writ for a spe
cial election to fill such vacancy.
Speaker White, in the case of Senator
stt s denth, last year, issued his writ of
ti.cli'.u which rest. lied iu the election
of I echcrt bcfuts tbe lime for the meet
injr of the legislature. This is a Re
publican pieceduut, and it is earnestly
booed that the present Democratic Speak
er. Speaker Rroadbead, will pursue the
sain ccmr-t iu ttiist case, and uot wait fir
the meeting i.f the Legislature. The
election iuxt h- held wiihin thirty days
r.f. r the Speaker has Iwn notified of the
the vacancy. We trust that Speaker
Jiniu'lieurl is not so partial a partisan as
some Ixlieve, that he will take no notice
of the death of ;etiator Couuell though
ho be informed of it by an official of the
judi'.-i.il district in which Mr Counall did
m-icio until the meeting of the Legisla
ture Fhould he, however, do so, it
could only be for the purpose of delay
ing the organization of the Senate, and
to keep the offices of that body in the,
hands of his party nearly a month longer,
t-'nih d course would impose a responsi
bility upon the. Democracy that it cannot
cany and would only sink it deeper uu
der public condemnation. ..
Iu the ejent of Speaker Broad head
failing to discharge bis duty, it bas been
suggested that Governor Geary, on being
officially informed by the Prolhonotary
f I'LiladdpLi.'i, ehould exercise his con-J
stituiion.tl jiowcr nui couveno the Legis
lature. " Once the Leginlatnre id con
vened, ' the llarrisburg Tcf'grajJi says,
" the Speaker of the Senate will have
no option in the matter of issuing bis
writ for a special election. The death of
Senator Connell and consequent vacancy
iu the Fourth district will be announced.
and section 20 of the Const it utisti of
Pennsylvania declares ; ' When vacan
cies happen in either llnnse, the speaker
i'"all issue writs of election to fill such
vjcancie.' Holding that tfie Seuate is
a pcipttnal body, we contend that it is
as much the duty of the Speaker to is
me a wtit of election sj-k in tbe case
under consideration, as it will be when
that bony is in actual session. But be
m iv possible find a pretext for refusing
to perform it which he cannot do if the
General Assembly is convened by a proc
Iamation of the Governor. '

the "overwhelming delrat'' of tbe Tm
ocrscy at tbe late election. t tbe . new
drpartwe." -ud denraneea it a a "stapi
overnight of the would-be party leaders."
Wbat a change baa been wrought in
that journal since June 28th, 1871 when
in a long editorial it andertook to explain
to its readers wbo were in favor cf stick
ing to the old landmarks, that there was
nothing in the ' ninth resolution '' that
any sound Democrat could not . endorse.
. aud that they should "recognise tbe biud
ing obligations of all tbe provisions of
the Constitution of the United States as
siitutionallr appointed ;" meaning, of
i - -
course, that they should avoid calling to
.e-1 m;ud nnpea,aIlt recollections ; should My
! nothing in favor of the extension of sla-
i very ; should not curse Lincoln for is-
Uiog the emancipation proclamation;
j say nothing about the constitutional
I amendments ; sh.mld not deny the negro
I the right to vote, or denounce the civil
rights bill. But, since all these would
not win, and the new departure proved an
utter failure, it now is in favor of going
back to the discussion of these same
issues, and thinks that this is the only
way to save the party from defeat. They
must charge the Republican party for
causing the war; shiiek " Constitution "
louder than ever ; declare the constitu
tional ameudmendments anconstutional
and void." as tbey did in New York, on
July 4th, 1868, when Seymour was nom
inated, and pitch headlong into the nig
ger. These were tbe old rallying cries
of the 1 democracy and in their opin
ion nothing else will win and siuce
their failure to secure a triumph by
a fruitless effort to deceive the- peo
pie by adopting a platform of party
resolutions which tbey now admit
was wrong, and which it only " fought
under because it was obliged to," it is in
favor of going back to old issues. Sucb
a vacillating course as this must awaken
the distrust of every honest voter It
shows bow little faith the party bas in
its leaders ; to what length tbe professed
organs of the party will go to secure its
success, and to what desperate measures
the party will resort iu order to secure
triumph, aud to what straits it bas been
1 his angnrs well for the Republicans
It shows that the councils of tbe Dem
ocracy are confused Their prestige is
gone. Despair of success has dampened
their ardor and lessened their seal ; and,
although some of the most faithful still
hug the delusive phantom, indulging the
thought that "something may yet turn
np." Their prospect of success is not
by any means encouraging.

entific men for toe - discovery of poison

report of tbe result of hie examination,
which was sent to tbe District Attorney.
From it it appears conclusively that
arsenic had been used,' and that the wo
man died from its effects. On the strength
of these facta Mr. Martin Good, nepbew
of the diseased wife, made information
last night, charging Emanuel Shaffner
with administering the poison: from the

place, on tbe 24th nit :
A fight baviug occurred in the Chinese
quarter. Officer Bildersou attempted to
arrest a Chinaman . for shooting another
He was resisted and he called on R ibt
Thompson, a citizen, to assist him Tbe
Chinese on both sides of the narrow
street opened fire on both of tli- m. Mr.
Thompson fell, shot through the breast,
and died immediately. Officer Btlderson
was shot through the shoulder, but suc
ceeded iu getting on horseback and
escaping. A Mexican boy, named Juan
Jose Manderese. was also shot through
the leg. A mob soon collected, and the
greatest excitement prevailed. Tbey at
tacked the whole Chinese quarter, and
were resisted by the Chinese. Five hun
dred armed men surrounded tbe Chiuese
quarter to prevent any from escaping
Fifteen Chinamen were banged by the
mob, and their homes set on fire, Tbe
fire was, however, extinguished
The mob was composed mostly of na
tive Califbrnians and the dregs of society
All the Chinese that were banged were
frightfully beaten and maletreated before
hauging. One of them was a child ouly
eight or nine years old.
In addiliou to eighteen persons hanged,
two men and one woman were found shot
dead, and another person was discovered
in jail in an insensible condition. Ouly
one of those who were hanged has been
identified aa engaged in tbe shooting of
the officers. Tbe others are all supposed
to be innocent, the guilty ones having
escaped befi.re the mob assaulted their
houses. T he old Vigilance Committee
bas been reorganized to prevent a repeti

"Jig Dear ifrdiitt:-TU gtt
foigkt of the weekr-mns me arotiod an
other time. I am not tbe only man that
it akes feel all over when it comes No
sir. There have been other men as good
aa I, as smart as I, in other days, long
ago 'gone by. that it made feel just as
queer and happy as it makes me feel :
For instances, there was that farmer
writer of poetry; Barns, I believe, ---wtar
his name I suppose you bare beard of
him who got so full of feeling about
Saturday niht, just like I am, that he
bad to let it out in a poem, that 1 believe
is called the "Cotter's Saturday Night."
That's a mighty nice poem, and if you
haven't read it, yon bad better get it and
read it. I wonder if the Poet Burns
was forefather to Pap Burns, in Mifflin
county, who isn't a poet, but ia the fath
erly master of the ring in Juniata conn
ty, and looks to ths political interest of all
its members, and makes tbem hoe it
down, just when he fays "Hoe it down,
boys " I kind o' like the name, and next
to Speak, and Jackson, I think it's tbe
nicest out. I'll bet tbey are related, just
like the Speaks in England and tbe
Speaks bero are related.
Some wise man, I don't mind who it
was, may he it was Andy Jackson it
makes no difference, though said that
the young folks live in tbe future, and
that old folks live iu the past. It may
be that it is because I am getting old
that I think tbe Saturday nights of thirty
years ago were nights of more fuu for all
than the nights of these times You
youngsters don't know what fun is ; you
came iuto the world just about the time
that fun commenced to go nut You
have got now too much of what's called
fashion. We didn t have nothing of that
sort them days. We were all like one
family ; like in the days of Abraham.
W hat a good tellow be was. 1 never
heard tbat Andy Jacknan was a Jew,
but I realy believe that he descended
from Abraham- We used to have stone
pickings in tbem days. All the young
fellows iu the neighborhood used to go to
them stone picking, frolics, and pick
stones all day, and in the evening the
girls of the neighborhood would come to
the place where we had the stone picking,
aud then we would wind up the job in a
merry style. We used to have log rol
ling days, too. They are not needed now ;
the country is old, and cleared It was
a dirty job, that of rolling lugs. It was
wholesome, though, aud I liked It. All
the boys liked it, for it ended exactly
like the stone picking among tbe girls.
Our fatheis were smart ; (hey kuowed
bow to sweeten np a bard lay's work
with a social gathering. I said them log
rollings were dirty ; but I say it now,
and I II stick to it to the hist di tch as
them tarnel southern fellows say that
iu tbe dirtiest rolling I ever attended. 1
never felt so dirty as when in a conven
tion when the ring bad it ret up to gouge
some honest fellow out. That was always
shard pill for me I'll never swallow an
other Then we had corn husking, and
inetry good times, I tell you. they were.
Kach boy had a girl as a partner to husk
with. We the boys, during the day
would haul the corn iu the shock iuto
the barn, and in the evening both girls
and boys woulj go to th- b irn and husk-
Some of the fellows liked to sit opposite
their girls. 1 bey told me that they would
shove out their feet till they touched the
girls feet. They said it made them
feel so queer. But I never did that. I
didn't think it was right. I always seat
ed myself alongside of my girl. And if
I'd be at auother such a gathering cf
youngsters, I'd make them all sit on one
side. Think of it. Yon never lived
through such times. And thn we used
to top out ou Saturday night with a visit
to our sweethearts We did not have coal
oil them days, and often tallow dips were
scarce ; but we didn't need much light
at such times; we used to sit pretty close,
and, oh glory, such courting in tbe dark,
yon youngsters of these times never
dreamed of. In them times we didn't
have newspapers tbe only good things
that we hadn't. I knowed little of and
cared little for anything or anybody ex
cept Andy Jackson, outside of Green
wood township. Now we read every
week in the newspapers about the world
outside of Greenwood township,.
By the by, writing about newspapers
the greatest of all inventions, because
they tell as of all the good and all the
bad in i he world I see that the R-g 'tter,
the ring organ iu thin county, got its
dutch np last week, over my letters to
you. It's mad, and says tbat tbey made
you as ' happy as a wench at a camp
meeting " That is a sort of a dig agaiu
at the colored folks. The Register is
sick of the 9th resolution, and has a no
tion to again join the white man's party.
For once the Register made me feel good.
It made my heart glad to learn that yon
felt happy over Barton peak s letter.
I wonder if tbe Rtifitler told the truth.
It almost makes me shout on this blessed
Sttnrday night to think that my letters
make you glad and the R'g'i'ar mad.
Tbem fell iws of the ReHtler say tbat
you r a curiosity. 1M like to see yon
once. I'm sorry that I can t send back

the same of ihem. I've seen them often

AMERIC AN WASHER.
The American Washer Saves Mans,.
Tims and Drudgsrr.
The Fatigue of Washing Day no longer dread
ed, but Economy, Efficiency, and Clean
In calling public attention to this liltla
machine, a.ew of the iuvuluublc qualities,
(not possessed by any other washing machine
yel invented.) are here enumerated :
It is the smallest, moteontpa?tt nicJt port
able, most simile in construction, moe easily
operated. A child, ten years old. wilb a few
hours' practice, can thoroughly comprehend
and effectually use it. Them is no adjust
ing, no screws to an now. no delay in adapt
ing ! It is always ready f jr use ! It is a
perfect little wonder! It ia a miniature
aiant. doing more work and of a better q!. sl
it, than Ihe most elaborate and costly. One
half of Ihe labor is fuily saved by its nse.
and the clo'hes will last t.ne-h:Jf longer than
by the oM plan r the rub board. li will
wach Ihe largest blanket. Three shirts at a
time, washed thoroughly ! Iu a word, tha
ablution of any fabric, from a Quilt to a
Lace "urtaiu or Cambric Handkerchief, arw
equally wiibin the capacity of t!,'.s .LITTLE
KM! It can be fastened lo any tub and
taken ft at will.
No matter how deep rooted a prejudice may
exist against Washing Maoiiin-s, tbe moment
this little machine is seen tt rxrfirm is won
eers. all doubts of iis cleansing em-aey and
utility are banished, and the douiter and
detractor al once become the fast friends of
the machine. -
We have tetimonials wilh'ut ead. setting
forth its numerous advantages overall others,
and from hundreds wbo have thrown aside
the nowielny. aaeless mark in en. wniel) have
signally failed to accomplish the objct prom
ised in prominent and, loud sounding adver
tisements. It is as perfect for washing as a wringer is
The price, another paramount inducement
lo purchasers, has been placed so tow, thv it
is within the reach of every housekeeper,
and there is no article of domestic economy
tbat will repay the small investment so snow.
All that is aked for this CHEAT LABOR
SAVER, is a fair trial. We guarantee each
machine to do its work perfectly.
