The Republican Sute Convention met
last Wednesdsy.at Harriaburg.andnomi-
" nated General John F. Hartranft for Gov

I hundred and thirty-three delegates eighty-
seven cast tbeir votes for him. and forty-

i General Hartranft ha not only been a
; trne and faithful toldler, and a fair repre

; he has been the earnest adherent and ad

' basis And he has passed through an

1 Hen. W. W. Ketchum's Manhood.
I Halt t

. to preserve his manhood. ' It is an easy
thing to be a knave or a fool, or bot'u, bnt
it m no easy thing to be a man. The
characters named are met with every day
true manhood and manly action not so
frequently. This may be said of nearly
every phrase of life, the political circle of
conrse not briDg the exception. These
different qualities were strikingly illus
trated just previous to and immediately

1 ranft for Governor. There were men
who advocated him for that position.
,. . , , ,
1 here were men who advocated other
men for that position. These preferences
brought out the fair and unfair qualities
of the respective friends of the candi
dates. But no previous nomination for
Gubernatorial honors revealed a higher
phrase of manhood than was exemplified
in the action of Mr. Ketchum, who was
Mr. Hartranft's chief opponent for the
nomination. For days men bad been de
claring that Mr. Ketchum and his friends
were being unfairly dealt with. A cer
tain portion of tbe press was struggling
to engender an unpleasant feeling be
tween tbe cbiet competitors, wbicli was
believed could not be healed after the
nomination. Mr. Ketchum's claim had
not been a thoroughly canvassed before
the people of the Commonwealth as had
the claims of General LTartraaft, and the
result In the convention was that the vote
on ffrat ballot stood 87 for Hartranft and
45 for Ketchum. Mr. Ketchum's man
hood is not of that character that when'a
coutest honorably conducted results con
trary to his wishes, that he opposes each
and all of those who were opposed to him.
Hie manhood is of the highest type, as is
illustrated in the action in which he gath
ered all of hi friends in line in front of
his hotel the Jones Houses and there
placing himself at the bead of the pro
cession, and to the step of the music of j
the band tbat be brought with him from
his own town, he marched to the Lochiel
Hotel tbe headquarters of Gen. Hart
ranft and there, in the parlor with bis
friends around him, he delivered a speech
f congratulation, and pledged himself
heartily to the work for tbe election of
General Hartranft, after which be per
sonally introduced all of his friends.
Such is the manhood of Mr. Ketchum.
It is of the highest type, and has only
been correctly revealed bv the lata mlr.
Mr. Ketchum's manly course might be
profitably studied by certain city gentlemen-
of journalistic reputation. Halt !

The following resolutions, adopted by
the Republican State Convention at Har
rieburg, on the 10th inst,, constitute the
platform of tho Repnblican party in this
Sute, and should be read carefully by
every man :
Ketolcrd, That we reaffirm onr devo
tion to the principles of the Republican
party, and our belief that the continued
existence of tbat party is necessary to
the maintenance and success of those
principle. The grand and fundamental
idea of the equality of all men in political
right is not professed by any other par
ty, andean be sustained faithfully - only
by those who are sincerely committed to
Retolced, That the adoption of the
thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth
amendments to the Constitution of the
United States has not been sufficiently
acquiesced in by all to render certain
and secure their permanent incorporation
in that instrument, and hence the admin
istration of the Government can safely
be entrusted only to that party which is
heartily and beyond question committed
to them and the policy necessary to put
them into successful opt ration.
Retofeed, That we are now more than
ever called to sustain the policy of na
tional protection to Amarican industry
If the laborer is worthy of his hire, and a
fair dav's work entitles the worker to a
fair day's pay, we must continue to throw
lie Dro tec tine arm of the Government
around those who toil for their daily
bread. The protective policy alone
makes labor contented aud capital se
cure. It renders employment certain
and pay ample and satisfactory, while
free trade m ans tbat our laborers and
mechanics must either work for lower
wages or that our factories should be
closed through foreign competition and
the working men of the country deprived
Retolved, That the public lands belong
to the people, and should be reserved for
the people. We therefore pronounce
most decidedly against any further ap
propriation of the public lands in behalf

ot corporations or inoiviauais. ah laiius
not sold according to law should be open
to pre-emption and actual settlement.
Retohed, That we demand a contin
ued adherence to the policy hitherto pur
sued uuder Republican auspices in our
State and in the Nation of a steady and
gradual reduction of the public debt
The interests of the people require that
the most rigid economy should be prac
ticed in the administration of both the
Natioual and State Governments, and
tbat taxes should be reduced in both as

abe maintenance of the public credit and
the certain extinguishment of the public
Resolved, That we heartily approve
of the act of General Grant in giving a
trial to the plan of civil service, reform.
We demand that that plan, or any other
that may be substituted to its place as
better, shall have a fair and unembar
rassed trial ; that every effort shall be
made to secure competent men for the
public service, and that hooesty and in
corruptibility shall be deemed qualifica
tions as essential as competency and in
Rtfcloed, Tbat the Republican party
has given fnll evidence during the past
eleven years of its ability to administer
the Government honesly, faithfully, and
successfully. It has, within that time,
maintained the honor of oar national flag
at home and abroad, preserved the Un
ion from disruption, and restored it in its
integrity, secured to all classes and con
ditions of men the rights given to them
by their Maker, and having proclaimed
liberty throughout all the land to all the
inhabitants thereof, has given to that
proclamation the full effect to which it
was entitled, and we, therefore, in its
name, claim from the people a continu
ance of their confidence, and fearlessly
challenge tbeir scrutiny into iu acta.
Rcsoleed, That we point with pride to
the record of General Grant's adminis
tration of the National Government. Not
only has the weight of internal taxation
been almost wholly removed from the
people's shoulders, but three hundred
millions of the national debt have been
paid off, a result never before attained by
any other people under like circumstan
ces, and for which we are indebted to
the rigid honesty, strict econemy, and
sterling integrity which the President
has brought to the administration of na
Rrtohed, That we present hi name
for renomination to the Presidency, con
fident that the people will again rally to
the support of the man who so nobly
fought their battles, who under the guid
ance of Providence, brought the nation
safely through its struggle to maintain
its existence, and who has since so suc
cessfully administered the affair of the
Government as to command general ad
miration at home and abroad.
Retolved, That we will stand by the
Government in the foreign policy so firm
ly marked out and adhered to by
rresiaem urani. t oe Donor ot tbe na
tion, we feel, is safe in his hands, and
and the flag under which he never suf
fered defeat will not be dishonored while
be is kept in tbe front.
Retolved, That we congratulate the
people of Pennsylvania on the final ac
coraplishment of the call for a convention
to revise and amend tbe constitution of
Pennsylvania, and we earnestly urge
npon our inena to see tbat delegates
are chosen in their respective district
committed to the policy of incorporating
in that insrnments a clear and decisive
prohibition of special Legislation
Retolved, That we hereby declare onr
oppositiou to every effort to withdraw
from the sinking fund of the Common
wealth, by substitution, exchange or oth
erwise, any of the bonds, securities, or
moneys now pledged to it. and through
it to the payment of the pblic debt, and
our inflexible determination to preserve
the same invioably for tbe fulfilment of
tbe common obligation, -
Retoleed, That the thank of our par
ty are due to Governor John W ftearv.
under whose lead our principle have
iwice oeen euccesstully vindicated in
Pennsylvania. The Sute debt ha been
largely reduced during bi administra
tion ; our soldiers' orphan' have been
fully cherished and educated, and onr

and that such laws sboild be enacted by

both in their development and the trans

Retolved, That we are earnestly in
favor of the earliest possible removal of
tbe duties on tea and coffee, and urge the
prompt passage of the bill for that pur
pose, now before Congress.

Cio, Iir., April 11. At 4 A. M. to
day the steamer Oceanus, from Red Riv
er to St. Louis, when near Brooks'
Point, Thirty miles above Cairo, explo
ded her boiler, blowing her upper works
almost entirely away, immediately after
which the wreck took fire and burned to
the water's edge Thompson, pilot of
the steamer John Lnmeden", which was
lying a lew miles below, on seeing the
burning wreck manned a yawl and pro
ceeded np the river to ascertain the cause.
He found a small body of survivors on
the head of an Iclano, but passed on to
relieve those on the wreck. Ten or
twelve were seen clinging to the wheel,
bnt the wheel dropped before he reached
tbem, and all bnt fonr were lost.
He found a deck passenger, name unknown-,
aear the shore badly scalded, and
who died before 'his arrival at Cairo.
Thompson rescued tbe pilot Harris, who
subsequently went to St. Louis on the
Marble City. The' latter states that
Wiggins their Red Hiver pilot, was
drowned. Harrys Trip, pilot, on the
watch, and Captain Reeder were buried
in the debris, and were heard calling des
perately for help, bt tbe fire had gained
such headway that tbey could not be
reached, and were burned. Fisher, tbe
carpenter of the ill fated steamer, who
reached here on the Shreve, was not se
riously hurt he says that the second
engineer, Alex. Kennedy, was terribly
scalded, helpless and blind.
Fisher pnt him on a stage of planks
with others, but the stage capsized,
drowning seveial, including Kennedy.
George Reithley, first engineer, is sup
posed to be lost. Henry M. Worstham,
first clerk, has not been seen since the
explosion. He expected to go - through
from Cairo by nil, but was seen on the
boat after leaving here.
Charles Worsham, second clerk ; Jules
Dempwolf, steward, and Charles M array,
cabin-boy, were found dead, floating in
the river, all with life-preservers on, and
were brought here by the steamer Shreve.
It is supposed that they were chilled to
death. There were five women passen
gers, all of whom are supposed to be
lost. Tbe bodies of four women were
seen floating past Watson's Landing to
day, Fisher thinks that Pilot Harris and
him self were the only employees, of the
boat saved, though the Belle St. Lonis
may have picked Op some.
Tbe officers of the Sherve stated that
there were about thirty cabin and thirty-j
five deck passengers, making, with tbe j
crew, nearly one hundred souls, about
eighty of whom are supposed to have
been lost. The greater portion of the
survivors being on the Belle St Louis,
no names of passengers nor any reliable j
estimate of the number lost can be ob-!
