One week ago Philadelphia waa
crowded by people from every state and
territory in the Lnion, to witness or
take a part directly in the nomination of
U.S. Grant for President, to wnom
more than any other man the people of
this country owe the rescue of free insti
tutions from the grasp of men who did
not believe in mans capability of self
crnvArnment. The outpouring of the
people and the honest, spontaneous en
thusiasm in favor of Grant, baa not been
eqauled, excepting in the case of the la
men ted Lincoln.
It may be said that the campaign was
formally opened on the part of the Ke
publicans at the Wigwam erected by the
ir.rtroi.fr Club on Broad street, above
Amh treet on the evening of the
4th inst. The building was crowded
The platform, the seats, the aisles, every
place within its walls, was densely pack
ed. Five thousand people wete lucre,
eager spectators and participants on the
occasion, and thousands who songht ad
mission were compelled to return to their
homes without as much as even a sight
of the inside of the house. The good
and great champion of American industry,
Henry C. Cary, of Philadelphia, pre
sided. Among the many distinguished men

made speeches wtre Senator Nye, Sena

nighest campliments for wisdom and in
tegrity and purity of purpose, but they
also endorsed the Pennsylvania State
ticket, and denounced the doctrine, that
we may loose the State in October and
regain it in November, as a dangerous
doctrine. General Burnside expressed
the belief that he thoroughly knew Gen
eral Hartranft. who for a long time be
longed to his command, a trusted and bon-
ored man. He had placed him nnder
circumstances "through which no man
but one possessing the strictest integrity

delivered by a coloied man from South

from Arkansas, and Elliott is the name
of the man from South Carolina.. Mr
Elliott had not finished his speech when
the Convention was informed by Morton

The Convention then adjourned to
meet at 10 o'clock on the 6th, to com

Long before the hour of 10 o'clock ar
rived, on the Gth a large crowd of peo

Academy, waiting to be admitted. The
building soon filled after the doors were

President Grant was nominated and
accepted by every delegation, withont a
dissenting vote. The audience rose en
masse when the nomination was declar

and women smiled and waved their hand
kerchiefs and fans, and it was a long
time before quiet was restored. Not un
til the President with his gavel brought
the convention to order.
The vote for Vice President was then
takeu. On the call of the ballot the
votes of the Stales were all cast for Wil
son and Colfax except 66 that were scat
tering, and so nearly did the two men
just named run even that the change of
the 20 votes of the Virgiuia delegation,
that bad been cat for a Virginian, turned
the majority for Mr Wilson One State
after another followed Virginia in her
declaration, until the chairman of the
Indiana delegation moved to make the
nomination of Mr. Wilson for Vice Pres
ident unanimous. The applause that
followed was loud and long, and thus
ended the nominations.

The building erected for the concert is
550 feet long and 3.'0 feet wide The
area of the roof is fonr and a half acres.
Eight thousand gas jets will tnpply it
with light. Two steam fire engines will
be on duty day and night, with steam np
ready for work at a moment's notice.
There has been a strike among the
men employed at the gas works in Phila
delphia. The men demand a reduction
of the hours of labor. They have been
working 12 hours a day with three rests
of 25 minutes each. They also ask for
fifteen per cent, of an increase of pay.
They have been receiving 82 56 to $2 68
per day. The city has been compelled
to nse candles and oil for light, and men
on the streets after dark carried torches.
To be on the street of a large city at
night without light must occasion a feel
ins; of uneasiness and unsafetv. It would
be safer and pleasanter in a deep dark
woods at night.

that on the 7th instant Mr. John Toung,
the mail carrier from Beallsville to Mon

black snake, which he 'was only able to
conquer after a considerable battle. He
first observed the snake stretched along
the limb of an oak reaching across the
road, with its head swinging down, evi
dently waiting for the rider's passage un
derneath, with an intent to drop on him.
Mr Young rode to the side of the way,
when his snakeship seeing the evasiou,
flung itself from the tree at him, and at

drew his pistol and firing wounded the

Lere, MMproIat-sat, art a Throat Cat.
Schuylkill county has become some
what famous for sensations, and Silver
Creek has determined to be op to the
times, and sends forth a tale of love, dis
appointment, and revenge that is amuaiug
t mmv the least. For some time paai a
young gentleman and a young lady of
that place, whose names we aou i cnoose
to tell, have been particularly devoted to
each other, and were never so happy as
when in each other's company, lime
wore on, and events ' transpired which
disclosed the fact that the confiding
daughter of Rye had loved "not wisely"
but too well.
Last week it became necessary for the
man to work all day, all night, and all
the following day withont rest or sleep,
and as a matter of course he felt tired,
and felt the want of sleep, but thought he
would pay a visit to his heart's ador
able in the forepart of the evening
While sitting on the lounge next to the
girl he laid bis head on her lap and fell
asleep, but was shortly awakened by a
tickling sensation about his neck, and
awoke suddenly to realize that his lady
love was cut ing bis throat with a pen
knife which Ve bad presented her some
time previous. With the blood spirting
over them both, he demanded to know
why she committed such a rash act,
when she begged of hitn to take the
knife and kill ber, that they might both
die together. This he refused to do, but
set about stopping the flow of blood
from his wouud and seeking medical
aid. He was soon put beyond danger
after which the matter was compromised
by tba two entering into olumo eora

will live long to bless the night on which
the crowning "point"' of their tender and
loving courtship was consummated. The

Toledo, Peoria and Wabash road "also
suffered severely, losing one bridge of
one hundred and fifty feet in length.
The town of Hilton is almost entirely

stream of the Illinois river. The im
mense volume of wator that passed iuto
the stream has created a back-water and
there is a strong current- running north

rising rapidly, and fears are entertained
of serious damage.
