B. OR&TZ BllOWN, of KUaourl.
Tile Campaign In Pennsylvania.
The Key-Btone State bas become tho
centre of attraction in the political cam?
paign. The troth is, that with Pennsyl?
vania, Indiana and Ohio, it is conceded
tbe result of tho race between Horneo
Greeley and TJ. S. Grant rests. Of the
three, Pennsylvania Btands forth as per?
haps tho most important. She oasts a
larger electoral voto than either of the
other two, but it is to other facts that
the groat prominence of Pennsylvania
moBt be attributed. There is, in the
first plaoe, extremely absorbing local
issues at stake in Pennsylvania. The
Republican party of the State has for
years fallen into the control of corrupt,
self-seeking speculators, who have de?
bauched bor Legislature and instilled
the deadly viras of venality into ovory
department of the State Government.
' Railroad, coal, oil and other rings rulo
the State, and a few bad, unscrupulous
men like Cameron manage those rings.
Hartrauft, the Radical candidate for
Govornor, is the croaturo of Cameron.
His crimes may not be to numerous nor
BO patent, but he is essentially a man
after the order of oar young Mose?.
The fight against Hartranft, therefore,
ie not one simply of Liberalism against
Radicalism, but of integrity and econo?
my in government against profligacy and
Many, probably nearly all, of the
honest Republicans of the State, who
are not blinded throagh party preju?
dices to Hirtranit's questionable charac?
ter, will opposo him and sustain Bnoka
lew, the conservative oandidute, and a
man of remarkable purity, energy,
ability and statesmanship. The Adminis?
tration has, however, warmly espoused
the cause of Hartranft. Grant and hie
national party have chosen to identify
themselves with the Cameron ring, and
both mast stand or fall together. There
will be bat little, if any, change in the
Presidential election from the vote which
will be cast on next Tuesday for State
officers. The Government is expending
all its powers of money and of patronage
to carry the day for Hartranft. Grant
and bis political advisers, who are run?
ning the Radical machine, ure fully
alive to the disastrous cons?quences
which would flow to them, should
Backalew be made Governor of Pennsyl?
vania, and tho Cameron ring of lobbyists
and speculators be onsted from power.
Negroes, it ii said, are bei og imported
in large numbers from Maryland and
Virginia to vote on the 8th, and the full
strength of the poworfnl corporations
which Cameron oouttols is being put
forth in every conceivable form, legiti?
mate or illegitimate, which may influence
the eleotion. The G ran tites have thc
money and every appliauoe by which it
is possible to work upon the venal pro
peasities of the baser classes of man?
kind. There wiil, doubtless, too, be a
great doal of ballot-box stuffing, &c.
Bat the Liberals and Democrats have
every honorable advantage oa their side.
Their candidates are unexceptionable,
and they are fighting the people's-tht
tax-payers'-battle against legislative
corruption and extravagance. If othei
things were equal, there is bat little rea?
son to doubt that tho immense power
aud patronage of the Governmont at
Washington would easily tura the saalcf
in favor of its candidate. Bat the vast
majority of voters are still hoaest. Thej
cannot bo approached with bribes, ant:
when they are called apoa to decide be?
tween mea like Buckalow and Hartranft,
there can be bat one conclusion to whict
they will come. We feel quite hopeful
and buoyant, therefore, ia regard to tht
state of affairs ia Pennsylvania .
Roports from Indiana and from Ohic
of the Liberal canvass, are almost equal
ly encouraging, and inasmuch as theil
action will determino the Presidents
struggle, tho eleotion of Horace Greeloj
at this time seems reasonably sure. W<
are inclined to tho belief that the loss ol
Ponofylvania alone will give the finish'
iag stroke to Graat. Oertaia it is, thul
he cannot possibly withstand tho defec?
tion of both Pennsylvania and Iudiunr.
or Ohio. Tho latter State has generally
been ooocedod to Graat, until within thc
post few weo'is. Now, so great is tht
popular enthusiasm which has attende."
the Liberal movement there, that the
Democrats and Liberals have become
confident of success. Next Tuesday, al
?my rate, will tell the tale.
General Moses, in a published, card,
(lonies the statemeat of the Beaufort
Times, that ia 1805 ho sought the ap?
pointment of judge of one of tho courte
created by the Legislature, because he
wai desirous of enforcing the Black
Hou. Wm. W. Eaton, a leading Demo?
crat in Connecticut, who didn't iiko the
Greeley movement, enid in State Con?
vention there Wednesday: "It is said
there are Democrats who will not voto
the tioket. Well, there may bo some.
To such, I propose to address myself. I
did Bay at a dinner-table, Homo time ago,
that I didn't like to take medicino till I
was sick. Well, I got sick. And oat of
50,000 Dcmoorats in this State, ?9,000
were taken sick about the same time.
Tho dose in the oap, marked Greeley, is
the best medicino wo can tako. Adams
would have pleased mo bettor, but Gree?
ley is tho nominee. And he is attacked
with moro violence by his late Republi?
can friends than any other man has ever
been-and what for? Beoauso he moans
to stop the stealing."
A STARTLING CoNsriRAcr AND AN EX?
CITING. RACE BY RAIL.-Tho New Orleans
papers toll an interesting story of a lato
race by rail, from New York to New Or?
leans, by Gov. Warmoth and Lieut.
Gov. Pinchbeck. It seems that tho
Grant brother-in-law, Oasey, Collector
of the port of New Orleans, conceived
the brilliant idea of assembling the State
Legislature by stealth, with a view to
the passage of a law depriving the peo?
ple of Louisiana, in effect, of the oppor
I tu ni ty to vote for Presidential electors,
by virtually lodging the power to seleot
those agents of the people with tho pre?
sent Grant Legislature. But in order to
have tho so-oalled law in duo and proper
form, it was, of course, necessary to havo
tho gubernatorial approval. Tho Govern?
or, however, is a Greeley man, but the
Lientenant-Governor, Pinohbeck, is for
Grant. Now both these officials were, at
that particular time, in the city of New
York, and the point of the oonspiraoy
was to get Pinchbeck baok to New Or?
leans beforo Warmoth; so that, by vir?
tue of his chief's absence, he could legal?
ly exercise the right to sign tho bill. Tba
Legislators, whom Casey had secretly
advised, were to bo promptly on hand,
HO that they might bo instantly con?
vened, pass tho required bill and havo it
instantly approved. A telegram was ac?
cordingly sent to Pinchbook summoning
him to New Orleaus immediately, and at
tho samo time advising him to advortise
that he would deliver a speech in Penn?
sylvania, in order to allay any suspicion
that might ariso in Warmoth's mind un
account of his departure from New
York. The advertisement was accord?
ingly made, in an ostentatious manner,
and on Saturday night the scheming
scoundrel left New York oity on nn ox
press train for New Orleaus-leaving bia
baggage aud servant behind to still fur?
ther choko down soBpicion. Twenty
four hours later, the Conservatives of
New Orleans, having received intimation
of tho villainy that was brewing, inform?
ed Gov. Warmoth of the plot by tele?
graph, and twelve boura later the Go?
vernor was crowding ali sail to over?
take tho fugitivo, Pinchbeck. Fortune
favored bis endeavors by so ordering it
that Pinchbeck bad to lie over at soma
piuco ou tho route. Meanwhile War
mouth was telegraphing to all con?
necting points ahead for special trains.
At Humboldt, he chartered a speciul
truiu, und ordered the engineer to make
forty miles an hour, net. Ho telegraphed
to ono point, whero he know that Pinch
buck would bo compelled to change cars,
to binder und delay him, if possible.
Accordingly, Pinchbeck was told thitt

we think Gov. Warmoth has entitle,
himself to the lusting gratitude of thi
people of Louisiana. Tho scheme t<

electoral college was Well phiuued, uni
but for Gov. Warmoth's exceedingly

A TKimiBLE SCENE-THE BU UN INO OF
THE NORTHERN OHIO INSANE ASYLUM.
The Cleveland Herald, of September 20,
We have rarely been called upon to
record a more serious and ' imeutable
public calamity than the near.y total de?
struction by Ure, Wednesday afternoon,
of the Northern Ohio Lunatic- Asylum,
at Nowburg. The building was 900 feet
in leugtb, the exterior walls being en?
tirely of stone. Two largo wings had
but just been completed, at a cost of
8300,000. These increased the capacity
of the institution to 00U patients, that
number hoing ou tho bookd at tho time
of the disaster. Thu crowded condition
of the asylum was owiug to the fact that
there were 15U patients from the central
It was hoped that tho flames might bo
extinguished without creating alarm
umong tho multitude of inmates. Io
the course of fifteen or twenty minutes
it was found that in spito of every effort
the flames had worked downward, und
were rapidly spreading through the up?
per story of the building in every dirco
tion. Ordors were given for the imme?
diate removal of the patients. The
scenes thut ensued during the next hour
almost defy description. Tho officers
and attendants made huste to unlock tho
doors of the wards and cells, und direct?
ed the inmates to leave the buhu mg. A
portion of them complied promptly, and
even rendered valuable assistance in tho
rsaoue of others. Somo of the unfortu?
nates were appalled with terror, and be?
came absolutely frantic, uttering pierc?
ing shrieks and erics. Tho extreme dif?
ficulty of controlling 000 lunatics, under
such circumstances, can bo imagined.
Many resolutely refused to leavo their
cells, concealing themsolves in closets or
under their beds. Ia runny ins'anees it
wets found necc?99!\ry to pull them out of
their hiding places by main force. lu
several cases snob stout resistance was
made that the strength of two or threo
men was required to overcome a single
patient. lu a few of tho worst cases
they struggled fearfully, lighting and re?
sisting with almost superhuman power.
Some of them insisted on tnkiug with
them all their clothing, bedding, and ar?
ticles of every kind. Ono mau tied up
au immeuBO bundle, thut would have
staggered a pack-horse, and was vainly
tugging to lift it from thc floor. He hud
to be actually torn from it by two men.
The fcmule patients wero even moro dif?
ficult to manage than tho mules, some
making all hasto to escape and others re?
fusing to leave their cells. Scores of
them wero taken by force. Several pa?
tients, after being sot nt liberty in tho
grounds, rushed back into the burning
building, to be again borne struggling
out. Farther from tho centre the wards
were generally cleared ueforo the tiro
reached them. Hundreds of men and
women from the village and the region
adjacent to the asylum wero engaged in
the work of rescuing the patients.
Shortly before 2 o'clook, a terrible ca?
sualty occurred. Near the centre dome
was a tank containing 8,000 gallons of
water, kept full for tho supply of the
building. The supports of the tank
having giveu away, it foll, the great
weight carrying it down to tho basement,
crashing through all tho intermediate
floors. Miss Mary Walker, a seamstress
in tho institution, was upou the third
floor. The falling mass passed near her,
tearing up the floor utnlor her feet. In
some way, her limbs got fast in tho de?
bris, and it was impossiblo for her to ex?
tricate herself. Tho fire which had been
carried down hy the fulling tunk blazed
up through tho openiug, and she waa
quickly enveloped in flame.
About the grounds, tho scene was ono
of the wildest confusion. 000 insaue
men and women were scattered about,
many of them screaming and rushing
through tho crowd. As soon as possible,
an effort was made to gather them toge?
ther and caro for them ns well ns possi?
ble uuder tho circumstances. Tho peo?
ple of Newburg did nobly, throwing

churches iu tho village, all of whicL

laughs, or Bitting in sullen silouee, these

neighboring houses. Few had aufttoieul
roasou to comprehend tho events of tht

others raved wiluiy, or indulged in sing

chorus, that seemed liko paudemouiua

Tho loss to the State may be rough i j
estimated at $500,000, ou which then

fact that six persons, ioc.ludiug tho threi
already telegraphed, aro victims to tht

A NEW Honiton-A FKHOCIOUF PABA
SITE TAKEN mox A MAN'S LEO -A?hort
time ago ii sailor waa sent to the oity hos?
pital from tho British bark Georgiana,
who waB supposed to bo suffering from a
sore leg. The mau bad been ailing for
near three mouths, but noue of bis ship?
mates supposed that there was tiuything
serious thu matter with him. According?
ly, when, a few days bofore his removal
to the hospital, ho declared himself nu?
able to wulk about, the cuptuiu of the
ship supposed that ho was endeavoring
to make au excuso for getting away from
the vessel, thut be might be left in port,
tho ship being prepared to suil in a fow
days. When removed to the hospital,
tho man's right leg wus very much
swollen, aud manifested ull the symp?
toms of erysipelas, .for which malady bis
affection was at first mistaken. At the
uod of a fow days, however, an abscess
formed upon the inner sido of the ankle
from which, after it bad burst, protrud?
ed about three inches of a white mem
branous-lookiug substance, about nu
eighth of un iuch in diameter. This
singular manifestation induced n careful
examination of the leg, which developed
the fact that tho mun was ufllicted with
the dracunculus, or Guinea worm. This
is a horrible parasite, found only ulong
tho shores of tho Indian Oceau, Bed Sea
and certain portions of the Mediterra?
nean. It infests damp and muddy soils
und impure water, aud generally attacks
tho feet and legs, but sometimes other
portions also of tho body. Ab the time
that it forsakes its native elemeut for the
more luxurious habitation of flesh and
blood, it is scarcely larger than u com?
mon flea; but, having once buried itself
beneath the skiu, it grows with alarming
rapidity, and will nttaiu a size varying
from six inches to six feet in length, by
one-twelfth to one-eight h of un inch in
diameter. It lies dormant tiutil it reach?
es tho ugo of maturity, niter which it
commences a series of wanderings and
meanderings about the muscles nod.
boues, which causes intense pain to the
unsuspecting victim. It always travels
downwards, and with such rapidity that
it will sometimes travel the whole length
of tho human frame iu twenty-four
hourn. It will sometimes come to the
surface aud lio under the skin like tl long
white cord; but should the surgeon at?
tempt to extract it with the kuife with?
out first securing it with u nipper, it. ?ill
elude his grasp and scamper uwuy with
the agility of un eel. If a portion of the
worm is removed, tho remaining portion
will not diu, but continues as guy und
lively as ever. Tho first symptoms of tho
Guinea worm are a disagreeable itching
and irritation of tho infected parts.
After it begins to move about, its paths
aro followed by external abscesses, and
when the paths lio along thu stomach,
interna! abscesses also, lt niwuyri inti?
mately endeavors to leave the system by
working its way through tho skin, gene?
rally near tho ankle, but this is only
after it has left from ten to ti:teen young
behind. Tho usual number of worms
tbut aro found iu one person vuries from
one to fifty. There is one case on re?
cord, however, of a man dying from the
effects of tho Guinea worm, whoso body
and skin were nothing but a net-work of
these horrid creatures. Death rarely ro?
st? Its from the ravages of this worm, and
when it does, it is generally tho result of
some disease produced by tho inflamma?
tion and other effects of the worm's wan?
derings. The Guinea worm does not
confine its ravagea to mun, but will also
attack dogs and horses. The sailor in
question made a voyngu to tho Eastern
coast of Arrian about six mouths ago,
aud while there received the parasites
iuto bis system. Ono of these worms
hus already been extracted from his
right leg, but another hus made its ap?
pearance iu the iuft. Hu is doing ns well

stances. This is probably thc first case
of thu kind over known in Charleston.

Jr., late of Atlanta, Georgia, but now a

forged, or caused to be forged, the name
of George P. Burnet to his official bond
