From this time on for a season the Jou mal will give its readers less poli tical matter but more news, especially general news. Not that we feel one whit less interest in public affairs, nor would we have the people less watch ful of what our represent atives in state and national legislatures, as well as other public officials, are doing, or what they leave undone. Every citizen and voter should be well informed on the passing political events of his country, acd every one expects to read them in his own paper. These we will endeav or to publish, faithfully and regularly, but the common regulation campaign literature of the day will cease for a white in the Journal, even at the risk of having its party orthodoxy called into question, We assume that by this time the gen r rl public is pretty thorough* informed that Pattison is elected Governor of Pennsylvania, and that he will be a ••just splendid" Governor, notwith standing his relative youth ; that Gov. Cleveland, (if New York, has a majori ty just a trifle too clumsy for any prac tical nw; that the big Democratic broo made all out a clear sweep over the whole 4 land of the free that the n xt congress will have a Democratic ui j vity and elect a Democratic Speak er : that our dressy and showy Stalwart President is by no means a second Washington, and that Don Cameron and the other big auvl little Stalwart b -Aes are about the woist and wicked est set of men in politics this side of Fandt-moiuin. Now the Journal don't care to repeat t •s? and other well-established facts in -lightly varied form, wee k after week, throughout the entire year. "There is a time for everything," and even party papeis would do well to re vvrt to the time-honored adage of the J philosopher,once in a while. Th pa lter tli.it cannot for a season at least lift itV.f out and above lite well-worn cam- It lign rut has but a low conception of ♦ duties and responsibilities of jour nalism. T. ere are other and to the Journal ni re congenial lines of duty. We will -Tive in the future as we haye done in the pist, to make ours a live, readable, i jstructive and chaste local and family I *pT. We are very free to confess that v.e never yet nearly reached our ideal , f what such a paper should be, and never may, but are doing the very best we can with our modest abilities and the material at command. la our local department we give all the mentionable incidents, happenings, ! ai d particuhuly all the - material im j vc nenrs obtainable in the commun-1 I T. True, we cannot publish every-' thing that occurs, and it is sometimes TC y difficult to get full and accurate, tails of the more important events in tto neighborhood. And just here we vhi refer to one matter which perhaps w. should have mentioned before now : • We do uot publish marriage or obituary i; -Rices unless furnished with the prop- 1 *r l t by responsible persons. We will i.ot • trsj it the names of those who get man itJ. or at the ages of those who de- JM. t thL life, as the uiuuaer of SJUIO is It grates harshly upon the bereaved hearts, as well as upon the happy spirits of those immediately concerned. This is the reason the Journal is sometimes a week behind other papers in giving these anxiously looked-for notices. It would be an easy matter to till our columns with general news to the ex clusion of everything else—ana this would be tne easiest way to edit a pa per. We glean from thedailies— largely fiom sucli first cJa*s papers as the Phil adelphia Tours —whatever in our opinion is most useful and instruc tive. We have a strong aversion to publishing the revolting details ot every murder, hanging, suicide, prize fight and other crimes and scandals that are becoming so common in this great country, although they are'sought and read with insatiable greed by a large class of people. They are not proper reading matter for the family circle, for they neither instruct nor im prove, but have a strong tendency to debase and corrupt both mind and mor als, especially of the young. A public journal should take advanc ed grounds in educational and school matters, in the temperance cause, in every progressing and projected im provement. It should freely commend everything good and noble, and as fear lessly condemn every wrong, lint who is equal to all these multitudinous and high duties ? Having set out at some length the in tended course of the Journal in the near future, and having arrived as we hope, at a fair understanding with our pa trons and friends, we will labor on cheerfully and hopefully. - CONGRESS MEETS. SEN A HE. WASHINGTON', December 4.—The senate was called to order at noon by I President pro tem. Davis. After pray j er by the chaplain the customary reso ' hit ions were adopted for the nppoint j raenfc of a committee to notify the I President and tlx? house that the sen- I : ate was ready for business. Mr Brown then, in a solemn and feeling manner, announced the death of Senator 11 ill of Georgia, and the senate at 2 50, as a token of respect for the memory of the deceased, adjourned. HOUSE. WASHINGTON, December 4.—The second session of the Forty-seventh congress opened ac 11 o'clock. The desk occupied last session by the 1 ate Representative Updegraff was taste fully dressed in black and ornamenteJ by a basket of flowers. In his opening prayer, the chaplain alluded feelingly to to.the deaths of Representatives Lowe and Updegraff. The speaker then for mally declared the session opened and the eletk proceeded to call the roll of members. The call disclosed the pres ence of 202 members. A resolution was adopted providing for the appoint ment of a committee to inform the. President and the senate that the house was ready to proceed to business. The President's message was read and ordered to be printed. The deaths of Representatives Low, of Alabama and Updegraff, of Ohio, were announced and as marks of respect to their mem ories the house at 3 10 adjourned. PATTISON'S CABINET. Three Speculations About It—Sten ger Looming Up—Cassidy, Buck alew, Hay and Jenka. The Pattison Cabinet is freely discussed amoDg the politicians now, and speculation is rife among the Democratic leaders as to how the new an ministration is to be organi -1 zed. It is credibly stated that Ex- Assist int District Attorney John R. Reed was first the leading man for Secretary of the Commonwealth, but Cassidy then looomed up for At torney General, and that halted Reed in the race, * The Secretary ship then wandered westward, ac cording to current rumor, and struck Malconi Hav, of Allegheny, but lieis not in harmnny with Cassidy, and he is now regarded as having placed himself out of the range of Cabinet honors. It is hinted that he would have accepted the Attorney Gener alship, but not the Secretaryship. There is a matter of four thousand dollars difference in the salary of the two positions—-the Secretaryship being worth, including fees, about $7,000 per annum, and the Attor ney Generalship SII,OOO. The latest rumor that is rapidly crvstalizing into Democratic belief, is that Ex-Congressman William S. Stenger, of Cliambersburg, is likely tc be tendered the Secretaryship of the commonwealth, and that the At torney Generalship oscillates be tween Lewis C. Cassidy.of this city, Charles R Ruck;.lew, of Columbia, and George A. Jenks, of Jefferson, All are strong and experienced law yers. There is formidable opposi tion to Cassidy in his own party in this city, and all the Senatorial can didates for 1885 would look with suspicion upon his appointment to the Pattisor, cabinet. Mr. cassidy has not avowed his desire to be ap pointed, and it is possible that lie may solve the problem by declining altogether, in which case it is be lieved tint Buckalew would have more than an even chance for win ning.
