Washington despatches of last Friday, spread over the whole country the most j gTateful news, that has cheered the hearts ol the people for a long time. It was nothibg ing less than the fact that the expenditures of the government for the fiscal just ended, were $485,000,000 less than the for the prcviov. year. Add to such grateful news the addi tional fact that beside this retrenchment that reduced the national expenditures one half, there have been paid off sixty millions of the national debt since the 4th of March last, and we have surely abundant reason to be proud of our progress toward the pay ment of our debt. This is tho Republican j extravagance of which copperheads talk so i gliby and exhort the people to put a stop to j it by giving them the reins of government. We should think the people would scarcely j desire any change as long as Republicanism j presents such a record. Here are deeds that tell their own story. They are the evidences of promises faithfully kept and of duties honestly discharged. No party ever before presented so fair a record. While copperheadism relies on empty promises and has no record, but broken pledges, Re publicanism points proudly to promises more than kept and such an exhibition of retrenchment and economy as must put to shame the most brazen faced of the opposi- 1 tion whenever they dare to make compari son. The pride and glory of Republicanism, not only at the national capital, but in every state of the Union where they are in power, is that their deeds have more than made good their promises. From every stale where they are in power comes the same grateful news of debts paid off, ex penses reduced and of government credit improved. The marvellous performances of the war are even surpassed by the won derful economy exhibited in managing the public affairs in peace. No administration that shows such a record can fail to keep the confidence of tbe people. No party ever before performed such feats in finances. be wonders of the war pale in brillianey and effect before those of peace. While the enemies of the President malign him for . seeking refreshment in a day's fishing among the mountains of Pennsylvania, or in a fly ing visit to the seashore at Long Branch or Cape May, Republicans can proudly point to the record of their chief and his adminis tration and challenge even copperhead malignity to do its worst. Grant and Re publicanism will continue to stand upon their record and while s-vh exhibitions of financial retrenchment and reform contiuue to be made they need not fear the loss of public confidence. The people trust and approve, and copperhead abuse cannot weak en their confidence nor pre tent their ap proval. By their fruits ye shall know them. Here are substantial fruits in contrast with the emptiness of copperhead promises. Which do the people prefer? PRACTICE versus PROFESSION. The copperheads are asking to be given the control of the State Legislature on the ground of public economy. They do not point to their past record as a recommenda tion, YOT it would a condt-mnstion ins'cal, but they present fair promises because their stock in trade u promises and promises on ly. Let every one remember the practices of the copperheads. Here is a specimen. A motion was made last winter to increase the pay of members of tbe Legislature front $lOOO to $1500; for tbi s measure sixteen out of thirty-eight copperheads voted, while but twelve out of sixty-two Republican mem bers could be induced to vote for the bill. A pretty specimen of copperhead economy. Stealing and appropriating the public funds is the only principle of their party to which copperheads unflinchingly stick, through thick and thin. They advocate measures to snit any section or climate, but they nev er forget anywhere to fill their pockets from the public funds, whenever and wherever opportunity offers. In this, and in this alone, they are consistent the whole country over. THE Democratic ticket in Philadelphia is badly demoralized and is beginning to fall to pieces. Even Packer's gold cannot keep them together. The ticket is so unraitiga tedly bad and the candidates so notoriously corrupt and disreputable that even copper heads can no longer support it. The elec tion of such a ticket would have been a criitio against society. Ail good citizens re ; joiec io its disolution as they would have done in its defeat. Copperheadism is so notoriously corrupt in Philadelphia that the nomination of a good ticket is impossible. .The only assurance of peace and safety is in the election of the Republican ticket. 1 ROTECTION secures for the laboring man plenty of work and good wages. Democra cy opposes protection because it wants wa ges lowered. For this purpose it advocates free trade. Free-trade brings the pauper ' a^° r Europe into competition with free bor and thereby reduces the wages of the American laborer to starvation rates. Yet this same party calls itself the poor man's friend. Such friendship is the friendship of the woif for the lamb. Trust not the men nor the party whose practices and promises so openly disagree. _ d° a ' our copperhead cotempora ries point to some of Packer's heroic deeds or patriotic sayings during the war? He never did an act, or spoke a wotd for the union. He was the friend of rebels and the enemy of his country. Do the people want such a man for Governor? THE address of the Republican Executive Convention of Mississippi have declared in favor of universal amnesty and universal suffrage in their address to the people of that state. There would now sec-m to be no farther cause for division in that state. THE Whiskey Ring is moving for an in crease of the tax on whiskey. It is put in the plausible shape of an increase of revenue. The truth of the matter is that the tax is not high enough at present to enable the ring to bribe the revenue officers. They hope to get it increased and then cheat the Government out of the tax by bribing the officers. No honest roan will support this movement. News already comes from the west that the members of the ring are en gaged in buying up the stock in anticipation iof the increase of tax. We hope Congress 1 will disappoint these corrupt speculators by letting the whiskey tax severely alone. IT has been constantly charged that Pack cr moved to Philadelphia to avoid paying bis honest share of taxes, and his friends have acknowledged its truth in having nev er denied the statement. No better evi dence is needed of his unfitness for office than the fact that he cheats the Govern ment in his private business. An honest man never evades the payment of his fair share of taxes to the suppoit of his Govern ment. The mau who does is not to be trusted. THE copperheads, who never yet let slip an opportunity to revile and defame a gal lant soldier, are doing their very best at slandering and vilifying Governor Geary. He has been too faithful a soldier, too true a patriot to escape the venom of those mis erable reptiles known as copperheads. Abuse from them is the best proof of patri otism and integrity, and so the people accept I it. . WE are constantly obliged to contend against monopolists yet the Democracy in sist that one of the greatest monopolists in the State shall be placed in the Gubernato rial chair. Down with monopolies and mo nopolists, they aro the bane of the country and the sworn enemies of the poor man. Packer heads the list among the raiiroad and coal monopolists of the State. Away with bine PACKER is worth $20,000,000, yet the record shows that he managed to evade the payment of more than eight or nine dollars of taxes last year. Is the man who cheats the government out of itsju-t due? a good citizen? Does such a man de serve to be given control of tbe Slate gov ernment? Is the man who is dishonest in his private business fit to be entrusted with the control of the public funds? THE Ohio copperheads are already colo nizing for the October election. They are also relea.-iug their jail birds so as to enable them to get ready for coring. They are determined to rally their whole force and j recruit from the jails as well as from abroad. | They are going strong for Pendleton and | repudiation and the rallying of the jail birds is nut at all unnatural, as birds of a feather flock together. BILI. MCMULLIN, the Philadelphia rough, who secured Packer's nomination, has openly threatened riot and murder, on elec tion day and declared that the officers ap pointed to hold the election in his ward shall never be permitted to enter its prccints. Such are the supporters of Packer. They stop not at riot, bloodshed and murder to accomplish their nefarious purposes. J. T. KEAUY, Esq., requests us to say that he dimes the charges made against bitn in the card of Conley and Wiiliauis in la?t week's INQUIRER. Mr Keagy had pre pared a reply to the card but as it was calcula ted to call forth a rejoinder from the other party we declined to publish it as we do not wish to open an unfriendly controversy upon the subject. Goon NEWS FROM MAINE.—The Maine election on Monday resulted in a Republican victory, Governor Chamberiin being re elected by a majority of 8,000 or 10.000 in -pi'c of the temperance division. The R - | publicans also elect 27 out of the 31 Senators, making sure the passage of the fifteenth amendment. Two MILLION DOLLARS per year is the rate at which Republicanism has been pay ing off tbe state debt of Pennsylvania. Governor Geary and the Republican party stand pledged to continue it at this rate. Can the people do better therefore than to re elect Gov. Geary? FORTY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS of a state debt is tin; black record of thirty-years of Democratic rule in Pennsylvania. If the P'-ople wish a return to debLs and land taxes they can soon get it by voting for Packer. But if they wish to be freed from debts and taxes the only sure way is to vote for Geary. REPUBLICANISM IN? become the syno ny me fur economy and that of Democracy for extravagance. No better evidence of this can be found than the record of the State and narional finances. C. L. PERSHING the copperhead candi date for Supreme Judge, is a bitter uncom pmmi-ing partisan and a fourthrate lawyer, utterly unqualified for the po-ilion for which he is nominated. THE Vermont election on the 7th inst., resulted in a republican majority of 20,000. State officers and a legislature were elected. LATEST NEWS. JOHN BELL died at Nashville Tennessee, on Friday last, at the age of 72 years. NAPOLEON has been quite unwell for several weeks and bis abdication in favor of his son is talked of. * JUDGE DENT has been nominated for Governor by the Mississippi conservatives, otherwise rebels. THE Jews celebrated their New Year on the sth inst., being the beginning of the year 5360 according to their chronology. FOUR HUNDRED Mormons, mostly natives of England and M ales, lauded at Castle Garden, New York, on the 6th inst., all hound for Salt Lake City. JOSEPH SNYDER, who shot Richard D. Carter on Saturday the 4th inst., at Fair tnount Park, committed suicide in the Mayatnensing prison on the night of the 7th inst. A destructive storm passed over Boston and a portion of Massachusetts last week, causing a destruction of property to the amount of $5,000,000,00. The Boston Col iseum was seriously damaged. A railroad accident occurred on the Cen tra! Ohio Division of the Baltimore railroad on theSth inst, by which thxte persons were instantly killed and two others seri ously injured. GEN. JOHN A. RAWLINS, Secretary of War, died at Washington City, on the 6th inst., of pulmonary disease. He was a brave officer, a warm persona! friend of Gen. Grant and a member of his staff dur ing the war. SENATOR FESSENDEN of Maine, died at Portland on the Bth inst., from the effects, it is believed, of tho poison so mysteriously administered to the guests of the National Hotel io W ash ing ton some years ago. He was in bis sixty-third year of life. THE most important battle yet fought by the Cuban patriots, was on the 12th ult., near Las Tunas, in which tho Cuban- 6000 ! strong, but badly equipped, appear to have gained a decided victory over the Spanish forces numbering 4000 regulars. ONE hundred and ten miners were suffo cated in the Avondale Anthracite coal mine near Scranton Pa., on tho 6th inst,, by the burning of the coal breaker erected over the mouth of the mine, by which their c cape was prevented and the supply of fresh air cut off. POLITICAL, ITEMS. THE Democratic party will not suffer from the drouth, and it does not complain of it. The members avoid the use of' water as a beverage and it is their boast to be num bered with the great Unwashed. EIGHT more years of Republican rule at the same rate as the past eight will com pletely wipe out the State debt left us by Democratic rulers. Everybody who want it done will accordingly vote for Geary. THE Democratic party, being a party of discipline rather than of principle, ha the advantage in ordinary eontcsts. It is not a party of "moral ideas," but tbe pand-.rer to any vice that will give votes. CONSERVATISM is dead as a door nail in Mississippi and Texa-. The opposition, in those States, flies once more to the c 1 Democratic flag, with an occasional she--., . i the stars and bars. The Conservative dodge is played out. THE Patriot ridicules Geary's visit t > Gettysburg on the recent meeting of th Union officers. G aiy wa- in the battle ! GettyAburg, and had a right to meet th r his fel'ow soldiers. Where was Packer v. h n the battle of Gettysburg was fought ? DEMOCRACY is a hard thing to un I -r -statid. It means negro suffrage in the Sim;lt, and opposition to it in the North. If thi doctrinc is right in one place, it certainly ought to be in another; but then Democra •;> never means eou-istency. ASA PACKER is a Democrat of the \ aHaodigham stripe, and yet be cxpee'g the Union loving people of Pennsylvania t , fleet him in opposition to a gallant soldier, who was perilling his life on the battle-field while he (Packer) was hobnobbing with rebel.- in Europe. PACKER'S sympathies, before and during the was, were all given to the Southern wing of the Democracy. In 180.) he supported Breckinrid.e in or; ■ ili m to Douglas, and during the war, wlivn even a word from a man of his influence would have helped the Union cause, he was silent. EVERY Republican will appreciate the importance of the present campaing, in view of the fact that the election of lYrshb g would give the Democracy tho control of tin Snpretu : Court of the State, and enabU them again, as last year, to deluge us with fraudulent naturalization papers. V HIT.E the Democracy in almost ever; State is making progress towards accepting the issues decided by the late war, and ceasing their opposition to colored suffrage, the Bourbons of Pennsylvania are enteric upon a great campaign with no principle-, no creed, nor anything except abuse of the negro and the denial of his rights. ASA PACKER is taid to be the "\\ orkiuo man's candidate." Who chucked him in o the Lehigh river? llis own workmen. What for? Attempting to compel them to work at starvation wages. Will the workingmen be stupid enough to support a man who respects th ir right- only when he is com pelled to do so at the ri-k of his own life ? We think not. THE officers of the Lehigh Valley Rail way deny that the company has c ut ibuti I a dollar in any way to the L high Uuiver i ty, or that Judge Packer ever negotiated a lean for them in Europe What railway company was it then, or was there any, which was really saddled with the univer.ri ty subscription here; fore attributed to Mr. Packer? THE Democratic leaders, look upon poli tics as a gambler does upon a game of card.- —cheat whenever you can. Did you ever know a Democrat politician venture a pro test against any infamy of his party ? When organized petjury i- employed to override the numerical superiority of a community, did you ever hear a D: m< era tic voice raised against the desecration ? "CAN a leopard change its spots ?'' quer ies the punster. '"Yes," he answers him self, "if he don't like one place he can go to another. It is pretty much, so with tho I Democratic party to-day, for in almost every State the party has a different platform, so that if a Democrat don't like the platform in one State, all he has to d > is to cross the border into another. "You pays your money and takes your choice." DURING tho war, while Geary was lead ing his White Star Division, Packer was in j Europe expre-.-ing his sympathy with th Confederacy. Hi infamous assertion that he would rather-ce Jt-ff.rson Davi- Presi dent of the United State? than Abraham Lincoln, is a- notorious as the fact of hi? bitter hostility to the Reconstruction acts and the ratification of the Fifteenth Amend mcnt. THE C lsiirman of the Republican State Central Committee intends making ; vigorous campaign, and speakers will be in the field early in September. Gov. Geary ar.d Hon. John Scott arc announced to speak at several places. A number oi eminent speakers will canvass the State. Let the Republicans put their shoulders to the wheel and the election of Geary will be readily secured. IT APPEARS that the money for Mr. Asa Packer's half million endowment of the Lehigh I niver-ity, did not cotne out of his own pocket, but was paid by a railway company, in which he was and is interested, the inducement and consideration therefor being the succesJ'ul negoiiaticn, by that gentleman, of a loan of some millions for the Company from English capitalists. This is a queer story, but ifeis so confidently told, down in the Lehigh Valley, as to demand new evidence before we can consent to credit the reported munificence. THREE years ago Hie-ter Clymer, of Berks, was the candidate of tho Democrats for Governor. He was a young man of noble and gtnerou; impulses, and much more liberal in his political views than Packer, but he was backed by the Copper head wing of the Democratic party and that was enough to defeat him. Now the Democ racy present Asa Packer a regular Old Hunker, — a Breckearidge Democrat, and a thorough bred Copperhead, who was just as bitter against the 1 nion men during the war as the Rebels themselves. Are the people of Pennsylvania going to endorse that sort of a man, merely because ho is rich? We rather think not. CARLOTTO is not the only victim of Bona parte's ill fated ambition. Senatar Salazer, ex-Minis ter of Maximilian, has been for some time io the lunatic asylum at Wash ington, while his wife lives in the utmost destitution at Georgetown. Salazar was a statesman and financier of remarkable at tainments. His fortune having been con fiseated by Mexico, aud he having taken to heart the tuisfoi tunes of Maximilian, whose cause he had warmly espouted, his mind has succumbed to his misfortunes. Terrible Calamity. The inns* terrible calamity that has ever happened in our State, occurred at Ply mouth, Luzerne county, on Monday la.*L The coalbroaker of the Avondalc mine at th-it place, caught fite and the shaft of the mine became choked with burning rubbish- Over two hundred men and hoys were in j the mine at the time, all of whom perished. The origin ofthe fire lias been a: -rrtain d to he as follows: On M relay morning, ash usual, a fire was kindled in the furnae -ituated in a chamber off from a gangway < f the mine, about 150 feet from lite fco-tom of •he shaft, the object of the fire being to tro •luoe a draft which ventil-.red the mine. The fire was started with wood, and tho blase ;'ot fire to the gas in the shaft, and the flam spread to the breaker, which was instantly :-1 on fir,*. The timbers from tlw breaker ai 1 building above falling into the shaft si t lite to the lining of tho shaft, ann thus pre vented all entrance or exit from the mine. Mr. Archbold, considered competent, itithoritv, is fully of the opinion that all life in tho mine was destroyed very soon after ihtiro began—that the etiti/e force of the heat c.iid flame drew dircclly into the mine, swe< ping the whole extent of the workings at with the besom of destruction The ac curacy of this theory may he said to be do tuonstrated beyond qutstirn by the discov. ry made lu-A evening that the earea.- > of the two dead mules, which he about fifty yards from the month of the shaft, are crasie i over with soot a quarter of an inch thick. But if this fact had left any ground for hope, it must have been dissipated by the un fortunate operations of yesterday, which during the whole day tended directly to quench whatever spark of life might pe -ibly stiil have lingered and cowered in some re mote nook ofthe workings. An entrance into tlie mine was made on Wednesday, morning at three o'clock. Tin chambers were reached without serious diffi culty. The first body discovered was that of Mr. F:eelo. Further out. in the most r mote chamber, an appalling spectacle e sentcd itself to the explorers. There, i a heap, and in all sorts of positions in which their last agonies bad placed them, b y t! bodies of 202 men, dead, not a vesti; "of a being v.sible in the countenance or f-nn of any of the unfortunate men who had ni death so untimely and horrible. The wii : xeitement prevailed at the entrance to tl shaft, and the shrieks ofthe Frit nds of th ■ d. ad as the bodies were brought up I d afening. Nothing can approximate to at! E.i; of the scene. No pen can portray it. pent up grief of those who still hop*: ti against agony. The endearing and t* n ! r words of the mother or wife as she gra-j i the lifeless form of her son or hu-band, a: tried to bring it again to life, refu-ing ' * believe it could be dead, and defending I against ail attempts at removal, touched t!*" stoutest heart. At the latest accountsm of the bodies hud been brought up out of the mine. A correspondent of the New York Tribune writing from Plymouth, under date ol tb Bth iost . gives this account of the outran.- info the mine, and the incidents ot arring io and about the place . About eight o'clock this morning the fir-t door of the gangway was Ir ken in an 1 sixty bodies were found there. Their situation was awful; fathers lay stiff in d-aib w th arms about their departed sons. Some were also kneeling, as though in prayer: >n r:g men were hand in hand with tlu-ir lVl:ow>. The pickaxes and shovel- which t' ,• lnd used in making an embankment to prevent he entrance of foul air, lay on one side. It seemed, then, that they had fled a few st ; -, when in an agony they fill in one anotfa arms, suffocated by the deadly damp. In another chamber every man was with ot a sliirt. They had stripped themselves -• clothes to use them in fi ling upcrcvu-e-aud ranriies- One man had pu shed a part of" his garment into an aperture, when a gut ofthe gas rushed through and strangled turn 'o death. \\ agon load* of coffins tin,- tie to id, and litters filled with sheeted dead p'i-s along the line every few minutes. As they re brought nut of the tunnel, an inquest i ht-M; the dead are exposed for recognition; .i d. when one is identifi 1, the Justice calls ••ut his mime and home; his friends take the body and convey it to their homes. Already the doz n mules have caused a insirffWfrHlc stench, having s— '• j our.-ted. The men who go down to Li-g up the dead, have to pass these care;- and the stench together with the gas. which his not yet been pumped out, mokes it difficult to hrirtg them up. The damnify of the place is not alone that wl,i 'i im presses the spectator. The weeping women and loudly crying children strike the -[ e tator with, sadin sa: but the active t cu* < and the Provision Committee, and tl. poli. and hucksters, and the unemotional miner-', make it painfully obvious that the pre * tit • a time for business and not for mourtiii; along. Forty-five have olrrady been talxn up. One r.f thein showed signs of life. II w:- bleeding and moved. He was found with his face in the water, lying flat, on ti bottom ofthe mine. Efforts arc beir.g ma to r -u itatc him now. The error of the men who, on their as from the pit, Mooday night, report- I that the fire in the ventilating lurnac fwif'ainthe mine was extinguished, was a fatal error. Treating fheir report as true, the mire ma'.* showed that the mo-t favorable eir* .i: through which to drive the air cur: nt created by the fan was that which had ormerly been the "up-cast," or current out *! the niiae. This, of course, led r lit through the furnace. At six in the morn ing a tiri-k current was started through this avenue, and it was not until four in th afternoon that it was discovered that th furnace was a glowing mass af anthn.'-ife, a;:d that for ten hour- the fan intended to ourify the minj had been driving into its depths the full volume of poisonous and oifling gases thrown off by the furnace. Tlie misfortune was terrible", and its o:ih die . iation is found in the probability th t misfortune lmd done its worst even i Jo: the first efforts for relief began. News Irom CoDa—Despitions to the J'a triot Army—Volunteer Outrages. A Southern gentleman who visit d Cuba for the purpose of ascertaining the state Ol affairs for himself arid friends, writes, under laic of September 1, as follow-: — The news of the recent successes of the Cubans mar Puerto I'iiueipe, Sagua La Grande and Los Tuna-, have given an imp ■ tus and new lite to the Patriot cans,. which wid prove irresistible. The exultation ol the Cubans knows no bounds. They are rising <• maw and flocking to the fit-era ting army by hundreds. The Spaniar* - ooenly assert that the revolution ni l be .sue eessfal; that the Ssani-h force is zlmn-t destroyed, tind that Spain cannot send sui ficieut ri inforeemcnts to regain the positi'm - o-t, by these battles. It is reported that the Cubans, in th* -o engagements, fought with great d termina tion and during.and showed a discipline equal to that, of regular troops. The Spanish troops every where are demoralized and ha- a no confidence in their commanders, norhave tho officers confidence in them a* it j., known numbers of the regulars sympathize with the Cubans. The revolution I iton -t -iy believe will succeed, aud the independ * oce of Cu! a be obtained. The outra.es i tterpt trated upon inoffensive and helpless Iteopleby the volunteers and their tm:s.-a -ri.-s are of tlie most revolting character, arid exceed even those perpetrated by the Indi ans on the frontiers of the United Fats '*. Everywhere the evidence of these out rages is to be seen—buildings burned, crops destroyed, and hundreds of homeless starv ing wanderers. Added to this are the rav ages of civil strife, and this ohce beautiful and luxuriant island is now a barren waste : and should the war be prolonged for six months, it will be almost uninhabitable. Even now, all along the eastern coast ofthe island the people are on the very verge < f -t irvation and are dying by fiundr d- ft m di.ease superinduced by want. A U. S. Revenue Officer Shot. PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 6.— About noon to day a party of ruffians went into Keenan's liquor-shop, at the corner of S nth and Arch-sts. . and, after inquiring fix Keen *O, asked, "Where was Brooks? ' .Mr. James J. Brooks, a I uited States Revenue Offi, r, who happened to be present, replied that ho was the man, when one of the ruffians shot him with a revolver; Brooks's wound is probably mortal, as the ball passed through his lungs. The assassins drove to the store in a carriage, and after the deed escaped i>y the same conveyance, driving off at a furious rate. They were traced through the city to l'airmount Park, where all cluu to them was lost. Mr. Brooks was appointed a Govern- i merit detective to prevent illicit distillation, and the a uu't was undoubtedly in revenge fur bis successful efforts in detecting frauds. Gen. Gregory, the I nited States Marshal, has directed his officers to take steps for the arrest of the as-:sina, Mr. Brooks is slid alive, but tlie nature of bis wound venders bis condition critical.
