From a circular, published iu an
other column, it will be seen that
Greeley and other promineut republi
can* are takiug a "new departure
namly, to depart from Grant and hi*
rotten, plundering crew. Every de
cent republican, whose tkirU arc clean
of robbing the government, ia in favor
of defeating Grant aud for the Cincin
nati convention. Will the boucat
rank aud file in the radical rank* ba
governed accordingly?
The M'Clure-Gnty investigation
has ended, aud the committee hat re
ported that M'Clure is entitled to the
•cat by about 1,000 majority. After
this report was read in the Senate, Mr.
M'Clure vu sworn in and took the
•cat previously occupied, through
fraud, by the virtuous radical Gray.
Gray then packed up hi* trap* and
left ilarrisburg, without wailiuf to be
shaved er getting hia boot* blacked.
The fact ia. Gray ought have a teat,
with shaved head in state pri*ou, for
occupying a seat that was obtained by
the most shameftil frauds en recenl.
Since Gray left Harrisburg the sen
ate now stands 16 democrats to 16
republicans, and one independent, M -
Clure. M'Cluro hereotfore belonged
to the radical party, but so far his
votes in the senate are not of a charac
ter that democrats might complain, he
fought a bold fight against radical
fraud and corruption and with the aid
of democrats, right aud justice have
for once triumphed.

The Mifflinduig Telegraph is badly
posted when it asserts that Mr. Jfiller
was in favor of the railroad bill with
the stupid proviso mortgaging the
road to the stockholders and then
authorising the issuing of bonds to
other parties in order to raise money to
complete the road. Mr. J/iller and
every friend of the road {looked upon
that as killing the enterprise, which
was the intention of our men-ber of
the house, a secret enemy of our road,
and it was tacked on in spite of Mr.
Miller's protest

Mr. Meek haviug attempted to kill
the railroad with his famous "stock
holders mortgage" which we exposed
and settled for him so completely in
the Reporter, week before last, we
now give htm the ben6t of our col
umns in trying to show what a saiut
he has been. The above article we
are nat afraid to have read by the
people of Penusvalley, and it needs no
Comment from us, as our people have
already prououuoed their opiuion up
ou it and him.
The "ablest" is careful to keep sileut
on the "stockholders mortgage" pro
viso, sugar coated to kill the road, in
which infamy he was exposed by the
REPORTER, and tha eyes of our peo
ple opened to what Meek was doing
to kill off the road three-fourths grad
ed. The effect of Meek's proviso was
that all contractors aud bauds iu this
valley were making calculations to
quit and go to other port* for employ
ment ; and that is what weuld now be
the state of affairs on the road, had net
the REPORTER exposed the infamous,
sugar coated proviso, and thereby
aroused our people to their danger,
and/ores our "ablest" on a hasty back
track. He must feel pretty sensibly
by this time that he did not succeed in
April-fooling the people of Pennsval
ly by bis sugar-coated, but deadly
proviso.
By misrepresenting the sugar-coated
proviso, a few unthinking were led to
favor it, honestly thinking it was iu
the interest of the mad, until the fraud
was exposed in our columns, a ben a
committee of indignant citizens from
this valley at once called upon the
author, Meek, and forced him to con
sent to have his pet scheme to kill the
road stricken out.
We ask our readers to go back two
months, and they will find the Watch
man week after week pouriug slime
over the bill and bellowiug to our peo
ple to petition against its passage, so
as to kill the road and then hide him
self behind the remonstrances and
throw the blame upon our people. But
no remonstrances came at his bellow
ing, which silence should have satisfied
our officious legislator that our people
had no objection to the 3 million bill
as it passed the senate. Our people
will remember, that tha Watchman
then threatened if ao opposition came
the bill would pass on "the following
Tuesdav." No opposition came and
the "following Tuesday" did not see
the bill passed as promised, but, in
stead, it was choked off by our officious
legislator, in regular legislative roos
ter and pincher style in order to force
a corruption fond te grease its passage.
What then/ Why, when failing t©
call out opposition to tho senate bill,
by misrepresenting it in his newspa
per, for weeks, he prints remonstrances
in hia own office, unsolicited, and has
them sent out Now, why, if he was
a fair representative, did he not also
print petitions for the bill and let the
two go out together? Ab, that did
not suit this hidden Bellefente enemy
of our road and that would uot help
him to kill it He then, failing in his
tricks, tried the famous sugar-coated
proviso, insulting the intelligence of
the people of Pennsvalley by assuming
they would swallow that, he knowing
it was death to our railroad ; really,
how nicely be laid a plan te finish the
road right speedily, and had his trick
not been exposed, our read would now
be lying tu state iu its coffin with bis
sugar-coated proviso for a shroud, and
while its Pennsvalley friends stood
around mouruing over its demise, the
outside world would be laughing down
at them from the top of Nittany moun
tain for again permitting themselves
to be gulled by said Meek.
His insinuations about defrauding,
need no reply—it is the stop thief cry
to distract attention from his own bad
doings—Meek put the finishing touch
es upon bis own character, ours can
not be stained by the base insinua
tions of one whose word when upon
oath honest people weuld hesitate to
take.
Meek's trick having been exposed
and thwarted, the friends of our rail
road maj now look for an energetic
prosecution of the work.

Attested Murder of Two Hitter*—A
Battb for Life.
I l'oughkeepsie. March 7. —A terrible
affair happened near MarlboioUj.li,
' Ulster County, this morning ui the
house of George \N illiain I'urdy who
3 resides seven miles north of Newburg,
e near the tirsl named place. W bile
laboriug under temporary iuaauity
Mr. Purdy made u desperate attempt
to murder his two sisters, lte resided
with his mother, .Mrs. Phmbe Purdy,
and his sister, Miss Klisw Purdy
He was ill from uu epileptic attack,
and |iartially deranged. Auolher sis
ter, Mrs. Anna Coukling, spent the
uight at the homisUad to assit in
taking car* of her brother. The three
ladies occupied a led on the (100t 1 of
the silting room. Purdy slept in a
room opening into this room. At 4
•'clock this morning George entered
the room occupied by the ladies and
stopped the clock, sayiug that its tick
ing annoyed him and prevented hi*
sleeping. A few miuutes after return
ing to his room he again entered the
sitting-room and threw himself flat on
the floor and remaiued motionless.
The sisters took him up aud laid him
on their bed aud then went iuto his
room and occupi d his bed. The
mother remaiued with him. Iu a few
minutes he started up from the bed,
seized a fire-shovel, and went to the
room where the sisters were. Opening
the doov he shouted : " I'm going t
kill you both. The next place I will
meet you is at the bar of God," and
commenced striking them on the head
with the 6hovel. Then throwing that
dowu he seized each by the throat and
tried to choke them to death. AfteJ
a terrible struggle they freed them
selves from bis grasp and escaped to
the sitting-room. lie followed them
and the struggle was renewed. The
stove was overturned and the hous*
was set on fire. At length the sisters
succeeded in breaking away from the
| maniac, Miss Purdy ruuning out ofi
the front dooy aud M™* Coukling
starting for a rear door. Purdy pur
sued the latter, and having got a ra
zor out of tbo bureau drawer, over
took her just as she got outside of the
doer. Here auother terrible struggle
took plane, the madman endeavoring
to cut his sister's throat and she bat
tling for life. In the effort to get the
razor from him she received two cuts,
one in the right aim just missing the
main artery and the other in the hand,
but he drew the razor across her
throat, makiug a terrible gash, laying
bare the windpipe and the root of the
tongue but missing the main arteries.
While this struggle was going on Miss
Purdy had run to the houses of several
of the neighbors and alarmed them.
The first one of them to reach the spot
1 was Daniel Vau Orsdall, who on hear-
iug the alarm bad dresMtl himself as
quickly as possible and followed Miss
Purdy to the bouse. She reached it
first and met the brother. Having,
as he supposed, finished Mrs, Conk
ling, ha attacked Hiss Purdy, and
seising her by the hair of her head,
threw her down on the ground. Mr.
Van Orsdall coming up at this time,
he knocked the brother down, and af
ter another struggle mannged, with
the help of his young sou and Mies
I'urdy, to secure the madman. Hut
it took their uuitod stre iglh to hold
him, and ther feared that Mrs. Conk
ling would bleed to death before other
help could arrive. At length, how
ever, mora of the neighbors came,
George was tied, and Mrs. Conk ling
was cared for. She had made her
way iutothe house after receiving her
wounds, and the sister knowing that
the building was on fire, was afraid
that her mother and sister would be
burned up, but the flames were soon
extinguished and all danger from that
source was averted. In the course of
the morning an officer arrived from
A/arlborough—about a mile north of
the scene of tragedy—and George was
handcuffed. Ho went to bed and re
| fused to sav a word to any one, but
lay in the bed as if asleep. Tomor
row he will be taken to the State
Hospital at Poughkeepsie

European mail advices state that
the town of in the Cau

by a recent earthquake. The number
of persons killed was one hundred aud

(Juror Story or Superstition.
The Berlin, Wiscohaio Journal lia*
this story : "A man who rcaided in
this city has related to us a strange
storv of superstition and barbarity,
which he claimed had happeurd in
thts city recently. Our iufuimmit wa*
a (ieriean, and the parties in this story

is substantially as follows: About

cave birth ta a child. About two
days afterward she dird and was bur
ied in the city cemctry. After about
five weeks the wife of the brother of
the dead woman was taken very sick,
and it was thought she would die.
"It appears that there is a supersti

if one of a family dies, unless the head
of the cor [we is cut off the whole fam
ily will be likely lu follow In rapid,
succession. However, if after one ls
died, another one is taken sick, it
some of the blood is procured from-tbe

patient he will recover. In accord

body, cut off the bead, and look (Vurti
it bfood and other liquid, which he ad
ministered ta bis wife as medicine ;
that shortly after this the sick woman's
malady assumed the form of small
pox, from whirh she recovered, and
is now entirely well. Our informant
claimed tht many witnesses ceuld b#

from what we learned we are led to

Horrible Crime in Delaware.
Wilmington, March 27. —A hor
rib'.e case of outrage occurred nbeul
two and a half miles south of hers
last night. A negro named William
Dennia forcibly entered the house ol
A/rs. Thomson, a white woman, while
her husband was absent. He chased
her out of doors, chaught her by hci
hair, dragged her hack to the house
and up stairs, and there after a pro
longed and desperate struggle, in
which all the furniture in the room
was broken, and her clothing torn otf.
he outraged her. He then pulled out
a razor to murder her to prevent her
testifying against him, when she broke
away and lied to a neighbor's house,
falling exhausted on entering. The
brute tore great piecca of flush from
her arms and shoulders with his teeth.
An excited crowd of neighbors and a
squad of police arc hunting the man,
who is still at large. J/rs. Thompson

The long-ex peeled companion tu "TKN

and will shortly appear. The popularity
and great usefulness of this standard tem

sales that havo been made,—much greater
it is believed, than that of any book ef it*
clas* ever published. Who has not read
lliia remarkable book, so true to nature, so
intense in effect, and so terrible in it* mor
al, and who that ha* read it ha* not wished
for a companion. To satisfy this widely
expressed desire, the author has undertak
en and just c<>mplot<i a new volume, that
unmasks the liquor-seller and his accursed
traffic in away to startle and arouse the
public.
The new book entitled "TIIHKK YKAK* IN
A MAX-TRAP." It give* an inside view ot
tho liquf r trade, and portray* tho terrible
effect* of that traffic in a series of life pic
lures, full of the inlenc*t interest, with
the skill and fidelity to nature so eminent
ly charactere*tic of the author. _ The book
cannot fail to make a strung impression,!
and, as a new auxiliary in the cause of

There is a very pretty stale of af

those who bad of (he reception
of the Japanese. fhey are said In
have managed the affair so as tu uf:;
friid nlmqft suvl please uo
one. Finst. Mori is offended because
the Ambassadors presented their cre
dentials directly to Mr. Kish instead
■of passing them through his bauds.
The Kmbaiay is ffendgd l>swue

Newman is highly offended because
the Prcsideut neglected to invite (he
Embassy |o jifftrl.itu pioaoh oil "The

great power, prepared expressly for
the occasion. The congregation are
offended at having arrayed themselves
in their most gorgeous apparel in vain.
Mr. Colfax is supposed to be jil.u of-'

great assiduity for some time, and
now finds his labor lost. Altogether,
the officials at Washington seem to be
"progressing backward" very rapidly
