Themas F. Bayard.
A life of Themas F. Bayard by Ed
ward Spencer, of Maryland, just issued
by the Appleton's, presents him as "a
man upon whom the hopes of very many
are concentrated that he may become in
the near future the leader of the republic
backward from perilous paths te the
better ways of old." This is strictly
true, and these who have this hope are
net all of them Democrats. Mr. Bayard
enjoys the highest consideration from
political Mends and fees. His bearing
has richly earned it. He is a statesman
worthy of the purest days of the republic,
in which there is no guile. He has
always been a firm and consistent Demo Deme
crat, but his honest and earnest conduct
has wen for him the esteem of every
party. "Whatever may be said of the
present result at Cincinnati it is the fact
that the hope of his fellow Democrats is
te see him some day in the presidential
office. They will be proud of luuiasa
candidate and they will be proud of his
administration. There may be that in
his record which may make the Cincin
nati convention deem it prudent te
postpone his nomination te a fu
ture period; although the possi
ble prejudice which would ' be thus
deferred te is net, in our judgment,
worthy of the sacrifice. It is feared that
the speech made by Senater Bayard in
his early youth, and at the outset of the
war, may be used te his injury among
the voters as a basis for a charge of dis
loyalty. "Better," he thought, " while
deeply deploring the revolution which
had severed eleven states from the
Union, if a peaceful accommodation was
impossible, that the discontented states
be allowed te withdraw than run the
awful risk of such a war." But this was
likewise the thought then of many men of
all parties. It is similar in sentiment te
General Scott's "wayward sisters depart
in peace" speech and te the like utter
ances of Herace Greeley. At its worst
it was an error of judgment. It is ab
surd te suppose that the people can be
persuaded that it came te Themas F.
Bayard through any lack of patriotism.
They might have been induced te think
se in the heated, bygone days ; but in the
present calmness of feeling and in the
face of the record Jlr. Bayard has made
for himself, se admirable in the opinion
of political friend and fee, what Demo
crat can reasonably fear that the people
can be persuaded te distrust him as a
presidential candidate through this ut
terance of long age. "We have no such
fear and confidently believe that it is
In Democratic circles Mr. Bayard has
been criticised because of his assent te
the creation of the abortive criminal
commission ; and this tee may be set
down with reason as an error of judg
ment. But his biographer exhibits the
state of feeling under which Mr. Bayard
acted, and it furnishes abundant excuse
for, if it does net fully justify his action.
He was filled with apprehension at what
he saw and heard at "Washington. Mere
than half the entire army of the United
Slates was collected there. Mr. Bayard's
fear was the country was te be Mexi
can! zed and therefore ' addressed all his
energies te the preparation of a remedy
in the form of law." The remedy he
approved was net the remedy which the
occasion demanded, but it is true, as his
biographer states, that he assumed "in
the essential nobility of his nature, that
ether men would be actuated by the
same motives as these which compelled
him te de what he did."
Admitting against Mr. Bayard these
two mistakes in judgment at two periods
of his life wide apart, lie is charged with
all that can be said against his fitness for
the executive office. In the supreme
qualifications which he has shown for its
vast responsibilities, these objections will
be held by the voters te be insignificant.
AVe de believe that there is enough geed
sense in the people te make them anxious
te endorse a man who has in his daily
walk in their sight se universally gained
their esteem. If Mr. Seymour is net te
be had Mr. Bayard may be safely taken.
It is said that Mr. Tilden does net favor
his nomination and it is no doubt se.
He is net of the Tilden kind. If Mr.
Tilden had been of his kind he would
new be our president.
A Funny Friend. "
Senater Cameren, it appears, has turn
ed a frowning lace upon his friend Hart
ranft, and refused te move his confirma
tion as collector, notwithstanding he had
premised Hartranft te aid him. This
premise, however, was made before the
Chicago convention, the result of which
was se disappointing te Mr. Cameren
that he naturally wants te make it dis
appointing te his friends ; a man in
misery likes company; and it may have
been en this principle that the senator
hangs up his friend, the would-be-collector.
But, perhaps, there is a better
reason for .it. Mr. Hartranft professes
net te knew what it is that has soured
Donald against him He declares that
he is very much grieved thereat ; which
is very natural ; it is becoming te be
grieved when a fat office is taken from
one's grasp. Mr. Hartranft says he lias
been looking forward te this comfortable
place for a long while, and that it was a
part of the bargain when he took the
postelfice that he should have Collector
Tutten's old shoes when his term of oc
cupancy expired. This his friend the
senator then agreed te ; and new he
don't. It is very distressing, and enough
te make Hartranft weep. He. has net
deserved it. Indeed, he never deserved
anything ; but he has had a great deal.
Somebody has been feeding him all his
life. He feels that he has an inalienable
right te be fed. The trouble seems te be
that he leeks around in tee many quar
ters for his feed. Cameren was feeding
him ; se was McManes; and new that
there is war te the knife between
these tee, peer Mr. Hartranft is in treu
ble. He has te cheese under which king
te serve. But the curious thing about it
is that Mr. -McManes apparently was for
Tutten; and Cameren net being for
McManes, Hartranft ought te have
found grace in his sight. Perhaps it is
.only pure devilishnessin the senator after
all ; or, perchance, the unit rule is at the
bottom of; it. The unit rule is well known
te be the senator's meat and drink. He
has net found it very nourishing. It dis
agreed with him at Chicago and he had
I te cast it up. If he could Have kept it
he says lie would have nominated brant.
Very likely; and se lie would if he had
marched the grand army into the hall
and turned out the anti-Grant delegates
in Cremwelliau style. His rump con
vention would have nominated Grant.
But Donald did net have his way. His
friends did net stand by him ; and he
spits en his friends spitefully.

Editorial despatch te the Intkllieuncih.
Cincinnati, June 19. Mr. Seymour is
peremptorily withdrawn as a candidate
for the Democratic nomination for the
presidency through the columns of the
Enquirer this city. Mr. Tilden is univer
sally considered as retired. Senater Thur
man sticks, but the Ohie delegation is tee
much divided te give him a cordial support
and it is net expected that he will receive
the nomination. The decision of the su
preeo court of Indiana by which that
state is put in the October list will help
Hendricks, as his nomination under this
state of affairs would transfer the pre
liminary skirmish round te where the
Democrats would be able te fight at an
advantage. "Madisen's" sketch of Judge
Field published iu the Intelligence

The New Yerk Times' Criticism.
Frem the New Yerk Times, Feb. 19, 1873.
Of these who are new members and who
purchased Credit Mebilier stock the com
niittee say that had it been proven that
they knew the character of the stock they
bought their act would have been a cor
rupt one, and they would have been de
serving of severe condemnation by the
Heuse. Of the members thus referred te,
Messrs. Kelley and Garfield present a
most distressing figure. Their participa
tion in the Credit Mebilier affair is compli
cated by the most unfortunate contradic
tions of testimony, which the committee de
net undertake te unravel. The only possi
ble comment en their cases is that had
they taken a perfectly upright course in
the matter and refused te have anything
te de with the stock, no occasion for con
tradiction could have arisen.
We de net agree with the committee in
its lenient assumption that such knowl
edge was net possessed by the congress
men who purchased the stock. If they did
net knew its character they must has been
curiously deaf and blind te what was going
en about them. With these who knew
anything about the Union Pacific railroad
in the winter of 18C7 the purpose and origin
of the Credit Mebilier were se well known
that they may fairly be said te have been
notorious. Certainly, congressmen who
took stock in a scheme te cheat the gov
ernment, under these circumstances, de
serve some well-defined measure of con cen con
dematien, and we regret that the commit
tee recommend none. AVe trust the Heuse
will remedy the emission.
Frem the X. Y. Times, February 20. 1873.
Congressman ought te have known of
the nature of the stock before investing in
it. It was their business te inform them
selves, and they could very easily have
done se. The character of the Credit
Mebilier was no secret. The source of its
profits was very well known at the time
congressmen bought it. Though Oakes
Ames may have succeeded iu concealing
his own motive, which was te bribe con
gressmen, their acceptance of the stock
was net en that account innocent. The
dishonor of the act, as a participation in
an obvious fraud still remains.
Moreover, the account is net settled,
even if it is assumed that the members
who took the stock knew neither its char
acter nor Oakes Ames's bad motive in
ell'ering it. Seme of them have indulged
in testimony with reference te the matter
which has been contradicted. The com
mittee errs gravely in net probing such
cases te the core. It distinctly rejects the
testimony of several of the members.
This can only be done en the ground that
it is untrue, But untrue testimony given
under oath is morally, if net legally, per
jury. The committee finds members
guilty of this offence, but does net see its
way clear te recommend any punishment
for it. It is the clear duty of Congress te
visit with punishment all who took
Credit Mebilier stock from Oakes Ames.
The Tribune Criticism.
Frem the New Yerk Tribune, Feb. 19, 1873.
With one accord they all did what ?
explain their connection with it ? admit
that they held the stock, but insist that
they held it honestly, or that when they
suspected it was of unquestionable morali
ty they get rid of it at once? Net by any
means. They dropped it in their tracks,
or cither by themselves or by their friends
denied utterly all knowledge of it. And
the people did then what they will never

word for it aud denounced the story as a

fooled around all pertinent inquiry and

scapegoats instead of punishing half a hun hun

Read the evidence. With varying degrees
of guilt or guilty knowledge, every man of
them, with but one exception (Mr. Blaine)
has been obliged te confess that at some
time he held this stock, and at some time
under stress of conscience, let us hope.

We arc indebted te Mr. S. F. Rathven,
late of this city, for the initial number of
the Mountain J fail, printed in the city of
Seuth Arkansas, Colerado. Don't consult
your geographies or guide books te ascer
tain its location, for you will net find it.
A month age there was net a stick of
timber en the present town site. New it
has regularly laid out streets, forty-five or
fifty stores, hotels, a bank, restaurant,
billiard room, bearding houses, a rail
road depot and a newspaper office.
Among the business firms advertised
in the Mail is that of "Rathven
& Ce., dealers in hay, grain and produce."
Within the first three weeks of the town's
existence ever $30,000 worth of town lets
were sold at prices ranging from $200 te
$800 each. The town is all bustle and
business, and mechanics, especially car
penters and builders, are in great demand.
As an instance of the manner in which
business is rushed through in the new set
tlement we publish below the experience
of the editor of the Mail iu getting out the
first number of his paper :
"It is a well known fact that Jeb was a
patient man. But lie never undertook the
job of moving a printing office that had
been knocked into a cocked hat for a year,
setting it up in a new place and getting
out a paper inside of a week. We would
rather have "biles" from this time until
Gabriel's trumpet sounds than te de the
job a second time.
At one o'clock en Friday afternoon May
28, the first lick was struck en our build
ing. In two hours from that time we had
our press set up en the fleer while the car
penters were hammering and sawing ever
our heads. Upen examination we found
that the type was all in pi, advertising and
column rules gene or se damaged as te be
useless, leads broken or bent, cases full of
dirt and the wind bringing mere of it in
through the cracks and knot holes. But
June 5 was the day we set for the first is
sue of the Mountain Mail, and issue it
must. We telegraphed te Chicago for
column rules and they came iu en geed
time. Paper and ink had te be secured iu
like manner, but the latter has net ar
rived. We sent for a heading for our
paper te be sent by mail, but it failed te
come te time. Mr. Gee. A. Smith, one of
our enterprising my goods merchants,
came te our relief by drafting the let
ters en a pine beard for a heading.
Mr. B. F. Montgomery whittled the head
out with his pocket-knife and we put it in
the form and went te press. It is net a
handsome head but it has some peculiari
ties. Fer instance, the M in Mail seems
te have met with an accident which par
tially disabled it. And then some of the
blurs around it remind us of the dark
spots in some people's characters. We
charge these spots te the peer quality of
ink used. It was some that we chanced te
find in an old lard bucket under the fleer
of the old office in Cleora. By softening
it with turpentine, lard oil, petroleum and
the sun we managed te get it se it would
spread, and have spread it before you.
The paper does net present as clear an
appearance as we would like. We will
make it leek better in future.
This is net an apology, but an explana
tion." The new town is situated in a valley en
the right bank of the Arkansas river about
a mile above the Seuth Arkansas. It is
said te be one of the prettiest locations for
a town that could be found. Just across
the river te the north ,aud east are the
foothills, covered with green, while te the
south and west are the mountain peaks,
covered with snow.
The distance from Seuth Arkansas te
neighborhood points is as fellows : Poncha
Springs, which will some day rival Manitou
as a pleasure resort five miles ; Maysville,
eleven miles ; Arborville, sixteen miles ;
Alpine, twenty miles. It is sixty miles te
Gunnison city, one hundred and ten te
Lake City, sixty te Canen City, one hun
dred te Pueblo, sixty-five te Lcadville and
two handled and twenty te Denver.
Argument of Yesterday Hew Seme
body Vn( Sat Down Upen Sir.
Sbaplf " Streng Preseu-
tatieu of the Case.
The disbarment appeal of the editors of
the Intelligencer came up for argument
before the supreme court at llarrisburg
yesterday at 1 o'clock, and Mr. Shapley
opened the argument for the appellants.
Before he did se the paper books were
handed te the judges, as is customary.
The Lancaster judges filed with their ar
gument a supplemental paper book, which
was composed entirely of the articles
which appeared in the Intelligencer
editorially and otherwise since the pro
ceedings taken by the judges agaiust the
editors It was preceded by a note which
explained the object of the publication te
be te acquaint the supreme bench with
the feeling of Steinman & Ilensel towards
the judges below. Chief Justice Shars Shars Shars
woed took occasion te say that it was a
very extraordinary and improper docu
ment te hand te ihe court. He said that
he would net read a word of it, and con
demned the proffer of it with a decision
and emphasis which gave a very lively
shaking up te Mr. Reynolds, who repre
sented the judges below ; Attorney Gen
eral Palmer being ill and unable te be
present Mr. Reynolds get en his feet
and stated the idea with which the pam
phlet had been prepared and offered, but
the chief justice failed te be impressed
with its sufficiency. The " supplemental
answer" had been shown te the appel
lant's counsel only a few minutes before
the case was attached, and they made no
objection te its beinr offered, knowing
well that Mr. Reynolds would seen find a
hornet or two buzzing about his cars. If
there is anything the chief justice
hates it is te have matters presented
te the court which arc net en the
record. The layman will understand that
cases arc heard in the supreme court, en
appeal, upon the facts as they appear en
the record of the court below ; and if any
further information is wanted, as the
chief justice reminded Mr. Reynolds, per
mission must be sought from the court te
secure it in a regular way.
Mr. Shapley, as may be imagined, cheer
fully awaited the conclusion of the chief
justice's remarks, and then took occasion
te point out, in the regular paper book of
the judges below, matters that were im
properly stated and that had no existence
in the record. He proceeded te deliver a
very strong and effective argument after
first reading the rule takeu upon the ap
pellants and their answer, during which a
faint smile seemed te hover ever the faces
of the judges as they listened te the very
remarkable narrative by your learned judge
of the questions and answers interchanged
between him and the victims of his wrath.
Mr. Shapley proceeded te show that the
comment of the editors of the Intelligen
cer had been made by them as editors,
out of court, and concerning a case already
ended, and fur all these reasons?, any one
being sufficient in itself, they could net be
thus summarily punished in their capacity
as lawyers. Their offence, if any, was a
libel, for which the judges injured had
their remedy at law. lie sustained the
positions with numerous apt citations, and
showed that no attempt had ever been
made in any court se flagrantly vielative
of every principle of law as was this one.
He called the attention of the court te the
false statement made in the paper book or
the ether side that the appellants confessed
that their charge against the judges below
was false, and showed that the very re
verse was the fact, and that it must be as
sumed by the court that the publication
they made was true, since there was noth
ing en the record disputing its truth.
He further showed that the
gravamen of the charge made was against
the three attorneys who were accused of
deceiving the court below and prostitut
ing the machinery of justice te these base
ends, while the accusation against the
judges was simply that they permitted
their partisan partiality towards these Re
publican attorneys te stay their hand
against them. And then he asked what
right these judges had te be supersensitive
concerning such an assault upon them
when they refrained from resenting the
admitted offence of these three attorneys
in obtaining the release of their
client by falsehood and fraud. When Mr.
Shapley was making these sharp comments
upon the conduct of Messrs. Eshleman,
Brown and Jehnsen, everybody naturally
looked at Judge Mcrcur, who remained en
the bench, notwithstanding his relationship
te one of them. The chief justice, turn
ing te Judge Mercur, who sat beside him,
was overheard te ask whether the District
Attorney Eshleman referred te was his
son-in-law. Judge Mercur bore the fire
with commendable equinamity, but
hardly could have liked the position.
Mr. Shapley's speech was much admired
and he received many congratulations
upon it. It was plionegmpnically re
ported, as will be the entire proceedings,
and the Intelligencer will be able te de it
justice by a mere complete representation
of it than in this hastily written sketch.
When he concluded, Mr. Reynolds asked
te be permitted te begin iu the morning as
it was within ten minutes of adjourning
time. The chief justice assented, but
took occasion te ask him with a smile en
his face, who was referred te in the
paper book when he and his associates
claimed te appear as amic is curite; whether
they assumed the character of friends of
this court or the court below. Mr.
Reynolds hastened te explain ; the chief
justice, of course, knew very well, and
may have only intended an innocent joke,
or mere probably had it in his mind te
prod the court below. Cel. McClure fol fel
lows Mr. Reynolds in the morning.

Serenth, Annual Commencement A Bril
liant Entertainment Award or Premising.
A large and deeply-interested audience
assembled in Fulton opera house yester
day afternoon te witness the closing ex
ercises of the .seventh annual commence
ment of the Sacred Heart academy, a first
class institutieu for the education of young
ladies and misses, under the able manage
ment of the Sisters of the holy Cress.
Right Rev. J. F. Shanahan, bishop of
the diocese of llarrisburg, presided, Rev.
Father Antony Kaul, of St. Antheny's
church was master of ceremonies, and in
the audience we noticed Father Uickey of
St. Mary's, Father Gretemeyer of St.
Jeseph's, Father Christ of St. Antheny's
Father Fein of St. Peters, Elizabcthtewn
and Father Koppernagle of Harrisburg.
There were also present many prominent
citizens, Protestants as well as Catholics.
The pregramme consisted of vocal and
instrumental musie,cssays,addrcsses,an al
legorical drama accompanied with beautiful
tableaus : and the distribution of premiums
te the pupils; several parts were interwoven
in such a way as te avoid monotony, and
save te the audience the time that would
have been lest, had the tableaus been
sentcd in unbiekcn order.
Intend, however of following the printed
pregramme, we will divide the exercises
into their three constituent parts : First the
tableaux and the allegorical drama; Second
the musical and orateria! exercises, and
Third the conferring of degrees.
The tableaus were very effectively ar
ranged. The first represented Allium
(the human soul, personated byMissLeih
crnian,) surrounded by a tin eng of pure
and beautiful beings. At the clese of this
tableau, Anima appears upon the stage,
accompanied by Wisdom(Miss C. Murray)
and Innocence (Miss L. Haberbush), who
held converse with Anima and instruct
and admonish her from their different
standpoints. The second tableau was a
very gorgeous one and represented Anima
magnificently arrayed encompassed by
Pride (Miss C. Ilepting) and the several
senses Taste, Hearing, Feeling, Smell
and Light, personated respectively by
Misses Stauffer, Anders Witzel, Floed and
Slaymaker, all of whom tempt Anima te
the enjoyment of sensuous pleasures.
Yielding te the temptation of the senses
the Seul revels in them until it becomes
surfeited, and then its tempters taunt and
mock it, and the place is supplied by the
gaunt figure of Despair (Miss Cellahan).
In the fourth tableau the Seul while under
the influence of Despair, is visited by Hu
mility (Miss Obert) and Faith (Miss Ken
nard), and under their guidance is led te
Charity (Miss Wade), Hepe (.Miss Hart)
and Obedience (.Miss Wendereth), and
through these agencies is redeemed as rep
resented in the final tableau. The spec
tacular drama was very well put upon the
stage, the tableaus were impressive, and
the several actei-s performed their various
parts most creditably.
The musical and literary part of the
pregramme embraced the following :
Overture " Zumpa " en two pianos,
Miscss A. Wendereth, S. Gruiubly, K.
Kennard and M. Saffcr.

Parting chorus by the graduates.
All of the musical selections, both vocal

the valedictory address was well composed
and effectively delivered.
Then followed (te the pupils at least)
the most interesting part of the ceremonies

uates and pupils of the school were ar
ranged in a semicircle en the stage, at the
right hand front coiner of which sat

The accident, by which Jehn Schlauch
came near loosing his life by the falling of
a telephone pole, recalled te mind the fact
that our city is being rapidly studded
with these rather unsightly but useful
appurtenances. Meeting Jacob llatz en the
street yesterday we asked him hew many
telegraph and telephone poles he had put
up during the seventeen years he has been
in the business, and his answer was that
he had put up ever 22,000 in all parts of
the country, many of them being of im
mense weight and height, and in putting
up this great number of poles he had
never met with an accident in which any
one was hurt. He was net concerned in
putting up the pole that fell yesterday aud

engaged in another part of the city.
