Hancasiet. intelligencer. MONDAY EVENING. JUNE 22, 1880. Greatness and Goodness. Xapoleen Bonaparte has taken rank in history as one of the greatest men of the world, but history will need te be revised te accord with the latest information as te his character, unless we can admit that the greatest of men may also be the meanest, and that greatness and virtue liave no part or let with each ether. It has been said of Lord Bacen, whose rank as one of the world's great men can never be disputed, that he was also the meanest of mankind. In that day Xapoleen had net lived, by whose side Bacen was noble. We fear that it will have te be admitted that greatness in the world's eye does net come se invariably as it should te the men who remember and act upon the lessens of goodness and mo rality that are taught them at their mother's knee. All ever the world geed parents are striving te de their duty te their children by teaching them te be truthful, honest, unselfish and magnani mous in every action of their life ; and the geed children are laboring hard te learn the lessen. It is net according te their nature. The self-control they strive te attain is hard te reach. They de want te gratify their appetites, but their teach; ing won't let them. They are being m ucated te be geed men ; and if they pro fit by their instruction they will make themselves agreeable te their fellow men, geed citizens, sons, brothers and hus bands ; but, also, all this is net helping them te be great. Te be great and te cut a great figure in the eyes of the world is the natural aim of every ambitious boy ; and it must demoralize him sadly te realize that all the lessens of goodness he is learning are leaden clogs en his up ward march te such magnitude of fame as Napeleon wen. This may be why se many of our men de net remember their childhood's teach ings in their daily walk and conversation. The wickedness of the world is increas ing every day with the increase of popu lation ; all the parental teaching that can be ground into the youthful mind won't diminish this wickedness, for the lessens are but imperfectly taught and learned at the best ; but the increase of it is due no doubt te the fact that men perceive that the lessens of goodness are net always the ones that lead them on ward and upward in a career of worldly prosperity and in their aspirations after men's applause. Men de net applaud goodness always ; they applaud success. And te succeed it does seem that men must be vicious. They must be selfish, else they cannot thrust themselves up ward upon the top of these against whom they contend for supremacy. Take the candidates who struggle new for the presidential nomination; the one who succeeds is elevated at the cost of the many who fail. ' And this is the mildest way of putting the selfishness that leads men te struggle against their fellows. That is a degree of selfishness which the most pious of men may properly gratify. It is that degree of selfishness which is a virtue instead of a vice. "Without it men's energies would be paralyzed. There would be no struggle for bread. Nene would enjoy mere of life's luxuries than another. It might be a state of exist ence which would suit the theoretical ideas of philosophers, but it is net one adapted te our human nature. "We need total reorganization te make it practica ble. In their struggles for fame men de net step anywhere near the line of virtuous selfishness. They are net content te try the examples of the world's great men who have gene before them. Xapoleen 's greatness consisted wholly in his martial ability -, he was net great in any virtue. He does net seem te have had any virtues at all te speak of. He was false, cruel, selfish, dishonest and mean. He put himself under no virtuous self-restraint ; and yet he was great. Se that the children who listen te the maternal im pressions of goodness must be tern be tween the conflicting desire for the peace of heaven and for the applause of men. Beth they may net readily have in these walks of life where glory mostly lies. They may be great and geed ; but they have reason te suspect that they may be greater without beinsr geed. And, there fore, se many men are net geed ; but they fall between two steels ; for few of them .become great. They had uene .better te cheese rather te be geed ; for it is easier te be geed than te be great. The Philadelphia Press yesterday in dulged in a tiresome and ill-tempered -tirade against the Indiana supreme court en account of its late decision nullify ing the recent constitutional amend ments and placing that state back in the "October list." The Press charges the court with prostituting its power te serve the exigencies of the Democratic party, claiming the decision te have been ren dered with, the affirmative votes of four Democratic justices, the one Republican member dissenting. "We are charitable enough te believe that our esteemed con temporary did net knew what it was talking about in making this statement, but the bottom is completely knocked out of its plaint all the same by the reve lation made by Justice Xiblack, a mem ber of the ceult and himself a delegate te the Cincinnati convention, who tells a Cincinnati interviewer that he and a Democratic associate voted te sustain the validity of the amendments in ques tion, two ether Democratic justices voted te reverse them, and the deciding vote was cast "by a judge elected as an Independent, but of Republican antece cedents, who voted against the censtitu tienality of the amendments. TriE lightning red agents ought te be driving a brisk trade in the Queen City just new. The political elements have become dangerously mixed out there. The utter absence of bitterness of feel ing and violent antagonisms in the Cin cinnati convention augers well for a happy deliverance, and is in striking contrast with the scenes witnessed in Chicago three weeks age. There is every reason te believe that strong and judi cious nominations will be made. Speaker Raxdall made a bright and well-timed speech in response te a serenade tendered te him last night by the political organization bearing his name. He expressed his confidence in a harmonious outcome of the deliberations of the convention, and one that will re ceive the hearty approbation of the De mocracy and independent feeling of the country. m PERSONAL. The Emperor "William, though eighty three years old, rides his black charger with the steady ease of a Uhlan scout.

"White during his whole tenure of office at the head of Cor Cer nell University has given his salary back te that institution. Nn.ssex has abandoned her proposed visit te America this year owing te Mr Mapleson's inability or unwillingness, te give a sufficient guarantee. Mr. Henky B. Payne is described as a suave and agreeable gentleman, se strong and sprightly that he would hardly be sup posed te be in his seventieth year. The daughters of Commedore Gaunek, of the great calico printing works, who was drowned about four years age in his yacht in New Yerk bay, are reputed te be worth $4,000,000 or $5,000,000 each. Ciiakles Read, will abandon writing for the stage in consequence of his conversion by Dr. Graham of Ham mersmith, a congressional minis ter.

Reijekts, the picsent president of the Pennsylvania railway, is a tall and slender man, with dark hair and eyes, and the leek of an Englishman. His voice is low and soft, his manner kindly, and he has cultivated taste in art and literature. Senater Vance, who has just entered his 50th year, is described "a man of magnificent presence, tall, impressive and handsome. His hair and mustache, both luxuriant, arc iron gray, but the color of his face, the quick light in his eye, speak of physical and mental prime." His bride is a little brunette with frank eyes and intelligent face. She is handsome, accom accem plished and graceful. Waw: IIami-tex is a tall, shapely man, with a dark visage, but net a grim one. In argument he is keen and incisive, but se deliberate and captivating that he makes impressions. His colleague, Gen. M. C. Butlkr, is as mild in manner and as gen tle as a woman. He is a splendid speci men of manhood, tall, well-rounded, a frank, open face, and splendid conversa tionalist. The Seuth Carolina senators have only two geed legs between them, and both are at Cincinnati in the interest of the Bayard boom. MINOR TOPICS. In the great sweepstakes for the presi dency " the field " has the call by long odds there's Judge Field, Garfield, Schefield and the sage of Dcerfield. WiLMixoTex(Del.) A'rcr.y .EccMJjr ' "The events of the next few days may establish Mr. Tildcn's right te the title of the most effective Payne-killer of the age. " The Cincinnati Enquirer is "requested te state positively that Mr. Henky B. Payne is net directly or indirectly inter ested in the Standard Oil company in any manner whatever. " "Geneiial" Chesteii A. Aktiicu, the Republican candidate for vice president, wen his spurs in the quartermaster's de partment at Albany. He is net near se murderous as his military title would in dicate, and is reputed te be quite a "swell" in matters pertaining te dress and society. Halsteau's Cincinnati Commercial says: "The delegates have gotten en te the ground earlier than they did at Chicago, but the crowd is net se large and the can vass in the interests of the various candi dates gees en very quietly. There are no loud-mouth orators holding forth in the lobbies of the several hotels. Nobody is being abused. The best of feeling pre vails, and the general impression pre vails that whoever is nominated can be elected." Cexsidekaisle . popular interest is just new manifested in the origin of the cant political phrase "dark horse," and there have been a number of suggestions in vari ous newspapers as te the circumstances whence it obtained its present significance. The latest that has come under our obser vation, and one which commends itself te the average understanding, is contributed by a correspondent of the Philadelphia North American who recalls the scene in "Ivanhec " where the unheralded knight appeared (in the person of "Richard the Lien-hearted") en his wonderful dark horse at the opportune moment, and bears away the honors of the tournament. It is altogether likely that the origin of the term may be correctly traced te this narra tive. UltlMES' CARNIVAL. The Hangman's Heavy Harvest of a Day. Sunday night at about 11 o'clock, a ne ne geo named William Burke, in a supposed lit of jealousy, shot Pat Harris, also color ed, in the mouth. He then locked him self up in his house with his wife, and, armed with a leaded musket, defied arrest, threatening te kill any one who attempted te enter. The police surround ed the house and proceeded te break in. A pannel was knocked out of the deer, through which Burke's wife tried te make her exit from the house, but before she had succeeded her husband struck her ever the head with the musket, crushing in her skull and scattering her brains. The police then entered and secured the mur derer. While all thig was going en a large crowd of negrees gathered, and when they learned that Burke had killed his wife, the excitement became intense and an effort was made te take him from the police and hang him, but the officers kept the crowd off and took their prisoner te the station house. Sunday afternoon Raffaele Bentanti, a prisoner in the Richmond jail, struck an other prisoner named "Walter Fearney Fearney heueh en the head with a billet of weed, fracturing his skull, from the effects of which be died. The cause of the deed is said te have been that Bentanti's fellow prisoners were in the habit of teasing him in various ways, and that finally becoming aggravated beyond self-control be attacked Fearneyheugh, with the result above stated. Mrs. Julia "Welden, age forty-eight years was found dead in her bed-room at Ne. 204 "West Thirtieth street, New Yerk, by the neighbors.

Ne trains are run ning north from that point. The freshet ' came from the "Wisconsin river. CINCINNATI. A GLANCE AT THE FIELD And Review of ilie Chance et a Few of the Candidates. Cincinnati Cenunerchd, yesterday. Everything is in delightful confusion. Whichever way you turn nothing can be found but mixed delegations and the great est indecision, and the precise complexion of this Southern strength, which is really the key te the situation, can net be learned te-morrow in any event, and net before the second or third ballet in the conven tion is cast. One thing, however, may be set down as a certainty, and that is that the Seuth is prepared at a very early ballet te wheel into line for any candidate who develops a strong and available following in the disputed states of the North. Who this may be is at preseut as much of a preb lem, and perhaps mere se than it was two days age. The Bayard movement seems te be one of scntimcntalhm. He has ardent admir ers in every section, but the devotion te him is rather tee chivalric and net quite practical enough for these stirring times. In ether words, most of the delegates from the Seuth who sincerely believe in him, and his value as a candidate, arc approach able en the subject of second choice. Un less he develops far mere strength than he seems te have at present, it will flicker and die out before the breath of any first-class boom. Field has developed very positive strength all through the Seuth as a second choice candidate, though he has but little pronounced following in the North. Jewett is by no means out of the race, but he will strike his biggest snag iu New New Yerk. Payne will be emphatically repudi ated by the Southern Democrats as a mass. When it is represented te the Southern delegates that New Yerk might possibly consider Payne the most available man in this crisis, they answer that New Yerk must find somebody else they knew better than they de Mr. Payne. The Bayard movement had some strong additions yesterday, especially from the Seuth Carolina men, who are solid for him under the leadership of Hampton and Butler. He has friends also in Alabama, North Carolina and New Jersey solid, and a few in Mississippi, due te the influence of his personal friend, Senater Lamar, and a few votes in Tennessee. In certain con tingencies he will obtain a chivalric compli ment from Massachusetts and Connecticut. But this pretty much exhausts the limits of his boom. Se far as the Hendricks prospects are concerned it is conceded en all hands that no set of men who attended a Democratic convention displayed as much persistent devotion te a favorite son as de the Demo crats of Indiana te Governer Hendricks. They are here in tremendous force, and it is estimated that the trains te-day will bring nearly ten thousand rampant, up roarious representatives from Indiana. All of them will have Hendricks en the lapel of their coats, and attack the doers of the convention like battering rams. The Situation at Midnight. McClurc's Despatch te the Times. Randall has wisely decided net te allow allew bis name te be precented at the opening of the contest, and his friends in Pennsylvania will net concentrate en any one candidate. Had thispelicy been adopted by Randall when he found Tilden out of the race his chance for the lightning stroke would have been better than it is uew,as there would be no positive antagonism between him and the friends of Tilden. Randall's friends de net consider him as out of the fight. They expect a protracted struggle, and hope for a propitious moment when he can be presented as a peace offering te the disputing factions. The Indiana delegation have been put en their metal by the very general discussion of McDonald for a place en the ticket. They have met and resolved that Indiana has but one candidate, and that one Hen dricks, for president. They could de no less, and they are undoubtedly sincere, but Hendricks will net be nominated, and it is mere than probable that McDonald will be made the candidate for either the first or second place without consulting his state. Hendricks could carry Indiana mere easily than any ether man, but he would be weak and probably fatally weak in New Yerk, and that ends the matte. Ohie has practically cut loose from Thur man by cheesing an anti-Thurman chair man and deciding te vote for Thurman until the majority call a halt. It is under stood by all that the majority will be ready te call a halt whenever they are wanted elsewhere. It is new confidently expected that a Payne majority will be worked out of the delegation by Wednesday. New Yerk is getting demoralized, and there are evident symptoms of a row. A majority of the delegation is for Payne, and they can cast the whole vote for him under their unit rule ; but serious trouble is likely te arise if it shall be persisted in. The Payne men are working with fresh inspiration te-night, and they speak with confidence of his nomination, but if Payne shall become formidable by the Tilden faction of the New Yerk delegation it may precipitate the .nomination of Bayard or a dash by the field te McDonald. The first sign of bitterness since the withdrawal of Tilden has been exhibited te-night against the Payne movement and the field will in cline te any candidate who gives premise of beating him. Cincinnati is very quiet compared te Chicago, and the serious work of making combinations will net begin until te-morrow. There is no mere ap pearance of concentration in any direction te-night than there was forty-eight hours a"0. CONVENTION PERSONNEL. X'cn Portraits from the Enquirer. Speaker Randall has a bleary, but well chiseled face, with a decided Jewish cast, a keen black eye, with rather furtive leek. He is inclined te steep somewhat. In con versation he is guarded and reserved. Senater Wallace is of the canny Scot and shows his lineage in his face. He is quick at perception and has strong analytical powers. In person he is erect, and walks with an elastic step ; has reddish hair and closely cropped whiskers. Jehn Kelly is beefy. He is aging rapidly. His meld of face is Milesian in the ex treme, with the square-cut lower jaw and tightly-compressed lips, which indicate pugnacieusness and tenacity. In dress he is neat. His linen is mere immaculate than his record Archie Bliss, Brooklyn's congressman, is among the handsome men here. His dress is the model of the tailor's art, and his heart as big as is usually given te an ex. He is one of the rich congressmen, who loves his wife, his horses and his friends. Nick Muller, who represents the Five Points of New Yerk, is at the Burnet. He is a geed-natured Teuten, well fed, well clad and well liked. He is the peak of honor in things both great'and small, and spends his money like a Prince. Aleck McClure, who planted the first enterprising newspaper in Philadelphia, is at the St. Nicholas. He has a bread, smiling, geed-natured face, handsome blue eye, and is full of new jokes and geed things. Majer Ben Perlcy Poere, the veteran journalist, waddles like a duck. He is a great relic-hunter particularly of the abo riginal Indians. He tells a geed story, enjoys a geed drink, and can 'give mere personal reminiscences of public men than any man living. Ben Hill, leeks like a Methodist itinerant. His head is always bowed, and when he walks the streets one would think he was en the lookout for a lest pocket-book. He has a lantern-jawed face, net ever pleas ing, but has a deep-blue eye, and in con versation is exceedingly affable. Senater Jeseph E. Brown, of Georgia, sauntered about the halls in the Bnrnet house in his quiet away, and was mere observed than any ether man in the house. His long white beard gives a finishing touch te his clear-cut, positive features. Hen. Jeseph E. McDonald, of Indiana, the man is naturally affable with every one without losing any of his dignity, is marked by the villainous cut of his black alapaca coat. Hen. Frank Landers, Democratic candi date for Gqverner of Indiana, displayed his angular form in a neat suit of dark blue broadcloth, the whole pile sur mounted by a neatly brushed silk hat. It was the common remark that he never was se well dressed in his life. He has no lightening-red, and seems te have dark horse hopes. Governer McEneery, of Louisiana, is a gentleman of about fifty, tall, well propor tion, standing nearly six feet, and weighing probably one hundred and sixty-five te one hundred and seventy-five pounds. His beard, worn upon the chin and upper lip. is gray, with a sandy tinge, hair mixed with gray, complexion light and eyes dark and keen. In bearing he is a thorough gentleman and in conversation easy and agreeable, with a marked absence of South ern accecnt peculiar te the section which he represents. General Spiuela, of New Yerk, the man with the wonderful shirt cellar, changed his cellar twenty-live times yesterday. He was bound te keep his side-beards stand ing and create a sensation. The Squire's Handsome Crowd. The Philadclphians compose the only uniformed clubs here, and they tread the ground like veterans. Their march this morning from the depot te Walnut street house, a distance of nearly a mile, through the principal streets, was a continued ova tion. The 'Squire and his men take the cake. Their cut-away coats and white hats are mere showy than the sack suits and dark hats of the American boys, and then their yellow bamboo canes, which every man in the march carried as a Russian Duke is supposed te carry his sword gives them a very martial appearance. When somebody remarked te the 'Squire that his club laid ever the deck, he replied : ' ' That's what I started in te de and I'm geimj te de it." Speaker RanUall Serenaded. The Randall club, of Philadelphia, pa raded last night, and serenaded Hen. S. J. Randall at ;his headquarters at the St. Nicholas hotel. After repeated calls Mr. Randall appeared ou the balcony and spoke as fellows : Fellow citizens of Philadelphia and Pennsylvania : It is a source of great grat ification for me te see you te-night. That you, as fellow-citizens of Philadelphia and Pennsylvania should attend this great Democratic national convention affords me intense pleasure. I am satisfied, from every indication about us, that the de liberations of this great body will be entirely harmonious, and that coming here as Democrats honestly endeav oring te de that which will best subserve the interests of our party and government we shall go home with no differences be tween us and with the satisfaction of knowing that we have discharged a geed and honorable duty, with the knowledge that the ticket we will present te the pub lic, will receive their endorsement in No vember next. The Democratic party has been tried in defeat, and with every defeat it makes greater strides towards purifying itself and she.ving that its purpose is te honestly administer public affairs. It will grew year by year until this federal gov ernment will be under the control of men of principle, men who place their entire reliance upon the constitution tmd the laws. I thank you again for this greet ing. At the conclusion of the speech Mr. Randall was loudly cheered. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. PAINFUL ACCIDENTS. W. D. Sprcchcr's Nese Split Open and Jehn Duncan's Nese llreken. Yesterday afternoon Wm. I). Sprcchcr dealer in agricultural implements, went te the farm of Henry Trout, about two miles north of this city te set up a reaper with rake attachment for Isaac Rinc, the lessee of the farm. The work was seen accomplished and the reaper was doing its work very satisfactorily, when Mr. Sprcchcr thought the knife bar might be adjusted a little mere closely. He made the adjustment, and while looking at the rake, which sweeps horizontally ever the table upon which the grain falls, and rises vertically as seen as the grain is dropped, caught Mr. Sprcchcr immediately under the nose, split it badly, and would undoubtedly have crushed through his forehead had he been an inch or two closer.' The wound bled fearfully but is net considered dangerous. It was as seen as possible attended te by Dr. Reed, ami Mr. Sprcchcr is at his pest this morning with a swelled " face and a black eye. Jehn Duncan a fourteen-year-old son of Wm F. Duncan the East King street mer chant, was sent en an errand yesterday afternoon te the cigar-box manufactory of Frank L. Krauskop, North Mulberry street. As he entered the room in which a circular saw was running at great speed, a small block of weed was thrown from the saw with great force, and passing the head of Mr. Krauskop who was attending the saw, flew directly towards Master Duncan and struck him a fearful blew in the face, felling him senseless te the fleer. Surgeons were hastily sent for and Dr. Foreman was the first te respond. He found the lad's left check te be badly bruised, and his nose cut deeply just Lclew the eyes and the bones somewhat fractur ed. The wound was dressed and the boy was taken te his home in Dr. Foreman's carriage. He passed a somewhat restless night but te-day is doing well. Loek te the Census. That many persons should have been overlooked by the census enumerators, in the recent hastily taken enumeration, was te have been expected, and it was for the purpose of supplying such emissions and correcting ether mistakes that the census enumerators arc required te deposit their books with the prothenotary, and after having given five days notice, sit in the court house te receive names emitted and make all necessary corrections. A very casual examination of the books already filed with the prothenotary, dis close many emissions. In a single precinct of one of the city wards, a score of names are known te have been emitted in a sin gle block, and scattering names emitted in ether sections of the precinct. It was fully believed before the enumer atien that the population of Lancaster was net less than 28,000. The returns made by the enumerators makes it less than 20,000. There can be no doubt these low figures have been caused by the failure of the officers te find the residents or their care lessness in transcribing the names. Let every citizen who is net sure that his name and the names of all his family have been taken, examine the books in the prothono prethono protheno tary's office and see that the names are placed thereon. Lancaster cannot afford te be placed lower down in the list of cities than her true population places her. C. A. LAMAR. A Member or the Philadelphia i;ar Who Sells Begus Jewelry and Sets in the Leck-up. Ou Saturday night a young man calling himself C. A. Lamar, and representing himself as being a member of the Philadel phia bar (probably he meant a bar-room) made his appearance in this city. Yester day morning he started out through the town calling upon several Greenback peli ticians. He told rhem that he was a Greenback orator and would speak in the square. He had no letter of introduction, but said he was just what he represented and would certainly speak. He called at several of the newspaper offices and at all of them he wanted te see the editor. He did finally succeed in seeing one or two editors, but the receptions given him were net at all warm. The Greenback men were suspicious of the orator and before he appeared in Centre Square in the evening they learned that he was a bogus jewelry agent. They warned him net te attempt te speak, but he had made up his mind and would net change it. Shortly before 8 o'clock he took his stand en a store box near the monument. On the box was a large valise and an accordcen, and the light was thrown en the subject ( of this item ) by a patent oil lamp such as are used by all street fakirs. Upen taking the stand Mr. Lamar, with out being introduced, told the crowd, which was piite large, that he was a Greenback erat jr and intended te make a speech. Before speaking he told several alleged funny stories, which disgusted, even the boys, with the famous orator and member of the Philadelphia bar. He finally began speaking ami held the atten tion of the audience for about ten minutes. During his speech he referred te the " political politicians," the "menied men and the corporations in the severest terms. In the audience were two drunken men who shared with the orator the honors of the evening. One of them was very full and when the orator spoke of the ''great and glorious republic," he said "Ged bless the republic, but who will be the Democratic nominee." The orator was net te be interrupted although the drunken men asked him a number of difficult questions and several times told him te say something about Garfield. Mr. Lamar's speech, which any school boy could have made, was finally brought te an end by a crowd of boys who almost threw ever the box in their efforts te see the large satchel which they believed te contain something mys terious. At the close of the speech the orator opened the valise and displayed a large let of bogus jewelry, lie said that he intended passing around his hat for the purpose of taking up a collection " te de fray expenses." He would net take less than ten cents from any one person nor mere than live, dollars. All who gave him money would receive a piece of jewelry, iu return, and he advised the crowd, which by this time had learned the real game of the " distinguished member of the Philadelphia bar," te be liberal with him. He stepped down from his box and a man in the crowd had just placed ten cents in his hat when Ollicer Fulmcr stepped up and arrested the orator for selling without a license, lie was taken before Alderman Spurrier, and being un able te furnish bail, was placed in the lock up for the night. Before Lamar began speaking, the mayor, who had been informed of his real business, told the police officers te have him arrested if he attempted te sell any jewelry. Chief of Police Deiehler informed him of this, but he did net heed it, and after complaint was made against him. he was arrested. Thi-morning he was taken before Alderman Spurrier, and after the case was heard was discharged upon his paying the costs, amounting te ever $:, and premising that he would net again attempt te sell in this city. Immediately after the arrest of Lamar, Rebert J. Housten told the crowd that the Grccnbackers here were net responsible for the performance of Lamar. The latter informed him during the day that he was an orator and was going te speak. Mr. Housten did net knew him then, but in the evening he learned that he was a jew elry peddler and advised him net te speak. He was determined te speak, however, and when Mr. Housten and his friends learned this they told the mayor and ad vised him te have Lamar arrested if he at tempted te dispose of his bogus goods. Lamar has traveled through this state, and his performance everywhere was the same as last night. Seme days age a man answering his description was arrested in Ilarrisburg, where he was delayed for several days. He stepped at several dif ferent hotels during his stay in this city, and en Sunday he was unceremoniously "fired" from the City hotel, as he was be lieved te be a fraud. He is about six feet high, wears a "dice box" hat and a brown suit of clothes. He has a way of making himself very important, and seems desirous of impressing all who come iu contact with him with the idea that he is a great man. He is undoubtedly a big fraud, but a very ignorant one, and persons convers ing with him should net be long in ascci taining that fact. Kehigiuitiuusat St. James Schools. Misses Martin and Kemp have both, re signed their positions as teachers in the the St. James schools, this city, the latter having accepted a very remunerative situ ation as teacher in Denver, Colerado. The July number of the Scheel Journal has this handsome tribute te Miss Martin: "This lady holds the state diploma as graduate from the Millersville normal school, and has for some years been doing most excel lent work in the teaching of mathematics, literature, astronomy, botany. hs.Uery, Latin, German and ether branches. Miss Martin will be a valuable acquisition te the working force of any geed high school, advanced school for young ladies, or state normal school. Teachers of her personal and professional qualifications are seldom te be had 'at call,' but rather as a bit of unusual geed fortune." An Old 1ejj. Yesterday a 14 year old deg belonging te Theodere Wenditz, breathed his last. He had been sick for some time, and as he endured a great deal of pain Mr. Wenditz theuirht it best te have him killed.

Salisbury and Paradise divis ion line. Exceptions te report of commis sioners te establish a line between these townships. Exceptions dismissed and re port finally and absolutely confirmed. "A Consistent Journal." Under the above heading the Marietta Register prints an editorial in which the editor pays his respects te the Xtw Era's "crookedness" in denouncing Tem Davis and the investigating committee appointed by the late Republican beard of return judges, and advocating the cause of Adam Eberly, the Bull Ring candidate. Fellow ing is an extract from the Register : Fer petty spite and unreasonable preju dice agaiust a man who does net suit its jesthetic tastes, the Xew Era carries away the palm. During the convocation of the return judges at Fulton hall, en May 24 and 23. there were outrages and on slaughts made upon that convention by a gang of roughs, hired for the oc casion, and assisted in their work by the chairman of the convention and the chairman of the county committee, that were a disgrace te the community, yet the Xexc Era failed te explain in whose interest that gang of roughs was employed te brew-beat the convention. The Xeie Era failed te explain hew the chairman of the county committee " boosted " upon that convention a chairman who was net elected upon the first ballet, 'and that model paper failed te explain hew J. W. Jehnsen, without being called upon by, or even asked te appear before, the commit tee en investigation, showed himself there and desired te run the whole committee by his dictation, making threats openly that they must de se. The Xuc Era also forget, conveniently, te say that the rules required the chairman of the county com mittee te provide a suitable room iu which for the investigating committee te meet and that is just what the chairman did net de. In attacking Thes. J. Davis, because he, upon the face of the returns, was nomi nated, and defending the ease of Adam .1. Eberly, who was net nominated for the district atterneyship, the Xeir Era has been anything but consistent. It. has in tentionally given but one side of the case, and emitteil damaging facts upon the ether side ; therelere, we concluded, that a neicspaper that iceuld allow itself te be subsidized en the notorious riot bill, might also allow itself te be subsidized en ether things. RUNAWAY ACUIUENT. Driver and Herse Hurt Wilsen H'ree'tel. This morning about 8 o'clock as Henry Ceble, a driver in the employ of Steinuiau & Ce., was delivering goods en North Queen street, between Lemen and James, it commenced te rain. .Mr. Ceble picked up his coat, which was lying in the wagon and legan putting it en.

Ruth, a pigeon fancier of this city has had a rather strange expeiience within the past few days A strange! car rier, alighted at his pigeon cote, 15 East German street, and was captured. An e -aminatien of the bird showed that it be loused te Jeseph R. Husseu Ne. 1 1 1 Broadway, N Y., the wing-feathers bear ing his stamp and that it had been slightly wounded by being shot in the first joint of the wing. It is supposed te be one of the birds started by Mr. Husseu from Steuben ville, Ohie, as a contestant in the great fly from Stcubcnville te New Yerk. Yesterday Mr. Ruth captured another wounded carrier en the court hetu'c pave ment. The bird was very tame and was picked up by hand without trouble. It was stamped with the name of Samuel Erdly, Trenten, New Jersey, and had also been shot in the first joint of the wing. It is certainly remarkable that two lame birds, se far from home, and their home-; se far apart, and both belonging te noted pigeon fanciers should find hospitable quarters iu the same cote and be cared for by a third fancier. Mr. Ruth has notified the owners of the birds that they are in his possession. ' Lancaster City Ledu." James F.
