Democratic County Committee Meeting. A meeting of the Democratic County Committee will be held at the Bosh House, Bollofonto, on TUESDAY, Aran. t '2 o'clock, P. M., at which it is earnestly hoped every member of the committee will be present. The apportionment of delegate* to the different districts for the ensuing two years will be made, and other matters of importance to the party will bo considered. P. GRAY MEEK, Chairman. THE spinster in politics. Miss Buckley, of Armstrong county, offers herself as a candidate for Register and Recorder, and desires the nomination of the Republican party. WHEN fighting is in order in the! United .States Senate, Don. Cameron is the man for the Republieau-Repu diationists. They must, however, let his coat tail have full play, if they waut to obtain astounding results. Gov. FOOTER, of Ohio, expresses a willingness to accept a rc-noiuination, but that he will not seek it. It is be lieved he will be unanimously nomin ated, and that the Hon. W. 8. Grocs beck will be put up by the Democrats in opposition. JAY GOULD has purchased the in terest of Col. Thomas A. Scott in the Texas Pacific Railroad Company, for j which he drew his check on the Fourth National bank, of New York, for the neat little sutn of two million four hundred thousand dollars. Mr. Gould - i- the President-elect of the company. SENATOR COXKI.INO, failing to scare Judge Robertson to decline the nomi nation of Collector of New York, or the President to withdraw the nomina tion, is becoming vrry affable to Dem ocratic Senator*. He is soliciting re- j emits for the war upon the Presiden tial appointment, which we trust will ' not he found in the Democratic rank*. Tho appointment being a proper one will no doubt receive Democratic: sanction whether it pleases or dis- I please* the imperious host. Bon CAMERON did not wait for a tilt with Hill to make an HS* of him- I self. He did that in his speech to ! justify- the contract with Mahonc. But iu his pugilistic demonstration, last week, against the Senator from Geor gia, who was in debate with Mahonc, to demand the meaning of word* not addressed to him, the Boss wrote the word a a * all over him. He was prob ably fortunate in the strength of his coat tail, that it did not give way in the haods of his Republican friends, or , he might have received a forcible lec ture on the indecency and impropriety of his conduct. Wo have heard it intimated as an excuse that Don had been testing the strength of "Jersey lightning." THE Repuhlican dicker with the Mahone Repudiation party is not like ly to pan out the great thing our Don anticipated, when he electrified the Senate with his great speech on the subject of the bargain. It appears the honest Republicans, of Virginia, are not satisfied that the New York . and Pennsylvania bosses should pos sess the power to transfer them to the little nondescript, now credited to Virginia as a Senator. A large dele gation of the leading Republicans from that State called upon the Presi dent on Saturday, to protest against the transfer and to insist that the Ke } publicans and not the Kepudiationists shall be recogoited by the administra tion. That any other course will dis iutrcgate the Republican jntrty and doom it to hopelessness in the future. The delegation indicated very plain ly to tho President th&t hi* recognition of the corrupt bargain could not re ceive their approval and would not be , carried out, so far as the Republican party of Virginia is concerned. "KIJIAL AND EXACT JUBTICK TO ALL MEN, OK WHATEVER NT AT K OH I'KKSU ASION, KKLIOIOUH OB 1-oI.IT KA L.JollriH.n A Serious Republicau Confossiou. The Cincinnati Commercial, the per sonal organ of the head of the lute fraudulent Administration, and the Ohio representative of the present Pre*- ident, took occasion lust week to ex ult its voice in favor of immediate strife in the Republican party. It suid: If Senator Conkling wages war ujion the (iarlifhl Administration in the spir it in which it has been opened by the j journals that made a specialty of the i third term, it is the duty of the Presi- j dent to use his whole power to teach the Senator the virtue of discretion. If he wants peace on tenns becoming ma ! son a tile beings with responsibilities he can have it without trouble, but it be is j resolved upon war the Administration owes it to the country and the Hepuhli can party and its own sett respect to dc- 1 fend and sustain itselt by instant, inces- i satit, and relentless aggression, and the full employment of the war club and the scalping kmte. This bus had the effect of startling the New York Than into a genuine political confession. The Time* i* an i opponent of Conkling ; but an organ of Grant and the third term. It has always claimed to he respectable, hut it never fails to he partisan in the i presence of an emergency. During a campaign it condoucs its party's sins with zeal. When the jiolitical world is at peace it sometimes exposes them. Its present remarkable avowal is as follows : The enormous increase in the extent, j cost, and |K)wor of the civil st-rvice, j which was made necessary by the war, came at a time when the country was > deeply moved in regard to questions of j i life and death. In filling the office* j then created it was inevitable that li ' publicans should be chosen almost ex clusively. That w:i* in accordance with cdatom, and at the time the opponents ot tho Republican party were regarded as directly or indirectly in sympathy j with the rebellion. It would have been , practically impossible to adopt the policy of a non partisan civil service. So there commenced that system of Senatorial influence, amounting often to dictation, of which men of the type i of Mr. Conkling became the natural ' ex|onent*. as they were, also, its natur -lal truit. The j>erinl when intense par j tisanship was logically the saute as . , patriotism passed away, l.jt the partisan | system of appointments reimined be- ■ ! CHUse it served the interest of a vast I | aruty of politicians, from the Senators j down to the primary managers. It was 1 a had system, unconstitutional, unre- I publican, unbusiness like, unjust and unprofitable for the country and the : party tn power as well. It nearly rit'ii j ed the Republican party aud it cost the I country not only millions of dollars, , but many delay* in the righting of the j currency, many errors in the reorganiz ation of the .South, many blunder* tn I our liscal laws; fur year after year the I real issues in polities were put aside or | trifled with to ssve the patronage to j i the men who enjoyed it. The Govern- I menl was brnumbcrl, the party was | rendered cowardly by the wretched j system which placed the political mi ! ehinery in the hands of men who ran it mainly for the spoils. Unquestiona bly, Mr. Conkling is a product of that sy#tem. The Washington I'oil remarks with great force thnt " this is a most im portant contribution to the political j history of the country, in matter and in fact. It places the responsibility for the invention of this disgraceful system of " machine politic* " upon the shoulder* of the Repuhlican party, i where it belongs. Such credit as it deserves for it* frankness, the-Times will receive." THE home organ of Mahonc in Rich mond claim* that the Virginia Hcna tor "is a Democrat; that he was a Democrat when he was elected to the Senate." If this be no, his brief re cord convicts fiitn of reprehensible me thods —as one of that class who get into the rank* to betray, and thereby to enlarge his exchequer or import ance. Rut what he was before the re cord was made up, i* of little conse quence now. Rencdiet Arnold was a patriot, gallant in defence of his coun try. He was tempted by British gold and fell. The parallel is apparent, and not flattering to the Virginia .Sen ator. THE nttcntion of the member* of the Democratic County Committee is directed to the call of the Chairman for • meeting of the Committee on 1 ueaday next, the 26th instant. Kvcry member should be prcseut. The bus iness to be laid before the Committee it of an important character, and the BE UI-KFONTK, I'A., THURSDAY, AI'RIU 'JI, 18K|. interests of the party demand that it slrnll be carefully considered. We trust there will be no absentees. Tho Monetary Conference. It was expected that the interna- , tiouul monetary conference of which j •Secretary EvarU and ex-Senators j Thtirman and Howe arc members by appointment of the President, would begin its sessions in Paris on last Tues day. The conference p<>-.-*.ses no power further than to give the views j and the conclusions of the delegates 1 which arc to compose it, although in some quarters a contrary belief seems to have l>ecu entertained. The Amer ican delegates hud particular instruc tions to avoid undertaking to commit our government to any particular line of policy, as it could not Ikj foretold what action Congress would determine upon. The great point which it seems is to be brought before the conference is to discover the true explanation of j the depreciation of silver,and in what | way its value can be appreciated. Among the propositions which it is understood will be urged before the ' conference is that the price of fiue ■ silver be advanced to sixty and seven- j eighth pence per ounce by the corn bined action of the United States and tho great governments of Europe. Hut even if such a plan could pro duce the desired effect, which is ex tremely doubtful, it may be considered as impracticable. The commercial nations are all anxious that silver should command a higher market rate, but each prefers to derange its cur rency as little as*possible and let the others experiment with silver. France nominally has the bimetallic standard, hut not iu reality. So with the United States. The silver enthusiasts in Con gress succeeded iu passing laws to fix the bimetallic system on the United Btab-s, but the effort was abortive, as •Secretary Sherman's construction of the laws enabled him to retain the gold standard, and no creditor of the government has been paid otherwise than in gold, unless by positive request Silver as an unlimited legal tender has not found favor in this country, nor to any great extent elsewhere. Nothing practical in the way of securing a fixed and legal ratio between gold and silver came of the international mooc tarv conference of 1878, and it would be surprising if the experience of this conference proves different. The friends of a single standard remain firm in the conviction that gold is the true one, and will not therefore be likely to recommend anything practi cable in the way of giving the world a bimetallic standard. Tilt: spectacle! The representa tives of a great party iu the United | States Senate, present the anomalous : spectacle of refusing to transact the business for which they were convened. And why ? Simply, because the Dem ocrats, who still entertain respect for the dignity and glory of the jwo-t as well as for the proprieties of the pres ent, cannot become partial to the rati fication of a corrupt and disgraceful bargain. This, in tho Senate of the United States, once supposed to be a high and dignified body! Shades of Clay and Webster, Calhoun and : Benton, to what degradation has this foruin, in which ihc eminent men of America once electrified the world with the wisdom and the glory of their statesmanship, descended. It is now convoi ted into a barter shop where Conkling and Arthur, Cameron and Mahono trade their wares and bargain for the mean advantages of power to which they have neither claim or fit ness. In tho light of tho past, this U indeed a melancholy picture. But it is not overdrawn, and no true Demo crat can lend I hem any aid or sympa thy to break the dead-lock. Democrats can only stand firm aud by their acts protect tho great party they so faith fully represent from any apparent re sponsibility with the acts of these hux ters and the disgrace that will follow the ratification of tneir nefarious bargains. In speukiug of the Ilayea veto of I the funding bill, the Harrinburg /la*' triot hit* the nail squarely on the head when it ways that "it wus to enable the (inrfielil administration to arrange the | loan with the national Hanks on their j own terms during the recess of Con j gretu." Under the |dun of Becretury Windom they can refund their bonds ut the rate of."} per cent, for interest, while Congress proposed that all bonds | maturing during the present year j -himld be refunded at •'! per cent. Looan, of Illinois, made a speech in the United States Senate the other day upon a congenial subject. It was all about himself.

I Benjamin l>israeli, the distinguished 1 Kogluh statesman and author, was born 1 at London in Decembr-r, 1*(>, and wo* ' the son of Isaac Disraeli, an English hterateur, who, also b un near London, 1 inherited a large fortune from hi father, a Venetian merchant of Jewish ex ' trncijon.

About eleven o'clock on last Sunday morning fire was discovered and when the department arrived upon '.he scene the flame* already had spread from the little wooden shoe shop ad jacent to the hotel to the dwelling of John Wells llallenbeck on the north and to the Valley House on the south. Already quite a number of tourists are passing through this section and the register shows a number of guests. The north wing of the hotel was on fire and the main hallway and stair egress was a scene of excitement. Altera stubborn fight the tlames were quenched. The damage to the different properties is several thousands, hut the hotel will continue to do business. The parlors and sleeping rooms and dining room are in good condition.
