PROF. SAMUEL I). GROSS, the emi nent Philadelphia surgeon, died last week. Prof. Gross has been for many years connected with the Jefferson Medical College of that city, and ex tensively known to the medical pro fession throughout the state. The dead boJy of the distinguished pro f feasor was taken to Le Moync cr-iua tory at Washington, Pa., and there reduced to ashes. 4 THE railroads in order to scalp the scalpers, have bit upon a plan of special rates to conventions and other bodies during the coming season which will, probably, in a great measure block their busineas in its most profit able season. The plan is the requir ing of full fare from delegations going to the conventions, ami one-quarter fare on their return, on the prcaenta tion of attostcd certificate at the Com panies' offices. ■ - — LAST week excitement ran high in financial circles in New York, by the failure of the Marine National Rank. This created a distrust that soon brought its fruits, and the firtn of A Ward, bankers, were forced to suspend, and have since assigned. Gen. Grant is the head of the firm, and is greatly worried over the affair, r" for which he is probably not person ally responsible, his partner being the jSt business manager. The shortage of accounts, it is said, will reach . $<1,000,000. Jt'iiAH P. BENJAMIN*.

Carlisle, Morrison and NVatterson, the griat free trade triiiiuviiate, would place the Dcni'K"ratic party on the defensive and in a fabe position, on the eve of a great national conflict That means defeat. That they love the Democrat- I ic party we doubt not; "Not that i loved !Cn *ar less, but Rome more," is their motto, as it was Brutus' defense after having plunged the dagger into the heart of his friend Csesar. Cie*ar, in the present instance, is the Democratic I party, Roa> is (.'arlisle, Morrison ami Watterson. Mr. Randall character- 1 ieed the hill a* a confession on the part of its authors of their inability to grapple with an intricate question. : Buch no doubt is the fact, but the in competence of the so-called tariff re formers should not be saddled on the Democratic party. Morrison flatly ami squarley refused to allow amendments to be mado en his bill, and then on the eve of his de feat taunted Mr. Itandall and his fol lowers with the challenge "if you have the power to defeat this bill, you have the power to amend it." Morri son knew when he uttered these words that it was impossible to amend the , bill at that time, as the Republicans , would have voted with the Morrison people. In this he waa unfair, nay, ' with the knowledge of the facts be ' was dishonest, and resorted to ths 1 tricks of a ward politician.

If the more svnguini of Blaine's supporters figure with arv degree of sccuranev tb< rote rontrollel t.y Ixigsn will be quite sufficient to give the nornir a'ion to the ''Plumed Knight." Both Arthur and Itlaine are shrewd politicians.

But may not the shrewdness of th*e princi I*l contestants suggest to them the propriety of "pooling their iaaue" in stead of permitting the field to utilize the strength of the weaker for the I.one fit of one of the minor Candida tee f Arthur and Blame between them con trol three fourths of the convention. There has been no such bitterness in their rivalry as to preclude a combina tion which would l>e mutually advert tagoua. True, it ia not likely that Treai dent Aruhur would accept office under Blaine, hut as he ia a natural horn politician and two young to retire alto gether from public life he might le willing to become "the power Isehind the throne greater than the throoe it self," As for Blaine it ia not to be doubted for a moment that if he find* that bis play for the principal stakes is to loae he would lie willing to repeat with Arthur or any other promising candidate the bargain he made with Oerflold. Stranger things have happen ed in polities than a combination be tween Arthur and Rlaine. Isaac 1..

It i* proposed that about six. i t'l-n hundred acres of land, including the historic q*.t ujtoii which Washing ton s army *a eticampcii at \ alley Forge, le pure based and converted into a national park. The idea is a very pretty one, but not nearly a- pretty a* the sum it would cot the government Iw-fore the spcculutora would realise the full amount of profit that would be afford ed by the picturesque and patriotic job. Ry the time those who had it in charge would get out all that was in it. the ellonstone park swindle, as a piece of intended rascality, would be thrown entirely into the shade. It is well to keep Valley Forge and the deeds associated with it in remem brance, hut it wonld not be too im aginative to believe that if the revolu tionary worthies who suffered the I hardship* of that winter rantoanient ! could ace what a rascally lot of job bers and machine politicians are im aging the government they would probably give vent to their feelings iu profane expressions.
