The Congressional back salary bas been condemned by the people, irre spective of party. Party conventions bite coudcuiucd it. Tbe responsibility of it passage does not lie with the lie. publican party. Democrats as well as Republicans voted for it. Judge Van Trump, a Democratic Representative from Ohio, in au explanatory letter, says : I bad voted steadily uud uniformly against tlie measure, w ithout hesitation or shadow of turning, although a majority of my party rtted the other way. And yet, as applied to the SHlury ques tion alone, I do not speak of it us parly capital. As a party question it remains at rest ; a majority of Hie Democrats, if I lie Southern members can be classed as strict Democrats, voted for it. Without their aid. coupled with the Northern Democrats, who united with them, it could not have been carried. Ia describing the manner of taking one of the test votes, Judge Van Trump continues : This vote was Liken amidst the wildest excitement in I lie House. It was manliest, from the way in which the vote was run liing, that the contest would be a ( lose one. After tbe voting was closed, and the names were being slowly read at the desk by the reading clerk, it was ascertained that the question was lost by three or lour majori ty. Then commenced a most ludicrous scene. Five or six members sprang tn llieir teet and changed their votes troin the negative to the affirmative, thus turning the majority to two on the other side, and I am sorry to say that the majority of these changing votes came from the Demo cratic side ot the House. Gov. E. F. Xoyes, in a speech de livered at Athens, Ohio, Aug. 25th, quoted J udge Van Trump's letter as an evidence of bow the Democratic party as represented in Congress stood on the back salary question, and then qualified as follows : I refer to these facts not for the purpose ol defending or shielding in the slightest degree those Republicans who, by their in fluence and votes, promoted the back-pay salary iniquity, but only to show that it does not lie in the mouths of Democrats to make party capital out of it. All mem ber? of both parties who voted for the bill 'will be held individually responsible for their acts by the people. Neither political party is respoesible, so long as it disap proves and condemns the scandalous pro ceeding. The prospective increase, not withstanding the time was opportune. I would probably bave been borne by tbe jeople, but, connected as it was with the back pay provision, the whole transaction is tainted, and the convention very ptoper ly demand the repeal of the w hole bill. Tbe Pittsburg Post, in commenting on an editorial in Forney's Press, on eompuUary education says; In point ef fact, crime does not arise from igno rance, nor from mere intellectual train ing. We bave heard the devii himself aptly described as "a being all intel lect and no heart." Doubtless he i as well posted in science as any of tboso philosophers who prated so learn edly at the teachers convention in this city the other day. ( rime is to be prevented by moral anl religious train- mg, and tbat alone. Nothing but the formation of a Christian character will aave children from wicked courses, and there are few parents who would be willing to trust tbe religious training of their offspring to tbe average school teacher in 1 ennsylvauia. IKD and weather and all other things being favorable at New York to day, the Graphic Balloon will start on its voyage across the Atlantic. We hope to next bear from it by dispatch from Europe, but shall not be surprised if we never hear a word from it. The voyage is a perilous cne, and science would bave just as well been served if Professors Wise and Donaldson had demonstrated on land the certainty of tbe prevalence ot tbe current ot air that they expect or hope will land them on tbe contioent of Europe or in Great Britain. Wise and Donaldson, bow. ever, are satisfied to stake tbeir lives on what they bave advocated, therefore let tbe world remain quiet, and wish them God speed. Colored citizens will hold a conven tion in N. J., at Starr's Grove on the 11th to-mcrrow "to celebrate their freedom and advancement in Church nd State and to josn in the com in e Centennial celebration of American Independence.

Mr. John Irwin, Jr.. of Bellefonte, Centre county, was last Thursday nom inated as a candidate for State Senate, by the Republican Conference that as sembled on that day at Tyrone for the purpose of making a senatorial nomi nation. It wonld bave pleased tbe Re. publicans of Juniata to have bad the nomination rest on tbeir candidate. Tbe Conference, however, thought it proper to give it to Centre county. Mr. Irwin should have the united efforts of the party at the October election. Tiiere is an institution in Philadel phia styled "The American University ol Philadelphia." It professes to be a medical institution. Latterly this College has become the subject of in vestigation for having, it is alleged, granted diplomas coutrary to act of Assembly. J be matter is referred to here as an item of news, and further because tbe act authorizing its estab lishment allows it to hold elections in Delaware township, this county. The Louisville Courier-Journal says that when the news came that a party of Men nonites bad invested largely iu Kansas lands, a party of gentlemen of that city de termined to invest in contiguous lands, and the purchase was consummated, between six and seven thousand acres being pur chased. The Journal further adds : "Olher purchases, we understand, will be made in a lev? days by Kentuckiaus, as the lands are valuable and greatly enhanced by the set. tlement of the frugal and industrious Men nonites upon them.

A dispatch from Okawville, 111., twenty, nine miles from St. Louis, on the St. Louis and Southwestern Railroad, says cholera of the true Asiatic type is raging there fear fully. Twenty-thrte persons died in twelve hours, and three children have died in one family in three hours. Patients die within fifteen minutes after the attack, and turn black immediately. It is said no local cause exists for the disease. On Monday afternoon a week, a married lady in Titusville went to the drug store and purchased a small quantity of sulphur- in acid, which was placed in a small phial. Before leaving the store she placed the package in her bosom for safety, and went home. She has a small babe, and when nursing it the phial was broken, by an ac cident, and the acid spread over her per son, also that of tho babe, burning them both aeverely. If a person swallows any poison what ever, or has fallen into convulsions from having overloaded the stomach, an instan taneous remedy, more efficient and applica ble in a larger number of cases than half a dozen medicines we can now think of, is a heaped teaspoonful ef common salt and as much ground mustard, stirred rapidly in teacup of water, warm or cold, and swal lowed instantly. It is scarcely down before it begins to come up, bringing with it the contents of the stomach , and, lest there be any reninan' of a poison, however small. let the white of an egg or a teacupful of strong coffee be swallowed as the stomach is quiet, because these very common arti cles nullify a larger number of virulent poi sons than any medicines in the shops. Capt. E. M. Camp, of the 19th Infantry, has presented to tbe Society of California Pioneers the most notable trophy taken from the Modocs during the late campaign, being a war-drum found at the mouth of Captain Jack's cave, upon the evacuation of the lava beds. Tho drum was made by nsing the four sides of a small box, about as large as a candle-box say two feet in length, and a foot deep, and about eighteen inches in width. The bottom and cover being removed, a fresh ox hide was drawn tightly over each side, and securely fast ened with thongs of the same. On crying, Lthe bide shrank, and the result was a rude, though sonorous drum, which the Modocs say was the only one they had. Thus an ordinary candle-box becomes a memento of one of the most noteworthy conflicts of modern times. A despatch from Memphis Tenn., under date nf the 7th, says: Some days since. J E. White, a prominent citizen, was arrested on the charge of horse stealing, and within a few days subsequent no lest than adoxen specific charges for simelar off ences were made public. He was committed for trial without bail. To-day his wife called to see him, and after spending about hall an hour with him came to the gate and asked to ne let out. ft ben the guard opened the gate, White presented a cocked revolver at his head and cried, "let me out or die!,, The guard sprang back, and White darted out, and mounted a horse which was in waiting and dashed off before an alarm coald be given. Pursuit was begun as early as pos sible, but up to dark he had But been re captured. His wife bad carried the revol ver in ber pannier to him, and had tbe horse in waiting. She was arrested.
