THURSDAY, AUG. 7, 1879. ' Republican State Ticket. FOB BTATK TREASURER, SAMUEL BUTLER, OF CHESTER COUNTY. "One-third of the voting popula tion of Kentucky cannot read the ticket they vote, and 150,000 children in the state are growing up in igno rance of the mere elements of the English language,'' says the Louis ville (Ky.) Courier-Journal. Gov. Colquitt of Georgia lately preached In Atlantu's most fashionable church, and his colored coachman, in consequence of the gallery being closed, was permitted to nit in a front pew This was the first time such a thing ever happened in that city. The rortland (Me.) Press tells of a greenbacker who, while denouncing Secretary Sherman as a Shylock, was asked by a listener: "Who was Shy lock, anyhow?" The indignant ora tor replied, in withering tones: "Well, if you don't know, you had better go home and read your Bible." The town of Wiscasset, Me., has an assessed valuation of $504,552 and a debt of $201,841. The tax rote Inst year was forty-seven dollars on the thousand. This year, by omitting any provision for the interest due after this month, the rate is reduced to forty dollars on the thousand, or four per ceutuni of the total valuation of the town. The Cox-Alston murder in Georgia lias led to a revival of public approval of the death penalty, and the State Senate has, by a vote of about two to one, passed a bill taking away the right of a jury to recommend a pris oner to mercy, which under the exist ing law of the state prescribes a pen alty of life imprisonment. Suits by the dozen against the county of Allegheny, Pa., are brought daily bv Pittsburgh lawyers in behalf of the losers by the railroad riots in that city and under the Legislative act which compelled suits to be brought within two years. The Su preme Court of the state has declared the county liable, and the legal claims will amount to about $3,000,000. Major Kinlcy of Los Angeles, Cnl., infers from recent events that he has a secret enemy. Somebody sent him a basket of oranges, and after eat ing one he fell seriously ill. The water in his well and the meat in his cellar were next found to contain poison. Gne night a bullet whizzed through a window past his head, aud subse quently a charge of buckshot was sent through his hut. The swiftest railroad trains are run in England, according to a German Government report, a speed of 50 miles an hour being common between London and Dover, London and York, and London and Hastings. Trains go at 42 miles an hour on one of the Bel gian lines. The fastest in France and Germany do not often exceed 40, and In other European countries 30 is the maximum. The Rev. L. Martin was not in his Presbyterian pulpit at the appointed time at Missouri v.n t... , .... oiotner who went to the reverend gen tleman's house found him drunk in his room, where he had drank a pint of whiskey all by himself. The con gregation was frankly informed of the reason for the pastor's absence, and he disappeared from the place as soon as he was sober enough to comprehend the situation. Ex Representative Haralson of Alabama is in Washington, advising with prominent Qepublicans about the exodus movement of the blacks, which, he says, will set in next autumn with an- earnestness not now dreamed ef. He says that not less than fifteen thousand negroes will leave his dis trict alone. The same rate from the other districts will take one hundred thousand from Alabama. Mr. Haral son describes himself as not much of an exodus man, and he believes that the movement is a remedy which should be used with great caution. He says, however, that his people are in fatuated with the notion of going north, and no eurthly power can pre vent them. Bristol is perhaps the only city in the world that has two mayors, two eity governments, two police, etc., and that is taxed in two states. The Hue between Tennessee and Virginia is in the centre of Mahi street, and it gives rise to many funny scenes, as for ex ample, the runaway couple need no coach-and-four, but arm in arm step across Main 6treet and are M'edded. The fugitive commits a crime in Vir- giula, goes to the pavement on the other side of the street, and talks de fiantly to the officer on tho opjiosite side, who has a warrant for his arrest. A stumble or a too bold disposition will sometimes, however, bring him 1 . m i . nj biiui. ceverai instances nave oc curred of fugitives being hustled across tbe line by a party prepared while in the act of holding such a ,vori versation and they tell of a man who defiantly perched himself on a pile of store boxes within six feet of the Hue, jeer ing the officers on the other side, but unfortunately for him some more law abiding citizens tilted the boxes, and when ha reached the ground, to his extreme mortification, he found that he wad iu the other State. A New Way to Tlo Old Knots. New York Tost. A crcat many persons have hansred themselves, but to marry oneself which is one form of being "turned off'! in the mouths of humorists who are partial to slang must be admitted to be much less common. Such never theless was the performance at Wor Chester, in Massachusetts very recently of "Mr. Henry J. Munson of Modoc. Mo.." who proceeded to unite himself In the bonds of matrimony with Miss Alattie A. iiinton or Worcester in the most symmetrical manner, and we hope that lie will never regret it. Mr. Munson is an Advent preacher, and it seems that he asked the persons In charge of the Advent Chapel in Wor cester for its use on a Saturday even ing. This was granted, and when the hour came some ' fifty persons were present. Mr. Munson, to get ready for the good work before him, went into the pulpit ami preached a sermon. His opening section was on "Repent ance" add the second on "Holiness or Sanctiflcntion." He then proceeded to read the parable of the ten virgins, and at the sixth verse "And at mid night there was a cry made, behold, the bridegroom eoineth; go ye out to meet him" lie descended from the pulpit, while the lady advanced from one of the front pews, and, taking the Bible, continued to read from the seventh to the tenth verses, inclusive. Mr. Munson then took the lady's riuht hand, and said: "And I now before God and these witnesses do take this woman whom I hold by tho right hand to be my lawfully wedded wife, to love and cherish her as my own body until Christ ahull come to claim us with all saints ns his own bride, or until death shall part us." Miss Eaton respouded: "And I now take this man to be my lawfully-wedded hus band, to love, reverence and obey him until the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout and with the voice of tho archangel, and with the trump of God. or till death shall us sever." The bridegroom then of fered prayer, after which Mr. Munson returned to his desk and ended his dis course by urging the importance of be ing ready for the coming of the Lord. There are naturally various opinions about the propriety of this strange ceremony, and some old-fashioned per sons may even question its legality. Massachusetts is not Scotland, and the eccentric possibilities of Mr. Wilkie Collins's "Man and Wife" are less conceivable in AVorchester than in Aberdeen. If jumping over a "Stick were a recognised form, so far as law or custom go, of prefecting the marital obligation, society would of course ad mit its binding force, however ob jectionable It might appear to those conventional souls who persist in as cribing to wedlock a sacred character. The question, however, presented by the case in hand is not one of permit ting the wheel to run in the old rut, but whether it shall be allowed to seek out or make for itself a path entirely new. Is this enterprising wanderer from Modoc to be suffered to set up an en tirely novel and subversive method of perpetrating matrimony? Are gentle men to be allowed to follow his exam ple, nud to wander about marrying themselves without the help of a third person to anybody they choose? These are serious questions, and they should not be lightly answered. The inconveniences of so extraordinary a system would certainly bo many, u'nd we should hesitate long and reflect profoundly before assenting to it. Nor are its own proper drawbacks the sole objection to Mr. Munson's simple and, to him, highly satisfactory expedient. For to establish a precedent like this would be to open the door to other and similar ones. Soon in such a case we should have children insisting upon christening themselves, murderers de manding to execute themselves and other various embarassmeiits which are so apt to be engendered by cutting loose from old customs. On the whole, we would really advise Mr. Munson, proud as he must be of his daring in novation, to tie li is conjugal knot in the old-fashioned way. It will be, we venture to think, much better for his bride, and for the family which we trust will grace the society of Modoc In no remote future, to slick in this matter to the ancient ways A double knot will do the happy pair no harm, but, in the circumstances, will aug ment, we are confident, the felicity of tho honeymoon. Stung to Death by Bees. One of the most painful and really horrible local incidents which has ever been our fortune to chronicle, oc curred in the German settlement, about two miles east of this village on Tues day of last week. Henry Hehrceder, a German farmer well known in this village, was engaged in hauling ma nure. He loaded the wagon, and started the team up a slight ascent to the field where he wished to unload. One of the horses, it seems, possessed balking proclivities, and manifested them on this occasion. Instead of continuing up the hill, he halted about half way, and in spite of the effort of the driver, commenced to back down the decent, and continued until the vicinity of several hives of bees were readied, one of which was overturned. I The bees of course immediately at tacked the team, which was now will ing, even anxious to go, aud in their efforts to escape, broke the reach, twisted the wagon in two, aud with the forward wheels ran away up the hill, the beligerent and vindictive in sects pursuing them. The poor brutes maddened and nearly blinded with pain, hoping, no doubt, to receive re lief from their excruciating torture at the hand of their master, turned and ran to the scene of accident, and un fortunately despoiled four more of the hives, and the reseutful inmates set tled upon the poor unfortunate ani mals iu a vast clond, seeming to bear them to the ground as by a great and overpowering weight, aud with one despairing, almost humau cry, they succumed, and shortly expired. Mr. Kchrcedcr and several of his neighbors witnessed the horrible affair, but could do notliinig the tfum being as much beyond their power to aid them as though tney were rushing over the falls of the great Niagara.

Samuel Butler in accepting the nomination for State treasurer spoke as follows : Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Convention: I suppose, at this time, I ought not to have the presumption to inflict a speech upon my friends. I shall not do so. I shall rather show my appreciation of your friendship by not detaining you. I accept the nom ination, not out of any compliment to myself, not as a reward for anything I may have done In aid of the cause of the great Republican party of Penn sylvania, but as a compliment to one of the most earnest and steadfast Re publican counties in our common wealth. Great applause. For more than 23 years the Republican party of Chester county has been true to her allegiance to that party elsewhere and to the principles which underlie her great organization. Personally I ac cept the nomination in the spirit In which it hns been tendered, whatever moy be tbe onerous duties and respon sibilities of such a commission. 1 ac cept it, however inexperienced I may be for such a trust, in hopes that I may do something to further the prin ciples of a party which has sustained and upheld the true interests of this government for the lust fifteen or twenty years. Great applauso.J There was a time not many years ago, when many indulged the hope that I lie mission of the Republican nnrfv miirht nt no distant day be ended. But our hopes nnd expectations have been blasted. Men mnv hums resolutions nnd adopt platforms for parties, aud declare to the American people that such and such are the issues at this time: but unless they really are, declarations arc . vain. THE PENDING ISSUE. The canvas before us is not for the purpose of making a particular man state treasurer of Pennsylvania. I thus a "broader and deeper significance than this. It is nothing less than a guaran tee to the people of this country the fruits of a hard-won victory- Ap plause. . You may attempt the pas sage of resolutions to draw tho atten tion of men from the mercy of this government, from the unheard of len iency of those who saved the nation. and from the magnanimous desire of our people to forget the last four long years of bloody conflict, when it was over: but I tell you gentlemen, that the salvation of 'our country is the issue before us applause ; we have seen within the last three or four months that the men who laid down their arms during the rebellion have not abandoned the hope of getting con trol ot tlie government, and are striv ing to accomplish by diplomacy What they failed to gain by the sword. Ap plause. Fellow-citizens, the mission of the Republican party is not ended until till the fruits of victory are gath ereduntil all the rights ol every citi zens are secured from Maine to the Rio Grande fapplause ; until every dollar of debt incurred iu putting down that iiiiuuitous rebellion is paid, and every dollar of every promise to pay is made convertible into coin. Ap plause.! t.entienien, again 1 thank you lor this nomination. Forty-seven yeart have elapsed since Mr. AV. Baldwin, the founder of thegreat locomotive works which bear his name, constructed his first engine in a little work shop located in Lodge alley, a narrow thoroughfare running from Second street below Chestnut, to Exchange place, Philadelphia. On Monday a plate affixed to tho unioke- box of a locomotive told the story of the outcome of this enterprise. "4,707" was all that was engraved on it, but the four figures meant that just that number of locomotives had come from the Baldwin work-shops since 1831 The 4,000th engine was completed on "Pennsylvania day" of the centennial year. These figures show the average construction of five locomotives weekly for the forty-seven years. The Philadelphia and Erie railroad company make the following exhibit of business for the mouth of June, 1679 : Gross earnings til 1,545.23 Gross expenses 200,4W, earnings H.aV2.SI Net earnings six months of 1K79 $118,112,51 Net earnings six months of 18TB 317,821,43 Increase .-. S:),291,ll This is a gratifying exhibit and shows there is a steady increase in the freight traffic of the road. All the lines of the Pennsylvania railroad company east of Pittsburg show an increase in net earnings for six months of $409, 758, aud, and all lines west of Pitts burg and Erie for the six months of 1879 show a deficiency iu meeting lia bilities ot 4Ud,7o.' being a gain over the same period in 1878 of $43,516. A nice point of railroad law has just been established. The Courts have decided that while Railroad Con panics are responsible for injuries done to passengers or freights in transit they are not to be held for their em pioyees. it is a contract with a pas- senger to carry him safely over the road, for which service, in all its bind ing force of responsibility and per performance, the passenger gives requittal. But the employees, as ser vants of the corporations, are supposed to satisfy themselves of the precaution taken by the Company against acci dent aud to share the responsibility In case of accident by falling througl: a bridge the Courts have held a Rail road Company liable to the passengers but acquitted of responsibility as to the employes, because it could not be shown that there were any defects in the bridge. But when In another ease it was shown that an employe lost his life by defects in abridge, bad material iu its construction, or otherwise un safe, the company is liable to th employe. This principle of law will be important to the safety of employes, The story that is being circulated extensively by newspapers throughout the State to the effect that "AVillium AVilsou, of Clearfield couuty, killed his twelve-year old son iu a fit of anger a few days since, by striking him over the head with a hoe," aud that said AVilsou is in Clearfield Jail, is false 1 every particular. AVe hope the papers indicated will display tjie same amount of enterprise In correcting this canard that tbey did In giviug It publicity.
