A magazine containing 300 pounds of nitro-glycerlne, belonging to the Roberts Torpedo Company, exploded last Thursday night with terrible force, near Bradford. Two men were seen going toward the magazine a few minutes before the explosion, and it is thought they were tampering with the lock when the explosion occurred. A careful search fails to disclose any thing of the men or the iron safe. The Cincinnati Commercial says: "MinneseU trill cover herself with disgrace as deep as that which buried Mississippi if her Legislature passes Senator Pillsbury's bill to pay the rail road debt at fifty cents on the dollar. The Courts have decided that she is responsible for the debt she Attempted to repudiate, and good faith requires its payment dollar for dollar. The State is prosperous, moreover, and abundantly able to satisfy the claim of her creditors." State Superintendent Illgbee has issued a circular calling a Convention full the Superintendents of public schools of the western counties of the State to meet in Pittsburgh on the 10th of January next to continue in session for three days. A Convention of the remaining counties is called to meet iu Reading on the 17th day of January. It is the design of the State Superin tendent to gather such information from papers read before the Conven tion as to enable the making of the utlLe btate. Washington, October 17. An ad dltlonnl amount of three and a-half percent, bonds for redemption were received at the treasury department this morning, making the receipts un der the secretary's recent offer to re deem four millions on and after to day, aggregate about $5 ,300,000. The secretary has not announced whethes or not he will accept the $300 09!) over the specified amount, but it is very probable, in order to save expense and trouble, that the excess will be passed for redemption. With the ex ception of several hundred thousand dollars the entire amount of the bonds received' are from New York. No change has been made in Assistant Treasurer HHlhouse's instructions, and if offered, he will receive the usual amount of 12,000,000 of three and one-half per cents, to-day for redemp tion. The graceful manuerin which Presi dent Arthur and his friends conduted themselves lu the New York state convention, has nonplussed the op position and produced' an effort that will, electric like, permeate the forces that bring victory to the Republican passes when impressed with the neces sity of united:, determined and aggres sive action. The Democrats counted upon an open war; as bitter, uncom promising and) unyielding as that waged between the Tilden and Kelley factions. This necessitates a perfect union within the Democratic fold, a state of things that one month's exer tions cannot bring aboutc The Republicans nave good reason to ongratulate themselves over. the re sult and; Took for a victory ttinfc will rfcure the best powibfo-gocdh) mould Big into shape the new agencies at Washington.

Arthur au- puc forth energies which, cannot fl.il to erown his official actions with awufiff- Wiilhiuisport Q. d- Ji The Abpcal to Republicans. (Phllndelphlft Pren.) The Prcu yields nothing to any Re publican In its antagonism to machine rule, Its desire for better politics within the party, or that highest spirit of in dependence which selects the best time and place and methods to make Itself felt and acoompllsh Its purpose. But we object to, and shall continue to op pose with what force we can command, the movement inaugurated by Mr. Wolfe, because: I. The Republican candidate is a man of high personal character. Ills record Is without a blemish. In war he bore himself gallautly. In peace ho has discharged the duties of citizen ship in a way to win the respect of his neighbors without regard to party. A quiet, modest gentleman, he does not lack capacity to administer intelligently and well the office of State Treasurer. II. The Independent battle should be fought out within the Republican party; a like onset was made in New York against more brilliant leadership, and the popular will has achieved a victory which goes to the root of the evil and embraces the whole organize lion. The same force can and will prevail in Pennsylvania if only the struggle be maintained without flag' ging or flinching, adopting for the purpose the most effective weapons and no others, keeping in view that the fight Is for the reformation not for de struction, refusing to be switched off into any side issue by the bad advice of well-meaning friends or the conniv ance of crafty enemies. The situation, notwithstanding all that is truthfully to be said of it, does not justify revo lution. III. The isfuie In this contest is not between the Republican party and the mismanages of the party, but clearly and unmistakably between the candi date of the Republican State conven tion and the candidate of the Demo cratic State convention. There is no shadow of a chance for Mr. Wolfe; every vote for him is that much taken from General Bailey, and Mr. Noble has just that much lees to overcome. This fact the Democrats appreciate, and they will help Mr. Wolfe with their organization. On election day the Democratic ticket-holders at every poll iu the State will bo provided with Wolfe tickets, and where they cannot get in a Noble ticket they will press a Wolfe ticket On this point, then, the question is reduced to this : Do Rcpub licans prefer Mr. Noble, the Democrat, to General Bailey, the Republican. IV. It is the duty of Republicans to stand by a good ticket. That duty is the more obvious and urgent now when impatient Republicans, desirous of reform, hope to realize it iu the election of a Democrat, and a Demo crat surrounded by influences which have disgusted aud alienated members of his own party. The cause of pure Republicanism developed in the late convention a strength which, though overborne, encourages its friends and will Inspire them with the fire of a new courage for the greater contest which is to be waged next year. When the popular will shall again prevail within the Republican party, as we do not for a moment doubt it will, the defeated element will be expected to stand by the organization, respect the voice of the party as it shall have spoken in convention, and give a loyal support to the ticket. It devolves upon independent Republicans at this time to set the example of fealty to the party. And then when the people's victory comes they can of right order out the whole Republican force, and they will speak with the voice of un impaired authority. These reasons we hold to be sufficient to command for the Republican nomi nee the vote of every true Pennsylva nia Republican. Pension Attorneys. The following from Washington will be found of local Interest: The Commissioner of Pensions has issued a circular warning claimants for pensions against attorneys who claim to have peculiar advantages for the prosecution of claims, inside in fluence, etc. The Commissionerstates that such representations are false and delusive, and made to swindle claim ant . He assures claimants that noth ing will expedite the settlement of claims so much as a prompt compli ance with the requirements of the of fice, sent to them direct, or through their regularly consituted agents. In claims possessing undoubted merit, when the evidence required has been furnished promptly, no great or un necessary delay will occur. A dispatch front Washington, un der date of October 14th says: Attor ney General MucVcagh leaves to morrow for Philadelphia, lie will probably return here the latter part of next week, and he proposes at that time to welcome his successor and In troduce him to the Department. Mr. MacVeagh has never changed for a moment his determination to consider bis own term of office as ended by the death of President Garfield. The Bradford Era of Saturday propounds this query: "Was there any connection between the presence of Orange Noble and the formation of a Wolfe Club in this city last evening, or was it only a coincidence?" The Pittsburg Leader says: "The death rate for the month of September in this dry is almost unprecedented, except during epidemics. In a month's time the deaths of 414 people were re corded, being an increase of 151 as compared with the average for the eight preceding years.''

In Bplte of the many warnings that have been given from time to time through the columns of the news papers, about being on the lookout for the various swindling devices of sharp ers during fair and circus time, a citi zen of Dclmar about sixty years of age, named Thomas Clark, was "taken In" on the streets of this Boro yesterday morning. It seems that a man came up to Clark and engaged him In con versation, and, as was intended by the sharper, it gradually assumed a bet ting turn. After they had both in dulged in a great deal of Idle talk the sharper turned away, seemingly tired of the dialogue, with the remark that Clark was an old Hooslcr, and did not have any money. The unsuspecting farmer stepped right into the snare, and wanted to bet that he could show more money than he (the sharper) could. This was just what the shar per wanted. Pulling a roll of bills from his pocket, lie said that he would bet 200 that Clark could not show fl,000. Clark replied that ho could, if the man would allow him ten minutes to raise it in. This was agreed to by the sharper, and stepping over to the store of C. C. Mathers & Co.. Clark borrowed $1,000 of Charley Mathers, and placing with it $00 which he had in his pocket, returned to where he left the party of the first part, and found him patiently awaiting the ar rival of his victim. Producing the money, Clark requested that it be placed in the hands of a third uninter ested party to count. Pointing out an accomplice in the crowd, the sharper said to give him the money to count, and without a word of objection Clark placed the 51,000 iu his hands, and stranger commenced counting the money over slowly and carefully. While all intently watching his ac tions to see how the wager would come out, it was but the work of an instant tor hint to stuff the bills into his pocket and run away. When the bystanders recovered from their amaze ment at such a bold proceeding, it was too late to do any good the man and money bad both disappeared. The proper officers are on thu lookout for suspicious characters, and Clark says he can identify the third party who held the money, but the proba bilities of his seeing his $1,000 again are very slim indeed, as the rascals are probably beyond reach by this time. The loss of the money is a severe blow to Sir. Clark, hut it will leant mm a lesson that he will never foriret. This example should go to learn other people never to bet on aunother man's game. The Sixth Comet. Intelligence received at the Warner Observatory, Rochester, N. Y., front Bristol, England, states that Prof. W. F. Denning discovered a blight nesv comet on the 4th hist. It is located in the constellation of La?. right ascension 0 hours 22 minutes, declination North 10 degrees, daily motion 80 minutes East. This is the sixth comet which has been seen since May 1st, five being new dis coveries, all but two of which were first observed tiy Americans, and it is certainly a high compliment to the industry and skill of American as tronomers that they have shown so fine a record. The total amount which Mr. H. H. Warner has given in comet prizes during the past year is Si, 300 which shows that the interest taken in astronomical affairs is greatly increasing. mm ll mm Washington, October 10. Ad vices received here from Minnesota indicate that there possibly may be sonic difficulty in electing . uiuuiii uic uciiiue, us u Secretary coiuinna- tion of Democrats and repudiating Re publicans is alleged to have been formed to elect Makefield,amember of the Legislature. There are twenty six Democrats said to be pledged to the coalition, and at present the result of the dicker cannot bo told. The general opinion of those on the ground and best qualified to judge Is that the scheme will fall through. Secretary Windom is in favor of paying every dollar of the indebtedness of the state, and the Repudiationists are using this fact as a handle to heat him for the Senate. Senator Edgerton is in Minnesota now, but will not allow his name to be used as a candidate. Dcnth of Dr. J. G. Holland. New York, October 12 Dr. Josiah Gilbert Holland, the well known au thor and journalistj'died suddenly in this city this morning. Ho was born in Belchertown. Mass., July 24, 1819. He first studied medicino and then edited a literary journal in Spring field. Iu May, 18-19, he became as sociate editor of the Springfield lie publican, and two years later one of the proprietors, were he remained until 1800. Since 1870 he conducted Scrlb ner's Monthly, He was widely knowu as "Timothy Titcomb," his nom de plume for all his didactic writings. "Garnered Sheaves,'' a collection of his poems, was published in 1873. Washington, Oct. 16. There lias ben considerable comment here to-day as to whether the action of Congressman-elect George D. Wise in fighting a duel with Rlddleberger would dis qualify him from holding a seat in the House. The general opinion is that a member can fight as many duels as be pleases, provided he does not commit murder, without imperilling his seat in Congress. Each House is judge of tho qualifications of its own member. The law of Virginia disqualifies any person engaging in a duel from holding office in the State, but a member of Congress is not a State o nicer. A HARMLESS EXCHASOE. A DUEL BETWEEN WISE AND RIDDLE BERflER WITH FOUR ROUNDS AND KO OWR HURT. Richmond, Va., October 15. In yes terday's first edition of the State there appeared an editorial written by Rlch arp F. Belrne, Jr., editor, In reference to the alleged confession of W. Leigh Wilson about the Blair letters, In the course of which Mr. Belrne denounced Captain II. II. Rlddleberger as being unworthy of belief. In a later edition of the same paper there appeared the card of the Hon. Geo. D. Wlso auto graphed last night also denouncing Captain Rlddleberger as a liar and and a scoundrel. Since that time the public has been much excited in an ticipation of hostile meetings between the parties named. At about 0 o'clock this evening Captain Rlddleberger and two friends were seen to alight front a carriage at the office of the Whig, and soon thereafter It became generally re ported that he had had a meeting with both. From the best Information now obtainable the following particulars are given : Immediately upon the ap pearance of the paper containing Mr. Belrne's editorial, Copt. Rlddleberger sent that gentleman a challenge to mortal combat, and but a short time after the second edition, with Captain Wise's card, had made its appearance the latter gentleman received a similar invitation from Captain Rlddleberger. All the parties left the city laBt even ing to avoid arrest and arrangements were speedily made for the two affairs. Messrs. Rlddleberger and Belrne, ac companied by their respective friends, met at 8 o'clock this morning, near Ashland, in Hanover county. But when everything was iu readiness and the seconds proceeded to load the weapons, it was found that by an over sight of Mr. Belrne's friends no caps had been provided for the pistols. The result was that hostilities were for the time suspended, as it was impossible to obtain the necessary ammunition within any. short time. Captain Rld dleberger would wait no longer and left the ground In order to fulfill the engagement he had with Captalu Wise. The place chosen for the sec ond meeting was near the Henry comity turnpike, about ten miles from Richmond. Both parties were prompt ly on the ground at 4 o'clock this even ing. In this case nothing has been left undone or unprovided, and iu a few moments the principals were placed opposite each other at a dis tance of ten paces, armed with regular smooth-bore dueling pistols and pre pared for deadly work. Upon the first fire Captain Wise's weapon snapped but be remained unhurt by his oppo nent's fire. This was followed by two other rounds without either of the combatants being hurt. It is reported that Captain Wiso's hat was perforated by a ball, while Capt. Riddleberger's coat was pierced by a ball. At the end of the third round the friends of both stepped forward ond declared the vin dication had been ample and that hos tilities should cease. A mutual expla nation followed. Something Interesting. HOW MARRIAOE1IN PENNSYLVANIA REVOKES A WILL. Some very hard cases have arisen un dcr our law in regards to this subject. A man about to marry Las mado his will in favor of his intended wife, and a woman about to marry lias made her will in favor of her intended husband, and in both cases the wills have been revoked by the marriage. It has happened more than once that purchasers who bought from the de visees or legatees under a will have found that they had failed to get a title to tho whole property on account of an outstanding claim on the part of an afterborn child of the testator. It is important, therefore, that the fol lowing summary ot the law by the late Chief Justice Reed should be kept iu mind: "1. The will of a single woman is revoked by her subsequent marriage, and is not revived by the death of her husband.'' "2. If a man makes his will and marries, and dies leaving a widow, so far as regards the widow, he dies in testate; that is, revoked pro tanto,x or in that respect. "3. If a man makes his will, and has an after-born child or children not provided for in said will, and dies leaving such after-born child or child ren, so far as regards such child or children, he dies Intestate, and his will is revoked pro tanto.'1 "4. If a man makes his will and marries, aud dies leaving a widow and child not provided for in such wilb his will is not revoked absolutely, as at common law, but only 2i'0 tanlo." "5. If a man makes his will, mar ries and dies, leaving a widow, but not known heirs or kindred, it is clearly revoked, so far as to give to his widow both the real aud personal estate abso lutely.'' The law refuses to admit that a man can intend to disinherit his children, unless he shows that intention by a will made after they are born. Money Wanted Instead of Clothing. Detroit, October 12. The new fire relief commission in this state issued the following statement and appeal this afternoon: The fire relief commis sion of Michigan in returning their thanks to the people of the United States for their generous donations for the relief of tho sufferers by the late fires in this state, beg to report that they have now an abundance of cloth lug on hand for the supply of their wants, and respectfully request that further contributions to the commis sion be made in money, except such articles as quilts, comforts and blankets of which aquantity can be used to advantage.

Let us stand together In defense of the great principle of Popular Rule and Free Repre sentation, but let us also uphold and carry forward the Republican Hag.
