Thh ltqniblicau County Convention ou Tuesday last, vm ono of the largest nod most harmonious ever held ia this couuty. The spirit of ltepublicanistrt Is fully nrous cd, and many of tho ablest men in the couity were present giving evidence of their earnestness in a'tibtaining the priifei plus they cherish. The tickctjformcd was selected with great care by the delegates and is probably the strongest that has yet been presented to the people of this county for their support. The gcntlenicu com- i posing the Convention have just cause to be proud of their work. The men placed upon tho ticket are unexceptional, of irreproach able character, and reflect honor upon the party they represent. . Tho nominee for State Senator, Col. Jno. McCleery, is acknowledged to be the right man for that position, and if nominated by the eouferecs ia tho district will ho trium phantly elected, lie Is popular wherever known, an ablo lawyer at tho bar, haviug studied law under Ex-Gov. Pollock many years ngo. The Colonol served in the oth Iteglrncnt Benn'a. Keserves during the late rebelliou with high honors, having biien wounded, and imprisoued in Libby pri son, these arc deeds ever to be remembered I and cherished by every true American, and entitle him to the support of every voter. For Assembly, Dr. Win. J. Haas, of lit. Carmcl will add strength to the ticket. Dr. Haas is an honest and upright gentlo roan, and is well qualified for tho position. Every oco desirous of sending honest men to represent us in our Legislature, will not hesitata to vote for Doctor Haas. For llcgi8tcr aud llccordcr, Capt. Alex ander Caldwell, of Shamokin, received tho nomination by acclamation. Capt. Cald well's services during the rebellion, and his excellent character as a soldier and citizen his acknowledged ability, and his well-known labors performed in the coal regions to effect a change in our couuty affairs, nnd to advance tho interests of tho people by electing good men to office, gives him a strong claim on all parlies. His elecliou is already a foregone conclusion. For County Commissioner, a more suit able candidate than Mr. Adam tanker, could not have been selected. His large business experience well qualilles him for that position. Ho is honorable and a geutleman of irreproachable character. Although his opponent being equally wor thy the delegates favored tho extreme low- i er end of the county ou account ol their ! never having Lad any couuty othcer from that end. Mr. Lenker is very popular wher-1 vcr knowivind will bring a solid vote from tho lower cud of the county For Jury Commissioner, V. II. liCighow of l'oint, and for Auditor, M. ). Priestley of Northumberland, were nominated. Both these gentlemen ore well qualified and will make most excellent olllcers. Gen, A. 11.

A trio to lledford Snriuns bv way of tho Sunbury find I.ewislown railroad, leaving Suubury nt 7.30 in the morning is now not only a pleasant but a short one, were It not that in going out wo had to lay oyer at Huntingdon from 12 at noon till 0 o'clock in tho evening, arriving at Bedford at 0 1'. M., whereas on our return, we left the Springs after breakfast, at 0 A. M., took tho earn nt Bedford at O.oTi, and making eloso connections at Huntingdon and Lew istown, arrived at Sunbury nt 1.30 1'. M., time G hours and 55 minutes. Tho rido to Lcwistown is a pleasant one, the sceuery varied and picturesque. Having plenty ofpparc time at Huntingdon, and the court being in session, I visited the court house, a quaint and squat-looking brick edifice with a portico and two Columns in front, dirty hod dingy iuside,., 1 Our own cotirt bouse is a palaco, compared with-this. Hearing a cry of fire I hurried to the scene, ucar tho depot, where a car wl'.h 40 barrels of refined oil was burning, caused by a heated axlo. About 20 barrels wcro res cued from the flames by tho firemen and others. A Silsby Btcnmer, like our own, was soon' ou tho ground aud with two streams of water from tho canal near by kept up a torriflc conflict with tho raging clement for nearly two hour. Xothing but this constant delugo of water saved tho railway tics and the iron rails from utter destruction. From Huntington to Bedford the distance is sonic fifty miles by the Broad Top rail waythrough a mvuntaiuous country. The old and much dreaded trustlework bridge at iStoncrstowr.OO fecthight, which fell about a year since, inimediatly after the passenger train had crossed it, has been replaced by a new ouo only 30 fuet in hight. Having reached Bedford at 0 p. m. by rail, arUeoflJ miles in a carriage brought us to the springs. These, three in number, arc situated between, two spurs of tho Al legheny, iu a narrow valley of about 300 feet at that point. The hotel consists of four buildiugs of about 1"0 feet each in frout, forming a segment of a circle, built against tho mountains on tho cast whilst the springs arc at the base of the mouutains opposite. The brick building at the South ern end with its eolouade frout is tho only important one. Tho others arc old fashion ed weather boarded, and somewhat dilap dated. These springs are visited by a class of people who are attracted, not by fashionable society or for display in dress, nor for superior accomodations, but for the health inspiring virtues of their waters. Baltimore aud Pittsburg are large ly represented and so is Philadelphia, llar risburg, &c, by their best citizens. It is still a place of resort by politicians iu the early part of tho season. The principle spring ia called tho "Miucral Spring" and contains in a gallon of water graius of residuum, 80 of which is sulphate of mag nesia. Tho sulphur and the iron springs are much less frequently used. . Death of William M. Meredith. Hon. William M. Meredith died at his re sidence in Philadelphia on Sunday morn ing the 17th instant. For many years he was the acknowledged leader of the Phila delphia bar, and during his long aud useful life tilled many prominent public positions of great importance and trust. He was born in Philadelphia June 0th, 177!, and was admitted to practice at tho bar iu Decem ber 1817. 1' or years he had not even a single case in court aud in his own lan guage he was "nine years nt the bar before lie made his olliee rent." Duriug this long persoil of enforced inaction he was a hard nnd careful studeut, and when the ; ty miles south of this city, the accident was business of his m-ofession came ho was ful- j uot knowu here, except to railroad otUcials, ly equipped for it. From that time he rose 1 until between 1-J aud 1 o'clock this moru rapidly in his profession, nnd for many ( ig) auj then ouly to parties who happened yc.uu uiercuiuu uiciu was uui u inui oi i yreiit moment iu which he was not eim ployed. From 1S4 to WM ha represented l'hiladclphia in the legislature. In 137 hu was a member ot the convention called lo aawml the Constitution of the Sta te, and of thftt ire8idct Taylor couierrcd upon mm tho appointment ot Secretary of the Treasury, which position he held until the death of the President in June 1 .". In 1801, l.o necepted tho posi tion of Attorney General of 'unnsplvania imdcr Gov. Curlin, which he continued to I nia, instead of wasting their time iu hunt hold until 1S67 when he rcsighud. In 1S70 I ing Haws iu the character of President President (irant appointed him secoud j Grant, expressed a determination to co counsel of tho United Mates at the Geneva ' operote with him iu every measure to "pro Tribunal created for Hks arbitration of tho i mote the welfare of people, nud cultivate Alabama claims. Ill health pervented him from discharging its duties, aud Hon. William Evarts was chosen to fill his place. He was elected last fall one of the delegates ut large to tho convention to amend the constitution of tho State, nnd on tho or ganization ot that body was elected its President by acclamation. He continued to preside over ils deliberations until some time last Juue when feeble health compell ed him lo retire from the chair. Lands Lkaskd.

I.SAAC (L i)liDO., Our candidate for Supremo Judge, wos born in Northumberland county in liWii, and is now iu his forty-eighth year, lie con ics of a good old Scotch-Irish stock, nnd his grandfathor.who settled in Northumber land county, was a man of marked ability and otia of "the best educated men of his day. lie was highly esteemed iu all that region, and has left a kindly remembered name bahind him. The father of Judgo Gordon died when his son was quite young, uud tho latter was then left to push his way in tho world as ho best might. His mother found employment for him iu a foundry, whithor ho went to learn a trade by which he might earn a living ; but an -accident by which some boiling iron was c pilled over one of his feet severely crippled him, and ho was forced to find some other employment. Through tho kindness of somo friends, still living, he was enabled to study law with Jamkh I,. Linn, Ksq., in tawisburg, Union county, where ho wns afterwards admitted to the bar, and practiced for se veral years with great success. Ho then removed to Clcarlicld, where ho went into Cnrtncrship with Hon. G. A. Bahuktt, ut in a few years ho took up his residence in Brookvillo, Jefferson couuty, where ho has resided ever since. It was no mean compliment to Judge Gordon that, In tho late Slate Convention, the delegates from Northumberland, Un ion and Clearfield counties all voted for him from tho start, and that ho eventually got the votes of tho delegates from tho entire middle region of the Stale, where he was born and grew up to manhood. His per sonal popularity iu that section is very irreat, and is an honorable testimony to tho high character he bears among thoso who have known him from his youth up. In 18(i() and 1801 he was elected to the Legislature from Jefferson county, where ho served as Cbniiman of tho judicary Committee uf the House, maiutaiuiug nu unsullied reputation throughout ; and a vacancy occurring a few years after ou the bunch in llie Alercer Judicial Disuict, lie Was nppuiutcd by Governor Cl'htin as President Judge to serve until a Judgo could bo elected by tho people. Tho dis trict beiug then Democratic, ho could not bo elected ; but he tilled tho vacancy with great credit to himself aud to tho gel eral satisfaction of tho bar. Iu his own county ho has for many years stood at the head of his profession, and ho has loug enjoyed a very largo practice, not only iu that but in Adjoining counties. This practice has rendered him familiar with all tho difficult questions arising out of disputed laud titles, us also with tho many complicated disputes that have grown out of leases aud occupancy of oil territory ; and ho wilt accordingly carry with him, if elected to tho Supreme Bcuch, a legal experience extremely large, varied and valuable. Among his own people Judge Gordon stands remarkably well. His life and character have been exemplary, and al though always n man of pronouueed po litical opinions, ho has yet uhvays retained tho personal esteem and regard of tlio community iu which hu lives. If, there fore, to be an upriglil mau, a good Judge aud an able lawyer quality a mau for a place iu tho Court of last resort, Judge Gordon may be truly said to come fully i up to the mark, aud the llepublicau party I of Pennsylvania may congratulate itself j upon having for its caudiihuc a mau with ' a clear head and clear hands, who will at I without fear aud whoso life is without re- i proach.

Refore Alderman Reitler, at tho Central I Station yesterday afternoou, a hearing was given to two females, who, it tlie eviueuco i uga'.ust mem is true, are tlio most villain- , wrctches who were ever given to wear ! ..... 0 1 a lomn (' turill. Their names are Josephine Rowland, an olderly woman, and her daughter, Sarah Jane Raptist, both residing at Xo. 704 Dickerson street. Tho evidence alleged the following: Ten years ago the wife of Jonathan Row land, a rcbidciit of Soulhwark, died, aud within a year after ho married the eldest defendant, who had a daughter, the other uctcmlaot, by a former marriage. Kow k iprmcr marriage. children by the first wife: dest, nged thirteeu ; Mary laud hud three Margaret, tho eld Elizabeth, aged ten : and a boy of four years. Wilhiu a year after the marriage tho eldest girl was bo badly treated that she wns forced to leave her home. Find ing shelter atnon" friends, sho earned her living for several years, and fiualiy mar ried a youug man named Sailor, wilh whom she uow lives at No, 104 Morris street. From the time alio left her home until tho death of her father, which took place about December 11, 1871, tho eldest girl was uot iK'rmllted to see her brother and sister. At the death of her father sho at the funeral saw them for the first time, and has not Been either of them siuce until she met her bister under circumstances most horrible, ns will be related in the se quel. Ou Sunday morning last, Mrs. Rosctta Wilsou, - an elderly lady, residing at No. 438 Dickerson street, was awakened about b a. iu., by a uoiso at thu back gate. Sho arose and slipping on her dress, ran down her yard and opened the gate, bo held a trembling skeleton, clothed in rags aud scarcely aware of life, who said to her, "They have ttliii.nt killed me, and I have come to viii at lust." Mrs. Wilnoii recognized her ns Mary ElizalHjtli llowlnnd, tho second daughter of Mr. llowlnnd, wlui had. three yeius be fore, lied to her Willi a talo of horriblo treatment, but who had her takeu away by Surah Jane Baptist, under a threat of pro secution by the girl's father. Sho ook the girl into the house and found her lthed iu a rag of calico, not half concealing her nakedness, and besmeared with tilth. Tho kind woman washed hor, clothed lief -and fed her, and then beard her story, which was this : That after her father's death she was beaten and abused, nnd finally conliuccTto her room, from which sho was taken twice' it day to her meals. That on Easter lust a uew and horrible torture was begun. That after that date she was confined to her room and hor hands tied bchiud her, for fear she would escape, and after mid night only sho was released and taken out of her room- and fed on broad and water. About two weeks since even this iudul gence ceased. She was still confined and fed only at tho samo interval with lrtd and water, but not permitted to leavo hef room. But in addition to thin tho com mon decencies of confinement were denied her, aud the result was that hor room and her person wcro besmeared with the tilth natural under her situation. Mrs. Wilson kept the unfortunate girl until Monday morning, when, finding her rapidly sinking, she sent for her sister, who took her home, where she is now kindly caied for. . To her she told the samo story, and re lated that she effected her escape on Sunday morning by actually drawing the nails from the sash iu the room in which she was confined with her teeth, aud then, get ting out on a shod, escaped through tho yard into a back street, from which sho made her escape to Mrs. Wiisou's. Dr. Samuel Creadick sworn. The treat ment to which the complainant has txi-n subjected has caused her present condition, which is one most precarious ; it lias sub jected her to a consumption which may prove fatal her exhausted condition pre vented me from making such an examina tion of her condition as would warrant my saying what the result of her treatment would be ; she is now CONFINED TO II Kit IJKl), And should sho not recover or improve within a week, I don't think sho will" ever be able to appear before a court.

Sho told me that sho hadn't had n change since Christinas ; she said she had been shut up in a dark room tor six month, aud that during that time sho hadn't hud food uor water. Sho said they had tied her hands behind her buck, and had nailed the door upon her. As she came in the door of my house, Biiid she, "I'm almost dead ; THEY'VE KILLED ME AT LAST." I took her in and wasImhI her ; then 1 fed her ; gave her some clean clothes, and sent for her sister ; I was afraid the poor crea ture would die btfuro her Irieuds would come. Margaret Sailor sworu.
