There is no question about it, the Greelet movement is playing out The Tribune frantically shrieks to its followers, our only salvation is in or ganization and a more vigorous effort, we must not expect that Mr. Gree let will lie elected by a general up rising ! The World says "there is a lull in the camp ;' while prominent Democrats everywhere say, there is a "pause' caused by the forthcoming Louisville Convention. The fact is, the result of the North Carolina and West Virginia elections, has scared the doubting, stopiicd "ac cession''' and proved the expected "avalanche" a failure. The Louisville Convention that was pronounced a "fizzle" in advance, a "side show" run with Grant money, Las loomed up into such formidable proportions that II. G. has thought it necessary to at tack it from the stump, while the Tribune has ojH'ned its battery of lies ujton Blanton Duncan its originator, and it is admitted generally, that if Charles O'Connor will accept its nomination, while he has no show fur an election, he will play hav oc with the majority Greeley ex pects to receive in New York city, and other Democratic strongholds. Moreover Mr. Greelet as a candi- date will not bear examination ; the criticisms of the canvass expose and t-ll on him as they never did on a candidate lxTore, and the hunching, proselyting and prophesying of a ti dal wave that will carry him into the White-house, has died away.

J r ;' x-i..A DFJiPEKATE SAME."" 1 J"' It is conceded by the politicians on all tides, that a Pennsylvania goes thin fall, so goes 'the Union, or, in other words, if the Republican State ticket is elected in October, the State is conceded to Grant in .November, and Mr. Greeley is a badly beaten man. Fully recognizing these facts, the New York; Tribitne is devoting much attention to our coming State election, and is not content with sim ply advocating the claims of Bicka lew, but has embarked in a crusade of defamation against General Hart- RANFT. Nothing is too vile or men dacious for it to publish against this gallant soldier."' It hag raked the slums of Democratic journalism for its alleged facts, and rehashes for its readers the slanders just given circu lation through its own columns and those of the Sun, thence copied by Forney's JVc, and now reeopied by it, as originating with the latter journal, which it pronounces the "leading Grant paper in I ennsyl vania." It was proven before the Legisla- tivc Investigating committee last spring, that the slanders re-vamped against General Hartranft, were manufactured by the notorious Doc tor Payn, the friend and surety of Evans the embezzler of the State funds, and furnished the N. Y. Sun and were written with the purpose of scaring Hartranft out of the prose cution he was at the time vigorously urging against Evans, for the recov ery of the State's money. And it was further testified before the same Committee, that Col. John W. For ney and his relatives had received over six thousand dollars of the stol en money; hence the animosity of the Forneys to the election of the man whose faithful discharge of duty caused the exposure of their complic ity with the thief who robbed the State. It is said that a women who has fallen from virtue and taken the downward plunge, can reach a lower depth than any other human being; that a renegade is worse than ten original Turks; that in fact, those who lapse from virtue or Christianity, having known the letter and higher estate, in their despair rush into a greater degradation, a bitterer antag onism to the truth, than the originally vile or unbelieving. So with the Tribune falling from its high H'dettal, recanting its faith, and totally ignoring the examples and teachings of its former and bet ter life, like the vilest of strumpets, its present degradation marks the immensity of its desccut But neither the mendacity of the T ribune nor the railings of the Vf, co-workers in the iniquitous effort to destroy the personal character of the Republican candidate for Governor, can shake the faith of the peoplo in his integrity. TJteir object is trans parent, his reputation is aliovc and beyond their reach. The Republicans of the Keystone State will, in October, prove to these political harlots, that their fall did not produce a uuiversal lapse from virtue and truth, as they appear to imagine, and by the triumphant election of Gen. John F. IIartranet will again verify the old adage "as goes Pennsyl vania so goes the Union." THE RIUHT TALK. In his eloquent and unanswerable I speech at Worcester, Mass., Hon. Geo. F. Hoar said : "Is there anything in the Ilepub- lican record which any Republican would blot out ? Is there anything in the Democratic record which any honest Democrat would not wish to blot out ! How can you hesitate be tween the two candidates? Greeley would have let the South go ; Grant would have conquered them Gree Grant ley encouraged the rebellion destrej cd it, Greeley would have paid the slave-owners from the National Treasury ; Grant would educate the freedmen. Greeley, more than any one man in the country, is responsible for Bull Run ; Grant for Donelson, Henry, Vicks burg, Appomattox. Greeley would leave the colored man half a slave, dissuade him from asserting his own constitutional rights, and recognize a dominant race as still existing under "But Senator Schurz says we won't ' shake hands across the bloody chasm. Well, we have Wen offering to do it for seven years. I ask him if any cit izen of the South has been maltreat ed in the North? What Southern man has been treated otherwise than as a gentleman in the North ? I re member, in 1867, being on the floor of the Merchants' Exchange in Cin cinnati. I met Kirby Smith there. You remember he attempted to take Cincinnati, and many citizens sold their property for little or nothing.and left I said 'General, I am astonish ed to see you here ; I should think you would feel a little strange among these merchants.' 'Well,' said he, 'I have been astonished myself. I nev er was treated better in my life.' That is the way we have been shak ing hands across the bloody chasm. I say that is right I have treated these men as my friends, but I dont like to be asked to go too far to give and not receive. Don't ask us, as Senator Schurz has, to bury the men who fought through the war in that chasm and trample their memories in the dust." Buckalew is a free trader, and Gen. IIhrtranft is in favor of pro- tection to the great interests of the A POOR MAX. "Mr. Buck A lew is not ashamed to say that he is a poor man," says the N. Y. Tribune, which at present takes a deep interest iu Pennsylvania politics. No, ? Buckalew is not ashamed to do or say anything. He has not been ashamed to pocket over $100,000 of State and national money within the past eighteen or twenty years, "poor man"! He was not ashamed to thrust his hand into the State Treasury and draw out $500 for "extra" services on the McClurb Gray Committee.to which he had not even the shadow of a right, "poor man"! , lie was not ashamed to - sit in his seat in tb- United States Sen ate voting against every war meas ure, and drawing his $f,000 per an- a w uum, "ioor man : lie was not ashamed to visit Canada and sssoci- ate with Saunders, Tuompson and Holcombe, who were conspiring to burn Northern cities, introduce the yellow fever into Washington, and stir up resistance to the government in the Western States poor man I He was not ashamed to encourage the "insurgents" and the malcontents of Fishing Creek to resist the draft, and now he is not ashamed to come j before the people and beg them tol,pged murderer w.as to hare !)0,n give him another office in the face of j mnrried to a Baltimore lady of high 41... -.1. f. .1 .aaam! -.?

Stripped of the specious garb thrown about his character as a pub lic servant and exposed to the light in his true nature, his poverty will bo such as to leave him without friends, even in his own party. The certain defeat which this aristocrat, cold blooded and heartless, will meet at the hands of the people in November will thclve and put him away from sight for the remainder of his life. Poor man! poor man ! .Pittsburgh Dilath. The New Y'ork Tribune, thinks the West Virginia election of no pol itical significance, as both the candi dates for Governor were Democrats, "and both supporters of the Cincin nati and Baltimore ticket" This is a dishonest statement Both Cam den and Jacob are Democrats, but the former was the Literal Dem- ocratic candidate, and received the A r r i i - support of Greeley a friends and was 11 . terriblv beaten. Jacob was voted for by the Independent Democrats and Grant Republicans, and was elected. He is not for the Cincinnati-Baltimore ticket and platform, and, it is believ ed, favors a straight-out ticket at Lou- isville. There is just this "political significance" in the election, namely, that the Greeley candidate Camden, was effectually defeated, and that West Virginia does not hold out any promise to the mongrel ticket for No vember, and this the Tribune, might as well acknowledge without further misrepresentation. The Soldiers' and Sailors' Conven tion to lc held in Pittsburgh, com mencing September 17th, promises to lie the largest affair of the campaign, notices having lieen received from nearly all the States of the intention of the heroes of the late war to par ticipate iu it. A large numlier of the most distinguished soldiers and sail ors of the country will lie present, and one of the features of the occa sion will be a grand torchlight pro cession on the evening of the 17th. We hear that quite a numlier of the boys in this county, who " vote as they shot" contemplate a visit at that time. They should take measures to go as a delegation. Provision will be made for their accommodation if they notify the proper committee in time. Tickets at reduced rates will be issued by all the railroads center ing at Pittsburgh. In his Portland speech Dr. Gree ley said : " I have never vet heard of a man who invited his neighbors to raise a house, who proceeded to kick them out as soon as the roof was over his head." This was meant as an assurance to the Democracy if they helped to elect him that they should share the spoils ; but the sub scribers to the weekly Tribune who paid their annual subscriptions in January last under the assurance of its editor that it would continue to be a Republican and protectionist jour nal think that kicking out has been rather summary, and propose to let Mr. Greeley hear from them in No vember next Ex-Go vernor Curtin, who has just returned from Russia, is lying dangerously ill in the city of New York. On Wednesday of last week he was nominated by acclamation for Congress by the Republican Conten tion of Centre county. OI R WASHINGTON LETTEK. Washington, Aug. 29, 1872. DECLINE IN GREELEY STOCK. There is a manifest falling off in the prospects of the coalition party. Now that the lines are drawn and the Republican proselytes, who are gen erally fence men who go to the strong side, have halted in the bolting move ment, and begun to come around to their old first love, there are scarcely a handful of Republicans in the Gree ley ramp that are not manifest sore heads. The X. Y. Herald is strongly in the interest of Greeley, and its corps of Democratic correspondents uniformlvterite vp the friends oiurec ley and trrt'fc down the friends of Grant, and yet the editor admits that there is really nothing against Grant, and that be is almost sure to win in the contest It also gives as the rea son why the blow and furor that in augurated the Baltimore nominees has quieted down into absolute in dif ference, that the business interests of the country have considered the pro posed change, and decided that it, cannot be afforded in the present time of business prosperty. The gold market which is the most sensi tive index of the cautiosncss and fear of a change which now animates business centres has continued to vary with the popular pulse regarding the possibility, of Greeley'a election. Shortly after the Baltimore Conven tion gold ran up to $1 IS and yester- day it was down to $1 12. Other influences may last a few hours, but the fear of Greeley's election is a permanent dread and hangs like an incubus over the operations of mon eyed men. EXCITINU CRIME." "7, : " y The last sensation here is the mur der of Mrs. Wheat in our neighboring citv of Baltimore. Her nephew, a veiinc man of the name of Jesse Up- pcrcuc, who had ingratiated himself in her goou graces and already se cured most of her proiierty in his own right, is in prison. He gave the alarm and asserted that the heuse was infested by robbers who had shot his aunt, and that he had folio wed the robbers and fired his pistol down the stairway. ,11 is pistol was a four bar rel revolver and was loaded when found after the firing except one bar rel, with cartridges which resemble in size that with which the woman's life was taken. Search was made through the house, and no mark of a pistol ball could be discovered. It Beetus that the deceased was weak in body and mind and had been left from $75,000 to $90,000 and that there were rival interests iu the fami ly as to the securing of the money at her death, but that voung Uppercue being an Attorney, Lad managed to secure most of the property and mon ey and to antagonize her other near relatives. The case is involved in mystery and is enhanced in interest bv n.illiin fan .lava trA ttt- respectability. CAPITAL ITEMS. We are having an interesting con test between the Washington Si Georgetown Passage Railroad Co. and the District authorities in which the city police attempted to take sides with the railroad Co. The efforts of the Company to get rid of paving their tracks with wood pavement, on streets so paved, in lieu of cobble stones is the point of the trouble, and on Saturd ay the Company forci bly removed their track from the pro posed line of the wood pavement and placed it on that part of East Penn sylvania Avenue wincn is intended to be parked. They generally win in all tilts with the people, but this time they will have a lively time of it against the Board of Public Works, who are clothed with full authority ovcr the streets and street improve ments. A. 11. Shepherd in charge, will, it is thought, prove niore than a match for the Railroad.

C Al. Baekalew'a CH Scheme. In his Lancaster speech Mr. Buck alew claimed credit for having pro posed, while he was in the United States Senate, that the soldiers in the national service should be paid in gold. This was in May, 1864. The resolution providing that greenback payments to the troops should le dis continued was offered by Mr. Powell, of Kentucky, a Senator who was in earnest sympathy with the rebels and who invariably voted against the measures introduced to the Senate for the promotion of the Union cause. Powell could have had but one object in devising such a scheme, In May, 1864, gold rose from 176 to 190, and two months later it touched the highest point that was reached during the entire rebellion. If Powell s res olution had passed, the pay of the army would have been nearly doubled and the United States Treasury would have been unable to meet the drafts upon it Powell, Saulsbury, Carlisle, Riddle, Wright' Garre Davis, and Charles R. Buckalew voted for the resolution, which was opposed by evcrv loyal man in the Senate. Of course Buckalew could not have hoped to carry such a monstrous scheme to its legitimate conclusion. His objects were, first, to annoy the Senate and to embarrass it and the government ; and, second, to excite dissatisfaction and discontent in the army at a most critical period. It was a mean, con temptible and most dishonorable epi sode in the bitter warfare waged by Buckalew and his Southern colleagues against the administration and against the cause iu which the whole loyal North was enlisted. It was one of many attempts to place obstacles in the path of those who were strain ing every nerve to suppress the rebell ion and to save this government from destruction. And yet Mr. Buckalew actually has the audacity to stand up before a Pennsylvania audience and to lioast of his participation in the trick ! The insolence of this proceed ing is paralleled only by the wicked ness of the deed of which he boasts. He will find, when the people have learned the truth respecting his con duct in this matter, that it would have been better for him to have suf fered the record of his baseness to remain in the oblivion from which he recalled it ASOTH EB COX VEST. Ueaerml XeTalaMt tmw rat ftad WllMM. Franklin, August 29. The sol dicrs of Venango county held a con vention to-day for the purpose of making the necessary arrangements to attend the great Soldiers' Convention to be held at Pittsburgh on the 17th of next month. . Judge John S. Mc Calmont, one of the roost prominent Democrats in this State, was chosen President of the Convention, and in his address came out squarely for Grant and Wilson. This is the first public announcement of his inten tion not to support the Democratic ticket, and has created the greatest excitement Judge McCalmont is a man of great influence in the Demo cratic party, and will no doubt cause a great many Venango county Demo crats to change their views. He will head the Tcnango county delegation to the Pittsburgh Convention. . Samper Killed. ' St. Louis, August 28. Some days ago two desperadoes named McClel land and Wright got into a quarrel at Hays City, Kansas, in which Wright was killed and McClelland was badly wounded. McClelland was placed in jail and chained to a post with Pony Donovan, the noted horse tnicl. Hie second night of the murder, a band of citizens visited the jail and killed both McClelland and Donovan. Hon. Thomas Steere, who was last year the Democratic candidate for Governor of Rhode Island, addressed the Woonsocket Republicans in favor of Grant and Wilson. The Blaadjr CkHB. The Iit'vieic, a Greeley paper pub lished in Quitman, Georgia, offers these remarks : "The atrocities of the Northern soldiery arc still too fresh in our mem ory ; the" scars on pur . heart are not yet erased; the names of Chick aniauga and Elmira still suffuse the eyes with tears, and the heart with terrible thoughts of vengeance - Ah ! it is too soon to make light of the four years' struggle for liberty. Widows have not,, ceased to lament the loss of husbands ; mothers still cherish the memory of departed sons : brothers and sisters still remember j idolized fathers and brothers. The; reminders of war's terrible havoc are Mtill visible the grim landmarks of a vandal host are not erased the blackened ruins made by incendiary and hireling armies are altogether too fresh in the minds of Southern men to expect from them even political en dorsement of all the atrocious acts of a vandal host. When we so debase our manhood when we so outrage all the nobler feelings of humanity as to stand over the graves of our Confederate dead, nnd, iu the lan guage of the ninth resolution of the Cincinnati-Baltimore platform, ex claim, 'we remember with gratitude the heroism, and sacrifices of the sol diers of the North,' may our tongue clevo to the roof of our mouth, and may God's thunderbolt lay us lifeless over the sacred mound we thus dis honor." "No ?" implies the Kei-iew, "you may talk about peace and reconcilia tion and hand-clasping as much as you please, but we sec our way to a terrible vengeance upon the Govern ment and upon the negro through the election of Horace Greeley. We will aid in electing him because we see in his success new hope for the lost cause, but we do not, we will not en dorse even politically the platform upon which he stands. That is all well enough for the North, but as for the South, it is just where it was in feeling when Lee invaded Pennsylva nia and Thompson was concocting measures to bum the cities of the North." A FAR WENT TBAUEDY. Tv Mrm, One Womaa mud ( hll drea Inhumanly Butchered. The St. Joseph (Mo.) Gazette gives the following account of a tragedy which has been alluded t in our tele graphic columns: Most of our readers will remember the case of Johu Grable, who was hung in this cityjtwo years ago. The defendant murdered his best friend, and packed the body around in his wagon for three days, passing through this city on his way to Parkeville. The horrible circumstances attending the crime, as well as the subsequent conduct of the prisoner, shocked the entire community, and it was su posed the case was almost without parallel in history. Yesterday morning the telegraphic despatches contained a brief account of the discovery of a crime by the side of which G Table's becomes ut terly insignificant Yesterday, thro' the kindness of Colonel A. P. More house, of the Nodaway Z)fMoeraf,we were furnished with full particulars of the shocking affair. On last Tues day a man drove into the town of Clearmont fourteeu miles northwest of Marysville, with two horses and a covered wagon. The man had broken the neck yoke of his wagon, and spent some time in trying to pro cure another. His actions were somewhat strange. He was intoxi cated and gave a little girl five dol lars to bring him a drink of water, and seemed much excited. Mr. John Giffey happening near the wagon, discovered a disagreeable odor, and asked what he had in the wagon that smelt so. He replied that it was a quarter of beef that was about spoil ed. Mr. Giffey asked him why he carried such beef, to which he made no reply. Soon after he left the wa gon, Mr. Giffey and others, think ing all was not right, coucluded to make an investigation. And such a sight as was revealed to their view was enough to "make the knees of terror quake and the face of darkness turn pale ! " There, wrapped up in bed clothes, were five human beings piled together, partly decomposed, and presenting as sad and mournful a spectacle as was ever beheld. The victims were two men, one woman and two children The children were small, one a babe of two months and the other two years. One man, the woman and children, had their throats cut from car to ear. They were prob ably murdered in the wagon where found, as they were in their night clothes The other man was of large frame, and had been killed by being shot in the head and beaten with a club. He had probably been sleeping under the wagon, as his body had been cut in two for the purpose of getting him into the wagon. The feelings of the citizens of Clear mont may well be imagined when so direful a crime was known to have been committed . Manv of them ad vocated Instant death to such a fiend in human form, who must have committed the crime ; but wiser counsels prevailed, and his life was spared, not, however, until he had made a statement of what, he knew about the crime, which he did not do until he had the second time felt his weight at the short end of a rope. He at first said his prayers and made his peace with bis- maker ; but, upon being let down the second time, he made the following state ment: He said his name was Osburn; that his wife and wife's mother lived near Mt Ayre, Ringgold county, Iowa. He said his mother-in-law's name was Delilah Ayres, and that he had a boy five years old. He said the name of the murdered family was Ormes; that tbey went to Kansas from Minnessota last spring; that the name of the other murdered man was Daniel Dickerson; That he bad ac companied the murdered family from Minnesota to Kansas, and wa3 a cousin to Mrs. Ormes. He said that Joseph Williams murdered the party on last Thursday night, near Holton, Kansas, and hired bim, for a consid eration of $700, to conceal the bodies; that be started to do so, intending to secrete them in the first brush patch ; that there was a keg of whiskey in the wagon, from which he had imbib ed freely, and he had been drank ever since ; that he desired to put them in the Missouri river, but that be got to White Cloud in the day : time, and could not do so. He stated that he could not find any suitable place to hide the bodies ; that it appeared to him that Providence was against him, and it smote his conscience so that he was not at all conscious of what be was doing. ' He stated that Williams followed the Ormes family from Minnesota for the purpose of MURDERING THEM; that the cause of his bate was an old love affair between himself and Mrs. Ormes ; that Williams had sworn to slay Ormes, his wife and posterity ; that when the parties were murdered they had the wagon in which the bodies were found, two yoke of oxen and some loose cattle. He . said he had traded the cnttlo for a span of horses, and sold the loose cattle just before he arrived at Clearmont, and that he had also hid the 700 in a sack. The parties who have him in charge are the best citizens in Nodaway. They started on the back track, and found his statements correct about trading and selling the cattle, but could not find the money where he stated he had hid it. Sheriff , Wray went out to bring in Osburn yesterday, but could not get him, as the parties who have hini in tend to keep him until it is ascertain ed whether his statements are fjre. The sheriff left for Kansas last night to have Williams arrested and kept, though a telegram was sent to Holton to make the arrest yesterday. LATER. The following despatch was receiv ed from Colonel A. P. Morehouse last evening: "Marysville, 10 p. m. (JazetL-:-The place has been found, near Burr Oak grove, in this county, where is it supjKised that Osburn killed the Ormes family and Dickerson. The party were seen on the road before the terrible tragedy occurred, travel ing together, a short time before they got to the sjot where they camped. Great quantities of blood were found on the ground, and other evidences that put it beyond a doubt that Os burn killed them. He is yet in the hands of the citizens, and there is no doubt of his guilt Niagalar Aeeldeat. The dreadful accident of yesterday, which may result in the death of two unfortunate men, calls to mind an oc currence of similar character which took place, some years ago, on the Lexington and HarrodshurgPikc. It seems that to construct the winding road down the hill near the Kentucky river, blasting was neccessarv to as sist in the removal of the rock, one occasion the blust failed to plode. The workmen avoided it some time, and, as it was finally On de- termined to widen the road at that place, after it should be completed throughout its length, the old blast was altogether neglected. After a lapse of twenty -one years the long delayed improvement was commenc ed. The old blast was forgotten; workmen set to work to drill new holes near where the old one had been made. Three men were thus engaged one day, when suddenly the rocks were torn asunder. One Gormley, standing on a loose rock, was thrown fifty feet into the air, and was saved from death only by his falling upon an elevated bank. The other two were blown down the hill-side. None were killed, but all were bably wounded, Gormley losing an eye. The explosion of neglected blasts is by no means uncommon, and some method ought to be adopted to render the powder in such cases non-explosive, and thus protect human life from such terrible risks. It would seem to us that some chemical preparation might be invented to answer the pur pose we have mentioned. Aa Vafertaaate Raaakulll. John C. King, of this city, met with a melancholy death on the Rail road on Saturday night Mr. Kingbad been an agent for the old Champion Machine Company (Whitely, Fussier & Kelley), and had been canvassing New York State in the interest of the Champion. He was in company with Mr. Clay Whiteley and W. StillwelL The party took to their berths in a sleeping-car on the Atlan tic and Great Western Railroad, at Marion, at about 11 o'clock. All were in good spirits, and were much pleased with the prospect of soon ar riving home. Mr. King asked one of the party at this time when he would get to Springfield. On being told the time, he said : "I am glad of that, for I soon shall see my boy." Nothing further was done until the train arrived at Urbana, when it was discovered that King's berth was empty. His absence could not be ac counted for. The party came on to Spiingfield, and on the next tram east Mr. Oliver Kelley started to find him. He soon ascertained that Mr. King had been found at Potter's station, four miles east of Lewisburg, and that he was most seriously injured. From all the circumstances surround ing this sad case it is evident that the deceased must have got up out of his berth in his sleep, about one o'clock at night, and t alked out of and off the sleeping-car. He had fallen by the side of the track and there laid a considerable time, and then dragged himself a distance of about fifty feet, where he was found. The injuries he received were on the head and side of the body, and were so mortal that he died iu a short time after he was found. He had been kindly cared for by those who had discovered him in his helpless situtation. His body will lie brought home this after noon. Dentrurtlve Railway Aeeldeat. Philadelphia, August 27.

This disaster had hardly occurred when a train of ninety coal cars, fully laden, came running up to the bridge. The engineer and fireman jumped from the engine and escaped with their lives, though sus taining some slight injuries. In a moment more the coal trains collided with terrific force with the huge pile of ruins which filled the chasm. The shock to the train threw every car from the track, while ten were com pletely smashed and battered op, lying piled upon each other. Some were tossed a distance of twenty feet Others were thrown back upon the train. Their wreck was complete. In a few minutes after the collision of the coal train a conflagration ensued, which destroyed all the ears that plunged into the chasm, with vll their valuable merchandise, and the loco motive of the latter was completely destroyed and lay plied upon the charred cars and ruins of the bridge. The cars of the New York train con tained dry goods. The fire depart ment was quickly summoned, but despite the efforts of the firemen all that was combustible went to ashes. The last political bon mot is this : "You'll vote for Greeley, of course," said a white Liberal to Mr. Mitchel, who was sergeant in a colored regi ment and lost a leg in the war. "My stump will have to grow first," was the retort of the crippled sergeant A m4 Haa'aOplalea fOreeley. President White, of Cornell (N. Y.) University, was asked what he thought of Horace Greeley and promptly answered : "Whv. he's a failure. He's failed in everything yet We sent biin to Conercss and what did be do 1 Why he left the grand national issues of ireeuom and slavery struggle on whii out his aid, and fuddled away bis time on a picayune one-horse scheme like the mileage question. He is always penny-wise and iiound-foolish. He would hold up a cent In-fore his eyes, and because he couldn't see the dome of St Peter, ho would set the world on fire to make people believe that the cent was the biggest If he was President he would get some two cent st henic in his head like the frauking privilege, and let broad questions on which the happiness aud prosperity of the nation depend go to the small dogs who hedge in around the White House. He's a narrow, fussy, preju diced, vacillating, picayune man." IT A II. a Outrage Deatractlaa af Frlvata frapertjr. Salt Lake, August 29. By order of a Mormon Justice of the Peace, the police this afternoon made a de scent this afternoon upon several houses of ill-fame, and with axes, knives, Ac, demolished all the furni ture therein, worth probably $10,000. Bureaus, bedsteads, pictures, carpets and everything were chopiied to pieces. A Considerable amount of money and jewelry had to lie taken. There is much excitement among the liberal citizens on uccount of the wanton destruction of property, and there is much bad feeling and threats are made to organize a vigilance committee and clean out Brigham Young's and other jMilygamist's houses. Yol'ngstown, O., August 2S, 1872. A battery of ten Iniilers, each fifty feet long, exploded at Brown, Bennet & Co.'s new mill, about three o'clock this morning, with a loud report, jar ing houses a mile off. The boilers wi re heated by gas and attended by one fireman named Garalby. who was instantly killed. Pieces of the boiler flew in all directions, some nearly half a mile. One piuce fifteen feet long struck a house a quarter of a mile distant, penetrating and kill ing a woman and child in bed and mortally wounding the husband, named Ouiglcv. One boiler weut through the mill, knocking down the furuace stack aud tearing up the ma chinery in its path. Had the explo sion been a few minutes sooner or later the loss of life would have been terrible, as the force at work in the mill hail just gone off duty and the relief had not yet come on. The causo of the explosion is not known. Loss fully $20,000 ; partly insured. This explosion was the most destruc tive that evur occurred in the vallev. A Terrible Taruada. Chicago, Aug. 26. A Jackson ville, III., despatch says a terrible tor nado passed over that city and vicini ty last night About half of the roof of Capp's woolen mills wa9 torn off, and one-third of the roof of the Jack sonville Home Woolen Mills. The walls of West Charge Methodist Episcopal church, in course of con struction, were blown down. Several barns and small houses were upset aud torn to pieces, while shade and forest trees were snapped off and sent whirling through the air with terrific force. The corn anil fences through out the country are flattened, and the damage is very great, even if there has not been loss of life. The storm is the severest that has visited this vicinity for many years. Derricks Ntraek fejr I.lffatalac-Taaks Deatreyed. A special to the Titus ville Herald, from Triumph, says : About nine o'clock Monday evening three der ricks, belonging to Benner & Son, S. B. Kennedy Si Co., and W. B. Fores man, were struck by lightning and took fire, and the flames soon reaching two of the tanks, they were consum ed ; about four hundred barrels of oil flowed out upon the ground in a solid sheet of flame. The total destruction of the wells down the valley seemed almost inevitable, but the vigorous efforts of the men succeeded in build ing, a dani across the stream, and thereby saved the tanks of Currie, Uuidekoper and others. A large tank of Benner Si Son caught fire, but the flames were extinguished be fore much damage was done Grant fears were entertained of the flames reaching the wells of Luce & Barber, Raydure and Watson Si Co., which would have been in dangerous prox imity to the town, but the favorable direction of the wind prevented the further spread in this direction. The loss is about twenty-five hundred dol lars, mostly sustained by Forcsman and Kennedy & Co. Salt Lake. Salt Lake, August 27. The sale of Montezuma, Savage, Hiawatha, and Last Chance mines, last Saturday, was for $400,000 cash. There is quite an excitement to-day on the receipt of precious gems by the Savage Company from New Mexico. The rubies, emeralds, opals, garnets and sapphires are pronounced genu ine. Lapidaries of New York are to decide the diamond question. An other expedition is organizing here for gems. Specimens of gold-bearing rock were received to-day from Tintic assaying over $40,000 per ton. Wife Nanlerar Lyacka. Cincinnati, August 27. A special dispatch from Memphis, Tenn., says G. W. Martin, of Hipley county, Tenn., who a few days ago murdered his wife and threw the body in a pond, was taken out of jail on Sunday night by twenty armed men, who conducted bim to a place a few rods from the jail, where twelve charges of buck-shot from as many shot guns were emptied into his body. .

A large piece of the boiler fell in the house of William Quigley, instantly killing Mrs. Quigley. The hull will be Btopped about a month. The loss will be about twenty tnousanu dollars. Ta CaaUra la laala. London, August 29 Advices from India received here, report that the cholera is raging fiercely at Lahor gong and Meenaru. I n the former city it has carried off thousands of inhab itauts.and the greatest consternation prevails among the people. At Mee nam, also, its ravages have been terri ble. The authorities are exercising every means to check the progress of the fatal disease. POLITICAL ITEJIB. Gov. Noyes says he is of the opin- j ion that Grant will carry Ohio by j from 40,000 to 50,000 majority. j Grant's majority in Illinois in 1 St'.-S, j was 51,150. This year it will be much larger if the signs of the time are not all wrong. j Col. Moseby thus defines the term "Liberal Republicans :" "They are ' those who have been disappointed in ' getting into office, or have lecn kick- out when they were iu, and suddenly they become "Liberal" lilnTal to - ward tbcniselvcs-h.ving never ln anaitnMi.jl nf il lilutritlit v tiiU'nril flnr I , .. , v j ; one else, .mosuv is correct iu w uii - nilion. j The Mauch Chunk Gazette. knvs of an iron furnace at which !' hands are employed.

And while I have never regarded his hat or his trowsers as strong argu ments f"r or against him, there is no reason why we should shut our eyes to the fact that he is whimsical, affect ed, boorish and profane." A Geutleman of New York author izes the Time to announce that he will bet one thousand dollars on Grant and Wilson, on every State in the Union. Not less than'$10,000 to be dejiosited by each party, in any approved Trust Company, to abide the result. North Carolina is out of the woods, says the Boston Commonwealth. -It , gives 2.20H majority for Caldwell Re publican for Governor. This is a sad fii-ct for the Octnocracv and Assistant Democracy who burnt their powder on a claim of 1",00) majority for Mer rimon. Before Mr. Buckalew anticipted his nomination for the office he now seeks, he paid the followingdeserved compli ment to the man who is now his poncnt : "I know General Hartranft well, both as a public officer and a man. As Auditor General he has shown himself a most faithful, upright effi cient and accomodating officer, aud he would make an excellent Gov ernor." The Buffalo Evening l'oat, for a quarter of a century the advocate of most unimpeachable Democracy, rais es the people's standard of Grant and Wilson. At the West such conver sions are of common occurrence. The , calculation that only five per cent, of, the Democratic multitude would es chew "crow' is evidently too modest, '. for although many "swallowed"' it Im--gins to look as if few vould be able to "keep down."
