WEDNESDAY, January 22, tsTS. A bill has passed both Houses of the Legislature increasing the Gov ernor'! aalarj from Fire to Ten thou sand dollars. Or member of the House, Hon. Jacob R. McMillix, bas been placed on the following committees Educa tion, Banks, and Manufacotries. IIakrisbi'&q has spasms again, be cause a proposition has been intro euccd into the Constitutional Conven tion, looking to the removal of the State Capital to Philadelphia. GaANT and Wilsox'8 majority, it is now ascertained, was 59,137, be ing nearly half a million more than in 1868. The Republicans carried ' every State in the Union but six. The Speaker of the Senate has made Senator Lemon, of this district, Chairman of the standing committee on accounts, and bas placed him on the Committees on Education. Public Printing, Agriculture and Public Buildings. Yesterday, the 21 Pt, was the day fixed by law for the inauguration of Ja rWornnr. and the election of United States Senator, and we pre sume that Governor Hartranft was duly installed, and Senator Cameron elected. . The State of Louisiana is at pres ent being run by two Governors and two Legislatures. If the old axiom that "the State which is governed the least is governed the best," be. true, then Louisiana is in a bad way, as 6he is just now the mod governed State in the Union. The first article of the new consti tution, now being framed by the con vention in Philadelphia, has been adopted, and provides that all gener al elections shall be held in Novem ber, and all municipal, borough and township elections on the third Fri day in February. The official vote in Clearfield coun ty on Prohibition is for license, 926 ; against license, 1,406 majority against, 480. Of thirty-one election districts in the county, nine give ma jorities for license and twenty-two acainsL Clearfield boroueh voted 113 for license to 161 against Speaker Elliott has issued his writ for the bolding ol a special elec tion in Greene county, to fill the va cancy- occasioned by the death of j - John Hagan, member elect from that countr. The election will be held on the 28th of this month. The Governor has issued bis proc lamation announcing the ratification bv the oeoDle at the last election, of - a the Amendment to the Constitution, providing for the election of State ,. . r .1. Treasurer, i nere were cast, ior iuc amendment 81,620 votes and against it 4,393 votes. And now, "Local Option" bas gained another victory. The bor oughs of New Brighton and Beaver Falls voted on the question last week, and gave an aggregate majority of four hundred against license. This indicates that the county of Beaver will eivc a larsre majority in favor of the law. Hon. Daniel M. Smyser, Piew dent Judge of the Montgomery judicial district died at Gettysburg on the 11th instant, after a week's ill- nesB. Tne ornstown uaiiymiicraia savs : "The deceased was a man of strong intellectual power. As presid ing Judge of this District for ten years, dating from Jan. 5th, 1 852, he bad ample opportunity to display his rare legal abilities. He devoted his entire energies to his profession and worked with a will and a per sistence that no doubt shortened his life." A bill is before our Legislature pro viding for the abolition of the usury laws. These laws are a dead letter in our statute books, and might as well be repealed at once. Who knows of any money being obtained now-a-days at six per cent ? Banks, bankers, and all classes of moneyed men demand, and greedily take all they can wring out of borrowers. The laws are daily aud hourly viola ted, and had better be wiped out, than allowed to stand, teaching the people to viqjate other laws, because these can be violated with impunity. The Democrats of the Missouri Legislature have "floored" Frank Blair, and elected Lewis V. Boot for U. S. Senator, to suceeed Blair on the 4th f March next So, anoth er recalcitrant Republican bas met his reward. The contest was a very bitter one, and op to the last Blair tbourht be would win. The vote stood 94 for Boot, 47 for Blair. Thus one by one, are the Democrats contemptuously casting aside squeez ed Liberal Republican oranges. Boot is a prominent citizen of St Louis, a Democrat of the old fogy Bourbon stamp, and was a warm sympathizer with the south during the rebellion. ' The President has issued an exec utive order to the effect that after the 4th day of March next, no person shall be allowed to hold a Federal office, at the same time that he is en joying a 'State or Territorial office, and our fellow townsman, Wm. J. Baer, Esq., agreeing with the Presi dent in his hostility to this kind of double-teaming, has introduced a res olution in the convention proposing to make it unconstitutional in this State to bold a State office while bolding one under the United States. Evi dently the lucky fellows with two sil ver spoons in their mouths have got to take pap with only one, hereafter. The votes for Governor were i-.l i v. .. , -1 :Ainl rn rr-nt inn ;COUUlVU llj 11113 U5UH juimv"""1" of the two Houses at Harr.sburgon Thursday last, and the result official ly declared, as follows Joha F.

C Orogm-- In the Constitutional Convention the business thus far, has been mainly the introduction of resolutions pro posing amendments, and their name is legion; apparently a portion of the members conceive themselves to be in a Legislative assembly where the most minute details may be provided for by enactments. Up to date but two new sections have been adopted in committee of the whole. The first of these provides for bolding the State election upon the day of the Presidential election in November, instead of in October, as is now the law, and the second changes the day for holding the Spring election from March as at present, to the third TW.ul.yof February.. The latter provision docs not apply to cities 100,000 inhabitants or more. of The Baltimore American says That is a sueirestive paragraph in the cable news which states tnat ibf, 000 emigrants left Liverpool for the United States dunnir the past year. Wefcardlv realize how exeat is the exodus from Europe to this country until we are met witn 6ucn piain ng- ores as these. It must be remember ed that this represents only a portion probably not half of trie great nae nf hnmsmtr which is settinff west ward toward us. Emigrants are largely a class of industrious working people, who bring with them an ear nest intent and willing hands to la bor. They represent an immense ad dition to the material wealth of their new home, and help to build it up and add to its strength and prosperity, The old time 6aymg that this is a refuge for the oppressed of all nations needs amending now into a new axi om that it is also the land of promise for all men struggling for a foothold in life. In Washington city a few days since, in tnc first uongregauouui church, the importance of having good . n 1 editors was considered, and prayer was offered, especially in behalf of the Washington journals, though the editors of other latitudes were not forgotten. We have had a notion for some time, that a majority or our Democratic brethern are "past pray ing for," but happily the elections are all over fov the prcsent.and perchance some stray beam of grace may pene trate the cloud of with which they enveloped themselves as with a rarmcnt We shall watch with much anxiety the effects of this spec ial intercession on Whitelaw Reid, Brick. Pomerot, Theodore Tilton, Victoria Woodhcll and a few oth er fellows of our craft, and if signs of improvement become visible, we shall intercede with the First Congrega tional church to try their band on a few of our subscribers, whom we wish to have converted from the er ror of their ways, learned to be just, and taught to otce no man aught but love. This .effected, we sball all be ready for the millennium. THE OREAT STOatH. A Ltu-ft-e Xnnafcer nf rtmn Perishes!' St. Pacl. Minn., Jan. 15. Re ports received to-day increase tne deaths by the late storm, as follows: Thirteen in the vicinity of Lake Kins ley, (ix miles from Lake Crystal : six school children, who had been attend ing school between Fort Ridgway and Beaver Falls ; a man named Wol- vcrtoh, across the river from Manka to. Five more cases are reported from Alexandria, making 22 in all. A dispatch from Bergus Falls re ports seven more bodies found, and estimates that within a radius of twenty-five miles the victims will reach fifty. A German named Lud icker. of Hastings, and his team per ished a few miles from this city. One of the sadest cases reported, and one illustrating the fearful nature of the storm, came from New Ulm, on Tuesday p. M.; a man whose wife was sick started for New Ulm for a doctor, leaving her alone at home. No doctor would venture out in the storm, but one promised to go next day. The man started back, and was frozen to death when half way home. Next day when the doctor Tcacbcd the house he found the woman bad given birth to a child and both bad frozen to death. A commercial traveler in this city, wha was caught in the storm, rear New Ulm, and witnessed its terrible severity, gives it as his opinion that it has resulted in greater loss of life, and greater damage to the State than did the Sioux massacre of 1862. Winona, Minn., Jan. 15. The body of a man frozen to death was picked up in a garden on the south side or the river at Medalia on Thurs day. He evidently lost himself, was overcome by exhaustion and cold and lay down and died. A dispatch from Lincoln station, on the St Paul and Sioux City road. on Sunday, says: Mr. R. Kirk start ed for tne timber to procure a load of wood. His cattle were frozen but tic was missing. Later. Mr. Kirk was round near Garden City, along the Sioux City road, on Saturday, dead. The number frozen west of Manka- to foots up twentv-six; as follows: Lake Crystal, 2: Medalia, 5; St James, 10; Mountain Lake, 2; Win dom, 3 ; Heron Lake and Worthing ton, 3. These are given as reliable. All the above named points report a number of persons still missing. A report was received at Mankato, on Monday night, from Minnesota Falls, which says that eleven persons had been found frozen to death. Seven persons 4bree women, two men and two children were found in a sleigh, dead. A report from Redwood rails says six persons were frozen to death, as far as heard from, in that neighbor hood. A' party constating of four persons. a man, wire, child and nephew star ted from Redwood to go to Marshall on Tuesday, but when within a mile and a half of Marshall they were overtaken by the storm and lost their way. The nephew Trozc to death. On Wednesday afternoon the child died in its mother's arms. On Mon day mornicz, when found, the man's legs and arms were badly frozen, and the woman had one band frozen. OI B HliailBrid LETTER. Harrisbiro, January 16. 1873. Perhaps it might be of interest to your readers to know what has been going on at the capital during the past week. ' At the caucus of the Republican members of the House, on Saturday. Hoa. William Elliott of Philadelphia, was nominated on the first ballot, re ceiving 40 votes to 14 for John l. Mitchell of Tioga.

The matter of minor offices was re ferred to a committee of seven, with Instructions to report on Monday. Here Philadelphia and Allegheny succeeded in carrying off most of the snoils. securinir tozether not less than ifrlitMn nlaees nut of thirty-six. Of the remainder Chester and Lancaster appropriated five. This left a very limited number for the country mem bers, who were somewhat struck at the smallness of the divy, but they submitted to it with good grace. In the Senate Republican caucus. Mr. Anderson, of Allegheny, received the nomination for Speaker, and Mr. Russell Errctt, of Pittsburg, was nominated for Chief Clerk. As to the minor officers the State f AiWhnnv acrain showed herself wide awake, and camera for five more places. ' . On Tuesday at 12 o'clock, M.

A fire occurred this morning at the late residence of Edwin Forest in this city. A portion of the library was destroy ed, including nearly all bis valuable Shakesperean collection.

TircsriLLE, Jaa. 17. A special to tbe Herald says: An accident occurred on tbo Allegheny Valley Railroad at noon to-day, near Scrub- grass. A sleeping car on the train from Pittsburg jamped tbe track and was precipitated into the river. A Mr. Ritter, of Tittsburg, was killed, and Joseph Ross, Pittsburg, John M. Rieb, Oil City, and Charles Cornell, Oil City, badly and three others slightly" injured, among whom was Superintendent Hepburn, of the Oil Creek Railroad. orm WAHHiseTox lbtteb. ; " Washington, Jan 16, 1873, f's CHEAP ELECTRICAL POWER.- - 3fow that the postal telegraph bill is about to come up for action, it will h interesting to kuw that Dr. Loo- tnU' thory of drawinir a Bupply of electricity from an electrical stratum at an elevated position in the atroos- phere is engaging tne attention oi toe government authorities. Dr. Loomis has just been interviewed, with a view to estimate the chances of sav ing a few millions to tho government, and yet tbe Senate committee on com merce has reported adversely to incor porating a company for the express purpose of testing the Loomis theory at their own expense, though a bill for the purpose unanimously passed tho House at the last sossion, una not a dollar is asked from tbe government to perform the test The probability of utilizing the Loomis theory to an immense advantage is growing great er in the public mind as the subject is investigated. It involves no less a consummation devoutly to be wished," than securing a universal and unlitu ited supply of light, beat and motive power from the invisible air above the earth. That such a Bupply exists, is generally admitted by scientists, and the means of reaching and controlling it is the only new project that lr. Loomis proposes, and for this purpose he proffers to use the tops of high mountains, anchored balloons, or mod ern towers of Babel. As Dr. Frank lin drew the lightnings from heaven by the use of a kite, when a storm drew a part of the electrical stratum near the earth,-o Dr. Loomis propo ses to go a step further, and to carry the war of intellect upon this physical power above, and cut off a part of its normal base of supplies, ith such an object in view, it has been suggest ed that Congress should at once ap propriate $100,000 to secure a thor ough test of the Loomis idea. Surely, it should not refuse legislative sanc tion to company of individuals wljo desire to mako the necessary expen menu. CREDIT MOBILIER PROSECUTION. The position of counsel for the gov ernment in the Credit Mobilier prose cutiona has been tendered to Hon. A F. Perry, who has formally accepted, Judge Stanley Mathers, who was pre sident of the Cincinnati convention, was also tendered the appointment, but declined. Mr. Perry will partici pate in the investigation now pending before tho Wilson Credit Mobilier and Union Pacific Railroad investigating committee, for tbe purpose of famil iarizioir himself with the details of tbe business. . , PRESIDENTIAL' RECEPTION. The first reception of the season came off at the White House last evening. The President and family occupied the red room the President being supported by (Jen. Babcock on the right, and Gen. Dent on the left, and all in full evening dre s. Mrs. Grant was at times supported by Mrs. Fish, Mrs. Judge Dent Mrs. Sharp, and Miss Nellie Grant The arrange ments were perfect, and the evening passed very pleasantly, with the usual crowd of youth, beauty, middle aged and old ladies and gentlemen, who were politely attended to by the at tache of the White House. The us ual number of rich and extravagant dresses was on exhibition, but the hours passed pleasantly enough until 10 o'clock, when tho guests began to file out of the rooms, and the old pre sidential mansion was left thus early alone to its legitimate occupants. To strangers, these receptions are a great treat, as great and small meet on one common level of American sove rcignty. LOUISIANA'S SENATOR. ihe legislature of liouisiaua. on Wednesday, elected John Ray U. S. Senator, who left immediately for Washington. Tbe Warmoth legisla ture took a ballot for U. . Senator, but foiled to elect, though Warmoth received a small plurality over several candidates. The new Congress will be called upon to decide who 19 ben ator upon tbe merits of the respective legislatures, a decision upon which will doubtless be reached before the adjournment of the -present session Tbe New York Tribune published a wail over tbe success of Lieut Gov ernor Pinchbeck as Senator, but this is not tbo first time that paper has gone wrong. . SOUTHERN REPRESENTATION. It is said some changes will be probably made in tbe cabinet after the fourth of March, and that the Sonth will be entitled to a represent ative, in which case ex-Senator Poole will undoubtedly be the choice'of the President As a constitutional advi ser there is no man more deserving or more capable ol performing well the duties of any of the cabinet chairs. His popularity extends among loval men over the entire South. . . CONGRESS. The Souate has just passed a bill authorizing the extension of the Point Lookout Railroad into tbe District of Columbia. The House fixed , net Tuesday for the consideration of the postoffice appropriation bill in commit tee of tbe whole ; ordered an inquiry whether anv member had been paid as attorney for the Credit Mobilier or the Union Pacific Railroad; passed the legislative appropriation bill; and the bill for the consolidation of the Indian tribes into a territorial govern ment was discussed till tbe adjourn ment on Wednesday.

A Sleepias- Mtk Precipitated lat the Allegheny River Oae Passenger Killed and Several Inared A Bro ken Ball the Allegheny Valley Bailraad Causes the Aeeldent. By the calamity of a broken ruil, a sleeping car attached to an express train on tbe Allegheny Valley Rail road, was yesterday precipitated from the track and down an embankment into the Allegheny river. The frac tured iron was encountered near Scrub Grass station, at twelve o'clock noon, by the train which left this city at eight o'clock the evening previous. Owing to numerous land-slides, un usual delays were experienced, and it was not until late in the morning that the ordinary running time could be made. All the cars, of which there were three for the accommoda tion of passengers, were well filled. Suddenly a lurch on the part of the. sleeping car, broke the coupling at taching it to the balance of the train. For a few yards it bounded over the ties, startling its inmates with a sudden sense of danger, and then with a plunge went over the bank, down twenty feet to the icy river.. As soon as the jerk by which the coach parted from its companion was felt by the engineer, brakes were put on and the train stopped. The cars remaining on the track were instantly deserted, passengers and officials alike rushing to the assistance of those who were in peril of death. It was with suqrie and pleasure that many ot those who had taken tbe involuntary plunge bath were seen to clamber out unhurt, but further examination dis closed the fatal seriousness of the ac cident. One of the first removed was Mr. Joseph Ross Protbonotary of this county who was found to be badly hurt- After him was removed the body of Mr. James Reiter of Allegheny, quite dead, with marks of terrible wounds upon him. follow ing, was Mr. Rich of Oil City who was found not to be seriously hurt These comprised the casualties among the passengers. Of the employees of tbe railroad company, Wiluam Garrett road master, Wi)Iiin K'P'n. brakemani and C. H. Cornell, freight conductor, were found to be slightly injured. Superintendent Hepburn, of tho Oil Creek Railroad, was also slightly. AH of these were removed to a botef near the scene of the accident, but were able subsequently to continue the journey as far as Oil City, which point was reached at six o'clock p. M., and where they received the care of the surgeons of the road. Mr. Heiter, who was killed, was a prominent business man of this city. He has for a number of years been engaged in the manufacture ot boilers and iron tanks, on Water street, near the Point, and resided on Irwin avenue, "Allegheny. He was about forty year? of age, and bad been married but a few years. His re mains were placed upon the express train East, which arrived at the scene shortly after the accident, and reached the city at nine o'clock last evening. Mr. Ross was taken to Oil City and placpd under the care of an exper ienced phvsieian afr the Petroleum House. lie is receiving every attenr tion at the hands of tho railroad offi cials, and telegraphed to his family last night that though his injuries, which arc mostly internal, are severe, he has strong hopes of recovery.- Tho latest advices show that none of the coaches left the track with the exception of the one in which the in juries were received. The rail was probably broken by tho car preceding the last, as no shock was experienced by those occupying the others, and the cause of tbe accident was a mystery uulij thp track was subse quently examined- The cnF went down front first, but rolled over when about half way between tho edge and the water, and remained on its side. The fires were extinguished, otherwise the fearful scene of the Cross Cut ' horror might have been again enacted. Fortunately the car was well built and of sufficient strength to resist tho shock of the descent, o which fact may be attrib uted tho smajj of life- It is the first fatal accident which Lim hap pened since the road was built, which speaks well for the efficiency . and care of the officers Pittsburgh Dis patch 18A, ' Extvnnrdinary Bank Babhery, Lancaster, Jan. 16 A daring; robberv was perpetrated here yester day on the Mechanics' Bank. Be tween twelve and one o'clock two men engaged tbe cashier's attention, who wad alone in the bank, by Belling $75 in gold and silver, th latter being in- small pieces. One or the men had on screeching boots, and walked continually while ig confederate and the cashier were counting tho' n'i6rey. Pending the negotiation, a third party entered the bank by a rear window and entered the vault, which was open, and ab stracted convertible bonds to the amount of over six thousand dollars, and other registered and judgment bouds amounting to over forty thous and dollars.. The thieves, four in number, were seen about the bank during the fore noon, and tho men who entered from the rear were 'seen by women in the restaurant under the bank, but were, of course, not Buspected.
