WEDNESDAY, . February U, 173. DEATH Of 3TEK EiBT. Ex-Governor Jons W. Geakt died suddenly and unexpectedly at bis residence in narrisburg on Satur day last On tbe previous erening be was apparently in bis upual robust health, and on Saturday, without a mnment's illness, or notice, while at the breakfast tabic, suddenly threw back his bead, and immediately cx- nirrd. it is sunnowd from disease of 1 - 11 the heart. The announcement of his sudden death has been received with sadness throughout the Common wealth. Such public honors will be paid his memory by the authorities at Ilarrisburg.ashis eminent civil and military services merit John W. Ut art was born near Mount ricasant, Westmoreland county, in 1819. His life was a mo mentous and honorable one. He fill ed numerous public stations, civil and military, with credit and honor to him self, and benefit to the country, and bis sudden taking off will be largely and sincerely regretted by thousand's who esteemed and admired bim. In the contest over the wills of the late IIoracx Greeley, it has been in conte6tibly proven by the testimony of his most intimate friends, that for weeks preceding bis death he was in sane. It has been shown that bis mental condition was not only known to the managing editor of tbe Tri bune, but to the leading politicians in and about 2ew York who had con trol of the "Liberal" canvass. And yet these men persisted in advocating the claims of a lunatic to the Fresi dential chair, and deceived millions of people into voting for bim. It is useless now to speculate upon what would have been the result, had Mr. Greeley wrecked in mind been elected. But no one, either friend or political opponent, of the dead editor, but must view with horror tbe wretches professing to be his friends, who made merchandise of his intel lect, and were willing to stake the fate of the Nation upon their success. Tbe men who knowingly attempted to elect a crazed man to the chief magistracy of the nation, are more traitors to the government than those who took up arms against it Tbe armed traitors commanded respect for their boldness, while the political Jesuits who under the specious cry of reform, attempted to elect a crazy man to tbe Presidency are simply sneak-tbieves of the lowest class. Tbe repeal of the franking privilege is most sweeping, and leaves no official in the enjoyment of that much abused trust Senator Ramsey, of Minnesota, is unreservedly accorded the credit of originating and putting the bill through the Senate, and of urging its passage in the House. e Dave not seen the bill, and can not therefore speak of its details, but it is sufficient to know that it cuts off tbe franking privilege of all parties whatever, including the President and Heads of Departments, of bureaus, and chief clerks, as well as Members and Senators. Of course, it will be impossi ble for these officials to pay the postage on all official matter sent through the mails out of their meager salaries. Hence Congress will be compelled to make an appropriation for this purpose for the next fiscal year before adjournment. Thus the Republicans in Congress have redeemed another pledge given to the people in their national platform adopted at Philadelphia on the Cth of last June. Oil WAMHISGTOS LETTER. The bill for tbe benefit of tbe Penn sylvania Railroad Company, that was railroaded through both houses of the Legislature with such indecent haste last week is said to have underlying it a proposition to place four tracks on that thoroughfare from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia, a commendable and perhaps a necessary work, but scarce ly requiring such hot Legislative baste. But will some member please explain the grave necessity for "Bill Kemble's" "city railroad bill being rushed through at the same break neck Bpeed T Gentlemen 1 there is a "little joker under somebody's hat A careful estimate has been made of tbe area of the timber lands of Pennsylvania and the average yield of lumber per acre, and the alarming conclusion is reached that three years stocking at the present rate of five million feet per year would entirely exhaust all the pine timber now stand ing. These statements are made after very careful estimates, and with such emphatic indorsements on the part of the most experienced lumber men in the State.that their truth is be-' yond doubt INDIA. London, February 4. A dispatch, dated August 4, is published to-day, stating that a town called Lepree, in the territory of Scinde, is nearly in ruins, in consequence of a terrible earthquake. The calamity came with such suddenness that escape was im possible. On the first alarm the in habitants rushed from their houses in to the streets where many were killed by falling buildings. Upwards of five hundred persons are supposed to have perished. The -earthquake was felt many miles away. Tbe inhabitants of Lepree, after the first convulsion was over, fled with their goods to the mountains. Washington, Feb. G, 187. "J. FIGl KE8 VS TEEMNU. Hon. Robt B. Roscvclt f New York is ambitious to be known as the great Congressional obstruc tionist of IMstrictiroprovements. He has just issued another pamphlet against our Board of Public Works under the caption of "Tammany the Second," containing the most reckless and abEurd assaults upon that body of improvers. Tho speech was made in Congress on the 24th ult, and it has since been proven that the Hon. member's opposition to the Board arose from its failure to accommo date him by keeping one of his strik ers in office at a high salary with nothing to do. The affidavits made to show this arc borne out by the spirit and want of truth of the speech itself which is beneath criticism and can be best appreciated by showing how some of his own figures make ont what he rails "fraud" in the re port of the Board. Thus he alleges that in paving twenty-nine streets and one alley, a length of fifty-six miles, instead of being what the board alleges on an average of thirty two feet in width at $3 50 per yard for wooden pavement and $3 20 per yard concrete, the cost is actually forty dollars per running foot and amounts to $11,827,200." Now, as one square yard at $3 50 (the highest price paid) is nine thirty-6econd part of the whole running foot it will cost only $12 44, instead of $40 as alleged, or only $37,- 32 per running yard. He charges disrepancy of $206,332 in the report of the Board as to tbe cost of a, 47 J feet of a thirty feet sewer over Tiber Creek, when his own statement shows that they reported tho number of feet at $102,50 per foot correctly as amounting to $253,482,50. He al leges an over charec and fraud of $13,491,20 in computing the sum due from tbe United States for concrete pavement along Judiciary Square, because be found 5th street set down accidentally in the report instead of 4th street oc which the work was actually done. These are specimens of tbe blundering recklessness and mi croscopic littleness of the man. THE MODOC WAR. Hon. A. B. Meacham, of Oregon, with Hon. Jesse Applegate and Sam uel Case. Indian ajrent Alsea. Ore gon have been appointed a peace commission to settle the difficulty with the Modoc Indians. Mr. Me cham will leave here to-dav for the scene of operations. It is alleged that the settlers are opposed to a peaceful settlement ; preferring exter mination. But whether tbe exter mination will be of the settlers or In dians does not appear. From the ex perience of the war thus far it is quite likely that the settlers will be generally wiped out before the troops can overcome tho Modocs by force. It is understood that the President will insist on a suspension of arms on the part of the troops, except for the prevention of attacks, until even handed justice is fairly offered the complaining aborigines. This is not only the proper thing, but will be the cheapest, best and indeed the only plan of stopping hostilities and saving the settlers from constant dread of a savage descent upon them. SENATOR POVEROY. Senator Pomeroy is here and will present himself in his 6eatin the Sen ate at once and make a denial of the bribery charges against him. The re port, or an interview by a newspaper reporter is not satisfactory to your correspondent If the showing of $7,000 bribe money in the Kansas Legislature and the charge made by Senator 1 orke was a put-up-iob and was entirely false, the innocent vie tim of such a fraud should indignant ly repudiate the election which result ed therefrom. Instead of this the re port states that Senator Pemcroy ad mitted the fairness of the election of Senator Ingalls. It would give us great pleasure to know that Senator Pomeroy was entirely innocent but tbe action of the House of Represen tatives of Kansas demanded this res iirnation and the Senate of his State has requested the U. S. Senate to in vestigate the charges against him This docs not look like his clearing himself before his own people, though it is never fair to condemn any man upon ex parte evidence. THE NEW SYNDICATE. The representatives of the new Syn dicate in JSew York sar that the na tional banks arc taking pTcat interest in the new loan. Their subscrip tions are daily increasing in amount From London also they have favora- - j r. , watuvices, sou expect to ciose me entire five per cent loan of $300,000, 000 this week. REPEAL OF THE BANKRCPT LAW. The . opposition to the general Bankrupt law docs not appear to come from regular business men. It is difficult to see why such assault is made upoa the law at this time. The N. Y. Importers and Grocers board of Trade yesterday sent a memorial to Congress against the repeal. C. M.

On Thursday night four men attacked a stage running from Mitchellsburg, on the Lebanon branch of tho L. & N. road, to Harrisburg. When the stage was within eight miles of Harrodsburg the leader, named Tebura McAneliy, came out from the roadside, pointed a pistol at the driver and commanded him to halt The driver stopped the stage, and McAneliy ordered him to take the mail out from under the scat, at the same time starting to climb up, when an .inside passenger named Roberts put a pistol through the window and shot the robber through the head, killing him instantly.

IlARRism ro, Feb. 7. A bill has been read in place in the Senate which, if passed will repeal all laws heretofore exempting real es tate from taxation. No exception is made in favor of any sava cemetery and church property and such real es tate as may belong to the jmblic char ity of tbe State, or those which re ceive State aid.. At an afternoon session held by tho House on Tuesday for tbe consider ation of bills on the private calendar, Mr. Mahon, of Franklin, gave notice that he should henceforth, object to all bills of such a nature where tho courts have full jurisdiction. He reminded the members of tho House that tbey had sworn not to violate the constitution, and that leg islation of this kind was forbidden A number of bills were then, for the reason given above, stricken off tbe calendar ; and it seems both Houses have adopted a rule directing the Speaker to strike off all such bills. These rules, faithfully adhered to, will be a means of preventing much pernicious legislation. Tbe centennial job was up before the House on Wednesday, having been reported from the committee on ways and means. After considerable discussion, tho bill was referred back to the same committee. On Wednes day it was strain reported to the House with the amount cut down from one million of dollars to five hun dred thousand. The bill provided that the 6um shall be paid in instal ments of one hundred thousand dol lars, towards the erection of buildings in Fairmount Park, for the use of the exhibition ; that said buildings shall cost not less than doublo tbe amount appropriated by the State, and 6hall remain in the Park as the property of the city of Philadelphia for such uses as the bill further provides. The House refused, by a large ma jority, to pay the fit section; a recon sideration was bad and the matter postponed for one week. As one way of raising funds for the same purpose Mr. M'Clure has had a bill passed i tbe Senate, taxing the cross receipts of the passenger rail ways of Philadelphia, arguing that they would be largely benefitted by tbe exhibition, and could well afford to pay the tax. This will certainly meet with more approval from tbe State at large, that the proposed ap propriation from the btate lreasury. A bill has also passed tbe House giving the Pennsylvania Rail Road power by a vote of the stockholders to increase its stock to such amount as they see fit, not exceeding the pres ent amount of stock ; also the issuing of bonds and securing the same by mortgages, to be recorded in the city of Philadelphia only. The bill seems to confer unlimited power in this di rection, and if our recollection serves us rightly was passed in the same shape six years ago, and was then vetoed by the Governor. The reason alleged for its passage at this time is that the company wish to lay a third rail between Philadelphia and Pitts burgh. The House has passed a supple ment to the act incorporating the Union Passenger Railway of Phila delphia, allowing that company to lay a double track on Market street frcm Front street to Ninth. Many of the property owners and business men on this street are opposed to this bill, alledgingit will ruin the street for business purposes, as there are al ready three tracks on this street A bill has been introduced in tbe Legislature re-organizing the Nation al Guard of the btate. I bo bill is quite lengthy, embracing upwards of seventy sections, and provides that the National Guard in time of peace shall consist of 20,000 men, to be as nearly equally distributed over the State as possible. , An act has passed the House fixing monthly return days for Cambria and Somerset counties. It is proposed to form a new coun ty out of parts of Lycoming, Brad ford, Sullivan and Tioga, to be called Minegua, and a bill has been intro duced for that purpose. , It is also proposed to look into the insurance laws of tbe btate ana com pare them with those of New York and Connecticut with a view of as certaining what is required to fully protect our citizens in this important matter. On Sunday morning last the Loch lei Hotel bad a very narrow escape from destruction by fire, and in fact did sustain considerable damage. The fire originated in a stable adjoin ing the rear of the hotel. The fire plugs were frozen up and much de lay was experienced in thawing tbein out Fires have been of almost nightly occurrence for a week past, and this trouble has been met with each time. Tbe city authorities are much censured for neglecting this matter. Boiler Eaploalwn. ii AiiBiwm na. Harrisblro, February 4.

One man was bringing a car load of coal to the fur nace of the battery, coming along tne elevated railway leading irom tne mines in the hillside to the various parts of the mill. At the time of the explosion he was just over the boilers and was blown up a considerable dis tance. His body presented a shock ing sight, appearing as though eyery bone in it had been crushed. The lower jaw of one roan was found ly ing by itself at a distance from the rest of the body. Five bodies were partially buried under tho ruins, and had to be removed by hard labor. The cause of tho accident is involv ed in some doubt, but it is rumored among those who ought to know that it was owing to the accumulation of gas in the boilers, caused by the boil ers not having been cleaned for some time. At 3 o'clock yesterday morn ing tbe steam pipe in tho old mill burster! aud tho chief engineer was awakened to repair the damage. This being accomplished the engineer re tired to bed, and did not start on his tour of inspection yesterday morning till 9 o'clock, A. m., and two hours after the usual time. Instead of go ing to tbe new mill, as was usual, he went to examine steam pipe in the old mill, ne had hardly performed this when the explosion in the new mill took place. Pitteburg Poxt 4'A' Explosion of m Trpe4o. New York, February 4. Special dispatches report that eight persons were killed and thirteen wounded, more or less dangerously, by a boiler explosion at Conshocken, three miles from orristown and thirteen miles from Philadelphia, in the foundry and rolling mills of John Wood A Brothers, yesterday afternoon at about a quarter past four o'clock. Tbe foundry constantly employs about five hundred men. Tbe works cover an area of eight acres, and are tbe largest in that section. The boiler had lcen examined on Saturday and implicit confidence had been placed in its reliability. Just before tbe fatal crash occurred, a man bad examined tbe boiler and found the valve perfectly loose, there being but three gauges of water at the time. Six were killed outright three of them being boys.

Wood, late Assistant Surgeon in the United States army, and daughter of Zachary Taylor. late President of the United States. She had presented a petition, ivhich he would not read, as it presented a state of facts that ought not to bo ex pected, viz., mat a daughter of Zachary Taylor was in need of assistance. lie bad assured ber that he did not believe there would be a vote against tbe bill, which be now introduced, granting to Mrs. Wood a pension of fifty dollars per month, to date from the death of ber husband, March 28, 1869, and it was passed by a nnani- moua rote. names of the killed are : Win. Hum mel, Jr., W. II. Carroll, Wm. Kclley, and m. liarrett. 1 be last two named died shortly after the explo sion. Tbe names of the three boys have not been ascertained, and it is feared that many of tbe wounded will die. The day workmen bad left for their homes at tbe time of the explo sion, and the night workmen were on their way to the foundry. There is a scene of chaotic confusion presented at tbe mill, half of which is in ruins. Philadelphia, February 4. At the boiler explosion at Conshohocken, one of the boys killed, James McCall, was literally cut in two. , . One of the most remarkable instan ces of presence of mind and the vir tue of soft soap was shown in Dalton, N. Y., the other day. A man work ing near a revolving shaft was caught in the main belt and was in a fair way of being dashed to pieces, when a boy standing beside the shaft seis ed a dipper of soap and threw it up on the belt, causing it to slip, and re lease the man from certain death. The new member from Greene, Mr. Ledwitb, appeared and was sworn in. A lengthy debate occurred on re committing the Centennial bill to re duce the amount. It was finally car ried. The bill was amended to five hundred thousand, and will be so re ported in the morning. Reports from committees as fol lows: Jury commissioners' bill: an act to tax sheep in Westmoreland county ten cents each. Lieutenant Colonel Noyes of Clin ton called up the supplement to the Pennsylvania Railroad allowing an increase of the capital stock. He explained the bill in a few words, that the company intended to lay four tracks between Philadelphia and Pittsburg, and did , net feel like doing it out of tbe earnings of the com pany. The bill passed with one dis senting voice, and no one called for the ayes or nayes. Mr. Brockway introduced a new bill making a county out of portions of Bradford, Sullivan, Lycoming and Tioga, to be called Mincqua, with the county seat at Minequa Springs in Lycoming county. Mr. Brockway claims that the proposed new county contains over 400 square miles and over 20,000 inhabitants. Harrisbcro, February 6.

" The ends of the spike and nail fac tories were blown down to the ex tent of about twenty-five feet, and the wall and roof of the new mill were blown away. Portions of the boiler and bricks and timbers from tbe ruin ed buildings were thrown in all direc tions and to great distances, some of the fragments being thrown to the hill side beyond Carson street, a distance or three or four squares. ." Immediately after the cxDlosicn' me crowa at once set to work to re move, the debns and recover the bodies of those, killed. Fortunatelv those who were injured, and not kill ed, were bo slightly hurt that they were auie to get out without assist ance, seven dead bodies were found. one being taken out from the debris yesterday afternoon. Nearly all those who were killed weru more or less mutilated, some of them to a frightful extent . ; The bodies were also blackened to a considerable ex tent, as though burned. Two of the killed were found in the new mill many feet away from all the debris. , MaiiMHQi lost, Hoi Kestorei Just 'published, a new edition of Dr. Calrer- weii a i tichratcd tsaay on the radical cure (with out nied Hn) of Spermatorrhoea or Seminal Weak. nesa.
