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.
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

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-'

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
Washington, Feb. G, 187. "J.
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.
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 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

it is never fair to condemn any man

Louisville Ky., February 3. 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.

fate of their leader, fled, but were

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

, They had been employed there and
were struck by flying pieces of the
boilers or of timber. 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 to tbe new mill, as was usual, he
went to examine steam pipe in the

this when the explosion in the new

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.

In the immediate vicinity eitrht
hundred men were at work at the
awful moment of the explosion, which

wrecked the rear, front and fides of
the building. "
The ends of the spike and nail fac
tories were blown down to the ex

wall and roof of the new mill were
blown away. Portions of the boiler
and bricks and timbers from tbe ruin
