A very bitter warfare is being
waged l)ctwecn the organs of the late
allies against the Republican party.
The "Liberal" papers are overflowing
with gall and bitterness at the humil
itating and contemptuous manner
with which they are treated Jy their
late friends of the Democratic party,
while the Democratic papers have
nothing but words of contumely and
ridicule for their late vote fellows.
It is a very pretty fight as it stands,
and we hope wilt eventu ate as did
that between the Kilkenny cats.
It is time for all Republicans, who
lave neglected to see whether they
are assessed and.feglstered, to attend
to that all-injportant business. Do
not wait until within ten days of the
election to examine the registry list
and see that they contain the names
of all the Republican voters in the
eounty. The time to do this is at
present But three weeks now re
mains until the election, and this is
not too long for this business. Let
the committee men in each township
give thcr personal attention tootle
aubject of the enrollment, and sec
that there arc no omissions of Re
publicans from the'lists.
The new Masonic Temple at Phil
adelphia is to be dedicated on the
Cthinst. The brethren arc making
extensive preparations and the ser
vices promise to be of a highly in

the display on the morning of the

largest Masonic demonstration ever
witnessed on this continent. All the
Grand Commandcries in the United
States and subordinate commandcries
hav been invited, and a large num
ber lave signified their intention to
be present Masons taking part in
the ceremonies will be required to ap

A Democratic paper in Detroit,
Michigan, has at last realized that
the Democratic party ought to have
surrendered when Lec did, and it
says so. The Chicago ZYwrf, al

cattle for the English market seems
to have been successfully established
on a small scale, and bids fair tc in

affect the price here. An American
steer, taken in good condition from
New York by steamer, loses about
fifty pounds on the voyage, but a

his weight. As to quality, the Eng

really short of meat, owing to disease
among her cattle and that of other
countries whence her supplies have
been drawn. The price advanced so
much as to induce importation from
this country, and now the best stock
is being shipped by every steamer

York. Twcnty-foflr head go in ev

The growth ot the dairy interests
in this country is one of the aston
ishing facts of the times. This
branch of industry now demands a
separate class of trading interest,
and in New York these have organ
ized a separate Butter and Cheese
Exchange. The president of this
new association estimates that du
ring tho current year three and a
half million paakages of butter and

The return of specie jmvmcnts is
pnxiouslv desired bv all classes of
people, except those whose depend
ance is upon instability of our cur
rency. A sudden rise in t he premi
um of gold never fails to elicit strong
and general expressions of regret and
disappointment. A fall in that pre
mium iu the country produces a gen
eral feeling of satisfaction, and peo
ple, taking counsel from those wishes,
are apt to consider such a decline as
indicative of a permanent tendency
in financial matters. This, however,
is assuming too many points in the
financial problem as settled. Legis
lation is but.one of these points, and
controls but a portion of tho whole.

To read only the representations
made by the oily tongued agents of
various railways companies before
the Senatorial Committee on Trans
portation, is to become convinced
that the great problem of cheap trans
portation has been accomplished, and
that the railroad companies are the
very embodiment of purity, phil
anthrapy and enlightened public spir
it. These naughty farmers in the
Northwest, who are unable to pay
their taxes 'vith corn at 15 cents per
bushel are but impertinent brawl
ers, and should be knocked out of ex
istence as chronic disturbers of the
public peace. The iarmers, however,
will have their innings next Con
gress. New York and Chicago look with
deep anxiety to the effect of the en
largement of the Canadian canals
and the improvements of the St. Law
rence river. Upon these projects
the Canadian Government has al
ready spent a hundred millions and
will spend two hundred millions
more. To Chicago they open a di
rect trade with Europe, both export
and import, with the advantage of
lower freights from the employment
of the same hips both ways. New
York reminds her Western .rival that
the St. Lawrence, is available for
navigation, only four months in the
year. She threatens to knock the
national trado endways by enlarging
the Erie canal. All the New York
journals, except the Tribune, founded

der a shaft which was going at the
rate of two hundred revolutions per
minnte, her hair, which was very
long, caught in the kntickle-joint, and
in on instant it was torn entirely from
her head, taking with it all the flesh
and muscles on her head. "From a

she realized was a tickling sensation

regret was-the fright it would give
her motlwr. The Bcalp, with its beau
tiful long locks of hair, was curled
and entwined around the shaft at the
joint, and when the mill was stopped
it was taken down, bnt no one had
sufficient presence of mind to place it
on her head. It is nearly perfeet,
and the doctors have determined to

a communication from Mendca Cohen, ;
Esq. President of the Pittsburgh and!

terest on its second mortgage bonds,'
held by the City of Baltimore, due '
on the 1st day of July, 1-7 i, and so-j
IiCiting the indulgence ot the City.
It appears that when the live million
mortgage was created, the company
thought it would be enough to liqui
date the floating debt and finish the
construction and equipment of the
road. The indebtedness was, howev
er, found to be larger than appeared
upon the books, and the cost of the
completion and restoration of the
road far exceeded the estimates of
the engineers. Moreover, the sever
ity of the past winter, while largely
decreasing the revenue, added great
ly to the expense of maintaining and
operating the road. The company,
therefore, finds itself embarrassed by
a iloating indebtedness of more than
three and a half millions, with less
than two and a half million of second
mortgage bonds available for its liq
uidation. The Cempany states that
it has not paid, either to corporators
or individuals, any portion of the in

tensive farmer of that State: "Mr.
Dalrymple is evidently a believer in
the doctrine that after work has once
commenced in the fields, it is unwise
to indulge in play spells on any pre
text whatever. This year he devot
ed 2,000 acres to wheat, and, accord
ing to his estimates, has yielded at
tho rate of twenty-one bushels per
acre giving him a total of 42,000
bushels as his total wheat product
for the year 1873.. In just" thirty
days from the time tho first resolution
was made by Lis reapers Lis crop has
been safely harvested, every surplus
bushel has gone on its way to the
eastern markets, and tlio money re

A Icrrililo flceident occurred at
T.igmecniii i-ircei crobsiug, iouiii
side, yesterday afteniaon. A young
girl named Catherine Jane Ncbel,
twelve years of age, was attending
school or. the hill, and about Tour
o'eloek was descending to her home
on Eighteenth street. As the ap
proached the track, a train was H en
coining along, quite -slowly, but still
fait enough to rentier it a matter e f
hardihood to ;-ros the track before it
should come up. The unfortunate
girl kept on. Arriving at the track,
idie was about forty feet in advance
of the locomotive, and would have
crct-scd in safety, but, just as fehe
stepped on the rail, her foot slipped,
aud the girl fell on the track, and an
other moment lay maugled beneath
cd the wheels of the locomotive.
The deceased was a blight, promis
ing girl, and a general favorite among
her school mates. PilUbunjh Vis

The number of deaths is fearlul to
contemplate. The mortality is be
yond precedent, and it looks as
though comparatively few will get
well. Thus far very few have got
about, while some linger along be
tween life ami death. In some few
instances whole families have been
swept out of existancc in the short
space of one week.
